Alea Iacta Est… (“the die is cast”) Election 2018


Vote November 2018
Alea Lacta Est… (“the die is cast”) Election 2018

USA – -( As I took pen in hand this day, hypothetically speaking, my goal once more is to impress upon you the absolute seriousness of this critical moment in time for the survival of our republic. And, for you to believe in your heart, that the upcoming midterm elections will be the most important in our Nation’s history.

Know that President Trump not only knows the stakes, he knows exactly what he is doing like the master chess player, making all the strategic moves as we get closer and closer to checkmate!

And, as I began collecting my thoughts, it came to me how the words of a number of great men and philosophers, along with the more recent words of one desperate man, have provided all the food-for-thought that you will need for the total comprehension of our dilemma, which I alone could not have said better myself.

My title has been used by many great literary writers. The words “Alea Iacta Est” are Latin for the “Die Is Cast” or as in 49 BC, when Julius Caesar ‘Crossed the Rubicon’ by the use of radical or risky courses of action – leaving us with the question, will once America-the-Beautiful soon enter into a similar demoniacal point-of-no-return.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer once spoke of how it will be our apathy that eventually kills us. “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil. God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” And, might we add, not to vote is foolish.

And, as we are taught from an early age, evil can only be defined as the absence of God, similar to the darkness that appears where there is no light. The absence of God is now rampant in the politics and culture of the United States of America.

Once Again we Need to Do the Work

The once ‘Shining City on the Hill,’ the beacon of freedom and wealth for all the world to see, is rapidly deteriorating. To paraphrase Hemingway, “There are two ways in which a country can die, gradually, and then suddenly.” The vast majority of our citizens are unaware, or too busy to care, of the consequences of what is happening to their country as they go about their work-a-day-lives. They are not prepared nor have they allocated the time or resources to think regarding the devastation that may well await them if the Democrats were to win the House majority in November.

Resist Trump
Resist Trump

When Cicero wrote of his warning, “A Nation can survive it’s fools….but, it cannot survive treason from within….he rots the soul of the nation….he infects the body politics so that it can no longer resist…” he was like a prophet, warning us of the coming of the usurper Barry Soetoro, also known and self-named Barack Hussein Obama.

And, find it ironic for his shadow government to use that exact name – Resist – as proof that his words were true.

If you were given an unredacted copy of the actual script, or as Q Anon likes to refer to it as The Plan in which President Donald J. Trump is following step-by-step, day-by-day, you would know that he is in the process of ‘throwing off such government and providing new guards for our future security’. Trust The Plan!

Which brings us now to the desperate man, James Clapper, whose only goal today is to reduce his exposure when the SHTF. Mr. Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence (DNI), admitted on CNN in a pre-planned statement and warning, with the full knowledge of the interviewer and producers so they would not ‘cut’ the broadcast, how former President Obama instigated all the ongoing investigations into President Donald J. Trump, by stating,

“If it weren’t for President Obama we might not have done the intelligence community assessment that we did that set up a whole sequence of events which are still unfolding today including Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation. President Obama is responsible for that. It was he who tasked us to do that intelligence community assessment in the first place.”

Please note that this intelligence assessment of which he speaks includes the Carter Page FISA application for the sole purpose of spying on the
Trump campaign, which was confirmed by FBI Agent Strzok when he posted: “The WH is running this.”

Recently, President Trump found himself amazed and admitted that “I had no idea how evil some of them are…” – he had some very well-known people in mind. And, the evil of which he spoke has been likened to a clinical psychopath who possesses a void where the vast majority of good and honest people have a conscience and/or moral moorings in what Plato referred to as ‘the inner voice’ which separates men from other animals.

At the very top of the aforementioned ‘how-evil-some-of-them-are’ list are BHO and HRC. Please know this to be true, but we first must win the elections in November; and in President Trump’s process of throwing-off-such-government-and providing-new-guards, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama, and many others will be indicted, found guilty and incarcerated, where We The People will finally return to a country with equal justice for all. Look for an October surprise that will send shock waves across the nation and the world.

Allow me to leave you with the words of Judge Andrew Napolitano when he opined: “In the history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its maximum hour of danger. We are that generation. This is our roll! Now is that time. Freedom must be defended.” Amen.

Have you ever stopped and asked yourself – so how the heck did Donald Trump win? We know they cheated, lied, spied and ‘possibly killed’ (Seth Rich…) for HRC to win, but she didn’t. Why?

Laus Deo. Pray for our country. We know your Guiding Hand will be there with us, Lord. Please tell us what You want us to do?

Superb article which I dearly loved to read! The other Latin Axiom, which we should have all been reminding ourselves of for the last two decades, “Quis custodiet ipsos custodes.”, has only been practiced by a few Keen Minds. This sad fact has brought us to our current situation: we face a truly existential crisis even greater than that which we experienced in 1860. However, unlike the widespread ignorance of the average American during 1860, said ignorance was not willful said ignorance for the vast majority of people. Rather unfortunately, today the same cannot be said. The vast majority of… Read more »

Depressingly true. I think I need a drink.
I have been saying the same thing for years, and all it’s gotten me is odd looks and “Don’t contact me again,” notes. The good news is that I’m old enough that, hopefully, I won’t see how bad it gets.


I read this a few days ago and it makes sense and is very accurate: The price good men pay for the indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men…..Plato
Get out and vote, your freedoms depend on it. These midterms are the most important in our lifetimes.

Peter Scarborough

This article would be more persuasive if the author had bothered to look up the Latin phrase.


FYI. I went to google translate and he was spot on. The trouble with Latin, as well as English, it that there are many ways to say the same thing.

Dave in Fairfax

Well, yes and no. This is a quote, so there’s only one right way. Latin didn’t have a “J”, and we didn’t use them either for a long time, which is why there is no J St in Washington, DC. Google really shouldn’t be trusted, on a lot of fronts. Other than that, yes, you can paraphrase things a number of ways. I wonder if they still teach Latin in school.

Wild Bill

Geees Dave, schools don’t even teach cursive, logic, civics, history or history much less Latin!
I think that schools have replaced all that with the teaching of Obama is our Savior and Heidi has Two Mommies!

Jo Ann

Perhaps “ales jacta est”?


Love it when someone reads all the crackpot Ammoland columns, says “hold my beer,” and really goes for it. How many days off your meds does it take? Are Depends necessary when communing with the laptop for long enough to add just the right edge? Latin really adds an apocalyptic flavor without having to resort to Bible verses. Omnia Gallia in tres parted divisa est.

Dave in Fairfax

More like, Omnia Civitates Foederatae Americae in tu partes divisa est. If you’re going to be a smart@$$ get it right, troll.

Vietnam Brown Water Veteran

Well said Dave. Thank you for putting the troll back in the box.

Shots Fired

What a grand statement showing the utmost insight and final recognition of the importance ahead of us all. I never thought I would live long enough to actually see the disaster we face today, but I have, and I know just how Thomas Paine felt at that moment. Long live the republic, and I know how important my small vote is. Thank you for your vision. @concealedcarr13
