Skip to comments.The Second Civil War in the US

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.
Do you have a proper source link? Yours just goes to the Eastern Michigan home page.
War has been declared by one side, but the other won’t acknowledge....
The best article I have seen anywhere that explains what is about to happen if folks don't return to the values that established this country. All hell is about to break loose.
Looks like it may be based on a Daniel Greenfield talk.
Again, you’ve got to have the first “civil war” before you can have the second one. Technically a civil war involves an attempt to take over the government. The South never attempted that. It attempted to act on the belief that their states were sovereign and had every right to form their own union or confederacy. At no time did they attempt to take over the existing government.
Words are supposed to have meaning. The historians from the side that won the War Between the States termed Civil War because they don’t want people to remember or to know the truth. That it wasn’t a “civil war.””
We haven’t started shooting back. Yet.
More on this theme from Daniel Greenfield.
THE CIVIL WAR IS HERE
The left doesnt want to secede. It wants to rule.
That this was written by Jack Minzey is questionable.
>>War has been declared by one side, but the other wont acknowledge....
Just like the war between Islam and Western Civilization.

Well said. America has never had a civil war...yet.
In a relationship between world views, it has to do with whether failure to meet expectations are piling up and whether grievances are piling up. If they pile up enough to exceed a threshold, then some form of separation is likely.
Thank you for explaining it accurately and succinctly.
You explanation also covers why the breakaway of the colonies from England is not generally referred to as a “civil war.”
Blah Blah Blah on this thread about who wrote it, what’s a civil war, de dah de dah
There are two immense points and I don’t care if Sultan Knish or some Minzey guy said it:
“Who decides who runs the country?” — clearly the bureaucrats, and especially those in the police agencies, have revealed themselves as the new nobility, declaring that it’s THEIR country, elections be damned. Cuz they got the guns, and the little people only have pea shooters.
“Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can’t serve in it if you’re not a member” — That’s it in a nutshell. These guys have re-built a Communist State within what was supposed to be a representative government of Free People. It’s clear that their abuse of power is massive and now they don’t care, they think they have a right to bring down an elected President on phony charges.
I said that on this forum back when the Special Counsel was cooked up. This is a coordinated hit by the Intel and Police agencies, and it’s illegal. They are playing the highest stakes game in history and they need to all go down - they are no different then John Wilkes Booth and his co-conspirators.
War has been declared by one side, but the other wont acknowledge....
Every day, in every way they can, they fight us - out in the open, or underhanded via their lies in the media. Consequently, liberal teachers no longer teach - they indoctrinate. Liberal judges no longer uphold the law - they declare their own ideology AS the law and demand it be acknowledged and followed. The liberal media no longer reports the news - it’s gone beyond slanting the news and now just makes things up to try and destroy us. Liberal “protestors” are no longer protesting - they’re rioting. Try to beat someone’s head in with a bike lock? No problem. You’re on the politically correct side, and you won’t suffer any consequences. The liberals who run social media declare anything that disagrees with them “hate,” and are perfectly okay with banning it. Same with universities. Wear a “Make America Great Again!” hat and you’re going to be no different to them than if you walked around in KKK robes or a Nazi uniform - no, actually, they think you’re worse than that.
So, yeah, the Civil War has, in effect, started. Does any reasonable person think the left is EVER going to see the error of their ways and suddenly begin acting like responsible citizens again? I sure don’t. And, given that, it’s inevitable that our country either breaks apart at some point, or things get violent. I’m not saying I want either of those things - I just don’t see all of this leading any other way.
“..A good explanation of how Democrats act when they don’t get their way....”
And they act the way they do BECAUSE THE REPUBLICANS/CONSERVATIVES let them get away with it. No accountability — no law!!!
It wasn’t. It was spoken by Daniel Greenfield at a Tea Party Convention in January 2018.
