Foolishness? Wishful Thinking? US Government
Foolishness? Wishful Thinking? US Government "False Flag" to keep pesky patriots occupied? Something even more sinister?

Before we dig into the “Q” phenomenon, let’s define some terms:

  • QUACK: Obviously, the usual sound that a duck makes; but in this context, the derisive term aimed at a member of a profession, such as an attorney or, most often, a doctor, when it is discovered that said “professional” was never trained in that discipline but has been practicing it for a long time, many times injuring his/her victims either financially or medically, or both;
  • QUISLING: A traitor who collaborates with an enemy force occupying one’s country. Named after Vidkun Quisling, a Norwegian army officer who founded Norway’s Fascist Party in 1933. He met with Adolph Hitler in December 1939 and urged him to invade and occupy Norway, which Hitler did in April, 1940.  Quisling served as the puppet or figurehead President of Norway for the Nazis from 1940 to 1945.  After Norway’s liberation in 1945, Quisling was executed for treason;
  • CONSPIRACY THEORY: Something that is believed by either a small or large group of people, sometimes true and sometimes not true, and usually called “silly” or “ridiculous” by those at whom the “facts” are aimed, and which are usually put forth to try to explain the “true story” behind a particular real world event or an unfavorable shift in the culture of a nation or nations.

Before I begin this plunge into the heart of liberal dogma, let me state for the record that I am not against a degree of legal, restricted, and needful immigration.  The vast majority of Americans living today had ancestors who emigrated from some other country and into the U.S. in the past.  I am one of them, for both my maternal grandfather and grandmother came, LEGALLY, from the country of Croatia early in the 20th century, and I’m grateful that they did.  America has been peopled by, and generally benefitted from, immigrants who came here from mostly European countries (with some exceptions) over much of the 19th and early 20th centuries.  Except for some of the immigrants from Oriental nations, these European immigrants usually assimilated quickly, or at least their children did, and most became naturalized, proud and useful Americans, the vast majority of whom contributed much more to our nation that they took from it.  Unfortunately, the same cannot honestly be claimed in regards to the disparate dregs of humanity who, legally or mostly otherwise, are entering our nation today.

“And he said, Hearken ye all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem,  and thou, King Jehoshaphat:  Thus saith the Lord unto you, Fear you not, neither be afraid for this great multitude:  FOR THE BATTLE IS NOT YOURS, BUT GOD’S.”  (2nd Chronicles 20:15-17: 1599 Geneva Bible).

Who You Will Serve?
Who Will You Serve?

For those who are unaware, the 1599 Geneva Bible was the Bible used by our separatist Pilgrim Forefathers (they didn’t like the KJV because they really didn’t like King James, who had vowed to “harry them out of the land” of England because they would not conform to the teachings of the Church of England).  Certainly it was read and preached from during the hazardous and tedious 66-day voyage from England to the New World during that increasingly stormy and  harsh Fall on the Atlantic Ocean in 1620.  Fierce storms and huge waves and wretched living conditions below decks would have turned most modern people back from whence they came.  Not so for these 102 stalwart souls who had determined to separate from their old world and, trusting God for guidance and protection, build a new and religiously separate colony in the wilderness of North America.

Freedom is never without cost.
Freedom is never without cost.

As Americans, we all should know that the cost of maintaining our freedoms—the liberties for which untold numbers of Americans have given their “last full measure of devotion” to defend, is always high and likely to get even more costly in the years ahead, as the powerful forces of collectivist tyranny clash, verbally or otherwise, with the forces of American Patriots determined to RESIST the diabolical agendas of those Marxist devils who are determined that they will prevail over us. 

I’d like to share a touching poem written in 1981 by Kelly Strong:

FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

“I watched the flag pass by one day, it fluttered in the breeze.

A young Marine saluted it, and then he stood at ease.

Back in the days when I could move my legs and arms without joint pain, and before the force of gravity became much “stronger”, I used to do a lot of hiking in the North and South Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains with my kids and their friends, or with our adult friends.  Finding the correct path in the high country, surrounded by rocks and trees, and often cloud cover, was very important.  We all loved “the high country” and we spent many wonderful weekends or parts of vacation weeks exploring well-known, and some not so well known, great views and landmarks in “our” mountains.  In every case, having trail maps and using good observation and common sense made our hikes both enjoyable and safe.  Following the right path made ALL the difference.

The original version of this moving story seems to have originated from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and was sent from that site to a long-time friend of mine several years ago, and then from him to me.  I’ve changed it in minor ways, here and there, but the original story is not mine. It was titled: “TAKE MY SON”

“And a voice from Heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased”   Matthew 3:17

A wealthy FATHER and his SON loved to collect rare works of art.  They had everything in their expensive collection, from Picasso to Raphael to Da Vinci. All very old and very valuable. They would often sit together and admire the great works of art THE FATHER owned.  When the Vietnam War broke out, THE SON left his FATHER and joined the military and went to war.  He was very courageous, but tragically he died in battle while saving the life of another soldier.  THE FATHER was notified and grieved deeply over the death of his ONLY SON.

U.S. CONSTITUTION—ARTICLE V1—CLAUSE 2:

“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof, and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THE UNITED STATES, shall be the supreme law of the Land, and the Judges in every State shall be BOUND THEREBY, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary, notwithstanding.”  (Emphasis  mine—whl).

There’s an old “tool” hidden in the above Clause 2 of   Article V1—IT’S A POWERFUL TOOL CALLED NULLIFICATION!  It doesn’t require another amendment to our constitution.  It sure doesn’t require some long, drawn out, very controversial, and DANGEROUS, constitutional convention triggered by Article V and its gullible “Convention of States” crowd.  The principle of “nullification” that our State lawmakers could---and must---use to enforce our constitution has always been there, incorporated in that document from the beginning by our very wise Framers.

The “Convention of States” proponents, headed by Mark Meckler, constantly reassure the doubters and the skeptics (of which I am one) that their COS would be strictly “limited to proposing amendments related to the listed topics”.  In actuality, however, that is their usual “soothing syrup” spread over the gullible among their followers and the uneducated amongst the population, because any constitutional convention (and their COS IS a CON CON) could, and conceivably would, result in a RUNAWAY CONVENTION that could reverse or eliminate any number of our current constitution’s limitations on the power of the federal government (at least the way our Founders intended—not that the criminals and buffoons in Congress pay much attention to our constitution any more) and its interference in the lives of the American people.  Sad to say, but a new CON CON/COS could actually accomplish the SAME goals that many of its advocates claim to be fighting against.

In this long and ongoing discussion regarding the merits or demerits of our state legislatures submitting applications to Congress ordering that body to call for a new Article V Constitutional Convention, we must again reiterate that there are many genuine American patriots in the ranks of that movement, and more than a few scoundrels.  Several well-known and well-respected conservative leaders have endorsed this proposal as the only way to “save” our nation from its very long addiction to spending far more money than it ever takes in in the form of tariffs, taxes, fines, fees, etc.  Large numbers of everyday Americans have also endorsed this call for a new CON-CON, or as its leading advocate, Mark Meckler, calls it—a “Convention of States”.  Just within the past few weeks, a well-respected talk show host on the Upstate’s most popular talk radio station hosted a short discussion on the subject of a “Convention of States”.  Mostly it was a one-sided PRO-COS discussion featuring a guest who is a strong proponent of this COS and who works for Jim DeMint who, we should know, is also strongly in favor of a CON-CON, or a COS as they love to call it, as though a COS is somehow “different” than an Article V CON-CON.  Well, it is NOT!  It’s the same thing deceptively wrapped in glittering ribbons—a wonderful present just waiting for the American people to unwrap and begin to enjoy living under the U.S. Constitution as our Founders wanted us to live.  Yeah, sure it is.  Unfortunately, the host of this radio show allowed very little “discussion” of this topic and cut short the arguments of the three or four callers who disagreed with his obvious pro-COS stand. Too bad—that show could have been a genuine learning experience, as it usually is.

ALERT:  Please be sure to read the URGENT-TAKE ACTION information at the end of this article. 

(Note:  I am indebted to one of the foremost constitutional scholars in our nation today, with her vast knowledge and her long struggle against the present dangers of calling for an Article V Constitutional Convention by CONGRESS, and for her determination to never give up—to keep on keeping on—to keep educating and fighting in this mad desire on the part of some of our fellow Americans to risk scrapping or amending out of existence the 1787 Constitution codified by dedicated patriots and sent down the halls of time to the present.  Her name is Joanna Martin, and she writes under the “pen name” of “Publius Huldah”. It is from her constant and patient education of this writer, me, over a long period of time that I draw the information and the inspiration to write about the possible dangers posed by a new CON CON.  Our Founders warned AGAINST ever calling another constitutional convention.  Joanna has long heeded their warnings, and has sent them out near and far—a modern-day ‘Paul Revere’ alerting her countrymen that there are those with “sinister motives” already among us, the COS “redcoats” are threatening, and that they have taken aim at our historic constitution.  Joanna is the MASTER, and I am her follower in this battle. In that, I am not alone.  Thank you, Joanna.  Now let us proceed.)

As we discovered in Parts 1 & 2 of this article, the Christian missionary named John Birch lived a short but incredibly dedicated and adventurous life.  Back in the 1930s, hundreds of faithful Christians from many denominations devoted part or all of their lives to missionary work in the large and chaotic country of China.  John Birch became a part of that dedicated band, and as soon as he was trained and prepared, he immediately went to where he knew that God wanted him to be.

Last time we discovered how Birch met Col. Jimmy Doolittle and several other flyers from the raid launched from USS Hornet on April 18, 1942.  John accompanied Doolittle and the others and led them to safety in unoccupied China.  He did the same (with the help of Chinese patriots and guerillas) for about 60 of the other Doolittle Raiders.  It was only a short time before Col. Jimmy Doolittle informed Maj. General Claire Chennault, Commander of the famed “Flying Tigers” (the AVG, or American Volunteer Group that existed from 1937 to 1942 in occupied China), of Birch’s heroics in leading his aircrews to safety.  Chennault was already a legend among the Free Chinese for the great success achieved by his “Flying Tigers”, the all-volunteer mercenary force who flew Curtiss P-40 Warhawks with shark mouths painted on their noses against superior Japanese aircraft and attacked enemy ground targets.

In Part 1 of this series I asked the question:  What impels a young man to embark on a life of missionary service to his LORD and Savior?  It became clear, during my research, that John Birch received his “calling” to be a missionary from his Savior, Jesus, and he received that calling at a young age.  He never turned back from serving his Savior, nor did he hesitate from going into harm’s way many times during that service.   John was characterized by Robert Welch as “a simple, but highly intelligent man, who worked hard to serve God, spread God’s Word, and fought for the freedom to do so.”  Many times during his wartime service, Birch longed for the day when he could farm his own land, marry and raise a family, and continue to serve God in his own way.

Captain John Morrison Birch (1918-1945) was also a Baptist pastor and missionary to China from 1940 until his murder in China on August 25, 1945. He probably was the first American killed by Chinese Communist soldiers right after the end of WWII.

No, this article is not about the John Birch Society, that great educational and patriotic, anti-communist, pro-Americanist organization that has been exposing the enemies of constitutional government and their despicable intrigues  in the U.S. for 63 years (and to which my wife and I have proudly belonged since 1963), resulting in merciless attacks against it and unmitigated falsehoods and endless lies told about it and its members, because THE MARXIST/PROGRESSIVE ENEMIES OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTIES FEAR THE TRUTH—THEY FEAR THE EXPOSURE OF THEIR ANTI-AMERICAN, ANTI-CONSTITUTION MACHINATIONS, AND THEY FEAR THE WRATH OF A TOTALLY INFORMED AMERICAN PEOPLE!  As Americans endure the deliberate collectivist corruption of the Marxists of the Biden Regime, that truth should be patently obvious!

Last time we explored the “specter” of ‘pure democracy’, a system of government greatly feared and derided by our Founding generation, yet the definition of which is poorly understood by Americans of all ages, especially those under 40.  It was not always so, because the wise men who crafted our 1787 Constitution knew the differences between democracies, republics, oligarchies, and monarchies, plus all of the freedom destroying or freedom enhancing variants of those forms of government.

THE TYRANNY OF DEMOCRACY

I began Part 1 of this series by quoting from a very interesting article from the blog: Center For Self Governance, written by Bill Norton and published in that blog on Jan. 23, 2017.  I resume quoting from Mr. Norton’s observations:

“We are witnessing the tyranny of democracy being played out during this current transition of power (at that time from President Obama to President Trump).  Refusal to accept the outcome of the (2016) election based on the popular vote; protests that lead to riots in the streets; boycotts and calling for the elimination of the Electoral College, are just a few symptoms of being conditioned to believe our form of government is a pure democracy. (Remember:  ‘pure democracy’=mob rule—whl).

What has always been (until recently) one of the most prominent characteristics of the Constitutional Republic given to us by our Founders?  It has been the more or less peaceful transition of governmental power from one presidential administration to the next—often from one political party to a different one. (different, at least, on paper).  That was what almost always separated us from the wild and mob dominated “politics” of other countries on this planet.  The U.S. has always experienced the ire of a disappointed electorate, caused by real or imagined vote “tampering” or deliberate miscounting of votes. But with the election of Donald Trump as our 45th President back in November, 2016, the “robe” of Presidential “investiture” began to be purposely unraveled in a tangle of lies, conspiracies, invectives, incriminations, and downright malevolence!  It has gone downhill quickly after that.

We’ve been hearing much of late from the senile presidential imposter who lives (at least part of the time) at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in the District of Criminals and Corruption.  One of his current favorite babbling points is his assurance to his subjects that he is going to go after all those “illegal firearms” that are wandering to and fro all over our nation, seeking whom they might maim and kill.  After all, he assures us in his best whispery, gravely voice, “the Second Amendment is not absolute”, nor does it protect rights of those pesky people who have the temerity to actually believe our increasingly ignored Constitution is still the law of the land, and it surely doesn’t give those gun-loving fanatics in our midst the right to buy any kind of commonly used firearms---especially those evil “AR-15 assault rifles” that are used only to kill large numbers of people (but which, of course, are NOT ‘assault rifles’ which are for the military only).   And, he assures us in his wise professorial voice, the “2nd Amendment surely didn’t give our colonial ancestors the right to go out and “buy cannons”.  Just listen to me, he orders, and I’ll keep you safe from those violent everyday citizens who insist on clinging to their guns (AND to their Bibles and their religions) in their neighborhoods.  And, he promises, I’ll use our national capital bureaucrats to assist in protecting ‘the people’ from those evil firearms—bureaucrats who. even now, are  digitizing millions of ILLEGALLY maintained firearm purchase records in preparation for a campaign of CONFISCATION, which with absolutely NO doubt is the goal of Comrade Biden and his fellow Bolsheviks!
