“Cump” Sherman–A Yankee/Marxist Prototype of the cultural Marxist

by Al Benson Jr.

Anyone who has read any amount of the material I have written, either in my newsletter The Copperhead Chronicle or in articles on the Internet,  knows that I have employed the term Yankee/Marxist on more than one occasion. One of my readers, one time, asked me if using the term Yankee/Marxist wasn’t redundant. He had a point. However, my use of the term, redundant though it may be, is to amplify in people’s minds the truth that the Yankee, for the most part, has a Marxist worldview. He mostly has no use for the God of the Bible, whose Son and Holy Spirit he would vociferously deny, and he has no use for the concept of private property (except his own) and his agenda during the War of Northern Aggression was always “steal all you can carry off and destroy the rest. I suppose it needs to be stated here that by the term “Yankee” I am not referring to all Northerners, of which, though I have a Confederate ancestor, I am one.

The Yankee/Marxist’s was to “free the slaves” was a noble-sounding rationale and cover for his rape and pillage of the South, on several different levels, and his main effort was to make sure that his “god” in Washington (the federal government)  was forever worshiped and bowed down to. His cultural Marxist progeny today will even admit this if you pay strict attention to what they say.  One of the more well-known among them, Newt Gingrich, recently made a statement on television in which he said: “We fought a civil war to establish one sovereignty, the U.S. government.” Well, so much for “freeing the slaves” right? That was a good cover story, but Mr. Gingrich slipped up when he told the truth here–and tell the truth he did!

The Yankee/Marxist simply could not abide freedom and liberty for anyone. Everyone needed to be totally regulated and constantly supervised–for his own good naturally. He had an overriding compulsion to control people’s lives and make them do what he felt was the right thing–even if they did not feel like doing what he thought was right and proper, why then, he’d work to pass a law that made people do what he wanted. After all, he knew best. His cultural Marxist children still do the same thing today. Obama Care is a prime example and firearms registration (and eventual confiscation) is yet another.

That William Tecumseh Sherman shared this worldview can be seen from many of his comments over the years. In his book Citizen Sherman Michael Fellman has duly noted Sherman’s propensity toward military dictatorship on pages 80, 87, 131, 147, and 184.

Presently, I am in the midst of reading an interesting book by Winston Groom called Vicksburg 1863 in which Mr. Groom details all that went on in the Yankee attempt(s) to capture Vicksburg during the War. It was quite an extensive operation that lasted over a year  and went into several attempts by various methods, to take the city (all of which failed) until the final siege of the city ended it all. Sherman figured prominently in some of these efforts.

In discussing Southerners and their resistance to Northern “benevolence” Sherman said: “This is a larger class than most men supposed and they are the most dangerous set of men this war has turned loose upon the world. They are splendid riders, first-rate shots, and utterly reckless. These men must all be killed or (imprisoned) by use before we can hope for peace.” A quote from page 34. You will note that Sherman’s “final solution” to dealing with anyone that did not conform to his will was extermination. He took the same tack with the Indians in the West after the War was over (if they don’t do what we want then kill ’em all). Ol’ Cump Sherman was a real humanitarian–in the same mode as Joseph Stalin–who may have learned some lessons from Sherman.

It bothered Sherman that, when the Yankees took Memphis, most folks there were not real happy at his arrival in their fair city. If they expressed that in any tangible way, he retaliated,  gentle soul that he was. Mr. Groom noted: “First he threatened to close any church–and this included virtually all of them–whose minister or priest refused to offer a Sunday prayer to the president of the United States, whom they reviled. Next he began expelling from their homes the wives and families of rebel soldiers and sympathizers in reprisal for Confederates shooting at Union gunboats operating on the Mississippi…On September 24th he ordered the town of Randolph, Tennessee burned to the ground in retaliation for people firing on U.S. vessels and also, for the same reason, commanded the immolation of all homes, farms and outbuildings for fifteen miles down the Arkansas side of the river opposite Memphis.” And Mr. Groom noted, in this context, “These seem to be the earliest of Sherman’s pyromaniacal  urges in connection with Southern civilians and their property, but by a long shot they were not his last.” This quote from page 182. It almost seems like an understatement!

After reading some of the other things Sherman did during the War, I seriously wonder if he wasn’t a closet pyromaniac and the War gave him an opportunity to flaunt his aberrant behavior that he had not had previously–and after all, it was only Southern private property, along with war material, that he destroyed, and only Southerners that he turned out to starve and freeze when his bummers burned everything they couldn’t carry away. No problem there, right?  Naturally the authors of what passes for our “history” books don’t feel anyone really needs to know all this, so they just leave most of it out, except for a vague reference here or there, the same way they leave out all the information about all the Marxists in Lincoln’s armies, and in the Republican Party. Nothing to see here folks, just move along, and don’t look too close!

So Sherman may not have been, technically speaking, a cultural Marxist.Most of those we refer to as cultural Marxists did not enter the picture until the early 1900s with the advent of the Frankfurt School, as we have noted in other articles, but Sherman was most definitely a Yankee/Marxist and they can rationally be considered as the 19th century prototype for the cultural Marxists that were to follow them.

The aim of the cultural Marxists is to water down and ultimately destroy Christianity and to rid the world of that horrible curse known as Western Civilization, which has its base in Christianity. This is one reason the cultural Marxists never quit. Their agenda calls for the destruction of the Christian faith and its Triune God and replacing the Trinity with their own “god,” a collectivist, centralized tyranny that they call the “revolution of the proletariat.”  And lest you think this is a new struggle within the past 100 years or so, or even back as far as the French Revolution, this struggle goes all the way back to Genesis 3 in the Holy Bible.

Was the Malheur Wildlife Refuge Incident a Federal Sting Operation?

by Al Benson Jr.

For a change this has been a good week. Given our culturally Marxist regime in Washington and the wannabees in most of our state capitals, us ordinary folks don’t experience many good weeks anymore. So we should be thankful to the Lord when He gives us one.

To start off, in a typically culturally Marxist move in Fredericksburg, Virginia, the usual culture destroyers were at it again (they never stop). A local college sociology professor and some of his students wanted to get the City Council of Fredericksburg to rename Jefferson Davis Highway there because, after all, Davis was a slaveowner. They got one  city councilman to propose a motion on that, but the effort rather fell apart when they couldn’t even get a second for the motion from anyone else on the City Council. And so, Jeff Davis Highway in Fredericksburg remains Jeff Davis Highway–at least until the next attempt to change it comes along, or until after the election.

And in the same vein, for whatever reason, the FBI has decided to reopen the Hillary email case they had blandly smoothed over last July when the recommended no indictment for Hillary.  That was expected. This wasn’t. Something happened, somehow, to make the FBI think they had to revisit this, with only 12 days until the election. Who knows what indigestion rumbles around in the bowels of the Establishment, but something happened to force them to reopen this can of political worms. Was it Wikileaks? Proof that the Lord does answer prayer. We will see what He will allow to happen in this situation.

But the one that really caught my attention, probably because I have spent time in the West and followed the Sagebrush Rebellion over the years, was the result of the trial of the folks in Portland, Oregon known as “the Malheur 7.” Two of these seven were Ammon and Ryan Bundy, whose family I wrote about in several articles on this blog back in April of 2014 during the Bundy Ranch standoff. Check my articles on this blog for April of 2014. There are ten of them, all about the Bundy Ranch situation in Nevada.

The Malheur 7 have been on trial in Portland, Oregon for their occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Oregon. This was the tragic situation that resulted in the FBI gunning down Lavoy Finnicum at a roadblock while he was on his way to a peaceful meeting. They claimed he pulled a gun–so they shot him nine times. See the article on this blog for January 31, 2016. Personally, from what I have read about Mr. Finnicum and seen in the videos he has made, you will pardon me if I find the FBI’s account of this rather dubious. These are the same people who shot Randy Weaver’s wife in the head while she stood holding a child in her arms at Ruby Ridge in Idaho. Anyone remember Ruby Ridge? It really must have taken a brave man to shoot a woman holding a child. I understand he got a medal for that–so you will understand why I have some reservations as to their sterling qualities.

The court trial in Portland in which the Bundys were tried, along with five others,was, in my opinion, payback for the Bundy Ranch situation over two years ago.

Almost no one who followed this trial, from what I have read, expected anything other than a guilty verdict. As I have read about the occupation of the wildlife refuge on and off over the months, I was convinced that this was one situation the Bundys and their friends should have passed up. The adverse publicity they got from this was designed to portray them as the devil incarnate, given what the “news” media does to those who stand on patriotic principles.

The “Just Us” Department alleged some things during the trial they presented no evidence for, and their contention that the Bundys and the others were terrorizing the people who worked there seemed to have no basis in fact, but with the Feds, such is no surprise.

An article on http://www.lewrockwell.com for October 28th, by Roger I. Roots, noted the following: “The U S Justice Department alleged in Count 1 that the seven defendants (and many others) had engaged in an ‘armed standoff’ at the federal wildlife refuge with the intent of scaring away the various government employees who normally work there. Every defendant was utterly innocent of this allegation…In fact, Ammon Bundy and the other defendants took a monumental (and quite daring) stand for the plain text of the Constitution when they occupied the Malheur Refuge in January of this year. They pointed to Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17 of the U S Constitution which seems to plainly forbid the federal government from owning land inside the states unless the states agree to sell such real estate to the federal government.  Needless to say, the present reality in the American west is in sharp contrast to this piece of the constitutional text. The feds claim to own and control millions of acres of land in the western states–most of which (such as the Malheur Refuge area) was never purchased from state legislatures or anyone else.” So where do the feds get the authority to do all this? Why they just assume it–because no one else has the power to refuse their “requests.” So whatever you think of the Constitution (and many of us are not totally enthralled with it) the Bundys felt they had a clear and consistent understanding of what it said and that’s what they operated on.

However, the thing that made me wonder if this whole thing was, indeed, a federal sting operation, was what Mr. Roots said toward the end of his article. He stated that: “Most startling of all were the undercover government informants that were revealed in the trial. After weeks of wrangling and arguing with defense lawyers, the Justice Department finally stipulated that at least nine undercover informants were planted among the Refuge occupiers. Thus, informants outnumbered the defendants on trial. One informant was even a bodyguard for Ammon Bundy and drove him to his arrest. Another informant admitted he trained occupiers in shooting and combat skills.” In my opinion when you have more informants than defendants, something doesn’t smell right. And when you have one of the informants training the occupiers in shooting skills and combat techniques it definitely doesn’t smell right–in fact it stinks outright! At what point did these informants become involved? Were they there at the beginning? Did they have a part in the planning of this operation?

I don’t know all the facts in this case, but I wonder who got the Bundys involved in it to begin with–and were the people that got them into it among the informants? If so, then this constitutes what we call a sting operation–getting someone to take part in something “illegal” they ordinarily wouldn’t have done unless you conned them into it and then you busted them for doing what you had conned them into.

It appears, though, that the jury in this case saw through all the federal chicanery because it acquitted all seven defendants, much to the pleasant surprise of many of us and to the chagrin of those in the Federal Establishment, who, I am sure, will now seek to find some other way to punish these folks for daring to defend their rights.

If Hillary Wins the Ethnic Cleansing WILL Continue (and “Reconstruction” WILL be ongoing)

by Al Benson Jr.

As we draw closer to the cooler weather of Autumn in the year of our Lord 2016, many think, especially in the South, that they and their heritage have survived yet another “long hot Summer” and now that it’s over they can go back to sleep for the Winter. This is a serious delusion for them to labor under–because it is as false as Hillary’s campaign rhetoric about her deep respect for the Second Amendment.

The ethnic cleansing campaign of the cultural Marxist Leftists has not abated, nor with the current “election” (selection) coming up, will it. If (some folks say “when”) Hillary “wins” the election, by hook or by crook (probably mostly by crook)  you will see another strong thrust in the “reconstruction” agenda, probably one of the strongest you have seen since Obama’s first year, back when he promised to “fundamentally transform” the United States. Has it ever occurred to anyone that what Obama was talking about was yet another phase of “reconstruction?” And because he and Hillary, in spite of all the huggy-kissy  stuff the “news” media spins out there for you on TV, really hate each others guts, she will try to outdo what he did so she can claim she had to finish what he started. You see, even though many on the Left loathe each other,  they are willing to work together to cut our throats, culturally and otherwise, while we on the Right prefer to fight with one another over jots and tittles rather than engaging those who would purge our culture from the face of the earth. As perverse as they are, the Leftists know how to work together when it is necessary. We have not begun to figure that out yet, much less attempt it. And in the mix we have many “Republicans,” so called, who, in spite of their conservative rhetoric, work to make sure we never do figure it out.

There was an article on http://www.wnd.com on the 20th of last May, written by Curtis Ellis, called The Radical Left’s Ethnic Cleansing Of America.  Mr. Ellis informed us that Hillary and Obama try to make us believe the disappearing jobs in this country are something that is inevitable in “the new global economy.” Donald Trump doesn’t buy that pile of cow chips and neither do I.

Mr. Ellis observed, and quite accurately I believe, that, “…the radical left planned the liquidation of white, blue collar working families…in order to ‘fundamentally transform’ America. The decimation of America’s middle class and industrial strength is a case of murder, not accidental death. It was done with premeditation, malice and forethought. The latest evidence comes from Thomas Frank, a man of the left and former Wall Street Journal columnist. His new book, Listen Liberal, exposes how the radical left, the Clinton family and Wall Street deliberately liquidated the white working class of America.”

One of the first ways they did this was to infiltrate the labor unions, purging men who actually worked for a living from influential positions and replacing them with “upper middle class activists…” They did the same thing in the Democratic Party until it represented only the far left.

And, of course, to make this really successful, you had to do it in the South, and the South already had a mostly Christian foundation that those people hated with a purple passion. A few psy-ops operations down here using “useful idiots” waving Confederate flags worked wonders when the media spun it the right way. The situation in Charleston, South Carolina in June of 2015 was a prime example.

Wesley Pruden wrote an article for http://www.washingtontimes.com back on June 25th, 2015 in which he noted: “This fit of ethnic cleansing was inevitable, given the popularity of getting ourselves politically correct, which has grown from a cottage industry, employing mostly family and intimate friends, to a great industry embracing the likes of Amazon, Wal-Mart and eBay…What started with palpitations and occasional fainting spells at the sight of a Confederate flag, has become a nationwide search for something, anything, to bring on a cleansing fit of hysterics.” When Rush Limbaugh said, at that point, that what had happened to the Confederate flag would eventually happen to the US flag everyone snickered. Now I don’t always agree with Rush Limbaugh, but in this instance, he was right on the money. Since his comments we have seen the cultural Marxists go after the US flag, the Gadsden flag, even the original Betsy Ross flag– all because they were all “racist” or “non-inclusive” or for whatever lame-brained reason they could conjure up at the time. But, for whatever reason, they all have to go. And Western culture and civilization also has to go. White culture must go–to be replaced with black culture, brown culture, purple culture with green spots, or whatever “culture” is deemed the best qualified to replace white culture–immediately if not sooner!

In the course of all this, Mr. Pruden brought up an interesting point. He observed that, as long as “racist” flags and monuments have to go–what about the Lincoln Memorial? He noted that “Honest” Abe “described himself as a white supremacist in language a Klansman could admire.” And if you think that statement is untrue, then you need to read The Lincoln/Douglas Debates. I assure you that Mr. Pruden knows whereof he speaks.

If you are naive enough to think the cultural Marxists have forgotten about you or don’t care what you do or say, then read an article by Kristinn Taylor on http://www.thegatewaypundit.com for July 7th of 2015, where she quotes an article from Politico Magazine by contributing editor Michael Lind.  Lind’s article describes the South as “Jesusland” and it states that the South “keeps the US down by its faith in God…” That should show you where the mindset of this publication is at. Politico whines about the fact that “conservative, religious white Southerners” are stopping the US  from “being more like Britain, Canada, and other liberal, English speaking democracies.” And Taylor observes: “The article concludes with the hope that the South will be ethnically and culturally cleansed by immigrants from other countries and liberals relocating from other parts of the US.” From that one statement alone do you begin to understand the Obama/Clinton/One World Government agenda for first your Southland and then for the rest of the country. While you sit bemused with your reality shows the Leftists are working at ways to do you  and your grandchildren in. Is that getting through to you yet??? They couldn’t say it any plainer!

So if (when) Hillary ascends to the regal throne in Washington, you can bet that “reconstruction” that never really ended, will be ongoing, because all of us nasty white Christian Southerners have to be expunged from this part of the country, and eventually from the rest as well–but first the South, then the West, and all the rest will fall into line after that.

One final thought occurs to me. If you want to work to forestall or prevent this, find yourself a good conservative Christian Church–one that advocates families having lots and lots of kids. The culture you save with lots of offspring, Christian-educated offspring, just may be your own.

How About a Little Damage Control?

by Al Benson Jr.

Last week the Democratic Party  was supposedly in a shambles. The web site http://thehornnews.com had an article posted for August 2nd that said, in part, “The Democratic Party is in the middle of a leadership purge that could affect the landscape of the 2016 election. Three more top Democratic Party officials have resigned today in the wake of an embarrassing email hack.”

Ahh, but that was then and this is now.

The Democrats looked pathetically bad, with party officials being thrown under the bus with amazing regularity.

On the same say all this was happening there was also an article on http://www.1776coalition.com by Gabrielle Levy which had Trump saying “I’m afraid the election’s going to be rigged, I have to be honest,…” In light of the Clintons’ reputation I didn’t think that was an outlandish statement, but apparently the Republican Establishment did because on the Horn News for August 3rd appeared an article which was headlined “Traitors! RNC pushing Trump to quit.” This article said, again in part, “The report, from an anonymous GOP source, stated that senior party insiders are so upset and baffled by Trump’s erratic behavior that they are preparing a back-up plan for replacing him on the ballot before the November general election.” Almost sounds like something they’ve had in play for awhile.

So, in two days, we have gone from a Democratic Party in shambles over all of Hillary’s leaded emails to the Republican Establishment planning to replace Trump because of “erratic” behavior. At least this is what the “news” media is telling up. Of course how much actual truth you ever get from them is always up for grabs, but looking at this entire scenario and taking it from Democratic ruin on Monday to Trump’s possible mental condition on Wednesday, it begins to smell to me like good old fashioned damage control for Hillary. They needed something to take the spotlight off of her and to focus it somewhere else so people would, in a few days, forget all about her email indiscretions and have something else to chatter about. And in typical Marxist fashion, if they can pull this off, they will kill two birds with one stone–bury Hillary’s email problems and cut Trump’s political throat all in one fell swoop! And the prostitute press are more than willing accomplices.

Unfortunately, so is the Republican National Committee–but then, if the truth be known, they always have been. Trump was not supposed to win the nomination. One of the other 16 political shills running against him was, and the Republicans weren’t too fussy which one, although they’d rather have had a Bush or a Romney than a Rand Paul, but they’d have lived with a Rand Paul if necessary. No way can they co-exist with Trump and they have been looking for some way, any way, to deep six him since long before the Republican convention. All you have to do to realize this is to have followed their actions and comments and you could have told that the real agenda has always been “anyone but Trump.”

Just because he won the nomination didn’t change their Marxist mindsets–and please, don’t try to tell me all the Republicans are conservatives. Some are, but not many. When you talk like a conservative but vote like a Marxist, then you’re a Marxist, possibly different from the Democratic Marxists only in degree and false rhetoric.

It’s like I have said so many times before–the same leftist Council on Foreign Relations/Trilateral Commission clique in Washington and New York controls both parties at the leadership levels.  The only question we might ask, in light of recent articles  I’ve done, is who controls the CFR and the Trilateralists?  As high up as they are, they ain’t at the top of the totem pole.

So watch what goes on in the next few days. Hillary’s email problems will probably be ancient history and the Republican Establishment will attempt to find a way to replace Trump with yet another political stooge who will make sure it’s business as usual–and that Hillary wins. That’s the real name of the game.

So what will all the folks that voted for and supported Trump end up doing when they find they have no real voice at all as all this goes down?  Probably not as much as we could hope for.

“Civil Rights” Morphs Into Anti-White Discrimination And “Transgender” Rights–Part Two

by Al Benson Jr.

As previously stated the “Civil Rights Movement” was mostly not the noble crusade it has been painted as by a compliant “news” media. If anything it was an exercise in class struggle and a vehicle to feather certain political nests over on the far left. In his book It’s Very Simple–The True Story of Civil Rights author and investigative reporter Alan Stang noted, on page 97, that: “…There are in the United States two kinds of ‘Negro Leaders’: the violents and the ”. non-violents. The violents want to destroy the United States and set up their own nation on part of it. All the non-violents want is integration. Americans of all colors are going to get one or the other, they are told,  so they’d better take the integration. If they don’t, they’ll get the self-determination, and that’s bound to be unpleasant. In other words, if the violents make a riot, and the non-violent Rev. Galamison doesn’t get what he wants,  the violents will probably make a bigger riot. If you wanted to define it in one word you’d pick the word ‘entortion’.” That’s what a lot of the “Civil Rights” Movement was built on. This is not new. The same principle was used in the labor union movement. So most people, in an attempt to do the right and peaceful thing, picked integration. Has that choice solved the race problem?  Hardly! It wasn’t intended to. So we got the integration and the riots right along with it–and now blatant anti-white discrimination and the perverted “transgender” movement have become new “civil rights.”

So exactly what are the “civil rights” of the white majority? Why they have the “civil right” to put up with all this, and to pay for all the cleanup from all the riots they got along with the “peaceful” integration!

Opportunistic liberal (socialist) white politicians played the “Civil Rights” game for all it was worth, and now black “Civil Rights” pimps are playing the same game. Roger Stone, in his book The Man Who Killed Kennedy–the Case Against LBJ  noted, on page 8 that: “The Kennedy civil rights record is also a myth. JFK mined for black votes in 1960. His bold call to Dr. King’s wife when King was jailed in Selma…brought the important endorsement of Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. and a major swing of black voters against Nixon…Yet JFK would drag his feet on civil rights…The open housing and voting rights acts promised by JFK were late in coming and stalled in Congress when he was killed.” And LBJ was not averse to playing the “Civil Rights” game for his own advantage.  On page 33 of Mr. Stone’s book he observes: “Kessler shared some of LBJ’s jaw-dropping racial slurs in a book called Inside the White House.  An Air Force One crew member stated that the President had his own opinions about the Civil Rights Movement ones that were the complete opposite of his public actions to make America a ‘Great Society,’ and he blatantly shared them with anyone within earshot…In a meeting aboard Air Force One, shortly after signing the Civil Rights Act, he was pleased to promise two governors: ‘I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years’.” So it seems that black leaders were willing to use white liberal (socialist) politicians to get what they wanted and the white liberals were doing the same thing to them to further their own ends. Everybody used everybody. When you stop and think about it, this kind of reduces the “nobility” of the “Civil Rights” Movement to something slightly less than altruistic.

Now however people in the 1960s used the Civil Rights Movement for class struggle and for their own advantages, you have to admit that this movement, as it is interpreted in our day, has come a long long way, baby. Now it’s being used as the   reason to promote all manner of sexual perversion from sodomy to “transgender” rights.

When the State of North Carolina passed a common sense statute to keep “transgender” men out of women’s public restrooms it received a stinging rebuke from our current Marxist-in-Chief and his :”Just Us Department” as presently administered by Comrade Holder’s successor, Commissar Lynch. A World Net Daily  article for 5/5/16 stated: “In North Carolina, lawmakers adopted a law in March requiring people to use gender-designated public facilities that correspond to the gender listed on their driver’s license. The aim was to protect women from being confronted by a naked man. But the U.S. Department of Justice this week threatened the state with financial penalties, claiming the law violates the 1964 Civil Rights Act. That argument presumes Congress, in 1964, wanted men to be allowed to use womens’ restrooms and locker rooms and vice versa, which is ridiculous, contends Kellie Fiedorek, a legal counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, which specializes in civil and religious rights.” But all that doesn’t matter. Our current ruler is absolutely fixated on making sure “transgender” men get to use women’s bathrooms and the only thing that seems to concern him more is that he has not yet been able to find a way to disarm honest citizens and gut the Second Amendment. But don’t worry, he’s working on that one, too. In case you might, in your wildest fantasy, be tempted to ask about the “civil rights” of honest gun owners, please don’t bother. Their “civil rights” in the area of the Second Amendment will be abridged as soon as he can manage to find some way to do  it that sounds even quasi-legal.

And his co-dependent that heads up the :”Just Us Department” is working overtime to push whatever he says and to threaten those that do not agree. You have to understand that those who disagree with the edicts of the federal government, legal or not, their “civil rights” are automatically suspect, and if Commissar Lynch can find a way to suspend them she will. The one “civil right” you have is to comply with everything the federal government expects of you. Anything beyond that is “open to negotiation” depending on how compliant you are willing to be.

So just stay tuned, folks.  You will be surprised what the 1964 Civil Rights Act allows before you are done. And while those that rammed it through would probably be surprised at where it has gone and how it is now being used, I’m sure most of them would not disagree. They would probably, from their seats in the hottest of all possible places in hell, say, “Why didn’t we think of that?”

Robert Lewis Dabney and the Forty-Eighters

by Al Benson Jr.

Many in our day, some of them so-called “historians” have sought to paint the Old South as a land of bigotry, ignorance, and treason.  They do this either because of gross ignorance, which was foisted upon them in public schools, or because they have an agenda that is geared toward the total destruction of any and all Southern culture, particularly Christian Southern culture. Everything that existed before the Beatles except slavery and the “civil rights” movement must be expunged, while these must be preserved in order to promote the proper amount of “white guilt.”

Robert Lewis Dabney, one of the most remarkable of the Southern Presbyterian theologians and a man who served on Stonewall Jackson’s staff had the presence of mind to recognize what was going on in this country even before the start of the War of Northern Aggression, and he, unlike some of his contemporaries, understood  what it was really all about. With the discernment he possessed in so many areas you might almost say he was the Patrick Henry of his day.  He had that rare ability Henry had in noting what the results of various actions would be if pursued to their logical conclusions.  He correctly foresaw where both the public education movement and the women’s “rights” movement were going while theological contemporaries like Henry Ward Beecher in the North were indulging in theological  “reality shows.”

Rev. Dabney early recognized what was going on in Europe and its implications for this country, particularly the South. He noted some of this in his masterful biography of the life of Stonewall Jackson, published in 1866, and subsequently republished by Sprinkle Publications of Harrisonburg, Virginia in 1983.

In this volume of over 700 pages he observed, quite correctly, on page 159, that: “History will some day place the position of these Confederate States, in this high argument, in the clearest light of her glory.  The cause they undertook to defend was that of regulated, constitutional liberty,  and of fidelity to laws and covenants,  against the licentious violence of physical power. The assumptions they resisted were preciously those of that radical democracy, which deluged Europe with blood at the close of the eighteenth century, and which shook its thrones again in the convulsions of 1848; the agrarianism which, under the name of equality, would subject all the rights of individuals to the will of the many, and acknowledge no law nor ethics, save the lust of that mob which happens to be the larger. This power, which the old States of Europe expended such rivers of treasure and  blood to curb, at the beginning of the century, had transferred its immediate designs across the Atlantic, was consolidating itself anew in the Northern States of America, with a wealth, an organization, an audacity, an extent, to which it never aspired in the lands of its birth, and was preparing to make the United States,  after crushing all law there under its brute will, the fulcrum under whence  they should extend their lever to upheave  every legitimate throne on the Old World. Hither, by emigration, flowed the radicalism, discontent, crime, and poverty of Europe,  until the people of the Northern States became, like the rabble of imperial Rome…” Reflect on what Dabney has said here. Really, how different is it than what we are currently experiencing in this country” Does anyone see the parallels? They are amazing!

Dabney continued: “The miseries and vices of their early homes had alike taught them to mistake licence for liberty, and they were incapable of comprehending, much more of loving, the enlightened structure of English or Virginian freedom.  The first step in their vast designs was to overwhelm the Conservative States of the South.  This done, they boasted that they would proceed, first, to engross the whole of the American continent, and then to emancipate Ireland, to turn Great Britain into a democracy, to enthrone Red Republicanism in France, and to give the crowns of Germany to the Pantheistic humanitarians of the race, who deify self as the supreme end, and selfish desire, as the authoritative expression  of the Divine Will. This, in truth, was the monster who terrific pathway among the nations, the Confederate States undertook to obstruct, in behalf not only of their own children, but of all the children of men.” This is definitely not a worldview you will get out of your “history” books. What Dabney has done here is to provide you with an outline of the agenda of the One World Government advocates of the 1860s.  And look at who their main opponent was.  Do you begin now to see why anything even remotely Confederate has been and is so much under attack in our day? Stop and think about what Dabney has told you.  This is a struggle that is much more than just North vs. South. In 1861 the Confederate States  stood in the way of the new World Order of their day and said NO! And they have been getting back at us for it ever since! And they will continue to do so unless, in God’s Providence, we prevail, or they do. They will not quit. Neither can we!

And, in this vein, Dabney made another insightful observation when he said: “One half of the prisoners of war, registered by the victorious armies of the South, have been foreign mercenaries. ” So this was much, much more than just a “brothers war” as we have been told. This fact was borne out in research done by Dr. Clyde Wilson, Professor Emeritus of the University of South Carolina, who noted that: “The German revolutionaries brought with them an aggressive drive to realize in America the goals that had been defeated in their homeland.  Their drive toward ‘revolution and national unification’…The most prominent among them, Carl Schurz, expressed disappointment at the non-ideological nature of American politics and vowed to change that.” His spiritual descendants have been working on that ever since. The current occupant of the White House is the most glaring example of the success of their venture.

Donnie Kennedy and I, in our book Lincoln’s Marxists, on page 219, noted that: “In his commentary, Dr. Wilson mentioned the events surrounding a German officer who, after the surrender, buttonholed Confederate General Richard Taylor and proceeded to inform Taylor  that he would soon recognize the gross errors  the South had made in fighting the war.  He informed Taylor, in very broken English, that he would soon rejoice because of the final results of the war. The German seems quite ready to instruct General Taylor on the fine points of Americanism.” This from a European socialist who could barely speak the language,  to a man whose father had been President of the United States! This is socialist arrogance at its finest and it continues to this day. Look at the finger-pointing, condescending attitude we are treated to today from a president that spent a fair part of his life in Indonesia and who we are told has an African father.  Yet his version of “Americanism” sounds like something that hailed from a Middle Eastern caliphate. It’s almost like Fidel Castro giving lessons in American government to Thomas Jefferson!

As previously noted, this struggle is much more than an “unpleasantness” between North and South.  It is, as Presbyterian theologian James Henley Thornwell so truthfully stated: “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.” I don’t think anyone else could have said it any better. This is where we are at right now, and unless we get on our knees and plead, with repentance, for the Lord to guide us in the ways of legitimate resistance, we will lose it all, at least for our time in history.

The Federal Government’s War On the West

by Al Benson Jr.

The federal government and its One World Government advocates in the United Nations and elsewhere are locked in a culture war with the American West in much the same manner as they are with the American South (Dixie). Here in Dixie they simply loathe people who display or carry Confederate flags and who want to preserve their culture.  In the West they loathe and despise  people who wear cowboy hats and boots and who just might work the land for a living. They hate these folks because, with their Marxist worldview, they feel all the land belongs to them and private property is something that should be beyond the pale for anyone (except themselves). The Westerners, their way of life and their culture have to go. There is just no room for them in the “Brave New World” these Marxist mentalities in Washington and New York are “reconstructing” for all of us docile people who don’t know any better than to believe the prevarications they spin out there for us to swallow.

I just yesterday (2/14) read a news article on http://www.newstarget.com  with the headline EXCLUSIVE: FBI sting to arrest 86 Americans in massive BLM cover-up. Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy was arrested on Feb. 10th in Portland, Oregon while stepping off a plane.  Bundy, his family, and a whole bunch of neighbors and some militia people contested the BLM’s right to steal Bundy’s cattle at his ranch in Nevada as part of their agenda of moving him off the land.  Now the feds have arrested him and I expect they will come up with some legal mumbo-jumbo to confiscate his ranch and other property and do whatever they had planned to do with his land while they were trying to get him off.  And I expect they are going to try to “arrest” those that helped him resist the BLM’s machinations back in 2014. One thing you must always remember about these Marxist mentalities (both parties) that run “our” government–like the good little loyal Marxists they are, they never, never forget.  If you end up besting them in some sort of confrontation they will hold the grudge until and beyond the tenth generation. After all, they are still holding the grudge against the South because she dared to secede in 1861. If you think that’s all over just look at what’s going on with Confederate flags down here.

But the plot thickens. The News Target article noted: “While taking up occupancy of the Malheur  Wildlife Refuge, protesters reportedly gained access to sensitive information stored on the computers there, revealing sinister plans by the BLM to confiscate privately owned land with uranium reserves before auctioning it off to foreign interests that have donated to the Clinton Foundation, according to a source that requested anonymity. In an effort to suppress this information, the FBI is believed to be conducting  a nationwide warrant roundup of protesters and independent journalists involved in the recent protests and standoffs against the federal government. A total of 86 people, including Bundy, are believed to be on the FBI’s roundup list and could subsequently be arrested for their ‘crimes’.”

It is observed that the Obama administration is in the midst of a crackdown on journalists that is part of a large-scale federal effort to use political correctness (cultural Marxism) and accusations of “hate speech” in order that they might silence and denigrate First Amendment rights–an effort to destroy citizen journalism, http://obama.fetch.news/

And, of course, you must realize that if the First Amendment goes, then so will the Second, and for that matter, the Tenth. You might be tempted to wonder what Congress will do about all this. Well, they may sit up, stretch, and yawn once or twice, and make some trite statement about how they are opposed to Obamacare and how we should all vote Republican in the next election to defeat those “liberal” Democrats. Don’t look for anything more than that. They gripe about Obamacare, even though they continue to vote to fund it. And you may be tempted to ask–what does Obamacare have to do with this situation? Good question. It’s just their way of saying, (without actually saying it) that they really don’t intend to interfere with whatever he plans to do. His agenda is also their agenda. Which they won’t admit because they need your votes in the next election.

Regarding Malheur Wildlife Refuge, a news page called 21st Century Wire, observed in a January 4, 2016 article that “In 1908 President Theodore Roosevelt, in a political scheme, created an ‘Indian reservation’ around the Malheur, Mud & Harney Lakes and declared it ‘as a preserve and breeding ground for native birds’. Later this ‘Indian reservation’ (without Indians) became the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.”

In 1964, the Hammond family (remember them?) bought the ranch they owned in the Harney Basin. It included “approximately 6000 acres of private property, 4 grazing rights on public land, a small ranch house and 3 water rights. The ranch is around 53 miles south of Burns, Oregon. By the 1970s nearly all the ranches adjacent to the Blitzen Valley were purchased by the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and added to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge covers over 187,000 acres and stretches over 45 miles long and 37 miles wide.  The expansion of the refuge grew and surrounds the Hammond’s ranch. Being approached many times by the FWS, the Hammonds refused to sell. Other ranchers also chose not to sell.” Then the federal fun began. There is way too much to go into here, but suffice it to say the feds made life miserable for those poor souls who had really thought their property was “their” property. The feds are, as I write, still in the process of teaching them otherwise. Just ask yourself–why does the government need a wildlife refuge that is 45 miles long and 37 miles wide? And why do they need it so badly that they have to force people off their land by hook or by crook (mostly crook)?

In this same vein, I came across yet another article on teaparty.org that mentioned our Marxist-in-Chief seizing 1.8 million acres in California for three “national monuments.” This article stated that: “The new monuments will almost double the amount of land Obama has set aside for conservation. It brings the total land and water Obama has unilaterally protected under the Antiquities Act to about 265 million acres, far more than any previous president.” And why not? As a good Marxist Obama realizes that all this land must be shut off from real public use so it can be protected for “the people.” Which means, in the typical Aesopian language the Marxists employ, that real people will be deprived of any real use of it. So you have to wonder what “people” it’s being protected for–those in the Clinton Foundation maybe?

All this land acquisition is destroying the ranching and farming culture of the Far West. Let’s be frank–this is its intention. It is a form of cultural warfare being perpetrated on Western folks and their way of life because the Ruling Elite has made the decision that all this has to join Confederate flags, monuments, and Southern (Christian) culture on the trash heap of history. And besides, there are big bucks to me made off those”public” lands!

After all that I have read and researched in the past several years, I have come to the conclusion that the One World Elite (CFR/Trilateralists) in this country don’t much like us real people and they’d just as soon dispense with us and replace is with illegal immigrants and Middle Eastern “refugees” (terrorists) because these are the people that have been selected to erase American culture–with the help and consent of the federal government. You may not like them apples, but that’s the way it is and you better start getting used to it and start finding out what you can do to forestall it.

I  just posted an article on my other blog spot http://thecopperhead.blogspot.com dealing with the concept that this country is now in a “Pre-revolutionary” moment. Some of the American people are finally beginning to get it. They are beginning to feel they have been pushed far enough by a federal government that, at all its levels, doesn’t give a tinker’s damn about them, has absolutely no concern whatever for their God-given rights, and, in fact, has plans to remove them. Not all of them are willing to go along with that. The question comes to mind–Is it 1860 all over again???
