After the massive shooting in Las Vegas on 10/1/2017, I figure a letter I received from  Kelleigh Nelson, NWV contributor in 2014 is worth repeating. I had placed a pink stickum marked “keeper” and filed it away. Isn’t it interesting how it just happened to fall out of my file today? The letter was from Tom how one busy afternoon he went to WalMart and ran into a two English speaking customers from Romania. The father preferred that the son do the speaking who said he was 14 when his family immigrated to the United States in 1982. With some quick math he calculated the son was about 43 years old which corresponded with his appearance and the father around 70.

Tom asked, “Wasn’t Romania a communist country for most of your lives?” “Yes, Romania was put under Russian communist control in 1947,” the son replied. “What was it like living under communism?” he inquired. “There were good things and bad things about it,” he said. Surprised that there could have been anything good about it, he asked, “What was good about it?” “Well the government controlled the currency so there was no inflation and there were no taxes.”  “No taxes?” he asked. “Yes, the government owns everything to start with so they don’t have to tax you. They just give you what they want to give you. My father was a farmer. They took his land away from him and made him work on a government collective farm.”


“Do you think America will fall to communism eventually?” he asked hoping they wouldn’t mind such a far-flung probing question.  And here’s why I decided to repeat this testimony by Tom from Kel:  The son said “It’s already started here and it’s moving fast. It will be worse here,” he said.  Tom followed them out to the parking lot arguing, “There is a difference here in America, you know. Americans are armed. They will not allow such a takeover.” He replied, “It doesn’t matter. The Romanian people believed very strongly that Romania would never submit to communism, but it happened quickly. The Romanian people were armed, but it didn’t matter. COMMUNISTS HAVE INFORMANTS. They get neighbors to report on their neighbors who have guns, then the authorities come and seize them. They use torture to get compliance.  Many Romanian men were burned alive for not turning over their guns, and some didn’t even have guns, but the authorities burned them anyway, just to strike fear in the rest. You have to understand that communists use a lot of torture.”

Tom said his heart quickened as he listened to these live witnesses tell him the inside story about a communist takeover. He said he tried one more time, “You don’t understand, Americans are armed with a lot more guns and a lot more ammunition than other countries.” The son repeated, “It doesn’t matter. They have more soldiers than you have bullets, besides in this country they have sophisticated means. Americans will not stand a chance against this government any more than we did. Your guns will be good for one thing – looters. In Katrina there were a lot of people killed by looters because they did not have guns to defend themselves. For awhile you will need guns to protect yourself from other Americans. Eventually the government will confiscate all of them.”


By now Tom said, we had walked to their car, a nice midsized sedan and he stood there feeling kind of glum. This was a whole lot more than he came to WalMart for. On a lighter note he said, “You weren’t here in America when it was a really great country back in the 50’s and 60’s and even the 70’s and 80’s.” The son said, “Oh, I know! It was a great country in 1982 when my parents sacrificed everything they had in world to bring us here. We were even required to permanently denounce our Romanian citizenship in order to be allowed to leave Romania. I know many other international people. Five years ago they would still sacrifice everything to come here, but now it is different. Now they ask, ‘What is going on in America?’ It has changed and people are not making the sacrifice but what we were fleeing from is coming here now.”

The son pointed to his father, the curious-looking little man who was the genesis of our whole conversation, who had dutifully stood alongside and listened to this entire conversation without saying a word, and the son said, “My father spent 5 years in a Romanian communist prison because of his faith.” “Because of his faith?” Tom asked. The son said, “My father was drafted into the Romanian army by the communists in 1950 and required to take an oath to kill any enemy of the government. Because of his faith he refused to take the oath so he was sent to prison from 1950 to 1955. And when I say ‘prison’, it was not like what we have here, with four walls and 3 meals. It was outdoors, like a Nazi concentration camp. When someone would die they would just bury him in the mud.”

Tom said he stood there on the pavement staring into the father’s eyes as the son told him about his father’s incarceration.  It was obvious that the father understood every word they were saying and that it brought back painful memories. The father stared back at Tom for the longest time. He said it was like there was a fiber optic cable running between us with much being said without words.  Tom stepped toward the father and extended his hand and he shook it. It was at this time Tom said he was at a loss for words so he thanked him for telling this story. He smiled, nodded yes and got into the car.

Tom asked the son if he had any suggestions and he said, “Yes, when it happens, don’t fight it. If you go along with them and make the best of it, you can do quite well. If you resist you will be tormented, tortured or hunted down and killed.”  Tom thanked the son for sharing his story as he got into the car and they drove off and left him standing in the parking lot stunned by the experience. He checked both directions before crossing traffic and walked straight back into WalMart and bought another box of bullets…

Please dear readers take note of what was said in the paragraph WHAT IS GOING ON IN AMERICA about SACRIFICING and in an earlier paragraph about neighbors tattling on neighbors and the communists having informants. We’ve already seen how the communist environmentalism has caused bitterness between neighbors and left forests burning due to poor forest management, and lately bicycles wanting more safe bike lanes in Portland, Oregon. In my last article TEACHERS OF DESTRUCTION I opened with Plato’s explanation about life in a cave. Nancy from Oregon wrote, “Wow, you hit the nail straight on…and said it in a way that really goes deep – the ‘shadows’ metaphor is exactly it – exactly what is happening. And how do we help others to see? Because most, not all, of course, have been so hypnotized they don’t even want to hear a modicum of the truth.  Our perceptions have been shaped in a lot of different ways – abortion is a choice, vaccines are best, modern pharmacological medicine saves lives; public school educates and on and on ad infinitum. We have been lined up and led to the public watering trough – there to take in and act out all their lies.”


NWV contributor, Shirley Edwards in England wrote the plan was to get England “secularized” first and America next – anything about Christianity gone and the Politically Correct Agenda surfaced and then the people voted in the most Politically Incorrect person on the presidential campaign trail in 2016. What your president says tells me the same is on the minds of others who are too afraid to say it! He may have gone a little too far to call the black NFL players who kneel when the National Anthem is played as disrespectful “son of B___” so it will be interesting to see how that plays out the next few days. (Bastards more Biblically correct)  I know attendance for NFL is way down. People are tired of paying big bucks for tickets for players who think so little of the country that has given them so much.

She goes on to say God used to always send enemies of the disobedient Israelites to shape them up. She thinks that is what is happening in England and America with Islam. It sure appears as though we could be in the End Times. Did you hear how the sun came up on the western Oregon coast the day of the eclipse??? It must have passed the sun that came up on the eastern coast maybe over Illinois? We are living with such deception.

Now, after sharing all the above, Robert Chandler in his 2008 book SHADOW WORLD said it was in the 1980s when radical professors from the Old Left 60s and 70s were nearing tenure status that the new “teachers of destruction” serving as Marxist intellectuals also known as the New Left, Progressives found its way into academia where Marxist professors trained the next generation to carry on the stealthy campaign transforming American culture, over the long term.  I mentioned Comrade Bill Ayers in my last article. It seemed the discontented wanted a revolution.

With many instances of plagiarism, Bill Ayers finally confirmed he did indeed write DREAMS FROM MY FATHER for Comrade Barack Hussein Obama. According to testimony by undercover FBI agent Larry Grathwohl, William Ayers was almost certainly involved in the San Francisco bombing on 2/16/1970 that murdered Police Officer Brian V. McDonnell. Because of prosecutorial errors, Ayers went free, boasting, “Guilty as Hell, free as a bird.” His girlfriend, Bernardine Dohrn remained underground until 1980, spent jail time for lesser charges.   Ayers became a professor at the University of Illinois in Chicago and Dohrn at Northwestern University.

Bernardine Rae Dohrn was born in Chicago in January 1942 and earned a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Chicago in 1963 and a J.D. from the University of Chicago School of Law four years later. While attending law school Dohrn became an anti-Vietnam war organizer and worked closely with the Black Freedom Movement. After completing her legal studies, she became a national student organizer for the New York city-based  National Lawyers Guild. Both of them should have been given the same punishment as the Rosenbergs in 1953 who were convicted of committing espionage for the Soviet Union and conspiring to pass U.S. atomic secrets to the Soviets but instead these home-grown pampered domestic terrorists were rewarded with jobs as professors to indoctrinate young, innocent and impressionable minds, quietly preparing them for a “passive revolution”  and delivering America’s head on a silver platter, the goal of Antoni Gramsci, founder of the Italian Communist Party. He went to Russia in the 1920s spending time with Lenin and Stalin, studying the anatomy of the Communist Revolution but he concluded that Lenin and Stalin were doing it all wrong. He said you cannot in most cases push a capitalist country directly into Communism, you must first undermine and debauch the morality, the culture, the ethics, the patriotism and the spiritual life for several generations.… Need I say more?
