Special Report from Sister Ciara
At 14 minutes past midnight on 30 July 1945, the greatest single loss of life at sea in the history of the United States Navy occurred when the USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by the Imperial Japanese Navy submarine I-58, sinking in 12 minutes.
Of 1,196 crewmen aboard, approximately 300 went down with the ship. The remaining 900 faced exposure, dehydration, saltwater poisoning, and shark attacks while floating with few lifeboats and almost no food or water. The US Navy learned of the sinking when survivors were spotted four days later by the crew of a PV-1 Ventura on routine patrol. Only 317 survived.
Among those who perished was Lt. Thomas Michael Conway, a Catholic priest from Buffalo, New York, who for three nights swam to the aid of his shipmates, reassuring the increasingly dehydrated and delirious men with prayers until he himself expired, the last Catholic chaplain to die in World War II.
This past week, however, the last measure of earthly devotion Lt. Conway had towards those who needed him most in their greatest hour of need was deemed by the Obama administration as unworthy when the US Navy refused to award this true hero the Navy Cross.
Even worse, the reason for the Obama administration refusing to award the Navy Cross to Lt. Conway wasn’t because his acts of bravery and devotion weren’t well documented, but rather because the hundreds of enlisted men who survived, and testified of his heroism, were precluded from making award recommendations…in other words, the US Navy said they would only accept recommendations of his heroic acts if made by those of superior rank, all of whom had died.
In this tragic story about Lt. Conway, though, lies the essence of the American character of the last century…and as it still exists today… “We Have Been Captured… We Are Parented, Not Represented”.
From a unique nation ruled by its own citizens when it threw off the yoke of tyranny imposed upon it by the British in the late 1700’s, to what it has become today, proves true the words of Benjamin Franklin when asked about the kind of country the United States had become…“What have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?” Franklin replied, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”
With the “Imperial Presidency” now ruling America for the sole benefit of the elite classes, and with so many laws the United States government itself is unable to tell how many there are [ US Justice Department official Ronald Gainer “You will have died and been resurrected three times and still not have an answer to this question.”], it would be easy for anyone to say that the Republic is now dead, and will never be again.
They would be wrong, however, to say so because of the simple fact that the Republic is NOT the rulers of America, the people are! And unless you kill all of the people, the Republic is as alive now as it ever has been.
Even better, by every metric one can use to measure by, the Republic is not only still alive, but it is actually growing at a greater pace and level than at anytime since the United States was first founded!
And therein lays the hope, and the danger. Because as the Republic grows in strength, those elite rulers opposed to it (by whatever name you call them) institute new police state laws and crackdowns to stop it…and ALWAYS fail.
Remember…whenever you see a nation where the police begin to resemble the military, where the laws have become so ridiculous and onerous that every citizen is now a criminal, where ordinary life is lived in a constant state of fear, where everyone is spying on everyone else…all of these, and more, show one thing and one thing only…the rulers are in dire fear of the ruled, not the other way around.
In what you could call the “it’s always darkest before the dawn” scenario, history has long shown that when a government begins to crackdown on its own people, the closer to freedom these people really are!
And unlike nearly every other nation in the world, the American people are ALWAYS the closest to throwing off the yoke of oppression because their Republic has NEVER DIED because it lives within each and every single one of them!
So the only “weapon” the elites have left to counter the American people ready to restore their Republic is to lie and deceive them….IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE!
Lie to them about everything having to do with how the world really works, how economies work, how debt strangles the future of a country…and too many other things to write in just one sitting.
Deceive them into believing their past is not real, their wars are just, the vast amount of wealth going to the elites is justified, and on, and on, and on.
But most of all…DESTROY their will to fight by making them believe the falsehood that they are powerless!
As all of you have noticed too, the charade of electing another American President (i.e. Imperial Ruler) is already beginning…in fact it never seems to end! But do you ever ask yourself why?
The reason for this “game” is simple…if one can keep a people divided they can conquer them. In other words, if these elites can keep the American people arguing over guns, abortion, wages, you name it, they remain free to pillage and loot to their hearts content.
And they do this all while instituting a child prison system (known as schools) intended to indoctrinate, not educate.
That’s OK though, because as history has always shown, when the education system fails, the free press picks up the slack….unless….
And this is the point I’m trying to make today…without a free press, a press that educates, that puts everything into context, and most of all tells the truth, those seeking to restore the Republic will fail!
Even worse, with the CIA funded Facebook now about to destroy every independent news website in America, and with just 6 corporations controlling 90% of the media in the entire United States, those able and willing to protect and defend the Republic could very well awaken one day to find no true news or information at all!
Unlike Facebook, or the mainstream news corporations, we, and others like us, are not able to operate at a loss…we need actual funds to keep operating.
And the ONLY way we can survive is by your generous help…which we need TODAY!
Freedom does indeed have a cost…especially for those of us on the front lines so you don’t have to be….after all, someone has to fight against this evil…will you join us too?
Please help us all you can.
