There is one principle most do not understand about liberty — and strangely I have heard some and seen some veterans demonstrating that they do not understand this principle — is this:

If we, as a people as well as a nation,
fail to protect the liberty of those who are our enemies,
those that we hate,
even those with whom we disagree,
then we all will without a doubt lose both our liberty as well as our freedom.

Our first Amendment protects free speech within our country. It doesn’t reach into other countries as our Constitution is not for globalism but for nationalism – our nation.

Not for globalism that limits rights as well as removes liberty altogether as it threatens its existence — but for the benefits and protection of sovereignty that globalism cannot provide.

Our 1st Amendment also permits that speaker to display whatever level of intellect or lack thereof they so ever desire to demonstrate…

Lucky for us, we have very strong examples of great intellect, great wisdom, and great inspiration…

George Washington, James Madison, John Adams,
John Q Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin,
James Monroe, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy,
General Patton, President Eisenhower, General John Mattis,
Ben Carson, Bret Baier, Paul Harvey,
Zig Ziglar, Mike Rowe…
your mother, your father,
your aunts and uncles,
your grandfathers and grandmothers…

And then we have the likes of Colin Kaepernick with his mindless actions that attract just as mindless followers who would rather dishonor those whose lives earned them as post in the Arlington National Cemetery and instead of offering solutions, offers to lower the bar of character…

Where we focus is where we end up…

Whose voice we listen to, who we consider a hero, whose counsel we pursue…

We cannot change what we tolerate…

Colin is permitted to have his demonstration — everyone is permitted to have their demonstration — through our First Amendment.

However, anyone’s lack of discernment hardly means just because they can doesn’t mean they should.

And supporting that lack of discernment is just as revealing about the supporters as well as Colin.

We have a problem with character not just in the U.S. but everywhere — and it’s not going to get fixed by standing in line with the likes of Colin Kaepernick or anyone else with just as much lack of discernment.

We can correct the problem by holding ourselves as well as others accountable and responsible for their loose tongues, lack of discernment, lack of character, and permitting the bar to be lowered instead of raised…

We can — how many will?

Many want to fight what’s going on with the attacks from the Left, how many are decisive enough to fight and win?

BANNED DOCUMENTARY: Conspiracy Of Silence (1993)

Conspiracy Of Silence Is a documentary film detailing an alleged child sex scandal that involved many children from a Nebraska Institution, Boys Town, and Lawrence King - or Lawrence "Larry" King.

The organized child sex parties implicated the Reagan and Bush White House during the 1980s.

King was the ringleader of the sex ring which had links to other fellow political conservatives in Washington D.C., including

  • Republican Lobbyist Craig J. Spence
  • Sen. Elizabeth Dole's Staff, along with
  • members of the financial elite of Nebraska

It features former CIA Director William Colby talking about the high-level child kidnap and sex-slave ring.

The book that was the basis of this movie can be found by clicking here.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

You can view the full oration by clicking here.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
