Thorner/O’Neil: A Nation Unraveling at Its Seams



Screen Shot 2020-07-08 at 8.50.19 AM

By Nancy Thorner & Bonnie O'Neil –

Our nation has been forced to endure recent “marches” through our cities. Unlike the enjoyable parades we delighted in as children, the recent parades of people are intended to gain supporters for what they believe are injustices perpetrated against them by everyone from the Washington State police, to our white ancestors, and to what now seems like every white person alive in the past and today.

Reasonable people looked on in disgust from their homes shaking their heads in dismay, realizing any valid message had been blurred by unreasonable people who chose violence rather than reasonable dialogue.

Particularly sad is that the rioting occurred at the worst time possible.  How many of those who mingled and marched together will learn they contracted the coronavirus in the process and will pass it on to their families and friends?  According to health officials, there could not have been a worst time for social mingling and marching arm and arm through crowded street.

Hard working business owners’ stores were looted and vandalized and the police, past and present, were blamed, then somehow all the violence transferred to Washington D.C., where out-of-control protesters tried to topple our treasured national monuments. 

Perhaps the lack of effort to arrest some of the actors involved in the blatant violence in Washington State served as the catalyst for the violence that erupted in Washington D.C. and other U.S. states, further creating the impetus by which famous statues of former American heroes were toppled and damaged. The buildings, businesses and statues were not the property of the violent, unhinged protesters to destroy. 

Men in Blue
The responsibility now rests with our police to find, arrest, and try the culprits in a court with their peers, with the intent to have them repay what they destroyed. 
This is the way our system of law and order should operate, when and if the police are permitted to do what they were originally hired to do in cities across this nation; instead,  cities are capitulating to the #1 priority of the Marxist Black Lives Matter political organization that calls to defund and/or completely eliminate police departments. 
For those of you who doubt that BLM is a Marxist political organization, it would behove you to read Bill O'Reilly’s column, BLM Organization: 'It's News to Us', to open your eyes to the truth.  
“George Floyd’s death was a tragedy, but it was also an anomaly, an aberration. Systemic racism in our police departments is an illusion, conjured up by anti-American zealots and malcontents.”
“Those who unhesitatingly bow to their demands are flying by the seat of their pants. They’re scrambling to defund the police, but don’t know where to go from there. Some have suggested replacing police with unarmed social workers or re-molding law enforcement officers into something called peace officers. They have no concept of the real dangers police routinely face when they respond to those 911 calls. They haven’t considered the consequences of drastically modifying a law enforcement system millions of Americans depend upon.”
“We the People” deserve the truth
For the sake of transparency, American patriots deserve to know those involved, especially the names of the protesters who organized and promoted mob violence that ended so very badly for police officers and others who were innocent casualties of the violence. 
Many of us no longer believe these massive, out-of-control events just happened.  There are credible accusations that Marxist George Soros helped finance Black Lives Matter events during the virus pandemic.
It has also been suggested that former President Obama provided input and/or help with the recent protests. This is not unreasonable to believe, as Obama, a confirmed globalist, is heavily invested in the Deep State's push to radically change this nation. 
If true, Obama would have violated the traditions former presidents have honored of not engaging in highly controversial political issues once leaving office.  his infraction, however, doesn't come close to Obama's involvement to overthrow President Trump and his administration, which borders of sedition, even before Trump was sworn in at 45th president of this nation.
There are proper ways to make changes, but tearing down and defacing statues, torching building, and looting is not acceptable to most Americans. How dare a small minority of Americans think they have the right to act on their emotional viewpoint, rather than allow the majority of citizens to decide issues that impact every one of us!
Their impulsive acts of destruction will not be forgotten for a long time; the intentional destruction will be a blot on our history for ages.  
President Trump at Mount Rushmore
On Friday, July 3, 2020, in his Mount Rushmore speech, Trump pointed out two indisputable facts that have contributed to the culture that has created this nation’s out of control violence.   
  • “We know that all of our most pathological cities have been run as Democratic monopolies for decades.”
  • "We know that our public schools are increasingly factories of left-wing, anti-American indoctrination."
Trump likewise had strong words to say about what is happening to America:
"There is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought, struggled, and bled to secure.”
“This attack on our liberty must be stopped, and it will be stopped. The enemies of civilization routinely use and abuse its freedoms in order to destroy it." 
“Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities. Many of these people have no idea why they are doing this, but some know exactly what they are doing. They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive. But no, the American people are strong and proud, and they will not allow our country, and all of its values, history, and culture, to be taken from them.”
Read here the full remarks of President Trump at Mount Rushmore.
Courage to speak out
Our forefathers pointed out how there would be times that would try man's soul, when the American people would need to fight to preserve their freedoms and way of life to save a nation so brilliantly conceived and set forth by their Founding Fathers.    
Are the American people, as President Trump suggested, proud and strong, or will they allow this nation, and all its values, history, and culture, to be taken from them and denied future generations?
It is fair to assume that much of the chaos is the result of specific opposition group's efforts to create chaos before the upcoming election period, planned and executed by those who do not share our traditional American values. 
As Dennis Byrne, a Chicago freelance writer, editor and author wrote in his July 5, 2020 commentary, Gather your Courage and Speak Out. It’s a sacred freedom:   
“Even some Republicans, who define themselves as the guardians of individual rights are intimidated into silence. But mostly, this disease has invaded the halls of Democrats who once were the champions of equal rights for all.  Their silence, to me, is most hurtful. And the most dangerous.”
“So, gather your courage, for the good of all of us, and speak out. It is not only your right. In this land of the free and home of the brave, it is your responsibility.”

Calling all patriots
We must be patriots who will do whatever possible to protect our nation from those who plan and plot her destruction.
We must not remain silent, because that implies compliance and support of the Black Lives Matter rioters. 
We must speak up and let OUR voices and values be known.  We can do this by writing letters to newspapers and authorities, twittering, texting, and connecting with like-minded American patriots.  Together, we can provide information to those who may not have the time or inclination to investigate facts.
On November 3, 2020 this nation's fate will be decided.  May voters choose to preserve this nation from those who wish to destroy her by giving President Donald Trump four more years in office.
As was said by Napoleon Bonaparte:  "Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent."

  1. I would suggest the opposite to this article’s title: “A Nation Unraveling At Its Seams.”
    What we are witnessing is the socialists last gasp at achieving their destructive plans for America. After watching our great Nation go astray during the Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and Obama years, citizens have been silently gaining strength through private/public email lists, through many excellent articles posted on sites such as this, and by exposing the sinister side of the democrats and the useless side of the republicans.
    What you haven’t been reading/watching in the Piddle Stream Media are the countless stories of citizens facing off against the evil ones on the streets and in the courts. You also may be surprised by zooming sales of firearms and ammo. And you haven’t been hearing about thousands of citizens individually and collectively rallying around the country against the oppressive dictates of mostly democrat governors during the C-19 fiasco.
    Now that the socialist/communists/democrats have seen their dreams of dominance begin to crash before their eyes and view it as a possible end to their sick dreams, they are reacting as one might expect in such a situation. But we do have to stand up to them and Trump is leading the way.
    I personally can’t stand listening to Trump. He’s a bloviator, a supreme egotist, and a blowhard. But the man has a dream and in the final analysis, it seems that dream is to lead our country into restoring its image to what it should be: The Shining Beacon On the Hill. Yes, I’ll probably vote for him again!

  2. Three women are behind “The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation,” which is the central organization that directs policy. Alicia Garza, 39, is the chief strategic advisor. Patrisse Cullors, 36, is also a top advisor.
    Finally, Opal Tometi, 36, is the third force. She works with the BLM Foundation and is also the Executive Director of the “Black Alliance for Just Immigration.” That group is associated with the “Freedom Road Socialist Organization,” a Marxist-Leninist group that has received funding from the Tides Foundation run by George Soros.
    Alicia Garza, 39
    Patrisse Cullors, 36
    Opal Tometi, 36
    Go on line and check these women. Read their moral background. The are not concerned about BLM.

  3. As far as I see it, we, citizens of the United States have a decision to make on November 3rd. Will we choose law and order or will we choose anarchy? As a conservative, I have one obvious choice and the “dark side” isn’t one of them. I won’t probably be voting for Trump, I WILL be voting for Trump. In a war, you have to choose a side, and I choose Donald Trump.

  4. Thank you so much for this information.
    I check out everything.
    What you state is accurate.
    Why do not conservative activists not ‘advertise’ this more.
    I understand why the GOP elites do not. They are rated to the two legged birds in barn yards that we get eggs from.
