Biden turns Trump into Modern Day George Washington

In 1783, at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War that established individual liberty for American citizens, Americans were debating whether or not to become a citizen-run republic (something completely new) or a monarchy (the most widespread form of governance and which all Americans were most familiar).

George Washington could have easily been declared the new king by popular acclamation, and he also could have easily declared himself the new king:

“At multiple times during his career, George Washington had the opportunity to permanently seize the reins of power and install himself as an American dictator. Never was this danger greater than in 1783. That year, as the Revolutionary War came to an end, many openly wondered whether or not Washington would use his position as commander of the army to usurp Congressional authority and personally consolidate power – a temptation to which countless other military leaders have succumbed throughout the course of human history. The great moment of truth had arrived and the nation’s future hung in the balance; the fate of millions, born and unborn, would hinge upon one man’s internal struggle between ambition and integrity.

Rather than become an American Julius Caesar, however, the father of our country was determined that the new nation should be a true republic. He resolved to lay down his command and return to private life. When told of Washington’s intended course, Great Britain’s King George III incredulously said, “If he does that, he will be the greatest man in the world.”

True to his word, on December 23, 1783 (239 years ago), George Washington voluntarily resigned his commission before Congress. To mark the event, a ceremony was held inside the Maryland Statehouse in Annapolis during which Washington spoke these words:

I consider it an indispensable duty to close this last solemn act of my Official life, by commending the Interests of our dearest Country to the protection of Almighty God, and those who have the superintendence of them, to his holy keeping. Having now finished the work assigned to me, I retire from the great theatre of Action; and bidding an Affectionate farewell to this August body under whose orders I have so long acted, I here offer my Commission, and take my leave of all the employments of public life.”

To be sure, Washington was not done with his career as a public servant.  Eventually he would be called upon to lead the Constitutional Convention and was later elected the first President of the United States.  Invariably, however, Washington remained steadfast in his commitment to the democratic experiment and, as a result, our inheritance of liberty continues to this day. How very much we owe to the character of this one, remarkable, man. God bless George Washington.” (from Historic America)

Fast forward 239 years and America is now undergoing a revolution-in-reverse by the aggressive lawlessness of one political party and the nonchalant passivity of the other political party. Americans are watching in disbelief as their citizen-owned government is being devoured by unelected bureaucrats and tyrannical elected politicians, with help from the establishment media, Big Tech, Big Corporations, and many other un-elected political forces.

Our personal liberty hangs in the balance. Nothing highlights the precarious situation we are all in at this moment like the illegal FBI raid on President Donald Trump’s home in Florida.

The Biden Administration’s lawless attack on President Trump is not because he has done anything wrong. He hasn’t done anything wrong, and everyone knows it. If anything, the raid was an attempt to steal documents Trump had that incriminate the FBI and DOJ in law-breaking. The raid is the biggest act of conflict of interest in American history. Biden personally attacked President Trump with official, publicly owned assets, in order to politically damage Trump, so that President Trump would be diminished in the view of the voters who will be choosing between Biden and Trump in 2024.

Except that diminishment is not happening.

The opposite is happening.

In the wake of the DOJ+FBI’s corrupt personal assault on President Trump, Americans are now rallying around the president (Trump, the actual president). Because we all realize that Biden’s false accusation and lawless invasion of Trump’s home is really an assault on every American. If President Trump can be politically targeted and destroyed simply because he poses a political threat to Biden’s craving for absolute power, then all of us are at risk. Our collectively owned system of self governance is at risk.

This situation in many ways mirrors the cruel behavior of the British against the American colonists, and it is turning President Trump into the George Washington of our time. One man alone who stands between The People and tyrannical absolutism, and who alone stands for our freedom, and for an American government that is Of, By, and For The People.

George Washington was hounded by the British at every turn, from 1775 until 1783, when he defeated the British at Yorktown and ended the Revolutionary War. Trump is living up to George Washington’s greatness.

*UPDATE: FBI agents took Congressman Scott Perry’s cell phone while he was on vacation with his family yesterday. On the pretext that he spoke with President Trump. Can you believe this is happening in America? Joe Biden is at war with America, with everyone who disagrees with Biden’s attempt to censor and jail everyone who disagrees with him.

Thanksgiving

While fortunately spending a great deal of time out of doors over the past two weeks, often with old friends, in beautiful natural environments, I found myself feeling thankful over and over. What an incredible nation we live in, this America, to have so much opportunity and food and cars and clothing and so much else that it is easy to take any and all of it for granted.

If there is one thing that this debacle of a presidential administration in Washington DC is showing us Americans, it is how fragile our lives and indulgences really are here. In just ten months, the election-stealing Biden Administration has managed to joyfully throw America’s economy into a whirlpool, with spokesthing Jen Psaki laughing out loud and mocking questions about rising food prices, inflation.

“Sorry the treadmill is slowing down,” Psaki mocks, as the administration does everything in its power to keep ships off our coasts from delivering their cargo to us, to turn America from energy-independent to energy-weak and energy-dependent, with soaring gasoline prices as a result.

And in a bizarre way Psaki has done working Americans a favor. She and her confused boss Biden have shown us how thankful we should be. It is a fact that we should not take any of this incredible lifestyle for granted. Not even toilet paper, right? Look at what evil people can so easily do to us, if we just give them the opportunity!

Here below is George Washington’s original proclamation, establishing Thanksgiving Day. Remember that George Washington was one of our leading Founding Fathers who risked everything he had 245 years ago to bring us the opportunities and freedoms we enjoy today. When I read this, I wonder if enough Americans today feel the same way General Washington felt then; do we deeply appreciate what we have. I hope you all enjoyed this day of Thanksgiving as much as I did.

“Thanksgiving Proclamation

New York, 3 October 1789

By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Go: Washington”

 

How lovely. Our first ever un-President’s Day!

We Americans just had our first un-President’s Day. That is, the non-President’s Day President’s Day. Which is to say, the holiday about presidents Washington and Lincoln that is actually not really about them any more.

This is because some people have decided to destroy everything that makes America America, and to try to turn America into something else that bears no resemblance to the America founded by General George Washington, our first president and the one for whom President’s Day is really all about. The person these people have selected to represent them is corrupt political careerist Joe Biden, who represents absolutely zero of what George Washington stood for.

King George III remarked about George Washington that he was “the greatest man in history” for having refused the crown as America’s first monarch. George Washington was so devoted to democracy in general, and in particular to the republican form of democracy with all of its fractured power sources and inherent checks and balances, that he declined to assume the absolute power of a monarch.

Contrast our heavenly subject George Washington with the lying, thieving, senile, corrupt failure in the White House right now. Joe Biden and his corrupt family are pretty much owned by the China Communist Party, and both Biden and his Democrat Party enablers are on a mad dash to not only steal elections, but to consolidate power Power POWERRR! so that no one can ever again challenge them or stop them from coercing heretofore free Americans into doing things we would not normally choose to do.

And this is why the President’s Day of 2021 is actually the un-President’s Day. Because unlike past President’s Days, this year’s holiday is not about the finest human qualities as demonstrated by George Washington’s self-control and humility. Rather, it is now remarked by the exact opposite behavior: Deep personal financial corruption by the current occupant of the White House, deeply fraudulent elections nationally and in many states that enabled Biden and the Democrat Party to illegally seize power, and a lethargic inward-looking Republican Party that cannot move off its ass to save itself much less the America that it supposedly exists for and to serve.

And so rather than “celebrate” President’s Day yesterday, I toasted General George Washington, for simply being an incredible human being. May God grant America such brave, just, and good leadership again, and soon.

And for all the nitwits who complain that General George Washington owned slaves, where the hell is your outrage against the Democrat Party you vote for and cheer on as it wipes out 244 years of carefully crafted democracy in its bloodthirsty quest for absolute POWER? Today’s Democrat Party is the second largest slave owner in the world, the first being the Chinese Communist Party, in which the Democrat Party is enthralled and in awe.

Sorry. I forgot. If liberals did not have double standards, they would have no standards at all. “Rules for thee but not for me” is the new Democrat Party mantra.

The original Thanksgiving Day address

NOTE: Several recent blog posts were lost or misplaced while this website’s hosting provider “migrated” the site to another location. A few people had expressed appreciation for those posts, and an attempt will be made to get them back.

Re THANKSGIVING, today: Like any normal person who has ever lived on Planet Earth and who has struggled, risked, and sacrificed much to achieve something, America’s first president, George Washington, had true appreciation for the unique freedoms and special attributes of his newly created America. So many people had died and risked everything to create freedoms for following generations – you and me – that Washington believed it necessary to state what was then the obvious. So he issued a proclamation. Here it is, and it is beautifully said. We Americans should all say it every day we live in America, not just today, which is Thanksgiving Day:

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor– and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.
