Stop the Steal

Two remarkable things happened on January 4th, 2021. Several hours apart, they both deeply affected me. During the day, I saw this video from John Voight

Moved very near to tears; this is my America. All across the country, people we don’t know are feeling the exact same way – this is my America; we take it very personally, we own it. There are people – at best, misguided; at worst, evil – there are people who have no such connection with the land and the history of this country, people who would strip this country of all that she is and all the promise she holds for the purpose of making it a sort of ‘utopia’ that will never exist. America, as she is, IS the utopia. If you don’t believe that, ask someone who immigrated here and found all that they were looking for. This is my America

What else needs to be said?

The second thing that deeply affected me on January 4th was later in the evening, President Trump’s rally for Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue. The phrase “eleventh hour” kept running through my head. People love President Trump because he loves America – he, like us, remembers the America we grew up in; the America we want all our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren to grow up in. The flag, baseball, and apple pie. We, the America-loving citizens of the United States, are at five minutes to the midnight of America unless the man of the eleventh hour can prevail. I don’t worship Trump; I only worship Jesus. But for right here, right now, President Trump is the only man who can save the United States of America. I pray deeply and earnestly that it is in God’s will for this man to save my country.

From Neo:

Audre is spot on, for my America, her America, Mr. Voight’s America, Mr. Alverez’s America, and so many more millions of us, the Republic itself is in danger. The picture above is the rally yesterday in Washington, DC. Never in my lifetime, or any American living today have we seen a situation where we simply believe that a Presidential election, has been stolen by the Democrat Party, aided and abetted, by a large part of the Republican Party, by the almost entirely partisan (fake) news media, by the courts, state and federal including the Supreme Court, and by the almost entirety of government employees.

At this point, to us, it feels like the people versus the entire establishment, and in fact, as I write this on Tuesday evening, the Republican Senate candidates in Georgia are trailing (it’s not even close to over, so please God, that may change) but they are hardly really strong candidate for the people either. Like my idiot Senator Ben Sasse, they are what we have come to call RINO’s, but as I decided when I voted for Sasse in the general (but not the primary) a RINO is better than a jackass. But that may be ending, if the Biden illegitimate regime takes power, all bets are off. As Rabbi Dov Fischer wrote in The Spectator Monday, Not This Time

No matter how the next weeks play out, a new Republican conservative has arisen who will not roll over and play dead for the delight of Democrats and their Left media. Trump did not really create this new populism; rather, he gave voice to it. And now, for the first time in nearly a century, this stronger conservative voice and strength will dominate the Opposition. It may be too loyal and patriotic to be a “Resistance,” but it will be an “Opposition” such that the Democrat-Media-Left has not before seen nor experienced. Roll over and play dead? Not this time, dear Leftists.

We the American people created this Republic covenanted to God alone and dedicated to the freedom of each and every one of us. It will stand as it always has, or we will refer to Thomas Jefferson’s famous words.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

We did it before against far longer odds, and if needs be, we will do it again. It is our Right, nay it is our DUTY to do so.

    Very moving Audre and Neo. Suffice to say there is sweet FA in the British press about all those Trump supporters. Here’s one Brit on your side anyway. All things crossed that can be crossed and praying that things come right for you.

    Excellent and stirring, Audre and Neo.

    I very much hope that the poor situation we find ourselves in both the States and here resolve themselves but I very much believe, as Alys may attest to, that it’ll clear up in America but not here. We have an awful long time to wait until the next election and there is little protest open to us.

    However, I’m still watching what is going on in America with anticipation that it could turn around. Good luck y’all. 🙂

    The devil may have his hour, but God will have his day. – Bishop Fulton Sheen

    Today we are experiencing the beginning of Satans hour. And as Archbishop Vigano has recently pointed out in an interview with Steve Bannon, we can no longer try to find a “middle road” between one side and the other. We are either all in with the Children of Light or all in for the Children of Darkness and the Children of Darkness don’t even try to hide their evil anymore: it is certainly the devil’s hour but a time of reckoning will come.

      A time of reckoning will, indeed come.

      Beautiful comment, Scoop – thank you for it.

        Now that we know who “they” are. It is time for each of us to find out who “we” are. Satan has boldly proclaimed his victory but it is a sham. The true victory will belong to those who have the fortitude to do that which we are also reluctant to do; shed our blood as Christ did in His circumcision . . . in obedience to the Law. That was His first shedding of blood and we know the power of His final agony and shedding of blood for all of us. Pick a side and get off of the sideline. You can’t straddle that line anymore.

      I have the above link up now – I’m trying to balance responding to comments here and viewing the link so I apologize for the delay. I read Archbishop Vigano’s letters to President Trump last year and they were brilliant.

      If you don’t mind, I’m going to answer some more comments and then finish the link and come back to you, ok?

      I read somewhere that he complained to some woman in the terminal that she wasn’t wearing a mask, when she turned around and attacked his policies he just sat there, head down and took it. Poltroon, at best.
