God, Freedom, and Country
On the FrontLine
Hello Patriot Freedom loving folks from The Patriot Drummer Mike. This site is created to help create funds for the ministry of The Patriot Drummer whos mission is to attend as many freedom and Patriot rallies and events as possible to play the drum before the battle. There will also be a website built for event and rally requests, scheduling, information, and a place for folks to share. Do you know about the history of musicians who march before the armies in the our past? And there are biblical scriptures representing the spiritual power in the playing of instruments for marches rallies, and victory celebrations...
“After that you will go to Gibeah of God, where there is a Philistine outpost. As you approach the town, you will meet a procession of prophets coming down from the high place with lyres, tambourines (drums), flutes and harps being played before them, and they will be prophesying.” 1Samuel 10:5,6
“Every stroke the LORD lays on them with his punishing rod will be to the music of the tambourines (drums) and harps, as he fights the battle with the blow of his arm.” Isaiah 30:32
“When the men were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with tambourines (drums) and lutes.” 1 Samuel 18:6
“Then Miriam the prophetess, Aaron’s sister took a tambourine (drum) in her hand, and all the women followed her, with tambourines and dancing.” Exodus 15:20
We are also looking into inviting other musicians and performers to attend assemblies locally and nationally. Funds donated here will be used for purchasing and upkeep of percussion and musical instruments, the website, travel, lodging, A/V and stage equipment if it comes to that.
In 2010 during the reign of Obamas administration I became involved and attended TEA Party rallies and I was very impressed with a Polish immigrant who attended many TEA events in CT. He would dress up in red, white, and blue garb and wave a huge American flag with more conviction and fortitude than anyone I've ever seen. So, I traveled to NY to buy and restoring a vintage Slingerland marching snare drum I found on Ebay. I played it for assemblies and fiscal and social conservative freedom minded political candidates running at the time. I replaced the batter and snare side heads with Remo Falams 2, found a replacement snare tensioner and butt, polished the shell, and resealed the crack in one of the wooden hoops. Sounds great! After CT voted the corrupt left in all the federal offices, and the lack of care with many state citizens, I had put this old drum away for maybe a future revival. But I have faith as I will never give up on state. I believe there will be a political awakening here and in other blue states as time opens the curtain of what the democrats and left wing operations have been producing.
When we were attacked by the Plandemic in 20220, government officials began removing more freedoms and many governors (blue and red states) implemented tyrannical rules with disregard to any constitutional and medical rights. The forcing of small businesses considered "non essential" to lockdown and placing executive authority rules on them such as masking demonstrated that our nation is struggling with very unqualified leaders. After the "2 weeks to flatten the curve" and now with some of these mandates such as muzzling our children in public schools going on 2 years, I began to suspect some serious deception and ineptitude taking place with these various health and government agencies.
In the late spring of 2020 my family drove down to our 2nd home in Florida for a vacation and I took that drum with me to have some percussion available that would fit in the car. We stopped in Savanah, GA for a side trip and my wife and I happened upon a mall souvenir shop by the river park. In the toy section I see this tricorn hat that I mentioned to my wife how it would look if I started attending rallies again in the future and wore that hat. It was 10 bucks and I bought it.
We were on our way back home and staying at a hotel I saw a news report about a diner in PA that was going to defy the governors lockdown orders and open anyways. (muzzles were not yet a big thing) People from all over that area were planning a big rally and patron the establishment to show support thus breaking the executive orders. I thought.. hey.. that's what I want to do. Checking the map the diner was located just a few minutes off our route home going through PA. So we stopped there on that day and I dragged out the drum and put on the hat and joined those who were protesting the lockdowns at the diner. I was scared and reluctant at first, but my wife pushed me into dropping the cowardly act and get out there. So I started just started playing a marching beat and everyone seemed to like it more than I suspected. The owner was impressed and came out to thank me for doing it. About a month later I attended a 2nd Amendment rally in Richmond, VA. I bought a colonial shirt, pants, and socks and attended with the drum. That's when I decided I would join the great God fearing, common sensed, freedom loving patriots in CT. I went to many Trump support rallies for the 2021 election including Stop the Steal events. I am have no problem admitting I was at the January 6th event in Washington, DC and made it up the capitol steps playing that drum as loud as can be thanks to some donations for may travel expenses made by a great patriot group in CT. We just created a website called ThePatriotDrummer.com and will be building upon it as we grow. Feel free to visit, participate, and offer suggestions.
Future plans include events at the state capital, more freedom rallies. Traveling to other freedom assemblies up and down the east coast including my 2nd home in Florida, campaign events, party events, and responding to invitations. I dont charge anything but accept donations. So, if you are able to help after your church offerings (always first), and your charitable offerings for those in need, please consider a contribution to The Patriot Drummer Mike. Thank you and may God bless you and yours. 🥁😎🥁
"Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise Him with the harp and lyre, praise Him with the tambourine (drum) and dancing, praise Him with the strings and flute, praise Him with the clash of cymbals, praise Him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD.” Psalm 150:3-6.
