“He, therefore, who is now against domestic manufacture, must be for reducing us either to dependence on that foreign nation, or to be clothed in skins, and to live like beasts in dens and caverns. I am not one of these.” President Thomas Jefferson

Hard to believe Thanksgiving Day is but a few days away…ah, do I hear groans? You know what comes the following day:  Black Friday.  Don’t know how it got such a gloomy label.  Silly, really.  The Friday following turkey day is the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.  A tradition in America. No matter what’s going on in the world and no matter how hard America haters try to destroy our traditions, we will NOT submit or surrender.

While Christmas is just another “holiday” for millions, it is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ by Christians and Messianic Jews[1] world-wide. While I am one of those who believes Jesus was not born on December 25th, tradition throughout the world sets aside that day to celebrate His birth.  I have all my life.  For a lot of Americans Christmas Day is another paid holiday, lots of football and suds.  However, when you take your last breath, none of that will matter.

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” John 14:6 (KJV).  Money itself is not evil, but how the money is used is what’s important.  One can have family stuff million-dollar bills (if they existed) in your coffin with your corpse but its meaningless.  Eternity is a long time.  Your soul is eternal. It doesn’t matter how much money you’ve accumulated in your lifetime.

Americans are very worried about the economy.  Millions more have been added to poverty level since President-Elect Donald Trump was cheated out of his second term.  Not going to get into the finer intricacies of the root of that problem and why Congress refuses to implement the only solution in this column.

What millions of us do know is inflation has been killing the middle class by design for decades. Americans – especially seniors – have been dipping into their retirement just to make ends meet.  Those at the poverty level are totally dependent on food banks and either state or unconstitutional federal welfare.  This holiday season (Thanksgiving through New Year’s) is going to be a huge challenge for so many families and businesses.  But, know what? We can make a difference that will be positive long term good for our republic.

First, buy nothing, if possible, from our mortal enemy, Communist China.  For another column, they’re in financial trouble more than people know.  Stop enriching corporations that hate America and who only want your wallet. “Woke” corporations who want to jam nonsense (pronouns instead of a person’s name) down our throats and promote the horror and destruction of the trans cult; the list is endless in their social engineering agenda.  So many lives destroyed because impressionable young people – or parents who decide their son should be a girl at age 5 and start them on dangerous hormone blockers and then mutilate them by their teens – don’t give them your money.  They need your wallet; you don’t need them.

Second, support American companies that make quality products and who want your business.  Be creative by making something for a gift.  America has millions of wonderfully talented people.  My little sister works at a nail salon and every year, she puts together something she’s made special for each of her clients and they love it.  Buy local and support your fellow Americans who provide the things you need or want.  The more products we purchase from American companies, the more competitive they will become. The more we demand Made in America from big retailers, the more they will seek out those companies as suppliers.

The more clothes we buy from American companies, the more jobs we create along with quality and competition.  We are under no obligation to keep people in foreign countries employed with jobs that used to be here on our soil.  Now, now.  I’m not against trade, but I am against “free” trade which has been destroying our ag, industrial and manufacturing sectors since NAFTA (No American Factories Taking Applications) now replaced with an even more destructive one:  The United States-Mexico-Canada (USMCA) “Trade Agreement”. [2][3] Tragically, Trump listened to his globalist advisers and agreed to yet another agreement we should never have entered into.

After pounding on this issue since 1994, there are signs that ‘Buy Made in America is making a come-back and it warms my heart. I can only tell you what it’s been like looking into the eyes of Americans who lost their factory and manufacturing jobs since 1994. Throughout my travels over nearly two decades after the signing of NAFTA, I spoke with old timers in towns who darn near cried talking to me over the destruction. Displaced workers who hate living in big cities, forced to leave their places of birth and family, just to find any work to feed their families because “free” trade destroyed all they have known. Families scattered all over the country because of the gutting of our most important job bases; so many cannot afford travel expenses to see each other for years. How very sad.

Fathers who asked me, “What am I going to do? I have two children to feed. My wife wants to stay home with our children to give them the love and nurturing in those important first years. We could do it on my former pay. Now my job has gone to China. What am I going to do?” If only the American consumer could have seen the pain of their fellow Americans when more than a million good-paying jobs (especially textile workers) went overseas or to Mexico after NAFTA and GATT were signed.

Now the sovereignty destroying USMCA Agreement is in place with more trade agreements being signed on a regular basis that do not benefit US.  I’ve refused to be part of it since 1995. I don’t need some electronic gadget made by “cheap” slave labor, thank you. I don’t need 65 pairs of shoes, an iPOD, a play station or 19 purses. If Americans would just buy Made in America, competition would keep prices reasonable and we will all be supporting America first. We will be investing in America and the future for our children and grand babies.

Might I make some suggestions for this Christmas?  Make memories.  One year I gave my niece’s children a family gift: a one-year pass to the Las Vegas Natural History Museum. Cost: less than $50.00; not sure the cost of family passes this year. That gift was used many times over the year and the kids loved it.  There are wonderful museums all over this country.  Get kids off those dang phones.  Bring family together and give children the gift of learning.  They have wonderful shows that are not only entertaining, but kids learn something instead of mindless garbage electronic toys that promote laziness and atrophy of the brain.

I believe in my heart that children would rather spend time with their parents and family on an outing than get another cheap piece of plastic that gets thrown aside for another cheap piece of plastic under the Christmas tree that gives nothing meaningful to the child.  The money stays in the local economy, does not support communism or sweat house labor run by brutal regimes.

I wish my mom’s phone wasn’t invented, 2nd grader writes in school project  //  Why Parents Really Need to Put Down Their Phones – Parents on devices distress children and reduce their resilience.  // How parents’ smartphone use affects their kids: “Of all the measures included, the only one that was associated with lower child emotional intelligence was parental use of cell phones in the presence of their children.

I visited one of my nieces years ago in Colorado Springs, CO.  Got to her house, she was blabbing on her ‘smart’ phone.  After hello and for the next half hour, one call after another while I sat in the kitchen.  I finally got up to leave and my niece said, “Auntie, where are you going?”  I told her I didn’t drive 10 hours to listen to her gab on that damn phone.  Turn it off or I’m going back to my hotel.  That took care of that and I spent two days with her and the kids which I remember today.  Fond memories.

Another suggestion is humane aquariums and zoos (like the fabulous San Diego Zoo).  Just look up on-line for your area.  Oh, boy, the aquarium in Monterey Bay, California, is absolutely a must visit.  Maybe a family member is financially struggling. Give a gift card for an oil change at the appropriate location.  Giving from the heart.  I read or hear all the time, “Everything is made in China.” Wrong.  Small to medium businesses are the backbone of our economy.  American owned, American made, American pride.  Sure, it might take a few extra minutes to look up Made in USA but if we don’t support our own, we’ll end up owned and controlled by international corporations who don’t give a damn about you.  They will turn on us like rabid dogs, make no mistake about that.

An excellent resource:  “Roger Simmermaker has written five books on buying American and trade policy since 1996, including three editions of How Americans Can Buy American: The Power of Consumer Patriotism. He also writes ‘Buy American Mention of the Week’ articles for his website HowtoBuyAmerican.com and WND.com. Roger has a degree in Electronics Engineering Technology and is a former president of his local Machinists Union (IAM&AW).

“Roger Simmermaker has been a guest on the Fox Business Network (Mornings with Maria, Neil Cavuto), CNN (Lou Dobbs Tonight, Headline News, Saturday Morning News,) Fox News (Your World with Neil Cavuto, Fox & Friends, Hannity & Colmes), and MSNBC (The Ed Shultz Show, Sam Shane). Roger has also been quoted in The Wall Street JournalBusiness WeekUSA TodayUS News & World ReportIndustry WeekAAA World MagazineChicago TribunePittsburgh Post-GazetteOrlando SentinelFlorida Today, and The Washington Times. Radio interviews include WGN Chicago, KFI Los Angeles, and KSFO San Francisco.

“Roger grew up in Jacksonville, Illinois, earned his degree in Electronics Engineering Technology in Chicago, and now lives in Orlando, Florida, with his wife and four cats.”  Do visit his web site.  As he says so spot on (Emphasis mine):

“Buying American is about so much more than simply buying American-made products. We truly buy American only when we buy American-made products from American-owned companies–that’s what keeps more jobs, more profits, and more tax revenue within our national borders.  American-owned companies typically pay more taxes to our U.S. Treasury, employ more American workers, and use more domestic parts in their products than foreign-owned companies.”

This is wonderful and hopefully, more and more companies (and investors) will follow their example:

U.S. Clothing Company Combats Supply Chain Holdups by Growing Its Own Cotton, Oct. 23, 2023

Congressman Henry Clay said it best back in 1824: “The measure of the wealth of a nation is indicated by the measure of its protection of its industry; the measure of the poverty of a nation is marked by the degree in which it neglects and abandons the care of its own industry, leaving it exposed to the action of foreign powers.”

A special shout out to Mike Lindell, founder of My Pillow.  From crack addict to CEO providing hundreds of great paying jobs for Americans for decades.  Conservatives all over this country know who he is and all the sacrifices he’s made in exposing the provable fraud which robbed President-Elect, Donald Trump, a second term.  Millions and millions of his own money spent on exposing the fraud is now causing Lindell to suffer severe financial problems – like paying lawyers for lawsuits from the ‘get Trump’ scum bags.

Visit his web site and see if there’s products that might be on your shopping list from pillows to pets.  He also launched My Store – Shopping Channel TV.  Pretty cool.  Be part of Save America.

NewsWithViews.com has so many excellent publications in their book section and also extremely well done and critically important CDs and DVDs. We can continue to educate our fellow Americans using these valuable resources. Whether you or a loved one has a particular interest in the law, our food supply, educational, cultural or religious issues, clean no “woke” propaganda children’s books.  Kids who read succeed.  I hope you will check out the selections.  BooksChildren’s booksDVD’s.

I did have a Made in America section on my web site which I updated regularly.  Dozens and dozens of companies who manufacture here and employ Americans.  But, hitting on the links for this column, almost all of the companies are now out of business so I retired it.  Sad.  Tens of thousands went under because of the totally unnecessary COVID lockdowns.  Here in Texas with our supposedly great governor, Greg Abbott, 50,000 businesses closed their doors for good.  Thanks, gov.  Of course, big box stores like China Mart aka Walmart got a free pass.

Making America Great Again means starting right here at home.  On Thanksgiving I always think of my fellow Americans who work so hard in so many sectors for you, me and our families.  I am thankful for all their sacrifices.  I am thankful for our farmers and ranchers who have been so badly SCREWED by Congress longer than I’ve been alive.  Let me tell you, they have a tough life whether it’s raising cattle, chicken, turkeys or pork.  Besides battling weather – it’s a constant fight against being driven off the land by big tech farming operations.

Our dairy farmers/dairy ranchers get up before dawn every day of the week no matter the weather or how tired from the previous long day of labor.  Family farms are under constant attack either by unelected state bureau-rats choking them to death with regulations or the vermin in Congress or state capitols.  Our truckers fondly known as ‘road warriors’.  Without them, well, you can just imagine.  So, I want to thank all of them this Thanksgiving for what they do for all of us.  Not an easy life.

WE – you and me – WE are the Masters of our Destiny and while America is ready to go over the cliff, WE can and WE will stop those out to destroy us.  Those who fought in the Revolutionary War had it worse than us but with God’s help, we will prevail.  Those sitting on the sidelines afraid of their own shadow, get out of the way.

Defeatism Ensures Defeat by Dr. Edwin Vieira, Sept. 14, 2023.  (Empasis mine) Ten years ago: “If any combination of words sounds as a leitmotif throughout the political tone-poems being played in “the alternative media” today, it is that America is inevitably, inexorably, irretrievably, and even already “doomed”: “The Constitution is dead.” “Martial law and the confiscation of firearms is just around the corner.” “Surveillance cameras…”; “constant NSA, CIA, and FBI surveillance…”; “FEMA camps…”; “drone strikes…”; “blah, blah, blah…” ad nauseum. And worst of all: “There is nothing common Americans can do to stop it.”

“This discordant theme is being performed with such overdone fortissimo in “the alternative media” that, on the subject of America’s imminent demise, “the alternative media” are no longer “alternative” at all, but merely a set of echo-chambers for the big “mainstream” media’s dirge that even those patriots who are not half-witted “extremists” and rustic buffoons are still helpless, hapless, and hopeless in their opposition to the fascistic police state now being erected at breakneck speed in the Disgrace of Columbia. It is not enough that the “mainstream” media are overrun with well-coiffed reincarnations of Josef Goebbels, in the viewers’ choice of sexes. The likes of Lord Haw-Haw, Axis Sally, and Tokyo Rose are over-represented in “the alternative media”, too.

“This is just too much. But what can American patriots who refuse to resign themselves to unconditional surrender do about this situation? First and foremost, they can recall that “God helps those who help themselves”. They can stop complaining about their weaknesses and start taking an inventory of their strengths. They can stop whining that nothing can be done to save this country and what used to be called “the American way of life”, and instead figure out what they can accomplish with the moral, political, and especially legal resources at hand.” Rest at link.

This is the most extensive list I’ve seen of “woke” companies and corporations who not only want your money, they want to control your thoughts and brainwash you through clever Market Steet advertising.  Anheuser-Bush made a HUGE mistake pushing some guy dressed up as a woman (part of the trans cult) to sell their beer.  As of July 2, 2023, their stock has lost $27.5 BILLION dollars.  It will be a long time, if ever despite partnering with UFC which is apparently the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization before they might make it back.

Sadly, so many rank-and-file hard working people have been laid off (distributors, drivers, etc.) since Anheuser-Bush unleashed their social engineering stunt which backfired spectacularly in their face.  Men and women with families to feed, mortgages/rent to pay, their job gone in a NY second.  It’s been awful.  But, you can only push us around for so long before we strike like a scorpion and we do it through our wallets.

Wishing you and yours a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving, hopefully with family and friends.  Be safe out there, the crazies are everywhere.  And thank Almighty God for all the blessings he’s bestowed on America.  Now it’s up to us.

[1]  What Do Messianic Jews Believe and Practice?

“Messianic Jews are a blend of the Jewish and Christian faiths. Mostly of the Jewish nationality, they keep the basic culture, traditions, and principles of Judaism. Additionally, Messianic Jews believe Jesus Christ was the Son of God and through faith in his death and resurrection, there is salvation.

“Messianic Jews adhere to the teaching of the Torah, the Hebrew Bible, yet believe that the promised Messiah was Jesus Christ the Son of God.

“Judaism and Messianic Jews share similar foundational truths. Both faiths are derived from God’s covenant with Abraham in Genesis 15 as well as God’s commandments given to Moses and the Israelites in the book of Leviticus. Messianic Jews continue to follow the commandments and traditions in the Jewish culture, but understand the salvation of Jesus Christ serves as an atonement, or payment for sin—not the act of observing the Jewish Holy Days.”
