Independence Day Forever

As America celebrates Independence Day, it is a good time to look back and look ahead at where we’ve been and where we are going. The pioneers who ventured away from their homelands to begin life in a new unknown world began an episode in history that is unparalleled. 
Our country had a rocky start. Our first settlers soon found themselves under the boot of British imperialism. They lacked any civil rights and were forced to house British troops in their homes. There was taxation without representation and they continuously suffered persecution. We went to war with Great Britain and won our independence. However, eighty-five years later we found our nation embroiled in a civil war over slavery and a host of other issues. The nation was divided between separatist Confederate States and the northern Union states. Americans went through a horrible civil war, with so much loss of life. We came out the other side a stronger America and eventually a more united America. Then we fought through two world wars and pulled together as never before to fight the Nazi’s and the Marxist ideals, not only to protect our own fledgling country, but to protect the rest of Europe from a life of Socialism and the loss of their freedoms.
America has been and remains that Shining City on a Hill that Ronald Reagan spoke about many years ago. We are the beacon of freedom and opportunity, a bastion of free speech, freedom of religion, and a country of laws. We are ruled by the people, and for the people as was set out by our forefathers in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
With those rights, come responsibilities. It is the responsibility of the legislative branch to enact laws that are for the good of the people. Sadly, we have too much enacting of laws without the consent of the people, and enacting laws that serve a very small minority rather than the majority. We have made the special interests more important than the majority of Americans in many cases. We have also abdicated the job that the legislatures exists for, with politicians mired in obstruction and infighting. We have those that are so enamored with power that they have forgotten about our Constitution and the good Americans they serve.
It is the responsibility of the Executive Branch to carry out the laws enacted by the legislative branch. This today seems to be misunderstood by many Americans, in the absence of Civics being taught in schools. This branch includes the President and about 5 million employees in various roles of carrying out and enforcing the laws.
The Judicial branch is responsible for interpreting the laws according to our United States Constitution. That does not include legislating from the bench as our current activist judges like to do. They have strayed from their judicial roles into roles of activism and are changing the norms and values of society by a perverted personal view that twists our constitution in ways that favor criminals and forwards a personal political view rather than a constitutional one.
There is an insidious cancer in our country, striving to remove our rule of law, and remove our God and to turn us toward a socialist/Marxist type of society. Those who buy into that thought have only to look to history to see that is a losing proposition. In today’s world of entitlements, free sounds good. In today’s world of fake news and dishonest spin, it is easy to fool a public too busy, or too uninformed into believing narratives that have a socialist agenda behind them. In today’s world where power hungry politicians are more interested in their own pockets and power, they have forgotten their mission in government.
In a country where some want to open the borders to anyone, with no understanding of the true consequences to all of America, it is easy to feel anger and frustration and fear. We are losing or ignoring our lessons from history
But I have faith. I have faith that we can bring God back to a more prominent role in American lives. I have faith, as I travel this country, that there are so many patriotic, good Americans in the heartlands of these United States, and they see what is going on, and they will not let it stand. We are truly a nation divided right down the middle on so many issues. Our values are shifting and not for the better. Life has a way of turning back around and I think that tide is rising. Donald Trump was the first wave, and there will be more. I believe in the America that I see from the highways and backroads of America every day, more than I believe in the America that television and the media show me. Look at the crowds of thousands at a President Trump rally. In the media, Maxine Waters gets even more play for a crowd of 40.
We will stand for our liberties, our rights, and our rule of law. We will stand behind our first responders and our police, border patrol, ICE agents, firefighters, our military and those that protect and serve and risk everything to uphold American laws and values. We will stand for our Constitution.
We have problems. We have internal enemies and external enemies. But make no mistake, America is the greatest country on earth, and the silent majority is alive and well. They are God fearing, patriotic, good people who bleed red, white and blue. Those who would choose to bring socialism to America will not succeed. Those who choose to have no borders and turn our country into a third world replica, will not succeed. Those who hate what America stands for will wither on the vine.
We are Americans. We are strong, we are compassionate, we are entrepreneurial, we are devoted to our families, our religions, our freedoms, our rule of law and our rights.  Celebrate Independence Day! Celebrate who we are and the greatness of our way of life in America, and do what you can to make it better. Happy Fourth of July America and god Bless America! And God Bless and keep safe our Military and all of our First Responders.

Deceptions of Government and Corporate Elite Threaten America

Deceptions of Government and Corporate Elite Threaten America

Today’s pervasive government and corporate corruption will result in more amorality among the public. When a country that is historically moral, tolerates leaders in the political and business worlds who are proven to be chronic liars, a previously honest general population begins to feel free to adopt deceptive practices as well, resulting in corruption becoming dominant in America…

As the Dismantling of America Continues… Judgment Is Coming, but for Whom?

The year is 2022, and you can be sure judgment is coming. The curse of deception is now judging all those who have spurned our God-given guidelines for holy living. The powers that be seem in their own eyes just and good, when in fact, they are wretched and oppressive. But a time of renewal may also be at hand because an ever-expanding army of righteous soldiers are returning to our roots…

Beyond the Fireworks & Bar-B-Ques… America’s Military Vets Take Note

No matter how much money and covert influence our enemies try to pump into America, there are millions of American veterans who once took an oath to protect and defend America that has no expiration date. You can push them so far, and eventually, you’ll reach the point where they push back. They’ve remained quietly on the sidelines, for now, observing and taking note of…

America Returns to the Days of King George

America Returns to the Days of King George

It seems the American people have not learned from their history. Rather we have reverted to a state of servitude similar to the colonies in 1776. I wonder if, when those 56 men pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor in support of the Declaration of Independence, they ever conceived that not only would the American people return to a life of dependence, but that we would do so willingly…

The Most Patriotic and Accomplished President in Modern Times

The Most Patriotic and Accomplished President in Modern Times

The only president who – despite the most maligning, deceitful, and aggressive media against him 24/7/365 x 5 years – delivered what he promised the American people if elected. The least unemployed Americans in over 50 years. Made America’s energy, oil, and gas independent of oil cartels for the first time ever. In fact, he made the USA a premier exporter, helping make the price of petrol…

How to Bring Washington DC Back Under Control

As more and more people are vetting their candidates for state offices based on how they fulfill their oath of office, our states will not only change, but can regain the fortitude to stand up to Washington, D.C.

FDA and CDC Approve Vaccines for Kids 6 Months and Q & A 28 on America Out Loud PULSE

America Out Loud PULSE with Dr. Peter McCullough and Malcolm Out Loud – The outrage regarding the FDA and CDC approving and promoting the vaccines to our youngest is being heard from coast to coast. As one listener questions… “I hope Dr. McCullough covers the terrible FDA approval (and maybe soon school mandate) of the vax for kids. It’s pure corruption and evil. This is where I draw the line.”

Florida’s Gov Ron DeSantis & Lawmakers Bring 145 New Laws Into Effect July 1

It’s been noted that throughout the governorship of Ron DeSantis during the health crisis of COVID-19, thousands of Americans have relocated from all across the nation to reside in Florida because of the conservative God and Country values that DeSantis stands for. The Florida governor signed 269 bills in the year 2022, 11 of those measures were vetoed and 145 are new laws taking effect…

Why Roe v. Wade Will NOT Impact the Election

Why Roe v. Wade Will NOT Impact the Election

The media is trying very hard to turn the upcoming midterm elections into a referendum on abortion…A large segment of the left is once again losing its mind and proving to independent voters what independent voters were already figuring out – that the political left is led by a radicalized group of thugs who want to burn down our nation and make us live under an ultra-authoritarian communist tyranny…
