The Reparations Game Resurfaces

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

Most of us have read about the reparations scam over the years. It seems as though it resurfaces every three or four years and some socialist or group of socialists pushes it for awhile, but can't quite get enough traction for it and so it goes the way of the Dodo Bird for awhile and resides in political limbo until the next bunch of socialists comes along and tries again.

Let's be honest here, folks. This is one issue that will never completely go away, as the possibilities for redistributing the wealth with something like this are so strong that the socialists and other Marxists among us just can't bear to turn loose of it.

I noticed an article on LewRockwell.com for February 26th by Pat Buchanan about this. Pat observed: "Having embraced 'Medicare-for-all' free college tuition and a Green New Deal  that would mandate an early end of all oil, gas and coal-fired power plants, the Democratic Party's lurch to the left rolls on. Presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren both called last week for race-based reparations for slavery.

Should you wonder what "race-based" reparations for slavery means, it means that only white folks will get taken to the cleaners for this scam and no one else has to worry. This makes it a patently dishonest scheme right from the git-go as anyone with a brain should be able to figure out.

The slavery situation in this country has always been a complex issue. It was never a situation where all white folks held all black folks in perpetual bondage, regardless of what your "history" professors (what a laugh) have told you.

You had a situation in this country with slavery, which existed in all the original 13 colonies, both north and south and in states in both areas after the War for Independence was over. Slavery in the North didn't disappear until the early decades of the 19th century--1810-1840 and even later in some Northern states.

Then you had a problem with who owned the slaves, and all the slaveowners were not white folks.  Some were, but there were also blacks that owned slaves, and American Indians that owned slaves.

So the question arises, at least to me, and I hope to a  bunch of other folks too, as to just how these "race-based" reparations are supposed to be paid. Are descendants of  black slave owners going to be forced to pay reparations to the descendants of black slaves they owned? Will descendants of American Indian slave owners be forced to do the same? Or, as I suggested earlier, will this con game be only for fleecing white folks?

And what about all the  white folks that never owned any slaves? Do their descendants get to pay too? I'd be willing to bet they do.

I mentioned that Kamala Harris was one of those pushing this foolishness. I ran across a short article on https://ussanews.com that stated: "Presidential Candidate, Senator Kamala Harris claimed she supports Reparations for African-Americans but forgot to mention that her ancestors owned slaves...The thing is, Kamala's ancestors used to own slaves--according to her own father...According to Kamala Harris' father, the Democratic presidential hopeful's great-grandmom was a Jamaican slave plantation owner who founded the city of Brown's Town."

That raises some interesting questions. Would Harris, who is a least partly black, be entitled to reparations, or would she have to pay reparations, seeing that her ancestors owned a slave plantation? Of course that was in Jamaica, so it might not apply here, but there might be people here that would find themselves in that boat. So who would end up paying who?

I'd like to see someone address the issue of whether black descendants of black slave owners would have to pay reparations. And how do we go about determining which blacks were here since slave days as opposed to some that have come here from other places since slavery ended. What about all the blacks up in Minnesota from Somalia that have come here in the last three decades from Africa? Are you going to tell me they are entitled to reparations too, even though their ancestors were never slaves here? I surely hope not because if you do, you will not be enamored of my response.

I can't get over the sneaky feeling that this scam is directed at white folks to con them into feeling guilty enough over slavery that they'd be willing to fork over something to expiate their supposed guilt. Let me be blunt here. Since no one alive today has ever lived under slavery in this country and since there have not been any slave owners in this country since the passage of the second 13th Amendment, then no one owes anyone else a thin dime for "slavery reparations." It's that simple, and I honestly believe that all these Demoncrat political fakers who push this drivel fully realize that fact. I think they are trying to build themselves giant voting blocs for the upcoming 2020 elections.

They want to appear sympathetic to the great toiling masses in this country that are not white so they can howl about how they are trying to help out minority voters. It's all a croc, or as they say in West Texas, a pile of cow chips! They don't care about minorities anymore than they care about us deplorable white folks. What they care about are money and power and they are willing to prostitute themselves to those ends.

To say they are pathetic would be to pay them a complement.

"Beware the Ides of March"

The article below was posted on https://www.infowars.com on January 18th.

Political strategist Roger Stone says the deep state is planning to remove both President Trump and VP Mike Pence from office so that they can install Nancy Pelosi as President as part of a coup that will eventually see Hillary Clinton return as President.

"The deep state seeks to fabricate some misdeed by the Trump campaign that is sold as Russian collusion" said Stone.

"That way they can remove both Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, paving the way for Nancy Pelosi to become president."

Pelosi will then appoint Hillary Clinton  to the vacant Vice-Presidency after which Pelosi would resign as president allowing Hillary to take the White House which alluded her grasp in 2016."

Trump and Pelosi are currently locked in a stand off over the government shut down.

Yesterday, Trump pulled a power move by blocking Pelosi's trip to Brussels and Afghanistan by halting her use of military aircraft.

This followed Pelosi's demand that Trump postpone his State of the Union address--scheduled for January 29th--or simply put it in writing.

Posted by Al Benson Jr.
Comment--If they are able to pull this off and Mr. Trump fails to aggressively respond then they will have, to all intents and purposes, rendered the 2016 election null and void and if that happens then it remains to be seen what Mr. Trump's supporters across the country will do and how they will respond to having the deep state and its slimy operatives steal the last presidential election. If such does occur we will know for sure that the rule of law in this country is a cruel charade and that might makes right--no matter how totally corrupt and sleazy that "might" is. We need to really pray that the Lord will put a stop to this travesty, and, if for some reason He does not, then we will know that judgment has seriously begun and it will have begun at the House of God.

Why Do I Get The Feeling We're Getting Screwed Again?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

When Donald Trump got elected many of us felt it was possible, just possible, that the Deep State might have been on the way out. In retrospect I think we should have known better. The Deep State, in one form or another, has been around since the Lincoln administration and we should have realized that it ain't going away anytime soon. That doesn't mean we should quit fighting and just go fishin' rather it means that the struggle will be longer than we thought it would and, therefore, our perseverance needs to be greater. The Deep State is evil and needs to be resisted.

When Trump got to Washington he was surrounded by Trotskyite Neo-cons and left-over Obama supporters who stayed around in the hope of sabotaging his efforts, and mostly they did a fair job of that. He's gotten rid of a few but he's got far, far to go in decimating their ranks while they continue to try to cut his political throat.

He's made a handful of good appointments and a whole batch of lousy ones and he's gotten lots of bad advice from people that, quite frankly, have a vested political interest in taking him down. We should pray for Trump, and for his political discernment because this is an area he struggles in.

I have watched as he appointed various people to different sensitive posts and watched as they worked to undermine his efforts and he eventually had to remove them--only to reach out and appoint another one just like the one he just got rid of and the process starts all over again. CFR member H. R. McMaster and some of the generals he appointed after McMaster come to mind.

I was thoroughly disgusted with Jeff Sessions who, when appointed Attorney General, basically abdicated his authority to the members of the Deep State in the Justice Department so they could go after Trump. Sessions sat it out. It was almost like the Deep State operatives said to him "Just stay out of our way and we won't bother you." He stayed out of their way and Deep Stater Rod Rosenberg ran the Justice Department until Trump appointed Whitaker as interim Attorney General. Whitaker seemed like a good choice, but he was only an interim appointment. Now Trump has finally nominated his replacement, William Barr.

Most folks probably don't know too much about Mr. Barr, I didn't. But a little browsing on the internet turned up the following on https://needtoknow.news   It seems that, according to political analyst G. Edward Griffin: "Barr says he will not hinder or interfere with the Mueller investigation, despite the damage it has done to the President and despite its failure to produce proof of Russian collusion. Barr and Mueller--and their wives--are close friends.  Mueller attended the weddings  of Barr's children."

That briefly tells you pretty much what's going on. If confirmed as Attorney General, Mr. Barr is going to let Mueller continue with Deep State business as usual and nothing will change. Trump has nominated yet another probable Deep State operative that will do him and his agenda no good and possibly lots of harm. I'd be almost tempted to ask "Where does he get these people?" but unfortunately, I already know. You could almost wonder if Trump has a "death wish" because he keeps nominating or appointing people that will do him and his America First agenda no good whatever. And when one of them finally folds and shows his hand, he ends up appointing another one of the same stripe. So I ask the question that is the title of this article--why do I get the feeling we are about to be screwed again? Trump rails against the Deep State--but he appoints all their people to positions when they can work against his efforts. Folks, something is wrong here.

How About Repudiating Obama's National Emergency Decrees?

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America

I watched President Trump's national address about the situation on our Southern border this evening (January 8, 2019) and I must admit I was somewhat disappointed. Obama had this country under national emergency from 2012-2016 and unless Mr. Trump declares a new national emergency over our border situation that will super-cede and therefore replace Obama's national emergency decrees then we will continue to be under a national emergency decree handed to us by Comrade Obama.

I had hoped Mr. Trump would do this in this evening's speech but he did not. He is going to give Congress yet one more golden opportunity to vote money for his border wall. I think he's kidding himself. This current socialist-dominated House of Representatives has already told him to go fish as far as funding his border wall and yet here he comes, back to them with the same identical request and he hopes that, somehow, this time their reaction will be different.

You've all seen the comment about the man who keeps doing the same failed thing over and over and over and yet each time he redoes it he thinks the result will be somehow different than it was the last time--and it never is--and he can't quite figure out why. I don't know if that's where Mr. Trump is or not, but you have to wonder.

I tried to update this once and it wouldn't take it so lets try again. Check out www.infowars.com for 1/9 and see the article about Trump no longer effectively being the President because  the Deep State flunkies in Washington are countermanding all the directives he puts out there. Soft coup???

Update:  Check out www.infowars.com for 1/9,  specifically the article on Trump no longer being effectively the President because the Deep State flunkies in the Swamp are countermanding every order he puts out there.        #Alex Jones

It has taken him two years to get some of the Deep State operatives out of his administration and he has by no means gotten rid of all of them. They infest his administration and they pass up no chance whatever to countermand his agenda on important issues. He decides to pull troops out of Syria and Afghanistan and bring them home and almost the very next day someone in the Pentagon decides he can't do that and so they walk back his directives.  We can only wait and see what he does with that situation. I hope he doesn't just ignore it and hope it goes away--because it won't.

If too much of this sort of thing continues then the electorate that voted for Trump will begin to wonder just what is going on and why and that will make it more difficult for him in 2020. If Mr. Trump thinks he is going to placate his adversaries by "being nice" then he is dreaming. That will never happen. When he defeated Saint Hillary in 2016 he erased all possibilities of that for ever. If he got down on his knees before them and groveled they would still spit in his  eye. Those people don't know how to forgive and the word "charity" was never in their vocabulary. They have one agenda--to turn this country into a third world socialist paradise and if they have to shaft the American people to do that, why that's just great by them. Seeing that so many of us failed to vote for "Madame President" it's only what we deserve, right? Of course if we had voted for her we'd have gotten the same thing!

Obama worked mightily at that but couldn't quite bring it off and so he was forced to pass the baton along to Madame President, except she wasn't quite up to the task of catching it so Trump got it instead. He has done some good things, but I get the feeling that when it comes to indicting Hillary and Company for the whole Uranium One scam he just doesn't have the heart for it. In fact, I get the impression that Hillary and Company are going to end up walking and never have to pay for their crimes in this life. Her  payment for her political "indiscretions" will come in the next life, after she departs from this life and her final Judge will be one she cannot bribe or scare--and then she will pay the full price.

In the meantime I am not sure what Mr. Trump will do about his border wall and our national security, but whatever it is, it would appear he is not quite ready to do it yet.

Trump All Alone at Christmas

by Al Benson Jr.

Mr. Trump tweeted sometime today about being all alone on Christmas Eve tweeting messages to promote his America first agenda. He was being humorous when he did it, but as you watch the Swamp Creatures in that gigantic, corrupt ooze that we refer to as Washington, I really wonder if Mr. Trump realizes just how alone he really is in that bucket of political slime.

There is almost no one in Washington that wants to see his agenda, work out,  even though it will benefit the average American. Most of the Washington slime balls hate Trump so much they would gladly trash the country and its people just to take Trump down--and this includes lots of our "elected" representatives--which fact amply demonstrates that they don't really care about their constituents back home. We only exist to pay their fat salaries and make sure, with those fat-cat salaries, they have enough time to work at subverting the country.

The Demoncrats have already shown us that they will do anything to promote open borders and deep six  real border security. Their total allegiance is to the Deep State--the CFR/Trilateral/Bilderberg cabal and the military/industrial warmongers. These are their gods and these are who they serve and worship, along with lots of lying Republicans.

The real friends Trump has in Washington consist of a couple senators, a handful of House members and maybe some in the military that can't say or do much of anything without fear of being punished. Mr. Trump has  people in his own family circle that support the agenda of his adversaries--like the Bible says--"A man's foes shall be they of his own house."

I hope Mr. Trump, at this point, realizes just how alone with his agenda he really is. If he does, I pray that he will seriously ask for and seek Divine Guidance as to just what he needs to do to defeat those that are trying to take him down.

Mr. Trump, like all of us, is a flawed human being and needs the Lord's help to do what he needs to do. I can understand Rand Paul's statement, made several months ago, where he said he wakes up every morning and thanks God we got Trump instead of St. Hillary for president. Had we gotten her, the country, for all intents and purposes, would be gone by now.

Maybe we should all do the same--thank God we got Trump when we really, for our sins, deserved Hillary! And maybe we should start praying that the Lord will guide and help Mr. Trump to know how he ought to proceed and that the Lord will give him some patriotic people who will help him promote his agenda instead of these leftist neo-cons who get into important positions and then use them to destroy the country.

I just read an article on Breitbart this afternoon where James (the truthful one) Comey made the statement that "There's no deep state." Here's a worthy individual who has been caught lying under  oath how many times, and he sits there with a smug smirk on his puss and blithely informs us that the deep state does not exist! Does he really think we are all that stupid? Or is he so used to prevarication that he doesn't give a tinker's damn? Anyone believing this guy or any of his buddies that are all part of the Deep State, deserves to be fooled! He's about as honest as Honest Abe was.

Let's face it, the American people have been getting lied to for over 150 years now. Maybe its time we woke up, got our kids out of those brain laundries we call public schools and quit believing the fake news media and started finding our for ourselves what's really going on. I guarantee, if you are willing to do that you won't like what you find.

U N Open Borders Agenda--1984 Is Here!

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America


For weeks now many have been watching these so-called "caravans" working their way up to our Southern border from Central America, across Mexico, and now many of them are at our Southern border, holding up a handful of children in front of them while they throw rocks and other things at our Border Patrol people. Let's be honest here. These people are not oppressed aliens looking for a better life--They are an invasion force. They forced their way into Mexico and they plan on forcing their way into the United States. They are part of the United Nations scheme to inundate us with third world immigrants and water down our cultural distinctives until we are nothing more than a bigger edition of a third world country.

It's all part of the United Nations "Open Borders" agenda and they are doing the same thing in Europe as well.

There is a very informative article on https://newspunch.com/un-global-pact-borders-migration  which explains all this, but it is 12 pages long and I cannot reproduce it all here. All I can do is give some of the high spots and hope people will be concerned enough  to check it out on their own. If you are not willing to do a little something then you might not like the version of 1984 we end up with. The article was written by Baxter Dmitry on November 19th.

The article states, in part: "A new UN agreement, which almost all member states plan to sign in December, propagates the radical idea that borders must be opened and a 'new world' created, where mass migration--for any reason-is something that must be promoted, enabled and enshrined as a 'human right.' The agreement also directs national governments to defund and suppress all forms of counter-expression to mass migration within their countries. Critics who oppose open borders should undergo 'sensitization training' according to the text of the agreement. Free speech will die." That's the idea! No free speech allowed so that no one can criticize the United Nations agenda.

Naturally enough, none of the countries that are on board with this UN scheme have bothered to check in to see what their citizens think about all this. Why should they bother? The citizens are only sheep to be shorn by the Grand UN Deity so why should they be consulted about anything? The countries that are signing onto this Orwellian nightmare are doing it without any public debate because they realize that public debate and any sort of public forum will seriously jeopardize this scheme.

The technical name for this monstrosity is the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. Doesn't that sound cozy? This is not about refugees running from persecution, religious or political. It is all about the radical Leftist idea that migration, for whatever reason, needs to be promoted and protected. After all, says the UN, migration is an enshrined "right."  And you should be able to migrate wherever you want, whenever you want, and no country should have the right or ability to refuse you and millions of your brethren entrance. You should be able to go where you want when you want, as many of you as want and to be able to adulterate any culture you disagree with and the people of that culture should not be able to prevent your efforts at cultural genocide. Thus saith the mighty UN.

So far, most member countries are expected to sign up for this, with, so far, the exception of the United States, Australia, Austria, Croatia, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland. Seems like some of the former Iron Curtain countries have more common sense than some of the so-called Western European countries.

Anyway, this is the One World game that is currently under way and I have no doubt whatever that all this foolishness with these "caravans" may be an integral part of it. Our leadership, from Trump on down needs to realize that we don't want any part of this internationalist insanity. The idea the John Birch Society had years ago about getting the US out of the UN is looking better with each passing week.

There is a bill in the House now, HR 193 to get the US out of the UN. Why not contact your congress critters and tell them to support this bill and they need to do it now because once the demoncrats take over the House in January it will get buried forever.

Update: This morning 12/1/18 on the Zero Hedge website there was an article noting that, in Europe "criticism of migration" is set to become a criminal offense.

The article noted: "Europeans concerned about borders, language and culture may soon find themselves in the hot seat after Dutch politician  and European Parliament member Marcel de Graaff issued a dire warning over the 'definition of hate speech' which will criminalize speech opposing mass migration, as was first reported by Joe Schaeffer of LibertyNation.

So there you have it, folks, to be critical of any mass migration, if you live in Europe may soon be characterized as "hate speech." We can only wonder how long it will be before some "useful idiot" Congress critter in this country will introduce a similar bill in Congress, especially with the Demoncrats having "influenced" the House in the recent elections. Keep your eyes peeled because you have not seen the last of this.

If You Think Problems With Government Schools Are New You Better Think Again

by Al Benson Jr.

Member, Board of Directors, Confederate Society of America


Many seem to think that problems with the content of what passes for education in public schools is, somehow, a recent development, maybe a problem for the last twenty years or so, but certainly no longer. If you are one of those folks you need to rethink your position and gain a little perspective in this area. Public schools have been a major problem for longer than any of you have been alive. That statement may shock some, but the evidence is out there if you are willing to pursue it.

I have been collecting info about what goes on in public schools for close to five decades now. What has gone on in public schools for the past 50 years is, believe it or not, not the real problem--but it is a very dramatic symptom of the real problem. The real problem goes all the way back to the early 1800s. More on that in the future as the Lord allows.

For this article I want to deal with some of the symptoms so you can begin to see what the real problem (anti-Christian "education") produces, and how it works itself out through the symptoms.

I have an article in my files from the Providence (Sunday) Journal from Providence, Rhode Island for Sunday, 3/19/72, the headline for which is: Cranston's Controversial 'Prostitute Case'. It was written by a M. William Salganik. I know nothing about him.

Mr. Salganik wrote, in part, "The uproar in Cranston, (Rhode Island) over a prostitute who spoke to a high school social studies class is the latest in a series of schoolroom crises. Those who were horrified by the appearance of a prostitute in a public school classroom say it is the latest instance of teachers overstepping the bounds of good taste or good judgment." Some, however, defended having the prostitute there and accused those opposed to it of an "attempt to suppress creative teachers and trample on academic freedom." How often have you all heard that line over the years? To those who spout it "academic freedom" means their unfettered ability to shove whatever propaganda they deem relevant down your kids' throats and you will have nothing to say about it--so just shut up and sit down. After all, the job of brainwashing your kids belongs to the state doesn't it?

Reading Salganik's article, you are confronted with the unpleasant truth that "change agents" were using public schools in Rhode Island as a seedbed for revolution. Salganik noted several other schools in Rhode Island that had problems of this nature--one is Scituate, Rhode Island  where students were fed a "black history" course larded with four-letter words and one in Warwick, Rhode Island where students had an "art project" in which students painted "peace symbols." Folks who don't know better, even today, think the "peace symbol" is really all about peace. It isn't! It has a very interesting history--and an anti-Christian one!

There was quite a fuss over some of this in Rhode Island, particularly the prostitute in the social studies class. I recall having had social studies in school. By the time I came along social studies had replaced American history in most schools, at least in the North, and it was a poor substitute for history. But, then, if the kids aren't taught real history they can't speak up in its behalf or ask penetrating questions about it now, can they?

And while I can appreciate the folks who felt teachers were stepping over the bounds of good judgment, they really didn't understand the problem. The problem really wasn't teachers with bad judgment--the problem was--and still is--an "education" system that seeks to indoctrinate your kids in a world view totally alien to what you want them to embrace. It has nothing whatever to do with real education or true academic freedom and everything to do with socialist indoctrination.  The object is to desensitize your kids along the lines advocated by those in the Frankfurt School have laid out for them. If, by now, you don't know what the Frankfurt School is, look it up on the internet and do a little homework. If you are a Christian parent you won't like what you find.

Bear in mind that what I am noting here in Rhode Island took place a short two years before the Textbook Protest in Kanawha County, West Virginia, so there was a big push for this stuff in public schools in this country in the 1970s. In West Virginia the parents revolted over this kind of trash passing for education. In Rhode Island they just complained and didn't revolt. Mores the pity!

Even with my brief comments you should be able to see how bad some of this stuff was. You also should be able to see that, with all that has gone on for so long, chatter about "reforming" the public schools is just that--idle chatter! Real reformation for public schools will never happen and you need to realize that somber fact. The public schools are doing what they were really intended to do--indoctrinate your kids with an anti-Christian worldview. When you begin to realize that, you will begin to see that it is a waste of time and effort trying to reform them. What you really need to do is to separate from them and find Christian alternatives. There are some out there, Exodus Mandate being one of the most notable.
