The TRUTH About The Confederacy FROM The Confederacy

I work at a Walmart Super Center. I see a lot of people on a daily basis.

Lately, as if there’s a trend, there have been a great deal of folk, men and women of all ages, coming in proudly wearing The Confederate flag. Some with ridiculous messages, aka lies, about the Confederate flag like “It’s not about hate- It’s Heritage.” Yeah, a heritage of hate, bigotry, racism, and slavery.

I’ve not said a peep…til now.

Last week an 18 year old boy sporting the Confederate flag T-shirt with the message:

“If this flag offends you-

Then read your history.”

My blood boiled. I KNOW history.

REAL history.

NOT the revisionist, got-it-all-backwards “history” that they’ve been pushing in the Public “Skules” since at least the 1950’s.

So here’s REAL History. Directly FROM The Confederate State’s own Letters of Secession and other Confederate publications.

====================

Confronting Civil War Revisionism:
Why the South Went To War

 

The rewriting of history in any area is possible only if: (1) the public does not know enough about specific events to object when a wrong view is introduced; or (2) the discovery of previously unknown historical material brings to light new facts that require a correction of the previous view. However, historical revisionism – the rewriting “of an accepted, usually long-standing view… especially a revision of historical events and movements” 1 – is successful only through the first means.

Over the past sixty years, many groups, exploiting a general lack of public knowledge about particular movements or events, have urged upon the public various revisionist views in order to justify their particular agenda. For example, those who use activist courts to advance policies they are unable to pass through the normal legislative process defend judicial abuse by asserting three historically unfounded doctrines: (1) the judiciary is to protect the minority from the majority; (2) the judiciary exists to review and correct the acts of elective bodies; and (3) the judiciary is best equipped to “evolve” the culture to the needs of an ever-changing society. These claims are directly refuted by original constitutional writings, especially The Federalist Papers. (See also the WallBuilders’ book, Restraining Judicial Activism.)

Likewise, those who pursue a secular public square seek to justify their agenda by asserting that the Founding Fathers: (1) were atheists, agnostics, and deists, and (2) wrote into the Constitution a strict separation of church and state requiring the exclusion of religious expressions from the public arena. These claims are also easily rebuttable through the Founders’ own writings and public acts. (See also the WallBuilders’ book, Original Intent.)

A third example of historical revisionism involves the claim that the 1860-1861 secession of the Southern States which caused the Civil War was not a result of the slavery issue but rather of oppressive federal economic policies. For example, a plaque in the Texas State Capitol declares:

confronting-civil-war-revisionism-why-the-south-went-to-war

Because we desire to perpetuate, in love and honor, the heroic deeds of those who enlisted in the Confederate Army and upheld its flag through four years of war, we, the children of the South, have united together in an organization called “Children of the Confederacy,” in which our strength, enthusiasm, and love of justice can exert its influence. We therefore pledge ourselves to preserve pure ideals; to honor our veterans; to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is that the war between the states was not a rebellion nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery), and to always act in a manner that will reflect honor upon our noble and patriotic ancestors. (emphasis added)

Other sources make the same false claim, 2 but four notable categories of Confederate records disprove these claims and indisputably show that the South’s desire to preserve slavery was indisputably the driving reason for the formation of the Confederacy.

1. Southern Secession Documents

From December 1860 through August 1861, the southern states met individually in their respective state conventions to decide whether to secede from the Union. On December 20, 1860, South Carolina became the first state to decide in the affirmative, and its secession document repeatedly declared that it was leaving the Union to preserve slavery:

[A]n increasing hostility on the part of the non-slaveholding [i.e., northern] states to the institution of slavery has led to a disregard of their obligations. . . . [T]hey have denounced as sinful the institution of slavery. . . . They have encouraged and assisted thousands of our slaves to leave their homes [through the Underground Railroad]. . . . A geographical line has been drawn across the Union, and all the states north of that line have united in the election of a man to the high office of President of the United States [Abraham Lincoln] whose opinions and purposes are hostile to slavery. He is to be entrusted with the administration of the common government because he has declared that “Government cannot endure permanently half slave, half free,” and that the public mind must rest in the belief that slavery is in the course of ultimate extinction. . . . The slaveholding states will no longer have the power of self-government or self-protection [over the issue of slavery] . . . 3

Following its secession, South Carolina requested the other southern states to join them in forming a southern Confederacy, explaining:

We . . . [are] dissolving a union with non-slaveholding confederates and seeking a confederation with slaveholding states. Experience has proved that slaveholding states cannot be safe in subjection to non-slaveholding states. . . . The people of the North have not left us in doubt as to their designs and policy. United as a section in the late presidential election, they have elected as the exponent of their policy one [Abraham Lincoln] who has openly declared that all the states of the United States must be made Free States or Slave States. . . . In spite of all disclaimers and professions [i.e., measures such as the Corwin Amendment, written to assure the southern states that Congress would not abolish slavery], there can be but one end by the submission by the South to the rule of a sectional anti-slavery government at Washington; and that end, directly or indirectly, must be the emancipation of the slaves of the South. . . . The people of the non-slaveholding North are not, and cannot be safe associates of the slaveholding South under a common government. . . . Citizens of the slaveholding states of the United States! . . . South Carolina desires no destiny separate from yours. . . . We ask you to join us in forming a Confederacy of Slaveholding States. 4

On January 9, 1861, Mississippi became the second state to secede, announcing:

Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery – the greatest material interest of the world. . . . [A] blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization. That blow has been long aimed at the institution and was at the point of reaching its consummation. There was no choice left us but submission to the mandates of abolition or a dissolution of the Union, whose principles had been subverted to work out our ruin. That we do not overstate the dangers to our institution [slavery], a reference to a few facts will sufficiently prove. The hostility to this institution commenced before the adoption of the Constitution and was manifested in the well-known Ordinance of 1787. [On July 13, 1787, when the nation still governed itself under the Articles of Confederation, the Continental Congress passed the Northwest Ordinance (which Mississippi here calls the “well-known Ordinance of 1787”). That Ordinance set forth provisions whereby the Northwest Territory could become states in the United States, and eventually the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota were formed from that Territory. As a requirement for statehood and entry into the United States, Article 6 of that Ordinance stipulated: “There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the said territory.”
When the Constitution replaced the Articles of Confederation, the Founding Fathers re-passed the “Northwest Ordinance” to ensure its continued effectiveness under the new Constitution. Signed into law by President George Washington on August 7, 1789, it retained the prohibition against slavery.
As more territory was gradually ceded to the United States (the Southern Territory – Mississippi and Alabama; the Missouri Territory – Missouri and Arkansas; etc.), Congress applied the requirements of the Ordinance to those new territories. Mississippi had originally entered the United States under the requirement that it not allow slavery, and it is here objecting not only to that requirement of its own admission to the United States but also to that requirement for the admission of other states.]. . . It has grown until it denies the right of property in slaves and refuses protection to that right on the high seas [Congress banned the importation of slaves into America in 1808], in the territories [in the Northwest Ordinance of 1789, the Missouri Compromise of 1820, the Compromise of 1850, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854], and wherever the government of the United States had jurisdiction. . . . It advocates Negro equality, socially and politically. . . . We must either submit to degradation and to the loss of property [i.e., slaves] worth four billions of money, or we must secede from the Union framed by our fathers to secure this as well as every other species of property. 5

(Notice that the Union’s claim that blacks and whites were equal both “socially and politically” was a claim too offensive for southern Democrat states to tolerate.)

Following its secession, Mississippi sent Fulton Anderson to the Virginia secession convention, where he told its delegates that Mississippi had seceded because they had unanimously approved a document “setting forth the grievances of the Southern people on the slavery question.” 6

On January 10, 1861, Florida became the third state to secede. In its preliminary resolutions setting forth reasons for secession, it acknowledged:

All hope of preserving the Union upon terms consistent with the safety and honor of the Slaveholding States has been finally dissipated by the recent indications of the strength of the anti-slavery sentiment in the Free States. 7

On January 11, 1861, Alabama became the fourth state to secede. Like the three states before her, Alabama’s document cited slavery; and it also cited the 1860 election victory of the Republicans as a further reason for secession, specifically condemning . . .

. . . the election of Abraham Lincoln and Hannibal Hamlin to the offices of President and Vice-President of the United States of America by a sectional party [the Republicans], avowedly hostile to the domestic institutions [slavery] and to the peace and security of the people of the State of Alabama . . . 8

Georgia similarly invoked the 1860 Republican victory as a cause for secession, explaining:

A brief history of the rise, progress, and policy of anti-slavery and the political organization into whose hands the administration of the federal government has been committed [i.e., the Republican Party] will fully justify the pronounced verdict of the people of Georgia [in favor of secession]. The party of Lincoln, called the Republican Party under its present name and organization, is of recent origin. It is admitted to be an anti-slavery party. . . . The prohibition of slavery in the territories, hostility to it everywhere, the equality of the black and white races, disregard of all constitutional guarantees in its favor, were boldly proclaimed by its [Republican] leaders and applauded by its followers. . . . [T]he abolitionists and their allies in the northern states have been engaged in constant efforts to subvert our institutions [i.e., slavery]. 9

Why was the Republican election victory a cause for secession? Because the Republican Party had been formed in May of 1854 on the almost singular issue of opposition to slavery (see WallBuilders’ work, American History in Black and White). Only six years later (in the election of 1860), voters gave Republicans control of the federal government, awarding them the presidency, the House, and the Senate.

The Republican agenda was clear, for every platform since its inception had boldly denounced slavery. In fact, when the U. S. Supreme Court delivered the 1857 Dred Scott ruling protecting slavery and declaring that Congress could not prohibit it even in federal territories, 10 the Republican platform strongly condemned that ruling and reaffirmed the right of Congress to ban slavery in the territories. 11 But setting forth an opposite view, the Democrat platform praised the Dred Scott ruling 12 and the continuation of slavery 13 and also loudly denounced all anti-slavery and abolition efforts. 14

The antagonistic position between the two parties over the slavery issue was clear; so when voters gave Republicans control of the federal government in 1860, southern slave-holding Democrat states saw the proverbial “handwriting on the wall” and promptly left the United States before Republicans could make good on their anti-slavery promises. It was for this reason that so many of the seceded states referenced the Republican victory in their secession documents.

It was not just southern Democrats who viewed the election of Lincoln and the Republicans as the death knell for slavery; many northern Democrats held the same view. In fact, New York City Democrat Mayor Fernando Wood not only attacked the Republican position on slavery but he also urged New York City to join with the South and secede, explaining:

With our aggrieved brethren of the Slave States, we have friendly relations and a common sympathy. We have not participated in the warfare upon their constitutional rights [of slaveholding] or their domestic institutions [slavery]. . . . It is certain that a dissolution [secession of the State of New York from the Union] cannot be peacefully accomplished except by the consent of the [Republican New York] Legislature itself. . . . [and] it is not probable that a partisan [Republican] majority will consent to a separation. . . . [So] why should not New York City, instead of supporting by her contributions in revenue two-thirds of the expenses of the United States, become also equally independent [i.e., secede]? . . . In this she would have the whole and united support of the southern states. 15

Other northern Democrats also assailed the anti-slavery positions of the Republicans – including Samuel Tilden (a New York state assemblyman and later the chair of the state Democrat Party, state governor, and then presidential candidate). Tilden affirmed that southern secession be could halted only if Republicans publicly abandoned their anti-slavery positions:

[T]he southern states will not by any possibility accept the avowed creed of the Republican Party as the permanent policy of the federative government as to slavery. . . . Nothing short of the recession [drawing back] of the Republican Party to the point of total and absolute non-action on the subject of slavery in the states and territories could enable it to reconcile to itself the people of the South. 16

Even the editorial page of the New York World endorsed the Democrats’ pro-slavery positions and condemned Republicans:

We cannot ask the South – we will not ask anybody – to live contentedly under a government . . . which burdens white men with oppressive debt and grinding taxation to try an unconstitutional experiment of giving freedom to Negroes. . . . A proposal for an abolition peace can never gain a hearing in the South. If the Abolition Party [Republicans] continues in power, the separation is final, [both] in feeling and in fact. 17

However, returning to an examination of southern secession documents, on January 19, 1861, Georgia became the fifth state to secede. Georgia then dispatched Henry Benning to Virginia to encourage its secession. At the Virginia convention, Benning explained to the delegates:

What was the reason that induced George to take the step of secession? That reason may be summed up in one single proposition: it was a conviction – a deep conviction on the part of Georgia – that a separation from the North was the only thing that could prevent the abolition of her slavery. This conviction was the main cause. 18

On January 26, 1861, Louisiana became the sixth state to secede. Days later, Texas was scheduled to hold its secession convention, and Louisiana sent Commissioner George Williamson to urge Texas to secede. Williamson told the Texas delegates:

Louisiana looks to the formation of a Southern Confederacy to preserve the blessings of African slavery. . . . Louisiana and Texas have the same language, laws, and institutions. . . . and they are both so deeply interested in African slavery that it may be said to be absolutely necessary to their existence and is the keystone to the arch of their prosperity. . . . The people of Louisiana would consider it a most fatal blow to African slavery if Texas either did not secede or, having seceded, should not join her destinies to theirs in a Southern Confederacy. . . . As a separate republic, Louisiana remembers too well the whisperings of European diplomacy for the abolition of slavery in the times of annexation [Great Britain abolished slavery in 1833; by 1843, southern statesmen were alleging – without evidence – that Great Britain was involved in a plot to abolish slavery in America. Southern voices therefore called for the immediate annexation of pro-slavery Texas into the United States in order to increase pro-slavery territory, but anti-slavery leaders in Congress – including John Quincy Adams and Daniel Webster – opposed that annexation. Their opposition was initially successful; and in his diary entry for June 10 & 17, 1844, John Quincy Adams enthused: “The vote in the United States Senate on the question of [admitting Texas] was, yeas, 16; nays, 35. I record this vote as a deliverance, I trust, by the special interposition of Almighty God. . . . The first shock of slave democracy is over. Moloch [a pagan god requiring human sacrifices] and Mammon [the god of riches] have sunk into momentary slumber. The Texas treason is blasted for the hour.” That victory, however, was only temporary; in 1845, Texas was eventually admitted as a slaveholding state.] not to be apprehensive of bolder demonstrations from the same quarter and the North in this country. The people of the slaveholding states are bound together by the same necessity and determination to preserve African slavery. The isolation of any one of them from the others would make her a theatre for abolition emissaries from the North and from Europe. Her existence would be one of constant peril to herself and of imminent danger to other neighboring slave-holding communities. . . . and taking it as the basis of our new government, we hope to form a slave-holding confederacy . . . 19

Williamson’s encouragement to the Texans turned out to be unnecessary, for on February 1, 1861, even before he arrived from Louisiana, Texas had already become the seventh state to secede. In its secession document, Texas announced:

[Texas] was received as a commonwealth, holding, maintaining, and protecting the institution known as Negro slavery – the servitude of the African to the white race within [Texas] – a relation that had existed from the first settlement of her wilderness by the white race and which her people intended should exist in all future time. Her institutions and geographical position established the strongest ties between her and other slaveholding states of the Confederacy. . . . In all the non-slave-holding states . . . the people have formed themselves into a great sectional party [i.e., the Republican Party] . . . based upon an unnatural feeling of hostility to these southern states and their beneficent and patriarchal system of African slavery, proclaiming the debasing doctrine of equality of all men irrespective of race or color – a doctrine at war with nature, in opposition to the experience of mankind, and in violation of the plainest revelations of divine law. They demand the abolition of Negro slavery throughout the Confederacy, the recognition of political equality between the white and Negro races, and avow their determination to press on their crusade against us so long as a Negro slave remains in these states. . . . By the secession of six of the slave-holding states, and the certainty that others will speedily do likewise, Texas has no alternative but to remain in an isolated connection with the North or unite her destinies with the South. 20

On April 17, 1861, Virginia became the eighth state to secede. It, too, acknowledged that the “oppression of the southern slave-holding states” (among which it numbered itself) had motivated its decision. 21

On May 8, 1861, Arkansas became the ninth state to join the Confederacy. Albert Pike (a prominent Arkansas newspaper owner and author of numerous legal works who became a Confederate general) explained why secession was unavoidable:

No concessions would now satisfy (and none ought now to satisfy) the South but such as would amount to a surrender of the distinctive principles by which the Republican Party coheres [exists], because none other or less would give the South peace and security. That Party would have to agree that in the view of the Constitution, slaves are property – that slavery might exist and should be legalized and protected in territory hereafter to be acquired to the southwest [e.g., New Mexico, Arizona, etc.], and that Negroes and mulattoes cannot be citizens of the United States nor vote at general elections in the states. . . . For that Party to make these concessions would simply be to commit suicide and therefore it is idle to expect from the North – so long as it [the Republican Party] rules there – a single concession of any value. 22

As Pike knew, the federal government under the Republicans was unwilling to abandon its anti-slavery positions; therefore the only recourse for the guarantee of continued slavery in Arkansas was secession – which Arkansas did.

Eventually, North Carolina and Tennessee became the tenth and eleventh states to secede, thus finishing the formation of the new nation that titled itself the Slave-Holding Confederate States of America. Southern secession documents indisputably affirm that the South’s desire to preserve slavery was the driving force in its secession and thus a primary cause of the Civil War.

2. The Declarations of Congressmen who left Congress to Join the Confederacy

Beginning on January 21, 1861, southern Democrats serving in Congress began resigning en masse to join the Confederacy. During this time, many stood in their respective federal legislative chambers and delivered their farewell statements unequivocally affirming what the secession documents clearly declared.

For example, Democrat U. S. Senator Alfred Iverson of Georgia bluntly told his peers:

I may safely say, however, that nothing will satisfy them [the seceded states] or bring them back short of a full and explicit recognition and guarantee of the safety of their institution of domestic slavery. 23

Democrat U. S. Senator Robert Toombs of Georgia (soon to become the Secretary of State for the Confederacy, and then a general in the Confederate Army) declared that the seceded South would return to the Union only if their pro-slavery demands were agreed to:

What do these Rebels demand? First, that the people of the United States shall have an equal right to emigrate and settle in the present or an future acquired territories with whatever property they may possess (including slaves). . . . The second proposition is that property in slaves shall be entitled to the same protection from the government of the United States, in all of its departments, everywhere, which the Constitution confers the power upon it to extend to any other property. . . . We demand in the next place . . . that a fugitive slave shall be surrendered under the provisions of the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850 without being entitled either to a writ of habeas corpus or trial by jury or other similar obstructions of legislation. . . . Slaves – black “people,” you say – are entitled to trial by jury. . . . You seek to outlaw $4,000,000,000 of property [slaves] of our people in the territories of the United States. Is not that a cause of war? . . . My distinguished friend from Mississippi [Mr. Jefferson Davis], another moderate gentleman like myself, proposed simply to get a recognition that we had the right to our own – that man could have property in man – and it met with the unanimous refusal even of the most moderate, Union-saving, compromising portion of the Republican party. . . . Mr. Lincoln thus accepts every cardinal principle of the Abolitionists; yet he ignorantly puts his authority for abolition upon the Declaration of Independence, which was never made any part of the public law of the United States. . . . Very well; you not only want to break down our constitutional rights – you not only want to upturn our social system – your people not only steal our slaves and make them freemen to vote against us – but you seek to bring an inferior race into a condition of equality, socially and politically, with our own people. 24 (emphasis added)

Democrat U. S. Senator Clement Clay of Alabama (soon to become a foreign diplomat for the Confederacy) also expounded the same points:

Not a decade, nor scarce a lustrum [five year period], has elapsed since [America’s] birth that has not been strongly marked by proofs of the growth and power of that anti-slavery spirit of the northern people which seeks the overthrow of that domestic institution [slavery] of the South, which is not only the chief source of her prosperity but the very basis of her social order and state polity. . . . No sentiment is more insulting or more hostile to our domestic tranquility, to our social order, and our social existence, than is contained in the declaration that our Negroes are entitled to liberty and equality with the white man. . . . To crown the climax of insult to our feelings and menace of our rights, this party nominated to the presidency a man who not only endorses the platform but promises in his zealous support of its principles to disregard the judgment of your courts [i.e., Lincoln had indicated that he would ignore the Supreme Court’s egregious Dred Scott decision], the obligations of your Constitution, and the requirements of his official oath, by approving any bill prohibiting slavery in the territories of the United States. 25

Democrat U. S. Senator John Slidell of Louisiana (soon to be a Confederate diplomat to France and Great Britain), echoed the same grievances:

We all consider the election of Mr. Lincoln, with his well-known antecedents and avowed [anti-slavery] principles and purposes . . . as conclusive evidence of the determined hostility of the Northern masses to our institutions. We believe that he conscientiously entertains the opinions which he has so often and so explicitly declared, and that having been elected on the [anti-slavery] issues thus presented, he will honestly endeavor to carry them into execution. While now [as a result of secession] we have no fears of servile insurrection [i.e. a slave revolt], even of a partial character, we know that his inauguration as President of the United States, with our assent, would have been considered by many of our slaves as the day of their emancipation. 26

Democrat U. S. House Representative William Yancey (who became a Confederate diplomat to Europe and then a Confederate Senator) similarly complained:

[The North is] united in pronouncing slavery a political and social evil. . . . There exists but one party that, either in spirit or sentiment, manifests any disposition to stand by the South and the Constitution, and that is the Democratic Party. . . . The institution of slavery. . . . exists for the benefit of the South and is its chief source of wealth and power; and now in the hour of its peril – assailed by the great Northern antagonistic force [the Republicans and abolitionists] – it must look to the South alone for protection. . . . The question then, naturally arises, what protection have we against the arbitrary course of the Northern majority? . . . The answer is . . . withdraw from it [i.e., secede]! 27

Perhaps the no-holds-barred pro-slavery position of Democrats and southern states was best summarized by Democrat U. S. Senator Judah P. Benjamin of Louisiana (who became the first Attorney General of the Confederacy, then its Secretary of War, and finally its Secretary of State), who declared:

never have admitted any power in Congress to prohibit slavery in the territories anywhere, upon any occasion, or at any time.28 (emphasis added)

Once the South seceded and organized its Confederate government, it immediately sought official diplomatic recognition from Great Britain and France, wrongly believing that by halting the export of Southern cotton into those nations they could strong-arm them into an official recognition of the Confederacy. But Great Britain and Europe already held large stores of cotton in reserve and also had access to textile imports from other nations, so the poorly conceived Confederate plan was unsuccessful.

France had been willing to extend official recognition to the Confederacy but would not do so unless Great Britain did the same. But Charles Francis Adams (U. S. Minister to England, and the son of John Quincy Adams and grandson of John Adams) rallied anti-slavery forces in Europe and England to successfully lobby Great Britain not to extend official recognition to the Confederacy. Those early diplomatic successes by the Union were bolstered by President Lincoln’s 1862 announcement of the Emancipation Proclamation freeing slaves in the American states in rebellion – an act very popular among working-class Britons. By October 1863, the Confederacy, not having received the official support it so badly needed, expelled British representatives from southern states.

Although Great Britain never extended official recognition, she did indirectly assist the South in many ways, including supplying the Confederacy with naval cruisers that pillaged Union merchant shipping and also providing weapons to southern troops, including the Whitworth rifle (considered one of the most accurate rifles in the Civil War). A number of Britons even crossed the ocean to serve in the Confederate Army; and in some British ranks, the sympathy for the Confederacy was so strong that after popular Confederate General Stonewall Jackson was accidentally shot down by his own troops, the mourning was just as visible in parts of England as it had been throughout the Confederacy. Some in the British press even likened the death of Jackson to that of their own national hero, Lord Nelson; and a British monument to General Jackson was even commissioned, paid for, and transported to Richmond, Virginia by Confederate sympathizers in Great Britain.

Christian leaders in France – seeing Britain’s unofficial support for the slave-holding Confederacy – dispatched a fiery letter to British clergy, strongly urging them to oppose every British effort to help the Confederacy. As the French clergy explained:

No more revolting spectacle has ever been before the civilized world than a Confederacy – consisting mainly of Protestants – forming itself and demanding independence, in the nineteenth century of the Christian era, with a professed design of maintaining and propagating slavery. The triumph of such a cause would put back the progress of Christian civilization and of humanity a whole century. 29

Foreign observers clearly saw what southern Democrat U. S. Representatives and Senators in Congress had already announced: the Civil War was the result of the South’s desire to perpetuate slavery.

3. The Confederate Constitution

On February 9, 1861 (following the secession of the seventh state), the seceded states organized their new Confederate government, electing Jefferson Davis (a resigned Democrat U. S. Senator from Mississippi) as their national president and Alexander Stephens (a resigned Democrat U. S. Representative from Georgia) as their national vice-president. On March 11 (only a week after the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln as President [Confederate apologists not only claim that slavery was not the central issue to the Confederacy but they also frequently portray Abraham Lincoln as a dictator, tyrant, atheist, homosexual, incompetent, drunk, etc. To “prove” this view, they rely heavily on The Real Lincoln by Thomas Dilorenzo (2002), The Real Lincoln by Charles Minor (1901), and Herndon’s Lincoln by William H. Herndon (1888). These three books (and a few others) portray Lincoln in a negative light, but literally hundreds of other scholarly biographies written about Lincoln – including by Pulitzer Prize-winning historians such as Carl Sandburg, Ida Tarbell, Garry Wills, Merrill Peterson, Don Fehrenbacher, and others – reached an opposite conclusion.
A similar corollary would be to study the life of Jesus only by reading The DaVinci Code or The Last Temptation of Christ, or to study the life of George Washington only by using W. E. Woodward’s George Washington: The Image and the Man. In both cases, those writings present a view of that person but hundreds of other writings present an opposite and more accurate view; so, too, with Lincoln. The view of Lincoln presented by Confederate apologists is indeed a view, but it is contradicted by scores of other writers who, after examining all the historical evidence, reached an opposite conclusion.]), a constitution was adopted for the new confederacy of slave-holding states – a constitution that explicitly protected slavery in numerous clauses:

ARTICLE I, Section 9, (4) No bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law denying or impairing the right of property in Negro slaves shall be passed.
ARTICLE IV, Section 2, (1) The citizens of each state . . . shall have the right of transit and sojourn in any state of this Confederacy with their slaves and other property; and the right of property in said slaves shall not be thereby impaired.
ARTICLE IV, Section 2, (3) [A] slave or other person held to service or labor in any state or territory of the Confederate States under the laws thereof, escaping or lawfully carried into another, shall . . . be delivered up on claim of the party to whom such slave belongs.
ARTICLE IV, Section 3, (3) The Confederate States may acquire new territory. . . . In all such territory, the institution of Negro slavery as it now exists in the Confederate States shall be recognized and protected by Congress and by the Territorial government; and the inhabitants of the several Confederate States and Territories shall have the right to take to such Territory any slaves lawfully held by them in any of the States or Territories of the Confederate States. 30

Ironically, southern apologists claim that the Confederacy was formed to preserve “states’ rights,” yet the Confederacy expressly prohibited any state from exercising its own “state’s right” to end slavery. Clearly, the Confederacy’s real issue was the preservation of slavery at all costs – even to the point that it constitutionally forbade the abolition of slavery by any of its member states.

4. Declaration of Confederate Vice-President Alexander Stephens

On March 21, 1861 (less than two weeks after the Confederacy had formed its constitution), Confederate Vice-President Alexander Stephens delivered a policy speech setting forth the purpose of the new government. That speech was entitled “African Slavery: The Corner-Stone of the Southern Confederacy.” In it, Stephens first acknowledged that the Founding Fathers – even those from the South – had never intended for slavery to remain in America:

The prevailing ideas entertained by him [Thomas Jefferson] and most of the leading statesmen at the time of the formation of the old Constitution were that the enslavement of the African was in violation of the laws of nature – that it was wrong in principle – socially, morally, and politically. It was an evil they knew not well how to deal with, but the general opinion of the men of that day was that somehow or other, in the order of Providence, the institution would be evanescent [temporary] and pass away. 31

What did Vice-President Stephens and the new Confederate nation think about these anti-slavery ideas of the Founding Fathers?

Those ideas, however, were fundamentally wrong. They rested upon the assumption of the equality of races. This was an error. . . . and the idea of a government built upon it. . . . Our new government [the Confederate States of America] is founded upon exactly the opposite idea; its foundations are laid – its cornerstone rests – upon the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the white man. That slavery – subordination to the superior [white] race – is his natural and moral condition. This – our new [Confederate] government – is the first in the history of the world based upon this great physical, philosophical, and moral truth. 32 (emphasis added)

Notice that by the title (as well as the content) of his speech, Confederate Vice-President Stephens affirmed that slavery was the central issue distinguishing the Confederacy.

Were Economic Policies a Major Factor in Secession?

 

Many southern apologists assert that the primary cause of the Civil War was unjust economic policies imposed on the South by northerners in Congress, 33 but secession records refute that claim. In fact, of the eleven secession documents, only five mention economic issues – and each was in direct conjunction with slavery. For example:

Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery – the greatest material interest of the world. Its labor supplies the product which constitutes by far the largest and most important portions of commerce of the earth. These products are peculiar to the climate verging on the tropical regions; and by an imperious law of nature, none but the black race can bear exposure to the tropical sun. These products have become necessities of the world, and a blow at slavery is a blow at commerce and civilization. 34 MISSISSIPPI

Texas [and] Louisiana . . . have large areas of fertile, uncultivated lands peculiarly adapted to slave labor; and they are both so deeply interested in African slavery that it may be said to be absolutely necessary to their existence and is the keystone to the arch of their prosperity35 LOUISIANA

They [the northern abolitionists in Congress] have impoverished the slave-holding states by unequal and partial legislation [attempting to abolish slavery], thereby enriching themselves by draining our substance36 TEXAS

We had shed our blood and paid our money for its [slavery’s] acquisition. . . . [But b]y their [the North’s] declared principles and policy they have outlawed $3,000,000,000 of our property [i.e., slaves] in the common territories of the Union. . . . To avoid these evils, we . . . will seek new safeguards for our liberty, equality, security, and tranquility [by forming the Confederacy]. 37 GEORGIA

We prefer, however, our system of industry . . . by which starvation is unknown and abundance crowns the land – by which order is preserved by an unpaid police and many fertile regions of the world where the white man cannot labor are brought into usefulness by the labor of the African, and the whole world is blessed by our productions38 SOUTH CAROLINA

Clearly, even the economic reasons set forth by the South as causes for secession were directly related to slavery. Therefore, to claim that economic policies and not slavery was the cause of the Civil War is to make a distinction where there is no difference.

Summary

Numerous categories of official Confederate documents affirm that slavery was indeed the primary issue that drove the secession movement and was central to the rebellion; it is therefore blatant and unmitigated revisionism to assert – as do Confederate apologists – that “one of the most important” of the “truths of history” is “that the War Between the States [Many southerners ardently insist on describing the conflict as “The War Between the States” and strenuously object to use of the descriptor “Civil War” (see, for example, “Let’s Say ‘War Between The States’ “ (at: https://www.civilwarpoetry.org/FAQ/wbts.html) ). However, cursory examinations of dozens of Confederate documents, as well as histories of the war written by Confederates immediately following the conflict, demonstrate that the descriptor they themselves most frequently used was “Civil War.” (Other descriptors used much less often by southern authors include “War Between the States,” “War of Southern Secession,” and “War for Southern Independence.”) Therefore, the assertion that the term “Civil War” is an inaccurate or biased title for the conflict is refuted by an examination of Confederate soldiers and historians who lived at the time of that conflict.] was not a rebellion [While the question of whether the conflict constituted a “rebellion” was not addressed by this work, a simple query raises a significant implication: If the “war between the states” was not a “rebellion” (as modern southern apologists assert), then why did southern leaders during the Civil War describe themselves and other southern participants as “Rebels” – a derivate of the word “rebellion”? The simple descriptor “Rebels” used by the Confederates themselves certainly suggests that they certainly viewed the Civil War as a “Rebellion.”] nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery.” 39

Global Warming?! My BUTT!!

Image result for global warming is a hoax"

AND THEN THERE’S THIS:

Forecasters Expect “Arctic Blast” to Break More Than 300 Weather Records

Sounds like it’s officially time to dig your winter gear out of the closet

SOURCE .

Forecasters Expect "Arctic Blast" to Break More Than 300 Weather Records

QUICK REVIEW OF THE “WATERMELON” ALARMIST OVER THE LAST 50+ YEARS:

  1. As early as 1963 “scientists” were warning about “Global Cooling”, aka The Coming Ice Age. They said:

J. Murray Mitchell showed as early as 1963 a multidecadal cooling since about 1940.[1] At a conference on climate change held in Boulder, Colorado in 1965, evidence supporting Milankovitch cycles triggered speculation on how the calculated small changes in sunlight might somehow trigger ice ages. In 1966, Cesare Emiliani predicted that “a new glaciation will begin within a few thousand years.” …

Climate scientists were aware that predictions based on this trend were not possible – because the trend was poorly studied and not understood (for example see reference[17]). Despite that, in the popular press the possibility of cooling was reported generally without the caveats present in the scientific reports, and “unusually severe winters in Asia and parts of North America in 1972 and 1973…pushed the issue into the public consciousness”.[1]

…On January 11, 1970, the Washington Post reported that “Colder Winters Held Dawn of New Ice Age”.[19]

2. BUT by the early 1980’s the SAME “scientific” community began to warn of “Global Warming“.

The early 1980s would mark a sharp increase in global temperatures. Many experts point to 1988 as a critical turning point when watershed events placed global warming in the spotlight.

The summer of 1988 was the hottest on record (although many since then have been hotter). [MY NOTE: Not true. The summer of 1988 was NOT the summer of the hottest global temps. In the 1930’s temps were higher, with 132 degrees recorded in The Mojave Desert, we had “The Dust Bowl”!] 1988 also saw widespread drought and wildfires within the United States.

Scientists sounding the alarm about climate change began to see media and the public paying closer attention. NASA scientist James Hansen delivered testimony and presented models to congress in June of 1988, saying he was “99 percent sure” that global warming was upon us.

3. THEN we had real, hard data come out during the so-called “Global Warming” scare that the temps had flattened, and the last 3 years temps have decreased.

4. So the SAME batch of “scientists” changed their warnings yet AGAIN from “Global Warming” to…wait for it…”Global Climate Change“. The “scientific” community first held a conference on “Climate Change” in 1988, it was not til the data on BOTH cooling and warming were proven to be hoaxes that they began to popularize the new scare term “Climate Change” in 2002.

5. Climate-gate . Thousands upon thousands of documents from THE CENTER of “Global Cooling, Warming, Climate ChangeHOAX were leaked that PROVED that the “scientists” at the very core of all this were, simply put, LIARS. Data was left out. “Data” was added. “Data” was simply made up. All to fit the “Watermelon’s” agenda. (Watermelon is a term used to describe “scientists” who are Green on the outside, aka “EnvironMENTAList”, BUT Red on the inside, aka Communists. 

In short, all the weather/climate nonsense is simply the Communist’s way to scare us into letting them take control of our lives.

When it’s cold. Global cooling.

When it’s hot global warming.

UNLESS it’s been debunked- and it has been– then cooling or warming are BOTH signs of “Global Cooling/Warming”, aka “Climate Change.

So depending on the temperatur and weather conditions of any particular day…that IS “proof” of “Global-X”…and we need to let them take and have control.

Btw, here is what the terms mean IN REALITY:

WEATHER . the state of the atmosphere at a place and time as regards heat, dryness, sunshine, wind, rain, etc.

CLIMATE . the weather conditions prevailing in an area in general or over a long period.

Notice something. Weather DEFINES Climate.

The SAME people who can’t predict the temperature or rain fall TOMORROW, are the ones shrieking warnings about something 15-20 YEARS FROM NOW!!

In closing let me posit this:

You can forget “Global Warming” as the harbinger of Earthly doom. I have been meticulously measuring the hours of daylight since June and the data is irrefutable. Daylight hours are steadily waning and I calculate within 30 months the planet will be cast into TOTAL darkness. The consequences are obvious. Vegetation will die, the planet will freeze and all life will be extinguished shortly thereafter.

You laugh, but this is the same kind of “irrefutable data” argument being espoused by those little ‘Green’ people who want government to take total control of the means of manufacturing, transportation and distribution…sound familiar? Others are in it for the cold cash in the form of carbon credits.

If the climate never changed, we’d still be suffering from the last ice age. Geologically, it was not that long ago that carbon dioxide (what plants breathe) was four times what it is now. Oxygen (what animals breathe) levels were double. LIFE FLOURISHED. 

So there you have it.

You can believe what you want…I believe the above, and this .

If You Haven’t Seen the REAL Trump Yet It’s Because You DON’T WANT To

The shrinking number of Trump supporters* need to STOP. Just STOP. And take the time to REALLY THINK. Slow down to a crawl…AND THINK.

  1. What about THE DIRECT RESULTS of Trump’s actions do you support?
  2. What exactly about THE DIRECT RESULTS of Trump’s Supreme Court picks ACTUALLY panned out to be the Conservatives and Constitutionalist he/they said they were?
  3. What about Trump’s HAND-PICKED Cabinet and Administrative picks says to you that they are ACTUALLY honest, Conservative, Constitutional, Patriotic, Rule of Law, moral picks?
  4. What about Trump’s VERY OWN words, deeds, Tweets, behaviour, and life lead you to HONESTLY believe that Trump is REALLY a Christian, moral man, Honest, a man of Integrity, a Constitutionalist, and a REAL Patriot?

*Trump has 70% of GOP support…BUT those claiming to BE GOP are much fewer.

Forget all the spin from the WH. Ignore the spin from Fox, Breitbart, The Daily Caller, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham et al…what in REALITY is there about Trump that is truly/really: good, moral, honest, Conservative, Constitutional, Patriotic, and normal? Be honest. IGNORE all the spin from ALL your favorite spinsters. What about Trump THE PERSON- who he REALLY is- do you like?

While you’re thinking let me go over the above 4 “bullet points” again. This time with Real World answer.

  1. What about THE DIRECT RESULTS of Trump’s actions do you support? Tariffs? They have raised TAXES ON US! Farmers, the auto industry, and every retailer is getting hit HARD, many declaring and/or close to declaring bankruptcy because of Trump’s Foolish, aka Marxist, Tariff wars. His “tax cut” was so worded, and targeted as to ONLY “help” a miniscule  minority, namely they benefited Trump and a few, select supporters. Trump’s rash, brazen, illegal, and unconstitutional Tweets and exchanges with the media (whom Trump calls “The Enemy of The State”!!) all enrage and endanger our Allies, and aid and abet our enemies. BE HONEST…ask yourself: If this was Obama, Hillary, or any Democrat would you STILL give them a pass??
  2.  What exactly about THE DIRECT RESULTS of Trump’s Supreme Court picks ACTUALLY panned out to be the Conservatives and Constitutionalist he/they said they were? Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh have ALREADY several times voted WITH the LIBERAL Justices. And the WORST thing is this: they and Trump’s AG pick think the President should have more power, AND be more immune to scrutiny and from consequences.
  3. What about Trump’s HAND-PICKED Cabinet and Administrative picks says to you that they are ACTUALLY honest, Conservative, Constitutional, Patriotic, Rule of Law, moral picks? MANAFORT. FLYNN, COHEN. BANNON. TILLERSON. PAGE. BENNETT. STONE. GIULIANI. KUSHNER. DON, JR., ERIC. IVANKA…ALL in some scandal.  Many ALREADY in prison or indicted.
  4. What about Trump’s VERY OWN words, deeds, Tweets, behaviour, and life lead you to HONESTLY believe that Trump is REALLY a Christian, moral man, Honest, a man of Integrity, a Constitutionalist, and a REAL Patriot? For a detailed look at Trump’s profanity, perversion, corruption, fraud, lying, and treason see HERE , HERE , HERE, HERE , HEREHERE .

There are a boat-load links to scads of articles chock-full of facts, evidence, eye-witness accounts, and corroboration in the above links. They have ALL been abundant and easy to find…for those who looked.

CALLING OUT ALL “CHRISTIANS” AND “CONSERVATIVES” WHO SUPPORT TRUMP

Image result for Proverbs 21:6"

THAT is but ONE wicked aspect of who and what Trump is.

There are some who have followed me and read my posts who are about to be surprised, maybe even shocked by the following statement:

I’ve held back.

Using restraint I always spoke The Truth, always backed it with facts, evidence, and witnesses…BUT due to discretion I softened what and HOW I said it a LOT.

NO MORE.

[NOTE: This is quite a long read. You may want to put on a pot of coffee and cut out an hour for reading this. BUT IF you criticise this WITHOUT reading it ALL I will NOT talk to you about ONE point. I have spent years studying The Bible, studying history, praying, researching, and observing…do NOT offer one iota of disagreement IF you have NOT read the entirety of this article.] 

The above Scripture IS an spot-on depiction of who and what Trump is, as are the following Scriptures:

Let’s read that again:

Proverbs 6:12-19

12 A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth.

13 He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers;

14 Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord.

15 Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

THAT IS TRUMP.

FIRST, LET ME SPEAK TO THOSE WHO CLAIM CHRISTIAN AND SUPPORT TRUMP…

IF you claim to be a Christian QUIT EXCUSING SIN!

ONLY those who claim to be “Christian” but are either weak, cold, backslid or hypocrites/liars excuse sin.

The Sins of Trump that YOU HAVE EXCUSED:

The Profanity President: Trump’s Four-Letter Vocabulary

SOURCE .

***WARNING! TRUMP’S GRAPHIC PROFANITY IS REPORTED BELOW!! I CLEAN UP AS MUCH AS I CAN WITHOUT RUINING THE LINKS TO THE SOURCES.***

In modern times, presidents have rarely been church mice afraid of a little salty language. But President Trump has grown increasingly willing in recent months to say in public what most of his predecessors tried to keep behind closed doors.

His is the profanity presidency, full of four-letter denunciations of his enemies and earthy dismissals of allegations lodged against him. At rallies and in interviews, on Twitter and in formal speeches, he relishes the bad-boy language of a shock jock, just one more way of gleefully provoking the political establishment bothered by his norm-shattering ways.

In a single speech on Friday alone, he managed to throw out a “hell,” an “ass” and a couple of “bullsh*ts” for good measure. In the course of just one rally in Panama City Beach, Fla., earlier this month, he tossed out 10 “hells,” three “damns” and a “crap.” The audiences did not seem to mind. They cheered and whooped and applauded…

…Martha Joynt Kumar, a longtime scholar of presidential communication, said gritty language was part of the show put on by Mr. Trump, the onetime reality television entertainer, for his fans.

“He knows they like him to use words that lie over the edge of the traditional boundary of presidential decorum,” she said. “His controversial word choices are an aspect of his role as the disrupter he promised his constituents he would be.”

But critics say the vulgarity comes at a cost.No one has debased the civil discourse in this country more than President Trump, and the president really does set the tone in the country,” said Representative Adam B. Schiff, Democrat of California. “We see it reflected in our offices by the hateful, belligerent, obscene and violent calls that we get now that we didn’t used to get.”

Mr. Schiff has experienced it personally when Mr. Trump turned his name into a profanity last fall by nicknaming him “little Adam Schitt.” …

…if anything, Mr. Trump is growing more comfortable with crudeness. He used the word “bullsh*t” in public just once in his first two years in office, according to the Factba.se database that tracks his speeches, but on four occasions in the last three months.

Never has any president pushed the boundaries of language as far as Mr. Trump. He had a foul mouth long before politics, of course, but he seemed to try, however fitfully, to clean it up for a while when he set his sights on the White House. Still, he could not resist at times. At one rally during his 2016 campaign, he quoted a supporter calling a Republican rival, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, a “pussy.”

Once taking office, he tried, at least, to keep it private, but he was uninhibited when the cameras were not on. After the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, was appointed, he told aides, I’m fucked.” Speaking with lawmakers, he called African nations “shithole countries.”…

…Any restraint Mr. Trump may have sought to exhibit early in his term seems to have eroded in recent months. In a January interview with The Times, he boasted that he had “beat the shit out of Republican rivals in 2016. A month later, he told the Conservative Political Action Conference that his enemies were trying to take him out “with bullshit,” a word he then took up with vigor.

A few weeks later, he told a rally in Grand Rapids, Mich., that Democrats were peddling it (BS). In April, he used it (BS) to describe some statements in the special counsel report.

By the time the president took the stage before the National Association of Realtors in Washington on Friday, he was in a feisty mood.

He recalled that a consultant tried to make work for himself by identifying environmental concerns on a property Mr. Trump wanted to develop. “I fired his ass so fast,” the president recalled…

…[Trump] went after one of his favorite targets — journalists — claiming that recent reports of infighting within his national security team were made up. “There is no source,” he said. “The person doesn’t exist. The person’s not alive. It’s bullsh*t, O.K.? It’s bullsh*t.”

OTHER SOURCES.

Trump described his attempt to seduce a married woman and indicated he might start kissing a woman that he and Bush were about to meet. He added, “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

In the video, Trump tells Billy Bush about a failed attempt to seduce Nancy O’Dell, who was Bush’s co-host at the time (circa 2005) of the recording:[9]

I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it.

I did try and f*ck her. She was married.

And I moved on her very heavily. In fact, I took her out furniture shopping. She wanted to get some furniture. I said, “I’ll show you where they have some nice furniture.” I took her out furniture—I moved on her like a b*tch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.[3]

Later, referring to Arianne Zucker (whom they were waiting to meet), Trump says:

I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful—I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the p*ssy. You can do anything.[3]

Trump called out by some Christians for using ‘Lord’s name in vain’ at fiery NC rally

SOURCE .

The controversial “send her back” crowd chant at President Donald Trump’s North Carolina rally may have gotten all the headlines, but some Christians are grumbling over something most of the media completely ignored.

Trump cursed, and it was not just a few vulgarities. He took the Lord’s name in vain.

Twice…

…Among the two instances Trump used the term, according to RawStory, was an anecdote the president told of a meeting with a disliked business competitor who Trump says admitted to prospering under the Trump administration.

“If you don’t support me, you are going to be so Godd*mn poor, you are not going to believe it’,” Trump quoted himself telling the man.

The president used “godd*mn” a second time in a reference to how hard the nation’s armed forces might strike Iran, should it come to a military conflict.

NOTE: ONLY some “Christians” were offended by Trump’s taking the name of The Lord in vain!!

ALL REAL Christians were, and ARE offended by Trump’s taking OUR Lord and Saviour’s name in vain! ONLY phony hypocrites are ok with it! And secondly, apparently even the ones who took issue with Trump’s taking The Lord’s Name in vain were NOT bothered in the least by ALL the other documented instances of profanity and perversion from this vile creature!

THAT IS TRUMP! THAT IS WHO AND WHAT TRUMP IS!

And the corruption is seen elsewhere in Trump:

Rachel Crooks, left, Jessica Leeds, center, and Samantha Holvey attend a news conference, Monday, Dec. 11, 2017, in New York to discuss their accusations of sexual misconduct against Donald Trump.

 

  • At least 25 women have accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct since the 1970s.
  • Renewed attention has been brought to the allegations amid the #MeToo movement and a national conversation concerning sexual misconduct.
  • Trump has repeatedly denied the accusations, denouncing his accusers as “liars.”
  • In June 2019, columnist E. Jean Carroll accused President Donald Trump of sexually assaulting her in a Bergdorf Goodman dressing room the mid-1990s.

President Trump has made 12,019 false or misleading claims over 928 days

SOURCE .

President Trump’s proclivity for spouting exaggerated numbers, unwarranted boasts and outright falsehoods has continued at a remarkable pace. As of Aug. 5, his 928th day in office, he had made 12,019 false or misleading claims, according to the Fact Checker’s database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement the president has uttered.

 

Trump crossed the 10,000 mark on April 26, and he has been averaging about 20 fishy claims a day since then. From the start of his presidency, he has averaged about 13 such claims a day.

============

NOTE: “Misleading”, “false”, “inccorrect”, “made-up” are soft-soap ways of saying Trump IS a Sociopathic, psychopathic LIAR.

==============

I guarantee that if Trump had ran as the Democrat, NY Liberal he REALLY IS, instead of PRETENDING to be a Christian and a Conservative all these phony-baloney, so-called Christians would have FROM THE START been denouncing him! 

The reason they don’t do so is HYPOCRISY! They are bribed, blackmailed, or bullied into supporting a raving, profane, perverted ANTI-CHRIST! Or worse, THEY WILLINGLY AGREE WITH TRUMP. 

=========

But wasn’t Trump led to The Lord Jesus Christ early in his run for office?
NO.

The person that (so-called) led Trump to Christian faith is a prosperity “gospel”, heretic named Paula White.

WHO IS PAULA WHITE?

1. Part of the controversy surrounding White, and perhaps why she appealed to Trump, is because she teaches “prosperity gospel”, which holds that faith and donations to religious causes will boost adherents’ financial wellbeing as well as their spiritual health. As recently as last year, White encouraged members of her congregation to send their first month’s salary to her ministry to enjoy God’s blessings. (!!!WHAT?!!!) White is now married [3rd marriage; not counting her affairs.] to Jonathan Cain, the keyboardist from the rock band Journey, and the two often travel together, including to DC to see the president. 

2. While living in Maryland in 1984, she converted to Christianity at the Damascus Church of God. She later claimed to have received a vision from God shortly after her conversion: “When I was just eighteen years old, the Lord gave me a vision that every time I opened my mouth and declared the Word of the Lord, there was a manifestation of His Spirit where people were either healed, delivered, or saved. When I shut my mouth, they fell off into utter darkness and God spoke to me and said ‘I called you to preach the gospel.'”[10]

3. Southern Baptist theologian and ethicist Russell D. Moore said that “Paula White is a charlatan and recognized as a heretic by every orthodox Christian, of whatever tribe.”[53] Michael Horton, a professor of theology at Westminster Seminary California, wrote in early January 2017 that White represented a heretical movement and that her then-upcoming address at President Trump’s inauguration was helping to introduce heresy into mainstream public life. Horton addressed White’s alleged denial of the Trinity and the prosperity gospel’s position that Christ died on the cross not for the forgiveness of humankind but to rescue people from financial hardship.[53]

4. Connor Gaffey has drawn attention to a 2007 televised event at which White stated, “Anyone who tells you to deny yourself is from Satan.” Gaffey contrasts that with Jesus’ words in the Gospel of Matthew: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.”[38]

5. Adulterous relationship with (married) Benny Hinn; In 2010 White’s relationship with married televangelist Benny Hinn gave rise to controversy after being photographed leaving a hotel in Rome holding hands. Hinn said “A friendship did develop” though “the relationship is over.” Both denied an affair.[62][63][64]  

IF it was “innocent” WHY were they sharing a hotel room when he was MARRIED? WHY leave the hotel room HOLDING HANDS? WHY say “it’s overIF it was truly innocent? They were caught- but refused to confess and repent.

=======================

But doesn’t Trump have a personal, evangelical Christian minister pray with him daily? Um, not really…unless you count another blasphemous heretic as “an evangelical Christian minister”…

Rodney Howard Browne, The Heretic Who Laid hands On Trump…

I was heartened the other day when I read that the President of the United States took time out of his busy schedule to allow an “Evangelical Minister” to lay hands on Him and pray. He needs prayer, and the support of the evangelical church, as much as possible.

But then my joy turned to angst when I read further, that the “evangelical minister” who prayed for Trump, was in fact a spiritually dangerous counterfeit, a purveyor of false doctrine and gnostic, experience based spirituality named Rodney Howard Browne.

I shouldn’t have been surprised because one of the President’s closest Spiritual advisor, is  a televangelist and Word of Faith heresy  proponent Paula White who is of the same heretical ilk as Rodney Howard Browne.

In short Rodney Howard Browne is the Father of the so called “Laughing Revival” of mysticism and Spiritual Drunkenness which led directly to the disastrously destructive “Toronto Blessing” which spread through Pentecostal, Charismatic and Even evangelical churches in the late 1990’s spreading heresy, false doctrine, mystical experience, deception and delusion throughout the world.

Howard Browne is famous for calling himself the “Holy Ghost Bartender” and inducing people into states of Spiritual Drunkenness, and has destroyed much of what was left of the sense of the true Fear of God in many, many Pentecostal, Charismatic churches. I consider him a minister of Judgment and part of the Strong, God sent Delusion.

In the interest of discernment and for the sake of real prayer by real Christians, I am excerpting a chapter of my 1995 book, WEIGHED AND FOUND WANTING;PUTTING THE TORNOTO BLESSING IN CONTEXT, to let you know just who this man is.

 

Who Is Rodney Howard Browne?

He was born into a Pentecostal home, an atmosphere that was bathed in prayer. By his own testimony, he was saved at the age of five and baptized in the Holy Spirit at age eight. Both at home and in the Pentecostal church he attended, he testifies of

“continually [seeing] supernatural manifestations.”2
His own “baptism of fire” occurred in 1979, while he was still a teenager. Here is how he tells it.

I knew that there was more, much more…In July of 1979, I cried out to God in sheer desperation. I wanted Him to manifest Himself to me and in me. I was hungry…As I prayed that day, I told the Lord, “Either you come down here and touch me, or I am going to come up there and touch you.” I was desperate. I must have called out to God for about 20 minutes that day. Suddenly, the fire of God fell on me. It started on my head and went right down to my feet. His power burned in my body and stayed like that for three whole days…I was really praying, “Lord, I am too young to die.” In the fourth day, I am not praying, “O Lord send your glory,” I am praying, “Please lift it off me so that I can bear it.” I was plugged into heaven’s electric light supply…my desire has been to go and plug other people in. My whole body was on fire…Out of my belly began to flow a river of living water. I began to laugh uncontrollably and then I began to weep and then speak with tongues. I was so intoxicated on the wine of the Holy Ghost that I was beside myself…Because of that encounter with the Lord, my life was radically changed from that day on.3

Rodney Howard Browne proceeds in the book to relate changes in his ministry after that anointing with fire, while preaching in a Methodist church. I’ll let him tell it in his own humorous way.

We were preaching in a Methodist church. I was back in the vestibule—which is a holy name for a plain old office—preparing for service. One of the young ladies came into the office and asked me to pray for her because she was in terrible pain…I got my hand halfway to her head, almost like a gunslinger would draw a gun out of a holster, and point it at his opponent. Suddenly, unexpectedly, it felt like my finger tips came off. I felt a full volume of anointing flow out of my hand. The only way I can explain it is to liken it to a fireman holding a fire hose with a full volume of water flowing out of it. The anointing went right into her. It looked like someone had hit her in the head with an invisible baseball bat and she fell to the floor…4

On and on it goes.

Notice the sensuality of the testimony, though. The fire of God courses through his body, it shoots out of his fingers, like a gun, she gets hit by an invisible bat! The concept behind the word sensual is not always referring to “sexual.” Sensual refers to the things pertaining to the five physical senses. Rodney Howard Browne has a very sensual ministry. The promise is held out that you are going to be touched by God, you’re going to feel God, you’ll even get drunk on the new wine! You’ll laugh, stagger, get stuck to the floor, and generally have an all out good time! It’s “fun” going to these meetings!

Back to Who is Rodney Howard Browne?

In 1987, Rodney Howard Browne left his native South Africa to come to the

United States, on a “word from God.” By that time, he had already pioneered a church, pastored for a time and been on the pastoral staff of Ray McCauley’s Rhema Bible Church in Johannesburg. Upon arriving in America, he commenced an itinerant ministry.

It was at a series of meetings in Albany, New York in 1989 that the unusual manifestations had begun to take place. It began to occur at a time when both he and his wife were hungry for God to move. As he was preaching at a morning meeting, he said a cloud filled the room, visible to others, but not to him. He could feel it, though. People began falling out of their seats as he preached.

While I was preaching, the power of God began to fall. Many people began to fall out of their seats. It looked like someone was shooting them and in some places whole rows at a time would go down. They were laughing and crying and falling all over the place and looked like drunken people.5

Rodney Howard Browne became an internationally prominent revivalist after a Spring, 1993 meeting at an Assembly of God church in Lakeland, Florida, the Carpenter’s Home Church. He was scheduled for one week, but the meeting lasted four! People who heard about it flew in from as far away as Africa, Great Britain and Argentina. What made the difference in this revival meeting? According to Charisma Magazine,

The difference was the laughter. No matter what Howard Browne did or said, hundreds who attended the daily sessions always ended up on the sanctuary floor in helpless laughter. When the services were broadcast on radio, more curious seekers showed up to join the fun.6

In Conclusion

I suppose I could go on and on, “building a case,” about my reservations of the ministry of Rodney Howard Browne, but why? After all of the above, if you don’t have serious problems, you are also a victim of the continuous conditioning that has taken place. Keep in mind that it was a transference of his “anointing” into Randy Clark who brought “it” to Toronto, that “birthed” the Toronto Blessing. I hope that I have brought some clarity to the issue. This is not about personality, it’s about truth. Can you see Jesus or the apostles even remotely promoting anything like this? I think not.

 

Is Rodney Howard Browne correct when he dismisses his critics by saying things like,

RHB-Now some would say, “I don’t believe it,” that’s fine, those people that don’t want to believe it, they probably wouldn’t believe anything. They probably wouldn’t believe the Bible…16

On the contrary, I don’t buy this, and I believe in the Bible! I also believe in the present activity of the Holy Spirit. I consider myself to be spirit filled and have seen many “signs, wonders, and gifts of the Holy Ghost” over the years in my ministry as well as in many other fellow ministers. We have witnessed the casting out of devils, healing of the sick, and powerful life transformations, all to confirm the preaching of the gospel! So don’t dismiss me as an unbelieving, religious dead head!

I want to close this chapter by encouraging you to hold fast to that which is good. We know that certain men have crept in unawares, but that doesn’t mean that we have to throw out the validity of supernatural workings of God. The Pentecostal experience is needed now more than ever, God’s people do need a fresh baptism in the Holy Ghost, to witness afresh to this sin-sick generation.

Isn’t judging wrong?

  

 

 

2. Matthew 7:1 “Judge not, that you be not judged.” This passage is abused among the haters of Christianity. It’s not used to teach us to guard against being hypocritical, as Jesus intended it to be used, but used to silence anyone who would espouse any godly standard above that of being a dog. Jesus isn’t giving a blanket statement for not judging, but given a lesson on how to judge rightly.

I like what Paul Washer said concerning this verse: “People always tell me, ‘Judge not, lest ye be judged.’ I reply, ‘Twist not Scripture, lest ye be like Satan.’”

ALSO SEE HERE , HERE , AND HERE .

A text taken out of context, becomes a pretext

Many Christians today just take one verse out of the Bible without even poring over its whole context – and at times not going through the whole story. This practice is tantamount to isolating the taken text from its co-text. It’s imperative for readers to read the whole chapter and the succeeding verses – not just one verse – for us to get what the Bible really wants to convey to us.

Matthew 7: 1-5 says;

(1) Judge not, that you be not judged. (2) For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged: and with what measure you mete, it shall be measured to you again. (3) And why behold you the mote that is in your brother’s eye, but consider not the beam that is in your own eye? (4) or how will you say to your brother, Let me pull out the mote out of your eye; and, behold, a beam is in your own eye? (5)You hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of your own eye; and then shall you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother’s eye.

In verse 5, we can clearly see that the Bible is actually teaching us not ‘not to judge’ – but ‘how to judge righteously’. It says that, for us not to be called hypocrites, we must cast out first the beam that is in our own eye before we cast the mote out of our brother’s eye. So you see, it’s fairly easy for Christians to take this out of context – most especially if their intentions were to be in a safe side by not pointing at a brother’s smudge. To stay silent about a brother or a sister engaging in fornication or adultery because you too are ‘not sin-less’ is ignorance of the Word – but staying silent about the same because you yourself are a fugitive murderer is another thing. The Bible actually encourages believers to judge – but rather in a righteous manner – it’s just that we should be very careful when judging others. It tells us that we should not judge them if we ourselves are of the same league as them – and that is sheer hypocrisy.

 

 READ THE ABOVE SCRIPTURE AGAIN:

John 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

THAT IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST SPEAKING…AND HE SAYS THAT WE ARE TO JUDGE RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT.

Christians in Support of the Impeachment Inquiry

SOURCE .

As Christians in the United States of America, we join together as people of faith to express our conviction that an impeachment inquiry is necessary to reveal the truth, hold President Donald J. Trump and other public officials accountable, and bolster democracy in the United States. We welcome the light of truth, honesty, and transparency that this moment affords our country, whatever may be revealed. We call for an open inquiry that shines light on this administration’s dealings behind closed doors and petition people of faith and integrity to join us in calling forth this light. 

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life,” Jesus said (John 8:12). Jesus’ words and ministry highlight the connection between truth and the well-being of the poor, the sick, the immigrant, the imprisoned, and the earth. Likewise, we who follow Jesus must make visible that any President’s violation of his oath of office would harm the most vulnerable among us.

The current impeachment inquiry is focused specifically on whether President Trump solicited help from a foreign government in his 2020 re-election campaign, buried evidence of that solicitation, and then attacked the whistleblowers and Congressional representatives who brought evidence to light. The constitutional process that gives the U.S. Congress power to investigate and try a sitting President is needed in this moment, because none of us can know the full truth apart from this process. But we have already seen enough to know that the accusations are both serious and credible.

While President Trump claims there is an evangelical revival supporting him, we know there is also a revival of people of faith whose commitment to truth remains strong and vigilant. We are Christians who resolutely affirm Jesus’ teachings of justice, love, and equality — echoed in the basic values at the heart of our democracy. This is not a matter of partisanship, but of deepest principle. 

For the sake of our nation’s integrity and the most vulnerable in our society, we call on fellow Christians to support the current impeachment inquiry. Now is the time to shine the light of truth. Please join us in praying that the truth will be revealed and set us all free.

Report: Mulvaney’s Ukraine Remarks Shocked White House

He tried to walk it back Thursday night

When asked during the press conference if there had been a quid pro quo, Mulvaney said: “We do that all the time with foreign policy. … Get over it.” Sources tell the Washington Post that Mulvaney’s remarks took other White House officials by surprise and there was a rush to put out a new statement.

Trump Uses Controversial New Word on Impeachment

This is a ‘lynching,’ he says, and black lawmakers are not pleased

SOURCE .

President Trump doesn’t think the impeachment investigation is merely a “witch hunt.” In a tweet Tuesday, he called it a “lynching,” …”So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights,” wrote Trump. “All Republicans must remember what they are witnessing here—a lynching. But we will WIN!”

NOTE: The INVESTIGATION, Impeachment Inquiry, are NOT:

  • a witch hunt

NYT Says Ukraine Timeline Isn’t What We Thought

Paper says documents, sources show Ukraine knew about aid freeze in early August

SOURCE .

Diplomat William Taylor’s Tuesday testimony to House impeachment investigators drew “sighs and gasps”—and a “pfft!” from President Trump, who dismissively tweeted on Wednesday morning, “Neither he (Taylor) or any other witness has provided testimony that the Ukrainians were aware that military aid was being withheld.” Not so, reports the New York Times, which claims sources and documents indicate “high-level Ukrainian officials” knew the aid was on ice by the first week of August. That runs counter to a major line of defense presented by Trump and his supporters: That there was no quid pro quo because the Ukrainians were unaware the nearly $400 million military aid package had been frozen until weeks later, in late August.

Before Key Testimony, Trump Lashes Out

He dismisses NSC’s Vindman as a ‘Never Trumper’

It could be a troubling day for President Trump in terms of impeachment testimony, and he unleashed a series of tweets Tuesday morning to undermine the credibility of a key witness. “Why are people that I never even heard of testifying about the call,” Trump tweeted. “Just READ THE CALL TRANSCRIPT AND THE IMPEACHMENT HOAX IS OVER! Ukrain said NO PRESSURE.” The tweet came hours before the testimony of a White House official who listened in on Trump’s July call with Ukraine’s leader, notes Politico. In an opening statement released in advance, Lt. Col Alexander Vindman of the National Security Council said he worried that Trump’s pressure on Ukraine to launch an investigation into the Bidens would undermine US national security, per the Hill.

Trump criticized Vindman Tuesday without mentioning him by name. “Supposedly, according to the Corrupt Media, the Ukraine call ‘concerned’ today’s Never Trumper witness,” Trump tweeted. “Was he on the same call that I was? Can’t be possible! Please ask him to read the Transcript of the call. Witch Hunt!”

==========================

Lastly, due to the fact that many Christians say they are Conservative and vice versa, let me close with this:

Fellowship of the Pharisees preach fealty to Trump, call it faith in God

In the summer of 2016, so-called evangelicals along with a bunch of prosperity gospel con-artistsa group I refer to as the Fellowship of the Pharisees — held a private get-together with Donald Trump to allegedly discuss issues important to Christians and America. In reality, it was an occasion for the Fellowship to reject G-O-D and replace him with the G-O-P where Trump — the twice-divorced, thrice-married, unrepentant, pro-Planned Parenthood, adulterous, strip-club owner — was praised for his incredible “family values.”

With their seats at Herod Trump’s table firmly secured, and with Trump’s 2020 re-election less-than-certain, the Fellowship has been busy lately building a “hedge of protection” around their orange messiah as they defend and praise him for his god-like character.

In an appearance on Tony Perkins’ Washington Watch program last week, former congresswomen Michele Bachmann, who used to be chairwoman of Perkins’ Family Research Council, defended Trump against his coming impeachment and declared that he “understands the difference between good and evil.” Additionally, she said that “We have not seen a president with greater moral clarity than this president.”

Based on past statements, Bachmann’s declaration of Trump’s morality was actually a little subdued. Earlier this year, she said in an appearance on Understanding the Times that Trump is “highly biblical” and that we’ll “never see a more godly, biblical president again in our lifetime.”

One of the prosperity gospel con-artists in Trump’s inner circle of “spiritual advisors” is twice-divorced, thrice-married — hey, just like Trump — Paula White, who was recently hired to work as an advisor for his Faith and Opportunity Initiative. White has a long history with Trump; she’s known him since 2002, prayed at his inauguration, and visits the White House often as his personal pastor.

When Trump officially announced his re-election in June, White prayed against the “demonic network” opposed to Trump. When asked a few weeks prior to her new gig at the White House about her political relationship with Trump, White said she could never say “no” to Trump because it would be like “saying no to God.”

Right Wing Watch

@RightWingWatch

Pastor Paula White claims that she was ordered by God to serve as an adviser to Trump: “To say ‘no’ to President Trump would be saying ‘no’ to God, and I won’t do that.”

First Baptist Church of Dallas pastor Robert Jeffress, who predicted a “civil war” if Trump is impeached and once called “Never Trump” evangelicals “spineless morons” for not supporting him, appeared on Fox Business to defend Trump for “the values [he] embraces.”

Jeffress also trumpeted that “99 percent of evangelicals oppose impeachment” because “never in the history of America have we had a president who was a stronger warrior for the Judeo-Christian principles upon which this nation was founded than in President Donald J. Trump.” The Southern Baptist Pharisee also said that “the effort to impeach President Trump is really an effort to impeach our own deeply held faith values.”

If by “our own deeply held faith values” he means the values held by the Fellowship of the Pharisees — like when Tony Perkins gave Trump a “mulligan” for paying hush money to a porn star to hide his affair with her — I can see where Jeffress is coming from.

When Ralph Reed recently argued that evangelicals “have a moral obligation to enthusiastically” back Trump in 2020, I noted how if it was Jesus instead of Trump, America would be in the midst of revival. Instead, the Fellowship of the Pharisees has rejected God’s Son to worship God’s Man…who is in actuality an Anti-Christ.

=====================
IF you made this far, and read it ALL, and still are not convinced that Trump should be in prison instead of having YOUR support then there is NO hope for you, and NO hope for America.

As for me…I’ll ALWAYS and ONLY trust in The Lord Jesus Christ, for HE IS my Blessed Hope.

Trump Told Erdogan That Barr and Mnuchin Would Handle Halkbank Case: Report

President Trump referred Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s repeated requests for the U.S. to avoid pressing charges on one of the country’s largest banks to Attorney General William Barr and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Bloomberg reports. Trump reportedly told Erdogan in an April call that Barr and Mnuchin would handle the issue, and no charges were pressed against Turkish bank Halkbank until recently. The federal charges only came after Trump announced sanctions against Turkey in retaliation for its incursion into Syria. It is not clear if Trump asked Barr and Mnuchin to comply with Turkey’s demands, or if he simply passed the matter on to them because he was tired of hearing the requests.

About two months after the call, Barr reportedly told Turkish Minister of Justice Abdulhamit Gul that he would need to reach a deal with the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan for the case or have it go through a trial. The attorney general reportedly advised Turkey on its best option: a deferred prosecution agreement that would require Halkbank to pay a fine and other actions to prevent further wrongdoing. The country ended up not making a deal, and Halkbank was charged earlier this week with “fraud, money laundering, and sanctions offense.” Mnuchin was also reportedly involved due to the Treasury Department’s role in determining the regulatory penalties against Halkbank for a separate criminal case involving one of their executives.

Barr And Pence Now Implicated As Suspects In House Impeachment Investigation

SOURCE .

Even though the impeachment inquiry announced Tuesday by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has as its main subject President Donald Trump, on Wednesday that investigation began to expand to other members of the administration, including Attorney General William Barr and Vice President Mike Pence, both of whom are now in serious jeopardy and may also wind up being impeached for their role in the unfolding Ukraine scandal.

You’re probably wondering, “What is the worst that could come of this?”

Turkey holding 50 US nuclear bombs ‘hostage’ at air base, report says

SOURCE .

Officials are reviewing plans to evacuate up to 50 U.S. nuclear bombs that have long been stored at Incirlik Air Base in Turkey in the wake of Ankara’s military offensive in northern Syria, according to a report.

The weapons are now essentially being held “hostage” by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a senior official told The New York Times on Monday.

The Cold War-era B61 nuclear bombs are said to be located 100-250 miles from the Syrian border, according to The Guardian. A former U.S. official told the outlet that Turkish diplomats responded to suggestions about moving the bombs by saying Turkey would start to develop its own.

“The potential problems have been discussed for over a decade,” the former official said. “And now we’ve finally gotten to a point where this is a problem that we can’t ignore anymore.”

The Deep State conspiracy nonsense is just that, nonsense. But there is something to the fact that the government consists of tens if not hundreds of thousands of people, and at the upper levels, the professionals involved are more committed to the institution of government than they are to any one man.

That’s how it should be. That’s why there are civil service laws, and why the whole government isn’t replaced election by election. This way, there’s institutional integrity in the State Department, and in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and in the Department of Agriculture for that matter.

And it’s these same people, testifying with their expertise, to Congress, are going to be extremely damning to any pretense Trump’s lawyers want to put up. This is the real deal, and I think both houses will see that.

EXCLUSIVE: U.S. CEDES SYRIAN CITY TO RUSSIA IN BATTLEFIELD ‘HANDOVER’ AS TURKEY TRIES TO TAKE IT

SOURCE, INCLUDES VIDEO OF TRUMP .

 

The U.S. military has begun a hasty exit from Syria’s northern city of Manbij, and is set to help Russia establish itself there amid a Turkish attempt to defeat Kurdish-led, Pentagon-backed fighters at the strategic location, Newsweek has learned.

The U.S. was scheduled as of Monday to officially withdraw from Manbij within 24-hours, leaving the mostly Kurdish Syrian Democratic Forces behind as two rival factions—the Syrian government, backed by Russia and Iran, and the Turkey-backed Syrian insurgents opposed to it—sought to seize control of the strategic location. A senior Pentagon official told Newsweek that U.S. personnel, “having been in the area for longer, has been assisting the Russian forces to navigate through previously unsafe areas quickly.”

“It is essentially a handover,” the official said. “However, it’s a quick out, not something that will include walk-throughs, etc., everything is about making out with as much as possible of our things while destroying any sensitive equipment that cannot be moved.”

[MY NOTE: MOVE OR DESTROY EVERYTHING…EXCEPT FOR 50 NUKES WE LET TURKEY HAVE!!]

Here’s What Trump Said to Ukraine’s President

White House has released a 5-page memo summarizing the call

SOURCE .

The White House on Wednesday released a five-page memo summarizing the July 25 call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. The AP shies away from using the word “transcript,” and the Washington Post explains that what was released “is a memorandum of a telephone conversation and is not a verbatim account of the conversation” in keeping with White House practice; it pulls from the notes and recollections of those who were in the Situation Room. You can read the document in full here, which reflects what CNBC reports was a 30-minute call. It begins with Trump congratulating the newly elected Zelensky on his “great victory” and “terrific job.” Trump then goes on to bring up Rudy Giuliani, Attorney General Barr, and Joe Biden. Here’s his explicit mention of Biden:

  • “There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it. … It sounds horrible to me.”
  • Background here: After taking the lead for the US in the country during the Obama administration, Joe Biden in 2016 called for Ukraine’s general prosecutor to be booted in favor of someone more aggressive. Trump and Giuliani have claimed he was trying to stop an investigation into Burisma Group, which Hunter Biden was on the board of.
  • Zelensky replies to Trump by saying the new prosecutor he appoints “will look into the situation, specifically to the company that you mentioned in this issue.”

  • Trump then said, “I will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call and I am also going to have Attorney General Barr call and we will get to the bottom of it. I’m sure you will figure it out. I heard the prosecutor was treated very badly and he was a very fair prosecutor so good luck with everything. Your economy is going to get better and better I predict. You have a lot of assets. It’s a great country. I have many Ukrainian friends, their [sic] incredible people.”
  • CNN reports DOJ rep Kerri Kupec has stated that at no time following the call did Trump talk to Barr “about having Ukraine investigate anything relating to former Vice President Biden or his son.” She continued, “The President has not asked the Attorney General to contact Ukraine—on this or any other matter. The Attorney General has not communicated with Ukraine—on this or any other subject. Nor has the Attorney General discussed this matter, or anything relating to Ukraine, with Rudy Giuliani.”
  • The Wall Street Journal notes that early on in the call Trump emphasized how good the US has been to Ukraine, unlike European countries. “We spend a lot of effort and a lot of time,” he said.
  • But the Journal and Politico report the memo shows Trump made no reference, implied or explicit, to the US aid he had put on hold a week prior.
  • Hillary Clinton responded to the release with a tweet in favor of impeachment: “The president of the United States has betrayed our country. That’s not a political statement—it’s a harsh reality, and we must act. He is a clear and present danger to the things that keep us strong and free. I support impeachment.”
  • And from Trump himself on Twitter: “Will the Democrats apologize after seeing what was said on the call with the Ukrainian President? They should, a perfect call – got them by surprise!”

Trump’s Envoy to Ukraine Quits Amid Whistleblower Hubbub

Kurt Volker steps down after Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani says they were in frequent contact

In this Sept. 15, 2018, file photo, US special representative to Ukraine Kurt Volker is seen in Kyiv, Ukraine.

Kurt Volker, a former US ambassador to NATO caught in the middle of a whistleblower complaint over President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, resigned Friday from his post as special envoy to the Eastern European nation, according to a US official. The official said Volker told Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday of his decision to leave the job, following disclosures that he’d connected Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani with Ukrainian officials to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his family over allegedly corrupt business dealings, per the AP. Giuliani has said he was in frequent contact with Volker about his efforts…

Volker was brought into the Trump administration by former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to serve as envoy for Ukraine. He worked in a volunteer capacity and had retained his job as head of the John McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University. Arizona State’s student newspaper was the first to report his resignation. (Read more envoy stories.)

He expressed “[deep] concern” about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s “effort to potentially interfere with witnesses” who are set to appear before House committees, per the Guardian
  • Schiff said he wanted to make it “abundantly clear” that any effort by Pompeo, President Trump, or anyone else to interfere “will be considered as evidence of obstruction” and that any effort to block witnesses from coming forward to testify “will create an adverse inference that those allegations are correct.” Schiff added, “We are proceeding deliberately, but at the same time we feel a real sense of urgency.”
  • As for the new subpoena, it’s directed toward acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney. It requests 13 separate batches of documents related to a July phone call that Trump had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and related matters. The Oversight panel will issue the subpoena in coordination with the House intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees, Cummings said.
  • The action came as House and Senate staff prepared to meet with the State Department’s inspector general on Wednesday. A State Department invitation to the meeting, which was reviewed by the AP, requested an “urgent” meeting with staff from eight House and Senate panels.
  • The invitation said only that the inspector general, Steve Linick, “would like to discuss and provide staff with copies of documents related to the State Department and Ukraine.” The documents were obtained from the State Department’s acting legal adviser, according to the email.

He’s either an active Russian Agent or he’s what people in the Company refer to as a ‘Useful Idiot’. Someone who thinks he’s getting what he wants, while actually giving them everything they want. Trump is a useful idiot. But that doesn’t make him any less of a traitor. That he would solicit the Ukraine (a former Soviet puppet) to interfere in the 2020 election at the same time he’s under investigation for Russian interference with the 2016 election really drives home the extreme arrogance underlying his idiocy…Trump knows he’s going to be impeached but it makes a difference to him whether he is impeached for, say, being a Russian agent, or whether it’s for these bogus international Biden investigations.

And I think it matters to a lot of people in Washington as well. If he goes as a Russian agent, there it is for the history books, and it’s a Russian victory for them as well.

Working that out, that’s what I suspect is going on behind the scenes.

Iran and North Korea’s Nuclear Threat Increasing. Coincidence or Cooperation?

Iran. If their “Death To America” chants and latest missile launches weren’t enough, we now have North Korea’s nuclear threat increasing. As a result of their recent nuclear test, our Dear Leader has “condemned” Pyongyang, however, he did not do the same with Tehran. Both of these isolationist countries are advancing their nuclear tech at an alarming rate. What I find more alarming, though, is that most major news outlets don’t even beg to question that the two nations are working together.

Let’s start with the year 2007. An article from The Daily Mail nodded at the 2002 State Of The Union speech where George Bush had said Iran and North Korea formed an “axis of evil” along with Iraq. They had, at that point in time, been seeking plans for over a decade to be a state sponsor for terrorism. Now, fast forward almost fifteen years later. Iran has been planning and making deals with North Korea for over two decades…

Donald Trump’s claim that the United States has “no idea” who is behind recent email hacks is just not true.

The fact-checking website Politifact says Hillary Clinton is correct when she says 17 federal intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia is behind the hacking.

“We have 17, 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military who have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyber attacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin. And they are designed to influence our election. I find that deeply disturbing,” Clinton said during Wednesday’s presidential debate in Las Vegas.

Trump pushed back, saying that Clinton and the United States had “no idea whether it is Russia, China or anybody else.” [MY NOTE: What?!! 17 of the best Intel agencies in the world ALL AGREE that the hacking WAS DONE BY RUSSIA and you/Trump say the “U.S. had NO idea”?!!! THAT is a LIE, and your always siding with Putin/Russia IS TREASON!]

Intelligence Director Says Agencies Agree on Russian Meddling

SOURCE .

…The “three or four” agencies referred to by Trump are the CIA, the FBI, the National Security Agency and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, all of which were named in a January public report assessing with “high confidence” that Russia interfered in the election.

Other intelligence agencies, such as the U.S. Coast Guard’s, were not involved, Coats said. But, he added, there was no disagreement inside the intelligence community.

============

AND LET’S NOT FORGET JUST HOW PUBLIC TRUMP’S SIDING WITH PUTIN AND RUSSIA HAVE BEEN:

Trump sides with Russia against FBI at Helsinki summit

16 July 2018

SOURCE .

US President Donald Trump has defended Russia over claims of interference in the 2016 presidential election.

After face-to-face talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mr Trump contradicted US intelligence agencies and said there had been no reason for Russia to meddle in the vote.

Mr Putin reiterated that Russia had never interfered in US affairs.

The two men held nearly two hours of closed-door talks in the Finnish capital Helsinki on Monday.

Before we get to the NEW News, let’s look at the recent whistleblower #1…

A true Texas Conservative, not the Trump butt kissin’ kind like Ted Cruz, Heath Mayo of “Principles First/Principles Matter” conducted indepth analysis of what has been revealed, so far, by the FIRST Whistleblower:

Heath Mayo
@HeathMayo

Reviewed the materials released by the House Committees’ from Amb. Volker testimony and, on a close read, they are more devastating for the White House than even the reporting suggests. Let’s walk through both Volker’s testimony & then the corroborating texts…

Image

First: who is Volker? He’s the former US Rep for Ukraine Negotiations & he resigned a week ago after news of the July 25 call btw Trump & Zelenskyy broke. These are his words—and he immediately rebukes the whole Deep State nonsense right out of the gate. No “spies” or “treason”.

Image

He then frames the entire affair as his dogged effort to “fix a problem as best he could.” He also goes out of his way to highlight that *he* was focused on US national security interests. It’s almost like he thinks the evidence might lead us to question that fact.

Image

So what problem was Volker fixing? “A negative narrative about Ukraine, fueled by assertions made by” Lutsenko, that reached the President and “impeded our ability to support” Ukraine. This is an admission that Trump’s belief in conspiracies & Biden charges influenced US policy.

Image

Then, Volker moves into CYA mode. He disavows knowledge of anything related to Biden—but the revealed text messages suggest otherwise. Indeed, “Burisma” which was clearly code for “Biden” appears routinely throughout, as we’ll see. Read this! Volker clearly knows this smelled.

Image

Finally—Volker goes to great pains to make it clear that he actively opposed withholding aid to Ukraine, along with the rest of practically the entire US national security and foreign policy apparatus. Trump injured American interests to pressure Ukraine into doing his bidding.

Image

The entire Giuliani section makes it clear that he & Trump were undermining the judgment of State officials on Ukraine. And Biden was all over this thing. Burisma clearly equaled investigating Biden throughout. Oh, also—Volker says claims against Biden are bogus.

Image

Listen to Volker’s own assessment of Trump’s inability to even grasp the impact of changing circumstances in Ukraine after the election. This is scary, folks. The President is just dense. He doesn’t understand things and thinks other countries are “trying to take him down.”

Image

Then, in the section of testimony about the Rudy/Yermak tango, Volker discusses negotiations over an official statement that Trump/Rudy wanted Zelenskyy to deliver re: investigating “Burisma & 2016,” presumably to create bad press for Biden. Rudy made repeated demands. Shameful.

Image

Now — let’s move to the smoking guns: the text messages between various players in this shakedown. These are really the nail in the coffin—Volker’s testimony just reinforces how bad this thing was for US interests in Ukraine & his damning feelings & guilt over what occurred.

Image

Thankfully—some of these are so bad, we can cut right to the chase: Here’s Volker advising Yermak about the quid pro quo. Zelenskyy had to convince Trump he would investigate in order to secure a meeting with Trump. This was BEFORE the call.

Quid. Quo. It’s all there.

Image

Need more evidence? Try this from Ambassador Bill Taylor who made clear that’s exactly what he was gathering from the situation. Sondland — who plays the role of yes-man in all this—won’t put things in text. He knows he can’t memorialize the truth.

Image

Bill Taylor doesn’t give in. He’s pissed. Why? Because withholding the aid is playing right into the Russian’s hands. The move was un-American—and they knew it.

Image

Finally—this kicker closes things out. Bill Taylor is furious that aid was withheld and progress in Ukraine stalled “for help with a political campaign.” Sondland unmoved. Notice, after Taylor speaks truth, Sondland takes 5 hrs to compile a legal treatise denying the suggestion.

Image

This was just the *first* witness. This new evidence, combined w/ the July 25 call summary & the WB complaint, makes it abundantly clear that it was common knowledge for officials that a quid pro quo existed whereby Z would agree to investigate Biden for US aid & access. Period.

==================

Now to the NEW News… The 2nd Whistleblower…

Rick Wilson
@TheRickWilson

Just a reminder: it never gets better.

The New York Times

Breaking News: A second official with more direct information about President Trump and Ukraine is said be considering whether to file a whistle-blower complaint…

SOURCE .

A second whistleblower on Trump and Ukraine might be coming forward

The New York Times reported that another official is considering making a whistleblower complaint against the president.

The second whistleblower is one of the officials that intelligence community inspector general Michael Atkinson interviewed to corroborate claims made in the initial complaint, according to the Times. Federal law would protect the whistleblower from retaliation, since he’s cooperating with the inspector general.

A second whistleblower with a more intimate familiarity with the events could bolster the allegations against Trump amid pushback from the president and his allies. But it’s important to remember that key allegations from the first whistleblower have already been confirmed by the White House itself and text messages released by the State Department.

We know that the first whistleblower was right about a lot…

=======================

So, let me wrap this up with a quote from a Patriot on Twitter:

THIS is where we are. THIS is who and what America is now.

Yes. We were ONCE a great, good, Godly, Christian nation.

Yes. We still have many REAL praying and discerning Christians in America who weep and pray over what has been growing IN America at least since 1962.

BUT how much longer will The Thrice Holy God put up with America’s wickedness, murder/abortion, lies, fraud, corruption, and depravity can NOT be much longer…or God would must needs apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.

To all real and true Christians who have a broken and discerning heart…pray, pray, pray.

REPENTANCE AND TURNING 100% TO JESUS IS, ALWAYS HAS BEEN, ALWAYS WILL BE…THE ONLY ANSWER.

 -Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

 

FORMULA FOR DEFEAT: THE “WHY?” EDITION

Here we go again…Conservatives, many ONLY so-called/faux Conservatives waving, the white flag of surrender…yeah…again.

HISTORIC PRELUDE.

Waaay back in 1980 there was a real Conservative who actually ran on un-watered down Conservatism…and WON A LANDSLIDE VICTORY for The Presidency. He governed, talk, acted, and behaved as a Conservative, and four years later…won by a larger landslide. This “mythological creature’s” name? RONALD WILSON REAGAN.

He walked, talked, acted, behaved, joked, governed, and WON as a Conservative.

AND WON.

But since then…

[NOTE: some of these were good men, meant well, but were NOT Conservative, NOR did they run, act, or talk like a Conservative, with the possible exception of ONE.]

GEORGE H. W. BUSH- MODERATE, AT BEST; SERVED AS VP UNDER REAGAN; TRIED TO TALK AS A CONSERVATIVE, BUT GOVERNED AS A MODERATE-TO-LIBERAL.

BOB DOLE- MOSTLY CONSERVATIVE; BUT WOULD/COULD NOT PRESENT CONSERVATISM IN AN A WAY THAT APPEALED TO THE MASS OF VOTERS; WOULD NOT GO ON THE OFFENSE DURING CAMPAIGN; NEGOTIATOR, BUT NOT A LEADER.

GEORGE W. BUSH- MODERATE AT BEST; TARP AND BAILOUTS, VERY LIBERAL; NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND, VERY LIBERAL. MAY HAVE MEANT WELL, BUT NOT CONSERVATIVE.

JOHN  McCAIN- MODERATE AT BEST; OFTEN ATTACKED CONSERVATIVES AND CONSERVATISM; WOULD TALK/CAMPAIGN AS A “CONSERVATIVE”, GOVERN AS A LEFT-OF-CENTER “MODERATE”; WAS UNORGANISED, AND UNWILLING TO GO ON OFFENSE DURING CAMPAIGN; WOULD/COULD NOT DEFEND OR PRESENT CONSERVATISM IN A MANNER THAT WAS APPEALING.

MITT ROMNEY- MODERATE-TO-CONSERVATIVE; HONORABLE MAN, MOSTLY CONSERVATIVE; SMART, LEVEL HEADED, GREAT ORGANISER; MOSTLY PRESENTED AND RAN ON CONSERVATISM; WAY TOO MANY “CONSERVATIVE” VOTERS GOT HUNG UP ON MITT’S RELIGION, RATHER THAN ON THE FACT(S) HE WAS AN HONEST, HONORABLE, SMART, AND, MOSTLY CONSERVATIVE MAN; WOULD NOT GO ON OFFENCE DURING CAMPAIGN.

TRUMP- HARD-LEFT/HARD CORE NY LIBERAL THAT’S CLOUDED, SHROUDED, AND FOGGED OVER BY LIES, CONS, FRAUD, PERJURY, DECEIT, EGO, PROMISES/DEAL MAKING, AND GENERAL TWO-FACED CORRUPTION; HAS SIDED WITH AMERICA’S ENEMIES AGAINST AMERICA, AGAINST AMERICAN INTEL, AGAINST AMERICAN INTERESTS, AND AGAINST AMERICAN ALLIES; ALL WHILE ATTACKING AMERICAN MEDIA, CONSERVATIVE DISSENT, LIBERAL DISSENT, THE CONSTITUTION, THE ECONOMY, AND OUR ALLIES; HAS A HISTORY GOING BACK TO THE ’70’S OF “MAKING DEALS’ WITH; THE MAFIA, PUTIN-RUSSIA, N. KOREA-UN, CHINA-HU, SAUDI ARABIA-SAUD, UKRAINE-ZELENSKY; THESE “DEALS” INVOLVE EVERYTHING FROM DOING LITERALLY WHATEVER IT TAKES TO MAKE TRUMP $$$ OR GET PRESTIGE, TO OUTRIGHT SELLING OUT AMERICAN, AND TREASON.

Which brings us to NOW…

Just yesterday (9-24-19) I had a lengthy discussion with several ( I believe) Conservatives.

The topic?

THEM: “We need to mobilise and vote Democrat to get rid of Trump. And then in the next 2 to 4 years vote in Conservatives.”

ME:
The way to defeat Liberalism is NOT with more or “other” Liberalism.

You do NOT put out a fire pouring gasoline on it and adding more fuel.

IF those who claim Conservatism would spend as much time, energy, money, thought, and effort into presenting, proclaiming, and mobilising FOR CONSERVATISM AND CONSERVATIVES WE WOULD HAVE CONSERVATIVES AND CONSERVATISM.

WHY are (so-called) Conservatives ONLY energised, motivated, and mobilised to appeal to, campaign for, and elect LIBERALS?!!

What is WRONG with them?!!

They say they are Conservative.

They say they want Conservatism.

Aaannndd then push to elect LIBERALS!!!

THAT is a level of asinine-ery that there is NO measurement for!

IF YOU ARE A REAL CONSTITUTION-BASED, LIBERTY LOVING, SMALL AS POSSIBLE GOVERNMENT, GUT TAXES AND SPENDING CONSERVATIVE THEN…

Then act like a Conservative.

Talk like a Conservative. 

Behave like a Conservative.

Vote like a Conservative, meaning VOTE FOR CONSERVATIVES.

Organise, mobilise, present, proclaim, and appeal TO Conservatives and Conservatism.

ALL ELSE IS LIBERALISM AND BEING A LIBERAL. PERIOD. END OF DISCUSSION. CRAP!

This IS basic common-sense. It (once) didn’t NEED to be spelled out this clearly. And shouldn’t have to be broke down like this TODAY!

But we have far too many who are pretend, faux, so-called “Conservatives”. These are traitors, turncoats, backstabbers, and two-faced cons and liars who spend their time, energy, $$$, and efforts presenting and defending Liberals and Liberalism; all while BOTH 1. clouding over/muddying the issue(s), and 2) Performing Defend-N-Deflect, Smoke-N-Mirrors, Bait-N-Switch attacks on REAL Conservatives.

Add to that toxic, treasonous mix the clueless, spineless, weak (possibly) real Conservatives and you have THE REASON Commie, Jackass, Traitors like Trump can get elected…maybe even re-elected!!

THE CONCLUSION.

This is ONLY to/for those who ARE REAL Conservatives:

  1. BE CONSERVATIVE.
  2. STAY CONSERVATIVE.
  3. STAY ON MESSAGE WITH PRESENTING CONSERVATISM.
  4. STAY ON MESSAGE WITH APPEALING TO CONSERVATISM & CONSERVATIVES.
  5. STAY ON MESSAGE WITH DEFENDING, DEFINING, AND EXPLAINING CONSERVATISM.
  6. STAY ON MESSAGE WITH POINTING OUT THE STARK DIFFERENCES BETWEEN CONSERVATISM AND LIBERALISM.
  7. MOBILISE CONSERVATIVES.
  8. MOBILISE FOR CONSERVATISM.
  9. VOTE CONSERVATIVE.
  10. TALK CONSERVATIVE.
  11. BE CONSERVATIVE.

Conservatism and Liberalism have already long been defined. 

This is Conservatism , and HERE .

This is Liberalism , and HERE .

ONLY 2 groups of people can not/will not see the VAST DIFFERENCE between the two:

  1. THE STUPID.
  2. THE LIAR.

-Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer.

 

What Is It Going To Take?

JUST WHAT WILL IT TAKE FOR THE CONSTITUTIONAL RESTRAINTS ON A LAWLESS PRESIDENT TO HAVE HAD ENOUGH AND DO SOMETHING ALREADY?!!

I am far from the only one who wishes, wants, begs, even DEMANDS that Congress, The Courts, somebody with The Constitutional authority to DO something would just get off their butt or soap-box and, then, DO WHAT IT TAKES TO STOP THIS MADDENING, TREASONOUS DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA!!

Here is but one of the tens of millions of Patriots who express their frustration at Trump’s treason, fraud, corruption, lies, perjury, obstruction of justice, and the general selling out of America…listen to them as they describe an all too familiar pattern:

Wendy Wood
@WWoodUK

Here we go again…

Major evidence of Trump’s treasonous acts.

Pelosi, & other Dems express their outrage, (do nothing. My edit.)

Slight pause by Trump minions and GOP

-until…

Narrative is owned by Trump, Minions, GOP, FoxNews.

Rinse, Repeat.

I Am Sick Of This!!

#ImpeachTrumpNow

=========

Logical reasons why Trump should NOT ever be President:

  1. TRUMPS NOT FIT FOR ANY OFFICE. NOT DOG CATCHER OF HOOTERVILLE, KENTUCKY, LET ALONE PRESIDENT. Lies. Perjury. Fraud. Lack of civility. Lack of being SERIOUS about The Constitutional Duties and Responsibilities of being President. Total lack of education, intelligence, wisdom, discretion, and the discernment to BE President. He is rash, brash, crass, volatile, vile, vulgar, crude, rude, impudent, ill tempered, prone to snap judgments based on his instincts and gut feelings, and a depraved loudmouth jerk. Simply: Trump is NOT fit emotionally, mentally, NOR morally to be President.
  2. TRUMP SHOULD NEVER BE PRESIDENT BASED ON HIS DO WHATEVER IT TAKES (for him) TO WIN- AMERICAN AND EVERYONE ELSE BE SCREWED. Trump didn’t need to be blackmailed into conspiring with Putin. Trump is so vile, so moralless, and so completely about HIMSELF that he’d throw America, friends, even family under the bus to get what HE wants. Trump’s utter depravity made him the PERFECT mark and puppet for Putin, Kim Jung Un, Hu, and the Saudi Royal family. America’s worst enemies simply flatter, and offer him a token gift…and “BOOM!” they have whatever they want in return: elections, control of our economy, control of our Intel Community, and control over our military. THEY call the shots. NOT Congress, and certainly NOT “We The People”, NOR The Constitution. Simply: Trump is NOT honest, NOR has the integrity, and character to be President.
  3. TRUMP, BY HIS VERY NATURE, IS A FRAUD, A LIAR, AND A CON MAN. HE IS WILLING TO SELL OUT AMERICA, FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO GET WHAT HE WANTS. From Comey to Sessions to Mueller to Michael Cohen…to…who’s next?!! Trump doesn’t give a flying rat’s backside who or what he tramples to get what he wants, and to save his hide…it’s ALL about Trump with Trump.

So, in these three categories we can then place mountains of abuses and crimes by Trump Inc. …and the “Fake News” HAS filled each quite well…so far to NO avail.

Here is my own personal research and evidence:

What are you doing right now? Remember it. For the rest of your life that will be the answer when you’re asked what you did when the President of the United States solicited an attack on America.

I’m the Senator who blocked efforts to hold him accountable.

I’m the congressional representative who attacked the whistleblower.

I’m the craven politician who hid under my desk.

I’m the reporter who uncritically amplified the discredited claim about Trump’s rival.

I normalized his conduct.

I criticized those sounding the alarm for being hyperbolic.

I’m the frog who feel asleep as the water temperature rose.”

I went after some other shining thing he dangled.”

I told everyone there’s nothing we can do.

“I watched the republic die.”

Folks, you’re fine. Unless you’re in Congress or the media, the only item in that list for you was not telling others there’s nothing they can do. But here’s a thing you can do: Make sure reporters and Congress know that this is the red line. Flood both with messages and tweets!

Our voices matter now more than ever. We will flood the phones. Today, and Monday, and Tuesday, we must call the Congressional Switchboard at 202-224-3121.

Things could move quickly now. Why? Friday’s news that Trump asked the president of Ukraine eight times during a phone call to investigate his political rival, clearly in exchange for military funding for protection from Russia. This is criminal. It’s impeachable.

Another Patriot asked:

Seriously is there ever a point at which Cruz, Cotton, Sasse etc say: “I’m defending a traitor here. This has to stop.”?

If This Isn’t Impeachable, Nothing Is

 

Money is seen in the back pocket of U.S. President Donald Trump as he boards Air Force One.

The president of the United States reportedly sought the help of a foreign government against an American citizen who might challenge him for his office. This is the single most important revelation in a scoop by The Wall Street Journal, and if it is true, then President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office immediately.

Until now, there was room for reasonable disagreement over impeachment as both a matter of politics and a matter of tactics. The Mueller report revealed despicably unpatriotic behavior by Trump and his minions, but it did not trigger a political judgment with a majority of Americans that it warranted impeachment. The Democrats, for their part, remained unwilling to risk their new majority in Congress on a move destined to fail in a Republican-controlled Senate.

Now, however, we face an entirely new situation. In a call to the new president of Ukraine, Trump reportedly attempted to pressure the leader of a sovereign state into conducting an investigation—a witch hunt, one might call it—of a U.S. citizen, former Vice President Joe Biden, and his son Hunter Biden.

As the Ukrainian Interior Ministry official Anton Gerashchenko told the Daily Beast when asked about the president’s apparent requests, “Clearly, Trump is now looking for kompromat to discredit his opponent Biden, to take revenge for his friend Paul Manafort, who is serving seven years in prison.”

===

Crikey! What Trump asked for on live tv in a national debate with Hillary Clinton, he NOW is repeating against Biden in a private phone call!!!!! 

Will ANYONE step forward and STOP this TREASON??!!!

===============================

So, let me close as I opened by asking:

What’s it going to take to DO something to remove Trump and Co. from their offices and positions?!!

COLON KRAPERNICK

PICTURE ABOVE OF A LIBERAL JACKASS, I KNOW, REDUNDANT.

 

PROLOGUE.

Due to moving A LOT, BEING A PREACHER’S KID, growing up tall fast, having a long/funny last name, having crew cuts in the late ’60’s-’70’s when my friends were going hippie…here is my personal experience at “oppression and bigotry” :

  1. was “the new kid”, an outsider, much of my life,
  2. was called names due my long, German/”funny” last name,
  3. was mocked for being a PK,
  4. because I was tall, but scrawny, bullies targeted me,
  5. because I was growing tall fast (was 6 ft. tall in 6th grade) I was constantly out-growing my jeans/pants, hence was mocked for wearing “high waters”, and getting ready for the flood,
  6. was daily called stupid, dummy, idiot, dork, nerd, jerk, loser…and those are the non-profanity laced names I was called,
  7. got beat up almost daily,
  8. had my belongings, bike, and possessions vandalised,
  9. had as many as 8-10 sports jocks meet me at my locker to take turns insulting and hitting me,
  10. was NEVER included in any parties, events, anything,
  11. was always blamed for whatever went wrong, even if it was not possible for me to be the blame…

So, there you have it. I was “oppressed”.

Now a closer look at Colon Krapernick, aka Colin Kaepernick.

Kaepernick was born in 1987 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Heidi Russo, who was white.[6][7] His birth father, who was African-American, separated from Russo before Kaepernick was born.[8][9][10] Russo placed Kaepernick for adoption with a white couple named Rick and Teresa Kaepernick. The couple who had two older children, son Kyle and daughter Devon. The Kaepernicks decided to adopt a boy after losing two other sons to heart defects.[8][11][12]

Kaepernick lived in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin until age four when his family moved to California.[13][14] When he was eight years old, Kaepernick began playing youth football as a defensive end and punter. At age nine, he was the starting quarterback on his youth team, and he completed his first pass for a long touchdown.[13] A 4.0 GPA student[15] at John H. Pitman High School in Turlock, California, Kaepernick played football, basketball and baseball and was nominated for All-State selection in all three sports his senior year. He was the Most Valuable Player (MVP) of the Central California Conference in football, leading his school to its first-ever playoff victory. In basketball, he was a first-team all CCC selection at forward and led his 16th-ranked team to a near upset of #1 ranked Oak Ridge High School in the opening round of playoffs. In that game, Kaepernick scored 34 points but future NBA player Ryan Anderson of Oak Ridge scored 50 points to lead his team to a victory.[16]

Kaepernick started his college career at Nevada playing in 11 of the team’s 13 games. He finished the season with nineteen passing touchdowns, three interceptions, and 2,175 passing yards with a 53.8% completion percentage.[17] Kaepernick also added 593 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns as the Nevada Wolf Pack finished 6-7.[18]

Kaepernick played college football for the University of Nevada where he was named the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) Offensive Player of the Year twice and became the only player in NCAA Division I FBS history to amass 10,000 passing yards and 4,000 rushing yards in a career. After graduating, he was selected by the San Francisco 49ers in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Kaepernick began his professional football career as a backup quarterback to Alex Smith, and became the 49ers’ starter in the middle of the 2012 season after Smith suffered a concussion. He then remained the team’s starting quarterback for the rest of the season, leading the team to their first Super Bowl appearance since 1994. During the 2013 season, his first full season as a starter, Kaepernick helped the 49ers reach the NFC Championship Game. Over the next three seasons, Kaepernick lost and won back his starting job, with the 49ers missing the playoffs for three years consecutively.

Kaepernick was baptized Methodistconfirmed Lutheran, and attended a Baptist church during his college years.[104] Kaepernick spoke about his faith saying, “I think God guides me through every day and helps me take the right steps and has helped me to get to where I’m at.”[105] Kaepernick has multiple tattoos about his faith. His right arm features a scroll with the Bible verse Psalm 18:39 written on it. Tattooed under the scroll are praying hands with the phrase “To God The Glory” written on them. To the left of both the scroll and praying hands is the word “Faith” written vertically. His left arm features a Christian cross with the words “Heaven Sent” on it referring to Jesus Christ. Written above and below the cross is the phrase “God Will Guide Me”. Written to the left and right of the cross is the Bible verse Psalm 27:3.[106][107][108]

Kaepernick reportedly started dating radio personality and television host Nessa Diab in July 2015,[109] and officially went public about their relationship in February 2016.[110]

[NOTE: Nessa Diad is a Black Muslim, and leader in the Liberal, Militant “Black Lives Matter” group that implements socialism, America-hatred, racism, and violence as part of the S.O.P. Shortly after Colon began dating Muslim woman, Nessa Diad, he began his Anti-American bullying tactics and spreading the Liberal LIES of “oppression”…AND became a vegan, see below.]

Kaepernick began following a vegan diet in late 2015.[111]

ALSO, IMMEDIATELY AFTER hooking up with the Muslim, Black Lives Matter, Socialist Activist, Colon began his idiotic jihad:
In the 49ers third preseason game of the 2016 season, Kaepernick was noticed sitting down during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner” as opposed to the tradition of standing. During a post-game interview, he explained his position stating, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder”, referencing a series of African-American deaths caused by law enforcement that led to the Black Lives Matter movement and adding that he would continue to protest until he feels like “[the American flag] represents what it’s supposed to represent”.[72][73][74]

In July 2019, Nike, Inc. released a shoe featuring the Betsy Ross flag called the Air Max 1 Quick Strike Fourth of July trainers. The trainers were designed to celebrate Independence Day. The model was subsequently withdrawn after Colin Kaepernick told the brand he and others found the flag offensive because they associated it with slavery.[86][87][88] J

TIME FOR FACTS AND REAL HISTORY.

  1. THERE HAS BEEN NO SLAVERY IN THE U.S. SINCE 1865, WHITE PEOPLE FOUGHT A WAR TO FREE THE SLAVES.
  2. THE BETSY ROSS FLAG WAS, AND IS, RIGHTLY ASSOCIATED WITH THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, A WAR FOR LIBERTY.
  3. COLON WAS NEVER OPPRESSED IN HIS LIFETIME ANYMORE THAN I WAS, SEE PROLOGUE.
  4. COLON WAS, AND  IS, RATHER RICH AND PRIVILEGED…AND WRONG AND STUPID.
  5. COLON WAS NEVER A SLAVE. NO BLACKS, NO “PEOPLE OF COLOR”, HAVE BEEN SLAVES IN AMERICA SINCE 1865.
  6. THERE ARE NO SLAVE OWNERS ALIVE…ANYWHERE IN AMERICA.
  7. THIS IS NOTHING OTHER THAN MARXISM, DELUSION, LIES, AND FRAUD…AGAIN, I UNDERSTAND I’M BEING REDUNDANT.

SO there it is.
Colon Krapernick’s entire life as he  knows and lives it is a LIE. Yes, I called him names throughout…but that is NOT “oppression”, that is TRUTH IN LABELING.
