The Real “Old-Time Religion”

People in the South who are intuitively attuned to its culture and history suspect that what passes for popular, evangelical religion in the region is not precisely what it has been in the past. Besides the fact that the South, like other parts of the country, is slowly giving in to the forces of secularism, those states from Maryland to Texas, and halfway up the Mississippi Valley, exhibit a kind of religion that is less distinguishable now, than earlier in their history, from New York, Minnesota, and California. The Crystal Cathedral in Anaheim, California, might just as well be in Atlanta. And the seeker-sensitive Willow Creek Community Church will find its imitators in Oklahoma City, Dallas, and New Orleans. The fundamentalist-liberal rift that once plagued Northern mainline Protestantism, now has its mirror image all across the South, especially in the Southern Baptist Convention.

In order to understand what has changed in the South, it is necessary to have clearly in view the kinds of disorders that the religious communities of the South, whether consciously and intentionally or unconsciously and intuitively, resisted. What they rejected at almost every significant point were three movements that had considerable impact in other parts of the country, and especially in the Northeast. These were (1) fundamentalism, (2) Puritanism, and (3) vulgar pantheism. All three of these have enjoyed some success in the United States, but until recently none of them have been favorably received in the South. That is not to say that they did not exist in the South: for each represents a kind of permanent temptation for all people everywhere. But each of them also represents something to which some cultures have developed a degree of resistance. The South has historically been somewhat resistant to the first, more resistant to the second, and until relatively recently almost untouched by the third….

It is worth mentioning that the very fact of the South’s brutal experience of war, and its humiliating defeat, played a part in that section’s resistance of a religious error that has otherwise seemed endemic to the United States. It is the same error to which ancient Israel was so prone: the belief that right religion would always triumph, and defeat is a sign of divine disfavor. This error belongs to the adolescence of religion, but not to its maturity, as the prophets Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, were to teach their people.

Southerners also had to deal with their own defeat and ruin, as well as with the eventual recognition of their own sins—even while the virtues of their oppressors were exaggerated and their sins ignored. Nevertheless, certain virtues can only come prominently into play under conditions that are mostly foreign to the bourgeois comforts of twentieth century America. Flannery O’Conner worried that Southerners were losing this sense of difference and alienation that has something in common with the very idea of holiness. She said once, “The Anguish that most of us have observed for some time now has been caused not by the fact that the South is alienated from the rest of the country, but by the fact that it is not alienated enough, that everyday we are getting more and more like the rest of the country, that we are being forced out, not only of our many sins but of our few virtues.”

With the Paris Attack the European Civil War Just Began

The colonization of Europe by tens of millions of Muslims is on a scale unmatched in human history—except by the colonization of North America by Europeans.

Most countries in Western Europe today face a large, angry, separatist population in their midst committed to outfacing, outbreeding, and finally outvoting their foolishly generous hosts.

Will Europe in 100 years be like New England, a place fully inhabited by a radically new population, with places that bear trace names of vanished tribes like the Abenakis, the Pequots, the English, the French?

Will young residents of the Islamic Republic based in Paris read romance novels about the exotic aborigines who first built those gothic mosques for use as churches? Will they visit them on reservations?

We will soon find out. The blatant attack in broad daylight on a major magazine by masked men carrying Kalashnikovs in the middle of Paris is not an act of terrorism.

It is an act of civil war. If France does not respond to this attack by ultranationalist, Jew-hating militarists with all the fervor of its heroic Resistance fighters in 1944, it will lose its freedom instantly. There will be de facto Sharia censorship over the press all through France—and all through Europe.

The game will be over—Europeans might as well go ahead and convert to Islam already, and save themselves the pain….

My hope is that, as usual, Muslims have overplayed their hand. Just as they launched attacks on Israel full of hubris that ended in disaster, I suspect that the chest-thumping bearded radical clerics of Europe have overestimated their own strength, and Europe’s weakness. When the French vote for their next president, they will remember Charlie Hebdo, and elect the National Front.

Had the Islamists waited 30 years—or if we give them another 30 years—when the native population of Europe had shrunk still further, and the last survivors of Nazi occupation had all passed away, I think that the Islamic takeover of Europe would have proved unstoppable.

The young, confident, and fanatical would have overwhelmed the middle-aged, tentative, and guilt-ridden remnants of Christian Europe—with the help of collaborationists, of course: the multiculturalist professors still obsessed with the threat of intolerant Christianity (circa 1648), the self-aggrandizing bishops and moralists who preen about their cosmopolitan sympathies, while digging their church’s and their culture’s grave.

But Europeans have stopped listening to the masochists. They are marching in Germany’s streets, in rank defiance of their government….

Islam is an intrinsically political religion, as nationalist and expansionist as Japanese Shinto, circa 1941. The hope that if we accept a few more million of their immigrants and put them on generous Western welfare benefits, a kind of Unitarian Islam will emerge which renounces political power and blandly accepts Western pluralism is a cowardly fantasy.

And now, in time of civil war, the option of cowardice falls from the table. There is only resistance, or treason.

The Missing 13th Amendment

From the ACS Editor: Judge Dale also explains how the momentous Supreme Court decision, Bond v. US (2000), was intentionally buried to prevent the people from finding out about the faux USA corporate government that has been unlawfully ‘slid’ into place.

On or about March 20, 2013, the New Hampshire Legislature passed HB 638, recognizing Article XIII, known by few as: “The Missing 13TH Amendment,” missing from the organic Constitution of the United States of America and the legislative analysis that was offered, described a trite but secret history of this mystical amendment, which I have encapsulated as follows:

RE: During the American Civil War, the country was under Martial Law by President Lincoln and after the War, Lincoln’s policies were to be abated and everything was supposed to return to normal but it didn’t happen quite that way. Congress passed the Organic Act of 1871, which created a government corporation within the District of Columbia, called: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This new government corporation replaced the Municipal Charter for the District of Columbia, a move that egregiously led to the fraudulent rewrite and adoption of what appeared to be the organic American Constitution. This erroneous rewrite is described as a corporate “mission statement” with the original 13TH Amendment “omitted” and it was this Constitutional rewrite that was inadvertently published for all to see.

Members of royalty, PhD’s, lawyers, squires and bankers, “Titles of Nobility,” have left an historic wake of deceit, destruction and corruption behind them on this planet and I would like to believe that it was the majority intent of the Founding Fathers and the first federal convention, to shield America from those proven elements of destruction and corruption. In so doing they proposed and ratified several amendments, one being Article XIII or the 13th Amendment, specifically designed to bar candidates who held such “Titles of Nobility,” from ever holding a seat in government! Each year since 1871, Lincoln’s Martial Law has been renewed by Congress and currently, all state and federal governments are dominated by legislators with, “Titles of Nobility.” What was once regarded as a service to country is now a political career.

Quote: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens at all, you can bet it was planned that way.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

The described “omission” of Article XIII [the missing 13th Amendment] and the “mission statement” the fraudulent copy of the organic constitution initiates the following [ten] questions, which I will attempt to answer as succinctly as I can.

QUESTION 1: How do you “omit” a Constitutional Article when they are all sequentially numbered?

ANSWER 1: Obviously this is a lawyer’s response by the New Hampshire Legislature because you cannot simply “omit” a Constitutional Amendment, they are sequentially numbered! The original Article XIII was intentionally and methodically removed from existence, which took a number of years to complete and was NOT simply “omitted.” It required a conspiracy; a federal rewrite; the removal of all former texts and references to the original Article XIII and the domination of all the various state government legislatures by candidates holding, “Titles of Nobility,” who would be willing to save their careers at any cost, thus proving that this was all intentional on their part to complete and sustain its demise.

QUESTION 2: Why didn’t Lincoln’s Martial Law policies abate and the government return back to normal following the Civil War?

ANSWER 2: The federal government for the American Republic had IMPLODED when the southern states decided to secede from the Union and walk out while Congress was still in session. Absent the presence of those southern state delegates, Congress could not adjourn and could not move forward for lack of a quorum! President Lincoln became the federal law under Martial Law until a new federal government could be assembled.

QUESTION 3: President Lincoln was a lawyer, a Title of Nobility, and several delegates and predecessors’ were lawyers! Now how can that be, given that the original 13th Amendment prohibited persons possessing a, “Title of Nobility,” from ever holding a seat in government and given that the 13th Amendment had not been “omitted” until 1871, during the Lincoln Administration?

ANSWER 3: The Truth is that the American Republic never enjoyed a Constitutional government beginning with the election of George Washington. George took office one year before the Constitution permitted; he subsequently overthrew the organic Constitution; reinstated the British owned Virginia Colony Corporation; altered the Oath of Office requirements; installed a corporate Military government in place of a Civilian government and replaced the Common Law with a commercial law known as “Admiralty” or “the law of the sea.” George then declared that: “All of America is now under water!” George was a 32nd Degree Freemason and a descendent of William, the Prince of Orange, the Sovereign King of America, according to the signed copy of the, “Paris Treaty of 1783.” This gave him the notion that….

The Liberty to Leave

As the Scots debate independence, the British government has responded with every argument imaginable—except the threat to invade. Prime Minister David Cameron is no Abraham Lincoln.

So also it appears with Catalonia’s push for a referendum to secede from Spain, though the latter responded far less gently to Basque separatism in past years. No one threatened military action during Quebec’s lengthy flirtation with independence from Canada. The Czechoslovakian government peacefully, even cheerfully, bade farewell to Slovakia two decades ago.

Still, not everyone is willing to accept smaller territories going their own way. Yugoslavia broke up with an orgy of violence. Oddly, the United States supported every resulting independence bid, except those mounted by Serbs. The latter were expected to live under Muslim-Bosnian, Croatian, and Kosovar-Albanian majorities, irrespective of the rulers’ brutality. Washington even mounted a military campaign to break Kosovo off of Serbia, while reacting hysterically to similar Russian behavior toward Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which seceded from the country of Georgia. Washington responded equally badly to Crimea’s departure from Ukraine, though no one really knows the wishes of that majority-Russian land, since the official referendum was anything but fair.

In international politics the only rule regarding secession is that you get to do it if you can either convince or force the other party to agree. And there is no consistency even within a country. Today it is hard to imagine Washington launching drone strikes or sending in the 82nd Airborne if Texas voters approved an ordinance of secession.

Yet the U.S. government waged war on its own people during the American Civil War. In fact, it really wasn’t a “civil war,” which typically involves two or more parties seeking to control the territorial whole. In this case, it was a conflict over coerced union. Should states be prevented from severing a political connection they no longer support?

Administration Is Facilitating Agent Provocateurs to Destabilize Ferguson

….According to members of the St. Louis media and one St. Louis area law enforcement personnel who have agreed to speak to me off the record, St. Louis is now home to a large contingent of West African illegal immigrants, Palestinians with ties to the PLO who are heavily recruiting young black Americans into Islam (see text later in this article) and a very large group of “New Black Panthers” with clear and distinct ties to radical Islam.

….On the first night of rioting, a strong National Guard could have quelled the initial outbursts from radical agitators in the crowd. Yesterday, Paul Watson reported that Lt. Governor Kinder stated that the DOJ blocked the participation of the National Guard and then Ferguson Mayor James Knowles’ complaint echoed that same sentiment that his request for National Guard assistance was repeatedly ignored by Democrat Governor Jay Nixon (on behalf of the DOJ and the Obama administration-see video at this link ). Could the agitation quotient of the DOJ be more clear? They are facing these charges from high ranking Missouri political figures.

We have Islamic agents of agitation which have come in to this country under the guise of the Summer of 2014 immigration invasion. These individuals have ties to Middle Eastern terrorist as pointed out earlier in the article and they are heavily recruiting young black Americans and teaching them to be disenchanted with their lives, their country and are teaching them to act on their feelings at Ferguson and soon-to-be across the country. We have Islamic missionaries in this countries and they are harbingers of death and destruction….

This article demonstrates strong links to terrorist elements between elements of the present administration, including Obama, and known terrorist figures. We now know that it is highly likely that the Justice Department blocked the use of the National Guard on the first night to ferment the violence. We know that the New Black Panthers with clear ties to terrorists and radical Islamic rhetoric are the “boots on the ground” in Ferguson and Melissa Melton has exposed that these actions are taking place in 83 American cities. My fellow Americans, we are being destroyed from within. Reasonable black and white Americans, regardless of their feelings related to the Grand Jury verdict and their refusal to indict officer Wilson, do not want to see this senseless violence. However, we are not dealing with people who are reacting to a local law enforcement matter. We are witnessing an Islamic invasion of our inner cities for the express purpose of undermining the nation to the point of starting a civil war.

I have gone to extensive lengths to expose this invasion as having its roots in Middle Eastern terrorist groups. If you are not convinced reread the first part of this article. It is all there. Exposing this insidious plot to the light of day is our best defense.

Former Defense Secretary Hagel is not on board and neither are large segments of the military. The next couple of months are going to be highly volatile. IT IS LIKELY TO ASSUME THAT A MILITARY COUP COULD BE FORMING IN THE WINGS.
