George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation October 3, 1789
November 24, 2021

Many thanks to Danny at Deep South Homestead for his podcast on George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation of October 3, 1789. 

After reading this profound and yet succinct declaration it is indeed sobering to realize just to what depths that These United States have fallen. It is God who gives us our sustenance. It is God who for so many years has rendered mercy for a sometimes stiff necked people. And because where the Lord is, there is liberty:

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.”

2 Corinthians 3:17 KJV

Please prayerfully consider what God has done for you, your family, your community and your nation before you enjoy the bounty of a Thanksgiving meal. Please pray for those that have no one and no where to go. Pray for the disabled/special needs as in my experience many who live in institutions have -no one- who will come to see them on America’s holiday. Give special thanks to God and to our servicemen and servicewomen who have protected our country since its inception. Please also prayerfully consider below George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation of October 3, 1789 as you literally ‘give thanks’:

A Judge Stands up to a Hospital: “Step Aside” and Give a Dying Man Ivermectin
November 23, 2021
Sun Ng, a retired contractor from Hong Kong, traveled to Illinois to celebrate his only granddaughter’s first birthday. He got covid and was near death in a Chicago-area hospital. All other options were exhausted, but the hospital refused to give Mr. Ng a generic, FDA-approved drug with an extraordinary safety record that a doctor believed could safe his life.
Finally, a judge asked the right question about ivermectin.


“What’s the downside?”


Put another way: If a man is dying of covid in an ICU and all else has been tried, why not order a hospital to give a safe, last-ditch drug?


Edward Hospital, located near Chicago, offered three arguments as to why Sun Ng, seventy-one, should not be given ivermectin:


There could be side effects.


Ordering ivermectin would violate its policies.


Forcing the issue would be “extraordinary” judicial overreach.


On each argument, DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Paul Fullerton firmly disagreed.
