his week, a remarkable man, who stands head and shoulders above the masses in his ability to both see and memorably convey to others the value and significance of that for which we are fighting — the constitutional protections of our God-given life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness — passed from this temporal realm into the arms of Jesus Christ in eternity.
Paul Frownfelter is someone who always managed to make many of the more contentious and confusing and complex issues of our day clearly understandable to any willing to open their eyes to truth.
Paul’s extraordinary ability of helping others see light and truth from a fresh perspective sowed a legacy that will reap benefits far into the future.
Paul once told me that when seeking to illuminate the essence of an issue, he strove to do so in a manner that made the explanation clear and relatable to a child so that then even the adults could grasp hold.
The truth is that Paul intensively prepared for explaining the issue by working diligently to educate himself far beyond that of the average person.
Whether it be the Federalist Papers or the Holy Bible, Paul studied to show himself approved, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
In the days ahead, though we will sorely miss Paul’s steady hand on the temporal plow in the fights for right, we will take to heart his shining lessons of light and truth; his love of family, community, our country and our world; and, most especially, the certainty that he now knows with perfect knowledge the hope that is in Christ Jesus and the eternal value of that for which we are fighting.
As Paul now rejoices before the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, he also is beyond the grasp of the tyrannical Establicrat dictator-wannabes across our nation and their attempt to control and prohibit everything from family Thanksgivings to who and what is and is not “essential” in our lives with their ever-growing tsunami of dictates.
Sadly, 2020 will be known for the most radical and rapid erosion of the constitutional protections of our God-given rights and liberties in the history of our nation.
As the politicians, bureaucrats, the misleadia, Big Tech and other Leftist apparatchiks claw for more and more of our liberties and lives, they do with publicly displayed hubris and hypocrisy that clearly reveals that not only do their rules not apply to them, but also they themselves do not truly believe in the society-shaking boogiemen they have conjured to “justify” their despotic waves of error.
Of course, the Establicrats maintain they do what they do — even when what they do is contrary to what they order us to do — for “our own good.”
And, of course, they maintain only they know what is for “our own good” and their decrees must not be questioned, lest they invoke rapid and vicious penalties upon anyone who dares to exercise their personal God-given freedoms. The not-so-good intentions of the Establicrats are glaringly evident in the ongoing official and officious response by those demanding to be our masters.
The two most notable examples for 2020 are tyranny by panic-demic and the blatant and massive Democratic election fraud wherein Establicrats seek to undermine the foundations of our entire constitutional republic.
With respect to election integrity — or, better said, the lack thereof (see JoeCheated.com, EveryLegalVote.com) — in the 2020 election, not only do almost all Republicans know that the Democrats are attempting to steal the presidency (and other offices) via blatant fraud, but even 30% of Democrats admit the Democrats are perpetrating the Big Steal.
Democrats ranging from New York failed mayor Bill de Blasio’s daughter, Chiara, who stated on camera that “Joe Biden was able to steal” the election, to Biden himself bragging on camera that the Democrats put together “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.”
Aside from the Democrats’ blatant election and ballot fraud, J.B. Shurk’s recent article, “5 More Ways Joe Biden Magically Outperformed Election Norms” (thefederalist.com), highlights some of the historical facts that defy rational belief Biden preposterously and impossibly won the election. These include:
1. No president in 150 years has gained votes in a re-election campaign and still lost. President Donald Trump was up at least 10 million (millions more when fraud is factored), including record support from minorities, the most legal votes in history, which implies Basement Biden dramatically outperformed Obama despite a record low rate of enthusiasm.
2. Of the 19 “bellweather counties” with nearly perfect historical records predicting the presidential victor, Biden lost 18 by an average of more than 16 points. In the 58 counties that went with the winner since 2000, Biden lost 51 by an average of more than 15 points.
3. Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 vote numbers except in Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia. Miraculously, in those cities, the number of votes exceeded the number of registered voters.
4. Even more miraculously, though Democratic losses were widespread across the nation — including losses in all 27 toss-up House elections — in key Democratic-run cities, Biden received millions of “extra” votes, many of which were either from pristine ballots marked only for Biden or mysteriously added to his tally and/or subtracted from Trump’s totals via Dominion Voting System and other election software.
5. Trump received over 94% of the primary vote — setting a record double that for the highest ever for previous incumbents — and no president receiving more than 75% has ever lost re-election.
In their lust to trample down free thought and emulate past history, numerous Leftists, including many prominent Democrat officials, are not only advocating and implementing enemies lists and “cancellation” of those with whom they disagree, but also they are pushing for literal “re-education” camps.
We need only refer to Leftist icons like Chairman Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot to realize we should take such threats seriously.
There can be no doubt that the greatest threat to our nation, our communities and our families lies not in some foreign army upon the horizon — though such threats are not to be discounted — but from those within our nation who hate the very principles that enable them to cause so much harm to the rest of us.
When one considers these same people scoff at the sanctity of life itself — advocating for killing innocent children up to and beyond the moment of birth — others’ liberty and pursuit of happiness is certainly of no consequence to them.
Their actions make it clear that there is no depth of evil to which they will not grasp if they think it will help them attain their lusts.
Statesman Daniel Webster proved prescient when he wrote, “I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger.
“I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing.
“Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy.”
In the days ahead, I pray many will awaken with a sense of urgency to the worth and necessity of both what we are fighting against and what we are fighting for. It is well past time we apply the remedy.
