From a Romanian Newspaper :


We rarely get a chance to see another country's editorial about the USA

Read this excerpt from a Romanian Newspaper ... The article was written by Mr. Cornel Nistorescu and published under the title 'C'ntarea Americii, meaning ('Ode To
 America ') in the Romanian newspaper Evenimentulzilei ' The Daily Event' or 'News of the Day'.

Why are Americans so united? They would not resemble one another even if you painted them all one color! They speak all the languages of the world and form an astonishing mixture of civilizations and religious beliefs.

On 9/ll, the American tragedy turned three hundred million people into a hand put on the heart. Nobody rushed to accuse the White House, the Army, or the Secret Service that they are only a bunch of losers. Nobody rushed to empty their bank accounts. Nobody rushed out onto the streets nearby to gape about. 

Instead the Americans volunteered to donate blood and to give a helping hand.

After the first moments of panic, they raised their flag over the smoking ruins, putting on

T-shirts, caps and ties in the colors of the national flag. They placed flags on buildings and cars as if in every place and on every car a government official or the president was passing. On every occasion, they started singing: 'God Bless America !' 

I watched the live broadcast and rerun after rerun for hours listening to the story of the guy who went down one hundred floors with a woman in a wheelchair without knowing who she was, or of the Californian hockey player, who gave his life fighting with the terrorists and prevented the plane from hitting a target that could have killed other hundreds or thousands of people. 

How on earth were they able to respond united as one human being? Imperceptibly, with every word and musical note, the memory of some turned into a modern myth of tragic heroes. And with every phone call, millions and millions of dollars were put into collection aimed at rewarding not a man or a family, but a spirit, which no money can buy. What on earth unites the Americans in such a way? Their land? Their history? Their economic Power? Money? I tried for hours to find an answer, humming songs and murmuring phrases with the risk of sounding commonplace, I thought things over, I reached but only one conclusion...

Only freedom can work such miracles.

[American's seem to have forgotten how we felt on 9-11 2001.  We felt like a nation then.]

Thank you for you impressive background information.  Clearly your words in this discussion are well-founded!

In order to wage this spiritual battle, we must:  1.  Call on Almighty God, 2.  Organize, and, 3.  Recognize that the importance of James 4:17 is foremost—  

But, the most crucial knowledge needed by the People is:  What is "right?"  Sadly, too many Americans don't understand the answer to that fundamental question regarding the nature of our unique American Republic.  More than a century of collectivist indoctrination has been so successful that many of our people have only a false concept of our Bible-based founding principles.  They have been fed so much collectivist propaganda that their political philosophy is a jumbled mess of "social justice" lies.

If we are to set our Nation’s course right, it is imperative that we organize—as you say—with the first priority being to educate the people.  We cannot organize and direct a united stand to show the governmental servants that WE are Alpha until many more of us understand what that means!  We cannot successfully demand that government adhere to the Constitution and our constitutional laws as long as many of us don't understand the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Holy Bible!

Education is the key!  (Not, "instruction!")  Nothing else we do matters unless we unite, armed with the Declaration, the Constitution, and the Bible, with the LORD as our Banner!

Where do we begin to set the record straight?  With Marbury v. Madison (1803), the infamous unconstitutional U.S. Supreme Court decision that the States let stand, triggering the inexorable march from the constitutional Republic the Founders established to Tyranny.

I would be pleased to receive the articles you offered!  I will email you as invited.  Thank you again!

The words I write are not mine alone. In the 90s I associated with the late General Ray Davis, a former Commandant of the USMC, with the late Gov. Evan Mecham, a WWII fighter pilot who spent time as a POW; Sen. Don Rogers of CA; retired Judge JJ Boesel, Dr. Greg Dixon who founded the American Coalition of Unregistered Churches and others who helped "tweak" the plan I had prepared. As for me, I retired as Chief of Plans and Programs for a General's Staff.

You said "We the People must show the servants that we are Alpha!  They are Beta, and they WILL do what is right..........." This is the name of the game but everyone hoping to do so must recognize the need to be organized. They must first recognize the importance of James 4:17 and honor it by doing what is right.

While AFA is providing a valuable service the Alliance could do a great deal more in organizing a resistance should it choose to do so.

My latest effort is in working with a couple of others in trying to get a web site up. I'd gladly email you a couple of articles if you will email me at

I agree!

We need to pray for President Trump to hear God's Voice over the cacophony of ignorant advisors who are wise only in their own minds.  We need to pray that he will seek and receive Wisdom, in order to recognize Truth over evil and stand only for Truth!  He is trying, but, he is being influenced to abandon certain righteous causes because he is listening to many human voices—getting-out of the UN is one example, Betsy DeVos and her support of Common Core through her version of School Choice is another (Charter Schools are legally obligated to instruct to Common Core "standards")—

I think I would greatly enjoy your book!  I especially like the title!  Tyrants are childish bullies metamorphosed into evil dictators.

No, President Trump cannot restore our Republic by himself, nor should he!  I agree that we must experience a national repentance and turn back to God, before He will fully bless America again.  And, the move must reach into the so-called "churches" that have forsaken Him for the expedience of tax-exemption and other political favors, many preaching in the name of the evil called, "social justice," rather than in the Name of Jesus Christ!

My last comment was in response to john.  I posted it before seeing Walter's new one!

I agree, Walter!  Your proposed plan is excellent!  Implementation is, indeed, the logistical dilemma.  However, I recall the Logical Fallacy of the False Dilemma.  We seem to be caught on the horns of a profoundly important dilemma!  But, we must remember that those horns are ephemeral imaginings of a false dilemma.

In this case, we agree on the message, we just need to know how to implement it.  Therefore, the dilemma evaporates as we do recognize the importance of James 4:17— "Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin."

You ask, "how do we do it?"  The only point missing from your plan is the motivator that tells us where and how to take it to We the People.  In America, the People are Sovereign.  God established this Great Nation upon His Foundation; this means We, the People are the authority and the power of America in Earth.  Government in all its forms is our servant; it is time for us to jerk the reins and yell, "Stop!!!"  But, we derive the authority and power from God, in His Will and Purpose, guided by His Wisdom, driven by His Omnipotence—by His Word, facilitated by His Spirit.  "That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God."  1 Corinthians 2:5

So, before we can successfully join Him and wield the authority He has given us, we must seek to be centered in His Will, and to trust and have faith in Him to guide and go before us, as we work to share with our Fellow-Americans the knowledge and understanding we hunger for in our newly-awakened state.  The harvest is ready.  God will show us what to do and where to go to reach those He has prepared to join us in standing in the breach!  Just look at how the ranks of AFA have grown by leaps and bounds!

The treasure house of wisdom stored on the Internet in sites such as Arizona Freedom Alliance, and others, is the resource; we just have to ask God to show us what more to do and to give us voices to speak to those who want to hear the answers.

The most important part of the mission is to reach the People with the goals and the plan to achieve success; God will inspire in them the need to ACT, locally, in cities, counties and statewide.  The immediate goal being to figuratively jerk the chain and get the governmental beast's attention.  We the People must show the servants that we are Alpha!  They are Beta, and they WILL do what is right and lawful, or they will be back on the street with us!

We must fan Liberty's Flame in every heart God opens to hear Truth.  He knows whom they are, He just wants us to give Him the conduit to speak to them through us.  We have to let Him open our mouths and give us the words!

From there, the Fire will blaze like a cleansing forest fire to renew Our Nation under God in the Liberty He creates in us!

If God is with us, who can stand against us?

Itasca: There is no doubt but what we are engaged in a spiritual battle. I pray the Lord sent us Donald Trump as his emissary to lead the world's believers in an effort to succeed in restoring the Godly principles and procedures captured by our Constitution. But if he hopes to Make America Great Again we must be in control of our own destiny. This demands exiting the UN, bringing monetary policy into compliance with the Constitution, repudiating the unlawfully and unrepayable debt resulting from the current policy and returning America to being a nation of laws.

I hand carried a copy of my book "To Tame a Tyrant" and a letter to Mr. Trump while he was in Las Vegas. They explained these facts and more to him. Unfortunately, I have yet to see any of the criminals responsible for our plight indicted or any action by the administration to address these pivotal issues. That doesn't mean he won't and I daily pray God will direct him to try and to protect him if he should.

Can he alone restore our Republic? I don't think so. I believe it will take a national repentance that must begin by our incorporated businesses calling themselves a church to stop thumbing their nose at God by choosing to have a Secretary of State be their creator in violation of the first Commandment. If God is to again bless America I suggest America must again bless God.

Yes!!!  Amen!

And, if I may add a few more thoughts, God's Holy Spirit facilitates the Will of the Father, working by His Son, Who is the Word (The Divine Expression), in and through those who Believe in their hearts.  He creates us in the state-of-being we call "Liberty," and when, in His Good Pleasure, He chooses to move us on that moment's notice, His Holy Spirit fans the smouldering dynamic embers of Freedom into Liberty's Blazing Fire—manifested in the righteous determination of Our Nation as we are awakened to the dire straits percolating in that septic swamp that was pulling us all down to its putrid depths.

That loud sucking sound being heard by the swamp denizens is the sound of God's Holy Spirit pulling the plug on the filthy swamp as He once again awakens the Bastion of His Liberty—America, the Sleeping Giant—from our slumbers!

". . . the LORD stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, . . ."  2 Chronicles 36:22

The LORD has blessed us with our own American Cyrus, through whom He is working to help US Make America Great Again!!!!!!

Like Cyrus of Old, America's Cyrus is not perfect, but God works with us in our weaknesses to Move Mountains!!!

"And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness."  1 Corinthians 12:9.

And, until the Last Trump sounds, He is working for our good.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11

God Bless America!!!!!

Comment by Walter Myers on June 28, 2017 at 12:45pm

All you say we must do is true Itasca. But the question is: how do we do it? I suggest people might do the following. 1. agree America's problem is that too many people have in the past and continue to fail to recognize the importance of James 4:17 and to honor it by doing what is right. 2. agree the most damaging manifestation of this problem has been Federal action that has exceeded the clear bounds of its jurisdiction under the Constitution and thus violated Rights guaranteed the people. 3. agree on a goal of restoring to the states and the people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed them under the Constitution. 4. make a commitment to work at realizing one or more of the many major objectives lying on the goal's critical path.

I suggest America's greatest needs are: 1 a National Leadership Team in agreement with the above who are capable of and willing to identify the objectives and develop a plan that will permit people to unite in pursuing actions of common interest while assuring that retain their freedom to pursue their special interests and 2. the tools needed in support of the plan's implementation; to include a communications system to facilitate the transfer of information among the plan's various elements and the uniting of people sharing common concerns.

I believe that only when these needs are met will America's patriots be able to hold the criminals responsible for our plight accountable by returning our nation to one of laws rather than a lawless nation in which politicians are immune from any law. Since government was created to secure people's unalienable rights any government act designed to diminish or destroy anyone's ability to enjoy a right is an unlawful act and those responsible for it and its perpetuation are criminals. In that many of the acts were taken in support of our Constitution's enemies seeking to establish a New World Order on its ashes the criminals are guilty of treason.

Trying to get America's patriots to unite around these thoughts is the challenge.

Freedom and Liberty are byproducts of God's work in our country. Only his holy spirit could move people, in such great numbers, on a moments notice. The good in the people was awakened, even if only briefly in some, and this nation started it's climb out of the pit. We have had setbacks and victories in this war but I believe it is that same holy spirit which awakens people to the political swamp we have set about draining with our President Trump. It is the holy spirit which is creating a resurgence in American Values which will Make America Great Again!!!!

Comment by Itasca Small on June 28, 2017 at 2:49am

Thank you, Jim, Pat and Walter!

Pat:  Yes, I imagine many Romanians still see America as the shining city on a hill they would like their country to emulate, in spite of the dire state in which Our Liberty under God precariously teeters on the edge of the collectivist abyss.

Walter:  Our God-given Liberty is, indeed, under assault from many fronts.  And our precious Land of the Free is not the bastion of freedom envisioned and secured by the founding fathers and by each generation succeeding them, at great unimaginable cost. 

But, I do disagree with your premise; if Americans did not "still live in the land of the free," we would not be free to engage in this discourse.  Much has been stolen, but, not yet All.

The united spirit the Romanian author saw shining from the news items he cited still quickens the hearts, minds and souls of the vast majority of my Fellow-Americans.  The rest of the world knows:  We ARE a blessed people—still—

As your letter recites, the challenge we face on multiple fronts is daunting!  As your comment implies, the self-defensive instinct is to fight.  But, now, the most insidious Enemy is Within, and we MUST seek God's Will and Wisdom to right our ship-of-state peacefully, and set our course once again by that "well defined lawful form of government left to us by America's founders."

We must implore God to Bless America with wisdom, courage and understanding.  We must restore our Constitution, including the Bill of Rights, as the blueprint for a restrained federal government whose actions are severely limited to those duties specifically delegated to it by the States.

We the People must demand that our States rein-in the federal government to conform to the original intent of the Constitution, in conjunction with the federal government meeting its obligation to defend our borders and to insure a republican form of government in every State.

We must educate our Fellow-Americans with Truth:  The federal government works for US!  Laws passed by the federal government are ONLY valid and supreme when they conform to the limits of the Constitution.

Which is preferable?  Educating the people to restore our God-given Liberty and the Freedom to Choose, or, calling-upon our Honored Veterans to take offensive actions against our Fellow-Americans?

I choose education.

Comment by Pat J on June 27, 2017 at 7:32pm

I agree, Itasca.  Your commentary is very inspiring and thought provoking.  Kudos to you.  I note this was posted in 2013 when Romania was coming out of the dark of communism.  America surely seemed like the greatest light.  I bet many in Romania still would love their country to be more like ours even with the problems we are experiencing.  With God's grace, we will return to that shining city on a hill and #MAGA
