Connect the Dots & Brace for Impact...

 


Benewah republican Newspaper - Politics Desk

You can ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

If you rely on MSM for your news, you are not being told about what is happening regarding the election.

That mass fraud occurred on behalf of Joe Biden during the election is now self-evident.

That Dominion personnel and machines were used as but one means of this fraud is established.  That American votes were manipulated by bad actors in Europe and China, with assistance by American citizens, is confirmed.  That Dominion machines flipped votes, weighted votes and otherwise manipulated votes is demonstrated fact.

That President Donald Trump is laying the ground to expose it all is plain to see for anyone who chooses to see.

Election Fraud is Treason.  Joe Biden will soon concede or his self-declared status as President-Elect will otherwise come to a shameful end.

President Trump knew his enemies - America's enemies - intended to steal this election since 2018.  He knew the Chinese would be involved.  He knew anti-Americans and Fake Americans would be involved.  As an American Patriot, President Trump knew that if he did not defend the Office of the President, the Constitution, and patriotic Americans, the republic would be lost forever to Leftist tyranny.

In September 2018 the President put in place the Executive Order titled Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election - link is here.

He quietly placed trusted Americans in places of importance.  Then he waited for the enemies of America, both foreign and domestic, to commit their fraud, to execute their plans to steal the election, to commit acts of war and acts of indisputable treason.

The President watched the election results from a SCIF in the Old Executive Office Building - not the White House.  From the SCIF on election night the fraud was confirmed in real-time.

November 4th the President and his team went to work on multiple fronts.  The legal team began their public work in the courts and state legislatures.  The President purged the Pentagon of problematic leadership and installed a former SOCOM Commander as Secretary of Defense.  Secretary Miller elevated SOCOM to equal status with the branches - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and ordered that SOCOM no longer report through the chain of command to the Joint Chiefs - but directly to him.

Rumors have been persistent regarding CIA involvement in the fraud as bad actors.  Three facts on this matter:  1) John Brennan was able to rise to Director of CIA under Obama.  Brennan freely admits to having voted for a Communist presidential candidate before he entered CIA.  2) The Pentagon publicly informed CIA that the military would stop supporting CIA missions effective January 5th.  3) Rumors swirl, but the fact is that CIA Director Gina Haspel has been cut from President Trumps briefings since shortly after the election, and has not been seen publicly since.

The legal efforts of the President's team are legitimate attempts to allow the courts and the legislatures of the respective states to do their duty.  Their failure to do so is a Necessary Fail, a matter of optics to demonstrate that the President has sought remedy via every means other than what will likely be constitutionally necessary before January 6th to protect America.  Video of cases of fraudulent ballots being scanned multiple times in Georgia should be weighed by the courts - but in the end it is evidence for the American people.  If you watch only MSM, you probably don't even know about that video.

It is no coincidence that DNI Ratcliffe traveled to the Army-Navy game with President Trump this weekend.  The report of foreign interference in our election as required by the Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election is due this Friday the 18th.

It is no coincidence that a database was leaked this morning of Chinese spies around the world, their identities, and some 52,000 Americans on that list will be explosive as President Trump continues to prepare the ground for what must come.

It is no coincidence that DOJ began releasing confirmation of their investigations into Hunter and James Biden this weekend.  The President-Elect will concede, or he will otherwise come to a shameful, criminally-linked end.

Monday the US Congress will likely receive the certified electors put forth by the states.  This will prove to be one more necessary piece of public corruption for all to see once the hammer falls.

There will be more revelations in the coming days and weeks.  Revelations of corruption.  Revelations of who is involved in the corruption.  Revelations of how many of our biggest companies have been manipulated, or willfully corrupted, by greed, foreign influence, and lust for power.

The ending to this story is not yet carved in stone, but the chisels are chipping away.

Do not be surprised when portions of the Insurrection Act are invoked, particularly:

10 U.S. Code § 253 - Interference with State and Federal law

The President, by using the militia or the armed forces, or both, or by any other means, shall take such measures as he considers necessary to suppress, in a State, any insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy, if it—

(1)so hinders the execution of the laws of that State, and of the United States within the State, that any part or class of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law, and the constituted authorities of that State are unable, fail, or refuse to protect that right, privilege, or immunity, or to give that protection; or

(2)opposes or obstructs the execution of the laws of the United States or impedes the course of justice under those laws.

In any situation covered by clause (1), the State shall be considered to have denied the equal protection of the laws secured by the Constitution.

Do not be surprised when corrupt Americans are arrested for fraud, corruption, and even treason.

Do not be surprised when politicians and bureaucrats across the country are arrested by US Marshals for Deprivation of Rights:

18 U.S. Code § 242 - Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

And do not be surprised at the riots and screeching from Lefties, BLM, Antifa and the like when the reality begins to dawn on them that their attempts to execute a coup and color revolution are finished.

And if you are surprised when this happens, because you trust MSM to inform you, shame on you.

President Donald Trump will remain in office through January 20, 2024.

COURAGE IS THE ANTIDOTE TO COVID By Lt. Governor Janice McGeachin


As proudly published in the Benewah republican Newspaper 

It has been more than six months since the first COVID-related emergency declaration in Idaho.

Since then, we have witnessed unprecedented government overreach, which has resulted in skyrocketing unemployment, many businesses closing permanently, closed schools, and churchgoers arrested in Moscow for expressing their constitutional right to religious freedom.

The initial justification for this declaration was to “flatten the curve” of infections. Do you remember that phrase? Somewhere along the line, it stopped being about preventing spikes and instead became about some unrealistic goal of preventing anyone from contracting the virus. The lockdown orders, now frowned upon in an enormous reversal by the World Health Organization (WHO), were eventually replaced with a hodgepodge of mask mandates, social distancing directives, and bans on gatherings of various sizes.

Is any of this infringement on our liberties actually justified? Recent data from the CDC has revealed that the survival rate for those who contract the virus is 99.997% for those age 0-19, 99.98% for age 20-49, 99.5% for age 50-69, and 94.6% for age 70 and older.

Think about that. Tens of thousands of Idaho students are still being kept out of their schools despite the survival rate for young people being 99.997%. As more and more studies show schools are not the incubators of the spread of COVID-19, they still haven’t fully reopened. Adults are sidelined to watch the rates of depression and suicide increasing due to the imposed isolation of our kids.

In an opinion article penned last spring, I stated that all jobs and all Idahoans are essential. I called for the end of the lockdowns, predicted the devastating effects of isolation, and said that we would likely see cases rise, but we will overcome this together- and not at the expense of our economy, our livelihood, and our mental health. Still, it seems that a great many politicians, bureaucrats, and administrators have allowed fear to become their guiding principle rather than respect for the individual liberty and property rights of Idahoans.

Recently, President Trump was diagnosed with coronavirus, and he even spent a couple of days in a medical facility as a precaution. He didn’t respond with fear or panic, though; instead, he encouraged the nation not to allow COVID-19 to become the focal point of our lives. “Don’t be afraid of it,” he said. “Don’t let it dominate. Don’t let it take over your lives. Don’t let that happen.”

In the novel “Dune” written by Frank Herbert, certain characters recite a mantra regarding fear. “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

Fear is a powerful enemy, and, in 2020, we have witnessed firsthand how much harm it can cause. It is time to be courageous and return our state to normal. Our kids need to be back in school, playing sports, and enjoying their youth. Our college students need to be back in their classrooms and our football teams back on their fields.

Certainly, we still need to be responsible and take steps as individuals to protect the vulnerable, including the elderly and those who are health compromised. We must also respect the property rights of businesses and individuals. A little common sense goes a long way.

Last month, Nathan Apodaca, from Idaho Falls, went viral after posting a 22-second video on TikTok, which garnered more than 50 million views. In it, he is riding a longboard and sipping Ocean Spray Cran-Raspberry juice while lip syncing to the Fleetwood Mac song Dreams: “Now here you go again. You say you want your freedom. Well, who am I to keep you down? It’s only right that you should play the way you feel it.”

The viral sensation also resulted in a massive spike in streams of the 1977 classic “Dreams,” enough to enter the Rolling Stone Top 100 Songs Chart. I can’t help but believe that the lyrics from this song, along with Nathan’s carefree attitude, helped propel the video to its viral status.

“It’s a time in the world right now where everybody needs a break from everything that’s going on,” Apodaca said. “This video took them to a place where they could watch something and just chill and vibe out.”

The message of freedom and independence has always been part of the American tradition, and this year, we have felt its absence keenly. I know you want your freedom back and I am fully committed to its restoration. 

All we need to do is stop being afraid.

THE SECOND AMENDMENT: READ IT LIKE A FOUNDING FATHER


Summary for Lefties & RINOs who have both reading and comprehension problems: The Second Amendment does NOT protect the right of the militia to keep and bear arms.  Read the WORDS - "...the right of *the people* to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

*The People* are recognized to have an inalienable right to keep and bear arms just in case some idiot politician decides to turn the power of government against them - *including* the power of the standing army and *well-regulated militia*.  

We weep for those of you who have are un-educated, or who have been mal-educated, or who are otherwise cognitively challenged - but we will never surrender arms, and we pray you never make us turn them on you in self defense.

Now, for those who are capable of reading and comprehending - here's the article:

THE SECOND AMENDMENT: READ IT LIKE A FOUNDING FATHER

The Second Amendment: A well regulated Militia, being necessary

to the security of a free State, the right of

the people to keep and bear Arms, shall

not be infringed.

The Second Amendment in our Constitution

is the most hotly debated topic regarding our

Natural Rights as Americans. The Second

Amendment is not only misunderstood, but

often deliberately mis-interpreted by people

on both sides of the argument.

Leftists argue that the ‘…right of the people

to keep and bear arms…’ is intrinsically

and inseparably tied to the fi rst part of the

Amendment that states, ‘A well regulated

Militia, being necessary to the security of

a free State…’ – and they are absolutely,

undeniably correct.

They argue incorrectly, either by deliberate or

ignorant misunderstanding, that only those ‘…

people…’ who are part of the ‘…well regulated

militia…’ are entitled to bear arms. That is not

what the Amendment states – at all.

Here’s the bottom line: ‘…the right of the

people to keep and bear arms, shall not be

infringed…’ is precisely because the ‘…well

regulated militia…’ was newly defi ned as a

separate entity under the control of the US

Congress.

Prior to the Revolutionary War, the commonly

understood defi nition of militia was all ablebodied

male citizens. That changed – legally

and constitutionally – in Article 1, Section

8, Clauses 15 & 16 of the Constitution. The

same Founders and Framers, who had just

defeated the British using the Colonial Army

and Colonial Militias, decided to formalize

the American Militia. They decided to make

it ‘Well Regulated’ as opposed to what

existed prior to the war. George Washington

understood intimately that the American

Militia system, to be useful to a General in the

field, had to evolve from what it was during

the Revolution.

So, the Founders and Framers gave the new

Congress authority in Section 1 Article 2:

Clause 15: To provide for calling forth the

militia to execute the laws of the union,

suppress insurrections and repel invasions;

Clause 16: To provide for organizing,

arming, and disciplining, the militia, and

for governing such part of them as may

be employed in the service of the United

States, reserving to the states respectively,

the appointment of the offi cers, and the

authority of training the militia according to

the discipline prescribed by Congress;

The Militia Acts of 1792 further fl eshed-out

the new defi nition of militia and militiamen.

Here is where the leftist & anti-gunner

argument encounters its fatal flaw.

The same Founders and Framers who, in the

new Constitution, redefi ne and form a ‘Well

regulated militia’ under State and Federal

control, also were fresh off the battlefi elds

against the British Standing Army and

several Loyalist Militias. These Founders

and Framers knew that any standing army –

be it an American standing army or even an

American ‘Well regulated militia’ – could be

suddenly turned against ‘…the people…’

So, they drafted the Second Amendment and

crafted it very deliberately. They understood

that a ‘…well regulated militia…’ was essential

to America’s future. They also understood

that the possibility existed that one day, ‘…

the people…’ might have to defend themselves

from that new ‘…well regulated militia…’.

Leftists and anti-gunners like to point out

that today’s National Guard is the same

‘Well-regulated Militia’ established in the

Constitution. They are not wrong.

How many times have ‘…the people…’ been

in harm’s way because the federal, state or

local government has turned the power and

weapons under their authority against ‘…

the people…’? How many times have leftists

bellowed for ‘The Government’ to use force as

a means of imposing their will upon citizens?

Once again, the brilliance of our Founders

and Framers is right there for us to see.

They said: ‘…the right of the people to keep and

bear arms shall not be infringed…’ precisely

because we, the Founders and Framers, are

creating a ‘…well regulated militia, being

necessary to the security of a free state…’

– that, one day, may be used against ‘…the

people…’ who have an unalienable Natural

Right to defend themselves.

It is expressly ‘...the people...’ who have the

right to keep and bear arms.

Permission to use the Force of Law By Ammon Bundy

 


As published in the Benewah republican Newspaper

Let us honor General George Washington – one of the greatest founders of the United States of America, the first president, and a signer of the U.S. Constitution. In Washington’s own words, he defined government in saying, “Government is not reason, it is not eloquence — it is force. Like fire it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master; never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”

When tending to a fire, the most irresponsible thing one can do is to leave the fire to tend itself. Using our first president’s analogy, the worst thing a people can do is to allow government agents to tend themselves. Which, by the way, is exactly what we have done for the past century! I know you might be saying to yourself, “I vote every year and so I’m doing my part to tend government.” Well, I’m sorry, but if you think voting is all that is required to tend the flames of government, then you are sorely mistaken. You see, as the father of our country described, “government is force.” Therefore, it is the force of government that we must focus on most. Voting, without further tending, is simply not enough.

So, in this spirit of trying to extinguish the wildfires of government force, let’s talk about how government force upon a person was designed to be controlled. However, before we get too far, I should mention the obvious: once a fire gets out of control the damage is usually very significant and it takes tremendous sacrifice and energy to get it back under control.

The truth is, authorized government force upon a person or people was designed to be very limited. It was only to be used for a specific reason and only when the people authorized it. I believe the Declaration of Independence best outlines the specific purpose for the use of the force of government, “…to secure these rights [the rights of a person] Governments are instituted among men.” In other words, the only rightful use of government force is to secure the rights of a person.

Now, hold on for just a minute! Does this mean government agents can use any force they wish upon someone as long as it is to “protect a person’s rights”? I don’t believe so. Just because someone is trying to help protect someone else, does not necessarily make it right. What if my neighbor thought a tree on my property was going to damage my house, so he came onto my property and cut down the tree? His intentions may have been good, but he had no right or authority to cut down the tree in the first place. In fact, if justice was to be administered properly, he would be required to replace the tree and restore the damages. My neighbor may cry and pout about how ungrateful I was and how he was just trying to protect me. But in the end, he would be wrong; he did not have authority to fire up his chain saw and use it on my tree. So it is with government agents when they use force in defense without authorization from the people.

Permission from the people, authorizing government force upon a person, is very well documented but not well followed by government agents today. So, let’s identify who has been given permission by the people to use government force and when are agents authorized to use it. Stick with me, this is the important part.

(1) A person’s right must be threatened or violated by another person before any government agent can use force to secure that right.

(2) The person using government force to secure a right must have direct authority granted to them by the people.

Inside each individual State, the only agents that have been given power by the people to use force is the County Sheriff. A Sheriff can deputize other people to help him/her exercise this power, but the Sheriffs are the only people in the State that hold the power to use government force upon a person. Yes, accountability is the reason. Through an election, the people delegate the use of force to the Sheriff. If he or she abuses that force, the people can and should take that authority away. The people can take this power away peacefully by not re-electing the Sheriff or by recalling him. With the Sheriff knowing he is accountable to the people, he will in return be more likely to hold his deputies accountable to him.

This process of delegating the force of the people to the Sheriff through an election is what helps keep the people safe from government agents using government force incorrectly.

(3) When a person is accused of something, government agents must get permission from the people to criminally prosecute. This permission comes from a Grand Jury made up of the people. If the Grand Jury does not indict, then government prosecutors have no authority to prosecute.

(4) If the Grand Jury does indict, then the person being accused may be forced to be present at a trial. But again, government agents do not have the authority to punish a person or convict them of a crime. Punishment and conviction are determined by people, in a jury, at the end of a fair and public trial. If government agents punish a person before the people have determined that person is guilty, then those agents are acting outside the authority the people have given them.

Does the statement, “A government of the people, by the people, for the people” sound familiar? It should. Our government process was designed to be “of the people” meaning it is made up of the people, “by the people” meaning everything that government agents do must be approved by the people, and “for the people.” This is obvious. Yes, all government action should be for the people, not for government agents, and not for something else.

Now, I could go on at great length explaining how city and state and federal police are unconstitutional because the people have never given them authorization to use government force. We could discuss how prosecutors have nearly eliminated the Grand Jury so they can be the ones to determine persecution upon a person. We could also go into detail about how judges are controlling the trial jury, rather than the jury (the people) controlling the judges. Most importantly, I could go into detail about how the Sheriffs are the most powerful people in the entire country. Most Sheriffs do not know or understand the power they hold.

So, all in all, when you are electing a County Sheriff, remember you are authorizing that individual to use government force upon a person. That is a very delicate power and one that must be attended to with even greater care than an open fire.
