We are often stunned by the bravery of many of our fellow Patriots. So many have stood up to school boards, vaccine mandates, mask hysteria, state election officials, large corporations, the vast medical industry, and the federal government.
All of these brave people deserve our appreciation for their dedication in the long fight to save America and our founding freedoms. They are fighters who are standing and fighting when we need them the most.
We will tell their stories when we find them so we can all celebrate their courage.
Courage is contagious. Share their stories with friends and acqaintances.
1- There are brave teachers who are pushing back on the leftist union curriculum.
A defeat for the Loudoun County school board
QUOTE: This Fall, Northern Virginia, and above all Loudoun County, became a major battleground in the fight against wokeism in public schools. The issue played a role in Glenn Youngkin’s victory over Terry McAuliffe, though not a primary role in my opinion.
In Loudoun County, the matter of public school wokeism has also been litigated in the case of Tanner Cross. He’s the teacher suspended for stating, at a school board meeting, that his Christian faith precluded him from deferring to a student’s preferred pronouns because doing so would constitute a lie about the reality of the child’s identity.
Cross sued. A judge ruled that the school board violated Cross’ First Amendment rights, and temporarily blocked the suspension through an injunction. The Virginia Supreme Court affirmed that ruling.
Now, in a settlement of this case, the Loudoun County School Board has agreed to a permanent injunction prohibiting it from retaliating against Cross for expressing his constitutionally protected views on the board’s transgender policy. The school board also agreed to remove any reference to Cross’ suspension from his personnel file and to pay $20,000 toward his attorneys’ fees.
The litigation isn’t over, though. Prior to settlement, the court allowed Cross’ complaint to be amended to add new claims against the school board by three Loudoun County teachers. Unlike Cross, who just challenged his suspension, they contest the underlying “preferred pronoun” policy to which Cross objected at the school board meeting. That portion of the lawsuit will continue against the board.
2- Obama endorsed candidate loses to a Republican in South Carolina.
Republican Defeats Democrat Mayoral Candidate Despite Top Endorsements
QUOTE: Endorsements from top Democrats including President Barack Obama and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) were not enough to secure a victory for the Democrat mayoral candidate in Columbia, South Carolina.
Republican Daniel Rickenmann defeated Democrat Tameika Isaac Devine during Tuesday night’s mayoral election in Columbia by 4 percentage points.
Richland County, where Columbia is located, saw President Joe Biden win by 38 percentage points last year. According to a New York Times analysis of the election, precincts in Columbia overwhelming voted in favor of Biden.
3- Sometimes heroes are very young and display fortitude that few adults could duplicate. These two deserve our support and prayers, as do their families who raised them.
Nick Sandmann to Kyle Rittenhouse: ‘I Am Here for You’
QUOTE: Covington Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann has offered a voice of support for 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, having previously been slandered as a racist white supremacist by the left-wing media.
In an op-ed for the Daily Mail, Sandmann recalled the horror of being a teenage kid being slapped with some of the worst labels imaginable by the likes of the establishment media, offering a kind of kinship with Kyle Rittenhouse because the “attacks on Kyle came from the national news media, just as they came for me.” Sandmann added that the media “came quickly, without hesitation, because Kyle was an easy target that they could paint in the way they wanted to.”
He called out the corporate media’s business method as conducive to this type of attack:
This is the problem with liberal media outlets in the United States. They want to get the story first, get the most views, make the most money, and advance the agenda from liberal patrons. These outlets cover themselves when they are wrong with small footnotes at the ends of long articles, clarifying that new information has come out and that they have updated their coverage.
Sandmann further scolded politicians and media figures like President Joe Biden and Lebron James, telling them all to “shut up” before rushing to judgment. President Biden, for instance, referred to Rittenhouse as a “white supremacist.” Sandmann said:
From my own experience, the death threats, feeling of no future ahead, and that millions of people hate you, is enough to alter you in many concrete ways and permanently. Make no mistake: even the strongest of people cannot resist the mental impact when the media war machine targets you.
4- Another way to stay as healthy as possible. Being in the sun daily (weather allowing) is the best way to get Vitamin D which is being shown in more studies to help with many illnesses.
Study: Vitamin D powerful in disease prevention
QUOTE: A recent study finds that vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acid supplements decreased the likelihood of autoimmune disease by 25% to 30%
People who do not get vitamin D from regular sun exposure or eat a diet rich in vitamin D may find their levels low or deficient. Scientists say that could impact their ability to ward off autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis or Crohn’s disease.
In fact, researchers say there appears to be a relationship between vitamin D and Covid-19. A recent study from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in May of 2021 discovered that vitamin D deficiency is associated with Covid-19 cases as well as severity of the disease.
5- In addition to a growing number of US House Democrats deciding not to run for re-election in 2022, we have this guy seeing the writing on the wall and switching parties.
Texas State Rep. Leaves Democrats, will seek re-election as a Republican
QUOTE: Texas State Rep. Ryan Guillen announced he has left the Democrats and has joined the Republican Party for his re-election
“I’m announcing that I’ll proudly be running as a Republican to represent House District 31,” said State Rep. Ryan Guillen.
Guillen tweeted “After much consideration and prayer with my family, I feel that my fiscally conservative, pro-business, and pro-life values are no longer in-step with the Democrat Party of today, and I am proudly running as a Republican to represent House District 31.”
6- It is easy to feel alone in your political life. The left does a very good job of cutting us out of the herd so we wander alone.
WE ARE NOT ALONE!
More Prefer Republicans To Win Control Of The House And Senate,

On Employer Mandates DISAPPROVE.
52 – 46 percent disapproves of the federal government’s mandate that businesses with 100 or more employees require their employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or to get tested on a weekly basis if they are not fully vaccinated.
7a- The great state experiment that is the state of Florida continues to show the way in fighting the virus and the freedom stealing mandates that follow it.
Florida Legislature Approves Bills Limiting COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates
QUOTE: Florida Legislature on Wednesday passed sweeping legislation that seeks to protect unvaccinated workers from federal COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
The four bills were approved largely along party lines during a three-day special legislative session convened by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis against federal COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The bills now head to the Republican governor’s desk to be signed into law.
If signed into law, Florida will become the first state that issues financial penalties for businesses that require proof of vaccination against COVID-19 as a condition of employment.
Among the measures, private businesses would be blocked from imposing COVID-19 vaccine mandates unless they allow workers to opt out for medical reasons, religious beliefs, immunity based on a previous infection, regular testing, or an agreement to wear protective gear.
7b- UPDATE: Governor DeSantis signs the bill
DeSantis Trolls Biden By Holding Signing Ceremony For Anti-Vaccine Mandate Bills in Brandon, Florida
QUOTE: In a thinly-veiled swipe at Joe Biden, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Thursday chose Brandon, Florida to sign a package of anti-COVID-19 vaccine mandate bills into law.
The legislation will prevent employers from requiring workers to be vaccinated in order to stay employed. Exemptions employers will be required to allow include health or religious concerns; pregnancy or anticipate future pregnancy; and past recovery from COVID-19.
“We provide protections for people—no nurse, no firefighter, no police officer, no trucker, no ANYBODY should lose their job because of these COVID jabs,” DeSantis said. “We’re making sure people have a right to earn a living, people have a right to protections at their place of employment, and that parents have protections to be able to direct the upbringing of their kids,” he added.
8- This was a shocking development in the fight against the mandates. Who would have thought that an entrenched government boondoggle like OSHA would say, out loud, that the Biden vaccine mandate was unconstitutional.
OSHA Suspends Medically Coercive Vaccine Mandate After Legal Pushback
QUOTE: The U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has suspended the implementation and enforcement of its controversial vaccine mandate just days after a federal court temporarily blocked the rule, citing “grave statutory and constitutional issues.”
OSHA announced it would “suspend activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the [Emergency Temporary Standard] pending future developments in the litigation,” according to OSHA’s website.
The administration’s backdown comes less than a week after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued and reaffirmed an explosive motion to freeze the vaccine mandate prompted by the Biden administration. On Nov. 12, the court ordered that OSHA “take no steps to implement or enforce” the mandate “until further court order.”
9- This is not good news. The federal government using the FBI has raided homes and taken property of citizens whon have done NOTHING criminal or illegal. She did her the job she was elected to do.
The good news is that this heroine, Tina Peters, is NOT backing down.
Listen to her interview on The War Room for more detail:
Episode 1,420 – FBI Raids Home Of Gold Star Mother Bannon’s War Room
FBI Raids Home of County Clerk and Whistleblower Tina Peters — The State Official Who Refused to Wipe Election Data from Computers Without Making a Copy
QUOTE: Mesa County Colorado Clerk Tina Peters knew that the Colorado Secretary of State was most likely committing a crime when she ordered voting machines cleaned of 2020 Election results earlier this year. So Tina Peters made a backup of Mesa County’s 2020 voting machines.
She was then targeted by the state for her actions. Tina Peters had her office raided after she made the decision to not allow Democrat partisans to wipe clean the election data from her county’s machines. Tina Peters has received numerous death threats for saving the data. Democrat officials demand it be erased.
10- Another brave fighter for freedom. It is very scary to go against the indoctrinated medical community.
Texas doctor resigns after suspension for ‘spreading dangerous misinformation’ about COVID-19
QUOTE: A Texas doctor who was suspended for promoting ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19 has resigned from her job. Mary Bowden, a Houston-based doctor, had previously had her privileges suspended from her job for “spreading dangerous misinformation” about COVID-19. Bowden, an ear, nose and throat doctor at Houston Methodist Hospital, announced her resignation on Monday via Twitter.
“I have broken free from Methodist and very much appreciate the flood of support I have received! Sincere thanks to all of you who have reached out with kind words,” she said after posting her resignation letter online.
She also said in her resignation letter that she is not “anti-vaccine” but opposes “vaccine mandates on principle.”
Bowden further touted her record of having treated more than “2000 COVID patients” and said that “none of them have required hospitalization.”
She added in her letter that “recent experience shows that vaccines are not 100 percent effective” and that there is “substantial evidence of efficacy of ivermectin in treating COVID-19.” Bowden has previously touted on her personal Twitter page that “ivermectin works,” and has tweeted multiple times on her personal account that “vaccine mandates are wrong.”
11– Florida is no longer a SWING STATE!
It’s Official: GOP Has Overtaken Democrats in Florida Under DeSantis
QUOTE: Increasingly popular Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has made it official: The Sunshine State is now a red state under his leadership.
“Republicans now hold a slight voter registration edge over Democrats, just another sign that the state is moving away from its two-decade-old reputation as the nation’s largest battleground state. It’s also more bad news for Democrats as they try to knock off rising national GOP star Gov. Ron DeSantis next year,” Politico reported Wednesday.
Do not despair. There is hope. People are working and fighting. More people are seeing the path that we are on is untenable.
Pray for our country.
