Texas Independence Day 2017

March 2 – Independence Day in Texas.  Want to confuse everyone in the neighborhood this week?  Fly the FIRST Texas flag of Independence on your flagpole, or put it up on your Facebook Page along with the word, “INDEPENDENCE”.  This is the flag flown at Goliad, designed by Capt. Phillip Dimmit, and flown in defiance of the Mexican army, some months before the Battle of the Alamo.   We have a friend in Mexifornia who flies this less famous Texas flag on his flagpole for “Texas Week”.  He says not only will nobody criticize his flag, they seem to be afraid to even catch his eye!  Some of them seem to think it’s a Muslim flag, and being Californians, they are happy to see him “celebrate our diversity,” and not about to criticize him.  Others are just given to a quivering lip and a hasty departure.  The Coahuila Y Tejas flag was one of three flags flown at the Alamo, along with the more well-known 1824...

Memorial Day 2016 – Year of Degradation of the Southern Patriot...

Memorial Day 2016 –  Year of Degradation of the Southern Patriot
There are very few exceptions to the fact that the soldier is a pawn in a deadly game. He never joins with a view in mind of dying – he figures that happens to someone else. The winners write the history books, so as long as we are winning, and those who died are heroes in our textbooks. We would do well to remember, in this 21st Century era of Political Correctness, that there has been one war in our history where both sides were Americans. Every Confederate soldier who died of wounds, or even more who died of disease in uniform, were victims of the politicians who sent them to fight against their own brothers and fellow-Americans. Congress voted recently to strip the battle flag of Confederates from all federal cemeteries, thus partaking in “cultural cleansing” and continuing the subjugation of Southerners who loved their country every bit as did the Northern soldiers they fought. Congress has degraded the memory of those patriotic Americans – men who fought and bled and died for the right of self-determination. (Anyone who thinks that war was about slavery is a politically correct ignoramus. General Grant said it well, “If I thought this war was about slavery, I would resign my commission and offer my sword to the other side.”) The South lost the war, but to this day we retain our pride and our memories of the sacrifices made by 258,000 men. Congress has no shame. Our politicians sacrifice pawns for strategical reasons. But their deaths are still catastrophic to the families left behind. Parents, wives and children mourn just the same, for to them the political reasons are just as meaningless. We remember them, we mourn them. No matter the cause, we recognize that they paid the ultimate sacrifice. And we also need to remember how our Congressman voted this year, when we go to the polls. It’s bad enough that politicians sent them to die – it’s even worse to outlaw the practice of remembering them. This act of a conqueror proves that the North, to this day, scorns the South, and their right to self-determination. One more freedom died this year in America. If we remember nothing else, let’s remember that, in November. Spirit of 1776 – re-elect...

SHOULD SOUTHERNERS VOTE IN FEDERAL ELECTIONS?...

SHOULD SOUTHERNERS VOTE IN FEDERAL ELECTIONS?
It has never made much sense to me for folks to argue that Southerners ought not participate in elections because they want to be their own independent nation.  We understand the logic to it, of course.  It’s the argument of the purist, who would withdraw from all he finds repugnant, rather than work to clean up the pigpen.  But mucking out pigpens or septic tanks does require getting into the filth, but if someone doesn’t do it, then the filth wins.  This is the same zealot who would have argued that General Patton should not have used captured German diesel fuel for his tanks because it was tainted by belonging to the hated Nazis.  Such a fool would not have been allowed in Patton’s presence again.  Even so, there is much to be said for not wasting our time on the federal elections, unless that rare candidate comes along who agrees with you so strongly that you cannot resist.  Otherwise, the Spirit of 1776 should prevail:  “Re-elect NOBODY!” Having said that, we need to realize that our State races are far, far more important than the national election, no matter which State we live in, and no matter what issues are being debated. Why is the race for your state legislature more important than the race for president? Your state legislators hold the power to change the direction of this country, were they to be so educated and encouraged by you. Your state legislators can amend the Constitution to the US, and desperately need to do so – they could start by repealing the 17th Amendment would return power to the States and strip the Feds of control of Congress and the country. Your state legislators can nullify federal legislation and regulations that they believe to be unconstitutional, as it applies to your state. Your state legislators were established in their authority before the USA existed, and based upon that legitimate authority (from the British Crown and then by the People, through elections), they established the Federal government to act as a servant to the States and to the People.  But the Servant has become the Master, and only the State legislatures can bring it back under control. While few state races are likely to be honest, the level of corruption is much lower than in the national elections. ...

The Confederate Flag Needs To Be Raised, Not Lowered...

The Confederate Flag Needs To Be Raised, Not Lowered
Ladies and gentlemen, I submit that what we see happening in the United States today is an apt illustration of why the Confederate flag was raised in the first place. What we see materializing before our very eyes is tyranny: tyranny over the freedom of expression, tyranny over the freedom of association, tyranny over the freedom of speech, and tyranny over the freedom of conscience. In 1864, Confederate General Patrick Cleburne warned his fellow southerners of the historical consequences should the South lose their war for independence. He was truly a prophet. He said if the South lost, “It means that the history of this heroic struggle will be written by the enemy. That our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers; will learn from Northern school books their version of the war; will be impressed by all of the influences of History and Education to regard our gallant debt as traitors and our maimed veterans as fit subjects for derision.” No truer words were ever spoken. History revisionists flooded America’s public schools with Northern propaganda about the people who attempted to secede from the United States, characterizing them as racists, extremists, radicals, hatemongers, traitors, etc. You know, the same way that people in our federal government and news media attempt to characterize Christians, patriots, war veterans, constitutionalists, et al. today. Folks, please understand that the only people in 1861 who believed that states did NOT have the right to secede were Abraham Lincoln and his radical Republicans. To say that southern states did not have the right to secede from the United States is to say that the thirteen colonies did not have the right to secede from Great Britain. One cannot be right and the other wrong. If one is right, both are right. How can we celebrate our Declaration of Independence in 1776 and then turn around and condemn the Declaration of Independence of the Confederacy in 1861? Talk about hypocrisy! In fact, southern states were not the only states that talked about secession. After the southern states seceded, the State of Maryland fully intended to join them. In September of 1861, Lincoln sent federal troops to the State capital and seized the legislature by force in order to prevent them from voting. Federal provost marshals stood guard at the polls and arrested Democrats and...

The Terrible Truth About Abraham Lincoln and the Confederate War...

The Terrible Truth About Abraham Lincoln and the Confederate War
President Lincoln has been all but deified in America, with a god-like giant statue at a Parthenon-like memorial in Washington. Generations of school children have been indoctrinated with the story that “Honest Abe” Lincoln is a national hero who saved the Union and fought a noble war to end slavery, and that the “evil” Southern states seceded from the Union to protect slavery. This is the Yankee myth of history, written and promulgated by Northerners, and it is a complete falsity. It was produced and entrenched in the culture in large part to gloss over the terrible war crimes committed by Union soldiers in the War Between the States, as well as Lincoln’s violations of the law, his shredding of the Constitution, and other reprehensible acts. It has been very effective in keeping the average American ignorant of the real causes of the war, and the real nature, character and record of Lincoln. Let us look at some unpleasant facts. In his first inaugural address, Lincoln stated clearly that (1) he had no legal authority to interfere with slavery where it existed, (2) that he had no inclination or intention to do so even if he had the legal authority, (3) that he would enforce the Fugitive Slave Act, returning runaway slaves escaping to the North to their masters in the South, and (4) that he fully supported the Thirteenth Amendment then being debated in Congress which would protect slavery in perpetuity and was irrevocable. He later famously stated, “Do not paint me with the Abolitionist brush.” Although there was some opposition to slavery in the country, the government was willing to concede everything the South wanted regarding slavery to keep it in the Union. Given all these facts, the idea that the South seceded to protect slavery is as absurd as the idea that Lincoln fought the war to end slavery. Lincoln himself said in a famous letter after the war began that his sole purpose was to save the Union, and not to either save or end slavery; that if he could save the Union without freeing a single slave, he would. Nothing could be clearer. For decades before the war, the South, through harsh tariffs, had been supplying about 85% of the country’s revenue, nearly all of which was being spent in the North to boost...

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Cover-Up Library and Museum...

The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Cover-Up Library and Museum
The tall tales told by the Lincoln cult get funnier and funnier as more and more Americans learn the truth about their own history (as opposed to the version fed to them by the Lincoln cult).  This time the source of their knee-slapping whoppers is a hilarious attempt to cover up the fact that their hero apparently read and studied a white supremacist screed. A recent article that appeared in the Huffington Post, FOX news online, the Daily Mail, and elsewhere described how Lincoln’s handwriting had been verified by handwriting experts in an 1854 book entitled Types of Mankind.  According to these news articles, the book argued that the different races developed at different times, and were therefore not susceptible to co-existing or amalgamation.  “The book was used by nineteenth-century white supremacists!,” screamed the articles. What on earth was Abraham Lincoln, “Father Abraham,” the eternal friend and savior of the black race, doing with such a book?!  The Lincoln cult quickly swung into action creating an alibi.  The news articles all reported that “Illinois state historians” all “took great pains to offer reassurance that the former president who ended slavery didn’t subscribe to the theories at hand” in the book.  No facts were offered, only painful “reassurances” by these state-funded “historians.”  I don’t know about you, but I’m not feeling especially reassured. Even one or two of the Lincoln cult’s Big Guns were un-cobwebbed to participate in broadcasting the alibi.  James Cornelius, the curator of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Illinois, “reassured” the media that Lincoln “could foresee the whole country coming apart over the issue that different people could be barred from different things” because of their race.  He therefore would never have believed the things in that book, said the curator. James Cornelius and the Illinois state historians are full of it and they know it.  These are people who have spent their entire careers reading and cataloguing Abe Lincoln’s political speeches.  They surely must know that Lincoln’s views and, more importantly, his actions as a state legislator, a one-term congressman, a political candidate, and as president, are totally consistent with this and any other white supremacist book of that era.  Consider the following public statements of Lincoln himself from his own Collected Works (CW): “Free them [slaves] and make them politically and...
