In Offense Against the Progressive War On Patriotism

The very concept of patriotism has come under attack by modern Jacobins who denigrate and attempt to erase our nation’s marvelous legacy bequeathed us by brave, idealistic, wise, and, yes, racially and ethnically diverse, heroes seemingly overnight.

That great American legacy is founded on a bedrock principle enunciated in the second paragraph of our nation’s Declaration of Independence: ”We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Yes, it took a bloody Civil War and persistent Civil Rights movement for America to grow into the profound commitments of its founding Declaration and Constitution. And while an imperfect work in progress, our nation has continued to move to right the wrongs of fallible human beings, building upon real progress as a beacon of hope and generous arm of support for the rest of the world.

Today’s ironically misnamed “progressivism” isn’t an organic reformist movement to constructively build on lessons of the past, rather it seeks to advance failed neo-Marxist agendas through upending top-down bureaucratic control of our collective lives and choices.

We have witnessed our recently elected president characterize America as a systemically racist country; nihilistic mobs destroying and defacing statues of historical figures with impunity; and schools, institutions, and streets dedicated to such founding leaders as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Thomas Jefferson renamed because they were “offensive.”

Terrifyingly destructive changes are occurring at as astonishing speed: abandonment of national sovereignty with an open national border flooded with unvetted migrants; uncontested mayhem and murders in lawless cities; intentional cessation of energy independence and reliable supply; virulent racist and historically revisionist indoctrination of schoolchildren; and monitoring and suppression of free speech, including that of a duly elected sitting president.

The ideology of progressive wokeism is aberrant and abhorrent to American values that view people as individuals with souls, substituting a dogma that, like Marxism, divides society into oppressor and oppressed identity groups marked by genetic traits that are ordained by fiat to hate and fight one another.

Further, this liturgy of repressive exploitation renounces the very foundations of American egalitarianism and redemption, promoting a toxic message that our nation is forever cursed by racial evil that was deliberately embedded long ago by a white patriarchy and that this irrevocable ugliness at the heart of our society systematically thrives undiminished.

Such attacks on American culture and character are particularly vile where targeted on indoctrination into the hearts and minds of innocent children by public educational authorities we have trusted.

Appropriately outraged parents in Loudoun County, Va., for example, rose up against such travesties upon discovery that their school board was paying consultants to instruct teachers how to introduce critical race theory (CRT).

Among curricular topics addressed, were differences between “white individualism” and “color group collectivism.”

Virginia voters made this a determinate issue when the formerly deep blue state turned red in the recent election after Democratic gubernatorial candidate and former governor Terry McAuliffe lightly dismissed CRT, anti-patriotic and inappropriately age-and-sexually-explicit materials being taught in the Commonwealth’s K-12 public schools.

McAuliffe had stated during a campaign speech: “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”

The former Black American President Barack Obama — who was elected to our nation’s highest office twice — did neither McAuliffe nor his party any favors when he amplified the toxic issue by accusing winning opponent Glenn Youngkin of deflecting from “serious problems that affect serious people.”

Stone tone-deaf Obama said, “We don’t have time to be wasting on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage that right-wing media peddles to juice their ratings.”

This was after a tragically disgusting national spectacle involving efforts of Loudoun County School Board Superintendent Scott Ziegler to cover up two sexual assaults by a teenage student which occurred at separate schools in the same district on May 29 and Oct. 6.

During the first instance, the male student “wearing a skirt” who allegedly attacked a ninth-grade female in a girl’s bathroom was charged with two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio.

The victim’s very legitimately outraged father, Scott Smith, was forcibly confronted and arrested while subsequently voicing loud opposition to transgender bathroom policies at a fiery school board meeting.

Nevertheless, in a pointed letter addressed to the White House (with their participation in drafting it), Smith’s protest was referenced as the action of a “domestic terrorist” by the National School Boards Association (NSBA), triggering an order by U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland directing the DOJ and FBI to investigate such “threats.”

That same identity-based assault on America and its institutions has increasingly invaded publicly funded universities, government agencies, and even the U.S. military — the very kind of discriminatory thinking that concerned patriots have been fighting against and dying for throughout our nation’s noble experiment with liberated equal opportunities and justice for all.

American patriotism is embodied not in conceit, but rather is enshrined in recognition that God-awarded humankind is naturally social and fraternal and that successful nations are those which have learned how to transmute segregate group loyalties into broader unifying civil allegiances.

Such nations evolve organically through never-ending struggles over tenacious tyrants employing divide-and-control tactics who attempt to elevate group identity above citizenship, disparage common culture and the common man, and assert power through exploitive self-inflicted social instability.

Former President Ronald Reagan articulated the significance of American patriotism as a bright beacon of hope for liberty throughout the world.

In his 1989 farewell address to the nation, Reagan reflected upon a “shining city on a hill” phrase taken from John Winthrop, an early Pilgrim who journeyed here on a small wooden boat seeking a home that would be free.

That America Reagan described is “a tall proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God blessed and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace — a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity and if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here.”

President Reagan then added, “But more than that: after 200 years, two centuries, she still stands strong and true on the granite ridge and her glow has held steady no matter what storm.”

The wise orator then reminded us, should we ever tend to forget, “And she’s still a beacon, still a magnet for all who must have freedom, for all the Pilgrims from all the lost places who are hurtling through the darkness, toward home.”

Let that inspiring American beacon forever shine brightly to guide the hearts and minds of lost souls everywhere.

George Orwell, Meet Doctor Fucinstein

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

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

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

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 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

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

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…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden was earning an $80,000 monthly salary from the Ukrainian energy company and why he concocted a billion-dollar deal with a Chinese investment firm, 10% of all earnings of which were destined for the coffers of the family’s mob boss, Joe Biden himself. But why stop with the Biden’s? Speaker Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr. has been linked to at least five businesses under investigation for alleged fraud…

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports. Meanwhile, the European Union drug regulators warned frequent COVID boosters could adversely affect the immune system. While both of these developments are not declaring an end to mass vaccination, they are setting the framework to announce a…

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…
