So What Does Civil War Look Like in America In the 21st Century?

Actually, civil war in this country has a lot of manifestations, some of which we are seeing right now.

Some say it will be a struggle between “progressives” (those on the Left and their Deep State financiers), some currently in government and the folks we refer to as patriots, of which there are many stripes, (many of which, unfortunately, refuse to get along  with one another). There are more patriots than progressives, but many patriots have yet to come to grips with the fact that, in several forms, the civil war has already begun. By the time some of the patriots decide to pick up their guns and fight, the real struggle may well be beyond them and their ability to make a difference. Unfortunately, they could have earlier made a difference had they been willing to pick up their Bibles and then their pens (which are still mightier than the sword if rightly used). Cultural conflicts are not always won with firearms, though that is a last resort.

Back before the War of Northern Aggression the North had been waging a cultural war against the South for decades. Mostly the South ignored it, paid little  attention to those Northern people (and those who backed them) as they horrendously slandered the South and its people. Many Southerners did not feel it was “gentlemanly” to reply to gross Northern slander. Good folks they were–but they were wrong. If the Lord is the source  of all truth, which He is, then you need to defend that truth wherever you have it!

Some say the civil war will commence when rational discussion can no longer be had. Sad to say, we are long past that point. All you have to do is look at Black Lives Matter, Antifa, or the NAACP to realize rational discussion is out the window. Those  people are there to destroy your culture and history and they don’t give a flip about “rational discussion.” That’s not on their agenda. Never will be!

You have to admit that, in a sense, a state of civil war exists between Trump and his supporters and those who supported St. Hillary in the last election. Hillary, Soros, Obama, and the rest of the Deep State apparatus have never gotten over Hillary’s stinging defeat in that election and the proof that  a variation of civil war exists is the  fact that they are all actively working to overthrow the results of the last election constantly.  The Deep State has never stopped trying to destroy Trump (and by extension those who support him) since he took office. They have been trying, illegally, immorally, or any way they could, to unseat him constantly–and they actually think we “deplorables” are too stupid to notice. They are not only at war with Trump–they are at war with US! Trump is trying to run the government as best he can and the Left (composed of many congress critters who are Republicans as well as Democratic socialists) is trying to wrest control from him and his administration and I think they’d actually hand it over to Hillary if they thought they  could do it, against the will of the American electorate. Maybe that’s why they want our guns so badly right about  now. When two opposing groups contend for control of the  same government that’s a definition of civil war!!!

Mueller’s witch hunt is a main campaign in the Left’s civil war against America and her people. We are already at war (a spiritual war first and foremost) and it  would be helpful if the Christians and patriots could, in larger numbers, begin to realize that the war is already upon us, both culturally and in the streets, as well as in the vaunted halls of congress.

A good place to make a beginning is to get on the internet and read None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen. Although written back in 1972, it will give you valuable insight as to where we are in our day and why.

America’s Second “Civil War”–Part Two

 

By Al Benson Jr.

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.

America’s Second “Civil War” will really be our first!

There has been lots of stuff on the internet, both  videos and articles, lately about what they are calling “America’s Second Civil War.” Actually, that title  is based on a false assumption. The war that was fought from 1861-65 was not a civil war. It was a war of Northern aggression to prevent Southern independence, because Southern independence would have meant no more tariff money from the South for Lincoln and his friends to finance their pet projects in the North.

The North and South were not fighting over the same government. The South had no interest in capturing the Northern government—they just wanted out, but the North needed the tariff money and so they fought.  The slavery question we have all been taught to believe was the North’s  Holy Grail was, at best, peripheral.

So if we have “another” civil war, it will be our first one and it may well happen in some form because there are people and groups that want it to happen—people and groups that you can’t sit down and talk rationally with, because they have a vision for a “new Amerika” as part of a “New World Order” and they are not about to compromise on that. The fact that most Americans don’t want that matters not at all to them. They want it and that’s what’s important to them. In their minds all we get to do is pay for it.

In an article by Pat Buchanan that was on www.wnd.com back in August of 2017 Buchanan noted that this country has changed since 1965. Before that, statues of our Southern heroes were venerated and honored, as were our flags. Buchanan said: “What his changed is America herself. She is not the same country. We have passed through a great social, cultural and moral revolution that has left us irretrievably divided on separate shores..” And he noted that, today, the names of Robert E. Lee and other Confederate heroes evoke “raw hatred and howls of ‘racist and traitor’.” In part,  our “institutions of higher learning” and the prostitute press are responsible for this—and they do it for a price.

Later on in his article, Buchanan notes President Trump’s question about this—“Where  does this all end?” And then he makes a chilling statement. He says “It doesn’t. Not until America’s histories and biographies are burned and new  texts written to Nazify Lee, Jackson, Davis and all the rest, will a newly indoctrinated generation of Americans accede to this demand to tear down and destroy what their fathers cherished.” As long as we continue to feed our next generation into these public education brain laundries, whether at the high school or college level, we are contributing to that destruction-and quite frankly, too many are too lazy to give a damn!

And Buchanan observes that, once the Left gets  through trashing the Confederates, they will push forward with the same agenda for whoever else is on their hit list. If you are naïve enough to think that “because I’m not a Confederate they won’t bother me” you had better learn to disabuse yourself of that fantasy right quick! If you are white, Christian, conservative, or patriotic you can bet the  farm you are on their list. You might not be as far up as the Confederates but you are there somewhere and when they get through destroying the cultures and heritage of those above you on the Leftist hit list, they will come for you!

In a column on www.dennisprager.com for January 24, 2017 it was stated: “This Second Civil War, fortunately, differs in another critically important way. It has  thus far been largely nonviolent. But given increasing left-wing violence, such as riots, the taking over of college presidents’ offices and the illegal occupation of state capitols, nonviolence  is not guaranteed to be a permanent characteristic of the Second Civil War. The same article later states: “Unity was possible between the right and the liberals, but not between the right and the left.” There are reasons for that. The article continues: “Just as in Western Europe, the left in America seeks to erase America’s Judeo-Christian foundations…Without any important value held in common, how can there be unity between left and non-left? Obviously there cannot. There will be unity only when the left vanquishes the right or the right vanquishes the left…” In other words, if you think you can make common cause with the Left and preserve a little of  what you still have—you are whistling Yankee Doodle!

The cultural Marxists, the political and theological Left, the Deep State (they are all kissin’ cousins) have as their plan your destruction and the destruction of your family and your faith and your history. Their “second Civil War” will be a war of extermination, in every understanding of that word! Do you get that yet???

One of the main questions here is—Who finances the Left?  They don’t do all that they do to work for your destruction for nothing. Someone has to pay for all this, and what do they expect to get out it all? I know it’s a rough go, but maybe you better start thinking and praying about all this and what you can do about it. Doing nothing gets you nothing but the destruction of your history, heritage and progeny.

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.

The “Spontaneous” Anti-Gun Movement

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Anyone who has followed the outbreak of “spontaneous” popular movements in the past four decades and done a little homework has to realize that such popular movements, all lack one basic ingredient–spontaneity. They didn’t just “happen” they were organized and planned and lots of people were used to set them  in motion all at once.

I recall the Kent State riots in 1970. At that particular point in time I was close to two college campuses, one of which I worked at. As the students poured out of both campuses to riot and cause mayhem in the streets, I remember, being there to see some of what went on, that this looked like the most well-orchestrated riot I had ever witnessed. Spontaneous it was not. Those students had been prepped for this, in  some cases by the professors, most of which leaned solidly to the Left. I actually saw one professor with a group of students, lecturing them about how to act and react once they hit the streets.

The little college I worked at had a ton of Leftist propaganda on hand for the students to pass out, some of it printed in North Viet Nam. I know because I took a box full of it home and read through much of it. With the Viet Nam War going on at that time, this was actually a not-so-subtle enemy invasion of our college campuses. I  wondered, if there was all that much enemy propaganda at this little school I worked at, how much of this stuff got shipped to Columbia University?  And who paid for all  this stuff to be shipped in to  these schools?

And now, fast forward to today. We have had a whole series of shootings at schools, all in “gun free zones” and the cry for gun control after each one has continued to escalate. This latest one in Parkland, Florida is a classic case in point. Let me say at this point that I consider most of these events to have been false flag events–something done by some group to create a public response so a  planned agenda can then be forced on the American people–a classic “pressure from above and pressure from below” situation, so  that this situation can be used to fuel a strong anti-Second Amendment fever amongst the public.

Arthur Thompson, CEO of the John Birch Society, has made some interesting comments in regard to this latest Florida situation and to such events in general. He said: “Let us use a little logic in this regard. Someone has to decide the who, what, when, where, and why of any event, movement, etc. Someone, or some group, has to put it all together so that seemingly diverse organizations all come together  at the same time, whether physically, such as a demonstration,  or where all are on the same page with their influence or propaganda.” He noted that social media plays a role in this. And then he noted a group of seemingly “diverse”groups that all  came together using the Parkland situation as their catalyst. He noted such groups and individuals as “Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, MoveOn.org, Planned Parenthood, the  Women’s March LA, Everytown for Gun
Safety,…and the socialist American Federation of Teachers (AFT) to name a few. (Nearly every head of the AFT has been a leader in the Socialist Party or its successors.) Kind of makes you wonder who’s running the public schools doesn’t it? But then, most of us already know the answer to that one–and it ain’t the parents or the local community!

Mr. Thompson found it difficult (and so do I) to believe that all those companies that had worked with the NRA now suddenly stopped, as though the shooting were, somehow the NRA’s fault. He said: “There had to be an effort to prod dozens of companies to make such a decision literally overnight. Particularly since the NRA had nothing to do with the shooting…” But demonizing the NRA makes all guns look bad to the public and that is a main part of the agenda.

And Mr. Thompson observed, again, quite accurately, that “…the Left exploited the Parkland shooting by blaming the gun and rallied immediately to coordinate a movement that has as its ultimate intent the disarming of every American citizen, starting with a few changes now to be followed up by more and more after each new act of terror.” So we are not nearly done with this Leftist  disarmament agenda. There will be more and you can bet the farm that good ol’ David Hogg(wash) will be out there with his Communist clenched fist salute as he and his Leftist buddies work  for the removal of your Second Amendment rights–and that’s what they are all about–make no mistake! You will recall how one of those Leftist girls at the first anti-gun march on March 14th of this year said in a speech–“You give us an inch and we will take a mile.” She told you right there what it’s really all about–gun confiscation! And those that deny that are, quite  plainly, LIARS!

Keep your eye on your congress critters in this election year because most of them will have their fingers up in the air testing which was the anti-gun sentiment is blowing and unless we keep their feet to the fire, they will slip the traces and sell us out! A word to the wise!

The Elder Sibling Is Watching You

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Around thirty years ago, a man who followed the political scene in this country told me that the Central Intelligence Agency owned or controlled the National Enquirer newspaper. Somehow, the thought didn’t surprise me. Now I can’t say if he was accurate  or not. At that time I had no way of checking that out. However, other things he told me did pan out  as he said. So let’s just leave it at that.

Recently, I watched a video of a speech by Jerome Corsi. Many of you probably know who Mr. Corsi is. He used to work for World Net Daily and he has written several books over the years. At present, he is a correspondent for http://www.infowars.com and he has a new book out called Killing the Deep State–the Fight to Save President Trump. Check it  out. Mr. Corsi is a good journalist and researcher.

Anyway, in this video I watched, Mr. Corsi mentioned Facebook, Twitter, Google, and one other entity (I’m not sure if it was Amazon or not) and he said that these had all been, in their origins, creatures of the CIA.  I think his speech was on You Tube, so if it hasn’t been removed by now you can probably find it with a little “huntin’ and peckin.” I usually agree with most of what  Mr. Corsi says because he is such a good researcher, with lots of good  sources.

I wouldn’t have thought all that much about his speech except, that on the same day I heard it, I chanced  to read an  article by Luis P. Almeida that had originally been on http://www.LewRockwell.com and had been picked up by https://flyoverpress.wordpress.com  I don’t know much about  Mr. Almeida, but parts of his article caught my attention after having listened to Mr. Corsi’s speech.

Mr. Almeida wrote: “…but I was aware of the privacy issue since Sun Microsystem’s Scott McNealy warned us about it way back in 1999. I have been aware for years that Facebook was  funded by the CIA’s venture capital arm called In-Q-Tel and that the NSA had tapped into our telecommunications network and was sucking up all voice and date traffic for analysis. In the 80s Brzezinski stated in his book, that soon the government would have a database containing everything there is to know about each and every one of us. I did not need a congressional hearing to make me aware that the day he spoke of had long arrived.” And incidentally,  the Brzezinski he is referring to, a longtime member of the Trilateral Commission, who passed away recently, was the father of Mika Brzezinski who is a “news” anchor for CNN.

So what Mr Almeida is telling  us is that Facebook is basically in the business of gathering any and  all info they can on all of us. When confronted with this their usual reply is that this is strictly for “commercial” purposes–advertising, etc. That’s a pile of cow chips, to use a polite term. These people are gathering intelligence on all Americans of all ages that use social media. They want to make sure they have the goods on any and all Americans who might, someday, become “persons of interest” to the feds. Whether this is warranted or not makes not an iota of  difference. They do it because they can!

And if you should be naive enough to ask about your First, Fourth, and Sixth Amendment rights I would have to reply–“Surely you jest!”
