Just a few months ago, the world watched in horror as Afghanistan was taken over by terrorists. Joe Biden had been in office for six months, and he had already failed miserably on the world stage. The United States basically gave up. Everyone was watching as our weakness was portrayed to the world. Vladimir Putin was also watching.

As the Taliban literally walked into Kabul and everyone else fled, Vladimir Putin was watching. He saw how botched the U.S. retreat was, and he saw how easy it was to invade a sovereign nation without any repercussions. So, he decided that now was the perfect time to carry out his dream plan.

To truly understand what’s going on in the Russian invasion you have to understand the mindset of Vladimir Putin. He’s a former KGB agent who has adamantly expressed his dream to bring Russia back to its height of global power during its Soviet Union days. No, that’s not a conspiracy theory, he has expressed that publicly numerous times. Putin is going to claim that he’s invading Ukraine because he feels “threatened” by them wanting to join NATO, but we all know that’s not the real reason. He would have invaded without reason at all as the NATO “threat” is just a good excuse to throw out there in an attempt to cover up his war crimes. What everyone has to understand is that it doesn’t stop in Ukraine. In fact, Ukraine is just the start. Now that Putin has a taste of more global power and more control in Europe, he won’t stop. There are a lot of countries bordering Russia that he can easily invade and take over next. That’s why it’s so pivotal that we can’t show weakness and put a stop to this.

At the end of the day, this all could have been avoided and it was all predicted. Donald Trump predicted this type of invasion if weakness was shown and made it clear to Putin that an invasion of Ukraine would not happen under his administration. In a New York Post article published this week, they reported that Trump warned Putin, "“If you move against Ukraine while I’m president, I will hit Moscow.”…Putin reportedly scoffed, “No way,” leading Trump to say, “All those beautiful golden turrets will be blown up.”…Trump reportedly told Xi that any military move against Taiwan would be met with an attack on Beijing. Xi, like Putin, is said to have been stunned.”. It’s not a coincidence that Putin didn’t make a move in the 4 years Trump was in office but he invades Ukraine with Biden in office for just a little over a year. At the end of the day, it’s not a partisan talking point, it’s the truth: Donald Trump showed strength and now Joe Biden is showing weakness. Trump was right, again. Obama was right as well. As you may or may not remember, he infamously said privately while Biden was considering a run for President, “Never underestimate Joe’s ability to f**k things up!”. Robert Gates was right too. He was the Secretary of Defense under the Obama/Biden administration and warned that Joe Biden had “gotten a lot wrong” in the past when it comes to foreign policy.

As Russian troops are attempting to take over the sovereign nation of Ukraine city by city, the world is watching again. The world is watching The United States fail on foreign policy promises again. And this time, Xi Jinping is watching. He’s watching how easy it is to invade an independent nation without being stopped. If this pattern continues, China will attempt to invade Taiwan next, and from Xi Jinping’s point of view, now is the best time. The Beijing Olympics are over and nothing is holding them back. The morning after Russia invaded Ukraine, Taiwan reported that Chinese aircraft had invaded their airspace and were flying over their country. China is making moves, and if we don’t stand up, they will try to invade Taiwan.

*Exclusive op-ed published through The Post Millennial:

"Freedom is a fragile thing and it's never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by way of inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people." Ronald Reagan said those famous words in his First Inaugural Address as Governor of California in 1967. He's exactly right. Freedom is a gift from God.

Yes, it's a human right, but it's also something that can be taken away by tyrannical overreach. Freedom is always at risk of being just one generation away from total extinction. That's why it's so fundamentally important for every generation to understand the impact they have on the future of this great experiment called America. With our everyday freedoms being stripped away, our freedom is less than one generation away from extinction. If the Democrats have their way, it'll be gone before we know it.

The Supreme Court ruled that Joe Biden's vaccine mandate for private companies across the country was unconstitutional and struck it down in a 6-3 vote. It should have been a simple 9-0 decision in favor of medical freedom, but that's another debate for another time. If the highest court in the land didn't step in, millions and millions of Americans across the country would have been laid off unconstitutionally because of their personal medical choice.

Now let's pause and take a breath. This is not a vaccine rant. Let me be clear, I'm pro-vaccines. I think vaccines are great things and have protected us for years. But I'm also pro-medical freedom and don't think that the government or anybody for that matter should mandate any medicine for you to take against your will. If you want to get vaccinated, you should go get vaccinated. If you don't, you shouldn't. I think the Trump administration made historic breakthroughs with Operation Warp Speed and the development of vaccines and therapeutics. And, the government's partnership with private businesses that made that possible was incredible and should be highly praised. That doesn't give government the right to force Americans to get a vaccine against their will.

Right now in America, we are seeing brazen violations of our freedoms and fundamental rights before our very eyes. And it's not just forced jabs.

Lockdowns, mask mandates, and everything else Fauci and the CDC have dictated via "guidance and regulations" over the past two years have slowly but surely blurred the fine line between freedom and government overreach.

COVID was the perfect opportunity for the Democrats and power-hungry elites to strip you of our freedoms. The Democratic Party's campaign slogan should be "never let a crisis go to waste," and they have monopolized COVID to impose every restriction they can to get Americans comfortable with a lack of freedom. They justified it with "science." They told us that it was to "help the greater good" and we were "selfish" if we dared question the efficacy of masks or vaccines. Crystal Eastman once said, "A good deal of tyranny goes by the name of protection."

But watching our freedoms fade away right before our eyes is not a fate we have to accept. I believe that my generation is full of strong and vocal patriots who are ready to fight for this country. If we stand up and push back against this Communist take over of America, my generation may be blessed enough to grow old in a democracy, just like generations before us. With Joe Biden in control of the White House, Nancy Pelosi leading the House of Representatives, and Chuck Schumer presiding over the Senate, we've seen our freedoms fade over the past year.

We've seen our freedoms come close to extinction, but that's not the fate we have to accept. A lot of Americans will get to vote for the first time this November in the midterm election, and when they walk into that ballot box, they'll have a choice: freedom or tyranny. I have faith that my generation will make the right choice, our great nation will be set back on the right course, and the great experiment called America will continue on into the future.

A year ago today, was January 6, 2021. The Liberal Media and Radical Left are using today to flood the mainstream media airwaves and your social media feeds with quotes and tweets comparing the actions committed a year ago today to those done in Pearl Harbor or in New York on 9/11. No comparison could be further from the truth. What happened at the United States Capitol on January 6th was wrong. It should not have happened. Crimes were committed, and the people who committed those crimes should be punished (not as political prisoners but as people accused of the crimes they committed).

The worst part of January 6th was not the day itself, it was how the media and Democratic party took advantage of it and have capitalized off of it for the past year. The Vice President of the United States of America just spoke in the U.S. Capitol to mark the year anniversary of the riots and said that January 6th is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor and 9/11. As I said, crimes were committed on January 6th. The people who committed those crimes should be punished. But January 6th was no Pearl Harbor. January 6th was no 9/11. January 6th was not a terrorist attack on our nation.

Today, after a year of watching the media spin what happened on that day in Washington and twist it to fit their narrative and deceive the American people, I'm here to set the record straight.

Here are the Top 3 Media Mistruths about January 6th:

1. It was an "Insurrection"...but Insurrection Charges were never filled

For the past year, you've heard every talking head on TV make the date "Jan 6." synonymous with the phrase "Insurrection Day", but according to authorities, that's not true.

You see, out of the 725 people who have been charged with crimes related to the riot at the Capitol on January 6th, none of them have been charged with insurrection. Not a single one. The corrupt FBI has spent every resource available over the past year to charge everyone within a 200 mile radius of Washington D.C. that day with something so they can say "justice was served", but not a single person has actually been charged with insurrection.

Instead, charges have been filled for crimes like assault or trespassing, but to charge someone with insurrection, you need a more hardcore legal case to back it up. According to federal code, to charge someone of insurrection, it must be proven that they "incited, set foot on, assisted, or engaged in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States", and it can be punished by imprisonment for up to 10 years.

The Daily News reports that "Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert asked Attorney General Merrick Garland in a hearing, “Has any defendant involved in the January 6 events been charged with insurrection?” Garland responded, “I don’t believe so.”.

So much for "Insurrection Day"!

2. No firearms are believed to have been carried inside the Capitol

Newsmax reported today that of the 725 people charged with crimes related to January, around 640 of them have been "charged with entering a restricted area with a dangerous or deadly weapon". Several people had guns on the grounds of the Capitol that day, and they are being charged, as they should, for having that firearm in a restricted area. But there's a catch. If you watched the media for the past year, you would have thought that these people busted through the windows of the Capitol waving around machine guns. That's not true.

Out of all of the people who broke in to the Capitol, Newsmax reports that "no firearms are believed to have been carried inside the building by protesters". Wow. Isn't that something?

It appears that this "armed insurrection" wasn't "armed" just as much as it wasn't an "insurrection" at all.

3. The Capitol "Insurrection" didn't fully consist of "Trump Supporters"

For the past year, the Radical Left and Mainstream Media have peddled the biggest lie imaginable about January 6th, and in watching the coverage the day of and in the days following, it's that lie that hurt the most. The media wants you to believe that the people who broke into the Capitol that day are the majority of the Republican party. Spoiler alert - they're not. I know true, honest, and hard-working Republicans who supported Donald Trump and believed that their voices were not heard and that the election was stolen from them. Yes, they were in Washington D.C. that day. Yes, thousands and thousands of them filled the lawn outside The White House to hear Donald J. Trump speak. But no, those are not the same people who broke in and ransacked the Capitol on January 6th.

I'm not saying that every person in that building that day was a paid actor, member of Antifa, or federal agent - because they weren't - but I am saying that the majority of the people in that building do not accurately portray the same Republicans the media is attempting to portray them as. You saw the same images I did. I've been around Trump supporters for the past 4 years at rallies and events across the country. Those "Trump Supporters" were not the true Trump Supporters that I know. They weren't the truck drivers or dairy farmers who drove hundreds of miles to stand in lines for hours in the heat just to hear a President with a plan to "Make America Great Again" speak. They weren't the single moms with three kids and a full-time job who took a day off work just so she could bring her children to hear a man with a mission to give them a better future in the best country on the planet. Those are just a few of the true Trump Supporters I've met over the past 4 years, but you won't hear about them because they don't fit the media's mold of a true "Trump-Supporting Insurrectionist".

Just today, an article was published saying that "Images of Jan. 6 riots could be harmful to kids, a psychologist warns". Yes - that is an actual headline. Ok, so if the images of January 6th are "harmful" to America's youth, then I guess we can't show them images of Americans being stranded overseas in terrorist-controlled Afghanistan, because that could definitely be harmful.

The media doesn't want to take the time to cover and talk about what REALLY happened on January 6th. They don't want to take the time to talk about the real people that were there who traveled from all across the country to have their voices heard. They don't wanna talk about the majority of the people there that day that never even made it off the lawn of The White House before the chaos ensued at the Capitol. They don't wanna talk about that because it doesn't fit their narrative. They can't spin that in to fear to win the midterms.

I said it at the beginning and I want to say it again to make sure I'm crystal clear. January 6th was a bad day. Crimes were committed on January 6th. The people who committed those crimes should be punished. But January 6th was no Pearl Harbor. January 6th was no 9/11. January 6th was not a terrorist attack on our nation.

Every year they're gonna try to do the same thing. They will treat today as a hallowed holiday and score a few extra political points to divert from the current crisis. Americans need to remember this - United we stand, Divided we fall. Today is meant to be a distraction to make us fall. Let's not fall.


Nancy Pelosi’s January 6th UNSELECT Committee definitely does not want you to read this article or share it with all of your friends and fellow Patriots, so *definitely* don’t do that!
