CSN Newsletter 8/20/2020, Civil War part 2, DNC Snoozer, Post Office scandal – not!, How to Talk to a Liberal

From Our Founder…

As the virtual “Democratic” National Convention proceeded into the week, those who did watch the television coverage seemed to be the loyal followers. We offer a number of links to coverage of the convention for those who are interested. Most readers who are paying any attention to the news could probably predict the scripting that would emerge from this event.

Apparently, from a Front Page Magazine article in our “Recommended Reading” section, the title explains it all: “Reruns of Network Programs Had More Viewers Than DNC Night 2” so it is an indication of the level of interest regarding the Democrats in 2020.

It is more than obvious that the “Democratic” Party is struggling to maintain a cohesive presence and some relevance at this point in U.S. history. There are flashes below the now fading of the normally polished veneer that there is an internal civil war raging within the Party, despite all of the outward appearances. If one looks carefully, the Party seems to be splitting at the seams of the all encompassing umbrella. The network of identity groups that compose the juggernaut are no longer so unified, so “indivisible.” Christians, conservatives, and patriots need to maintain the heart of courage and strong faith. “We the People” need to unite and work and vote to keep our Republic. 

Speaking of the health of the Republic, CSN news is launching a new feature in these last weeks before the election. It is called “Around the Republic” and it will feature news from all around the nation that will help readers and viewers keep up with relevant events in other cities and states. The purpose is to help bring Americans closer to one another in mind and heart. 

If readers have articles from their states they would like to submit for our review, please do so and we will provide links to relevant articles in your region. After all, we’re all in this together! You can use this link to share a local story.

Today, we offer the second part of an article from Dr. James Dobson, the founder of Focus on the Family. He presents a historical comparison between what is going on in the United States in our time with what happened in the election year of 1860. Due to its length, we offered the good doctor’s article in two parts. We hope readers appreciate the historical clarity of his article. Today’s part includes an excellent summary of eight reasons that Christians should vote in November. Share it with your friends of all faiths.

Dr. Dobson’s article was from another site, but we picked it up from the MyFaithVotes website, which is a good site to become familiar with in this election year with all sorts of services to make voting easy. Readers can access the entire article from Dr. Dobson via this link: https://www.myfaithvotes.org/articles/americas-civil-wars-then-and-now

Guest contributor Judi McLeod, senior journalist and Editor of Canada Free Press, provides a report on the election battle front from Wednesday night. Her article is a strong one and truly expresses the genuine spirit of Canada Free Press. It is definitely worth the read.

We also offer another message from the MyFaithVotes website from our friend, Audrea Decker. This week is the anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment, which was ratified on Aug. 18, 1920, after passage through Congress on June 4, 1919. Ms. Decker’s article is about this centennial event.

It is our pleasure to present another article from writer Jack Meyer, who was one of the original writers on our team during the Dr. Ben Carson campaign. Today he examines the insidious Democrat insinuation that there is a scandal with regard to the U.S. Post Office. Jack Meyer’s article knocks such a concept out into the stratosphere. 

Executive Editor, Don Rosenberg, offers another article today regarding Liberals, but instead of acknowledging the hatred in them, his question is one for all of us: “Can we learn to talk with Liberals?” He discusses loving your enemy from a biblical as well as psychological point of view. 

Again, we want to call readers attention to one of our contributors, Dr. Robert Owens, new book. Check it out here: https://drrobertowens.com/2020/08/17/dr-owens-newest-book-5/

America’s Civil Wars – Then and Now (Part 2)

By Dr. James Dobson, 8/10/2020

…During the revolution of the 1960s, I recall a ubiquitous bumper sticker that read, “What if they gave a war and nobody came?” It was a catchy phrase that made sense to those who opposed the Vietnam War. But my reaction to it then and now is “What if they gave a war and only one side came?” That question keeps me awake at night.

There are multiple millions of passive Americans out there today, many of them Christians, who are clueless about what is happening to their homeland. They are losing something precious and irreplaceable. Do they not understand that their children and those who are yet to be born will live in tyranny if we fail them on our watch? Countless young men and women have laid down their lives on battlefields around the world to protect liberty and our way of life. Now, what they purchased for us with their blood is slipping away.

Disengaged people won’t lift a finger to preserve this great land. They won’t take even a few minutes to go to their polling places to vote. There are also thousands of pastors who won’t allow voting registration tables in the lobbies of their churches. Don’t they know or care that America is on the ropes? Hordes of angry anarchists are salivating over the next election, hoping to push America over a cliff. If they succeed, as Newt Gingrich said, Western civilization will never recover. Is there anyone left who believes some things are worth dying for?

There’s Just No Way Around It, ‘Because Without America There Is No Free World’

By Judi McLeod —- August 20, 2020

It was Gang-Up Time at the Democrat Convention last night. Gang-Up Time for hate-filled, vengeful big 2016 losers Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, who waited four years to get even, not just with the successfully elusive president—but the 63 million and still growing people who voted him in.

All but the most gullible among us knew last night was coming, just as most know that Desperado Dems will come up with anything they can to rig the 2020 Election—sometime between today and November 3.

For the Democrats, the timing couldn’t have possibly been more perfect: a captive audience on home, church and business lockdown, forced to wear face masks on the threat of fines and in some places—even arrest—even with a pandemic in visible decline.

19th Amendment Centennial: Women Have the Right to Vote for What They Believe

By Audrea Decker, 8/18/2020

One hundred years ago, on Aug. 18, 1920, women in America received the hard-won constitutional right to vote. The newly ratified 19th Amendment declared, “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.”

Just a handful of decades later, women were leading the charge at the voting booth. According to data from Rutgers University’s Center for American Women and Politics, “The number of female voters has exceeded the number of male voters in every presidential election since 1964.” And there’s no reason for us to expect the November 2020 elections to be any different, especially since this year is another historic first for women in politics.

US Post Office: The Trump Conspiracy de jour

by Jack Meyer, 8/18/2020

Let’s see, there was the Russia hoax… that was proven false. Then there was the Ukraine phone call hoax. The US House got an impeachment vote out of that, but the Senate didn’t buy it, nor did most of the American people… plus the timing wasn’t right to impact the election. So the Democrats now cry that President Trump has totally blown the COVID-19 pandemic.  That doesn’t seem to be gaining traction either.

So, here is one last ditch effort to hang a scandal around the President’s neck. The Post Office scandal!

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have all Democrats singing from the same songbook. President Trump is defunding the Post Office so that Mail-in votes can’t be counted this Fall.   He is rigging the election!

Let’s explore this for a moment. The Post Office has NOT been defunded. The Post Office is not funded by the US Government but by the sale of postage. It is intended to be self-sustaining.

Can we learn to talk with Liberals?

By Don Rosenberg 8/12/2020

Many of us can’t believe how hateful political rhetoric has become in our country.  How can we even talk with people from “the other side,” much less change their minds?

A lot of research has been done showing how hatred can actually become an addiction.  People get a chemical rush from anger and reinforce it by communicating with like-minded individuals on social media.

In his sermon this past Sunday, a Charlotte pastor touched on the subject of “dealing with your enemies” from the Biblical perspective.  He and his congregation had spent the last year going through the book of Romans and was now in Romans 12: 14-21 (ASV)

Bless them that persecute you; bless, and curse not.  Rejoice with them that rejoice; weep with them that weep.  Be of the same mind one toward another.  Set not your mind on high things, but condescend to things that are lowly.  Be not wise in your own conceits.  Render to no man evil for evil.

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 offer two news editions, and we also offer a Sunday edition with a focus on more 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!

Please remember to share the articles of the writers whose perspectives you appreciate. Spread the articles around to those whom you care about. Also, if you have relevant or serious feedback, please submit it. We appreciate your viewpoint as well.

Tell us about your most important issues. Or volunteer to support our efforts to bring honest and common sense to busy Christians and conservatives as writing staff or on our Social Media Team.
