New Must Read Article From Paul Craig Roberts: How We Know The So Called American "Civil War" Was NOT About Slavery!

I constantly tell everyone that I am a student of REAL history, and not the bullshit that was attempted to be shoved in my mind from some 16+ years trapped in the fraud "education system"... To me, that was not only brainwashing but pure propaganda to try to meld my own mind and my personality into something I was not.. The truth is, from an early age I was always a "rebel" and someone that never accepted anything as being "factual" or the "truth".... That is why I gave up on religion at an early age, for I could see that it was unmitigated BULLSHIT and nothing more than a form of mind control... And of course my radical ways became exemplified in the 1980's after I discovered the truth about the lies of NASA, and of course the real scoundrels out there that wanted to enslave us all....  What I am saying here is this:  I may have many of the puzzle pieces now in place, but I am always searching for the real truths out there and still have never accepted anything as reality.. There is still so much for everyone including myself to learn about ourselves and our real history....

In saying that, I am one that is truly mortified by seeing the ignorance and stupidity of the dumb ass American brainwashed and poorly educated sheep out there that are blindly and stupidly following fraud "Liberals" in their stupid attempts to change history.... Yes, granted a lot of our history has been distorted, but it does not justify the need to tear down statues and monuments, as well as try to have our written history either destroyed or made "politically correct"..... It is important that everyone stop the madness and ask these idiots out there to take a step back and actually LEARN the reality and truths about our past and especially about the diabolical criminals that are the ones pushing for this destruction of our past....

Well, just today I came across another great article from Paul Craig Roberts, (www.paulcraigroberts.org) that absolutely tells the truth about what really happened during the American "Civil War" of 1861-1865.... This article is entitled: "How We Know The So-Called "Civil War" Was Not About Slavery" and I have it right here in its entirety for everyone to read for themselves... I do of course have further thoughts and comments to follow:


How we know the so-called ‘Civil War’ was not over slavery


When I read Professor Thomas DiLorenzo’s article ( http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2017/08/21/lincoln-myth-ideological-cornerstone-america-empire/ ) the question that lept to mind was, “How come the South is said to have fought for slavery when the North wasn’t fighting against slavery?”
Two days before Lincoln’s inauguration as the 16th President, Congress, consisting only of the Northern states, passed overwhelmingly on March 2, 1861, the Corwin Amendment that gave constitutional protection to slavery. Lincoln endorsed the amendment in his inaugural address, saying “I have no objection to its being made express and irrevocable.”
Quite clearly, the North was not prepared to go to war in order to end slavery when on the very eve of war the US Congress and incoming president were in the process of making it unconstitutional to abolish slavery.
Here we have absolute total proof that the North wanted the South kept in the Union far more than the North wanted to abolish slavery.
If the South’s real concern was maintaining slavery, the South would not have turned down the constitutional protection of slavery offered them on a silver platter by Congress and the President. Clearly, for the South also the issue was not slavery.
The real issue between North and South could not be reconciled on the basis of accommodating slavery. The real issue was economic as DiLorenzo, Charles Beard and other historians have documented. The North offered to preserve slavery irrevocably, but the North did not offer to give up the high tariffs and economic policies that the South saw as inimical to its interests.
Blaming the war on slavery was the way the northern court historians used morality to cover up Lincoln’s naked aggression and the war crimes of his generals. Demonizing the enemy with moral language works for the victor. And it is still ongoing. We see in the destruction of statues the determination to shove remaining symbols of the Confederacy down the Memory Hole.
Today the ignorant morons, thoroughly brainwashed by Identity Politics, are demanding removal of memorials to Robert E. Lee, an alleged racist toward whom they express violent hatred. This presents a massive paradox. Robert E. Lee was the first person offered command of the Union armies. How can it be that a “Southern racist” was offered command of the Union Army if the Union was going to war to free black slaves?
Virginia did not secede until April 17, 1861, two days after Lincoln called up troops for the invasion of the South.
Surely there must be some hook somewhere that the dishonest court historians can use on which to hang an explanation that the war was about slavery. It is not an easy task. Only a small minority of southerners owned slaves. Slaves were brought to the New World by Europeans as a labor force long prior to the existence of the US and the Southern states in order that the abundant land could be exploited. For the South slavery was an inherited institution that pre-dated the South. Diaries and letters of soldiers fighting for the Confederacy and those fighting for the Union provide no evidence that the soldiers were fighting for or against slavery. Princeton historian, Pulitzer Prize winner, Lincoln Prize winner, president of the American Historical Association, and member of the editorial board of Encyclopedia Britannica, James M. McPherson, in his book based on the correspondence of one thousand soldiers from both sides, What They Fought For, 1861-1865, reports that they fought for two different understandings of the Constitution.
As for the Emancipation Proclamation, on the Union side, military officers were concerned that the Union troops would desert if the Emancipation Proclamation gave them the impression that they were being killed and maimed for the sake of blacks. That is why Lincoln stressed that the proclamation was a “war measure” to provoke an internal slave rebellion that would draw Southern troops off the front lines.
If we look carefully we can find a phony hook in the South Carolina Declaration of Causes of Secession (December 20, 1860) as long as we ignore the reasoning of the document. Lincoln’s election caused South Carolina to secede. During his campaign for president Lincoln used rhetoric aimed at the abolitionist vote. (Abolitionists did want slavery abolished for moral reasons, though it is sometimes hard to see their morality through their hate, but they never controlled the government.)
South Carolina saw in Lincoln’s election rhetoric intent to violate the US Constitution, which was a voluntary agreement, and which recognized each state as a free and independent state. After providing a history that supported South Carolina’s position, the document says that to remove all doubt about the sovereignty of states “an amendment was added, which declared that the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people.”
South Carolina saw slavery as the issue being used by the North to violate the sovereignty of states and to further centralize power in Washington. The secession document makes the case that the North, which controlled the US government, had broken the compact on which the Union rested and, therefore, had made the Union null and void. For example, South Carolina pointed to Article 4 of the US Constitution, which reads: “No person held to service or labor in one State, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall, in consequence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered up, on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due.” Northern states had passed laws that nullified federal laws that upheld this article of the compact. Thus, the northern states had deliberately broken the compact on which the union was formed.
The obvious implication was that every aspect of states’ rights protected by the 10th Amendment could now be violated. And as time passed they were, so South Carolina’s reading of the situation was correct.
The secession document reads as a defense of the powers of states and not as a defense of slavery. Here is the document: http://teachingamericanhistory.org/library/document/south-carolina-declaration-of-causes-of-secession/
Read it and see what you decide.
A court historian, who is determined to focus attention away from the North’s destruction of the US Constitution and the war crimes that accompanied the Constitution’s destruction, will seize on South Carolina’s use of slavery as the example of the issue the North used to subvert the Constitution. The court historian’s reasoning is that as South Carolina makes a to-do about slavery, slavery must have been the cause of the war.
As South Carolina was the first to secede, its secession document probably was the model for other states. If so, this is the avenue by which court historians, that is, those who replace real history with fake history, turn the war into a war over slavery.
Once people become brainwashed, especially if it is by propaganda that serves power, they are more or less lost forever. It is extremely difficult to bring them to truth. Just look at the pain and suffering inflicted on historian David Irving for documenting the truth about the war crimes committed by the allies against the Germans. There is no doubt that he is correct, but the truth is unacceptable.
The same is the case with the War of Northern Aggression. Lies masquerading as history have been institutionalized for 150 years. An institutionalized lie is highly resistant to truth.
Education has so deteriorated in the US that many people can no longer tell the difference between an explanation and an excuse or justification. In the US denunciation of an orchestrated hate object is a safer path for a writer than explanation. Truth is the casualty.
That truth is so rare everywhere in the Western World is why the West is doomed. The United States, for example, has an entire population that is completely ignorant of its own history.
As George Orwell said, the best way to destroy a people is to destroy their history.
Apparently Even Asians Can Be White Supremacists If They Are Named Robert Lee
ESPN has pulled an Asian-American named Robert Lee (Lee is a common name among Asians, for example, Bruce Lee) from announcing the University of Virginia/Wiliam & Mary footbal game in Charlottesville this Saturday because of his name.


NTS Notes: As I said in so many previous articles, the American "Civil War" was started in 1861 over the criminal central government in Washington DC trying to impose their "rights" over southern states in their attempts to fleece those states out of their revenues... It did become a war over "states rights" and the rights which is written right in the US Constitution for states to oppose such criminality and their rights to secede from the American Union..

The facts are laid out in Paul's article that Lincoln's government did not even bring forward the "Emancipation Proclamation" until late 1862, as a further weapon against the south... The original idea was to have a black slave uprising take place and force the southern armies to have to capitulate due to the need to suddenly stop an internal uprising back home....  And again the facts are that the Proclamation freed ONLY the blacks that were in the Confederate States at that time... The Proclamation did not free any slaves that were in slave states within the Union at that point including Maryland and Delaware....The real freeing of all slaves in the entire United States did not take place until after the war was ended in Union victory with the passage of the 13th amendment to the US Constitution...This is fact and not fiction..

I again would request that anyone living in America that has to confront those numb-skull and brain dead "Liberals" out there that are destroying monuments and trying to rewrite (or destroy) history, to ask them to actually READ and STUDY the facts about their history before they do such destruction.... The wiping out of history has no goal other than to turn people into mindless automatons that do not know the truths about their past...

I have always said this as fact..."If we do not learn from history, then we are doomed to repeat it"... And sadly what we are witnessing happen right now in America is exactly that...

One other point of conjecture here... I have always wondered what the criminal Jews who are most definitely behind all of this destruction of our history have to gain?  Apparently these monsters want real history abolished so that they can impose THEIR version of history that includes their bullshit "genocides" of the last century... And of course THEIR history would indeed hide their criminal pasts and how THEY are the ones that are responsible for so much destruction and death in our past.... Yes, this is apparently their master plan...

More to come
