Simple Truths for Complicated Times – Part I

In the cacophony of battle, the man who remains calm and maintains his focus stands the best chance to, not only survive but to emerge victorious.  The best way to find calm in the midst of chaos is to have a clear, concise understanding of the primary battlefield objective and your role in the battle plan.

Our country, and the world at large, is currently experiencing tremendous chaos.  The reasons we find ourselves coming together, sharing our understanding of the issues that face our society, and working to find solutions that will save our civilization are not complicated.  Those that benefit the most from this chaos, and the institutions guilty of creating it, want to complicate the issues as much as possible.  The more the Administrative State can confuse the citizenry with regulations, rules and processes, the less likely we will stay in the fight. 

It is vitally important that we stay above the cacophony, understand what brought us here, and remain focused on finding, implementing, and maintaining solutions that benefit We The People.

It is unfortunate that we live in a time where using words like ‘fight’ and ‘battle’ when speaking politically can land one in solitary confinement for over a year without a trial.  To be clear, the battlefield upon which we find ourselves is the battlefield of ideas.  In this fight, we engage our fellow countrymen and those who wish to surrender our sovereignty to foreign or global entities with our wit and our words. 

As the darkness of the COVID plandemic begins to lift, it is important to understand how we got here to not only ensure that policy mistakes/missteps are never repeated, but also to hold those in power to account for the decisions they made and the liberties they so flippantly stole from their citizenry. 

However, we cannot evaluate the COVID insanity in a vacuum.  The roots of the chaos we are enduring are deep and wide.  For this exercise, we will begin with the first impeachment of President Donald J. Trump and move forward.

A Tale of Two Ukrainian Phone Calls

In the summer of 2019, President Trump asked the president of Ukraine to look into the shady dealings of the Biden crime family.  As we know, Hunter Biden had been placed on the Board of Directors for Burisma, a Ukrainian energy firm.  We also know, that Burisma was under investigation for corruption.  Corruption that has since been confirmed both by Tony Bobulinski (former Hunter Biden business partner) and by emails obtained from the laptop Hunter left at a computer repair shop.  In addition, we have a video confession of Joe Biden threatening to withhold one billion dollars in U.S. loans to Ukraine unless the prosecutor investigating Burisma was removed.  In the words of Joe Biden, “Well son-of-a-bitch, he got fired.”

When word of President Trump’s phone call was leaked, talk of impeachment began.  Very soon after the story broke, President Trump released the call transcript to the public.  There was no threat of war, the Ukrainians received the military support congress had approved and no investigation of the Biden’s by the Ukrainians, ensued.  Yet, the President of the United States was impeached by the House of Representatives and eventually acquitted by the Senate.

Turn the page to 2022 and Joe Biden has a call with the same president of Ukraine as war drama unfolds between NATO, Russia and Ukraine.  We have recently sent troops to neighboring NATO allied countries and the Biden regime has asked for another six billion dollars in military aid to Ukraine. 

CNN reported that Biden’s call with the Ukrainian President “did not go well”, with other reports indicating that President Zelensky basically had to ask for Biden to calm down. 

The Simple Truth – One President can be impeached for asking about corruption for which there is ample evidence, and another President can fan the flames of World War and our lawmakers and legacy media yawn.

COVID “Pandemic”

As the childish and divisive impeachment drew to an end on February 5, 2020, we turned our collective attention to a new virus emerging from Wuhan, China.  It really is a brilliant strategy.  Keep the public occupied and outraged over an impeachment process while a virus spreads from China all over the world.  The United States recorded our first laboratory-confirmed case of Covid-19 on January 18, 2020.  Impeachment still had two and a half weeks to hold the country’s attention while the virus could spread and politicians could avoid addressing it.  The first death from Covid was originally reported to have occurred on February 6, 2020.

With the noise of impeachment fading, battles for presidential primary position heating up, and the unprecedented cancellation of college and professional basketball seasons looming; the country was emotionally primed for attack.

The medical community, through Imperial College of London model estimates, announced that without drastic measures, 2.2 million Americans would die from this disease.  Using these alarming estimates, government officials recommended lockdowns, social distancing and increased hygiene measures.  On March 16, 2020, Fifteen Days to Slow the Spread was introduced.  Americans, fearing for their fellow man and relying on the scientific community for their expertise, went along with this plan.  We learned who was essential and who was not.  Self Employed Americans were made to close their shops and apply for emergency unemployment.

These measures were unprecedented and unsupported by any science.  There had been no studies on social distancing and its efficacy in slowing the spread.  There had been no balance between a person’s right to be free of the risk of a flu virus and a person’s right to earn a living.  Children, who everyone knew early on, were neither in danger from the virus or vectors of viral transmission.  They were sent home and forced into virtual learning in spite of the science.  It is the first time in modern history that in order to protect our elderly, we overtly harmed our young.

Then again, we overtly hurt our elderly as well.  Governors of some states ordered that Covid-19 patients be sent to nursing homes.  As a child, I was taught to cover my mouth when I sneezed or coughed and I was taught not to go around older people when I was sick.  That’s how we have attacked the flu season my whole life.  All of a sudden, we are putting sick people in with the elderly?  On purpose?  As the weeks progressed, it became obvious to everyone that the elderly were the most vulnerable to this new virus.  So, how did we protect our elderly?  We locked them in isolation.  We allowed them to die alone.  Utterly alone.  How did our society become so cruel?

It is said that a good way to judge a society is by how they treat their young and their old.  By that measure, our society is an embarrassment. 

The lockdown of March crept into April.  Some states relaxed their Covid policies while others ramped them up.  BY mid-April, in spite of one hundred years of mask science, everyone was wearing a paper mask, a gator, or a bandana.  By the time May rolled around, many voices began decrying our loss of liberties and espousing crazy ideas of government control and a lack of science-based evidence for the origins of the virus, suppression of early treatments, and oppressive Covid policies.  Throughout the country, we saw anti-lockdown protests maligned and ridiculed.

As we headed to summer, the country was already on a slow boil.

The Simple Truth – The United States Constitution was written and ratified during a war.  While hunkered down fighting for their freedom and well aware of the existence of communicable diseases like bubonic plague, the Founding Fathers failed to include any language that allowed an unelected medical community to override the protections of individual Liberty enshrined in our founding documents.
