The Despot’s Heel Was On Thy Shore


Maryland is steeped in the history of the American Union. She fiercely defended her position amongst the thirteen original states as a free, independent, and sovereign state. She was the last to accede to The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union. The first article of the Maryland Declaration of Rights states, “That all Government of right originates from the People, is founded in compact only, and instituted solely for the good of the whole; and they have, at all times, the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their Form of Government in such manner as they may deem expedient.” [Emphasis added.]

Powerful words indeed!

Maryland’s tradition of self-governance and self-determination was laid bare as state legislatures and conventions met to determine the fate of their role in the Federal Union as conceived by their forefathers. Maryland along with nearly every northern and southern state fully comprehended the right of the people of each state to freely accede to join the Union as well as the right to secede from the Union. Eventually, eleven states seceded from the Union by May 1861.

Penguin swims 5,000 miles every year for reunion with the man who saved his life

Via Sister Anne

Today’s most heartwarming story is brought to you from a beach in Brazil.

It’s the story of a South American Magellanic penguin who swims 5,000 miles each year to be reunited with the man who saved his life.

Retired bricklayer and part time fisherman Joao Pereira de Souza, 71, who lives in an island village just outside Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, found the tiny penguin, covered in oil and close to death, lying on rocks on his local beach in 2011.

Joao cleaned the oil off the penguin’s feathers and fed him a daily diet of fish to build his strength. He named him Dindim.

 Humiliation: Ms Merkel was mocked by a carnival float showing her weighed down by her humanitarian politics

German voters turned to the far right in droves yesterday in a damning verdict on Angela Merkel’s open door border policy.

In regional elections she was humiliated by the anti-immigrant AfD – Alternative for Germany – party.

Formed just three years ago, it has surged in popularity following Mrs Merkel’s decision to roll out the red carpet for more than a million migrants. 

Frauke Petry, who leads the Eurosceptic party, has suggested German border guards should open fire on illegal immigrants.

Liberal Media Hacks: Trump Canceled Chicago Rally Because “HIS SUPPORTERS Became Violent”

Via Billy

trump post dispatch

This is the kind of crap propaganda that we have to live with in the country today.

“Donald Trump addresses a campaign rally in St. Louis. he was scheduled to go to Chicago for a rally, but canceled after his supporters became violent.” And, the mainstream media wonders why they keep losing subscriptions?

I have been watching, this weekend, all the fuss over the Communist groups that managed to break up Trump's rally in Chicago. From Communist groups you expect this sort of thing. Since they can't intelligently debate their corrupt points their only alternative is to shout down their adversaries and try to shut them down and them blame their adversaries for it. This is the standard bill of fare for the lefties, proving that they really have nothing worthwhile to contribute and can get by with blaming the opposition for that fact.

What surprised me, though, was the people over on the right who spouted the exact same line the lefties did. Communist groups broke up Trump's rally and it was all Trump's fault according to many that are supposed to be "right-wingers." Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio were among the headliners in this dog and pony show and when you begin to see "conservative" candidates pushing the same line at Hillary and Bernie you have to know something is wrong, dreadfully wrong.

What more could you ask for than the great Johnny Rivers? Back when men were men and damsels were in distress. I really got into Johnny Rivers listening to him in the bars of Bien Hoa in 1967 - 1968.

Must See! Black Pastor BRINGS DOWN THE HOUSE at Trump Cleveland Rally!

Via Billy

On Saturday, March 12, 2016, Pastor Darrell Scott of New Spirit Revival Center Ministries in Ohio spoke to the Trump crowd before Donald Trump arrived from his earlier rally in Dayton.

Pastor Scott introduced Donald Trump at the rally in Cleveland, Ohio and BROUGHT DOWN THE HOUSE!
Only God could take a black guy from inner city streets of Cleveland and connect him with a white billionaire from upstate New York to try to do what we can do to make the country great again!
This was an amazing speech!

Jeff Sessions to GOP: Time to Unite Behind Trump, Beat Hillary

Via Billy


Influential Alabama Senator Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), who has emerged as the preeminent thought leader of the conservative nation-state movement, told voters that “now is the time for the GOP” to unite behind Donald Trump’s realignment of the Republican Party, and “embrace this opportunity to win working Americans on a platform of rising wages, American jobs, and the national interest.”

Sessions said that Trump is the only candidate who will be able to stop Obamatrade and enact trade deals that prioritize the interests of the American people. Sessions delivered a clear warning to Ohio voters in particular.

“The TPP will hammer the automobile industry in Ohio and American workers nationwide,” Sessions declared. At Thursday night’s debate, Trump “stood alone in his consistent opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership and foreign currency manipulation,” Sessions said.

Did the "Stop Trump" meeting at Sea Island program the violent, bloody protests in Chicago?

Via comment by indyjonesouthere on American Revolution 2.0

(Above posted previously concerning Sea Island)


Is The American Establishment Trying To Get Donald Trump Assassinated?
(Whatever it takes, I am sure.)

After Trump won the Michigan and Missouri primaries with strong numbers, the establishment went into panic mode. They arranged a meeting between execs of top technology companies Apple, Facebook, and Google, and the members of the GOP establishment including Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Ben Sasse and Kevin McCarthy.

The conspirators met on a private island off the coast of Georgia called Sea Island. Their goal? To plot how to stop the GOP front runner—Donald Trump. We don’t know what plans the elite concocted at this meeting because it was invitation-only. However, we may glean the nature of the plan from the events that followed.


 Readers of ROK should not get pulled into the fray. Be ready to defend your family and your community, but resist the urge to act offensively. Instead, prepare yourself by building a strong, local tribe of men because if the elites are successful in eliminating Trump, the resulting fire may engulf the entire nation.

American Revolution 2.0


Unless you were fortunate enough to be hiding under a rock for the last twenty-four hours, you know that a planned Donald Trump rally in Chicago turned into a violent riot instigated by MoveOn, George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Bernie Sanders supporters.

What common factor do these groups share? They are all Leftist. As liberal democracy has spent itself into oblivion, debilitating its economies, and simultaneously made a series of horrible leadership decisions under leaders like Barack Obama and former Communist Angela Merkel, people have become desperate. And now their divisions are showing.

Game ON: the end of the old economic system is in sight
Google is a pioneer in limited artificial general intelligence (aka computers that can learn w/o preprogramming them). One successful example is AlphaGo.  It just beat this Go Grandmaster three times in a row.  
What makes this win interesting is that AlphaGo didn't win through brute force.  Go is too complicated for that:
...the average 150-move game contains more possible board configurations — 10170 — than there are atoms in the Universe, so it can’t be solved by algorithms that search exhaustively for the best move.
It also didn't win by extensive preprogramming by talented engineers, like IBM's Deep Blue did to win at Chess.  
Instead, AlphaGo won this victory by learning how to play the game from scratch using this process:


This is the monument to my great grandfather, John Pelopidus Leach. It was erected at the time of his death in 1914 and depicts two hands shaking, one black and one white, with the inscription: "This Is What He Meant - All Men Up, Erected By His Colored Friends."

When he was nineteen years of age, Private Leach surrendered at Appomattox and walked home to North Carolina with his black friend and companion, Needham Leach. Later in life, Private Leach represented Warren County as a State Senator in 1892 and as the Presiding Judge of the Criminal Court of the same county from 1892 to 1896. He continued to love and cherish the Confederate Battle Flag until the day he died. During those years he offered free firewood to those in need and divided land into smaller than normal size lots and sold them at reduced rates to enable the poor to be become homeowners. He also donated the land for the Enon Baptist Church (Black) in Littleton. 

Lee's Surrender, By My Great Grandfather

Black Mammy & Black Confederate Soldier In My Family


Dated and re-posted as original link went bad.


By Luci Weldon, The Warren Record

If you were driving down the road and saw a black man carrying a  Confederate flag, what would your reaction be?

Many of us would have to admit that we would be surprised to say the  least because the sight of a Confederate flag is likely to spark  strong emotions. To some, the symbol represents a part of the
honorable history of people who held high principles. To others, the  flag represents only hatred and oppression.

At times, these opposing viewpoints reach the forefront of discussion  such as in the case of whether clothing depicting the Confederate  flag is appropriate to wear to public school.

Asheville resident H.K. Edgerton, a black man, has proudly carried  the Confederate flag over many, many miles in his mission to educate  people of all races and ages about southern history so that
southerners will be proud of their heritage.

On Monday, that mission brought him to Littleton and the start of a  160-mile march to Richmond, Va. He plans to travel about 15 miles a  day, five days per week, all while carrying a Confederate flag.

"In Richmond, Virginia, the DuPont Company has banned Confederate  symbols from their plant and have ignored requests to honor  Confederate soldiers buried on their property, and this in the former
capital city of the Confederate States of America," he said.

Edgerton serves as chairman of the board of advisors of Southern  Legal Resource Center, Inc., which has an office in Black Mountain,  and has been active with that organization for about seven years.

He  is also the immediate past president of the Asheville NAACP and is a  life member of the NAACP.

A retired engineer, Edgerton and his brother later owned and operated  an office products company in Fullerton, Calif.

Edgerton chose to begin his march at a monument located at Mosby  Avenue in Littleton which honors Confederate Private John Leach,  described as a pioneer in southern race relations. The monument is  inscribed, "This is what he meant - All men up! Erected by his  Colored Friends."

"I am very proud to call myself a Confederate American," he said. "I  want to educate folks about our wonderful heritage. You can't find  more honorable people than southerners."

He added that others are "trying to divide black people and white  people."

"We are a family in the Southland of America," Edgerton said. "I  caution you that if you don't know your history, you can't know where  you are going."

As he began his march on Monday morning, he wore a Dixie Outfitters  shirt and Dixie Outfitters jeans.

"What they want to do is tell the truth about southern heritage," he  said, describing the owner of the company as "one of the finest  gentlemen that I know."

Perhaps most of all, Edgerton hopes that young people of all races in the south will learn more about their history and be proud of that  history.

"Our babies now don't know history," he said. "Southern people have  always been some of the most patriotic, God-loving people in the  country."

The journey which began Monday is not Edgerton's first march. In  fact, he completed a 1,600-mile March across Dixie as well as a 260- mile march to attend the Confederate submarine Hunley funeral in  South Carolina.

"When I walked to Texas, the deeper I traveled in the south, more  black people came out to recall history, to talk about their heritage  and their love for the south, all the black men who played a part in  the (Civil) war, honorable men in the war," Edgerton said. "Black  Confederates who earned places of honor are not talked about in the  Civil War. It baffles me how you can talk about Black History Month  and not Confederate History Month."

He noted that the heritage of southerners includes helping one another.

"The people of the south have always been a family together, then  people tried to separate us," Edgerton said. "We are still a family here."

He went on to praise the "Christian white folks of the south."

"Blacks and whites are a family in the south," he said. "Whites have  always been proud to see black people advance. It is now time for  people to know our honorable heritage. I'm going to Richmond to
reclaim the heritage of our honorable people."

Edgerton, describing the Confederate flag as the Christian cross of  St. Andrew, added that others, such as the Ku Klux Klan, have caused  an incorrect meaning to be associated with this symbol.

"History has been twisted around," he said. "It is time for all to  know the truth, and our black babies to know that there is a place of honor under this flag for them."

An Open Letter & Open Report / March Across Florida / Black History Month Part 10

On Monday February 29, 2016, I would post the St. Andrew's Cross over the overpass of Interstate 26/40 to commemorate the last day of Black History Month. I would hear the sound of the Rebel Yell being sung as a car passed by where I stood. Three young beautiful ladies would make a U-turn and park.

After hugging the paint off of me, they would tell me that they had been following my exploits since they were in middle school, and they were so honored and proud that they got the chance to finally meet me. And that everyone was talking about my visits to the local schools and the University of North Carolina.

The question would be asked of me, had I gone to Christ School this year? My reply was that my mom use to say that there comes a time when you don't have anything good to say about someone or something; it is better not to say anything at all. This was one of those times.

They would ask if I was ever going to go another March with my Flag? I told them that there was a plan in motion that I would began a March across the Great State of Florida on Friday morning, October 14, 2016.

Why Florida and not Virginia, another would ask?  Or Louisiana,would come another reply. I told them that I had become so moved about the desecrationof the memory of two great men of Florida, ( General Edmund Kirby Smith, and Dr. Alexander Darnes) that typify the kind of injustice now being played out once again against the South as those who hate her and seek occupation with Southern social and cultural genocide paramount for their comfort.

They would each give me a twenty dollar bill, and ask that I use it anyway I liked. I was so moved by the gesture. It would be a fitting end to Black History Month as I watched the two young Black ladies and their White girlfriend as they both called her girlfriend.wave and drive away. It was a great day in Dixie, and once again I would return the Rebel Yell!

Thanks to the Gainesville Volunteers Sons of Confederate Veterans Camp 373, and the many Camps and individual members of the Mississippi Division, Louisiana , Tennessee, South Carolina, Texas, North Carolina,Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Kentucky Sons of Confederate Veterans as well as the many members of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and the Order of the Confederate Rose for their support in helping me in bringing a true Black History Month forward for all those loyal Black folks who earned a place of honor and dignity in support of their homeland; the Southland of America.

Your brother,
