Coups And Questions

by Al Benson Jr.

Has anyone other than me noticed a subtle shift in the direction the Trump administration seems to be taking? I try to keep track of all this, from various websites to You Tube presentations,to news articles people send me, and in just the last few days, I have gotten the feeling on the back of my neck, where the hair stands up (what there is of it) that something is going on–and it ain’t good!

One source noted some signs of a possible coup, and one of those signs was a lack of information for the President from previous sources, which have been mostly good sources. Now it seems that his “new” sources of information all have to be “official” sources, which means that friends, and even some family, no longer seem to have access to him and information previously passed to him by friends now has to go through “official” channels, which will ultimately decide what the President sees–or if he sees it at all.

Trump has three generals in the White House. At least two of them have connections with Deep State organizations. So who advised him in choosing these guys? None of them are on the same page he is on, but yet they all have high level positions in his administration and he has been out there defending at least one of them against those who have taken the trouble to point this out. So what’s the deal?

Congress has just recently passed a bill on Russian sanctions, which don’t help our situation regarding World War 3 to any great extent. Supposedly the bill was on Trump’s desk by July 29th. I even read some articles that said that Congress passed this to tie Trump’s hands in dealing with Russia. Makes you wonder which side Congress is really on–well, not quite–seeing that leadership positions are held by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, whose wife is also in Trump’s cabinet and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which side Congress is on–and it ain’t ours!

If Trump signs this bill–does it indicate that he has seen the handwriting on the Deep State wall and is ready to throw in the towel. Or does it indicate that his decisions are already being made for him and no one else realizes it yet? Has decision making on important issues been taken away from Trump? I realize there are lots of questions here but I want folks to start thinking about this stuff.

If the Deep State is making the major decisions already, will they, in the long run, even be able to leave Trump alive? He represents what many Americans want–a desperately needed change in the direction this country has gone in for decades. Ultimately, the Deep State not only hates Trump, but all of us “deplorables” that voted for him too. Should some “accident” befall him, would that be a Deep State lesson to patriotic Americans to just “shut up and sit down?”—or Deep State Daddy will be coming for you?

Michael Savage has said that if the Deep State takes out Trump there will be a civil war in this country. Ordinary folks will rise up and fight back. One can hope and pray that Michael Savage is right. Based on what I have seen over the years, all I can say is that, on this and several other questions “I’m from Missouri–you gotta Show Me!”

It seems we are entering a time when Christians are really going to need to be able to discern good from evil. Or as Matthew said in Matthew 7:15, “Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” Some of them may come in military uniforms with lots of medals on them, and some may come in expensive suits worn by congressmen, but the “ravening wolf” part still applies–maybe even more so.

When Trump got elected I felt the Lord was giving us one more chance to repent and start to turn around. I’m not sure we’ve done an awful lot of that. Judging from some of the response I’ve seen, lots of folks, when Trump got elected, just said: “Well, we’ve got another Republican in the White House now so we can all just take it easy and go back to sleep for another four years.” That was hardly the response that is needed.

If the Deep State succeeds in taking out Trump, unless there is great revival, you will not have another chance at decent government in this country, not only in our lifetimes, but in the lifetimes of our great grandchildren. Most people do not realize what is at stake here. Most Christians do not realize.

Trump’s Main Enemies In His Own Administration

by Al Benson Jr.

You might almost say that this is what Pogo was talking about years ago when he said “we have met the enemy and he is us.”

We all know President Trump has a ton of enemies on the political and theological Left, among Democrats, “progressives” and other slithery denizens of the “vast Left-Wing political Swamp.” These people all heartily wish Mr. Trump, his family, and his agenda extreme ill. And they are working toward that end. That’s a given.

What is not so apparent to many is the fact that these people represent only  one portion of Trump’s opposition. They are the most vile and vulgar part, but they are not the most dangerous and insidious part. The most dangerous and insidious part of his opposition hides in plain sight–as part of his administration. These are the people that are supposed to be helping him promote his America First agenda, and a handful are, but many beyond that handful are diligently working at helping him to fail in his effort, and what’s more, some of the more deluded among them may even think they are doing the country a service by aiding in his downfall. But others among them are not deluded–and they are the ones he has got to learn to beware of. Ironically, some of these are people he has chosen himself, and you have to wonder who advised him in some of these choices.

Mr Trump truly respects the military and in a sense, he has surrounded himself with generals–Flynn, Mattis, McMaster, and others. I think here that Mr. Trump has made a grave error in his thinking. Just because someone happens to be or have been a general in the military doesn’t automatically mean he is your friend. There are such things as political generals.

I have recently seen commentary on the Internet about a movie from back in 1964–Seven Days In May,  starring Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas, both dedicated Leftists in their day. Anyone remember that one?  Remember what it was about–a military coup to overthrow the president. In the movie it failed, but not by much. And there are actually people here who naively believe that “it just couldn’t happen here in America.” Well, dream on folks, because it may well, even now, be in the process of happening, and sleeping Americans won’t realize it until they wake up some fine morning not too far down the road and the prostitute press happily informs them that this occurred “while you slept.” Which will probably end up being true in more ways than one.

The question might well be asked–why are some generals in the Trump administration aiding and abetting those on the Far Left to engage in their attacks on the Trump administration?  One answer is because the generals and those on the Far Left have the same bosses.

Let me cite a classic example here, taken from an article in the Washington Examiner for August 3, 2017. The article was authored by Melissa Quinn and entitled: H. R. McMaster told Susan Rice she can keep her security clearance.

According to Quinn’s article: “National Security adviser H. R. McMaster told former national security adviser Susan Rice that she could continue to have access to classified information and that he would waive a ‘need-to-know’ requirement when it comes to accessing classified information contained in documents she saw or received during her time as national security adviser, according to a report. The letter was sent from McMaster to Rice’s home in April, according to Circa and the president didn’t know about either the letter or McMaster’s  decision to allow Rice to keep her Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information clearance.”  So here we have a woman, part of the Obama administration, about to be investigated by Congress because she was involved in unmasking people on Trump’s team during the last election, and McMaster has given her permission to keep her top secret security clearance. Why is this? It seems that several people from the Obama administration have gotten to keep their top secret security clearances when the Trump administration came in–one of them being Hillary. This enables them to get in and poke around in who knows what that they should no longer be given access to. Again, why is this??? I’d sure like to know and I am sure lots of other folks would to.

Then there was the article on http://dailycaller.com for August 3rd which said: “National Security adviser H. R. McMaster is thwarting President Donald Trump’s foreign policy prescriptions…Everything the President wants to do, McMaster opposes. Trump wants to get out of Afghanistan–McMaster wants to go in. Trump wants to get out of Syria–McMaster wants to go in. Trump wants to deal with the China issue–McMaster doesn’t…” There’s more, but you get the idea. One official stated: “I know the president isn’t a big fan of what McMaster’s doing the former official declared. I don’t understand why he is allowing a guy who is subverting his foreign policy at every turn to remain in place.”  That’s a very good question–why indeed? Is there some situation there whereby Trump is unable to do anything about this? If so, then Trump has already lost the presidency but no one realizes it yet.

McMaster is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations so you have to know he will kowtow to the One World Government cabal and their agenda. But why is Trump leaving him in place to do this. Is he so enamored of military generals that he can’t see that McMaster is deep-sixing him on every possible front? Or is there something else going on that prevents him?

And then there was the article on Zero Hedge for April 13, 2017, by William Craddick, taken from a site called Disobedient Media, in which the headline stated: “H. R. McMaster’s Ties To Soros-Supported Think Tank Raise Questions.” Disobedient Media sounds like an interesting site.

All in all, at this point, it seems that Mr. Trump is appointing people to high positions that have vested interests in seeing that he fails miserably, and because of that the American people fail. Up to this point I have supported Trump and applauded much of what he did, but if he continues to appoint people that have his demise as a main part of their agenda, then I begin to start wondering what is going on and why. Appointing those who want to make sure America continues to head in the wrong direction, according to Comrade Obama’s wishes is hardly the way to “Make America Great Again.”

Update: WorldNetDaily.com  has also, just this evening weighed in on this issue. They claim McMaster should be fired because of “subversive insubordination” in purging Trump loyalists recently.

They noted that McMaster has reportedly “blocked an attempted purge of holdovers from the Obama administration within the National Security Council, while removing a half-dozen key Trump loyalists, three in the last three weeks.” However, McMaster doesn’t like the word “holdover.”  He says “there’s no such thing as a holdover” just loyal career staffers. What a crock that is!

It seems that Trump has been kept in the dark about much of the purging, but the word seems to be “leaking out” (no puns intended) and supposedly Trump has thought about replacing McMaster with CIA Director Mike Pompeo. He needs to look somewhere else. Doing that is little more than replacing the devil with one of his disciples.

Mueller the Mole

by Al Benson Jr.

Back when the Communists were trying to overthrow the US government, while the Cold War was raging, they managed to insert what we call “moles” into several governmental agencies to do their dirty work. They had people in the State Department and the Department of Agriculture and several others. That they obviously had help from Washington insiders to pull this off hardly needs to be mentioned. It is a given.

The history of all this is fascinating and there are several books out there that have gone into much of this in pretty fair detail. One, written years ago by someone who was part of it all is Witness by Whittaker Chambers. It’s a long book (Chambers had a lot of info to pass on), over 700 pages, but it is worth the read and you don’t need to accomplish it all in one evening. It took me awhile to get through it, but I learned from it and you will to.

In fact you might say it would be a good primer for understanding some of what is going on in Washington today. I recommend it.

In this vein, I read an interesting article on http://renewedright.com this past week about “special counsel” Robert Mueller, who is supposedly investigating the Trump administration about these endless “Russian collusion” theories plastered all over the prostitute press by the Deep State and its Leftist allies. After months of this mass propaganda about Trump colluding with the Russians, any evidence of such collusion has yet to make its appearance, which leads me, with my cynical mind, to believe there ain’t any. If Mr. Trump’s Deep State adversaries had even a scintilla of evidence they would long ago have trotted it out. In fact, there is much more evidence of collusion between the Clintons, Obama, and the Russians, but Mueller’s carefully orchestrated “investigation” is making sure that angle doesn’t even get honorable mention.

The Renewed Right article contained an old photo of Mueller in it–sitting between Comrade Eric Holder and someone that looked suspiciously like Muslim convert John Brennan, so Mueller is in the right company–over on the Far Left.

Robert Mueller is a mole in the Trump administration–one among many. The Renewed Right article stated, regarding what Mueller is doing when it said: “His investigation is the Deep State’s secret weapon in trying to take out Donald Trump…Mueller has staffed up with hard charging Democrat partisans to dig through every facet of Trump’s life in a desperate attempt to force Trump from office…White House adviser Kellyanne Conway pointed out the number of Hillary Clinton donors on Mueller’s team is cause for concern. Mueller’s investigation is far adrift  from its original mandate of alleged Russian election interference.”

Of course it is! It was always intended to be so. The Deep State Cabal pushing the “Trump and Russian collusion” drivel knew from day one there was nothing to it. However, they continued to sling mud against Trump’s wall in the hopes that some of it would stick. Well, it stuck long enough that they had a lame excuse to bring Mueller in so he could start to sift through Trump’s business enterprises and all his financial matters from over a decade ago, in the hope of finding, something, anything at all, to justify all their poking around. Who knows–maybe they’ll dig up evidence that Trump ate in a Russian restaurant twenty years ago somewhere and from that they can throw out, for the public, their “assessment” that the waiter who waited on his table was a Russian agent. I use the word “assessment” here because political operative Roger Stone once said “When you see the word ‘assessment’ in a government document it means that they really have nothing. It’s all BS.” I fear that Mr. Stone is correct. “It’s all BS.”

The Renewed Right article said, in conclusion, “The special counsel investigation is part of a coup against the duly elected President of the United States. Mueller’s hires make that abundantly clear.”

And would you believe, I read a headline for an article on the Internet that stated that just because Mueller had hired all Hillary and Obama supporters as part of his team, that was no reason whatever to think they would exercise any bias in what they were investigating. My jaw dropped when I read that one! I thought, come on, people. You can’t honestly believe that. If you do, then you are really stupid–either that or you hope your readers are!

Also, I just read today (7/30/17) that a congressional committee has finally voted to begin to investigate Hillary and her friends and the Clinton Foundation. Suffice it to say, this is long overdue! I sincerely hope they get moving with this and don’t take another eight months to get it off the ground. Their investigation will be much more important than the charade Mole Mueller is conducting in hopes of taking Trump down. Maybe we need to write our Congress critters and tell them that.

Establishment Coup Against Trump?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have noted recently that a group of evangelical Christian pastors gathered in the White House to pray for President Trump. Although I have had my problems with evangelical complacency over the years, I took this as a good sign. It showed that these pastors realized, at least to some extent, that we have a major problem in this country and they realize that the president is under constant assault, not only from the Leftist Democrats, who are little short of Communists, but also from those in his own party that are really little short of Communists themselves. The political establishment in Washington and New York is trying to find some way of removing Trump, who was duly elected, but whose election and the wishes of the electorate, they plan on undoing and reversing. In other words, your vote will count–if you vote for the right Leftist. Other than that, it is to be reversed.

At any rate, one of the pastors that prayed for the President, Rev. Howard-Browne, originally from South Africa, was later told by a “senior congressman” that the president is “to be removed.” The pastor asked, did he mean by impeachment, indictment, or what? The congressman told him it would be nothing quite that quiet, but rather he would just “be removed suddenly.” Now we have the exalted high priest of global warming, Al Gore, stating that in the next few months this country may be faced with some calamitous events. He didn’t say what those would be, but you have to wonder if there is any connection between that and what the congressman told Pastor Howard-Browne.

The pastor asked the question–“Who do we trust in the Treasury Department.” The congressman just shook his head. The pastor then posed the question–how many Obama operatives do we still have around? That’s a very good question. Most evangelicals wouldn’t think to ask it, but this pastor did, which shows he has some perception of the current situation. I saw a video of this pastor telling his congregation that Christians need to seriously pray for President Trump, for his protection, and that the Establishment be hindered from doing whatever it is they plan to do.

Interestingly enough, after Pastor Howard-Browne made his comments, he was visited by the Secret Service. They wanted the name of the congressman that had warned him of this. He wouldn’t give it to them. He told them they would have to subpoena him–and even then he probably would not say who it was.

It’s interesting that the Secret Service wanted the congressman’s name but didn’t seem otherwise concerned about the content of his warning. That tell you anything?

Let’s don’t kid ourselves. The Establishment, Deep State, or whatever you care to call those people, have a vested interest in making sure Trump’s America First agenda fails. While Trump wants to enable the American people to do better, the Establishment does not want us to do better. They love having their jackboot on our necks. It makes them feel important and powerful and so they must stop Trump from doing whatever he can to remove that jackboot. They want Trump, and us, to fail. The middle class must be done away with so that only two classes remain–the ruling establishment class, and the serfs.

For those among you that believe in the power of Christian prayer, I would advocate that you begin praying for the President on a regular basis. The Leftists hate Christian prayer, or anything Christian for that matter. They are best described in Psalm 56:5–“Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.” This is a perfect description of our Ruling Establishment.

There is power in Christian prayer and, as Christians, we need to begin to use that power more effectively. And we should also begin using the power of exposure and Christian opposition to what is clearly evil, as noted in Ephesians 5:11.

Since I have been having trouble with my phone service and email lately, I would ask that all who see this article please make a point of passing it along to those on your mailing lists, for which I thank you in advance.

Update: Last evening as I was passing along the link to this article to several on my Facebook page, one at a time, I was informed by Facebook that this could no longer be done. I had probably forwarded about 20 or so when I received the notice that I could not longer do this. For years I have done this for various articles on my blogs, but it seems that now, for me at least, this is no longer permissible. I’ll bet if I were some sort of raving lunatic Leftist there would be no problem whatever but because I am hardly a raving lunatic Leftist, I am not allowed to post links to my articles singly for some of my friends. Now understand, folks, this has nothing whatever to do with net censorship. Right? Right? No answers???

Open Letter to President Donald Trump

Dear Mr. Trump,

You may well be already aware of what I am going to say here, but I felt the need to say it anyway. Lest it come across to you in the wrong manner, let me state that my wife and I both voted for you, and we pray for you, that what you are trying to do will be successful. There are people in your own administration that cannot honestly say that much.

Regarding this entire “Russian collusion” narrative you have asked several good questions which I need to comment briefly on. It should be obvious to you that Mr. Mueller, in some vain attempt to tie you to something illegal or treasonous, will investigate you, your family, your friends, including all the family pets (to see if you ever owned a Russian wolfhound) back for at least three generations, and no matter how tenuous whatever they manage to dig up is, it will be parroted by the mainstream media as a world crime of gigantic proportions. I think we both realize that.

You asked a good question in one of your tweets–“What about all the Clinton ties to Russia, including Podesta Company, Uranium deal, Russian Reset, big dollar speeches” (given by William Jefferson Clinton?) In any honest investigation of Russian connections all of this would be included in the investigation along with whatever you are accused of. But I think we both realize that what you have aptly termed a “witch hunt” is not an honest investigation. It is exactly what you said it was–a witch hunt!

That being the case, any questions about Hillary’s ties to Putin, or what Podesta did, or the Clinton uranium deal with the Russians, or Bill’s big dollar speech in Moscow are simply not on the agenda and never will be on the agenda. Indeed, if anything, the current fuss over your “Russian collusion” is little more than an excuse to cover up whatever has occurred  between Hillary, Bill, Podesta, and the Russians, because all those connections are most definitely not to be dealt with. So if you are looking for an answer to your very legitimate questions in their area, you may get one by the twelfth of never, but not before!

The entire “investigative” agenda here is to get rid of you and render your administration helpless to change the direction the Deep State (Swamp) and its Fake News appendages have been going in for decades. That’s what all of this is really all about.

Your administration has to be destabilized because you are tearing down what these people have spent decades constructing–a globalist, one world government, with themselves as the god/rulers of that government. In order for them to complete their task, you have to go, and the legitimate wishes and desires of the American people have to go too. After all, we are just a batch of “deplorables.” Ask Hillary!

Might I be so bold to suggest that, if your America First agenda is to have any chance of success–these people who get their jollies out of tormenting you and your family–all have to go. And you have to work at legally dispensing with them.

Many evangelical pastors have come and prayed with you. That’s good. You will need God’s wisdom to know how He would have you do what I think we both realize you need to do.

I won’t take up anymore of your time. Thank you for reading this, and may God bless your efforts to do what is right for America.

Sincerely,

Al Benson Jr.
