Trump Pulling Off the Impossible Again

By: Lloyd Marcus

While in the paint section at Home Depot, a young couple next to me wore masks. A thought popped into my head, “Am I nuts for not wearing a mask?” “Stop it. Get a grip, Lloyd.” When many are responding in fear and panic, it can be a challenge not to succumb.

Governors are allowing people to shop at liquor stores, Walmart, Home Depot, fabric stores, and more while banning people from listening to sermons in their cars in church parking lots. And yet, an elderly Christian minister friend is scolding Christians for rebelling against the repeal of their religious liberty. He also believes everyone should wear masks and gloves.

I am a pioneer of the Tea Party movement. Even patriots whom I fought side-by-side with are so filled with fear that they are willing to surrender their constitutional freedoms over to Democrat dictator governors.

A friend said his 40-something-year-old son caught coronavirus and wrote funeral instructions. His son made a full recovery in four days.

I am excited to announce that more and more people are finally realizing fake news media and health experts bludgeoning us with their lie that corona is the deadliest virus of all times is politically motivated.

In the past, viruses have come and gone without worldwide attention. Instant internet worldwide communications could be the cause of the global shutdown. Countries and governors immediately began competing to implement the most overreaching draconian decrees.

, formerly of the Rockefeller University said social distancing could be making the problem worse. “The problem is if we are artificially keeping the number of infections low among low-risk people like school children and their parents we may not have reached herd immunity yet.” “The downside of starting containment, we should not believe that we are more intelligent than mother nature was when we were evolving. Mother Nature (God) was pretty good at making sure that we’re a good match for the diseases that we happen to see virtually every year.”

Some believe America as we know it is gone. They think Trump will allow Dr. Fauci to dictate when and how we reopen America. I think not.

Folks, I cannot believe that God would bring our country back from the brink of destruction (President Hillary), only to leave us. Please allow me to recap.

When Obama was reelected, my wife Mary and I were in a hotel room. We had spent several months on the road with the Conservative Campaign Committee campaigning for Romney. We were devastated.

Obama has been documented as the most biblically hostile president in U.S. history.  I said, “Father, I don’t know why you allowed Obama to be reelected, but I trust you.”

It was impossible to predict that Obama’s mission to usher in America’s decline would pave the yellow-brick road to electing Trump. God is using Trump to bless America beyond our wildest dreams; evidenced by his remarkable and swiftly growing long list of unprecedented achievements for We the People.

Despite billions of dollars’ worth of negative press to brand Trump a clown, a racist, and an idiot, the guy pulled off the impossible. He won the presidency.

Over the past 3½ years, Democrats and fake news media launched numerous impossible-to-survive illegal schemes to end Trump’s presidency. Trump survived them all.

Coronavirus is the big Kahuna of their schemes to end their nightmare of having a fearless fighter for We the People in the Oval Office. Like every other evil scheme they have launched against Trump, corona-madness will fail.

My faith in the American people is proving correct. I stated that I could not imagine the American people putting up with the shutdown for very long. I am delighted that the nationwide rebellion against unconstitutional coronavirus dictates has begun.

In Michigan, citizens will launch “Operation Gridlock,” a traffic jam protesting Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s absurd overreaching shutdown.

Citizens in North Carolina started a social media campaign titled, #ReOpenNC.” They held a protest rally at which a woman was arrested. Like the black civil rights movement, people are willing to go to jail for their rights and freedom.

A hot thread on twitter is #ReopenAmericaNow. Reopen rallies are popping up in Ohio, Utah, and other states.

Pat Buchanan’s article “What Price Victory, in the Coronavirus War?” is one of a rapidly growing list of articles demanding that we immediately reopen America.

Trump is on the same page as Americans who want our country re-opened. However, with fake news media lying about everything he says and does, Trump must play his cards close to his vest. As I stated weeks ago, I would not be surprised if Trump begins reopening America before April 30th.

With our prayers, Trump will likely pull off the impossible again. He will restore our economy and win reelection. Fake news media and Democrats will simply plan their next big lie to stop his keep America great agenda.

God did not bring our country this far to leave us. “Fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord…” (Exodus 14:13)

Patriots’ Day: The Forgotten History of America’s Patriots’ Day and What it Commemorates

By: Sam Jacobs | Ammo.com

Patriots' Day: The Forgotten History of America's Patriots' Day and What it CommemoratesWhile it’s not celebrated too widely outside of New England, Patriots’ Day (or “Patriot’s Day” if you live in Maine) is a big deal there, primarily in the state where the Battles of Lexington and Concord actually took place – Massachusetts. For anyone reading this from New England who isn’t aware: No, you’re not getting the third Monday in April off so you can stay home and watch the Boston Marathon.

Even before the Declaration of Independence was written, there were the Battles of Lexington and Concord – the true beginning of the American Revolution. To be sure, this is something that had been brewing for some time. There was the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and the Intolerable Acts. But the Battles of Lexington and Concord marked the first shots fired between Patriots and Tories, beginning what would eventually lead to the independence of the American colonies from the British Empire.

While the battles began as a small skirmish, they quickly became a bona fide fight – and a bridge from which the American rebels could not walk back.

Increasing Tensions in the Massachusetts Bay Colony

By the time of the battles, the British occupying troops had already earned the nickname of “redcoats,” or even “devils” depending on who you spoke to. They had been occupying Boston since 1768, and due to forced quartering as well as increased resistance on the part of the colonists, the tensions between the natives and the occupying army were only growing with time.

Boston was to some degree under the control of General Thomas Gage, military governor of Massachusetts and the commander of a garrison of some 3,000 British troops stationed in the city. However, outside of the city was a whole other issue. Indeed, it was outside of the city where the rebel sentiment held the most sway. While it is often said that one-third of colonists were Tories, another third Patriots, and another third apathetic, the Patriots held the overwhelming majority of support among Massachusetts colonists outside of Boston.

Gage planned to assert central control over the more rural parts of the Massachusetts Bay Colony by using small strikes to confiscate the Patriot militias’ supplies. He had some success in doing this in advance of the Battles of Lexington and Concord in what was known as the Powder Alarms.

Still, due to the threat of Indian raids, every town in Massachusetts was required to have a militia. And these militias needed supplies. Disarming all of them seemed unlikely at best.

Confiscating the Colonial Arms

On April 14, 1775, the order came down from the central authority in London that General Gage was to confiscate the colonial arms. On the morning of April 18, Gage sent a mounted patrol of 20 men to intercept messengers and, perhaps most importantly, to find Samuel Adams and John Hancock. It was their search for the latter two men that tipped off the colonists that something bigger was afoot. This put the residents of the area on a higher alert than they otherwise might have been.

Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith was ordered to go relieve the Concord militia of its arms and powder, but not to disturb the locals or their property. He did not give orders to arrest the rebel leaders for fear that this would spark a huge uprising.

The Patriots had largely been alerted to both the general plan (remove their arms and powder) and the specific plan (go after the Concord militia), and the Massachusetts Provincial Congress ordered the militias to resist the British troops with force.

On April 18, in preparation for the arrival of British troops, Paul Revere took his famous “midnight ride” to warn the colonists of the area that “the British are coming.” Indeed, the colonials had intercepted the transmission from London and knew that April 19th would be the day of the raid, even before General Gage knew. The leading lights of the rebellion left the city of Boston and laid low to avoid an arrest.

The Minutemen Are Born

The American mythos surrounding the Minutemen is about as powerful as that surrounding the cowboy. Thus it is fitting that the Minutemen were born during the battle that kicked off the struggle for American independence.

While it’s true that the Minutemen were in existence before these battles, it was during Lexington and Concord when they really came into their own as an important force. Indeed, in response to the “midnight ride,” militiamen were organized as far as 25 miles away while British troops were still landing.

Lexington was more of a minor skirmish than anything. The British troops weren’t even supposed to be there. British Marine Lieutenant Jesse Adai decided to turn right instead of left, putting him in Lexington instead of Concord.

Upon meeting up with the rebels, an unknown British officer rode in front of the British troops, waved his sword and ordered the militia to disperse, yelling “lay down your arms, you damned rebels!” For his part, the captain of the militia ordered his men to disperse, but his orders were either unheard or not obeyed. In any event, while some of the men did choose to disperse, none of them laid down their arms. Both commanding officers ordered their men not to fire, but someone did.

No one is sure who fired first. In fact, most historical sources agree that it was someone uninvolved in the fighting. Only one British troop suffered minor injuries. However, eight patriots were killed and 10 were wounded at Lexington. Most of these occurred during a British bayonet charge.

In Concord, militiamen from both Concord and neighboring Lincoln were already amassing. Tensions mounted between an advancing Patriot militia and a retreating British force at The North Bridge. A firefight broke out, leading militia commander Major Buttrick to yell out, “Fire, for God’s sake, fellow soldiers, fire!”

Fire they did. The British regulars were soon outnumbered and outmaneuvered. It was a stunning strategic victory for the American Patriot forces.

The Reaction to the Battles

It’s likely that none of the colonists expected to win this battle, nevermind to win it quite as handily as they did. Most probably didn’t even think there would be a confrontation where each side was shooting to kill. However, the early stages of the American revolution are filled with examples of the colonists being surprised as they walked further and further out onto the ledge of independence.

All told, 15,000 militiamen showed up to encircle Boston on three sides and to keep the British regulars hemmed inside the city where they could only do negligible damage. Men were pouring into the region from Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Hampshire, forming the core of what was about to become the Continental Army.

General Gage did not declare martial law but instead continued his move to seize private weapons by other means.

The main reason the battle was a strategic failure for the British was that it baited them into exactly the kind of confrontation they were trying to avoid by confiscating arms from the colonial militias. The battle was largely seen as the moment when the rebels crossed the metaphorical Rubicon and could not go back to the status quo antebellum.

For what it’s worth, the Patriots very heavily relied upon propaganda to paint this battle in a positive light. Inconvenient facts were suppressed and more positive aspects of the Patriots’ role in the battle were played up to give the colonists a battle they could believe in.

Over the years, the battle began to take on an almost mythic quality. Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poem “Concord Hymn” was one of the earliest post-Revolutionary attempts at lionizing the battle. “Paul Revere’s Ride” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was memorized by generations of schoolchildren.

Four Massachusetts National Guard units can directly tie their lineage to this battle.

The Beginnings of Patriots’ Day

In 1894, the Lexington Historical Society petitioned the Massachusetts General Court to declare April 19th “Lexington Day.” Concord wasn’t willing to let this stand and counter-petitioned that it be declared (what else?) “Concord Day.”

They were both at a bit of a loss when they found out that the biggest battle fought on April 19th was actually in Menotomy, which is now known as Arlington. It has been speculated that one of the reasons the much larger battle is less remembered than the two smaller ones is because the name of the town has changed several times since the American Revolution.

As a compromise designed to keep everyone happy, Governor Frederic T. Greenhalge proclaimed the day “Patriots’ Day,” which replaced the previous Fast Day. The new state holiday served to consolidate what had previously been a variety of local observances throughout the state. It further commemorated the first blood of the Civil War during the Baltimore Riots of 1861, where four Massachusetts militia members were killed.

Maine became the second state to celebrate the holiday in 1907, likewise replacing what had formerly been Fast Day. New Hampshire became the third state in 1991, with Connecticut joining as the fourth in 2018. It is currently celebrated on the third Monday in April.

Because Bay Staters love their sports, the Boston Marathon takes place on Patriot’s Day, and the Boston Red Sox have been scheduled for home games every year since 1959. In 2013, they played despite the bombing of the Boston Marathon.

Those who do not live in Massachusetts or New England frequently confuse or conflate the holiday with Bunker Hill Day or Evacuation Day. The former of these celebrates an unrelated battle in June, and the latter commemorates the British evacuation from the city of Boston after the successful siege by the nascent Continental Army. Evacuation Day, for its part, is often confused with St. Patrick’s Day because it is commemorated on the same day.

All of these (except St. Patrick’s Day, of course) are part of a family of holidays known as Minor Revolutionary Holidays. But Patriot’s Day is arguably the most important of them for three reasons. First, it celebrates the very beginning of our nation. Before the Battles of Lexington and Concord, we were nothing more than a bunch of colonies with a few radical rebels. After the battles, we became a nation in the making.

The other reason largely flows from the first: While there are only a handful of New England states that celebrate Patriot’s Day, it is recognized in Wisconsin as a day off for the public schools. The State of Florida urges people to celebrate it without it being an official holiday. People around the country have at least heard of Patriot’s Day in a way that they haven’t, for example, Bennington Battle Day.

Finally, the Battles of Lexington and Concord are arguably where the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms was born. It was the attempt by the redcoats to seize their arms that demonstrated just how important this right was to the colonials. The Battles of Lexington and Concord were the Patriots putting their lives on the line to defend that right.

So, on April 19 (or the third Monday of April, whichever you like), go ahead and remember Patriot’s Day – why it’s celebrated and what it is intended to remember. Even if you’re not in New England, it’s important to remember the origins of our nation in a small battle outside of Boston.


Weaponized Or Not, It Is Certain That COVID-19 Originated In A Chinese Lab And They Need To Be Held Accountable

By: Terresa Monroe-Hamilton

In my viewpoint, COVID-19 is an act of war by China. Most won’t voice that concern but it doesn’t make it any less true. I agree with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) who told “Hannity” Wednesday that China’s leadership “must be made to pay the price” if it is determined that the coronavirus pandemic originated in a Wuhan laboratory. We should be on a war footing over this as I believe that it was not an accident but intentional. The virus spreading benefited China greatly… it bumped violent protests in Hong Kong from the headlines, squelched the fact that their economy is in serious trouble and rebuffed Trump’s tariffs as a means to curb China’s economic warfare against America.

Cotton stated: “Since January, I’ve said it seems to be highly coincidental that this very contagious virus originated just a few hundred yards or maybe a couple miles from laboratories where the Chinese Communist Party researches coronaviruses,” Cotton said. “Bret Baier’s reporting tonight, if it bears out, shows that the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for every single death, every job lost, every retirement nest egg lost from this coronavirus, and Xi Jinping and his Chinese Communist apparatchiks must be made to pay the price. If that turns out to be true.” Of course, it’s true and it should be treated as nothing less than an act of war.

Why should China care if some of their citizens die if it serves a greater goal for the communists who are using this emergency to grab more global power and to further their megalomaniacal global conquest desires? The virus also gave the communist left in America the opportunity to further their communist goals, to do a two-step on the Constitution and to shred our rights state by state. Look at the progressive governors in states such as Nevada, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Michigan along with many others and what they have done under cover of never letting an emergency go to waste. Banning gatherings of more than ten at a time; prohibiting attending church even in your car by fining attendees, recording their license plates and throwing down nails in church parking lots; disallowing gathering with family members for Easter; blocking the use of drugs that cure the disease; destroying the economy of their individual states by shutting down all business… I could go on and on. This feels orchestrated to me. Americans know this is wrong and are fed up with it.

Meanwhile, the Beijing government may have engaged in the “costliest government coverup of all time.” Cotton told host Sean Hannity he wants to open American courts for lawsuits against Chinese leaders, adding “I have legislation that would modify the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act [of 1976] to do just that.” Good for him. That’s exactly what should be done.

Next, America should move ALL manufacturing out of China. Having it there in the first place was a monstrous mistake. The majority of our pharmaceuticals are made there now which is a massive security risk. In fact, China threatened to withhold medicine from us in the midst of this mess. A “massive shift” of our manufacturing out of China “would be devastating to the Chinese economy.” I’m good with that.

“Just imagine,” Cotton said, “not just in America, but all around the world, the demands for accountability and consequences on the Chinese Communist Party and Chairman Xi if it turns out that Chinese negligence and then Chinese corruption and treachery was responsible for unleashing this pandemic on the world.” Imagine it because it is true.

Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts stated yesterday during the Coronavirus Task Force press briefing that U.S. officials have “high confidence” that the coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan.

“Multiple sources are telling Fox News today that the United States government now has high confidence that while the coronavirus is a naturally occurring virus, it emanated from a virology lab in Wuhan,” Roberts said. “That because of [lax] safety protocols, an intern was infected who later infected her boyfriend, and then went to the wet market in Wuhan where it began to spread.”

“Does that correspond with what you have heard from officials?” Roberts asked.

“Well, I don’t want to say that John, but I will tell you, more and more we’re hearing the story and we’ll see,” Trump responded.

They are deflecting what is really being whispered out there that this was a bioweapon. It was not an accident. The Chinese engineered it carefully and then systematically released it. Many of their own citizens are saying just that by the way while we play diplomatic games to cover our own behinds instead of coming right out and charging the communist Chinese with war crimes.

President Trump won’t discuss this right now and he shouldn’t. We are talking about national security and military issues that are very sensitive here. I’m sure he is quite aware of what is going on and who is to blame.

From The Daily Wire:

The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that the State Department had repeatedly warned that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) was not properly managed and that there were serious concerns about coronavirus research that was taking place at the lab that involved bats.

“In January 2018, the U.S. Embassy in Beijing took the unusual step of repeatedly sending U.S. science diplomats to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), which had in 2015 become China’s first laboratory to achieve the highest level of international bioresearch safety (known as BSL-4),” The Washington Post’s Josh Rogin reported Tuesday. “What the U.S. officials learned during their visits concerned them so much that they dispatched two diplomatic cables categorized as Sensitive But Unclassified back to Washington.”

It is important to note that The Washington Post’s report indicated that there is no credible information that exists that suggests that the virus was created or engineered, which is not the same thing as saying that it did not come from a lab.

One of the cables sent by the State Department in January 2018 said, “During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.”

The Post added:

There are similar concerns about the nearby Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention lab, which operates at biosecurity level 2, a level significantly less secure than the level-4 standard claimed by the Wuhan Insititute of Virology lab, Xiao said. That’s important because the Chinese government still refuses to answer basic questions about the origin of the novel coronavirus while suppressing any attempts to examine whether either lab was involved.

Sources familiar with the cables said they were meant to sound an alarm about the grave safety concerns at the WIV lab, especially regarding its work with bat coronaviruses. The embassy officials were calling for more U.S. attention to this lab and more support for it, to help it fix its problems.

One U.S. official told The Post, “The cable was a warning shot. They were begging people to pay attention to what was going on.”

“The idea that it was just a totally natural occurrence is circumstantial,” the official continued. “The evidence it leaked from the lab is circumstantial. Right now, the ledger on the side of it leaking from the lab is packed with bullet points and there’s almost nothing on the other side.”

I have no love or respect for The Washington Post. They are painting this as an accident and Fox News is following that storyline. I won’t do any such thing here because I am all but certain this was a form of biowarfare. But regardless, if it came from their labs, China bears the responsibility for thousands of deaths and the destruction of our economy. Our debt to them should be written off. That in itself would bring on war with China but it is what should happen.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) agrees on the issue that China should have to pay a price here. He told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum on Wednesday that there must be “consequences” for communist China’s alleged silencing of whistleblowers who tried to warn the world about the outbreak of the coronavirus.

“There needs to be accountability. Look, first we have to defeat this crisis,” Cruz said. “But afterwards, there needs to be a careful accountability as to the communist government’s in China’s responsibility, both for covering it up and suppressing it, that we know, and also whether the communist government played an inadvertent part in the outbreak itself.”

“There were two State Department cables that you referenced that occurred early on that described two different labs in Wuhan, within miles where the outbreak occurred that were studying bat coronaviruses, and the Chinese government does not want to answer questions about whether they were studying the novel coronavirus and whether it was an accidental escape from their own labs,” Cruz continued. “There needs to be real accountability because the State Department was worried about the threat of a pandemic from these labs before the pandemic occurred and China. That may be part of the cover-up, they don’t want to answer basic questions.”

Cruz added, “I think the United States, I think the world community, needs to insist on accountability and consequences for China’s responsibility here.” Yes, they do.

Fox News is reporting on the evidence building that this did come from a Chinese lab in Wuhan:

“COVID-19 originated in a Wuhan laboratory not as a bioweapon, but as part of China’s effort to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News,” Fox News reported. “The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus was bat-to-human, and that ‘patient zero’ worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.”

“Documents detail early efforts by doctors at the lab and early efforts at containment. The Wuhan wet market initially identified as a possible point of origin never sold bats, and the sources tell Fox News that blaming the wet market was an effort by China to deflect blame from the laboratory, along with the country’s propaganda efforts targeting the U.S. and Italy,” Fox News continued. “China ‘100 percent’ suppressed data and changed data, the sources tell Fox News. Samples were destroyed, contaminated areas scrubbed, some early reports erased, and academic articles stifled.”

A U.S. official told Fox News that this was potentially the “costliest government coverup of all time.”

Sources also tell Fox News that the World Health Organization (WHO) was complicit from the beginning in helping China cover its tracks. Trump was right to cut off their funding regardless of how loudly Bill Gates screams over it. Let him fund the communist propagandists… he’ll feel right at home as a Marxist and eugenicist.

You can see Fox’s timeline on this here. The Chinese delayed disclosing the outbreak for six days and held a gathering for thousands there where it spread rapidly and then was set loose in the wild to wreak havoc across the planet. If that doesn’t sound pre-planned I don’t know what does.

Ask yourself if you trust the communist Chinese… are we feeling that gullible? Meanwhile, China is conducting secret nuclear tests. Nothing to see here folks… nothing at all. Just the prelude to world war.
