Since July 4th is the day we are supposed to celebrate our “freedom” under this glorious Union, I thought it was appropriate today to take note of this short article I came across on the Rebellion Blog Spot the other day. It fit in so perfectly with our vaunted “freedom and independence” in the “freest country in the world” (according to Bush 2) I just couldn’t pass it up.

A man in a city in Florida was not happy with the politically correct stance of Walmart in their mad rush to empty their stores of Confederate flags after the tragedy in Charleston, which is conveniently being blamed on the flag instead of the medication the young man was on. So he went and stood in front of his local Walmart with a Confederate flag, fastened to a plastic pole.

It didn’t take the Thought Police, this time in the form of the local police, long to arrive to apprehend this most dangerous threat to society–after all this man was carrying one of those “racist” flags! The man was not aware anyone had even called the police about his activity until the local gendarmes arrived.  So, when a policeman ran toward him shouting “put the flag down! Put it down now” he was surprised and asked the policeman why. When he tried to explain to the officer why he was flying the Confederate flag, the officer, in his strictest “to protect and serve” mode shouted back at him: “I don’t give a flying f— about what you have to say, you know you can’t fly that flag.” Life in the “land of the free” ain’t it wonderful??? More policemen converged. So the man laid down his flag, was handcuffed and placed in a squad car, all the usual police harassment. Rapists and Muslim terrorists get treated better.

He finally managed to talk to one of the officers and explain why he was there with the flag, and the officer’s comment was quite revelatory. The officer said: “Well, I understand why you are doing this but that flag is becoming illegal and you can’t fly it here because it makes the people feel threatened, that’s why we’re here.” I wondered as I read the policeman’s comment–does the police department in this town know something about the future of the Confederate flag that they have not said anything about yet? Are there. indeed, plans to make it illegal and have these plans been spread abroad to police department around the country–especially in the South? As far as one man with a Confederate flag causing people to feel “threatened” you have to wonder if that’s all it takes to scare our citizenry. If that’s really all it takes to scare the living daylights out of our people, then the Muslims, Putin, or anyone else who wants to take over the country doesn’t need weapons–all they need are batches of Confederate flags to wave at everybody and any opposition to them will automatically disappear because the people will feel “threatened.”  The “threatened” populace will simply disappear–frightened to death by that horrible flag!

It would be interesting for the public to find out what plans our Ruling Elite have for this kid that shot those folks in Charleston. So far, in the past few years, he’s been the only shooter that has been taken alive. So you have to assume, with that goofy photo of him with the Confederate flag in his hand, that they have plans for him. Is he supposed to “testify” at some point and name all the “hate groups” in the South  that prompted him to do what he did, or what? And while we are at it, why not get a list of the medications this kid is or has been on? The fact that this kid is still alive points to there being some use for him in the future.

The theological and political left, along with our Ruling Elite, have been enemies of anything Christian or Confederate literally since day one and so if they see opportunity to use this kid as a tool to further their agenda against anything remotely Confederate or Southern, I have no doubt they will pursue such a plan with total abandon–and the prostitute media will give them all the cover they need.

A recent poll noted that, even after all this hoopla over the Confederate flags and symbols, Americans in general still supported the Confederate flag by around 57%, which is very close to where support for it was fifteen years ago. So the millions they have spent getting the prostitute media to demean the flag have been spent for naught. That’s not to say they will quit. “Those people” don’t quit. If they lose today they are back next week. That’s something we don’t seem to grasp yet.

You have to wonder about their plans for the 57% that still support the Confederateflag.Will they (or have they already) seek some kind of ban, so that in our professed “land of the free” we will no longer have the right to fly Confederate flags? Did the police officer’s comment about the flag “becoming illegal” inadvertently reveal an already pre-planned agenda for the demise of the flag?  And, if so, what will we do about it?

Folks, if y’all don’t have a Confederate flag it’s about time you got one–and started flying it!

Dear Patriots:

I will SAY AGAIN what Our Confederate Society has been saying for the last 23 years and long before that by Our Ancestors:

“Our Confederacy is the ONLY thing standing between HOPE & HOPELESSNESS!”

 And NO, the Civil War is NOT DONE as the issues then, remain every bit as unresolved today and they had NOTHING to do with slavery! Sadly, they have become WORSE!

America long ago became a Plagiarized country thanks to the Usurpation resulting from a concocted Civil War.

As the writer, herein and attached below these comments, notes we indeed had one of the Finest Fighting Forces this world has ever seen and they were raised in DEFENSE of a nation but NOT for purposes of OFFENSE towards another. That kindred spirit resides in MANY of us today and like our Brethren before us, we too do not correlate or ‘cotton’ to- SURRENDER.

America has been ALTERED purposely through divisive Political means creating the malaise we see today- ALL of which was predicted by our ancestors should we be ultimately overrun by the Greater numbers confronting us/them back then. And as them, we will NOT go easy this time as well.

America has been compromised Politically, Economically and Culturally resulting in a Void of Identity, Origin, History and CULTURE in order for the unspeakable to advance.

Unless SEPARATION is effected, a great HOLOCAUST of despair & pestilence will, not if, come!

It is happening right now thanks to the efforts of 587 bureaucrats in the no-longer People’s ‘congress’ with 2 of the most egregious characters ever to occupy the White House. 
Socialization is beyond obvious but a more sinister Ideology that is driving it has been hiding in the shadows for decades.

Since they did not let us go the first time around when the Folks had a better grip on ‘Life’s Reality’ and the hardships that come from them, and the Laws created from God’s Scriptures with Courts who identified with the Constitutional Interpretation of the Republic’s Laws as opposed to the opposite that exists today, we have no reason to expect our efforts this time will prove successful UNLESS an Epiphany is realized by the Greater Majority….but WE will try NEVERTHELESS NO matter the odds.

This is what will be required as the Government THEN, in NO way resembles the government of TODAY whose Individual Branches are No longer separated but rather, ACT as Intertwining Composites/Branches of one another!.

The Solution is simple- they MUST go their way and we MUST go ours as the ‘Twains’ are NOT at ALL compatible and NEVER have been!

Neither is it realistic to expect them to be ‘reconciled’ by the 2-Party Duopoly that serves themselves at the expense of the electorate which are clearly extensions of one another offering us Nothing other than rhetoric while they continue to pillage & steal from us through THEIR Legislative Process.

 They are simply opposite wings of the Same Bird!  Thus, Resolution MUST come from the People.

Expectations suggesting these problems are ‘correctable’  via a ‘voting process that delivers us NO Real Choices, is and has been for some time an exercise in futility as the 2-Party Duopoly serves as active parasites sucking the blood and bone-marrow from America’s once indestructible core.

That is pretty much the sad but harsh TRUTH of the American condition.

There is NO way around it any longer other than a Peaceful Separation or……….Revolution.

Again, all we ever wanted was NOTHING MORE THAN TO BE LEFT ALONE but our Land was filled with entirely too much ‘milk & honey’ and Those People needed it in order to advance their Pervasive Politics in order to realize their acrimonious position of today wherein they are nothing more than modern-day Pirates conducting themselves every bit the same as Political Vampires!

  SEPARATION IS PARAMOUNT!    SEPARATION IS SURVIVAL!

Respectfully and Confederately,

Craig Maus,

By Howard Galganov:


I read and reread the entire script of the REBEL tune called DIXIE-LAND, used as an ANTHEM by Southern Troops during the War Between the States. And not in any of the many verses, did I read a single word about Slavery . . . or against the Blacks.

Click here to read all the versus of DIXIE:

Outnumbered, Outspent, Outgunned . . . There never was a greater, braver, or more passionate FIGHTING FORCE anywhere on modern earth, than the Confederates, who were in my opinion the best America had then and now.

These folk were not, AND ARE STILL NOT the kind of people who CUT AND RUN, or surrender their values no matter how hard it gets.

Click here to see and hear a snapshot of the South FIGHTING for FREEDOM:

History is replete with incredible battles and skirmishes fought by the South to save and preserve their territory, values, and way of life from Northern USURPERS. And unlike the North, which wanted to control the South, all the South wanted was nothing more than to be left alone.

FORGET SLAVERY . . . It was not the reason for the Civil War. Slavery was practiced by very few in the South, with the greatest benefit going to the Northern Industrial Class, while the average Southerner worked hard to make a living and build their society without Slaves.

AND EVEN WITH SLAVERY . . . it was not sustainable, as most of the South was moving away from the costs and horrors of owning Human Beings, while the rest of the South’s Global Market was not in favor of such a vile trade.

SLAVERY WAS THE NORTH’S EXCUSE TO GO TO WAR . . . NOT THE REASON:One way or the other, Slavery in America was on the way-out, EXCEPT, it made a tremendous excuse to go to war against a FREE and different society from Northern Carpetbaggers.

AND LET ME TELL YOU THIS . . . Man for Man, Soldier for Soldier, Cavalry Rider for Calvary Rider, General for General, Courage for Courage – THE NORTH HAD NOTHING ON THE SOUTH.

Had the South had the wealth and manpower of the North, America might be whistling DIXIE today, rather than singing the Battle Hymn Of The Republic.

LIVING AMONGST HISTORY BROUGHT TEARS OF REVERENCE TO OUR EYES:Anne and I traveled the length and breath of the South, from the Mason Dixon Line to the Heartland of Texas. We visited, walked and climbed the hills and ramparts of some of the most Famous Civil War Battlefields, absorbing the history, culture and mood of the time.

And had we been part of the South when war was declared in 1861, I would have been wearing Grey and Shouting the REBEL YELL, as I too would have stormed the Northern barricades and defended the Land of Dixie.

THE LIES AGAINST THE SOUTH:I grew-up as a Liberal, watching Hollywood Movies, seeing how backward was the South. And as a young and fairly observant Jewish Boy, I was led to believe that the South was a vipers’ den of Jew Hatred.

And then I started looking into Jewish History in the Deep South at the time of the Civil War, and quickly discovered how the VAST MAJORITY of Southern Jews gave it their all for DIXIE.

And how the South repaid and honored their Jewish Rebels with the ONLY Jewish Military Cemetery (Richmond VA) outside of Israel, and how General Robert E Lee encouraged Moses Jacob Ezekiel, the first Jew who went to the Virginia Military Institute, distinguishing himself in battle, to use his incredible gift of ART to become an extraordinary sculptor.

AND AFTER ALL THE DUST SETTLED – IT WAS EZEKIEL . . . who created the Confederate Memorial at Arlington National Cemetery, which the LEFTIST BIGOTS now what removed.

DISTORTION OF HISTORY IS BUILT ON LIES, IGNORANCE, AND RACISM:America is under attack on multiple fronts:

1 – LIES . . . It doesn’t matter whether it is part of Media coverage, our educational system, and/or politicians, because the American people of all ages are being fed a deluge of lies about the South, the Civil War and Southern Heritage.

2 – IGNORANCE . . . Because of distorted history, and no will on the behalf of the LEFT to set the record straight, the entire Confederacy, not just the Slave Traders is being treated as if it was the precursor to Nazis.

3 – RACISM . . . It’s all well and good for the LEFT to ALWAYS focus on racism to demagogue their adversaries, WHEN IN TRUTH, the real racists are amongst the LEFT, who are indeed poisoning the American Well through their lies and MIS-TEACHING of history, even after more than 150-years have past since the GRAY fought the BLUE.

Editors note: Perhaps after this past week, Washington should redesign the US Flag to have just one big Star in the center to represent Washington DC, since all the States gave up the last vestiges of any sovereignty in the Obamacare case SCOTUS case where Roberts ruled the definition of the word State is Washington DC! 



Dear Patriots:

  Let us understand what has been happening over these last 15 decades in which America has been RECONSTRUCTED that Obama refers to in the contemporary as “TRANSFORMATION”;

The American government NO longer has 3 branches of government and before you DISCOUNT this let me explain.

 - When Lincoln and Company’s Civil War ended, the Federal Republic created by the Founding Fathers CEASED TO EXIST.

 -ALL Independence and former Sovereignty granted to the States was stripped from them & became housed under the NEW Central-National government that was created from it (Civil War).

  - Over the next 15 decades, ANY decisions relative to ‘Social’ programs in particular, that were heretofore under the auspices of the State’s, fell under the JURISDICTION of the Central-National government…

 -Whereas before, the Individual States controlled the Magnitude associated with ANY ‘Social’ programs, a One-Size Fits All Variety of PROGRAMS was created by the NEW Central-National government and SUBJECT ONLY TO THEIR INTERPRETATION moving FOREVER forward.
The POWER that would be realized from this, Politically, would be ENORMOUS!

- And over time, as we have discovered, it was in the GOVERNMENT’S BEST INTERESTS to expand these various Social Programs with little, if any positive effects, for ANYONE.

-  With their ability to ‘Collect’ and expand the Tax Basis without OPPOSITION, as the States were now HELD hostage to the behemoth residing in Washington, the 2-Party Duopoly quickly learned how easy it would be to become the Fox in charge of the People’s Hen House, advancing & building a Power Base in ALL things great and small that was originally prohibited to them under the Original Federal Republic.

-  They could Impact & INFLUENCE virtually ANYTHING resulting in a Tactical Divide among the People that served ONLY THEIR POLITICAL INTERESTS.

-Essentially, by playing Many off of one another while they controlled the purse strings, ANYONE or ANY THING could be blamed for the FAILURES They Caused. And over time, with the dumbing down of each ensuing generation since the Civil War, any margin of reflection as to what was going on was lost….as they now also control the ‘educational system’ via their National Education Department who controls the purse strings via the subsidies they WILL or WILL NOT extend to the States.

What a Masterful Concoction of Remarkable Deceit and ALL PLAYED OUT RIGHT UNDER EVERYONE’S NOSES.

The usage by the Politicians of Special Interest groups on a National Level, AND IN CONJUNCTION WITH AN EVER-EXPANDING BUT DIFFERENT DEMOGRAPHIC BASE, simply put RECONSTRUCTION on a Fast-Track.

-  Now it wouldn’t be long before the ‘OLD’ would again conflict with the ‘NEW’ as it was becoming clear to many that more than just ‘changing times’ was occurring but rather a fundamental change in the dynamics of Government Power & Orthodoxy was clearly afoot.

-  Thus People started, for the first time in many a decade, to refer to Their Declaration and the basics associated with the Original Republic’s creation.

And it wouldn’t be long before they started to ‘Connect the Dots’.

-  Now they were beginning to understand what CAN happen when Government controls Those Dynamics associated with ‘Social (ized)’ programs and what the corresponding consequences are- such as OBAMA’S ‘CARE’.

-  In a DESPERATE attempt to STOP what many folks were just beginning to realize, they called upon their States and their State Attorney generals to DO SOMETHING.

-  Thus many States would wind up PLEADING their position before the government’s ‘Supreme Court’- NOT ONCE but TWICE!

-  And the results, despite the Language of the LAW (the 2nd attempt for justice) contained within Obama’s MANDATE relative to State Subsidies, was NOT acknowledged but Re-interpreted by those ‘Justices’- 2 of whom were appointed by Obama.

-  And remember that OBAMA, the race-peddling bigot, would tell us along with MANY OF HIS LIES, that his ‘ObamaCare’ was NOT A TAX….and in the first argument before the government’s ‘Supreme Court’, they based their decision on the basis it was a TAX WHEN IT WAS NEVER ARGUED ON THAT BASIS DURING THE 3-DAYS in which the States presented their case….BUT Chief Justice Eric Roberts pulled that one out of his backside ( a so-called ‘conservative’ appointed by Bush ) that was the swing vote in a 5-4 decision allowing for this Obamination to continue.

(It should be noted that Roberts was the same ‘justice’, the 2nd time around, who based his decision on an ‘Interpretation’ of what the word State meant relative to the subsidies drawing upon their Illegal 14th Amendment that was passed after their Civil War. Does the phrase ‘Kangaroo’ Court come to mind?)

-  Now if YOU have gotten this far, then you might understand that the 3-former branches of Government within the Former Federal Republic created by the Founding Fathers- NO longer exist as they were originally intended.

Rather, they have become a ‘UNI-BODY’ with each being an extension of the other in order to perpetuate the Orthodoxy and Zealotry brought about by the 2-Party Duopoly that controls this entire ‘Gaming Table’.

The ‘Executive Branch’ (Obama) rules by ‘executive order’ while the ‘Legislative Branch’ (congress and the 2-parties each look the other way) while passing ‘Legislation’ that further underwrites Their Chicanery as the ‘Judicial Branch’ serves as Their Policing Agent to enforce the Socialist Abominations they are creating thru their Appointed District Court Judges that interpret their Supreme Court ‘rulings’ allowing them the province to do what they are doing to us.

-  Remember what Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan (appointed by Obama) said when appointed:

“ I will NOT base any of my decisions on Constitutional Law but rather, ‘Legislative Interpretation’ “.

-  As We Confederates would say, the Net result of this is the ‘Blind leading the Decapitated’.

Now are y’all beginning to ‘Connect the Dots’ and understand why Those People and their Special Interest cronies want our Confederate History “Taken Down”?

This has NOTHING to do with Humanitarianism but everything to do with Cultural & Historical GENOCIDE!

Eliminate ANY connection to our former History & Purpose and They Forge for themselves an Uninterrupted & Unchallenged ‘Run to the End-Zone’.

We are living in a CONTROLLED POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT every bit the SAME as those associated with Fascism, Marxism, Nazism & Communism and y’all think this is NORMAL?

A Blind Man could see this coming!

‘When Push Comes to Shove, You MUST Fight for what You LOVE’…..America once understood that.

SEPARATION IS PARAMOUNT! SEPARATION IS SURVIVAL!

By the Eternal, but We Confederates have Told Y’all So!

Craig Maus,

President, The Confederate Society of America

Will You Join Us Now?

Dear Patriots:

  I will try to be very brief in my commentary:

1)      Blacks killing blacks in most major cities across America APPARENTLY do NOT rise to the SAME LEVEL as 1 madman killing 9 in a church do.

2)      In less than a week, the entire focus has suddenly SHIFTED to our Confederate Flag as being responsible for what occurred in Charleston and being the cause for the rest of the Country’s woes.

3)      Funny how the DemonCRAP Party, with an election coming, has again REVERSED things and raised their clarion banner of Racism once again….this time, but not surprisingly, using our Flag to STOMP on as an excuse to cure the nation’s problems which THEY CREATED!

4)      Running right alongside them is their black constituents in the NAACP.  Their actions, combined with their white counter-parts in State & National government, are the reasons for the conditions affecting EVERYONE today- particularly in the black communities.

5)      Strange how quickly they have mustered petitions and the like to BAN our Confederate Flag once and for all EVERYWHERE as the ‘cure-all’ for what 1 man did in Charleston. They wasted NO time!

6)      Again, what about ALL THE KILLINGS in Chicago- Obama’s home town and ELSEWHERE- & NOT a word spoken about that?

 Need I go on? The Political Narrative associated with their Marxist intentions is staring y’all right in the face.

It has been underway for decades and if y’all think Those People will stop in their attempts to DESTROY anything related to the Confederation- YOU ARE SADLY MISTAKEN.

Y’ALL ARE SEEING THE same thing HAPPENING RIGHT DOWN WITH RESPECT TO THE flag stomping OF THE Stars & Stripes and the SAME EXCUSES for this behavior, are ENTIRELY THE SAME as those that were initially made when all this NONSENSE regarding Southern/Confederate symbols began when the NAACP enacted their Declaration of War (that they called a ‘Resolution) in 1991.

If ANYONE thinks another can be thrown Under the Bus without ramifications and that it will NOT be DONE TO YOU- Y’all better think again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Now let us speak about those on this side of the Mason-Dixon who have conspired with the Washington Demagogues to foster & fertilize this usurpation:

1)      BELOW is how the Virginia SCV Hierarchy TREATS Confederates. SEE how they treated the Virginia Flaggers. They are NO different than ‘National’- hell, there’s that word again- ‘National’!

2)      ALL they are good for is issuing ‘RESOLUTIONS’ (shake hands with the naacp) in condemning any Confederate Organization for standing up and facing the Marxists down who seek our demise while running the other way as has become their nom-de-plume.

3)      The Hierarchy DOESN’T like Alliance’s and suggests that the Virginia Flaggers stand alone & are ‘BY THEMSELVES’ . THIS IS A FALSE NARRATIVE intended to PREVENT ALLIANCES from happening!

4)      This is how they maintain their lofty perches allowing for their self-aggrandizement while passing out ‘Merit Badges’  similar to the way in which Washington continually Mentally Masturbates one another while AmeriCa burns.

5)      They have become the Enemy from Within on this side of the Mason-Dixon.

And this why they have combined with others over the years to STAB OUR Confederate Society in the back because we have constantly called for a CONFEDERATE ALLIANCE among ALL INDEPENDENT ORGANIZATIONS so this INSANITY we are ALL witnessing today could be STOPPED & PREVENTED.  

6)       I would suggest to those SCV Camps that Identify with us that the time has come to SEPARATE from YOUR Washington in Tennessee.

7)      Put your money where it will do good.

Create the Alliance necessary to presume an offensive designed to draw lines in the sand because Those People (SCV Hierarchy) ain’t gonna do it. Like Washington, it is NOT in their interests to do so and all y’all, as evidenced by ‘Past Performance are ever going to get, is more of their KABUKI DANCE & Empty Excuses for Non-Engagement!

Remember how our ancestors did it- SELF RELIANCE!

They didn’t need others to think for THEM.

They THOUGHT for THEMSELVES!

They simply had to be the Stewards and Captions of their Own Ships working in consort with their Brothers and Sisters in their neighboring States and that, One and All, is called a CONFEDERATION!

When are Y’all going to say- Enough is Enough and rise up?

Confederately,

Craig Maus,

President, The Confederate Society of America

We believe in an Alliance consisting of EQUAL Representation whose Mission is Simple- One for All & All for One- the way it once was!

Va Flaggers: Response to the Va Division SCV DEC Resolution

From: info@vaflaggers.com

Va Flaggers Response to the Va Division DEC SCV Resolution Condemning the Virginia Flaggers and the ANV/Mechanized Cavalry

ONWARD

As many of you can imagine, we have been flooded with phone calls, emails, and messages since the Va Division SCV Executive Council released a resolution condemning the Virginia Flaggers, the ANV-Mechanized Cavalry, and “all other organizations purporting to represent Southern History and the Confederate Soldier” late Monday afternoon. We have been absolutely overwhelmed by the outpouring of encouragement, kindness and affirmation we have received, and want to share that we are humbled and thankful for the steadfast support of so many good folks.

It has been suggested that there is something akin to another “civil war” occurring in Virginia, or that the Va Flaggers are constantly at odds with the SCV and other heritage groups. This could not be farther from the truth. The fact of the matter is that we enjoy widespread support across the Commonwealth, and work closely with many SCV Camps and members on heritage defense and Interstate Battle Flag projects, memorials, ceremonies, and educational efforts. The victory last fall in Danville and the 6 roadside flags that have been raised in the Commonwealth over the past 18 months are evidence of successful collaborations with many heritage organizations, and there are many, many more examples... and with God’s grace and protection, many more to come.

This condemnation was the act of a handful of men, and as far as we have been able to ascertain, without any sort of consensus or approval from the general membership.

How are we going to respond? The same way we respond to any other unwarranted attack…by pressing forward and staying focused on what we see as our calling… standing for our Confederate ancestors, and against those who would dishonor their memory and desecrate their flags, memorials and monuments. As far as we are concerned, the condemnation by the Va Division DEC has no effect on us or our work.

The Va Division, SCV leadership has not supported us since we began protesting the Museum of the Confederacy in the spring of 2012. This very public announcement served to let others know what we have known for quite some time, but will otherwise change very little as regards our day to day operations, and does not change our focus or direction. We remain resolute in our determination to continue the good work started, without reference to those who seem intent on creating public strife and division.

We welcome like-minded individuals who wish to join us and/or support our efforts, regardless of other affiliations, and hold no ill will toward those who choose not to.

God bless ALL who, with humble and pure hearts, seek to honor the Confederate soldier, in whatever manner they so choose, and GOD SAVE THE SOUTH!

Confederate - Covenant of Honor

“If Americans wish to preserve a country they will recognize, then the first step is to recognize the enemy. Public education is the enemy. The entertainment industry is the enemy. The corporate culture is the enemy. The advertising industry is the enemy. And most of the politicians in both parties are the enemy. An enemy is defined as anybody, or any organization, which is attacking the traditional beliefs of Americans.”—Charley Reese

­­­Scripture tells us there is nothing new under the Sun. Human nature is the same today as it was in the infancy of the Old Testament. And that includes those who covet power and control, using or abusing every device at their disposal. Thus why we are commanded to be "watchmen" - ever vigilant to be the clarion call against evildoers. Our duty is to deny their advancement to protect life and liberty.

The past century has produced the most significant political, economic, and cultural changes in our history. Unfortunately, worthy progression in select areas has been overshadowed by transgression in too many others. The masses are gradually being institutionalized from Judeo-Christian values. They were first lured by compromise, which opened the door of forced tolerance and political correctness. Now they are conformist and don't realize it, which is a shame because even a dead fish can go with the flow.

A conformed society is a contaminated society, where good is oppressed while evil is exalted. Every institution is infected by this radical subculture who dismiss all rational thought and incontrovertible truth. This is especially true regarding vocabulary, as words are redefined or persecuted.

One particular target of unrelenting torment is the term Confederate, to include Confederacy and Confederation. As arguably one of the oldest and respected words in human history, Confederate has been systematically demonized and thus made a pariah in today's societal language. Even the most vile four-letter words draw less attention and scorn.

Confederate is not a Southern concept or even a Founding Father's principle. Its origins go back to the beginning, starting in Genesis 14. One can easily draw a parallel to the current conditions in our country. For those who recall scripture, this is where Abram rescues his nephew Lot from his captures.

Because Lot coveted the fruits of Sodom while ignoring its wickedness, he and his goods were subdued by the Chaldean and Persian invaders who had vengeance to all descendants of Canaan. Though Lot was righteous, he tried to thrive among evil and thus succumbed to their will. Honorable men do not live among the wicked, but instead separate from their evil because discernment and wisdom compel us.

Verse 13 reads: And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.

This tells us a few things. First, we see Abram's knowledge as to Lot's dilemma. And to free Lot, Abram is confederate, or forms an alliance, with these other men. This is Abrams only account of military action, taken only as a rescue measure and not goaded by personal ambitions.

Taking his trained servants who understood both the art of war and Godly principles, Abram freed Lot and brought back all the subjugated people and their  goods from the evil rulers.

Even more important to note is what follows. All glory is given to God for deliverance, and tribute through tithe for his grace. But Abram has one more hurdle, the King of Sodom. The king wants the people yet sets the spoils for Abram. Abram knows the king is political, and senses a "quid pro quo" should he take anything. He instead refuses, lifting up his hands only for God's mercy and rewards. But Abram does acknowledge the independence and sovereignty of Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre by letting them decide for themselves if they want possessions or not.

This is the true nature of being Confederate and being part of a Confederation. It is an alliance with like-minded individuals or groups while respecting their independence and sovereignty. It is a Biblically-based virtue ordained by God, not some moniker conjured up by irascibles looking for trouble.  

The question now is, in this era dominated by evildoing Marxist, are you truly a Confederate or a dead fish going with the flow? Do you feel like a lone voice in the wilderness, craving righteous alliances to repel their continued invasion and restore our culture? Do you believe in independence and sovereignty? Do you believe in sacrifice? Just as important, are you involved with institutions that claim to be Confederate but refuse independence and sovereignty within? Is your "Confederate" institution controlled by self-aggrandizing politicians who resort to threats and intimidation to force your compliance while refusing to really engage the enemy? Have they eliminated sacrifice as a beloved virtue and necessary component against cultural genocide? Has your "Confederate" institution been so hijacked and redefined that it has been "fundamentally transformed" from resolute to retreat? Does your "Confederate" group actually operate as a benevolent dictatorship, trampling traditional beliefs? Do you anguish to separate from petty, yet tyrannical politics?

If so, this is a clarion call to all Confederates - men, women, and our youth - who feel abandoned and disenfranchised. You do have a choice. You can continue your membership as herded sheep within your faux "Confederate" institution or you can free yourselves from their centralized, hypocritical chains. You can stay immersed in their never-ending, narcissistic political campaigning to fill an empty-suit seat or you can separate and become part of a real alliance whose only "campaign" is to deny the enemy our culture.

The choice is yours.

Confederately,

Jimmy Ward

Dear Patriots:

On behalf of The Confederate Society of America, let me say that we feel and identify with the loss and pain resulting from this tragedy.

Words cannot, in any way, ease the pain resulting from the wanton and unnecessary killings that should have NEVER been.
America today is NOT a ‘United’ country.

It is a ‘Polarized’ country and it has been made that way, as this Confederate Society has stated, by design resulting from a Political Transformation that now has many, unfortunately, at one another’s throats.

Race relations were far better 50 years ago than they are today and in order to understand what is going on in this Country- EVERYONE- Black, White, Brown, Yellow and Red needs to take a ‘time out’ & come to grips with what has been DONE TO US ALL thanks to an on-going plethora of  Washington Plebiscite’s that have all combined to cast a wide net of Socialization in whose interests serve NOT THE PEOPLE-  but the Government Overseers who have made ‘slaves of us all’.

As a result and as evidenced by what We Confederates have described as ‘Conquered Territories’ today, most Major Cities throughout the US today are ‘Harbinger Ports of Dependency’ who can NO longer operate in of themselves without Government Funding and thus, Government Control & Interference.

These ‘Ports of Dependency’ have resulted in Destitution, Depravity and Hopelessness replacing what were once solvent & thriving communities.

THIS IS FACT and further Denial of these conditions will only contribute to more ‘Charleston’s’ as evidenced by the maniacal society Washington has created in which Societal Identity & Responsibility have been replaced with Socialized ‘mechanisms’ allowing for EXCUSES resulting in Irresponsible & Deadly behavior.
The ultimate ‘LEVY’ is the Calamity & Friction being witnessed throughout America today.

Dependency & Entitlement are Cancerous Roots that do NOT HELP ANYONE!

They simply combine to advance the Seeds of Despair resulting in ‘challenged minds’ to become statistical casualties who act out their frustration resulting from an Orthodoxy of Political Zealotry.

WE CONFEDERATES immediately KNEW that the FIRST THING that would be coming out of the mouths of these Political Demagogues, who run & rule this country today resulting from the tragedy in Charleston, would be to further Their Socialized/Marxist Policies by politicizing this tragic occurrence.

As they have stated so many times before:  NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE!” and the FIRST THING out of Obama’s mouth along with Clinton was GUN CONTROL with their Lame Street Media blaming the Confederate Flag in Columbia for what occurred in Charleston.

“ NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE!”

“Those People”, and again as General Lee so appropriately described them, will use ANYTHING & ANYONE to sanctify their Political Positions & accompanying Ideology in order to perpetuate & extend their Power Base over us ALL- Black, White, Brown, Yellow & Red as noted.

Charleston and OTHER unfortunate tragedies are the DIRECT RESULT stemming from an out of control Central-National Government who, along with their Special Interest cronies, WANT IT ALL and will continue to USE ALL to advance Their Body Politic.

We Confederates will state again that the ONLY  SOLUTION to avoid more Charleston’s in the future- is to Go Back to the former Republic’s Origin, as it WAS INTENDED & DESIGNED by the Founding Fathers, and Return to the States their Lawful and Independent Sovereignty that was TAKEN & STOLEN from them.

Let the States become the Captains of their Own Ships once again wherein THEY CAN CONTROL THEIR OWN ECONOMICS & POLITICS that will allow them to SERVE ALL EQUALLY;  resulting in Real Hope and Change allowing for a Quality of Education that was once second to none when the States were Sovereign & NOT ridden with the Politics associated with a ‘ONE BRUSH FITS ALL’ Nationalized Policy that the Cesspool on the Potomac has since visited upon us beginning in 1865.

Blaming GUNS and Our Confederate Flag for what happened is RIDICULOUS!

It speaks to the Obvious Evil & Chicanery associated with an Ominous Ideology that occupies Washington today!

And until EVERYONE comes to grips with what has been DONE TO US ALL, we will ALL continue to reap what “Those People” in Washington have sewn for us over the last 150 years.

We CONFEDERATES have the answer to AVOID MORE CHARLESTONS - Let us GO OUR WAY and Let those who want to FOLLOW WASHINGTON GO THEIR WAY!

As the letter below attests, WE WILL, within a Short Period of time, “BECOME AN ECONOMIC POWER HOUSE RESULTING FROM THE UN-SCHAKELING OF OUR PEOPLE OF ALL COLORS”…
because who knows Best-

Washington or We the People within Each of Our Former Sovereign States?

Only through SEPARATION can we ever again expect to become what we once were!

SEPARATION IS SURVIVAL!  SEPARATION IS PARAMOUNT!

Craig Maus,

President, The Confederate Society of America

And remember, this FLAG NEVER WANTONLY killed anyone- It was RAISED in SELF-DEFENSE in order to PREVENT ALL THAT IS HAPPENING & OCCURRING ACROSS AMERICA TODAY FROM EVER HAPPENING… thanks to the resulting ‘ONE-SIZE’ fits ALL Political Dogma that the 2-Party Duopoly has created allowing for a POLARIZATION whose intentions always were to Play ALL off of EACH other allowing for the FEW to realize and extend their own self-worth & positions of POWER at the expense of the Greater Whole.

To Divide is to Conquer!

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

  TO ALL Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, Marxists, et al. (aka Libs):

We're done. We want a divorce.
We have tried to live & work with you in good faith but this isn't working out very well.

You hate us, we can't stand you, so lets just go our separate ways and live in peace.

You preach “tolerance & mutual coexistence” when, in fact, you are the most intolerant, contemptuous, rabid, fanatical, unbending bunch on the face of the planet. You spit in God's face and shake an angry fist at Him and yet, you say, “He doesn't exist.”

Our two ideologies cannot coexist. One will always seek to destroy the other. You call us archaic, haters, bigots, homophobes, racists, Nazis and every other foul epithet you can hurl at us when, in fact, you are deflecting from what you really are: Leftist Tyrants (with a capital T)

We'll keep our Freedom, our guns, our Bibles, good ol' Common Sense, Family Values, the Boy Scouts, the Constitution with Its' Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence. (apparently you don't like those dusty old fashioned things anyway) We get the "Red States" and we'll rename our Country “The Confederation of Sovereign States of America” (CSSA)

You can have the Nanny State, Constitution free zones (whatever the hell THAT means), Moral Relativism, Situational Ethics, Values Clarification, the Homosexual & LGBT Agenda, and all the taxes you can levy so you can create the Liberal Utopia you've always fantasized about. Your so called “intellectuals” can mentally masturbate each other freely in your finest universities of "higher- learning.” You get the "Blue States" and you can rename your Country “The Union of Socialist States of America” (USSA)

We grow weary of you trying to remove the Almighty from every aspect of public life and
beating down everything that is upright, decent, moral and good. You demonize Christians and traditional Jews and yet cozy up to, and placate, radical Islam.

We are fed-up with you calling evil "good" and good "evil"

We are vexed with the indoctrination centers you call “public schools” Your best and brightest college students cannot pass an eighth grade exam from a hundred years ago.

We are sick of the trash that comes out of the sewer pipe in Hollywood that you call "art" and don't even get me started on that “gangsta” crap you call music. That nonsense belongs in prison.

We are disgusted with the way you have shredded the Constitution and ignored Natural Law while replacing them with corruption and immorality, putting narcissistic, arrogant people in charge and calling that “leadership” while making this once great nation the laughing stock of the world.

We are abhorred and appalled at the wanton destruction of unborn and partially born children since Roe vs Wade. For this alone you will answer and stand before the Creator and bring severe judgment upon yourselves. Sacrificing children on the altar of “reason and political correctness.” To put it in the very indelicate vernacular, Just a “choice” my ass. It's murder.

We are bone-tired of you castigating our heroes and men of honor like General Robert E Lee, whom in the words of former President Dwight Eisenhower said:

"General Robert E. Lee was, in my estimation, one of the supremely gifted men produced by our Nation. He believed unswervingly in the Constitutional validity of his cause which until 1865 was still an arguable question in America; he was thoughtful yet demanding of his officers and men, forbearing with captured enemies but ingenious, unrelenting and personally courageous in battle, and never disheartened by a reverse or obstacle. Through all his many trials, he remained selfless almost to a fault and unfailing in his belief in God. Taken altogether, he was noble as a leader and as a man, and unsullied as I read the pages of our history..."

You can re-write and revise your own history and spin it any way you want. You get to keep your heroes like Saul Alinsky, Karl Marx, John Brown, Jane Fonda, Barney Frank, Yasser Arafat and every other miscreant, demagogue and thug you can think of. Moreover, you can give these folks all the awards & accolades you want. Hell, you can even grant them sainthood for all we care

You have traded our heritage, our liberty, our freedom and our inheritance for political correctness, the “right” of a few sexual deviants to “get married” and for a handful of food-stamps, enslaving us on your "Federal" plantation.

You want to force your twisted views on the rest of us with the threat of crushing law suits and soon the barrel of a gun. No way are we putting up with this anymore. We've had enough.

In less than two or three decades, we'll become an economic power house by unshackling the potential of our people while your country will wind up, debt ridden, rotted from the inside out, upon the ash heap of history.

Holy crap! Talk about “irreconcilable differences.”

No hard feelings Libs, but we need to call it quits and go our separate ways. Learn from history. Let's avoid all of the violence and bloodshed. Separation is the only viable alternative.

We just want to live our lives, worship the Creator Who gave us our inalienable rights, provide for our families, govern ourselves, and be left the hell alone.

Sic Semper Tyrannis

Deo Vindice,

Mark Motto, Board-member of the Confederate Society of America

Secession & State Sovereignty are not dirty words

Another big flap over the Battle Flag. We have a repeat performance like so many that have gone on before. A white youngster kills a bunch of black folks in a church in Charleston, South Carolina and is photographed on the Internet with a Confederate flag in his hand and we are off to the races once again. This so much resembles some of the false flag events that have taken place over the past couple years that I really have to wonder. In this case the Marxist crowd gets to campaign against two of their adversaries, the Confederate flag and guns.

I looked at the picture of this kid on the Internet with the flag in his hand. Pardon me for saying so, but he really looked whacked out. He held the flag like someone had just shoved it into his hand and he wasn’t quite sure what to do with it. It was a tremendous photo op for the left.

And now, in typical Yankee/Marxist “reasoning” its the fault of that nasty Confederate flag that he did what he did. If we are to believe the “news” media it was the flag that caused him to go out and kill those black folks, therefore the flag must come down immediately if not sooner  (yesterday would have been better) and on and on it goes. The folks that follow this stuff know the drill by now. Another shooting done in a gun-free zone where it was already against the law to have a firearm, and still our Marxist-in-Chief calls for more gun control. One difference was that they got this kid alive where most shooters have turned up dead in the past few years. They may have propaganda plans for him.

Now no one in their right mind condones this sort of thing, but, as usual, the media is tugging at people’s emotional heart strings to get the desired reaction. To show how much emotional manipulation is going on with this, I saw a photo of a lady carrying a sign that said “My great great grandfather fought for the Confederacy but the flag needs to come down.” The results of 150 years of government school indoctrination!

What surprised me, and it shouldn’t have, I guess, was how just about all the politicians in both of our major socialist parties lined up to denounce the flag, from the governor of South Carolina right on down the line. They couldn’t get in line fast enough to say a bad word about the Confederate flag. And I fully expect, before we are done, that just about all the presidential candidates in both socialist parties will jump on board, fighting over who will be first in line to shout for the flag to come down.

It shouldn’t have surprised me that all these politicians (no statesmen here) were really just hollow shells, gutless wonders,  who are here to collect the votes that will help them to feed at the public trough, but when a really serious issue comes along, their honor and integrity melt fast than hot butter in July. They parrot the line their handlers have made up for them about the flag only representing “racism” and slavery and they honestly expect people to embrace this garbage because they have. And many will. But anyone who takes the time and effort to look at and study these rank political types will eventually realize that they are all hat and no cattle, that they are quite selective in their condemnation, and that, above all, as I said earlier, they are only out for the votes–no matter what they have to say or do to get them.

Therefore, it shouldn’t really surprise us that the Republicans are lining up to defame the flag. After all, that’s only  a repeat performance of what they did in the 1860s, in case anyone has forgotten. “Lincoln’s Marxists” are still alive and well in Washington and most of our state capitals, North and South. They never really crawled back under their collectivist rocks, they only pretended to.

And Now I have been informed that the Marxist crowd is planning the same game for the Mississippi state flag. Sixty-four percent of the folks in Mississippi voted to keep their present state flag several years ago, but now, some of the Republican leadership there have decided that the state flag will have to go. So you folks in Mississippi had best start to get ready for what’s going on now in South Carolina, because you are going to get it in one form or another soon. The Marxist crowd in South Carolina is close enough to victory that they can smell Southern blood–and they want more!

As hard as it has been over the years (one Southerner said getting Southern folks to work together was like herding cats) the various Confederate and Southern heritage groups will, quite possibly, have to learn to work together on this issue. Various left-wing groups hate each other’s guts and yet they do manage to work together on issues critical to the leftist agenda. Maybe we should take a lesson from that. I would think that the planned cultural genocide campaign against us that is looming just over the horizon is important enough to the preservation of our future in the South that we should be willing to help one another out, at least on this one issue. Cultural genocide will kill all of our groups and our culture in general.

So just maybe we ought to consider helping one another out as we are able in this instance, because we will receive no help whatever from those gutless wonders we have put into office. They have now become the “useful idiots” of the political left.

Confederate - Covenant of Honor

“If Americans wish to preserve a country they will recognize, then the first step is to recognize the enemy. Public education is the enemy. The entertainment industry is the enemy. The corporate culture is the enemy. The advertising industry is the enemy. And most of the politicians in both parties are the enemy. An enemy is defined as anybody, or any organization, which is attacking the traditional beliefs of Americans.”—Charley Reese

­­­Scripture tells us there is nothing new under the Sun. Human nature is the same today as it was in the infancy of the Old Testament. And that includes those who covet power and control, using or abusing every device at their disposal. Thus why we are commanded to be "watchmen" - ever vigilant to be the clarion call against evildoers. Our duty is to deny their advancement to protect life and liberty.

The past century has produced the most significant political, economic, and cultural changes in our history. Unfortunately, worthy progression in select areas has been overshadowed by transgression in too many others. The masses are gradually being institutionalized from Judeo-Christian values. They were first lured by compromise, which opened the door of forced tolerance and political correctness. Now they are conformist and don't realize it, which is a shame because even a dead fish can go with the flow.

A conformed society is a contaminated society, where good is oppressed while evil is exalted. Every institution is infected by this radical subculture who dismiss all rational thought and incontrovertible truth. This is especially true regarding vocabulary, as words are redefined or persecuted.

One particular target of unrelenting torment is the term Confederate, to include Confederacy and Confederation. As arguably one of the oldest and respected words in human history, Confederate has been systematically demonized and thus made a pariah in today's societal language. Even the most vile four-letter words draw less attention and scorn.

Confederate is not a Southern concept or even a Founding Father's principle. Its origins go back to the beginning, starting in Genesis 14. One can easily draw a parallel to the current conditions in our country. For those who recall scripture, this is where Abram rescues his nephew Lot from his captures.

Because Lot coveted the fruits of Sodom while ignoring its wickedness, he and his goods were subdued by the Chaldean and Persian invaders who had vengeance to all descendants of Canaan. Though Lot was righteous, he tried to thrive among evil and thus succumbed to their will. Honorable men do not live among the wicked, but instead separate from their evil because discernment and wisdom compel us.

Verse 13 reads: And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram.

This tells us a few things. First, we see Abram's knowledge as to Lot's dilemma. And to free Lot, Abram is confederate, and forms an alliance with these other men. This is Abrams only account of military action, taken only as a rescue measure and not goaded by personal ambitions.

Taking his trained servants who understood both the art of war and Godly principles, Abram freed Lot and brought back all the subjugated people and their  goods from the evil rulers.

Even more important to note is what follows. All glory is given to God for deliverance, and tribute through tithe for his grace. But Abram has one more hurdle, the King of Sodom. The king wants the people yet sets the spoils for Abram. Abram knows the king is political, and senses a "quid pro quo" should he take anything. He instead refuses, lifting up his hands only for God's mercy and rewards. But Abram does acknowledge the independence and sovereignty of Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre by letting them decide for themselves if they want possessions or not.

This is the true nature of being Confederate and being part of a Confederation. It is an alliance with like-minded individuals or groups while respecting their independence and sovereignty. It is a Biblically-based virtue ordained by God, not some moniker conjured up by irascibles looking for trouble.  

The question now is, in this era dominated by evildoing Marxists, are you truly a Confederate or a dead fish going with the flow? Do you feel like a lone voice in the wilderness, craving righteous alliances to repel their continued invasion and restore our culture? Do you believe in independence and sovereignty? Do you believe in sacrifice?

Just as important, are you involved with institutions that claim to be Confederate but refuse independence and sovereignty within? Is your "Confederate" institution controlled by self-aggrandizing politicians who resort to threats and intimidation to force your compliance while refusing to really engage the enemy? Have they eliminated sacrifice as a beloved virtue and necessary component against cultural genocide? Has your "Confederate" institution been so hijacked and redefined that it has been "fundamentally transformed" from resolute to retreat? Does your "Confederate" group actually operate as a benevolent dictatorship, trampling traditional beliefs?

Do you anguish to separate from petty, yet tyrannical politics?

If so, this is a clarion call to all Confederates - men, women, and our youth - who feel abandoned and disenfranchised. You do have a choice. You can continue your membership as herded sheep within your faux "Confederate" institution or you can free yourselves from their centralized, hypocritical chains. You can stay immersed in their never-ending, narcissistic political campaigning to fill an empty-suit seat or you can separate and become part of a real alliance whose only "campaign" is to deny the enemy our culture.

The choice is yours.

Confederately,

Jimmy Ward

......and from Craig Maus:

I am reminded of the simplicity associated with Our Beloved General, Nathan Bedford Forrest, whose Military Genius is ‘quietly’ but always studied by those in the Military Colleges of War such as West Point.

Do YOU think he would tolerate the NONSENSE being exhibited by ‘those’ on this side of the Mason-Dixon if he were here today? Remember his ‘simple’ Military Philosophy?

“It is NOT my intention to take ground and hold it….it is my intention to DENY IT TO THE ENEMY SO IT CAN NEVER AGAIN BE CROSSED! Never Stand and Take a Charge…Charge Them To!”

                                                                                        General Nathan Bedford Forrest


PS- Who do YOU think ‘represents you today?

The Braxton Bragg’s or the Nathan Bedford Forrest’s.

Who do YOU want representing YOU is a better question?

Dear Patriots, (particularly you Texians):

I would ask that y’all pay careful attention regarding that which I, as President of The Confederate Society of America, is about to say.

The Society will be issuing more details in the days ahead regarding this matter as we have been researching it for some time.

This is another of those ‘DOTS’ of History that have been withheld from YOU, and for ALL the obvious reasons many are just coming to understand, as they relate to a much larger picture!

Texas however, like it’s size, is probably one of the Largest ‘Dots’ as it relates to the Confederate States of America.

Now kindly follow CLOSELY:

1) The Republic of Texas, let me say that AGAIN, the REPUBLIC of Texas was an INDEPENDENT COUNTRY from 1836 thru 1845.

2) However, on *February 28, 1845, the U.S. Congress passed a ‘Bill’ that authorized the ANNEXATION of Texas.

Faced with Imminent American Annexation, Charles Elliot & Alphonse de Saligny, the British & French ministers to Texas, were dispatched to Mexico City by England & France.

They met with Mexico’s Foreign Secretary AND SIGNED a Diplomatic Act in which Mexico offered to recognize an INDEPENDENT TEXAS.

Texas President Anson Jones forwarded both proposals (America’s- if you were to call it that, & Mexico’s) to a specially ‘elected commission’ that was meeting in Austin where the ‘American Proposal was ‘accepted’.

NOTE: The Mexican Proposal was NEVER, NEVER, put to a vote. (Beginning to ‘Connect the Dot(s) as Secession was only 15 years away and things in America itself, at this time, were growing steadily DARKER. This is part of that SAME PERIOD that Our Confederate Society has told y’all about that is MOST IMPORTANT as IT, this entire time period between 1808 thru 1860, HAS BEEN TOTALLY ERASED FROM THE History Books along with just about everything else)

3)  Now UNDERSTAND what followed:

Following the ‘Acceptance Offer of the American Proposal’ (HA!), said proposal was put to a ‘Vote’ throughout the Republic (of Texas) on OCTOBER 13, 1845.

NOTE: To our knowledge,  there is NO RECORD of the number of people who supposedly ‘voted’. (MORE ‘Dot’ Connecting.)

4)      *Now try this ‘Dot’ on for size- On December 29, 1845, the SAME DAY ANNEXATION was to take place, Texas became a ‘State’.

5)      Now here is where ‘things’ get even murkier during a time when there was increasing & growing unrest surrounding ‘Washington’.

The COMPROMISE of 1850 gave Texas 10 million dollars in Federal Bonds to DROP CLAIMS TO THOSE Territories which included parts of Present-Day Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Wyoming.

We will have MORE information regarding this COMPROMISE of 1850 and its contents in ensuing communiques because what was contained in it, will BLOW YOUR MIND.

This and MORE is just the ‘Tip of the IceBerg’ and why Washington to this day, ‘dances’ about TEXAS very ‘gingerly’.

WHERE ARE WE GOING WITH THIS YOU MIGHT ASK?

Let us say for the time being, and I do NOT pretend to be an attorney- but if a Smart Attorney were to ‘Inter-Connect these ‘DOTS’ and the manner in which they, shall we say, were undertaken, PANDORA’S BOX not only could be opened, BUT would be OPENED!

 Now let me pose this question to Y’all regarding the manner in which ALL THIS UNFOLDED- particularly with respect to those ‘supposed’ voters who approved the ‘American proposal’ in October, 1845-
THEN WHY WOULD TEXAS JOIN THE CONFEDERACY ONLY 16 YEARS LATER AND WITH THE UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN AUSTIN & MONTGOMERY (The Confederacy’s capitol at the time before Richmond), that NOT only would Texas be part of the CONFEDERATION, but with the UNDERSTANDING THAT IT WOULD COME IN AS & be recognized as :

AN INDEPENDENT REPUBLIC!

Now doesn’t this suggest that what occurred PRIOR, as noted above, STUNK, and did NOT have the APPROVAL of the Texians as they were called as it has been made out to be?

In conclusion, and on a somewhat separate subject but related given the fact that current events is running IDENTICAL to those times that preceded us as noted herein- BeWare of ‘Greeks bearing Gifts’ and I am referring to anyone in your SCV Leadership that claims YOUR CAMPS should NOT, repeat NOT, have Autonomy….or make continuing excuses for interpreting the PLEDGE given to us by our Confederate ancestors.

Our Confederate Society, like the Texas Republic herself, believes in INDIVIDUAL DECISIONS and SOVEREIGNTY.

Who better UNDERSTANDS Their Territory than the local Camp Commanders & Folks?

Y’all need, like the SCV everywhere, to be the Captains of YOUR Own Ships!

Once YOU Lose the Sanctity of that Independence and become GO-FERS for a more ‘senior & privileged’ system of ‘Faces’- you become subservient to a SYSTEM interpreted and enacted only by them.

They BECOME THE Interpreter’s for ALL ‘SENSITIVE’ ISSUES and thus Policies are derived from their Unilateral decisions.

This does NOT bode well for your Individual Identity & Sovereignty.

And, as History has shown us all, what follows is APPEASEMENT & COMPROMISE in the name of ‘Fairness’ that underwrites NOT our Ideology but that of others intent on our DESTRUCTION!

The ‘DOTS’ of America’s Original Republic were always based upon LIMITED, repeat- LIMITED control with the entity of the SOVERIGN ALWAYS BEING IN COMMAND.

Once you give UP that ‘Basic’, all else becomes an uphill battle to get it BACK!

Beware of the ‘Role-Reverses’ and do NOT ‘Cede’ your Independence to ANYONE!

Thus Texas is a ‘Cornerstone Dot’ towards SEPARATION- ALWAYS HAS BEEN!

Beware of those who talk of Secession but do NOTHING to even advance it IN OF ITSELF but remember this: Our Confederacy NEVER SURRENDERED!

Thus IT remains in a STATE OF SECESSION needing NOT to do it again but merely SEPARATING from Those same People who ‘Annexed’ us ALL in ONE FORM OR ANOTHER….  resulting, ultimately, in an UN-DECLARED WAR in 1860 that was intended to accomplish the very Same Thing that we ALL Fought to Prevent in 1776 and at the Alamo in 1836- the Loss of our Freedoms & Liberties!

 13 Colonies; 13 Confederate States; 13 days at the Alamo and above ALL-Jesus and His 12 Disciples- 13 !
SEPARATION IS SURVIVAL!

SEPARATION IS PARAMOUNT!

‘Countries that are NOT aware of their Origin are like Ships without Rudders- Sooner or Later they will be Destroyed on the Reef of Stupidity because of OTHERS’

Craig Maus,

President, The Confederate Society of America

Recently a friend lent me an informative book called Death by Journalism? written by Jerry Bledsoe. This is not a new book. It was published back in 2002 but as we were in the process of getting ready to move to Louisiana at that time, I never got to see it.

Reading it now, even though I am familiar with some of what it dealt with is still a shock. It displays the almost utter moral depravity of what we continue to call the news media. We should long ago have dropped that euphemism and realized that real news is the last thing those people are all about. It was informative to watch how the “news” media people in this book operated, in that I have seen them do the exact same thing in other areas. To label them the “prostitute press” would either be a compliment to them or an insult to prostitutes.

The book is about some folks in an SCV camp in North Carolina that sought to present the truth about the War of Northern Aggression to an adult  class at the Archdale satellite of Randolph Community College. The class was called “North Carolina History: Our Role  in the War for Southern Independence.” It cost $40 to sign up for the class, which amount paid for the entire course. It was not mandatory; it cost the college and the taxpayers nothing and it was not presented for the students at the college.

The man who started the class, Jack Perdue, said of the SCV: “We are a heritage organization. We are not a hate group and will not knowingly accept members who belong to hate groups. Blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans served honorably in Confederate service and their descendents are welcome in the SCV.” And then he said something that most people today choose to forget. He said “It is important that we try to look at this subject from the viewpoint of the eighteen-sixties and not from the dawn of the twenty-first century.  It’s easy to say with twenty-twenty hindsight  that a lot of what went on back then was wrong. But you need to look at what went on back then from the times back then and not judge what people did in the eighteen hundreds by the way we live now…” Yet when it came to the “news” media, they totally ignored that admonition—as expected. After all they had an agenda—the cultural destruction of Southern heritage and culture—and nothing, but nothing, could be allowed to get in the way of that, least of all the truth!

Once the class started it was not long before it was visited by a hostile reporter. I’m not sure I even want to dignify him by giving his name. He wrote a series of horrible articles about the class but hadn’t bothered to attend the class sessions. So you wonder where he got his information. He wrote in his articles that the class taught that slaves in North Carolina were happy and content with their lot—only problem is, that was not what went on during the class sessions. Nothing like that was ever said in the class sessions, which were all taped, but that little problem didn’t bother the reporter—he just fabricated the dialogue he wished had taken place in the class and reported it in his articles as fact. The people who put on the class sessions tried to explain to him what it was all about. He wasn’t interested. He couldn’t have cared less.  Again, truth could not be allowed to get in the way of the leftist agenda.

When he talked with someone in the class and asked them questions, the fact that he had a preconceived agenda was openly apparent.  The lady he talked with said: “I knew right from the first question that the man was trying to create a controversy, it was the way he asked it.  I knew he was fishing for something, anything he could find to create what he wanted.” Another person he questioned noted that: “Every question had to do with slavery, it was the only issue of the Civil War he wanted to talk about…Nothing we tried to say to him seemed to make any impression. We were trying to tell him how much we’d learned about the role of North Carolina in the war.  It was like he would briefly listen to what we were saying, then go right back to the same thing. I didn’t feel he was there to find out what the class was about. He had some kind of agenda. He certainly didn’t want the information I was trying to convey to him.” You are right. He didn’t. He had no interest in that. He had no intention of conveying any truth about the class to anyone who read his diatribes.

And what was worse, his editor back at the paper he worked for defended all his inaccuracies as truth and the paper as a whole defended all this. They never retreated from that position. Much like the global warming crowd today, when they are presented with the truth of how they have fudged the figures to come up with their preconceived conclusions they pay no attention. They just continue on with their charade (agenda).

This “reporter” if you can even call him that, operated much like other leftist luminaries I have seen in the media. Several years ago now, my wife and I attended a Confederate Alliance Conference, sponsored by the Confederate Society of America, in Charleston, South Carolina. After the first day of speeches a couple people from the local “news” media ambled in and started to talk to the man who had organized the conference. As expected, they quickly brought up the race issue (nothing like playing the race card early). The man they were interviewing told them explicitly that race had nothing to do with what we were there for; that  people like the KKK and skinheads were not welcome at our conference and that we wanted nothing to do with that sort of thing. They asked him a couple more questions and then came back to the race issue. He told them again that race was not an issue there. Again they backed off and a couple questions later they tried to introduce it yet again. They couldn’t afford to leave the race issue alone because they were not really there to write about what had actually transpired—they were there to make everybody look like a group of closet Klansmen. That was their agenda, their only agenda. When they couldn’t come up with anything in that area they issued a story that was chock full of innuendo—but no real facts.

On page 231 of the book Mr. Bledsoe pointed out that the newspaper, the News and Record was not interested in fairness or truth. The SCV was the intended victim of what I and others call Cultural Genocide, presented under the false cover of “fighting racism.” The editors had to approve all this tripe and they did.

Another lady in the class said of the “news” media “They wouldn’t listen no matter what you said. They didn’t want to hear the truth. They were going to make it the way they wanted it and that was that.” You’ve got that right lady. Like good little Marxists, the news media today has an agenda and that is what they will present—no matter what, particularly when it comes to Confederate or Southern heritage and culture.

Southern Christian culture is slated for destruction by those people. It’s about time their intended victims woke up and read the handwriting on the wall—which you can believe—as long as someone in the “news” media didn’t write it!

Editors note: This is a sad story about your history that the public school system forgot, or neglected, to teach to you as a child. Unfortunately, it is a tale of a criminal government, who after conquering a foe on the battlefield, had decided to impose its will on an unwilling populace in direct conflict and violation of their own constitution. 

The 14th amendment was a sham, as was the 17th many years later, extorted by and forced unto States into compliance. A Confederate would ask why comply in the first place, but alas we have no representation within their government, still don't. 
So in the end, we get to watch the slow motion decay and collapse of an America that we could have well participated in and given an alternative to.

 The wretchedness of what has taken hold of America, the modern day Socialist Liberal agenda that wishes to eviscerate all knowledge and form of Confederate history, had poisoned the open minded and young people away from our cause, a cause that was righteous and vindicating from its origin in that very Constitution that they wish to uphold and to mold and modify into  a  compliance with their political purpose .

Principled and thoughtful legislative law is the indispensable tool of a just and orderly society. Like all good and necessary tools of government, however, unless kept within the bounds of sound reason and just moral principles, law can become tyranny. Laws must be fair, and because consistency is an important factor in fairness, good laws must consider the precedence set by past laws, judicial rulings, and enforcement. Good laws must also carefully consider the immediate and future consequences for society as a whole.  Good law must not favor one industry, region, or class of people over others. Societies cannot provide the order, security, and justice necessary to thrive unless truth is highly regarded and its laws are respected. This is especially true of Articles and Amendments to Constitutional law.

Good law is an enormous blessing to society, but bad law is an evil that can continue to inflict and multiply folly, injustice, and tyranny on a people for generations. The Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, effective July 9, 1868, using villainous manipulations of parliamentary process, duress against States, and other egregious violations of Article 5 of the Constitution governing amendments to the Constitution. While not every line, phrase, or intent of the Amendment is evil or useless, the despotic and unlawful methods of its passage and the heavy influence of vengeance, greed, crookedness, and conniving for partisan political power should be enough to demand its invalidation. It is extremely important that our legislators and our people honor the Constitution, but as the reader will learn, many of the motives and the dishonest and unlawful methods surrounding “ratification” of the Fourteenth Amendment were disgraceful and completely contradictory to the ideals of just and limited government envisioned by the framers of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights embodied in the first ten amendments, and the Declaration of Independence. It should not be surprising that the Fourteenth Amendment has been a primary tool for Federal tyranny against the States and the people.  

One destructive legacy of the Fourteenth Amendment has been “birthright citizenship,” currently interpreted as giving automatic citizenship to more than 300,000 children of illegal immigrant parents every year. We may be the last country in the world that tolerates such abuse of our immigration system, social-welfare programs, and taxpayers.

However, the worst thing about the Fourteenth Amendment is that it essentially turned the U.S. Constitution upside-down. Whereas the first Ten Amendments of the Bill of Rights limit the powers of Congress and the Federal government and defend the Rights of the States and the people against potential Federal tyranny, the Fourteenth Amendment effectively expanded Federal Power over the States and the people, making the Federal Government the dangerous arbitrator of its own power and that of the States and the people. At least four of nine Supreme Court Justices and many Federal District Judges see the Fourteenth Amendment as their authority to overturn state legislatures and public referendums protecting the institution of marriage. This would yield bitter fruit—the further destruction of the family as a mainstay and stabilizer of American society.

 Following the great tragedy of the “Civil War” and the assassination of President Lincoln in April of 1865, national leadership was largely in the hands of a Congress dominated by the Radical Republicans. They undermined the new President, Andrew Johnson, at every opportunity, and had little regard for the Supreme Court. They considered the Constitution to be an inconvenience and the Supreme Court to be an annoyance to the will of the people accomplished by Congress.  States Rights, having been defeated by the coercion of bayonets, were no longer an effective check on Federal power. 

The Radical Republican hard core in Congress numbered only about thirty of some 230 Northern Senators and Representatives, but their influence was very powerful, and they had strong and widespread support in the Northern press. Five men exercised dominant leadership:  Thaddeus Stevens, Representative from Pennsylvania; Benjamin Butler, Representative from Massachusetts; Charles Sumner, Senator from Massachusetts; Benjamin Wade, Senator from Ohio; and Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton.

President Johnson planned to follow Lincoln’s relatively benign plan for establishing loyal civil governments in the South and restoring them to the national family.  Pursuant to this on May 29, 1865, he declared an amnesty for most Confederate veterans.  By the middle of July, many Southern state governments under the control of Union loyalists were functioning.  But the Radical Republicans were bent on exacting humiliating vengeance on Southern “rebels,” exploiting Southern wealth and resources for themselves, and remaking the South into a Radical Republican political bastion using black voters. One of the greatest misfortunes of American history was that political and civil rights for blacks were combined with the vengeful and exploitive treatment of white Southerners by the Radical Republicans. Later, in 1867, they even passed a Reconstruction Act including measures to disenfranchise Confederate veterans and sympathizers.

In December 1865, the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery. Included in the three-quarters of the states necessary for ratification were seven Southern States whose governments had been appointed and reconstituted by President Johnson.  This, however, did not guarantee many civil rights for the former slaves, and as the Southern legislatures began to consist more of elected Democrats, they trended back to more traditional Southern caution on blacks. The Radical Republicans believed more amendments were needed to assure black civil rights and to advance their agenda for permanent political dominance of the nation.

Johnson was uncomfortable with coercing the States into enfranchising former slaves, but the Radical Republicans, most of whom had been radical abolitionists, were insistent.  As it turned out, the Radical Republicans were far less interested in black civil rights than black votes to perpetuate themselves in office. They envisioned massive black political support in “Reconstructed” Southern States as a guarantee of continued Radical Republican political dominance over national politics and would go to extraordinary lengths to secure that dominance and their agenda. Unfortunately, their partisan zeal would impose such tyranny on the South that it would poison race relations and regional trust for generations. To be continued. 

By the end of the “Civil” War, the Radical Republicans in Congress were already concerned about the future of the Republican Party and advancing their own political and economic agendas.  The term “radical” was a title they claimed for themselves rather than a pejorative given to them by their enemies. Their enemies, however, were happy to call them radicals. They were not friends to Lincoln, who considered both the Radical Republicans and the radical abolitionists a threat to his leadership.  Yet he knew that their support was necessary to keep a majority of Congress on his side, which was absolutely necessary to win the war.

The Radical plan for postwar America was quite different from Lincoln’s plan. The Radicals wanted to exact vengeance on the South, exploit Southern resources, and most importantly, to use the former slaves to form a Radical Republican majority in Southern states. They believed this was the only way the Republican Party could maintain an electoral majority after the war. In the 1860 Election, Lincoln received only about 40 percent of the national vote. He only won because Northern and Southern Democrats had divided over several slavery issues. The Republicans were essentially a regional party without substantial support in the South. The Radical Republicans believed that the return of the Democratic South to the Union would end their short-lived electoral majority.  Lincoln, on the other hand, believed he could successfully resurrect the old Whig coalition of Northern industrial and Southern agri-business interests with a core of Union loyalists to support a Unionist Republican Party. 

The Radical Republicans favored a severe Reconstruction that would enrich Northern interests at Southern expense, assure Republican electoral  majorities in Southern states,  continue protectionist tariff policies unopposed by Southern Free-Trade demands, and generally punish the South for her rebellion against Northern political dominance.  With the exception of  protective tariffs, which Lincoln strongly favored,  the Radicals feared Lincoln would throw away the North’s  hard-won victory to pursue a softer, more tolerant reconciliation of North and South, risking renewed Southern influence and the subsequent decline of  Northern political and economic advantages.

Following Lincoln’s assassination and Andrew Johnson’s swearing in as President, the Radicals believed Reconstruction would go more their way. Johnson had been a pro-Union Tennessee Congressman before the war and had been the Union Military Governor of Tennessee during the war. He was especially noted for his harsh words for any who supported secession. But Johnson was a former populist Democrat and a strong supporter of strict Constitutional government. He was pro-Union and anti-secession but not anti-Southern. Moreover, Johnson was

incorruptible and thus became a major obstacle to the Radical Republicans.

The Radical Republicans soon realized that the Thirteenth Amendment, outlawing slavery, needed to be followed by additional Reconstruction legislation. The Thirteenth Amendment did not give former slaves the right to vote, and facilitating and protecting that right was key to Republican aspirations for electoral dominance of a new South and the nation. The Republicans further argued that the civil rights of former slaves needed more protection, accusing several Southern states of restricting the civil rights of former slaves through new “Black Laws.” However, these “Black Laws” were simply a close imitation of even harsher anti-black legislation passed by many Northern states.

Indiana law codes would not allow blacks and mulattos to come into the state.  Illinois, the land of Lincoln, and Oregon prohibited blacks from entering their states without posting huge bonds. In Illinois, it was $1,000, several years’ income for most people.  Numerous other Northern states including Kansas, Michigan, Connecticut, Minnesota, and Wisconsin had rejected black voting suffrage and with it other rights and privileges of full citizenship.   

 Thus the 14th Amendment, which was really a combination of several Reconstruction bills, was born in concept.  Passing the 14th Amendment became a high priority for the Radical Republicans. So high, that they would ruthlessly violate the Constitution and engage in blatantly dishonest and despotic legislative manipulation.  Several aspects of the 14th Amendment would essentially turn the Constitution on its head and open the door for widespread Judicial, Executive, and Congressional abuse and tyranny. The shameful coercion, dishonesty, and numerous legislative and constitutional irregularities involved in passing the 14th Amendment should place its legitimacy in extreme doubt.

The Amendment consists of five sections.  The first section defines who is a citizen and overturns the Dred Scott versus Sanford Supreme Court decision that denied citizenship to blacks.  It also prevented states from abridging the rights of citizens or denying any person due process and equal protection of the laws.

Because Section 1 defines anyone born in the U.S. as a citizen, it has had vast unforeseen consequences. .Each year, more than 300,000 children born in the U.S. to illegal immigrant parents are automatically counted as citizens. This entitles both the child and mother to many welfare benefits covering pregnancy and birth. The writers of the 14th Amendment never intended it to benefit illegal immigrants.

Section 2 eliminated the three-fifths rule for slaves in apportioning legislative representation—ironically increasing Southern Electoral Votes. This section allowed for reducing representation as a penalty for its violation and left the door open to abridging the rights of those who had participated in “rebellion.”  Section 3 was the most objectionable to the South.  It denied public office to any person who had previously held Federal office or State legislative, judicial, or executive office and who had supported the Confederacy during the war.  It was not only humiliating and debilitating to the South but was also designed to guarantee Republican political hegemony in the South by limiting significant opposition.  Section 4 repudiated all Confederate debt, and legitimized the obligation of all citizens to pay for U. S. debt incurred during and after the war. Section 5 gave Congress the power to enforce the other four sections by legislation.  This was thought by many to be an open door to increasing Federal power over the States, which turned out to be quite true. 

The 39th Congress convened in December of 1865 just as the States, including seven Southern States, were finalizing ratification of the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery.  The Radical Republicans knew that they could not depend on elected Southern Congressmen to achieve the two-thirds super majorities in the U. S. Senate and House to pass the 14th amendment.  Consequently, they mustered a majority in both Houses of Congress and voted not to seat the 22 Senators and 58 representatives from eleven formerly Confederate States.  This was accomplished in part by “waving the bloody shirt” of Union losses during the war, impugning the patriotism of those willing to welcome the Southern States back into the Union fold, and appealing to partisan greed and lust for power.

However, in the U. S. Senate they could count only 33 of 50 votes, just one short, of that necessary for the two-thirds majority to pass a Constitutional Amendment.  To overcome this they devised a plan to retroactively unseat John P. Stockton of New Jersey, an outspoken opponent of the 14th Amendment.  It would have required a two-thirds vote to expel Senator Stockton for cause, but they could not muster the votes.  After several days of high pressure political maneuvering using the usual accusations and unseemly tactics, the Radical Republicans were able on March 27 to retroactively unseat Stockton.  The excuse was that the New Jersey Legislature had elected him by a plurality rather than a majority vote, but this was legal in New Jersey as well as several other states. In those days, U.S. Senators were elected by state legislatures rather than popular vote.  Such a retroactive unseating for transparently political objectives was highly irregular, but the 14th Amendment was counted as having passed the Senate on June 13, 1866.  A few days earlier the Amendment had passed the U. S. House with 120 votes, easily more than two-thirds of the 152 that voted, but there were 30 abstentions.

The Amendment was then required to go to President Johnson before going to the States for approval. Johnson, an opponent of the Amendment, was somehow bypassed. The Amendment then went to the 37 States. A constitutional amendment requires ratification by three-quarters of the States, or in this case 28. A rejection or failure to ratify by ten States would have killed the amendment.

Tennessee was the first to ratify the amendment, but without a proper quorum of its legislature.  Nevertheless, despite this irregularity, Tennessee was counted for ratification.  By February 6, 1867, all ten of the remaining Southern States and three Border states had rejected the amendment. California refused to consider it and later rejected it.  In addition, Ohio, in January of 1868, and New Jersey in March of 1868, reacting to Radical Republican despotism and public displeasure thereof, rescinded their earlier ramifications.  Oregon had ratified in September of 1866, but after settling a controversy over a few legislative seats, formerly rescinded on October 15, 1868.  The Oregon rescission was too late, however to effect the eventual outcome.

The Radical Republicans, however, had a radical plan to reverse Southern rejections of the 14th Amendment that fit their longer range agenda very well.  Under their leadership on March 2, 1867, a Reconstruction Act was passed over the veto of President Johnson that revoked the legal status of the ten Southern States that had rejected the 14th Amendment and placed them under a military government administered through five U. S. Army districts.

The inconsistency, appalling capriciousness, and hypocrisy of the Radical Republican position should be noted here.  If the Southern States were legal enough to have just ratified the 13th Amendment, how could Thaddeus Stevens, Chairman of the House Rules Committee, now say that these same States were “without any legal authority?”  It demonstrated once again the arbitrary and tyrannical mindset of the Radical Republicans.  This would become increasingly evident during the years of Reconstruction.  It was also certainly evident in their contrived attempt to impeach President Andrew Johnson for trying to dismiss his Secretary of War, Edwin Stanton.  But as previously indicated, the Radical Republicans had little regard for the Constitution, legal precedent, any concept of fairness, or honest parliamentary procedure.

And what of the declared Union objectives of the War?  Reunification of the States had now become secondary to the vengeful and totalitarian will of a few men who proclaimed themselves to be the will of the people. The Radical Republican vision for the South can be clearly seen here. In effect, after a long and bloody war “to hold the Union together,” Radical Republicans now kicked the South out of the Union for their own selfish, political purposes.  Southern States were to be subjugated tools of Radical Republican ambitions.  Every vestige of their culture, heritage, and political sovereignty would be subjected to a campaign of deliberate debasement and attempted eradication.  It revealed that a strong underlying Northern motivation for the War was keeping the South under their economic and political control as subjugated territories stripped of their political rights.   The purpose of the Reconstruction was to further subjugate and exploit the South, and this was done with a spirit of malice.  Re-admission depended upon their declared acceptance of the 14th Amendment.

One of the provisions of the Reconstruction Act was to enfranchise black males and disenfranchise all Confederate veterans and former Confederate officials.  Hence almost the entire white male population of the South except recent Northern immigrants and proven Union loyalists were without vote or voice in state, local, or federal government.  En-flaming the hatred of former slaves against their former masters was to be an important Radical Republican tool to subdue Southern spirit and provide for continued economic exploitation of the South.  This was to establish a permanent Republican dominance in the South and thereby the nation. The war had been ruinous, but military and “carpetbagger” governments would see to it that the ruin was increased and recovery was slow. Reconstruction was to be continued war by ruthless and unsavory political means.

Kentucky had not only rejected the amendment in January 1867, but by overwhelming majorities in a May 1867 election, sent a solid slate of nine Democrats to Congress.  On July 3, the Radical Republican Congress voted not to seat them.  On July 5, Senator Sumner of Massachusetts threatened to place Kentucky and Maryland under military government.  No action was taken on this, however, as Republicans began losing off year elections to Democrats in Northern states.

It was now demanded of the ten Southern States under military government that statehood would not be regained unless they ratified the 14th Amendment.  Six Southern states complied with the reconstructive coercion, and with the ratification s of South Carolina and Louisiana on July 9, 1868, Congress declared the 14th Amendment ratified, ignoring the recessions of Ohio, and New Jersey, and the impending rescission of Oregon.   By law, however, the official recognition of ratification of a constitutional amendment, rested with the Secretary of State, William H. Seward.  Seward proclaimed ratification of the 14th Amendment on July 20, but in his written and oral proclamation he referred to the questionable status of the Ohio and New Jersey ratification's in view of their later rescission.  Congress was unhappy with this.  The next day, assuming the function of the Secretary of State, Congress proclaimed by joint resolution that the 14th Amendment was officially ratified.  On July 28, Seward bowed to the Congressional resolution of the 21st and proclaimed the Amendment ratified.   With all the irregularities, frauds, and coercions involved, however, what fair minded person would recognize the 14th Amendment as constitutional? Yet it is accepted as such, and there are now many precedents in law based on the 14th Amendment.

The 14th Amendment in many senses turned the original Constitution and the first Ten Amendments on their head.  With the 14th Amendment, the nation has progressed from a philosophy of decentralized, limited government to a government increasingly characterized by highly centralized power. States Rights, once an essential check against excessive executive, judicial, and congressional power were reduced to a meek whisper, until their recent resurrection by the Tea Party movement in 2009.

Before the “Civil War,” Reconstruction, and the 14th Amendment, no federal judge would have dared contemplate removing the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Supreme Court building (2003) or striking down state legislation on abortion, much less making laws that forced young children to be bussed across a county to achieve an ideal racial balance, or prohibiting Bibles in schools and prayer at high school athletic events. They certainly would not have contemplated overturning state marriage laws and referendums. In addition, Congress now passes sweeping legislation that is clearly beyond the bounds of their enumerated powers in the Articles of the Constitution and in violation of the Bill of Rights, especially the 10th Amendment.

The 14th Amendment has some positives.  More attention is paid to individual civil rights and due process, but this has come at the price of considerable loss of freedom and liberties to individuals, businesses, churches, civic, educational, and social organizations, and various spheres of local and state government.  It also made us a coercive rather than a voluntary society.  Every year under the penumbra of the 14th Amendment, we progress further toward totalitarian government with little accountability or responsiveness to the governed or any concern for constitutional limits of power.

The history of the passage of the 14th Amendment unveils a remarkable corruption of the spirit of liberty and flagrant despotism that has been covered with decades of politically correct whitewash.  Such demonstrations of human depravity and course tyranny, though shameful, should not be covered up by a misguided sense of American patriotism. Few things are as necessary to a just society as truth.  Hence a sine qua non of all genuine patriotism is a high regard for truth.  Truth is always the high ground.
