The first civil war in America continues, and part of the attack plan of the treasonous Deep State that seeks to overthrow the legitimately elected government is the changing of history. Part of that is the changing of names-city names, street names, school names and any other names the Deep State feels are not reflective of their distinctive anti-Christ theology.

And so all of our history must be changed to reflect their anti-Christian bias (which of course they claim they don’t have) and all they despise must go. So what happens if they finally manage to get rid of all they loathe and they have no enemies to fight anymore? Will Nirvana or the Golden Age suddenly have arrived? Well, not hardly, because if they ever get to where they feel they have vanquished all their adversaries on the Right they will end up turning on each other over such issues as who is not far enough to the Left and they will destroy each other. That famous saying “The revolution eats its own” is not all that inaccurate. Just look at Stalin’s efforts in the Soviet Union, or, further back, the efforts of many in the French Revolution who doubted the “doctrinal purity” of some of their brethren. After we are all gone, some of their heads will be on the chopping block, or on the guillotine.

But for now, their war of cultural extermination goes on against those of us who inhabit Flyover Country–a region they thoroughly detest. And, for now, they have to have an issue to throw in the faces of the “great unwashed” that will exhibit their moral purity–and one issue they depend upon for that is the slavery issue.

So they parade forth in all their moral greatness, and in the form of Austin’s Equity Office, in Austin, Texas, where they have now decided, in their enlightened Illuminism, that the name of the city of Austin must be changed because Stephen Austin, the Father of Texas, once opposed an attempt by Mexico to ban slavery in the province of Texas. There are several other things they would like to change also because, whatever they are, they are all named after people who were slave owners. Everyone who understands the theology of the Left knows that, in their “bible” the ownership of slaves was the one unforgivable sin. Every other sin is forgivable except the one. The theology of the Left is okay with rape, murder, robbery, lying, cheating–all these are Leftist virtues–if done for causes that advance their agenda. They have no problem with slavery if Leftist governments do it, but private ownership of slaves is beyond the pale! Private ownership of anything is beyond the pale.

The Office of Equity in Austin, Texas realizes they will get some pushback, but they defended their proposals as a noble attempt to do away with “whitewashing history.” They realize public hearings will be needed to change street names and such, but “…a name change for the city would require an election in order to strike ‘Austin’ from the city’s charter and have it replaced with a new name.” Of course if they could get a bill passed in Texas to let illegal aliens and non-citizens vote, they just might bring it off. Texans need to watch out for such movements and strongly oppose them.

If they manage to get the name of Austin changed, who knows where they will go next. Could San Antonio become the new Santa Anna City or El Paso the new Engleside (for those who don’t know, Friedrich Engels was Karl Marx’s partner in crime.

For those who don’t grasp all the fine points of this argument, you need to realize one thing. A war, civil or otherwise, on your culture and heritage is a war against you and your children. Your children have a history, culture, and heritage and those who war against you and your country are trying to take that away from them! If you don’t get anything else from this article–please understand that!

Free Muslim Immigration into Europe–the Barcelona Declaration of 1995

by Al Benson Jr

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Maybe I am just dense, but until I got an email from a friend up in Missouri, I had never even heard of this, or if I did it was so long ago I had totally forgotten it. It just goes to show you that the Internationalists, the One World Government crowd, is always at work 24/7 to force their agenda on people who just want to be left alone. However, unpleasant as it is for us. we have got to wake up and realize that the One World Government crowd is never going to let us or anyone else alone.

They have a Luciferian agenda to remake the entire world over into the image of their deity.  The fact that Genesis 3 tells them this will never happen matters not at all to them as their apostles continue to “prowl about as roaring lions seeking whom they may devour.” And one way they seek to devour is through ethnic and cultural genocide.

I came across a site called http://balder.org/euromed-en and the article I found was titled: Free Muslim Immigration to Europe 2. It wasn’t long but it had to do with “secretive European Union-agreements with 10 European and North African countries” and it said “The Euro Mediterranean Declaration was agreed upon by the EU, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and Israel and comprises:  Comprehensive political partnership, among other things about:: establishing a free trade area and economic integration to begin in the year 2010,…Cultural partnership. The EU offers the populations of 9 Muslim Countries  free movement of goods, services, capital and people into the EU.”

The “Cultural Policy” in all this “must avoid the  popular distinction between ‘them’ and ‘us’…The Danish Foreign Ministry is educating us from our ‘stereotypes and prejudices’ towards Islamic culture.’ Naturally UNESCO is one of the groups involved in this propaganda campaign.

A brief comments about this turned up on http://www.abovetopsecret,com  that said “It seemingly explains the influx of Muslim immigrants into Europe, once again without mandate, it enforces multiculturalism in Europe…with financial reward to participating nations. There are many links on the subject, many citing it as a massive failure.”

Another one I came across is https://www.liveleak.com/  No date on this one but it has  posted two videos. I tried the first one and it was not available so I went to the second one and was able to pull it up. The title was The Barcelona Declaration/ Why Multiculturalism Has Failed in the EU. The man had somewhat of an accent, which doesn’t help with my hearing problem, but he gave a pretty fair explanation of much of what has happened in Europe.

My friend in Missouri gave a rather penetrating analysis of this and he connected some dots that many would not have noticed. I think he is right on the money! He said, in part, “The time of the Barcelona Declaration (1995) roughly corresponds with the beginning of the more widespread attacks on the Confederate Flag. At the time several of us were pointing out that the Flag attack was part of a larger plan that had to do with state and regional sovereignty. A resurgent South was just not part of the globalist plan. Little did I know that the Barcelona Dec was the blueprint for that plan. The Barcelona Declaration began implementation in 2010 of the beginning of  the ‘migrant’ crisis…It is similar to the ‘Open Borders’ policy promoted in the US. It started in Europe but is now in the US and the heart of the globalist plan.”

His insightful comments prove that the last place you go to for “news” is the news media because what they fail to tell you is usually  more important than the bovine fertilizer they spread in front of you as “breaking news.”

The BLM–Agenda 21’s Stooge In The West

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I have written about the United Nations Agenda 21 program in the past. It is the United Nations thinly veiled attempt at land-grabbing trying to hide under the very dubious cover of “sustainability.” Supposedly there are way too many people in the world (there aren’t) and the UN has to keep all the land “sustainable” by taking people off of it and herding them together in mega-ghettos and leaving untold millions of acres unpopulated and unused for guess who? The political commissars who thought all this up, that’s who. Private property and single family homes will be a thing of the past. You won’t need your cars because there will be no place to go when you are not allowed out of the city limits. Those of you who follow this sort of thing already know the drill.

However, in this country it seems there are lots of folks, most particularly in the West and the South, who put some value on private property, particularly if it has been in their  families for generations. And the Agenda 21 spooks need someone to be able to deal with that sticky situation. It seems, at least in the West, they have found their stooge of choice to help them divest people of their property–and no one is supposed to connect the dots between Agenda 21 and the Bureau of Land Management–an organization that has managed to make itself almost universally despised west of the Mississippi–and not without reason.

I recently read an article by Tim Brown, published on https://sonsoflibertymedia.com back on October 15, 2016. It quotes a Nevada assemblywoman, Michele Fiori, and she labels the Bureau of Land Management a “Domestic Terrorist Agency.” The article observes: “On Thursday morning, Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiori stood on the Nevada Assembly floor to point out several things regarding the Oregon occupation, the Bundy Ranch siege and the sheriffs who were involved in both. She also pointed out at the center of both of them was the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and she referred to them as one of several ‘Domestic Terrorist Agencies.’ I stand in support of and know that Blue Lives Matter…But there have been Sheriffs that hand their elected positions over to the Federal Government and some of the outcomes have been fatal. Sheriff David Ward of Harney County did just that. Under his watch a man, Lavoy Finicum, was murdered.” And she noted: “The Bureau of Land Management has become quite aggressive across our Nation,  from continual harassment of our indigenous Native Americans to our Ranchers, who are just trying to protect their livelihoods.” But the ranchers believe in  private property rights and that is becoming a no-no more and more.

Another article, this one by Michael Snyder on April 23, 2014 on https://freedomoutpost.com/agenda-21-blm-land-grabbing-endgame pretty succinctly lays it all out. Mr. Snyder says “Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more? Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing. It is commonly known as Agenda 21, although many names and labels are used for this particular philosophoy. Basically, those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of ‘sustainable development.’ In their vision of the future, the human population will be greatly reduced and human activity will be limited to strictly regulated urban areas and travel corridors. The rest of the planet will be left to nature. To achieve this goal, a massive transfer of land from private landowners to the federal government will be necessary.” What do you think this will do to our ranchers and farmers in the West, or even here in Louisiana where I live?

And Snyder adds “So the conflict between rancher Cliven Bundy and the BLM is really just the tip of the iceberg. The reality is that the BLM has their eyes on much bigger prizes.” There was the BLM’s attempted land grab along the Texas-Oklahoma border back a few years ago.

Snyder noted that  the feds claim to own 84% of the state. In Utah they claim 57% of the state and in Alaska they claim 69%, and 53% in Oregon, to mention a few.

The federal government flat out doesn’t need any more land. They’ve got way too much as it is. But there is this constant obsession to grab more and more–so the dictates and agenda of Agenda 21 can be fulfilled. In fact, let’s be honest–they want it all and ranchers, farmers, miners, or folks that just want a little retirement place down on the bayou or out in country will just have to go. End of conversation! And besides they will be dispensing with lots of people with independent ideas–and that just won’t float in a UN-dominated environment.

So just remember, when the BLM comes along to wrest your land from you, who they are really working for, and brother, no matter what they say, it ain’t you!

Email and/or internet censorship–perish the thought

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Back when Comrade Obama was still in office there was talk of internet censorship, but when he reluctantly departed (though he didn’t go very far–certainly not far enough) we all thought that might not occur.

Seems we may have been wrong.

I and others have taken note lately  that several messages we have sent out on our various email sites do not seem  to be getting through to many of those we send them to.

A couple months ago I did an article for this blog spot and in the subject line on my email server I had the word “secession.” One email server just would not send it, no matter how hard or often I tried. No matter what I did that link with “secession” on the subject line wasn’t going no place. Perceiving that I may have pricked the tender feelings of some poor soul in the forwarding process I changed the word secession to “separation” and resent the message. It went through  immediately.

I have since attempted to be a bit more temperate in what I put on the subject lines of emails going out of here. On one article I was going to put “Big Brother” on the subject line, but then reflected a bit and thought, no way will Big Brother make it past the censor, so I changed the subject line title and the article title to “The elder sibling is watching over you.” That went through. Im sure “Big Brother” would never have made it.

The mode of email censorship doesn’t seem to be universal. Yesterday I sent out an article someone had forwarded to me about a big Confederate flag being  put up somewhere in Alabama. I felt, in the face of all the ethnic cleansing we had experienced in the last couple of years, it was a positive article and an encouragement  to folks so I passed it on to many.

Today I got some response. One man in Texas said they must have shut the site down as he couldn’t get into it at all. A man in West Virginia said he could open the article but not get the picture of the flag, and a lady in Georgia said the same thing. It would appear that most other folks go it–at least so far.

Reminds me of a friend in North Carolina with a big email list who used to include a small pic of a Confederate flag at the bottom of the emails he sent out. One find day the emails started bouncing back as undeliverable. Now my friend is a person who has been known to connect the  dots as  it were, and so he tried sending the same messages out minus the Confederate flag at the  bottom. Guess what? All his messages started going through again! Seems the Confederate flag was a major impediment to email being forwarded. Wonder why that was. You don’t suppose there’s some grumpy old censor somewhere down the line that hates Confederate flags do you? Why perish the thought! Our emails are supposed to be private, are they not, and unless you put really horrible language or something like that in them I always thought they were to be left alone. Guess I  was wrong. It seems that the personal like and dislikes of the email censors are now what really counts. Political correctness seems to rule and if you have something some cultural Marxist doesn’t personally like in your email, guess what? It ain’t going anywhere or you will  end up getting that ever-useful comment “There was a problem loading the message.” Translation–Forget it! Unless you go to a different email server and even there the censors have their code words they watch out for.

Then we get these adds on email  sites about how concerned they are for our “privacy.” What they are really concerned about is that we don’t say anything that would be politically incorrect (not culturally Marxist).

Well, I’ve got this posted. Now lets see how well I do sending it out. I’m sure the mention of Confederate flags here will offend the sensibilities of some tender soul somewhere that will want to make sure this article gets no further than him–lest someone down the line be contaminated with a little truth!

Evangelicals and the Culture War

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Four years ago last January, in 2014, I did a four-part series titled Evangelical Marxism for this blog spot.  I don’t know if it woke anybody up but I hope it did reach some. If you care to check back, it is still up. I suppose I could call this part five, or maybe just the continually sleeping church, as it seems to take an awful lot anymore to wake the church up to much of anything. In many cases we seem to be sleeping our way through history and then we wonder why in heck we are losing the culture war.  Maybe if we just woke up and started to fight back we wouldn’t lose so often. The Lord ain’t about to bless the efforts of the comatose to remain asleep.

The New American magazine for June 5, 2018 had an informative article by Alex Newman,  https://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/faith-and-morals about some of what is going on in the Southern Baptist Convention, which is to have their annual meeting this year in Dallas, Texas between June 12th and 13th.

Mr. Newman wrote, in part, “The Southern Baptist Convention, America’s largest protestant denomination and a historically conservative wing of the Christian church in the United States is on the verge of falling to organized ‘progressive’ social-justice forces and anti-Trump activists, according to media reports and insiders involved in the battle. One leading opponent of the scheme has even blasted what he described as the ‘Evangelical Deep State’ working to infect the church with unbiblical ideologies. The goal of these forces, dubbed ‘neo-Marxist’ by some critics, include softening and eventually quashing Christian opposition to homosexuality , normalizing gender confusion in the church, promoting left-wing politics at all levels of government, fueling constant obsession and angst over race and gender, facilitating mass Islamic  immigration into the United States, and much more. Most rank and file Southern Baptists remain oblivious to what is happening, insiders said. But the implications for the church, the culture, the nation, and politics could be earth-shattering.”

That’s the main problem right there–most Southern Baptists remain oblivious to what really goes on in the denomination. And you can’t just point the finger at the Southern Baptists–the same situation holds true in many denominations.  Lots easier to just stay asleep and let the church leaders handle everything. The question of what to do if they don’t “handle everything” never comes up until it is too late.

There is a resolution scheduled to be introduced into this year’s annual Southern Baptist meeting by conservatives that will “…strongly condemn the ‘unbiblical’ and ‘Marxist-based’ so-called ‘social-justice’ movement. We’ll have to keep an eye out to see what happens to that resolution. The man who introduced the resolution suspects there may well be an effort to prevent its being voted on. The purpose of the resolution is to wake people up to what the Left is trying to do within their denomination. He said “Most of these churches in the heartland,  most of these are rural churches and most of them have no idea of what is going on.”

He said: “My fear is that if progressives get in control of the Southern Baptist Convention–(Summit Church Pastor) . J. D. Greear is one of their guys–the people in the heartland are going to start seeing this stuff infiltrating the literature, the bookstores, but by then it will be too late and these progressives will be running the show. At that point the response will be too little too late.” There’s a lot of meat in Mr. Newman’s article that I can’t include here for space reasons. Check it out on the internet and read the article in its entirety.

Another article I came across along this same line is one written by Rev. Thomas Littleton back in July of 2017 entitled How Evangelicals Lost the Culture War Before it Started. You can probably find this by typing the name of the article and the author. Just for kicks, try that on duckduckgo.com search engine. Lots of stuff on that one I haven’t seen other places, and supposedly they don’t track what you look up like Google and others do.

Rev. Littleton wrote: “Hundreds of millions of dollars are being spent to change the churchs’ biblical stand on LGBTQ. In 2014, the Human Rights Campagn (HRC) came to the deep south with $8.5 million to push Project One America with ‘A Christian Conversation Guide’ training manual  to organize and mobilize the LGBTQ community into the churches.  The Reformation Project and gay activist Matthew Vines have since made their way into many churches and onto Bible college campuses like Biola University. Just this week a LGBTQ won Faculty approval on Southern Baptist affiliated Samford University. Why is this happening? While the church is being manipulated and distracted, pre-K-12 schools are being invaded by the LGBTQ.” Some of you who know what goes on in public schools already realize that. Seems like your churches are now going to get it too.

Maybe the evangelicals need to begin to realize they are losing the culture war because the other side is the only one doing any real fighting! Most evangelicals (with some exceptions) are just sitting it out–hoping all this really nasty stuff will just go away if only they are “nice enough” to the anti-Christ types on their block. It won’t. And you all better realize that you are in a spiritual battle that you won’t win unless you start resisting the evil being thrust upon you.

Being Watched Over? Or Just Watched?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Another Golden Opportunity For Hogg(wash) In Texas?

 

By Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

 

Well, here we go  again. Yet another school shooting in another gun free zone. If you get the feeling that you have heard it all before, it’s because you have—on many occasions in the past few years. I have said before that the shootings will continue until the general public has gotten the “correct” attitude on the Second Amendment (total gun confiscation) because that is  what these shootings are really all about—a bloody prelude to grabbing the guns. And if hundreds of students have to be shot in the process, the gun grabbers couldn’t care less! It’s just the collateral damage necessary to achieve their agenda.

In this most recent case in Santa Fe, Texas the shooter is a 17-year old student that they have actually captured instead of killed. That doesn’t happen often. He is supposed  to have killed 10 people and wounded more than a dozen others. He was a student at the school he shot up.

According to https://www.zerohedge.com “CNN shared a screenshot of the shooter’s Facebook page before it was taken down. According to Cassandra Fairbanks, Dimitrios Pagourtzis was a ‘Columbiner’: he had the same button that Dylaln Klebold wore on his shoe during the columbine massacre.” I wasn’t exactly sure what a “Columbiner” was so I looked for a definition. I found one on www.urbandictionary.com that said: “Someone who has a profound interest in the April 20th Columbine High School massacre. They may also be obsessed with two of the victims that committed suicide, Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris…”

Whatever this kid was, he admired all the wrong  people. Zerohedge continued: “The Daily Caller reported that social media pages…reveal he was obsessed with guns, knives and animal torture. They also show that he owned a trench coat with USSR and Nazi symbols on it…His Facebook page also appeared  ‘to suggest an obsession with Satanism’.”

Supposedly the shooter wore a black trench coat and carried a sawed-off shotgun. Can you hear the new cries now for “shotgun control?” No AR15 for this kid—he did it the old-fashioned way—which will probably trigger a new call for ALL guns of any kind to be banned!

I wondered as I read about this—where will David Hogg(wash) fit into this situation? I’m sure they can find a spot for him somewhere. With the shooting  in Parkland, Florida Hogg(wash) had his “15 minutes of fame” well, maybe 14 & ½ minutes of it, and now he seems to  be on the downside of that. Maybe this new shooting in South Texas will give him another chance at yet another 15 minutes of fame; one more chance to excoriate us “old dumb (expletive deleted)” because we didn’t have the good sense to do what needed to be done  and left it to his generation to ‘’’save” the world. I expect more of that  sort of drivel from Comrade Hogg in this current situation. It’s my fervent hope that he will just stay seated and keep his trap shut, but I think he is too enamored of his leftist talking points to grace us with his silence!

And this current shooter, with the communist and fascist medals on his coat—well—would you believe the useful idiots on the left are quickly blaming the NRA for him! Somehow,  it’s the NRA’s fault this guy is out there! Can they really be that stupid? Some can, but many of them, as you get to the  upper levels of their organizations, really know better and they hope we don’t!

If this new shooting ain’t a false flag, it’s the second cousin to one and before we are done with this we will again be subjected to the classic “pressure from above and pressure from below” scenario that I and others have written about so often. When it comes to contacting your “elected representatives” about opposing new and upcoming attempts at  gun control measures,  you all know what to do.

Update–5/21–David Hogg(wash’s) latest commentary on the Texas gun free zone school shooting is to encourage all graduating students across the country to paint their graduation caps orange. This will, somehow, magically increase the gun control sentiment among graduating high school seniors nationwide. And if it doesn’t, you can bet the farm the prostitute press will make it sound like it did.

There is an interesting article up on http://www.infowars.com for today, 5/21, that details how George Soros funded that Women’s March that ended up supporting Hogg(wash) and his radical anti-gun buddies. Check it out. And I ask again–is anyone really surprised???

Karl Marx—Deadbeat Daddy

 

By Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

 

On May 5th of this year many celebrated the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. You’d think from some of the articles  I read, mostly on the internet, that  Marx was a daring, bold economic visionary who had come up with a new economic system that proved to be a boon to mankind. Of course that’s the line today’s current crop of Marxist professors have been programmed to parrot. Unfortunately they parrot it to a whole batch of college students who, thanks to inadequate economic education at the high school level, really don’t have a clue and if the professor is good enough he can,  as they say, “baffle them with his BS.”

Supposedly, Marx’s economic vision was put forth for the benefit of the  poor working  people. That that idea was a total charade has been proven by the millions of poor working people that have  perished under various Marxist regimes around the  world. Anyone who believes that hogwash truly has to have spiritual and economic blinders on.

Steve Byas, writing on https://www.thenewamerican.com for May 5th wrote: “While Marx is certainly a central figure in the history of communism, he was by no means the lone originator of communism. And his background demonstrates  that communism did not  spring from the toiling masses of the working class. The reality is that Marx, like almost all socialist revolutionaries, was a product of academia and self-proclaimed intellectual secret societies.” It has been reported that Marx didn’t write The Communist Manifesto on his  own, but rather he wrote it for a group called The League of the Just  (Illuminati) and his name does not even appear on the cover of the first edition.

Donnie Kennedy and I, in our book, Lincoln’s Marxists, noted that Charles A. Dana, managing editor of the New York Tribune hired Marx to write columns for the paper, which was owned and published by utopian socialist Horace Greeley. From 1851 to 1862 Marx contributed about 500 articles to Greeley’s paper—his associate Friedrich Engles probably wrote about a quarter of them. He was more well versed in English than Marx was, and besides, Marx was a bit on the lazy side. It seems, though, that he had no trouble taking pay for the articles Engels wrote.

Leopold Schwarzschild, in his book The Red Prussian published in 1947 by Charles Scribner’s Sons noted of Marx that: “In all this there was nothing to indicate that from now on collections, subscriptions and charity were to be this brilliant young man’s sole means  of support. Nobody could have imagined it, and yet so it was. With the collections and subscriptions of 1844 he embarked on a life which was never again, in all the long decades, to have any other basis.” In other words, for all his supposed economic prowess, Marx and his family mostly lived on charity—and a lot of that came from his friend Engels.

Recently I ran across an article from 2010 on https://hubpages.com entitled Karl Marx Lived in Filth and Neglected His Children. The article observed that: “When an educated man chooses to live in poverty , and raise his children in poverty, that is abuse. When Marx and his wife and children were living in London, a visitor wrote a description of  their lifestyle in their 3-room flat. Not only did the Marx children have to endure the hunger of  poverty, they were raised in filth, or what his friend described as ‘a pig-sty’….Both Marx and his wife came from comfortable homes, hers more prominent. Her father was a Prussian baron. And she, Jenny, was an educated woman when she married Marx. Together they had seven children. Four of those children died young. Only three survived to achieve adulthood. Every biography of Marx reports that his four children who died  young died because of the poverty they had to endure…Marx occasionally wrote articles for newspapers and he wrote his long papers and books full of his philosophies about the ‘struggle’ of workers, but he never worked a day in his life”

He also fathered an illegitimate son, but you don’t hear much about that little indiscretion. The hub pages article observed, in closing, that “By any standard, Marx’ life was a failure, as a husband,  as a father, as a provider.” But, hey, Marx didn’t have time for any of that bourgeois stuff.  He and his fellow socialist revolutionaries/terrorists had  an agenda to push onto the world. They just didn’t have any time available for being good fathers and good providers and good husbands. That was for the plebes, not them. They were above all that!

So all those useful idiots that want to enthuse over Karl Marx should take a step back and realize that, when push came to shove, Marx was little more than just another Deadbeat Dad!

Well, today is the 153rd anniversary of Robert E. Lee’s surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House in Virginia.

This event, so we are told, ended the “Civil War.” As far as the professional “historians” and their appendages in the Fake News Media are concerned, that was it, the end. The South fought to preserve her right to keep slaves and lost–end of story. Unfortunately for them, it isn’t.

Robert E. Lee’s surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia did not end the War. There were still two armies in the field, Joe Johnston’s army in North Carolina, and Kirby Smith’s army of the Trans-Mississippi in Louisiana. Though these would eventually surrender, they hadn’t yet, and the lawful government of the Confederate States of America would never surrender. To this day they have never surrendered. The surrender of Lee’s army was interpreted as being the surrender of the Confederate States of America. It wasn’t!

Jeff Davis had no intention of surrendering the Confederate government. He put it all, records, and cabinet members, on the train to Danville, Virginia and sought to operate the Confederate government as the train moved South. Davis and many in the government were finally caught–and the Yankee/Marxists even lied about the events surrounding that. Be that as it may, the Confederate government never officially surrendered. Clifford Dowdey wrote about that in his book The History of the Confederacy–1832-1865, pages 411, 414.

The Yankee/Marxists, due to having more men, money, and material, overwhelmed us on the battle field–but they never forced a surrender out of us in the end!

So I guess, to satisfy the historians (hysterians) it has been promulgated abroad that the “Civil War” ended at Appomattox on April 9th. That way no one will ever be tempted to ask to see the documents showing the surrender of the Confederate States, with official signatures.

Of course, most astute followers of our history realize that the War really solved nothing and that even though the shooting part of the War has abated for now, the cultural phase of the War has been cranking up since the advent of “reconstruction” and has now reached almost fever pitch, as the Yankee/Marxists now feel they have us down for the count along with most of our monuments and flags. It will be up to us, with God’s help and our grit, as to how far down they have us, but I have the sneaky feeling it ain’t as far down and they think it should be or would like it to be. So it will be up to us, and those we educate for the future, as to how far down we are. Kind of like the picture of the heron trying to swallow the frog–except the frog has got a grip on his throat so he can’t swallow anything and the caption at the top of the picture says “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” That’s where we are right now–so happy Appomattox Day!
