A Few Questions About The Lincoln Assassination That Should Be Asked

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

There are many questions that can be asked about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, and most of them probably won’t be. Either they will not be thought of, or most of those who write about this event will seek to direct the questions into other areas that will fail to deal with events that should be dealt with in order to focus on the Establishment version of this history. It’s sort of like the Warren Commission Report on the Kennedy assassination. Thinking people realize the Warren Commission Report is a croc, to put it bluntly, but it is still the “official version” of what is supposed to have happened and so it is what all the court historians refer everyone to. They realize it’s all baloney. What they hope for is that you don’t. Same with the Lincoln assassination. The “official version” has lots of problems but we are all directed to it anyway in the hope we will be too stupid to know what questions to ask.

But questions have been asked. Some of them I had never thought of. Dave McGowan, who has authored the excellent series of articles Why Everything You Think You Know About The Lincoln Assassination Is Wrong  has asked some of them.

For instance, he has questioned why Booth even used the weapon he did. I have never seen this questioned before, but McGowan questions it. He notes: “…after the passage of 149 years, it doesn’t appear that anyone has ever thought to question why Booth, an intelligent and educated man by all accounts, would choose such a riduculous weapon to take with him on his mission…The President is under armed guard, or at least he’s supposed to be. He’s also supposed to be in the company of General Ulysses S. Grant, who is known to always be armed. Of course, Grant has fortuitously opted to get the hell out of Dodge just hours before he was to have accompanied the Lincolns to the theater, but you shouldn’t have any way of knowing that, just as you shouldn’t have any way of knowing that Parker (the guard) will desert his post…” So, if you are Booth, “…you have to assume that you’re going to have to get past at least two armed attendants, and probably more, to get to the President. And you’re going to have to do that without firing a shot, since you only have one and you will need to save that for Abe. And since the only realistic chance you have of actually killing Lincoln with your wildly inaccurate weapon is by sneaking up behind him and delivering a contact wound to the head, you’re going to have to get past any guards without making any noise. And since Grant is also on the hit list, you’re going to have to kill him as well, which I guess you’ll have to do by bludgeoning him with your empty gun. That should work out pretty well.” Given what Booth is supposed to have known, does anyone see how ridiculous this is? Has anyone even thought of this besides McGowan? I hadn’t.

However, given the situation that Booth is supposed to have known about, him taking that little one-shot Derringer to do the deed makes almost no sense at all. Anyone with his wits about him at all would have wanted some kind of repeating pistol to go in with. And there were pocket pistols in those days he could have used. Admittedly they were bigger than a Derringer but they would still have fit in his coat pocket.

McGowan, as if talking to Booth, states: “…you have set a very ambitious goal for yourself. You must first get to the president, who is sitting in a private box in a crowded theater with at least two armed attendants. You must then kill the president with a single shot, because your weapon doesn’t allow for second chances, and also somehow kill General Grant. You must then, in an unarmed state, make an escape first from the theater and then from the city, and you must get past an armed guard at the bridge. And you have to do all that with just one bullet. It’s hard to see how anything could go wrong with such a brilliant plan.” You have to give McGowan credit for a rather dry sense of humor. But he continues: “There are other weapons available. Weapons better suited to your mission. And as an alleged Southern operative, you should surely know that.” But, is Booth the “alleged Southern operative” we have been told he is and does he know this? A Southern sympathizer, no doubt, but does that translate into an “operative”?

So you have to wonder why Booth went in with a single-shot Derringer, given the supposed circumstances. Or did he know more than we think he knew and if so, who told him?

McGowan also wonders why Booth did not disguise himself. He would have had to know that once identified his acting career would have been at and end. He noted that actors in those days often traveled with trunks full of disguises for the different parts they might play. He observes of Booth that “You could easily don a convincing disguise so as not to be easily recognized/ Then you don’t have to worry about getting out of the city alive; all you have to do is make it out of the theater, quickly ditch the disguise, and then you can circle around and rejoin the crowd at Ford’s without arousing any suspicion at all.” Yet this is not what happens.

You also have to wonder who planned the scenario that took place. It almost sounds like, the way it was planned, John Wilkes Booth was hung out to dry and didn’t realize it. Over the years as I have read about this I have had the feeling that there were lots more people involved than John Wilkes Booth and his merry little band of misfits.

McGowan asks questions I’ve not seen asked before. Theodore Roscoe asks questions no one else had dealt with. A couple years ago I read Bill O’Reilly’s book about the Lincoln assassination. O’Reilly broke no new ground. He just regurgitated the Establishment line and asked no questions the Establishment would not have wanted asked. Somehow, that doesn’t satisfy. It may be fun reading for those who don’t really want to learn anything. Real history seldom works that way and it didn’t with the Lincoln assassination and its aftermath either.

  1. Al, while the connect connections and implications are not explicitly clear, correlation there is.
    Some interesting insights and history here right up your ally. How much is revisionist influenced or connected, or even effected somehow is not clear, by certain things here connect certain dots. There are some glaring holes, such as in respect to Lincoln and his marxist’s underlying war of aggression to stop the confederation from becoming a sovereign economic and civilizational nation in its own right.
    One thing is for sure, abolition of the leviathan state, in all and every of its forms, is an imperative for us people of Liberty, if we are to be true Freemen in an unfettered compact of some form of republican form of self home government in every sense, from unfettered industrious economy to Christianity.
    Time to go back to basics before the Conspiracy in Philadelphia took root, that constitutional administrative centralism model is an unmitigated disaster. Of biblical proportions. The sonofabitches will never permit us Freemen from seceding from their clutches without a fight. A bloody conflict seems inevitable regarding who and what they are, and our Liberty, and their generational tyranny by economic permanent state being what it is and whats at stake.

    The mice that roared will do so again. In fact I the mice started tuning up it’s roar under that dry wash overpass in Nevada and up in Burns Oregon.

    In anycase, this is a great read. I’m sure you are cognizant of much more of what it contains than I do. Certainly thought of you the moment I began reading it.

    • I came across some of this stuff and felt it was worth pursuing in a series of articles. It’s one more area we have been lied to about. I read the Zero Hedge article about the British hand in the Deep State but need to go back and reread in more depth. The thought that comes off the top of my head is can the deep state be traced back to before the War of Independence? I don’t know yet, or maybe you have to meld it in with the Illuminati someway. If this series goes well I am going to try more of this kind of articles if I can manage to be able to concentrate on the research.

  2. If you recall, I did a series of ten articles on the Bundy situation in Nevada in April of 2014. That situation is still not resolved and the federal plan to displace Western ranchers is still afoot. Displacing them destroys their unique culture, which is also part of the plan, just like destroying our Southern culture is part of the plan. Anything uniquely American in origin has to go.

    • Yeah, that appears to be linked to entire realm of Agenda 21 and what they call “depopulating the unsecured spaces” so as to lock up and secure the wealth it contains in resources and land itself for their sole benefit.
      Crowd the remaining population into the urban enclaves in order to control that concentrated human slavery resource on much more easier levels.

      I believe the Fabian’s, in certain fashion linked to certain factions, or other connections, to the Jacobin’s.
      I know first hand from being raised in the north country, and living next town over from Fabian NH, which today is Brettonwoods, where the Brettonwoods conferences at the Mt. Washington hotel have taken place.
      From what I’ve been able to discern, the Tori Colonial loyalists who survived the 1st war of secession, vowed to take back what they believe was stolen right out from under them in the Revolutionary war. Essentially the wealth and resources of the new world. It was their’s by divine and royal right. One item of particular note, that old man Rothschild later stated, it would require the totalitarian control of the money supply, and at least 150 years to destroy what was created by the Colonial terrorists, because they understood as long as a vibrant strong self determining and self reliant people who made America what it was, would always stand in the way of world dominion. It was indeed a shining light that they abhorred for what it represented, and the roll on order world spanning effects of Liberty Andrew Skousen’s “5000 Year Leap” created.

      Many of those Fabian Loyalist’s where gifted with “Kings Grants”, thousands of acre land grants, as rewards for their service and loyalty to King George’s crown. Remember, after all, Colonial America was not a part of England, it was the King’s private holdings.

      Still today those King’s Grant’s are held by the hereditary decedents. Another interesting bit of history about those grants and smaller, 1000 acre more or less enclaves, they where literally bug-out locations for the Loyalists during the war of 1812. And that is what I always understood the 1812 war of aggression was essentially for, to take back that unparalleled wealth of land and it’s resources, their divine royal holdings, the new world.

      Lot of history up in that middle section of NH. It was the 4th Generation war central, over in Stark, across into Vt, part of the Daniel Webster corridor, where Col. Stark began organizing Roger’s Rangers, the solders who fought at the British Army’s begging, to oust the French and allied Indian tribes up the Hudson, thru lake Champlain into the St. Lawerence valley. Those men, Roger’s Rangers, later went on to be the most influential small unit infantry combat leaders, who stopped the Britt’s just as Washington was all but crushed, the turning point being the battle of King’s Mountain in N. Carolina, soon after the succeeding battle’s up into South West Virginia where the British surrendered. Another note on that, Lee’s father was one of those spectacular combat officers involved in those pivotal battles up the Carolina. Took almost to the bitter end, after the Britt;’s had waged Sherman scorched earth genocide from Florida up into N.C., leaving nothing in their wake, total genocide of the land, and people, because this is what the Tori’s in parliament demanded be done to do away once and for all those colonial rebel’s.
      So you can see why the Fabian’s have had such a genocidal blood grudge, loosing everything twice so completely.
      And I believe that Yankee marxian totalitarian bent has never diminished after 245 years. It is the Long March in spades.
      Of course I have no where near the knowledge in any complete sense, but it is not difficult to connect the dots in a broad sense.

      What a lot of us have to come to terms with if we are to truly appreciate the ramifications here, is these tyrants have such incredible hate and envy, that it has survived and thrived for two and a half centuries, that it has spawned such evil along the way, that is some serious hate my friend. And all that stands in their way, all that has ever stood in their way, is us dirt people. Deplorable’s if you will, with our rifles and our consent, and our primal God granted primal natural born rights.
      These people are out to extinguish the Christian Greco/Roman culture, and the entire race, of us Men of The West. As far asa they are concerned, nothing can be left of us. Every sign, symbol, code, precept, all our history, ground under their jackboot as nothing but ashes, our bones and our spirits. Gone.

      There is a real gem of a historical accounting of the 1st war of Fabian yankee aggression, its only 99 cents on Kindle. I believe it is a most exemplary and hardly known work you and all of need to read:
      Sidney George Fisher’s ‘The True History of The American Revolution’
      A serious diamond in the rough.
      Fisher based much of his research on historical pamphlets, and the pamphlet war of hearts & minds waged among the colonies. That was the world wide web of the day. It is a brilliant and very outlier work. Unlike any accounting I have read.
      It is in some ways on par with North’s Conspiracy in Philadelphia.
      It is a bit dry in the beginning, but oh boy does it get a head of steam. There are a lot of links to a lot of loose ends that fill in gaps federal propaganda and agitprop, and the revisionists and humanists have created.
      I can’t recommend it enough.

      By the way Al, heads up, Word Press has been thoroughly converged. They dumped my entire blog, booted me off WP. They been blocking my comments also. It’s on brother.
      They are getting desperate to “stop the message”. I’m surprised you are still here if they banished me. I imaging Gary Hunt and his Outpost of Freedom won’t last long either on WP.

      If you don’t hear from me after this you know why.
      WP manages over 60 million blogs, and they have the manpower and resources to ban my humble dirt people blog.

  3. I may not reach as many viewers as some of you all do. The shadow bannling cut into my viewership quite a bit–something you pointed out to me awhile back. So we will see.
