Traitors Everywhere

Society is full of traitors. The Republicans are traitors. The Democrats are traitors. Behind every bush there’s a turncoat or sniveling coward prepared to sell out his country for fame, fear, or funds. Today, I focus on the Republican scoundrels who infest the halls of government. 

In my first article of 2023, tiled “You Can’t Trust Anyone, Except. . .”, I railed against politicians on both pretend sides of the uniparty political Establishment. I said: 

“In politics, you can’t trust anyone. Survey the political landscape as 2022 fades into the past and who do you see that stands out as a beacon of truth, light, and trustworthiness? Who is a true leader? President Trump? President Bolsonaro? Zionist Netanyahu? Tsar Putin? Emperor Xi? Befuddled Biden? Governor DeSantis? Senator Rand Paul? 

“There’s not a single man in politics in any nation whom I trust implicitly. There’s no George Washington, John Adams, or Thomas Jefferson to lead from the front with honor; no man that everyone looks up to and can trust. The dearth of real leaders, manly men, and steeled patriots is deafening and is one of the chief reasons we are plunging into the abyss of corruption and chaos. . . . 

“I don’t know how many times I’ve heard people gush that President Trump was the greatest president ever. Ever? Better than George Washington? Better than John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison? Better than Andrew Jackson? None of those great men retreated from danger or fled when things got rough. They risked their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor to literally fight the enemy and rebel against tyranny. Not Trump, Bolsonaro, or anyone else I’ve seen on the national level has the conviction, inner fire, and integrity to do say, “Give me liberty or give me death!” and really mean it. At least, they haven’t proven their words by deeds.  

“It’s up to us to lead ourselves and keep the Revolution going, not to wait for a mortal savior. No white knight on his noble steed is coming to rescue us. There is no George Washington this time; he already showed us the way to go. Our self-appointed “heroes” have failed us. We must each take up the mantle of leadership and do our part. We must make the same covenant that our forefathers made; namely, to “mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor” with a “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.”” 

My words have been confirmed. With pressure from the politically ignorant and petulantly stubborn Donald Trump who has a history of supporting and surrounding himself with Establishment cronies who undermine him at every turn, Matt Gaetz and the other turncoat Republicans relinquished their opposition to Establishment shill Kevin McCarthy, who will now be the new Speaker of the House. J.D. Rucker reported: 

“14 failures will taint Kevin McCarthy’s reign as Speaker of the House. . . . 

“Nevertheless, he was finally voted in as Speaker after enough of the final holdouts voted “present.” Matt Gaetz had upended the 14th vote that was supposed to be McCarthy’s anointing, but caved for the 15th. 

“It even looked like it might turn violent when Congressman Mike Rogers had to be restrained as he headed toward Gaetz after the 14th failure. 

“After Andy Biggs and Lauren Boebert both voted “present,” it turned to Gaetz as the next holdout. He voted “present” again, which pretty much sealed the deal for McCarthy. The remain three members of the final six opposition Republicans all voted present. That left McCarthy with 216 votes. With the six votes of “present” and one member not voting, McCarthy needed 215.” 

All that was required to prevent McCarthy from taking the gavel was for one person to say, “no.” Instead, these ostensibly stalwart “conservatives” voted “present,” allowing the one they have said would be a disaster for the country to take over. Despicable. Cowardly. Treasonous. 

Yes, I call out Matt Gaetz, Lauren Boebert, Andy Biggs, Eli Crane, Bob Good, and Matt Rosendale for voting “present,” allowing this loss for the Republic and for the American People. I also call out the following so-called “conservatives” who flipped their vote to support McCarthy at the last moment: Dan Bishop, Josh Brecheen, Michael Cloud, Andrew Clyde, Byron Donalds, Paul Gosar, Andy Harris, Anna Paulina Luna, Mary Miller, Ralph Norman, Andy Ogles, Scott Perry, Chip Roy, Keith Self, and Victoria Spartz. I include Marjorie Taylor Greene – a rising star in the party – for publicly condemning the holdouts and calling their opposition to McCarthy “drama” that must end. She also voted for McCarthy and pantingly tried, by means of pro-McCarthy Donald Trump, to convince other holdouts to cave to the Establishment. 

Every damn one of them is a traitor and a disgrace to the nation. Not one of them can ever be trusted again to keep their word. Most Republicans are worthless, and you can’t expect much from them, but these are big names in the so-called “conservative” faction. Conservative? Hardly! They’re Establishment sellouts like the rest of them. They’ve proven this by actions – by their fruits ye shall know them. 

These lying turncoats will likely claim they put up a good fight and did their best to stop McCarthy. Bull. They didn’t have the fortitude or honesty to honor their word and hold out. They gave up. They surrendered. They mock thee other more obviously Establishment Republicans as the “surrender caucus,” but they have now joined its ranks. Traitors, every last one of them. 

Here’s how America’s enemies have framed the Republicans permitting McCarthy to take the reins. Russian state media RT reported

“While McCarthy lost out on the 14th vote on Friday night and the House appeared to be headed into the weekend without a speaker, Republicans pressed for yet another ballot in a last-minute decision. After gaining the support of more than a dozen fellow GOP members who had voted for other candidates, the California lawmaker finally secured a majority vote in the early hours of Saturday morning. 

“Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida was the sole GOP member standing in McCarthy’s way before the final vote, leading a group of 20 insurgent Republicans under the pro-Trump Freedom Caucus during this week’s speaker votes. The lawmakers argued that McCarthy is too willing to capitulate to Democrats and represents years of bad policy-making, obstructing him from taking the speaker position for four days of balloting.” 

Even though Gaetz, Greene, Boebert, and the others caved to the Establishment and gave a hearty vote for the swamp, RT still calls them “insurgent.” This is how the enemy sees people who resist their monoparty Establishment. Today, the Gaetzes of the world have proved which side they’re on – and, mark it fellow American, it’s not on our side. 

Chinese communist state media also had this to say about those holdouts who eventually showed their true colors: 

“[T]hose American politicians with extreme political stance are becoming increasingly willing to hijack the interests of the whole party and are able to force the majority or the pro-establishment elites to compromise on almost any issue. 

“This will create more uncertainty in Washington into the future, because there is no strong and reliable political leader, neither US President Joe Biden nor former president Donald Trump or new Speaker McCarthy are able to completely unite their own party or to speak with one voice. In the future, the US internal governance will still be a mess and fail to effectively solve economic and social problems, and its foreign policy may swerve into more chaotic and dangerous areas, experts claimed.” 

Republicans and Democrats do NOT have such virtue.

For once, I agree – no single person in the United States can unite us. There’s no George Washington. Donald Trump is perhaps the closest thing to a unifying force, yet he is a political buffoon who doesn’t comprehend conspiracy or the real threats to the Republic. Trump has shown that he is as clueless in 2023 as he’s ever been about politics. Had he any sense, he would’ve opposed McCarthy and joined the ranks of those the communist Chinese call “extreme.” Instead, Trump remained milk toast, weak, and unwilling to do what must be done – just like he was in 2020 when the nation was being burned down by Marxist thugs and he did nothing but talk about it. 

With Trump’s vocal opposition, McCarthy would not be Speaker of the House today. As it is, the California “Republican” is now third in line for the presidency. With a doddering Biden on the verge of death, and an ineffective vice-president that not even Democrats want as president, a “President McCarthy” is a high possibility. 

In his smug and condescending victory speech, McCarthy invoked Abraham Lincoln. This is an interesting choice since it was Lincoln who finally split the United States in two, unconstitutionally ordered up troops and invaded a sovereign nation, who massively expanded government, and who mangled the U.S. Constitution. I hope to God McCarthy become Lincoln 2.0, though I see America heading into all-out revolution and mobocracy. 

How can we not turn to mobocracy and chaos? Our government is a mob! This was prophesied by an American prophet long ago. Brigham Young, quoting the Prophet Joseph Smith, attested the following in 1861 as Lincoln, whom he called a “cursed scoundrel,” took power and precipitated the total fracture of the Union: 

“The whole government is gone; it is as weak as water. I heard Joseph Smith say nearly thirty years ago, “They shall have mobbings to their hearts’ content, if they do not redress the wrongs of the Latter-day Saints.” Mobs will not decrease but will increase until the whole government becomes a mob, and eventually it will be State against State, city against city, neighborhood against neighborhood” (Brigham Young, May 1, 1861). 

Joseph Smith, who lived in Lincoln’s state at a time when Lincoln was in power, had attempted to redress the wrongs committed against members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which he founded through God’s power, to no avail. Lincoln did nothing. The president of the United States, Martin Van Buren, did nothing. No one did anything. In response, the Prophet foretold what the Lord would do: 

“While discussing the petition to Congress, I prophesied, by virtue of the holy Priesthood vested in me, and in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, that, if Congress will not hear our petition and grant us protection, they shall be broken up as a government, and God shall damn them, and there shall be nothing left of them — not even a grease spot” (Joseph Smith, Millennial Star, Vol. 22, 455). 

Follow me at:

If Joseph Smith was a Prophet, and I testify with all my soul that he is and that he was called of God, then the U.S. government is damned to all eternity. God will break them up. They will become a mob. They will devolve into disorder and destruction. We already see it happening. It happened once when the unpopular persecutor Abraham Lincoln took the presidency, and it will happen again. 

No one will stop what’s coming. There is no George Washington today to stand in the gap and hold back the tide. Trump is weak and panders to the Establishment he outwardly hates. Ron DeSantis, who has done many good things as governor, is sold to certain interests and philosophies that are anathema to true Americanism and has been involved in mandating the teaching of fake history in public schools. Even Senator Rand Paul is, sadly, unlike his father, who was known as “Dr. No” for his penchant to vote “No” on everything. What we need today is precisely that – a man to say “No” and mean it. Not to say “No” fourteen times and then bow to evil on the fifteenth round. Is that what George Washington would’ve done? Of course not! 

We are not like our forefathers. For all their flaws, they were upright and decent folks. They loved their country and their Freedom. They were willing to place their lives on the line to defend their rights. They were willing to shoot their British oppressors (i.e. their own military and government officers). They were also humble enough to petition God for His intervention and divine assistance. 

It was their general righteousness that pulled God’s blessings down in their behalf. Through His divine intervention, America became a free and independent nation. Through His inspiration, the Constitution was born. Through His instrumentality, America was prepared to receive the Restoration of His Gospel and the flood of light, technological advancements, and progress that accompanied it. 

Today, our only remedy is repentance. Politics won’t solve our problems. Trump won’t ride in and save us – he’s oblivious to who the enemies are. No political savior is coming to our rescue. As I wrote before the last rigged election, the madness won’t end. Only the Lord Jesus Christ can intervene to stave off total war and obliteration. 

At this point, however, I think that even He can’t save us at least some profusion of blood and suffering, because we have sinned so much and continue to allow a great Satanic conspiracy to rule over us. We permit fraudulent elections to go unpunished and unanswered. We allow our so-called champion to support the swamp he supposedly wanted to drain. We allow our representatives to fail to represent We the People time and time and time again. We allow oath breakers and liars – the Marjorie Taylor Greenes and Matt Gaetzes of the world – to support us with their words while betraying us with their actions. Because we allow all of this to happen, the fault is, ultimately, our own. And we will reap the whirlwind. 

I don’t support the Republican-Democrat Establishment. It is a vile and tyrannical cabal beholden to even more wicked and devious international interests and ideologies. It’s a den of vipers. It’s home to the children of hell. Today, as most of the leading lights in the “conservative” movement betrayed the American People and took a deep dive into the swamp to elevate McCarthy to higher power, I’m reminded of how intensely I loathe traitors and turncoats. To me, there’s only one rightful response to traitors: Sic Semper Tyrannis! 

It’s long past time for Lexington and Concord 2.0. Patriots, it’s long past time to rebel! “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God.” That was our forefathers’ motto, and it must be ours. Rebellion to tyrants is the American tradition. Are we true Americans or are we pathetic and servile sheep who follow the ravenous wolves to the slaughter? You decide for yourself; it’s clear enough where I stand. 

“The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come. 

“It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace– but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!” – Patrick Henry, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death,” March 23, 1775.
