Sheridan the War Criminal

by Al Benson Jr.
Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Clifford Dowdey, in his book The History of the Confederacy 1832-1865  had some commentary about the subject of this article, Philip H. Sheridan and it was not particularly complementary. Mr. Dowdey noted of Sheridan that he “…was an undersized man (five feet three) with an oversized head, in all ways…But Grant perceived in the man a quality he wanted in his all-out, no-holds-barred war of total conquest. The Sheridans, Milroys, and Hunters had a different kind of arrogance from the neo-princelings of the Cotton South. They had the arrogance of unrestrained might. Without regard for rights–of belligerants or fellow citizens or even of the so-called ‘human rights,’ let alone of the Union–these bully boys had a lust for physical violence and wanton destruction.”

In other words, Sheridan and Sherman and others of their ilk were going to wage total, unrestrained war on the South, both on civilians as well as soldiers, not because it was right, but because they could do it and get away with it. He noted all this on page 321 of the above mentioned book.

He also wrote another book, somewhat in the same vein, called Lee’s Last Campaign  which was the story of Lee’s 1864 campaign against Grant. Both were excellent books and I recommend them if they are still available. In this book he also commented about Sheridan. On page 219 he said:: “Only recently promoted from command of an infantry division, Sheridan saw in his weaker opponent (Stuart) the opportunity both for advancement and for the expression of his pugnacious assertiveness. Of him it could never be said, ‘It’s how the game is played that counts.’ Winning was everything to him; he wanted to beat people, to dominate by will or authority or physical force. A bully-boy with the weapons and sanction of power behind him, he personally hated Southerners of a privileged background.” He probably hated most other Southerners too.

During the Indian Wars of the late 1860s and 1870s he commented that “the only good Indian is a dead Indian.” So he must have hated the Indians too, and he certainly could not claim they were privileged Southerners. So Sheridan was not only jealous, but he was a bully in the bargain. So let’s don’t “be nice” to him and try to pass over these attributes of his. He was what he was, unattractive as it was. The man got his kicks pushing people who could not always fight back around.

Awhile back I came across an article by James Bovard that was published on February 2, 2015 on http://www.militaryhistory.com called Sheridan’s Scorched Earth Campaign–The Union Army’s Forgotten War Crime. Mr. Bovard observed, of the War of Northern Aggression that “While popular historians have recently canonized the war as a veritable holy crusade to free the slaves, in reality civilians were intentionally targeted and brutalized, particularly in the final year of the conflict. The most dramatic forgotten atrocity of the Civil War occurred a little more than 150 years ago when Union General Philip Sheridan laid waste to a hundred mile swath of the Shenandoah Valley leaving vast numbers of women and children at risk of starvation. Surprisingly, this scorched earth campaign has been largely forgotten, foreshadowing how subsequent brutal military operations would also vanish into the Memory Hole…Grant ordered Sheridan to ‘do all the damage to railroads and crops you can…if the war is to last another year, we want the Shenandoah Valley to remain a barren waste.’ Sheridan set to the task with vehemence, declaring that ‘the people must be left nothing but their eyes to weep with over the war’ and promised that, when he was finished, the valley, ‘from Winchester to Staunton will have little in it for man or beast’.” To put it bluntly, he planned on starving out the civilian population, as the war effort left almost no one else there except for whatever armies came through.

And because those civilians lived in a state that had legitimately seceded from the glorious Union “Sheridan acted as if they had automatically forfeited their property, if not their very lives.” To be fair, not all the Union soldiers were totally on board with what went on. Bovard noted that “An Ohio major wrote in his diary that the burning ‘does not seem real soldierly work. We ought to enlist a force of scoundrels for such work.’…After one of Sheridan’s favourite aides was shot by Confederate soldiers, the general ordered his troops to burn all houses within a five mile radius. After many outlying dwellings had been torched, the small town at the center–Dayton– was spared only after one Federal officer outright disobeyed Sheridan’s order.”

So it seems that, after three years of a war that the Union had not been able to win the Lincoln administration finally decided to adopt the principle of total war to “scourge the South into submission.” And about the same time, Sherida’s fellow bully-boy, Sherman, was spouting about “repopulating Georgia, but only after a “certain class of people–men, women and children” were killed or banishet. No war crimes to see here, folks, just move along–and make sure you buy all those books by Northern “historians” that tell you the war was all about slavery.

Bovard noted that the “carnage inflicted by Sheridan, Sherman, and other Northern commanders made the South’s post-war recovery far slower and multiplied the misery of both white and black survivors.”

Bovard ended his article with a warning for us today. He said: “Since 1864, no prudent American should have expected this nation’s wars to have happy or uplifting endings. Unfortunately, as long as the spotlight is kept off atrocities, most citizens will continue to underestimate the odds that wars will spawn debacles and injustices that return to haunt us.”

And as for wars subsequent to the War of Northern Aggression, with their atrocities being pushed down the Memory Hole, I would recommend  the Kennedy Brothers recent book Yankee Empire  published only last year by Shotwell Publishing in Columbia, South Carolina.

You have to wonder, with Sheridan’s utter disregard for private property, if he had any of those Forty-Eighter generals under his command that influenced his decision to torch everything in sight in the Shenandoah Valley. The war crimes against Southern civilians have never been treated to any great amount of attention. A couple excellent books have been written about them but they have never received any amount of official attention. We hear all this blather about reparations for slavery when all the slaves have been dead for almost a hundred years. What about reparations for Southern folks who had their property destroyed by the likes of Sheridan and Sherman and whose ancestors, many of them, faced starvation and privation because the Union armies destroyed literally everything they had?

At the risk of sounding negative–don’t hold your breath waiting for any of this to ever be dealt with.

Shadow Banning

by Al Benson Jr.

Wikipedia had some interesting commentary on this subject on their site that I thought was worth noting. I won’t go into all of it but just a little so folks that don’t know can see what it is.

The Wikipedia article noted: “Shadow banning…is the act of blocking or partially blocking a user or their content from an online community such that it will not be readily apparent to the user that they have been banned. By making a user’s contributions  invisible or less prominent to other members of the service, the hope may be that in the absence  of reactions to their comments, the problematic or otherwise out-of-favor user will become bored or frustrated and leave the site.”

In other words, they ban, or almost ban, your material in such a way that you will hardly notice it has been done. They do this by making your material, your articles, comments, or whatever you post “less prominent” to those who have been used to seeing it out there on a regular basis.

I have several friends that follow the material I post on my blog spots. Awhile back, (and I may have mentioned this once) one  sent me an email telling me I had been shadow banned. At the time, I had not even thought of such a thing. Naïve of me, I know, given the nature of those people that I usually write about. I occasionally used to get hate mail from some who disagreed with my perspectives, but hadn’t seen any of that in quite awhile and so did not have this kind of thing in my mind.

Anyway, my friend did some of the research I had not even thought about and explained to me how he figured it out. He put the names of my blogs up on a search engine (maybe more than one) and explained to me that, in most cases, all he could find in relation to my blog articles on most of them was one direct entry into my sites and every other entry was from an article of mine posted on someone else’s sites, so that if you were looking for one of my articles you could only find it on somebody else’s site, not directly on mine. This cuts traffic to my site down considerably. Though most of the  people that use my articles do list my blogs as their source, if you read the entire article on their site then you have no need to click onto my site.

Please understand, I am not complaining about the good folks that post my articles on their sites. The vast majority of them do that to help me get the word out and, for that, I am grateful to them

There was a time when my articles were listed, both from my own sites and others combined, on as many as a dozen pages on search engines. Those days are gone. Now you are fortunate if you can find listings on three pages, so something has happened.

The other night I typed out the blog address for one of my blogs on a search engine and there was not even one direct listing for my site. Everything was via someone else’s site. The same day I got a notice from a friend of mine in New England telling me that when he tried to click onto my site for the latest article I had sent him, he got a notice telling him my site was “not safe” and so he was hesitant to forward my article, as he usually does, to others.

I have received that same type of warning about a handful of sites I usually check out over the past few years. I went into those sites anyway and kept going back into them and eventually those warnings ceased. There was nothing “wrong” with any of those sites except that they tended to comment in areas that were  politically incorrect and so someone was attempting to warn people away from those sites lest they get to read and digest information the Establishment would rather they not see.

“Big Brother” is always watching. All the blather about internet security and “privacy” for all is a joke! We are all watched, checked on, monitored, and if we continue to post stuff someone doesn’t approve of, well, they work to do something about that. I have now talked to a dozen other people that have had this or similar problems with what they send out and receive.

I have a friend in the Southern Heritage Movement who used to include a little picture of a Confederate Battle Flag on each email he sent out. All of a sudden, one day, his emails started bouncing back to him as “undeliverable.” He couldn’t figure out what the problem was–until he started to connect the dots and realized what it was. So he took the little Confederate Flag off the emails he was sending out and, guess what–all of a sudden his emails started getting through again. What a coincidence! So please don’t insult me by telling me no one is watching what we do. They watch everything we do. Everything we send out or receive is watched by somebody.

I have had similar experiences, where I have used the word Secession in the title of an article and when I would go to send it out the email would not work and the article would go nowhere. However when I changed the word secession to something a little less obvious the articles would, somehow, manage to get mailed. You can’t make this stuff up–you learn by experiencing it.

What has escaped me for awhile is why anyone would want to bother trying to blunt what little influence I might have. I can see them going after InfoWars or Drudge or Zero Hedge or some of those other sites that reach millions most every day. Those kinds of sites reach more people in one day than I will in the next ten years! Why are they worried about me or others like me that will never have huge audiences?

The conclusion I have come to is that the Deep State, the Establishment, Big Brother, or whatever you want to call this Leviathan, is afraid of people finding out the truth. The real truth scares them because if it ever got to enough people who could really grasp it, their positions of power and control would be in severe jeopardy and so  they have to attempt to shut down any and all attempts to tell people what really goes on. Even really small efforts like those of myself and others that I know personally!

The Wikipedia article noted their attempts to drive “problematic” and “out-of-favor” users toward boredom and frustration so they would just hang it up and quit. That may work for some, but not all. In the final analysis, it is the Lord that directs people to our sites and He will direct to our sites those He wants to see what we have to say, be they many or few. That’s up to Him. Jesus started out with 12 disciples and look what, in His Father’s providence, He accomplished. None of us will ever do what Jesus did but I think the Lord has certain people out there that He wants each of us to reach and if we remain faithful He will see to it that we are able to  do that–and Big Brother won’t be able to do anything about it–and I think he realizes that and it frustrates him no end.

Celebrating Lenin’s Birthday

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The kids in our public schools in this town, and probably most others as well, had the day off from school today. Whether they realized it or not, they were celebrating the birth of Vladimir Lenin, the Communist butcher of the Soviet Union.

Over the years, Lenin’s birth was never celebrated here until they started celebrating  it on April 22, 1970, which was the hundredth anniversary of his birth. Since that date it has been celebrated every year in this country.

Although they don’t often mention his name during these celebrations, they do try to promote ideas that would have warmed the cockles of his heart–ideas such as government control of the environment. Lenin would have just loved the “Green New Deal” that is presently being touted by all the up and coming socialists in what passes for our Congress today. The use of fossil fuels being outlawed, the use of personal automobiles being curtailed because of that. all these ideas of “free stuff” for everyone–Lenin would have been all in favor of  all this because, in the end, it all bespeaks of government control over everything and that was Lenin’s fondest dream.

Government control of the means of  production, government control over your ability to travel, government control over your child’s education–and therefore government control over what your kids are taught for history or about their culture and heritage. I can see Lenin simply drooling in anticipation over all this–his fondest dream.

He didn’t live long enough to see all that, poor baby, but in our day his erstwhile disciples are laboring 28 hours a day (overtime) to make sure all this gets brought about in his memory.

And, as for the celebration of his birthday on every April 22nd, well, they still don’t mention his name to all those “useful idiots” they have conned into celebrating his birthday.  It’s almost like they are ashamed, or afraid, to let people know what they are really celebrating, because if they really knew, some of them might not celebrate it at all–so they don’t tell them what this day is really all about. Instead they cover that information up by calling  this day Earth Day. That should be enough to fool the uninitiated and the naïve–and usually it is!

How Do I Know???

by Al Benson Jr.

How do I know that as Jesus the Christ says in Scripture “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father but by me.” is true? Well, for one thing, the Holy Scripture is the inspired word of God. That’s the main way. But the fact that points to His authority and divinity is that the world hates Him and what He and His followers stand for. And it isn’t just the totally secular world that hates Him. It is the religious world as well.

The secularists and the Muslims hate each other, but they will work together for anything that denigrates Jesus. The Communists and the Fascists supposedly hate each other (not really at the leadership levels) but everywhere else, but both hate Jesus.

Even apostate Christians hate Jesus and they will willingly work with many other anti-Christ groups and movements that attempt to remove Jesus from His throne, a throne some of them would love to occupy along with their father, the “father of lies.” It’s interesting how many of these groups are really evolutionist in their thinking. The thought that God created this world in six days just irks all manner of humanists, communists, socialists and others absolutely to death. They can’t handle that anymore than they can handle Saint Hillary having lost the last presidential election and so they have to try to do something, anything, to overrule that fact.

They have to try to destroy western civilization because with Europe as Christendom that is something hateful in their minds and that needs to go, to be replaced with something, whatever, that is steeped in paganism.

The same holds true in this country with the continuing war on anything Southern.  Flags with Christian symbols on them and statues erected to commemorate good men, many of whom were Christian men, need to be pulled down and destroyed because they are supposedly “racist.” You’d think that no one but Christians had ever been “racist” if you listened to the so-called news media. Whatever racism exists in most anti-Christian groups is totally overlooked because most of the media people hate Jesus every bit as much as the frothing-at-the-mouth leftists.

So Christianity has to go and be replaced with some form of socialism or, just as bad, “compassionate conservatism.” And the Christian heritage of the South has to be replaced with some sort of leftist ideology, some variation of compassionate communism that nurtures and care for everyone. You’ve heard all this drivel before and you can still hear it if you care to tune in and watch CNN, though why any sane person would I can’t imagine.

Shorn of all the sophistry and far-left talking points, what it all boils down to is that the world–the Muslin-Zionist-Communist-Fascist-Humanist world hates Jesus the Christ because of who He is and what He represents–salvation and eventual liberty, through Him, for all mankind, something the Christ haters want to avoid at all costs because, for them, hatred of Jesus is the ultimate power trip.

They want to control the ultimate human tower of Babel they hope to create if only they can unseat Christ from His throne. It won’t happen, but they keep trying anyway. It’s all they have left.

In the meantime, Happy Easter. The stone has been rolled away from the tomb and Jesus has risen–and they’ve even tried to lie about that. What a bunch of losers!

“Dixie-cide”

by Al Benson Jr.
Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The term “Dixie-cide” came to mind, for some unknown reason, early this morning while I was still in bed. It was too early to get up for the day, and, being a night owl (when I do much of my research and writing) I am not noted as an early riser.

Wanting to assure myself that this term was not original with me, I checked it out on the internet and found that this term had been used in an excellent article by Dissident Mama back in 2017 that was published by the Abbeville Institute. I don’t recall seeing the article at the time, but with my faulty memory, I may have and just don’t remember.

I’ve read some of Dissident Mama’s  articles on various topics over the years and have usually found myself pretty much in agreement with the sentiments expressed in them. We are, as some would say, pretty much on the same page. So as I went back and read the Dixie-cide  article I had to agree with the sentiments expressed therein.

Dissident Mama started the article off with: “Modern progressives are just as evil in their bloodlust against the South as were William Tecumseh Sherman and Philip Sheridan. Todays leftists may not yet be waging the shock-and-awe total warfare that the Union generals inflicted upon Southern civilians (whites and blacks alike) and their dwellings, businesses, churches, infrastructure, and food supply, but their aim is still the same: to have the Southern tradition and her people ‘annihilated and destroyed’.” I can’t disagree with that verdict. It should be obvious to anyone who is even remotely paying attention and who doesn’t have mush for brains. The only difference between Sherman, Sheridan, and today’s leftists is that, so far, today’s leftists do not have federal warrant to commit their acts of atrocity–yet! I’m sure those socialists in government who parade themselves as Democrats would dearly love to find some way to authorize the blatant misdeeds of the left so they could legally turn them loose on the South. Even worse than them are those in back of them, behind the curtain, as it were who are the ones really promoting the bloodlust against the South and her people. These are the unelected rulers we never hear about but who are, in reality, the ones pushing their Deep State agenda against us in the South. And as far as those in other areas, who look at what is being done to us in the South and do nothing to defend us or our heritage, just wait. When the Deep State and its leftist toadies in congress and the media get through with us, then your “time in the barrel” will be coming. The South is not the only target of leftist vitriol–it’s just the first target.

I guess you could define “Dixie-cide” as “The willful hatred of and willingness to destroy any and all remembrance of Southern history, heritage, culture, and people in the South.” Sound extreme? It isn’t! After all, if Sherman wanted Southerners “annihilated and destroyed” what makes you think more modern leftists want anything less? They learned from Sherman. Question is, who did Sherman learn from? Possibly from Lincoln’s Marxists?

Dissident Mama noted that “Sherman said that his motive was the ‘extermination, not of soldiers alone…but of the people’ of the South. Sherman undoubtedly had in mind, in pure leftist fashion, the recolonization of much of the South by fine, upstanding Northern abolitionists and other apostates. What better way to do away with the mostly Christian culture of the Old South than by re-peopling the South with Northern unbelievers and agnostics (Sherman was an agnostic) after a requisite number of Christian believers had been “exterminated?”

Sherman didn’t quite get everything he wanted but his spiritual descendants in Antifa and other such organizations are busily at work in our day trying to fulfil his greatest expectations. The wanton destruction these people are visiting on the South by their destruction of our monuments and the desecration of our cemeteries and the tearing down of our flags is but the first stage of Sherman’s fondest dream of Southern annihilation. After the flags and monuments are gone, what (or who) comes next?

If they can’t “annihilate” us all then at least they can make sure that they so destroy our history and heritage that our children and grandchildren will know nothing about what their ancestors did or why they did it. They are using our schools even now to fulfil that purpose. If you doubt that, ask your grandchildren about what is being taught to them in school about their history, culture and heritage. You may not like some of the answers you get back.

The South has been under attack, both psychological and physical, since before the War of Northern Aggression commenced and that attack has not abated. If anything in recent years it has increased. One of the main problems in all this is that so many of our people have been so bemused by the drivel presented by the mainstream media as “entertainment” that they have lost the ability to discern what is being done to them and to their children. That’s not by accident.

To the extent that has been done, Dixie-cide has been successful. Many will say, even in our churches, that our heritage and history don’t matter anymore. I respectfully disagree. I feel that if our heritage had not been mostly Christian it would not be under such assault. This is far more than a political issue. It is a spiritual issue and only when our people wake up and begin again to realize that will we be able to resist.

Today someone sent me a link to a video, a you tube video I think. The title was The Attack on the Confederacy–Wolf Age and it was narrated by Stephen McNallen. It was not terribly long but Mr. McNallen did a good job with it. Readers might find it instructive.

Don’t Know What’s Going On At The Border? Ask Cloward And Piven.

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Lots of folks who don’t have access to the alternative media, or even particularly want it, are questioning what is going on at our Southern border. They are at least mildly curious as to why these caravans from Central America all of a sudden seem to be wanting to get into the United States in droves. There has always been some problem with illegal immigration across our Southern border, but nothing like what is going on now. If this continues it will swamp US resources trying to deal with it. I hate to sound pessimistic folks, but that is the whole idea. That’s the name of the game.

There is a strategy being employed in this scenario and it is not just a spontaneous situation, an isolated occurrence, it has been planned this way. Some have laid the blame at the door of the United Nations, and though I don’t know that for sure, it does sound like something they would be guilty of.

This strategy being employed along our Southern border is called The Cloward-Piven Strategy. Never heard of it, you say. I have written about it before, awhile back. You must have missed those articles. According to https://oathkeepers.org for November 18, 2018: “First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven (both longtime members of the Democratic Socialists of America, where Piven  today is an honorary chair), the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.” Early promoters of this plan to take down this country cited Saul Alinsky as one of their inspirations.

Does it surprise you that people charting the demise of this country have had prestigious positions at Columbia University? Given the anti-American bent of most colleges and universities in our day and for decades before that, it shouldn’t.

I doubt that if this country falls it will be from outside invasion. Rather it will be because our public (and some private) “institutions of learning” have been programming their students to participate willingly in our downfall, thinking that they are somehow promoting the greater good by tearing the country down and replacing it with some sort of vile socialist institution. In other words, for them, evil has become good and slavery has become freedom. And how many people continue to fork over big bucks so their kids can become propagandized in the glories of socialism–Venezuela style! Too many! So when will they ever get it? When they have lost everything–including their children!

An article on https://www.americanthinker.com for October 29, 2018 dealt with much of this, and it even had a picture of Cloward and Piven  standing behind Bill Clinton as he signed the Motor Voter Law into existence back in 1993.

This article, written by Brian Joondeph, also observed: “in addition to expanding the welfare rolls internally, another way to overwhelm the system is to import more welfare recipients with the goal of overwhelming the system. This occurs via immigration, both legal and illegal. Think of what the current migrant caravan means in terms of Cloward-Piven.  Thousands of poor, unskilled migrants entering the U.S. They need healthcare, education, housing, food, clothing and other basic needs which all cost money. Who pays for this? The migrants arrive with the clothes on their backs,  not with job offers from Fortune 500 companies and guaranteed self-sufficiency.” As for who pays for it all–why the lucky taxpayer gets to foot the bill for it all, and if he dares to complain why then he’s a “racist” or even worse, a “white nationalist” no matter what color he is.

I’ve noticed just recently that Trump has threatened to take many of the illegals entering the country and bus them to some of these sanctuary cities that liberals and socialists are so enamored of and drop them off in neighborhoods peopled by mostly white liberals and socialists.  The white socialists and liberals don’t like that idea at all. It repulses them. It’s what they’ve been howling for and they love it “Just as long as it’s not in my backyard!” I won’t even label them hypocrites. They are cultural Marxists, which means they have a different standard for themselves than they do for us “great unwashed.” We are all supposed to accept and love the hordes of illegals coming in–just as long as they don’t have to get their hands dirty with them! I won’t tell you what I think of such liberals and socialists–it wouldn’t be  printable.

But anyway,  that’s what is going on at our Southern border–an agenda put forth by members of the Democratic Socialists of America to help take your country down. Maybe you should read some of what I have been reading about this on the internet and drop a letter to the editor of your local newspaper about it, or even one to your elected representatives in Sodom on the Potomac.  At least it will let them know that you realize what game is afoot.

Globalism in Public School Textbooks is Nothing New

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Ever since Donald Trump has been in office there has been an ongoing dialogue as to which is better for the country, globalism or nationalism. Actually, of the two, I’d rather have neither, as I think localism is a much better choice but since most folks don’t think that way anymore, I suppose nationalism is the lesser of the two evils.

However, even nationalism gets a bad rap in public school textbooks, and has for quite awhile now.  I pulled an article out of my files the other night from the old Borger News-Herald in Borger, Texas for August 23, 1973. The title of the article was Textbook Curtails National Liberty.

It dealt with the State Board of Education in California adopting a new series of social studies textbooks that was guaranteed to become controversial. It seems that the 1970s was a landmark decade for public schools across the country to start adopting material with a more pointed One World Government viewpoint. The title of the series was Land of the Free. 

A reporter for the Anaheim Bulletin spent three days going over these textbooks. He found that the books, designed for kindergarten through fourth grade “promoted the idea that they (the children) are ‘global citizens,’  and that the United States is an arm of a ‘world community’.”

The authors of these textbooks have noted that nationalism is a ‘cult” which seems to hinder the development of a “world consciousness.” It then becomes the task of the textbook to “bring international political arrangements fully into line and produce a world political mechanism that will promote the best interests of all peoples everywhere.”

The textbook producers seem to have a major  problem with the idea of a country considering itself to be a “sovereign nation.” They feel that the “doctrine of sovereignty of the nation has been the curse of the modern world.” Undoubtedly they thought the old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was the ideal working model for the rest of  the world–surely not much national sovereignty in that arrangement.

You can see from this that the people that write your kid’s public school textbooks most definitely have a globalist agenda and if you are like me you find precious little to agree with in any of that.

No national sovereignty? So who runs the country? The United Nations? That would be a perfect start for One World Government–that’s what the United Nations is all about–telling every member country what it can and cannot do. Can you think of a more compelling reason to get the United States out of the United Nations? I can’t!

And with textbooks like those noted in this article, I can’t think of a more compelling reason to get your kids out of the public school system. The last thing they need to be reading is “social studies” texts promoting One World Government, at the fourth grade level or any level.
