By The President Of The Confederate States: A Proclamation concerning Beast Butler

Whereas a communication was addressed on the 6th day of July last (1862) by General Robert E. Lee, acting under the instructions of the Secretary of War of the Confederate States of America, to General H. W. Halleck, general-in-chief of the United States Army, informing the latter that a report had reached this Government that William B. Mumford, a citizen of the Confederate States, had been executed by the United States authorities at New Orleans for having pulled down the United States flag in that city before its occupation by the forces of the United States, and calling for a statement of the facts, with a view to retaliation, if such an outrage had really been committed under sanction of the authorities of the United States;

And whereas (no answer having been received to said letter) another letter was, on the 2d August last (1862), addressed by General Lee, under my instructions, to General Halleck, renewing the inquiry in relation to the said execution of said Mumford, with the information that in the event of not receiving a reply within fifteen days it would be assumed that the fact alleged was true and was sanctioned by the Government of the United States;

And whereas an answer, dated on the 7th August last (1862), was addressed to General Lee by General H. W. Halleck, the said general-in-chief of the armies of the United States, alleging sufficient cause for failure to make early reply to said letter of 6th July, asserting that "No authentic information had been received in relation to the execution of Mumford, but measures will be immediately taken to ascertain the facts of the alleged execution," and promising that General Lee should be duly informed thereof;

And whereas on the 29th November last (1862) another letter was addressed, under my instructions, by Robert Ould, Confederate agent for the exchange of prisoners, under the cartel between the two Governments, to Lieut. Col. W. H. Ludlow, agent of the United States under said cartel, informing him that the explanations promised in the said letter of General Halleck of 7th of August last had not yet been received, and that if no answer was sent to the Government within fifteen days from the delivery of this last communication it would be considered that an answer is declined,

And whereas, by letter dated on the 3d day of the present month of December, the said Lieutenant-Colonel Ludlow apprised the said Robert Enid that the above-recited communication of 29th of November had been received and forwarded to the Secretary of War of the United States;

And whereas this last delay of fifteen days allowed for answer has elapsed and no answer has been received;

And whereas, in addition to the tacit admission resulting from the above refusal to answer, I have received evidence fully establishing the truth of the fact that the said William B. Mumford, a citizen of this Confederacy, was actually and publicly executed in cold blood by hanging after the occupation of the city of New Orleans by the forces under the command of General Benjamin F. Butler, when said Mumford was an unresisting and non-combatant captive, and for no offense even alleged to have been committed by him subsequent to the date of the capture of the said city;

And whereas the silence of the Government of the United States and its maintaining of said Butler in high office under its authority for many months after his commission of an act that can be viewed in no other light than as a deliberate murder, as well as of numerous other outrages and atrocities hereafter to be mentioned, afford evidence only too conclusive that the said Government sanctions the conduct of said Butler and is determined that he shall remain unpunished for his crimes:

Now, therefore, I, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America, and in their name, do pronounce and declare the said Benjamin F. Butler to be a felon, deserving of capital punishment. I do order that he be no longer considered or treated simply as a public enemy of the Confederate States of America, but as an outlaw and common enemy of mankind, and that in the event of his capture the officer in command of the capturing force do cause him to be immediately executed by hanging; and I do further order that no commissioned officer of the United States taken captive shall be released on parole before exchange until the said Butler shall have met with due punishment for his crimes.

And whereas the hostilities waged against this Confederacy by the forces of the United States under the command of said Benjamin F. Butler have borne no resemblance to such warfare as is alone permissible by the rules of international law or the usages of civilization, but have been characterized by repeated atrocities and outrages, among the large number of which the following may be cited as examples:

Peaceful and aged citizens, unresisting captives and non-combatants, have been confined at hard labor, with balls and chains attached to their limbs, and are still so held, in dungeons and fortresses Others have been subjected to a like degrading punishment for selling medicines to the sick soldiers of the Confederacy.

The soldiers of the United States have been invited and encouraged by general orders to insult and outrage the wives, the mothers, and the sisters of our citizens.

Helpless women have been torn from their homes and subjected to solitary confinement, some in fortresses and prisons and one especially on an island of barren sand under a tropical sun, have been fed with loathsome rations that had been condemned as unfit for soldiers, and have been exposed to the vilest insults.

Prisoners of war who surrendered to the naval forces of the United States on agreement that they should be released on parole have been seized and kept in close confinement.

Repeated pretexts have been sought or invented for plundering the inhabitants of the captured city by fines, levied and exacted under threat of imprisoning recusants at hard labor with ball and chain.

The entire population of the city of New Orleans have been forced to elect between starvation, by the confiscation of all their property, and taking an oath against conscience to bear allegiance to the invaders of their country.

Egress from the city has been refused to those whose fortitude withstood the test, even to lone and aged women and to helpless children; and after being ejected from their homes and robbed of their property they have been left to starve in the streets or subsist on charity.

The slaves have been driven from the plantations in the neighborhood of New Orleans till their owners would consent to share the crops with the commanding general, his brother, Andrew J..Butler, and other officers; and when such consent had been extorted the slaves have been restored to the plantations, and there compelled to work under the bayonets of guards of United States soldiers.

Where this partnership was refused armed expeditions have been sent to the plantations to rob them of every thing that was susceptible of removal, and even slaves too aged or infirm for work have, in spite of their entreaties, been forced from the homes provided by the owners and driven to wander helpless on the highway.

By a recent general order (No. 91) the entire property in that part of Louisiana lying west of the Mississippi River has been sequestrated for confiscation, and officers have been assigned to duty, with orders to gather up and collect the personal property and turn over to the proper officers upon their receipts such of said property as may be required for the use of the United States Army; to collect together all the other personal property and bring the same to New Orleans and cause it to be sold at public auction to the highest bidders"-- an order which, if executed, condemns to punishment by starvation at least a quarter of a million of human beings of all ages, sexes, and conditions; and of which the execution, although forbidden to military officers by the orders of President Lincoln, is in accordance with the confiscation law of our enemies, which he has directed to be enforced through the agency of civil officials. And, finally, the African slaves have not only been excited to insurrection by every license and encouragement, but numbers of them have actually been armed for a servile war--a war in its nature far exceeding in horrors the most merciless atrocities of the savages.

And whereas the officers under the command of the said Butler have been in many instances active and zealous agents in the commission of these crimes, and no instance is known of the refusal of any one of them to participate in the outrages above narrated;

And whereas the President of the United States has, by public and official declaration, signified not only his approval of the effort to excite servile war within the Confederacy, but his intention to give aid and encouragement thereto if these independent States shall continue to refuse submission to a foreign power after the first day of January next, and has thus made known that all appeals to the laws of nations, the dictates of reason, and the instincts of humanity would be addressed in vain to our enemies, and that they can be deterred from the commission of these crimes only by the terms of just retribution:

Now, therefore, I, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States of America, and acting by their authority, appealing to the Divine Judge in attestation that their conduct is not guided by the passion of revenge, but that they reluctantly yield to the solemn duty of repressing, by necessary severity, crimes of which their citizens are the victims, do issue this my proclamation, and by virtue of my authority Commander-in-Chief of the Armies of the Confederate States do order--

1st. That all commissioned officers in the command of said Benjamin F. Butler be declared not entitled to be considered as soldiers engaged in honorable warfare, but as robbers and criminals, deserving death; and that they and each of them be, whenever captured, reserved for execution.

2d. That the private soldiers and non-commissioned officers in the army of said Butler be considered as only the instruments used for the commission of the crimes perpetrated by his orders and not as free agents; that they therefore be treated, when captured, as prisoners of war, with kindness and humanity, and be sent home on the usual parole, that they will in no manner aid or serve the United States in any capacity during the continuance of this war unless duly exchanged.

3d. That all negro slaves captured in arms be at once delivered over to the executive authorities of the respective States to which they belong, to be dealt with according to the laws of said States.

4th. That the like orders be executed in all cases with respect to all commissioned officers of the United States when found serving in company with armed slaves in insurrection against the authorities of the different States of this Confederacy.

In testimony whereof I have signed these presents and caused the seal of the Confederate States of America to be affixed thereto at the city of Richmond, on this 23d day of December, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two.

Beast Butler and His Woman Order

Benjamin Butler, a talented politician and lawyer, inept general, utterly corrupt, was certainly in the running for one of the most colorful characters of the Civil War. He achieved immortality, certainly in the South, with his infamous “woman order”. Southern belles tended to be very outspoken about what they thought of the Union troops in the South, and, naturally enough, it was rarely complimentary. Butler decided to attack the problem with general order 28.

General Orders, No. 28.

New Orleans, May 15, 1862.

As the officers and soldiers of the United States have been subject to repeated insults from the women (calling themselves ladies) of New Orleans in return for the most scrupulous non-interference and courtesy on our part, it is ordered that hereafter when any female shall by word, gesture, or movement insult or show contempt for any officer or soldier of the United States she shall be regarded and held liable to be treated as a woman of the town plying her avocation.

By command of Major-General Butler:

Assistant Adjutant-General and Chief of Staff.

To say the South was outraged by this Order reveals the limitation of language. The anger against Butler after this in the South reached peaks of hatred that are almost indescribable except by a primal scream of volcanic rage.

One entrepreneur made a small fortune by manufacturing Butler chamber pots.

The Academic Scandal Elizabeth Warren and Harvard Don't Want You to Know About

Via Old Virginia Blog

In 1990, Rutgers Professor Philip Shuchman charged Elizabeth Warren, along with Teresa A. Sullivan (above), the President of University of Virginia who resigned unexpectedly yesterday, and Jay Westbrook, her two co-authors of the 1989 book, As We Forgive Our Debtors: Bankruptcy and Consumer Credit in America, with “scientific misconduct.” Within a few months, Warren’s friends and former colleagues at the University of Texas quickly completed an error-filled investigation.

This secret report was accepted by University of Texas President William Cunningham. For two decades, Warren and her co-authors have claimed in academic circles that this report--never before made public--exonerated them.

But the central charge made by Professor Shuchman was neither investigated nor refuted in this secret report. Shuchman cited four specific criticisms of the 1989 book. It is the fourth and last complaint upon which charges of scientific misconduct hang.

Professor Shuchman concluded his book review with this powerful allegation:

A few goodies from The Moneychanger


On 14 June 1642 Massachusetts passed the first compulsory school attendance law. We all know what a success THAT idea has been.

On 14 June 1953 Elvis Presley graduated from Humes High School in Memphis. He had been complying with the law, which by then had spread from Massachusetts to Tennessee.

Here's a riddle to chew on. On 14 June 1954 Dwight Eisenhower signed a law adding the words "under God" to the Pledge of Allegiance. No, they weren't included in there at first because the pledge was written in 1892 by a defrocked socialist minister, and was said into the 1930s with hand raised in the fascist salute, until that made the point too embarrassing. So the new Creed, the Pledge of Allegiance, mentioned no God but the state for the first 60 years of its life. One wonders how adding those two words changed anything. Compulsory pledge, compulsory allegiance -- I reckon that fits right in with compulsory school attendance.

Exterminating Southerners and Their Odious Ways

Attack and Die: Civil War Military Tactics and the Southern Heritage

The cultural characteristics which separated North and South in 1860 suggest that the existing conflict, soon to break out into open warfare, was between two distinct peoples and cultures. The war has been recognized as between not merely Rebels and Yankees, but Celts and their historic enemies in England.

Bernhard Thuersam, Chairman
North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission
"The Official Website of the North Carolina WBTS Sesquicentennial"

Exterminating Southerners and Their Odious Ways:

“Yankees viewed Southerners with fully as much contempt as Englishmen viewed Celts. Before the Civil War a Northerner, with typical Anglo-Saxon arrogance, advised Yankees to “mingle freely” with Southerners, “and….strive to bring up their habits, by a successful example, to the New England standard.” When that proved impossible, stronger measures were recommended.

“I believe,” announced a saintly Northerner, “that the great conception of a Christian society, which was in the minds of the Pilgrims of the Mayflower….is to displace and blot out the foul [South]…., with all its heaven-offending enormities; that….our vast and heterogeneous….population is either to be subdued and won to its principles and blessings or to give place to the seed of the righteous.”

A Massachusetts soldier favored a policy of genocide toward Southerners. “I would exterminate them root and branch,” he wrote just after the war. “They have often said they preferred it to subjugation, and, with the help of God, I would give it to them. I am only saying what thousands say every day.”

In calls to exterminate Southerners and their “odious ways,” Northerners sounded much like English Puritans who advocated the obliteration of their “barbaric” Celtic neighbors. It may be no coincidence that Irish-born reporter William Howard Russell described Federal Secretary of War Edwin Stanton as “excessively vain….a rude, rough, vigorous Oliver Cromwell sort of man.”

Typically, Yankees referred to Confederates as dirty and ignorant, just as the English had spoken of the Irish, Welsh and Scots. A Minnesotan called Confederate soldiers “vagabonds,” while another Yank denounced them as “ruffians and desperadoes.” Several Federals spoke of Southerners as “savages,” and one Connecticut soldier informed his sister that “the Rebels are Barbarians and savages.”

CSS Neuse Moves to Downtown Kinston

Via Michael Chardy

KINSTON - After many years of planning and preparation, the CSS Neuse will move to its new climate controlled home in downtown Kinston on Saturday, June 23. The 141 foot remains of the vessel will be loaded onto moving dollies at sunrise to begin the short journey from Vernon Avenue to downtown. The 260 tons will travel at the dizzying speed of one mile per hour and should arrive at its destination after two hours.

The ironclad CSS Neuse was a new class of warship built with iron plates attached to protect her crew. Because of her weight and the receding Neuse River, she saw little military action and was scuttled and burned by her crew in 1865. For nearly 100 years, the remains rested on the bottom of the Neuse River. Since 1964, the vessel has been part of the CSS Neuse/Governor Richard Caswell State Historic Site. This is the only commissioned Confederate ironclad that remains above water.

In addition to climate control, the new space at 100 N. Queen St. has a 12 inch slab below floor to hold the vessel, and the tall beams needed to support the ceiling. Because of the size of the ironclad, construction on the building will be completed after the Neuse is positioned inside.
The Caswell Memorial will remain open during the period of the move, but tours of the CSS Neuse have been suspended as preparations for the move are underway.

For additional information, call (919) 807-7389. The CSS Neuse/Governor Caswell State Historic Site is part of the Division of State Historic Sites within the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources.


CSS Neuse Replica

Not what you'd expect to find on the average vacant lot in downtown Kinston, NC. The replica is full-size and usually open to the public (including the interior). Still impressive from the outside, the Neuse ll is the only full scale CSS ironclad replica in existence.

While in Kinston, also check out the CSS Neuse Museum, the Civil War Trails markers for the first battle of Kinston, and just to the west along Route 70, the markers for the battle of Wyse Fork. Be aware, though, that most state facilities in NC are closed on Sundays.

Photos of Obama's mother in fetish and bondage magazines

Via Billy

Racy photos of Barack Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, have recently surfaced in vintage fetish and bondage magazines. The photos, taken at Frank Marshall Davis' house in Honolulu, appeared in Bizarre Life, Exotique, Secret Pleasures, and Battling Babes. They help illustrate the intimate relationship between Dunham and Davis. "My father was from Kenya, he grew up herding goats," Barack Obama told the cheering crowds. Did Obama build his political career upon a fairy tale? Was Obama misdirecting Americans away from a deeply disturbing family background and a Marxist political foundation?

Obama's version of his early childhood is false -- the family did not split up when the Kenyan Obama went to Harvard as he claimed. In fact, Ann Dunham, took "Barry" to Seattle a few weeks after his birth, in late August 1961, and began studies at the University of Washington, while the Kenyan remained in Hawaii. All evidence points to a "sham" marriage to cover up an illicit affair. Barack Obama began regular visits to Frank Marshall Davis' house at the age of 10, and Obama refers to Frank Marshall Davis throughout his autobiography as his childhood "mentor." Dreams from My Real Father makes the case that the Communist Party USA propagandist was both Obama's biological and ideological father, and likely indoctrinated Obama in Marxism during his formative years.

Defense – Obstacles Part I: Introduction

So far we have covered fields of fire and observation, cover and concealment, and now it’s time to tackle obstacles. Note I’m going to venture a bit away from normal military doctrine in covering obstacles. What is an obstacle? An obstacle is either a natural, man improved, or man made feature that is designed and placed in such a way that it will frustrate, channel, delay, or otherwise impede a threats movement (the obstacles goals). Notice there’s no stop but just delay. That brings us to a few basic truths about obstacles.

  • Obstacles will not stop a threat. They will delay it, but a determined threat is going to eventually breach an obstacle.
  • Obstacles that are covered by observation and fire are more effective at accomplishing their goals than unobserved ones.
  • Obstacles that are concealed typically frustrate the threat better than visible ones.
  • Placed correctly an obstacle can channel the threat into your field of fire.
  • Natural obstacles tend to be the most effective. Man made the least.
  • It is much easier to halt or delay a vehicle than a person on foot with an obstacle.
  • Obstacles require periodic checking and maintenance to remain effective.
  • And finally the greatest truth of them all: Any obstacle that’s going to delay a threat getting in is most likely going to delay YOU getting out.

Former U.S. Attorney: Leaks Are 'Outrageous'

Ronald Kessler reporting from Washington, D.C.
— The White House has engaged in “outrageous” leaking in an obvious attempt to enhance President Obama’s re-election efforts, Joe diGenova, the former U.S. Attorney in Washington, tells Newsmax.

“There has been a pattern of stories — not just a story — but a pattern of stories clearly leaking sources and methods information in order to make the president look like he is a tough cookie,” says diGenova, a noted commentator on legal and political issues.

“When you look at the series of stories, they run over a set period of time,” diGenova says. “Not once during that time that these three or four articles were appearing did you hear an objection from the White House, not from the press podium, not from the president, not from the national security advisor, not from the CIA director, not from the Department of Defense, and not from the National Security Council.”

That clearly indicates the leaks were authorized, says diGenova.

With the Democs having dominated NC politics for the past 100 years, one can safely say FAR more Democrat “deals have been done” over Big Ed’s biscuits soaked in blackstrap molasses and other downhome Southern delicacies than have eeeeevil Republican deals.

But now that a prominent Republican will be in Big Ed’s, the N&O’s junior political newshound – John Frank – reminds the N&O’s ever dwindling readership that:

Big Ed’s has a Confederate memorial on its wall….. OH NO!!!!

Yep….. the same restaurant which has served every NC politician of note for the past 30 years is now revealed to be by Frank’s obvious insinuation ….. probably a KKK stronghold and no doubt a gathering place for them what hates black folks including prominent Republican Paul Ryan. ….. and Jim Hunt, Mike Easley, Dumplin, Mark Basnight, Tony Rand, Deborah Ross, David Parker, Walter Dalton, Jim Black, Joe Hackney….. heck, maybe The Obamas have visited Big Ed’s on one of their many many visits to Raleigh in the past year.

An Open Letter To The “Media” – In all its apparent forms – Regarding Contact

Right on!

The Last Refuge

In an effort to improve personal time management, and devote necessary time to advancing our goals, please consider this a standard form letter response to any further inquiry:

Dear Mr. XXXXXXXX, prudence and necessarily instilled manners dictate that all correspondence deserves the full weight of polite response.

Allow me to thank you, with the most humble and earnest of appreciation, for all you do on behalf of a simple citizenry of which I am a proud and insignificant member. Indeed if our paths were ever to cross in person, I hold no disposition that you, as a person of consequence, would ever afford these calloused and well worn hands the time of day. I am, like many, comfortably invisible.

That said, and with the utmost respect for your professional endeavors, I hope you will consider this correspondence carefully.

It is not our “goal” to raise funds for George Zimmerman. It is our goal to shine light upon the injustice that George Zimmerman represents.

When you see that justice is measured, not by due process, but by compulsion – when you see that in order to invoke your sixth amendment right to due process, you need to obtain permission from men who rebuke the constitution – when you see that justice is determined by those who leverage, not in law, but in politics – when you see that men get power over individual liberty by graft and by scheme, and your representatives don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you – when you see corruption holding influence and individual liberty so easily dispatched and nullified – you may well know that your freedom too is soon to perish.

You present the name “Drudge” as if it is a reflective of some courageous endeavor. Alas, the disconnect, and innocent naivete’ of those only partially immersed in the battle to save the republic shines through. What could be next, Ann Coulter references, or maybe, if more fortunate, maybe even Jeb Bush. OH MY.

I’m most certain that you hold the best of all intentions. However, in viewing a goal to be getting this type of story “Drudgeable”… as in, supported and advanced by the same Matt Drudge who specifically and intentionally used his site influence to marginalize, diminish, and ridicule any unapproved “patriotic, or dirty fingernail comfortable presidential candidate” other than his chosen “in-guy” Romney; for what?

Cocktail party invites and trips on the yacht with crust-less sandwiches and Corinthian clad captains’ chairs for cigar smoking and discussions of the next Mrs. Trophy wife?

If Matt Drudge wished, or concerned himself, upon the challenge to save our republic, does he not hold a far greater resource capacity to advance such a truth without provocation?

My honest and respectfully intended question to you would be: What is it that makes media folks always want to “get an interview” when the information is there for the taking?

Perhaps, by training, by habit, or by unintended consequence you have developed yourself to live for the process itself as an end result. Is it logical to believe that journalism is the interview; the conversation is the point; the smoke is the fire?

Please forgive my uneducated and poorly worded suppositions, but apparently journalism has evolved into reveling in the process and, as a consequence, it completely ignores the end point, misses the bottom line, doesn’t actually SEE the subject matter and never actually applies what might be discovered.

In fact, I’m led to believe that sometimes those within the industrial media complex avoid the subject matter deliberately, because if they get their heads around it and nail it home, they won’t have anything to talk about any more–because they will have exhausted their stash.

Not attempting whatsoever to lump your intention into such a fray; however, many have gotten into the habit of milking each situation for “so many leads,” “so many interviews,” “so many column inches,” and “so many angles” that problem-solving does not appeal to them at all. They oddly appear to favor the endless process.

So when there’s an approach like what you are encountering with our significant site research, and my reluctance for self involvement, I don’t fit –because I don’t give a flip about “the process.” And therefore, I do not fit into the rationale of the box or the PERT chart.

If you want to make these truths known, they are free for the taking; and they are by no matter or consequence dependent on my advancement.

Borrowing from Mike Vanderboegh - This is no small thing, to restore a republic after it has fallen into corruption. I have studied history for years and I cannot recall it ever happening. It may be that our task is impossible. Yet, if we do not try then how will we know it can’t be done? And if we do not try, it most certainly won’t be done. The Founders’ Republic, and the larger war for western civilization, will be lost.

But I tell you this: We will not go gently into that bloody collectivist good night. Indeed, we will make with our defiance such a sound as ALL history from that day forward will be forced to note, even if they despise us in the writing of it.

And when we are gone, the scattered, free survivors hiding in the ruins of our once-great republic will sing of our deeds in forbidden songs, tending the flickering flame of individual liberty until it bursts forth again, as it must, generations later. We will live forever, like the Spartans at Thermopylae, in sacred memory.

With profound appreciation for your time and attention, and the most warm of regards.

ACLU sues NC over same-sex adoption ban

Via Rebellion

Screw you. Mind your own business.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday morning challenging North Carolina’s law that effectively prohibits same-sex couples from adopting children.

The lawsuit was filed on behalf of six gay or lesbian couples from different parts of North Carolina who have one or more children each. It claims the state law violates the constitutional rights of children.

State law prevents unmarried couples from petitioning for adoption, and same-sex marriage has been outlawed in North Carolina for some time. In May, voters approved elevating the same-sex marriage ban as a constitutional amendment.

“Second parents” cannot file for adoption as individuals unless the legal parent of a child gives up all parental rights, under state law.

The man, identified as 40-year-old Christopher Brian Deese of Auburndale, broke into one home and then went to William Cornwell's front door about 3:55 a.m. and started banging on it, deputies said.

The noise awoke Cornwell's wife, Traci, who told deputies he was screaming to be let in but she had no idea who the man was.

Her husband got his gun and told the intruder several times to leave, but the man outside kept screaming.

Cornwell, 33, who works as a security guard, opened his door and continued yelling at the man through a screen door.

Instead of heeding the warnings, the man ran into the home where Cornwell's two children, ages 3 and 6, were sleeping.

Cornwell then fumbled with the gun, and a shot went off into the floor. Deputies said Deese then stopped briefly, took off his shirt and yelled, "You wanna fight?," and charged at Cornwell.

A bullet from Cornwell's gun pierced Deese's chest, killing him.

"If there ever was a justified shooting, this is it," Judd said. "This is a classic 'Castle Doctrine' case … The mistake the suspect made by breaking into that home was a fatal one."

Some cry 'coup' as Egypt's highest court annuls parliament, military extends power

Via Vox Popoli

Egypt Flag

Egypt's highest court declared the parliament invalid Thursday, and the country's interim military rulers promptly declared full legislative authority, triggering a new level of chaos and confusion in the country's leadership.

The Supreme Constitutional Court found that all articles making up the law that regulated parliamentary elections are invalid, said Showee Elsayed, a constitutional lawyer.

The ruling means that parliament must be dissolved, state TV reported.

Parliament has been in session for just over four months. It is dominated by Islamists, a group long viewed with suspicion by the military.

The Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, in control of the country since Mubarak's ouster, said that it now has full legislative power and will announce a 100-person assembly that will write the country's new constitution by Friday.

3 days until the Virginia Sam Davis Youth Camp

If the South should lose, it means that the history of the heroic struggle will be written by the enemy, that our youth will be trained by Northern school teachers, will be impressed by all of the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors and our maimed veterans as fit subjects for derision.

Lincoln the Presidential Dwarf

President John Tyler’s son Lyon Gardiner Tyler was incensed in 1917 by a New York Times editorial which compared Southern planters to Hohenzollern autocrats plaguing the world. In 1928, Tyler was provoked again when the Virginia legislature adjourned on Lincoln’s birthday and he declared publicly that Lincoln did not merit the honor. Time magazine fired back that President Tyler was a dwarf in comparison to the rail splitter, and Lyon published a book in 1929 defending his distinguished father – who had met Thomas Jefferson as a boy.

Lincoln the Presidential Dwarf:

“The reader of [Dr. Tyler’s] book will also have called to his attention the fact that in the recent World War this country had its flag fired upon time and time again and its citizens killed on the high seas without resorting to war, and Lincoln knew that the capturing of a fort guarding and controlling the most important city of South Carolina meant merely protection for that city and not an attack on the North.

It could be likewise been shown here that just a matter of weeks before the ballyhoo about “firing on the flag” at Sumter had been set to work to enrage the North, the flag had been fired upon when the Star of the West was shot at and turned back, but under Buchanan’s calm rule there was practically no excitement.

As to Lincoln’s cabinet [in contrast to John Tyler’s], “the accounts teems with the insubordinate actions of Seward, Stanton and Chase, to say nothing of Welles, while Stanton and Chase reveled in insults to Lincoln.”

As to the ideas of the two men in regard to personal responsibility and family obligations…”Lincoln wrote to Grant in February 1865 (the war almost over), asking that his son, aged twenty-two, who had been kept at Harvard in spite of the draft, should be put on his staff and “not in the ranks.” President Tyler had four grandsons in the Confederate army, one of whom was killed and another wounded, and two sons by his second marriage who surrendered at Appomattox, aged sixteen and seventeen.”

“When [Beast] Butler issued his notorious “Order N0. 28” at New Orleans (an order that shocked decent humanity), which Lord Palmerson, the Prime Minister of England declared in the British Parliament was “unfit to be written in the English language;” Lincoln did not revoke the order, but on the contrary promoted Butler to responsible positions and wanted him as his running mate for the vice presidency in 1864. Yet Butler is the man who, Dr. John Fiske declared, “could not have understood in the smallest degree the feelings of gentlemen.”

Lawmakers lose election but refuse to leave in Quartzsite, Ariz.

Remember this?

What would happen if an election took place, and the incumbent losers refused to leave office?

That’s exactly the situation in Quartzsite, Ariz., where two winning candidates for the positions of mayor and town councilman are not being allowed to be seated.

Quartzsite is the town that gained national attention last June when police grabbed a woman who was speaking at a town-council meeting and frogmarched her from the event. (Scroll down for video).

The 2012 municipal election took place May 15, but the old town council in Quartzsite has since refused to seat Ed Foster as mayor and Mark Orgeron as councilman.

Foster collected 56 percent of the vote to easily defeat opponent Jerry Lukkasson, but officials claim he cannot be seated because of an unpaid debt to the town, and so Jose Lizarraga remains at the helm for now.

Orgeron defeated Vice Mayor Barbara Cowell, but is not being seated, as officials dispute his residency in the town.

“This is outrageous,” says Chris Rossiter of the Greater Phoenix Tea Party Patriots. “The tea party will not tolerate corruption in public office.”

Grand jury to get case of Texas dad who beat alleged child molester to death


A Texas prosecutor said the case of a rancher who beat to death a man he caught allegedly molesting his daughter will go to a grand jury to decide whether the killing was justified, or an act of excessive force.

The father, whose name has not been released by authorities, claims he caught the man trying to molest his 4-year-old daughter on his ranch Saturday. Although Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon said the girl’s father is unlikely to be arrested, District Attorney Heather McMinn told the case remains under investigation and that the Texas Rangers have joined the probe.

“Once completed, [results of the investigation] will be forwarded to the district attorney’s office and it will be taken to a grand jury,” McMinn told “They’re still investigating what happened at this point.”

The grand jury will ultimately decide what charges -- if any -- the girl’s father will face, McMinn said.

Holder faces corruption scandal, too

At a time when millions of Americans are losing their homes as a result of questionable or fraudulent mortgage banking practices, Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department is being accused of blocking prosecution of a high-visibility real estate deal.

Holder, who is under pressure by Congress members investigating the Fast & Furious gun-running scandal to resign, allegedly aims to protect a high-profile international bank client of his former law firm and shield Democratic Party operatives implicated in the scheme.

WND has obtained several hundred pages of documents alleging that Holder and Lanny Breuer, the assistant attorney general for the DOJ’s criminal division, have intervened to block recommended federal prosecutions in an ongoing dispute involving the exclusive Yellowstone Club, a private golf and ski resort now owned by supermarket billionaire Ron Burkle and international bank Credit Suisse.

Allegedly, Holder and Breuer want to shield from federal criminal prosecution the bank, Credit Suisse Group AG, a client of the Washington-based law firm Covington & Burling, as well as key Democratic Party operatives suspected of playing a role in allegedly fraudulent mortgage financing and bank lending practices.

HOA's Rules v. Bastiat's Natural Rights

on said:

.........What if I have a neighbor that trashes his yard so badly it smells and draws flies and roaches? What if he keeps blue-tick hounds which howl all night long, or – G-d forbid, beagles? What if he burns trash and the smoke blows right across my backyard where my family and I are trying to enjoy some BBQ on the deck or patio? What if the creek runs through both our properties, and he dumps used motor oil and dead livestock into it?

How do we handle stuff like that? No, I don’t want a bunch of laws, code enforcement, CC&R’s and such. Part of me says the answer is to ask him nicely not to, and then cap his ass if he continues anyway, but I know that isn’t realistic either. Have you thought about this and come up with any ideas? I really don’t want to shoot his dogs or even his nasty ass, but if I can’t afford to move, what do I do?

As Jefferson said, “Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.” My rights include not being poisoned by this cretin, nor driven insane by his barking dogs, nor having to smell his burning trash with every mouthful of shredded pork. How do I protect my rights?

I have thought a lot about those things. There are no easy answers. I have to go back to my Grandpa’s generation and how they handled these problems. Grandpa was born in 1890, before all these codes and HOA’s. Grandpa taught my Dad about personal responsibility, and Dad taught me. A large part of what I was taught was that I don’t have a right to harm someone else unless he is harming me. I was 6 or 7, mid to late 60′s, Grandpa had a neighbor that raised Red Bone coon hounds. The guy had one dog, his main stud, that liked to chase cows. Grandpa went over and warned him he would kill the dog if he didn’t get it under control. It happened a second time, Grandpa went back and told him it was his last warning. About a week later I’m standing in Grandpa’s front yard when I hear his 3030 in the back yard. Grandpa got the dead dog and throw him over the fence back on the guys property. The guy came by and talked to Grandpa and he was not happy. Grandpa told him that he meant what he said, he should have never doubted him. The guy complained to a couple of the neighbors about it and I guess made some threats against Grandpa, all the neighbors stood with Grandpa. The guy ended up coming back and apologizing to Grandpa. This day and age I would be surprised to see that happen.

I seriously doubt Grandpa could get away with that today. But there is a huge difference between his generation and ours. When they had a problem it wasn’t the states problem, the counties problem, or the cities, it was theirs and they had to deal with it. They didn’t depend on law enforcement back then like we do today, they depended on themselves and each other. Grandpa knew all of his neighbors and visited them regularly, my neighbors run inside when I walk down the street, they don’t want to know me or talk to me.

Our society has changed drastically since I was a kid and not for the better. I grew up in a mountain farming community where everybody knew everybody. To a certain extent we all depended on each other. We did barn raising, put up hay together, helped each other out when it was needed. That sense of community has been lost for the most part in our society today. It is every man for himself, it is very selfish. I think that is a lot of the reason why our country is going down the tubes. I think we could get rid of some of this code today, but due to the condition of our society we would not be able to get rid of all codes and let the people self govern as we are supposed to. If they did you and I would be forced to cap some idiot because he just didn’t know when to stop and correct his actions. You will do me no harm.

If you know your neighbors and they are reasonable and responsible people most problems can be resolved peacefully. Of course even in Grandpa’s day not all disputes were settled peacefully, I grew up in the same neck of the woods as the Hatfields and McCoys. Blood feuds were not that uncommon in that part of the country. And most started over next to nothing. Some people are just hell bent on fighting and where I grew up you either put with them or did something about it.

Bottom line, I would love to see our country get back to that place where we had a measure of respect for each other. The community I grew up in was very good at self governance but everybody had a respect for the other man. Today we do not have that, I hope and pray that it is not lost for all time and without it I think it is very hard to be self governing. We need a spiritual reformation as well as governmental and financial. Until we do I am afraid we will have to live with some code enforcement.

I know its not a great answer and it is not the answer I want to give. I hope I have given you food for thought.
