Timely and accurate information is power. Misinformation or delayed information is costly. Keep those notions in mind as you read about the evolving labor pains of America. Is the 2020 race over? Or is the struggle for political power in Washington, D.C. and beyond just entering a new phase?
Shortly before the election, in “A Dangerous Imbalance: Restoring Order to a Republic in Crisis,” Tod Warner wrote a couple of weeks ago the following.
“Morally confused and civically disengaged, we have lost our cultural balance. Let us remember who we are.
To say the least, he was irritated.
Frustrated with a capricious sovereign and forced (on principle) to take a life-altering stand, Thomas Jefferson’s quill scribbled furiously. The English crown, he fumed, could not expect a people to suffer such indignities. Oppressive taxation. Obstructed commerce. Second-class citizenship. It was enough. And so he wrote. With every careful word, there widened a breach. In every thoughtful idea, there confirmed a rupture. And when the Second Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence (publicly reading it four days later amidst the toll of the Liberty Bell), they had arrived at the point of no return — de facto and de jure rebellion. For the American experiment, July 4, 1776, proved both a bitter end and a glorious beginning.”
Skipping a bit, Warner continues. “… By the time the Declaration was read, the American colonies had been in open (albeit largely unsuccessful) conflict with the British for over a year. And after the Declaration’s ink was dry, the new country would still have to clumsily battle the British Empire for seven more years, hold a raucous, months-long Constitutional Convention, furiously debate Constitutional ratification (through the pseudonymously signed Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers), and further make the Bill of Rights the law of the land. The birth of the nation was glorious, but the labor pains were protracted and plenty.”
Before each new birth in the typical natural order of humanity, there are labor pains. Ask most mothers, and they can tell you that the pain of birth is real, but the joy that follows is glorious.
On that fateful day on July 4, 1776, the founders signed the Declaration of Independence. They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. Some died. Some lost much or all. But they led the charge for giving birth to the new American nation “under God” that broke away from the British crown in an anti-tax, anti-monopoly rebellion.
There was a bloody battle, but it included an early – and by modern standards – crude type of information warfare. In order to rally people to rebel or resist, an appeal to minds and hearts had to occur.
Centuries before smart phones, cellular, land, or cable lines, Pamphleteers spread the words that rallied enough of the colonists to rebel against England. People red those pamphlets with an interest that if it could be measured likely blew away that of people’s fascination today with social media. Live speeches were used by the founding leaders too.
Roughly 1/3 of the nation-to-be colonists rebelled. Perhaps 1/3 were loyal to England’s crown. About 1/3 sat on the fence. So it is today in the USA, which is facing a darkly impressive and unprecedented modern assault on our way of life. And in some ways, part of that onslaught is an open attack on reality. There is a battle being waged with our core beliefs as a self-governing people, and upon faith itself.
Following a pandemic that hit some 180 nations globally that came from Communist China, an infectious plague that far too few expected, much less we’re ready for – the decision was made to seal of travel from China and then Europe. Over time, as the coronavirus spread through the nation and fears that our hospitals would be overrun with patients, the decision was made to shut down parts of our then robust economy. Right or wrong in how that was done, the first questions should have been, what happened to the tens of billions of taxpayer dollars spent over a decade to safeguard Americans from precisely what occurred? How is it possible that Doctor Anthony (Tony) Fauci and Dr. Robert Kadlec, the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) at the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS), could be briefing Congress calmly on December 4, 2019?
Fauci and Kadlec were among the science, medical, and intelligence services point-people our nation spent billions on so that we could avoid the pandemic that hit America and the world in late 2019 and in 2020. No leader of a large organization, corporate or elected, can know everything. That is why there are departments with leaders who are supposed to do their jobs and inform their superiors accurately and in a timely manner. Part of what Dr. Kadlec presented to Congress included a mention of Crimson Contagion, which was a pandemic response drill held in a dozen U.S. states, plus cities and other jurisdictions in August 2019.
Good timely information is power and has value. A lack of sound information, or poor and tardy information, can be crippling. You and all have lived that reality this year. More on information shortly.
In the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote the following which the founding fathers signed onto at grave risk to themselves, their families, and their loved ones.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”
The founders didn’t all share precisely the same beliefs. There were – for instance – various types of Christians, Deists, and Masons. Their specific beliefs in God differed. But to them it was self-evident that God exists. It was commonly held that God that gives life. That faith in the Creator, the Almighty was a common belief among the majority of colonists. Indeed, it was religious liberty along with the desire to be freer that motivated many to risk the dangerous voyage to America in the first place.
Even the ‘enlightened’ among them recognized that from nothing, nothing comes.
It is nonsense in modern times to believe in a big bang without asking, ‘where did the matter that was part of that big bang come from? What caused that initial ‘big bang’ explosion? The easy and obvious answer could be God created that matter, a God that always was and always will be. A Creator who is pure Spirit, immaterial, timeless and unchanging. A Spiritual Being that caused all else to come into being, our of pure love, and then gave the sentient form – our humanity – the ability to freely select between right and wrong.
Unlike the pamphleteer era that sparked the American Revolution, today, much of the perception of reality among hundreds of millions of people comes from electronic devices. Radio, TV, the internet, high speed cellular or satellite information has largely supplanted print information. Many may still read books, magazines, or newspapers. We still get physical mail. But electronic and digital communications dominate.
When a relatively few hold those forms of communications in their billionaires ‘elite’ and giant corporate hands, the question becomes, can those digital oligarchs twist our very sense of reality?
The troubling answer on November 8, 2020 is ‘yes.’
Some years ago, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson left CBS News. She explained why in the video interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter below. If you’ve never seen this before, take the time to carefully digest it, because what Attkisson said years ago very much applies to our time too.
Fast forward to November 2, 2020. Independent journalist Attkisson Interviewed this Hispanic journalist. He explains a point not so different than Attkisson’s. He says that his nonpartisan pursuit of a story has caused him to lose a job 8 different times. They called this segment, “Shaping the News.” The YouTube page says, “There are many factors impacting, even slanting how the news is reported. We get some eye-opening personal insight from a Latino journalist.” Even if YOU understand this, others in your circle likely don’t. Watch, listen, and then share.
Attkisson interviews a man who the federal government spent a couple of years persecuting, before they gave up. Dr. Steven Hatfill is the author of 3 Seconds to Midnight. Attkisson’s YouTube page includes this introduction.
“Amid the coronavirus pandemic, you’ve probably heard that public health officials have been predicting a pandemic for years. So why did it seem we were caught so flat-footed when it actually happened? Today, one person asking that question is a scientific name you may recognize if you’ve been around long enough: Dr. Steven Hatfill. He’s an adjunct Assistant Professor at the Department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Tropical Medicine at George Washington University…and co-author of Three Seconds Until Midnight…which has turned out to be a case of incredible timing.”
Dr. Hatfill explains his own drama with the federal government, which he finally prevailed in. He reportedly sued and won millions. He explains in this video below that COVID19 is just the tip of the iceberg in pandemics. What will come next will be worse.
Dr. Hatfill says that perhaps $100 billion or more was spent in a decade preparing for a pandemic much like what we now have, or worse. Those tens of billions spent occurred during the Bush-Cheney and Obama-Biden Administrations, years before Donald Trump ran for office, much less had any responsibility.
- Our federal institutions failed to safeguard Americans by the tens of millions.
- Much of our mainstream ‘legacy’ media institutions failed too.
- What about big tech? Are we to believe that multi-billion dollar corporations that donate to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, or other nonprofits that are involved in health and pandemic research, had no clue as to what was going on in Wuhan, China?
While hundreds of millions of Americans were busy with work, play, social media, entertainment, Faith, or whatever – a new plague almost invisibly came to America from Communist China.
It is worth reviewing – or seeing for the first time – the report by NTD/Epoch Times below on just how this pandemic began to emerge.
Then, some might explore the “Cover Up of the Century,” by a different journalist covering the ways that the Wuhan Virus was allowed to escape and spread into the U.S.
Lest someone think these are merely ‘conspiracy theories’ – a lazy way for media, political, corporate or tech master to brushing off concerns that merit serious understanding and attention – the video below is a Chinese virologist. She escaped to the U.S. to tell what she knows about how China covered up what she said was a “lab created” pandemic, at great cost to our world and this nation. She provided her evidence too.
It is sad, but true that in many cases news reports from outside of the U.S. are more insightful than those that come from American corporate media.
There are numerous video interviews of “Chinese virologist Dr Li-Meng Yan, who investigated the origin of the COVID-19 virus during the initial outbreak in Wuhan, and startled the world with her claims that the COVID-19 virus was laboratory-made, has now released a second paper,” as this Indian interview reflects. Anyone can go to YouTube and search Dr. Li-Meng Yan name to see other interviews. This interview was uploaded on Oct 9, 2020.
Be it Dr. Li-Meng Yan, Dr. Hatfill, or others, how is it that so few in America know these names? Why is it that Dr. Fauci is a household name?
In a phrase, the mainstream media and big tech largely determines what people see for their own reasons. That is what award-winning journalist Attkisson and others in media have said, as MHProNews has reported for years. This isn’t new, but the reasons why it matters are perhaps now being made clear through the surreal aftermath of the 2020 “general election.”
To be clear, some of these things could be learned from mainstream media. Tucker Carlson, for example, interviewed Dr. Li-Meng Yan. But it takes some effort to sort out bias and agendas that drove their narratives.
There is a monopoly on money and information, said actor Danny Glover.
Glover served on a Warren Buffett nonprofit board. Buffett’s son Peter Buffett, who runs a nonprofit, has said, that these nonprofits often fail to positively change much what a given nonprofit supposedly exists to improve. That doesn’t mean there aren’t good nonprofits. In our profession, MHARR, or more broadly for small businesses, the NFIB or the Job Creators Network, are some that might be mentioned as worthy of careful attention and support.
But while America was being distracted and entertained, class warfare was underway. Who said? One of those who declared and arguably led that battle.
Look at the Berkshire board of directors. Finance, media, big tech, legal, and nonprofit interests jump out. The truth is hiding in plain sight.
Warren Buffett was correct in saying that you can’t make a good deal with a bad person.
Look at who has benefited from this COVID19 pandemic. It is routinely the same people who have such influence over what we see, hear, and much of national or even local politics. It isn’t that wealth honestly earned is bad. But what if wealth has been earned by market manipulation, as Bill Gates himself said about his now good buddy Warren?
Buffett said, there has been class warfare. He says his class waged war on the rest of us. He said they won. Was the mere hyperbole? Or was the meant more plainly? Who was involved in that class struggle? Who did Buffett and his peers routinely support? What did those in the Obama-Biden Administration do for him and his buddies in return?
What has this pandemic wrought? The Communist China Virus brought down tens of millions of American jobs by shuttering millions of ‘non-essential’ businesses. Who did that benefit, if not the big ‘essential’ businesses?
These are irrefutable realities. They beg for citizens that long to be free to grasp just what is happening NOW in our country, because what is happening NOW, began years ago.
The uber-class of elites have grown wealthy by partnering with members of both major parties, but financially more so with Democrats in recent years. What happened to the Democratic Party’s claim that they were for the little guy?
What the pandemic has produced is what some involved have said is the greatest transfer of wealth in world history.
Many of those billionaires are either atheists or use religion as a kind of cover, which Gates said his faith doesn’t influence his business decisions. What sort of ‘faith’ can it be that fails to influence your thinking?
We have to get back to basics. God is real. Evil exists. That evil is personified by what Saul Alinsky referred to as Lucifer, the first rebel against God. Alinskyite tactics have been adopted wholesale by much of the political left. Lying and misdirection are part of that, and mocking their opponents are another aspect of Alinsky’s dastardly thinking.
No candidate can replace God who created all things that exist in the universe untold millennia ago. Whatever the flaws of America, millions come here knowing it has been the freest nation on earth.
There is a war underway, Buffett said so. It includes information warfare. Perhaps more accurately, it is agenda-driven spin, paltering, misinformation and misdirection warfare.
Glen Greenwald, an award-winning liberal journalist has said there is a nexus between big tech, big media, the intelligence services, and big money. Greenwald reported on Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing story of American intelligence services spying on Americans without a warrant or probable cause.
Rephrased, the truth is out there and is hiding in plain sight. But big tech, big media, big money, and key figures on the left, at times allied with some RINOs on the right, are moving steadily to form a feudal society. For those who forget or never knew, feudalism was a vassal-lord relationship. If you don’t like slavery, serfdom is its cousin.
There are voices on the left and right that have warned us for years. But it takes effort to learn to sift what is real from what is illusory.
This writer and MHProNews did not know a week ago that the ‘news team’ at Fox News would essentially join with CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC on a key but simple concept. Elections have rules. Those rules are based on federal, state, and local laws. Those laws flow from the U.S. Constitution and state constitutions. Nowhere do those constitutions say that the winner of an election is decided by mainstream corporate media or big tech oligarchs.
Newsmax TV, and several other ‘conservative’ or Faith-based media outlets has not yet ‘called’ the election in favor of Joe Biden or Kamala Harris. Nor would MHProNews. Why not? Because the election process is not constitutionally completed!
After Fox prematurely ‘called the race’ for Biden-Harris, reportedly millions of ‘conservatives’ flocked to Newsmax in protest.
Judge Jeanine Pirro, a pro-Trump news-talk host on Fox was cancelled last night. Pirro, it is said, was going to report on election fraud. That doesn’t fit the narrative that Fox has joined CNN, MSNBC, and others in spreading.
What will happen this upcoming week with Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, or Sean Hannity this week? Will they tow the new Fox party line? Will they tone down their commentary? Let’s see if the Pirro episode is a one-off, or part of a new pattern at the ‘conservative’ ‘pro-Trump’ network.
In 2000, former Vice President Al Gore and then Texas Governor George W. Bush fought for weeks over questionable ballots in Florida that would decide the electoral college that year.
To be clear, if Newsmax or any other conservative or faith-based media suddenly went off the deep end before the valid and lawful constitutional process is completed, we’d call BS on that too.
God and the Constitution are the national safeguards of our inalienable rights. Those rights don’t flow from the billionaires and corporations that are poised to take America by deception.
Months ago on the Masthead, what was occurring due to the pandemic was called Bio-Econ-Prop War 1. That’s our phrase, but others have on occasion used a similar notion. A Biological-Economic-Propaganda war was underway. Communist China was part of that war. So too are oligarchs here in the U.S., parts of Europe, Asia, or other places globally with sufficient resources to be numbered in the global elite who openly have said for years that they seek a New World Order.
That New World Order (NWO) or globalization was specifically rejected by candidate turned President Trump. President Trump isn’t God. President Trump is obviously not the Second Coming of Christ. He’s a mere man, albeit a successful one. As a businessman, Mr. Trump was into real estate, entertainment, and various investments including gambling. He failed at times, but he succeeded more often.
Before he ever ran for office, Warren Buffett -Chairman of the Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate – specifically named Mr. Trump in a scornful way. Before the 21st century occurred, Mr. Trump managed to earn and entertain his way into a fortune. Agree or not with the man or his morals, he somehow managed to beat 16 other Republicans in the 2015-2016 election cycle. That included Governor Jeb Bush (FL-R), who just congratulated Obama-era VP Joe Biden on his ‘victory’ in 2020.
Restated, candidate Trump first beat the Republican Establishment, including, but not limited to, the Bush family that led us into ‘Endless’ Middle Eastern wars.
Candidate Trump then beat the Clinton dynasty, and the big tech, big media, big money powers behind them.
There are absolutely times when the New York Times, the billionaire Jeff Bezos owned Washington Post, CNN, or other left of center media outlets gets some facts correct. The CNN interview with Sharyl Attkisson posted above is evidence that some facts or ‘truth’ can come from an source, regardless of the ownership’s agenda.
But who on the right was caught by surprise when Fox News suddenly joined CNN, MSNBC in their ‘call’ of the 2020 election for Biden-Harris while states are in dispute and the election results are not yet certified? That is not what occurred in the 2000 dispute, once the legal challenges began. Much of the mainstream media is putting their hand, not a thumb, on the scales – creating an illusion of victory that may or may not hold up once the challenges are heard.
Meanwhile, stories about scandals involving the Biden family and others in that orbit suddenly become muted.
Think back to those Trump rallies. President Trump has cautioned his followers for months that Fox was a problem on the ‘news’ side, while thanking certain talk-news hosts for being fairer and more balanced toward the Trump Administration. President Trump has carefully prepared millions to think of One America News Network (OAN or OANN), Sharyl Attkisson (Sinclair-Full Measure), and Newsmax as possible options. He’s also talked to religious news outlets, like conservative Catholic EWTN.
Breitbart, the Epoch Times, The Blaze, Townhall, Daily Torch, Daily Caller, Gateway Pundit, and a raft of other conservative, libertarian, and religious media have, to various degrees, covered the pandemic, the Trump Administration, politics, and campaign in a fashion that stands apart from how the left-of-center media has. But to be clear, there are at times useful nuggets of reality that shines through from media across the spectrum. Certainly, while Glen Greenwald on the left holds thinking different than ours, he has, at various times, shown the willingness to report and analyze more accurately than many of his peers on the left have.
Most people do not have the time or inclination to sort through media to figure out the truth of a topic. While our time at MHProNews is comparatively limited to mainstream or alternative media outlets, and our primary focus is affordable manufactured homes, we strive to curate information for our readers on issues that impact our nation, not just our profession. After all, what happens to America impacts our profession too.
Having spoken for years with others in professions or industries other than our own, the issue of consolidation or monopolization is a common theme.
It is an open question how Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, Mark Levin, or others in the talk-news side will handle the sad fact that their Fox network has ‘called’ the 2020 race for the Oval Office Biden-Harris. In fairness, it is true that Fox puts a caveat that President Trump’s legal team might prevail, but they downplay the allegations of fraud and abuses of the election process.
Those of us Americans who thankfully ‘get it’ that information – more specifically paltering, mendacity, misdirection and spin-laden ‘News’ – is part or a broader assault on our liberties should carefully ponder their relationship with God. They should realize that ‘business as usual’ ended some time ago. If you believe Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC, NY-D) – a self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist – they have a list of people that don’t share their views.
Rush Limbaugh, Trevor Loudon, Dinesh D’Souza, Peter Schweitzer, Project Veritas, Capital Research Center, Judicial Watch, and a host of others that are often on the political right have warned us of just how corrupt the system has become. It isn’t just Marxist, socialist, or communist thinking. It is also the Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg, George Soros types and their World Economic Forum (WEF) globalists by working with and funding radicals as well as ‘mainstream’ politicians has put our nation into somewhat uncharted waters.
Abraham Lincoln warned of such a time.
So did Benjamin Franklin.
Teddy Roosevelt tried “Trust Busting” – breaking up monopolistic practices which Thomas Jefferson had also warned against. MHProNews has told readers for years that trust-busting, anti-trust, anti-monopoly action was needed.
The Creepy Line video MHProNews first shared with readers some two years ago is coming true right before our very eyes. The teaser is above, the full length documentary is below. If you’ve not seen it, do so. Because this is arguably part of what occurred in the run-up to the 2020 election. It continues now.
We at MHProNews and MHLivingNews will plan to continue to shed what light on these larger issues while still maintaining our efforts to promote a proper understanding of manufactured housing and why it is so misunderstood.
That misunderstanding, we’ve said, is arguably no accident. The powers that be that dominant our industry in various ways dominates America and other nations too. Big business in America is in bed with Communists in China.
It is good vs evil. Godliness and Constitutionally protected values vs diabolical threats to Liberty and Freedom.
The powers of darkness have not just suddenly just swept over America. When Fox News some weeks ago tried to keep former House Speaker Newt Gingrich from taking about George Soros, that was a big warning sign of where we are today.
There are numerous topics of value below, but please set aside the time and don’t miss the in depth Saturday report below. Also check out today’s Postscript.
With no further adieu, let’s turn to the headlines and topics from the week that was from 11.1 to 11.8.2020.
What’s New from Washington, D.C. from MHARR
What’s New on MHLivingNews
The Latest on the Masthead
What’s New on the Daily Business News on MHProNews
Just days ago, we used the quote, ‘it is going to get worse before it gets better.’
We routinely state a prudential mantra, in each case citing those quoted, pay more attention to what people do than to what they say. Follow the evidence. Consider the patterns and history. Follow the money.
We will plan a special Masthead soon on the for a clearer understanding of how faith and freedom are inextricably interwoven. Watch for it.
Do not buy into the lies. It will be tempting. Misinformation and pressure to conform will be all around you. With God alone, we have enough to prevail.
President Trump is a fighter. An intelligence source with ties to President Trump has hinted that their may well have been a trap to allow the billionaires, their big tech and big media allies to overplay their hand. They might – perhaps – be falling into a trap.
Time will tell. But for a variety of reasons, we don’t think the Trump Family led by President Trump will quit. Might he lose? It’s possible. But might he win? If he does, watch out. Those enemies of his and our still free Republic may find themselves in deep trouble.
Pray like it all depends on God. Then act like you can make a difference. You can. That can be as simple as informing others by sharing what you find here.
Labor Pains are upon America. Will a big brother billionaire-funded socialism be thrust upon us, under the guise of a purportedly corrupt Sleepy Joe and his leftist partner Senator Harris (CA-D)?
Or will we go through a trial and possible re-birth? Can we emerge as a stronger Republic that better understands the Liberty and Responsibilities that God has given us?
Freedom is never free. One way or another, we are witnessing – and in the midst of – a new birth. Darkness and Light are clashing. It is a time of choosing and a time of action.
Please ask and always seek the honest answer, what is the right and Godly thing to do? Choose whatever is the good. Seek and follow the Light which alone dispels the darkness. Do so for love of family and friends. Do it for love of faith, flag, and country. Amen?
