The HIV/AIDS Pandemic: What You May Not Know About Dr. Fauci’s Connection

If you haven’t had enough of this weasel yet, dig in. You’re gonna love this. (Not really.)

Some of you may already know about Dr. Fauci’s connection to the HIV/AIDS pandemic of the 70s and 80s. Heck, I remember the fear we had as kids. We honestly believed AIDS was around every corner and if you so much as shared a spoon with someone who was infected, you had a high chance of becoming the next Ryan White. We didn’t know any better; our parents didn’t know any better. And how could they? They were listening to… you guessed it: Dr. Anthony Fauci. (This clown just doesn’t go away, does he?)

It might seem stupid, ignorant, or segregationist now to think about the “us verses them” mentality we had towards the victims of AIDS and the uninfected. But, honestly, it really shouldn’t; look at the global mentality now towards the unvaccinated. That ideology and fear moves fast in populations who are scared they could die simply by breathing the same air as someone who is “infected.” And that fear is long lived, let me tell you.

The band Hudson McCoy, my father is the one with the beard.

Quick story: My father contracted HIV after he and my mother split up. He was a musician and, after the divorce, went back to a life of music. He was a brilliant, capable of playing multiple instruments, many self-taught. But he was lonely, sad, and found comfort in a crackhead who had, herself, contracted the disease years before through her reckless lifestyle. As much as my father didn’t deserve it, he also knew the risk. He knew what he was getting into with her. She robbed him more than once, had her druggie friends rob him- stealing his classic bass guitar to pawn for drugs- and eventually gifted him the kiss of death. When my daughter was born, he would occasionally come around to see her. Our relationship was never very close and despite living only a few miles from each other, we didn’t see much of one another. So when he would swing by, there was always that tiny piece of me that remembered the fear, remembered the lies. We had learned the truth: You can’t get infected from sharing utensils, a toilet, etc. You can’t. But the fear was still there. Fauci’s Lie was still there and in the back of my head I would find myself doubting, asking “What if they’re wrong?” We are talking about the health of my baby, after all.

So believe me when I say these lies have a very long shelf-life. And I was a child when I heard them. Imagine the damage to our kids, the fear we are instilling in them with every day this garbage pandemic continues. I was 30 when I had my daughter…. so just think on that a while.

How did this HIV/AIDS debacle come about?

It was simple, it was small. It was a remark Dr. Fauci made after a baby had been born infected. This medical doctor who was in charge of the NIH never stopped for a moment to consider that it might be possible for the virus to cross the placenta from mother-to-baby. Instead, he went on camera and told the world that you could contract this disease by touch, by sharing forks and spoons, by sharing a bathroom. Even after it was discovered that the unfortunate baby had contracted the virus while in the womb, there was no going back. The tiger was out of the cage, thanks to Dr. Fauci and all of his “medical wisdom.”

Now I’m not saying scientists know everything. I’m not going to argue that medical doctors don’t make mistakes. But the Fraudster has been on the government pay roll a long, long time and to make such an offhand comment without really considering the way viruses work or the most likely route of transmission is inexcusable. Let’s be honest, imagine if you made a gaff that size at your job. Would you still be employed? Would you be worth over $10 million dollars today in spite of it? Probably not.

In a new video on The Hill’s “Rising”, political commentator, Kim Iverson, says,

“Public panic had intensified and people were fearing they could get AIDS from sharing a toilet seat or even from shaking hands. People living with AIDS were being alienated and ostracized from their jobs, homes, communities…” (emphasis mine.)

Sound familiar? Change “AIDS” to “unvaccinated” and you’ve got the same damn formula.

Let’s not stop there, though. We have more to uncover. According to the article in the citation above, Dr. Fauci and the scientists at NIH immediately went full steam ahead on finding a vaccine. Sure, it never materialized. Sure it was probably to the tune of millions of taxpayer dollars lost. But who cares right? It certainly didn’t warrant enough concern for the government officials to pause their symbiotic relationship with this shyster.

Besides, Big Pharma stepped in with all their manufactured fixes, most notably being AZT. Never mind the fact the damn thing was sketchy as hell and was “one of the most toxic, expensive and controversial drugs in the history of medicine,” according to Celia Farber, who reported on AZT in 1989. Any other promising drug was simply no longer investigated; they had their crown jewel. So not at all like the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, today, amirite? Ours is a completely unique situation…. unprecedented, never before seen.

Weird.

Speaking of the experimental SARS-CoV-2 vaccines being ramrodded into the bodies of billions of people today globally, take a guess what else was “approved faster than any drug in FDA history”? Ding, ding, ding: Winner, winner, chicken dinner if you said AZT.

Gee, one could speculate on the time it took the FDA to review the supplied data on AZT. I wonder if there were thousands upon thousands of pages read in a mere 108 days? Could it be that the FDA has a history of being bribed and bought off by insanely deep pockets? One might say that’s cOnSpIrAcY ThEoRy, but I digress.

“In 1989, Iverson said Fauci started promoting the drug [AZT] not only for critically ill AIDS patients, but for anyone who tested positive for HIV, including those who were asymptomatic and showed no sign of the disease…Those patients included hospital workers, pregnant women, and even children,” Iverson said. “Doctors were stunned.”

“Despite limited data, the NIH went all in on AZT, ignoring evidence that the drug was toxic, caused liver damage and destroyed white blood cells,” Iverson said. (emphasis mine.)

Are you losing your minds yet? The playbook for the 2020 Plandemic was written decades ago by the same jack wagon in charge back then. I’m not going to re-write the article I’ve cited twice, and I am fully aware it’s poor craftsmanship to continue to cite the same source. But this article is badass and you need to check it out. Dr. Fauci is handling this baloney virus the same exact way he handled the last one, and he’s acting like the internet doesn’t exist. He pretends that people with memories don’t exist. But Mr. I Am The Science isn’t the only familiar face from way back then. Advocating for the children as Chairman of the Children’s Health Defense was none other than Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. The same RFK, Jr. that the main stream media tries to paint as a conspiracy theorist today. Weird how that works out, isn’t it?

Just like back then, governments are refusing to look at other options for treatments. They’re ignoring the warnings and the knowledge of competent doctors, pathologists, chemists, physicians, toxicologists, virologists, and immunologists (to name a few). They have tossed out well-documented, well-studied treatments, as well as the preventative care and early treatment rule books, in favor of some completely untested gene therapy. Once again, officials are ignoring the wake of injuries, serious adverse events, and deaths caused by Fauci’s Vaccine. Let’s call it like we see it shall we? He’s the one behind the push for the endless Pfizer and Moderna jabs and boosters. Never mind that he shares patents for both of their vaccines. No conflict of interests there, though, I’m sure. It’s no wonder he doesn’t want to discuss Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine. Why shoot the cash cow? That’d be dumb.

If you’re brain is about to explode with the amount of history-repeating-itself foolishness, join the club. It seems the more we uncover about this sniveling little man the less there is to like about him. The media was quick to demonize Dr. Judy Mikovitz, but turns out she’s been right all along. And if you don’t know her relationship with the Fauch, you should. He’s the one who essentially destroyed her life and her credibility as a top researcher, going so far as to have her arrested and spending half a decade behind bars, despite never being charged.

What? That can happen in the USA?

Look no further than the January 6th “insurrectionists”. (Weird, they’ve never actually been charged with insurrection….Things that make you go “hmm.”)

Ladies and gentleman, if you’re still buying the narrative being put forward by MSM you owe it to yourselves to look into this guy. He’s never been on the right side of history that I can find. He probably should’ve been charged with crimes against humanity long ago, but if history is any indicator it is unlikely we’ll see him behind bars any time soon.

As always, stay deplorable, patriots!

Project Veritas Drops MOAB on Dr. Fauci

Those of us with a working brain have long suspected Dr. Fauci was less than credible. I mean, it’s hard to believe a guy who calls himself “The Science” and can’t take criticism in any way. Isn’t that the whole point of science: to be challenged? Apparently not anymore, and instead of rising up to decry this most basic of offenses against the entirety of human scientific evolution, folks rolled over and agreed. So it isn’t surprising to find out that Dr. Fauci has been less than authentic not only with what he knows and how long he’s known it, but with revealing any of that information to the government.

What do I mean? Despite being called under oath more than once, Dr. Fauci set a precedent for himself to deny, deny, deny any involvement with gain-of-function (GoF) research on this weaponized SARS-CoV-2 virus. He even went so far as to claim that it wasn’t happening even when he was faced with both evidence it took place on American soil and rebuttals from former colleagues and scientists who reviewed the available documentation, announcing “it’s gain-of-function” research. Hillary Clinton would be proud of his level of commitment to the lies and denial.

In a heated moment of questioning between Sen. Dr. Rand Paul and Dr. Fauci, the senator reminded Dr. Anthony “I Hate Beagles” Fauci about his “takedown effort” against three epidemiologists. Senator Paul had this to say:

“In an email exchange with Dr. Collins you conspire, and I quote directly from the email ‘to create a quick and devastating published takedown of three prominent epidemiologists from Harvard, Oxford and Stanford,” Paul said.

“Apparently, there’s a lot of fringe epidemiologists at Harvard, Oxford and Stanford, and you quote in the email that they were from Dr. Collins, and you agree that they are fringe. Immediately, there’s this takedown effort,” the senator said.

CNSNews.com

We know Sen. Paul has been on the warpath for Dr. Science himself, but has he been correct? Turns out, according to recently released documents from Project Veritas, you betcha. The documents implicate NIH as well as EcoHealth Alliance in seeking to do GoF research, but with very little safety measures in place. Among other things revealed in the documents, the suspicion that not only were the vaccines rushed despite not being safe, the entire project should’ve been shut down from the get-go. According to an email by Major Joseph Murphey, USMC, DARPA fellow, Project Defuse had been rejected by the committee assigned to review and approve/reject such requests.

In the email, Maj. Murphy states:

“I’m unsure whether the significance of what I communicated is understood by those that received the report. Decisions with regards to the vaccines do not appear to be informed by analysis of the documents. The main points being SARS-CoV-2 matches the SARS vaccine variants the NIH-EcoHealth program was making in Wuhan; that the DOD rejected the program proposal because vaccines would be ineffective and because the spike proteins being inserted into the variants were deemed too dangerous.” (emphasis mine.)

ProjectVeritas.com

Pretty damning considering all the baloney Dr. Fraud as fed the American public over the last two years. First it was that this wasn’t a lab created monster (it was). Then it was gain-of-function research wasn’t being done (it was). Next he pretended that the NIH wasn’t working on this through Peter Daszak, and that his ole buddy Pete didn’t continue the research when it moved to Wuhan (it was, and he absolutely did). Lastly, and maybe the biggest lie of all, he told the world that the vaccines are safe (they’re not). To top it off, anyone who challenged any of these narratives that propped up by a complicit main stream media were then deemed “fringe” or “conspiracy theorist” despite their credentials. Quite simply, it didn’t matter to Dr. Fauci or the MSM if you were a simple mom with a podcast or the inventor of the mRNA technology himself: you were, in their eyes, a lunatic.

So here we are. It’s now 2022 and millions of lives could have been saved by early treatment with well-known, well-tested, well-documented, FDA approved drugs like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine. People have lost their businesses. Their loved ones died in hospitals and retirement homes shamefully alone. Churches closed their doors and Catholic churches in many areas refused to give the holy Sacraments. Families who vaccinated their children have seen them maimed or murdered. Pregnant women have lost record numbers of unborn and stillborn babies. All due to this fraudster pretending to be the be-all-end-all of science.

Unbelievably, people are still buying the crap from this snake oil salesman.

The same folks who buy organic and shop strictly at Trader Joe’s are lining up their children to participate in an experimental gene therapy, the long-term effects being wholly unknown and apparently of no concern. Tyrannical mayors are demanding vaccine passports to move about cities and idiotic businesses are complying. People are literally losing their lives over this thing while Dr. Fauci continues to sit on the Hill as the highest paid official there. ($420,000 dollars if we are to believe Sen. Rand Paul. That’s a lot of cheese to be so wrong about everything and not have the decency to step down.)

The thing about it is this: Dr. Fauci isn’t the only one responsible.

For every Senator, Congressman, Governor, Mayor, Sherriff, Doctor, media outlet, and so on who have pushed the vaccine on innocent Americans through coercion, you are culpable and should be charged with crimes against humanity. You have broken international law, Federal and State laws by demanding that American citizens partake in an experimental vaccine or they can’t work, go to school, buy food, shop, enjoy entertainment or restaurants, etc.. There has been, to date, no informed consent given and before folks say “I was handed a safety data sheet” or a physician’s insert… that’s not informed consent, y’all. It isn’t, and medical professionals damn know it. When no informed consent is given, the medical profession is breaking the law and their licenses can- and should- be revoked.

It’s beyond time We the People hold these folks accountable.

Stay deplorable, patriots!

“I Always Feel Like…Somebody’s Watching Me.”

Yesterday we touched on the J6 Investigation committee run by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. It’s bad enough that Americans are being held against their will in, what we have come to find out, sub-standard detention. They have been mistreated, denied care, as well as denied several of their Constitutional rights. (Surprise! You can’t just hold American citizens in jail indefinitely without charging them.) Make no mistake, these are political prisoners in modern day America.

Mississippi is trying to expel Rep. Bennie Thompson.

All because the Democrats have a rabid hatred for all things Trump. However, investigating the folks who “broke into the Capitol” on January 6, 2021 isn’t enough for Representative Bennie Thompson (D-MS). He wants to take it a freaky step further and give the definitely-not-corrupt-you-can-totally-trust-us-we-swear government more power to crap all over our Fourth Amendment. What’s that you say? More access to spy on American citizens who have- to this point- committed no crimes? Yep, you read that right. I’m sure it’s not going to be used as a political weapon at all, though.

According to Rep. Thompson, the increased access to surveilling citizens is “necessary to ensure the security of the U.S. government.” Hilarious when you consider that our government is supposed to be run By the People, For the People, yet holds almost no transparency with anything they do at all. (Is there any member of Congress or the Senate who would like to enlighten the American people about the secret slush fund for paying off sexual assault victims abused by members of both institutions?)

Hundreds of people surged in front of the White House for a third straight night on Sunday.

While it may seem noble that Rep. Thompson wishes to ensure that an “attack on the Capitol” never happens again, we can’t help but wonder where all this bravado was when rioters and anarchists were burning buildings in D.C. over the summer in 2020?

Where was this concern when Justice Brett Kavanaugh was having his SCOTUS hearing and a band of raging feminists burst into the room, shrieking and screaming about #MeToo while a Dana Carvey lookalike pretended she had been attacked a hundred years ago at a party no one remembered her even being at? The message is clear: It’s only concerning when the “wrong side” is involved.

In a moment of glaring contradiction, Rep. Thompson is quoted as saying, “As you know, it was clear that we were not apprised that something would happen. But, for the most part, it was the worst kept secret in America that people were coming to Washington, and the potential for coordination and what we saw was there.”

Which is it, Bennie? The Hill didn’t know this was going to happen? Or they did? Because let’s not forget that the heads of security and D.C. police had gone to Nancy Pelosi to request more bodies to protect the Capitol with, suggesting they certainly thought something might or could happen. And because Nancy is the head of security, meaning her orders are final, someone had to give the police the “stand down” order. It didn’t just come out of the ether folks, that’s not how it works. Hell, even the Left leaning New York Post wrote this headline:

Ignoring all that, Rep. Thompson- who also happens to be chair of the House Jan 6 committee- stated that the panel will “recommend new legislation to boost intelligence gathering to prevent future attacks on the U.S. Capitol.” Again, I’m sure the three-letter agencies are totally not weaponized against American citizens and nothing will go wrong with this…right? I mean, if the FBI can find the time in their busy schedules to pause the unnecessary investigation of parents speaking out against school boards for pushing CRT, masks, and other garbage, that is. You know, the same FBI that Merrick Garland sic’d on average every day Mama Bears because elected school board members were whining? Yeah, probably nothing to see there.

Of course, the DHS doesn’t really have that kind of authority. It’s, well, frankly unconstitutional. But that doesn’t stop Democrats. They openly hate the Constitution and every single thing it stands for. So, not to be outdone, Selected Commander in Chief, Joe “Corn Pop” Biden is pulling a dirty move straight out of the pages of President Barrack Obama. He isn’t satisfied with just using DHS to spy on citizens. Too much red tape, not enough loopholes. Especially after the FBI FISA court abuses during the Trump administration. Instead, Biden might use private firms to spy on citizens. You know, because there is less restrictions in what they can/can’t do and how they can come by the info. No wonder Brandon likes China so much. Maybe Xi Jinping gave him the idea?

The swampiness of the Swamp is so overwhelmingly gross, there really isn’t much left to admire about it. Sure there are some great folks doing their best to pull America out of the mire, but the mire is thick and full of self-congratulating cronies who happily take lobbyist monies while simultaneously sinking this great nation further. All of it at the expense of the American taxpayer. None of this foolishness is being proposed by Republicans, so tell me again how Democrats are “the party of the little guy”? Which little guy? If Democrats aren’t hell-bent on destroying this country and tearing apart our Constitution, I’m not sure what their end goal is.

Imagine if they pull this off. It would be the Patriot Act on steroids.

Stay deplorable, patriots!

Rules For Thee: Are You Sick Of It Yet?

Nothing says “We believe our constituents are peasants meant for us to lord over” quite like the current state of the Democrat party. They seem to be either completely unaware of their own hypocrisy or they simply don’t care to hide it any longer. The point is, there are two sets of rules: Rules for thee, and rules for me.

Our first example falls squarely on the shoulders of our favorite imbecile: AOC. After her most recent disregard for the mandates she so strongly pretends to favor, as well as her appalling gaffe over DeSantis’s whereabouts, I can’t say that New Yorkers are swiftly going to “rise up, rise up!” as the cast of Hamilton sang so passionately about. But for the rest of us, we are watching and the social media warriors aren’t letting Sandy off the hook.

While New York City is dealing with even more tyrannical overreach, AOC decided that totalitarianism simply isn’t as much fun as the sunny coast of Florida. Ms. Ocasio-Cortes left the surgical masks (and presumably her vax papers) behind her as she fled her Mandate State for the far less restrictive DeSantis territory. This, despite openly criticizing the way DeSantis has handled the COVID crises for over a year. Guess COVID knows when a member of The Squad is present, and wisely makes itself scarce.

Speaking of vaccination paperwork, back in New York City folks are being arrested at Burger King and children are being tossed from Applebees simply for not producing papers to prove they’ve been appropriately poisoned by Big Pharma. Which is weird considering that a little over a year ago demanding folks provide proof they were eligible to vote was considered racist. We can’t help but wonder if AOC plans to show her papers once she returns to the Big Apple? If someone asks to see them, will she accuse them of wanting to date her? Yikes.

The hypocrisy doesn’t end with Sandy O. Nutty Nancy Pelosi’s contemptibly corrupt January 6th Investigation is a dumpster fire of it. In this article, by Mollie Hemingway, we get a birds-eye view of the sheer lack of self-awareness the martini1 swilling Congresswoman from California seems to posses. If Representative Tanqueray (not her real name) was hoping to convince Americans that this was going to be a bipartisan investigation into the supposed “insurrection” that occurred on January 6th, 2021, she failed miserably.

Maybe it’s because she appointed Shifty Adam Schiff (D-CA), despite his appalling track record of lies and falsification of “evidence”. Maybe it’s because she tossed solid representatives like Jim Jordan (R-OH) off the committee. Or maybe, probably most likely, it’s because Americans remember quite vividly the Summer of Violence and the way the Democrats seemed to gleefully cheer it on.

Hopping in our magical “Way Back Machine,” we travel back in time to the summer of 2020 where none of the ranking Dems could be bothered to denounce the violence, the murders, the destruction of our national symbols and statues, or the burning of twenty different cities, which included D.C.. We can clearly recall buildings and livelihoods going up in flames. We can revisit those colorful spots where churches were destroyed and statues pulled to the ground by idiot Marxists who wouldn’t know true racism if it slapped them in their overwhelmingly unemployed faces.

As a matter of fact, our very own VP (selected, mind you- no one voted for this buffoon), encouraged folks to put money toward the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which assisted in the bailing out of violent criminals as well as rioters caught up in the Mostly Peaceful Protests.

So is it any wonder that Nan’s J6 Investigation is a flaming shambles? Is anyone shocked that social media is exploding over AOC’s total disregard for the suffering of her own constituents? What about the clever pic caught of billionaire Jeff Bezos living his best life with his girlfriend- both mask-less by the way- as a waitress (masked) serves them drinks? Did anyone miss that little example of Rules for Thee?

When does it end, folks?

Are you ready to stop pretending that we are “all in this together” and wake up? There are two sets of rules, which means the justice system is dead. And it can’t be dead, or we don’t have a country anymore. This midterm election is more important than ever. It’s time to remind the Hill of just exactly who’s in charge. No more rules for thee. It’s time we end this.

Stay deplorable, patriots!

1Sara B. doesn’t know for certain Nancy Pelosi is a raging alcoholic with a penchant for martinis. This is merely assumed based off her bizarre behavior at the podium and her inability to not slur while she’s speaking. It could also be weak denture grip.

2022: Something to Believe In?

I can’t help but wonder if I am the only one who didn’t feel much like ringing in the New Year on Dec. 31, 2021. After all, what’s to look forward to? Vaccine mandates? Big Pharma’s push to get our kids jabbed? Crooked politicians siding with their Big Pharma lobbyists at the expense of American freedoms and liberties? Never mind the looming Build Back Better bill that somehow still hangs over our heads because of one wishy-washy Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WVA). Sure he stopped it in its tracks, but then along came the Christmas holiday and we find out today he might be reconsidering some things. Funny how that works out, isn’t it?

All in all, when we look at the trajectory of things since 2020 rolled in less like The Great Gatsby and more like The Great Depression, it is easy to lose hope. However, that’s not who we are or what we are made of. Not here, not on this platform. Not my Deplorables.

You see, this is a year that just might galvanize the GOP. It might be the year that The Silent Majority stops being silent and rises to their tired, work-weary feet (because let’s face it, we’re the ones with the jobs the DNC is taxing us into oblivion over). Why do I think this? Because there are waves happening, ladies and gentlemen. There are waves happening and people are waking up.

Just today there was an article on Bing regarding the 40% increase in fatalities amongst working-age people (18 to 64). OneAmerica, the insurance company headquartered in Indianapolis, came out and admitted this is the highest rate of deaths in young people that they have seen in their history.

“We are seeing, right now, the highest death rates we have seen in the history of this business- not just at OneAmerica,” the company’s CEO Scott Davidson said during an online news conference. “The data is consistent across every player in that business.”

“Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three-sigma or a one-in-200-year catastrophe would be 10% increase over pre-pandemic,” he said.

Okay, that sounds bad. No, horrible. Especially when we consider the very large group of young adults in that range. These are people who just starting their lives. There are folks in that group that are family-age too, meaning the 30 and 40-somethings like myself. Regardless of age, it’s a tragedy to think that folks have been brainwashed or coerced to take an experimental vaccine that ultimately might harm or kill them. But this is also where hope lies. Strange, isn’t it?

People are seeing these deaths. People actually know other people who have been harmed by these jabs. They have heard heartbreaking stories of children like Maddie de Garay who’s life has been forever altered by the greed and maliciousness of Big Pharma, and the sheer dereliction of duty by the FDA. Insurance companies are coming forward. Coroners, funeral directors, doctors, nurses, scientists… they’re all beginning to come forward and push back. Locally near me, a band of nurses fought back– and won!- against the hospital that was pushing them to take the jab.

This isn’t a hopeless case. This isn’t a hopeless year, never mind what happened two years before. We have the midterms coming and the Democrats are sweating, especially after their stunning loss in Virginia earlier in the fall. We are seeing an increase in young, pro-America First Republicans starting to make their moves in politics. Biden’s approval rating is tanking faster than the Titanic on a cold April night, especially among young people- people historically the most pro-socialist if ever there was a group. That alone is shocking and interesting. Kamala Harris is so unlikable she decided to write a book and title it “I’m Speaking”, which is ironic considering literally no one is listening. And we haven’t even touched the hot topics of inflation, supply shortages, and our disastrously open Southern border.

So this isn’t the year to throw in the towel. This is the year that we demand change. We demand our Republican representatives to man or woman up and do what is right for the sake of this country. We push back hard and remind them we aren’t going to comply with the unlawful mandates. (If the vaccine was about our health, would they have to threaten our livelihoods?)

We don’t stop showing up to school board meetings, to PTAs, to townhalls, to rallies… We don’t stop vocalizing our dissent. We don’t stop pulling our children out of failing school systems. We. Don’t. Stop.

In fact, we get louder. We get louder and louder and louder until they hear us from the rafters. We get down on our knees and we pray to the only one who can save us: God Almighty. We fast, offer penance, we say rosaries, we make sacrifices. But most of all we pray, and we pray damn hard, because if this train is going to turn around it will be by His will. And at the end of that line we need Americans to see that we are strong in faith, in community, and in love. If we want to set things right, we need to get right.

You see, the road ahead isn’t going to be easy. But at this point, we are two years into this battle and are seasoned veterans of the fight. Sure, we’d like to sit back on a beach, sipping Mai Tais, and digging our toes into the sand. Let’s face it- if we have to show vaccine passports to travel, most of us aren’t going anywhere tropical any time soon. The road isn’t going to be easy, but we never thought it was. Things worth fighting for are usually not easily won. That doesn’t mean we give up.

This is OUR year. And we are ready. Stay deplorable, patriots!
