Starting in 2020, several catastrophes hit this country and tried to destroy its greatness:
The COVID-19 pandemic put the nation’s health security in jeopardy;
The lock-down measures aiming to stop the spread of the virus put the nation’s economy in jeopardy;
The unfortunate deaths of African Americans and the social turmoil during the Black Lives Matter movement put the nation’s law and order in jeopardy;
The move to reject our country’s historical figures, including our Founding Fathers, put the nation’s history and heritage in jeopardy;
The fraud-challenged election further split the nation into two hostile groups, putting the nation’s Constitution and the President’s governing legitimacy in jeopardy;
My fellow Americans,
Will we let these challenges bring our country down or will we be able to heal our wounds, reunite our country, and bring our greatness back?
Will we be able to use love instead of hatred, rationality instead of prejudice, and peace instead of violence, to work with each other?
Will we be able to go back to our traditions, to our values, to what our Founding Fathers laid out for us, to safeguard our system and to defend our great America?
The answer? Yes.
For there are righteous people in this land who have never forgotten their Pledge of Allegiance: “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”;

For there are righteous people in this land who remain peaceful when going to the streets to express their opinions despite other groups that resort to violence and riots;

My fellow Americans,
Let’s work together to bring back the glory of this great America! When we start on this honorable endeavor, let’s first understand: many of our challenges are related to the communist’ aggression, via its ideological influence and tactical infiltration, with the attempt to destroy our system; and that attack did not start in 2020 – it has been going on for many years.
