““I love you dad…” A teary-eyed Gabriel Vanderwalker, 12, tells his dad, John, after arriving at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport from the Soviet Union, where the children’s Seattle Peace Theater group was supposed to perform before the military coup changed their plans.
The group, consisting of 15 young performers aged 9-13 along with 5 adult guardians, were in Moscow on August 18 during the attempted overthrow of President Mikhail Gorbachev by high-ranking members of the military and Communist Party.
Immediate arrangements were made by the U.S. Embassy to evacuate the children and return them to the United States. Although the coup d’état appeared to be unsuccessful embassy officials were still concerned about the possibility of violence by hardline Communist elements within the Soviet Armed Forces and government. – 8/28/91”
Yesterday we were witness to major history. For those patriots that actually participated, I salute you.
As for VP Pence, I wasn’t very confident that he was going to do the right thing. My suspicions were confirmed. I thought he wouldn’t do it because he was a milquetoast, but it turns out he was just another Washington insider scumbag politician. Well, whatever he got I hope it was enough because his political career is over. He could have been the 46th President.
As for President Trump it looks like it might be coming down to the “Rubicon” option. Will he try it? I believe he will, if he can get the necessary backing from the military. He can’t do it alone. Or maybe I’ve been wrong about what kind of man the president is this whole time. I’ve been wrong about many others. I have a problem judging the character of politicians because I want to believe they’re like us, they are not, but then Trump was never a real politician. Pray for President Trump, and our nation. Time is running short.
For the patriots who will be in Washington DC today, good luck, take care, and may God bless you and keep you safe.
