Uniting America to Fight This Virus


I received an email from the Deputy Associate Director out of the White House, Belsis F. Romero, inviting me to a special conference call Focus on the COVID-19 Virus, with Vice President Pence. I sent my RSVP for the meeting, and Mr. Romero replied right away, sending me the call-in number along with my individual ID code to be part of the meeting.
The call started at 1200hrs on April 2, 2020. Ms. Jennifer Korn, the Deputy Director and Special Assistant to the President hosted the call, and introduced herself, and then told us that the Vice President was also on the line. She thanked us all for being on the call especially on such short notice, and again said, thank you.
Ms. Korn explained that the Vice President wanted to utilize us as part of a strategic plan to do all we can as a nation to combat the Coronavirus Crisis. The conference call included a little over 500+ of some of the top on-the-ground conservative leaders in the country to help communicate and coordinate actions to at least slowdown, and help stop, the spread of this virus. It was at this time that she introduced and then turned over the meeting to the Vice President of the United States,

Mike Pence. He thanked us all for our work over the last decade and showed us respect for the progress which the conservative movement has made in the recent past. He was very specific that they were not making this call, or simply providing the information as a press release, or that the White House was seeking recognition for its COVID-19 response. However, they felt it was necessary to not only use all resources available to the nation but to reach out to grassroots leaders, so they can, in turn, communicate with their network of conservative leaders to be yet another avenue in getting vital information out to all citizens, because of what the media does by not airing the President’s press conferences, as well as the fact that not everyone watches the news. He asked us to encourage our networks and other citizens, and relay the message of what We The People can do to help fight this virus as a united nation.

He talked about starting this month of April as a 30-day focus, if you will, on taking the necessary actions to help everyone with maintaining better health and easing the public’s worries over the virus, doing the things that will gain confidence in the American people, which will aid in calming panic situations. Things like doing everything that we can to maintain social distance, as to not put others in danger of contamination. Do not go anywhere unless you must go to work, the grocery store, or a medical facility, always staying calm for the next 30 days of focus. Vice President Pence stated that the President has sat down with major grocery distributors and got a commitment not to close down as long as we can keep transportation steadily bringing needed supplies. They are working with the trucking industries to deliver to the biggest cities first, where the virus is the strongest and then also continue everywhere else. To do other things, such as going to the supermarket every few days to get 10 items or less each time to make sure stocks are not depleted prior to truckers bringing in future supplies. This will help to prolong any running out of supplies issues for your local communities. Vice President Pence was strongly focused on reminding us to adhere to these suggestions and requests as they will help tremendously in combating this virus.
We keep hearing how important it is to wash our hands, use disinfectant wipes, don’t touch your face, etc., but what is not talked about enough is washing hands for at least 20 seconds. Use soap and scrub well during that timeline of 20 full seconds.

We need to write to our governors and make sure they are doing all they can to unite with the federal government and the American people in eliminating this virus. To drop any and all political differences, as there will always be time for that. Vice President Pence said that the federal government will do all they can, and currently are, but the governors also need to work with all citizens and the federal government to eliminate this virus.
It truly is a shame that the media are so biased that some are not even showing President Trump’s daily press conferences, especially during his opening statements. The American people need to hear what is being done, and the positives to be reported to also calm any tensions that will lead to panic and worse. The Vice President shared about the “air bridges” that have been formed to help the airlines a little while making a priority flight bridge to some of the most critical cities in need of supplies.
Vice President Pence encouraged us to ask all peoples in the country to spread the good news when they find some. Things that show what America is made of, those that are great examples of the American Spirit. For example, when churches volunteer to step up to the plate and service their communities with many great ideas, or the individual who decided to make good home-cooked meals for truckers as they pass through their communities. Actions that will inspire others to do the same, all of which aids in defeating this virus as a united people.
Vice President Pence thanked God, and rightly so, that we are a free-market enterprise because the federal government is releasing and/or ignoring some regulations to keep everything moving. Big companies and corporations have stopped making their products and switched to making masks as well as other medical necessities along with respirators and other greatly needed items.

There is a community in Iowa where a very rich man decided to give a gift card to every member of his community to assist them in these hard times of layoffs and mandatory shutdowns. So many examples of good news happening that the media should be reporting on, instead of using their political biases to stoke panic and hate.
He said to make sure we remind the people to thank the medical professionals- bottom to top. They are not home, they are in the hospitals, staying in order to not risk infecting their families and others. Say a prayer for the nurses, who deal with the worst of it.
Also, reach out to organizations helping the communities, such as all religious groups and churches. The President has been in touch with the religious communities throughout the U.S. as well.
With all of these in mind, we also must consider thanking all those in the service industry, delivering take out, and working all odd hours. Thank all police officers/law enforcement; remember they are in the front lines all the time, and now they need medical donations as well, due to a lot of them have donated their stuff to the hospitals at the beginning, or just simply running out because they are on the streets of our nation 24/7.

So, I ask each of you reading this article, to use your networks to connect with people and push these issues. By doing this, we all are multiplying the amount of Positive American University to combat this virus as One Nation, One People, E Pluribus Unum (from the many one). Call your elected officials at every level and demand they stop creating obstacles for the administration. The President is fighting for all the people of this nation. Calling those leaders at the grassroots level and understanding that they are a unified, yet strategic part of being a united nation of We The People shows just that, we are The United States of America. I am so proud of our Vice President and his task force for taking the initiative to do this.
Vice President Pence finished the meeting by thanking the people on the call for their key roles. He reminded us to not leave any stone unturned when communicating these ideas and spreading the good in America. If you want to see more, please go to https://bit.ly/2wbaFSA

Gregg Cummings: 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).
