“Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the Lord do so to me, and more also, if aught but death part thee and me.” – Spoken by Ruth to Naomi, her mother-in-law on fidelity.
My wedding ring has inscribed on it “whither thou goest.” My marriage, as in my life, fidelity has been key to how I live, love and prosper.
Today, I ask where is our fidelity as individuals, families, communities and a nation?
The Marine Corp motto is Semper Fidelis which is Latin for always faithful. According to the U.S. Marine Corps website:
Latin for “Always Faithful,” Semper Fidelis is the motto of every Marine—an eternal and collective commitment to the success of our battles, the progress of our Nation, and the steadfast loyalty to the fellow Marines we fight alongside. Established in 1883, this motto distinguishes the bond developed and shared between Marines. It goes beyond words that are spoken, as it is a warriorhood that is lived.
Today our nation is in dire need of those who serve us to have fidelity to our nation. Without this fidelity our nation is adrift in the world. Others see our lack of fidelity as a sign of weakness and history tells us our enemies are always ready to take advantage of our lack of fidelity.
This is not new in our history. Before WWII our people did not want to get into another land war in Europe. Still reeling from the aftermath of WWI and in the midst of a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, beginning in the United States, America was weak.
On Sept. 1, 1939, after previously seizing Austria and Czechoslovakia, Nazi Germany invaded neighboring Poland, resulting in Britain and France declaring war on Germany and thus kicking off World War II in Europe.
As all of this was unfolding, in a poll conducted Sept. 1-6, 1939, Gallup asked Americans to what degree they supported assisting England, France and Poland. Americans supported providing material assistance to these three countries but were overwhelmingly opposed to sending military forces to fight Germany.
|Should we sell them food supplies?||74||27|
|Should we sell airplanes and other war materials to England and France?||58||42|
|Should we send our Army and Navy abroad to fight against Germany?||16||84|
|GALLUP, SEPT. 1-6, 1939|
This American half heartedness to help fight Nazi Germany in 1939 lead directly to the December 7th, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor by naval and air forces of Imperial Japan. A date that has gone down in infamy.
Actual or perceived U.S. weakness makes our enemies stronger, history tells us so.
Fast Forward to 2022
America is now facing a war in the Ukraine. If an Iran nuclear deal is reached which allows the mullahs to obtain nuclear weapons then a war in the Middle East between Iran and other Arab nations in partnership with Israel is a real and present danger. Add to this China’s clear intent to intimidate, if not provoke a war in the Pacific theater, over Taiwan rearing the ugly Communist dragon’s head.
China, Russia and Iran feel our lack of fidelity. We predict Iran and China will follow Russia’s lead in testing our fidelity as a nation.
Do we need to send U.S. troops to the Ukraine? No, however, we need to do all we can to help Ukraine and the Ukrainian people defeat the Russians. Not to do so will cause a humanitarian tragedy and potentially encourage Russian military action beyond the Ukraine.
What is Biden doing to prepare America and our military? Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
Biden and the Joint Chiefs of Staff are more concerned about diversity, inclusion, equity than winning wars. While Russian was invading Ukraine our military was holding mandatory classes on “gender identity”. To understand watch this U.S. Army recruitment ad:
Today Americans are fast approaching yet another depression that may be worse than that during the 1930s. One caused by Biden and his administration’s policies. The price of food, gasoline, clothing, cars, homes, and consumer goods in general are rising at an alarming rate.
Question: Does America need war fighters or a military that is well versed in gender identity?
The Unfaithful Are In Control
For something we’re told is “transitory,” inflation sure is persistent. The latest evidence arrived with a jolt Wednesday when the Labor Department reported that consumer prices jumped 0.9% in October, or 6.2% from a year ago and the fifth straight month higher than 5%.
That’s also the fastest rate since 1990, despite reassurances since March from the White House, Federal Reserve and Keynesian economists that inflation would soon vanish. It follows Tuesday’s report that wholesale prices rose 0.6% in October, or 8.6% from a year earlier. Producer prices flow into consumer prices, assuming businesses believe they have enough market power.
QUESTION: Why aren’t Biden, his administration and the majority of Democrats in Congress and the Democratic Party concerned about this?
ANSWER: They have neither an eternal nor a collective commitment to the success and progress of our Nation. They simply don’t put Americans first.
The unfaithful are now in control in the United States of America.
Indicators of our unfaithfulness as a nation began in Ferguson, Missouri. The Ferguson unrest (a.k.a. Ferguson uprising, Ferguson protests, Ferguson riots) involved protests and riots which began on August 10, 2014, the day after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson. This lead to the myth that black lives are more important than everyone’s lives. Which led to professional athletes taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem, to individuals, corporations and non-profits funding organizations like Black Lives Matter. This in turn led to teaching Critical Race Theory on public schools across the nation. A curriculum that paints Americans as racist.
Finally, this led to Democrats appeasing Black Identity Extremists (BIE).
Black Identity Extremists were identified by the FBI as a threat to our national security. A report published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on August 3rd, 2017 stated, “The FBI assesses it is very likely that BIEs’ perceptions of unjust treatment of African Americans and the perceived unchallenged illegitimate actions of law enforcement will inspire premeditated attacks against law enforcement over the next year. This may also lead to an increase in BIE group memberships, collaboration among BIE groups, or the appearance of additional violent lone offenders motivated by BIE rhetoric. The FBI further assesses it is very likely additional controversial police shootings of African Americans and the associated legal proceedings will continue to serve as drivers for violence against law enforcement. The FBI assesses it is likely police officers of minority groups are also targeted by BIEs because they are also representative of a perceived oppressive law enforcement system.” Black Identity Extremists include Black Lives Matter, which was co-founded by a self-identified Marxist, some members of the Democrat Black Caucus and black members of the Biden administration and cabinet.
The Bottom Line
Dr. Francis Collins, former NIH Director and current “science advisor” to Joe Biden in a newly leaked audio, obtained by The Daily Wire’s Meg Basham, demonstrates how Biden, his administration and the Democrat Party are unfaithful to America.
Dr. Collins claimed, even though science journals were already reporting that vaccinated people were just as likely to spread the then-dominant Delta variant as those who were unvaccinated,
“The US government does have the authority to mandate vaccinations if there is an outbreak that is threatening people, because it’s not just about you, it’s about the people you’re going to infect.”
Collins went on to ask,
“Do [mandates] convince people who otherwise wouldn’t get them? Oh yeah, especially if it means losing your job.”
Collins then said evangelicals, in particular, have over-emphasize notions of personal liberty when it comes to mandates, saying they have so,
“wrapped themselves in the flag and wrapped themselves in this concept of personal freedom, that public health just grates on them.”
Here’s a list of things Democrats love to hate:
The Bill of Rights. The Constitution of the United States of America. The American flag. Parents who push back at school board policies. Jews who voted for and continue to support Trump. Blacks, Hispanics and other people of color who voted for and continue to support Trump. Donald J. Trump and his entire family, e.g. his wife, sons, daughter and grandchildren. Canadian and American truckers driving home the anti-vaxx message, e.g. Canada’s “Freedom Convoy” and America’s “The Peoples Convoy.” Those who are not vaxxed. Those who have natural immunity to Covid and refuse to get jabbed. The 79 million Americans who voted for Donald J. Trump in 2020. The patriots who held a peaceful protest in Washington, D.C. on January 6th, 2021. Americans who know that gender is binary, male=XX and female=XY. Straight men. Straight women. Mothers. Fathers. Families consisting of a husband, wife and their biological children. Also known as parents with children. A constitutional Republican form of government where the governed have the power, not the government. Those who believe in an all mighty and all powerful God, e.g. Jews, Christians and Muslims. Those who believe government is not God. Anyone who shouts out, posts, shares on social media, has a bumper sticker or wears t-shirts with the phrase “Let’s Go Brandon.”
The bottom line is Democrats hate America, the American people and our Judeo-Christian roots.
You see the danger to America is not Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of a Biden presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgement to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Biden, who is a mere symptom of what ails America.
Blaming the prince of fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Biden, who is, after all, merely a fool. The Republic is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president!
Question: As the foundations of America are crumbling, what are the faithful and righteous to do?
Answer: There’s nothing that the faithful and righteous cannot do.
Stand up and be counted. Semper Fidelis!
