Unprecedented Warning from Joint Chiefs of Staff to Trump: Biden Won, Don’t Invoke Insurrection Act

In an extraordinary letter made public late Tuesday, eight four-star generals announced that the United States armed forces stood against the “sedition and insurrection” demonstrated by the “actions inside the Capitol building” last week.

They called the protest “a direct assault on the U.S. Congress, the Capitol building, and our Constitutional Process.”

The generals also felt it appropriate to warn that, “Any act to disrupt the Constitutional process is not only against our traditions, values, and oath: it is against the law” and that “the U.S. military will obey lawful orders from civilian leadership. . .”

Finally, they announced that, “President-elect Biden will be inaugurated and will become our 46th Commander in Chief.”

This poorly written letter (see it below) has many scratching their heads: why, in the first time in the Republic’s history, did the Joint Chiefs of Staff find it necessary to weigh in on disputed election? Why the military’s unprecedented warning about “any act to disrupt the Constitutional process”? And why offer the conclusion that Biden “will be inaugurated” on January 20?

Some believe the generals did this for one reason: to prevent President Trump from invoking the Insurrection Act. Given the broad Presidential authority under that 1807 Act, there’s little doubt that many in the Deep State have been worried that Trump would use it to get to the bottom of the 2020 election fraud. But without military leadership to implement any such orders under the Act, the President’s powers are emasculated.

So who pushed the Joint Chiefs take such an unprecedented step? Is it really possible that General Milley came up with this all on his own and compelled the other joint chiefs to join with him? Highly unlikely. These signing generals all survived the Obama purges and have been confirmed to their positions by the corrupt U.S. Senate, the vast majority of whom are owned by the Deep State. None of them seem to care that the election was stolen.

May God save the Republic.

Genuine Wickedness Is Openly Manifesting in ‘Land of the Free’

Although it’s currently experiencing a full frontal attack, for decades the United States of America has been under covert, slow-motion assault by the revolutionary Left, a religious-political movement fundamentally at war with both Christianity and America.

From the sexual revolution and the “marriage-is-legalized-rape” radical feminists of the 1960s, to today’s open love affair with socialism, sexual anarchy, abortion, identity politics, radical environmentalism and “defunding the police,” the Left has relentlessly pursued its goal, as Barack Obama put it, of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

And although President Donald J. Trump fought mightily against this tide for four years, tirelessly pursuing a pro-life, pro-religious freedom, pro-Constitution, pro-America agenda, as of the end of 2020 the revolutionaries are clearly ascendent. . .

So now comes the big question: With such genuine wickedness openly manifesting in “the land of the free,” so much that it evokes the Apostle Paul’s admonitions about “powers and principalities” and “spiritual wickedness in high places,” what can good Americans do about the precarious state of their country? During this time of genuine tribulation and even persecution, how should moral, right-thinking Americans, who work hard, love their country, honor its history and obey its laws – and who don’t pretend there are dozens of new genders and that America is a despicable racist hellhole – now respond?

The U.S. Government is Hopelessly Corrupt

I went to war for the United States three times. I have always loved my country. I still do.

It is the U.S. government that I despise, which has deliberately and decisively separated itself from the American people.

In his 1993 book, “The Wish for Kings,” Lewis Lapham described the U.S. government as an oligarchy:

“that 2% of the population who own the media and the banks, manage the government, operate the universities, print the money, write the laws and, every four years, hire a President.”

Is there any doubt that the oligarchy hired the enfeebled Joe Biden to run for President and carry out its wishes because Donald Trump would not?

That was the essence of the 2020 election and an explanation for the last four years of political turmoil in which the oligarchy illegitimately tried to remove Trump from the Presidency.

But it is now far worse than that.

In the past decades, the oligarchy was manipulating government simply to maximize its profits, as Lapham wrote:

“The politicians dress up the deals in the language of law or policy, but they’re in the business of brokering the tax revenue, and what keeps them in office is not their talent for oratory but their skill at redistributing the national income in a way that rewards their clients, patrons, friends and campaign contributors.”

Today, in addition to maximizing profits, the oligarchy wants to control what you read, what you think and what you are permitted to express.

There is an unholy and dangerous alliance combining the media and Big Tech with the national security state, that is, the intelligence services, the military-industrial complex and law enforcement.

It is, quite literally, an effort to abrogate the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and eliminate free speech.

The United States government has gone beyond authoritarianism towards the Chinese Communist Party model of state capitalism and totalitarianism.

And what better candidate to carry that model forward than Joe Biden, who is already compromised by his close connections with the Chinese government?

Make no mistake, Donald Trump won the 2020 Presidential election. It was stolen, not only from him, but, more importantly, it was stolen from the American people by the well-organized and well-financed application of massive electoral fraud.

A detailed description of the election fraud was published by Dr. Peter Navarro.

Most of what the media are reporting about the election and the events following it, such as the so-called “assault” on the Capitol building, are lies combined with Big Tech censorship and psychological operations conducted by those with connections to the national security state.

Media disinformation and Big Tech censorship are extensions of and an attempt to solidify the fraudulent 2020 election, which was not simply a contest between the Democrat and Republican ideologies, but a battle between the entrenched power of the bipartisan political establishment versus the freedom and well-being of the American people

Contrary to the claims of the discredited media, there was never a cult of personality.

Donald Trump was an instrument by which the American people might wrest control of their own government from the vicelike grip of the oligarchy.

The oligarchy hates, not just Trump, but hates and fears the American people, who represent an obstacle to the oligarchy’s use of government as a lever to obtain personal power and profit.

It is a fundamental principle of democracy that the efficiency and effectiveness of government are directly dependent upon the trustworthiness of government officials as representatives and executors of the views and desires of the people.

Americans now believe that we are not citizens of a republic, but subjects of a fraudulently-elected aristocracy, composed of a self-absorbed permanent political class, which serves the interests of international financiers at the expense of the American people

Although we have elections in the United States, we no longer have representative government.

As an American patriot, it is painful for me to admit it because I have always considered the United States as history’s greatest democratic republic, but my country’s government is hopelessly corrupt.

The U.S. government must be stripped bare and rebuilt from the ground up according to the U.S. constitution as it was written, not how it has been interpreted by the self-centered incompetents, cowards, profiteers and deranged, but otherwise unemployable ideologues, all of whom currently populate the government’s executive, judicial and legislative branches.

Three years before the start of the American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln said a government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free — that a house divided against itself cannot stand.

Likewise, a government separated from the people cannot stand.

He may be inaugurated, but Joe Biden will never, under any circumstances, be considered a legitimate President.

Assassinating Democracy

I was in the Dallas airport on November 22, and I decided to go downtown and walk the scene, again, of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.

I’ve been there several times before, acquainting myself with the geography and the geometry of the accursed crime scene. During the depths of the Pandemic lockdown, traffic was so light that it was safe to walk into the street and stand on the two X marks, looking back toward the 6th floor window of the Texas Book Depository, and then ahead toward the grassy knoll.

I paced the grassy knoll itself, now mostly paved for parking, but retaining the same fenceline that rimmed it in 1963. There are obstructions to the view of the two X marks in the street, so it’s not difficult to estimate where a shooter would have needed to stand to get off a clear shot at the president, to make his head snap back toward the rear of the car.

But that was always during hot weather. I wanted to go back in late November, after trees had dropped their leaves, when there was some bite in the air.

I missed an anniversary ceremony by a few hours. It was a small turnout, and somebody blew Taps on a bugle, according to a chatty visitor from Delaware. He comes to the decennial observances, and to a few off-year gatherings. He said nearly 10,000 people showed up for the 30-year anniversary in 1993, the year after the JFK movie came out.

It’s hard to imagine an America in which most people don’t care about the JFK assassination anymore, but no imagination is required. Just look around. We have been outwaited.

Kennedy was almost certainly a victim of the Deep State. The FBI botched the investigation so badly, it could not have been accidental. Assassin Lee Harvey Oswald left a note at the FBI office in Dallas for an agent he knew. The Bureau not only destroyed the note, but expunged the FBI agent’s name from Oswald’s address book before turning a sanitized “transcript” over to the presidential “Warren” Commission.

This was consistent with the Bureau’s marching orders from the Department of Justice, composed just hours after Oswald was gunned down in police custody. Deputy Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach proposed a clean bill of health from the FBI in a memo he sent to Peace Corps Deputy Director Bill Moyers (yes, that Bill Moyers) almost before the corpses were cold. Attorney General Bobby Kennedy had apparently lost control of his department, as his subordinates were already acting with great autonomy.

“The public must be satisfied,” Katzenbach wrote Moyers, “that Oswald was the assassin; that he did not have confederates who are still at large; and that the evidence was such that he would have been convicted at trial.” Check. Katzenbach was also the first to propose a blue-ribbon presidential commission to investigate and report its findings on the assassination.

Declassified documents establish that the CIA directed its officers to withhold active cooperation from the Warren Commission. The Commission never learned, for example, of the CIA’s previous contacts with Oswald.

The Commission’s own chairman, Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl Warren, forbade the questioning of witnesses in Mexico who knew Oswald.

The FBI had an informant, future president Gerald Ford, on the inside. Ford kept the FBI apprised of the Commission’s internal deliberations, and identified two fellow Commissioners who doubted that the kill shot was fired from the Texas Book Depository.

Warren denied fellow commissioners access to photographs from the president’s autopsy, based on his opinion that they were too disturbing. This is especially troubling because Secret Service ruffians menaced Dallas medical examiner Earl Rose when he insisted, in accordance with Texas law, on conducting an autopsy on the president’s body. There was, therefore, no independent autopsy, and the federal government’s autopsy was never subjected to Warren Commission scrutiny.

Kennedy’s body was flown back east to a Maryland suburb of Washington DC where Navy clinical pathologists with no background in forensic pathology conducted the best autopsy they knew how. They did not even shave the areas around the bullet holes. There’s no reason to suspect them of a cover-up, but there’s abundant suspicion that the Deep State orchestrated a crude and inconclusive autopsy by neophytes.

The CIA’s official in-house historian has conceded that the Agency managed the flow of evidence to guide the Warren Commission to its single-shooter conclusion. Not only did Oswald act alone and unconnected to any conspirators, then, but so did Jack Ruby, who killed Oswald in police custody, two days after the Kennedy assassination.

Nobody hectored us to “trust the science,” but it was implicit as the Warren Commission marshalled authoritative scientific opinion to convince us we didn’t see what we thought we saw. Any country boy who’s shot a tin can off a fence post, of course, is doubtful that a shooter on the sixth floor of a building behind and slightly uphill from the president could shoot him on a trajectory that snaps his head backward.

The Deep State gaslighting machine went into overdrive, ridiculing skeptics as “conspiracy theorists,” and producing experts to tell us Kennedy’s head snapped backward due to a nerve response or, in the alternative, that it actually snapped forward before it ricocheted backward.

The Navy pathologists reported a hole in the side of the president’s head about four times as large as the Dallas emergency room surgeons reported. The large hole would indicate a shot from behind, from the Texas Book Depository. The smaller hole would be consistent with an entry wound from a shot fired from the grassy knoll. Evidence of entry wounds, the condition of a recovered bullet and theorized exit paths with no discernable physical traces didn’t add up.

It was necessary to the Commission’s lone-gunman theory that there be only three shots. Oswald’s rifle could not fire four shots quickly enough to fit the elapsed time. And so three shots it was. Here were solemn men of high reputation looking us in the eye, speaking outlandish ballistic theories and fudged pathology with straight faces.

The Cult of the Expert is so powerful in America, whether it’s Dr. Spock, Dr. Kinsey or Dr. Fauci, that otherwise intelligent people can be persuaded to doubt their own clear observations. Aristotle described the persuasive technique as “ethos,” an appeal to prestige and affiliation rather than logic.

But the Zapruder film was powerful, too. We weren’t allowed to see it in its entirety until 1975, but it convinced most of us that the kill shot to JFK’s head came from the front and right, not from behind.

The JFK assassination was the first time it occurred to me, at age nine, that we might not be allowed to have a president we voted for. Democracy was on a winning streak at mid-century. I had never thought about the ways that domestic enemies, people who look and sound like us, might deprive us of self-government, overturning election results even among the Greatest Generation.

Kennedy made a lot of enemies, and there was no shortage of people in and out of the government who wished him ill. Whatever the merits of their grievances against him, their contempt for the Greatest Generation’s right to govern itself was unwarranted.

This was a generation that had rescued democracy from fascists and murderous ethnic fanatics, at great sacrifice. It had confronted militant Communism. It had empowered and facilitated decolonization and self-rule in Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. The Greatest Generation did not deserve to have its own democratic choices overruled.

A large fraction of Democrats were inconsolable. The next generation of presidential politics could be described as an ongoing tantrum against every man not named Kennedy who had the nerve to occupy the White House: Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter felt the wrath and the treachery of Kennedy Democrats, including some who became Neocon Republicans. But they died off, and the Deep State has absorbed their spawn into the system.

It’s disputable whether our own generation deserves self-government. We have a mixed record. But I think most of us Baby Boomers agree that our children and grandchildren deserve to receive what the Greatest Generation intended for them. And so our country and our sovereignty are worth fighting for.

Once again, permanent elites have substituted their judgment for ours. For our own good, they reason, we can’t be allowed to elect the president we voted for. News interns all across the social and mainstream media, including no-name “fact checkers,” assure us that Trump’s claims of election fraud are “baseless.”

But we know what we saw. Republican poll-watchers were prevented from observing the ballots up close in Michigan and Pennsylvania. In Michigan, some were shut out of the state’s main vote-count building altogether. Postal supervisors directed employees to backdate mailed-in ballots in Wisconsin. Judges interfered without Constitutional authority to loosen the rules and deadlines regarding mail-in votes. Pennsylvania’s ballot rejection rates for those mailed-in ballots dropped by 97% after election officials adjusted signature verification software below factory settings. Anomalous 97% and 100% Biden batches showed up after ballot counting was interrupted in multiple states overnight.

The pattern in the critical swing states was that Trump built leads in each of them until voting was interrupted, poll-watchers were dismissed or obstructed, and new ballots arrived to vault Biden into insurmountable leads. There’s nothing inherently corrupt about a comeback win, of course, and everybody expected Democrats to do better than Republicans in mail-in votes. But despite the highest total vote in presidential election history, oddly, Biden had no down-ticket coat tails. Republicans held the Senate until last week, and almost flipped the House. That would suggest that Biden’s good fortune after the resumption of counting was not the result of a surge of Democrat mail-in votes. These overnight votes were uniquely devoted to Biden, not to other Democrats. Do the vote-counting software vendors charge extra for coat tails?

The problem for most Americans is not a lack of evidence, but a monotonous overabundance of it. There is so much evidence of election fraud in the six decisive “swing” states, involving so many state and local officials we used to respect, we despair of ever digesting it. To confront such pervasive corruption and negligence will require stamina, courage and thick skin, and we’re not sure we’re up to it. The straight-faced denials in the mainstream media are intended to grant us permission to pretend the election was not stolen. Like a skillful novelist, they invite the willing suspension of disbelief.

Jesus said the truth will set us free. What, then, will a lie do? It must necessarily make us unfree. It must enslave us. This is the unspoken proposition that underlies the elites’ call to acquiesce in this stolen election, this lie: come along, and bring your children. Freedom is overrated. At least the conflict will be over, the headlines will be light and cheery. Smiles will return to television’s talking heads as they chat about presidential pets and celebrity weddings. Don’t worry your pretty little heads about the mountains of ugly evidence; just let us experts handle it.

But you can handle the truth, all of it. It is well summarized in the 36-page Navarro Report, which is the Zapruder film of the stolen 2020 presidential election. Navarro addressed six dimensions of fraud in six battleground states: Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Arizona, Michigan and Nevada. Its unfortunate title is “The Immaculate Deception.”

The Immaculate Deception Re… by Danny Chaitin

He later posted a video version on Vimeo to avoid Youtube censorship and to bypass Google algorithm warfare:

Immaculate Deception — The Navarro Report 12.16.20 from Navarro Report on Vimeo.

Just this past week, Navarro published a 32-page second volume about the stolen election in the past tense, as a fait accompli, entitled “The Art of the Steal.” If the original volume was a call to action, this one is an autopsy. Farewell, democracy, at least on the national level. See you later, one can only hope.

The Art of the Steal 1.5.21… by Danny Chaitin

I feel inconsolable again. Will I ever get over this assassination of our democracy? I hope not, because that will be a sure sign that I have pierced my ear with an awl, that I was born free but have made peace with slavery. May it never be so.

How Elites Are Leveraging COVID to ‘Reset’ the World

Looking back at 2020, it’s undeniable that this has been one of the strangest years in American history – from January’s sham presidential impeachment, to the coronavirus pandemic and economy-destroying national lockdown, to widespread hysterical demands to “defund the police” while Marxist mobs burned and looted American cities, to Big Tech scandalously suppressing journalism it doesn’t like, to Big Media openly siding with the senile and corrupt Joe Biden while portraying President Donald Trump as a mentally ill, racist would-be dictator, to November’s breathtakingly rigged election – likely the most crooked and corrupt in our history.

In between these wall-to-wall crises, blue-state mayors and governors still found time to close churches while keeping strip clubs open, destroy as many small businesses as possible while encouraging rioting, and threaten law-abiding citizens with arrest and imprisonment for having too many people in their home for Thanksgiving or Christmas. . .

What we cryptically call “the left” is, of course, always trying to “reset,” “reform” or “transform” the world, as it is a fundamentally revolutionary worldview. Barack Obama, just prior to being elected president in 2008, famously said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Today, Joe Biden likewise insists he wants to “transform” America. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, breathlessly anticipating the upcoming Georgia runoff races that will determine control of the U.S. Senate, announced with a flourish: “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America!” . . .

The first and most pivotal phase of the Great Reset plan under cover of COVID is, of course, winning the 2020 presidential election through a dizzyingly multifaceted attack on the integrity of the U.S. election system itself, on top of a unified campaign by Big Media and Big Tech to elect Joe Biden at all costs. . .

Indeed, right now, the elite class in America and around the world is planning – in fact, openly bragging about – the “Great Reset,” whereby they intend to leverage the COVID era’s widespread public fears and government’s rampant emergency powers to “reset” the world’s economic, social and governmental systems to institute a “more just” global socialist utopia – run by them.

President Trump Versus Saul Alinsky

The latest example of [Saul Alinsky] brazenness comes in the wake of the totally corrupt and fraudulent 2020 Presidential “Election,” in which President Trump clearly dominated until the wee hours of the morning after. Suddenly, leftists realized they needed to shutter the doors and windows, while massively shifting the vote counts with boxes of fake ballots, manipulated software in “counting” machines, and every other form of fraud and treachery imaginable. Then a miracle happened. Insurmountable Trump majorities in all key swing states simultaneously mutated into razor thin margins, for the Democrats of course.

America didn’t buy any of it. Americans all saw the glaring patterns of cheating and manipulation. And every honest citizen recognizes the crucial importance of unmasking and reversing the fraud, if elections are ever again to mean anything, which will determine if America itself is ever again going to mean anything. Thus far, patriotic Americans have received transparent and worthless deflections from the left, along with nauseating platitudes of acquiescence from too many claiming to be on the “right.”

Like clockwork, leftist subversives who did everything they could over the past four years to attack President Trump and America itself (as another avenue to undermining him), now drip with a poisoned pretense of “virtue,” as they demand that we drop in line behind them, and unify, “for the good of the country” of course. And to nobody’s great surprise, here comes that revolting cadre of cowardly RINO sycophants, agreeing with the left and groveling before them with the exuberance of lackeys who have no moral compass, and no dignity.

[But President Trump] steadfastly refuses to make any concession whatsoever to accommodate the left, despite enormous pressure from across the political landscape. He knows that cowardice and moral bankruptcy ultimately come from the same political mindset, no matter in which party its practitioners claim to reside. Had he conceded to these people, they would all have had the absolute best excuse to ignore the rampant Election Day fraud and criminality. Had President Trump caved and followed what those lesser political players deemed the more “honorable” course, he would have given them all “cover” for the treasonous actions in which they engaged.

This is how the vile strategy of Saul Alinsky and the American left operates. It builds its case on totally bogus premises, presented as the pinnacle of “virtue” and “worthiness.” This facade of presumed merit is bolstered by both the absolute moral bankruptcy of its leftist advocacy, as well as the thorough moral cowardice of those on the right who should be standing against it, but who put their own interests ahead of anything else, including their Country.

Joe Biden Has No Path to Victory

There is no path for a true Joe Biden victory. The reason has nothing to do with anyone who does not want him as president. But rather, has everything to do with decisions by Joe Biden and his supporters and their actions. Here is a list of some of the most obvious:

• The decision to run Joe Biden was itself a problem. For the entire campaign Joe Biden and others have affirmed that he might not last through a four-year term. We certainly saw a number of very concerning indicators during the few times Biden made public appearances.

• Choosing to run only against Trump, or more accurately a narrative of Trump that Biden and his associates have greatly influenced with their four years of never-ending politically-motivated attacks and efforts to remove the president from office.

• Choosing to run a non-campaign campaign, making it impossible for the American people to ask questions and know who Joe Biden is and what he might do as president. What a Biden presidency would look like is truly a question of who actually controls him. Will it be the far left or will it be more moderate Democrats? Nobody seems at all sure, likely even Joe Biden himself; it is just speculation even now.

• Refusing to answer important questions, like court packing.

• Answering the same question differently, depending on who he was speaking to, like fracking and tax increases.

• Being pampered and protected by most of the “press.”

• Big tech blocking information from voters.

• The push for mail-in ballots.

• The over-the-top state shutdowns, mostly by Democrat governors.

• The Democratic Party lawsuits to loosen up election laws.

• The overall Democratic Party opposition to voting laws that give greater confidence.

• The bias of the polling companies.

• The refusal to come clean on the millions of dollars that flowed into the Biden family from foreign entities for seemingly nothing of value … except Joe Biden’s influence in U.S. Policy.

• Joe Biden claiming he never had anything to do with his son Hunter’s foreign business deals when there is plenty of indisputable evidence to the contrary.

• Joe Biden using the cover of the media and others to claim his son Hunter’s laptop was from Russia, when he had to have known it was his son’s laptop.

All of the above, which is but a partial list, are decisions and actions that were by Joe Biden or people who helped his effort to win. And that list along with the four years of vicious efforts to undo an election is why the “election irregularities” this year so easily create suspicion of fraud at a level that could impact the outcome of the elections. Even the most mind-blowing claims of fraud by design in election machines with foreign influence, that in normal times would be almost entirely viewed as a fabricated conspiracy theory, has become believable to far beyond a small fringe portion of our nation.

So even if those pulling every stunt they can to get Joe Biden across the line mange to do so, Joe Biden is so damaged that he will never have any legitimacy. None. Zero. Biden has no mandate for anything because he did not campaign on anything, except getting across that line. Wisdom can put no hope in anything Joe Biden says, or that of anyone who helped design and carryout the Biden for President deceitful campaign strategy. Joe Biden’s word is truly meaningless and Joe Biden did that to himself. He has nobody to blame but himself.


In the public arena, I served two terms in the state senate (2003-2006) of my home state of Vermont. I have published regular and occasional columns promoting limited-constitutional-government and free-market perspectives in print and online media since 2001. My major public arena focus since serving in public office has been to help move education from the state monopoly model to a free-market model, where parents can find an education model that matches well with their children and their worldview and protecting against the dangers of the state being in a position to control the thinking of a generation.

Grover Cleveland Knew How Thanksgiving Could Lift Up A Hurting Nation

. . .[W]hile there are several past presidential Thanksgiving proclamations worth revisiting as 2020 comes to a merciful close, President Grover Cleveland’s 1888 proclamation is especially fitting to our present moment. A man of notoriously unimpeachable character and son of a Presbyterian minister, Cleveland’s Thanksgiving proclamations grasp the proper tenor of the holiday and are notable for a couple of “firsts.” . . .

To start, his statement poignantly acknowledges God’s hand in guiding the nation and reinforces the need for Americans to be faithful. Cleveland trusts that the American people will take the national day of Thanksgiving to refrain from work, and, instead, dedicate the holiday to offering sincere, heartfelt thanks for their many blessings.

Most notably, at the conclusion of his 1888 Thanksgiving proclamation, Cleveland mentions an “afflictive dispensation” that has stricken a portion of the nation, beseeching Americans to “acknowledge His mercy in setting bounds to the deadly march of pestilence,” and to “be chastened by sympathy with our fellow-countrymen who have suffered and who mourn.”

Americans living in the late 1880s weren’t battling the novel coronavirus, but they were suffering from continued outbreaks of cholera, smallpox, tuberculosis, typhoid, and yellow fever. So Cleveland took time in his 1888 Thanksgiving proclamation to reflect on both the tremendous gift that is life on this earth, as well as its fragile nature.

By calling on Americans to cherish life and to express sympathy and grieve with those who have lost loved ones to disease or illness, Cleveland was asking the men and women of the nation to follow through on two central precepts of Christian doctrine: to love God with all your heart, soul and mind, and to love your neighbor as yourself.

Why We Chose 1620 as the Year of ‘Our True Founding,’ Not 1619

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival at Plymouth, Massachusetts, in 1620, an event which President John Quincy Adams described as the “birthday” of our nation. You might expect this seminal moment in world history to be commemorated with great fanfare. But don’t get your hopes up. . .

“There appear to be few commemorations, parades, or festivals to celebrate the Pilgrims this year, perhaps in part because revisionist charlatans of the radical left have lately claimed the previous year as America’s true founding,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said last week in a speech honoring the Pilgrims’ 400 anniversary.

The “revisionist charlatans” he was referring to are the authors of the New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which commemorates the year that the first ship arrived in the Virginia colony carrying African slaves. Recognizing the significance of the 400th anniversary of the beginning of American slavery is certainly worthwhile, but the 1619 Project’s authors went beyond recognition and sought to “reframe” all of American history around the events of 1619. For this, they have been roundly criticized by historians who decry their many inaccuracies and revisionist interpretations (including, for example, their claim that the American Revolution was fought in order to preserve slavery in the colonies).

Most of the criticism has focused on the Project’s controversial claim (which was later scrubbed from the New York Times’ website) that 1619 is the year of “our true founding,” not 1620 when the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth and planted the seed of our democracy that ripened in 1776.

In a Times op-ed rebutting the critics, Nicholas Guyatt argues that “the 1619 Project radically challenges a core narrative of American history” by refuting the notion that “the story of the United States [is] a gradual unfolding of freedom.” Instead, the Project’s authors “describe a nation in which racism is persistent and protean. White supremacy shapeshifts through the nation’s history, finding new forms to continue the work of subjugation and exclusion.”

Is America Doomed to Split Apart?

Is anyone else too old to start living on his knees? See, submission is not in the cards. The question is whether preserving our freedom means dissolving the Union. And though our alleged betters tell us we are not allowed to think about that horrible prospect, it’s the ruling caste itself that raised the question.

When you get a vile clown like Chuck Schumer promising to “change America” if he steals another Georgia election in the coming run-off, it only reaffirms that we don’t want to “change America” – at least not into the Venezuela-lite he and his coterie of neo-Marxist bother-wedders, fake Indians, and buck-tooth morons want. We’re not living in a dictatorship of the mediocre-tariat, or of anyone else, period. That’s non-negotiable. Nor does any alleged conservative principle of the kind pushed by supine gimps of the Mitt n’ French variety bind us to do so.

And yet there’s a huge chunk of America seemingly determined to suppress, disenfranchise, and even harm us. Save your gaslighting, hacks, I’m on Twitter, and every day I see people threatening us with, on the mild end, “reeducation” to “truth and reconciliation commissions” to outright murder. . .

Could a Split happen? In some ways it is happening already. In the last month two Californians I know have announced a move to Idaho. Don’t think that California is exporting only liberals – these are conservatives. There is, to some extent, a great sorting going on. Patriots are leaving big blue cities – and the House redistricting is showing that. But that means the blue enclaves are even bluer and therefore even more malignant. Don’t underestimate the lack of wisdom of these people – they are quite dumb and their own boundless incompetence, greed, and unaccountably high self-regard mean that they are absolutely capable of taking the kind of stupid and evil actions that could lead to the country tearing itself apart. Think about what they would spark if they banned guns, of banned fracking and caused millions to become impoverished for the pleasure of Marin County weather pagans, or even if they banned religious teachings they disapprove of. Think that’s crazy? Think the vicious people who sue nuns an celebrate killing babies have some sort of boundary they aren’t willing to cross?
