CSN Newsletter – 6/9/2020 – Attacking our Rights, Then our Cities, Now our Police
From Our Founder…
6/9/20 – This past week has tended to calm down as President Trump has laid down the law that he would deploy the National Guard to the riot – torn cities if the local Democrat governors in some states could not restore civility and order. There were around 30 cities in the United States that were all controlled by Democrats where violence was the worst and seemed uncontrollable. Innocent people were killed. Police officers were murdered. COVID lockdown orders in many states where the violence was worst were also brought under curfews. President Trump also issued a curfew to restore law and order.
Amidst this scenario, the new cry from Democrats is to defund, or severely restrict, funding to the police forces across the country. President Trump reaffirmed he would not abandon his support for the police and law enforcement officials across the nation. President Trump has authorized that the militant Antifa organization be designated as a domestic terrorist group.
This is critical, but they will simply go “under the radar.” It is truly a guerrilla terrorist group. We can act like it is not, but it exists whether we like it or not.
American citizens have witnessed a demonstration of rage against many people and much property, but much of the rage was misdirected into senseless and deadly violence. Much of the rage may have been pent up rage due to the loss of jobs and the sudden unemployment due to the prolongation of the shut down of “non-essential” businesses by various autocratic governors. Yet, it is clear that much of the violence was not a spontaneous outbreak of pent up rage, it was coordinated and well organized. In the wake of the rampages, President Trump authorized that the Antifa organization be designated as a domestic terrorist group.
My article today deals with the war that is raging, unbeknownst to many American citizens at this time. The war is for the Soul of America, and true citizen patriots are needed to arise, to arise, to speak up, and speak out in this time, and Christians and conservative voices need to ring out across the land. The Silent Majority can no longer be silent!
We are posting two pieces in today’s edition that come from serious people working for positive and lasting change in America. I personally told Bishop E.W. Jackson that we were posting the first part of his open letter to the black community. We will post the second part as it is created.
We are also posting in this edition a petition to the White House that has been posted on their open website. But, we are posting the unabridged version of this petition here for our readers to sign if they agree with the points. We also ask coalition members and allies to forward this brief petition to their members and for others to have their friends sign this as well. This is acting on our First Amendment rights as free citizens. It is something one can do, no matter if one is 18 or 80 + years of age. It is time to support the Land of the Free in a proactive way.
We also feature two relevant DefCon News contributions that delve into the recent political cries of the lawless to defund the police. This is a critical time in American history, and we hope our readers can keep their faith and can hold on to our self-evident truths and our God-given rights.
Again, we feature a good number of videos on a number of different topics – some cover the efforts to defund the police. But, there is one I would highly recommend and that is the one of Dennis Prager, “The Issue Is Values, Not Systemic Racism.”

Dear Fellow Americans (of African descent):
I write to you with great concern for the future of our country and the black community. Like most Americans, I too am angry over the killing of George Floyd. His death was a monstrous act, and former police officer Derek Chauvin deserves to have the full weight of the law brought against him. If the video we witnessed is accurate, Mr. Chauvin must be imprisoned for a long time.
However, my sadness reaches well beyond this single tragedy. The riots, looting and violence which have occurred in cities across the country will not reform, heal, unify or improve the lives and safety of black Americans. In fact, these actions are radically regressive and self-destructive.
Black businesses are burned down, the owners are assaulted and essential grocery stores and pharmacies are destroyed. Cops and innocent bystanders are victimized and killed. The irony is that the victims are primarily those for whom the rioters claim to be seeking justice. History teaches us that communities wracked by riots and looting do not recover easily, if at all. They tend to become more impoverished and dangerous than they were before the upheaval.
The War has Come – Agreement and Cooperation are ‘Essential’ Tasks in Reclaiming our Republic!
In July of last year, I offered a perspective in an article entitled ‘The Value of Agreement and Cooperation in the Coming War’. There are many in America who are aware we are in a war, and then there are many who are clueless with regard to such a perception. Such a statement is not intended to be judgmental of the clueless. But, for those still unaware of the war, recent events are good indications of major tremors or disruptions of the relative cultural calm and social fabric. But, it may be that only now, after all of the violence that has torn communities and the nation apart, more people are becoming fully cognizant of ‘the war.’ Nevertheless, there are also many who remain in denial, and for some it is on purpose, not because of cluelessness.
The United States has just been ravaged by the COVID-19 Pandemic, but possibly less due to the disease and more due to reactions based on theories of the potential harm to the society from a highly contagious and deadly disease. Now, citizens are witnessing an odd phenomenon of the protests and rioting dissipating the fears over COVID-19. Outbreaks of coronavirus should have occurred across the nation since the end of May. At least, this would have been the outcry if the protesters were Christians, conservatives or patriots marching in the streets and demanding momentary attention.
Petition: “As free citizens of the United States of America, it is our duty…”
“As free citizens of the United States of America, it is our duty…”
Dear CPR Patriots,
We are forwarding this petition that has been submitted to the White House website.
The Citizen Sentinels Network, as part of the Coalition for a Principled Republic, advocates signing this petition and even submitting it to current candidates running for office this year to determine if they truly support “We the People” and our Constitution.
Pelosi to Introduce Bill That Will End Law Enforcement for Good
Many on the left, including Bernie Sanders, are calling for the police in this country to be defunded. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats have one-upped these liberals by coming up with a bill that would effectively end the law enforcement profession for good. The House Speaker’s reaction to widespread violence is to get rid of all cops, which shows she is clearly on the side of criminals, and her agenda is to completely destroy America.
The Hill reports: Democrats on Monday will introduce wide-ranging legislation designed to combat racial inequities in the criminal justice system, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced Thursday.
The much awaited package, currently being crafted by members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), will feature provisions designed to eliminate racial profiling, rein in the excessive use of police force and repeal the so-called qualified immunity doctrine for law enforcers, which protects individual officers from lawsuits over actions they perform while on duty.
Bernie Sanders and the Left’s Demand to Defund the Police
When local and state governments, as well as police departments, were enforcing unconstitutional coronavirus lockdown orders, Democrats supported stripping Americans of their rights because they want to tank the economy to get rid of President Trump. Now that local and state governments as well as police departments are enforcing constitutional anti-looting and rioting laws, suddenly Democrats are screaming that Americans’ rights are being violated. Bernie Sanders is demanding that police agencies, which don’t let people burn cities down, be defunded.
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 are growing and we are now offering one more news day edition, and we are also offering a Sunday edition with a focus on 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!
