When I first received this topic I thought, “Yes, this has been a controversial topic for a very long time, but why write about it now with so many other things going on in our nation that are much more important to focus on.” Then, I began to think about what my thoughts have been on this topic throughout my life.
As a young man, it was natural for me to believe that for the exact same reasons that I felt no one had the right to murder unborn babies, nobody had a right to murder any human being. I thought that as long as they were put in a cell with no luxuries, no radio, TV, weight rooms, or reading materials, and to treat them as convicted murderers, rapists etc. was enough. However, I then joined the military, and began to gain experience and grow up a lot more, and as I began to see and experience the evil that was happening all around the world, the unspeakable evil being committed by all kinds of human beings, such as, stoning women because they were raped, molesting children because their society says it is okay to marry a 9-year-old, mutilating women to take away their ability to feel pleasure, throwing people off of buildings because they were gay, torturing others for believing differently than dictators like Saddam Hussain, who put people through meat grinders alive to feed his palace gold fish, or tying his army officers to scud missiles and firing them off because they got grid coordinates mixed up. Then, of course, there are the horrors here in our country. Reading reports about racism, dragging a man to his death by tying him to a truck, or the mass murderers and serial killers, the examples are beyond belief.
At some point, the light bulb went off. I realized that there is a huge difference between killing, torturing, an innocent helpless person by ripping off their arms, legs, torso, etc., from killing a guilty person by humanly hanging, shooting, or injection till dead, so that no one else will be hurt by them, making America safer; is a huge difference. So today I personally believe:
1. Killing the unborn person is evil, wrong, inhumane and a practice that should be condemned and stopped.
2. Evil humans who mass or serial murder, torture, molest children or treason against this nation should be humanely put to death.
3. Rapists should be castrated.
3. All cases and evidence must be 100% verified, beyond any doubt, and not use hearsay or be biasedly persecuted, every precaution must be taken to prevent an innocent person from receiving the death penalty.
4. Prisons need to be a deterrent to society, a place that is not good to be in, no radios, no TVs, no college careers, no weight rooms, etc., a place that has an 8-hour workday, rehabilitation through the development of self discipline, with privileges earned and a positive building of character, and productive personhood created.
When concerning prisons, rehabilitation, and capital punishment, this is where we ought to be in our nation today. Sure, there are many other details that could be discussed for each of the above points, however, I think it is important to discuss some more current events in relation to the subject matter of capital punishment.
My first inclination was to discuss the treason that so many have ignored over the past 10 years from those who are indeed above the law, like Hillary Clinton and others, but until we have the FBI, CIA, and Congress gain back their integrity, this continues to be a moot point that only further divides the unwilling and ignorant to the truth from those crying for justice. However, I did find that the Department of Justice put out a press release on July 25th of this year, stating that the federal government has directed the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to resume capital punishment, after a 20-year lapse of doing so. In addition, Attorney General William Barr directed the acting director of BOP to schedule the execution of 5 death row inmates convicted of murdering, torturing, and raping children and elderly citizens.

These five inmates are: white supremacist, Daniel Lewis Lee, who put plastic bags over the heads, duct taped them, weighted them down with rocks, and threw a family of 3 into the Illinois bayou to their deaths; a Native American, Lezmond Mitchell, who stabbed to death a 63-year-old grandmother, then forced her 9-year old granddaughter to sit next to her lifeless body for a 40 mile drive, then Mitchell slit the little girl’s throat, then collapsed her skull in with 20 lb rocks before cutting off both her and her grandmothers feet, hands and heads, and burying them in the woods; a white Kansas City man, Wesley Ira Purkey, who violently raped and murdered a 16-year-old girl, then dismembered her, and dumped her body in a septic pond. He was also convicted of using a claw hammer to rip apart an 80-year-old woman’s head, who suffered from Polio and walked with a cane; a black man, Alfred Bourgeois, who physically and emotionally tortured, sexually molested, and beat to death his 2 ½-year-old daughter, then bragged about it to others, which was what got him arrested, and finally, a white Iowa man, Dustin Lee Honken, who shot and killed 5 people, who all planned to testify against him on numerous offenses, two men, a working mother, and her 10-year-old and 6-year-old daughters.
These 5 death row inmates, deserve to be put to death for the evils they committed, that is the only way we can give justice to all of those who cannot be brought back to life. I am glad this current Department of Justice has put back into motion capital punishment. It is our job as We The People, the authority of this country, to ensure convictions are legit and accurate, in keeping America safe.

"Charlie Mike" (Continue the Mission): An Introduction

Hello my Brother and Sister Patriots and War-fighters, my name is Gregg C. Cummings, and I will be sharing with you my strong perspectives on our patriotism, our sovereignty, and our condition of readiness. I developed this website to do just that, to hear from the perspectives of veterans, and well-seasoned patriots on issues of the day, as well as life after active duty, but before we dive into those details, I need to tell you a little more about me. I was born to understand the love for my country, not just because school said we should be proud, but because I grew up feeling “America” physically, and spiritually through nature, from living on campgrounds that my father managed. Experiencing the “Great American Experiment”, which surrounded every aspect of my life. My father, a WWII, Korean War and Vietnam Veteran, was definitely a personal hero to me as a child. I was camping at a very young age, making homemade bows, arrows, and spears, and running wild in the woods with my brothers before the age ten. We raised horses, hogs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, sheep and working hard alongside my brothers in it all. I joined the boy scouts and became a star scout before it was over. Then because I stuttered as a kid, fighting all the time was a norm for me, so my dad signed me up at a boxing gym to learn how to fight so I would not fall short as often. Watching my very traditional American mother struggle through the years after their divorce gave me a great respect for women in general for the hardships they have faced throughout history and still face today. Joining the military right out of high school I became a small arms specialist, a paratrooper, then became an engineer. During my military career I graduated from numerous combat-oriented trainings, and became a Ranger, Air Assault, Jump Master, and Rappel Master to name a few, and was an Instructor for Air Assault school, and Rappel Master School, as well as a Pre-Ranger Course, and served in real world theaters in Honduras on the Nicaraguan border, in the sands of Iraq and the Island of Haiti. Having duty stations in Ft Benning, GA, Stuttgart Germany, and Ft Bragg N.C. After the military, I finished my schooling with a degree in Sociology. I worked as a family counselor for a little while and a Police Officer for quite some time before jumping right into politics when the Tea Party Movement was triggered throughout the land. I founded We The People Tea Party of Southern Iowa, co-founded the Iowa Grassroots Coalition, and also worked nationally with both Strong America Now and the Tea Party Patriots. More recently, I co-founded and am the Vice President of the US First Defense Coalition, which brings together for the first time many border sheriffs and border citizen rancher coalitions, Angel Moms, as well as voices from the Border Patrol and other law enforcement agencies, into this single communication strength, that gives America a message, a place to go to for real reports, news and statistics, away from the fake and twisted news from the main stream media and congress. You will find this organization under the USFDC tab above. Now, I am consulting for some good companies and political advocacy organizations, such as, Patriot Mission out of Florida, who works with transitioning veterans who want to become entrepreneurs, and also with Vortex Blockchain Technologies out of Des Moines, Iowa, who are developing a one of a kind blockchain voting machines that are so needed and far overdue in our free Republic. So, because I have experience and networks of these focused demographics of Grassroot Americans, Law Enforcement, EMS and Military Veterans, I saw a need to launch this website and in a couple of months, a YouTube channel that will work hand and hand together. The opportunity, need and timing is now, and it is essential for the American society to truly wake up, listen to the voices of those who have sacrificed, so We The People can feed the equal justice needed to achieve our individual pursuit of happiness, as Americans, not as a skin color, not as a class, not as a hyphen, not as a gender, and not divided by sectoring each other away from one another in the name of diversity, but instead to unite each other by melting into one Nation, one People, in the name of university; E Pluribus Unum (from the many, one). Langston Hughes, the famous poet said it best, when he said, “America, the land that never has been, yet, but yet, must be.”He wasn’t trying to dismantle the American dream by those words, but to embrace it by recognizing the importance of what that dream actually is, which later Martin Luther King Jr., gave us a speech to that vision as well. Here is our Mission: To create an absolute, We The People network system, dedicated to Truth, Education, and Products with a seal of approval that everyone can trust.Not out to get rich, but to provide the resources available, so that Americans can prepare themselves before God, country, and family. To make available first-hand information and news straight from the sources themselves. To give resources and “how-to’s”, so the people can educate themselves about our duty to E Pluribus Unum, as citizens of this great Republic. The Columns: I assessed and reached out to key individuals from each of those demographics mentioned above, so they can talk about vital issues within America today from their individual perspectives and expertise, which we all can learn from, and use to debate and grow our Republic back to a healthy standing and beyond. My column will be called “Continue the Mission”, using the same title as this website. This blog is my messages to the world and to all of our great American Citizens, on many topics of discussion. You can expect my opinion, beliefs, and commitments to the oaths I gave on two separate occasions in my life. I will be straight forward, using a whole lot of candor on my positions and strong suggestions that the American people ought to behoove. For the civilian sector, that means your duty, and responsibility to do something. It is incumbent on you to stay engaged and keep our Republic alive and well. Make sure you check out all future articles, from all of our blogs, subscribe to them and reply to each, with your inputs, questions, and start being “E Pluribus Unum”. Strive to unite under our Star Spangled Banner to stay free; as an American Citizen, you must, “Charlie Mike” (Continue the Mission).
