MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. I knew Dr. King as a young man. His mom was a “Call Customer” of mine, when I sold shoes at Davison’s downtown. The following story from Unholy Seduction is true, and it was my experience. I used it in the novel.
 
“Then, newsworthy events began to impact our lives. When we heard that Martin Luther King, Jr., had been shot and killed in Memphis, we were completely unprepared to learn the news. His execution made me think about what I had been doing when JFK was assassinated in Dallas—just up the road from Midlothian. Like Kennedy’s murder five years earlier, schools were closed out of respect for Dr. King.
 
Being a lifelong resident of Atlanta and a local pastor, Dr. King’s funeral was scheduled for a few days later—not far from where we lived. Not having to teach that day, I decided to attend. Because Jolene had a cold and couldn’t go to daycare, Val needed to remain at home, so I went alone.
 
When I arrived, I had no idea hundreds of thousands of people would be there—all stunned and heartbroken by the assassination. In my naïveté, I thought there might be a few thousand, but I was mistaken. There was a sea of humanity.
I marched with thousands of others—nameless, faceless people—who walked with me up Courtland Avenue past Georgia State University, where I considered going to graduate school at night.
 
The procession was about twenty across and many miles deep. The most interesting thing about the march was how silent the people were. Nobody talked. All that could be heard was the sound of feet shuffling on the pavement—thousands of feet. Only a few cried, and those who did, weren’t demonstrative.
Most were too stunned to do anything other than put one foot in front of the other. Nobody was told to be quiet. Everybody just seemed to realize that being silent was what we were supposed to do. Besides, there was nothing to say. The impact this silent march made upon each person was indelible. It was something none of us would ever forget.
 
As we passed the State Capitol, I saw vigilant state troopers standing, side-by-side, four feet apart. Each was holding a rifle, as they surrounded the building, protecting Governor Lester Maddox—my arch-segregationist former donor. As I walked by, I remember thinking his side had won. He had all the guns and all of the political power. He was in charge of the state, while his ally, Governor Wallace, was making a surprisingly strong third party bid for the Presidency. Adding to their victory, Dr. King was dead—murdered by a segregationist.
 
Witnessing the troopers, I finally admitted to myself that I had been wrong to take Governor Maddox’s money. I had justified my actions, accepting his donation on three separate occasions, because Crusade needed the funds. Looking at the State Troopers as I passed, I felt like I had been as fraudulent as Hixson Orr.
 
In my heart, I knew there was never a right way to do a wrong thing, but I disregarded this truth by depositing Maddox’s checks. As I walked by, I felt tainted and dirty, as unclean as the guys who were ordered to take a shower before being examined for their Army physical.
 
Grief stricken, I’ve never felt more ashamed of myself than that day. Finally admitting how unethical my actions had been grieved me, but it also felt cleansing.
 
Based on the perspective I had that day, segregation had won, defeating racial equality. “Darkies” would be kept in their place, and I was there to witness it—just another bystander who refused to make a stand for what was right. I felt awful. I talked about God’s love all the time, while carefully disregarding another aspect of His character—justice.
 
Thinking about how the segregationists had won didn’t make me angry—not like it did many others. I was too numb and grief stricken for that, especially that day. It was such a sad time, but I did wonder why God had allowed it to happen? It was a question I’m sure others were also asking.
 
Driving home, I knew I wanted my life to count for more than this. Being in the procession rejuvenated my desire to be part of Full Armor Assembly, by joining Brother Al in La Grande Boca.
Now in my mid-twenties, in many ways, I was still young and inexperienced. I didn’t understand how a martyr’s death could irreversibly change things. Reflecting back on those events decades later, Dr. King’s dream and vision for America has come true—at least much of it. The day of his funeral, it didn’t seem like this could possibly happen.
 
Governor Lester Maddox’s world has disappeared. Only a handful of people even remember who he was. Dr. King’s birthday is a national holiday.
 
Although the Governor was physically safe as the mourners passed by—surrounded by troopers carrying weapons—his world began to disintegrate soon thereafter. Few remember anything about segregation. Virtually nobody can enumerate the specifics of what Maddox’s generation of segregationists believed. Obviously, after three hour-long meetings with him, I can remember, but I never took what he had to say seriously. Nobody took Lester Maddox’s worldview seriously—at least, nobody sane.
 
Dr. King’s dream, by way of contrast, remains alive and powerful. In some ways, my experience at the funeral that day may have been one of the most powerful examples of victorious Christianity I’ve ever witnessed. It was victory coming from defeat, new life emerging from death. It was a transformational moment in time—something I’ll never forget—something that can never be taken from me, despite the fact that I didn’t even come close to the front of the line.
 
Despite this, I learned a great lesson. Love trumps hate every time, particularly when hate seems to have the upper hand. You can kill a man, but you can never kill his ideas—especially when millions embrace them. Internalizing what I had learned, I matured a little that day; I’m sure of it.
 
Later, when I walked into the house, Val caught my eye. When she looked at me, she stopped. She could tell something dramatic had happened. She didn’t say a word, but in our silent communication, both of us realized that moving to California was back on the table.

COMMON SENSE: On his staff, Special Investigator Robert Mueller has sixteen full time prosecutors. He has impanelled two separate grand juries, but there is no underlying crime for him to investigate. For one year, despite all of the clamoring of President Trump’s critics, there hasn’t been even one documentable crime. Nevertheless, in their bitterness, Trump’s enemies are determined to drive him out of office, even if it destroys the most stable democracy in the history of the world.
 
Just as bad, the Special Investigator was appointed because the President fired a corrupt Director of the FBI. In retaliation, Comey, sleaze that he is, leaked privileged information to the “New York Times,” for the express purpose of having an Independent Investigator appointed—all in vengeful retaliation for his legitimate firing.
 
Meanwhile, there has been no Special Investigator appointed to seek justice for those who were unlawfully unmasked by senior Obama administration appointees, which definitely is a crime. There hasn’t been a grand jury impanelled to investigate Hillary’s uranium deal with Russia, her pay-to-play access to the State Department, or her charitable foundation that gives less than 5% of its funds to worthy causes.
 
Despite all of this, Trump is making America great again. The economy is booming, due to Trump’s deregulation. Once again, under his leadership, our allies trust us, and our enemies fear us, which is the exact opposite to the record of the Obama administration.
 
Like Nehemiah, Trump has to rebuild the walls for our nation, while constantly having to fight off his enemies, but this is exactly what Trump is doing. He is being success for the same reason Nehemiah was. Trump has the favor of Almighty God. Because the Progressives do not, all they can do is chafe, just as Sanballat did toward Nehemiah twenty-five hundred years ago.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Here’s a suggestion: With General John Kelly becoming Chief of Staff, move Attorney General Sessions over to become Secretary of Homeland Security. Appoint Ted Cruz to become the new Attorney General during the August recess.
 
That way, since Cruz had nothing to do with your campaign, you will have an Attorney General who does not have to recuse himself. Cruz is fearless and will not let Special Counsel Mueller investigate beyond a very narrow scope of inquiry. You would also be throwing a bone to the Never-Trumpers, because Cruz is one of their favorites. It will position you nicely for 2020.
 
In this scenario, everybody wins except for the Democrats, the Deep State, and the mainstream media.

COMMON SENSE: Former CIA Director John Brennan colluded with former spies to sabotage the Trump campaign, and there is hard evidence to prove it.
 
According to American Spectator, “An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s.
 
Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.
 
John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump.”
 
Brennan needs to do hard time at Leavenworth. This is real and the DOJ must prosecute—period.

COMMON SENSE: Representatives Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters are mounting an effort to have President Trump impeached, tried in the Senate, and removed from office. That’s not going to happen, but it will dominate the news and make the Progressive media believe Trump’s base has abandoned him.

That hasn’t happened, nor will it. The “Make America Great Again” movement is gaining strength, not diminishing, as the fools in the media believe. Pelosi and the Democrats are certain they will retake the House of Representatives next year, but that’s not going to happen either. In the Senate, the Republican majority will actually increase. You can count on it.
This photo tells you the reason why. Trump loves America, and he is proud of us. President Obama, the consummate Progressive globalist, was ashamed of us and of American leadership in the world. Because Trump’s naysayers only converse among themselves, they have no idea what is really happening across the fruited plain. I do.
We are taking our nation back from the anti-American, anti-God, anti-morality Progressives one skirmish at a time. Our effort is ongoing and relentless, but the result is certain. Trust me about this; I know what I am talking about.

COMMON SENSE: Two men, Peter W. Smith and Klaus Eberwein, who were about to testify against Hillary Clinton, in completely different incidences, have apparently chosen to commit suicide instead. How convenient for Hillary.
 
Smith tied a plastic bag over his head and said there was “no foul play whatsoever.” Thank God for that. It certainly lets Hillary of the hook, doesn’t it? What a relief!
 
Klaus Eberwein chose the standard method of suicide for those who oppose Hillary—a gunshot wound to the head.
 
But what has happened to the documents these men prepare for their testimony? Has all the evidence disappeared too? Just as important, how many more people have to die at the hands of America’s Ahab and Jezebel—Bill and Hillary Clinton—before they are stopped?
 
Although murder is a state crime, and Klaus Eberwein died in Haiti, RICO crimes (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) have federal jurisdiction. Lynch and Comey are gone. It’s time Attorney General Sessions does something about these evil, corrupt people. How many more have to die before justice is served? The list of “questionable deaths” at the hands of the Clintons is already longer than your arm. Sessions, do your job and conduct a real investigation.

COMMON SENSE: The Donald Trump, Jr. story is a non-story. At worst, he made a bad decision to meet with the female Russian lawyer, which is certainly not a crime. The woman had no information about Hillary to give; there was no money exchanged; and there was no follow-up meeting.

 
That it was poor judgment on his part I’ll give you, but this is much ado about nothing. What is serious, however, is the continuous discord this produces in the nation. It also undermines all efforts to normalize our relationship with Russia, which can have very serious consequences in the future.
 
Regardless of this, the Progressive media is obsessed with discrediting President Trump no matter what he does. So are some Republicans. The viciousness never abates, which means we have to hold our ground daily against the media’s relentless attacks. None of this is healthy for our nation, but it is what it is. We will fight back—trust me about this. We will.
