King George, Virginia

Fellow Members of the King George TEA Party:

I greatly appreciate those that provided some feedback to Black Lives Matter Fredericksburg.  For me, it was truly difficult to read their list of demands and not burst out loud with laughter over the absurdity of their manifesto.  For those that would like to again review their edict, you can find it here (their e-mail address can be found on the bottom of their webpage in case you want to jump in on the fun):


I thought one letter to them was quite succinct and on-point without devolving too deeply into an argument over racism.  Bottom line is that the entirety of BLMFXBG's claim for status was via explicit demand and is very reflective of their totalitarian and self-important viewpoint.  The below letter to them "cuts to the chase" on that issue:

  • Subject: Demands

  • If BLM wants to participate in city government, get elected to those positions. Demanding a seat is not consistent with city, state or federal law.  When you run for office, the people will decide if you are qualified to make decisions about police training and police job requirements.    

  • I am not impressed with BLM since I read that the money donated to you really goes directly to the Democratic Party. This is quite deceptive of your organization.  

  • In addition, you make a big noise about slavery which was abolished in this country more than 150 years ago at the cost of thousands upon thousands of men’s lives, but you say nothing about the fact that TODAY in Lybia black men are being sold for $400. You say nothing about the multitude of Black deaths in Chicago every week.  In the end, you don’t really seem to stand for anything.  You are just another wing of the Democratic Party trying to force your will on the majority because you don’t have enough support to effect the change you want legally.

Follow-on interest from this month’s meeting discussion on Virginia militias has continued.  One representative example of “how things are done” would be the Bedford Militia and I am sharing the link to their website below for your information.

One point they did make clear can be found at the bottom of their homepage and I have included it here:

  • "Who is not welcome to join the Bedford Militia
  • *  Communists – Socialists
  • *  Neo-Confederates
  • *  Racists
  • *  Nazi
  • *  Or other Abherent viewpoints contrary to the ideals found in the U.S. and Virginia Constitutions."


The ’trending" topic in the news this past week has been the insurrection in Seattle Washington conducted jointly by Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  Other copy-cat efforts have similarly popped up (Nashville, TN and Asheville, NC among others) but they have not garnered the same amount of attention because of the difference in scale.  My assessment is that the second- and third-order effects from their actions will not be favorable for them and their cause.  We The People warmly welcome anyone who PEACEFULLY exercises their First Amendment rights but we reject anyone or any organization that inflicts wanton damage and destruction as part of that process.  See the Corruption / Rule of Law section and the Anarchy / Communism / Socialism section for more information.

The reaction to the Antifa / Black Lives Matter insurrection in Seattle has been beyond reason.  Damage to statues, calls for the removal of statues, calls to expunge the Confederate flag from view, demands to rename military bases, cancellation of long-established pro-police TV shows, and removal of movies produced decades ago are some of what we have recently seen.  This is all part of the propaganda and social-engineering “active measures” being forced upon the population… so take a look at the Censorship section and the Denial / Deception / Propaganda / Social Engineering section for more information.

While arguments have been made to explain that the months-long COVID-19 lockdown provided the societal foundation (i.e., unprecedented unemployment in such a short period of time) for the Antifa / Black Lives Matter insurrection there does seem to be indications that the propagation of the copy-cat events were orchestrated.  It will be interesting to see if investigations done by the FBI reveal such as they begin their law enforcement efforts to identify ring leaders.

The most uplifting article this week is a company’s advertisement video found in the Patriotism / America First section but the most distressing article is the one by the police officer relaying his thoughts regarding “defunding the police” movement (Corruption / Rule of Law section).  Both are worth your time.

And finally, I have included yet another Easter Egg in this Newsletter.  The Miscellaneous section below has one linked article that is quite entertaining to watch (well, the beginning anyway).  Sure, nowhere near as funny to watch as last week’s Newsletter article cited in the Miscellaneous section (produced by Twitter handle Trump’s Black Grandson) but I do appreciate the harsh words against flagrant panderers.

And now, some news….


TEA Party / Nationalism Movement

From the top article below:

"He shared that he's noticed in the wake of George Floyd's death and the protests and rioting that have followed around the country that 'people look at each other differently! ... It's changing us! It's dividing us!'  But he reemphasized to his players that 'we're not gonna be divided! We're not gonna let society tell us who to hate — you need to decide that ... by their heart, their character, and how they treat others!'"


Taxes / Taxed Enough Already

From the top article below:

"Here’s what’s actually happening.  When New Yorkers get sick of paying not just their federal taxes, but the high state and sales taxes Cuomo loves, they move down to Florida, where the state taxes are low. If they are eligible, like the millions enjoying retirement in Florida, they collect from Social Security and Medicare after years of paying into those federal programs while living in New York. They may have had a high-paying job in New York and finally wised up and realized they could save a lot more of their own money if they lived in Florida.  The result: Cuomo is now facing a massive shortfall in revenue."


Regulation

From the top article below:

"'With all due respect to the senator, I am a carpenter, and the idea that she, or any other government official, knows what’s best for me or any member of my family is preposterous,' he told NHJournal. 'The senator says she would be for allowing well-educated parents to choose, but that choice wouldn’t be for ‘everyone?’ I would ask the senator what her definition of well-educated is?  I may not have a degree, but I can guarantee that when it comes to decisions regarding my family’s interest I am far more educated and capable than any government official will ever be,' Hawes said."


Economy

From the top article below:


Patriotism / America First

From the top article below:

"It feels hopelessly callous to compare such a loss, which is of cosmic proportions, to the loss of physical property. That is what Hannah-Jones is counting on. She wants us to feel ashamed of weighing a man’s life against the worth of an ice cream parlor or a pair of Air Jordans, so that in our shame we will retreat from defending the value of “property” at all. This, much like the 1619 Project itself, is an expertly calculated attempt to make Americans retreat in disgust from the founding principles of their own nation. By sleight of hand, Hannah-Jones—and all who argue with her that looting is fair retaliation for police violence—is trying to make us forget that a man’s right to life and a man’s right to property are one and the same."


First Amendment / Freedom of Speech / Freedom of Religion

From the top article below:

"After the apparent death of the counterculture movement in the 1960s, the hippies disbanded. Some of them went on to live productive lives, while others wandered the earth bumming cigarettes.  But a great many of them became teachers, and after almost five decades of infecting the education system with radical ideologies, now they’ve fostered an environment in which far-left teachers feel safe to openly challenge American values and rights, and to indoctrinate and intimidate those who don’t agree with them.  That is especially true on the campuses of our universities, where the far-left takeover is glaring, even at Louisiana State University."


Second Amendment / Right to Keep and Bear Arms

From the top article below:

"Back in 2017, a study by Pew Research shows that 41% of Republicans, 16% of Democrats and 38% of Independents have a gun in their home. After the recent Covid-19 epidemic and the George Floyd riots, that number is likely much, much higher. As the NRA’s Charles Cooke argued recently, freedom is an issue that is stirring most Americans. There are thousands of protestors. There are many millions who watch in abhorrence.  You are simply not paying attention or stuck in progressive La-La land if you believe this won’t make a decisive difference come November 3rd."


Fourth Amendment / Right to Privacy

From the top article below:

"The principal and the teacher cited a rule stating that students may not bring guns to school and claimed it extended to virtual classes as well, Sperry said, adding that the school handbook does not address rules for virtual learning at all. Besides, 'he did not BRING anything to this meeting and he is in his own home,' she said. 'They were simply in the background in our home, safely stowed in a room behind a closed door, with no ammunition (if you can even call it that).'"


Abortion / Right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness

From the top article below:

"In the end, the rule change is not that big of a deal. Transgender people will still have protections under other laws, as will women who desire an abortion. The biggest change is that if people object to performing those medical procedures on religious grounds, they can refuse."


Corruption / Rule of Law

From the top article below:

"There will be more threats, more accusations of racism and more lies told about us.  I used to talk cops out of leaving the job. Now I’m encouraging them.  It’s over America. You finally did it.  You aren’t going to have to abolish the police, we won’t be around for it.  And while I know, most Americans still appreciate us, it’s not enough and the risk is too high. Those of you that say thank you or buy the occasional meal, it means everything.  But those of you that were silent while the slow turning of the knives in our backs happened by thugs and cowards, this is on you.  Your belief in hashtags and memes over the truth has and will create an environment in your community that you will never expect."


National Sovereignty / Border Security / Illegal Alien Invasion

From the top article below:

"While the Koch groups request Trump not to reduce the current foreign worker inflow, the Kochs have vowed not to financially support the president in his 2020 re-election bid against Democrat nominee Joe Biden.  The donor class is making a last-ditch effort to stop Trump’s rumored expansion of his existing executive order on immigration that halted new employment-based green cards."


Anarchy / Communism / Socialism / Creeping Socialism

From the top article below:

"These purges happened at 'thought leader' publications that purvey the propaganda that passes for news (the Times and the Inquirer) or shape the popular culture (Variety).  The latest high-profile firing, though, is moving from thought leaders to any leaders.  Adam Rapoport, who has spent almost ten years as Bon Appétit's editor in chief, felt the wrath of the mob.  We've moved from news to food."


Censorship / Social Media Censorship

From the top article below:

"'I think there are -- clearly these, these entities are now engaged in censorship,' Barr responded. 'And they originally held themselves out as open forums where people, where the third parties could come and express their views and they built up a tremendous network of eyeballs.  They had a lot of market power based on that presentation,' the attorney general added. 'And now they are acting much more like publishers because they're censoring particular viewpoints and putting their own content in there to to diminish the impact of various people's views.'"


Denial / Deception / Propaganda / Social Engineering

From the top article below:

"I mean, the New York Times has made itself a laughingstock, but this is no laughing matter because cancel culture threatens the very principles of free inquiry and open debate upon which our society is based. And you see other manifestations of cancel culture all across the country today. In many cases they have adopted the spirit of a Jacobin mob in the French Revolution, the Reign of Terror trying to completely erase our culture and our history. Unfortunately, many Democrats are vying to be the Robespierre for this Jacobin mob."


Attacks Against Conservatives

From the top article below:

"I made great efforts to keep this website separate from my work. I did not write about Cornell that frequently, and rarely about the law school itself. Nonetheless, the website and my political views were the elephant in every room, because the website is widely read, particularly by non-liberal students.Over the years, many students approached me privately and behind closed doors to express gratitude that someone was able to speak up, because they remained politically silent out of fear of social ostracization with the related possible career damage from falsely being accused of one of the '-ists' or '-isms.'  Not until now, to the best of my knowledge, has there been an effort from inside the Cornell community to get me fired."


Elections / Vote Integrity

From the top article below:

"One reporter asked McEnany whether it would be safe to vote in the November election amid the coronavirus pandemic.  'You’re asking a hypothetical about something five months from now at a time ironically when the media has expressed much outrage about a lack of mitigation efforts taken by some of the protesters,' she said.  McEnany said that people who were allowed to exercise their First Amendment right to protest even though many Churches were still closed.  'The First Amendment is a beautiful thing,” she said. “People have the right to go to church or mosque or synagogue.'"
