A Seditious Conspiracy – Lt. Col. Vindman, CIA “Whistleblower” Source #1, Shaped False Summary of April Trump-Zelensky Phone Call…

Amid increased calls from House Republicans to force the testimony of the CIA “whistleblower”, today the Washington Post, the primary outlet for CIA misinformation and public relations, began shaping the “whistle-blower” as a hero.

Because the overall effort involves multiple parts of the deep state apparatus, to see through the construction it is important to note which media outlet holds equity for agency talking points within the coup.  The Washington Post is primary PR for the CIA and IC writ large. The New York Times is primary PR for the FBI; and CNN is primary PR for the State Dept.  This pattern has been consistent throughout.

Over time it has become clear the first confidential human source for the CIA Ukraine dossier, written by CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella and also known as the “Whistleblower report”, is Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman a Ukraine expert inside the National Security Council on assignment from the Dept of Defense intelligence unit.

Within his deposition the ideology of Lt. Col Vindman is clear. Vindman’s mission focus was/is to shape U.S. policy toward Ukraine (and by extension NATO) regardless of the actual policy view of President Trump.  Within his deposition Vindman admitted to giving countermanding instructions to his Ukraine counterpart two weeks after understanding opposite policy objectives from his commander-in-chief.

During his deposition Lt Col Vindman also admitted -with considerable angst and attempts to deflect from his legal advisors provided by the Dept. of Defense- that he was intentionally usurping the chain of command in an effort to follow his own ideological agenda; and perhaps that of his DoD leadership.

By itself that level of admitted and direct insubordination should be alarming for many reasons; not the least of which is his lineage within the U.S. Military.  Indeed Vindman’s intent and purpose explains why he appeared for his deposition in full military uniform.

When we consider that Lt. Col. Vindman was carrying out what he believed to be his role; and when you overlay his military purpose; and when we accept Vindman was assisting CIA agent Eric Ciaramella in constructing his dossier to remove President Trump; and when we stand back and look at the aggregate interests involved; and when we consider there was ZERO push-back from the ranks of military leadership, specifically the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and when you accept Vindman was simply allowed to return to his post inside the White House – where he remains today; well, the alarming aspect increases in direct proportion to the definition of the word: “coup”.

I would encourage all readers to think long and hard those factual data-points.

CIA Agent Eric Ciaramella never delivered his dossier briefing to the upward chain-of-command within the CIA.  Instead Ciaramella subverted the formal process and transmitted his hearsay complaint, derived from material provided by Vindman, directly to principal officials who could assist in the removal of the President.  Again, often we get caught in the weeds, but think long-and-hard about this impeachment process as it is being discovered.

Yesterday President Trump released the call transcript from an April 21st conversation with Ukraine President Zelensky.  Reporters noted there was a disconnect between the call transcript and a separate summary of the call sent to reporters in April.

[…]  In response to questions from reporters, the White House said in a Friday statement that “the NSC’s Ukraine expert” prepared the April summary.

“The president continues to push for transparency in light of these baseless accusations and has taken the unprecedented steps to release the transcripts of both phone calls with President Zelensky so that every American can see he did nothing wrong. It is standard operating procedure for the National Security Council to provide readouts of the president’s phone calls with foreign leaders,” deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley said. “This one was prepared by the NSC’s Ukraine expert,” he added. (link)

That “NSC Ukraine expert” was Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman.

For emphasis let me repeat a current fact that is being entirely overlooked.  Despite his admitted usurpation of President Trump policy, Vindman was sent back to his post in the NSC with the full support of the United States Department of Defense.

The onus of action to remove Vindman from the NSC does not just lay simply at the feet of the White House and National Security advisor Robert O’Brien; and upon whose action the removal of Vindman could be positioned as political; the necessary, albeit difficult or perhaps challenging, obligation to remove Lt. Col Vindman also resides purposefully with the Dept. of Defense.

The Pentagon could easily withdraw Vindman from his position at the National Security Council; yet, it does not…. and it has not.   WHY?

There is a code within the military whereby you never put your leadership into a position of compromise; ie. “never compromise your leadership”.  In this example, President Trump cannot remove Vindman from the White House NSC advisory group due to political ramifications and appearances… The Joint Chiefs certainly recognize this issue; it is the very type of compromise they are trained to remove.  Yet they do nothing to remove the compromise.  They do nothing to assist.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was the majority (#1) source for the material CIA operative Eric Ciaramella used in a collaborative effort to remove President Trump from office.  Let me make this implication crystal clear:

The United States Military is collaborating with the CIA to remove a U.S. President from office.

Do you see the issue now?

The Pentagon has done nothing, absolutely nothing, to countermand this implication/reality.  The Joint Chiefs of Staff have done nothing, absolutely nothing, to diminish the appearance of, nor deconstruct the agenda toward, the removal of President Trump.

Mr. President, do I have your attention?

On Tuesday, Nov. 19th, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman is scheduled to appear in an intentionally shortened morning congressional session along with his ally Jennifer Williams, an aide to Vice President Mike Pence.

In the afternoon, Kurt D. Volker, the former United States special envoy to Ukraine, and Timothy Morrison, a Europe and Russia expert for the National Security Council will appear.

The timing, construct and purposeful design of Vindman’s appearance next week is being intentionally buried within the totality of the narrative that surrounds the impeachment effort.  Perhaps, just perhaps, someone reading this will start to put the purposefully obfuscated pieces of the coup puzzle together and act quickly….

~ REFERENCE MATERIAL ~

Beyond the debate about the optics of the “coup“, within the testimony of Lt. Col Vindman, the witness readily admits to understanding the officially established policy of the President of The United States (an agreement between President Trump and President Zelenskyy), and stunningly admits that two weeks later he was giving countermanding instructions to his Ukrainian counterpart to ignore President Trump’s policies.

The coup against President Donald Trump went from soft, to hard. Consider…

The testimony from Lt. Col. Vindman is available here. [SCRIBD pdf below]

Borrowing from Roscoe B Davis, here are some highlights:

Representative John Ratcliffe begins deconstructing Lt. Col Vindman, while his arrogant attorneys begin trying to interfere with the questioning.

This next section is very interesting, and very important.

Congressman John Ratcliffe begins questioning Vindman from the perspective of an Article 92 violation {READ IT}, coupled with an Article 88 violation {READ IT}. President Trump, is Lt. Col Vindman’s superior. President Trump sets the foreign policy.

Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct. [Article 88, UCMJ]

Two weeks after President Trump has established an agreement with Ukraine President Zelenskyy, and established the policy direction therein, Lt. Col. Vindman is now giving contrary instructions to the Ukranian government. Vindman’s lawyer recognizes where the questioning is going and goes absolutely bananas:

      😬 No worries they already came for me once- starting in March 2017. I’ll be happy to share some of their methods, cyber tools, & other nefarious practices– as well as having documented as much evidence as I could. None of which should EVER be used on any American Citizens!

      Survival tip: Sleep deprivation is an easy means to tap into your weaknesses- it makes you vulnerable & easily manipulated. Consider they’re the counter ego of Freddy Krueger in agenda– turn off ph/pc & 😴!

      I’m pretty sure I did a good job of pissing whoever off, as we’d played an ongoing game of me half asleep, being guided into changing my security settings– so to leave me exposed. Only to have an oh shizit realization during, & change them right back! 😁 Definite good cop/bad cop kinda vibe was at play.

      I’m fairly sure a few whitehats do exist– one even claimed to “be surrounded by Libtards”, perhaps taking pity on my plight. I also know how to do security things I shouldn’t know how to do– But as I was repeatedly shown, it kinda stuck.

      Granted, I was somewhat cooperative initially, as whoever came at me pretending to be someone I knew (who might’ve realistically had the access/capability). But they later admitted that one of the AgenCIes paid them to play that role. Which also included the use of stolen valor.🤨

      Things got really crowded at points, & there were definitive instances of people making known their presence– outside of cyberland. There also seemed to be a concerted effort to draw me away from my home, while being told to “leave the box behind” [cellphone]. 🤔 Yeah, thanks but no thanks… I’m not too keen on walking right into a TRAP!

      They made a lot of assumptions about me– & unfortunately for them, I don’t fit the typical mold/M.O. It was also said that I outwitted a few somebody’s, & someone found this very funny.

      I’m still not sure if the overall objective was to goad me into painting myself (digitally) as a super-secret Russian Spy/Bot. Or to push me to a breaking point- that I might off myself (some very nasty folks!). Or maybe they just wanted to haul me away to some FEMA camp… 😳or worse. (😂)

      I’ve been on CTH since at least 2012– trust there’s a story to tell. It just takes time to organize it all into what could only seem at points, like a bad Twilight Zone Adventure.

      But there’s a lesson for them in whatever that was– Do NOT UNDERESTIMATE my stubbornness & skepticism/cynicism. And NEVER, EVER threaten MY children– I haven’t forgotten, I’ll NEVER forgive, & someday/somehow– I Will FIND you!😠

    I’m a career military NCO, I’ve been extremely concerned with this guy since his involvement was announced. Aside from his insubordination, his background is shady. A naturalized citizen from Ukraine AND his twin brother both wind up on the NSC? Shady. Also, the whistleblower (leaker) and Vindman admit to discussing the contents of the call with multiple people. My understanding is that the contents of the call were initially classified as Top Secret…who authorized them to discuss the call with anyone, let alone people that were not in their work group with a need to know? If no one, then why are they not under investigation? I had to have an anal exam for my last clearance investigation and I’m sure as hell not leaking POTUS’ calls and I’m not a naturalized citizen from a former Soviet bloc country.

    How The Coup Might Have Been Handled in 1862 Montana

    http://www.freenation.org/a/f72h2.html

    Sometimes on the American frontier settlers had to take the law into their own hands because the federal government had no meaningful presence there yet and the territorial government had not been created. This was not the case in Virginia City and Nevada, Montana. The citizens of these mining towns did not lack government law enforcers. What they lacked was honest and effective law enforcers. They had a duly elected sheriff and legally appointed deputy sheriffs to enforce law and order, but, unfortunately, the sheriff was the leader of the road agents and his deputies were his partners in crime.

    Highway robberies and murders by road agents and other criminals were common in Montana in the 1860s. Honest citizens lived in fear. The jury system used by the government courts was ineffective.

    “No matter what may be the proof, if the criminal is well liked in the community, ‘Not Guilty’ is almost certain to be the verdict of the jury, despite the efforts of the judge and prosecutor. If the offender is a moneyed man, as well as a popular citizen, the trial is only a farce—grave and prolonged, it is true, but capable of only one termination—a verdict of acquittal.” (13)

    “The chances of a just verdict being rendered is almost a nullity. Prejudices, or selfish fear of consequences, and not reason, rules the illiterate, the lawless, and the uncivilized. These latter are in large numbers in such places, and if they do right it is by mistake.” (75)

    Five men in Virginia City and one man in Nevada, Montana simultaneously began organizing a Vigilance Committee. Within two days they united their efforts.

    “Merchants, miners, mechanics and professional men, alike, joined in the movement, until, within an incredibly short space of time, the road agents and their friends were in a state of constant and well-grounded fear, lest any remarks they might make confidentially to an acquaintance might be addressed to one who was a member of the much-dreaded Committee.” (121)

    The Vigilance Committee comprised nearly every good man in the territory. They pledged to render impartial justice to all. They took time from their work, their leisure, and their families to spend days tracking down dangerous criminals through the snow in the frigid climate of Montana.
    “The volunteers formed a motley group; but there were men enough among them of unquestioned courage, whom no difficulty could deter and no danger affright. They carried, generally, a pair of revolvers, a rifle or shotgun, blankets and some rope. Spirits were forbidden to be used.” (125)

    Dimsdale regarded government courts as part of the ideal way to control crime, but like John Locke, he and the other good citizens of Virginia City believed that the people have the right to take control when the government fails.

    “Peace and justice we must have, and it is what the citizens will have in this community; through the courts, if possible; but peace and justice are rights, and courts are only means to an end, admittedly the very best and most dependable means; and if they fail, the people, the republic that created them, can do their work for them.” (268)

    Dimsdale proposed this test for determining when it is necessary to establish a Vigilance Committee:

    “The question of the propriety of establishing a Vigilance Committee depends upon the answers which ought to be given to the following questions: Is it lawful for citizens to slay robbers or murderers, when they catch them; or ought they to wait for policemen where there are none, or put them in penitentiaries not yet erected?” (16)

    Dimsdale agrees with the answer arrived at by the vigilantes:

    “Under these circumstances, it becomes an absolute necessity that good, law-abiding, and order-sustaining men should unite for mutual protection, and for the salvation of the community.” (15)
    Dimsdale defends the practice of hanging the criminals arrested and convicted by the vigilantes:
    “… nothing but severe and summary punishment would be of any avail to prevent crime, in a place where life and gold were so much exposed.” (225)

    The vigilantes did not attempt to capture and punish every known criminal. Their goal was not retributive justice. Instead they wanted to break up the criminal gangs and make the territory safe. Their strategy was to go after the leaders and the most dangerous criminals and to arrest them, try them, and, if found guilty, to hang them (1) to prevent the criminal from continuing his life of crime, and (2) to set an example to deter other criminals.

    At the execution of John Dolan in 1864, the executive officer of the Vigilance Committee “addressed the crowd, stating that the execution of criminals such as Dolan was a matter of public necessity, in a mining country, and that the safety of the community from lawlessness and outrage was the only reason that dictated it.” (224)

    Very sad to read this. I was hoping it was just a rogue faction within our military ranks.

    Granted that’d require ignoring what Nobama did by forcing the retirement/reassignment of over 1000 high officers/ those in commanding positions. I want to say it was over 80-some Generals (but I’ve no idea if that’s a realistic #).

    He was also said to have utilized a litmus test… their willingness to do the unmentionable against American Citizens. Based on the high numbers– a lot chose honorably… & then were punished for it.

    Meanwhile, Nobama also was responsible for changing the rules of engagement, to the point it was to our side’s detriment. Eg., Only allowed to fire on vacant buildings — fire only when fired upon by enemies — embarrassing our navy in forced surrender to Iran — over 80% of US aerial missions made to return without firing on targets — AF made to drop flyers, forewarning the Isis drivers of Oil tankers.

    Not to forget he was also arming select Police Departments with mil grade vehicles & weapons. Further the excuse for was a policy that any Veterans returning from ME active-duty, should be considered as potential enemy combatants.

    We also know our mil was “infiltrated”– as reported by FNN/Baire back in Aug 2017. Courtesy of the program that was allowing foreigners to enlist in exchange for citizenship. Many had gone AWOL after training – & they had no idea where to find them!

    Mattis (shortly before his exit) also admitted in a [audio posted on here] in-flight Presser, the Courts were forcing the training of green-card holders at the Pentagon. Supposedly, he objected to the policy. But then it was also Mattis who strong-armed/guilted PDJT into signing that huge funding bill during live Presser, angering many. Set off warning bells for me re. him, at the time.

    Still, I’d like to believe most of our enlisted take their Oaths seriously, & remain loyal Patriots. There’s something wrong with anyone who witnessed the atrocities done to our mil under Nobama, that wasn’t/isn’t still disgusted by it.

    So, much depends on how much of the damage caused has since been repaired, & whether those enlisted under Nobama’s watch were properly re-vetted. Otherwise, a worst case scenario is certainly in the realm of possibilities. (IMHO).

        And I recall that ICE, plus the largest police union in the nation also endorsed.. you guessed it.. Donald Trump for President.

        At that time, Obama was already flooding local police departments with military-grade equipment, inviting EU’s army into the US to “train” our LEO’s (like Macron and the yellow vesters?) AND Obama even floated the idea of martial law..

        When he realized what he was up against, however, he blinked. Obama was forced to stand down while we, the people, held our first *free* presidential election in many decades. Still, something strange went on long into election night, whereby key precincts with results already in, weren’t *called* until the wee hours.

        And those commie newscasters and pundits who, for the first time ever, had no prearranged scripts to follow, just sat there mute. Or cried in frustration. They just weren’t prepared for a free election to take place.

        Did all those Generals and military brass, all those LEOs and ICE border patrol patriots, suddenly drop off the face of the earth? I wonder. Because this election isn’t over, and the American people have been denied our God-given right to the *peaceful* transition of power, as guaranteed by our Constitution!

    Military Organization 101

    Big Picture: Every military service has echelons of “Command”. Being in “Command” and/or having Command of a military unit comes with awesome legal and moral responsibilities. The Commanding Officer (CO) of a military unit is totally responsible for executing his units mission. Every Commanding Officer also reports to another Commanding Officer at the next echelon. For the Army, think Company, Brigade, Battalion, Regiment, Division, Corps as the echelons of Command.

    DoD: The Dept of Defense is an administrative layer of control above the services (Army, Navy etc). DoD has no operational control of any military unit. Operational control of a military unit is always exercised through JCS and it’s parent services echelons of Command.

    Little Picture: LtCol Vindman is operationally “detached” from his parent service (Army). He is assigned to the NSC, for duty, for a period of time. While attached to the NSC he is under the operational control of the NSC and is within the NSC “chain-of-command”. Keep in mind the NSC is not a military unit and has no Commanding Officer (CO). So Vindman also reports to an Army Officer, for administrative purposes (Army OER, training, transfers etc) in command, at some echelon of the Army. I am not familiar with the NSC so don’t know which unit Vindman is assigned to administratively.

    In order to remove Vindman from his current NSC assignment, also known as “relief for cause”, Vindman must do something that causes his CO to lose faith in his ability to perform his assigned duties. Clearly, he is at least guilty of misconduct. But the Military Justice system grinds just as slow as the civilian one.

    Vindman is going to face the music for his actions. Just not anytime soon.

    Another inside baseball observation…Vindman is a twenty one year O-5. You typically promote to O-6 at twenty years. He probably failed to select for O-6, is retirement eligible, and is being forcibly retired at the end of his NSC tour. He does not really have anything to lose.

    Vigilante Justice, Right or Wrong? What Happens When There Is No Law?

    http://www.freenation.org/a/f72h2.html

    According to Dimsdale’s reporting, the Vigilance Committee was an unmitigated success amounting to a triumph of good over evil.

    “Less than three years ago, this home of well-ordered industry, progress and social order, was a den of cutthroats and murderers. Who has effected the change? The Vigilantes; and there is nothing on their record for which an apology is either necessary or expedient.” (268)
    Being arrested by vigilantes was not equivalent to being found guilty and hanged. If the evidence was inconclusive, they released their prisoners—even when they were almost certain that their prisoners were morally culpable.

    “The Vigilantes rigidly abstained, in all cases, from inflicting the penalty due to crime, without entirely satisfactory evidence of guilt.” (165)

    “The truth is, that the Vigilance Committee simply punished with death men unfit to live in any community, and that death was, usually, almost instantaneous, and only momentarily painful.” (154)
    Public reaction to vigilante justice was favorable. Upon hearing of the hanging of Jem Kelly an old miner said, “Served him right; he ought to have gone up long ago; I don’t believe in whipping and banishing; if a fellow ain’t fit to live here, he ain’t fit to live nowhere, by thunder—that’s so, you bet your life.” (215)

    The law-abiding public had no fear of being unjustly punished by the vigilantes:

    “There is not now—and there never has been—one upright citizen in Montana, who has a particle of fear of being hanged by the Vigilance Committee.” (250)

    Even criminals who were hanged by the vigilantes agreed that what the vigilantes did was just. The last words of Erastus Yager, known simply as “Red,” just before he was hanged were, “Good-by boys; God bless you. You are on a good undertaking.” (135) Aleck Carter after being arrested and hearing the names of others hanged by the vigilantes said, “All right; not an innocent man hung yet.” (179)

    When Bob Zachary was arrested, tried, and sentenced to death, he dictated a letter to his mother, “in which he warned his brothers and sisters to avoid drinking whisky, card playing, and bad company, which, he said, had brought him to the gallows.” When he was about to be hanged he prayed to God “to forgive the Vigilantes for what they were doing, for it was a pretty good way to clear the country roads of road agents.” (185)

    Just before Bill Hunter was hanged “he shook hands with each of the company, and said that he did not blame them for what they were about to do.” (192) Just before he was hanged, James Brady wrote a letter to his daughter which included these words, “I have been arrested, and sentenced to be hanged by the Vigilance Committee. In one short hour I shall have gone to eternity. It is my own fault.” (213) At his hanging in front of five thousand people Brady addressed the crowd and said he hoped his execution would be a warning to others. (214)

    After his trial and conviction for murder, John Keene got up and said, “All I wanted was a fair and just trial; I think I have got it, and death is my doom; but I want time to settle up my business; I am not trying to get away.” (239)

    The vigilantes arrested, tried, and convicted men who were responsible for murdering 102 people. Under the laws and procedures enforced in the governmental courts these criminals probably would have been set free and protected from molestation.

    After they executed Bill Hunter on February 3, 1864, there was no longer any openly organized gang of robbers in the territory. (194) The execution of R. C. Rawley, a road agent who fled the territory when the vigilantes organized but made the mistake of returning to Bannack in September 1864, prevented the criminal community from reorganizing.

    “The effect of the execution was magical. Not another step was taken to organize crime in Bannack, and it has remained in comparative peace and perfect security ever since.” (229)

    The Vigilance Committee quickly rid Virginia City, Bannack, and the surrounding country of criminal gangs. Some of the criminals fled to Helena to resume their activities. The citizens of Helena followed the example of Virginia City and organized their own Vigilance Committee. After the initial war against criminals in the vicinity of Helena:

    “Very little action was necessary on the part of the Vigilance Committee to prevent any combination of the enemies of law and order from exerting a prejudicial influence on the peace and good order of the capital; in fact the organization gradually ceased to exercise its functions, and although in existence, its name more than its active exertions sufficed to preserve tranquility.” (253)

    Conclusion

    If you are the type of person who judges actions by their results, it is hard to deny that the vigilantes of Montana greatly improved conditions for their fellow citizens. This is the way Dimsdale saw it:

    ” ‘All’s well that ends well,’ says the proverb. Peace, order and prosperity are the result of the conduct of the Vigilantes…” (267)

    The corruption is so immense and completely beyond what I expected when voting on November 8, 2016. That the coup was already in the minds of these evil people on election day…that their contingency plans had already been dictated, and indications are that members of our military were and remain a part of it, is not merely within the realm of possibility…it has already passed through that phase into a near surety. The “insurance policy” is working out in full force for a worldwide viewing audience. It really is a fight for our nation, our Constitution, and our way of life.

    One of the disturbing aspects of Wednesday’s testimony is the deification of the ‘inter-agency’ process, and its elevation to policy making.

    The interagency process is not staffed by the highest political appointees, nor is it staffed by the highest non-political government employees. These are mid level functionaries! Vindman isn’t even a full colonel yet.

    The cabinet is where policy is laid out by the duly elected President and coordinated between agencies. The duly elected Congress insists on routine updates to review said policies.

    Nobody has anointed mid level functionaries to create and control policy. And nobody reviews their policy decisions. They are appointed to help the agencies achieve their goals by working together.

    This is a usurpation of power from everybody. From their government bosses, from their political bosses, from Congress, from the President, from our Constitution, and from We The People.

    It is not unusual for this level of military officer to lead coups in third world countries. We are lucky Vindman is IC and doesn’t have a personally loyal force serving under him. But the fact that his superiors are not crushing his bad example is very disturbing.

    The American military has always been better than that.

    As a veteran, Im going to reserve judgement until more evidence is provided. I saw some odd things at the unit level where command relieved someone right out of the service without brig time. I also remember a situation where an E6 and E7 violated the UCMJ, and the judgement by the CO was to remove the E7 from the service without his pension, while the E6 was transferred to another unit and promoted.

    If they arrested Vindman now, it would be a firestorm they don’t want. Since this is following the Weissman Track, we know that Democrats are trying to manufacture something they can call obstruction of justice.

    And then we have the RIGHTEOUS and the WICKED.

    Therefore, we need to INCREASE MOMENTUM against the democrats…NOW, AND AT EVERY TURN! Hear the Clarion Call!

    In warfare, when combatants are generally EVEN IN FORCES, the best way to victory is easier obtained via BETTER OVERALL DEFENSE (eg, Grant wore Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia down, slowly but surely with trench warfare).

    However, when COMBATANT FORCES ARE UNEVEN (eg, Republicans vs “missing-in-action Democrats”), what is needed now is called…NO QUARTER (metaphorically).

    NO QUARTER. Don’t give the enemy an inch. Go after these marxists/socialists/liars until their backs are to the wall. The dems are in disarray, and momentum is now turning to the President.
    I know he won’t give them any quarter, that’s for sure.
    And now is the time for REAL “PATRIOTIC” WARFARE.

    Not a call to take people’s lives, or even to hurt others in any way. NO! Thsi is a call to TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!

    Now is the time for OFFENSE; take it to the enemy in every way.
    This struggle will one day end and we shall rejoice in the Lord!

    How our Founding Fathers dealt with the US’s first conspiracy.

    “Mere days before the Declaration of Independence was signed in July 1776, 20,000 spectators gathered in a field where Manhattan’s modern-day Chinatown lies. All together, soldiers and citizens alike, they amassed the largest crowd to watch a public execution in the colonies at the time. Two days earlier Thomas Hickey, a member of the elite guard responsible for protecting George Washington, was convicted of mutiny and sedition, and on the morning of June 28, 1776, was hanged for his crimes.”
