  • AMERICA's Burgeoning CIVIL WAR

    AMERICA's Burgeoning CIVIL WAR

    by Chuck Baldwin


    Make no mistake about it: America is already engaged in its

    second civil war. The decades-old left-right, conservative-liberal,

    Democrat-Republican paradigm that had (before Donald Trump's

    election) almost evaporated is back-with a vengeance. In fact, it

    has turned into a full-fledged war. And it doesn't matter to a tinker's

    dam which side wins this war: Constitutional government and the

    Natural rights of man are the losers.


    Take your pick. Maxine Waters or Donald Trump, Sean Hannity

    or Chris Matthews: Both sides are destroying the principles of

    federalism, constitutionalism and Natural Law. For all intents

    and purposes these principles are already dead. The American

    experiment in republicanism is over. From now on it's the survival

    of the strongest. Might makes right. Logic, reason and sensible

    debate are buried in the dustbin of history. America has entered

    the next Dark Ages. And, sadly, there are hardly any Reformation

    preachers left in America to lead the nation into the light of liberty.


    By removing Alex Jones, Ron Paul's Institute For Peace And

    Prosperity executive director Daniel McAdams and Antiwar.com

    editorial director Scott Horton from their outlets, Silicon Valley-

    complete with its poster establishments Facebook, Youtube,

    Spotify, etc.-have proven themselves to be nothing but Naziesque

    censors hell-bent on destroying public dissent. As Ron Paul

    rightly noted, "In an empire of lies the truth is treason."


    And lest conservatives whine about being the big, bad victims

    in this discussion, the Trumpites are as bad as the Clintonites.

    Neither group cares a flip about the Constitution, Bill of Rights

    or Natural Law. All either side wants is the POWER to have

    things done their way-freedom and liberty be damned.


    A recent survey has discovered that nearly half of Republicans

    want to give President Trump the power to shut down whatever

    media outlets he chooses. According to The Daily Beast:


    "Freedom of the press may be guaranteed in the Constitution. But

    a plurality of Republicans want to give President Trump the authority

    to close down certain news outlets, according to a new public

    opinion survey conducted by Ipsos and provided exclusively to

    The Daily Beast.


    The findings present a sobering picture for the fourth estate, with

    respondents showing diminished trust in the media and increased

    support for punitive measures against its members. They also

    illustrate the extent to which Trump's anti-press drumbeat has

    shaped public opinion about the role the media plays in covering

    his administration.


    All told, 43 percent of self-identified Republicans said that they

    believed "the president should have the authority to close news

    outlets engaged in bad behavior." Only 36 percent disagreed

    with that statement."


    Ladies and gentlemen, this is getting ugly FAST. And I think

    that is exactly what the power elite had in mind when they

    handed the victory to Donald Trump in 2016. They knew Trump

    would incite a civil war; in fact, they intended that Trump would

    incite a civil war.


    This is not to put all of the blame on Trump. Not at all. The left

    is just as culpable. Both sides are playing the game (wittingly

    or unwittingly) as scripted by the gamemakers. Donald Trump's

    rhetoric is as vitriolic as Maxine Waters'. And Maxine Waters'

    rhetoric is as vitriolic as Donald Trump's. Neither side knows

    how to reason. Neither side knows even a smidgen about the

    Constitution or Natural Law, much less decency and decorum.

    We are watching junkyard dogs have at each other. The problem

    is, both packs of dogs are chewing up the bones of liberty and

    constitutional government in the process.


    Let me tell you folks straight out: Donald Trump is as much a

    usurper of constitutional government as Maxine Waters. The

    only difference is the brand of tyranny that you prefer.


    Both Trump and Waters act like there are only two sides to this

    argument. They act like the whole country is divided between

    the fascists of the right and the socialists of the left. Not true!

    There are millions of Americans from a variety of backgrounds,

    theologies and philosophies that are sick and tired of BOTH

    SIDES. Count me as one of them.


    It doesn't matter that everyone agrees with me (or you). What

    matters is that everyone respects the Constitution, Bill of Rights,

    the Declaration of Independence and God's Natural Law and is

    willing to grant to others the same Natural and civil rights as we

    assume for ourselves.
    Such a perspective is totally lost on both

    Donald Trump and Maxine Waters (and their ilk). And the result

    is a burgeoning civil war.


    I'm telling you, any civil war taking shape in this country today

    is a net loss for freedom, no matter which side should prevail.

    I want no part of either...

    While I agree with Chuck that we are in a civil war; I do not agree that the right is as dangerous as the left. Hillary was far more dangerous than Trump.

    Here is a video that shows what many on the left are openly saying. Much of this is treason and they should be arrested.

      They, the left in particular, are bringing judgement on us all. That should be dealt with swiftly and justly as that is high treason.
