Public Schools Are A Dismal Failure



by Al Benson Jr.


Today, June 2, 2019, I read an excellent article on the Zero Hedge website. It was authored by Justin Spears via the Foundation for Economic Education. I would urge concerned parents to check it out.

Mr. Spears starts out with: "In the first part of this article set,  my colleague Mike Margeson spelled out the historical roots of the American schooling system. He clearly laid out the blueprint that men like Horace Mann used to build a system that does anything but 'educates'." What he is saying here is that Unitarian Horace Mann provided this country with an "educational system" that was, essentially worthless! Seeing that Mann's main intent was not to educate but to downplay the influence of Christian schools in this country, I am not surprised. Mann has a reputation as an inventive educator that is not deserved.

And Mr. Spears continued: "In what was one of many fiery speaking engagements, the late John Taylor Gatto delivered a line that has resonated with me as I have studied the effects  the public schooling system has on children. In this particular speech,  Gatto was recounting the story of Jaime Escalante, the educator who successfully taught calculus at Garfield High School in Los Angeles yet was forced to resign.  As he finishes describing the trials and fate of Escalante, Gatto explains that above racism and other forms of bigotry is the embedded idea  that what really occurred was a deliberate attempt to stop genuine learning: Earlier in the speech Gatto laid out a compelling case of how and why schooling is meant to keep citizens ignorant. This success at an inner city school was not going to be tolerated by the establishment. He implored his listeners to understand the real problem and to quit 'fencing with shadows'."

In other words, people needed to get over the naïve idea that throwing millions in public money at public schools was ever going to do any good. All that ever did was to make a bad problem even worse!

Noted by Mr. Spears was the fact that: "Contrary to what those in public education will tell you, the system is flush with cash, which generates very few positive results." Mr. Spears notes that, in 2019, after all the money that has been spent of public education, ...we are still seeing such horrific results in our schools...The answer is much simpler than it has been made out to be. The system is broken. There is no remedy to fix this system. It is fundamentally flawed. The famous saying that you cannot fix a problem with the same mind that created it rings so true. So if reform will not work, what are we to do?"

Again, the answer to this is so simple the educational establishment hopes you never figure it out. You simply need to unschool!  He notes that there are several methods to accomplish the task of unschooling, and one of them is homeschooling. This does not mean that you never educate your kids or teach them anything. It means that you do not do it the way the public schools claim to be trying to do it. You, especially if you are a Christian, need to get your kids out of the public school system--a system that has been engineered to keep them ignorant--and they are especially being kept ignorant of their real history and heritage, which is one of the main agendas of public education in our day.

If there is no real way to reform this broken system then it needs to be separated from, seceded from, if you will.  Lots of folks don't want to hear this. They need to. They need to begin to realize what is happening to their kids while they are in public schools--and what's happening to  them ain't good!

If you can, check our Mr. Spears' article. Don't take my word for it. Find our yourselves.

Lincoln assassination booklet

Series of Lincoln assassination

My blog spot  https://revisedhistory.wordpress.com for the month of May carried a whole batch of articles dealing with the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and how we have been lied to about all that was involved with that.

If all goes well, I plan to put all these articles in a little booklet and try to get this out to some folks who may not have seen the articles.

Any of you all who have read them and found them helpful, if you could pass this word along to folks who may not have seen them, I would be appreciative. I will probably have to make a small charge for them to pay for printing costs, but it should be minimal. I would appreciate it if you would pass this word along to your lists.

Thank you,
Al Benson Jr.

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.
