"Okay, we will pry them from your cold dead hands"

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Needless to say, there are still lots of questions yet unresolved about the recent school shooting in Florida. It still smacks of a false flag operation and when you see how events have turned out since it happened, you have to wonder if the whole thing was a well-orchestrated false flag,everywhere from the emergence of a small dedicated cadre  of Leftist gun control freaks that are students, to the promotion of events like this recent "March for our lives" that went down last Saturday. Through all the continuing Left-wing hype you should be able to discern on thing--these people want to totally negate the Second Amendment and confiscate your guns. They can deny it all they want (and they don't do a very good job at that) but that's what this is really all about--total gun confiscation.

If you are naive enough to have difficulty believing that then you need to look at some of the signs that were displayed by some of the marchers last Saturday--signs like "Ban all guns" or "I wish Obama HAD taken all your guns" or "Yes, in fact, I am here to take your guns." 

An article on www.Infowars.com for March 26th noted that: "The gathering of around 200,000 people in Washington DC was reported as a 'call for tighter gun laws,'  but going by what was written on the placards of those attending, it was about the elimination of the right to bear arms entirely." That's an accurate observation. That's exactly what this whole fuss os all about.  The Infowars article also noted: "One of the current student speakers at the march also let slip the wider gun confiscation agenda when she said during a speech "When they give us that inch, that bump stock ban, we will take a mile."

In another Infowars article it was noted that: "George Soros funded March for our Lives rally is an attempt for foreign actors to take control and steer our public education narrative toward total gun confiscation." You are supposed to think that the vast majority of public school students, all but about a dozen "deplorables" in this country  want Dad to turn over his hunting rifles and target pistols to the Feds immediatelly--if not sooner. I can't speak for other parts of the country,  but if you happen to live in the South or the West--excluding parts of Florida and California--you realize that this is hogwash of the highest grade. You should have observed in all this, that you almost never get to hear a peep out of any student who is not 100% in favor of gun control/confiscation. Normal kids, it seems, have been excluded from this debate. You are not supposed to be aware of them and you are not supposed to be bright enough to ask "Where are all the kids that are not in favor of gun control? Why have we not heard from them also?"

Almost the only one you hear anything from is this David Hogg,  as though, somehow, he has been appointed as "youth spokesman" on gun control for all the kids in America. And let's face it, he does speak for someone, but it is hardly the youth of America, no matter how many of them can be bused in for marches and demonstrations. What you really need to start doing is looking for who pays for all these demonstrations and who pays for ferrying all these anti-gun youths around the country so they can propagandize us all on gun control/confiscation. It takes people with big bucks to do that stuff.

Alex Newman on https://www.thenewamerican.com for March 26th noted: "One of the Astro Turf leaders paraded all over America's TV screens was David Hogg, whose father is a former official with the FBI and whose mother is a far-left activist." Hogg is talking about "starting a revolution." And undoubtedly those that write his scripts have that in mind.

The site https://www.dailywire.com  on March 24th had a picture of Hogg and the article along with the pic labeled him as a "Far-left activist..." If you can pick up this site take a good look at the picture. It portrays a grim-looking David Hogg with his hand up in the air, giving the typical Communist clenched fist salute. That's to let all those "in the know" on the political and theological Left  know that Comrade Hogg is "one of the boys" and anytime you can be useful in pushing whatever agenda this youthful "useful idiot" has been scripted with, you need to do it.

Alex Newman's above mentioned article on the New American goes into some of those who are funding this latest leftist gun control/confiscation push. In conjunction with all this, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) have, just this past Monday introduced a piece of legislation that they call the Ammunition Background Check Act of 2018. This little goody would require a background check on everyone anywhere that wanted to buy ammunition. So, if you want to buy a couple boxes of 22 shorts to do a little plinking with on Saturday afternoon you would have to undergo a background check to be able to do that.

These youthful anti-gun comrades who promote gun control/confiscation are openly talking about threatening our elected representatives if they fail to enact gun control bills. One little thing here--most of these kids are not old enough to vote yet, but most of us are.

Maybe we better start contacting our congress people and letting them know we are watching what they do with this gun control madness--and what they decide to do will probably have a major bearing on how we vote in the next election they have to run in. If enough of us will take the trouble to do that, I think they will understand where we are coming from. Youthful Leftist activists should not be the only ones our elected representatives hear from!

Florida--Another False Flag? Probably!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

During the reign of Comrade Obama there were several school shootings and others that were labeled by those who follow this kind of thing as "false flags." False Flag events are designed to elicit a certain response from the general public and are usually conducted with some help from some government agency or part of one.

For instance, one of the big agendas during the Obama Regime was the dismantling of the Second Amendment and our God-given right to defend ourselves and our families. This is definitely a no-no, because if some rogue group in the government, or the government itself, plans FEMA extended vacations for those who oppose it they can't have lots of folks out there with firearms, nor can they have a public atmosphere that is favorable to private ownership of firearms.

Therefore, those in government who want our guns have to create an environment amongst the public that will allow them to seize our weapons with little opposition, physical or otherwise from the general public. One way to create such an environment is to have a series of school shootings where children are either harmed or appear to be harmed and such an event is then heralded by the prostitute press and many in Congress as a reason to "regulate" (eventually confiscate) firearms. They will never admit this--that would give away their agenda.

Obama and his Marxist cronies in government (many of whom still remain in the new Trump administration) were especially good at acting out this scenario. If I recall, I can remember one congressman getting on television and weeping huge crocodile tears for "the children" as he worked tirelessly to eradicate our Second Amendment protection. This scenario has been repeated so often that after awhile you get so you recognize all the various parts of it as the Establishment weaves it all together into a package that it can sell the public to promote its gun control agenda.

There is usually (supposedly) only one shooter, and he ends up dead in most cases so we never get to hear anything he might have said about what really went down. In this most recent case in Florida they caught the patsy (supposed perpetrator) alive. I have heard, from some sources, that the Sheriff in Broward County is an honest man so that may be why the alleged shooter was taken alive. I also heard that the Sheriff, not the FBI, is handling this case, as of now. That may well have saved the alleged shooter's life. After noting such incidents as the Ruby Ridge killing of Randy Weaver's wife and the murder of Lavoy Finicum in Oregon a year ago, you can't blame most folks for figuring that the FBI's intended victims don't often get out alive, to testify or to do much else.

The school shootings during the Obama reign just about all followed the same pattern--a bunch of kids killed in gun free zones and the Obama and other Soros flunkies paraded before the public to plead for them to contact their congress critters and beg  them to enact "sensible" (eventual confiscation) gun control laws to prevent this from ever happening again. You've heard it all before. I call it "the shootings will continue until the public has the right attitude" scenario. Obama, the Marxist president who claimed he was not after our guns was one of the biggest anti-Second Amendment people around. He might only have been exceeded by "Madame President" had she managed to steal the election.

Thankfully, organizations like the Gun Owners of America (not the NRA) managed to put enough pressure on Congress that, while Obama was in office, they didn't dare vote to confiscate our guns. But, just think of the coup the political left could claim now if they managed to get a gun control (confiscation) bill enacted while Trump is in office.  Trump has been a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Just think of the hay they could make if they managed to get a gun control bill enacted while Trump is in office and he ended up vetoing it. They could scream to the universe that Trump is a callous monster and that he doesn't care about "the children." You all know where that line of bull would go.

Mitt Romney, who is no doubt positioning himself with the Establishment for a presidential run in 2020, has started whimpering that "we have to do something." You're right, Mitt, we do. So how about we start by doing away with gun free zones and by allowing qualified teachers to start carrying during school hours? That would be a big step in the right direction, don't you think?

But that wouldn't fit the agenda of the gun grabbers because, at root, they don't give a tinker's damn about school safety. What they want is gun confiscation, maybe not all at once, but gradually. They will take the Fabian approach if it gives them what they want eventually. Just remember one thing "Gun Control is People Control" and once you surrender your Second Amendment rights you ain't about to get them back before the Second Coming. A  good reason to write your congress critters and tell them to vote NO for any new gun control bill, no matter how innocent it may sound.

A Government Shutdown Solves Lots of Problems for the Democrats

by Al Benson Jr.
Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Well, looks like we may have another government shutdown, compliments of the socialist members of Congress who are still cheeky enough to refer to themselves as Democrats.  But then, I guess you can still fool some of the people some of the time, though it is getting a bit more difficult.

Seems to me I recall that "honest" Chucky Schumer moaned back in 2013 what a tragedy a government shutdown would be. But now he seems to be okay with it. All depends on whose ox is being gored doesn't it?

The reason for this potential shutdown seems to be the DACA program for letting lots of younger illegals stay in this country. The Republicans claim to want to get rid of some of them while the Demoncrats want to keep them all and import even more. After all, importing lots of folks that won't assimilate is a great culture changer and that's what this is really all about.

But I submit that, right now, the Demoncrats have an even bigger concern than the DACA program. They are concerned about the ongoing revelations starting to be brought out about the Uranium One sale to Russia and the Clinton Foundation and their ongoing (and probably illegal) efforts to undue the results of the 2016 election.

On January 19th an article by Kyle Becker appeared on http://www.bizpacreview.com the headline for which was 'Worse Than Watergate': Republicans uncover FISA memo they say changes everything on Trump investigation.

Becker writes: "If a FISA document uncovered by House investigators  proves to be as bad as all appearances, the prior administration will stand accused of abusing federal law enforcement and intelligence assets in order to sabotage Donald Trump's presidential campaign." According to Rep. Ron DeSantis: "The facts contained in this memo are jaw-dropping and demand full transparency There is no higher priority than the release of this information to preserve our democracy." Outside of this supposedly being a republic instead of a democracy, I would agree with DeSantis. Other congressmen have said the same thing. Rep. Jim Jordan says "It is so alarming the American people have to see this," And Rep. Matt Gaetz states" "I think this will not end just with firings. I believe there are people who will go to jail." After all the crap the Klintons and their cronies have pulled on America over the decades, let us fervently pray that will be the case. But I still won't believe it until I see it.

Right now, however, it would seem that this is one situation the Demoncrats would like to see go away. They are in deep do-do up to their necks and they'd rather the public not be aware of all this for any prolonged period of time. Might hurt their chances to steal the 2018 mid-term elections. So a government shutdown right now would do them a world of good--and if it lasted long enough they could work to distract the voting public with more of Trump's "Russian collusion-delusion." After all, they tried to steal the 2016 election, which is what some of this is all about, so why wouldn't they continue this year in their usual habits? Problem is, you have some Republicans that are more than willing to help them (collude with them) in such an effort. The Deep State in both parties, and beyond, wants to put Trump down. He won't play the game by their Establishment rules (helping to keep America and its people last) so he's got to go.

So in light of whatever new revelations the honest Republicans in Congress want to put out there for the public, it would be much better for the devious Demoncrats right now to have a government shutdown to give folks a chance to forget about what absolute scumbags they have been.

If you want to keep up on this situation go to Fox News and InfoWars.com because these are two places you will get the truth about this situation. Forget about the mainstream media. They have lied about so much to so many for so long that they would not recognize the truth if they met it in their soup at supper!

How "History" Professors View the "Civil War"

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Many who will read this are already aware of how our current crop of "historians"--so called, view the War of Northern Aggression. However, some who read it may not be all that aware, and so this is written for those unaware ones who still labor under the naive delusion that the War was fought over slavery and that communism did not rear its ugly head in America until at least the 1930s. Well, it did rear its ugly head in the 30s, but it was the 1830s, not the 1930s. By the 1930s communism was already well established here. It's just that no one bothered to inform the American public.

I spend considerable time on the internet scrounging around for information in those areas that concern me and one of those areas is the record of communist and socialist infiltration in this country, both in the  19th and 20 centuries.

I recently ran across an article by Andrew Zimmerman, a professor of history at George Washington University. The article was written back in July of 2013 and, at that time, Professor Zimmerman was working on an international history of the American War of Northern Aggression. Of course he didn't call it that.

For the remainder of this article please go to my other blogspot

The above link probably will not work for you so you will have to type it in to get it. I am having problems with my email server and so cannot connect with everyone on my email lists. Of late I have been going to the local library and using their computers but we had a little over an inch of snow here in North Louisiana yesterday morning and that was enough to shut everything down--schools, banks, the library, the whole nine yards--and the library is still not open today so I can't get in to send this to my list from my Revised History blog. There are a handful of folks following this blog that also follow my Revised History blog and I am asking them  to please forward this or the link to my Revised History blog along to folks on their email lists so I can get it out there because, at this point, I do not know when my email server problems will be straightened out--or for that matter, when the local library will reopen. I hope it will be sometime in this decade but I have no guarantees. So if folks on this list who can will pass the link to my Revised History blog along to others I will be very grateful. Many thanks in advance.

The Desire For Total Control

The latest commentary by our two political commentators as they take a long view on history.
Al Benson Jr.

The Desire For Total Control

by Schwartz & Viscount

It goes way, way back. Check out the Tower of Babel in the Book of Genesis in the Old Testament. Man wanted to reach to Heaven by his own efforts, to be God, as it were. If you read the Genesis account you see that he didn't quite make it. However, that has not stopped his efforts in that direction for centuries and they continue to this day.

The Caesars controlled the Roman Empire, which was all of southern Europe, the eastern Mediterranean area, and much of North Africa; the known world at that time. Caesar (depending on which one) was a benevolent dictator. You could have whatever religious beliefs you wanted to--as long as you recognized Caesar as Lord. The Christians wouldn't, couldn't, do that, hence Caesar would not have total control--and that was where their problems began. For them, Jesus the Christ was Lord, not Caesar. When Caesar tried to force the issue, and a lot of Christians died, it was the beginning of the end for Rome.

For us in this country, it goes back to the British Empire. King Henry started the Church of England, a.k.a. the Anglican, or, in this country, the Episcopal Church. Henry wanted everyone to worship the way he thought was right, although there was more to it than that. This resulted in the Pilgrims, separatists by belief, leaving England and coming to America so they would not be under the king's control in their worship.

And, as time passed, the children of the Pilgrims and Puritans had major problems with King George over taxes on tea and other things, and finally, at Lexington and Concord, King George discovered that he did not have the total control he craved. The "Divine Right of Kings" was, in the final analysis, only their desire to control all in their realms. In the end, it did not work out. Not that some of what replaced them has been much better in many instances!

But the quest for control continued on (as it still does in our day)! Our ULN-civil war was really not about freeing the slaves; it was, in the end, about controlling the whole country. Lincoln didn't want a country "half slave and half free"--he wanted it, politically, ALL slave. And he accomplished this--more than 80 years after our Declaration of Independence and the victory over King George. One way he sought to control it was with a heavy tariff, beneficial only to the North, which the South ended up paying most of. But that is another story.

Fact is, Lincoln sought (to commend and promote Union troops) many openly socialistic men as officers; men who had failed in their 1848 efforts to coerce the German populace and others into swallowing their Marxist/socialist ideas in Europe. Having failed in Europe they naturally matriculated to the US, where they could then force their brand of total control on an unsuspecting American populace--starting in the South.

You have to ask the question; did some of these guys induce some of the atrocities committed by Sherman and Sheridan  in their wanton destruction of many of the wonderful homes/plantations in the South, along with all the other property they destroyed. One author called Sherman's men in South Carolina "A legion of devils." An apt description! But these were the same tactics used by Hitler and Stalin.

Friends, that is Communism (Marxism)--control by force and destruction. In your minds it may seem far fetched or absurd, but think about this: Is taking over the Communications Commission what the Marxists are doing by forcing local radio and television stations to be controlled by the "already fake news" outlets? Is this one more way to control what is supposed to be an entity for the expression of our free speech (First Amendment Rights)? The FCC has out-stepped its bounds by allowing this to happen.

In fact, you might ask the question--"Who owns the airwaves--the FCC or God?" If the answer is God, then possibly the FCC should think about shutting its doors and sending its people home.We don't expect that to happen, though, because for the bureaucrats the agenda is always control. Little by little, so no one notices, their intention is always control! 

Update 1/15/17
In regard to total control, please read the most recent article on 
dealing with driverless cars and the United Nations' Agenda 21 program which would shut us all up in sardine can apartments in megacities, unable to go anywhere except where these new driverless cars are willing to take us. All for our own "good" of course.

New post on http://revisedhistory.wordpress.com

Our Double Standard

by Al Benson Jr.
Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Does anyone honestly doubt that we labor with a monstrous double standard in this country--one set of rules for the Statist Elite and a totally different set for us ordinary folks, us "deplorables,"--"we the peons."

All the time I hear these windy politicians get up and spout "We are a nation of laws, not of men." C'mon guys, you know better, and so do most of us that pay attention. It's hogwash--100% pure dee bovine fertilizer and I am surprised they can keep a straight face when they peddle such drivel to us. I guess some of them, like Ronald Reagan,  have gotten to be pretty good actors. That may be the way it was supposed to be, but if so, it ain't been that way for a long, long time, for most of us not in our lifetimes. I will be 80 next year if the Lord gives me another year and I never remember it being that way except in the political verbiage.

So let us not kid ourselves. Our Double Standard is alive and well--cultural Marxism in living color. Should you doubt it all you have to do is look at the way Donald Trump is treated by the Establishment versus the way Hillary Clinton (known to some as Hitlery) is treated.

The Statist Aristocracy has sought to have Trump removed from his elected office, supposedly because of his "Russian collusion" (but really because he is destroying their agenda) and they have been working at that for almost a year now.So far they have zilch for results, zip. zero, nada. They have not come up with  a scintilla of evidence in almost a year, but they keep plowing ahead anyway--at the cost of millions of dollars to us taxpayers who, unfortunately, have to pay for their Leftist political agenda, as fruitless as it is. If they get lucky they may come up with some Russian Trump had dinner with 50 years ago and they fondly hope that will be enough to indict him.

Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio is on one of the committees looking into all this, and on www.theeconomiccollapse.com he is quoted as saying: "You can't make this stuff up. It gets worse each and every day...What deep down scares me, if this actually happened the FBI had a concerted effort with the people at the top to go after one party's nominee to help the other party's nominee. If that actually happened in the United States of America and everything each and every day points to more and more likely that this is what took place, it is sad for our country if that took place. And I think it did based on everything I am seeing. All the evidence points to that." In other words, the FBI  and certain people in it, one of them being FBI agent Peter Stztok, actively worked for Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump during the last election. I was not aware that the FBI was supposed to be involved in partisan politics, but I guess,during the reign of socialist Obama, everything was up for grabs and the absolute last thing those people wanted was a 
Trump victory, so whatever they could do to prevent that was permissible by cultural Marxist standards.

This all goes to show you that we have a certain Elite in this country, whether their names be Clinton, Ohama, Bush, or whatever, that are able to govern their lives by a different standard, a different set of rules, than us ordinary mortals are bound by. They can basically do whatever they want and they can get by with actions the rest of us would be thrown in the slammer for. Wrong for us, but perfectly okay for them, even when it comes to outright political chicanery. Hillary Clinton and her auxiliaries did enough in the last election that you can't even begin to list it all in an article like this--but that's okay.Hillary automatically gets a pass for all of it, sort of a "get out of jail free" card that exempts her, her husband, and their associates from what you and I would go to jail for 99 years for.

So, when I read all these articles on the internet, even by so-called "conservative" writers about "Hillary getting busted for this or that" or whatever,  they are not even worth a laugh. These people are dreaming! When I see Hillary on her way to jail in an orange suit and handcuffs, only then will I believe it. Up to that point. "I'm from Missouri." You've got to show me. Up to that point it all sounds good, but it's all talk!

And until Hillary and Company go to jail for the same things you and I would have, as far as I am concerned, there is still a double standard--one for the Statist Elites and a totally different one for us. If you want to convince me differently, then Show Me!

"Journalists" Here and Abroad, Yesterday and Today

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Thoughts about journalists in our day tend to be somewhat tainted and jaded--and for that you have to blame the journalists themselves. Let's face it, bastions of truth and accuracy the journalists have not been. I, with others, have labeled them as "the prostitute press" and in the main, I don't think that's  too far off.

In my library I have some books for enjoyable reading. One of those is one called The Red Fox, written by Anthony Hyde. It's fiction, but in it Mr. Hyde makes several observations that are worth some reflection. For instance, on page 53, one of the characters in the story asks the question "Who rules the rulers?" That's something many of us have asked for a long time, and in some instances where we could, tried to answer it. It's a question worth considering, although most people won't.

On page 233 he discusses Soviet "journalists" and seeks to compare them to western journalists to point out the differences. I don't doubt, when he got this book published (1985) he thought it was an honest question. Today I'm not so sure. The Red Fox is an excellent story and it does hold your interest. You can tell that Mr. Hyde did a lot of research to come up with all the detail in the book. I have heard that this is the way he usually writes, though I have not ever been able to come up with any of his other books, and I have looked. To me that means that people hang onto them like I do and they seldom make their way into used book stores. This is the mark of an entertaining and engaging writer. I've read my copy of The Red Fox fully half a dozen times over the years.

Having said that, I'm not sure Mr. Hyde recognized how similar Soviet and American "journalists" really are. In the Soviet Union the "journalists" were expected to hew the Party line, and if they didn't, in short order, they were no longer journalists. Sad to say it has not been much different here. Many of the journalists or reporters I have run across in this country do exactly the same thing. I did an article before the last election about how the media was nothing more than Hillary's water carrier. And everything I have seen since the last election has only reinforced that view, except they don't only carry water for Hillary, they also carry it for what we call "The Deep State" or the Establishment, or whatever you want to call those that really "rule the rulers."

The idea that the "news media" exists to give the public the unbiased, objective truth about what really goes on has long since gone by the boards. It disappeared with the Tooth Fairy and the Man in the Moon, at least for most normal people. Nowadays the media gives us what "those who rule the rulers" think is pertinent for their well-being, not ours. True, there are exceptions. The alternative media, The Drudge Report, InfoWars, LewRockwell, World Net Daily and a handful of others out there are able to give concerned people enough truth that they are beginning to have some idea of what really goes down. That hasn't always been the case. If you want real news, these are the sources you have to turn to turn to because what we refer to as the "Main Stream Media" has dissolved into nothing more than "fake news" and pure  propaganda--Soviet style! If you follow only them you will have a completely skewed view of world events, and particularly what goes on in the White House during the Trump administration. The regular media gets it wrong so much of the time that you have to realize they are doing it on purpose. Were it only accidental, they would err on the side of accuracy now and again, but this never happens.

Sadly, this is not an especially new development. It has gone on for many years, though sometimes a little less spectacularly than at present. Back before the War of Northern Aggression the "journalists" in the North were making such an icon out of John Brown, the abolitionist/terrorist, that he was literally being compared to Jesus Christ and the gallows he hung on was being compared to Jesus' cross. Talk about an exercise in blasphemy!  This, and the propaganda being dished out by writers of the ilk of Harriet Beecher Stowe, helped to fuel the fires of war in the late 1850s and painted the entire South with a wholly unrealistic brush.

So let us not kid ourselves--"journalists" in America, at least in the last 150 years,  have not stood for "truth, justice, and the American way." They have stood for pushing the agenda, whatever it may have been at the time, of those that "rule the rulers" and the real truth be hanged!

If you want to find out who "rules the rulers" than I suggest you do a little homework. (About 7% of those that read this will follow through). Get on the internet and check out the Council on  Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission, The Bilderberg Group, Skull and Bones, and while you are at it check out the Clinton Foundation. If you are willing to do at least this much then you will come away with a whole different concept of who really runs things in this country and the world. And then you can ask the other question one of Mr. Hyde's characters in his book puts forth; "What the hell will they do to us next?"
