Self-Destruct – an essay by Red Beckman

Once upon a time, there was a very powerful nation with hundreds of millions of citizens. Those millions of people went to bed one night without a hint as to what was happening while they were sleeping. The morning news informed the people their government had dissolved itself during the night. The people were still there and the land was still there, but the governmental system had self-destructed. History had repeated itself again and “We the people” of these united States of America are making the same mistakes that brought down the political system known as the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). This little essay will bring another explanation of what really brought down the USSR. However, the political science professors in our universities will give you an entirely different explanation of what caused the demise of the USSR.

One of the greatest movies of all times told the story of the Prophet Moses and his confrontation with the Pharaoh of Egypt. The nation of Egypt had become very powerful and rich. The Pharaoh of Egypt was the god of the Egyptian people; the Egyptians worshipped Pharaoh as their god. Pharaoh used the slave labor of the children of Israel to provide a high standard of living for the people who worshipped god Pharaoh. Moses went to Pharaoh and asked permission to leave Egypt. Pharaoh considered the slave labor of the children of Israel to be an asset that produced the wealth he was using to buy the worship of the Egyptian people. When Pharaoh refused to let the children of Israel go, the waters of Egypt turned into blood. The fish in the river died and the river gave off a very bad stench. The Egyptian people prayed to their god Pharaoh to save them from this terrible problem, but their prayers were not answered.

There were ten different disasters that came upon the people of Egypt, but the people’s prayers to their god Pharaoh were not answered. Most of us know the story of how the children of Israel crossed the Red Sea on dry ground, but the god of the Egyptians was drowned with his army. Pharaoh’s government became just another wreck on the junk heap of history.

The account of the destruction of Pharaoh’s government is considered ancient history. The account of what happened to the USSR is very recent history, which happened during the last one hundred years. It was about ninety years ago when the communist revolution in Russia brought about the creation of the USSR. The politicians who controlled the new political system made many changes.

The people of Russia became the victims of a brutal dictatorship. Vladimir Lenin was the first to sit in the top position. When he died, Josef Stalin took his place. These two politicians were responsible for the murders of millions of people. If you believed there was a Creator God, then you were forcibly removed to the gulags for slave labor. “Get your mind right, comrade!”

Communism is a belief system that teaches there is no Creator God and that government will control everything, including the minds of the people. In other words, communism is a belief system that is contrary to a belief system teaching there is a Creator God. Communism is just another religion created by evil men. People who believe that communism is a good political idea can produce no evidence communism ever resulted in an orderly, people-friendly society.

Now we want to examine why the Pharaoh government and the USSR did not survive their mistakes. We must go to the Holy Bible and read the Ten Commandments as our Creator God gave them to Moses. These commandments are found in the 20th chapter of the Book of Exodus, verses 3 through 5.
3. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
4. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or in the waters under the earth:
5. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I, the Lord thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

The Egyptian people worshipped Pharaoh as their god. When you read the text in your Bible, you will note our Creator wrote the Ten Commandments on two stone tablets. It was our capital ‘G’ God who was doing the writing. “Thou shalt not have any other gods before Me.” There is one capital ‘G’ God (singular), and there are gods (plural). Pharaoh was exposed as a false god when he could not answer the prayers of the Egyptian people. When Pharaoh could not answer the prayers of those who worshipped him, he was discredited. The government known as the USSR denied the existence of an Almighty Creator God. The USSR told the people the government would take care of them from the cradle to the grave. Then, in less than seventy-five years, the USSR found itself unable to answer the prayers of the Russian people. The Reader’s Digest told how the Siberian coal miners had not received paychecks in six months. The Russian Military was not being fully paid, and the nation’s economy was falling apart. Finally, in the month of December, 1991, the USSR dissolved itself overnight.

How does this tie into the first commandment? We go back and read the text again. Our Creator wrote on those stone tablets, and we quote: “FOR I AM A JEALOUS GOD.” God does not tolerate any FALSE god that tries to take the true God’s position.

All through history, we have the record of many political systems that did not recognize the true God as being the Highest Power. In 1963, the US Supreme Court handed down a decision prohibiting all prayers to our Creator God in the public schools. The author of this essay made it a point many years ago to read that court decision. The court used a lot of verbiage to say, “Thou shalt not have any other god before the federal god”. Our federal government will be tossed onto the junk heap of history because our God is still a jealous God. The government of the United States of America will join the USSR, the Roman Empire, Pharaoh’s government, and all the others who tried to be as God.

As we watch our once great nation stumble and stagger on the world stage – as we watch politicians try to solve our economic problems with fiat money – as we hear the experts explain our predicament – we who believe in the Creator God know that we are seeing a jealous God at work. The US Supreme Court has declared our federal government to be a god. The Wall Street bankers and the big three automakers are praying to the federal god to save them. We, who KNOW there is a Creator God, know the present federal government is self-destructing. The Egyptian Pharaoh was worshiped by the people, but Pharaoh could not save the people from the true God’s judgment on Egypt. We the people, of these united States of America, have allowed our government to become a false god. We, who know there is a Creator God, recognize the collapse of our prosperity bubble as the beginning of God’s judgment on our nation. We should be hearing the “REPENT or PERISH” message from our nation’s pulpits, but that is not happening. This tells us our national pain will become more serious on a daily basis. As millions more become unemployed, they will be praying to the federal god to save them. The federal god will not be able to answer those prayers. When the federal god cannot answer the prayers of the people, the federal government will join all the other failed systems on the junk heap of history.

Secular history records the rise and fall of many political systems. Biblical history gives us the record of many failed kingdoms and empires as well. We who know there is a Creator God, understand that the federal god will be totally discredited and discarded, because it is fast-coming to a point where it will not be able to answer the prayers of the farmer, the big three auto makers, or the Wall Street gangsters. We who believe in a Creator God, know exactly what is happening to the federal god. Those who expect the federal god to save them from their economic troubles will find themselves without a god. Secular and Biblical history is the recorded evidence of a Creator God and His position as the Highest Power.

Even so, come Lord Jesus.

16th Amendment – To Whom It May Concern

There seems to be some confusion about the why, who, where, when and how the research proving that the 16th amendment (income tax) to the Constitution for the united States of America was accomplished. I will try to clarify.

Late one night, June of 1980, I was having a lengthy phone conversation with another patriotic Montanan. Sam Bitz asked me whether I believe the 16th amendment had been lawfully declared ratified? I responded by saying; “that our tax-consuming public servants had a poor track record for truth”. Sam said; “we are going to find out if the 16th amendment was properly ratified as a Constitutional Amendment”

Sam enlisted several other farmers, ranchers and business people who called themselves the MONTANA HISTORIANS. I won’t name them for fear of leaving someone out. They used phone calls and letters to archivists and record keepers in the forty-eight States that were in existence in 1913. They requested copies of State Senate and House journals that recorded the debates and votes on the proposed 16th amendment.

In the fall of 1980 one of the researchers discovered Senate Document 240 in the Montana State Law library. When I wrote the book ‘Born Again Republic” in the fall of 1980, I wrote on pages 98 and 99 about the 16th amendment not being lawfully ratified. Senate Document 240 proves our Public Servants knew the 16th amendment was a fraud.

By January 1983, the Montana Historians had collected the House and Senate journals for the 48 states. Some records were more complete than others but the evidence of fraud was unimpeachable. I published two books in 1983 and wrote of the fraud in both. “Do Unto The IRS As They Would Do Unto You” and “The IRS And The Black Robed Cover-up” were the two books.

In March of 1983, I was called as a witness in an Income Tax criminal trial in

Fort Worth, Texas. I had copies of the documents collected by the Montana Historians and I testified that the 16th amendment and the Individual Income Tax are a fraud. The Federal Judge would not let the jury hear my testimony.

In April 1983 I was in Chicago and Bill Benson and an attorney, Andy Spiegle purchased an extra set of the documents which I had with me. In June 1983 I testified in the Allen Lee Buchta criminal prosecution in Hammond, Indiana Federal Court. Andy Spiegle defended the Buchta case with Bill Benson as his paralegal. Andy tried to enter the 16th amendment documentation but Federal District Judge Moody refused to accept the evidence because it was not certified. Judge Moody should have recessed the trial until the Justice department checked our evidence for accuracy. Allan Lee Buchta was found ’guilty’ and sent to jail. Judge Moody became a accessory to the worst criminal cover-up in our nations history.

As a result of Judge Moody and his failure, Bill Benson agreed to travel to the 48 State capitals and collect certified copies of all the documents concerning the ratification of the 16th and 17th amendments. The Montana Historians had also collected the evidence of the fraudulent ratification of the17th amendment. Bill Benson spent several months of 1984 traveling and completed the 48th State in Olympia, Washington Christmas eve of 1984.

The Montana Historians are not getting the credit they deserve. It was the fall of 1980 when Senate Document 240 was found and it was more than sufficient evidence proving the 16th amendment was a fraud. The Montana Historians did not stop there. They continued to collect the Senate and House Journals for the 48 States. They have established a place of honor in our history that is well deserved.

Federal Judges and the US Justice department have established a place of dishonor in our history. They will be known as criminals who have perpetrated the most serious COVER-UP in our history. Every victim of IRS oppression and prosecution need to know how unknown, patriotic ranchers, farmers and businessmen uncovered a pattern of criminal activity by unfaithful public servants.
