FREEDOM RINGS 1776 is a conservative voice, defending the views of those who still believe in the constitution and opposing any and all who would lead us from our tried and true beliefs. We who still believe in the spirit of 1776 must oppose anyone who would set this nation on a course that will fundamentally transform America.
Two years ago during the last Presidential election we read of voting machines misbehaving and turning Republican votes to Democrat votes before the voter's eyes. Again this is occurring and we are being told that the machines need to be re-calibrated. Something, my friends, is terribly wrong with our voting machines but it is not quite what people think. The fact of the matter is that the situation is far more diabolical than meets the eye. Hint ... Big Brother is laughing. Continue reading and I shall explain that cryptic remark...
You Can't Fix Stupid, you know, unless you are living in a world of total disillusionment, that no matter what the outcome of the 2014 elections, nothing is going to be altered. A few names, a few faces, and a little rhetoric, will perhaps change, but the choreography and the play will continue unabated. The die is cast and the downward spiral of civilization cannot be altered by you, me, or the best intentioned politician. In short, the transformation, not only for the United States but of all of western nations is proceeding on schedule. The one difference that will soon be apparent is the pace is about to quicken.
Many look at today's headlines, the economic situation, our domestic agenda and foreign affairs, and wonder how in the world we ever got into such an incomprehensible quagmire of despair, fear, and hopelessness. The answer is really quite simple ... Philosophy. Throughout history great nations have risen and fallen due to the philosophy they embrace or abandon. While the masses generally feel that the topic of philosophy is beyond their understanding, whether they know it or not, everyone, whether for good or bad, lives by a philosophy, most of which are destructive.
Being an old school patriot I flatly refuse to refer to Hussein Obama as either President or Commander in Chief. He holds the office of President but leads not in the ways of America. He has the position of Commander in Chief and is in the process of destroying the greatest military the world has ever known. Lately there has been a great deal of discussion about his so called Latte Salute. So what! I would naturally expect a real Commander in Chief to learn military protocol which requires one to empty his right hand before rendering a military salute. I do not expect this from Hussein as I do not regard him fit to lead our nation's warriors. What more can you expect from a Marxist oriented community organizer. Alinsky would be proud while I feel only contempt.
I was recently reading an essay by one of our great patriots, Andrew C. McCarthy, and encountered a term he used that I had never seen before: Transnational Progressives. I knew immediately what he was referring to as I had often written about the topic under a different title ... The New World Order. Henceforth I shall refrain from referencing the NWO as mention of this movement gives the leftists an attack tool of conspiracy theory. Mister McCarthy's chosen phrase is far more defensible and accurate. Researching transnational progressivism led me to Wikipedia(disappointing results) and to other sources that eventually took me to Amazon and the book 'Sovereignty Or Submission' by John Fonte. The subtitle is very revealing of the book's contents ... 'Will Americans Rule Themselves Or Be Ruled By Others?'
One of my more intellectual friends from Norway recently brought up the topic of mankind's tendency toward denial in in the face a reality that simply will not fit into their perceptions of what the world should be. That form of escapism takes its toll. That condition is properly known as cognitive dissonance, and it runs roughshod over what we all know to be fact. Those facts if accepted, however, lead us to the inevitable conclusion that the world as we know it is ending and tomorrow's world more closely resembles a nightmare from Dante than the dreams of our Founders. Consequently most of our people are living in a state of denial and without fail, denial always leads to ruin.
Were I to define myself it would have to be as a philosopher, a scientist, a historian, a writer and poet, a patriot, a warrior, an idealist, and a fool. That last distinction has only recently been added to the list, due primarily to the fact that in holding onto my idealism for so long, I have ignored the fact that the ideals I treasure still apply to me but do not extend to most of my fellow Americans as I once believed. Accepting this reality has no doubt struck me to the core but even in the face of that reality my head is bloody, but unbowed, as the poem states.
I recently read an expose of the New World Order concept and the author was convinced that he had once and for all laid that absurd notion to rest. Said author took one crackpot article regarding the NWO, sliced and diced its nonsensical precepts, and successfully proceeded to expose that second author as the fool that he is. Exposing fools is easy, connecting the dots on an agenda promoted not by fools, but by a few diabolical geniuses, is somewhat more challenging. Never one to take the easy route I maintain my belief that the NWO is alive and well, designing a future of subservience for mankind that few shall enjoy.
On August 5, 2014 we, as a nation, were notified of the death of a man who served his country proudly since 1980, in the United States Army. Major General Harold J. Greene was killed in Afghanistan by a member of the Afghan Security Forces. As Major General he is the highest ranking military official to die on foreign soil under hostile conditions since the Vietnam War. He is also the highest ranking military member to die since since Lt. General Timothy Maude, who died as a result of the hostile act of September 11, 2001.
