On July Ninth, 1776, 245 years ago today, General George Washington issued an executive order that The Declaration of Independence be read to members of the Continental Army gathered in Manhattan, while thousands of British troops on Staten Island prepared for the Battle of Long Island, which was fought on August 27th, 1776.The Americans lost that battle. It was Washington’s greatest defeat and humiliation in his military career. He even almost lost his own life. However, he learned from that experience and reformulated his military strategy, and ultimately achieved a glorious victory for America in The War of American Independence on September Third, 1783. The War of American Restoration was formally begun in 2016 with the election of Donald J. Trump. Last winter, his reelection was stolen, and today in the United States of America, we literally have a Kleptocracy, which etymologically means “rule by a class of thieves”. Yet, the War of American Restoration is far from over.
