Opinion: With Fear, We Failed Our Younger Generations

Speaking with a friend recently concerning her sons first year of college. It seems he has a fairly high level of anxiety about the COVID-19 virus. Not a surprise when you think on it. Everything the major media has been putting out for the last four months is specifically designed to instill and maintain a fairly high level of fear.

From Dr. Fauci completely reversing everything he has advised for the last 30 years and shutting down the entire nation to refusing to print honest information about treatments to printing and broadcasting total and complete lies concerning medications and the government response.

The left with the help of their media arm has done everything in their power to keep the people of this nation afraid. Especially the young adults.

Fear is a huge controller and motivator. When afraid the human animal, as with most animals, chooses fight or flight. Most, of course, choose flight. It’s the minority that choose to fight that are the most useful to the left. They are told who to blame for the fear and who they should attack.

The 18 to 24 age group has been raised to trust the government, which they associate with the major media, more than their own parents. So, when the media says they should hate every one that disagrees with the chosen ideology, they hate. When told to attack, they attack.

This might explain why although racism is the verbalized reason for the attacks and destruction, that false focus has long since vaporized. Now the rioters, the crowds, attack anything close. They are becoming more random and out of control. This is most likely the desired goal and in fact, the plan.

Of course, there is the school of thought that they are not out of control at all, I’m in that school. I believe they are not only in control but they are well controlled, and paid. The fear they create is useful.

The left has been using the fear factor as a control mechanism for at least two centuries and they keep getting better at it. Fear separates us from our friends, family and support group. It can be used to intensify isolation and the desire for security and guidance.

The followers of Marx are well versed in the methods for guiding people in the midst of such situations. They give you someone and something to follow and believe in. Even if that something is not good for you. In fact, very bad for you and your entire community.

My generation and that of our parents let down not just our children and grandchildren, but the entire world. We failed to pay attention to the people who were educating our children. We failed to hold accountable those who we elected. So bad did it get we began to forgive behavior we should never have.

Adultery, theft, treason, (selling military tech to China). We abdicated our responsibilities to others from teachers to bureaucrats. The cost of that failure is becoming very apparent.

Fear can cause us to make mistakes, to act in ways we might normally not. In Kenosha Wi. a 17-year old defending his neighborhood shoots two protestors.

Looking at the video it could go either way. He was indeed knocked down and attacked. His reaction may have been extreme, we don’t know. One of the attackers appears to have a handgun.

It doesn’t matter, what matters is why. This young man was afraid. Afraid for his life and his families. He sees his country being destroyed all over TV and feels helpless but wants to do something. The result could have been predicted.

Fear can never be allowed to control us, never. It is the most difficult thing you will ever do. Feel fear but not let it rule. When you reach that point it will be the most freeing feeling ever experienced. Freeing and strengthening.

You can achieve that by several means I guess, but I believe without God in your life it could be tough. I’m not a big fan of FDR but he said something truly profound. “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” If you give into fear not only will it control you but everyone who comes along will also control you.

The Marxist founders of BLM (Black Lives Matter) should be an eye opener for everyone. Karl Marx could easily be considered the father of communism. The guiding light for Lenin and Stalin. Now his followers are openly advocating the overthrow of America. They have convinced our young adults to forfeit their lives to that end and their number one tool is fear.

Rusty Rogers: NRA Is Under A Huge Threat To Its Existence

I really don’t expect anything original from the Democrats at any time unless it might advance their move to the left and increase the socialist hold on our society. Which brings us to the New York state Attorney General and her latest brilliant idea. Eliminate the NRA!

Now in the interest of full disclosure I have to state that the NRA brought this on themselves. Wayne LaPierre and a few others were caught with their hands in the cookie jar. Or so she says. Now, LaPierre managed to oust the NRA president at the time, Ollie North, and Chris Cox of the NRA-ILA and save his job, but none of us know the real story.

Really doesn’t matter, the New York AG is going after the most powerful citizen lobby in America and she intends to freeze its funds. If she manages that, it shuts the voice of 5 million Americans off at the source. Pretty ingenious way to silence millions on the right and limit the support of a U.S. president you don’t like.

Begs the question, why in the wide, wide, world of sports would the NRA have maintained its incorporation in a state that so hugely detests it? That could be considered Wayne’s biggest mistake. Aside from a lack of humility.

In the interest of full disclosure, I am a Golden Eagle Life Member of the NRA and will continue to support it. I will also continue to insist its leaders be more open and clean up their act. Our donations are not a piggy bank. What are they? Democrats?!

  More and more “news” agencies are reporting the obviously racist utterances of Joe Biden like, Hispanics are more diverse than Blacks. Or if you don’t vote for Joe, you’re not black. I don’t know what to do with asking a reporter if he’s a junkie, what do you or can you say? There’s more, but I anticipate we will be surprised by what he comes up with next.

(On our continuing story: no, the FDA is not going to reverse its reversal. It is in fact, digging in. However, the AAPS, a somewhat more intelligent organization than the AMA, has filed suit to force the FDA to release the 100s of millions of doses of Hydroxy.)

I just spent a few moments listening to Joe Biden’s latest campaign ad and found it very interesting. He said a lot of very wonderful sounding things. Things that the Democratic party has never done and will never do.

You may recall back a few decades, when Sleepy Joe ran for president the first time, that he admitted to plagiarism. Well, everything he said he wanted to do if elected is already being done by Trump. Either through congressional action or by executive order. Aside of course, from increased taxes.

Have the government buy only American-made products, bring jobs and factories back to American soil. Make sure we have the manufacturing base for medical supplies of all types. Sound familiar? I fear that old Joe hasn’t had an original thought for about 35 years and is now uttering Republican talking points!

You might think that the stuff Biden spews is original but it’s not. He’s been talking that way for 35 years. I believe they all think that way. Dems I mean. They are the inventors of Jim Crow laws, the KKK, and presidentially ordered segregation after all.

One place I would like to see a little more originality is in the conservative movement, the Republican Party. Right now, they have the perfect opportunity to rise above the storm and place themselves in the position deserved. We do have the moral high ground; we should not be afraid to say so.

Instead all I hear are weak attempts to placate the angry mob and give in to the PC crowd. Acting out of a fear of being canceled. You cannot be canceled if you don’t allow it.

Ted Cruz and Lindsey Graham begging forgiveness for themselves because of George Floyd without waiting for or looking for further evidence. Floyd was a career criminal who never missed an opportunity to fight the police. Now, the manner in which he died was wrong, beyond question, but extenuating circumstances mean a lot and need to be looked at.

Just one example of habitual weakness and their inability to effectively communicate. It’s time for Republican Party leaders to start acting like they are not the stepchildren of the Democratic party. Think independently and communicate clearly and effectively and get their message across.

President Trump’s conservative actions did more for the people of this country, ALL the people, in three years than the Democrats did in 150 and it’s time we started announcing it loudly, clearly, and often.

Rusty Rogers: Covid-19 Crisis Has Us Living On Our Knees

SARATOGA – A friend has a daughter who planned on getting married the first of August. The question now for them is, will anyone attend? The very need to ask the question should anger all of us. We have, within a very short time, been trained to respond with fear as our first decision maker. That is so wrong I don’t have the words to explain it.

Fear is the great destroyer – just ask Stalin or Hitler. The media and the left are doing everything in their power to keep the nation afraid. They like the power – look at Illinois and Kentucky to mention a couple. Every state with a Democrat governor is suffering under what can only be called dictatorial abuse of power.

It’s true that this particular coronavirus is very contagious and it aims at the older citizens and those with compromised immune systems. Of course, those with compromised systems are at risk all the time, so the main difference is the elderly targets and the way it attacks.

The normal annual influenza is tougher on children. Which makes me think, tough on children, we just deal with it. Tough on the elderly, we stop the world AND we’re dumb enough to tell everyone to stay in their home. Guess why Wyoming and Montana have some of the lowest number of cases in the country.

I am seriously proud of the way so many Americans have stepped up to the plate and helped but not surprised. It’s what Americans do. Now the country wants to get back to work and fear is being used to try to stop that. Don’t let it.

I’ve got a surprise for everyone. Nobody gets out of this life alive. There are things far worse than dying. Living your life curled up under the bed is a big one. That young woman and her gentleman deserve their dream. The most amazing day of their lives. It should happen and I’ll tell you who will show up. Those who choose to live without fear.

The media and politicians have strongly propagated the fear then used it to summarily dismiss the constitution not only of their own states but of the United States!

All 50 governors have given orders they had no authority to give. They basically wrote laws, only the legislatures have the authority to write laws. No governor can order you to wear a mask, can’t tell you how to operate your business, can’t tell you to stay indoors. All they can do is what Trump did, advise.

Now some governors are “letting” us get back to business. Letting us? We know how to operate and still protect our vulnerable population. We don’t need a big brother to tell us when to go to the can and how to wipe. We are not China or even Europe; we are a free constitutional republic and we need to start acting like it.

If we don’t get to work we will of course lose our economy but worse when we do finally leave the cocoon we will have no herd immunity and the next wave will be far worse than we have ever seen.

I don’t need the federal government to protect me, that’s not their job. Their job is to protect the country as a whole; I can protect myself. If I need medical care I will contact a doctor, I don’t need the governor to do it for me. I know how to protect my 87-year-old mother and I will. That’s my job. It is sometimes said that it is the job of society to care for their seniors. We need to get back to taking care of family instead of farming them out to “nursing homes.”

Something I just recently read and am currently researching, Dr. Fauci, as head of the NIH has known since 2005 that hydroxychloroquine is remarkably effective on coronaviruses. It’s almost 100% effective, even on patients who are near death.

That is why the French head of their NIH used it from the beginning. Think of this, we could have handled this without any shutdown, no job losses, no financial hardship. Worse yet, 75,000 Americans would be alive today.

They are discussing in blue states about separating family members and isolating them for public safety. Stop them now!

Do not let them put you on your knees and enslave you. That is the goal here. To get rid of Trump and take complete control of society. They are using this weak, easily -controlled virus to scare everyone into voluntarily giving up their liberty. Don’t let them get away with this.

Pelosi is nearly salivating at the chance to initiate her socialist control agenda. Newsome in California is going to build an army (his words), to track people who have been sick with C-19 or even in contact with someone who was. Shades of 1984!

Do not accept the information from Fauci and staff at face value. He knew of a very effective treatment 15 years ago and kept that info to himself. Why would someone sacrifice 75K Americans to advance a political agenda? You know the names of most of them.

There is good news here, a second wave is absolutely unnecessary. We have the treatment and it is cheap, available and ready to go.
