The real Thanksgiving

Friend --

I have an announcement I want to share with you about the day after Thanksgiving. But first:

Over decades, liberals have hijacked Thanksgiving, like other holidays, and turned it into a celebration of godlessness But the real Thanksgiving, as it was founded, is a day set aside for public thanksgiving and prayer to God!

When George Washington proclaimed the first Thanksgiving in 1789, he did it at the request of both houses of Congress. That's because they had a lot to be thankful for after going through war to create a unique and great nation. And there was no confusion who to thank for our freedom. In his proclamation, Washinton wrote that the day will be set aside in "the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be."

Imagine the protests if a government official proclaimed this today! We have strayed so far. I encourage you to read Washington's proclamation, especially where he wrote that government should be a discrete function in the lives of Americans.

As we give our thanks this year, I want to especially thank the financial supporters of CURE who  make our work possible. As we begin a major transition within the next couple of months into a contentious election year, CURE will push to Fix Our Inner Cities so we can Make America Great Again! (FOIC to MAGA)

REMINDER: If you listen to Rush Limbaugh's radio program on Thanksgiving, you will learn the fascinating history of the roots of today's holiday that they don't teach our kids in public schools: how a failed experiment with socialism led to the Thanksgiving we know today.

On Friday, I will appear on Rush Limbaugh's show to discuss my new book, "Necessary Noise: How Donald Trump Inflames the Culture War and Why This Is Good News for America." Rush wrote the introduction to my first book, so this is an amazing homecoming for me.

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

Your foot-soldier for freedom,
