Dan Bongino exclusive: This place is worth saving

There’s never been anything like this and there never will be anything like this again.

Dan Bongino (please visit his website if you’re not sure who he is) was a featured speaker at the American Freedom Tour event that took place in Jacksonville on Oct. 8-9.

Over the course of his speech, which I personally found absolutely hilarious, Bongino expressed dismay about the Left, and challenged the Right.

He began, “Leftists have this crazy, bizarre idea that a hundred people around a boardroom table in Washington D.C. somehow know more about your life than you do. And us in the room are like: How the hell is that? Like my own kids don’t know everything about me, like how does some idiot in D.C. know?

“Like we complain about government all the time, right? We go to the DMV. We’re like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m in line all day.’ You go to quasi-government entities like the post office and you’re like, ‘Man, I could run this thing better,’ right? And then Leftists are like, ‘Yeah, the DMV, the post office, they kind of suck. But I definitely want you to be in charge of my health care and crack open my chest when I’m about to die.’ You’re like … what are … like, what is in that pipe you’re smoking, man?

“So I said on FOX this morning, so I said, you know, their ethos—right—their credo, what they live by, is that government can do everything you can do better, right? Run the economy. Manage your healthcare. Run national security at the border. Run a court system.

“Everything they can do, they can do better.

“And I said, you know, it’s odd having that worldview considering that these guys suck at everything. Like they can’t … right? They can’t get anything right. I said, don’t you find it weird that the level of incompetence for these people is stunning?

“I mean, if … if Joe Biden has given everyone in this room one gift—you’re like what? No, seriously, if he’s given us one gift, it’s he’s fully exposed the fact that the federal government cannot do a damn thing right. There is nothing. Nothing. Zero. Nothing.”

Bongino continued, “Everyone in this room knows that Joe Biden … I think Joe Biden is definitely a dumb person. But the people around him are not. He is. He’s just — I’m sorry — he’s dumb. You know, he’s just not a smart guy. But the people around him are not stupid. This is all intentional.

“How is it not? Explain to me with a straight face how what I just told you about the economy, inflation, and the border, how a sane person would say, yes, this is good for a prosperous county. You can’t. There’s not a single soul in this room who can explain to me why that would make sense that this was not deliberate and intentional.

“Listen, I love the Lord Jesus Christ. He’s my Savior. I surrendered a long time ago. He has changed my life and what I did.

“But I’m not kidding when I say this: I thank Him in the morning, and I thank Him for not making me a liberal. Like, I—right? Living in this vacuous vortex of stupid, I can’t imagine it. I can’t imagine waking up really believing that this guy in charge in the White House is gonna fix problems I can’t fix myself.

“So your whole worldview is that I’m so dumb, I can’t fix my own business and my kids’ education. But definitely Joe Biden is gonna handle it. A hundred percent. Joe Biden and Hunter, when he’s not doing sex things, like they’ll figure it out. Hunter Biden, when he’s not blowing art out of his nose or whatever he’s doing now. He blows his art out of his skull. I’m like, I’ve never heard of this in my life.

“It’s not a sob story. You know, God gives us our obstacles for a reason. We should actually relish them because they can change your life if you look at them the right way. And a lot of bad stuff kind of happened to us, you know, health-wise and everything like that. And I don’t tell you that as some kind of a boo-boo, sob story. I mean it. It was a gift because it enabled me to see the world a different way.

“You know, we all have an expiration date, right? But none of you, thankfully, probably know what that is. You don’t want to know what that is. But when you realize it exists, we all think we’re immortal. We do. I mean, who in the room is thinking about dying? Thankfully, probably no one. You never live your life thinking about dying.

“But when something like that happens to you, it really opens your eyes and you start to see things different. You do. It changes everything. And I’m telling you, this place is worth saving. I know we’re in a really dark time right now. I know it. I get it. We are. I know we’re in a dark time.

“There are people in this room — I’m looking at these faces right now — and I can guarantee you, there are probably hundreds of people in this room who were police officers, military, who, I mean literally not figuratively, put their asses on the line to hand their kids and grandkids the country that was given them, but even better. We got an upgrade.

“Nothing upgrades. Entropy and disorder. You leave a bush to grow, it grows chaotically. It never grows in order. Nothing in nature, nothing grows in an orderly fashion except the United States, which despite all of the idiots in the White House and all of the morons in Washington, D.C., it still gets better. How is that?

“Nothing in nature gets better. You read the book The Road Less Traveled, he makes the whole point—a whole chapter on that—how everything in the world is characterized by growing disorder except this place. You’re telling me — you can’t tell me now that that’s not evidence that the hand of God has touched this place.

“So I leave you with this last thought. We all have our own personal obstacles, but the greatest country in the history of Planet Earth, touched by the hand of God, has its obstacles too.

“God has a way of putting a price on things. Nothing’s gonna be easy. If it was easy, everyone would do it. If it was easy, every country would be the United States. But it’s not. There’s only one. There’s only us. There’s only ever been us. There’s never been anything like this and there never will be anything like this again.

“It’s worth saving. Don’t be depressed. Leave tonight knowing you got elections in the country ahead of you, you have to hand to your kids. And that you’ll walk up to the pearly gates with a resume in front of the Almighty and say, ‘I did my best to save what You gave us.’

“Thank you so much. Save this place.”

American Thinker: Conservative stars inspire at the American Freedom Tour

American Thinker published an article highlighting speakers and events from the eventful first day of the American Freedom Tour in Phoenix

Earlier today American Thinker published an article highlighting speakers and events from the eventful first day of the American Freedom Tour, held in Phoenix on Nov. 19 and 20.

The article, written by C.S. Boddie who also writes for Meadowlark Press, LLC., begins by narrating what was likely the most memorable few minutes of the entire day. During a pause maybe 10 minutes into Judge Jeanine Pirro’s speech, someone in the audience called out, “A verdict is in.”

If you’re politically informed, you know exactly what that person was talking about: The results of the Kyle Rittenhouse trial.

Tense moments passed, the Judge paused, we all felt the gravity of the moment. Judge Jeanine offered up a brief heartfelt prayer … and then someone shouted, “Not guilty!” If you were in the room that erupted in cheers and tears, it’s a moment you will never forget.

For perhaps the first time in a long time, Pirro was speechless. But only for a moment. Choked up, she confessed, “I am blown away. Now let me tell you something, you know there are calls to action, and I am shaken to my core right now.”

She continued, “As soon as we give up to the anarchists, we’re lost and it’s over. If this had gone the other way, anarchists would have been able to say you don’t have any rights. This message is loud and clear. It’s the Constitution that gives us the right to have a gun to protect ourselves.”

I encourage you to read the rest of the article over at American Thinker, which covers talks by Dinesh D’Souza, Dr. Steve Turley, Lt. Col. Waldo Waldman, and Pastor Mark Burns.

Over the coming days, we’ll published excerpts from many of the talks, along with exclusive video footage from the event. Check back regularly, or sign up for our newsletter to be notified when each article is published.

Sheriff David Clarke: We must create ‘Boston Tea Party Moments’

It is time for you to get off the sidelines. Get out of your homes. Get out of your comfort zones.

Sheriff David Clarke was a featured speaker at the American Freedom Tour event that took place in Jacksonville on Oct. 8-9.

In his speech, Clarke emphasized the primacy of the US Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

Major shifts in our nation’s history have not been enacted through executive orders or mandates from federal agencies. They have come about through the Constitution, including the dozens of amendments added to it. We really need to more highly value our Constitution, and the process for amending it.

And we need to take to the streets to promote adherence to it.

Sheriff David Clarke began, “And everything that I’ve tried do to in nearly 40 years in law enforcement centered around one principle: the United States Constitution.”

“Here’s what being a conservative means to me: I’m for limited government, lower taxes. I believe that the Constitution protects individuals and not groups. These are individual rights, ladies and gentlemen, which is why I push back against gun control laws that are gonna inhibit my ability to exercise my second amendment based on something some other kook did. These are individual rights. Take his or her rights away for doing that. Don’t mess with mine.

Clarke continued, “OK, this document, here’s why it’s particularly important to me. And this is a sensitive one for me: This document freed my ancestors. You all know the 13th Amendment freed the slaves. The United States Supreme Court did not free the slaves. The President’s declaration did not free the slaves. We changed the Constitution to give the newly freed slaves rights under this document. We went the Constitution route and that’s the way to go.

“As a matter of fact, ladies and gentlemen, the United States Supreme Court upheld that ugly institution of slavery several times. One was Plessy vs. Ferguson where they declared separate but equal constitutional. And also the Dred Scott decision that returned Dred Scott, who had fled to the North, back to his slave owner. The United States Supreme Court did that.

“You see why I do not want these things settled in the court? I want it settled within this, under Article 5, that says you can amend this anytime you want, but here’s the process. And it’s by Article 5. But you see where we’re at today. That’s some heavy lifting. These people don’t want to do it. They just want to run to court and let some unelected judge make Constitutional law.

“And, for you women in the crowd, United States Supreme Court did not give you the right to vote. The Constitution did under the 19th Amendment. We did the hard stuff. That is a very high standard and a process to amend this, and it’s supposed to be. But any time you want to give people rights not enumerated in this document, the way to do it is through Article 5. It’s not to run to the courts.

“And that was the big criticism that I had about the United States Supreme Court approving gay marriage. Forget about the efficacy of it for now. I’m not here to argue or discuss the efficacy of gay marriage. However, if we want to give, this Constitution doesn’t speak to marriage — not even between a man and a woman. It doesn’t speak to it. You do not have a Constitutional right to marry. Nobody does. Not a Constitutional right. Maybe under the states. They set up a system for it and they can quantify it, but not the federal government.

“So I said at the time, on TV, cause I’m not afraid to stand up for what I believe in and to articulate it. I don’t care what kind of blow back I’m gonna get. I do not care.

“I believe in this document. If a court grants you a right, guess what? The courts can take it away. You cannot under this unless you go through the process like prohibition. The courts didn’t override prohibition. They changed it with another amendment. That’s the brilliance of this document, ladies and gentlemen.

“By the way, this is my pocket version. I have about ten of these. Everywhere I go, I have one. In my car. In my home. At my desk. In my travel bag. Cause that’s how much it means to me.

“And I read this document every year. It doesn’t take that long. It was written by simple men. Lawyers screwed it all up. Straight-forward language on all of the amendments, the Bill of Rights. I mean, it’s pretty straight-forward language.”

At this point, though he had been animated throughout his speech, Sheriff David Clarke became especially passionate as he continued:

“I know what the founding fathers were willing to die for. I know what Abraham Lincoln was willing to die for. I know what Nat Turner was willing to die for. I know what Dr. Martin Luther King was willing to die for.”

“I need to know what are you willing to die for? Because I’m not really seeing that passion.

“How many of you have engaged in the last couple of years in a protest, in a general strike, in picketing? A few hands. Not enough. This is the tactics — I’m gonna say we’re going to have to get use to using some of the tactics of the Left. They own the streets right now. The streets are … that’s the battlefield today. The Left defines that and we let them. The Left is in the streets. You know where we are? We’re in think tanks. We’re in TV studios in front of a camera. You know where else we are? We’re behind our computer screens. We’re the keyboard warriors, sending out posts and funny memes on Facebook and Insta—. That’s not an effective tactic to defeat this enemy. You’re going to have to take to the streets.

“Every day you need to bring the resistance. Every day you need to be in the streets in some form. At a school board meeting. That’s going to the streets. Get out of your homes. Get out of your comfort zones. Get to those schools, help those parents and those moms out. And, if worse comes to worst, if that Boston Tea Party moment presents itself, tip the tables over. When Republican poll watchers and Republican canvas workers in Duval County and all that were getting kicked out and I was saying to myself, ‘No, no, no, no. Tip the frickin’ tables over. Tip the tables over, have the ballots fly all over and say, We’re not putting up with this crap!’ That’s a Boston Tea Party moment, ladies and gentlemen.

“No, it is time for you to get off the sidelines. Get out from behind that computer keyboard and take to the streets and help those people, help those parents, help those law enforcement officers beat back the Progressive Left.

“You are going to have to develop the courage cause I already have. You are going to have to develop the courage to look the Progressives straight in the eye and say: I’m coming for you and hell is coming with us.”
