founding fathers

by Lorraine Newman

Because those old white wigged founders 244 years ago knew what they were doing. 

They knew it was better to be self-reliant than government dependent.

They knew that the guarantee of free speech leads to greater freedom of information and would serve the country's defense and overall safety.

They knew that less government regulations enables people to pivot quickly when faced with difficult problems to solve.

They knew that no one person, be they king or queen, president or commander in chief, should be the sole charge for the welfare of an entire populace.

Extortion is the act of obtaining from a person, by force, intimidation, or undue or illegal power, something of value.

Peace, it is what we ALL want:  Peace at home, Peace on the streets, Peace in the Middle East, Peace in the World. In a few short weeks, our radios will be filled with songs extolling, praying, crying for “Peace on Earth, Goodwill toward All Mankind.”

The Impact of Soleimani’s Death, by Jim McKinney, 10 Jan 2020

The US Strike on Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani was the most significant event in the Middle East in nearly 70 years.  The unmanned “Reaper” drone strike at the Bagdad Airport on 2 Jan 2020 that killed Soleimani was precise, rapid with no civilian casualties.  Even though it has turned the region upside down, I believe it will be strategically important in the long term. 

Soleimani was not the second most powerful man in Iran, he was the most power individual in all of the Middle East.  He directed the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps ‘Quds Force’, the Iranian external special operations and intelligence force. The IRGC protects the Iranian Theocracy, the Quds Force spreads their influence.  Soleimani was the man that kept the religious rulers in power.

wa mental healthThe Washington State Department of Health publishes a monthly analysis on public mental health. Liberty Road does not support nor deny the information within this report, we do believe that it is important for the public and for public policy makers to understand the wide and varying impacts that their decisions, or lack of decisions, is having on the General Public.

“Heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who, heard it from another you’ve been messing around.”

Gossip, we have all been caught up in its ugly web at sometime.  That’s why the beginning of this Reo-Speedwagon song is so catchy. It brings us back to our days in high school or a bad stereotype for women in the 60’s.

  1. We solved the wrong problem.
  2. Never listen to an epidemiologist again.
  3. The “Scientific” Models Suck.
  4. Groupthink will kill more people than the virus, so don’t let it suck you in.
  5. Follow the science not the politicians or fake news media.
  6. Change our laws to prevent any leader from ever trampling our liberties again.
  7. Make all critical medicines and medical supplies in America.
  8. Teach effective problem-solving skills in our schools.

  1. We solved the wrong problem

The problem was defined by epidemiologists from the CDC, WHO, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIAID Director as a pandemic that would kill millions of people and overload our healthcare facilities resulting in more uncontrolled deaths and chaos. So, to prevent that from happening our politicians listened to these trusted experts called epidemiologists.

We have been witnessing an interesting event over the last several weeks. An unknown person walked into the office of Congressman Adam Schiff and spoke with his staffers about an incident they had heard about. The controversy is: Was what they heard an illegal request because a threat was involved, or just a normal conversation between leaders of countries? Does the President’s real or perceived intent make this conversation illegal?

What we are talking about is not in contest. We know it was a telephone conversation between President Trump and the newly elected President Zelensky, of the Ukraine. We have read the “cliff notes” of the conversation and the full transcript of conversation itself. Some heard from President Zelensky that he had regarded the conversation as normal.

We do not know much about the complainant. This person has been hidden from us. Assumptions are being made that this person is a federal employee. That they have been called a whistle-blower by those the person spoke to. Are they or not?

Before we rush off to judgment, we need to know what we are talking about; preferably before talking heads begin to change the definitions that are commonly held by us all.

“The Best Defense is a Proactive Offense,” What we can do to fortify our immune systems to mitigate CoV19 infection, authored by EJ Ledet

From research I’ve recently read,  I believe the CoV19 virus  maybe disabling our immune defense mechanism by blocking the body’s zinc transporter molecules, ZIP9 proteins and/or IgG-3/C antibodies . The ZIP nomenclature was adopted from Zip Codes identifying different parts of the body .

~ the Road to Liberty begins and Ends with All of Us

For decades we have been watching the Marvel heroes and villains battle across our screens; we all know that is fantasy.  A person who has extraordinary powers battles a known enemy.   When you look at the definition of hero in the dictionary the  very first description is “a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability.”

In real life true heroes are almost unrecognizable.  You know them, they are in your neighborhood, they are on the bus in the seat next to you, they are your co-workers.  They can drive you crazy, they can make you angry, they make you laugh when sharing stories of their lives.  Look around do you see them?
