Donation Amount: $25.00

In 1746, 70 ships with 13,000 troops sailed from France to lay waste to the American colonies. Massachusetts Governor William Shirley proclaimed a Day of Fasting. What happened next was unexplainable!

After the Battle of Monongahela, George Washington wrote from Fort Cumberland to his younger brother, John Augustine Washington, July 18, 1755:

“But by the All-Powerful Dispensations of Providence, I have been protected beyond all human probability or expectation; for I had four bullets through my coat, and two horses shot under me, yet escaped unhurt, although death was leveling my companions on every side of me!”

How did Thomas Jefferson's resolution for a Day of Fasting on June 1, 1774, lead to the forming of the Continental Congress, and eventually Independence?

Read how in 1781 the providential rising of three rivers in 10 days allowed Americans to escape British General Cornwallis.

Or the uncanny way in which Benedict Arnold's planned betrayal of West Point was discovered.

George Washington exclaimed: "The Hand of Providence has been so conspicuous in all this (the course of the war) that he must be worse than an infidel that lacks faith."

Ben Franklin declared: "In the beginning of the Contest with Great Britain...we had daily prayer in this room for Divine protection...All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending Providence in our favor."

In 1865, President Lincoln proclaimed a Day of Fasting for April 30. What freak accident happened two days later which changed the course of the Civil War?

What did Woodrow Wilson declared as the U.S. entered WWI?

Or Herbert Hoover during the Great Depression?

Or FDR, Eisenhower, MacArthur and Patton during WWII?

Or Truman during the Korean War?

When Apollo 13 was lost in space, what happened after President Nixon called all of America to pray?

Donation Amount: $25.00

"The story of the future is written in the past."-Lord Acton, 1877. Did you know Greek philosopher Plato predicted democracy would degenerate into anarchy once people lost their virtue, then a tyrant would arise? Did you know POWER inevitably concentrates into the hands of ONE person? What was the first nation in recorded history that attempted to rule itself without a king? (Hint: they left from Egypt around c.1400 BC). How do democracies and republics get taken over by tyrants? Learn predictive insights from Ancient Israel, Athenian Democracy, Roman Republic, Machiavelli, Hegel, Marx and Saul Alinsky. The rare experiments in self-government only worked as long as citizens had virtue. When virtue is gone, chaos ensues, followed by a call for a strong leader to restore order - but he yields to the temptation to become a tyrant. Read how Caesar "fundamentally changed" Rome's Republic into a dictatorship? George Washington warned in his Farewell Address, 1796: "Disorders and miseries ... incline the minds of men to seek security ... in the absolute power of an Individual ... [who] turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty ... and thus to create ... a real despotism." Ben Franklin observed June 2, 1787: "There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh - get first all the people's money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants forever ... I am apprehensive that the government of the States may, in future times, end in a monarchy." Yale President Ezra Stiles stated May 8, 1783: "Whatever mutations may arise in the United States, perhaps hereditary monarchy and a standing army will be the last." President William Henry Harrison, warned March 4, 1841: "The tendency of power to increase itself, particularly when exercised by a single individual ... would terminate in virtual monarchy." Of communist dictatorship, Vladimir Lenin said: "The goal of Socialism is Communism." Can 6,000 years of history help predict the future? This volume is an in-depth review of the rise and fall of great republics, kings and tyrants, with profound quotes from notable philosophers, statesmen and historians, allowing the reader to gain powerful insights from the past into what is happening in the world today. An amazing overview of 6,000 years of recorded history, taking you from the Tower of Babel to a One World Global Government. By the end of this book, you will be one step closer to answering the question, "is history repeating itself?"
Change to Chains-The 6,000 Year Quest for Control -Vol. 1- Rise of the Republic - William J Federer (Paperback)
Donation Amount: $25.00

How did past civilizations rise and fall? How rare is America's experiment with a republic? With every crisis, is power being taken away from "the people" and transferred to the central government? Does history give us a clue as to where all this is headed? George Washington warned in his Farewell Address, 1796: "Disorders and miseries...gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an Individual...[who] turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public...and thus to create, whatever the form of government, a real despotism." Ronald Reagan stated at St. John's University, NY, March 28, 1985: "Government that is big enough to give you everything you want is more likely to simply take everything you've got." Woodrow Wilson warned in New York, 1912: "The history of Liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it. When we resist, therefore, the concentration of power, we are resisting the powers of death, because concentration of power is what always precedes the destruction of human liberties." In the nearly 6,000 years of recorded human history, power, like gravity, seems to inevitably concentrate into the hands of one individual, sometimes called pharoah, caesar, czar, kaiser, king, emperor, monarch, sultan, president or communist dictator. No matter what the autocratic leader's particular title is, the default setting for human government throughout history has most often been monarchy. When power is concentrated, the State is supreme. When power is separated, the individual is supreme. America's founders had a unique window of opportunity in the long train of world history, to maximize the freedom and opportunity of the individual. Ronald Reagan stated in 1961: "In this country of ours took place the greatest revolution that has ever taken place in the world's history...Every other revolution simply exchanged one set of rulers for another." Is past behavior the best indicator of future performance? What can we expect? Find out as world history comes alive from a whole new perspective in "Change to Chains - the 6000 year quest for control - Volume I: Rise of the Republic."
Who is the King in America? And Who are the Counselors to the King? - William J Federer (Paperback)
Donation Amount: $25.00

Who is the King in America? -And Who are the Counselors to the King? An Overview of 6,000 Years of History and Why America is Unique

Before you answer, do you know what the most common form of government in world history?

From the invention of writing around 3,300 BC, the world has mostly been ruled by kings.

Though called by different names: Pharaohs, Chieftains, Emperors, Caesars, Sultans, Khans, Maharajas, Monarchs, and Dictators, they act the same.

Power, like gravity, concentrates into the hand of one person, who rewards his friends and punishes his enemies.

In Socialist and Communist countries, too, though professing equality, they inevitably end up being ruled by dictators.

The King of England was the most powerful king the planet had seen. When Americans got the chance, they set up a government as far from a king as possible.

They flipped it and put the people in charge.

A "republic" is where the people are king, ruling through their representatives.

The Constitution, in effect, is a collection of hurdles to prevent power from snapping back into the hands of a king.

Where did founders get their idea of people ruling themselves?

-England's Magna Carta; -Roman Republic; -Athenian Democracy; and ultimately, -Ancient Israel.

Israel, during its initial 400 years out of Egypt, was the first well-recorded instance of a nation ruled without a king.

Did this influence colonial pastors who founded New England?

You will be surprised!

What ingredients are needed for a nation to function without a king?

Is the God of Bible an integral part?

What is the difference between a democracy and a republic. How do they rise & fall?

Did political activists develop tactics to help them fall: Machiavelli, Robespierre, Hegel, Marx, & Alinsky?

Are these tactics being used in America today?

-Identify racial & class fault lines running through society.
-Fan real or perceived injustices into flames, creating tension & unrest.
-When domestic violence erupts, everyone is so desperate to have order restored they relinquish freedoms to the state.

How is domestic unrest created? Agitators, labor organizers, community organizers, agent provocateurs [provoking agents].

Former Presidential political advisor David Axelrod explained in a NPR interview, April 19, 2010:

"In Chicago, there was an old tradition of throwing a brick through your own campaign office window, and then calling a press conference to say that you've been attacked."

Forty-five countries fell to communist dictators this way.

Joseph Stalin stated:

"Crisis alone permitted the authorities to demand – and obtain – total submission and all necessary sacrifices from its citizens."

Discover the keys to defeating these tactics and preserving the freedoms of America's republic!

The surprising answers, and more, are in the book "Who is the King in America? And Who are the Counselors to the King?-An Overview of 6,000 Years of History & Why America is Unique."
