"...and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint committee requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially a form of government for their safety and happiness. Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November, next to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being Who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, or will be ...that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to there becoming a nation... And also that we then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations, and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions... to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a governmment of wise, just and Constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed...(and) to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among us...given under my hand at the City of New York, the 3rd day of October in the Year of Our Lord 1789."

I wasn't sure how to rate this with stars so, it was with a full heart of gratitude and knowledge of the here spoken foundation and reasoning, I had to give it 5 stars.

    " The counsel of the Lord standeth forever, the thoughts of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Let thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, according as we hope in thee." Psalm 33:11,12,22

    Spoken in the days when the People could acknowledge "that great and glorious Being Who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, or will be..."  The secularization of America has opened the doors to atheistic communism's religion of Power that has since hijacked the republican form of government. 

    They have taken over the currency, switching from gold and silver money to interest bearing IOU's (a fundamental communist plank), the public schools have been turned into indoctrination camps to disempower children and to re-write history.  Urban plantation's vote in nearly every capital city overrides the working families in the rest of the country — and elections are increasingly fraudulent — as the communists say, "it's not the voting but the counting."

    Government bureaus with no law making authority are imposing rules on the People, requiring they be injected with a brand new, never tested before on humans, "vaccine" that is not a vaccine but an experimental gene therapy that actually makes you sick forever to stimulate the immune system, when in fact it weakens immune systems considerably month after month.  And unlike any other vaccination, if there are adverse reactions, the pharma companies (and the government) have given themselves 100% immunity from suits for damages.

    This is world war, plain and simple.  The Western nations are being brought to their knees by leftist governments.  My god, Hitler never had such a reach, and the USSR couldn't even pull this off.

    It is a Chinese takeover, with all the Western politicians in their pockets doing the heavy lifting.  China is the biggest beneficiary of all this, and it is absolutely intentional.  They managed to fix the US election (hundreds of thousands of mail-in ballots and phony IDs have been seized coming from China).  The Biden's have been helping China for decades — follow the money.

    How can we get out of this if we continue to be dependent upon Chinese goods?  I went Christmas shopping the other day, and wondered how empty these stores would be if there were no Chinese products?  Every appliance, TV, plastic spoon, or toy would be gone.  These products are made with communist slave labor — not just the Ugyars but the majority of the population.

    We must get back on track to defending Freedom and lawful Constitutional government — end the states of emergency which are long past due.  Tear down this wall!  

    Let us stand up against these obvious power plays designed to destabilize American life and foment civil war. And in the words of George Washington, with the help of Divine Providence we will succeed.
