There is that “aha” moment in the movie National Treasure when Nicholas Cage as Benjamin Franklin Gates tells his dad Patrick Henry Gates, played by Jon Voight, that the clue “The Secret lies with Charlotte” was solved. The younger Gates tells his long suffering dad they found “The Charlotte”. Jon Voight then realizes it’s not a person…but a ship… which brings us to three years ago.
“Know the truth, and the Truth will set you Free!”
The Gates family for generations had been following clues trying to find the truth and treasure regarding our blessed country that was founded as much as an idea as a place.
Similarly, today, the Secret still lies with CharlottesVille: learning the real truth, the whole truth and nothing but the Truth, so help me God. Race focused Biden bleeds the lie. Here are the facts
This singular event that occurred three years ago is pivotal to where we are going as a nation. Our survival depends on people of good character looking for the truth, not sound and sight bites; my grandkids and your families depend on we adults seeking and sharing the truth.
The corruption and bearing false witness is at epic levels and must end; to do so we need a press that believes its role is telling the truth not advocating for lies and their favorites. And we need adults with well formed consciences and critically thinking minds to speak up. Respectfully of course, but speak up. However the DeMedia arm ABCNNBCBS is wholly owned by the party of slavery so do your own research.
It was at the August 15, 2017 press conference that Trump said that “you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.” He was talking about the demonstrators for and against breaking up stone and pulling down history. Not defending radicals.
August 20, 2020, in accepting the nomination for Democrat presidential candidate, Joe Biden said this: “…Just a week ago yesterday was the third anniversary of the events in Charlottesville. Remember seeing those neo-Nazis and Klansmen and white supremacists coming out of the fields with lighted torches? Veins bulging? Spewing the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the ’30s? Remember the violent clash that ensued between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it? Remember what the president said? There were quote, “very fine people on both sides.” It was a wake-up call for us as a country. And for me, a call to action….”
Too bad, Mr Biden knowingly lied; for at least the second time. Just on this event.
Trump’s comment was regarding the demonstration for and against destroying the statue of Robert E Lee in the city square. Not the racists hate mongers. Why does Joe repeat the lie? It was about the modern Iconoclasts and common sense Americans long BEFORE the Negro eliminators showed up.
Trump said there “were fine people on both sides” of the debate whether to tear down this historical statuary. He wasn’t defending New Nazis, people who believe that some members of the human race are not as valuable, should not be alive. But, that does not matter to the “media” or the Biden campaign.
If you want that, look to the master racist embraced by the party of slavery founded in 1854, Margaret Sanger who wanted Negros eliminated; no one can be more racist than that!
Her meme quotes tell the story NOT told by the hyperbiased ABCNNBCBS talking heads. But, the NYTimes, WAPost and others that work as the media arm of one party will never grow up and speak the truth. Nor correct their errors except on page 150 of a 150 page newspaper. Or in 7 point type on their online edition.
Why is this important, my beloved kids, friends and readers? Because Truth Matters. It always does. Look at the facts from 3 years ago briefly
(Politifact hat tip) On April 25, 2019, former Vice President Joe Biden declared his 2020 candidacy for the Democratic nomination and the presidency by recalling the events in Charlottesville and Trump’s comments. “With those words, the president of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it,” Biden said. A lie; he knew it was a lie. His teleprompter loader knew the same.
When will bearing political false witness be a capital offense?
The next day, Trump responded, saying “If you look at what I said, you will see that that question was answered perfectly. And I was talking about people that went because they felt very strongly about the monument to Robert E. Lee, a great general. Whether you like it or not, he was one of the great generals.” Trump also said he would defeat Biden “very easily.”
Three years later, the campaign ensues.
Flashback• • •august 15, 2017
Reporter: “Let me ask you, Mr. President, why did you wait so long to blast neo-Nazis?”
Trump: “I didn’t wait long. I didn’t wait long.”
Reporter: “Forty-eight hours.”
Trump: “I wanted to make sure, unlike most politicians, that what I said was correct — not make a quick statement. The statement I made on Saturday, the first statement, was a fine statement. But you don’t make statements that direct unless you know the facts. It takes a little while to get the facts. You still don’t know the facts. And it’s a very, very important process to me, and it’s a very important statement.
“So I don’t want to go quickly and just make a statement for the sake of making a political statement. I want to know the facts. If you go back to —
Reporter: “So you had to (inaudible) white supremacists?”
Trump: “I brought it. I brought it. I brought it.”
Reporter: “Was it terrorism, in your opinion, what happened?”
Trump: “As I said on — remember, Saturday — we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence. It has no place in America. And then it went on from there. Now, here’s the thing –“
Trump: “Excuse me. Excuse me. Take it nice and easy. Here’s the thing: When I make a statement, I like to be correct. I want the facts. This event just happened. In fact, a lot of the event didn’t even happen yet, as we were speaking. This event just happened.
“Before I make a statement, I need the facts. So I don’t want to rush into a statement. So making the statement when I made it was excellent. In fact, the young woman, who I hear was a fantastic young woman, and it was on NBC — her mother wrote me and said through, I guess, Twitter, social media, the nicest things. And I very much appreciated that. I hear she was a fine — really, actually, an incredible young woman. But her mother, on Twitter, thanked me for what I said.
“And honestly, if the press were not fake, and if it was honest, the press would have said what I said was very nice. But unlike you, and unlike — excuse me, unlike you and unlike the media, before I make a statement, I like to know the facts.”
Reporter: “The CEO of Walmart said you missed a critical opportunity to help bring the country together. Did you?”
Trump: “Not at all. I think the country — look, you take a look. I’ve created over a million jobs since I’m President. The country is booming. The stock market is setting records. We have the highest employment numbers we’ve ever had in the history of our country. We’re doing record business. We have the highest levels of enthusiasm. So the head of Walmart, who I know — who’s a very nice guy — was making a political statement. I mean — I’d do it the same way. And you know why? Because I want to make sure, when I make a statement, that the statement is correct. And there was no way — there was no way of making a correct statement that early. I had to see the facts, unlike a lot of reporters. Unlike a lot of reporters —
Reporter: “Nazis were there.” “David Duke was there.”
Trump: “I didn’t know David Duke was there. I wanted to see the facts. And the facts, as they started coming out, were very well stated. In fact, everybody said, ‘His statement was beautiful. If he would have made it sooner, that would have been good.’ I couldn’t have made it sooner because I didn’t know all of the facts. Frankly, people still don’t know all of the facts.
“It was very important — excuse me, excuse me — it was very important to me to get the facts out and correctly. Because if I would have made a fast statement — and the first statement was made without knowing much, other than what we were seeing. The second statement was made after, with knowledge, with great knowledge. There are still things — excuse me — there are still things that people don’t know. I want to make a statement with knowledge. I wanted to know the facts.” End quote.
Sorry about the length, but the Truth is NOT a sight bite.
Trump was avoiding another “rush to judgement” that the political class and media savor over. Their permanent silent coup continues, looking for the John Wilkes Booth bullet, the lethal weapon to kill him off precisely when America needs him in a simple binary choice between a free market federal republic and a total Marxist socialist takeover of our great land.
We don’t need the leftist tenured indoctrinated AntiFAstan domestic terrorists. We need to value FAMILIES, LAW and ORDER yet again. It is up to us!
Rush to Judgement and Lies are dangerous.
Look at the jingle that never happened “Hands Up Don’t Shoot”. This supposedly was said by the sad bully Michael Brown’s buddy as he grabbed a cop’s gun and tried to hurt or kill him.
It didn’t happen…
and the “witness” eventually recanted but now “hands up don’t shoot” is lasered into the fragile urban history.
Brown was strong and huge: he should be playing college football, maybe make the NFL, but no one in his fatherless home told him and taught him you can’t bully your way to happiness. You can’t rob a convenience store and confront a cop walking down the middle of the street. Truth matters.
Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” is the playbook for the party of anarchy, led by Soros sponsored left radicals in so many roles today. All of you are welcome to your opinion whether you love or dislike Biden and/or Trump. But there is only ONE TRUTH.
You were created not as a robot, but a sentient being to form your own conclusions and worldviews. To save you reading Hillary Clinton’s thesis subject and AOC’s fave bible, here are the 13 maxims of this influential Marxist. Joe Biden and the Democrat party are experts in accusing others of who they are and what they are doing:
Alinsky’s list of 13 “Rules for Radicals,” follow:
1. “Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Power is derived from 2 main sources – money and people. “Have-Nots” must build power from flesh and blood.
2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.” It results in confusion, fear and retreat. Feeling secure adds to the backbone of anyone.
3. “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty.
4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules.
5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.
6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.” They’ll keep doing it without urging and come back to do more. They’re doing their thing, and will even suggest better ones.
7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.” Don’t become old news.
8. “Keep the pressure on. Never let up.” Keep trying new things to keep the opposition off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new.
9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.” Imagination and ego can dream up many more consequences than any activist.
10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.” It is this unceasing pressure that results in the reactions from the opposition that are essential for the success of the campaign.
11. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Violence from the other side can win the public to your side because the public sympathizes with the underdog.
12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem.
13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
70 days from today, you will vote. I will have my driver’s license, birth certificate and utility bill in hand at the polling place. Do you? You can go to Target and dine outside now; you can’t go to the polling place for your most sacred duty and privilege?
Just like Jon Voight seeing the light regarding his lifelong search, we need to do the same about knowing the truth about whom we align with. As a Catholic constitutional conservative, I caucus most often with Republican candidates. That’s me. You can “caucus” with whomever you want. But you ARE involved. Passively or actively.
Despite his over 310 actual successes, I have offspring, nieces and nephews who can’t stand Trump. They use the NeverTrumper materials like the Lincoln Project foursome of Trump hating losers. They never review his 310 successes but always look for that morsel Tweet or parrot what the deceiving media spew as truth. Yeah, he’s not a politician and says things people don’t like. But, he is the most pro life president in history who has changed his ways, no longer pro choice baby killing. Read his words: i can’t do all the research for you.
Don’t live in ignorance. Don’t be like the millionaire talking heads who sold their souls to the devil, literally and figuratively, long ago and get the daily Democrat party leadership talking points and like parrots, spew the lies so similarly you can’t miss the “plagiarism” of robotic repeats on ABC, CNN, MSNBC and CBS, what I shorten to “ABCNNBCBS”
Here are just two examples of the New Green Deal in action, Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Marxist socialists.
Read her latest tweet above: she wants the petty tyrant Democrat governors to interfere in private sector businesses, basically go bankrupt thinking it will help her radical world win. America’s private sector destroyed, hoping it will destroy Trump and usher in the radical Marxist leftist era; real facts: she stopped Amazon bringing in 3000 jobs to her inner city district that desperately needs opportunity. Because it would have help her district with billions in new economic activity and pull so many out of poverty. Recall, her degree was from a university and in economics. American lover? By destroying thousands of NY families and singularly stopping job opportunities that would have helped her constituents.
Quote: “…a few business closures and job losses is a small price to pay to be free of (Trump)~AOC. Parse this comment: she thinks she and her radical Alinsky leftist anarchists own you and your family, your business and your wealth. This “few” is really thousands of business are being destroyed and millions left in the jobless state of depression. What an evil woman.
Example #2: Gov Newsom took responsibility for the electricity generation shortfall of 4 gigawatts.
“REcall” Newsom is owned by the green lobb; in fact, incredibly as wildfires go viral and electricity goes scarce for no good reason, 9 gigawatts of cheap, pollution free natural gas generation have been eliminated the last decade. Yes, 9 gigawatts.
These ignorant AOCers want to destroy our families for their foolishness. The brownouts will NOT stop in California. That’s four nuclear generators worth of generation.
But solar and wind electrical generation is NOT 21st century but horse buggy stuff. Soon Goodyear won’t need to do vulcanized rubber: it will be retooling for oxcart wooden wheels. This stuff is insane and preventable.
This is why Gov Newsom, like many fine Democrats, changed his name to “Recall”. He’s playing Powerpoint flipchart Covid savior while the state goes to the toilet…shut down churches and businesses, preventable wildfires. Climate change he blames. What lunacy.
There is NOT widespread impacting androgenic atmospheric weather changes. We are too puny, like a gnat hitting a tanker truck windshield at 65 mph, to have any effect. 553 sextillion wide universe. 6 sextillion ton earth.
Follow the science (covered in another blog): 1 CO2 molecule for EVERY 2500, yes 2500 air molecules is the air concentration we are being conned: I just paid a 67% gas sales tax rate yesterday. So did you if you pumped Calif gas.
I am blessed with great kids. A country I love, A former sainted wife in heaven and a new beautiful wife who is an incredible stepmom to a beautiful family. I love practicing real estate and helping people attain their dreams.
America is NOT the anarchists. Not the America hating bitter billionaires, especially Soros. It is NOT Alinsky’s or Sanger’s baby killing soldiers. It is not the “peaceful protesters” who maim, rape, pillage, riot and burn other people and OPProperty. It is the land where we have rights AND responsibilities, the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of property ownership and happiness. NOT Kamala, who believes black children are better killed for parts. Her mantra should be “I prefer hacked up black girls extracted from vulnerable mother wombs to fracked up black gold extracted from Calif. mother earth”. This isn’t hyperbolic: she believes parts sold separately is a good thing so she gets her $82,000 donation from hells helpers on earth, PP.
Don’t hate anyone, especially those you disagree with. I hate no one…Yes, there are good Democrats, (Indies and Republicans too) but the leadership sadly has sold my first party affiliation to the devil. Not just figuratively. You can’t shoot fireworks over killing 63 million American babies over four decades and NOT be hell’s best arms and hands. For the invisible satan, like Jesus in heaven, has no physical hands on earth. Both our Savior, God’s Son Jesus and the highest of the angels at creation, Lucifer, have no physical appendages on earth.
We are either the hands of Christ or the hands of Lucifer, hell bound and more than a halloween costume. Evil exists and abounds: but kids take note: Grace abounds more. Much more. We need to be the feet and hands of Christ to others. Know the Truth, speak the Truth and it WILL set you free.
Think about that as you consider Kamala Harris, who took $82,000 from satan’s surgeons at planned parenthood in campaign $$. Who, with her 11 goons, invaded a true investigative journalists 600 sq foot castle and stole his intellectual property and violated significantly his civil rights. She defends candid camera work of animal rights activists; but bullies and lies about David and Sandra recording Dr Nucotela and Dr Mary Gatter discuss pricing for baby parts over salad and wine. And the color of Mary’s Lamborghini.
Patrick Henry Gates’ namesake, Patrick said “Give me Liberty or give me death”. He knew how important life, liberty and the pursuit of property & happiness is.
Also, Benjamin Franklin Gates (a la Nicholas Cage) namesake, Ben answered a query as to what kind of governance do we have in the 1780s. His reply, like the Philadelphia Bell, rings so true:
“A republic, IF you can keep it.” Let’s keep it.
The Gates family went on to find a world class treasure; but they knew as do you and I, the real treasure is the idea, the place and the beliefs of this covenant nation: “All are created equal” under God. That is the true Secret of THE Charlotte and of Charlottesville: we have ONE human race. All are created equal to pursue their dreams. Just don’t follow the divide and conquer, racist behind every tree, 1854 slave party leadership. The swamp public sector government welfare breast suckers hate the successful private sector leaders coming even within miles of DC. Their scam has been discovered and the perpetual coup of seditionists cannot win more power.
Equal opportunity not equal outcomes.
