Resolve to Conquer or Die

Dallas, TX – -( When President Barack Obama was re-elected, the winds waned behind many patriots' ships' sails.

My wife, Gena, and I felt that sock in the gut for our country and posterity, too. But instead of cowering in defeat, I believe we need to discard conventional (unsuccessful) strategies and advance in new directions.

The future of our country is going to hinge not upon the Republican Party's reinvention (as so many think) but upon each of us patriots asking what isn't working about our approach and modifying our attacks for greater impact in the culture and political wars.

You don't fight and win unconventional wars with conventional weapons; that's why we lost in November.

The majority voted to continue to be pelted from within the U.S. by the Obama administration and from without by the United Nations' rogue usurpation of Americans' rights. In the past six months alone, the Obama administration has teamed up with the U.N. to enforce Internet intrusions, clamp down on gun rights, further regulate the airline industry, utilize billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to expand U.N. global warming control and expand global abortion. And who can forget the proliferation of Agenda 21 and growth of Interpol to enforce its new international law?

Will the next four years of Obama intensify the secular progressive assault against our republic and your freedoms? Without a doubt! Read “Fool Me Twice,” by Aaron Klein, for a preview of the bombardment, or watch the insightful and compelling documentary “The Isaiah 9:10 Judgment,” which foretells America's future.

The big question is: Will the next four years result in the fundamental transformation of the U.S.? The answer to that is: Only if we let it. Freedom is lost not by a single election but by surrendering to everyday assaults on our liberties.

In the Revolutionary War, Gen. George Washington faced blistering and humiliating setbacks. One of them was in the Battle of Long Island. Even with the inspiration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence at his back, on Aug. 27, 1776, British forces under the experienced general Sir William Howe routed the American Army.

Defeat was never nearer. The end seemed near.

According to, “General George Washington knew he had badly miscalculated.”

But as you know, the difference between a good leader and a great one is his ability to learn from his failures and miscalculations and recalibrate for victory.

As a world-class fighter, I learned a long time ago that it isn't going down that creates defeat; it's staying down and sticking to the same ol' tactics that guarantee future loss. As the adage goes, if you always do what you've always done, you'll always be where you've always been.

When Washington was cornered by the British and faced what appeared to be impending doom, he stayed the course but almost always revamped his strategies.

What Washington wrote to the Continental Army before the Battle of Long Island should be inscribed on every patriot's wall now, given November's defeat:

“The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves; whether they are to have any property they can call their own; whether their Houses, and Farms, are to be pillaged and destroyed. … The fate of unborn Millions will now depend, under God, on the Courage and Conduct of this army. … We have therefore to resolve to conquer or die.”

As we walk into 2013, Gena and I have been asking again how we can best be used in the fight for God and country and seeking in particular how the God of our Founding Fathers would have us respond to November's political mudslide. We believe we know. And part of it means altering our strategies and approach as Washington did.

I'll say this much: If you don't see Navy SEALs on the battlefield, don't assume for a moment that they're absent from the battle. They merely have gone stealth, underground (or underwater!), cloaked and engaged in covert measures and unconventional methods of warfare.

Washington's words should be reread at the turn of this new year, especially by anyone who feels that the end is imminent.

    1. Chuck should get together with Clint Eastwood and a few others like Jesse Ventura and Tom Selleck and take this fight to the Congress and Senate.

    2. If and when the time comes we will activate, until then we must do everything in our power to pressure our congress to “lay off” also pressure our local communities to insure our constitution at all times. We managed to get precious breathing time in IL, BECAUSE we all made our voice heard! loud and clear. Keep up the good work.

    3. Okay, so are you going to tell us the strategy? There are a lot of us who are awaiting orders. The army needs orders from Washington. So what are our orders? Ready to fight

    4. Chuck I have the greatest respect and admiration for you. Appreciate your patriotism very much. I might disagree somewhat though with your suggestion of covert resistance if that was indeed your meaning. Wouldn’t it be better to confront this evil befalling us in the open and head on? Aren’t there enough patriots to stand against this fraudulent government? If there aren’t,and we resist covertly, won’t we be seen as terrorists and criminals? I say stand an fight. I can’t believe that our military would not join the patriots in this. Maybe its time Chuck. Maybe its time to push the button and let it all out. I remember someone said something like liberty is refreshed from time to time by the blood of patriots and tyrants alike. Its hard to go to war; I have done it before on several occasions. But I learned that evil is best confronted in the light, not in the dark. We need a leader Chuck, not a place to hide. Thank you for all you have done, and all that you will do.
