The Roots of Nullification

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Nullification does not seem to be a popular subject with many who write about the Constitution. In preparation for this article I checked out several books in my library written by those who had dealt with the Constitution and with the early days of this country. In most cases I found that the term “nullification” was not even included in the index of the book, which means the author did not bother to deal with it.

The one book I did find that dealt with it in a meaningful way was one written by my friend, Dr. Archie P. Jones and published by American Vision http://www.AmericanVision.org This book is The Gateway to Liberty–The Constitutional Power of The Tenth Amendment and this book was published back in 2010. This is an informative book and I would recommend it to those who have an interest in the Tenth Amendment. You will learn from what Archie has to say.

He deals with nullification on pages 65-68 and deals with the Bill of Rights and the need for it on pages 108-110. I will give readers some of his commentary here in the hope that you may be interested in getting the book.

Archie writes: “The principle of nullification is essential to federalism, for without it, the state governments are largely defenseless against power-hungry, unscrupulous central government encroachments and usurpations. Nullification laws are laws enacted by a state legislature declaring unconstitutional ‘federal’ (central government) laws to be without authority in the state and rendering such laws inoperative in that state. Without the right of nullification, a state has only the influence it can exert through its elected representatives in the central government to restrain and oppose central government usurpation of the state’s power and authority.” And let’s be honest here–how many of our elected representatives in Sodom on the Potomac are really concerned with protecting the rights of the folks back home? Not nearly enough! Oh, there is a handful that are, but it is only a handful. The rest are busily trying to sell us out to the New World Order because that is where their true allegiance lies–not to the folks that elected them.

Archie continues: “Nullification is a form of interposition; it is a means by which the state’s civil government officials can protect the lives, persons, property and liberty of the people of their state against unconstitutional laws and actions emanating from the ‘federal’ or central government. By extension, if other states are persuaded to join in enacting and enforcing similar legislation, nullification protects the liberty and wellbeing of the people of the whole United States against unjust and unconstitutional laws promulgated by the central government. As a form of interposition, nullification is more than a right of a state’s civil government: it is a moral duty of a state’s civil government and its officials to protect the moral and constitutional liberty of that state’s people against injustice and illegality emanating from the central government…The most important institution of civil government for protecting our liberty in the complex system of civil government bequeathed to us in our Constitution is the government of each state…Obviously they intended the civil government which most affected the lives of Americans to be the state government, not the national government.”

Unfortunately, it has not worked out that way. Too often the federal government has enacted all manner of laws and executive decrees that do not pass constitutional muster and no one has objected to them–least of all our elected representatives!

Nullification, if enacted by the states will begin to shut down this process of our being forced to follow decrees and mandates that are clearly unconstitutional.

I have to note here also that the Kennedy Brothers, Ron and Donnie, have been advocating nullification in their recent books Dixie Rising–Rules for Rebels, and Be Ye Separate–Bible Belt Revival or Marxist Revolution.

The fact that several states are now seeking to enact nullification laws in response to federal tyranny shows that this is an idea whose time has come and the states had better start enacting nullification laws to protect their residents lest we end up becoming just another Communist dictatorship, ruled by a group with an unquenchable lust for power.

Nullification Efforts in Louisiana

by Al Benson Jr.

It seems as if some folks here in Louisiana are beginning to wake up as to the necessity for nullification efforts here in Louisiana.

An article by Zach Parker appeared in the Ouachita Citizen for April 8th. Zach’s article stated: “Local law enforcement officials say they stand behind state Sen. Jay Morris’ legislation clearing citizens to carry a concealed weapon without a permit, though some expressed concern that firearm safety training still take place. Under Senate Bill 118, all persons over the age of 21 who are not convicted felons can carry a concealed weapon without obtaining a concealed carry permit. Morris, a Republican, characterized the purpose of SB 118 as simply confirming each citizen’s constitutional right to bear arms. Last week, the Tennessee Legislature joined 18 other states that have approved permit-less carry, or constitutional carry laws. ‘It’s time Louisiana joined the other 18 states which have passed constitutional carry,’ said Morris of Monroe. ‘This bill really shouldn’t be necessary as our right to bear arms is already established under the Second Amendment and any limitations on that right should be narrow.'”

Let me say at this point that the Ouachita Citizen is the only newspaper in this area that I will read consistently. Zach Parker is one of the few honest journalists I know and his editor seems to have a good grasp of what goes on in the world. Most other papers in this area I can recommend as high quality birdcage liner but that’s about it.

I am sure the federal overlords of federal overreach in Washington would not approve of Senator Morris’ bill. Let’s hope the state legislature here has the guts to support and pass it. However, there are other nullification efforts now going on here in Louisiana.

An article I received just this morning from JBS Action Alerts noted: “House Bill 118 titled the ‘Louisiana Firearm Protection Act is sponsored by Representative Larry Frieman and seven other representatives. If passed, it would be the strongest and most comprehensive gun control nullification bill in the country. HB118 gives a list of policies which might be contained in ‘federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, and regulations that violate the U.S. Constitutions Second Amendment and Article 1 Section 11 of the Louisiana Constitution…Importantly, HB 118 nullifies both past and future unconstitutional firearms restrictions. Additionally, while the bill does not name any specific federal laws, the 1934 National Firearms Act and the 1968 Gun Control Act would effectively be included among the laws nullified.” This should be a bill that every sincere person in Louisiana who is not a radical gun control-oriented leftist could support.

Let us hope and pray that some “suits from Washington” do not show up in Baton Rouge with money or promises in an attempt to subvert or weaken this legislation. Such would not surprise me. We need to lean on our legislators here to get them to support these bills. We need to make it clear to them that if they vote to diminish or do away with our Second Amendment rights then they will be gone in the next election.

Thankfully, nullification efforts are under way here in Louisiana. If nullification efforts do not proceed across this country we will end up living is what amounts to a federal dictatorship sponsored by the Deep State and the creatures that thrive in the Washington Swamp.

Second Amendment Nullification

by Al Benson Jr.

It would seem that the leadership in several states is beginning to recognize the fact that state legislatures have the duty to nullify unconstitutional federal overreach regulations in their respective states. All I can say is that, after seeing the direction the Harris/Biden administration is headed in, it is about time.

An article by Jack Phillips in the April 7th issue of the Epoch Times has noted: “Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey signed legislation on April 6 that would prohibit police and sheriffs in the state from enforcing new federal gun laws that may violate the Constitution’s Second Amendment. Proponents of the bill have argued that it would ensure the rights of gun owners are protected from what they have described as potential overreach by the federal government…” Those who are critical of the bill claim it will hamper cooperation between state and federal officials. Seeing that the feds go into various states and try to force their edicts on state governments, one might question the need for such “cooperation.”

Gun control zealots tried to pressure the governor into vetoing this measure. I suppose their next attempt to take away people’s Second Amendment rights in Arizona will be to issue some sort of recall petition to remove the governor.

In similar legislation, this time in Tennessee, Governor Bill Lee has signed a “constitutional carry bill, also called a “permitless carry bill” into law and the law will go into effect on July 1st. Governor Lee said “I signed constitutional carry today because it shouldn’t be hard for law-abiding Tennesseans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. Thank you members of the General Assembly and NRA for helping get this done.”

And, an article on the New American website just recently noted that “The Governor of Iowa said “Today I signed legislation that protects the 2nd Amendment rights of Iowa’s law-abiding citizens. We will never be able to outlaw or prevent every singled bad actor from getting a gun, but what we can do is to ensure (that) law-abiding citizens have full access to their constitutional rights.” Thus Iowa becomes the 19th state to push back against the Harris/Biden Regimes agenda to disarm honest Americans. Harris/Biden are not really concerned about the criminals among us–they just want to take our guns. that way we can’t defend ourselves from Black Lives Matter or Antifa. Are you beginning to get the picture yet???

There are now 19 states that allow their citizens to exercise the rights guaranteed to them by the Second amendment without asking permission from their state governments first Mark Olivia the director of public affairs at the National Shooting Sports Foundation has said: “Your permit is your Second Amendment right. The idea of having to get a permit to be able to exercise your Second Amendment right t keep and bear arms is antithetical to what your rights are as an American at birth.”

The New American article observes that “In Iowa ,legislators and the governor are posing the solution to the problem of governmental overreach from Washington: passing a law that directly and emphatically opposes the federal tyranny when it comes to gun control.

Of the 19 states that are nullifying federal gun control overreach, I notice that Louisiana is not among them. The Democrat governor here will probably not try to do anything that Biden/Harris do not want him to do. Therefore, it will be up to the state legislature here to resoundingly pass nullification bills that will be aimed at federal overreach and their efforts will have to be strong enough to over-ride his vetoes because he will probably try to veto anything Harris/Biden doesn’t want.

Nullification is an idea whose time has arrived in an era when federal overreach has become an epidemic and the Second Amendment is not the only area that needs to be addressed.

Nullification is Spreading

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Recently I did an article on nullification in Arkansas. As things in this country continue to deteriorate under the Harris/Biden Regime more states are beginning to deal with the process of nullification as noted in the Constitution.

Ron Kennedy, in his informative book Be Ye Separate–Bible Belt Revival Or Marxist Revolution has noted, on pages 62-63 that: “The founding fathers crafted a federal system for a Constitutionally limited Republic of Sovereign States. They understood that no word, sentence, clause, or amendment in the Constitution was self-enforcing. They understood that a free government required moral people. They also understood that, under their system of federalism, the Sovereign States would be able to enforce the Constitutional limitations on the federal government.” This is what nullification was all about–preventing the federal government from going beyond the bounds of what the Constitution allowed. This is something the Feds dearly love to do–make up laws as they go along that will allow them to implement their neo-Marxist agendas. Nullification properly combats this and more states seem to finally be waking up to this.

In Texas, four state legislators have introduced HB1215 (the Texas State Sovereignty Act). If passed this will create in Texas the situation that will enable that state to “review federal actions that challenge the sovereignty of the state and the people for the purpose of determining if the federal action is unconstitutional.” Should any federal act fall into that category the legislators in Texas will then seek nullification from the state’s governor and a majority in both houses of the state government.

The legislature in South Dakota is also considering a bill similar to the one in Texas. And, in Wyoming there is a “Second Amendment Preservation Act” that should nullify federal gun control edicts. Similar nullification bills to protect the Second Amendment have been proposed in Alabama, Missouri, Ohio, and West Virginia. Regarding the Second Amendment, nullification measures have already been enacted in Alaska, Idaho, and Kansas.

And it has been reported that similar proposals are being debated and discussed in the legislatures of Arizona, Arkansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Tennessee. It seems as if many states in the South and West are beginning to grasp the importance of nullification in their honest desire to combat federal overreach. I wonder, at this point, where is Louisiana with its Democratic governor who seems more than willing to go along with any Democratic federal overreach proposed by the current Regime? The state legislature here in Louisiana needs to start looking at the nullification process for this state. So far they have avoided this issue which they should begin to address.

If continued federal overreach is allowed we will, in effect, become just another Marxist dictatorship. That would greatly please the Deep State in Washington but it will be the death knell for our God-given liberties everywhere else. People should start contacting their state legislators and letting them know they want them to start implementing the nullification process in their states.

Nullification in Arkansas

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Just read an article on The Epoch Times web site about the state senate in Arkansas passing a bill banning the enforcement of federal gun control laws.

The article noted that: “The state senate voted this week to block federal law enforcement officials enforcing certain gun laws and regulations, sending the bill to the state House in the midst of congressional gun-control proposals. the Senate voted 28- 7 to approve the measure, which will then be sent to the House. Arkansas’ Legislature is overwhelmingly Republican…the measure will prohibit any law enforcement agencies in Arkansas from cooperating with federal officials to enforce federal gun laws that go in conflict with the rights provided in the Arkansas Constitution, according to Arkansas Online. Some state lawmakers expressed a worry that President Joe Biden would ramp up gun-control measures.”

It’s no secret that Biden and his Marxist vice-president plan to gut the Second Amendment immediately if not sooner, whichever they can get away with. And you can take it to the bank that if the Second Amendment goes by the boards then the other nine original amendments in the Bill of Rights won’t be far behind it. That’s the federal Deep State plan. Trump protected the Second Amendment. Harris/Biden plan to do away with it. Oh, they will claim otherwise, but anyone with a brain knows where they are headed. Once they gut the Second Amendment and have the guns who is to prevent them from doing whatever they darn well please?

What the state of Arkansas is doing with this bill in nullifying unconstitutional federal actions. This is something more and more states need to start doing. Nullification in this country is something that has a long history.

Ron Kennedy, in his new informative little book Be Ye Separate–Bible Belt Revival or Marxist Revolution comments on nullification. On page 29 he observes: “We the people must again reclaim the right to control our state and local communities. We can use that control to nullify anti-Christian acts of the federal government and its bureaucratic Deep State–just like the people of Wisconsin who boldly nullified the Constitutional requirements to return runaway slaves in 1859 As will be explained, America’s founding fathers protected this ability (state nullification etc.) when they crafted the original Constitution…The idea of states having power to nullify laws in the United States goes back to colonial days.” More on Ron’s new book (Xulon Press http://www.xulonpress.com) in future articles.

There is more about state nullification in Ron Kennedy’s book Dixie Rising–Rules for Rebels (Shotwell Publishing, P O Box 2592, Columbia, South Carolina 29202) Ron tells us, on page 48, that “The bottom line is simple: Without real states’ rights, inclusive of the rights of state nullification and secession, we the people are helpless when facing an all-powerful tyrannical Federal Empire. But by passing our proposed constitutional amendment acknowledging the rights of nullification and secession, we the people at the local level will have the power to control ‘our’ federal government.” You need to read Dixie Rising.

State nullification is an idea whose time has come–or rather has come back. Other states are working at passing nullification laws in certain areas, notably Texas and a couple other Western states.

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

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

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!

Is Kamala Harris Eligible To Be President?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

One of the most open “secrets” around is that many in Sodom on the Potomac realize that Joe Biden’s tenure as “president” may not last all that long. His Marxist running mate, who I refer to as “Comrade Kamala” is anxiously waiting in the wings to assume the royal presidency when Joe is told he is no longer necessary and is sent back to his basement bunker in Delaware to smell the daisies.

One thorny problem with all this, though, is that Comrade Kamala is not constitutionally eligible to be either president or vice-president. The New American Magazine for September 21st of 2020 carried an article by Joe Wolverton J.D. in which Mr. Wolverton wrote: “Yet Kamala Harris is constitutionally ineligible to be president of the United States because she is not a natural born citizen, as required by Article II (and by reference, the 12rh Amendment) of the U.S. Constitution. While born in the United States–Oakland, California–at the time of her birth, Kamala Harris’ father was a citizen of Jamaica and her mother was a citizen of India. This makes Kamala Harris a native-born American–thus eligible to serve as a U.S. Senator—but she is not a natural-born citizen, the higher standard set for those occupying the office of president.”

In order for her to have been a natural-born citizen her father would have had to be a U.S. citizen, which he was not at the time of her birth. Another concern shared by many is that her father, according to author Trevor Loudon, was “an avowed Marxist professor in the Economics Department at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California…Both of Harris’ parents were active in the Berkeley based Afro-American Association. Fidel Castro and Che Guevara were the heroes of the Afro-American Association…”

Does all this begin to give you some idea of where Comrade Kamala is really coming from? If it doesn’t then don’t bother reading any of the rest of this as you won’t grasp its implication anyway.

Do I think any of this will make any difference to Harris–the fact of her being constitutionally ineligible to be president? Not in the least! That will all be ignored by both her and our compliant media who have been trained to just look the other way when confronted with an inconvenient truth. The fact of her ineligibility to hold the office will never be brought up and to question her ineligibility may get you labeled as an insurrectionist. Or as a man once said “Truth is treason in the empire of lies.” And that is where we are living right now.

So get ready because this coming Wednesday you will be treated to a faux-inauguration.

Secession Wasn’t, and STILL Isn’t Treason

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

People today, including most on the lower levels of leftism, do not know their history. And this is not accidental. You can’t try to buffalo a people that has a firm grasp of their history because they will laugh in your face. The fact that most people have no grasp of our history only displays the abysmal content of what passes for “history” in the vast majority of public indoctrination centers we mistakenly refer to as public schools. They are not public schools–they are state schools.

Recently, I did an article about the Confederacy and I got an email back calling me a traitor. This from someone whose grasp of our history probably resembles a boll weevils grasp of international politics!

The left vainly seeks to paint secession as treason, yet I have recently noticed that those on the left have threatened to try to get the three states on our Left Coast to secede in order to prevent Trump from being re-elected. Seems they want it both ways–it’s okay for me to secede, but not for thee to secede. If secession was treason for the South then it’s also treason for those on the left that want to use secession as a tool for unseating a duly elected president.

Walter Williams, a professor at George Mason University wrote on 7/24/20 in an article on https://www.pilotonline.com that “The Confederacy has been the excuse for some of today’s rioting, property destruction and grossly uninformed statements. Among the latter is the testimony before the House Armed Services Committee by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley in favor of renaming Confederate-named military bases. He said: ‘The Confederacy, the American Civil War, was fought, and it was an act of rebellion. It was an act of treason, at the time, against the Union, against the Stars and Stripes, against the U.S. Constitution.” If General Milley really believes that then he was taught erroneous American history. And where did he learn such false history? It would be interesting to know the answer to that question, quite revelatory in fact.

Walter Williams did an earlier article on this same subject, back in 2017 on https://thenewamerican.com/were-confederate-generals-traitors/ in that informative article Walter Williams noted that: “During the ratification debates (for the US Constitution) Virginia’s delegates said ‘The powers granted under the Constitution being derived from the people of the United States may be resumed by them whensoever the same shall be perverted to their injury or oppression.’ The ratification documents of New York and Rhode Island expressed similar sentiments.” The ratification documents for these three states were accepted with this language included in all three.

And Walter Williams further noted, in the same article: “At the Constitutional Convention, a proposal was made to allow the federal government to suppress a seceding state. James Madison, the ‘Father of the Constitution,’ rejected it. The minutes from the debates paraphrased his opinion: ‘A union of the states containing such an ingredient (would) provide for its own destruction. The use of force against a state would look more like a declaration of war than in infliction of punishment…’ The U.S. Constitution would have never been ratified–and a union never created–if the people of those 13 ‘free, sovereign and independent States’ did not believe they had the right to secede”

Interestingly enough, though most Americans do not realize it because we are not taught real history anymore, the first secessionist movement in this country started in New England. Many Northern folk did not like it when Jefferson made the Louisiana Purchase and they liked it even less when we got into the War of 1812. The New England states actually met to consider secession at the Hartford (Connecticut) convention in 1814. They didn’t do it because the War of 1812 ended, but I don’t remember anyone calling them traitors for meeting to consider it.

Apparently it’s only treasonous if the South does it.

Gene Kizer on the Charleston Athenaeum Press site wrote back in 2018 that: “The right of secession was not questioned during the antebellum era. It was taught in places like the United States Military Academy at West Point in famous texts such as William Rawle’s ‘A View of the Constitution of the United States of America’.” So General Milley’s calling the South traitors for seceding is totally out of line as is all this leftist howling about secession being treason–except when they want to use it as an excuse for throwing an election. Then it’s okay. Folks if you haven’t noticed to total moral bankruptcy and hypocrisy of the Left then you just haven’t been paying attention!

It’s long past time that people quit parroting the shibboleths of the Left when they don’t know what they are talking about.

“Buy your food from the CIA:…”

I am reposting an important article from Jon Rappoports blog http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com

This is just the way he posted it. I have changed nothing.

Al Benson Jr.

Buy your food from the CIA: Amazon buys Whole Foods

June 19, 2017

When Amazon boss and billionaire Jeff Bezos bought the Washington Post in 2013, he also had an ongoing $600 million contract to provide cloud computing services to the CIA. That meant that the Washington Post, which already had a long history of cooperation with the CIA, renewed their wedding vows with the Agency and doubled down on the alliance.

By any reasonable standard of journalism, the Post should preface every article about the CIA, with a conflict of interest admission: TAKE THIS PIECE WITH A FEW GIANT GRAINS OF SALT, BECAUSE OUR NEWSPAPER IS OWNED BY A MAN WHO HAS A HUGE CONTRACT TO PROVIDE SERVICES TO THE CIA.

Now Bezos and his company, Amazon, have bought Whole Foods for $13.7 billion. Whole Foods is the premier retailer of “natural” foods in America.

The degree of profiling of Whole Foods customers will increase by a major factor. Amazon/CIA will be able to deploy far more sophisticated algorithms in that regard.

It’s no secret that many Whole Foods customers show disdain for government policies on agribusiness, health, medicine, and the environment. Well, that demographic is of great interest to the Deep State, for obvious reasons. And the Deep State will now be able to analyze these customers in finer detail.

At the same time, the Amazon retail powerhouse will exercise considerable control over the food supply, since it will be selling huge numbers of food products to the public. Amazon will have new relationships with all the farmers Whole Foods has been using for suppliers.

Perhaps this disclaimer posted on every Whole Foods item is now in order: KEEP IN MIND THE FACT THAT THE OWNER OF WHOLE FOODS, AMAZON, HAS A VERY TIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH THE CIA. USE YOUR IMAGINATION.

Then there is this. The CIA has its own private company, In-Q-Tel, which was founded in 1999 to pour investment money into tech outfits that could develop new ways to facilitate “data collection,” and service other CIA needs. In-Q-Tel, Jeff Bezos, and Amazon are connected. For example, here is a 2012 article from technologyreview.com:

“Inside a blocky building in a Vancouver suberb,  across the street from a dowdy McDonald’s, is a place chilled colder than anywhere in the known universe. Inside that is a computer processor that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and the CIA’s investment arm, In-Q-Tel believe can tap the quirks of quantum mechanics to unleash more computing power than any conventional computer chip. Bezos and In-Q-Tel are in a group of investors who are betting $30 million on this project…”

Nextgov.com described the deal this way: “Canadian company D-Wave Systems raised $30 million to develop quantum computing systems. Bezos Expeditions, the personal investment company of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and CIA venture capital arm In-Q-Tel participated in the latest funding round, the firm announced. The company’s quantum computing technology seeks to speed up data-crunching. If successful, the technology could aid automated intelligence gathering and analysis.”

Yes, automated intelligence gathering and analysis are exactly what outfits like Amazon and the CIA need for profiling the public. Other companies who have purchased products from D-Wave Systems? Goldman Sachs and Lockheed Martin. Let’s see: Amazon, CIA, Goldman, Lockheed–a formidable collection of Deep State players.

“Buy your food from the purest natural retailer in the world, the CIA. Oops, I mean Amazon. Oops, I mean Whole Foods.”

Can You Begin To See Where “Civil Rights” Is Taking Us?

by Al Benson Jr.

Decades ago now we were told by some in government and in the “news”media that we needed civil rights for blacks to end segregation in the South and so that blacks could begin to be able to vote. So, after multitudinous marches, demonstrations, sit-ins and other media-driven events blacks finally achieved some of those “civil rights” everyone was told they needed. If, at this point, you are going to ask me if I have a problem sitting next to a black family in a restaurant, I don’t. I have no problem with folks all being treated equally. Problem is, that some folks have gotten to the point where they feel they are entitled to be treated more equally than the rest of us, and, as usual, the ruling Marxist Regime in Washington totally agrees with them.

In fact, let’s be rather blunt.  When it comes to equal treatment in this Kountry anymore, white Southern Christians are at the absolute bottom of the totem pole and everyone else is supposed to denigrate them and their accomplishments with equal abandon as history is erased, reconstituted, and historical memory  is obliterated, to be replaced with–well, you don’t want to know with what. That will spoil your supper.

Several months ago, per request, I did an article that appeared in The Free Magnolia, a newspaper put out by the League of the South. The title of the article was The Marxist Side of Civil Rights. For those who have bothered to do any research on the “Civil Rights Movement” they will realize that it had (and has) a Marxist side. The “news” media just doesn’t bother to tell you about that because they and their bosses feel their agenda is better off if you are not aware of that. If you want some good background on this see if you can find Alan Stang’s old book It’s Very Simple–The True Story of Civil Rights.  should be able to locate it on Amazon.com I found it and there are old, used copies for sale. Mr. Stang was a truly investigative researcher and reporter and he researched where media “angels” had been told never to tread.

In our day we have finally reached the point (probably predetermined years ago) where the cultural Marxists have so absorbed and controlled the Civil Rights Movement that it is little more than a living memorial to their efforts to change our society from its Christian base to one that could only be loved by the Sodomite and Transsexual Movements. In fact the Sodomite, Lesbian and Transgender Movements have become the new civil rights! You have to start beginning to realize  that these people now possess all the “civil rights”  and you don’t really have any anymore. What you now have is the “right” to give in to their demands or face government prosecution (persecution) and that’s the only “right” you have left. If that’s too rich for you, then just take a good look at what’s going on around you. People are losing their jobs and their businesses because they refuse to cater to the whims of these people. So, tell me, where are the “civil rights” of those that do not, for Scriptural reasons, choose to go along with all of this? Such rights no longer exist. Somehow, the vaunted Constitution is not protecting us from all this. But, then, does that really surprise you? In spite of all the “conservative” bloviation Congress spreads out there, they, somehow, always manage to go along with whatever perversion the current administration comes up with.

I recently read an article by a New York Times columnist which said that “Christian churches ‘must be made’ to affirm homosexuality.” So who will be entrusted with that sacred mission? Exactly who is slated to make  Christian churches “affirm homosexuality”? Will the federal government do that?  And if so, exactly where are the “civil rights” of those in those churches that refuse to go along with what Scripture clearly condemns? Exactly who is going to force us? I’d like a detailed answer to this one. The Times article noted: “Bruni quoted furniture tycoon Mitchell Gold, who has used millions to found a liberal pressure group Faith in America, writing that Gold believes Christian churches ‘must be made’ to take homosexuality off the sin list.” Such statements from Gold lead me to inquire just where Mr. Gold is regarding religion.

In all honesty, you know who is going to pursue this agenda–the federal government, and they will pressure their minions in many state capitols to push the same agenda.  They will probably start with “suggestions” to the churches about this in their respective areas, then maybe a little subtle pressure, and finally, if some churches refuse to play this game the feds will seek to remove their 501c3 non-tax status until such time as they decide to comply with the federal program. For those that refuse flat out to do this, well, there is always prison–for violating the “civil rights” of the sexual perversion crowd–because, after all, they have “civil rights” and you don’t! Get used to it, folks, this IS the future–unless a goodly number of Christians and churches wake up and resist–and with what I have seen in churches in the last four decades, I really don’t expect that to happen. Oh, some will resist, to their credit, but not enough, and either jail of the FEMA Camp awaits those that do resist.

This is where the “Civil Rights Movement” has taken you folks. Do you like it? While you’ve been sitting in your churches on Sunday listen to your preacher tell you how close the “rapture” is, that it could happen any minute, or that “revival is just around the corner” (I heard that one thirty years ago, and it seems like it’s a long way to the corner) the “Civil Rights” crowd has been slipping the noose around your necks and you haven’t started to feel it until just recently.  They plan to make sure you feel it more before it’s all over.

It seems like it’s about time for a thorough re-evaluation of the “Civil Rights Movement” and just where it has been taking us.
