The Winds Might Bend, But They’ll Never Break REAL AMERICANS

The date of December 1st, 2018 won’t easily be forgotten by the people of Central Illinois. A time of year when people are normally preparing for Christmas by putting up the Christmas tree and placing wrapped gifts beneath it. And stringing up the outside lights on the front of the house along with the other yard decorations.
Preparations were also being made in the town square of Taylorville – yes they still do exist – for the Christmas Parade scheduled to occur that evening. People would soon line up around the square to watch the high school band march by – the Taylorville Tornadoes ironically. Along with floats and other community groups participating in the annual holiday event for this community of around eleven thousand people in the heart of Illinois farming country.
But on this date the people of Taylorville were watching an ominous sky headed their direction. Brought on by unseasonably warm temperatures that had been experienced in recent days.
As civil authorities in Christian County watched the weather reports and were deciding on whether or not to cancel the evening’s festivities – which fortunately they decided to indeed cancel the parade –  most people went about their business while still keeping a wary eye on the dark sky to the south.
Sadly that ominous sky arrived over Taylorville having already wreaked havoc on other small Illinois communities before it reached the home of the ‘Tornadoes’. Bringing with it a major thunder storm which included at least one, possibly more funnel clouds which touched down within the small Illinois town.
The damage was severe, completely destroying many residences and other structures, and trapping a number of people inside the rubble that once was their home. Miraculously thus far there have been no fatalities blamed on the storm, though some serious injuries have resulted.
One touching story making the rounds is that of a family that sought refuge from the storm inside the bathtub of their house. As the storm tore away their home from around them and moved onto the next structure, leaving nothing behind but the bathtub with the family inside, one of the small children looked up and saw only sky where a roof and walls once stood. It’s reported that the child asked his father, “Are we in Heaven” ?
Certainly the extensive damage that was caused by the storm will be remembered by those who were affected personally, but I’m betting what will be remembered the most has been the response from the people of Illinois who came from miles around to help the victims and the community recover.
Almost immediately strangers began showing up carrying chain saws, driving pick-up trucks, some with trailers. Using shovels and strong backs to help out, whatever was necessary to help remove the debris and clear the fallen trees and tree limbs that came crashing down during the storm.
Some victims were handed a handful of cash by a perfect stranger to go buy a warm meal while the man they never knew before went to work clearing the mess left behind. Most never gave a name they just went about the business of helping someone out, and then moved onto to the next victim who needed help.
What will be remembered is how real Americans came together to help others during a time of need. No whining and wailing from the people who had lost everything, nor any angry demands that the government help them. Just a determined look on their faces, and the resilience common among those who make up America’s heartland.
Yes December 1st will long be remembered by the people of Central Illinois. But you won’t hear any “woe is me” comments emanating from those whose lives were torn away from them. The Christmas Parade will be rescheduled, the lights and holiday decorations will hang brightly from the lampposts, and the people of Taylorville will line the streets around the town square to enjoy an evening of revelry, and community.
As once again America shines brightly as it always does during difficult times. May God continue to bless the United States of America. Image: (Ted Schurter/The State Journal-Register via AP)

Fighting Disinformation – Truth is, Vitamin D is an Effective Alternative to Vaccines

Fighting Disinformation – Truth is, Vitamin D is an Effective Alternative to Vaccines

The disinformation articles never cite the research articles showing that high levels really work to fight COVID. So the general public stays stupid and continues unsafe and ineffective vaccines and boosters. Even today, nearly 500 Americans are dying unnecessarily daily. The whole pandemic could have been stopped early on if vitamin D was broadly distributed…

The Infiltration of Evil in America’s Institutions Jeopardize Religious Freedom

The Infiltration of Evil in America’s Institutions Jeopardize Religious Freedom

Whistleblower Report – The problems facing us all in the fight for religious liberty are complex and have infiltrated nearly every institution in America. Hope is not lost, however, and we have the Biblical assurance that the gates of hell shall not prevail. People from all segments of society and all around the military are standing up and fighting for religious freedom…

The Least Dangerous Branch of Government

The Least Dangerous Branch of Government

Associate Justice Kagan made a statement that many probably took in stride, but for me, was jaw-dropping. Justice Kagan is concerned that the court may lose its connection with the public and public sentiment, but the court is not elected by the public, and for a very good reason. The court’s job is not to court public opinion, but to decide controversies and criminal prosecutions based on the law…

Taking Back Control of Your Life: Week 3 The Importance of Being Organically Grown

Taking Back Control of Your Life: Week 3 The Importance of Being Organically Grown

The Voice of a Nation with Dr. Henry Ealy and Malcolm Out Loud – Pesticides work by shutting down the bug’s nervous system, so the bug suffocates and has a heart attack. So when we eat non-organic produce…we are literally eating poison that kills us…just a lot slower so ‘they’ can say the pesticides are ‘safe and effective’…sound familiar?

Surviving Families Strike Back for Loved Ones Lost in Hospital Without Shared Decision Making

Surviving Families Strike Back for Loved Ones Lost in Hospital Without Shared Decision Making

After more than 2 ½ years of daily COVID deaths in America’s hospitals, we finally have the first two attorneys in the US to take legal action boldly and courageously against three hospitals in Fresno, California, for wrongful death, medical battery, elder abuse, and other violations of patients’ rights to hold these hospital administrators, doctors, and nurse accountable for such horrific patient abuses.”

Bill Gates Mosquito Factory Should Be Targeted for Destruction

Bill Gates Mosquito Factory Should Be Targeted for Destruction

Our greatest concern should be that the Colombia mosquito project has grave potential for disaster on multiple fronts. The money-making potential in modified mosquitoes is grand. And money attracts Gates like iron to a magnet. Bill Gates has no interest in preserving humanity. Everyone should know that. Therefore we also know he has ulterior motives for this risky mosquito project…

US Army Manipulates COVID-19 PCR Testing of Troops

US Army Manipulates COVID-19 PCR Testing of Troops

Whistleblower Report – It is critical to understand how significant it is that the PCR has been used incorrectly to create a false narrative causing more fear and more draconian measures to infringe on our freedom. The ENTIRE pandemic was based upon a positive case rate from these PCR tests. The death count was also based on a positive test and a person who died…

Remember When FBI Cared More About Bad Guys than Conservatives?

Remember When FBI Cared More About Bad Guys than Conservatives?

In a single week, less than two months before midterm elections, the FBI issued 40 subpoenas against former low and high-level Trump associates, including his election campaign strategist Boris Epshteyn, former New York Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, and former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. You can be quite certain they’re not looking for Biden supporters…

Medical Martial Law Coming to Your State? Here’s What You Need to Know

Medical Martial Law Coming to Your State? Here’s What You Need to Know

Whistleblower Report – The language is designed to sound innocuous. In reality, however, this legislation creates quarantine detention with no escape and no due process. The sinister intent is to usurp citizens’ rights and implement total control of who gets detained for “quarantine,” where they are kept and under what conditions, and for how long…

Why The Left Will Not Win

Why The Left Will Not Win

What this Supreme Court ruling effectively did was end the ability of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats throughout the federal government, whether it’s EPA, FDA, CDC, or any agency, to make rules and regulations which control our lives but are not described in the new legislation. This is really the deep state we have heard so much about. It has never been a deep conspiracy against the public; it has been running our lives directly in front of us…

Prophet of Doom

Prophet of Doom

By the time this administration is gone, the USA would have lost many of its allies in Asia, Africa, Latin America, and especially the Middle East. Most of these allies are gravitating towards China and Russia or are attempting to become self-sufficient militarily through alignments with like-minded neighboring states. Several are also intending to go Nuclear…

The Lords and Ladies of Martha’s Vineyard is Case in Point

The Lords and Ladies of Martha’s Vineyard is Case in Point

Now the politically connected get the spoils, and ‘we the people’ are increasingly left out in the cold. As the wealthy eliminate cheap and reliable energy sources, being ‘left out in the cold’ will become more and more literal. Having achieved the zenith of wealth accumulation, the already rich now want the last piece of the puzzle: absolute control. Access to energy and to food will be used to keep the masses in line.

Political Elites Reveal Their True Colors on Illegal Immigration

Political Elites Reveal Their True Colors on Illegal Immigration

The Left is apoplectic over what the governors of Florida, Arizona, and Texas are doing to their carefully thought out plan of spreading the refugee hoards all around the country, except to their enclaves. Initially, a few busloads sent to Washington DC and New York City was a minor cause for concern but no panic until those illegals started showing up at the VP’s House in DC and Martha’s vineyard…

Can the Greatest Generation’s Children Save America?

Can the Greatest Generation’s Children Save America?

If we want to insure that our own children are able to enjoy the freedoms we and previous generations fought to protect, then we are going to have to step up once again. No resting for us during our twilight years. The stakes are much too high, and the enemy much too close. We, the children of the Greatest Generation, will have to once again…
