A Most Vicious And Desperate Backlash

In the aftermath of the rise of the middle class, finally reacting to being crapped upon by the politicians of both parties and the establishment media, the reaction of the global elite has been to, as per their usual tactic, turn logic and common sense on its head.

The last thing these paid hacks and their Fabian socialist directors wanted was for their viewing public (what little that is left) to consider that poll after poll was showing that the public not only openly mistrusts the news media but holds them in utter contempt as well. So we are now going to get the true fascist backlash of the besieged power elite. The claims that any information outlet that is not in conformance with the establishment line is now to be labeled as "fake news".

This despicable and desperate reaction was first telegraphed by the leftist mouth piece Bill Maher shortly before election day. Apparently reading the writing on the wall, he came out to do his best "the boy who cried wolf" impression stating that maybe the left had overplayed the Republicans are fascists card with its open equation of Bush 43 and Mitt Romney as all but the reincarnation of Hitler himself.

As part of the Flags Across the Carolinas Division project, another flag has been raised! This time the flag is located outside of Roxboro, NC on highway 158 east. It is a 5' X 8' Army of Tennessee Battle Flag atop at 40' pole. It was raised this past Saturday by the Roxboro Grays Camp. Special thanks to Charlie Palmer, Russell Pratt, Duane Butner, David Robinette, Jerry Davis, Rufus Slaughter, Richard Whitfield, Charlie Lunsford, Bob Hill, Reuben Moore, and Bobby Lawson for all of their hard work in making this project possible. 

On December 10, 2016, the flag will be officially dedicated. The ceremony will take place at 10:30 am at 2112 Hwy 158 East (Oxford Road). More details will follow via an email announcement.

This flag will be dedicated to North Carolina's General Matt Ransom. Here is his biography taken from an article on our website written by Craig Pippen:

"Matt Whitaker Ransom was born in Warren County, NC to parents Robert and Priscilla Whitaker Ransom. He attended the University of North Carolina and graduated in 1847. After graduation from UNC, he returned to Warrenton and practiced law.  In 1853, he met Martha Exum of Northampton County. They married and moved to her plantation, Verona, on the Roanoke River.

Matt Ransom served in the North Carolina General Assembly and in the capacity of Attorney General for the State of North Carolina. In 1861, he was one of three commissioners chosen to the Confederate States Government in Mobile, AL.

With the secession of North Carolina, Ransom offered his services to the Confederate Army. He was given a commission as Lieutenant Colonel of the 1st NC Infantry. He was then promoted to Colonel and transferred to lead the 35th NC Regiment. This regiment was in his brother’s (Gen. Robert Ransom) brigade which Matt later inherited upon his brother’s promotion.  Matt Ransom led the 35th NC until being promoted to Brigadier General and assuming command of his brother’s brigade. He fought in the Peninsula Campaign, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Plymouth, NC, and the Siege of Petersburg. He fought gallantly in all of his engagements, being wounded three times before finally surrendering with General Lee at Appomattox.

Upon his surrender, he returned to Verona in the area of Weldon, NC. There, he continued to farm and practice law. In 1872, he served in the US Senate in a spot won by Governor Zebulon B. Vance who was disqualified due to political issues. Matt Ransom served in the Senate until 1895 when he was appointed as the Ambassador to Mexico. He left this post in 1897, returning to Verona where he remained until his death in 1904. He is buried on the Verona plantation in the family cemetery."
I look forward to seeing many of you at the dedication and to raising many more flags across our State.

See you on the front lines...

The Electoral College: Why Do We Have It?

Via David

Prager University:  Do you understand what the Electoral College is? Or how it works? Or why America uses it to elect its presidents instead of just using a straight popular vote? Author, lawyer and Electoral College expert Tara Ross does, and she explains that to understand the Electoral College is to understand American democracy.


With voices on the left crying for abolishing the electoral college (although that would take an amendment to the Constitution--which perhaps Mr. Holder needs a refresher on too), it is important to refresh why we have an electoral college. The system is not broken, it is working just as the Founders intended.

What Most People Don’t Know About “Reconstruction.”

Via Billy's%20men.jpg

Valerie Protopapas

The following newspaper accounts are, obviously, only a minute sampling of what reportage occurred on murders and assaults not against “helpless freedmen” by evil white Southerners, but against Southerners, white and black, who refused to go along with the Radical Republican agenda. Notice that the newspaper involved was not from the South and neither was it reporting upon a story in a Southern paper:

Semi-Weekly Idaho World – May 13, 1868

The New York Herald remarks: Whenever any Radical firebrand, Loyal Leaguer or negro is killed or hurt in the South, the Radical press and orators of the North make a terrible noise about it. They ring the changes and howl day after day about rebel outrages, rebel hatred and rebel murders, but we never hear anything from them concerning the murdered Southern whites, and black outrages. The Radical papers are full of sensation accounts and denunciations of the murder of Ashburn, in Georgia, but they say nothing about the white one-armed ex-Confederate soldier who was shot dead on his horse recently near Selma, Alabama, or of the other four white men who have been murdered in the same vicinity since the war and no one arrested for these murders.

No, we hear nothing from these Radicals of the numerous other murders of the conquered Southern whites and outrages on them in other localities of the South, because there is every reason to believe this is the work of the black Loyal Leaguers. At a public procession and meeting of negroes at Macon, Georgia, on March 30th, the “loyal blacks” carried a banner on which the figure of a negro, cut in pasteboard, hung dangling from the gallows, and to which was attached, on a piece of white paper, the following inscription:

“Every man that don’t vote a Radical ticket this is the way we want to do him—hang him by the neck” These Radical Loyal League negroes boldly proclaimed, too, that the negro who failed to register would receive thirty-nine lashes; if he failed to vote at the election, two hundred lashes; if he voted the Democratic ticket he should be hanged. Need we be surprised, then, that white Southerners are murdered in every part of the South and that the murderers are not arrested?

In the same paper: RADICAL FRAUDS.—The most infamous frauds were perpetrated in many counties at the Arkansas election. At Clarksville, for instance, ninety-nine votes were returned against the Constitution—since then the affidavits of one hundred and eighty have been taken of those who voted against it. One of the registers is known to have voted twice, and was seen to tear up Conservative tickets from the military ballot box. Negroes were permitted to vote two or three times and even negro women, dressed in men’s clothes, appeared and deposited ballots.

Police Departments Say Pittsburg High Principal Participated in Anti-Trump Rally

On Wednesday night, Antioch Police Chief Allan Cantando addressed the Pittsburg Unified School District (PUSD) Board of Trustees highlighting how the District was downplaying what happened during an anti-Donald Trump protest.

He would now like the District to further investigate the incident and review their policies after Cantando provided additional information from both Antioch and Pittsburg Police.

Chief Cantando explained how both Antioch and Pittsburg police officers observed Principal Todd Whitmire participating and encouraging students during the rally–which last week PUSD Superintendent Janet Schulze and Principal Whitmire deny saying he was there for safety.

Schulze claims the rally was peaceful in nature which Cantando disputes.

Chief Cantando made the following statement at the board meeting:


As Stanley Kowalski says to Blanche Dubois, "We have had this date from the beginning," so does the union. Secession was inevitable and would have been exercised more often had the South won the Civil War. This nation is not conducive to a massive federal government, it never has been and never will be. It was not designed thus and cannot sustain itself as thus. That it has maintained this long as it has is a miracle. I think it would have come unwound during the Obama Administration had it not been evident that the media would have propagandized it as a "racist" movement. But, now the media has been exposed as FAKE news organizations and nothing other than propagandists, so that moniker of "racist" has no affect. It has turned the word into a pejorative and nothing less, with no clout, with no deterrence. One merely shrugs at the indictment, knowing it is nothing less than an epithet, akin to being called a Redneck. Who cares?

In Alabama, Jeff Sessions Desegregated Schools and Got the Death Penalty for KKK Head

Via Billy

Now that Jeff Sessions is Donald Trump's pick for attorney general, you're going to hear a lot of people dig up old accusations that Sessions is a racist. In fact, CNN did so last night. However, between the nature of the accusations and Sessions's actual record of desegregating schools and taking on the Klan in Alabama, it strains credulity to believe that he is a racist.

House GOP Warns Obama Bureaucrats: We Will Reverse ‘Midnight Rules’

The House of Representatives passed legislation, 240-to-179, allowing Congress to undo any last-minute rules and regulations put on the books in the waning days of President Barack Obama.

“This bipartisan bill is about reviving the separation of powers to ensure our laws are written by the representatives we actually vote for – not unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats who are on their way out the door,” said the bill’s sponsor Rep. Darrell Issa R-CA, a former chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the current chairman of the House’s Intellectual Property Subcommittee.

10 Hilarious Post-Election Musings

F*ck Bipartisanship

I keep hearing a bunch of trash about how Trump needs to reach across the aisle to placate the people he just monkey-stomped at the polls. Heresy! Every soldier learns early on that the best time to kick someone is when they are down. This is our chance to turn the country back into something our forefathers would recognize. Burn the regulations, shrink the government, and cut my taxes! Bomb ISIS back to the Stone Age. Or further into the Stone Age, whatever analogy works for you. And tell the Europeans to stick their well-laid socialism in their well-laid ass.

The people have spoken! I don’t know about anyone else in the GunsAmerica sphere of influence, but I for one am totally motivated about the kick-in-the-teeth the electorate just gave the ruling class!

I feel as though a great weight has been lifted, and our Republic will live to see another day thanks to the election of Donald J. Trump.

I have no qualms about saying in this very public forum, with my real name attached, that if Clinton had been elected president, there would have been an all-out civil war within six months time. No matter your politics, Clinton is a criminal. When the rule of law is gone, and citizens have no legitimate means to hold lawbreakers accountable, there is only one possible outcome: chaos.

No one wanted to see that less than our veterans, and I feel like I can speak for us as a collective on that. I like air conditioning and having my garbage picked up at the curb once a week. Those simple luxuries don’t exist in many parts of this world. We have seen firsthand how ugly humanity can get over the last 15 years across our various conflicts in the Middle East, and none of us wanted that here.

But another four years of unconstitutional executive orders and a corrupt Department of Justice wouldn’t have left us much choice. Like many of you, I was so relieved when I woke up Wednesday morning, I almost didn’t know what to do with myself. But as the week went on, I started musing about our post-election situation.  Below are some of my thoughts and observations:

Dollar Sees Record Winning Run Versus Euro on Trump Policy View

The dollar held a nine-day advance against the euro, its longest winning streak since the shared currency’s debut in 1999.

The U.S. currency touched its strongest level in almost a year, driven by expectations for U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s reflationary economic policies and a reinforced view that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in December. It has appreciated over the past two weeks as Treasury yields surged on speculation the new administration will boost spending.

Tom Hanks: “I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his reelection in four years.”

Via Billy


Tom Hanks was honored at the Museum of Modern Art gala with the Film Benefit. The audience was comprised of New York and Hollywood Liberals that were still stinging from the Election results.

The introduction by curator Rajendra Roy said that over the last 100 years during times of ‘turmoil or uncertainty’ Americans have looked to the cinema and its heroes for ‘comfort, inspiration and reassurance’ Roy continued saying that Hanks is the ‘…cinematic hero we need now’.

When Hanks made his address, he said some unexpected things.

He probably should have had a ‘trigger warning’.

Trump Taps Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo as CIA Director - one of the harshest critics of the Iran nuclear deal

Image result for Mike Pompeo army officer

President-elect Donald Trump has offered Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) the job of Central Intelligence Agency director, a move that would put a key member of the House Intelligence Committee at the helm of the spy agency.

Mr. Pompeo, a former Army officer and Harvard Law School graduate, was first elected to Congress in 2010 as part of the Tea Party movement.

He would likely bring a sharp change in tone to the CIA. Mr. Pompeo has been one of the harshest critics of the Iran nuclear deal that the U.S. and several western countries struck last year.

“I look forward to rolling back this disastrous deal with the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism,” he said on Twitter on Thursday, speaking of the Iran deal.

Mayor Elrod, City Manager Simon, City Council,

Please consider this a formal request for a change in our parade permit.  Our sole purpose in requesting a parade permit for Monday, January 16th was to expose the true intentions of the C.A.R.E. Rockbridge group. By refusing our offer to switch the dates and allow our parades to be held on the corresponding holidays, they have confirmed that their parade was never intended to honor Martin Luther King, but was instead a stunt designed solely to disrupt the peaceful memorial observances of Lee-Jackson Day that have taken place in Lexington for decades.

Unlike that organization, we have no desire or intent to disrupt the memorial and remembrance services by hosting a parade to honor anyone other than those for whom the day is set aside. A Saturday afternoon parade would allow us to honor Lee & Jackson on the day traditionally set aside for such remembrances, and prevent any disruptions on the MLK holiday on the following Monday.

With our mission accomplished and the C.A.R.E. group’s true purpose exposed to the public, we would like to request to reschedule our parade for Saturday, January 14th at 3:00 p.m. The route, and all other details will remain the same, although we expect the numbers participating to grow, based on the communications we have received.

This spiteful action by C.A.R.E. Rockbridge received national attention, and has elicited an immediate and overwhelming response from the heritage community. We have been contacted by numerous groups who are planning on traveling to Lexington for the weekend, many for the first time, and we expect attendance to surpass that of previous years. In addition, local citizens have contacted us to offer support and help with planning events, and we are thrilled to have received new offers of land in Lexington for additional roadside Memorial Battle Flags, all in direct response to C.A.R.E.'s antics.

We look forward to working with city officials to ensure the safety of the Lee-Jackson Day participants, considering the explosive atmosphere that has been created by C.A.R.E. Rockbridge’s deliberate attempts to disrupt our otherwise peaceful commemorations.

Lexington has not seen two finer men since Lee and Jackson. They deserve the respect of those given the privilege of caring for their remains. The immortal and honorable legacy of Lee & Jackson will remain long after those trying to destroy the history and heritage of Lexington leave this earth.

Trump offers Jeff Sessions attorney general job

Via Mike

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) has been offered the attorney general job by Donald Trump, according to a report.

CBS reports Trump made the offer to Sessions, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Sessions was an early endorser of Trump, and has become a close and trusted adviser.

In a statement released Thursday, the Trump transition team hinted at his appointment: “[T]he President-elect has been unbelievably impressed with Senator Sessions and his phenomenal record as Alabama’s Attorney General and U.S. Attorney. It is no wonder the people of Alabama re-elected him without opposition.”
