In Support of the President’s Use of Domestic Military Force

Turn on any TV and you’ll see scenes of destruction, lawlessness, and violence being played out from coast to coast. Organized mobs are brutally attacking police and random citizens, injuring dozens and leaving several dead. They’ve started hundreds of fires, destroyed businesses, looted stores, threatened to rampage through the suburbs, graffitied national monuments, and clashed with Secret Service at the White House. Our Republic is in the grip of a cleverly-orchestrated revolt.

Minneapolis-riot

The malevolent forces behind this revolt are the Marxists and their front groups such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter. To his credit, President Donald Trump has mobilized the military to put down this savage insurrection. The goal of this article is to explain the constitutional and moral justifications for calling in the military to restore law and order and to punish the renegades, and to demonstrate why the riots are not spontaneous events but part of a larger agenda.

On June 1, President Trump delivered a speech at the White House. To me, it was the greatest speech he’s yet given. I quote it nearly in full to contextualize my remarks:

“I am your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters. But in recent days our nation has been gripped by professional anarchists, violent mobs, arsonists, looters, criminals, rioters, Antifa, and others. A number of state and local governments have failed to necessary action to safeguard their residents. Innocent people have been savagely beaten like the young man in Dallas, Texas who was left dying on the street or the woman in upstate New York viciously attacked by dangerous thugs. Small business owners have seen their dreams utterly destroyed. New York’s finest have been hit in the face with bricks. Brave nurses who have battled the virus are afraid to leave their homes. A police precinct has been overrun. Here in the nation’s capital, he Lincoln Memorial and the World War II Memorial have been vandalized. One of our most historic churches was set ablaze. A federal officer in California, an African American enforcement hero, was shot and killed.

“These are not acts of peaceful protest. These are acts of domestic terror. The destruction of innocent life and the spilling of innocent blood is an offense to humanity and a crime against God. America needs creation, not destruction; cooperation, not contempt; security, not anarchy; healing, not hatred; justice, not chaos. This is our mission and we will succeed. 100% we will succeed. Our country always wins.

“That is why I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America. I am authorizing all available federal resources civilian and military to stop the rioting and looting, to end the destruction and arson, and to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans including your Second Amendment rights. Therefore, the following measures are going into effect immediately:

“First, we are ending the riots and lawlessness that have spread throughout our country. We will end it now. Today I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets. Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled. If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.

“I am also taking swift and decisive action to protect our great capital, Washington, D.C. What happened in this city last night was a total disgrace. As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property. We are putting everybody on warning our 7 o’clock curfew will be strictly informed.

“Those who threaten innocent life and property will be arrested, detained, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and lengthy sentences in jail. This includes Antifa and others who are leading instigators of this violence.

“One law and order. And that is what it is. We have one beautiful law. And once that is restored and fully restored, we will help you, we will help your business, and we will help your family. America is founded upon the rule of law. It is the foundation of our prosperity, our freedom, and our very way of life. But where there is no law, there is no opportunity. Where there is no justice, there is no liberty. Where there is no safety, there is no future.

“We must never give into anger or hatred. If malice or violence reigns, then none of us is free. I take these actions today with firm resolve and with true and passionate love for our country. By far our greatest days lie ahead.”

I don’t often say this about a political speech, but in this excerpt, every word is accurate. I endorse it in full. But just what am I endorsing?

To begin with, President Trump correctly refuted the idea that what’s happening are “peaceful protests.” He gave multiple examples of the violence, destruction, and murder that’s occurring. He could have given thousands more. The controlled media has pushed the false narrative that this is all “peaceful,” even as cities burn, people lose their life savings, stores are looted, rioters threaten to “kill white people,” people are assaulted, police cars and offices are torched, and so on. At least 23 states have now activated their National Guard, yet this is supposedly a “peaceful” event!

President Trump correctly described the anarchy as “domestic terror.” Antifa, one of the radical Judeo-Marxist organizations spearheading the riots, has a 10-point plan to cause enough chaos to effect regime change. To give you a flavor of their scheme, I quote two proposals. Point #2 threatens: “We will destroy the state, police, military, corporations and all those who run the American plantation.” And point #10 says: “Liberation begins where America dies.”

Suffice it to say, I was ecstatic three days ago when when the president designated Antifa a “terrorist organization.” I’ve advocated doing that for years. In fact, I propose labeling all openly Marxist organizations, political parties, and publications as terroristic and/or subversive and formally outlawing them and rounding up their members. More on that later.

The president went farther by pointing out that not only is the violence “domestic terror,” but that it is being orchestrated by “professional anarchists.” He put “the organizers of this terror . . . on notice” and referred to Antifa thugs as “leading instigators of this violence.” It is perfectly accurate to say that these riots are not organic or spontaneous. They were pre-planned and only needed the right pretext to set them in motion.

Is there evidence that the riots are being formally organized by malevolent organizations? Yes there is. The evidence is of two sorts – real and theoretical. First, protesters in multiple locations have been caught with printed instructions for how to cause violence and whom to call for bail if arrested. BuzzFeed and Vox, among others, have published online guides for how to protest. BuzzFeed posted a 19-point guide, which included the tip: “Wear clothing that covers tattoos, discernible scars, and birth marks that could be used to identify you.” And Joe Biden’s campaign has been busy bailing Minneapolis rioters out of jail, thus sanctioning the violence.

Mayor Melvin Carter of St. Paul stated several days ago that every person who had at that point been arrested in connection with the riot was non-local. They had traveled to the hot spot to engage in and incite violence. The police chief of Minneapolis likewise said that the core group of thugs who kicked off the melee were not local residents, but had arrived from other locations. In Richmond, Virginia, Police Chief Will Smith recounted the following:

“Last night, protesters intentionally set a fire to an occupied building on Broad Street. This is not the only occupied building that has been set fire to over the last two days, but they prohibited us from getting on scene. We had to force our way to make a clear path for the fire department. Protesters intercepted that fire apparatus several blocks away with vehicles and blocked that fire department’s access to the structure fire. Inside that home was a child. Officers were able to help those people out of the house. We were able to get the fire department there safely.

“. . . We have people from across the country who have traveled many states to be here. We know that this is an organized effort. We’re committed to try and identify those that are behind it. And we’re doing our very level best to arrest those that are perpetrating the violence on our community, and our city, and our citizens.”

Here we have more out-of-staters coming into an area and coordinating violence against the population. Can anyone doubt that the various riots are planned and directed from above?

Furthermore, a strange video showed a man in a mask walk up behind a crowd, smash out store windows, and calmly walk off. Another short video showing a bedraggled hippie paying rioters and directing their operations has also come to light. From Kansas City to Baltimore to New York City, piles of bricks for rioters to throw have also been mysteriously showing up in countless locations, strategically located near high-end stores and places where they can inflame passions the most. An article in The Most Important News (TMIN) noted that some of the anarchist groups are using networks of bicycle scouts to communicate with rioters on the ground and direct their operations. TMIN also cited police reports from Minnesota where “several caches of flammable materials” had been found in various neighborhoods, having “been planted days ago and some only in the last 24 hours.”

Foreign intervention has similarly been uncovered. While writing this, news broke that FBI agents in several locations have arrested groups from Venezuela, Cuba, Haiti, and Honduras for paying thugs to create violence during the riots. An investigator in the FBI sting operation told the news: “There are definitely individuals associated with Venezuela who paid trips to people to various cities in the United States to promote chaos.” The article carrying this story noted:

“Several of the detainees are residents of the Miami area known as Little Haiti, who participated in the riots in downtown Miami between Friday and Saturday, the source said.

“Activists marching with the flag of the Sandinista National Liberation Front, the party of Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega, also participated in the demonstrations.”

plaza_19-7-2017_19.jpg_1718483346

The Sandinista National Liberation Front is a well-known Soviet front organization founded during the Cold War for the promotion of socialism in Nicaragua. It’s no surprise that the revolutionary Marxist Sandinistas are participating in the communist-inspired riots alongside Antifa and others of like ideology.

Some in the media are accusing Russia of involvement in the rioting, while others on the “conservative” side are calling this accusation “fake news.” Yet, is it really “fake news” when you consider that Russian proxy states like Cuba and Venezuela, and Russia-supported groups like the Sandinistas, are being caught red-handed financing rioters? It was an acknowledged Soviet tactic to do their dirty work (terrorism, assassination, drug smuggling, etc.) through proxy states so they could claim their hands were clean. They continue to use the tactic to this day. Similarly, the Red Chinese have openly said the rioting is a “beautiful sight to behold.” China has also invested billions of dollars in radicalizing American youth, especially on university campuses. You can be sure that time will reveal more Russian and Chinese fingerprints on these violent riots.

All of these things demonstrate that paid professional provocateurs are being used to cause chaos, inflame tensions, and whip up clashes with police. Rioters are being provided with the fuel – sometimes literally – to continue their rampaging. Justice is being denied by people with deep pockets bailing out the criminals. The mark of prior planning and coordinated action is obvious to see.

The next kind of evidence is theoretical. That is to say, these riots follow a distinct pattern. They play out according to a well-crafted script. This script is used again and again. It’s such a distinct program that it’s immediately recognizable. This script was used to pull of the Kent State Massacre false flag, which I recently wrote about. It was used more recently in the Occupy Wall Street and Ferguson riots. It’s the same blueprint set down by the communists and implemented by a professional cadre of revolutionaries whenever the pretext presents itself (or can be made to appear).

In my article “George Floyd and the Scourge of Black Criminality,I quoted several statements explaining the communist blueprint for insurrection. Today, I briefly refer to them, expand on one observation, and add an additional quotation. First, the Russian immigrant author Alexander Markovsky succinctly summarized the Bolshevik playbook for revolution:

“Lenin was a master at taking advantage of chaos. He believed that crises create opportunities for change, or, in his mind, revolution. “Our task,” Lenin wrote in 1902 in What Is to Be Done, “is to utilize every manifestation of discontent, and to collect and utilize every grain of rudimentary protest.” Indeed, if you want to change a society, here is Lenin’s script: cause the problem. Spread the misery. Send a cadre of professional community organizers to unite all of the angry and disinherited spirits to fuel an organized revolt. Entice chaos and violence. Exploit chaos for larger political objectives. Blame your political opponents, demonize and criminalize them. Move decisively to request a temporary suspension of civil liberties in exchange for the restoration of law and order. Usurp power before the deceived masses realize that there is more permanent in politics than something temporary. . . .

communism449

“Taking advantage of a crisis has always been a strategy for extremists to make fundamental changes in society. . . .

““Never allow a crisis to go to waste,” former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel told the New York Times, echoing Lenin and Strasser” (Alexander G. Markovsky, Liberal Bolshevism: America Did Not Defeat Communism, She Adopted It, 28).

Crisis, reaction, solution. That’s the way the Marxist Elite operate. They cause a crisis, they manage and steer the public’s reaction to the crisis, and then they offer a “solution” that will benefit their agenda. In other words, they make people’s lives miserable and then rush in with “solutions,” posing as the savior. They run the same script over and over, as many times as necessary to construct their communist monopoly piece by piece.

Ezra Taft Benson referred to this tactic in 1967 when, in the midst of the communist-controlled Civil Rights Movement, he warned:

“As far back as 1928, the Communists declared that the cultural, economic, and social differences between the races in America could be exploited by them to create the animosity, fear, and hatred between large segments of our people that would be necessary beginning ingredients for their revolution.

“Briefly, the three broad objectives were and are as follows:

1. Create hatred

2. Trigger violence

3. Overthrow established government. . . .

“Police and National Guard units will never be adequate to handle such widespread anarchy, especially if a large part of our men and equipment are drained away in fighting foreign wars. In self-defense, larger numbers are brought into fighting on both sides. The appearance of a nationwide civil war takes form. In the confusion, potential anti-Communist leaders of both races are assassinated, apparently the accidental casualties of race war.

Civil Rights Confrontation

“Time the attack to coincide, if possible, with large-scale sabotage a water supplies, power grids, main rail road and highway arteries, communication centers, and government buildings With fires raging in every conceivable part of town, with wanton looting going on in the darkness of a big city without routine police protection, without water to drink, without electrical refrigeration, without transportation or radio or TV, the public will panic, lock its doors in trembling fear, and make it that much easier for the small but assembled and fully disciplined guerrilla bands to capture the power centers of each community. Overthrow the government! After complete control is consolidated (and that may take many months, as in Cuba), only then allow the people to discover that it was a Communist revolution after all. . . .

“In such countries as Czechoslovakia, the Communists have used an entirely different method of internal conquest. Instead of the force and violence of a bloody revolution (a “war of national liberation”), parliamentary and political means were used to bring about a more peaceful transition to Communism. The Communist strategists call this alternate plan a “proletarian” revolution.

“This plan is as follows: Using unidentified Communist agents and non-Communist sympathizers in key positions in government, in communications media, and in mass organizations, such as labor unions and civil rights groups, demand more and more government power as the solution to all civil rights problems. Total government is the objective of Communism. Without calling it by name, build Communism piece by piece through mass pressures for presidential decrees, court orders, and legislation that appear to be aimed at improving civil rights and other social reforms. If there is social, economic, or educational discrimination, then advocate more government programs and control.

“And what if riots come? Then more government housing, government welfare, government job training, and, finally, federal control over police. Thus the essential economic and political structure of Communism can be built entirely “legally” and in apparent response to the wishes of the people who have clamored for some kind of solution to the problems played-up, aggravated, or created outright by Communists for just that purpose. After the machinery of Communism is firmly established, then allow the hidden Communists one by one to make their identities known. Liquidate first the anti-Communists and then the non-Communist sympathizers who are no longer needed in government. The total state mechanism can now openly and “peacefully” be transferred into the hands of Communists. Such is the so-called proletarian revolution. Such has happened in other, once free, countries. It has already started here.

“The Communists are not entirely certain whether force and violence or legal and political means or a combination of both would be best for the internal conquest of America. At first, there was talk of splitting away the “Black Belt,” those southern states in which the Negro held a majority, and calling them a Negro Soviet Republic. But, as conditions changed and more Negroes migrated to the northern states, they applied this same strategy to the so-called ghetto areas in the North. It now seems probable that the Communists are determined to use force and violence to its fullest, coupled with a weakening of the economy and military setbacks abroad, in an effort to create as much havoc as possible to weaken America internally and to create the kind of psychological desperation in the minds of all citizens that will lead them to accept blindly the application of legal and political means as the final blow.”

There’s a lot to consider here and the full address is even more powerful, but the key takeaway is that the communists have always planned to use riots – particularly race riots – to create chaos in which they can come to power. If enough chaos can be created and sustained, they may be able to give the system a shove and topple it altogether and come to power. But more than likely, it will take many attempts and so they settle for causing crisis after crisis, and each time enacting more and more restrictive legislation. Eventually, by hook or by crook, the communist revolutionaries hope to demoralize, confuse, and conquer America. The current riots are a part of that overall strategy.

BI6A0286-1

I quote one more important statement from Benson. In 1963, Benson explained different methods the communists have planned to capture the United States:

“There are three possible methods by which the Communists might take us over. One would be through a sufficient amount of infiltration and propaganda, to disguise Communism as just another political party.

“The second method would be by fomenting internal civil war in this country, and aiding the communists’ side in that war with all necessary military might.

“The third method would be by a slow insidious infiltration resulting in a takeover without the American people realizing it.

“The Soviets would not attempt military conquest of so powerful and so extensive a country as the United States without availing themselves of a sufficiently strong fifth column in our midst, a fifth column which would provide the sabotage, the false leadership, and the sudden seizures of power and of means of communication, needed to convert the struggle, from the very beginning, into a civil war rather than clear-cut with an external enemy.

“We can foresee a possibility of the Kremlin taking this gamble in time. In fact, it is clear that the Communists long ago made plans to have this method available, in whole or in part, to whatever extent it might be useful. The trouble in our southern states has been fomented almost entirely by the Communists for this purpose. It has been their plan, gradually carried out over a long period with meticulous cunning, to stir up such bitterness between the whites and blacks in the South that small flames of civil disorder would inevitably result. They could then fan and coalesce these little flames into one great conflagration of civil war, in time, if the need arose” (Ezra Taft Benson, “We Must Become Alerted and Informed,” speech, December 13, 1963).

I trust you can see that the communist playbook of old is being used right now, this very day, in the mass riots across our nation. The Red blueprint is being implemented precisely as drawn up. Lenin’s old script is being used yet again. Whether the average thug rioter knows it or not, he’s playing a part in the Bolshevik conquest of America. Whether the average Black Lives Matter dupe admits it, he’s cannon fodder for this final communist revolution.

Political commentator Dan Bongino was quick to point out that the rioting did not begin spontaneously. He observed:

“This is not some run-of-the-mill criminality by people who have nothing to do on a Saturday night. Yes, there are some people there who are just there to cause trouble. This is a sophisticated insurrection-type attack. This is not a joke.”

1591094462979

Bongino also said:

“This isn’t a protest anymore, this is a coup. This is an organized internal coup by a small group of agitators acting as a domestic terror group. That’s a fact.”

It is a fact. Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other organizations are teaming up in a coordinated effort to cause mayhem, bring our government to a screeching halt, and prepare the way for a regime change – a regime that that would, ironically, ruthlessly prohibit the sort of rioting these people are engaged in.

To fight these domestic terrorists, President Trump has called up the military. In particular, the famed 82nd Airborne Division of the U.S. Army is heading Washington, D.C. and possibly Minnesota to put an end to the outlawry. Tens of thousands of National Guard troops have been activated. Numerous other federal personnel are joining the fight to suppress this Marxist uprising. Fortunately, this is not “the big one” and we should be able to bring things to a speedy conclusion. Unfortunately, this is a shadow of worse things yet to come.

Now I will address the constitutional and moral justifications for using military force domestically. This is necessary because people on both sides are calling President Trump’s move an overreach, a usurpation, and even an act of tyranny. The perpetual Trump-haters call anything the president does “tyrannical.” Their knee-jerk reactions don’t matter. I’m addressing my words to those who love America, my fellow constitutionalists and conspiracy researchers, and patriots everywhere.

As soon as the word broke that President Trump was calling up the military, people began citing the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878. Posse comitatus is a Latin term meaning “force of the country.” The Encyclopaedia Britannica describes the function of posse comitatus as an “ancient English institution consisting of the shire’s force of able-bodied private citizens summoned to assist in maintaining public order. Originally raised and commanded by the sheriff, the posse comitatus became a purely civil instrument as the office of sheriff later lost its military functions.”

The Act in question essentially states that the military will not be used to enforce domestic laws. The context of this Act is important, however. After Lincoln’s war against the Confederacy, the South was occupied by the Union Army. The Army served as a police force. Eventually, it was necessary to end the military occupation and restore civilian control of the Southern states. Posse Comitatus was passed to accomplish this. Today, many are invoking Posse Comitatus to claim President Trump is overstepping his authority by using the military to ensure law and order.

America271

I would ask, whence does the president derive his authority? From the Posse Comitatus Act? No. He gets his authority from the American People by virtue of the Constitution which he swears an oath to uphold and defend.

The Constitution is our national creed. It’s what binds us together as Americans. It’s the “cement of the Union,” as James Madison called it (James Madison, First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1809). The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land and in its sphere it trumps all state and local laws. Indeed, even federal laws are only valid if they conform to the principles of the Constitution.

The Declaration of Independence proclaimed:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

The purpose of the Constitution, therefore, is to limit government in such a way as to protect individual rights; that is, our lives, our Liberty, our property, and so forth. More explicitly, the Bill of Rights defends our right of self-defense, our right to peaceably assemble, our right to privacy, our right to jury trial, our right to freely worship God, our right to have our property protected, and so on. The entire purpose of the U.S. government is to do secure our rights and defend us from those who would violate them.

To defend our rights, the Constitution has certain mechanisms. One is the Supremacy Clause which ensures that no state or local laws can ever justly violate the Constitution and another is the president’s oath of office which states that his sole job is to uphold the Constitution.

The most common sense idea is that the president, as the chief officer of the federal government, has the ultimate responsibility to ensure that the rights of Americans everywhere are being protected. It only makes sense that if a state decided to curtail its people’s right of worship, for instance, the federal government – headed by the president – could, and should, step in and correct this flagrant abuse of God-given rights. Who will protest this fact? I believe only one who doesn’t understand the purpose and necessity of a general government can deny the president his just right to defend the American People from abuse, even if must use military force.

What’s more, I would ask: If the federal government doesn’t have the authority to compel obedience to the Constitution, then why does it exist? If it doesn’t possess the authority to compel obedience to just laws, then it’s a dead letter – a useless instrument that should be tossed on the ash heap of history. Thankfully, it does contain the authority for the government to step in and defend the rights of citizens. President George Washington expressed the idea this way his immortal Farewell Address:

“This government, the offspring of our own choice, uninfluenced and unawed, adopted upon full investigation and mature deliberation, completely free in its principles, in the distribution of its powers, uniting security with energy, and containing within itself a provision for its own amendment, has a just claim to your confidence and your support. Respect for its authority, compliance with its laws, acquiescence in its measures, are duties enjoined by the fundamental maxims of true liberty. The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all. The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established government.

“All obstructions to the execution of the laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels and modified by mutual interests.”

America274

As General Washington said, we owe obedience to the government’s laws, inasmuch as they do not infringe upon our rights. The government therefore has inherent power to compel obedience while the People ratify the government with their consent and while its actions are harmonious with our Liberty. And as the chief executive, the president commands the power to compel.

Furthermore, our history furnishes precedent for the president using the military domestically. To justify his actions, President Trump took the advice of Senator Tom Cotton and invoked the 1807 Insurrection Act. The Act, passed by Congress and signed into law by President Thomas Jefferson, authorizes the president to deploy the military or militias during times of insurrection or when general law and order have been thwarted. The purpose of authorizing military force is for putting down insurrection or causing the laws to be duly executed. Congress has, more than once, reaffirmed the Insurrection Act and, thus, legally speaking, President Trump has every authority necessary to call in the military and use them to suppress the dangerous rioting that has already claimed the lives of multiple individuals and has set the whole nation on edge.

Even before the Insurrection Act, President George Washington demonstrated that the president has the right, when the situation calls for it, to use the military to bring about law and order. In 1791, the Whiskey Rebellion began. The rebellion lasted three years with the government futilely attempting the tax evaders. The final straw came in 1794 when 6,000 demonstrators erected mock guillotines and threatened government leaders (think of what was happening in France at the time). President Washington was so furious that the laws set forth by a government ratified by the consent of the People were being flouted that he issued a stern proclamation on August 7, 1794. In part, it read:

“[I]t is in my Judgment necessary under the circumstances of the case to take measures for calling forth the militia in order to suppress the Combinations aforesaid and to cause the Laws to be duly executed, and I have accordingly determined so to do, feeling the deepest regret for the occasion, but withal the most Solemn conviction, that the essential interests of the Union demand it, that the very existence of Government and the fundamental principles of social order are materially involved in the issue, and that the patriotism and firmness of all good Citizens are seriously called upon, as occasion may require, to aid in the effectual suppression of so fatal a Spirit.

“Wherefore, and in pursuance of the Proviso above recited, I George Washington, President of the United States, do hereby command all persons, being insurgents as aforesaid and all others whom it may concern on or before the first day of September next to disperse and retire peaceably to their respective abodes. And I do moreover warn all persons whomsoever against aiding abetting or comforting the perpetrators of the aforesaid treasonable Acts: and do require all officers and other Citizens according to their respective duties and the laws of the land to exert their utmost endeavors to prevent and suppress such dangerous proceedings.”

1a Washington Reviewing the Western Army, at Fort Cumberland, Maryland, after 1795 attributed to Frederick Kemmelmeyer (German-born American artist, c.1755-1821)

President Washington, citing the 1792 Militia Acts, suited up in his old general’s uniform and rode at the head of an army of 13,000 militiamen to quell the “treasonable” uprising and punish the “insurgents.” Most of the “insurgents” departed peaceably, a number were arrested, a few were tried, two were found guilty of treason, and in the end Washington pardoned them. In that same year, James Madison wrote:

“The result of the insurrection ought to be a lesson to every part of the Union against disobedience to the laws. Examples of this kind are as favorable to the enemies of republican government as the event proves them to be dangerous to the authors” (James Madison to Hubbard Taylor, November 15, 1794).

Some then and now challenge Washington’s authority in this matter, yet the General understood that the president has the inherent right to enforce the Constitution – even by military means. Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, for instance, initially disagreed with President Washington’s move. Yet, it was Thomas Jefferson, supported by James Madison, who, feeling the necessity to use troops to suppress a brewing rebellion by Aaron Burr, pushed for and signed the Insurrection Act a few short years later. Today, real patriots should be able to agree with Presidents Washington, Jefferson, and Madison that situations arise in which the president must have the authority and power to use the nation’s military might domestically.

For the sake of argument, let’s assume that the Constitution does not allow the president to use the military in domestic matters when a crisis calls for it. Even in this scenario, the president would be in the right to use the military to bring order. He would be justified by the “laws of necessity.”

Thomas Jefferson spoke often of the “laws of necessity” as being higher than the actual written law. I concur as emphatically as mortal words allow me to. The great sage explained:

“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” (Thomas Jefferson to John B. Colvin, September 20, 1810).

Another time, Jefferson simply stated that “necessity is above all law” (Thomas Jefferson, “Report on Navigation of the Mississippi,” 1792).

The “laws of necessity” are of higher value even than the Constitution, which I consider to be a literally Heaven-inspired document. I revere the Constitution as I do the Bible and other holy scripture. Yet, the “laws of necessity” supersede all mortal laws. Even Heavenly laws such as “thou shalt not kill” can be justly broken when self-defense or the punishment of criminals necessitates it.

Think of the situation we find ourselves in as a People. Thousands of violent rioters from Miami to New York City to Baltimore to Houston to Minneapolis to L.A. are looting stores, destroying private property, burning down apartments and police stations, murdering law enforcement personnel, attacking truck drivers, and causing general chaos. Doesn’t necessity require a swift end to the violence? Doesn’t necessity dictate that our nation’s military, which exists to protect our Republic, be used to do their job? Fortunately, even if you can’t yet hear the call of necessity, you can settle your mind in the fact that the Insurrection Act championed by the great Thomas Jefferson authorizes domestic military intervention during legitimate crises.

I don’t say this often, but God bless Donald Trump! I didn’t vote for him in 2016 and I won’t be voting for him in 2020. However, even while he has done many things I find deplorable, he has done more good than any president in my lifetime. During the past week alone he has hit several home runs: Moving to designate Antifa a terrorist organization; taking the United States out of the World Health Organization (WHO); moving to stop censorship by social media outlets that take tax-payer money; expelling Chinese “students” associated with the communist People’s Liberation Army (PLA) from America; and now deploying the military to put down violent Marxist riots.

If I was in the presidency, I would use the office to designate all organizations, parties, publications, groups, and clubs promoting Marxism as “subversive.” I would move to disband and criminalize them. I would do everything in my power – including using the military – to round up the members of these organizations. They would be placed through an educational course similar to what prospective U.S. citizens take. At the end, they would be given an option: Swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution or be exiled. In extreme cases, I propose the death penalty. Capital punishment has always been the penalty for traitors.

This proposal no doubt sounds draconian. After all, isn’t this what Hitler did to the communists who were attempting to overthrow Germany? Yes, it is. And by so doing, he saved Germany from a communist coup d’état! Despite how authoritarian it seems, removing the source of violence and disturbance is an essential duty of the officers of government. Think of it in other terms. When you find a cancerous tumor in your body, do you leave it there or do you cut it out? You of course remove it. If you leave it in the body, it spreads, festers, damages tissue cells and bone marrow, and eventually kills you – sometimes in an agonizing manner. The same is true of political contagions like communism. If they are not ruthlessly rooted out, the society will deteriorate, convulse, and die.

We have to ask ourselves if we’re willing to let our cities burn and watch our people’s lives, livelihoods, and property be destroyed in the name of an organized mob fighting so-called “injustice.” Are we prepared to sit by idly as the law if flouted and savage mobs roam the streets like hyenas searching for prey? Or are we willing to do what necessity requires and fight back? Thankfully, President Trump has decided to do his duty and fight back. According to one poll, 58% of Americans support his decision. Even if they did not, however, it would still be the right thing to do. It is the only moral thing to do in this dire situation.

Even as I emphatically support the president’s decision, I offer a word of caution. Having a standing army on our streets was something the Founding Fathers collectively feared. They distrusted military establishments. The Constitution in fact only permits Congress to fund a military two years at a time – a clear attempt to check a future police state. History bears out the fact that tyrants often rise out of the habitual use of military force. Would-be-despots love crises because they give a pretext for instituting martial law.

President Trump is not the one who will use the military to oppress Americans and enact full martial law. However, if we get comfortable with having the military patrol our streets or if we allow the Marxist plague to force the military to be called out again and again, there will come a day when a future president will use the military to overthrow the Constitution.

I call on everyone to unite to cut the communist cancer from the American body once and for all. We must focus all our attention on the real enemy:

“We must not become confused over side issues. Our enemy is not the Catholic, not the Protestant, not the Negro, not the white man, not the Jew, not the Gentile, not employers, not employees, not the wealthy, not the poor, not the worker, and not the employer. Our mortal enemies are the Satanic Communists and those who prepare the path for them” (Ezra Taft Benson, “A Race Against Time,” BYU Address, December 10, 1963).

Not only are Black Lives Matter and Antifa goons communists themselves, but they’re preparing the path for a much eviler criminal cult to take power in the chaos – the very chaos people endorse and sanction when they erroneously identify the riots as “peaceful protests,” add “Black Lives Matter” filters to their Facebook pictures, and call people “racists” for not going along with their white-guilt-fueled professions of sorrow.

communism445

Finally, I echo J. Edgar Hoover who encouraged American patriots, saying:

“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).

Fellow American, do your part to drag this diabolical conspiracy into the light where it will wither and die. Use your influence, however great or small, to denounce communism while advocating in favor of our Faith, Families, and Freedom. We have an opportunity, if we’re wise, moral, and courageous enough to take it, to deal a major blow to the communist conspiracy in America. If we fail to exterminate communism from our Republic, or if we allow our military to be improperly used in this fight, we may be signing our own death certificate. God help the pure in heart see the day when the communist gravediggers lie in the same mass grave they dug for us!

George Floyd and the Scourge of Black Criminality

American cities are ablaze with violent race rioting. The death of ex-con George Floyd sparked this outrageous conflagration. On May 25, Floyd, a black man, was arrested for trying to pay for cigarettes at a local store with counterfeit money. A police statement noted “he physically resisted officers.” A clearly agitated Floyd wound up being led out of his vehicle, placed in handcuffs, and walked to a squad car. As he walked, he was weaving and staggering as if high or drunk. At one point, he even fell on the ground of his own accord. Continue reading

What Government Can and Can’t Do

Government is not all-powerful. I know that’s a surprise to government bureaucrats and people in blue states (and too many in red ones). This article will cut through the fog of lies and lay out, in a very concise format, what government legitimately can and can’t do – which powers it actually has and doesn’t have.

America269

We need to start by asking and answering some basic questions: Where does government get its power from? From whom is its authority derived? And what is the purpose of government? The Declaration of Independence answers these questions. The Founding Fathers etched the following truths in stone:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. – That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

From this statement, we learn that government exists for the express purpose of securing the individual’s God-given rights, such as life, Liberty, property, speech, self-defense, and so on. We learn that governments don’t spring up out of the ground, but are created by people. They create them, as noted, to safeguard their rights. Governments are subservient to the people who create them. They may be abolished by the People at any given time – and especially when the government oversteps its obligation to secure people’s rights.

To reiterate, government gets 100% of its authority from you. As James Madison put it, “the people are the only legitimate fountain of power” (Federalist No. 49, February 5, 1788). Thomas Jefferson, concurring, affirmed: “I consider the people who constitute a society or nation as the source of all authority in that nation” (Thomas Jefferson, Opinion on the Treaties with France, April 28, 1793). Therefore, if you want to know what a government can and cannot do, simply determine what you justly can and cannot do. If you do not possess a certain power or authority, neither does government. It’s categorically impossible for government to rightly claim prerogatives and powers that its creator does not have.

Additionally, people acting together in groups does not magically endow the group, or government, with extra privileges and powers. Joint action adds zero authority to anything! Acting with your neighbor doesn’t suddenly grant you privileges you lacked as an individual acting alone. Society cannot justly do a single thing individuals are forbidden from doing. If it is wrong for an individual, it is wrong for the group and for the government.

To make this clearer, let’s consult some basic examples.

Do you have a right to kill another human being for no reason? No. Therefore, government does not possess the authority to take a life without justification.

Liberty1

Do you have a right to kill someone in self-defense? Yes. Therefore, government has the authorization to kill in self-defense; that is, to defend its people against foreign invasion and to secure the rights of citizens, with lethal force when necessary, against criminals.

Do you have a right to seize and imprison someone without cause? No. Therefore, neither does government have that right.

Do you have a right to take money from your neighbor? No. Therefore, neither does government have a right to take money. The obvious exception to this is taxation. In the case of taxation, however, the People collectively consent to giving up a small portion of their income to help the government fulfill its purpose of securing their rights. When it exceeds this purpose, it becomes common theft.

Do you have a right to take money from someone and give it to someone else? No. Therefore, neither does government have a right to take your money and divvy it out to someone else in the community – even for allegedly “charitable” purposes.

Do you have a right to take someone’s property? No. Therefore, neither does government have a just authority to confiscate property. A possible exception is when someone uses their property in such a manner as to infringe upon the rights of other people. For instance, a person cannot acquire property at the head of a river and dam it off so that other people down river suddenly are deprived of their equal share of the water usage. And so forth.

Do you have a right to tell another person what they can and cannot say? No. Therefore, neither does government have that authority. As in the last case, there are exceptions. Slander and libel laws prevent people from lying and intentionally harming the reputation of another individual. You have no right to lie about people. Liars are essentially murderers – murderers of truth, killers of reputations, and destroyers of lives. Just laws protect people against this type of abuse. Similarly, public decency laws protect people against profane language, threats, and so forth.

Do you have a right to control another person’s body? No. Therefore, government doesn’t have authority over another’s body.

America271

Do you have a right to tell your neighbor what they can and cannot put in their body? No. Therefore, government doesn’t possess any such authority. That being said, certain substances, such as alcohol, impair the individual’s judgment and frequently lead them to mindlessly harm, maim, and kill innocent people. Alcohol is one of the leading causes of death, disease, and violence in our nation. Inasmuch as it is a legitimate threat to individual safety, to say nothing of its danger to society by subverting families and morality, government has a legitimate power to protect the rights of its people. You cannot, however, make a similar argument for everything that someone might deem a “threat,” such as fatty foods or guns.

Do you have a right to tell others who the can and cannot marry? No. Therefore, government has no right to dictate in this matter either. The only exception is to prohibit that which is not only unnatural and morally reprehensible, but which demonstrably undermines the stability of the nation and its innocent children. Homosexuality and same-sex marriage is one such example. Lest you protest, remember that the Declaration of Indepedence referenced “the laws of Nature” and “Nature’s God” as the foundation of our entire civilization. To institutionalize violations of the laws of nature is to throw out the entire Declaration of Independence and the very concept of America.

Do you have the right to tell someone what they can and cannot build, do, or grow on their property? No. Therefore, government cannot tell people what they can and cannot do on their property – excepting, of course, criminal activities that violate other people’s rights.

Do you have a right to dictate what other people can and cannot wear? No. Therefore, neither can the government claim authority to dictate in this aspect. Public decency laws apply, however.

Do you have a right to deprive your neighbor of his means of self-defense? No. Therefore, government cannot justly take away a peaceable individual’s means of personal protection. To acknowledge, as the Declaration of Independence does, that our rights come from God is to simultaneously acknowledge that we have an equal right to defend them. You cannot take away this right without jeopardizing all other rights.

America281

Do you have a right to force your neighbor’s children to go to a public institution to study? No. Therefore, neither does government possess authority to separate children from their parents and force them to study in a public school.

Do you have a right to force another person to inject substances into his body? No. Therefore, government has no such power.

Finally, do you have a right to force your neighbor to stay in his home, wear a face mask, or close his business? No. Therefore, government has no right to force peaceable citizens to stay in the homes, wear masks over their faces, or close their businesses and cut off their livelihoods.

Our list of examples could go on almost indefinitely. You can clearly see the picture, however. The key point is that government is only authorized to do what you, the individual, can do. Nothing more. If you have no authority to do something, then neither does government!

The U.S. Constitution has actually simplified this concept by including a short list of enumerated powers. These powers – about 18 in number, depending on how you want to break up the list – are the only things Congress is authorized to do. They are specific, not broad. They cover individual items, not entire classifications of things. They define what Congress can do, and, by implication, dictates they cannot do anything more.

For instance, We the People have delegated to Congress the authority to “provide and maintain a Navy,” to “establish Post Offices and post Roads,” to “coin Money,” and so on. Beyond these rigid bounds, the Congress cannot legitimately go. The same goes for the other branches of government and their limited, specified powers.

It is crucial for us as free individuals to know where our public representatives derive their authority. It is indispensable to comprehend what government can and can’t do. When we understand that government does not inherently possess any authority except that which the individuals in society give it, then we can more easily recognize and prevent abuses of that authority. When we understand this cardinal point, we’ll also understand that we are the true source of power and that our nation’s destiny is in our hands. All political power springs from We the People. Never forget it.

America283

I close by quoting once more from the Declaration of Independence. Internalize the words. Really believe them. Reclaim your rights. Exercise your sovereignty. Know that government is accountable to you, not you to the government. And God give you the courage to rise in defense of Freedom like our forefathers before us!

. . . to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government . . . when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

A Tribute to Mothers

Because our mothers love us, we learn, or more accurately remember, that God also loves us.” – President M. Russell Ballard

Motherhood is the highest, holiest, and most exalted calling in mortality! Mothers are co-creators with God in His divine work of peopling this earth for the purpose of being tested and, through the redeeming mercy of Jesus Christ, receiving eternal life in His Kingdom. Women bear a special responsibility as life-givers and nurturers. Motherhood is the essence of womanhood; the fulfillment of a woman’s sacred role. This Mother’s Day, I pay a warm tribute to all mothers, and especially to those who cheerfully embrace their divine calling.

mother10

From the beginning, our Father in Heaven has acted through families. We are His literal children and belong to His family. We lived with Him, learned from Him, and embraced Him before we came into mortality. Here on earth, our memories of that time with our Father have been veiled and temporarily hidden from us as part of this mortal testing period. However, the Lord reminds us of our Heavenly home by placing us in families with loving parents.

Mothers play a special role in the process of life. Of course, biologically, only women can have children. But beyond this, and much more importantly, a woman’s unique sensitivities are needed to raise children into peaceable, civil, and worthy adults.

By nature, women are more childlike. They operate more on an emotional level. They tend to care more about suffering. They are often more compassionate than men. They more frequently notice when others need help, when a hug would soften someone’s burden, or when a person simply requires a listening ear. All these traits – empathy, compassion, being able to relate to children – are tailored to motherhood.

God would have been a poor judge of character had He appointed men to do the work of nurturing. Don’t misunderstand, there are plenty of compassionate men who do a wonderful job rearing their little ones and reaching out to lift others. But men are not designed primarily for that role whereas women are. Women simply surpass men in nurturing. Men similarly outstrip women in those things God has appointed to their care. Thus, in His wisdom, our Eternal Father appointed woman to bear, raise, and nurture children.

tumblr_p3vbl98sBM1wdnxxyo1_1280

Our Eternal God has placed such a heavy burden – that of nurturing His precious children – on women because He knows their abilities and trust them to do their work with all their hearts. Elder Jeffrey R. Holland once said:

[M]ay I say to mothers collectively, in the name of the Lord, you are magnificent. You are doing terrifically well. The very fact that you have been given such a responsibility is everlasting evidence of the trust your Father in Heaven has in you” (Elder Jeffrey R. Holland, “Because She Is a Mother,” General Mother, April, 1997).

In our day of rampant feminism, many women have neglected their divine duties. But the Lord has nevertheless appointed them to be wives, mothers, and homemakers and to play a fundamentally crucial role in His Plan of Happiness. Those who embrace this calling – and there are plenty who faithfully dobring light and joy into the world. They make the world a little better. Their influence sheds on others and inspired people to better themselves.

Women, the home is where you were designed to shine! It is in the home that you can do the most good for society. It is in the home where you can change society by training your children. It is in your role as a mother that you can do the most good for the world. It is also as mothers that you will find the most fulfillment and happiness and where your soul will be stretched beyond what you can imagine. The happiest people I know are those who have faithfully responded to the divine call of motherhood.

I now wish to pay tribute to four women in particular: My wife, my Mom, Mother Eve, and our Mother in Heaven.

First, I wish to express my love to my wife, Emma. Some months ago, we found out that she’s carrying our first child. We are extremely exited to begin the journey of parenthood and to have a family of our own this summer. I honor my wife for her sacrifice in carrying our child. It’s been fascinating to see the process unfold, watch our little one grow inside her, and know that our Father in Heaven trusts us enough to send one of His special spirit children into our home. I cannot express too profoundly how much I appreciate my wife’s willingness to fulfill her role as a mother. I love you, Emma!

Secondly, I wish to honor my own mother. My Mom is the best person I know. When I think of my Mom, the first descriptor that comes to mind is “selfless.” Always and forever she put me, my siblings, and my Dad above herself. She put our needs before her own. She made us food when she was hungry. She cleaned the house that we had made messy even when she was tired. She held us when we were sad. She cared for us when we were sick. She listened when we needed to reveal the innermost secrets of our heart. She centered everything on her God and her family. For that, I love her, honor her, and pay her the deepest tribute mere words can pay. My Mom is an elect woman, a true Saint, and I love her!

20180220_205227

Little me and my lovely Mom

Next, I pay tribute to the most maligned woman in history – Mother Eve. I believe the Christian world stands condemned for falsely accusing and excoriating that special lady, the wife of the prophet Adam, the mother of our race. She transgressed like all of us. But she was faithful to the higher laws of God. She was loyal to her husband. She exemplified womanhood and motherhood in her willingness to fulfill her divine role as a co-creator with our Father in Heaven. May we learn to revere Eve and cease our condemnation of this tremendous Christian woman.

Lastly, I pay tribute to my Mother in Heaven. Our Father in Heaven has chosen not to reveal Her to us, perhaps out of respect for Her and to protect Her from the same indignities and insults which His disobedient children heap upon Him. If we are His children, and He is our Father, then it is the most logical and correct thing in the world to believe we have a Mother as well. This is far different from believing in the pagan conception of the “Queen of Heaven.” Rather, it is the logical conclusion of the human soul once that soul understands his true relation to his Eternal Father and the fact that we are part of His family. My heart fills with gratitude and longing whenever I reflect that I’m a child of God!

This Mother’s Day, I encourage you to honor your mother. Call her. Visit her if you can. Tell her how much you appreciate, cherish, and love her. Give her a bear hug. Let your heart beat for her and express its love in its magical, unspoken way.

In a general sense, honor all mothers. Honor those who willingly embrace their womanhood by becoming mothers to special spirits sent from Heaven. Honor those who do their best, however falteringly, to love, nurture, and care for their children. Pay your respect to the noble women who know that they are daughters of God and who live pure lives, embrace their feminine nature, and relish the high and holy calling of motherhood.

mother30

Dear mothers, please know that you are loved. Real men everywhere honor you. Real men appreciate you. Real men would die to protect you. Also know that your children, though they might not always show it, need you, remember you, and love you. The greatest work you will ever do will be in home. The greatest calling you will ever have is as a mother. The greatest joy you can experience will be to watch your own children grow in righteousness and put into action those things you so painstakingly taught them as you nurtured them in your home.

God bless you mothers! God bless you prospective mothers! God bless you young women who know that your destiny – your sacred calling – is to follow the path of Mother Eve and your own mother in bearing children and raising them to serve the Lord. Happy Mother’s Day!

Victory Day – For Whom?

Propaganda can be pro or con. In neither case does it have to be negative. The only thing that is important is whether or not its words are true and genuine expressions of a people’s values . . . Good propaganda does not need to lie, indeed it may not lie. It has no reason to fear the truth. It is a mistake to believe that people cannot take the truth. They can. It is only a matter of presenting the truth to people in a way that they will be able to understand. A propaganda that lies proves that it has a bad cause. It cannot be successful in the long run.” – Joseph Goebbels, Speech, September, 1934.

On the Eighth and Ninth of May every year, respectively, the West and Russia celebrate Victory Day. “Victory Day” commemorates the Allied triumph over Germany in World War II. As we look back at that horrific world conflagration with seventy-five years of hindsight, we’re forced to ask ourselves who really won that war. Was it really a “victory” for the forces of Freedom? Did the Allies truly “liberate” Europe? Were the true villains brought to justice or were scapegoats destroyed instead? This “Victory Day” we should ask ourselves for whom was this “victory”?

Victory Day2

Victory Day parade on Red Square

Long ago, I came to the conclusion that the Allies lost World War II. We lost it both morally and in terms of stated objectives. This piece won’t focus on the morality of the war except in passing, but instead will focus on the stated objectives. The Allies’ ostensible reason for entering the war in Europe was to liberate Poland and bring “democracy” to oppressed people. Democracy is a terrible thing to inflict on anyone, but that’s a discussion for a different time. Let’s focus on the first reason for bombing the whole of Europe into a smoking crater: The liberation of Poland.

We’re compelled to ask ourselves the obvious question: Was Poland liberated as a consequence of the war? When we ask the honest question, it leads to the honest answer: No. Far from regaining its sovereignty, Poland lost its independence to the Soviet Union and suffered under brutal communist domination for forty-five years. This lone fact nullifies any pretense to noble motives on the part of Russia, Britain, France, or, later, the United States.

Here’s a fact most history teachers and university professors won’t tell you; namely, that Britain and France started World War II. This isn’t conjecture – it’s unimpeachable fact. On September 1, 1939, Hitler’s Germany seized Polish-occupied German territory after thousands of ethnic Germans had been assaulted, driven from their homes, and, in some prominent cases, massacred, by Polish military forces. The plunder, persecution, rape, and murder naturally inflamed tensions. Yet, these genocidal crimes have been almost wholly erased from popular memory. Nevertheless, they happened and were documented.

Before circumstances prevented them from continuing, the German government counted as many as 58,000 Germans in Poland who had either been sadistically murdered or who had become unaccounted for (nearly 13,000 of these had been confirmed dead). The persecutions long began before Hitler liberated his people and continued until the ruthless Polish government surrendered. Germans were castrated, raped, mutilated, locked in churches and burned to death, and so forth. The most infamous massacre occurred on September 3 in Bromberg, Poland. 3,000 German civilians were raped and slaughtered by the Poles in what was called “Bloody Sunday.” Did you learn about any of these Polish atrocities in history class? If not, perhaps you should ponder why not.

Bromberg3

These atrocities alone are reason enough for a nation to avenge themselves on the aggressor, yet even more provocations were hurled at Germany by Poland before Hitler made his final decision to attack. For instance, maps had recently been circulated in Poland showing Poland’s borders extending well beyond Berlin, inferring a Polish attack on Germany. In hindsight, we’re tempted to laugh at the idea of a Polish attack on Germany. However, in 1939, Poland’s military was actually larger than Germany’s. In 1938, Poland’s military had invaded and conquered part of neighboring Czechoslovakia. And let’s not forget that Poland attacked Germany after World War I and had been hostile ever since.

The real hinge-point of it all, however, was Poland’s refusal to return the port city of Danzig, with its 96% German population, to Germany. This was the crux of the conflict. Germany needed Danzig. Danzig was a German city occupied by the Poles despite being under League of Nations control. And the Germans in Danzig wanted to return to the German Reich. Despite this, Poland’s government patently refused to negotiate. Hitler made various proposals, including a road linking Germany proper to Danzig. But of course Poland refused to the right thing and return German territory to Germany.

After all of these Polish provocations, the Polish military was mobilized against Germany. Mobilization was considered an act of war. Sporadic military actions by Poland occurred at the border. Threats poured out constantly from Warsaw. The Polish regime was not afraid to take such provocative steps because they were bolstered by secret British guarantees of support in the event of war (FDR also Marxist stuck his nose into European affairs and encouraged Poland not to negotiate). Thus, Polish leaders rejected multiple extremely generous peace offers from Hitler, cut off all civil diplomacy, and geared up for war.

After relations broke down, his offers were rejected, and Germans in Poland began to be attacked, Hitler made his decision to retake the rightful German territory stolen at the end of World War I and kept in limbo by the Treaty of Versailles. When German troops steamrolled through Poland’s inept military on the First of September, Hitler visited Danzig and gave a remarkable speech. He laid out the reasons for war. I share a lengthy excerpt from the speech below. As you read, know that this is real history – a far cry from the Establishment propaganda in our history books.

Hitler263

As for me, what made me most indignant was that we had to bear this illtreatment and oppression from a nation standing far below us; for when all is said and done, Germany is really a Great Power, even though the others attempted to exterminate us through the Treaty of Versailles.

Especially intolerable were two circumstances. Here, first, a city, whose German character cannot be doubted, was not only prevented from joining the German Reich but attempts were also made through the years to colonise it for Poland. Secondly, a German province was cut off from the Reich and allowed only one means of communication with it in a way that permitted all kinds of trickery.

No other country in the world would have borne this state of affairs as long as Germany has. I do not know what Great Britain would have said to such a peaceful solution at her cost or what would have been done by France or America. I tried to find a solution. I submitted proposals orally to those in power in Poland at that time. They knew these proposals—they were more than moderate. I tried to reconcile the economic demands of Poland with the German character of Danzig.

At that time I was too modest, and there were moments in which I asked myself the question whether I could demand of my own people that such proposals should be made to the Polish Government. What I did, I did to save the German People and the Polish people from other sufferings. . . .

Poland’s answer was first mobilisation; and then wild terror began. My request to the Polish Foreign Minister to visit me in Berlin was rejected. Instead, every month there were continually increasing threats, which are not bearable when they come from a small State, and in the long run are quite impossible even from a great Power. . . .

The Polish marshal, who has now left his army woefully in the lurch, declared that he would cut our army to pieces.

The martyrdom of our countrymen began. I have put to myself the question: Who could have blinded Poland thus? It is that same place in which the universal warmongers have sat and are still sitting, not only for the last ten years, but for centuries. It was there that the Poles were persuaded to resist Germany. There a guarantee was given to Poland. There the Poles were given the opportunity to begin war.

polsha-granicza

German soldiers open the German-Polish border September 1, 1939

For these men Poland was only a pawn in the game; to-day these men are calmly saying that it is no longer a question of Poland, but of the German Government. I have constantly uttered warnings against Churchill, Eden, Duff Cooper, and the rest; but I was laughed at.

You know the developments of those days in August. I believe it would have been possible to avoid war were it not for the British guarantee and the incitement of these apostles of war. I was ready to negotiate directly with Poland, but the Poles did not turn up. Instead, there was the Polish general mobilisation, new acts of terror, endless attacks on German soil.

But patience in national affairs must not be mistaken for weakness. I looked on for years until at last I declared that I would talk to Poland in the same language as Poland intended to use with us. Even then peace could still have been secured. Mussolini offered to mediate; France agreed. But Great Britain refused this proposal and thought that she could send the German Reich a two-hour ultimatum.

In November 1918 the English had in Germany a Government which bore with them, and they have confused the present authorities with those of that day. In the last six years I have had to put up with all this, above all from the Poles. Nevertheless, I did not issue any ultimatum. To-day the German Reich is not letting others talk to her in that way.

Poland chose war and had it. She chose war with a light heart because the Western statesmen had cheated her about Germany, because they had told her of the weakness of the German army, of internal defeatism, of the gulf between Leadership and the people, and of their bad organisation. The Poles had been told that it would be easy, not only to hold up the German troops, but to make them retreat. Poland has learned in eighteen days how they have been lied to. . . .

In eighteen days we have defeated the Poles, and now we hope to arrange a situation in which a tolerable solution will be found by reasonable means in the future. . . .

. . . Germany has limited, but firm, demands and will realise them one way or another. . . .

. . . Germany has striven with great self-sacrifice to accept definitive frontiers in the west and south. We believe that this would have succeeded if the warmongers had not had an interest in the breakdown of European peace.

I have no war aims against England and France. I have tried to maintain peace with these countries and to establish friendly relations between the British and. the German nations. I have also told France that I have no further aspirations in the West. I have especially striven, after the settlement of the Saar transfer, to prevent any conflict or any propaganda which could provoke hostility. You also already know my offer to Great Britain. . . .

. . . Many people will say that the German nation is not so enthusiastic as in 1914. It is indeed much more enthusiastic. It is filled with a fanatical determination. It possesses the enthusiasm of men who know what war is. We do not feed on any artificial jingoism. We know how awful these happenings are; but we are determined to see this event through to a victorious end. W e only wish that God Almighty, who has blessed our arms, may enlighten other nations and make them reconsider things.”

Hitler told the truth when he said he had offered peace to Britain, France, and Poland. You can read about the myriad of these peace proposals in Friedrich Stieve’s book What the World Rejected: Hitler’s Peace Offers 1933-1940. Hitler did not want war. He didn’t back down from a fight, but he also did not court one. As a decorated military veteran of the First World War, he knew its horrors and wanted to avert the destruction of his people whom he loved.

If we are honest, we must include that Germany’s reconquest of its territory in Poland was just. But justification aside, it is crucial to acknowledge that Hitler’s actions on September 1, 1939 did not start WWII. The Danzig dispute only started a small regional conflict between two nations – Germany and Poland. It was on September 3 that Britain and France, ignoring efforts by Italian leader Benito Mussolini and others to initiate a peace conference to settle the issue diplomatically, declared war on Germany. This declaration of war is what turned a regional conflict into a world war.

Furthermore, on September 3, the French military invaded German territory, occupying an 8kilometer swath of land in the Saar region – and this at a time when Germany had not declared war on France or Britain or even considered war with them a real possibility. It was Britain and France, not Germany, who fired the first shots of the world war. In fact, when the news broke, the New York Times ran the headline: “French Invade Reich.” If you prefer to point to Poland, it was the Poles who first drew German blood, mobilized for war, and broke off diplomatic negotiations. Yet, none of this is mentioned in our censored “history” books. I implore you to ponder the reason why these facts are carefully excluded from “official” texts on the Second World War. And while you’re pondering, read British researcher Nick Kollerstrom’s fantastic little book How Britain Initiated Both World Wars.

On July 19, 1940, after the quick fall of France, and after Winston Churchill had ordered the cruel bombing of Germany’s civilian population, Hitler again petitioned for a cessation of violence. In the Reichstag, he declared:

All of this – as I said – need not have happened. For peace was all I asked of France and England in October. But the gentlemen war profiteers wanted a continuation of this war at all cost. They have it now.

I myself am too much a soldier not to comprehend the tragedy of such a development. Still all I hear from London are cries – not the cries of the masses, but of the politicians – that this war must now, all the more, be pursued. I do not know if these politicians have an inkling of just how this war is in fact to be pursued. They declare that they will continue this war, and should England fall, then they will do so from Canada. I do not believe this means that the English people will all emigrate to Canada, but rather that the gentlemen war profiteers will all retreat to Canada by themselves. I fear the people will have to remain behind in England. And, assuredly, they will see the war with different eyes in London than their so-called leaders in Canada.

Believe me, my Deputies, I feel an inner disgust at this type of unscrupulous parliamentarian annihilators of peoples and states. It is almost painful to me to have been chosen by Providence to give a shove to what these men have brought to the point of falling. It was not my ambition to wage wars, but to build up a new social state of the highest culture. And every year of war takes me away from my work. And the cause of this robbery is those ludicrous zeroes whom one could at best call nature’s political run of the mill, insofar as their corrupted vileness does not brand them as something out of the ordinary.

Mr. Churchill has repeated the declaration that he wants war. About six weeks ago now, he launched this war in an arena in which he apparently believes he is quite strong: namely, in the air war against the civilian population, albeit beneath the deceptive slogan of a so-called war against military objectives. Ever since Freiburg, these objectives have turned out to be open cities, markets, villages, residential housing, hospitals, schools, kindergartens, and whatever else happens to be hit.

Up to now I have given little by way of response. This is not intended to signal, however, that this is the only response possible or that it shall remain this way.

I am fully aware that with our response, which one day will come, will also come the nameless suffering and misfortune of many men. Naturally, this does not apply to Mr. Churchill himself since by then he will surely be secure in Canada, where the money and the children of the most distinguished of war profiteers have already been brought. But there will be great tragedy for millions of other men. And Mr. Churchill should make an exception and place trust in me when as a prophet I now proclaim: A great world empire will be destroyed. A world empire which I never had the ambition to destroy or as much as harm. Alas, I am fully aware that the continuation of this war will end only in the complete shattering of one of the two warring parties. Mr. Churchill may believe this to be Germany. I know it to be England. In this hour I feel compelled, standing before my conscience, to direct yet another appeal to reason in England. I believe I can do this as I am not asking for something as the vanquished, but rather, as the victor, I am speaking in the name of reason. I see no compelling reason which could force the continuation of this war.

I regret the sacrifices it will demand. I would like to spare my Volk. I know the hearts of millions of men and boys aglow at the thought of finally being allowed to wage battle against an enemy who has, without reasonable cause, declared war on us a second time.”

No honest person can determine that Hitler wanted war or wanted to see his beloved Germany bombed to pieces. Hitler loved the German people – no one can deny that. He loved children and youth. He created youth programs and pass laws to advance a healthy, educated, and wealthy citizenry. Yet, war was foisted upon him just as it had been foisted upon Germany in 1914 by Britain, France, and Russia – and the secret societies that controlled their political and financial institutions.

We now shift our attention to Russia. The Soviet Union’s critical role in the coming of World War II must never be forgotten. When Hitler’s peace overtures began falling flat in 1939, he turned to Moscow for a treaty of non-aggression. He believed that if he shored up the eastern front, Britain and France wouldn’t dare attack Germany from the rear if he was finally forced to attack Poland. Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin knew this plan. He also knew that Britain and France had secretly courted the Soviet Union as well, letting him in on their scheme to attack Germany if Hitler attacked Poland. As a consequence of this secret knowledge, Stalin decided to sign a non-aggression pact with Germany – thus assuring a war between Germany, Britain, and France. Indeed, Stalin gave Germany much of the war materiel he needed for his attack and for his later campaigns in the West.

The Soviets, always the masters of deceit and lords of chaos, crave war. They don’t like to be seen as the aggressor (it clashes with their fake facade of peaceful liberators), but they always work from the shadows to create friction and pit people, groups, and nations against each other. From private speeches by Stalin and internal Comintern documents, we know that the Soviet leaders wanted a war that would bleed the Western powers dry and soften them up for a Soviet invasion. On August 19, 1939, Stalin reasoned with his henchmen thus:

The question of war or peace has entered a critical phase for us. If we conclude a mutual assistance treaty with France and Great Britain, Germany will back off of Poland and seek a modus vivendi with the Western Powers. War would thus be prevented but future events could take a serious turn for the USSR.

If we accept Germany’s proposal to conclude with it a non-aggression pact, Germany will then attack Poland and Europe will be thrown into serious acts of unrest and disorder. Under these circumstances we will have many chances of remaining out of the conflict while being able to hope for our own timely entrance into war.

Stalin plotting his conquests

The experience of the past 20 years shows that in peacetime it is impossible to maintain a Communist movement throughout Europe that would be strong enough so that a Bolshevik party could seize power. A dictatorship by this party becomes possible only as a result of a big war. We are making our choice and it is clear. We must accept the German proposal and politely send the Anglo-French delegations back home. The first advantage we will get will be the destruction of Poland up to the very approaches to Warsaw, including Ukrainian Galicia. . . .

At the same time we must anticipate what will ensue from the destruction of Germany in war as well as from a German victory. If it is destroyed, the sovietization of Germany follows inevitably and a Communist government will be established. We must not forget that a sovietized Germany would face great danger if such sovietization occurred after the defeat of Germany in a short war. England and France would be powerful enough to seize Berlin and destroy a Soviet Germany. We would not be able to come to the aid of our Bolshevik comrades in Germany.

Therefore, our task consists in helping Germany wage war for as long as possible with the aim in view that England and France would be in no condition to defeat a sovietized Germany. While hewing to a policy of neutrality and while waiting for its hour to come, the USSR will lend aid to today’s Germany and supply it with raw materials and foodstuff. Of course, it follows that we will not allow such shipments to jeopardize our economy or weaken our armed might.”

A short time later, when the Comintern – the international coordinating wing of the communist conspiracy – heard of the non-aggression pact, they were prepared to mutiny. How could Stalin negotiated with the hated fascists?! The Comintern had considered the German fascists to be a more fearsome opponent than the capitalists.

To allay their concerns, Stalin issued a secret message, telling the Comintern that their goal of world revolution had not changed. He reiterated that a “prolonged war,” the very same postulated by Marx and Lenin, was necessary to the communist world conquest. He made it clear that he signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact in interest of provoking the long-awaited war. He stated that the new Soviet policy was to “assist Germany in a sufficient degree so that she will begin a war and to take measures to insure that this war will drag on” (Anthony Cave Brown and Charles B. MacDonald, On a Field of Red: The Communist International and the Coming of World War II, 508).

It is clear from these various remarks and evidences that the Soviet Union was actively scheming for world war before the fateful events of September 1, 1939. They had always wanted world domination, but by 1939 they had a feasible plan of attack: Play the Great Powers off against each other in a major war and, when both sides were battered and exhausted, roll in from the rear and consume Europe.

Therefore, when Hitler stepped forward to assert his nation’s rights, even if it might mean war with Poland, Stalin was overjoyed to “help.” As noted, Stalin knew of Britain’s and France’s plan to start a major war if Hitler moved on Poland. Thus, Stalin acted with the goal of thrusting Europe into a war that the USSR could take advantage of as part of their world revolution.

Part of Stalin’s pact – and it was his pact inasmuch as it was signed in Moscow by him – was that the Soviet Union would attack Poland’s rear when Germany seized her disputed territory. Stalin cunningly delayed his attack by nearly two-and-a-half weeks, however, by which time the regional war had, on cue, been turned into a world war by Britain and France and the press had riveted their focused on Hitler as the “bad guy.” This episode shows the utter hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy of the “Allies.” They allegedly declared war on and attacked Germany because of Hitler’s retaliation against Poland for Polish atrocities and roguery. However, Britain and France never declared war on the Soviet Union when Stalin invaded and occupied the eastern half of Poland!

unnamed (27)

The Russian word мир, written in attack arrows, means “peace.”

During and after the war, the Allies bartered away Poland’s independence to the Soviets. Arthur Lane was America’s ambassador to Poland at the time. Outraged by what he witnessed, he wrote a book I Saw Poland Betrayed in which he railed:

It is with sorry, dismay and protest that we greet the decision of the Big Three to give all land east of the so-called Curzon Line to Russia in direct contradiction to all sacred pledges of the Atlantic Charter. This tragic revelation is a staggering blow to the cause of freedom.

The docile submission to Russia’s demand for all the lands, seized during the partitions of Poland as Germany’s collaborator and even Lwow, which, prior to the war, was never at any time under Russian rule even illegally, is a distortion of our war aims. It means re-affirmation of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Line of 1939 which gave one half of Poland and all of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia to Russia.

When the Germans were at the gates of Moscow and Stalin was making frantic pleas for help, Stalin renounced his claims to all the territories he had seized as Germany’s partner. As soon as Russia, thanks to American lend-lease aid, began pushing the Germans back, Stalin re-affirmed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Boundary Line and abruptly broke off relations with the London Polish government which he had always recognized as the only legitimate government of Poland.

It is also shocking to learn that the members of the Stalin handpicked Lublin government, composed of professional communists, who are working for the incorporation of Poland into the Soviet Union, are to continue in power in a newly-reorganized government in violation of the constitution of Poland. The imposition of a government “without the freely expressed wishes of the people concerned” would mean the end of freedom and the beginning of serfdom for the people of Poland.

As for the Poles not subservient to the Kremlin, they had no hesitation in terming the Yalta decision the betrayal of Poland. To them it was the negation of their hopes for independence and for restoration of the territory which their enemies had confiscated in 1939” (Arthur Bliss Lane, I Saw Poland Betrayed: An American Ambassador Reports to the American People, 85-86).

So much for “liberation” as a motive for Allied involvement. Poland was, as Hitler correctly said, a pawn in the international conspirators’ game.

From the very day that Stalin agreed to conclude a non-aggression pact with Germany, he began preparing for war. While Hitler was busy defending himself against France and England in the West, Stalin initiated a secretive two-year plan that would culminate in a Soviet attack on Germany’s rear in 1941. American-made Soviet factories began cranking out tanks and equipment by the tens of thousands. These troops were secretly brought into Soviet-occupied Poland and arranged in attack formation. And surrounding buffer territories in the Baltics, Scandinavia, and Eastern Europe were invaded and militarized by the Red Army. The groundwork was laid for a full-scale invasion of Europe.

Stalin26

Let’s not brush over Stalin’s two-year war plan too quickly, however. It’s an extremely important piece of history. The godfather of the idea that Stalin was preparing to attack Hitler, and Hitler preempted him with Operation Barbarossa, is the ex-Soviet intelligence officer Viktor Suvorov. Surovov’s most famous books, which I cannot recommend too highly, are Icebreaker and Chief Culprit: Stalin’s Grand Design to Start World War II. In a review of Suvorov’s work, Daniel Michaels made these summations:

[Marshal] Shaposhnikov’s mobilization plan, faithfully implemented by Stalin, laid out a clear, logical, two-year program (August 1939-summer 1941) that would inexorably and purposefully culminate in war. According to Suvorov, Stalin announced his decision to implement this plan at a Politburo meeting on August 19, 1939, four days before the signing of the Soviet-German non-aggression pact. (It was also at this Politburo meeting, which came shortly after Stalin had concluded his draconian purges of military and political “unreliables,” that the Soviet leader ordered General Georgi Zhukov to attack, and defeat, in classic blitzkrieg fashion, the Japanese Sixth Army at Khalkhin-Gol, Mongolia.)

Thirteen days after Stalin’s speech, German troops struck against Poland, and two days after that — September 3, 1939 — Britain and France declared war on Germany.

Once Stalin decided to embark on this process of mobilization, the regime radically retooled the nation’s economy, directing the enormous physical and human resources of the Soviet Union for war. By its nature, this all-encompassing process could be pursued only to its logical conclusion — war. Simply stated, Stalin’s 1939 decision to mobilize inevitably meant war. . . .

Suvorov presents overwhelming evidence to show that Stalin was preparing for a massive surprise attack against Germany, to be launched in the summer of 1941. (Suvorov believes the attack was set for July 6, 1941.) In preparation for this, the Soviets had deployed enormous forces right on the German frontier, including paratroops, together with airfields and large caches of weapons, ammunition, fuel and other supplies.

In April 1941 the Red Army ordered a massive deployment of artillery pieces and ammunition production to the frontier, and their storage there on the ground and in the open. This alone, writes Suvorov, proves Stalin’s intention to attack, because this weaponry and ammunition had to be used before the fall, when the annual rains would begin. Storing munitions in the open in 1941 meant that an attack had to come that same year. “Any other interpretation of this fact is not conceivable,” he writes.

Suvorov sums up:

““By studying the archive records and the publicly available publications, I came to the conclusion that the transport [in 1941] to the frontier of millions of boots, munitions, and spare parts, and the deployment of millions of soldiers, and thousands of tanks and airplanes, could not have been a mistake, or a miscalculation, but rather that it must have been the result of a thoughtful policy . . .

““This process had as its goal the preparation of industry, the transport system, agriculture, the state territory, the Soviet population, and the Red Army to carry out the war of “liberation” in central and western Europe.

““In short, this process is called mobilization. It was a secret mobilization. The Soviet leadership prepared the Red Army and the entire country for the conquest of Germany and western Europe. The conquest of western Europe was the main reason that the Soviet Union unleashed the Second World War.

““The final decision to start the war was taken by Stalin on August 19, 1939.” . . .

Historians, notes Suvorov, do not adequately explain why Hitler decided to attack the Soviet Union at a time when Britain was still not subdued, thus engaging Germany in a dangerous two-front war. They often simply refer to Hitler’s lust for Lebensraum or “living space.” Actually, the Russian author writes, “Stalin gave Hitler no alternative way out. The secret [Soviet] mobilization was of such an enormous dimension that it would have been difficult to ignore.” Stalin’s “secret mobilization had reached such an extent that it could no longer be disguised. For Hitler the only possibility left was a preventive strike. Hitler beat Stalin to it by two weeks.” In short, given the situation, the only responsible recourse for the German leadership was to launch a preemptive strike.”

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s not fool ourselves any longer – the communists were responsible for World War II! It is plain that the Soviet desire was brutal, global, prolonged revolutionary war. The USSR was not an innocent bystander that Hitler ruthlessly attacked for “living space” or out of some genocidal aspirations. Hitler had no such aspirations, all the atrocity propaganda against him notwithstanding. Rather, it was Stalin, the world’s second greatest mass-murderer with at least 60 million notches on his belt, who prepared to attack and conquer Germany and all of Europe. It was the Soviet regime that plotted the enslavement of Europe and the world.

Author Joachim Hoffmann explained the Soviet’s global conquest ambitions this way:

The imperialistic power politics inherent in the Soviet political system from the very beginning . . . found striking external expression in the governmental coat of arms (gosudararstvennyj gerb) of the USSR, which was still current in 1991. The symbolism of this state coat of arms consists of a hammer and sickle menacingly and crudely encircling the whole world, surrounded by the following inflammatory words in several languages: “Proletarians of all Countries, Unite!” What is so poignantly made evident here is the goal, openly proclaimed by both Lenin and Stalin, of world domination by Soviet Communist power, or, as they called it, the “victory of Socialism all over the world.” It was none other than Lenin who, on December 6, 1920, stated in a speech that what was involved was to exploit the conflicts and contradictions between the capitalist states. To “incite” the capitalist states “against each other,” and “of using the knives of scoundrels, like the capitalist thieves, against each other,” on the grounds that “when two thieves fall out and fight, the honest man laughs last. As soon as we are strong enough to overthrow capitalism completely, we will immediately grab them by the throat.” “Victory of the Communist revolution in all countries is inevitable” he declared on March 6, 1920. “Victory will be ensured in the not-too distant future.”

Stalin was early devoted to this principle of Bolshevism, which was proven by his well-known speech before the Central Committee of the All-Union Communist Party (b) in July 1925. At that time, Stalin declared: “Should the war begin, we will not stand by inactively; we will enter the war, but we will enter as the last belligerent. We shall throw a weight on the scales that should be decisive.” This “Stalin Doctrine,” as Alexandr Nekrich has shown with admirable clarity, and regardless of statements to the contrary, was never abandoned. It retained its force, and the effort to “incite fascist Germany and the West against each other,” as stated by author Viacheslav I. Dashichev, became a genuine idée fixe with Stalin. In 1939, when the Red Army found itself increasing in strength due to a rapidly growing gigantic armaments program, Stalin believed that the time had come to intervene as a belligerent in the crisis of “world capitalism”” (Joachim Hoffmann, Stalin’s War of Extermination 1941-1945, 26-27).

communism640

No honest student of communism can conclude it’s a peaceful ideology. And no student of history can conclude that the Soviet Union was a peace-loving entity. Rather, from its inception, communism has suckled on blood. The Soviet Union was a warmongering, conquering empire that openly conquered state after hapless state. The states comprising the USSR had all been violently captured. And this record of barbarity doesn’t include the dozens of other nations – such as the United States, Japan, South Africa, Cuba, and Israel – that have suffered terror bombings and subversion at the hands of communist operatives.

As Stalin’s war preparations became increasingly obvious, Hitler secretly developed a plan to preempt the Soviet invasion and eliminate the communist cancer from Europe once and for all. Recall that in 1936 Germany and Japan signed the Anti-Comintern Pact, pledging to work together to defeat the scourge of international communism. Italy later signed onto the pact. Curious, is it not, that the three nations so demonized are the three which openly attempted to thwart communist machinations? The Anti-Comintern Pact stated:

In cognizance of the fact that the object of the Communistic International (the so-called Komintern) is the disintegration of, and the commission of violence against, existing States by the exercise of all means at its command,

Believing that the toleration of interference by the Communistic International in the internal affairs of nations not only endangers their internal peace and social welfare, but threatens the general peace of the world,

Desiring to co-operate for defense against communistic disintegration, have agreed as follows. . .”

Despite his non-aggression pact of necessity with Stalin in 1939 – which itself shows how far Hitler was willing to go for peace – Hitler hated communism, as any sane person does. In fact, it’s admitted by historians that Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) was elected to power on an anti-communist platform. Hitler correctly deemed Bolshevism the “red plague” and said it was a “Satanic” plot. Thus, when he saw Stalin preparing to violate the non-aggression pact and attack Germany, and, by extension, the whole of Western Europe, he decided to act.

communism690

To paraphrase a statement Hitler once made, when you see a person raising his rifle to his shoulder, you don’t wait for him to shoot you before you act; you strike first. Hitler believed the Napoleonic military doctrine that “he who hits first hits twice.” Accordingly, German troops were covertly transferred to the Eastern border with Soviet Russia in Poland and arrayed for battle. On June 22, 1941, Hitler launched the largest invasion in world history – Operation Barbarossa. As we have seen, Viktor Suvorov estimates that Hitler beat Stalin to the punch by about two weeks.

As with Poland, France, and Britain, so with Russia – Hitler did not desire war. Yet, Soviet policy had made war inevitable. Knowing his inferiority in numbers, Hitler decided to strike first and foil Stalin’s plans. The morning of the invasion, Hitler addressed his nation and informed them of the attack. He explained:

When on Sept. 3, 1939, the German Reich received the English declaration of war there was repeated anew a British attempt to render impossible every beginning of a consolidation and thereby of Europe’s rise, by fighting whatever power on the Continent was strongest at any given time. . . .

Never did the German people harbor hostile feeling against the peoples of Russia. However, for over ten years Jewish Bolshevist rulers had been endeavoring from Moscow to set not only Germany but all Europe aflame. At no time ever did Germany attempt to carry her National Socialist Weltanschauung into Russia, but on the contrary Jewish Bolshevist rulers in Moscow unswervingly endeavored to foist their domination upon us and other European peoples, not only by ideological means but above all with military force.

The consequences of the activity of this regime were nothing but chaos, misery and starvation in all countries. I, on the other hand, have been striving for twenty years with a minimum of intervention and without destroying our production, to arrive at a new Socialist order in Germany which not only eliminates unemployment but also permits the worker to receive an ever greater share of the fruits of his labor.

The success of this policy of economic and social reconstruction of our people, which by systematically eliminating differences of rank and class, has a true peoples’ community as the final aim of the world.

It was therefore only with extreme difficulty that I brought myself in August, 1939, to send my Foreign Minister to Moscow in an endeavor there to oppose the British encirclement policy against Germany. . . .

Victory in Poland which was won by German troops exclusively caused me to address yet another peace offer to the Western Powers. It was refused owing to efforts of international and Jewish warmongers. . . .

. . . there resulted British-Soviet Russian cooperation intended mainly at the tying up of such powerful forces in the east that radical conclusion of the war in the west, particularly as regards aircraft, could no longer be vouched for by the German High Command.

Stalin34

Churchill, FDR, and Stalin

This, however, was in line with the objects not only of the British but also of the Soviet Russian policy, for both England and Soviet Russia intend to let this war go on for as long as possible in order to weaken all Europe and render it progressively more impotent. . . .

Today something like 160 Russian divisions are standing at our frontiers. For weeks constant violations of this frontier have taken place, not only affecting us but from the far north down to Rumania.

Russian airmen consider it sport nonchalantly to overlook these frontiers, presumably to prove to us that they already feel themselves masters of these territories.

During the night of June 17 to June 18 Russian patrols again penetrated into the Reich’s territory and could only be driven back after prolonged firing. This has brought us to the hour when it is necessary for us to take steps against this plot devised by the Jewish Anglo-Saxon warmongers and equally the Jewish rulers of the Bolshevist center in Moscow.

German people! At this moment a march is taking place that, as regards extent, compares with the greatest the world hitherto has seen. United with their Finnish comrades, the fighters of the victory of Narvik are standing in the Northern Arctic. German divisions commanded by the conqueror of Norway, in cooperation with the heroes of Finnish freedom, under their marshal, are protecting Finnish soil.

Formations of the German Eastern Front extend from East Prussia to the Carpathians. German and Rumanian soldiers are united under Chief of State Antonescu from the banks of the Pruth along the lower reaches of the Danube to the shores of the Black Sea. The task of this front, therefore, no longer is the protection of single countries, but the safeguarding of Europe and thereby the salvation of all. . . .

May God help us especially in this fight!”

Let me quickly add that lest anyone think Hitler was being anti-Semitic in his statements, he was merely citing the fact that most communists at the time were Jews and that most Western governments were influenced by radical Jews and Zionists. This is true. Truth is not anti-Semitic. Facts are not hateful. Statistics have no prejudice. Accept it or deny it; it doesn’t change the reality. And the source of information also has no bearing on its validity.

“The war is his fault!”

As Hitler noted, a gigantic number of Soviet Red Army divisions had amassed along Germany’s border. This included some two million paratroopers – the largest number of airborne soldiers ever assembled. Do you use airborne divisions in defense? No. You use them in offensive warfare. Soviet formations were set up in such a manner that attack could have been their only possible use.

When the Germans smashed through the Soviet lines, they easily outflanked, surrounded, captured, or killed massive quantities of men and materiel because they had set up no meaningful defenses. After all, their purpose was invasion, not defense. German soldiers recounted driving day after day past lines of tanks and supplies that had been brought forward in preparation for the Soviet invasion of Europe. Hitler himself was shocked at the unprecedented scale of Soviet buildup. In a private conversation with Finnish General Mannerheim in mid 1942, Hitler revealed that the German military had already destroyed a staggering 34,000 Soviet tanks! He said:

They have the most extensive armament that could ever be conceive by man. So, had someone told me that a state can send 35,000 tanks to the battle, then I would have said: “You are out of your mind” . . . If one of my generals had told me that here a state could possess 35,000 tanks, then I would have said: “You, my dear sir, you are seeing double, or ten-fold. It is madness, you are seeing apparitions.” We had not thought it possible. I have already told you that we have discovered factories, the one in Kramatorskaja for instance was just two years ago only a farming village – we had no idea. Today, the site has a tank factory, which was to employ 30,000 workers in its first phase and when fully completed, 60,000 workers. One single tank factory! . . . One gigantic factory!”

Mannerheim responded that the Soviets had had twenty years to produce this massive force and that all their funds had been spent on their armaments. Hitler again said that he previously had no idea the Soviet buildup was so huge. But, he said, even if he had known, “the decision [to attack] I surely would have taken, because there was really no other possibility.” He felt his hand was force because, as he said later in the conversation, the Soviet demands “quite evidently meant for ultimately dominating Europe.”

The invasion caught Stalin completely off-guard. Yes, he had intelligence about a German buildup. He was warned about a possible attack. But he was preparing to attack first and thought nothing of it. So, when his two-year war preparations had been upended, he reeled in disbelief. He urgently courted American aid. FDR, a kindred spirit, immediately and illegally launched the Lend-Lease program. Lend-Lease was nothing but a life-saver to Soviet Russia. Lend-Lease, and only Lend-Lease, prevented a Soviet defeat. In Russia, I personally talked to a Red Army tanker who had fought in WWII. He gave it as his opinion that without the American tanks and supplies – many billions of dollars worth – the Russian effort would have collapsed. I concur.

Germans examine a destroyed Soviet tank

It’s one of the great tragedies of history that the United States backed the Soviet Union against Germany in World War II. It’s also a tragedy that Hitler lost his fight against the Moscow-based Marxist conspirators. If Germany had won – and she would have if America had not intervened on behalf of the Soviets – neither China nor North Korea would have turned communist. There would have been no Korean War, no Vietnam War, no Cold War. Cuba would never have gone Red. Latin America would not have devolved into chaos. The Palestinian Liberation Organization – a Soviet creation – would never have risen. South Africa would not have been plunged into white genocide by the black communists led by the convicted Marxist terrorist Nelson Mandela. International terrorism – another Soviet creation – would never have plagued mankind. America would not have succumbed to Soviet subversion of our education system, Hollywood, economy, etc. And we would not currently be looking down the barrel of a third world war with Russia, China, and their warlike allies. The blood of many millions stains FDR’s hands – and the hands of those who advocated for American involvement in the Second World War.

This history of war and bloodshed is part of the fruit of World War II. The communists throughout the world – in Moscow, Beijing, London, New York, Washington, D.C., Paris, Tel Aviv, and elsewhere – have benefited from this bedlam. Said another way, the communist conspiracy was the beneficiary of World War II. Soviet Russia was and conspiracy’s primary base of operations. What did the Russians gain from the war? I turn again to Viktor Suvorov who observed:

The Soviet Union entered World War II as an aggressor. Poland, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Romania – all the western neighbors of the Soviet Union – fell victim to the Red Army. During talks in Berlin, Stalin’s envoy Molotov demanded strongholds in Yugoslavia, in the Adriatic Sea, in Greece, in the Bosporus and Dardanelles, in the Persian Gulf; he demanded that countries south of the Baku-Batumi line, in the direction of the Persian Gulf, be given over to Soviet control, including eastern Turkey, northern Iran, and Iraq. He also declared the Soviet Union’s interest in southern Bukovina. Molotov constantly asked Hitler and Ribbentrop whether Germany had reconsidered its position on the fate of Finland, seeing that the Soviet Union was not going to let that country be independent. Finally, Stalin’s major demand at the Berlin talks in November 1940 was for Germany to acquiesce to a Soviet military presence in Bulgaria. Molotov added, in a conversation with Hitler, that “the USSR was ready to support Bulgaria in its desire for an outlet to the Aegean Sea, and considered said desire to be just.” Stalin never specified which countries his puppet Bulgaria would have to invade to reach this outlet – Greece, Turkey, or both. . . .

The Soviet Union finished World War II as an aggressor as well. It was the only country that expanded its borders as a result of World War II. Stalin annexed Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, northern Bukovina, western Ukraine, and western Byelorussia, as well as parts of eastern Prussia with Koenigsberg, Trans-Carpathian Ukraine, the Kuril Islands, South Sakhalin, and Bessarabia. Under the banner of the “great patriotic war,” Stalin punished entire peoples and nations. On Stalin’s orders, all the Chechens, Ingushes, Crimean Tatars, Volga Germans, and other peoples were transported to empty frozen fields or waterless, lifeless steppes, and abandoned there to die. . . .

The Red Army came to Central Europe with the supposedly noble goal of liberating it from the Nazis, but it left only after establishing puppet governments in most of those countries. Poland, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Romania, Yugoslavia, part of Austria, and Albania were forced under Stalin’s control, as well as China, North Korea, and Vietnam in Asia. On July 22, 1945, the Soviet delegation suggested that the Soviet Union, the United States, and Great Britain separately or jointly oversee the former Italian colonies in Africa and the Mediterranean. On July 23, Stalin demanded the right to create Soviet military naval bases in the Black Sea region, in the straits of Bosporus and Dardanelles. He also wanted parts of Turkey – the Kars and Ardagan regions – to belong to the Soviet Union. Stalin tried to take control of West Berlin by strangling it through blockade. Soviet agents appeared in France, Italy, and Greece . . . Stalin declared northern Iran to be a part of Azerbaijan, and right until the end of his life never gave up trying to take control of this province. Stalin set up the People’s Democratic Republic of Southern Azerbaijan, and the Kurdish People’s Democratic Republic, respectively in northern and western Iran” (Suvorov, Chief Culprit, 278-279).

1rww3ryv32j21

Something Suvorov said is crucial: Soviet Russia was “the only country that expanded its borders as a result of World War II.” The United States did not expand its borders because of World War II, though we saddly expanded our military footprint. Britain lost its empire. France was diminished. Germany was carved up and divvied out to other nations. Poland was wholly occupied by the Soviets, along with all of Eastern Europe and the Baltics. China succumbed to Marxist machinations. Japan lost many of its territories. Italy was weakened. And so forth.

Not one country was “liberated” by the Allies. Not one. Not Japan. Not Germany. Not Italy. Not Poland. Not France. In every case, the Allies demolished these states – bombing them to rubble. They firebombed hundreds of thousands of women and children for no reason in Germany and Japan. They inflicted more casualties on the French during the “liberation” than Germany did in their so-called “invasion.” What the Allies brought with them was death and destruction, enslavement and embarrassment. Marxist regimes were set up all over the world. Mass purges happened. Millions died as a result of Allied actions.

After the war, millions of Germans were murdered by the Allies. Yes, you read that correctly – after the war millions of Germans were murdered by the Allies. Did your history teacher teach you that? They were starved to death in Eisenhower’s death camps, butchered by Jews in Eastern Europe, raped and massacred by Russian hordes, and worked to death in the Siberian GULAG. Considering this, was Germany “liberated”? Are the German people better off now than under Hitler? No! All of Europe is worse off than before the Allies waged war against Germany and plunged the world into communist chaos.

How is it possible for anyone to look at this record of imperialist expansion and not conclude that the Soviets and their Western fellow travelers were the primary beneficiaries of the war? World War Two was a coup for Russia. It was a godsend for the communist conspiracy! It was a boon for the international financiers. When you ask the age-old question “cui bono?” – who benefited? – there’s only one proper response: International communism.

communism4

“Bolshevism without the mask”

The only other group that really gained anything from the war was the Jews who, because of Adolf Hitler’s generous help between 1933-1939 (see the Haavara Agreement, or Transfer Agreement), gained and built up Palestine. German help was so essential in setting up the Israeli state that, during the war, the Zionist militia known as Lehi offered to fight with the Germans against the British who they saw as impeding their settlement in Palestine. The Zionist desire for Palestine, and the role it played in Jewish haranguing for war, should not be discounted. It played a perceptible role in both world wars. However, even Israel – which is not God’s state but a corrupt, terrorist regime – is compromised by the international conspiracy. The Russian mafia (i.e. Soviet intelligence repackaged) dominates Israel and runs it like it’s own “mini-state” (Robert Friedman, Red Mafiya: How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America, 276-282). And many of the Israeli elite are die-hard Marxists who emigrated to Israel from the Soviet Union.

Again, cui bono? The communist world revolution benefited, just as Stalin planned. The murderers in the Kremlin benefited. The collaborators on Wall Street benefited. The Fabians in D.C. and London benefited. The Jewish Marxists benefited. In short, the international clique of gangsters who hold the world by the hair of its head benefited. Humanity were the big losers. And we will continue to lose until we realize that nearly everything we’ve been taught about World War II is a lie – a direct inversion of reality.

Today, the deep wounds of the Second World War are still felt. They’ve never healed. They were never intended to heal because the work of world revolution is not yet finished. The internationalists need a world drenched in hatred, division, and war in order to accomplish their transformation of society into a global Marxist cult.

communism43

Russia and China stand today in a dominant position politically and militarily precisely because of the gains made by communists in WWII. The Chinese dragon’s aggression has stirred up fear in Asia while the Russian bear’s violence and threats have created uncertainty in Europe. An article published one day ago in The Conversation made this excellent remark:

For years now, historical arguments have been raging throughout Europe, with the fault lines often running between Russia and other eastern European countries such as Poland and the Baltic states, or the Czech Republic. They centre on whether or not the Soviet Union should be seen in these countries as a liberator from Nazism, or as the oppressive bringer of communism. . . .

As long as eastern Europe feels threatened by Russia, there will be no agreement on what “liberation” in 1945 meant.”

There was no “liberation.” The world has been in chains for decades. Russia and China are the task masters. They are supported financially and technologically by their cohorts and dupes in the West. Through this pincer strategy, the communists have herded mankind together and are moving in like wolves for the kill. Fortunately, the American People own millions of guns and have not yet totally forsaken the Constitution. This is the only thing holding back the full tsunami of Red tyranny. The moment Americans give up their means of self-defense and allow the Constitution to fall by the wayside is the moment the global Marxist will strike.

Dear reader, please understand that history is vastly different than it appears. World War II was not planned by Germany, perpetrated by Germany, or won by Germany. It was planned, perpetrated, and won by the communists and their collaborators in Britain, France, Poland, and the United States. Victory Day, therefore, does not commemorate victory for humanity, but victory for the communist jackals. It is Victory Day for the Bolshevik butchers who snuffed out tens of millions of lives during the war for the sake of world domination. It is celebration of the Elite’s conquest of a large portion of the globe. It’s a damnable holiday.

The communists are our mortal enemies. They, and they alone, seek the total subjugation of the world. They, and they alone, unleashed the hell of war on Europe and Asia. They, and they alone, bear responsibility for the devastation, polarization, and misery that have resulted from that vicious war. They are the enemies of mankind.

Society cannot survive while the communists exist. They’re parasites draining the blood from the body of mankind. They’re hyenas who seek to rip up apart. There can be no peaceful coexistence with people who want to kill you. Speaking of communists, Ezra Taft Benson said:

We must put off our rose-colored glasses, quit repeating these soothing but entirely false statements about world unity and brotherhood, and look at the world as it is, not as we would like it to become. Such an objective, and perhaps painful, survey leads to but one conclusion. We would be committing national suicide to surrender any of our independence, and chain ourselves to other nations in such a sick and turbulent world. . . .

The world is smaller, you say? True, it is, but if one finds himself locked in a house with maniacs, thieves and murderers – even a small house – he does not increase his chances of survival by entering into alliances with his potential attackers and becoming dependent upon them for protection to the point where he is unable to defend himself. Perhaps the analogy between nations and maniacs is a little strong for some to accept. But if we put aside our squeamishness over strong language, and look hard at the real world in which we live, the analogy is quite sound in all but the rarest exceptions” (Ezra Taft Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, 154-155).

Compromise with communists? Never! You can’t compromise with maniacs, thieves, and murderers. Hitler understood the dilemma and how to act. The Germans of the 30s and 40s understood what must be done in the face of an existential threat.

Hitler112

We need to finally learn that it was German blood that prevented all of Europe from being consumed by the Red Beast in 1941. Mankind owes Germany a massive debt of gratitude and an enormous apology for the way we have demeaned and hated them for all these years. This Victory Day we should admit our nation’s guilt in aiding the communist conspiracy and resolve to pick up where Hitler left off. Yes, we should mobilize and annihilate the supreme destroyers of civilization – the international communists.

I end the way I started, by citing Joseph Goebbels. Goebbels affirmed: “It is a mistake to believe that people cannot take the truth. They can.” What I’ve presented today most likely conflicts with what you’ve been taught about World War II. What I’ve presented is perhaps difficult to swallow. But it’s the truth, so help me God. So, I ask you, can you take it?

Kent State False Flag

[T]he purpose of all this agitation at Kent State was to recruit as much cannon fodder as possible, and then to provoke a ‘major confrontation’. When it came, it would be neither accidental nor spontaneous.” – Alan Stang, Kent State: Proof to Save the Guardsmen, 1974.

On May Fourth, 1970, America was hit with a cruel false-flag attack – the so-called “Kent State Massacre.” The official story goes something like this: A group of peaceful, unarmed protesters were suddenly fired upon, in an unprovoked attack, by a group of evil National Guardsmen. The problem with this narrative is that it’s completely false. Below is a concise version of the real story behind the Kent State false flag.

communism449

First, what is a “false flag”? Wikipedia gives us this definition:

A false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.

The term “false flag” originally referred to pirate ships that flew flags of countries as a disguise to prevent their victims from fleeing or preparing for battle.”

I deem the Kent State event a false flag because it has been used to deceive people into thinking that the National Guard, and, by extension, the U.S. government, is responsible for the shooting. This event is held up as indicative of oppression and militarism. The Kent State fairy tale is hauled out every time someone wants to show how “inherently evil” the U.S. system of government supposedly is. In actual fact, communist agents were responsible for organizing the protests and provoking the shooting. Not only did they provoke it with words, they drew first blood!

In the documentary film No Place to Hide: The Strategy and Tactics of Terrorism,” hosted by expert researcher G. Edward Griffin, the history of communist-sponsored terrorism is laid bare. The communists perfected the art of false-flag attacks and used them routinely across the globe. Indeed, the Soviets invented international terrorism and are the hidden hand behind most so-called “Islamic” terrorism today. This was once a commonly understood fact. Among the stories discussed in “No Place to Hide” is the Kent State false flag. Kent State was just one of many communist operations aimed at subverting America and poisoning public opinion against American anti-communist efforts.

Student Hurls Tear Gas Back

On May 1, 1970 – that is, May Day, the most significant communist holiday – indoctrinated university students at Kent State began a protest of America’s involvement in Vietnam. The protest was organized by a host of groups, including the Kent State Committee to End the War which was advised by Communist Party USA member Dr. Sidney Jackson. At least one student later told the FBI that a university professor threatened the students with failing grades if they did not participate in the demonstration. Other faculty members were known to have participated in the violence. A former student of Associate Professor Thomas Lough even reported that the subversive professor had passed out literature showing students how to make Molotov cocktails!

Contrary to the idealistic anti-war demonstration depicted in the controlled media, the Kent State protesters were rude, raucous, and violent. Over the course of four days, the protesters smashed windows, robbed a local jewelry store, publicly burned the American flag, started fires in the streets, and even burned down the ROTC building on campus.

When firemen arrived to put out the ROTC fire, the rabid protesters pelted them with rocks and slashed their fire hoses. Hash pipes were later found outside the ROTC building where 600 student rioters watched the fire in glee, heckling ROTC cadets and throwing objects at the building. A reporter named Terence Oblander was warned by an unidentified man in the crowd that he would be murdered if he took pictures of the event. The protesters later skirmished with police troopers when they arrived to protect the firemen, hitting them with bottles. The rioters were finally dispersed with tear gas.

The riot was so out-of-hand that the mayor of Kent declared a state of emergency and the Ohio National Guard was called in. When the National Guard arrived, they were cursed at and assaulted with bricks and chunks of wood containing nails. The protesters also threw feces on the Guardsmen. More than sixty Guardsmen and police were injured by the rioting protesters. This is what the media and uninformed commentators call a “peaceful” protest by “unarmed” people!

The reality is, as noted, that the mindless protesters were riled up and spurred on by dedicated communist revolutionaries. The communist agitation at Kent State actually began years earlier. In “No Place to Hide,” we find this commentary about the escalations leading up to May 4, 1970:

In 1970, Kent State had been the object of an intensive organizational drive on behalf of the Weathermen faction of the SDS. For over two years, a steady stream of professional revolutionaries appeared before student groups. Weatherman Bernadette Dohrn told them that there soon would be shooting on campus and admonished them to arm themselves for rebellion. Another speaker was Jerry Rubin, who said: “The first part of the Yippie program is to kill your parents. And, I mean that quite literally, because, until you’re prepared to kill your parents, you’re not ready to change this country.”

Kent State11

The SDS on campus had distributed copies of what it called the “Organizers’ Manual for the Spring Offensive.” The manual said: “Beginning with guerrilla theatre actions in dorms, we can escalate to disrupting classes, street marches, quick assaults on buildings, etc., before moving to the major confrontation of the struggle.”

In an SDS pamphlet distributed among students in April of 1969, we find this blunt statement of intent: “We’re no longer asking you to come to help us make a revolution. We’re telling you that the revolution has begun, and the only choice you have to make is which side you’re on.””

When these revolutionary escalations are taken into account, one might say that the Kent State shooting was a pre-planned event – a foregone conclusion in the minds of communist radicals. They wanted a violent confrontation that they could spin as evidence of America’s oppressive imperialism and “fascism.” They were not only prepared to initiate “guerrilla . . . actions” and conduct “assaults,” but to lose some of their dupes who could be made into martyrs for the communist cause.

The Kent State communists were clearly ready to commit violence. The above Jerry Rubin statement about murdering one’s parents was made in an inflammatory speech on April 10, 1970 – a mere three weeks before the violent rioting erupted. Rubin was a leader in the communist organization the Youth International Party (i.e. Yippies). A slightly larger excerpt from his Marxism-filled speech reads:

The most oppressed people in this country are not the blacks, not the poor, but the middle class. They don’t have anything to rise up against and fight against. We will have to invent new laws to break. . . . The first part of the Yippie program is to kill you parents. . . . Until you’re prepared to kill your parents, you’re not ready to change this country. Our parents are our first oppressors” (Penny Rimbaud, Last of the Hippies: An Hysterical Romance, 38).

Inventing grievances and concocting “oppression” is part and parcel of the communist strategy. They always seek to turn people into victims. If you can convince people they’re victims, they can be radicalized. If they believe “the man” is oppressing them, they can be encouraged to fight back. In this way, the Kent State protesters played into communist hands and were pawns in their deadly game.

ayersfbi

Much of the agitation at Kent State was conducted by Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) – a radical Marxist organization responsible for violence all across America. The SDS was linked to Soviet intelligence. It served as a cover for domestic terrorist operations. The infamous Weather Underground grew out of the SDS. It is the Weather Underground, you’ll recall, that was responsible for dozens of bombings. William Ayers was one of the founding members and served time in prison for his connection to a bombing in San Francisco that killed a police sergeant. The unrepentant Marxist Ayers later became a close advisor of Barack Obama. Obama, in fact, launched his campaign for the presidency at Ayers’ house in Chicago (unsurprisingly, Chicago is the headquarters of the Communist Party USA).

Focusing again on the Kent State false-flag provocation, over a thousand pages of FBI documents classified for several decades but finally released in 2010 show that the communist protesters were acting on orders. For instance, burning down the ROTC building was not a spontaneous event – protesters received an order from their communist bosses to torch it. A full day before the ROTC blaze, one riot leader on the ground was overheard telling another: “We just got the word. We’re going to burn the ROTC building.” They were also overheard discussing flares. Flares, Molotov cocktails, or gas-soaked rags, were alternatively reported as possible causes for the blaze.

FBI and police reports show that numerous non-student agitators were present and spent their time working the crowd into a frenzy. We know some of their names, including Thomas Foglesong and Jerry Rupe. It is known that at least two carloads of provocateurs from Illinois arrived at Kent State to fuel the flames of the riot. Some identified these outside agitators as members of the Weather Underground terrorist outfit. Perhaps it was these professional Marxist provocateurs who were seen coordinating the mobs with walkie-talkies. Or perhaps it was they who locked arms behind the herd of ignorant protesters and pushed them towards the National Guard’s position. Or maybe one of them was the rioter seen wearing a white shirt with the communist red fist and SDS logo at the burning ROTC building. Either way, Kent State was not an organic demonstration but a planned and coordinated riot.

Kent State6

As noted earlier, the rioters drew first blood. Not only did they hit firemen, police, and Guardsmen with bricks, bottles, and wood, but a sniper was known to be operating in coordination with the protesters. At least one full day before the shootings, reports were circulating of a sniper. One ROTC cadet in fact reported hearing three shots fired just before the Guardsmen began firing on May 4th. He said these shots were from a different caliber gun than the M-1 Garands used by the Guardsmen. The same cadet witnessed protesters with baseball bats and other weapons descending on the Guardsmen’s position before the fatal shootings. Others reported that some of the students were chanting “Kill! Kill!

Additionally, bullet holes were found in a tree and a statue. The shots had been fired fro the direction of the protesters; that is, in the direction of the Guardsmen. It may have been only two or three shots, but at least two shots were fired at the National Guardsmen before they returned fire in self-defense, obliterating the entire narrative of hapless protesters attacked by savage military personnel.

Peace, Love, and Murdering Parents” perhaps would have been a more appropriate catchphrase for Kent State’s hippie protesters. A group of disaffected college students prepared to kill their own parents aren’t concerned about the well-being of National Guardsmen and law enforcement. Peace-loving flower children don’t carry baseball bats, rob jewelry stores, throw bags of feces on law enforcement, hurl bricks and razor-blade embedded wood at guards, burn down buildings, engage in rioting, or fire guns at people. And they certainly don’t link arms with, or take orders from, communists and known terrorist groups. So much for the “flower power” myth!

If you were one of those who, until this moment, believed the narrative that peaceful protesters were indiscriminately murdered by vicious Guardsmen at Kent State in 1970, you may redeem yourself by sharing this article. Thomas Jefferson said that “no nation is permitted to live in ignorance with impunity” (Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Board of Visitors Minutes, 1821). The longer we coddle our favorite myths, the harder it will be to extricate ourselves from the deep pit we’ve dug ourselves into. Don’t give in any longer to sensationalism; rather, learn the facts and draw the logical conclusions.

the-only-good-communist-a-derd-communist-17611682

We are overdue for a new great awakening. It’s long past time we acknowledged the communist cancer that gnaws on our vitals. It’s time, dear reader, to admit that communists are the mortal enemies of every Liberty-loving American. It’s time to declare that communists have no place in America and that their vile dogmas are anathema to Americanism, constitutionalism, and Christianity. It’s time to rally behind the standard of truth and bring the real culprits of the Kent State false flag to justice.

The Order of Illuminati

May Day is a holiday celebrated by communists and pagans throughout the world. The day was chosen by communists as their special day for multiple reasons, but one stands out; namely, because May 1, 1776 was the date of the founding of the conspiracy’s predecessor, the Order of Illuminati. The world-wide communist conspiracy grew out of the Illuminati cabal and is its modern standard bearer. Today we will examine the objectives and principles of the Illuminati-communist conspiracy.

conspiracy47

We begin with a few basic facts about the Illuminati. First, it is beyond dispute that the Order of Illuminati existed and was founded in Bavaria. It is beyond dispute that the Bavarian government attempted to suppress the Order. And it is also beyond dispute, though “experts” lie to conceal the fact, that the Order continued on in other locations and under different names after it was ostensibly suppressed in Bavaria.

The Illuminati’s founder was a man named Adam Weishaupt, who used the alias Spartacus in his correspondence. Weishaupt was an ethnic Jew raised and trained by Catholics and Jesuits. We know he studied the Kabbalah, that is, Jewish occult mysticism. He had a working knowledge of Masonry and was later initiated into the Strict Observance Lodge in Munich. He also worked, until his conspiratorial activities were uncovered, at the University of Ingolstadt as a professor of Catholic canon law.

On May 1, 1776, Franz Anton von Massenhausen, Max Edler von Merz, Bauhof, and Andreas Sutor joined with Weishaupt in his conspiracy. Together, they formed a society called in German, Perfectibilisten, or Perfectibilists (sometimes rendered as Perfectionists). The secret society later came to be known as the Order of Illuminati.

Weishaupt and his fellow initiates in the cabal wove occult ideas together with Masonic rituals and added Christian window dressing. Their aims, however, were anything but Christian. Ostensibly, the Illuminsts were philanthropists fighting for the betterment of society. Indeed, they sought the “perfection” of man, similar to how the communists wanted to create what they called “the new Soviet man.” They spoke of Liberty and fraternity and put a premium on education, or illumination. Their chief symbol was a symbol of wisdom, the Owl of Minerva – the very same used by elitist Bohemian Club today. The outward veneer, however, concealed a writhing darkness within.

The ultimate goal of the Order was to usher in a one-world government and one-world religion. This world government would be a type of elite oligarchy or dictatorship of an enlightened, or “illuminated,” few who had shaken themselves free from the dogmas, superstitions, and chains of established religions and governmental systems. Naturally, the Illuminists would sit at the pinnacle of this Platonic system of philosopher kings. Their religion would be a type of ecumenical occultism similar to that set forth by the Theosophists and other New Agers who look to Lord Maitreya and the Hierarchy of Ascended Masters for spiritual guidance. At the end of the day, what the Illuminati promoted was Anti-Christ.

Illuminati51

Because of his occult persuasion, Weishaupt chose a significant occult holiday on which to found his Order. In his unsurpassed book on the Illuminati, titled Perfectibilists, Terry Melanson gave some background to the May 1 origin. He wrote:

The chosen date of May 1st for the Order’s birth also has semiotic significance. Traditionally, May Day celebrations are a remnant of fire and sun worship, variously known as Beltane in the British Isles, and Walpurgisnacht in Germany and northern Europe. Weishaupt was aware of these “fire festivals” on the first of May, and instituting his Order on that day – in tandem with professing fire worship as the religion of Illuminism – was, symbolically speaking, a stroke of genius” (Terry Melanson, Perfectibilists: The 18th Century Bavarian Order of the Illuminati, 218).

It is not my present purpose to discuss the pagan aspects of Illuminism in significant detail or to explain the histories of Walpurgisnacht or Beltane, though some explanation of the former will follow. However, one must never forget that Illuminism is synonymous with Satanism, occultism, and paganism. The global Marxian-Illuminati conspiracy is, as the great statesman J. Reuben Clark, Jr. referred to it, “organized paganism” (J. Reuben Clark, Jr., “The Task Ahead,” General Conference, October, 1959).

In his foundational book Fire in the Minds of Men, the late author and professor James Billington, who served as the Librarian of Congress, explained the Illuminati’s occult and Masonic connections like this:

The revolutionaries’ primitive vision of the world as a dualistic struggle between the forces of darkness and of light may originate in the neo-Manichaean view of Weishaupt’s followers that their elect group of “illuminated ones” was engaged in struggle with “the sons of darkness,” their categorical name for all outside the order. The name for the order was initially uncertain (Perfectibilists was used and Bees considered); but the name Illuminist was apparently chosen from the image of a sun radiating illumination to outer circles. At the very center within the inner circle of Areopagites burned a candle symbolizing the solar source of all illumination. The Zoroastrian Manichaean cult of fire was central to the otherwise eclectic symbolism of the Illuminists; their calendar was based on Persian rather than classical or Christian models.

Pseudonyms and symbols, which had precise esoteric significance in Masonic lodges, became deliberate instruments of camouflage for the Illuminists. Ingolstadt was both Eleusis and Ephesus; Munich was Athens; Vienna, Rome. Weishaupt’s own Illuminist name of Spartacus, the leader of a slave revolt in ancient Rome, provided a hint of revolutionary commitment; but his original key collaborators took the names of the Greek Ajax and the Egyptian Danaus respectively, and other names ranged from Tamerlane to Confucius.

The Illuminists attempted to use the ferment and confusion in Freemasonry for their own ends. Weishaupt joined a Masonic lodge in Munich in 1777; and attempted to recruit “commandos” (groups of followers) from within the lodges of the Bavarian capital. Late in I780, Weishaupt’s campaign spread to all of Germany and to the pseudo-knightly higher orders of Masonry with the entrance into Weishaupt’s inner circle of Baron Adolph Knigge. He was a native of Hanover and a leader of occultism in Frankfurt, which soon replaced Munich as the leading “colony” of the movement. For five intensive years (until Knigge left the order in July 1785), the Illuminists recruited largely among those who had belonged to the most popular of the German higher Masonic orders, the Strict Observance. The Illuminist technique was, first of all, to discredit the more conservative rival order by fair means (helping the conference of occult orders at Wilhelmsbad in 1782 to determine that the Strict Observance Lodges were not in fact descended from the Knights-Templars) and foul (arguing that the Strict Observance Lodges were secretly controlled by “unknown superiors” who were in fact Jesuits in disguise).

Illuminati-cover

The Illuminists coopted the organizational structure of their conservative Masonic rival; in the process, they acquired some of the mysterious allure that they had not possessed as an arid cult of rationalistic intellectuals. Illuminism also became much more political. Weishaupt appears to have initially seen Masonry as a kind of intermediate training ground for Illuminists – after they had entered the order but before they joined the secret inner circles” (James H. Billington, Fire in the Minds of Men, 94-95).

There’s a lot to unpackage and digest here. We won’t attempt it all today, but a few aspects deserve greater attention. There will be more on the Masonic connection shortly. At the moment, let’s focus on the matter of “the image of a sun radiating illumination to outer circles.”

The Illuminists saw themselves as the rising sun for mankind. They were to be the group who would bring light to the world and perfect mankind. They were the heralds of the dawn of a new day. It is particularly interesting, then, that the image of a rising sun was and is used by communists throughout the world. It is one of their most commonly used symbols.

Most notably, the emblem of the Soviet Union is a sun rising over the globe. Jordan Maxwell has done a lot of interesting research on the topic of ancient Egyptian sun worship (i.e. Aton/Aten worship) and its connection with world communism. Maxwell is virulently anti-Christian, however, so exercise caution when listening to him. Regardless, his research on the occult aspects of communism is quite noteworthy. Maxwell’s research confirms the link beyond any reasonable doubt.

ussa-national-emblem

As Billington mentioned above, the Illuminati deliberately aligned themselves with pagan traditions, calendars, dates, symbols, rituals, and rites. Much of this was borrowed from Masonry. Many believe Masonry to be a modern invention. In fact, it is quite ancient. Albert Churchward, a Mason, wrote extensively about Masonry’s Egyptian roots. In one book, he explained:

If Masonry had not its origin in the Sacred Mysteries of the Ancient Egyptians, how could these rites and ceremonies, signs and symbols, have found their way into it? These sacred mysteries were the same amongst the Priests of the Mayas in Central America and Peru in South America.

The passwords for the various degrees are the same, or have the same meaning; the signs and symbols are the same; and the Rituals are identical; which can be proved by any Brother who will take the trouble to learn to read the old hieroglyphic languages. . . .

From the downfall of the old Egyptian Empire, five thousand years ago, or more, up to the last few hundred years, we have passed through a dark and degenerate age. Then our altars were thrown down, our Brotherhood scattered over the face of the earth, and some of our secrets were lost to many. But there were remnants of the Brotherhood who went forth from Egypt into various parts of the world, carrying the true doctrines and secrets with them, some one part, some another.

. . . the so-called Lodges in England and Scotland were formed by a scattered few, who, to avoid the terrors of the law, and to keep their religious rites and ceremonies pure and unsullied, as they had received them from the parent source – old Egypt – met in secret places and had resort to private meetings. This, therefore, was one original source” (Albert E. Churchward, The Arcana of Freemasonry: A History of Masonic Signs and Symbols, 108-108, 111-112).

The “Brotherhood” of Masonry influenced the “Brotherhood” of the Illuminati – especially in the way it presented its rituals. Masonry is an imitation of God’s Priesthood and, as such, it’s fitting that Lucifer’s priesthood has adopted similar trappings.

Freemasonry70

A Masonic initiation

Two authors gave us an insight into how the conspiratorial Brotherhood operates, keeps its members in line, and consolidates power. They observed:

It is impossible to achieve high levels of initiation within Freemasonry unless one is hand picked by those of the higher degrees. In order to do this, one must meet their criteria of wealth, status, social class and character type. By the time the twentieth degree is reached a minimum of professional level income is required to fund progression through the system. The result of this financially dependent progression is that the top level members of the Brotherhood elite are among the richest, and most powerfully influential people in the world. They are also responsible, directly and indirectly for most of the money/power based crime such as the illegal drugs industry, political assassinations, Satanism and mind control which goes on every day, all round the world.

At the apex of the pyramid of the Brotherhood are the select few who actually know the full agenda of the organisation. These privileged elite have become known as the ‘Illuminati’, which is Latin for ‘illuminated ones’. All other members (nearly five million world-wide) are ignorant of the true purpose of their individual organisation as a front for the Illuminati. Only the most suitable are selected to rise in the ranks, those recognised as being wealthy, ambitious and corrupt enough to perpetuate the ultimate goal which is world domination. No one but the Illuminati actually knows anything of importance and therefore cannot betray the game plan. Everyone else provides a front, a smoke screen of ignorance and misinformation and all must offer complete obedience to the will of their organisation or be banished (or worse). . . .

Betrayal of the Brotherhood is the worst crime possible in the eyes of its members and is ultimately punishable by death. The Brotherhood is all powerful: all top level members of the police and military forces around the world are placed there through the Brotherhood as Brotherhood tools. Judges and lawyers, media moguls, businessmen and politicians are recruited so that no member of the Brotherhood elite is ever in danger of being held accountable by the System for any crime or misdemeanour. The Brotherhood can, and quite literally does, get away with murder because it is also the law which opposes it. If a non-Brotherhood member should slip through the net and achieve high status then there are ways to ensure that such people are unable to achieve their full potential . . . It infiltrates every area of our society at all levels, but at the top, in the highest social and monetary bracket, the Brotherhood prevails almost in total. It is the single largest vehicle for the perpetuation of the Luciferic consciousness on Earth” (Ivan Fraser and Mark Beeston, “The Brotherhood and the Manipulation of Society”).

This description captures the essence of how the world power structure actually works. It correctly demonstrates that those in positions of power are often not those who deserve to be there, but those who have sworn allegiance to the “invisible hand,” as it’s sometimes called. The account also accords perfectly with what an ancient prophet-historian documented about the workings and goals of Satan’s secret societies. Of their selfish and diabolical goals, this ancient man of God wrote simply:

[I]t was the object of all those who belonged to [this] secret band to murder, and to rob, and to gain power, (and this was their secret plan, and their combination)” (Helaman 2:8).

zackcoverfullfinalresizePNG

This inspired writer then explained:

Satan did stir up the hearts of the more part of [them], insomuch that they did unite with those bands of robbers, and did enter into their covenants and their oaths, that they would protect and preserve one another in whatsoever difficult circumstances they should be placed, that they should not suffer for their murders, and their plunderings, and their stealings.

And it came to pass that they did have their signs, yea, their secret signs, and their secret words; and this that they might distinguish a brother who had entered into the covenant, that whatsoever wickedness his brother should do he should not be injured by his brother, nor by those who did belong to his band, who had taken this covenant.

And thus they might murder, and plunder, and steal, and commit whoredoms and all manner of wickedness, contrary to the laws of their country and also the laws of their God.

And whosoever of those who belonged to their band should reveal unto the world of their wickedness and their abominations, should be tried, not according to the laws of their country, but according to the laws of their wickedness, which had been give by [the society’s founders]. . . .

Now behold, those secret oaths and covenants . . . were put into the heart of [the founder] by that same being who did entice our first parents to partake of the forbidden fruit. . . .

And behold, it is he who is the author of all sin. And behold, he doth carry on his works of darkness and secret murder, and doth hand down their plots, and their oaths, and their covenants, and their plans of awful wickedness, from generation to generation according as he can get hold upon the hearts of the children of men” (Helaman 6:21-24, 26, 30).

When you read this ancient account and then examine the Order of Illuminati and its offshoots, you’re inevitably struck by the similarities and consistency. Their secret system of “justice,” that is, of disposing with defectors and making members toe the party line, is remarkably the same. And their tactics of murder and plunder are almost wholly identical through the ages. Referring to this ancient secret society, which was called the “Gadianton Robbers,” and comparing it with the modern communist-Illuminati conspiracy, the esteemed Ezra Taft Benson declared:

When all of the trappings of propaganda and pretense have been pulled aside, the exposed hard-core structure of modern communism is amazingly similar to the ancient Book of Mormon record of secret societies such as the Gadiantons. In the ancient American civilization there was no word which struck greater terror to the hearts of the people than the name of the Gadiantons. It was a secret political party which operated as a murder cult. Its object was to infiltrate legitimate government, plant its officers in high places, and then seize power and live off the spoils appropriated from the people. (It would start out as a small group of “dissenters” and by using secret oaths with the threat of death for defectors (Hel. 11:25-26) it would gradually gain a choke hold on the political and economic life of whole civilizations.)

The object of the Gadiantons, like modern communists, was to destroy the existing government and set up a ruthless criminal dictatorship over the whole land. . . .

The stratagems of the leaders of these societies are amazingly familiar to anyone who has studied the tactics of modern communist leaders” (Ezra Taft Benson, “The American Heritage of Freedom – A Plan of God,” General Conference, October, 1961).

Illuminati17

The honest observer must conclude that Satan’s game plan has remained the same. The actors have changed, the tools of the trade have changed, and the outward names and forms vary, but the core ideology, aims, and essence have been handed down from generation to generation and today dominate our world. Whether you look at the Masons, Jesuits, communists, New Agers, Sabbatean Kabbalists, or others, you find the same basic elements.

A final word about Masonry seems prudent before we move on. Please do not believe, as many do, that anyone involved in Masonry is an evil anti-Christian or a plotter against humanity. It’s simply not true. Masonry itself actually contains large gems of truth that fit beautifully within the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many good, honorable people who were not conspirators in any evil plot – such as America’s Founding Fathers – have belonged to it. Indeed, in the early days, many Masons fought against Illuminati infiltration of their lodges. In Berlin, for instance, one lodge called the Order a “masonic sect that undermines the Christian religion and turns Freemasonry into a political system” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 26).

The Craft originally emanated from a good source but has been hijacked and corrupted through the centuries by uninspired and designing men. Those who hijacked it engrafted upon it Satanic rites, rituals, and rhetoric. Today, it is used by the Illuminati as a recruiting mechanism. Adam Weishaupt regarded Masonic lodges as the Illuminati’s “nursery garden” (Nesta Webster, Secret Societies and Subversive Movements, 209-210). Other high-level communists and radicals have likewise admitted that they use Masonic lodges as recruiting stations for higher conspiracies that lower-level initiates are oblivious to. Again, be careful not to lump all Masons together incorrectly or, for that matter, to assume that because Masons had a prominent hand in founding the United States that America is the chief power in the New World Order. It’s simply not true.

I have thus far referred to the founding date of the Illuminati as May 1, 1776. This is factual. However, the founding of the ideology of Illuminism is much more ancient. As I’ve endeavored to point out, and as both ancient prophets and modern researchers have identified, the characteristic doctrines of the Illuminati go back to the very beginning.

Strictly speaking, this massive conspiracy against mankind has its origins in the pre-earth days when Lucifer rebelled against God, initiated what the Apostle John called a “war in heaven” (Revelation 12:3-9), sought to “exalt [his] throne above the stars of God” (Isaiah 14:12-17), and was eventually cast down to earth with his unembodied followers. Starting with Cain, the first murderer, Satan has exerted his cunning influence to induct people into his conspiracy – which, in the final equation, is a war against Christ and His followers (Revelation 12:17). The chaos we’ve seen in the word down through the millennia is largely attributable to this Anti-Christ conspiracy. However, the Adversary has suffered setbacks from time to time and has been forced to regroup, restrategize, and refocus. The Illuminati is the product of the most recent refocusing.

Illuminists seek worldly wealth and power. However, they also seek spiritual power. They seek to be the high priests of their god – Lucifer. They seek his protection both here and in the next life. It seems they believe that they will be shielded from divine punishment for their hedonistic debauchery, lying, theft, and murders if they throw in their lot with Satan. In quotes I won’t share here, high-level Masons and occultists like Albert Pike, Aleister Crowley, and Helena Blavatsky, make it crystal clear that they see Lucifer as a benevolent being who brought light to mankind and freed us from the intolerant cruelty of Jehovah. They falsely believe they are working for god just as Christians know we are serving the real Lord Jesus Christ. Just as Christians expect to be heirs of glory alongside Jesus Christ (Romans 8:16-17), Illuminists expect to be crowned by the hand of Lucifer in his kingdom. And no doubt they will receive their place in his kingdom!

Illuminati25

In a brilliant, but hard-to-find pamphlet, J.R. Ledkins wrote:

The objective of the Illuminati is to establish a one world government with Lucifer as its prince. Members of the Illuminati have literally sworn an oath to dethrone the Christ and to replace Christianity with pure Satanism. . . .

The leaders of the Illuminati . . . are a small but very powerful group of international bankers. They have induced others into their order to include educationalists, economists, etc. These men have accepted the Luciferian doctrine of Adam Weishaupt” (J.R. Ledkins, “Wherefore the Lord Commandeth You”, 41).

Another researcher has described the Elite’s pact with Lucifer in this way:

Secret knowledge equals power, the intended end result being (global) control – which is what the New Underworld Order perpetrators are seeking. This is of course the most demonic form of idolatry. Remember what Satan said to the Lord when he was tempting Him?: ‘Again, the Devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me’. ALL ‘kingdoms’ are in Satan’s hands.

What these geomasonic New Underworld Order fanatics, members of the congregation of the Synagogue of Satan (the Illuminati), have done, is the precise opposite of what the Lord did: they have fallen down before Satan to worship him. But Satan, being ‘the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning’ and ‘the author of confusion’, is of course playing deadly games with them, which is what his demons invariably do when invoked. All conjuration runs the extreme risk that those doing the invocations will certainly be deceived. Satan is not a reliable partner, and cannot easily be shaken off once a person has entered into an agreement with him or his minions” (Christopher Story, The New Underworld Order, 185).

The Elite are in for a rude awakening in the day that their god is dragged down to hell in chains (Isaiah 14:12-19). But for the present, they believe they’re on the winning side. They believe, according to the Jewish Kabbalist tradition, that Jesus is in hell burning. They believe their god – the supreme authority over worldly kingdoms – is the true god.

As part of their effort to paganize the world, the conspirators promote atheism. The communists in particular promote militant atheism. It might seem counter-intuitive for Satanists to promote atheism, but it makes sense if you think about it. At the top, these “atheists” are true believers in spirits, beings from higher realms, and supernatural power. Many of them are followers of Lord Maitreya or various other Ascended Masters of Wisdom and have attested to personal visitations from these demonic entities.

The Elite are occultists, pagans, Satanists, Kabbalists, and Witches. They’re Satanists like Karl Marx, attend pagan rituals like Vladimir Lenin, consult the Kabbalah like Adam Weishaupt, and participate in Mithraism like the popes. They perform Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA). They are big on putting occult symbolism on money, in music, in movies, in architecture, and so forth. They know, however, that establishing atheism to breakdown faith in Christ is a necessary step to ushering in a world occult order. Only by breaking down faith in the Savior and in sound institutions can faith in something else be engendered.

The Illuminati understand that they must break down society before they can remold it in their own image. Vibrant Christian societies don’t suddenly collapse – they must be eroded gradually from within. This erosion strategy was promoted by Lenin, among others, and finds its subtlest form among the Marxist Fabian Socialists. Their efforts are currently directed at breaking down and demoralizing society according to the communist plan spearheaded jointly by communist provocateurs from the bottom and elitists like the Rockefellers from the top. From the ashes of Western Christian civilization, these collaborators expect the phoenix of occult Luciferianism to rise.

Illuminati46

Bohemian Grove

I repeat: A preliminary step to establishing global occultism is to quench faith in Jesus Christ, break down societies, crush nationalism, erode cultures, end national sovereignty, and establish a system of global governance. A one-world government is the prerequisite to a one-world religion. The political battles must be won before the spiritual war can be decided. Individual free will and agency must be extinguished before collectivized drones will follow orders. True believers must have their “superstitions” wiped away before they can be initiated into the grand secrets of illumination. This is why ideological communists so fiercely promote international Freedom-destroying, soul-sapping, retrograding bodies like the United Nations, the International Court of Justice, IMF, BRICS, SEATO, NATO, and the Bank of International Settlements, to name just a few. With our Freedom snatched from us, the Illuminati believe our spirits will break and we’ll surrender to their agenda.

Both Karl Marx and Adam Weishaupt disdained religion, except, of course, their own private occultist leanings. In the case of Karl Marx, we have good evidence that he was a full-fledged Satanist. Read Marx & Satan by the Reverend Richard Wurmbrand for the most concise treatment of the topic. Lenin and other Bolshevik leaders also attended pagan rituals while exiled in Italy. As a consequence of the Illuminati-communist formal stance on religion, the Soviet Union demolished churches (as the Red Chinese regime does today), murdered priests (as they do in China), and formally mocked Christian doctrines with so-called Museums of Atheism. Tellingly, some of these Museums of Atheism housed statues of Baphomet! So much for “atheism.”

The Fabian Socialist symbol

As noted, the Illuminati-communists often used Christianity as a cover and frequently use the guise of Christianity to seduce unsuspecting people throughout the Western world. It was the communists who invented radical Liberation Theology – a common dogma promoted by Marxist Jesuits throughout the Catholic world and particularly in Latin America. The idea is that Jesus was a revolutionary for “social justice” – an early communist, if you will. I draw a few interesting lines from Terry Melanson’s book:

The view of Jesus as a social revolutionary was to have tremendous appeal during the French Revolution, as well as impact upon the subsequent creation of communist ideology . . . Before the advent of Marx’s atheistic materialism, most French conspirators during the revolution claimed Christ “as a sans-culotte at heart if not a prophet of the revolution”; the disciples of Babeuf adopted an alternative to Christianity while at the same time proclaiming Christ as a “co-athlete.” Goodwyn Barmby, the first to use the term communism in England, published journals during the 1840s calling for a Communist Church combining “secular utopianism and Christian ritual.” The powerful Carbonari secret society engaged in elaborate initiation rituals, alluding to Christ “not in Christian terms, but in the Masonic language of ‘Grand Master of the Universe.’” Carbonari initiates were told “that Christ himself was the original Carbonaro and that His Twelve Apostles were the first Carbonari after Him. The aim was obviously not to make good Christians, but to turn good Christians into good Carbonari” . . . .

Just as the outward trappings of Christianity were only a ruse by the Carbonari, so for the Illuminati before them. . . .

To Illuminati initiates it was “revealed” that the true Christians had hid “themselves and their doctrine under the cover of Freemasonry,” which Weishaupt calls “hidden Christianity.” “[I]n the way in which I explain Christianity,” says Weishaupt, “no one need be ashamed to be a Christian, for I leave the name and substitute for it Reason”” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 187-188).

I judge this counterfeit religious nature of Illuminism-communism to be its deadliest and most dangerous aspect. Inasmuch as it imitates Christianity, but without real authority or truth, it is Anti-Christ. It is entirely Satanic. It is the Synagogue of Satan referred to by John (Revelation 2:9; 3:9). It is Mystery Babylon. It is the beast system. It is the culmination of evil in our world, the carrier of death, the harbinger of destruction, the man behind the curtain, the conspiracy of conspiracies.

According to Vitus Renner, an early deserter from the Order, one of the Illuminati’s mottoes was: “Every King and every priest is a traitor and a thief” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 31). Their schemes were directed at undermining Faith, Families, and Freedom. They assaulted the Catholic Church, calling the Jesuits a “plague” and forbidding them entrance to their Order (Nesta Webster, World Revolution: The Plot Against Civilisation, 26). They also attacked the concept of monarchy. In this case, I sympathize. I detest anyone who promotes monarchy – especially of the religious variety. The Illuminati’s anti-monarchical plan, followed through to its conclusion, is embodied by the bloody French Revolution.

Illuminati56

There’s insufficient space here to document the fact that Illuminists played a key role in instigating the French Revolution and were the force behind the Jacobins. However, this is the reality. The French Revolution, with its pretensions of “Liberty and Fraternity,” was nothing but barbaric butchery. Heads literally rolled through the streets. The Catholic Church’s property was confiscated. Priests were forced to swear allegiance to the state. Debauchery was instituted. Subversive Jews were allowed free reign in society. This is always the fruit of “democracy” – and “democracy” is always promoted by the communist conspirators whether in France, Russia, China, Cuba, or the United States.

In many ways, the Illuminati ran rampant in France. Fortunately, their revolution faltered and they were forced underground once again. It is accurate to say that the French Revolution was a trial run. It was the forerunner of the Illuminati’s most successful revolution – the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. It was an early salvo in the cabal’s quest for world domination. The next came in 1848 with the publication of The Communist Manifesto and a rash of instigated revolutions throughout Europe.

In 1848, an Illuminati front group called the League of the Just hired Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels to write a manifesto of belief. Some researchers suspect that the Jewish radical Moses Hess – the man responsible for converting both Marx and Engels from Christianity to communism and an early founder of the Zionist movement – was the true author of the manifesto. Be that as it may, in February 1848, the League of the Just renamed itself the Communist League, published The Communist Manifesto, and declared war on the whole world with these words:

[T]he Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things. . . .

The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.”

When the artificial revolutions of 1848 fizzled out, the Communist League (i.e. Illuminati) realized the world wasn’t ready for full Illuminism. They went underground again. Eventually, they morphed into the Social Democratic Workers’ Party. One of its factions, the Bolsheviks, was led by the psychopathic Russian occultist Vladimir Lenin and was supported with funds from bank robberies, piracy, and other such “expropriations” by Joseph Stalin and others gangsters. Later, with political and financial assistance from fellow conspirators – Fabian Socialists, big bankers, Wall Street tycoons, Washington bureaucrats, etc. – the criminal clique of Bolshevik gangsters launched their coup in Russia, converting that nation into an Illuminati base of operations known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

communism732

It is in the Soviet Union, and in later communist conquests like Red China and North Korea, that we can more completely see the Illuminati plan in action. Illuminist Karl Marx had advocated, as did Adam Weishaupt, the abolition of private property. The two conspirators had proposed an all-powerful state ruled by a hierarchical dictatorship. Both referred to their system as “democratic.” Both set forth rules for restricting speech, thought, and dissent. Both wrote of the necessity of capturing the youth through indoctrination in public schools. Both spoke of winning over women by calling them victims of the “patriarchy” and promising them “emancipation,” to use Weishaupt’s word. Yes, the “Women’s Liberation” movement so vigorously promoted by Soviet Russia was invented in the mind of Illuminati founder Adam Weishaupt.

Soviet leaders, just like Illuminati henchmen, used aliases (often to conceal their Jewish ethnicity). Lenin used some 100 aliases (Lenin itself is an alias). Stalin, also an alias, used dozens of names during his years of criminal activity. Weishaupt used at least one alias and all of his co-conspirators assumed other names as well. Communists frequently changed their names to conceal their Jewish ethnicity. They also needed aliases to hide themselves while conducting illegal operations.

Both the Illuminati and their communist spawn operated from the shadows in the same way organized crime families operate. From their system of administration, which is the equivalent of a secretive extra-legal body, to their system of furtively funding operations, they operate like career criminals. Indeed, communists are masters of organized crime, theft, counterfeiting, forgery, drug pushing, arms running, prostitution, blackmail operations, assassination, etc. Today’s feared “Russian mafia” is little more than Soviet (Illuminati) intelligence under a new name. They have turned Israel into their own private “mini-state,” to quote author Robert Friedman, and have hijacked the global criminal underworld – just as the Illuminati previously hijacked Masonic lodges, reading societies, and other such endeavors throughout Europe (Robert Friedman, Red Mafiya: How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America, 276-282).

From the first whispers of the Illuminati’s existence, patriots have raised the warning voice against its criminal machinations. On Independence Day, 1798, Timothy Dwight, then president of Yale University, gave a speech wherein he excoriated the Order of Illuminati, warning America of its danger. In so doing, he laid forth many of their principles, which, you will notice, may as well have been taken straight from The Communist Manifesto:

In the societies of Illuminati doctrines were taught, which strike at the root of all human happiness and virtue; and every such doctrine was either expressly or implicitly involved in their system.

The being of God was denied and ridiculed.

Government was asserted to be a curse, and authority a mere usurpation.

Civil society was declared to be the only apostasy of man.

The possession of property was pronounced to be robbery.

Chastity and natural affection were declared to be nothing more than groundless prejudices.

Adultery, assassination, poisoning, and other crimes of the like infernal nature, were taught as lawful, and even as virtuous actions.

To crown such a system of falsehood and horror all means were declared to be lawful, provided the end was good.

In this last doctrine men are not only loosed from every bond, and from every duty; but from every inducement to perform any thing which is good, and, abstain from any thing which is evil; and are set upon each other, like a company of hellhounds to worry, rend, and destroy. Of the goodness of the end every man is to judge for himself; and most men, and all men who resemble the Illuminati, will pronounce every end to be good, which will gratify their inclinations. The great and good ends proposed by the Illuminati, as the ultimate objects of their union, are the overthrow of religion, government, and human society civil and domestic. These they pronounce to be so good, that murder, butchery, and war, however extended and dreadful, are declared by them to be completely justifiable, if necessary for these great purposes. . . .

communism445

It is a remarkable fact, that a large proportion of the sentiments, here stated, have been publicly avowed and applauded in the French legislature. The being and providence of God have been repeatedly denied and ridiculed. Christ has been mocked with the grossest insult. Death, by a solemn legislative decree has been declared to be an eternal sleep. Marriage has been degraded to a farce, and the community, by the law of divorce, invited to universal prostitution. In the school of public instruction atheism is professedly taught; and at an audience before the legislature, Nov. 30, 1793, the head scholar declared, that he and his schoolfellows detested a God; a declaration received by the members with unbounded applause, and rewarded with the fraternal kiss of the president, and with the honors of the sitting. . . .

Where religion prevails, their system cannot succeed. Where religion prevails, Illuminatism cannot make disciples, a French directory cannot govern, a nation cannot be made slaves, nor villains, nor atheists, nor beasts. To destroy us, therefore, in this dreadful sense, our enemies must first destroy our Sabbath, and seduce us from the house of God. . . .

. . . Shall we, my brethren, become partakers of these sins? Shall we introduce them into our government, our schools, our families? Shall our sons become the disciples of Voltaire, and the dragoons of Marat; or our daughters the concubines of the Illuminati?” (Timothy Dwight, “The Duty of Americans, at the Present Crisis,” address, July 4, 1798).

At the end of the day, we can conclude with Terry Melanson that “Weishaupt was definitely one of the original founts from which that ideology emerged” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 58). Communism is Illuminism. And Illuminism is Satanism. Until we accept this fact, we will never succeed in our fight against organized evil “in high places” (Ephesians 6:12).

What we’re really talking about when we discuss conspiracy is ideology. It doesn’t matter to Satan whether a secret society like the Illuminati or a large public group like the Council on Foreign Relations pushes forward his agenda so long as it gets pushed forward. What is consistent, however, is the ideology, the principles, and the plan. The conspiracy ideology we’re dealing with is Satanic communism. That is simply undeniable. It is also undeniable that the Order of Illuminati was the modern instrument for disseminating this revolutionary doctrine throughout the world.

Today, the conspirators operate through a myriad of front groups and organizations. They don’t all belong to the Communist Party USA. They’re not all located in Moscow or Beijing. In fact, many are found in Washington, D.C., New York, London, Paris, Tel Aviv, and other locations posing as CEOs, Wall Street moguls, politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists, lawyers, priests, professors, etc. And many of those who do belong to outwardly radical organizations are merely pawns and front-men who know little or nothing about the real conspiracy guarded carefully at the top. Even within some of the most elite clubs and councils, not everyone is in on the plan – though they must have a general idea of what they’re engaged in. This is according to the Illuminati plan laid down by Adam Weishaupt:

The great strength of our Order lies in its concealment; let it never appear in any place in its own name, but always covered by another name, and another occupation. None is fitter than the three lower degrees of Free Masonry; the public is accustomed to it, expects little from it, and therefore takes little notice of it. Next to this, the form of a learned or literary society is best suited to our purpose, and had Free Masonry not existed, this cover would have been employed; and it may be much more than a cover, it may be a powerful engine in our hands. By establishing reading societies, and subscription libraries, and taking these under our direction, and supplying them through our labours, we may turn the public mind which way we will” (John Robison, Proofs of a Conspiracy, 112).

If you find a group today claiming to be the Illuminati, you can rest assured it is not. Rather, the real conspirators go by other names and cleverly conceal themselves. Often, they’ll use vague terms like “the Order” or “the Group.” Researcher Christopher Story has observed:

All secret societies using ‘The Order’ belong to the Illuminati, which in turn is the primary manifestation of a shadowy ‘Order of the Quest’, dedicated philosophically to maximising ‘human happiness’ without God.

The Jesuits call themselves The Order. Opus Dei refers to itself as The Order. The Yale-based Skull and Bones is The Order. The even more reprobate Ordo Templi Orientis styles itself The Order. Scratch around for secret societies labelled ‘The Order’, and you will immediately see the significance of the word ‘Order’” (Story, The New Underworld Order, Foreword).

The New World Order is little more than the Order of Illuminati in charge. But when full control is achieved, I doubt it will come in the name of “the Order” or “the Illuminati.” Rather, they’ll use one of their various front organizations or a coalition of international groups. Providing a short list of groups that have signed onto the Illuminati agenda might be beneficial.

We can debate all day which of these organizations, or others I have not listed, sits at the top of the conspiracy pyramid. Perhaps the Illuminati itself is a front group, as some believe, for the Rothschild banking dynasty. The crucial thing to know, however, is that they all share a common ideology – Satanic communism. Others prefer the term “globalism.” Some refer vaguely to “the Deep State” or “the Swamp.” Whatever you call it, the members of the conspiracy believe in the Ten Planks of The Communist Manifesto, the various principles set forth by Weishaupt, and the idea of a totalitarian one-world order ruling mankind. In the final equation, it doesn’t matter which of these earthly organizations takes the lead – they are all subservient to Satan, their true founder and puppet master.

The very existence of so many powerful international organizations sharing a common ideology should shock people. Unfortunately, the world has not awoken to this existential threat. Far too many people have been seduced by socialistic something-for-nothing ideas or otherwise have been neutralized by Marxist or pagan indoctrination. The Illuminati-communist plan of demoralization is working.

communism843

If we are to win this fight against the Illuminati-communist conspiracy, we must first acknowledge its existence, admit how dangerous it is, quarantine it like a foul contagion, and eradicate it by any means necessary. Any. Means. Necessary. You don’t compromise with cancer. You don’t peacefully coexist with Bubonic Plague. You don’t negotiate with a criminal breaking into your house at 2 A.M. You extinguish the threat ruthlessly and without hesitation.

An edict from Karl Theodor, duke of Bavaria, correctly described the danger posed by the Illuminati. The duke failed in his attempt to suppress the Illuminati contagion, but if enough people awaken to the danger, we may still thwart the Order’s endgame. Let us always remember and apply this warning from more than two centuries ago:

As more time passes it is further realized how harmful and dangerous the Order of the Illuminati will be for the State and religion, if allowed to flourish here and beyond. It is impossible to predict the deplorable effects that would result for posterity if we stand back, if not handled very seriously while there is still time to forcefully eradicate a disease which is far more daunting than the plague itself” (Melanson, Perfectibilists, 40).

“Just Doing My Job” and Other Things Tyrants Say

Perhaps I missed the “Pandemic Clause” the last time I read the U.S. Constitution, but I don’t recall anywhere in that inspired document where is says that all our God-given rights can be curtailed in a crisis. Yes, the Constitution allows certain specific rights, such as that of habeas corpus, to be temporarily suspended during a time of “Rebellion or Invasion” when the public safety “may require it” (Article 1, Section 9, Clause 2), but, otherwise, the document grants no authority to any officer of government to strip peaceable American citizens of their rights. Yet, during the current Coronacrisis hysteria, which I have openly called a psyop, the Constitution has been almost totally suspended by the president, governors, and local public servants. This article rebuffs that erroneous notion and is addressed to anyone who feels the Constitution can be suspended at their will and pleasure, but more particularly local law enforcement, sheriffs, judges, mayors, city councilors, county commissioners, and so forth.

B36TjgrCEAEM_9d

From New York to California, and from Idaho to Vermont, our sacred rights enshrined in the Constitution have been curtailed as a result of Coronavirus hysteria. Fear has proven to be a far deadlier contagion than this Red Chinese virus. At a time when the economy was booming, confidence in the president was high and rising, and the public was finally starting to talk openly about the dangers of socialism, an illness with an extremely low mortality rate imported from communist China has succeeded in gutting the Bill of Rights and reducing us to patients in a medical police state. In this piece, I won’t discuss the growing mountain of evidence that Coronavirus was and is a false-flag. Rather, I’ll focus my attention on the fact that fear of a limited disease is no justification for violating the rights of an entire nation.

For years, I’ve used the term “mini-tyrants” to refer to those in society, whether private citizens or public servants, who take it upon themselves to destroy people’s rights. In a recent article for The Federalist, John Daniel Davidson used the term “little tyrants” to refer to those who have reacted to Coronavirus by curtailing the American People’s rights guaranteed in the Constitution. In part, Davidson wrote:

We’ve now witnessed local and state governments issue decrees about what people can and cannot buy in stores, arrest parents playing with their children in public parks, yank people off public buses at random, remove basketball rims along with private property, ticket churchgoers, and in one case try—and fail—to chase down a lone runner on an empty beach. All of this, we’re told, is for our own good. . . .

Pandemic or not, this stuff has no place in American society. Petty tyranny of the kind these mayors and local officials are scheming is wholly alien to our customs and way of life, and destructive to the social contract on which our nation is built.”

Amen to every word! It is “wholly alien” to American history, heritage, and law to curtail individual rights simply because a crisis situation arises. Few would argue that society has a right to hunt down subversive groups, like the Communist Party or the MS-13 gang, which are attempting to undermine and destroy society or do harm to Americans, but that’s not what’s happening in the present case. Rather, normal, peaceable American citizens are being targeted, by mini-tyrants in state and local governments, as criminals for simply attempting to go about their daily lives, walk outside, play in the park, assemble in groups per the First Amendment, or go to church.

tyranny26

Let’s highlight a few of the horrid rights violations and outright irrational things governments have done because of Coronavirus hysteria:

In San Clemente, California, the city decided to dump 37 tons of sand onto a skate park to deter skateboarders from minding their own business and harming absolutely no one during the lock-down.

Near Malibu, California, a man was arrested on the beach for paddle boarding alone in the ocean.

In my home state of Idaho, in the little town of Rathdrum, a woman was cited by police for holding a yard sale and threatened with jail time.

In Meridian, Idaho, where I once lived, a mother who was playing in a public park with her kid was arrested for peacefully refusing to obey a cop’s unconstitutional demands to leave. This despicable incident, the protest at the officer’s house that followed, and the rash of pathetic online comments condemning the woman and ripping on anyone who doesn’t grovel before the golden throne of law enforcement and government “authority,” is what finally prompted me to write this article.

In Kentucky, the governor forbade in-person Easter church services and instructed police officers to take down the license plate numbers of all those evil church-goers.

The city of Westport, Connecticut is currently testing “pandemic drones” that detect coughs, sneezes, and people’s temperatures. I’m sure that won’t violate the Fourth and Fifth Amendments.

In Philadelphia, a passenger was violently dragged off a bus by police officers for what crime? Not wearing a face mask. And how did the police know that some random, peaceful man wasn’t wearing a face mask? Why, the bus driver did his Soviet civic duty and called them, of course.

The state of Utah has limited public gatherings to ten people. Utah has also considered, though for the moment delayed, a bill that would allow local governments to “establish, maintain, and enforce isolation and quarantine, and exercise physical control over property and over individuals.”

The Michigan governor has deemed seeds “non-essential” and has forbidden their sale. Yes, seeds. Vegetable seeds. Fruit seeds. Seeds. I can’t think of many things more essential than seeds.

Walmart, Target, Costco, and other stores across the country have closed entire aisles of products, declaring them “non-essential” to conform with state orders closing all “non-essential” jobs and businesses.

The Chinese-owned Smithfield Foods meat plants in South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Missouri, the first of which alone supplies 5% of the nation’s pork, have been shut down.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has used Coronavirus as an excuse to close all gun stores. Not to be outdone, Los Angeles ordered gun stores closed during the “pandemic.” An activist judge agreed that guns are “non-essential” and that the city has the authority to close any business it wants to for any reason it deems necessary.

In Florida, a pastor was arrested for holding church services in violation of a rights-violating stay-at-home order. Pastors in others states have suffered similar persecution.

A toddler’s birthday party in a southern California public park was broken up by an entire goon squad of baton-wielding police officers. It reminds me of the System of a Down lyrics in the song “Deer Dance”: “[V]isible police, presence-sponsored fear. Battalions of riot police with rubber bullet kisses. Baton courtesy, service with a smile.”

The list of arrests and insane, authoritarian behavior could continue on and on, but these suffice to give you the flavor of what’s happening in America today.

This is the sort of behavior that people’s irrational fear engenders. This is the type of thing that people who support draconian stay-at-home orders allow to happen. This is what anti-Americans and mini-tyrants do and support. This is tyranny!

94317342_2943199515733213_3856028033555103744_n

People who are scared of Coronavirus have the right to stay at home and lock their doors if they please. But they do not have the right to force me and my family to stay locked up in our home. They do not have the right to prevent other people from going to work to earn a living. They do not have the right to stop other people from operating their businesses or selling their products. They do not have the right to keep other people from traveling. They do not have the right to prevent others in their community from playing in the public park. They simply do not have a totalitarian authority over the lives, actions, bodies, and property of other people. The most these timid and terrified people can do is stay at home if they truly think self-quarantine is in their best interest.

The general hysteria has shown millions of people to be hypocrites and supremely inconsistent in their views. For instance, isn’t it ironic that the same people who protest for their “right” to murder unborn babies are now supposedly so concerned about society’s health and well-being that they want us to give up our rights for their own personal safety? What happened to “my body, my choice” in these people’s darkened minds? Apparently this privilege only applies to them. These are the same sort of intellectually-stunted individuals who think that vaccines are safe and effective, yet are worried if you don’t vaccinate. At any rate, whether out of fear or ignorance, these cowed people have thrown their lot in with the mini-tyrants who never let a good crisis go to waste.

There is a lot of blame to go around for the hysterical overreactions and tyrannical impositions that have occurred during this Coronacrisis. We can blame those in government who have usurped power and have taken to dictating how we may or may not live our lives. We can blame police who say “just following orders” or “just doing my job” as they violate the Constitution and arrest innocent people who exercise their rights. We can blame the public for their timidity and for tolerating the tyrannical acts. As noted, however, I’m addressing this to public servants.

tyranny23

Police are the ultimate public servants. They are where the rubber meets the road. Their job is to “enforce” laws. But which laws? All laws? Or only constitutional laws? History has established that saying “I was just following orders” is no justification for committing immoral or oppressive acts. “Just doing my job” is what mini-tyrants say. Making the excuse “just doing my job” provides no excuse for implementing tyranny.

Any right-thinking individual must conclude that a police officer’s job is to enforce constitutional laws and protect the rights of citizens. By implication, police have no license to violate citizens’ rights regardless of what the law allows. Thus, it is fair to say that there can be no tyranny unless police acquiesce. A heavy burden and responsibility to rigidly enforce the Constitution and reject that which does not comply with it rests on their shoulders.

One of the things that sets America apart from other nations is that we have a national creed – the Constitution. The Constitution is the keystone of Americanism. It holds the Republic together. It is glue which keeps the fifty states in a workable Union. All public officers are bound to uphold the Constitution and the American People are likewise bound to sustain and obey it. It is important, then, that we understand the Constitution’s most important element – the Supremacy Clause.

In the national Constitution, there’s a thing called the Supremacy Clause. You can find it in Article VI, Clause 2. It states that the Constitution and laws made “in Pursuance thereof,” that is, constitutional laws that don’t violate any of its provisions, “shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.” In other words, the national Constitution trumps any and all state and local laws that touch upon the same objects.

Let’s briefly examine,using three examples, what this means in practice. If a governor forbids you from assembling peaceably in your state, this is a direct violation of the First Amendment which guarantees “the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” This obviously applies to city and state governments, not merely to the federal government. No city can forbid people from peaceably assembling on public property, such as in a park or the steps of the capitol. Next, if a governor forbids church services, he is violating the First Amendment which guarantees American citizens the “free exercise” of their right of worship. Lastly, if a governor or mayor assumes the authority to ban firearms or firearms sales because of a “crisis,” their declarations are null and void because the Second Amendment guarantees that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

92679235_1576638902505998_2350104360890925056_n

As you see, the Supremacy Clause is the linchpin of the entire Constitution. Either the Constitution is supreme and all citizens and officers at any level of government must obey it and all just laws passed “in Pursuance thereof,” or it’s a pointless document with no purpose or efficacy. If we admit that the Supremacy Clause is valid, which we do when we acknowledge the Constitution and claim the rights of citizens, then we also admit that any public servant – mayor, governor, judge, president, senator, sheriff – who passes or enforces a law, decree, or executive order that violates an individual’s rights is in blatant violation of the Constitution. If we are to remain a free nation, we must reclaim the understanding that was so basic to our Founding Fathers; namely, that the People had established the Constitution and, thus, it was obligatory and binding upon them and their representatives.

George Washington explained it this way:

This government, the offspring of our own choice, uninfluenced and unawed, adopted upon full investigation and mature deliberation, completely free in its principles, in the distribution of its powers, uniting security with energy, and containing within itself a provision for its own amendment, has a just claim to your confidence and your support. Respect for its authority, compliance with its laws, acquiescence in its measures, are duties enjoined by the fundamental maxims of true liberty. The basis of our political systems is the right of the people to make and to alter their constitutions of government. But the Constitution which at any time exists, till changed by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people, is sacredly obligatory upon all. The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established government.”

Notice what President Washington said and did not say. He said that a free people which chooses its own constitution is bound by it. He did not say that the American People are bound to obey any and all laws and dictates that come from government. As noted, the Constitution says that we are bound to uphold the Constitution and laws “made in Pursuance thereof.” A law cannot be in pursuance of the Constitution if it violates portions of the Constitution, such as the First Amendment, Second Amendment, and so on. Any law, then, that violates any provision of the Constitution also violates the Supremacy Clause and is null and void.

To reinforce this crucial concept, which is at the heart of the subject at hand, I give just a few more quotations. In the famous, or infamous, court case Marbury v. Madison, the Supreme Court acknowledged: “All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.”

Constitution89

At the North Carolina Ratifying Convention of 1788, Governor Samuel Johnston referred to the Supremacy Clause and reasoned:

Without this clause, the whole constitution would be a piece of blank paper . . . Every law consistent with the constitution, will have been made in pursuance of the powers granted by it. Every usurpation or law repugnant to it, cannot have been made in pursuance of its powers. The latter will be nugatory and void.”

Finally, in Federalist No. 78, Alexander Hamilton likewise explained:

There is no position which depends on clearer principles, than that every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid” (Jonathan Elliot, ed., The Debates, Resolutions, and Other Proceedings, in Convention, on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, Vol. 3, 166).

Can anyone read the plain language of the Constitution, and the unmistakable explanations of these good men, and conclude that the Constitution is not indeed the supreme law of the land? If it is the supreme law of the land, then state and local governments cannot violate it and still be in the right – regardless of their oh-so-benevolent reasons and intentions. When any governor, police officer, judge, mayor, county bureaucrat, ad infinitum, violates any provision of the Constitution (e.g. your right to assembly, your right to keep and bear arms, your free exercise of worship, your right to operate a business), then they have overstepped their authority and are in open rebellion to the Constitution and to the People who established it. Their dictates and actions, in these situations, are inherently and expressly null and void. One may even say they are even tyrannical.

As noted, the heart of the matter is the U.S. Constitution. There is no “Pandemic Clause” which nullifies the Constitution in the event of a crisis. There is no clause, section, or article of that document which allows it to be suspended at the say so of Congress, the president, the Supreme Court, your state governor, or your local mayor. It simply cannot be suspended except, as President Washington put it, “by an explicit and authentic act of the whole people.” Otherwise, it is in force and any local, state, or federal decrees, executive orders, or “laws” to the contrary are null and void.

Another issue connected with the Constitution and important to our understanding of the contrived Coronacrisis hysteria is that of rights vs privileges. A privilege can be taken away by the one who grants it. A right, however, cannot be taken away. It can be forfeited by violating another person’s rights, but it cannot be justifiably taken away from a peaceable citizen of this land.

Rights existed before the Constitution. They are inherent in man. He receives them as an endowment from his Creator, as the Declaration of Independence states so plainly. No government, then, can justly take them away unless the individual forfeits them by violating the rights of others. Thomas Jefferson explained:

[R]ightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will, within the limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’; because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual” (Thomas Jefferson to Isaac Tiffany, April 4, 1819).

Liberty or death1

If Jefferson was correct, and he almost always was, then the measures being taken by both our federal and state governments to curb Coronavirus are, by definition, tyrannical. How can they be otherwise? They most certainly violate our individual Liberty as guaranteed in the Constitution; the right of assembly foremost among them. Ah, but it’s a “crisis,” you say; it’s for the “public safety.” I dispute that putting an entire nation under house arrest can control a virus. But let’s assume it’s true that forced quarantine is good medical practice, where does the Constitution tell government it can nullify my Freedom just so it can fight a disease?

I fully grant that in legitimately extreme situations, such as in the face of a subversive enemy attempting to overthrow society from within, the Constitution is perhaps not sufficient. However, this is not such a situation. We’re supposedly faced with a virus akin to the common cold that has a 99% recovery rate and which can be cured with a simple $20 medication. Cite me the article, section, and clause that tells me the Constitution can be suspended in this situation and I’ll be pacified and remain silent.

If you cannot find a provision of the Constitution which empowers government officers to trample the Constitution in a “crisis” and violate individual rights for the so-called “good of society,” then you must, if you’re honest, conclude with me that what’s being done in the name of fighting this “pandemic” is tyrannical. And if you cannot draw this conclusion, I cannot in good conscience stand with you, but must consider you an enemy who seeks to destroy my rights. If you find yourself on the other side of this equation, you’re a mini-tyrant and a traitor.

I recant what I said a moment ago; we actually are in a crisis. However, the crisis is not because of some sickness (which may not even be caused by so-called COVID-19), but because of the despotic overreaches that have occurred as a result of the unfounded hysteria the media has whipped up. That is the real crisis. It is a constitutional crisis. We’re faced with an epidemic of mini-tyrants who, like cockroaches, have come out of the woodwork to capitalize on the public’s fear and massively expand the size and power of government.

Police, mayors, governors, and others have assisted in this wholesale destruction of the Constitution by acquiescing and going along with the tyranny. Yet, they say they’re “just doing their job.” If their job is to destroy the Constitution and eviscerate our rights, then they are correct. If their job, however, is to defend our God-given rights, then what they’ve done is break their oaths, trample the Constitution, and betray the trust of the American People.

Since few in government, the courts, and law enforcement apparently have any desire to stand up for American Freedom, it is our duty as freemen to declare our rights, to hold up the Constitution, and to punish traitors. George Washington once wrote: “[It] is a maxim with me, that in times of imminent danger to a Country, every true Patriot should occupy the Post in which he can render them the most effectually” (George Washington to James McHenry, February 25, 1799). Now is such a time.

The smallest, but perhaps most effective, thing you can do right now in this time of “imminent danger” to our Republic is to fearlessly vocalize your resistance to the tyrannical, communistic lock-down measures in place from coast to coast. You can take to social media to inform others that what is happening is nothing short of tyranny, that it is not for the public good, that it’s destroying the economy, that it is contrary to the Constitution, and that it severely weakens our Liberty. You can be the one who shares critical information with your family and friends both in person and online, because you can rest assured that the mainstream press won’t share it. Indeed, social media and the controlled media are attempting to silence and censor truthful content about the reality of this “pandemic,” cover up rights violations, and keep you in slavish fear. You can the voice of reason in a time of paranoia and fear.

Paul Revere1

I urge you, fellow freeman, to lend your voice to the resistance effort. Stand up for your rights and encourage others to stand up for theirs. Help rally your countrymen against the godless Marxist tyranny that oppresses us. Name names. Note those who vote against the Constitution and against personal Liberty. Organize electoral resistance to these charlatans in the next election. Call out and protest your local police for “just doing their job” to put shackles on you and your family. Educate and, if need be, rebuff your acquaintances, friends, and family members who support measures that, by their nature, are unconstitutional, tyrannical, and aimed at the demolition of our Republic.

Never be ashamed to stand up for your Freedom. Stand boldly and know that others stand with you. Be warned that if you cave to the pressure and go along with tyranny, even if it’s supposedly for the “public good,” you disgrace your nation and everything which the title “American” stands for. And also know that if you sincerely resolve “give me liberty, or give me death,” you stand with the great ones whose names we speak with reverence – Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Jackson, Henry, Hancock, Parker, and so forth. America needs its Sons of Liberty and Daughters of the Revolution more now than ever. It’s your time to show where you stand.

Lexington and Concord

Lay down your arms, you damned rebels, and disperse.”

On April 18, 1775, 700 British troops slunk out of Boston under the cover of night. Their mission was to march to the little town of Concord to capture and destroy a cache of firearms and gun powder that the America “rebels” were stockpiling there. The outspoken patriot leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock had taken refuge in nearby Lexington and would have also been arrested as the British marched to Concord. In short, the Redcoats planned to arrive in Lexington and Concord at dawn and cut the legs out from under the burgeoning American rebellion.

Stand Your Ground

Fortunately for the cause of Liberty, the patriots had developed an intricate surveillance and information network. Committees of Correspondence carried critical messages between the colonies. Informants spied on British troop movements. And messengers on horseback raced between towns with instructions from leaders like Samuel Adams. These organizations were entirely extralegal, but served critical functions and were indispensable to the American Revolution.

As soon as the British had slipped out of their base, they were discovered by the network of American patriots. A predetermined plan was set into motion, beginning with the famous “one if by land, two if by sea” signal. This signal – two lanterns hung in the steeple of the Old North Church – was flashed from Boston to nearby Charlestown to alert the other members of the network that the Redcoats were rowing across the Charles River.

Paul Revere, who was instrumental in the local courier network and in the secret group of spies called the Mechanics, visited the home of Dr. Joseph Warren of the Boston Committee of Correspondence. Dr. Warren had already dispatched a messenger named William Dawes to Concord with the alarming news. Revere was also sent to Concord via an alternate route.

Revere carefully rode through the countryside warning people friendly to the “rebels” that the troops were on the move. He arrived in Lexington just before Dawes and immediately went to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock of the danger. Adams and Hancock were staying in the Lexington home of Reverend Jonas Clark (also spelled Clarke) where they were actively guarded by a number of men from his parish.

Revere and Dawes succeeded in convincing the patriot leaders to flee for their safety and then continued on to Concord. On the way, they were joined by yet another rider, Samuel Prescott. The trio was soon intercepted by British soldiers. Dawes and Prescott managed to escaped and rode on to Concord. Revere, however, was detained, questioned, and had his horse commandeered before walking back to Lexington where he arrived before the first shots of the American Revolution were fired.

After the messengers had alerted the people of Lexington, about seventy minutemen eventually gathered on the Lexington town green. They were led by Captain John Parker. Captain Parker ordered his men not to fire when the British arrived. In fact, he decided to place his militia on the neutral town common instead of block the road to Lexington, which would have been a provocative act. He is reported to have said: “[D]on’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”

America253

Nearby, other minutemen gathered at the Fitch Tavern for a quick breakfast. Their leader, Captain Willson, remarked: “It is a cold breakfast, boys, but we will give the British a hot dinner. We’ll have every dog of them before night.” His words would prove to be truer than perhaps he ever imagined.

When the Lobsterbacks finally arrived in Lexington, after roughing up and even arresting various people along their way, they were incensed to the see Captain Parker’s minutemen lined up, rifles in hand, on the town green. The British gathered in battle formation across from the patriots and fixed bayonets. Even before the British appeared, some of the militiamen were spooked and discussed leaving. Captain Parker overheard the murmuring and responded: “The first man who offers to run shall be shot down.”

The British invaders were led by Major John Pitcairn. Pictairn rode his horse to within earshot of Captain Parker and ordered: “Lay down your arms, you damned rebels, and disperse.” Apparently Captain Parker and his men decided to fall back, but declined to give up their weapons. Pictairn again demanded: “Damn you, why don’t you lay down your arms?”

At this crucial point, another British officer behind Pictairn prompted the troops to fire at the retreating American minutemen. Most books today claim that no one knows who fired the first shot, but the evidence suggests it came from the British side – not from the American militiamen who were at the time falling back. At any rate, Pictairn then formally ordered his men, with profanity and anger, to fire. The American patriots returned fire and the War for Independence had begun.

Ebenezer Munroe, one of the first patriots hit, yelled out to John Munroe as he turned to fire: “I’ll give them the guts of my gun.” He and the other stalwart militiamen of Lexington exemplified the “Don’t Tread On Me” American spirit. This spirit had long been cultivated by Reverend Jonas Clark and other patriots.

On December 13, 1773, in response to the Tea Act, the men of Lexington had actually adopted a resolution written by Rev. Clark – an early version of the Declaration of Independence, one might say – in which they had declared: “We trust in God that should the State of Our Affairs require it, we shall be ready to Sacrifice our Estates, and every thing dear in Life, Yea & Life itself, in support of a Common Cause.” Facing off against British tyrants on the town common was only the natural next step in their commitment to Liberty.

America9

The battle on Lexington Green lasted only a couple minutes. But when the smoke cleared, eight Americans lay dead and nine others were wounded. Some of those who died had been shot in the back and others were bayoneted by the British jackals. The others melted away into the town or nearby countryside. The British wasted little time in Lexington and marched on to their real goal: The Americans’ guns and ammunition stored at Concord.

While the drama was unfolding in Lexington, numerous messengers were sent into the countryside to inform as many people as possible that the King’s troops were on their way. Samuel Prescott had reached Concord and the local minutemen had gathered together. They were later informed by Reuben Brown that shots had been fired in Lexington. They didn’t know the outcome of the fighting there, but braced for a battle in Concord.

As the British approached Concord, they saw a Liberty pole that had been erected. Tellingly, they cut it down. They began seeing militiamen in the hills along the route. By the time they arrived in the town to confiscate and destroy the patriots’ firearms and ammunition, the minutemen had left the town and spread out into the surrounding areas.

The British immediately embarked on their search-and-destroy mission, aided by lists of patriots’ names provided to them by Tory traitors. Some weapons were successfully hidden and certain townswomen were instrumental in diverting the British away from others. Other public provisions were likewise protected by villagers pretending it was their private property. Despite these efforts, the British soldiers looted a number of the homes, burned some of the buildings, and found some of the armaments, which they destroyed.

With their tyrannical work complete, the British prepared to return to Boston. Their return trip would not go off without a hitch, however. Before the Redcoats could exit Concord, hundreds of militiamen from surrounding areas had gathered under the command of Colonel James Barrett. A war council was held. When smoke and fire were seen in Concord, the patriots decided to move into the town. Colonel Barrett ordered Major John Buttrick to advance on the British, though not to fire unless fired upon. Major Buttrick was heard to say they would “march into the middle of the town for its defence, or die in the attempt.”

America262

Before they could enter the town, the patriots had to cross Concord Bridge which was guarded by British troops. The British fired upon the militiamen as they approached, killing one man. The militia returned fire, killing several British and wounding others. The British withdrew and were joined by others from the town. They squared off with the militiamen for some time. When they finally began their journey back to Boston, they were ambushed on the way by as many as one to four-thousand men from nearby communities who had responded to the warnings of British invasion into their area.

As the Redcoats marched to Boston, they were sitting ducks for militiamen concealed in the trees and hills along the roadside. For hours, the British endured guerrilla fire from American muskets. Along their march, a particularly interesting incident occurred. Samuel Whittemore was seventy-eight-years-old at the time. His house, in the small village of Menotomy, sat on the road that lead to Boston. As the British fell back after their attacks upon Lexington and Concord, Whittemore was warned that they were coming. Instead of running, he prepared to defend his home.

Whittemore set up his musket, pistols, and sword and prepared for the Redcoats. In due time, the British marched through the village, smashing everything as they went. When his door was kicked in by British regulars, Whittemore didn’t hesitate to pull the trigger of his pistols, felling the intruders. He then shot another British soldier who rushed at him. Finally, he went for his sword as still other British soldiers burst into his home. They shot him in the head and bayoneted him thirteen times before ransacking his house and leaving him for dead. But he didn’t die. Incredibly, this brave patriot not only survived, but lived to the age of 98 – living to see America freed from British domination. When asked by his wife if he regretted engaging the British instead of hiding, he promptly replied: “No! I would run the same chance again.”

The Redcoats were harassed on all sides by the American patriots as they rushed back to Boston. They only found relief when they reached the city and General Gage’s reinforcements. The bloody march came to be known as “Parker’s Revenge.” The Battles of Lexington and Concord were costly for the occupiers. At least 73 British were killed with dozens injured and even more who went missing. On the other hand, the “shot heard ‘round the world” ignited the revolutionary spirit throughout the colonies and made a full-scale war for Independence inevitable.

The “shot heard ‘round the world” has been remembered and commemorated by many as Patriot’s Day. In one particular Patriot’s Day address, Major T. Harrison Cummings noted:

Perhaps the most important date in our national calendar, therefore, is the nineteenth of April, 1775. Since, on that day, the blood that was shed in Cambridge and Lexington, marked the first brave resistance of our ancestors to English tyranny, injustice, and oppression, and that resistance brought about the birth of a new nation of freemen.”

Surely April 19, 1775 deserves its place among other special dates such as July 4, 1776 and September 17, 1787. But how many of us remember, let alone go out of our way to commemorate, this exceptional day? How many of us even know the names of national heroes like Captain John Parker and Colonel James Barrett? We have so much to be grateful for as Americans – more than any other people on the planet – yet our forgetfulness of our past, our heroes, and our principles, is nothing short of deafening.

There’s another reason beyond mere gratitude that we should remember the noble American blood spilled at Lexington and Concord. Our national situation is analogous to 1775. The major difference, however, is that the tyranny we face today is far worse than the tyranny our forefathers faced in on the eve of the Revolution. Our ancestors would have never tolerated the abuses that are daily heaped upon us. Yet, most of us pathetically tolerate and endure violations of our sacred rights.

Despite the cowardice that has a hold on so many people, there are millions of us who are not so timid; millions of American patriots who understand our rights, comprehend the Constitution, and prefer to die on our feet as freemen than live on our knees as slaves. The powers-that-be who have hijacked our government believe we will roll over and continue to submit to their dictates because there are many who loudly profess their subservience to the state. But “therein lies the road to war, because those voices don’t speak for the rest of us. You and I know and do not believe that life is so dear and peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery . . . Where, then, is the road to peace? Well it’s a simple answer after all. You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, “There is a price we will not pay.” “There is a point beyond which they must not advance.”” (Ronald Reagan, “A Time for Choosing,” October 27, 1964).

We don’t know where the next “shot heard ‘round the world” will be or what will spark it. It may be in Virginia where the newly-elected Democrat regime is busy pushing through egregious gun control laws. It may be in New York where they want to confiscate firearms just like the British hordes who descended upon Lexington and Concord. It may be in Utah where the state government is attempting to usurp a totalitarian authority over people and property. It may be in the mountains of Montana if the national government ever attempts to once and for all abolish the Second Amendment. It might be on a ranch or farm that the government is attempting to steal like they did in the 2014 “Battle of Bunkerville.” We don’t know where or when the government’s despotism will be opposed with deadly force and the powder keg of resistance will be ignited – but it will be eventually.

The best case scenario is that the American People wake up and we only have a limited revolt against the tyrants entrenched in government. The worst case scenario – the scenario that is, unfortunately, most likely – is that the Elite will get their way and plunge the Republic into an everyone-against-everyone melee of mob warfare. In either case, American patriots have a tremendous need to remember the men who stood on Lexington Green and at Concord Bridge.

America115

Americans need to imbibe the spirit of our forefathers. They were real men. They had courage. They knew their rights. They were armed both intellectually, spiritually, and physically against tyrants. They resisted infringements of their rights as all freemen do. They were willing to give their lives to defend their Faith, Families, and Freedom. If we are not prepared to sacrifice everything that they sacrificed in the common cause of Liberty, we’re not worthy to enjoy the level of Freedom they won with their gallantry.

May the names Paul Revere, Jonas Clark, John Parker, James Barrett, and Samuel Whittemore rest on your mind. May the hallowed scenes of Lexington Green and Concord Bridge play continually before your eyes. And may the spirit of Freedom that animated the minutemen who fired the “shot heard ‘round the world” flow through you and inspire you to act against abusive government, when the time comes, as bravely as they did. Long Live Liberty!

Fanatic

Many times during political discussions and debates I have been called a “fanatic.” So it’s time for a confession: Yes, I am a fanatic! I’m a fanatic for Freedom. I’m a fanatic for truth. I’m a fanatic for the Constitution. I’m a fanatic for America.

According to the Oxford Learner’s Dictionary, a “fanatic” is “a person who is extremely enthusiastic about something” or “a person who holds extreme or dangerous opinions.” The word’s etymology is intriguing. Our modern term stems from the Latin words fanum and fanaticus. Fanum means temple or shrine. And fanaticus has several meanings, including “of or pertaining to a temple,” “divinely inspired,” or “possessed.” Both words denote religious behavior – sometimes in a good sense and sometimes in a bad sense. Perhaps it is appropriate, then, to say that a fanatic is one who is fired with a religious zeal for something.

If we accept this definition, I must again confess: I’m a fanatic! I’m extremely enthusiastic about Freedom. I’m exceedingly eager to regain and maintain my individual rights. I’m dedicated to my own self-government. I’m hell-bent on safeguarding my Faith, Family, and Freedom.

I believe in the American Gospel of Liberty. I worship at the altar of Freedom. I bow before the throne of Independence. I give obeisance inside the temple of sacred, undeniable, and God-given rights.

My love for Freedom is fanatical, aggressive, and uncompromising. I believe in militant Freedom. I’m a hardened devotee of the principles of Liberty. I believe that only an unflinching and spirited defense of our natural rights can succeed in securing them in the face of the devastatingly evil, vicious, and cunning enemy that opposes us.

President Calvin Coolidge affirmed:

The issues of the world must be met and met squarely. The forces of evil do not disdain preparation, they are always prepared and always preparing . . . The welfare of America, the cause of civilization will forever require the contribution of some part of the life of all our citizens to the natural, the necessary, and the inevitable demand for the defense of the right and the truth. There is no substitute for a militant freedom. The only alternative is submission and slavery” (Calvin Coolidge, The Price of Freedom: Speeches and Addresses, 159).

Our situation is dire. Society is crumbling around us because of the machinations of a worldwide cabal of gangsters. Our families are imploding, by design. Cultural Marxism is running rampant and corroding everything. Things have reached such a critical point that our only option is Liberty or slavery. With everything hanging in the balance, isn’t militant Freedom warranted? Aren’t we justified in being radicals for the cause of our country?

Founding Fathers25

The socialist historian Charles A. Beard did a lot of damage to the Republic by pushing his flawed economic interpretation of the American history, but he did make at least one worthwhile comment. He said:

You need only reflect that one of the best ways to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence” (M. Kenneth Creamer, The Reformation of Union State Sovereignty: The Path Back to the Political System Our Founding Fathers Intended – A Sovereign Life, Liberty, And a Free Market, 265).

Repeating the Founding Fathers’ slogans gets you branded as a “dangerous” extremist these days. Saying “Liberty or death,” like Patrick Henry did, can get you on a government watch list. Repeating Benjamin Franklin’s motto “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God” can get you labeled a potential domestic terrorist. Should being considered an “extremist,” a “radical,” a “zealot,” a “Nazi,” a “fascist,” a “white supremacist,” a “racist,” a “homophobe,” or a “fanatic” deter us from doing what is right? Of course not!

Remember, part of the definition of a fanatic is one who holds “dangerous opinions.” Dangerous to whom? Dangerous to traitors. Dangerous to tyrants. Dangerous to liars. Dangerous to communist riffraff. Dangerous to Satan worshippers. Dangerous to the parasites who feast on the lifeblood of society.

At the end of the day, unless we’re prepared to become die-hard radicals, entrenched extremists, and uncompromising fanatics for our Faith, Families, and Freedom, we don’t deserve any of them. Thomas Jefferson, one of the truest fanatics in all of recorded history, stated: “[A]ll timid men . . . prefer the calm of despotism to the boisterous sea of liberty” (Thomas Jefferson to Philip Mazzei, April 24, 1796). Which are you – timid or brave, afraid or indomitable, servile or independent?

Timid men are not worthy of the blessings of Liberty. Weak people are not capable of self-government. Cowardly nations do not deserve to be free. “The time is now near at hand which must probably determine, whether Americans are to be, Freemen, or Slaves” (George Washington, General Orders, July 2, 1776). When the day of decision comes, and it will come, where will you stand?

America253

I challenge you to become a Freedom fighter. I urge you to become a dyed-in-the-wool American patriot. I appeal to your inner sense of honor and invite you to become an adamant defender of the sacred rights of mankind. I plead with you from the depth of my soul to become an extremist in the cause of justice, truth, and Independence. I call upon you to become dangerous like our Founding Fathers and the Sons of Liberty – dangerous to any who would destroy our birthright of Liberty. I implore you to become a Freedom fanatic.
