“Thou shalt have no other gods before”…Revolution!

by Al Benson Jr.

Like all false cults and religions, the First Church of Orthodox Leftism has its pseudo litanies and commandments, guaranteed to lead its followers away from the truths of Holy Scripture and right into the Devil’s political playpen.

They may not all come out and publish these like Saul Alinsky did with his Rules For Radicals, but they are all pretty much along these same lines. The “god” of those on the Orthodox Left is the false god of revolution– whether in his current manifestation he is known as Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot or George.

The god of revolution has as his/her/its agenda the complete destruction of the last vestiges of a Western Civilization that was built on the Christian faith.They used to call it Christendom, but since many of those who would currently destroy it inhabit churches, I’m not sure what to call it anymore.

However, the Orthodox Left parodies the Christian Church. We have our God-given Ten Commandments. Karl Marx, in the Communist Manifesto, which he penned for the League of the Just (Illuminati) gave us a list of ten things the Marxists needed to do to take over a country. Interestingly, one of those was to control the education system–and they have worked that one to perfection in this country. It remains to be seen if Mr. Trump;s new Education Secretary will be able to make any difference there. In early February she was slated to attend a meeting at a school where protesters refused to let her into the building. Mrs. DeVos is going to find out she has a real gem with the Department of Education, which we never should have had to begin with. Her nightmares are only beginning.

But the fact the protesters barred her way into a public school (I’m told she did eventually get in) shows that those who adhere to the commandments of the false god of the Left are bent on tearing down everything that is still left. They want NO changes in the public school Leviathan.

There was an informative article on http://needtoknow.news for February 4-10, written by G. Edward Griffin in which Mr. Griffin noted: “This week’s news is dominated, once again, with reports of violent demonstrations against the Trump administration. We have seen violent demonstrations before, but something new has been added that is profoundly significant. It is the rhetoric of civil war and revolution. The organizations spouting civil-war rhetoric are following a playbook taken from the writings of Vladimir Lenin, founder of the Communist Party. It is a rhetoric that demonizes all enemies as ‘capitalist exploiters’ (in America, where there is still a latent affinity for capitalism. the word ‘Fascism’ is preferred.)  and calls for an overthrow of the government. Followers are not supposed to think about what would replace it…” And that mentality (or lack thereof) is a holdover from the 60s and 70s. At that time, I talked to some of those kids that were so hellbent on revolution and asked them what, if they were successful, they would replace the current system with. They didn’t have a clue, anymore than these “useful idiots” that are protesting today do. But you can bet the farm that those people who get them out there to protest do have a clue, and if the kids really knew what it was all about, and had any sense, they’d pack it in and go home.

Mr. Griffin notes, and accurately so,that most average people don’t figure a batch of rag-tag kids with signs and vulgar language, will make any difference. However, in this they are in error. Mr. Griffin observes that “Major political changes always are achieved by minorities. All revolutions are the work of less than three percent of the population, and the American Revolution was no exception.  It’s not how many people there are but how well organized they are and where they are. If the three percenters are influential in a nation’s power centers (political parties, government agencies, courts, military, schools, activist groups, labor unions, etc. then the odds are in their favor. The masses will follow the winners.”

What we are seeing right now in the streets of America is a classic example of the pressure from above and pressure from below technique. And the two work together–hand in glove, if you will. On the one hand you have the masses in the streets trying to destabilize the new Trump administration. They are on the bottom–the “below” half of the equation. And then, on top, you have agents in the government (Trump is far from getting rid of all the rotten apples yet) who are just waiting for an excuse to introduce more draconian regulations that will move the country even closer to Lenin’s vision for all countries. These are the “pressure from above” part of the equation.

If you want a good example of how this all works together, read the book The Strawberry Statement by James Simon Kunen, particularly pages 130-131. That will explain how they do it–and they do it the same way now as they did in 1968, because it always works!

And the false god of the Orthodox Leftists still remains the god of (Marxist) revolution!

Trump Beginning to Find Out How Really Entrenched “Deep State” Is

by Al Benson Jr.

Now that he has assumed the office of President and is actually trying to fulfill the promises he made to the American people (something most politicians never do) Donald Trump is beginning to find out just how deeply entrenched the “deep  state” or the “shadow government” or whatever you care to call it, really is.

He is finding out that anything that he tries to do to actually help the American people is going to come in for tremendous opposition. He is finding out that his attempts to help ordinary Americans are the absolute last thing most of those in government and those that finance them want to see done. In the previous eight years they had a “president” in there who worked mightily to tear down any and all safeguards the American people had and to reduce us to Third World status–and this was exactly what our “shadow government” really wanted to see done. Now Mr. Trump arrives on the scene  and actually tries to help ordinary Americans. This cannot be allowed to happen. He will undo the work of decades if he is allowed to proceed and so he must be thwarted at every turn. Everything he tries to do to help ordinary folks out and to reduce the federal over-reach in their lives has to be opposed.

This is quite apparent in this situation where the judge has issued a stay on Mr. Trump’s executive order keeping people from seven countries noted for their export of terrorists out of the country. This judge, who seems to be a supporter of the Black Lives Matter group, is seeking to make sure people from those countries  that export their terrorism to us can keep on doing so. Attorneys General for the states of Washington and Minnesota have asked him to intervene and prevent Mr. Trump from trying to keep the terrorists out. They don’t quite say it that way but that’s about what it amounts to. Washington is, shall we say, among the more leftist states and Minnesota is noted for its large Muslim population–and believe me, folks, they are there. I have seen them. I don’t know if Minnesota still does, but they used to get federal money for importing people from Somalia.

I would hope that Mr. Trump is, by now, getting the picture of just how deep his opposition to helping ordinary Americans really is–and much of that opposition comes from within our own government.

The fact that Mr. Trump did so well in the last election is proof that ordinary Americans are finally starting to wake up and realize just how much their own government has been shafting them and how much their own government really hates their guts. Hillary told Marxist truth when she called us all “deplorables.” That’s what she really thinks of most of us, at least those of us who are not rabid socialists, and, unfortunately, lots of those on the Republican side of the aisle feel the same way.

Initially, I was not a big fan of Trump’s. However, when I looked at all the people, from radical leftists to the Establishment figures that finance the radical leftists, to the so-called “respectable” conservatives that all hated him, my first thought was “This guy must be doing something right because all the ‘right’ people hate him.”

Mr. Trump is going to find out, as he goes along, if he hasn’t already figured it out, that from day one, he will face intense (and usually not fair) opposition to everything he tries to do. The cultural Marxists in government, the media, in adademia an everyplace in between will spend their full time for the next four years working to undermine his program to give ordinary folks a break. Because you see, at root, they don’t want ordinary folks to get a break. They hate the middle class and like all good Marxists, they will  work  to destroy it. They hate white, Christian Americans with a passion because they are white and Christian and their agenda is to destroy us. If that seems extreme then get used to it. It is. But it is also the truth!

The “shadow government” wants our culture gone and the best way to promote that is to make sure lots of people from alien cultures are allowed in here to adulterate our culture. Even the Christians should have figured this out by now, when some of them are taking the crosses off their churches so as not to “offend” Muslims. It would seem that the tentacles of the “shadow government” also reach into the Church. And they also reach into education, but don’t get me started on that one tonight!

Trump and his administration will have to literally fight for every inch of ground they intend to occupy because the “shadow government” is not about to make it easy for them. They are already looking to get rid of Trump–any way they can, because what his is trying to do will help us and set their agenda back and that can’t be permitted. Giving the American people an even break cannot be allowed!

Do The Leftists Control Public Education In This Country? You’d Better Believe It!

by Al Benson Jr.

Just a couple days ago I read an excellent article by David Risselada, published by Western Free Press  on 1/24/17. Among other things, Mr. Risselada said: “Finally, after eight years of governance by a left wing radical intent on turning our nation upside down, a new President is at the helm. That’s a perfect description of what Comrade Obama did during his tenure in office. Mr. Risselada went on to comment briefly on some of Trump’s cabinet picks, both good and questionable, and then he came to Betsy DeVos, who is Mr. Trump’s choice to head the Department of Education–the department both us and our kids would be better off without.

In commenting on Mrs. DeVos he noted her endorsement of school choice (an interesting proposition that has two sides) and her opposition to Common Core. That opposition, at least, is a step in the right direction. But then he stated: “Truthfully, if something isn’t done about education it won’t matter who Trump nominates because the next generation will simply be brought up being taught that they are all racist, warmongering, sexist islamaphobes that don’t care about the planet.” And he further noted that: “…until someone acknowledges that our school systems have become a breeding ground for behavior based psychology and behavior modification techniques, which indoctrinate children into the tenets of progressivism, nothing will change.” Unfortunately, he is right on the money here, and most folks, even on school boards, just don’t have a clue.

He stated that if Betsy DeVos “…is serious about reforming our education system the first thing she would do is to eliminate the United States participation in UNESCO, which stands for The United Nations Educational, Scientific, Cultural Organization.  The United States has been a member since 1946. Since this time the United Nations has dictated educational policy in the United States with the main goal being the elimination of patriotism, individualism, and any concept of what is right and wrong. This explains how the radical left has maintained such control over education, getting away with teaching  racially divisive concepts like ‘white privilege’ while at the same time raising generations of American students who have no understanding of the constitutional republic in which they freely live.”  So, it will be interesting to see what Mrs. DeVos does with UNESCO, if anything. And, if nothing, then you can rest assured that nothing will change in the area of public education save the educational rhetoric.

As if to buttress Mr. Risselada’s  emphasis on getting rid of UNESCO, there was a brief article in The New American for February 6, 2017, the headline for which was UN Demands More Globalist Propaganda in School Textbooks. This article noted that: “The goal of the Global Education Monitoring Report  released in December by the UN Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is fairly transparent: accelerate the indoctrination of impressionable children worldwide with textbook propaganda promoting ‘global citizenship,’ the discredited man-made global warming theory, homosexuality, transgenderism, and outright totalitarianism. And according to the report itself, school textbooks are the best way to do that.”

And to finish off this educational farce (because that’s what it really is) there was an article on http://www.zerohedge.com for January 27th stating that Ohio State University will soon be offering a class on How to detect Microaggressions  and be ‘Self-Aware of White Privilege’.”  The Zero Hedge article observed that “Amazingly, American parents can get all this for the bargain basement price of just $44,784 per year. Just an amazing value.” I recently did an article for this blog spot about families in the South that willingly pay for their kids’ cultural destruction in these big colleges. Here is a prime example!

Frankly, I don’t pretend to know what Mrs. DeVos, if her nomination flies, will do about the leftist tilt of the Department of Education or UNESCO.  I know what she ought to do, but whether that will be too rich for her or not, I just don’t know. She ought to quit using any and all material from the United Nations in every public school in America. I also understand there is a bill currently in Congress to get the U.S., out of the U.N. This bill needs to be passed (though I doubt that it will) and we need to get this country out of the United Nations.

As far as “reforming” the public schools, I really have very serious doubts. I think that the best honest folks can do is to possibly slow down their leftist agenda somewhat, but this is a system you will never truly reform, because I think true reform for it is impossible. Remember, we are talking about a Humanist school system that was formed to get rid of Christian influences in education in this country.  So if that was the aim of its founders at its inception, what, pray tell, do you “reform” it back to? I have asked that question several times over the years and have yet to get anything even approaching an answer. So I have come to the conclusion that you don’t reform it–you separate from it, secede from it, whatever you want to call it. You get your kids out of it. There are educational options for those willing to look.

Please Pass the Planned Poverty

by Al Benson Jr.

How many folks chanced to drive through parts of the South in the 1950s, 60s and even in the early 70s and noted how poor the country seemed to be compared with other areas of the United States? Many probably wondered why the South couldn’t seem t do better that it was doing. To say that the South, in our lifetime, was and is the poorest part of the country, with the possible exception of Indian reservations, is no exaggeration. And yet, knowing some of the reasons for that and the history behind it, my wife and I, now living in Louisiana, would not willingly go back north to live. The South is home, and we have been more content here than just about any other place we’ve lived, for several reasons.

There are reasons for the poverty in much of the South and for the poor whites and blacks that live in it, and in many cases the poverty is not their fault. It was intended for them to live that way by those that sought to conquer them during and after the War of Northern Aggression and by the descendants of those conquerors who, even today, enjoy rubbing their faces in the planned poverty that is supposed to be their due because their ancestors had the temerity to stand up and “dare defend their rights.” Such is not to be tolerated in the cultural Marxist milieu.

To explain some of this, Ron and Donnie Kennedy have a new book out called Punished With Poverty published by Shotwell Publishing in Columbia, South Carolina http://www.ShotwellPublishing.com  which I would recommend to any and all who wonder why the South has been in the particular situation we have found her in today. About the best way I can say it (excuse my bluntness) is that those collectivist types that overran the South during and after the War planned it that way. If Southern people were too poor and beaten down to fight back again, why there would be no future resistance to what would eventually morph into what we call the New World Order.

To quote the Kennedy Brothers: “Several years ago and elderly friend of the Kennedy Twins told a story about how his grandmother  often stated that ‘those people tried to starve all of us to death after the War.’ Two things struck me about this man’s story: First, his grandmother lived in North Central Louisiana, a section of the South that was not even physically touched by the War; second, his grandmother was not talking about starvation as a result of military action in and around her home but the actions of ‘those people,’ that is, Yankees, well after the War. The war was over, what happened to the idea of ‘with malice toward none,’…” If you’ve read the history you know what happened to it. It was nice Lincolnian  political rhetoric and that’s all it was.

And the Kennedys noted also: “(A) leading Northern newspaper called for a terrible retribution against Southerners: ‘We mean to conquer them,  Subjugate them…’ Never would traitors be permitted to ‘return to peaceful and contented homes’; instead they ‘must find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children.” Now isn’t this just an ennobling Northern sentiment? Somehow this isn’t quite the picture of the noble, generous and forgiving Yankees that i was taught about in my public indoctrination center’s “history” books.  The Kennedys ask the question: “Did the nation that spawned the articles quoted above, calling for Northerners  to ‘conquer and subjugate’ the South and leave the future generations of Southerners to ‘find poverty at their firesides and see privation in the anxious eyes of mothers and the rags of children,’ institute a Reconstruction policy that fulfilled these hideous propositions? One final question that must be asked: Is the policy of impoverishment and subjugation of Southerners an ongoing political policy of modern America?” How can you answer that question any other way but “Hell, Yes.”

The Kennedys also observed that: “For Northerners who view themselves via standard establishment propaganda as grand defenders of the downtrodden and promoters of freedom, reading about how the war against the South was instituted in order to secure profits and power for the North’s ruling elite, will not be gleefully embraced.” While that is understandable, in view of what we were all taught in public indoctrination centers, if some of the Northern folks want to really grasp what the War was all about then they are going to have to start embracing what the Kennedys talk about here–gleefully or otherwise.

There is so much in this book that I can’t do more than scratch the surface here, but in the words of the late Alan Stang,  when he reviewed Donnie’s and my book, Lincoln’s Marxists, in regard to Punished With Poverty, “You need to read this book!” I will be passing more information out of Punished With Poverty along as the Lord enables.

In 2017 Get Ready For An Onslaught of Cultural Marxist Drivel

by Al Benson Jr.

Well, it seems with the Electoral College finally giving Donald Trump the votes lhe needed to validate his election we may have (and I say “may have”) put some of the election vitriol behind us (for now). Do I think the cultural Marxists will leave this alone? Not on your life! They seem to have lost some ground here so they will probably be forced to change their tactics–and some of the following may indicate one direction they will be going in.

There was an article in  USA Today for December 21, 2016. written by a Maria Puente that may well note the cultural Marxist direction in upcoming months. The article is about the KKK.  It seems that the A & E Network plans to do a series on the KKK as “America’s most infamous hate group.” According to Puente: “The network announced Monday the first of eight hour-long episodes of a ‘compelling’ documentary, Generation KKK, will begin airing Jan. 10 (10 p.m. ET). Why now? Becaulse hate groups are trending.” So who says they are trending?  Keep reading folks and you will note some of the “usual suspects.”

Puente then eases herself into neo-Nazi groups and the “alt-right” white nationalist organizations and how these groups were given “the oxygen of attention” by Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Because of that she presumably lost to Trump “who embraced some alt-right voices and won.” Begin to see the direction here?  KKK equals alt-righlt equals Donald Trump, who won the election because of his association with “hate groups.”  She does everything but state it outright, but she comes close enough so you get the idea.

But this is not something new or recent. It turns out that A & E has been working on this series on the Klan for over eighteen month and this series will supposedly look at new Klan “recruiting efforts targeting families and ‘indoctrinating children’.” Almost sounds as if the Klan has been taking lessons from the public school system!

Puente claims that Klan membership is “on the rise” and for evidence she cites that bastion of totally unbiased and objective “research”–the Southern Poverty Law Center, to buttress her profound revelation!  For those who realize what is going on in this country, you don’t really need to read any further. You and I know exactly where thlis is all headed.

However, it seems that A & E is not alone. A “senior fellow” at the SPLC, Mark Potok, (anyone remember him? –he’s one of the “usual suspects”) claims that “There’s a plethora, a remarkable number of documentaries in production and efforts in various TV venues to portray the extreme right. I’ve been here nearly 20 years and I’ve never seen such a rash of these things.” So it would seem that everybody and his second cousin in the Mainstream Media is about to jump in and savage the alt-right, which is, after all, siphoning off a lot of readers and viewers from the MSM. And why not??? The MSM have proven over the years that they flat out lie to us, that they are nothing but journalistic prostitutes–little more than water carriers for the Leftists. So why should anyone listen to them anymore?

To be continued.

America’s Humanist Seminaries–Public Schools

by Al Benson Jr.

Recently I read an article on http://www.lewrockwell.com  which had originally been published on http://www.garynorth.com on  November 23, 2016. It had to do with public schools–always an area of concern for me. Ever since the days of the textbook protest in Kanawha County, West Virginia in the mid-1970s, I have had a major concern about public schools and what they do to the children of America.

Mr. North’s article started off this way: “Challenge: Which institution would I defund 100%?  I would eliminate all funding for education, including all of the military academies.”

I usually read Gary North’s articles when I can find them because he always gives  you insights you probably would not come up with on your own–things most of us ought to be thinking about that hardly ever seem to occur to us. And Mr. North’s take on public education is pretty much the same as mine. When we educated our two children, lo these manly years ago now, public education was never an option, much to the chagrin of most of the folks in the church we attended at the time. I guess those folks can be forgiven for their mindset–they had never spent any time in West Virginia during a textbook protest, never heard school board members lie to them, never seen “law enforcement” officers beat up textbook protesters or any of the rest of what went on there in the Establishment’s attempt to get those kids back into public schools–no matter what. Don’t get me wrong, they were good folks, but having spent no time on the “battle front” so to speak, they were extremely public school oriented–and therein lies the Christians dilemma in our day. Most Christians send their kids to be “educated” (if such it can be called) for five days a week every week except during the summer, in public schools and they can’t seem to figure out why an hour of Sunday School on the Lord’s Day doesn’t counteract whatever evil influences the kids pick up during the week, at school and other places. Maybe part of the problem is that most of the parents were also “educated” in public schools and were “educated” so as not to notice what really goes on in these “institutions of learning.”

Gary North has labeled public schools “a substitute church.” He has observed: “I am convinced that the American public school system is a humanistic attempt to  substitute the state for the church. This has certainly been the case in American history.” He noted the Puritans’ attempt in the 1600s to create the “city on a hill” that could serve as a pattern for the rest of the world and then he said of the Yankees in New England that: “The Yankees wanted to achieve a decent society by not only controlling the impulses of sin, but also by promoting righteous causes by means of state funding. The public school system was the first great Yankee experiment in this regard.” Unfortunately it was not the last. And Mr. North has taken note of what the Yankees did in the South after the War of Northern Aggression. He said: “By hook or by crook–and in the case of the Civil War, by means of military conquest–the Yankees exported the public school system, and then, in alliance with New York City publishers, took over the production of textbooks that would be used to reshape the rest of the country along Yankee lines.” (Emphasis mine).

So, to begin with, the public schools were never really about education in the true sense of that term. They were ever and always about social engineering and promoting the Yankee worldview (especially in the South, so their former adversaries would be “educated out” of the desire to ever again think for themselves or question illegitimate authority). Like true cultural Marxists, they killed two birds with one stone. They dumbed  down their potential opposition (not only for that generation but for generations to come)  and the Yankee book publishers made a pile of dinero out of the deal as well.

And “those people,” always mindful of their agenda to create “their humanist city on all hills” wanted to make sure children spent as little time with their parents as possible and as much time with the public school “educators” as possible to reduce parental influence and direction.

Back on November 24, 2011, one of the first articles I did for this blog spot was called Kindergarten’s Socialist Origins. For awhile it got quite a bit of readership. I would encourage readers to go back and check it out.

This trend has, if anything, accelerated. Just today, 12/12/16 on the LewRockwell.com Blog, I read an article by Michael S. Rozeff entitled On Eliminating the Family and the Person. Mr. Rozeff stated that a Nobel Prize winner has now said that public preschool programs should start at birth. In other words–from the womb to the public school classroom! Seems these public school “change agents” really have wonderful plans for our children that do not include any parental involvement whatever, except in the breeding process–parents producing “children for the state.” Mr. Rozeff said: “It’s not precisely ‘Brave New World,’ but it shares the social control, conditioning and removal of parents.” Rozeff observed that such a move would engender the formation of a whole new federal education agency, quite possibly something like the “Office of Preschool Education.” Yet another federal bureaucracy–the Yankee types would love it!

Mr. Rozeff quite correctly observed that: “This is another step in the elimination of the family. The family disappears and goes the way of the dodo bird. Utilitarians and progressives rejoice. No child if left behind. Every child is ‘saved’. It takes a village becomes a reality: It takes a society. Hillary Clinton triumphs after all. The shadow of socialism is proffered as the Light.”

In his article, later on, Rozeff asked who owns the child and who has rights over the child. Silly question that. The bureaucrats have already answered that one with their educational Leviathan of public schools, rules, regulations–and propaganda–always the propaganda–it’s the real reason for the school’s existence after all. And all the time you thought it was about “quality education” because that’s what the experts told you, and you believed them. After all, they were the “experts” weren’t they? But experts at exactly what? Stealing your children, that’s what! And how many Christians are willing to go along with this because they are just not willing to take the time and make the effort to find out where public education started and where it is really coming from or where it plans to take us and our kids and grandkids.

The majority of parents pay the biggest part of their property taxes to help finance the public school Leviathan. Why people are willing to have their property taxed to finance the moral destruction of their kids is something that escapes me. I guess I missed that class on Brainwashing 101 when it was held.

BUT–what if there were a law that said that only those who use public schools should have to pay taxes for their upkeep? What if there were laws that prohibited compulsory attendance in schools?  Oh, we’d all go back into the Dark Ages, you say. I really don’t think so. Those who really wanted to educate their kids would find creative ways to do that, Christian and home schooling being among them, and for those that don’t care one way or the other, all the public school does is provide a federally-funded babysitting service–propaganda included!

Gary North has raised a good and valid point. Defund the public school system and you can begin to do away with spending billions on a federal Department of Education we never should have had to begin with and that really does nothing more than to ensure that your kids get dumber and more ignorant one generation at a time.

People have been conned into thinking the public school has been a failure because there was never enough money for a really “quality education” and therefore, we need to spend billions more on public education yearly. The teachers unions love it! Actually, the exact opposite is true. Karl Marx’s public school system (see point 10 in The Communist Manifesto) has actually been a screaming success, because indoctrination has always been the name of the game–not education. If we can just begin to get that through our heads then maybe, with the Lord’s help and guidance, we can begin to turn things around. Real Christian education is a necessity, not just one option among many.
