VVhat vve have going on in this country right now is a giant protection racket. Antifa and BLM are like the Mob coming into a neighborhood and telling you, “Nice little business you have here. VVouldn’t vvant anything to happen to it.” They’ll give “protection” by not torching it if you pay the price every month.
It does not surprise me (well, maybe a little) that so many Democrat officials prefer to become Mob bosses than protect the people they were elected to defend. In Seattle, Mayor Jenny Durkan was completely down with the mob – until they came after her house. Then she finally decided they needed to be shut down. See, the little folks don’t get any protection, but the big guys demand they be exempt from the violence their policies fuel. In Minneapolis, before voting unanimously to eliminate the police department, city council members also voted to provide themselves with robust private guards. VVhat did surprise me was how eagerly those elements of our society who have not visibly gone insane lined up to pay their protection money. Many Republican “leaders,” many religious leaders, and corporations galore are bending the knee before the left-wing fascists – and demanding that all of us do. A lot of corporations are doing an advertising boycott of Facebook unless it gets more draconian about censoring conservative and Christian thought.
If you have ever wondered how death camps, gulags, slavery and genocide could be mounted in otherwise seemingly civilized areas, just look around at all the people who should know better that are taking the knee and groveling. The screaming young illiterates, if this were 70 years ago, would be screaming on behalf of the Jim Crow system. These thugs are the spiritual heirs of segregationists Bull Connor and Lester Maddox, evil men who leveraged race-based claims of supremacy to secure their own power.
I will give the Mafia this: if you pay your protection money, they actually do leave you alone. The Mafia is more honorable than Antifa and BLM.
I am moving the national meeting back to September from August. I am planning for the weekend of September 12 and 13. The venue we had in Kansas changed the rules and we could only accommodate 45 people. I want room for 100-200, so I decided to look for places that were solely and privately owned, to prevent anyone pulling the rug out at the last minute. I have three places I am currently looking at. The owner of a Minor League Baseball Team generously offered the use of their stadium, but it is on a far coast so would be too far and hard to get to for many people for this initial meeting. It will be used at sometime, though, I can guarantee!
It also gives us more time to organize the flood of volunteers that have come in. The first month of getting a large organization up and running is dominated by getting the lists of names organized and getting people deployed so they can begin to operate effectively as a unit. I have divided the country into 15 regions, and each will have its own volunteer administration. Many have said they are not sure what they can do. Let me give you a few ideas. VVe will need:
- Centers that will handle data entry for volunteers
- Tradesmen such as brickmasons and carpenters
- Farmers and hunters
- Medical personnel
- Teachers and catechists
- Radio and other communications expertise
- Security personnel who can help people plan for community and self-defense
- Logistical expertise – folks who can find the seeds, tools and supplies people need.
- People who can plan logistics for a siege or other needs in case of attack.
- Legal experts who can defend activists so long as there is a vestige of law
- Folks who can organize protests and fun demonstrations
- Writers and designers who can make up pamphlets for distribution
- Priests, ministers and other religious.
I am already involved and associated with people who are going after these needs. The first month – until mid-August – involves identifying people and what their skills and interests are and getting them down in usable lists. The second month – until mid-September – involves deploying them in a structure that is close to home for them and provides coordination among all elements to accomplish more than any could alone. All planning and organizational meetings should start with prayer and contemplation of Scripture or other holy readings. I know some solid patriots are largely secular. No problem. They can either tolerate us or form their own group. VVe will relentlessly take the next right step UNDER GOD.
Meantime, I will give a public presentation on Sunday, July 26 from noon to five. Not to worry, I’m not going to drone on for five hours. The actual presentation will be around 40 minutes, laying out where we are, what the stakes are, and how we will proceed. (My tentative title for the talk is, “One of the Family.”) It will be at the Lincoln Theatre in Limon, Colorado (245 E Ave.), which is about an hour east of Denver off I-70. Lunch will be served after my talk – and then we will speak together about our course and the nation’s. I will have the talk taped – but if any who plan to attend are professional videographers, I would love to have you contact me about taping this more professionally. This will be a foundational talk and discussion. For more information, contact Mary Lapchak at email@example.com.
I am profoundly grateful for the generosity of so many of you. Your generosity has helped facilitate gaining the grant I seek to start things up. This is what we will use to secure venues, rent supplies, get the organization legally incorporated and get this thing off the ground. This is our runway, but we need a little more to achieve liftoff. If you have thought about donating, but haven’t yet, I ask you to get it done in the next 72 hours so we can put a good initial budget together.
The organization will be called the Corps of Renewal and Charity, or CORAC. My brother, Steve, came up with this prototype of a logo; an aviator jacket and glasses with a halo on top. Of course, on the final logo, the aviator jacket must sport a squirrel patch – maybe one of the little guys atop this article.
Last week, David Daleiden released video showing abortion officials admitting, under oath, that sometimes actual, undeniable infanticide is committed to harvest the organs from babies for resale. In his press release accompanying the video, Daleiden asked, “How long will public authorities permit Planned Parenthood and their associates to sell living children inside and outside the womb and then kill them through organ harvesting? The DOJ has vigorously prosecuted the sale of eagle body parts. Surely selling human body parts after cutting them out of an infant with a beating heart is at least as grave of a crime.”
In chatting with David a few days ago, he was a little down that this video has not received as much play as the one he released last month showing PP officials admitting under oath to selling baby body parts for profit. I told him that no matter how horrific the revelations, people are a bit pre-occupied watching the world fall apart around them right now. There will be two more releases before the summer is over. Take the time to watch, if you will. I do not believe the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart will come until we have brought this hideous evil down. One of the things Daleiden’s releases this summer have proven is that PP lies shamelessly and constantly unless put under oath with real, potential legal consequences – and then their tune changes entirely. And the idiot media shamelessly parrots the lies while ignoring the sworn testimony under oath. That’s par for the course: this is the same media that has their reporters calling riots peaceful even as burning, looting and shooting can be seen in the background of their camera shots. How long, O Lord, indeed!
Finally, I’ll close with a little patriotic song, “Summer (for the Overcomer)” just released by my songwriter friend, Kay Clarity. I LOVE the imagery in the video. Enjoy.
