A federal judge has ruled to stop the vaccine mandate on the Navy, not that it will do any good because the Supreme Court has so far demonstrated its disregard for the Constitution’s Bill of Rights protecting free speech, exercise of religion and personal privacy. Yes, I understand the Commander in Chief’s authority over the armed forces during wartime, but his authority does not extend to an Experimental Use of a drug, nor does it extend over a person’s religious beliefs. There are alternative jobs for conscientious objectors other than throwing patriotic men and women who are defending our nation out of the service without due consideration of their religious or medical objections. This nation is not at war from without.
This nation, whether it realizes it or not, is at war from within. A group of oligarchs comprised of political leadership, the news media, actors, religious leaders and greedy businessmen are waging an undeclared war against not only the Constitution, but each and every citizen, whether they understand it or not. We have been censored, bullied, demeaned, coerced, forced into lockdown, even told what we can wear by a loud and boisterous minority that seeks to remake what so many in our history have honorably defended, even given the ultimate sacrifice to preserve as the greatest example of personal and national liberty in the history of mankind.
On the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration thousands protested in large cities across the country imploring their like to stand up and resist. They shouted obscenities. They wore disgusting, sexually perverted clothing. They sparked riots and looting. They worked to defund the police. All this, hiding behind the First Amendment right of free speech, and very little was done to stop them. And it continues in many places. They are the violent. They are the radical. They are the socialists and fascists who dare soil the honor of fine Americans who fought and died for their very right to LEGALLY and PEACEFULLY petition the government for redress. And they run roughshod over what is right and good to this day.
As was written of another such ancient nation in Isaiah 59:7-14: “Their feet run to evil; they are swift to shed innocent blood. Their thoughts are sinful thoughts; ruin and destruction lie in their wake. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their tracks. They have turned them into crooked paths; no one who treads on them will know peace. Therefore, justice is far from us, and righteousness does not reach us. We hope for light, but there is darkness; for brightness, but we walk in gloom. Like the blind, we feel our way along the wall, groping like those without eyes. We stumble at midday as in the twilight; among the vigorous we are like the dead. We all growl like bears and moan like doves. We hope for justice, but find none, for salvation, but it is far from us.
“For our transgressions are multiplied before You, and our sins testify against us. Our transgressions are indeed with us, and we know our iniquities: rebelling and denying the LORD, turning away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering lies from the heart. So justice is turned away, and righteousness stands at a distance. For truth has stumbled in the public square, and honesty cannot enter.” Brothers and sisters, let us heed the call to repentance, first in the house of the Lord, and turn back to the Lord, for He is our salvation and only His light will illuminate the ancient path back to where from whence we came. Amen.
