    This is an interesting perspective and true .

    A few days ago, Jack Minzey, sent what was to be the final chapter in the long line of books and treatises which he had written.

    Jack went to be with the Lord, on Sunday, 8 April 2018.

    Professionally, Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education and the Government role therein. His interest in Conservative Politics was exceeded only by his intellectual ability.

    This is the last of his works:

    Civil War

    How do civil wars happen?

    Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

    The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it's not the first time they've done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn't really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election. There's a pattern here.

    What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don't accept the results of any election that they don't win. It means they don't believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.

    That's a civil war.

    There's no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.

    This isn't dissent. It's not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they're the worst thing that ever happened to the country. But then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don't win, what you want is a dictatorship.

    Your very own dictatorship.

    The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it's inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can't scratch his own back without his say so, that's the civil war.

    Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that's not the system that runs this country. The Democrat's system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.

    If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance His power is unlimited. He's a dictator.

    But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can't do anything. He isn't even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has 'discretion' to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican doesn't even have the 'discretion' to reverse him. That's how the game is played. That's how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn't yet won that particular fight.

    When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren't even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.

    The Constitution has something to say about that.

    Whether it's Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship.

    Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can't serve in it if you're not a member. If you haven't been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren't in the club. And Trump isn't in the club. He brought in a bunch of people who aren't in the club with him.

    Now we're seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.

    That's not a free country.

    It's not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an 'insurance policy' against Trump winning the election. It's not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It's not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It's not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn't supposed to win did.

    Have no doubt, we're in a civil war between a conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government.

    Jack must have felt rather lonely in acedemia. Sorry to hear that he passed, he had interesting views.

    Politicians come and go but the law, institutions and bureaucracies remain.

    Well , now the dems have filed multiple ethics violations against Kavanaugh with five different hand picked judges in their effort to remove him . They have a scorched earth policy when they lose .

    Just more time consuming "obstruction" designed to be endless, no matter what the damage to the country. Doesn't work on Trump, and won't work on Kavanaugh. Hoping this Nov gives them a butt kicking back to the stone age. But then I'd have to look at ugly girls and guys with "man buns", single middle aged women with 5 cats, and "hipsters" crying on the news, 24/7. And..uggh.. more Hillary "Con" Clinton, crap.

    The libs aren't fighting with guns . They're using crooked lawyers and a willing accomplice called mainstream media . Added to the complacency of working people too busy working and trying to live right they keep gaining ground .

    Very true... Libs, illegals, and most importantly the MS-13 gangbangers aren't using guns either. My son-in-law was telling me about what it's really like in San Diego, CA (not around the military bases, but in areas downtown and the hip, funky, Balboa Park area, etc...)

    {thread within a thread.... Check out my post in the Off Topic General Discussion section, about my wife and I flying out to San Diego to see our new granddaughter}

    Anyway, as you know and everyone knows. Guns are almost unheard of in CA, and the left wingers would literally go into convulsions at the very sight of a gun. With that said, what the Antifa people, crazed libs, MS-13 gangbangers, etc... are doing is using knives and hammers on the streets!

    You just want to grab a quick taco & soft drink to-go at some little joint somewhere downtown. But out of nowhere, some dude rushes up and either stabs you with a Buck knife or (most of the time) lunges out with a heavy gauge 20 oz. Hammer and bashes you right in the skull, knocking you out, and then robbing you of everything you got.

    Even more crazier (and/or in contrast to those beautiful photos of the beach that I took), it is always said that San Diego is beautiful, a very nice clean city, and loaded with Navy & Marine bases. But it has a darker side, according to my son-in-law. The lib newspapers, TV media, etc... all whitewash the reports away, and NOTHING ever gets reported on the local TV news!

    I used to visit SD about every year to see relatives. I swear the last 3X or so, I was actually concerned about my life, in areas that had never been a problem before. La Jolla used to be great to visit, but it went to hell in a handbasket tool. Can't move 10 feet without something "out of place" happens, just enough to get your senses on alert and your head on a swivel.
