Just a reminder, and a thank you. Confounding the "EeBeeGees."
We couldn't have done what we did this week without the support of Larry Pratt and GOA. From David Olofson to the Gunwalker Scandal, they've been on point.
And you know what? I checked Larry's garage and the parking lot at work. There isn't a weenie wagon in sight.
No weenie wagons at GOA.
LATER: I would also like to sincerely and humbly thank all those folks who made it possible for me to even get to DC and to be able to be in position to do as much as possible to drive the story forward. Others, who eschew all publicity, have helped me out while here.
The campaign for the truth of the Gunwalker Plot is perhaps the most lopsided contest in history, save David and Goliath. In fact, it has been generated and sustained by such improbabilities that it impossible not to see the hand of God in it.
I keep getting information back that those on the other side, the "EeBeeGees" (Evil Bad Guys) of the plot and cover-up, are obsessed to find out whose "intelligence community" pawn I am. "They can't believe," one source said, "that you are able to do this on your own. They just KNOW that you are the tool of somebody more powerful. They're trying to figure out who in the bureaucracy is doing them in."
Of course, the open secret is that I don't do this on my own, but they discount the obvious fact that small groups of "powerless" people can defeat their power. It must be the result of insidious conspiracy on the part of other powerful people or groups.
Well, thieves always think someone is stealing from them and liars are convinced that they are being lied to.
It is perhaps not so surprising, given the fact that diligent, determined citizenship has been so rare in this country for so long, that it should be unrecognized when applied citizenship unexpectedly punches the "EeBeeGees" of the Imperial Federal government in the gut with the binary weapon of mass destruction they most fear -- truth and light.
The other day I floated the latest iteration of Absolved to a potential editor who took me to task because it has no single leading character, no "super hero" (or small group of super-heroes) who rushes in and saves the day. That it doesn't is deliberate, although I certainly realize that it makes it harder to follow. BUT THAT IS HISTORY. That is real. There is no "Army of One," to quote the recent stupid (and failed) Army recruiting slogan. Armies -- and societies worth living in -- are great teams of voluntary individuals, each with his or her own unique, free, sacred and inviolate soul with all its strengths and abilities, weaknesses and sins.
To say that any common purpose worth achieving is "won" by the efforts of one person is a denial of reality. Could the Revolution have triumphed by the efforts of Washington alone? Or Sam Adams? Could it have done without rifleman Tim Murphy's bullet at Saratoga? Or his commander Daniel Morgan who saw the essential thing and gave the order? Or the Over-the-Mountain men at King's Mountain? And what of the back-country wives who put the rations in their men's haversacks, along with the bullets melted down from lead deposits grubbed out with their own hands? Could it have done without the preachers of the Black Regiment? The rogues of the smuggling ships? And what of the fat Boston bookseller Henry Knox who transformed himself, by himself, into an accomplished artillery officers and troop leader? The Quaker's son Nathaniel Greene?
God used each as a tool to accomplish his purpose. Likewise today.
And I thank and bless Him for all of you.
History, I am found of saying, is made by determined minorities.
YOU are such a minority.
Compared to the "EeBeeGees" we fight in this cold war of liberty versus soft tyranny, we lack every resource except one. Our determination. Our determination to use whatever pitiful resources we have. Our determination never to stop until we have won, or we are dead.
Sociopathic bureaucrats, demagogic political appetites dressed in thousand dollar suits and their transactional morality hirelings do not operate that way. They cannot even comprehend that such people as you exist. It is beyond their ken.
So they look for conspiracies where there are none, and that is a measure of their distance from reality. When mere citizenship looks like conspiracy, you are beaten -- because you cannot defeat an enemy, or an idea, that you don't understand.
They are beaten. They just don't know it yet.
It is an eternal war, this war of liberty versus tyranny, and our side wins. Because we don't fight for power, or money, or safe retirement. We fight for liberty, for ourselves and that of our childrens' children.
They are beaten. Not by dint of resources, but of will. His, and our own.
Again, humbly, thanks for the opportunity to serve with you in this struggle.
PS: I'll be back in Birmingham this (Wednesday) evening. I'll try to post then.
