Happy Thanksgiving!

.

As we celebrate and give thanks with family and friends, we remember and honor those who came before to make our celebrations possible and those who could not make the journey this year.

.

It is a time to thank the Lord for all of our blessings, family, friends and Country. A time to reflect on our Pilgrim forefathers who made the long and arduous journey across the sea, bringing their values, principles and faith as they founded this new Country and the Founding Fathers who later gave us our great Republic and our Freedom.

.

Give thanks to God for being so lucky, but don’t forget to remain ever grateful for those blessings and remember that with Freedom comes the responsibility to protect it.

.

Say a “Thank You” for the great silent majority that found its voice and rose up this year. Pray that they will be silent no more, that they and you will find the time and the strength to remain ever vigilant and the courage to speak out when necessary.

.

Rejoice, reflect and recommit to honor, protect and preserve our values, principles, faith and freedom for as another great American once said:

.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free”.

40th president of US (1911 - 2004)

A wonderful Thanksgiving to all!

God Bless You and Yours,

A Thanksgiving poem for you, enjoy:

On Thanksgiving

.

On the fourth Thursday of every November

We reflect, rejoice and we all must remember

It is to give thanks this day that we all gather

With family, friends and others that matter.

.

We give thanks for our blessings and bountiful dinners

And pray for the Lord to forgive all that were sinners

Of those who no longer the journey can make, we will always remember,

The memories of them will burn in our minds like a glowing ember.

.

We celebrate the Pilgrims who survived those first harsh winters

Standing strong and grateful their hopes were not dashed to splinters

Give tribute to Squanto and the other caring Indians who,

Befriended the Pilgrims and helped them get through.

.

And to whom do we give thanks on this celebration day?

Certainly the patriots and leaders who a great part did play

In recognizing and defending all our God given rights

But, it is mostly to He on high whom shined the guiding light!

.

From Plymouth to Valley Forge and others where hard times were fought

Our Founders always reached out to thank God without second thought

Over the intervening years one fact has always remained clear

Our predecessors abiding faith in the Lord was always held dear!

.

Since the beginning there has always been the presence of God’s guiding hand

From the Declaration, to the Constitution, to the Great Seal of the Land.

“In God We Trust” is the motto of our great nation

To decry or dispute this would be beneath anyone’s station.

.

From ocean to ocean, from the Great Lakes to the Rio Grande

We celebrate the greatness and bounty of this our God given land

On our monuments and on our buildings our God we have praised

Yet among us are a few who would have all vestiges of God razed.

.

Now bow thy head please, for a moment and offer a prayer

That the Supreme Court of our Nation, the highest judicial layer

Might open their eyes and look around at all the abounding evidence

And realize that their separation of God and State is misguided jurisprudence!

.

Lest we forget or take for granted our most precious blessings and lose sight

Of “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” our God given unalienable rights

Be thankful to be able at will to move about, for free speech and the right to assemble,,

For speedy public trial, fair bail and no unjust search and seizures, to make you tremble!

.

Be thankful this and each day for your blessings that do abound

Remember to be ever grateful, that your ship doth not run aground

Cherish your families and other loved ones who support you in all ways

Remain true to your heart and thank God for all, till the end of your days.

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.
