CSN Newsletter 5/7/2020 – What we are learning from the crisis

From Our Founder… 5/7/2020

As the nation’s governors have the formidable task of walking a tightrope to determine how to carefully and properly guide their people through the “valley of the shadow of death” and out of the woods and into health, wealth and happiness, there seems to be the temptation of the “great and powerful OZ” illusion. On the one hand they may begin to believe that they are the all powerful governors of their people, or they actually have no doubts about it. On the other hand, they may want the people to believe that they are the great and powerful Leader of the ‘common people.’ This illusion seems to be playing out in several states across America — despite various academic studies that indicate that initial estimates of millions of deaths and overwhelmed hospitals have not materialized in a substantial way.

There are actually many unexpected silver linings to the COVID-19 Pandemic, and they are right before everyone’s eyes, if they have eyes to see. The horrible fallout of the lockdowns has been that between 74,00 and 76,000 (depending on the source) Americans have lost their lives, and approximately 30 million Americans have lost their jobs. But, the curtain has been pulled back by a bat – not a little dog named “Toto.” What have we learned from this insidious disease?

One clear thing is that American citizens have learned that what then candidate Donald Trump was telling us about China is true — but it is actually much worse than he portrayed it to be. And, we as a larger culture have seen how a “matured Socialist” state treats its own citizens as well as the rest of the world’s citizens. We have learned that baby, budding Socialists in the media and in our system of “democracy” are in alignment with the rhetoric of the Chinese Communist Party. We also may need to check the temperatures of those wealthy capitalists who cannot wait to get rich off of the 5G technology. Check your portfolios for hidden ‘Red Flags.’

American citizens have learned that we cannot trust too many countries with our medical supply chain, or trust that they even share the same fundamental values that Americans hold through our beloved “One nation under God” Republic. American citizens, from whatever corner of the planet have learned that Americans do not just believe in freedom, true patriots live it and breathe it. Freedom is not just in our political DNA; it is in our cultural, social DNA. But, all of the people of the world are yearning to be free, and despite the propaganda of China or the positive spin doctors of the MSM, Socialism and Communism has been exposed in this time in which all of the things that have been hidden are coming into the light.

Today, I share an article that was originally posted in the Canada Free Press that deals with the move beyond the “shadow of death” and into the realm of the truly living. It is a genuine perspective on the value of freedom vs. the value of “perceived safety.”

Executive Editor, Don Rosenberg has initiated a new project at Reopen Central in order to help state Reopen… group organizers share information among themselves. It also features a directory of existing Reopen… groups. His article is a wide angle view of the response to the coronavirus illustrated by investigative stories from Laura Ingraham of Fox News.

Dr. Robert Owens provides a testimony of personal transition that is somewhat similar to how I tried to explain to one of my sons who is of the millennial generation how America got to be in the place it has got to be at this time in history.

Pastor Earl Wallace celebrated his birthday at the beginning of May and is passing on his own birthday wishes to our readers and to all Americans for the sake of a more relevant blessing to America in this time of challenge to the Republic.

And, last but not least, the final word from our network writers is reserved today for a piece of Bonnie Parson’s mind entitled: “This I Know.” They are ideals all Americans should know too!

A special suggestion is made to check out the video from the Hoover Virtual Policy Briefing with Dr. Scott Atlas And John Taylor that deals with “COVID-19 And Reopening The Economy.” Last Thursday we provided an article from Dr. Robert Owens on the course of action that Dr. Atlas shares about what he calls the “Five key facts are being ignored by those calling for continuing the near-total lockdown.”

Moving Beyond COVID-19 into Freedom–or Illusions of Freedom?

By Dennis JamisonMay 7, 2020

Americans should be grateful that the COVID-19 Pandemic has revealed to them what Communist China is really like, what some “Democratic” governors are really like in real life when they disregard, trample basic freedoms in the Land of the Free

There were “stirrings” all across the land of the “Free” on May 1st, a day that was taken over by the Communists to commemorate the Haymarket Riot in Chicago on May 4, 1889. But, the stirrings, or demonstrations were not due to Communists, but citizens who are fed up with the lockdown. Historically, May 1st was chosen by the Socialists and Communists to be the date for their International Workers’ Day by the Second International. Roughly since that time, the Socialists have been on the march to undermine the United States of America. Most Americans, however, have not paid much attention to that march—until now.

Trying to make sense of the Coronavirus “Pandemic” a Video Journal from Laura Ingraham

By Don Rosenberg 5/7/2020

Our states have been shut down and our unemployment rate has just reached 16%. With the blizzard of reports, claims and counter-claims, it’s almost impossible to separate fact from hype, national interest from self-interest.

Laura Ingraham of Fox News has done a great service to our country by going directly to the source and talking with experts about the stories behind what’s going on with the pandemic. Here are some questions and how they were answered in expert interviews…

Why did we shut down our economy? We were told it’s “because of the data” and “If we all don’t stay at home, millions will die.” Laura asks why Democrat-controlled states are still on Lockdown with so many fewer deaths per thousand than New York.

Are Democrats Smarter Than Republicans 2020?

by Dr. Robert Owens – 5/7/2020

I’ve asked this question several times.  Have recent events changed my mind?

Remember this headline, “Nunes steps aside from Russia probe.”  Why?  As Nunes puts it, “Several left wing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics.  The charges are entirely false and politically motivated and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.”

Do you think if House Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Democrat Adam Schiff was serving as the head of the committee he would’ve stepped aside?  No way.  If this had been going on against a Democrat, the entire Progressive establishment would’ve attacked the Ethics Committee for even accepting such accusations.

My Birthday Wish Is That God Will Restore Our Beloved USA To Its Bible-Based Freedoms and Civics

by Pastor Earl Wallace 5/1/2020

Have you considered that there are 10 Commandments and there are 10 Bill of Rights and that the Bill of Rights is designed to guide people in government to treat we-the-people according to the 10 Commandments?

The 1st Amendment of the US Constitution states:  Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment 1 of the US Constitution conjoins five rights, listing first…

1) freedom of RELIGION – meaning Biblical Christianity, the religion of America’s Puritans and Pilgrims, is to be the guide for how we administer and live out  …

2) what is considered acceptable SPEECH, and inappropriate speech;

3) how the PRESS should report as crime that which violates the Bible’s Ten Commandments, and as noteworthy that which the Bible calls praiseworthy;

THIS I KNOW – A Vision for America

By Bonnie Parsley 5/1/2020

I know that God is good. I know that he guided the Founders of the United States in drafting our Constitution. This occurred after many weeks of discussion, arguments and disagreements. Finally, Ben Franklin stood and addressed the delegates…..

I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? Now, we have reached the point in our history where we must ask for his guidance again, not just for Congress but for the entire nation.

Since the election of Donald J. Trump as President, the mainstream media has shown enormous bias against him. The Democrats in Congress have lied, created investigations, and resisted him at every opportunity. Truth in the age of Trump is a rare thing. However, I know that the majority of the American people will not be deceived.
