The My Pillow Guy

by Al Benson Jr.

William F. Jasper, the senior editor of The New American magazine recently interviewed MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell about his recent documentary on election fraud last November. The name of his documentary is Absolute Proof and Mr. Lindell goes into quite a bit showing how he came up with the proof he has come up with.

He feels he can take this all the way to the Supreme Court. I hope he is right, but, based on the recent performance of the august body I won’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen. The court seems to be afflicted with a singular lack of interest in any possible evidence of vote fraud that comes their way. Seems they would rather just bury their heads in the sand and tell everyone there was “no evidence of any vote fraud” last November. What they should have said is that “there is no evidence of vote fraud that we want to look at, so just move along, folks.”

Unless there are some major changes in our voting system in this country before 2022 then we have seen the last honest elections this country will have in our lifetime–and that was the 2016 election. 2020 was not an honest election–it was a gross charade.

If you want to look at Mike Lindell’s commentary about that electoral charade please check out https://lindelltv.com It will be worth your while and after you look at it pass the info along to your friends and neighbors to give it as much exposure as possible because Big Tech and Big Media are trying to put Mike Lindell out of business for daring to tell the truth that they don’t think you need to be aware of.

Mike Lindell could use your prayers because the stand for truth he has taken is costing him.

“China Joe’s” Amerika–The New Reconstruction

by Al Benson Jr.

It almost seems that we are entering a period of 21st century “reconstruction” in some ways similar to the “reconstruction that we endured after the War for Southern Independence.

After that horrific war everything remotely “Southern” was under attack and had to be done away with so the country could be introduced to something the reconstructors called the “New South.” The New South was really no South at all. It was really a deconstruction of the old South that was then labeled “new” by its leftist promoters.

We see a parallel of that situation in our day. For today’s raving leftists Donald Trump seems to represent an embodiment of the Old South mentality that must be totally destroyed and its memory removed–shoved down the memory hold if you will. To remove any vestige of Trump’s Old America it has to be replaced with “China Joe” Biden’s “new Amerika in which Communist China ends up controlling what goes on in this country–something many in our political establishment in both parties really have no big problem with–as long as they can continue to get a big slice of the political pie for themselves.

An article in the February 1st issue of The New American magazine by Alex Newman explains much of this. The article is called Communist China Infiltrating Everything and it is worth reading. Newman states, in part, “It has become popular for conservatives to exclaim , only half jokingly ,that ‘China owns Biden.’ Unfortunately, Biden is just the tip of the iceberg: At all levels, U.S. officials, businesses, and media outlets are being compromised. In fact, whether the mass-murdering regime in Beijing officially owns Biden or not, it ‘owns’ a growing array of assets among Western politicians, companies, technologies, media outlets, and more, a situation that threatens the survival of America as a free nation…The American media, which would normally be responsible for reporting all this, is being paid off and compromised by Beijing, too, a growing array of documents and evidence reveal…U.S. lawmakers ae being targeted via bribery and blackmail to do the dictatorship’s bidding” according to U.S. Director of Intelligence John Ratcliffe.

Newman noted that Kamala Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff works for a law firm that is getting rich working for Communist Chinese outfits posing as ‘companies.’ No surprise there. When Comrade Kamala assumes the mantle of president after China Joe is put out to pasture she will, in effect, be Barack Obama’s third term in office. Both her and Obama have strikingly Marxist backgrounds.

But it ain’t only the Democrats, folks. The Republicans are in bed with the Chinese Reds also. Alex Newman tells us that: “Even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is indirectlly tied to the CCP through his wife, Elaine Chao. Chao, a member of the gloablist China boosting group known as the Council on Foreign Relations, comes from a family that made its fortune in shipping through close ties to the CCP dating back decades, multiple news reports have revealed…The threat of Chinese Communist infiltration of America and the West today is enormous and existential.” And the media is not telling you this because the Chinese have bought and paid for them. So they will do their part to implement China Joe’s “new reconstruction.”

Remove the memory of Trump, implement the new Harris/Biden “reconstruction” for this country and then sit back and enjoy their bribe money while selling the country out to its enemies. It seems that is now the game being played. All they have to do is to keep the public here scared of the Chinese virus and hiding in fear behind their face masks forever and they will have accomplished their goal and Amerika will soon be “reconstructed.” And your nor your children will recognize it as America anymore and that’s because it won’t be.

The new “reconstruction” deems that we will become a satellite to Red China–and our present political establishment, which has no loyalties except to the Prince of Darkness, will love to have it so. This is where we are at. Learn to resist it or get used to it.

Reconstruction Is Back–If it really ever ended to begin with

by Al Benson Jr.

Back in 1868 the Russian radical, Michael Bakunin, commented on the aftermath of the War of Northern Aggression. Considering he was not an American, Bakunin had some interesting comments to make about that war. In the book Russian Radicals Look To America it was noted, on page 70 that “Bakunin hoped for the ‘triumph’ of this minority ‘of great and generous…principles,’ but at the same time was aware of the limited possibilities of the ‘revolution by consent’ (as we would cal it today), once this minority achieved power. For ‘popular self-government’ really to become a reality…another revolution…far more profound…would be necessary.”

What Bakunin was really saying here is that another revolution, over and beyond the War of Northern Aggression, would be needed to give newly freed ex-slaves the place they really deserved in this country–and that further revolution was what Karl Marx referred to as “the reconstruction of a social world”–what we call “reconstruction” in the South. Two things here. One, Bakunin recognized the War of Northern Aggression was a revolution, and it was. It was this country’s French Revolution. Two, he recognized that our version of the French Revolution was not quite enough to give the leftist radicals in Washington everything they hoped for and so, to do that, we needed yet another revolution, a revolution that lying “historians” have told us was to rebuild the vanquished South–and they had the gall to call it “reconstruction.” Former General Richard Taylor from here in Louisiana called it “deconstruction” and he was right!

If you want to find out how well “reconstruction” really worked for the South and its folk, then read Ron and Donnie Kennedy’s book Punished with Poverty Shotwell Publishing, Columbia, South Carolina and you will get an up close and personal view of how “reconstruction” worked for the South.

The late Frank Conner in his book The South Under Siege–1830-2000 noted some of what was “accomplished” during “reconstruction” in the South. Mr. Conner observed that “…voter registration boards (named by the military authorities) could arbitrarily deny the vote to anyone: in other words, Southern Democrats would have a very hard time getting registered to vote…Now the South was under martial law. The occupying army could enter and search any Southerner’s home at any time and seize whatever possessions it wished…The U.S. Army could arrest any Southerner at any time for virtually any reason and hold him as a prisoner without trial for however long it wished…Woe unto any Southerner who displayed–under any circumstances at all–a Confederate flag or any other symbol of the Confederacy, he would be arrested immediately.” Former Confederate soldiers even had to remove CSA buttons off their coats and fasten those coats with string! Does any of this sound remotely familiar given today’s political climate–particularly the part about the flags–and that part has now been expanded to include Confederate monuments–the reason given for that? They supposedly promote “racism.”

Look at some of what has gone on recently in this country. It looks to me like our current crop of leftists in both parties in Washington has been using the playbook of the Radical Republicans from the 1860s as a guide to what they want to enact in our day. One is left to wonder how long it will be before they start trying to enforce the finer points of this updated “reconstruction.” Already Trump voters are all being labeled as “domestic terrorists” who, if not all arrested should at least be forced to attend “re-education camps”. They did the same thing in the 1860s in the South–only back then the re-education camps were called public schools and they were a particularly Yankee invention foisted on the South as part of our price for losing the War. Same principle in both cases.

Back in the 1860s Southerners who would not vote Republican were routinely denied the vote. They’re not doing that today–yet–rather they are going to cancel out our votes by letting anyone who comes into the country vote, citizen or not and they are talking about even giving the vote to 16 year olds. They plan to make sure those nasty Trump voters never have enough votes again to constitute a majority and should that occur again by sheer accident a bit of creative voting in certain states will solve that thorny problem for them.

Actually, “reconstruction” in this country never really ended. It took a slight breather but now it has returned with a vengeance. One wonders if Trump voters are the new Confederates in this ongoing story of leftist occupation of the country. So, folks, welcome to the 21st century brand of “reconstruction” designed by the deep state to ensure that you never get your God-given liberties back–ever again!!!

Socialist Republicans Today No Different Today Than They Were In The 1860s

by Al Benson Jr.

I just read a headline last evening that said “McConnell lays out Trump Impeachment Trial Timeline…” Now I may be a bit dense but my understanding of what the Constitution said about impeachment was that you had to try a sitting president (that means one still in office) for “high crimes and misdemeanors” and that once the president became a private citizen he could no longer be impeached. But of course that was back in the day when Congress at least tried to pretend that they followed the Constitution. Now all such foolish restraint has been tossed aside and the socialist Republicans have no problem identifying with the hard left Democrats that they always claim they are opposed to. So we can assume that Mr. Trump will now be subject to routine bouts of impeachment for the rest of his natural life–and beyond.

The real reason for this impeachment is so they can pass an impeachment resolution that stipulates that he can never again run for any political office. Truth be told, they are still scared to death of what Mr. Trump might do a few years down the road and they want to deprive him of any chance to do it–whatever it is.

I suppose if Trump’s son, Don Jr., were to decide to run for president in 2024 Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, would pass a resolution impeaching Don Jr. even before he occupied any office whatever. But they will try yet again to impeach Trump, not because he really broke any law, but because the have the power to do whatever they want and they want to make sure the foes of their deep state bosses never have another chance to assume any office that will damage the deep state in any way. Now that the operatives of the deep state in both parties have the power they plan on never giving it up again. When the Chinese Communist troops get around to occupying the country even they will have to get permission from the deep state to do whatever they want to do because the deep state controls their leaders too. You think that won’t happen? Want to bet your life savings on it?

Andrew Johnson’s impeachment in the late 1860s was made up of the same type of flimsy material that today’s Trump impeachments are–smoke and wind signifying nothing. In his book Impeached author David O. Stewart made some interesting observations. Stewart is an establishment historian, yet even for that, his book contains some interesting comments about Johnson and his impeachment. He noted, on page 75, that “…Congress was daily receiving petitions that demanded Johnson’s removal from office. The petitions, the fruits of an organized campaign, were signed by as few as three citizens or as many as three hundred. They poured in throughout 1867, mostly from the Midwest”

Radical Republican Thaddeus Stevens had been pushing something called the Tenure of Office Act which was to become the centerpiece of the impeachment charges against Johnson. Stewart tells us: “Under the legislation, the Senate would have to concur in the firing of any executive official whose appointment the Senate had confirmed in the first place..The Framers in 1787 required Senate confirmation of presidential appointees, but the charter was silent about who could remove those officials.” The thing they went after Johnson for was his demanding the resignation of Secretary of War Edwin Stanton who Johnson didn’t trust–and with good reason.

Johnson vetoed the Act, which naturally was overridden by the radical Congress and so it became law. It is interesting that this Act was only passed shortly before the impeachment and up until that time there was no law preventing a president from firing someone in his cabinet. You have to wonder if this was passed in order to keep Stanton in office. He was, after all, one of those reputed by researchers to have had connections to the Lincoln assassination. What other possible connections to that event may have been then sitting in Congress? If I recall some of my research on the Lincoln assassination there were some. At any rate Congress was going to make sure Stanton’s “six was covered.”

On page 112 Stewart also observed: “Fired by Stevens, the group resolved not to abandon the cause. They would bring up impeachment again and again and again. As a Republican remembered their strategy, ‘the closest watch would be kept upon every action of the President, and if an apparent justifying cause could be found the project of his removal would be vigorously renewed.”

Does any of this sound familiar to you? How different is this from what the Democrat/Republican political machine is doing in our day? I submit their ain’t much difference. Back then we had socialists that ran the Republican Party. Today it’s socialists that run both the Republican and Democratic parties. But is their really much difference? Only difference is that they are going after a man who is now a private citizen and not a sitting president. But that’s no problem for them. The slight matter of it being against the law bothers them not at all. When you have a president in office that gained that office by questionable means and a vice-president who is not constitutionally eligible to hold her office, what difference does the law make? It’s just an inconvenience to be ignored–unless you or I break it and then, Katy bar the door! Our two–tiered system of justice will not allow for that–they can–we can’t! Simple as that!

The Church Neutralized–Part Three


by Al Benson Jr.

One might almost say that the neutralization of the Christian Church went along with the “reconstruction” of the old Confederate States in the late 1800s after Mr. Lincoln’s War

.
At the conclusion of the shooting part of that war the Yankee school teachers descended upon the Southern states like a swarm of locusts. Thus was the public school system, as we know it, brought into a South which had little experienced anything quite like it. That’s not to sway that the South was an ignorant region by any means but simply to say that it had never experienced anything quite like Karl Marx’s vision of public education before the War. After the War it was all but taken captive by it

.
And along with the Yankee teachers came Yankee churchmen determined to force their view of religiosity upon what they considered an unregenerate South–unregenerate in that it had never widely accepted Unitarianism and/or socialism.


But not all Southern folk were fooled. Francis Butler Simkins in A History Of The South observed: “An Alabamian expressed the opinion of most white Southerners when he said: “Perhaps the greatest liars and most malignant slanderers that the North has spewed out upon the South since the close of the war, are the reverend blackguards that have been sent among us as ministers of religion.”


Joseph Canfield, in his authoritative book The Incredible Scofield and his Book has given us some insight on how new doctrines were introduced into our churches in the 1800s. Joe told us that “The Niagara Conference grew out of a major effort which originated with the Plymouth Brethren. In the period after the Civil War, they pushed very hard to get general acceptance for that interest in prophecy which had started in England following the French Revolution. While there had been millenial elements in the movement which forced the United States into the Civil War, the Plymouth Brethren position had not completely taken over. The church or at least a large part of it had to be directed to the view that its hope was its own failure.”


It goes without saying that such a doctrine is at complete odds with the traditional orthodox Christian view. Gary DeMar, in The Reduction of Christianity asked an interesting question regarding this situation. He said “If Christians retreat from the cultural issues of the day, who will, humanly speaking, visibly control the future course of history? If Christians won’t, humanists will…Christians retreat because there is no hope. As more Christians retreat there is less hope. Finally, the whole cultural field is left to humanists who insist on taking us down the road to an international statist utopia.” And you have to admit that with dispensationalism this is the reward we have reaped–a failing church doing nothing but trying to save souls in bunches to get them into heaven. To them nothing else matters. And while saving souls is important it is not the end all of everything.


Joe Canfield also noted the time John Nelson Darby spent in St. Louis with Rev. James Brookes, the pastor of a Presbyterian church there. And he noted: “Darby concentrated on an area in the United States which had strong connections with the Continent which had hatched ungodly ideas. It was in that city that he profusely scattered the seeds which flowered into Dispensationalism.” St. Louis in the mid-1800s was a hotbed of radicalism. Many of the socialists and Communists from the failed socialist revolts in Europe in 1848 ended up in the St. Louis area. Canfield also noted that”…the blossoming of Darby’s movement in its American form was entrusted to a man bases in St. Louis who had a ‘French Connection?’ That man was C. I. Scofield.” Beginning to get the picture yet?


You need to read Joe Canfield’s book about Scofield. It seems that Scofield was, to say the least, rather an “interesting” personality. Canfield told us that Scofield married his second wife before he bothered to divorce his first wife, and that Scofield, only three years after his “conversion” was called to preach at the First Congregational Church in Dallas, Texas. This was only five years after the “official” end of “reconstruction” in the South. And for those who understand “reconstruction” in the South, they realize it did not really end in 1877 when the Yankee troops pulled out. It has continued right on down to the present day here. The Yankee troops left but the Yankee school teachers and some of the Yankee churchmen stayed on because they understood what “reconstruction” was really all about.


The church Scofield pastored in Dallas grew. It had started out with seventeen charter members–eleven of them being from the North. Scofield went on to become acting missionary superintendent for the Congregationalists in the Southwest, which included churches in Texas and Louisiana. He went on to become president of the board of trustees of the Congregationalists Lake Charles College in Lake Charles, Louisiana. So he was able to spread the doctrines of J.N. Darby throughout the deep South within a decade after the supposed end of ‘reconstruction.’


Pastor Duane Garner, who I have mentioned previously, has noted that “Dispensationalists have no multi-generational focus. As they consistently apply their theology to their mission and lives, they find it foolish to take on any effort that may take several years, even several generations to finish…Instead of viewing their own homes and descendants as their greatest mission field and greatest opportunity to impact the world for the cause of Jesus Christ, they fear to bring children into the world…They see little need to facilitate the training of great musicians, skilled artists or gifted writers. There is no time for such efforts. The creation is dying and everything is going down the sewer. The results of this dogma manifest themselves in the Church’s steady retreat from society.”


Can you begin to envision the results of such a theology in a “reconstructed” South after the War of Northern Aggression had reduced that part of the country to almost a complete shambles?


I have long contended that Dispensationalism was the theological arm of Yankee “reconstruction” in the South.. The timing for its bursting full-blown on the South was propitious. It reduced churches in the South from bastions of their culture into virtual nonentities, content with only “getting people to heaven” and little else. What a come-down from the preaching of stalwarts like R. L. Dabney and Benjamin Morgan Palmer! And this is where we are in our day–God help us!!!
