Breitbart: Over 300,000 people have signed a Judicial Watch petition asking a special counsel to be appointed to investigate alleged Biden family corruption following years of allegations of pay-for-play schemes and questions looming around Hunter Biden’s business dealings with China and his role on the board of the Ukrainian oligarch-owned energy company Burisma, particularly as his father served as vice president at the time.
Judicial Watch’s petition is specifically asking for:
“A special counsel should immediately be appointed because the Biden Justice Department is conflicted in investigating any matter that could implicate President Biden or his immediate family,”
So, Who was Thomas Paine, and what did his quote involving the term Sunshine Patriot mean? Steer clear of the more current ( radical leftist rewrites of our history) dictionaries and bios if you wish to know.
Here is a brief summary. Thomas Paine (Thetford, England, 1737 – New York City, 1809) played a significant role in America’s Colonies’ decision to break away from England and declare independence. Paine was a political writer, revolutionary, and forward thinker. His pamphlet in 1776 entitled Common Sense was a clarion call and laid out the principles of freedom of speech, and freedom of religion, and how no man is free under King rule. Paine supported the revolution, and General George Washington ordered that Paine’s inspirational “American Crisis” (1776) be read to his troops before the Battle of Trenton. He was a revolutionary figure in the French Revolution and was a member of the French National Convention between 1792 and 1795. His(1807) Age of Reason provided a popular deist text that remained influential throughout the 19th century.
It would be in the text of “American Crisis” (1776) this quote appears:
“These are the times that try men’s souls; the summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.”
The” Sunshine Patriot” reference means that a soldier or countryman will stand up when things are easy, minimal risk, and war is going well, but retreats and is disloyal when pressure mounts for him to do so, or war turns to hell.
So which are you?
Will you stand up now under fire from a totalitarian government and defend your freedoms? Or will you fade out of the view of possible reprisals and blend in with those who willingly become enslaved by a Cultural Marxist ideological coup?
I watched so-called patriots of my country sit back for four years as the Deep State attempted to remove a duly elected president in a coup attempt. The Russian Collusion Hoax, the Mueller witch hunt, and the duo impeachments based on lies, just to name a few of the American historical junctures where Americans should have risen peacefully and legally to redress the corruption and out of control government demanding answers and action of equal justice under the law. But instead, Trump stood against the tide basically alone fighting for and defending our liberties.
Then I watched as the 2020 Election was anything but transparent and fair. And while a large number of patriots did attend a DC rally, there were no such large gatherings in the key swing states demanding audits and transparency before Jan. 20th when it could have mattered. Again, based on what I have seen in the past from those who sit online hidden behind social media profiles and tout their patriotism – I hold out little hope that any action will be taken.
Please prove me wrong – I implore you.
Yes, I know you watch every Trump rally on your TV, Cell phone, or laptop and you feel like a red, white, and blue patriot. Oh, and you secretly cast a ballot for Trump. But where were you when the war turned to hell?
It is almost comical if not just so pathetic that in the current political/cultural climate one would need to write an article begging people who love their country and care about their freedoms and the rule of law to sign a petition. This petition should be over the millions mark by now and climbing. Yet here I am banging the drum as loud as I can and conjuring up Thomas Paine to motivate you to simply create a dummy name attached to an email account to sign the darn thing!
What? Too preachy for you? Believe me, if I had signed onto the petition site and seen any number that reflected the majority of our country were acting like patriots I would have deep-sixed my sermon. Depending on official numbers vs. fraud real numbers 75 million-plus voted for Trump! One would assume a goal of 500K signatures was some kind of joke. Where are you MAGA? Let us all hope not choosing to get a suntan.
Change.org already has a flag banner up denoting disputes in the content of the petitioner’s request. You can see the writing on the wall. As the numbers grow of signees the site will take down the petition. So get ready to Pivot and barrage the Change.org site with complaints and boycott messages if that happens. In the meantime flood your local, state, and federal representatives to pressure them to take up this fight. Demand a special counsel be appointed.
“There is plenty of substantial evidence, from documents and witness statements, that the Biden family, including President Joe Biden, may have been involved in criminal activity involving, among other issues, foreign entities tied to Ukraine and China,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said:
“Hunter has acknowledged that he is the target of an FBI criminal investigation, and he’s on to his next corrupt enterprise — secretly selling his ‘ink blow’ paintings, in a scheme concocted by the Biden White House. A special counsel needs to be appointed immediately because the Biden Justice Department is conflicted in investigating any matter that could implicate President Biden or his immediate family.”
Look, I am a Wizard of Oz fan just like most of you, but there is no Glinda the Good Witch floating down to save the Republic and return us to our founding principles. No, you will all have to click your heels together three times patriots, and repeat after me:
“There is no government that is more powerful than the American people unless “We The People” forfeit our power to said government.”
Now, ACT like a patriot.
