Are small business owners committing financial suicide?

Monday, March 30, 2020, 5:32 pm | Randy Thomasson

If the always-paid government bureaucracy wanted to kill off capitalism, they’re not wasting this opportunity. For every day, small businesses fail because they “aren’t open.”

Yet if you stay closed like the government wants, you might be committing financial suicide. Ask yourself — how long can you go without income?

Small business owners shouldn’t be overly-afraid of the government. Have you heard of a single business owner being fined for staying fully open during the virus scare? I haven’t. And so what if you’re fined? Wouldn’t a couple hundred dollars be a small price to pay compared to all the value you’ll receive by staying open?

And consider the various “bugs” that can be on every public door handle — whether it’s coronavirus, the flu, stomach flu, strep throat, pink eye, or the common cold. Which is why small business owners who are “open for business” should exercise (and require from their customers) an improved level of good hygiene.

What’s more, the “cure” for COVID-19 might already be here. On Sunday, the FDA approved the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine sulfate. Millions of doses are being donated to the nation’s hospitals right now. 

Is the COVID-19 lockdown overkill? One decade ago, America had another epidemic. But the 2009-2010 swine flu occurred when there was a Democrat in the White House, who the Big Media protected, and the opposition party Republicans did not politicize the virus. 

The swine flu’s death toll was higher than (or some might argue, similar to) COVID-19. “According to the CDC from April 2009 to April 2010 there were about 60.8 million cases of the swine flu with 12,469 deaths in the United States. Unlike COVID-19, swine flu targeted the younger population, who health officials said had little to no existing immunity.” Source

Yet now we have a Republican president, who the Big Media hates, and who the opposition party Democrats seem to blame for everything. They unsuccessfully tried to oust him twice. Is it the Big Media’s turn to defeat Trump by eliminating his booming economy?

We are now at a point where the cure is worse than the disease. As R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr. wrote a week ago: “… we need not destroy our economy over this pandemic …The state we had arrived at by last weekend was explained cogently by Bob Luddy, the CEO and founder of CaptiveAire, in The American Spectator on Monday. He wrote: “Our leaders are creating an economic crisis and a major national security risk with limited data. The cure is far worse than any perceived impact by COVID-19.”

For small business owners, and workers who’ve been laid off without pay, the big question is how much more financial bleeding can you stand? Big stores like Wal-Mart and Target haven’t closed. So why must you?

For the sake of your constitutional rights, your God-given ownership rights, your family, and your in-born need to succeed, I encourage you to be “open for business,” along with taking wise steps of good hygiene. Don’t let the establishment destroy your livelihood!

“You shall not steal … You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

George Washington’s wise words for today

Monday, February 17, 2020, 11:34 am | Randy Thomasson




What can the Father of our Country can teach you about being a good citizen? And will you heed his words identifying domestic enemies (which are unconstitutional, self-seeking politicians, judges, and bureaucrats)?

A devout Christian, George Washington was first President of the United States (1789–97), the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He presided over the convention that drafted the current United States Constitution and during his lifetime was called the “father of his country.”

GOOD GOVERNMENT SPRINGS FROM THE CHRISTIAN RELIGION BASED ON THE BIBLE
“Let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.” Source

SECOND TO THE BIBLE, THE WRITTEN WORDS AND ORIGINAL INTENT OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION IS THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND (NOT JUDGES)
“The Constitution is the guide which I never will abandon.” Source

ONLY THE PEOPLE CAN AMEND THE CONSTITUTION (JUDGES CAN’T)
“The basis of our political system is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government.” Source

JUDGES THAT STRIKE DOWN THE PEOPLE’S WRITTEN LAWS ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL THEMSELVES
“Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by individuals.” Source

HAVING A STRONG (NOT IMMORAL) MILITARY IS THE BEST WAY TO AVOID WAR
“Discipline is the soul of an army. It makes small numbers formidable; procures success to the weak, and esteem to all.” Source “To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.” Source

THE MORAL SPLIT BETWEEN PARTIES MEANS WE ARE NO LONGER A CHRISTIAN NATION
“The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism.” Source

PRESERVING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM IS A TOP PRIORITY OF GOOD GOVERNMENT
“I beg you be persuaded that no one would be more zealous than myself to establish effectual barriers against the horrors of spiritual tyranny, and every species of religious persecution.” Source

FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS ANOTHER TOP PRIORITY
“If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.” Source

NO ELECTED OFFICIAL OR PUBLIC SERVICE SHOULD CUSS
“The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing … is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it.” Source

HONESTY IS A VIRTUE WE SHOULD DEMAND AND EXPECT IN ELECTED OFFICIALS
“I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” Source

A PUBLIC OFFICIAL MUST PROMOTE THE PUBLIC’S GOOD ABOVE HIS OWN INTERESTS
“I have no other view than to promote the public good, and am unambitious of honors not founded in the approbation of my Country.” Source

TRUE CHRISTIANITY DOES THE RIGHT THING IN GOVERNMENT
“I am persuaded, you will permit me to observe, that the path of true piety is so plain as to require but little political direction.” Source

A GODLESS PEOPLE CANNOT SHAPE OR MAINTAIN GOOD GOVERNMENT
“Mankind, when left to themselves, are unfit for their own government.” Source

More quotes of Founding Father George Washington, 1st U.S. President (1789–1797)

WASHINGTON’S BIRTHDAY TIMELINE:
> February 1732 – George Washington is born. The Julian “old style” calendar, which was used at the time, marks his birth date as February 11.
1752 – The Gregorian “new style” calendar is adopted, putting Washington’s birthday on February 22.
1789-1797 – Washington’s birthday is celebrated on both days while he is president.
> 1885 – February 22 is designated as a federal holiday to honor Washington’s birthday.
> 1968 – Congress passes the Monday Holidays Act. Existing federal holidays will now be observed on Mondays, to give government workers three day weekends. After much debate, Congress rejects combining Washington’s and Lincoln’s into one Monday called “Presidents’ Day.” The bill goes into effect in 1971. Source
> The bill went into effect in 1971 and deemed that “Washington’s Birthday” would be moved from February 22 to the third Monday in February. Source

“O most Glorious God, in Jesus Christ my merciful and loving father, I acknowledge and confess my guilt, in the weak and imperfect performance of the duties of this day. I have called on thee for pardon and forgiveness of sins, but so coldly and carelessly, that my prayers are become my sin and stand in need of pardon. I have heard thy holy word, but with such deadness of spirit that I have been an unprofitable and forgetful hearer, so that, O Lord, tho’ I have done thy work, yet it hath been so negligently that I may rather expect a curse than a blessing from thee. But, O God, who art rich in mercy and plenteous in redemption, mark not, I beseech thee, what I have done amiss; remember that i am but dust, and remit my transgressions, negligences & ignorances, and cover them all with the absolute obedience of thy dear Son, that those sacrifices which I have offered may be accepted by thee, in and for the sacrifice of Jesus Christ offered upon the cross for me; for his sake, ease me of the burden of my sins, and give me grace that by the call of the Gospel I may rise from the slumber of sin into the newness of life. Let me live according to those holy rules which thou hast this day prescribed in thy holy word; make me to know what is acceptable in thy holy word; make me to know what is acceptable in thy sight, and therein to delight, open the eyes of my understanding, and help me thoroughly to examine myself concerning my knowledge, faith and repentance, increase my faith, and direct me to the true object Jesus Christ the way, the truth and the life, bless O Lord, all the people of this land, from the highest to the lowest, particularly those whom thou has appointed to rule over us in church & state. continue thy goodness to me this night. These weak petitions I humbly implore thee to hear accept and ans. for the sake of thy Dear Son Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.”

Why it’s only right to acquit President Trump

Thursday, January 30, 2020, 7:35 am | Randy Thomasson

Should President Donald Trump be removed from office? Your opinion depends on how well you know the law.

Several years ago, I was ticketed by a California Highway Patrol officer on a county road. After assessing the lack of evidence and the government’s money motive, I decided to fight — and won.

Because I was not guilty of speeding. There was no posted speed limit sign, and also no possible way I could have violated the Vehicle Code statute that was erroneously written on my ticket. 

Yet when faced with my overwhelming photographic and video evidence, the judge sided with the CHP officer, who on the second day of the trial, announced a new charge of “driving unsafely.” They saw me as a threat, so they denied me a fair trial.

Things got so bad (really, so corrupt), the final judge I ended up with ruled I was “guilty,” because I “didn’t prove” that I was “driving safely.” Stunned and angry, I told the judge, “This is America. I’m presumed innocent, and the burden of proof is upon the D.A., who’s not even here.” From 30 feet away, I looked the judge in the eye, called her ruling “a miscarriage of justice,” and promised to appeal. Up there on her dais, she had a silent fit.

In my written appeal, I documented how the court committed more than a dozen legal errors. Ultimately, since I had provided ample “evidence” that I was willing to take this corrupt denial of my rights to the full State Court of Appeal, the local court’s appellate division focused solely on the error that was the least damaging to them, and reversed my conviction. I got all my ticket money and insurance rate hikes back. I had beaten the beast!

So, you’ll understand why I’m keenly aware of the House Democrats’ impeachment charade. Because the congressional Democrats blew it on both process and substance

PROCESS: The U.S. House Democrats committed so many errors with their hearings, their subpoenas, their witnesses, and their impeachment articles. President Trump’s attorneys on the Senate floor have painstakingly delineated these violations. In essence, “the ball” wasn’t correctly thrown by the U.S. House, so it couldn’t “be caught” by the U.S. Senate. Therefore, the House Democrats’ impeachment articles are defective on their face.

SUBSTANCE: What the U.S. Constitution calls “separation of powers,” including the constitutional right of presidents to conduct foreign policy, the Democrats call “abuse of power,” without naming a single federal statute that the President allegedly violated. And what the U.S. Supreme Court calls “executive privilege,” which is the right of presidents to not provide Congress with confidential White House documents, the Democrats call “obstruction of Congress.” Their two impeachment charges are constitutionally baseless.

In other words, the congressional Democrats are NOT supporting and defending the written federal laws and the written U.S. Constitution, and they’ve made themselves HIGHER than the President and our Constitution. This is both lawless and corrupt, and is exactly what our mostly Christian founding fathers warned against when they created a government of reliable, written laws, not a lawless government of power-hungry people. For these reasons, President Trump should be acquitted of the two groundless charges against him.

Hate evil, love good;
Establish justice in the gate.
