Hemisphere of Freedom

In 1823, President James Monroe formalized a latent national policy of protecting the Western Hemisphere from the tyrannical encroachments of outside influence. This noble policy came to be known as the Monroe Doctrine. Today, the Monroe Doctrine is often viewed as a relic of the past – an outdated, or even imperialistic, policy. President Obama’s anti-American regime in fact announced that “the era of the Monroe Doctrine is over.” This article is a brief defense of the Monroe Doctrine and the United States’ role in preserving the Western Hemisphere as one of Freedom.

Before delivering his hallmark speech to Congress formally announcing the policy, President James Monroe wrote to Thomas Jefferson for advice. The Sage of Monticello responded with a letter that confirmed Monroe’s convictions and gave him some of the iconic phraseology he would later use. Jefferson wrote of President Monroe’s proposed doctrine:

“The question presented by the letters you have sent me is the most momentous which has ever been offered to my contemplation since that of independance that made us a nation; this sets our compass, and points the course which we are to steer thro’ the ocean of time opening on our view. And never could we embark on it under circumstances more auspicious. Our first and fundamental maxim should be, never to entangle ourselves in the broils of Europe; our 2d never to suffer Europe to intermeddle in Cis-Atlantic affairs. America, North & South, has a set of interests distinct from those of Europe, and peculiarly her own. She should therefore have a system of her own, separate and apart from that of Europe. While the last is laboring to become the domicil of despotism, our endeavor should surely be to make our hemisphere that of freedom.”

The great Thomas Jefferson was thrilled at the prospect of making ours a “hemisphere . . . of freedom.” The principle of intervening in foreign affairs when those affairs negatively impacted or directly threatened a nation’s legitimate interests or their national well being was internationally recognized and remains legitimate to this day. As president, Jefferson had in fact sent the newly-minted U.S. Navy and Marine Corps to fight “state-sponsored maritime marauders” in the Mediterranean.  Yet, the policy had never been publicly articulated by an American administration in the way President Monroe was proposing.

The bold idea that President Monroe and Thomas Jefferson shared was that the Western Hemisphere, being distinct from Europe and having an inherently different set of interests and values, should never be meddled with by European (or any foreign) powers. They knew that as a nation we could not afford to allow hostile powers to turn our hemisphere into an abode for tyranny like they had done to the rest of the world. Rather, the United States should use her influence to maintain the Independence of her fellow American states – both to protect their integrity and to strengthen the borderlands of our own Republic.

In his monumental message to Congress on December 2, 1823, President Monroe described what America’s new policy would entail and the reasons for its implementation. He said in part:

“The citizens of the United States cherish sentiments the most friendly in favor of the liberty and happiness of their fellow men on that side of the Atlantic. In the wars of the European powers in matters relating to themselves we have never taken any part, nor does it comport with our policy so to do.

“It is only when our rights are invaded or seriously menaced that we resent injuries or make preparation for our defense. With the movements in this hemisphere we are of necessity more immediately connected, and by causes which must be obvious to all enlightened and impartial observers.

“The political system of the allied powers is essentially different in this respect from that of America. This difference proceeds from that which exists in their respective Governments; and to the defense of our own, which has been achieved by the loss of so much blood and treasure, and matured by the wisdom of their most enlightened citizens, and under which we have enjoyed unexampled felicity, this whole nation is devoted.

“We owe it, therefore, to candor and to the amicable relations existing between the United States and those powers to declare that we should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety. With the existing colonies or dependencies of any European power we have not interfered and shall not interfere, but with the Governments who have declared their independence and maintained it, and whose independence we have, on great consideration and on just principles, acknowledged, we could not view any interposition for the purpose of oppressing them, or controlling in any other manner their destiny, by any European power in any other light than as the manifestation of an unfriendly disposition toward the United States.”

The “allied powers” to which President Monroe referred were Russia, Austria, and Prussia, with occasional French involvement. This Russian-led, Russian-instigated, Russian-dominated combination was known as the Holy Alliance. Its purpose was to crush popular Liberty movements worldwide and retain so-called “Christian” monarchies in power. Indeed, the Russian tsar was convinced that Providence had called him to uphold and extend the monarchical system. The reality, of course, was that God moved upon the American patriots of 1776 and 1787 to break away from the rotten monarchical apparatus and establish a limited constitutionalist system of individual Liberty and personal accountability.

The Monroe Doctrine must be seen within the context of the movements and plans of the misguided Holy Alliance. During the first two decades of the nineteenth century, uprisings gripped Latin America as nations threw off the shackles of Spanish power and created independent states – Mexico, Panama, Bolivia, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, and so forth. An online piece describes the Holy Alliance’s reaction to these Independence movements and the American response to said reaction:

“At just this point, Russia, Prussia and Austria formed an association called the Holy Alliance to protect themselves against revolution. By intervening in countries where popular movements threatened monarchies, the Alliance — joined at times by France — hoped to prevent the spread of revolution into its dominions. This policy was the antithesis of the American principle of self-determination.

“As long as the Holy Alliance confined its activities to the Old World, it aroused no anxiety in the United States. But when the Alliance announced its intention of restoring its former colonies to Spain, Americans became very concerned. For its part, Britain resolved to prevent Spain from restoring its empire because trade with Latin America was too important to British commercial interests. London urged the extension of Anglo-American guarantees to Latin America, but Secretary of State John Quincy Adams convinced Monroe to act unilaterally: “It would be more candid, as well as more dignified, to avow our principles explicitly to Russia and France, than to come in as a cock-boat in the wake of the British man-of-war.””

images-duckduckgo-com5

The Holy Alliance, by its very nature, could not be contained to the “Old World.” The text itself stated that the monarchs were bound to support each other “on all occasions and in all places.” On October 17, 1823, President James Monroe wrote to Thomas Jefferson informing him that he had received letters from George Canning, a prominent British politician of the era, “suggesting designs of the holy alliance, against the Independance of So America, & proposing a cooperation, between G. Britain & the UStates, in support of it, against the members of that alliance.” With the threat of Russian interference in the Americas looming nearer, James Monroe consulted Thomas Jefferson and crafted the Monroe Doctrine.

One of the exemplary patriots of our time, Ezra Taft Benson, gave us poignant insight into the purpose and necessity of the Monroe Doctrine. He affirmed:

“The purpose was to maintain the current balance of power so that we would not become the targets of future aggressive designs of European nation with massive strongholds on or near our borders. It was felt that the maintenance of an ocean between ourselves and European powers would safeguard us from becoming reluctantly entwined in the perennial intrigues and wars of the Continent.

“Whenever the physical security of the United States is directly threatened, as it was in the Cuban crisis, we must not hesitate to uphold the traditional meaning of the Monroe Doctrine: our unilateral opposition to outside intervention in the Western Hemisphere. This Doctrine laid down as a broad principle of action and applied to world communism enjoys strong public support for foreign policy decisions. . . .

“The Monroe Doctrine is based upon the principle, long recognized in international law journals, that a nation has a right to interfere in the affairs of another nation if such interference is with in the framework of self-defense. In other words, if the establishment by a foreign power of unusually heavy military installations is observed on a nation’s frontier, and if that nation has good reason to believe that those installations eventually are going to be used as part of an offensive attack against it, then it is justified in taking the initiative in destroying those installations, without waiting for the actual attack. Such action, although aggressive by itself, is viewed as part of a generally defensive maneuver.

“. . . the Monroe Doctrine neither added nor detracted one iota from what the United States had a right to do. All it accomplished was to inform other nations what conditions the United States would consider a sufficient threat to its long-range security to justify involving, if need be, the sovereign right of preventative self-protection. If other nations wished to test our resolve or our strength in these matters, that was up to them, but at least we went on record and laid our cards on the table so that no one could say they didn’t know.

“The important point, however, is that, even if the Monroe Doctrine had never been enunciated, the United States – or any nation for that matter – would still be justified in attempting to prevent an upset on the stable balance of power among its friendly bordering neighbors if it were convinced that such a shift in power eventually would result in a threat to its own security. That principle, which is at the heart of a nation’s right to self-preservation, is just as valid today as ever before – and especially so for the United States.

“. . . The Monroe Doctrine is right, it just needs to be applied.

A bearded gravedigger and his Soviet overlord

“There is no doubt in my mind that the American people would be angry if they fully realized the extent to which our leaders have abandoned the vital principle of preventative self-defense on behalf of our nation. If a man says he is going to shoot you, and then points a gun in your direction, you don’t have to wait until he pulls the trigger before you take action to overpower him. When the communists say they are going to bury us and then move a bearded gravedigger right next door, we should grab him by the hair of his chin and throw him out! And we don’t have to apologize to anyone for our action.

“What we need is a new application of the Monroe Doctrine – a declaration to the nations of the world to inform them that no longer are we going to tolerate communist or other hostile regimes on or near our borders” (see Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This“).

What a powerful statement of reality! As a nation, we have abandoned our prerogative to defend ourselves against the threats and encroachments of hostile communist regimes in our hemisphere. We have betrayed the Monroe Doctrine! We have sold out our security in order to appease the socialistic “international community” and communist-controlled organizations like the United Nations. We have not cared enough that our nation has been made extremely vulnerable by the communist infestation south of our border.

It is not inconsequential that the Monroe Doctrine was established to thwart Russian meddling in the Americas when we consider that today Russian/Chinese communist meddling is the gravest threat in our hemisphere. The Twentieth Century saw the tragic planting of the Red flag throughout the world. In few places was communist intervention so overt and successful as in Latin America.

JFK’s campaign advisor, Adolf Berle, said that Latin America was “an active Cold War theatre of attack upon the United States.” He further stated that, specifically, it was “Russian and Chinese stimulation and arming of local political movements to [the] point where they can be converted into civil wars and used to seize and set up governments which will be hostile to the United States” that was the foremost threat (Stephen G Rabe, The Most Dangerous Area in the World: John F. Kennedy Confronts Communist Revolution in Latin America, 22). It was so in the 60s and it is so today in 2019.

Cristeros executed during the communist revolution in Mexico

Most people do not comprehend the menacing leviathan that sits camouflaged and ready to strike from Latin America. Americans do not realize, for instance, that Mexico has been a communist stronghold for nearly a century. Tens of thousnds of Christian Freedom fighters, Cristeros, were murdered as the Masonic communists conquered the nation. Under this pernicious influence, Mexico was the first nation in the world to recognize the illegitimate Soviet regime in Russia. It was the land Trotsky called home when Stalin exiled him from the Soviet Union. For decades, Red Mexico has covertly waged war against us via illicit drugs, illegal immigration, etc. And the rest of Latin America has fared nearly as poorly under the advances of global communism.

I currently sit writing this article in Panama City, Panama. The Chinese influence in some places here is almost in-your-face obvious. The fact that the U.S. government gave away the critically-important Panama Canal, and that it has fallen into Chinese hands, is equally obvious. It was always one of the communist goals to wrest control of the Canal from us, and they have succeeded. What’s more, Panama’s outgoing president cozied up with Red China during his unpopular term, signing numerous major economic and construction deals that greatly benefit China and give that aggressive communist nation major leverage in Panamanian affairs. Chinese influence is growing so profoundly here that Huawei recently began installing an invasive facial recognition system similar to the one the Reds installed in their own enslaved nation.

Unfortunately, the United States has fiddled while the Americas have burned. That is, communist-sponsored regimes have been installed throughout Central and South America while we have ignored the crisis – indeed, while certain traitors in our government tied our hands and facilitated the conflagration. To be sure, we have fought back in a limited way. Operation Just Cause in Panama, for instance, was carried out to remove the Marxist dictator Manuel Noriega from power. Noriega had recently declared war on the United States and entered into dangerous agreements with Soviet client states. Caches of Soviet weapons were discovered everywhere by our military personnel during the operation. Despite the success of Operation Just Cause – an operation cheered by the Panamanian people at the time, though considered unjust American “imperialism” now after a generation of brainwashing – Panama has once more been roped into the communist orbit, as noted.

Brazil is one nation in our hemisphere that is currently fighting back against communism. Brazil is the B in the acronym BRICS, which is a new international communist bloc headed by Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. However, late last year, Jair Bolsonaro was elected president of Brazil. Bolsonaro ran on a blatantly anti-communist platform. In his acceptance speech, he said: “We cannot continue flirting with socialism, communism, populism and left-wing extremism.” If only we, too, recognized the dire threat communism poses to our Hemisphere, we could move to stop it. Though I think the victories are short-lived, I pray God helps Brazil succeed in cleansing their nation.

One of the most glaring cases of communist intervention in the Americas is Venezuela. Venezuela was once a prosperous nation before the communists took over. Today, however, socialist policies have turned Venezuela into a third-world trash heap where people are literally starving and Nicolas Maduro runs the county like a classic Marxist dictator. Russia and China, of course, have been behind the tragic destruction. President Trump has recently turned his sights on Venezuela and has threatened military action (though his threat to intervene is likely as hollow as his promise to put U.S. troops on our Southern border). In response, Russia rushed in to safeguard its stronghold. In December, Russian nuclear bombers landed in Venezuela and in March Russian troops arrived. If Russian nuclear bombers three hours from our border do not spur us to invoke the Monroe Doctrine to protect our nation’s flanks, what will?

Will the United States act to cut out the communist tumor or will Venezuela remain a Cuba-like GULAG for decades more? And what of Nicaragua, Uruguay, and the other states in our backyard that we have allowed to be seized by the communists? What will we do? Will we step aside and allow Russia and China to fully take over? Will we further allow ourselves to be surrounded and isolated in a hemisphere we once swore to preserve in Freedom? It seems obvious to me that the only thing that can save the Latin American states from communist aggression is American intervention – yes, even military intervention where necessary.

If you care about the welfare, preservation, and self-defense of our great Republic, you must support the Monroe Doctrine. As Ezra Taft Benson stated, the Monroe Doctrine is correct but needs to be applied. Will we finally take the initiative to free Latin America from communist strangulation and remove the grave threat to our south? Truthfully, the threat is not far away; it touches us every day via illegal immigration and the mass smuggling of narcotics into our land. It is not merely a border crisis that afflicts us – it is a crisis engulfing the whole of our hemisphere.

10kMiles-790x400

The situation in the Americas is extremely critical. To invoke or not to invoke the Monroe Doctrine is one of the most pressing questions facing us. As for me, I will denounce communist aggression wherever it festers. And I openly throw my support in with those past American patriots who wanted the Western Hemisphere to be a Hemisphere of Freedom.

Moloch’s Modern Children

In Ancient Israel, the apostate Hebrews adopted the pagan practice of child sacrifice to false gods. Psalm 106:35-38 informs us that the Israelites:

“mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them. Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils, And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.”

Moloch1

One of those pagan idols was Moloch, also known as Molech or Milcom. This heathen god was often associated with Baal and Ashtoreth. The salient point, however, is that in their wicked state the Israelites sacrificed their innocent children to these false deities. A greater evil than slaughtering innocent infants is hard to fathom. Yet, this practice is not a relic of the past; it is a fixture of our present.

Abortion is nothing if not child sacrifice. It is perhaps more systematized and sanitized by impersonal medical jargon than its ancient counterpart, but the result is the same – the mass slaughter of infants. Whereas the heathen peoples of the past sacrificed their children to false gods and idols for religious purposes, we sacrifice our children on the altar of political ideology.

abortion1

Abortion is a political football in the Marxists’ perverse game for world conquest.  It is a talking point to curry favor with useful idiots who can be persuaded to give up their power to the Marxist Elite. Not surprisingly, Soviet Russia was the first modern state to legalize abortion. Abortion-on-demand became endemic and took a severe toll on the Russian people. Tragically, we followed the Soviet path and legalized infanticide.

In a recent article titled “Ancient Civilizations Sacrificed Children, But We Abort Them,” Cheryl Sullenger spoke of an archaeological discovery in Peru of the bones of 137 sacrificed children. She then made this remark comparing our ghastly practice of abortion with child sacrifice in the past:

“[B]abies whose hearts were still beating were cut open so their organs could be removed – just like the children who walked through mud to their grisly deaths in Peru over five centuries ago.

“The murder of children isn’t confined to the distant past, nor to superstitious idolaters who sacrificed human beings for what they considered the benefit of their people.  It is still happening at abortion clinics, done by supposedly civilized and well-educated people, who try to convince the rest of us that this grisly barbarism is done for the betterment of humanity.

“States like New York and abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood are setting civilization back hundreds of years to the days of child sacrifice, which has morphed into the practice of abortion. Today the brutal violence is shrouded in euphemisms such as “reproductive health.”  Abortion has nothing to do with “reproduction” and even less to do with “health.” It is all about killing a child for the mother’s convenience. . . .

“It’s time to face the hard truth of the matter that abortion is little different from child sacrifice, no matter how hard some attempt to obfuscate that fact.  Killing babies can never improve our culture or our lives. It couldn’t in Peru over 500 years ago and it can’t in America today.”

abortion2

Truly, abortion is modern human sacrifice disguised in medical terminology and deceptively euphemistic language. It is just as grotesque and cruel today as when the heathens did it anciently. In the same powerful article just cited, Sullenger spoke of Holly O’Donnell’s “experiences harvesting aborted baby organs at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in San Jose, California.” In one particular case, the employees found that one of the “aborted” children was still alive. Here is the sick account:

“So, then I hear her call my name. “Hey, Holly! Come over here. I want you to see something kinda cool. It’s kinda neat!” So, I’m over here and – the moment I see it I’m just flabbergasted. This is the most gestated fetus and closest thing to a “baby” that I’ve seen.

“And she’s like, “Okay, I want to show you something.” So she has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here, and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating and I don’t know what to think. . . .

“I knew why it was happening. It’s because of the electrical current was — the nodes were still firing, and I don’t know if that constitutes — it’s technically dead? Or it’s alive?

“It had a face. It wasn’t completely torn up. And its nose was very pronounced. It had eyelids and its mouth was pronounced. And then, since the fetus was so intact, [Jessica] said, “Okay, this is a really good fetus and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure a brain.””

The article then concluded the morbid story:

“O’Donnell then described how Jessica began the harvesting process by cutting through the lower jaw and into the face with scissors, then instructed O’Donnell to finish cutting through the face so she could extract the brain.”

This level of callousness is not at all uncommon in the infant death industry. How many times do we have to read stories of Planned Parenthood operatives privately selling the body parts of dead babies before we wake up? How many monsters like Kermit Gosnell have to be exposed before we sit up and take note? How many more of our sons and daughters have to die before we grow a conscience and act to preserve their right of life?

abortion11

Over 70 million of God’s sons and daughters – our sweet, innocent infants – have been snuffed out in our nation since Roe v. Wade. For context, that’s more than the 60 million who were slaughtered by Lenin and Stalin in the Soviet Union. Entire generations of Americans have been cruelly wiped out. And the Marxists in Democratic clothing in are making a massive push to expand this industry of death and make permissible the murder of children even after they are successfully born. As opposed to the fictitious atrocity propaganda we have been inundated with, this is the real Holocaust we should be concerned with.

Abortion is infanticide, plain and simple. It is our modern-day version of public ritual sacrifice. We don’t sacrifice our children to Moloch by making them “pass through the fire” (2 Kings 23:10), but we do sacrifice them in murder facilities known as abortion clinics. We don’t burn them to death, but we do rip their little skulls apart and suck out their brains, inject them with fatal chemicals, snip their spinal cord, leave them in freezers to die, or cut them apart while still alive in order to harvest their organs. How are we any different than the pagan peoples of the past? If anything, we are worse because we deny that our actions are wrong and turn a blind eye to the gruesome ways in which our children are butchered.

Will we continue to listen to feminists who screech “my body, my choice”? It is not their body – it is the body of an unborn boy or girl who will grow into a man or woman. The science on this matter is settled. Only ignorant or lying individuals pretend the science is not settled regarding when life begins. Life begins at conception. This is not connected to theology or philosophy; it is pure science and biology – science that has been determined and confirmed for decades! Women are deluded if they believe the baby inside them is not a living human being, but rather just a “clump of cells.”

abortion3

No, woman, the being inside you is a little boy or girl, your future son or daughter. They have a right to live just like you do. If you do not want that child, be responsible and don’t have sex. It’s really that simple. But since you entered into the contractual arrangement of sexual intercourse – the means God gave us for creating life – you are now responsible for that child with the man you mated with. Once you create life, it is not your body and it is not your choice. We all must live with the consequences of our actions. And in this case, the “consequence” is a glorious blessing from Heaven that will bless, not burden, your life. Embrace that blessing and your calling as a mother of one of Heavenly Father’s sons or daughters.

Rather than embrace their calling as mothers, however, many selfish women make the decision to kill their offspring. They join with Moloch’s high priests to sacrifice their children on the altar of expediency, laziness, selfishness, hedonism, and ignorance. Abortion is a black mark on our society which considers itself so “civilized.”

Russell M. Nelson, a powerful religious leader whom I revere, spent his earlier career as a prominent, internationally-known doctor. He said this of abortion:

“This war called abortion is a war on the defenseless and the voiceless. It is a war on the unborn. This war is being waged globally. Ironically, civilized societies that have generally placed safeguards on human life have now passed laws that sanction this practice.

“This matters greatly to us because the Lord has repeatedly declared this divine imperative: “Thou shalt not kill.” Then He added, “Nor do anything like unto it.” Even before the fulness of the gospel was restored, enlightened individuals understood the sanctity of human life. John Calvin, a sixteenth-century reformer, wrote, “If it seems more horrible to kill a man in his own house than in a field, . . . it ought surely to be deemed more atrocious to destroy a fœtus in the womb before it has come to light.”

“Man-made rules have now legalized that which has been forbidden by God from the dawn of time! Human reasoning has twisted and transformed absolute truth into sound-bite slogans that promote a practice that is consummately wrong.

“Concern for the health of the mother is a vital one. But circumstances in which the termination of pregnancy is necessary to save the life of the mother are very rare, particularly where modern medical care is available. Another concern applies to pregnancies resulting from rape or incest. This tragedy is compounded because an innocent woman’s freedom of choice was denied. In these circumstances, abortion is sometimes considered advisable to preserve the physical and mental health of the mother. Abortions for these reasons are also rare. . . .

“To deny life to an individual because of a possible handicap is a very serious matter. Policy consistent with that logic would dictate that those already living with such deficiencies should likewise be terminated. One more step in that tragic train of thought would lead to the conclusion that those who are either infirm or inconvenient should also be eliminated. Such irreverence for life would be totally unthinkable!

“Relatively few abortions are performed for the special circumstances to which I have referred. Most abortions are performed on demand to deal with unwanted pregnancies. These abortions are simply a form of birth control.

“Elective abortion has been legalized in many countries on the premise that a woman is free to choose what she does with her own body. To an extent this is true for each of us, male or female. We are free to think. We are free to plan. And we are free to do. But once an action has been taken, we are never free from its consequences. . . .

“Life is precious! No one can cuddle an innocent infant, look into those beautiful eyes, feel the little fingers, and kiss that baby’s cheek without a deepening reverence for life and for our Creator. Life comes from life. It is no accident. It is a gift from God. Innocent life is not sent by Him to be destroyed. It is given by Him and is naturally to be taken by Him alone. I testify that life is eternal as He is eternal” (President Russell M. Nelson, “Abortion: An Assault on the Defenseless,” Ensign, October, 2008).

mother29

Yes, life is precious! Life is a gift from our Father in Heaven. We have no right to deny life to the innocent children that our Father sends into the world. These are our brothers and sisters – our family. We are behaving like vicious beasts that devour their own offspring. More pointedly, we are behaving like the pagan peoples of old who burned their children in the fires of Moloch. The precious victims of abortion are Moloch’s modern children.

Every civilized individual, every Christian, and everyone who loves the U.S. Constitution, must unite to end the Devilish infanticide that plagues our society. It is a black mark that is causing us to incur God’s wrath. Thomas Jefferson’s warning regarding slavery is applicable to abortion:

“And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are the gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with his wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just: that his justice cannot sleep for ever.”

God’s justice cannot and will not rest for ever. It will not sit by and watch as His children are callously slaughtered by the millions for long. Like the apostate Israelites whom God punished for killing their infant sons and daughters, so, too, will we reap a similar fate if we continue to sacrifice our children to Moloch. We must end the infanticide. We must end abortion. And we must end it now.

Feminism Destroys Families

Feminism is a disease! It is a spiritual, mental, cultural sickness. The Women’s Liberation movement was founded by Marxists and serves to this day as a communist front. The purpose of the organized women’s movement is to destroy the institution of the home because the home is the ultimate safeguard of society. It accomplishes this by blurring the lines between the genders, turning Biblical traditionalism on its head, breaking down marriages, destroying families, and creating animosity and disunity among the population. Simply, feminism is so dangerous because feminism destroys families.

feminism12

The communist conspirators have founded, co-opted, or used numerous movements as fronts through which they achieve their purposes and promote their insidious ideology. Marxist agitators started the destructive LGBT movement, the radical environmentalist movement, and the so-called “civil rights” movement, to name only three. Feminism, however, has been the most devastatingly effective of all communist fronts. This is so precisely because it strikes at the foundation of society – the family.

The family is the bulwark of society. It is the rock foundation of every civilization. The health of a people’s homes reveals the health of the overall society. As homes go, so goes society. The family is the key building block of humanity – the ultimate institution. Anything that undermines the family unit assaults and degrades society. And feminism is the greatest offender.

feminism2

Inessa Armand, one of the leading Bolshevik women during the early days of the communist reign of terror in Russia, made this noteworthy statement:

“If women’s liberation is unthinkable without communism, then communism is unthinkable without women’s liberation.”

According to one of the arch-feminists, “women’s liberation is unthinkable without communism.” Communism and feminism are inseparable. This is because in order for communism to succeed in its stated goal of world subjugation through world revolution, families must first be transformed and destroyed.

In The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx smugly declared:

“Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists.”

From the beginning, one of the most controversial and fundamental proposals of the communist conspiracy was the “abolition of the family.” Marx knew, and his ideological descendants understand, that the traditional family established on Biblical principles must be abolished first if communism is to be imposed upon the world.

feminism22

On March 8th, the communist holiday known as International Women’s Day, Ellie Mae O’Hagan wrote a piece for The Guardian titled “Feminism without socialism will never cure our unequal society.” The subheading of her article charges: “Gender inequality is a necessary condition of capitalism, so this International Women’s Day join a trade union.” She followed this radical line of thought and stated:

“If this sounds like socialism, it’s because it is. Only by diminishing the power of the boss class, and giving female workers more access to collectively owned social goods, can we ensure that no woman is forced to choose between sexual and economic exploitation, and poverty. Inessa Armand, the Bolshevik revolutionary who was responsible for allowing Soviet women to divorce, have abortions, participate in politics and access childcare knew that only fundamental change to the economic system could make life better for women. “If women’s liberation is unthinkable without communism, then communism is unthinkable without women’s liberation,” she argued.

“Among the hashtags and vacuous corporate slogans that now flood International Women’s Day, it’s easy to forget that it was first celebrated 110 years ago by the Socialist Party of America to honour the New York garment workers’ strike, which had been held by female workers a year earlier. Eight years after the first International Women’s Day, female revolutionaries in Russia effectively overthrew the tsar with a series of protests and strikes, which also won them the right to vote. It’s not novel to tie socialism and feminism together: they are inextricably linked as movements, and always have been.

“Of course, it’s complacent for any socialist to argue that ending capitalism will simply erase sexism from existence. Gender inequality may be a necessary condition of capitalism, but it is maintained by culture. Sexism persists because it is propped up by a deep-rooted set of beliefs and stereotypes that imagine women as inferior. These won’t be forgotten overnight by changing the economic system; they must be actively taken on and defeated – and that fight must be led by women themselves. But understanding this makes socialism even more necessary: because women can’t fight against sexism as a whole if they’re too busy trying to keep their heads above water in an economic system that exploits them. Just as gender inequality is a necessary condition of capitalism, socialism is a necessary condition for the genuine liberation of the majority of women.”

O’Hagan’s article is a truly astounding piece of ideological rubbish. I quote it only to prove a point; namely, that from day one feminism has been intertwined with and inseparable from communism. Avowed socialists founded and spearheaded the Women’s Liberation movement. Today, “the fight must be led by women themselves.” What fight? The fight to destroy capitalism, destroy the “deep-rooted set of beliefs” (i.e. Christian beliefs) that undergird society, and destroy the home. To feminists, only socialism/communism can save women from their plight. It’s time to take these radicals at their word when they say things like, “socialism is a necessary condition for the genuine liberation of the majority of women.” They’re communists, plain and simple.

Preceding even Marx in the push for worldwide feminism was the Order of Illuminati. If you trace the history of that Bavarian secret society, you are led directly to an England-based group known as the League of the Just. It was this league that in 1848 hired Karl Marx to write a manifesto of belief and that changed its name to the Communist League when that declaration as published as The Communist Manifesto. Years later, under a new name, this same secret cabal was led by Vladimir Lenin and, with Western funding, overthrew Russia in 1917, creating the Soviet Union – the same Soviet Union that was the first state to legalize abortion-on-demand and institute no-fault divorce.

The founder of the Order of Illuminati was Adam Weishaupt. Weishaupt was a keen observer of human nature. He understood that the family unit had to be shattered into pieces if Illuminism (later to be known as socialism and communism), was to conquer the globe. The method Weishaupt and his cohorts devised to destroy the home was to co-opt and deceive women into working for them unawares. He wrote:

“There is no way of influencing men so powerfully as by means of the women. These should therefore be our chief study; we should insinuate ourselves into their good opinion, give them hints of emancipation from the tyranny of public opinion, and of standing up for themselves; it will be an immense relief to their enslaved minds to be freed from any one bond of restraint, and it will fire them the more, and cause them to work for us with zeal, without knowing that they do so; for they will only be indulging their own desire of personal admiration” (Adam Weishaupt, in John Robison, Proofs of a Conspiracy, 111).

In one short paragraph, Weishaupt described the purposes and methods of the feminist movement. History has proven the tragic accuracy of his words. Those women so deceived by these criminal agitators have worked for them “with zeal, without knowing that they do so.” By rising up against Biblical traditions that they have been indoctrinated to believe are “oppressive” and “sexist,” women have assisted the Illumined Marxists in their work of overthrowing society.

In the United States, women have traditionally been, without any question or shadow of doubt, the most blessed and privileged class of society. From the beginning, women held an honored place in our nation. They have been cherished and held up as role models. No one was more praised, honored, and valued than the American woman. Authors Suzanne Venker and Phyllis Schlafly, in fact, wrote:

“[B]uried beneath the surface lies the truth: American women are the most fortunate human beings who have ever lived. No one has it better. No one” (Venker and Schlafly, The Flipside of Feminism: What Conservative Women Know – and Men Can’t Say, 14).

There was never any real oppression of women in the United States. Making women feel like underprivileged victims was a classic communist ruse used time and time again to great effect with various groups such as blacks and homosexuals. Instilling this false feeling of victimhood in women was the first step in mobilizing them for the world revolution. To reiterate the crucial point, this push began with the occultist founder of the Illuminati, Adam Weishaupt, and escalated under later communist leaders like Marx and Lenin. Feminism is part and parcel of the communist world revolution.

After a constant barrage of Marxist propaganda that painted them as “oppressed victims” of some fictitious “patriarchy,” however, the privileged American woman rebelled against her blessings and privileges. Under socialist leadership, women began demanding “equality” in a system that actually favored them, protected them, and was set up to support them in their inspired roles as wives, homemakers, and mothers. Instead of basking in the light of the American system, the system that made them the most privileged and blessed class of people in human history, Marxist-indoctrinated women served as the front-line soldiers in the cultural war against our Christian country.

In actual fact, the illusion of “equality” and “emancipation” these feminists sought ripped them from the arms of their children and the warmth of their homes and placed them in the rat race of 9-5 work. Instead of using their exceptional talents in the home to nurture the rising generation and, thus, to shape society, they gained an existence of meaningless work as drones in faceless, lifeless office buildings. With this fast-paced life, women gained high rates of depression and stress and began delaying or rejecting marriage and abandoning their God-appointed callings in the home.

tumblr_owqs6b1b5l1u8iu8mo1_500

The indoctrination has become so profound that women, and society at large, now see children as a burden. Pregnancies are routinely referred to “unwanted.” So “unwanted” are they, in fact, that over 70 million innocent babies have had their lives snuffed out by abortionists in the past 46 years since Roe v. Wade legalized infanticide. It is “inconvenient” for these worldly people to have families that present them from working, having fun, and focusing on themselves.

We live in a selfish world. And feminists epitomize selfishness. Instead of the home, they embrace hedonism. Instead of marriage, they adopt materialism. They shun familial duties and reject God’s commandments to marry (Genesis 2:18,24; Matthew 19:4-6; 1 Corinthians 11:11; Ephesians 5:31) and to multiply and replenish the earth (Genesis 1:27-28). Marxist-indoctrinated individuals certainly do not share the Lord’s view of children which asserts:

“Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.

“As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

“Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them” (Psalms 127:3-5).

Feminists are content with a self-centered lifestyle. They simply don’t have time for marriage and family. And when they do make the unpopular choice to marry, they are often so inadequate to the task that they cause divorces. Women initiate 80% of divorces in the United States. The rampant curse of no-fault divorces is symptomatic of the Red Plague of communism that has infected our population and corrupted our culture.

tumblr_p8idb45Bgr1wqltgpo1_1280

A former leader of my Church, President Boyd K. Packer, made this comment clear back in 1964:

“There is a trend in the world today—and unfortunately in the Church—for women to want to be emancipated. And we wonder at times—emancipated from what? From domesticity? From motherhood? From happiness? And to what are you in slavery? Your children? It is neither necessary nor desirable for the mother of little children to become a drudge or to be relegated to a position of servitude. It is not, however, uncommon to see women—interestingly enough many in the financially well-to-do category—over-surfeiting themselves with activities outside of the home at the expense of their little children.

“I have never known a mother to regret in the closing years of her life a sacrifice made for her children or to begrudge the cost of guiding them to fine Christian citizenship.

“On the other hand, we find almost universal remorse for neglect of family in the growing years or for overindulging children, which is symptomatic of the most serious type of neglect.

“Mothers, do not abandon your responsibilities!” (President Boyd K. Packer, “Suffer the Little Children,” General Conference, April, 1964).

If we are to fix this massive problem, women must unlearn what they have learned about relationships, marriage, and motherhood. They must cease viewing themselves as “victims.” They must realize how honored and blessed and valued they are. They must embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ which appoints them as wives, mothers, and homemakers – holy and high callings second to none in the economy of God’s Plan of Happiness for His children. They must no longer neglect their families, but return to the home.

Women, the home is where you were designed to shine! The home is your fortress of safety in this dark world. The home is your refuge from the storms of life. It is in the home where you can do the most good for society. The greatest thing you can do for you country and your community is to raise a generation of civil, kind, respectable, honorable, and righteous men and women. You may not receive the praise of the world by embracing your noble calling as a mother, but you will be honored, appreciated, and remembered for generations by your family. Which would you rather have, the hollow praise of the world or the authentic gratitude of your husband and children, your grandchildren and great grandchildren?

Cultural Marxism1

It is my firm belief that if we are to defeat feminism, we must once and for all convince women that they are being used as dupes and pawns by the communists in their push to abolish the family and enslave society. They must realize that they have been manipulated and that the fruit of their actions is the rampant divorce, millions of aborted babies, discontent between the sexes, the blurring of traditional gender roles, and the destruction of the family institution.

Researcher Henry Makow, himself a former feminist, wrote the classic book on feminism titled Cruel Hoax: Feminism and the New World Order. In it, he stated:

“Feminism’s roots in Marxist Communism explain a great deal about this curious but pernicious movement. . . .

“It is hard to escape the conclusion that feminism is Communism by another name. Having failed to peddle class war, Communism promoted gender conflict instead. The “diversity” and “multicultural” movements represent feminism’s attempt to forge “allegiances” by empowering gays and “people of colour.” Thus, the original CPUSA trio of “race, gender and class” is very much intact but class conflict was never a big seller. . . .

“. . . Feminist activists are mostly Communist dupes. We see this subversion in the dismantling of the liberal arts curriculum and tradition of free speech and inquiry at our universities. We see it when feminists push the elite “global warming” hysteria. In government, business, the media and the military. This could only happen because the financial elite in fact sponsors Communism” (Henry Makow, Cruel Hoax: Feminism and the New World Order, 36-37).

feminism7

Feminism is a top-down fraud foisted upon society via deceived women and their Bolshevik puppet masters. It is designed to disenfranchise women of their birthright as daughters of God and as co-creators with Him. It is also designed to sideline men – the traditional defenders of society. Ultimately, feminism was created not to make women “equal” to men or to win “rights” for women, but to break down society by shattering families, thus creating a weak society susceptible of overthrow.

Red Feminism must be thrown onto the ash heap of history if we are to move forward and progress as a civilization. Feminism has stunted our growth, robbed us of generations of Americans through the scourge of abortion, created deep fissures between men and women, promoted promiscuity and hedonism in place of spirituality and moral living, and, most damning, undermined the home so completely that we are at crisis levels. The key to combating this feminist enemy is to first identify it as a communist front movement.

Feminism is a Marxist movement. It is spiritual blindness whose chief principles and practices are at odds with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the plain revelations in the scriptures. If we want to save our Republic, we must save our families. If we desire to save our homes, we must extinguish the feminist conflagration burning them to the ground. If we seek to do that and preserve our People, we must know that feminism is communism and that communism is working behind the scenes to subjugate humanity under their iron rule. It’s time to wake up, America.

United Front Against Bolshevism

For the sixth time, yours truly has been banned from Facebook. Nine days ago, I ended a 30-day Facebook ban. But the censorship continues as one of my anti-Bolshevism posts, shared months ago, was targeted and used as an excuse to silence me. Consequently, I have been banned yet again for 30 days across all of my pages, pages with a combined total of over 6,200 likes and a weekly reach in the tens of thousands. The powers-that-be can’t stand when someone unapologetically and coherently speaks the truth about their communist ideology and practices. With that in mind, I am writing yet another article about the Bolsheviks who dominate our society and corrupt it like a vicious cancer.

The post that got me banned this time was an anti-Bolshevism Norwegian World War II poster. It says “Felles Front Mot Bolsjevismen” in Norwegian. In other words, “United Front Against Bolshevism” or “Common Front Against Bolshevism.” The exact poster is represented below. Judge for yourself whether an anti-communist poster merits a 30-day Facebook ban.

communism125.jpg

“United Front Against Bolshevism”

Bolshevism, or Satanic communism as it should properly be known, is the greatest threat to the world. My recent article “Unparalleled Evil” explains that no other ideology has committed as many atrocities and spread as much evil as has communism. It is the Red Plague that is sweeping the globe, ravaging economies, cultures, and nations. Communism is a demonic spiritual sickness. It is a devouring contagion that must be quarantined and eradicated if society is to survive.

Dr. Fred Schwarz, author of the classic book You Can Trust the Communists (to be Communists), warned that we must be alert and aware in order to combat the communist conspiracy:

“A knowledge of the true program of Communism and its strategy and tactics is the only protection good people of every sort have against the Communist snare. . . .

“The Communists are magnificently organized. They have dedicated personnel and they have acquired vast experience. Only on a basis of understanding, organization and dedication can we hope to meet and defeat them . . . eyes that see and minds that think must merge with hearts that love freedom, to meet this challenge” (56, 66).

communism187

The respected Ezra Taft Benson gave us a similar warning. He stated:

“Once you get the facts about our American Constitutional Republic and the threats to it – then you are going to want to do something. Certainly those who are organized and have a plan and are dedicated, though they be few, will always defeat the many who are not organized and have no plan or dedication. . . .

“Yes, the Fabian Socialists are as busy as bees rolling out the red carpet which leads inevitably to Communism. Faced with this situation our first duty is that of education. Starting with ourselves we must become familiar with the broad outlines of our movement toward destruction. We must, as President McKay has urged, become alerted and informed. After becoming informed ourselves, we must carry the word to all within hearing or seeing range, so that they, too, can become awakened. Take every opportunity to pass sound literature and books around so that your neighbors and their neighbors will awaken before it is too late. We are literally in a race against time and we must take every opportunity to spread the word” (President Ezra Taft Benson, “A Race Against Time,” BYU address, December 10, 1963).

The great anti-communist crusader J. Edgar Hoover likewise advised:

“Communism can exist only where it is protected and hidden. The spotlight of public exposure is the most effective means we have to use in destroying the communist conspiracy. Drag that conspiracy into the light! Tear it apart. Reveal the flaws in its philosophy. Keep the pressure on it. Force it into retreat” (J. Edgar Hoover, The Lion, October, 1957, in Jerreld Newquist, ed., Prophets, Principles and National Survival, 251).

communism183

I have tirelessly attempted to shine the spotlight on the communist conspiracy by publishing two books, writing articles, publishing podcast episodes, and creating countless online posts on the subject. I even have an anti-communist t-shirt in the works. I’ve done what I can with my limited resources to warn my countrymen of the mortal threat facing them.

I love America. I love our Republic. I love our inspired Constitution. I love our unique and unmatched heritage of Liberty. And I oppose every attempt to destroy that God-given Freedom. Like Thomas Jefferson, “I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man” (Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Rush, September 23, 1800). And no tyranny is more malicious, malignant, and menacing than Bolshevism.

Most people believe the myth that “communism is dead.” They also believe the mantra that the Soviet Union “collapsed.” My political awakening occurred at age twelve when I realized that communism was not dead. If people realized this fact, I believe a mass awakening could occur and we could mobilize against the communist traitors in our midst. Until that happens, however, we will not be able to put up a truly united front against Bolshevism.

In his 1987 book Perestroika, Soviet dictator Mikhail Gorbachev admitted that communism was getting an outward makeover, but that nothing substantive was changing. He confessed that “Perestroika,” the so-called “restructuring” of the Soviet Union, was a total sham:

“[Perestroika] has to a far greater extent been prompted by an awareness that the potential of socialism had been underutilized.

“The works of Lenin and his ideals of socialism remained for us an inexhaustible source of dialectical creative thought, theoretical wealth and political sagacity. His very image is an undying example of lofty moral strength, all-round spiritual culture and selfless devotion to the cause of the people and to socialism. Lenin lives on in the minds and hearts of millions of people. . . .

“Turning to Lenin has greatly stimulated the Party and society in their search to find explanations and answers to the questions that have arisen. . . .

“The essence of perestroika lies in the fact that it unites socialism with democracy and revives the Leninist concept of socialist construction both in theory and in practice. Such is the essence of perestroika, which accounts for its genuine revolutionary spirit and its all-embracing scope. . . .

“Perestroika is closely connected with socialism as a system. . . .

“Does perestroika mean that we are giving up socialism or at least some of its foundations? Some ask this question with hope, others with misgiving. . . .

“To put an end to all the rumors and speculations that abound in the West about this, I would like to point out once again that we are conducting all our reforms in accordance with the socialist choice. We are looking within socialism, rather than outside it, for the answers to all the questions that arise. We assess our successes and errors alike by socialist standards. Those who hope that we shall move away from the socialist path will be greatly disappointed. Every part of our program of perestroika—and the program as a whole, for that matter—is fully based on the principle of more socialism and more democracy” (Mikhail Gorbachev, Perestroika: New Thinking for Our Country and the World, 10, 25, 35-36).

Lenin5

“Lenin lived, Lenin lives, Lenin will live!”

This one confession should be enough to convince the skeptics that the Soviets did not go away, but merely changed their mask. Perestroika was not a conversion to “democracy,” though it uses the term “democracy” as often as possible in order to carry forth the ruse. This accords with The Communist Manifesto’s battle plan. Karl Marx wrote that “the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class to win the battle of democracy.” Democracy, then, is a mere code word for revolution in the communist vocabulary.

Gorbachev’s “Perestroika” was nothing but a push for more revolution and a full embrace of Leninism. Vladimir Lenin, you will recall, led the Bolshevik coup in Russia in 1917, butchered millions of the Russian people, caused famines and laughed at the human suffering that resulted, ravished churches and persecuted Christians, and was the high priest of the communist revolt against humanity in his day. This is the doctrine that Gorbachev’s “restructuring” in Russia was meant to achieve. As he confessed, “The essence of perestroika lies in the fact that it unites socialism with democracy and revives the Leninist concept of socialist construction both in theory and in practice. Such is the essence of perestroika, which accounts for its genuine revolutionary spirit and its all-embracing scope.”

Can we finally see through the Soviets’ lies that the USSR “collapsed” and communism “died”? Can we finally acknowledge that the Evil Empire has not gone away, but still threatens us under the iron leadership of “former” KGB agent Vladimir Putin? Can we finally wake up and recognize the communist traitors in our midst, such as Bolshevik Bernie and Comrade Cortez? Can we finally, after all this time, listen to those who have been warning about the Bolshevik fifth column that is subverting our nation?

communism191

When we encounter censorship, character assassination, cries of racism, “white guilt” insanity, legislative subversion, judicial activism, and cultural corruption, we can rest assured that the perpetrators are the exact same as those who actively tried to bring us down during the Cold War. The enemy has not retreated. We did not win the Cold War. In fact, we lost it without even realizing. We have labored under false delusions of victory for some thirty years. All the while, the communist enemy has advanced, armed to the teeth, entrenched itself, and prepared to deliver the final death blow to the West.

People scoff and call me a “conspiracy theorist.” Yet, conspiracy is a proven, documentable fact of life. And the communist conspiracy was an acknowledged fact for decades, as were its subversion efforts in our country. It is a fact that more people have been slaughtered by communist hands than by any other. It is a fact that the Soviet Empire advanced farther and faster than any other empire in history, enslaving most of the world. Did the hardened, committed murderers in the Kremlin and in Beijing simply throw up their hands, give up their power, and retire? Hardly! Evil doesn’t relinquish its power without bloodshed. It simply doesn’t and didn’t happen. And communism never died.

Bolshevism is a Satanic, demonic threat – a vicious conspiracy to snuff out Freedom and subject us to socialistic, monopolistic tyranny. The movement is more powerful and prevalent than ever before. Deluded Americans are now marching in the streets with hammer and sickle flags, celebrating communist holidays like International Women’s Day, reverencing communist icons like Martin Luther King, Jr., and turning out in droves to hear and vote for avowed socialists like Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Yet, people have the audacity to say communism is dead!

Communism is in its endgame now. We are on the brink of domestic anarchy and world war. Our culture is rotten and everyone is at each other’s throat for everything. Censorship is in full swing – particularly against anyone who speaks out against the Bolshevik conspiracy. If we continue down this path, we will soon have an open and avowed socialist for president to match our hostile Congress and activist Supreme Court. We will be buried in debt, immorality, bureaucracy, contention, lies, and war. Yet, we should not be surprised. After all, the Soviet mass-murderer Nikita Khrushchev angrily vowed all those years ago: “We will bury you!”

Founding Fathers10

If we are to defeat the communists, we must admit the threat. If we are to survive as a society, communism must be quarantined and eliminated. If we are to revive our Republic with our God-given rights, we must create a united front against Bolshevism. As our Founding Fathers said to their fellow countrymen when faced with the prospect of British tyranny, “Join or Die!” You’re either with us or with the communists. There is no middle ground. Choose very carefully.

Unparalleled Evil

Communism is Satanism. It is wholly, totally, demonstrably evil in every aspect, way, shape, form, and fashion. “Satanic communism” is in reality the proper term for this perverse ideology. Satanic communism, communism, Bolshevism, Marxism, Marxism-Leninism, socialism, Fabian Socialism, democratic socialism, progressivism, or whatever name you give it, has a history of unparalleled evil. No other world system or ideology has ever caused as much human misery, death, rapine, degradation, enslavement, and destruction as has the hideous brew we know as communism.

communism20

Some may reject the idea that socialism/communism is Satanic. It is “secular” or “atheist,” they allege. True, the average communist dupe is a secularist. However, the real leaders of the movement are not. I turned this myth of communist “secularism” on its head in my books A Century of Red and Red Gadiantons. You can review my analysis, explanations, and evidence there. Suffice it to say that the international communist conspiracy has occult origins and its most notorious leaders like Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin were literal Satanists. Reverend Richard Wurmbrand said it correctly on page 108 of his impressive book Marx & Satan that “communism is collective demon-possession.” Communism, no matter the mask it wears or the label it bears, is unparalleled evil.

To understand more fully what I mean when I say that communism is unparalleled evil, let’s turn to the dictionary. Google defines “unparalleled” as “having no parallel or equal; exceptional.” It lists such synonyms as “unique,” “singular,” “unrivaled,” “peerless,” “unexcelled,” “matchless,” “in a league of its own,” “second to none,” and “unprecedented.” With these ideas in mind, let’s rephrase the thesis of this article.

Communism is unrivaled in its evil. It is matchless in its brutality. It is singular and unique in its savagery and sadism. It is peerless in its aspirations for world subjugation. Communism is second to none and stands in a league of its own when we weigh the level of human suffering and destruction it has caused. Nothing else even compares. Nothing else even comes close. Nothing else is as vile, grotesque, abhorrent, heartless, delusional, radical, sadistic, cruel, ruthless, brutal, and murderous as is communism.

Because of coordinated and constant propagandizing by the Marxist media and court historians, people’s knee-jerk reaction is to label Adolf Hitler the “most evil figure in history” and the “Devil incarnate.” Forget about Lenin, Stalin, or Mao Tse-Tung. These same ideologues claim the “Nazi” regime was the most ruthless and brutal ever conceived, even going so far as to call National Socialism “uniquely evil.” Forget the Soviet GULAG and the Chinese Laogai, the Holodomor in Ukraine, the killing fields in Cambodia, and the murdered Cristeros in Mexico.

communism83

German anti-communist poster that reads: “The Danger of Bolshevism.”

The anti-communist, anti-Freemason, anti-international banker Hitler is held up by the communists, Freemasons, international bankers, and the global Establishment as the poster boy for evil, genocide, racism, oppression, brutality, hatred, immorality, ruthlessness, discrimination, ad infinitum. Yet they conveniently ignore statements such as this from their own political prophet, Vladimir Lenin: “We must hate – hatred is the basis of communism” (Introduced into the Congressional Record April 12, 1933 by Senator Arthur R. Robinson, 1539). As always, the communist project their sins and crimes and intentions onto other people, philosophies, and nations.

Even if we believed the verifiably-absurd accusations against Hitler’s Germany – most of which are not only fraudulent, but originated in the minds of the mass-murdering Soviets in Moscow – it is the height of ignorance to claim there is anything “unique” or exceptional about them. Indeed, the alleged German atrocities are a mere drop in the bucket compared to communist atrocities worldwide. They don’t even compare to what was done under Lenin in Russia in a few short years, to say nothing of the greater massacres and crimes under Stalin, or the still greater slaughters and enslavement under Mao Tse-tung in Red China. There was nothing unique about what the Germans are accused of doing. Indeed, the only truly “unique” evil in the world is Satanic communism.

As one who has spent many years studying the communist conspiracy, it is appalling to me how few people know or care about the greatest massacres, slaughters, and genocides in human history; namely, those carried out by the Bolsheviks during the last century. As a missionary, I walked the backstreets of Russia from 2006-2008 meeting with the human casualties of communism. They are not faceless statistics, but real people with names and lives. I have witnessed firsthand how communism breaks the spirits, deadens the souls, and hardens the hearts of entire populations. Most of those who survived the communist hell in Russia continued to live in-name-only. Everything of value had been stolen from them. For the heartache and misery they caused, the communists will one day stand to account before the Eternal Judge.

communism21

My soul abhors communism in every particular. It is vile and grotesque, macabre and bloody, vicious and animalistic, depressing and sapping, oppressive and awful. Nothing good has ever come from it. Nothing good can ever come from it. Communism is a philosophy of hatred. It is an ideology of violence. It is a cult of cruelty. As the record proves, Satanic communism has wreaked more havoc on humanity than any and all of its predecessors and contemporaries.

More people have been lied to, abused, degraded, plundered, enslaved, raped, tortured, and murdered by communists than by adherents of any and all other philosophies in world history combined. Communism has advanced farther and more rapidly than any other ideology on record. In the space of a few short decades, the communists, using Soviet Russia as its base of operations, foisted their demonic philosophy on all of Eastern and part of Western Europe, China, and North Korea, to name just a few. And this is to say nothing of the blood it spilled in Spain, Hungary, Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, Afghanistan, India, Tibet, and beyond.

Communism’s tentacles swiftly reached into every nation on the globe. Directed by the Kremlin and aided by treasonous Western financing, the Communist International, or Comintern, sent its agents into every nation to infiltrate, subvert, demoralize, degrade, and destroy. Communism’s successes are simply unparalleled. In so short a time, it subjugated the majority of the globe and snuffed out the hope, aspirations, faith, and Freedom of billions of God’s children. So prevalent is socialism in our world that there is not one nation on earth whose government is not dominated by the collectivist and socialist practices, theories, and principles outlined in The Communist Manifesto.

communism81

Just as Satan is pure evil with no redeeming features, so, too, is communism unbridled evil with not one single redeeming feature. There is no grey area with communism. There is absolutely nothing good, praiseworthy, virtuous, noble, or inspiring that the Satanic communist ideology has ever produced. The Bolsheviks have left in their wake broken promises, broken dreams, broken individuals, broken homes, broken economies, broken nations, and a broken world.

In his book Freedom and Foreign Policy, Senator Thomas J. Dodd wrote:

“Let’s get communism in true focus.

“Communism is total evil. It is all black. There is nothing gray about it. There is nothing good about it. Its ends are evil. Its means to those ends are evil.

“If, by force of circumstance, Communists are for something right, it is only as an expedient to advance their evil ends. . . .

“There is no evil so appalling that Communists would shrink from it, if it would effectively advance their ends. There is no atrocity so hideous that they would not willingly commit it if it served their purpose. . . .

“Communism is at war with the whole human race. It is based on the blasphemy that a human being is just a particle of matter, without independent mind or spirit. It seeks to destroy the family as an institution. It seeks to blot out the human conscience and to distort all concepts of right and wrong. It seeks to reduce man to a mere beast of burden, without a will, without a personality, without a home, without personal property, without knowledge of God, without hope of eternal life. . . .

“. . . Communism is fundamentally dedicated to the destruction of the Free World and of the ethical and rational bases of that world. Its fixed and unswerving objective is to destroy us. The Communists may have to postpone this destruction, they may have to adopt new approaches to it, but it remains their central objective in foreign affairs” (14-16).

communism43

Yes, communism is total evil – evil unparalleled in scope, scale, and severity. It is Satanic in every sense of that unpleasant word. It is irredeemably evil and uncontrollably vicious. Communism is the enemy of mankind. It is the enemy.

In 1966, the esteemed Ezra Taft Benson gave us this description of Satanic communism:

“Communism is not a political party, nor a military organization, nor an ideological crusade, nor a rebirth of Russian imperialist ambition, though it comprises and uses all of these. Communism, in its unmistakable reality, is wholly a conspiracy, a gigantic conspiracy to enslave mankind; an increasingly successful conspiracy, controlled by determined, cunning and utterly ruthless gangsters, willing to use any means to achieve its end” (Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, 110).

The international clique of Bolshevik gangsters who lord over us  have and will use “any means” to achieve their goal of total power over humanity. If it means starting wars, committing acts of terrorism, perpetrating mass shootings, infiltrating schools and churches in order to warp minds and hearts, lying 24/7 via their controlled media outlets, smearing innocent people, robbing the earnings of workers through “taxes,” exploding economies to create grief and dependency, or crushing the hope of people who just want to live their lives in peace, they do it. And they do it ruthlessly and gleefully. The bloody history of the 20th and 21st Centuries is directly attributable to communist machinations. And they are the architects of the coming world conflagration.

In their fantastic little book 100 Things You Should Know About Communism, the U.S. Committee on UnAmerican Activities said that communists “all have a craze for power” (76). In order to achieve total dominion over others, they will engage in “murder, robbery, revolution, treachery, and disaster” (89). Of the communist conspirators, the Committee concluded: “Their theory is that the more misery they can cause in the present the easier it will be for them to grab control in the future” (105). Yes, it is the George Soroses, Bernie Sanderses, Vladimir Putins, and Ji Xinpings of the world who delight in degradation and imbibe strength from suffering. They are global parasites sucking the lifeblood out of the nations.

Communism is mesmerizingly ruthless. It is almost unfathomably evil. If you can comprehend the evil that seethes in the Devil’s black heart, you can comprehend the malevolence that is communism. The orgy of death, violence, lies, immorality, and barbarism that engulfs this earth is Satan’s doing. But we must be conscious of the fact that Satan has no real power and of necessity operates through mortals. He certainly works through anyone who disobeys God’s laws, but to bring about his agenda of establishing a one-world government as a precursor to imposing a one-world religion controlled by him, he operates through hand-picked high priests who proselytize the Bolshevik faith.

It is against these communist crusaders that humanity must fight. It is they who lurk in the shadows and pull the strings. They are the lords of chaos. It is this cabal of conspirators who slaughtered over 60 million people in the Soviet Union and some 100 million in Red China. This band of subversives has cost millions of lives from the jungles of Vietnam to the deserts of Mexico to the sands of Syria to the plains of Europe. They have initiated wars, carried out false-flag terror attacks, assassinated dissidents, created the feminist and LGBT movements, fostered “green” environmentalist hysteria, promoted pornography, pushed drugs, depressed economies, demolished churches, wrecked homes, ruined the careers of innocent people, and deceived the globe as to who the real enemy is.

Satanic communism is strangling the life out of the world. The United States, the last bastion of resistance to the Red Plague devouring the nations, is witnessing the public advent of socialism. Bolshevik Bernie, Comrade Cortez, and the whole gaggle of traitors we currently see on the national scene are beginning to remove their masks and admit that they are – as many of us have been saying for  years – socialists hell bent on destroying everything that made our Republic the greatest, most prosperous, most powerful in the world. When we see the lifelong, avowed Jewish socialist Bernie Sanders leading the pack of Democratic presidential candidates, we know our situation is immensely dire.

communism177

Ladies and gentlemen, know these facts: Communism is treason. Communism is evil. Communism is Satanism. Communism is the enemy. Communism is the Devil’s tool to obliterate our Faith, Families, and Freedom. Communism is unequaled evil responsible for unparalleled, unsurpassed, unmatched, unprecedented, unrivaled destruction, death, and degradation. Finally, know that communism must die for America to survive!

National State of Emergency

President Donald Trump has declared a national state of emergency in relation to the conflagration at our Southern border. Many past presidents have declared states of emergency, yet the media – and pundits on both sides of the so-called “aisle” – have turned out in droves to denounce the move as “unconstitutional,” an “overreach,” “authoritarian,” and so forth. This article is intended to set the record straight on the legality and constitutionality of President Trump’s decision.

invasion1

As my readers know, I love the U.S. Constitution and consider it an inspired, sacred document. I consider it a very serious thing to violate its straightforward instructions and injunctions. However, President Trump’s decision to declare a state of emergency in order to once and for all secure our nation’s borders is not a violation of the Constitution or any moral law with which I am familiar. Indeed, President Trump’s decision to secure the border is actually a fulfillment of one of the most important of the Constitution’s promises to the states.

Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution promises: “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.”

The phrase “The United States” here refers to the federal government, of which the president is the chief officer – particularly in times of crisis and war. It is therefore a part of the president’s duty to defend the states against invasion, as well as insurrection, rebellion, and so forth, such as when President George Washington sent the military to put down the Whiskey Rebellion during his presidency. And please note that the Constitution does not specify what type of invasion is to be defended against.

invasion16

Invasion is defined by Google as “an incursion by a large number of people or things into a place or sphere of activity.” The trusty Webster’s 1828 dictionary gives us this more complete conception: “A hostile entrance into the possessions of another; particularly, the entrance of a hostile army into a country for the purpose of conquest or plunder, or the attack of a military force. . . . An attack on the rights of another; infringement of violation.”

Under either of these definitions, the crisis at our Southern border absolutely qualifies as an invasion. The influx of tens of millions of foreigners who do not speak our language, who are not here to assimilate, and whose first act in our country is a violation of our laws, cannot be considered anything other than an invasion. It is certainly “an incursion by a large number of people” into our territory. It is also a “hostile entrance” by foreigners and strangers “into the possessions” of American citizens. This hostile foreign element is invading both the private and public property of Americans and the states. And in far too many cases, American blood is spilled, American tears are shed, American property is stolen, and American citizens suffer.

Placing military forces on the border with either non-lethal deterrents or shoot-to-kill orders would halt the problem over night, making a wall unnecessary. But a wall is the order of the day. While I do not like the idea of living in a walled-in country, I would prefer to have a secured border with a wall than an unsecured border without one. In order to consider ourselves a truly independent, sovereign, and free nation, we must secure our borders and defend our People against the tidal wave of invaders flooding in from around the world. These invaders are changing the ideological, political, social, religious, and racial makeup of this nation – and not for the better.

invasion3

It almost goes without saying that the president cannot willy-nilly declare anything an “emergency” and then assume the power to “fix” it.  That would be a violation of the concept of enumerated and limited powers. It would be the very epitome of tyranny. However, what we are talking about in the present situation is not an arbitrary case. We are discussing the very security of the Republic.

As noted, the U.S. Constitution – the supreme law of the land and that sacred document which our elected representatives have sworn oaths to defend, uphold, and enforce – authorizes and directs the federal government to defend each of the fifty states in the Union against invasion from without. Since our Constitution directs the government to “protect each of [the states] from invasion,” and the influx of millions of foreigners which includes many criminals, rapists, human traffickers, and drug dealers meets every criteria to be called an invasion, the discussion should end there.

There is a faction in our society, however, that is anti-American and wishes ill to our country. They want to bring about the disintegration of our Republic, the corruption of our culture, and the destabilization of our unique system – the only system that poses a threat to their bid for global domination. This hostile group is a fifth column of Marxist traitors that are supported by Russia, China, and an international cabal of bankers, businessmen, and intellectuals. The domestic wing of this faction is aided in their attempt to weaken America by legions of dupes and brainwashed citizens.

invasion5

For the record, the Republican Party has sold out the United States regarding illegal immigration, too.

This dangerous group disregards the U.S. Constitution either because it stands in their way of converting America fully into a socialist state or because they have fallen for the carefully-concocted lie that the Founding Fathers were racist, bigoted, and primitive. When they consider the Constitution at all, they think of it as outdated and not applicable to today’s situation. So, for those who disregard the Constitution’s plain mandate to the federal government to defend the states against invasions such as those being launched from south of the border, as well as for those who misunderstand the Constitution, I cite one additional argument in favor of President Trump’s actions.

The great Thomas Jefferson, the most brilliant political mind in history, gave us an ideological gem when he wrote the following to John B. Colvin in 1810:

“The question you propose, whether circumstances do not sometimes occur, which make it a duty in officers of high trust, to assume authorities beyond the law, is easy of solution in principle, but sometimes embarrassing in practice. A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means.”

According to Thomas Jefferson, situations sometimes arise which demand a solution not strictly covered by law, or, indeed, in which no man-made law is sufficient. These include crisis situations – situations that threaten the fabric and stability of a nation. During these climactic events, a “scrupulous adherence to written law” would be suicide. Rather, the “laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger” are the laws which must govern us. Indeed, obeying these unwritten laws is a “higher obligation” than obeying written laws, no matter how well-crafted, well-established, or popular.

invasion11

To reiterate yet again, I love the U.S. Constitution and witness that the God of Heaven inspired the Founding Fathers to write it. It is the greatest political document in the world. And, thankfully, it covers situations such as that which faces us; namely, the dangerous blaze of chaos that is scorching America because the federal government has refused to uphold its end of the constitutional pact to protect the states from invasion. Yet, for argument’s sake, we also have the “laws of necessity” on our side.

Let me be clear, immigration is a great thing. But when a person immigrates, he must leave his former allegiances behind. When someone comes to America, he must do so with the intention to become an American and only an American. President Teddy Roosevelt once said:

“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all. This is just as true of the man who puts “native” before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance. But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as any one else.

“The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic. The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country. The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else” (Roosevelt, 1915, in David M. Kennedy and Thomas A. Bailey, The American Spirit: United States History as Seen by Contemporaries, Vol. 2, 268).

invasion6

In this case, we are not even talking about citizens – but subjects of foreign lands who have no right nor legal permission to be here. And it is clear by the actions of illegal aliens that their allegiance does not run to the U.S. flag. Rather, they come here in droves hoisting aloft the Honduran, Guatemalan, or Mexican flag. They speak their own language and huddle together in groups rather than assimilate. They trespass and break our laws as a matter of course. And why wouldn’t they? After all, they have no allegiance to our nation, our People, or our Republic. We must sympathize with those who desire to come here to escape the unrivaled plague of violence, drugs, and poverty that afflicts Latin America, yet, nonetheless, their actions prove that they are illegal, and often hostile, invaders who care nothing for our laws. And if they do not respect our laws, how can we allow them to come here? To do so is national suicide.

Furthermore, how can a nation respect itself and maintain its honor when it cannot defend its own people and protect its homeland? The American People are falling victim to savage drug cartels, human traffickers, and violent criminals for no other reason than that the Marxist clique in Washington, D.C. has deliberately prevented the enforcement of Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution. We are suffering because we have also disobeyed the basic laws of necessity and self-preservation, higher laws even than those codified in the Constitution.

One of the things our founding generation understood was that owning property is a sacred right. Personal private property is absolutely essential to Liberty. Without property there is no Liberty. But a nation’s home territory is also a special thing. If a people’s land is being invaded and taken over by foreigners who have not been welcomed in, who have not paid for the land, who have not made agreements to be there, whose ideology and worldview is contrary to the native population’s, and, whose intentions, in many cases, are hostile, then that people may take extreme action to defend itself and property.

invasion4

By any honest metric, illegal immigration is a massive crisis – a true national emergency. It is de facto setter colonialism aided and abetted by American traitors and foreign governments like the communist regime in Mexico. Let’s cite some basic facts to convey in a small degree the problem facing us.

According to many sources, Illegal aliens are three times more likely to commit crimes than American citizens. These invaders commit literally hundreds of thousands of crimes annually and at a higher rate than the native population. The number of illegal immigrants as well as Americans who are kidnapped, sold into slavery, and trafficked across the border is also staggering. Nearly 1/3 of immigrant women who attempt to enter the United States illegally are sexually abused, and thousands of American women are raped by illegals. For instance, in Oregon – which is certainly not a state bearing the brunt of the violent crime flooding across the Southern border – some two hundred immigrants (nearly 90% from Latin America) are currently incarcerated for rape. Multiply this across fifty states and you begin to see the problem.

From stealing $4 billion in tax refunds they are not entitled to, to facilitating the drug scourge that afflicts our nation, to bolstering the ranks of criminal gangs, to being the carriers of infectious diseases, to committing violent and non-violent crime by the hundreds of thousands, illegal immigrants are assaulting and deteriorating our nation. The crisis is so terrible that we are seeing anarchy and lawlessness in numerous locations. And though money is the least of our worries, illegal immigration costs hundreds of billions of dollars each year.

In light of these few facts, we must ask ourselves some hard questions: When is enough enough? When will we enforce the Constitution? When will we mobilize against the horde of foreigners invading our nation? When we will obey the laws of necessity and self-preservation? When is enough enough?

invasion12

Thankfully, President Donald Trump is trying to stop the flow of chaos across our borders. It is an already uphill battle further hampered by false allegations of Russian collusion, sabotage by members of his own government and cabinet, and a lack of comprehension of the problem by the American People. If we are serious about honoring our Constitution and protecting the states, we must enforce Article 4, Section 4. We must defend each state from invasion, including the invasion of tens of millions of illegal aliens who spit on our laws, dishonor our traditions, bring drugs and diseases into our land, abuse our People, and, all too often, act like parasites that drain the lifeblood out of our Republic.

Whether we bury our heads in the sand or open our eyes, a state of emergency in reality exists. It is not going away. That is, it is not going away unless we demand that it be fixed immediately. Whether we cite Article 4, Section 4 of the Constitution and demand that the federal government protect the American People and the states they inhabit, or whether we cite the laws of necessity and self-preservation Thomas Jefferson spoke of, the border must be secured or we will lose our nation. And we will lose it to those who do not care enough about our laws and heritage to come in the front door. Instead, like criminals they sneak through the back door, lie to get free goodies, and team up with cartels and coyotes to swindle us out of our birthright. This dangerous group of invaders must be stopped.

I applaud President Trump’s attempt to secure our border. He has blundered his way into it and has allowed what he calls “the swamp” to nearly engulf him, yet his intention is correct. And he stands on “solid legal ground” in terms of his ability to move to defend the nation. Whether out of legal obligations or the dictates of necessity caused by legitimate crisis, the border must be secured one way or another. If feelings must be hurt and foreign blood must be shed to save American lives, property, and wealth, and the integrity of our nation, so be it. God grant us the fortitude to do what must be done to plug the open sieve that is our Southern border that we may defend our People from foreign invaders. Secure the border. Stop the invasion. Save America.

Presidents Day

Today is Presidents Day. It is also, not coincidentally, the birthday of George Washington. From the glorious days of President Washington to the era of Donald Trump, the presidency has been occupied by a mixed bag of individuals. Some of been traitors and wolves in sheep’s clothing who sold out their nation and abused the U.S. Constitution and others have been honest, wise, good, faithful, and inspiring statesmen. This short article is written to commemorate and celebrate the memory of that small band of patriots who have occupied the Oval Office.

presidents1

On page 101 of the first volume of his phenomenal book series titled Leadership, Elder Sterling W. Sill wrote:

“This ability to fill ourselves and others with enthusiasm carries with it a great power of accomplishment. It is one of the most valuable abilities with which God has endowed us. But its value is still further increased because it is so rare. It is one of the potentialities which is often left undeveloped in men. there are many good men; there are many wise men; there are many industrious men. There are not many fire kindlers, not many fire carriers, not many who bring us sparks from the divine, even in a symbolic sense.”

Yes, there are many decent people, many who work hard, and many who have abundant stores of knowledge, but how few men are true leaders who possess the ability to inspire nations! How few are able to really inspire and stir our souls! How few can be called “fire carriers . . . who bring us sparks from the divine”!

Liberty3

Without question, the most important position of public leadership in our Republic is the office of president. People look (far more than they should) to the president for guidance – and not merely in politics, but in social, cultural, and moral issues. The president bears a tremendous burden to lead by his stalwart example, inspire with the soundness of his ideas, and kindle the fire of patriotism, virtue, and civility in his People with the moral force of his own character.

That most presidents have not lived up to this high charge is lamentable. However, a few good men have lived up to their duty and have been true leaders who inspired the nation. It is on this small band of Sons of Liberty that we focus today.

This article is not a list of good and bad presidents. I previously wrote a piece on that subject which you can find here. Rather, we seek to draw inspiring quotations from some of the great men who have borne the title President of the United States.

My favorite president was the Sage of Monticello, the great Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson gave us some of the most inspiring words ever penned by an American. It was Jefferson who wrote:

“I have sworn upon the altar of god eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.”

Jefferson3

It was this same super-patriot, whose lifelong devotion to Liberty is archetypal, who declared in the original draft of The Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independant, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these ends, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government, laying it’s foundation on such principles & organising it’s powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety & happiness.”

Surely few passages of text have ever inspired more people to noble sacrifice and heroic action than did The Declaration of Independence! The Declaration was the first bookend of the American story of Liberty. Yet, even before the Declaration was published to the world, Jefferson had made his views on Liberty and leadership public and plain. In “A Summary View of the Rights of British America,” Jefferson had written:

“The great principles of right and wrong are legible to every reader; to pursue them requires not the aid of many counsellors. The whole art of government consists in the art of being honest. Only aim to do your duty, and mankind will give you credit where you fail . . . The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time; the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them.”

Thomas Jefferson always put his nation first above his own leisure and desires. I was willing to sacrifice anything to ensure American Freedom. In a letter to John B. Colvin, he voice sentiments which show his devotion to the Republic. Said he:

“The question you propose, whether circumstances do not sometimes occur, which make it a duty in officers of high trust, to assume authorities beyond the law, is easy of solution in principle, but sometimes embarrassing in practice. A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means.”

Jefferson2

When we judge leaders, it is well to judge them, at least in part, according to whether they did all they could to ensure the security, sovereignty, Liberty, and happiness of America. I thank the Lord for men like Thomas Jefferson who, like the north star, still point out the course which our People may travel to arrive safely in the harbor of peace, Freedom, and happiness.

Another great man who occupied the White House was Andrew Jackson. Jackson was and still is hated by the Establishment because he took a stand against them and, at least in his day, thwarted their agenda to enslave this Republic. Jackson was rabidly pro-American. He was also the only president to eliminate the national debt and presided over a period of prosperity. And, notably, he spent much of his time trying to kill the insidious national bank and eliminate its poisonous effects on our nation.

Jackson1

In his First Inaugural Address, President Jackson stated:

“As long as our Government is administered for the good of the people, and is regulated by their will; as long as it secures to us the rights of person and of property, liberty of conscience and of the press, it will be worth defending; and so long as it is worth defending a patriotic militia will cover it with an impenetrable aegis. Partial injuries and occasional mortifications we may be subjected to, but a million of armed freemen, possessed of the means of war, can never be conquered by a foreign foe. To any just system, therefore, calculated to strengthen this natural safeguard of the country I shall cheerfully lend all the aid in my power.”

In his Farewell Address, and in the context of denouncing the “moneyed interest” which sought to dominate and strangle the nation, President Jackson reminded the American People:

“[Y]ou must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing.”

Jackson2

President James Monroe was another good man whose political views have helped guide and steer our ship of state for generations. In his First Inaugural Address, Monroe spoke of the need for the United States to stand up and defend itself against the encroachments of foreign powers in our sphere of influence:

“Dangers from abroad are not less deserving of attention. Experiencing the fortune of other nations, the United States may be again involved in war, and it may in that event be the object of the adverse party to overset our Government, to break our Union, and demolish us as a nation. Our distance from Europe and the just, moderate, and pacific policy of our Government may form some security against these dangers, but they ought to be anticipated and guarded against . . . We must support our rights or lose our character, and with it, perhaps, our liberties. A people who fail to do it can scarcely be said to hold a place among independent nations. National honor is national property of the highest value. The sentiment in the mind of every citizen is national strength. It ought therefore to be cherished.

“To secure us against these dangers our coast and inland frontiers should be fortified, our Army and Navy, regulated upon just principles as to the force of each, be kept in perfect order, and our militia be placed on the best practicable footing. . . .

“But it ought always to be held prominently in view that the safety of these States and of everything dear to a free people must depend in an eminent degree on the militia. Invasions may be made too formidable to be resisted by any land and naval force which it would comport either with the principles of our Government or the circumstances of the United States to maintain. In such cases recourse must be had to the great body of the people, and in a manner to produce the best effect. It is of the highest importance, therefore, that they be so organized and trained as to be prepared for any emergency. The arrangement should be such as to put at the command of the Government the ardent patriotism and youthful vigor of the country. If formed on equal and just principles, it can not be oppressive. It is the crisis which makes the pressure, and not the laws which provide a remedy for it. This arrangement should be formed, too, in time of peace, to be the better prepared for war. With such an organization of such a people the United States have nothing to dread from foreign invasion. At its approach an overwhelming force of gallant men might always be put in motion.”

Monroe5

Pursuant to these very ideas of national honor and self-defense against foreign despotism, it was President Monroe who established, with the advice and aid of Thomas Jefferson, the Monroe Doctrine. The Monroe Doctrine was designed, as Jefferson penned in a letter to President Monroe, to ensure that America:

“should therefore have a system of her own, separate and apart from that of Europe. While the last is laboring to become the domicil of despotism, our endeavor should surely be to make our hemisphere that of freedom.”

Under the Monroe Doctrine, Latin America was preserved for a time as a land of Freedom. Today, however, we have largely abandoned our role of defenders of this “hemisphere of freedom” and Marxism has infiltrated and taken deep root. We need only look at the communist “paradises” of Cuba and Venezuela to know how precarious the situation has become. Yet, President James Monroe charted our national course in this regard and it is our duty to steer the American ship of state back into safe waters that this hemisphere might truly become a hemisphere of Freedom once more.

Monroe4

We ought to cherish the memory of all the great men who have served as the first officer of our government – men like Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and Jackson. We need to rekindle and fan the flame of patriotism, piety, and Liberty those noble statesmen lit and carried in their day.

We also ought to support the efforts, however feeble and at times misguided, of President Donald Trump to “make America great again” and fight against the increasing threat of socialism. President Trump did not collude with Russia or communists, as lying and ignorant ideologues claim. He is also not cut from the same cloth as men like Jefferson and Washington. However, he is the first president in my lifetime to make a dent in the Establishment’s control over our Republic. More importantly than anything he has personally done in office, President Trump has inspired people to stand up, speak out, and be counted in favor of Freedom and traditional Americanism.

I pray to our Father in Heaven that the cause of American Liberty will prosper, that the modern Sons of Liberty will never lose hope, and that leaders will step forward to kindle the flame of Freedom in more American hearts. When we each do our part, however small, we help to pave the way for a future return to our true American heritage. We can begin our journey back to our roots of greatness when we remember those stalwart men who have gone before us who carried the torch of Freedom, who inspired the hearts of their countrymen, and who put the Republic and its preservation in happiness, peace, and Liberty above all else. God preserve our Republic!

Manipulation, NOT Collusion

For more than two years, we have been inundated with a non-stop flood of lies, libel, and slander regarding alleged “collusion” between President Donald Trump and Russia. The so-called Trump-Russia “collusion” amounts to one of the most egregious media hoaxes of all time. Without one iota of doubt, Russia is knee-deep in intelligence operations aimed at the United States and her agents of subversion are working around the clock to manipulate events inside the Trump administration and, truthfully, throughout the whole of our society. Yet, this fact notwithstanding, no credible evidence has come forth implicating Donald J. Trump as a knowing, witting agent of the Russian regime or any of its intelligence services.

Before I proceed, I want to make one thing plainly clear. I am the first to point out the grave threat of the communist conspiracy which still controls Russia and China and has its tentacles wrapped around the globe. In fact, nothing is more dangerous and imminently threatening to the world than communism. Communism is a ruthless cabal which never died, never weakened, and has never been in a more strategically advantageous position than it is today. I authored two books exposing this demonic conspiracy and its front groups and fifth columnists which operate in our nation and throughout the West. You can read more about my books here and here. And please listen to this episode of my Liberty Wolf podcast where I discuss the communist conspiracy.

communism43

That noted, to date there has been no credible evidence implicating Donald Trump as a knowing agent of Russian subversion efforts in the United States. I emphasize the words credible and knowing. To be sure, there has been a host of flimsy evidence, absurd allegations, weak inferences, lying testimony, and dubious intelligence reports. Yet, none of this links the man Donald Trump to foreign intelligence in any official capacity. And the meager evidence that does exist does not imply that President Trump is a witting accomplice in Russian subversion.

Also, please note that I am referring exclusively to Donald Trump and not to any of the individuals who worked on his election campaign or have served as his advisors. The media has made this about Donald J. Trump personally, and in President Trump the investigation into “collusion” must center. Therefore, this article is about President Trump and the suspicious characters who have lied about him.

In 2016, I wrote a number of articles for the Independent American Party criticizing Donald Trump for his serial adultery, constitutional illiteracy, and intellectual bankruptcy. I pointed out his profound lack of understanding of conspiracy and of the Constitution. President Trump has some business sense, but he has no political sense and zero grasp on who really runs this country and the methods they use to subvert elected representatives. He has bought into the false narrative that “communism is dead.”

Needless to say, I did not vote for President Trump. Never have I supported or voted for the Republican Party, to say nothing of the Democratic Party. Both Republicans and Democrats have worked in tandem for generations to undermine our Republic, destroy the Constitution, and subvert our culture. Yet, I feel duty-bound to speak out against the crusade to destroy President Trump on spurious grounds. A man should rise or fall based on his own actions and not because of false charges.

cartoons2

When the allegations first began to fly in late 2016, I kept an open mind. In fact, I have remained nearly silent on this issue for two years. The reason is that I have been reading and researching the arguments of both sides as I’ve made up my mind. To date, a list of the books I’ve read or perused alleging Trump-Russia “collusion” includes:

Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win by Luke Harding

The Plot to Hack America: How Putin’s Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election by Malcolm Nance

Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump by Michael Isikoff

Kompromat: How Russia Undermined American Democracy by Jeff Pegues

Trump/Russia: A Definitive History by Seth Hettena

Dirty Rubles: An Introduction to Trump/Russia by Greg Olear

The Assault on Intelligence: American National Security in an Age of Lies by Michael V. Hayden

House of Trump House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia by Craig Unger

Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff

In not one of these shoddy books have I found a coherent, fact-based, evidence-driven narrative. Each and every one drips with bias and blatant hatred for Donald Trump, conservatives, America, traditionalism, and the U.S. Constitution. Each bases its fables upon weak sources and impossible-to verify intelligence reports. And each admits the doubtful nature of the sources it cites, yet promotes the narrative all the same.

Russiagate11

For instance, Malcolm Nance, author of The Plot to Hack America, frequently appears as a contributor on the socialist news network MSNBC. He attempts to hide his painfully obvious activism behind his military and intelligence career. Yet, his conclusions are about as credible as MSNBC’s usual drivel. An example of Nance’s unbridled bias and blatantly Marxist worldview is found in the foreword of his book. In fact, it is in the first sentence of his book. He said:

“The 2016 presidential election was already surreal – a former real-estate TV host fueled by white backlash and had completed a hostile takeover of the Republican Party – before the bears emerged.”

Did you catch the two lies? First, Nance, a black man, betrays his clear Marxist perspective of race relations in America when he said it was a “white backlash” that brought President Trump to the forefront. This is a dishonest mantra repeated over and over and over by the controlled press. It is part of the carefully-concocted communist charade to foment discord between blacks and whites and portray conservative America as racist and bigoted. But it is all a lie – just like the notion that the “Civil Rights movement” was anything other than a communist front designed to incite civil war.

Next, it is a ludicrous idea that President Trump took over the Republican Party – an organization which has attempted to undermine his presidency at every turn. The GOP is a thorn in President Trump’s side and has not cooperated with him in the slightest. It was largely due to the Republican Party – the party that controlled both houses of Congress and the presidency during 2016-2018 – that the president finds himself in a quagmire of chaos in Washington. President Trump is not an outsider, but he is certainly not a lock-step Republican who now dominates the party.

Nance’s entire book is littered with the same lies, misrepresentations, and corrupt conclusions that disfigure his very first sentence. For example, before Nance even finished his preface, he had again race-baited and raised the specter of Nazism and white supremacy when he wrote that Russians “may or may not be disseminating Black propaganda” and then claimed Russia Today (RT) “has been used to co-opt the extreme wings of the American political parties including tacit and open support for neo-Nazis, anti-government extremist libertarians, conspiracy theorists, and the marginalized left such as the Green Party.” This is a thinly-veiled accusation that white, conservative Americans are nothing but racists, Nazis, and tin-foil-hat-wearing “conspiracy theorists.”

RT is indeed a disreputable source, but it is far from being a “neo-Nazi” organization. Rather, it is openly controlled by the very communistic Russian state. Neither RT nor the communist state apparatus are courting “Nazis” and spouting anti-black propaganda. Rather, communist agents, the controlled press, and provocateurs like Nance spew anti-white propaganda, equate whites with Nazism or white supremacy, and constantly engage in identity politics. It is the Marxist blueprint at play before our very eyes.

communism154

What’s more, Nance devoted a portion of the first page of chapter one of his book to take another swipe at “conspiracy theorists” He referred to “quack theories that usually involve the DNC and the Bilderbergs, [and] the faking of the 9/11 attacks.” This statement yet again betrays either Nance’s utter lack of understanding of reality or his utter lack of honesty. He dismisses legitimate conspiracies yet believes there is a Republican/Trump/Russian/Nazi (all synonyms in Nance’s vocabulary) conspiracy to discredit the poor, innocent Democrats. These libels continue throughout the book, such as when Nance claimed President Trump tweets “neo-Nazi and white supremacist comments” (13), that he routinely talks about “blunt, racially tinged conspiracy theories” (7), and that President Trump’s election “would spell the rise of fascism and end the two-century-long run of American democratic governance” (147). What total hokum!

One of the more hilarious statements in Nance’s book is found on page three:

“The Republican Party has shown an uncanny proclivity for taking an innocuous subject and by dint of repetition, inference, and outright false accusation making a seemingly innocent remark turn into years of acrimonious investigations.”

This, friends, is precisely what Democrats have done to President Trump for more than two years! This is a tactic called projection. It has been perfected by communists over many decades and is routinely employed by dupes like Nance. They project their own sins and crimes onto other people and, “by dint of repetition” through controlled press organs like CNN, MSNBC, and the New York Times, muddy the political waters and demonize innocent people.

Finally, if it weren’t already obvious, Nance’s bias is stunning. He hates President Trump but clearly loves Hillary Clinton. On page fourteen, he made the outlandishly false claim that there is “no evidence of corruption or complicity in criminality” on part of the Clintons. Really? How can an “unbiased” commentator like Nance make such patently absurd statements? The Clintons are one of the most corrupt couples in American history. Their laundry list of crimes includes murder, perjury, theft and destruction of classified documents – to name just four. But of course, Nance calls this a “Republican-manufactured conspiracy theory” (14).

How can anyone trust the conclusions of a biased political activist like Malcolm Nance? How can anyone read the drivel Nance writes in his books and listen to what he spews on MSNBC and think he is credible? Yet many do – even some so-called constitutionalists and conservatives who are desperate for any “evidence” that shows President Trump in a bad light. They hold up a political hack like Nance as an “objective” witness and swallow his toxic testimony whole. If you believe what Nance is peddling, you’ve been duped by a smooth snake oil salesman.

Malcolm Nance is not the only liar to write a book using phony evidence to claim Trump-Russia “collusion.” Luke Harding’s book Collusion is another masterpiece of disinformation and defamation. Character assassination is a useful tool in the hands of activists like Nance and Harding. While Nance compared President Trump and his supporters to Nazis, Harding used a long list of pejoratives to describe him. For instance, note this sentence on page 8:

“Putin was practically the only person on the planet to escape Trump’s sweeping invective, delivered in semiliterate exclamatory style via Twitter, at a time when most sane people were in bed.”

Let’s look at this sentence. First, we must note that Harding, in classic communist fashion, has attempted to label his opposition as “insane.” To him, President Trump is insane. Not figuratively, but literally, clinically insane. And “semiliterate,” to boot!

This has been a major thrust of the enemy in recent years. They have sought control over the psychiatric and psychology fields so that they can sit in judgement of who is “sane” and who is “insane.” They have pulled out all the stops to make traditional, Christian, constitutionalist America seem “insane,” “crazy,” and “out-of-control.” This is a coordinated attempt to discredit us and the Americanist way of life we support. To learn more about the enemy’s attempt to herd us into a veritable mind GULAG, read David Risselada’s phenomenal book Psychopolitics in America: A Nation Under Conquest. Or, to get the information directly from the horse’s mouth, read the Soviets’ vile Manual of Psychopolitics.

communism174

An applicable quote on the process of communist propagandizing in America is drawn from Risselada’s incredible book:

“[NKVD chief Lavrenti] Beria writes in the Manual of Psychopolitics that Russian psychiatrists fully understood than an acute sense of fear can create a hypnotic state of mind. He also says that this acute state of fear can be caused by “shock of an emotional nature” and the use of drugs. Is it possible that television, along with the high rate of psychotropic drug us, is causing Americans to live in a constant state of fear? A state of fear so emotionally overwhelming that it prompts them to simply go along and surrender their liberties willingly? . . . .

“There is also a concerted effort in the media to portray the American Right as right-wing extremists who pose just as much, if not a greater, threat to the nation as Islamic terrorism. This is done through a technique known as “Associationism.” Through the non-stop barrage of images involving terrorism and violence, the media slowly starts associating these images with the principles of conservatism until the mere mention of the word terrorist conjures up images of Americans decked out in para-military gear toting semi-automatic rifles. Right-wing groups, since the election of Donald Trump, have taken the blame for riots across the country even though they have been started by the Left to protest free speech on campus. . . .

“How much control the media can cast over the public’s perception is anybody’s guess. There is a mass movement on the political Right to expose fake news for what this chapter suggests it is, a propaganda campaign. Since the election of Donald Trump in November of 2016 the media has been in overdrive mode trying to confuse the public over allegations that President Trump colluded with the Russians to steal the election. Most of the country probably pays no attention; however, the politically polarized are trapped in a debate as to whether this really happened. There is no evidence whatsoever after the investigation of an appointed special counsel, but the media is still insisting something is going to come up. If anything, this keeps the people paying attention trapped in an ideological war and unable to identify what the truth is. The biased left-wing media continues to report unprovable allegations based on fallacious dossiers, and the ever-shrinking right-wing media responds and goes on the defensive. This is how we are controlled” (Risselada, Psychopolitics in America, 110-111, 113-114).

Russiagate14

The war on President Trump is, chiefly, a war on perception. Even though Donald Trump is not a true Christian and not a true constitutionalist, the Marxist media portrays him as such because they hate Christian constitutionalism. They hate America and resent the notion that a leader has rallied people to “make America great again.” They hate the fact that President Trump has emboldened a large segment of the more conservative base in America. They do not want the peasants to get the idea that they can rise up and fight back against the Establishment. Therefore, they must assassinate President Trump’s character and discredit him in the eyes of the nation in order to thwart the percolating uprising of traditionalist America – the heirs of the Sons of Liberty.

To spin their yarn about Trump-Russia “collusion,” the press latched onto a particular narrative which began with a particular dossier. Luke Harding, for instance, talks much about the Christopher Steele dossier. Steele is a former British intelligence officer who runs a private intelligence gathering business called Fusion GPS. In 2016, The Washington Free Beacon – a terrific news source that frequently exposes communism – hired Fusion to investigate Trump. The way Harding describes it, they:

“dropped out after Trump became the presumptive nominee. Senior Democrats seeking to elect Hillary took over the Trump contract. The new client was the Democratic National Committee. A lawyer for Hillary’s campaign, Marc E. Elias, retained Fusion and received its reports. . . .

“. . . From April, Steele investigated Trump on behalf of the DNC, Fusion’s anonymous client” (Collusion, 26-27).

Interesting, is it not, that the infamous Steele dossier which is held up as the smoking gun in this bogus “collusion” narrative was paid for by the Democratic National Committee? Is this not a conflict of interest? Is this not the epitome of bias? Even Harding admits the purpose of the contract was “to elect Hillary.” From nearly the beginning, Steele’s work was tainted with bias and cannot be considered the objective analysis of a neutral observer.

Furthermore, Harding explains that Steele’s investigation was hampered by the fact that he is officially banned from entering Russia. Consequently, he had to rely upon third parties for everything. Steele therefore admitted that even he could not rely upon or trust all the information in his own dossier! Harding gave us this gem on page 32 of his book:

“Steele recognized that no piece of intelligence was 100 percent right. According to friends, he assessed his work on the Trump dossier was 70 to 90 percent accurate” (32).

Would this hold up in court? In court you raise your right arm and swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God. You do not swear to tell “70-90% of the truth.” That would be preposterous. Yet, we are asked to take at face value the conclusions of a dossier in which the author admits only 70-90% is accurate!

Russiagate10

I suppose we should not expect anything else from biased activists such as these. Harding, for instance, takes every chance he can to praise President Obama, pretending that Obama was tough on Russia. Tough on Russia? Obama? Hardly! Perhaps Harding forgot that little slip of the tongue when Obama, believing the microphones were off, told Russian President Medvedev that after his election he would have more flexibility to cooperate with them. The evidence is overwhelming that Barack Hussein Obama was groomed from a young age to be a Marxist mole.

I highly recommend Cliff Kincaid’s book Comrade Obama Unmasked: Marxist Mole in the White House for evidence of direct Russian control of the White House through Obama. Obama’s administration was the epitome of true collusion, yet the biased social activists like Malcolm Nance and Luke Harding have nothing but praise for Obama and Clinton! This shows how worthless their analysis is and how gullible those who believe their testimony about Trump “collusion” really are. If you believe their nonsense, shame on you. It’s time to see the light.

Another common thread in the anti-Trump books cited is the use of words such as “appears,” “seems,” and “may.” The evidence supporting their claims is so slight and so flimsy that they cannot positively assert anything. Instead, they use doubt-inducing words like “appears” and “may have.” They expect us to lap up their lies like mindless dogs. As just noted, even Christopher Steele admitted that his dossier might be 30% false! Which 30%? Which statements are lies and which are allegedly true? If the author does not even know, how can the reader place one ounce of faith in his work?

It is impossible to know what is fact and what is fiction since Steele’s Russian sources are anonymous and he refuses to talk. Yes, that’s correct, his sources are Russian! The leftists and “conservatives” who lap up this propaganda are, in essence, putting their faith in a defunct British intelligence agent’s 70% accurate dossier compiled from information gathered from anonymous Russian sources living in Putin’s Russia! And we’re supposed to believe it! What a joke!

One of the ultimate tests of accuracy of any information is whether conclusions are given in a fair manner. If there is Russian interference in our political system, which there absolutely is, then report it fairly without regard to political party affiliation. Yet, the authors cited above have chosen to completely ignore Hillary Clinton’s verifiable collusion with communists, just like they ignored Bill Clinton receiving millions of dollars in funds from Red China, Obama’s buddy-buddy relationship with Russian leaders and convicted domestic terrorists, and so forth. Instead, they only focus on President Trump. If they were serious and honest, they would equally condemn Hillary Clinton and call for her prosecution. But the Malcolm Nance’s of the world are not honest. And people who believe them are deceived dupes.

Russiagate3

The collusion “investigations” – perhaps inquisitions is a better term – are tainted by openly biased individuals like Robert Mueller and Peter Strzok. If you have paid attention for more than five minutes, you know how unbelievably biased and thoroughly untrustworthy the rubbish these men produce really is. You know that they are Democratic Party operatives at best and Marxist provocateurs at worst. CIA officer John Kirkiakou recently made this comment:

“I know Robert Mueller and I know John Brennan, and this is what they do. They set out to ruin people. Russiagate . . . has nothing whatsoever to do with Russia, by the way. And none of these indictments have anything to do with anything. They’re what we call throwaway indictments. So, what you have is a man, Robert Mueller, who chooses a person, and then looks for a crime to hang on the person rather than discovering a crime and then investigating to see who committed the crime.”

Strzok1

Peter Strzok lying to Congress

Fired FBI agent Strzok, who served with Robert Mueller to investigate Trump’s phantom “collusion,” is another case in point. He was caught lying to Congress and attempting to cover up his tampering in the Hillary Clinton email investigation scandal. Texts from Strzok and fellow FBI stooge Lisa Page (with whom he was having an affair) during the 2016 election have come to light showing the extreme anti-Trump bias that has contaminated the Establishment’s inquisitions from the beginning. Page texted Strzok: “He’s not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” To which Strzok replied, “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.” Mueller helped cover up Strzok’s duplicity by destroying pertinent emails and texts that expose his bias.

Curious, is it not, that one of the main investigators into Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump so clearly loved Clinton and hated Trump and was determined to use his position in the FBI to thwart Trump’s campaign and exonerate Hillary for her crimes? Isn’t it also curious that this same turncoat, after President Trump won the election, then used his influence along with traitors like Mueller to allege Trump-Russia “collusion”? And isn’t it further interesting that the biased, lying conclusions of this man who was fired and removed from his position for his seething bias are still repeated by the mainstream media and duped anti-Trumpers everywhere?

In his abhorrent and ironically-titled book The Assault on Intelligence, the Bill-Clinton-appointed spook Michael Hayden holds up John Brennan, Jim Clapper, and James Comey, among others, as defenders of truth and whistleblowers in the Trump-Russia “collusion” myth. He praises Obama, bashes President Trump, assaults the memory of true patriots like Andrew Jackson, denies the proven fact that the Obama administration wiretapped Donald Trump, and generally displays ignorance and pro-Establishment bias throughout his entire book. In short, Michael V. Hayden is an extreme liar – perhaps a trait he learned from the men he holds up as role models.

Russiagate5

One of those men was James Comey, the former Obama-appointed head of the FBI fired by President Trump for his underhanded machinations and attempts to prevent justice relative to the Clintons. Comey is in many ways the epicenter of the entire Trump-Russia lie. Comey, we should note, is a communist. At least, he admitted he “was” a communist. What are the odds that this corrupt individual who lied to save Hillary Clinton from prosecution and implicate Trump in false schemes, both concealed and leaked evidence, and obfuscated official investigations into real corruption does not still harbor his communist views? He is not the only “former” communist lurking in government who alleges that President Trump colluded with Russia.

Russiagate12.jpg

John Brennan, head of the CIA from 2013-2017 when the Trump-Russia “collusion” fairy tale emerged, admitted that he voted for Communist Party candidate Gus Hall in 1976! Brennan is another man who is guilty of legitimate collusion with foreign entities. For instance, an April 19, 2017 article in The American Spectator titled “Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump” is very interesting. The article states that “John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election – Hillary’s.”

Russiagate13

Recall that Brennan is a communist who, at the height of the Cold War, voted for Communist Party head Gus Hall! Bolshevik Brennan, then, is one of the chief originators of the Trump-Russia “collusion” myth. Yet, even so-called “conservatives” eagerly take his narrative and run with it.

And what of the people Robert Mueller, lead inquisitor in this anti-Trump hysteria, has arrested in connection with his Trump-Russia probe? People like Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Jerome Corsi, and Roger Stone. Interestingly, none of them have been charged with anything dealing with Russia, so-called “collusion”, or President Trump. Instead, the charges range from tax evasion to lying to Congress – a far cry from the smoking gun on “collusion” we’ve all been waiting for. Furthermore, Mueller’s inquisition is becoming a KGB-style sting operation, as the recent CNN-broadcasted arrest of Roger Stone attests. It is sheer intimidation from a group of liars that have no evidentiary leg to stand on.

Russiagate1

What’s more, a recent BuzzFeed article reported a story which was picked up by national media outlets as “fact.” They reported a bombshell – Donald Trump told Michael Cohen to lie to Congress! The only problem with this story is that it is not true. Even Robert Mueller was forced to come out and publicly denounce the story as a lie, a fable, a fraud. Or, as Mueller’s office said: “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the Special Counsel’s Office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s Congressional testimony are not accurate.” Ergo, BuzzFeed, just like every other media outlet that reports Trump-Russia “collusion” as fact, lied.

Remember what I said earlier about projection? This is projection. The false reports of lying, election tampering, and “collusion” on part of President Trump and his team are lies. There is, however, overwhelming evidence that Hillary Clinton, her campaign, and Obama-appointed spooks and agents did knowingly collude with Russia, British intelligence, and other entities foreign and domestic to change public opinion, steal votes, cover up evidence, plant false evidence, and further undermine our nation. When known communists, communist sympathizers, and communist dupes spew the propaganda about Trump-Russia “collusion,” they are merely projecting their own duplicity onto the president.

Russiagate9

This is what it boils down to: Do you trust communists to tell you the truth? You are trusting in the word and testimony of communists like Brennan and Comey, and pro-Hillary, pro-Obama activists like Strzok, Mueller, and Nance, when you buy into the lie that Donald J. Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election and sell out our Republic. To believe this borderlines on delusional.

We must ask another question: Cui bono? Who benefited? Who benefited, or benefits, from this anti-Trump crusade? Who benefits from the false claims of Trump-Russia “collusion”? Oddly enough, Russia and her domestic allies are the primary beneficiaries of this propaganda. Let me explain.

The communists already know that they have Democrats, liberals, progressives, and Democratic Socialists in their corner. They were won over long ago. They are not a concern nor do they pose a threat to communist political hegemony in the United States. Therefore, constitutionalists, conservatives, and some Republicans are the only ones still resisting a full communist takeover. What better way to win over this segment of the population than by concocting an obviously false story about Trump-Russia “collusion”?

The idea is to make it so blatantly fraudulent that it discredits the notion of Russian interference and subversion altogether. It is a bait and switch – a Red herring designed to deflect blame away from the true source of chaos and conspiracy. Evidently, the ruse has worked. I have witnessed as the number of pro-Putin, pro-Russia “conservatives” has skyrocketed since 2016. Not only is the “Left” in Russia’s pocket, but now a large portion of “Republicans” dismiss Russia as a threat.

communism158

We must ponder another question: How would it benefit the Marxists to use their own controlled media outlets to expose the “truth” that would shut down and derail their own man? If Donald J. Trump was really, truly on their payroll, they would not use their media power to paint him as a tool of Russia. That is not how the communists work. It is illogical in the extreme to believe they would do this. Yes, communists are often found on both sides of the same question in order to foment chaos, but this is not the case here. No one is on President Trump’s side. Enemy agents have done nothing but attack the president, undermine his policies, manipulate his administration, arrest his friends, and rake him over the coals in public view for over two years. This is not the behavior of men who put Trump where he is.

My conclusion is that at this stage in the game you are at least partially delusional if you believe President Trump colluded with Russia. But what’s worse, you are dangerous. You are dangerous because by promoting this false narrative – a narrative invented and advanced by Marxists seeking to destroy this nation – you are promoting the dissolution of our government, the further undermining of law, order, justice, and due process, and are fomenting the hatred and discord that will lead to bloodshed and civil war in this nation. This is what the communists want! Chaos and infighting is what they need in order to conquer our nation once and for all. When you aid their efforts, you are aiding the downfall of your own nation.

Please, stand up against the communist conspiracy. Expose the evil agenda of the Marxists among us. Root them out and drag them into the light. Crush their movement into dust. But be very careful not to implicate people in this conspiracy who have taken no knowing role in promoting it.

Red Gadiantons cover second 2

The back cover art of my book “Red Gadiantons: What the Prophets Have Taught about the Communist Secret Combination that Threatens Mankind”

President Trump is the best president in my life time, yet he has been only mediocre. He has done some things well such as arresting a high volume of sex traffickers, ending TPP, withdrawing the United States from the bogus INF missile treaty, ending American involvement in the Paris Climate Accords, withdrawing our nation from UNESCO, slashing numerous bureaucratic statutes, trying to curb the invasion we call “illegal immigration,” etc. By contrast, he has continued the unconstitutional War on Terror (though he is finally withdrawing troops to a degree, which I applaud), been duped by the flattery and false promises of world despots like Kim Jong-un, reneged on several of his promises such as his vow to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her laundry list of crimes, unabashedly supports the despotic state of Israel, has been convinced to ban certain gun accessories, appointed Establishment insider Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, etc.

Most of his compromises and political mistakes are directly attributable to the fact that President Trump, lacking understanding of the cabal that rules behind the scenes, has unknowingly surrounded himself with members of that cabal! For instance, President Trump has appointed more members of the America-hating, foreign-originated, Fabian-Socialist-controlled Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) to his cabinet in the past two years than Obama did in eight. This is not, however, proof of conspiracy – it is proof of ignorance.

President Trump knows that he knows nothing about politics, which is why he surrounds himself with what he calls the “best” people. Unfortunately, the “best” people in Washington – those with the “best” credentials – are members of the conspiracy to destroy this nation. The president, not grasping this fact, continues to hire from this same elitist group. After realizing they are no good, he fires them and then chooses from the same pool of duplicitous candidates. It has happened so frequently that his cabinet is like a game of musical chairs. President Trump simply doesn’t understand the nature of the Marxist infiltration of Washington, so he continues to be manipulated by those he surrounds himself with and places his trust in.

For all his major character flaws and some of his political bungles, I have yet to see hard evidence that President Trump is a malicious individual. Misguided, immoral, and lacking in judgement? Yes. Conspiratorial, nefarious, and willfully evil? No. In Soviet terminology, President Donald Trump would be considered a dupe because he is fairly easily manipulated and doesn’t understand who his enemy is. He has unwittingly followed elements of the communist plan for the takeover of America. However, he has also delivered several setbacks to portions of that same plan.

conspiracy4

President Trump is being manipulated by those who surround him. He is isolated from sane voices and bombarded with constant propaganda and disinformation from his cabinet, from Congress, from his lawyers, and from the media. Because he has no moral compass, he lacks spiritual discernment. He knows there are problems, but he lacks comprehension of the enemy and the enemy’s tactics. He therefore allows himself to walk into their traps. Sometimes, however, he makes the right calls and defies his cabinet and thwarts elements of the communist plan. We ought to support him each time he does so.

In 2016, I described Donald Trump as a “puppet who doesn’t know he is a puppet.” In 2019, I believe the description is even more apt. President Trump is a stubborn marionette who has broken some of his strings, yet remains partially attached. Though he has maintained partial independence, he is still manipulated from above by what he would call “the swamp” or “the deep state.”

In truth, it is the communists in government that pull the strings – the “men without faces” that communist defector Louis Francis Budenz warned about in his superb book by the same title. They are livid that they do not control President Trump to the same degree they have controlled past presidents like Obama and Bush. As insider Newt Gingrich said, President Trump is hated because: “[H]e’s an outsider. He’s not them. He’s not part of the club. He’s uncontrollable . . . he hasn’t been through the initiation rites. He didn’t belong to the secret society.”

communism159

Donald Trump is certainly not an outsider. He has rubbed shoulders, as most big businessmen do these days, with shady characters – yes, even with Russian mafia in New York, as I noted in 2016. President Trump is an immoral man. He keeps bad company and misplaces his trust on a routine basis. However, there is, as yet, no evidence that he has belonged to “the secret society” or that he has been “initiated” into the communist conspiracy against mankind. Consequently, they have done their best to manipulate him through his cabinet, through media crucifixion, through painting him as literally insane, through false allegations of Russian “collusion,” through preposterous cries of “racism” and “Nazism,” ad infinitum.

If one day credible, hard, verifiable evidence emerges from worthy sources that implicates Donald Trump in Russian conspiracy, I will be the first to decry him as a traitor and call for his head. However, I refuse to join the chorus of voices denouncing the president based on flimsy, unverifiable, contradictory evidence put forth by known communists and openly biased political activists. To do so is intellectually dishonest. I will not and cannot side with communists and the Marxist media in promoting their narrative that President Trump is on the Russian payroll. And I am ashamed that so many people, even some of my friends who call themselves “anti-communists,” “constitutionalists,” and “conservatives,” have turned a blind eye to the shady sources of this “collusion” tall tale.

Those who parrot the false, unverifiable claims of “collusion” are furthering the enemy’s agenda to destabilize America. Do not call yourself a patriot if you repeat this communist claptrap. Do not pretend you stand against the conspiracy when you believe its mantras. Cease and desist taking your information from biased and lying sources like Malcolm Nance, Luke Harding, Michael Hayden, James Comey, John Brennan, Christopher Steele, or the mainstream media. If you have any political sense whatsoever, you know that the media is controlled by Marxists and that when you repeat their fibs you promote the communist conspiracy.

communism172

Do not be part of the problem. Stand strong against the barrage of lies. Resist the daily indoctrination of the controlled communist press. Repel the lies of provocateurs like Malcolm Nance who use their professional credentials to lie and to convince gullible people that Donald Trump is colluding with the Russian state while simultaneously holding up Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as innocent angels who never did a thing wrong. Don’t be part of the problem.

To finish, I repeat that what is happening is not collusion, but manipulation. President Trump, for all the good intentions he may or may not have, is morally and intellectually compromised. As such, he is a puppet who doesn’t know he is a puppet – a rebellious dupe who sometimes get some things right, but who is being undermined by everyone he surrounds himself with.

While collusion with communists is rampant in our government, the media, Hollywood, academia, and society, there has yet to come forth any credible evidence from uncontaminated sources that Donald J. Trump is knowingly working with the enemy. You need only open the nearest communist-controlled newspaper, media outlet, or web page to know that Donald Trump is not their man and that he has been targeted for systematic discrediting, character assassination, and undermining. Anyone who cannot see the truth at this late stage in the game is blind. “And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch” (Matthew 15:14).

Of all the times I have been blocked, had my pages and groups deleted, and had my content removed, this time was the lamest. Facebook is not allowing me to see which post it blocked me for, but I could see the commentary on the post in question. I wrote: “This made me chuckle. I thought it might make some of you laugh, too. Enjoy.” While I do not recall the precise post, I do remember it was a joke post. I believe I posted it several months ago on my Feminism is a Disease page – a fast-growing page with 3,412 likes and 3,559 followers as of this writing. Heaven forbid someone post an anti-feminist joke on Facebook!

Some people might immediately say: “Well, that’s tough luck. But Facebook is a private company, so they can do what they want to.” False. Facebook is absolutely not a private company. Facebook receives hundreds of millions of dollars in tax subsidies. In other words, Facebook receives hundreds of millions of dollars of tax payer money! And on top of this, they don’t even pay taxes. For proof of these facts, see this article, and this one, and this one.

Comrade Zuckerberg

To my sense of justice, the fact that Facebook (and Google, Apple, and other major companies) takes our money makes them a de facto public entity accountable to laws governing public speech. Yet, despite being funded by the American People – that is, by your tax dollars – Facebook believes they are above the law, and your opinions be damned.

Whether you choose to believe Facebook’s massive intake of public funds requires them to obey public laws is up to you. However, at stake is a bigger issue – the First Amendment. What is the First Amendment? What does it mean? What is its purpose? Why is it so tremendously important? And what is at stake when we allow publicly-funded entities like Facebook to censor legitimate speech that they simply don’t agree with?

first amendment9

The First Amendment was created to protect and defend the rights of speech and press, among other things. People were supposed to be able to say what they wanted to, within, of course, the reasonable limits of decency and decorum (for instance, you cannot yell “Fire!” in a theater, use sexual or profane language in public, or threaten someone’s life without consequence). But having the right to voice personal opinions on random topics is only one part – the less important part – of the First Amendment.

More than anything else, the First Amendment was a guarantee that the American People could always speak out against tyrannical government and hold their public representatives accountable. It was intended as a check on usurpation, lies, institutionalized corruption, injustice, and evil in high places. The First Amendment was not created so you could whisper your thoughts behind closed doors, but so that you could make your voice heard in the public arena. The First Amendment was designed, in short, to enable patriots to defend their nation.

first amendment8

The Sage of Monticello held such a high opinion of the rights of free speech and the press that he wrote:

“The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter” (Thomas Jefferson, letter to Col. Edward Carrington, Jan. 16, 1787).

Our government is based on, among other things, the sentiments and principles of the American People. The People is the source of political power. If they are to retain that power, they must safeguard their right to speak out. And elected representatives are duty-bound to defend that paramount right.

Another time, Jefferson asserted:

“The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to. It is necessary, to keep the waters pure” (Thomas Jefferson to Marquis de Lafayette, 1823).

And if those quotes were not blunt enough, Jefferson accurately declared:

“[O]ur liberty . . . cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press, nor that be limited without danger of losing it” (Thomas Jefferson to John Jay, January 25, 1786).

James Madison was of equal mind. From America’s revolutionary experience, he knew the importance of the right of the People to speak out against the abuses of their government, to publish and voice their thoughts, and to be included in the public dialogue. He said:

“[T]o the press alone, chequered as it is with abuses, the world is indebted for all the triumphs which have been gained by reason and humanity over error and oppression” (James Madison, Report on the Virginia Resolutions, January, 1800).

first amendment11

This famous quote might have more force when seen in context. The context was the infamous Alien and Sedition Acts instituted under the John Adams administration. The Sedition Act criminalized speech perceived as condemning the government at a time when national security was seen as precarious. Indeed it was precarious because of Jacobin agitation in the Union, but nevertheless it was an affront to the U.S. Constitution and to the rights of free speech, press, and conscience. Madison explained:

“In every State, probably, in the Union, the press has exerted a freedom in canvassing the merits and measures of public men of every description which has not been confined to the strict limits of the common law. On this footing the freedom of the press has stood; on this footing it yet stands. And it will not be a breach either of truth or of candour to say, that no persons or presses are in the habit of more unrestrained animadversions [criticisms] on the proceedings and functionaries of the State governments than the persons and presses most zealous in vindicating the act of Congress for punishing similar animadversions on the Government of the United States.

“The last remark will not be understood as claiming for the State governments an immunity greater than they have heretofore enjoyed. Some degree of abuse is inseparable from the proper use of every thing, and in no instance is this more true than in that of the press. It has accordingly been decided by the practice of the States, that it is better to leave a few of its noxious branches to their luxuriant growth, than, by pruning them away, to injure the vigour of those yielding the proper fruits. And can the wisdom of this policy be doubted by any who reflect that to the press alone, chequered as it is with abuses, the world is indebted for all the triumphs which have been gained by reason and humanity over error and oppression; who reflect that to the same beneficent source the United States owe much of the lights which conducted them to the ranks of a free and independent nation, and which have improved their political system into a shape so auspicious to their happiness? Had “Sedition Acts,” forbidding every publication that might bring the constituted agents into contempt or disrepute, or that might excite the hatred of the people against the authors of unjust or pernicious measures, been uniformly enforced against the press, might not the United States have been languishing at this day under the infirmities of a sickly Confederation? Might they not, possibly, be miserable colonies, groaning under a foreign yoke?” (James Madison, Report on the Virginia Resolutions, January, 1800).

In short, without the protection of what we sometimes call “First Amendment rights,” America might never have won her Freedom from British despots and the American People would have groaned under the yoke of foreign tyranny. Similarly, today we are beginning to groan under the yoke of Marxist-inspired political correctness and bureaucratic tyranny spewing forth from enemy-controlled D.C. We cannot afford to allow this to happen. This road leads inevitably to slavery and oppression.

People sometimes say, “Well, what if people are saying things that are wrong or offensive? How can we allow that? It is dangerous!” It is not our place to “allow” or “disallow” speech we disagree with, even if it is wrong (excepting, as noted, the reasonable restrictions). Thomas Jefferson wrote:

“It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others” (Thomas Jefferson to Benjamin Rush, April 21, 1803).

If you go down the road of blacklisting, banning, blocking, persecuting, and bullying people for speech that is not legitimately harmful but with which you simply disagree, the precedent will reach to you.

The great patriot Thomas Paine once made a statement which applies to today’s politically-correct culture where communist “hate speech” laws are proliferating and wreaking havoc on the First Amendment:

“An avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself” (Thomas Paine, Dissertation on First-Principles of Government, 1795).

If you value your right to voice your opinions, justice dictates that you must defend the right of others – even those you disagree with – to do the same. If you do not, you bear at least partial blame for the destruction of the First Amendment.

first amendment16

We are not a democracy; we are a Republic. But otherwise, great image.

To understand more about what is at stake when the Freedom of speech is restricted, we quote from another of our illustrious Founding Fathers. In a November 1737 article in The Pennsylvania Gazette, Benjamin Franklin wrote:

“Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. . . .

“. . . An evil magistrate intrusted with power to punish for words, would be armed with a weapon the most destructive and terrible. Under pretence of pruning off the exuberant branches, he would be apt to destroy the tree. . . .

“. . . The construction of words being arbitrary, and left to the decision of the judges, no man could write or open his mouth without being in danger of forfeiting his head. . . .

“Upon the whole, to suppress inquiries into the administration is good policy in an arbitrary government; but a free constitution and freedom of speech have such a reciprocal dependence on each other, that they cannot subsist without consisting together.”

Will we defend free speech and, thus, support our free governmental system? Or we allow the arbitrary system of social control that is being constructed around us to shackle us? We jeopardize all of our rights when we allow the government, activist groups, biased judges, the lying Marxist media, or vicious segments of our population to limit, curtail, or restrict our God-given rights of speech, press, and conscience.

Don’t think that Freedom of speech is limited to speech and the press alone. Rather, our most sacred rights of conscience and religion are wrapped up in the right of speech. James Madison put it this way:

“The freedom of conscience and of religion are found in the same instruments which assert the freedom of the press” (James Madison, Report on the Virginia Resolutions, January, 1800).

If the Freedom of speech is limited, our most precious right to worship God as we see fit will be in peril. Our right of free conscience will also be in danger of overthrow if we’re not allowed to vocalize the thoughts and desires of our soul. If you value either the right to worship your God freely or to express the feelings of your conscience, it is your duty to fight tooth and nail to defend the First Amendment.

first amendment6

John Adams once said: “Let us dare to read, think, speak and write” (John Adams, “A Dissertation on the Canon and Feudal Law,” 1765). In 2019, perhaps his statement should be amended to say: “Let us dare to read, think, speak and write – unless Facebook/Twitter/YouTube doesn’t agree with you” or “Let us dare to read, think, speak and write – unless the LGBT movement, radical feminists, or Black Lives Matter disagree with you.”

Our First Amendment is under serious assault. At least, the right of traditionalists, conservatives, and constitutionalists to speak out and defend or promote Christian values, moral principles, constitutionalism, Americanism, and truth is being curtailed in a major way. Our right to denounce the communist menace, publicize the truth about conspiracy, and point out the abuses of our government is also waning. Leading the charge in this politically-correct assault on logic, sanity, and tradition are the social media networks like Facebook and Twitter.

In the face of this tidal wave of peer pressure, Establishment oppression, and Marxist machinations against the sacred rights vouchsafed by the First Amendment, we must stand strong. We must defend the rights of others to speak if we value that right for ourselves. We must hold public institutions accountable for their violations of the sacred right of conscience and the right to vocalize our innermost feelings. If we are to survive as a free Republic, it is imperative that we push back the assault on our Liberty.

“Let us dare to read, think, speak and write.”

A Tribute to Caleb Strong

Caleb Strong is not a name familiar to most Americans today. Yet, this great man was one of America’s brightest Founding Fathers. He was a true luminary who played a huge, albeit forgotten, part in the early days of our Republic. For his birthday this January 9th, I want to pay tribute to this man by reminding people of the tremendous work he did for our nation and by sharing a few gems of wisdom from his brilliant mind.

Like many of our Founders, Caleb Strong began his professional life as a lawyer. He was a born-and-bred Massachusetts patriot who became intimately involved in political affairs as Massachusetts led the drive toward conflict with Great Britain and toward Independence. Strong came from Northampton, a town where his influential ancestor Elder John Strong once resided. I am proudly related to Caleb Strong through our common ancestor Elder John Strong – the first of the Strongs to settle in the New World. Caleb was faithful to his heritage and made a name for himself in his own day.

caleb strong3

In 1774, Strong was selected as a member of the Northampton Committee of Safety. Committees of safety, along with committees of correspondence, were extralegal political units that assumed governmental duties in the colonies during the immediate pre-war years and throughout the Revolution. In a real sense, then, Strong was part of the first free government of Massachusetts state.

Caleb Strong wore many hats. Not only did he belong to the Northampton Committee of Safety, but he belonged to the Massachusetts Assembly. There he was appointed – along with fellow patriot John Adams – to the committee that helped craft the Massachusetts Constitution. During this same formative period, Strong also belonged to the state house of representatives, the state senate, and took a position as a county attorney, holding it for 24 years while simultaneously filling many other public positions to be noted.

The achievement I am most proud of Caleb Strong for was his participation in the Constitutional Convention that framed the U.S. Constitution. I consider the Constitution a sacred, inspired document that bears the seal of approval of Almighty God. It is part of my religious creed every bit as much as the holy scriptures. I revere the men who crafted it under the inspiration of Heaven, which includes Caleb Strong.

Strong’s two most notable contributions to the Constitution included his support of the Connecticut Compromise and his motion to have all money bills originate in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Connecticut Compromise, in case you did not pay attention in history class, was the deal between representatives of big states and small states which ensured an equal representation in the Senate and a proportional representation in the House of Representatives. This “Great Compromise” was so important that Strong observed, “If no accommodation takes place, the Union itself must soon be dissolved” (in W. Cleon Skousen, The Making of America, 275). But with the efforts of men like Strong, a deal was struck that has become one of the hallmarks of our Constitution. Finally, the Origination Clause, or Revenue Clause, successfully promoted by Strong was an important feature that deepened the checks and balances built into our republican system.

Unfortunately for Strong, his signature is nowhere to be found on the Constitution because he was called home early due to sickness in his family. However, his participation in the historic Constitutional Convention should never be forgotten. And if his contribution in the cloistered Convention was not enough, then his outspoken support of the Constitution in the Massachusetts Ratifying Convention surely marks him as a fervent devotee of the document.

Constitution4

Under the new form of government, the states each elected two senators. Caleb Strong, respectfully called the “first citizen” by his associates, was one of the first two senators elected in Massachusetts in 1789. He was an enthusiastic supporter of President George Washington and counted himself a lifelong Federalist.

Later, in 1800, Caleb Strong was elected as governor of his state. In all, he served eleven terms as governor, demonstrating his popularity among the People. During his tenure as governor, Strong delivered many speeches and memoranda to the public and to the state legislature. I wish to quote a few lines from a powerful speech that epitomizes the wisdom of this man. This excerpt is taken from pages 136-138 of the book Patriotism and Piety, which is a collection of Strong’s speeches from 1800-1807.

On January 17, 1806, Governor Strong spoke to the state legislature and shared some sage thoughts on government, laws, the public, how tyrants come to power, and what it takes to maintain Freedom. He foreshadowed the lying promises of modern communists – their pipedream of “hope and change” – and the attempts of traitors to hoodwink the public in order to centralize political power in their own hands. He explained that the American People must be left in peace and not hampered by a multitude of laws and bureaucratic red tape. He spoke of the folly of giving up the tried-and-true institutions and policies of our ancestors in favor of so-called “new,” or what we would call “progressive,” programs. And he spoke of the absolute necessity for virtue in a free state. I would to God that every American could internalize these principles!

Thus, to the Massachusetts state legislature, Governor Caleb Strong declared:

“The unnecessary interference of government with the private concerns of the people, will always be a source of mischiefs; their understanding is competent to the direction of their own affairs, and, when left to itself, will generally lead to measures the most beneficial, both to themselves and the publick.

“Frequent alterations of the law are likewise attended with inconvenience, as they sometimes produce effects which were not foreseen, and occasion greater evils than they were designed to remedy. They tend to weaken the government by diminishing the confidence of the people in the stability of its councils: for uniform measures alone can preserve its reputation, or procure durable advantages to the State. It is of importance to, that the laws should be understood by the citizens; but, if they are often changed, they will not be understood, nor indeed will their real tendency always be known . . . It would, therefore, be unwise to substitute new and opposite system, until experience has proved, that those which are already in use are manifestly inconvenient. . . .

“Almost every nation, at some period of their existence, have enjoyed the privileges of a free State; but how few have preserved them! – they have been lost by the inconstancy of the citizens, or forfeited by their vices. In many republicks, repeated variations in the modes of government have taken place, as different parties happen to predominate, until the people became weary of changes, and preferred the quiet of absolute power, to the tumults of perpetual revolution. In the minds of some men, there seems to be a restlessness which renders them dissatisfied with any uniform course of things, and makes them eager in the pursuit of novelty; they abound in projects, and are ever meditating some fanciful change in the plan of government, which their imaginations represent as useful. But men of great ambition are still more dangerous; they commonly make the fairest pretences to principle, though they are actuated only by self-interest. If the constitution or laws of their country present obstacles to the accomplishment of their wishes, they employ every artifice to alter or abolish them; and, if individuals oppose their attempts, they are equally artful and solicitous to destroy their influence, and render them odious to their fellow-citizens.

“Few men, even in a prosperous community, are fully satisfied with their condition; a great part are easily induced to believe, that there is something wrong in the government or laws, which might be rectified to their advantage; they therefore readily embrace any specious proposal to effect an alteration. The crafty and ambitious know how to avail themselves of this disposition to change, and encourage their followers to expect, that the amendments they propose will perfectly suit their case, and produce the very blessings they wish; in this way, they not only effect their immediate object, but acquire an influence which enables them afterwards to accomplish the most destructive innovations. Such persons encourage hopes, that can never be realized, and excite complaints, which the most wise and benevolent administration is unable to remove.

“Indeed, we are generally apt to ascribe too much to the efficacy of laws and government, as if they alone could secure the happiness of the people; but no laws will be sufficient to counteract the influence of manners which are corrupted by vice and voluptuousness; and it is beyond the power of any government to render the circumstances of the citizens easy and prosperous, if they want the habits of industry and frugality. – Government is necessary, to preserve the public peace, the persons and property of individuals; but our social happiness must chiefly depend upon other causes; upon simplicity and purity of manners; upon the education that we give our children; upon a steady adherence to the customs and institutions of our ancestors; upon the general diffusion of knowledge, and the prevalence of piety and benevolent affections among the people.

“Our forms of government, are, doubtless, like all other institutions, imperfect; but they will secure the blessings of freedom to the citizens, and preserve their tranquility, as long as they are virtuous; and no constitution, that has been, or can be formed, will secure those blessings to a depraved and vicious people.”

What wisdom and foresight! My heart beats proudly to know that I am related, however distantly, to such a man as Caleb Strong. He was a true patriot and the epitome of a Son of Liberty. If Americans today internalized the principles contained in this short excerpt, our nation would experience a revival and we could save our Republic.

I give my own political witness that Caleb Strong’s words are accurate. Indeed, they are timeless. Unless we want to barter away the rest of our Freedoms, as we have done now for over a century, we must cling to the right institutions of our ancestors, never trust or follow traitors who offer false promises when in reality they merely seek power, and reform our habits and morals and manners. If we do these things, we can save our Republic. Strong knew whereof he spoke – he lived through the American Revolution. He understood what it takes to found a mighty nation. And the same principles that founded America can save her.

Along with his fellow Founding Fathers, Caleb Strong helped craft a blueprint for national success – the U.S. Constitution. We must learn it, cling to it, and defend it. We must become a virtuous People. We must develop discernment so that we might see through the lies of communists in sheep’s clothing who offer us the world in exchange for our sovereignty, our rights, and our power. We must be vigilant even when life is tumultuous. Nothing good ever happens without sacrifice. We must be willing to stand up and be counted, and to sacrifice anything we need to, in Liberty’s cause.

caleb strong2

I proudly stand with Caleb Strong, this wonderful Founding Father. I pray that his name will no longer be forgotten, but that it will be remembered alongside the noble names of Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Franklin, and Henry. I honor him and his legacy.

May we come to echo Caleb Strong’s wish “that we may unitedly pay our grateful and affectionate homage to the Author of all good, for His distinguishing kindness to our forefathers, and to us; in providing them a refuge from oppression, and protecting them when surrounded with innumerable dangers; in blessing them with civil liberty and the light and influence of the gospel, and disposing them to nurture their posterity in the love of learning, virtue and rational freedom” (Patriotism and Piety, 23). If we turn our hearts to the Lord and follow in the footsteps of our honorable forebears, men like Caleb Strong, our nation will once again become a refuge of law and Liberty, a haven of peace and stability, and a beacon of light to the darkened world.
