While researching the latest news in preparation for writing this essay I came to understand something that almost led me to change the essay title to 'Looking For Leaders And Finding Them.' On second thought I decided to continue The War On Truth series and present some encouraging news about our fellow Americans, using the Leader concept in the image to the left.
A brief history of my writing on the internet:
Shortly after Hussein was first elected I began blogging, convinced that by providing facts and common sense I could wake up many of my fellow Americans. That belief was one of the greatest mistakes of my life as most simply do not want to know.
My first website was Freedom Rings 1776 and after four years I ran into what seemed to be an insurmountable problem with a broken blogfeed and finally decided to begin Fix Bayonets. Well in time I was able to repair my initial site and it is doing well with, at this point, nearly a half million hits. I know, that will not compare with Alex Jones and many others but, unlike them, I like to adhere to the truth and ignore the sensational.
At any rate, I began Fix Bayonets with far less hope of a pleasant outcome than I possessed when starting Freedom Rings 1776 and that altered attitude was obvious in the name of the new website. It was a cry of desperation. That feeling of near desperation has now faded and has been replaced with one of acceptance and a very very firm resolve.
But this essay is not simply about my website but also the readers who visit it. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words and shortly I shall present a picture of those people; a group with whom I am proud to associate, and a gathering of kindred souls that gives one hope as this wretched darkness descends about us.
The picture that I am going to show needs a bit of explanation as it is a copy of today's blogstats for Fix Bayonets.
That influx made a drastic difference as March totaled out at 14,868. April improved to 16,022 and the May fell off to 15,046 and it appeared that this would become the norm of 15,000 or so readers a month, and then something happened to drastically change the score. The month of June is not over and yet readers have suddenly doubled to 29,478.
If it sounds as though I am bragging, nothing could be farther from the truth. The fact of the matter, I have been watching these numbers on a daily basis and was quite puzzled for a while, but did not grasp the true significance until today. Then it all fell into place and left me with a feeling of pride; not in myself, but in those precious and courageous Americans who just keep reposting the bad news that I deliver.

I have often expressed disdain for those craven liberals among us who simply do not want to know the truth. Long ago I stopped trying to wake them up and realized that they would be the first on a very long casualty list when everything goes south. Such people to me have become totally irrelevant, and through my writing I began addressing only those with the intestinal fortitude to carry on through the collapse and begin the rebuilding of our Constitutional Republic. In short, I began a quest for leaders, and I am beginning to believe that I have found them, or perhaps they have found me.
As I stated above The feeling of near desperation has now faded and has been replaced with one of acceptance and a very very firm resolve. Watching daily news events I have accepted the fact that Nothing we can do is going to prevent the collapse that will befall this nation. It is coming and of that there is no doubt. The idea is to survive it and begin anew, and at that time WE will gain the upper hand.
The conservatives of this nation are a well armed people and the biggest army in the world. We are also a law abiding people who have long placed our faith in the ballot box to right the wrongs of this country. That ballot box has been rigged for some years now and I place no hope in it, nor do I place any hope in either political party, our courts, nor in our voters at large.
Where I do place my hope is in that graph above and in the people who are swelling the ranks of my readers by leaps and bounds. People such as they are going to be the salvation of this nation. None like the dire predictions that I have long made but earlier this month I pulled out all of the stops and began totally telling it as I see it. The battle ahead is not meant for the timid, and those who can deal with the truth are rapidly joining our ranks. As for the rest, I have little time for concern. They have brought our country down to this point and I have been a long time ardent believer in Justice, even if that justice is somewhat delayed.
As for pulling out the stops, allow me to give credit where it is due. A special internet friend named Janet Scarborough contacted me earlier this month. She informed me that she agreed with most everything that I had written and agreed that we were headed for a collapse, and then she asked for the near impossible. She had the unmitigated audacity to ask me to provide a feeling of hope in spite of my dire predictions. I love unmitigated audacity under the right circumstances. And so...
Being totally unable to find any hope that we can prevent what is coming I decided to look beyond, to the aftermath of the collapse, and it was there that I found hope. When it does occur the tide will turn. Right now we are outnumbered by the corrupt, the lazy, and the greedy and they control the elections. After the fall, there will be no problem with elections, and those millions of obedient voters will be badly outnumbered by the armed patriots of this nation. Then, and only then, will things begin to change. When survival becomes the name of the game those who do not know how to survive will fall by the wayside. RIP.
This is the hope and the message that I have begun conveying, and a simple little graph has delivered the message that I am on the right track. Now allow me to show you yet another graph. The one above is my all time image on a monthly basis. The one below is a day by day image of this month alone and it is so revealing. Early this month this site was averaging around 500 hits per day with a low point of 317 on June 2. It takes time for a trend to begin, but around the middle of the month it begins as those who agree with my conclusions begin to gather and now, near the end of the month that 500 average has now reached two peaks exceeding 2000 hits in a twenty four hour period. Where it goes from here only time will tell but right now it is telling me that if you agree with my assessments then you have a lot of company out there and some of them are gathering at Fix Bayonets.
For the record: The drop off on the far right is not today's total. It is now just past midnight and his snapshot was done as I write this, and the total for the last seven hours is 548 which is more than this site used to get in a full day.
Thank you Janette.
I will now make one exception:
If you have the courage to deal with the reality before us, prepare for the fall, and survive that fall, then we the last remnants of Old America, will begin to build a New America.
They say that a picture is worth a thousand words. I have shown you two that tell us that we are not alone. What they tell me personally is that I have to a degree been delivering the wrong message. In a two week period my viewers have quadrupled and that indicates that much of this nation is fully expecting the worst and are preparing for it. That is some of the best news for this year.
They have given up on the promises, false hopes, politicians, and rigged elections, but they have not given up on America, and its future. These are the people who will shape that future. From their ranks will come our new leaders and I must regard them as a Band of Brothers. Together we will rebuild the American Dream, but must wait until the dust settles from the fall of the last one.
May we learn from that fall, and pass the word on that our posterity never again succumbs to the evils of a total democracy. The Founders warned us and we strayed. We, the survivors, the leaders, and the rebuilders must find our way back to a Constitutional Republic and never again stray from that path, for at the end of that path there lies the shining city on the hill that Reagan spoke of. It is there that we shall once again find the truth that has so long been under siege.
I shall see you there.
