Before I watched this video I was very skeptical. Sometimes people use the national anthem for their own twisted agendas (Lady Gaga – halftime shows - anyone?) This young man sang the national anthem in a different key - all the words with the same, he just used a different key.
Okay stop reading right now – go watch the video http://www.ijreview.com/2014/04/134391-theres-good-reason-youve-nev...– no, it’s okay, I’ll wait… 
Ready? Did you watch it? Okay, read on.
What a sad state in time we live in when, while listening to something like this, we can imagine a funeral.
And that is what this song represented to me: This was a funeral dirge for America.
I could just envision thousands and thousands of caskets, all draped with the American flag, burning. I could just envision the enemies of the United States, both foreign and domestic, those enemies of freedom, holding the Constitution of the United States and using it as the torch to light the pyres that would burn freedom from the face of the earth.
I could just imagine those enemies of freedom, both foreign and domestic, dancing wildly and euphoric through the ashes of the bodies of men and women who sacrificed for this country. I could nearly smell and taste the choking, oppressive smoke as the sickening glow of the fires reflected off the wrecked and ruined remains of the land of the free and the home of the brave. I could see, in my mind’s eye, men and women lined up with their families to receive their “papers” from the deceptively “generous” government that sadistically ensures them that the government will take care of them. Each person given the same, all personal property seized by the government for the betterment of all. Of course there would be those hopeless few who would try to remain true to freedom and the Constitution – but as the government had already removed, by force, the Second Amendment – it was mere weeks before all firearms were confiscated throughout America. Those who tried to fight against the oppression were slaughtered, in droves, by those who blindly followed the self-proclaimed leadership. I could just see the same person sitting in the White House term after term after term, more a totalitarian dictator than a president, smiling as the serfs that used to be free citizens plod through their hopeless lives, while those who hate freedom sit in seats of power - laughing at those who are subservient to them. I could sadly imagine the book burnings; millions of copies of the Constitution, Bibles, any reference to freedom - all gleefully thrown upon the conflagration that would sterilize America of such notions as liberty, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom in general. The vassals that once stood proud, I saw in my brief vision, slumped with the weight of oppression working only to further empower those who oppress them. Even, for a brief moment, I could see those who would gather in the name of God being punished for their beliefs. I could see entire families being imprisoned unless they renounce their religious freedom, more specifically – their faith in God.
Just then, my friends, as my blood was boiling, my breath was heightened and my fists were clenched in agony at the death of freedom (amazing how fast the mind works) - the song was over. Seldom have I been so moved, seldom have I been so induced to what may equate to hopelessness as when I heard this. Now understand that I believe what the young man did in this video was very appropriate and necessary. I think that most people who will watch us will not make the connections that I have made nor will they see the things that I’ve seen – and that is not a judgment from me upon them - merely a statement. From the crushing depths of hopelessness as my imagination put these images before my mind’s eye, I was desperate to rise.
So I quicly turned and looked at my library and the many copies of the Bible that sit on my shelves. I also looked at the numerous business books, theology books, poetry and prose that I have in my collection and was reassured that we still live in a free America.
I then watched this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8C7i9kdEf8 - and now I’m going out to enjoy some of the freedoms that we still have here in America. May God bless you my good friends.
Remain free, my friends and fellow Americans, at all cost!
Ken, the non-politician politician.

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
