CRISIS? OR HOAX?
The Marxists are so overwhelmed with Corona Virus hysteria that they have temporarily forgotten their absolute hatred of all things Confederate. So there is not a whole lot to report this week on the heritage front.
While speaking at the Army Navy Club Commandant General David Berger explained why he ordered the ban and removal of Confederate Flags and all Southern symbols.
“The Marine Corps is a combat organization that can’t afford breakdowns in trust or unit cohesion,” the General said.
“Things that divide us are not good,” Berger said. “Whatever [Marines] have in their homes is fine. When on government property, we have to think as a unit and how to build a team, a cohesive team.”
Berger claims that his decision was not a knee jerk reaction to the previous week’s Congressional hearing on “extremism in the military ranks,” and the “rising threat of white supremacy.”
Following the General’s comments a Coast Guard Academy cadet asked Commandant Admiral Karl Schultz if he would consider a similar decision for that service. Supposedly, the Coast Guard has no such plans.
General Berger said no other military leaders have consulted him about his decision to forbid Confederate items on Marine Corps bases.
Family Fued game show host Steve Harvey, who, as most of our readers know, is himself black, was dragged through the mud this week by the liberals in the media and on Twitter because he described Africa as a jungle.
Ha said, “I took a trip to Africa a few years back and trust me, those jungles are scarier than anything I saw in the hood.”
“No matter how crazy America can be at times, no matter how off-based America can appear, America is still the best deal out there. This is the best country in the whole wide world. I ain’t going nowhere else. You can start that ‘back-to-Africa’ movement if you want to… you’re on your own…”
“I went over there last summer… no no, it’s way too hot in Africa. The sun be just leaning on your a**. I ain’t going over there!”
“Went over there y’all, wrong wrong move. I’m from the ghetto, projects y’all ain’t never been nothing else, can’t be nothing else…”
“They’ve got some sh*t happening that you ain’t ready for. They’ve got some noises in Africa that your a** just ain’t familiar with. See, I’m from the ghetto and when I hear a barking sound, I know, oh that’s a dog. I know about how far away that dog is, I know if my a** need to be on the move, I know if I need to get up on your car.”
“….trust me, those jungles are scarier than anything I saw in the hood.”
NON-HERITAGE NEWS AFFECTING THE SOUTHLAND:
Primaries took place in Florida, Arizona, and Illinois with Joe Biden “pounding” Bernie according to all major media reports. That said, the races were actually very close and the turnout was abysmally LOW. So it now seems that the media has turned against Bernie. That makes no sense since they are all fellow Marxists.
At any rate, primaries are being postponed due to Corona Virus so we do not now have another primary scheduled for at least 3 weeks.
My guess is that Bernie will be placed under extreme pressure to concede before then. The question is, will he? I guess we will see just how much power the Democrat establishment really has based on whether or not Bernie throws in or stays in.
The truth is that despite all the reporting Bernie still has a clear path in an honest and un-rigged system, assuming that the Virus hysteria is not used to prevent those primaries from ever taking place at all.
Reportedly the first doses of Corona antidote and vaccine have been distributed this week. But there effectiveness has not been determined. This was a test administration. I guess now we wait and see?
Schools, restaurants, ballgames, and just about everything else is closed by government decree. Millions are at home right now, effectively laid off from their jobs. Thousands of our readers are included in their number.

The question I started the title of this article off with is, obviously, a rhetorical question and any thinking person will realize that and already know the answer. I have never forgotten the bumper sticker I saw on a car, up in Tennessee, I think it was, years ago now. It said “I trust my president, and my government.” There was a lady driving the car, and I guess my commentary (spoken to myself) was rather a bit uncharitable. I thought, Lady, you’re an idiot if you actually believe what that bumper sticker on you car says.
Government has lied to so many about so much for so long that anyone that believes anything they tell us is probably a candidate for the rubber room, right along side that guy who thinks he’s Napoleon.
Not only that, but those in government, for the most part, laugh at us ordinary folks. Just this week I read a column by Jeff Crouere at www.ringsidepolitics.com where he commented on Pocahontas, aka Elizabeth Warren, from socialist Massachusetts. Warren was campaigning in Iowa and promoting her socialist scheme to eliminate student tuition debt. A father confronted her at a campaign event there, at which a video was made of what went on. The father said: “My daughter is getting out of school. I saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get any money back?” To which Warren responded in a condescending manner “Of course not!” But the Dad wasn’t finished, and you could tell he was getting ticked at Pocahontas. He replied to her: “So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money, and those of us who did the right thing get screwed…My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacations. I saved my money.
He made more than I did. But I worked a double shift, worked extra–my daughter worked since she was 10.”
At that point, Dad realized that Warren didn’t give a tinkers damn about what he was saying, so he said to her “So you’re laughing.” Warren then sought to tell him she wasn’t laughing. Needless to say, she failed to convince him. He got his parting shot in when he said: “Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re doing. We did the right thing and we get screwed.” At that point Warren had already written him off and was on her way to her next patsy. Warren apparently has no use for people that try to do the right thing. She is too busy pandering to the socialist deadbeats she fervently hopes will be stupid enough to vote for her if only she promises them enough freebies.
Warren is sadly, typical of most of what is running for offices both at state and federal levels nowadays. She has no time or patience for those who do try to do the right thing. She is too busy trying to give away what they have worked hard for to some socialist loser who doesn’t want to bother working.
I watched awhile back as AOC unveiled her grandiose plans for our future, part of which was a guaranteed annual income for those who do not want to work. Again, I guess uncharitably, my first thought was “Lady, you’ve got to be some kind of stupid if you think those who sweat working for a living are going to be really overjoyed paying a yearly income to those who are too lazy to get out and sweat themselves.” Yet that’s what she is expecting. Where does she think (if she does) that the money is going to come from to support those deadbeats too lazy to work? It’s going to have to come, obviously, from people who do work.
That’s the main problem with so much of this garbage the socialists pour out there–especially their “redistribution of the wealth” agenda. They are going to soak the people who do work in order to pay those that won’t–and they think that those who do work will be deliriously happy to pay for those that won’t. And if we are not, then there is something wrong with us.
I said awhile back that socialists don’t think like normal people and some of the whacked out proposals they have come up with heading into this year’s elections prove that. And when normal people look at some of the insanity they have planned for us and gripe about it, then they look down their long, convoluted noses at us and accuse us of racism, sexism, white privilege or whatever other charge they can throw at us because we refuse to support their damnfoolishness.
Socialism is a cancer on the body politic of this country and we won’t cure the problem by being “nice” to the socialists, who take our inoffensiveness as a sign of weakness. We need to start exposing them for who and what they really are–evil people, whose vision for America will end up destroying America. And what is worse, many of them, especially at leadership levels, know that.
GREAT AWAKENINGS OR MEGACHURCHES: A STUDY IN STARK CONTRASTS
Dr. Chuck Baldwin is a radio broadcaster, syndicated columnist, and pastor dedicated to preserving the historic principles upon which America was founded.
Twice he was the Constitution Party’s nominee for President of the United States.
I have long maintained that America’s primary problem is not a political one but a pulpit one. If this is true, then the solution to America’s primary problem is not political but spiritual. But don’t expect most evangelicals to comprehend that.
In the minds of most evangelicals, the antidote for America’s ailments is deposited at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. In this respect, evangelicals and political conservatives are not unlike religious and political liberals: Both groups look to Washington, D.C., especially the White House, to solve America’s problems. The only difference between the two groups is the manner in which they believe the president should implement those solutions. But both groups believe the president is the one who must do it.
And to many evangelicals, Donald Trump is much more than a president; he is a savior.
All we are going to hear for the rest of this year from evangelical conservatives is the absolute necessity of re-electing Donald Trump. And all we are going to hear for the rest of this year from religious liberals is the necessity of stopping the re-election of Donald Trump.
Not long ago, I delivered a message entitled ” Looking For Hope In All The Wrong Places.”
In this message, I tried to demonstrate the utter futility of evangelical Christians putting their hope in politicians—even “conservative” politicians—and especially in Donald Trump.
Expecting politicians to accomplish what God has demanded is the duty of pastors and churches is a recipe for disaster and chaos—which are fitting words for what is happening in America right now.
I’ll say it again: It is far more important who your pastor is than who your president is.
But, obviously, most evangelicals do not agree with me on that. They will abandon a Bible-preaching, truth-telling pastor for rebuking a duplicitous and degenerate president in a millisecond—IF that president is a “conservative” Republican. The reason: They have placed their hope in a political office.
They would rather trust a lying president than an honest pastor.
To the vast majority of evangelicals, politics is far more important than spiritual truth. I could even go so far as to say that to many evangelicals, politics (at least their version of it) IS spiritual truth.
Contrast the modern evangelical movement with the great spiritual movements in early America.
Two Great Awakenings
From about 1720 to the mid-1800’s, Colonial America experienced two Great Awakenings. The result of these awakenings was nothing short of phenomenal.
Multitudes of people were converted to Christ. There was great growth among the churches and spiritual renewal in Colonial communities. But there was much more:
America’s colonists were given a great thirst for liberty and a great resolve to resist the forces of tyranny, which, of course, ultimately led to America’s secession from Great Britain and the establishment of a new constitutional republic.
Beyond that, the Great Awakenings in early America (which themselves were largely the result of the Protestant Reformation in Europe) created the establishment of a ubiquitous Christian society.
To say that America was established as a Christian nation is not technically correct. It was established by Christians (mostly) as a nation built upon the Natural Law principles taught in the Holy Scriptures and by theistic enlightenment scholars such as Grotius, Locke, Montesquieu, Pufendorf and Vattel—not to be confused with atheistic philosophers such as Hume, Nietzsche, Rousseau, Voltaire, et al.
But it is absolutely correct to say that Colonial American society was, by an overwhelming degree, a Christian society. That fact is undeniable. And the reason it was a Christian society was due to the influence of the Colonial pulpits—NOT the politicians.
Benjamin Franklin wrote a pamphlet called Information to Those Who Would Remove to America. It was intended to be a guide for Europeans who were thinking of relocating in America. In it he said:
Hence bad Examples to Youth are more rare in America, which must be a comfortable Consideration to Parents. To this may be truly added that serious Religion under its various Denominations is not only tolerated but respected and practiced.
Atheism is unknown there, Infidelity rare & secret, so that Persons may live to a great Age in that Country without having their Piety shock’d by meeting with either an Atheist or an Infidel.
And the Divine Being seems to have manifested his Approbation of the mutual Forbearance and Kindness with which the different Sects treat each other, by the remarkable Prosperity with which he has been pleased to favor the whole Country.
The point is: The two Great Awakenings of Colonial America had a dynamic and pervasive positive influence upon American society.
Unprecedented Church Growth in 20th- and 21st-Century America
By any measuring stick, church growth during the last 125 years in America was unprecedented.
Evangelical churches in America grew to over 300,000 in number, including hundreds of megachurches. Thousands of Christian radio and television programs saturated America from coast to coast. Thousands of Christian schools and colleges were started. Millions of Christian books were printed.
But the overall spiritual influence of evangelical churches on American society has been nil.
While evangelical churches saw unprecedented growth, the traditional family all but disintegrated. Sexual perversion became vogue. Our entertainment industries dropped into the toilet. Our major colleges and universities became hotbeds of atheism and whoredom. The morals, ethics and culture of the country sank into a garbage heap. Our political institutions became purveyors of socialism, war, a burgeoning police state, an Orwellian surveillance society, dishonesty, bribery, elitism, ad infinitum, ad nauseam.
With the approbation of evangelicals, federal deficits and deficit spending (government theft) continues unabated under both Republican and Democrat administrations and congresses. Evangelicals are as quick to live off the public dole as are the unchurched. Evangelicals cheer for more and more foreign wars. Spiritual rhetoric notwithstanding, evangelicals on the whole are as dishonest, hateful, unethical and mean-spirited as unbelievers—sometimes more so.
All of this debauchery was mushrooming during the same time that evangelical churches were experiencing unprecedented growth.
Top Ten Most Sinful States
A travel industry website recently categorized the amount of sinful activity among the 50 states. After their research was concluded, they published their list of the top ten most sinful states. The following seven vices were examined: hate, jealousy, excesses, greed, lust, vanity and laziness.
Here is the list in descending order:
9. South Carolina
Please notice that seven of the top ten most sinful states on this list are located in the Bible Belt, where evangelical churches dot almost every corner and most of the largest churches in the country are located.
The point is: Unlike in Colonial America, the massive, unprecedented growth of evangelical churches over the last 125 years has had almost zero positive spiritual, moral and ethical influence on the country.
Why do you think that is?
I believe it is because too many evangelical pastors have traded the salty sermons demanded (and practiced) by the Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 5:13) for sugar-coated sermonettes (prosperity preaching and motivational monologues) of men such as Joel Osteen.
And, secondly, instead of promoting hope in God—which requires fidelity to His Word and to His truth—they have promoted hope in politics, especially Republican presidential politics.
IS THIS HOW EUROPE ENDS?
Dr. Patrick J. Buchanan is a political commentator, columnist, and broadcaster. He worked in the White House as a special assistant to President’s Nixon, Ford, and Reagan. He sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1992 and 1996 and ran on the Reform Party ticket in the 2000 presidential election .
“Fortress Europe is an illusion.”
So declares the Financial Times in the closing line of its Saturday editorial: “Europe Cannot Ignore Syrian Migrant Crisis.”
The FT undertakes to instruct the Old Continent on what its duty is and what its future holds: “The EU will face flows of migrants and asylum seekers across the Mediterranean for decades to come.”
Can Europe not repel this unwanted home invasion from the Global South?
It is “delusional” to think so, says the FT. Europe must be realistic and set about “providing legal routes for migrants and asylum seekers.”
What occasioned the editorial was Greece’s rough resistance to Turkish President Erdogan’s funneling of thousands of Syrian refugees, who had fled into Turkey, right up to the border with Greece.
Erdogan is threatening to inundate southeastern Europe with Syrian refugees to extract more money from the EU in return for keeping the 3.5 million Syrians already in Turkey away from EU frontiers.
Another Erdogan objective is to coerce Europe into backing his military intervention in Syria to prevent President Bashar Assad from capturing all of Idlib province and emerging victorious in his civil war.
In the human rights hellhole that is Syria today, we may see the dimensions of the disaster wrought when Wilsonian crusaders set out to depose the dictator Assad and make Syria safe for democracy.
A brief history.
When the Arab Spring erupted and protesters arose to oust Assad, the U.S., Turkey and the Gulf Arabs aided and equipped Syrian rebels willing to take up arms. The “good rebels,” however, were routed and elements of al-Qaida soon assumed dominance of the resistance.
Facing defeat, Syria’s president put out a call to his allies — Russia, Iran, Hezbollah — to save his regime. They responded, and Assad, over four years, recaptured all of Syria west of the Euphrates, save Idlib.
There, the latest fighting has pushed 900,000 more refugees to Turkey’s southern border.
The 21st-century interventions and wars of the West in the Islamic world have not gone well.
George W. Bush was goaded into invading Iraq. Barack Obama was persuaded to overthrow Colonel Moammar Gadhafi in Libya and the Assad regime in Damascus. Obama ordered U.S. forces to assist Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in his war to crush Houthi rebels who had ousted Riyadh’s resident puppet in Yemen.
And what has the West reaped from our Mideast wars?
In Syria and Yemen, we have helped to create two of the world’s greatest human rights disasters. In Libya, we have a new civil war. In Iraq, we now battle Iran for influence inside a nation we “liberated” in 2003
In Afghanistan, we have concluded a deal with our enemy of two decades, the Taliban, that will enable us to pull our 12,000 troops out of the country in 14 months and let our Afghan allies work it out, or fight it out, with the Taliban. America is washing its hands of its longest war.
In five wars over 20 years, we lost 7,000 soldiers with some 40,000 wounded. We plunged the wealth of an empire into these wars.
And what did these wars produce for the peoples we went to aid and uplift, besides hundreds of thousands of dead Afghans and Arabs and millions of people uprooted from their homes and driven into exile?
Now, Europe is being admonished by the FT that, having done its duty by plunging into the Mideast, the continent has a new moral duty to take in the refugees the wars created, for decades to come.
But if the EU opens its doors to an endless stream of Africans and Arabs, where is the evidence that European nations will accept and assimilate them?
Will these migrants and asylum seekers become good Europeans? Or will they create in the great cities of Europe enclaves that replicate the conditions in the African and Middle East countries whence they came?
The history of the last half millennium tells the story of the rise and fall of a civilization.
In the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, Spain, Britain, France and Portugal, and then Belgium, Italy, Germany and America, all believing in the superiority of their civilization, went out into the world to create empires to uplift and rule what Rudyard Kipling derisively called “the lesser breeds without the law.”
After two world wars, the rulers of these empires embraced a liberalism that now proclaimed the equality of all peoples, races, creeds, cultures and civilizations. This egalitarian ideology mandated the dismantling of empires and colonies as the reactionary relics of a benighted time.
Now the peoples of the new nations, dissatisfied with what their liberated lands and rulers have produced, have decided to come to Europe to enjoy in the West what they cannot replicate at home. And liberalism, the ideology of Western suicide, dictates to Europe that it take them in — for decades to come.
The colonizers of yesterday are becoming the colonized of tomorrow. Is this how the West ends?

President Trump is asking that no more than 10 people should congregate.
So given that the House of representatives has 435 members and the Senate 100 members both Houses of Congress should close immediately!
The President’s cabinet has more than 10 members. It should disband immediately!
The military should immediately shut down operations involving any unit of more than a squad size of 10!
Police departments must immediately disband their shift meetings and dissolve their SWAT teams!
The FBI, ATF, BLM, and just about every other alphabet agency must immediately disband all units numbering more than 10!
The United nations must close its doors immediately!
State capitals and county governments must send home all of their clerical staff numbering over 10!
The CDC must close any laboratory or office involving 10 or more people!
Does anyone really think any of that is going to happen?
Of course not, government agents believe themselves to be above the rules and restrictions they place on everyone else!
Which is why I have determined, as did Dr. Ron Paul this week, that the Corona Virus is a hoax, being used by the powers that be to manipulate the American people, and other nations of the world, into a medically regulated state of martial law that we would have never, under any other circumstances, accepted.
If and when the government starts conducting its business in accordance with its own “precautions” – well if that happens I’ll stand corrected and consider changing my mind.
Crisis or Hoax, the world around us is in a panic and despite it we here at Dixie Heritage continue in the fight to maintain our monuments and defend the good names of our ancestors. We are also going to preach the faith of our fathers this Sunday, as we do every Sunday!
