Politically Correct History: Making Slavery the Cause of the Un-Civil War-Part 1 of 2

Politically Correct History: Making Slavery the Cause of the Un-Civil War-Part 1 of 2
 
What was the cause of the so-called American “Civil War”? Post war Union propaganda generally served up a self-justifying misrepresentation of the war as a morality play in which a noble Union Army marched forth to battle for the glorious purpose of emancipating downtrodden slaves from evil Southerners. This explanation has been continued in an even more strident and self-righteous form in modern political correctness. This is usually supplemented with assertions that the South also had to be conquered (and hundreds of thousands of people killed) to “save” the Union. 

These often repeated assertions attempt to claim the moral high ground for Northern aggression and to discredit the South’s resistance to that aggression as “morally wrong,” as one incredibly arrogant editorial in a nominally Southern newspaper put it. This is insulting to those Southerners who have not surrendered mind and soul to the truth suppressing tyranny of modern reconstruction. It should also be disconcerting to anyone who values truth and eschews politically motivated distortion.

VETS LOOSE 4 – 1 in BATTLE OF GAINESVILLE

HK Edgerton visiting Memorial on his 2016 Southern Cross Revival March
Ignoring the voice of the voters, the Alachua Co. Commission caved to the cultural Marxists including “Anti-fa”, “Black Lives Matter” and “white-guilters” and in a new entrant, the “Uhuru” movement, feigned “Southerners” in a sad display of ignorance and hate last night by voting 4-1 to purge the War Memorial from County property.
“Turn this thing into rubble”, “it’s a symbol of white supremacy” and “more Southern blood should have been shed” were some of the rants offered by the ‘take it downers’ who offered ‘Peace”, “inclusiveness” and “unity” as justification in supporting Commissioner Byerly’s motion to box up the War Memorial and get rid of it as “surplus property”.  “It’s already been a hundred years…his time is up” said one individual, who demanded that the War memorial be moved in 60 days.  “The protesters didn’t sound ‘inclusive’ to me – they sound exclusive” said Save Southern Heritage – FL spokesman David McCallister.
The ‘take it downers’ were primarily young white UF students wearing black – many who were interviewed earlier and attesting to being anarchists that opposed any jurisdictional authority or rule of law.
The irony was not lost on Melanie Barr, who spoke on behalf of a black resident, Lizzie Jenkins, whose family survived the Rosewood massacre.  “She opposes moving the Memorial” said Barr.  Ms. Barr also wondered “if black residents of Alachua County are so upset, why aren’t they at the meeting calling for its removal”.

"I want to make one thing clear. This war against our constitution is not being fought way off in Madagascar or in Mandalay. It is being fought here—in our schools, our colleges, our churches, our women’s clubs. It is being fought with our money, channeled through the State Department. It is being fought twenty-four hours a day—while we remain asleep. How many of you Senators know what the UN is doing to change the teaching of the children in your own home town? The UN is at work there, every day and night, changing the teachers, changing the teaching materials, changing the very words and tones—changing all the essential ideas which we imagine our schools are teaching to our young folks. 

How in the name of Heaven are we to sit here, approve these programs, appropriate our own people’s money—for such outrageous “orientation” of our own children, and of the men and women who teach our children, in this Nation’s schools?"

With Confederate flags gone, Civil War museum will close

Via Billy


A Henry County commissioner requested a few months ago that a local Civil War museum remove its Confederate flags.

But without that symbol, the Nash Farm Battlefield and Museum announced that it can’t conduct its mission properly and will close June 1.

In a Facebook post, the museum’s directors cited the request by District 2 Commissioner Dee Clemmons that all Confederate flags be removed from the museum, in addition to the gift shop, “in an effort not to offend anyone.”

“To exclude any Confederate flag would mean the historical value has been taken from our exhibits, and a fair interpretation could not be presented to each guest,” the post read. “Confederate flags were on this hallowed ground, as were the Union flags. To remove either of them would be a dishonor.”

Arizona Governor Signs Bill Nullifying Capital Gains Taxes On Legal Tender Of Gold And Silver: Legalizing The United States Constitution

Legalizing The United States Constitution in Arizona.


On Monday, Gov. Doug Ducey signed a bill into law that eliminates states capital gains taxes on gold and silver specie. The tax repeal will not only benefit Arizonans who invest in gold and silver, it will also facilitate their use as currency and undermine the Federal Reserve’s monopoly on money.

Rep. Mark Finchem (R-Tucson) sponsored HB2014. The legislation eliminates state capital gains taxes on income “derived from the exchange of one kind of legal tender for another kind of legal tender.” The bill defines legal tender as “a medium of exchange, including specie, that is authorized by the United States Constitution or Congress for the payment of debts, public charges, taxes and dues.” “Specie” means coins having precious metal content.

SHARYL ATTKISSON: Pressure from Sponsors to Drop News Stories Like Seth Rich Is “Dangerous New Development”


Spokesman in Seth Rich Case Brad Bauman Tied to Media Matters’ David Brock

Via Billy



The acting spokesperson for the family of the late DNC staffer and suspected WikiLeaks source Seth Rich is a man named Brad Bauman who happens to be directly connected to Media Matters founder and George Soros-backed propagandist David Brock.

 

This recent discovery comes at a time when the interest in the Seth Rich case has reached a peak. Just earlier today, “independent investigators discovered that Bauman runs a foundation in his name,” Disobedient Media reports.
It is called the Bauman Foundation and on the Board of Directors sits David Brock, a self-loving, narcissistic, ego-maniac who has made a career of attacking people on both sides of the aisles, but since 1997 has aligned himself with the Clintons, Soros, and the ravenous, illiberal left. He is the founder of Media Matters for America, Correct the Record, and Shareblue. Brock is known for his use of “censorship” and “online harassment”

Wasserman Schultz Threatens Police Chief With ‘Consequences’ For Gathering Evidence Against Pakistani IT Staffers

Via Billy


Former Chairman of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police with ‘consequences’ for holding equipment that she says belongs to her in order to build a criminal case against a Pakistani IT staffer suspected of massive cybersecurity breaches, The Daily Caller reports.
TGP previously reported on the Pakistani brothers currently under investigation. From February of this year:
Three brothers who managed office IT for government officials were relieved of their duties last week on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.
Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives Thursday.
They accessed computers unauthorized. They were getting foreign information. The three brothers were making $161,000, $165,000, and $160,000.
One of the brothers has a criminal background.
TGP also reported earlier this week that Congressional aides fear politicians are being blackmailed by the Pakistani IT suspects in security breach.

Byron York: On collusion, John Brennan's incomplete story

Image result for On collusion, John Brennan's incomplete story

Former CIA Director John Brennan's appearance before the House Intelligence Committee on Tuesday rekindled the hopes of Democrats and others searching for proof that Donald Trump or his associates colluded with Russia to interfere with the 2016 election. But Brennan gave the committee old information — he frankly admitted it was old — that did not take into account what has been learned in recent months from other sources.

In short, this is what Brennan said: In the summer of 2016, I saw contacts between Russians and people in the Trump circle. I worried that the Russians were trying to use the Trump people for their own purposes. I gave the information to the FBI. But I have no idea what the FBI did with the information.

Brennan publicly provided the rationale for beginning the FBI counter-intelligence investigation that former FBI Director James Comey has said began in July 2016.

Send the Paris climate deal to die in the Senate

President Trump will attend the G7 Summit in Italy on Friday. This meeting of foreign leaders reportedly will pressure Trump to reverse his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement, as Trump repeatedly promised American voters he would do, recently comparing it to the Iran deal.

For Trump, staying in the Paris Climate Agreement presents two big problems. First, this would break a promise to millions of voters who want Trump to stop former President Barack Obama's march toward energy poverty and a weaker economy.

Second, it would concede to a global pressure campaign to make U.S. energy policies increasingly unaccountable to Americans and beholden to the demands of foreign bureaucrats. Staying in the Paris agreement is also irreconcilable with Trump's energy agenda, which includes rolling back the Environmental Protection Agency's harmful Clean Power Plan.

It has been revealed by Kim Dotcom that Seth Rich was the actor behind the DNC leaks, that after he was murdered the D.C. police never requested surveillance footage or bothered fully investigating the case, that top aids and Hillary  Clinton fear a full investigation into Rich’s murder, and that former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile attempted to stop the private investigator handling the murder. Seth Rich’s family has demanded that the police release details, that they are refusing to comply with.

Now, we have a full-scale media cover-up in the works complete with progressive propaganda outlets like George Soros’ funded Media Matters attempting to target the advertisers of any media figure that dares to look into Rich’s murder.

Mexico: $2/hr Wages: Upcoming Commerce Department Hearings To Give New Impetus To Battle To Fix Trade

Via Frank


The Trump Administration’s views on some issues (think health care) has evolved over recent months. But on foreign trade, the Administration has consistently stuck to Donald Trump’s pre-election view that past trade deals have been a lousy deal for the U.S. worker and they need to be fixed. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross has been tough and outspoken on the need to fix the trade deficit, singling out Mexico, China, and others as nations where our trade relations can and must be improved.

Last week, the Senate approved the appointment of Bob Lighthizer as US Trade Representative, completing the triumvirate (White House advisor Peter Navarro is the third figure) that will lead the Administration’s trade policies. And later this week, Department of Commerce public hearings on “significant trade deficits” look set to shine a bright light on the causes and consequences of America’s huge and persistent trade deficits.

Non-veteran North Carolina Senator Burr v Lt. General Flynn

Via Billy

http://cashmccall.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/rino-traitor.jpg 

The Senate Intelligence Committee slapped Michael Flynn two new subpoenas to turn over documents about his contacts with Russian officials on Tuesday, Politico reported. The Congressional move surfaced just one day after the former national security adviser invoked the Fifth Amendment to circumvent a pervious subpoena.

This time, the Committee directed the subpoenas at his businesses, believing he can't plead the Fifth.

“While we disagree with Gen. Flynn’s lawyer’s interpretation of taking the Fifth, it is even more clear that a business does not have a right to take the Fifth if it’s a corporation,” said top committee Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia.

Prior to his brief stint as Trump's national security adviser, Flynn ran a consulting firm called the Flynn Intel Group. 
Committee Chairman Richard Burr, R-North Carolina, remained adamant about obtaining information from Flynn.

“If in fact there’s not a response, we’ll seek additional counsel advice on how to proceed forward,” Burr said at a joint press briefing with Warner. “At the end of that option is a contempt charge, and I’ve said that everything is on the table.”

Anti-Confederacy or Anti-Western

A statue of Robert E. Lee is the last of four statues commemorating the Confederacy that leftist activists in New Orleans succeeded in bringing down this past weekend.

All Confederate symbols are monuments to “white supremacy,” the left assures us.  This is the justification for the campaign to erase them from public view. 

Pro-Confederate Southerners, however, have always maintained that they have never been interested in memorializing “supremacy” of any kind.  Rather, their symbols are expressions of a rich and storied cultural history.  Statues such as those of Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee that were just razed in the Big Easy are monuments to patriots and heroes who were willing to forego all in order to conserve that culture for future generations.

“Heritage, not Hate,” is how the pro-Confederate South has been putting it for decades now.
And while the account standardly offered by heritage-affirming Southerners is true as far as it goes, the reality is that it does not go nearly far enough.  

The truth is that the attack on Southern cultural symbols is an attack on American symbols. 

Let’s be clear: Though the movement to eradicate all open, public commemorations of Southerners who fought for the Confederacy is anti-Confederacy, it is not, ultimately, an anti-Confederate movement.  And though it most certainly is anti-Southern, it is not, ultimately, anti-Southern.

Former FBI Head and Comey’s predecessor at the FBI, Robert Mueller, is now the appointed Russia Investigation Special Council.  The question arises why Comey would want to speak with Mueller before Congress?

Comey is now famous for having investigated and refused to press charges against Bill and Hillary Clinton at least four different times in his career in Washington, DC while his family appears to have benefitted nicely.  Meuller is now famous for having delivered highly enriched uranium to Russia during his career as Head of the FBI and also is known for caving to the demands of Muslim groups during this same time span.

Now we are supposed to expect that these two fair minded individuals are going to meet within the next week before Comey speaks to Congress and this is all ok? Do you think that Comey will have the conversation recorded or will it be like the discussion Comey had with Hillary Clinton last year in regards to her criminal acts while as Secretary of State and not record the discussion?

Donna Brazile warned off private eye on Seth Rich murder

Former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile

Former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile is the high-ranking DNC representative who allegedly called police and the family of murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich and demanded to know why a private investigator was “snooping” into Rich’s death, the private eye revealed to WND Monday.

“The high-ranking DNC official that called the police after I inquired about Rich’s case was Donna Brazile,” veteran homicide detective Rod Wheeler told WND. “Why shouldn’t I reveal who it was?”

Brazile, who was also a CNN contributor and a Hillary for America donor at the time, was caught providing Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton with questions that would later be asked of Clinton at a televised CNN town hall. In an interview with Fox News before the election, Brazile denied leaking the questions to Clinton. But in a March 17, 2017, column for Time magazine, she finally admitted doing so, saying it was a “mistake I will forever regret.”

Kevin Brady touts border tax: ‘True competition for the first time’

Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Kevin Brady and other House Republicans are counting on revenue generated by the border adjustment tax to help fund a massive reduction in income tax rates. (Associated Press)

House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady mounted a renewed defense Tuesday for including a border adjustment tax in the Republicans’ proposed tax overhaul, but he is facing increasing defections from members of his party who say the tax is complicated and will end up socking consumers.

Seeking to inject new life into the proposal, Mr. Brady acknowledged “fair concerns” about it and said there is merit to the idea of phasing in the tax to give the economy time to adjust.

“I’m confident that we can bring forward the designs [and] the transition — very deliberate, very generous, including incorporating some of those issues in a way that we not just address it in the short term,” Mr. Brady, Texas Republican, said at an event hosted by the Peter G. Peterson Foundation.

A 20 percent border tax has become a centerpiece of the House Republicans’ tax overhaul, with Speaker Paul D. Ryan and other leaders saying it will level the playing field with other countries that impose similar taxes and protect American manufacturers.

Davis-Oliver Act Sets Out to Enforce U.S. Immigration Laws

Immigration impacts virtually every challenge and threat America and Americans confront each day.
Failures of the immigration system have cost thousands of Americans and others present in the United States their lives.

The 9/11 Commission, to which I provided testimony, identified those failure of the interior enforcement program, as being at heart of the ability of terrorists, and not only the 19 hijackers who carried out the terror attacks of 9/11 but other terrorists, as well, to enter the United States and embed themselves as they went about their deadly preparations.

Members of pernicious transnational gangs from around the world, and not just Latin America, have easily entered the United States and set up shop in towns and cities across the United States peddling narcotics and perpetrating violent crimes.

Failures of the immigration system have not only surpassed the wages of American and lawful immigrants but have also cost millions of American workers their very jobs.

The history of human evolution has been rewritten after scientists discovered that Europe was the birthplace of mankind, not Africa.

Currently, most experts believe that our human lineage split from apes around seven million years ago in central Africa, where hominids remained for the next five million years before venturing further afield.

But two fossils of an ape-like creature which had human-like teeth have been found in Bulgaria and Greece, dating to 7.2 million years ago.

Mark Steyn On the Unmentionable Real Issues and Steve Sailer’s “World’s Most Important Graph”


 

Several people sent me Mark Steyn’ s YouTube video—he has a video channel he calls SteynPosts—from last Wednesday.
 
It’s a 23-minute clip, right there on YouTube, and well worth your attention.

Mark takes recently-elected French president Emmanuel Macron and his new political party as the starting point for his commentary. He refers to Macron as “this cipher, this globalist pretty boy.” He translates the name of Macron’s party, En Marche!, as “Forward!” Mark called this “a vacuous slogan.”

This recent Presidential election in France was, said Mark, a consequential election; but the guy who won, “won by pretending it was an election about nothing.”

To support his case, and to set the hearts a-fluttering over here on the Dissident Right, Mark then pulled out Steve Sailer’s graph, the graph I was talking about two weeks ago, what Steve calls “the world’s most important graph.” This is the graph Steve made from the U.N.’s 2012 population projections, showing the population of Europe flatlining at around half a billion through the rest of this century while the population of Africa rockets up to over four billion:
