A Kaddish for the Living….

My soul aches and wishes to mourn for a forgotten man.

He was the original Resistance Banker and the most important industrialist the German Reich killed in their bloody quest to subjugate men, peoples and nations, across the globe.

For the first time in my life I am moved to remember this person and it all happened as an “accident” of fate…

Yet now I want to remember him and to say a Kaddish for all of his 206 forgotten bones, that deserve a decent remembrance, and open that his assassins never allowed in his time to be said.

So here is a Kaddish for a great human, a decent man, and a person of quiet dignity — who also happens to be my Grandfather Constantin Crocos.

A quietly powerful man who was killed by the Gestapo, when the Nazis discovered the massive apparatus that he had created in order to save Jewish children from extermination at the hands of the SS, and how he had also financed the continuous provisioning of armaments and munitions for the Guerillas and the whole of the resistance during the second world war NAZI occupation of Greece and the Balkans…

I was reminded of this person when in a men’s mountain camping trip in the snowy Washougal mountains of the Cascades — I run into Akiva…

Akiva was a Rabbi from Oregon who became a fast friend in the wilds of the monitions.

Yet Akiva is also a rabbi that takes no shit from anyone, and yet that fateful snowy weekend, he was gutted and frazzled as he spoke to me about the SS, the Gestapo and his family lost in the Concentration camps, and fed into the NAZI ovens and gas chambers.

And he also told me about my Jewish heritage… that I did not know it even existed.

We spend a sleepless night contemplating things and being bloody angry, and it was after that sleepless & teary eyed night exchange, that the epigenetic memory of these long past events kicked in.

It was my cells and my RNA, this vast library of memories from all the generations of men that came through, that brought to me the reality that hit me like a mountain of granite crashing down upon me.

Memories of things that were left unspoken, merged with swiftly spoken words of a person whose death had happened more than two decades before I came into this world.

And it all shook me to the core.

Yet I now know that I fervently wish to remember…

And I know that I owe a debt of honor to a long lost Grandfather whom I need to mourn.

Who I must remember as this long lost hero whose return from the lands of forgetfulness and fear of reprisals has so far been delayed…

So here is a Kaddish for my grandfather Constantin, and I hope that amongst all of You — Ten Men of the Jewish faith will wish to come and join me, to say the mourners’ Kaddish prayers with me in Seattle, some time in early January of this next year to come…

Here is a psalm of the Kaddish…:

So now what remains is to pray that may the Good God bless his Eternal Soul, with everlasting Grace and Love, and to keep him near him, in the Elysian fields of Honor… that I will soon join him and feast at the King’s table as a Man among Men. an

No worries about the people here on earth, because I know that the people he saved, and all those he touched — have always loved, prayed, mourned and remembered him for the Great Soul he was.

And form hence forward — I will also remember him

Thank You dear Constantin.

Yours,

Dr Churchill

Destiny is calling…

After delivering my annual speech in London about “What Would Winston Churchill Do?” [https://www.eventbrite.com/e/book-talk-winston-what-would-winston-churchill-do-to-make-britain-great-again-tickets-44496051889] I was reminded to offer all my friends a reading of the “WINSTON – What Would Winston Churchill Do?” book that I had released recently.

And indeed, You can read the whole of this book “WINSTON, What Would Winston Churchill Do?” in it’s entirety here: https://beb.mobi/2017/05/02/what-would-churchill-do/

It is not a polemic, nor is it a simple biography, because grandpa Winston Churchill needs “No Defense” from me, and far too many biographies have been written about him already — and yet I offer my thoughts here because the battle for the image of Winston Churchill in today’s pop culture rages on the subconscious of the illiberal minds, and in the hate filled vacuum of the daft feckless twats that are pretending to be educated and outraged and instead only succeed in proving their bias and their solid dalliance with the Devil that threatens to subsume Western AngloSaxon Christian culture and our Civilization, right along with our Constitutional Republic…

And am not just saying all of this, out of some sort of wish to throw sunlight or cast shade, as needed, towards the popular culture’s chasms of ignorance; but because popular culture has become unbearably stupid, intolerant, illiberal, and certainly self serving.

Proof in point, is that not too long ago the decorated NASA astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted a Churchillian tweet that caused a shitstorm all over the internet…

“In Victory Magnanimity”

That tweet was something as harmless as the famous ode to the somber code of the “Gentleman Statesman” by my grandfather Winston Churchill’s who had uttered those thoughts many months ahead of V-Day, when he was fighting his own allies during the Teheran summit “In Victory, Magnanimity,” wanting to wake up the ethical side of the other two Allied leaders, Stalin & Roosevelt, that he was dealing with at the time and had found them “wanting” in that department.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-19 at 2.14.32 AM

 

And indeed, this “In Victory Magnanimity” came as Churchill was fighting against the unreasonable desire of Stalin and Roosevelt who wanted to assassinate the whole lot of the German Officer’s Corp — some 50,000 men — in order to decapitate their leadership and thus avert the possibility of Germany rising up again to bloody Europe once more…

And this seriously contemplated mass murder and unqualified war atrocity, is the remedy that Stalin and Roosevelt wanted as the “insurance policy” that would keep Germany “quiet & docile” for a couple of generations. But in their desire to suppress Germany through “Mass Murder” they met with the famous Churchillian “White Cliffs of Dover” where Grandpa Winnie built his “walled defenses” against both Stalin & Roosevelt, in the Teheran Summit, and quite frankly stopped this idiocy in the other allied leaders’ mental tracks.

And yet Winston Churchill, built his eloquent defense of honorable conduct amongst those that were expected to be declared Victors of the Second World War, quite simply by constructing his “red line” as an impregnable wall of ethical behavior, mustering the moral high ground, as Churchill could only do against his own allies and friends in high places.

And to be maligned for this by today’s snowflakes — it goes far beyond the pale.

Yet “In Victory Magnanimity” and in defeat resilience. That is my mantra and sure enough it was shared by Grandpa Winston Churchill to the depths of his great heart…

This was the “Strong Moral Wall” that reduced the errant ambitions of the other two leading men of the Allied powers, who mistook total military victory, as a permissible excuse for mass murder, and serial war crimes, against the soon to be vanquished Germans, and then had to reduce their military planning to the status of a joke about being in the jungle of battle, and the fog of war, that justified “Red in Tooth and Claw” as both Stalin and Roosevelt felt empowered and willing to do, up until they met Churchill’s moral wall, and recanted.

“In Victory Magnanimity”

Thus it is no wonder that both Stalin & Roosevelt hated Churchill after the Teheran Summit, and for making them look like bloody Neandertals, after his stout defense of DECENCY and DIGNITY in VICTORY.

 

Screen Shot 2018-12-19 at 2.15.06 AM

 

And perhaps one should compare “In Victory Magnanimity” by Churchill, as a far better method of dealing with the vanquished foe, than the law of the jungle as exemplified in “Red in tooth and claw” and as expressed through the murderous desires of both Stalin & Roosevelt, that were discussed during the Teheran Summit, well ahead of the decisive victory against Germany and many months ahead of her unconditional surrender that took place much later in the VE-Day of the summer of 1945.

And that is why the essence of Winston Churchill’s words “In Victory Magnanimity” resonates so much with me today, as with many other Gentlemen Statesmen & Servant Leaders, who quietly maintain the dignity of our Christian nation in perpetuity.

Is it any wonder that Winston Churchill absolutely refused to attend the funeral of either one of his wartime partners, Roosevelt and Stalin, who both rushed to the grave, the one right before the end of the war, and the other within a few years after the war?

And that is why that statement “In Victory Magnanimity” is so important, because it not only differentiated Winston from the other world leaders of his time, but also because it showed his personal qualities assisted by his grounding in the Christian beliefs of compassion, morality, and kindness, and as a seriously strong adherent of Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, that were expressed throughout all the pursuits of his voluminous life, where there was always the temptation, the opportunity, and even the convenience towards taking the low road. And that is why he uttered these magic words “In Victory Magnanimity” even though everyone knows that there was no other Warlord as powerful and as committed to total victory as Winston Churchill was, during the course of the Two World Wars…

Yet back in the emasculated jungle of today’s Tweeter sphere, the grounded NASA astronaut, succumbed to the politically correct pvssies, and to the character assassination mobs, who flooded Twitter with their outrageous outrage, along with their righteous brethren, the Democratic snowflakes, when all collectively went berserk, attacking the fallen astronaut Kelly, for quoting Winston Churchill’s “In Victory Magnanimity.”

Sadly the suddenly “grounded” astronaut Kelly, completely surrendered his masculinity, was neutered via Tweeter, and simply chose to oblige the internet freaks as he started groveling by tweeting this shameful statement of inadequacy, idiocy, and lunacy: “Did not mean to offend by quoting Churchill. My apologies. I will go and educate myself further on his atrocities, racist views which I do not support.”

Damn…

Admittedly, we live in interesting times as the Chinese would have you believe and the internet idiots feel that they “own” this time in culture, when decent and otherwise sensible yet weak people, are surrendering far too easily to the brown-shirt Gestapo brigades of hectoring morons, pvssies, and politically correct extremist assassins.

Yet, I persist: “In Victory Magnanimity”

We live in an era in which the counterexamples are few and far between as when Winston Churchill uttered “In defeat, defiance” which is another great Churchillian maxim. And indeed it’s hard to name a single political figure today who embodies this maxim, as opposed to the simple to follow “in defeat, early retirement to avoid a difficult primary” as was practiced in the 2018 midterm elections by more than 40 top Republicans, who run for the safety of retirement instead of running for re-election, fearing to face their electors and thus avoiding the political fight in the field of honor.

So maybe as a benefit to humanity’s leadership — it is time to reacquaint ourselves with the original Churchillian spirit, because there is no better way of leadership than reading the best biography of Winston Churchill yet written, because it’s far more than a Biography and far more than simple History — it is two lives of two men separated by one generation and an ocean…

Indeed the book that I’ve written is an antidote to stupidity, as well as to the reigning popular culture of the queens of fake news, self serving conceit, self-deception, untruth, and the cliché offenses of the snowflake kingdom of our day.

You can read it in here at the http://www.BEB.mobi starting in the early part of 2017, when I thought that I was good as dead, being paralyzed and fully incapacitated with brain trauma, and preparing my own funeral — after an assassination attempt by the Antifa snowflakes when I was giving a speech inside Microsoft corporation Headquarters in Redmond WA, across the lake from Seattle, and their Antifa employees conspired to kill the American Churchill.

And this comes as a benefit to you, because I decided to release the book before I died, as I was fully expecting to; back after this assassination attack in February 28th of 2017, that left me paralyzed with serious brain trauma and and so now, because of that — You can read the book “WINSTON – What Would Winston Churchill Do?” here in it’s entirety: https://beb.mobi/2017/05/02/what-would-churchill-do/

There is a silver lining in every dark cloud…

Take the life of Winston Churchill for an instant, as he was born into the Duke of Marlborough’s palace, which one would think that it leads straight to a life of privilege, and yet he was deprived of the most basic good that is offered to all children: Love…

We all know that Winston Churchill, suffered greatly as a child, under the contemptuous and remote glare of a conflicted step-father and a hugely self-indulgent errant mother who only cared about her royal lover, and her various others and far too many society conquests of sexual and social intercourse, personal gratification, and far more fun and games, than any measure of decency allows. And at the same time never offering even a moment’s care for the parenting of young Winston, and certainly depriving the young sprout from the Love that children crave at the earliest moments of their lives, and that we all seek, up until the moment we are planted in our graves as our souls go seeking the eternal love of our Creator and Loving God…

We also know that one of the reasons that the young Winston Churchill chose a military career, was because he came of age during the British empire era, where willingly and valiantly fought in four wars in four different continents, and all of that was done by the time he was only 25 years of age, and soon thereafter he showed bravery in battle and also when he was a prisoner of war in South Africa and escaped his captivity to fight another day… And we also know that in his early middle age, he fought in the bloody trenches of the muddy Western front of the First World War, as a form of personal atonement for his involvement in designing the disastrous Gallipoli expedition.

And also let us recall that Winston Churchill only inherited debts from his parents, and he had to work hard to satisfy his creditors and to repay these debts, but also earn his own living by writing and then writing even more — not unlike yours truly.

And indeed Winston Churchill worked hard and in earnest, each and every day, by producing copious amounts of newspaper and magazine articles and many thousands of words of well constructed books. And through his prodigious literary efforts — he not only earned his rather expensive “keep” but he also earned his whole family’s living. And indeed for all that serious work, he was also ultimately rewarded above and beyond the norm, through the Nobel Prize for Literature that he earned for his six volumes of the “History of the Second World War” that he almost single handedly prosecuted form beginning to end.

Some privilege…

And indeed the main patriarchal privilege of Winston Churchill was to become fodder for the cannons, the bullets, and the swords and spears of war, and that is when he showed his metal, as when he took the opportunity to persevere under the immense weight of his inner expectations.

He always said that we are all worms but that he was a glow-worm and he meant it. And that’s how he got to do his duty to serve, and even survive and thrive. A responsibility, that came with being born to a historic name, and through his own Purpose and sense of Destiny, as he was always contrasting himself and his life achievements with those of famous war leaders and successful statesmen like Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Pericles of Athens, Napoleon Bonaparte, and his very own ancestor — the Duke of Marlborough.

Yet today, some people tend to consider that Winston Churchill earned unearned glory, by simply being a member of the English Establishment and the hated Aristocracy and Patriarchy. But if you think that Churchill was a complete creature of Aristocratic Establishment — I must disabuse You of that fallacy, because Winston Churchill was none of that.

He was never like that, simply because Winston Churchill was a principled contrarian and an unmitigated Golden Rule, and middle of the road thinking man. And as proof of that, I bring you the fact that as Chancellor of the Exchequer, Winston Churchill, not only championed free trade to the consternation of all the Tory protectionists, but he taxed them to the hilt, in order to make them change their ways. And indeed, Winston supported high taxes on the rich Bourgeois, the Aristocrats, and the Lords, while at the same time he offered pensions for the old, the widows and the infirm — to the consternation & infuriation of his aristocratic peers, the Lords, and even his own Prime Minister.

Further, Grandpa Winnie, also called for serious rearmament before both World Wars, against the hopes and convictions of the pacifists and of the appeasers in power, as well as the Aristos and the Socialists, the Communists, and all the other fractions of the two polarized extremes of the political spectrum.

Grandpa Winnie had many dreams…

And indeed his great unfulfilled institutional political dream and ambitious undertaking, was to create the political party of the sensible center. Churchill wanted to create the party of the Golden Rule, because for Winston being at the center of the political establishment, is what allowed him to be indifferent to it, and to be able to force his will upon the governing cabinets, and also to be a Political and Military Leader that is far better than the establishment of his day could ever be…

And it is that multi-generational dream, of Winston Churchill, that I have fulfilled to the last minute detail.

And as the American Churchill — I’ve fulfilled “Winston’s Dream” and have done so, through my work as the Creator at the helm of a Union of Great Men amongst the Great Men of the Lincoln Political Party of America.

And as you would expect — I am indeed mighty proud of this achievement of mine, because the Lincoln political party of these United States of America, is clearly the party of the Golden rule, standing in the middle of this unsmiling bipolar and rather depressive two party oligopoly, known as the Uniparty that is pushing to the extremes our American Democratic Republic of these United States, while making China’s One party rule set like and exercise in civility…

As for Churchill being a Champion of the Empire — it surely does not mean that Winston was some kind of bigot or racist because he supported the civilizing influence of the British Empire and the Commonwealth of Nations. He famously ribbed Roosevelt who was never tiring of preaching and patronizing Churchill about the British Empire, that under the British Raj the Indian natives of the subcontinent increased their numbers to hundreds of millions, whereas under the American United States federal administrations, the American Indians were decimated and their numbers reduced to within an inch of their earlier millions in numbers.

“Magnanimity In Victory”

Proof is always in the pudding, and as we all know — well before the turn of the previous century, back in 1899, Winston Churchill envisioned a future for South Africa where “Black is to be proclaimed the same as white, in order to be constituted his legal equal, and to be armed with political rights.”

And in the case of the Indian Raj — Winston Churchill denounced the 1919 wanton massacre of Indian demonstrators at Amritsar as “a monstrous event.” He actually promoted social reform at home so that Britain could be a worthy leader of its dominions abroad and of the CommonWealth of Nations.

His ideas were of the best essentials of Classical Liberalism, and Yes, Churchill was an unashamed patriot, a paternalist, and a product of his time — well ahead of his time — and, by those standards, a real liberal progressive.

And his life is proof that the moral judgments of the present are not superior to those of the past, irrespective of time and consequences…

“In Victory Magnanimity”

One of the major alleged crimes for which Churchill is now blamed is the perpetration of a “genocide” in India after a cyclone-caused famine in 1943, and yet evidence for this is that he used racially insensitive humor during the food crisis in the midst of the Second World War. Except the snowflakes forget that Winston Churchill did send whatever food he could spare to India, at the same time that Japan was threatening to invade India from Burma, while the rest of the whole world was at war, and some rather difficult choices had to be made.

It is because Churchill made the difficult judgments in an ethical manner, and he fought with courage, offering his blood, sweat, and tears, that his latter-day detractors can afford to speak freely, and indeed are able to live in a free world, that gives them the freedom to make this type of judgments against Grandpa Winnie…

“In Victory Magnanimity”

Yet he also said that in politics, what counts are actions, not words, and that is why the English warriors said that “after hearing the speeches of Winston Churchill over the BBC — we wanted the Germans to come over, so that we can fight them in person…”

This is what one R.A.F. squadron leader was saying of Churchill’s speech of June 1940, following the deliverance at Dunkirk: “He makes people feel they are living their history.”

The Russian ambassador said of the effect of Churchill’s words on the public: “It’s precisely the resolute and definite character of the British Premiere’s stance which has done so much to help the masses overcome their initial fright.”

John F. Kennedy said: “He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle,” (stealing a line from wartime journalist Edward Murrow) when awarding Sir Winston Churchill the unique honor of the United States citizenship in 1963, through a joint Congressional, Senatorial, and Presidential executive action.

Please do remind me again, which other world leader ever received that honor?

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

In retrospect, Winston Churchill, was able to arouse Great Britain and cause the people the desire to fight because English history along with all the battles and the struggles of the Elizabethan, Napoleonic, and Victorian wars were taught in schools, so the stories of Drake and Nelson were well known to his listeners.

Yet, that cannot be said of the young generation of US students and adults today, or of the young Britons; because a 2008 survey found that upwards of 50% of all teenagers thought Churchill was a fictional character but 58% thought Sherlock Holmes was real.

Yet it doesn’t have to be that way…

Because in all polls of the most important Leaders ever — Winston Churchill always comes up to the top spot.

And he also gets the pole position amongst the most important men to have ever lived except for Jesus Christ…

Take that you ignorant fools of the Twitter mobs and go slither under the rock where you came from, because you need to nurse your ignorance — while we take the time to reconcile ourselves to the decadence of the present…

And since we choose to not remain ignorant of the achievements of the Great Men of the past, and to the debt we owe them for being FREE today, we need to be reminded that “In Victory Magnanimity” even towards the snowflakes and the buttercups of our day and age, who plan assassinations and killings hiding their identities behind black masks and thirsting for blood from within the Antifa mobs of fascists and traitorious haters of our Liberty.

Tube Alloys & Winnie the Pa…

May 8th 1945, marked the start of the Armistice that we still enjoy to this day.

Indeed to be proper & correct, we must admit that we live into the arms-race-peace otherwise known colloquially as “detente” that was created back in the end of summer of 1945.

Yet, as new people who haven’t lived thought the war — we fail to understand the benefits and certainly forget to treasure this wondrous & overlong “moment of peace” that has held strong, up to this very day…

But that is another matter altogether…

We enjoy the Peace and have become accustomed to the fruits of it — largely forgetting that things are not always static and are seldom evident as they appear…

In large measure we owe this ignorance to the length of the present moment of Peace, because we are transcending and confusing the continued peace with something rather exotic that is the absence of war.

War that has been the father of us all, and that was originally won in 1945 through the use of a far reaching and innovative weapon that was originally called “Tube Alloys”

“Tube Alloys” as it was described in unassuming and unthreatening parlance — was the secret weapon that was derived from the incredible power unleashed by the chain reaction of smashing variable atoms together…

And that weapon, the “Tube Alloys” was used well after the celebrations of the Armistice day which was commemorated as Victory day at the end of the seriously devastating Second World War in Europe in the midst of 1945 — died down…

This “Tube Alloys” were deployed from the clouds and rained down on Japan spreading a wind of instant death and a cloud of destruction, unalloyed by any mitigating factors or circumstances.

And this “Tube Alloys” weapon, finally brought a tremulous peace, a not quite fully baked resolution of the ravages and instabilities of the Second World War, because as we were still fighting all over the various Asian & Pacific fronts for several further months after Armistice Day in Europe — there were still millions of lives that were lost till the final bitter end of the bloodiest and the nastiest war we’ve been through as humans on this Earth.

And although this significant V-E Day Armistice, and the resultant cease fire was signed by the European combatants — the war was still several months away from the final end, and instead it was just heating up as the development of the “Tube Alloys” was rushed to conclusion through the Manhattan project.

It was a strange time to be still fighting Germany’s allies, well after Germany’s complete capitulation. Still the Soviet declaration of war against imperial Japan, and the massive Soviet military invasion of Manchuria coinciding with the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings were both three months ahead on the calendar. Mainly, because they wouldn’t take place until the 9th of August 1945, when the Russian forces attacked and routed the Japanese occupying Manchuria and China, thus resulting in the Japanese retreat to the home islands…

This was the day of the finessing of the first of two American atomic bombs that were dropped on Japan. One atomic bomb was dropped by the bomber “Enola Gay” over the city of Hiroshima on August 6th. This bomb’s fissionable material was U-235, (Uranium-235) the half-life of which is 700 million years, and yet it killed almost immediately approximately one hundred thousand people. The second nuclear atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki and it killed almost half than the one hundred thousand people who perished in the first atomic blast over a population center. That second bomb used in Nagasaki, employed Plutonium 239 as the fissionable material and it had a smaller kill rate. Keep in mind that the half life of Pu-239 is 24,000 years, and that this type of radiation, once it enters the ground — will be there for a very long time.

During the final stage of World War II, the United States detonated two nuclear weapons over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945, respectively. The United States dropped the bombs after obtaining the consent of the United Kingdom, as required by the Quebec Agreement.

The Quebec Agreement was an agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States outlining the terms for the coordinated development of the science and engineering related to nuclear energy, and, specifically nuclear weapons. It was initiated by Winston Churchill and signed by him and Franklin D. Roosevelt on the 19th of August 1943, during the height of World War II, at the Quadrant Conference in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada, when both Churchill and Roosevelt felt that the development of this new weapon “Tube Alloys” would be the deciding factor for the Second World War, and thus, they had to develop it faster than the Germans and the Russians ever could.

Screen Shot 2018-12-02 at 12.25.58 PM

The Quebec Agreement stipulated that the US and UK would pool their resources to develop nuclear weapons, and that neither country would use them against the other, or against other countries without mutual consent, or pass information about them to other countries. It also gave the President of the United States a veto over post-war British commercial or industrial uses of nuclear energy. The agreement merged the British Tube Alloys project with the American Manhattan Project, and created the Combined Policy Committee to control the joint project. Although Canada was not a signatory, the Agreement provided for a Canadian representative on the Combined Policy Committee in view of Canada’s contribution.

British scientists performed important work as part of the British contribution to the Manhattan Project, and in July 1945 British permission required by the agreement was given for the use of nuclear weapons against Japan.

The September 1944 Hyde Park Aide-Mémoire extended Anglo-American cooperation into the post-war period, but after the war ended, American enthusiasm for the alliance with Britain waned and the status of nuclear cooperation went out with it, because of leaks, fear of espionage, and illegal technology transfer to the Soviet Union’s nuclear weapons development program.

Finally, the “McMahon Act” ended technical cooperation through its control of “restricted data” after the theft of Nuclear Technology that found it’s way to the Soviet Union through the Rosenbergs who were convicted of playing a central role in an American spy ring that passed secret data concerning the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union during and immediately after World War II. The Rosenbergs were executed for their part in the nuclear energy and atomic weapons espionage, that came to light when Klaus Fuchs, the German-born physicist who was imprisoned in the 1950’s in Britain after being convicted of passing nuclear secrets to the Soviet Union was first arrested and interrogated. The physicist Klaus Fuchs was first arrested in Great Britain in the early 1950s and then he cooperated with the authorities for a reduced sentence, whereas the Rosenbergs fully denied their treasonous espionage against the United States.

And that was the practical end of the Quebec Agreement, that was superseded by a “Modus Vivendi” which was a working agreement, starting on the 7th of January 1948, that allowed for sharing of technical information between the United States and Great Britain; with Canada being the junior observer of the agreement.

In the summer of 1945 the agreement was in full force, and thus upon the passing of the torch from the recently deceased FDR who died on April 12th of 1945, the decision also passed to the new President Harry Truman, who fully engaged in the consultation of the Anglo-American Allies, in order to decide the timing of the Japanese bombing to coincide with the declaration of War by the Soviet Union against Japan…

Screen Shot 2018-12-02 at 12.28.41 PM

Thus after careful consultations between the new American President Harry Truman and the UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill, came the two atomic nuclear bombings over Japan, which arguably brought the closing of the Second World War in the Pacific, through the massive killing of between 130,000 – 230,000 people, amongst the two cities — most of whom were Japanese civilians that were simply going about their daily lives in the two cities.

These were the tentatively named new weapons called “Tube Alloys” a name given to the nuclear weapon for reasons of subterfuge by none other than Winston Churchill  who was a not so subtle master of disguise…

Thankfully, the development of the “Tube Alloys” and the subsequent atomic bombings over Japan’s cities of Hiroshima & Nagasaki remain to this day, the only ghastly reminder of the unleashed nuclear atomic energy weapons as the only wartime use of nuclear weapons against population centers — in the history of technologically advanced warfare.

And through the strength of this devastating demonstration in Japan, came the terrible Detente — that meant that these “Tube Alloys” also kept the Peace between the Cold War adversaries for more than Seventy years now…

Yet back in the final months of the war, the Allies prepared for what was anticipated to be a very costly invasion of the Japanese mainland. This undertaking was preceded by a conventional and firebombing campaign that destroyed 67 Japanese cities. The war in Europe had concluded when Germany signed its instrument of surrender on May 8, 1945. As the Allies turned their full attention to the Pacific War, the Japanese faced the same fate. The Allies called for the unconditional surrender of the Imperial Japanese armed forces in the Potsdam Summit’s Declaration, on July 26th of 1945, with the alternative being the unleashing of “prompt and utter destruction” on the home islands of Japan.

Sadly, the Japanese imperium, the military government, and the emperor — along with the devoted citizenry — all rejected the Allied ultimatum and instead doubled down on their vicious fight, so that the war continued unabated in the Pacific theater of conflict with the Allies looking at millions of casualties, if they were to storm the Japanese home islands to depose the military government and force the surrender of the Imperial cabinet, so that a cease fire can be introduced, and a democratic government can be installed…

Yet, by August 1945, the Allied effort at the “Manhattan Project” had produced two types of atomic bombs, and the 509th Composite Group of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) was equipped with the specialized Silverplate version of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress that could deliver them from Tinian in the Marianas to the Japanese home-island territories. Orders for the atomic bombs to be used on four Japanese cities were issued on July 25th by President Harry Truman and the Pacific command.

Screen Shot 2018-12-02 at 12.30.20 PM

On August 6th, the US Military’s warplane “Enola Gay” a specialized Silverplate version of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, flew above Japan’s skies and zeroed in to the target where it dropped the “Little Boy” a uranium gun-type bomb on Hiroshima. Three days later, on August 9th, another Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber dropped the “Fat Man” a plutonium implosion-type bomb on Nagasaki. These two bombs immediately devastated their targets and spread nihilism over the whole of Japan. Over the next two to four months, the acute effects of the atomic bombings killed 90,000–146,000 people in Hiroshima and 39,000–80,000 people in Nagasaki. Roughly half of the deaths in each city occurred on the first day. Subsequently, large numbers of people continued to die from the effects of burns, radiation sickness, and other injuries, compounded by radiation illness and associated diseases, blamed on the nuclear fallout, for many months and years afterward.

In both cities, most of the casualties were civilians, although Hiroshima had a sizable military garrison, which was mostly deployed elsewhere at the time of the nuclear bombings. Naturally the nuclear fallout continued for many months and years afterwards and to this day, we study and learn from it’s radiation related effects and meta-effects.

It was after this bomb attacks and the declaration of War by Soviet Russia against Japan that caused it to announce its surrender to the Allied forces on August 15th, six days after the bombing of Nagasaki and the Soviet Union’s declaration of war.

On September 2nd, the Japanese government signed the instrument of surrender, effectively ending World War II. The various ethical and war-conventional legal ramifications for the bombings, are still debated to this day, although a firm precedent has by now been established for it’s use in the pursuit of Peace.

Collectively these three actions initiated by the United States and by the Soviet Russian Union against Japan — brought a swift end to the Second World War in the Pacific on September 2nd of the year 1945, when Japan was forced to surrender unconditionally…

It is worth noting that by the time of the Japanese surrender, there was in the works an Allied Coalition that had been subscribed by almost 60 nations, amongst all those that had jumped onboard opportunistically, and were thus arrayed against the Axis powers of Evil at the very glorious end — but like all things great and small in history — it had all started with One Man:

Winston Churchill.

And then through his courage, persistence and love of Freedom, he traveled great distances and overcame incredible odds to find his first potential ally … and then to cultivate this relationship, in order to built a working friendship.

And that first friend of Winnie, was none other than the leader of the Soviet Union, the young seminary student from Tsiblishi, the bank robber of Georgia, the October Moscow terrorist, the bloody purger of men and whole peoples — none other than Marshal Joseph Stalin.

And now we had two men arrayed together against Evil.

It would be two years before these two men became three…

Because that was when the American President deigned to join the English people in order to fight against fascism — when FDR had clearly seen the opportunity to shine by joining the ones who were going to stand firm against Hitler.

FDR wanted to be opportunistic and wait until one or the other of the two great combatants would emerge victorious and then he would make a deal with the winer, but Churchill and the ensuing events did not allow him to maintain his opportunistic stance, his gambling mindset, and his zero-sum game of many ancient nation’s existence. Instead he was drawn pell-mell into the great Allied partnership of the three leaders — where the always opportunistic Franklin Roosevelt, had to contend with the honorable gentleman Winston Churchill, and with the bloody tyrant Joseph Stalin, as an equal partner, of the alliance that had emerged as the forces of LIGHT that were prosecuting the war in Europe and the Pacific agains the forces of DARKNESS in this ancient bloodletting ritual.

Indeed, these three men were vastly different in substance, in upbringing, and in political beliefs, and just as surely, they were always in some state of disagreement. Yet they were also kept on good terms with each other, through frequent dialogue, very many exchanges, and through Summitry. Summitry was a word developed by the attendants of the personal summits that were organized always and forever by Winston Churchill — the unalloyed Architect of Victory in the Second World War.

Led by Winston Churchill’s enduring spirit — these Summits that some people say that he invented — brought these three Leaders together, so that they changed the course of history for the Good and in Service to Humanity.

Indeed their summit exchanges were remarkable, and oftentimes stormy, as can be seen by their messages, telephone calls, and diplomatic missives and even by the personal letters that were exchanged between the three world leaders over the course of their remarkable friendship.

Their personal lives, became intertwined and their individual and joint battles — won and lost — forged these three men into a valiant and unified force, in the service of Liberty and Light.

And as they shared the spotlight and the hot seat, for the decisions that brought victory to our alliance during the biggest war of our history — their interwoven and remarkable tale of friendship, proves a fascinating study of Statesmanship and Courage in the face of adversity, that might be necessary reading for all those who are in Public Service, or aspire to become Great Leaders.

Many of these letters are now available to the researcher and the historian in a collated form from the British Archives and the British Library where yours truly delved into them…

And for those of you who remember Winston Churchill’s speech after the Battle of Britain, dedicated to the many fallen pilots of the British Royal Air Force — “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few” — now, You would agree that this sentence perhaps more aptly applies also to himself and to the other two allied leaders, who engineered the V-Day triumph in the Second World War, because it was all a closely run thing…

And it was the stark threat of fascism engulfing this Earth from both ends, that became the catalyst for this improbable friendship between an Anglo-American romantic warrior knight, and a crass slavic tyrant who had come up the ranks of the Communist party as the bloodiest comrade of the Russian Communist Bolshevik Revolution.

These two men were later to be joined by the wealthy & opportunistic New York City social butterfly and ersatz Democratic party reformer — Franklin Delano Roosevelt who was more dependent on his mother and her inheritance, than on himself, or on his cabinet, or even upon his wife and personal family…

Yours,

Dr Churchill

Yet the tube alloys keep on going and multiplying up to this day, when each and every potentate and petty tyrant upon this earth wants to have one or more to saber rattle his neighbors and imagined enemies and friends…

And we constantly fight to keep the peace as we measure our stance and resolute calm against those that seek to arm themselves with weapons of mass destruction and atomic war. North Korea, Iran, Turkey, and many others nuclear weapons claimants, come to mind, and we need to address these present and future enemies of Peace at each and every turn of the dial…

And if we need to bomb them to stop them — so be it.

But we also have a responsibility to keep the Peace at the face of War and Adversity.

So in defense of Peace I must say this:

Since the beginning of time, we have been inspired through the use of arms, fire, brawn, tools, weapons, and war technology, to maim, kill, enslave and subjugate people throughout the world.

Yet at the same time we have developed our intellect through great teachings that guide us, as we discern how best to navigate our way through this beautiful Green Earth…

Yet it is this creation which You have shared with us, and with all creatures who share this magnificent place with us where there is one teaching that says we human beings are created in Your image…

And what we do on this earthly plane manifests You and your plan into this world.

Therefore, we know that You, in Your mysterious ways, have the power to unleash great destruction on this planet and that we can be the instrument of that fire and brimstone…

Indeed, You can cause the earth to tremble with such violence and force that buildings collapse and whole cities are buried with millions of people underneath leaving barely a trace…

You can make the rains to fall with such speed and volume that small streams swell into wild rushing rivers, causing rivers of mud that swallow our houses and those who live in them…

And You can send bolts of lightning hurdling down to the earth, setting forests on fire, destroying every tree and bush, every fawn, bird, and tree frog that had once lived there…

Is it this destructive side of You Lord, that you want us to make manifest in this world that you have created, that you have so generously shared with us, and with all of the other creatures who share this space with us?

Do you want us to use the tremendous intelligence and skill with which you have endowed us in order to build bombs that can unleash great destruction wiping out whole populations and innocent and blameless creatures, leaving wide swaths of civilization eviscerated in a matter of seconds?

Do you want us to use the creative force that pulses through us to develop weapons of mass destruction that have the capability to end life at such a pace and speed that we cease to see the humanity in the faces of those whom we mow down and are no longer able to recognize the humanity in the faces that stare back at us in the mirror?

Or maybe something else?

We pray from the depths of our hearts and souls, that you help us choose to manifest not your destructive forces, but rather, Your goodness in the world

And we beseech you to help us to see that the loving kindness with which the mother caresses her son is the human quality we embody, and that the same loving kindness instilled in us, is the force with which we care for those who are innocent, vulnerable and dependent, on our loving and protective care.

So…

Let us be strong and help us see the grief of the mother lamenting the loss of her son upon the cross, in the same grief as is found in us, when we are our brother’s keeper and we forget our duty to choose life.

So, we opt to choose Life.

The Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address…

This year on November 19th was the 155th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, which is a rare example of brevity and impact from one who understood rhetoric and the value of principled oratory in service to the public good.

Here is the text:

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived, and so dedicated, can long endure.

We are met on a great battle-field of that war.

We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.

The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, and for the people, shall not perish from this earth.”

–Abraham Lincoln
November 19th, 1863

Australian Gun Restriction & Confiscation Laws update…

Australian Gun Restriction & Confiscation Laws update:

Here’s the true story from Officer Ed Chenel, who is a police officer in Melbourne Australia:

“Hi Yanks,
I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under.

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own
government, a program costing Australia taxpayers
more than $500 million dollars.

The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria:
lone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.
Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not
and criminals still possess their guns!
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.

Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’

You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.

However, this Australian experience speaks for itself.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.”

Yours,
Dr Churchill

Happy Thanksgiving & a loving tribute to our national symbol…

“Barbara Frietchie”
–By John Greenleaf Whittier.

[Poem written and first published in 1863]

Screen Shot 2018-11-24 at 12.24.05 AM

“Up from the meadows rich with corn,
Clear in the cool September morn,

The clustered spires of Frederick stand
Green-walled by the hills of Maryland.

Round about them orchards sweep,
Apple- and peach-tree fruited deep,

Fair as a garden of the Lord
To the eyes of the famished rebel horde,

On that pleasant morn of the early fall
When Lee marched over the mountain wall,—

Over the mountains winding down,
Horse and foot, into Frederick town.

Forty flags with their silver stars,
Forty flags with their crimson bars,

Flapped in the morning wind: the sun
Of noon looked down, and saw not one.

Up rose old Barbara Frietchie then,
Bowed with her fourscore years and ten;

Screen Shot 2018-11-24 at 12.53.26 AM

Bravest of all in Frederick town,
She took up the flag the men hauled down;

In her attic window the staff she set,
To show that one heart was loyal yet.

Up the street came the rebel tread,
Stonewall Jackson riding ahead.

Under his slouched hat left and right
He glanced: the old flag met his sight.

“Halt!”— the dust-brown ranks stood fast.
“Fire!”— out blazed the rifle-blast.

It shivered the window, pane and sash;
It rent the banner with seam and gash.

Quick, as it fell, from the broken staff
Dame Barbara snatched the silken scarf;

She leaned far out on the window-sill,
And shook it forth with a royal will.

“Shoot, if you must, this old gray head,
But spare your country’s flag,” she said.

A shade of sadness, a blush of shame,
Over the face of the leader came;

The nobler nature within him stirred
To life at that woman’s deed and word:

“Who touches a hair of yon gray head
Dies like a dog! March on!” he said.

All day long through Frederick street
Sounded the tread of marching feet:

All day long that free flag tost
Over the heads of the rebel host.

Ever its torn folds rose and fell
On the loyal winds that loved it well;

And through the hill-gaps sunset light
Shone over it with a warm good-night.

Barbara Frietchie’s work is o’er,
And the Rebel rides on his raids no more.

Honor to her! and let a tear
Fall, for her sake, on Stonewall’s bier.

Over Barbara Frietchie’s grave
Flag of Freedom and Union, wave!

Peace and order and beauty draw
Round thy symbol of light and law;

And ever the stars above look down
On thy stars below in Frederick town!”

In Memory of the fallen veterans in wars past and present…

On this Veteran’s Day we ought to recall the bravery of all those fallen to keep us strong…

“Sail on, oh ship of state,

Sail on, oh Union strong and great,

Humanity with all it’s fears,

With all their hopes of future years,

Is hanging breathless on thy feet.”

Screen Shot 2018-11-11 at 12.24.11 AM

And as we commemorate the fallen veterans and thank them for their selfless sacrifice of all they had to give — we should also recall those who gave some of what they had…

But for those that gave up all of their tomorrows for us to have long days of Peace — we are eternally grateful and promise to not let them be forgotten.

And when our time comes to give up all in defense of our State — may God grant us the strength to be as strong as you have been and let our actions be equally virtuous.

Yours,

“The Building of the Ship”
–BY HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

“Build me straight, O worthy Master!
Stanch and strong, a goodly vessel,
That shall laugh at all disaster,
And with wave and whirlwind wrestle!”

The merchant’s word
Delighted the Master heard;
For his heart was in his work, and the heart
Giveth grace unto every Art.
A quiet smile played round his lips,
As the eddies and dimples of the tide
Play round the bows of ships,
That steadily at anchor ride.
And with a voice that was full of glee,
He answered, “Erelong we will launch
A vessel as goodly, and strong, and stanch,
As ever weathered a wintry sea!”
And first with nicest skill and art,
Perfect and finished in every part,
A little model the Master wrought,
Which should be to the larger plan
What the child is to the man,
Its counterpart in miniature;
That with a hand more swift and sure
The greater labor might be brought
To answer to his inward thought.
And as he labored, his mind ran o’er
The various ships that were built of yore,
And above them all, and strangest of all
Towered the Great Harry, crank and tall,
Whose picture was hanging on the wall,
With bows and stern raised high in air,
And balconies hanging here and there,
And signal lanterns and flags afloat,
And eight round towers, like those that frown
From some old castle, looking down
Upon the drawbridge and the moat.
And he said with a smile, “Our ship, I wis,
Shall be of another form than this!”
It was of another form, indeed;
Built for freight, and yet for speed,
A beautiful and gallant craft;
Broad in the beam, that the stress of the blast,
Pressing down upon sail and mast,
Might not the sharp bows overwhelm;
Broad in the beam, but sloping aft
With graceful curve and slow degrees,
That she might be docile to the helm,
And that the currents of parted seas,
Closing behind, with mighty force,
Might aid and not impede her course.

Screen Shot 2018-11-11 at 12.38.19 AM

In the ship-yard stood the Master,
With the model of the vessel,
That should laugh at all disaster,
And with wave and whirlwind wrestle!
Covering many a rood of ground,
Lay the timber piled around;
Timber of chestnut, and elm, and oak,
And scattered here and there, with these,
The knarred and crooked cedar knees;
Brought from regions far away,
From Pascagoula’s sunny bay,
And the banks of the roaring Roanoke!
Ah! what a wondrous thing it is
To note how many wheels of toil
One thought, one word, can set in motion!
There ‘s not a ship that sails the ocean,
But every climate, every soil,
Must bring its tribute, great or small,
And help to build the wooden wall!

The sun was rising o’er the sea,
And long the level shadows lay,
As if they, too, the beams would be
Of some great, airy argosy,
Framed and launched in a single day.
That silent architect, the sun,
Had hewn and laid them every one,
Ere the work of man was yet begun.
Beside the Master, when he spoke,
A youth, against an anchor leaning,
Listened, to catch his slightest meaning.
Only the long waves, as they broke
In ripples on the pebbly beach,
Interrupted the old man’s speech.
Beautiful they were, in sooth,
The old man and the fiery youth!
The old man, in whose busy brain
Many a ship that sailed the main
Was modelled o’er and o’er again; —
The fiery youth, who was to be
The heir of his dexterity,
The heir of his house, and his daughter’s hand,
When he had built and launched from land
What the elder head had planned.

“Thus,” said he, “will we build this ship!
Lay square the blocks upon the slip,
And follow well this plan of mine.
Choose the timbers with greatest care;
Of all that is unsound beware;
For only what is sound and strong
To this vessel shall belong.
Cedar of Maine and Georgia pine
Here together shall combine.
A goodly frame, and a goodly fame,
And the Union be her name!
For the day that gives her to the sea
Shall give my daughter unto thee!”

The Master’s word
Enraptured the young man heard;
And as he turned his face aside,
With a look of joy and a thrill of pride
Standing before
Her father’s door,
He saw the form of his promised bride.
The sun shone on her golden hair,
And her cheek was glowing fresh and fair,
With the breath of morn and the soft sea air.
Like a beauteous barge was she,
Still at rest on the sandy beach,
Just beyond the billow’s reach;
But he
Was the restless, seething, stormy sea!
Ah, how skilful grows the hand
That obeyeth Love’s command!
It is the heart, and not the brain,
That to the highest doth attain,
And he who followeth Love’s behest
Far excelleth all the rest!

Thus with the rising of the sun
Was the noble task begun,
And soon throughout the ship-yard’s bounds
Were heard the intermingled sounds
Of axes and of mallets, plied
With vigorous arms on every side;
Plied so deftly and so well,
That, ere the shadows of evening fell,
The keel of oak for a noble ship,
Scarfed and bolted, straight and strong,
Was lying ready, and stretched along
The blocks, well placed upon the slip.
Happy, thrice happy, every one
Who sees his labor well begun,
And not perplexed and multiplied,
By idly waiting for time and tide!

And when the hot, long day was o’er,
The young man at the Master’s door
Sat with the maiden calm and still,
And within the porch, a little more
Removed beyond the evening chill,
The father sat, and told them tales
Of wrecks in the great September gales,
Of pirates coasting the Spanish Main,
And ships that never came back again,
The chance and change of a sailor’s life,
Want and plenty, rest and strife,
His roving fancy, like the wind,
That nothing can stay and nothing can bind,
And the magic charm of foreign lands,
With shadows of palms, and shining sands,
Where the tumbling surf,
O’er the coral reefs of Madagascar,
Washes the feet of the swarthy Lascar,
As he lies alone and asleep on the turf.
And the trembling maiden held her breath
At the tales of that awful, pitiless sea,
With all its terror and mystery,
The dim, dark sea, so like unto Death,
That divides and yet unites mankind!
And whenever the old man paused, a gleam
From the bowl of his pipe would awhile illume
The silent group in the twilight gloom,
And thoughtful faces, as in a dream;
And for a moment one might mark
What had been hidden by the dark,

That the head of the maiden lay at rest,
Tenderly, on the young man’s breast!

Day by day the vessel grew,
With timbers fashioned strong and true,
Stemson and keelson and sternson-knee,
Till, framed with perfect symmetry,
A skeleton ship rose up to view!
And around the bows and along the side
The heavy hammers and mallets plied,
Till after many a week, at length,
Wonderful for form and strength,
Sublime in its enormous bulk,
Loomed aloft the shadowy hulk!
And around it columns of smoke, upwreathing,
Rose from the boiling, bubbling, seething
Caldron, that glowed,
And overflowed
With the black tar, heated for the sheathing.
And amid the clamors
Of clattering hammers,
He who listened heard now and then
The song of the Master and his men: —

“Build me straight, O worthy Master,
Staunch and strong, a goodly vessel,
That shall laugh at all disaster,
And with wave and whirlwind wrestle!”

With oaken brace and copper band,
Lay the rudder on the sand,
That, like a thought, should have control
Over the movement of the whole;
And near it the anchor, whose giant hand
Would reach down and grapple with the land,
And immovable and fast
Hold the great ship against the bellowing blast!
And at the bows an image stood,
By a cunning artist carved in wood,
With robes of white, that far behind
Seemed to be fluttering in the wind.
It was not shaped in a classic mould,
Not like a Nymph or Goddess of old,
Or Naiad rising from the water,
But modelled from the Master’s daughter!
On many a dreary and misty night,
‘T will be seen by the rays of the signal light,
Speeding along through the rain and the dark,
Like a ghost in its snow-white sark,
The pilot of some phantom bark,
Guiding the vessel, in its flight,
By a path none other knows aright!

Behold, at last,
Each tall and tapering mast
Is swung into its place;
Shrouds and stays
Holding it firm and fast!

Long ago,
In the deer-haunted forests of Maine,
When upon mountain and plain
Lay the snow,
They fell, — those lordly pines!
Those grand, majestic pines!
‘Mid shouts and cheers
The jaded steers,
Panting beneath the goad,
Dragged down the weary, winding road
Those captive kings so straight and tall,
To be shorn of their streaming hair,
And naked and bare,
To feel the stress and the strain
Of the wind and the reeling main,
Whose roar
Would remind them forevermore
Of their native forests they should not see again.
And everywhere
The slender, graceful spars
Poise aloft in the air,
And at the mast-head,
White, blue, and red,
A flag unrolls the stripes and stars.
Ah! when the wanderer, lonely, friendless,
In foreign harbors shall behold
That flag unrolled,
‘T will be as a friendly hand
Stretched out from his native land,
Filling his heart with memories sweet and endless!

All is finished! and at length
Has come the bridal day
Of beauty and of strength.
To-day the vessel shall be launched!
With fleecy clouds the sky is blanched,
And o’er the bay,
Slowly, in all his splendors dight,
The great sun rises to behold the sight.

The ocean old,
Centuries old,
Strong as youth, and as uncontrolled,
Paces restless to and fro,
Up and down the sands of gold.
His beating heart is not at rest;
And far and wide,
With ceaseless flow,
His beard of snow
Heaves with the heaving of his breast.
He waits impatient for his bride.
There she stands,
With her foot upon the sands,
Decked with flags and streamers gay,
In honor of her marriage day,
Her snow-white signals fluttering, blending,
Round her like a veil descending,
Ready to be
The bride of the gray old sea.

On the deck another bride
Is standing by her lover’s side.
Shadows from the flags and shrouds,
Like the shadows cast by clouds,
Broken by many a sunny fleck,
Fall around them on the deck.

The prayer is said,
The service read,
The joyous bridegroom bows his head;
And in tears the good old Master
Shakes the brown hand of his son,
Kisses his daughter’s glowing cheek
In silence, for he cannot speak,
And ever faster
Down his own the tears begin to run.
The worthy pastor —
The shepherd of that wandering flock,
That has the ocean for its wold,
That has the vessel for its fold,
Leaping ever from rock to rock —
Spake, with accents mild and clear,
Words of warning, words of cheer,
But tedious to the bridegroom’s ear.
He knew the chart
Of the sailor’s heart,
All its pleasures and its griefs,
All its shallows and rocky reefs,
All those secret currents, that flow
With such resistless undertow,
And lift and drift, with terrible force,
The will from its moorings and its course.
Therefore he spake, and thus said he: —

“Like unto ships far off at sea,
Outward or homeward bound, are we.
Before, behind, and all around,
Floats and swings the horizon’s bound,
Seems at its distant rim to rise
And climb the crystal wall of the skies,
And then again to turn and sink,
As if we could slide from its outer brink.
Ah! it is not the sea,
It is not the sea that sinks and shelves,
But ourselves
That rock and rise
With endless and uneasy motion,
Now touching the very skies,
Now sinking into the depths of ocean.
Ah! if our souls but poise and swing
Like the compass in its brazen ring,
Ever level and ever true
To the toil and the task we have to do,
We shall sail securely, and safely reach
The Fortunate Isles, on whose shining beach
The sights we see, and the sounds we hear,
Will be those of joy and not of fear!”

Then the Master,
With a gesture of command,
Waved his hand;
And at the word,
Loud and sudden there was heard,
All around them and below,
The sound of hammers, blow on blow,
Knocking away the shores and spurs.
And see! she stirs!
She starts, — she moves, — she seems to feel
The thrill of life along her keel,
And, spurning with her foot the ground,
With one exulting, joyous bound,
She leaps into the ocean’s arms!

And lo! from the assembled crowd
There rose a shout, prolonged and loud,
That to the ocean seemed to say,
“Take her, O bridegroom, old and gray,
Take her to thy protecting arms,
With all her youth and all her charms!”

How beautiful she is! How fair
She lies within those arms, that press
Her form with many a soft caress
Of tenderness and watchful care!
Sail forth into the sea, O ship!
Through wind and wave, right onward steer!
The moistened eye, the trembling lip,
Are not the signs of doubt or fear.
Sail forth into the sea of life,
O gentle, loving, trusting wife,
And safe from all adversity
Upon the bosom of that sea
Thy comings and thy goings be!
For gentleness and love and trust
Prevail o’er angry wave and gust;
And in the wreck of noble lives
Something immortal still survives!

Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State!
Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
Humanity with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what Master laid thy keel,
What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, and sail, and rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what a forge and what a heat
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
‘T is of the wave and not the rock;
‘T is but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest’s roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee,
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears,
Our faith triumphant o’er our fears,
Are all with thee, — are all with thee!

Our Sublime Covenant with God

Ohhh God,

Please hear our prayer and save our Country.

Because we are on the fringes of eternity and perhaps you would grant my wish that our time is not just yet…

We beseech you because we are well aware that without You there is not life.

And we all now deep within that just as our sailboats need the wind to ply the seas, so us humans need the word of the spirit to direct us, and the breath of God to live.

Yet, in today’s America we tend to forget that the only reason why we are alive having vanquished our enemies — is because we have a Covenant with our Good Lord that grants our wish that we truly are his own children…

That we absolutely need the breath of God to live goes without saying, but that the sublime prayer is our oxygen that keeps us alive, tends to be forgotten in the hustle.

Yet…

We know that we are the modern chosen people — and still we need to constantly be reminded of that because we forget and fall into awful sin and debauchery becoming part of the animal word and the landscape of terror of the uninformed life the atheists, the agnostics and the muslim infidels occupy.

But to save ourselves form that — we need never to forget the word of God.

Pray and remember God much.

And work it into your mind that the intercession to God never works unless the personal appeal precedes it…

This Godly communication is direct and our inner voice praying brings about the sublime miracle of granting life and healing.

Surely all the trappings of church and faith, such as visual sermons are useful as operatic and hugely dramatic spiritual reminders of mystical and ecstatic moments of the human journey to ascend into the Heavens…

But the cross of the redeemer is one of these visual sermons that is most vivid when covering our hearts.

Passionate statements about how Humanity exists and can be redeemed through its encounter with Nature, are also God’s reminders in an auditory sermon, that allows for an opening in the sky for our prayers to reach the heavens.

Homely and familiar is what we bring to the spirit in our dramatic theater of Life.

The tension between being human and divine, as Lord Jesus places his redemptive blessings upon us to miraculously heal us from the sin of death.

A prayer answered – A prayer asked for — A prayer from his cherished chosen people to Thank him for his intervention in our life.

A prayer that is none other than a grateful thanks that gives us his breath to animate our spirit, and take us to the heavens up above.

This is both our drama and our hope.

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

May now we be granted peace…

For a New Republic

Given the social state of division that is emerging today in our Republic — I believe that a new political definition of our Democratic Constitutional Republic is needed in America today.

I know that it is a tall order, but we must embark on this process willingly and whole heartedly, even if only in order to reanimate our Republic’s beliefs, to purify its motives, to regulate its movements, to substitute the bureaucracy of political government affairs, with the knowledge of this Republic’s true instincts, instead of its blind instincts, and in total honesty — to bring our divided “national self” together again.

We need to adapt this New Republic as an ideal for a democratic government to fit our current time and place in history. Mainly because we need to modify our institutions according to the present circumstances and the present persons that are exercising this form of self governance. Primarily we need to reassert our men and women, on the orders of the day, because such is the first duty imposed upon those who direct society in our day.

The very reason why republican representative democracy has succeeded in the United States while failing in so many other places, is the careful and considerate Constitutionally based application of the basic functional aspects of our indirect democracy. This is the whole sum of the miracle of this experiment in self governance, in these United States.

Yet, it is all a rather fine balance, because the future of the American Republic’s survival is choke-full of threats to our democracy from without, and many probable dangers of collapse from within. And all the most credible threat are centered around the belief that our democracy has a tendency to degenerate into “soft despotism” as well as pure “totalitarianism” from the Big Government complex of our tendency to dismiss the risks of developing a tyranny of the so-called majority.

And as we observe the tug of war between the two major parties, and also the strong role that religion plays in the United States, due to its separation from the government — we cannot help but wonder if those two main parties have supplanted religion as the divisive force that becomes the evil of theocracy. A blood sport indeed, because the much needed separation, that all parties and almost all political factions up to now, have found agreeable, is limited to the stand-off between church and state and is not included in the much more corrosive relationship between the “Big Government State” and the political parties. That is the most dangerous point of inflection in our Republic, except the cult of Muslim jihadists and their Islamic adherents who see the institution of total Sharia law as the only acceptable outcome of their participation in Society. In that evil tiding, they are of course joined by their natural allies, the extreme fringe of the Socialists and the Communists who espouse the dictatorship of the proletariat, and advocate for the forced convergence of our classically liberal capitalist society, to an institutional equality for all. Basically a big prison to house all voices. Indeed these are the two main minorities that seem to admire the industrialization of human beings, and want to institute fascism in order to force the reduction of people, into cog-wheels of the machine instead of human beings. Of course all of these approaches are antithetical to the United States Constitution and must be rejected out of hand, yet they have sadly gained plenty of traction amongst the know-nothing young adherents from the stoner society, and amongst the young children of the bourgeoisie who are masquerading as AntiFa black shirts, and as Hitler’s national socialist brownshirts…

And it seems that the unhealthy antagonism between democrats and the republicans, which relates to the excesses of passion for equality among men, women, and undecided, versus the ideas of individuality as supported by the natural order of variable specimens of humanity, and as found everywhere in nature amongst all the species that are divided in two sexes — foreshadows the balkanization and the totalitarian expressions of the various hate-filled divisions and the rancorous intersectionality promoted by the Democrat as well as by the Republican party of the twenty-first century.

And they both do it, only because they want to keep their flocks of sheeple separate, if they are to reduce their losses to the Free Thinking Independents that occupy the middle ground of the debate, and constitute the vast majority of American people.

Any careful analysis of the politics of our society would bear me out, and also the description of civil society as a sphere of private and civilian affairs that mirror the social paradox of social frustration increasing as social, political & economic conditions improve. Indeed the growing hatred of social, political and monetary privilege, increases in quantifiable ways, as social conditions improve. This in turn leads to the state concentrating more power to itself and the federal government and it’s debt increasing rapidly as well…

Our experiment with democracy in America is still fresh and full of the political acrimony over the abolition of slavery that tore asunder the fabric that held the United States together and led to the first American Civil War. And because the Democratic party always sought control as they were back then, the party of the plantation slave owners of the South, they carried the grudge of the South’s loss in their lust for power to this day. And this has led to today’s polarizing rivalry between the two parties, which has indeed exploded after the Civil War, hoping to litigate their differences in a nasty process of hateful violence that might well lead to another civil war that might have a different outcome or not.

Otherwise a democracy’s equality of conditions, justice and the pursuit of the American Dream, has resulted in some unfavorable consequences, such as the tyranny of the majority MSM media bias over “thought” and the preoccupation with Political Correctness, and the pursuit of material goods, along with the constant effect of isolation and alienation for individuals, who are independent of the majority opinions and refuse to think alike the masses.

Over the previous years the social and economic conditions of most Americans had slowly become more equal and the vast effort at industrialization helped i that respect to maintain the American dream as a gateway to all Americans to join the living standards of the old aristocracy. Yet today as the divisions disappear and as the modern world experienced the beneficial effects of equality — we also have the new moneyed elites, mainly bankers, digital industrialists, and others, that have retracted the development of equality. This has given rise to a number of emerging social strata.

Today’s social strata is not part of the firmly middle class Puritan Founding that established the U.S. democratic social state of equality, but rather it is a newer invention. Mind you the early settler and the founders are egalitarian because they arrived as equals in wealth, in education, and in skillsets, since they were all mostly middle class co-religionists from the old Blightey. In addition, they contributed a synthesis of religion and political liberty in America that was the “seed” of the Federal Constitution, which established the principle of sovereignty of the people in the Fundamental principles contained within the articles and the amendments, simply because this was not found in old England and they craved more Liberty and more Democracy than what they had left behind…

The aftermath of the American Revolution popularized these principles, first seen in the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which developed the institutions that will join the states as well as federally govern and manage the national popular will. While the U.S. Constitution enshrines Liberty at its core — the Athenian Democracy, the Christian Bible, the English mores of the Mother of All Parliaments, the Habeas Corpus, and the Magna Carta, along with the Democratic “habits of mind” of the American people — also play a very prominent role in the protection of freedom in these shores of the New World.

And so today, in light of all that — I’m writing to you, because we are at the throes of a new Civil War, and before we embark on bloody carnage No2 maybe we should recognize that we need to cool our jets and make peace with each other. And since it seems to anyone looking that mostly it is all the conservatives that have been treated shabbily by the mass media, who are trying hard to convince everybody that the vast majority of conservatives are evil — we need to counter that nasty narrative.

Screen Shot 2018-09-24 at 4.34.59 AM

Because you already know that Conservatives, like any other population group, are simply everyday people who want to love & be loved, want to live and let live, and hope that we will all get along.

And yet, every day the poor conservatives hear a steady drumbeat of truly disturbing allegations, from the media which presents all American conservatives as uneducated, jealous, racist, war-mongering, women-hating, gay-bashing, immigrant-despising, evil bigots and deplorable, or despicable hilly-billies… But the truth is, they’re nothing like what’s being portrayed by the folks on the MSM and by all the political leaders on the Left, because first, they are not uneducated hillbillies, and instead most are well educated thoughtful people who’ve read and have a certain functional understanding of many the principles of Liberty & Democracy, through the writings of John Locke, Adam Smith, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Friedrich Hayek, Ludwig von Mises, Milton Friedman, Robert Nozick and John Rawls.

And contrary to popular leftist Democrat belief, conservatives aren’t single-issue voters nor are they governed by prejudice or any sort of extremism. As a matter of fact, they think about the same issues you do, but they think of them in terms of how they affect families, neighbors, country, the Constitution, the next generations, and only then, the rest of the world.

And while Conservatives, love American society, that doesn’t mean they can’t look at the rest of the world with interest, wonder, appreciation and pity. They actually love to travel, and go on far more trips aboard than the leftists do. They engage by going on international field of mission trips, and they send long-term missionaries to all corners of this earth. Conservatives do a lot of business overseas and they send help and aid to the poor folks outside the U.S. constantly. As a matter of fact Conservative philanthropy extending outside the US is almost five times as much, as that donated by those identifying as Democrats. And because they value the contributions we all make to the world and they also see that what makes America unique in a different way of living, they value things outside of America too. But they love our country and value it’s contribution to the world stage, because they truly see Americans as the saviors of the world.

A pretty big claim, right?

Well, Christian Conservatives think in grand terms, because they know that classical liberals, in the old sense of liberty, individual rights, free speech, self-determination, representative democracy, and constitutionally protected rights — all came from the United States to the rest of the world today because we are this benevolent empire, that likes to share, and this we must accept as our destiny to lead, and as our Exceptionalism — whether we like it or not.

Free enterprise capitalism, is the system all Americans like because it has reduced global poverty in the last 50 years far more so than anything human beings have done in the last 2,000 combined. This free enterprise capitalism married with the system of classical liberal democracy here in our country is the winning lotto, for all of our citizens and we best aim to protect it’s winning streak.

Also the only true religious freedom came from these shores as well as all of the innovations that have revolutionized the world — internet, satellites, space exploration, biotech, bioengineering, and even the earlier ones, like the repeating rifles, the cotton gins, the telegraph, the telephone, the light bulbs, the automobiles, the airplanes, the rocket-ships, and the microchips — they all came from here. And when tyranny threatened the globe not once, not twice, but three times, salvation came from here too.

But as wholesome Americans and conservatives to boot — we’re not blind to America’s problems either. We strive to get better each and every day, because we all know the country’s not there yet, even if we’re not sure where the “there-there” is.

And of course, Christians and Conservatives hate it that America has gotten things wrong in the past, and slavery is never far from any of our minds. But those problems don’t keep us from greatly loving our country on balance. We know America has done immeasurable good and that the world is better off with her leading at pole position, than without her.
And all conservatives are pro-woman and never want to marginalize women, because on the contrary, they value women, but the way they value women looks different from the way leftists value them. Treating them differently from men is a sign of honor, not disrespect. We all think it’s fine for women to work if they want, but we also know the woman’s role as mother in the family is irreplaceable from either a creationist or evolutionist point of view.

We believe in traditional gender and sexual roles, again, whether you ask creation or evolution, those roles are what we seem to have been dealt, and all conservatives and Christians, are very, very cautious when it comes to modifying the natural order. Seems to me that in any field other than sex, all Americans seem to applaud that idea.

But being cautious doesn’t mean to hate gays or transexuals. What the conservative Christians hate is the sensation of being forced to accept an idea solely because someone else values that idea. I know very few conservatives who dislike gays as people. I know a great many, however, who intensely dislike the pressure society is under not just to accept gay people but to approve of everything they do as well. None of us approve of everything our own fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, sons, or daughters do. Why would we then, ask or even avail ourselves to afford other people’s infinite approval when even our own families don’t get that?

And of course, conservative Americans don’t despise immigrants, foreigners, or other countries. From what I see, conservatives actually love seeing new people come to America if they come legally, and they love America and also if they want to live in this country as Americans.

And you would have to admit that this is not wrong. Because we’ve put a lot of work as a People into this society, and we’d like to see it augmented and perpetuated, and if not, we would at least like to see it preserved.

Important to note that conservatives also don’t hate minorities. It really saddens me that even needs to be said. Yet sadly, it does…

Think about that for a second.

How many of your neighbors are conservatives?

Or work associates?

Or family members?

Do you really think that conservatives go home at night, discard the suits and dresses, and the rest of their civilized facades, and then don hoods, so they can go out to find others and talk about how much they despise people just because their skin is different color from theirs?

Do you really think that?

Screen Shot 2018-10-25 at 11.21.53 AM

Please tell me you don’t, and please hear me when I say conservatives aren’t those people. Sure those people exist, but they don’t hide their racism, and they don’t find any quarter within civilized conservative society or inside any churches on American today.

We used to call these people Ku-Klux-Klan and we used to run them out of our towns as soon as we find them, and we seem to remember that it was the Democratic party that founded that organization to control the so called “Blacks” that the Conservatives had liberated from the Southern Democrat plantations during the Civil War. And now the Dems seem to want to re-litigate this Civil War for version 2.0 of the same old bloodshed. But as far as I’ve seen from my perch in America, conservatives actually don’t have much of an opinion at all about individuals, regardless of race or religion. Yet the Democrats and the Left have a judgmental opinion about everyone else, especially about those that are different than them, and about the Independent thinkers.

But there are things that raise the conservative hackles too.
And what they do view very suspiciously is the process of Society’s balkanization at the hands of the Left and the Democrats. That is the process of the grouping of individuals based on unique traits, including racial traits, and sexual choices, and then pitting those groups against each other. And that suspicion turns to downright hostility if those balkanized groups are then galvanized with rhetoric that is divisive and downright dangerous to fundamental American and Western values, whether it’s inter-sectionalism, transgenderism, black nationalism, white nationalism, Marxism, Islamism, gayderism, or transnationalism.

And this is where so many conservatives are genuinely misunderstood as bigots, because although they couldn’t care less what color, religion, or sexual orientation anyone else is — they care deeply that all those who self identify as “other” also support the basic American values such as freedom, the centrality of the individual, the worth of every man, the rule of law, equality under the law, rugged individualism, capitalism, freedom of speech and the press, religious freedom, government subject to the people, and common decency — that ultimately define all of us as Americans.

And many conservatives like Donald Trump, because they actually have good reasons for liking him. When people look at Trump they see someone who’s actually a winner and “rough metaphor” of the personification of the American dream we all love and want to live in. Because of course he is coarse, simple, strong, speaks the warrior language, and he is proud of what his country has historically stood for. Trump also puts the American people’s interests first, and refuses to back down to threats, as he always tries to solve problems with diplomacy before war. There are many examples of all of these personality traits of Donald Trump, but you really already know that, and one can only wish that you’d think about those reasons honestly before you dismiss them out of hand.

Christian conservatives see in Trump an effective leader because he’s getting done what people always wanted done. Rebuilt our Economy. Focus on regulatory rollbacks that make entrepreneurship the lifeblood of American easy again. Provide honest federal judgeships. Take strong stands against currency manipulation from our friends, our frenemies and our trading partners. Destroy and re-negotiate all lopsided trade deals. Secure America’s borders, and repeat ad infinitum, his passionate pursuit of pro-business policies.

No conservative sees in Trump someone who’s racist. As far as anyone can tell and certainly as far as anyone said before 2016, he has always been racially agnostic. In Trump no conservative or Christian sees a bigot. Instead we see a man who has been extremely pro-gay rights, and who doesn’t hate trans people, although he does believe in using biological terms to officially describe people — hardly a position worthy of controversy. Indeed in the face of our Commander In Chief, we simply don’t see a sex criminal, but a strong family man who enjoyed the company of women as a serial monogamist.

Of course one can also see, a man who’s made some pretty terrible moral decisions regarding sex in the past, but who hasn’t done that and been there? And from everything everyone has said, those decisions were all fully consensual and libertarian. He never forced women to let him grab them. He said women let him do it because this is what this type of women (Hollywood vixens) do with famous people… There’s an enormous difference. And we all know this type of women, so there is no big thing “there-there” when you talk about hoes, hookers, pole dancers, starlets, playboy strippers, or porn stars with an enormous “treasure chest.”

As for the popular lullaby of “Russia-Russia” conservatives don’t see a Russian stooge in our President, but instead see the hoax and the conspiracy theory run amok, by a sworn Democrat acting as special prosecutor, perpetuating a witch hunt. As a matter of fact, in the eyes of our President, we see a man with far too much personal pride and yes, a great deal of arrogance and a whole lot of distaste for his opponent the crooked Hillary, who paid for that opposition research that came to be called the salacious “Trump Russia dossier” that started this whole thing and keeps bedeviling our Republic plunging all of us into the second Civil War.

Screen Shot 2018-10-30 at 2.33.55 AM

Trump is strong and that makes it rather improbable and perhaps impossible for him to be anyone’s stooge, and we further see someone who’s beating Moscow into the ground, intentionally and repeatedly on the international and national scene, every chance he gets.

Finally, nobody sees someone who’s mentally unstable at all. We know he’s got a temper. We know he abhors disrespect and disloyalty. We also know he makes incredibly strategic decisions on everything from how he handles international policy (NK, Iran, NAFTA) to the manipulation of a hostile media. By our lights, there’s zero evidence of his being mentally unstable in the sense he’s accused of. Mercurial, yes. Unstable, no.

I could go on and on. The point here is that while leftist Democrats have counterpoints to everything Conservatives examine here, still they desperately wish that the Liberals of today and their leftist adherents, would at least consider the fact that all others including the Independents, have their own legitimate reasons to believe what they do, and that they are not evil because of that.

There are currently more than a few hundred threats against President Trump going live on Twitter this very minute as I type this. And according to Mashable, one month after being sworn in, Trump faced 12,000 assassination tweets. Maybe that is why conservatives are now used to being careful and well armed, when they are constantly attacked and told to go crawl in a hole and die.

That started out as baffling to me too because after all, if what I wrote above described you and a bunch of people wanted you to die just for thinking those things, wouldn’t you be a little confused too?

But over time that bafflement has transformed into defensiveness and is now giving way to deep-seated anger over the hatred directed at us because of the simple values we hold.

What’s happening can’t continue. You can’t keep allowing your fellow AntiFa leftists to beat us up, and the MSM to say that those who disagree with them are the embodiment of evil, and the local leftist police to stand down and not arrest the perpetrators of that violence.

You cannot evade the repercussions of your actions for ever, and assuming that we will survive as a Republic, at some point you will be arrested and tried for your crimes.

And again, you cannot demonize and dehumanize those who think differently than you, because that’s the very definition of stupid. But you cannot do that also because we are not evil, and also because some desperate, mentally ill person on your side will believe that, and do something that makes shooting up a synagogue look like Mickey Mouse using a pea shooter and a water pistol at a party.

Conservatives can’t let those accusations get to them or goad them into responding physically, because some “conspiracy nut” will do something a lot worse than sending pitifully made “plastic bombs” to prominent liberals to provoke pity and sympathy for their cause.

As you might recall — it only took a snowball fight to spark the Boston Massacre in 1770.

Methinks that it pays to try to avoid that bloody massacre from occurring again.

But to do that we have to stop this hateful rhetoric now, and if your leaders carry on speaking like that — you have to question both their leadership capacity and the state of their mental health.

For starters, every time you hear someone in the media attack Conservatives, Christians, the sublime deplorables, or those others who voted for Trump, or the libertarian supporters who mistrust the big government, or even the regular independents thinkers like me — stop for just a second and try to remember that all of us are plainly decent people, and that these Ad-Hominem attacks target good, decent, loving people that are your neighbors and colleagues and you might know them personally.

And the personal connection will bring a fresh air of civility to your mental interior discussion, and a sense of abhorrence, when Hillary Clinton says that the conservative supporters of Donald Trump  belong in a “basket of deplorables” and that they hold “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic” views. Indeed this statement came to become a singularly descriptive statement about her, and about her supporters, because she persisted saying: “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton said: “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.” She kept digging her own grave by saying that the other half of Trump’s supporters: “feel that the government has let them down” and are “desperate for change.”

Yet you are smarter than that, and you can distinguish the wheat from the chaff, so that you can now start thinking of the Conservatives and the Christians as different versions of yourself, and as the regular folks living across from your home, or even down the street from your house, or working in the next cubicle, or even sitting across the table with your family sharing a Thanksgiving meal — and then maybe you see them as simple humans and you stop demonizing them, and then suddenly you find yourself being unable to call them by those choice names of deplorables and sexists.

Do this and see if you can find the thinking and quiet space over Thanksgiving holiday to speak about all and sundry, and speak about anything else exclusive of politics. Please avoid talking politics over Thanksgiving so that we can give ourselves the time and space to heal and reflect, because all that divides us is rhetoric. And in these times of trials and tribulations, we need to find all that which unites us.

And by refraining from the steady crammed diet of 24/7/365 awful and hateful news on the MSM and all the channels of TV, we might regain control of our brains. And if we stay away from the political rhetoric we may also win a measure of Liberty from Hate, and the Pain that goes with it. Because if we do that, we might find a way to make this awful person Hillary who fully expected to divide the American people by hurling insults — go away for good and melt away like the bad witch riding her broom in the rain.

And for your mental health, I was hoping that some of the people who were going to either be offended by Hillary, or those who were going to go vote for her — all shall get schooled soon enough. Because these epithets she hurled against all Americans, came back like boomerangs to bang her on her empty noggin.

But to be sure, if any of your close relatives and close friends are found to be a bit conservative — I invite you to think and examine if these people match all that crap that you’ve been told by the mass media against them. And then consider the reason that these people were offended by crooked Hillary, after hearing her comments and her insults hurled against all conservatives, and realized that there was a really good reason that they didn’t vote for her.

And now go further and ask yourself this: Do these folks truly match what you yourself are telling other people about conservatives?

Do that and see how quickly you’ll arrive at the truth.

So instead of using dehumanizing rhetoric to turn President Trump and all Conservatives inane Independents into some kind of boogeymen, why don’t you stop demonizing everyone else but yourself and your faulty leaders, and instead choose to stand with other Americans and fight alongside them, in order to better our country?

God knows, we have enough enemies all around — isn’t it time to get together?

Indeed this is the only solution.

And it would be much better for our country as a whole, today and tomorrow to accept that we need various voices and opposing opinions to support our argumentative democracy, instead of only one accepted point of view.

And this is what America means for me.

This messy argumentative Republic full of opinionated people is what I like about our country, but I also like the way that we know how to pull together and help each other, to make progress for all of us, and also manage to find some succor for our compassionate hearts.

Because love goes a long way and although we all know that magnanimity is the way to a Man’s heart — this is easier said than done. As for now we need to remove the fear and to heal the hatred and the divisions, that threaten to tear us apart.

And although we all hear people saying that all politicians are liars and haters, and we have a sense of that being the case many times — we also have decent ones that stood the test of time and have done the best that they see fit.

We all hear the harpies telling us that corporations are greedy and the system is rigged agains the little guy, and we =know that to be true sometimes, yet most of the time it isn’t true. And if you feel compelled to believe all the negative stuff, then you have bigger problems to solve with your therapist than the political incivility that your mama Hillary ushered in…

But what America is to me is that we can say all these things and remain free & unmolested by the secret police, because our Republic allows us the voice of reason and sometimes the voice of treason too…

But to be able to question and argue and challenge the Status Quo; this is uniquely American way, and I wouldn’t trade it with anything else, because here we can make up our own minds in an unwritten social contract that says that when only one official “truth” prevails — everything is broken.

And when we start saying that one leader is a monster and that other person is our savior — we are on the road that’s called Tyranny.

And that would be a real pity for all of us…

Yours,

Dr Churchill

PS:

Methinks that if we stick together, we can do well in this country together, but we need to work together to accomplish this, because if that doesn’t happen, the streets will eventually run red with blood, and your hands will be the cause of that bloodshed in another Civil War that will make the old one look like children’s play…

And nothing could be less American than that.

So because of all that and because our Nation has been going down on a rather dangerous path since I was seriously wounded by a would-be assassin in 2017 who identified with the Antifa terrorists — from today and going forward — I am committed to using my voice to speak out against this hate and division that threatens to tear our country apart.
