From Our Readers...

Issue Date: January 26, 2022

Dear Editor:

An article entitled "A Word of Warning", published on this page of the Peshtigo Times on Jan. 13, was spot on. It detailed the 8 Steps to Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" in gaining control of a country. The article also defined the step-by-step downfall of Venezuela, "the 3rd richest country in this hemisphere from 1992 forward. A Socialist president was elected in 1992 and the following quickly occurred: Combatting income inequality; health care socialized; private ownership of guns banned; widespread food and health care shortages; and continuing since 2019 unarmed citizens are being massacred by the government; hunger and poverty for the masses is rampant and thousands are fleeing." The Dominion voting machines were developed, initially for Venezuela, with the ability of being manipulated during vote processing, ensuring Chavez would be re-elected repeatedly (for life). Those are the same machines used in our 2020 elections, and Wisconsin officials have said they are continuing to use them in upcoming elections. (Michigan???)

Everyone should dedicate some serious attention and compare this with what we're seeing here daily and what's to come. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are avid followers of Saul Alinsky??Hillary was star-struck when meeting him. She then became n anti-American radical as a young adult, and even more so today. We are now walking through the door of communism, and there are rumblings from East-coast major news sources suggesting Hillary has plans to make another run for president, now that the ground-work has been anchored in place for her; further, there are also some noise growing louder that she may even be replacing Biden in the midst of his term. (Kamala is not favored). Wouldn't be legal, but what do they care?

Historically, millions risked their lives to come here escaping communism (Not like the politically orchestrated invasions now occurring, and with different motives). Others waited months or years, but all came for freedom and opportunities. Now citizens from Blue states are escaping to Red states (primarily Florida and Texas), and their small town populations are feeling crowded.

I've warned for decades we were on the road to where we now find ourselves. People chose to dismiss it as hogwash, didn't want to be bothered, or thought it couldn't happen here, paying more attention to American Idol winners and stats of favorite teams/athletes, than to be concerned about who was going to lead the country into the future??and their possible demise. If you think that subject is bothersome, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Hindsight is always 20/20. Some burned while Nero fiddled.

Changes in church doctrines and sermons have also been ignored or blatantly accepted. I have commented on that for at least 12 years, and pushing for pastors to either preach the Scriptures as written and unaltered or vacate the pulpits. For example, although Scriptures define same-sex lifestyles, as "abominations", saying to love the sinner but hate the sin, the churches lean way too far, taking it to the Marxist level. Similarly, the altering of subjects involving "charity" and "compassion" have been taken first to the degree of ENABLING, then stretched and twisted further??to the level of CONTROL. Marxist-style. You don't think this is happening in your church? It is, in every denomination, from the traditional to the near cultish. The words and phrases used in Scripture are being used to accomplish their motives, but exaggerated in meaning. Why people condone or tolerate paying tithes and offerings to be politically brainwashed without taking appropriate action, I guess I'll never understand. The punishment for those who "add or subtract from" the original meaning of Scripture is clearly stated among the last verses in Revelation.

Students are heavily subjected to this, in being mandated to rely on Marxist-altered internet sources for their "education". Add to that the harm to children in the form of replacing proper education with teaching immorality, alternative lifestyles, critical race theory, and the fear presented in the climate change hoax. The list is almost endless, as promoted by teachers' unions, school admins, and the federal Dept. of Education. Scriptures also warn that is "anyone causes harm to a child, it would be better for that person to have a rock tied around their neck and thrown into the sea". Harm comes in many forms??not just physical. Emotional and mental harm are as damaging, if not more; yet students are receiving it in their "education". Consider the harm to scouting, after Obama mandated gays and lesbians be allowed as troop leaders. Scouting is pretty much extinct, with class-action lawsuits against the organizations.

Rick Steves' travel program describing the beginning and growth of Nazism state-by-stage has aired on PBS many times in the past year or so, appearing as possible warnings. (The Democrat Party's Platform was patterned after the Nazi Party Platform since at least 2012 (using the original working copy, not the watered-down version for public-interest viewing).

Mid-term elections are starting earlier this year, which reminds me that, the last I knew, England doesn't allow political campaigning any earlier out from the election than 6 weeks. Great idea for America!

Letter to Editor:

On 1/18/22 a local paper wrote about the negative effects of wind on our water quality.

We need to keep in mind the wind could cause people, pets and wildlife lung damage, diseases, and possible death if the proposed mine is allowed to operate. We all know fungus grows here. We know spores, mercury, arsenic and other toxic things from the earth can kill us. We know cyanide kills.

Our communities could suffer fatal cases of Blastomyces pneumonia. When earth near water is disturbed, these fungal spores get into the air, and blow to our lungs on the wind. This pneumonia is usually misdiagnosed, causing the delay of proper treatment. A report from Marshfield Labs says about a Wisconsin case: Dust carried by prevailing winds from an excavation site was the source of spores.

Mercury, even small amounts, may cause serious health problems, and is a threat to the development of babies inside mom and early in life. The World Health Organization (WHO) states mercury is toxic to the nervous, digestive and immune systems, kidneys, skin, eyes and on lungs, which can be fatal. Mercury is considered by WHO as one of the top ten chemicals of major public health concern. Human activity is the main cause of mercury releases for example as a result of mining for mercury, gold and other metals.

Lung cancer (mesothelioma) can be caused by inhaling the asbestos-like particles from mining's explosions of earth getting into the air. We can also breathe this in from the dust caused by the crushing of rock containing it. The proposed mine would pulverize rock down to powder. This powder flows with the wind. (This powder also goes into vats with trainloads of cyanide to separate out the gold particles. That contaminated cyanide would be stored in their on-site mountainous earthen dam "forever", with the always acid-generating sulfides, mercury, lead, etc. The style dam they proposed is the most likely to fail, and fails most often world-wide. When such a tailings dam burst in January 2019, its flowing force killed 270 people, most buried alive.)

So, since 100% of sulfide minerals mines cause water pollution that lasts for centuries, we know our surface (river, streams, wetlands, bay, lakes) & well water will be ruined if this mine is permitted and operates. Now we know our air can be dangerous for us too because of mining locally.

Working together with you, we can SAVE our water and our lives from this proposed mine.

Natalie Lashmet,

Dear Editor:

I am a Peshtigo Times subscriber, we have been a subscriber for many years.

I would like to comment on this story;

According to Middle Inlet Town Clerk Patricia Schutte, she stated on January 13th that the Dominion Voting Machines are Not connected to the internet. She is not correct, All Dominion Voting Machines are indeed connected to the internet and all of the votes can be changed and easily manipulated through the internet. 

According to data pulled from the 2020 presidential election, 1,906 votes were flipped in Marinette County by using internet access into the Dominion voting machines. Anyone can access this information by going to thebiglie.frankspeech.com and then clicking on Wisconsin and then clicking on Marinette County Clerk.

In fact, every Dominion Machine in every state and in every county was accessed through the internet and the votes were flipped. If we do not get rid of these Dominion machines, we will never have a fair election again. 

All votes can be changed easily when using the Dominion Voting Machines. All Dominion machines are connected to the internet and all Dominion machines are hacked into and our votes are being changed.

Thank you,

Jeff Casperson



A Long Road Home

We blame each other for our own problems

But the stars and the sun still are shone,

Their message is the only answer

And it's a long road home.



I wish I could tell you what's right or wrong

But I'm only a poet who writes poems,

You'll never find answers if you don't know the questions

And it's a long road home.



We each walk our paths in different directions

Sometimes together, sometimes alone,

But however we get there it's the same destination

And it's a long road home.



Along the path we all will stumble

Over the greed and the stone,

You may cradle both the lamb and fox

But it's a long road home.



The stars still twinkle in the sky

The night may be dark but you're never alone,

Their message is the only answer

And it's a long road home.



Roger Lanich,

Wausaukee
