Welcome to Year Zero of the Cultural Revolution: The Seventeenth Amendment and the Siren Song of Democracy


A Review of The Road to Mass Democracy: Original Intent and the Seventeenth Amendment (Routledge, 2017) by C.H. Hoebeke

On April 8, 1913, the requisite three quarters of the State legislatures kneecapped themselves, surrendering to “the people” their authority to elect Senators of the United States. The ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment, which provided for the direct popular election of Senators, was officially declared on May 31, and with it one of the final ramparts of the original Constitution fell to the rising tide of egalitarian mass democracy. Though the Seventeenth Amendment is by no means the worst or the final depredation upon States’ Rights, it is indeed extremely significant, a great contribution to the revolutionization and overthrow of the America our forefathers bequeathed us; notwithstanding this significance, however, the Seventeenth Amendment remained largely unexamined until C.H. Hoebeke’s informative study, The Road to Mass Democracy.

Woodpile Reports: A Tribute to Remus

Via David

Ol Remus of the Woodpile Report is a legend. 

As of June 2020 our legend  Ol Remus has gone off air so to speak.

We do not know his identity in real life.    

These are the Vintage and recent Articles and Woodpile Reports from Ol'Remus.

I  started these legacy files in September 2018 but left off because I could not reliably bring across links. and because to a large extent vintage files were no longer available.

However, luckily Remus has such a reputation that many of his vintage reports are available still on other web sites.    I bring them across regularly, as I find them.   .                                                                             
If you knocked on a door somewhere in North Carolina Ol' Remus would have answered. .  He would look something like the man in the photo here. 

Unless you coaxed him, or as we say down here> twisted his arm <, you would leave not knowing you had met a legend.

I will refine this writing until that legend is read about by many people. His archetype is as a hero father figure to good men. That is some accomplishment. 

He is a father figure to grown men. Read Remus anywhere, you will not find embittered antagonism to the insane socialism and totalitarians of the left, but an acerbic wry commentary on the state of his country.

NC: Homeschool requests overload state government website

Via David

The N.C. Department of Administration website as it appeared Wednesday evening.

RALEIGH – Wednesday evening, the website for the N.C Department of Administration’s Notice of Intent to Establish a Home School was not available due to volume.

The website around 9:20 p.m. read, “The system is not currently available due to an overwhelming submission of Notices of Intent (NOI). It will be back online as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience as we work to process NOIs as quickly as possible.”

Classical Conversations Inc. CEO Robert Bortins, responding to the site being down, told NSJ, “Families are uncertain if the public schools will be able to serve their families needs for school this fall. The pandemic schooling at home gave them the opportunity to see that they could homeschool, and now they are choosing to do it intentionally.

Earlier today, Gov. Roy Cooper delayed his expected announcement on the plan to reopen schools for the 2020-21 school year, saying his administration needed more time to study the data, trends, and achieve buy in from parents and teachers.

The website message archived and can be viewed here.

The homeschool movement has grown exponentially in the past two decades in North Carolina, now with more homeschool students than private school students.

Southern Rock for the Apocalypse, Charlie Daniels Edition

Charlie Daniels is dead. Just a shade over three years ago, I wrote this piece in honor of his birthday.

The South has lost one of its greatest bards, and Dixie is worse for it.

Daniels recorded arguably his best album, Fire on the Mountain, at Capricorn studios, the Peach State’s famous recording studio in Macon. Unlike FAME or Muscle Shoals in Alabama, Capricorn focused mostly on Southern rock. Daniels understood what was at stake, even in 1974. He was once interviewed about Capricorn and its mission in preserving an authentic Southern sound. He spit in his dip cup and said while important, it might not amount to much.

At the time, that might have been an understatement, but in the current climate of American stupidity, Daniels was probably right. When “Dixie” means “racism,” the entire fabric of American society is being torn to shreds. We’ve already added several Charlie Daniels tunes in this series, and there are a few more in the piece I linked above, so here are eighteen more great Charlie Daniels Band songs to pass the time and remember when. God speed Charlie, and I hope the angels played Dixie as you died.

More Deadly Than War – A Lecture by G. Edward Griffin: The Communist Revolution in America

 Via Greg

...The Blueprint for Revolution in America.... This address by G. Edward Griffin, given in 1968, is as current as today's headlines. Mr. Griffin shows that the Leninist strategy for conquest involves two kinds of revolution: One is violent; the other is non-violent. While most people think only of violent revolution, the non-violent phase is where most of the action has been in the United States. Leninists call it the Proletarian Revolution and it involves the gradual transition to Marxism (which is merely one form of collectivism) by use of the ballot box. Control is achieved through economic pressures rather than guns and executions. This program shows how Leninists utilize mass-membership organizations, politicians, and the parliamentary process to bring about totalitarianism with little opposition from those who are being subjugated.

Northam urges education leaders to remove Confederate names from schools


Gov. Ralph Northam (D) wants school systems across Virginia to change the names of schools honoring Confederate leaders.

"When our public schools are named after individuals who advanced slavery and systemic racism, and we allow those names to remain on school property, we tacitly endorse their values as our own," Northam wrote. "This is no longer acceptable.

AAP: This Fall, Get the Children Back in School & Guest-Workers Suspended

This Fall, Get the Children Back in School

“The American Academy of Pediatrics [AAP] has released a needed opinion that is strongly in favor of getting children back to school this fall,” the Washington Examiner editorial board writes.

“The AAP strongly advocates that all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school,” a statement from the group reads. President Trump is hosting a National Dialogue on Safely Reopening America’s Schools event at the White House today.

“President Trump just suspended nearly all guest-worker programs for the rest of the year. This historic executive order will open up more than 500,000 jobs to Americans—and it’ll disproportionately help Black citizens. These reforms aren’t mere rhetoric. They’re tangible proof that Donald Trump believes Black workers matter,” writes Tom Broadwater, an advocate for minority and other workers, in The Washington Times.

Coronavirus – The Politics of Duh


Florida is a great example of what happens when people are put into isolation for months and then suddenly allowed to mingle in bars, beaches, restaurants and other public places.


In isolation, the body’s immune system stops functioning properly. (For more on this, Science Alert details what happens to the brain and body in isolation.)

Deaths in Florida over the last two weeks varied from about 25 per day to a high of 68 per day. When you look at these figures, they’re not very high in a state with a population of nearly 22,000,000 people. In addition, many of the people who tragically died were not even tested for COVID-19 yet classified as COVID-19 deaths because their doctors suspected it. (Yes, the classification is that hazy and unscientific.)

Georgia Governor Brian Kemp To Deploy 1,000 National Guard Troops To Atlanta After Democrat Mayor Keisha Bottoms Fails To Stop Violence

 Brian Kemp, governor of Georgia, speaks during a 'Wear A Mask' tour stop in Dalton, Georgia, U.S., on Thursday, July 2, 2020. Governor Kemp on Wednesday expressed his skepticism about the need for a statewide mask mandate and his reluctance to impose one, calling it an issue he feels is "overpoliticized."

Georgia Republican Governor Brian Kemp on Monday authorized up to 1,000 National Guard troops to be deployed to Atlanta after the city’s mayor, Democrat Keisha Lance Bottoms, failed to stop the escalating violence in her city.

“Peaceful protests were hijacked by criminals with a dangerous, destructive agenda. Now, innocent Georgians are being targeted, shot, and left for dead,” Kemp said in a statement. “This lawlessness must be stopped and order restored in our capital city. I have declared a State of Emergency and called up the Georgia Guard because the safety of our citizens comes first. This measure will allow troops to protect state property and dispatch state law enforcement officers to patrol our streets.

Enough with the tough talk. We must protect the lives and livelihoods of all Georgians.”

The huge banner that still waved  September 14, 1814, Fort McHenry, Baltimore.

The November 2020 Election could effectively end the Constitutional Republic declared on July 4, 1776, and also close forever any chance of recovering it. The Democrat Party has become so thoroughly dominated by radical Marxist ideology that they are an extreme danger to freedom, future American prosperity, any resemblance to just government, and even national survival.
I do not believe Joe Biden will be the Democrat Presidential nominee. His increasing loss of mental competence is likely to result in his convenient replacement at the Democrat Convention or shortly thereafter.  The Democrats and their allied media are clearly making Trump-hatred their central issue, accompanied by opportunities to stir up racial tensions and white guilt. The less time the public gets to vet his replacement, the better for the Democrats.

Leave Calhoun Alone


Perhaps no American thinker has suffered more in recent days than John C. Calhoun, whose work and personage are often dismissed by his critics for a single phrase attributed to him, diminishing the careful and complicated analysis he deserves. Critics of Calhoun simplistically suggest his statecraft and thought, as well as his critique of America, serve a single purpose: the protection of his native South, especially the institution of slavery.

In our current climate, when all things Southern can be attacked and dismissed regardless of the accuracy of the criticisms, comes Professor Christian Anderson, a professor of education (not an historian or social scientist) at the University of South Carolina, who offers a strangely misguided and inaccurate diatribe against the Great Carolinian.  In his manifesto against all things Calhounian entitled “Dismantling John C. Calhoun’s Racist Legacy,” Anderson essentially credits Calhoun as the source of all the ills of modern America.[1] He is very proud of his article, having submitted and published the article in three different leftist (and “in house”) publications.

1950 VS 2020: The Price of Guns and Ammo

a chart comparing the cost of guns and ammo 1950 vs 2020

Many Americans old enough to remember the postwar 1950s think of those years with great fondness. After all, these were peaceful times when conformity and uniformity were common, and every family portrayed on television–families in which men worked and women tended the house and children–had smaller problems and plenty of support to get through them.

Jobs were plentiful, and many goods were made in the USA and affordable. Think about this: you could buy a brand-new Ford automobile for around $2,000, and the gasoline that fueled it was $.20 per gallon. The median home value was about $8,000, and you could enjoy a Philco TV in the living room for under $200!

Although much of the culture of the 1950s has been popularized via film and television, many still consider them to be the “Happy Days,” as shown in the popular 1970s sitcom. And many Americans continue to insist that it was also cheaper to live in those good old days. But was it really a more affordable time?

As gun owners, let’s travel through time through the decades to answer the question that has relevance for us:  Is it more or less expensive to own guns and buy ammo in 2020 than it was in 1950? The answers might surprise you:

I took part in a "protest" on July 4th in Westcliffe, CO. They didn't need me. In a town of about 800, I was one of 1000 protesters. This protest replaced the Independence Day parade that was made too difficult to hold due to Covid 19, but everyone knows that Covid is not spread via protest, so it was a protest.

Over the past five years, Westcliffe has held the biggest "open carry" contingent to its 4th of July parade in the state, an aggravating fact to the communists in public office. The protesters fought back and prevailed as did the citizens of Alamosa, a town just over the Sangre de Cristo mountains from Westcliffe. As did citizens in a neighboring county. This is push back and it gives a sense of the power of the people to take back their lives and traditions from those who want to destroy it. But, it does not solve the problem.

Southern Rock for the Apocalypse, Dixie Version

A good one for my funeral and afterwards a rousing Dixie!

The Orwellian nightmare known as 2020 continues. Not only are Confederate monuments and symbols under attack, seemingly benign references to anything Southern are now considered “racist.” Real estate listings that use the term “master bedroom” are being changed because the term is a reference to slavery, as does the word “plantation.” The State of Rhode Island is considering changing its official name by dropping “Providence Plantations” because it might make people feel uncomfortable. And then there’s Dixie, not just the song, but the word itself. Dixie State University in Utah is considering a name change, Dixie Brewing Company in Louisiana has dropped the name, and rumors swirled that Winn-Dixie grocery stores were thinking about removing Dixie from its brand.

This is insane. No reader of the Abbeville Institute needs a lesson on the history of the term or why merely mentioning “Dixie” has nothing to do with race–and never has–but we live in strange times.
 The tune Dixie is certainly forbidden in any respectable public gathering and will become, like the Scottish bagpipes after 1745, an outlawed tune if the woke social justice warriors gain ascendancy.

I thought it would be worthwhile to provide several fine examples of Dixie. Our regular series on Southern rock will return in the near future, but like Mickey Newbury who wrote “An American Trilogy”–famously performed by Elvis–to heal the United States during the Civil Rights movement, perhaps a generous round of Dixieland will soothe the soul in these times of troubles.

Southern Poets and Poems, Part X


A series by Clyde Wilson

EDGAR ALLAN POE (1809–1849) of Virginia was the great creative genius of 19th century American literature in poetry, fiction, and criticism. Although accidentally born in Boston and spending part of his foreshortened life earning a living in New York, Poe was, and unequivocally considered himself to be, a Southerner. In all his career he was in combat with the New England literary establishment, which he openly ridiculed as “the Frog-pondians,” writers who imagined that their little empire in Boston was the center of the world.

While the celebrated authors of New England were writing ditties about “barefoot boys with cheeks of tan,” sleigh rides to grandma’s house, and an imaginary Indian named Hiawatha, not to mention Emerson’s conceited secular sermons, Poe was expanding the musical potential of the English language and the frontiers of human imagination. The great Irish poet William Butler Yeats wrote that Poe was “certainly the greatest of American poets, and always and for every land, a great lyric poet.” Like some other Southern writers, notably Faulkner, Poe’s genius was appreciated in Europe when his reputation was ignored or slandered in Northeastern literary circles. It is possible to give only a slight but hopefully suggestive sample from his large body of poetic work.

Biden, Trump contributions: The President received twice as many individual contributions


Interesting in that it bodes well for the Trump turnout. 

 Marshall — $295 (2) Biden, $1,504 (5) Trump. (Where I grew up from the age of 5 until Vietnam.)

Total Fauquier County financial contributions to the presidential campaigns of Joe Biden (D) and Donald Trump (R) from Nov. 1, 2019, through May 31, 2020, according to the Virginia Public Access Project.

VPAP compiled the statistics from Federal Election Commission reports.

In Fauquier Mr. Biden received $41,850 during that period to $31,492 for Mr. Trump.        

The president, however, received almost twice as many individual contributions, 116 to 59 for the challenger.

Acting U.S. Attorney: We’ve Charged 150 Cases, Assisted with ‘Hundreds’ of Local Cases on Recent Violence

We've Charged 150 Cases, Assisted with 'Hundreds' of Local Cases ...

On Thursday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Michael Sherwin said that U.S. attorney’s offices have charged 150 cases related to property destruction and other crimes, and there have been hundreds of other cases brought on local charges through federal assistance with local officials in relation to recent violence in the country.

Sherwin said, “[P]eople can’t unilaterally decide what is right and what is wrong. And if those people do make that decision on their own and take the law into their own hands, the law will come after them and the United States will use federal resources to charge you if you’re inciting violence or destroying these monuments. That being said, under the leadership of President Trump, and the direction of the attorney general, the United States attorney’s offices across the United States have charged, to date, 150 federal cases related to, not only the destruction of federal property, but also a litany of other crimes that are really — have been lost in the shuffle.”

The Man who Correctly Predicted President Trump’s 2016 Win Predicts President Trump has a 91% Chance of Being Reelected in 2020

President Trump's Executive Order Protecting American Monuments

 Gone Hollywood | Blue Gray Review

I can not WAIT to celebrate the 4th of July this year!

I have always loved the 4th but this year it has special meaning as my personal protest against the hate-America mob that has wreaked havoc across the country in recent weeks.

I am going to think about every veteran who has ever served and especially our Confederate veterans who had the right to secede from what was, at that time, a tyrannical wealth-sucking government dominated by a region that sent terrorists into the South to murder Southerners.

They seceded with the greatest expression of democracy and self-government ever conducted on American soil, by conventions of the people which, like the ratifying conventions of the Constitution, were there to debate one issue: Secession.

“Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” will be performed live or played before “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to each NFL game during Week 1 and the league is considering putting names of victims of police brutality on helmet decals or jersey patches, a person familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press.

The person said the league is working collaboratively with players to recognize victims of systemic racism throughout the season in a variety of ways. The person spoke to the AP on Thursday on condition of anonymity because discussions between the league and the NFL Players Association are ongoing.

Blowout: The U.S. Economy Added 4.8 Million Jobs in June

American flag blowing in the wind against beautiful sunset.

“The economy has added around 7.3 million jobs in the past two months. The increase in the ranks of employed workers shows that companies ramped up hiring as the economy reopened and consumers came back to stores, restaurants, and other businesses that had been shuttered,” John Carney writes for Breitbart.

“The Trump administration’s aid programs appear to be working.”

“The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is deploying a special federal unit across the country for the July 4 weekend in order to protect federal monuments and statues from a possible fresh wave of vandalism . . . The move marks an aggressive response by the Trump administration to push back against the violence and vandalism seen aimed at monuments in recent weeks,” Adam Shaw reports for Fox News.

Republicans told to unite behind Trump or face 'radicalized future': 'Left poses an existential threat to our society'

Real Clear Politics

It’s time for all Republican lawmakers to unite behind President Trump unequivocally, especially as it is clearer than ever that the radical left poses an existential threat to our society that can only be defeated by a unified political movement this November.

While most establishment politicians get nervous around big elections, Donald Trump is not the type of leader who will compromise on his principles because of opinion polls and focus groups. For the past 3 ½ years, this president has done everything he can to empower American workers — and that is exactly what he will continue doing for four more years.

[Photos] A Walk on the Streets of Quaint 1966-1967 Da Nang


Like its namesake river, the Han Market remains a bustling destination attracting visitors and casual shoppers to the area today, just as it did decades ago.

Taken over the span of two years, 1966 and 1967, this collection of film photos brings us back to the small-town charm of Da Nang before it became the most dynamic metropolis in Central Vietnam, as we know it today. The photos’ author, Ron Holder, used to be part of the US Navy Support Activity Da Nang, and took these during his time based in the coastal town.

On the streets of Da Nang in the 1960s, áo dài was a mainstay for ladies of all ages; xích lô and xe lam (Lambretta) roamed freely, while personal vehicles were predominantly bicycles.
