Dear Sister – Part II

ooz,                                                                               17Oct2022

I started writing this last we spoke, intending to continue to address some of the issues you expressed. This is as far as I got. I added some at the end to hopefully kind of “wrap it up.”

You suggested getting other eyes on it so I’ve asked a professional who’s agreed to provide an assessment. Naturally if you have any last words please share, just email me.


Taking this off of WhatsApp, the last I said was “You bring parry & thrust upon yourself. You have no capacity to self-reflect, admit mistake or have a normal conversation without invoking your need to psychoanalyze every. single. thing. under the sun.”

I take it back, you’ve made more concessions than I have, if I’ve made any. I regret I didn’t more quickly realize the disconnect in our distinctly different perceptions of Individual Liberty. If I had, we probably could have avoided the whole “You lost me at “Well, no one I know would credit right-wing thinking with individual liberty…” conversation. Btw, I won’t mind being perceived as a Victorian novel writer if you won’t mind me characterizing your confusing language  as Shakespearean. Call me Victoria, I’ll call you Bill. Lol

You say it’s all just honest inquiry, but you use words and phrases like “moral high ground, bitter dialogue, misplaced scorn, spin. Again, it doesn’t even begin to resemble who I am.

It seems you keep putting me into a box of your own making, without fail, nearly every time we talk.

I would answer some of your specific questions about EPA regs & asbestos, but honestly I don’t know anything about them. I’m sure I’m avoiding researching them as a protest, because I can’t imagine why such relatively small issues, against much larger, looming issues of the day are important enough to sour some long overdue chat.

To name a few, mass global genocide, recession and looming economic collapse, mass inflation brought on by a manufactured virus and the ensuing ban on known, FDA-approved, cheap and effective life-saving meds by our entire medical community, government and mainstream media, a wide open border exponentially increasing child & human sex trafficking and fentanyl deaths in the US, the destruction of our food supply, deliberate choking of the supply chain, mass political corruption and a corpse at the helm egging on a nuclear shootout, impoverishing billions by spending trillions on a “climate crisis”.  Even the Center for Atmospheric Research has said after spending trillions and observing all the then Kyoto protocols, in 50 years, we might be able to reduce the earth’s temperature by 7/100th of 1 degree. 

None of this was occurring under President Trump. Highest GDP, lowest unemployment, no wars, energy independence, 400% increase in Black business startups, low fentanyl deaths, massive decrease in sex trafficking and on and on. He was the stopgap, and that’s why he needed to be defeated, even with blatant election fraud.

Seems clear to me the WEF et al are putting their plans into high gear to collapse the world economy and spiral us into their vocal plan to depopulate the planet to 500,000. They attempted to demolish the American financial center in 2001, and it suffered a setback when Trump was elected. He and Putin are not really down with the plan and neither am I. 

All these things look a lot like biblical signs of the endtimes, and I just want to be counted among “those who endure to the end.”
(Matt 24:13)

So ended my thoughts, then.  You have clearly expressed your desire to know why we are so different, and as you’ve testified to a peaceable life with essentially everyone but me, I often wonder why you spend what I think is an inordinate amount of time analyzing it, which only seems to cause you anguish.

It seems simple to me, but you’ve apparently rejected my explanation, as your analyses would go on and on as long as I will allow it. 

We simply have different belief systems. I believe God, through Jesus Christ is the all-powerful, ever-living, ever-loving Creator.  I couldn’t begin to describe yours. THAT is the Big Disconnect.

I believe God is Truth, and through His indwelling, Truth is revealed to me. That those truths (what you might call my reality) are often considered absurd to you, worries me because I am reminded of the scripture that says “For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
1Cor 1:18)

I also believe God is Light. From my daily devotional:

Establishing the dawn of the first day into the “formless and empty” earth (Genesis 1:2) God spoke His first words recorded in Scripture: “Let there be light” (v3). These words were filled with creative power. He spoke, and what He declared came into existence (Psalm 33:6,9). God said, “let there be light” and so it was.  His words produced immediate victory as darkness and chaos gave way to the brilliance of light and order.

There’s plenty of darkness and chaos in the world, but my life in Christ is characterized by light and order. I’m sorry I’ve made reference to darkness and demons in your life, but the opposite of light is darkness, and they sure don’t get more opposite than the two of us!
But as I’ve said before, I believe demons are real and even fuck with the best of us. If it were me, I’d start walking then keep on walking toward the Light.

And I believe God is Wisdom.

 We all want to live wisely in life, but do you ever get overwhelmed with how many different perspectives are out there? From money to work to friendships, we drown in countless opinions on the best way to live.

The Bible offers a simple solution to our predicament. James 1:5 says
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God.”  God’s wisdom isn’t just another perspective among many: it’s the ultimate truth. God knows the best way His creation should live
to flourish.

Since I have no greater desire than to be guided and directed by the wisdom and love of God, and you reject the God of the Bible, we’re simply not compatible.

Naturally it’s not that simple because I want the same for you.

So my prayer is that you have CS Lewis moment and no matter how hard you try to hide, you surrender and find that impending doom is in reality God’s Glorious Light.

You know, if you ever actually decide to take a step in that direction, you could pipe in some Christian music. I listen to it daily, free on Pandora. It’s uplifting and praise music always helps me get closer to the Light.  I love For King & Country, Danny Gokey, Lauren Daigle, MercyMe, Casting Crowns, and Zach Williams & Dolly Parton sing a great tune called There Was Jesus.

Love you ~

Step into the light of Grace
Say goodbye to where you’ve been and tell your heart to beat again

Tell your heart to beat again

What Do Democrats Fear in Donald Trump? Greatness

by JB Shurk
American Thinker
18 Jan 2020

James Carville says Trump is the greatest threat to America since the fall of communism.   It is easy to laugh away such a declaration, but I think there is an invaluable truth expressed.  Trump is as important in stature as the United States’ most formidable military and political opponent of the twentieth century.  Trumpism as an ideological force has the mass and acceleration of a Soviet Empire that threatened to conquer the world.  Nobody speaks about the Bush Doctrine in such terms.   Nobody confuses the Obama Doctrine or the Carter Doctrine as projecting that kind of power.  Yet here we are, just three years after the election, and somehow the belittled and mocked hotel owner from Queens has stumbled into creating a movement that matches in strength and potency what took Marx, Lenin, and Stalin over a century to perfect.   Consider the fear that Carville and his ilk must harbor about what is to come.

What does he see that makes him tremble so?  In a word, greatness.

The Ant and the Grasshopper – 2020 Version


This one is a little different …Two Different Versions …Two Different Morals
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
Be responsible for yourself!
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.
CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast.
How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green’
Occupy the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the Black Lives Matter group singing, We shall overcome.
Then Reverend Al Sharpton has the group kneel down to pray for the grasshopper while he damns the ants. He later appears on MSNBC to complain that rich people do not care.
Former President Obama condemns the ant and blames Donald Trump, President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.
Nancy Pelosi & Chuck Schumer exclaim in an interview on The View that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.
The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and given to the grasshopper.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.
The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and peaceful, neighborhood.
The entire Nation collapses bringing the rest of the free world with it.
Be careful how you vote in 2020

Message to Democrats on Roger Stone – Carl Paladino

Message to my Democratic Friends about Trump’s commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence

by Carl Paladino
13 July 2020

To my Democrat friends losing their minds over President Trump’s Commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence I have this to say, are you stoned? Before you accuse Trump of abuse of power and flaunting the criminal justice system, educate yourself on the facts behind this case and the acts of Trump’s last two Democrat predecessors.


• Roger Stone was convicted for lying for his part in trying to gain access for information on Hillary’s crime, her illegal server, and the crimes related to the cover-up. Guess who also lied on this topic who to date were never charged? Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, James Comey, dirty spies Clapper & Brennan. Where was your outcry when the Obama Administration ran cover for them?

• While Hillary was given a get out of jail free card from the Obama DOJ, CNN was given a tip that the flawed Mueller mob was sending more armed forces, on Land, Inner Coastal and Air than were sent to Kill Osama Bin Laden.  All a media stunt to affect the outcome of the 2016 election.

• Under Obama’s reign, he pardoned or commuted over 1700 criminals, the greatest number than any president before him. Obama also made the record books for signing 330 pardons during his last day in office to avoid the scrutiny that you are bestowing on Trump today. Worst was the Obama pardon of Chelsea Manning convicted for leaking government information which, like Hillary’s server, likely resulted in the deaths of individuals working on behalf of America.

• Bill Clinton was investigated for selling Pardons, the most notable being Clinton ally Marc Rich who fled the country with a $48 million dollar tax debt that Clinton erased with his pen. Oh and afterwards the Rich’s made a sizable contribution to sweet Hillary’s campaign.

So, Democrats before you once again Rush to Judgement, put the bong down and accept the realty that this is just another Democrat propaganda grand illusion to anger you into voting for yet another flawed Democrat candidate.

Carl Paladino is the Chairman of Ellicott Development Co, a Real Estate development company he founded in 1973 in Buffalo, New York, and the Tea Party and Republican candidate in the 2010 Gubernatorial election.

To the People who “Freed Capitol Hill”

It is irresponsible to have made no effort to publicly state your objectives and civilly effect change prior to your siege, but alas, you’ve already crossed that bridge. Your demands will never become a reality as they are simply incompatible with US Law. Without law there is mayhem. Surely the Mayor would gladly welcome another option that would more sufficiently meet your needs — a Charter with the City to allocate funds for a self-contained program, wherein your group would learn valuable skills, providing the means by which you can become self-sustaining.

This movement has no proper foundation and is doomed to fail. Quickly. Adopt a program that will work for everyone and not end in bloodshed. Let it end well.

                                    * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

In credit to the people who freed Capitol Hill, this list of demands is neither brief nor simplistic. This is no simple request to end…

We can thank Cuomo for not being able to open up today

We can thank Cuomo for not being able to open up today. From 

By Carl Paladino

Feel free to share everywhere. Buffalo News won’t print it so it’s up to us to spread the news!

I spoke with many concerned businessman over the past three weeks. They have asked me to help organize a rally, maybe Tuesday or Wednesday at the Ellicott Square lobby at noon to bring hundreds of small business owners and have a couple of speakers outline their thoughts on the matter and see if there is a willingness to declare and then open for business on a day certain in disregard of the of Cuomo’s illegal and unconstitutional lockdown and/or bring a lawsuit.

An attorney has researched the question of the legality of the lockdown. Cuomo’s emergency directive can only be made once for 30 days to maintain the status quo on an urgent issue while allowing time to be considered by the legislature. The law says that no “suspension or directive shall be made for a period in excess of 20 days, provided , however, that upon reconsideration of all relevant facts and circumstances, the governor may “extend the suspension” for additional periods to exceed thirty days each.’ He can extend suspensions but not new directives, which is what the shutdown is and its over 50 days old.

Gridlock Buffalo: PR 20Apr2020

For Immediate Release:
Contact: Rus Thompson

Gridlock Buffalo

We vehemently object to Governor Andrew Cuomo asserting dictatorial control over the lives and livelihood of millions of New York State residents as an extreme response to COVID-19.  As with many poorly planned and executed one-size-fits-all solutions to problems New York City primarily faces, the Governor has yet again applied crippling mandates to the entire State of New York.  There is also no consistency regarding essential and non-essential businesses.  Department stores and liquor stores stay open while small businesses with minimal employees are required to close.

Extending the lockdown to May 15th is not sustainable for New York businesses or their employees who rely upon daily operation, receipts and pay to survive.

According to the NYS Department of Health website, as of April 19, 2020, 84.6% or 205,466 of the 242,786 confirmed cases of COVID-19 are in the vicinity of NY City, Westchester County and South.  Disregarding the inflation of the death toll by attributing non-COVID deaths to COVID, 95.4% of NY State deaths have occurred in the same area. Just 632 of the 13,869 deaths in NY State have occurred outside the vicinity of NY City.

Crashing the New York State economy from which we may not recover, is not a viable solution. We know the protocol. We know how to protect ourselves, others and our work environment from the spread of disease.  But we cannot contain the spread of poverty, bankruptcy and despair that have quickly surpassed the danger of a virus.

PRESS RELEASE: Pro-TRUMP vs. Impeach Trump Rally -Buffalo NY 21 July 2019

Contact: United For Trump 2020 on Facebook
Rus Thompson, Co-Organizer
JULY 20, 2019

Pro-TRUMP Gathering Counter-Protest vs. Impeach Trump Rally
in Buffalo NY on July 21, 2019 at 1:00 pm
Bidwell Parkway and Colonial Circle

In response to Grand Island Supervisor and former NY-27 Congressional District candidate Nate MacMurray’s call to impeach the POTUS, many groups felt compelled to counter-protest in response, including (listed alphabetically):
Buffalo and Western New York for Trump
Long Island President Trump Train
Make New York Red
Make New York Red Again
New York For Trump
New York State 2A Forum
Tea New York and who are all united under one group called
United for Trump 2020

Many others across the State of New York share their love and respect for President Donald J. Trump including the 46 of 62 counties that voted for him and the 47 that voted against New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. We represent all those who could not be present.

President Trump made promises and kept them. From the highest GDP to the lowest
unemployment ever, providing relief from tax and regulatory burden to honoring our Military, Police and service agencies, and from making peace with foreign dictators to strengthening our religious liberties and Constitutional protections, President Trump is anything but a disgrace. He is an honorable man, and the massive misinformation campaign to discredit him and those who support him is a pathological, destructive force that preys upon the under-informed, and is antithetical to civil liberty and natural rights.

In the spirit of peaceful disagreement Nate MacMurray will meet with political activist Rus
Thompson halfway, express their considerable friendship and mutually disagree. In light of some prevalent violence perpetrated by groups like Antifa and almost exclusively by the Left, we encourage others to similarly seek common ground or just walk away. Lawlessness is not an option and people can coexist, even across great ideological divides.


Prepared by, celebrating 10 years in 2019 as a New York Tea Party. As America was founded upon free market principles we reject socialism with responsible exceptions; We support the free exchange of ideas, the targeted suppression of which has currently become a disturbing norm; We support a fast-track to citizenship for “law abiding” Illegals and refugees in the US, Asylum for non-criminals, and do forcefully implore the allocation of proper resources to complete the wall, so that we may adequately address the problems that have developed from an open border; and we support strengthening and expediting the legal immigration process.
