As the Western “ruling class” begins to tighten its grips and clamp down on those they see as a threat, Big Tech, Woke Corporate Media, and Government are all exercising their full power to bring the hammer down on dissent. This is why on January 27, the Department of Homeland Security issued a new National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin detailing a new and intensified “threat” of “Domestic Violent Extremism” following the Biden inauguration and subsequent weeks.
Here’s what the DHS advisory says.
The Bulletin reads:
The Acting Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin due to a heightened threat environment across the United States, which DHS believes will persist in the weeks following the successful Presidential Inauguration. Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.
The Bulletin doesn’t provide any actual evidence of the impending or potential attacks but it does go into some detail as to the type of attacks or violence that might be expected, the political ideologies behind those acts of violence as well as the targets.
The Bulletin states:
- Throughout 2020, Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs) targeted individuals with opposing views engaged in First Amendment-protected, non-violent protest activity. DVEs motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities.
- Long-standing racial and ethnic tension—including opposition to immigration—has driven DVE attacks, including a 2019 shooting in El Paso, Texas that killed 23 people.
- DHS is concerned these same drivers to violence will remain through early 2021 and some DVEs may be emboldened by the January 6, 2021 breach of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. to target elected officials and government facilities.
- DHS remains concerned that Homegrown Violent Extremists (HVEs) inspired by foreign terrorist groups, who committed three attacks targeting government officials in 2020, remain a threat.
- Threats of violence against critical infrastructure, including the electric, telecommunications and healthcare sectors, increased in 2020 with violent extremists citing misinformation and conspiracy theories about COVID-19 for their actions.
- DHS, as well as other Federal agencies and law enforcement partners will continue to take precautions to protect people and infrastructure across the United States.
- DHS remains committed to preventing violence and threats meant to intimidate or coerce specific populations on the basis of their religion, race, ethnicity, identity or political views.
- DHS encourages state, local, tribal, and territorial homeland security partners to continue prioritizing physical security measures, particularly around government facilities, to protect people and critical infrastructure.
While the majority of ideological positions allegedly poised to commit an act of violence are geared to the right, it is important to notice that some are traditionally associated with the left as well. In other words, it seems DHS is worried about anyone not overwhelmingly pleased with the government’s recent performances on Constitutional rights, immigration, or police brutality.
The Bulletin follows up by encouraging citizens to report “suspicious activity” to the FBI, local law enforcement, or their nearest Fusion center.
This bulletin is particularly concerning considering the fact that the US government is attempting to pass the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021, which I wrote in one of my last articles is essentially the criminalization of speech, expression, and thought. It takes cancel culture a step further and all but outlaws unpopular opinions. This act will empower intelligence, law enforcement, and even military wings of the American ruling class to crack down on individuals adhering to certain belief systems and ideologies.
Not everyone in Congress thinks half the country is a domestic terrorist.
Recently, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard expressed her opposition to the bill by pointing out that it essentially criminalizes half the country. She said,
“It’s so dangerous as you guys have been talking about, this is an issue that all Democrats, Republicans, independents, Libertarians should be extremely concerned about, especially because we don’t have to guess about where this goes or how this ends,” Gabbard said.
She continued: “When you have people like former CIA Director John Brennan openly talking about how he’s spoken with or heard from appointees and nominees in the Biden administration who are already starting to look across our country for these types of movements similar to the insurgencies they’ve seen overseas, that in his words, he says make up this unholy alliance of religious extremists, racists, bigots, he lists a few others and at the end, even libertarians.”
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Make no mistake, the new DHS bulletin is just the tip of the iceberg as we move forward into the Brave New World of criminalizing speech, expression, and even thought. Unfortunately, there are masses of Americans who willingly march right along the path to total enslavement, all the while claiming they are the freest nation on the face of the earth.
What are your thoughts on this bulletin? Is there an actual threat of “domestic violent extremist terror?” Do you feel that investigative efforts will be focused on in an unbiased fashion or that there will be political targets? Let’s discuss it in the comments.
About Robert Wheeler
Robert Wheeler has been quietly researching the world events for two decades. After witnessing the global network of NGOs and several ‘Revolutions’ they engineered in a number of different countries, Wheeler began analyzing current events through these lenses.
Ideologically motivated violent extremists have been at work ever since St. George of Fentanyl shuffled off this mortal coil. But I guess they weren’t extreme enough. Now Joe and Daisy Taxpayer have to get lumped in with them, on the off chance they don’t like SloJoe’s action to bring down western civilization.
Am I the only one who finds it amusing that the acronym for these dastardly folks is HVES, which my mind interprets as the “HAVES”?
And what about last year? It seems there was quite a lot of “Domestic Violent Extremist Terrorism” last year. Where was their concern then?
There was no concern because they were behind it.
I see “HIVES”.
You mean the mostly peaceful “Summer of Love”?
Lol, BLM is nominated for Nobel Peace for thier fiery mostly peaceful protest…Price…wwwcnn.com/2021/02/01/us/black-lives-matter-movement-nobel-peace-prize-trnd/index.html
Meh it’s a knee jerk reaction after the capitol event to put out a bulletin, mark it LEO only then immediately release it to the press. It’s just a day that ends in Y.
Yeah we are all getting “labeled” but this started years ago in the O regime when we got labeled for being all scary veterans.
It’ll continue and everyone will all be enemies of the state which is what the some want. It’s easier to control which is the end goal
Actually it started well before O’s regime, probably in early 1920’s when commies were sprouting in USA, infiltrating politics where they could be seen, and not noticed in education where they reformed American’s thinking to reject liberty and want socialism. Their goal is still facism following widespread acceptance of liberalistic socialism, which we are certainly seeing today. I’m reminded of Ps 32, wherein The Lord answers King David following his confession of sins: 8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. 9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. A large number of Americans have totally and forcibly rejected v. 8 as well as the admonition in v. 9 by declaring their sovereignty over God and gone unbridled in their thoughts and acceptance of Godly education and living standards. That goes for left-wing libtards as well as right-wing so-called sovereign individuals. There should be no extreme “left” or “right”; Americans should only live willingly and lovingly under God. When all the self admiration is done, God’s will will prevail.
Should not be a shock that millennials exalt the glorious tenants of socialism, when the public schools & colleges are infiltrated with radical communist proffessors.
I worked for TSA and DHS for 13 years. This is not the first time folks on the right have been targeted. I was in a meeting and the supervisor read memo’s from HQ. We were warned that Gun Rights advocates were to be treated as suspicious. I rsised hell and they sorta backed off that, but HQ did not change the memo.
This was just after two cops in West Memphis were killed by criminals. Father And son were the killers.
Sammy Lee,stop lieing,that father and son were defending them selves from SATANS MINIONS who were after them..and it won’t be long and the RUSSIANS will be after all you devils…and we’ll help them get you…
Ahhh the Arizona sovereign citizen arises
Of course its true. As we get further and further away from our fellow Americans, we see these divides turning in to perceived attacks on our liberties. The fringe elements of all sides of the political spectrum start to step in to the light. For every antifa there is a corresponding white nationalist. Both sides say that they are only there to protect us from the other side, but one begats the other until there is no one left in the center to protect. News media also plays a role in scaring us to believe that a certain faction is evil or trying to take away your rights. But again, its the sites that are seen as while not quite fringe, but is seen as heavily biased. CNN is equal to OAN in their bias. They are just on opposite sides of the liberal conservative line. MSN is equal to Newsmax. Huff Post is equal to Breitbart. The media used to have only ne rule, to inform us of the news. But now they have realized that they can make money, then they choose to do that over being newsworthy and trustworthy. We need to take counsel of our fears and not fear those around us. Yes there are players out there that wish us harm, but its not one sided. We need to break free of those who say they are our friends yet want to drive us further in to their fantasies and beliefs.Just because a spokesman from our favorite channel says something, take it with a grain of truth and research it using our brains to verify the truth. We may find that spokesman is false and doing it for profit.
If the government didn’t lie so much, conspiracy theories wouldn’t be formed. Sometimes it is embarrassing what the government tells us when the truth is so obvious. I’m sure it started before this, but my first incident was that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the shooting (if he even did it) of JFK. Hiding the Warren Commission report for 50 or 100 years (I forget which, but it must be 100 because it hasn’t to my knowledge been released yet) did nothing to convince anybody that the truth had been told.
So now the government is saying that if you know or suspect that we are lying to you and dare say anything about it, we will hunt you down and take you out of circulation because catching us in a lie is detrimental to our plans.
The Constitution – Every Issue, every time. No exceptions, no excuses!
This is larger than most seem to understand. There is a world-wide revolution beginning and the lines are drawn between the Globalist/Communists and the Sovereign Citizens – Sovereign States.

Great article that you wrote!!
Thanks for sharing the link and I will be popping over to check out this site more often!
They’re scared. Why? It’s simply a matter of numbers. The events of January 6th, proved that a determined Mass of sufficient size can breach security measures. Had there been a large enough and determined group, even the 30,000 troops brought in for the Installation (not an Inauguration), could have easily been overwhelmed as well. Sure, there would have been lives lost, but in the end Mass will still win. Factor in that a significant percentage of the Mass could/ would be armed as well. It all depends on how determined/dedicated the Mass is.
Our Civil Liberties are under the most egregious assault in our history, by the political elitests. Where this will end, it’s a guess. Either we’ll bow to the oppression, or overthrow it. My best guess is that at some point we’ll say no more.
Civil War is coming because the division has deepened and widened past the point of compromise. Common ground is shrinking, and the authoritarianism of the present administration is only going to erode common ground further.
BB – you speak truth. I think most of us just want to be left alone. I have a wonderful family, wonderful husband, beautiful grandchildren, and a safe home. I work hard at my job. I don’t ask for handouts. I don’t want gov “taking care of me”. I don’t need or want it. I fear that we will get it whether we want it or not tho.
There is unpleasantness involving guns every few months or so. The goal of the state is to set the narrative to lubricate the skids for the next set of liberties to be stripped from you. The legislation is in the desk and just needs to be dusted of off for “the event” which will occur presently.
We did not have an Election in 2020, it was a Coup by the Radical Left/Domestic Enemies of The Republic. Joke BiteMe was not elected, he was “installed” by fraud. We no longer live in a Free Republic, we are now “The Occupied United States of America”.
Rush, Hannity, Levin, and Bongino did not stop Bill Clinton or Obama getting elected TWICE, nor did they stop this Coup. It is time for action!
If you try to cage a free animal, most likely it will resist. If you try to cage a Free People, they will resist.

NOW- in all sorts of ways gman. MAGA= Mobile Asymmetrical Guerilla Army.
I’m stealing this line. Thank you.
Hang’em, hang them high! According to our laws for the TREASONOUS.
Everybody who might care was warned for years by people like me that the below radar Democrat Marxist juggernaut would make Nazi Germany look like a girl scout barbecue if all their political power ducks ever got in a row. Well, guess what? this happened while everybody became too apathetic to care anymore, too ‘B&B’d (brainwashed and bribed with welfare and food stamps and now stimulus cash) or too downtrodden by economic and social pressures to worry too much about it, and certainly not do much about it. They used food to bribe us and they’ll use scarcity of supply to control us. And with the CCP helping out immensely in the final stretch. (“Stealth War, by Robert Spaulding. ‘China’s silent takeover while America’s elite Slept’)
I also predicted in the past that all those Molon Labeyers were wasting their time getting pumped on letting their stuff ‘pried from their cold dead hands’ when they should be using all that energy to instead help the Constitutional Freedom parties to prevent this tyranny from every getting a foothold where they can destroy our American Constitution and kill our precious liberties without restraint or accountability by owning the entire goverment law making system.
Everybody kept saying that there can’t be a dictatorial rights-violating G because of so many armed citizens who the government fears? I told them that was a pipe dream. And they were watching too many re-runs of youtube FICTION!
The government sure didn’t fear We the people when they literally brought Division strength Military locked and loaded Troops to defend their rapidly secured fortress ‘headquarters’ in Washington merely for any perceived threat of mob violence at the inauguration?
Nary a single Armchair Ranger, let alone any contingency of massive demonstrations promised by republican organizations and voters, maintained or even a whisper of a protest in the face of such a strong show of government power and force.
Seriously, folks, by now everybody, even rank and file democrat voters, should know how badly it’s going to continue to go from here on in. The writing on the wall is now a flashing, strobing, flood-lighted glaring sign! ‘They’ don’t even have to think too hard for a power-plan. Dinesh D’Sousa points it out in his new book “the United States of Socialism’ where he details the Model they’ll follow for totalitarian conclusion. You won’t like it, but it worked pretty quickly for the country that recently did it.
We had 4 years with Trump to make sure Communism would not prevail in America, and we, the people, didn’t help to optimize his effort. We thought it was fun to watch The merciless, incessant attack on his efforts to work for us, and our liberties.
The only chance we have left, is the one our visionary Framers left us. The right to change government by peaceful political remand. This simply takes concentrated personal efforts and contributions to a common political goal. NOT bullshit belly-aching threats and flawed emotional reactions.
Everybody immediately channell yourself to get on your Republican and even Democratic Senate Representatives and politely let them know that if they don’t vote NOT guilty next week for Trump that you and anybody else you can persuade and convince will vote for their opponent at their next election.
That’s the only effective way that We, the people, can now do our Constitutional duty and change our consented management.
Otherwise we can eat shit—because they’ll intentionally restrict food resources–and die.
If my USAF fighter pilot father could not shut me up, I seriously doubt if anyone else can.
I’m 71 and feisty.
I’m highly not tech, so forgive the goof above.
by “commit to violence” they mean “not do what we say”.
Right, or “disbelieve our constant stream of lies and notice our blatant hypocrisy.”
Are there extremists out there?
Sure. Both on the left and the right.
Good news is, most are kooks with delusions of grandeur and cannot spell their way out of a paper bag. Some how, their act of whatever will inspire the people to rise up and blah-blah-blah.
Unfortunately there are those few and far in between that can and do horrific things. That idiot McVeigh comes to mind.
The real question is what are they going to profile as a HVE?
Trump voter? Some think that alone is enough to be deemed a HVE.
Fly the Gadsden flag?
The American flag?
Be pro-1stA or 2ndA?
Use the word liberty? Facebook banned Ron Paul (of all people). I think he used the word “liberty” too much.
Come up with your own opinion that goes against the MSM narrative, aka conspiracy theory?
Believe in the need to be self-reliant or resilient?
Use non-Big Tech social platforms?
Then there is the question of whom is reading through various reports, making the decisions of what is dangerous activity?
Are they truly objective in their assessment?
Or allowing their bias to make their decisions? Recall IRS Agent Lois Lerner who denied conservative groups tax-exempt status? What does a government agency full of people like that look like? Something like Orwell’s 1984.
Was there a real, viable threat at the inauguration? At all the state Capitols?
Or are some politicians taking advantage of the situation to further their own agenda?
What I do know, there are some who are turning the FUD up to 11.
“Fly the Gadsden flag?
The American flag?
Be pro-1stA or 2ndA?
Use the word liberty? Facebook banned Ron Paul (of all people). I think he used the word “liberty” too much.
Come up with your own opinion that goes against the MSM narrative, aka conspiracy theory?
Believe in the need to be self-reliant or resilient?
Use non-Big Tech social platforms?”
see, the goal is not to find HVE. the goal is to find anyone who is 1) not them and 2) not under their direct and total control. the goal is not to find who is doing certain things. the goal is to find anyone who IS certain things.
“Then there is the question of whom is reading through various reports, making the decisions of what is dangerous activity?”
no-one. it will all be automated – computer parsed and collated and categorized and ranked for action by designated authorities notified by auto-generated email directives. “this is your list for today. reply with number of completed objectives by COB.” think soviet union KGB, automated.
Seems to be a lot on here that are spreading the fear and nonsense as well. The rhetoric is increasingly hostile to the government. Remember that most Americans and most who work for the government (not those who change every 4-8 years) are hard working patriots in this country. Then there are those who seem to want to pass along some bs that they heard on their favorite TV show or by their favorite TV hosts whose motives are in doubt. Research what was said by going outside your normal news sites to find out what is the truth. Otherwise if you just push along with you heard, then you are part of the problem.
I beg to disagree. I am consultant in environmental field. A very small cog. But I can tell you that the graft and incompetence is real. No, they are NOT patriots, sir. They are are out for themselves, and love to say “we are the government”
“DHS remains committed to preventing violence and threats meant to intimidate or coerce specific populations on the basis of their religion, race, ethnicity, identity or political views.” This just says it all! Should we read the last 2 words as “political views we don’t agree with”?!
Who are these freaks?! We have to take them down.
“Should we read the last 2 words as ‘political views we don’t agree with’?!”
or more accurately, “anyone who isn’t us or controlled by us”.
This is like everything else they do –
They reject science but call everyone else “anti-science.”
They’re racist against whites and Asians, but label anyone who disagrees with them “racists.”
And they are 100% for violent government and the wars of the major parties, and for forcing their beliefs upon you, and having everything they want to do to you enforced at gunpoint if necessary –
And they label YOU violent. They have the most violent belief system on earth, that of statism.
Statism apparently makes people lie about absolutely everything.
SADLY all of america are dumbed down morons,THEIR country is GONE,do they see it,NO,they don’t, OBAMA divided up america and sold EVERYTHING,the Russians and chinese were buying,the butt lickers were so busy sucking they never looked up to see what this devil was doing,ALL the rules have been broken by the hero’s of america,the police gangs,military,government agencies,even the states,counties,and cities,THE RUSSIANS AND CHINESE ARE HERE,and it ain’t on a visit,or tour..THEIR picking out the best spots for themselves and their families..AND YOUR HERO’S THE POLICE GANGS AND MILITARY are going to hand it to them on a silver plate..after they kill the blind fools who owned it…THATS YOU DUMB SHITS,keep sucking,it won’t save you….
Arizona, you’re nuts! Get yourself some help!
Let’s see if you DHS punks can fight…
put you punks up against seasoned veteran Patriots
watch you punks find out how real History is made
By the way, there is no accommodation in the Constitution for a “Department of Homeland Security.” DHS is listening too way much to the FBI, Southern Poverty Law Center, ADL, and the Muslim Brotherhood. They are pointing to YOU as a terrorist when they should be looking in a mirror at themselves. But that’s the state of the Disunited States of anti-America today. Trust no one!
Actually, my friend, there is NO constitutional authority for ANY armed federal police force to operate anywhere in the United States–only on the International Borders, U.S. Territories and Protectorates.
DHS is like Chicken Little, believing that the sky is falling after getting hit in the head by an acorn.
The only “Ideologically-motivated violent extremists” who could “mobilize to…commit violence” are government under-cover agents and their paid informants.
Everyone else is busy working and taking care of their home and family. Their organizing is limited to bake sales, soccer practice, and the occasional PTA meeting. They are not about to do anything that will risk home, career, or family, and DHS and congress know that. But they need a convenient group to demonize to get more power, more taxes, and more appropriations.
1984 begins to feel more like a reality show than futuristic fiction.
Here is an example of the violent extremism DHS is worried about:
Banana bread bomb scare causes rise in Mount Vernon:
Around 4 p.m. Sunday, police officers in Mount Vernon responded to a call about two suspicious packages at Phillips Park.
They were wrapped in tin foil, located on the table underneath the pavilion. The caller spotted them while walking on the Kokosing Gap Trail.
For the next three hours, as snow blanketed the city and rumors swirled online, an investigation ensued. The Columbus Division of Police bomb squad was called in, including a K-9 unit, and detectives conducted an x-ray analysis.
In the end, however, the packages were found to be far more delicious than deadly; far more scrumptious than sinister.They were, in fact, two loaves of banana bread.
Sheep will be sheep…it’s what they do.
Yeah, there’s a mess of violent extremists. They’re called CCP, Antifa and BLM. Deepstaters gonna hate, I guess.
“Ideologically-motivated violent extremists” ?
As opposed to the “payment-motivated violent extremists”, who are sponsored by the radical left?
You know, the ones they bus around the country to cause trouble, like at the Capital last month.
Unfortunately most of the violence and threats of violence have come from the right (and no, the left isn’t innocent) so those groups and individuals on the right will be the primary focus of the FBI and others. If the goal is to interrupt or stop violence, then I would support the effort. When you are threatening to shoot people, you’re going too far.
Did you sleep through last summer’s riots?
“Did you sleep through last summer’s riots?”
no, he cheered them.
Allegedly from the “right”. These people on the “left” have already proven themselves to be liars and manipulators of the facts where it comes to their enemies.
Now, right wing conservatives are the enemy. Tomorrow, when conservatives are already in the “reeducation camps”, it will be someone else’s turn to be persecuted.
When a public figure and formerly respected journalist such as Katie Couric publicly calls for anyone to be sent to “reeducation camps” for “deprogramming”…her exact words, btw… and no one calls her out as a wacko or asks for her being censured or given a psychological exam, every American is in acute danger.
Because it is now accepted as a valid option.
We have children informing on parents, neighbors dropping a dime on the guy next door.
We are living in the beginning of the Fourth Reich.
Daisy – why am I always in “moderation “? I am a little older…maybe I don’t understand…
For some reason your IP address didn’t whitelist when I approved previous comments. I’ll try and get that fixed but it’s absolutely nothing personal, just a weird little glitch.
I guess elections have consequences–especially when they’ve been stolen. In the meantime, make sure you’re never the first to stop clapping…
We ceased to be a representative democratic republic 1.6.21. We are something else now. Talking about constitution this or threats that is really so 5 minutes ago. It’s a free for all now with no expectation of protection from law either from your neighbor or the state.
I often give the example that in Mexico, if there is a car accident the affected parties will work it out on the spot, but if the siren of local security forces is heard everyone disperses including those that are innocent in the accident.
That is where we are. What the state is saying is not relevant, assume it’s just lies, but what is relevant is why they are saying it.
Embrace the suck.
I think the DHS is a few weeks too late- Biden and his regime have already taken over, and have fortified their positions with thousands of NG (i.e., “No Good”) troops and high barriers.
Domestic Terrorists behavior like riots and destruction and death of Antifa and BLM for example. Oh, sorry those are approved leftist Domestic Terrorists!
“Extremism’ is a word deliberately chosen for its vagueness and used by intellectual slobs who are too desperate, sneaky or lazy to say exactly what they mean. Its only purpose is to deliberately try to confuse the difference between people who are extremely good (usually because of devotion to their principles) with people who are extremely bad. The sleazeballs who use this supposedly scary, yet undefined word are not only trying to smear people of conviction and integrity, but they’re also trying to divert attention away from the fact that they are obviously not people of principle themselves.” ~ Rick Gaber
And Canada just classified the Proud Boys as a terrorist group.
The right wingers are now enemies of the state, persona non grata.
They are not calling anarchist, Atifa/ blm, communists, treasonous politician as terrorist, no they mean us, we have become the ” Enemy” in thier demented paranoid minds. Those who love what America once was free, conservatives, patriots, veterans, christians..they have openly called for deprograming of those who dared to vote for Trump. Any question what thier “Fun camps” deprogram might mean, let me refresh your memory, Ottis Wambier who was detained by N. Korea. China has been brutal to thier own citizens.
I read this with troubled heart, we are all Americans, I am not a fool and I believe that this is all part of “The Great Reset”. However, I would hope we all can do what we have to do without hate in our heart and blood in our eye. I have seen enough broken bodies and death in my life and have no desire to see more. That being said there is a very small, minute percent of people causing trouble on both sides, it seems we all forget that. The majority of people in this country are right around the middle. Most of us want the same things and they are not that complicated. I believe what we are seeing is the result of years of planning and undermining. I understand everyones frustration and anger and the need to be able to strike out at something. Just make sure if you strike, it is against the the cause not the effect. I am hesitant to go against any American an I hope you are too. I am also skeptical towards anyone preaching hate and division. We have enough of that already and I don’t believe it will help anything going on. I prefer to believe this can be solved by us coming together not breaking each other apart. A good part of what is going on is because of bad information from fake news. We should all remember that when we are considering anything right now.
I fear the message given to “us” and “them” is being blown out of proportion and the news is really doing a good job at helping it along. I don’t even trust the right wing news anymore as I don’t like what they are not telling everyone. I was a religious person for most of my life and had things happen the changed that. Do not get me wrong I have a very firm belief in God and Christ, it is just religion I have a problem with. I think I pray now more than ever in my life maybe because there is so much to pray about.
I grew up in Cleveland in the 60’s I saw and was in riots. I know we have made progress because I have lived it. I have been on the rioter side and on the cop side and I didn’t really like either. Like most of you I did what I had to do at the time I had to do it.
I guess what I am trying to say is that if we lose our souls in the name of freedom, justice and the American way do we really deserve either?
God bless, protect and guide us all.
