Pressure From Above–Pressure From Below–Playing the American people for suckers

by Al Benson Jr.

Several years ago, back in the planned revolution of the 1960s, a young college revolutionary, James Simon Kunen, of New Left persuasion, wrote a revealing little book called The Strawberry Statement: Notes of a College Revolutionary that was published by Avon Books of New York.

I guess, in his own way, he was trying to explain what the so-called “spontaneous” campus riots of the 1960s were all about. In some areas his observations were a bit naive, but in other areas, he showed some perception of what was going on and who was paying for it all. As as aside, I worked at a college on the East Coast during the Kent State affair when all the students in the local colleges took to the streets and believe me, there was nothing “spontaneous” about those campus riots. They were well-coordinated all around the country to create just the situation Kunen mentioned in his book.

Kunen, on page 130 of his book, made the following observations: “Also at the convention, men from Business International Roundtables–the meetings sponsored by Business International for their client groups and heads of government–tried to buy up a few radicals. These men are the world’s leading industrialists and they convene to decide how our lives are going to go.” Sounds like the Bilderbergers or the Trilateral Commission, with which I am sure there must be interlocking memberships. Kunen continued: “These are the guys who wrote the Alliance for Progress. They’re the left wing of the ruling class.” He talked about people who wanted Eugene McCarthy in as president, but they felt the only way for McCarthy to win was for the radicals to act up enough that they made McCarthy look like a centrist instead of a leftist. This is so reminiscent of tactics that are still used to befuddle the American public today.  In many cases, the Democratic candidate has been made to look really left-wing to scare people off so they will end up voting for the Republican (who is really as leftist as the Democrat) and all the Republican has to do is bite his tongue and utter a few conservative shibboleths that will ensure his election. In recent elections using this tactic has been enough to guarantee Republican victories. And you can be darn sure the useful idiots who voted for him will never bother to check out what he said as opposed to what he ends up doing. Of course they play it the other way, too. In the last two elections the Republicans have picked the two weakest sisters in their stable of weak sisters to guarantee that our current Marxist-in-Chief was a shoo-in.

Anyway, on page 131 Kunen continued: “We were also offered Esso (Rockefeller) money. They want us to make a lot of radical commotion so they can look more in the center as they move to the left.” Such quotes are quite revelatory if you think about it.

They prove the old contention that the American people are being and have been led, for years into buying into an old Communist tactic known as “pressure from above and pressure from below.” This pressure is always applied pretty much the same way and always used to achieve specific goals in the ongoing plan to restrict our liberty.  A prime example was the so-called “Patriot Act” which Congress was coerced into voting for in the emotional heat of the moment, without ever even having the chance to read it. It was supposed to “protect” us from all those nasty terrorists, when all it really did, overall, was to enact severe restrictions on our liberties. Then we had to go to war with Iraq because those nasty terrorist thugs employed by Saddem Hussein had all those weapons of mass destruction and so we had to take them out by our unending “war on terrorism” which still goes on. You know how it is–perpetual war for perpetual (Communist) peace. As for all those weapons of mass destruction that were being hoarded by Saddam–well they never really found any. You could put all the WMD’s they found under George Bush’s kitchen table! But not to worry–the “war on terrorism” continues on, and on. Now we are being told that we need to invade Iran because they are testing nuclear weapons. I find it very interesting that, in the Middle East, what we end up doing is invading all those countries that the State of Israel seems to have a problem with. And that subject is one that, unfortunately, most Christians in this country, at this point, are light years away from even trying to think about dealing with.

But, for a moment, let’s go back an analyze what this young college radical has told us–wealthy industrialists in this country buy left-wing radicals so they can look moderate while the radicals in the streets look like barbarians.  And the average American, caught in the middle, will always look to government to protect them from the barbarians at the gates–and the government is more than willing–at the cost of your liberties they will “protect” you from those their friends have recently bought and paid for–to scare you into trading your liberty for security. In plain English, they are running a scam on the public. Just trade your liberty for “security.” And, of course, part of that security they provide will be gun control, supposedly to “remove guns from the hands of the criminal element.” What they don’t tell you, however, is that they have redefined who the “criminal element” is. Now the criminal element consists of Christians who believe the Bible, home schoolers, defenders of the Second Amendment, veterans, people who voted for Ron Paul, etc. Anyone buying this old dead horse deserves to get fleeced! We have seen, with a handful of “false flag” shootings, what our new Marxist-in-Chief  and the head of his “Just-us Department”  has planned for gun owners in Amerika. Exactly the same thing Stalin planned for them in the Soviet Union!

Thanks to our government school mis-educations most Americans have lost the ability to really know what the politicians are doing. We no longer seem to have discernment. We can’t seem to grasp anymore the novel concept that we have to start checking out what these prevaricators say against what they do. Until we can, somehow, relearn that basic concept things will continue from bad to worse. It’s almost as if the Lord has blinded our eyes to the truth so that we can believe the political fables we seem to love so much. If that be the case, then this country is under judgment and needs to repent. Will our churches wake up and lead the way?

For those who might be interested enough to do a little research on their own, (and I realize you will be in the minority) I would recommend two books, one published in 1972 called None Dare Call It Conspiracy and one published in 1976 called The Rockefeller File. Both were written by the late Gary Allen and I am told they can  be found now on the Internet. If you want to find out how, you, the voting public, have been scammed, check out these two books. Having read them both, I can recommend them.
