WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — January 6 has become the latest American secular holiday of our godless political elite. It is now a day when globalist corporate interests and their stooge politicians virtue-signal their funerary recollections of the day when white supremacists violently tried to overturn the election.
That this is factually inaccurate is quickly buried online with a squirt of patented Big Tech censorship sanitizer.
But as hard as Big Tech tries, it can’t erase the real memories imprinted on my mind and on the minds of millions of “deplorable” Americans.
My memory of what really happened that day was triggered by the picture at the top of this story, a remarkable picture taken by LifeSite’s own Jim Hale. It encapsulates the final descent of our government into despotic tyranny.
On January 6, I was there. I attended the “Stop the Steal” rally and covered the day’s events for LifeSiteNews.com. As I stated then, people of all races and creeds had come to Washington, D.C. to protest the blatant and pervasive election fraud that had allowed Joe Biden to be declared the “winner” of the 2020 presidential election.
We will never know exactly how much entrapment and provocation occurred that day at the hands of the unindicted co-conspirators or of infiltrated Antifa members like John Sullivan, and how much was the result of pro-Trump rioters. Suffice it to say that the only person who died because of the riot was unarmed pro-Trump Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt.
No one will deny that the violence that erupted at the doors to the Capitol was wrong, no matter who perpetrated it. But the globalist elites and their political puppets were given the public relations gift of a generation with which to destroy their enemies, and they weren’t about to squander it.
Throughout the summer of BLM, Americans had watched horrified as violent mobs rioted, burned, battered, and murdered at their leisure while politicians either joined in, or encouraged the criminals, or at a minimum justified their actions. For anyone who lived in a big city in the United States, it is not an understatement to say that Marxist revolutionary mobs had taken over, and law enforcement was either the direct target or ordered to stand down by complicit and cowardly politicians.
COVID restrictions, so ruthlessly applied to small business owners and churchgoers for the early months of 2020, were completely ignored when the left’s brownshirts were setting fire to America during their “mostly peaceful protests.”
Millions of people's jobs and their family's livelihoods depend on the outcome of cases being argued in front of the U.S. Supreme Court TODAY, and we want YOUR NAME on this appeal to the nine Justices asking them to put a stop to Biden's unconstitutional vaccine mandates!
Two separate mandates are on the line.
The first is the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) vaccine mandate, which requires all healthcare workers and staff at such facilities subject to federal regulation, to get the Covid-19 vaccine or submit to regular testing for the virus.
The second is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) vaccine mandate, which is actually much larger in size and scope, and would require all businesses operating in the United States with more than 100 employees to implement their own policy requiring their workers to get the Covid-19 vaccine, or face penalties such as citations and fines.
The OSHA mandate was unfortunately reinstated by the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals back on December 18th, when it lifted an earlier injunction that had blocked it from going into effect as initially planned by the Biden Administration on the basis that OSHA did, in fact, have the authority to issue a sweeping mandate such as this.
If no action is taken prior to January 10th -- less than a week from today -- businesses that fail to comply with this vast government overreach will begin to be unjustly penalized.
That's why we're asking you to lend a helping hand with this urgent effort to defend working Americans' individual liberties and medical autonomy by signing YOUR NAME onto this petition to our U.S. Supreme Court Justices, imploring them to echo earlier federal court rulings that blocked these unconstitutional mandates from going into effect.
It should truly go without saying that any decision that could affect the health and well-being of individual Americans is one that should be made without coercion, manipulation, and intimidation. But of course, that has not been the attitude taken by our federal government over the course of the last year.
The Biden Administration has shown time and again its hostility towards American citizens' constitutional freedoms, and by attempting to institute these mandates, it is embracing medical tyranny over medical autonomy once again, and our country's workers will find themselves its latest victim.
We already know that the federal government has overstepped its bounds in its wide-encompassing campaign to coerce the public into getting the vaccine, and, of course, neither OSHA nor CMS has the ability to craft legislation, even in times of emergency, nor the authority to issue, but these mandates will effectively do just that.
This is an abuse of power within the executive branch, plain and simple.
That's why our nation's highest court must be steadfast in protecting the rights of our nation's working people rather than the authoritarian desires of Washington politicians and bureaucrats.
In the wake of the rising Omicron variant of Covid-19, we are reminded that the vaccines heralded by Joe Biden and his allies are not only experimental in their present nature (clinical trials have yet to be completed), but are largely ineffective at preventing the spread of the virus itself.
As reports of fully-vaccinated Americans testing positive for Covid pour in, we must ask ourselves: When will enough be enough?
Should these mandates be upheld by the Supreme Court, and therefore permitted to go into effect while appeals from challengers work their way through lower courts, countless Americans will be at risk of losing their jobs and sacrificing their livelihoods for not adhering to authoritarian-style demands on the part of our federal government.
The CMS mandate will ensure that millions of healthcare professionals and frontline workers will go without work, and, in turn, millions of patients will go without the care they need -- even as Covid numbers continue to spike.
Likewise, the OSHA mandate, which would affect an estimated 84 million American workers, will not only leave millions more without work, but will also penalize employers who choose to prioritize their employees' freedoms and personal needs over submitting to unreasonable, oppressive government demands.
This is not for the greater good of our country and its people, and it's certainly not constitutional.
Our Supreme Court Justices must do their duty and protect the American people from these dangerous mandates.
Please SIGN and SHARE this important petition asking our nation's Supreme Court Justices to stand up for the rights of American workers by blocking Joe Biden's unconstitutional vaccine mandates from going into effect while challenges to the policies work their way through the court system.

In other words, what Americans witnessed that summer was the real insurrection, the real violent revolution. January 6, 2021 gave the politicians who had fomented the BLM summer of riots — and colluded to weaken election laws to the point where there could be no election integrity to speak of — just what they needed and exactly when they needed it.
It allowed the lawless to pretend they were in favor of law and order.
Much of America saw through their smokescreen. Thanks to brave reporters like Jim Hale and Doug Mainwaring and others at LifeSiteNews.com, we were able to document what really happened and share it with the world, Big Tech censorship notwithstanding.
For me, January 6 has always been and will always be “Three Kings Day”, the Feast of the Epiphany, when the Magi came to worship Jesus and, in Hispanic Catholic tradition, children receive presents from the Three Kings.
But, unfortunately, for me January 6 is now also a day when much of America’s claim to being a nation of laws was stomped underfoot like the angry mob that let out that primordial scream in response to manifestly unjust COVID lockdowns, BLM riots, and election fraud.
As captured in Jim Hale’s masterful picture, the part of America controlled by the global elite had ceased being the land of the free.
All is not lost – it can never be to those who trust in God – but January 6 capped a political year when my political innocence and inherent trust in the rule of law were lost forever.
