In all of my growing up years the (fake) history books informed us that from 1861-65 we fought a “Civil War.” Needless to say, that was inaccurate. A civil war is when two opposing forces fight for control of the same government. What happened in the 1860s hardly fits that description. The Confederate States were not fighting to overthrow the government in Washington. All they wanted was to be free of it, but the Regime in Washington wasn’t having any of that because, as it turned out, the Southern states paid most of the tariffs in the country and to let them go would have cost the North and the government in Washington big bucks and so the South had to be kept in the Union so it could, as the man in the old John Wayne movie said “remit the extortion money.”
When the shooting part of that war was over, the government in Washington then resorted to that old Karl Marx favorite “reconstruction.” That was a charitable term for stealing anything of value left in the South after the shooting was over. But, whatever you want to call it–the War of Northern Aggression (an accurate title) or the War for Southern Independence (also accurate), it was not a civil war. The two sides were not fighting for control of the federal government in Sodom on the Potomac (yes folks, it was that, even back then).
However, what you see going on in Washington nowadays could more properly be called a civil war, because you have the legitimately elected administration of Donald Trump fighting against a shadow government that is trying to force it out of office and much of that effort is being controlled by the former president, who is, no matter what they say of him, a Marxist. And for help he has the lady Trump labeled as “Lying Hillary” and then there is George Soros, whose very deep pockets are paying for much of this effort. Soros, a former collaborator with the Nazis in his younger days, spends his money now fomenting revolutions around the world–and in the United States. To say he is to the left of Ho Chi Minh would be charitable.
Lots of folks reading this will be tempted to say “Oh, that’s only Benson’s opinion, what does he know?” And while I might not know a lot, there are other knowledgeable people that do.
One of them is Joachim Hagopian, a West Point graduate and former U.S. Army officer. On March 6, 2017, and article he wrote appeared on http://www.lewrockwell.com
Mr.Hagopian made several penetrating comments in this article and I cannot cover all of them here but I will try to hit a few of the pertinent ones germane to the current situation. He observed: “The United States federal government in Washington is under attack today. Our nation’s capital is presently under siege, not from military bombs or rockets fired by any foreign enemy but from powerful enemies within…With Obama-Hillary-Soros forces ostensibly maneuvering outside official government channels, against America’s legitimately elected President Trump, and their loyalist foot soldiers–the neocons…loyalists within the CIA/NSA/FBI still operating inside deep state, … with Mainstream Media, this sinister alliance is also organizing legions of clueless young leftist protesters to be at the ready for deployment in the streets to wreak havoc violently rioting as paid insurgents. What we have here is an American Spring uprising, an insurgent regime change operation taking place right here in our own country, currently bent on overthrowing America’s existing ‘democratically elected’ government.” You could call it a coup if you want, and it is probably at least that, but I contend that, where you have a legitimately elected government which is being assaulted by an illegitimate “shadow government” that wants to assume control, then you have a civil war.
Never have we had a situation such as the one that presently exists in this country now where the legitimately elected new government is under constant (and I really mean constant) attack by the losers on the Left, to the point where they are using all manner of political slight of hand and outright lying to assume control that they were incapable of gaining via the ballot box. These people are truly cultural Marxists, to the point where they honestly believe they have the right to wield the power in this country and to hell with what the electorate wants! And they are, as I write this, attempting to seize it anyway they can.
So, whether we recognize it or not, we are in a civil war–against the Leftists who are working to usurp power they are not entitled to, but want anyway. And they mean to have it! Our citizenry had better wake up and realize what those people are all about. If they manage to oust Trump from office, where do you think you Second Amendment rights will be then–down the commode, that’s where. For starters, we better pray about all of this and ask the Lord’s guidance as to how we should respond–and it ain’t by letting them put their combat boots on our necks. And we better pray for the president, too, and pray against those who are trying to tear the country down.
