Real Thanks to be Given: Our Coming Pandemic of Courage

By Charlie Johnston

After reading tons of commentary on the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict last week, there is a central aspect that has been largely uncommented on. In fact, it may be THE key aspect. This outcome has NOT vindicated the justice system, which should never have brought this case to trial. I am not convinced that it has served as a fortification of the 2nd Amendment either: the left is using it as a platform to advocate against that amendment. What is central to me is that this jury knew that they were being doxed; knew that the lawless lynch mob threatened to harm them and their families if they did not issue the “right” (unjust) verdict; knew that the corporate media was egging the mob on, contrary to the evidence; knew that most public officials on the left were doing the same; and knew that the prosecutors were brazenly lying directly contrary even to the evidence they presented and engaging in shockingly open misconduct. . Yet despite all this and the credible, personal threat to their own safety, this jury followed the evidence and the law anyway and found Rittenhouse not guilty. That was an act of intentional resistance – and open defiance of the maliciously false narrative so many institutions had mounted.

I have to think that, at some point, the jury (from Kenosha County) had to contemplate that the mayor of Kenosha and the governor of Wisconsin, with media encouragement, willingly gave their city over to a violent mob, while this mere teenager tried to defend their hometown. Some on the jury may have even thought, with guilt, that they had not stood in the breach as this boy had. And now they were going to right the moral blight that had afflicted all who had abdicated their responsibility to protect ordinary people – and the malicious evil which led so many institutions to actually encourage the evil.

Since the verdict, leftist officials and the corporate media have been shrieking like a brood of vampires confronted with an armada of crucifixes on a sea of Holy Water. Though they may not yet understand it consciously, they understand viscerally that this is a conscious rejection by ordinary people of them, all their works, and all their empty promises. If they cannot check this rebellion, their influence and power is near its end. For the left, including the corporate media, this heralds a genuinely existential crisis.

This crisis was compounded for them by the horrific assault in Waukesha less than a week later when Darrell Brooks, a white-hating black supremacist (at least by his social media history) allegedly plowed through a Christmas parade with his SUV, killing at least six and wounding at least 40. (I say allegedly for legal reasons – the video record speaks for itself). Much of the corporate media, astonishingly, tried to make excuses for him, suggesting this was not an intentional act of terror, but just a tragic accident as he was running from police for a previous crime. Local law enforcement authorities publicly slapped that excuse down as a brazen lie before a full day had passed (notably quicker than public authorities normally publicly correct media lies). So, instead the leftist media tried to downplay the story and its coverage. After publicly showing their evil nature with their lies in the Rittenhouse trial, it was as if they couldn’t wait to confirm it with the way they covered Waukesha.

As for leftist public officials, Milwaukee County DA John Chisholm is now in the hot seat for his efforts to reduce bail requirements almost to the vanishing point for violent felons since he first took office. At the time of the horror, Brooks was out on $1,000 bail while two open serious felonies are pending against him, one in which he is accused of running over his victim with his car. He should not have been out in the first place. This as even lefties in San Francisco are waking up to how out of control crime can become when prosecutors focus on “criminal justice reform” instead of protecting innocent and honest people. Ordinary people are figuring out that continually releasing violent criminals with little bail is actually issuing blank death warrants for innocent people – whose names are filled in after the released criminal commits his next violent felony when he should not even be walking the streets. If the lefties wanted to fool the folksies a little longer, they should have kept their pie holes shut instead of doubling down on what anybody who looks can now see are hideous lies.

Melissa Mackenzie, columnist at and publisher of the American Spectator, sends out a regular email newsletter which prominently displays the slogan, “Courage is Contagious.” She’s right. May these outbreaks of courage by ordinary people become a true pandemic against the malicious lies of the corporate media and actions of leftist public officials. For this, may we have true cause for Thanksgiving. Aslan is on the move.

Thank you to so many of you who have been praying for me. I had intended this to be a survey column, with several hopeful items, but I can only write by fits and starts – and this was all I could finish right now. There will be more over the next week. Following are excerpts of an update I sent out to the CORAC leadership team earlier today:

I am doing well in my recovery, but still have a climb. Weird stuff…as I recover (and even as the infection was drilling deeper) it is more like a gauntlet of symptoms I have to pass through than a single disease. Every three days it seems, as one painful or trying symptom passes, a new one settles in for a few days. When a previous one is gone, it stays gone. Other than my gauntlet of transient symptoms, the toughest ongoing one I have to deal with is the fatigue and sudden dropoff of energy. When you let Covid drill into you as deeply as I did before beginning proper therapeutic treatment, it is like three wildcats tearing through the house. I haven’t been infectious for almost two weeks. The wildcats are gone, but boy, there is a lot of damage to be cleaned up.  Basically, I can do almost everything normally and I can think intensely again – but after a couple of hours of sustained effort, everything drops off the table and I can’t do serious work again until I have slept a couple of hours (makes it very hard to write – but at least I know when I am dropping off). I hope to have a piece up tonight. Yesterday, I had the best day since I stabilized. I had an awful weekend, after being transported over two days from Missoula, Montana to central Colorado. But I expected that. When I have a good day, I push myself as much as I reasonably can – knowing that it is going to make for a rough day or two following – and then I do it again. Not to worry, this method is taking me three steps forward and then only one or two steps back. But recovery must be measured week to week rather than day to day. Thanks be to God for Mark and Mary Lapchak, who are taking very good care of me, even though I can often be grumpy. And thanks be to God for Beckita, who took care of me for over three weeks when I was at my very worst. 

Let us continue to stumble forward together in the Lord’s service. May you all have a glorious and joyful Thanksgiving!

  4. Yes Charlie, recovering from illness or trauma is a few steps forward and a couple of steps backward, until one day we make it out of the woods. Sometimes its a long haul.

    Wishing you a complete recovery and a very blessed Thanksgiving.

    To all my TNSR friends, have a very special Thanksgiving. We all have so much to be grateful for.

  5. Thanks so much, Charlie, for these encouraging words. And thanks to CrewDog for his!
    I can assure you that the energy does come back. Although we had very mild symptoms, the energy drop off is very real. Even 6 months down the line we deal with it, but it has much decreased. We take it as a message from God that we are to be totally dependent on Him and no other.
    Always ongoing prayers for you Charlie and for all here.
    Blessed be God!

      1. Thank you Katey! Our day of festivities was beautifully solemn and serene. ❤
        It started with me assisting in a Mass presided by and receiving Communion from the Archbishop (Luke) of Malawi and another priest from his Archdiocese, Father Francis. And although he resided in Africa, his story of conversion, and those of his die-hard Islamic family members and community, including the Islamic Chiefs in 2017, was one of the best Homilies of thanksgiving to God I have ever heard!
        His father who refused to give him a blessing to become Catholic, because we Catholics will be damned to hell and would be consumed in eternal hell fire, realized during the consecration in his son's ordination to Archbishop in 2014 that he desired to become Catholic too. After the ceremony, the father fell to his knees before his son (who ran away from home at the age of eight in 1970 and was estranged and exiled from his father and Muslim community until that very day, by the grace of God) and begged to be baptized. The Archbishop told his father that becoming Catholic would take work and commitment and required three years of RICA. He asked his father, if you too want to be damned to hell and be consumed in eternal hell fire, come with me and I will lead the way. 😉 His whole family, except a brother, (there's always one) and the community converted. Praise be to God.

  6. I haven’t read the post yet, but I just got here from CTH and Sundance has essentially the same message at his byline.

    “Joshua 1-9: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.””

    And here is Charlie with Deuteronomy 31:16.

    “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.””

    Coincidence? Hah! I think not!

  8. Charlie,

    Glad to see you are recovering.

    Your insight into the jury action has to be right and that is encouraging.

    Re bail setting, I do think we have a national problem in principle. Darrell Brooks has his bail now set at $5 mil– but why is he offered bail at any amount. Given his priors, including having an active warrant for impregnating a minor in Las Vegas, and his songs and Facebook chatter demonstrating he is full of hatred, common sense dictates that he be incarcerated with no opportunity for release before trial.
    Why is bail set with money as the ticket when in fact criminal handling ought not ethically be treated as a function of wealth. It seems to me that judges should set terms for release without regard to wealth, but only with regard to the risks to society, and conditions set for guarding those released before trial; judges who are voted into office may be held responsible for their decisions by voters. If Soros thought about it, he could have one of his fronts fund bail regardless of the amount set.

    Both juries just made the right decisions, the one in WI and in GA, but there is much more to inspire hope for optimism about a course correction in our society now precisely because the Administration, acting under the Godless, Communist leaning direction of the Democrats, led by feeble minded Joe, have been behaving outrageously across a wide spectrum of public concerns. Biden’s Energy Sec mocks folks for being upset over high priced gasoline, natural gas, and propane; Granholm freely tells us that high fossil fuel prices are constructive, because that will help to drive their new Green religion. As the Woke now seek to erase sex differences as unimportant and actually detrimental to their ideal Godless society, raping school girls is a minor problem only, would be females outcompeting girls is fine, but parents who disagree are now to be treated by the FBI and Intel agencies as domestic terrorists. The price inflation being caused by the trillion dollar pork bills in now being felt by everyone who is not rich.

    The very outrages of Biden and his DemoRat Party are sure to defeat them in the ’22 elections.

  9. When I was sick about the same time Charlie was first layed low I took a 5000 unit dose of B vitamins and miraculously woke the next morning completely symptom free!
    Now it was more probably due to all the prayers I received here but I was astonished how well I felt from one day to the next.
    I would have posted what happened right away but I was so dumb-struck I didn’t think it was real and expected to start feeling ill again at any time.
    Alas, I never did and I’ve been well and on a role now for several weeks.
    So as part of my thanksgiving for Thanksgiving day I thank you all for your prayers and for my continued good health.
    God bless you all.

      1. I wondered about that Phillip. Thanks for this important clarification. This result really put an exclamation point on SteveBC’s encouragement to get Vitamin D levels into the higher ranges… along with his friendly exhortation that the only way to monitor individual levels is by testing levels every 3-4 months. This places our bodies in a position to fend off most any virus.

          1. Phillip and Jewel, yes, B vitamins are helpful. Mainly, it’s the B1 (Thiamine) that helps Phase 2 Covid, because it directly helps stop the immune system from uncontrolled reactions. Thiamine is particularly helpful for people who are overweight and who are often very low in B1 before getting ill. It’s part of my protocol for treatment, to get at least 200 mg and preferably 300 mg of Thiamine a day when sick with Covid, with a formula that includes other Bs as well. 🙂

        1. Just a thought, Beckita, but when I had the virus I had nausea and couldn’t take any of the regime that SBC had laid out for us. However, I trusted that in taking it *before* I got sick I would be in good shape- and I was! Interestingly enough, I was able to take aspirin with a bit of toast for my headaches. 🤷🏼‍♀️
          I think every person’s experience is different, but the one thing that helps is taking care in first place.

          1. An excellent thought, Katey! A friend in town, who is finishing with active covid, was taking bovine IVM as a prophylactic for several months before contracting the virus and has fared well with symptoms during her bout with covid. She attributes this positive resolution of most symptoms in a short time to the IVM.

        2. The lower infection rates of Covid-19 in Africa has been suggested to be partially from the populations out-of-doors lifestyle.-ie; Vitamin D from the sun.
          It is one of the main components of why there are lower sickness rates in summer when people shed clothing and recieve more sunlight hours than during the winter months.
          My illness occured during a cold, overcast period and between work (indoors), playing music (staying up late) and hunting (getting up early) I’d been burning the candle at both ends (and the midnight oil too!)
          I’m still hard at it but the Vitamin D seems to be helping to keep me out of the ditch.
          Great to have rediscovered this here on our site with all the active stories and posts about Vitamin D.
          God is truly concerned with every aspect of our lives, both physical, mental and spiritual.

  10. Glad you are better, Charlie, even though still fighting that evil thing! Great thoughts and analysis and I love the conclusion that there is a “conscious rejection by ordinary people” of all that has been foisted upon us by power hungry dictators.

    I tell the Holy Spirit that we (all His children) are crying out to Him to send His light upon the earth! This morning I gave all my sadness to the Lord (a couple if difficult family issues) as intercession, and even with that, there is still more to be thankful for than there is bad news. Praise you, Jesus!

    I love all of you and pray that you are having a joyful day!

      1. For someone who has just passed day and not had this, but does seem to be getting worse instead of better, as a home treatment will Benadryl work as anti-histamine? A;so. HOW does a sick person get to doctors if they are not well enough to drive? And no one already had covid to be immune to drive them?

        1. Nance, our doc asked us to stay home if we are sick and if we need to go to the hospital then call 911 for an ambulance. As for who would drive ME – if not my husband, then one of my sons would whether they were cvd immune or not. Don’t know if you have family near, and some have family who would not help, but mine would.
          As for antihistamine ~ I took Dimetapp because I thought it was a cold. Worked fine!

Anyway, on Friday afternoon he always treats us to a scripture, usually one of the Psalms. However, today he added in an encouraging quote from Jeremiah 17, as follows;

My visit to the Chapel of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal on the Rue du Bac in Paris, so many years ago, remains in my sweet memories. Then there’s the connection of being born on the Feast of St. Vincent de Paul.

      1. From: http://www.dailycatholic.org/issue/2001Oct/ruedebac.htm
        …” Mary could crush his head at any time and her Immaculate Heart would triumph as she prophesied at Fatima. However, it is the Father’s Will that man play an integral role in redemption to gage man’s sincerity and his commitment to answer His Blessed Mother’s call.”

        On the 27th of November, 1830, St Catherine had this vision
        …”In her hands she held a glowing golden ball – or globe – radiating as she offered it to the Heavenly Father. The glowing golden ball represents all of mankind’s goodness, which, with eyes uplifted, she offers to the Father as Advocate for us. In return the Beatific Vision radiates His Divine Mercy upon His little ones through His Beloved Daughter Mary.”


        …”To protect us from these cancerous times of immorality, corruption and apostasy, Our Lady invites us to wear this medal of the Virgin Most Powerful, wear it close to our hearts so that we can be united with the Two Hearts. These are depicted on the back of the medal. Whereas the original Medal of the Immaculate Conception had the two hearts touching, later castings separated the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. On the Medal of the Virgin Most Powerful the Hearts are again touching. Also the “M” is depicted more as the intended mantle overlapping a crossbeam below the cross. This base of the cross beam or “centerbeam” represents the Sanctifier – the Holy Ghost and establishes firmly that Our Lady and her Divine Spouse are working closely together for the salvation of all for Christ left us His Spirit and His Mother to guide us and protect us. The mantle rests on the altar of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered perpetually.”…

    I’m going to get some of these stickers plus another version that has Trump saying “Biden did that!”.
    Many years ago, back in the Ol’ AF, some buddy of mine gave me a bunch of “Hanoi Jane” (Fonda) urinal stickers that I dutifully placed in Base Ops Heads whilst flying about the USA ….she made a good aim point 😉

  18. Charlie, so very glad to hear your are recovering, even though slowly. I have hear that there is pure exhaustion involved….My first reaction to the K.R. verdict was to think that this was one very courageous jury. They had to know that they were putting themselves at risk and, even so, stepped up and did the right thing. The prosecution’s witnesses made the defense’s case for them! I could hardly believe when the D.A. put his head on the table at which he sat after hearing the testimony of his own witness! Given that there was more than reasonable doubt, a fair jury had to acquit.

  19. I love that line, “Aslan is on the move.” I think with fondness of the unwavering faith, fearless boldness and motherly love of the Foundress of EWTN, Mother Angelica. It was during one of her episodes that I was introduced to Our Lady of America. Recently during morning prayer time, I have been reminded of Our Lady of America’s request. Finally I pulled out Sr. Mildred’s Diary, began reading, and said, “Oh.” Here’s a few quotes:
    “Our Lady promised that greater miracles than those granted at Lourdes and Fatima would be granted here in America, the United States in particular, if we would do as she desires.”
    “I am pleased, my child, with the love and honor my children in America give to me, especially through my glorious and unique privilege of the Immaculate Conception. I promise to reward their love by working through the power of my Son’s Heart and my Immaculate Heart miracles of grace among them. I do not promise miracles of the body, but of the soul.”
    Referring to the Washington, D.C., Shrine she said “It will be a place of wonders. I promise this.”
    “Suffering and anguish, such as never before experienced, is about to overtake mankind. It is the darkest hour. But if men will come to me, my Immaculate Heart will make it bright again with the mercy which my Son will rain down through my hands. Help me save those who will not save themselves. Help me bring once again the sunshine of God’s peace upon the world.”
    “Our Lady made known to me that she is particularly interested in the youth of our nation. It is they who are to be the leaders of this movement of renewal on the face of the earth. …. It is to the youth that she is holding out this challenge. …. America, the United States in particular, is being given the tremendous, yet privileged, opportunity to lead all nations in a spiritual renewal never before so necessary, so important, so vital.”
    Also mentioned in this diary are visions and messages from the “Guardian and Protector of America, Archangel Sardus – Strength of God” as well as the “Guardian and Protector of U.S. of America, Angel Sultra – Power of God”.
    Maybe it’s not too late!

  20. Off topic. I am trying to learn some Old World skills. So I am trying to make sour dough bread at home. I think my sour dough starter was looking good today so I mixed the bread dough and I am waiting to see how it rises. It is somewhat like a science experiment. And fun. I am using the simple recipe Sour Dough Bread for Lazy People found on youtube. This baker is really funny! He is my kind of baker. He takes the fear out and uses a lot of humor.

    “Among other things, Our Lady of Kibeho requested that the people of Rwanda pray the Seven Sorrow Rosary, a devotion given to St. Bridget centuries earlier which had largely been forgotten. During the genocide, the sisters at the convent school the visionaries attended prayed this rosary from morning to evening. All survived the bloodbath. (Find meditations on the Seven Sorrows Rosary and more in this little booklet from EWTNRC: https://bit.ly/7SorrowsRosary
