Lawfare schemes of scoundrels weakened this week by a unanimous 9-0 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that neither Colorado nor any other state that has tried to take Donald J. Trump off the ballot can do so. And thus, the anti-Trump resistance’s Fourteenth Amendment campaign has collapsed. But insofar as the legal gambit compelled the candidate to spend money on legal defense, and energy better devoted to his campaign, it worked.

And the anti-Trump, anti-America First gang has more up their sleeve with the other five lawfare battles Trump is now engaged in as they work at depleting the former President’s financial resources and absorbing his time and attention. And some may cause real damage.

The New York lawsuit that delivered a financial judgment against the President is the only case so far that has drawn blood — $454 million is a lot of money, even for a wealthy man. Of course it hardly matters to the deranged officers of the New York state justice system, from Attorney General Letitia James to Judge Arthur Engoron, that the judgment is likely to drive business out of the state. What corporate executive in their right mind would risk financial ruin under a crime-infested fiefdom that makes financial war on its political opponents? But as we’ve seen repeatedly over the last few years, the resistance will burn down its own house if they think it will advance the anti-Trump cause.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case is expected to start at the end of the month and as weak as it is, the chances of some charges sticking in a New York City courtroom are high. The Georgia case against Trump has turned into a gruesome version of the “Real Housewives,” with the corrupt financial and romantic relationship between Fulton County DA Fani Willis and her boyfriend, prosecutor Nathan Wade exposed for all to see. There’s no doubt any reasonable judge would throw the case out, but in the current climate, and a Democrat-run jurisdiction, who knows how it plays out?

Both of Special Counsel Jack Smith’s cases are foundering. His classified documents case against Trump won’t start in the Spring, as Smith wanted, and may not start until after the election. Smith’s January 6 case against Trump, the resistance’s show-stopper, is also delayed. And with the Supreme Court scheduled to rule on the obstruction charges brought against Trump, the cornerstone of Smith’s indictment is wobbling. If the court rules that Smith is misapplying the law, it will not only weaken his case, but likely free hundreds of January 6 defendants, convicted on the same charges.

In sum, that’s six different instruments of lawfare that the resistance has deployed in an all hands-on-deck effort to crush Joe Biden’s political opponent. Trump has won some and been hurt by others. But the fact that it is even possible to use the law to hobble then destroy the ruling party’s political rivals shows that our justice system isn’t what it was just a decade ago.

And it’s hardly the system the Founding Fathers designed, but as their vision reminds us, our Constitutional Republic was built for a virtuous people — and what we’re up against is something else entirely. We’re facing down a pathological faction that prizes power at any cost, regardless of the destruction it’s sown across the country. And prepare yourself for more, because there’s no doubt that in the coming months the resistance will pick up more weapons to wield against the Republican candidate, his family, his aides, and supporters.

But it is always darkest before the light breaks at dawn. Prepare yourself, your family, and friends, too, for our fight for the Republic will echo through ages. We’re worthy of our great nation’s history, and let us commit to earning the future praise of our children and grandchildren for whom we fight, and who will pass down the story of this monumental time for years to come.

Please participate in our Reader’s Survey. Your insights and thoughts are important as we learn what is on the minds and in the hearts of our fellow Americans. We read them all and share some of them Mondays at 9 a.m. during America’s Future live broadcasts with our Executive Director Mary O’Neill on America’s Mondays With Mary. Thank You!

America Patriots - Kirk Cameron

Kirk Cameron is an actor and an award-winning television star. He’s also a children’s book author whose titles include As You Grow, Pride Comes Before the Fall, and most recently The Fox, the Fair and the Invention Scare, all published by Brave Books. Kirk’s story-hour readings at local libraries around the country have enchanted large and adoring family audiences — and drawn protests from “Woke” activists who see him, rightly, as a determined opponent of their destructive anti-family agenda.

He and Brave Books are also collaborating on a new children’s TV series, “Adventures with Iggy and Mr. Kirk” — a crowd-funded initiative launching a show he compares to one of his favorite shows as a kid, “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.” We recently spoke with Kirk about family, faith, America, and raising strong children in a culture often pointing them in the wrong direction.

Why did you decide to start writing children’s books?

My wife, Chelsea, and I have six kids that we love dearly, and since they were young, we understood it was our job as parents to instill good morals and values into them so that they would be ready to withstand the evil in our culture. Our kids are now older, and we recently found out we’re going to be grandparents, which is so exciting! I want to be someone who does everything in my power to pass along the values that give this country so many blessings. Writing children’s books gives me and other families the ability to pass on these values for generations to come.

Why do you think your books have caused so much controversy?

The books that I have written teach kids about the fruits of the spirit, like love, joy, humility, and loving your enemy. These are things that spread love and the light of Christ. One thing that I know to be true is that the darkness does not like the light. So, when I wanted to come to read my book about humility in public libraries, I received a ton of opposition.

What were your favorite books as a kid?

The books that I adored reading when I was growing up were Frog and Toad Are Friends, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Stuart Little, and Brown Bear Brown Bear

Do you think mainstream children’s entertainment is intentionally harmful, or do the people who produce it just not know better?

There’s a reason children have become the target. Morals and values are instilled in kids by the age of ten. If you can shape the next generation’s ideologies, then you have a chance to control the nation’s future. This is why we have seen such a big increase in harmful content targeting our kids. There is a conscious effort to thwart the pro-God, pro-American values that make this country so great.

What is your prayer for America?

My prayer is that parents and grandparents will continue to wake up to what’s going on in our culture, and God will move them into action, creating a shift in our nation that will lead to the blessing and protection of our children and their futures.

The Rights Of We The People Prevail
Supreme Court over a red sky

The Republic and the Will of the People prevailed this week, and so did Donald J. Trump when the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) published a unanimous ruling in favor of President Trump and in the spirit of our Constitution in Donald J. Trump v Norma Anderson, et al., Dkt. No. 23-719.  And, America’s Future is proud to have helped score that win with an Amicus brief urging unanimity in the Justices’ decision.

Tuesday’s primary (March 5, 2024) in Colorado proved the vital need to uphold voter rights. Over a half of a million votes or 63.34% were cast for Donald Trump in the state’s Republican primary as of 4:00 pm on March 7. These 548,312 voters were able to exercise their right to vote for President Trump as their favored presidential candidate because of the unanimous decision by SCOTUS.

America’s Future takes seriously its role in filing Amicus briefs consistent with and in support of our mission and the rights of all American citizens. In the past 12 months, our organization has filed more than 25 briefs, which we will report on in this newsletter’s next edition.

Editor’s Note: Amicus briefs are court filings submitted to a court by a non-party with the intention of offering interpretation and/or insight as to points of law or fact related to the case, but which have not already been adequately addressed by the parties.  Significantly, Amicus briefs can highlight how the outcome of a case will impact society or implications of one outcome or another with respect to a particular group or industry.  The filer is called an amicus curiae, Latin for “friend of the court” and the brief can be filed in support of a particular party or position or not in support of either party, but rather to explain a nuanced legal theory.

Action Required For Election Integrity
Get Involved

The foundation of our Republic and the power of We The People is our vote. Without free and fair elections, our vote is meaningless, and tyranny is not far behind. Despite those who believe that the 2020 election wasn’t rigged, ample evidence exists otherwise, particularly in mail-in ballots, and more Americans, regardless of party affiliation, are questioning the integrity of our elections.

A key element of election integrity is each state’s voter registration information. If this information is not properly maintained, managed, or updated, the likelihood of fraud and abuse increases. Considering what was found in voter rolls in 2012 in a national PEW study – over 1.8 million deceased individuals were listed as voters, and at least 2.75 million Americans were registered in more than one state – imagine the shape of state voter rolls in today’s political environment, massive numbers of illegals entering the country, deep-seated corruption at all levels of government, no accountability…and the list goes on.

Much has been written, debated, and rehashed over the last few years about state voter rolls. But that is not enough. Action is what is needed, and that action depends on every American patriot getting involved, contacting their state election agency, demanding to check the voter registration records, sticking to the task, and letting their voices be heard.

America’s Future Election Resource Library is a starting point for getting involved and learning more about your state’s election process and registration records.  It provides information used to contact your state election officials and to conduct meaningful reviews of your state or county voter rolls. Gather your family, friends, and neighbors, and start today. The 2024 election will dictate the future of our nation. Make your vote count by getting involved, demanding accountability from election officials, and raising your voice.

Tools Of Tyrants

Collectivism Empowers Tyrants

This is the twelfth entry in our In Focus series identifying and exposing the tools that modern-day tyrants are using to thwart the will of We The People for power and control. To access previous articles, please click here.

There are so many dangerous ideas circulating in our society today, one searches for a root problem that has spawned all of these other bad ideas.  Perhaps if we could just identify and expose that root problem, other secondary problems would improve.  Let’s give it a try.

Although there are other candidates, perhaps the most dangerous “ism” is Collectivism — the notion that undergirds Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Statism, and other Dictatorial and Totalitarian forms of government.  Increasingly, Collectivism is used as a justification for the type of Crony Corporate Capitalism that currently dominates our nation.

Our rulers want us to yield to their decrees, and one technique they use is to persuade us that we should be willing to sacrifice freedom and personal autonomy for the greater good.  Not so curiously, the greater good usually benefits our rulers and their billionaire buddies.  Collectivism provides our rulers with a justification for imposing all manner of evil policies.

We are not allowed to have gas stoves.  It is illegal to sell an incandescent light bulb.  We are required to buy only electric lawn mowers and chain saws in some states.  Soon we will not be allowed to buy cars with internal combustion engines.  One day, we may only be allowed to buy meat grown in a lab or food made from insects.  Which of these policies did we, the People, vote for?  As individuals, we may prefer to have choices that are being foreclosed, but that freedom is being taken from us — for the collective good, of course.  We are told not to resist, because our rulers in Washington, D.C. or the 50 state capitals are acting in our best, long-term interest: going green, fighting climate change, or cleaning up our air and water.  We have learned that plans to subsidize solar energy actually were designed to subsidize businesses owned by friends of the ruling class.  We lose our freedom, and they make buckets of money.

Like our present government, Robin Hood would “steal from the rich to give to the poor.”  While that sounds like charity, it is not.  Pretending to be a beneficent Robin Hood, Collectivism provides cover for the ruling class of a society to take and distribute its resources to its friends.  Through taxation and inflation, Collectivism violates the Commandment “Thou shalt not steal.”  Exodus 20:15.  It encourages sloth by those receiving welfare, violating “if any would not work, neither should he eat.”  2 Thessalonians 3:10.  It robs resources from people who would want to engage in acts of real, voluntary charity, motivated by love — the kind of assistance that has lasting benefit to the recipients.

One of its most famous descriptions of Collectivism is the doctrine of utilitarianism attributed to John Stuart Mill, that our national objective should be to achieve “the greater good for the greatest number of people.”  Under this doctrine, the will of the individual must be subordinated to the need of the collective.  We are being conditioned to sacrifice, for the good of the State.

Of course, that raises the question — what is the “greater good.”  During the COVID-19 debacle, the experts told us that the greater good was that all should take the shot.  Never before had any “vaccine” been given to pregnant women, but now a vaccine that had never been properly tested on anyone was being given to those pregnant women — for the greater good.  One psychological study extolled those who valued the collective good, even if it caused them to become sick:  “Collectivism has been identified as a protective factor against COVID-19 – perhaps due to increased conformity with social norms regarding prevention behaviors.”

The great and powerful Dr. Anthony Fauci closed down hundreds of thousands of small businesses for months, many to never open again, to “stop the spread.”  Surely Fauci was making decisions in the collective good, right?  Well, on July 21, 2021, Fauci was named the 2021 Humanist of the Year by the American Humanist Association which describes itself as: “Advocating progressive values and equality for humanists, atheists, and freethinkers.”  This is among the most leftist and anti-God groups in the nation.  It is not neutral on matters of religion — look at its website and see how it shakes its fist at God — which tells you something about the man it honored and how he makes decisions.  Fauci admitted: “I look upon myself as a humanist” and “I’m less enamored of organized religion than I am with the principles of humanity and goodness to mankind and doing the best that you can.”  Who would trust such a man to know the common good even if it smacked him in the face.

Subsuming the unique individual, and his or her rights, to the great Collective will is the central theme of Marxism.  Karl Marx asserted the doctrine:  “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”  Charity to meet the needs of others is a virtue, but to be charity it must be voluntary.  Marx had little use for anything voluntary.  He was advocating not for peace, but class conflict.  He wanted to tear down capitalism through revolution and thereby create a utopian society.  Grove City College Professor Paul Kengor, author of The Devil and Karl Marx, concluded: “there is the distinct sense of something demonic in Marx’s personal life. Those who knew him most intimately consistently described him in demonic terms:  His son wrote to him as “my dear devil,” his father suggested that he was “governed by a demon,” and Engels referred to him as a “monster of ten thousand devils.”  Considering the death and destruction his ideas caused, this theory is not hard to believe.

Certainly not all calls to assist others are wrong.  A half century ago, in his Inaugural address, President John Kennedy challenged Americans:  “ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.”  That statement had overtones of collectivism, but only two months later, by Executive Order, JFK established the Peace Corps, encouraging young people to volunteer (not be coerced), and therefore one can believe that JFK had benign motives.

One recent version of Collectivism came from a video from the World Economic Forum — a now deleted video – entitled “8 predictions for the world in 2030.”  The first slide in the video shows a smiling young man and promises:  “By 2030, You’ll own nothing.  And you’ll be happy.”  (If you want to verify this, just Google the quotation on the slide and see how many “fact checks” have been devoted to denying or explaining away this tactical mistake by the WEF.)  If you’ll own nothing, who is owning everything?  Chances are, it’s those running the World Economic Forum.

Collectivism, in practice, is brute force. “Collectivism is backed by compulsion, where one side wins and the other loses, rather than voluntary trade for mutual benefit.” The “common good,” writes John Allison, “has been the Trojan horse of every tyrant throughout history from Stalin to Chávez.”

Collectivism leads to censorship — in the public interest of course.  The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals found that to promote the COVID-19 shot, and for other “good reasons,” the federal government “suppress[ed] millions of protected free speech postings by American citizens.”  Missouri v. Biden, 83 F.4th 350, 392 (5th Cir. 2023).  Allowing individuals to spread misinformation and disinformation is certainly not in the public interest, our government believes, so they censor – in the common good.

Collectivism is not just the opposite of Individualism, it is the opposite of Liberty.  As Mark Steyn suggests: “[t]o rekindle the spark of liberty once it dies is very difficult.”  The time is now — Americans must recapture the truth of Holy Writ that we are all created, individually, by God.  This truth undergirds the Declaration of Independence, which holds that “all men,” individually, are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” Since these rights – rights not given us by government, and thus they cannot be taken from us by government — even if the Dr. Faucis of this world thinks it advances the common good.  Those entrusted with governmental power are not our rulers, but our servants, and when they exceed their powers, they must meet resistance, before it is forever too late.
