The Face of Federal Arrogance

by Al Benson Jr.

If you want a good look at the face of classic Federal arrogance look at the face of Peter Strzok during his recent testimony before Congress. He was alternately smug, arrogant, threatening and, worse than that, part of the time he looked almost completely unhinged, like he was about to lose it.

The headline on https://thehornnews.com for July 12th about this august”gentleman” was Disgraced FBI agent screams at Congress over bias questions.

You will recall that Mr. Strzok was the author of numerous emails to his paramour about how bad Trump was and how they had to “stop him” from being president. The emails were bad enough that they got him kicked off the investigation team of the chief witch-hunter, Robert Mueller. His comments were so blatant that Mueller didn’t dare leave him there. His anti-Trump bias was almost malevolent.

Yet when he testified before the congressional committees he had the gall to say that his extreme anti-Trump bias in no way affected his FBI investigation of the phony “Russian collusion” and related events.  If you ever read some of his email messages to his lover you have to realize that his bias against Trump went way beyond extreme. Yet he sat and told the congressmen who questioned him that he in no way let that bias affect his investigative work. Apparently he thinks that Congress and the rest of us are stupid–and the condescending smirk on his face portrayed that amply. He basically told the congressional committee, and by implication, the rest of us, to stuff it. You could see the federal arrogance on his face–I’m part of the Establishment and I don’t have account to you people–I do what I want and if you don’t like it that’s tough!

To the credit of the congressmen they didn’t let up on him and they asked him questions he didn’t like and questions where he tried to hide behind his “classified information” persona. I got the impression he sat there and laughed at the congressmen silently. He thought it was great fun. He’s spent his public career stiffing the public and he likes it because, in his inestimable view, we are not fit to lick his boots. He thinks the same of us all that Hitlery does–a bunch of deplorables that he claims he can smell  when he goes to markets in Virginia.

A little humility would do Mr. Strzok a world of good because he doesn’t seem to possess an awful lot of it. And let’s don’t be dumb enough to let him kid us. His extreme bias against Trump does affect what he does and how he does it and for him to claim it doesn’t is just his lame attempt to spread pure grade bovine fertilizer all over the place to fool what he thinks is a contemptible public.

These “public servants” are anything but that and if you knew what they really thought of us you would positively cringe. But if you want to get even a small idea, look at Strzok’s face on the witness stand. He alternately thinks you are stupid and hates your guts and of course, none of this involves any bias on his part, remember that!

Being Watched Over? Or Just Watched?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

On May 30th Tyler Durden had an informative article up on https://www.zerohedge.com that was written by a former Green Beret on http://www.SHTFplan.com

It was definitely food for thought and something we should be aware of.I am going to quote a bit of it here and urge folks to check it out on their own.

The author wrote: “We have been watching the shift of society and all of its components to collectivist thought and action in preparation for the step into a full-blown totalitarian state. Already the Constitution and our rights enumerated within it have been relegated to impotency and  practically abrogated.”

And he continued: “The key to this has not been the use of force, but the molding of thought and behavior over the decades within the schools, with the fostered predictive programming of pop culture and television, and within the lying, Marxist, mainstream media.”

With the article is sort of a poster, showing a line of kids with the tops of their heads open and something being poured in.The poster reads Education is not a right. Knowledge is power. Power is dangerous. Keep them stupid.

The author observes the increased police presence in schools and then he says: “…as we have seen with the school shootings this year, they certainly aren’t there to protect the students. Police are in schools to enforce conformity and submissive behavior: they’re managing the ‘troupe’ of juveniles, driving the herd. Collective, community thought is the mantra…Gone is  personal development, let alone fun, the latter being archaic and non-utilitarian. In the past 3 to 4 decades, this collective ‘consciousness’ has become the norm. Creative thought is discouraged unless it is directed…directed by authorities or ‘approved’ controllers/managers…”  You might label such people as change agents   because that’s exactly what they are. They are there to change your kids’ mode of thinking from what you taught them to what they want them to “learn.”

One thing this author notes is our “fostered dependency” on electronic gadgets where many, if not most people, think that they absolutely cannot do without them, especially the latest models of most of them. He says “Every week a new report or story surfaces that shows just how far the government and the corporate interests are pushing this electronic dependency, while the schools are shaping the consciousness of the public and  making it ever more malleable. Toward what end? Toward the one that recurs throughout history. We have been warned by Orwell, by Solzhenitsyn,  and many others. Whether we will heed those warnings and take preventive measures remains to be seen…”

The Deep State is all about power (holding onto and expanding it) and money (stealing all they can from the public while telling us it is all for our own good).

No matter who sits in the White House, this continues to go on, and I am not sure any sitting president can really do all that much about it, well intentioned though he might be.

One thing some folks can do, though, is be aware of just how much your pubic school system contributes to all of this and take steps to get your kids out of it and into private Christian education. The public (government) school system is a major contributor to all of this and you need to be aware of that–and act accordingly.

Clapper Thinks Orwellian Doublespeak Covers the Multitude Of His Sins

 

By Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

 

Over the past several days I have been reading internet articles pertaining to some of the Deep States efforts to destabilize the Trump presidency. The Deep State swamp dwellers are all cultural Marxists, which means they pull some really dirty tricks and then proceed to accuse their enemies of doing exactly what they have just done.

Like regular doctrinaire Marxists, who are their spiritual second cousins, they are also adept at twisting language around so their filthy deeds appear somehow noble and chock full of virtue.

One case in point is Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has been caught numerous times in various stages of prevarication in front of congressional committees. To just accuse him of lying would be a gross insult to all the honest liars in the world. Clapper has the ability to verbally take a sow’s ear and transform it into a silk  purse—one made out of solid gold—provided you don’t look too close!

There was an article on https://www.zerohedge.com for May 25th  where Mr. Clapper duly noted that the FBI wasn’t really spying on Trump. All it was doing was practicing “benign information gathering” in regard to those scores of Russian agents they seem to think were infesting the Trump campaign. Clapper went so far as to criticize Trump for complaining about any FBI spies, claiming Trump should have been grateful to the FBI that they were spying on  him. If you were foolish enough to believe what the Deep State denizens said you’d think everyone but Putin’s third cousin was knee-deep in the Trump campaign.

So let’s get this straight. Stefan Halper, who was just recently outed as the FBI’s informant after he infiltrated the Trump campaign wasn’t really a “spy” against Trump. In reality, he was merely a “benign information gatherer” against the Russians and for the FBI and Trump ought to give him a gold medal for what he did. Anyone believing a word of this cockamamie pile of cow chips, as much of the media seems to have, has to have horse feathers for brains. “Benign information gatherers” my foot! These people (and it now turns out Halper may not have been the only one) were spying on the Trump campaign plain and simple. Now they are playing the Orwellian doublespeak card because they are beginning to realize, in spite of their own insufferable arrogance, they could be  in deep  trouble because Hillary didn’t steal the presidency and therefore, they risk exposure for their illegal activities.

Then there was the Washington Mullah, John Brennan, who was duly noted in an article on https://spectator.org on May 18th. The Spectator article observed: “But make no mistake about it: that the FBI and the CIA, on little more than the say-so of a virulent Trump hater like Brennan were meeting to spy on the campaign of Hillary’s opponent makes Watergate look like a tenth-rate burglary. Nixon, at his most Machiavellian, wouldn’t have thought to form a ‘working group at Langley’ against McGovern. But Obama, via Brennan, did the equivalent for Hillary.  For all intents and purposes, Crossfire Hurricane did not begin in July 2016 but at the moment Trump emerged as Hillary’s rival.  Brennan, shortly thereafter, was bringing CIA agents, FBI agents, NSA agents, and an assortment of Obama’s political aides together in one room at CIA headquarters to bat around ideas on how to smoke out the campaign of   Hillary’s opponent. Out of these meetings came the plot to infiltrate the Trump campaign.” And you have to understand, Messrs, Clapper and Brennan and the rest of this assemblage all did this solely for the purpose of “benign information gathering.” No harm intended toward the Trump campaign at all—they just wanted to smoke out all those evil Russians Trump had in his campaign—even though no one had even brought up the subject at that point.

I  haven’t said hardly anything about  Operation Crossfire Hurricane up to this point and it would make for a long article to try to fit it in here, and I have already had a few complaints about my articles being way too long for some folks. So to deal with this subject I will give you a link to a blog spot that does have an article about it up—back on May 20th. The blog spot is https://lamecherry.blogspot.com and it has an article, almost ten pages long on Operation Crossfire Hurricane that explains what it was and lists all the usual suspects involved with it, FBI agent Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page among them. It is worth checking out. Part of the Lame Cherry expose is an article from July 11, 2015, the title of which is Bill Clinton Tells Jeb Bush, “This Trump Thing Will Be Taken Care Of.”

Seems like they are still working on that and it hasn’t gone quite as well as they had hoped.

I Don’t think it would be out of line for Christians to actively pray that the bottom would fall out of the Deep States “benign information gathering” effort and that their efforts to get Hillary into the White House no matter what would be exposed. In order for the Deep State to succeed, the will of the American electorate must be thwarted, whatever the cost and whoever gets hurt.ill H

America’s Second “Civil War”–Part Two

 

By Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

 

The Epistle of James in the New Testament says, in verse one, chapter 4 that: “From whence cometh wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?”

And what are some of those lusts? The lust for power over others; the lust for economic gain gotten at the expense of others;  the lust to exercise total control over the lives of others because you think you are, somehow, entitled to that control-and besides, you really want it even if you are not entitled to it. You want to be a “god” and be able to lord it over the rest of us mere mortals (can anyone say Hillary or Obama)?

This isn’t a new phenomena. It goes back to the Tower of Babel, or even back to Genesis 3 where the serpent asked Eve “Yea, hath God said Ye shall not eat  of every tree in the garden?” So, the lust for war that you might have power over others is not new.

James Ronald Kennedy just recently wrote an article for the Confederate Veteran in which he noted: “In our ‘modern’ politically correct times it seems progressives, liberals and secular humanists who control society are working to increase hatred while playing a major role in justifying and encouraging evil. The current epidemic of hatred in the United States did not suddenly spring forth out of nothing but has long, bloody and evil historical roots—roots which extend deep into the cold, rocky soil of New England…The South has been on the receiving end of Northern hatred from the beginning of these United States. But this Northern hated has always presented itself as ‘good’.” I can attest to the truth of Ron Kennedy’s statements. I grew up in New England and can attest firsthand to the damage done by the Unitarian apostasy that came out of there. It has affected this country since at least the early 1800s and was subtly responsible for the society I grew up in. That’s not to say there are not good and decent folks in New England. There are. But they have grown up in the same atmosphere I grew up in and we were all influenced to some degree by it—and not for the better!

This situation, by extension, is responsible for much of the hatred and cultural warfare we have seen in this country. Much of the cultural and theological Left in this country today is little more than a modern extension of the  Unitarianism, Transcendentalism, and Utopian socialism of the early 19th century. Abolitionist/terrorist John Brown and ISIS and Black Lives Matter would have loved one  another! Their worldviews would have been almost identical. And these modern incarnations of John Brown continue today to try to destroy any real culture left in America—be it in the South or the West. And those that finance and support their efforts at the destruction of our culture are not all that different from the creature that said to Eve in the garden “Hath God said…?” They all have the same father (of lies).

You can’t sit down and “dialogue” with these people today anymore than you could with their Unitarian/abolitionist/socialist spiritual  ancestors. Then, as now, they had (and have)  an agenda—the total  destruction of any remaining American, Christian culture and that being the case, all you can do if you deign to sit with them is decide how much  Christian truth you are willing to sacrifice and  how much of their socialist hogwash you are willing to embrace.

So, if we end up with “another civil war” there can be no “bi-partisanship” as such because they are committed to your destruction and you better realize that right off! They have one worldview and we have another—and each is committed to the destruction of the other. The two worldviews are totally at odds culturally, politically, and economically—and theologically!

California is a grand example of this. In their socialist worldview they are at least fifteen years ahead of the rest of the country, except possibly New York and New England. Part of their agenda is what has been called “the browning of America.” For those who don’t know, that means culturally changing America from what she has been into Third World status.

More to come, Lord willing.

The Mainstream Media Is A Fraud

)

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Anyone who has followed the machinations of what we affectionately call the Main Stream Media (MSM) knows that what I have stated above in the title of this article is nothing new.

The so-called “news” media (really Fake News media) has not been about real news probably at any point in my lifetime. I have watched situations I have been involved with as they were “reported” by the MSM and what they report is usually totally at variance with what actually happened. They don’t report the news. That’s not really their job, although they try to con the public into thinking it is. Their real job is to spin the news so it comes across in a way that satisfies those who pay them. Reporting real, accurate news is last on their list of  priorities.

And these “news anchors” on CNN and MSNBC  and other mainstream sites are beyond ludicrous. In fact, they stretch all the way to ridiculous. How anyone can sit through more than ten seconds of their Leftist drivel is beyond me.

An interesting column appeared on http://www.thefederalist.com on 11/15/16, written, I think, by a John Daniel Davidson. He refers to a column by Margaret Sullivan in the Washington Post in which she is “concerned” about free speech during a Trump presidency.

Davidson noted that: “The column itself is a fine example of an emerging subgenre of post-election journalism that pretends to care about free speech now that Trump has won the White House. The great irony of these missives is that the outlets publishing them didn’t  seem to care all that much during Barack Obama’s tenure in  office. They were willing to either turn a blind eye to the administration’s attacks on the First Amendment, or actively cheer these on.” The article notes that the Left has a First Amendment problem. It points to liberal (really Leftist) professors and college campuses around the country that have a big problem with conservative speakers. In spite of what they claim, the real motto of the Leftists is Free  speech for me, but not for thee. The true shallowness of their positions stands out in an honest debate and they realize that, so honest debate must be shut down. The “news” media, who have the same bosses as the Leftists on campus are more than happy to accommodate their Comrades in academia.

The article also observed: “Clinton ran  for president on a platform that included amending the Constitution specifically to ban criticism of her. She’s not alone. In 2014, every Democratic member of the Senate voted to overturn Citizens United by Amending the First Amendment to give Congress broad powers to suppress political speech through campaign finance reform.” Don’t recall the “news” media having a lot to say about that.

Another article on the same site for 2/15/18 said: “Half the country  wants to know why the press won’t cover the growing scandal now implicating the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice, and threatening to reach the State Department, Central Intelligence Agency, and perhaps even the Obama White House.”

The answer to that one is simple. Now that all this “Russian collusion with Trump” has proven to be nothing more than a bunny trail of gigantic proportions the real direction of actual Russian collusion has pointed at Hillary and her good buddies in the FBI, and  our  intrepid “news” media ain’t about to touch any of that  with a ten-foot pole. The public is not supposed to be aware of all that and the news media, so called, will try to keep us busy with other distractions so we pay no attention to the Hillary and Putin Uranium One Show (featuring Bill Clinton and his amazing half million dollar speech in Moscow)

So, folks, this is  what our “news” media is really all about–smoke and mirrors and make sure you don’t pull  that curtain back too far or you might actually see that nasty little man, George, that is running much of this machine and paying for what he can’t run himself.

We need to begin to realize that what the “news” media refuses to deal with is actually much more important than the frivolities  they spread in front of us to distract us from the real truth. To say that the mainstream media are liars would be charitable. Start checking out alternative media if you want to know what really goes on.

Google Loves Hillary

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Google is supposed to be a legitimate search engine where you can look up material that has been posted in an unbiased manner. Somehow this mild description doesn’t seem to fit Google anymore. It would seem that Google has become just another engine of the Far Left to promote Hillary, no matter what. And this didn’t happen the day before yesterday.

According to an article posted on http://www.zerohedge.com that was written by Mac Slavo for SHTFplan.com Google is anything but unbiased and objective.

In fact, Mr. Slavo noted that: “Google was the Clinton campaign’s largest corporate contributor.  Google employees, including at least six high-ranking executives, donated more than $1.3 million to Clinton’s 2016 campaign.” Such numbers hardly indicate objectivity. What they indicate is a pro-Hillary bias that those who use Google need to be aware of when they  search Google for anything having to do with Hillary and her Deep State associates.

Slavo observed that: “New research shows just how much Google’s search manipulation  affects voters when making decisions. During the 2016 election, it was obvious that Google manipulated searches to favor Hillary Clinton while showing disproportionately negative stories about Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. And now we know just how effective all that had been, and it almost left us with Hillary as president.” That was the idea boys!

Mac Slavo stated that Hillary might have even lost by a bigger margin “had Google not manipulated the search results in her favor. Even trending negative searches about the corrupt Democrat were suppressed.”

Perhaps Slavo’s most telling statement was “The research showed that the manipulation of results pages in search engines can shift the voting preferences of undecideds by anywhere between 20 and 80 percent, depending  on the demographic–meaning Google was attempting to rig the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton.”

Think about that the next time you pick a search engine to look for something and think you are getting an objective list of views from Google. Depending on the subject of the search, you are getting only what Google wants you to get and what they would rather you didn’t see ends up down the memory hole.

They operate on the same principle as the publishers of public school “history” books do. Slavo feels that much of  the collusion during the 2016 election was “…not between Trump and the Russians, but was between tech giants and their propaganda scheme and the Hillary Clinton campaign.” Knowing the low way that Hillary and associates operate, can you really disagree???

Maybe that’s one of the reasons Hillary is still griping about the results of the election. All the crooked and devious schemes she and her friends pulled off didn’t work out when they should have and she’s wondering who screwed up where that caused her to lose.

The one variable that Hillary forgot to reckon with is that there is a Sovereign God in Heaven that is concerned with the affairs of men, and  no matter how much political clout she may think she has, she is  not about to get a “get  out oft jail free” card from Him. She needs to think about that. I doubt that she will, but she should.

“Maryland, my (home schooling) Maryland”

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Home schooling is one of those things that scares the living daylights out of the Educational Establishment and the Deep State. Home schooling, and Christian education in general tend to be areas where the participants  do not always (usually) accept the Establishment version of history and/or politics.

From time to time, as they feel they can get away with it, the “change agents” in the educational bureaucracy  seek to remedy this situation by trying to find reasons to enforce new controls that will give them more power and control over home schooling, its curriculums, and its participants.

During the 1980s Rev. Paul Lindstrom, of the Church of Christian Liberty in Illinois, traveled around the country testifying in various court cases that helped and enabled parents to regain their right to home school their children which had been usurped by the Educational Establishment. By the late 1980s, home schooling was legal, in one form or another, in all the 50 united States. That fact did not, and does not, however, prevent the Establishment Education Czars from looking for any chance they can to reverse that trend–and if they can’t reverse it they can at least try to again regulate home schooling almost out of any real existence.

So it was no surprise to me when I came across an article on http://www.thefreethoughtproject.com  by Matt Agorist for March 11, 2018 that dealt with the latest attempted Establishment Educational usurpation in Maryland.

Mr. Agorist wrote: “Under the guise of preventing child abuse, lawmakers in Maryland have introduced a bill that will allow the state to intrude in the lives of innocent families, keeping tabs on them, and destroying their right to privacy. The bill, HB 1798–County Boards of Education–Home Instruction Program–Observation of Instruction and Reporting of Abuse and Neglect,  lays out some fairly ominous requirement that will persecute otherwise entirely innocent families for doing nothing other than teaching their children at home…The bill also lays out the framework for involuntary home inspections in which state agents will enter a family’s home multiple times a year–likely unannounced–and observe and inspect the homeschooling process.”

It seems as though there was a family in California that was guilty of massive child abuse and they were registered as home schoolers. So now the Education Czars in that “Sanctuary State” have automatically assumed that all home schools are probably guilty of those same abuses and need to be constantly regulated so they aren’t beating and starving their kids. It’s the same old bureaucratic “You’re guilty until you prove yourself innocent” routine that is practiced by so many government types in their efforts to gain control over other people’s lives. This is one thing politicians and bureaucrats always seek to do to justify their existence. They have to try to run everyone’s life, down to the minutest detail because, somehow, that seems to give them some sort of power trip. Being control freaks is what they live for. And it would seem that the “change agent” Educational Czars in Maryland have taken note of this instance in California and seen a real possibility in their state to assume more control over the lives of a group of people they only tolerate because the present state law forces them to.

It’s somewhat the same situation you see with all these school shootings. Some Leftist nut, usually on some exotic type of medication, kills a batch of kids and teachers in a school “gun free” zone and the bureaucratic  conclusion is that all gun owners must be potential terrorists and need to be regulated (and their weapons hopefully confiscated) as soon as possible, if not sooner!

Mr. Agorist accurately notes that: “Instead of realizing that the problem of child abuse has nothing at all to do with homeschooling,  lawmakers across the country are using this moment to demonize parents who wish to teach their children outside of the state…The audacity of the state to require that your children be inspected by them to prove that you are not guilty of child abuse is stunning and speaks to the nature of the cradle to grave mentality of the almighty controllers.” If this trend is allowed to continue it could, again, reduce the fundamental right of parents to home school their children back to the status of yet another state-regulated entity. I am sure that possibility has not been lost on the Educational Elite who seek to indoctrinate your children rather than letting you educate them.

Let’s don’t kid ourselves. This, in spite of the Establishment’s pious pleading, is not about the welfare of children–it is about who will control how they are educated and what they are taught. To educate your children is a parental right, and the Educational Elite (a major part of the Deep State Swamp) is not about to allow parents to assume this God-given responsibility  without a struggle to deprive those parents of that right.
