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?

In her best-selling book, Rules for Deplorables: A Primer for Fighting Radical Socialism, Cathi counters father of community-organizing Saul Alinsky’s 70’s blockbuster book, Rules for Radicals. His thirteen tactics have been used for decades by the left to transform American values and culture to socialism. Time to play hardball. Rules for Deplorables is undoubtedly one of the most important books for the future of the world.

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.

Morocco and the Death of its Muslim Brotherhood

The peoples of Egypt, Tunisia, and now Morocco have declared publicly and unambiguously their contempt and refusal to have Sharia imposed upon them. They want a secular (even if military) rule than the clueless theocratic scum telling them how to live and die. If this spreads to more Muslim countries, the future will be rosier for most of them because every theocratic…

It is No Great Mystery, SARS-CoV-2 Origin is the Wuhan Lab – 3rd Yan Report

To mislead the world, CCP manipulated scientific campaigns (including scientists, doctors, top medical journals like Lancet or Nature) to push propaganda.

Biden set up America for disaster. I can’t even suppose how many years of coming terrorist attacks, internal conflicts, and a return to tribalism for self-defense we’ll face. Make no mistake, we’re in for it and if we continue to trust the Democrat (Marxists) Party to do what’s right, instead of destroying them completely, then we must readjust the parameters of our thinking and prepare for the worst…

Who Is Really At the Helm in the White House?

If we choose to ignore the evidence, or to merely grumble about his performance, then Biden and his cohorts will proceed unhindered with their agenda. We need to take a close look at his exploits and see what patterns are formed. Then, let’s take it a step further and ask who might be coaching Joe. Knowing the enemy is the first step toward defeating that enemy…

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

We the People, after creating this Frankenstein monster of a government and setting it loose on an unsuspecting world, now cower in fear of our creation, unwilling to stand and defend even our own selves against it. Why did the framers of this union create this Constitution the way they did? What was the purpose that We the People had in mind when we ordained and established it?
