“GET US OUT” of The Public School System

By Al Benson Jr.

Years ago the John Birch Society had a project called “Get Us Out of the United Nations.” It was an excellent project and I supported it. They may still have it and if so I would still support it. Whether they realized it or not, it was based on the biblical principle of separation from evil—something Christians should support and work toward.

So I borrowed part of their project’s title and applied it to the public school system—something else that should be separated from.

Recently Pastor Steve Wilkins of the Auburn Ave. Presbyterian Church in Monroe, Louisiana gave a series of sermons on parenting and in one of them he listed bad parental assumptions. One of those bad assumptions was that Christian education is a luxury instead of a necessity. Pastor Wilkins noted, quite accurately, that: “All education is religious. The only issue is, which religion is your child being taught? Public education is education in polytheism and statism. It is extreme and intolerant in its religious convictions. It’s goal is to indoctrinate, not educate.” Anyone who has taken the trouble to read the history of the public school system in this country with an open mind must surely realize the truth of that statement. Unfortunately, most Christians are bad with history. They don’t have or want to take the time to check anything out and so they grasp at what the “experts” tell them as gospel. To even ask where the “experts” are coming from (usually the left) is something that never occurs to them.

I’ve run across Christian parents that fit exactly what Pastor Wilkins is talking about. To them Christian education is a luxury they can’t afford. Were they to engage themselves in that needful endeavor they might have to part with the family’s third car, or learn to sacrifice by doing without that 65” television screen in the living room. And that’s just too much to ask, so they never even consider it. After all the local public school has a Christian teacher or two and a great music program. What else do you need? Right? Wrong!

Pastor Wilkins quoted Paul Blanchard, who wrote an article for The Humanist  way back in the prehistorical days of 1976 in which he said: “Our schools may not teach Johnny to read properly, but the fact that Johnny is in school until he is 16 tends to lead toward the elimination of religious superstition…” He was talking about the elimination of Christianity, folks—not other religions. They are all accepted to a large degree in public schools. It is only Christianity that is forbidden. Six year olds can get arrested if they write “Jesus” on the covers of their textbooks. When was the last time you heard of a Muslim student getting arrested for writing “Allah” on the front of his book? That would “offend” the Muslim community and possibly cause riots, so it doesn’t happen. Christians don’t tend to fight back so they are fair game—and it’s their faith the schools are really against—and have been from the beginning. The founders of public education in this country, Unitarians and socialists, freely admitted as much well over a century ago.

In the past few days I read an article on http://freedomoutpost.com  entitled: “Floridians Outraged Over Islamic Bias And Indoctrination In School Textbooks.” The article mentioned a textbook published by Prentice Hall entitled World History. The article, quoting Florida Today, noted: “Two Brevard School Board members are reviewing a world history textbook used in ninth grade Advance Placement classes amid concerns that it is biased in favor is Islam—at the expense of Christianity and Judaism. House Representative Ritch Workman and individuals from two citizens groups spoke against the textbook, Prentice Hall, World History at the Brevard School Board meeting Tuesday, citing examples of phrases and passages they believe show bias. ‘Our children deserve facts and accuracy, not history being revised for our own failure or desire not to offend one culture or another’ said Workman, a Republican from Melbourne…Workman also expressed concern about how historic events are portrayed and what phrases are used. For example, he said the textbook reads Jesus proclaims himself to be the Messiah but declares Muhammed becomes a prophet.”

Workman is right in saying that kids deserve accurate history, but that is something they have not had in this country since “reconstruction” started. The problem is lots worse and lots older than he thinks it is. I wonder if he ever heard of the textbook protest in Kanawha County, West Virginia in the 1970s. I’d be willing to bet he has no clue. He and lots of other folks should read Karl Priest’s book Protester Voices–the 1974 Textbook Tea Party. It’s a real eye-opener as to what has gone on in public schools for decades in this country.

Christians need to begin to realize that Christian education, whether in a sound Christian school or at home, is not a luxury it is a necessity. A sound Christian worldview teaches Christian young people to resist the culture around them and to work toward a Christian alternative—and there is one. Public schools teach them to abandon their faith as “religious superstition.” Oh, it’s alright to embrace other religions—just not Christianity and the kids have to be taught to put that John 14:6 stuff behind them and to learn to march toward that “brave new world” being prepared for us all by the United Nations, the Council on Foreign Relations, and all those other God-hating groups and individuals. Ultimately, the question is one of which theology you will follow and which theology you will have your kids follow.


And You Thought “Reconstruction” Was Over

By Al Benson Jr.

You thought “reconstruction” was all over better than a hundred years ago. You public school “history” book told you it ended in 1877 when the last of the Yankee troops packed it in and went home. Guess what? Your “history” book lied. “Reconstruction” never really ended. The first phase of it ended in 1877 and the feds gave you all a few years to think that your states in the South really belonged to you again.

However, that was not the case. It was never to be the case again. “Reconstruction was to be ongoing. They just didn’t bother to tell you that. The Russian revolutionary Bakunin, in the 1860s, was a radical supporter of “reconstruction” in this country and he had some comments about it we would do well to consider. Walter Kennedy and I, in our book Lincoln’s Marxists, noted a few of his comments on page 159. Bakunin stated that in order for “popular self-government” to become a reality “another revolution…far more profound” had to take place. Bakunin’s comments are thought-provoking. They show that he considered the War of Northern Aggression to be a revolution. But then, in referring to “another revolution” was he speaking of the “reconstruction” introduced with the adoption of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments, the “civil rights” movement, and the emergence of worldwide communism. This would seem to be the case, and if so, then we in this country, in the 1860s, really experienced two revolutions, and the second one is ongoing today.

Look at the “civil rights voting act” of 1965, which only applied to the Southern states. That was “reconstruction” folks—ongoing in the 1960s, along with busing kids all over the place to public schools, which schools were and are also a major part of “reconstruction.” So you see, it never really stopped.

The Supreme Court, those champions of the “constitutionality” of Obamacare, recently issued a ruling, (a good one for a change) that said that the formula which had been used to determine which states and locations were to be subjected to “extra federal scrutiny” was now outdated, obsolete. According to http://www.newsmax.com  “The ruling freed Texas and certain other jurisdictions from having to submit their voting laws to the Justice Department before they could take effect. The covered jurisdictions were mostly in the South, where there was a history of denying minorities the right to vote. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion that the South had changed dramatically, however.” Not according to “Fast and Furious” Holder, though. It hasn’t changed enough to suit him. It isn’t being totally controlled by minorities yet and you almost get the idea that this ticks Holder off. The fact that there was just as much of a problem in some areas of the North is not worth addressing so we’ll just ignore that and concentrate on that “evil” South.

Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah even commented on this. He observed: “The Civil War’s been over for a long time. We’ve come a long way on civil rights. The states are doing a terrific job in most respects. The ones that used to be under the Voting Rights Act provisions—some of the worst states are blue states (liberal states) where they treat minorities like dirt and don’t take care of them, don’t do what’s right by them—and frankly, a lot of this liberal stuff comes out of those states.”

So Holder is planning to ask a federal court to “reinstate the Justice Department’s authority over voting laws in Texas…” And I imagine if he manages through some sort of political maneuvering to accomplish that, do you think he will not do the same in the rest of the Southern states? Don’t be naïve. The Supreme Court took away a little of Holder’s power and authority and he wants it back! He’s like a big kid who pouts and fusses when he doesn’t get his way. At the risk of sounding disrespectful, I hope the Supreme Court tells him to go fish. At that point he may try to have the Chief Justice arrested–after all, Lincoln tried that once.

Senator Hatch said “The court has already ruled—and he’s trying to reinstitute the Voting Rights Act in Texas. If I were a Texan I would be so doggone livid that I don’t think I’d ever get over it. That’s not the thing to do and it just shows how this administration ignores the law. They act like they’re despots. The president is continually doing things he has no authority to do—and yet they just do it and they get away with it because many in the liberal media just will not hold them to account…”

Of course they are despots. Senator Hatch should realize that by this time and they are not going to change. They do whatever they want because they can and the political prostitutes we call the “news” media give them a pass. And anyone who points out their evil designs is a “low level terrorist” or a “conspiracy theorist.” We have gotten to the point in this country where telling the truth constitutes a conspiracy if that truth exposes government wrongdoing.

And you’re going to tell me that “reconstruction” is over? The feds are playing the same games now they played in the 1860s and getting by with them now just like they did then. So how has “reconstruction” ended?

Well, it has “ended” because the “history” books don’t call it “reconstruction” anymore. Now it’s referred to as “cultural diversity” or “cultural empowerment” or some other such lofty euphemism. Folks in the South who are knowledgeable call it “cultural Marxism” or “cultural genocide” because that’s what “reconstruction” really is—and Mr. Holder and his bosses want to make sure it continues until the dominant culture is either destroyed or neutralized.

Lawmakers Don’t Want You to be Able to Defend Yourself

By Al Benson Jr.

In the wake of the results of the Zimmerman trial it was to be expected that the political left would seek, in some way, to compensate for the not guilty verdict by seeking to find another way to weaken the national fabric further.

They seem, possibly with the guidance and help of “Fast and Furious” Holder to have come upon a way that will help them accomplish this part of their agenda. Holder has questioned the “stand your ground” law in Florida that allows ordinary people to resist thuggery if they are attacked. His handlers will likely have him try to get it declared “racist” or some such thing so he can, in the name of protecting minorities, get it made null and void across the country.

According to an article on http://www.lewrockwell.com for July 18th, author Gary North said: “Attorney General Eric Holder stood his ground at a meeting of the NAACP. He said that ‘stand your ground’ laws are bad. He thinks black people, like all other people, should not carry a gun. They should not stand their ground when threatened.” In other words, tuck tail and run!

“Fast and Furious” Holder went on to say “…it’s time to question laws that needlessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods.” After all, you wouldn’t want too many people, of whatever color, to get the idea that they have a right to defend their families, their lives and their property. We are all supposed to naively believe that it’s up to “the government” to do all that.

North noted that: “The main victims of violence from gangs and thugs in the United States are residents of the inner cities. Here, police protection is minimal. Here, people either stand their ground or get run over by thugs.” Holder’s solution—let the thugs run over you—you really don’t want to defend yourself. It might cause some “dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods.” Sure it might. Some of the gangbangers might get shot or run off. Is that what Holder calls “dangerous conflict?” You have to wonder whose side he’s on—well, not really. If he can’t be bothered to prosecute the Black Panthers in Philadelphia for intimidating voters you already know whose side he’s on—and it ain’t yours!

Now lawmakers in some states, no doubt taking their cue from Mr. “Fast and Furious” are putting out feelers to see if they can start to get rid of or at least water down “stand your ground” laws in their various states. Look for a major push in this area. Lawmakers in Alabama, supposedly concerned over the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida are starting to tinker with the “stand your ground” law in that state. I can’t help but wonder if all this great concern would be there if Trayvon Martin had been white and his killer black. Somehow, in that scenario, I feel the silence on the issue would be deafening.

Senator Hank Sanders from Selma feels that the law should be completely repealed. Knowing Sanders’ far-left political persuasion that should come as no surprise. He and his family were among the foremost opponents of the Confederate monument honoring Nathan Bedford Forrest on Confederate Circle in Selma.

Leftist legislators admit they will have a hard time getting the “stand your ground” law changed or repealed at this point, but they will try anyway—and keep on trying until, by sheer tenacity and gall, they manage to find a state legislature somewhere that doesn’t have the courage to stand up to their political assault. This is a favorite tactic of the left. They take an unpopular issue and continue to push the envelope until they find someone that will cave in to their machinations and then it’s “Katie bar the door.”

Professional black race-baiters have played the race card with the Zimmerman-Martin situation, but they have not fooled all the black people.
A black preacher, Rev. Ken Hutcherson, was quoted on http://www.theblaze.com as stating: “I believe Dr. James Manning hit the nail on the head when he said that black people have a difficult time accepting truth simply because they are black. That’s right, black people are involved and it is impossible for the average black person to believe the truth. They refuse to believe that a black boy could be in the wrong when it comes to a white Hispanic. Blackness is the apex of victimhood and our blackness is above truth, above our Christianity, above our God, above our Holy Spirit, so that means if our blackness is above the Holy Spirit, then it is above Truth. This is so important for everyone to know this so they can understand why this Trayvon and Zimmerman case is where it is today and why blacks refuse to believe what really happened.”

Remember, it was a black preacher that said this, not a white man or an Oriental or a Hispanic—a black man. His testimony was born out by a missionary from South Africa that I talked with several years ago. He made the comment that, for all the talk about “racial equality” the blacks were the most ethnocentric people he had ever encountered. For them race was everything, race was the “way, the truth, and the life” for them. So it all has nothing to do with real equality and all to do with race. The black race-baiters who label everyone who isn’t black as a “racist” are the most racially-conscious people in the world.

Maybe it’s time people began to realize this and to quit back-peddling for these race hucksters in the name of “love and diversity.” Every time they don’t get their way they threaten riots and mayhem and if they do riot they usually end up destroying their own neighborhoods, which they then expect to have rebuilt for them.

Maybe the lesson here is that the rest of the country needs to start saying NO! Stand your ground laws are a good place to start saying no to black hucksters and that may be a big part of the reason “Fast and Furious” Holder would like to do away with them.

New England Marxists in Lincoln’s Court

By Al Benson Jr.

Often I have written articles in which I used the term “Yankee/Marxist” to describe those who made war on the South in 1861 and who have held not only the South, but now the rest of the country, in a repressive version of “reconstruction” that has never really ended and, if anything, has gotten even worse in recent decades.

Those who have not bothered to do the history homework or who have gotten their version of “history” from public school history pabulum will laugh at that statement. That’s okay. Let them laugh. In the end they will end up choking on their laughter. Although they might not use the same terminology, other authors more qualified than I have reached many of the same conclusions.

Professor Thomas DiLorenzo recently wrote an article on http://www.lewrockwell.com  in which he talked about a recent book written by historian and novelist Thomas Fleming called A Disease of the Public Mind: A New Understanding of Why We Fought the Civil War.. This book can be found on Amazon.com and should be checked out.

DiLorenzo made the following statement: “No respectable historian believes the DeepNorth/government school fantasy that enlightened and morally-superior Northerners elected Abe Lincoln so they could go to war and die by the hundreds of thousands solely for the benefit of black strangers in the ‘deep South.” No argument there. Di Lorenzo observed that only 6% of Southern men owned slaves and he noted that this meant, and still means, that the average Confederate soldier “was not fighting to preserve a system that actually harmed him and his family economically; and that the real cause of the war was what Fleming calls a ‘malevolent envy’ of the South by New England Yankees’ who waged a war of economic conquest.” Fleming has observed that (Northern) hatred for Southerners long predated their objections to slavery. Abolitionists were convinced that New England, whose spokesmen had begun the American Revolution, should have been the leaders of the new nation. Instead they had been displaced by Southern ‘slavocrats’ like Thomas Jefferson.” Such a situation would grate on the gentle egos of the New England elite. I know. I grew up in New England and though there were and are some great people there, the prevailing attitude, at least in my adolescent years was “if you want acceptance, you do it MY way.”

DiLorenzo reiterates this: “First, there was the extreme ‘malevolent envy’ of Southerners by the New England ‘Yankee’ political class, who had long believed that they were God’s chosen people and that they should rule America, if not the rest of the world. Second, there were a mere 25 or so very influential New England abolitionists who had abandoned Christianity and even condemned Jesus Christ, while embracing the mentally insane mass murderer John Brown as their ‘savior.’ This is part of the ‘disease in the public mind’ that is the theme of Fleming’s book.”

According to DiLorenzo, John Brown “…had declared himself to be a communist…” in addition to his terrorist attacks in Kansas. I’ve never seen the source Professor DiLorenzo got this from, but knowing he is a writer that does the homework, I don’t doubt it. Also, recently, there was an article in the Bulletin of the John Birch Society  for June, 2013 called “The Purpose of Terrorism.” In this article, its author Arthur R. Thompson referred to John Brown and stated: “Brown was a failure in business and attached himself to the abolitionist cause after being converted to communism—according to his son—sometime in the early 1840s…Northerners who financed his activities became known as the Secret Six. These people understood that Brown was engaging in treason, and they financed him specifically because they knew this.” Awhile back I wrote a series of articles on this group for my newsletter The Copperhead Chronicle. And the fact that Brown had with him in Kansas, two men who had been socialist “forty-eighters” in Europe is dealt with in the book written by Walter Kennedy and myself, Lincoln’s Marxists.

Mr. Thompson noted how the “news” media fawned over John Brown and he said: “Most of these newspapers were edited and/or owned by people engaged in promoting the communist movement, such as the New York Tribune of Horace Greeley and Charles Dana. While the Trib was openly in support of communism, even hiring Karl Marx and other notorious communist leaders as correspondents, other newspapers tried to cloak their endorsement under the banner of reform.” Again, Walter Kennedy and I covered all this in Lincoln’s Marxists.

Anyway, back to Thomas Fleming’s book, in which he notes that John Brown “truly became a ‘god’ to the New England Yankees. ‘Ralph Waldo Emerson expressed awe and near worship of John Brown’ writes Fleming. He lavished praise on John Brown’s religion of violence.’ “
Fleming stated that Yankees can be easily recognized by their “arrogance, hypocrisy, greed, and lack of congeniality (and) for ordering other people around…They are the chosen saints whose mission is to make America and the world, into the perfection of their own image.”

Professor Clyde Wilson has accurately noted that: “Hillary Rodham Clinton is a museum-quality specimen of the Yankee—self-righteous, ruthless, and self-aggrandizing.” Professor Wilson also observed that by 1860 “The North had been Yankeeized, for the most part quietly, by control of churches, schools, and other cultural institutions…” As an aside, should the One World elite in New York decide it, Saint Hitlery may well be the next president of the United States of Amerika, elected or otherwise. In regard to the Yankee attitude of themselves as God’s chosen people, there was a time when many among them, believing the truths of Scripture, were among God’s chosen people. But when New England succumbed to the heresy of Unitarianism in the late 1700s and rejected the truth about Jesus Christ they forfeited their “choseness” in favor of apostasy.

Hopefully, some of this will give you a faint glimmer as to why I refer to these people as “Yankee/Marxists.” I can see no real difference between the two. They both have the same objectives—control of the country and the world and the desire to run everyone’s life for them. They have the mindset that whatever they advocate must be pure and “moral” (as long as it fits their agenda) and if people choose not to go along with their agenda they will use whatever means necessary to make sure they are forced to—legislation, physical force, peer pressure, or whatever.

The Yankee and the Marxist are the same animal with the same agenda—total domination of everyone and everything. It would be nice if more folks in the Southern Movement would wake up and become aware of this. Your enemies are not just Northern folks, many of whom agree with you on many issues. Your enemies are Marxists, and you need to wake up and realize that Communism ain’t dead—it’s just changed coats.

Get Thomas Fleming’s book. Get Professor DiLorenzo’s books about Lincoln and the Republican Party, and get Walter Kennedy’s and my book about the Marxist support for Lincoln and the Union and the Marxist foundations of the Republican Party. You won’t like much of what you read in these, but the truth will set you free, if you are willing to follow it.

Not Guilty? They’ll Get Him Anyway—any way they have to

By Al Benson Jr.

I must confess, I have not followed the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case all that closely. Honestly, I figured they would make “civil rights” propaganda out of it, which the media would dutifully report, ignoring things that needed to be brought up and majoring on the minors as they are wont to do. Guilty was the verdict I expected, no matter how shallow or insignificant the “evidence” was. The rule of law so seldom plays any real part in anything anymore and the Marxist agenda is everything and everything must be twisted to fit it. So I was really surprised at the “not guilty” verdict.

My first thought after reading about the verdict was “they’ll find some way to get this guy. The agenda doesn’t permit such things to happen so they will have to find some way to judicially do Mr. Zimmerman in so the seething masses out there will really think twice about resisting black thugs, or any thugs for that matter.

Now we hear that the NAACP is calling on the Obama administration to pursue “civil rights” charges against Zimmerman and I have no doubt that our current “attorney general” Mr. Holder of “fast and furious” fame will find some way to bring Zimmerman up on some sort of wildly concocted “civil rights” charges that will basically invalidate the not guilty verdict. If they can’t legally invalidate the verdict they will attempt to make Mr. Zimmerman’s life so miserable that he will wish he had been found guilty. The NAACP wrote: “We ask that the Department of Justice file civil rights charges against Mr. Zimmerman for this egregious violation. Please address the travesty of the tragic death of Trayvon Martin by acting today.”

Will Holder attempt to persecute Zimmerman for defending himself? Of course he will. The public has to be taught that you don’t resist black aggression and anyone that does will be dealt with summarily.

From what bits I read here and there it became apparent as the trial wore on that the prosecution had no real evidence of Zimmerman’s guilt. Had they had any they would not have been willing to reduce the charges as they did toward the end. They had to get this guy for something—and if they couldn’t nail him on the original charge they were willing to settle for a lesser charge—just so they nailed him. When that didn’t work then all the black radicals fell back on the NAACP and Mr. Holder, who they are betting will come up with something, anything, no matter how flimsy so they can try Zimmerman on “civil rights” charges. Had Zimmerman been black and Martin Hispanic or white we wouldn’t even be having this discussion. He would have been automatically “not guilty” no need even for a hearing, let alone a trial.

But because the radical left can use this particular situation to make leftist hay while the sun shines it will be given top priority. Check out some of the Marxist websites on the Internet and see what they have to say about this.

Holder and his “Department of Justice” (what a laugh) will now seek to make Zimmerman’s life a living hell. There have been articles on the Internet noting that Zimmerman was no angel. Maybe he wasn’t and isn’t but what he is, according to the jury, is “not guilty” of anything other than defending himself but our “Justice Department” will make sure, before they are done, that defending yourself against aggression is a punishable offense—and that is part of the Marxist agenda.

Is Jackson, Mississippi’s Recently Elected Mayor a Lefitist? (Will the sun rise in the east tomorrow?)

By Al Benson Jr.
Recently a new mayor was elected, after a run-off election) in Jackson, Mississippi. There was almost nothing about it in any of the “news” papers that I saw and I checked with friends in Mississippi, about sixty miles south of Jackson, and they said the same thing. When it came to the new mayor of Jackson it was pretty quiet on the home front and not much news was passed out other than that he had won the election.

It was like everything else in this country anymore. If you want to find out what really goes on you have to check out sources from other countries.

I had never even heard of Jackson’s new mayor until I read an article on Trevor Loudon’s New Zeal Blog, http://www.trevorloudon.com that was a real eye opener. It was entitled “Chokwe Lumumba, Van Jones, Rev. Jeremiah Wright—Race Radicals, Marxist Militants”. Mr. Loudon started the article off with: “What do Jackson, Mississippi’ radical new Mayor Chokwe Lumumba, former Obama ‘Green Jobs Czar’ Van Jones, and former Barack Obama pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright have in common? All of them are veterans of the Communist instigated Black Radical Congress.” Loudon went on to explain how over 70 activists from over twenty cities around the country met in Chicago (where else) to start planning for a Black Radical Congress. Although the participants came as individuals, they represented groups like the New Afrikan People’s Organization, the Labor Party, the Communist Party USA, the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, African American Agenda 2000, the Democratic Socialists of America and “the Communist Party splinter Committees of Correspondence.”

Loudon also mentioned “two Marxist Obama mentors, Timuel Black and Alice Palmer,” who took part. “Palmer was an official of the Communist Party contolled U.S. Peace Council and the bona fide Soviet front International Organization of Journalists.” The Black Radical Congress sounds like an old home week affair for the most radical leftists in the country. And Jackson’s newly elected mayor was part and parcel of it. Do you think the average person in Jackson had or has any idea of all this. I don’t.

In yet another column on the same blog spot Mr. Loudon observed that: “Elected in May, Mr. Lumumba is already making his mark on the city, charting a new direction—one that may have implications far beyond Jackson, indeed far beyond Mississippi. In 1983, the Communist Party USA and Democratic Socialists of America took advantage of a split electoral race to elect their candidate, radical lawyer and former Congressman, Harold Washington, as Mayor of Chicago. Washington appointed hundreds of leftists to city positions and solidified a movement that went on to elect two more allies: Carol Moseley Braun and then Barack Obama to the U.S. Senate from Illinois. Last month, history repeated itself in one of the South’s largest Black majority towns. Activists in Jackson, Mississippi took another advantage of another split field to steer one of their leaders, Chokwe Lumumba, into the mayorality.”

And much like Obama, Lumumba is busily appointing dedicated left-wingers to positions of importance. Loudon noted: “Already Lumumba has appointed a bona fide communist to this transition team—Bill Chandler, Executive Director of the very influential Mississippi Immigrant Rights Alliance. Chandler is a veteran of Cesar Chavez’s United Farm Workers, he is a former Communist Party USA affiliate and was recently a member of the National Coordinating Committee of Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, a Communist Party splinter group. It is because of Chandler and his radical allies in the state legislature that Mississippi has been unable to pass legislation clamping down on illegal immigrants in the state.”

Although folks in Mississippi have not been treated to much information about Jackson’s new mayor, other folks around the country have been quite active in his behalf.

I came across a site http://chokwefundraisernyc.eventbrite.com where they had a group in New York City that was putting on fundraisers back in March, 2013 to help Mr. Lumumba to get elected. Now why should folks in New York City care all that much about who gets elected mayor in Jackson, Mississippi unless his election is part of someone’s agenda?
I also ran across an item on http://www.michronicleonline.com  that said: “Congratulations! Chokwe Lumumba Elected Mayor of Jackson, Mississippi” and it gave a little more background of Lumumba. The article noted: “As an attorney, Lumumba has represented legendary activist, poet, actor and Hip-Hop artist Tupac Shakur in several cases and his grandmother, Assata Shakur, who Lumumba calls a ‘Black Panther heroine. Assata, formerly Joanne Chesimard, was a member of the Black Panther Party and Black Liberation Army. She sought asylum in Cuba after being accused of killing a New Jersey state trooper…” So, to Jackson’s new mayor this Black Panther(ess) was a heroine. Anyone who doesn’t realize that the Black Panthers are a Marxist-oriented group just isn’t paying attention.

Jackson’s new mayor has some really interesting friends and I’d be willing to bet that 99% of the voting population in Jackson doesn’t have and never will have a clue. Jackson is a stepping stone for this man and he seeks to ascend even higher, like Obama, in the leftist pantheon of “gods.”

God and the State

By Al Benson Jr.

Recently someone sent me a You Tube video of an old 1961 story that had been on the Twilight Zone back then. Interestingly enough, I remembered it after all those years, so it must have made some impression on me when I saw it, and at that point in my existence, I knew nothing about nothing. I was a 23 year old jack-ass who didn’t know what I didn’t know. By God’s grace knowledge came later.

At any rate, the story was about a world (presumably under some sort of one world government) where “the state” was supreme and controlled everyone’s life, much as they are seeking to do today. The “state” was in the process of “weeding out the cults” so to speak—dispensing with everyone who was no longer useful. During this lengthy process they came across one seemingly insignificant little man who had been a librarian. The prosecutor demanded that he justify his existence, seeing that the state had done away with books. Not only that, he believed in God, which was even more reprehensible, seeing the “the state” had conclusively proved that there was no God.

It was inevitable that he would be sentenced to death—but he got to choose how he would die. The state was, after all, magnanimous. So he chose to die in 48 hours, to have his death televised and to have the prosecutor in his room with him when he passed from this life, The prosecutor readily agreed, feeling this would be a grand example for all “the people.” The only fly in the buttermilk was that the librarian had his room wired with explosives and he had locked himself and his prosecutor in so the prosecutor couldn’t get out. At that point the librarian took out his outlawed Bible and proceeded to read to the prosecutor out of it. One of the verses he read to the prosecutor was part of the first verse of Psalm 14—“The fool hath said in his heart there is no God…” As the time for the explosives to go off approached the prosecutor really became unhinged, while the librarian calmly read from the Scriptures. Finally, with only a minute to go the prosecutor really lost it and screamed “In the name of God let me out of here.” To which the librarian replied “In the name of God I will let you out.” He did, and then his room exploded. The last scene in the story showed the prosecutor now on trial because he had professed a belief in God and he was, therefore, no longer indispensable, but had now, along with the librarian become obsolete.

It stuck me that, being made in 1961, this little story was almost prescient. We have a “state” today, in this country, as part of a would-be one world government that seeks to do away with the God of Scripture and to replace Him with the “state” and those who run it. Although they don’t come right out and say it (yet) they plan to replace God with either themselves or a “god” of their own choosing, sort of melding all the religions into one. They claim this will promote “diversity” and “tolerance” and understanding between all men. Of course one main thing they have to do to accomplish all this is to either water down the Christian faith or just get rid of it outright, because for them, Jesus Christ and the Christian faith is the real root of their problem. The Scripture forbids all that they seek to do and so they must find a way to mute its influence, to make it seem to be something other than what it really is. Their agenda is to continue to build the Tower of Babel mentality in our day, for their own glory.

Man has got to grasp to reach Heaven, and he does this by seeking to control the environment, the weather, all men’s theological and political views, all education—anything that will influence what people do or how they think. All must be under the purview of the “state” and when it is then man will have created Heaven on earth and man can take credit for it, not God.

Men, especially those in government, have forgotten their history. They tried all this with the French Revolution, the 1848 revolts in Europe, the Bolshevik Revolution, the Great Society, the War on Poverty, and “fundamentally transforming the United States.” All have been miserable failures and continue to be where they operate—and you know something, these people don’t really care how many lives they ruin. They want power and that’s what it’s all about. They want to replace God with themselves and that’s what it’s all about, and it may even seem, in our day, that they will succeed. But you know what, it ain’t gonna happen, no matter how bad they want it and no matter how many of us they liquidate in their pathetic attempts. And their attempts are pathetic. Man trying to be God is pathetic—worse it is ludicrous. Oh, the one world crowd may seem to “gain the whole world” but if they lose their souls doing it what have they gained? They won’t be here forever, but when they leave this life they will be in Eternity forever—either with God or the Devil. They don’t believe that, but some of them will be a lot smarter after they draw their last breath, only then it will be too late. As for them replacing God, what a laugh!

If these puny individuals actually think they are going to be able to usurp God’s power and kingdom they are delusional at best, insane at worst. What they may find is that God will end up using their puny efforts against Him for His own glory and that He will further His kingdom not only in spite of them but because of them. If they are capable of reasonable thought at times, the thought of that must really tick them off—and the thing is, they can’t do anything about it.

All that’s left for them is Hell or repentance. And if they don’t want Hell they better repent “for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

“Independence” Day—if you say so

By Al Benson Jr.

This week the majority of public school-educated folks will celebrate their “freedom” on the fourth of July. Some will put up American flags (some churches already have scores of them up) while others shoot off bunches of fireworks and hot dogs will be consumed by the ton as the country celebrates our “independence.”

We have been educated to celebrate the illusion of freedom, a freedom that has not existed for well over 100 years, but we have been taught to think it’s there, and with what passes for education in our day no one has even thought about questioning any of this. We just accept it. After all, didn’t George Bush tell us the Muslims hated us because of our freedoms? He then went on, with the Patriot Act, to eviscerate what few of those freedoms still existed. If the Muslims hated us for our freedoms, then, in order that we do nothing to “offend” them, those freedoms needed to be subtly removed. Bush and Cheney worked mightily at that and so has Comrade Obama. They have all taken to heart the old saying “freedom is slavery.” And their agenda is to enforce that “freedom.”

So, as we approach the glorious Fourth, stop and think about what freedoms you still enjoy. And are those “freedoms” any different from those the folks in the Soviet Union had?

A friend sent me an email recently noting that there are currently 16 gun control bills now pending in the US House and Senate. The Senate, thanks to monumental pressure from the Gun Owners of America and other groups, was forced to vote down gun control measures they would have loved to have passed for Comrade Obama, last April. With elections coming up next year they had to be careful—but wait until after next year’s elections and see what happens. Comrade Obama has been instructed by his CFR handlers to gut the Second Amendment and no matter what he says, he is working on that. Don’t think he’s finished because he lost round one. Marxists are nothing if not tenacious. Patriots and Christians should be that tenacious but they seldom are.

So what “freedoms” do you still enjoy? Well, you have the right to do what the government tells you to do. You have the right to like what the government tells you to like. You have the right to dislike what the government tells you not to like. You have the right to partake of the leftist worldview the federal government thinks you should have—and if you decide not to partake of that worldview you have the right to be spied on, have your email monitored, have your Facebook account tapped into, have your phone calls monitored and you may, if you make enough of a fuss, earn the right to drone surveillance or possible assassination if you really tick someone in Washington off. After all, didn’t Obama appoint an “assassination” czar awhile back?

I tell you, folks, with an impressive list of “freedoms” like this, how can anyone complain? After all, don’t we have the freedom to be safe rather than free? The feds tell us we do, so it must be so. After all, if you can’t trust your government who can you trust—right?

At this point the federal government is in the process of depriving us of our first, second, fourth, fifth and ninth and tenth amendment rights—and we have the unbridled freedom to sit back and watch them do it. And if, for some foolish reason we choose not to agree with that, well there are always those drones.

The old bandit in the John Wayne movie said “You ought to leave a man his illusions.” And the feds have, this year as in many years past, left us with the illusion that we are a free people when nothing could be further from the truth.

We have been taught that evil is good, that bitter is sweet, that less is really more, that freedom is slavery, and it would seem that we love to have it so because it never occurs to us to question it. Someone once said “None are so enslaved as those who think they are free.” That describes this country today. “The brainwashed never wonder” do they?
