The Coup–Part 2

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I just spent five days in the hospital so I was away from my computer and my normal sources of news were not available to me. I did manage to  pick up Fox News and so was able to keep somewhat  abreast of what went on and what I saw was not good.

I watched all of this impeachment scam and watched the Demoncrats spread bald-faced lies about what Trump said and did. I fail to see how anyone with even half of their mental capacities can remotely believe anything those people say. I spoke to the pastor of a church recently and his comment was “The Democrats are just nuts now.”

I think he was on target. The Demoncrats still have one agenda–the overturning of the results of the 2016 election and the installing of Comrade Hitlery on the throne. Although they will deny that, it is their sole agenda. Hitlery was supposed to win for the Deep State and complete the ruin of this country as we know it.  Sadly for her and them she didn’t get to do that so they have tried to implement several versions of Plan B to be rid of Trump.

The latest version was the one outlined in the Mueller Report, which ended up being a total bust and it became evident that Mueller obviously didn’t even author it. Just goes to show you that even the denizens of the Deep State screw up once in awhile–thanks be to God.

The first part of the Coup to dispense with that upstart Trump failed miserably. So now we arrive at the second part of this Coup–the impeachment of that upstart Trump. If this part of the Deep State’s Coup to overthrow the legitimate president of this country somehow ends up in failure, we may not want to ask what the Deep States next move will be. Three guesses!

One thought to take from all this. Believe nothing the fake news media tells you about this. It will all be lies. Believe nothing any of the Demoncrats tell you about any of this. They and the fake news media are the biggest liars in the country and as of now their total agenda is to keep the public totally in the dark as to what this is really all about–the total destruction of legitimate government in this country.


Trump Committed “Treason”–This from a Council on Foreign Relations Member!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

According to USA Today a former Massachusetts Governor, William Weld, has accused President Trump of treason over the so-called “Ukraine scandal.” I won’t spell out here what I think of Weld’s accusation except that it can be best described by an eight letter word beginning with the letter B, that is not used in polite company.

Needless to say, Comrade Weld plans on running against Trump in this next election, supposedly from the “right.” What a laugh! While Weld is a Republican that doesn’t mean he is challenging Trump from the right. There have been many Republican socialists in this country since the 1850s.

I tried to find out if William Weld was any relation to the abolitionist, Theodore Weld, that married one on the Grimke Sisters, those radical abolitionist females from South Carolina. My search in that area did not turn up anything, but, then, maybe I missed something. If anyone else comes up with anything in that area, please let me know. It would fit perfectly with the world view of Mr. Weld.

According to Arthur Thompson’s latest book In the Shadows of the Deep State, William Weld is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. That fact alone means he has no interest in American sovereignty, which he sees as being subsumed into some sort of One World socialist government, because that is the real agenda of the CFR. That being the case, who, then, is Mr. Weld to be howling about treason? Can you not say about the CFR that here is an organization that, although it would be the last to admit it, is subtly working to  reduce  this country’s sovereignty?

I think their efforts in this area are every bit (and more so) as treasonous as anything Donald Trump may have engaged in. Weld seems to think Trump should be executed for what he has done regarding Ukraine. Interesting that the political left, and some on the “right” seem to have no problem whatever with what Joe Biden and his son did over in Ukraine and how Biden threatened to pull political aid from that country unless they quit investigating his son’s unethical dealings over there. But who needs to be aware of all that? Nothing to see there, folks! Just ask Joe Biden, he’ll tell you! The left has a fetish about jumping on anything Trump does, all the while totally ignoring what those among their own number are doing.

I could just label the leftists as scumbags, but then, that might be a real insult to the legitimate scumbags of the world.

Professor Tom DiLorenzo commented on this situation on the LRC Blog this morning (9/23/19). The title of his brief comments was Bloodthirsty New England Elitist Jackass. A fitting title, I thought.

Professor DiLorenzo observed: “I speak of course of Bill Weld, who says that Donald Trump should be executed for treason. I assume by treason Weld, who has spend most of his adult life as a government employee, means the ‘crime’ of refusing to be ruled by the New England  Yankee elitists like Weld who have ruled over America since 1865. (One of his ancestors was one of the very first students at Harvard in 1650 and another was an officer in Lincoln’s army.”

And DiLorenzo continues: “Council on Foreign Relations member Weld reminds me of his 19th century predecessors who ‘worshipped’ the self-described communist, and murderous martyr John Brown, and who gleefully participated in the mass murder of their fellow citizens in the Southern states by the hundreds of thousands for having the audacity of opposing being plundered by the New England Yankee mercantilist  elitist. Perpetually angry. Spitting mad. Entitled. Calling for the death of those that refuse his rule. A perfect example–almost as perfect as Hillary Clinton–of what Clyde Wilson calls “the Yankee Problem in America.”

And folks, we do have a “Yankee problem” in America–but that does not include lots of good Northern folks who have much the same world view as most Southern folks–they just want to be left alone to live their lives in peace.

But the Yankee/Marxist types amongst us are not about to let that happen. They mean to rule, by any means necessary and they do not care a tinker’s damn about what we want. Their agenda is to promote and push on us what they want. And our agenda must be to stand up and resist them. 

To let them get away with their evil designs without resisting those evil designs is nothing more than being tantamount to complicity.

The Culture Killers

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

They came to destroy Southern culture and history–and you said nothing because you were not a Southerner. Then they came to destroy all American culture and history and you, again, said nothing because, even though you lived here, you were not an American. So let me ask you a question, if you are someone with a legitimate culture and history, what in the world makes you think they won’t get around to coming after your culture and history? Well? Just because they haven’t gotten around to you yet doesn’t mean they ain’t coming! Maybe you need to think about that. If they totally destroy American culture and history then who will be left to help you defend yours?

Don’t all answer at once now!

Many of us have noted the  planned destruction of our culture here in the South. Although many of us have resisted it, not enough have gotten off their beds of ease to assist us. Much too easy just to stay at rest and let the reality shows help us drift off into nirvana or wherever it is they take us.

Has anyone ever stopped to think that the real reason for reality shows and much of the  other drivel on the tube is to keep you from doing anything constructive toward preserving the culture and history God has bequeathed to you? Hadn’t even thought about that? Maybe you should!

Much of what is presented to us by the media, be it the news media or the entertainment media, is meant to destabilize us, to render us useless as anything but “useful idiots” for the leftists and Deep State types to move us around on their New World Order chessboard however they will.

For you Southern folks that this article makes uncomfortable, good! Maybe you will begin to realize you need to do something to make sure your grandchildren even have a history and heritage. If you don’t, mark my words–it will be gone!

For those that do become concerned, why not check out the Sons of Confederate Veterans website, especially a new project by the SCV called Make Dixie Great Again. With a little effort you should be able to find the SCV website and this project herein mentioned. I would urge you to check it out. Find out what you can do to help.

Also check out the website for The Confederate Society of America. They have a blog on their site with some great educational articles–stuff you need to be aware of, stuff you can pass along to your kids to help them get educated. If you think your kids will be educated about your real history and heritage in public school, forget it. In that hostile environment they will be miseducated about their real history and heritage. I know good folks that has happened to. Thankfully, in time, they realized what was happening to their grandchildren and sought sources of accurate history to help turn their grandchildren’s thinking around.

Now they are telling us the Betsy Ross flag and the “Don’t tread on me” flag are “racist.” In other words, anything they don’t like in America’s history is now “racist.” Does it ever occur to you that the people pushing all this “racist” crap are, themselves, the biggest racists of all. They claim all whites are racist. Anyone with a brain realizes that is bovine fertilizer. All that does is prove their racial animosity toward all white folks. So the white-haters are the real racists. Does it also occur to you (it should) that the people pushing and promoting all this racism have an agenda? It’s the old “divide and conquer” strategy. Easier to conquer your adversaries in detail, one at a time than all at once, so if you can get them to hate each other you can pick them off one at a time.

Just because we got Trump into office, don’t for a New York minute, thing the federal government is your friend now. There are people in the government that would deep six Trump in a millisecond if they could.

Let us never forget, the Deep State is committed to our destruction as a people. Our culture, heritage and history, particularly the Christian part of it, is something they want to totally obliterate. They are truly the sons of the Illuminists and the French Revolution. Bush 1 proved that when he let the cat out of the bag with his “New World Order” commentary several years ago.

So the culture killers are at work among us, and some of them occupy very high offices in Washington, and also in many of our state capitols. Don’t you ever wonder why so many Southern governors are in such  a heat to do away with Confederate monuments? Especially when 80% of the people in their states want them left alone? Such governors are part of the culture killing Deep State that wants us all gone and our culture forgotten–so they can then replace it with something the cultural Marxists will approve of.

“Those people” need to be resisted, by every lawful and legal means–before resisting their culture killing schemes is outlawed.

I realize lots of folks just won’t want to be bothered, but the day will come when they will stand before the Lord and He will ask them “what did you do to preserve the culture and heritage I gave you?” And what will their reply be then? Do you really think the Lord will care that you watched 4,000 reality shows but did nothing to pass your heritage on to your children? Something else maybe you need to think about!

The Path to Socialism–America Is On It Right Now!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Donald Trump has been noted on several occasions for saying that America will never be a socialist nation. Sorry, Mr. President, but you are kidding yourself. We are already well on the way to socialism–and if you doubt it all you have to do is look at Congress and the socialists therein ensconced.

There used to be a saying when I was a kid that “The Republicans are for the rich man and the Democrats are for the working man.” That, if the truth be known, was bovine fertilizer back then. Nowadays it would be downright ludicrous. Nowadays the only “working men” the Demoncrats (sorry, typographical error, but it’s not inaccurate), would be “for” are those in the Socialist Worker’s Party!

The Democrats should just rename their party The Socialist Party because that’s really all they are anymore–thorough- going socialists! That’s not to say there are no socialists among the Republicans–there are, and have been since before Lincoln was president. We have dealt with them often over the years and will again as the need arises.

On August 5th of this year The New American magazine carried an excellent article titled: The Democratic Socialists of America–Communism for the New Millennium written by Trevor Loudon.

Mr. Loudon stated, very accurately, that: “While DSA is effectively an umbrella group for nearly every variant of Marxist and anarchist tendency in America, the influence of Italian Communist Party theoretician Antonio Gramsci is most prominent. Gramsci believed that Marx and Lenin got it wrong. Revolution would not come from an uprising of oppressed workers. Instead Gramsci believed that the workers had been brainwashed by ‘capitalism’ and the church to accept the status quo. Therefore society had to be reconditioned into a socialist consciousness. The churches, media, government, education, art, culture, unions and political parties would all have to be captured by communists in order to shape the consciousness of the people in a socialist direction. And that’s what the DSA has tried to accomplish.”

Loudon also noted: “Many DSA comrades held senior positions in mainstream Protestant churches, and, to a lesser degree, the Catholic Church. Among the more prominent Protestant DSA comrades were Stephen Charleston, assistant bishop of Connecticut and president and dean of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Harvey Cox, Hollis Professor of Divinity at Harvard: Gary Dorrien, Reinhold Neibuhr professor of social studies at Union Theological Seminary; Norm Faramelli, lecturer in philosophy, theology, and ethics at the Boston University School of Theology; and more. James Cone, the father of Black Liberation
Theology and colleague of Obama’s Reverend Jeremiah Wright, was very close to DSA, as was Jim Wallis, of Sojourners and formerly President Obama’s faith advisor Wallis has played a major role in moving American Evangelical Christianity to the left in recent years.”

Loudon has told us, again accurately, that “DSA is usually portrayed in the media as a dynamic bunch of idealistic young socialists, fully committed to justice, fairness, and democracy.” That’s utter hogwash and anyone with a brain who still retains the ability to think knows it. Loudon notes, realistically, that  “…DSA  is a Marxist revolutionary organization fully committed to destroying America’s constitutional freedoms and free-enterprise system. The communistic DSA has influence at every level of the Democratic Party (federal and local), organized labor, academia, and religion.” Might be of interest to check out Democrats running for offices in your area and try to determine if any belong to the DSA. If you happen to find any then you will know who not to vote for. You will also know who to expose in your area, whether by letters to the editor or whatever other legitimate means you can.

Mr. Loudon also has a website which I would urge folks to check out. One of his more recent offerings on that site was a list of congresspersons in 2019 that belong to the Democratic Socialists of America. He gives quite a batch of them and also lists their leftist affiliations over the years. All those who will be mentioned from here on out are presently members of Congress.

One of them is the loudmouth, Maxine Waters. Of Comrade Waters he says: “Long history with the Communist Party USA. Also ties to some Communist Workers Party fronts. Has employed staff members from Democratic Socialists of America and League of Revolutionary Struggle.” Then there is Bobby Rush, “Former leader of the Maoist leaning Black Panther Party. Has worked closely with Communist Party USA and Democratic Socialists of America. Has traveled to Cuba twice.” John Lewis, Democrat of Georgia, “Worked closely with the Communist Party USA and Socialist Party USA in the 1960s. In recent years has worked with Democratic Socialists of America members. Tulsi Gabbard (this one surprised me) “Has worked with Democratic Socialists of America members throughout her career. Ties to some Filipino-American ‘former communists’. ” Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Minnesota: “Democratic Socialists of America member.” Ilhan Omar, Democrat of Minnesota: “Supported by Democratic Socialists of America controlled groups Our Revolution and National Nurses United. Reportedly a self-described ‘democratic socialist’.”

Then there is the bombastic know-it-all, who does not really seem to know much of anything, let alone any history, Alexandra Occasion-Cortez, A member of the Democratic Socialists of America.” Then there is the ever-present congressperson, Jerrold Nadler, who reportedly wants to impeach every Republican in the world.  After all, if they are Republicans they must have committed some impeachable offense. Just give ol’ Jerry enough time and he will find something on all of  them! Whether what he finds is true or not makes no difference–we are supposed to believe it because he tells it to us. With his unimpeachable integrity, ol’ Jerry wouldn’t lie to us–would he??? The silence of the response to that question is deafening! Jerry was “..A member of the Democratic Socialists Organizing Committee in the 1970s and was involved with the Democratic Socialists of America in the 80s and 90s.” Ol’ Jerry has been around a long time. He has learned to obfuscate and dissemble with the best of them. He’s still doing it.

There were lots more familiar congressional names on Mr. Loudon’s list but I can’t possibly list all of them here. I would recommend that you go and check out his website.

One thing you should take away from this article is the fact that we have a lot of people in Congress presently that do not have the best interests of this country at heart, but rather just the opposite. You need to find out who they are and who supports them.

Does the CFR Own the News Media, or is it Really the Federal Reserve? And Does It Make Any Difference? Same Game–Same Players!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

In my last article in this series I asked if the Council on Foreign Relations really “owned” the mainstream media in this country. Given that the media so often parrots the CFR line on one world government I thought it was a fair question.

I got a response this morning from one of my faithful readers, who is also a good friend, and he posited the possibility that it is really the Federal Reserve that “owns” the mainstream media. Now I have no use for the Federal Reserve, which is really privately owned and not “federal” at all except in name. And that’s only to fool the public. When he ran for president Ron Paul, one of the few honest people in Washington, tried to get the Federal Reserve audited. Naturally, they could never permit a real audit to take place, anymore than they could afford to let Ron Paul be president. Ron was on target about the Federal Reserve.

However, my friend’s comment got me to looking–and what I found made me posit the question–does it really make any difference whether the Fed or the CFR controls the mainstream media?

The current Chairman of the Federal Reserve is Jerome Powell. Mr. Powell is a member of the CFR. The current Vice Chairman of the Fed is Richard W. Clarida. Mr. Clarida is a member of the CFR.  The most recent chairman, Janet Yellen, is a member of the CFR. And she was also when she was Vice Chairman.

Alan Greenspan, a recent chairman was also a CFR member, as were  Paul Volker, and a couple earlier chairmen, Thomas B. McCabe and William McC Martin Jr. All these sterling individuals were chairmen of the Federal Reserve Board and all were Council on Foreign Relations members.

And then there were the vice chairmen of the Federal Reserve  Board. Names I came across for this position were Stanley Fischer, Donald L. Kohn, Roger W. Ferguson Jr. and Alice M. Rivlin. All these vice chairmen (vice chairpersons) were also members of the Council on Foreign Relations, which is, as I have previously stated, the premier one world government organization in this country, though they might have to share that “laudable” title with the Trilateral Commission and/or the Bilderberg group.

All of the above named outfits have as the main part of their agenda, the merging of the United States into a socialist one world government,  probably governed by the United Nations. Next month is the anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, what some informed folks have called “the house that (Alger) Hiss built.

If you care to check out those names I listed above, the CFR/Federal Reserve folks you can find this info on

Don’t just take my word for it. Check it out yourselves. The question might be asked “so who really does own the news media?” I begin to wonder, with all the cross-organizational memberships between the CFR and the Federal Reserve Board, if it really makes any difference. They will both take us to the same blighted end in the long run.

Does the Council on Foreign Relations “Own” the News Media?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I recently read an article in the July 22nd issue of the New American magazine by William F. Jasper about CFR ties to what passes for the news media in this country today. Such ties are rather extensive and they are not only visible on the left side of the political spectrum, but they go all across the board.

Jasper noted one Richard Harwood, who, back in 1993, wrote an article called Ruling Class Journalists “…in which he confirmed the existence of the Deep State, the unelected, unaccountable permanent government that has usurped control over our country.”

Harwood, in his article, pointed the finger at the CFR, and he corrected observed that it is “the nearest thing we have to a ruling establishment  in the United States.” Jasper tells us that “Harwood, who was himself a CFR member, noted that then president Bill Clinton was a member, as was his secretary of state, the deputy director of state, all five of the under secretaries, several of the assistant secretaries, and the department’s legal advisor. The president’s national security advisor and his deputy are members. The director of Central Intelligence (like all previous directors)  and the chairman of the Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board are members. The secretary of defense, three under secretaries and at least four assistant secretaries are members.” When you look at all this, you get the distinct impression that the Council on Foreign Relations basically owned the Clinton administration. Not that Bill would have minded. With all these CFR types running his administration it left him a little more time for his private peccadillos.

The question then arises–how many other presidential administrations have been in the same boat, with CFR members literally running the whole show?

I recall talking to a man at a meeting I spoke at years ago now. He’d had a friend who used to fly government personages  to various functions around the country and he once told the man I talked to that “You’d be surprised if you really knew who was running the government. It isn’t who you think it is.”

And, on that happy note, let us look at who really “owns” and runs what we euphemistically continue to call the “news media.”

Mr. Jasper noted Harwood’s commentary about CFR people in the news media.  Harwood said: “The executive editor, managing editor and foreign editor of the New York Times are members, along with the executives  of such other large newspapers  as The Wall Street Journal and Los Angeles Times, the weekly news magazines, network television  executives and celebrities–Dan Rather, Tom Brokaw and Jim Lehrer, for example–and various columnists, among them Charles Krauthammer, William Buckley, George Will and Jim Hoagland.” Jasper observed of Harwood that: “His own Washington Post, Harwood confessed (or boasted), was similarly laden with ‘ruling class journalists’ from the CFR.” Do you begin to wonder why you seldom, if ever, get any objective news from such sources? They have a CFR agenda to promote so you will never get anything from them that runs counter to that agenda. Everything you get from them promotes that agenda. But then, you are not supposed to realize that little fact.

According to Jasper “The CFR today lists 319 of its roughly 5,000 members, (six percent)  as ‘members of the media and news services.’  They include, currently or recently, at CNN: Jake Tapper, Fareed Zakaria, Sanjay Gupta, David Gergen, Judy Woodruff, Jeffery Toobin. At NBC: Mika Brzezinski, Joe Scarborough, Richard Engel, Tom Brokaw, Andrea Mitchell. At ABC: George Stephanopoulos, Diane Sawyer, Jonathan Karl, Katie Couric. At CBS: Bob Schieffer, Lesley Stahl, Charlie Rose, William Cohen. At PBS: Margaret Warner, Bill Moyers,  Jonathan Barzilay. At NPR: Tom Gjelten, Dina Temple -Raston…At Fox News Maria Bartiromo.”

This isn’t the entire list, that would take up too much space, but it includes probably most of those people that you have heard of or even watched on television. I can imagine that almost no  one has ever told you that all these people were members of the premier one world government organization in this country–the Council on Foreign Relations. That being the case, what kind of “news” do you think you will get from these people? Will it be truly objective? Or will it promote the cause they believe in, which is displayed by their membership in the CFR?

I know that many in our day have started to disbelieve what they see on the mainstream news. Given the CFR involvement in what you get for news anymore, people have good reason to doubt what is being presented to them as “news.” So keep on doubting it–it’s healthy for the Republic to doubt one world government falsehood–and the people that present them to you.

“Interesting” Personalities Belonged to the Council on Foreign Relations

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Over the decades the premier one world government organization in this country, the Council on Foreign Relations has had some “interesting” personalities as members.

One was Walter Lippmann, the socialist. Another was Dwight Eisenhower, former general and president. Naturally, another has been David Rockefeller. Another well-known one was Alger Hiss, the Soviet spy, who went on to help with the founding of the United Nations in 1945. Still another really “interesting” one, according to The New American magazine for September 16, 2019 was Jeffrey Epstein, who was, according to the New American a member of both the CFR and the Trilateral Commission. Epstein had, so it seems, lots of Deep State connections.

Author R. Cort Kirkwood noted of Epstein  “His relationship with the woman accused of procuring  girls for him and molesting them herself, Ghislane  Maxwell,  who is daughter of the late British publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, an Israeli spy.” He then asks the question “Was Epstein the victim of a Deep State hit?” Kirkwood also observed that Epstein “…was business partners with former Israeli Prime Minister and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, as the Times of Israel disclosed…Epstein met Barak through deceased Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres, another top Israeli connection.” Looks as if Epstein was pretty well connected in Israel. What does this say about some of the former leadership in Israel? Nothing real good I’m afraid.

Then we come across yet another “interesting” personality that was also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations “back in the day” as it were. Some of you all in my generation may be familiar with his name–Alger Hiss. I am sure that anyone who has read Whittaker Chambers’ book Witness is more than familiar with Mr. Hiss. If you haven’t read Chambers’ book it is definitely worth the read. You will learn some history about the 1930s and 40s that the Deep State would rather you never learned about. Alger Hiss, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, was a Soviet spy. It has been reported that Hiss, who also worked in our State Department, and Harold Glasser, were later awarded the Order of the Red Star for their loyalty to the Soviet Union.

As you get into reading a little more about Hiss, you learn that his wife, Priscilla, was a member of the Socialist Party.  The website  had an article on Hiss, updated on September 15, 2019, that stated: ‘Hiss’s fellow cell members, Whittaker Chambers and Nathan Weyl, characterized Hiss as a dedicated communist. This dedication became apparent when he tried to obtain atomic information that was not part of his official duties at State, which was carried out while he was under investigation by the State Department’s security branch. Part if this may have been recklessness, an O.  J. Simpson-like belief of being immune from consequences.  But it may also have been powered in his mind by a desire to push history toward communism.” And why wouldn’t he attempt that? He had to know that FDR was sympathetic toward communism, with his nonsensical commentary about “Uncle Joe” Stalin and he also had to realize that the State Department at that point leaned much further left than it did right.

G. Edward Griffin, in his informative book The Fearful Master–A second look at the United Nations told us, on page 89, that “The Secretary General for the San Francisco Conference was named at Yalta, but only announced last week–lanky, Harvard trained Alger Hiss, one of the State Department’s brighter young men…As secretary general, managing the agenda, he will have a lot to say behind the scenes about who gets the breaks.” The San Francisco conference he is talking about here is the one that founded the United Nations.

You know, the United Nations that had to be founded after World War 2 because the original Illuminist plan, the League of Nations, didn’t quite go over in America after World War 1. That United Nations! I suppose if the League of Nations was part of the Illuminist agenda in 1918, then you would have to logically conclude that the United Nations was little more than the updated version of that in 1945.

Sometime next month, we get to “celebrate” the anniversary of the United Nations. It might be good at some point next  month for us to reflect on just what the United Nations has done, not for, but rather to us in its quest for one world government. And right now, one of their biggest pushes in this country is gun control/confiscation for Americans. Not that they have any real authority to do anything in that area, but that doesn’t mean they won’t try to bamboozle us into thinking they do.

So the CFR has, indeed, had some “interesting” personalities in its ranks over the years, including pedophiles and communist spies–both of which this country would be better off without!


Ever Heard of “The Inquiry”? No? More “Lost” History

by Al Benson Jr.

After our entrance into World War One,  Woodrow Wilson asked his alter-ego, Edward Mandell House, to organize a new group of “experts” to develop postwar solutions to the world’s problems. This new group was called “The Inquiry.”

Never heard of this group? Didn’t see anything about them in your “history” books? No surprise there. This is another one of those little episodes the “historians” have decided we don’t need to be aware of. Don’t feel bad. If I had not read about them in Arthur Thompson’s new book In the Shadows of the Deep State I would not have known about them either, and I have read a bit of history over the years.

Thompson notes in his book, on page 102 that: “With this group, handpicked by House, he and Wilson put together the first draft of Wilson’s famous ‘Fourteen Points’ speech. House wrote in his diary  that they had ‘finished remaking the map of the world’.” Did you get that? Wilson, House, and The Inquiry were into remaking the map of the world in 1917 and thereafter. Who gave them such authority? No one—they just abrogated it unto themselves, or you might say they  usurped it.

We are informed by Thompson that:  “The general secretary of The Inquiry was Walter Lippman. He would become a very famous journalist after serving as a notable writer for the Council on Foreign Relations.” Walter Lippmann was a socialist journalist.  Thompson says “Lippmann and his colleagues Isaiah Bowman, Sidney E. Mezes, and David Hunter Miller, all of them founders of the CFR, wrote out the first draft of the Fourteen Points. Wilson’s Fourteen Points were unveiled to the world in January 1917…Several of the points provided the vision for the future, but some were very dangerous to the future of peace when carried to their logical ends. The most dangerous of them was the idea of a League of Nations. This was to be the culmination of the goals of the Illuminist forces for their New World Order. Every country jumped on board except the U.S., where the Senate refused to ratify the Treaty of Versailles, thus keeping America out of the League of Nations.”

So now, let’s reflect here for a minute.  We had World War One, with the outcome of that war a refusal by the United States to join the League of Nations. With that in mind, do you now wonder why we had World War Two and the embracing of the United Nations by the countries of the world–including this country? It didn’t work on the first go-round in 1918, so we had a replay in 1945 and it worked then, didn’t it? So the Illuminists got their way. They just had to wait a few more years and plan for us to have another “war to end all wars.” Yeah, right!

Thompson notes, on page 125: “While House was instrumental in assembling The Inquiry, his aide in this initiative was Walter Lippmann, who was a member of the Socialist Party. The members of The Inquiry in Paris were very instrumental in the founding of the CFR, and nearly all members of The Inquiry became members of the CFR.” Thompson also told us that, in later years, Dwight Eisenhower was a member of the CFR.

And Thompson informs us that “Only a few members of The Inquiry were taken to Paris for the Peace Conference where they participated in the initial meetings to establish the CFR. These included Charles Homer Haskins, history professor at Harvard and a liberal progressive; Sidney Edward Mezes, president of the City College of New York; James Brown Scott, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Clive Day, professor of economic history at Yale and a member of Skull & Bones; Walter Lippmann, socialist journalist;  Allen Dulles, brother of John Foster Dulles and later head of the CIA; and Paul Warburg. It took some time before those connected with the CFR were publicly candid about their views relative to establishing a world government.” That admission did not come until 1950,when Paul Warburg’s son, James, told a subcommittee of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that “We shall have a world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by conquest or by consent.”

That’s pretty straightforward–agree or we will conquer you and force world government on you.

As you can see, these one world government advocates just love us and have a wonderful plan for our lives–wonderful for them–less than desirable for the rest of us.

Things to note here; you can see how “The Inquiry sort of morphed into the Council on Foreign Relations, the premier One World Government organization–along with the United Nations. Something else worthy of note. Did you notice how many college professors went along as part of The Inquiry to the Paris Peace Talks? Do you think their inclusion in all of this one world stuff just might have had some influence in the direction higher education in this country has taken? That’s something you folks with college aged kids need to give some thought to.

Bolton, McMaster, and the Council on Foreign Relations

Well, Donald Trump finally had the good sense to fire John Bolton, the man who never saw a war he didn’t love as long as he could get US troops into it. If Bolton had his way this country would have been involved in regime change and wars in thirty places around the world and he would have loved every minute of it. A typical neo-con and also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, Trump needed him as a National Security Advisor like he needed another hole in the head. But, then, the man CFR member Bolton replaced, H. R. McMaster, was also a member of the CFR. And the CFR is noted for having a Deep State, Globalist point of view, so people from that organization are the last thing Trump needs in his administration, yet sadly he has some of them there.

One of the possible replacements for Bolton (there are ten possibles listed) is a Steve Biegun, also a CFR member. Another possible replacement is a Brian Hook–who could well be another John Bolton. Trump will really need discernment, and prayers, so that he might pick a replacement that will reflect his nationalist agenda instead of one that will fight him every inch of the way.

Trump needs as little CFR influence in his administration as possible. None would be great, but given the influence of the CFR in previous administrations, I don’t look for that to happen. The CFR has permeated the halls of government for more years than I have been alive (over 80 years now). In its quest for a one world government,  the CFR ain’t about to go away.

In his informative book, In the Shadows of the Deep State, author Art Thompson has dealt extensively with the CFR. He notes, on page 123 that: “After the rejection of the League of Nations by the U.S. Senate on November 19, 1919, it was obvious that the American people had yet to be convinced of joining in  a world government, even with the devastating First World War and the desire for peace. This was already obvious many months before the Senate vote.” In other words, the Senate rejected the one-world oriented League of Nations because it knew there was little support for it from the folks back home. At that point in history most Americans rightfully looked askance at one world government schemes and they wanted no part in them.

What they failed to realize was that they were going to have this world view forced on them whether they wanted it or not.

Art Thompson observed that: “This led members of the Peace Conference in Paris from England and the United States to hold a series of meetings under Col. (Edward Mandell) House’s direction,…at the Majestic Hotel  on May 30, 1919.  The purpose of these meetings was to start the ball rolling toward establishing an organization in Britain and the U.S. to bring influence to bear on their respective governments and institutions to establish a League of Nations-type entity. The organization was to be called the Institute of International Affairs, with offices in New York and London.  This initiative gained little traction at first due to the independent minds of Americans,  so instead it was decided to integrate with a small organization that had been holding a series of discreet meetings called the Council on Foreign Relations. The leader of the CFR was Elihu Root, former Secretary of State under Theodore Roosevelt.”

Root was a lawyer and had Carnegie as one of his clients. He had been a big supporter of the constitutional amendment for the income tax, and he was gung ho for US involvement in World War One, way before the Lusitania incident, which was used to drag us into the First World War. To give you even more of an idea where Mr. Root was coming from,  he was also President  of the Union League Club of New York. Some of you who have read my articles on the War of Northern Aggression may have noted commentary on the Union Leagues in some of them. Art Thompson gives a pretty good brief description of them when he states: “During the Civil War this league was formed to promote nationalism over states rights or federalism. Its original name was the National League.” For those who may not know, this has nothing to do with the baseball league of the same name. But it has everything to do with the advocates of a one world government system trying to foist off on us something we do not want or need.

If you take nothing else from this commentary, remember one thing–The Council on Foreign Relations, headquartered in New York, is bad news for Americans that want to keep their independence. This organization wants to drag this country into being part of a one world socialist government–and it will use its people who insinuate themselves into government positions to do exactly that.

Is The America We Have Known Now Doomed?

by Al Benson Jr.

Some may consider this a rhetorical question, something like “will the sun rise in the East tomorrow?” Maybe it’s a question more folks need to think about.

There was an article on the Zero Hedge website for September 9, 2019 by Charles Hugh Smith that had appeared on the OfTwoMinds  blog and Mr. Smith asked some interesting questions. Mr. Smith asked “How deep has the rot of corruption, fraud, abuse of power, betrayal of the public trust, blatant criminality and insiders protecting the guilty penetrated America’s key public and private institutions? It’s difficult to tell, as the law enforcement and security agencies are themselves hopelessly compromised.”

On one of my better days I would probably think Mr. Smith’s statement noted above was a somewhat mild description of what has  gone on in this country for over 150 years now. However, at my age, I don’t have all that many “better days” anymore, and so I will note another of Smith’s statements that comes even closer to where I think we are presently.  He says “Either we root out every last source of rot by investigating, indicting and jailing every wrong-doer and everyone who conspired to protect the guilty in the Epstein case,  or America will have sealed its final fall.”

That’s a good statement. Does anyone really think anything even remotely approaching that goal is ever really going to happen? Me neither! The Deep State, both Republicans and Demoncrats and all others as well, will do whatever they have  to in order to  protect their own. I have seen articles that mentioned Epstein’s Mossad connections. Does anyone actually think these will ever be investigated? Get real, folks. That ain’t gonna happen–ever!

Smith concludes his article with: “Here are America’s media, law enforcement/security agencies and ‘leadership’ class: they speak no evil, see no evil, and hear no evil, in the misguided belief that their misdirection, self-service and  protection of the guilty will make us buy the narrative that America’s ruling elite and all the core institutions they manage aren’t rotten to the foundations.” The thing is, they actually think they are fooling all of us deplorables.  And they are fooling some–but only those who can’t break themselves away from their reality shows or sports extravaganzas. Our morally rotten elites have to try to make sure that this includes as much of the population as possible so that there won’t  be very many folks asking embarrassing questions. But that isn’t always working anymore. More people are waking up to the fact that the elites have been shafting the public  for longer than most have been alive and more folks are getting to where they don’t like it anymore.

Ever wonder why the big push for more gun control all of a sudden? Or why we are starting to see all these internet articles about “civil war in America”? And if you want to find out where they are really sticking it to us. check out what goes on in those indoctrination centers we call public schools. There are a few public school teachers still around that do try to teach real  history, but they are getting fewer and further between. And if they try too hard, the system will end up weeding them out.

Most of our young folks anymore don’t have the remotest idea of what real American history is. Lots of schools don’t teach US history much past the 6th grade. By the time a student gets to 12th grade,  how much of that 6th grade American history is he or she going to remember? Not an awful lot I’ll wager.

Maybe our private schools, and especially our Christian schools, need to start giving our high school students some good, solid United States history. When we home schooled our kids I gave our daughter, in her last year of high school, Pastor Steve Wilkins’ history course America the first 350 years. It was an excellent history course,  one I’d recommend to anyone. We took a year and a half to finish it. We sat, late at night, and listened to the lecture tapes and our daughter took notes. If she had a question we paused the tape and dealt with it. That course shaped her view of US history, and helped me to learn a lot along the way as well.

So, it seems to me that, if our country is to survive past the present generation, we had better be about making sure our next generation gets some accurate history, as opposed to what is being churned out for them now.
