Independence Day 2018: The Battle for America

Independence Day 2018: The Battle for America
Every year July 4th is the date of the holiday Americans designate to celebrate Independence Day. Yet in 2018, the United States does not seem so united. This 4th of July many concerned citizens are seriously pondering the future of America in light of the highly charged political climate that resembles an organized insurrection against the fundamental values enshrined in the founding documents. At the heart of the political turbulence is more than just an ostensive rejection of a duly elected president—there is presently a blatant rejection of the rule of law, as well as the essential ideals enshrined in the Declaration of Independence.

Such ideals had been around for some time, but they were woven into the very fabric of the Declaration of Independence. And, it is clear that the document was not a simply a philosophical treatise. Jefferson’s words formed a premise for all people to declare their alliance with the belief that all men were created equal and that all were endowed by the Creator with the unalienable rights of Life, Liberty, and freedom in the Pursuit of Happiness. These ideals are currently being challenged by at least one domestic enemy of the words of the Declaration, and at least two foreign enemies of the United States.

Reflecting Upon D-Day and the Present Danger to Freedom

Reflecting Upon D-Day and the Present Danger to Freedom
Remembering D-Day with the genuine sense of danger, destruction, and death that had stained that dark period of world history will soon be lost to the generations of youth who will inherit the future. D-day belongs to cobwebs of history, and the old, old soldiers who returned from the horrors of that war have faded into the shadows. There are few left today who were there, but the memories have been passed on, and the world dare not forget those who lost their lives on the beaches of Normandy on that day. Those brave men gave their lives that freedom could survive, and that others would be freed from tyranny.

The brave boys and men who hit the beaches of Normandy made great sacrifices, not only on June 6, 1944, but also throughout the war—even long after the war. Their true and supreme sacrifice during the most devastating war in human history changed the world. Americans recently celebrated Memorial Day, one way or another, but it would have been fitting to remember the sacrifice of all of those who never made it back home again to live in a free country.

Hypocrisy of “First Amendment” Ruling Against President Trump

May 27, 2018 — Dennis Jamison

Hypocrisy of First Amendment Ruling Against President Trump
“Congress shall make no law…  abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press…”

In the age of political correctness, Federal Judge Naomi Buchwald, has ruled that Twitter is a public forum when used by President Donald Trump, thus he is not allowed to block his Twitter followers because it is a violation of their First Amendment rights.

It is an extremely narrow interpretation of the First Amendment, which provides that the government protect freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Yet, there seems to be quite a stretch in interpreting the Free Speech provision of the Bill of Rights.

Lessons Gleaned from Gavin Newsom’s Protection of MS-13

Gavin Newsom's Protection of MS-13
Last week, a purposeful distortion of President Donald Trump’s words by the Lieutenant Governor of California went beyond mere grandstanding to gain political clout during the state’s primary campaign season. The tweet last week by Democrat Gavin Newsom that falsely accused President Trump of referring to Mexican immigrants as “animals” reveals that the candidate for Governor is either stupid or duplicitous or both. The tweet was an obvious contortion of President Trump’s remarks when the president referred to the violent Salvadoran criminal gang commonly called MS-13 as “animals.”

Gavin Newsom's Gaffe, Media Moguls and Misinformation
There is an extreme hypocrisy within the Left-leaning mainstream media and social media with regard to disseminating information and news to the American public. On the one hand, they decry “hate” speech, while on the other hand, they contort or twist words to generate hate. The shameful, purposeful distortion of President Donald Trump’s words by the Lieutenant Governor of California, and the deliberate repetition of such distortion by the MSM demonstrates willful slander, and a flagrant abuse of freedom of the press.

There are, however, three issues contained within a complete cycle of the abuse of the truth. The first issue is a Democrat politician running for public office in California who obviously was grandstanding to gain some political swagger in the “Golden State.” The second issue is the MSM picking up the contortions made by Newsome and posting a blatantly biased characterization of comments President Trump made during a roundtable discussion with law enforcement and other elected officials from California.

Mother’s Day: A Holiday of Heart, Not Political Hype

May 13, 2018 — Dennis Jamison

Mother's Day: A Holiday of Heart, Not Political Hype
It is hard for many to believe that Mother’s Day could be used politically for messaging to the masses, but it has been used that way since it was originally created. At the time of the official creation of Mother’s Day, the original intent behind it was simply a day to honor mothers by sharing love and appreciation for one’s Mom. Anna Jarvis, the acknowledged founder of the holiday, may have expressed it best when she once explained her purpose in establishing such a day:

“To revive the dormant filial love and gratitude we owe to those who gave us birth. To be a home-tie for the absent, To obliterate family estrangement…  To make us better children by getting us closer to the hearts of our good mothers…  To brighten the lives of good mothers. To have them know we appreciate them, though we do not show it as often as we ought… Mother’s Day is to remind us of our duty before it is too late. This day is intended that we may make new resolutions for a more active thought to our dear mothers. By words, gifts, acts of affection, and in every way possible, give her pleasure, and make her heart glad every day, and constantly keep in memory Mother’s Day.”

​Perspectives on the Trump-Kim Summit ​

​Perspectives on the Trump-Kim Summit ​
Less than seven months into his presidency Donald Trump was seriously challenged by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Trump’s response was strong, Many thought too strong. But now there will be a summit with Kim, despite the anticipated criticism and cynicism of the “Democrat” leadership and Left Wing propaganda organs.

With the groundwork being laid by the Trump Administration in seriously pursuing a pathway to peace, it appears that the framework for a no-nonsense summit is finally set, as President Trump tweeted Thursday that “The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong-un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th.” Trump tweeted. “We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” And, that is essentially what is at stake in this summit: World Peace, not just peace between the South and the North, but a peace that could signal a new paradigm shift upon the planet.

Observations on “Democrat” Self Destruction

Observations on Democrat Self Destruction
American citizens got more entertainment than a “reality” television show during the 2016 election campaign, but real life drama has not stopped since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States. Yet, primary impetus behind the never​-​ending political drama of the Never Trump overachievers are “Democratic” Party bosses and leaders who refuse to accept defeat. That can be a good quality in some cases, but when reaction to defeat turns into a frenetic form of public self-destruction it is time to take notice.

Refusing to accept loss on some levels is admirable, but when loss of a legitimate election turns to rejection of the results, and then into a ridiculous foray into a public charade fueling investigations of fabricated allegations, it begins to look like much more than a case of “sore-loserism.” Now, for those paying attention, it is becoming increasingly apparent that at the heart of the Russian hacking or “influence” in the 2016 elections, is the fabrications paid for by the “Democratic” National Committee.

Revisiting Paul Revere’s Ride - The Alarm

Revisiting Paul Revere’s Ride - The Alarm
At this time of year in Boston, a good number of people have focused on the Boston Marathon, which was a bit chilly for participants and spectators alike recently. Yet, in April of 1775, another sort of race captured the attention of folks in Massachusetts. It was a race to alarm the people that their government had taken up arms against them. Unfortunately, the history of “Paul Revere’s Ride” has been skewered a bit—in part by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who took liberties in bypassing some important details of the calls of alarm throughout Massachusetts on April 18, 1775.

Abraham Lincoln and Reflections on Treason in the White House

Abraham Lincoln and Reflections on Treason in the White House
As it is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday (Feb. 12, 1809) today, and in light of the current state of affairs in the United States, it is appropriate that reflection upon elements of treason in the White House be brought forth from the grave. If Lincoln were alive today to comment on the political turbulence within the hallowed halls of federal government buildings in Washington, he could compare the treason of his day with that facing President Donald Trump in this day.

Most American history books regarding the era of America’s Civil War do not delve too deeply into the treasonous activity in the White House prior to Abraham Lincoln’s setting foot in Washington, D.C. as president-elect in 1861. Yet, almost immediately after taking office, Lincoln inherited the greatest challenge of any previous American president.

10 Important Lessons to be Learned from Antifa Violence in California

Aug 30, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

The blatant violence in Berkeley and San Francisco over the past weekend reveals a number of important lessons for Americans, if anyone who cares about America is paying attention.

  1. Antifa brought it, and demonstrated that they are a quite intense and powerful street force (adept at serving the purpose of Hitler’s Brown Shirts) to intimidate any of the other “hate groups” that showed up to exercise their right of freedom   of assembly and freedom of speech.

Trump’s Strong Words to North Korea Reflect the Stance of Strong Presidents

Aug 18, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

The Left Wing propaganda organs and Democrat “leadership” will not accept much of anything that President Donald Trump has to say these days - even if it is offering his condolences over the horrors in Virginia this past weekend. It actually goes beyond mere hype that erupts from one political party after losing a hard fought election. It is much more and it becomes very old after so much has been lobbed against the duly-elected president. The more obvious of ridiculous attacks came after Trump’s strong words to North Korea’s Communist dictator, Kim Jong-un.

Former Secretary of Defense in the Obama Administration, Leon Panetta, has been weighing in on Trump’s stance, and although he had some intelligent remarks on the North Korean situation, Panetta took the low road: “The question is: “Does [Trump] get so frustrated with the North Korean leader — who’s yelling every other day — that he feels that somehow the North Korean leader is attacking his manhood?”

Summer of 1862: A New Birth of Freedom Conceived by Lincoln

Jul 31, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

Over one hundred and fifty years ago, in the heated summer of 1862, in the midst of the horrible American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln conceived a rebirth of freedom that would alter the course of that war, which would ultimately alter the course of the United States, as well as the history of the world. In essence, within the intense crucible of the Civil War, Lincoln manifested a decision to end slavery through the power he held as president. He came to the conclusion that he could expedite the end of the war by expediting the end of slavery. In July of 1862, Lincoln came to essentially formulate a Declaration of Independence for those in America yet yearning to be free.

The Storming of the Bastille did not Yield Freedom

Jul 14, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

The shocking takeover of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, is considered one of the most dramatic events in history, and is now viewed as a symbol of the spark which set off the French Revolution. Each year the anniversary is celebrated as a public holiday in France: ”Le quatorze juillet” (14 July), formally known as the “Fête de la Fédération”  (Federation Holiday). In English speaking countries it is usually referred to as Bastille Day.

The historic events surrounding the storming of the Bastille are looked upon with as much respect and reverence by the French and Europeans as Americans view the colonists taking on the British troops in the “shot heard ‘round the world.” The Bastille made a great target, but an even greater symbol of the people taking authority into their own hands. The Bastille was originally a medieval fortress-prison that had often been utilized by French kings to imprison their politically disagreeable or disloyal subjects.

Ideals of the Declaration of Independence Still Challenge the World

Jul 4, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

The Declaration of Independence was for the World!

Although a majority of Americans celebrate Independence Day, there are many who give little thought to Independence and how it fundamentally relates to them on a daily basis. To many, the freedoms enjoyed are taken for granted, and some people live from day to day with little focus upon the future with exceptions including upcoming vacations, or the saving of money for a significant impending expense (that could be a wonderful family vacation). Yet, few today would ponder the future and consider risking their lives for a better world, but that is what the Declaration of Independence was all about.

Brave and brilliant men were willing to pledge “... their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor… ” to fight for the cause of Independence to create a nation of freedom. It was the appeal to the concept of self-government and freedom from tyrants. And certainly, the consequences of the Declaration’s call to action altered the course of human history; the world had never witnessed a revolution like common colonists fighting against tyranny to create a Land of the Free.

June 14th and Foundations of Freedom

Jun 14, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

Flag Day in the United States is the celebration of the birthday of the Stars and Stripes. The holiday falls on June 14th, yet for most Americans, Flag Day is not on their radar like the celebration of Memorial Day or Independence Day. Sadly, many Americans may not even realize Flag Day exists, and would not take much time to even reflect on the deeper meaning of the U.S. flag. Yet, there may be many more who fail to realize that prior to the creation of the flag, a formal foundation for the existence of the United States also came on June 14th—two years before any Betsy Ross moment.

June 14, 1775, is also considered the birthday of the U.S. Army, two years before the Stars and Stripes came into existence, yet 12 years before the United States of America became officially recognized within the community of nations. The chronology may pass with little notice, but it is important. There was no legitimate United States of America for there to be a “U.S.” Army in 1775. This so-called “army” became known as the Continental Army, but it was really not understood as such in that time. However, the assemblage of various colonial militias could be referred to as a genuine band of freedom fighters because freedom was the focus of their daring defense of their right to be respected as a free people.

First Democrat Casualty in the Swamp Wars

May 20, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

The firing of James Comey was more representative of the first real Democrat Deep State casualty of the “Swamp Wars” than any other. However, despite top Democrats calling for Comey’s head at the beginning of May, the puppet masters in the Party took the position that the former FBI Director could still be useful with the now famous “Comey memo.” It is like using Comey as a dead fish to create an unbearable stench within America - a putrid stench aimed at manufacturing doubt and suspicion about the Trump presidency - yet again.

Now, the current “Democratic” Party mantra that seems to have the most traction is the “collusion” between the dastardly Russians and Donald Trump, or members of his election staff, or transition staff, or presidential staff (any propaganda that would work). Putin and the Russians are the current bad guys of the month. And ironically, James Comey may have been on the list in the past, but now he is considered useful still with his memo, which says little, and generates more unanswered questions, but fans the fumes of the stench. And though the Deep State Obama/Clinton tool was surgically removed from his post, and represents the first casualty the Democrat Party suffered in the Swamp Wars, he proved useful still.

Mother’s Day has been a target of the Marxist Left

May 14, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

Last week many people all over the world may have celebrated the Cinco de Mayo holiday, without really knowing why they were celebrating. The holiday is often mistakenly assumed to be the celebration of Mexican independence. But it is not linked in that way, and in Mexico, this holiday is not a major holiday as it celebrates a minor victory in a major invasion of the nation that led to Mexico’s loss of independence. This is a clear example of a holiday celebration that has lost any semblance of relation to its original cause; now it is a celebration just for fun, but in recent years the Left had sought to politicize the holiday.

The history behind Cinco de Mayo reveals high treason!

May 5, 2017 — Dennis Jamison

There is actually more to the holiday of Cinco de Mayo than great tacos or lively music; there are lessons to be learned hidden within the history of this holiday, which provide deeper understanding of a very perilous time in the Americas. Today Cinco de Mayo has taken on a more political significance in light of Donald Trump’s campaign promises, and his challenge as the President of the United States to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. It was one major campaign theme that helped Trump to capture the attention of the American people, as well as the votes that got him elected. Yet, once upon a time, long, long ago, the U.S. stood by Mexico to defend the nation against a genuine enemy.

Ironically, the reason that there is a Cinco de Mayo holiday was partly due to problems that confronted a newly elected Mexican president, Benito Juarez, are similar to problems that Donald Trump faces as a new president of the United States. In the middle of the 19th century, economic woes led to Mexico’s struggle for survival against a full-scale French invasion. In 1861, newly elected Benito Juarez, the first Native American elected president of Mexico (a definite outsider), faced a huge national debt left by a previous government, faced hostility from the nation’s elitist politicians, and confronted an internally organized attempt from former government officials to destroy the administration of the legally elected Juarez, a genuine representative of the people.
