American Eagle and Flag

Remember the phrase “the walls are closing in”? It was the slogan the press used all four years of Donald Trump’s term to warn that he was in big trouble, his time was up, the evidence was damning, it was only a matter of days before he was through, etc., etc. In this scheme, they were the walls, the media, in tandem with political operatives as well as foreign and domestic intelligence services, closing in on the American president, as well as his aides and his supporters. It’s true that the damage done to the Republic by that sinister confederation of demonic forces is inestimable.

But the reality is that the walls didn’t close in then and they’re not closing in now either. In fact, the cracks are starting to show, and grow. And it looks like anytime now, the walls will all come tumbling down.

This week we learned that Jack Smith, the special counsel weaponized by the Biden administration to imprison the opposition leader, asked Twitter to provide data on the millions of Americans who ever retweeted or liked one of Trump’s social media posts. The move was meant to scare Americans. It was also designed to cut communications between the presumptive GOP presidential candidate and his base by making them afraid to even follow him on social media. Thus, it’s more election interference, and voter suppression. It’s an act of terror in fact.

And how did Americans respond? By driving up Trump’s poll numbers even further. He leads Biden by 2.6 points nationally in the Real Clear Politics (RCP) Average. It’s Trump’s largest lead in the RCP average ever.

Americans aren’t scared. We’re fed up with the corruption and the lies. We see through all the information warfare campaigns devised to paralyze us with fear and anxiety. We’re fighting back and we’re glad to be joined by people like Elon Musk. He sees through the lies and punches holes in the wall. He’s suing Media Matters for trying to bankrupt , formerly Twitter. Musk visited the Israeli towns and kibbutzes where Hamas slaughtered thousands, including Americans, and he told the truth the media tried to hide.

And we’re buoyed by the men and women across the world who’ve also had enough and are voting to end the corruption. Cheers, Argentina, for electing a new president with the wit and wisdom to drain the swamp in Buenos Aires. And congratulations, Holland, for voting in a government that prioritizes the Dutch society and economy rather than illegal aliens.

There’s momentum building across the world and we feel it. It reminds us of the central fact of our civilization — we are born free. And from that it follows we are our own leaders, our own government. We the People are sovereign.

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 - Jordan Schachtel

Jordan Schachtel is an independent journalist who writes on a wide variety of issues, foreign and domestic, for The Dossier. An avid critic of COVID regulations, Jordan warned early on that the federal and local response to the respiratory virus would lead to government abuses of our liberties. He also writes about Middle East affairs, with special attention to the blunders committed by U.S. policymakers that threaten our national security. Recently, we spoke with Jordan to get his thoughts on what’s going on in our great country.

Why are we seeing so much support for Hamas and other terror groups in U.S. cities and across U.S. college campuses?

The problem is twofold: red-green axis indoctrination and the physical import of individuals who are ideologically aligned with Hamas. The college campuses have further degraded, but they have an updated roster of students who step on campus on day one with an extremist worldview.

More than twenty years after 9/11, are we seeing the rise of radical Islam here in America?

Just as the rise of Al Qaeda and ISIS sparked a global radical movement, the October 7th Hamas massacre has emboldened militant Islamists within the United States. Let us hope that law enforcement is ready to tackle the threat.

Do you think that the politicians, public health officials, pharmaceutical executives, and media that pushed COVID regulations, from mandates to lockdowns, will ever be held accountable?

Sadly, no. The whole of D.C. was complicit, so they won’t hold themselves accountable.

What are the most important topics you’ll be covering heading into the 2024 election?

The activities of Big Tech and the administrative state and how they will inevitably once more attempt to tip the scales in favor of a regime-approved candidate.

What is your prayer for America?

That we can once more live up to the label of being the greatest nation-state force for good that the world has ever known.

Raise Your Voice – Citizen Participation Matters
We The People with Quill

Accountability may be coming to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and its disastrous Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) Program, thanks to whistleblowers and citizen participation in the rulemaking process of the Department’s proposed rule.

As of noon today (November 30, 2023), over 32,500 comments have been submitted through the Federal Register in response to HHS’s October 4, 2023, proposed rule entitled, “Unaccompanied Children Program Foundational Rule” that, if adopted, would circumvent accountability and produce even more harm, abuse, and irreparable pain and suffering to innocent children. America’s Future formally filed its own comment opposing codification, which you can read here.

“Every American must come forward to protect children from this Department and its diabolical actions,” said Mary O’Neill, Executive Director of America’s Future. “We cannot turn away. We cannot be silent. There is no cause more worthy to fight for than the safety and security of the precious innocence of a child. I urge you to get involved and submit a comment opposing the proposed rule. Hopefully, of the thousands of comments already submitted, the majority object to the HHS proposed changes, and accountability is near for that Department.”

In addition to submitting a comment this week opposing HHS’s proposed rule, under O’Neill’s leadership, earlier in the month, America’s Future issued a call to action for the public to do likewise. The organization also released an exposé detailing the first-hand knowledge and experience of four whistleblowers speaking out about the “horror after horror” in the HHS UAC Program at the southern border. More than 1.5M viewers have watched Where Did The Children Go since its release on October 26, 2023. And, as noted in America’s Future submitted comment, O’Neill also testified before Florida’s Statewide Grand Jury, which has taken the reigns in investigating national consequences of the perilous UAC program, at the same time focusing on its own jurisdiction.

As more fully set forth in America’s Future comment, the proposed rule at issue, is without teeth, thus, is useless to enforce any regulatory scheme arising out of America’s southern border crisis of epic proportion, let alone protect the hundreds of thousands of unaccompanied children abandoned and placed in harm’s way since the Biden administration came into office. The comment explains,

The NPRM purports ‘to provide care and custody for unaccompanied children in a manner that is consistent with their best interests.’  88 Fed. Reg. 68908, 68916.  But a careful reading reveals that the NPRM appears designed to provide regulatory cover for the ORR’s ongoing failure to meet its current legally mandated obligations.  It does so by apparently lowering the threshold of care required in investigating the backgrounds of potential placement for Unaccompanied Children immigrants, regularizing a deeply flawed system which places vulnerable children at serious risk from human traffickers.

Kirk Cameron’s refreshing voice of determined optimism comes through loud and clear in Episode 7 of America’s Future Not On My Watch with host Liz Crokin, investigative journalist and a PDPC Advisor. He speaks with clarity about the need to push back against immorality in society, especially for children, and that with God’s grace, good will overcome evil when good people take action.

Kirk is known as a child actor in his role as “Mike Seaver” from the 1980’s sit-com Growing Pains. But he is well more than that. He is a devoted husband, father to six children, filmmaker, author of wholesome children’s books that teach Biblical principles and American values, and a determined activist and leader in the fight against obscene materials in schools and libraries. He has traveled the country hosting faith-based story hours for families and children. This effort to bring wholesome children’s book readings into communities has brought him notoriety in the public arena as he has had to battle the trans mania and drag queen mob, but that’s fine with him.

“Don’t retreat…get on offense,” he advises. “We need to have the mindset of winners rather than being complainers about the culture around us. Let’s be creators of the culture around us so that those who are enemies of God, family, country, that they start whining and complaining that the good guys have finally got a ground game and are pushing the ball down the field in our direction.”

Watch Episode 7 above to learn more about Kirk’s vision to preserve American values and protect the children, and about his latest book, As You Grow, and his work with SkyTree Book Fairs.

In Focus Using The Congressional Impeachment Power

Impeaching President Biden for Selling Influence to Foreign Governments

This is the fifteenth entry in our IN FOCUS section examining the impeachment power to help give readers a historical and constitutional context to this political process. To access previous articles, please click here.

Almost all of the mainstream media continues to defend Joe Biden against any and all charges of impropriety.  A story this week by the Associated Press states:

Republicans are considering holding an official House vote [in December] to authorize their impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden, as the party looks to formalize a process that has yet to yield any direct evidence of wrongdoing by the president.  [Emphasis added.]

Really?  As nationally syndicated conservative talk radio host Chris Plante often says:  “The Democrats and the News Media … but I repeat myself.”

By any standard, the case for impeachment of President Biden is compelling.  Biden is accused of bribery, financial impropriety, and abuse of power for personal gain — but before we examine the basis for these charges, let’s remove any doubt that these are all impeachable offenses.  When we entrust governmental power to an individual, we must know that they are making decisions in the public interest — or at least, not making decisions to line their own pockets.

In the past, financial self-interest has been one of the primary reasons undergirding successful impeachments.  The Constitution expressly provides:  “The President … shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”  U.S. Constitution Art. II, sec. 4 (emphasis added).

In impeaching President Nixon, the Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee issued a 1974 report entitled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment.”  That Report noted that “[c]omments in the state ratifying conventions also suggest that those who adopted the Constitution viewed impeachment as a remedy for usurpation or abuse of power or serious breach of trust.”  Although “Abuse of Powercertainly could be a ground for impeachment, abuse of power to enrich oneself certainly is a ground for impeachment.

The House Judiciary Report pointed out that Founding Father and Governor of Virginia Edmund Randolph, in the Virginia ratifying convention, “cited the example of the President’s receipt of presents or emoluments from a foreign power in violation of the constitutional prohibition of article 1, section 9” as an example of an impeachable offense.  The Judiciary Committee report also noted that:  “[e]ach of the thirteen American impeachments [before 1974] involved charges of misconduct incompatible with the official position of the officeholder.  This conduct [includes] employing the power of the office for an improper purpose or for personal gain.”  (Emphasis added.)  Of the eight federal judges who have been convicted and removed, five were removed for improper business relationships, financial improprieties such as bribery, and perjury.

Now, let’s review some of the evidence collected thus far about Mr. Biden’s financial improprieties that the Mainstream Media says does not exist.

The House Ways and Means Committee recently announced that new evidence provided by IRS whistleblowers “connects the Biden Family global influence peddling operation to more than twenty-three countries on four different continents.”  (Emphasis added.)  “Millions of dollars were flowing through subsidiaries and LLCs to avoid taxes and shield visibility into how the money from foreign sources, including countries like Ukraine, Russia, and China, went to different entities and Biden family members,” said Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO).

Even some media outlets have begun to admit Biden’s aspects of his involvement with his son’s corrupt business dealings with Ukraine and China.  Politico has noted that Biden lied about his claim to have never met with Vadym Pozharskyi, a top executive of Ukrainian energy company Burisma.  The Daily Mail reported that an FBI informant told Congress that Burisma paid Joe and Hunter Biden $5 million each to help end a probe into Burisma’s “money laundering, tax evasion, and corruption.”

The media once admired Biden’s prowess as Vice President when in 2018 he claimed that he held up $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees hostage until Ukrainian prosecutor Shokin investigating Burisma was fired.  Now that they know Hunter was on the Burisma payroll for no business reason, they have begun to understand Joe was inadvertently admitting to being corrupt when he said:  “I looked at them and said: ‘I’m leaving in six hours.  If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.’  Well, son of a bitch.  He got fired.”

Politico also now admits that Biden’s claim that Hunter never “made money from China” during a 2020 debate with President Trump was false.  In fact, “Hunter Biden acknowledged hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments from a Chinese energy firm, CEFC, and people associated with it.”  In addition, “[e]ntities controlled by [Biden brother] James and Hunter Biden ended up receiving nearly $5 million in legal and consulting fees from the … company.”  But, as Hunter himself stated:  Joe Biden is the “brand” and his “family’s only asset.”

Former Hunter Biden business partner Tony Bobulinski, who has interviewed with the FBI and testified before Congress, stated that “Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised” by their corrupt payments connected to foreign governments.  Bobulinski also torpedoed Biden’s claim never to have discussed Hunter’s overseas business dealings with him.  “That is false,” Bobulinski said.  “He said it was ‘crystal clear’ that Hunter Biden had discussed the [China deals] with his father.”  President Biden claims no involvement, but Hunter’s former business partner Rob Walker revealed that “Hunter Biden arranged for his father to stop by a lunch with their Chinese business partners at the Four Seasons in Washington … to help him close a deal with CEFC executives.”

Biden’s actions are not just corrupt; they raise the very real specter of extortion by foreign governments putting national security in danger.  As far back as December 2020, the Senate Finance and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committees raised that concern.  “The records acquired by the Committees show consistent, significant and extensive financial connections among and between Hunter Biden, James Biden [Joe’s brother], Sara Biden [Joe’s sister-in law], Devon Archer [Hunter’s business partner], and Chinese nationals connected to the Communist regime,” the committees reported.  “These connections and the vast amount of money transferred among and between them … raise criminal financial, counterintelligence and extortion concerns.”

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman James Comer fears that Biden is “turning a blind eye to China” because “he was compromised by his son’s shady business dealings.”  “[W]e know that [Hunter is] a national security threat and we fear that he has compromised Joe Biden,” Comer said.

Making matters worse, the Biden administration has engaged in a pattern of covering up the trail of evidence pointing to Biden.  “The Biden Administration — including top officials at the Justice Department — lied to the American public and engaged in a cover-up that interfered with federal investigators and protected the Biden family, including President Biden himself,” according to the Ways and Means Committee.

Numerous IRS whistleblowers, including IRS Supervisory Agent for IRS-Criminal Investigations, Gary Shapley, have demonstrated that every effort which they made to investigate the Biden family was thwarted by political operatives in the government — especially the Justice Department.  The response to this testimony by whistleblowers has been to attack the IRS officials — and, of course, attack President Trump:  Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) actually seemed to legitimize President Biden’s effort to derail prosecution of Hunter, stating: “Now, can you imagine Donald Trump saying nothing about a witch hunt or not trying to quash the prosecution if it were his son being prosecuted?”

At least two articles of impeachment have already been introduced based on Biden’s corrupt overseas dealings:  H. Res. 57  and H. Res. 493.  New Speaker of the House Mike Johnson (R-LA) has stated that the impeachment inquiry has his “full and unwavering support,” and that the investigation is nearing an “inflection point.”  It would be utter malfeasance if House Republicans do not have the courage to take action this year to formally authorize the impeachment investigation.
