3 Stories of Heroism in a World of Tyranny

If you think you can sit out this war against the Communist take-over of the United States of America, you are sadly mistaken. If you believe there is no ongoing take-over, you are wildly uninformed. Either way, your country … indeed the world … is teetering on what ordinary Americans do next.

Throughout the entire CCP virus pandemic, no matter what you believe is the truth about where it came from or how contagious it was, heroes emerged. These were people just like you and me. When confronted, however, with the trampling of their basic civil rights based on the science and facts as they interpreted them, they chose to push back.

The kind of courage it takes to stand up for our U.S. Constitutional and inalienable rights was witnessed throughout America and beyond. To highlight their stories is not enough. We’ve got to learn not only why they stood up and what kind of person it takes to do such a thing, but how critical their fight was in the grand scheme of survival from tyranny.

A group of such extraordinary people is worth studying.

Ian Smith, the long-bearded co-owner of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, NJ, along with partner Frank Trumbetti, butted heads with state officials over their Governor’s paralyzing coronavirus lockdown orders. After average citizens supporters stepped up to help with their legal defense funds (an amount said to total about $250,000.00), New Jersey Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy “and his cronies,” according to Smith, had seized “100%” of the money. But that’s only a small part of the tyranny the partners faced.

After receiving and ignoring several citations during the summer of 2020, the two were arrested and “charged with contempt, obstruction and violating the Disaster Control Act. They reopened the gym less than a week later. The Bellmawr Borough Council voted 5-to-1 to rescind Atilis’ business license. … ‘We’re not going to back down — this is not about opening up a gym…. This is about our constitutional rights, and he has violated them,’ Trumbetti said, referring to [NJ Gov.] Murphy,” according to NBC News.

That article, written on August 14, 2020, further revealed that “Trumbetti doesn’t deny the danger of the virus. He said his mother died of it in May. But he believes he’s created a safe environment at his gym, where he said no one to his knowledge has tested positive after more than 20,000 check-ins since May. ‘They made the mistake of thinking we’re two dumb gym owners. We’re way more than that,’ Trumbetti said. ‘We know how to fight with words and logic, not just fists and muscles.’” That is exactly how this fight must be won.

By December, according to Ian, after numerous arrests and citations, with over 84,000 visits to their facility, there was not one reported case of the CCP virus. Yet, because so few other business owners were willing to join this courageous duo, Smith and Trumbetti received the brunt of the Governor’s ire and targeting. Where were the other Patriots?

Smith pointedly said, “Free men don’t ask permission. Or for forgiveness. No science. No shutdown.” He is 100% right.

Kimberly Reicks and Emily Peterson are fighters, too. Known affectionately as the “Mama Bears” from Iowa, they fought back when their children were being strong-armed by the schools’ mandatory masks and pandemics policies. They stood up and spoke before their school board every single meeting. Their efforts were infectious, and a movement began. 

Because of their courage, the state of Iowa eventually passed a law that schools and public businesses cannot mandate masks. Today the moms travel the country sharing their experiences. But like all tales of bravery above and beyond, there is so much more to their story, too.

According to the Des Moines Register, Kimberly has now filed a lawsuit against the school district. In it, she alleges that “she sent a doctor’s note in December informing the district that her kindergarten-age daughter should be excused from wearing a mask. The note said the face mask had caused a staph infection on the child’s face.” What happened next is simply infuriating, and very telling about the enemy we face.

“Reicks alleges in the suit that her daughter was removed from a desk she shared with other children and required to sit alone. Reicks also claims that after she publicly complained and attended a protest outside of the School Board’s March 22 meeting, the district retaliated by adding a plexiglass enclosure to the desk.” Is it any wonder youth suicides have increased at an alarming rate over the past year?

Thanks to these relentless “Mama Bears,” on May 20, 2021, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill making masks optional in schools. It was called the “Students First Act.” The governor reportedly told the pair, “you did this; your efforts did this.”

It’s not just Americans who’ve bravely pushed back when authorities have stomped on their civil liberties. The incredible actions of a Pastor in Alberta, Canada, by the name of Artur Pawlowski of Street Church Ministries, deserve mention, as well. 

Recall that this Pastor’s video went viral on social media after Alberta Health Services (AHS) inspectors tried to clear his church during Passover services. Artur, who is from Poland and has publicly spoken about his first-hand experiences with Communism as a kid, chased the inspectors out of his church, calling them “Nazis” and “Gestapo.” One cannot watch the video without getting the same impression, especially given that the intrusion occurred during holy services on Easter weekend.

On June 28, 2021, the Pastor was “found guilty of contempt for what a judge deemed ‘deliberate and willful’ breaches of judicial orders requiring them to follow COVID-19 public health rules,” according to the Canadian CBC. Artur, along with his brother and another man, will be sentenced in July.

There is an oft-repeated story that, upon leaving the Constitutional Convention in Independence Hall in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked what kind of government we have? “A Republic,” he replied, “if you can keep it.” What is lesser known is what he purportedly said even before that.

As related by US Congressman Sam Graves (R-MO) recently, the Convention’s purpose was to “devise a system of government that would keep the worst intentions of man in check. Because, as Franklin put it earlier in the Convention, ‘the first man put at the helm will be a good one, nobody knows what sort may come afterward.’ Because, as the Founders knew, absolute power corrupts absolutely.” And, here we are.

We’ve seen great heroism and sacrifice during the course of the CCP pandemic. Some will say the people described herein have not been heroes at all. Rather they’ve been selfish and have put others’ safety last. 

But as more facts emerge about the origins of the virus and the science that drove the policy afterward, many are asking, what happened to our country? When the real question ought to be, what did you do to save our Republic from the tyrants who now man the helm?

I love this article. It’s important that we remember those willing to stand their ground against tyranny. While I find it distressing to see how few Americans are willing to stand up with them, I hope articles like this will encourage them to do so.

This Stubborn Frenchman is Calling for Reparations

All I’m asking for is a decent hand in the game. I’ve already suffered enough oppression in my life, and since freedom has cost me so much, I’m inclined to ask for a little government assistance. Especially since my skin color and biological sex do not entitle me to a chance for a SCOTUS nomination or probably any other highfaluting government…

Demand a Change, or Take Your Tuition Dollars Elsewhere!

The time has come for a reset. Parents must start investigating the makeup of college faculties and administrations. If it is made up of hardcore leftists and Marxists, then take your tuition dollars elsewhere. Take a look at the curricula. If it’s blatantly slanted towards leftist-Marxist ideology and slanted against the West and America, then take your tuition dollars elsewhere…

An Agenda to Defeat the Marxist Takeover of America in the Midterm Election

Contrary to what Republicans have done previously, they must produce a realistic and achievable agenda that proves to Americans that they deserve to be voted for. In reality, all they need to declare and itemize are the exact opposite of the very executive orders that Biden has been pushing onto the American people. All because of the vindictiveness against Trump and a desire to globalize America into the New World Order…

More than 800,000 people perished in America alone; drug use, alcoholism, and suicide rates escalated; children’s social skills and educational performance plummeted, and businesses and family budgets collapsed. And following repeated public misinformation regarding the monster’s bioengineered “gain-of-function” origins and originators, lots of people increasingly wondered…

One Size Fits All is the Very Essence of Socialism

They blame it all on the unvaccinated because Socialists would rather people die a few years down the road from implanted myocardia heart disease injected by mandated vac’s into all Americans today. The pushback has caused the government to turn to bureaucratic bureaus (OSHA) to mandate that all American citizens submit to unproven one-size-fits-all vaccinations and constantly wear face coverings that are useless…

America’s Wind Turbines Increase Energy Cost and Endanger Us All

Wind is even more intermittent than you could imagine, abruptly varying its energy output. Every turbine has a range of wind speeds, usually between 30 miles per hour (mph) and 55 mph, in which it will produce its maximum rated electric output. At lower speeds, the production falls off considerably. At wind speeds above the maximum rate for a turbine, the blades…

America has an Economic Virus

Whenever the government says, it wants to “help,” watch out! The problem is going to get worse. Why? Because government is meddling where it doesn’t belong. Because government is meddling where it has no expertise. Because government meddling imposes top-down “solutions” that are not based on free-market supply and demand. It always backfires…

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The pandemic is becoming permanent, even as it ends. Why? Because we did not pass the cabal’s election laws. Had we allowed the cabal to make fraud the norm in every state, then they would have been able to throw future elections even without a pandemic. We did not pass those laws so now the pandemic is permanent…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

At the moment, Socialists hold the reins of power in their hands, and in doing so, they have weaponized the DoJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, and Homeland Security significantly enough to change the Patriot Acts definition of who constitutes domestic terrorists. For the Democrat Party, control is essential, and seeing the light of an oncoming train, they are desperately attempting to rearrange…

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

This case is not about whether vaccines are effective, useful, or a good idea. It’s about whether this federal executive branch agency has the power to force millions of people working for or with a Medicare or Medicaid provider to undergo an invasive, irrevocable, forced medical treatment, a COVID shot. It’s a bureaucratic power move that is unprecedented…

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

The “Defeat the Mandates” march called for an end to vaccine mandates nationwide. Dr. Peter McCullough applauded the doctors and health care workers who stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and those throughout the nation that fought the good fight against medical tyranny. “We never had a full-throated endorsement from our government agencies, the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA, nor the White House task force,”…

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Since Biden has come to office, almost every nation that used to depend upon America for their security is realizing how wrong they have been and are now either arming themselves with more weapons or re-aligning with China and Russia, even if temporary. What is brewing in the Middle East – as I have been repeatedly warning – is a Nuclear confrontation because…
