"In his first order of the new year to the country’s armed forces, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed the need for 'full-time combat readiness',” writes Liu Zhen for the South China Morning Post, "...the PLA must be ready to 'act at any second'."
And a Happy New Year to you too!
Now I know we Americans can beat the free world at anything from war to tiddlywinks (Meet John Doe) but we'd rather not have to prove it. Y'know what I mean? Americans are a lovely peace-loving people with a Great Peacemaker for a President. But we're also a nation who cherishes the Second Amendment, loves their firearms, knows how to use them but hope they never have to.
And the Chinese? Well they're a lovely people too. Yeah! That's right! The Moms and Pops of every nation are wonderful people. Every travel show, like my favorite No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain, proves that over and over again.
It's the governments of so many nations and the tiny percentage of radicals that are the problem. Never the people themselves.
That's the case with China and heck! It was the case with us as well 'til we started draining that damn Swamp!
"Once in Royal David's city..."
As the pure, crystalline voice of one boy soprano rings out from King's College in Cambridge, England singing the traditional opening carol of The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, for millions listening live on the radio worldwide, Christmas has truly begun.
The Festival grew out of a need to bind up the wounds of World War I and has continued every year from 1918 unstopped by war, unrest or even a plandemic. They say that during World War II, listeners to the Festival could hear the tar paper flapping in the wind as the ancient stained glass of the Chapel had been removed for safety during the Blitz.
This year is no different. The Festival continues sans live audience while its Nine Lessons ring as true this year as they have for the past 102 years.
The Festival begins with these beautiful words:
If you listen very closely, you'll hear President Trump's voice shaking with emotion in this video.
Can you feel it? Fatigue. While many patriots are still gun-ho, many are plumb bone weary. After the surge of enthusiastic patriotism on Election Day followed by the gut punch of massive fraud on 11/4 and the stiff-upper-lip rallying-yet-afraid-to-hope-too-much during the month of November, many patriots are exhausted from the emotional roller-coaster.
Exhausted and impatient. "C'mon! Let's do this already," is a tweet I often see. "Isn't the storm upon us yet!?! I'm sick of stashing away canned goods and bottled water."
Don't get me wrong: We all still support President Trump 150% but headlines come, headlines go. Tweets come, tweets go. Hopes are raised only to be dashed. Trump's inner circle swirls, sometimes supporting him, sometimes seeming to stab him in the back. Promises of "booms coming" fleet by while the the Swamp still appears to be footloose, fancy free and powerful, running thither and yon, passing bills, giving interviews, threatening lawsuits and ignoring subpoenas. It's maddening!
Through it all, the horrible, gnawing mystery hangs over the nation: Will Trump remain in the Presidency for four more years as the People want?
We know he won the election in a landslide. We know the Left blatantly cheated their a$$e$ off. We know he'll never quit until the Will of the People is carried out. We know he's going to have to win the election all over again via the Electoral College, the Supreme Court and/or the Military. It's the not knowing what will ultimately happen that is gnawing at us.
How can we keep our spirits high and our prayers winging Heavenward when our souls are so tired?
I suggest we take a leaf from the Left's book. After all, they've been fighting Trump for over four years and they're not tired of losing yet! C'mon! We can't let Them have more sticktoitiveness than us!
