CHILDREN OF THE GREATEST GENERATION.

IS YOUR BIRTHDAY SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 1922 AND 1942?  WELL, IF YES, YOU AND I WERE WITNESS TO THE GREATEST TIMES IN THE HISTORY OF MAN.  SO, READ THIS SLOWLY AND REALIZE JUST HOW PRIVILEGED WE’VE BEEN.


Born in the 1930s and early 40s, we exist as a very special age cohort. We are the Silent Generation.

We are the smallest number of children born since the early 1900s.  We are the “last ones.”

We are the last generation, climbing out of the depression, who can remember the winds of war and the impact of a world at war which rattled the structure of our daily lives for years.

We are the last to remember ration books for everything from gas to sugar to shoes to stoves.

We saved tin foil and poured fat into tin cans.

We saw cars up on blocks because tires weren’t available.

We can remember milk being delivered to our house early in the morning and placed in the milk box on the porch.

We are the last to see the gold stars in the front windows of our grieving neighbors whose sons died in the War.

We saw the ‘boys’ home from the war, build their little houses.

We are the last generation who spent childhood without television; instead, we imagined what we heard on the radio. As we all like to brag, with no TV, we spent our childhood “playing outside” .

We did play outside, and we did play on our own. There was no little league. There was no city playground for kids. The lack of television in our early years meant, for most of us, that we had little real understanding of what the world was like. On Saturday afternoons, the movies, gave us newsreels of the war, sandwiched in between westerns and cartoons.

Telephones were one to a house, often shared (party lines) and hung on the wall.

Computers were called calculators, they only added and were hand cranked; typewriters were driven by pounding fingers, throwing the carriage, and changing the ribbon. The internet and GOOGLE were words that did not exist.
Newspapers and magazines were written for adults and the news was broadcast on our table radio in the evening by Gabriel Heatter.

We are the last group who had to find out for ourselves. As we grew up, the country was exploding with growth. The G.I. Bill gave returning veterans the means to get an
education, and spurred colleges to grow.
VA loans fanned a housing boom.

Pent up demand, coupled with new installment
payment plans, put factories to work. New highways would bring jobs and mobility.
The veterans joined civic clubs and became active in politics.

The radio network expanded from 3 stations to thousands of stations Our parents were suddenly free from the confines of the depression and the war, and they threw themselves into exploring opportunities they had never imagined.

We weren’t neglected, but we weren’t today’s all-consuming family focus. They were glad we played by ourselves until the street lights came on. They were busy discovering the post war world.

We entered a world of overflowing plenty and opportunity; a world where we were welcomed.

We enjoyed a luxury; we felt secure in our future. Depression poverty was deep-rooted.
Polio was still a crippler.

The Korean War was a dark presage in the early 50s and by mid-decade, school children were ducking under desks for Air-Raid training.
Russia built the Iron Curtain and China became Red China.

Eisenhower sent the first ‘advisors’ to Vietnam.
Castro set up camp in Cuba, and Khrushchev came to power.

We are the last generation to experience an interlude when there were no threats to our homeland.

We came of age in the 40s and 50s.  The war was over and the cold war, terrorism, global warming, and perpetual economic insecurity had yet to haunt life with unease.

Only our generation can remember both a time of great war, and a time when our world was secure and full of bright promise and plenty. We have lived through both.

We grew up at the best possible time, a time when the world was getting better, not worse.
We are the Silent Generation “The Last Ones”
More than 99% of us are either retired or deceased, and we feel privileged to have “lived in the best of times”! ANON

If anyone knows who wrote this I would like to give credit to the author. At 88 I was in the middle of this Greatest Generation. As Democratic politicians are trying erase history I hope they are unsuccessful. History is an adhesive that keeps us trying to save our Republic form of government that made us the envy of the rest of the world.

IF YOU NEVER MET AN ANGEL, MEET MINE – Part Two

II am now home but still taking therapy two days a week. My new left knee is doing great and I have now played three rounds of Par 3, 18 holes. Having a left leg that does not bend when you swing is making golf fun again. Caring for my Angel makes my play dependent on someone to care for her.

Hospice has taken over her necessary healthcare issues and this will permit me to keep her at our home as long as I can care for her other vital needs. I will try to explain with actual events. One of the major problems I was having when I ask Hospice for help was bathing. Strange as it may seem the Hospice Nurse told me this was a major problem with elderly people, especially females. I was concerned that it might have been fear of remembering that a hot shower might scald her. Regardless scalding water can be dangerous. Hospice comes every Monday, Wednesday and Friday to help her with her showers.

There is no doubt that anyone with memory factors can be seriously injured if what might happen, happens. Misuse of sharp knives can be injurious to someone who might not know what a butcher knife is for. I can only imagine how much damage and pain could happen if you put a can of anything in the microwave and it exploded? Some things like the thermostats and the stoves I have asked her to avoid successfully. On other things I have made signs to place asking or warning her to avoid and so far it works.

After I asked her to take the dog out after dark one night she got lost in a neighborhood we have lived in for 27 years. It took me 30 minutes to find them, scared beyond belief. Simple things you would never expect anyone to forget, they forget. She has me select what she needs to wear the next day. I have cooked every meal we have had for the last 25 years so I am well aware what she likes to eat. She never ate snacks between meals but she forgot and she has gained 15 pounds in the last year.      

Often my Angel forgets that she has slept in pajamas all of her life. She probably has 20 pair of pajamas in her closet. She usually goes to bed about 8 or 8:30 and I tell her every night to put on her pajamas. At least 4 nights a week she will be sound asleep in her clothes and even her bra. Unless I go make her change she appears comfortable sleeping in her clothing.

I have a twofold reason for creating this record. One for others to use should they ever need to as safety aware as necessary. Two, hopefully share with me things I need to be aware of from now on. Hospice has fulfilled my lack of knowledge with a single number I can call 24/7 and get immediate instructions on what to do next.

In addition A Hospice Nurse comes every Monday to take her vital signs and ask pertinent questions and make suggestions based on the stage of the Dementia. I was somewhat surprised that Hospice is available based on medical examinations but should you know or not that severe memory loss is incurable 100% of the time.

Please share your experiences with me and I will continue to keep this dialog open as long as I don’t croak. C Brewer March 2

IF YOU NEVER MET AN ANGEL, MEET MINE.

Part one of a series.

I am in the Sabine County Hospital/Texas for physical therapy on my left and second total knee replacement in the last eight months. To all of my friends who responded to my last message, thank you dearly. After you read this I hope you agree, God, loaned me an Angel.

Norma Dean Maxey arrived on this earth August 30, 1938 in Frisco Texas. Our paths crossed when she was about 13 as I rode to work and worked with her father, who was my also my supervisor. Fate or God had us living only 2 blocks apart. With a normal Texas life she lived with her parents and her dad was transferred to Garland TX. One event was when she graduated from Grand Prairie High School my first wife and I treated Norma and her best friend Paula Martin to a concert featuring Fats Domino and Little Richard in Dallas.

Later and after I was divorced by my first wife I had not seen Norma for some 3 years. Her Dad and I were in a meeting together and he invited me over one evening for dinner. Some six months later we were married. Next June 23rd will be our 59th anniversary.

We have four wonderful children and I fathered 3 others who are all retired. Currently and counting spouses, I have 49 dependents. If I live long enough I will write a story about this group, that would make anyone proud.

My Angel’s phrases that are still in service. First one is “Can I help”, slightly adjusted to “What can I do to help. I try so many ways to let her help but she can’t usually remember she has asked me when she utters the last word.

Our first 13 years found me working long hoursand often going 14 days and never see the kids awake.  She never complained and took care of business. We lived our first 12 years with only one car. At one time we had three baby beds, and three in diapers at one time. There were no disposable diapers and they had to be washed  several times each day.

She now sleeps at least 12 hours a night and catnaps in her Lazy Boy throughout the day. About 20 months ago with the help of our baby daughter we found her a miniature Poodle at the local rescue agency in Hemphill. Brina

Is the focus of her life. Making her responsible for the dogs care gets her out of the chair several times a day.

Those who remember her beautiful gardens, her love for birds and her tidy home would not believe life here today. The initial event that caught my eye was her insistence that  our checkbook was balanced at all times. She just suddenly ignored this task. When I asked her why, she just said it was my time to let her retire.

We moved to Sabine County Texas after our baby daughter married hopefully for our last phase of life. We have a lake home I designed on the shores of Toledo Bend Lake. This has been home for the last 26 years. Life here is wonderful, no need for clean air regulations. Lowest taxes in Texas and 21 miles to the closest Walmart in Louisiana  

Norma now need care, love and help for the rest of her life. I am making sure she is pampered which is now my job.  Watching my Angel disappear is the most painful event of my 88 years. Losing the love of my life at my advanced age leaves little to look forward to.

I intend to write a series of articles that might help others with this terrible malady. I am learning my new responsibilities and please help me explain this terrible medical condition to others. Share your stories with me and I will share them with others.

QUALITY- A PROFESSION ELIMINATING ITSELF?

QUALITY from Birth to Death?

This old 88 year old began his career in Quality Control in 1952. Quality Control was a new name for “Inspection” when they blended Inspection with Statistics and a new Department was born. The Inspection function, was made an independent activity during WWII, that separated inspection from manufacturing. The reason was more of a safety issue to help protect the military from human errors in a critical World War.

I helped input and still have a copy of the first Quality Control Manual created for Temco Aircraft Corporation. I was involved with the incorporation of statics and the inspection function. Quality Control gained stature with a Director who reported directly to the President. This type of Quality Control Department is still not active in the small US business world unless it is mandated by the customer. One exception might be if the company had been fined or caused human fatalities that resulted in excessive legal costs. Most just decided on closure and/or bankruptcy.

In the late 1950’s along came NASA and another gain for the Quality professional, I had advanced to the then title of General Foreman of Inspection. The company name had been changed to Ling Temco with no advancement in management reporting or title. In i960 we acquired Chance Vought Aircraft and the company was known as Ling-Temco-Vought or LTV. In the middle 1960’s the company decided to build a separate plant for missiles and space programs and I spent the next 16 years as Manager of administration or all testing functions. At age 47 I completed a Master of Science degree and a proud 3.92 GPA. NASA over the years had been able to remove the name “Control” as we actually controlled nothing but ourselves. NASA also combined Quality, Safety and Reliability into one department. A giant step for the quality function.

My last two years with LTV I served as dead end Manager of Quality Planning with no chance of advancement after two suffering years completing my Masters Degree.

In 1978 I was offered a position with Otis Engineering, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Halliburton Corporation. This was a significant stature and responsibility promotion for me. My title was Director of Quality for a company with sales of eight billion annually and I reported to the President and had to have my departmental operating plan presented and approved by the Halliburton Board of Directors annually. My need was the first Quality Program Requirement instituted by the Department of the Interior for design, fabrication and testing for Surface and Sub-Surface Safety Valves and named SPPE-1/-2 used in US offshore oil and gas wells. This program introduced a totally new form of Quality for the oil and gas industry. This program was a derivative of NQA-1/-2 created for the Nuclear industry earlier, This was like taking a still inspection industry far beyond itself into the NASA/Nuclear world in one giant leap. This leap was a common giant step for all suppliers. During my time with Otis my department required over 425 employees worldwide

This was a new leap for me as instead of dealing with Air Force, Navy, Army or Nasa the agency that managed the Nuclear and SPPE programs was the American Society for Mechanical Engineers or ASME. This was only the second program that was ever required deal with third party agencies instead of Government agencies. This form of Quality functioned through a committee structure that was responsible for its operation. Operating as ASME Committees the structure was a Representative for what as named the Main Committee and there were committees for Surface Safety Valves, Sub-service Safety Valves, A Quality Committee and a Committee for Testing. Each Committee had a member from the ASME, a member from the Department of the Interior, am member from the manufacturer of each device, a member from the testing organization and a member from the public, Each committee elected a Chairman and a Secretary and meetings were scheduled quarterly. These meetings rotated and usually lasted 4 days. In addition the Chairman of  the Main Committee, the ASME Director of Accreditation, the Department of the Interior representative met semi-annually in Reston Virginia and at ASME headquarters in New York City.

These two programs were the beginning of the current ISO third party, accreditation and registration programs that began later as ISO 9000-1/-2 Requirements that began in the late 1980’s. For credibility reasons I was chairman of both the Main and Quality Committees for over 5 years. Two as the Manufacturer representative and three as the Public representative as I left the Halliburton Cooperation after 5 years to further my career in Quality Training and Consulting that lasted eleven more years before I retired in 1994.

My remaining eleven years of Quality work was both public and in-house training on three continents with a partner for the first several years, Richard, Dick, Kleckner, We trained some 40,000 individuals in both Quality System Auditing and familarism with the ISO 9000 Standards This took us to four Countries and likely 25 states and we also had a special Auditor program for the airline industry that trained people from every airline in the free world. We both had separate Consulting businesses and we did several programs together for some of the larger industries/airlines including an in-depth audit of Eastern Airlines shortly before it went bankrupt.

Another join venture was the forming of a company in 1990 to be accredited to issue ISO 9001/-2 registrations. Quality Systems Registrar, QSR, became the first American owned company to be Accredited to issue ISO Certificates. QSR is still in business with over 400 customers. Being smaller than the giants of Registration we have always limited our size to make sure we can develop bonding relationships and some of our customers have been with us since our Accreditation. I still serve as a member of our Board of Governors that assure credibility to QSR’s operation. There may still be other Quality professionals still functioning that are my age but all of the giants of Quality like Dr Juran, Dr. Demming, Phil Crosby for a few were acquaintances or friends have long ago departed. The only other friend still working is Hank Farlander, another Dallas friend I first met when I was Chairman of the Dallas Chapter of what was still the ASQC in the early 1980’s,

My reason for taking the time to create this article is I am now watching the Quality leadership of today slowly destroy all of the barriers I helped remove to gain stature for the Quality Profession and the Quality Professional. I tried hard to not create a book but without explaining the wars I helped fight for stature many Quality professionals have no idea how hard it was to gain stature for a function that adds no value to the large companies except improved operations and reduced waste. In my career I worked in twenty three countries, visited in nine more and worked forty nine States. In my last eleven years I flew over 3,000,000 miles and spent over 2200 nights traveling. I started or help start nine different businesses in 4 countries.

I wrote this a few weeks ago and sure enough the following events are unfolding. Greed finally tripped up the leaders as predicted.

Watching today’s accreditation organizations like the ANAB, an AQC subsidiary, join with the foreign accreditation bodies keep trying to expand responsibilities for Quality into risk management, and other fields that will fail eventually when the costs of Accreditation and Registration exceed the increasing beyond any possible savings will kill the Goose that Laid the Golden Egg. When the last cycle of increased costs were introduced a couple of years ago I tried to warn the ANAB they were swimming in uncharted waters and I was ignored. If the AQC does not make certain the top leadership is aware of the shark filled waters Quality as a profession will get the first self inflicted black eye in my 65 plus years. I doubt that the AQC will have the honesty to print this article and at least generate discussion to prove me a wingnut or get some sanity involved before the bloodbath begins. I have nothing to lose or gain as my days are numbered. I just can’t believe the wild intrusions into other areas like design are an act of wisdom.

THE CHRISTMAS PAGEANT


My husband and I had been happily married (most of the time) for five years but hadn’t been blessed with a baby..

I decided to do some serious praying and promised God that if he would give us a child, I would be a perfect mother, love it with all my heart and raise it with His word as my guide.

God answered my prayers and blessed us with a son.

The next year God blessed us with another son.

The following year, He blessed us with yet another son.

The year after that we were blessed with a daughter.

My husband thought we’d been blessed right into poverty. We now had four children, and the oldest was only four years old.

I learned never to ask God for anything unless I meant it As a minister once told me, “If you pray for rain, make sure you carry an umbrella.”

I began reading a few verses of the Bible to the children each day as they lay in their cribs..

I was off to a good start. God had entrusted me with four children and I didn’t want to disappoint Him.

I tried to be patient the day the children smashed two dozen eggs on the kitchen floor searching for baby chicks.

I tried to be understanding when they started a hotel for homeless frogs in the spare bedroom, although it took me nearly two hours to catch all twenty-three frogs.

When my daughter poured ketchup all over herself and rolled up in a blanket to see how it felt to be a hot dog, I tried to see the humor rather than the mess..

In spite of changing over twenty-five thousand diapers, never eating a hot meal and never sleeping for more than thirty minutes at a time, I still thank God daily for my children.

While I couldn’t keep my promise to be a perfect mother I didn’t even come close. I did keep my promise to raise them in the Word of God.

I knew I was missing the mark just a little when I told my daughter we were going to church to worship God, and she wanted to bring a bar of soap along to “wash up” Jesus, too.

Something was lost in the translation when I explained that God gave us everlasting life, and my son thought it was generous of God to give us his “last wife.”

My proudest moment came during the children’s Christmas pageant.

My daughter was playing Mary, two of my sons were shepherds and my youngest son was a wise man. This was their moment to shine.

My five-year-old shepherd had practiced his line, “We found the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes.”

But he was nervous and said, “The baby was wrapped in wrinkled clothes.”

My four-year-old “Mary” said, “That’s not ‘wrinkled clothes,’ silly. That’s dirty, rotten clothes.”

A wrestling match broke out between Mary and the shepherd and was stopped by an angel, who bent her halo and lost her left wing.

I slouched a little lower in my seat when Mary dropped the doll representing Baby Jesus, and it bounced down the aisle crying, “Mama-mama.”

Mary grabbed the doll, wrapped it back up and held it tightly as the wise men arrived.

My other son stepped forward wearing a bathrobe and a paper crown, knelt at the manger and announced, “We are the three wise men, and we are bringing gifts of gold, common sense and fur.”

The congregation dissolved into laughter, and the pageant got a standing ovation.

“I’ve never enjoyed a Christmas program as much as this one,” laughed the pastor, wiping tears from his eyes

“For the rest of my life, I’ll never hear the Christmas story without thinking of gold, common sense and fur.”

“My children are my pride and my joy and my greatest blessing,” I said as I dug through my purse for an aspirin.

Jesus had no servants, yet they called Him Master.

Had no degree, yet they called Him Teacher .

Had no medicines, yet they called Him Healer.

Had no army, yet kings feared Him..

He won no military battles, yet He conquered the world.

He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him.

He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today.

Feel honored to serve such a Leader who loves us.

If you believe in God and in Jesus Christ His Son, send this to all on your buddy list. GOD BLESS YOU ALL ANON

Thanks Patsy Sommers for sharing this during this Christmas Season. Although a smile or laugh is rarer today this was quite refreshing. Some 53 years ago Norma gave birth to our baby Leah Stone and that gave us four children in five years. Although Norma now suffers with dementia she can still remember many of our like events as we had many that this story brought back from those wonderful younger years.

We are now in the twilight of our lives and with the help of our daughter Lisa Felske, we have many similar events captured for the enjoyment of family hopefully for many years to come.

WHO REALLY CARES???

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Let’s follow the trail…..

Here’s what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important……

DO YOU REALLLLLLLY UNDERSTAND “THE SWAMP”?????

Unfortunately, very few people will take the time to “read” and “understand” the meaning of ALL THESE DOTS CONNECTED…however, if you are interested, THIS is Unbelievable when these pieces are sewn together

💥From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

💥 Grand Jury had been empanelled.

💥 Governments from around the world had donated to the “Charity”.

🤑🤑🤑 Yet, from 2001 to 2003 NONE of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared.

Hmmmmm, now you would think that an HONEST INVESTIGATOR would be able to figure this out. YA THINK????

😱😱😱 Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?

BET YOU CAN’T GUESS

💥💥💥 None other than JAMES COMEY 😂😂😂

????? Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it ????

GUESS WHO was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS ????

💥💥💥 Your friend and mine, LOIS “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) LERNER.

NOW, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of strange coincidences, right?

GUESS WHO ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from 2001 to 2005?

💥💥💥 NONE other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, ROD ROSENSTEIN.

Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?

😱😱😱 GUESS WHO was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during this time frame?

I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in statistics and chances.

💥💥💥 NONE other than ROBERT MUELLER.

What do ALL FOUR CASTING CHARACTERS have in common?

They all were briefed and/or were FRONT LINE INVESTIGATORS into the Clinton Foundation Investigation.

Now that’s just a coincidence, right? 🤑🤑🤑

Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.

💥Let’s fast forward to 2009……

James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed Martin.

HILLARY CLINTON is running the State Department, on her own personal email server by the way.

The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of the HILLARY.

Like all good public servants do, you know looking out for America’s best interest, she decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US Uranium to none other than, the Russians.😡😡😡

Now you would think that this is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t, the People of America got absolutely nothing out of it.

😱😱😱 However, prior to the sale approval, none other than BILL CLINTON goes to MOSCOW and gets paid $500,000.00 for a one hour speech then meets with RUSSIN Vladimir Putin at his home for a few hours.

OK, NO BIG DEAL…RIGHT???

💥💥💥 Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole inside one of the companies in the UraniumOne deal who was informing them on vast money laundering and bribery taking place to get the UraniumOne deal approved.

GUESS WHO was the FBI Director during this time frame?

💥💥💥 Yep, ROBERT MUELLER 😡😡😡

He even DELIVERED a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.

GUESS WHO was handling that case within the Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland?

None other than, ROD ROSENSTEIN.

GUESS what happened to the informant?

😭😭😭The Department of Justice placed a GAG order on him and threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.😭😭😭

How does 20% of the most strategic asset of the United States of America (Uranium) end up in Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole, providing inside information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?????

Guess what happened soon after the sale was approved?

$$$$$$$$ 145,000,000 (MILLION) in “donations” made their way into the CLINTON FOUNDATION from entities directly connected to the Uranium One deal.🤑🤑🤑🤑🤑

Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue Service working the Charitable Division?

💥💥💥 None other than, LOIS LERNER.

Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here RIGHT?

NOW LET US FAST FORWARD TO 2015

Due to a series of tragic events in Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that the Hillary ran the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email server.

He also discovered that none of those emails had been turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of State which was required by law.

He also discovered that there was Top Secret information contained within her personally archived email.

Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed forth from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave it with this…… they did everything humanly possible to cover for Hillary.

💥💥💥 Now, this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director in 2013?

GUESS WHO secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million dollar thank you present when he departed his employer?

🤑🤑🤑 None other than JAMES COMEY 🤑🤑🤑

Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?

Now he is the FBI Director in charge of the “Clinton Email Investigation”
after, of course, his FBI Investigates the
Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service and exonerates her.

Nope…. couldn’t find any crimes there.

Can you guess what happened next?

In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of
Hillary Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like candy.

They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury.

Like a lightning bolt of statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the true “Gangsta” Homey he is,
James steps out into the cameras of an awaiting press conference on July the 8th
of 2016, and exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.

Can you see the pattern?

It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. Attorney General,
Comey gets fired based upon a letter by
Rosenstein,
Comey leaks government information to the press,
Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by
Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI and DOJ and the story continues.

FISA Abuse, political espionage….. pick a crime, any crime, chances are…… this group and a few others did it.

All the same players.

All compromised and conflicted.

All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.

All connected in one way or another to the Clintons.

They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they touch.

How many lives have these two destroyed?

As of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service.

Let us not forget that Comey’s BROTHER works for DLA Piper, the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

And, See the person that is the common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yep, that would be
HILLARY R. CLINTON.

😳😳😳 WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN? 😳😳😳

Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.

Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller.

💥 Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton in 1998.

Lawrence also represented:

Robert Mueller three times;

James Comey five times;

Barack Obama 45 times;

Kathleen Sebelius 56 times;

Bill Clinton 40 times; and

Hillary Clinton 17 times.

Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.

You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? Who cares about the work history of this Barsoomian woman?

😡😡😡 Apparently someone does, because someone out there cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court dockets (?).

Someone out there cares so much that the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian. 😳

Historically, this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative.

Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community. And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov.

The NIH stands for National Institutes of Health.

This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an operative by using another government organization to shield their activities.

It’s a cover, so big deal right? I mean what does one more attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?

It deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California, the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana legalization mix …. and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending investigation into collusion between the Trump team and the Russians.

💥💥💥💥💥 Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?

BECAUSE….

She is ONLY Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸GET THIS INFORMATION OUT TO EVERYONE YOU CAN.

Jaw dropping, shocking and extremely sad that this info has never been exposed-

🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 DO YOUR PART IN PLASTERING THIS INFORMATION EVERYWHERE …. it’s bullet proof and cannot be blown off by leftists … and will convince many not paying attention that we have a soft coup happening now..

“THE MOST EVIL HUMAN ON EARTH”

My old friend Jack Peck sent me this dynamite gathering of facts about George Soros that will curl or straighten your hair when you read these facts. I have not been so utterly captivated since I wrote the articles about Tavistock. Another old friend, Phil Sizer, motivated me to do the Tavistock investigation which is filled with intrigue like what you are about to read. How one man who is less than three weeks older than myself can amass so much power is fascinating and scary. Grab yourself a cool one, prepare yourself for a trip covering the last 86 years and wrecked countries worldwide. When you finish the next some 2500 words you will wonder how Hillary lost. It will take more than Trump to fend off this demon if “Fat Lady” does not sing at his demise. The world will never miss a despot like Soros. This will drive me to dig to. C Brewer

Steve Kroft (born August 22, 1945) is an American journalist and a longtime correspondent for “60 Minutes”.  His investigative reporting has garnered him much acclaim, including three Peabody Awards and nine Emmy awards, one of which was an Emmy for Lifetime Achievement.

FROM STEVE KROFT (“60 Minutes”)

Glen Beck has been developing material to show all the ties that Soros has through the nation and world along with his goals. This article is written by Steve Kroft from “60 Minutes”. It begins to piece together the rise of Obama and his behavior in leading the nation along with many members of Congress (the Democrats, such as the election of Pelosi as the minority leader in Congress).

If you have wondered where Obama came from and just how he quickly moved from obscurity to President, or why the media is “selective” in what we are told, here is the man who most probably put him there and is responsible. He controls President Obama’s every move.  Think this is absurd?  Invest a few minutes and read this.  You won’t regret it.

Who is Obama?  Obama is a puppet and here is the explanation of the man or demon that pulls his strings.  It’s not by chance that Obama can manipulate the world.  After reading this and Obama’s reluctance to accept help on the oil spill you wonder if the spill is part of the plan to destroy the US?  “In history, nothing happens by accident.  If it happened, you can bet someone planned it.” ~  Franklin   Delano Roosevelt

Who Is George Soros?  He brought the market down in 2 days.  Here is what CBS’ Mr. Steve Kroft’s research has turned up.  It’s a bit of a read, and it took 4 months to put it together.  “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States of America.”  ~ George Soros”

George Soros is an evil man.  He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.”  He killed and robbed his own Jewish people.  What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience.  He considers himself to be an elitist world class philosopher, despises the American way, and just loves to do social engineering and change cultures.

Garry Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930, in Hungary.  Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto language invented in 1887and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity.  The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, to facilitate assimilation into the Gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.

When Hitler’s henchman, Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary, to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population.  Soros went with him on his rounds.

Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.”  70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary, nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect”.  During an interview with “Sixty Minute’s” Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year.”

KROFT:  My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

SOROS:  Yes.  Yes.

KROFT:  Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your Jews, friends and neighbors.

SOROS:  Yes.  That’s right. Yes. 

KROFT:  I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many, years.  Was it difficult?

SOROS:  No, not at all.  Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.

KROFT:  No feelings of guilt?

SOROS:  No, only feelings of absolute power.

In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having carried some rather “potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.”  Be that as it may.  After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors.  Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s death in 1994.  Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned “the open society,” and Fallibilism.

Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken.  (Then again, I could be wrong about that.)  The “open society” basically refers to a “test and evaluate” approach to social engineering.  Regarding “open society” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.”

In 1956 Soros moved to New York City, where he worked on Wall Street and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation. Soros is ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune.  By the 1980s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.

In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for “The American Thinker” she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England.  He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight.”

In 1994 Soros crowed in “The New Republic,” that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.”  The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.  “The “Soros Empire” indeed.

In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia.  At the time, Malaysia ‘s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohammad, called Soros “a villain, and a moron.”  Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula.  He sucks the blood from the people.”

The website Greek National Pride reports, “Soros was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia, Ukraine and Myanmar [ Burma].  Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain.  He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”

France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 2.9 million dollars.  Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum writes that the Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized.  Soros deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary ‘s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.

My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach. But what about America?  Soros told Australia ‘s national newspaper “The Australian.”  ” America, as the center of the globalized financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world.  This is now over.  “The game is out,” he said, adding that the time has come for “a very serious adjustment” in American’s consumption habits. He implied that he was the one with the power to bring this about.”

Soros:  “World financial crisis was “stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”

Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil, to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields.  Obama’s largesse towards Brazil came shortly after his political financial backer, George Soros, invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras).

Tait Trussel writes, “The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil, but it is a bad deal for the U.S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U S could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independence.”

A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch.com<http://soroswat ch.com/>.  Their mission:  “This blog is dedicated to all who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of George Soros.  Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same:  the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world’s poor, that justice will be served.”

Back to America. Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now.  People have been warning us. Two years ago, news          sources reported that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous.  In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people”. His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license.  His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of a PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements.

Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book, “The Shadow Party”, outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel. Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicalsand ousting moderate Democrats for years.  The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which recently became the Obama Administration.

Discover the Networks.org<http://networks.o rg/> (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros’] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia, Croatia, Georgia, and Yugoslavia. When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government, a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup.”

November 2008 edition of the German magazine, “Der Spiegel,” in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U. S.) should do after taking office.  “I think we need a large stimulus package.” Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right. Soros also said that “I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U.S.  needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”

Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.

Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. Per an article by “The Baltimore Chronicle’s” Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlyle Group is run by “a veritable who’s who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man, Frank Carlucci, to CIA head and ex-President George Bush, Sr.

In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds.  When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same cities, at the same time. In 2008, Soros donated $5,000,000,000 (that’s Five Billion) to the Democratic National Committee, DNC, to insure Obama’s win and wins for many other Alinsky trained Radical Rules Anti-American Socialist. George has been contributing a billion plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene.

Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA. And I mustn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to.  In short, George Soros controls or influences most of the MSM. Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soros’ NEMESIS.

As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”

Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America ‘s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”

Some of the many NGOs (Non-Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are:  MoveOn.org, the Apollo Alliance, Media Matters for America, the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death in America), La Raza, and many more. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks.org<http:/ /discover the networks.org/>.

Poe continues, “Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”

Without Soros’ money, would the Saul Alinsky’s Chicago machine still be rolling?  Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would big money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?

America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros. Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America and his puppet, Barack Obama is leading the way.

The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”  —–

CONUNDRUMS…


My thamks to Jim Heck fot something to make anyone Think!

“A gun is like a parachute.  If you need one, and don’t have one. You’ll probably never need one again.”

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Here are six Conundrums of Socialism in the United States:

1. America is capitalist and greedy – yet half of the population is subsidized..

2. Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other Countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about, yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

By the way…1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.

Funny how that works.  And here’s another one worth considering.

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of  money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money? What’s interesting is      the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.  ANON

Think about it…. Am I the only one missing something?

It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they have  been fooled.——- – Mark Twain

ACTORS AND INTELLIGENCE!

My good friend Dr. Peter Forrest shared this look into the entertainment world. None of this surprised me as I seldom or never watch a movie unless a proven conservative like Clint Eastwood, Tom Selleck and the few others who have been brave enough to openly admit their conservative credentials. I have no idea who amassed this material but I would like to give them credit unless they desire to remain unknown?

Actors live in a make believe world and we buy into their world which gives them power, prestige and influence…..Of course, many actors are truly smart but that does not give them expertise just a soap box. It is up to us to expose fraud from truth, honest words from script.

The Einstein’s of Hollywood

Ever looked up the education credentials of Hollywood and New York soothsayers?   Most of them rely on knowledge clouds drifting across the Pacific, perhaps from an Asian mystic who wears lots of colorful beads.

 The mystic has brought them deep understanding of economics, governance, military affairs and especially science. It inspires bold words on most topics.

 LEONARDO DiCaprio’s self-declared climate expertise enables him to speak on the world’s environmental issues with a high-school education.  He never took a college biology, chemistry, physics or climatology course, yet he knows more than most scientists. He proved that by addressing climate change before a full gathering of the UN.

SEAN PENN’s quick takes on everything put him at the lofty level of an Einstein. He visited Iraq once and became an expert on that country.  The same for Iran.  He also became buddies with the brutal Venezuelan communist Hugo Chavez and consistently lauded that murderous thug. Now that Chavez is gone and Venezuelans are raiding dumpsters for food scraps, Penn is having a rare silent moment. Penn deserves some credit for becoming a world-affairs genius based on two years of auto mechanics classes at Santa Monica College.

KATY PERRY’s passion about politics and economics freed her to quit high school at 15 without compromising her expert status. She recently demonstrated wizardry by making an anti-Trump video. It suggested the new president would commit acts similar to forced World War II lockups of loyal Japanese Americans. Perry probably did not know the internment plan was developed and executed by DEMOCRAT President Roosevelt.

 ROBERT Danio must also be a quick learner. He acquired amazing scientific knowledge before dropping out of high school.  He knows so much about geology that he joined Artists Against Fracking.  (All the producing wells in his native Manhattan must have provided first-hand experience.)  He’s also an expert on pediatric medicine, enabling him to speak often against vaccinating infants and children.

HARRY BELAFONTE is another multiple-subject whiz who needed little formal education. Some people might think this talented singer might limit his words to songs since his IQ is so low.  Don’t worry. Despite advancing age, he remains expert on most things. When black people of greater intelligence (that’s most black people) say something moderate or conservative, he hurls “the N word” at them.  Decades ago, he loudly denounced Reagan’s elimination of CETA, the Comprehensive Employment Training Act.  It was one of the most wasteful federal programs ever — many vanished dollars, few jobs.  Belafonte tore into Reagan during an interview. Finally, the interviewer asked Belafonte what CETA stood for.  Belafonte had no clue. He knew almost nothing about the act.

ROSIE O’DONNELL was my personal favorite long before her hateful remark that Trump’s 10-year-old son looked autistic.  Her coarse philosophy must be that if you say something loudly, it need not be correct. She also must have skipped chemistry during her high-school education. Otherwise, she would have not have offered “proof” that 9/11 was an inside job. She often bellowed accumulated vast theological knowledge by age 9, when he was “ordained” as a preacher. He didn’t need more than a high-school education to keep marching forward. His most successful high school class must have been “Shystehood”.  Despite one scandal after another, his 2004 run for president stands out. The Federal Election Commission forced him to return $100,000 in taxpayer money provided by FEC. One of many abuses was his $145,146 charge for “Campaign letter preparation — Kinko’s.” Later, FEC fined Sharpton $285,000.that planes could not have brought down the Twin Towers because “steel doesn’t burn.” This constant jackass must not know that high temperatures DO reduce steel’s strength.

AL SHARPTON would be America’s greatest at-large criminal, if not for Hillary’s tens of millions swapped for influence and favors.  Sharpton owes nearly $5 million in delinquent taxes to IRS and New York State. Makes you wonder why NBC/MSNBC would ever hire him. Sharpton

JULIA ROBERTS proves that physical beauty does not ensure a beautiful brain. She had a fling at Georgia State University before pursuing acting lessons and joining a modeling group. Her acting and modeling skills guided her to such thoughtful observations as “Republican” comes between “reptile and “repugnant” in the dictionary.  Impressed?

BROOKE SHIELDS, an Obama supporter, verifies the Roberts theory – that physical beauty does not guarantee a beautiful brain. During her days as a boisterous animal-rights supporter, Shields had a mink coat custom-made.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN Somebody please whisper to Springsteen that his party’s business-crunching regulations and world-leading corporate tax rate compels U.S. manufacturers to go elsewhere.

Finally, two others are outside the entertainment world, disqualifying them from winning an Oscar, Emmy or Grammy.  Politicians Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters do compete for the Rock Head of the Year trophy each time they speak.  Pelosi frequently wins with comments like needing to pass a bill “so we can find out what’s in it.”  Waters has already locked up the 2017 trophy for suggesting a Trump impeachment over his campaign antics. Listen closely, Maxine. “Presidents can be impeached only for what they do in office could have been No. 1 on this list. He squabbled with nuns when in Catholic school. Transferring to a public school, he thought so little of the education experience that he skipped graduation. Had he gone to college, he might have majored in Hate 101. That’s what we hear when he’s not singing. He claims Trump is a “moron” who advocates “white nationalism.” Springsteen demonstrates the analytical skills’ void of most show-biz folk when he laments America’s industrialization decline. 

ANON

I hope you enjoy learning how smart some of these folks have become parading in front of a camera. If I were allowed to vote on which entertainer or the two astute Congresswomen would win an Oscar for “DUMB””, Maxine is the winner. C Brewer

FREEDOM IS NOT ALWAYS FREE!

I hope every democrat, republican, independent and especially our misguided young people who have been brainwashed by communists dressed like socialists. The following message is extremely important “Facts” recorded by history. At 88 I am in the twilight of some extra years granted and I have been blessed. I enlisted in the US Navy at 17 with the approval of my parents. I am proud I made this decision and I still tear up during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. Please share this with everyone you know to hopefully help unite us again. Clyde Brewer

Alexander’s Column · Nov. 7, 2018
The Right to Vote, Guaranteed by Patriot Veterans

It is a disgraceful irony that the freedom of those who advocate statist tyranny is ensured by generations of Patriot veterans who have defended Liberty.
Mark Alexander

“Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say, ‘What should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ … If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!” —Samuel Adams (1777)

Some have said this midterm election was the most critical in history. It wasn’t — far from it. But it was important.

As of this publication, Democrats have won enough congressional seats in the House to take control. But there was no “blue wave.” Republicans may have lost up to 34 House seats, but that compares very favorably to first midterm losses by Democrat presidents.

Demos lost 52 midterm seats in 1994 after Bill Clinton’s election, and a massive 63 midterm seats in 2010 after Barack Obama’s election.

Meanwhile, in the Senate, Republicans did more than just maintain their thin margin; they actually added three and possibly four seats, depending on whether narrow GOP leads hold up in Arizona.

As I’ve written previously, this midterm election was a referendum on Demo voter IQ and whether Democrat Party constituents could free themselves from the Demo/MSM’s “Hate Trump” chokehold on their opinion long enough to acknowledge that our nation is much better off now than it was two years ago.

After all, hating Donald Trump is tantamount to hating half of America.

The Trump administration’s domestic and foreign policy successes are extraordinary, and most notably his free-enterprise economic policies have benefited ALL Americans. In fact, it is those policies that were on the ballot yesterday, versus the fear, anger, hatred, and division offered by the Democrats.

I attended a Trump/Pence rally Sunday, where one of the most rousing ovations he received was in response to this remark: “I am asking every citizen from every party, every background and every race, color and creed, to reject the Democrat politics of anger and division, and to unite behind our proud and righteous destiny as Americans.”

But the Left’s anger and division ruled the day in more than 30 hotly contested congressional districts across the nation, where a majority of voters bought into Democrat hate-mongering and cast ballots against peace and prosperity, endeavoring to halt the progress of the last two years.

What we determined Tuesday is that a growing number of Americans lack the civic understanding to offer a thoughtful vote.

As Managing Editor Nate Jackson wrote on Election Day, “America’s Founders gave us, in the words of Benjamin Franklin, ‘a republic … if [we] can keep it.’ The way we keep that republic is to be informed about who and what we’re voting for. As John Adams wrote, ‘Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people.’ And as Samuel Adams put it, a citizen’s vote is ‘one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.'”

Regarding the election results, one thing is clear in this week when we honor American Veterans. The leftist gains in this midterm dishonor the service and sacrifice of millions of American Patriots in uniform and the generations who came before.

This Sunday marks the 100th anniversary of Veterans Day, a day that honors those who have, for generations, ensured our ability to have free elections.

Last weekend, I was contemplating the extraordinary life of my friend and former neighbor, Medal of Honor recipient Desmond Doss — a man who was small in stature and humble in spirit.

But his Medal of Honor citation, which outlines his extraordinary and repeated acts of valor — saving more than 75 men atop “Hacksaw Ridge” — reads like fiction. What he did simply doesn’t seem possible. But Desmond’s heroism during 22 days of action with the Medical Detachment, 307th Infantry, 77th Infantry Division between April 29 and May 21, 1945, are well documented. In my humble opinion (though he would never have accepted such praise), Desmond’s citation is among the most awe-inspiring of all 3,514 medals awarded since its inception.

In Desmond’s words, “I was praying the whole time. I just kept praying, ‘Lord, please help me get one more [man].'”

We set aside Veterans Day to honor the high price of sacrifice paid by generations of Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, and Coastguardsmen. They have carried forward the banner of Liberty since the first shots were fired at Lexington and Concord. Millions of American Patriots have honored their oaths “to support and defend” the Liberty that was “endowed by our Creator” and enshrined in our Constitution.

Of such sacrifice, 19th century philosopher John Stuart Mill, in his essay “The Contest In America,” wrote, “War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

It is a disgraceful irony that, to this day, the freedom of “miserable creatures” who advocate statist tyranny is ensured by generations of Patriot veterans who have defended Liberty.

Of such Patriots, Gen. Douglas MacArthur said, “My estimate of him was formed on the battlefields many, many years ago, and has never changed. I regarded him then, as I regard him now, as one of the world’s noblest figures; not only as one of the finest military characters, but also as one of the most stainless. His name and fame are the birthright of every American citizen. In his youth and strength, his love and loyalty, he gave all that mortality can give. He needs no eulogy from me, or from any other man. He has written his own history and written it in red on his enemy’s breast. But when I think of his patience under adversity, of his courage under fire, and of his modesty in victory, I am filled with an emotion of admiration I cannot put into words. He belongs to history as furnishing one of the greatest examples of successful patriotism. He belongs to posterity as the instructor of future generations in the principles of liberty and freedom. He belongs to the present, to us, by his virtues and by his achievements. … Duty, honor, country: Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying point to build courage when courage seems to fail, to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith, to create hope when hope becomes forlorn.”

It’s worth remembering the words of Army Veteran Charles M. Province: “It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. It is the soldier, who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.”

Veterans, it’s been said, are those who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America” for an amount up to and including their life.

Indeed, as President Ronald Reagan declared: “Peace fails when we forget what we stand for. It fails when we forget that our republic is based on firm principles, that with them we are the last best hope of man. … Peace is only maintained and won by those who have clear eyes and brave minds. In memory of those who gave the last full measure of devotion, may our efforts to achieve lasting peace gain strength.”

Our family’s Patriot warrior ancestry begins with those who fought with the Overmountain Men at Kings Mountain. Those early veterans turned the tide of the Revolutionary War, and their legacy extends through the generations to our own son, who today is a Marine infantry officer.

Patriots, on this Veterans Day, and every day of the year, may God bless our men and women in uniform — those who have stood and continue to stand in harm’s way. For their steadfast devotion to duty, honor, and country, we, the American people, offer them and their families our humble gratitude and heartfelt thanks. It is with eternal gratitude that we remember those who have paid the ultimate price in service to our nation.

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13)

Footnote: Fellow Patriots, I ask you to consider a second vote this week that will pay dividends far beyond this election cycle. Please support your Patriot team and help us support and defend Liberty and extend our nation’s legacy of Liberty to the next generation. Support our 2018 Year-End Campaign today. We rely solely on the financial generosity of Patriots like you.
