From Our Founder… 11/26/19
Many Americans during this Thanksgiving holiday will likely be concerned over the obvious division within the nation. Citizens are witnessing history in the making beyond the normal pale of the majority of historical events. There is much more to be digested this Thanksgiving than the good food on people’s plates. The times provide more than enough turmoil to digest each week. To acknowledge Thanksgiving this week, I have offered an article on the First Thanksgiving. But I am also offering an article dealing with an inconvenient truth that has too long been ignored. Technically, this edition is our Thanksgiving edition. But, if readers want to shelve reality in exchange for a more pleasant holiday season, it is a free country, and I would not think less of anyone for taking a respite from the political battles that are currently raging across the nation. However, Citizen Sentinels provide this newsletter for those who are able to consume and digest the news and our views as well.
In light of this, Karen Cacy offers an insider’s view of how “America’s not-so-civil civil service employees rise up.” Karen Cacy is a former Washington, D.C. based speechwriter and transportation lobbyist, and she is quite aware of the culture in D.C. Michael Lewinski provides a perspective that has been advanced by many in recent times as he deals with “A Time for Choosing.”
We also offer a couple of contributions from DefCon News this week. One article tackles the impeachment debacle and essentially makes the point that enough is enough. The other piece takes on Elizabeth Warren’s vow to end ‘Traffic Violence.’ Additionally, we have a couple of articles from wonderful ladies who tend to round off the rough edges to this edition. Kathleen Hall reminds us all of how this nation was created in “Love Brought Us Our Republic; Love Can Keep It.” And last but not least, Susan Clouse offers an article that is most appropriate for the upcoming holiday when she shares her heart about the value of gratitude.
Americans Uniting for the Abolition of Black Genocide
America’s very existence may very well be tied to how citizens look upon and defend the existence of the life growing inside mothers’ wombs.
By Dennis Jamison – November 26, 2019
In a couple of days, Americans will be celebrating Thanksgiving, a holiday usually centering around the value of family and friendship and gratitude to God for His blessings upon us all. Unfortunately, this holiday will be bittersweet based upon a recent awakening at an educational event in California sponsored by the Salt & Light Council in the area. The recent event was not only educational, it delivered more of a shock to one’s conscience than many attendees were ready to receive. As a white journalist in attendance at what seemed to be a predominantly black audience, the most shocking message delivered to the attendees was from a black woman who spoke unequivocally about the existence of Black genocide in the United States of America. It awakened many attendees.
America’s not so civil civil service employees rise up
written by Karen Hagestad Cacy Nov 20, 2019
COLORADO SPRINGS: Two civil servants jumped rank to testify against their president. U.S. Army Lt. Colonel Alexander Vindman serves as the Director for European Affairs for the U.S. National Security Council. Veteran foreign service officer, Jennifer Williams works for the vice president as Special Advisor on Europe and Russia.
Both civil servants appearing before the House Select Intelligence Committee were tasked with conducting inquiries related to Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Williams, who listened in on President Trump’s call with the newly elected president of Ukraine, Zelinsky, termed the call “unusual.” And Vindman, who corrected Representative Adam Nunes’ addressing him as “Mister,” saying “Lt. Col Vindman, please,” shared his snide critique of President Trump with the remark, “This is America, here right matters.”
In seven short words, “Who do these people think they are?!”
Game Over Parts 4&5: President Trump Wanted NO Quid Pro Quo

The Democrats’ sham impeachment inquiry continued Wednesday with yet another witness testifying that President Trump did not tie military aid to Ukraine in exchange for investigations into the rotten Bidens and the worse Democrats. This came after testimony in which witnesses said President Trump had committed no crimes and last week’s testimony saying the same thing. The public hearings have now provided at least 5 “game over” moments and yet Adam Schiff and the Democrats continue to push this sorry coup attempt.
The Democrats have alleged that Trump has committed an impeachable offense, but they can’t quite settle on what that is. At various times they have accused him of quid pro quo, extortion and bribery. The witnesses they have rolled out to prove this, however, have denied the President did any of this, making the public hearings the worst movie franchise in history.
Game Over Part 1: Ukraine In The Membrane – Last Wednesday, diplomats George Kent and Bill Taylor testified about their feelings but when asked if President Trump had committed an impeachable offense, neither man could say he had. Game over!
Game Over Part 2: Pathetic Boogaloo – Also last Wednesday former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch testified that Trump made her sad, but had no knowledge of any wrongdoing on the President’s part.
“Do you have any information regarding the President of the United States accepting any bribes?” Republican Rep. Chris Stewart asked.
“No,” replied Yovanovitch.
“Do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the President of the United States has been involved with at all?” Stewart asked.
“No,” replied Yovanovitch.
Game over, man. Again.
Is a Car Ban Coming? Elizabeth Warren Vows to end ‘Traffic Violence’
Courtesy of Def-Con News 11/22/19
Using the exact same language she uses to promote gun control, Elizabeth Warren vowed to put an end to “traffic violence.” What is traffic violence? That remains unclear, but since ending “gun violence” means taking our guns away, it’s likely that ending “traffic violence” will result in the government confiscating our cars. If there’s one constant in this universe it’s that Democrats want to take away everything we have: guns, cars, straws, meat, money, freedom, rights, etc…
In case you think I’m overreacting to something vague Elizabeth Warren said, here’s a tweet where she spells it all out:
This is all kinds of crazy, but here’s the single biggest piece of insanity: Elizabeth Warren thinks that traffic accidents are “violence.” As if all the people who die in car accidents had been purposefully targeted and eliminated. There’s a pretty good reason why they call these things “accidents” and it’s mostly because they are unintentional.
The heart of family and friends is at the heart of the first Thanksgiving
by Dennis Jamison Nov 26, 2019
SAN DIEGO: On Thanksgiving Day this year, a majority of Americans will partake in various activities to celebrate the historic holiday. Celebrations usually involve a hearty meal of one sort or another. The centerpiece is the food (and oftentimes football). However, many families of faith will still express gratitude for the blessings they received during the year. The original purpose for of celebrating this traditional holiday.
Yet, many good celebrants are unaware that a central peace between the Native Indians and the Pilgrims existed as the foundation for the event now referred to as the “First Thanksgiving.”
This reality of a peace treaty is not taught in United States history courses. Neither is it taught by Christian historians or ministers. Christians focus on the first “true” Thanksgiving that took place in 1623. Besides, what does it matter in the midst of the mashed potatoes, turkey and pumpkin pie?
With regard to Thanksgiving, thoughts of Pilgrims and Native Indians are easily dismissed and overshadowed by the Patriots and Redskins. Pilgrims and Native Indians are among the mothballs of history, having lost any genuine relevance. Nevertheless, the “First Thanksgiving” had more to do with two diverse groups of people enjoying something much more valuable than wild turkey and venison.
Love Brought Us Our Republic; Love Can Keep It
By Kathleen Hall 11/26/19
When you read Eric Metaxas’ book, “If You Can Keep It,” even if you always have loved your country, and appreciated the many blessings it gives us, you will gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of how miraculous its coming about really is.
If you are one of the hardcore indoctrinated, I believe some will at least entertain a revision of their beliefs when learning about the uniqueness and goodness in how our Constitution was designed to allow the people to always be able to right the wrongs in our system of government through an ordered, lawful process of representation, with an active citizenry.
The misled and skeptical may think to ask themselves who really cares about “the people” who are always invoked to prove the high-minded and superior government leaders care about us. Who wants to empower individuals to reach their full potential and self-sufficiency, and who is it that wants only to control them, their thoughts and their votes? This while fighting against school choice and maintaining poverty by encouraging single-parent families, (now over 70%) in minority homes and turning a blind eye to ongoing inner-city crime and violence waiting to swallow up fatherless young males. Who fights to guard our religious freedom, the cornerstone of our Constitution, the reason people fled to this country in the beginning and still do so, and who is suppressing our freedom to live out our faith in our lives, businesses and in the public square?
Gratitude is the Key to Happiness
By Susan Schrier Clouse aka Preacher Girl, November 24, 2019
Everyone wants to be happy, but what does gratitude have to do with it? After some pondering, I realized that in my own life I am happy and grateful. Most of the angry and unhappy people I have known were also very unappreciative of the people around them and the blessings they did have.
Here is the whole quote from Dennis Prager, talk-show host and author.
“Because gratitude is the key to happiness, anything that undermines gratitude must undermine happiness. And nothing undermines gratitude as much as expectations. There is an inverse relationship between expectations and gratitude: The more expectations you have, the less gratitude you will have.”
Do you want to happier? Be more grateful! Start this Thanksgiving by showing your gratitude to your friends and family – and perhaps even the folks you run into throughout your day.
