The Theology Of “Woke”

by Al Benson Jr.

According to a lady interviewed on Fox News recently, many parents are beginning to get fed up with “woke” indoctrination being perpetrated on their children. One place this occurs is in public schools across the country. One way to combat this satanic (and it is satanic) indoctrination is to get your kids out of public schools. While you may not get rid of all of it that way, as you will get some of it on television and in the movies, you will get rid of a large portion of it by getting the kids out of public school.

We have got to get out of our minds the concept that public schools are still institutions of learning. If ever they were, a premise that is doubtful, that time is long since gone by and it will never return. Way too much water under the bridge for that to happen. The public school system is a major indoctrination center for the New World Order and the United Nations–both of which America would be much better off without!

So, what does “woke” really mean? Dictionaries are already defining it as “socially aware of injustice.” Its “revealed truth” is that those who refuse to go along with it are sinners. Daring to question its revealed tenets is a heresy, and those that won’t convert to it must be destroyed. Sounds a lot like the Muslim religion–convert or die! In other words, wokeism is yet one more leftist theological construct. As such it constitutes a false political religion. I got much of my insight for this from an article on the Gateway Pundit website by Patty McMurray posted on 1/31/23.

Woke is a collectivist ideology. Collectivist thinking must replace individual thinking. It herds people into “broad classes based on defined characteristics–race, sex, religion. In classic Marxism these groups are defined by economic status. Woke defines them by race and sorts them out by privilege. The color of your skin does indeed define your character–forever…collective thinking denies human’s basic dignity and treats them as mere numbers. Key: it also assigns collective guilt.”

Woke is authoritarian–and also Marxist. Woke defines the world as a mere power arena, where all are at war with all others. The name of the game is, basically, who will be “King of the hill?” Woke defines the dominant class as “white supremacy.” Everyone else is a victim of white supremacy! If something exists, it is ripe for destruction.

Woke is totalitarian. Everything is political. No one is allowed to be neutral. Everything is either an instrument of oppression or an instrument of struggle for the victims of oppression. Anything goes! “Like the Maoist Red Guards, the woke believers use their religion to empower themselves by pulling down anyone and anything that catches their attention. Students are allowed to destroy their teachers. Players to destroy their coaches. Colleges then pull down statues of their founders because some of those founders happened to be slaveowners in an era when that was not frowned on. Any of this sound familiar to you all? “Woke means an intolerant, revolutionary, collectivist ideology of power that’s at war with all society, and, yes, it’s explicitly racist.” Of course it parades itself as being vehemently anti-racist, which is absolute fertilizer. Woke is not anti-racist–it is antiwhite! Just one more fake, leftist religion!


Is Antifa An Arm Of The Democratic Establishment?

by Al Benson Jr.

One of the Fox News commentators recently made the statement that Antifa is an arm of the Democratic Establishment that is used to get rid of a sitting president. They were used against Trump in 2020. They are now being used against Biden in the riots in Atlanta. CNN aids those who benefit from Antifa’s violence. A top Democrat’s son was arrested in Boston at an Antifa event. It would seem that many Democrats actively promote violent terrorism.

Let’s get one thing straight here. Antifa is not, I repeat not, anti-fascist. They are fascists and are on the political left every bit as much as the Communists. They are exactly what they claim to be opposed to. That’s a favorite tactic of the left–claim to be opposed to what you actually are. You’d be surprised to how many people that fools. It’s past time to stop defending Antifa and declare them a terrorist organization. The children of many of the rich and privileged are turning into Antifa monsters, just like the kids of the rich turned into SDS monsters back in the 1970s. We should say here that Antifa is the real “white supremacy” threat

Now, Antifa is using the death of a black man in Memphis, who was beaten to death by five black policemen, as an excuse to justify race riots across the country. So how is the beating of a black man by five black cops an example of “white supremacy”? That’s a hard one to answer, but not to worry, the leftists are at work coming up with a convoluted response that probably won’t make much sense, but the “news” media will pick it up and run with it anyway. That’s what they’re paid to do.

Antifa has been using the shameful Memphis incident to justify violence. Their motto: “Burn it all down.” Antifa has been telling rioters to “bring rocks, pipes, Kerosene.” They would love to be able to do what they did in Portland in 2020, because everybody is supposed to be treated to the lesson that–no matter what happens or who did it, it’s always Whitey’s fault!

Cities around the country were preparing for riots. And leave it to “Rev.” Al Sharpton to blame “white racism” for five black cops beating a black man to death! No matter who does what to who, the race baiters always manage to twist the facts so it’s the white man’s fault. No surprise there. Communists have fanned the flames of racial strife in this country and around the world for decades. I’ve often wondered, if they were able to get rid of all us whites from off the face of the earth, who they would then blame for all their problems. Because their problems would not go away with us gone–so they’d have to end up locating another scapegoat.

Pence Gallops In To Save Biden

by Al Benson Jr.

There’s an old saying that, in politics, nothing happens by accident. It is all planned out by sleazy characters in smoke-filled back rooms. I think there’s a fair amount of truth in that.

We had just reached the point where Joe Biden was beginning to sweat over all the classified stuff he had cached in various places when an unlikely “savior” in the form of Mike Pence, charged into the room to take some of the heat off him. It now turns out that Mike Pence also had some classified documents turn up at his home. There was a photo of Pence’s home on Fox News and it is a mansion just like Biden’s house is. These folks who want to run our lives for us sure know how to live well!

When I saw the news item about documents being found at Pence’s home, my first thought was ‘How convenient for Joe Biden.” It’s interesting that Pence does not seem overly worried about being prosecuted for this. Has he been assured he need have no worries about that?

According to the “New York Post” Hunter Biden had access to classified documents. Here is a guy who consorts with prostitutes and uses crack, and yet he has access to classified documents! Yet, he was clearly out of control at the time! Hunter wrote about things he should not have known about. So the question arises–did Biden use those classified documents to enrich his family? The company, Burisma, paid Hunter Biden over $80,000 a month for not much of anything. Why? Hunter leveraged classified information from Dad to do business in Ukraine according to Miranda Devine, the author of “Laptop from Hell.”

It is also noteworthy that some big banks are making money off “rebuilding Ukraine.” You can make lots of money “the Ukrainian way” which is via corruption! Blackrock and J. P Morgan have cozied up to Zelensky. Decades ago General Smedley Butler said “War is a racket.” How right he was! You have to wonder who else besides Mike Pence will be brought in to give Biden a bit of a respite. Maybe by now the Deep State figures Biden has gotten the message about not running in 2024 and so they are giving him a breather. I’ve often wondered about Mike Pence. There were times when he seemed slightly less than enthusiastic about what Trump was trying to accomplish, at least to me. The Deep State goes lots deeper than just those obvious socialist Democrats most of us know about. It also has deep roots in the republican Party. Always remember, no matter what their party affiliation, the Deep Staters are working to do this country and our way of life in.

Subversive “Fraternities”

by Al Benson Jr.

I mentioned in a previous article the well-known Order of Skull and Bones that was introduced into Yale College in 1832. In our day people who have belonged to that group have run for the office of president of this country–notably George W. Bush and John Kerry.

Arthur R. Thompson, in his work “To the Victor go the Myths and Monuments” has noted in this regard that: “Members of the Order worked both sides of the Civil War. William Barry, who came through Skull and Bones in 1841, presided over the Mississippi secession convention as the leader of the state legislature and served in the provisional Confederate Congress until 1862, when he joined the army. Another member of the Order served as the chairman of the secession convention in Louisiana, John Perkins Jr.. He also served in the Confederate Senate. remember this as we discuss the fact the conspiracy worked both sides to promote a war.”

Mr. Thompson continued: “Part of a network of similar ‘fraternities’ was Skroll and Key, founded also at Yale in 1842. It, too, appeared to be a chapter of the Order, although that is not its reputation. Very famous people have come out of Skroll and Key, and they tend to be quite liberal in their politics. Another was Wolf’s Head founded in 1883. Each was established out of the controversy of the earlier secret societies. As one fell into disrepute, another society was formed…The establishment of these newer secret societies matched the tactic, a variation, of forming new organizations out of the old to mask the fact that the old still existed–at least the leadership of the exposed organization. These campus secret fraternities were very useful in fulfilling an important tactic promoted by the Illuminati. This tactic is not only to enlist the brightest students but to target the progeny of their enemies, making their sons into minions. In this way, the younger can coast on the reputation of the elder among the Illuminst opposition, subverting much of the father’s organization and effectiveness as trusted friends. In addition, they capture the financial base of their enemy upon his death by having enlisted his heir into their cause.” Does this not sound a bit devious to anyone? It surely does to me, and it explains why the sons and daughters of conservative parents go to college and come back home as dedicated little socialists. I’ve seen this at work on college campuses so I know this is what goes on–and the horrible part is that it works!

Mr. Thompson cites an example here: “An example of this would have been Timothy Dwight V. The older Dwight was a fighter against the Illuminati and its influences. The younger Dwight became a member of the Order, studied in Germany under the Hegelians, and later served on the American committee for the revision of the English version of the Bible from 1878 to 1885. He became the President of Yale in 1886.”

I remember, years ago now, I talked to a mother who had sent her daughter to a particular liberal college. She said the daughter came home “a whole different person” and Mom was not at all sure she agreed with this “whole different person’s” new political outlook. I told the mother if she wanted to preserve the daughter she had sent off to college she needed to get her out of the college she was in and find something else for her more conservative. I don’t know what she ever did. Another family I know, good folks, homeschooled their son and then sent him off to college. Same story! He came back a different person and when the parents confronted the college president he told them “We want to challenge our students’ thinking.” In other words we want to undo what they were taught at home. This seems to be what colleges do best anymore. Only don’t call it education. Call it what is is–indoctrination–only now it is showing up more openly in schools from K through 12. It has always been there, but it seems the educrats today feel they can more openly flaunt it with impunity.

Face it–subversive forces have captured our educational systems in this country and we had better wake up to that fact so we can learn how to circumvent its effects. Solid Christian schools and homeschooling are ways to do that, but then you need to find colleges that have not yet been tainted with this intentional subversion and that ain’t always easy.

Capturing Higher Education

by Al Benson Jr.

We know that anti-Christ conspiracies captured higher education in this country early on. The Unitarians captured Harvard in 1805. That’s a mere 18 years after the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. And you know they have to have been at work long before that.

Arthur R. Thompson, in his informative work To the Victor go the Myths and Monuments has observed that: “After Illuminists infiltrated our systems of higher learning, such as Harvard and Yale, they started to recruit into their schemes the young, bright students that they instructed. On the Yale campus, for instance, Skull and Bones was established, also known as the Order, it was founded in 1832 primarily by General William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft as chapter 322 of a German secret society, although others were involved…Speculation is that the Order was the Illuminati, but no absolute proof has been found that it was. It certainly became an archetype of the Illuminati. Since Russell studied at the University of Berlin, and Skull and Bones became known as the Brotherhood of Death, it is likely that it was out of the Totenbund, itself a descendant of the Illuminati. It was Russell who brought the Order to Yale and partnered with Taft to get it started. A telling clue of their origin, even though circumstantial, is the use of the term ‘the Order’ just as the Illuminati was known. The best study of the Order is America’s Secret Establishment by Antony Sutton, former professor at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution. It details many areas of financial and establishment educational institutions run by members of the Order…”

Mr. Thompson also noted: “Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was an important precursor to Marxism and had been directly influenced by Illuminati, if not one of them…Russell became steeped in the philosophy of Hegel and remained interested in the Hegelian Dialectic all of his life. Over the years, the control of Yale after 1862 by members of Skull and Bones has been remarkable. Members of the Order encouraged the formation of secret societies on other campuses as they gained influence. “

As stated by Mr. Thompson, “Russell brought Skull and Bones to Yale University from Germany, where he had been in 1831-32. ..He founded the Collegiate and Commercial Institute in New Haven. At this institution he trained the students in military drill in anticipation of a civil war, many years prior to the war. In this, he was an American reflection of the German Turner units…The idea of a civil war was on the minds of the communist leadership within the Turners, and they prepared for it just as they had prepared in advance for the communist revolution of 1848 in Europe. Russell grew close to John Brown and was involved in supporting his efforts in the Kansas conflict in the 1850s. He is rarely mentioned in this regard, and most of the focus on who backed Brown’s efforts is on the so-called Secret Six. Yet it was Russell who became one of the trustees of Brown’s will. Many of Russell’s students became drill masters at the beginning of the war. He was made a general in the Connecticut National Guard from 1862 to 1870 by the Legislature.”

It sounds, from all this, like there were many in the North preparing for some sort of conflict long before the South seceded. More about the Illuminist infiltration of higher education in this country as the Lord permits.

Abraham Lincoln The Rosicrucian???

by Al Benson Jr.

As far as what they believe, the Rosicrucians seem to be a real mixed bag. One internet sit says “Rosicrucianism contains elements of Christianity, Hermeticism, Mysticism and Kaballah.” And it is claimed they are “a spiritual and cultural movement that arose in Europe in the early 17th century after the publication of several texts purported to announce the existence of a hitherto unknown esoteric order to the world…”

I make note of this because the Rosicrucians are mentioned in Arthur R. Thompson’s authoritative work To the Victor go the Myths and Monuments. Mr. Thompson observes, on page 13, that “The Illuminati influence spread too rapidly to have been an organization that was founded in a vacuum. There had to have been other networks that helped drive the work of the Illuminati. These obviously were of the aforementioned Enlightenment, but had to have a more central source of direction. Some claim it was the Rosicrucians, yet modern Rosicrucians claim they sprang out of the Illuminati. And, it is claimed that Weishaupt was a Rosicrucian. In addition it becomes confusing because the Rosicrucians were the first secret organization to combat the Illuminati. Since the Illuminati had a superior organization, in the long run they may have infiltrated the Rosicrucians. Rosicrucian writings do refer to the illuminati in their degrees, that a Rosicrucian could attain a certain degree that is referred to as ‘Illuminati.’…Of all secret societies the Rosicrucians have been the most elusive to pin down.”

Mr. Thompson noted that: “There is much about them that is deliberately fabricated to throw people off the track. One does not know if their claim on Lincoln’s membership is true, for instance. He is claimed, as well as Jefferson, Franklin, Giuseppe Mazzini and Albert Pike,..The head of the Rosicrucians in his writings in the early 20th century claims that Lincoln was chosen by the Supreme Council as the ‘annointed one’ to carry further the work of what they called ‘freedom.’ They further claim that earlier there existed a Council of Three, composed of Benjamin Franklin, George Clymer, and Thomas Paine, then Paine was replaced by Lafayette. Franklin and Lafayette both belonged to the Humanidad Lodge, which allegedly was a Rosicrucian entity. It is rare that anyone refutes these two facts: their membership and that it was a Rosicrucian entity…According to the Rosicrucians, the Council of Three was revitalized in 1842 by George Lippard. It is said by the Rosicrucians themselves that the council consisted of Dr. Paschal Beverly Randolph, Gen. Ethan Allen Hitchcock, and Lincoln. This is a recurring ‘fact’ in most Rosicrucian published sources…In all of Randolph’s biographies it is stated that he became such a good friend of Lincoln’s that he was on board the train taking the corpse of Lincoln from Washington, D.C. to Springfield, Illinois but was asked to detrain because some of the other personages objected to a man of color being aboard. Randolph was of mixed blood….What is known is that the world headquarters of the Rosicrucians was moved to America in 1848 and they stood for a parliament of the world. They are only one of many key conspiratorial organizations that moved their headquarters to America just before or after the Civil War.”

Interesting that they moved here in 1848. That was an eventful year, what with the communist/socialist revolts in Europe going on and also, here, the beginning of the women’s lib movement occurred in Seneca Falls, New York–an event that was rife with spiritualism. 1848 was not a good year for this country. We were subjected to influences that would eventually change this country–and not for the better.

Mr. Thompson also informed us that: “Of the above list of Rosicrucians, what is known is that Hitchcock was a Swedenborgian and the author of Swedenborgian books, including Christ the Spirit in which he attempted to show that Scriptures were symbolic books written by members of a Jewish secret society. He was a warm personal friend of Lincoln as well as a military advisor. He appears to have been a Rosicrucian, since he is listed as such by every leader of that society in every book written about the Order.”

So it would seem that there were connections between the Rosicrucians and the Illuminati and you had some “interesting” personalities that were Rosicrucians and some rather odd theology came from some of them. Theology that was not good for the country. Whether Lincoln was part of it or not, is hard to say, though the Rosicrucians claim he was. Given Lincoln’s anti-Christian bias and his interest in spiritualism, this all sort of fits our view of the “Great Emancipator.” We’ve been fed 150 years worth of lies about Lincoln that were created to build for us a legendary Lincoln that never really existed except in the minds of those forging the legends. Maybe someday our “history” books will get it right–but don’t hold your breath waiting!

Be Careful Of Those Encyclopedias

by Al Benson Jr.

Back when we lived in Illinois, I had a friend that was the librarian in a Christian school. From time to time he made excursions to book sales and other places where they were getting rid of all their old books and he bought up lots of stuff for the church school library, including lots of old encyclopedias. His contention was that these older books had lots of historical information in them that had been expunged from newer books and encyclopedias. I agree with him.

I looked through some of the old encyclopedias he bought when I first started doing research on the socialists and communists that had supported Lincoln when he was president. The encyclopedias from around 1895-1905 had lots of information on those men that had been seriously downplayed in more up-to-date encyclopedias. So I had to conclude that, for my purposes, older was better. That’s not to say the older material was perfect, but it contained more I could work with than newer versions did.

What has this to do with what I’ve been writing about of late regarding the Illuminati? Let me explain. The late William Norman Grigg, in his book Freedom On The Altar noted, on page 11 that: “At the time of the Illuminati’s founding, its doctrines had been well established by anti-Christian intellectuals such as Rosseau, Diderot, Voltaire….and others who are known collectively as illumines, philosophes, and encyclopedists.”

Regarding these encyclopedists researcher Arthur R. Thompson has observed in his book To the Victor go the Myths and Monuments that “The writings of such groups as the Encyclopedists were banned by the Royal French government, not because they threatened the royal house but because they were a deception and devise aimed at Christianity and the social order of the day to replace them with something else. That something else was to be a new social order run by a few who had an ambition to rule the people, more than it was to get rid of the existing rulers. While the average student believes that encyclopedias in general are short, noteworthy references, they are also a method of channeling the thinking of the student by the authors across a broad spectrum of information. Good teachers in the past discouraged students to use them as references, asking that they go to better sources for information for essays and papers. Just as the group around Voltaire used this means to sway people, so did the Americans George Ripley and Charles A. Dana with their New American Cyclopedia. These two men were leaders in the communist movement in its early years and editors of notable newspapers. Karl Marx contributed extensively to its content, and Adam Gurowski, the Carbonari radical, served on its editorial staff. This work evolved into the American Cyclopedia in 1873. ”

Mr. Thompson noted that the use of encyclopedias seems to be phasing out due to the internet. How many of you have checked out Wikipedia for something on the internet? I have at times when I wanted some generic information about some person or subject, but when it comes to specific information about some person or group, especially about political connections, often Wikipedia is still in the starting gate–or maybe it hopes some of its readers still are, and that they never get out.

If anti-Christian radicals used encyclopedias to promote their agenda in the 1700 and 1800s do you honestly think they don’t do the same thing today on the internet? Why wouldn’t they? For those that do use encyclopedias, it might be a good exercise to check out who the contributors to those encyclopedias are and then check out their backgrounds where possible to see where they are coming from.

Mr. Thompson wrote: “You cannot draw a line of separation between the Illuminati and the personages involved such as the Encyclopedists, Voltaire, and Mirabeau. Their work, activities, and allies overlapped to a great extent.” A little something for us to think about as we go to look things up–either in an encyclopedia or on the internet. Let us be discerning.

The Love Affair Between Radical Socialists And Elites

by Al Benson jr

What I talk about in this short article is not something that is a mew development. It goes back to the days of the French Revolution at least. In his book Freedom On The Alter the late Will Grigg observed: “Louis Blanc’s 1848 revolution in France, Frederick Bastiat…one of the most eloquent defenders of the free market, noted that there apprared to be a natural affinity between the socialist radicals and the governing elite…Furthermore, the supposedly anti-socialist policies implemented by the French government had the effect of enriching the socialist cause. the government, wrote Bastiat, was busy ‘concocting the antidote and the poison in the same laboratory.'”

This sounds like the identical situation we have today. Our governing elite tell us they are curing inflation, securing the border, doing all manner of activities they tell us will help the country when actually everything they do is dragging the country down and we are supposed to be too stupid to figure that out .At least they hope we are. They may well be banking on our public school “educations” having rendered us incapable of serious reflection. And while that has worked on lots of us, it hasn’t on lots of us too.

You can see the affinity between the socialists and the elites by the way the elites deal with socialist destruction. Antifa and Black Lives Matter loot and burn down our cities while the elites barely bat an eye, or at most, they call for more gun control, which they know will not solve the problem, but it gives them the appearance of “doing something” when they really have no plan to. They claim our Southern border is secure, there’s no problem there they tell us. Why? Because they really want all these illegal immigrants here so they can bus and fly them all over the country and deposit them in states where they want to change the vote. They plan to give the illegals the vote, whether they are citizens or not makes no differene to the elites. They figure most of these illegals will vote Democrat and keep them in power forever.

Can you imagine the vocal eruption that would emerge if conservatives tried to do what the elites are doing? Why it would be a major news story amongst the prostitute press, but because the socialist elites are doing it, the “news’ media yawns and goes back to sleep. Nothing to see here folks, just move along. We’re stealing your country, but don’t be concerned. We’ll teach you how to be happy with nothing and you’ll learn to love it–or else!

The only difference between the radical socialists in the streets with Molotov cocktails’ and the socialists sitting in board rooms or in presidential offices is that they differ in method as to how to take this country down, but both have the same desire to do just that. We need to wake up to that fact and seek the Lords guidance as to what to do about it.

What Was (Is) The Illuminati?

by Al Benson Jr

I’ve mentioned the Illuminati and Illuminism in several recent articles so it occurred to me I should let folks who may not know see what those people believed and their spiritual progeny still believe to this day.

William Norman Grigg, in his book Freedom On The Alter told us that: “Librarian of Congress James H. Billington, who has written: ‘The story of the 18th and 19th century secret societies can never be fully reconstructed, but it has been badly neglected–even avoided, one suspects–because the evidence that is available leads us into territory equally uncongenial to modern historians in the East and in the West.’ Billington has documented that is is from ‘romantic occultism in general, and Bavarian Illuminism in particular’ that ‘the modern revolutionary tradition as it came to be internationalized under Napoleon and the ‘Restoration’ descends.”

He noted Adam Weishaupt as the original founder, and said: “The Illuminati’s platform called for–among other things–the abolition of private property, patriotism, the family, and religion.” And he noted one commentator’s viewpoint regarding the Illuminati. The commentator observed: “The teachings of the Illuminati hold that all is material, that all religions are of human invention, that God is man, and man is God, and the world is his (that is man’s) kingdom.” “Thus man’s perfection would be supervised by other men–‘the illuminated ones’ who are supposedly destined to preside over human evolution.’ At the time of the Illuminati’s founding its doctrines had been well established and expounded by anti-Christian intellectuals such as Rousseau, Diderot, Voltaire, d’Alembert, and others who are known collectively in history as illumines, philosophes, and encyclopedists. Although they were given to quarrels among themselves…this group of elitists shared a common goal–the destruction of Christian society and the creation of a new society under the direction of the enlightened–that is illuminated–despots.” I don’t know about others, but this sounds like a future I’d not want any part of.

If you want a good idea of how man, with his fallen sin nature is sovereign, just take a look at how “illuminated” men are running Washington while the Democrats are in control and this will give you some idea of how life under the control of the Illuminati would be. We’ve got a sneak preview right here in our own country. If I asked the majority of those on my mailing list “How’s that working out for you?” I’d get a resounding reply of “It ain’t” from them!

Mr. Grigg also observed that: “First, the effort to subvert Christian society was directed from above, by the elite; it was not a spontaneous uprising from the struggling proletarian masses below. Second, Weishaupt’s conspiracy included many who were genuinely unaware of the movement’s ultimate objectives, people who had joined for social reasons or perhaps out of a misplaced idealism. Although the Bavarian Illuminati organized by Weishaupt was outlawed in 1784, it survived in the form of ‘reading societies’ and other front groups.” In other words it didn’t really die. It just went underground and changed its name. I’ve read somewhere where it split into three different groups, one of which was the League of the Just–the people that hired Karl Marx to write the Communist Manifesto. Another ploy that has survived down into our age is the tactic of the communists of using non-communist hands to do much of their dirty work by involving them in organizations with beneficial-sounding names but which, in reality, were formed to promote some aspect of the communist agenda.

Grigg has told us that the Illuminati, with its anti-Christian agenda, was ultimately responsible for the French Revolution. If the League of the Just hired Marx to write “his” manifesto and to get it published in 1847, just ahead of the 1848 socialist/communist revolts in Europe, that means some form of the Illuminati was active then. And, if then, why not in 1861 in this country? But then, that’s a rhetorical question, because lots of you already know the answer to it. Illuminist thinking was prevalent in this country in the 1800s and, if the truth be known, it still is today. Oh, the original Illuminati may be gone, dissolved into a whole batch of front groups, but due to those front groups, even today, the mindset of the Illuminati is alive, well, and surviving in some form. Maybe we should just call it the Conspiracy of anti-Christ because that’s ultimately what it really is. And for that reason, if for no other, Christians should be willing to expose it for what it is. Read Ephesians 5:11.

Fooling The Christians And Conservatives

by Al Benson Jr.

Lots of our congress critters have learned how to keep getting re-elected. Just fool their constituencies into believing they are something they really are not. And it must work because many of them get continually voted back into office by doing it.

I will give one example I have noted here in past years. A senator from one of our western states was returned to the Senate many times because he always voted against any new gun control bills that came up. On every other issue the guy was a raving socialist. I don’t bother calling them liberals anymore because a liberal is only a slow socialist who hasn’t made it all the way to socialism yet, but he’s working on it.

At any rate, this man knew that if he just voted right on gun control then he could vote left on any other issue and the folks back home would never know the difference because almost no one back there even looked at those other issues. Anyone who bothered to check out voting records would have known in five minutes or less that this man was a socialist pretending to be conservative. Unfortunately this man was far from the only phony to pull this scam on the folks back home.

Researcher Arthur R. Thompson has noted and written about the same thing. Mr. Thompson wrote in To the Victor go the Myths and Monuments that: “Another problem Americans have is that they cannot see through men who profess to be Christians selling them something that is anti-Christ. All throughout the history of America, including the present day, men will stand and profess Christianity and in the next instant promote some aspect of international socialism. It is usually subtle, a small step, but ultimately leads to the New World Order, the professed goal of international socialism. A modern example was a prominent governor who courted the pro-life movement at the same time he engaged in activities that would have led to the merger of North America into one nation, which would destroy the Constitution and independence of the American people. Likewise, he was known to have attended a Bilderberg meeting of internationalists who want more U.S. involvement and entanglements leading to a total subjugation of America to the United Nations…So a politician can make it appear that he is conservative to gain support, especially a social conservative, and still promote the New World Order, which in the long run would negate everything he professes to be for or against–and too many do this with intent.”

I recall yet another case right here in Louisiana where a man was running for the senate and making wide professions as to his Christianity. Someone who knew him once asked him “When did you become so religious?” To which he is said to have replied “When I needed the votes.”

Unfortunately, in our day, one of the main things missing from the “whole armor of God” for most Christians is discernment in political issues. Something we critically need to be able to do is to begin to check the voting records of those running for offices, especially at the national level. The New American magazine publishes, I can’t recall if its only twice a year or more often, in their excellent magazine, something called “The Conservative Index” which lists ten critical issues that both House and Senate have had to vote on recently and it tells you how all senators and representatives voted on all those ten issues and it grades them all on how they voted. Those with the highest scores are the most conservative while those with scores hovering in continuous low numbers are basically socialists. This is one thing I always check out when it appears because I want to know how all our legislators from Louisiana voted, but I check out other states also.

The important thing about this is that it gives you at a glance some idea of where all the elected representatives for the whole country are at. Something we need to be aware of if we are to cast an intelligent vote. This is the kind of information the socialist Democrats and some socialist Republicans would like to see ignored as it shows them up for what they really are and they’d just as soon you didn’t know that. For those who can afford it the New American is $49 per year and a good investment to keep you up to snuff on what goes on in this country.
