A Rebuttal

I never in my life, not once, ever envisioned a speech by an American President against an eerie red background in the night (which can only be called SATANIC) wherein he called half the country a threat to democracy and where he said, “we will eradicate this cancer”, meaning those people. Never. I felt chills as it happened, and not in a good way. I felt the world change. The American Republic entered an open civil conflict at that point, whether hot or cold, it’s real now. We’ve been called, quite literally, enemies of the State.

As a Christian, this isn’t exactly new, despite America being founded by Judeo-Christian men. Ever since Christ was born and King Herrod sent spies to hunt down and kill the baby, governments have tried to suppress and kill Christians.

Before I get into my main content, I want to address something. Everyone on the right is saying “don’t say or do anything; don’t take the bait”. That would seem good counsel, given what we’ve seen, but it’s not in my nature. It shouldn’t be in any Christian’s nature, but I’ll get to that. If we continue to hide away and not make waves, they’ll keep taking away our rights until we eventually end up as slaves anyway. Slavery later over slavery now is a stupid choice. In fact, Paul had this to say:

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Galatians 5:1

Earlier in the day, the Press Secretary said that anyone who doesn’t hold the majority opinion is an extremist. That’s directly in violation of our First Amendment rights to speak freely, and to petition our government for the redress of grievances.

You see, I believe that Principles Matter. Yes, it’s easier to “not take the bait”, and to “not make waves”, but that is yet again just another form of slavery. I believe, as I’m sure most of you do, that America is the last, best hope for the world, AS LONG AS we support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Bending it to target our political enemies, on either side, is wrong. Standing on principle REQUIRES that we not cower in fear.

I am convicted by my Faith, which compels me to DO SOMETHING:

If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them.

James 4:17

Now, Agent Johanson, I’m not saying we must take kinetic action; I am saying that we must not cower on our couches. I’m going to go on gathering intelligence on far-left groups and events, I’ve taken a leadership role with a political action group, and I am going to continue to arrange protection details for conservative figures. I will actually increase training people on how to prepare and communicate. Does this put me at risk? I guess so.

BUT – I will NOT sit down and shut up. Tonight’s speech was meant as a warning, just as the Press Secretary’s comments and the FBI’s charging of literally anyone who can find January 6th on a calendar. They’re meant to tell you to sit down and shut up. I will NOT. You should NOT.

If we continue to allow only a small minority to speak up and hope for someone to “fix this” via a magic wand, they will continue to pick us off, one by one. Until we all stand and say NO, this will continue and only get WORSE. You aren’t preventing a conflict by inaction; you are delaying it.

I know, the government is all powerful, right? The Former Vice President reiterated his threats of F-15s and tanks. I draw my guidance from Patrick Henry:

They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance, by lying supinely on our backs, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.

The President tonight already laid the groundwork: He said that the “MAGA Republicans” are working to steal the 2022 and 2024 elections. This means that any loss by the Democratic Party will be treated as a stolen election and overturned. Make no mistake, he told you that plainly tonight. The United States effectively went to one-party rule tonight.

The President also stated that the same forces are planning acts of violence. Never mind that the far left is actively conducting violence. These comments tonight, coupled with the “leaked” videos of Patriot Front training, and the repeated comments about threats against the FBI should alert you that “something” is about to happen, which will be attributed to the “MAGA Republicans”, just like the Smollett attack (and probably as real). It’s not an exaggeration, we are in real danger.

America is the last best, hope for freedom on the planet. Will you cower at home, or will you get active, organize, volunteer on a campaign, or do literally anything but complain on Twitter? This is our moment, not theirs.

They are AFRAID, that’s why they are threatening you. This whole “we should not say or do anything” attitude plays right into their hands. No, don’t go out and get violent, but MAKE YOUR VOICE BE HEARD.

It would also be prudent, having heard what he said tonight, to PREPARE. Organize a team (my Contacts & Notes book is great for this), gather your supplies of food and water for the tough times ahead, and start training. Get used to outdoor living and start walking a lot. If someone says that they are at war with you, you should prepare even if it’s only to defend yourself.

Now, I already know that my family will be worried about this post and what could happen because I spoke up, but I will NOT sit in the kitchen 20 years from now explaining to my grandchildren that it’s better to choose safety than to speak up. I will NOT set the example of cowardice in the face of a formidable foe or danger.

The craziest part is, I wasn’t even a MAGA Republican. I wasn’t a Donald Trump voter in 2016 (voted Libertarian). While I liked his policies, he was too sensitive and too willing to compromise, and made some terrible policy decisions. Guess what, though? I am one now. That speech, by its threatening tone, pushed me into that camp. Unapologetically so.

Friends, my point is this…resist the temptation on both sides. Don’t go do something illegal and violent, because that’s playing into their hand, but so is cowering at home and laying low. Get out, get active, and start taking back local, county, and state governments. If we do that, we make the federal government largely irrelevant in our day to day lives.

Long live the Republic.

I DID solemnly swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help me God. A man must fulfill any Oath he swears before God.

If a man vows a vow to the Lord, or swears an oath to bind himself by a pledge, he shall not break his word. He shall do according to all that proceeds out of his mouth.

Numbers 30:2

  1. Your words are articulate, cogent and stirring… and every single one rings true for me as well…even the oath. I did not watch him but saw it because Tucker Carlson had it playing in the background in real time. I was stunned at the devilish pageantry. I knew his words would be ridiculous and so I would wait for the written report.
    I have written letters to this “president” in the recent past and one email. Polite but pointed letters. I have also sent letters via websites to my elected representatives and received the most ridiculous hogwash in return or just silence.
    You know they truly must be scared to put out this vitriol. I say, fine. We will continue to work towards reclaiming our government from these heinous henchmen of the unknown puppet master. And we should stand up and declare that his speech was not only vituperative, but will not be tolerated. Absolutely unconscionable. Thank you for saying what needs to be said and I am forwarding this to everyone I know regardless of their political affiliations as everyone should know your words. Thank you.

  2. Joe,
    I read all your entries in this blog, purchased editions of all your “Tactical Wisdom Series” books, have agreed with your stance and taken your advice to heart but have to challenge one thing you said in the first paragraph of this post.
    I watched part of the speech (couldn’t stomach watching the senile old man yell at me) and read the entire transcript, Biden did not say “we will eradicate this cancer”. He did say “We’re going to end cancer as we know it”, which is a ridiculous thing to say, especially in the context of the speech he gave.
    I’m challenging you on this because the speech was inflammatory enough on its own, we don’t need to add additional fans to the flame using false quotes, we’re better than that, you’re better than that!!

      1. Based on this video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=XC-k-lhml4o at time segment 19:07 I respectfully beg to differ. Please post a link to the video where you heard him say “this cancer”. It isn’t present in the official transcript or the video linked above.
        I’m no expert, just a humble software engineer, but I don’t see anything that indicates the video was edited and that segment of the speech happened to be part of what I watched live.

      2. Ok. I’ve been wrong. I’m not required to post any links nor are you. I’m going to, however, still consider the context of the speech. Beating actual cancer wasn’t what he meant. You are free to believe what you will.
