Trump, the Lying Media, and “Christian” Marxism

by Al Benson Jr.

Today (2/16) I watched a news conference given by Donald Trump. Confronted by a whole hoard of mostly hostile media carnivores, Mr. Trump managed to hold his own and even get in a few licks. He didn’t take any baloney from them and even threw back a couple questions at them that none of them dared answer. The vitriolic attitude of what passes for the “news” media was never more apparent and Mr. Trump told them, right out, at one point,  that “No one  believes you anymore.” I must say it was quite refreshing to see someone tell the prostitute press off. It has been decades coming, and they don’t like it. Maybe we should see about reserving  a crying room in the basement of the Washington Post for them.

Trump asked the media people right out, where they were getting all the classified information about what was going on in his administration, information no one is supposed to be aware of, yet they are reporting their skewed version of it on TV and in news articles. Obviously there seems to be someone in Mr. Trump’s administration that is playing Brutus to his Caesar, which, given the Shadow Government’s desire to destroy his administration, should surprise no one. Whoever this person or persons is,  they need to be given the boot and sent back to crawl under their Leftist rocks along with Obama’s Organizing for Action and other Far Left radical groups, many of which are funded by George Soros.

For those of you that think you have seen the last of the Clintons and Comrade Obama, disabuse yourselves of that silly notion right now. Those people mean to rule us, whether we want them or not, by hook or by crook (and knowing the Clintons it will be mostly “crook”).

There was an article on http://www.lewrockwell.com this morning, written by Joseph Smith that originally appeared in American Thinker. Mr. Smith has observed that: “Persistent rumors of Hillary Clinton’s 2020 presidential aspirations are not sitting well with the left-wing media. Matt Latimer claims he can prove that Hillary is ‘running again’:  And the facts are clear that the former secretary of state is doing everything she needs to do to run for the White House one more time. If she finds a path to do so, she will take it…” And he noted some of Latimer’s commentary: “Most defeated rivals disappear after their loss. Instead, Clinton sounded very much like she was still on the campaign trail. (Because, of course, she is.)…Clinton is not going to spend the rest of her life haunted by the question of ‘what if?’ What if I could run again– and win? Besides,  seeking the White House has been her aspiration for decades. What else is there for her to do? Yet, barring some calamity, Clinton is running.” And besides, who else will give Obama the third term he’d dearly love to have (and would have seized if he thought he could get away with it). For some reason, George Soros, who pulls his marionette strings, wouldn’t let him, but like Hillary, unfortunately, he hasn’t gone away either. He is sitting two miles from the White House, doing as much damage to the Trump presidency as he possibly can. Mark my words, the American public is yet going to have to deal with this loathsome pair again unless the Lord intervenes.

On top of all this Leftist garbage still floating down the Potomac,  we have another article, also from http://www.lewrockwell.com authored by Christopher Manion, the title of which was Do Catholic Bishops Miss Obama?  You might as well ask if the Pope was Catholic–the answer to both questions would be the same. Mr. Manion, who is Roman Catholic, knows where the Catholic Church is coming from, at least at the leadership level, and he exposes that quite plainly. He noted that: “Donald Trump has scared the devil out of America’s Catholic bishops. They have supported the Democratic agenda for so long–global warming, amnesty, raising the minimum wage, and national health care–that they can’t seem to let go…Given Trump’s reversal of Obama’s pernicious policies, why aren’t Catholic bishops cheering? Why haven’t they told the faithful and the public that at last we have a president who defends the rights of the unborn, who defies the United Nations bureaucrats, global warming and population control, andd who will put families and not bureaucrats back in charge of their children’s schools? In various ways I have asked countless bishops this question, and none of them will answer.” What does that tell you about the Catholic bishops? It should tell you something, if you still have the ability to think. How many of them really care about the rights of the unborn–if those rights happen to get in the way of an Obama or Clinton agenda? Catholic folks need to start asking their bishops these questions, and expecting coherent answers from them instead of theological gobbledygook.

Years ago I recall talking to a Presbyterian missionary in South America. While down there he came into contact with lots of Catholic priests in the area he was in and he observed that, although they were personally sociable to him, “They were all Marxists.” And lest anyone think I am picking on the Roman Catholics, there are lots of Evangelical Protestants that fall into this same category, some without even realizing it. But some do. The Christian Church, whether it realizes it or not, has a Leftist problem it is going to have to deal with some day.

Mr. Trump has people in his administration that he will have to deal with because they are not there to advance his agenda but are rather there to promote the program of the Shadow Government at the expense of his agenda. And the Church has the same problem,  with some in it who would rather point people to the tenets of Marxism than to the Sermon on the Mount–and the Church will, at some point, have to deal with that and expose it.

Trump Beginning to Find Out How Really Entrenched “Deep State” Is

by Al Benson Jr.

Now that he has assumed the office of President and is actually trying to fulfill the promises he made to the American people (something most politicians never do) Donald Trump is beginning to find out just how deeply entrenched the “deep  state” or the “shadow government” or whatever you care to call it, really is.

He is finding out that anything that he tries to do to actually help the American people is going to come in for tremendous opposition. He is finding out that his attempts to help ordinary Americans are the absolute last thing most of those in government and those that finance them want to see done. In the previous eight years they had a “president” in there who worked mightily to tear down any and all safeguards the American people had and to reduce us to Third World status–and this was exactly what our “shadow government” really wanted to see done. Now Mr. Trump arrives on the scene  and actually tries to help ordinary Americans. This cannot be allowed to happen. He will undo the work of decades if he is allowed to proceed and so he must be thwarted at every turn. Everything he tries to do to help ordinary folks out and to reduce the federal over-reach in their lives has to be opposed.

This is quite apparent in this situation where the judge has issued a stay on Mr. Trump’s executive order keeping people from seven countries noted for their export of terrorists out of the country. This judge, who seems to be a supporter of the Black Lives Matter group, is seeking to make sure people from those countries  that export their terrorism to us can keep on doing so. Attorneys General for the states of Washington and Minnesota have asked him to intervene and prevent Mr. Trump from trying to keep the terrorists out. They don’t quite say it that way but that’s about what it amounts to. Washington is, shall we say, among the more leftist states and Minnesota is noted for its large Muslim population–and believe me, folks, they are there. I have seen them. I don’t know if Minnesota still does, but they used to get federal money for importing people from Somalia.

I would hope that Mr. Trump is, by now, getting the picture of just how deep his opposition to helping ordinary Americans really is–and much of that opposition comes from within our own government.

The fact that Mr. Trump did so well in the last election is proof that ordinary Americans are finally starting to wake up and realize just how much their own government has been shafting them and how much their own government really hates their guts. Hillary told Marxist truth when she called us all “deplorables.” That’s what she really thinks of most of us, at least those of us who are not rabid socialists, and, unfortunately, lots of those on the Republican side of the aisle feel the same way.

Initially, I was not a big fan of Trump’s. However, when I looked at all the people, from radical leftists to the Establishment figures that finance the radical leftists, to the so-called “respectable” conservatives that all hated him, my first thought was “This guy must be doing something right because all the ‘right’ people hate him.”

Mr. Trump is going to find out, as he goes along, if he hasn’t already figured it out, that from day one, he will face intense (and usually not fair) opposition to everything he tries to do. The cultural Marxists in government, the media, in adademia an everyplace in between will spend their full time for the next four years working to undermine his program to give ordinary folks a break. Because you see, at root, they don’t want ordinary folks to get a break. They hate the middle class and like all good Marxists, they will  work  to destroy it. They hate white, Christian Americans with a passion because they are white and Christian and their agenda is to destroy us. If that seems extreme then get used to it. It is. But it is also the truth!

The “shadow government” wants our culture gone and the best way to promote that is to make sure lots of people from alien cultures are allowed in here to adulterate our culture. Even the Christians should have figured this out by now, when some of them are taking the crosses off their churches so as not to “offend” Muslims. It would seem that the tentacles of the “shadow government” also reach into the Church. And they also reach into education, but don’t get me started on that one tonight!

Trump and his administration will have to literally fight for every inch of ground they intend to occupy because the “shadow government” is not about to make it easy for them. They are already looking to get rid of Trump–any way they can, because what his is trying to do will help us and set their agenda back and that can’t be permitted. Giving the American people an even break cannot be allowed!

And The Leftists Retreat To Their Gun Free Crying Rooms!

by Al Benson Jr.

With great interest and amazement as to the amount of outright Leftist hypocrisy displayed, I have watched the paranoid political gyrations of the New World Order crowd as they mentally struggle to process the fact of a Trump presidency. For people that are supposed to be so completely assured and in control of their multi-cultural universe they are not handling this very well. In fact, they are grossly guilty of the political prevarication they would accuse us of had they won the day and enthroned Queen Hitlery in what has already, thanks to Comrade Obama, become known as the Red House instead of  the White House. And, truth be told, they would rather change it to the Red House because, after all, calling it the White House sounds oh so “racist.”

I have watched a couple videos of Trump’s inaugural speech, where he promotes the America First position and interspersed between his comments are remarks by Henry Kissinger, Al Gore, George Bush and others, all expressing support for the New World Order. This crowd realizes that, with Trump in office, their plan for a One World Government has suffered a severe setback and they are slightly less than enthralled. Poor babies! Doesn’t it just make your heart bleed? Can’t you “feel their pain?”

I just read an article where Madonna said she had thought about blowing up the White House (pardon me, I meant Red House).  Now if someone in the Tea Party had dared to make a statement like that they would have been hauled off to the slammer and locked up for 99 years and the key thrown away, but because some wannabe Leftist has-been singer made the statement, the fake news media will just ignore it. How typical of the fake news media!

One good thing to come out of all this myopic anti-Trump hysteria has been the fact that what has passed as the “news” media for decades now has been thoroughly exposed for the frauds they really are and few people trust them anymore. And why should they? Those people do not report the news. The news happens, and they are told what spin to put on it, and being the good little journalistic prostitutes they are, that’s exactly what they do. They have no more concern about real news than the Man in the Moon has over an extra helping of Green Cheese. Anyone labeling them the “fake news media is right on the money. Trump called it when he said, in his first news conference, to the “reporter” from CNN “I won’t give you a question. You are fake news.” Bullseye!

And he also called it in his inauguration speech, when he said that the country’s political elite, some of whom were sitting on the platform near him, had made sure they took care of themselves (and their cronies),  making sure they got the gold mine while the American people got the shaft.

The “news” commentators, after his speech, carried on about how Trump had not been very charitable toward his adversaries. Well, why should he be? They’ve been trying to cut his political (so far anyway) throat for two years now and have pulled every underhanded trick they could come up with, from “vote recounts” to “Russian hacking”  to try and stop him and, thanks be to God, none of it worked. So why should he “play nice” with them? They are his mortal adversaries, cultural Marxists all. You don’t “play nice” with cultural Marxists. They take that as a sign of weakness and try to exploit it. You play hardball with them because they will kill you if they can, and not just journalistically.

I talked with a Christian pastor this morning. He said the country didn’t realize how close to the end of  the road it came with Hillary.  He said if she had gotten in it would only have been a matter of time until many of us were arrested. He said that, now, with Trump having a different outlook, maybe some in the Church will start to stand up and defend what they should defend instead of just sitting silently in the corner in their churches and “praying for Obama.” That’s not to say we shouldn’t pray for Trump. We should–because he has an impressive array of adversaries out there and he needs our prayers–and God’s protection. The hard Left marionettes and their New World Order puppeteers will continue to go after him and his agenda with even greater vehemence now that they have lost the initial rounds.

The professional protesters that got paid to travel around the country and protest anything that Trump said or did can now repair to their crying rooms at various “little ivy-covered North Koreas” we are still foolish enough to call colleges, because the pay days are probably over. Who knows, maybe some of them might even be moved to go out and find honest work–but don’t expect that of too many of them. Most will sit back in awe of their Marxist professors and hope for more Trump protest ops.  However, it is a rare treat to watch the Left squirm, partly because it prevents them from looking down their long collectivist noses at the rest of us who don’t care to share in Marx’s vision of the “brave new world” they had planned for us. In fact, as time goes on, even more us us might learn to fight back and expose their insanity. And that will really give them a severe case of the warm fuzzies!

The Establishment Declares Guerilla Warfare Against Trump Administration

by Al Benson Jr.

The conclusion I reached regarding my heading for this brief article has more than been borne out in recent days. Usually when a sitting president hands over the reins of power to his successor the custom has been for him to quietly withdraw and go do something else, write his memoirs or dedicate his memorial library, or whatever “something else” might be.

But that is not to be the case with our current Marxist president. He has already informed us that he “isn’t going anywhere” but will stay in Washington to keep his finger on the pulse of current events. Which means he is going to be second guessing everything that Trump does, and he realizes that a compliant and prostituted “news” media will daily report his running commentary about how poorly Trump is doing things to the public. So Trump will be fighting on two fronts at all times.

I don’t doubt that Obama would have loved to have left Washington and gone somewhere where he could play golf 14 hours a day, eight days a week. But it would seem that his bosses in our Ruling Establishment plan to keep him chained to Sodom on the Potomac so he can do their bidding there.

And we also hear about some Democrats that are planning on starting up a “war room” to combat Trump at every possible opportunity and to start training a new cadre of young socialists to be prepared for when the Establishment manages to get rid of Trump. Honestly, folks, have you ever seen a post-election scenario like this one? I’ve been following the political scene for over 45 years now and this is a first for me. It is being admitted flat out that the losers are not going to accept their loss but are instead going to continue their blatant Leftist assault from the sidelines.Sort of makes you curious as to where some of George Soros’ money will be spent in the next four years.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Mr. Trump has many of these Establishment types in his own party and you can be sure they will work with the “Demoncrats” because when it comes to the Ruling Establishment, the Deep State, or whatever you care to call the CFR/Trilateral hacks that will be doing this dirty stuff, party labels make no difference. “Republicrats” or “Demoncrats”, they all belong to the same New World Order crowd.

One thing the American people need to realize is that when the New World Order people declare guerilla war on Trump and his administration they are also declaring it on us!

They realize the public at large knows they’ve been shafted by them and that’s why so many voted for Trump–because he promised them an administration that would cease sticking it to them. Only problem is “those people” don’t want to cease sticking it to us. They enjoy it! The cultural Marxist mentality is one the enjoys pulling the wings off flies and the legs off frogs. It gives them a power trip and they like how that feels–so they want to keep doing it to us, and besides, lots of their friends make money off of it one way or another.

They want us to know that they are the “god” in Washington and it really ticks them off when we fight back. So they’ve got to double down and stick it to us to show us who’s boss. When Hitlery called us all “deplorable” she was being honest for one of the few times in her life. That’s how they think of us. Am I advocating that we fear those people? NO! If anything we should oppose and expose them because “gods” they are not, except in their own minds!

So keep your eyes and ears open in the days to come because the New World Order boys (and girls) in Washington are really going to try to neutralize any and every good thing Trump tries to do and they are going to try to neutralize anything whatever that might give the ordinary man a shot at a little more liberty than he now has.Those people don’t like liberty–especially for us–they want us in bondage–and they will do whatever they have to in order to make sure we stay there. That’s the cultural Marxist mindset and we had better understand that. Whether you always agree with Alex Jones or not, he says one thing at the end of his broadcasts that we should think about–“You are the resistance.” He’s right.

Hillary The Cultural Marxist

by Al Benson Jr.

One thing I have often stated in the last year is that the cultural Marxists do not quit. When they have an agenda they pursue it with a vehemence you wouldn’t believe. They let nothing get in their way, or no one. For them the agenda, whatever it might be, is their version of Holy Writ and their deity is the author of that false holy writ, whether they even realize that or not.

During the debates Hillary made the statement that “Anyone who doesn’t accept the results of the election is a direct threat to our democracy” or words to that effect. This country, so we have been told, is a representative Republic, not a democracy. Does Hillary know the difference? Does she hope we don’t know the difference? Now she finds herself questioning the results of the election, her and Ms. Stein both, and so I guess we could, based on her past remarks, consider her and Ms. Stein to be direct threats to “democracy.” But then we have to remember that this is “Hillary the unindicted” that we are talking about and the rules that apply to the rest of us she is exempt from. Hold that thought.

In relation to the upcoming vote recount in three states, we were informed today, via http://www.pbs.org that “Nearly three weeks after Election Day, Michigan officials certified Monday that Donald Trump won the state by 10,704 votes… Regarding the recount the same article noted: “Should the results for Trump hold in all three states, as expected, the president-elect would have 306 electoral votes to 232 for Democrat Hillary Clinton. It takes 270 to be elected president.” Almost no one figures that the results will be overturned in all three states…In Pennsylvania, where Trump edged Clinton by about 71,000 votes, or about 1 percent of the vote, Stein filed a lawsuit seeking a statewide recount but it wasn’t clear if the courts had the authority to order one Democratic Secretary of State Pedro Cortes said there was no evidence of voting irregularities or cyberattacks on Pennsylvania’s voting machines, 96% of which record votes electronically and leave no paper trail.”

Another site, http://statisticalideas.blogspot.com observed that “Michigan is a paper-ballot state (no equipment hacking possible0 so electronic fraud is virtually unlikely to come about.” But Stein will try to make them recount all those paper ballots over that they just finished with. However, some more astute folks are looking beyond the vague possibility of Hillary overturning any of these states so she can seize the presidency and are looking at other reasons for this recount and no matter what some say, lots of folks don’t doubt for a minute that Stein is little more than Hillary’s foil to get her back into the game because, after all, the agenda was supposed to be that she be the next president. The Bilderbergers and other New World Order groups has thus ordained and so it was to be, except that this time, by God’s grace, they were not quite able to pull it off.

One commentator, noting all this, said: “I think the point is to create uncertainly so that the ELECTORS from those 3 states cannot vote on electoral college vote day (December 19, or December 13 when they have to be certified)… Trump now doesn’t   have enough electors to win.”

Another site, http://www.fury.news cuts to the chase when writer Prissy Holly says: “Even though the election is over, the Democrats aren’t giving up in their efforts to steal the presidency from Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton has just joined Jill Stein’s effort to overturn the Trump win and the recount starts today…In order for Trump to be declared as the finalized winner of the presidential race, all electoral votes must be validated by the states by the December  19 deadline, But if those states are having to recount the millions of votes by hand, which is the stated plan, then these states could easily miss the deadline, which would then nullify the electoral votes previously calculated…Writer Thomas Wictor tweeted: ‘You’re letting them distract you. IT ISN’T THE VOTES. The goal is to nullify the electoral votes by making the states miss the deadline.’  If Democrats fail in pulling off their scheme with the recount, there’s a much more sinister plan in place for Hillary’s long game. According to a source close to Hillary, her goal with the recount is to undermine the legitimacy of Trump’s election, in order to keep her options open for 2020.” 

So that may well be where it’s at. If Trump has a one-term presidency that’s under a cloud then that makes Hillary look like the “champion of the people to the rescue” in 2020. Although you have to wonder, as lousy as she was obviously feeling a few weeks ago where her staff were literally carrying her out to her vehicle after a speech, if she will be physically up to all that in 2020. Of course we realize she’s just a front person for the oligarchs anyway, but her agenda calls for her to be president–no matter what.

If Mr. Trump was feeling any sympathy for her after the election by not wanting to prosecute her for all she’s done, he’d better learn to disabuse himself of such sentimentality right quick because, if the truth were known, she’d cut his political throat in a heartbeat and never even think twice about it. In fact, that seems to be what she’s attempting to do right now.

Fight for your presidency Mr. Trump, because the New World Order will be trying to undo everything good that you want to do every day you are in office.

 

On The Other Hand, Maybe I Wasn’t Wrong!

by Al Benson Jr.

Those who have followed my recent columns on either of my blogs know that I have recently questioned some of those that Donald Trump seems to be nominating for various cabinet positions in his hoped-for new administration. Although he has made a couple good choices, I also feel he has made a couple not-so-good choices, or at least is about to. Mitt Romney would be a horrendous pick for Secretary of State and Nikki Haley is a horrendous choice for any position. However, if those on the liberal/Marxist left manage to get their way all my concerns may turn out to be academic, as Trump may well have the election stolen from him and the Bilderbergers may yet be able to enthrone Comrade Hillary as their president of choice.

Whatever vote fraud has turned up thus far has consisted of voting machines in various places being programmed to record votes for Hillary no matter who you voted for. And now that Trump has won the election in a rather resounding victory it seems that, over two weeks after the election problems are suddenly starting to turn up. I guess the election results were so devastating to the cultural Marxists among the Democratic/Republican Elite that it took them until now to find some way to reverse what happened. Do I think the American voters will be shafted yet one more time? Only someone with a suspicious mind would ever feel that way, right?

A headline on http://www.lawnewz.com on November 16th noted that “Election experts” reportedly contacted the Clinton Camp and told them to consider contesting the election results. And, although the Clinton Camp has not officially done this, they seem to have a willing surrogate in Jill Stein, who ran for president on the Green Party ticket  and garnered about 1% of the vote. Ms. Stein has now stepped forward and is in the process of raising millions of dollars, some say about $6 million so far, to pay for filing to get the votes recounted in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Supposedly these “election experts” have determined that, though no election fraud has shown up, they can see certain “anomalies” in the voting patterns in those three states, and if the vote totals could somehow be “rearranged” in those three states it would be just enough to hand the election to Hillary. Why what a surprise! Who woulda ever thunk it?

I wonder if these “election experts” found any problems  with the vote totals in some counties in Nevada, Colorado, and Virginia. Probably not. In an article from World Net Daily that was reproduced on http://www.teaparty.org  it was noted that: “…efforts are underway to challenge the votes in three states won by Clinton: Nevada, Colorado and Virginia. Operation Sabot 2016, launched by the group Oath Keepers is contesting vote totals in Clark County in Nevada; Denver and Boulder Counties in Colorado; and Richmond, Fairfax, and Henrico Counties in Virginia. In all three states there were precincts where over 95% of the vote went to Clinton with voter turnouts above 90%…” But the prostitute press hasn’t said much about that and I guess that this doesn’t qualify as an “anomaly” to the “election experts.”

Trump won 30 states with 306 Electoral College votes to Clinton’s 232. However if the vote totals in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania could be changed then Clinton would end up with 278 votes to Trump’s 260. Interesting that the “election experts only found anomalies in those states that would give Hillary a win and they didn’t seem to find any problems in states where Hillary seemed to win so overwhelmingly in some areas that any sane person would have to question it. Sort of like certain precincts in Ohio giving Obama 108% of the vote back in 2012. No one questioned that so we are supposed to assume that Obama was entitled to 108% of the vote I guess. At least he could have shared the 8% with Romney and just kept the 100% for himself. Marxists are supposed to be all about sharing the wealth, so why not the votes too?

The Tea Party article noted that: “The spoiler aspect of Stein’s recount effort has led critics to dub it Operation Steal.”  Of course we have been duly informed that Ms. Stein’s recount effort is in no way an attempt to help Hillary–she just wants to make sure that truth and justice prevail–you know, “the American way” and all that. But seeing that this recount effort can only help Hillary, you will have to pardon me if I question the purity of all these intentions. I wonder of Ms. Stein’s compulsion to get at the truth would have been as strong if Hillary had won the election. Forgive me if I rather tend to doubt it. And what happens if this recount should happen to turn up more votes for Trump than he previously had? Why then you will never hear about it. That is not news you need to know. You only need to know if it works the other way.

It would be interesting to know where Ms. Stein got all those millions of dollars in such a short time. How come the folks that were willing to put all that money up didn’t turn loose of it during her election bid? Or if they did support her they sure held a batch back. Supposedly such donations can’t come from corporations, they have to come from private parties. Would George Soros be considered a “private party” if he took the money out of his own pocket instead of doing it through one of his front groups? Oh definitely!

When Mr. Trump made the statement during the debates that “the system is rigged” all the elites snickered. Only problem is–the system may well end up being rigged–just not quite the way Trump thought it would be. We all need to keep an eye on this one because I have a feeling that all kinds of interesting stuff is going to happen before we’re finished  and the voting public will probably get stiffed (again) in the process.

If we are going to do a recount in states where Trump narrowly won, then let’s be fair and do the same in states where Hillary narrowly won. And I have read accounts on the Internet that claimed that somewhere around 3 million illegal aliens voted in this election, along with all those continuing voters in grave yards that always seem to resurrect every election day long enough to vote early and often.

All I can say is–if they manage to steal this from Trump–then welcome to the Clinton/Bush Amerikan dream–or should I say nightmare?

Ol’ Newt Finally Fesses Up About The War

by Al Benson Jr.

Over the past several decades I have heard professors from those “little ivy-covered North Koreas” we still charitably refer to as colleges and universities as well as other professional hysterians all loudly shouting that the War of Northern Aggression was fought only to free the slaves in the South. The only cause of that war was slavery, and the professional hysterians have loudly proclaimed that secession was treason and that all Southerners who fought for the Confederacy  should have been hanged as war criminals, and at the least, all of their descendants should be shot–but only after they have repented of the gross sin of slavery–but, maybe on the other hand, they should leave at least a few of them alive to they can continue to repent of and apologize for the sin of slavery. I can remember one excuse for a journalist once writing that “The Civil War was all about slavery, slavery slavery!”

Thankfully, those people’s definition of “sin” is not quite the norm, although they have been working on that problem for the past 150 years now, one of their notable vehicles for promoting that world view being the public schools in Amerika. I’d like to know where in the Holy Scriptures they find slavery condemned as the greatest sin in the world. In the Epistle to Philemon maybe?

Many of those people have made a fat living promoting the fallacy that the South fought the war only to preserve slavery and for no other reason. Now comes along ol’ Newt Gingrich and he up and bursts their bubble with the real story. Newt is supposed to be somewhat of a hysterian (historian) himself. Years ago he produced a set of videos for some educational project he was working on and in one of the videos he reproduced the scene from the movie Gettysburg in which it had Joshua Chamberlain stating that the Union Army was fighting to set other men free and that this was one of the few times in history such had ever happened. Some of you all, if you saw the movie, may remember that. It was hogwash, but you might remember it.

But that was then and this is now. In our present age of “realism” Mr. Gingrich has somewhat changed his tune. Gingrich was recently interviewed by Bill O’Reilly  and the subject of Rahm Emanuel not letting a Trump administration deport illegal aliens who had committed felonies in Chicago came up. Rahm Emanuel is a rather slippery character who is presently the mayor in that fair city and who used to be some sort of advisor to King Barack the First. At that point Gingrich piped up and said: “We fought a civil war to establish one sovereignty, the U.S. government.” You don’t say. So that’s what the War of Northern Aggression was really all about–not freeing the slaves but rather establishing  one centralized, collectivist regime in Washington!  All those folks that have written big books and given long lectures about slavery being the total cause of the war must be hating Gingrich’s guts about now. He has, albeit inadvertently, come out and admitted the real truth. And all their big books can now be shredded up for birdcage liner.

Professor Thomas DiLorenzo, who has some knowledge in this area, caught Gingrich’s comment and duly noted: “So the ‘Civil War’ was fought to abolish the Tenth Amendment after all, and to consolidate all political power in Washington, D.C. Well, Newt, as any Catholic priest would say, it’s never too late to confess.”

Given his mindset, one has to wonder why Newt Gingrich has attached himself to Donald Trump’s campaign when Trump has campaigned as being anti-establishment. Pastor Chuck Baldwin of Montana recently had an article on http://www.lewrockwell.com in which he stated: “Newt Gingrich is a HIGH LEVEL globalist and longtime CFR member. He is the consummate neocon… If Donald Trump does not see through this man, and if he appoints him as a cabinet head in his administration, I will be forced to believe that Donald Trump is clueless about ‘draining the swamp.’ You cannot drain the swamp by putting the very people who filled the swamp back in charge. And that’s exactly what Trump will be doing if he appoints Gingrich to any high-level position in his administration.” Sadly, I have to agree. Of late Trump has been talking with Mitt Romney and Henry Kissinger–and this fact does not bode well for his anti-establishment credentials. Everyone who has a genuine concern about where this country is headed needs to keep an eye on this situation.
