Wolves in sheep’s' clothing occur all of the time in our day and age. There are a lot of them. Their names include Tim LaHaye, the late Jerry Falwell, Sun Myung Moon, Benny Hinn, Kathryn Kuhman, Paul Crouch, Chuck Smith, Hal Lindsey, Rick Joyner, Paula White, TBN, Calvary Chapel, etc. Benny Hinn promotes "love gifts" to financially advance his "ministry." These people have links to the Pope, the Knights of Malta, the CNP, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and other like minded organizations. The Ecumenical Council for National is a leader of the religious establishment in the Right paradigm. Tim LaHaye made the blasphemous remark to Moon that: "...Your suffering will cleanse the sins of America." Sun Myung Moon claimed to be the Messiah, gave Falwell $3.5 million, and done other nefarious acts before. LaHaye promotes the Left Behind series (it promotes the Jesuit-invented pretribulation rapture. Even the early Church and the scriptures talk about the saints suffering martyrdom during the reign of the Antichrist). Moon was once crown as the Messiah of the world in a heretical fashion (in March 23, 2004 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building. Many people were present like TBN President Paul Crouch, Reverend Jerry Falwell, 33rd Degree Freemason Robert Schuller, Kenneth Copeland, Pat Boone, and others). Moon said that Jesus failed on his mission to Earth, but Moon has not. This is similar to the Freemason Joseph Smith claiming to represent the fulfillment of the church prevailing over Hell. Moon promotes his Unification Church. He even meet with the late Pope John Paul II before. We need to trust in the Lord God alone not in man. The Council for National Policy is an Ecumenical group indeed that tries to control the religious compositions of man. Its made up of so-called Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Charismatics, Catholics, Mormon, Masons, etc. It has 500+ members and they meet one or twice per year. The group has CFR members in them when they claim to be an alternative to the Council on Foreign Relations. The Knights of Malta are linked to the CNP. In fact, Jerry Boykin (an ally of Rick Santorum and Tim LaHaye. Rick Santorum is running for President and he's a strong war monger and pro-austerity, deficit hawk advocate) and Rick Joyner are members of the Knights of Malta.

The continued use of the misnomer African American to refer to
"all'
black Americans is a 'continued' misuse of the misnomer. The
Smithsonian's so called museum is another blatant attempt to redefine a
group of people(s).

All black individuals are not alike, and they, the descendants of black Africans
who were here before the Pilgrims landed are simply Americans who happen
to be of black African descent just as other Americans are of some
ethnic descent.

Just because their ancestors were not a part of the
"huddled masses", but a part of the masses that were huddled, it does
not make them any less an American notwithstanding
all efforts, no matter how, who ,what or even the Smithsonian
to redefine them. So if white is still white, then black is still black.

To even use the misnomer to apply to slaves, and freedmen who lived during
the time that black Africans were enslaved in the USA is simply redacted history. Slaves were
property to be sold and resold, they certainly were not Americans. They
were black African slaves. It is disingenuous to them and to their
descendants who toiled, fought., bled and died to become Americans.
Not Africans, but Americans of black African descent.

A people should
be proud of their origin, but prouder still of the heritage that they
are born into, first and foremost American. So if white is still white,
with various hues, colors, shapes, sizes, values and backgrounds, then
black is still black with various hues, colors, shapes, sizes, values
and backgrounds. A non hyphenated American. An American who happens to
be of a hue that is referred to as black. just as there are Americans of
a certain hue that are referred to as white.

The
Smithsonian . the entrepreneurial hustlers and pundits, academics, the
politicians, and those who are connected with the museum are as
incorrect with the title as one of the inscriptions was/is on the MLK
monument.. More correctly, it is a museum of BLACK American history and
culture.

THE CONSISTENT APPLICATION OF A MISNOMER DOES NOT MAGICALLY TURN IT INTO A FACT.
