For Real Americans Everywhere: Lest We Forget

     Just a quick reminder, before I go offline for the Christmas weekend:

     Government kills.

     All governments, at all levels.

     All elements of government, whatever their nominal function.

     Killing is the only thing they’re good at.

     The events of January 6? Capitol police officers killed three protestors. All three were unarmed. None of the three were violent. They died anyway. No protestor killed anyone.

     Read about the assault on Randy Weaver and his family. Read about the assault on the Branch Davidians in Waco, Texas. Read about LaVoy Finicum. Read about what was done to John Singer, because he wanted to homeschool his own children.

     Read this heartbreaking story. When I read it, I had an immediate urge to lock, load, go to the Anne Arundel County facility where those two dogs are being held, and liberate them by force. Yes, at my age; nothing upsets me more than the mistreatment of a domesticated animal. I’m not sure why I haven’t done so already. I may yet.

     This is what governments do. They kill. They know no other method. Every edict of every government is backed up by the threat of deadly force.

     Apparently despite the many attributions, George Washington never said this, so I will:

Like fire and fear,
Is a dangerous servant,
And a terrible master.

     Now we have Usurpers in control of the federal government. They’re determined to reduce us to serfdom. Their every move since January 20, 2021 has been to impoverish and subjugate us. Simultaneously, they’ve allowed the worst among us to run riot, looting, vandalizing, and killing without let or hindrance.

     Do you really think they won’t resort to deadly force to compel us to accept their “mandates” and take their poisons? Do you really think, after the wholesale purges of our Army, that they won’t ignore the Posse Comitatus Act and send tanks rumbling down the streets of un-subjugated cities and towns? They’re just working out the numbers. They know that resistance is building, and they don’t want to face an un-pacified populace come November 2022.

     Henry Bowman knew what to do. The hour is approaching when we must decide whether we’ll follow his example, or submit to the Omnipotent State. They’re coming for our guns. They’ve made no secret of it. After they have them, we’ll be helpless.

     “Take your choice – there is no other – and your time is running out.” – Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

     But do have a very Merry Christmas.

    May you and your family enjoy a very Merry Christmas.

    I agree with you. Next Christmas could be a Christmas of a different sort.

    One need only look at how totalitarian AUS. became, once they disarmed the public, & had an excuse to do so, they did their best to be china.

    Mr Porretto,

    Thank you for all you do in providing this forum, and for the content you publish here.

    Just providing the link to show where others can find out what Henry Bowman knew, and how he responded to tyrannical over-reach is a great service, to those that haven’t read that tome yet.  Although, truth be told – shame on them if they haven’t.  And FWIW – I’ve loaned my hardback copy to several friends – for their edification and clues as to possible ways to respond to the current and potential future events.  😉  I’ll try to buy another copy of the book – in paperback [link:] (I’m not rich, you know!), to help compensate for any lost revenue from those that just download the .pdf.  I may not be a writer by trade, but I do recognize the value  of intellectual property – and try to respect it as best I can.

    I’d like to offer the following prayer for our Nation.  I didn’t write it – but I do like it and repeat it often:

    “Heavenly Father, our country needs You.
    We have turned away from You and evil
    forces are pervading our land.  Pour Your
    Holy Spirit on us.  Open our eyes and ears to
    the evil around us.  Raise up leaders who
    love and follow You.  Give us courage to
    speak up so that we can once again live as
    one nation under God  Unite us.  Protect us.
    Forgive us.  We ask all this in Jesus’ name.

    In closing:

    Merry Christmas to you and yours, and may Gods blessings be upon us in this wonderous season.

    Fran, may God richly bless you for your work and wisdom here, and may He protect you and yours in the new year and always.  When the time comes, every year I try to remind myself and others; that “the Christmas we get, we deserve”. Let’s pray that next Christmas we deserve better…(apologies to Greg Lake)

    They said there’ll be snow at Christmas
    They said there’ll be peace on Earth
    But instead it just kept on raining
    A veil of tears for the Virgin Birth
    I remember one Christmas morning
    A winter’s light and a distant choir
    And the peal of a bell and that Christmas tree smell
    And their eyes full of tinsel and fire

    They sold me a dream of Christmas
    They sold me a Silent Night
    They told me a fairy story
    ‘Till I believed in the Israelite
    And I believed in Father Christmas
    And I looked to the sky with excited eyes
    ‘Till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn
    And I saw him and through his disguise

    I wish you a hopeful Christmas
    I wish you a brave New Year
    All anguish pain and sadness
    Leave your heart and let your road be clear
    They said there’ll be snow at Christmas
    They said there’ll be peace on Earth
    Hallelujah, Noel, be it Heaven or hell
    The Christmas we get we deserve

    Best wishes to all,see you on the other side.

    • enn ess on December 24, 2021 at 2:38 PM

    Well said! There is more truth to this than most will admit. History proves this to be true. All govt. throughout history have acted this way as soon as they figured out they could get away with it.

    If those out there have not read Atlas Shrugged, please read it.It is surprisingly correct and on the mark depicting the same things that is happening throughout the world today. It is straight out of the Communist Manifesto play book play by play.

    May all out there have  Mele Kaliki Maka & Ho Maka Hiki Ho!

    Long Live Our Republic
