CSN Newsletter 7/14/2020 – America in Danger!
From Our Founder…
As America struggles with the persistence of COVID-19, “We the People” need to recognize that there is an even greater virus or national threat to our nation. It can be observed as the spread of distorted and displaced anger disguised as a movement for justice, and the spread of resentment and hatred disguised as vindication of oppressed people. It is very much like a virus in that anyone can be infected, and many are. The cause of such an illness is cultural and political propaganda that is being pumped out almost non-stop by those on the Left and by globalists with their own nefarious agendas to claim America. And, propaganda is just a big academic word for lies.
There is only one inoculation that will work against lies – both small and large. Jesus in his time on this planet made the remedy for lies very clear. He simply prescribed to know the truth, for the truth would set one free.
Yet, the nation we live in is beginning to resemble some of the realities that existed in the world of the Roman Empire. When he was arrested and was forced to go before Pontius Pilate, Jesus told the representative of Caesar that he came into the world to bear witness to the truth. Pilate was not able to wrap his mind around the concept. His truth in his world was relative, and such truth was deemed truth by whoever could force another to accept their truth.
Americans celebrated Independence Day two weekends ago. The birthday of the United States was less of a party this year and more introspective for many. It would have been a good use of a portion of that weekend to determine what truths American people are truly holding on to in this turbulent time. Many Americans are living in fear and are uncertain about the future of the nation. In order to remain a free people, citizens need now to honestly and sincerely reaffirm within themselves what truths are self-evident and whether they truly support our God-given rights. Once the affirmations are made, practicing what we believe in in the next brave and bold steps. This happened 244 years ago, and it led to the birth of the Land of the Free. We all need to embrace the truth, for the truth will allow us to remain in freedom.
This week, CSN Executive Editor, Don Rosenberg is on vacation, so this edition is a test of whether CSN can pull it off while he is away. He is also the Layout Editor, who prepares the newsletter in its final version before sending it off across the country to our state distributors.

Today is the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, a public holiday in France more casually referred to as Bastille Day. My article today deals with the comparisons that can be made between the mob violence that resulted in the taking of the Bastille and mob violence that resulted in the murders of innocent Americans, the destruction of private property and businesses in cities across America, and the ripping down of statues to help Americans remember what we had to get through to get here today.
Bonnie Parsley’s article follows through with an examination of the root of the rioting by the anarchists, Antifa, and BLM terrorists. Her warning is appropriate: “Let the young people know that their freedom can be taken away, and there will be nothing they can do about it if socialists take control.”
Dr. Robert Owens offers a broader and deeper perspective regarding the proclamation that the POTUS made to the United Nations in September of 2019 – CSN provided a link to that speech in our edition from 9.24.19 (see footnote below for a link to an article with a video segment). Dr. Owens uses President Trump’s words from that time to put the present into perspective in light of Trump’s proclamation to the world.
Hitting the nail on the head and summing up the beliefs and aspirations of millions President Trump said, “The future does not belong to globalists the future belongs to patriots. The future belongs to sovereign and independent nations who protect their citizens, respect their neighbors, and honor the differences that make each country special and unique.
Writer Michael Lewinski cuts right to the chase with his brief article on “Progressive Bloodlust.” He has some cogent points, but offers genuine guidance in his words: “We must discern right from wrong. We need to listen to the conscience with which the Holy Spirit endowed us. We need to listen to the better angels within us.”
Last, but in now way least, we feature an article from guest writer, A. Dru Kristenev, whose article is entitled: “Have we been had? Unmasking the disease delusion,” and examines the dangerous illusion surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. She concludes that “It adds up to a monumental deception that is stripping Americans, not to mention other nations, of personal freedom.”
Please take time to read our five best articles for today. However, we also recommend the videos we present links with which to connect to some very relevant videos of these past few days and some from the past for your review. The article from last September’s edition features a brief video clip of that time. It is worth reviewing.

BLM Violence Reminiscent of the Storming of the Bastille
By: Dennis Jamison on Jul 13, 2020
Today is the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, a public holiday in France more casually referred to as Bastille Day. This dramatic event in French history is looked on with as much respect and reverence in France as Americans view the colonists taking on the British troops in the “shot heard ‘round the world.” However, contrary to the romanticized image, the people that seized the Bastille were not endowed with altruistic ideals and tempered by principled actions. They were motivated by fear, as well as primitive desires to unleash pent-up anger and frustration. Also, more practical concerns by “shadow” leaders aimed to seize any weapons the mob could capture.
Actually, comparisons between recent mob violence of Antifa and the militant faction of the Black Lives Matter mobs and the mob violence of Paris in the summer of 1789 are appropriate. Young anarchists and older hardened leaders of these organized mobs would likely look upon their own violence as necessary for the “revolution.” The intent behind their violence may have similar roots in the intent behind the storming of the Bastille. Nevertheless, the comparison between the violence of the mobs and the violence initiated by the colonists in what escalated into the War for Independence, is overly simplistic and betrays an ignorance of history.
America in Crisis
By: Bonnie Parsley – 7/12/2020
Mobs burning down businesses, defacing monuments, tearing down statues, dishonoring our national heroes just because of the color of their skin. America is in crisis! Where does all this anger and hatred for America come from? It doesn’t take a lot of study to understand that our schools and our media have indoctrinated our kids for fifty years or more. They are no longer told about the sacrifice our ancestors made to establish this country. They are not given an appreciation for the unique ideals of freedom that has led to innovation, invention, and prosperity for more people than has been created in any other nation in history.
The divide between political ideologies has become so great, we must ask ourselves if we headed for a second Civil War. Our largest cities have become ungovernable. Police are demonized and not supported by the Democrat leadership in those cities. Criminals are given the nod to continue their rioting, looting and destruction. Nancy Pelosi simply said, “People are going to do what people do.” There is no condemnation by any officials in the Democrat Party.
It is clear that Democrats have become the far Left Party. They want to fundamentally change the country into something that we will not recognize. The words in the Declaration of Independence guaranteeing the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness will disappear. Government will control every aspect of life, if this comes to pass.
By: Michael J. Lewinski – 7/11/2020
When we are at our lowest point as a country, that is when we as a people are at our best. We are not quite there yet, but we are close to shucking off the evil bloodlust Progressives have brought to us.
“With their “political correctness,” Progressives are agitating for a race war. They are pitting minorities against whites. It’s worked for a long time, but it’s losing its bite. People are beginning to understand race is only skin deep. Underneath there is the one creature created by God. He does not recognize color as He expects us to not see differences in color.
People are beginning to see the light and accepting the common sense of conservative thinking that recognizes that all people are created equal in God’s eyes. All individuals are entitled to life, liberty, and their pursuit of happiness.
Our Future Belongs to Patriots Not Globalists
By Dr. Robert R. Owens –July 13, 2020
On September 24, 2019 in the U.N. General Assembly: the seedbed of globalism, President Trump gave a major address charting a prosperous future for countries the world over, which is one built on the empowerment of citizens and respect for national sovereignty.
Standing in the spotlight of attention from the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media and staring down the glares from the New World Order fanatics, our President zeroed in on the basic problems that have been seeping out of the UN and festering around the world for generations. He didn’t equivocate. He didn’t pull any punches, stating boldly, “Globalism exerted a religious pull over past leaders, causing them to ignore their own national interests.”
Under the Bush-Clinton-Obama CABAL, before the miracle in November that gave us President Trump, our leaders like many others around the world, spent the bulk of their time and energy catering to the opinions of fellow global elites. Lost in the shuffle of this groupthink, in-crowd popularity contest were the interests of the hard-working, over-taxed, and under-appreciated people who built this country and keep it going.
Have we been had? Unmasking the disease delusion
By A. Dru Kristenev – July 10, 2020
As states hunker down once again, forcing citizens to don face coverings in public, it’s become clearer with every waking hour that the China Coronavirus emergency is based on skewed and distorted statistics.
Anecdotal stories of false reporting of Covid-19 cases are a dime a dozen. Personally, the incident described in my last column, where a woman with seasonal allergies was reported as a positive case by a doctor who didn’t bother to listen to her, turned out to be exactly what has been pooh-poohed by the mainstream press. The patient was forced to undergo testing for the virus which confirmed that she was negative, yet did that change her being tallied as a positive case? No. Once a health professional (and I apply the term loosely) makes a report of a positive case, based on no evidence whatsoever, there is no recanting and subtracting that individual from the compiled statistics.
