Politics Should Stay Out of 9/11 Commemorations

The plain and simple fact is that Washington, DC forgot about the first responders.

It took stalwarts like cancer-stricken fmr. NYPD Detective Luis Alvarez , comedian Jon Stewart , and so many more to fight for those who gave their all and their lives on 9/11/01 !

The only Rep I can remember was Congressman Peter King who pushed for the Zadroga Bill to be re-funded.

The fact that DC had to be screamed at to wake up and take care of our first responders is why politics should be left out of 9/11 commemorations . I do like the fact that speeches by politicians were eliminated from Ground Zero ceremonies in Lower Manhattan.

Whether in NYC or small town America, communities and brethren of the Finest and Bravest honor 9/11/01 the best way possible. They honor it amongst themselves and strengthen the community bond every year around this time. I pray the bonds continue to be strengthened all days of the year not just around a day of tragedy such as September 11th.

20 years later, the divide in America is very evident and it’s the POLS and the media that have made it so. The local firefighter, the local police officer, the neighbor next door all keep this day in their hearts and they don’t push an agenda , that’s how it must be honored . They also honor it with God and faith VERY MUCH in mind!

As a fifth grader 20 years ago, I had wanted to know the next move that President George W. Bush was going to make to defend this country. Back then, politicians like NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Governor George Pataki and yes, W, all worked to heal us not divide us.

20 years later our politics is tainted and the goodness and kindness exuded from Washington , Albany and City Hall has all but dissipated. That’s why it’s up to communities in America to NEVER FORGET!

Alex Garrett Podcasting Let’s Loose on Afghanistan Disaster

On his YouTube channel and his podcast, Alex Garrett looks at the disastrous exit out of Afghanistan from a New York City perspective .

It is a slap in the face to NYC that the region we have fought so hard to get rid of terrorism easily falls apart in NYC. Alex points out that it’s as if defending the city 20 yrs later from terrorism means nothing to the Biden administration.

Alex also expands on the idea that the grief suffered for 20 years of those who lost family members fighting in Afghanistan has been returned watching the work fall to ruin in just one week!

Alex Garrett Podcasting Covers Census 2020

On an earlier edition of Alex Garrett Podcasting, Alex talked about how the 2020 US Census completely eroded the idea that this country isn’t the land of opportunity for everyone .

The fact is the Census has shown that our beautiful country known as America truly is diversifying, just ask CNN (see below)!

When you hear professors like Chanelle Wilson say America is only for white people (https://redstate.com/alexparker/2021/08/13/professor-insists-u-s-is-only-for-white-people-talks-redemption-when-there-is-no-america-n426300?utm_source=rsmorningbriefing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl&bcid=5de854bbc553d249a7935e4212809c6f) Alex Garrett podcasting notes how the 2020 Census totally debunks the theory!

This podcast also discusses how the 2020 Census blows up the critical race theory arguments discussed in classrooms across the country!

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!

We Are Now Amidst a Scamdemic

Imagine leaning into the idea of a 4 million dollar profit as your state is in the grips of the worst pandemic anyone on this Earth has seen since 1918.

The New York Times , THE TIMES, has the most damning headline I’ve seen since the news of under-reporting started to break . It reads ‘AS CUOMO SOUGHT $4 MILLION BOOK DEAL, AIDES HID DAMAGING DEATH TOLL’. I have written here on this blog before that this is even worse than the Nixon cover-up because those were just tapes, these are DEATHS that have been hidden! Criminality I have to believe. For more on the Times article take a look here, https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/31/nyregion/cuomo-book-nursing-homes.html

I implore those that truly love Cuomo to this to day to adapt to the idea that once summer hit, NYS went from being in a pandemic to a scamdemic, and the Governor smiled and laughed all the while.

He VISITED other places like Atlanta when he told us all to stay in our homes , dare I say basements. That was a warning sign to me that he really even stopped taking COVID-19 as serious.

He’s not the only one that I feel has scammed us as a nation. I at one point considered welcoming wheelchair-bound NC Congressman Madison Cawthorn because of his comeback story of surviving a major car crash and becoming a Republican US Congressman .

Until I found out he falsified the circumstances around his 2014 crash in a speech at his Christian college. Cawthorn painted himself to have been left for dead after the paralyzing car crash by his friend, Bradley Ledford. Ledford then told his side of the story which had shown Rep. Cawthorn to be Dishonest . Yet, imagine describing a bold faced lie as a harrowing story right into being elected to Represent in Washington , D.C.

Lying about the situation which caused someone to adapt should be called out and held accountable.

It’s one thing to scam your way into government funding by lying about disability, but to intentionally mislead about the circumstances of a disability FOR VOTES is hurtful to those who have to adapt every day to thrive in this world being disabled! Way to be part of the scamdemic, Rep. Cawthorn!

Being a New Yorker the impetus to write this certainly includes Governor Cuomo and the Cuomo cover-up! However, in Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz has found himself in hot water! I feel he too has scammed his constituents into believing he is this hard-working family man.

For a 30+ year old man to be proudly stating he’s been a church-goer to be even entertaining idea of palling around with a 17 yr old is quite alarming. Thankfully this had not happened while with his fiancée . However, by not showing any kind of discipline with this relationship, his behavior contributes to the scamdemic of leaders not doing as they say.

Albeit, personal lives are never going to be an issue on the ballot and these lives of public figures will take their course as they may. I do think Cuomo policy of re-stating nursing home patients with COVID is a huge story that this Gaetz saga will now kick to the side, and that’s not right either!

In all of these examples, for us the average citizen and busy voter/taxpayer, we must find a way out of this scamdemic and I think the best way is to ALWAYS ASK QUESTIONS!

STATEMENT FROM ALEX GARRETT PODCASTING AS JOE BIDEN SWORN IN AS 46TH PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

The inauguration of President Joe Biden comes with an air of change and a fresh look at both the White House and the Capitol. In all of the Inauguration and evening celebration, the energy felt was not so much an intense look at the White House as has been the last four years, but a really calming feeling the White House energy and the energy of the new President won’t be as chaotic.

I always root for America, and will be rooting for the success of this incoming Joe Biden administration ! Red White And Blue always, no matter the President!

STATEMENT FROM ADAPTIVE WITH ALEX GARRETT On Election of Joe Biden

As the streets are celebratory , I’m feeling reflective and cautious. I pray that there was no interference at all. If there was all the celebrations will be like a false start. Litigation is a big role in this , and once that is completed, I pray a peaceful transition of power does happen. America over politics every day and I think the most American thing to do every four years is accept the results and know that God has us on a path that is on the up and up. I did vote my conscience this year and am proud of that! But you will not see me celebrate just yet until I see America on the right course and it starts in the White House, if the results for President- elect Biden stands. Or if by some wild way, President Trump gets a chance at fixing this !

Grow Up, We Are Under Attack!

It’s not two planes crashing and destroying our Twin Towers and 3,000 American lives. It’s not violence and terror in the form of a school shooting . It is something that has been expected for a while and we must call it what it is. A biological warfare attack.

An attack on this beautiful country known as America ! Unfortunately, we have all become used to this term ‘coronavirus’ for way too long. To the point where sickness is overshadowing the bigger point we are under attack. Yes, it’s accurate to call it COVID, but no one has yet to call it biological warfare !

For those laughing at our President getting sick, grow up! This is a serious matter, the President of the United States is sickened by an unleashed virus from a Chinese lab and therefore is under attack! It’s stunning and appalling people are cackling like Hilary.

How come it is we can’t be funny about anybody on the Liberal side over stupid things Biden has said, but y’all are allowed to laugh at the Leader of the Free World under attack? Don’t tell me it’s a free world , because you aren’t making it free for those with opposing views!

When did it hit me President Trump was under attack? I’ll be upfront and say he did not look as well fighting through this virus, I believe he will pull through! However, it was COVID , unleashed from a Wuhan lab, that put him there. It all leads to the fact that the Chinese government purposefully covered up so as to secretly hope it got to POTUS, and perhaps we could call this an assassination attempt by a foreign enemy! I’ve not seen President Xi apologize to America or to President Trump for Trump getting it, have you?

There’s more to this, however , POLITICO is reporting all our enemies are basically licking chops as our President works to recover at Walter Reed. They are salivating at the idea we are down for the count right now . According to Politico, they were told “There is always the possibility that adversaries will seek to exploit the information space and talk propaganda,” said one defense official. “We are definitely monitoring and keeping aware.”(https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.politico.com/amp/news/2020/10/02/trump-team-watch-adversaries-exploit-presidents-illness-425098)

I believe it’s more than just the election process our enemies would hope to exploit (again). They want physical harm done to us as evidenced by this virus, and they want even more. During this pandemic we have had to monitor Iranian ships (https://news.usni.org/2020/04/15/video-iranian-attack-boats-harass-u-s-navy-coast-guard-vessels-in-persian-gulf); we have had to head off Russia warships (https://www.newsweek.com/russian-warships-fishing-fleet-alaska-1528520?amp=1) ; and of course had to deal with China concealing information on the most deadliest disease known to date .

We have enemies and if you want to laugh and not confront the enemies, I suggest quitting whatever position in America you hold today . I’m not happy or laughing or partying in the streets that our POTUS has been stricken , and oddly enough we’ve been here before as a country during a pandemic . Yet , there was no laughing .

Sarah Fling and Tevi Troy have documented when President Woodrow Wilson got ‘violently sick’ during the 1918 pandemic . He actually got sick in 1919 and according to research , they found a Washington Post article noting, “The country will be anxious regarding President Wilson until he is again at work … It is a time when an hour lost means the loss of millions of hours to these individuals who are awaiting to begin reconstruction … the allied world hopes for the sake of its material interests that his illness will be light and brief.” (https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.usatoday.com/amp/3607579001)

It appears Woodrow Wilson also in some way or another downplayed a deadly pandemic. However , Troy notes in his book (https://www.newsouthbooks.com.au/books/shall-we-wake-the-president_how-america-has-has-not-and-must-deal-with-disasters/ ), “The federal response to the influenza outbreak in 1918 can best be described as neglectful. Hundreds of thousands of Americans died without President Wilson saying anything or mobilizing nonmilitary components of the U.S. government to help the civilian population,” Troy writes in “Shall We Wake the President: Two Centuries of Disaster Management from the Oval Office.”

POTUS Trump foolishly makes fun of the masks and the fact Biden wears one for safety , but let’s not forget the resources he sent to NYC alone to fight this virus! He had and has mobilization efforts to fight this contagion constantly !

Today we have people admittedly laughing, not showing any anxiety that our President has fallen ill, oh how the times are changed ! We all need to confront these realities together. Even if Trump has been boisterous , I am glad people like Rachel Maddow, Chris Cuomo and Joe Biden and other media and Dem leaders have wished this President well, the every day Liberals that seem to find it funny must take their lead and wishing him well!

We must stop this attack !

No, Not That Way!

We seem to be living a society that says you can do this, but how dare you do that!

These examples pop up daily . The most recent is the celebrity privilege on full display at Barclays in Brooklyn ! While you and I could get fined 10k for not observing quarantine thanks to Mayor de Blasio, celebrities get to waltz in as if this city is open again. Can’t make it up!( https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.www.complex.com/music/2020/08/vma-music-stars-from-covid-19-infected-states-exempt-from-nyc-quarantine-rules)

We talk about how bad white privilege is in society , yet someone needs to say other privileges exist, like celebrity privilege ! As far ‘no, not that way ideals go, groups can gather unquarantined , yet there is still multiple pauses on business here in NYC! In essence, you can gather but not in the way it will benefit business owners , customers and the economy!

This same idea applies to indoor dining! How is it that barbers , now gyms (except for New York City Venezuela ) can open yet restaurant owners are on the brink as the days of being locked down continue to drag on! We the citizens, we the people must be given all the keys to our city back!!

As far as social justice ‘no not that way’ perfectly describes reactions to kneeling of players before the game. Personally, I don’t believe in kneeling during the National Anthem. However, when people go on and on about how bad the riots are , one would think peaceful forms LIKE knelling to make a point would be acceptable. That just never seems to be the case. For instance, when the Yankees knelt (before the Anthem) , some fans disowned the team , which was head-scratching at the least !

Where I wish things were different deals with signage and apparel. We’ve seen these fancy masks and some yes are rightfully so pro-Trump and pro- Cop masks . However, in a video this week a woman shared that at Sam’s Club it appears she was asked to take her pro-Blue Lives Matter mask because it ‘offended’ other shoppers. I would love to hear stories from you to prove this is actually happening.

I honestly believe it could be! We’ve seen now Goodyear this week spin its wheels after an employee posted how the tire company would disallow Blue Lives Matter and MAGA hats, but allow employees to wear BLM apparel. Since the story broke, Goodyear has in fact responded. (https://corporate.goodyear.com/en-US/media/news/a-message-from-goodyear-to-our-customers-partners-and-associates.html ). The fact Goodyear got into this mess is a metaphor, I believe, on how companies think in today’s world.

Can we also talk about parking lot Church gatherings being interrupted by law enforcement? There is no excuse for it now that the DNC made a parking lot party for Joe Biden after accepting his nomination ! So, let’s allow churches to congregate again fully, since DNC really didn’t care about safety the whole time !

One sector of society is telling the Democrats , Republicans and everyone in between what to do, actually having their cake (shaming those who don’t wear masks) and eating it too (shaming those who wear Trump masks) ! Because they want you to be THEIR WAY and constantly remind us , ‘No, Not That (OTHER) Way’!

States’ Rights Should Be Cherished, So Why Aren’t They?

So why aren’t they? That is my question . I was not happy with President Trump believing he has ‘total control’ over the states. Which is why I’m glad he backed off his statement yesterday, and gave signs he would work with Governors to re-open America. Doesn’t that phrase, ‘Re-Open America’ send chills down your spine? I heard that uttered by VP Mike Pence and I got the feels of American Spirit again!

To even discussing re-opening America slowly is a small victory. Anyone who floats this idea is actually doing the right thing to give hope rather than despair. Do the people just wanting to be pessimistic of opening by May not want their fellow Americans to have hope? Do they want America to lose it’s spirit?

The American spirit was built on just 13 colonies. These colonies rebelled against King George III’s rule and formed the United States of America. The King right now isn’t President Trump. While COVID is certainly not King-like, what these 7 states are planning is a rebellion against CoronaVirus!

I admire the precision with which Governor Andrew Cuomo has been looking at the day-to-day stats when discussing re-opening. The idea should be to open up slowly and when the time is right. Only states can really decide this for themselves. So, SHOUT-OUT TO STATES’ RIGHTS!

As I have been thinking on this, another thing crossed my mind. The same people actually advocating states’ rights, during CoronaVirus don’t exactly cherish the idea of states’ rights. By pushing universal healthcare, Medicare-For-All, and other progressive policy, it shows on a normal day just how invasive these Governors truly think the USA should be.

For Dem Governors to praise Mandates for ObamaCare was not an honor to the Constitution. It gave up their rights to provide healthcare best fit for their residents. So why now do they care of states’ rights? Kind of interesting right ?

Some of these Dem governors trying to open their states up together, have also praised large amounts of regulations. Upping regulations isn’t American. We are supposed to help each other every day, and de-regulation proves to be a big help to Americans that just happen to have a corporation. You let the Federal Government dictate what your state’s regulation should be, you’ll have lost the American spirit.

You let the Federal Government dictate when to open, you’ll have lost the American Spirit. We weren’t built to be controlled, taxed more than needed, and certainly not built to be shut-down.

At the same time, this is the time to realize that YOUR own higher taxes have caused people to leave our state. It’s caused business to leave in rebellion against your tax policies! It also costs human economy because when someone loses their job, they are not exactly feeling on solid ground. These governors can certainly learn at this time to help keep their people afloat by not taxing through the roof!

To the President, I ask, please let the states choose when they should open. To Governor Andrew Cuomo, I ask that you fight hard against those who suggest to you raising taxes. I also ask that you fight against the progressives that want federal invasion of your state residents through higher taxes and one-size-fits all healthcare policies.

None of us are a one size fits all state, so let’s cherish each state’s rights!
