"The Sainted Women of North Carolina"
 Women of the Confederacy by Augustus Lukeman, located on the grounds of the North Carolina State Capitol, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. Monument dedicated on June 10, 1914.

“The heroism of woman! How infinitely it surpasses that of man. 

With all her gentleness, and tenderness and natural timidity, in nine cases in ten,
she has more nerve than the other sex, in times of great emergency. With a bleeding
and bursting heart, she is capable of putting on the composure, and loving serenity
of an angel, binding up the wounds of a husband or son, and when he is restored
to health and vigor, buckling on his sword anew, and returning him to the battle-field.

Glorious women of the South! What an ordeal you have passed through, and how heroically
you have stood the trying test. You lost the liberty which your husbands, sires, and sons
struggled for, but only for a period. The blood which you have infused into the veins of
future generations will yet rise up to vindicate you, and “call you blessed.”

(Memories of Service Afloat, Semmes, LSU Press, pp. 79-80)

The Case That Could Topple Obamacare

Via Billy


Obamacare may have its problems, including more bugs than you can find in the cornfields of Nebraska, but its legal worries were meant to end after the Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate, the heart of the Affordable Care Act. 

Now, as the technologists charged with making work report progress, lawyers are re-entering the fray. A little-heard of challenge currently making its way through the court system may represent opponents’ last best hope of, as they are fond of saying, driving a stake through the heart of the law.

It all started in 2011, when Jonathan H. Adler, a conservative law professor at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio, shot an email to his friend Michael Cannon, a health policy expert at the libertarian Cato Institute in Washington, D.C. Adler thought he had spotted an error in Obamacare that could unravel a significant portion of the law.

Obama: Descendant Of Slave Owners

Via Billy

 Slave Trade

Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.

He has no real identity. He is half-white, which he rejects. The rest of him is mostly Arab, which he hides but is disclosed by his non-African Arabic surname and his Arabic first and middle names as a way to triply proclaim his Arabic parentage to people in Kenya . Only a small part of him is African Black from his Luo grandmother, which he portends he is exclusively.

What he isn’t, not a genetic drop of, is ‘African-American,’ the descendant of enslaved Africans brought to America chained in slave ships.

Burn The System To The Ground

Via The Vulgar Curmudgeon

Dated.  Can't believe I missed it.


"I'm a good judge" … said by government employee and judge Gisele Pollack who, it seems, sentenced people to jail because of their drug use…while she, herself, was high on drugs.

But, in her defense, "she’s had some severe personal tragedy in her life".
And that's why, it seems, she's being allowed to check herself into rehab instead of being thrown in jail.

…because not a single poor person or non government employee who gets caught using drugs ever "had some severe personal tragedy in her life".

I'm reminded of something I read earlier today:
We've discussed the whole "high court/low court" concept here a few times before — in that those who are powerful play by one set of rules, while the rest of us have to play by a very different set of rules.

The end result seems clear. If you're super high up in the political chain, you get the high court. Reveal classified info to filmmakers? No worries. Not only will you not be prosecuted or even lose your job, the inspectors will scrub your name from the report and, according to the article, the person in charge of the investigation will "slow roll" the eventual release of the report until you switch jobs.
But if you're just a worker bee and you leaked the unclassified draft report that names Panetta and Vickers? Well, you get the low court. A new investigation, including aggressive pursuit by the government, and interrogations of staffers to try to find out who leaked the report.
Twenty years ago I was a libertarian. I thought the system could be reformed. I thought that some parts of it "worked"… whatever that means. I thought that the goals were noble, even if not often achieved.

The older I get, the more I see, the more I read, the more clear it becomes to me that the entire game is rigged.

WWII Veteran: 90% of Congress Are Traitors To Our Country

 WWII Veteran: 90% of Congress Are Traitors To Our Country

World War II Airborne combat veteran Warenn (Renn) Bodeker, from Plains, Montana gives us an important message from his past experiences. Renn is a member of Oath Keepers, a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

That oath, mandated by Article VI of the Constitution itself, is to the Constitution, not to the politicians, and Oath Keepers declare that they will not obey unconstitutional orders, such as orders to disarm the American people, to conduct warrantless searches, or to detain Americans as “enemy combatants” in violation of their ancient right to jury trial.

Je$$e Jack$on: Phil Robertson Was Flaunting His “White Privilege”

The race-baiters had to get a piece of the action too. They couldn’t just let the tolerant, nonjudgmental, happy rainbow people soak up all the spotlight. Somehow, they had to make it sound like Phil Robertson’s comments about homosexuality and other forms of immorality and perversion weren’t exclusively “anti-gay,” but were also racist. So racist, that Phil Robertson is now worse than Rosa Parks’ bus driver.

From ABC News:

Mike Rogers, King Blast NYT Benghazi Report: 'Misleading'

Two of the House’s top experts on terrorism blasted a New York Times report that says al-Qaida did not carry out the 2012 attack on the U.S diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

The Times report, published Saturday and based on numerous interviews with Islamists in Benghazi, concludes that there was no evidence that al-Qaida or any other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012.

Instead, the Times reports that the attack was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made anti-Islamic video, as the Obama administration first claimed. The attackers were entirely locally based Islamist malcontents with few if any contacts outside of Libya.

But New York Rep. Peter King, member and former chairman of the House’s Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told Fox News that the story’s premise that other anti-American militias led the attack is at best academic.

“It’s misleading,” King said. “It’s a distinction without a difference.” King specifically challenged the notion in the Times piece that the Libya-based terror group Ansar al-Shariah somehow was not part of the al-Qaida Islamist network.

“Civil War” or War Between the States?”

The North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial   “Unsurpassed Valor, Courage and Devotion to Liberty”

Some contemporary historical sources in North Carolina continue to use the Northern term (and viewpoint) for the 1861-1865 conflict, "civil war,' though a North Carolina-specific commemoration of that period would properly use the terminology of the period – e.g.,  that of Alexander Stephens, Admiral Raphael Semmes and others. This website relates that historical period through the eyes and minds of North Carolinians then, and this is the only manner with which we can today understand those who preceded us in time. Below the reader will find our reasons for using the proper historical term, the one which North Carolinians would use to describe that struggle for independence. 

The Phrase “Civil War”

“A civil war is a war between citizens of the same state contending for control of the same government. The war between the North and South was the war of the North against a separate government, that as long as it lasted was a de facto nation, exercising all the powers of an independent government. 

The term “civil war” concedes all that the North ever claimed, makes [the South] guilty of treason, and is untrue to the facts in the case.  [The] term “civil war,” while incorrect as a simple definition of the struggle, does a gross injustice to the South by degrading her struggle for a national existence into a partisan conflict.  I never use it and mark it out of every book where I find it.  Let history tell the truth.”  

(“The Phrase “Civil War,” Rev. S.A. Steel, Jackson, Tenn., Confederate Veteran, July 1912, pg. 347)

How political correctness took down Navy SEALs

How political correctness took down Navy SEALs

The night of Sept. 1, 2009, Echo Platoon of Navy SEAL Team 10 headed out into the Fallujah night.

Their goal: concluding a five-year search for the al Qaeda killer who had been responsible for the shocking 2004 murders of four American military contractors — one of them an ex-SEAL — whose bodies were then burned, dragged through the streets and hanged from a bridge.

This night the SEALs departed with these words from their commanding officer: “Gents, stay sharp, and expect a firefight.”

In the event, no shots were fired, but the SEALs faced another kind of ambush: a humiliating, baffling, infuriating struggle with the military-justice system that would end with an unsatisfying victory.

Because the man those SEALs captured — Ahmad Hashim Abd Al-Isawi, aka “the Butcher of Fallujah,” a man who lived for mayhem — somehow sustained a bloody lip on the night of his capture.

When your loved ones get hurt or killed


For man to have family means lot of things. Family means a lot of work and worries, but also a lot of happiness. A good family means support when you are having problems or you are in some difficult periods of your life of course.

When SHTF it can work in both ways too, bad and good, but definitely having family will help you more than being alone.

I mentioned many times why it is better to be with other (close) people when SHTF then to be alone. My course where I talk in detail about my experiences in war has many situations that I would not have survived without my family.

There is one other side to that, during SHTF when anarchy and fighting for survival means violence and you see people close to you get hurt or killed.

If you don’t like history, ban it

I get weary listening to the “ ban everything Confederate” crowd because of the claim they were all slave owners or fighting for slavery in spite of many reasons to the contrary. The real reason they still beat this dead horse 150 years later is for political leverage and gain. The sad thing is, it works.

If we are going to ban everything and everyone associated with the Confederacy, let’s not stop there. Let’s strike from history and the public’s view that slavery happened in America. George Washington, the father of the United States and our first president, owned slaves. Ban him. Thomas Jefferson owned slaves. Ban him. Ban from history every American who ever owned a slave.

Let’s just ban all history and everything connected with it prior to 1865 or rewrite it to say they were all black or any color but white. We can even say Christopher Columbus was a black man who discovered America. Or let’s rewrite it all and say that blacks are the ones who discovered, designed, built and maintained America to and that they brought whites here as slaves.

This is exactly what the communists did to Russian history when they overthrew the tsars. They rewrote it or totally abolished it. Perhaps this would finally quell the screaming over certain parts of America’s history that our American Marxists find offensive or disagree with. However, I suspect they would find some other expedient excuse to make political hay over. When does the book burning begin?

If you celebrate the New Year anywhere near the South, you're probably going to be enjoying black-eyed peas in some form. If you don't already know, you're taking part in a tradition dating back to the War Between The States days. Once considered only suitable for livestock fodder and food for slaves, fields of black-eyed peas, fortunately, were ignored by Gen. Sherman's troops as they stormed the South, and became a food staple for surviving Confederates.
