Country music legend Charlie Daniels is a proud American.
He loves his country and he loves his fellow-citizens, which is why he’s worked so hard to give back to the very people who have given him fame and fortune. Daniels is not just a beloved entertainer, he’s also a philanthropist who has donated his time, money, and energy over the last few years and given much back to his fans and those less fortunate than he.
In recent days he’s also felt compelled to comment on our politics and culture because he does have a platform from which to speak. He’s spoken out against former President Obama’s many dangerous power grabs, he’s spoken out against the attacks on the religious beliefs of many Americans, and he’s spoken out in defense of our military and our freedom. Now, he’s speaking out again.
In a recent open letter to Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) who is the leader of Senate Democrats, begging the Senator (and his party) to stop trying to undermine President Trump with lies and false narratives. He’s asking the Democrats to stop playing politics and to start putting their country first.
Here’s the open letter that Charlie Daniels penned on the pages of CNS News:
I don’t live in your constituency, but in the larger picture, you live in mine and every other legal, taxpaying American citizen who is affected by the power you hold in your political party, your blind allegiance to it and the obstructionist posture to anything that doesn’t directly benefit it.
There’s something sinister about seeing you bent over the lectern in the Senate Chamber, your countenance resembling what I would imagine Edgar Allen Poe’s would look like reciting one of his macabre tales of doom and gloom, as if there is not one drop of happiness in your life, forecasting a dismal future for America if anything President Trump proposes passes both houses, is signed and becomes law.
I know you’re disappointed. I know you had the balloons ready to fall and the corks halfway out of the champagne bottles on election night. And I know you just can’t face the truth that what happened in the election was exactly the same thing you continue to do: you forgot about the working people; you forgot about the empty factories of the rust belt; you took for granted the high crime, low employment inner cities you’ve made unkept promises to for decades.
Instead of looking inward at the real cause for your party’s loss, you had to find a scapegoat, and if it hadn’t been Russia, it would have been something else.
Sen. Schumer, will you do me and America a favor? Will you lay your hand on a Holy Bible and tell America that you believe in your heart that Donald Trump has actually colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russian government to the detriment of the United States of America?
You see, sir, everything you’ve come up with so far, and you’ve been at it since well before the election, has been superficial. And I believe that anything your special counsel will come up with will also be superficial, guilt by association, the fires of triviality fanned and proliferated by a tilted, hate-filled media and super partisan politicians.
Sen. Schumer, what goes around truly does come around, and if, or should I say when, this pendulum starts swinging back the other way, do you realize that Mr. Mueller could actually find a lot more dirt on prominent Democrats than they do Trump and his staff?
You have opened Pandora’s Box, sir, and basically thrown away the lid.
Now it’s time to chop the log and let the chips fall where they will.
If President Trump has actually colluded with the Russians or any other foreign government, or sold out my beloved nation in any way, I definitely want to know about it, and if he has, he should be impeached and thrown out of office in disgrace. But right now, you’re a hell of a long way from proving even one iota of your accusations.
Now let’s turn this coin over.
Did or did not Hillary Clinton sign off on allowing a Russian agency to purchase a company holding up to 20 percent of America’s uranium production capacity?
Who leaked the classified information that started this ball rolling? For the investigation to be valid, that has to come out.
Did Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s State department, through incompetence, indifference or both, allow four American citizens to die in Benghazi?
Be careful how you answer this one because the jury and some explosive evidence are still out there, and it all could well be brought to light in a few months.
Did or did not Hillary Clinton, by using an unsecured server and allowing Huma Abedin to email copies to her husband, Anthony Weiner, expose classified documents?
Was there collusion between the Obama administration and the IRS to disallow tax free status to conservative organizations?
If not, why did Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment and retire with full benefits?
You see, sir, Pandora is neither a Democrat nor a Republican, and what is revealed in the coming months could well be a two-edged sword.
Be careful what you wish for.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
