America: French Revolution Lessons

February 12, 2019

America: French Revolution Lessons.

I am posting an excellent authoritative review of conditions that preceded and unfolded during the historic French Revolution, starting in 1789 and ending in 1799. 

Most Americans have some awareness of the occurrence of this stunning and cataclysmic historic event. However, it is likely that very few understand the many social, economic, political, religious and cultural factors that were involved in this bloody implosion of France. 

I have read about the French Revolution in numerous places. But, never have I encountered the vivid cascade of historical details of the French Revolution in the way that author James Watkins has provided in his 2016 article on this topic.

James Watkins writes with an unflinchingly detailed style that almost drags the reader into the terrifying events of this human catastrophe. Yet, Watkins artistically writes in a way that does not sacrifice a rigorous scholarly treatment of the French Revolution. 

This article is an important work not because I believe America is poised to under-go a French-like Revolution.

It is important because many similar elements of decline are now increasingly apparent in our own socioculture. There are enough similarities to spark intelligent concern that our Founding Father’s America may not long endure.

Please give James Watkins’ article a thoughtful review and see what you think.

Take note of the economic problems that France faced at the time of its great revolution; corruption, widespread sexual licentiousness, sociopathic personalities of the revolutionaries and anarchists, atheism, persecution and murder of believers and clergy, and the spread of superstitious beliefs within the population.

See that a small cadre of leader’s gave many speeches to citizens that were designed to raise their emotional passions against “traitors”. Traitors were defined as, among other things; the rich, intellectuals, influential people and anyone who was identified as opposed to the revolution and its egalitarian/communist ideology. 

Finally, do not over-look that in the end, the revolution consumed itself with the murder of approximately 300,000 citizens; including many of its own revolutionary leaders.

America: “If I Were the Devil”

February 8, 2019

America: “If I Were the Devil.”

One of my favorite American commentators was the amazing Mr. Paul Harvey. He was a soft but resounding voice in his day and during my relative period of youth. 

To me me his wisdom was astonishing, as it surly is in the following video. 

I hope you will agree. 

In any event, I delight in bringing Paul Harvey’s precient words to you in today’s posting.

I have also included a transcript of his presentation on the “prince of darkness” and how he would “take over the United States”. I hope you will copy and print this transcript and show it to many others in the future.

I believe his message will stimulate an unsettling, creepy sense of fear in most right-thinking Americans. 

It is now only a clear perception of reality; along with a rational, strong and abiding sense of fear that will motivate America to save itself at all ballot boxes in future city, state and national elections.

Please see this video. Then forward it to everyone you know.

“If I were the devil’: the 1965 warning from Paul Harvey that’s chilling……..

If I were the prince of darkness, I would want to engulf the whole world in darkness.

I’d have a third of its real estate and four-fifths of its population, but I would not be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree — thee.

So, I would set about however necessary to take over the United States.

I’d subvert the churches first, and I would begin with a campaign of whispers.

With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.”

To the young, I would whisper that the Bible is a myth. I would convince the children that man created God instead of the other way around. I’d confide that what’s bad is good and what’s good is square.

And the old, I would teach to pray after me, “Our Father, which are in Washington …”

Then, I’d get organized, I’d educate authors in how to make lurid literature exciting so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa.

I’d peddle narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills.

If I were the devil, I’d soon have families at war with themselves, churches at war with themselves and nations at war with themselves until each, in its turn, was consumed.

And with promises of higher ratings, I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flames.

If I were the devil, I would encourage schools to refine young intellect but neglect to discipline emotions. I’d tell teachers to let those students run wild. And before you knew it, you’d have drug-sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.

With a decade, I’d have prisons overflowing and judges promoting pornography. Soon, I would evict God from the courthouse and the schoolhouse and them from the houses of Congress.

In his own churches, I would substitute psychology for religion and deify science. I’d lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls and church money.

If I were the devil, I’d take from those who have and give to those who wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious.

What’ll you bet I couldn’t get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich?

If I were the devil I’d make the symbol of Easter and egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.

I would caution against extremes, in hard work, and patriotism, in moral conduct.

I’d convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging is more fun and that what you see on television is the way to be.

And thus, I could undress you in public and lure you into bed with diseases for which there are no cures.

In other words, if I were the devil, I’d just keep right on doing what he’s doing.”

Late-Term Baby Murder

February 2, 2019

Late-Term Baby Murder.

I will make this posting an easy one.

All you have to do is watch a series of short videos to get the  truth about the “Slippery Slope” of Roe vs Wade. Be sure to recognize sleazy deviousness of the defenders of late abortion practices and Planned Parenthood.

Regarding late-term abortions (i.e., murders). America’s radical-liberal democratic party is attacking our religions (i.e., “Thou Shalt Not Kill”), traditional families, and our babies.

Late-term abortions are only one example of a blizzard of morally and ethically depraved revolutionary attacks upon America by unprincipled radical leftist-liberals.

Below is a video expose’ of the radical-left’s savage attack upon America’s gestating and just-born, babies.

I ask you to be informed on this vital matter and do your best to stop this culturally destructive madness.

Please vote conservative. Vote the RINO’s and leftist radical-liberals out-of-office.

The Collapse of the Soviet Union: Lessons for America

January 30, 2019

The Collapse of the Soviet Union: Lessons for America.

I believe that America has not been in such great peril, as it is now, since our Civil War (1861-1865).

I further believe that a great many of our citizens have no idea of the gravity of America’s now rapidly escalating existential crisis.

You may recall the stunning news that the Soviet Union (The USSR) suddenly collapsed in August of 1991. It is critical to understand that the experts did not see the “last great revolution of the 20th Century” as unpredictable, as it was.

The experts still debate the causes of the sudden death of the Soviet Union, without identifying any specific cause. Instead they conclude it was a confluence of many factors whose synergistic effects produced the unpredictably sudden collapse of the Soviet Union.

The following article on this topic is most informative. I hope you will take the time to read it.

Everything You Think You Know About the Collapse of the Soviet Union Is Wrong

Some the interacting factors that correlated with the sudden Collapse of the Soviet Union were:

  • It was at the height of its power and extended influence in the world.
  • It had significant, but experts thought, “manageable” budget deficits.
  • It was experiencing inflation.
  • It had a protracted war with Afghanistan.
  • It expended much wealth, materials and human energy to influence other states in the world.
  • It was in a “Cold War” with America.
  • It was experiencing pressures from liberalizing forces from within.
  • Dissidents were clamoring for more freedom and dignity for the population.

Perhaps you can see some reasons for concern about the dynamics of stability (i.e., the viability) of the United States of America at this time in our history.

The following is a quote from the article above: “DELVING INTO THE causes of the French Revolution, de Tocqueville famously noted that regimes overthrown in revolutions tend to be less repressive than the ones preceding them.” 

America provides greater freedoms to its citizens than any other nation on earth. The radical liberalizing forces in America clamoring for more, more and more freedom and “dignity” have failed to understand that too much freedom for a society-to- survive is best called chaos! 

Sociocultural chaos is hell on earth, that tends to lead to more hell on earth.

Michigan: Stupid About Marijuana

Michigan: Stupid About Marijuana.

America is making one dumb legislative mistake after another. I believe that most folks have no “friggin-in-the-riggin”(Navy term) idea of how close America is to its own self-destruction.

The concern for this posting is both “medical marijuana” and its increasing legalization for recreational use.

I am deeply saddened that Michigan has now made marijuana legal for recreational use and is gearing-up to open retail outlets and cash-in on new tax revenues. 

I was born and raised in Michigan and most of my loved ones are there. Many of my family and friends are raising children and teens in Michigan. The legalization of marijuana is a great threat to the welfare of all Michiganders and also to those in contiguous states where marijuana use remains illegal. 

If you fail to read the following authoritative article you will remain oblivious to the great harms that the legalization of marijuana can visit upon you, your children, other loved ones and all of America.

Please be informed on this and other great issues of our time.

Think Walls Immoral? Then, So Are You.

January 27, 2019

Think Walls Immoral? Then, So Are You.

Gee, I am sorry to have to tell you this: But, if you think that an effective physical barrier to illegal immigration is Immoral…then that is exactly what you are!

It is real simple. Without a wall, plus all other possible safe-guards, America (Founded upon God’s Judeo/Christian principles) will be destroyed. Therefore, according to America’s Founding Morality, it would be a SIN to make this happen.

A very well-known historical destroyer of societies is called “CONQUEST BY IMMIGRATION”. I hope you will remember this phrase.

If you support this form of destruction of America, or any other, there is no better definition of your actions than IMMORAL.

If you are one of the immoral Americans supporting open borders, I am Sorry for “Screaming” at you, so-to-speak.

But it is time someone did!

The Future: An American Collapse?

January 24, 2019

The Future: An American Collapse?

No, I do not mean a collapse resembling the Incas in the Peruvian Highlands, or the Vikings in Greenland. The complete disappearance of a society.

I mean the decline and the transformation of America to something virtually unrecognizable from its former Constitutional Republic self. There will still remain a population and a state, likely a socialist state, headed in the direction of an increasingly authoritarian state using more and more coercive means to control the behavior of its population. A population that is increasingly agitated, to counter-aggression against its controlling class and generalized instability.

I beg you to take time to educate yourself about a summary of the current scientific research findings on the matter of the decline and collapse of societies around the world and throughout known history.

Can you identify any of the well-known variables that appear to mediate the historical decline, even the total collapse of  numerous other societies, now impacting America’s continuing decline? 

America is already well on its way to a tragic future. Can this be avoided?

If you have read the following article, it may not seem likely.

But, only history will know.
