"Let it not be said of us that we allowed the South we love to perish."

This article was originally published in Southern Partisan Magazine in 1997.

“Being a Southerner is a spiritual condition, like being a Catholic or Jew.” So wrote Richard Weaver in his essay “The South and the American Union” in The Lasting South (1957). The South’s experience during the war for its independence, he added, only confirmed this separateness of spirit and a need to be a separate nation.

The South might be viewed as an American Ireland, Poland or Armenia, not indeed unified by a different religious allegiance from its invader, but different in its way of life, different in the values it ascribed to things by reason of its world outlook, and made more different after the war by its necessary confrontation of the tragic view . . . .”

With the United States seeking independence for countries around the world, Weaver wrote, “it has certainly been handsome of the South not to raise the question of its own independence again.”

Cancer breakthrough: Scientists develop 'smoke detector' test that can spot disease before symptoms are noticeable

'This could have huge potential, as early diagnosis is a key factor in survival rates'

A simple blood test that can detect cancer before any symptoms are noticeable has been developed by researchers in a breakthrough that could save thousands of lives.

The scientists, who unveiled the test at the British Science Festival in Swansea, compared the new test to a smoke detector, because it does not actually find cancer but changes to red blood cells that occur when cancer is present.

Discovering cancer early is a key factor in successful treatment.

If a tumour is caught in a single part of the body, there is a much better chance that it can be removed surgically.

Welfare in Perspective

Via Billy


Americans, it is said, are the most generous people in the world. We give to our friends and neighbors and fellow countrymen when they need help, of course, but we also help those who live thousands of miles away in other countries.

We’re quick to provide a “hand up” to Americans in need, to help them over rough spots and get them back on their feet so that they can then care for themselves. There are those who, for various reasons, are unable to help themselves, and we don’t mind continuing to provide assistance for them.

The hand up is sometimes called a “safety net,” a device to save those truly in need from falling into permanent despair. But for many the safety net has turned into a hammock, no longer a device to help out in an emergency or time of trouble, but an easy way of life for those who would rather let others provide for them than provide for themselves.

Were those documents…destroyed once there was a preservation order and a subpoena in place? It looks like the answer is yes,” Chaffetz told Hewitt.

FBI Director James Comey, top State Department officials and — perhaps — Hillary Clinton adviser Sidney Blumenthal will soon testify on Capitol Hill about the former secretary of state’s email scandal.

“We will be holding hearings,” Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday.

Chaffetz said that Comey is slated to appear in front of the House Judiciary Committee next week.

And Patrick Kennedy, the State Department career official who oversees day-to-day operations at the agency, will testify in front of the Oversight Committee this week.

More Deja Vu, circa the George W. Bush Years


Twenty-three Republican Senators joined a large majority of Democrats to vote for the Bush bill to amnesty millions of present and future illegal aliens. The bill passed the Senate 62–36.

‘Obstruction Of Justice’: Chaffetz Requests Independent Review Of Clinton Evidence

Via Billy

House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz asked the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia (USADC) Tuesday to review evidence from the FBI’s recent interviews to decide whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or her confidantes broke the law.

The Utah Republican wrote to U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips saying his committee discovered a “sequence of events that may amount to obstruction of justice and destruction of evidence and destruction of evidence by Secretary Clinton and her employees and contractors, including her attorneys, employees of Platte River Networks, and employees of Clinton Executive Services Corporation.”

 ANITA BRYANT WAS ONE RIGHTEOUS BABE.  There I said it, and she wasn't a spring chicken in that picture but she was still smoking hot.   She was 21 when I was born, and yes I had a little school boy crush on her.  Trying to live the Christian life is, was, and will be major hard struggle.  Especially in junior high school (called middle school now).  I feared for my soul back then, because looking at her caused some stirrings whenever I saw her picture.  Longing after women especially Christian was a thou-shalt-not as far as I understood it back then in my awkward age.  Like I said the Christian life is hard.

Donald Trump Releases Statement on Passing of His Friend and Supporter Phyllis Schlafly

Via Billy


Phyllis Schlafly is a conservative icon who led millions to action, reshaped the conservative movement, and fearlessly battled globalism and the 'kingmakers' on behalf of America's workers and families. I was honored to spend time with her during this campaign as she waged one more great battle for national sovereignty.

I was able to speak with her by phone only a few weeks ago, and she sounded as resilient as ever. Our deepest prayers go out to her family and all her loved ones. She was a patriot, a champion for women, and a symbol of strength. She fought every day right to the end for America First.

Her legacy will live on in the movement she led and the millions she inspired.

-Donald J. Trump

Trump & the Hillarycons

 Donald Trump Channels Pat Buchanan

In 1964, Phyllis Schlafly of Alton, Illinois, mother of six, wrote and published a slim volume entitled “A Choice Not an Echo.”

Backing the candidacy of Sen. Barry Goldwater, the book was a polemic against the stranglehold the eastern liberal establishment had held on the Republican nomination for decades.

Schlafly went on to lead the campaign to derail the Equal Rights Amendment, which, with 35 states having ratified, was just three states short of being added to our Constitution.

Pro-ERA forces never added another state. Phyllis, who, at 20 was testing weapons at a munitions plant in World War II, shot it dead.

10 prominent doctors question Hillary's health & Voters Have Right to Question Hillary’s health

When questions were raised about Barack Obama’s birth, and whether he was actually eligible to be president of the United States, he brushed the questions aside as if answering them was beneath the dignity of a prince of the crown. He let the questions fester for years before putting them to rest.

It’s still not clear why he did that. He preferred to accuse inquiring minds that wanted to know of racism and bigotry, as if the peasants had no right to ask questions about the crown prince. The presidency is the most precious honor Americans can bestow on one of their own, but Mr. Obama treated the gift as nothing more than a trinket he was entitled to, and who were these uppity people to question him?

Only racists, bigots, mean-spirited zealots, right-wing fanatics and white Christians who couldn’t appreciate the heavenly music of the call to evening prayer at the mosque would do that. Even the mildest criticism, of the sort that every president before him had to endure, was dismissed as disrespect, even racism.


Obama Kept His Promise, 83,000 Coal Jobs Lost And 400 Mines Shuttered

Via Billy


This Labor Day, America has 83,000 fewer coal jobs and 400 coal mines than it did when Barack Obama was elected in 2008, showing that the president has followed through on his pledge to “bankrupt” the coal industry.

A 2015 study found the coal industry lost 50,000 jobs from 2008 to 2012 during Obama’s first term.

During Obama’s second term, the industry employment in coal mining has fallen by another 33,300 jobs, 10,900 of which occurred in the last year alone, according to federal data. Currently, coal mining employs 69,460 Americans, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Much of the blame for the job losses is targeted at federal regulations aimed at preventing global warming, which caused coal  power plants to go bankrupt, resulting in a sharp decline in the price of coal.

Who Won the Webster-Hayne Debate of 1830?


The dominant historical opinion of the famous debate between Daniel Webster of Massachusetts and Robert Young Hayne of South Carolina which took place in the United States Senate in 1830 has long been that Webster defeated Hayne both as an orator and a statesman. According to the legend, Webster managed in the course of the debate to isolate the South, especially South Carolina, by discrediting her political principles of states’ rights, strict construction, and nullification, and exposing them as dangerous to the permanency of the Union. In addition, it is said that he imparted prestige and authority to the National Republican principles of implied powers, federal supremacy, and perpetual Union. From that moment onward, according to the legend, Americans increasingly saw the Constitution not as a compact among independent states but as a product of the people of the nation.

Americans contemplated a national government not strictly limited by the Constitution but one empowered by it to promote national development and the public good. It is further claimed that Webster’s peroration with its paean to “Union and Liberty, now and forever, one and inseparable” captured the imagination of the people and engendered a new spirit of nationalism. This legend with its origins in the nineteenth century has remained unchallenged to this day and continues to be taken for granted by historians working in the antebellum period.[1]
