Happy Thanksgiving week, and I hope you don’t live in a state where the government wants to arrest you for buying a turkey that feeds more than six people.

With all the other things in the news, a very important anniversary is not getting the attention it deserves. This year marks the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Pilgrims in the New World aboard the Mayflower in 1620. A lot of people are poisoning our children’s minds with lies about their nation’s history and trying to convince them that America was founded on nothing but racism, slavery and genocide. They are an even better argument for home-schooling than COVID-19.

Arkansas Tom Cotton has a terrific article at the link about the importance of this date and the Pilgrims, and the truly great and real American traditions that first appeared in that small colony of people seeking the freedom to express their religious beliefs without fear of government oppression.

John Adams called the Pilgrims’ arrival and their organizing document, the Mayflower Compact, the “birth-day of your nation.” Sen. Cotton writes, “In this covenant, the ship’s passengers agreed to form a ‘civil body politic’ of ‘just and equal laws’ based on the consent of the governed and dedicated to the ‘Glory of God’ and the ‘general good of the colony.’ Immediately after signing the compact, the signatories conducted a democratic election to choose their first governor.”

No wonder schools don't want kids to be taught that anymore! Read the whole thing. It will remind you of a whole lot of things that all Americans have to be thankful for, and that a lot of people would like us to forget about.

Speaking of 1620, National Review has a great article about an important new book, “1620: A Critical Response to the 1619 Project.” It’s a well-deserved deconstruction of the New York Times’ awful “1619 Project” that falsely recasts America’s founding as being about nothing but enforcing and preserving slavery and that some schools are now teaching as part of their curriculum (see my recommendation of home-schooling, above.)


Attorney Sidney Powell made a statement to the Wall Street Journal about the report that she was not part of Trump’s campaign legal team, but it still doesn’t clarify exactly what happened. It reads, "I agree with the statement today. I will represent #WeThePeople and seek the Truth. I intend to expose all the fraud and let the chips fall where they may. We will not allow the foundations of this great Republic to be destroyed by abject fraud."

After Georgia certified its vote results, the Trump campaign announced Saturday that it wants a recount that includes signature matching, to insure that the ballots that were counted and recounted are legitimate. Since Biden’s current lead is only 12,670 votes out of more than 5 million cast, or less than 0.5%, Trump has a legal right to request a recount after certification.

Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski has become one of the few prominent GOP political figures to call on President Trump to begin the transition to a Biden Administration.

Fact To Bear In Mind: I’m starting to see op-eds pop up in liberal outlets, praising Al Gore for selflessly putting the good of America first by conceding to George W. Bush in 2000. What they’re not mentioning is that he only did that after exhausting all possible legal options, and the date that he conceded was December 13th. If Trump hasn’t either prevailed or conceded by December 13th (nearly three weeks from now), then you can compare him to Al Gore.


Now that the election is over, the New York Times has an in-depth article on the amazing, successful public-private partnership Operation Warp Speed that helped to develop a COVID-19 vaccine in record time. It still doesn’t give any credit to President Trump. But try reading about all the moving parts, swift action and clearing away of federal regulations and other obstacles that had to be done and try…just TRY…to imagine Joe Biden being able to handle it from his basement.


Friday, HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson issued a statement thanking President Trump for saving his life. Carson contracted COVID-19 and was treated with Oleander 4X. At first, he improved, but he has several co-morbidities and soon worsened and became “desperately ill.” He said Trump was following his condition and cleared him to get the monoclonal antibody therapy he’d received, and it worked.

I’m sure we’re all thankful that Dr. Carson is on the mend, but there’s another part of his statement that applies to us all and that deserves to quoted far and wide:

“I am hopeful that we can stop playing politics with medicine and instead combine our efforts and goodwill for the good of all people. While I am blessed to have the best medical care in the world (and I am convinced it saved my life), we must prioritize getting comparable treatments and care to everyone as soon as possible.

There are a number of promising treatments that need to be tested, approved, and distributed (sooner rather than later) so that the economy can be reopened and we can all return to a semblance of normalcy. Also, people should recognize that there are a number of defined steps that legally have to be taken before vaccines are released to the public and trying to cause alarm by saying dangerous shortcuts were taken only serves to stoke fear. Together we will be victorious. God is still in charge.”

Those who keep pushing draconian measures that destroy the economy and people’s lives until a vaccine is developed while spreading politically-motivated suspicion of any vaccine developed under President Trump also keep telling us we must listen to the doctors. Ben Carson is one of the most preeminent doctors in the world. How about listening to him?


Interesting piece about how the coronavirus has changed people’s habits and which of those new habits will survive once it passes, and which will we ditch as soon as we’re able to. Figuring out that question will have major repercussions for entire industries.


Sunday marked the 57th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. For those of us who are old enough to have lived through seeing the assassination of a President unfolding on live television, it will forever be seared into our memories. Not until 9/11 was there such a traumatic moment that affected the entire nation.

That’s one of many reasons why some of us find it so shocking and appalling that loose talk of assassinating a President you don’t like has become commonplace. It’s just one of many examples of how woeful the younger generations’ history education has become.

There have been many distorted conspiracy theories about JFK’s death that have supplanted the real history, and in recent years, they’ve taken a new twist as political partisans have tried to rewrite the truth about that dark day to throw shade on their contemporary political rivals. For instance, on the 50th anniversary, liberal media outlets like the Washington Post tried to link the Tea Party with the “right-wing extremism” of the ‘60s to imply they would have killed JFK if they’d been around back then. I wouldn’t be surprised to find similar attacks on Trump supporters, if I felt like digging through the muck to look for them. So let me just give you a quick history lesson:

For years, Dallas was unfairly painted by the left as a “city of hate” because JFK was killed there. Yes, there were some nasty anti-JFK ads in the local media (imagine that during a campaign year!) But in fact, the streets of Dallas were jammed with hundreds of cheering well-wishers who turned out just to see the President drive past. That’s why the FBI had so many photos to analyze: because there were so many people who came out to get a picture.

Lee Harvey Oswald was not a Dallasite, or even a Texan, and certainly not a right-winger. He was born in New Orleans and had only recently moved to Dallas. He was also a genuine, card-carrying communist who admired Castro and Cuba and had actually defected and lived in the Soviet Union for three years. He hated JFK for his anti-communist policies.

He was also known to be a rude, arrogant, communist loser who couldn’t hold a job and was always arguing with people and getting into fights. I could make an argument that he sounds more like an Antifa member than a Tea Partier or Trump supporter. But I won’t.

The anniversary of the JFK assassination should be a time for reflection on a tragic event that affected the world and all Americans. It should also be a time for reflection on what horrors can take place when people let their political passions overrun their sense of basic human decency.

    Hey there Mike!
    1. Say, the voting recounts if done to check voter fraud is to prove there is a serious lack of voter integrity, than why is this not mentioned. All I have heard was to prove Trump had votes stolen from him. Is he more concerned with votes stolen or voter integrity?
    2. Covid vaccines--how can we say that they are safe to administer/receive when research data is not available for review and the number of people involved in testing was minimal. To my knowledge to have really great research there must be more than a hundred or so.
    3. Who is writing what Biden is saying? Him? Clinton? Obama? Sad to see that he is choosing many of the same people that was involved in Obama's reign, warmongers...
    4. I wonder how long it will be before Harris will be appointed president, which I believe was one of the reasons for her pick. When, not if and when, this takes place who is she going to have the privilege of choosing as vice president when we the people will not have a say...
    5. Now I know why the topic of foreign affairs was not involved with debates, I sense more wars. I image there would be less war and involving in war if the president and vice president of USA or rather DSA (Divided States of America), went to war as the kings in Biblical age years ago had done. Just a thought.
    6. Can the "supposed" president-elect Biden legally give executive order at Pelosi and Schumer are asking of him for covid relief when he is NOT legally President?
    7. What is this “Office of the president-elect” business? It reminds me of what children would do to play the world of grown-ups…
    8. Do you have any idea how much, if any pay off, to Democratic judges appointed by Obama who has declined looking into the investigation of voting as well as media and those counting votes?
    9. Well is this denial of voter fraud ignorance, where is the law? I thought affidavits are legally eyewitness evidence.
    10. With the Bible studies I have done I see that prophecy is falling into place.
    11. If our government truly cared for its citizens, they would not accept any pay all this time which we have had to live on $1200 for at least 8 months. Maybe they should have to take a cut in pay. After all, when most people in the country is not working, contributing to that which goes into the government workers, where is the money going to come from, Medicare and Social Security, leaving those who current receive without? They should all be fired...
    12. I wonder if all people would have heard about Hunter Biden as well as foreign affairs and what Biden is saying that he will not banish fracking, he will gradually do it, contradictive.
    13. Where is real journalism? What is mainly seen is taking what someone else says instead of gathering news themselves and putting their personal opinions into it and perhaps getting paid to say what other news media say.
    14. I believe that if this government is still after Julian Assange with Wikileaks what about all the other new media who utilized the info and have not been threatened? Julian is not even a US citizen. I believe that Trump should pardon Julian...
    15. If Republicans retain majority of Senate, they should investigate Biden and his history along with others, especially the cozying up of Facebook, and Twitter, not to get revenge but to get to transparency. Muller should reimburse all of the money that was wasted on his hoax investigation and Democrats involved should be investigated...especially Clinton.

    thanks for allowing me to share these thoughts with you.

    Losing JFK was tragic in my young eyes while still in HS. It stills haunts me today America may have taken many steps back after his killing. America is defiantly is headed in the wrong direction if Harris and Biden are elected. The skeletons of disaster are rattling in Obama's closet the sinking of America is about to start. America will again start to stink again the country will decay for at least 4 more years as the sewers are backing up in Washington DC. America got lucky with Donald Trump getting elected Jan 20 2021 if Trump is not reelected America's luck will run its course possibly forever my regret is my Grandchildren may not experience the beauty of a wealthy, freedom loving, generous, nation I hope RIP America will not be our future but evil may control the WH Harris started her political career selling her body to Willie Brown and Biden learned his trade thru demonizing minorities and went on to learn his trade in corruption which they have mastered. America a year from now ,here today gone tomorrow , I feel miserable about the Grandkids future The Deep State is without controls.

    Re: Pilgrims and the New World. This is a copy of my letter to the Editor, published Nov 19, '20.
    Dear Editor,

    While it is true that an Indian showed Pilgrims how to use dried fish/ fish parts as fertilizer, the harvest was not abundant in 1621 nor 1622. Over half of the colonists died due to starvation and its attendant illnesses (the winter of 1620 - 21 claimed the majority). The governor of the colony, William Bradford, reported that the colonists went hungry because they refused to work in the fields. This was the result of reasonable human reaction to requirements in the Mayflower Compact; "all profits & benefits that are got by trade, traffic, trucking, working, fishing, or any other means" was to be put into the common stock of the colony. Withdrawal was "all such persons as are of this colony, are to have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock." Are you familiar with "from each according to his ability, to each according to his need."?

    Here is part of our nation's economic foundation. You can Google Gov. Bradford's journal in order to research what policies he adopted in the Spring of 1623 - in order to turn a failing settlement into one of prosperity. He wrote, "For the young men, that were most able and fit for labor and service did repine that they should spend their time and strength to work for other men's wives and children without any recompense.". Bradford took the first steps toward establishing capitalism and free markets; he gave the colonists land; he allowed them to keep the fruits of their labors(!); he allowed them to trade as they saw fit. Imagine - - people working in their own best interests. The colony flourished. It flourished so well that not only did the colonists have plenty; they paid off their loan early. - - - - Starvation to abundance!

    I thought everyone could use Just a little humor; Dear Employees:
    As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Joe Biden is our President Elect and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%. But, since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go. So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lots and found sixty 'Biden Harris' bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change......So I gave it to them.
    I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

    Just to let you know that I, too, am appalled about the election and even more so that GOP members, especially those reelected thanks to the president, are now pushing for President Trump to concede the election, in spite of several instance of fraud in all Blue states--traitors in my book. Also, on a similar topic, I have a bit of a suggestion: Have you in the GOP ever considered to stop wasting funds for ads telling people to donate and instead using those funds to tell people about the good policies of the GOP Georgia candidates and why the DEM ones are anti-American and contrary to our values? The only way to win is to provide the electors with a clear difference between the candidates and what's at stake. Biden is already planning to undo everything that Trump did: best economy ever, job rates, resurrected pride in America and its way of life, freedom to succeed, etc. Covid has been instrumentalized to defeat the president, like it's his fault for the epidemic death toll, where the media and social platforms, and the elitist have conspired to make "hell on earth" for the American people thank to unrestrained Blue states Governors & mayors who feel like dictators. Time to stop the BS and be united with this president until the end. One way or another. Loyalty used to be a valued trait, but contrary to the Dems who always stick together, the GOP has lacked since day one. If the GOP will continue to undermine this president, the consequences of a Biden presidency is on them.

    I have read 10-15 books on the JFK assassination and have seen no evidence that Oswald "hated JFK for his anti-communist policies." His wife Marina and her friend Ruth Paine both testified that they had never heard Oswald say anything against JFK. Oswald's friend George de Mohrenschildt testified that Oswald was an admirer of JFK and that when de Mohrenschildt expressed approval of JFK's civil rights policies, Oswald agreed with him, saying "Yes, yes, yes; I think [he] is an excellent President, young, full of energy, full of good ideas" (Warren Commission Hearings and Exhibits, Vol. 9, page 275). Furthermore, only five months before the assassination, in June 1963, JFK delivered his famous American University speech in which he in effect proposed an end to the Cold War: "Peace need not be impracticable, and war need not be inevitable....Let us reexamine our attitude toward the Soviet Union....No government or social system is so evil that its people must be considered as lacking in virtue." In short, Oswald had no identifiable motive for killing JFK. Defecting to the Soviet Union for a couple of years and being a bit of a loner does not make one a homicidal maniac. Finally, he knew that assassinating JFK would make LBJ president. Is it reasonable that he would have thought LBJ would be less of an anti-communist?

    JFK was the First President I voted for and I was in Submarines at the time. When the Cuban Missile Crisis arose and Khruschev and Kennedy were both holding the Triggers to unleash WWIII our Sub was selected to carry out a mission, that to this day is still classified. All I will say is the Sect. of the Navy awarded us the "Navy Unit Commendation" vaguely stating we could have died but survived! Thanks! ( Google the navy presence and it's notable NO Submarines were involved?)
    I'm sure JFK's dislike for his VP was shared by many, (He was my Representative from TX) and I do NOT believe in Conspiracy Theories, but many questions remain unanswered. That said I must concede that when you mix Computers, Career Politicians (aka Swamp) Software and a media that has shown utter HATE for the sitting President, ANYTHING is possible. Just the idea of more votes cast than registered voters should VOID the election and done over, using the tried and true paper ballot, Voted in front of public view. Waiting for the NEXT election to correct the OBVIOUS fraud that's apparent will be the end of this Republic.
    I believe you can assume I'm NOT happy with this charade posing as a Fair Election. Never dreamed the nation I served for 8 years would ever embrace Socialism and fortifies my long held belief that ALL HS graduates spend some time OUT of the Country and not at the 5-star hotels most use as a focal point, to see Socialism in person. example: have an acquaintance that has traveled to Cuba after Obama " OPENED UP" the island nation. Seen the photos. I have relatives and friends in Maimi that were lucky enough to escape Castro and they tell a different story. I have worked in USSR, Venezuela, and much of the mid & far east and I can assure you the GUIDES you see are actually GUIDING you away from what is forbidden to see.

    I was at Plymouth Massachusetts on both the Gregorian date of November 11 2020 and also this past Saturday, November 21 which is the actual date on the Julian Calendar which the pilgrims used. Went with a small contingent from my church - 5 in all. Also went to Provincetown where the pilgrims actually landed. Was dismayed we seemed to be the only ones there for the purpose of renewing the covenant originally made by the pilgrims 400 years earlier. There was a large group of BLM protesters and homosexual activists waving their flags and banners banners for the commemoration of the 400 year anniversary it was sadly quiet. On the 11th there was a better turnout but still disappointingly small. Did get to enter the house (re)built on Lot #1 in the early 1700's where the pilgrims met and signed the treaty with chief Massasoit leader of the Wampanoag confederacy which ushered in 40 years of peace and cooperation between the native tribes and the pilgrims. We were invited into the home (this was unplanned) prayed for this nation and renewed the covenant made 400 years earlier for perhaps another 400 years?

    Meanwhile, outside the BLM activists protested.
    Bet they don't know that the first abolitionists in America were Pilgrims or that the movement began right there where they were protesting. Doubt they have any knowledge the abolitionist movement worldwide was begun by Christians with people such as William Wilberforce devoting their lives to the movement until it was finally eradicated in the English speaking world. Thank our woefully failed education system for that.

    At Provincetown we were the only ones there. We again prayed for America and shared in Communion and asked God for his favor upon this land. Do we deserve His favor? Absolutely not. But perhaps He may show us mercy and restore this once great land and make America good again.

    May God bless America and may God save America, in His mercy, in His grace, in His Love.

    Well do I remember that heartbreaking day that Kennedy was assassinated and it is BECAUSE that memory IS etched in both my mind, and heart, that my cry I keep expressing...that the hatred between the political parties does not end in "tragedy" ....INCLUDES my memory OF the tragedy of the day Kennedy was shot because it is part of the KIND of tragedy I am referring TO when I use the word "tragedy" .....

    The statement in this newsletter that jumped out at me was: "Sen. Cotton writes, “In this covenant, the ship’s passengers agreed to form a ‘civil body politic’ of ‘just and equal laws’ based on the consent of the governed and dedicated to the ‘Glory of God’ and the ‘general good of the colony.’ "......AND the REASON it was this statement that jumped out at me is because......

    Despite "political" policy differences between the Republicans and the Democrats, THE one "biblical" policy they should share is, what should be, their mutual desire that America BE "dedicated to the ‘Glory of God’ and the ‘general good of the colony (America)." ....BUT THE TRAGIC TRUTH IS.....

    Not only are our political parties NOT "dedicated TO the 'Glory of God '" they make a mockery OF the Glory of God because their mutual hatred of one another makes a mockery of God who IS love ....and the Democrats add to that mockery by slaughtering God's unborn!......AND .....

    UNTIL both parties have AS America's goal to GIVE glory to the God she used to claim she was founded UNDER, it is ludicrous to talk about America's ECONOMY being what will make her GREAT again....AND....

    IF our beloved President could grab the hand of a man who has given hours and hours of his life to support Mike Huckabee....and WITH this man....want to shout this above stated truth to all the world....he will know what it feels like to be GOD'S kind of winner who cares more ABOUT bringing God glory than he does about whether or not he's bringing glory to himself in an endeavor to prove that he is NOT a loser despite what the Democrats' hatred of him say ABOUT him, because what really determines who is, or is not, a loser is what GOD says about him and anyone who lives TO bring glory to God is, in His eyes , the one who is a REAL winner!
