The Civil War and Abraham Lincoln.
On December 20th, 1860 nearly three months before President Lincoln took office as the 16th president of the United States, South Carolina became the first state to secede from the Union. On April 12th,1861 the first shots were fired starting America's first and only Civil War. The Confederate soldiers bombarded the Union soldiers at Fort Sumter, South Carolina. They fired the first shots.
Slavery was a crucial factor in this war but it wasn't the only reason we as a nation turned on one another. The Democratic south seceded from the Union because they no longer wanted Washington's political oversight and control, and yes many of those blue states wanted to keep their slaves and not free them. This was a war fought over ideologies and politics.
Lincoln grieved often during this war. He did not want it and did everything within his power to prevent it. It took his toll on him. President Lincoln and the northern Union states prevailed and after 618,222 deaths the war ended on April 9th, 1865.
True history in today's schools and colleges is not taught to our children and young adults. When the Confederate States failed to divide the nation via the Civil War and remove Abraham Lincoln from office they had him assassinated on April 14th, 1865. President Lincoln died the next day just six days after the war ended.
One hundred and fifty-five years later America teeters on the brink of falling off the cliff and into the abyss of another Civil War. Tyranny and anarchy are spreading across our nation as fast as the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Lawless rioting is ongoing nightly. Now in its tenth day with no end in sight. Cities all across America are being ransacked, businesses are being burned to the ground and destroyed. Antifa has hijacked the nationwide protests that were intended to bring attention to the brutal murder of George Floyd by a Minneolpois city police officer on May 25th, 2020. No human being should ever be murdered like this at the hands of Law Enforcement. People everywhere are upset over this and rightfully so. But this does not give the violent rioters the right to destroy our cities, attack, kill, and injure our Law Enforcement Personnel, and innocent bystanders. I fully support peaceful protests, this is a right guaranteed under the Constitution.
For the past fifty years, Democratic Governors and Mayors nationwide have kept a stranglehold on our cities and communities with their Socialist policies. Billions have been spent on their Leftists programs. Ask yourself where has all this money gone and what has it accomplished? Millions of people in these cities and states are still the economic and political slaves that they were fifty years ago. In fact, this is eerily similar to the exact same type of control that the Confederate Democrats exerted over their cities and states when the Civil War broke out.
Antifa () is a predominantly left-wing, anti-fascist political activist movement in the United States comprising a diverse array of autonomous activist groups that aim to achieve their objectives through the use of direct action rather than through policy reform. Activists engage in protest tactics such as digital activism and militancy, involving property damage, physical violence, and harassment against people whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right.
Individuals involved in the movement tend to hold anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist views and subscribe to a range of left-wing ideologies such as anarchism, communism, Marxism, social democracy, and socialism. Both the name Antifa and the logo with two flags representing anarchism and communism are derived from the German Antifa movement.
Peaceful protests were organized across the land to call attention to the injustice and wrongful murder of an innocent man...George Floyd. Again perfectly ok and with just cause. But that movement very quickly got hijacked by the Radical Leftist Socialist. Now what is going on is not about George Floyd or justice.
Why The Call To Defund The Police?
A nationwide call is going out to defund the police. This ought to send shivers down the necks and backs of every law-abiding citizen in the country. Yes, what happened to George Floyd is wrong in every way. But defunding Law Enforcement is not the answer, it is in fact pure insanity. What is the intent or purpose of this? Nothing short of further disarming American cities and its citizens in the name of "justice."
Going after our 2nd Amendment isn't enough for the Left. Cripple or weaken Law Enforcement Agencies and who stands between these Radical Socialist Leftists, criminals, rioters, and us the people? Who do they go after next? Our military that's who. What the Radical Left wants is total and complete control of America. If that should happen the only thing standing between us the people and their tyrannical government will be our right to keep and bear arms...the 2nd Amendment.
One has to wonder with some of the comments made by General Mattis, current active duty military Generals, and others this past week, if there is not a silent coup starting to take place at high levels of our government to take our president down! No matter how accomplished General Mattis was while serving our nation he is wrong for publicly criticizing President Trump. Why does he do this? He is a member of the Deep State, the Swamp that President Trump has vowed to drain. Make no mistake about it the Deep State hates President Trump as much as the Democrats do.
It has been shocking to watch National Guardsmen, Law Enforcement Personnel, Congressmen and Congresswomen, State and Local Officials take a knee publically. All in the supposed honor of peacefully protesting police brutality. Like it or not but when our Guardsmen and women do this they are showing these radicals that they are weak. They are being sent into these troubled cities to show solidarity but to stop the insane violence that is tearing them apart. They are there to uphold law and order not to side with the protesters.
Pure hatred of Donald Trump runs through the blood of these Democratic Socialists. They failed to remove him from office with their phony "Russian Collusion" plot. So what do they do next? Some think that they may have cooperated with China in turning the Coronavirus lose on the world. Was the nationwide lockdown unnecessary? Many believe so now. Without a doubt it hurt us economically...some forty million lost their jobs during this quarantine. Many businesses may never recover and for those that do it may take months or years to recover their losses.
Can President Trump Prevent Another Civil War?
Many Conservative Americans and others have compared President Trump's policies and thinking to President Reagan and President Lincoln. He leans conservatively to the right in many cases and this infuriates the Democrats and the Deep State. Like Lincoln, he does not want to see America divided again. Undoubtedly he does not want us tearing one another apart and he certainly does not want us descending into the abyss of another Civil War.
President Trump has repeatedly called for order and peace over the past ten days. He is practically begging the Democratic Mayors and Governors of the nation's largest cities and states to step up and get control of this mess. He is threatening to use the Insurrection Act to quell the violence.
Notice how these so-called leaders do as little as possible to quell the rioting and looting? Yet they publically blast the president daily and do everything they can to lay the blame of their pathetic failures on him.
Outsides are fanning the flames that are burning through our cites. Many of these rioters are funded by Radical Leftist Groups including George Soros. America stands in the way of these radicals to usher in their beloved "New World Order."
Meanwhile, China is on the move worldwide. Politically, economically, and militarily. Taiwan and Hong Kong are seriously worried about war and invasion by China's military. China has declared war on America. I personally believe they unleashed the virus on the U.S. and the world intentionally. Will China seize an opportunity to march on Taiwan, Hong Kong, and their neighbors while America is falling apart from within. Do they have a hand in this...are they working with the Left and others to destroy us from within? Their propaganda on Social Media strongly suggests so.
China's economy was in trouble before the Coronavirus Pandemic spread across the planet. Credible reports state that a second wave of the virus is occurring near Wuhan. On that note, one has to ask themselves a very crucial question. And that is with tens and hundreds of thousands of protesters and rioters continuing to gather across America daily will this lead to an explosion of the second wave of the Coronavirus?
As of today, Saturday, June 6th, 2020 the John Hopkins website reports that there are 6,797,633 cases worldwide. Global deaths stand at 396,388. Global recoveries are at 2,784,210. In the U.S. we now have 1,906,060 cases, 491,706 recoveries, and 109,305 deaths,
As our economy surges upward and begins recovering from the shutdown what happens if these protesters spread this virus nationwide like wildfire? Not only them but everyone else who has throw social distancing and precautionary measures to the wind in the past month.
Falling Off The Cliff.
Looking at the big picture it appears that we are not that far away from imploding within as a nation. If continued rioting and destruction of our cities and communities does not stop soon we indeed may be headed for another Civil War. Americans everywhere are angry about this, we've had enough. That's exactly what those who hate America want. So they continue to fan the flames hoping to blow the embers of rage across our land hoping to burn it down completely.
For over two hundred years we have lived together as the melting pot of the world. Overall we lived peacefully with one another. Yes, we've had our differences, difficulties, struggles, and wrongs but we managed to stay together as a nation. Tragically the fabric of our unity is being torn apart and our union once again is on the verge of unraveling.
Do we really want to fall into that black hole? I think not but there are overwhelming powerful forces at work who are driving us to the edge of that cliff. America's heart and soul is at stake. This started over 100 years ago under President Coolidge (the first Progressive President). The pot has been on simmer for the past fifty years. But Barack Obama fanned the flames and now the pot is starting to boil over.
One hundred and fifty-five years ago President Lincoln faced off to save the nation from the Socialist Democrats of his day. Today President Trump has the same battle. Pray for the sake of the nation that he prevails as did Lincoln.
The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
