(Jan. 25, 2021) — Iconic bass and guitar intro. “They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway….”
When I was in elementary school that song played in the background of a Radio Free Europe advertisement. (1) I listened to it on a little transistor radio that was given to me at Christmas when I was around nine years old. That 30-second radio spot had a huge impact on me. At that tender age I became cognizant that people existed who were not free and who were not allowed to talk.
Around the same time The Diary of Anne Frank was on television. It was a big deal in our house. My older brothers and sisters talked about it all week before it aired. They were allowed to stay up and watch it but I didn’t make the cut. It came on past my bedtime. I ended up sneaking downstairs, crawling under a table, with some cheddar cheese and raisins to munch on, and watched the movie in the reflection of our dining room window. I’m sure my Mom knew I was there but she didn’t let on.
I think she was impressed by my effort.
By fourth grade I knew enough about the dark forces of communism and fascist dictators to terrify me without even knowing the names of what terrified me.
I knew that little girls and their families had to hide in attics or die. I knew that people were not allowed to talk freely or read a newspaper so they had to hide and talk in whispers and listen to news on a secret radio station. I also knew what the Iron Curtain was.
I even used my knowledge of it to torment my little sister one time. We were playing outside in a pasture when she ended up on one side of a barbed wire fence with me on the other. I immediately got real serious and told her that she was on the other side of the Iron Curtain and that she would never, ever be able to come back to this side. She would never see our Mom again or any of us and if she tried to cross over, she would be killed. I kept it up until she was sobbing good and hard and then I figured out a way to save her before we got shot. I was a bloody hero.
I could make a game of it because, even as a child, I understood that those bad things happened in other countries. Not in America.
Those childhood days are gone. Democrats, who have fully embraced the radical left, are now using the tactics favored by Dictators, Communists and Fascists, here in America. They became unhinged and undone (2) after Trump won the 2016 election, fair and square, and concocted a plan to do “whatever it takes” to get rid of him in 2020.
Recipe for a Coup
4 years of relentless attacks on the duly elected President of the United States (3)
8 months of virus, product of China, use it to destroy economy, terrify, control & isolate citizens (4)
Not even a pinch of church (5)
5 months of sustained rioting in American cities, use BLM and Antifa brands (6)
Increase Presidential Election Day to Presidential Election Months (7)
Add millions of fake, fraudulent ballots, make sure to use blue ballots NOT red (8)
Be increasingly censorious with the first amendment (9)
1,776 cups of shredded Constitution, the American kind (10)
Sprinkle with judges who are adverse to doing their job (11)
Mix in at the very last an imitation Trump insurrection to mask the taste of the real Democrat sedition (12)
The cherries on top, Republicans who lack courage(13)
Dietary warning: If you love America and freedom don’t eat this.
On January 6th, 2021 the Democrats stuck a fork in it.
We have witnessed the Democrats orchestrate and implement the greatest election fraud in the history of our country so they could gain absolute power. They do not have a guilty conscience about their treasonous act, but they are afraid of suffering any consequences for it. Of getting caught. That’s why they were so terrified when a million Trump voters showed up at the Capitol Building. They know that we know what they did. Their election theft is like the telltale heart and it’s beating right under the Capitol Dome.
We are truly a country without a president. And people who will steal an election, who will violate the sanctity of the Constitution and the vote of the American people, do not have noble aspirations.
“Silence!” The role censorship played in making this coup a reality.
The unholy alliance between the Democrats and those who control social and mainstream media platforms has proven to be very powerful. That alliance was instrumental to their plan. They had to silence Trump and his voting base because their ideas for America could not compete with his ideas. (14) Hundreds of thousands of people, who voiced a conservative idea or a controverting opinion to those on the left, have been censored with increasing regularity over the last five years. After they stole the election a total gag order came down like a hammer and a sickle.
You were forbidden to talk about the election fraud, the ongoing Democrat coup, the value of Hydroxychloroquine and the ineffectuality of wearing masks. If you disagreed with shutting down the economy, locking people in their homes and out of their churches, their schools, restaurants and bars, you were silenced. If you talked about your political support for President Trump you were labeled a “domestic terrorist.” (15) Jobs were threatened if you supported Trump. (16) Democrats and the media called for Trump voters to be hounded, branded with a scarlet letter, have their children taken from them, and forced into re-education camps. (17)
And those great defenders of free speech who call themselves journalists, librarians and the ACLU rarely objected to this censorship. In fact they applauded it. (18)

It is time for a Radio Free America.
The mission of Radio Free Europe, also known as Radio Liberty, “is to promote democratic values and institutions by reporting the news in countries where a free press is banned by the government or not fully established. Our journalists provide what many people cannot get locally: uncensored news, responsible discussion, and open debate.” (20)
“By most accounts, the creation of Radio Free Europe…was a noble effort funded by the U.S. government and supported by the vast majority of American people–probably the best investment ever made in defeating an oppressive, murderous and dangerous strategic enemy using peaceful, non-lethal means. U.S.-supported broadcasting behind the Iron Curtain was opposed only by the radical Left—American Communists such as Angela Davis—and a few Democrats in the U.S. Congress, most notably Senator J. William Fulbright (D-AR).” (21)
Funny that sharing ideas can change the hearts and minds of people and give them the courage to challenge “oppressive, murderous” regimes. Speech can convince you to vote for this person over that person. I say, “Bring it on and may the best idea win.” But the Democrats say, “Shut your mouth or we’ll shut it for you!”
A free press no longer resides in this country. The first amendment has been muzzled. This is a Constitutional right that most people in America still believe in. (22) It is a core democratic principle upon which our country is based. It has been banned by the Democrat politicians and their allies. They would not allow the President of the United States of America to speak! They effectively threw their political opponent in to a Gulag in Siberia.
I am making a request to the United States Agency for Global Media, which governs Radio Free Europe, to provide a radio platform to American citizens where we can go to get “uncensored news, responsible discussion, and open debate.” Where we can promote our democratic values and principles. I’m asking them to base this station in Poland, where free speech is still defended. (23) We need a Radio Free America. God bless President Trump. (24)
