King George, Virginia


25 May 2020


Fellow Members of the King George TEA Party:

I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day.  We certainly had great weather for your barbecue, boat outing, or the picnic you may have had.

America in general, and Virginia in particular, has started our third month of imposed restrictions due to the Wuhan, China influenza.  As you will see below, however, American freedom is breaking out all over the country regardless of what ad hoc rules various state governors and city mayors have enacted in the name of “public health.”  As noted in an article in the Economy section below, the true mortality impact from the ChiCom virus is on-par with suicide statistics… which has never been addressed in a similar fashion with economic lockdowns and civil arrests… and We The People have had enough.  See the TEA Party / Nationalism Movement section below for more on this.

What has amazed me through his whole time is how Americans have been able to adapt to the lockdown situation and still go about daily life.  In many ways, there are people that have just gone back to normal life regardless of what “the powers that be” have dictated.  In others there are folks that turned the “lemons” of the situation into an opportunity - a “lemonade."  A case in point is a local church which has (with the exception of the very first Sunday) held “parking lot church” services with increasing participation.  Services are held outdoors in the parking lot, with cars spaced in alternating parking spaces, and the pastor has used either a public address system or an FM broadcast transmitter to reach the audience.  Getting together in this way demonstrates American resilience, initiative, resourcefulness, and independence.  Photo included below.

Speaking of China... back in the January / February timeframe I highlighted how the residents of Hong Kong, China have lost the decades of self-determination -and freedoms- they have become accustomed to due to the recent expiration of British control.  Very quickly the Hongkongers began to push back against the encroaching Communist rule and their plight now is very similar to what our Founding Fathers faced circa 1775.  If you have been watching the news, however, you might have noticed that things are turning sour for them at an increasing rate.

I have read a couple of books about China, the Chinese, and their activities to subvert America.  The most notable book that I would recommend to anyone on this subject would be “Chinese Industrial Espionage: Technology Acquisition, and Military Modernization” because it describes an all-encompassing attack upon the American homeland.  This trend continues today and the symptoms can be seen if you know where to look for them.  For example, American universities that refuse to disclose how much foreign funding comes from China, the American Chamber of Commerce dissuading manufacture “re-shoring” back to the USA, and the outright purchase of Hollywood film companies that produce movies for American audiences (e.g., AMC Theaters, Dick Clark Productions, Legendary Entertainment, etc.).  I have added some news articles on this subject below in order to share this concern with you.  The Communist Chinese influence must be thwarted.

TEA Party / Nationalism Movement

From the top article below:

  • "Don’t count on the NYPD to drag out swimmers. Across the nation, cops have displayed common sense and sympathy for their neighbors. Four sheriffs’ departments in Michigan have announced they are refusing to enforce Whitmer’s orders. 'With limited resources,' said the Shiawassee Co. sheriff, 'our priority focus will be on enforcing duly passed laws.'  Those are beautiful words, especially coming from law enforcement."

Regulation

From the top article below:

  • "The coup isn’t now. The coup is what took over the culture and society of the west post WWI.  Most of the world has folded to them, even America to an extent.  They just never controlled America completely, and that galled them.  Both because while there’s freedom somewhere they can’t install their dictatorship of the enlightened, and because (they are, remember, economic illiterates) if only they had the wealth of America they could really get rocking and show the world how well socialism/communism works.  So for the last thirty years they’ve been doing everything they can to take America down and break her.  They thought they’d succeeded.  And then 2016 sucker punched them.  Which is why they have been trying to engage in what Nunes calls coups (and are by definition.)  The problem is…. they haven’t been working."

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

From the top article below:

  • "'With an annual budget of over one billion dollars and the explicit Small Business Administration affiliation rules made it clear that Planned Parenthood was not and is not eligible for the Paycheck Protection Program,' Lankford wrote. 'Like other large organizations that returned monies they were not eligible for, Planned Parenthood should immediately repay the American people the money they took from deserving small businesses and non-profits.'"

Corruption / Rule of Law

From the top article below:

  • "Perhaps the most troubling - and dangerous - aspect of the current political conversation is the unwillingness of virtually every elected official and every media pundit to confront what “Obamagate” is obviously about, which is treason. Specifically, treason committed by the Obama White House in attempting to block and then overthrow the Trump presidency. Obamagate is about the failed attempt by President Obama and his appointees to use government intelligence agencies to spy on the Trump campaign and White House, to concoct a phony accusation of collusion with Russia against the president and then to obstruct his administration and overthrow him."

National Sovereignty / Border Security / Illegal Alien Invasion

From the top article below:

  • "'This is taxpayer money that may only be appropriated by the legislative branch. This is not a slush fund for the governor to spend as he sees fit,' Harmeet K. Dhillon, a San Francisco attorney and chief executive officer for the Center for American Liberty, said in a written statement Thursday. 'At a time when law-abiding Californians are crushed by unemployment, housing issues, business closures and massive limitations on our normal lives, Governor Newsom is doing an end-run around the legal guardrails in place.'"

Conservatism / Capitalism

From the top article below:

  • "For proof, skeptics need only recall the enormous influence that Saudi Arabia has wielded in American foreign policy over the last 50 years. All of this was due to the simple fact that the Saudis produced oil and America needed oil.   Today, China produces everything and America needs everything. China’s level of influence—if not control—will be proportional to its leverage.   This should chill the heart of every red-blooded American patriot."

Socialism / Creeping Socialism

From the top article below:

  • "It’s authoritarianism at work. But, of course, they don’t even see themselves as authoritarians. They never do. Rather, they just have some secret understanding of the world, they know better than you and they’re only trying to save you from yourself. We have a word for people like that: Elitists.  It’s not a good feeling to feel like you got played. It’s not a good feeling to feel like we’ve had the rules changed on us mid-game. Not to benefit lives and livelihoods, but to attain and maintain power."

Censorship / Social Media Censorship

From the top article below:

  • "The shutting down of church services is a form of censorship as well, and I can’t help but believe that the Democratic governors have enjoyed keeping the church folk away from worship just a little too much. Thankfully, saner legal heads seem to be prevailing on that front in the last couple of weeks.  The policing of speech had become worrisome long before this pandemic hit us. The danger now is obviously having some of these more tyrannical types make some new permanent censorship rules. Speech that’s censored today may very well remain censored when we emerge from this rough patch."

Denial / Deception / Propaganda / Social Engineering

From the top article below:

  • "A difficult problem is that much of the misinformation is not completely fabricated, but is the result of spin.  There is no simply way to prevent misinformation, and there is no single root cause for the appearance of misinformation, and there are different motives for it.  Yet it is evident that prominent public figures play a large role in formulating and spreading information, as in the present case about COVID-19.  Attempts to check statements about actions or policies of public authorities are difficult, since they are spread not only in the media, but also in emails, private channels, and above all online.  According to one survey by the Institute for the Study of Journalism, misinformation accounts for 87% of social media interactions while fabricated ones amount to about 12%."

From the top article below:

Elections / Vote Integrity

From the top article below:

  • "Recent data has not shown a compelling public health justification for vote-by-mail. Wisconsin is one of the only U.S. states that held its primary election with in-person voting after the nation’s coronavirus lockdowns began. Only a few dozen people at most were confirmed to have contracted the virus after participating either as voters or poll workers, and none of those cases was fatal. Out of the 413,000 participants, that equals an infection rate below two-hundredths of one percent. Just days later, South Korea held national elections which did not result in any new coronavirus cases."
