If You Can’t Trust the Government…

A poll came out just recently from Monmouth University in New Jersey. It showed that Americans are more aware of the Deep State and its evil machinations  than the Deep State could wish for.

According to an article on Zero Hedge for  March 19th: “Just over half of the public is either very worried (23%) or somewhat worried (30%) about the U.S. government  monitoring their activities and invading their privacy. There are no significant partisan differences—.Fully 8-in-10 believe that the U.S. government currently monitors or spies on the activities of American citizens, including a majority (53%) who say this activity is widespread and another 29% who say such monitoring happens but is not widespread. Just 14% say this monitoring does not happen at all. There are no substantial partisan differences in these results.”

And let us not kid ourselves, the Denizens of the Deep State, elected and un-elected, fervently wish that we were all like that 14% who never got out of the starting gate. That’s why they are so ticked off that Hillary wasn’t able to steal the election in 2016. If she had become president you all know as well as I do that nothing they have done, no matter how horrific, would ever have been revealed. Under Queen Hillary the shafting of America would have continued apace and we would have no idea whatever as to what was being done to us. Hillary is the female version of King Barack the First (and hopefully the last).

An interesting article appeared on http://www.bizpacreview.com  for March 20th, written by Nick Givas. He noted that “MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ was in panic mode Tuesday, after a Monmouth poll showed three out of four Americans believe in the existence of  ‘deep state.’…When the poll described the ‘deep state’ as a group of un-elected nongovernmental officials, 75% of the respondents  said they believe there is a group of power players pulling the strings.” Boy, how right they are! If only they realized the extent of it–and it includes elected officials as well as non-elected ones.

But they don’t want the public even to consider such. That’s one reason we got all this “Trump colluding with the Russians” pig slop thrown at us. It’s a great diversion. According to Givas “Washington Bureau chief for USA Today Susan Page, said the poll numbers are a result of attacks against the government and believes people should trust the government to investigate itself.” Read that last statement again before you fall to the floor and laugh your backside off! She’s got to be kidding, right? The government investigate itself??? Come on lady, you can’t be that naive can you? Or do you just hope the rest of us are? Trusting the government to investigate itself is akin to handing the keys of the chicken house over to Brer Fox because he’s already told you, through his press agent, that he’d protect all those chickens and eggs. After all, why shouldn’t you trust him. You have his word. If you don’t trust his word you must be one of those deplorables or “bitter clingers”, one of those ignorant people who will never realize how good a Marxist government really can be for all of us (especially those at the top).

For all those folks that are now beginning to grasp the fact that there is a Deep State, peopled by both non-elected and elected denizens, whose job it is to turn this country into a third rate banana republic that will easily fit into its slot in a One World Government, I would strongly encourage you to begin to do some homework about the Deep State and who runs it and what their agenda for you and your children really is. Because they have one, whether you like it or not!

Start by going back a few years and checking out a book by an ex-FBI agent Dan Smoot, published way back in 1964,  called The Invisible Government. I believe you can find it on the internet (if they haven’t removed it for your own good).  You can probably read it there for nothing. Won’t cost you a thin dime! From there you might want to try None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen, published in 1976 I think. I think that’s on the internet also. From that you can skip to Gary Allen’s next book The Rockefeller File. That one might also be on the internet, but check Amazon if you can’t find it there. It will tell you how much the Rockefellers had to do with education in this country, and how that will affect your children and their children. Then there is one by Cleon Skousen called The Naked Capitalist.  I’m not sure if that one is on the internet, but check Amazon if you don’t find it there. Most of this stuff you can read via the internet for nothing. All it will cost you is a little time and concentration–and none of it is difficult reading. It’s all written for ordinary folks, otherwise I couldn’t grasp it!

Then, crank up your search engines and check out the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderburg Group. There is quite a bit out there about these groups and some about who is, and who has been, in them. Most folks don’t realize that H. R. McMaster, one of Trump’s advisors, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. If you can start to work your way through some of this it will be a great start in learning about what the Deep State does and how they do it–and have been doing it for at least a century! You won’t like a lot of what you find. It will make you made like it did me, but you really need to be aware of it.

Reading some of this will begin to show you how the Deep State operates and will even give you some thoughts about what you can start to do about it. I realize that lots who read this won’t do anything about it, but I pass this along for the really concerned minority who has figured out that something is radically wrong with this country and want to do something about it. This material mentioned above, and prayer to God for wisdom and discernment is where you begin. And you can’t just start and leave the prayer part off, because the Lord is the one that ultimately gives the wisdom and discernment as to what you need to do and how you need to do it.


As if to corroborate what I wrote above on the Deep State, Rand Paul has made comments that appeared on the Zero Hedge site on 3/22/18 in reference to the Deep State. Senator Paul appeared on the Laura Ingraham Show and said: “Absolutely, there is a Deep State. because the deep state is the intelligence agencies that do not have oversight.” In other words, there is no congressional oversight of the agencies–they do what they darn well please. Senator Paul continued:”Only eight people in congress know what they’re doing, and traditionally, those eight people have been a rubber stamp to let the intelligence communities do whatever they want. There is no skeptic among the eight people that are supposedly overseeing the intelligence community.” You can’t say it much plainer than that! The mere handful in Congress that do know what they are doing are just rubber stamps for their “activities.” They are a law unto themselves. They do what they want because they can!

Paul noted that he felt “Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and others used intelligence collected ‘without any judicial warrants’ for political purposes, in addition to ‘trying to bring Trump down’.”

I have to admit, I can’t disagree with Senator Paul. If any of you all have listened to John Brennan since he left office, you almost get the feeling that he is still running the CIA, or at the very least, thinks he ought to be. Brennan is an Obama devotee who converted to Islam somewhere along the line and talks like he thinks he’s running the  government. He even told Trump at one point to “keep your mouth shut.” He comes across as a third rate Islamic political thug!

He recently referred to Mr. Trump as a “disgraced demagogue” and told him he would not destroy America. Problem is, the “America” that John Brennan wants to preserve is one that needs to be destroyed–it is the American version of the Gulag!

Wonder if we should write our Congress critters and tell them we’d like to see more congressional oversight of the CIA and the NSA besides the rubber stamp characters that automatically support these groups presently. It couldn’t do any harm.



Are Free Speech and the First Amendment Under Attack? (Is the grass green?)

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Free speech has always been under attack throughout history, and mostly the attackers have been those in power who wanted to make sure they stayed in power. Regardless of what those who promote censorship and speech restrictions say, this is not about the “public good.” It is usually about hiding the truth, and the censors are usually those who claim that the public, for their “own good” just doesn’t need to know about this scandal or that. What this really means is that the censors already have done, or are in the process of doing something shady (of financial benefit to themselves) and they don’t want you to be aware of that. Does the Uranium One scandal come to mind here? So the doers of these evil deeds either try to sugarcoat them or just outright lie about them, or, if confronted, their friends in the “Fake News” media try to hide it “on page 46 under the obituaries” where almost no one will ever see it.

An article on http://www.foxnews.com for January 25, 2018 observed: “Free speech is under attack on college campuses across the country. The problem is not limited to a few colleges banning radical speakers to avoid a riot. Universities large and small, public and private,  are restricting students’ and professors’ speech or enabling others to silence speech with which they disagree. These restrictions take a variety of forms. For example,  free speech codes at many colleges ban speech that is ‘offensive,’ a subjective standard that allows college administrators to arbitrarily ban speech they find disagreeable.” In other words, under the guise of “free speech” they really get to say who says what and who doesn’t get to say anything! Although this is current, it is hardly a new problem. I have seen colleges in the East, years ago, that had no problem whatever with having an identified Communist speak to their students but wouldn’t, for all the gold in Fort Knox, dream of having someone from the John Birch Society come and speak to those same students. A Communist speaker was just fine and as one college official stated, his school “wanted to expose students to all kinds of thought.” However, that standard would never have included a speaker from the JBS. They didn’t want to expose the kids to “all kinds of thought” that much!

Back on August 28, 2017 an article appeared on http://www.campaignforliberty.org which said: “The Senate Intelligence Committee recently passed its Intelligence Authorization Act for 2018 that contains a chilling attack on the First Amendment. Section 623 of the act expresses the ‘sense of Congress’ that WikiLeaks resembles a ‘non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors and should be treated as such. The language is designed to delegitimize  WikiLeaks, encourage the federal government to spy on individuals working with WikiLeaks, and block access to WikiLeaks’ website…WikiLeaks critics claim that the organization’s leaks harm US national security. However, these critics are unable to provide a single specific example of WikiLeaks’ actions harming the American people. WikiLeaks does harm the reputations of government agencies and politicians, however…” That’s really where the rub is! Too many Leftist politicians are getting exposed for the frauds they really are and people are starting to find out that what some of these Leftist and Deep State turkeys have done has harmed out national security and sovereignty, so they’d rather just sweep all that under the rug so we don’t find out about it–all for “our own good” of course. Or is it really for their own good?

Wesley Pruden wrote on https://www.washingtontimes.com on 4/27/17 that: “The only thing anyone is allowed to hear on campus is a slogan. Thinking is so 20th century (and early 20th century at that). The adults paid to be in charge have retreated to a safe place, where never is heard an encouraging word and the skies are cloudy all day…” Howard Dean, the former governor of Vermont and onetime chairman of the Democratic Party has noted that, where free speech is  concerned, that does not always include “extending it to everyone who disagrees with them.” In other words–if you agree with me and my agenda you get to talk (maybe). Otherwise, forget it because we don’t want anyone to hear what you might have to say.

There has been a lot on the Internet of late about how the big media sites, Facebook, Twitter, and others have been changing their algorithms so that conservative sites that use them get less traffic.

I am not a “technical” person, so I am not sure I understand how all this works, but, however it works, what it seems to do is end up taking conservative and patriotic sites and putting their material on pages 10 or 12 rather than on pages 1 or 2 where it had been previously. That does cut down on their viewership because most folks just don’t have the patience to scroll all the way down to page 10 to get what they used to get on page 2. So, leading conservative and nationalist sites like http://www.infowars.com, the Drudge Report, WorldNet Daily and a host of others will start to see their sites consigned to an internet netherworld, buried somewhere in a hundred pages of listings which most folks will not take the trouble to go into. This is designed to cut way down on the influence they have and the audience they are able to reach. It’s not that these big liberal/Left sites actually remove the material–they just bury it!

I noticed, and also had it commented on to me, how that, in 2017 a number of patriotic blogs had experienced a significant loss of viewership in 2017, compared with viewership in the previous 3 or 4 years when it had been expanding. So you have to wonder if such an occurrence might have been an “experiment” to see how this kind of thing would work for the Leftists and Deep State folks.

You folks who follow some of these sites that now seem to be getting posted three day’s journey from anything might have to start taking some of the important material from these sites and reposting it, with credit, on your own sites and for your own email lists so people can continue to read what the Deep State/Left does not want them to see.

Update: The internet censors have been at work on my article since I first posted it last evening (3/15/18).

When you read it you will notice I mentioned several websites you could click onto as sources for what I wrote. I also mentioned InfoWars and gave their link. When I clicked on their link in my article I ended up with someplace selling homes. I did the same this morning and ended up with an Amazon add, as well as a notice telling me I was trying to reach a “suspicious site.”

So I will type the link in here, again, and see what happens. If you try to click onto this and get some oddball substitute please let me know as then I will know that InfoWars is being censored off my blogs (for my own good, of course). Thanks.


“Maryland, my (home schooling) Maryland”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Home schooling is one of those things that scares the living daylights out of the Educational Establishment and the Deep State. Home schooling, and Christian education in general tend to be areas where the participants  do not always (usually) accept the Establishment version of history and/or politics.

From time to time, as they feel they can get away with it, the “change agents” in the educational bureaucracy  seek to remedy this situation by trying to find reasons to enforce new controls that will give them more power and control over home schooling, its curriculums, and its participants.

During the 1980s Rev. Paul Lindstrom, of the Church of Christian Liberty in Illinois, traveled around the country testifying in various court cases that helped and enabled parents to regain their right to home school their children which had been usurped by the Educational Establishment. By the late 1980s, home schooling was legal, in one form or another, in all the 50 united States. That fact did not, and does not, however, prevent the Establishment Education Czars from looking for any chance they can to reverse that trend–and if they can’t reverse it they can at least try to again regulate home schooling almost out of any real existence.

So it was no surprise to me when I came across an article on http://www.thefreethoughtproject.com  by Matt Agorist for March 11, 2018 that dealt with the latest attempted Establishment Educational usurpation in Maryland.

Mr. Agorist wrote: “Under the guise of preventing child abuse, lawmakers in Maryland have introduced a bill that will allow the state to intrude in the lives of innocent families, keeping tabs on them, and destroying their right to privacy. The bill, HB 1798–County Boards of Education–Home Instruction Program–Observation of Instruction and Reporting of Abuse and Neglect,  lays out some fairly ominous requirement that will persecute otherwise entirely innocent families for doing nothing other than teaching their children at home…The bill also lays out the framework for involuntary home inspections in which state agents will enter a family’s home multiple times a year–likely unannounced–and observe and inspect the homeschooling process.”

It seems as though there was a family in California that was guilty of massive child abuse and they were registered as home schoolers. So now the Education Czars in that “Sanctuary State” have automatically assumed that all home schools are probably guilty of those same abuses and need to be constantly regulated so they aren’t beating and starving their kids. It’s the same old bureaucratic “You’re guilty until you prove yourself innocent” routine that is practiced by so many government types in their efforts to gain control over other people’s lives. This is one thing politicians and bureaucrats always seek to do to justify their existence. They have to try to run everyone’s life, down to the minutest detail because, somehow, that seems to give them some sort of power trip. Being control freaks is what they live for. And it would seem that the “change agent” Educational Czars in Maryland have taken note of this instance in California and seen a real possibility in their state to assume more control over the lives of a group of people they only tolerate because the present state law forces them to.

It’s somewhat the same situation you see with all these school shootings. Some Leftist nut, usually on some exotic type of medication, kills a batch of kids and teachers in a school “gun free” zone and the bureaucratic  conclusion is that all gun owners must be potential terrorists and need to be regulated (and their weapons hopefully confiscated) as soon as possible, if not sooner!

Mr. Agorist accurately notes that: “Instead of realizing that the problem of child abuse has nothing at all to do with homeschooling,  lawmakers across the country are using this moment to demonize parents who wish to teach their children outside of the state…The audacity of the state to require that your children be inspected by them to prove that you are not guilty of child abuse is stunning and speaks to the nature of the cradle to grave mentality of the almighty controllers.” If this trend is allowed to continue it could, again, reduce the fundamental right of parents to home school their children back to the status of yet another state-regulated entity. I am sure that possibility has not been lost on the Educational Elite who seek to indoctrinate your children rather than letting you educate them.

Let’s don’t kid ourselves. This, in spite of the Establishment’s pious pleading, is not about the welfare of children–it is about who will control how they are educated and what they are taught. To educate your children is a parental right, and the Educational Elite (a major part of the Deep State Swamp) is not about to allow parents to assume this God-given responsibility  without a struggle to deprive those parents of that right.

Eighteen School Shootings This Year? That Number Is Rather Tenuous

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

We have been “informed” by several gun control freaks in recent days that there have already been eighteen school shootings around the country in the first two months of this year. These “artful dodgers” howl (according to script) about our crying need for gun control (actually confiscation) to prevent the carnage from growing even worse.

Thankfully, there have been some doubting souls that have questioned their figures, which turns out to be a good thing. Once you take a realistic look at their number (18) it turns out to be wildly inflated. Of course, for the Far Left, it all depends on how you define the term “school shootings” because, let’s face it,  the Leftists don’t define it the way normal people do. That’s because the Leftists are not normal people.

There was an article on http://www.washingtonexaminer.com on February 15th by Siraj Hashmi that pretty well nailed where the Left is coming from.. The author noted: “However, the media has been trying to convince you that the type of shootings where there are mass casualties are happening every day…Many in both the media and politics have used it as a rallying cry to make some legislative push to impose new restrictions on guns.  The problem is that it’s not accurate. There haven’t been 18 of what we refer to as school shootings in 2018.”

One place they got this inflated figure from is a “gun control advocacy” group called Everytown  for gun safety. So let’s look at some of these “school shootings” they list to see what really took place. Megan Cerullo of the New York Daily News made a list, probably from Everytown’s site, because her list and theirs are just about identical. Only Ms. Cerullo gives you a little detail, which is quite revealing.

She stated: “Jan 3, St. Johns, Michigan–the first school shooting took place just three days into the new year, at East Olive Elementary School in St. Johns, Michigan. A 31 year-old man died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in the former school’s parking lot.” This guy kills himself in the school’s parking lot and they classify it as a “school shooting.” I suppose, technically, you could say that in that he died on school property. But it doesn’t appear that he threatened or tried to harm anyone except himself. In another case, a 32 year-old man shot a pellet gun at a school bus and broke a window. No injuries listed. In Cochise County, Arizona a 14 year-old student shot and killed himself in the school bathroom. No other injuries listed.

The list goes on. On January 4th there was a gunshot fired through an office window at the New Start High School in Seattle. “The round entered an office window and ended up lodged in a three-ring binder.  No one was injured.” Do they even know if the shot came  from somewhere on the school grounds? It never says one way or the other. On January 10th in Denison, Texas “A bullet was accidentally fired through a classroom wall at the Grayson College Criminal Justice Center. No one was injured.” Hardly a student massacre!

On February 5th, in Maplewood, Minnesota, “A third grader pulled the trigger on a cop’s gun (while it was still in the holster) firing a shot at the Harmony Learning Center. No one was injured.” January 25th, Mobile, Alabama, Murphy High School student Jonah Neal fired a gun on campus. No one was injured. An unknown assailant drove by Net Charter School in Gentilly, Louisiana  and shot at a group of students. No real injuries. “A Winston-Salem State University football player was shot and killed at a sorority party following an argument.” In another instance a 12 year-old female student accidentally fired a real gun thinking it was a fake. Here, four students were injured, accidentally.  And in yet another case a teenage boy was shot in the chest and nearly killed by another student who was conspiring with the boy’s ex-girlfriend.

As tragic as some of these situations are, and I am not making light of them, (no one wants to see kids get hurt) they do not qualify to be considered as “school shootings” in the same way that Columbine or Parkland are. Some of these situations would have taken place somewhere else if the school had not been convenient for them. In that sense, they are not “school shootings.” Yet they are lumped together with what are school shootings because they help to inflate the number of “school shootings” so the Far Left will have something to throw out there at the “useful idiots” that will never bother doing the homework to verify the accuracy of the numbers the promoters and financiers of their protests hand them.

The real name of this game is eventual confiscation of all firearms and the abrogation of the Second Amendment, without which we have no way to defend ourselves from tyrannical government or local thugs. Sometimes you wonder if there’s much difference! Lots easier for the criminals, in government and out, to have their way with us if we can’t defend ourselves. In the final analysis, that’s what the Deep State and its Swamp critters really want–a helpless population!

Florida School Shooting–lots of people are starting to smell a rat!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Years ago I read a book about the United Nations and its Leftist formation by G. Edward Griffin, who many of you will have heard of. I don’t know if Mr. Griffin is still writing, he may be, but he has an excellent website on the internet and he picks up news items you won’t get too many other places. Check him out at https://needtoknow.news

On February 20th he had a column written by J. W. Williams posted on his website Need To Know. The title of it was The Mysterious Drills and Political Agenda of the Florida Shooting. I am going to give you a few snippets of it here and then list the link because it is worth reading the entire article. If all you have been getting about this situation is what you get on the Communist News Network and the sites of that group’s fellow travelers then you really need a more accurate version.

The article notes: “The signs that this was a staged event include the numerous mistakes by the FBI, a drill on the day of the shooting, warnings that the police would try to scare the kids with blanks during a drill, and massive gun control propaganda. Drills on the day of an event are a hallmark for false flag attacks, like we saw on 9/11 and the Boston Marathon Bombing.” And then the article lists a sequence of events that should really make one think. The article stated: “Cops were called to Nikolas Cruz’ home 39 times over a 7-year period. The FBI ignored two tips and failed to investigate the warnings that Cruz intended to become a ‘professional school shooter’ and that he owned guns. There were many reports and complaints from teachers, students and neighbors about his unruly behavior and fighting…Drills have been linked to mass violent events that change the political landscape. For example, military drills were being carried out during the 9/11 attack and the Boston Marathon Bombing…David Hogg, 18, a student journalist and director of the school’s TV news station said he thought the event was a drill because it was so well coordinated. He repeatedly called for action. He said that their have been 18 school shootings this year, but that claim has been debunked” Several witnesses have said there were multiple shooters, but this seems to be something that is almost never investigated. It seems as if the standard agenda for these events calls for one lone shooter and nothing beyond that will be acknowledged or admitted. Another thing conveniently swept under the proverbial rug is the fact that just about all the shooters in these false flag events are on some kind of Pychiatric medication that doesn’t seem to work for them as it does for others who take the same medications.

There are several videos with this article, which did not print out for me, but the comment under one of them is interesting. It says: “In this video, it appears that Hogg, who has become a leader of the student activists, has been coached and is following a script or repeating messages he gets from an earpiece while talking about drills at the school.” This David Hogg has a father that is a retired FBI agent.

The radical Left is really making hay while the sun shines with this event. The article notes: “The media and anti-gun lobby are also using  Douglas High School students to push the gun control agenda, and to recruit young people to vote…They have planned a ‘March for Our Lives’ in Washington next month that is affiliated with Michael Bloomberg’s radical anti-gun group, ‘Everytown for Gun Safety’.” Do you begin to see where all this is going? The link to Mr. Griffin’s website for this article is https://needtoknow.news/2018/02/mysterious-drills-political-agenda-florida-shooting/

Several articles I picked up researching today continued in the same vein. One from http://www.bizpacreview.com stated that: “High school student Colton Haab was hailed a hero for shielding his classmates from a crazed gunman in Parkland, Florida, but said when he was invited to speak at CNN’s townhall Wednesday the network organizers weren’t interested in what he wanted to say. Haab, who is a Junior Reserve Officer’s Training Corps member, said he had expected to ask his own questions and give his own opinions on the issues of gun control and school safety, but discovered he was going to be censored by the network instead. CNN  asked me to write a speech and questions, and it ended up being all scripted” according to Haab, who supports putting armed veterans in schools. Needless to say, Haab’s suggestion of armed veterans in schools did not fit the CNN agenda of keeping all schools gun free and promoting the idea of making the rest of us all gun free. Because, shorn of all the sophistry, that’s what CNN and the political Left really want.

Without firearms you cannot protect yourselves from a potentially tyrannical  government and that’s what the Left really wants. That’s what many in the government really want. They don’t want you to be able to defend yourselves against them because they are working to rid you of your Second Amendment rights so they can assume the position of Chief Tyrants! And they are using these false flag events to do this so you will not recognize what is happening to you until it is too late!

For starters, you all need to write or call your Congress critters and tell them flat out you don’t want them voting for any new gun control measures–zip, zero, nada! Then you all need to use whatever means is available to you, letters to the editor, the internet, word of mouth, or whatever to expose this rotten game for the usurpation of our rights–because that’s what this is. Each of us needs to ask the Lord for guidance as to what He would have us do, but we all need to do something! Those who won’t use their liberty will lose their liberty. It’s as simple as that!

Florida False Flag

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Originally, I had planned an article on another subject. But as this school shooting in Florida came along and as I watched developments it became apparent that this could wind up being one of the major false flags of the decade, depending on how much it ends up affecting our Second Amendment rights, which sadly, at this point, even Mr. Trump seems willing to compromise on. I hope the ease with which he is starting to cave in on this issue is not indicative of his trend for the future.

Today (Feb 21) I found an interesting article on https://constitution.com  which comments and asks questions about this situation (and some of the comments are worth passing along). I did not catch the author’s name but you should be able to pick up the article on their website. The author makes some penetrating observations about some of those anti-gun “students” from Florida we have all been treated to via the mainstream (fake news) media.

He notes: “There is a growing suspicion about some of the kids from the high school in Parkland, Florida, that was beset by a mass murder. Some are questioning the kids who have been all over TV advocating for the end of our Second Amendment rights. They are saying these kids are not mere high school students,  but are instead suspiciously well-trained activists.” Of course RINO Marco Rubio is putting his two cents worth in to condemn anyone who dares question the students’ integrity or sincerity.

According to a Tampa Bay Times reporter,  an aid to a Florida State Representative has said that: “…two of the kids who have been advocating for anti-gun policies are not regular students who were just caught up in the waves of history, but are ‘actors’ who were placed ahead of time to exploit a tragedy and push an agenda.” Rubio ended up attacking anyone who doubted what the students said. In other words–don’t you dare question what is going to be the “official version” of this event. Whatever questions you might have, keep them to yourself. Just sit down and shut up!

If you don’t follow this kind of thing, you may ask what is making people, who have now been exposed to these false flag events, begin to doubt these kids? According to the constitution.com article: “Well, in one case at least, some are now saying that Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg, who has been appearing all over CNN, MSNBC, the Big three networks, and even foreign media, is a plant. There is a lot of proof that this kid has been an activist for some time. The folks at True Pundit, for instance, made a few accusations ‘But now we learn Hogg was hanging out at CNN headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia sometime before the school shooting. Before the shooting. Posing behind a news anchor desk.”  And True Pundit added some photos to beef up their contention. There were a couple photos in the article, one showing Hogg wearing his CNN t-shirt and another with him sitting behid  CNN news desk with some young lady, presumably some sort of news anchor.

Also, http://www.infowars.com observed in an article https://www.infowars.com/student-anti-gun-activist-featured-in-cbs-la-news-story-six-months-ago/  Hogg was noted s having been in a news story in August of 2017 in Redondo Beach, California. It seems the young Mr. Hogg does get around. The inforwars article observed other things, one of them how some students seem to be getting coached on how they should act in front of the media. One student said: “We’re not afraid of people trying to exploit us. We’ve practiced.  We know their slimy tactics. Thankfully, most networks we’ve worked with are interested in telling the right stories…” Now there is a loaded comment if ever their was one! A plug from a student for the mainstream media because they try to tell the “right stories.” Right for who? That’s a question some of us would enjoy seeing answered. Right for who? All the “news” that fits?

The more I look and listen to folks who know how to read between the lines and interpret this stuff, the more it looks to me like this whole Florida shooting event is more than a bit dicey.  If this ends up being another event designed to cut the Second Amendment off at the knees, even with the reluctant blessing of the president, it won’t surprise me in the least.

The comment from that kids who said “We’ve practiced” was revealing. Why have you practiced? Who has been coaching you? From your comment is sounds like there are a bunch of you, not just one. Almost sounds like you all were prepped ahead of time for all this. I realize, according to Mr. Rubio, I shouldn’t be in the least suspicious, but…..

It Wasn’t All About Slavery!

by Al Benson Jr.

Back in February of 2013 (five years ago now, doesn’t seem all that long ago) I did an article for this blog called The Lincoln/Corwin “Keep your Slaves” Amendment. It discussed the Corwin Amendment, which many of you all probably never heard of. After all, it’s not one of those things the “historians” or the media make a big deal out of because it doesn’t fit their agenda of a “saintly” Lincoln who loved all blacks, or a treasonous South. Scroll back and read that article. It’s still there. That will save me having to restate much of it here. It was a amendment to the Constitution, introduced by Thomas Corwin of Ohio that would have kept slaves in bondage in perpetuity. The sainted Mr. Lincoln was in favor of it, had no problems with it. If you find that hard to believe then go back to February 2, 2013 on this blog and read it.

Lincoln stated, in his first inaugural address, on March 4, 1861 that, “I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so.”

Lincoln pretty much told us what the war (for him) was all about, and it wasn’t slavery. Even the vaunted Emancipation Proclamation” (actually a war and propaganda measure) did not free any slaves in the slave states remaining in the Union, nor did it free any slaves in the Confederate States where it had no legal authority. In fact, you could really say it was the “nothingburger” of the 19th century. So, given all these considerations, it’s hard to believe that “historians” and “journalists” in our day seem unable to come to grips with the naked truth that Lincoln declared war on the South so he could drag them back into the Union and hang on to all that tariff money the South had heretofore pumped into the national economy. The South had paid for 87% of the national economy, and if the South remained out of the Union, then the Union would tank in very short order and Lincoln had to get the South back into the Union so they could continue to “remit the extortion money” to Washington so Washington  would have that money to finance all those internal improvements they wanted to make up north! And those lucky Southern folks would get to pay for all that! Weren’t they just blessed???

Years ago (in 2007 to be exact) someone sent me an article by James W. King and Lt. Col. Thomas M. Nelson entitled The Ten Causes of the War Between the States. It was a good article and I hung onto it. It stated, in part,  “There were 10 political causes of the war–one of which was slavery–which was a scapegoat for all the differences that existed between the North and South. The Northern industrialists had wanted a war since about 1830 to get the South’s resources (land-cotton-coal-timber-minerals) for pennies on the dollar. All wars are economic and are always between centralists and decentralists. The North would have found an excuse to invade the South even if slavery had never existed..”

Frank Conner said pretty much the same thing in his book  The South Under Siege 1830-2000.

King and Nelson, in their article, listed the ten reasons for the war. After going over all their reasons, I had to conclude that they were right on target. They started off by listing the tariff; centralization vs. states rights and Christianity vs. Secular Humanism. This last one is one that few historians, or anyone else for that matter, take into account, yet it is one of the most important and critical. Of course that may be why it is so ignored today.

They listed cultural differences–another one most folks don’t ever give a thought to. We haven’t been taught to think along those lines and so most of these really critical issues just go over our heads. All we’ve been taught (or conditioned) to do is to react to lurid tales of Southern cruelty to slaves–as though the South was the sole proprietor of the slavery issue. It’s not! The North has a big slice of the proprietorship there, too, though most will never admit it, and neither will today’s spin media (excuse me, I meant “news’ media).

I already mentioned the North’s desire for control over Southern resources. Then there was slander of the South by Northern newspapers; New England’s attempts to instigate massive slave revolts in the South. Does Harper’s Ferry, Virginia come to mind here? Just about all those who financed the actions of terrorist John Brown in that gory undertaking were either New England or New York Unitarians and/or socialists. That fact was not lost on Southern folks.

Way down the list, at number 9, was slavery, and while it was an indirect cause, it was not the cause of the war–contrary to the propaganda being promulgated  in today’s classrooms and newsrooms.

I expect some will not appreciate it that I keep hammering at this issue, but when you have had 150 years of propaganda passing as history and news, you have to keep hammering to create cracks in that wall of false propaganda. Until our people begin to get it right about the War of Northern Aggression we will never get it right about any of the events that followed that war. That war was our French Revolution and we have never recovered from the results of it, nor the propaganda spun about it that conditions our thinking today.

Slavery was not the cause of that war. Secession was not treason. “Racism” was every bit as prominent in the North as in the South, maybe even moreso. It just didn’t get the media attention up there. And don’t tell me it didn’t exist up there. I grew up in the North.

With the divisions we have in this country today, culturally and otherwise, it would seem that we might be better off as two separate countries. I doubt that the North will ever totally be able to purge itself of its Unitarian/socialist world view. Left to its own devices, the South might have a chance. And, if push came to shove–much of the West would be better off siding with the South, because we have the same common enemies and the same desire to just be left alone, free from bureaucracy, to live our lives as we feel God intended.
