Sally Hemings, a slave girl in the Thomas Jefferson household is regarded in the history books of today more than the Founding Fathers. Why? Because of the intentional misrepresentation forged during that time by yellow journalist James T. Callender and repeatedly published all over America.
Communism insists that Capitalism be destroyed, along with all prominent leaders and the very history of America.
On January 10, 1963, The Congressional Record published the 45 current Communist goals that had been taken from the Cleon Skousen book, The Naked Communist. Most of those goals have been accomplished while we slept.
Goal 30 reads: "Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the common man," and Goal 31: "Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the 'big picture'."
That also means attacking legitimate historians who stand in the way of their falsehoods. "To conquer a people, erase their history;" Communist saying.
In his latest book, "The Jefferson Lies," with subtitle, "Exposing the Myths You've Always Believed about Thomas Jefferson," author David Barton, the respected and thorough Christian historian, finds himself under attack as the debate now gets down, dirty and more desperate.
Helen Trautman of Pittsburgh, a regular contributor, just mailed a clip from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, headlined: "America a Christian Nation? Think Again." (4/9/12)
Columnist Ruth Ann Dailey scribbles her own inaccurate description of Jefferson, dismisses David Barton as a "repeat offender in manipulating religious history," and in another line refers to, "Barton's false claims."
How's that again? Ms. Dailey also took a shot at movie star, Kirk Cameron for making his documentary, "Monumental" regarding the Christian founding of America. The Communists are committed to silence all such history.
While these Socialists try to disguise their yarns as 'journalism,' no citations are given as source material. They said it, that's all that matters.
As Barton points out in his book, 'Not even a student at a community junior college would be permitted to submit a research paper with the same lack of primary source documentation, but somehow it is acceptable for professors at a noted academic institution to do so in a nationally published book."
Unlike these Marxists with an agenda, David Barton has pages upon pages of source material and documentation. In other words, PROOF.
In this blockbuster book The Jefferson Lies, there are 45 packed pages in tiny print documenting everything he wrote. It is all backed up, something that the Communist propagandists fail to do because there IS NO documentation for the lies they try to pass as truth.
The Sally Hemings Fabrication: Barton's book documents how the media silenced the discovery that the DNA cited to "prove" Jefferson was the father of Hemings' children was not the DNA of Thomas Jefferson that had been proclaimed earlier as a match..
Furthermore they neglected to even take or request a DNA sample from him. There was not even a sexual encounter between Jefferson and Hemings. The author's back-up material confirms this truth that cannot be disputed..
Barton's book provides many "AHA!" moments. Leftists tried to convince America that Jefferson was so against God that he cut out the important parts of his Bible regarding Jesus and the miracles. The remaining Bible was called The Jefferson Bible, one without any significant spiritual truth.
Jefferson had cut out those passages and pasted them in another book so he would have all of those Scriptures of salvation and miracles in one place without having to go through the begotten and begats.
This writer urges all Christians...all patriots to get this book without delay and read it through to find out the truth about our nation and our Christian heritage. And the reader will find exactly what was behind "The Separation of Church and State." It is all laid out clearly with documentation. Barton's excellent writing and research is easy and pleasurable to read. And it shows who we really are as Americans.
The Jefferson Lies, David Barton, Thomas Nelson Publishers ($22.99) is available in bookstores including Barnes & Noble and on Amazon.com. It should be in every church library, Christian School and in the library of everyone who loves God and The United States of America.
