As the FBI, you know, that seriously corrupt, treasonous and politically left alphabet agency we often talk about, gets on with the process of doing insulting in depth background checks on our beloved military men and women who are stationed in DC in what looks like a Somalian war torn prison city, surrounded by high wire fences, gates, sniper nests, military checkpoints, vehicle barriers, shuttered businesses, walls, deserted streets, no go areas, just in case one or more of them go rogue at the ceremony installing a man who is probably the most perverted, criminal master mind of his own crime family and certainly a traitor and hater of all good things American as President, we hear a report from the Los Angeles Times, a great biased liberal non news or truth rag, that the idea of the Biden Administration is to make America a copy of California.
DC sure does not look like a city that is about to, in celebration and joy, place a new President in the White House, one that was legally, fairly, constitutionally elected by a majority of Americans! (It looks more like the placement of a very unpopular communist dictatorship in a South American hell hold) run by the totally wrong people, Hussein Obama, and definitely NOT supported by the majority of Americans! ( Don’t let them or anyone else tell you it is about Covid, it is ONLY about making villains of every Trump supporter or conservative and labeling them (us) all right wing radical extremists and racists.)
Now if that does not scare any true American I do not know what will.
The rag ( I am unable to call it a newspaper) quotes “expert political commentator and analyst”, Gray Davis, a former Democratic Governor of California, (a man I wrote about a few days ago who was the first Governor to be impeached and replaced with a Republican, so is obviously well loved and respected.)
He explained how Kamala Harris, the ahhh…VP…😂😂 will be attending all administration political meetings with Hussein Obama, whoops, I mean his proxy Sniffer Joe Biden, and will have the last say to Joe after the meeting. I quote here his words from the filthy rag, “She’ll be sharing ideas, innovations and breakthroughs from California that might help solve problems on the national level.”
Again I ask, are you scared yet?? You should be!! There is nothing good about California, apart from some scenery and the weather, and it is the land of fruits and nuts!
I further quote from that rag here just to help you understand the seriousness of this thought process. “The Golden State is emerging as “the de facto policy think tank” for the Biden team” and said, “there is no place the incoming administration is leaning on more heavily for inspiration in setting a progressive policy agenda.”
Mmmmm….. happy or scared now!
We are talking about a bankrupt state, a state locked down, a state where schools look to not reopen the entire year until January 2022 and only with proof of a Covid vaccination! A state with more red tape, more idiotic progressive laws, a state with totally rabid adherence to destroying the first two amendments, a state who welcomes illegals, no, actually provides benefits and sanctuary for them, a state where more people have left than gone to, a state who has funnily trying to recall its governor and has 1.1 of 1.3 million signatures required to do that, a state that regularly refuses to do any forest control and fire mitigation hence annually having massive Forrest fires causing billions in damages and adding to the state deficit. A state attempting to put into place tuition free schools and colleges and absolutely insane “ green” initiatives. A state that stands to receive a huge tax payer funded bailout to cover all its losses with its progressive policies. ( so they can build up more debt!!)
I could go on about California but anyone with a few brain cells understands it is not a role model state! However, to the left, it is pure utopia!!
We know that in the first few days of this incoming socialist administration that is tasked with completing the fundamental change to America, we will rejoin the WHO, may cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline, will order the Dept of Education to extend the pause on student loans, will rejoin the Paris Accord, reverse the Muslim ban on Muslims from certain Islamic anti American countries, reverse immigration laws and policies implemented by Trump that have kept us safe, issue a 100 day mask mandate on all federal property and interstate travel, extend the ability for tenants who have not or are not paying rent to stay risk free in the properties, regardless of the landlords terrible financial burdens, introduce legislation for thousands of electric car charging stations nationwide. I again could go on with the disastrous things about to happen and understand some will be challenged in the courts. Time will tell.
So, an America based on the Californian Commie dream state!!

I wanted my readers to fully understand what is happening with the NRA. The MSM and especially the NY AG is out there sprouting untruths and they are being eaten up by all anti 2nd Amendment proponents. Please read the whole article as copied here and share with all your gun owning 2nd amendment loving patriot friends. I have just renewed our membership in the NRA and am confident they will be here for years fighting the lefts vicious lies and defending our rights to own and bear arms!
Florida Alert! “The NRA is not ‘bankrupt’ or ‘going out of business’
While the headlines in the mainstream media scream about NRA filing bankruptcy, NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre explains, “The NRA is not ‘bankrupt’ or ‘going out of business.’ The NRA is not insolvent.” We are as financially strong as we have been in years.”
Below is a letter from Wayne LaPierre and a question and answer section that explains how NRA is moving forward and leaving New York behind.
NRA has developed a plan to move it’s corporate status to Texas and leave behind the toxic political environment in New York. This paves the way for NRA to continue to protect gun rights without the political shenanigans in which New York engages.

NRA Dumps New York to Reincorporate in Texas, Announces New Strategic Plan
Dear NRA Members & Supporters:
Today, the NRA announced a restructuring plan that positions us for the long-term and ensures our continued success as the nation’s leading advocate for constitutional freedom – free from the toxic political environment of New York.
The plan can be summed up quite simply: We are DUMPING New York, and we are pursuing plans to reincorporate the NRA in Texas.
To facilitate the strategic plan and restructuring, the NRA and one of its subsidiaries filed voluntary chapter 11 petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division. As you may know, chapter 11 proceedings are often utilized by businesses, nonprofits and organizations of all kinds to streamline legal and financial affairs.
Under the plan, the NRA will continue what we’ve always done – confronting anti-gun, anti-self-defense and anti-hunting activities and promoting constitutional advocacy that helps law-abiding Americans. Our work will continue as it always has. No major changes are expected to the NRA’s operations or workforce.
Importantly, our plans do not impact your membership at any level.
NRA supporters will continue to enjoy all their full member benefits – from new members to Life Members to Benefactor Members. We will continue to publish and deliver your magazines. We will continue to train Americans and teach them firearm safety. We will continue to teach hunter safety. But most importantly, we will continue to fight for your freedom and the freedom of all Americans – as we have for all these years. In fact, we are expanding our national platform.
The plan aims to streamline costs and expenses, proceed with pending litigation in a coordinated and structured manner, and realize many financial and strategic advantages.
You know that our opponents will try to seize upon this news and distort the truth. Don’t believe what you read from our enemies. The NRA is not “bankrupt” or “going out of business.” The NRA is not insolvent. We are as financially strong as we have been in years.
But they know today’s announcement makes us bigger, stronger and more prepared for the fight for freedom.
We are leaving the state of an attorney general who, just a few months ago, vowed to put us out of business through an abuse of legal and regulatory power. In fact, the gross overreach of the New York Attorney General and New York Governor has been resoundingly criticized by powerful national groups like the ACLU and a host of prominent legal scholars.
Subject to court approval, the NRA is pursuing plans to reincorporate in the State of Texas. The Lone Star State is home to more than 400,000 NRA Members and the site of our 2021 Annual Meeting being held in Houston. Texas values the contributions of the NRA, celebrates our law-abiding members, and joins us as a partner in upholding constitutional freedom. Under this plan, we seek protection from New York officials who illegally abused and weaponized the powers they wield against the NRA and its members. You can be assured the Association will continue the fight to protect your interests in New York – and all forums where the NRA is unlawfully singled out for its Second Amendment advocacy.
This plan represents a pathway to opportunity, growth and progress. This is the most transformational moment in the history of the NRA. And it involves all of you.
The NRA will continue to promote its Second Amendment advocacy, sponsor firearms training, and work with its network of instructors and volunteers in furtherance of its mission. This plan actually streamlines all of the NRA’s activities and improves our operational processes.
I know we have welcomed many of you to our headquarters in Fairfax, Virginia. We have no immediate plans to relocate, but we are forming a special committee to explore our strategic options in this regard. We want to determine if there are advantages to relocating our HQ operations to another state. I have asked our leadership team to explore all options that benefit the NRA and its members.
What’s most important is leading the fight for Second Amendment freedom and serving our members. We will do that from anywhere that works best for you and for our cause.
All membership dues and financial donations will be fully dedicated to supporting our operations and public advocacy. This plan actually improves our business. It protects us from costly, distracting and unprincipled attacks from anti-2A politicians aimed at attacking the NRA because we are a potent political force. We know that the gun ban lobby will never stop – fueled by a hatred of your freedoms and by wealthy benefactors. Our plan is the best way to confront them. We are now prepared for a better future. In fact, to me, it feels like the dawn of a new day.
We are revitalized, well-positioned, and steadfast in our commitment to fight for you. To learn more, please visit www.nra.org/forward.
Thank you for your unwavering spirit and being part of the NRA’s future. Both hold incredible promise for our country – and the freedoms in which it believes. Wayne LaPierre, NRA CEO & EVP
Questions & Answers What did the NRA announce?
This is a transformational moment for the NRA. We announced a new strategic plan called Project Freedom.
The NRA’s new strategic plan involves pursuing reincorporating the Association from the State of New York to the State of Texas – home to more than 400,000 NRA members and site of the 2021 NRA Annual Meeting being held in Houston.
The NRA’s restructuring plan also aims to help the NRA streamline costs and expenses, proceed with pending litigation in a coordinated and structured manner, and realize many financial and strategic advantages.
The restructuring plan positions our organization for the future – and ensures our continued success as the nation’s leading advocate for constitutional freedom.
Is the NRA going “bankrupt?”
No. In fact, this move comes at a time when the NRA is in its strongest financial condition in years.
To facilitate its reorganization, the NRA and one of its subsidiaries filed voluntary chapter 11 petitions in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division. The NRA is not insolvent.
We expect no impacts to NRA programming.
Nothing is more important to the NRA than protecting the Second Amendment rights of our law-abiding members. We will be as effective as ever in advocating for your rights, promoting firearms education and training, and engaging in public endeavors.
What happens to my NRA membership?
Nothing. Your membership remains intact.
NRA supporters will continue to enjoy all their full member benefits – from new members to Life Members to Benefactor Members. We will continue to publish and deliver your magazines. We will continue to train Americans and teach them firearms safety. We will continue to teach hunter safety.
But most importantly, we will continue to fight for your freedom as we have for all these years. In fact, we are expanding our national platform.
Can people still join the NRA – and why should they?
Absolutely! There could not be a more exciting time to join the NRA. We are expanding our national platform, and our future is bright and secure. We invite all law-abiding gun owners and all Americans to be part of it.
By filing for chapter 11, is the NRA admitting it mismanaged donor funds?
Not at all. We have utilized all donor contributions in furtherance of the NRA’s mission. This action is necessitated primarily by one thing: the unhinged and political attack against the NRA by the New York Attorney General.
A restructuring plan is a proven mechanism for streamlining legal and business affairs. All membership fees and donations will continue to be used in furtherance of our Second Amendment advocacy.
Can you guarantee member donations will be used to protect our Second Amendment rights?
All donations are used for the purpose of advancing the NRA’s mission, period.
Should I donate to the NRA during the chapter 11 process, or should I wait until the Association emerges from the restructuring process?
We need your support now – as we confront a Biden Administration that has vowed to attack your Second Amendment freedoms. All donations are used in furtherance of our mission.
Will there be impacts to endowed funds?
No. Endowed funds will still be used to support the NRA’s core mission: protecting the Second Amendment.
When will the restructuring process be completed? This process begins immediately. The NRA is expected to emerge from these proceedings within the next six months.
What can I do to support the NRA?
Join today. Promote our cause. Get fully engaged. We must continue to win the fight for constitutional freedom.
John Matze, the CEO of Parler, has had to remove his family from their home and relocate with private security to a hidden destination due to death threats and actual personal security breaches from the left.
Parlor is one of the social media platforms that many conservatives, including me, had moved to after our forced removal from Facebook and Twitter and other Liberal anti 1st Amendment platforms.
Mr Matzes’ only crime was to supply a platform where conservatives, or who ever, could voice their God given right to free speech. You know, the part that is guaranteed by the constitution which is, as of today, as far as I know, the ultimate law of the land.
Parler was totally taken down by Amazon who hosted the web service Parler app used. This was done summarily with little to no warning and against the legal written contract Amazon and Parler had. Of course, Amazon has so much money it can fight that battle for ever in any courts despite the fact they know they are in the wrong.
Amazon is not alone in these terrible actions. Apple has removed certain conservative media platforms and apps making them unavailable to i-phone users or from any Apple product. Another company with enough money to fight and defend any wrong moves they make. Add Google to the ugly mix as they have done the same thing and our voices have pretty much been silenced. I am on Gab, which Apple makes almost impossible to get on, and MeWe. Unfortunately these two sites combined are minute compared with the reach of the other companies that only allow socialist chatter.
Mr Matze is not alone in receiving threats on his and his families lives. His employees are being similarly attacked. Some have had to relocate to different states to avoid the threats of violence.
Folks. This is not the America I love. But this is the sad face of the new Socialist America coming at you in the next two years as if on steroids.
It does not surprise me that the MSM do not cover this or that Joe Biden does not mention it or come out against this harassment of American citizens.
It appears a group called UGNazi, a bunch of leftist, anarchist professional hackers bears a lot of the responsibility for what has happened with Parler. This controversial group has hacked every account Mr Matze has and has released into the internet, all his personal passwords, his personal details plus those of his family including his home address. They have sent threats promising to “come through his front door.”
This group has been around since 2012. Some have been arrested over the years involved in murder and other serious crimes. The name means Underground Nazis. It was originally formed in 2011 but became known from 2012. This is their website address. Check out the names they list and then research what crimes they are responsible for. You may need a Twitter account to be able to do some of that. I don’t have one anymore!!
(You can get more info of this despicable group of low lives through Wikipedia.)
My question here and relates to the title of my missive, is why are these people free and able to do what they do? Are they working for that really corrupt set of Alphabet Agencies like the CIA or FBI? Doing their dirty work? I would hazard a guess that they are. When you look at the incredible amount of resources being spent by the DOJ and the FBI on the Capitol disturbance and the apparent success they have at tracking hundreds of individual citizens who don’t have any record yet, but these UGNazi players are free to perform their vile dirty work? Collusion and protection from, by and with our federal agencies has to be happening. There is no other explanation for it. None.
There is no action vile enough to stop the FBI from coming after conservatives in this country. Let’s be honest. The Feds have a terrible record. Ruby Ridge, David Koresh and the Branch Dividian cult based in Waco, Texas, who lost around 80 men, women and children in an illegal military style attack by the ATF ( another hugely corrupt federal agency) and state agents over a few rifles. Then there was an example that was abhorrent to me, the deliberate and truly illegal assassination by state and FBI agents of a true American patriot, LaVoy Finnicum. ( My hero). He was an Oregon militia member involved in the fight against the illegal actions of another Corrupt Federal Agency ( BLM) and he had dared to talk out against and question the federal government and their agents to their attempts to destroy a family of ranchers, the Bundy family. This entire family are my hero’s. They stood firm despite illegal charges, their cattle stolen, jail time and physical assaults by federal agents. They were all subsequently found innocent but their lives, livelihoods and belief in America was destroyed.
I have a question to everyone.
How come that conservatives web sites and their memberships be totally purged and they become totally unable to access any platform to spread our words and ideals, but pedophilic and filthy porn sites and those belonging to vile left people who hate everything America is, can continue on unabated with no fear of having their voices silenced? Are they all doing the work of these Alphabet Agencies?
I think the answer is YOU BET THEY ARE. Not only are they in bed with these corrupt, treasonous agencies but are doing their evil work for them with impunity and no fear of retribution.
I think the quickest way to maybe begin the draining of the swamp would be to give these agencies a total enema, placing the tubes in the vile, filthy rear ends of the FBI and other agencies like the ATF. However, under Biden who benefits greatly from their treasonous actions, that will not happen.
(I am posting this as it is relevant here in my Home State of Florida and important for all gun owners and 2nd Amendment supporters to understand that this is the tip of the iceberg. Federally far more intrusive and restrictive laws are being written for a Democrat controlled House and White House! You may have seen the aggressive actions the NY AG, Letitia James, was taking against the NRA who today filed for bankruptcy there. She was deliberately attempting to destroy them and is today celebrating the announced bankruptcy while stating she is still going after them! Vengeful nasty Democrat. They, the NRA, are moving from NY to Texas where they will re-incorporate. There will be no stoppage in actions taken or membership benefits.
The following was written by Marion P. Hammer USF Executive Director and NRA Past President.

Please share the above information far and wide to friends, family and in particular gun owners in Florida. The majority of these Bills are designed to begin the movement to ban gun ownership and are written by Democrats. Luckily the Florida House is under Republican control so most of the above may not come to fruition. I posted this mainly because we need to know what is going on as we cannot afford to be blindsided.
The New York Times, nicknamed the Old Gray Lady, you know, the morally and financially bankrupt paper that has become the leftists international source of reference on all matters anti Trump and anti America, annually prints a list of 52 countries they recommend for family and friendly travel!!
This year they suggested Iran!! You know, Iran, the chief world wide terror-sponsoring, genocide-intending, nuclear-bomb-building, anti Israel Islamic Republic. I mean, Iran is one of the most intolerant and oppressive regime run countries anywhere on this earth. Remember, they throw LGBTQI orientated folks off of roof tops or hang them from cranes in the cities for the population to see!
Let us look at their record on Human Rights for a few minutes. I know this may offend any leftist reading this as their leader, Crime Boss Joe Biden, kinda loves Iran. After all, while he was Obama’s VP, he helped John Kerry negotiate (😂😂) a wonderful agreement with Iran whereby they could carry on developing their nuclear ambitions and it was paid for with billions in cash flown over there in a few planes!! (By the way he wants to go back to that plus remove the sanctions and oil embargo despite the incredible advances in peace in the region under President Trump.)
Iran executes more people except for China and are known to hang juveniles from under the age of 15 too!!
Ethnic, religious and linguistic minority communities face persistent persecution from the Regime under the intolerant Ayatollah ruled government. Freedom of expression is absolutely forbidden and the suppression of occupations like Lawyers, environmental activists, woman’s rights activists, trade unionists, bloggers, people of conscious and Christians or believers in any other religion than Islam ( you know that archaic, uncivilized political ideology that is as far from religion as any belief could be.). Human rights activists are often given multi decades long sentences along with severe hundred plus lashes with a whip that often leaves the victim scarred and disabled for life. Revolutionary Courts, their justice system, are cruel and dispense anything other than justice.
Torture is prevalent, in fact pretty much routine and citizens confessions are usually obtained under brutal torture in brutal medieval facilities. These confessions are used and accepted by the courts readily and long sentences are handed down. The people live in absolute fear from the Religious police and those neighbors that are ready to report anyone’s smallest infraction to the authorities.
Even the UN, ( One World Nation Advocates), not exactly a very auspicious group, has condemned Iran and their total lack of Human Rights. Alcohol is totally forbidden in Iran and the consumption or even possession of it will bring the wrath of the Muslim clerics and legal system down upon you. Music for dance is forbidden. Musical instruments are seen as bad for your souls.
I am printing here the list of DO NOT DO when you visit Iran with your families for that great annual vacation suggested by the NYT!! I cannot wait to visit. 😂😂
DO NOT TALK POLITICS.
DO NOT SHOW PUBLIC DISPLAYS OF AFFECTION. ( No hand holding or pecks on the cheeks!)
DO NOT BRING, PURCHASE OR CONSUME ALCOHOL.
NEVER CALL THE GULF THE ARABIAN GULF BUT REFER TO IT AS THE PERSIAN GULF.
DO NOT THROW TOILET PAPER IN TOILETS!! THEIR SYSTEM IS NOT DESIGNED TO TAKE IT.
DO NOT EVER SHAKE HANDS WITH MEMBERS OF THE OPPOSITE SEX IN PUBLIC. ( Certainly do not put your arm around a person of the opposite sex even for a photo!)
NEVER WEAR SHOES INDOORS.
NEVER TAKE PHOTOS OF ANY GOVERNMENT OWNED BUILDING OR FACILITY.
THEY DO NOT LIKE THE THUMBS UP SIGN SO DON’T DO IT.
BLOWING YOUR NOSE IN PUBLIC IS A DEFINITE NO NO.
YOU PROBABLY DO NOT WANT TO DRIVE THERE. THE TRAFFIC CONDITIONS ARE HORRENDOUS AND PROBABLY ABOUT THE MOST STRESSFUL ANYWHERE ESPECIALLY IN TEHRAN.
DO NOT TAKE PHOTOS OF IRANIANS AT ALL. THEY ARE PETRIFIED THEY WOULD END UP ON A SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND FACE SEVERE RETRIBUTION. AFTER ALL, EVERY SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM IS BANNED IN IRAN.
NEVER RIDE IN AN UNMARKED TAXI. IN TEHRAN THERE ARE TWO RIDE SHARE COMPANIES CONSIDERED SAFE!!
The above is just a small list of things to not do on your exciting vacation trip to Iran!! I can certainly see why the New York Times recommended it as a great family destination!! Up to 2018 the NYT even offered their own tours accompanied by their “journalists” ( now that is a funny and extremely inaccurate word for their writers!) where for up to $135,000 you could have a luxury trip to Iran and Cuba or other exclusive communist, rabid dictatorships and terrorist supporting countries that hated America!!
You may be wondering if Israel made that exclusive travel list of places to visit. The short answer is HELL NO!! Why would they recommend the only really civilized democracy in the region?
I guess I can see why I do not ever read that terrible rag or take notice of anything they say. One of the historically greatest papers in the world has become totally irrelevant and extremely socialist in their writings and contributions.
Yesterday, after a roughly two hour debate, with no firm evidence even offered apart from rabid lying rhetoric, the leftist controlled House, under Nasty Nancy, voted 232 – 197 to impeach President Donald J Trump for the second time in four years. This was not a lawful procedure. The impeachment debate happened without any Judiciary Committee hearings. Not one iota of evidence was shown or discussed. The articles of impeachment were rushed through from beginning to end in under a week. Totally unprecedented. This was a made for TV, badly scripted, full of lies and blatant exaggerated untruths crap show by the swamp and the enemy within our Constitutional Republic. It was disgusting. It was not our finest hour. It was just plain wrong in every way. It was a great example of what this country could and will look like under a socialist regime where differences of opinion are dealt with arbitrarily by the Proletariat leadership of the 21st century Democratic Socialist Party.
There were 10 so called Republican “Quisling” Traitors who rushed to vote for his impeachment. I am going to list each of their miserable low life treasonous names so you, my readers and followers, can impart that knowledge to everyone you know. These people must never hold a GOP post again. They must never be allowed to suck on the teats of the American tax payers again like the swine they are. No, not even as a dog catcher. Please post this article or even just their names everywhere you have a voice. Then keep doing the same over and over!!
The first disgusting person I want to mention is Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, who voted to impeach as she stated the protest would not have happened without the Trumpster!! Her words were that he summoned the mob. He incited the mob. He assembled the mob. He then lit the flame of the “attack.” She lied.
Joining this miserable sorry excuse of a traitor to the cause are the following members.
GOP Reps. Dan Newhouse of Washington.
Adam Kinzinger of Illinois.
Fred Upton of Michigan.
Jaime Herrera Beutler of Washington.
John Katko of New York.
Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio.
Tom Rice of South Carolina.
David Valadao of California.
Peter Meijer of Michigan.
Look at the States they are from!! California, New York, Michigan, Washington, Illinois! Hmmm…
REMEMBER EACH OF THEIR MISERABLE NAMES.
REMEMBER WHERE THEY ARE FROM.
REMEMBER THEY EACH BROKE THEIR OATHS YESTERDAY.
THEY ARE NOT WORTHY TO BE CALLED AMERICANS.
If these are your representatives then your duty is clear. Write to each, text, e-mail or call their offices. Visit their local office clinics. Let them and their representatives know in no uncertain terms, that what they did is totally 100% unforgivable and that you will do everything in your power, alongside the 75,000,000 Trump supporters, to ensure their political careers as Republicans is over. (Let them run as Democrats as that truthfully was who they have become or always were.)
The following are some of the words President Trump used at the rally in question. There is nothing in them to incite violence or unlawfulness. “I know that everyone here will soon be marching over to the Capitol building to peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
All summer Democrats have made hateful speeches defending the illegal rioting and destruction from the left leaning lunatic fringe organizations like ANTIFA and BLM. The hypocrisy must not be wasted on any of you. These groups of anarchists have destroyed property, killed cops, vandalized monuments, committed massive arson attacks, destroyed many businesses mostly owned by ethnic minorities. All the above is totally acceptable to Nasty Nancy and her socialist friends. In fact they barely are worth a mention. After all, they were just peacefully protesting Social Injustice, Racial inequality and White Privilege!! Nothing to see there. Just move on.
America, we live in trying but historic times. History will either be made by patriots in the next few years and our Constitutional Republic saved, or we will continue down the totally destructive path chosen by almost half of the ignorant, uneducated and uncaring America hating voters in our country.
Our choice. Our problems to solve. Our resolve to use all legal methods to fix the harm being done is on our shoulders. We need to stand strong. Stand firm. Stand resolute. Upright. Just like our beloved President Trump!
In this post I want to send all my readers a message I received from the III%er group of which I have been a member for years. It is an important message in this time of our history as the left is doing everything it can to entrap and to remove any and all conservative values and to harm all those of us who hold them. Please read it and pass it on to everyone you know who it may affect or who may be thinking of marching to or protesting prior to or on the 20th January. DO NOT FALL INTO THEIR TRAP OR BECOME A PART OF THEIR RED FLAG OPERATIONS!
We’re sure most of you have received word by now that there are armed militia marches that are soon to take place at Capitol buildings, federal buildings, and courthouses all around our nation from January 16th through the 20th. First, we would like to take time to set the record straight, yet again, that we are not a militia, nor a paramilitary group. We are law-abiding, red-blooded Americans from all races, creeds, colors, and religions who are worried about our election’s integrity and the future of our Republic. We feel that our election system is no longer trustworthy and that our vote was cancelled out by proven voter fraud. We’re upset that our election integrity has been tainted. For the public: please note, there are many different Three Percenter groups and organizations out there. We are the largest and oldest, and we do not speak for others, and others do not speak for us, either by words or actions.
We fully support freedom of speech and the right to bear arms, however we question the organizers of these armed marches and their intent. We believe that these events were crafted by the left for two main reasons: in order for the FBI to see who will attend in order to have Democratic lawmakers label them as domestic terrorists, and to give fuel to the fire to strip law-abiding citizens of their right to bear arms. Regardless of who these events were created by or for, this will most certainly be the outcome. Do not be fooled patriots. Do not attend these rallies in any form and stay away from Washington DC during this time at all costs. We are trying our hardest to NOT get our organization listed as a domestic terrorist organization. In the event this were to happen this organization would be dissolved immediately in order to prevent our members from becoming felons overnight. It is imperative you do not attend these rallies as members of our organization or under the banner of any 3%. Our movement and organization depends on it.
With the outlandish attacks on our freedoms by big tech and lawmakers as of late, the left continues to push harder and harder each day. They are currently drafting up legislation to punish Trump supporters and deem them domestic terrorists just for attending a peaceful rally, as well as legislation to restrict us from owning certain firearms, magazines, and even ammunition. We plead with you: DO NOT give them the means to see these sinister plans through. Do not show up to these rallies and taint our Patriot movement. As we have seen with the recent Capitol siege, it only takes a few bad apples for the Democrats to want to throw away the whole bunch. We condemn the violence shown towards police, the breaching of our Nation’s Capitol building, and the vandalism that took place inside. We mourn for the deaths of Police Officer Howard Liebengood, Police Officer Brian Sicknick, and Veteran Ashli Babbit who succumbed to their injuries from that day. We want to thank those who used their constitutional right to peacefully assemble on January 6th in order for our voice to be heard. Our voice was certainly heard.
We must band together to push back against the overwhelming attacks that are being launched against conservatives and republicans alike, but we must also be careful and meticulous about how to go about it so that while we’re defending one freedom we’re not giving up ground on another. Be smart patriots and don’t let emotion cloud your judgement. The cool, calm, and collected will most certainly win this battle.
The latest idiocy to come from an obviously incredibly stupid Democrat, Congressman Bennie Thompson, (D/MS), made headlines today. He wants Senators Ted Cruz (R/TX) and Josh Hawley (R-MO) to be placed on the ——- guess what ——- THE NO FLY LIST!!!! Yep, the one suspected or known terrorists are on!! So, let me try to put this in some sort of perspective. These two patriotic Senators obeyed their Oath of Office and did the constitutionally correct thing by raising objections to the obviously fraudulent election results in certain states, as Congress rushed headlong into certifying the results like lemmings throwing themselves off a cliff!!! That in the eyes of the left make them dangerous and obvious terrorists??
Thompson who chairs the Homeland Security Committee, believes in consequences!! (There is that word they love to use as long as it only applies to Republicans!)
Again, let me try put this in perspective. If you do the right thing constitutionally and legally but that differs from the lefts narrative then you are obviously a home grown domestic terrorist and a clear and present danger to socialism !! Hmmmm…..
Apparently today (Wednesday) the Congressional Black Caucus will open their investigations into the protest at the Capitol Building. Theirs will apparently be carried out “fairly” and “independently” of all other investigations and will concentrate on the horrific racial actions of white privileged protesters who they call rioters and insurrectionists. I guess they want to know why severe physical actions were not taken against these racist KKK (the Klan from the Democrat Party) Trumpite followers, cult members and protesters, you know, like badly cracked heads, broken bones, arrests, more shot by police etc. etc. They say the reason was that there is official orders from police forces nationwide to treat white protesters differently to black protesters!! Hmmm….having been in law enforcement for years ( I just retired last year) I have never seen anything in the rules and regulations, written, verbal or trained, to treat people of different colors differently in a state of riot or local breakdown of law and order. We never trained to just break black peoples bodies or shoot them but treat white rioters with kid gloves which is what the Congressional Black Caucus will obviously come out and say as they further do all they can to divide the races in this country. You know, following the directions of the real leader of what is happening today, estrogen laden Hussein Obama and his/ her partner, testosterone heavy Moochelle!! Divide and separate. Don’t ever let a good crisis go to waste. Create racial strife. Widen the chasm between all citizens. Create hatred and division.
Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D/RI) has openly called for the two republicans along with Ron Johnson (R-WI) to be expelled due to their vicious and dangerous actions in trying to delay the confirmation of Joe Biden’s victory despite the many credible evidences of fraud. How dare they have different views to the socialist democrats?? They must be punished.
Several large corporations have also come out, you know, the usual ones like Bank of America, Verizon, Marriott group, Blue Cross Blue Shield etc. and stated they will withdraw financial contributions to any Republican who contested the election room results!! I have posted Marriott Internationals tweet here to show the idiocy of these corporations. “Marriott International Inc. will suspend donations to Republican senators who voted against certifying President-elect Joe Biden, after considering the “destructive events” at the Capitol last week.”
Awesome. I for one will never stay in a Marriott branded hotel again and have cut up my membership card and I urge every true patriot to join in boycotting the Marriott hotel group. #BOYCOTTMARRIOTT.
Then we have Law students from Yale and Harvard, both dens of inequity and socialist leaning higher educational legal scholar facilities, calling for Hawley and Cruz ( both alumni ) to be disbarred!!! Really? For doing the constitutionally correct thing. For obeying and taking seriously their Oath of Office?? For daring to have a different point of view to the left??? Did these students work this out themselves or did their Commie professors tell them to? Who cares? Either way they are typical of many university students nationwide. Ignorant. Illiterate. Uneducated. Spoilt. Insignificant.
Then maybe worse and harder to read but not unexpected is that Sen Mitt Romney (R-UT), and Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb). (Both traitors, never Trumpers and RINOs) are calling for both senators to face a “censure resolution” in the House for their despicable actions. They are a joke but will be listened to by their leftist supporters and the MSM who are trying their best to divide and separate the two sides in this battle for the heart and soul of the GOP.
On ABC Monday Meghan McCain, you know her? The daughter of coward and traitor John McCain and a supposedly conservative show host, called for the arrests and prosecution of all those protesters that dared enter Congress last week and that they should be removed to Guantanamo Bay Detention Center in Cuba. You know, where extremist Muslim terrorists are held. She stated all of them should be treated as if they were Al Qaeda!! What a woman. Her piece of human excrement father would be so proud of her!! That was on top of her calling for President Trump to be impeached and/or removed any which way they can. She went as far as to say if Hussein Obama had done what Trump did, the bedlam we are seeing now would have been 100 times worse because of the color of his skin and the hatred for blacks by all the white privileged people in this country.
Believe me. The GOP is splintering in front of our eyes. We are learning who is a RINO, a traitor or a patriot. We see Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supporting Democrats in calls to remove Trump. Apparently he is done with Trump and furious!! Really??? Mitch, you Sir are a washed out sorry excuse for a Republican and your days as a representative of we the people will end soon. Your treachery and vile actions and words will not be forgotten. Apparently he has told fellow associates that impeachment will “get rid of Trump and his influences in the GOP!” WRONG SIR!! The GOP is Trumps party and it is you and your type whose influence will wane. But don’t worry. You have made enough money while trying to pretend you care about the people you represent and the Constitutional Republic you swore to protect!! You failed in both aspects.
As I end this slightly longer missive than normal let me assure all patriots. The Constitutional Republic we love will not disappear if we band together and fight the evil which is the swamp. Understand the depth and vile filth of the swamp. They are everywhere. They are in all positions. They are definitely in both main political parties. They must be sought out, removed and destroyed using the tools of law under the constitution of the United States of America!
If the left and their tame puppet media and Hollywood elitists think that by throwing us off Facebook and Twitter and other totally un-American and Socialist idealist organizations, that they will silence our voices or desires or even our love of country, then they are sadly mistaken.
The threats from Forbes magazine that no company or person should employ anyone with Trump associations is so wrong in so many ways. They say any that are employed would automatically be presumed liars and that organization would lose any credibility they may have had!! By the way, they say that was not a political statement!! What a joke. I say that if there is even a 1% chance of uniting any of the right to any of the left, then this one way hatred of all things conservative needs to end.
Then we have the story from a Washington Post columnist and MSNBC contributor Eugene Robinson. This one is amazing too. Apparently supporters of President Trump are members of a “cult” and will need to be de-programmed and then re-programmed!! (Hmmmm. Sounds like a long stay in a Russian style Gulag in Siberia are the recommended fix for us Trumpites!!). He actually couldn’t say how he suggested that happened but it somehow must for civilization to continue. He stated that the difference with the KKK and Trump supporters was that it was not just poor uneducated whites anymore!! However it needed to be done as it was needed for America to heal!!!
Then we have the massive witch hunt going on after the problems at the Capital the other day. The huge financial and corrupt resources being spent to take down peaceful protesters entering the people’s building and make criminals of them all, regardless to their role. Have their jobs and livelihoods ruined and removed as punishment for daring to support the best President ever! How dare we?? We need to be punished as the evil doers and racists that we are.
Then we have the Pervy Joe Biden, probably under instructions from his boss, estrogen heavy Barrack Hussein Obama, to introduce a Domestic Terrorism Bill that would “establish” a new Government Department ( because there is not a big enough federal government now) to monitor suspicious activity from White Nationalists and Neo Nazis!! This Bill will be apparently fast-lined by Biden after the 20th January. He says domestic conservative white terrorists need to be rooted out as much as International terrorist organizations.
I have to ask you here if anyone sees the irony of his and Senator Durbins Bill? I mean, let’s take a serious look at domestic terrorism in the year 2020!! I cannot find any credible real evidence of domestic terrorist attacks by conservative or even white groups. However—- there is a ton of evidence of the Domestic Terror attacks from the left!! I can think of two main Socialist and Anarchist style groups. ANTIFA and BLM. Both to me fit the description to a T of a domestic terrorist organization. They “protested” in a lot of large Democrat run hell hole cities with impunity. Police were told to let them be. Obama and Biden called them just peaceful lawful protests from a few groups who were just trying to get Social Justice for the underdogs!! Justice for the poor and downtrodden black people who were attacked mercilessly by cops just because they happened to be black!!! (The fact that under Trump, minorities had never had it so good as regards income, jobs, opportunities and progress escaped them apparently, maybe they didn’t get the memo.) They needed to make us aware of White privilege as it all needed to be erased from our psyche!! The fact that they shot and killed cops, attacked and tore down historic statues and defaced national monuments, that they attacked privately owned businesses, many owned by ethnic minorities, set fire to federal court houses and shot federal cops guarding those facilities. They set up semi autonomous zones which became totally lawless and were not not broken up on the instructions of feeble minded, corrupt and lunatic fringe Commie Mayors, cowardly disgusting police chiefs and their minions ( screw the oath —- what oath?) and Democrat Governors.
Apparently all that is totally acceptable to the left but support Trump!! You are insane. You need punishing. You need reprogramming. You need to never be employed again. You need to be bankrupted. You are not fit to live in their civilized world. ( I don’t want to!) You need to be ridiculed. Your words, verbal and written, must never be allowed to darken the corners of the new Socialist Republic and Utopia they envision.
We are supposed to trust the FBI, the CIA, the ATF and other alphabet type federal law enforcement groups etc. as well as this new federal investigative office to investigate white terrorists and white hate crimes.
When it comes to them let me tell you I do not trust them to do the right thing at all. They need to be disbanded and many need to be in prison. They have proven themselves time and time again to be agents of the swamp. They have lied. They have broken laws. They have committed treason. I could go on but you get the gist of where I am headed.
The left will learn to their chagrin that they cannot nor will they ever silence us. There are 75,000,000 of us at least. Many former military. Many former law enforcement. Some current members. None of us will break our Oaths that do not have an expiration date stamped on them. We will defend the constitution of the United States of America and protect it from all enemies foreign and domestic. I am not threatening unlawful actions. That is not who we are but I am saying we are awake and we are ready to defend this constitutional republic.
America will be reborn. It will recover from this set back. Communism in any form will not, nor should it ever, have a place in America. It may take the blood of a few patriots to water that tree of liberty and freedom but so be it.
