Goodbye Internet–Congress Still Yawning

by Al Benson Jr.

Several days ago I posted an article about how our beloved ruler, in his Marxist omniscience, was planning to give the Internet in this country to some other, outside governing body, which would then “regulate” (control its content) so that Americans would not have it to garner information from and we would be back to depending on the same old hackneyed Establishment “news” media for what we needed to know about how government was stiffing us.

Actually it probably wasn’t our beloved ruler personally that came up with this but rather the Establishment creatures that give him his marching orders and the agenda he is to follow if he wants to remain in office. These are the same people who will do the exact same thing for Hillary when she ascends to the throne in the White House.

The information I received about this gave the numbers of bills in both House and Senate that had been introduced to combat this, but it seems that, in both houses these bills we “in committee” which means that’s probably where they would die a natural death. Very few senators and house members co-sponsored these bills, which means we had (and have) a bad case of congressional apathy. Most of them really didn’t give a hoot, in fact some of them might have actually been happy to see this happen as it might mean, if some foreign body ends up “regulating” the Internet there might be less  negative info available about them to ordinary folks. And they wonder why the approval rate for Congress hovers around 6 percent!

Per the request I received about this I did contact my senators and representative urging them to sign up and co-sponsor the bills that would potentially keep the Internet in US hands and out of UN hands. The response I have received from my elected representatives has, shall we say, been rather underwhelming. I got one, rather tepid letter back from one senator that assured me he’d keep my views in mind on this subject. Nothing more. The other two didn’t bother. If other congress critters around the country have shown as much concern as the congress critters here in North Louisiana  I have to conclude that Congress, as a whole, couldn’t care less about the UN controlling the Internet instead of the US. That bothers me. Because if Congress is too lethargic  to care about the flow of information to US citizens free of UN control, then what else is there out there that concerns us that they just don’t care about?

Actually, I was a bit surprised. Usually my representative and senators are pretty good on the issues I write to them about and I do write to them about what bothers me. I have contacted them so often about Second Amendment issues I am surprised they don’t know me by the first name. They know when some gun control issue comes up they will get a communication from me letting them know what I think they should do. But on this issue, they seem mostly dead in the water–and I wonder why.

What’s going on that everyone shies away from dealing with our handing control of the Internet over to the UN or some other equally reprehensible foreign body? What’s the deal here?

Today is the last supposedly “free” day for the Internet and it’s not that our Congress is apathetic–it’s just that they don’t seem to care very much. I just contacted the one senator that bothered to write me and told him his letter was rather tepid and didn’t really tell me much. It looked like the kind of letter some ribbon clerk up on the 6th floor in an un-air conditioned office wrote and not what I usually get from this man.

I am beginning to wonder if Congress has been told to back off on this issue and just let it happen–all in the “national interest” of course. Figured I’d better post this today while I still had the chance as I don’t know how welcome it will be tomorrow or thereafter.

Trump says he wants to make America great again. If the current Marxist administration has its way it’s not going to leave him very much to work with!

Illuminists, Apostates, Spiritualists–the usual suspects–All Interlocking

by Al Benson Jr.

The title of this article should give you some idea of where we are headed. As we look at the Illuminati and its continuing influence, even down to today,  we have to note that much of their effort was (and is) directed at reaching the next generation or two and, through them, continuing to reach into the future. As evil as they were, they had a multi-generational approach to keeping their worldview, their religious faith as it were, alive and well. More Christians should take a multi-generational approach to making sure their children and grandchildren learn the truth. However, the Illuminist conspirators have taken great pains to make sure this does not happen by the way their minions have worked at neutralizing most churches with erroneous information and just plain bad doctrine. So the church ends up being neutered and what should be opposition to Illuminist efforts withers on the vine.

In his book A Theological Interpretation of American History C. Gregg Singer, once on the faculty of Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where he served as Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, has noted: “After 1830 there was a growing philosophical and theological cleavage between the North and the South.  While the North was becoming increasingly subject to radical influences, the South was becoming increasingly conservative in its outlook.” He observed that Old School Presbyterianism had begun to take a strong stand against the abolitionist position, “…not because it was opposed to slavery per se, but because of the philosophy and theology which it represented, and because they clearly saw that if this radicalism were to gain the supremacy in the national government, then there must certainly come in its wake a radical political and social program which would threaten the established order and constitutional government for the nation as a whole.” He took note of Rev. John Henley Thornwell’s commentary on this where Thornwell said: “The parties in this conflict are not merely abolitionists and slave-holders–they are atheists, socialists, communists,  red republicans, Jacobins on the one side and the friends of order and regulated freedom on the other.In one word, the world is the battleground–Christianity and atheism the combatants, and the progress of humanity is at stake.” Thornwell wrote this in 1850. The War of Northern Aggression was a decade away yet, but with amazing prescience, he saw what was coming and he recognized many of the adversaries. Rev. Benjamin Morgan Palmer called the abolitionist mindset “undeniably atheistic”  and he connected it with the French Revolution. These godly men saw the problem and recognized some of those involved, but did they grasp the fact that there was a guiding hand in back of the Jacobins, socialists, atheists and the rest that moved them all to do what they were doing in concert? Whether they did or not, it’s a question we ought to consider, for it is still applicable in our day when we look at some of the groups and individuals that perform radical acts on the contemporary scene.

We can all look at the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, the Southern Poverty Law Center and even the Ku Klux Klan in our day and ask the question–where does the money and direction come from for these groups to do what they do, and who behind the scenes that we never hear about gives them their marching orders? Because no matter how you try to cut the mustard, what most of these groups do is not spontaneous.  I watched so-called “anti-war” groups in action on two college campuses right after the Kent State shootings back in the early 1970s, when you had some of the most well-organized “spontaneous” demonstrations you ever saw, complete with propaganda printed in North Viet Nam for protesting American students to carry and hand out. And this stuff came to at least one of these schools by the box load because I brought a box full of it home at the time and went through it. So please don’t talk to me about “spontaneous.” I’ve been there–and “spontaneous” it ain’t!

It was no different after the War of Northern Aggression. Arthur Thompson has noted in his authoritative book To The Victor Go The Myths And Monuments that: “The practice of sending the worst sort of political radicals and members of secret societies as our representatives continued after the Civil War. These men represented the U.S. government, but not necessarily the American people.The Marxist Louis Blenker was appointed our man in Nantes, France. Alexander Asboth, who had served with Kossuth in 1848, was our man in Argentina and Uruguay…After serving as secretary of war and then attorney general under Grant, co-founder of the Order (of Skull and Bones)  Alphonso Taft was appointed U.S. minister to Austria and then Russia…(Carl) Schurz, after supporting a movement to annex Canada to the United States, became active in the anti-imperialism movement.” Makes you wonder if Schurz  was an early advocate of the present-day North American Union movement. Three of the four men mentioned here were Forty-eighters that Donnie Kennedy and I dealt with in our book Lincoln’s Marxists.  Only Alphonso Taft wasn’t–and he was co-founder of the Skull and Bones society which is still alive and flourishing today. Look up Skull and Bones on the Internet. You should find some interesting reading.

If you are able to get Mr. Thompson’s book, and I hope that many will, you will find an amazing list of people belonging to abolitionist, Spiritualist, socialist and Feminist groups mentioned and there are interlocking memberships and directorates in all these groups so that when you learn what to look for you can begin to see a pattern here of a small but influential clique of people belonging to different groups, which often seem at odds with each other, but are really not. You start to see the same names over and over again in the different groups and you cannot help but come away with the distinct impression that you really have one fairly small clique exerting tremendous influence  over many groups, and therefore many people. Such cannot be accidental or coincidental.

And this continued on into the twentieth century (and beyond).  Mr. Thompson mentioned prohibition and the  Prohibition Party, one of the founders of which was Alvan Bovay, one of the founders of the radical Republican Party.  He also noted, in passing, the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, “which was run by the lesbian Frances Willard.” Folks, I swear, you can’t make this stuff up!  In closing out this particular chapter, which majored on Leftist infiltration, Thompson noted: “A unit organized under the American Red Cross later served as a cover for American involvement  in helping to solidify Lenin’s Bolshevik  government in Russia.” I bet your history books forgot to include that one.

Those that wish to get information about Mr. Thompson’s book can contact: American Opinion Publishing, 750 N. Hickory Farm Lane, Appleton, Wisconsin 54914. Don’t think that the Illuminati is dead just because you don’t see the name floating around anymore. Rather, look at the myriad of other organizations out there today, no matter what their names, that promote anti-Christianity, One World Government, socialism, and all those agendas dear to the heart of any Illuminist.

The Southern Baptists Have Had Problems For Awhile

by Al Benson Jr.

Let me start off by saying that I have several friends who are Southern Baptists and I know some Southern Baptist preachers who are good, patriotic pastors for their congregations. My comments here are not directed at them or their congregations. I realize they see some of the same problems I am addressing here as much as I do.

Last week and earlier this week (this was originally written on Sat. June 18th) I did two articles on my other blog spot http://thecopperhead.blogspot.com  about the Southern Baptist resolution to disavow and remove all Confederate battle flags. The Southern Baptists have  been holding their yearly meeting this past week and the anti-Confederate flag resolution was of many that passed by a healthy margin so I am told. The people in the Southern Baptist Convention that pushed this resolution feel that all Christians should show “solidarity” (a good Marxist term) by removing any Confederate flags they have up anywhere. I hope they don’t hold their breath! This resolution denies the legitimacy of the Cause that all Confederate soldiers fought for (which was not “racism” or slavery) and it verbally slaps in the face today anyone who has a Confederate ancestor that resisted Yankee/Marxist aggression, and that includes me. Whatever Confederate flags  I have out  (and I vary them) are going to stay out and I seriously question the “concern” of those Southern Baptists that tell me I am “racist” for keeping them out. Oh, I don’t doubt the politically correct do have a concern–but for what and who? A lot of us here in the South are really getting fed up with the “perpetually offended” who expect us to totally dismantle our Christian culture and heritage just because they claim it bothers them. If I got to the point where I started listing things in their cultures  that bother me we could really have a donnybrook.

Unfortunately, the situation with the Confederate flag seems to be a symptom of where the Southern Baptists are headed in the main. I just read an article on http://www.wnd.com  the headline for which was: Pastor to Southern Baptist Convention: Stop push for Muslim refugees.  The article stated: “The Southern Baptist Convention threw down a gauntlet at the feet of Republican nominee Donald Trump and many conservatives, adopting a resolution encouraging churches and families to welcome and adopt refugees into their churches and homes…The resolution did not specifically refer to Islam or Muslims. However, Russell Moore, the head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Commission has been a prominent critic of Donald Trump and his proposed immigration policies…The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention is also supporting the building of a mosque in Bernard, New Jersey.” Needless to say, some of the local residents in that area are not overly enthused about the mosque and their concern about Shariah law in their area is a legitimate one. So why is the Southern Baptist Convention even doing this? I could see some of the culturally Marxist churches such as those in the National Council of Churches supporting this because they have been making common cause with the enemies of Christ for decades now, so it would come as no surprise to see them involved. But the Southern Baptist Convention is supposed to be a “conservative” group. Or has the definition of conservatism been changed?

One Southern Baptist pastor, Carl Gallups noted: “What should the Southern Baptist Convention have done about the mosque in New Jersey? They should have stayed out of the situation altogether!  They should have left the matter up to the voice of the local people and their elected and appointed officials…” Gallups made an accurate observation when he said: “…the ERLC would be hard pressed to find anywhere in the scriptures, or elsewhere, where the early church was aligning itself with government entities and ‘interfaith coalitions’ to assist in the constructing of more pagan temples, shrines and altars to Emperor worship in the Roman Empire–in the name of ‘religious liberty’.”

Gallups also noted that this was not the first attempt by the SBC committee at supporting the building of mosques.  The WorldNewsDaily article also observed that: “Gallups also pointed to the history of the ERLC in supporting mosque construction, notably the support of the Executive Director Richard Land for building the ‘Ground Zero mosque’ in 2010.” Gallups said: “I find it very suspicious that the ERLC, just a few years ago, under Richard Land attempted the same ‘mosque building agenda’…Now, only five years later, Dr. Russell  Moore does the very same thing.” Whether he realizes it or not, Pastor Gallups is observing cultural Marxism at work and in living color. The cultural Marxists, whether in churches or out (and there are a number of them within churches) do not deviate from their agenda and their agenda is ultimately anti-Christian, so they will work to get the church, in our apostate day, to support the cutting of its own spiritual throat–all in the name of “love” naturally.

Pastor Gallups mentioned Richard Land a couple times in his comments. So who is Richard Land? Richard Land, who used to hold high positions in the Southern Baptist Convention, is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, at least they have him listed as a member as of June 18th of this year.  So why does a leading Southern Baptist belong to the CFR? There would seem to be a contradiction or at least a major conflict of interest here. A prominent Southern Baptist as a member of the premier One World Government organization in this country, a member of the leading organization that promotes One World secular government! Something smells here and it ain’t in Denmark.

Now I’ve had a few folks over the years my Dad included, who told me I had a suspicious mind, but when you start to see things like this, how can you not have a suspicious mind unless you’ve quit thinking altogether?

I also ran across another interesting article on http://www.texemarrs.com that was published back in 2007 that dealt with the Council on Foreign Relations and Christian pastors that seem to be part of that group. The article dealt with “global spirituality.” It stated, in part, “To achieve this, the Illuminti’s premier political and economic organ, the socialistic, pro-Zionist Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), has elevated to membership two key operatives, two men who are at the helm of America’s most influential Christian evangelical groups. I refer to Pastor Rick Warren, Saddleback Community Church in California, and Dr. Richard Land, reigning religious potantate and poobah  of the massive Southern Baptist Convention. For the first time in the almost 100-year history of the CFR, evangelical leaders have been elevated to elite status as members of the exclusive globalist secret society.” I have often wondered about these evangelicals that end up with hundreds of churches following their agenda, whatever it happens to be at the time, and when I found out that Rick Warren was a big supporter of Obama in his first term, I knew I had been right to be suspicious. In regard to Dr. Richard Land, it turns out that he was (is) a big promoter of environmentalism.  It has been said that “Land essentially believes that Jesus died on the cross to save Mother Earth and to save human souls. Land says that the Great Commission includes the preaching of environmentalism just as much as it does the traditional John 3:16 message.”

So, has the CFR suddenly become interested in the Gospel message–or is it more interested in finding usable Christian pastors to push its “gospel” message onto unsuspecting Christian believers? It might be worthwhile and good for Southern Batist believers to start doing a little homework on Dr. Land and this One World Government organization he is part of.  If you want to read about the Council on Foreign Relaltions check out Gary Allen’s book None Dare Call It Conspiracy. It was published way back in 1976 but it is still relevant today. I understand that it is now out on the Internet and so you can check it out there for nothing, and you DO need to check it out.

Chicago’s School of Socialism—Midwest Academy

By Al Benson Jr.

Somehow, given the type of city it is, it only seems fitting that Chicago should have a school dedicated to the promotion of “progressive” agitation and propaganda supposedly to enable the poor and downtrodden to help them straighten their lives out—at the expense of everyone else and to the benefit of the political far left. Hence we have Midwest Academy—the Alinskyite paradise of the mid-continent.

Most who will read this have probably never heard of this school and that’s not by accident. An “educational” institution with an agenda like this one has is not to be advertised to the masses, lest they begin to ask questions.

Stanley Kurtz’s book Radical-In-Chief—Barack Obama and the Untold Story of American Socialism has an entire section dedicated to exposing this organization to the public, starting on page 131. Mr. Kurtz presents information and documentation that the public ought to be aware of so that we might begin to grasp the enormity of the socialist problem in our midst—from the White House on down. Mr. Kurtz, on page 131 of his book notes: “On Labor Day 1969, a group that included past SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) national secretary Paul Booth, his activist wife, Heather Booth, onetime SDS field secretary Steve Max and radical community organizer Harry Boyte published a pamphlet titled Socialism and the Coming Decade. Clustered several years later around an institute called the Midwest Academy, this group would go on to create a new way of blending socialism, community organizing, and electoral politics. In many ways, the Midwest Academy is the hidden key to Barack Obama’s political career. Obama’s organizing mentors had ties to it; Obama’s early funding was indirectly controlled by it; evidence strongly suggests that Obama himself received training there; both Barack and Michelle Obama ran a project called ‘Public Allies’ that was effectively an extension of the Midwest Academy; Obama’s first run for public office was sponsored by Academy veteran Alice Palmer;…Perhaps more important, Barack Obama’s approach to politics is clearly inspired by that of the Midwest Academy. Therefore, it is of no small interest that the Midwest Academy is a socialist ‘front group,’…The story of the Midwest Academy’s transformation from a stealthy nest of radical sixties socialists into a force at the center of the Democratic Party offers unparalleled insight into Barack Obama’s hidden political world.” How much of this did our investigative “news” media ever bring out? Our prestigious “presstitutes” of the fifth column are taught to bury this kind of information. This is “off limits” for the average American.

Mr. Kurtz is to be commended for the research he did for his book and for his attempt to alert the public as to the president’s deep socialist background. Others have also been trying to do the same thing, but thanks to an almost total media blackout, very little of this information makes it to the public at large. The “news” media and those that pay their tab want to make sure none of this sort of thing arises to disturb the public’s concentration on the nightly “reality” shows trotted out there to bemuse them and keep their minds off anything of real importance.

For all of that, some information does manage to seep through. On November 29, 2011, an article appeared on http://www.frontpagemag.com written by Matthew Vadum and entitled Union Gangsters: Heather Booth. Mr. Vadum writes, near the beginning of his article: “A disciple of Saul Alinsky, the socialist-feminist Booth co-founded the Chicago-based Midwest Academy, a training institute for community organizers…The Midwest Academy is funded in part by radical left-wing philanthropies such as George Soros’s Open Society Instutute, Tides Foundation, and the Woods Fund of Chicago. (Barack Obama and Bill Ayres served together on the Woods Fund board.)” Booth has embraced what is now called “stealth socialism” in that it advances the socialist agenda without appearing to do so. Earlier in her career, Booth was a bit more candid about her objectives. She said: “Truly reaching socialism or feminism will likely take a revolution that is in fact violent, a rupture with the old ways in which the current ruling class and elites are wiped out.” Today she is a bit less candid but the objectives are the same—depending on how you define “ruling elites.” She has no problem taking funding from George Soros and he has got to be one of the rulingest elites there is.

So we must conclude that outfits like Midwest Academy and those that run it are not really against our ruling elite as the ruling elite, in many cases, funds them. What they are really after is ordinary folks who have made good through hard work and dedication because these are some of the folks that will resist their socialist agenda. People like Soros will support it and promote it. The “super-rich” and the socialists have a lot in common. Us rubes in flyover country, however, are not supposed to be able to figure that out.

And another article on http://www.wnd.com written by Aaron Klein on 3/18/10 commented on the Woods Fund which has funded the Midwest Academy. Klein observed: “The Woods Fund, a nonprofit on which Obama served as paid director from 1999 to December 2002, provided startup funding and later capital to the Midwest Academy…Obama sat on the Woods Fund board alongside William Ayres, founder of the Weather Underground domestic terrorist organization.” Do you get the impression that many of these 60s socialists never really got rid of their socialist spots? All they did was cut their hair and put on business suits and proceeded to insert themselves into the “establishment” they professed to hate so much. And the “establishment” seems to have had no problem accepting them. Does this begin to tell you something about the “establishment?” All this may be a bit new to some of you, but think about it for awhile before rejecting it out of hand.

Probably lots of folks will not want to be bothered. As long as Big Brother lets them watch Monday night football and go fishing on Saturday morning they won’t complain too much, but I’ll tell you something folks, the end of those days may be coming. For that handful of you that wants to find out what’s going on you need to read Gary Allen’s None Dare Call it Conspiracy and The Rockefeller File. And while you’re at it, try to locate W. Cleon Skousen’s book The Naked Capitalist. You will find from reading these that the agendas of the ruling elite from above and the socialists from below are very similar, with the rest of us caught in the middle and being squeezed from both sides. And then, if you go back in our history 150 years and read Donnie Kennedy’s and my book Lincoln’s Marxists you will find that the socialists were the establishment. Actually, very little has changed since then, except that the destruction of the folks in the middle, the middle class, is becoming more apparent with each passing year, and the middle class, many of them Christians, sleep on unaware and unconcerned.

I have had occasion to wonder—where is the Christian alternative so something like the Midwest Academy? Unfortunately, I am afraid it doesn’t exist.
