The Book of Mormon Speaks of Freedom

Freedom is a topic that we all have a pressing need to study and master. The human spirit innately craves Liberty and personal accountability, yet few times in history have people been able to attain and then maintain their rights. The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, which you can read about in my previous article, is a volume of inspired scripture that speaks first and foremost of the divine mission of Jesus Christ and calls upon all people to worship Him. An important secondary mission of The Book of Mormon, however, is to teach us the correct principles of Liberty, expose Satan’s Freedom-destroying schemes, and show what is required for a people to maintain their God-given rights under a free government.

Captain Moroni13

Because it helps us identify the Devil’s tyrannical tactics and teaches us true principles of self-government, The Book of Mormon is the ultimate handbook of Freedom. While there is not much by way of exposition about the principles of Liberty, we see them in action in the lives and experiences of the Nephite nation. For the first five-hundred years of their history, the Nephites lived under a system of kings. The final king, a God-fearing man named Mosiah, decided to abolish the monarchical system and encouraged the Nephite people to take upon themselves responsibilities, rights, and privileges of self-government.

While contemplating the future of his people, Mosiah made a proclamation wherein he explained the dangers posed by monarchy. The foremost problem he identified was factionalism. Those vying for the position of king could easily divide the nation and cause senseless civil war. What’s more, a wicked king would be unstoppable by any means other than bloodshed. With this context in mind, we read a few lines from Mosiah’s proclamation:

And now let us be wise and look forward to these things, and do that which will make for the peace of this people.

. . . let us appoint judges, to judge this people according to our laws; and we will newly arrange the affairs of this people, for we will appoint wise men to be judges, that will judge this people according to the commandments of God.

Now it is better that a man should be judged of God than of man, for the judgments of God are always just, but the judgments of man are not always just. . . .

Now I say unto you, that because all men are not just it is not expedient that ye should have a king or kings to rule over you.

For behold, how much iniquity doth one wicked king cause to be committed, yea, and what great destruction! . . . .

And behold, now I say unto you, ye cannot dethrone an iniquitous king save it be through much contention, and the shedding of much blood.

For behold, he has his friends in iniquity, and he keepeth his guards about him; and he teareath up the laws of those who have reigned in righteousness before him; and he trampleth under his feet the commandments of God;

And he enacteth laws, and sendeth them forth among his people, yea, laws after the manner of his own wickedness; and whosoever doth not obey his laws he causeth to be destroyed; and whosoever doth rebel against him he will send his armies against them to war, and if he can he will destroy them; and thus an unrighteous king doth pervert the ways of all righteousness.

And now behold I say unto you, it is not expedient that such abominations should come upon you.

Therefore, choose you by the voice of this people, judges, that ye may be judged according to the laws which have been given by our fathers, which are correct, and which were given them by the hand of the Lord.

Now it is not common that the voice of the people desireth anything contrary to that which is right; but it is common for the lesser part of the people to desire that which is not right; therefore this shall ye observe and make it your law – to do y our business by the voice of the people.

And if the time comes that the voice of the people doth choose iniquity, then is the time that the judgments of God will come upon them. . . .

And I command you to do these things in the fear of the Lord; and I command you to do these things, and that ye have no king; that if these people commit sins and inquities they shall be answered upon their own heads. . . .

. . . I desire that this land be a land of liberty, and every man may enjoy his rights and privileges alike” (Mosiah 29:10-12, 16-17, 21-27, 30, 32).

The Book of Mormon30

The Nephite kingdom being conferred on Mosiah by his father, King Benjamin

It should be noted before I proceed with my commentary that Mosiah was not merely a king, but also an inspired Christian prophet. The Holy Spirit therefore moved upon him to formulate a new government that was pleasing to the Lord and compatible with His Gospel.

Mosiah was emphatic that men could not be trusted with the power of kingship. He knew that an unstable or immoral king could cause havoc throughout the land. He was worried that a king would amend the good laws that had been handed down for generations, instituting in their place corrupt laws that would permit sin, punish righteousness, and trample individual Liberty.

Instead of monarchy, Mosiah desired that the Nephite people take upon themselves the responsibility for administering the government. He believed that the people should “do [their] business by the voice of the people.” Note that he did not advocate for pure democracy. Rather, he suggested a system of rule of law with judges selected by the people who would enforce the law. It was, thus, a representative government very similar to that set up in the United States under the Constitution. Just as Mosiah said the law had been given to the Nephites’ forefathers by God, so, too, do I witness that the U.S. Constitution was inspired by Almighty God.

In a portion of Mosiah’s declaration that I did not cited, he made it clear that judges who did not judge “according to the law” could be taken and judged by other judged and removed from their posts (Mosiah 29:28-29). He also verified that the judges were accountable “to the voice of the people” (Mosiah 29:29). The similarities to the system set forth in the U.S. Constitution are too vivid to ignore.

Just as Mosiah said not to place trust in men but instead to make men accountable to the law, the great Thomas Jefferson advised: “In questions of power then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the constitution” (Thomas Jefferson, Kentucky Resolutions, draft, 1798).

Thomas Paine was obviously in tune with the same patriotic spirit (2 Corinthians 3:17). In 1776, he explained:

[I]n America the law is king. For as in absolute governments the King is law, so in free countries the law ought to be king; and there ought to be no other. But lest any ill use should afterwards arise, let the Crown at the conclusion of the ceremony be demolished, and scattered among the people whose right it is.

A government of our own is our natural right” (Thomas Paine, Common Sense).

Just as the American Founding Fathers established a government based on the rule of law, individual Liberty, and accountability, so, too, did the Nephites set up a free government in ancient America. When Mosiah presented his plan to the Nephite people, they were thrilled with the prospect of governing themselves. The scripture recounts:

And now it came to pass, after king Mosiah had sent these things forth among the people they were convinced of the truth of his words.

Therefore they relinquished their desires for a king, and became exceedingly anxious that every man should have an equal chance throughout all the land; yea, and every man expressed a willingness to answer for his own sins.

Therefore, it came to pass that they assembled themselves together in bodies throughout the land, to cast in their voices concerning who should be their judges, to judge them according to the law which had been given; and they were exceedingly rejoiced because of the liberty which had been granted unto them” (Mosiah 29:37-39).

The Nephites became enamored with the idea of governing themselves and placing this huge responsibility on their own shoulders. They embraced the idea of rule of law and self-governance. The laws that Mosiah gave “were acknowledged by the people; therefore they were obliged to abide by the laws” (Alma 1:1). This is similar to the concept espoused by George Washington when he said:

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” (George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796).

The people supported Mosiah’s plan, accepted the laws he proposed, and thus bound themselves to obey the established system of self-rule. As noted, the people were generally ecstatic to have the chance to determine their own futures. Mosiah made it plain that maintaining such a system would require great exertion. Self-government is indeed the most demanding form of government. It requires individuals to be informed, to make decisions, to be accountable, and to live in accordance with moral principles.

In 1938, Elder Albert Bowen, a modern apostle in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, spoke of self-government. He said:

Self-government involves self-control, self-discipline, and acceptance of the most unremitting obedience to correct principles. . . .

No other form of government requires so high a degree of individual morality” (Elder Albert E. Bowen, Improvement Era, 1938, 41).

Founding Fathers1

The Founding Fathers of the United States were emphatic in their warnings that only a virtuous people is capable of Freedom. It takes no virtue or excellence to be ruled and enslaved, but it takes a high degree of greatness, personal discipline, and exertion to be free. Because our Founding Fathers’ Freedom philosophy dovetails so nicely with the principles preached by Mosiah and other Book of Mormon figures to be cited later, I present a brief smattering of their thoughts on the connection between morality and Liberty.

My ancestor, Caleb Strong, is one of those forgotten Founding Fathers. He was an intimate associate of John Adams and helped him write the constitution for Massachusetts. He filled many positions during the War for Independence. He attended the Constitutional Convention and was the man who successfully proposed that all money bills originate in the House of Representatives. He served as the first senator from Massachusetts and, later, as governor of that state for eleven years. Mr. Strong made this observation:

Almost every nation, at some period of their existence, have enjoyed the privileges of a free State; but how few have preserved them! – they have been lost by the inconstancy of the citizens, or forfeited by their vices. . . .

. . . Government is necessary, to preserve the public peace, the persons and property of individuals; but our social happiness must chiefly depend upon other causes; upon simplicity and purity of manners; upon the education that we give our children; upon a steady adherence to the customs and institutions of our ancestors; upon the general diffusion of knowledge, and the prevalence of piety and benevolent affections among the people.

Our forms of government, are, doubtless, like all other institutions, imperfect; but they will secure the blessings of freedom to the citizens, and preserve their tranquility, as long as they are virtuous; and no constitution, that has been, or can be formed, will secure those blessings to a depraved and vicious people” (Caleb Strong, speech to the Massachusetts Legislature, January 17, 1806).

John Adams similarly believed:

The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our people in a greater measure than they have it now, they may change their rulers and the forms of government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty. They will only exchange tyrants and tyrannies” (John Adams to Zabdiel Adams, June 21, 1776).

In a more famous quotation, John Adams, then the president, wrote:

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other” (John Adams to the Massachusetts Militia, October 11, 1798).

John Witherspoon, the fiery Revolutionary era minister, gave us this gem:

Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue. On the other hand, when the manners of a nation are pure, when true religion and internal principles maintain their vigor, the attempts of the most powerful enemies to oppress them are commonly baffled and disappointed” (John Witherspoon, “The Dominion of Providence over the Passions of Man,” May 17, 1776).

Benjamin Franklin also subscribed to this philosophy, writing:

[O]nly a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters” (Benjamin Franklin to Abbes Chalut and Arnoux, April 17, 1787).

George Washington by Tim Davis

In his Farewell Address, which ought to be required reading in every part of our Republic, President George Washington took up the subject of morality and religion in a free country and proclaimed:

Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.

It is substantially true that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule, indeed, extends with more or less force to every species of free government. Who that is a sincere friend to it can look with indifference upon attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?” (George Washington, Farewell Address, 1796).

Finally, George Washington stated simply but unequivocally: “Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society” (George Washington to the Protestant Clergy of Philadelphia, March 3, 1797).

The Founding Fathers believed that the American People could only maintain their hard-won Freedom if they were virtuous and lived in accordance with the laws of God. Anciently, Mosiah believed the same thing and established his system of judges and laws in such a manner that required the Nephite people to be righteous in order for them to work. The Nephites consented to this state of affairs and gladly took upon themselves the burden and blessing of self-government. This history contextualizes the most iconic struggles for Liberty related in The Book of Mormon.

The first struggle came only five years after the system of judges had gone into effect. A man name Amlici, who is described as “being a very cunning man, yea, a wise man as to the wisdom of the world” sought to be king (Alma 2:1). Amlici was an anti-Christian zealot who belonged to a sect called the order of Nehors which attempted to impose itself upon the rest of society. We read in the record that Christians and all who loved their Liberty were alarmed at Amlici’s desire to become a king. They knew that “according to their law” all such matters “must be established by the voice of the people” and that “if it were possible that Amlici should gain the voice of the people, he, being a wicked man, would deprive them of their rights and privileges of the church; for it was his intent to destroy the church of God” (Alma 2:3-4).

As time went on, Amlici successfully courted a large number of people “and they began to endeavor to establish Amlici to be a king over the people” (Alma 2:2). Whether they joined him because they were not accustomed to their newfound Freedom, or because they found self-government too demanding, or whether they were also opposed to the Church of Jesus Christ and wanted the strong arm of government to suppress it, Amlici’s followers became so numerous that they forced a vote to decide whether or not their government would be abolished.

We read what happened next:

And it came to pass that the people assembled themselves together throughout all the land, every man according to his mind, whether it were for or against Amlici, in separate bodies, having much dispute and wonderful contentions one with another.

And thus they did assemble themselves together to cast in their voices concerning the matter; and they were laid before the judges.

And it came to pass that the voice of the people came against Amlici, that he was not made king over the people.

Now this did cause much joy in the hearts of those who were against him; but Amlici did stir up those who were in his favor to anger against those who were not in his favor.

And it came to pass that they gathered themselves together, and did consecrate Amlici to be their king.

Now when Amlici was made king over them he commanded them that they should take up arms against their brethren; and this he did that he might subject them to him” (Alma 2:5-10).

Amlici’s rebellion fulfilled Mosiah’s earlier warnings to a T. Recall that Mosiah warned that “ye cannot dethrone an iniquitous king save it be through much contention, and the shedding of much blood.” The Nephites were compelled to fight a sanguinary civil war all because one very wicked man sought for power over his countrymen and sought to dictate how they should live worship.

The Book of Mormon16

Amlici’s forces, being outnumbered by those who desired Freedom, were quickly defeated. However, Amlici ran to the Nephites’ rivals, the Lamanites, for assistance. The Lamanites routinely watched and waited for opportunities to subjugate the Nephites. A civil war was the perfect opportunity to strike. They joined forces with Amlici and the remainder of his men and waged war against the Nephites.

The Book of Mormon recounts that the ensuing battle was fierce but that “the Nephites being strengthened by the hand of the Lord, having prayed mightily to him that he would deliver them out of the hands of their enemies, therefore the Lord did hear their cries, and did strengthen them, and the Lamanites and the Amlicites did fall before them” (Alma 2:28).

After the brief but devastating war, the Nephites went back to the work of self-government. Their peace did not last long, however, because there are always those who seek for power over others.

Eighteen years after the “reign of judges” began, we learn of a great warrior named Captain Moroni. Moroni appeared on the scene at a time when the fledgling Nephite republic was again beginning to fracture. A segment of society, led by those of high birth who thought themselves above their fellows, wanted to revert back to the rule of kings. This faction was referred to as “king-men.” The opposing faction took upon themselves the name “freemen” and was determined to maintain their system of self-government at all costs.

This war of ideas came at a precarious time. It came as the aforementioned Lamanites, were again mobilizing for war. The Lamanites were encouraged, as before, by Nephite dissenters. In particular, a group calling themselves Zoramites “began to mix with the Lamanites and to stir them up also to anger” so much so that they “began to make preparations for war” (Alma 35:10-11). The anger stemmed from a difference in religion, the Zoramites and Lamanites denying the Christian Gospel preached by Nephite prophets, but was ultimately aimed at subjugating the independent Nephites once and for all.

At age twenty-five, Captain Moroni was appointed as head of the Nephite army. Moroni, a brilliant tactician and a man inspired by Almighty God, won the initial battles against the Lamanite-Zoramite armies and the latter retreated to regroup and devise a new strategy. During this tense period of war preparations, and as Captain Moroni was occupied fortifying the land in anticipation of the coming onslaught, the seditious king-men seized their chance.

The king-men were led by a singularly devious man named Amalickiah. Amalickiah, as Amlici before him, hated the Gospel of Jesus Christ and wanted to destroy the Church of Christ. He also lusted for power and wanted to eviscerate the Nephites’ Freedom. The Book of Mormon speaks of him and his followers in this way:

And it came to pass that as many as would not hearken to the words of Helaman [the prophet] and his brethren were gathered together against their brethren.

And now behold, they were exceedingly wroth, insomuch that they were determined to slay them.

Now the leader of those who were wroth against their brethren was a large and a strong man; and his name was Amalickiah.

And Amalickiah was desirous to be a king; and those people who were wroth were also desirous that he should be their king; and they were the greater part of them the lower judges of the land, and they were desirous for power.

And they had been led by the flatteries of Amalickiah, that if they would support him and establish him to be their king that he would make them rulers over the people. . . .

Yea, we see that Amalickiah, because he was a man of cunning device and a man of many flattering words, that he led away the hearts of many people to do wickedly; yea, and to seek to destroy the church of God, and to destroy the foundation of liberty which God had granted unto them, or which blessing God had sent upon the face of the land for the righteous’ sake” (Alma 46:1-5, 10).

Captain Moroni12

Amalickiah and his elitist, anti-Christian hordes rose up to challenge the Nephites. They openly sought to destroy the government, impose a monarchy over the land, and sweep away the Christians. Captain Moroni, a Christian and a fierce Freedom Fighter, would have none of it. The sacred record tells us:

And now it came to pass that when Moroni, who was the chief commander of the armies of the Nephites, had heard of these dissensions, he was angry with Amalickiah.

And it came to pass that he rent his coat; and he took a piece thereof, and wrote upon it – In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children – and he fastened it upon the end of a pole.

And he fastened on his headplate, and his breastplate, and his shields, and girded on his armor about his loins; and he took the pole, which had on the end thereof his rent coat, (and he called it the title of liberty) and he bowed himself to the earth, and he prayed mightily to his God for the blessings of liberty to rest upon his brethren, so long as there should a band of Christians remain to possess the land. . . .

And he said: Surely God shall not suffer that we, who are despised because we take upon us the name of Christ, shall be trodden down and destroyed, until we bring it upon us by our own transgressions.

And when Moroni had said these words, he went forth among the people, waving the rent part of his garment in the air, that all might see the writing . . . and crying with a loud voice, saying:

Behold, whosoever will maintain this title upon the land, let them come forth in the strength of the Lord, and enter into a covenant that they will maintain their rights, and their religion, that the Lord God may bless them.

And it came to pass that when Moroni had proclaimed these words, behold, the people came running together with their armor girded about their loins, rending their garments in token, or as a covenant, that they would not forsake the Lord their God” (Alma 46:11-13, 18-21).

Moroni ordered that his Title of Liberty be published throughout all the land. With the stirring slogan “In memory of our God, our religion, and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children,” Captain Moroni rallied the Nephites against Amalickiah. He inspired them to stand up and be counted. He roused them to rise in defense of their Faith, Families, and Freedom.

Captain Moroni4

When Captain Moroni had rallied the people to his standard, he marched against Amalickiah to put an end to his machinations. When they saw Moroni coming, many of Amalickiah’s people became “doubtful concerning the justice of the cause in which they had undertaken” (Alma 46:29). Amalickiah, fearing capture, took a small group of followers, including his brother Ammoron, and fled to the Lamanites. Moroni sent his men to apprehend Amalickiah because “he knew that he would stir up the Lamanites to anger against them and cause them to come to battle against them; and this he knew that Amalickiah would do that he might obtain his purposes” (Alma 46:30).

Unfortunately, Amalickiah escaped. Most of his followers, however, were captured. We read:

And it came to pass that whomsoever of the Amalickiahites that would not enter into a covenant to support the cause of freedom, that they might maintain a free government, he caused to be put to death; and there were but few who denied the covenant of freedom.

And it came to pass also, that he caused the title of liberty to be hoisted upon every tower which was in all the land, which was possessed by the Nephites; and thus Moroni planted the standard of liberty among the Nephites” (Alma 46:35-36).

The immediate threat of civil war was eliminated. However, as Moroni predicted, and in a fascinating story of trickery and treachery that I will not recount here, Amalickiah gained control over the Lamanite army, had his men murder the Lamanite king, and installed himself as monarch. His first command as king, unsurprisingly, was to launch a war of subjugation against the Nephites.

The Book of Mormon gives us this interesting passage about the interim period before the war began in earnest and about the type of man and leader Captain Moroni was:

Now it came to pass that while Amalickiah had thus been obtaining power by fraud and deceit, Moroni, on the other hand, had been preparing the minds of the people to be faithful unto the Lord their God. . . .

And thus he was preparing to support their liberty, their lands, their wives, and their children, and their peace, and that they might live unto the Lord their God, and that they might maintain that which was called by their enemies the cause of Christians.

And Moroni was a strong and a mighty man; he was a man of perfect understanding; yea, a man that did not delight in bloodshed; a man whose soul did joy in the liberty and the freedom of his country, and his brethren from bondage and slavery;

Yea, a man whose heart did swell with thanksgiving to his God, for the many privileges and blessings which he bestowed upon his people; a man who did labor exceedingly for the welfare and safety of his people.

Yea, and he was a man who was firm in the faith of Christ, and he had sworn with an oath to defend his people, his rights, and his country, and his religion, even to the loss of his blood.

Now the Nephites were taught to defend themselves against their enemies, even tot he shedding of blood if it were necessary; yea, and they were also taught never to give an offense, yea, and never to raise the sword except it were against an enemy, except it were to preserve their lives.

And this was their faith, that by so doing God would prosper them in the land. . . .

Yea, verily, verily I say unto you, if all men had been, and were, and ever would be, like unto Moroni, behold, the very powers of hell would have been shaken forever; yea, the devil would never have power over the hearts of the children of men” (Alma 48:7, 10-15, 17).

Captain Moroni exemplified what it means to be a patriot. He was the ultimate freeman. He has an honored place in the Freedom Fighter Hall of Fame. His Herculean struggle for his people earned him eternal glory. And he was the epitome of the “Christian soldier” marching “with the cross of Jesus” (Hymn No. 246, “Onward, Christian Soldiers,” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints).

We have an analog to Captain Moroni in our own history. General George Washington was such a man of similar stature. He was also a strong and mighty individual, a man with a brilliant mind, a patriot who worked for the welfare of his country, and a deeply devout Christian. Just as Moroni bowed himself to the earth and supplicated the Lord for assistance, General Washington relied upon the Lord during the Revolution. At the outset of that struggle, he wrote:

No Man has a more perfect Reliance on the all-wise, and powerful dispensations of the Supreme Being than I have nor thinks his aid more necessary” (George Washington to William Gordon, May 13, 1776).

Captain Moroni16

The righteous portion of the Nephites were well-grounded in just principles. They knew that conquest was wrong. They knew that the Lord only supports taking the sword in self-defense and to fulfill His divine purposes. Similarly, early Americans abhorred aggressive war and only shouldered their muskets when the British monarchists came to disarm and enslave them. Thomas Jefferson observed:

If there be one principle more deeply rooted than any other in the mind of every American, it is that we should have nothing to do with conquest” (Thomas Jefferson to William Short, July 28, 1791).

The Americans’ War for Independence was a defensive action against modern-day king-men. Our People, like the Nephites, fought a war for their very survival. We had General Washington and the Nephites had Captain Moroni. And as the Nephites rent their coats as a token that they would serve God and thereby receive His protection, so, too, did modern Americans declare their “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.” When you recognize the parallels between ancient and recent history, and recognize that we are today passing through a similar period of division centering on religion and Liberty, The Book of Mormon becomes all the more relevant and useful.

We return to Captain Moroni’s story. Eventually, King Amalickiah’s Lamanite forces invaded Nephite territory. Moroni had cleverly fortified every city throughout the land (the ruins of those impressive forts can be found throughout the heartland of America) and the initial thrusts were repulsed. Amalickiah “was exceedingly wroth, and he did curse God, and also Moroni, swearing with an oath that he would drink his blood” (Alma 49:27). Amalickiah restrategized and, approximately five years later, personally led a new invasion.

This invasion happened as yet another group of Nephites attempted to break away and the society was rife with division. The Book of Mormon gives a commentary about those who caused the new contentions:

Therefore, those who were desirous that the law should be altered were angry with [the newly-elected chief judge Pahoran], and desired that he should no longer be chief judge over the land; therefore there arose a warm dispute concerning the matter. . . .

And it came to pass that those who were desirous that Pahoran should be dethroned from the judgment-seat were called king-men, for they were desirous that the law should be altered in a manner to overthrow the free government and to establish a king over the land.

And those who were desirous that Pahoran should remain chief judge over the land took upon them the name of freemen; and thus was the division among them, for the freemen had sworn or covenanted to maintain their rights and the privileges of their religion by a free government.

And it came to pass that this matter of their contention was settled by the voice of the people. And it came to pass that the voice of the people came in favor of the freemen, and Pahoran retained the judgment-seat, which caused much rejoicing among the brethren of Pahoran and also many of the people of liberty, who also put the king-men to silence, that they durst not oppose but were obliged to maintain the cause of freedom.

Now those who were in favor of kings were those of high birth, and they sought to be kinds; and they were supported by those who sought power and authority over the people” (Alma 51:4-8).

Captain Moroni17

This division and infighting happened at the exact time that Amalickiah attacked. So bitter were the king-men that they had been thwarted yet again by the freemen that when they knew the Lamanites had invaded “they refused to take up arms, for they were so wroth with the chief judge, and also with the people of liberty, that they would not take up arms to defend their country” (Alma 51:13).

We read that when Captain Moroni was apprised of the king-men’s sedition, he was “exceedingly wroth because of the stubbornness of those people whom he had labored with so much diligence to preserve; yea, he was exceedingly wroth; his soul was filled with anger against them” (Alma 51:14). Moroni was forced to withdraw his troops from their defensive positions to deal with the king-men problem first. The record states that “he sent a petition, with the voice of the people, unto the governor of the land” requesting power “to compel those dissenters to defend their country or to put them to death” (Alma 51:15).

The Book of Mormon attests that Moroni was so concerned because such sedition “had been hitherto a cause of all their destruction” (Alma 51:16). The Captain’s petition was granted and he “commanded that his army should go against those king-men, to pull down their pride and their nobility and level them with the earth, or they should take up arms and support the cause of liberty” (Alma 51:17).

The same king-men who refused to lift their weapons to defend their country nevertheless drew the sword to fight against their countrymen. Moroni’s disciplined men were victorious, however, and the king-men were killed, imprisoned, or “compelled to hoist the title of liberty upon their towers, and in their cities, and to take up arms in defence of their country” (Alma 51:20). Though he did not entirely wipe out the monarchical ideology, Moroni successfully destroyed the king-men as an organization. “[T]hey were brought down to humble themselves like unto their brethren, and to fight valiantly for their freedom from bondage” (Alma 51:21).

During the chaos, Amalickiah was able to capture a number of Nephite cities. He would have continued cutting his way through the land, but a commander named Teancum was dispatched to stop him, which he successfully did because his men were “great warriors; for every man of Teancum did exceed the Lamanites in their strength and in their skill of war” (Alma 51:31). Being repulsed after a hard day of fighting, Amalickiah camped for the night. Teancum, however, wanted to end the war as quickly as possible. He crept into the Lamanite camp, found Amalickiah as he slept, and “put a javelin to his heart,” thus ending Amalickiah’s evil reign (Alma 51:33-36).

The war did not end as Teancum had hoped, however. Amalickiah’s brother Ammoron ascended to the throne and intensified the conflagration, besieging all parts of the land. The war raged for years with both victories and setbacks for the Nephites. I leave you to read about the specific battles and strategy in the book of Alma in The Book of Mormon. I jump to the concluding episode of the war.

The Book of Mormon32

Though the king-men were no longer called by that name, enough people maintained the elitist philosophy to be a major impediment to the war effort. Near the end of the war, Moroni and other commanders stopped receiving sufficient supplies of men and food. Moroni began to suspect that a faction existed within the government which sought their defeat. “Moroni was angry with the government, because of their indifference concerning the freedom of their country” (Alma 59:13). He wrote a bristling epistle that everyone should read in full. I draw a few noteworthy excerpts from its contents – lines which equally apply to those traitors who infest our own government today.

Speaking to the “the chief judge and the governor over the land, and also to all those who have been chosen by this people to govern and manage the affairs of this war,” Moroni chided:

Can you think to sit upon your thrones in a state of thoughtless stupor, while your enemies are spreading the work of death around you? Yea, while they are murdering thousands of your brethren –

Yea, even they who have looked up to you for protection, yeah, have placed you in a situation that ye might have succored them. . . .

. . . many have fought and bled out their lives because of their great desires which they had for the welfare of this people; yea, and this they have done when they were about to perish with hunger, because of your exceedingly great neglect towards them.

. . . ye ought to have stirred yourselves more diligently for the welfare and the freedom of this people; but behold, ye have neglected them insomuch that the blood of thousands shall come upon your heads for vengeance; yea, for known unto God were all their cries, and all their sufferings. . . .

. . . had it not been for the war which broke out among ourselves; yea, were it not for these king-men, who caused so much bloodshed among ourselves; yea, at the time we were contending among ourselves, if we had united our strength as we hitherto have done; yea, had it not been for the desire of power and authority which those king-men had over us; had they been true tot he cause of our freedom, and united with us, and gone forth against our enemies, instead of taking up their swords against us, which was the cause of so much bloodshed among ourselves; yea, if we had gone forth against them in the strength of the Lord, we should have dispersed our enemies. . . .

But behold, now the Lamanites are coming upon us, taking possession of our lands, and they are murdering our people with the sword, yea, our women and our children, and also carrying them away captive, causing them that they should suffer all manner of afflictions, and this because of the great wickedness of those who are seeking for power and authority, yea, even those king-men.

But why should I say much concerning this matter? For we know not but what ye yourselves are seeking for authority. We know not but what ye are also traitors to your country. . . .

Do ye suppose that God will look upon you as guiltless while ye sit still and behold these things? Behold I say unto you, Nay. Now I would that ye should remember that God has said that the inward vessel shall be cleansed first, and then shall the outer vessel be cleansed also.

And now, except ye do repent of that which ye have done, and begin to be up and doing . . . behold it will be expedient that we content no more with the Lamanites until we have first cleansed our inward vessel, yea, even the great head of our government.

And except ye grant mine epistle, and come out and show unto me a true spirit of freedom. . . .

. . . I will come unto you, and if there be any among you that has a desire for freedom, yea, if there be even a spark of freedom remaining, behold I will stir up insurrections among you, even until those who have desires to usurp power and authority shall become extinct.

Yea, behold I do not fear your power nor your authority, but it is my God whom I fear; and it is according to his commandments that I do take my sword to defend the cause of my country, and it is because of your iniquity that we have suffered so much loss.

Behold it is time, yea, the time is now at hand, that except ye do bestir yourselves in the defence of your country and your little ones, the sword of justice doth hang over you. . . .

Behold, I am Moroni, your chief captain. I seek not for power, but to pull it down. I seek not for honor of the world, but for the glory of my God, and the freedom and welfare of my country” (Alma 60:1, 7-10, 16-18, 23-25, 27-29, 36).

Captain Moroni18

Captain Moroni was a man of such integrity, sincerity, and passion that he would move Heaven and earth to fulfill his covenants, defend his country, and secure his people’s Freedom. He knew that there is a price to be paid for Liberty and that everyone must pay it. He further understood that a divided nation is easily conquered, but a united one is difficult to destroy. He chided the government for its neglect and singled out those whose desire was power as traitors to their country. As patriots in all ages have done, he put his own neck on the line in denouncing tyrants and advocating Freedom. He was willing to challenge even his own government when that government was wrong. Such was the integrity of Captain Moroni.

In response to Moroni’s epistle, the chief judge Pahoran responded that he stood firmly with the freemen but that a faction had “risen up in rebellion against me, and also those of my people who are freemen” (Alma 61:3). It was this group of power-hungry autocrats who took over the capital, drove the legitimate government out, and stopped the supply of provisions to Moroni’s armies. They went so far as to appoint a king and entered into an alliance with the Lamanites. Part of Pahoran’s letter to Moroni reads:

I, Pahoran, do not seek for power, save only to retain my judgment-seat that I may preserve the rights and the liberty of my people. My soul standeth fast in that liberty in the which God hath made us free. . . .

Therefore, my beloved brother, Moroni, let us resist evil, and whatsoever evil we cannot resist with our words, yea, such as rebellions and dissensions, let us resist them with our swords, that we may retain our freedom, that we may rejoice in the privilege of our church, and in the cause of our Redeemer and our God” (Alma 61:9, 14).

Upon receiving news of the insurrection and Pahoran’s continued faithfulness, Captain Moroni took a part of his army and marched to Pahoran. Together, they put down the rebellion in the capital and then turned their sights toward the Lamanite invaders. With the cancer of rebellion finally in remission and the Nephites unified under Captain Moroni’s banner, the Nephites swept the Lamanites before them. They drove the Lamanites, led by King Ammoron, to the edge of their land and prepared for a final fight.

At this juncture, Teancum again appears in the story. Recall that Teancum had previously snuck into the Lamanite camp and killed Amalickiah. As the Lamanites camped, Teancum attempted a repeat of his earlier feat. This time, however, Ammoron was able to alert his guards before dying. The Lamanite guards chased Teancum and killed him, ending the life of one of the greatest Nephite Freedom Fighters.

We are told that when Moroni and the other commanders learned of his death, “they were exceedingly sorrowful” (Alma 62:37). The Book of Mormon pays great tribute to this warrior. Teancum’s memorial is one that I have always striven for. On my tombstone, I hope it is said of me what was written and said of Teancum:

[B]ehold, he had been a man who had fought valiantly for his country, yea, a true friend to liberty” (Alma 62:37).

The day following Teancum’s tragic death, Captain Moroni’s armies drove the Lamanites out of their land, ending that phase of senseless war. Once the fortifications had been built up again, Moroni resigned his post and retired to his home, much the same way George Washington resigned his generalship after the War for Independence and took his rest at Mount Vernon.

The times of war and struggle recorded in The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ give us clear examples of what Freedom is, what it takes to maintain, and what type of threats we should be on guard against. In the first place, we learn that a free government is one in which the “voice of the people” is prominent. However, unlike a pure democracy where the mob rules, a truly free government is based on the rule of law. Nephite law was originally revealed from God and accorded with the commandments. The government was not a theocracy, but the laws were just and inspired.

Constitution7

Similarly, the U.S. Constitution is an inspired document that promotes the power of the People tempered by just laws. It is part of my religion that the Lord established the Constitution. In modern times, our Lord has referred to “the laws and constitution of the people, which I have suffered to be established, and should be maintained for the rights and protection of all flesh” (Doctrine and Covenants 101:77).

In a parallel to Mosiah’s wish that the Nephites practice self-government so that every the people’s sins may “be answered upon their own heads,” the Lord further stated that He established the U.S. Constitution so that every person may act “according to the moral agency which I have given unto him, that every man may be accountable for his own sins in the day of judgment” (Doctrine and Covenants 101:78).

The Savior continued by saying that “it is not right that any man should be in bondage one to another.

And for this purpose have I established the Constitution of this land, by the hands of wise men whom I raised up unto this very purpose, and redeemed the land by the shedding of blood” (Doctrine and Covenants 101:79-80).

Elsewhere, the Lord has revealed:

And that law of the land which is constitutional, supporting the principle of freedom in maintaining rights and privileges, belongs to all mankind, and is justifiable before me” (Doctrine and Covenants 98:5).

Finally, the Lord has said, regarding government, that “whatsoever is more or less” than the holy principles of the Constitution “cometh of evil” (Doctrine and Covenants 98:5-7).

The Nephite example captures these principles and shows them in action. The Nephite people lived under an inspired system of self-rule that involved just laws which protected individual Liberty. The society consented to follow these laws and maintain their collective privileges and individual rights. They understood that the individual is accountable to God for his behavior and must shoulder the responsibility of exercising his moral agency correctly.

We also see that judges, comparable to elected representatives today, were appointed not to dictate, but to enforce the law. They were strictly accountable to the voting public and could be removed from their posts if they failed to uphold the law. Even this removal process was not a knee-jerk thing, but a procedure codified in the law similar the way modern impeachments are heavily regulated and should never be based on majority ire.

As Nephite history shows, when a small group of people try to exercise their power to overrule the accepted law in order force their point of view or lifestyle on the majority, contention and warfare often result. We also see that when people become detached from the Gospel of Jesus Christ and consumed with anger toward that which is good, even the results of a popular election can’t stop their agitation. People in this situation are prone to violence – even civil war. Nothing but the firmness of freemen can stop king-men, insurrectionists, and revolutionaries from destroying the Liberty of a nation. At times, good men who love Liberty and who cherish peace must fight to maintain them and to defend their families.

The salient points to understand from the history of Nephite government, then, are these: That ordered Liberty is the ideal; that Liberty and law go hand in hand; that political power springs from the People; that government representatives are accountable to the public; that the People are accountable to God for their actions in relation to government; and that self-rule is vastly superior to monarchy.

Furthermore, in the example of the power-hungry king-men, we see that lust for control leads to bitterness, treason, contention, and bloodshed. We see that evil yet persuasive men like Amlici and Amalickiah have the power to upend society, overthrow governments, and destroy Liberty unless the People are vigilant and humble themselves before God, relying upon His deliverance. We also learn that tyrants motivated by a lust for power are inherently weaker than people motivated by their love of God, Freedom, and country.

Captain Moroni15

And in the story of Captain Moroni and the freemen, we see the qualities a free people must possess. First, we note that the greatest Freedom Fighters and patriots are those who bow the knee to the King of kings, Jesus Christ. Next, we learn that unity is key to any endeavor. A unified society can do great things, but a divided nation is bound to fail. Third, we see that a real leader, a man like Moroni, is one that is full of passion and sincerity, a person who drives on toward his goal regardless of opposition, and a selfless servant who willingly gives his time, talents, and everything he possesses to noble causes, such as the cause of Freedom.

In our day of rampant confusion where personal Liberty is on the wane and the forces of Satanic communism are on the rise, which I discuss at length in my upcoming article “The Book of Mormon Speaks of Conspiracy,” the lessons contained in the pages of The Book of Mormon are absolutely priceless. We can gain badly needed wisdom from Mosiah, courage from the freemen, and inspiration from Captain Moroni, Teancum, and Pahoran. We can be motivated by knowing that another free people who lived on this American continent went through the same struggles we’re passing through today and that they prevailed with the Lord’s help. The Book of Mormon lets us know that we are not alone in our quest for Liberty, that Freedom is worth fighting for, and that every sacrifice for our Faith, Families, and Freedom is not only worth it, but is needed and remembered.

Finally, The Book of Mormon informs those of us who inhabit the same land that the Nephites inhabited, this Promised Land of America, this shining city on a hill, the future Zion of God, that we are under special obligations. If we meet our obligations faithfully, we have special promises extended to us. An ancient prophet, speaking to you and me, told us that America is a covenant land – a special land blessed above all others. He spoke of this land as “the land of promise, which was choice above all other lands, which the Lord God had preserved for a righteous people.” He then explained:

And he had sworn in his wrath . . . that whoso should possess this land of promise, from that time henceforth and forever, should serve him, the true and only God, or they should be swept off when the fulness of his wrath should come upon them.

And now, we can behold the decrees of God concerning this land, that it is a land of promise; and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall serve God, or they shall be swept off when the fulness of his wrath shall come upon them. And the fulness of his wrath cometh upon them when they are ripened in iniquity.

For behold, this is a land which is choice above all other lands; wherefore he that doth possess it shall serve God or shall be swept off; for it is the everlasting decree of God. And it is not until the fulness of iniquity among the children of the land, that they are swept off.

And this cometh unto you, O ye Gentiles, that ye may know the decrees of God—that ye may repent, and not continue in your iniquities until the fulness come, that ye may not bring down the fulness of the wrath of God upon you as the inhabitants of the land have hitherto done.

Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ, who hath been manifested by the things which we have written” (Ether 2:7-12).

From this passage, we learn that America is a Promised Land – a covenant land. The covenant is that those who live in America will serve Jesus Christ or they will be destroyed. If they serve the Lord, He has promised that we will “be free from bondage, and captivity, and from all other nations under heaven.” Almighty God has decreed that America shall be inhabited by a righteous, Christian people and no other.

The prophet Nephi, the namesake of the Nephite nation, saw a vision of the discovery and founding of America by a Christian people that carried the Bible with them. He saw that they would fight and win a war for their Independence. He prophesied that they would gain the land for their inheritance because they would humble themselves before their Maker. And, because of their humility, the Lord would prosper and protect them, saving them from all hostile nations. Nephi wrote:

And I beheld the Spirit of the Lord, that it was upon the Gentiles, and they did prosper and obtain the land for their inheritance; and I beheld that they were white, and exceedingly fair and beautiful, like unto my people before they were slain.

And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld that the Gentiles who had gone forth out of captivity did humble themselves before the Lord; and the power of the Lord was with them.

The Book of Mormon19

And I beheld that their mother Gentiles were gathered together upon the waters, and upon the land also, to battle against them.

And I beheld that the power of God was with them, and also that the wrath of God was upon all those that were gathered together against them to battle.

And I, Nephi, beheld that the Gentiles that had gone forth out of captivity were delivered by the power of God out of the hands of all other nations.

And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld that they did prosper in the land; and I beheld a book, and it was carried forth among them.

And the angel said unto me: Knowest thou the meaning of the book?

And I said unto him: I know not.

And he said: . . . The book that thou beholdest is a record of the Jews, which contains the covenants of the Lord which he hath made unto the house of Israel . . . wherefore, they are of great worth unto the Gentiles” (1 Nephi 13:14-19).

The Lord has presided over the history of America from the beginning. It was He who brought the Nephites here and it was He who brought our own forefathers to this land. It was the Lord who protected and delivered the Americans out of Europe’s iron grip. His miraculous power was on display to such a high degree during the War for Independence that George Washington was compelled to write:

The hand of Providence has been so conspicuous in all this, that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith, and more than wicked, that has not gratitude enough to acknowledge his obligations” (George Washington to Thomas Nelson, August 20, 1778).

America is the Lord’s base of operations. It is His land. He protects it. And He requires that those who are privileged to live here worship Him. When we do, His power is poured out in our behalf.

Another Nephite prophet named Jacob similarly prophesied about this special land. His prophecies deal specifically with our day. He foretold:

But behold, this land, said God, shall be a land of thine inheritance, and the Gentiles shall be blessed upon the land.

And this land shall be a land of liberty unto the Gentiles, and there shall be no kings upon the land, who shall raise up unto the Gentiles.

And I will fortify this land against all other nations.

And he that fighteth against Zion shall perish, saith God.

For he that raiseth up a king against me shall perish, for I, the Lord, the king of heaven, will be their king, and I will be a light unto them forever, that hear my words” (2 Nephi 10:10-14).

As before, we see that America is a covenant land where the people are expected to serve Jesus Christ, the rightful King of America. If they do, they will be blessed and protected against all other nations. Anyone who attempts to establish a king over this land and thereby abolish the system of Freedom and self-rule established by the Lord via the Constitution “shall perish.” We have a great need as Americans to internalize these promises and humble ourselves before the Redeemer.

The Book of Mormon11

The Bible contains similar promises of a general nature. In the Old Testament, we read:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Isaiah also told the House of Israel that if they repent and become obedient to God’s laws, they will “eat the good of the land” (Isaiah 1:19). Also, if they repent and “put away the evil” from among them, the Lord “will restore [their] judges as at first, and [their] counsellors as at the beginning” (Isaiah 1:16, 26). These promises are only made to the penitent, however, just as the promises in The Book of Mormon are extended only to the righteous.

Lastly, the Bible tells us that “where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty” (2 Corinthians 3:17). And so it is.

The Book of Mormon is immeasurably valuable for many reasons, not least of which is that it speaks of Freedom. It shows us what Freedom is and how to maintain it. It gives us examples of correct principles in action. It shows the innate power possessed by the People and the frailty of tyrants. It inspires us to rely upon the Lord and go forward in His power to defend our Faith, Families, and Freedom. Because of its poignant examples, such as the story of Captain Moroni and the Nephite freemen, The Book of Mormon is the ultimate handbook of Freedom.

This sacred volume of scripture also is important to Americans because it speaks specifically to them. It informs them of the covenant they are under by virtue of living in this land. It tells them that they must repent and worship the Lord Jesus Christ. It states rather clearly that the Lord is the King of America and that His law is our legitimate law.

Dear reader, The Book of Mormon is the word of the Lord equal to the Bible. These two divine witnesses belong together. They confirm each other. They both fervently testify of Jesus Christ. Together, they abolish false doctrines, dispel myths, and confirm the truth. And as one they prove that only a righteous and virtuous people, a people that trusts in the Lord, and people that humbles itself, is capable of the Freedom and blessing of self-government.

Captain Moroni1

Let us raise our own Title of Liberty in our own lives and wherever we have influence. Let us rise in defense of our Faith, Families, and Freedom. Let us exalt God, our Freedom, and the Constitution. Men, be men. Step forward to safeguard your wives and children, your families, and your homes. We are under unrelenting attack we need all hands on deck. Do your duty, stand firm, submit to the Lord’s laws, uphold the Constitution He established, and then trust that the Lord will fulfill His promises to defend our land against tyrants.

May the Lord bless you, my fellow patriot. May all who come to the Lord in sincerity be electrified and given the power to stand firm through tribulation. May the Lord bless all those who faithfully share the thrilling stories found in The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. May Almighty God prosper people like Darin Southam who are attempting to inspire freemen everywhere through the remarkable history of Captain Moroni. And may we live so that it may be one day said of us that we were true friends to Liberty. I close with my testimony, which I have from the Holy Ghost and cannot deny, that The Book of Mormon is true and that it speaks of Freedom.

Things They Don’t Allow You To Say

I write this article from the perspective of one who has spent years publishing and debating his thoughts in books, articles, formal political documents, online forums, and at a handful of public speaking events alongside notable figures like G. Edward Griffin, Cliven Bundy, and Sheriff Richard Mack. I’ve spent time as an admin for the Independent American Party’s and Awaken to our Awful Situation’s Facebook pages, as well as the sole admin for seven of my own pages and groups. On my pages alone, I’ve been banned ten times for a total of eight months in Facebook jail. I’ve had a number of posts deleted and others labeled as “fake news” (fact-checked, naturally, by the George Soros-funded Snopes), and have been periodically shadow-banned. Through it all, I’ve experienced enough censorship and opposition to be able to formulate a solid view of what they don’t allow you to say.

communism392

First, who is the they I’m referring to? You can take your pick – the Illuminati, Freemasons, Zionists, Jesuits, globalists, Fabian Socialists, Black Nobility, Bilderbergers, the Committee of 300, the Establishment, the Deep State, the Elite, the Swamp, the powers-that-be, etc. The major thing all these groups have in common is their distinctly communist ideology. I therefore refer to the conspirators against mankind collectively as Marxists or communists, though terms like “globalists” or “the Establishment” are perfectly legitimate. Suffice it to say that the powers-that-be run a global campaign of censorship and intimidation against anyone, anywhere who speaks truth, exposes their lies, corrects their sanitized historical record, and advocates traditional or Christian principles. My goal today is to articulate several items that will get you in hot water with the Marxist censors and to encourage you to tell the truth anyway regardless of the consequences.

Many of the points I’ll mention below are inexorably connected with international Jewry – a taboo topic in and of itself. The black mark attached to anyone who utters the word “Jewry” brings to mind the old idea that “to know who rules over you, learn who you’re not allowed to criticize.” I’ve consistently opposed the notion that the conspiracy is Jewish; it is, rather, Satanic and enlists people of all races, religions, and backgrounds. However, I have been equally vocal about the documentable fact that a disproportionately high number of Jews inhabit top positions within the global conspiracy apparatus. From George Soros to Henry Kissinger, from the Rothschilds to Jeff Bezos, from Mark Zuckerberg to Bob Iger, from Dianne Feinstein to Sheldon Adelson, and from Elena Kagan to Richard Haass, there’s a Jewish radical – and Jewish money and media support – intimately involved in nearly every phase of our collective enslavement.

So ubiquitous is Jewish involvement in the conspiracy that any mention of Jewish involvement can get you figuratively, or in some infamous cases literally, hauled before the Inquisition. To sidestep the necessity of writing the buzzword “Jew,” which can get you quickly censored on Jewish-owned media platforms (which is essentially all of them), people have taken to adding ellipses to words, such as to the word (((they))). There’s a history behind this practice which I leave you to search independently. The point is that one of the myriad of items they don’t allow you to say is that Jews, or the state of Israel, are involved with the conspiracy.

The conspiracy also does not allow you to state with impunity the truth that communism – the foulest and most murderous ideology in history is a de facto Jewish movement. Karl Marx was a Jew from a long line of rabbis, though he was raised Christian and eventually defected to Satanism. His communist successors, Lenin, Trotsky, Zinoviev, and many more, were ethnic Jews as well. Vladimir Putin, of all people, admitted in a speech to a Jewish audience that some 85% of the first Bolshevik regime were Jewish. This holds true with the estimates of the best Sovietologists. But they do not want you to know that in modern times communism was invented and pushed forward primarily by Jews, that Jews were and are used as foot soldiers in the communist world revolution, that Jews like Genrikh Yagoda and Stalin’s brother-in-law Lazar Kaganovich engineered the Holodomor famine which claimed the lives of at least 10 million Ukrainians, that the work of torture and murder carried out by the Soviets was directed by Jewish hands, that Jews almost exclusively operated the brutal Soviet GULAG where millions rotted in wretched enslavement or perished, and that the Communist International (Comintern) frequently chose Jewish communists to head up their subversive operations throughout the world as in Spain, Germany, Hungary, and Mexico. Though these are historical facts, they cannot allow you to mention them without punishment.

communism1

They don’t allow you to say that 9/11 was an inside job without smearing, silencing, and persecuting you. The horrible September 11th attacks were indeed terrorist attacks, but the real terrorists were not nineteen Arab hijackers using box-cutters, shoddy piloting skills, and unprecedented good “luck.” Though I believe we might not ever be able to specifically name the real perpetrators, it is abundantly clear that the “official” story is riddled with massive holes and that Osama bin Laden did not run this sophisticated attack from a cave in Afghanistan. There’s actually no credible evidence that bin Laden had any part in the attacks. He even denied his involvement in an interview after the attacks, explaining the truth that the Qur’an forbids the murder of innocents. Certainly the FBI didn’t think he was involved and never formally charged bin Laden with a crime. If the evidence was as overwhelming as the controlled media would have you believe, why did our government never formally charge the alleged mastermind of the most murderous attack ever perpetrated on American soil?

The smoking gun of all smoking guns proving that 9/11 was a much larger and more sophisticated operation was WTC 7 which was not hit by a plane yet dissolved into powder as it fell neatly and at free-fall speed into its own footprint. See Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth’s phenomenal film “9/11: Explosive Evidence – The Experts Speak Out” for an overview of the facts. There are far too many firsthand accounts – some of which are on video – of explosions going off before, simultaneous with, and after the planes hit the towers to believe that the collapse of the Twin Towers was the result of localized office fires caused by the planes. Brigham Young University-Provo Professor Steven E. Jones’s research conclusively demonstrated the existence of thermite or thermate on the scene – that is, the existence of military grade explosives. For his research, Dr. Jones was labeled an “anti-Semite” and forced into retirement. Obviously, they don’t allow you to conduct credible, professional research into the real goings-on of 9/11.

Several powers such as our own corrupt intelligence services, Russia, and Israel, had the capability and motive to have pulled off the dastardly September 11th attacks. Russia has been the major beneficiary of our disastrous War on Terror and KGB dictator Vladimir Putin was the first head of state to call and encourage President Bush in his endeavor. Remember that the communists are the founders of modern international terrorism, that most modern terrorists were trained by Russian intelligence, and that these KGB-linked terrorists have carried out attacks on every continent – including attacks in the United States in the past. This fits their playbook perfectly. They cannot be ruled out as having at least some involvement.

911#1

The Israelis also cannot be ruled out. Recall that five Israelistwo of which were confirmed by the FBI to be Mossad agents – were arrested on 9/11 (search “dancing Israelis”) for celebrating as they filmed the planes hitting the WTC (which “event” they later admitted on Israeli TV they had been sent to “document”). At the same time, the U.S. government had been investigating a massive Israeli spy ring operating on our soil. 140 Israeli spies – some of which had explosives training or were active military – had been apprehended in the months leading up to 9/11. Immediately after the attacks, 60 additional Israelis with connections to Israeli intelligence were arrested and questioned. As a bare minimum, Israeli intelligence had intimate foreknowledge of the attacks and must be implicated. With a friend like Israel, who needs enemies? 

Finally, double agents or corrupt individuals within our own intelligence apparatus – of which there is no shortage, especially of the turncoat communist variety – must all be suspect. For instance, it would have been impossible for a foreign power to have stood down or diverted our military, such as happened. That had to have been an in-house order. At the very least, our own people – traitors posing as loyal intelligence operatives in the CIA or as innocent members of our government – had a part in the attacks. Certainly our media and key government insiders played a central role in the post-attack cover up, which implies complicity.

And don’t forget the extensive international insider trading happening at the time of the attack or the fact that several prominent people, including the mayor of San Francisco, have admitted they were warned not to fly that day. Whoever precisely is to blame, the fact is that nineteen Arabs – some of whom are still alive and have testified of their innocence – did not penetrate America’s state-of-the-art defenses and bring down three buildings with two planes. It simply didn’t happen, folks. Yet, if you state the obvious – namely, that it could have only been the work of a much deeper and higher level conspiracy – they get very angry and brand you a “conspiracy nut” for all time.

I suggest that 9/11 was likely a collaborative effort by several intelligence agencies of various countries or at least individual operatives in those agencies – to perpetrate an attack on the United States, blame it on Islamic scapegoats, and rope us into a disastrous, long-term war that would fulfill numerous anti-American objectives such as weakening our economy, increasing police state powers domestically, creating paranoia about “terrorists” (which they label anyone who dissents to their agenda), spreading thin and wearing out our military, creating friction at home, and making the United States into a world pariah by painting us as an oil-stealing, power-hungry, ruthless bogeyman. This is what they don’t want you to learn or say.

In addition, if you call the “War on Terror” a fraud, they say you’re unpatriotic or dangerous. Even certain “conservative” media pundits who shall remain unnamed label you a “danger to the nation” if you oppose our undeclared, unconstitutional, unjustifiable “War on Terror.” Did you know that in October 2001, the Taliban agreed to help us apprehend Osama bin Laden, but President Bush rejected the offer? Instead, we preferred to bomb and invade the nation of Afghanistan without proof that bin Laden was actually behind 9/11 and while rejecting an offer of help from the local regime. It might also interest you to realize that even mainstream sources have reported on the fact that the invasion plan for Afghanistan was drawn up before 9/11 and that bases in Uzbekistan and other Central Asian nations were already being prepped to stage the operation.

War on Terror1

What’s worse, we decided to invade Iraq two years later for no reason whatsoever except, it seems, on the word of the Israelis who had been urging us to depose Saddam Hussein for years and whose intelligence services implicated Iraq in the 9/11 attacks. As much as we may dislike Russia-backed, KGB-trained regimes – which are especially prevalent in the Middle East – do we have a right to bomb, besiege, invade, and occupy them? I submit that we do not unless they have harmed us, attacked our interests, or present a legitimate and imminent threat. I submit that Thomas Jefferson was correct when he said: “If there be one principle more deeply rooted than any other in the mind of every American it is that we should have nothing to do with conquest” (Thomas Jefferson to William Short, 1791). This is the true American spirit. Yet, if you oppose their “War on Terror” for any reason – constitutional, ideological, economic, or moral – they rush to stigmatize and delegitimize you.

Similarly, if you cite the mountain of evidence contradicting the Warren Commission’s “official” position that President Kennedy was assassinated by “lone nut” Lee Harvey Oswald, they go into a frenzy. By this standard, the U.S. Congress itself is a “conspiracy theorist” because in 1976 a congressional commission declared that there must have been two shooters; ergo, there was a conspiracy and one of the assassins is still at large. But of course the truth is much deeper. The evidence demonstrates that not only was Oswald a “patsy” like he testified before being murdered by a man linked to the mob, but that multiple assassins shooting from several locations riddled JFK’s car with bullets – as the Secret Service did nothing, broke protocol, and were intentionally undermanned – and that the forensic evidence witnessed by the doctors in Dallas was tampered with and altered in Washington, D.C. to fit the narrative. Yet, this is something they don’t want you to say.

Staying in the 60s for a moment, they don’t want you to know that before his death JFK had given the order to pull out of Vietnam completely. LBJ’s first order as president, which came mere hours after JFK’s brutal murder, was to reverse JFK’s directive and massively expand what became known as the War in Vietnam. Curiously, the dictum reversing JFK’s order had been written and submitted before JFK was shot. But of course, they can’t allow you to know this – just like they can’t allow you to inform others of the fact that the U.S. military actually won the War in Vietnam but Henry Kissinger deliberately sabotaged the peace efforts and gave South Vietnam to the communists.

They also don’t allow you to say, without being labeled a “racist” at least, that Martin Luther King, Jr. was a violent Marxist revolutionary and rampant plagiarizer with a devious sex life. Not surprisingly, King’s handlers were Jewish communists, most prominently Stanley Levison. King, who pretended to be a preacher, engaged in drunken sex orgies, beat prostitutes, and coerced women to perform lesbian acts for his amusement. This is a man who lied and cheated to “earn” his theological degree. He was a Marxist who was arrested on many occasions not because the police were racist, but because he was obstructing justice and disobeying the law. In all fairness, we should strip Michael King (his real name) of his title “doctor,” abolish the sycophantic holiday in his honor, and tell the truth that he was a lying, devious, immoral communist. Though, you won’t catch mainstream sources saying this because they won’t allow it to be said.

The truth about the Second World War is something else they absolutely don’t want you to know. They can’t allow you to say that a local war between Germany and Poland over territory that rightfully belonged to Germany and which was inhabited by ethnic Germans who were being abused and massacred by the Poles was deliberately turned into a world war by the British and French. On September 1, 1939, Germany retaliated against Poland for Poland’s attacks on her people. But it was on September 3 that the British and French declared war on Germany and French troops invaded Germany and occupied an eight kilometer swath of German land. Who declared war and struck the first blow that ignited the general war in Europe? The British and French. Yet, this is a cold hard fact they won’t let you say.

Eisenhower's Death Camps2

One of Eisenhower’s brutal post-war death camps

They also won’t allow you to know the truth that the worst atrocities committed during World War II were committed by the Allies against the Germans! Thomas Goodrich’s book Hellstorm is one of many that documents the atrocities in gory detail. Suffice it to say that we unnecessarily targeted civilians with our firebombings while the Soviets deliberately targets German women with rape. Some two million German women were raped by the Russian hordes at the end of, and even after, the war. Millions of Germans were displaced by the Soviets, and millions were murdered after the fighting ended. The Americans, British, and French also raped women, though their preferred methods of butchery were high-altitude bombing and starvation. Some 1-2 million German POWs were starved to death by order of Eisenhower after the war. Food from the Red Cross (which testified that Germany was the most staunch adherent to the Geneva Convention) was turned away – and sometimes burned outside the concentration camp gates – while hundreds of thousands of Germans who had surrendered in good faith withered. These unconscionable atrocities won’t appear in your school or university textbooks or in major Hollywood films, however, because they won’t allow the truth to be taught.

I’m sure you’re wondering, “But what of the Holocaust? Aren’t these atrocities understandable – even justified – by what the “Nazis” did?” Would it honestly surprise you at this point to learn that they have fabricated that history, too, just like they have fabricated atrocity propaganda for generations? Recall their World War One propaganda, now admitted by all historians to be utterly false, of German soldiers throwing Belgian babies into the air and impaling them on bayonets. In an April 13, 1923 speech, Adolf Hitler referred to this sort of libelous propaganda that turned world opinion against Germany: [T]he Jewish-democratic press of America had to accomplish its masterpiece – that is to say, it had to drive into the most horrible of all wars a great peaceloving people which was as little concerned in European struggles as it was in the North Pole: America was to intervene ‘in defense of civilization,’ and the Americans were persuaded so to do by an atrocity propaganda conducted in the name of civilization which from A to Z was a scandalous invention the like of which has never yet been seen – a farrago of lies and forgeries.” And so it was.

Remember that they also invented atrocity stories to rile us up to go to war against Iraq in 1991. In these atrocity fairy tales, Iraqi soldiers allegedly entered hospitals and murdered infants. The only problem is that the “eye witnesses” lied and were put up to the task to foment enough anger against Iraq to tolerate a U.S.-led military strike. It was the same in 2003 when we pushed the WMD tall tale and said we were invading Iraq to “spread democracy.” Time and time again atrocity propaganda provides either the pretext or later justification for military aggression.

Holohoax1

In like manner, they invented “Holocaust” propaganda tales to cover their own crimes and deflect pesky questions about war guilt. The “Holocaust” narrative isn’t even compelling to anyone who bothers to scratch the surface and do some digging. They have used a handful of false witnesses (famed “Holocaust survivors” who have later admitted their stories were fake or embellished are ubiquitous), scant or contradictory physical evidence, and a relentless smear campaign to push their tall tale. Through repetition and harsh shaming – including jail time and physical assault in some instances – against anyone who questions their narrative, they’ve created a culture of fear and blind acceptance. But the public’s blind acceptance doesn’t make something true. Indeed, general acceptance by the ignorant public is often a sign that there is a massive problem with whatever story is being peddled.

What’s most curious to me is that legions of former Jewish inmates at Auschwitz and other labor camps have testified to a radically different reality in the camps, yet their testimonies are summarily suppressed. Indeed, the SHOAH Foundation has chosen not to release most of their interviews with “Holocaust survivors.” Why? Perhaps it’s because they say things that do not jive with the accepted narrative. After all, many of those who have spoken out have testified that they were treated well, that they were paid for their labor in Auschwitz, that they performed theatrical plays, that they played soccer with SS guards, that they had access to the camp swimming pool (not normally shown to Auschwitz visitors) and brothels, that the Red Cross and others routinely visited the camp and never saw anything monstrous happening, and that though they may have heard horrible rumors of what was allegedly happening in their camps, they never personally witnessed any atrocities. The very fact that they’re alive belies the idea that the Germans were out to exterminate the Jews! A bullet to the back of the neck, Soviet-style, is a much more effective way of wiping out a population than a supposed gas chamber.

We should also suspect the mainstream narrative when we realize that all our initial information about gas chambers, crematoria, and death tolls in the millions came from the Soviets. Communists lie and deceive like it’s a bodily function. Don’t forget that it was the Soviet Union who murdered tens of thousands of Polish officers in the Katyn Forest and blamed it on Germany – a claim which the world accepted as “truth” for decades until the Soviets opened their archives and admitted the reality that Russia was the responsible party (validating what Hitler and the Germans had said about the matter). Yet, despite their mountain of lies, we’re supposed to trust the word of the Soviets when they allege that Germany slaughtered Jews in gas chambers!

Holohoax9

Should we also believe that the Germans used a peddle-operated brain-bashing machine to kill inmates, which was one of the initial Soviet claims? Or perhaps we should believe that Hitler developed an atom bomb and dropped it on some Jews in the Ukraine rather than on the Allied armies, as was also claimed at the Nuremberg show trials. Or yet still, maybe we ought to regurgitate the now universally debunked myth that Germans made soap and lampshades out of Jewish fat and skin. Or maybe we should continue to force our children to read The Diary of Anne Frank even though the New York Supreme Court has ruled it a forgery. At what point do the accusers lose their credibility in the eyes of the public? Are you afraid to tell the truth about the Holohoax simply because they don’t want you to? Isn’t telling the truth more important than enduring the mean names liars will call you for doing so?

It doesn’t matter how many Jewish and Israeli researchers debunk the myth that the Germans murdered 6 million Jews in gas chambers, they still call you “anti-Semitic” if you repeat the truth. The official archivists and historians at Auschwitz have lowered the alleged death toll at that labor (not death) camp from over 4 million to “about” one and a half million, consisting of those thought to be “mainlyJews (the Red Cross and numerous other historians and researchers put the number far lower and assign the cause of death as disease and starvation, not genocide). Automatically, the grand total must be lowered by 3 million – half the original “official” number. Yet, they would have you believe that 6-3=6. And when you factor in the lowered numbers at all the other death (i.e. labor) camps, the number dwindles to barely a blip on the radar. But be careful; this is something they don’t want you to know, let alone allow you to say! If you choose to speak the truth anyway, they might throw you in prison like Ernst Zündel or David Irving.

Holohoax13

Playing off this last point, it is apparent that the authentic history of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich is radically different than what they claim it is. I’ve written several articles on this point which you can find here, here, and here. Suffice it to say, they leap to silence you when you dare challenge their narrative that Hitler was the Devil incarnate. I’ve been banned more times from Facebook for speaking World War II truth than for any other reason. They simply don’t want you to know that far from being a genocidal madman, Hitler was a well-liked, well-respected, well-read reformer who promoted traditional families, Christianity (he was Catholic), and high morals while simultaneously opposing communism, Freemasonry, occultism, feminism, immorality, and the international bankers. He was not on the conspiracy’s payroll, trust you me. People who think he was controlled or empowered by the international conspiracy are horribly misinformed. Hitler opposed everything they stood for and in turn they destroyed him and hold him up to this very day as the arch-enemy of mankind. Anyone who stands up for him in interest of the truth is crucified and smeared as a “Nazi.” This situation of institutionalized ignorance will remain so long as they can dictate reality and silence truth-tellers, and so long as people on our side continue to lump Hitler in with the rest of the socialist psychopaths and repeat the Establishment’s garbage atrocity propaganda.

Don’t think they have unfairly treated Germany only. They have also twisted the history of the war against Japan. They portray Imperial Japan as a warmongering and brutal power which invaded China for conquest and later attacked us for no good reason. In fact, Japan’s foray into China was intended to thwart the incursion of communism into Asia. Before the war, Japanese writers were perplexed why the Western powers were not supporting their action against the communists flooding in from Soviet Russia. Japan was one of the three members of the Anti-Comintern Pact (i.e. anti-international communism) along with Germany and Italy. Isn’t it curious that the three nations that formally vowed to fight communism are the three singled out as the “enemy” in the propaganda they shove down our throats?

The reality is that Japan did not want war with the United States and only took that fateful step as a last option. However, as even prominent British historians have noted, few respectable nations would suffer the abuses heaped on Japan by the United States and Britain without going to war. Though they cry “conspiracy theorist!” the fact is that FDR – a through-and-through Marxist who surrounded himself with Soviet moles and had a veritable love affair with “Uncle Joe” Stalin – developed an eight-point plan to goad Japan into attacking us so that we could “justifiably” join the war against Germany and save the Soviet Union from imminent defeat. This is precisely what happened.

They not only prompted Pearl Harbor via their economic and political warfare, but had very precise foreknowledge of the attack (yet did absolutely nothing to stop it and didn’t warn our troops). They wanted it to happen in order to bring the United States into the war as their pawn! As the war they started progressed, they rejected numerous offers of surrender by both Germany and Japan (Germany alone offered peace terms close to twenty times), thus placing the war guilt fully on them. And, if you haven’t learned by now, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were wholly unnecessary from a war perspective, as quite literally all of our major generals publicly stated at the time. But of course these are things they won’t allow you to say to a mainstream audience.

They also do not want you to teach the reality that Spain’s Franco, Italy’s Mussolini, and modern Brazil’s Bolsonaro, to name only three world leaders often classified as “fascists” or “dictators,” came to power with one purpose – to stop communism in their countries. The Spanish Civil War, so-called, was in fact a communist uprising. Thousands of churches were burned to the ground. Thousands of priests were murdered. International brigades of Jews rushed in from the United States and elsewhere to assist the Spanish Marxists in their revolt. These communists created so much chaos that General Franco needed to step forward to restore order with a heavy hand. Franco, with Adolf Hitler’s indispensable help, saved Spain from turned into a full-fledged Soviet satellite. Mussolini similarly saved Italy from Marxism. And Bolsonaro – the “Trump of the Tropics” – is attempting to wrest his country from the strong grip of the communists. Naturally, this is something they won’t let you say to the general public which they desire to remain uninformed.

Another thing they don’t allow you to say above a whisper is that the current deluge of African and Middle Eastern immigrants in Europe is responsible for the massive rise in rape, crime, religious persecution of Christians, and terrorism. The statistics are clear – the migrants (largely Arab or Muslim, though certainly not practicing Muslims) are raping their way across the continent. Sweden and Germany are the two biggest victims of this hideous plague. They are storming into Britain and machete attacks in broad daylight are becoming routine. In France, hundreds of churches have been burned down by these terrorists in the past coupe of years, culminating in the suspicious destruction of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in April. And the infamous murder of Father Jacques Hamel next to the altar of his church outside Paris is a grotesque echo of Illuminati-inspired Jacobinism. Yet, the socialist authorities in Europe – and the social media censors globally – have declared it “hate speech” to identify the rapists and terrorists as immigrants, Muslims, or people of color. But truth is truth, regardless of whether they prohibit you from saying it.

Europe1

Similarly, they don’t want you to comprehend the immense damage illegal immigrants (i.e. invaders) are doing to the United States. As President Trump said, Mexico and other Marxist states in Latin America aren’t sending us their best people – they’re sending the dregs of society. The amount of drugs flowing across our Southern border is staggering. Some of this is brought in by our own corrupt intelligence services and a large percentage is brought in by the communists, but another sizable percentage comes here on the backs of illegals and cartel mules. They are changing not only the racial but political makeup of America by allowing these hordes of millions of socialists into our country. These dirt-poor invaders come from countries where they’ve been brainwashed into believing in socialism and expecting handouts from the welfare state. Consequently, when they arrive here, they’re on the fast track to registering and voting Democrat and living on the dole while complaining that we don’t speak their language and that we “stole” their ancestors’ land – a massive lie in and of itself. Of course, they won’t let you say any of this without branding you a loon, a “racist,” and a “right-wing extremist.”

They also won’t allow you to state the fact that there is no real white-on-black crime, racism, or discrimination in this country. Rather, the real crime epidemic is black-on-white, black-on-black, Latino-on-Latino, gang-on-gang, black-on-cop. White America is not plagued by violent crime, and is certainly not affected by racism, but the colored inner cities are. The communists focused heavily on indoctrinating and capturing the black and Latino populations in order to cause a race war and in order to funnel drugs and homosexuality through them to white America. They hold up agitators like MLK as icons of “peace,” but in reality they have radicalized all but a few blacks and Latinos and are preparing them to be cannon fodder in a coming civil war. Their agenda of creating a “Soviet America” is heavily dependent upon manipulating blacks and Latinos, and upon silencing whites by causing us to feel “white guilt” for our forefathers’ unsurpassed achievements, thus acquiescing to the destruction of our traditional culture and greatness. Because this is their agenda, they won’t allow you to get away with exposing it for long.

They also cringe when you cite the fact that South Africa was infinitely better off under white rule than black rule. Today, under the black communist regime, genocide is being perpetrated against the white population. Laws have been passed legalizing the confiscation of land from white farmers. The statistics are appalling. Each day numerous whites are both raped and murdered by the blacks. They’re rampaging throughout the nation, fueled by Marxist myths about “oppression” under white leadership. The true oppressors are those communists and terrorists who came to power with Nelson Mandela, a die-hard communist and convicted terrorist and Obama’s admitted role model. Africa is a miserable place today precisely because of the massive communist infiltration. But this is something they don’t want you to know or say. They would rather you believe that Africa is the way it is because of white colonialism and white oppression. But these myths fail the scratch test.

As implied earlier, homosexuality was pushed onto America by the cultural Marxists. They are behind the LGBT movement en toto. Henry Hay, a high-up Communist Party USA leader in his day, created the first homosexual association in the nation, the Mattachine Society, and went on to father the Radical Faeries and the pedophile organization known as the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). The LGBT movement is a communist front, as is feminism, from its inception! However, if you dare repeat this history or say that people afflicted by homosexuality and transgenderism have mental disorders, as the head psychiatrist at John Hopkins University famously declared, they will nail you for “hate speech.”

In the vein of sex perversions, they don’t want you to know that Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) is very real and very prevalent. The reason they murdered Jeffrey Epstein in prison – oops, they don’t want me to say he was “murdered” – is to ensure he never talk about the Elite’s rampant pedophilia and Satanic sex abuse of children. Yet, this abuse happens every day and some very big names have been implicated. The same occult sex perversions of bygone days are not as bygone as some would like to believe. Yet, this is something they don’t allow you to say without consequences – just ask Ted Gunderson.

They also work hard to conceal the fact that the ironically-named Child Protective Services (CPS) is part of this massive child trafficking, child abusing ring. While there are of course some children who need to be taken out of legitimately dangerous situations, thousands of other children are stolen from innocent, upstanding parents every year – especially Christian and conservative homes – and no one seems to care. Certainly, they don’t protest it since they are the ones behind it and benefiting from it. While you’re living your mundane life and thinking of nothing more than the ball game on ESPN, thousands of children in your country are being kidnapped by “legal” entities and sold into sex slavery and as fodder for ritualistic abuse. They don’t allow a peep of this to enter the mainstream discourse, yet it’s true.

The existence of MK-Ultra, a brutal mind control program led by the CIA, is something they don’t want you talking about. They want you to ignore the mass of documents released within the past year verifying the existence and horrors of MK-Ultra and validating “conspiracy theorists” like Alex Jones. They want to keep you in the dark about things they have, albeit reluctantly, admitted!

The Second Amendment is yet another topic they won’t let you talk freely about without discrediting you. They don’t want you to know that each year guns are used millions of times in self-defense. They don’t want you to know that tyrants throughout history have first disarmed their victims before victimizing them. They don’t want you to learn that total disarmament (i.e. total slavery) is their end goal for us. They don’t allow you to talk about the fact that most shootings occur in gun-free zones where people are disarmed and helpless, as opposed to areas like Montana or Idaho where guns proliferate and make communities safe. They don’t want you to realize that red flag gun confiscation laws are not only dangerous (at least one innocent man, Gary Willis, has already been murdered by police in Maryland after a disgruntled neighbor made a false report about him and cops showed up unannounced to steal his weapons), but are highly illegal and blatantly unconstitutional. They simply don’t let you state the fact that America is one of the safest nations on earth (largely because we have so many firearms) and that their agenda is to disarm and thereby enslave us.

They don’t allow you to learn the history of cancer and that numerous cures have been invented and suppressed. They don’t want you to know names like Royal Rife and Rick Simpson. They don’t want you to research the Biblical Greek word pharmakeia and its implications about modern medicine and drugs. They don’t want you to learn that hemp can cure cancer or that the U.S. government has multiple patents on cannabis because they proved as early as the 1970s that it cures cancerous tumors. They want you to continue to get sick, pay through the nose for expensive and worthless treatments like chemotherapy, and suffer endlessly as you or your loved ones endure an ailment that is highly curable. This is something they don’t allow you to say unless you’re fine with wearing the moniker “conspiracy theorist.”

They also don’t want you to comprehend the vaccination hoax (one of the leading causes of cancer, along with GMO food). It matters not how many doctors find links between vaccines and autism, or that Yale and Harvard have published dozens of studies verifying these links, they will censor you if you try to warn people that injecting themselves with a cocktail of ingredients including mercury, live viruses, aborted fetal cells, formaldehyde, and cancer-causing viruses is a potentially very dangerous thing. The more the rates of autism, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), and vaccine-related injuries rises, the more they and their Big Pharma cohorts yell to drown you out.

Speaking of drowning, according to the “global warming” fear-mongers, civilization should be under water by now. Glacier National Park is quietly removing their “gone by 2020” signs since it’s less than two months from 2020 and, surprise, the glaciers are still here (just like Antarctica’s ice is expanding, the polar bear populations are growing, and the earth has gone through approximately twenty consecutive years of cooling). To fight this non-existent “global warming,” weather manipulation programs have been initiated, such as lacing the sky with reflective particles via what has come to be known as chemtrails. But if you dare say this, they will sear the letter k into your forehead per the ancient Roman practice of branding kalumniators, or false accusers, for all to see.

They also cry “fake!” when you state the truth that America was founded by Christians as a Christian nation. It perturbs them when you quote Thomas Jefferson’s declaration, “I am a real Christian, that is to say, a disciple of the doctrines of Jesus” (Thomas Jefferson to Charles Thomson, January 9, 1816) because it destroys their lie that Jefferson was an atheist or deist. They don’t want you to know that as governor of Virginia, Jefferson used public money to fund Christian churches, donated his own money to a Bible society’s effort to put a Bible in every home in the state, and hand-selected religious hymnals for use in public schools, because it explodes their anti-Christian and very harmful version of “separation of church and state,” a phrase originally used in a far different sense by the avowed Christian Thomas Jefferson. They want you to toe their line and regurgitate the lies they have invented about our humble and good Founding Fathers; and they won’t tolerate dissent without trying to undermine your credibility.

They go out of their way to smear another great American hero – the Indian-fighting, bank-killing, Constitution-supporting Andrew Jackson. They want you to focus on the Trail of Tears (the alleged horrors of which they grossly exaggerate) and ignore the fact that Jackson was the only president to successfully fight off the bankers and destroy their central bank scheme. This same cartel of Elitist financiers and conspirators are the ones promoting the myth that Jackson was an evil, racist demagogue. Yet, facts are facts, and the fact is that President Jackson was a true war hero, the only president in U.S. history to pay off the national debt completely, presided over an era of peace and prosperity, and thwarted the bankers’ malicious plans for America. Jackson’s proudest boast was, “I killed the bank!” We ought to remember him for his great achievements, such as squashing the national bank plot of his day. Yet, if you repeat these historical facts, they lash out and attempt to intimidate you into silence.

fuckyeah

A bust of Abraham Lincoln hanging comfortably between portraits of Lenin and Stalin at a communist rally. Birds of a feather. . .

Your self-censorship is also an object of their Civil War propaganda. Isn’t it curious that they love Abraham Lincoln? I find it very ironic that American “patriots” today lavish praise on Lincoln, a man on whom Karl Marx also heaped praise for aiding his communist world revolution. Lincoln violated the U.S. Constitution six ways to sundown, yet many modern “conservative” icons who claim to love the Constitution think he was grand. Certainly they think he was grand and they hold him up as someone to be replicated. Of course, they also push the false myth that Lincoln’s War was waged to free the slaves, that Lincoln’s clever “Emancipation Proclamation” war propaganda actually freed the slaves, that Lincoln was a man of peace, that the Confederacy was evil and racist, that the modern South is evil and racist, and that secession was not a God-given right. Naturally, they won’t let you use mainstream platforms to spread the truth that Lincoln enslaved tens of thousands of Northerners without cause, suspended the writ of habeus corpus, ripped up the Constitution, imprisoned judges who said he was violating the Constitution, rigged the election of 1864, pardoned war criminals, allowed his generals and troops to rape, pillage, and plunder the South, continued President Buchanan’s unwarranted persecutions against The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and so forth. Now that is something they don’t allow you to say!

The same they who smear patriots like Jackson and Jefferson are the ones smearing President Donald Trump today – the very same they who concocted the laughably absurd stories of Trump-Russia “collusion.” Don’t misunderstand me; I didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 and I won’t be voting for him next year either. He’s the best president in my lifetime, yet he’s also absurdly flawed in too many ways – morally and constitutionally foremost among them – for my conscience to allow me to vote for him. Yet, no matter how flawed a person may be, no one deserves to be unfairly smeared and falsely accused of things they didn’t do, especially while the truly guilty parties go free.

Russiagate10

Is there an American politician in modern memory who has been smeared by the mainstream press as consistently and vilely as President Trump has been? If so, I’m not aware of it. They don’t want you to know that there is zero substance to their “collusion” hoax propaganda a hoax perpetrated by long-time communists and corrupt individuals, it is now known, who were receiving not only fake intelligence, but money, from Russia! Yet, in their deranged paranoia and hatred, they and their myriad of dupes all across the political spectrum repeat their false and baseless accusations in order to destroy the few good things President Trump is trying to do and the confidence Americans have in effecting a political revival. They do not want the American People – those they consider inferior and too stupid to govern themselves without their “enlightened” guidance – getting the idea that they can use their inherent and rightful power to undo their Marxist agenda. Certainly, this is something they do not want you to say!

Finally, they don’t allow you to inform people that there really are more than two choices on election day. They try to paint all third parties as fringe lunatics with a snowball’s chance in hell of winning elections. Yet, what makes a political party “viable”? The only thing that makes a candidate or party viable is the amount of support they get at the polls. I’m here to inform you – though they don’t want me to – that there are a handful of terrific political organizations organizations worthy of your support; namely, the Independent American Party and the Constitution Party. I belong to the former (and ran for the U.S. House of Representatives under the IAP banner in 2014) and have voted for candidates of the latter like Chuck Baldwin and Darrell Castle. I don’t regret a single vote because I understand that a vote for principle is never wasted. This, my friend, is something they cannot tolerate hearing. It is an idea they know could spread across the nation like wildfire and undermine their entire house of cards. Yet it is something We the People simply cannot stop saying if we ever hope to break our shackles and become free again!

There are hundreds of things that they won’t allow you to say without consequences and punishment, either actual or virtual. My list is sufficient to show that the powers-that-be – the global Marxist Establishment – has a stranglehold on the public mind. They control the writing of history, the narrative of current events, and dictate their own warped version of “reality.” The “reality” they promote, however, is a long string of lies, half-truths, and distortions. Not any old lies, but Red lies – lies that only benefit the worldwide communist conspiracy and its abettors.

The ideological progeny of the Illuminati of yesteryear are the communists and socialists of today. The Establishment is working overtime to curtail free speech, discredit truth-tellers, and silence dissent to their Satanic communist dogmas. They are vile and evil; malicious in the extreme. Their intent is to silence you. Right now, they are, with some notable exceptions, attacking us mainly in virtual reality. Soon, however, the real persecutions will begin. Soon, the West will employ a Chinese-style social credit system – the Mark of the Beast. Then, perhaps, you will understand that they really do exist, that they hate you, that their agenda is to destroy your family and enslave you, and that the “controversial” and “hateful” things I’ve written are true. But, hey, you had better just forget everything you’ve read here today, because it is something they don’t want me to say.

Zack Strong,

November 15, 2019.

What I See Coming

This article is my attempt to put into words what I foresee playing out in the United States of America in the future. The future is far from bright, ladies and gentlemen. We are on the precipice of a hellish reality the likes of which we’ve never experienced in this country. We are traveling down a path that leads to a new Dark Ages.

Spiritual, mental, and moral darkness engulf the earth. Our country – once a beacon of light to the world – has been targeted for destruction by our enemies. The consequence is a population that now rejects God, hates itself, allows its Freedom to be chipped away, is ashamed of its noble history, and is willing to be led by the nose by anyone promising free stuff, government welfare, a life without responsibility, or a reprieve from the consequences of sin, criminality, and bad decisions.

As we plunge further into this darkness, we will face vicious civil war, brutal bloodletting, mindless mobocracy, ghastly rapine, large-scale plundering, economic collapse, societal breakdown, rampant immorality, religious persecution, and monstrous tyranny. We are coming apart at the seams. Fires of violent hatred are being stoked by the lords of chaos who seek to divide us in order to conquer us. Even though their Marxist strategies are painfully obvious to anyone with eyes to see, they are effective. We are not finished yet, but our foot is agonizingly ensnared between the piercing teeth of a powerful steel trap.

Some say they would rather a civil war happen now than continue our gradual descent into the abyss. Let those who love Freedom gather and fight the enemy and get it over with, they say. Lock ‘n’ load! I’ll admit that I sometimes feel the exact same way. However, we should not be ignorant of the fact that a new American civil war will not be like Lincoln’s war against the South. It will not be a civil war with opposing camps divided nicely between North and South, between East and West, between the coasts and Middle America, between Republicans and Democrats, or between gun owners and gun-grabbers.

ILLUSTRATION: Divided U.S.

Rather, a new civil war will look more like mobocracy and anarchy. It will ravish each community as brothers fight brothers, families rip each other apart, co-workers turn on one another, church congregations split asunder, police attack police, military units target each other, and everyone distrusts everyone. Law and order will break down and the federal government will essentially lose its power. The judicial system won’t operate properly. The protections of the Constitution will be voided. Mob rule will prevail.

In the midst of our intestine difficulties, it is extremely likely – if not already inevitable – that the communist world will take the opportunity to topple their “Main Enemy” once and for all by launching World War III. Whether a new American civil war will come before a Russian-Chinese assault is anyone’s guess. For many decades, the communists have had contingency plans for numerous scenarios. They are prepared to exploit any given situation to their benefit. This is doubly true when we consider that the communists are the ones primarily behind most of the chaos we see.

As I’ve documented in my books A Century of Red and Red Gadiantons, the communists are behind the cultural division we see everywhere. They either created or hijacked the Civil Rights movement, feminism, LGBT, radical environmentalism, humanism in academia, and so forth. Communism, more than any other ideology, is the greatest threat to our nation and world. It is a Satanic threat that is, despite the propaganda about the “collapse” of the USSR and the “death” of communism, more powerful and prevalent than ever before.

communism213

I highlight only two of the communists’ most successful battlefields in America: Racial politics and feminism. The racial division we see so prominently on the news is a communist invention from start to finish. Black liberation politics are actually Red. The specter of “racism” has been kept alive by communists in order to stir up minorities against whites. Everywhere that you see radical black groups like Black Live Matter and the New Black Panthers demonstrating, rioting, or griping about some phony injustice, you find communist provocateurs whispering in their ears.

“White guilt” is the brainchild of America-hating Marxists. Whites have nothing to be ashamed about. Nothing. In fact, Caucasians are responsible for the greatest political, economic, societal, technological, and military achievements in mankind’s history. Our ancestors ended slavery as an institution. Our forefathers raised the standard of Freedom to an oppressed earth. Yet, we are portrayed as the great villains of the world who need to apologize for our skin color, ancestors, institutions, achievements, and history while bowing down before the throne of Marxist minorities and self-loathing white traitors.

Before the communists infiltrated the black community, blacks actually had a lower crime rate, fewer divorces, and were more religious than whites. They were neat and clean and respectable. However, communists infiltrated their communities and played the victim card and radicalized blacks so profoundly that now they are the most violent, crime-ridden, anti-family, drug-saturated, ghetto-oriented segment of society. They are being duped and used as pawns in the communist game.

racism1

While we are told that whites attack and oppress and hate blacks and other minorities, the reverse is statistically documentable. In his tremendous book Red Badge, retired police officer Doug Traubel goes to great lengths to debunk the media myths about white-on-black “racism” and supposed white-on-black crime and discrimination. The truth is that “over 90 percent of black murder victims nationally are killed by black assailants” (Traubel, Red Badge, 203). In actual fact, police rarely shoot blacks – especially when compared against the staggering number of blacks who attack police. Blacks assault, murder, rob, and rape whites exponentially more than whites attack blacks or any other minority group.

After citing many official crime statistics as well as reports by experts in the field, Traubel concluded that “if there is a War on Black America, it is black murderers who mass-murder other blacks” (Traubel, Red Badge, 205). Yet, the media and officialdom promote their false anti-white narrative in order to stir up hatred, prompt more violence, fuel chaos, and put a hedge of distrust between minorities and whites and between everyone and law enforcement. Police in particular, though they in fact do have a host of legitimate and systemic problems that must be dealt with, are being unjustly depicted as “nothing more than the Klan in blue” (Traubel, Red Badge, 194). It is all a part of the communist scheme to frame and disenfranchise Caucasian America.

Despite being unfairly maligned and smeared by the communists, J. Edgar Hoover was one of the greatest anti-communist crusaders in our history. He understood the Marxist threat and breathlessly warned all who would listen of their strategies for disrupting the peace, stability, and moral essence of our culture and nation. Regarding the communist infiltration of the black community, Hoover noted:

“The Party’s claim that it is working for Negro rights is a deception and a fraud. The Party’s sole interest, as most American Negroes know, is to hoodwink the Negro, to exploit him and use him as a tool to build a communist America” (Hoover, Masters of Deceit, 229).

communism347

Unfortunately, most blacks don’t realize they are being used. Well over 90% of blacks vote Democrat – a party now openly aligned with the Communist Party USA – and thereby support abortion, welfare-statism, indolence, racial identity politics, higher taxes, fewer rights, gun restrictions, government limitations on business, etc. The communist agitators in the black community – people like Van Jones, Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and Nikki Giovanni – are leading their fellow blacks into race-fueled conflict after conflict, hoping to force radical communist change on a weary nation.

The feminist abomination is also a communist creation. I have written and said so much on this aspect of the conspiracy that I won’t repeat it all here. Suffice it to say that feminism was invented to fulfill Karl Marx’s dream of abolishing the family. Only by abolishing the family – the bulwark of the Faith and Freedom of any society – can a nation be fully conquered. Communism is inherently anti-family and promotes feminism in order to break down the institution of marriage and home. They fight against traditional values, the Biblical patriarchal order, and families.

The Soviet Union was the first modern nation to legalize abortion-on-demand as well as no-fault divorce. It is telling that the United States eventually adopted these communist social reforms. The feminists have been the greatest promoters of the Soviet vision of “free love,” infanticide, lax morals, rampant divorce, and broken homes. Ultimately, Bolshevik radical Inessa Armand spoke the truth when she said:

“If women’s liberation is unthinkable without communism, then communism is unthinkable without women’s liberation” (Quoted in Sharon Smith, “Women’s Liberation: The Marxist Tradition,” International Socialist Review, Issue #93, summer, 2014).

Because we have allowed the communist cancer to sap our strength and erode our institutions, we are on the verge of total collapse. We have largely sold our birthright as Americans. We have betrayed the legacy of our forefathers and the very spirit of Americanism. We have adopted a hostile foreign philosophy in everything from economics to government to education to sex to politics. Yet, as Ronald Reagan truthfully stated:

“[T]herein 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” (Ronald Reagan, “A Time for Choosing,” October 24, 1964).

The seductive voices of the American counterculture condemn our Founding Fathers, belittle our tried-and-true principles, rip on our Constitution, target white America, attack our families, undermine our institutions, and foam at the mouth in their ranting against our long-held Christian values. Yet, those voices don’t speak for me. They don’t speak for my family, my parents, or my siblings. They likely don’t speak for you if you are reading this blog. And they don’t speak for millions of good, God-fearing, loyal American patriots who would rather die than live in chains.

Because the two worldviews in question – Christian constitutionalism and Satanic communism – are incompatible, they must fight. “Peaceful coexistence,” a communist slogan designed to disarm their opposition, is not an option. Only one of these opposing ideologies can survive the ongoing death struggle.

Because of prophecy and the divine declarations of the Almighty, we know that Christ has already won the victory. He has vanquished the Devil and conquered the grave. However, though the outcome is already known, the war still rages. You and I may both fall as casualties if we are not careful. Satan plans to drag as many of us down with him as he can. None of us are exempt from his machinations. And certainly no nation is immune to Satan’s devices.

America, the great defender of Liberty in the earth, is the “Main Enemy” of Satan’s system of global tyranny. Because of this, he has concentrated his forces on attacking us. Unfortunately, he has been wildly successful. His minions are preparing to implode our Republic and bring us down into the depths of chaos and internal war, from which they hope to emerge victorious and powerful.

As my regular readers know, I am a proud member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I recently bore my personal witness of Christ which you can read here. Because of my testimony of the truth, I see the future through the lens of prophecy. It has been said that “Prophecy is but history in reverse—a divine disclosure of future events” (Ezra Taft Benson, “Prepare Ye,” Ensign, January, 1974). And so it is. Scriptural prophecy is the most accurate source of information you can find regarding current events.

I also examine the past in order to see where our steps are taking us. In his hallmark “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death” speech, Patrick Henry rightly stated: “I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past.” With prophecy and the record of history, we can see through the smokescreens thrown up to blind our eyes and conceal the reality.

Judging from prophecy and from historical experience, it is easy to see where humanity is heading. There is absolutely no mystery about it – the Lord and His prophets have told us precisely what to expect. The only problem is that people do not want to think about terrible things. They do not want to contemplate “the worst” that can happen. Yet, it is precisely this reluctance to face reality and our own failings that makes prophecy come true.

The mortal Messiah foretold that in the day before His triumphant return as King of kings and Lord of lords – a day that draws ever nearer– things shall be “as the days of Noe [Noah] were” (Matthew 24:37). The people at the time of Noah were so wicked and rebellious that, in His mercy toward an innocent generation of His children being raised without a chance for righteousness, the Lord cleansed humanity by means of a flood. Genesis 6:5 tells us that in Noah’s day: “God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of his heart was only evil continually.” Today, it seems that sanity has fled and people run back and forth in mindless rebellion against everything just, holy, good, and true. In my estimation, we have collectively reached, if not surpassed, the same level of wickedness that prevailed in Noah’s day.

The epitome of child abuse

Satan is running rampant in our society and throughout the world. He is gathering and coordinating his forces. Everywhere you look, they are combining against Christians and anyone who opposes the communist system he is seeking to set up globally. These things are only a prelude to the final push Satan has planned – the push that will topple Faith, Families, and Freedom once and for all and usher in an Anti-Christ system with himself at the head.

A modern revelation given through the Prophet Joseph Smith foretells of the horrors that await us unless we repent and turn our hearts back to the Savior. The warning speaks of the time just before the coming of the Lord – our time. It prophesies:

“But, behold, I say unto you that before this great day shall come the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall be turned into blood, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and there shall be greater signs in heaven above and in the earth beneath;

“And there shall be weeping and wailing among the hosts of men;

“And there shall be a great hailstorm sent forth to destroy the crops of the earth.

“And it shall come to pass, because of the wickedness of the world, that I will take vengeance upon the wicked, for they will not repent; for the cup of mine indignation is full; for behold, my blood shall not cleanse them if they hear me not.

“Wherefore, I the Lord God will send forth flies upon the face of the earth, which shall take hold of the inhabitants thereof, and shall eat their flesh, and shall cause maggots to come in upon them;

“And their tongues shall be stayed that they shall not utter against me; and their flesh shall fall from off their bones, and their eyes from their sockets;

“And it shall come to pass that the beasts of the forest and the fowls of the air shall devour them up.

“And the great and abominable church, which is the whore of all the earth, shall be cast down by devouring fire, according as it is spoken by the mouth of Ezekiel the prophet, who spoke of these things, which have not come to pass but surely must, as I live, for abominations shall not reign” (Doctrine and Covenants 29:14-21).

America84

Those familiar with Biblical prophecy notice the stark similarities between this revelation and the warnings found in the books of Matthew, Revelation Ezekiel, Joel, and elsewhere. The Lord has warned us repeatedly that we are approaching a day of cataclysm that can only be avoided by sincere repentance. In Noah’s day, the Lord gave the people a chance to repent after hearing Noah’s prophecy of impending doom before He sent the rain. Today, we have also been warned and there is time remaining to repent. Yet, like in Noah’s, we are rejecting the Lord’s warnings and pleadings. And like in Noah’s day, the results will be catastrophic unless we wake up and reform. The Lord has promised, however, that “if ye are prepared ye shall not fear” (Doctrine and Covenants 38:30).

The Lord has given us so much prophecy about our day precisely because He doesn’t want to chastise and punish us. He loves us and wants us to choose to be righteous. Only through a course of righteousness can we avoid destruction. Our Founding Fathers understood the correlation between wickedness and destruction and contributed their warning voices. On the eve of the American Revolution, John Witherspoon cautioned:

“Nothing is more certain than that a general profligacy and corruption of manners make a people ripe for destruction. A good form of government may hold the rotten materials together for some time, but beyond a certain pitch, even the best constitution will be ineffectual, and slavery must ensue. On the other hand, when the manners of a nation are pure, when true religion and internal principles maintain their vigor, the attempts of the most powerful enemies to oppress them are commonly baffled and disappointed” (John Witherspoon, “The Dominion of Providence over the Passions of Man,” May 17, 1776).

Our enemies also understand this reality. They have worked hard to corrupt our morals, undermine our faith, and sever us from all that is good, holy, just, correct, and full of light. They understand that war and conflict have the ability to transform a society and corrupt a nation’s morals faster and more completely than any other thing. They have therefore devoted much of their strength to luring us into foreign wars and pushing us to the brink of civil war domestically.

In 1963, Ezra Taft Benson warned of some of the possible scenarios for the communist conquest of America. They are still valid today. Notice the emphasis on war and internal conflict:

“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 war 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.

“The whole slogan of “civil rights” as used to make trouble in the South today, is an exact parallel to the slogan of “Agrarian reform” which they used in China. The pending “civil rights” legislation is, I am convinced, about 10% civil rights and about 90% a further extension of socialistic Federal controls. It is part of the pattern for the Communist takeover of America. The whole “civil rights” program and slogan in America today is just as phony as were the “Agrarian reform” program and slogan of the Communists in China 20 years ago” (Ezra Taft Benson, “We Must Become Alerted and Informed,” speech, December 13, 1963, in Jerreld Newquist, ed., Prophets, Principles and National Survival, 271-272).

America73

We have already covered the race war that Marxists are attempting to foment. Whether race, the depreciation of our currency, gender, an attempt to confiscate firearms, or some other factor is the impetus, I am confident that the communists will attempt to trigger a civil war in America. This war might coincide with a surprise strike by Russia and China or it might precede such a strike and serve as a softening up measure. But either way, we are looking at a future fraught with chaos and literal war in our streets.

The communists are so embedded in our society, and they have done such a fine job of indoctrinating so many millions of Americans, that I believe civil war is inevitable. This is so because we have lost much of our precious Liberty and Liberty is only regained through bloodshed. However, the extent and scope of that war is ours to decide. If we work hard now and rally enough people to the standard of Liberty, the war might be limited to a short duration or might not affect our location very noticeably. If we remain complacent and do not adequately prepare ourselves, however, we might consign ourselves to years of bloodshed, rapine, lunacy, rage, and anguish. And the longer a war of this type rages, the more likely is our defeat as the anger, hatred, and harsh feelings of loss harden our hearts and blind our minds.

In his book Civil War Two: The Coming Breakup of America, Thomas W. Chittum warned of much the same outcome if we remain on the same path we are currently walking:

“America was born in blood. America suckled on blood. America gorged on blood and grew into a giant, and America will drown in blood. This is the spectre that is haunting America, the spectre of Civil War II, a second civil war that will shatter America into several new ethnically-based nations . . . Simply and directly put, America will explode in tribal warfare in our lifetime. . . . Bands of guerrillas will stalk about the countryside – raping, looting, murdering, clashing with each other.

“. . . Civil War II in America will set off a super depression that will plunge the entire globe into economic chaos, which will further deepen the economic collapse here in America.

“Food production will all but cease. The hungry will fight to the death over scraps of garbage. Millions will starve, and millions more will die from infectious diseases. Behold the vision of Civil War II.

“. . . Depending on the scope and duration of Civil War II, tens of millions could perish in a mass starvation unprecedented since the beginning of time. Millions more will die of disease due to immune systems weakened by lack of food. The very old and children will die off first. Soldiers, the most valuable and most heavily-armed portion of the population, will suffer the least.

“. . . Western Civilization will be transformed; tribalism will blossom into its ultimate expression. . . . And what excuse will we American have? . . . that no one cautioned us that a house divided against itself cannot stand?” (Thomas W. Chittum, in David N. Balmforth, America’s Coming Crisis: Prophetic Warnings, Divine Destiny, 73-74).

A frightful picture, to be sure; but an accurate one nonetheless. If we don’t want to suffer through the depravity and pain of a gruesome civil war, we must heed the warnings of history and the voices of those who are now mocked as “conspiracy theorists” and “right-wing wackos.” We must prepare by getting a substantial food storage (I recommend a one-year supply) and storing up necessary supplies, by learning necessary skills, by relocating to safer locations (the Intermountain West ought to be #1 on your list), and by getting right with God.

The Book of Mormon – a book of scripture similar to the Bible that also testifies of the divinity and mission of Jesus Christ – tells the history of two civilizations that inhabited ancient America. One of these, the Nephites, possessed a government that, like our American system, operated on the twin principles of rule of law and the voice of the people. About 2,000 years ago, the Nephite nation was rocked by internal strife as a group of elitist judges, lawyers, high priests, and people seeking power over their countrymen, assassinated the chief governor of the land and overthrew the government. This incident provides a case study for how a civil war might play out in modern America.

The enemy in this story was a vile group of conspirators who, the scripture tells us, were “the friends and kindreds of those who murdered the prophets” (3 Nephi 7:6). They “did combine against the people of the Lord, and enter into a covenant to destroy them” (3 Nephi 6:29). They also “did set at defiance the law and the rights of their country; and they did covenant one with another to destroy the governor, and to establish a king over the land, that the land should no more be at liberty but should be subject unto kings” (3 Nephi 6:30). In accordance with their plan, “they did destroy upon the judgement-seat, yea, did murder the chief judge of the land” (3 Nephi 7:1).

This brazen assassination of the duly-elected leader set in motion a chain of tragic events. We are informed that because of this event:

“the people were divided one against another; and they did separate one from another into tribes, every man according to his family and his kindred and friends’ and thus they did destroy the government of the land.

“And every tribe did appoint a chief of a leader over them; and thus they became tribes and leaders of tribes. . . .

“. . . and all this iniquity had come upon the people because they did yield themselves unto the power of Satan.

“And the regulations of the government were destroyed, because of the secret combination of the friends and kindreds of those who murdered the prophets. . . .

“Now this secret combination, which has brought so great iniquity upon the people, did gather themselves together, and did place at their head a man whom they did call Jacob;

“And they did call him their king; therefore he became a king over this wicked band; and he was one of the chiefest who had given his voice against the prophets who testified of Jesus.

“And it came to pass that they were not so strong in number as the tribes of the people, who were united together save it were their leaders did establish their laws, every one according to his tribe; nevertheless they were enemies; notwithstanding they were not a righteous people, yet they were united in the hatred of those who had entered into a covenant to destroy the government.” (3 Nephi 7:2-3, 5-6, 9-11).

America80

America today is exhibiting a very similar tribalistic spirit. We see this tribalism every day. Republicans are combined against Democrats, Democrats are combined against Republicans – and neither side wants to cooperate with the other. Entire neighborhoods in the inner cities are black or Hispanic or Chinese or Jewish and don’t welcome whites or outsiders. Gangs control entire swaths of territory and police are even afraid to enter at times. Police have adopted an “us vs them” attitude toward civilians and many of us resent them for treating us like insurgents in some warzone. Antifa thugs are arming and gathering to fight against so-called “fascists” and “Nazis” (i.e. dyed-in-the-wool American patriots).

Militias are on the rise, with many creating outposts and retreats in the woods and actively preparing for conflict (I encourage this, but it is symptomatic of the tribal mentality I’m speaking of). Enclaves of like-minded folks – very similar to tribes – are forming in Montana, Idaho, Utah, and in states throughout the Union. Liberals flock to L.A., New York City, Chicago, Baltimore, and major metropolitan centers while conservatives and sane people flee the cities and gather in rural areas. Rich people are building or buying bunkers. Gated communities are proliferating. Everywhere you look, division and tribal attitudes dominate.

In a future American civil war, I do not see a clear-cut, two-sided “us vs them” conflict. Rather, I predict a “me vs everyone” outlook. It will be mobocracy in its rawest form. When law and order break down, people will naturally gather with like-minded people. Again, people might form a group, or tribe, based on political persuasion, religious beliefs, survivability (i.e. he has the guns, let’s join with him or they have food, we’ll stick with them), family ties, sexual orientation, gender, geographical considerations, etc. People who imagine a second American Revolution of the People against the tyrannical Elite are fooling themselves.

war8

An eventual war in this country will look similar to the Nephite conflict recounted above. When the government goes down – whether through an assassination, the start of a war, a coup attempt, or whatever the cause – people will immediately form tribes. If not for conscious reasons, people will gather in like-minded groups just to survive. Tribal gangs will roam the nation fighting each other.

I predict that many, if not most, of these tribal groups will be “united in the hatred of those who had entered into a covenant to destroy the government.” The truth is so obvious that you have to be willfully ignorant to not know that secret combinations or conspiracies exist within our society. Most people realize that there are sick people in our government. They might not recognize who they are or exactly how they operate, but they know that some invisible hand is pulling strings, lies, covering up scandals, perpetrating murder, stealing our wealth, trying to pervert our culture, and attempting to dictate how we run our daily lives. Many people resent this and would assume hang the perpetrators if they knew who they were or felt they had popular support.

In a recent article titled “Our Ruling Elites Have No Idea How Much We Want to See Them All in Prison Jumpsuits,” Charles Hugh Smith observed:

“The one issue that could unite the fragmented citizenry is moral revulsion: As the Epstein [sex trafficking/abuse] case promises to reveal, there is literally no limit on the excesses and exploitations of the privileged few in America, no limit on what our Ruling Elites can do with absolute impunity.

“The Nobility of the feudal era had some reciprocal obligation to its serfs; our New Nobility has no obligation to anyone but themselves. It is painfully obvious that there are two sets of laws in America: bankers can rip off billions and never serve time, and members of the Protected Class who sexually exploit children get a wrist-slap, if that. . . .

“Our Ruling Elites have no idea how many of us already want to see them all in prison jumpsuits, and they also have no idea how fast the moral revulsion with their corrupt “leadership” might spread. Scanning the distracted, consumerist rabble from the great heights of their wealth and power, they reckon the capacity for moral outrage is limited, leaving them safe from any domestic crusade.

“They also trust that the citizenry can be further fragmented, further distracted, and so they will continue to be invulnerable. Or worst case scenario, a few especially venal villains will need to be sacrificed, and then all will return to the bliss of Neofeudal exploitation.

“But they may have misread the American citizenry, just as they’ve misread history.”

war11

The scenario described by Smith is eerily similar to the history recounted in The Book of Mormon account cited. The people, distracted and wicked as they were, nonetheless hated the Elite who had corrupted the government and overthrown the stability of the land. Might it not be the same today? I believe that when the crap hits the fan, many millions of Americans will resist the tyranny of the ruling Elite and say “no more.” We will almost certainly split into tribes for a period of time in the wake of a major national cataclysm, but the tribes will likely share a “moral revulsion” of the corrupt statists in Washington and their state capitols.

The lessons of history and the warnings of prophecy ought to jolt us awake. We should be propelled into action by the urgency of our situation, if not by our inborn love of truth and Liberty. We are asleep and apathetic, distracted and divided, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Yes, we have lost many of our Liberties that only blood can purchase anew, but there are still many otherwise good people who have not thrown their hats into the ring who can help us tip the balance. We must reach these individuals and win them to our side by the superiority of our ideas and message and by inspiring them with the stories and slogans of our noble ancestors who gave their all for Freedom. It does not take a majority to win, only an “irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men” (quote often attributed to Samuel Adams).

For millennia, the Lord has warned us of what would transpire in our day. His prophets down through the ages have described our time of turmoil and how to endure it. The advent of modern communism and its horrific and unparalleled history of plunder, militarism, rapine, slaughter, slavery, genocide, and hate ought to convince of us of the truthfulness of the Lord’s message. In 1942, a group of spiritual leaders I know to be inspired warned society that they were following Satan down the path of destruction. They admonished:

“Infidelity, atheism, unchastity, intemperance, civil corruption, greed, avarice, ambition – personal, political, national – are more powerful today than at any other time in the lives of us now living. They are pulling and thrusting us almost at will into new fields of action, new lines of thought. They are shaking the faith, undermining the morals, polluting the lives of the people. They have thrown many so far off balance in all of their activities, economic, social, political, and religious, that they stand in real danger of falling. Satan is making war against all the wisdom that has come to men through their ages of experience. He is seeking to overturn and destroy the very foundations upon which society, government, and religion rest. He aims to have men adopt theories and practices which he induced their forefathers, over the ages, to adopt and try, only to be discarded by them when found unsound, impractical, and ruinous. He plans to destroy liberty and freedom – economic, political, and religious, and to set up in place thereof the greatest, most widespread, and most complete tyranny that has ever oppressed men. He is working under such perfect disguise that many do not recognize either him or his methods. There is no crime he would not commit, no debauchery he would not set up, no plague he would not send, no heart he would not break, no life he would not take, no soul he would not destroy. He comes as a thief in the night; he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Without their knowing it, the people are being urged down paths that lead only to destruction. Satan never before had so firm a grip on this generation as he has now” (First Presidency message, Conference Report, October, 1942, 13).

Yes, we have been warned time and time and time again. If we continue to allow Satan and his earthly followers to twist our minds and pervert our souls, there is nothing vile and dreadful they won’t persuade us to do. There is no war, plague, controversy, scandal, or lie they would not inspire against us. If we don’t finally recognize that the Satanic communists are the greatest threat we face, we will continue to travel down the road of violence, hatred, and conflict until we finally tear each other apart in a fratricidal war unlike anything the world has seen.

war13

Ezra Taft Benson reminded of the high stakes of this titanic struggle:

“Let’s get one thing straight at the very beginning. International communism is the self-avowed enemy of every loyal American. It has declared war against us and fully intends to win. The war in which we are engaged is total. Although its main battlefields are psychological, political and economic, it also encompasses revolution, violence, terror and limited military skirmishes. If we should lose this war, the conquering enemy’s wrath against our people and our institutions will result in one of the greatest blood-baths of all history. Call it a “cold war” if it makes you feel better, but our freedom and our very lives are the stakes of this contest” (Ezra Taft Benson, An Enemy Hath Done This, 165).

This total war will likely one day include civil war and widespread mobocracy. If we are not prepared for this eventuality, we will be paralyzed by fear. If we have not gathered a food storage and supply basic necessities, relocated to a safer area, prepared contingency plans for disasters both natural and man-made, informed ourselves about the threats, learned crucial survival skills, and got cleared our consciences before God, we will be totally unprepared when war knocks on our door.

The things I have described above – the brooding tribalism, violence, plagues, and war – are only a taste of the horrific future I see because we have rejected our God and His commandments and have allowed Satan to win over our hearts and erect a system of tyranny above us. I raise my warning voice, though it might only reach a few receptive ears, against Satanic communism and in favor of Christian constitutionalism. I warn of impending world war and internal conflict in America, the greatest nation on earth. I warn that though we still have a handful of years to prepare before the full fury of the storm sweeps down upon us, and that we ought to dismiss those who claim collapse is “imminent,” the time is drawing short.

I warn that Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Mexico, and their allies, are preparing to take advantage of whatever chaotic situation might arise – or that they might be able to foment – here in America. I warn that Marxist agents are at work in every major city in our Republic fomenting discord, riling up minorities against whites, deceiving women with feminist slogans, scaring gullible people with baseless “climate change” fear-mongering, making false accusations of “sexism,” “racism,” “chauvinism,” “homophobia,” “toxic masculinity,” “white supremacy,” and “Nazism” against faithful American patriots and anti-communists, and doing everything they can to spark a blaze of hate that can be fanned into an inferno that they hope ends with them in power.

Contrary to what some may think of me, I really don’t want to spend my time focusing on these dark and troubling issues. I would prefer to spend my time creating, not criticizing; uplifting, not warning of the destruction of my homeland. Yet, I must waste and wear out my life in this cause because I know it is right, just, and true. I love my country, I love my family, and I love my God-given rights. I cannot stand by as an idle spectator as my enemies try to take each of them away from me and reduce me and my loved ones to slavery. Any man that would do that is not worthy the title of man.

The Prophet Joseph Smith once had a vision of America’s future wherein he “saw men hunting the lives of their own sons, and brother murdering brother, women killing their own daughters, and daughters seeking the lives of their mothers. I saw blood, desolation, fires. The Son of Man has said that the mother shall be against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother. These things are at our doors. They will follow the Saints of God from city to city. Satan will rage, and the spirit of the devil is now enraged. I know now how soon these things will take place; but with a view of them, shall I cry peace? No; I will lift up my voice and testify of them” (Joseph Smith, July 2, 1839).

Make no mistake – I know our side wins the war. I have no doubt about that. However, I want to avoid as much bloodshed and suffering as possible on our march to victory. We have lost much ground through years of apathy and inattentiveness, so it will be an uphill struggle and all true patriots and Christians will be tested to the max.

Those of us who are awake have a responsibility to shake our countrymen out of their deep slumber. This one task will require all our efforts, talents, and perseverance. It is not easy to break through decades of programming and conditioning. As daunting as this sounds, many of us will likely be forced to fight for what we love just like the Sons of Liberty were forced to wield their muskets in defense of their country. It is my hope that we will remember what hangs in the balance – our Faith, Families, and Freedom – and exert ourselves like real men. If we seek the blessings of a free country enjoyed by Washington, Jefferson, Madison, and their fellows, we must be prepared to make the same sacrifices they made.

With a view of the hell gathering on the horizon, nothing should ever cause us to let up, back down, or surrender. Too much is at stake. If you do your job as a patriot correctly, you will be persecuted and face opposition. But if you do your job as a patriot correctly, you will also reap an eternal reward and your name will be venerated down through the generations of time; and you might just save your country.
