Country-rock star Charlie Daniels: Beware of ‘tipping point’

‘Once we’ve reached it there will be blood’

Country-rock superstar Charlie Daniels, who at 80 years old is still performing, regularly encourages patriotism, faithfulness to the American ideal and support for America’s troops.

He’s also calling out the extremists on both ends of the political spectrum for endangering Americans’ lives.

In a new Soap Box commentary, he warns that both have their radicals, and they are becoming a threat.

“Basically what we are seeing in the streets of America doesn’t resemble mostly peaceful civil rights marches as much as it resembles anarchy, pure and simple, aided by milksop politicians who so fear they might lose a vote, they allow part of the population to run all over the rest of the population, claiming to act in the name of freedom of speech, while half of the free speech in the affected cities is being drowned out by shrill, fanatical voices and the deafening silence of any media to tell their side of the story,” he writes in a piece published Friday.

He said the radicals are taking all the oxygen out of the coverage, referring to the KKK and other white supremacists, and the anti-Trump “Antifa” and their far-left cohorts.

Charlie Daniels Warns Establishment: ‘The Days of the Career Politician Are Over’

Legendary American singer, songwriter, and guitarist Charlie Daniels penned an op-ed this week in which he explains that President Donald Trump is not a member of the “club” of establishment Washington elites whose main goal is power – not public service.

In the op-ed for CNSNews.com, Daniels reflects on the state of American government, industry and culture in the hands of establishment politicians – Republicans and Democrats alike – who, he says, easily obtain “immunity” from their own “crimes and misdemeanors”:

I’ll let you in on a little secret, Donald Trump is not a member of their club either, and while I’m very well aware that his juvenile name-calling and acerbic tweets do not serve him well sometimes, the main problem the establishment has with Donald Trump is not Russia.

Do you think that Chuck Schumer actually thinks that Trump colluded with Russia, had some secret deal that would benefit him to the detriment of America?

I’d be willing to bet my Ram pickup truck against a lug nut that if you hooked Schumer up to a lie detector and asked him that question he’d fail the test.

No, Schumer, the rest of the Democrat attack machine, George Soros, the Barack Obama’s well-financed underground – et al – have known better than to believe that.

Charlie Daniels Offers Solution to Congressional Dysfunction: ‘Replace Them All’

In the wake of another failure by Congress to get a key piece of legislation passed this week, musician Charlie Daniels has a solution to help alleviate government dysfunction — throw them all out.

In a series of tweets this week, the 80-year-old “Devil Went Down to Georgia” musician blasted Congress after the Senate’s failure to advance the Republican-led repeal of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

Daniels specifically called out the Senate, which he termed “a kindergarten class.”

“Ok the congress and senate we have can’t work together and have proven it,” Daniels wrote. “solution – replace them all until we find people who can.”

In another message, the country music star said he wondered what American politics would look like without politics parties: “Then politicians could serve the people instead of the party.”

An Open Letter to the Republican Party by Charlie Daniels

If the new president and the Republican House and Senate will just do what they were elected to do, you have nothing to worry about because the results will be evident and immediate and the American public will be ecstatic about the way they voted.

I have never seen a party so divided win anything, much less the White House, while retaining both houses of Congress, and a preponderance of the state houses.

Many of you don’t deserve this win. Some of you so disliked the party’s presidential candidate that you threatened – and perhaps really did – vote for the opposition. Others chose to remain silent and distanced yourself predicting there would be a catastrophic loss and you didn’t want the residue to splash on you.

Well, the votes have been counted, the win was big, the candidate’s coattails dragged members of the House and Senate to victory, and as usual, the deserters are scurrying to bask in the afterglow.

Let me tell you something, you guys had better get it together real quick and if you’ve got thin skin and weak knees, you might as well stay outside the fray because the Republican Party is getting ready to be under a kind of pressure that has never been exerted and anybody who isn’t prepared to be castigated, lied about and called a hundred different kinds of fools and just keep on keeping on, will get in the way and muddy the water.

Charlie Daniels: First They Disarm You, Then They Control You (Video)

In an exclusive interview given to AR-15 manufacturer Daniel Defense, country music legend Charlie Daniels reminds Americans that disarmament is key to the slide toward totalitarian government.

In other words: first they disarm you, then they control you, Daniels expressed.

The interview opens with Daniels saying:

Some people are willing to lose some freedoms just to maintain their way of life. I’m not. I don’t want to lose my freedoms. I don’t want my freedoms taken away from me. But some people are that way and they are becoming more and more every day.

“Unfortunately I feel the ebb of patriotism again. I can’t believe that we have set back in this country and let things deteriorate to the point that they are,” he added. “And I cannot believe how very unaware about 40 percent of the population of this country are about what is happening.”

A Long, Winding Trail by Charlie Daniels

I usually don’t write about subjects like the one I’m going to broach today, because I, like I know many of you, dislike hearing people “blow their own horn” or brag on their achievements.

Believe me, that boasting is the furthest thing from my mind as I write this. Humility and thankfulness would be more in line with the emotions I’m feeling.

What I’m referring to is the recent announcement that in October of this year I will be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

I have no words to adequately express what I feel in my heart, the surprise I felt when I was informed, the joy, the incredible fact that something I had dared not seriously even hoped for, something that was bestowed upon so few with so many deserving, had been brought into my life with no notice and not even an inkling of rumor.

It was dumbfounding.

The nomination and final selection of the Hall of Fame inductees is probably the most closely held secret in the County Music Association. The voting members are secret and rotate from year to year, the final choices kept completely confidential until the recipients are informed, and even after you are bound to secrecy until a press conference is held to announce the new inductees to the world.

I still have not gotten used to the fact of being member, or will be after October 16. We played the Opry recently and when the announcer, Bill Cody, introduced me as the newest member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, it was almost like, “What did he say?”
