Bigotry Against White Southerners Is ALWAYS In Season

by Al Benson Jr.

As most honest people realize by now, liberals, socialists, and communists are all cultural Marxists, which means, for them, that it is perfectly permissible to do unto others what they condemn others (usually unrighteously) for doing unto them. In fact, for them, it’s mandatory.  For them, their day is not complete unless they are actively assailing someone on the political or religious Right, while blaming those folks for even daring to defend themselves. “Condemn others and elevate yourself” is their watchword.

I read an interesting article on The Hill by Jacqueline Thomsen for November 12th, 2017, the headline for which was Poll: Nearly half of white Southerners feel like they’re under attack.  All I can say to that is–it’s about time! White Southerners are under attack–and have been now for decades. Their culture, their history, their faith, even their Southern accents, are and have been under assault for longer than I care to think about. Most of them have been totally oblivious to it. It would really be nice if some of  them, lots more of them, were starting to wake up and smell the coffee. It would be really nice to think they are finally starting to get the picture and beginning to push back!

Thomsen observed that “Nearly half of white Americans living in the South feel like they’re under attack, a new Winthrop University poll found. Forty six percent of white Southerners said they agree or strongly agree that white people are under attack in the U.S….And 30 percent of all respondents in the poll agreed when asked if America needs to protect and preserve its white European heritage. More than half the respondents disagreed with this statement. Forty percent of respondents said they believed that Confederate statues should remain as is.” However, 25 percent said some sort of plaque should be added to “contextualize” (adulterate) the meaning of the statue. I wonder if that 25 percent would feel the same way about a statue of Martin Luther King Jr or socialist Carl Schurz.

Problem is, you don’t dare try to “contextualize” anyone else’s history but that of the white folks. To do that to anyone else’s statues or cultural monuments would be politically incorrect (racist), but it’s perfectly okay to do it to those of the white folks. In fact, it’s part of the game. It’s called cultural genocide if you do it to anyone but white folks, but for the white folks it’s perfectly okay to do it. You see, it’s open season on them 24/7, all year. It’s good that some of them are finally beginning to wake up and realize what’s being done to them.

I have read so much Marxist drivel from college professors and other PH.Ds (piled higher and deeper) about how all whites should be ashamed of being white and should work to repudiate their “whiteness” while taking pains to embrace every other pagan culture out there to express their “solidarity” with the world, that it just about makes me sick. The Lord made all people who and what they are, and to openly repudiate what the Lord created, the way He created it, is a repudiation of God and His perfect plan. Not that this would bother some of those people. The same principle is true for those people that want sex changes. They refuse to be satisfied with what God made the way He made it, so they plan to improve on it. They seem to think they have more wisdom than God, which is untrue, not that you could convince them of it.

The same situation holds true for Southern accents. An article I read in The Washington Times for November 7th, by David Keene, noted, of a person he wrote about “…he could never vote for Mr. Carter (back in 1976) because of his ‘Southern accent’.” As a Southerner, he “talked funny.” Now I had my problems with Jimmy Carter and I didn’t vote for him, but it sure wasn’t  because of him, as a Southerner, “talking funny.” His politics were much too cozy with those of David Rockefeller and the Trilateral Commission to suit me.

Could it be said that not voting for a person because you don’t like the way he talks makes you a bigot? Well, in the world of the cultural Marxist it doesn’t seem to–unless, of course, you are a Southerner! And if that happens to be the case, then, to those people, you are automatically a bigot–from the first breath you draw!

Over the years I’ve been called a racist, an anti-Semite, an Islamaphobe, and a “deplorable” as well as several other things I do not care to list here. Most of these epithets are designed to stifle reasonable debate or discussion. Folks who get called these names need to realize that fact and keep talking anyway. When folks throw some of these names at me, I don’t let it stop me from saying what I have to say, and that bothers some of them, because nasty names are supposed to shut you up and they don’t always. I just tell them–I don’t care what you call me. Just don’t call me late for supper.

Conservatives Continue to Lose Because They Just Don’t Know the History

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Christians and other patriotic folks, even with Trump in office, continue to lose the battle for our culture because we just don’t know our history. And what’s worse, many of us just don’t care to learn if it goes against our preconceived notions or what we were taught in those indoctrination centers we insist on referring to as “public schools.”

I almost can’t count the times in the past ten years or so that I have gotten “alarm” bulletins from various patriotic and conservative groups that are suddenly up in arms because someone is supposedly threatening to do away with the pledge of allegiance. It seems that they literally view this pledge as being on a par with the Declaration of Independence. Folks, I’ve got a news flash for you all–it ain’t! And if it was done away with tomorrow we would not be the worse off.

According to one of these “alarm” notices that I got today (11/11/17) the Washington Post  claims the pledge is “…steeped in bigotry…origins in nativism and white nationalism.” To put it bluntly, such assertions are a crock.

I will defend our Confederate monuments. I will defend other historic statues and monuments that reflect our Christian culture. I will defend the National Anthem, written by a Christian man. I will not defend the pledge of allegiance. Why? Because I know its history and the people so frantic to defend it don’t seem to.

In our book Lincoln’s Marxists Donnie Kennedy and I have dealt with the pledge of allegiance  and its dubious “Christian” author on pages 30 and 46. If you have the book, check it out. If you haven’t bothered, maybe you should get it.

On page 30 we wrote: “For most modern day Christians it is very difficult to think of anyone being a Christian and a socialist, let alone a communist at the same time. These very same Christians will dutifully place their right hand over their heart and repeat the pledge of allegiance to the United States flag, a pledge that was written by one of America’s most notable Christian socialists, Francis Bellamy.”This man, who incidentally, was a minister in a church in Massachusetts, was the cousin of socialist Edward Bellamy. We said that: “Each time an American places his hand over his heart and recites the pledge of allegiance, he is repeating a pledge inspired by and written by a utopian socialist ideologue. Francis Bellamy’s denial of the deity of Christ, his denial of the resurrection of Christ, and his rejection of the Bible as the infallible Word of God led to his removal as a Baptist minister. Born and raised in Massachusetts, a short stay in the South  was enough to convince Bellamy  that the South was hopelessly tied to orthodox Christianity even to the point of rejecting such modern and progressive theories as evolution. Francis Bellamy believed that the defining event in American history was the Civil War, and he admitted that he desired that his pledge would reinforce everything that the arguments of Hamilton…the speeches of William H. Seward and Lincoln (and) the Civil War had accomplished.” So there is the true origin of your “pledge of allegiance”–the parting shot of “reconstruction” at the South–one nation “indivisible.” And if that is true, then your Confederate ancestors, and mine, were all traitors. So stop and reflect on that before you so eagerly recite this spurious pledge, in the name of “patriotism.”

One might  almost be led to wonder if the Washington Post’s real agenda was to get ill-informed Christians and patriots all wound up so they would expend their time and effort eagerly defending a major tenet of socialism–one nation indivisible!

How many Christians and conservatives will jump on this bandwagon and throw themselves into an effort to defend the pledge because they just don’t know the real history???  You think it ever occurs to the socialists and the One World Government crowd to get us chasing our own tails this way? Of course it does!  And we fall for it every time! They pull the same stunt on Christians with the Battle Hymn of the Republic, a thoroughly Unitarian dirge that has appeared in more Christian hymn books than I like to think about.

Until we get serious about learning our real history we will continue  to fall prey to every “hot button” issue the Leftists continue to strew in our path and waste our time and effort defending what is really socialism when we should be defending our God-given liberties.

Rewriting Your History By Destroying Your National Anthem–what they didn’t tell you

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

In my most recent article about the destruction of Southern history (and eventually all real US history) I noted that part of that destruction was the promotion of the “reality show” mentality and the promotion of continual sports extravaganzas. People can now watch continuous wall-to-wall sports programs literally every weekend as well as about three nights per week–giving them no time to think about anything of any greater depth than the batting averages of their favorite baseball players or the running yardage of their favorite football players. And then we have basketball, track, hockey, tiddly-winks and a host of others also.

And while there is nothing wrong with a little recreational viewing of various sports events  (I like to watch a good rodeo once in awhile myself) it has gotten to the point in this country now where the sports events are almost a form of idolatry.

Hopefully, some of that may be starting to change as some people begin to be rudely awakened to where some of our “sports” figures may really be at. They make millions of dollars a year and are able to live in the lifestyle of the rich and famous, yet when it comes to the National Anthem of the country where they have been so blessed, they can’t be bothered to stand up. In fact, they take the trouble to kneel in protest to that National Anthem. You have to wonder where some of these guys are politically–if they are even able to define a political thought. Patriotic they ain’t–somewhat Leftwing many of them may well be. And what about those that encourage them to participate in this inane stuff? You have to wonder how many of these encouragers have any leverage with the ball clubs these guys play for. Might be a good question for debate sometime.

So now we have many of these athletic “rocket scientists” kneeling in opposition to standing while the National Anthem is being played. They seem to feel that this country “oppresses” people of color and they buy into this “white privilege” claptrap. All I can say is, that with the millions many of them make every year, I’ve often had the thought that I wouldn’t mind being as financially “Oppressed” as they are. I suppose I shouldn’t say it, but I will anyway–people who make millions each year and still gripe about being “oppressed” are a batch of ingrates!

Why are they protesting the National Anthem? From the cultural Marxist viewpoint, there are several reasons, all of them part of the cultural Marxist agenda.

In the first place, the Anthem’s author, Francis Scott Key, was from the area around Frederick, Maryland. Back when Key was alive Maryland was considered a Southern state. Francis Scott Key was a Southerner. Reason One.

Key was born on a plantation in what was, at that point in history, Frederick County, Maryland. And Key’s family were (gasp! horror of horrors–slave owners!) That says most of it right there. Anyone who was a slave owner in the 1800s is, today, automatically beyond the pale–not even fit to be talked about except in a highly critical manner. Reason Two.

Francis Scott Key was a devout Episcopalian. As a youngster he had actually considered becoming an Episcopal priest, but ended up becoming a lawyer instead. I wonder if he ever reflected on his choice. He was active in his church. He helped found two Episcopal seminaries and was associated with the American Bible Society. So Francis Scott Key was a Christian. There’s Reason Three right there!

If you understand the mentality and the workings of the Shadow Government types in our day, you begin to see that there is a lot more to this protest against the National Anthem than you have been told about.

Key was a Southerner, a Christian, and was opposed to the radical abolitionism of the William Lloyd Garrison types. Therefore, he must be completely denigrated in front of what the Establishment feels are us stupid “deplorables” so we won’t gripe too much as they try to rewrite yet one more part of our history and try to replace our National Anthem with I want the world to sing (Obama’s first choice) or Kumbiya, or the Communist Internationale  or some other worthy Marxist ditty. Because changing our history and our perspective on our history is what all of this is really all about–and they are not above using some of the “useful idiots” in the NFL to accomplish that.

So, as you can begin to perceive, there is lots more involved here than a batch of spoiled brat athletes getting their panties in a twist. This is part of the planned assault on our culture, heritage, Christian faith, and history. We had better start to wake up to that fact. That might even involve starting to go to church on the Lord’s Day instead of just climbing out of bed and flipping on ESPN, which you might just be better off if you didn’t bother with!

National Education–It Has Always Been About “Reconstructing” Southern Culture

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

In his book Segregation–Federal Policy or Racism? (Shotwell Publishing, Columbia, South Carolina) author John Chodes noted, on page 53 that: “In 1867, a small agency was created by Congress. It was called the Bureau of Education. It consisted of only five employees: a supervisor and four clerks, ‘to collect such statistics and facts as shall show the condition and progress of education in the several states and territories…as shall aid the people of the United States in the establishment and maintenance of efficient school systems, and otherwise promote the cause of education throughout the country.’ From this miniscule beginning, over time, the Bureau of Education became a gigantic department, nationalizing, controlling, and separating black and white primary and secondary schools by administering the Morrill colleges and absorbing the Freedmen’s Bureau schools into its own bureaucracy.” And we have all been led to believe that the federal Department of Education  didn’t happen until Jimmy Carter brought it in during his one-term presidency as payback to the National Education Association for their support of him. Actually,  it seems that all Carter did was to support the most recent manifestation of something that had really been around, in one form or another, for a very long time.

It seems that the educational messiahs in Washington at that time (ever read about them in your history books?) felt that one of the leading causes of Southern secession was that Southern folks had existed for all those years without the dubious “benefit” of a nationalized school system, and therefore, they were easy prey for “Southern demagogues” to con into helping their states secede from our “indivisible” Union.

Republican demagogue James P. Wickersham of Pennsylvania observed that: “It was this ignorance that enabled the rebel leaders to create a prejudice in the minds of this class of persons against the North and to induce them to enlist in their armies…As long as they are ignorant they will remain tools of political demagogues and therefore be incapable of self-government. They must be educated;…No state that has passed an act of secession should be allowed to take its former place in the Union without having first incorporated into its constitution a provision for the establishment of a free school system.” Do you begin to see where this has all been going?

What the honorable Mr. Wickersham is really saying here, in his own unique way, is that most Southern folks have just been paying attention to the wrong set of demagogues. They’ve been listening to Southern ones when they really should have been embracing Northern ones. It seems the Northern demagogues have the (politically) correct slant on all the current issues of the day and, therefore, any state that embraced secession should have to have some sort of Yankee/Marxist public school system firmly in place to brainwash the kiddies before it even dreams of unification with the glorious Union. In other words–“teach your kids to think the same way we’ve taught ours to think–or else!”

This Yankee/Marxist mindset portrays secession as some sort of evil, traitorous act that has to be “educated” out of Southern kids so they will never again be tempted to think along those lines. It would seem, if you look at some of today’s headlines, that the government educational system has been somewhat less than spectacularly successful  in obliterating  the idea of secession. There are some small blessings we can be thankful for!

Contrary to what the promoters of public education have told us for over 150 years now,  secession is not (was not) treason. The Declaration of Independence was a secession document, and three of the states that ratified the Constitution did so with the proviso that, if this new government ended up being detrimental to their states, they reserved the right to remove themselves. Virginia, Rhode Island, and New York all said that, in one form or another, in their ratification ordinances. So if secession had been treasonous then the ratification ordinances of those states should not have been accepted–but they were, and that fact alone, which most of your “history” books leave out, speaks volumes.

National (and it’s never really been local) education has always been about the restructuring of American society and culture and making it into something the Founders would not have recognized, something that the Washington and New York culture-benders wanted it to be. All this blather about “quality education for the kids” to put it bluntly, smells like a fresh West Texas cow chip on a hot day in August. It’s pure bovine fertilizer–and not even the high grade stuff at that!

As far as all the Confederate monuments coming down, what do you think most public schools in the South have been teaching your kids about their ancestors who seceded and fought for the Confederacy? You probably don’t really want to know. But you better start finding out, because the drivel they are pushing down your kids’ throats will affect their future, your grandchildren’s futures and the future of your Southern culture.

Just remember this–if you take nothing else away from what you’ve read here–“Reconstruction” is ongoing. It has never stopped. It may have shifted gears here and there, but it has never ceased. It is as relevant to your lives today as it was to those who surrendered at Appomattox.

Key Words For Confederate Monuments–“On Private Land”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Usually, I seldom quote the New York Times as it is not one of my favorite publications, and I have accused it, over the years, of not printing “all the news that’s fit to print” but rather of printing all the news that fits (the agenda).

On August 30th I read a Times article by a Sabrina Tavernise, and although I did not agree with all her conclusions in this article, she did bring up some points worthy of comment.

To start her article she noted: “One of the proudest moments of Robert Eldreth’s life was erecting a Confederate monument on a patch of grass behind the Georgetown (Delaware) Historical Society in 2007. It was the first monument to Delawareans who had served the Confederacy, and the fact that it came 142 years after the end of the war hardly mattered. ‘It’s a lesson in history,’ said Mr. Eldreth, who led the group that put it up. ‘It’s about our roots and sacrifices that those citizens here in Delaware made. To me that’s so honorable’.”

Ms. Tavernise made an interesting comment, citing the damage the Charlottesville episode was intended to cause the cause of Southern history and heritage, when she said: “While old monuments erected in bygone eras are coming down, new ones continue to go up.” Most in the mainstream media would never admit this.

She mentioned other instances along this line. She observed: “In Crenshaw County, Alabama,  a new monument to ‘unknown Confederate soldiers’ was unveiled Sunday in a private park. In the small East Texas town of Orange, a giant concrete ring of 13 columns, representing the states the Confederacy claimed as its own, is going up on private land at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Martin Luther King Drive.”

A historian at the University of North Carolina has also stated “There has been a Civil War memorial boom going on over the last 20 years.” He noted that at least 36 monuments had gone up in North Carolina since 2000 and that was as many as were put up in all the years between 1940 and 1990.

At this point, Tavernise made a statement I somewhat had to disagree with. She did note that, while in former years, monuments and memorials were put up in “busy public squares” the monuments going up today are appearing in quieter areas, more away “from the bustle of daily life on plots of private land, or on battlefield sites,…” And while many Americans don’t want to see monuments taken down, she feels that new monuments are not finding the acceptance in “broader society” that they once did. I guess that depends on where the “broader society” is coming from. If you are talking about Northern Virginia, which has become infested with dwelling places for Washington bureaucrats, she might have a point. However, I don’t think that holds true for many other places in the South.

A Sons of Confederate Veterans commander in Alabama noted that more monuments will go up, but it will be on private property. That seems to be the trend now, and in light of all the cultural destruction and ethnic cleansing that has gone on in the South in recent years, that seems to me to be the way to go. We need to keep putting up our monuments, flags, and memorials, but do it on private property, where culturally Marxist city and town council members can’t get their grubby collectivist paws on them. Oh, they will wail and moan about the “injustice and racism” of it all because they don’t get their way. Tough, baby. Let them know this is how the cookie crumbles.

Not as many may get to see some of the monuments in more out of the way places, but those that really care and want their children to appreciate their culture and heritage will make the effort to visit these places. And their culture and history will be preserved–even if it is a little ways outside of town. In the long run, that doesn’t matter.

The key to putting up our monuments, flags, and memorials is to start doing it on private land! The folks mentioned in this article have shown that this can be done, and for the sake of our children and their children’s futures it needs to be done. Whatever the cultural Marxists manage to tear down, let us be replacing as much as we can on private land. Private land!!! Even the thought of that makes the cultural Marxists cringe!

Political Ignorance–Part of the new slavery

by Al Benson Jr.

There a lots of “useful idiots” out there on the Left that couldn’t pour water into a teapot if they were handed a set of gilt-edged instructions along with the water. Our government education system has largely aided in their brainwashing and programming so that they think good is evil, freedom is slavery, and white is evil, even though many of them are white. They claim that fascism is a “right-wing” phenomena when any sane person recognizes that there is precious little difference between a Nazi (national socialist) and a Communist (international socialist). They are both socialists!

I just read an article this morning from Frontpage Magazine, by Matthew Vadum, dealing with Antifa, which is supposed to be an “anti-fascist” group but, in reality, acts as though they were Hitler’s brown shirts. Vadum stated in his article: “Video has surfaced showing masked Antifa thugs in Berkeley, California, last weekend calling for the destruction of the United States…It is becoming increasingly clear that the Antifa, short for anti-fascists, are the de facto militant arm of today’s Democratic Party…” According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News “This is a political militia that is doing the bidding, in effect, of Nancy Pelosi and Governor Jerry Brown and the mayor of Berkeley and all these supposedly mainstream Democratic politicians, and this is a militia hurting American citizens for saying what they think.”

And Antifa does have an agenda, whether its own or one that was handed to it by those who finance its Leftist political gyrations or not, I don’t know, but I rather think it’s one that has been handed to them and then they have been left to work out the particulars.

They talk about “creating a culture of  tolerance and then they employ the techniques of cultural Marxism to work that out. They say “To create a culture of tolerance, we must first eliminate all forms of hate speech. Every idea critical of our movement or our way of thinking  must be condemned as” racist, homophobic, misogynist, etc.” So, in their “culture of tolerance” they are going to condemn the opinions or ideas of anyone that dares to disagree with their collectivist viewpoint.

And they continue: “…When all else fails, compare someone to Hitler. Every once in awhile one of our minority group friends will become disillusioned and speak out as a conservative a.k.a. fascist. Belittle them as delusional..Our color, my blackness, for example, comes first. It defines who I am. Black first, American second. Gay/Lesbian first, little person/dwarf second, American third, and so on.”

And they say: “Most liberals are not ANTIFA (yet) but soon they will be…Never call any immigrant ‘illegal,’ obviously.  They are ‘undocumented…By 2117, one hundred years from now, our goal is to have 70% of the US population be non-white…”

They have a big interest in controlling the media and they have a big interest in the social media. They have said: “Social media is the new battlefront of ideals. We’ve seen what kind of power these outlets yield by kicking major fascists off their platform before. This will and this must only continue.” In other words they work to eliminate opinions contrary to their own. So much for “free speech.” It’s “free” if they say it is–otherwise it’s “fascist.”

And they make an interesting statement for those of you who have kids. They say: “Many of us first learned about Antifa and gained our views on college campuses and universities across the country. This needs to start earlier. Take up teaching as a profession. Educate the youth about the dangers of fascism…Teach little Tommy not just how to read good, but also how to think and act good.”  All in accord with the worldview of Antifa, of course. Maybe, if his parents are not too sharp about what goes on in school, they can teach little Tommy to be a good socialist! That’s where they are really headed and one way for them to do that is to make sure that little Tommy has no cultural heritage, particularly Southern cultural heritage, to fall back on, because like all good socialists, Antifa knows that if they steal your youngsters’ history and heritage they will control his future instead of you.

This is just a little something for you to ponder as you sit in front of the TV and watch the Anfifa thugs, all masked, march across your screen in their quest to “destroy fascists” which means  you!  

Coups And Questions

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Has anyone other than me noticed a subtle shift in the direction the Trump administration seems to be taking? I try to keep track of all this, from various websites to You Tube presentations,to news articles people send me, and in just the last few days, I have gotten the feeling on the back of my neck, where the hair stands up (what there is of it) that something is going on–and it ain’t good!

One source noted some signs of a possible coup, and one of those signs was a lack of information for the President from previous sources, which have been mostly good sources. Now it seems that his “new” sources of information all have to be “official” sources, which means that friends, and even some family, no longer seem to have access to him and information previously passed to him by friends now has to go through “official” channels, which will ultimately decide what the President sees–or if he sees it at all.

Trump has three generals in the White House. At least two of them have connections with Deep State organizations. So who advised him in choosing these guys? None of them are on the same page he is on, but yet they all have high level positions in his administration and he has been out there defending at least one of them against those who have taken the trouble to point this out. So what’s the deal?

Congress has just recently passed a bill on Russian sanctions, which don’t help our situation regarding World War 3 to any great extent. Supposedly the bill was on Trump’s desk by July 29th. I even read some articles that said that Congress passed this to tie Trump’s hands in dealing with Russia. Makes you wonder which side Congress is really on–well, not quite–seeing that leadership positions are held by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, whose wife is also in Trump’s cabinet and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which side Congress is on–and it ain’t ours!

If Trump signs this bill–does it indicate that he has seen the handwriting on the Deep State wall and is ready to throw in the towel. Or does it indicate that his decisions are already being made for him and no one else realizes it yet? Has decision making on important issues been taken away from Trump? I realize there are lots of questions here but I want folks to start thinking about this stuff.

If the Deep State is making the major decisions already, will they, in the long run, even be able to leave Trump alive? He represents what many Americans want–a desperately needed change in the direction this country has gone in for decades. Ultimately, the Deep State not only hates Trump, but all of us “deplorables” that voted for him too. Should some “accident” befall him, would that be a Deep State lesson to patriotic Americans to just “shut up and sit down?”—or Deep State Daddy will be coming for you?

Michael Savage has said that if the Deep State takes out Trump there will be a civil war in this country. Ordinary folks will rise up and fight back. One can hope and pray that Michael Savage is right. Based on what I have seen over the years, all I can say is that, on this and several other questions “I’m from Missouri–you gotta Show Me!”

It seems we are entering a time when Christians are really going to need to be able to discern good from evil. Or as Matthew said in Matthew 7:15, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Some of them may come in military uniforms with lots of medals on them, and some may come in expensive suits worn by congressmen, but the “ravening wolf” part still applies–maybe even more so.

When Trump got elected I felt the Lord was giving us one more chance to repent and start to turn around. I’m not sure we’ve done an awful lot of that. Judging from some of the response I’ve seen, lots of folks, when Trump got elected, just said: “Well, we’ve got another Republican in the White House now so we can all just take it easy and go back to sleep for another four years.” That was hardly the response that is needed.

If the Deep State succeeds in taking out Trump, unless there is great revival, you will not have another chance at decent government in this country, not only in our lifetimes, but in the lifetimes of our great grandchildren. Most people do not realize what is at stake here. Most Christians do not realize.
