Some say it will be a struggle between “progressives” (those on the Left and their Deep State financiers), some currently in government and the folks we refer to as patriots, of which there are many stripes, (many of which, unfortunately, refuse to get along with one another). There are more patriots than progressives, but many patriots have yet to come to grips with the fact that, in several forms, the civil war has already begun. By the time some of the patriots decide to pick up their guns and fight, the real struggle may well be beyond them and their ability to make a difference. Unfortunately, they could have earlier made a difference had they been willing to pick up their Bibles and then their pens (which are still mightier than the sword if rightly used). Cultural conflicts are not always won with firearms, though that is a last resort.
Back before the War of Northern Aggression the North had been waging a cultural war against the South for decades. Mostly the South ignored it, paid little attention to those Northern people (and those who backed them) as they horrendously slandered the South and its people. Many Southerners did not feel it was “gentlemanly” to reply to gross Northern slander. Good folks they were–but they were wrong. If the Lord is the source of all truth, which He is, then you need to defend that truth wherever you have it!
Some say the civil war will commence when rational discussion can no longer be had. Sad to say, we are long past that point. All you have to do is look at Black Lives Matter, Antifa, or the NAACP to realize rational discussion is out the window. Those people are there to destroy your culture and history and they don’t give a flip about “rational discussion.” That’s not on their agenda. Never will be!
You have to admit that, in a sense, a state of civil war exists between Trump and his supporters and those who supported St. Hillary in the last election. Hillary, Soros, Obama, and the rest of the Deep State apparatus have never gotten over Hillary’s stinging defeat in that election and the proof that a variation of civil war exists is the fact that they are all actively working to overthrow the results of the last election constantly. The Deep State has never stopped trying to destroy Trump (and by extension those who support him) since he took office. They have been trying, illegally, immorally, or any way they could, to unseat him constantly–and they actually think we “deplorables” are too stupid to notice. They are not only at war with Trump–they are at war with US! Trump is trying to run the government as best he can and the Left (composed of many congress critters who are Republicans as well as Democratic socialists) is trying to wrest control from him and his administration and I think they’d actually hand it over to Hillary if they thought they could do it, against the will of the American electorate. Maybe that’s why they want our guns so badly right about now. When two opposing groups contend for control of the same government that’s a definition of civil war!!!
Mueller’s witch hunt is a main campaign in the Left’s civil war against America and her people. We are already at war (a spiritual war first and foremost) and it would be helpful if the Christians and patriots could, in larger numbers, begin to realize that the war is already upon us, both culturally and in the streets, as well as in the vaunted halls of congress.
A good place to make a beginning is to get on the internet and read None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen. Although written back in 1972, it will give you valuable insight as to where we are in our day and why.

The Epistle of James in the New Testament says, in verse one, chapter 4 that: “From whence cometh wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?”
And what are some of those lusts? The lust for power over others; the lust for economic gain gotten at the expense of others; the lust to exercise total control over the lives of others because you think you are, somehow, entitled to that control-and besides, you really want it even if you are not entitled to it. You want to be a “god” and be able to lord it over the rest of us mere mortals (can anyone say Hillary or Obama)?
This isn’t a new phenomena. It goes back to the Tower of Babel, or even back to Genesis 3 where the serpent asked Eve “Yea, hath God said Ye shall not eat of every tree in the garden?” So, the lust for war that you might have power over others is not new.
James Ronald Kennedy just recently wrote an article for the Confederate Veteran in which he noted: “In our ‘modern’ politically correct times it seems progressives, liberals and secular humanists who control society are working to increase hatred while playing a major role in justifying and encouraging evil. The current epidemic of hatred in the United States did not suddenly spring forth out of nothing but has long, bloody and evil historical roots—roots which extend deep into the cold, rocky soil of New England…The South has been on the receiving end of Northern hatred from the beginning of these United States. But this Northern hated has always presented itself as ‘good’.” I can attest to the truth of Ron Kennedy’s statements. I grew up in New England and can attest firsthand to the damage done by the Unitarian apostasy that came out of there. It has affected this country since at least the early 1800s and was subtly responsible for the society I grew up in. That’s not to say there are not good and decent folks in New England. There are. But they have grown up in the same atmosphere I grew up in and we were all influenced to some degree by it—and not for the better!
This situation, by extension, is responsible for much of the hatred and cultural warfare we have seen in this country. Much of the cultural and theological Left in this country today is little more than a modern extension of the Unitarianism, Transcendentalism, and Utopian socialism of the early 19th century. Abolitionist/terrorist John Brown and ISIS and Black Lives Matter would have loved one another! Their worldviews would have been almost identical. And these modern incarnations of John Brown continue today to try to destroy any real culture left in America—be it in the South or the West. And those that finance and support their efforts at the destruction of our culture are not all that different from the creature that said to Eve in the garden “Hath God said…?” They all have the same father (of lies).
You can’t sit down and “dialogue” with these people today anymore than you could with their Unitarian/abolitionist/socialist spiritual ancestors. Then, as now, they had (and have) an agenda—the total destruction of any remaining American, Christian culture and that being the case, all you can do if you deign to sit with them is decide how much Christian truth you are willing to sacrifice and how much of their socialist hogwash you are willing to embrace.
So, if we end up with “another civil war” there can be no “bi-partisanship” as such because they are committed to your destruction and you better realize that right off! They have one worldview and we have another—and each is committed to the destruction of the other. The two worldviews are totally at odds culturally, politically, and economically—and theologically!
California is a grand example of this. In their socialist worldview they are at least fifteen years ahead of the rest of the country, except possibly New York and New England. Part of their agenda is what has been called “the browning of America.” For those who don’t know, that means culturally changing America from what she has been into Third World status.
More to come, Lord willing.
