I don’t know if you believe in signs, but I do. So when I heard that a very badly injured bald eagle had been found wandering the streets of Washington D.C. right before the 4th of July, that definitely got my attention. Today, bald eagles are actually quite rare. There are only about 5,000 nesting pairs in the lower 48 states, and it is especially uncommon to spot one in one of our major cities. When I was first told that a bald eagle has been rescued on the streets of our nation’s capital right before the most patriotic day of the year, I was immediately skeptical. But this is actually a true story. The following was reported by NPR

 

Just in time for the Fourth of July, animal rescue workers came to the aid of the national bird — a wounded bald eagle — on the streets of Washington, D.C. on Saturday.

The eagle was unable to fly, seemed lethargic and had labored breathing, the Humane Rescue Alliance posted to Facebook. The cause of the eagle’s injury is unclear.

Matt Williams is with the group and wrote NPR in an email that the bird’s condition appears to be stable and its prognosis “guarded,” meaning it may recover but with lasting complications.

All the way back in 1782 the bald eagle was chosen to be the symbol of our nation. I have even incorporated it into my campaign logo. Other than the American flag, there is probably no other symbol that is more associated with our nation. And it was chosen as our national bird for very specific reasons

The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of America, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent.

On the backs of our gold coins, the silver dollar, the half dollar and the quarter, we see an eagle with outspread wings.

On the Great Seal of the United States and in many places which are exponents of our nation’s authority we see the same emblem.

The eagle represents freedom. Living as he does on the tops of lofty mountains, amid the solitary grandeur of Nature, he has unlimited freedom, whether with strong pinions he sweeps into the valleys below, or upward into the boundless spaces beyond.

So if this injured bald eagle that was rescued in Washington D.C. is a sign, what could it mean?

Well, clearly the bald eagle would represent our nation. And the fact that it is injured would make a lot of sense, because today our Republic is hanging by a thread.

It is probably also not a “coincidence” that this bald eagle was found wandering the streets of our capital city. If there is one city that defines who we are as a people, it is Washington. Could it be possible that God sent this injured bald eagle to Washington as a warning?

If so, what kind of warning would it be?

In the quote above, it was noted that the bald eagle represents freedom. And it was rescued on the eve of the holiday that is specifically set aside to celebrate our liberty and freedom.

But if it is unable to fly, an eagle’s freedom is greatly limited, and that is so true in our nation today.

Instead of protecting our liberties and freedoms as our founders intended, our federal government has become very fond of taking our liberties and freedoms away. Every time a new law is passed or a new government agency is established, our liberties and freedoms are restricted in some way. Today, there are hundreds of thousands of laws on the federal level, and when you throw in state and local governments all over the nation the grand total is in the millions.

We have lived with a big, oppressive government for so long that many of us cannot even imagine living any other way.

But there is a better way, and our founders risked everything to establish such a system. They envisioned a nation that would have a very, very limited central government and where liberty and freedom would be maximized.

Yes, liberty and freedom can be messy. But if you don’t like liberty and freedom, there are lots of other places in the world where the government forces a great deal of uniformity on everyone. We are going down that path as a country right now, and if you want to see where that ultimately leads just go to North Korea.

If you take the time to stop and reflect on these things, it is truly frightening how tightly regulated our society has become. Virtually every single product in your home was configured according to very strict regulations set by the government. If you want to set up a business or hire employees, there are a whole host of rules and regulations that you are going to have to follow. Many structure their entire lives to minimize their income tax burdens, and today the income tax code is more than two million words long. And every single phone call that you make and every single email that you send are being intercepted by the government and stored in massive data centers like the one out in Utah.

I could go on and on for hours, but I think that you get the point.

Our liberties and freedoms are continually being eroded, and if we don’t start swinging the pendulum back in the other direction eventually we are going to end up in the kind of dystopian nightmare that George Orwell portrayed in his novel 1984.

I don’t want my 2-year-old daughter to grow up in such a world, and so if I am successful in my run for Congress I plan to be a wrecking ball in Washington. I plan to tear down and destroy as much of the system as I can, because I want to restore as much liberty and freedom to the American people as possible. But I can’t do this alone, and so I am asking you to prayerfully consider helping me. So far the outpouring of love and support has been very encouraging, and I am so thankful to be connecting with so many other freedom-loving Americans.

Like many of you, for years I was discouraged that things never seemed to change no matter which political party was in power.

But the election of Donald Trump shattered that paradigm.

He was not afraid to take on the entire system, and he showed us that anything is possible.

Like that injured bald eagle on the streets of D.C., I believe that there is still time to rescue this nation.

But we have got to act quickly, because our nation is in extremely bad shape and it is rapidly steamrolling toward disaster.

 
  • Believing in “signs”, or believing that mundane occurrences have supernatural meanings, is a sign of schizophrenia. Witchcraft, paganism, and pre-Israelite cults based their teachings on “signs”, and G-d spoke against it.

    Seriously, this is becoming a struggle to even consider any part of this site serious anymore. The state of the Conservative Right is plummeting.

      This is exactly what I agree with. In other words, I say that you’re right. I don’t know why Michael had a change of prospect all of a sudden. First he was urging us to get prepared, but now he’s encouraging us to become optimistic and save a bankrupt nation with ballots and ideas. Give me a break! I don’t mean to sound doom and gloom, but this faithful philosophy that he’s preaching is phony and dangerous.

      He does have great intentions, but he should not take Trump’s election and stamina at face value. Remember, this country is indefinitely history and imagine all debt crashing down within a year from now before the elections take place. You can’t reverse decades of damage by having a handful of ordinary citizens running for state congress as “conservatives”. The next economic downfall will take place sometime soon and it’s going to make 2008 seem like an amusement fair.

      As for the lucky bald eagle, perhaps it’s merely a coincidence. A lot of times apparent miracles have no major significance and are just a result of luck or other factors.

        He has had a change of prospect because he is now running for congress and wants to put a positive spin on his campaign so he can win that congressional seat. Makes sense, but eventually this country folds into the mass of humanity that will worship “the Beast” in the Tribulation period coming up and Michael knows that. It is inevitable. This Trump administration is a temporary stay of execution, a last ditch effort for American society to change the direction that it is headed in, IMO.

      Believing in signs is okay. What I don’t like is some churches in America have the ultra strict pious types and if you do any little thing like wearing a bright yellow shirt or need a haircut they suspect you might be gay!

      You can’t even sit with your legs crossed because that could raise suspicions you could be gay!

      Some people say the pious mind is a sick mind.

    Because of the rarity of bald eagles in D.C., Imo, this was an eagle which was symbolically, intentionally injured and placed in a public setting, so as to attract attention, either in “hopes” that it would die, or in hopes that it would be rescued and helped. In either case, the wounding of the innocent animal, is so wrong.

    I am all for Freedom and Liberty. It is my heart’s cry. But don’t forget that freedom and liberty come with a price. Responsibility and morality are part of that price. Any attempt to bring freedom and liberty without these is doomed to fail. By God’s grace, we need revival in this land first. Then we will be able to see true freedom and liberty restored.

    I have never been very good at asking for help. My father was an officer in the U.S. Navy, and he raised me to be very strong and very independent. So for my entire life, I have been a “pull myself up by my own bootstraps” kind of guy. From a very early age I came to think of asking others for help as a sign of weakness. Of course today I know that is not true, but there is still part of me that hesitates to enlist the support of others even when I really, really need it.

    But now I have been put into a position where I have no choice but to ask for help. As many of you already know, I am running for Congress, and there is no way in the world that I could ever do that by myself.

    So this is very humbling for me, because I know that if this is not a team effort that I am 100% assured of failing.

    The good news is that a number of my readers have already stepped up to help, and I am so thankful for that. And if you would like to financially support my campaign for Congress, you can do so right here…

    Thankfully, I don’t have to raise enormous amounts of money to be successful. In some areas of the country, candidates for the House of Representatives raise millions of dollars, but in this district candidates for Congress usually only raise a small fraction of that.

    And there is going to be no incumbent in this district in 2018,
    because the individual that is currently holding this seat is running for governor instead. So the race is wide open, and none of my potential opponents is independently wealthy.

    So to win this race, I just need to raise enough money to be on the same playing field as the others. Because we have already been sharing my message with groups of voters, and after hearing my message many voters that were undecided or that were already committed to another candidate are coming over to my side.

    I am going to have the strongest message in this race, and I just need to get it in front of everyone in this district.

    Once again, this is not actually going to take very much. In fact, if every one of my readers were to donate 10 dollars today, I could be done funding my entire campaign by tomorrow…

    Over the past seven years, I have published well over 2000 feature articles, and those of you that have been following my work for an extended period of time know my heart. If you believe in me and what I am doing, then I am asking for your support. I am asking those that want to see me in Congress to show that you are standing with me by donating at least 10 dollars to the campaign.

    Perhaps later you will want to donate more, but right now we are just at the very beginning and we are trying to get things off the ground. This is such a critical stage, and we have got to raise some funds in order to do the basic things that every campaign needs to do.

    And of course 10 dollars is not a lot. Many of you will spend more than that on coffee this week. If you have been blessed by me and by my work all these years, would you consider being a blessing to me by helping in this way?

    I want to take the same message that I have been proclaiming in my books, on my websites, and on radio and television all over America to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. I wouldn’t be going there to “join the club” or to be just another spineless politician.

    Rather, if I win this election I plan to turn over the tables in
    Washington D.C. and I plan to be a wrecking ball to the spirit of
    political correctness.

    So many of us (including me) have complained that we never have anyone good to vote for, and so I am trying to do my part by putting myself way out on a limb. It is kind of scary out here, but I have faith that those that enjoy my work all over the nation will rally behind me.

    In every generation, Americans have had to sacrifice to defend
    liberty and freedom. Thankfully we don’t have to do that will guns and bullets today, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t sacrifices to be made.

    Over the next 10 months, I will be spending hundreds upon hundreds of hours on this campaign. I believe that the most pivotal time in modern American history is ahead of us, and we are going to need leadership in Washington that is going to fight for our values.

    If you would like to read more about where I stand on the issues, you can do so right here…

    But of course most of you all already know my heart. I have put everything that I have into my articles for the past seven years, and those of you that have followed me for a long time already know that I am a fighter.

    But if I try to fight this battle alone, I will lose.

    The only way that I am going to win is if you help me.

    Like I said, I am not accustomed to asking for help like this, so all that I can do is open up my heart and be completely honest.

    I need your help.

    If you would like to donate to the campaign, just follow this link…

    https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

    You can donate by credit card, Paypal or by check if you prefer. We are going to stretch every single dollar as far as it can possibly go, and we are going to fight for every possible vote.

    If you have any questions about any of this, please feel free to reach out to me at Michael@MichaelSnyderForCongress.com.

    Our founders had faith that they could stand up to the mighty British empire, and because of that faith the United States of America exists today.

    Now it is our turn to believe that we can make a difference. If you would be willing to let me know that you stand with me by donating at least 10 dollars to the campaign, that would mean the world to me.

    It is during our times of greatest need that we find out who our real friends are, and I am looking for a few good friends to help me right now.

    Thank you for following my work on a regular basis, and for more information about how you can get involved in this campaign, please check out my official campaign websites…
