Legislation Will Never Outrun God’s Plans

Legislation won’t prevent God’s plans for anyone. The back and forth on this abortion legislation is missing the ultimate point. While I believe abortion should be a last resort, Texas also is trying to play God!

My message to Texas is: let God and let go!

Life is truly precious , but God’s plan for who lives is what we need to focus on. It’s HIS land, His plan for people’s lives and his calling. Texas may be trying to play God, but not one piece of legislation can change the MASTER’s CALL, as Marty Robbins sings about.

WHAT YOU HEARD ON ALEX GARRETT PODCASTING THIS WEEK

This week on Alex Garrett Podcasting, Alex explored why the MTA feels the need to join the vaccination campaign and argued people should not be pressured into getting the vaccine, but told to get the vaxx when the feel comfortable!

With a limited supply of freedoms still hitting New Yorkers, Alex says re-opening must be demanded for earlier lifting of COVID restrictions. We are at under one percent of COVID positivity this week and four states have recently reported ZERO covid deaths on a given day. Hear all about it! https://www.spreaker.com/user/agsportshournyc/5-21-21-demanding-ny-leadership-for-supp

We The People Are Not The Government

In President Biden’s real first address to the nation, one clip that stood out to me was when he said “It’s time to remember that We The People are the Government.” That quote should be disturbing to anyone who loves their Independence and quite frankly enjoys the Independence Day fireworks displays.

I am convinced if President Biden was tasked with leading the Continental Army , he would have said that all of the colonies had to remember Britain was the government. Thank God George Washington believed in Self-governance!

God did help us break away from Britain in 1776, and I also say this country was also founded on the idea of self-governance. We did not want Britain to tell us what the hell to do! If you love America, you cannot let the POTUS tell us the government is the people. That includes raising heck when our taxes continually increase once again.

Beyond economics, it seemed President Biden was telling Americans to become bureaucratic! After all, the government is bureaucracy in the sickest form. America’s neighborhoods are not meant to be bureaucratic but caring for one another. Americans don’t generally believe in ratting each other out to the State, yet I believe that is a part of what Biden was saying in that quote!

I shiver when I consider this country ‘s government the State. Many fled Russia when the communist accountability to the State ruled the day. We aren’t built to be conforming to what the FEDERAL level says all the time. We have States’ Rights for a reason! That’s in the CONSTITUTION!

Many tout the idea of self-love , but not many preach self-governance. Self-governance is the way we will sustain in these times. Being responsible for ourselves and not totally getting comfortable with stimulus after stimulus is what will put America ‘on the move again’.

I get the feeling more will sue this administration and bank on the Justice System to help maintain self-governance. The lawsuit was utilized to force Gov. Cuomo to cave to businesses thirsting for some hope amidst the iron fist of Andrew Cuomo’s executive powers. Those business owners showed they could govern themselves and their businesses better than any Governor on a power trip can!

It should alarm many that this mindset of We The People being the government probably means a radical shift into allowing the government to take MORE control . To give the government more excuses to limit churchgoing activities or limit basically any right we have in this country . The commentary by Joe Biden was a far cry from President Reagan who famously said, “The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

Let’s govern ourselves by standing up for ourselves, neighbors, family and friends. Let’s not fall into the hands of the State, or we will lose America forever! I love this country and would like to keep. With this blog, I’m hoping to speak self-governance into existence even more!

I went into more details on a recent podcast including the lawsuit by South Dakota Governor Noem against the Biden administration when it comes to a fireworks ban over Mt. Rushmore!

The Underreported Injustices Of Pandemic 2020

While I thank God I have made it a year in a pandemic, I really would be feeling God’s work was honored if nursing home deaths were held accountable.

We can all pat ourselves on the back for surviving a year, or we can fight for justice for the families of loved ones that were killed due to heinous policy.

When NYS Attorney General Letitia James released her findings on Governor Cuomo’s March 24th, 2020 directive to put COVID positive patients back into nursing homes, the Governor’s bright lights started to dim into the accusations of sexual assault. Yet, let’s not forget the AP and others reporting nearly 20k underreported nursing home deaths in New York State! The Cuomo cover – up is worse than Nixon in that it hid DEATH! This is a criminal offense and obstruction that has eyes at the FBI and DOJ investigating right now!

The other underreported injustice is the fight to be free from domestic abuses amidst the lockdown. According to the IndexJournal reporting, the CDC, the very agency telling us how important and safe lockdowns would be, also reported that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men have experienced domestic abuse . (IndexJournal). This disturbing trend has to come to light. I read stories of pizza places becoming safe havens for the abused in their communities . Why would the CDC make citizens live in fear not just from a pandemic but from those who live right in the same house? Why didn’t this get much attention?!

Let’s also talk about how this year of pandemic led to many horrific cases of people contemplating suicide. According to the Washington Post, 1 in 4 young adults had at one point seriously considered suicide . (Washington Post) As far as actual suicide deaths a a result of the lockdown, numbers aren’t as prevalent . Yet, for the stories of those who have taken their lives during this time, their families must be recognized and cared for!

How could these government leaders not know putting COVID positive patients in nursing homes lead to deaths ? Oh wait they definitely did and criminally cooked the books as not to be tweeted by then-President Trump, are you kidding me? By the same token, how could the CDC not work harder to combat the affects of the lockdowns they mandated on this country ?

After the horrible death of George Floyd, fighting for justice is what 2020 ended up being about. The rallying cries of ‘no justice , no peace’ rang out and then riots broke out.

No riots, no protests for the families that lost loved ones in the nursing home disaster just because the media LOVED CUOMO. Let’s protest affects of these COVID policies which also led to injustice!

James Dolan and Wollman Rink , A Match Made in Heaven

If you hadn’t seen it, Wollman Rink in New York City has had to be saved by the Central Park ice skating community.

How did we get here? When the de Blasio administration made the decision to cut contracts with all Trump organization institutions in New York City, they left Wollman rink staff, families, and kids in a state of panic that the very rink Trump saved could be taken away from out right from under their skates

Personally, not one skater on that ice should be held responsible for the insurrection of the Capitol on January 6th. Yet, that is what Mayor de Blasio is doing , and it shows his citizenry does not come first for him.

After a Change.org petition saved Wollman’s shutdown for just a few more weeks, there is a lot more work to be done!

New York City Parks Dept. Is holding bidding for a new owner to operate Wollman Rink, which by the way not just does winter skating but they do have outdoor activities for the community as well.

The one businessman I can see truly saving Wollman Rink is Rangers and Knicks owner James Dolan. The Rangers and Wollman are such a natural fit considering the rink and hockey ties. Just a few years ago, the Rangers held an outdoor practice at Wollman Rink and Garden of Dreams has often hosted galas .

If Dolan were to come along and save the rink, he really would be doing the Central Park ice skating community a service and the city should encourage it!

Fact of the matter is, I didn’t see one person on that rink really care about the Trump Organization name on the boards, on the concourse or anywhere, they just wanted to skate!

If the city ends up offering the operations but doesn’t encourage an actual buyer, then lives will be upended and I thought the Mayor of the City of New York is supposed to protect the citizenry, not tear it down!

I expanded on this in my latest Podcast on Spreaker !

A Stimulus For Who?

Last night, President Trump authorized a $900 BILLION stimulus. The most incredible thing is, we only will see 600 bucks weekly of this pork belly bill!

I am getting tired of either side using American lives as leverage to fill coffers of foreign countries and institutions that may not always look out for the USA.

The tragedy of it all, is that President Trump had no choice at all but to sign it after even the GOP denied the 2,000 dollar measure for Americans .

Government needs to make sure these packages are for Americans, and let us be at ease! We should not be asking just WHO is gaining a stimulus from OUR own government!

UPDATE 1 6:41 PM EST 12/28/20: House approves measure for 2,000 dollar checks for Americans!

Raising Taxes WON’T Kill the Debt!

In 2016, I was against the 33,000 deleted e-mails because I believe Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal in fact dealt with impact of four American soldiers’ lives and their families killed by terrorists in Benghazi. The e-mail scandal of Hunter Biden isn’t my focus this time around. I am feeling the policy research more-so four years later, maybe a sign of maturity?

We now have PROOF Biden would like to tax the hell out of Americans. According to the Washington Examiner, the Tax Policy Center has concluded that Joe Biden’s tax plan would be added up to two trillion dollars in taxes. (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/biden-plan-would-hike-taxes-2-4-trillion-over-a-decade-socking-it-to-corporations-and-the-wealthy-analysis-finds) Paul Bedard, also of the DC Examiner , notes the James Madison Institute found Biden’s plan to cost $36 TRILLION, 3 trillion alone by eliminating President Trump’s tax cuts! (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/bidens-agenda-to-cost-36-trillion-up-to-49-000-per-family-study)

While that is a BIG jump, my first question about these proposal studies deal with debt. We have a climbing debt that is between 22 and 23 trillion dollars. Does Joe Biden ‘s plan mean he wants to lower the debt by taxing us or simply use the Office of the President to tax us as much as possible? I don’t believe you can kill the debt by taxing Americans, especially amidst a business-killing pandemic!

I believe paying taxes is essential to the American way, but not collectively paying trillions of dollars to the government if it comes off as the government just wanting our money to fund programs the average American may not want to support. Secondly, to try and impose this plan on hard-working business owners would outright SINK the small businesses barely surviving and kill the entrepreneurial spirit DESPERATELY needed to combat the unemployment, business closures and even depression/suicide rates that are riddling America right now.

I find it incredible the Dems’ always obsess about taxing its own people, but never want to ask allies to pay their fair share. As I am writing this, it hits me. Other countries are so much more important to be allies with than be allies with the American people! I’m also not advocating let’s completely ruin our relationships we need to have across the world. However, that is the way we kill the debt, by not taking on OTHER people’s paychecks just because we are America.

I do find it amazing, the same people that say tax the one percent and take money from wealthy Americans are the ones forgiving fraudulent medicaid, social security, and even welfare transactions. They also applaud giving out stimulus after stimulus, because they also lick their chops ready to take it back through exorbitant taxes. We MUST not let the Government make us independent on them for income the rest of our lives!

Yes we are a gateway for everyone, at home and globally. We must start by asking our politicians to remember the best gateway to keep America strong is through American towns and cities that are the lifeblood of the country, that allow us to hand out money to our allies in need. The minute you ask for more to deplete the lifeblood is the minute we truly are weakened from the inside!
