There is a reason that certain words or phrases or notions are absent from certain texts of long past.
For example, the various documents often labeled with the misnomer as “Founding” documents: The Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the U.S. Constitution, and Magna Carta (which aided in defining Americans’ rights as Englishmen). From there we do not find a right to vote nor a defense of democracy.
With food shortages coming, it’s a smart move to order organic, cooked, freeze-dried chicken for long-term storage from Prepper Organics.
Neither of these “missing links” could do anything but destroy a republic. And they have. The republic is gone. The demon of democracy is (and has been for a while) upon us.
A right to vote?
We hold these truths to be self-evident …that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights…
God gave us a right to vote? Really?
Did God tell us that He was delivering certain Commandments to us and that we should sit down, discuss them, kick them around, then vote on them? I have a different understanding i.e. He said thou shall, or thou shall not. There wasn’t any voting on it.
What He did do as the authors of the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, etc. seemed to view was to allow us to govern ourselves. Such a concept allows responsible votes.
“The Americans are the first people whom Heaven has favored with an opportunity of deliberating upon and choosing the forms of government under which they should live.” – John Jay
And some great minds, notably Englishmen, who had studied the advancement of civilization through mostly western culture and academia, came to realize that a republican government was the best service of governance. At least it was under God’s guidance through both rights and responsibilities.
Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle may have been white (and male), but they were hardly stupid. Fast forward two or three millennia to “The Squad” and the thought must arise: If Darwin was correct, and things evolve, what happened to intelligence. Do some things evolve downward? Oh well, just a pithy “aside.”
As another aside, the above notions of western civilization and Englishmen have no special connotation among the four races of this planet (Caucasoid, Negroid, Mongoloid, and Australoid—see H.G. Wells’ Outline of History for more than casual historical events, etc ). No more than to say that Mongoloids are brilliant for inventing gunpowder, nor Negroid for their proto-Saharan system of writing presentation.
This interlude aside is for the babbling chatterers and scribblers who get apoplectic at the concept of racial division. That is, if there are more “races” than simply the eponymous “human” race, then that equality and equity stuff gets all jumbled in their little minds. All lives matter, kind of, sort of.
Western civilization’s direction in history took a direction most likely following the spread of Christianity—particularly following the Reformation. Hence the colonies to the Americas leaned heavily on English reflection of the modern republican state (or states).

But, in the alleged warning of Benjamin Franklin when supposedly asked what kind of government the Constitutional Framers had endowed the people with, he said, “A republic, if you can keep it.”
They (we) did not keep it. Now, with an empire rapidly degenerating into a democratic mob we have the rule of the thugs. This is seen not only in Washington with its barbed wire and armed guards keeping the people away from the seat of government. But now, this “democracy” with its concomitant so-called voting rights is creeping out among the locals. Mayors defunding the police when convenient. But at the same time, funding the police to arrest people trying to speak at their own tax-payer supported school boards. Critical race theory discord continues at Oldham County school board
These are not isolated incidents. They have become routine. And they probably will continue.
How do you stop a democratic monster of such corruption? One that impeaches presidents with no legal charges–both in and out of office. One that steals from the treasury openly and spends it on votes that have been charged as “rights”? And one that fraudulently puts a man in office who is on the threshold of dementia, if not already there; whose son would be on trial, if not in jail, with the mountain of scandal and evidence before him publicly?
You probably don’t stop the monster. He has fed on the poisonous words of democracy and voting rights. And the digestion has vomited into a national empire. Poison rots from within.
No, Dr. Franklin, they did not keep it. They lost it a long time ago. A lot longer than four score and seven years ago to be dang sure!
And the seeds of that loss are beginning to bloom.
God bless America—even you dumb Yankees.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
