Blunt Facts Openly Stated and Faced


Lincoln’s emancipation proclamation was not original and copied Lord Dunmore’s edict freeing slaves in 1775 Virginia for the purpose of arming slaves and inciting the murder of colonial Americans.  British Vice Admiral Sir Alexander Cochrane would do the same on April 2, 1814, proclaiming all slaves freed in order to cripple the American war effort. 

Bernhard Thuersam, Chairman
North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission

Blunt Facts Openly Stated and Faced:

“The Emancipation Proclamation, an incredible act, must be laid wholly to Lincoln and the small group of fanatical Abolitionists and radicals whose hatred of the South and of Southern people seems to have known no bounds. It disgusted the majority of Northern citizens and was out of favor even with the troops who were fighting Lincoln’s war at the hearthstones of the South. 

It was characterized in Northern thought as the act of “an absolute, irresponsible monarch.” Justice Curtis of the United States Supreme Court, who had dissented in the Dred Scott case, publicly called it an unconstitutional act issued without legal right by the President. North and West it was denounced. In a speech against conscription and arbitrary arrests, Governor Horatio Seymour of New York declared it a “proposal for the butchery of women and children, for arson and murder, for lust and rapine.” 

Truly it could not have emanated from a “great” man. Governor Seymour reminded Lincoln that the war was supposedly being fought solely to suppress “rebellion,” not to change the social system of the United States. [President] Jefferson Davis thought: “Our own detestation of those who have attempted the most execrable measure recorded in the history of guilty man, is tempered by profound contempt for the impotent rage it discloses.” 

What Abraham Lincoln stood for, what Jefferson Davis stood for, culminated in a terrible civil war, an Emancipation, a “Reconstruction,” and three unconstitutional so-called amendments forced upon the Constitution and upon the American people along with an exasperating race problem – all be perversion of the form of government; by dictatorship and armed might, lawless and utterly ruthless, bringing ruin and desolation to half the country of that day, initiated by “reformers” and intermeddlers.  These are blunt facts, some never before openly stated and faced, in our history.”

North Carolina Patriots of ’61 – Colonel Hector M. McKethan of Cumberland County

51st Reg't 
10:00  Hector McKethan, Colonel

The son of Alfred Augustus and Loveday Campbell McKethan, he was born 15 September 1834 in Cumberland County; his mother was the daughter of Reverend James Campbell of Pennsylvania. A prosperous carriage maker in his father’s Fayetteville business prior to 1861, Hector entered the service of his State as a member of the Fayetteville Independent Light Infantry, (FILI), with the rank of third lieutenant. Engaged at Bethel Church in Virginia with Company H (FILI) of the First North Carolina Volunteers under Captain Wright Huske, McKethan would later rise to the rank of Colonel of the 51st North Carolina Regiment which was organized at Wilmington in April, 1862.  

The 51st was comprised of men from New Hanover and Brunswick, the “Warsaw Sampsons” from Duplin and Sampson counties, the “Duplin Stars,” Robeson county’s “Scotch Tigers,” the “Clay Valley Rangers” and “Ashpole True Boy”s of Robeson county, the “Columbus Light Infantry”, and Sampson’s “Confederate Stars.” First commanded by Col. John Lucas Cantwell of Wilmington, the regiment saw action in South Carolina at Battery Wagner; in Virginia at Petersburg, Second Cold Harbor, and Fort Harrison, where McKethan received a serious wound.

After the Battery Wagner battle, McKethan wrote: “[Our] line was unbroken during the entire fight, and was successfully defended from three separate assaults made on it by the enemy, and their dead and wounded are the surest evidence of the precision with which we fired. The first assault [led by the 54th Massachusetts Regiment [colored] was made about 8 PM…the enemy was three times repulsed from the front of my line, [I] directed my fire to rake the ditch and the outer portion of the work at that point, and am convinced that our fire must have been very destructive….the action continued until 11:30PM, when the firing ceased.  [My] heavy loss is an evidence of the readiness with which the men exposed themselves.” 

At Petersburg in June of 1864, McKethan’s 51st North Carolina (in Clingman’s Brigade) formed part of the 15,000 Southern soldiers defending the city against 75,000 enemy troops –  and is credited with helping to seal a dangerous enemy penetration of the line with a bayonet charge and hand to hand fighting with muskets used as clubs.  

He succeeded Col. Cantwell to regimental command, and then assumed command of the wounded Gen. Thomas Clingman’s Brigade under Gen. Robert F. Hoke during the campaign from Fort Fisher, to Southwest Creek and Bentonville. It was Col. McKethan and Clingman’s Brigade at the battle of Forks Road below Wilmington which helped repulse three enemy assaults; the latter got no closer than 150 yards from McKethan’s line. 

Col. McKethan returned to the old Fayetteville home of his parents where he lived unmarried until his death on 6 November 1881, and is buried in Cross Creek Cemetery, Fayetteville. His obituary from the Laurinburg Enterprise reads: “Death of Col. Hector McKethan, the brave commander of the 51st N.C. Regiment…died at the residence of his father in Fayetteville last Sunday afternoon. He was a brave soldier, a discreet and valiant commander, and distinguished himself on many a bloody battle field. Having the esteem of his soldiers, they followed his lead and obeyed his command with a readiness which fully attested their devotion….More than once did he return from bloody contests with but a small number of those courageous fellows who entered with him.  Brave and generous as he was, he is gone. Peace to his ashes; and may his surviving comrades, who laid him to rest at the tomb with military honors, see that his grave is kept green!”

Shooter's mother to restaurant owner: Son had Asperger syndrome

 ht Adam lanza sandy hook bug 121214 wblog LIVE UPDATES: Newtown, Conn., School Shooting
 Adam Lanza, seen here in 2005

A lone gunman shot and killed his mother, then drove to the school where she reportedly taught and went on a shooting rampage Friday morning, killing 26 people, including 20 children, before turning a gun on himself.

The shooter was identified by the Associated Press as Adam Lanza, 20, who was found dead inside Sandy Hook Elementary School of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The incident -- among the worst school shootings in U.S. history -- is the latest in a series of mass shootings in the U.S. this year, including Tuesday's assault by a lone gunman at a Portland, Ore., shopping mall that left two dead and one wounded.

Three weapons were found — a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both pistols, inside the school, and a .223-caliber rifle in the back of a car.

A federal law enforcement official said the guns had been legally bought and registered by the shooter's 52-year-old mother, Nancy Lanza, USA TODAY's Kevin Johnson reported.

The AP described her as a teacher at the school, although USA TODAY could not independently confirm the report.

Ryan Lanza, the suspect's 24-year-old brother, was questioned by law enforcement in Hoboken, N.J., and said Adam was believed to suffer from a personality disorder. He told police that he had not been in touch with his brother since about 2010.

China school knife attack leaves 23 injured


A man wielding a knife attacked students Friday at a school in central China, leaving 22 children and one adult injured, according to state-run media reports.

The attack occurred at the gate of an elementary school in the village of Chengping, in Henan Province. Police arrested the attacker, who they identified as local resident Min Yingjun, 36.
Children as young as six were among those hospitalized after the attack, suffering injuries including slashes to the ears and head.

An official at Guangshan Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital, the local facility, told CBS News at least two students had been transferred to the larger city of Wuhan, not far from Chengping, for treatment. The editor of the local newspaper which first reported the story said none of the children had injuries severe enough to threaten their lives.

The attack marks the latest in a series of violent assaults at elementary schools in China. In 2010, a total of 18 children were killed in four separate attacks. On March 23 of that year, Zheng Minsheng attacked children at an elementary school in Fujian Province, killing eight.

One month later, just a few hours after Zheng Minsheng was executed for his crime, another man, Chen Kanbing wounded 16 students and a teacher in a knife attack at another primary school in Fujian. The following month, on May 12, a man named Wu Huangming killed seven children and two adults with a meat cleaver at a kindergarten in Shaanxi Province. That attack was followed by an August 4 assault by Fang Jiantang, who killed three children and one teacher with a knife at a kindergarten in Shandong Province.

In 2011, a young girl and three adults were killed with an axe at an elementary school in Henan Province by a 30-year-old man named Wang Hongbin, and eight children were hurt in Shanghai after an employee at a child care center attacked them with a box cutter.

Another School Shooting, Another Psychiatric Drug? Federal Investigation Long Overdue

Via Terry



Fact: Despite 22 international drug regulatory warnings on psychiatric drugs citing effects of mania, hostility, violence and even homicidal ideation, and dozens of high profile shootings/killings tied to psychiatric drug use, there has yet to be a federal investigation on the link between psychiatric drugs and acts of senseless violence.

Fact: At least fourteen recent school shootings were committed by those taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs resulting in 109 wounded and 58 killed (in other school shootings, information about their drug use was never made public—neither confirming or refuting if they were under the influence of prescribed drugs.)

Fact: Between 2004 and 2011, there have been over 11,000 reports to the U.S. FDA’s MedWatch system of psychiatric drug side effects related to violence.  These include 300 cases of homicide, nearly 3,000 cases of mania and over 7,000 cases of aggression.  Note:  By the FDA’s own admission, only 1-10% of side effects are ever reported to the FDA, so the actual number of side effects occurring are most certainly higher.

Of the 14 shooters documented to be under the influence of psychiatric drugs,  seven were seeing either a psychiatrist or psychologist.  See the list of school shooters on psychiatric drugs here:
School shooters aren’t the only cases commonly found to  be under the influence of psychiatric drugs, here is a list of 10 more recent  murders and murder-suicides, committed by individuals taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs  resulting in  an additional 43  dead and 37  wounded.

A settler sends off for a wife

Via Southern Nationalist Network

A prospering settler in the West Indies, feeling the need of a wife, ordered from London along with his annual supplies by next ship “a young woman of the qualifications and form following: As for a portion I demand none, let her be of an honest family; between twenty and twenty-five years of age; of a middle stature and well proportioned; her face agreeable, her temper mild, her character blameless, her health good, and her constitution strong enough to bear the change of the climate. …If she arrives and conditioned as above said, with the present letter endorsed by you, …that there may be no imposition, I hereby oblige and engage myself to satisfy the said letter by marrying the bearer at fifteen days sight.”
The agent promptly sent a maiden who carried the document endorsed, along with certificates of temper, character and health from neighbors, her curate and four physicians; and in due time the twain were made one.

The Rebel Jesus

Via T

by Jackson Browne.

All the streets are filled with laughter and light
And the music of the season
And the merchants' windows are all bright
With the faces of the children
And the families hurrying to their homes
While the sky darkens and freezes
Will be gathering around the hearths and tables
Giving thanks for God's graces
And the birth of the rebel Jesus

Well they call him by 'the Prince of Peace'
And they call him by 'the Savior'
And they pray to him upon the seas
And in every bold endeavor
And they fill his churches with their pride and gold
As their faith in him increases
But they've turned the nature that I worship in
From a temple to a robber's den
In the words of the rebel Jesus

Well we guard our world with locks and guns
And we guard our fine possessions
And once a year when Christmas comes
We give to our relations
And perhaps we give a little to the poor
If the generosity should seize us
But if any one of us should interfere
In the business of why there are poor
They get the same as the rebel Jesus

Now pardon me if I have seemed
To take the tone of judgement
For I've no wish to come between
This day and your enjoyment
In a life of hardship and of earthly toil
There's a need for anything that frees us
So I bid you pleasure
And I bid you cheer
From a heathen and a pagan
On the side of the rebel Jesus

School Shootings and No Gun Zones


In my world I would require that all teachers and school administrators get a concealed carry permit and then qualify each semester. Parents with concealed carry permits would be encouraged to carry to and from and in the school. 

I would post a billboard at the entrance to the school grounds stating the carry policy. I would make mandatory safe handling of firearms classes and optional marksmanship classes at the on grounds range. 

Disarming the population makes the environment less safe for the law abiding citizens and safer for the criminals and crazies out there.

Jacob Roberts, the Oregon mall shooter, and the shooter(s) at the Connecticut elementary school, share a common trait: they committed irrational and inexplicable murders.

This may seem like an obvious fact, but it holds the key to understanding what is going on. You don’t look for an ordinary motive. Therefore, what are we dealing with?

It’s easy to say, “They were crazy,” or “Who cares why they did it,” but that gets you nowhere.

We have to shake off our own conditioning to these repetitive murders. We have to shake off the idea that “they just keep happening” and instead look below the surface.

First and foremost, we have to consider the possibility that SSRI antidepressants like Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft were in play. The drugs have been well studied. They do, in fact, push people far over the edge, scramble neurotransmitter systems, and result in patients committing suicides and murders.

My extensive school-shooting report, written a decade ago, lays out the facts about these drugs, and also about the amphetamine-type drugs prescribed for ADHD, like Ritalin:

Hate Gun Control

Via Paul

Have at him, boys.

There is clearly no reason to have even a discussion about guns in our society.  There is no problem.  To even suggest having a conversation about this issue is to throw away the very Constitution itself.  This document from the late 1700s was clearly intended to make sure deranged individuals had the same access to weapons with capabilities well beyond the imaginations of the Founding Fathers as any normal well adjusted citizen.  Thomas Jefferson would have been 100% on board with a 20 year old fuck up having more firepower than an entire company of professional soldiers from when he wrote that document.  Why wouldn’t he?  In fact, why are we all so touchy about nuclear weapons?  Why are my constitutional rights being violated?  Why can’t I have an intercontinental nuclear ballistic missle?  That is complete bullshit.

The Federal Government is Guilty Accomplice in School Shooting in Newtown Connecticut



There has been a horrendous mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.   At this time, 27 people are reported dead, most of them children.

This shooting is yet another tragic example of the failed, grotesque insistence on helpless victim zones where any crazed gunman can be assured of a large number of disarmed, undefended, helpless victims, all crammed into one place, where he can kill many children before an armed defender arrives from elsewhere.

It is disturbing and sick that the federal government so hates the right of the American people to bear arms, and so hates their natural right to self defense, that the government insists on making them helpless, disarmed victims for anyone who cares to kill them.   And in this case, all of the teachers and staff were willfully disarmed by the Federal Government, by force of law and threat of prison, to ensure that they would be disarmed and incapable of saving the lives of the children entrusted to their care.

That makes the Federal Government complicit in the deaths of these children, and in fact an accessory to their mass murder, by forcibly disarming (with the very real threat of prison) all the teachers, all the staff, and any parent who may have been on school property.  That stupid law guaranteed the shooters would meet no immediate armed resistance, which is exactly what is needed to stop such an attack.

In such a shooting (as in every criminal attack), seconds count, and the people best positioned to stop the attack are the people on the scene – the intended victims and/or their care-takers.  In this case, that would mean the teachers and staff of the school who were responsible for the well-being of those children, and also the parents, who should have the ability to save the lives of their own children as they take them to and from school.

The police cannot, and do not arrive in time to stop such shooters from killing large numbers of people.  They are a slow reactive force compared to an armed citizen on the scene.   This should be common sense, as it is obvious that in the immediacy of a criminal attack, it is the intended victims (or their immediate care-takers) who are there, in position to put a stop to the attack, if they are capable.  And being capable means being armed, trained, willing, and able to use deadly force, right then, right there.  Anything less leads to what we saw here.

But no doubt the rabid anti-gun government supremacists will use this to further their agenda to disarm the American people, totally ignoring that obvious, plain-as-day truth.   Anti-gun nuts trust the government with guns, but not the people, and insist that the lowly citizen must be disarmed and helpless in the face of murderous assault, and must wait on slow responding armed government employees, who will not be there when the attack starts, and most often can only really clean up the horrendous crime scene afterwards and maybe, just maybe apprehend a shooter who has chosen not to kill himself (as they usually do).

The bottom line is that these teachers and staff at the Sandy Hook Elementary School were incapable of keeping these children safe, and incapable of defending them.  And one of the biggest reasons they were so incapable and unprepared to save the lives of the children entrusted to their care is because the anti-gun nuts and their fellow travelers in government insisted on disarming every adult in the vicinity, by threatening them with prison time – EXCEPT the gunmen, who don’t care about the law and thus were not disarmed.    laws against carrying weapons in schools don’t stop evil men with murderous intent.  Such laws only disarm the law abiding and virtuous, who are now rendered incompetent to defend the precious children in their care.

This is disgusting.  And yet another reason to home-school.  Why would you want to leave your children helpless, in the hands of adults who are  themselves helpless, and incapable of defending them, by government decree?  For all we know, one of the teachers may have been a veteran, with the training and skill to use a firearm if one had been available.  But all the teachers and staff, whatever their ability with firearms, were stripped of the choice and chance to save the lives of these kids.

There are more good guys than bad guys in the world.  But the good guys need to be able to stop the bad guys, and that means  they need to be armed so they can stop the bad guys on the spot, without having to wait for “official” government approved good guys to respond.  Trust the teachers with arms so they can save the lives of their students.

Until the adults are allowed to actually act like adults, and defend themselves and their students, this kind of willful killing will continue to happen, and the federal government will in each case be a guilty party to the conspiracy by ensuring that the targets are disarmed.

Until this changes, you should refuse to give your children over to government schools lorded over by a Federal Government so callous and indifferent to their safety and lives.

Washington Post Scolds Dems For Offering No Spending Cuts





DEMOCRATS LIKE TO say that they are for “balance” in the fiscal debate and that Republicans favor spending cuts. That argument is increasingly difficult to credit.

Since the election last month, a few modest proposals have been floated to slow the growth in entitlement spending. None of these would fix the problem, but they would at least acknowledge that a problem exists. One by one, the ostensible advocates of balance have shot them down, portraying each in turn as a mortal threat to the poor or the aged.

Nudging the Medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67, which President Obama supported last year? Unconscionable. Changing the way cost-of-living adjustments are calculated, which Mr. Obama also supported? Brutally unfair to veterans and seniors. Reform of Medicaid provider taxes, which liberal Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) only days ago described as a “charade” used by states to jack up funding from Washington? Unthinkable, the White House now says:In fact, with the Supreme Court having struck down a facet of Mr. Obama’s Affordable Care Act involving Medicaid, nothing in that program can be touched. And, while they’re at it, put Social Security off the table, too. We’re asked to accept the mythology that, though the pension and disability program is facing ever-widening shortfalls, it isn’t contributing to the overall deficit.

Marine double-amputee’s treatment on Delta flight angers other vets


On Dec. 13, 2011, Marine Lance Cpl. Christian Brown was leading his squad on a foot patrol in Afghanistan’s Helmand province when he stepped on an explosive device that blew off both his legs, one above the knee, the other below his hip. He also lost part of his right index finger.

Last Sunday, almost exactly a year since those grievous injuries forced him to learn to walk on two successive pairs of prosthetic legs, Brown was “humiliated” to the point of tears on a Delta flight from Atlanta to Washington after being clumsily wheeled to the back row of the plane, according to a complaint sent to the airline by an outraged fellow passenger.

 Worse yet, according to retired Army Col. Nickey Knighton’s detailed “customer care” report to Delta, efforts by several fellow vets to shift Brown from coach to a first class seat offered by another flyer, were rebuffed by the crew. Flight attendants insisted no one could move through the cabin because the doors were being closed for takeoff, she wrote.

 Knighton, a former helicopter pilot with nearly 30 years of service, who turned out to be seated in the same back row as Brown, assumed that because he boarded last, he would be seated up front for comfort and ease of exit in case of emergency. Instead, she wrote in a complaint obtained by “She The People,” he was squeezed into a narrow aviation wheelchair that “bumped up against stationary aisle seats as he was wheeled through the aircraft. [He] was obviously humiliated by being paraded through the aircraft and was visibly upset. I touched Brown on his shoulders and asked if he was okay. Tears ran down his face, but he did not cry out loud.”

 What Knighton did not tell Delta, perhaps because she did not know, was that Brown, 29, was also very ill with a high fever. He was returning, via Atlanta, from a hunting trip in Alabama for injured service members to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md.  Injured on his second deployment to Afghanistan after joining the Marines in April, 2009, Brown has spent nearly a year at the complex outside Washington, D.C.

‘Hot Dog Guy’ Recalls Attack By Union Mob: ‘It Was Crazy’

TARVER: Yes, at 10:00 in the morning, I set up to sell hot dogs. And about 10:30, I was ready to sell hot dogs. I was ready to give away hot dogs. Everyone had to have a ticket to receive a hot dog.
So at I guess about 11:30, maybe a quarter to 12, when these two guys came into the tent, and one was wearing the mask, looks like a devil’s mask. The other one was wearing a ski mask. And so you know, I thought they were just having some fun. You know, it was just a — you know, just fun.
So the guy took their masks off. They had a ticket. I gave them a hot dog. As soon as they got through eating their hot dogs, about three minutes later, they started tearing — turning over the coffee pots, the urns, about four of them. The table — they turned the table turned over.

27 dead in shooting at Connecticut elementary school

Twenty-seven people, including 18 children, have been killed in a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, according to the Associated Press.

The report cites an official with knowledge of the situation.

Sources told The Courant that there are at least 20 shooting victims. Many of the shootings took place in a kindergarten classroom, sources said.
One entire classroom is unaccounted for, sources said.
A person believed to be a shooter is dead. Earlier reports of a second shooter are unconfirmed.
Three people were brought to Danbury Hospital, but their condition is unknown. The emergency room is on lockdown.

Police were still searching the school at 11 a.m., and police dogs had been brought in. Around noon, the triage area was broken down, stretchers were taken away and the SWAT team left the building.
Shortly after 9:40 a.m., police reported that a shooter was in the main office of the school. A person in one room had “numerous gunshot wounds,” police said.

Groups of students — some crying, some holding hands — were being escorted away from the school by their teachers. Some students were still in the school at 10:30 a.m., parents said.

School and local emergency officials are accounting for the children, who will be released to their parents to get them home. A staging area has been set up at the Sandy Hook fire department, directly in front of the school.

Frustrated parents are trying to get information from officials, who were still actively searching the school.

Vanessa Bajraliu, a 9-year-old fourth grader, heard the shots.

"I saw policemen -- lots of policemen in the hallway with guns," she said. "The police took us out of the school. We were told to hold each others' hands and to close our eyes. We opened our eyes when we were outside."

If you ever get to Little Washington, NC don't miss Bill's.  You'll have to wait and pay cash, but the chili is the best.
