Another Anti-Southern Hit Piece?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member,, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Usually I try to avoid as much of the so-called “news” put out by the Fake News Empire as I can. Most of what comes out of the swamp in Washington these days has the potential of making one physically ill if one is exposed to too much of it.

But there are times when we are forced to look at some of it. I came across an article on https://www.msn.com just last evening, July 15th, that I felt needed to be checked out. The article started out with a picture of one lone man, in what looked like the Capitol Building in Washington, carrying a Confederate flag. My first thought was “well, here is another article that will seek to portray the South and its people as evil and domestic terrorists because most of us didn’t hold our noses and vote for Biden.”

And while I still think that was the main intent, I noted that the article went on to quote from a recent poll by an outfit called https://brightlinewatch.org which was of interest. It noted that 65% of Republicans in the South and 43% of Republicans in the Rocky Mountain states would be in favor of secession. News Week carried the same article https://www.newsweek.com and noted that “A 66% majority of Republicans in 13 Southern states including Texas and Florida are in favor of seceding from the union, according to a poll released Wednesday by Bright Line Watch. Half of all independents in the South agreed, while only 20% of Southern Democrats were on board.” The article also noted that “…43% of Republicans in states near the Rocky Mountains said the same.”

An article on https://mises.org for February 19th of this year noted a similar poll back at that time that said 50% of Republicans in the South supported the idea of secession. If the Mises Institute article is correct, and I have no reason to doubt them, that means Southern Republican support for secession has increased by 15 points since February.

Given the fact that the results of the 2020 election are, shall we say, highly suspect, then the reason for the increase for Southern and Western secession is not hard to figure out. To put it bluntly, most Southern and Western Republicans feel they were screwed in the last election. That’s one reason you have so many states now doing audits. And the fact that you have the Democrats moving heaven and earth to try to prevent those audits tells you something about the results of the last election. As Patrick Henry, another Southerner, once said “I smell a rat.”

Most Southern folks do not feel they will get a fair shake from the current Regime. I know I don’t. The current Regime seems bound and determined to undercut and remove the God-given liberties Americans possess, North, South, East or West. The Democrats, and even some Republicans are okay with that, which means that, at heart, they are potential dictators.

Such people do not hesitate to try to go beyond the law in their quest for power and control.
And if they can succeed in making both the South and West look bad in the bargain, so much the better for them–but not for us. These people need to be lawfully resisted and exposed for the would-be communists that they are.

As far as the secession question goes. I would recommend a short book by Ron Kennedy, published by Scuppernong Press called Red State Red County Secession–Creating a Nation of our Own. It will definitely give you some food for thought on the secession question and on the issue of nullification as well.

The Roots of Nullification

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Nullification does not seem to be a popular subject with many who write about the Constitution. In preparation for this article I checked out several books in my library written by those who had dealt with the Constitution and with the early days of this country. In most cases I found that the term “nullification” was not even included in the index of the book, which means the author did not bother to deal with it.

The one book I did find that dealt with it in a meaningful way was one written by my friend, Dr. Archie P. Jones and published by American Vision http://www.AmericanVision.org This book is The Gateway to Liberty–The Constitutional Power of The Tenth Amendment and this book was published back in 2010. This is an informative book and I would recommend it to those who have an interest in the Tenth Amendment. You will learn from what Archie has to say.

He deals with nullification on pages 65-68 and deals with the Bill of Rights and the need for it on pages 108-110. I will give readers some of his commentary here in the hope that you may be interested in getting the book.

Archie writes: “The principle of nullification is essential to federalism, for without it, the state governments are largely defenseless against power-hungry, unscrupulous central government encroachments and usurpations. Nullification laws are laws enacted by a state legislature declaring unconstitutional ‘federal’ (central government) laws to be without authority in the state and rendering such laws inoperative in that state. Without the right of nullification, a state has only the influence it can exert through its elected representatives in the central government to restrain and oppose central government usurpation of the state’s power and authority.” And let’s be honest here–how many of our elected representatives in Sodom on the Potomac are really concerned with protecting the rights of the folks back home? Not nearly enough! Oh, there is a handful that are, but it is only a handful. The rest are busily trying to sell us out to the New World Order because that is where their true allegiance lies–not to the folks that elected them.

Archie continues: “Nullification is a form of interposition; it is a means by which the state’s civil government officials can protect the lives, persons, property and liberty of the people of their state against unconstitutional laws and actions emanating from the ‘federal’ or central government. By extension, if other states are persuaded to join in enacting and enforcing similar legislation, nullification protects the liberty and wellbeing of the people of the whole United States against unjust and unconstitutional laws promulgated by the central government. As a form of interposition, nullification is more than a right of a state’s civil government: it is a moral duty of a state’s civil government and its officials to protect the moral and constitutional liberty of that state’s people against injustice and illegality emanating from the central government…The most important institution of civil government for protecting our liberty in the complex system of civil government bequeathed to us in our Constitution is the government of each state…Obviously they intended the civil government which most affected the lives of Americans to be the state government, not the national government.”

Unfortunately, it has not worked out that way. Too often the federal government has enacted all manner of laws and executive decrees that do not pass constitutional muster and no one has objected to them–least of all our elected representatives!

Nullification, if enacted by the states will begin to shut down this process of our being forced to follow decrees and mandates that are clearly unconstitutional.

I have to note here also that the Kennedy Brothers, Ron and Donnie, have been advocating nullification in their recent books Dixie Rising–Rules for Rebels, and Be Ye Separate–Bible Belt Revival or Marxist Revolution.

The fact that several states are now seeking to enact nullification laws in response to federal tyranny shows that this is an idea whose time has come and the states had better start enacting nullification laws to protect their residents lest we end up becoming just another Communist dictatorship, ruled by a group with an unquenchable lust for power.

Nullification Efforts in Louisiana

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

It seems as if some folks here in Louisiana are beginning to wake up as to the necessity for nullification efforts here in Louisiana.

An article by Zach Parker appeared in the Ouachita Citizen for April 8th. Zach’s article stated: “Local law enforcement officials say they stand behind state Sen. Jay Morris’ legislation clearing citizens to carry a concealed weapon without a permit, though some expressed concern that firearm safety training still take place. Under Senate Bill 118, all persons over the age of 21 who are not convicted felons can carry a concealed weapon without obtaining a concealed carry permit. Morris, a Republican, characterized the purpose of SB 118 as simply confirming each citizen’s constitutional right to bear arms. Last week, the Tennessee Legislature joined 18 other states that have approved permit-less carry, or constitutional carry laws. ‘It’s time Louisiana joined the other 18 states which have passed constitutional carry,’ said Morris of Monroe. ‘This bill really shouldn’t be necessary as our right to bear arms is already established under the Second Amendment and any limitations on that right should be narrow.'”

Let me say at this point that the Ouachita Citizen is the only newspaper in this area that I will read consistently. Zach Parker is one of the few honest journalists I know and his editor seems to have a good grasp of what goes on in the world. Most other papers in this area I can recommend as high quality birdcage liner but that’s about it.

I am sure the federal overlords of federal overreach in Washington would not approve of Senator Morris’ bill. Let’s hope the state legislature here has the guts to support and pass it. However, there are other nullification efforts now going on here in Louisiana.

An article I received just this morning from JBS Action Alerts noted: “House Bill 118 titled the ‘Louisiana Firearm Protection Act is sponsored by Representative Larry Frieman and seven other representatives. If passed, it would be the strongest and most comprehensive gun control nullification bill in the country. HB118 gives a list of policies which might be contained in ‘federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations that violate the U.S. Constitutions Second Amendment and Article 1 Section 11 of the Louisiana Constitution…Importantly, HB 118 nullifies both past and future unconstitutional firearms restrictions. Additionally, while the bill does not name any specific federal laws, the 1934 National Firearms Act and the 1968 Gun Control Act would effectively be included among the laws nullified.” This should be a bill that every sincere person in Louisiana who is not a radical gun control-oriented leftist could support.

Let us hope and pray that some “suits from Washington” do not show up in Baton Rouge with money or promises in an attempt to subvert or weaken this legislation. Such would not surprise me. We need to lean on our legislators here to get them to support these bills. We need to make it clear to them that if they vote to diminish or do away with our Second Amendment rights then they will be gone in the next election.

Thankfully, nullification efforts are under way here in Louisiana. If nullification efforts do not proceed across this country we will end up living is what amounts to a federal dictatorship sponsored by the Deep State and the creatures that thrive in the Washington Swamp.

Second Amendment Nullification

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

It would seem that the leadership in several states is beginning to recognize the fact that state legislatures have the duty to nullify unconstitutional federal overreach regulations in their respective states. All I can say is that, after seeing the direction the Harris/Biden administration is headed in, it is about time.

An article by Jack Phillips in the April 7th issue of the Epoch Times has noted: “Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation on April 6 that would prohibit police and sheriffs in the state from enforcing new federal gun laws that may violate the Constitution’s Second Amendment. Proponents of the bill have argued that it would ensure the rights of gun owners are protected from what they have described as potential overreach by the federal government…” Those who are critical of the bill claim it will hamper cooperation between state and federal officials. Seeing that the feds go into various states and try to force their edicts on state governments, one might question the need for such “cooperation.”

Gun control zealots tried to pressure the governor into vetoing this measure. I suppose their next attempt to take away people’s Second Amendment rights in Arizona will be to issue some sort of recall petition to remove the governor.

In similar legislation, this time in Tennessee, Governor Bill Lee has signed a “constitutional carry bill, also called a “permitless carry bill” into law and the law will go into effect on July 1st. Governor Lee said “I signed constitutional carry today because it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Thank you members of the General Assembly and NRA for helping get this done.”

And, an article on the New American website just recently noted that “The Governor of Iowa said “Today I signed legislation that protects the 2nd Amendment rights of Iowa’s law-abiding citizens. We will never be able to outlaw or prevent every singled bad actor from getting a gun, but what we can do is to ensure (that) law-abiding citizens have full access to their constitutional rights.” Thus Iowa becomes the 19th state to push back against the Harris/Biden Regimes agenda to disarm honest Americans. Harris/Biden are not really concerned about the criminals among us–they just want to take our guns. that way we can’t defend ourselves from Black Lives Matter or Antifa. Are you beginning to get the picture yet???

There are now 19 states that allow their citizens to exercise the rights guaranteed to them by the Second amendment without asking permission from their state governments first Mark Olivia the director of public affairs at the National Shooting Sports Foundation has said: “Your permit is your Second Amendment right. The idea of having to get a permit to be able to exercise your Second Amendment right t keep and bear arms is antithetical to what your rights are as an American at birth.”

The New American article observes that “In Iowa ,legislators and the governor are posing the solution to the problem of governmental overreach from Washington: passing a law that directly and emphatically opposes the federal tyranny when it comes to gun control.

Of the 19 states that are nullifying federal gun control overreach, I notice that Louisiana is not among them. The Democrat governor here will probably not try to do anything that Biden/Harris do not want him to do. Therefore, it will be up to the state legislature here to resoundingly pass nullification bills that will be aimed at federal overreach and their efforts will have to be strong enough to over-ride his vetoes because he will probably try to veto anything Harris/Biden doesn’t want.

Nullification is an idea whose time has arrived in an era when federal overreach has become an epidemic and the Second Amendment is not the only area that needs to be addressed.

Nullification is Spreading

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Recently I did an article on nullification in Arkansas. As things in this country continue to deteriorate under the Harris/Biden Regime more states are beginning to deal with the process of nullification as noted in the Constitution.

Ron Kennedy, in his informative book Be Ye Separate–Bible Belt Revival Or Marxist Revolution has noted, on pages 62-63 that: “The founding fathers crafted a federal system for a Constitutionally limited Republic of Sovereign States. They understood that no word, sentence, clause, or amendment in the Constitution was self-enforcing. They understood that a free government required moral people. They also understood that, under their system of federalism, the Sovereign States would be able to enforce the Constitutional limitations on the federal government.” This is what nullification was all about–preventing the federal government from going beyond the bounds of what the Constitution allowed. This is something the Feds dearly love to do–make up laws as they go along that will allow them to implement their neo-Marxist agendas. Nullification properly combats this and more states seem to finally be waking up to this.

In Texas, four state legislators have introduced HB1215 (the Texas State Sovereignty Act). If passed this will create in Texas the situation that will enable that state to “review federal actions that challenge the sovereignty of the state and the people for the purpose of determining if the federal action is unconstitutional.” Should any federal act fall into that category the legislators in Texas will then seek nullification from the state’s governor and a majority in both houses of the state government.

The legislature in South Dakota is also considering a bill similar to the one in Texas. And, in Wyoming there is a “Second Amendment Preservation Act” that should nullify federal gun control edicts. Similar nullification bills to protect the Second Amendment have been proposed in Alabama, Missouri, Ohio, and West Virginia. Regarding the Second Amendment, nullification measures have already been enacted in Alaska, Idaho, and Kansas.

And it has been reported that similar proposals are being debated and discussed in the legislatures of Arizona, Arkansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee. It seems as if many states in the South and West are beginning to grasp the importance of nullification in their honest desire to combat federal overreach. I wonder, at this point, where is Louisiana with its Democratic governor who seems more than willing to go along with any Democratic federal overreach proposed by the current Regime? The state legislature here in Louisiana needs to start looking at the nullification process for this state. So far they have avoided this issue which they should begin to address.

If continued federal overreach is allowed we will, in effect, become just another Marxist dictatorship. That would greatly please the Deep State in Washington but it will be the death knell for our God-given liberties everywhere else. People should start contacting their state legislators and letting them know they want them to start implementing the nullification process in their states.

Nullification in Arkansas

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Just read an article on The Epoch Times web site about the state senate in Arkansas passing a bill banning the enforcement of federal gun control laws.

The article noted that: “The state senate voted this week to block federal law enforcement officials enforcing certain gun laws and regulations, sending the bill to the state House in the midst of congressional gun-control proposals. the Senate voted 28- 7 to approve the measure, which will then be sent to the House. Arkansas’ Legislature is overwhelmingly Republican…the measure will prohibit any law enforcement agencies in Arkansas from cooperating with federal officials to enforce federal gun laws that go in conflict with the rights provided in the Arkansas Constitution, according to Arkansas Online. Some state lawmakers expressed a worry that President Joe Biden would ramp up gun-control measures.”

It’s no secret that Biden and his Marxist vice-president plan to gut the Second Amendment immediately if not sooner, whichever they can get away with. And you can take it to the bank that if the Second Amendment goes by the boards then the other nine original amendments in the Bill of Rights won’t be far behind it. That’s the federal Deep State plan. Trump protected the Second Amendment. Harris/Biden plan to do away with it. Oh, they will claim otherwise, but anyone with a brain knows where they are headed. Once they gut the Second Amendment and have the guns who is to prevent them from doing whatever they darn well please?

What the state of Arkansas is doing with this bill in nullifying unconstitutional federal actions. This is something more and more states need to start doing. Nullification in this country is something that has a long history.

Ron Kennedy, in his new informative little book Be Ye Separate–Bible Belt Revival or Marxist Revolution comments on nullification. On page 29 he observes: “We the people must again reclaim the right to control our state and local communities. We can use that control to nullify anti-Christian acts of the federal government and its bureaucratic Deep State–just like the people of Wisconsin who boldly nullified the Constitutional requirements to return runaway slaves in 1859 As will be explained, America’s founding fathers protected this ability (state nullification etc.) when they crafted the original Constitution…The idea of states having power to nullify laws in the United States goes back to colonial days.” More on Ron’s new book (Xulon Press http://www.xulonpress.com) in future articles.

There is more about state nullification in Ron Kennedy’s book Dixie Rising–Rules for Rebels (Shotwell Publishing, P O Box 2592, Columbia, South Carolina 29202) Ron tells us, on page 48, that “The bottom line is simple: Without real states’ rights, inclusive of the rights of state nullification and secession, we the people are helpless when facing an all-powerful tyrannical Federal Empire. But by passing our proposed constitutional amendment acknowledging the rights of nullification and secession, we the people at the local level will have the power to control ‘our’ federal government.” You need to read Dixie Rising.

State nullification is an idea whose time has come–or rather has come back. Other states are working at passing nullification laws in certain areas, notably Texas and a couple other Western states.

An Epiphany On January 6th

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

The way the term Epiphany is usually used in Christian circles on January 6th each year refers to the manifestation of the Lord Jesus to the gentiles–in this case the Wise Men as outlined in the Biblical narrative. The Lord Jesus was manifested, or revealed, to the Wise Men in such a way that they realized His Divinity and who He really was.

This year on January 6th we will witness yet another epiphany to go along with the revealing of the Lord Jesus. This second epiphany, a political one, will reveal just what our Congress is going to do in regard to the massive voter fraud in this recent election where Mr. Trump, and by extension, the American people, had this last presidential election stolen from them by a gaggle of leftists, Democrats, Republicans, Marxists, the news media and certain big tech outfits that would make Karl Marx proud. After all, Marx and those people mentioned herein all have or had the same master–one who is evil incarnate.

Several senators and congress people do plan to protest what was an illegal election in several states. We will see where that goes on the 6th.

At this point my own personal opinion is that the powers that be in both our political parties really want Harris/Biden in the White House instead of having to deal with another four years of Donald Trump. Mr. Trump really crimps their leftist style and after four years of fighting against those people he is finally beginning to figure out where the bodies are buried and they don’t want him out there digging them up now so they will move heaven and earth to make sure Harris/Biden (I list Harris first because everyone realizes that she will be the real power in the White House, not Biden) occupy the White House no matter what. They are willing to sell the country out to ensure that. They don’t care about this country. Regardless of political party they are globalists and so they have no country–at least none this side of hell.

So I expect to see this Wednesday a monumental attempt by the left to shoot down, in Congress, any real attempt to deal with the faulty election results and to rush to certify Harris/Biden as the official water carriers for this left in this country and for the Chinese Communists who probably had more to do with our election results than we have been told about by our absent minded mainstream media.

It will be interesting to see how many of our congress critters strive to tap dance around this issue as they labor to deep six any effort to get to the bottom of the massive election fraud we suffered on November 3rd. Keep an eye on their political gyrations as they seek to legitimize the vote fraud perpetrated on the American electorate.

What they do to preserve the results of this fraudulent election may end up being a real epiphany to many naive voters who, up to now, have trusted their elected representatives in Washington. You may end up being treated to a real manifestation of their devotion to the cause of leftism in this country and the world. Just remember who their master really is and you will have no trouble understanding why they do what they do.

What About Another Country?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Well, it looks like the Republican/Democratic deep state establishment plans to steal the recent election from Donald Trump. Many Republicans are looking to stab him in the back and it would seem that his open detractors–from the Vice President and the Supreme Court on down have decided they favor a Harris/Biden presidency over another term for Trump. Mr. Trump has millions of friends among ordinary folks but the ruling elites want him gone and to that end they will deny him any chance to present clear evidence of massive vote fraud–even though such exists. The courts will refuse even to consider it, claiming it doesn’t exist. It does exist and they are liars, along with the mainstream media, but they control the levers of power so Trump and, by extension, the American electorate, will end up being screwed yet one more time. We should be used to this by now.

Seeing the game will always be played this way–is anyone out there in favor of secession?

I read an interesting article by Thomas Luongo for December 24, 2020 on https://www.lewrockwell.com and Mr. Luongo’s comments were worth noting. He said, in part, “So, for me, the idea of the U.S. breaking up into its component parts has been a constant companion most of the adult life. And, as a libertarian, I always think in terms of secession first, rather than revolution. It sits on my shoulder whispering in my ear the truth of what’s in front of us. We’ve reached a very important moment in world history. It is that moment where the promises of classical liberalism are failing in the face of a creeping totalitarian nightmare…secession, not revolution, is always the better option rather than the pre-packaged violent one which the oligarchs always seem to prepare for us.” He has a point and he knows his history too. He talks about the mythology that surrounds the War of Northern Aggression. He observes: “The mythology states this was the war we had to fight to prevent slavery’s survival into the 20th century. But, was it that? Slavery may have been a dividing line to stoke the passions but it wasn’t the big factor driving the states apart, the Tariff of Abomination was. Again, if we’re being honest with ourselves wasn’t Lincoln’s war where the ideals of the American Revolution–a compact between the sovereign states–were finally betrayed? Aren’t we reaping the whirlwind of that war today with a Supreme Court who believes it has the power to ignore interstate grievances because none of the justices, even Thomas and Alito, believe in a compact of equals today? Remember. the South was more than willing to leave in peace. And any reasons Lincoln had for fighting the war over the seizure of Federal property, i.e. the proximate cause for the events at Fort Sumter, could have been worked out, again, equitably as gentlemen, rather than through the butchering of 600,000 Americans over four years.” If I recall correctly, the South sent a delegation to Washington to try to do just that, but Mr. Lincoln wasn’t having any of that!

And he asks another interesting question–one I have asked before. “What if all the conservatives mourning the Constitution today thanks to a feckless Supreme Court and treasonous Congress have it all wrong? What if the America they mourn the death of today died in 1865, not 2020?” God questions, especially for those that don’t want to touch them with a ten foot pole or even admit they exist.

I have seen several other articles dealing with secession in recent weeks–a “peaceful secession” if possible. This is something to be considered for a new year especially since the powers that be, our ruling elites, have decided that no way is Mr. Trump to be allowed to make his case in the courts–or anywhere else they can censor him out of.

I will quote briefly from an article on https://www.armstrongeconomics.com that says: “I have gotten a number of emails asking what can we do? It looks like there will be a 3rd party forming. We need to nurture that because both the Democrats and the Republicans are all about maintaining political control over the people.” He raises an interesting point here. But let me ask a question. Instead of a third party, what about a second country–a confederated states of America? The deep state and its henchmen control the country we have now regardless of Mr. Trumps gallant efforts to reverse that situation. With Harris/Biden in the White House they will work to consolidate that control over our lives–creating, in effect, a new class of slaves–honest patriotic Americans, especially if they are Christians.

That fact alone should give us cause to reconsider the secession option because, whether we like it or not, that question ain’t going away. In light of where we are it needs to be considered.

The Elder Sibling Is Watching You

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Around thirty years ago, a man who followed the political scene in this country told me that the Central Intelligence Agency owned or controlled the National Enquirer newspaper. Somehow, the thought didn’t surprise me. Now I can’t say if he was accurate  or not. At that time I had no way of checking that out. However, other things he told me did pan out  as he said. So let’s just leave it at that.

Recently, I watched a video of a speech by Jerome Corsi. Many of you probably know who Mr. Corsi is. He used to work for World Net Daily and he has written several books over the years. At present, he is a correspondent for http://www.infowars.com and he has a new book out called Killing the Deep State–the Fight to Save President Trump. Check it  out. Mr. Corsi is a good journalist and researcher.

Anyway, in this video I watched, Mr. Corsi mentioned Facebook, Twitter, Google, and one other entity (I’m not sure if it was Amazon or not) and he said that these had all been, in their origins, creatures of the CIA.  I think his speech was on You Tube, so if it hasn’t been removed by now you can probably find it with a little “huntin’ and peckin.” I usually agree with most of what  Mr. Corsi says because he is such a good researcher, with lots of good  sources.

I wouldn’t have thought all that much about his speech except, that on the same day I heard it, I chanced  to read an  article by Luis P. Almeida that had originally been on http://www.LewRockwell.com and had been picked up by https://flyoverpress.wordpress.com  I don’t know much about  Mr. Almeida, but parts of his article caught my attention after having listened to Mr. Corsi’s speech.

Mr. Almeida wrote: “…but I was aware of the privacy issue since Sun Microsystem’s Scott McNealy warned us about it way back in 1999. I have been aware for years that Facebook was  funded by the CIA’s venture capital arm called In-Q-Tel and that the NSA had tapped into our telecommunications network and was sucking up all voice and date traffic for analysis. In the 80s Brzezinski stated in his book, that soon the government would have a database containing everything there is to know about each and every one of us. I did not need a congressional hearing to make me aware that the day he spoke of had long arrived.” And incidentally,  the Brzezinski he is referring to, a longtime member of the Trilateral Commission, who passed away recently, was the father of Mika Brzezinski who is a “news” anchor for CNN.

So what Mr Almeida is telling  us is that Facebook is basically in the business of gathering any and  all info they can on all of us. When confronted with this their usual reply is that this is strictly for “commercial” purposes–advertising, etc. That’s a pile of cow chips, to use a polite term. These people are gathering intelligence on all Americans of all ages that use social media. They want to make sure they have the goods on any and all Americans who might, someday, become “persons of interest” to the feds. Whether this is warranted or not makes not an iota of  difference. They do it because they can!

And if you should be naive enough to ask about your First, Fourth, and Sixth Amendment rights I would have to reply–“Surely you jest!”

Can You Begin To See Where “Civil Rights” Is Taking Us?

by Al Benson Jr.

Decades ago now we were told by some in government and in the “news”media that we needed civil rights for blacks to end segregation in the South and so that blacks could begin to be able to vote. So, after multitudinous marches, demonstrations, sit-ins and other media-driven events blacks finally achieved some of those “civil rights” everyone was told they needed. If, at this point, you are going to ask me if I have a problem sitting next to a black family in a restaurant, I don’t. I have no problem with folks all being treated equally. Problem is, that some folks have gotten to the point where they feel they are entitled to be treated more equally than the rest of us, and, as usual, the ruling Marxist Regime in Washington totally agrees with them.

In fact, let’s be rather blunt.  When it comes to equal treatment in this Kountry anymore, white Southern Christians are at the absolute bottom of the totem pole and everyone else is supposed to denigrate them and their accomplishments with equal abandon as history is erased, reconstituted, and historical memory  is obliterated, to be replaced with–well, you don’t want to know with what. That will spoil your supper.

Several months ago, per request, I did an article that appeared in The Free Magnolia, a newspaper put out by the League of the South. The title of the article was The Marxist Side of Civil Rights. For those who have bothered to do any research on the “Civil Rights Movement” they will realize that it had (and has) a Marxist side. The “news” media just doesn’t bother to tell you about that because they and their bosses feel their agenda is better off if you are not aware of that. If you want some good background on this see if you can find Alan Stang’s old book It’s Very Simple–The True Story of Civil Rights.  should be able to locate it on Amazon.com I found it and there are old, used copies for sale. Mr. Stang was a truly investigative researcher and reporter and he researched where media “angels” had been told never to tread.

In our day we have finally reached the point (probably predetermined years ago) where the cultural Marxists have so absorbed and controlled the Civil Rights Movement that it is little more than a living memorial to their efforts to change our society from its Christian base to one that could only be loved by the Sodomite and Transsexual Movements. In fact the Sodomite, Lesbian and Transgender Movements have become the new civil rights! You have to start beginning to realize  that these people now possess all the “civil rights”  and you don’t really have any anymore. What you now have is the “right” to give in to their demands or face government prosecution (persecution) and that’s the only “right” you have left. If that’s too rich for you, then just take a good look at what’s going on around you. People are losing their jobs and their businesses because they refuse to cater to the whims of these people. So, tell me, where are the “civil rights” of those that do not, for Scriptural reasons, choose to go along with all of this? Such rights no longer exist. Somehow, the vaunted Constitution is not protecting us from all this. But, then, does that really surprise you? In spite of all the “conservative” bloviation Congress spreads out there, they, somehow, always manage to go along with whatever perversion the current administration comes up with.

I recently read an article by a New York Times columnist which said that “Christian churches ‘must be made’ to affirm homosexuality.” So who will be entrusted with that sacred mission? Exactly who is slated to make  Christian churches “affirm homosexuality”? Will the federal government do that?  And if so, exactly where are the “civil rights” of those in those churches that refuse to go along with what Scripture clearly condemns? Exactly who is going to force us? I’d like a detailed answer to this one. The Times article noted: “Bruni quoted furniture tycoon Mitchell Gold, who has used millions to found a liberal pressure group Faith in America, writing that Gold believes Christian churches ‘must be made’ to take homosexuality off the sin list.” Such statements from Gold lead me to inquire just where Mr. Gold is regarding religion.

In all honesty, you know who is going to pursue this agenda–the federal government, and they will pressure their minions in many state capitols to push the same agenda.  They will probably start with “suggestions” to the churches about this in their respective areas, then maybe a little subtle pressure, and finally, if some churches refuse to play this game the feds will seek to remove their 501c3 non-tax status until such time as they decide to comply with the federal program. For those that refuse flat out to do this, well, there is always prison–for violating the “civil rights” of the sexual perversion crowd–because, after all, they have “civil rights” and you don’t! Get used to it, folks, this IS the future–unless a goodly number of Christians and churches wake up and resist–and with what I have seen in churches in the last four decades, I really don’t expect that to happen. Oh, some will resist, to their credit, but not enough, and either jail of the FEMA Camp awaits those that do resist.

This is where the “Civil Rights Movement” has taken you folks. Do you like it? While you’ve been sitting in your churches on Sunday listen to your preacher tell you how close the “rapture” is, that it could happen any minute, or that “revival is just around the corner” (I heard that one thirty years ago, and it seems like it’s a long way to the corner) the “Civil Rights” crowd has been slipping the noose around your necks and you haven’t started to feel it until just recently.  They plan to make sure you feel it more before it’s all over.

It seems like it’s about time for a thorough re-evaluation of the “Civil Rights Movement” and just where it has been taking us.
