Citizen Sentinels Newsletter – 2/26/2019
From Our Founder…
This issue of the Citizen Sentinels Network newsletter focuses most of the articles on the tragedy of abortion, as this divisive issue is increasingly gaining momentum among decent people across the nation. Unfortunately, the recent rejection in the Senate of “The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (Senate bill S.311) demonstrates that the momentum has not yet impacted the minds of the U.S. Senators. This is indeed a tragedy that needs to be seriously addressed on an ever increasing coordinated effort by the true patriots of America!
The vote was primarily along party lines. Jason Yates of My Faith Votes had sent an appeal to those his organization is connected with, and his message will be posted in this issue. Also, a few of these articles are from our volunteer grassroots citizen-journalists who chose to provide their sentiments on this horrendous issue. One of the articles featured is from Olivia Reid, and the original article was written in early February and distributed as a message via our David Project; it is reposted for our CSN readers as it is quite appropriate in this issue.
Additionally, our friends over at USA.Life are officially launching their social media site tomorrow as an alternative to Facebook. Please check out the brief promotional piece on the launch. The founder, Steven Andrew, is a personal friend, and his desire is to provide a social platform that is pro-American! What a concept! But, it is now a reality – please take some time to check this new challenge to the Facebook monopoly!
Please know that the Citizen Sentinels Network will continue to offer a genuine platform for the true American citizens to exercise their First Amendment rights, no matter what race, religion, or country of origin. Americans need to reflect deeply on how much they love the United States, our traditions, our history, our culture, and our borders. We the People need to stand up and speak out!
In recent days, Christians have watched helplessly as liberal lawmakers across the country have aggressively pushed to protect and expand abortion access. Millions were shocked beyond belief to hear lawmakers even advocating for post-birth abortion — infanticide!
That’s why the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is the most important piece of legislation in a generation. The bill would guarantee that any child born alive in the context of an abortion would be provided full legal protection as a living human being and that medical treatment must be provided to attempt to save the child’s life. There is currently no federal law which requires medical professionals to provide treatment for children born alive after attempted abortions.
The Whole of a Matter; the Beginning of Life

Virginia tried. New York succeeded. New Mexico, Colorado, Vermont and four others have no gestational limits for abortion. Perhaps it’s not too late to revisit an old debate that led us to where we are today.
When does life begin?
Imagine being in a delivery room and delivering a woman in labor who part way through decides, “I just can’t do this. I want an abortion.”
So, the doctor must change course and procedure midway. This is no longer a lifesaving mission: that mission is now aborted. The Hippocratic oath is somehow twisted and there is license for a life-saving doctor to become a mechanic of death. All this because of House Bill 2491, now on the table in Virginia.
What are New York Democrats celebrating?
New York’s Reproductive Health Act (RHA) will increase abortions and legalize infanticide.

On the forty-sixth anniversary of the Roe V. Wade decision, Governor Cuomo signed into law an abortion bill that had been blocked by Republicans since 2007. It was passed by the new Democratic majority in the senate without a single Republican vote.
Democrats gave a standing ovation, clapping, and cheering as the bill was signed into law as if they were attending the Super Bowl. Governor Cuomo gave a brash “victory speech” in which he joyfully announced, “Today we are taking a giant step forward in the hard-fought battle to ensure a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her own personal health, including the ability to access an abortion.”
Cuomo directed One World Trade Center to be lit in pink “to shine a bright light forward for the rest of the nation to follow.” It is appalling that a memorial to people who lost their lives, including pregnant women and unborn babies, would be lit up to celebrate the right to kill babies.
The Dark Party
By Mike Lewinski
It’s utterly amazing that we are involved in such a deeply complex society. Just consider American society; it is a land blessed with great wealth. Much of that wealth is in the hands of only a few people. This elite group of people has many conflicting agendas.
There are trillions of dollars available to private interests. Imagine what the good guys and the bad guys could do with those resources. Various foundations on both the left and right are engaged in a war to determine the bent of our society. You are witnessing a choice between the ideas of Karl Marx and the ideas of Thomas Jefferson.
A capitalist system is based upon how well you serve your customers, while a socialist system is based upon greed. In a capitalist system, free people serve each other, which promotes prosperity. In a Marxist system, you have a corrupt totalitarian regime with the few at the top ending up with most of the wealth. One does not have to look far to find these failures. Cuba and Venezuela are the closest.
The party that represents Marxist ideology are the Democrats controlled by Progressives. The parties that represent Jeffersonian thought are the Republican and Librarian parties. With all of the manipulation of public opinion, how can you trust what’s being presented to you?
A Domestic Enemy Aiding and Abetting the Destruction of America!
by Dennis Jamison 2/26/19
As the nation is in the midst of sorting out the “National Emergency” that President Donald Trump declared recently, a myriad of reactions have flooded into the public eye. Lawsuits, and legal barriers, and clever commentators galore have been directed against the president’s declaration. Yet, one thing seems to be quite clear – all the ones fighting the president are the ones who are denying there is any emergency. Yet, those denying that there is a national emergency, are the ones who are fomenting it.
The national emergency in the United States in 2019 is the cancer of division within the nation, and it has been growing inside the nation from the time of the American Civil War. The national emergency that exists today must not be limited to the Border Wall that has become more than a dividing barrier between nations – it has divided American citizens amongst themselves. The national emergency is not only a foreign enemy that would like to breach the nation’s borders. But, the broader national emergency is the domestic enemy within the U.S. that is also adept at aiding and abetting the enemies of the nation. Rush Limbaugh recently made public his assertion that the real national emergency is the covert coup attempt at taking over the presidency.
The coup attempt, however, is just the most brazen of the multitude of criminal activities the “Democratic” Party leaders have proven themselves capable of perpetrating. There should be no question whether the current Democrat leadership has fomented a national emergency in America – it is unclear just how extensive the damage may be. Many Americans can trace the origins back to a number of possible starting points. Yet, the “Democratic” Party has consistently demonstrated that the Party values do not align with the founding principles of the U.S.A.
Not a Spectator Sport

As expected, Progressives are trying to obstruct President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency in order to move ahead with building a wall on our Southern border. They are attempting to stop it through litigation in the courts, with 16 states joining the effort. This is what MoveOn reported happened on Monday: 277 events. 48 states. At least 50,000 attendees. They raise money off of it and call on their allies to demonstrate in the streets in hundreds of cities.
A larger effort is being made to proclaim his order is based upon a false crisis — a made up crisis. They claim there is no crisis on the border and do not see the violence committed against Americans by illegal aliens as real. They turn their back on the American drug deaths which are facilitated by drugs smuggled across our Southern border. They turn a blind eye to the human trafficking coming across our Southern border; dismissing all of this as just one big hoax.
USA.Life Launches! Hopes To Challenge the Facebook Monopoly!
Throughout 2018, social media giants came under serious scrutiny from the federal government. It was especially significant that millions of people all over the world were extremely concerned with the data breach of sensitive personal information off of Facebook via Cambridge Analytica as a way of profiling American voters. Facebook has become a questionable social media vehicle on an ever-increasing pace throughout 2019, yet people had little choice if they wanted to utilize the technology offered by this social media monopoly. And, since it only portrays itself as a public service for all (for all except genuine Christians, honest conservatives, and true patriots), it has increasingly lost value in the eyes of many Americans.
Nevertheless, though several alternatives to such social media monopolies have been attempted, the one that may offer the most hope as a David against the Goliath is USA.Life. This Wednesday the social media challenger is launching and will be ramping up. The concept behind the new social media platform is to elevate the social media arena into a next generation of social media outlets. It is the intent of founder Steven Andrew to provide a genuine alternative to Christians and conservatives who suffer censorship on Facebook or Twitter.
The hope is that all Christians and conservatives would want to take a hike away from the “Facebook Farm” and get behind such a grassroots effort – like a “walk away” from Facebook censorship and “freedom filters.”
