A Wonderful Thanksgiving

Exceptionally Grateful

My Dear Fellow Oath Keepers, Friends, and Family;

This has been…an extraordinary and most exceptional year for those of us who have long suffered (some quietly, and others not so quietly) the savage abuse of our Constitutional Republic and a way of life we’ve held as dear as the generations who’ve come before us…A most blessed way of life that we came very close to losing a year ago.

While pastors, priests and rabbis came from all across this nation to lay hands, and lift our new President up in prayer; witches, wiccans, and warlocks gathered to cast their spells in vain. For now, as sure as the day is long, we finally have a President who is who he says he is, and is in the process of doing what he told us he came here to do. And this, I tell you, is by the Grace of God.

“The annual average for pedophilia-related arrests in America is approximately 400. Since Donald Trump took office on January 20, 2017, there have been between 3,000 to 4,000 arrests at the time of this recording. In fact, over 1,500 were arrested in the first month alone. The national arrest rate for pedophiles and human traffickers has octupled in just the first 4 months of Donald Trump taking office.” Taken from here.

I am especially grateful for this man, and these events. And I am grateful for the family of my fellow Oath Keepers led by Stewart Rhodes who have done so much to embody the heart, soul, and very intention of our Founders since our own founding in 2009. May we continue to reach, teach, and inspire those around us to be as grateful as we for what we have, and strengthen us all for the battles ahead, and the fight to keep it for posterity sake. I encourage you all to read Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation at your tables today, before the grace. And may God continue to bless you and yours on this truly wonderful day. www.oathkeepers.org

Thanksgiving Proclamation, 3 October 1789

Thanksgiving Proclamation

[New York, 3 October 1789]

By the President of the United States of America. a Proclamation.

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor—and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.”

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be—That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks—for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation—for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war—for the great degree of tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed—for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted—for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions—to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually—to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed—to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord—To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among them and us—and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.

Go: Washington

    That is an inspiring message and hearing it or reading it gives clarity and purpose now, as it did then. I will be reading this at dinner, now and every year. Thanks for the new/old tradition! Happy Thanksgiving
