"Government is fear, pure and simple. Otherwise, you would not obey most of the edicts nor would you be facing the unthinkable economic calamity that awaits America. Its power is to fine, trap, detain, cage, maim and kill citizens who refuse to comply. In America, that compliance has cost us our future.
Cairo is a harbinger of things to come here. Get ready."

"The Anderson Platoon, 1967 Vietnam war, best Documentary Award. This Academy Award-winning documentary is an intense, honest, and often terrifying look into the life of an Army platoon as they drag themselves through the rivers, marshes, and jungles of Vietnam. Led by West Point Graduate Lt. Joseph B. Anderson."
Two excerpts before documentary.
Two and three are identical and after a search it appears that the missing one is not available for free at this time; however you can download the complete film for the membership fee of $1.82 HERE.

Cites allegations, reminds of legal protection for whistleblowers
The first letter, dated Jan. 27, expresses "serious concerns" about Project Gunrunner, and notes allegations about the slaying of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry "were accompanied by detailed documentation which appears to lend credibility to the claims and partially corroborates them.
The second letter, dated Jan. 31, copies Attorney General Eric Holder, and reminds acting director Melson that ATF management must respect whistleblower protections and that "obstructing a Congressional investigation is a crime."
"These results lead to a change of situation," said Khalil after he read the results. "That change relates only to the constitutional form of relationship between north and south. North and south are drawn together in indissoluble geographic and historic bonds." Via Rebellion

“It is an education problem. I think we have to educate them,” said John Holdren, who heads the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, in an interview broadcast Sunday.
It is that you may have a majority in the Congress of the Untied States and convert the government into an engine of Northern aggrandizement. It is that your section may grow in power and prosperity upon treasures unjustly taken from the South, like the vampire bloated and gorged with the blood which it has secretly sucked from its victim. Your desire to weaken the political power of the Southern states, - and why? Because you want, by an unjust system of legislation, to promote the industry of the New England States, at the expense of the people of the South and their industry.”
--Senator Jefferson Davis 1860
The local groups, the Leon Rifles and The Ladies Sewing Society do a civilian living history presentation every year and demonstrate cooking, periods games, civilian life and clothing.
We maybe also doing cannon demonstrations if you wanted to come out and train on cannon or even go through infantry drills. There are plenty of activities for children and adults with the old style farm, animals and other demonstrations.
Hope to see you there.

Guaranteed that they started this study with the expressed purpose of prohibiting Saigas. Tyrants all.
Here it comes, just as I warned: BATFE Study On The Importability Of Certain Shotguns. I believe that it was no coincidence that the ATF document featured a picture of a Saiga 12 shotgun. That is the one that has the feeling antsy. They are presently having a "public comment period." Please politely let the ATF know two things: 1.) The Second Amendment has nothing to do with "sporting" guns or hunting ducks. Rather, it preserves our right to own paramilitary ("militia") firearms. and 2.) Detachable magazine shotguns such as the Saiga 12 gauge are indeed popular for sporting shotgun "Three Gun Match" events.
Politely? Screw them! Non-compliance, period, IF they are stupid enough to try this. Shades of 1994, but Marxists aren't educable.

53rd NC Ft. Mahone, Petersburg. The boy above was 14.
Saw the video had to replay it several times, as these pictures unlike the thousands we all have viewed, caused me to sense these deaths in a more personal AND heartfelt sorrow.
For all who view this wonderful site, please remember:
THEY MAY HAVE TAKEN THESE LIVES OF OUR CONFEDERATE ANCESTORS AND PERHAPS IT WILL COME TO THAT THEY WILL TAKE OUR LIVES, BUT THEY WILL NEVER TAKE OUR FREEDOM.
For, as long as but a hundred of us remain, alive, never will we on any condition be brought under Union rule.

"One of the ATF sources involved with “Project Gunwalker” (allegations by insiders from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives that bureau management allowed guns to be transported across the border into Mexico and kept the authorities there in the dark) indicates management pressure is now being brought to bear against at least one suspected whistleblower."
" This is going to get mighty ugly. It is also one of the STUPIDEST things I think Obama could do --- people are really angry that the Government allowed a bunch of thieving bankers to walk away unscathed; to keep what amounts to fraudulently obtained/stolen money; and bailed the thieving bankers out --- while letting THEM economically dissipate, losing houses, savings, 401(k)'s, and their jobs. Obama STILL doesn't get the jobs thing. When he starts messing around trying to make gun control a central issue at a time of serious economic hardship, the implication that the Government is going after private ownership of guns, is going to provoke a lot of hostilities, but that's just my view."
"His tall gaunt form, his grey locks floating in the breeze, and the color of his steed distinguishing him from the other Americans, and the British gave him the name of 'Death on the Pale Horse'.The utmost endeavors of his enemies to kill him were unavailing. He passed through the whole melee unscathed and unhurt. Once a bayonet charge drove the old man and the party with which he was acting to a distance from the foe, but he was out of ammunition and was then compelled to pick some up, but he ere long returned to the charge and this time killed an officer, and after that exploit, the report of his piece was frequently heard till the close of the fight. His powerful white horse careening at full speed over the hills with the dauntless old man on his back, was continuously seen. The British learned to dread the frequent appearances of this dire rider at unexpected points along he route of their passage, for his aim was true, and the economical principals in which he was trained forbade his wasting powder and ball."

"The American middle class is on the verge of collapse, at which point it will almost certainly revolt in some manner"
This last statement, according to Jared Taylor, is an abosolute lie. “Safety of the guests?” From what? From whom? The Communists thugs and the City Councilmen, apparently. Certainly not from American Renaissance. The opposition alone is making the threats, just like last year.

"It could also help provide cover to the regime globally (hitting the Egyptian Museum was smart in this respect, given how many people around the world care much more for the artifacts there than the freedom of 80 m Egyptians)."

“In response to reader Jason Whitworth’s query about a course in Western Civ for one who missed out on it the first time around, I would suggest the seminar reading list at St. John’s College, available at this link . There is Western civilization, laid out in all its glory. St. John’s is the best college most people have never heard of, where the humanities still flourish. Our eldest son is a student there now, and loves it. But if you can’t go there, the next best thing is to work through the readings on your own.”

Covering the ancient world through the age of technology, this illustrated lecture by Eugen Weber presents a tapestry of political and social events woven with many strands — religion, industry, agriculture, demography, government, economics, and art. A visual feast of over 2,700 images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art portrays key events that shaped the development of Western thought, culture, and tradition. This series is also valuable for teachers seeking to review the subject matter."

"The people of Montana are grateful to Senator Shockley for reminding the people that Montana’s legislators are primarily Montanans and only secondarily serve as occasional legislators. They do not have to specialize in American history or in Constitutional studies.
We are now told that because the North won the Civil War, the conclusion we all should draw from that is that Federal law trumps State law, “like it or not.” Somehow Lincoln managed to rewrite the Tenth Amendment by winning a war – or did he? Let us make a scenario."
"The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission reports that during the 2009-2010 hunting year North Carolina has 245,650 licensed hunters in the state.

Such a shame. Should be strung up.
"Looters broke into the Egyptian Museum during anti-government protests late on Friday and destroyed two Pharaonic mummies, Egypt's top archaeologist told state television.
"It has long been a Swiss tradition
To avoid any foreign wars
But to plan and promise perdition
To any foe at the door
The Swiss government trusts its people
To be patriots in deed and thought
And by trusting obtain the loyalty
On the level that can't be bought
They show trust by commending
The keeping of serious arms
In return they obtain a people
That keeps its country from harm
The Swiss may someday be vanquished
Though in two hundred years or more
Every invader deemed it
More trouble than it is worth
The same applies to the people
In certain united States
They seek no trouble abroad
But smite any foe they face
Some government gangs or agencies
Endeavor to try the resolve
These ventures will end in tears
For those who are too bold
For people of this free country
Much like the worthy Swiss
Don't fire unless molested
But then very seldom miss"
"Americans overall are far less likely to be killed with a firearm than they were when it was much more difficult to obtain a concealed-weapons permit, according to statistics collected by the federal Centers for Disease Control. But researchers have not been able to establish a cause-and-effect relationship.
In the 1980s and ’90s, as the concealed-carry movement gained steam, Americans were killed by others with guns at the rate of about 5.66 per 100,000 population. In this decade, the rate has fallen to just over 4.07 per 100,000, a 28 percent drop. The decline follows a fivefold increase in the number of “shall-issue” and unrestricted concealed-carry states from 1986 to 2006."

"Every time someone writes an article intimating that the South, in seceding, did indeed have a legal leg to stand on, a howling mob of plastic-patriot goons comes rushing out of the woodwork screaming 'TREASON!' In a blatantly transparent show of self-righteousness, they go trampling out the vintage where they think grapes of wrath are stored (it’s actually your fellow countrymen that you’re trampling on, not grapes) to show the world what patriotic Americans they are and how loyal they are to the American government. It is a show that long ago went “over the top,” and indeed, has come to disgust me.
To them, 'patriotism' means love of one’s government. Patriotism is not love of one’s government. It is love of one’s people, love of one’s home and love of one’s way of life - all of which constitute love of one’s country."

"I am incapable of seeing anything other than a consortium of kings and queens when I look at the Supreme Court. Despite their objections, they act as often irrationally and insanely as they do rationally. One good ruling that seems to represent the Constitution is obliterated by another that is pulled out of thin air or over-reliant on the vaguest clauses.
The Constitution was not vague, it was specific."

........when you hear about “spending cuts” and “austerity measures” and “shared sacrifice,” ask yourself the question: “What is being cut and who is sacrificing?” The answer: You will be asked to sacrifice and your salary is what is going to be cut through increased taxes.

It was January 1861, in the weeks between the state's decision to secede from the Union and the emergence of the Southern Confederacy, and South Carolina needed a national flag. A committee of legislators had been appointed to come up with the design and, on Jan. 21, 1861, the panel presented a proposal that "the National Flag or Ensign of South Carolina shall be white, with a green palmetto tree upright thereon; and the union blue, with a white increscent."
Is the Egyptian revolt going to become another “Iranian Revolution?” To be sure, there are forces who would love to see it, the Muslim Brotherhood, for one.
Whatever the cause of the revolt in Cairo, the Brotherhood has joined it. Protests have begun in Lebanon as well. Violence attracts more violence.
