Before every historic moment of Human Greatness, first there comes a "Hells No" moment. A Hero stands up and says, "ENOUGH!" drawing a line in the sand.
When Battle of the Bulge hero, General McAuliffe, responded to a Nazi surrender demand with one word, "Nuts!" that was a line in the sand.
When Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the Church door in Wittenberg, German and told the Diet of Worms, "Here I stand. I can do no other," that was a line in the sand.
When William Tyndale stood lashed to the stake at which he would be burned for translating the Bible into English, he said, "Lord, open the King of England's eyes." That was a line in the sand.
When Jean Luc Picard said, "We've made too many compromises already. Too many retreats...They assimilate entire worlds and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here. This far! No farther!" that was a line in the sci-fi sand.
When Captain John Paul Jones shouted, "I have not yet begun to fight!" that was a line in the sand. (And don't you dare cancel my culture by calling his quote "apocryphal"!)
And last night when President Trump said, "This country...belongs to you, the American people. This is your home. This nation is your heritage. And our magnificent American Liberty is your God Given Right. The people of this land will not be ruled and talked down to by corrupt politicians, petty tyrants, left-wing bullies or socialist bureaucrats in a place called Washington, D. C. It's not gonna happen"...that was a magnificent line in the sand.
They say that sex sells. Pffffttttt. It's fear that sells and some people (and patriots!) seem to thrive on it. They collect danger. Savor it. Bask in it. Enjoy foisting danger and fear on others.
Well, that's not what AMERICA: The Blog is about and there's a good reason for that. Read on, Patriots!
MailChimp Suspends Patriot Writer.
I'll give you five guesses which Patriot Writer they suspended.
First GoFundMe came for little ol' me, then MailChimp came for little ol' me. Isn't that just da $hit!?!
I'd heard of MailChimp suspending only one other account: Virginia Citizens Defense League but they're big! They're well known! I never actually expected them to come after AMERICA: The Blog. Should I take it as a backhanded compliment!?!
If I don't seem too upset, Patriots, that's because I'm not. (Well...a little.) But I'm trying to count my blessings. You see, this attack on Free Speech couldn't have come at a better time.
[UPDATE: Sidney Powell was also deplatformed by MailChimp this week so I feel in very good company! https://www.rawstory.com/sidney-powell-mailchimp/]
He didn't merely become our President. He became our father, our grandfather, our model of patriotism. When Donald Trump first announced his candidacy, we felt curioisity which soon turned to admiration, then love. As my husband says, "Reagan was liked, but Trump is loved."
Looking back on the past six years since President Trump burst into our lives first as a candidate, then as President and now as our President-in-Exile, he's taught us so much about how to be a patriot, how to handle liars and adversity and how to do it all with grace, strength and humor.
Even as we celebrate President Trump's 75th birthday, let's thank him not only for his service to our beloved Country but for modeling so many invaluable lessons in Living and in Patriotism.
Don't You Cancel My Culture!
Cancel Culture: A particularly loathsome new term in the exceptionally loathsome "New Normal."
I hate everything about Cancel Culture. But it was my husband, Michael, who helped me see the humorous side of Cancel Culture a few weeks ago. Let me set the stage for you.
Michael, as usual, was hinting, cajoling and wheedling me into deep frying his beloved French Fries.
And, as usual, every time he said "French Fries" I could hear his left ventricle slamming shut.
"Michael Honey," I said sweetly, "We don't deep fry. We air fry."
Without missing a beat Michael snapped back, "DON'T YOU CANCEL MY CULTURE!!!"
Just like that, I was ROTFLMAO!
But in five pithy words, he nailed how we all feel.
I like my culture. I like history as I learned it as a child. I like science as I understand it. I like America as I cherish her. I like my race. I like our culture. I like our cuisine. I like our language. I like our literature. I like Classical music. I like our architecture. I love President Trump and our Constitution. I like, oh! Just everything we've been shamed, gaslighted and brainwashed to reject, disbelieve and apologize for.
Well, screw dat!
I'm not having some atheistic faux intellectual Liberal nut job destroy Life as I know and like it with their New Version of "Truth" that Cancels my Culture. Two weeks later, like Fauci, they'll change it again anyways.
I'm with Michael: "DON'T YOU CANCEL MY CULTURE!"
This is my rant.
President Trump Speaks! "...With the help of Righteous American Patriots...our movement...is just getting started."
One of the most unforgettable moments in American politics was the indescribable expression on our President's face as he descended the golden escalator after clinching the Presidency in 2016. It was the expression of a man who was deeply moved, almost to the point of tears.
Yesterday, America, we saw that expression again as our beloved President-in-Exile took the stage to address the North Carolina GOP Convention. Over 1.8+ million Americans watched via Right Side Broacasting and when President Trump stepped onto the stage...wow!!! The Live Chat went crazy! Everyone was posting hearts, flags, tears and even goosebumps faster than anyone can read. The love for him was palpable. The patriotism unsurpassed.
And what a speech he gave! Our President went off teleprompter (as usual!) almost immediately and ad libbed off-and-on for ninety minutes.
COUP D'ETAT! Democrats Pulled off a Bloodless Coup and Are Now Projecting Their Coup onto Patriots
You and I have heard the word "coup" hundreds of times yet we never imagined it could happen here in America...a coup pulled off so subtly the word "coup" barely came to mind!
Maybe I'm slow on the uptake but it didn't quite hit me until last week that what Joe and his ilk did was a bona fide, honest, forthright, upright, downright coup d'etat!
Just because the military wasn't involved, doesn't mean it wasn't a coup.
Just because a General drunk on power didn't install himself in the White House, doesn't mean it wasn't a coup.
Just because it was (almost) bloodless, doesn't mean it wasn't a coup.
We've been calling it "voter fraud" but that's a euphemism. It sanitizes and downplays what really happened: A proper coup d'etat.
Instead of a power-hungry general, they installed a wobbly old man. Instead of the military backing him, there were thousands of Soccer Moms and Softball Dads quietly committing treason as Election Judges.
We didn't think it could happen because Americans are a genteel, peaceful, civilized people. And so the coup was genteel, peaceful and civilized. It was conducted intellectually with thousands of bits of paper erroneously called "valid ballots."
And now they have the bloody gall to Project their coup onto General Flynn and the Patriots in DC on January 6th.
Is there anything these people won't stoop to?
Sorry, my bad. Stupid question. There's nothing they won't stoop to!
"Girl, I've been in the shower for four hours. I can't leave. It's like I'm bleeding out. Huge clots!"
It's not often you get a message from a friend like that and I'll never forget it. My friend we'll call Barb sent me that chilling message in March of 2020. Back then, no one was talking about the effects Covid-19 might have on menstruation and, although Barb was never tested, she knows it was the Covid-19 causing her menstrual distress, because she'd never had a menstrual cycle like it before...and her husband fell terribly ill at the same time.
For over a year, I've wanted to share Barb's story but the topic has come to the fore again as women who've merely been exposed to shedding "vaxxed" people began talking about bleeding out with massive menstrual clots, just as Barb experienced. That's when something clicked in my head. "Now," something told me. "Write about it now."
Ladies, keep reading!
