The Elder Sibling Is Watching You

by Al Benson Jr.

Around thirty years ago, a man who followed the political scene in this country told me that the Central Intelligence Agency owned or controlled the National Enquirer newspaper. Somehow, the thought didn’t surprise me. Now I can’t say if he was accurate  or not. At that time I had no way of checking that out. However, other things he told me did pan out  as he said. So let’s just leave it at that.

Recently, I watched a video of a speech by Jerome Corsi. Many of you probably know who Mr. Corsi is. He used to work for World Net Daily and he has written several books over the years. At present, he is a correspondent for http://www.infowars.com and he has a new book out called Killing the Deep State–the Fight to Save President Trump. Check it  out. Mr. Corsi is a good journalist and researcher.

Anyway, in this video I watched, Mr. Corsi mentioned Facebook, Twitter, Google, and one other entity (I’m not sure if it was Amazon or not) and he said that these had all been, in their origins, creatures of the CIA.  I think his speech was on You Tube, so if it hasn’t been removed by now you can probably find it with a little “huntin’ and peckin.” I usually agree with most of what  Mr. Corsi says because he is such a good researcher, with lots of good  sources.

I wouldn’t have thought all that much about his speech except, that on the same day I heard it, I chanced  to read an  article by Luis P. Almeida that had originally been on http://www.LewRockwell.com and had been picked up by https://flyoverpress.wordpress.com  I don’t know much about  Mr. Almeida, but parts of his article caught my attention after having listened to Mr. Corsi’s speech.

Mr. Almeida wrote: “…but I was aware of the privacy issue since Sun Microsystem’s Scott McNealy warned us about it way back in 1999. I have been aware for years that Facebook was  funded by the CIA’s venture capital arm called In-Q-Tel and that the NSA had tapped into our telecommunications network and was sucking up all voice and date traffic for analysis. In the 80s Brzezinski stated in his book, that soon the government would have a database containing everything there is to know about each and every one of us. I did not need a congressional hearing to make me aware that the day he spoke of had long arrived.” And incidentally,  the Brzezinski he is referring to, a longtime member of the Trilateral Commission, who passed away recently, was the father of Mika Brzezinski who is a “news” anchor for CNN.

So what Mr Almeida is telling  us is that Facebook is basically in the business of gathering any and  all info they can on all of us. When confronted with this their usual reply is that this is strictly for “commercial” purposes–advertising, etc. That’s a pile of cow chips, to use a polite term. These people are gathering intelligence on all Americans of all ages that use social media. They want to make sure they have the goods on any and all Americans who might, someday, become “persons of interest” to the feds. Whether this is warranted or not makes not an iota of  difference. They do it because they can!

And if you should be naive enough to ask about your First, Fourth, and Sixth Amendment rights I would have to reply–“Surely you jest!”

You Have To Wonder—

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Looking at what is and has been going on in the Middle East for a long time, you have to wonder if getting rid of Christianity there is a main part of the agenda, both over there and in this country.

In Iraq, Saddam Hussein was no Sunday school teacher. He was a brutal dictator, who had been placed in power by the United States. They used to say of him, “Hussein was a thug, but he was our thug.” One thing you had to say about him, though, was that for all  his faults, and they were numerous, he left the Christians in Iraq alone. They were not persecuted under his regime. You  cannot say the same for his Muslim successors.

Now we have this mess going on in Syria and Assad is supposed to be the reincarnation of Hitler, Attilla the  Hun and the  Mongol hoards all rolled into one. We have  certain people that are screaming for “regime change” in Syria. Quite frankly, these chemical attacks that have gone on there look like classic false flag events. The same pattern seems to emerge in all of them and it’s like someone carries these out, about a year or so apart from one another and this brings on yet another shout for “regime change.” Sort of like–well we tried this last year and it  didn’t take, so let’s wait awhile and try it again this year. Surely in the lapse of time between the last try and this one, people will have forgotten that we used this scenario before and we can do it the same  way again and  all the right  people will howl again this year for “regime change.” Sound familiar?

And again in Syria, as in Iraq, Assad doesn’t bother the Christians. As bad as he is, do you think what replaces him  with a change of regimes will leave the Christian alone? If Assad is toppled you will almost certainly see him replaced with some sort of radical Islamic group which has as  part of its agenda some sort of Sharia Law and the destruction of Christianity. That’s what all these  Islamic groups in the Middle East want, no matter what they say. If the truth were known, that’s what Obama wanted when he was in office. Anyone ever notice how  many Muslims were part of his administration? If you think he was about to give Christians a fair shake then you are dreaming!

Make no mistake, our Deep State in this country wants Assad gone in Syria and in all those Middle Eastern countries  they want regimes that will be compliant to their concept of a One World Government. Our Deep State here wants a Middle East made in its own image just as much as they want a United States molded in their own image. These people, with the help of the  United Nations, want to construct a modern Tower of Babel and reach up to Heaven and secure a place there for themselves all on their own. No “salvation only through Jesus Christ” for these people! They’ll make it on their own–so they  think! Too late they will realize their gross error–but by then they will have destroyed lives and countries–all the more for them to answer for!

Truly hath God said “All who hate me love death.”

Two Sets Of Rules

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

It should be abundantly clear to most of us who inhabit this  sinful world that, when it comes to real justice, mostly, there is “just us” and no one else to  help. I have often watched Sean Hannity on Fox News refer to what we have in this country as a “two-tiered system of justice.” Mr. Hannity is right on target. That is exactly what we have–one set of rules for us ordinary peons and entirely another set for those who are the Elite–the Deep State, the Establishment, or whatever you choose to call them.

What we would be thrown in the  slammer for they automatically get a “get out of jail card” for. They are not held to the same standards as we are. It’s almost like “We, because of our ‘eliteness’ deserve to be treated better than you great unwashed rabble, because, after all, we are special and the rest of you are so common.” It’s like they are the “enlightened” ones while we are the “deplorables”–in the words of one of their most well-known (and devious).

Nothing could display this more than the by-now  infamous Mueller “Witch Hunt” for all those “Russian collusionists.” Well, at least for all those Russian collusionists that are associated with  Mr. Trump. Of course they may not really be collusionists, but that makes no difference whatever. If they have, in any way, associated with Mr. Trump in the last thirty years, they are automatically suspect of something, and if Herr Mueller cannot find a ham sandwich to indict, then he will settle for one of them.

You have to give him credit. In over a year he has turned up nothing, but not to worry–he will doggedly continue on until something turns up, no matter how inconclusive or worthless.

However, for those willing to see, something has turned up–Russian collusion with Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and much of the Democratic Party. The Uranium One deal with Putin is one thing that readily comes to mind and it’s pretty clear what went on with all that. Has Herr Mueller seen all that? He should, as he and other friends in the FBI were involved in it. But, again, not to worry, Mueller is making sure what he and his friends and the Clintons have all been complicit it gets no notice whatever. In fact, you could honestly say that Herr Mueller is one of the biggest slight-of-hand artists there is.

His part of this agenda is to make sure any of Trump’s friends who might have had Russian dressing on their salad thirty years ago gets an automatic subpoena as a “Russian collusionist” while at the same time, studiously ignoring all that he, Hillary, and their friends have done to help Russia get a major chunk of our uranium. To say that lots of dinero changed hands in their efforts would be to belabor the obvious.

So, while Trump or some of his friends may go to jail for, literally nothing worth mentioning, Mueller, Hillary, and Company will literally walk free.
Don’t hold your breath in this life waiting to see justice done.

I realize, in the final judgment no one gets away with anything and the Lord will set it all to rights and it will be like the rich man and Lazarus in the Bible. But we don’t know just how far off that will be. I imagine there are lots and lots of us who have watched as the Clintons and their cronies have, literally, gotten away with murder for decades and some of us would, just once in our lifetimes, like to see the grossly guilty get whats coming to them!

Update:  This is a little off subject, but important nonetheless. Last week Trump said: “We’ll be coming out of Syria, like very soon. Let the other people take care of it now. Very soon, very soon, we’re coming out…We’re going to get back to our country…”

You have to wonder why he did what he did  in Syria last evening in the face of such a statement. It’s the exact opposite of what he promised. So what happened? Did the Deep State finally come up with a way to co-opt him, to get  control of  him so he’d be forced to do what they all have been clamoring for??? Something really rotten is going on and it does not bode well for America or normal Americans. When Trump goes back on what he said and starts doing the bidding of the Deep State you know something is has really gone wrong. Is he, in some way, being blackmailed, or what? Keep an eye on things because I have the feeling the country is about to get shafted–big time!

4/9/65

Well, today is the 153rd anniversary of Robert E. Lee’s surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House in Virginia.

This event, so we are told, ended the “Civil War.” As far as the professional “historians” and their appendages in the Fake News Media are concerned, that was it, the end. The South fought to preserve her right to keep slaves and lost–end of story. Unfortunately for them, it isn’t.

Robert E. Lee’s surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia did not end the War. There were still two armies in the field, Joe Johnston’s army in North Carolina, and Kirby Smith’s army of the Trans-Mississippi in Louisiana. Though these would eventually surrender, they hadn’t yet, and the lawful government of the Confederate States of America would never surrender. To this day they have never surrendered. The surrender of Lee’s army was interpreted as being the surrender of the Confederate States of America. It wasn’t!

Jeff Davis had no intention of surrendering the Confederate government. He put it all, records, and cabinet members, on the train to Danville, Virginia and sought to operate the Confederate government as the train moved South. Davis and many in the government were finally caught–and the Yankee/Marxists even lied about the events surrounding that. Be that as it may, the Confederate government never officially surrendered. Clifford Dowdey wrote about that in his book The History of the Confederacy–1832-1865, pages 411, 414.

The Yankee/Marxists, due to having more men, money, and material, overwhelmed us on the battle field–but they never forced a surrender out of us in the end!

So I guess, to satisfy the historians (hysterians) it has been promulgated abroad that the “Civil War” ended at Appomattox on April 9th. That way no one will ever be tempted to ask to see the documents showing the surrender of the Confederate States, with official signatures.

Of course, most astute followers of our history realize that the War really solved nothing and that even though the shooting part of the War has abated for now, the cultural phase of the War has been cranking up since the advent of “reconstruction” and has now reached almost fever pitch, as the Yankee/Marxists now feel they have us down for the count along with most of our monuments and flags. It will be up to us, with God’s help and our grit, as to how far down they have us, but I have the sneaky feeling it ain’t as far down and they think it should be or would like it to be. So it will be up to us, and those we educate for the future, as to how far down we are. Kind of like the picture of the heron trying to swallow the frog–except the frog has got a grip on his throat so he can’t swallow anything and the caption at the top of the picture says “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” That’s where we are right now–so happy Appomattox Day!

Thieves Of History Try But They Can’t Destroy It All

by Al Benson Jr.

Well, I just read this week about how some of the “Thieves of History” somewhere out on the Left Coast, now want a statue of President William McKinley to be taken down. I don’t recall exactly what their problem with McKinley was, but whatever it was, they probably did not know that he had been a Brevet Major in the Union Army during the War of Northern Aggression. The thought occurred to me that the Yankee/Marxist revolution in this country is now starting to “eat its own”–something that has inevitably happened in all Leftist revolutions, from the French Revolution to the Russian Revolution and beyond. Stalin’s purges in modern times are a great example. So much for the “peace, love and tranquility” promised us by the political and theological Left. They can’t even get along with their own.

I wonder if any in Yankeeland will mourn the departure of President McKinley should his statue be removed? Will any up there protest this? Will some of them look South and expect us to help them preserve McKinley, or Lincoln or whoever, in the name of “patriotism?” If so, we can always ask them where they were when Lee, Jackson, Jeff Davis, and Beauregard were being taken down here in the South.

In fact, today, you might be accurate if you observed that groups like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and a host of others today are little more than the modern equivalent of the Yankee/Marxist “reconstruction”troops stationed in the South after the shooting part (not the cultural part) of the War was over. I have often stated that “reconstruction is ongoing today” and their willing presence as they have sought to tear down and destroy our Southern monuments only bears this out. They are part and parcel of the current phase of “reconstruction.” And while they might not officially be “military troops” there are those in control in the Deep State that finance their depredations.

The first phase of “reconstruction” was the occupation by Yankee troops after the War, but they realized they were not about to change the minds of those they had lately fought against, so at that point, along came the Yankee school teachers and their new and revised curriculums, designed to make Southern kids feel guilty about who they and their ancestors really were. That phase is continuing even unto this day, with the public school educrats trying to construct even larger “stools of everlasting repentance” so more and more Southern kids can sit on them and reflect on the “evils” of secession and independence.

But we are finally, thank the Lord, beginning to see a bit of a backlash. New Confederate monuments, although smaller in scale, are beginning to go up–on private property, and big Confederate flags are going up in prominent places near major highways in the South–also on private property. No more putting our monuments and memorials up on Deep State turf! That’s a recipe for disaster!

And our history and heritage are being celebrated, even if the Fake News Media purposely forgets to mention it.

This is April, Confederate History Month! I’ve just read articles about a town in Georgia where the town council recognized Confederate History Month and I read about a county up in Kentucky that has done the same thing. Also received the following just yesterday–With a unanimous vote, the Union Parish Police Jury has just proclaimed April as Confederate History Month! God Save the South! This last one is in north Louisiana. And the SCV folks in Louisiana, in March, sponsored several caravan flag rallies where vehicles with Confederate flags drove back and forth across the state on major highways. You’d be surprised how many folks out on the road see that sort of thing on a Saturday afternoon. And here in Louisiana the response to that kind of thing by the pubic has been overwhelmingly positive. And in north Louisiana other events will follow later this month.

I have no doubt whatever that our modern Yankee/Marxist “reconstructionists” will continue to press their assault on our culture, history and heritage all across the South, but at least they are beginning to realize that they won’t have it all their own way and that they are not going to win some of the skirmishes they get into with us. And as this struggle continues, more Southern folks wake up and realize what is going on.

As for learning what you can do to help, get a copy of Ron Kennedy’s recent book Dixie Rising–Rules for Rebels (Shotwell Publishing, Columbia, South Carolina). And don’t forget to celebrate Confederate History Month this month. Get a Confederate flag of some kind and run it up your flagpole. Give your politically correct neighbors something to choke on!

Here We Come And Here’s What We Want!

by Al Benson Jr.

There was a time when immigrants came to this country from other places to make a better life for themselves and they were willing to work hard to do that. And mostly they did it. They found jobs and made a place for themselves and their families and in so doing made themselves part of this country. My grandfather was one of them. He went to work in a factory at nine years of age. His family didn’t come here and demand favors and freebies. In those days there was none of that foolishness. Immigrants came here, mostly legally, willing to work and make a better life for their families.

Today all that has changed!

Presently you have “caravans” of immigrants from Central America working their way up through Mexico and they plan to arrive on our southern border with a list of demands they expect our president to comply with forthwith so they can be comfortable here. They expect these demands to be met, or at least they say they do. They feel they are entitled to what they demand.

When Comrade Obama occupied the White (Red) House this was the kind of situation that would cause him to draw a line in the sand, and having drawn it, he would gladly invite all the illegals to cross it and he would seek to bestow upon them all the goodies he wouldn’t dream of giving to native-born American citizens because, after all, most of us were not socialist like him, and so we didn’t deserve anything. All we deserved was the privilege of footing the bill to coddle all his illegal buddies so they could live in the lap of luxury while they labored to change our culture into the one they had just “escaped” from.

However, this year’s “caravan” will be dealing with Donald Trump rather than “Madame President” which, hopefully, will be a whole different animal. If Mr. Trump ends up caving in to these freebie-hunters lots of us ain’t gonna be real happy. Right now he is talking about pulling US troops out of Syria and putting them down on our southern border–a move I will applaud if he does it.

As the “caravan” works its way to the borders of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Commiefornia they are letting us know what they expect from us. According to an article on https://canadafreepress.com one of the demands of the caravan comrades is that “They open the borders to us because we are as much citizens as the people of the countries where we are and/or travel.” In other words, these people are as much the citizens of this country as we are? That statement won’t even qualify as bovine fertilizer! The idea that some Leftist group (because that is who ultimately finances these boondoggles) can just trot up to our border and demand citizenship is way beyond laughable. It is an absurdity!!! Oh, I realize this sort of arrogant demand warms the hearts of all dedicated Leftists in this country who loathe ordinary hardworking Americans and love illegal immigrants that they can shower our largesse on.  Just think of the voting block they can turn these people into (whether they vote legally or not makes no diference) to disenfranchise normal Americans. Just think of how they will change our culture, because that culture change is a major part of their agenda. Ask Comrade Obama who, come to think of it, we haven’t seen much of lately, though his minions are assuredly active. Makes you wonder where he’s hiding out–and why?

But the “caravan crowd” has yet another point to make. They say “Our dream is to build solidarity bridges and turndown border walls imposed by greed.” No doubt they are seeking to fulfill Hillary’s dream of open borders and are happily doing their bit toward that Leftist end. The Free Press noted that this is a “..clear PR stunt orchestrated by leftist advocates.”

Who are these people to “demand” anything of us? If some of them manage, by hook or by crook to sneak into this country they will be nothing more than illegal immigrants and the only thing they will be entitled to is a free ride back to the Mexican border. Regardless of what they say and regardless of what some of our cowardly politicians spout they don’t have citizens rights here and they shouldn’t be entitled to any “free stuff” just because they have the gall to demand it.

I have heard that the governor of Texas plans to put the Texas National Guard along the Texas border with Mexico. Good for him! Let’s hope he has enough of them to do the job until Mr. Trump gets those troops back from Syria! It’s high time we quit handing over American goodies to everybody in the world that thinks they deserve them, via some “redistribution of the wealth” scam authored in Washington.

I’m Getting Tired of Foul-Mouthed Child Media Activists

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am getting sick and tired of listening to potty-mouthed child “activists” chanting about more gun control or seeing them head up marches that call for repealing the Second Amendment and listening to them lecture older folks about how we don’t know much about “using a f—— Democracy” as though they and only they were somehow born to be the fonts of all human wisdom. If you want my opinion, it is all Hoggwash!

This gifted “activist” (useful idiot would be more like it) berates his elders because they supposedly don’t know how to utilize their form of government, yet he can’t even get the proper form of government correct. I wonder if he knows the difference between a republic and a democracy? Did they ever teach him that in this government school he attended? Bet they didn’t.

There was a time in this country when younger folks respected their elders instead of pretending they were all stupid and calling them profanity-laden names. This present generation, and the one before it, seem to think humanity would not possibly have survived if they hadn’t arrived on the scene to explain to all us elder buffoons about how we should live. Some of these “activist” kids are on a gigantic ego trip and they somehow think the world will never make it unless we all listen to them spout all the talking points they were scripted and coached in by the Leftist agitators who pushed them forward because they could serve the Leftist agenda.

I’ve got news for some of you budding socialists who think you are “changing the world.” Once the Leftists and those who finance them get through using you and getting all the mileage out of you that they can, they will toss you on the ash heap of history like so many wrung-out dishrags and that will be all she wrote for you–and you will wake up some fine morning and ponder over why you ain’t “famous” anymore!

I watched a video on the internet of the indispensable Mr. Hogg berating those who disagree with his infinite wisdom. It seemed that about every seventh word out of his mouth was the “F word.” But then, that seems to be a favorite term with the Left nowadays. When they can’t come up with a cogent argument about anything they just “give you the finger” and that ends the debate! Sort of like calling you a “racist.” That’s supposed to end the debate, only it doesn’t anymore and so in their frustration, they resort to the middle finger because, if the truth were realized, they don’t have anything else!!!

In my browsing recently I came across an article by a John Zigler, the headline for which was The Media Should Not Let David Hogg Be Both a Child-Victim And an Adult Activist. That’s an interesting headline, and Mr. Zigler has a point. Mr. Hogg should not be able to be both–either he is one or the other. But the way it is now, he is playing both ends against the middle–literally! He is practicing that old Marxist game of “pressure from above and pressure from below” that I have written about before–a game to make sure that the middle class, ordinary folks, are caught in the middle between those above them and those below them–who are actually working together to squeeze them out!

So I will just say this to Mr. Hogg in closing–You are not “changing the world” as much as you like to think you are. You are being used to change it by someone else who has a totally different worldview than most of us in this country have or want and they are using you to force their vision of Amerika on the rest of us. You may not like that, buddy, but that’s how it really is. And if you really like the words your handlers are putting in your mouth to spew at the rest of us, then you are part of the problem, not the solution!
