Confederate Soldiers Were Not Traitors


The following is a letter-to-the-editor of the Charleston, SC Post and Courier September 15, 2018 defending the crew of the CSS Hunley. It applies to all Confederates soldiers.

Dear Editor of The Post and Courier,

A letter writer on September 12, 2018 is adamant that the proposed museum for the Confederate submarine H. L. Hunley should not be incorporated into Patriot’s Point because Patriot’s Point honors the U.S. Navy and those “who defended the U.S. and its Constitution” whereas the CSS Hunley crew were traitors.

He is correct that the Hunley’s sinking of the USS Housatonic to become the first submarine in history to sink an enemy ship in combat was an historic event, but he errs grievously when he says the Hunley should also be remembered “for their pardons for treason.” That is fake history.

Former top FBI lawyer James Baker gave "explosive" closed-door testimony on Wednesday detailing for congressional investigators how the Russia probe was handled in an "abnormal fashion" reflecting "political bias," according to two Republican lawmakers present for the deposition. 

"Some of the things that were shared were explosive in nature," Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told Fox News. "This witness confirmed that things were done in an abnormal fashion. That's extremely troubling."

Senate Republicans filed cloture on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination on Wednesday, paving the way for a weekend showdown over the Supreme Court.

The move by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) will allow the chamber to vote on ending debate on Kavanaugh’s nomination Friday under the chamber’s rules.

If Kavanaugh overcomes the procedural hurdle, the Senate could then take a final vote on his nomination as early as Saturday.

McConnell pledged earlier Wednesday that the chamber would vote on Kavanaugh this week, despite what he argued were attempts by Democrats to delay or stall the nomination.

Hai Ba Trung (2 sisters Trung)


When tyrants take your husband away and execute him for protesting high taxes, you tend to take stuff like that personally. That’s how Trung Trac took it when the Chinese killed her husband almost two millennia ago.

What’s a widow to do upon the murder of her significant other? Well, if you’re going by the Trung Trac playbook, you team up with your younger sister and go on a three-year rampage of revenge and revolution.

A Tuesday Tennessee gubernatorial debate in Memphis between Republican candidates Bill Lee and Democrat Karl Dean revealed, perhaps not unexpectedly, Lee is a conservative and Dean is a left-winger.

That was most evident in how both men answered panelists’ questions during the televised event.
This after various mainstream media outlets last week tried to portray Dean as a political moderate.

GOP senator: Kavanaugh protestors are 'paid activists' & Trump: Voters Are ‘REALLY ANGRY’ over Democrats Mistreating Kavanaugh

GOP senator: Kavanaugh protestors are 'paid activists'

Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) on Wednesday described those protesting Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court as "paid activists".

Appearing on Laura Ingraham's syndicated radio show, Perdue said that Republicans should not be swayed by protestors and should "grow up and start playing defense."

“These are not genuine people who are concerned about Dr. Ford or anything else, these are paid activists,” he said. 

"This is a George Soros conspiracy, and it’s time we wake up, expose them, stand up and fight for our country, because that’s what’s at stake here,” Perdue added, referring to the billionaire activist who has donated to liberal social causes.

The previous article, with material taken from the book Confederate Courier about the trial of John Surratt Jr. almost reads like a playbook for much of what goes on in Washington in 2018. It’s truly amazing how little some things change. Or maybe you could say the more they change the more they stay the same.

The trial of John Surratt Jr. was never only about Surratt. He was the vehicle used by the Deep State of his day i.e. Edwin Stanton and the Radical Republicans, the Yankee Marxists.

On page 138 was noted a letter that said, in part, “Mr. Matchett then requested me to mention to Surratt there was a means by which he could save his neck, have the shackles struck from his arms, and have his mother’s name rescued from odium if he would give the name of someone high in position who might have prompted the assassination as he and his party were no doubt tools in the hands of more important personages and that he need not look to Andrew Johnson for pardon as he dare not do it.

Former Dem Candidate Claims Relationship with Julie Swetnick: ‘I Do Not Believe Her Allegations’

 (INSETS: Dennis Ketterer and Julie Swetnick) LOS ANGELES, CA - SEPTEMBER 24: Michael Avenatti, attorney for Stephanie Clifford, also known as adult film actress Stormy Daniels, walks as he leaves the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on September 24, 2018 in Los Angeles, California. Avenatti claims …

 Ketterer then claims in his letter that Julie Swetnick’s own father told him years later that she “had psychological and other problems.”

Senate Republicans released an explosive letter about Julie Swetnick from a man named Dennis Ketterer Tuesday, who claimed that he had a brief relationship with Swetnick and that he does not believe her allegations about Brett Kavanaugh.

Ketterer’s letter claims he met Julie Swetnick in 1993 during a difficult period in his marriage.

Swetnick, who is represented by Resistance TV lawyer Michael Avenatti, recently made headlines after accusing Brett Kavanaugh of being present at high school parties where there were gang rapes. Kavanaugh has denied the allegations, saying, “I don’t know who this is and this never happened.”

Dennis Ketterer claims that during his relationship with Swetnick, he had a conversation with her about how she liked group sex.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) put Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in his place Wednesday.


Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer is doing everything he can to delay the Kavanaugh confirmation vote.

On Tuesday, Chuck Schumer told Mitch McConnell he wanted an FBI briefing on Brett Kavanaugh’s report 24 hrs before the Senate votes on cloture to end debate on the nomination.

“It is essential that Senators not only have access to the completed background investigation file, but that FBI officials be made available 24 hours before the Senate votes on cloture in order to answer Senators’ questions about what specific investigative steps were taken, what evidence was collected, and which witnesses were interviewed,” Schumer said in a letter to McConnell.

McConnell shot down Schumer’s request Wednesday in a letter.

President Barack Obama’s first education secretary, Arne Duncan, gave a speech on the 45th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday” at the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, where, in 1965, state troopers beat and tear-gassed hundreds of peaceful civil rights marchers who were demanding voting rights. 

Later that year, as a result of widespread support across the nation, Congress passed the Voting Rights Act. Duncan titled his speech “Crossing the Next Bridge.” Duncan told the crowd that black students “are more than three times as likely to be expelled as their white peers,” adding that Martin Luther King would be “dismayed.”.

Grassley sounds alarm:Christine Blasey Ford ex-boyfriend says she helped friend prep for potential polygraph.

In a written declaration released Tuesday and obtained by Fox News, an ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford, the California professor accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, directly contradicts her testimony under oath last week that she had never helped anyone prepare for a polygraph examination.

The former boyfriend, whose name was redacted in the declaration, also said Ford neither mentioned Kavanaugh nor mentioned she was a victim of sexual misconduct during the time they were dating from about 1992 to 1998. He said he saw Ford going to great lengths to help a woman he believed was her "life-long best friend" prepare for a potential polygraph test. He added that the woman, Monica McLean, had been interviewing for jobs with the FBI and U.S. Attorney's office.

Christine Blasey Ford's changing Kavanaugh assault story leaves her short on credibility

Via David

Open-minded Americans of all stripes should see that — emotions aside — Ford’s testimony is completely devoid of credibility: so much so, that Mitchell told the Senate this week that Ford’s allegations do not even meet the preponderance of evidence standard. That standard, which governs in civil litigation, asks whether it is more likely than not that an event occurred. 

Put aside Christine Blasey Ford's emotional performance. Her testimony revealed her as a witness whose memories change at her convenience.

When Christine Blasey Ford testified last week before the Judiciary Committee, America witnessed a haunted woman recounting a devastating trauma. But putting aside Ford’s emotional performance and focusing instead on the professor’s testimony reveals numerous inconsistencies in her narrative that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.

As a sex-crimes prosecutor, Republican questioner Rachel Mitchell is well-positioned to “know it when she sees it.” But rather than see Ford as a victim of sexual abuse by Kavanaugh, Mitchell saw her as a witness lacking in credibility. And this conclusion comes from an expert who knows that there are many reasons victims delay reporting sexual abuse. Mitchell also recognized that victims may legitimately not remember certain details related to an attack.

This is one story that Democrats won’t want to hear at a time when they’re pushing a”believe women” campaign that urges Americans to unquestioningly believe sexual assault accusations — and presume the guilt of the accused.

Charges were dropped on Monday against four men who were accused of raping a woman in Las Vegas over the summer, thanks to a cell phone video that showed the sex was consensual, according to KVVU, Fox 5.

RECAP: All 3 'Witnesses' Named By Ford And Questioned By FBI Deny Knowledge Of Party

 Christine Blasey Ford speaks before the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC.

According to a report from The Washington Post on Monday, at least four people have been questioned by the FBI thus far as part of a probe into sexual misconduct accusations made by California professor Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
Three of those four individuals interviewed are the "witnesses" Dr. Ford herself has named as being present at the "gathering" wherein the assault in question supposedly happened: Patrick J. Smyth (AKA P.J.), Leland Keyser, and Mark Judge. Every one of them, however, has denied being at this supposed "gathering" Ford has described.
