Last Ounce of Courage: A Movie For Patriots

  I just finished watching an incredible movie.  A few months ago I saw previews of a movie called “Last Ounce of Courage” and Last Ounce of Courage Covermentioned to my wife that I would like to see it.  She found it at Amazon.com and ordered it.  This movie had been sitting in a box with some others for quite some time and she pulled them out today and we decided to sit down and watch it tonight.

The story is about a Vietnam veteran who lost a son in Iraq or Afghanistan, not really sure which, but where isn’t important.  The story is what is important.  Bob Revere is a mayor of small town America who watched his son go off to war and saw him return in a casket.  The story line revolves around Christmas but the underlying reality of today’s America is what matters.

Bob Revere is a Medal of Honor recipient from Vietnam who takes a stand for freedom when the ACLU, and the media naturally, threatens his town with lawsuits and other strong-arm tactics over acknowledging that Christmas is celebrated as the birtBob Revereh of Jesus Christ.  Revere embodies the spirit of America and what we are losing because We the People have allowed ourselves to be intimidated into acquiescing to the views of a very small minority of people who are agnostic, pagan, and/or just downright evil.

Anyone that knows me can tell you that I am about as tough and hard-nosed as anyone can be but I found myself teary eyed through the entire movie.   It made me swell with pride and ache with sadness and concern at the same time.  This movie took me back 42 years to my time in the military.  It took me back to a time when friends died on distant battlefields in third world hell holes that no one remembers or cares about today.

I think of friends who died in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Central America, and South America; in unknown and unacknowledged counter-insurgency operations all around the globe.  Many died in places no one ever knew about because the operations were so highly classified that company and group commanders didn’t know where they were or what they were doing.

It made me think of the sacrifices made by the 1.3 million who have died since the beginning of our Republic and the countless millions who have suffered crippling injuries, both physical and mental, to preserve the ideals founded in 1776 and written into the Declaration of Independence; and later, in 1791, written into The Constitution of the United States of America.  It made me think of the millions more, like myself, who were fortunate enough to serve in the military without the debilitating injuries so many suffered through, and still suffer through today.

Our nation is losing the freedoms so many have sacrificed so much to provide for us.  Like Bob Revere we have become comfortable with giving in to tyranny without realizing we are doing so.  In one line in the movie Revere says “that’s just the way it is, kid” when talking to his grandson.  Many sit in comfy homes, with plenty to eat, with warm roofs over our heads, and do little or nothing to honor the sacrifices of so many who deserve to be honored. Honoring them is more than a parade on Memorial Day or Veterans Day.  While these things are important, they aren’t the most important things we can do.

Little by little, a government run by dictatorial minded thugs intimidates us into giving away the legacy left by those who have put their lives on hold, or sacrificed themselves, for an ideal that was more precious to them than their own lives.  We give in to the threats of lawsuits by bullies because we want to “just get along and live in peace”.  During the Benghazi hearings Hillary Clinton said “at this point, what difference does it really make?”.  My blood boiled when I heard those words come out of the mouth of one of the most despicable people to ever sit in a seat of government.

What difference does it really make, indeed!!  The more important question is “What difference do I make?”.  What difference do I make  in the bigger picture of liberty for my children, my grandchildren, my great grandchildren.  Like Bob Revere, I served my country honorably in the military.  But again, like Bob Revere, that isn’t enough.  Our future generations need us more than we have ever needed anyone.  The “greatest generation” fought Hitler, Tojo, and Mussolini in World War II to defeat the most evil forces on earth at the time, all to preserve my chance to live free.  Like Revere’s grandson I hadn’t been born yet when my father joined millions of other men to put Bob Revere Grandsontheir lives in harm’s way for a future generation they would birth.  The wars of my day, I thought, were for freedom of our country but they really weren’t, at least not directly as World War II had been.  The wars against Communist expansion were more about the freedom of others living in countries far away from our shores, yet stopping the expansion of evil, in the long run, was necessary for the protection of our land also.

We are in a war today, right here in America.  It isn’t a shooting war, yet, but is a war none the less.  Our war is against the principalities and powers of darkness as described in the Holy Bible, powers that control our government.   We are fighting a war for the very soul of a nation and a future of liberty for our children and future generations.  If we lose this war it will be decades before there will be a chance for freedom, if that chance ever comes.  We are fighting corrupt politicians like Bob Menendez who has sex with underage girls, paid for by our tax money and protected by a corrupt political system that values their power more than they value morality and what is right.  Menendez is only one of many corrupt politicians and bureaucrats who demean the values America stands for, yet sit back and condemn those of us who value honesty, integrity, and morality.Sen. Bob Menendez

The TEA Party rallies and recent gatherings at state capitols to support the 2nd Amendment are encouraging but more needs to be done.  People have finally become alarmed enough to stand up and be counted even though they know a despotic government is recording their words, their actions, their phone calls, e-mails, and internet site comments.  All this is being done to intimidate us into silence or to build a lists of “enemies of the state” to be arrested and murdered when the time comes for the final takeover.

Some cower in silence, and/or temper what they post, out of fear of reprisal from the government.  I have been told numerous times that I should stop writing the articles that I write and posting what I post on social network sites, or tone down the rhetoric out of concern for who might be reading and taking notes.  I am critical of despots in government, regardless of political affiliation, and that is dangerous I am told.  The media is already in the pockets of the despots but the independence minded patriots are not, and will not be intimidated into silence.

We the People can win the war against tyranny but we can’t do it by being silent.  We don’t need to run out into the streets shooting guns and yelling, but we cannot win by sitting silently and allowing the thugs in government to run roughshod over our freedoms either.

Go to the movie theater and watch this movie, or better yet buy the DVD and watch it with your children and neighbors. Pass it around to those who will watch it and stand up for freedom.  No one who has fought for freedom, or anyone who has lost a loved one in that fight, will be able to sit through this without tears.  I can’t imagine how anyone who loves freedom will be able to watch without being touched deeply.  I sit here and write this with tears in my eyes, thinking of the sacrifices of so many and how close we are to throwing all of those sacrifices away out of apathy.

Please share this article with everyone you know, make it go viral in honor of those who have given all for your freedom and those who are still sacrificing for liberty today.  You can watch the trailer here.  Also, go to www.standusa.com and join in the community of Americans taking a stand for liberty, I have.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

    This is not the complete list; it was taken from the 45 Communist goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963.

    Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963 Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 .

    3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
     
    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.
     
    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 

    (Leviticus 20:13If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.)

    27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.”

    29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

    30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

    31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

    36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
     
    37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

    “There exists in this country a plot to enslave every man woman and child. Before I leave this high and noble office, I intend to expose this plot.”-President John F. Kennedy -7 days before he was murdered.

    Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    In ancient Hebrew the word for lightning is barack, the word for heaven or the heights is bama and to connect the words either an “a” or an “o” is used.

    “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” – Barack Hussein Obama – Audacity of Hope

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 (King James Version)
    3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Political Correctness a term first seen in Mao’s Little Red Book, a communist engendered abomination that is instituting censorship little by little.

    “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”- George Washington

    Carl  Marx, once wrote that, the goal of the Communists was to quote,. “enter into men’s minds and cast God down from his throne.”

    Matthew 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

     

    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
     The name “Federal Reserve” was carefully chosen and designed to deceive Americans into believing they were part of our Government when in fact it is privately owned by international bankers in direct violation to  Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution.
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST! 

    Our own US Congress voted themselves a raise. (But vetoed a raise for those on Social Security) A member of Congress only have to be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.  If some one in the military stays  in for 20 years (providing that they are not killed in combat before that) and gets out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of $2,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm’s way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

    The debt added by the previous 43 U.S. Presidents from 1789 through 2002 combined was
       $6.3 trillion

    The debt added by Obama is
        $6.5 trillion

     “I am for socialism, disarmament, and, ultimately, for abolishing the state itself… I seek the social ownership of property, the abolition of the propertied class, and the sole control of those who produce wealth. Communism is the goal.”
    Roger Baldwin, Communist, was born in Wellesley MA and co-founded the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     
     
    In ancient Babylon their priest sacrificed babies to their gods baal, and molech.  
    In America the communist under their socialist programs have sacrificed over 50 million American babies to their god satan!

    Jeremiah 32:35 
    And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

    Leviticus 20:2-5
    2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel , Whosoever he be of the children of Israel , or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel , that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
     
    It is difficult for many people to accept the truth that several of our nations top leaders have been members of the occultic Bohemian Grove. George W. Bush is also a member of this occult organization. Since 1873, the Global Elite Has Held Secret Meetings in the Ancient Redwood Forest of Northern California . Members of the so-called “Bohemian Club” Include Former Presidents Eisenhower, Nixon and Reagan. The Bush Family Maintains a Strong Involvement. Each Year at Bohemian Grove, Members of This All-Male “Club” Don Red, Black and Silver Robes and Conduct an Occult Ritual Wherein They Worship a Giant Stone Owl, Sacrificing a Human Being in Effigy to What They Call the “Great Owl of Bohemia.

    “Leviticus 26
    1Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.

    Leviticus 19:4
    4Turn ye not unto idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods: I am the LORD your God.
    Leviticus 20:6-8 (King James Version)
    6And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

    Isaiah 5:20
     20Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.

    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
    Jeremiah 50:23How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
    BABYLON = the HAMMER and SICKLE!
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:14-15.    14 Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the LORD. 15 Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen , her walls are thrown down : for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done , do unto her.

    Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying , Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down , and shall be found no more at all. 

    - The U.N. Charter was written by Alger Hiss, Molotov and Vishinsky

           — Molotov and Alger Hiss made a secret agreement that the military chief of the U.N. was always to be a Russian, appointed by Moscow

        — It was Russia who insisted the U.N. be placed on U.S. soil
            — Whole sections of the U.N. Charter were copied intact, word for word from the Russian Constitution

            — Kruschev’s orders to the communists have been “Rule the U.N.”

           — The only two U.S.A. Senators who voted against the U.N. Treaty Charter were the only two Senators who had read it

     — The U.N. is helpless on vital questions because Russia has veto power.

           — Under the U.N. setup, the U.S. taxpayers have been forced to make up the U.N. treasury deficit of millions of dollars for Russia refuses to pay her share.

           — The U.N. has never passed a resolution condemning Russia or her so-called satellites – but it does condemn our allies.

           — J. Edgar Hoover of the F.B.I. said, “The overwhelming majority of the Communist delegations to the U.N. are espionage agents.

    — At the time of the Korean War there were 60 nations in the U.N. Yet 93% of the U.N. forces were Americans, and 95% of the cost was borne by Americans.

           — The U.N. policy during the Korean War was to prevent America from winning the victory over the communists.

           — The U.N. was responsible for aiding Castro.

           — Article 47, Par. 3 of the U.N. Charter states: “The Military Staff Committee shall be responsible through the Security Council for the strategic direction of any armed forces placed at the disposal of the Security Council”.

           — All battle plans of General MacArthur had to go through this Soviet Chief.

           — Any future wars fought by the U.N. would be fought under the same military operations controlled by the U.N. Security Council.

    — God is not mentioned in the U.N. Charter and meetings are not opened with prayer? The Communist co-creators of the U.N. had it agreed that there should be no mention of God and Jesus Christ.

    Communist Goals (1963)
    #11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

    “The American people will never 
    knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”— Norman Thomas, Socialist Party Presidential Candidate in 1940, 1944 and 1948, co-founder of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
    “Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.”
    Sun Tzu 
    “We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have communism.”—Nikita Kruschev, former Soviet Premier/dictator.

    The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the Americans freedom and before I leave office I must inform the Citizen of his plight.” PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY
    (5  months after he signed Executive Order 11110, and 10 days before he was murdered)

    The number murdered by Communist regimes or organizations in the past hundred years stands at roughly 120 million. Just for the sake of this ideology, these people were removed from their homes, worked to death in concentration camps, exiled to perish on the Siberian steppes, subjected to the horrible tortures in the most horrible prisons, executed by brainwashed Communist militants, strangled, had their throats cut, or starved to death in deliberately-created famines.
    The savagery of this red terror began first in Russia during the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.

    Jeremiah 50:14-15.    14 Put yourselves in array against Babylon round about: all ye that bend the bow, shoot at her, spare no arrows: for she hath sinned against the LORD. 15 Shout against her round about: she hath given her hand: her foundations are fallen , her walls are thrown down : for it is the vengeance of the LORD: take vengeance upon her; as she hath done , do unto her.

    All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. Psalm 118:10

    Revelation 18:1-8
    1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying , Babylon the great is fallen , is fallen , and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. 3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. 4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying , Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. 7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously , so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. 8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

    “The thing that separates the American Christian from every other person on earth is the fact that he would rather die on his feet, than live on his knees!”. George Washington

      2 Timothy 2:15   Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 

    Jeremiah 48: 10Cursed be he that doeth the work of the LORD deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.

    Revelation 18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying , Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down , and shall be found no more at all.
