How To Stifle Peaceful Assembly–Bring In ANTIFA

by Al Benson Jr.

A peaceful patriotic group assembled in Portland, Oregon on Saturday, August 4th for a patriotic prayer rally. There was no problem with this, as there should not have been. These are not the kind of folks that start riots. However, at some point the fascist-oriented Leftist group Antifa arrived. After their arrival and their subsequent “activities” which included throwing bottles and other things at the police,  the Portland police declared an “emergency situation” and informed all those present that if they did not leave the area they would be subject to arrest.

This is somewhat the same situation that prevailed in Charlottsville, Virginia last year around this time or shortly thereafter. Several Rightist groups that had assembled there were no real problem until Antifa and others of their Leftist ilk came on the scene, which resulted in all kinds of problems because Antifa started attacking people and only when they defended themselves did the police step in.

It almost seems, in a lot of these situations, as if the police have standing orders not to do anything until someone responds to Antifa violence. If no one responded and the patriotic groups just stood there and let Antifa beat on them one wonders if the police would do anything at all. But once someone on the Rightist side has the temerity to dare to resist Antifa aggression, then the police step in and declare an emergency and break up the rally, whatever it had been about. You almost get the impression that Antifa violence is okay but resistance to it is not.

I haven’t noticed Antifa breaking up an Leftist demonstrations, which often end up destroying private property. But, then, that’s not part of their  agenda while attacking and assaulting those on the Right is. And,  please, don’t let anyone misinform you that Antifa is “anti-fascist.” They are one of the most fascist groups around. When all is said and done, fascism is a Leftist ideology–the second cousin to communism.

It seems that nowadays all you have to do to deprive people of their First Amendment right of peaceful assembly to redress their grievances, or even to pray, is to make sure Antifa shows up and starts assaulting people and the police will end the assembly then and there! Almost seems like that’s the plan. If the group assembling to make a statement is anywhere to the right of Che Guevara then you can almost depend on an Antifa presence to shut down their free speech.

You do have to wonder who tells the police to stand down and let Antifa do what they want and only to  react if someone resists an Antifa assault. Is it the local authorities? Is it someone higher up than them who tells them what or what not to do?

You also have to wonder, sometimes, does the “to serve and protect” written on some police cars refer only to Antifa and not to ordinary American citizens? Why do so many police departments only act when someone at a rally resists being assaulted by some Antifa thug with a mask on? Who are the police there to protect–the Antifa fascists or ordinary citizens?

Has anyone considered that Antifa might be the perfect vehicle to deprive some Americans of their First Amendment protections in a public setting? That thought has occurred to me so I’m sure it has occurred to lots of others also.

And who funds Antifa? That’s a sixty-four dollar question. I’m also sure lots of folks have a pretty good idea–probably the man who seeks to be “the conscience of the world”  is one of the biggest paymasters for them. Who does Antifa really work for? Part of the Deep State? Are they part of the “pressure from below” that is being exerted on the American people by those who are waiting for their chance to exert their “pressure from above” on us? Inquiring minds would like to know–but then, maybe some of them already do.

Our First Civil War is a Culture War

 

By Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I continue to see articles on the internet about how we are now engaged in our second civil war, and although the folks that write most of them are sincere and present some interesting facts, I have to disagree with them on that one point.

Our first “civil war” was not  truly a civil war. It was a War of Northern Aggression to prevent Southern  independence.

I recently read a good article on https://spectator.org/americas-next-civil-war-will-be-worse-than-our-last/  It was a good article, but the author made a statement on page 2 that showed it was not a “civil war” and I doubt he even noticed. He stated, accurately, that “In the end, the war was fought over a single legal issue: whether the states that had freely ratified the Constitution to form the Union could freely leave the Union if they felt it no longer served their interests.” That comment alone takes the War of Northern Aggression out of the category of a civil war in which both sides are contending for the control of one government. That was not the case. The South had no interest in controlling the federal government—all they wanted to do was to separate themselves from it.

The author of the Spectator articles notes that: “The difference between the America of today and the America of what seems like just yesterday is that we once had a common culture” even through the War of Northern Aggression. To be sure, there were differences, even theological differences between North and South, and the author observes this, but for all of that there had been a common culture. Today, whatever commonality there had been is fast disappearing.  He notes that “Today, however, our divisions are so deep and fundamental that Americans cannot even agree on what marriage is or what a man and a woman is (which is pretty darn fundamental).” Well, it used to be fundamental until the Marxist college professors stuck their noses into it. Now it’s all up for grabs and college students are being taught “politically correct” (culturally Marxist) drivel that wouldn’t have been imagined fifty years ago except by the folks at the Frankfurt School. So our culture has been played with, twisted, and is in the  process of being turned into something no one in his right mind wants to see happen. The war on all things Confederate is part of this cultural shift. The author mentions the “lunatic self-righteousness of the Left” among whom “disagreement is bigotry to be prohibited by law or even condemned and prosecuted as treason.” He says that this is a “fire that will not easily be quenched and cannot be reached by cool waters of rational argument.” He’s right there. The Left will brook no disagreement and you cannot rationalize with them. They have an agenda, provided to them by the One World Government people who finance them and you are wasting your time trying to debate with them. All you can do is resist them with the truth and do it in such a way that you can reach that broad group of people in the middle,  most of  whom will not realize we are currently in a civil war until the storm troopers march up to their houses and demand their firearms on pain of death!

Another part of the civil war to change our culture is the concept of voting rights for non-citizens, which several liberal cities are pushing. If they get enough people to fall for that one the non-citizens who voted will end up helping to change our culture just the same  way as giving illegal immigrants the vote will end up changing our culture. That’s something else the Deep State has been pushing. Check out an article by James Murphy on https://www.thenewamerican.com for July 27th, 2018.

Think we are not involved in a civil war, even as I write this?  Check out an article by Paul Craig Roberts on https://www.lewrockwell.com for July 27th 2018. Mr. Roberts, who has followed national trends for decades, notes that: “The evidence is overwhelming that CIA director John Brennan, FBI director James Comey, Robert Mueller, James Clapper, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and the Democratic National Committee are engaged in high treason against the American people and the President of the United States and are actively engaged in a plot to overthrow the President of the United States. Yet the traitorous intelligence officials  retain their high security clearances and have not been indicted, arrested,  and put on trial for high treason.” We have a culture in Washington that is totally okay with this. Civil war against the President and the American people is perfectly alright—as long as the denizens of the Deep State win.

That is the culture that persists in our present civil war—our first civil war. Will the American people be awakened enough to realize this is a civil war they may end up having to fight in—and I’m not just talking about using guns. That’s a good question.

The Real Civil War Is On! (But lot’s of folks don’t realize it yet)

by Al Benson Jr.

Just saw an interesting article by Tom Luongo on https://tomluongo.me/2018/07/20/in-u-s-sometimes-cia-eat-you/  about how we are, at this point, in the preliminary stages of our first civil war. Mr. Luongo correctly notes that the Lincoln atrocity in 1861-65 was not a civil war but was rather a war to prevent Southern independence with Northern aggression.

He notes that a real civil war is one where both sides fight for control of the existing government. And you have to admit, that is what we have at this point. The fight goes on daily, in the prostitute press and on the streets and in the halls of Congress.

Luongo observed, correctly, that “Since Donald Trump held his press conference in Helsinki next to Russian President Vladimir Putin the cries of ‘treason’ have been escalating. With each article written and each cable news segment aired, the position of our leaders in government became clear. ‘We decide what the function of this government is, not you.’ All Statist arguments boil down to the State saves the savage rabble from themselves. Thus forms the ideological core of this conflict between The People and The Government, but really this is about power. And The People want theirs back.”

On one side stands the Deep State Establishment–the FBI, the CIA, the NSA and various foundation-supported Leftist stooges and their profligate “news” media. On the other side, as Luongo puts it are: “our agent, Donald Trump” and us deplorables. It’s a bit of a different twist than our first pseudo “civil war” where Lincoln, Seward, Stanton and the whole Washington Establishment were against us ordinary folks, whether we lived in the North or the South. But, then, that one was all about power, too. All that blather about freeing the slaves was just window dressing. The real name of the game was changing our history, culture, and form of government.

It worked then, although there was resistance. There is also resistance this time. We just have to wait and see if there is enough to preserve the shreds of our culture that are left or if, due to our apostasy, the Lord will be pleased to let it all go down the tubes as He did for Israel in 70AD.

As of now, our current civil war is mostly a war of information–America’s patriots against the Leviathan of the Deep State and its rather slimy Swamp Creatures. The only ones using guns and partaking of violence are the Deep State’s stooges over on the Far Left–the folks that preach gun control and love and–whatever. They can mostly get by with violence where ordinary folks can’t because of the double standard of our current “Justice” system. And if you don’t think there’s a double standard you just haven’t been paying attention for the last 50 years. Ask yourself why Hillary is still walking around while people who have done one tenth of what she has done are sitting in the slammer in solitary confinement.

I am afraid, not too far down the road, this current civil war we are all involved in whether we want to be or not, will get beyond the information stage as the Deep State folks finally decide that they are going to really show us who runs the show. Shades of 1776 and 1861! Those folks who want to just go and hide somewhere and not get involved are going to be forced to choose one side or the other. Conditions will not allow them to be “mugwumps” with their mug on one side of the fence and their wump on the other!

“Love and Peace” and Multiculturalism Really Equal Hate (But you are not supposed to know that).

 

By Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

 

We seem to be wallowing in a politically correct (cultural Marxist) sea, (bilge included) of love, diversity, sensitivity, multi-culturalism,  and a few other “isms” I won’t mention here for the sake of decency. Most of those involved in various aspects of these “movements” really want to convey the idea that they are involved in what they do for the betterment of the world. Yet, if you look at them and what they say and do, you begin to realize that the one thing they all have in common is an abiding hatred for Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. Anything built upon any kind of Christian foundation is anathema to these people and they will go to great lengths to tear it  down.

They loudly proclaim that Christians are hate-mongers, yet we don’t see Christians running around tearing down historical monuments and flags, even those they may disagree with. We don’t see Christians with masks over their faces loudly claiming they are “anti-fascists” as they race to break up demonstrations and parades they don’t agree with. Only the proponents of Leftist love do that—all in the name of sensitivity and diversity.

It should have become more than obvious to thinking people by now that those on the Left that engage in this sort of behavior in the name of diversity really want no opinions out there that dissent from their Leftist dogma. They really don’t want people to have a chance to know the truth. They are nothing more than liars who want to shut down all opposition to the far-left agenda they promote for those big money moguls that finance them. They love no one and hate everybody, and  then they have the gall to call Christians purveyors of hate.

You have to realize that this is all by design. These people may claim to be opposed to capitalism or private property or unequal distribution of the wealth, but what they really seek to do is to tear down completely whatever remains of our Christian foundations. Nowhere is this more obvious than in their assaults on our Christian heritage and culture, especially here in the South!

Our Christian history and culture has to be replaced by some grotesque vision out of the Communist Manifesto, the Illuminati’s handbook for the destruction of a Christian society. And to think, our universities teach this  stuff and we pay to send our kids there to be indoctrinated. Then we wonder why kids are leaving the churches. And I haven’t even touched on what the kids get fed in grades K-12.

I’ll note one small instance here. When we lived back on the East Coast, there was a school over in Rhode Island that invited a prostitute to come in and lecture either one of the middle school grades or high school grades, I can’t recall just which right now. So how much benefit were those kids supposed to get out of this? And this wasn’t someone who had repented and was there to tell the kids how bad it was—she was still in business.

I have looked at a lot of the aberrations that have gone on in government schools over the decades and one thing I have noted—all of them were anti-Christian in some way, no exceptions! But then, the history of the government school system is shrouded in anti-Christianity. That should probably tell parents with kids in public schools that their kids would be better off in some other more Christian educational environment. Unfortunately, in the 40-plus years I have been observing this phenomenon most Christian parents don’t seem to have gotten the message. There are times when you almost feel like asking—“Oh Lord,  how long???”

The Face of Federal Arrogance

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

If you want a good look at the face of classic Federal arrogance look at the face of Peter Strzok during his recent testimony before Congress. He was alternately smug, arrogant, threatening and, worse than that, part of the time he looked almost completely unhinged, like he was about to lose it.

The headline on https://thehornnews.com for July 12th about this august”gentleman” was Disgraced FBI agent screams at Congress over bias questions.

You will recall that Mr. Strzok was the author of numerous emails to his paramour about how bad Trump was and how they had to “stop him” from being president. The emails were bad enough that they got him kicked off the investigation team of the chief witch-hunter, Robert Mueller. His comments were so blatant that Mueller didn’t dare leave him there. His anti-Trump bias was almost malevolent.

Yet when he testified before the congressional committees he had the gall to say that his extreme anti-Trump bias in no way affected his FBI investigation of the phony “Russian collusion” and related events.  If you ever read some of his email messages to his lover you have to realize that his bias against Trump went way beyond extreme. Yet he sat and told the congressmen who questioned him that he in no way let that bias affect his investigative work. Apparently he thinks that Congress and the rest of us are stupid–and the condescending smirk on his face portrayed that amply. He basically told the congressional committee, and by implication, the rest of us, to stuff it. You could see the federal arrogance on his face–I’m part of the Establishment and I don’t have account to you people–I do what I want and if you don’t like it that’s tough!

To the credit of the congressmen they didn’t let up on him and they asked him questions he didn’t like and questions where he tried to hide behind his “classified information” persona. I got the impression he sat there and laughed at the congressmen silently. He thought it was great fun. He’s spent his public career stiffing the public and he likes it because, in his inestimable view, we are not fit to lick his boots. He thinks the same of us all that Hitlery does–a bunch of deplorables that he claims he can smell  when he goes to markets in Virginia.

A little humility would do Mr. Strzok a world of good because he doesn’t seem to possess an awful lot of it. And let’s don’t be dumb enough to let him kid us. His extreme bias against Trump does affect what he does and how he does it and for him to claim it doesn’t is just his lame attempt to spread pure grade bovine fertilizer all over the place to fool what he thinks is a contemptible public.

These “public servants” are anything but that and if you knew what they really thought of us you would positively cringe. But if you want to get even a small idea, look at Strzok’s face on the witness stand. He alternately thinks you are stupid and hates your guts and of course, none of this involves any bias on his part, remember that!

Nikki Hates Guns As Much As She Hates Confederate Flags

I don’t doubt that Donald Trump has tried to do his best for the country and he has done a lot better than any of the presidents in my lifetime, but some of the people he has picked for cabinet officers and for other positions have been people that have only made his job more difficult. Some he picked fought him from day one because they were part of the Deep State and their  agenda was to neutralize him as much as possible. He finally saw through some of them and they moved on, but he hasn’t seen through all of them yet–and one major problem for him is his United Nations Ambassador, Nimrata (Nikki) Haley. Some of what she does goes against the core values of his base and you have to wonder sometimes just who Ms. Haley is working for.

One good thing about Trump is that he has been solidly behind the Second Amendment and the sensible people in this country, the ones that are not dedicated Leftists,  have understood that and supported it.

But Ms. Haley seems to have a penchant for going off  the deep end and has done so more than once. When she was governor in South Carolina, when those horrible church shootings took place, she was first in line to start hauling down Confederate flags. I wonder if she thought such politically correct (cultural Marxist) action would endear her to the Deep State Republican Establishment and might move her up the political ladder. She obviously had her eyes on bigger things than the mere governorship of South Carolina.

So she ended up as Trump’s UN Ambassador (bad pick Donald) where she has sought to flex her political muscle and as she wanted to endear herself to the Confederate flag haters in her Party, so now she seems to seek to endear herself to the One World government types that infest the United Nations.

She has embraced the UN position on world gun control (confiscation).

An article on https://www.infowars.com/alert-us-joins-gun-control-push just noted today, July 9, 2018 that “It was what Fast & Furious and the Gunwalker false flags were about–Now the UN Arms Treaty is back and the US, under UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, has signed on to the measure to track every gun in the US.” Go back and read that again. Let it sink in. Trump may well be pro-Second Amendment but his UN Ambassador has just signed away our Second Amendment rights to the jurisdiction of the United Nations–the organization that author G. Edward Griffin called The Fearful Master. In fact he wrote a book about the United Nations by that name. See if you can still find it on Amazon. If you can you need to read it

So now Haley has signed  us onto a treaty that will start the tracking down of every gun in the country. So who is going to do the tracking for the UN?

Will law enforcement agencies in this country be expected to perform that little chore at the  behest of the United Nations? And if so, will that mean that this country is no longer a sovereign nation, but only serves the agenda of the UN? So tell us–who’s going to come in and take the guns? Lots of folks will want to know.

You may get some law enforcement bodies in this country that won’t be real fussy about doing that, particularly in the South and West.  Or will Ms. Haley just request that the UN send in troops to do that? And what will Mr. Trump think about that? Will he just put up with it because his Carpetbagger UN Ambassador signed this monstrosity, or will he do what he should have done with her to begin with and send her packing? You can bet lots of people will really be concerned over this–Ms. Haley just giving the UN carte blanche to start tracking guns in the US, or forcing US authorities to do it for them. Bad news either way! Want the UN to have a list of every gun you own? That’s where  this is headed unless something turns it around. And Mr. Trump had better be aware of what his UN Ambassador his just done–she’s deep sixed our Second Amendment rights. That may sound far out, but that’s what it amounts to. Tracking and registration always leads to eventual confiscation. Ask the Germans and the Russians.

Pass this information along to all your friends. Everyone needs to be aware of  Ms. Haley’s agenda and Mr.Trump needs to be aware of it too.
