Editor’s Note: From the Back Forty is Liberty Nation’s longest-running and most popular weekly column. Capturing the truth each week from heartlanders in flyover states, LN gives voice to the hard-working Americans otherwise ignored by the coastal elites.
If one listens closely to the sage wisdom and common sense of flyover folks, the nation’s ills could be solved over a pot of coffee – with or without real cream and sugar. The younger generation would be taught a valuable lesson in freedom and loyalty to the best country in the world, for one thing. Secondly, China is not your friend, and the book Red-Handed should be on everyone’s reading list. And finally, farmers everywhere know why the chicken crossed the road and will let Liberty Nation readers in on the secret.
Nancy In the Beginning
Speaker Nancy Pelosi was once – some might say eons ago – an American bent on protecting democracy and encouraging other nations to follow our lead. As a junior member of Congress in 1991, she was on the ground in Beijing during a diplomatic visit – just two years after the events in Tiananmen Square. Following that revolt, Chinese government tallies claimed 300 civilians and soldiers, 23 students from Beijing, as well as those described as “ruffians,” were dead. Hospital totals and eyewitnesses push that number into the thousands.
During her stay in Beijing, Pelosi smuggled a banner and proceeded to the middle of the infamous square with two Congressional cohorts. They let the flag unfurl, and it read: “To those who died for Democracy in China.” So, where did that dark-haired renegade lawmaker go? Why did the warrior, fighting to keep China from becoming a most favored nation trade status in the World Trade Organization, change her tune? Some say she went to the dark side. But remember, those were the good old days before China had its fingers in the proverbial American pie.
Peter Schweizer penned the tome Red Handed and, in it, he outlines a plethora of disturbing incidences involving the Pelosi family over the years. The most obvious is the amount of money her husband’s business interest with China netted the family: Between $5 million and $25 million in a fund that specialized in Asian investments. “Paul Pelosi received partnership income between $100,000 and $1 million,” Schweizer notes.
In Beaumont, TX, the sentiments of one man echoed across the mountains and the plains. As Dwain Cox said: “If there is any justice left in America, the prisons should be full of politicians.”
Americans Defect for China?
In 2008, no one in America could stand a commie – including our federal government – based on freedom and stuff. Then, lowly congresswoman Nancy Pelosi threw a fit in chambers over allowing China to host the Olympic Games. That has certainly changed. Today, Pelosi advises Americans not to incur “the anger of the Chinese government.”
The 2022 Olympics, already fraught with controversy, are now ruffling the feathers of red-blooded folks who still pledge allegiance to Old Glory and stand and sing the National Anthem – but some Olympic athletes have decided to play for China. I kid you not.
Americans Jake Chelios and Jeremy Smith have told the USA for the next two weeks to hockey “stick it.” Chelios spoke for the two of them: “Since we’ve been over here for three years, whatever it is, you do start to feel a closeness to China. We’ve been eating Chinese food, we’ve been living the Chinese culture, so there’s a certain closeness you start to feel with China, and you start to feel like you’re actually going to represent them, and you want to win for them.” He says they were both “flattered.”
That did not sit well with the folks in the good old U. S. of A. Especially in Bourg, LA, as Steve Bouquet offered, “Please pull their passports while they’re back home. But, oh, I forgot, the communist in our government would never do that.” And Sher Miller in Garden City, KS, echoed Bouquet, “Hope they stay over there for good! They should never be allowed to compete for our country again.”
Tina Lammers in Idaho had a bit of advice for Chellios and Smith: “The host country supports torture, slavery, and genocide of minority populations. So maybe take a visit to the prison camps before you go all ‘warm and fuzzy’ on this oppressive regime.”
Well, it hasn’t been labeled the Genocide Games for naught.
Why Did the Commie Chicken Cross the Road?
The Pentagon has had to admit this week they were nearly breached by a “Red” hen. The chicken was apprehended before amassing any top-secret military intel at U.S. Department of Defense headquarters. In keeping with their super-secret squirrel policies on the public knowing anything about anything, Chelsea Jones, a spokesperson for the organization, released a statement reading, “We are not allowed to disclose exactly where she was found. We can only say it was at a security checkpoint.” The announcement was nearly War of The Worlds infamous. Some folks have screamed, “the sky is falling” for days now.
Apparently, the Rhode Island Red hen appeared out of nowhere but has now been adopted by a DOD staff member who has a small farm (read: interrogation black site) where the said fowl will live happily ever after (or waterboarded to find what she really knows).
But every farmer, rancher, and overwhelmed agriculture hobbyist already knows why the chicken crossed the road: BaKaaaawwws!
