0185_President Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address_”With malice toward none, with charity for all…”

February 27, 2017

This evening I spoke about Whittaker Chambers’ autobiography Witness.  While preparing for the presentation, the words:  with malace toward none, with charity for all,  kept going through my head.  These words represent the heart and life of Whittaker Chambers, which comes clearly through in his autobiography Witness.

These words are from Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural address.

Following is a context for the address, posted it at:
http://www.let.rug.nl/usa/presidents/abraham-lincoln/second-inaugural-address-1865.php

Context

Weeks of wet weather preceding Lincoln’s second inauguration had caused Pennsylvania Avenue to become a sea of mud and standing water. Thousands of spectators stood in thick mud at the Capitol grounds to hear the President. As he stood on the East Portico to take the executive oath, the completed Capitol dome over the President’s head was a physical reminder of the resolve of his Administration throughout the years of civil war. Chief Justice Salmon Chase administered the oath of office. In little more than a month, the President would be assassinated.

Below is the last paragraph of Lincoln’s address which contain the famous words:

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

0184_Whittaker Chambers_1948 witness in the case of Alger Hiss (a Soviet Espionage Agent)

Donna Jack
February 25, 2017

The following blog piece is about a man who was a witness in 1948.  This witness testified that one of the better-known, better-loved and respected men in our country, who was working high in our government, was a Soviet espionage agent.  The man he witnessed about, was instrumental in the creation of the United Nations, and was instrumental in China becoming Communist.  He was the first Secretary General of the UN.

How did “this man” become a witness against the Soviet espionage agent?

“This man” is Whittaker Chambers.  He was born 1901, into an educated, middle-class, New York family.  He was a gentle man who never wanted to hurt anyone.

As he was growing up, he witnessed the collapse of his own family.  In 1920-1921 there was a depression, and it seemed to him that the economy of the United States was about to crumble.

When he went to college at Columbia shortly after WWI, he entered as a conservative in his lifestyles and his politics.  At that time he was also having a religious experience.   When he first left Columbia, he was no longer conservative, and had no religion.  He later returned to Columbia for a while, and when he finally left Columbia in 1925, he did so to join the Communist party.

By the time he joined the Communist party, he had already searched and studied thoroughly.  He had previously written an atheist play that caught the eye of the Communist party.  When he joined the Communists, he was convinced that he was leaving the losing side to join the winners.  He was convinced that American Capitalism was going to fail.  He believed the only hope for a good society to emerge was offered by the Communist party.  He could find no other philosophy that offered what he believed the Communist party had to offer.

Communism appeared to be the only hope for the collapsing world

— Because of his strong faith that Communism was the only hope for our country, and for the world

— And because of his high intelligence, hard work and loyalty Continue reading

0183_The Collapse of Communism: The Untold Story by Robert Buchar (Communism never fell in Eastern Europe and is alive in Russia) — a report, review, and a site where you can buy the documentary

Donna Jack
February 25, 2017/update March 23, 2017

Here is another shocking report.  Communism never fell.  The Collapse of Communism:  The Untold Story, a documentary — and book based on the documentary — are subjects of this Blog.  See Blog 191 for a 2012 interview with Robert Buchar, maker of the documentary and author of the book.

You can see a 5-minute trailer of the documentary at:  http://www.collapseofcommunism.com/wmatrailer.html

Note:  The companion book to this DVD is:  And Reality Be Damned…Undoing America:  What media didn’t tell you about the end of the Cold War and the fall of communism in Europe, by Robert Buchar.    http://www.collapseofcommunism.com/book.html

Many of the people who spoke and are quoted in the documentary “The Collapse of Communism….”, came from:  “KGB defectors, dissidents, former CIA officials, and documents from secret files of KGB and the Gorbachev’s Library.”

This documentary speaks for itself.  It presents information about what has really been going on with Russian Communism. It helps explain what we are witnessing in our country today.

The KGB took over, and hand-picked Russian leader Vladimir Putin (who is third-generation KGB), to rule Russia.  As we have seen, Putin has continued toward their goal — destruction of the United States, and conquest of the world.

Following the link to the DVD movie trailer below is:  1) a report about the documentary from the www.collapseofcommunism.com website, and 2)  a message from the author of the documentary (Robert Buchar).

DVD DOCUMENTARY

 “The Collapse of Communism:  The Untold Story” (A Robert Buchar Film) is an excellent DVD documentary which exposes as false narrative, what we have been taught to believe:  the myth that the Cold War ended with the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe  — and that Communism was destroyed in Russia.  Go to Blog 0181 to read about three areas that International Communism has been targeting — with the purpose of destroying our country.
Following is a trailer of the film.

THE VENONA SECRETS
The Venona Secrets:  Exposing Soviet Espionage and America’s Traitors, by Herbert Romerstein and Eric Breindwdel

Venona:  Decoding Soviet Espionage in America, by John Earl Haynes & Harvey Klehr

One project that reveals the active efforts by Soviet Russia to undermine both Britain and the U.S., is the Venona Project.

Revealed through this project were secret Soviet cable traffic from the 1940s.  The United Stated intercepted thousands of them, and eventually decrypted a large percentage of them.

These secret Soviet cables revealed the names of Americans Soviet espionage agents, who were not only stealing our military and government secrets, in order to help the Soviets “take us down,” but they were deciding our foreign and domestic policies as well.  Many of these spies were not removed from working in our government — and hundreds in the Venona cables were never decrypted.  Who knows how many Soviet agents were never even mentioned in the cables?

PATRIOTISM

Our schools today teach that our country is not something to brag about — in fact students in our schools are taught that other countries are better than ours.  As I have reported before, one high school student testifying before a school board meeting said, “If you take out everything bad about American, there will be nothing left.”

In school board meetings when the teachers’ unions were  working hard to recall three board members who were not supported by the teachers’ unions — people who testified at the meetings and talked about American patriotism,  were shouted down and booed.

Students are taught that there should be no borders between nations….that there should be just one nation.  They are taught that a one-world-government is to be preferred to our Constitutional Republic.

MORALITY

Schools teach today that Judeo-Christian morals are antiquated — even dangerous — and must be stomped out.  Everything thought perverse in times past in this country, is worshiped and promoted to the exclusion of Judeo-Christian morals.

SPIRITUAL LIFE

God is not allowed in the classrooms – and not allowed in government.  Long ago teachers were told they could not have a Bible in their classrooms – on their desks or on the shelves.  It is common to hear legislators at our Colorado state Capitol cut down Christian students who want to have club meetings on campus — saying that to allow them to have a presence on campuses would violate the separation of church and state (a bogus claim based on a letter that promoted the protection of religious expression in the public square).  See Jefferson’s letter: Jefferson’s Letter to the Danbury Baptists (The Final Letter, as Sent)                              http://www.loc.gov/loc/lcib/9806/danpre.html

Quotation by Joseph Stalin –
the dictator of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) from 1929 to 1953

“AMERICA IS A HEALTHY BODY AND ITS RESISTANCE IS THREEFOLD:
ITS PATRIOTISM,
IT’S MORALITY,
AND ITS SPIRITUAL LIFE.
IF WE CAN UNDERMINE THESE THREE AREAS,
AMERICA WILL COLLAPSE FROM WITHIN.”

0180_Who is Joe McCarthy? Not who you thought he was. Finally the truth is known that he was right — 50 years later! — “Blacklisted” by M. Stanton Evans

SOME WRITTEN AND AUDIO REVIEWS OF M. STANTON EVANS’ BOOK:  Blacklisted by History:  The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies…

Click here to read a review by a lady named Michelle — of the book Blacklisted by History_The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies_by M. Stanton Evans 2007

 You can listen to a 9.5-minute audio book report on Amazon — of Blacklisted…  just scroll down to the “Related Video Shorts” section of this link.  Or you can listen to it below (it may take a little while for it to download – so be patient):

GREAT REFERENCE BOOK

This book is a great reference book, and clears up a lot of misinformation about Joe McCarthy.

LIES WERE MANUFACTURED AND DESIGNED FROM THE BEGINNING,
TO USE McCARTHY AS THE “POSTER CHILD” FOR IMAGINARY ACCUSATIONS,

IN ORDER TO NEUTRALIZE THE TRUTH

Almost all of academia, the vast majority of the press, and most of the public, have been saying McCarthy was nuts, even at the time Joe McCarthy was trying to reveal Communist infiltration.  At that time, any of McCarthy’s mistaken claims, and things he did out of  frustration, were magnified and repeated.  He was effectively discounted — but Joe McCarthy was actually provably right about the Communist infiltration of our government!

He came on the scene soon after the Whittaker Chambers/Alger Hiss investigations and trial(s) (1948).  In 1948 the statute of limitations had passed, so Alger Hiss couldn’t be put in prison for being a Soviet espionage agent.  But he was proven guilty of being a Soviet espionage agent, and was convicted and put in prison for perjury – – for saying he was not a Soviet espionage agent.

Joe McCarthy was effectively used by the Left, as a good neutralizing force that diverted people away from the reality that Alger Hiss and other Soviet Communists had become part of our government, and were doing damage.

WORK IN OUR GOVERNMENT IS PROVEN THROUGH THOUSANDS OF RESOURCES

0179_”What’s so Good About Tough Times?” and “Easter in My Heart”–Two of Joe Wheeler’s collections of uplifting, inspiring short stories

Donna Jack
February 14, 2017

Two books to provide encouragement and examples to live by

What we read has a great influence on who we are.  Feast on books written and compiled by Joe Wheeler — and you will be building and maintaining a good heart attitude.

In that spirit I recommend two uplifting books compiled and edited by Joe Wheeler  (www.JoeWheelerBooks.com):

What’s So Good About Tough Times?  Stories of People Refined by Difficulty and

Easter in My Heart:  Uplifting Stories of Redemption & Hope.  Both are compiled and edited by Joe Wheeler.

Joe Wheeler’s website is:  www.joewheelerbooks.com

His books reflect this country and our Christian and Jewish values from about 1880 through the mid to late 1950s.  Joe says something like this:  around 1960 the light went out in much of America.   Too many people are ignorant of their American heritage.  These books will awaken the young (and old) to who we are.

The two books showcased here are:  What’s So Good About Tough Times?  Stories of People Refined by Difficulty — and Easter in My Heart:  Uplifting Stories of Redemption & Hope.  Both are compiled and Edited by Joe Wheeler. Continue reading

Joseph Goebbels — propaganda minister

Joseph Goebbels’ quote is at the end of this blog —  it talks about making up a huge lie and repeating it over and over to manipulate people.  You can read it in quotation 26 on the Quotations page of this website.

Blacklisted by History, is a book written by M. Stanton Evans
— Below is a video in which Mr. Evans tells about his book.

This video link has a lot of information about Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America’s Enemies.  One of the things you will find in this YouTube, is a summary of things that have been made public in recent years — things that verify the extensive Communist infiltration in our government that Joe McCarthy was trying to expose to the public.

0177_Epidemic in our country: believing the worst (or best) without any knowledge_Link to Goebbels’ quote about repeating big lie (people will believe it)

Donna Jack
February 10, 2017

In Blog Post 0178 you can read Joseph Goebbels’ quote  — it talks about making up a huge lie and repeating it over and over to manipulate people.  You can also read his quote in Quotation 26 on the Quotations page of this website.

We need to be slow to judge people, and slow to anger.  Those who wish to control us, use against us, our weakness to swiftly judge and to get angry.  They keep repeating lies — lies that are designed to divide.

It is difficult to avoid judging people,
when quick harsh judgment is all around us every day.

Almost no matter where we go, people seem to be angry, saying bad things about people — frequently these uncomplimentary words are about people they don’t even know.  People often seem to be eager to cut someone else down.  These harsh unkind words are not only focused on strangers, but just as easily shift focus to people close to home:  people in our schools, our churches, at work, in our neighborhoods, clubs …  and in our own families .

Blog post 0090 goes into detail about “Label-Libel” — a term I found in a book
from a New Mexico teacher supply store.

Human nature is a combination of both good and bad.  Those who have evil goals in mind to control other people, frequently take advantage of the weaknesses of human nature (greed, selfishness, dishonesty, pride, vengeance, gossip, hatred, anger, impatience).  They encourage and feed these weaknesses, in order to divide us from each other, so that they can accomplish their own selfish goals.
