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.



Federal Agencies Work To Fulfill Karl Marx’s Vision

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have an old copy of The Communist Manifesto published by International Publishers back in 1969. It’s dog-eared, with lots of stuff underlined, and with my comments in the margins, because I have made lots of use of it in refuting what its author and those Illuminists that financed him promote in it.

On page 23, Marx stated: “In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in a single sentence: Abolition of private property.” He then goes on to explain what he means by that and says that the concept of property is based on class antagonism.

Whether they even realize it or not, (and I think at the leadership levels they do) many of the federal agencies at work in the Western states are actively promoting what Marx has advocated, and their agenda is to eventually absorb all private property in this  country.

Range Magazine for the Fall of 2014 carried an article by Julian Stone which noted: “The feds will not be satisfied until they have control of all private property–and not only in the America West.” Think about what you just read.

Mr. Stone noted in his article several areas I have referred to in other articles. One was on the Texas-Oklahoma border, the Red River. He noted: “Private landowners in Texas and Oklahoma have wrangled since 1919 over lands bordering the river. Now the Oklahoma BLM is formulating new land management plans for 116 miles of the Red River borderlands for which private landowners in Texas have paid hundreds of thousands of dollars (to pay for property or in taxes?) and the BLM says it belongs to the government. “The land in question belongs neither to Texas or Oklahoma, even if locals have bought it from one another and continue to pay taxes on it.” Thus spake the BLM in its infinite wisdom (or was that greed?). I understand that since Trump got into office some of this has changed, but you can bet your boots, spurs and all, that the next time you get another Democratic administration in Washington it will change back again and legalized theft will again be the order of the day. All the BLM has done is to back off–for now.

Further along in his article Mr. Stone has observed: “BLM recommends establishing new national monuments by using the Antiquities Act ‘which allows the president to act quickly.” In other words, steal it before the local rubes know what’s going on and can squawk! The Western Congressional Caucus noted awhile back that: “The president is going down the list, and sealing off vast swaths of the West on behalf of his special interest allies, who view our states as their personal playgrounds.” The president referred to here was Comrade Obama. But do you think if they get a Democrat, or even a liberal (socialist) RINO in the White House these plans will cease? Right now they may be on hold. Don’t let Trump’s being in the White House lull you back to sleep. These federal agencies, the BLM, the Forest Service and the whole bevy of federal agents are only waiting, with bated breath, for their next chance at a federal land grab to begin anew. Administrations may change–the leopard’s spots don’t!

Mr. Stone listed a whole batch of areas the BLM would dearly love to grab control of, literally millions of acres all across the West–The Organ Mountains Desert Peaks, nearly 500,000 acres; Gold Butte in Nevada; the Dolores River Basin in Colorado–another 500,000 acres;  Hidden Gems in Colorado, another 400,000 acres; Montana’s Northern Prairie, about 2.5 million acres; the Sonoran Desert in Arizona, 500,000 acres, and the list continues. I can’t list all of them. One thing you have to say about the BLM–they don’t think small. They really want it all. This is only a wish list for the first installment. They’ll take it a few hundred thousand acres at a time, but they and their sister “agencies” mean to control it all.

What do you think all this does to the ranching, farming, mining and logging culture of the Western states? It destroys it–and that’s the whole idea. They are making the same stupid (or deliberate) mistake the African dictatorship of Zimbabwe  made when it displaced all the white farmers and the country’s leader gave all that farmland to his good buddies–who didn’t bother to farm it–and now the country is starving where it used to export surpluses.

The cattle industry in this country and the independent way of life that ranching has produced are slated for destruction. We don’t need cattlemen or sheepmen or farmers. We can always buy our meat from overseas–at inflated prices. The feds seem to think that sure beats having our own ranchers produce what we use and it make us dependent on other “cultures.” It destroys our own  unique Western culture in the process–and for the feds, that is just as important as making sure we get millions of illegal immigrants, preferably from Muslim countries, in here to “enhance” our native culture. There are lots of different agendas involved here at different levels. However–the destruction of American Western culture is one big part of it.

And for you folks here in the South, lots of you farm and raise cattle also. You may not lease public land for grazing, but ask yourselves this–how many federal agencies tell you how much cotton or tobacco you are allowed to grow–on your own land? How big a step would it be from that to the feds telling you how many sheep cattle, or goats you can raise–on your own land???

So let us not kid ourselves. Whether Trump is in office or not (and I am not questioning his honest intent) the federal agencies  really do mean to fulfill Marx’s vision for a new Communist world and a new Communist man. They are raising particular hell in the West right now. When they think they have accomplished their plans there they will start to come for the rest of us. You all had better be aware of that and get ready to do whatever you can legitimately do to resist–because it will happen, as sure as the turning of the earth!

Has it ever occurred to our  good Southern folks that the destruction of our monuments, our history and heritage, is the first step in this campaign in our part of the country. Then they will work on the Midwest. They don’t have to worry too much about the Northeast or the Left Coast–those already belong to them, but they want the rest of us under their heel asap!

Chicago Needs To Think Twice Before Begging For UN “Peacekeeping” Troops

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

So the One World Government crowd in Chicago thinks they are doing the right thing by requesting United Nations “peacekeeping” troops to patrol their streets to root out crime and dispense with firearms? If you only had a clue as to what you are asking for–well, maybe some of you do and the idea doesn’t bother you. You feel you are taking an important step into the corridors of potential One World government and if only you show the way, others may follow your shining example.

Though others may try to follow your example, they will curse you for it in the end, once they wake up and find out what you have unleashed in this country.

“Huntin’ and peckin” around on the internet, I found an article by Declan Walsh Nicola Byrne on http://www.globalpolicy.org from way back in the ancient days of December of 2002. It was quietly titled UN Peacekeepers Criticized. Byrne started off the article with: “An Irish soldier  serving as a United Nations peacekeeper in Eritrea has been caught making pornographic videos of local women and is now serving a jail sentence in Ireland…the Eritrean government has condemned the activities of the Irish defense force and questioned its continued presence  in the war-scarred state in the Horn of Africa… Yesterday a government spokesman said ‘these people call themselves peacekeepers, when in fact all they want is a long holiday and a chance to fool around with our women. They do not respect our country, our culture, or our people’.” Later in the same article, it was noted that: “United Nations peacekeeping troops have been involved in a catalogue of crimes and scandals across the globe. During the UN peacekeeping mission in Somalia, it was claimed Canadian, Belgian, and Italian soldiers were involved in torture and murder. An inquiry by the Canadian government of a young Somali man in 1993,  found that he had been murdered by its troops and that a senior officer had lied  in an attempt to cover up the atrocity. Two soldiers were jailed.” This is not the only article I have read about this sort of thing. Could it be that the UN’s version of “peacekeeping” is somewhat different than ours?

Several instances are mentioned in a book I called attention to in my recent article on the UN. Author William Norman Grigg observed in his book Freedom On The Alter–The UN’s Crusade Against God & Family, on page 2, that “Survivors and witnesses of the UN’s 1961 ‘peacekeeping’ massacre in Katanga, a province of the former Belgian Congo, regard the ‘Blue Berets’ as something less than heroic.  Religious scholar Thomas Molnar, who has ample firsthand experience with UN ‘peacekeeping’ activities testified: ‘I have often walked in the footsteps of United Nations troops intervening for peace and seen the pillage, rape, and injustice. In the ex-Belgian Congo, Indian UN soldiers were feared like the plague’.”

And on page 3, Mr. Grigg observed that: “In 1994, UN ‘peacekeeping’ troops in Mozambique purchased sexual favors from impoverished children. In 1988, the director of the Belgian UNICEF committee was convicted of participation in a child sex and prostitution ring; the organization’s Brussels office was used to manufacture child pornography, much of it involving children of North African descent…Somalians will recall that during the UN’s ‘Operation Restore Hope,’ civilians were massacred  indiscriminately by Pakistani ‘peacekeepers’.”

Now I have to admit that reading about some of this stuff is pretty gruesome. I don’t particularly enjoy writing about it. There are other subjects I’d much rather deal with, but, people need to be aware of some of what has gone on under UN auspices in the name of “peace.” The United Nations gives you the same kind of “peace” you get from the Communists!

So, with the politicians in Chicago pandering for UN participation in their city, we have to ask, is this something we really want in this country? Even in Chicago??? The city council in Chicago needs to realize what they are asking for–if some of them don’t know already. Years ago someone said to me, and I never forgot it “Be careful what you ask for–you may get it.” I recall one instance in my  life where this came true and it drove the point home.

The UN may have a record of “peacekeeping. But, is it the kind of “peace” we want, and at what cost, and to who? The last thing you want in this country is United Nations “peacekeepers.” The “peace” you get from them may be the “peace” of the grave!

United Nations Troops In Chicago? If they can get by with it!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

UN troops policing Chicago? I thought maybe during the socialist reign of Comrade Obama, but during a Trump presidency? Well, yes, if they can get by with it.

I read an article on Zero Hedge this evening (12/19) that basically asked this question–Is the situation in North Korea and the Middle East a giant distraction? Good question. Anyone remember the Gulf of Tonkin? A lie with the purpose of getting us into a war we should never have been in to begin with.

And now we have all this going on in Asia and the Middle East, where everyone’s attention is distracted, and a member of the Cook (Crook) County board of commissioners  in Chicago is trying to invite the United Nations and its troops into this country via the back door while no one is paying attention. According to an article on CNSNews.com  “Democrat Richard Boykin, flew to New York City on Thursday for talks with a senior U.S. peacekeeping official, proposing that the world body deploy blue helmets in Chicago to deal with what he called ‘genocide’.”

By whose authority did Mr. Boykin do this? Did he have official sanction for doing it, and if so, by whom? If not, he shouldn’t be doing it–and actually, he shouldn’t be doing it anyway. Where does the Cook County board of commissioners get off asking the UN to come in here and help us solve our problems? The Police Superintendent has noted that the UN has no jurisdiction on US soil. So how are they going to come in here and police anything? Even an invite from the Cook County board wouldn’t cut the mustard because these would be foreign troops with no official jurisdiction in the United States, Illinois, or anywhere else here. Or is this a behind-the-scenes move to try to change that–to set some sort of precedent whereby the UN would be allowed in? Suspicious minds want to know.

Writer Alex Thomas noted, in an article that appeared on https://www.activistpost.com that: “Boykin then went on to stunningly reveal that he is actually seeking to have the United Nations police the civilian population in Chicago.” While those who have been (mis)labeled as “conspiracy theorists” have believed that UN forces would eventually be sent to police the streets of America, it seems that we now have concrete proof that this is, indeed, the plan. So while the “news” media distracts us with all manner of drivel, and keeps our attention elsewhere, here come the UN troops for Chicago (and eventually other places).

Although this isn’t official yet, it should concern every patriotic American that it is even being discussed–or planned. I will have to check up on Mr. Boykin’s political background to see if I can determine where he is coming from. If I find anything worthwhile I will update this.

In the meantime, if you really want to find out where the UN is coming from I would recommend doing a little homework. I know folks just hate to read nowadays. Their “public school” educations have taught them to hate to read, but often you have to read to learn.

Check out an excellent book by G. Edward Griffin, who has a website on the internet. The book is The Fearful Master–A second look at the United Nations. It was published way back in 1964. You can check Amazon for it or it might even be on the internet. Another good one is Freedom on the Alter–The UN’s Crusade Against God & Family by William Norman Grigg, and I am pretty sure I’ve seen this one on Amazon.

Once you begin to understand where the UN is really coming from you will understand why UN troops are the last people you want being responsible for law and order on the streets of America–in Chicago or anywhere else!

Update: From http://www.intellihub.com on 12/20/17–

WCKG 1530 AM radio station operator Matt Dubiel claims that The Alex Jones Show radio feed was cut off,  “faded,” as Jones started speaking about the U.N. vehicles which have already entered Chicago.Additionally, (Shepard) Ambellas, Intellihub’s founder noted on Dec 16 that “Cook County Commissionar Richard Boykin and his team met with the Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations on Friday to request the organization deploy armed troops into the streets in an effort to curb violent crime and sidestep Posse comitatus ” which is supposed to prevent foreign troops from being deployed in this country.

Station operator Matt Dubiel stated that he spotted a trainload of U.N. vehicles entering the city of Chicago back in August and when he pulled off the road to get some video of it he was followed and arrested. If this is accurate this would mean that the U.N. vehicles were already there and are now ready to be deployed in whatever game the Deep State boys have been working on while most of us slept!

Trump Gone By Christmas?

by Al Benson Jr.

Back in July the Democrats (with subtle Republican help) pushed a bill to remove Trump from office by use of the 25th Amendment. It didn’t float back then, but the Deep State is nothing if not persistent when it comes to carrying out its agenda to Make America Last. So they are considering another go at it. Recently we had a Democratic (socialist?) congressman introduce a bill to impeach Trump. Naturally at this point it failed, and I think he realized it would, but the plan was to get the idea out there in front of people so when it came up again, (as it will) people would have been conditioned to the idea.

Now there is all manner of stuff on the internet this evening about how the Deep State has planned to make sure Trump is out of office by Christmas. These people are cultural Marxists. They don’t quit until their objective is obtained–something those on our side have not even begun to grasp yet.

Lots of people think, with the Republicans in the majority in Congress, this would never happen. Don’t be too sure. Just because someone wears the label of “Republican” doesn’t mean for a New York minute that he is not part of the Deep State or a raving liberal, or worse yet, a quiet, subtle liberal who hates what Trump has been doing and wants desperately to put it all back to where it would have been if Hillary had been elected.

The real name of the game is to get Trump out of office any way they have to so they can begin to dismantle all he has done and give back to us the socialist garbage Obama left us with. To them that would be Nirvana.

One of those who wants Trump gone noted, awhile back, that “This is a president who seems increasingly at odds with everyone and everything around him.” The reason for that might just be that Trump is beginning to realize that those he has surrounded himself with do not have his best interests at heart, nor do they have the best interests of the country and its people at heart.

You only have a week now until Christmas. So keep your eye on what happens in Washington in that week.

The Deep State is working on a coup that will remove your president and his agenda and will put you back into the hands of Hillary and her handlers.

For all his faults, Trump has a vision that will help ordinary Americans to build better lives for themselves and their families. The Deep State does not want you to have that!  They want you under their thumb–or their jackboot, whichever they can reach you with first!

Ultimately, their war is not with Trump–it is with you (and me).

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???

Why Our Kids Never Went To Public School

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

In the main filing cabinet in my office I have three bulging folders of material collected over the years from the early 1970s until now. These three folders contain all manner of material I have collected or people have sent me about the ongoing aberrations that take place in what all thinking people realize is our government school system. It’s not a “public” school system; it’s a government school system. This material comes from all over the country. Some of this stuff would really singe your eyeballs, and if you are like me, you can’t read more than a little of it at a time without getting really ticked off. What some government school systems do to our kids is nothing short of criminal.

I have come to the conclusion, after over forty years of keeping tabs on this kind of thing, that these aberrations are what government education in this country is really all about. When I say that I am not indicting everyone who has ever taught in a government school. We have a niece in Illinois that teaches in one. She’d much rather teach in a Christian school, but she can’t find one in her area that pays a living wage so she does what she has to to survive.

I will make one observation here and then move on. For several decades now we have had “sex education” in government schools in this country. Many have wondered where this idea came from. I know one source. In reading up on cultural Marxism for a speech I have to give later this month, I found that, way back in the early 1900s, a Hungarian Communist named Georg Lukacs was looking for one possible way to help tear down Western civilization. According to author and lecturer William Lind, Lukacs found it. Lind stated: “That same year, when he became Deputy Commissar for Culture in the short-lived Bolshevik Bela Kun government in Hungary, one of Lukac’s first acts was to introduce sex education into Hungary’s public schools. He knew that if he could destroy the West’s traditional sexual morals, he would have taken a giant step toward destroying Western culture itself”. It would be interesting for some honest researcher who had the time to go back and trace what Lukacs did and follow the thread down to America’s government schools today.

When I started collecting all this info on government education I was also just beginning to learn about what was really going on in this country and in the world. My wife and I had a two-year old son and we wondered, with all that we were learning, how we were going to be able to educate him in such a way as to avoid all the perversity   we were reading about that seemed to permeate government education. Later on our daughter came along, which magnified our concerns.

The learning process wasn’t over, however, by a long shot. There was much more to come. Some if it is still coming. The learning process never stops. And one is not always enchanted with the things he learns about.

In September of 1974, we took a short trip to Oklahoma, close to the area I had briefly lived in during the late 1960s. I have never forgotten what happened after we got home from that trip because it changed our lives. It was a Sunday evening and my wife was cooking supper in the kitchen. I was sitting at the kitchen table (we’ve never been fancy enough folks to have a dining room) reading the Chicago Sun Times for September 29, 1974. An article on page 5 really caught my eye. To this day I have kept a copy of it. The title of it was Battle of the books in fundamentalist lion’s den. It went into a situation that, up to that point, I had not even been aware of–the Textbook Protest going on in Kanawha County, West Virginia. I read the article, then reread it, and said to my wife “the way this article trashes these book protesters, they must be doing something right.” They were, but you couldn’t expect the “news” media ever to admit that. Forty three years later most of them still don’t admit it. The media painted the book protesters as racist rednecks who didn’t have enough good sense to appreciate what the virtuous government school system was doing for their kids. The problem for the government school system was that the parents were beginning to realize what the government school system was trying to do to their kids and not for them and they definitely didn’t appreciate it. I’ve seen some of the stuff out of some of those books and I would not have wanted our kids to be subjected to it. So I felt the parents were right to resist, which, I suppose, makes me a redneck too.

With the help of the one honest, dedicated lady on the school board, Alice Moore, the parents were starting to find out just where the government school system they had always just blindly trusted their kids to planned to take those kids. They were not thrilled! In fact, the government education system in Kanawha County was so far out of sync with parental values (as it was in all the rest of the country also) that the parents picketed the government schools when school started in the Fall of 1974. Most kids stayed home. The local “news” media tried to sit on all this as long as they could, to confine it to the local area, but something like this can only be kept quiet for so long and the word got out. Had they had the Internet back then it would have happened much quicker.

Through the Summer and Fall of 1974 there followed a series of marches and rallies and some of the activity over the protest spilled over into 1975. In September of  1975 our family and my brother’s family moved to Kanawha County. By this time we had learned enough about the government school system to realize that you were never going to reform it and get it back to what many folks fondly called “the good old days.” If you couldn’t reform it, the next best option was to secede from it, which is still the most viable option. One good thing that came out of that protest was the formation of several new Christian schools in Kanawha County, and while, eventually, most kids wound up back in government schools, not all did.

As I continued to research and read, I eventually got books by Samuel Blumenfeld and R. J. Rushdoony, both of whom had studied and researched far more than I ever could. From what I read in their books, I began to realize, as I learned the history of government schools in this country, that they had a bad beginning–literally from day one! The government school system in this country was the febrile brainchild of Unitarians and socialists right from the start, And, if that was the beginning, then what, pray tell, could you “reform” it back to? There never were any “good old days” for the government school system. There were only days when the Leftist radicalism was less apparent than it is now. The government school system started with the basic premise of undercutting the influence that church schools had been having on the education of children in the North. In the South it had never really taken hold as it had in the North, where it became mandated as a required institution–compulsory public education–right out of Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto.

I can see, as I go along, that this article is going to take more than one part, so I will wind up the first installment here except to note, regarding the Textbook Protest in West Virginia, for those who would like to read a little more in depth on it, I would recommend a book you can still get on Amazon, written by a former public school teacher, Karl Priest. It is called Protester Voices–The 1974 Textbook Tea Party. If you want to know what really happened there, I would recommend this book, because, even today, there are precious few media outlets that, when writing about this, will give you the real truth. Karl’s book will give you the real truth and you need to know the real truth.

To be continued.
