Is Secession’s Time Coming Again?

Is Secession’s Time Coming Again?
  Pat Buchanan recently wrote an intriguing column titled, “Is Red State America Seceding?” His column clearly reveals that an independence/secession movement is spreading globally. Pat rightly observes that in just the last few years some 25 nations have broken free of mother countries and formed their own independent states. And, no, most of these separations did NOT require violent revolution. In addition, talk of secession is currently going on in at least six other regions of the world. And, as Buchanan correctly observes, the spirit of secession is very much alive and well in the United States. Buchanan writes, “The five counties of western Maryland–Garrett, Allegany, Washington, Frederick and Carroll, which have more in common with West Virginia and wish to be rid of Baltimore and free of Annapolis, are talking secession.” But people in Maryland are not the only ones talking secession. Buchanan continues to write, “Ten northern counties of Colorado are this November holding non-binding referenda to prepare a future secession from Denver and the creation of America’s 51st state.” Furthermore, people in northern California are also talking secession. Again, to quote Pat Buchanan: “In California, which many have long believed should be split in two, the northern counties of Modoc and Siskiyou on the Oregon border are talking secession–and then union in a new state called Jefferson.” Buchanan goes on to say, “Folks on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, bordered by Wisconsin and the Great Lakes, which is connected to lower Michigan by a bridge, have long dreamed of a separate state called Superior. The UP has little in common with Lansing and nothing with Detroit. “While the folks in western Maryland, northern Colorado, northern California and on the Upper Peninsula might be described as red state secessionists, in Vermont the secessionists seem of the populist left. The Montpelier Manifesto of the Second Vermont Republic concludes: “‘Citizens, lend your names to this manifesto and join in the honorable task of rejecting the immoral, corrupt, decaying, dying, failing American Empire and seeking its rapid and peaceful dissolution before it takes us all down with it.’” Pat concludes his column saying, “This sort of intemperate language may be found in Thomas Jefferson’s indictment of George III. If America does not get its fiscal house in order, and another Great Recession hits or our elites dragoon us into...

Japan gets it – have babies or your culture dies!
Tokyo funds matchmaking parties to boost birth rate Japan’s birth rate is at its lowest since records began in 1899 and if current trends continue it will lose a third of its population in the next 50 years A matchmaking party in Tokyo, Japan Photo: Bloomberg By Danielle Demetriou in Tokyo 3:51PM GMT 20 Mar 2014 The Japanese government is funding matchmaking events in a desperate attempt to boost a birth rate that has halved over the past six decades. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has allocated an additional 3 billion yen (£17.7 billion) in this fiscal year’s budget for birthrate-boosting programmes as part of a strategy to reverse the nation’s shrinking population. Japan is home to one of the fastest ageing societies in the world, with the population shrinking at a record 244,000 in 2013 alone, according to government figures. The support of marriage – and the active encouragement of young people to settle down – is regarded by government policy-makers as a key strategy for boosting the nation’s birth rate. As a result, local authorities are now able to apply for central government grants of up to 40 million yen (£237,000) for projects relating to supporting marriage and boosting birth rates, according to Bloomberg.   Source:...

The Battle Hymn Refuted

The Battle Hymn Refuted
The “Battle Hymn of the Republic” occupies a prominent position not only within the program of nearly every nationalistic celebration, but also has become a part of many Christian services. Admittedly, the anthem sounds good, but it is far from being a “hymn” in the traditional sense of the word. Many Christians understand its stirring words to provide an image of a victorious Church, but that is just not so! The connotations of a spiritualized patriotism which have endeared it to many, result from a mistaken and cursory reading of the song.   By definition, a hymn is a song which incorporates theological truth into its text. Wonderful examples of Christian hymns are “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God,” “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” and “How Firm a Foundation.” But despite its author’s use of biblical phrasing, the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” is not about Christ “marching” against sin and the Church being “victorious” over evil. The theological truths which it expresses are anti-Christian and anti-biblical, thus it should never be sung by a Christian congregation.   The “Battle Hymn of the Republic” was written in the fall of 1861. While in Washington, D.C. with her husband, Mrs. Julia Ward Howe watched troops marching off to war singing “John Brown’s Body.”She determined to write a more inspiring war song to what was a good melody. First published in the Atlantic Monthly, she received five dollars for her literary effort.   Born into a prominent New York City family, Julia Ward was raised in a conservative, Christian home. As a young woman she rebelled against her parents’ strong Calvinism and ultimately married the Boston reformer, Dr. Samuel G. Howe. She adopted the tenants of Transcendentalism, then Unitarianism, and it was in that light that the “Battle Hymn” was written.   The Transcendentalists became the core of the radical abolitionist movement. Dr. Howe, as well as their Boston pastor, the Reverend Theodore Parker were two members of the “Secret Six” who financed and armed the anti-slavery terrorist John Brown. After his murderous rampage in Kansas and at Harper’s Ferry, Mrs. Howe lamented, “John Brown’s death will be holy and glorious. John Brown will glorify the gallows like Jesus glorified the cross.”   The “Battle Hymn of the Republic” can only be understood within the framework of the Transcendentalist-Unitarian creed. The first...

In Defense of Our Blood

In Defense of Our Blood
Shortly after we formed The League in 1994, I was a guest on the Alan Colmes radio show on WABC in New York. Colmes, who at that time was the liberal half of the TV show “Hannity and Colmes,” asked me if we Southerners would physically defend ourselves if we were denied our rights, including the right to self-government and self-protection. He was startled when I answer unequivocally “Yes!” “You mean,” he asked, “you Southerners would take up arms against the US government if they threatened your rights?” He simply could not believe that someone in modern America could contemplate actually defending themselves and their rights by force! You see, modern America expects us to behave like emasculated Metrosexuals (look it up!) We are conditioned to be perpetual children who need the Authorities to provide for and protect us. We are taught that we should go school, get a job, pay our taxes, consume things, and otherwise do as we are told. We say the Pledge, sing the Anthem, salute the flag, and pretend we believe the American Creed that all men are created equal. And to prove our loyalty to the regime, we offer up our sons and daughters to the military machine that is charged with enforcing the American Mandate of Democracy and Crony Capitalism on the rest of the world. We are permitted by polite society to complain but nothing more. Indeed, if there are those who insist on refusing to be “housebroken” by the regime, they are quickly branded by the usual epithets: racist, conspiracy theorist, domestic terrorist, anti-Semite, etc. And if we question any of these things, we risk being cast out from the status of “patriotic American.” The modern American regime seeks to destroy real manhood, especially among us Southerners, because it knows—both instinctively and historically—that it is only real men who will dare stand against tyranny. And if you know your history, you know that Southerners are “defenders of the blood.” We are mostly Anglo-Celts (or we are descended from other European ethnicities that have a martial tradition), so it should not come as a surprise to those who know our history. What do I mean by “defenders of the blood?” I mean that we Southerners know who we are, where we come from, and what our people have accomplished for themselves...

2013 Texas League of the South Conference Re-Cap...

2013 Texas League of the South Conference Re-Cap
The 2013 Texas League of the South Conference was highly successful, informative and enlightening. The Conference started with Daniel New acting as Master of Ceremonies. He started with a word of appreciation for the sponsors of the event, identifying each of them by name and encouraging attendees to support them. After the initial greetings, the conference opened with an invocation by Pastor Weaver. After the invocation, there was personal message from Dr. Michael Hill for the Texas League, the work being done and his appreciation for those taking a leading role in that work. Pastor Weaver began his first talk with a passage from Romans (Romans 13:1-4). He shared Scriptural passages and historical anecdotes regarding tyranny and ways of responding to tyranny. His examples included references to the Fairfax Resolves, which he encouraged all the attendees to read. Along with other historic examples, he discussed the differences between secession and rebellion.  While elaborating on rebellion, he pointed out that “rebellion is only to lawful authority”.  In addressing the issue of tyranny, he elaborated on the God-given responsibilities of government along with what our God-given responsibilities are. The second speaker was Dwayne Stovall, who shared his experiences from the recent election where he ran for office. He also elaborated on trends he is seeing in other groups as well, noting that all major groups in Texas have positions on the secession issue, with the major difference being the time tables they are considering. He also elaborated on the recent legislative session in the Texas Legislature noting the bills and concerns of interest to achieving local sovereignty. A matter which he brought up worth noting is the amount of debt owed by Texas along with the source of that debt, which consists mainly of school districts and municipal bonds. After a brief break, the conference resumed with author David Thomas Roberts. He shared personal experiences and anecdotes related to his book “Patriots of Treason”.  His personal experiences included dealings with various federal agencies and publishing firms. He also elaborated on the various perceptions of his book and Texas in other parts of the country that his travels take him to. Two of his books were offered for an auction. The auction soon became lively as the bidders sought a prized ‘first edition’ of his book. A representative from the Tenth Amendment...
