Eighteen School Shootings This Year? That Number Is Rather Tenuous

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


“Secret Society” in FBI and DOJ? Naw, (except where there is)

by Al Benson Jr.

Back 40-50 years ago there was a big fuss among the liberals, Leftists, and communists (but I repeat myself here) about how the John Birch Society was a “secret society” out to do the country harm, a “secret society” on the Right. Needless to say the Birch Society was never a “secret” society and all that bovine fertilizer about them was just that–an eight letter word we don’t say in polite company. The Birch Society has been an excellent educational organization and I never hesitate to use their documentation in articles because their research is impeccable.

They are the folks that exposed the unelected rulers of American government–the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group, who are, in a sense, this country’s “invisible government” because members of these groups infest government, the “news” media, the military, major universities and all manner of other places that affect the lives of ordinary Americans. These groups all push, in one form or another, some sort of world government where national sovereignty is destroyed. Tower of Babel here we come!

And now, after decades of Leftist psychobabble about rightist “secret societies”, lo and behold, we are being told about one in the FBI/DOJ, infested by Leftists who wanted Clinton elected president instead of Trump. All kinds of testimony seems to be coming out about this secret society in these two governmental agencies. As the man says “you can’t make this stuff up!”

The deliberate attempted destruction of the Trump presidency by these Leftists and those who are financing them seems to be of such gigantic proportions that it makes Seven Days in May or The Manchurian Candidate look like child’s play–a Sunday School picnic!

The American people, minus those on the Far Left and those “useful idiots” they have managed to brainwash, elected Donald Trump to be president. But these Far Left Swamp Creatures and their “running dogs” don’t like what the American people voted for and so they think it is their bounden duty to overturn what we voted for and possibly replace it with (gag!) Hillary and her Loony Left cohorts. In their unlimited wisdom these people think they know better than we do what’s good for us–America last and deepening socialism– and if they can somehow deep six Trump you’d better believe that’s their plan for us. And you can bet the three groups mentioned earlier in this article will all be gung-ho for that scenario. A major part of their One World Government agenda is the total shafting of the American middle class and the destruction of our God-given liberties.

It seems (and I hope it is accurate) that some congressional committees have heard about this FBI/DOJ “secret society” and they plan to investigate it.  Congressman Trey Gowdy stated: “I’m going to want to know what secret society you are talking about, because you are supposed to be investigating objectively who just won the electoral college.” Good statement, but let’s don’t kid ourselves. There has been absolutely nothing objective about this Russian collusion delusion or anything else involving Trump. Mueller’s committee has been busy trying to do a hatchet job on the Trump Administration for almost a year now.

Even one of the most vocal anti-Trumpers involved has had to admit that there “is no there, there.” What he’s saying is that there is really nothing to investigate regarding Trump’s collusion with Russia–it’s all hocus-pocus, smoke and mirrors,  basically a gigantic farce designed to make Trump look bad. And they’re spending millions of our tax dollars to do it. Ain’t that nice?

Unless Trump, somehow, manages to have these people exposed there are people in his own administration working just as hard to unseat him as Hillary ever did. Do you suppose any of them have possibly interlocking memberships in the CFR/Trilateral Commission/Bilderberg Groups? Trump made some lousy choices when picking his team to run the country and he is going to need to get rid of some of these people. One of his chief advisers, H. R. McMaster, belongs to the CFR. That being the case he doesn’t belong in a Trump Administration, and he is only one example.

Lets face it, The Swamp does not want to be drained. It’s denizens enjoy slopping around in the political ooze and they will resist anyone who tries to drain their Homeland and give the American public half a chance. They hate this country, they hate God, they hate YOU! Their agenda is to destroy all three! However, on their way to their own destruction they will make lots of people miserable.

Smart Cars–Do They Equal Agenda 21?

by Al Benson Jr.

Just yesterday or the day before, I watched a news clip on one of the alt.right sites that was talking about the auto show in Las Vegas, Nevada that is going on now.

Now I am not a mechanical person by any means. This kind of thing does not fascinate me. I can remember old Ford Model T’s (my dad had one during the Second World War because there was not anything being made but military vehicles). I remember double-winger planes. There were still some of them around when I was a kid, so I belong to the “old school” I guess. There were even a handful of characters from the Old Western days still alive when I was a kid. So modern I am not, and I am not sure, seeing some of what I see down the road, that I want to be. It seems that much of what is on the horizon will limit what you can do, where you can go, and regulate what you see and do and how far you travel.

I have written in the past about the United Nations’ Agenda 21 project that, supposedly promotes “sustainability” (population regulation) as the way to go. The UN would like to round up all of us rural or country dwellers and force us into little two-by-twice apartments with about 200 feet of living space in huge mega-cities. That way they would prevent us from doing any traveling, especially out in the country and possibly taking any trips to see anyone away from where we live that they might not approve of. They have been trying to get US cities and towns to buy into this UN concept of what amounts to a giant POW camp for the general population. Some places have seen the light and are opting out of this potential UN gulag. Let’s hope more begin to see where this is going.

Some of what the UN is promoting with Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 (the updated version) seems to be evident at this automotive show in Las Vegas. They have a new vehicle on display–a driverless auto that has no steering wheel or brakes. You don’t drive it–it drives you. It’s like a driverless taxi from what I can tell. If you have to go somewhere you call and this vehicle shows up and takes you to your destination and you pay for that with some kind of credit card of whatever, but apparently you don’t own it, you just pay when you need to use it. You can’t steer it, you can’t stop it, like I said, it drives you. As one who has traveled all over this country over the years and we went where we wanted to go, when we wanted to go, I ain’t sure I like this concept at all.

What is the idea behind this? is this supposed to start to curtail the private ownership of automobiles? It seems a step in that direction, along with the idea that people need to be herded into these UN-sponsored gulags and not allowed to go where they want to because going where they want to supposedly endangers the “sustainability” of the area you live in.

And who owns or controls these driverless cars? Some private company? The government? Whoever it is, they will have a record of where you go at all times, whether to the grocery store or to church, or to visit some friend that may have views the government does not approve of, hence you may be added to a list of “interesting” people to be watched.

I have often wondered just how much of the stuff promoted by the federal government anymore is a brainchild of the UN, with their Tower-of Babel delusions of One World government. We know that the UN is responsible for some programs that have been implanted in the public schools in this country. Do a Google search sometime and type in UNESCO and American Public Schools. You may not like what you find.

Even though Donald Trump is president, there are people in his administration that harbor a decided One World government worldview. That’s where they want to take us, whether we want to go there or not. The UN is NOT our friend–but it wants to be our keeper!

I’m not sure where these driverless cars fit into this, but they could be a major part of the program designed to keep us, not down on the farm, but rather out in the local gulag. Driverless cars is not an idea I would embrace and I hope the driving public takes a good look at this concept and gives it a huge thumbs down!

Judas Bannon, Hillary’s House Fire, and Deep State Deception

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Well, we have rocketed into the new year, with weather cold enough to freeze the ears off a brass monkey and growing paranoia amongst the ranks of the Swamp Dwellers in Sodom on the Potomac.

The news today is that the Justice Department may be reopening the case of Hillary’s missing emails (maybe all 33,000 of them). The denizens of the Deep State don’t necessarily want that kind of information floating around out there–unless they are planning on throwing Hillary under the bus, which case might be determined by how much dirt she has on some of them. And let’s face it, over the years the Clintons have amassed a pretty hefty body count!

So, how to distract the general public, us “deplorables, from exercising  too much curiosity in this area. Well, how about the latest Judas, Steve Bannon, all of a sudden deciding that Trump’s son, Donald Jr., committed treason when he met with that female Russian lawyer for a whole ten minutes back in the summer?  That should do it, right? Bannon’s comments were made in a book whose author has been known to stretch the truth somewhat in some instances. Yet you have to wonder, in this case, because Bannon has yet to deny what this guy wrote. If it were inaccurate all Bannon would have to do is say as much–and he hasn’t. So you have to wonder. Bannon’s protestations about how much he loves the president somehow are not quite enough in this instance. However, Bannon’s treachery here gives the deplorables something to drool over instead of Hillary’s missing emails or the Clinton Foundation

Then there is the situation of the “fire” at the Clintons New York home, and some enquiring minds might be tempted to ask just what was destroyed in that fire. Chris Menahan wrote an article that appeared on The Hill which asked the question “Did Hillary Clinton’s Chappaqua house catch fire because she was burning evidence” or something to that effect? We’ll never know, of course,  but it’s interesting that is happened just now, with all of Hillary’s other problems.

An article on http://www.infowars.com for January 4th noted: “Republicans on key congressional committees  say they have uncovered new irregularities and contradictions inside the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s emails.” Remember, this was the FBI under that paragon of virtue, James Comey, who, it turns out had already written Hillary’s exoneration letter in this shoddy matter before he even interviewed her. I wonder, do you call that prescience or what? The article continued: “For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that some laws were broken when the former Secretary of State and her top aides transmitted classified information through her insecure private email server, lawmakers and investigators told The Hill.”

And, just for good measure, the Deep State denizens are out probably in the dark of night, floating that old canard about how Mr. Trump is reacting to questions about his mental fitness. If you follow this stuff, you will remember that they started pushing this stuff back in March of last year, but it didn’t seem to be going anywhere, and so they sort of laid it aside for possible future use. Well, “back to the future.”

Trump’s White House secretary,  who seems to be a pretty level-headed lady, said of all this: “It’s disgraceful and laughable. If he was unfit, he probably wouldn’t be sitting there, wouldn’t  have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has even seen.” And she went on to note Trump’s accomplishments (which are notable) in his first year in office.

But, you see, don’t you, that we have to have this cacophony of supposed Trump failures thrown in our faces at this time because  all this is supposed to detract from any “news” coverage the prostitute press is forced to put out there dealing with the reopening of the Hillary email case.

In regard to Judas Bannon in this situation, I think someone made him and offer he couldn’t refuse–and he jumped!

Happy New Year–We’re Not Updating Your InfoWars Connection!

by Al Benson Jr.

I just received, on 12/27. a New Year’s gift from Google. They decided not to update my InfoWars connection. All the other pages or email lists that I have listed seem to be getting updated daily except the InfoWars one. My first thought was “how petty!” But then I remembered that Google is one of those sources that had decided that the American public is better off if they only get one side of the story–the Deep State side. They don’t need to be aware of any of the rest of it–all that involves way too much thinking and decision making and our public school “educated” kids are just not up for that anymore, and unfortunately, neither are most of their parents (or grandparents).

I had read somewhere just recently that Google, Facebook, and one other Establishment outfit whose name escapes me at the moment, had all decided that they were going to start censoring what their readers got. Oh they don’t call it “censoring.” They have some fancy title for it that their executives were taught in school when the teacher had nothing better to do. But no matter what fancy handle you hang  on it, it all amounts to trying to keep as much information from their readership as possible in areas that make them queasy.

I don’t think this new omission is particularly aimed at me but it probably a policy aimed at anyone that has InfoWars listed as part of their daily reading. This forces me to go to another server to read the daily InfoWars updates, a minor inconvenience, but one I am willing to undertake, as InfoWars gives me information I seldom get from other sources and usually gives it to me ahead of what other sources do end up with it. So I will switch to the other server and keep up with the daily InfoWars commentary, and while I am there I will also check out updates for all the other pages I check daily, and there are a fair number of them.

Having two blog spots and publishing two newsletters puts me in the position of needing to keep up with current events as well as the historical material I write about. Just checking my email is good for about three hours a day, especially since the major uptick in anti-Confederate hysteria emerged a couple years ago.

So, if Google has decided that I (and many others) don’t need to be kept aware of what InfoWars publishes on a daily basis then all they do is force us onto other venues that are still willing to provide what we need.

The public today is not like the public in Nixon’s day, when all you had to get info on Watergate were the usual suspects–the three main media outlets–all controlled by the same people with the same statist worldview. Today you have the alt.right media and there is enough of that so the Establishment will never be able to shove Pandora back into the box again like they used to.

Today, the information is out there (just like “the truth is out there”) for those willing to look for it and there are sites like InfoWars, The Drudge Report, World Net Daily and a whole host of others putting out documentation that makes the Deep State absolutely cringe–and it’s about time!

So Google and Facebook and other Deep State outfits can withhold all they want, but eventually it’s going to get out there no matter what they do and they might as well get used to that.

Deo Vindice!

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).
