Memorial Day

My great-grandfather Ole Olson-Hoel left his family in the Dakota Territory with his brother Simon near Lake Poinsett in 1906. He went with his brother Eston and his family and were joined by a few other families. The Wagon Train grew as they headed for North Dakota.

They tried farming in the Rice Lake area near Rider North Dakota where many died from Scarlet Fever. A cemetery got located on a small hill north east of Rice Lake. Drought conditions and hunger forced them to continue North into Canada. The only land left to Homestead was in Alberta.

Pioneer Cemetery in North Dakota.

The Antillans were Eston’s wife’s parents.

The family settled in a wilderness area north of what became Rocky Mountain House Alberta. Esten Olson died in 1911 and a cemetery got started on John Olson’s land.

Ole’s funeral in 1925.
There were no roads yet, travel was not easy. There was no church building, people met to worship in homes. It appears a picnic was enjoyed at the cemetery.
The Green Valley cemetery got vandalized in the wilderness. The graves remain there

but a monument was later placed in town.

Bipartisan Commissions

From Trump’s first day in office, news he did not like got labeled fake news. This fake news plan continued for four years. He brainwashed his supporters into believing the news media was the enemy and picked on him with fake news. He was preparing them for the big lie if he lost the election to the radical, socialistic democrats. He must have planned all along to declare the election got stolen from him. His lies to divide and conquer the nation should be considered a Treasonous Act.

Treason – Wikipedia

The republican party had the FBI investigate doctor Martin Luther King Jr, and a bipartisan commission was formed in Congress to investigated him for treason and communist activities.

On January 6th, 2021, the nation’s capital got attacked to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. The Republican Party does not want to have a bipartisan commission formed now to investigate that takeover of the nation’s capital.

It looks like we may have already lost our government to radicals who use lies to control all political power. They are committing treason while using their rights of free speech. That is as low as a U.S. politician can go. Some should be tried for treason and lose their citizenships. They pretend to be political public servants. The elected officials who continue to perpetuate the lies are just as guilty as the originator of the BIG LIE.

Power-hungry rulers have used War for centuries to gain status and riches.

In the United States, politicians have sent young people off to War around the world for the sake of freedom. Political reasons and personal gain have also prompted decisions to send troops into harm’s way.

The modern US politician started to use a simple thing called lies to gain and hang onto power. How can a lie be disproved? They are using their right to free speech to destroy the freedom of the nation. That is not a game, it should be considered Treason. The New Age politician doe not want any opposition, he now uses lies and changes laws to hold power.

I would recommend the movie “We Were Soldiers” to all politicians who never served in the military of the United States, or fought to protect our freedom of speech.
