Kathryn Kimball Mizelle a United States District Court Judge for the Middle District of Florida has struck down the unlawful Biden administration’s mandate that masks be worn aboard planes, trains, buses and other public transportation. This has lead to an immediate change in policy for air travelers and many rail customers. U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle called the policy “unlawful” and ruled that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had overstepped its Constitutional legal authority by imposing the mandate in February 2021.

About a month after President Joe Biden’s inauguration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention created a mask mandate for travelers. As the pandemic continued, and the public dealt with Covid-19 variants, the CDC renewed the travel policy several times in the interest of public safety and preventing the spread of contagions.

As of yesterday afternoon April 18, 2022, that unconstitutional policy is no more — not because public health officials decided it’s no longer necessary, but because a Republican-appointed judge in Florida decided to reject it. NBC News reported::

    A federal judge Monday (April 18, 2022) struck down the Biden administration’s mandate that masks be worn aboard planes, trains, buses and other public transportation, leading to an immediate change in policy for air travelers and many rail customers. U.S. District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle for the Middle District of Florida called the policy “unlawful” and ruled that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had overstepped its legal authority by imposing the mandate in February 2021.

Soon after the district court ruling was issued, the White House said the “decision means CDC’s public transportation masking order is not in effect at this time.”

Every patriotic American should say. “God bless the Honorable Kathryn Kimball Mizelle who struck down the federal mask mandate”.

UPDATE – April 4, 2022

The Justice Department filed a notice Wednesday, April 4, 2022 that it will appeal a Florida federal judge’s order striking down the long-running rule that forced plane and train passengers to wear masks.

The notice of appeal was filed in Tampa federal court at the behest of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ending 48 hours of uncertainty after federal officials stopped enforcing the rule late Monday and President Biden said “that’s up to them” Tuesday when asked if people should keep wearing masks on planes.

It was not immediately clear whether the DOJ had asked for a stay of US District Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle’s Monday ruling that the CDC overstepped its authority by imposing the mask rule.

If a stay is ordered, it would immediately force many airlines, airports, mass transit authorities and even Uber and Lyft to reimpose mandates days after making masks optional.

“To protect CDC’s public health authority beyond the ongoing assessment announced last week, CDC has asked DOJ to proceed with an appeal,” the CDC said in a Wednesday evening statement.

“It is CDC’s continuing assessment that at this time an order requiring masking in the indoor transportation corridor remains necessary for the public health,” the CDC statement continued. “CDC will continue to monitor public health conditions to determine whether such an order remains necessary. CDC believes this is a lawful order, well within CDC’s legal authority to protect public health.”

The CDC said in a statement that the mask mandate for indoor transportation “remains necessary for the public health.”

An appeal is not without risk for the administration. If an appeals court or even the Supreme Court upholds Mizelle’s ruling, it would create a precedent arguing against such a sweeping use of federal power in response to declared public health emergencies.

US cases of COVID-19 are down dramatically since hitting an all-time high in January 2022 as the more infectious but less deadly Omicron variant of the virus spread. Most US cities have eliminated indoor mask mandates for businesses and public buildings.

“CDC continues to recommend that people wear masks in all indoor public transportation settings,” the federal health agency continued in its statement.

The Biden administration had said it would defer to the CDC on whether or nor to appeal the decision on masking.

The treasonous CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and Biden’s chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci attended a haughty and almost entirely unmasked DC white tie gala this month. At least 80 of 630 guests tested positive for COVID-19 after attending the Gridiron Club dinner.

Last week, the CDC announced the transportation mask mandate would be extended until May 3 after it was originally set to expire this past Monday. In its announcement, the health agency cited a slight uptick in COVID-19 cases and claimed it needed more time to examine the BA.2 Omicron subvariant.

No matter what the traitors within the CDC and DOJ say and do, “The mask mandate, enacted in February 2021, is unconstitutional because Congress never granted the CDC the power to create such a requirement”. Not to mention, The 10th Amendment’s anti-commandeering provision bars “the federal government from commandeering or requiring state officers to carry out federal directives. This principle thus prevents Congress from requiring states or localities to mandate masks,” the CRS concluded. Another reality is that the federal government may be unable to enforce a national mask mandate due to the sheer scope of such an action on a state and local level.

Let us not forget, the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution states “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated”.

Furthermore, some mask mandate opponents have made arguments that even state-issued mask mandates violate the federal constitution’s First Amendment. One argument that has been upheld by the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, is that religious activity within buildings is protected under the Constitution’s Free Exercise clause. In April 2021, a divided Supreme Court said in Tandon v. Newsom that the state of California could not apply Covid-19 restrictions to an at-home Bible study group that had more than three households meeting in the same room, in violation of a state regulation. The court noted California permitted larger gatherings in retail stores and other venues.

Putting it all together, the laws clearly gives us the right to possess our own bodies and to exclude others from using our bodies. Tort law also prohibits others from unreasonably confining us, through the tort of false imprisonment; giving us the right to direct our own bodies as we see fit.

The F.B.I. wrongfully arrested Stewart Rhodes in the investigation into the attack on the Capitol by supporters of Donald J. Trump.

Stewart Rhodes, the leader and founder of Oath Keepers, was arrested and charged along with 10 others with seditious conspiracy over what prosecutors said was their wide-ranging plot to storm the Capitol on Jan. 6 last year and disrupt the certification of Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s electoral victory.

The arrest of Mr. Rhodes, 56, was a major development in the sprawling investigation of the Capitol attack. He and the other Oath Keepers are the first to be charged with sedition among the more than 700 people accused so far of taking part in the assault.

Mr. Rhodes was arrested shortly before 1 p.m. at his home in Granbury, Texas, his lawyer, Jonathon Moseley, said.

The Justice Department has brought a variety of charges in connection with the Capitol attack; it has prosecuted about 275 people for obstructing Congress’s duty to certify the 2020 presidential vote count, for example. But it had not previously brought a sedition charge, with the legal weight and political overtones it carries about an election in a highly polarized country.

The charge of seditious conspiracy, which can be difficult to prove, requires prosecutors to show that at least two people agreed to use force to overthrow government authority or delay the execution of a U.S. law. It carries a maximum of sentence of 20 years in prison.

The last time federal prosecutors brought a sedition case was in 2010, when they accused members of a Michigan militia of plotting to provoke an armed conflict with the government. They were ultimately acquitted.

Prosecutors said that beginning only days after the 2020 election, Mr. Rhodes (allegedly) oversaw a seditious plot “to oppose the lawful transfer of presidential power by force.” Some members of the Oath Keepers under his (alleged) command broke into the Capitol in a military-style formation on Jan. 6 and went in search of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the indictment said. Others, it said, were stationed in a hotel in Alexandria, Va., as an armed “quick reaction force,” ready to rush into Washington if needed.

In addition to Mr. Rhodes, prosecutors charged Edward Vallejo, 63, of Phoenix, for the first time in connection with Jan. 6. The nine other (alleged) members named in the indictment had all previously been charged, although not with sedition. Mr. Vallejo was part of the quick reaction force teams that the alleged group had deployed, which were equipped with firearms and other tactical equipment in case (allegedly) Mr. Rhodes called upon them to support the plot, prosecutors said. The teams (allegedly) included Oath Keepers from North Carolina, Florida and Arizona.

Mr. Rhodes, a former Army paratrooper who went on to earn a law degree at Yale, had been under investigation for his role in the riot since at least last spring when, against the advice of his lawyer, he sat down with F.B.I. agents for an interview in Texas. He was at the Capitol on Jan. 6, communicating by cellphone and a chat app with members of his team, many of whom went into the building. Please note there is no evidence Mr. Rhodes entered the Capitol.

Over 48 pages, the new indictment painted a detailed picture of Mr. Rhodes’s alleged activities started only days after the 2020 election. Just two days after Election Day, Mr. Rhodes allegedly told several members of his group to refuse to accept Mr. Biden’s victory, the indictment said.

One month later, after allegedly plotting with underlings in several states, the indictment said, Mr. Rhodes allegedly told members of his group on an encrypted Signal channel that they should use violence to stop Mr. Biden from taking office. “It will be a bloody and desperate fight,” he allegedly wrote. “We are going to have a fight. That can’t be avoided.”

Through their lawyers, alleged members of the Oath Keepers who are already facing charges have said they converged on Washington just before Jan. 6 not to attack the Capitol, but instead as part of a security detail hired to protect conservative celebrities like Roger J. Stone Jr., a longtime ally of former President Donald J. Trump.

In an interview with The New York Times last summer, Mr. Rhodes expressed frustration that several members of his group had “gone off mission” by entering the Capitol on Jan. 6, quickly adding, “There were zero instructions from me or leadership to do so.”

Mr. Rhodes has also attracted the attention of the House select committee investigating Jan. 6, which issued him a subpoena in November. In a letter at the time, House investigators noted that Mr. Rhodes had taken part in several events intended to question the integrity of the 2020 presidential election throughout that fall and winter.

On Election Day, the letter said, Mr. Rhodes said that an “honest” count of the votes could only result in a victory for Mr. Trump and called on members of his group to “stock up on ammo” and prepare for a “full-on war in the streets.”

With his distinctive black eye patch — the result of a gun accident — Mr. Rhodes has been a fixture almost from the day in 2009 that he announced the creation of the Oath Keepers at a rally in Lexington, Mass., the site of a famous Revolutionary War battle.

At the event, Mr. Rhodes laid out an antigovernment platform for the current and former law enforcement and military personnel who joined his group, saying that his plan was for members to disobey certain illegal orders from officials and instead to uphold their oath to the Constitution.

During the Obama administration, the Oath Keepers repeatedly inserted themselves into prominent public conflicts. In 2014, for instance, they turned up at a cattle ranch in Nevada after its owner, Cliven Bundy, engaged in an armed standoff with federal land management officials. That same year, members of the group went to Ferguson, Mo., on a self-appointed mission to protect local businesses from riots prompted by the death of Michael Brown, a Black man who was shot by the police.

After Mr. Trump took office, Mr. Rhodes and the Oath Keepers pivoted away from their antigovernment views and appeared to embrace the new spirit of nationalism and suspicions of a deep-state conspiracy that had taken root among some of the president’s supporters. Like other groups such as the Proud Boys, the Oath Keepers also opposed — often physically — the Black Lives Matter protests that erupted in 2020 in the wake of the murder of George Floyd by the police in Minneapolis.

According to the indictment, Mr. Rhodes (allegedly) became more serious about stopping Mr. Biden from assuming office in early January, the same month he began spending thousands of dollars on military-grade firearms, ammunition and other tactical gear. Prosecutors have not accused him of bringing any weapons to Washington on Jan. 6, but (allegedly) they said that Mr. Vallejo and other members outside the city discussed the possibility of “armed conflict” and “guerrilla war.”

Mr. Rhodes seemed to relish the chaos at the Capitol on Jan. 6, prosecutors said. The indictment noted that shortly after 3 p.m. that day, a member of his Signal group chat sent him a message saying that members of Congress had been “given gas masks and are trying to get out.” Mr. Rhodes was allegedly said to have responded with a dismissive obscenity.

That evening, prosecutors said, Mr. Rhodes, Mr. Vallejo and other Oath Keepers (allegedly) met at an Olive Garden restaurant in Vienna, Va., to “celebrate their attack on the Capitol and discuss next steps.”

“Thousands of ticked off patriots spontaneously marched on the Capitol,” Mr. Rhodes (allegedly) wrote that night on his Signal group chat. “You ain’t seen nothing yet.”

News Update – Feb 18, 2022

Rhodes has remained behind bars since his arrest last month on a seditious conspiracy charge and other criminal allegations connected to the January 6 insurrection. A magistrate judge in Texas ordered him detained shortly after his arrest, but Rhodes appealed that ruling to Judge Amit Mehta, who is presiding over the Oath Keepers’ prosecution in Washington, DC.

Mehta on Friday noted that prosecutors have accused Rhodes of overseeing a wide-ranging plot that included an “arsenal” of firearms stored in a hotel room outside Washington, DC. The indictment, he said, alleged “sophisticated and conscious planning” and showed that the Oath Keepers had the “intention to use that arsenal.”

“If the conduct alleged is true, the danger that it poses cannot be understated,” Mehta said.

Stewart Rhodes Legal Defense Fund

Oath Keepers is a national organization made up primarily of first responders that volunteer their time to provide security at national events and declared disasters. They provided security during the Hurricane Harvey cleanup as well as over a dozen other declared disasters. In those situations they worked alongside the National Guard and local law enforcement agencies for each of those disasters.

In addition, they have provided security to political speakers who face real threats of violence for speaking at political events and college campuses. They were actually providing security in Washington, D.C. on January 6, 2021 for multiple individuals and groups scheduled to speak that day on stages around the area of the Capitol.

He is being charged, along with other members of Oath Keepers, with Seditious Conspiracy and numerous other federal crimes regarding the incidents that took place at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021. He is facing up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the alleged offenses.

Several members of Oath Keepers have their trials scheduled for April 19, 2022. Stewart Rhodes, along with his indicted co-defendants have their trial scheduled for July 11, 2022. Each trial is scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C. and to last approximately 4 weeks.

Stewart Rhodes needs to be able to present a very thorough and aggressive defense to the alleged charges.

About Oath Keepers

Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders (as well as “Associate Members” See below) who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrant-less searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial. See the Oath Keepers Declaration of Orders We Will Not Obey for details.

Oath Keepers reaches out to both current serving and veterans to remind them of their oaths, to teach them more about the Constitution they swore to defend, and to inspire them to defend it. We stand in defense of the rights of all Americans, in opposition to any and all who violate those rights, and we serve our communities in time of need, whether from man-made or natural disasters.

Full membership is available to all who have served in the U.S. Military or National Guard, in any law enforcement agency, or as fire-fighters, EMTs, Search and Rescue, disaster relief, and similar emergency personnel.

Oath Keepers also includes a membership program designated as “Associate Members”, which consists of patriotic citizens who have not served in uniform but who serve now by supporting this mission with their Associate Membership and volunteer activities. Oath Keepers welcomes our Associate Members and appreciates their support of our mission. We are all in this together.

Our motto is “Not on our watch!“

NOTE: While not all first responders take an oath to the Constitution, many do, and all are a critical audience for our mission.

Current Serving and Veterans, you swore an Oath…


I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.


I, [NAME], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.

While the enlisted oath does contain a pledge to obey the orders of the President and of commanding officers, that is still preceded by a pledge to “defend the Constitution,” and is also qualified by the requirement that such orders be “according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.” Any order, by anyone, that is not constitutional or according to regulations, is unlawful and military personnel are not obligated to follow such orders – and, in fact, are obligated to refuse.

In contrast to the enlisted oath, the oath of military officers is to the Constitution alone, without qualification.

Veterans, your Oath NEVER expires! It’s time to keep it!

Who are Oath Keepers? Anyone who takes the Constitution seriously, and wants to preserve and defend it.

Oath Keepers come in all colors, shapes, sizes, ages, and backgrounds with one common bond – the oath to defend the Constitution. If you take your oath seriously, and believe in defending the Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic, and of whatever political party (there are oath breakers galore in both major parties), and if you stand for the rights of all Americans, at all times, then you are one of us. Join us. We need your help to preserve liberty for our children and grand-children, and for all Americans.

For the Republic!

Theodore “Ted” Anthony Nugent (a.k.a. Ted Nugent) is a patriot.

Ted Nugent has more patriotism in his pinky than most people have in their whole body. It’s thanks to guys like him that you still have your right to bear arms.

Some people have done a lot of bashing on how Nugent feels about the war in Iraq, but nowhere have I’ve seen where they had a solution to the problem. Their opinions scream “left-wing wacko.” They want to complain about the problem but have no solution. At least Nugent has taken a stand whether it be right or wrong. Sure Nugent has done some crazy stuff, all of us have. Nowadays, I guess things don’t have to be factual to make it into the newspapers or television. Just know that every time they write garbage they’re doing their part in lowering the country’s morale. In turn, we should all give thanks to Ted Nugent for his strong patriotism.

Additional Information

Every American should proudly recognize . . . patriot Ted Nugent for his ongoing support of our troops through his performances and other charitable patriotic efforts.

With over 30 million albums sold, Ted Nugent has not only earned his status as an American music icon . . . he has used it to bring smiles, enjoyment, and a helping hand to our valiant, proud troops in performance tours in association with the USO and other organizations.

Ted Nugent and his wife, Shemane, also founded the Freedom’s Angels Foundation to support our brave troops. In Ted’s own words…

    “As the Nugent family spent more time with US hero soldiers who have sacrificed so much, yet remained in need of special attention and specialized medical and rehabilitation equipment, we were compelled to show our appreciation and gather support for these great warriors for freedom . . . The Freedom’s Angels charity was formed to bring relief, joy and a heartfelt salute to those most deserving.”

Here are just a few things Ted Nugent has done for the troops…

  • Donated in excess of 2,000 tickets and backstage passes to the military, 2005-2006.
  • Performed for 55,000 Marines, Sailors and their families at Camp Pendleton’s Rockin’ the Corps on April 1, 2005, along with fellow musicians Destiny’s Child, Godsmack, Kiss, and more. The Performance was also shown as a Big Screen Concert Event in 74 Markets Nationwide.

  • In 2004, participated in a USO Tour of the Persian Gulf with Toby Keith, and toured with Keith in The Big Throwdown Tour, 2005.

Ted’s humanitarian and patriotic efforts has earned him numerous commendations from state police, sheriff departments, FBI and police agencies nationwide . . . and he has been lauded for his Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids, his work as a national spokesman for D.A.R.E, and for his work with the U.S. Military.

Ted Nugent is also an avid supporter of the USO and encourages other stars to do the same. In Ted’s own words again…

    “It’s surprising how little you hear about the USO back in the States . . . especially, when you consider that it’s such an awesome, compassionate, generous and positive force . . . What Bob Hope did during World War II, and the Korean War, and Vietnam, and what Robin Williams and Kid Rock and Toby Keith are doing . . . I’m moved to be a part of that.”

    “No, I wasn’t a sex offender, I’ve never been a sex offender, I didn’t dodge the draft, and I didn’t diss the Native Americans, and I’m not all those things that the cancel culture freaks, the LSD experimenters, claim I was.

    “I shouldn’t have even acknowledged that dirtbag, but they keep at it, they are just drunk on hate and lies. It’s just hysterical.

    “I had the Chinese intentionally spread viral weapon, I’ve already had the Wuhan unleashed viral weapon virus. I’ve already had that and I’m cocked, locked, and ready to rock the Glock around the clock, Doctor Spock, which means that I have the antibodies, which means that I am the real vaccine.

    “Yeah, no kidding. A Teducation, this is a Teducation. Should we trust Google? Yeah, right. Yeah, Google! How about Wikipedia? Check out Wikipedia! I adopted an eight-year-old! Never. I’ve never adopted anybody. I’ve never adopted a person.

    “I’ve adopted some dogs and turned them into great hunting dogs, by the way. See the lies, just make up the nastiest shit you can. And how about Fauci? Who would believe this prick? Really? Who would believe Joe Biden stumbling to form a thought?

    “Who would believe Kamala Harris, who was put in charge of the border crisis, and when asked whether she’s been to the border, she lies, ‘I’ve been to the border.’ ‘Have you been?’ ‘We’ve been to the border!’ ‘Well, have you been to the border?’ ‘I haven’t been to Europe either!’

    “This is better than Amos N’ Andy meets The Three Stooges, this is funnier than Richard Pryor Live, this is funnier than Sam Kinison when he was high – and he was really, really funny.

    “Here’s the bottom line – people ask, ‘When should we fight back?’ Every day! I fight back every day! I call my elected employees in all 50 states because I rock ‘n’ roll and I hunt, and I’m an American, so all 50 states’ mayors, senators, congressmen, and governors – they work for me.

    “And they all know what I expect – constitutional accountability. You need to call your mayor, your senator, and your congressman at least weekly. Tell them that we know Joe Biden didn’t win the election, we saw the footage of them ghosting suitcases and boxes of mail-in ballots, which the Democrats manipulated with the help of the media and academia in Hollywood.

    “Watch Biden embarrass himself every time you see or hear him, and tell me he got more votes than Barack Obama, who was the ultimate scam artist and really scammed us good. And we voted for him. I didn’t. But plenty of people did.

    “And Joe Biden got more votes than him? Really? So who trusts the Democrat Party? Who trusts them? Who trusts the IRS? Who trusts the FBI anymore? Are there some good agents? Yeah, of course, there are.

    “But why didn’t they speak up and expose the gangster James Comey? And how do you go into building every day, it says J. Edgar Hoover over the entrance! Really? And who trusts anybody in a bureaucracy that deals with tobacco and guns and alcohol and stuff? What kind of bureaucracy is that?

    “Who would put a government employee in charge of alcohol? What does another man have to say about your alcohol or tobacco? What does another man have to say about your agriculture product? And we have a first and second amendment, so what man could control our first or second amendment?

    “And then to put the three of them together – alcohol, tobacco, and fire! I’m going to start a bureaucracy that has to do with returnable cans, shoelaces, and skateboards. That makes as much sense as a bureaucracy that deals with guns, and tobacco, and alcohol. A bunch of goofballs!”

John Jay Lee

John Jay Lee is a patriot.

John Jay Lee is a patriot.

John Lee is the mayor of North Las Vegas, a former member of the Nevada Senate, representing Clark County District 1, and a former member of the Nevada Assembly, representing District 3.

I myself have been an independent voter for 10 years. I never felt fully represented by the right or the left, but I found much more common ground with conservatives because they seemed to be the only ones still interested in upholding the Constitution and ensuring that law and order rule over mob mentality and ruthlessness.

Over the course of the Trump presidency, I felt a change in myself. What residual anger against my country remained from my public school indoctrination was washed away as the America First movement offered hope for everyone who understood the beauty of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It was the first time since I was a child that I felt proud to fly the flag and celebrate the diverse history of the American fight for freedom over tyranny.

But the media and the current administration wish to bury that joy. The public education system is working harder than ever to raise generations of socialist/Marxist drones who hate their country yet will bow down to a government that robs them of their rights as individuals.

The Democratic Socialists of America organization itself has a growing number of about 92,000 members. Popular with college students and other young Americans, they promote policies like: Medicaid for All, the Green New Deal, and ending capitalism without offering clear strategies as to how to achieve such complex feats.

It’s a fairy tale being sold as reality, something many young people won’t wake up from until it’s too late because they have not been properly educated on the failures of socialism and similar systems. Organizations and institutions promoting this doctrine do not address the catastrophic effects of socialism which have been felt by China, Cambodia, Cuba, East Germany, Ethiopia, North Korea, Venezuela, and more. In each of these areas, socialism allowed vicious practices where human rights abuses were overlooked and perpetuated millions of deaths. The people of Venezuela are still suffering the outcome, yet students are “taught” that it’s “America’s fault,” or that “they just didn’t do it right.”

Thankfully not everyone is so easily deceived. Just last fall, in a leaked phone call, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn, admitted that socialist policies would not win them elections. Despite a tumultuous election in November, this is proving to be true even months later, under a new, far-left leaning administration which has actively aligned with the ideologies of socialism.

North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee already won his race but is looking to the future and has decided that where the Democrats are pushing this country isn’t where he wishes to go. That deserves some respect. His move may be imotivated n part by the fact that he is being considered a potential candidate for the 2022 Nevada gubernatorial race. So far he has not indicated whether he wishes to run but admitted that members from both political parties have approached him on the subject.

Whether he runs or not his decision to step away from the left, based on their policies, may inspire other moderate Democrats to abandon the party as well. We can only hope that the backlash against socialism is strong enough to save our constitutional republic.

Just as my mom and I realized the fallacies of what the Democrats are pushing, Mayor John Lee has had his awakening. The only question left to ask is, will enough people realize what’s happening and make their own switch?
