You're a "Clear and Present Danger"

Oct 24, 2022

Joe Biden gave a chilling speech where he shared his plan to strip nearly 75 million Americans of their constitutional rights, including you!

Biden called people whom he labeled “MAGA Republicans” a “clear and present danger.” I’ll explain below how this is a specific legal phrase with a very harsh and consequential meaning. We cannot dismiss Biden’s comments. We must not remain silent in the face of this specific threat.  

When you read about what “clear and present danger” means, it is clear Biden wants to silence you! Speak now or forever hold your peace.

Pastors are key to establishing a firewall. But they have been lied to, bullied and intimidated into silence. We have a resource that counters these lies with the truth.  

Rush this powerful Silence Is Not an Option DVD and booklet into the hands of two pastors for just 19 dollars. That covers all the costs to get these materials directly into their hands to give them the freedom to speak out and encourage others to do the same.

Joe Biden lit up Independence Hall blood red, and looking every bit the part of an angry dictator, he evoked accusations of fascism against anyone who didn’t support his agenda. He claimed:

“Equality & democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise … [I’m here] to speak as plainly as I can to the nation about the threats we face, about the power we have in our own hands to meet these threats and about the incredible future that lies in front of us if only we choose it.”  

What is that dangerous threat and what is that bright future? The threat is the views held by at least half of Americans, and the future is one where he can attack and silence any person with whom he disagrees.

Biden claims that his supporters “are the true heirs of the American experiment … [while] Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism.” He also claims that the “Republican Party today is dominated, driven and intimidated by Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans, and that is a threat to this country.” His language here likens one party to being held hostage.

Then Biden goes on to claim that anyone who supports Trump and similar candidates “embraces their extreme ideology” and is a “clear and present danger.” His description includes half of America and the nearly 75 million people who voted for Trump!

The phrase “clear and present danger” is specific, legal code established by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. in 1919 to determine if a situation is a threat to the public, individual citizens or the nation. A ”clear and present danger” allows the government to strip First Amendment freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of assembly from anyone so labeled!

Biden is setting up millions of Americans to lose our freedoms in a way that we have never seen in America. We are warned. We know exactly what he wants to accomplish. Biden used his official platform to demonize, ostracize, dehumanize and vilify everyone who does not support his agenda.

You have a choice now. Our best defense against these attacks on our freedom is found in voting our values. Now it is time to act on this clear warning. You can remain silent, or you can give community leaders the tools to speak out and activate every value voter to speak up.  

Sponsor two or more clergy to have their own copy of the powerful resources in the “Silence Is Not an Option” offer today.

Biden is not pushing an idle threat.

Before the last election, Biden laid out his plan to curtail oil and gas production. Now all of us—especially those on a fixed income—are being crushed under the inflation this caused.  

By now instead of oil and gas in the crosshairs—our First Amendment freedoms are in the crosshairs. This is deadly serious!

Biden went on to state, “MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution. They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. … And they’re working right now, as I speak, in state after state to … undermine democracy itself.” Biden then claims patriotic Americans “are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.”

[T]he threat to American democracy is real,” Biden claims. “And, folks, it is within our power, it’s in our hands—yours and mine—to stop the assault on American democracy.

That is quite the accusation and “solution” coming from the Office of the President against the people! But then he goes one step further and admits that this is happening now, “we’re on that path, moving ahead."

Already, I have seen this in action. A pro-life father hadn’t broken any laws. He had only defended his young son against harassment by a pro-abortionist, all of which was caught on video. But then the FBI swooped in with nearly 30 armed FBI agents to this home with small children in the wee hours of the morning. In reality, his “crime” is that he was pro-life and he dared to use his First Amendment freedoms outside of an abortion clinic and protected his own family.  

This is just the beginning. Elections have consequences.  

In the face of these urgent concerns, I’m glad we can provide you with a better solution, a way to peacefully fight back. You can help shape the understanding and activism of faith leaders and opinion shapers across America. Provide them with Silence Is Not an Option to set them free to lead their congregations and communities to fight for freedom and truth by selecting here.

Thank you for making a difference.
