CSN Newsletter 1/7/2021 – Americans – Fooled, Trapped and Abandoned?
From our Founder…
Yesterday the U.S. Capitol building was stormed, and unless anyone was still hibernating through the winter, or hiding out in their basement bunkers, most people were able to witness the “eyewitness” news on the mainstream media outlets. Or so they believe they witnessed the events as they unfolded. The other day, even as events were unfolding, more of the story was evident as Antifa infiltrators were also witnessed being present in the crowd of Trump supporters. And before we go any further, I would like to offer our respect to Ashli Babbitt, the young woman who lost her life yesterday in something that may have been yet one more entrapment of good people to commit actions that were without wisdom. May God have mercy on her soul.
While the sudden shock of the news of storming the U.S. Capitol building may have caused various immediate reactions in several people, individuals should be extremely careful of jumping to easy conclusions about what they “saw” on television. Today, as bits and pieces of information are discovered, it “appears” that there were incidences of Antifa infiltrators playing a precipitative role in the storming of the Capitol. If these points of information, which to a real journalist would be considered “leads,” were discovered, it would mean at least a couple of things: 1) it would cause legitimate and conscientious journalist to observe what they saw, listen to what they heard, discern the obvious, and look for the covert causes; and 2) it would cause sincere hesitation in jumping on a story to follow all leads to their logical or rational conclusion.
Readers should ask themselves why the MSM, and other Democrat leaders did not react as strongly when the protestors stormed the Capitol when the hearings to confirm Brett Kavanaugh occurred. Did people forget the reaction of the MSM to those atrocious events? Did people forget the reaction of the MSM to the rioting in the summer months, to the establishment of react to a similar situation
When questions remain after an event such as this, as they normally do in such cases, too much is presumed without complete discovery. In this case, readers should carefully think about how quickly the mainstream media jumped on the story, how quickly Trump “supporters” who are viewed as leaders distanced themselves from the POTUS, and how quickly world leaders condemned such actions. The most vivid historical example that is comparable is the storming of the Bastille that sparked the French Revolution. It was based on fake reports that the King of France was about to attack the peasants in Paris. It was a lie, yet it did not matter as events spun out of control after that. If this is such an action, and the storming of the Capitol was precipitated by Marxists, May this be exposed to the fullest extent by those who love the Republic.
Today’s lineup of articles were sent by our writers before the events yesterday, except for my article which was written after the rally in Sacramento. I wrote about the present predicament of the Republic for which it stands, as in “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
I would bet that if you had all those patriots and common folks who marched in D.C. the other day, there would have been many in the number who would have refused to offer the Pledge of Allegiance in a genuine and sincere way.
A Dru Kristenev’s recent article posits a sincere question for all those who are feeling fully disenfranchised by the GOP. Her title expresses her topic: “Abandoned by the RNC do we consider a new start?” It is provocative; read only if you do not fear to tread there.
Our third article today is one from Judith LaMontagne who expresses in “Trapped” what many good-hearted, humble, and faith filled people may be feeling just about now. She, like many, is hoping for a “modern miracle will come to our aid and resurrect America from its imminent rush to Socialism and decay.”
Journalist Douglas Burton returns in this edition in an insightful report on “The State of the Fake News.” It is an article that he shared with CSN from a post published in the Chronicle Magazine. This is a newly discovered publication for the CSN that promises many good commentaries from experienced writers, like Mr. Burton. It appears that it is a monthly magazine and we’re including two links to other recommended articles from their January edition.
Our final article is from Don Rosenberg, who had today’s article previously posted in Canada Free Press at the turn of the new year, on January 2. He provides an interesting way to view our nation’s politics through the lenses of science fiction.
We are bypassing the current noise and repetitive videos designed to brainwash the ones who cannot think independently. So if one is looking for videos of the political fallout from the street theater that may be currently used to obscure the truth, it will not be in our newsletter. Instead, view our current bank of videos for a more clear understanding of the current reality and true state of the (dis)Union.

In such a time as this, the American Republic appears to be on its deathbed. While a certain sadness fills citizens’ hearts when considering that four brave and well-meaning people died yesterday in the storming of the United States Capitol building, it is more appropriate to pray for their souls. Many in the nation may mourn the loss of life in such a meaningless attempt to fight for what those patriots believed they were doing through their dramatic actions. Certainly, their families will mourn their deaths as the loss of any life leaves a definite void. And, if that can be understood, the death of the Republic will leave an unmistakable void.
Not to diminish any individual’s death, whether by disease, violence, or by natural causes of aging, the death of a nation, is by far a loss that cannot be easily dismissed because it affects so many people’s lives. Yet, when so few stand to defend the nation due to lack of courage simply to exercise the authority one has been granted by the people, it is indeed a tragedy. When cowardice abounds in quite many so-called “leaders,” people naturally lose confidence in those they trust to lead them.
Especially, when people’s lives, liberty, and the freedom to pursue their livelihoods are genuinely threatened, they often choose to fight. This is the beating heart of America, and without a sense that the government is able to secure such rights, citizens can no longer have confidence in the leaders that they elected to lead them. As such confidence fades, helplessness or hopelessness can gnaw at the soul. In such times, only the bold and brave can be strong enough to determine to stand and fight for God-given rights.
We’re consistently told that third parties can’t survive in the two-party jungle of American politics. Those of us abandoned by the treacherous Republican Party are beginning to wonder if that’s true.
After the establishment GOP reportedly didn’t bother to send poll watchers to the Georgia tally barns, allowing the democrat fraud machine to snatch the senatorial races without a whimper, any allegiance that might have remained dissipated following the poached presidential vote. As much as the conservative voice, which speaks for more than half this nation, has suffered final betrayal by the RNC, it’s becoming clear that members have had enough.
A Trump Party by name may not be appropriate though he is the fountainhead who faithfully kept his word building courage among conservatives to make a valiant stand to save this nation from its indolent self. If that offends some, that’s too bad because it was many in our generation who got distracted and missed the signs of electoral degeneration that has been advancing over the last decades. No, not years, decades.
In the aftermath of the 2020 election, many Americans feel as if they are caught in the same evil “traps” as the children in the mythical tale of Narnia, and that only Aslan, (Trump) the noble lion, can save them. Aslan, of course, in the C.S. Lewis’ story is an allusion to Christ. Unfortunately, Aslan has himself been conquered by death, or so they think, and there is no way they can extricate themselves without him in charge. His courage and righteousness were their only hope. And now he is dead. Or is he? While reading the book, we continue spellbound, to hope for a miracle.
But back to the present, Americans have been led into numerous “traps” in past months from which it will be extremely difficult to extricate ourselves. We typically think of traps in connection with wild animals, but they are useful in politics as well.
To the hunter, or the politician with a Leftist agenda, the most useful trap is the foothold device. Unwary Conservative citizens going about their business as well as they could before COVID-19, were ensnared before they were aware. Suddenly, they could no longer move about freely because of fear of COVID, and they were now forced to remain at home, away from their jobs and away from gathering in groups with those of like mind. Many victims faced bankruptcy and closure of formerly flourishing businesses. Some of those small companies will never again see the light of day.
It’s often said that prostitution is the world’s oldest profession. But after this year’s election, we know that isn’t true. The first crime was information warfare, starting right there in the Garden of Eden.
At least that’s true for citizens trying to make sense of who legitimately won the White House this year. Information now takes a backseat to disinformation, as illustrated by the daily gyre of claimed facts about the election, countered by seemingly plausible counterclaims.
In the conventional telling, Disinformazia earned its green card in America when the Kremlin deployed armies of trolls to serve up fake news on social media in 2016. Some were pro-Hillary, others, pro-Trump. It is apparently a well-known strategy of Russia’s spymasters to flood Western democracies with complex and contradictory allegations on the eve of elections, exacerbating hatred, triggering chaos, and causing authorities in targeted nations to turn on each other.
Fiction or Real Life? What Sci-Fi can teach us about today’s politics
Fiction writers, especially science fiction writers, perform an extremely valuable service for our society beyond providing endless fun for 10-year-old geeky kids. By writing about “things that might be,” they encourage us to think outside the box, consider unlikely or unpopular possibilities, and think through scenarios that could affect our current and future lives.
All of us live in the world of science fiction. We are transported into the future one second at a time and must constantly adapt and adjust to our new world. Businesses, governments and military experts must adapt to new ways of thinking or risk becoming obsolete. Many of our most successful entrepreneurs became billionaires by taking quick and bold advantage of new technologies and developing futuristic products and services we all now take for granted.
Science fiction asks the “what if?” questions that challenge us to prepare in advance to meet new dangers and opportunities. The events leading up to the election of November 2020 are a case in point.
What if unseen forces began to manipulate people into hating each other for their own purposes? The Star Trek episode, “The Day of the Dove,” explored this question…
From our Executive Editor:
In light of YouTube’s announcement to erase and delete all videos that discuss anything about fraud in the 2020 election, we will be working to provide video content from other sources. When you post content to YouTube or Facebook you’re just showing your hand and waiting to get it smacked. We suggest loading and linking to BitChute.com instead. MeWe.com and USA.Life are good alternatives to Facebook, and Parler.com is a good substitute for Twitter, and is getting a lot of notice.
If you would like to help, please consider joining our efforts to spread the truth about the coming election to over 4 million voters in Facebook groups. Learn more about joining our team of “Facebook Warriors” here.
The Citizen Sentinels Network provides this newsletter for those who are able to consume and digest the truth and honest commentaries from our citizen-journalists. We offer two news editions, and we also offer a Sunday edition with a focus on more spiritual messages.
We hope that our writer’s articles we provide (without ads, without subscription fees, without “strings” attached, or any other obnoxious distractions) could be a source of sanity in such times that try good people’s souls. In human history, the pathway of tyranny in many time periods utilized ignorance and fear with the basic strategy of “divide and conquer.” United “We the People” Stand!
Please remember to share the articles of the writers whose perspectives you appreciate. Spread the articles around to those whom you care about. Also, if you have relevant or serious feedback, please submit it. We appreciate your viewpoint as well.
