Trump, the Lying Media, and “Christian” Marxism

by Al Benson Jr.

Today (2/16) I watched a news conference given by Donald Trump. Confronted by a whole hoard of mostly hostile media carnivores, Mr. Trump managed to hold his own and even get in a few licks. He didn’t take any baloney from them and even threw back a couple questions at them that none of them dared answer. The vitriolic attitude of what passes for the “news” media was never more apparent and Mr. Trump told them, right out, at one point,  that “No one  believes you anymore.” I must say it was quite refreshing to see someone tell the prostitute press off. It has been decades coming, and they don’t like it. Maybe we should see about reserving  a crying room in the basement of the Washington Post for them.

Trump asked the media people right out, where they were getting all the classified information about what was going on in his administration, information no one is supposed to be aware of, yet they are reporting their skewed version of it on TV and in news articles. Obviously there seems to be someone in Mr. Trump’s administration that is playing Brutus to his Caesar, which, given the Shadow Government’s desire to destroy his administration, should surprise no one. Whoever this person or persons is,  they need to be given the boot and sent back to crawl under their Leftist rocks along with Obama’s Organizing for Action and other Far Left radical groups, many of which are funded by George Soros.

For those of you that think you have seen the last of the Clintons and Comrade Obama, disabuse yourselves of that silly notion right now. Those people mean to rule us, whether we want them or not, by hook or by crook (and knowing the Clintons it will be mostly “crook”).

There was an article on http://www.lewrockwell.com this morning, written by Joseph Smith that originally appeared in American Thinker. Mr. Smith has observed that: “Persistent rumors of Hillary Clinton’s 2020 presidential aspirations are not sitting well with the left-wing media. Matt Latimer claims he can prove that Hillary is ‘running again’:  And the facts are clear that the former secretary of state is doing everything she needs to do to run for the White House one more time. If she finds a path to do so, she will take it…” And he noted some of Latimer’s commentary: “Most defeated rivals disappear after their loss. Instead, Clinton sounded very much like she was still on the campaign trail. (Because, of course, she is.)…Clinton is not going to spend the rest of her life haunted by the question of ‘what if?’ What if I could run again– and win? Besides,  seeking the White House has been her aspiration for decades. What else is there for her to do? Yet, barring some calamity, Clinton is running.” And besides, who else will give Obama the third term he’d dearly love to have (and would have seized if he thought he could get away with it). For some reason, George Soros, who pulls his marionette strings, wouldn’t let him, but like Hillary, unfortunately, he hasn’t gone away either. He is sitting two miles from the White House, doing as much damage to the Trump presidency as he possibly can. Mark my words, the American public is yet going to have to deal with this loathsome pair again unless the Lord intervenes.

On top of all this Leftist garbage still floating down the Potomac,  we have another article, also from http://www.lewrockwell.com authored by Christopher Manion, the title of which was Do Catholic Bishops Miss Obama?  You might as well ask if the Pope was Catholic–the answer to both questions would be the same. Mr. Manion, who is Roman Catholic, knows where the Catholic Church is coming from, at least at the leadership level, and he exposes that quite plainly. He noted that: “Donald Trump has scared the devil out of America’s Catholic bishops. They have supported the Democratic agenda for so long–global warming, amnesty, raising the minimum wage, and national health care–that they can’t seem to let go…Given Trump’s reversal of Obama’s pernicious policies, why aren’t Catholic bishops cheering? Why haven’t they told the faithful and the public that at last we have a president who defends the rights of the unborn, who defies the United Nations bureaucrats, global warming and population control, andd who will put families and not bureaucrats back in charge of their children’s schools? In various ways I have asked countless bishops this question, and none of them will answer.” What does that tell you about the Catholic bishops? It should tell you something, if you still have the ability to think. How many of them really care about the rights of the unborn–if those rights happen to get in the way of an Obama or Clinton agenda? Catholic folks need to start asking their bishops these questions, and expecting coherent answers from them instead of theological gobbledygook.

Years ago I recall talking to a Presbyterian missionary in South America. While down there he came into contact with lots of Catholic priests in the area he was in and he observed that, although they were personally sociable to him, “They were all Marxists.” And lest anyone think I am picking on the Roman Catholics, there are lots of Evangelical Protestants that fall into this same category, some without even realizing it. But some do. The Christian Church, whether it realizes it or not, has a Leftist problem it is going to have to deal with some day.

Mr. Trump has people in his administration that he will have to deal with because they are not there to advance his agenda but are rather there to promote the program of the Shadow Government at the expense of his agenda. And the Church has the same problem,  with some in it who would rather point people to the tenets of Marxism than to the Sermon on the Mount–and the Church will, at some point, have to deal with that and expose it.

“Organizing for Action” and Destabilizing Trump’s Presidency

by Al Benson Jr.

That infamous “community organizer” Barry Sotero, aka Barack Obama, is on the march again, seeking to tear down what he was not able to on his first go-round and making sure no one rebuilds on the Marxist rubble he created. He is using a non-profit 501c4 organization called Organizing for Action to do it.

While most presidents leave the office of president to the person that follows them, Mr. Obama has no intention of doing that. If he couldn’t destroy the country while he was in office then his next attempt will be to try to destroy the man who is trying to save it.

An article by Paul Sperry on http://nypost.com for February 11th explains how he plans to do just that. Mr. Sperry noted in his article that Comrade Obama was encouraged by the spate of anti-Trump protests that “spontaneously” erupted across the country (and do you wonder who paid for all of them)?  Mr. Sperry observed: “Yes, Obama has an army of agitators, numbering more than 30,000–who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working…to set up what will effectively be a shadow government (emphasis mine) to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular ‘America First’ agenda.”  Which fact shows you that, while he was in office, he had no interest whatever in making America stronger or more independent. Indeed, his agenda was just the opposite–and I restate that for those folks that haven’t figured that out yet! Believe it or not,there are still some.

He is doing this, in part, through what Mr. Sperry calls “a network of leftist non-profits led by Organizing for Action.” Tax records show this “non-partisan” group maintains 32,525 volunteers across the country, with over 250 offices across the country. And this “non-partisan” group has raised over $40 million since it “evolved” from busying itself at raising money for his re-election campaign. Where do you suppose all those millions came from? If we follow the media “goob and truckle” that is dished out to us we are supposed to believe that they came from $5 and $10 donations from poor, struggling Leftists all across the country who just couldn’t bear the thought of all the damage a Trump presidency would do to their “people’s republic.” Believe that one and I have a bridge in Tucson, Arizona I will sell you cheap–and it’s made from genuine gold bricks, too!

So let’s cut to the chase. Organizing for Action is a Leftist group that is out to destroy the Trump presidency. How many articles have you seen in the (Lame/Mainstream Media) about this?  I didn’t think so, neither have I.

How many of you have ever seen a presidential election season where the former president moved two miles from the White House and had an organization under his command that worked to destroy the administration of his successor? This has got to be a first! And that fact should tell you something.

Think about the implications of that. In the lifetimes of many of us (I am 78 years old) this has never happened. That means the Ruling Establishment, the Deep State, the Shadow Government, or whatever you want to call them,have had control of every election in my lifetime, so there was never any need for this kind of action because they controlled both parties. The only minor exceptions were Barry Goldwater in 1964 and George Wallace in 1968. Goldwater they handled without too much trouble because the media snowed everyone with “fake news” about him. In 68 George Wallace gave them a bit more trouble–and when he ran again in 72 they arranged to take care of that little problem. Wallace wasn’t “one of the boys” so he had to go. Trump isn’t “one of the boys” either, and he has made it all the way to the presidency, something Wallace never did–so they have got to totally destabilize  his presidency and wipe out all the cancellations of the Obama agenda that he has made. Either that or they have got to totally co-opt his administration–and they are working on that angle too. Witness the recent resignation of General Flynn. So who do they go after next?

Our unelected rulers are worried this time and it is causing them to react in ways they ever had to before. Who knows, in their paranoia and panic, they might even end up making some monumental goof. After all, the Lord is able to make them screw up in some colossal way should He so decide. Might be something we all should pray for.

The First Church of Orthodox Leftism

by Al Benson Jr.

For years I have said that, at root, Leftism is really more religious than political. As a “religion” it usually manifests itself through political activism, but that activism is rooted in Leftist theology. If you want a brief description of Leftist theology you could sum it up with these three devout beliefs of those on the Left–Jesus is not the Christ; there is no such thing as original sin; and all private property is theft (except theirs).

Most Christians fail to grasp the theological implications of the Leftist worldview. All they see are the political events that transpire from that worldview and they never connect the dots that go from religious faith to political activism.

On February 6th I read an excellent article by Kurt Schlichter, originally posted at Townhall, but also posted on http://flyoverpress.wordpress.com that described, theologically, where the Leftists really are and I am going to quote somewhat from Mr. Schlichter’s article so you all will grasp the theological implications of what he has said. He has really nailed it. For starters he has said, quite accurately, “Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will need to understand what you need to be ready to do.”

He then describes Leftist theology to a tee. He stated: “You are normal, and therefore a heretic. You refuse to bow to their idols, to subscribe to their twisted catechisms, to praise their false gods. This is unforgivable. You must burn.” He noted that if you think this sounds crazy, just get on the social media and find a “convenient” Leftist to dialogue with. And he said “Just say something positive about America or Jesus and they’ll come swarming like locusts. Engage them and very quickly they will drop their masks and tell you what they think. I know. I keep a rapidly expanding file of Twitter leftist death wish screenshots…They will tell you that Christians are idiots and vets are scum. That normals are subhumans whose role is to labor as serfs to subsidize the progressive elite and its clients. That you should die to make way for the New Progressive Man/Woman/Other.” I can identify with some of this as I have gotten emails over the years from Leftists who have been, shall we say, slightly less than charitable.

And he observed that when they called Donald Trump “illegitimate” what they were really saying is that our wanting to govern ourselves is illegitimate. Their gripe isn’t just with Trump, it’s with all of us “deplorables” us normal people “who dared to rise up and demand their right to participate in the rule of this country and this culture. They hate you, because by defying them you have prevented them from living up to the dictates of their false religion. Our rebelliousness has denied them the state of grace they seek, exercising their divine right to dictate every aspect of our puny lives.”

He noted different sects in the First Orthodox Church of Leftism, those who want to kill babies as a “blasphemous” sacrament right along side the “High Priests” of the global  warming cabal. But he observed one thing in regard to these different sects in the First Church of Leftism: “…they have found revealed truth, and imposing it upon the benighted normals like us is so transcendentally important that they are relieved of any moral limitations…They are fanatics, and by not surrendering, by not kneeling, and by not obeying, you have committed the unpardonable sin. You have defied the Left, and you must be broken…whatever it takes to break you and terrify others by making you an example, your defiance cannot stand…They must crush this rebellion of the normal, and absolutely nothing is off the table.” The end truly justifies the means for this religious faith.

To say that the Leftists are enemies to the Christians is to put it mildly. So how do Christians deal with that? How do you love enemies like these who are out to destroy our faith, your culture, and everything you believe in and stand for? I have to tell you honestly–for me that ain’t real easy. In fact I have struggled with that over the years and awhile back I talked to a Christian pastor who gave me some advice in this area that I could grasp. He said: “You love your enemies by exposing the evil that they do.”

He noted that showing love for your enemies (and the Church’s enemies) entailed showing them, in love, where their false religions were taking them and what the end result would be for them. And then you pointed them to the Only Way (John 14:6) this problem could be resolved. If they chose not to believe, then they had (and have) a problem. And if they sought to compel you, by whatever means, if giving in to their Leftist whims violated God’s will, you had (and have) the right to resist.

So it seems to me, as a Christian, that I can show love for my enemies by hating evil, by exposing evil, and by resisting evil. So, if the First Church of Orthodox Leftism is evil, you hate it, then you work to expose what it really is, and then you resist it because you dare not give into it. To do that would be evil and Scripture tells us to “resist the devil.”

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

by Al Benson Jr.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The “News” Media Really IS The Prostitute Press

by Al Benson Jr.

Thank the Lord there are still a handful of honest newspapers out there, mostly at the local level. Most anything above that level has by now been thoroughly prostituted or co-opted.

What passes for the “news” media today is really nothing more than a travesty, which, if it were not so tragic for the country, would be laughable.

However, at the local level, there is still some hope. I recently read an editorial in The Ouachita Citizen  http://www.ouachitacitizen.com  published in West Monroe, Louisiana, that actually told the truth about the Clinton Family, something you seldom see in the managed and bought-and-paid-for media. In fact the editorial indicted the mainstream media, and justifiably so.

It said, in part, “Never have we seen the mainstream media so corrupt. That offering is an odd way to begin an editorial endorsement for President of the United States, but it is necessary to point to the corruption in the media in order to understand this election. Why is this necessary?  Simply put, Hillary Clinton–along with her gang of thieves at the Clinton Foundation including her husband–is corrupt and their corruption is being ignored by major corporate outlets that claim to serve as legitimate news services…Bluntly put, the media covers for Clinton and obviously has decided that her corruption must be tolerated in order to stop Donald Trump.” That’s a sound observation. A “news” media willing to sweep Clinton corruption under the rug in order to help stop a candidate who might expose that corruption makes itself part and parcel of that corruption.

The Ouachita Citizen editorial had much more of substance to say that I cannot cover here, but one other comment it made was very telling. It said: “To surmise, the mainstream media’s corruption centers on changing America…For the mainstream media, this election is not just about beating Trump. It’s about beating the idea of an American nation state. It’s about beating those Americans, as President Obama said eight years ago, ‘who cling to their guns and their Bibles’.”

In other words, the mainstream media has the same vision for us that Clinton and Obama have–reducing our standard of living and our faith and cultural traditions so that we can be comfortably merged into some sort of a socialist one world government. The “news” media will never openly admit this but that’s where they are trying to take us without appearing to do so–and they are hoping most Americans will not catch on until it is too late. Their problem is that more Americans are catching on–which is one reason why Obama has been in a sweat to have the United Nations or some agency under their control take control over and start to regulate the Internet. At all costs, they have to prevent too many Americans from learning the truth.

So what does that tell you about Clinton, Obama, and the “news” media? If you woke up this morning and smelled the coffee it should tell you this–your faith, culture, family, way of life and your history are in their crosshairs and they mean to do away with all of it as quickly we they can. These people do not have your best interests or welfare at heart, no matter how many crocodile tears they claim to shed in behalf of the “poor and downtrodden.”

They are on a power trip and they will have no hesitation whatever about grinding your nose into the mud, as they climb over your body, on their way to constructing a 21st century, socialistic Tower of Babel. And the “news” media is part and parcel  of this effort–willing accomplices!

So what can you do? You can, for starters, go vote and vote to make sure Comrade Hillary does not make it into office. And then you can pray–and ask that the Lord’s will be done in regard to these people. Check out the imprecatory psalms in the Bible and find out which ones apply to our present and would-be leaders–and start praying about them using these psalms. That may not seem like much, but do not underestimate the power of prayer. Millions of praying believers will make a difference. You may not notice it right away but it will. The preservation of your faith, culture, and country will be worth the effort.

Establishment Double Standard–one set of rules for us and another for them

by Al Benson Jr.

It should be overtly obvious by now that the Ruling Political Establishment,  composed of both Republicans and Democrats, is not subject to the same rules and laws they make for the rest of us. We are held to a rigid standard and they are held to no standard except “the end justifies the means.” They are allowed to do whatever they want in their pursuit of the New World Order. They are, truly, above the law unless they tick off someone higher up in the echelons and then they might be prosecuted, not because it fulfills the law,  but rather because it fulfills some vengeful spirit’s spur of the moment anger that his or her edicts were not followed according to their wishes. Welcome to 21st century Amerika! It’s where “good is evil and evil is good.”

I have read more articles of late than I care to mention about what goes on in the country and believe me, it is not an exercise in delight and happiness. People who think I look mad all the time should read some of the stuff I have to read.

I checked my email this morning, to find 600 messages on it, some adds, a handful personal communications and the rest articles or research material about the sad state of the country. I will share just a few so you get the idea.

This from http://www.westernjournalism.com the headline for which was: “Hidden Camera Catches Clinton Campaign Approving Destruction Of GOP Voter Registration Forms.” The article goes on to explain how a hidden camera caught a field organizer for Hillary’s campaign in Florida okaying  the destruction of Republican voter registration forms by someone who posed as a campaign worker.

A reporter for Project Veritas Action pretended to be a campaign worker and told the Clinton field organizer he had ripped up a batch of GOP voter registration forms and he asked the field organizer if he “was okay with that.” He replied “yeah.” When he said he was concerned he might get in trouble for doing that the field director “assured him it was OK and he would not be reporting the incident.  As long as you don’t make it a habit.” The field director was later asked about this incident and denied he’d ever had the conversation, as he took off for his vehicle and left the area. The article continued: “This is not the first time the Clinton campaign has been secretly videoed seemingly condoning questionable voter registration practices.” If this had been a Republican field director doing this it would have been all over the papers and the TV news but because it was Hillary’s people it gets ignored.

And then this article from The Washington Times which appeared on http://www.washingtontimes.com which was headlined: “Clinton campaign mocks Catholics, Southerners, ‘needy Latinos’ in emails.” The article was written by Ben Wolfgang and appeared on October 12, 2016. Some of this material came from the Wikileaks emails. Mr. Wolfgang wrote: “Long before Hillary Clinton called millions of Americans a ‘basket of deplorables,’ her top campaign advisers and liberal allies open mocked Catholics, Southerners and a host of other groups, according to newly released emails that offer a stunning window into the vitriol inside the Clinton world less than a month before election day…The sheer number of insults in the email trove has left the Clinton campaign, along with outside organizations such as the Center for American Progress that were routinely involved in the brutal bad-mouthing, unable or unwilling to respond.” So instead of responding they are trying to blame Russia for the hacks. The old “bait and switch” tactic. So us rubes out here in flyover country really know what Hildebeast thinks of us. Why anyone would want to support this woman, with her record, is beyond me. Her campaign engages in the same schlock stuff they blame the Trump campaign for doing, but because its Hillary and her friends, why that’s okay.

It’s right for Hillary but wrong for Trump! It’s cultural Marxism in living color! And then there was an article on http://www.infowars.com by Kit Daniels, which stated, in part, “The Clinton Campaign worried about Hillary’s lack of ’emotional connection’ to everyday Americans. Democratic strategist  Steve Hildebrand told Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta that Hillary  must “find an emotional connection to regular Americans…Hillary has got to get away from Washington speak and begin immediately to find an emotional connection to regular  Americans. She needs to have a greater understanding of what people and families are going through every day…”

Now come on folks, in all honesty, does anyone really think Hillary gives a tinker’s damn about what ordinary Americans go through every day. Her previous commentary about most of us being deplorables and irredeemables  shows or should show, what she thinks of us. All we are is a bunch of “racist” rednecks to be used, if possible, to further her goal of reaching the White House so our real un-elected rulers can hand her their agenda to force on us. In other words, she’s the middleman, er, excuse me, the “middleperson” between the dictators and the serfs. And, of course, in that position, and before, she can pretty much do what she wants, as the laws that apply to us do not apply to her.

All these alleged sex allegations about Trump are nothing more than  diversion so ordinary folks will not pay too much attention to some of the damning material coming out with the Wikileaks exposures where she is giving speeches in Brazil telling the bankers there she is ready to do away with US borders and just let everyone come in. The fact that she will be destroying this country’s culture is one that has occurred to her just like it has occurred to Comrade Obama–and she couldn’t care less.

If this country is to be saved we will have to repent, turn to the Lord, and ask Him what we need to do–and the Church had better learn how to lead the way.

Goodbye Internet–Congress Still Yawning

by Al Benson Jr.

Several days ago I posted an article about how our beloved ruler, in his Marxist omniscience, was planning to give the Internet in this country to some other, outside governing body, which would then “regulate” (control its content) so that Americans would not have it to garner information from and we would be back to depending on the same old hackneyed Establishment “news” media for what we needed to know about how government was stiffing us.

Actually it probably wasn’t our beloved ruler personally that came up with this but rather the Establishment creatures that give him his marching orders and the agenda he is to follow if he wants to remain in office. These are the same people who will do the exact same thing for Hillary when she ascends to the throne in the White House.

The information I received about this gave the numbers of bills in both House and Senate that had been introduced to combat this, but it seems that, in both houses these bills we “in committee” which means that’s probably where they would die a natural death. Very few senators and house members co-sponsored these bills, which means we had (and have) a bad case of congressional apathy. Most of them really didn’t give a hoot, in fact some of them might have actually been happy to see this happen as it might mean, if some foreign body ends up “regulating” the Internet there might be less  negative info available about them to ordinary folks. And they wonder why the approval rate for Congress hovers around 6 percent!

Per the request I received about this I did contact my senators and representative urging them to sign up and co-sponsor the bills that would potentially keep the Internet in US hands and out of UN hands. The response I have received from my elected representatives has, shall we say, been rather underwhelming. I got one, rather tepid letter back from one senator that assured me he’d keep my views in mind on this subject. Nothing more. The other two didn’t bother. If other congress critters around the country have shown as much concern as the congress critters here in North Louisiana  I have to conclude that Congress, as a whole, couldn’t care less about the UN controlling the Internet instead of the US. That bothers me. Because if Congress is too lethargic  to care about the flow of information to US citizens free of UN control, then what else is there out there that concerns us that they just don’t care about?

Actually, I was a bit surprised. Usually my representative and senators are pretty good on the issues I write to them about and I do write to them about what bothers me. I have contacted them so often about Second Amendment issues I am surprised they don’t know me by the first name. They know when some gun control issue comes up they will get a communication from me letting them know what I think they should do. But on this issue, they seem mostly dead in the water–and I wonder why.

What’s going on that everyone shies away from dealing with our handing control of the Internet over to the UN or some other equally reprehensible foreign body? What’s the deal here?

Today is the last supposedly “free” day for the Internet and it’s not that our Congress is apathetic–it’s just that they don’t seem to care very much. I just contacted the one senator that bothered to write me and told him his letter was rather tepid and didn’t really tell me much. It looked like the kind of letter some ribbon clerk up on the 6th floor in an un-air conditioned office wrote and not what I usually get from this man.

I am beginning to wonder if Congress has been told to back off on this issue and just let it happen–all in the “national interest” of course. Figured I’d better post this today while I still had the chance as I don’t know how welcome it will be tomorrow or thereafter.

Trump says he wants to make America great again. If the current Marxist administration has its way it’s not going to leave him very much to work with!
