The Way We Are Now: Facing Facts
If you are one of us Deplorables, you should recognize that the people who control the United States today have no interest in your wellbeing. They hate and fear you and want you to disappear.
No important politician will address the issues that effect you most.
Your next President will be an immigrant anchor baby whose position has been achieved by political corruption and who hates you and your country.
America is now a post-Western society. If a hallmark of Western civilization is recognizing real evidence and logical reasoning, then just listen to the ideological drivel coming out of the mouths of Presidents and other high personages and pervasively from the media of communication.
America is now a post-Christian country. There is not a single major issue in which traditional Christianity has any effect. Just listen to the drivel coming from the mouths of the higher clergy and many of their subordinates.
We millions of deplorables are all that is left of the genuine American people and we are powerless, over our fate and even over our daily lives.
One has been murdered and some of us are being held by the government as political prisoners for peacefully walking through what used to be the people’s Capitol.
The courts no longer administer justice. They serve the interests of money and Wokeness. You have next to no hope of justice against money.
Fear is now a commonplace part of our lives. We are afraid to say what we really think. We are afraid of acting in self-defense against government pets because we are likely to be treated as criminals.
It is only a matter of time until our Social Security and Medicare are diminished to facilitate expenditures for more favoured causes.
The Republican party is not and never has been “conservative.” It is has never in its entire history conserved anything valuable to us. Its leaders regard us as useless Deplorables just as surely as do Obama and Hillary Clinton. The Republican party represents nothing except great wealth and its office-holders and aspiring office-holders.
You have the best Congress that money can buy.
Your multi-billion dollar Department of Defense does not defend you or our homeland. A vast majority of the discussion, expenditure, and action of the armed forces consists of the business of imposing will on or attacking other countries. Don’t think that the U.S. government is omnipotent or that retribution has become absent from the universe.
Can a country that has over 100 military bases across the globe and that routinely drops explosive drone rockets on civilians be considered either as democratic or Christian?
The Defense Department exists for corporate welfare, the agenda of transnational finance, and the insane delusion of our ruling class of enforcing “global democracy.”
American popular culture was for a long time comfortably middle-brow. Now it both trivial and depraved. Your children and grandchildren, given the evil educational establishment and electronic immersion, will never be exposed to Western civilization unless you do it yourself.

Not QUITE helpless, Dr. Wilson. We all have one good shot.

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in times of trouble. He is our one shot!

One thing many don't realize is that the Welfare State is paying breeders in the housing projects to indiscriminately breed a horde of revolutionaries, is feeding, clothing, and housing them from the cradle onward, and is indoctrinating them with Critical Race Theory in government schools. When servicing the ever growing national debt exceeds the means to pay for it, and printed money and inflation make the government "entitlements" worthless, then will be the time for Wall Street and The Money Trust to for lose on Western Civilization with a race war, and let out new loans to the revolution.

If I had known about Prof Clyde Wilson 30 years ago when I left the Marine Corps I would have attended the Univ of South Carolina. Instead, I went to the Univ of Kentucky and had to sit through leftist jibberish. God bless independent thinkers and courageous patriot truth tellers like Prof Wilson. We need many more like him.

I've often observed that the two best things the Trump presidency did for us was, first, reveal the Deep State/Establishment for what it is, and, second, perhaps buy us some time. Time for what, though?

There is no substitute for religious unity among a people. ‘Apart from Me (Christ), ye can do nothing.’ The South needs to regroup within the ancient, ever-young Orthodox Church, the Church of the Apostles and of our forefathers in Africa and Europe, which has overcome every destructive force thrown against Her, from Gnosticism and Arianism to Islam and the Communists. There is no need to fear small numbers – with God, ‘all things are possible’. The history of Orthodox countries is full of examples confirming this. Here is one from Georgia:

I could not agree more on Orthodoxy. It is the faith of our fathers in a literal sense; the Orthodox tradition existed in the British Isles prior to the mission of Augustine in 597, which was largely intended to bring the British churches under the aegis of Rome (and was resisted for centuries by the British, by whom I mean the Welsh, Cornell, Irish, Anglo-Saxons and the Scots).The mainstream denominations, which have sacrificed any respect for tradition in pursuit of novelty and conforming to modernity, can't really be considered the church of the Southern people any more, I'm afraid, although I know there's a lot of good and decent Baptist churches out there. But we need to avail ourself of the wisdom and strength of the old traditions as we sort out how to rebuild after the collapse of the Lincolnite monster.

Sorry, for "Cornell" read "Cornish" as in "Cornwall."
