You May Deface Our Monuments But Southern Culture and Heritage Are Still Here

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

This is the weekend in January that all Southern history and heritage groups celebrate Lee-Jackson Day. All Southern culture/history/heritage groups across the whole country do this. Even in many places in the North. Lee-Jackson Day, named after two of our most well-known Christian/Confederate generals who both had their birthdays in January is being celebrated tonight with dinners and speakers all across this land. The media won’t tell you about this. You are supposed to believe that, after the tearing down of so many of our historical monuments last year, the Southern Heritage cause is almost no more.

I’m sorry to disappoint you folks over on the cultural Marxist Left, but it ain’t happening. You people have been trying to destroy us and our history for 150 years now and we are still here. And, as one old Southerner once said “We ain’t goin’ easy.”

The real history is, bit by bit, starting to come out. When you have a college professor, as in our last article, telling you that, basically, the socialists won the War of Northern Aggression, you have to realize that people are beginning to find out the truth.

I just reviewed a book by Gene Kizer Jr. entitled Slavery Was Not the Cause of the War Between the States.  Lots of Leftist/liberals will poo-poo that and scream about how it is in error. Don’t pay any attention to them. Get the book and read it yourself. You can get it on Amazon.

It’s long past time folks in the South and in other areas started doing the  homework and finding out what the War was really all about and today there is lots of really good stuff out there you can get hold of to find out. Fortunately, you are not bound anymore by the “history” books you had in government school. By the same token, folks wanting to find out what really goes on in this country are not bound anymore to check the same old prostitute news media outlets for their information. The alt.right media and the internet have opened up new avenues to get to the real truth. The monopoly the New York Times, the Washington Post and the regular television nitworks used to have on the news is gone and they are less than happy about it.

The same applies to the Southern/Confederate organizations. You’d be surprised at how many Southern patriots now have a grasp of what goes on in this country and how it affects them, their history, and the organizations they belong to. They are learning, and they are learning what they have to do to combat the mainstream media, which is, in its own way, just a dangerous as Soviet spies were during the Cold War (which never really ended by the way).

So, tonight, there are groups all across the country celebrating Lee-Jackson Day, from the Sons of Confederate Veterans to the Confederate Society of America and a whole bunch of others I know almost nothing about, but they are out there anyway–and by their very presence they are telling those Swamp Creatures on the Left as well as in Washington that they intend to persist in their righteous cause, that no matter how many of their monuments you take down, they will put more up and no matter how badly you try to besmirch their noble history, they are not about to quit resisting what you do and that when they see a chance, they will counterattack.

You can march in the streets and tell your Leftist lies about us all you want. When you all get through, we will still be there and we will still fight you with whatever means the Lord allows us. You cultural Marxists are noted for not quitting–neither will we!

How “History” Professors View the “Civil War”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Many who will read this are already aware of how our current crop of “historians”–so called, view the War of Northern Aggression. However, some who read it may not be all that aware, and so this is written for those unaware ones who still labor under the naive delusion that the War was fought over slavery and that communism did not rear its ugly head in America until at least the 1930s. Well, it did rear its ugly head in the 30s–but it was the 1830s, not the 1930s. By the 1930s communism was already well established here. It’s just that no one bothered to inform the American public.

I spend considerable time on the internet scrounging around for information in those areas that concern me, and one of those areas is the record of communist and socialist infiltration in this country, both in the 19th and 20th centuries.

I recently ran across an article by Andrew Zimmerman, a professor of history at George Washington University. The article was written back in July of 2013 and, at that time, Professor Zimmerman was working on an international history of the American War of Northern Aggression. Of course he didn’t call it that.

He had some interesting commentary in his article that backed up what Donnie Kennedy and I said in our book Lincoln’s Marxists.  The title of his article was The Civil War Was a Victory for Marx and Working-Class Radicals. When I read that I thought “I wonder what some of the students in high school and college history classes would think of Zimmerman’s viewpoint if it were presented to their classes in this manner.” of course, thanks to decades of government school indoctrination that might not bother all of them, but it might bother some–and that “some” might ask embarrassing questions of their “history” teachers. To counteract that possibility the War is usually presented to our students as a noble Northern crusade to eradicate slavery in that mean old, racist, South. The fact that four slave states remained in the Union is seldom touched upon.

Zimmerman couches it in this manner, quite revelatory in its own way.  He says: “For revolutionary socialists, the Civil War was a decisive victory in an even larger struggle between democracy and private property.” The communists are really high on “democracy.” It’s one of their favorite euphemisms, but they don’t mean the same thing by it you have been taught to believe it is.

Professor Roy Colby, in his book A Communese-English Dictionary notes the communist understanding of democracy as: “a collectivistic dictatorship; a totalitarian state.” It’s interesting that the Founding Fathers all had a very dim view of Democracy. They felt it eventually led to tyranny. So what Professor Zimmerman is telling us, whether he even realizes it or not, is that the Civil War was a victory for the totalitarian state against the concept of private property. You folks that have never thought of it in those terms need to start trying to wrap your minds around that concept.

And Zimmerman, again, back up what Donnie Kennedy and I noted in Lincoln’s Marxists when he says: “Marx also followed the progress of the Civil War closely because so many of his fellow exiled European revolutionaries fought in the ranks of the Union Army. Defeated and sent into American exile after a wave of European revolutions in 1848-49, many discovered the struggle against slavery a more hopeful strategy than they have previously pursued. Revolutionary socialists were thus one of the many groups that won the Civil War. For them it was a decisive victory in an even larger struggle between democracy and private property.

How many of you have ever seen the results of the War of Northern Aggression presented in this fashion? Not many I’ll wager. What Zimmerman is telling you here, if you can begin to grasp it, is that the result of the War of Northern Aggression was a victory for communism against the right of private property–and by private property I don’t just mean slaves. Anyone who has read about Sherman’s March through Georgia and South Carolina knows the utter contempt Sherman and his “bummers” had for private property–all private property. They expended lots of time and effort destroying as much as they could in their gentle ministrations to an almost prostrate Confederacy. And they were especially hard on Christian Churches. Does that tell you anything? It should!

So communism, in one form or another, has been alive and well in this country for longer than most people care to think about. Zimmerman is probably not even aware of Donnie’s and my book, but his commentary in this article backs up just about everything we said in it, only in a little less detail.

I don’t know Professor Zimmerman, but from the way he writes I would assume he is a graduate of the University of Political Correctness. And, in his honesty,  he admits to the same things Donnie and I have written about. Seems I have read a passage in Scripture about something being confirmed in the mouths of two or three witnesses.

Smart Cars–Do They Equal Agenda 21?

by Al Benson Jr.

Just yesterday or the day before, I watched a news clip on one of the alt.right sites that was talking about the auto show in Las Vegas, Nevada that is going on now.

Now I am not a mechanical person by any means. This kind of thing does not fascinate me. I can remember old Ford Model T’s (my dad had one during the Second World War because there was not anything being made but military vehicles). I remember double-winger planes. There were still some of them around when I was a kid, so I belong to the “old school” I guess. There were even a handful of characters from the Old Western days still alive when I was a kid. So modern I am not, and I am not sure, seeing some of what I see down the road, that I want to be. It seems that much of what is on the horizon will limit what you can do, where you can go, and regulate what you see and do and how far you travel.

I have written in the past about the United Nations’ Agenda 21 project that, supposedly promotes “sustainability” (population regulation) as the way to go. The UN would like to round up all of us rural or country dwellers and force us into little two-by-twice apartments with about 200 feet of living space in huge mega-cities. That way they would prevent us from doing any traveling, especially out in the country and possibly taking any trips to see anyone away from where we live that they might not approve of. They have been trying to get US cities and towns to buy into this UN concept of what amounts to a giant POW camp for the general population. Some places have seen the light and are opting out of this potential UN gulag. Let’s hope more begin to see where this is going.

Some of what the UN is promoting with Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 (the updated version) seems to be evident at this automotive show in Las Vegas. They have a new vehicle on display–a driverless auto that has no steering wheel or brakes. You don’t drive it–it drives you. It’s like a driverless taxi from what I can tell. If you have to go somewhere you call and this vehicle shows up and takes you to your destination and you pay for that with some kind of credit card of whatever, but apparently you don’t own it, you just pay when you need to use it. You can’t steer it, you can’t stop it, like I said, it drives you. As one who has traveled all over this country over the years and we went where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go, I ain’t sure I like this concept at all.

What is the idea behind this? is this supposed to start to curtail the private ownership of automobiles? It seems a step in that direction, along with the idea that people need to be herded into these UN-sponsored gulags and not allowed to go where they want to because going where they want to supposedly endangers the “sustainability” of the area you live in.

And who owns or controls these driverless cars? Some private company? The government? Whoever it is, they will have a record of where you go at all times, whether to the grocery store or to church, or to visit some friend that may have views the government does not approve of, hence you may be added to a list of “interesting” people to be watched.

I have often wondered just how much of the stuff promoted by the federal government anymore is a brainchild of the UN, with their Tower-of Babel delusions of One World government. We know that the UN is responsible for some programs that have been implanted in the public schools in this country. Do a Google search sometime and type in UNESCO and American Public Schools. You may not like what you find.

Even though Donald Trump is president, there are people in his administration that harbor a decided One World government worldview. That’s where they want to take us, whether we want to go there or not. The UN is NOT our friend–but it wants to be our keeper!

I’m not sure where these driverless cars fit into this, but they could be a major part of the program designed to keep us, not down on the farm, but rather out in the local gulag. Driverless cars is not an idea I would embrace and I hope the driving public takes a good look at this concept and gives it a huge thumbs down!

Federal Fertilizer Thrown at Bundys–Part two

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The judge was forced to admit that the federal prosecutor had really screwed up in regard to the evidence they had “forgotten” to turn over, which just happened to violate the due process of the Bundys. You might be tempted to wonder what was in that evidence. Well, it included–records about the federal surveillance at the Bundy Ranch; records about the presence of government snipers (can anyone say Vicki  Weaver?) and internal affairs reports about misconduct by Bureau of Land Management agents, among other things. There was evidence in six areas they didn’t bother passing along. I just listed three of them here.

According to an article in the Arizona Republic for January 8th “Former acting Nevada U.S. Attorney Steven Myhre, who led the prosecution had urged the judge in a December 29 motion to allow his office to retry the case. Prosecutors said Bundy conspired with militia groups and anti-government protesters to block a lawful round-up of his cattle from public lands…”This is nothing more than yet another full serving of thinly veiled Federal Fertilizer (and a poor grade of it at that) to allow them to keep their jackboot on the Bundys neck.

Recently, a BLM whistleblower, Larry Wooten, I think his name is, blew the whistle on a ton of stuff the BLM had been engaged in that they shouldn’t have been, and as you can see,  concealing evidence that would help the case of those on trial seems to be a problem they have–along with other federal agencies. It might almost lead some folks to question whether they could trust their government or not! And heaven forbid that such a thought would ever occur to the public!

In light of this, the judge was forced to turn the Bundys loose. It  had become quite apparent that the plan was to railroad them.

The judge, Gloria Navarro, (no friend of the Bundys on any count) noted that “One undated BLM report described the Bundys as non-violent,”  And she noted  also, that “since the October 1 discovery deadline, when prosecutors were required to turn over all material evidence to the defense, the prosecutors turned over 3300 pages of additional documents.” So, after their deadline was past, they ended up forking over an additional 3300 pages of evidence, most of which would help the defendants. Sounds like they have been taking lessons from Hillary!

So, while the Feds didn’t win at Bunkerville back in 2014, Cliven Bundy got his cattle back. However, gentle souls that they are, the cultural Marxist Feds never forget a loss and those that handed it to them–and they came back with a vengeance.  What else is new??? But this time, although it took them awhile, it didn’t quite work–and now even more people are beginning to wake up to what the BLM and other rogue federal agencies are doing and more and more people a getting fed up and ticked off with an out-of-control federal government peopled with Deep State Swamp Creatures. And so the War goes on–and make no mistake about it–this IS a spiritual battle.  Politics really has very little to do with it.

If a few more Christians would only wake up and realize that, we might get a little more help.

Federal Fertilizer in the Bundy Ranch Standoff

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Most folks may not remember or be aware of it, but back in April of 2014, I did a series of ten articles on https://revisedhistory.wordpress.com about the Bundy Ranclh situation and the egregious behavior of the Bureau of Land (mis)Management. Most folks outside of the West don’t know much about the Bureau of Land Management, (BLM)–ironically with the same initials as the Black Lives Matter Leftist group. Actually, the two groups could probably be comfortably merged into one and, outside of skin color, hardly anyone would know the difference.

Having spent time in the West over tlhe years, I’ve talked to people who were forced to deal with the BLM. For the sake of charity and brevity, let’s just say that, in the West, the BLM ain’t on too many people’s top ten list of popular organizations.

At any rate, in 2014, when the Bundy Family sought to prevent the BLM from killing and/or stealing their cattle, they were accused of leading an armed rebellion against federal agents. There’s the bovine fertilizer part right there.

We have reached a point in this country  where protecting your lives and property against federal aggression  is labeled “armed rebellion.” The Soviet Union had nothing on the “land of the free.” Whether Mr. Trump will be able to do anything about this federal tyranny remains to be seen, but you have to know the Feds will stop him if they can.

Cliven Bundy and his sons and several others were arrested for the high crime of defending Bundy property, and some of them have now endured four trials either resulting in not guilty verdicts or hung juries, but the Feds would love to keep on trying them in their Kangaroo Kourts  until they eventually found a jury that would convict them of something, anything, so the federal prosecutor could carve another notch on the butt of his Federal pistol.

Thanks to evidence that has surfaced, the judge has had to, reluctantly, dismiss all charges–with prejudice–which means that these poor folks can’t be dragged into another Kangaroo Kourt for yet another go-round with the federal bloodhounds. She was forced to admit that the federal prosecutor had really screwed up in regard to evidence they seem to have forgotten to turn over which violated the due process for the Bundy’s–seems there were about 3300 pages of it. No doubt, a minor federal “oversight.”

To be continued.

 

 

 

 

Judas Bannon, Hillary’s House Fire, and Deep State Deception

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Well, we have rocketed into the new year, with weather cold enough to freeze the ears off a brass monkey and growing paranoia amongst the ranks of the Swamp Dwellers in Sodom on the Potomac.

The news today is that the Justice Department may be reopening the case of Hillary’s missing emails (maybe all 33,000 of them). The denizens of the Deep State don’t necessarily want that kind of information floating around out there–unless they are planning on throwing Hillary under the bus, which case might be determined by how much dirt she has on some of them. And let’s face it, over the years the Clintons have amassed a pretty hefty body count!

So, how to distract the general public, us “deplorables, from exercising  too much curiosity in this area. Well, how about the latest Judas, Steve Bannon, all of a sudden deciding that Trump’s son, Donald Jr., committed treason when he met with that female Russian lawyer for a whole ten minutes back in the summer?  That should do it, right? Bannon’s comments were made in a book whose author has been known to stretch the truth somewhat in some instances. Yet you have to wonder, in this case, because Bannon has yet to deny what this guy wrote. If it were inaccurate all Bannon would have to do is say as much–and he hasn’t. So you have to wonder. Bannon’s protestations about how much he loves the president somehow are not quite enough in this instance. However, Bannon’s treachery here gives the deplorables something to drool over instead of Hillary’s missing emails or the Clinton Foundation

Then there is the situation of the “fire” at the Clintons New York home, and some enquiring minds might be tempted to ask just what was destroyed in that fire. Chris Menahan wrote an article that appeared on The Hill which asked the question “Did Hillary Clinton’s Chappaqua house catch fire because she was burning evidence” or something to that effect? We’ll never know, of course,  but it’s interesting that is happened just now, with all of Hillary’s other problems.

An article on http://www.infowars.com for January 4th noted: “Republicans on key congressional committees  say they have uncovered new irregularities and contradictions inside the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s emails.” Remember, this was the FBI under that paragon of virtue, James Comey, who, it turns out had already written Hillary’s exoneration letter in this shoddy matter before he even interviewed her. I wonder, do you call that prescience or what? The article continued: “For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that some laws were broken when the former Secretary of State and her top aides transmitted classified information through her insecure private email server, lawmakers and investigators told The Hill.”

And, just for good measure, the Deep State denizens are out probably in the dark of night, floating that old canard about how Mr. Trump is reacting to questions about his mental fitness. If you follow this stuff, you will remember that they started pushing this stuff back in March of last year, but it didn’t seem to be going anywhere, and so they sort of laid it aside for possible future use. Well, “back to the future.”

Trump’s White House secretary,  who seems to be a pretty level-headed lady, said of all this: “It’s disgraceful and laughable. If he was unfit, he probably wouldn’t be sitting there, wouldn’t  have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has even seen.” And she went on to note Trump’s accomplishments (which are notable) in his first year in office.

But, you see, don’t you, that we have to have this cacophony of supposed Trump failures thrown in our faces at this time because  all this is supposed to detract from any “news” coverage the prostitute press is forced to put out there dealing with the reopening of the Hillary email case.

In regard to Judas Bannon in this situation, I think someone made him and offer he couldn’t refuse–and he jumped!

Happy New Year–We’re Not Updating Your InfoWars Connection!

by Al Benson Jr.

I just received, on 12/27. a New Year’s gift from Google. They decided not to update my InfoWars connection. All the other pages or email lists that I have listed seem to be getting updated daily except the InfoWars one. My first thought was “how petty!” But then I remembered that Google is one of those sources that had decided that the American public is better off if they only get one side of the story–the Deep State side. They don’t need to be aware of any of the rest of it–all that involves way too much thinking and decision making and our public school “educated” kids are just not up for that anymore, and unfortunately, neither are most of their parents (or grandparents).

I had read somewhere just recently that Google, Facebook, and one other Establishment outfit whose name escapes me at the moment, had all decided that they were going to start censoring what their readers got. Oh they don’t call it “censoring.” They have some fancy title for it that their executives were taught in school when the teacher had nothing better to do. But no matter what fancy handle you hang  on it, it all amounts to trying to keep as much information from their readership as possible in areas that make them queasy.

I don’t think this new omission is particularly aimed at me but it probably a policy aimed at anyone that has InfoWars listed as part of their daily reading. This forces me to go to another server to read the daily InfoWars updates, a minor inconvenience, but one I am willing to undertake, as InfoWars gives me information I seldom get from other sources and usually gives it to me ahead of what other sources do end up with it. So I will switch to the other server and keep up with the daily InfoWars commentary, and while I am there I will also check out updates for all the other pages I check daily, and there are a fair number of them.

Having two blog spots and publishing two newsletters puts me in the position of needing to keep up with current events as well as the historical material I write about. Just checking my email is good for about three hours a day, especially since the major uptick in anti-Confederate hysteria emerged a couple years ago.

So, if Google has decided that I (and many others) don’t need to be kept aware of what InfoWars publishes on a daily basis then all they do is force us onto other venues that are still willing to provide what we need.

The public today is not like the public in Nixon’s day, when all you had to get info on Watergate were the usual suspects–the three main media outlets–all controlled by the same people with the same statist worldview. Today you have the alt.right media and there is enough of that so the Establishment will never be able to shove Pandora back into the box again like they used to.

Today, the information is out there (just like “the truth is out there”) for those willing to look for it and there are sites like InfoWars, The Drudge Report, World Net Daily and a whole host of others putting out documentation that makes the Deep State absolutely cringe–and it’s about time!

So Google and Facebook and other Deep State outfits can withhold all they want, but eventually it’s going to get out there no matter what they do and they might as well get used to that.

Deo Vindice!
