The year: 1881.
The month: May.
The place: DeSmet, SD.
That was the year of endless blizzards. The year the people of DeSmet nearly starved and froze to death. The year that train after train tried to reach DeSmet with desperately needed supplies, only to stall in snowdrifts so high and so hard that no amount of steam power could blast a path to the tiny town.
And so it was that all those supplies stayed neatly frozen in the stalled trains until the snow finally melted in May.
Sure, the people of DeSmet could've raised their fists to Heaven and railed against God but they didn't. In May of 1881, as they sat down to the first proper meal they'd enjoyed since Autumn (complete with butter!!!), on their lips was only gratitude. Pa Ingalls expressed it best when he said simply, “Lord, we thank Thee for all Thy bounty.” Laura observes, "That was all Pa said, but it seemed to say everything."
This year we too say from our hearts, “Lord, we thank Thee for all Thy bounty.”
Our Glorious Independence Day: "Every Man Jack of Us a Free and Independent Citizen of God’s Country"
When I was a little girl, my mother told me, "Lenora, always be grateful you're an American. There's no greater blessing."
Mom was right and no one expressed this more beautifully than pioneer Laura Ingalls Wilder in Little Town on the Prairie when she described DeSmet's 1882 Independence Day Celebration:
Electoral College Votes Result In Contested Election: Heroes and Traitors Both Revealed
As the chaplain blessed the treasonous casting of Michigan's Electoral College votes for Joe Biden "in Jesus' name," the air of my home office was blue. I was spittin', swearin' mad!
Then I realized that by affixing their John Hancocks to the official electoral vote certificates, despite President Trump's repeated warnings, they were signing their own fates as traitors. Tribunals may be in their future.
But even as the DNC traitors were publicly outing themselves, so were the GOP heroes.
In the states of Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and Arizona, the GOP Electoral College voters also showed up and also affixed their John Hancocks to the true Electoral votes for the true winner of the 2020 Presidential Election, "our duly elected and beloved President Donald J. Trump."
I was going to type, "So let's crunch the numbers" until I realized that's a nonsense phrase. Suffice it to say, the five states sending two sets of Electoral Votes to Washington D. C. equal a total of 69 electoral votes putting Donald Trump at 301 electoral votes but as we all know, it was much higher than that!
Ladies and Gentleman, we officially have a contested election but you won't find any headlines about it. The Mainstream Media doesn't want you to know about it. Well, phooey on their "narrative." Gimme truth every time. And the truth is that Joe Biden is not President-Elect. He wasn't yesterday, he isn't today, he never will be!
