Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) slammed the Biden administration during a Fox News interview over the weekend, saying that the administration had repeatedly lied to the American people about scandals that are unfolding under its watch.

Gabbard made the remarks during an interview with Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night that focused on the border crisis and other issues that the administration is facing, including the pandemic, the Afghanistan debacle, and schools.

“The faith and trust that the American people need to have in our leaders are dropping every day,” Gabbard said. “The Department of Homeland Security Secretary recently told Congress our borders are secure. This is what he said, this kind of bald-faced lie whether it has to do with domestic issues or foreign policy issues.”

“We’ve seen this with Afghanistan and the tragically botched withdrawal of our troops and Americans out of Afghanistan when people are being lied to, the American people are being lied to, it is revealing of the arrogance, and the self-serving nature of leaders who are in power in this country,” she continued. “And the disrespect, the disrespect that they have for the American people, and it’s why people are losing faith and trust in those leaders. If we have leaders who respect the people, then the people will respect our leaders. If we have leaders who trust the American people, we will trust our leaders. And that’s the problem here is we don’t have leaders who have that trust and respect and who therefore put themselves ahead of the interests of the people.”https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&features=eyJ0ZndfZXhwZXJpbWVudHNfY29va2llX2V4cGlyYXRpb24iOnsiYnVja2V0IjoxMjA5NjAwLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X2hvcml6b25fdHdlZXRfZW1iZWRfOTU1NSI6eyJidWNrZXQiOiJodGUiLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X3NwYWNlX2NhcmQiOnsiYnVja2V0Ijoib2ZmIiwidmVyc2lvbiI6bnVsbH19&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1447372178182135811&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fsimplypatriot.com%2Fpolitics%2Fwatch-tulsi-gabbard-sounds-the-alarm-on-the-biden-administration%2F%3Futm_source%3Dgoogle%26utm_medium%3Dsm%26utm_campaign%3Dtlg_wac&sessionId=5147888658bd60879b2425bf44bf2297c870769a&theme=light&widgetsVersion=fcb1942%3A1632982954711&width=550px

Southwest Cancels Hundreds of Flights, Denies It’s Due to Massive Pilot Vax Protest

Maga News 2020

Southwest’s pilot association denied a sick-out in a news release issued Saturday which said, “SWAPA is aware of operational difficulties affecting Southwest Airlines today due to a number of issues, but we can say with confidence that our Pilots are not participating in any official or unofficial job actions.”

The pilot’s association filed a lawsuit against the company on Friday, requesting that a federal court block the company’s ability to mandate the vaccine. They argue it violates the Railway Labor Act, according to Bloomberg.

The Railway Labor Act sets guidelines for relations between unions and airlines.

The Biden administration put out rules for airline employees to get the vaccine, as they have contracts with the federal government. Most major airlines are complying with the guidance.

“The new vaccine mandate unlawfully imposes new conditions of employment and the new policy threatens termination of any pilot not fully vaccinated by December 8, 2021,” the filing said, according to Bloomberg.

“Southwest Airlines’ additional new and unilateral modification of the parties’ collective bargaining agreement is in clear violation of the RLA.”

The airline cited weather and air traffic control issues for their sweeping cancellations and even dismissed concerns that staff was protesting its newly imposed vaccine mandate, which went along with Biden administration guidance.

“It’s inaccurate,” a Southwest spokeswoman said in an email, according to CNBC.  “There’s a lot of unfounded rumor and speculation circulating.”

Yet, the Federal Aviation Association said that there were no staffing shortages being reported for air traffic control and that the weather concerns in Florida were minimal. In addition, other airlines were not experiencing delays and cancellations on the same scale.

“No FAA air traffic staffing shortages have been reported since Friday. Flight delays & cancellations occurred for a few hours Friday PM due to widespread severe weather, military training, & limited staffing in one area of the Jacksonville en route center,” the government agency tweeted Sunday.

It seems that Southwest is poorly attempting damage control for the internal issues that they are facing with the mandate, and their customers who had flights this Columbus Day weekend certainly took note.

Joe Biden’s illegal vaccine mandate at work!

If the pilots are really taking action against the vaccine mandate, they should be applauded, as it will likely be tough for people who simply do not want the shot to claim a medical or religious exemption.

Incidents like these will continue to occur if legal action is not taken against these contentious mandates. The entire economy will presumably take a hit as a result.

Trump Denies Biden’s Demand, Sets Stage for Massive Court Battle

Maga News 2020

Former President Donald Trump will not give President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats what they want.

Trump on Friday fired his first salvo in what likely will be a long legal fight to protect his presidential records from Democrats who have set up a commission to investigate the Jan. 6 Capitol incursion.

Trump has demanded in a letter to the National Archives that it not release records to the panel due to legal issues “including but not limited to the presidential communications, deliberative process, and attorney-client privileges.”

Trump followed that by calling the situation a political “game,” according to the New York Post.

“The Radical Left Democrats tried the RUSSIA Witch Hunt, they tried the fake impeachments, and now they are trying once again to use Congress to persecute their political opponents. Their requests are not based in law or reality—it’s just a game to these politicians,” Trump said in a statement.

“The Democrats are drunk on power, but this dangerous assault on our Constitution and important legal precedent will not work.

“This Committee’s fake investigation is not about January 6th any more than the Russia Hoax was about Russia. Instead, this is about using the power of the government to silence ‘Trump’ and our Make America Great Again movement, the greatest such achievement of all time.”

White House Counsel Dana Remus sent the National Archives a letter telling the independent government agency to obey Biden, and not Trump, according to NBC.

“President Biden has determined that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents,” Remus wrote.

“These are unique and extraordinary circumstances. Congress is examining an assault on our Constitution and democratic institutions provoked and fanned by those sworn to protect them, and the conduct under investigation extends far beyond typical deliberations concerning the proper discharge of the President’s constitutional responsibilities.

“The constitutional protections of executive privilege should not be used to shield, from Congress or the public, information that reflects a clear and apparent effort to subvert the Constitution itself,” Remus wrote.

Trump fired back at the Biden White House.

“Biden has rejected our request to withhold White House information from the House Unselect Committee investigating the January 6th protest, but has not taken a stance on the insurrection that took place on November 3rd, often referred to as the Crime of the Century,” Trump said in a statement, referring to the 2020 presidential election, according to the New York Post.

“With our Country collapsing, with our Military disgraced, with our Borders nonexistent, when will the American people have had enough?”

Former Trump White House strategist Steve Bannon has said he will not respond to a subpoena from the House Select Committee investigating the incursion, prompting a hardball response from two members of the panel.

“Though the Select Committee welcomes good-faith engagement with witnesses seeking to cooperate with our investigation, we will not allow any witness to defy a lawful subpoena or attempt to run out the clock, and we will swiftly consider advancing a criminal contempt of Congress referral,” Chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson a Mississippi Democrat, and Vice-Chair Rep. Liz Cheney, a Wyoming Republican, said in a statement, according to the Post.

SETUP: Fake Whistleblower Frances Haugen Was Part of Anti-Trump Election Team

October 10, 2021 James G. Dalton Latest NewsPoliticsSocial 0 Comments

On Tuesday Facebook “whistleblower” and Democrat donor, Frances Haugen went before a Senate subcommittee this week two days after appearing on “60 Minutes” to push for more tech control of free speech as they see fit.

Facebook, Google-YouTube, and Twitter have been eliminating conservative voices on their platform for years. Even President Trump was banned from Facebook after their fake news reports that he organized an “insurrection” at the US Capitol on Jan. 6th.

According to FOX News, Haugen has donated 37 times and given nearly $2,000 to Democrats and related PACs since 2016 while being employed at Facebook, Pinterest, and Gigster, according to Federal Election Commission records.

And now this…Protect Yourself With This 10-Million Volt Stun Gun (Free!)

Frances Haugen was part of the anti-Trump Facebook team that banned Hunter Biden content from their platforms in the run-up to the 2020 election.

Frances Haugen is a fraud.

Breitbart.com reported:

Far-left Facebook “whistleblower” Frances Haugen, who has advised lawmakers to pass legislation that would empower the establishment media at the expense of independent creators, worked for a unit at Facebook tasked with preventing “misinformation” around the 2020 election — the same group that would have been involved in censoring the Hunter Biden laptop story.

It was called the “Civic Integrity Unit,” and as Haugen herself revealed, it was established just in time for the 2020 election, and wound down as soon as Biden won.

This unit, which was tasked with combating “disinformation” around the election, would almost certainly have been involved in the decision to suppress the New York Post’s story.

What’s more, Haugen told the Wall Street Journal that she only joined Facebook in the first place because she wanted to fight “misinformation.”

The Apprentice – Book 1 – The Calling Chapter 28

Early the next morning when Shane awoke the cloud cover was still overhead. At least the snow had stopped falling and the wind had blown itself out. It was still cold being so early, so he built his little fire back up from the smoldering cinders and fixed porridge. A nice bit of cured bacon that he wedged between two cold biscuits, and cup of hot tea made it a fine little breakfast to travel on. “The Moon will be full this evening” he said to the stallion.

Dark Star slowly nodded his head, and snorted loudly in agreement. Nobody had to explain to him what that portended. “We’ll be safe down there in the timber as long as we don’t show ourselves or make any light. Don’t you think so star?” Shane asked, the fear and hope in his voice made it rise an octave higher than normal. The brave stallion did not show the fear he held deep in his heart for the dragon could not agree more heartily. They would be safe indeed.

Dark Star had gone out during the night to determine the whereabouts of the outlaws, Brill, and Crandall. He followed their trail by the foot prints in the snow. To the mouth of Morloch’s cave and was immediately assaulted by the unmistakable stench of fire and brimstone.

Two of the primary ingredients necessary for making dragon fire. The key element was being a dragon. The stench of death that lay heavy within the cave told the horse the rest of the outlaw’s tale. They had unknowingly chosen to take shelter from the storm in the lair of the horse thieving man eater, Morlock the Terrible. They had met their fates in the form of the old dragon himself.

Without any further ado, Dark Star backed away from the cave entrance quickly, but quietly. Being careful lest he should arouse the evil old worm and share their fate on his plate. The old warhorse gave them no more thought save that it couldn’t have happened to two more deserving fellows than Brill and Crandall.

He couldn’t imagine how anyone would ever miss them, or that anybody would ever even think to come looking for them on the remote summit of Mount Thunder. Unless of course it was the local Sheriff, and a lynch mob or two.

Shane quickly finished his breakfast so he could brush Star, and the sisters down real good before he broke camp. He was eager to get an early start down the mountain. He was anxious to get down to the tree line where the horses could get grass and water. They’d had to go most of the previous day and night without either one. The rarefied mountain air was cold and brisk, but the wind was almost still as they picked their way slowly downhill.

The heavy white clouds over their heads soon gave way to blue skies and warm sunshine. By the time they reach the timberline again Shane had been forced to take off most of his heavy wool garments. Well before the noon hour arrived they came to a fertile glen that had an over abundance of grass growing there amidst the trees and shrubs. Shane stopped there for lunch to allow the horses to graze before they made their way down to the valley floor. They made excellent time due to the fact they were traveling down hill the whole way.

The valley between the mountains before them was many miles wide. That meant that they would have a nice gentle climb up into the foothills of the mountain ahead. Shane chose a campsite on the Northern side of a river that was shallow, but wide. he crossed first in case it rained during the night and kept them from crossing in the morning. That’s what he told Star anyway.

They were camped in a tiny clearing that had standing hay in it for the horses to feed on and they took right to it. Shane cooked his supper before the had sun fully set in the West. He then extinguished the little campfire and covered it completely with dirt. This in anticipation of the full moon when Morlock the Terrible would be on the prowl.

“He isn’t going to get us Star,” Shane said bravely. A lot more so than he actually felt just then. Even so, he believed they were safe enough hidden there in the darkness beneath the trees. To help ease Shane’s obvious anxiety, Dark Star agreed heartily with him. Secretly, he had his own doubts, but he would never allow any kind of fear to show in front of the boy. Night fell and they were lolling around doing nothing, when suddenly all three horses picked up their heads and perked up their ears. They were focused on a sound that was clearly well beyond the range of Shane’s hearing.

“What is it Star, what do you hear? Is it Morlock, is he coming?” He asked the stallion who shook his head, no, before he went back to listening to the keen wailing on the wind. “Whatever it is you hear, does it sound dangerous?” Sean scarcely more than whispered. But Star only snorted impatiently and returned to listening. He couldn’t tell what it was. Then with no more than a whinny, Star took off into the night at a dead run headed Southwest toward the river. All Shane could do was sit there in the dark and wait for the stallion to return. Hopefully he would find out what the big mystery was all about then. He didn’t have to wait more than an hour before Star returned and the big mystery was indeed finally cleared up.

When Dark Star finally did return, Shane was astonished to see three donkeys walking behind him, single-file. All three of the small, gray donkeys were trailing picket ropes from their halters, and they look like they had spent the night running blindly through dense underbrush with the devil hot on their heels. From what they told Dark Star when he found them hopelessly tangled up in thorn bushes where they’d been snared by their picket ropes that’s pretty much what happened.

After Star freed them by chewing through their ropes, the donkeys told Star how they’d come into the sad state of affairs he’d found them in from start to finish. They were able to fill the blanks in for him as to the fate of their last owners. Two brutish men whom they only described as ‘two smelly, nasty human beings.’ Star easily deduced that the two smelly, nasty humans could be none other than Brill and Crandall. They told Star about the white thunderstorm they’d been in on top of Mount Thunder. He was already familiar with that part, of course, and they told him how the smelly humans tried to drag them into Morloch’s cave where they could smell the overpowering stench of death emanating from somewhere deep inside the mountain, and how they’d refused to go in.

From their story, Dark Star was able to deduce they had been with Brill and Crandall atop Mount Thunder the night before. At times all three of the donkeys were trying to tell the story at once. They spoke animatedly of how they had been able to smell Morloch whose scent all horses learn to recognize very early on in their lives. They spoke in hushed tones about the terrible roar, and the wall of flames that had erupted from the mouth of the cave shortly after the two smelly humans had gone inside.

The remainder of their story was mainly about how they had run helter-skelter down the mountainside in the dark after they had broken their picket ropes. They’d gotten lost in the dense undergrowth on the valley floor and subsequently became hopelessly entangled in the thorn bush where they stayed until Star found. The rest of the story we all know as did the black stallion.

They said their names were Racer, Packer, and Bill but since all donkeys look nearly identical, Star had no idea which one was which so he decided to call all three of them Bill for the sake of convenience. The three were not closely related like Jenny and Vanna who were sisters. Donkeys have a peculiar way of tracing their family ties that defy human comprehension. Suffice it to say that Racer was Bill’s Uncle, Bill was Packers Niece (twice removed), and Packer was Racers grandfather on his mother’s side and leave it at that since it really makes no difference anyway. 

When Star return to camp leading the three donkeys, Shane was flabbergasted. “More animals!? He cried. “I swear, you must be a horse thief, Star.” Shane admonished the old warhorse, but Star denied all charges with a shake of his great head until Shane agreed to let the donkeys stay.

“But only until we can find their real owners.” Shane warned the stallion. Star tossed his head in vigorous agreement. “And don’t go ‘finding’ any more horses for the duration of this journey, okay?” He pleaded, but the stallion chose to pretend he hadn’t heard a word of it. He walked off to rejoin the donkeys and lead them to the meadow where they could feed. They hadn’t eaten during the long hours spent climbing Mount Thunder, nor at any time since they had escaped from Brill and Crandall. Shane set up late into the night keeping a wary eye on the full moon as it crossed the Heavens overhead. He was looking for any signs of the dragon, but since the Morlock family had already been well fed by the two plump turkeys that had conveniently perched themselves upon their very doorstep, there was no reason for the evil old worm to leave the snug confines of his lair. Morloch The Terrible was nowhere to be seen that night.

As soon as he awoke the next morning Shane had a light breakfast, and saddled the horses. Moving quickly because he wanted to make up some of the time they had lost due to him sleeping in that day. He’d stayed awake most of the night watching the sky for Morlock, and had overslept.

“Having a blanket pulled over my head so I couldn’t tell the sun was up didn’t help anything either, STAR!” Shane said, accusingly. Dark Star gave him an almost credible version of the classic who, me look. A look perfected by small children and other miscreants of that nature over many centuries.

“Yeah you,” Shane growled your guilty face doesn’t keep your secrets very well, Star. “With a long face like that I’d say your days as an actor and as a criminal are numbered at best. Shane thought the stallion was going to continue following the overland route through the mountains, but when he set his face to climb the next mountain, The stallion surprised him and took them Eastward along the riverbank.

“Sometimes I wish you could talk, Star so you could tell me what the devil you are thinking.” Shane told the horse. “At least then I would not feel like a will-of-the-wisp caught up in a whirlwind all the time.” Dark Star merely looked back at him with one coal black eye but said not a single word. A short knicker was all he got. The equestrian equivalent of a chuckle.

Shane discovered the reason for the change of direction just after taking a break for lunch. Shane had decided to unsaddle Star and the sisters and let them have a roll in the grass. He wanted to give them some time to splash around in the river and wash the accumulated sweat and dirt from their hides. Shane brushed them down and let them dry in the warm sunshine before re-saddling them and resuming the journey. Around 2:30 that afternoon they emerged from the thick forest and found themselves back on the road. The same one they had left ten days before on account of Brill and Crandall.

“Ah, now I see said the blind man as he picked up his hammer and saw.” Shane quipped as the light of comprehension dawned on his brain. Star snorted loudly, otherwise he said nothing more concerning his opinion on that subject. The little party traveled North on the highway for the remainder of the day, and by sunset they were high above the foothills of Mount Baldy. So named because it’s treeless domed peak resembled the rounded pate of a bald man. Normally, Shane would have stopped much sooner, but with six grazing animals to feed in his little troupe he was forced to find a spot with grass and water. He figured it would mean he’d have to spend another night without a fire, but the moon would still be full, and bright enough to see by. It wasn’t cold so Shane didn’t mind the thought of a cold camp. He was dog tired so he would just go to bed early.

And so on they went searching for a meadow close-by the roadside. It was just past sunset when Shane spied a light flickering through the trees just ahead of them. Hey, Star, he said to the horse, “it looks like we might have some company tonight. If that’s not those two clowns, Brill and Crandall that is. He added darkly. The stallion shook his black mane as if to say he rather doubted it.

“Oh.” Said Shane who kind of got the message. “I sure hope we don’t run into those two characters again don’t you?” He asked and the black stallion had to agree on principle if nothing else. When they got to the next turn in the road the thick forest opened out on both sides of the roadway where it ran through a large, grassy meadow. A burbling stream ran through it and cross the road on its way down the mountain.

In the valley it would eventually join the river they had camped beside that very morning. The campfire Shane had seen flickering through the trees was clearly visible now, being so close to the road. Shane saw that the fire was built on the closer bank of the stream itself. In the soft light of the setting sun, the boy could see that there were two men seated beside the fire. As he got closer he saw to his alarm that both of the men were wearing the long brown robes of Friars, and both of them had large wooden crosses hung around their necks. At first glance Shane thought they were Brill and Crandall and he pulled up sharply on Star’s reins. “Whoa, boy.” He whispered. “That is Brill and Crandall there! Look, Star!” He whispered softly in the stallions ear, but the war horse snickered and began walking towards the two men unbiddden. The northeasterly wind was blowing their scent directly into Dark Star’s keen nostrils. Given his first-hand knowledge of Brill, and Crandall’s final moments on Earth, and the fact he knew that they were currently touring the digestive system of one very nasty old dragon it meant that the two men before them were definitely not the same malodorous pair of miscreants as before. The men were complete strangers to his eyes. Shane tried to get the horse to stop but I’m sure you can imagine how that turned out. When the stallion got it into his mind to do something he did it regardless of what anyone thought about it. The two strangers had long-since heard them coming. As if they could help but hear 24 hooves striking the road at the same time even from a mile away. They’d both risen from the stones upon which they were seated o see who was coming up the road at such a late hour.

“Hello there strangers!” One of the men called out to Shane, who could tell by then that the men were definitely not Brill and Crandall.

“Hello yourselves strangers, but there is only one stranger here I’m afraid.” Shane replied.

“Well, stranger, you can’t ride all night long you know. Come down from there and share our fire with us friend.” The other man said, warmly.

“Thank you, sir, I believe I will,” Shane said, returning the smiles and warmth in equal measure. Just then, Bill, the real, Bill not Bill the second, or Bill the Third, began braying quite loudly at the rear of the little procession. He’d recognized the voice of his master, Brother Leo.

“I declare, that surely does sound like the voice of old Bill himself doesn’t it, Brother George?” Brother Leo asked his companion.

“Aye, and for certain it does at that, Brother Leo.” Brother George admitted with no little astonishment.

“I think I would know the sound of my own ass after all these years, wouldn’t you Brother George?” Brother Leo asked Brother George who confessed that, “one might certainly hope so,” as Shane and his long line of wayward livestock came to a halt right in front of them. Brother Leo rushed over to the little gray donkey named Bill and looked at him for a moment in the Silvery moonlight. His features were simultaneously hidden and highlighted by the golden glow of the light of the campfire. Suddenly he threw his arms around the little donkey’s neck and began shouting tearfully. “Bill! You’ve come back to us! It’s a miracle! The Lord be praised our Bill has come back to us! And look here, Brother George, there’s Racer and now here’s Packer too!” he exclaimed with great wonder resonating in his voice.

“I’m guessing those two know each other already, Star.” Sean whispered to the black stallion who tossed his head in agreement. Then is when it all began coming back to Shane, and he recalled the story Brill had related to him the night before just before Shane put the monkey spell on him and let him go. He hadn’t believed even half of what the thief had told him, but now here was living proof that at least some of the story had been truthful.

Before Shane could dismount, Brother Leo walked up to him leading Bill the Donkey. Pray thee tell us lad” he asked, looking up into , Shane’s eyes with unhidden suspicion. “How, and where did you come into the position of these three donkeys?”

“To tell you the truth I didn’t really.” Shane replied. “It was Star here who found them somewhere down in the valley below. He found them somewhere last night but under what circumstances I could not imagine, for I honestly don’t know. All I really do know about them is what the man who tried to rob and murder me on top of Mount Thunder told me about inheriting three donkeys from two Friars in Gallows Gap. Wherever that is,” Shane explained.

“The two men said they inherited them did they? Brother Leo snorted derisively. Aye, and sure enough they stole them from us is the truth of that matter, lad.” Brother George told Shane.

“Yes, well that’s about what I figured the truth of it was where those two men were concerned. Shane assured the monks.

“Aye, tis sooth,” Brother George stated firmly. “Well then lad, light down from your saddle and we’ll help you get the livestock settled in for the night. Then you can join us by the fire for some freshly-caught and roasted Speckled Trout on a stick.” Brother Leo told Shane with a lopsided grin.

“Speckled trout on a stick?” Shane wondered aloud.

“Yes, it’s all we have to cook with since those men stole everything we had.” Brother Leo explained.

“I see,” said Shane as he dismounted and begin removing Star’s saddle. Brothers Leo and George helped by unburdening Vanna and Jenny of their pack saddles. In short order, Star lead his loyal following out into the meadow for some long overdue grazing In the standing hay there. Meanwhile the humans sat down at the campfire to graze on some piping hot Speckled Trout-on-a-stick.

“My this is pretty tasty,” Shane said after testing his portion. “I’ve eaten nothing but trail rations ever since I left the Pig and Whistle Inn back in Northam.”

“Aye, did you hear that then, brother Leo? It seems that your opinion of my culinary skills are not shared by our young benefactor here,” brother George stated with a hearty chuckle.

“Sure, and that can only be because he has yet to taste your beastly rutabaga stew yet, brother George,” Brother Leo assured him before they all shared a rollicking laugh at the cook’s expense.

Eventually the conversation turned, as it was bound to sooner or later, to Brill, and Crandall, and how they had each come upon the grave misfortune of having met them. First the brothers listened in rapt attention, as only a monk can, while Shane told them about his journey. Beginning with his trip to the Mayre Woods and his meeting with the wizard, Choralys the White. He wrapped up his long tale with an account of the eleven days he’d just spent in the backcountry. A tale that began with the harrowing climb out of Spirit Horse canyon. He concluded with the telling of the violent white thunderstorm and his close encounter with Brill, and Crandall on the summit of Mount Thunder.

Shane even pulled out the broadsword Crandall had left behind after Dark Star had knocked backward him into the fire. He showed them the shattered remains of Brill’s sword as well. The two Friars wanted to know what had destroyed the sword so devastatingly, but since Shane had not seen the bolt of lightning that struck the Wizards old staff,, the best he could do was guess.

“Maybe it was forged from cheap steel or something. I really don’t have any idea what happened to it,” he confessed.

Next, it was brother George and Leo’s turn to relate how they had encountered the two Highwaymen. Starting from where they had been riding South through the narrow confines of Gallows Gap when the two men had literally fallen out of the sky and landed in the mud at their feet. From that point on the telling got a bit whimsical. The three travel-weary sojourners collapsed on the ground shaking all over from unstoppable fits of laughter when Brother Leo told Shane how they had thought the robbers were possessed by evil spirits and how they had made Holy mud with which to dispossess them.

By the time Brother George got to the part where Brill had tripped over his own buckler and fell face-down in the mud, the three of them were laughing so hard that the horses stopped grazing and stared at them like they had lost their minds. The only one of the animals that understood the humans was of course Dark Star, and he translated their stories into Equestrus. As the stallion related the human’s stories they listened with ears perked up in rapt attention.

“When you found our asses you didn’t also find any of the packs that were with them did you, my son?” Brother Leo asked when all tales of the now deceased highwaymen they’d all had the great misfortune to encounter were exhausted.

“No I wasn’t there when Star found them so I couldn’t tell you where he found them or if they had pack saddles when he did.” Shane said. “I don’t know if they escaped from Brill and Crandall on top of Mount Thunder, or if they escaped down in the valley. But, I do know that Star stole your donkeys away from them. We were on our way to a monastery in Branstead which is south of Shropshire, but we took a notion in our heads to come back this way looking for our asses and our belongings.” Brother Leo explained. Well at least we got our asses back anyway. Brother George sighed. “Aye, Brother George,” Brother Leo agreed. “We shall just have to trust in the good Lord to provide us with our sustenance and shelter until we get to the monastery then won’t we? He added.

“Aye,” Brother George agreed.

“No, I think not.” Shane chimed in suddenly as an idea occurred to him. What do you mean my son? Brother Leo and George asked, puzzled by Shane’s unclear meaning.

“Do you mean that the Lord will not provide for us?”

No, it’s not that at all, brother George.” Shane replied. “In fact, I believe that the Lord has already provided for you. You see, when Brill and Crandall left Northam they packed enough food to hold them over for a month or more.”

“Is that right?” Brother Leo asked thoughtfully.

“Yes,” Shane assured him. “I figure since they took all of your things and since I don’t need them I think you should take the mules and their packs and do with them as you will.”

” Are you serious, my son?”

“Very much so,” Shane assured him.

” Why God bless you my son, you are a true Saint!” Brother George exclaimed.

Aye, verily so! Brother Leo agreed. Verily so.

That being decided, Shane broke into the stores of the pack saddles and made tea for all of them in his tiny copper kettle. They sat up all night talking and laughing as the full moon sailed across the sky above.

Shane was dog tired and barely conscious near the end, but it had been two and a half weeks since he had spoken to another human being. He forced his eyelids to stay open well into the wee hours of the morning before they finally collapsed under their own weight. He nearly fell backward off of his rock from having fallen sound asleep so many times. All three men slept very late the next morning so it was closer to noon when Shane opened his eyes and found himself staring up at the underside of his own blanket.

“One of these days horse! One of these days,” He said to no one at all. But of course, he of the long black ears oh-so-keen was well within ear radar distance, and he gave Shane a short horsey laugh to let the boy know he’d heard him.

“It’s a good thing I didn’t call him a stupid horse this time,” Shane thought to himself. He’d already had more than his fill of being tossed into ice-cold creeks while he was sleeping. He was much too sound of a sleeper to have any chance of escaping the stallions wrath. He knew he would have to be careful of what he said, and how he said it in the future. Shane decided to lay there a while longer underneath the blanket with his eyes closed. That is, until he heard the heavy hoof falls of a big horse coming directly toward him. They stopped next to the palette where Shane lay.

“Go away star,” Shane muttered sleepily. He was beginning to contemplate going back to sleep, and perhaps even spending the whole day there fishing for speckled trout in the stream.

“Sorry, but, Shane doesn’t live here anymore, go away and try again tomorrow please. Thank you,” He said to the stallion he knew was standing directly over him. Of course Star had no intentions of going away, and trying again tomorrow.

Shane felt something nuzzling at his stomach and laughed out loud as he touched upon a ticklish spot. Stop it, you crazy horse!” He laughed. Then star took Shane’s his blanket between his teeth and yanked it off of him. Shane tried to hold onto the blanket but the thick ropy muscles of the big warhorses neck were nearly equal to the strength of Shane’s entire body combined.

“Ha ha!” Shane could hear, Brother George laughing at him. “Verily, your trusty steed thinks thee a slugabed, my son.” he observed as Dark star easily won the lopsided tug-of-war match and stripped Shane of his blanket.

“Aye, Brother George!” Shane laughed. If I want to rise early, he covers up my head with the blanket so I cannot see the sun come up. But if I wish to sleep in, he comes along and takes it from me.”

“Tis but as well that we should arise now, lad, for I see Brother Leo returning from his foraging expedition and it appears to mine eyes as though he had success finding our breakfast.” Shane set up in his palette lazily rubbing the sluggishness from his brain, and the lingering remnants of sleep from his eyes. 

“I see him brother George,” Shane said, “it looks like he found a lot of food too, whatever it might be.”

Meanwhile, Brother George had set to coaxing the fire back to life. To the sassy black stallion standing beside him with his blanket still in his teeth Shane said, menacingly, “I just hope you’re aware that this my friend means war?”

To which the war horse tossed his great head up and down vigorously causing his coal black mane to fly around along with Shane’s flailing blanket.

“Hey! You give me back my blanket!” Shane cried as he watched his blanket getting horse slobber all over it.

Dark Star whinnied, and tossed his head one last time before he let go of the blanket. It flew up like a magic carpet and then down it came settling over Shane’s head. It made him look like a ghost that had lost its sheet and been forced to haunt the meadow under an old saddle blanket.

“Oh yeah,” Shane said from beneath the blanket. “You had better believe that this means war indeed, Mister Dark Star.

The sound of the stallion prancing away and whinnying that all-too-familiar horse laugh rang defiantly in his ears as the stallion tried it away to rejoin the rest of the herd animals.

When Brother Leo returned to camp, Shane, and Brother George discovered he was carrying a big bunch of juicy ripe blueberries basketed in the folds of his robe. They were ripe and bursting with flavor.

“By the Lord, Brother Leo!” Brother George exclaimed. “Pray tell, where did you find these wonderful blueberries?”

“Seek and ye shall find, Brother George,” Brother Leo said cryptically, “seek and ye shall find.”

“Verily so Brother,” Shane agreed while brother George made it unanimous. The three men feasted on biscuits with honey butter and fresh blueberries, and Shane added some smoked bacon from his own meager food stores.

When they had eaten their fill, Brother Leo recited passages from the Bible that he had memorized. By the time Shane got back on his feet and took a bath in the cold mountain stream it was 2:30 in the afternoon. He decided along with, Brothers George, and Leo to stay there in the roadside meadow and rest for the remainder of the day.

That night was spent quite pleasantly in good company, and the following sunrise saw Shane and the Friars parting company to go their separate ways. They parted quickly with many prayers, and fond fare thee well wishes.

“It looks like it’s just you and me again now Star,” Shane told the warhorse.

Going the opposite direction, Brother George suddenly turned to his companion and said, “I could be wrong, Brother Leo, but methinks both of these mules are in a family way.”

“Aye,” Brother George said as they rode South. “I believe thou art rightly spoken, Brother Leo.”

Vanna and Jenny already knew it, of course. Both mules threw occasional glasses back along their trail at the now receding figure of the handsome black stallion. They watched him as best they could until the horse and rider were finally lost from their sight.

It took five more days of steady traveling before Shane and Dark Star finally descended the northern slope of the Thieron mountains on the 21st day of August. After two and a half weeks of climbing up and over the high reaches of that great mountain range.

That evening Shane rode into a tiny Hamlet called Vinton where he discovered that they had a very fine inn that featured hot baths in each room, and the stables were almost comfortable enough for the riders to lodge in. The place was called the Dewcome Inn, and they made such a complete fuss over Shane and Dark Star that, Shane told the Innkeeper, a short round jolly old soul named, Cerrol, that he’d decided to stay an extra day to rest up himself and his horse. Star had done all of the hard work carrying him safely over the treacherous mountain passes.

Two days later, on the morning of the 23rd, Shane ate a hearty breakfast in the cozy dining room, and after purchasing supplies he settled his bill, saddled Dark Star and they continued north toward Darvonshire. That night they made camp in a wooded spot near the roadway. Shane set up camp and fixed himself a hot meal complete with tea for dinner, then he took out his copy of The Apprentices Handbook Volume 1 and read some of it by firelight before he went to bed.

Shane was just putting the book back into his saddlebags when Dark Star’s head rose from the clover he was grazing on and he snorted loudly in alarm.

“What is it, Star?” Shane asked so quietly that only the horse could hear him. “What do you hear? Is there someone coming?” To the last question the warhorse nodded his head.

No sooner had he confirmed it than Shane heard the tramping of heavy booted feet approaching him. Suddenly a deep bass voice called out from the darkness,

“Hello there at the fire!” Before he could reply a literal giant of a man stepped into the light of the tiny campfire with the biggest hat held in the biggest hands, and he wore the biggest smile on the biggest face Shane had ever seen in his entire 13 years on the planet Earth.

The giant had a great unruly shock of red hair growing wild atop his massive head, and matching red beetle eyebrows. A massive red mustache covered his upper lip all the way down to his chin where he was successfully growing a very long, shaggy red beard. He was dressed quite curiously in an outfit comprised entirely of animal furs that were mainly wolf hides by the looks of them. On the Giants back there was slung a great crossbow that looked to be exceptionally lethal by dint of its size alone. The bolt was the size of a Roman spear, and it could easily take down even the largest grizzly bear. 

“Hello there, lad!” The red bearded giant hailed from the edge of the firelight where he stood. “Have ye got room for one more travel weary soul at your fire there my friend?” Shane was too stunned by the sudden appearance of the giant to properly process the information in his brain at first but then instincts took over. When a giant approaches you with a smile on his face do as the Romans do. Smile back at him and make him feel at home. The man’s voice, although it was deep and rough, sounded so good-natured that in spite of his initial weariness Shane heard himself saying to the big man, “Sure we do. Come on over and pull up a rock.” He said, idicating a small stone beside the fire.

“Ho ho ho!” The giant laughed, “I’m afraid my tender backside prefers the softer cushion of good old Mother Earth to a hard stone seat my young friend but thank you just the same. He added as he sat down upon the grass on the other side of the fire. He took off the heavy pack that he was carrying and laid it on the ground beside himself. “Ah! He sighed long, and loud as his big feet were relieved of their enormous burden. “My poor dogs have really taken a beating today I can tell you lad.” The giant laughed as he massaged his feet through the leather of his heavy boots.

“Why don’t you take your boots off then?” Shane wondered aloud.

“If I did that then my poor feet would swell up so big that I not be able to get my boots back on again,” the red giant explained.

“Oh, I see,” Shane said not at all sure that he did. He’d long since grown accustomed to riding the horse and so did not have such problems as sore feet at the end of the day. He only had a sore backside from the long hours that he spent in Dark Star’s saddle.

“Can I offer you something to eat mister, uh, what do I call you?”

” My friends call me Tim,” the giant said, “And no, thank you, lad I have my own supply of grub with me.” As though to prove it, the giant pulled a full leg of lamb from the pack and held it over the campfire for several minutes to warm it up before he attacked it like a starving bear. Which, Shane noted with no small amusement, he resembled very closely. Shane said very little, but he watched in fascination while the big man devoured the entire leg of mutton clean down to the bone. Then he sucked the marrow from it for good measure. Then he tossed the clean white bone over his shoulder where it landed far back in the woods behind him. “That’s for the Wolves to gnaw on lad,” he said with a laugh. “So lad,” he asked Sane next, “what brings you to such a lonely, far away spot as this?”

“I’m traveling to the home of my new master in Darvonshire where I will serve him as his Apprentice for a term of four years.” Shane replied.

“As his Apprentice, doing what, lad? As a knight’s Squire, a blacksmith, a farrier? The giant asked. No sir as a wizard. Shane replied. Tim’s bushy red eyebrows raised to their full height in wide-eyed wonder at the boys statement.

“Is that a fact, lad?” He asked quietly. “Is that the reason you’re carrying that staff there? He said indicating the staff lying beside Dark Star’s saddle.

“Sort of,” Shane replied. It once belonged to a wizard I once knew briefly named, Choralys The White.”

“You say you got it from the wizard Choralys, lad?”

“Yes, sir, that’s the one.”

“I knew Choralys from a time that was long ago and far, far away. How is it that you are carrying his staff now?” The red giant asked, leaning forward to hear the answer better.

“I found it near the site of his tomb, sir.” Shane replied gravely.

“His tomb you say?

“Yes, sir. He’s somehow caused a great and terrible blast that destroyed his home and his lab. The blast sealed it up forever inside the cave.”

“I see,” the Giant said, forlornly. “Indeed that is a shame, indeed it is, lad.” the Giant whispered softly as he bowed his head for a moment. With a great sigh he straightened up and pulled a great leather wine flask from his backpack. “He was a wise man and a great warrior, lad,” he said as he uncorked the wine skin. “Come now,” the big man said, “let us share a toast to the memory of that great wizard, Choralys the White.” That said the Giant took the wineskin in both hands and put it to his lips. He took a long great draft from its contents before he lowered it again. A satisfied sigh whistled gently through his lips. “Here you are then lad,” big Tim said recapping the wineskin and tossing it across the fire to Shane.

 Sean put up his hands to catch the wineskin flying at his face, and he caught it. But the prodigious weight of the giant wineskin hit him in the chest like a ton of bricks and sent him flying head over heels. He flew off of his rock seat and landed in the tall grass behind it. This, very much to the amusement of both the giant and the black stallion who had joined him in fits of raucous laughter. Shane’s somewhat strained voice came weekly back from somewhere in the tall weeds a moment later saying, “Got it!”

“Aye, and I’d say it got you too lad!” The giant laughed so hard he shook the trees around them to their roots.

“Yes, well, you forgot to mention that you keep 40 gallons of wine in here, Tim.” Shane pointed out as he picked himself up out of the grass and made his way back to the stone upon which he had been sitting.

“Do you need some help with that, lad?” Tim offered, seeing that Shane was struggling with it.

“No no. I think I can handle it okay,” Shane assured the giant as he uncorked the wine skin, and attempted to hoist it to his lips as the giant had done. The weight of the wine proved to be a bit too much for him to handle, However, and to Shane’s dismay he ended up wearing more wine than he drank.

“That there is what we call alcohol abuse laddie,” big Tim said, rising to give the boy a hand. “Here then, allow me to assist you before you drown yourself in my good wine.” The giant then held the wineskin aloft for Shane while he guided it to his lips himself. He drank a mighty draught that nearly matched that of the red giant.

By the time he pushed the wineskin away he could already feel the warm soft glow of the strong wine beginning to spread down into his belly like a slowly smoldering fire. “That’s wine?” He asked, with no small doubts.

“Well, yeah, for the most part it is, lad. It’s my own concoction of French wine and a well-aged Welsh Brandy thrown in to give it a little extra kick. Do you not like it, lad?” He asked, placing the spout to his own lips once more.

He took a second huge draught that Shane was sure would have been more than enough to put him out of commission for the evening. As unaccustomed as he was to drinking any sort of alcohol even at the ripe old age of 16. An age when most young men were already drinking.

“Ahhhh!” Big Tim sighed, happily smacking his lips as he lowered the now much lighter wineskin. “Now that is some good stuff there lad!” He boomed as he replaced the cork and returned the wineskin to his backpack.

From a side pouch the giant pulled out a much smaller bag that appeared to be made from a silver wolf’s hide. Had an intricately carved ivory pipe of giantish proportions inside of it, and he filled it with tobacco from the pouch. Taking a burning stick out of the fire, Tim placed it over the bowl and began puffing away at it with gusto.

“Now then,” he said settling down on the grass again. “What could be better for the soul than a good fire, good company, good wine, and a pipe in the cool of the evening?” He wondered aloud as he blew several large bluish gray smoke rings that flew out and over the campfire where they vanished in the smoke.

Shane was half in the bag by then from all of the fortified wine he had drank, and he allowed that he could not imagine anything better. Even though he did not smoke tobacco. Not since that one disastrous experiment that he and Tavian had made with a little bit of tobacco and a borrowed pipe out behind his father’s barn one fine day.

Shane had taken one big long drag from the pipe and inhaled it as Tavian had instructed him. He’d nearly choked to death while simultaneously attempting to vomit up his socks. He had turned eighteen colorful shades of green according to Tayvian. To make a bad situation far worse, his father had caught them when he heard Shane coughing and gagging out behind his barn and went to investigate. Tavian had gotten off easily with nothing but a stern reprimand. Shane was not quite so lucky.

Not only had his father not whipped him like he had expected, he had not even yelled at him. Instead he gave Shane his own pipe, and his tobacco pouch and he told him to smoke it. Shane made a feeble attempt to decline the offer but, Rande insisted. He filled the bowl for him and Shane knew he had no choice but to do as he was told so he lit it up and began puffing on it.

“No no, lad. You have to inhale the smoke like a man if you want to smoke like a man.” Rande had scolded him, so Shane inhaled it again. At first he was coughing and gagging, but, he soon got used to it, and found it to be somewhat agreeable. He even made a comment or two about the quality of the tobacco and how well the pipe smoked. When he had finished smoking that bowl his father filled the pipe up again and told him to smoke that too. His tone made it very clear that this was also an order, not a request.

Shane smoked that pipe load of tobacco, and by the time he was finished he was beginning to feel a little woozy. Rande, however, was not through teaching the boy his lesson yet. He filled up a third bowl and handed it to Shane to smoke. By the time he got to the fifth pipe load, poor young Shane was beginning to turn a ghastly shade of green around the gills. His father could see that he’d learned his lesson, and he was getting through to the boy.

“Have you had your fill of smoking yet son?” His father asked, but Shane’s only answer was the sudden need to run and find a nice private spot to throw up for the next hour or two.

When big Tim offered Shane his wolf skin tobacco pouch he politely declined, saying, “No thank you, I don’t smoke anymore. I had to quit.”

They sat across the fire from one another talking about where they were from, and what they had seen , and done with their lives so far. Tim told Shane that he was on his way to Lorraine which was far to the east of Shane’s village back home. He was going there to attend a family reunion he said.

“Are all of the people in your family as big as you are?” Shane asked the giant who laughed and said, No, lad, certainly not. I’m the youngest one of the litter and the smallest one of them all.”

” But, but you’re a giant!” Shane cried. He was astonished that anybody could call the Giant in front of him a runt. Sure, lad, that I am. But my older brother’s, of which there are six, are even bigger than I am. Though not by a great deal.” he added with emphasis.

“Shoot!” Shane gasped. Trying to wrap his brain around the idea of a man that was even bigger than the giant sitting across the fire from him.

The giant was happily blowing huge smoke rings into the night air.

“You’re almost as big as my horse!” He exclaimed.

“That I am,” replied big Tim. He laughed at the boy’s reaction to his size but that was something the giant was quite used to as one might imagine.

“By the way, speaking of your magnificent stallion I meant to ask you. Where in the world did a poor shepherd boy ever come by an animal such as this? You didn’t go and steal him now did you lad?”

” Steal him? Oh, no sir, I can assure you I am no horse thief!” Shane assured the red giant that was eyeing him rather suspiciously. “I got him on my 16th birthday which was only last month.”

“Your father gave him to you then did he?”

“No sir, he was a gift from my new master Sheldrake the Elder, along with the saddle and the tack that you see here.” Shane said pointing to the tack.

“Aye, I see them lad, and fine they are for sure, but I am almost positive that I’ve seen this same animal somewhere before in the past. What is he called?” The giant asked.

“His name is Dark Star, but I call him Star for short.” Shane replied.

“Oh yes I do know this brave, and noble steed. He’s a war horse.” The giant said, eyeing the stallion who was grazing nearby like he could not hear their conversation a stone’s throw away.

“You do? From where?”

“From the time he carried the valiant Prince Ragnar into battle against the Savage forces of King Rohond when their armies fought on the bloody planes of Morin. Before that I saw him when he carried the brave, Sir Gilland, also known as the White Knight, into battle twice against the Huns in the battle of the freemen of 37 and 39.”

” Wow! Really?!” Shane whistled appreciatively. He had heard a great many stories about those now famous battles fought against his country’s most fearsome enemies, and won by its most legendary heroes.

“Certainly. It is the very same stallion or I’ll pluck my beard out one whisker at a time.” The giant assured Shane who was looking at the horse with new found respect.

“He must be a lot older than he looks,” Shane ventured.

“Aye, that he is, lad. That he is. This one is a very old veteran war horse indeed. It’s said that he was enchanted by a wizard that used to own him a long time ago. The wizard only rode him into battle once. That was against the Troll Army back in 66 when he was killed in action. Just then Dark Star wandered over to the fire and laid his big black muzzle on the red giants shoulder, and allowed the big man to scratch him between the ears. A definite sign of respect for that particular horse. “You see, lad? Tim said, “He remembers me sure enough.” the giant laughed as Dark Star stuck his cool wet nose in the big warrior’s ear giving him an equine wet willy.

“Sure and he hasn’t changed one bit either have you you old plow horse you?” The black stallion enjoyed the attention and tossed his great black mane by shaking his head. Causing Shane and the giant to burst into laughter. Shane was about to say something funny when the spell was broken suddenly by the sharp crack of a twig broken underfoot. It had come from the woods directly behind them.

Dark Star’s head snapped up at the sound, and both men started, looking in the direction the noise had come from. The direction in which the stallion was staring, but the dark night beyond the little circle of light from the campfire meant the two of them couldn’t see a thing. Especially since their eyes had become fully accustomed to the light from the fire.

Big Tim reached behind his back and unslung his massive crossbow faster than Shane would have believed possible. Then a sinister voice from out of the darkness warned, “No no no! I wouldn’t do that if I were you giant, for my own crossbow is already trained upon you. And since I can see you and you cannot see me, I think it would be quite unwise to challenge me.”

Big Tim paused as though he were debating both sides of the argument against the possibility of getting off a lucky shot before he was shot himself. In the end he decided that the intruder was right. To resist would be foolish indeed. “What do you want from us you bloody scoundrel?” Big Tim growled any voice that would have scared a hungry polar bear away from a freshly killed seal. It didn’t seem to faze the intruder the least bit, however.

“I only want whatever you choose to give me giant,” the sinister voice sneered from the darkness.

“We don’t want to give you anything you stinking sneak-thief!” Big Tim snapped back.

“Yeah! You heard what the man said. Be gone, thief!” A half drunk, Shane interjected as he reached to get a chunk of firewood to toss on the campfire. A low twhip sounded from the darkness followed by a dull thud as a fletched black bolt fired from a crossbow buried itself in the firewood a few inches from Shane’s outstretched hand. Shane held it up for Big Tim to see while he himself stared at it like it had appeared there by magic.

“There are plenty more where that one came from, lad.” The sinister voice warned them with yet another audible sneer. “And there’s already another one aimed at your heart. So unless you want to feel its sting, I would suggest that you give me everything of value you have. Starting with that horse and saddle. You can add to that whatever gold or silver you might have on you as well.”

” I have no gold or silver, sir. I am but a poor Shepherd boy,” Shane lied, hoping he would not be searched.

“Nor do I you filthy scoundrel!” The giant growled menacingly.

“Fine I’ll just take the horse and tack and I’ll be on my way.” the thief said merrily.

“You can’t take my horse! Please sir I beg of you!” Shane pleaded, “he’s all I have in this world.”

But the evil Intruder was unmoved.

“You mean he is all that you used to have in this world, lad. Now saddle him up quickly and don’t try any funny business or I’ll put a bolt through your hide for sure if you do.”

“Yes sir, Shane said as he rose up on unsteady legs to wobble over and begin saddling the black stallion.

The horse was quivering with rage, as was the Giant warrior from being helpless to thwart their unseen enemy. Shane attempted to stall for time, but the thief warned him to, “hurry it up or else!”

He hardly needed to explain to Shane what ‘or else’ entailed. When Dark Star was saddled the still unseen thief ordered Shane to place his gilded saddlebags along with both of their packs on the stallion’s back. This he did, but with great reluctance.

The thief then ordered both of them to empty out their pockets but that search turned up nothing of any real value. Both Shane and the giant kept their money hidden away, and not in their pockets either.

At long last the sinister voice commanded Shane to take Dark Star and lead him over to the trees where he was waiting. “Do it nice and slow and don’t you even think about trying anything funny, boy or I’ll drop you in your tracks.” The voice warned.

“Yes sir. I, I mean, no sir.” Shane said, as he took the stallion’s reins and told him, “come on, Star.” He led the old war horse over to the trees to hand him over to a sneak thief.

“Stop right there lad,” The voice ordered when they reached the edge of the trees. Shane stopped where he was, and awaited further instructions. He could tell the thief was very close from the sound of his voice when he again ordered Shane to stop. When the man moved out of the shelter of the trees he was almost directly in front of them. In the pitch darkness with his eyes still not fully adjusted to the dark due to the firelight that had dilated them, so Shane could not make out any of the man’s features. All he could see was a pasty white weasel-like face, and the loaded crossbow in his right hand that was pointed directly at Shane’s chest.

“Hold his reins for me while I mount up boy, and don’t you even twitch.”

“No sir, Shane assured him as the thief mounted his horse and sat down in his saddle.

“Here now boy. Give me his reins and step away from my beautiful new horse. He and I are going for a late night ride in the Moonlight.” the thief stated with a cruel laugh.

“Please sir, I beg of you. Please don’t take him away from me, please! Shane pleaded one last time but the black heart of the thief held no pity for any of his victims. “Sorry, lad, but in this world it’s only the strong that survive. Someday you will understand that,” the thief said with an evil laugh.

“Yes sir, Shane said as he lowered his head and said goodbye to his horse. Goodbye, old friend, I sure am going to miss you,” he said.

Dark Star knickered softly in reply and nuzzled Shane with his great black muzzle.

Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America

A guy named Miles Taylor, who I have no idea who he is, don’t remember ever meeting him or having a conversation with, gets more publicity pretending he was in the inner circle of our Administration when he was definitely not. Some people refer to him as “absolutely nothing.” I hear he is on CNN and MSDNC all the time, but he had nothing to do with any of my decisions, and I wouldn’t even know what he looks like. He is the guy who fraudulently wrote a make-believe book and statement to the failing New York Times calling himself “Anonymous.” That’s right, he, a lowlife that I didn’t know, was Anonymous. Now he’s putting together a group of RINOs and Losers who are coming out to protest President Trump despite our creating the greatest economy ever, getting us out of endless wars, rebuilding our Great Military, reducing taxes and regulations by historic levels, creating Space Force, appointing almost 300 Judges, and much, much more! He is a phony who will probably be sued over his fake book and fake “Anonymous” editorial, which caused so much treasonous stir. Miles Taylor and his fellow RINO losers like Tom Ridge, Christine Todd Whitman, and Crazy Barbara Comstock voted for Biden, and now look what they have—a socialist regime with collapsing borders, massive tax and regulation hikes, unrest in the Middle East, and long gas lines. He is even giving us men setting new records playing women’s sports. What a disaster for our Country it has been!

I see that everybody is comparing Joe Biden to Jimmy Carter. It would seem to me that is very unfair to Jimmy Carter. Jimmy mishandled crisis after crisis, but Biden has CREATED crisis after crisis. First there was the Biden Border Crisis (that he refuses to call a Crisis), then the Biden Economic Crisis, then the Biden Israel Crisis, and now the Biden Gas Crisis. Joe Biden has had the worst start of any president in United States history, and someday, they will compare future disasters to the Biden Administration—but no, Jimmy was better!

Update: Maricopa audit

From Wendy Rogers on May 05, 2021

Dear Friends —

You wanted to get the truth behind the 2020 vote in Maricopa County. I did too. 

Today, we are one step closer. 

I am Senator Wendy Rogers, the pro-Trump firebrand Arizona State Senator who is putting America First in Arizona! Can you help me stand strong for election integrity?

This is no vapid partisan exercise. Facebook paid millions to the Maricopa Board of Supervisors to ensure the vote would go the way Big Tech wanted. We need to know the truth.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Arizona’s state Senate is set to begin a major audit of ballots from the state’s largest county after months of being reportedly blocked by county officials.

“It’s taken the Senate 2 1/2 months to win in court to uphold our right to issue subpoenas for election materials,” said state Senate President Karen Fann, “and another six weeks of researching to select the audit team to perform the full forensic audit.”

Arizona’s Republican-controlled Senate has had subpoenas to the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors pending since Dec. 15 and has battled in court for the right to access to information and equipment needed to perform the audit.

A judge upheld the chamber’s right to issue the subpoenas, paving the way for a “detailed” review of the county’s ballots to include “testing the machines, scanning the ballots, performing a full hand count, and checking for any IT breaches.”

Now, Republicans in the state are ironing out the final details on how to conduct the audit, with lawmakers accusing county officials of attempting to “sabotage” the effort.

But the lawmakers were able to secure a “20,000-plus square foot facility known as the Coliseum at our state fairgrounds to perform the audit” and will have 24-hour physical and livestream security at the site.

“The Arizona Senate and the auditors have no ‘expectations’ of findings,” Fann said. “We are performing the full forensic audit to either dispel our voters’ concerns or, if a problem is uncovered, we must fix the problems before the next election.”

So here we see… we had to subpoena the ballots, sue the Maricopa Board of Supervisors, secure a separate facility, and hire an auditor ourselves. But we got it done and now we will FINALLY get to the bottom of what happened in Maricopa.

I am helping Arizona take action! I am the deciding vote on the action taken by the Arizona Senate to find the truth of the 2020 Election and ensure our elections are more secure going forward. 

The left-wing press is attacking me constantly. If I don’t buy ads, the truth never gets out. It’s expensive, but worth it. 

Will you stand with me for election integrity? What we are doing can be done in other places.

Can you stand with us today?

I am keeping my promises to fight for you!

Help me send a message – America is in chaos due to Biden, but Arizona can choose differently!

Thank you and God bless you.

Wendy Rogers, Lt Col USAF (ret)

Arizona State Senator

Arizona’s 6th Legislative District

P.S. I am fighting hard to fulfill my campaign promises. I am taking a lot of heat but I don’t care. Please support me by helping me reach fundraising my goal by April 30th. Thank you.

“Now Even Medina Spirit Is A Junkie.” – President Donald J. Trump.

From the Desk of President Trump:

Image

“So now even our Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, is a junky. This is emblematic of what is happening to our Country. The whole world is laughing at us as we go to hell on our Borders, our fake Presidential Election, and everywhere else!” UnQuote.

The article below is the one I published shortly after Medina Spirit won the Kentucky Derby. And then I hear through the news that Bob Baffert had been suspended by Churchill Downs, and on Sunday On Sunday, Baffert says that Medina Spirit had tested positive for 21 picograms of betamethasone. For clarification that’s an anti-inflammatory drug that “otherwise is legal but results in a positive when found in the blood on race day.” He said.

He also says he thinks that’s harsh punishment without a split result. “We live in a different world now,” Baffert said while appearing on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom With Bell Hemmer & Dana Perino.” “This America is different. It was like a cancel culture kind of a thing.”

Uh huh, sure, Bob. Let’s forget about all that for a minute, Bob, and let’s back the truck up to the part where you said it was in the horses blood when it should not have been in the horses blood on race day because that would tend to make a horse that you claimed couldn’t run with that field run away from them from post to post. Would it not? Yep. Isn’t that the same thing as what got Lance Armstrong in so much trouble? Yep. That was it.

A Pharmacist told me this before I knew it was an anti-inflammatory Medina Spirit had tested positive for. Not a Veterinarian, a Pharmacologist who owns horses, and has for a very long time. I’m going to have to lean toward strong disbelief on this one, Bob.

The fact that the drug was in his blood is the entire issue. What effect that level of it would have is a matter for the Veterinary Board to assess and as a livestock Judge of many years I feel they should do just that and make it public. There’s no cancel culture here. I bet on Medina Spirit and I love the Derby and the horses, I love horse racing, and I love everything about Churchill Downs more than eating. I love the thrill of hoping for a Triple Crown winner every year when they run for the roses. More than anything else I believed in you as a trainer. To me it’s a dishonor to oneself to cheat at anything but to dope a horse is really low.

How do you explain this, Bob? https://www.espn.com/horse-racing/story/_/id/29468696/trainer-bob-baffert-suspended-15-days-horses-test-positive

Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Two-time Triple Crown-winning trainer Bob Baffert has been suspended for 15 days by the Arkansas Racing Commission after two of his horses tested positive for a banned substance.

The stewards said in a ruling announced Wednesday that the suspension will run Aug. 1-15. The Oaklawn Park stewards found Baffert violated Rule 1233, which states that a trainer shall ultimately be responsible for the condition of any horse that is entered regardless of the acts of any third parties.

His horses Charlatan and Gamine each tested positive for lidocaine in two rounds of testing after winning races at the Hot Springs, Arkansas, track on May 2.

The commission disqualified both horses and stripped them of their purse earnings. Charlatan’s owners lost $300,000 in purse money; Gamine’s owners forfeited $36,000.

According to the Kentucky Equine Research, it’s a man-made steroid that resembles cortisol – a natural hormone produced by the adrenal gland. Officials said corticosteroid drugs are administered into the joints which can give horses relief from discomfort or inflammation.

Failure to comply with the rules and medication protocols jeopardizes the safety of the horses and jockeys, the integrity of our sport and the reputation of the Kentucky Derby and all who participate,” the track said in a statement. “Churchill Downs will not tolerate it.” This is not the first time Baffert has been suspended due to failed drug tests. In the past year alone, the seven-time Derby winner has had to answer for five failed tests.

https://www.whas11.com/article/sports/horses/bob-baffert-derby-horse-drug-test-positive/417-558c86b0-fa1a-4d4a-9355-90412f53e0e7

That story’s getting harder and harder to swallow every time I hear it, Bob. I heard about the incident in Arkansas right before I went to place a bet on Medina Spirit. I guess it’s kismet that I was given the wrong race because I lost anyway. A positive test from incidental contact rising to twice the legal level allowable at Churchill Downs is not even slightly believable. If this is to be believed, and it’s honestly not from my perspective, then it’s an ongoing pattern of behavior you’re aware of and still it continues to plague your horses. Why you is a great question, Bob.

https://www.whas11.com/article/sports/horses/betamethasone-medina-spirit-kentucky-derby-winner-bob-baffert-trainer/417-5e45ed1e-5625-4901-925c-4fbc45254210

Why do your horses keep getting disqualified for “incidental doping”? And now this just came in three hours ago from Yahoo News and NBC Sports: https://sports.yahoo.com/medina-spirit-heads-preakness-minus-191910519.html

Medina Spirit heads to Preakness, minus trainer Bob Baffert

I am not even going to apologize because I have to call bullshit on that. Is that how cheating becomes a viable option? You run a doped horse, you win of course, and then you tie the ultimate decision up in court until the cows come home. Nice legal ploy but it’s still horseshit no matter how you slice it. If a horse is that high then the trainer should bear the burden of proof to show why and should rightfully be suspended until they do so to the satisfaction of the State. It’s unthinkable that the racing boards in every state Bob chooses to run in now is going to be facing this same situation, and Bob has no idea why. I have a pretty good idea why and as much as it pains me to say it because I truly believed in you, Bob. When does someone with the reins of common sense still in their grip step up and say, whoa. That’s a bunch of bullshit! When? Next time, or will it be the time after that? After a horse dies? When?

You keep blaming it on another man who wears pain patches being in contact with the horses. Let’s look at that logically. If an employee is in a lot of pain that’s cause enough for concern to any employer. It certainly should be, shouldn’t it? I think so. But if this man gets 5 horses disqualified, one of those being the winner of the Kentucky Derby of all things, doesn’t that problem point itself out? Yep. To me it also spells complicity, Bob.

The last time something like this happened it took years to resolve. That’s an unacceptable loophole that Bob seems to enjoy exploiting. And low and behold he has a lawyer who thinks he can pull wool over everyone’s eyes. If this practice was fair and just then why isn’t everybody doing it? My best guess would be integrity probably got the better of them. But that’s just my learned guess. You can make up your own minds. The original sample is now going to be re-tested. If the violation is upheld, Medina Spirit could be disqualified, and the runner-up, Mandaloun would then be the winner. In the meantime Bob’s horses continue to run unchallenged?

In my professional opinion this stinks worse than last weeks bait left out in the sun.

Greetings sports fans and welcome back to yet another thrilling adventure called Vegas Valley Sports Beat. That tasty little meatball of a column that goes great with Fava beans, and a nice Chianti. It’s a beautiful Sunday evening here in the Las Vegas Valley region leave thermometer on the barn wall says it’s 62 degrees at 7:30 p.m. much hotter days are coming soon so enjoy the cool weather while you can.

Yesterday was the 147th running of the Kentucky Derby and yours truly had a bet on a horse to win for the first time ever. I woke up yesterday morning and turned on my work computer to find an article on the news wire to the effect that renowned horse trainer, Bob Baffert was saying that his horse, number 8 Medina Spirit wasn’t fast enough to keep up with the favorites in the race. I knew right away that Bob Baffert was probably full of baloney as did the author of the article. So, determined WAS I to put some money on Medina Spirit to win. I got up and went straight away by means of various detours to the William Hill sports book at the Pahrump Nugget and I got there just in the nick of time to put $20 on #8 Medina Spirit to win.

I wandered around the casino playing keno and what not so I didn’t actually see the race but many people throughout the day agreed with my assessment including the writer of that article previously mentioned that Bob Baffert was probably full of baloney. Nobody believed it. Well, nobody but the fool that reportedly wagered $2.5 million dollars of the favorite to win. When I got to the Sportsbook to see who won the bookie was talking about it with two customers and I asked who won sure enough Bob Baffert’s horse had just won the Kentucky Derby again. I was like WOOHOO! So I handed the bookie my ticket and he ran it through machine and informed me they had give me the 10th race not the 8th. I specifically stated I wanted to bet on number eight to win the Kentucky Derby and the woman gave me the wrong race. I learned a very hard lesson that she has to be watched because she apparently doesn’t understand English, or doesn’t know how to do her job. Whatever it was it was my fault for not checking the ticket before I picked it up. There was nothing I could do about it and the number eight horse whoever it was, did not win the 10th race. Number 8 won the eighth race though. To say I was incredulous and pissed is an extreme understatement but what could I do? Nothing.

It’s nice to know that I picked the winning horse my first time ever betting on the Kentucky Derby, but it was a painful lesson in personal responsibility at the hands Sportsbook for me. I didn’t think to check it because I didn’t think I had to check it. I thought I made myself perfectly clear, but obviously I did not. I hope William Hill is very proud of himself he got me for a hot smoking twenty bucks and saved himself from having to pay me over $300 for the win. That’s a pretty janky business practice if you ask me. I wonder how many other people they got that way. If you screw up it’s your fault if they screw up it’s your fault too. No wonder the house never loses.

Again the operating catchphrase here is caveat emptor, or, let the buyer beware. Before you put your hand on a sports bet ticket look at it carefully and make sure it is exactly what you ordered or you too could get pencil whipped this way. I’m just glad I didn’t go balls out and bet a thousand dollars on Bob’s horse to win. I don’t mind losing and honest bet I’ve lost that much on the Super Bowl when the Broncos threw it away, and blatantly I might add, to the Seattle Seahawks. But to be cheated out of it like that by an incompetent, or unscrupulous licensed bookie is really foul in my book. That’s all I have to say about it.

Congratulations are in order for Robert Baffert on his historic 7th record -breaking Kentucky Derby win. It’s astounding but I think I know how he gets his horses to win. That is not by any means to imply cheating of any kind. Long before I ever heard of Bob Baffert, I wrote to my Nephew Luke that if I ever had the money I’d buy a decent Thoroughbred and train it to go the distance at Belmont. I said I would also train my horse to love winning races. To live for post time and the roar of the crowd as the gates drop and the track announcer cries, aaand, they’re off! I said I’d teach my horse to never let another horse get ahead of him, to get up front and stay up front to the wire. Once I felt he was ready, I’d call him Bob’s Your Uncle, and I’d win the Triple Crown with him.

It almost has to be or certainly should be a law that says if you win the Kentucky Derby you have to make a run at the Triple Crown. Otherwise what’s the point of running in the Derby? I personally have all faith in Bob’s ability to produce a third Triple Crown winner, and I think Medina Spirit has as good a chance as anyone else does and he deserves a shot at the title.. Let him run Bob. Please?

Here’s Bob’s take on Medina Spirit making a run at the Triple Crown, and recap of the derby from the horse’s mouth so to speak.

“Can he win the Triple Crown? I don’t know. But he’s the Derby winner, and that’s all that matters,” Baffert said Sunday morning at Barn 33. “I was coming in here, thinking, I wasn’t sure (if Medina Spirit could win the Derby), everything had to go perfect for him. We were going to go to the lead, and see what happened. What if they challenged him? He made the lead pretty easily, for him, and the other speed horse didn’t break (Rock Your World). That’s what it’s like in the Derby: You have to get the trip; the other speed horse didn’t get the trip. 

“Going down the backside, he was doing it easy, you could tell he was enjoying himself. His ears were forward. And turning for home, they came for him, and he just dug in. I didn’t know if he was going to do it. He fought hard, and ran sort of the same race that he did at Santa Anita when he won the Robert Lewis. They came to him, and he fended them all off. 

“I couldn’t believe it, at the sixteenth pole he was fighting and fighting. It was just a thrill to watch him do it, and fight on.  

“And he came back, he’s handling it quite well. He wasn’t as tired as I thought he might be. A big race like that, but he handled it quite well.” 

“When they turned for home, I was still not convinced,” Baffert said. “We didn’t start screaming and yelling until about the sixteenth pole, when it looked like it was do-able. In that last hundred yards, we all were screaming and yelling like it was my first Derby. We were like crazy, crazy. That’s what the Derby does to you. There’s no other race like it. The seven hasn’t quite sunk in yet. And to do it with a $35,000 horse. It gives people hope, keeps their dreams alive. Actually he was the cheapest yearling, since he cost $1,000. But he’s a beautiful horse, a good-looking horse.  

The obvious question following the Derby triumph is the Pimlico question: on to the Preakness? 

“He came out of it well. It takes about a week to determine, so I’m going to come back next weekend and see,” Baffert said. “But I don’t see anything discouraging right now.  Concert Tour worked well this morning (five furlongs in 1:00.60 at 5:50), I’ll sit down and talk to Mr. (GaryWest. He wants that horse to develop and we’re not rushing things. We know he’s a good horse, so we’ll see next week how he is. The thing is how they’re training. They both would have to be training well.”

Congratulations also to the owners, Zedan Racing and to Medina Spirit for winning the Kentucky Derby. Good luck in the Preakness, and then let’s hope Medina Spirit will go on to Belmont and chase history.

JUSTICE: Twitter held accountable for censoring Project Veritas

From James O’Keefe on 25.03.2021

Veritas Logo

Dear Friends,

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who testified before Congress today, claimed that the tech giant doesn’t have a “Censorship Department.” I beg to differ.

As you probably saw earlier this week, Project Veritas released shocking images from inside a Texas detention facility, showing illegal immigrants wrapped in space blankets and cramped into tight spaces.

Upon launching the images on our social media platforms, Twitter decided through an “automated tool” to label them “sensitive content”: 

Of course, all Twitter did in the end was CENSOR THE TRUTH.

Breitbart journalist Allum Bokhari reached out to Twitter, asking them why they would label such newsworthy images that way. A Twitter spokesperson responded saying the warning was “incorrectly applied by one of our automated tools and it has since been removed.”

Here is my response to Twitter’s statement:

By the way, I’m still waiting on an answer here, Jack.

This story made headlines in other media outlets as well. Here is what went to print on today’s edition of the New York Post:

The Independent, a British media outlet, also reported on this story:

This isn’t the first time Twitter censored Project Veritas. Unfortunately, I don’t think it will be the last.

My promise to you is that every time they censor the truth, Project Veritas will be there to hold them accountable.

RETRACTION #336: Huff Post’s Luke O’Brien inducted to the Wall of Shame

From Project Veritas on 26.03.2021

Veritas Logo

Dear Friend,

Today Project Veritas is inducting none other than Luke O’Brien, now former Huffington Post “journalist,” to the infamous Wall of Shame.

O’Brien thought he could lie about O’Keefe’s visit to former Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office in 2010 and get away with it.

Here is how Project Veritas held him accountable:

These Fake News journalists never seem to be able to get this story right. They’re always so excited to say O’Keefe attempted to tamper with Landrieu’s phone system.

Of course, we will never let them get away with it.

Here is what O’Brien wrote in his article originally:

FALSE. O’Keefe never did that Luke.

In fact, an Assistant United States Attorney by the name of Jordan Ginsberg issued the following statement pertaining to O’Keefe’s visit to Landrieu’s office:

Did you catch that Luke?

Let’s say it again:

O’Keefe’s mission in that case was to “orchestrate a conversation about phone calls to the Senator’s staff and capture the conversation on video, not to actually tamper with the phone system, or to commit any other felony.”

As a result, O’Brien had to update his article with the following:

And there it is. Some truth at last.

Thank you for providing “further clarity” on your story, Luke. We think you owe the public the truth more often.

In the meantime, we will be hanging this latest retraction frame on our Wall of Shame where it shall live in infamy — forever.

In Truth,

Win the gun Joe Biden wants banned!

From Marjorie Taylor Greene on March 24, 2021

Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats in Congress are working to impose the most radical gun-control schemes into law. 

This is the most VICIOUS attacks on the Second Amendment our country as ever seen.

As the #1 defender of gun rights in Congress, I will always fight against dangerous “Red Flag” gun confiscation, magazine bans, ammo bans and every other plot to strip away your Second Amendment rights. 

In fact, in support of our Second Amendment, the right that protects all others, I’m giving away the same type of gun the left wants to ban!

Enter To Win the Honey Badger!

This is the same type of gun that TRIGGERS the Fake News Media and Democrats all across the country.

And it’s the same type of gun the hate-America gun-grabbers in DC would love to BAN if they ever get the votes.

Valued at $2,860 Someone has to win it … might as well be you! 

After you enter to win, you can enter to win a second time by chipping in with a contribution! But hurry! FEC deadline in March 31!

Enter To Win the Honey Badger!

America won’t last if this happens

From Marjorie Taylor Greene on March 23. 2021

2021 is gearing up to be America’s most critical year in decades. 

America’s southern border has been ripped wide open with millions of illegal immigrants marching through our border. 

Washington D.C and Puerto Rico could be granted statehood.

And Nancy Pelosi is working to seize total control over America’s elections — guaranteeing Republicans never win a national election again. . .

These are the radical socialist power grabs I’m fighting in the halls of Congress. 

Because I refuse to back down, the Fake News Media and the Silicon Valley Cartel painted a huge red target on my back and I’ve become Democrat Enemy #1

EMERGENCY DONATE $25 OR MORE BEFORE MARCH 31 FEC DEADLINE

Already, Democrats are pouring MILLIONS of dollars to unseat me in the next election.

Even some RINO “Republicans” are threatening to primary me. 

I refuse to be intimidated. 

In fact, I’m more emboldened than ever. But the truth is, in order to beat back the Establishment, I must have a campaign warchest to defeat the Democrats.

And that’s where I need your help in the fight ahead. 

You see, every three months, I’m required by the FEC to file my End-of-Quarter report. This is where Democrat-hack operative and Fake News “journalists” comb through my reports, looking for any sign of weakness in grassroots support.

These reports are critical to show everyone just who the grassroots conservative movement supports.

But more importantly, these resources help me combat the Fake News narrative they want to portray me (and you) as.

Emails, text messages, phone calls, radio and TV ads, graphics, videos. . . every bit helps

I’ve set an ambitious goal of raising $250,000 before the March 31 FEC Deadline.

Do you think you can spare a quick donation of $25 or more to help me reach my goal?

If there’s ever been a more critical time to support me, Charles, its right now. 

No Republican has been attacked like me since President Trump.

The Democrats, Big Tech, and the Fake News Media are on a full-frontal attack to shut me up and shut me down without me having the ability to defend myself. 

EMERGENCY DONATE $25 OR MORE BEFORE MARCH 31 FEC DEADLINE

As a Christian, a wife, a mother of three, and a small business owner, I ran for Congress to support President Trump and his America First policies.

I’m sick and tired of seeing these hate-America leftists like AOC, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib trying to ram through their socialist agenda and wreck our country. 

And because I’m in their way, the Democrats and Fake News Media want to take me out next election.

So please, rush an emergency donation of $15, $25, $50, $100 or more right away. 

On top of Democrats trying to remove me from office, the Fake News writes nonstop hit pieces, and the Silicon Valley Cartel is always trying to shut me down.

But I will not be intimidated or silenced because I have the support of you, the people!

And it is critical I show a STRONG FEC Report when the Fake News and Democrat operatives comb through my filing to see any weakness in support. 

If you stand with me, please, chip in with whatever you can afford. Every bit helps me fight back through email, text messages, phone calls and even social media (when I’m not censored!).

EMERGENCY DONATE $25 OR MORE BEFORE MARCH 31 FEC DEADLINE

Even if it’s just $10, every dollar goes a long way.

Thanks so much. I will keep you updated.

A Forrest for Every Jenny

Alternate text
From The Epoch Times on 26.01.2021
Alternate text

Recently, a friend told me that she’s never seen Forrest Gump before—which is a crime in my house. So I made her watch the movie with me (spoilers ahead). 

In light of recent events, this movie has taken on a new meaning for me. 

Though Forrest and Jenny started “like peas and carrots,” each of them soon got swept up by a different one of America’s 20th-century cultural currents. 

Forrest’s path was classically American: going to college, playing football, serving his country, starting his own business, and going to church. 

Jenny, on the other hand, dabbles in counterculture: dropping out of college, becoming a beatnik and then a hippie, joining the anti-war protests, indulging in the sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll of the ‘70s. 

In these two characters, I saw a reflection of today’s America—with one side supporting the American tradition and the other opposing it. 

Jenny’s path finds her used and abused multiple times, first as a sex worker and then as a girlfriend. While she experiences momentary freedom as a hippie, she eventually devolves into a groupie who steals from the musicians she sleeps with and hits her lowest point when she attempts suicide.

But Forrest never stops loving Jenny, no matter how much their paths deviated from each other. He gets rejected by her multiple times but remains there for her through everything—never imposing, never selfish, never angry, always altruistic. 

It’s precisely because of Forrest’s love that Jenny is able to find happiness in the end, and it’s a kind of love that I think we can use more of in our society today. 

2020 has shown me the destructive power of the forces that are working against our traditional values. Coming from a communist country, I know that these forces don’t just destroy their enemies: they also destroy the same people who advocate for them. 

Many people around me don’t truly understand these forces, however, and they’re people I care for deeply. Like Jenny, they were attracted to the prospect of freedom that these forces offered, and like Jenny, they’re unable to see the destruction that these forces could cause to a person. 

It’s not easy, but I think that the best thing I can do for them is to be their Forrest. Even though they may seem to be confident in their decisions now, I have to be there for them with compassion and patience. I have to love them simply and selflessly; I have to stay firm in my own convictions and not give up. 

For history tells me that one day, they might regret their decisions. When that day comes, they’re going to need someone there to help bring them back.

The Sign You’ve Been Waiting For

Alternate text
From The Epoch Times on 23.01.2021
Alternate text

Back in college, I worked part-time at a call center. It was an interesting experience, not in the least because I got the most random comments on my voice. People would try to guess which region of the country I was from (apparently I had no discernible accent) or ask if I did radio or sang.

When I replied that I didn’t, the response was almost always, “Well you should!”

Once, a kind old lady was about to hang up when she asked me, “Sweetie, do you sing?”

“No, but you’re not the first customer who’s asked,” I said. “Maybe I should.”

“You definitely should. You have a lovely voice,” she said.

She paused, then laughed to herself.

“You know, when you hear the same thing from strangers twice, I like to think that’s God trying to tell you a little something.”

Years later, I still don’t sing (or at least not yet). But what that old woman said stuck with me. 

So if you need a stranger to tell you this today, here it is: don’t give up hope for goodness in the world. Protect the kindness in your heart. Stay firm in your desire for truth and justice. Rest well so that when the time comes, you can stand up for your principles with integrity and compassion. And when you look back on your life, you can have a clear conscience knowing that you did all you could to live with honor and righteousness.

Yes, it would be easier to just hole up and avoid the news. It would be easier to forget the reality that we’re living in. It would be easier to give up hope. It would be easier to quit my job and find another one where I don’t have to deal with such heavy issues. On some days, despair can look pretty tempting.

But on those days, I remember that I could be someone’s second stranger. I remember that if I can hold onto the goodness in my own heart and not be afraid to live it out, I could perhaps be that message from God for someone else.


I hope that I’m the second stranger to tell you this. If I’m not, if this is the first time you’ve heard this from a stranger, then I hope that a second stranger will be coming your way soon with the same message.

PUBLISHER’S NOTES:

Thank you to the Epoch Times for upholding the 4th estate and truth in Journalism.

THE MAGA COUNTERPUNCH IS QUO WARRANTO IN DC DISTRICT COURT:

Show The Receipts Of Election Fraud

Natural Born Citizen

See my previous reports for case law and analysis of the federal quo warranto statute. The bottom line is that SCOTUS has held that an election of any United States official can be challenged based on fraud or error by a writ of quo warranto. And the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals recently held that the proper venue to challenge the election of a sitting President is the D.C. District Court. We have a statute. We have a venue. Bring the receipts, President Trump.

If you don’t bring the receipts by quo warranto, then you will have quit. It’s all in or all out. There’s no other options left. This must be done. You have to give the proper law in the proper venue a chance. If you quit now, it will be broadcast as an admission that there was no fraud, error, or lawlessness by election officials.

Only the title has ben changed, to protect the innocent. The guilty party already knows WHO they are.

The Governor Who Stole Christmas.

By: Cindy Lou Who.

Every Who Down in Whoville (Nevada) Liked Christmas a lot…
But the Grinch, Who lived just north (Carson City), Did NOT!
The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason

.CHIP-IN TO GET RID OF GOVERNOR GRINCH >>

Grinch

(We can’t think of a better representation of how Governor Grinch feels about us here in Whoville with his patronizing slogans and messages)

It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
But I think that the most likely reason of all,
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.

“I MUST find some way to stop Christmas from coming!”
Then the Whos down in Whoville will all cry BooHoo!”
“That’s a noise,” grinned the Grinch, “That I simply MUST hear!”

CHIP-IN TO GET RID OF GOVERNOR GRINCH >>

Overreaching government mandates with no Constitutional basis, hypocritical regulations, and holiday restrictions… 

Governor Grinch has made it very clear how he feels about us down here in Whoville, and that he is not going to have a change of heart.

TAKE BACK our holidays, time with our families, our economy, our freedoms, and our great state.

Chip-in to help us GET RID OF GOVERNOR GRINCH >>

Together from Whoville,

Little Cindy Lou Who

Collins Presses Georgia Secretary of State Raffensperger

– November 10, 2020 –

Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. released the following statement from Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), who leads President Trump’s campaign’s recount team in Georgia:

“As we begin the recount process, there are three things we are formally requesting today from Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. First, there must be a full comparison of absentee ballots cast and in-person and provisional ballots cast throughout the state. Second, there must be a check for felons and other ineligible persons who may have cast a ballot. Third, and most importantly, the Secretary of State should announce a full hand-count of every ballot cast in each and every county due to widespread allegations of voter irregularities, issues with voting machines, and poll watcher access. We can – and we will – petition for this in court after statewide certification is completed if the Secretary of State fails to act, but we are hopeful he will preemptively take this action today to ensure every Georgian has confidence in our electoral process.”

Catch A Rising Star, Introducing, Thata`

Greetings sports fans and welcome to a long-overdue edition of Vegas Valley Sports Beat, that spicy little meatball of a column that doesn’t know when to quit so it just wanders off whenever the mood strikes. Much like Joe Biden but without all the treason.

What an incredibly beautiful day it was in the verdant Vegas Valley region today. The temperature was at record high levels for the 5th day of Novembrrr but that shouldn’t be much more of a problem for the rest of the year now. With any luck we’ll see a little rain in the next day or two because after 200 days without rain the pastures that our wild Mustang herds graze on through the winter are going to be very sparse indeed.

As a long-time musician and music lover the best thing that can happen is to wander into a tiny hole-in-the-wall jazz cafe that’s tucked away in the most unlikely of all places possible, and discover as it were a rare musical gem is playing there. Such was the case for me earlier this evening when I was lucky enough to be looking over a dating website called TWOO and I happened upon a global show featuring the singing debut of a wonderful young vocalist named Thata`.

I caught the tail-end of the show but the audience was treated to several songs including a Brazilian love ballad that set my Spanish blood to percolating. Okay not really but it was very beautiful nonetheless and it did give me some chills it was that pretty.

I think we can agree that there are more shallow musical artists than you can shake a stick at on TWOO, or on the big stage but That`a is very warm and genuine. I tried to check out some girl band and they were nothing but rude so I split. If they never succeed I will not wonder why.

Some dumbass in the band, or hanger on, wannabe section of it told me to buy them an electronic trinket and they’d play. Like that’ll ever happen. Pass me by with all of that noise. They were slovenly and stupid rude fools who blew a chance to get their music out in front of a larger audience. Too bad for them.

A sharp contrast to Thata,`who, in spite of being a bit nervous, performed more like a seasoned professional than a newcomer to the world musical stage. Her hair was beautifully coifed, and she wore a very smart outfit that complimented her jet-black ponytail, and her earrings were stunning.

But for me what stood out in a world chock-full of good singer’s was how she comported herself with her fans. Those are the people that buy the new music downloads, tickets and CDs. Failing to take care of them can have consequences on payday, but taking that much time and effort to reach out to her audience is what set her apart from a bunch of wannbe’s. I very seriously doubt Thata` will have that problem.

I cannot even guess where, or when you might see , Thata` performing live in your town in the future but I am willing to bet good money that she will be in your hearts, minds, and living room, and making her way to the top of the charts in record time. Good luck, Thata`.

Break a leg.

A Clinton-Voting, Biden-Donating Democrat Runs the Fox News Decision Desk

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is c8c1cedafccc671a437f430f2d1fca41.jpg
From Trump War Room – November 05, 2020 

A Democrat operative put his finger on the scale and declared Joe Biden the winner before the votes were counted.

Arnon Mishkin, the director of Fox News’ election decision desk, prematurely called Arizona for Joe Biden before hundreds of thousands of ballots had been counted. Even left-leaning election analysts like Nate Silver have criticized the decision, but Mishkin is standing by his terrible decision despite and refusing to retract his unjustified call.

Why would Mishkin put his finger on the scale for Joe Biden before so many votes are counted? Mishkin is a registered Democrat who voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, worked as a Democrat political consultant, and has a long record of donating to Democrats, including the 2008 Obama-Biden campaign.

As the votes are counted, President Trump continues to cut into Joe Biden’s lead in Arizona. Five major election decision organization have refused to follow Mishkin’s lead and call the race in Arizona, because they know what the Arizona Republic knows: “Trump received almost the exact share he would need to charge back to win Arizona’s 11 electoral votes and potentially reelection.”

As the News-Herald in Arizona said today, “Arizona [is] still in play”! Fox News (and the AP) must immediately rescind their call in Arizona.

The Trump Administration Scores Another Win for Peace

West Wing Reads
From The White House  – November 03, 2020


“We congratulate Sudan, Israel, and the United States on another landmark diplomatic agreement. The exchange of full diplomatic relations between Sudan and Israel is the third such Israeli-Arab agreement in two months. This achievement is not only historic but also morally and mutually beneficial,” the Washington Examiner editorial board writes.
 
“These are real and significant diplomatic triumphs for which the Trump administration deserves much credit . . . . Well done, Sudan. Well done, Israel. Well done, America.”

“Last week’s rioting in Philadelphia barely registered on the national consciousness. In two days of mayhem, over 200 business establishments—liquor stores, Dollar Stores, sneaker stores, banks, clothing stores, and restaurants—were looted and torched; 57 officers were injured,” Heather Mac Donald writes. “Putting a lid on such reporting is not a public service.” Read more in City Journal.

“No matter where you stand, the truth is that arbitrarily halting oil and natural gas development would do serious harm to our economy, jeopardize America’s post-pandemic recovery, and deny ourselves of a critical innovation engine for cleaner technologies,” Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette writes for The Hill.

“Progressives in California in recent years have strengthened property rights—to other people’s property. Shoplifting has essentially been decriminalized, and retailers that apprehend thieves can be sued . . . In short, trying to protect one’s property can be a criminal offense,” The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes.

📺 OLD VIDEO: Venezuelan Dictator Nicolás Maduro Praises “Comrade Biden” in Resurfaced Video

From Equipo Trump  – October 31, 2020

“Comrade Biden …. he who smiles at us, we smile at him.”

Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro is seen praising “Comrade Biden” and describing their friendly 2015 meeting in a resurfaced video from that year. 

In an effort to shore up his lagging support among Latinos, Biden has claimed he “stood up” to Maduro, but the Venezuelan dictator said at the time that Biden actually sent his regards to Venezuela’s socialist national assembly. “He who smiles at us, we smile at him,” said Maduro to the South American nation’s socialist congress in response to his meeting with Biden. 

News reporters at the time said that Biden even complimented Nicolás Maduro on his hair! According to the AFP, Biden “praised the South American leader’s hair in the brief but good-natured Thursday exchange.”

Maduro is not Biden’s only socialist admirer.

  • Today, Bolivia’s former socialist ruler, Evo Morales, declared that he would “celebrate” should President Trump lose the 2020 election.
     
  • Last week, Maduro’s top thug, Diosdado Cabello, suggested that a Biden victory would bring a Venezuelan-style socialist revolution to the United States.
     
  • Colombian Castro-Chavista and former M-19 guerrilla leader, Gustavo Petro, also recently declared his support for Biden. 

It’s easy to understand why Joe Biden is in serious trouble in Florida. Hispanic Americans do not want socialism!

President Trump wants to help ICE abolish human trafficking. Biden ordered them to stop.

1600 Daily
From The White House – October 21, 2020 

Democrats want to abolish ICE.

In 2018 alone, more than 23,000 human trafficking victims were identified in the United States. Of these victims, 65% were women. More than 1 in 5 were children.
 
It’s a “level of evil that you would never believe is even possible in a modern age,” President Trump said in January. “The level of evil is incredible.”
 
President Trump has joined law enforcement officers to fight for the voiceless and end this scourge of modern-day slavery in our country. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)—which Democrats have called to be abolished—has arrested more than 5,000 human traffickers over just the past three years.
 
“I want to thank ICE. They have been incredible,” President Trump said.
 
Rather than dismantle law enforcement agencies, as the far left demands, President Trump has doubled funding for the Department of Justice to combat human trafficking.
 
The President also signed the largest DOJ grant package in history to stop trafficking. It included, for the first time ever, grants to provide safe housing for survivors.
 
All told, since taking office, President Trump has signed nine pieces of bipartisan legislation that target human traffickers, both domestically and internationally.
 
This week, the Trump Administration released its National Action Plan to build on these important steps. It lays out a strategy in three parts: prevention of trafficking, protection for victims, and prosecution for the criminals who fuel this evil industry.
 
In January, President Trump recognized the 20th Anniversary of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. That day, he signed an Executive Order on Combating Human Trafficking and Online Child Exploitation in the United States. With that order, he created the first-ever White House position focused solely on ending trafficking.
 
Americans also heard that day from Bella Hounakey, a survivor of trafficking whom President Trump invited to speak at the White House.
 
“At age 13, I was brought into this country. I survived trafficking, along with 19 other girls. Afterwards, I was placed in foster care, but this negative experience in my past should not wholly define who I am today,” she said.
 
“Today, I am a college graduate. Today, I am an American citizen.”
 
Last fiscal year, ICE initiated 1,024 human-trafficking and forced-labor related cases. These actions led to 2,197 criminal arrests, nearly 700 convictions, and, ultimately, the rescue of more than 400 victims.
 
📖 The Trump Administration Is Fighting the Evil of Human Trafficking

Under President Trump, our First Americans are being put first again!

President Trump is committed to honoring the heritage of America’s first inhabitants, our Native American communities. To that end, his Administration just released a plan to continue partnering with Native Americans to build a brighter future for all people.

The plan, titled “Putting America’s First Peoples First: Forgotten No More,” outlines President Trump’s core principles to fight for these communities:
Respecting tribal sovereignty and self-determination
 Promoting safe communities
 Building a thriving economy with improved infrastructure
 Honoring Native American heritage and improving education
 Delivering better health outcomes 
President Trump’s policies will add 51,000 Native American-owned businesses and up to 196,000 new jobs for tribal communities. In addition, tribal entrepreneurship will be supported through growing opportunities for access to Federal contracting.
 
With a priority on education, Federal investments will be increased in tribal colleges and universities, and $10 million is pledged to support the creation of new tribally operated charter schools. Federal funding will be doubled for the improvement of quality Bureau of Indian Education schools and other education options, as well.
 
The plan also continues to prioritize the important work of Operation Lady Justice, President Trump’s task force to address missing and murdered indigenous persons.

decimating election integrity

From April Becker on 13/08/2020

April Becker Logo

This is who I’m running against … the Democrat State Senate Majority leader who pushed through a sneaky bill in the middle of the night that changed our election laws and decimating election integrity here in Nevada.

Headlines

I have never been so motivated to win this seat and TAKE BACK THE STATE SENATE MAJORITY here in Nevada.PITCH-IN TO DEFEAT NICOLE CANNIZZARO. TAKE BACK THE STATE SENATE MAJORITY AND MAKE NEVADA RED AGAIN.

AB4 is a BAD BILL for Nevadans and BAD for Americans and we know exactly why Nevada Democrats wanted to push this bill through over the weekend while Nevadans weren’t watching …

Nevada is a swing state that could tip the scales in November. 

THAT is just how important our Nevada Legislature can be — not just for us here at home, but for the nation. 

Will you help me take this seat from Democrat Nicole Cannizzaro? Together, we can stop the ruling class in Carson City’s continued assault on our election process, small businesses, and our freedoms. Chip-in now to flip this seat back and MAKE NEVADA RED AGAIN >>

I’m done letting special interest groups decide the future of my great state. Are you? 

Fight with me. Chip-in $5, $20, $150 or whatever you can now to TAKE BACK THE STATE SENATE MAJORITY and MAKE NEVADA RED AGAIN. 

Thank you,
April Becker

P.S. Will you make sure your friends and family know about our race and just how important it is for winning back the State Senate Majority here in Nevada?

NUFF SAID. AGAIN.

https://twitter.com/i/status/1178676879483527168

I have stood before an officer of the United States Marine Corps and taken the oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies both foreign and domestic and I have taken it 4 other times since so I will not repeat it again here except to say that I was sworn into the Marine Corps while I was still attached to the USAF and as far as I know I have never been released from that oath.

I know that every word spoken by the President in this video is the absolute truth and I know for a fact that there is a lot he left unsaid because he has already said it before. Donald Trump has been true to his every word and the Democrats have nothing to show for this whole time but a pack of lies. Lies told to us again and again by liars both in the tabloid presses and in Congress. Robert Mueller knew long before he drew his inconclusive conclusion to the Russsian collusion delusion that the whole thing was predicated on falsified evidence. I knew it then and so did he. Either that or he’s unbelievably stupid.

If they do not rein in their paid jackals, thugs, and thieves from pillaging, robbing, raping, looting, and burning then the consequences are not going to fall on those people whom they have clearly and deliberately with malice aforethought misled down this path but those who have misled them. Justice is going to fall swiftly upon the head of the snake and it is going to be cut off.

The Democrat Party of my Father and his father before him is dead and gone. It has been subverted and perverted by the left-wing radicals such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez whose name makes me want to spew it from my mouth like an especially nasty tasting loogie. Unmasked socialists like her and Bernie Sanders want to make America into the United Socialist States of America and that is never going to happen even if it means hunting every last one of them to extinction. Dead or alive there will be retribution for this insurrectionist movement against the people of the United States and we know where they live.

If I have to die for standing up for what I know is good and just then I’ll be singing my death song when I storm the gates of Hell. Bet your ass I’ll have plenty of liberals coming with me and the armies of Heaven at my back.

I do not like to preach even though I am a pastor I did that for my own reasons unrelated to proselytizing which I don’ t do. God Himself said that all are not meant to hear the Word of God or to understand it no matter what you say to them or show them.

I have said it before and I am not likely to say it more often but I know if I say nothing then I am complicit if even one of His sheep should be led astray by the lies of the enemy. I have known nearly my entire life that this day was coming. It has been shown to me in visions many times and I have been struggling to understand it and come to terms with it and I have.

I spent many hours seeking God in my youth seeking to know the truth and I eventually found it. I never even wanted to believe it was true or not true, but now here we are and it’s all happening just as I saw it. There is no doubt whatsoever that God is real, the Jesus Christ was crucified by the same Philistines that seek to destroy the last bastion of God and freedom on the planet so that they can usher in their ideal of a new world order whereby every man is not free but made a slave to the state that provides for their every comfort. Velvet chains are still chains, a gilded cage is still a cage.

The Book of Revelations warned us specifically about this point in history and those who have understanding have reckoned the number of the beast. The meaning of this passage is the sheer number of people who are doing their own thing and walking contrary to God. They claim they rape, rob, and kill in the name of Justice but I have bad bad news for those fools. The Archangel, Michael holds the scales of Justice in his hand and a sword in the other, and Justice is coming for them. Mark it on your calendar.

These same people are shaking their pathetic little fists at God and challenging Him to a fight. As I told you all last Easter Sunday when the churches in Sri Lanka were bombed and many innocent people lost their lives for going to worship God in His house this is God’s fight and we are not to take part in it lest we too should be destroyed when He returns in HIs fury to avenge the meek. Even so, we do have a legal and moral obligation to defend our neighbors from evil.

This was one very serious mistake on their part and now they are compounding that error by way of this insurrection. A poorly disguised movement for justice that is clearly and deliberately aimed at taking down the Trump administration and the United States with him to hide their crimes and finish the task of selling America to the highest bidder. Which, according to President Trump, and other, even more, reliable sources, was China.

https://www.theepochtimes.com/spygate-the-inside-story-behind-the-alleged-plot-to-take-down-trump_2833074.html

There is no doubt in any right-thinking person’s mind that mail-in ballots are nothing more than a pathetic attempt by Congress and the DNC to continue their scheme to gerrymander enough key districts in certain states that would keep a Republican candidate from ever being able to attain the Oval Office again. We have seen remnants of that plan where Democrats in Congress have tried to get that garbage past the courts and were shot down. Already there have been so many accounts of ballot fraud and mishandling of the ballots that the very idea there is any integrity associated with mail-order elections is beyond laughable.

Democrats have openly petitioned the courts in Nevada and other states to allow ballot harvesting and have sought the reversal or dismissal of laws related to fair elections. When the courts have determined before this time that the election processes are fair as they sit then the only possible reason anyone could have for contesting them and opposing them diametrically is that they want to introduce fraud into the process but are being kept from doing so by pesky fair play laws.

There is already no way to say there has been fairness in the process and it’s not even close to election day yet.

What the actual fuck people?

They can march around together all night standing shoulder to shoulder in the streets and burn the nation to the ground but they cannot go to their local polling stations and vote because they might catch a virus? Are you freaking kidding me? I call BULLSHIT!

We have already witnessed the power of the DNC over mail-order election fraud in California in the 2016 elections. A number of Republican candidates were leading in the exit polls by a wide margin when out of the clear blue sky comes 200,00 mail-in ballots and every last one of them voted Democrat. Imagine that. Governor Newsome who happens to be related to Nancy Pelosi (no big surprise there), won by 200,000 votes. Hm. What a strange and fortuitous coincidence said nobody. Even stranger still was the fact that 60,000 of those ballots were missing the same vote for Senator. Hm. Wonder how that might have happened? Not.

Ballot mill.

The FBI’s forensic documents labs in Quantico, Virginia will be able to make short work of that issue I’m sure. I for one will never accept the results of any mail-order election. Not as long as people like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are around I won’t.

Again it must be said that I would just as soon watch the entire world thrown in the fire if that is the fate that the world should choose, individually that is. I know I won’t care about any of it after I leave this world so why start a pointless exercise like that now? I serve God and nothing, or nobody else. It is God’s wish merely that you should love one another as He has loved you.

To the extent that He gave His only begotten Son so that whosoever should believe in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life I think that is a fair request for God to make in return. As it is written there is no greater love than that a man should lay down his life for his brother. This is to be taken literally of course for there certainly is no greater love than that because that is the final act of love.

However, it doesn’t start nor stop there. It is not just for anyone who is actually, or theoretically willing to jump in front of a bullet meant for their kin or for their fellow man. It means that you are willing to give your life to taking care of people who are less fortunate than yourself no matter what your station in life might be. Love thy neighbor means that you shall give of yourself to those who have no hope of ever repaying your kindness in the knowledge that God will take care of you in return just as Jesus instructed His disciples to do when He sent them out to preach the Gospel of the Resurrection to the people. He said to them take nothing with you and pay no mind to how you are to survive and His word is still law today.

That is the meaning of life is that we understand we are all a part of God and He is part of us and that we hopefully choose eternal life over unending pain and fiery death in the end. Once you learn to love your neighbor as yourself then you begin to see the magic that is God and how itis within you yourself.

Christianity is not a religion. We are Christians simply because we acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the living temple of God and the only way that we can be saved from the nature of this world. And in case anyone has since forgotten, the Earth was given to Satan by God to do as he pleased upon it.

He certainly has been busy you have to give Satan that much. He got a bunch of fools to build Hollywood and make a liberal Disneyland out of the entire state of California and now he is gleefully watching those same misguided souls burn down their only hope for freedom in the entire world. America.

I know for a fact that you know a tree by its fruit and the only fruit the so-called protestors, left-wing radicals, and the Democrat Party that controls these factions has displayed to me is evil, cancerous, and perverse and now we must face a final decision. Who’s side are we on?

In this, I would strongly advise you all to consider your answer wisely because this is the final act of mankind. The final page has turned and this is us coming to the end as has been foretold for centuries. I am sure a lot of people right now are watching the events unfolding all over the world and asking themselves what the actual fuck is going on here? This is what it is. A literal battle between good and evil being played out on the world stage between the DNC and one man. President Donald J. Trump.

If Trump was all they were after I would likely say let them have him. Throw Trump to the dogs and let that be the end of it but that will never be the end of it. Why not you ask? I’m glad you asked. It’s because they’re not after Trump, they are after you. And your progeny. That much has become crystal clear since the very minute Trump was elected and the Dims began saying now we have to impeach him.

I voted for Hillary so I was like what the actual fuck is that all about? That’s not Kosher at all. And then I began to see more and more evidence of sedition and still, I watched. I spoke on much of it throughout the entire past 4 years. I’m pretty sure I was the first to label the collusion delusion a witch hunt because that was how it struck me from the beginning. I knew it was all smoke, mirrors, and a liberal dose of media bullshit and I said it was nothing but a fishing expedition that was going to lead to no good end for those fishing.

I was right of course, and now, by the grace of God, the Democrats have been forced to expose themselves for what they really are. Evil incarnate. One massive criminal enterprise with tendrils that reach down into the lowest levels of state and even local governments.

Why? Because that’s how you drain a treasury. You steal it all through legal channels that you have conveniently legislated in your own favor. How does that work one might ask? I’m so glad one asked. By setting less innocuous laws in place that trigger the payment of monies through various programs which then go through endless licensing hoops, and are studied by committees that do nothing and bill the federal government exorbitantly for doing it through billable hours. Even so-called volunteers in offices that do not get paid are billing Uncle Sam for more hours per week than there are hours per week. In some of the worst cases of welfare fraud in the state of California, which incidentally gets 35% of the money allotted to welfare while the other 49 states are left to divide the rest up equally among themselves. Gee, I wonder how that ever came about. Not.

I also wonder how it is then that there are so many homeless Americans living on the streets of San Francisco. I remember when that was one of my Dad’s favorite TV shows back in the 21970’s. Now it only calls to mind images of people squatting and shitting in the streets of San Francisco. It calls to mind the images we have all seen of trash, human feces, used condoms, and used hypodermic needles, and worst of all used up human beings lying around all over the streets of San Francisco. Jesus wept but not Nancy Pelosi. Nope, not her no. She is too busy touting her freezer full of chocolate ice cream and her basket full of delicious chocolates to her adoring fans on late-night Television.

I honestly wanted to puke watching that vulgar display of inhumanity and the virtual blow job the host, who incidentally is of British origin, was giving her while she did it. For me, it was like watching history repeat itself. It was Marie Antoinette all over again saying let them eat cake but I guess since that has already been said, Nancy Pelosi went the opposite direction like a good little Satan worshiper always does and said let them eat ice cream.

People are finally waking up to the fact that America is under attack from within and from without. The Democrats have been forced into playing their end game by the election of Donald Trump and their repeated failures to take him down. and the consequences for the Democrat Party are going to be dire.

There’s little point in attacking the people in the streets if the head of the beast is still attached because that is the problem, not the protestors. We saw plenty of that during the first Civil War. Let us not forget who started that and why either or we fail to learn the lessons of history and are doomed to repeat it. Not so this time. The leaders of this attempted coup and those who have perpetrated these unconscionable acts of treason, sedition, and open warfare against the people of he United States by any person regardless of race or station will pay the fullest measure of devotion for their crimes.

I will happily tie the nooses and drop the trap doors on every last one of them myself if called upon to do so. I’ll even donate my time and do it for free if they’ll throw in transportation and lunch.

So let’s get back to the important issue. God. Why is all this happening when everything seemed to be going so well? You must surely have to be wondering that by now. That answer requires a brief history lesson. A very long time ago a group of Knights called the Templars discovered the Ark of the Covenant underneath the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. They picked up their shit and they hauled ass out of there with the bad guys hot on their heels because they had been ratted out by someone. There’s one in every crowd as Jesus can tell you,

Long story short it ended up here in the United States courtesy of the Order of Freemasons. Many of our founding Father’s as we all know now were members of the Freemasons and they buried the Ark underneath the Washington Monument after setting up the Democratic Republic of the United States of America. You can see their wisdom and foresight once you understand this is true in how they framed the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

It is self-evident to anyone that they were all too aware of what the future would hold for the people who would be called upon one day to defend it from their own government. That is why we have the First and Second Amendments. Each one is designed to protect the other. Without those protections in place and inviolable the people can easily be enslaved by their own elected officials.

Which brings us to the present day when it is happening all around us just as George Washington and many others who signed the Declaration of Independence feared it would. Just as Abraham Lincoln feared it would.

When President Trump tells you that this is a battle between good and evil he is not being the least bit facetious. That is precisely what it is. Even more so now because now that by and large, the left knows that the Ark of the Covenant is in Washington D.C. That is evidenced in the way they wasted no time proclaiming they were going to attack and dethrone God last week. That’s the funniest thing I have ever heard or ever will.

Those fools think that if they have control of the Ark they can make God serve them. I think we can all guess how that is going to end up except that it’s simply never going to happen to begin with. God does not serve anyone, all things serve God whether they like it or not.

The left as I’ve stated before have made their home on the Left Coast in Hollywood and have made fantasy and bullshit a way of life. Now we are finding out about the evils of an elitist drug called Adrenochrome. This drug is actually a hormone secreted by the adrenaline gland and it is far from new. It was first discovered in the 1930s. It is no secret but it actually is a secret because not even my computer’s dictionary knows the word. Not even the retired Pharmacologist I work part-time for knew the word when I asked him about it last night. But there it is if you watch Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. The main character in the true story movie, Gonzo Journalist, Hunter S. Thompson introduced us to it years ago by showing us how he was using it in the 1970s.

In the movie, Thompson’s “lawyer” produces the Adrenochrome and explains that it is extracted from the adrenal glands of freshly killed horses. Now we are finding out that the Hollywood A-list elite has been using Adrenochrome for many years and that it is being extracted not from horses but from missing children who are beaten, tortured until just the right time and then they are murdered and the raw Adrenochrome is extracted from their corpses.

2500 children disappear every day on this planet. Think about that while you ask yourself how Sandra Bullock, Johnny Depp, and Brad Pitt, just to name a few, still look the same after all these years. Conscience is catching up to Ellen as you can hear in this video on Facebook. She sounds like she’s ready to eat a bullet. It’s easy to ignore what you know is right when taking a stand means certain death for a career in Hollywood. That much is certain but you cannot escape yourself and you can only lie to yourself for so long before it catches up to you.

According to the Pharmacist I spoke with about Adrenochrome last night, the hormone was originally believed to be beneficial but then it turned out that it was highly deadly in that it eats the body up faster than it normally would by increasing the levels of adrenaline in the user far beyond the norm. The effect of this is the same as it would be for a patient with Adrenal Cortical Hyper-Function.

Personally, I could not care less if Brad Pitt starts to shrivel up and blows away. At a reported cost of $1,000 per dose of Adrenochrome I honestly hope they choke on it. How many doses are there in a dead child’s body after they’ve been beaten, tortured, and murdered brutally? That I cannot say but it’s apparently more than enough to make murdering children a very lucrative business.

It is because of this wholesale murder of God’s children that He is returning to set this world right and those who have taken part in these atrocities are going to be mowed down by His sword no matter what they do or where they hide. Those are the souls that God has been counting against this day and now it’s upon us all.

God is going to pour out the wine of His wrath on California and very soon. This is just the beginning. I pray with all my heart that anyone who might be reading this and is uncertain to accept the truth or not as they see fit but I pray that not one of His sheep shall be lost because I failed in my duty to forewarn you all of these things which I know shall shortly come to pass.

I know for instance that the U.N. will soon be thrown out of the U.S. and have for decades. I know that Donald Trump is going to be the President when Christ returns. I have known that for decades too. That is why if you go back and look you will see that I tried desperately to warn everyone not to allow him to even run because I knew this was going to happen. And unfortunately, I was right.

I understand fully the danger I am putting myself in by speaking out and again I could not possibly care less even if I tried. I serve God. Nothing else has any fear for me, not even the pain of death. Not when being alive is the most painful thing I’ve ever lived through in my entire life. I will die on my feet before I’ll take a knee or bow down to any man. That’s all from the prison mentality anyway. Bow down bitch is what they say to weaker people in the joint and we see it going on in the streets now. Bitches bowing down under threat because they think appeasement is going to make it all better. It’s not. It’s only the first step down the road to hell.

Everything I have spoken on is public knowledge so there are no secrets revealed but I hope that the message reaches someone who doesn’t know what’s going on. Many have been kept from seeing enough of the truth that it’s almost impossible to believe but here we are in the thick of it and you cannot look away any longer or stand on the sidelines and say I won’t fight evil I’m a pacifist. Your friends and family are not and they are your responsibility too.

I am calling upon every able-bodied man woman and youth in America to stand up now in response to this unprecedented attack upon America and our freedoms and fight back. I don’t mean go out and attack the first Antifa-looking person you see. They might just be an ordinary weirdo and innocent, and that is not a road we want to go down.

If you see someone being bullied you should always step in and make the fight even no matter who it is. I learned that when I was in Kindergarten. If you see people breaking into someone’s home like they did that couple the other day and you don’t grab a gun and take a stand with them then you are probably going to be next on their list to visit because you were too scared to take a stand when they came for your neighbors.

If you see someone elderly being beaten by a mob and you don’t intervene then you may be next. If they come 200 deep, call everybody, you know and have them call everyone they know that has some balls and go at them 2000 deep. Overwhelm them with sheer numbers and if that doesn’t work find something that does.

In every instance, the utmost care should be taken to respect the rules of engagement and every effort must be made to reach a peaceful resolution to this conflict wherever it might rear its ugly head but nobody has an obligation to retreat from a threat or from the use of violence against their person. Nor do you have to stand there and watch it happen. You have a duty to intervene for the preservation of life, limb, and property even if it involves someone you don’t even know. That is the duty of every American who would invoke the blessings of liberty. Anyone who would do harm to innocent persons in the name of anything is in violation of those same rights and have no reasonable expectation to the blessings of anything but Miranda, and due process of law.

It doesn’t work that way. In legalese that is known as having your cake and eating it too and Nancy Pelosi only has ice cream. I am calling out the militia units in these United States, the Minutemen, the Oath Keepers, the Sheepdogs, the bikers for Trump, veterans, and any other patriot who loves this nation and who value their freedom more than they care about any group attempt to strong-arm the rest of the country into capitulating to their demands that we all bow down and kiss their asses or there will never be peace.

Mother fuckers, we know that peace was never an option so tell that shit walking. Better yet, run because if President Trump who has called upon us repeatedly to quell this uprising, doesn’t come for you soon, we will. When we do we are bringing Hell with us and justice will be swift and final. There will be nowhere to hide, no cops to call. Nobody is going to come and rescue you. Not you on the street breaking windows and burning our churches, and for damn sure, not you who are now hiding in the halls of Congress and fomenting this armed insurrection. Playtime is over. Nuff said.

Sic Semper Tyrannis. Semper Fidelis.
