Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
— Psalm 33:12

Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power.
Alexis de Tocqueville, 1830s

Freedom of religion. Freedom of worship. Freedom of conscience. Freedom of assembly. Freedom of association. Freedom of speech and other forms of publication. These are all profoundly Biblical concepts, which led to the Protestant Reformation, which in turn influenced the worldview of America’s Founding Fathers (if not their church going in every case). One wonders if George Washington, if he were alive today, would even recognize the country he helped to found.

Years of Marxist indoctrination in the “educational” system, from K to university, induct millions of Millennials and Gen-Zers into the Left Cult.

Unconstitutional and unscientific pandemic lockdowns, based on Red China’s totalitarian model, maximize societal frustration.

Coronavirus stimulus checks and Soros rent-a-mob payments create disincentive to get a real job.

Presto! Instant leftist mob for takedown of USA . . .

BTW, your resident blogger graduated from a US high school in 1986. New songs on the radio were what we now call “classic rock.” There was only one Star Wars trilogy. Movies like the original Red Dawn inspired us to beat the you-know-what out of the Soviets and their commie proxies. Even though the threat of nuclear annihilation was constant, it was still a great time to be young.

We have no recollection of PC indoctrination during this stage of our education. We took real courses and learned real stuff . . . like how to write, do math and use an electric typewriter! We also learned about history, which included inspirational studies of dead white men. Imagine that.

We would like to think that the majority of Black Americans are patriots. However, if a certain faction has been radicalized by the Left, the same can be observed about White Americans, Hispanic Americans, etc. In any case, can we help but wonder if Soros provides the cash while Chairman Xi provides the arms?

Maxwell, however, knows too much about too many rich and powerful men. We suspect she will probably disappear into the Federal Witness Protection Program.
