An Open Letter To Kelleigh Nelson At News With Views
Published: Thursday, April 6, 2017
Thank you very much for making me look good. I know that was not your intention. Your intention was to discredit, disparage, denigrate, and destroy me. But you actually did just the opposite. So, thank you.
The title of your column, “News With Views Response To Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s Lies,” suggests you were not simply writing your own sentiments but were writing on behalf of Paul Walter and News With Views. So, I must assume that you are either paid staff or part of the management team. If so, I would think the honest thing to do would be to disclose this relationship.
In the very first sentence of your column, you said my articles were “anti-Semitic.” By calling my fact-based, well-researched columns regarding Zionism “anti-Semitic,” you told the world that you are unable to address this issue with reason and integrity, much less with scriptural knowledge and acumen. Name-calling, especially the hackneyed label of “anti-Semitic,” is what people do when they cannot discuss the issue with intelligence. And in the next sentence when you state, “Mr. Walter said they’d be happy to print any other articles, but they receive too many complaints and lose readers when Baldwin’s anti-Israel articles appear on the website, even when the editor includes a disclaimer,” you proved my assertion that Paul is pandering to readers and that the goal of News With Views (NWV) is NOT to “shatter illusion” with reality but to ingratiate its views to the tastes (and financial gifts) of readers--even if it means promoting illusion. That one sentence proves that the goal of NWV is not the proclamation of truth but catering the message to a particular donor base.
Let me ask you, Kelleigh, how many readers has NWV lost since people found out that Paul Walter is censoring me? But it really doesn’t matter how many readers have abandoned NWV over this blatant censorship of one of its longest-running columnists, does it? And why not? Because NWV is all about covering for and pandering to Zionists such as yourself.
Of course, in the title and body of your hit piece, you repeatedly called me a liar. Kelleigh, I’ve been writing columns for NWV for 15 years. Obviously, Paul Walter believed me to be a truth teller. He even asked me to give NWV an “exclusive first,” which meant I sent my weekly columns to NWV a day before sending it to any other publication, including MY OWN WEBSITE. And the scores and scores of people who have written NWV to tell them that they would no longer read NWV was because they know that I write the truth no matter what people think or whether people like what I write or not. I’ve never pandered to ANY audience; and I won’t start pandering now.
Frankly, Kelleigh, you were speaking about something of which you have absolutely NO PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE. Were you in on the phone call with Paul Walter and me? No! You have no firsthand knowledge whatsoever about who said what or when. And I think most people who read your pathetic attack piece saw that little reality right away.
I have been preaching, teaching, and writing truth for over 40 years. Why would I lie about this? What would I have to gain? NOTHING. The publisher of NWV told both me (on November 30, 2016 at 3:09 pm MST) and my personal assistant (on March 23, 2017 at 3:31 pm MDT) the story about losing a $1000 per month donation if he continued to publish my columns that were critical of Israel. My PA transcribed his comments as he said them to her. She is VERY efficient. This means he told the story TWICE to two different people in two different phone calls. And the publisher himself told me that this donor was Jewish. Think: How else could I even know this? I suppose it's possible that this publisher suffers from some sort of cognitive impairment and, therefore, truly cannot remember saying it; but that doesn’t change the fact that he did. Do you really think I could make something like this up? And, again, why would I? What would I have to gain?
When you think of it, a $1000 per month donation to an organization as large as NWV is not that much money. And the amount of money is totally irrelevant. To me, it has nothing to do with money. It takes a lot of money to operate a business like NWV. I’m sure everyone understands that. I couldn’t care less how much money NWV takes in. When good people are engaged in a good fight, I wish them nothing but the best. I hope they do well. I want them to succeed. The only point of bringing up the money aspect was that it serves to prove the power and influence Zionists have to control public debate. They use the power of their money to manipulate even good people. It seems clear to me that this is exactly what has happened at NWV.
But I refuse to allow my columns to be censored, so I withdrew my columns from NWV. And after all of those years writing for NWV, I had to let readers know WHY my columns would no longer appear on that site. I knew NWV would not tell readers the real reason. If people now want to believe that I have started lying, so be it.
I find this interesting: among the numerous websites that carry my column is RenewAmerica.com. This is Dr. Alan Keyes’ website. Dr. Keyes has been carrying my columns almost as long as NWV did--since 2005 (12 years). In 2008, Dr. Keyes and I were political opponents. We competed against each other in the presidential primary of the Constitution Party. I won that contest and went on to be the presidential nominee of the Party that year.
The key issue that distinguished the candidacies of Dr. Keyes and mine was foreign policy. I am a strong non-interventionist in the similitude of Ron Paul. And I suspect that Dr. Keyes and I differ on our positions regarding the State of Israel as well, since most of our wars are fought on behalf of Israel. Dr. Keyes has several pro-Zionist writers on his website. Nevertheless, Dr. Keyes has never once put a DISCLAIMER above my column or tried to censor me in any way. What should that tell you? It tells me that the reason Alan Keyes acts in such a gentlemanly and intellectually honest manner is because he doesn’t have people like you, Kelleigh, influencing him, and, therefore, he is open to honest debate from sincere people. And I’m confident that Dr. Keyes is doing quite well financially. That’s a lesson NWV needs to learn.
Here are my columns on RenewAmerica.com:

It is also more than interesting that the column you published on NWV repeatedly calling me a liar spends the bulk of the article bashing me for my theological position opposing Zionism--a theological position held by millions of Christians throughout the world, by the way. Writers for NWV commonly bash Islam with NO repercussions. But obviously NO ONE is allowed to tell the truth about Zionism or the faux State of Israel without being censored and then called a liar and every dirty name one can think of. But the Scripture is clear: “And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist.” (I John 4:3) By definition, that includes Judaism. So, why does NWV condemn the antichrist spirit of Islam but condone the antichrist spirit of Judaism?
As for Kelleigh Nelson, who is she? What “Christian” and “conservative” would tout being a high school classmate of Hillary Rodham as you do in the brief bio under your columns? Your bio says you have been “researching the Christian right and their connections to the left, the new age, and cults since 1975.” Hmm. Does this mean you have a penchant for destroying the “Christian right”? Who else have you researched? Have you done any research into the Zionist connections to the occult, atheism, Talmudism, Kabbalism, the New World Order, and the attempted destruction of Christianity worldwide?
Kelleigh, I know what it feels like to be lied about. I know the pain it causes one’s family and friends. People have told the most vile and vicious lies imaginable about me. And they still do. I promise you I would NEVER intentionally lie about ANYONE. And I haven’t lied about Paul. Remember, Paul was using the loss of a monthly donation to explain why he was going to censor my columns that would be critical of Israel. From his perspective, it makes perfect sense. What other reason would he have to start censoring them?
Kelleigh, I realize you view Zionists favorably, but the truth is, Zionists control the New York media, most of Hollywood and the entertainment industries, and most U.S. congressmen and senators (and maybe President Trump). They destroy (at least try to) the careers and reputations of ANYONE who is seen as disloyal to Israel. If you don’t believe that, just talk to Mel Gibson and hundreds more. Are you now trying to do the same thing to me?
So tell me, Kelleigh, what’s the difference between NWV and the New York media? If writers are not free to intelligently, rationally, logically, and factually report the truth about Israel and if Christian writers are not allowed to present the scriptural case against Zionism and the faux State of Israel, how is NWV anything except another Zionist-controlled website? Are you and NWV afraid of an intelligent, historical, and Biblical debate on Zionism? It appears so.
NWV allowed a Zionist rabbi to attack my position on Israel, but refused to print Christian scholars who attempted to come to my defense. So, it is obvious that the censorship at NWV runs very deep. I know for a fact that there are several of the current writers at NWV who share my theological position on Israel. I know that the way Paul has censored me bothers them deeply. If all of them start writing columns that honestly reflect their heart convictions on this subject, Paul will need to start censoring a bunch of his writers.
Then, in your attempt at sounding pious and spiritual at the end of your attack, you refer to Jesus, “the Jewish Messiah, and King of the Jews.” Surely, it is not lost on you that the Jews rejected their Messiah. Surely, it is not lost on you that they crucified their Messiah and persecuted His disciples for the entire duration of the New Testament record. Surely, it is not lost on you that Lenin and Stalin were Zionists and that the Bolshevik Revolution was created and carried out mostly by Zionists. Surely, it is not lost on you that the so-called Jews in Palestine today could not trace their lineage to the Biblical Hebrews if their lives depended on it. And in fact, the vast majority of them share NO blood relationship with Biblical Hebrews--and even if they did, the Scripture clearly states, “Flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God.” (I Corinthians 15:50) Surely, it is not lost on you that many of the people who are the most aggressive at expunging America’s Christian heritage are Zionists.
But what does seem to be lost on you is that:
“For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel.” (Romans 9:6)
“They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.” (Romans 9:8)
“As he saith also in Osee, I will call them my people, which were not my people; and her beloved, which was not beloved.” (Romans 9:25)
“What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.” (Romans 9:30, 31)
“For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.” (Romans 10:12)
“What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded.” (Romans 11:7)
“What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?” (Romans 3:1)
“That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” (Galatians 3:14)
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:28, 29)
“For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.” (Galatians 4:25, 26)
“For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.” (Romans 2:28, 29)
“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.” (Galatians 3:16)
“And I [Jesus] know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” (Revelation 2:9)
“Behold, I [Jesus] will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie.” (Revelation 3:9)
Kelleigh, I have produced a two-DVD, eight-message series on “The Church And Israel.” I go into great depth to show the New Testament truth on this subject. Have you watched these messages? Have you read Michael Hoffman’s scholarly masterpiece “Judaism’s Strange God’s”? I’m sure you have no intention of reading or watching anything that might challenge your biased point of view.
But should you reconsider, you can find my “Church And Israel” series here:
The Church And Israel Combo
Please remember, Kelleigh, I once believed as you do about Israel (but never to the extreme that you do). But I have always been a truth seeker, and when God reveals truth to me, I follow it, even if it means I must repudiate falsehoods that I once believed were true. And after much prayer and thoughtful, painstaking study of the scriptures, God revealed to me that the modern State of Israel is a devilish counterfeit and has absolutely NOTHING to do with Biblical or prophetic Israel. And if fidelity to this truth costs me $1000 a month--or my entire livelihood for that matter--I still will NOT pander my speaking and writing to anyone (not even to disgruntled, self-absorbed, prideful people in a church pew--and FYI, Kelleigh, Liberty Fellowship has NEVER been stronger and sweeter than it is RIGHT NOW; just thought you’d like to know that). When the day comes that God would choose to no longer sustain my work, I will gladly leave it, because it is not my work at all; it is His.
But it does appear to me that "News With Views" should change its name to "News With Zionist-Approved Views."
And unless you force me to respond further, I have nothing more to say about it. Countless other websites and publications continue to carry my columns; and I will continue to speak the truth as I see it. And should any of them try to censor me, I will withdraw my columns from them as well. I have many thousands of faithful readers independent of any third-party website or publication.
Believe it or not, Kelleigh, there are still millions of people who haven’t sold their birthright of freedom for a mess of pottage--or for a $1000 per month donation. And millions more see the faux State of Israel for what it is. And thousands more are awakening to this truth all of the time. I guess that’s what has you worried. But censoring me will not stop this awakening, Kelleigh. It is an awakening of the Spirit. Who knows? If you made an objective study of the scriptures, the Holy Spirit might illuminate your heart and mind to the truth as well.
And, of course, I do concur with you that we should pray for each other. On that, we can definitely agree. Please give Paul my best regards, and tell him I appreciate the many years that we were able to work together.
