Bradlee Dean Speaks Out For Himself
It’s interesting as I go through and see the things that people have written about me. If my intent has not been misconstrued, then my words have been. How many lies does the media have to tell before the American people come to the conclusion that they are liars? Article after article has been written about me without any facts. In most cases, I have not received any phone calls or e-mails. Facts don't seem to come into their equation when writing their stories…and stories is exactly what they are.
It is oftentimes selective reporting (where they pick and choose wordings and sentences to create their fabricated stories), blatant lies, slanderous, malicious and to be quite honest, hurtful and un-American. And the definition of an “American” is why I write this letter.
What defines an American anyway? Just because you were born here does not make you an “American.” To be an American is to line up with who we are as a people and as a nation. A true American’s job is to uphold, preserve, and defend the Constitutional Republic that our forefathers gave us. That is what our president, our representatives, and our military swear (on the Bible) when they take their oaths of office. George Washington said, "Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society." We are to fight to uphold our pillars as a nation, not tear them down.
Americans are to look out for one another; to watch each other’s backs; and to love one another enough to hold each other to the truth. How foreign this is to those who don’t uphold American values, and you know who they are by the things they write, say, and do, whether ignorantly or intentionally. Are these reporters writing to unite or to divide the American cause?
Freedom of Speech
The state-run media has been taught that to say whatever you want is “freedom of speech.” Not true. Freedom of speech lies within the confines of our “empire of laws,” as president John Adams defined it, not outside of them. In other words, you have the right to say that which promotes freedom and liberty, not lawlessness and an anti-American sentiment. Isn’t that why our forefathers stood against King George? Yes, it is.
How much will the American people tolerate before they figure out that freedom of speech does not destroy, but promotes freedom, liberty, unity and looking out for the other guy? True Americans do not try to destroy one another. Here lies the state-run media’s problem.
As the American people know, I am not offering up my opinion week after week, but rather I am speaking from our two pillars, “religion and morality.” Though I am on national radio, I do weigh myself in the light of my responsibilities before God and man, in which I must stand up and give an account on that final day. This, by the way, is the reason that I do not give my opinion, but rather, the facts. “Facts are stubborn things” - and I am sticking to them, like it or not!
1. Moses and the Ten Commandments are displayed on the top of the Supreme Court building.
2. The Statue of Liberty is rightly named, “Liberty Enlightening the World.” You enlighten the world with truth, and it is the truth that makes us free (John 8:32).
3. The Liberty Bell has Leviticus 25:10 inscribed on it: “And proclaim liberty throughout the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.”
The fact is, this is who we are, and what has been established. Isn’t it something how this seems to get in the way of those who hate the truth?
These reporters apparently believe that they can do whatever they want to do outside of who we are and what we are founded upon, and still be a free people. Thomas Jefferson said, “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free…it expects what never was and never will be.” How foolish!
Why We Are a Great Nation
We are a great nation because our veterans have fought, bled and died to give us liberty as one nation under God, who sent His Son Jesus Christ to make us free. As the saying goes, freedom was not given to do what you want to do, but to do what you ought to do – that’s true grace. This is what is meant by “God shed His grace on thee.” What are you doing with that which was given to you, which came at so costly a sacrifice?
Enough is Enough
As we ponder the awful price of freedom, let me ask you, America, why do you allow these supposed reporters to encourage disarray and an anarchy attitude? The state-run media is being used to promulgate propaganda - the new immoral way instead of the old righteous way (Jeremiah 6:16). They have it backwards and they are guilty of attempting to sink their own boat. In truth, they are enemies to their own people and country.
Instead of them looking to this ministry’s Judeo/Christian/Constitutional message as a lighthouse for safety and solidification, they stay out in the dangerous and tempestuous sea, only to destroy themselves and take down as many as they can with them when the ship goes down.
If you want to see if you are helping the boat (your country) stay afloat or if you are guilty of attempting to sink it, simply read the Bible and your founding documents. You will see the clear correlation so you can know for yourselves where you stand or fall. Then and only then can you make the distinction between those who are lying to you and those who are telling you the truth. Although truth does divide for righteousness’ sake, let that truth and that alone unite us as “We the People,” for it is truth and light that gives us distinction throughout the world. Forget it not. God bless.
And please, if you are one of these reporters that want to write about me, at least know the facts, or contact our ministry first. That way, people will respect you rather than despise you.
