CSN Newsletter 7/23/2020 – America Needs 2020 Vision
From Our Founder…
Today here in mid-July, it seems that America is facing three major threats: 1) the new wave of the COVID-19 (whenever that manifests); 2) the Marxist insurgency on America’s city streets; and 3) The looming threat of China and other adversaries around the world who would like nothing more than to topple the government of the United States. Is that all? Well, yes, there is a national election that is occurring in 2020.
Although it may escape many, there are extraordinary citizens who see that the source of all of these threats originate from global Communism, but more specifically from Communist China. It may be a hard realization to swallow, but Americans need the vision to see that all of the major threats that America is facing today can be traced back to the rise of Communism in the world from its beginnings from Karl Marx.
Most Americans do not understand Marxism, or Leninism, or Stalinism, or Maoism. And that is why most cannot see the threads that bind current events to the different levels and branches of Communism. However, the biggest obstacle is not about seeing it. The biggest obstacle citizens have is discerning what is currently happening is getting past the stigma of the Joseph McCarthy era and the image of a “witch hunt” and the overkill of hunting for Communists under every bed. The cloak of such a stigma has hidden Communist activity in America since that time. And Americans willfully did not see what was happening as the efforts unfolded over the decades. It is imperative that Americans who love this nation awaken, arise, and act now, while citizens still have some of their God-given rights left.
Americans have been wallowing in relative freedom since the nation’s inception, and this is partly why it is so hard to awaken from such a wonderful insulated environment. But, since 9/11, the world’s suffering has been infused into our nation. There are extraordinary citizens who get it. Those citizens also realize that they need to contribute or work to be part of the solution, and not retreat to “safe spaces.” There are truly few safe places. Tuesday, I explained that “there are few places to where one can escape to as a way of avoiding involvement in this war for America’s soul.” Citizens need to act according to the dictates of their own conscience. One first step is to clear away the pollution of the propaganda — which leads to confusion of the mind. Educate yourselves, discern between right and wrong. Support the good – ignore the bad, or eliminate the bad as best as possible. Help drain the Swamp; but, remember to replace it with the good.
Today, my article touches the surface of the bad in America, “stuff” that corrupt people have been getting away with for a long time. Deception, confusion, diversion and destruction have existed for some time in America. It is tough to digest, but difficult to explain coherently in other ways.
We also offer an excerpt from a lengthy article from Howard Self, the leader of Right to Believe, who writes an update on the D.C. Superior Court case involving a minority religion and another travesty of justice within the corrupt D.C. judicial Swamp, as well as the corruption within the D.C. Commission on Judicial Disabilities and Tenure, which was established to provide honest review of judicial misconduct. It provides a bit more detail of how ongoing corruption in D.C. is able to self-perpetuate in a cesspool of corruption. The full article can be read by following this link.
Today, we provide a number of perspectives on the great mask vs. no mask debate, with even a video of a Trump press conference in which he comments on the issue. DefCon contributors offer an article which covers Diane Feinstein’s threat to mandate masks everywhere. One wonders where she was when Antifa and BLM terrorists were rampaging through the cities of Democrat mayors. Here is a key part of their coverage:
“Wearing masks in public should be mandatory. Period… The situation is getting worse daily. Several states, including California, Alabama and Montana already require masks in public. This should be universal… My hope has been that other governors would show the leadership to institute their own mask mandates, but so far that hasn’t happened. It’s time for Congress to step in. This is a matter of life or death, and partisan politics shouldn’t play a role.
Michael Lewinski, who is a resident of red state Indiana, may be surprised as his state as well as Ohio just mandated the wearing of masks. His article today advises us all to “Escape the Tyranny’ of the mandates from autocratic governors as he reviews some of the harsh restrictions of the blue states.
Executive Editor Don Rosenberg provides a review of conservative writer Steve Sheldon’s optimistic and thought-provoking article in Townhall, “The Only Poll That Matters.”
Last but not least, we offer a piece of someone’s mind from a reader who sent this to us, which may be circulating social media. It is from someone struggling like we all are with the loss of common sense: “HAVE WE LOST OUR COLLECTIVE MIND?”
We also have a special recommendation to view the very first video on our list. It is eye opening; yet, it illuminates that which is often obscured by those we rely on to keep us informed.
The BLM-Biden-Obama Bandwagon
By Dennis Jamison –July 23, 2020
If Joe Biden is the best the Democrat Party has to offer their constituents as the best candidate for POTUS, Democrats are in serious trouble. But, are they?
This may sound confusing, so follow me carefully.
Except for the seemingly endless investigations into the Deep State coup d’état, and except for the recent autocracy of Democrat governors of states imposing their unconstitutional lockdown mandates on their residents, and except for the major ineptitude of the Democrat mayors of major cities in the United States in handling, or enabling, the Marxist insurrection currently underway, it seems their candidate may be doing just fine. He may be the best foot forward for the Democrats in 2020. Those concerned with his apparent ineptitude and grip on reality must look at the bigger picture.
Joe Biden is safe – no chance of being exposed to COVID-19, as he is just like many others who are just average Americans; just an average Joe who is safer in his basement – under lockdown orders from a Democrat leader. He is also easy to “handle” – he represents average Americans who really do not know too much about the economy, or politics, or even reality for that matter. In fact, Joe Biden may resemble his nationwide constituents in several vital ways. He certainly will listen to and believe all that the mainstream media expect him to believe about their news reporting. And, if he gets confused about the true words of the Declaration of Independence, the MSM will bail him out. In fact, it is in their job description to bail out any and all Democrat leaders. So, no real problem with Joe Biden running for POTUS, come to think of it.
D.C. Superior Court System in Dire Need of Reform
By Howard C. Self – 7.20.20
July 20 (UPI) — Across the United States, a groundswell of alarm is rising among people of faith as judges increasingly disregard their First Amendment rights.
Legal challenges to religious expression began with attacks on displays — a manger scene here, an outsize cross erected after one of the world wars there. The assault on religious freedom then escalated to attacks on the personal actions of individuals striving to live according to their religious convictions — a Christian cake baker here, a high school football coach who dared to pray after the game there.
This fast-growing national legion of concerned citizens will no doubt be deeply concerned by the dangerous precedents being set in a case before the Washington, D.C. Superior Court.
Feinstein Threatens to Block Coronavirus Relief to States That Don’t Mandate Masks
by Def Con News – 7/16/2020
Liberals were against masks before they were for them. Now they’re on a power trip to force everyone to wear masks despite there being zero evidence they do anything to stop the transition of the coronavirus. Congress is working on another coronavirus relief packag, and, if Dianne Feinstein has her way, any states that don’t mandate mask wearing will be cut out. In other words, if you live in a state that respects your rights, the California democrat thinks you don’t deserve any money.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said states that refuse to mandate face masks should be cut off from federal funds because they are putting the public health of Americans at risk.
Feinstein said she’ll offer an amendment to upcoming Senate coronavirus relief legislation to block money to states that have resisted a mask mandate.
Escape The Tyranny
By Michael J. Lewinski – 7/20/2020
What is happening in our churches in America? The governor of California has ordered places of worship to limit their services to no more than 25% of their congregations. Even more shocking is his order to neither sing nor chant during the services. So now the government of California not only wants to limit your ability to participate in church services, but also to stop you from singing and chanting. Songs and chants of various creeds and reciting the Lord’s prayer are out of bounds for the faithful.
What is most shocking is that pastors and congregants are agreeing to go along with this nonsense. We have to question why they would abandon the heart of their services. Perhaps it’s because they are no longer the salt and light of the earth. They have lost their way. These churches are no longer Spirit filled. They have abandoned the great commission. The Holy Spirit no longer inhabits their churches.
Forget Fake Polls
by Don Rosenberg, 7/23/2020
Steve Sheldon is a conservative writer and gun enthusiast from the Midwest. His Tuesday article in Townhall, “The Only Poll That Matters,” was a new take on political polling, specifically the fake polls meant to demoralize conservatives so they just give up and stay home in November. We all know the tricks pollsters use, oversampling Democrats and undersampling Republicans, polling “Adults” or “Registered Voters” instead of likely voters, and sculpting questions to skew the results. Instead of trying to make sense out of statistical garbage, Sheldon looks at an entirely different set of data – new gun purchases.
“It’s a poll that encompasses the old adage of “putting your money where your mouth is.” Where are Americans putting their money? They’re buying guns by the truckload. The only poll that matters right now is gun sales.”
Sheldon points out that first-time gun owners are making a conscious decision that you and your family’s lives and property are in jeopardy and you are now willing to spend a considerable amount of money to defend them.
Have We Lost Our Collective Mind?
I’m not starting a fight, but it’s something to think about. This may open up a ton of outraged comments by some. Many who will argue how “wrong” this post is. My suggestion, save your time and effort! You’re not changing the reality of what we are living by trying to somehow justify this insanity. Nevertheless, I couldn’t resist because we are becoming the Twilight Zone. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!
- If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.
- Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.
- Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.
- It was cool for Joe Biden to “blackmail” the President of Ukraine, but it’s an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.
- Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.
