It's been two weeks since the good folks of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho came out to protect their local downtown district against any possible ANTIFA antics.  In these past days I have had a chance to talk to some people, locals and visitors alike about their reaction to seeing SO MANY PEOPLE on a 6 block strip, all armed.  And I don't mean, concealed, I mean, right out there in your face, big guns...Ak's, AR's, 12 gauge shotguns, hand guns of every sort,  and most people didn't just have one gun, they had several.  There were moms, dads, college students, army vets, bikers, grandmas and grandpas and a variety of good ole boys.  The main street was was bumper to bumper with jacked up trucks with heavily armed people riding in the bed, American flags flyings from their tailgates, minivans, hybrid cars, old junkers and sparkling fancy cars, the scene almost rivaled our famous Car d'Alene event.  It really was something that none of us in this quaint little tourist town had ever experienced!  I for one was so proud of our town that it actually brought tears to my eyes.  And when my sons informed me that they were going downtown to help, I felt a twinge of anxiety mixed with extreme pride that they wanted to be apart of this, to protect the community where they were born and raised. To be clear, my sons are not members of the redneck, good boy club that so many in the media are insisting the majority of our residents are; one is finishing college in Aerospace Engineering and the other a suit & tie wearing executive...so there was all walks of life there.  

The really interesting thing about that night is the town was FULL of tourists.  Coeur d'Alene is a tourist town and since Idaho opened May 1st and many other  places were still in a contrived pandemic, HOSTAGE situation, by June 1st we were pretty full or folks looking for, some, "normal."  Not sure this is what they expected.

The Election

How Never Trump Spent Their First Year in Resistance

Many conservative sites are warning of disaster for the GOP in the 2020 elections—and they are blaming Donald Trump. Well, to be fair, in a way they’re right. Prior to Trump, conservatives had no other option but to vote Republican or stay home. And given the fact that even as the “lesser of two evils,” the Republican candidate had to be better than his or her Democratic opponent, this was the ongoing situation despite the fact that most elected Republicans were as useful as balls on a cow in stemming the Democrat rush to the left. During Obama’s illegitimate reign they played lap-dog and lickspittle to all of his communist trash even allowing “Chief Judas” Roberts to find Obamacare constitutional by ruling it a tax when in fact, taxes can only be levied by the House! Yet, for all of the Republican party’s failure to stop the leftward drive of the country, Republicans were still elected simply because there was no alternative—until Donald Trump!

With the election of someone outside of the control of the Deep State, congressional Republicans—in fact all Republicans—found themselves in a real quandary. They had won “big time!” They had prevailed against the entire Deep State, the Media, the Clintons, the Obamas and the alphabet bureaucracy only to find that the safe good old days of being the “loyal opposition” to the Democrat Left was no longer available to them! What to do?! What to do?! Why become “Never Trumpers,” of course! And that is what they did—and that’s why they’re in trouble!

American conservatives have determined that voting for the GOP is not going to end the steady leftward march of the nation and so they’re not going to put these people back in office—and that is a disaster for the Republican Party! True, if conservatives stay home or only vote for Trump and those who have supported him, more Democrats will be elected. But what difference does it make if the Democrats prevail with or without the Republicans? It is akin to that old Spanish proverb, “Whether the rock hits the pitcher or the pitcher hits the rock, it’s the worse for the pitcher.”

Are there any Republicans at least in the federal government who support Donald Trump? Yes, but very few. Apparently, Marco Rubio, once considered a “safe” conservative, voted against Trump’s efforts to build the wall. Shame on you, sir! Rand Paul, a high-profile conservative, has also refused to support the President’s call for a national emergency to fund the wall. Apparently, he doesn’t see one though only the blind and the dead cannot see what this ongoing invasion is doing to the nation. Shame on you sir! It is this sort of behavior that is going to guarantee a victory for the New Communist (aka Democratic) Party for the foreseeable future—or until there no longer is a future.

The majority of ordinary, decent Americans put Donald Trump in office in hopes of stemming the corruption of the Deep State. So far, Mr. Trump has done his best within the limits of his office without any support from the rest of his party and in the face of ongoing massive media
disinformation and government corruption. Meanwhile, he is blamed for everything from terrorist attacks to sunspots while his only defenders are those who voted him into office in the first place.

Will the Democrats win back everything in 2020? Between the current situation and massive voter fraud, it is more than possible. However, Donald Trump won’t be to blame if they do. It will simply be that the election of Mr. Trump was too little, too late to save this nation.

China’s Hong Kong ‘National Security’ Law Takes Effect, Ending Free Speech

HONG KONG, CHINA - SEPTEMBER 08: Protesters hold American flags as they walk through Central district during a march to petition the US Consulate on September 08, 2019 in Hong Kong, China. Pro-democracy protesters have continued demonstrations across Hong Kong since 9 June against a controversial bill which allows extraditions …

Chinese dictator Xi Jinping signed a decree on Tuesday enacting a “national security” law that allows the Communist Party to antagonize and prosecute dissidents in Hong Kong, triggering global condemnation and widespread concern among participants in the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.

The city – technically part of a China, but legally autonomous from Beijing – has experienced over a year of ongoing protests against China’s many attempts to undermine the “One Country, Two Systems” policy that allows Hongkongers the right to free speech and free assembly. The protest movement took off in mid-2019 in response to a proposed law in the Hong Kong Legislative Council (LegCo) that would have allowed China to extradite anyone present in the city if accused of violating Communist Party laws, which include prison sentences for crimes like “picking quarrels and provoking trouble.”

The Deep Identity of the South

                                                               Conrad Wise Chapman

The Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin lists three kinds of identity in his book Eurasian Mission – diffused, extreme, and deep.  The diffused identity is vague and unconscious so it contributes little to a person’s or a society’s way of viewing himself or itself or the world (Eurasian Mission: An Introduction to Neo-Eurasianism, Arktos, U.K., 2014, p. 116).  It resembles the mindset of Andrew Lytle’s ‘momentary man’, who is aware only of the concerns and pleasures of the present hour. \

The extreme identity ‘is an arbitrary and artificial creation of some rational formula that pretends to express and manifest the diffused identity in the intellectual realm.  Here the identity becomes an ideology, a conceptual framework, or a theory’ (Ibid.).  This should sound disturbingly familiar to Southerners, as it describes precisely the Yankee ideology of ‘Americanism’, of America as a proposition nation.  Accordingly, it equates ideological speculations with the essence of a people, which can only lead to the obscuring and/or disfiguring of the real identity of that people (Ibid.).
The deep identity, however, is different.  It is the true self:

The War of Ignorance against Robert E. Lee

Robert E. Lee, Confederate General in March 1864   

Lee, (By Dixie Townsend, Nine Years Old)

The Slander of a Gallant Soldier, Noble Patriot, and True Christian With Rejoinder by President Dwight D. Eisenhower


On June 11, General Jack Keane, U.S. Army (ret.) appeared on at least two evening Fox News shows.  Although he agreed with President Trump’s position not to rename Army bases named for Confederate generals, for some reason, he went out of his way to condemn Confederates, including Robert E. Lee as traitors. I saw it on Shannon Bream’s show. This was in the midst of wave after wave of wanton mob destruction of not only Confederate monuments but American monuments generally.  Having had a high opinion of Keane as a military analyst, I was shocked that he apparently knew so little about what the Southern cause really was—independence for a number of strong economic,  taxation, constitutional, and general fairness reasons—and that he would specifically slander Robert E. Lee as a traitor.

Police Consider Charging Crowd Confronted By Armed St. Louis Couple With Trespassing, Intimidation


FindLaw explains, “This legal doctrine assumes that if an invader disrupts the sanctity of your home, they intend to do you harm and therefore you should be able to protect yourself or others against an attack. Missouri’s law is more extensive than those of other states because it allows you to use deadly force to attack an intruder to protect any private property that you own, in addition to yourself or another individual. This means that if someone illegally enters your front porch or backyard, you can use deadly force against them without retreating first.”

“At any point that you enter the property, they can then, in Missouri, use deadly force to get you off the lawn,” said Walker, adding.....

Democrat Party Begins Demonizing Mount Rushmore, Refers To July 4 Celebration As ‘Glorifying White Supremacy’

 A very patriotic monument, Mount Rushmore is a giant granite cliff in South Dakota with the heads of four US presidents - Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Roosevelt (Teddy) - carved into it.It's big. Very big.

The Democrat Party began attacking Mount Rushmore on Monday night from their official Twitter account and referred to upcoming Independence Day celebrations at the famed monument as “glorifying white supremacy.”

“Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again,” the Democrats wrote. “He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore – a region once sacred to tribal communities.”

One Man’s Supreme Court: The Chief Justice relies on an abortion precedent he dissented from.


So much for all those crocodile fears about the end of abortion rights. The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Monday that a state can’t even require abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a hospital.

And the logic of the concurring opinion from Chief Justice John Roberts, who provided the fifth vote, suggests not even de minimis regulation of abortion will survive his Court’s scrutiny.

A woman’s right to abortion wasn’t at issue in June Medical Services v. Russo. No woman seeking an abortion was a plaintiff. The case was brought by abortion providers, who claimed that Louisiana’s requirement that they have admitting privileges at a hospital would be an undue burden on the ability of women to obtain an abortion.

Here’s the stunner: Four years ago a different Court majority overturned a similar Texas statute, with then Justice Anthony Kennedy joining the four liberals. Chief Justice Roberts dissented in that case.

Yet on Monday the Chief joined the liberals, citing his duty to follow precedent.

White Privilege – Guilty As Charged

Via Jonathan

This is a slightly updated version of something I first wrote and published on February 17, 2011. It could be considered an illustration of my personal motto – Not for Our Time, but for All Time. Not for All People, but for Our People – and it remains one of my favorites.

One cannot be a vocal advocate of the Southern people, and our heritage and culture, without encountering the topic of race on a regular basis. It shouldn’t be that way but it is, so it must be confronted head-on.

We have all been hearing recently about the concept of White Privilege – what our accusers seem to define as an unearned, unmerited advantage that Whites have over other races. To that I answer, “Guilty As Charged.”

Let’s look at this White Privilege that gives me an “unfair” advantage over others:

Tucker: Ordinary citizens stand up as politicians cower to the rage mob

North Carolina Sheriffs: It’s not our job to enforce the governor’s ‘mask orders’ – they are ‘not constitutional’

Via Jonathan

 North Carolina Sheriffs: It's not our job to enforce the governor's 'mask orders' - they are 'not constitutional'
Do it yourself.

That’s essentially the message that a group of sheriffs in North Carolina are sending to the governor over what they believe are unconstitutional mask orders.

Across the country, a number of governors have issued Executive Orders mandating the use of masks while in the public.

The majority of these orders specify that persons who cannot be a minimum of six feet apart and indoors must wear a mask or face a fine or imprisonment.  No one disputes that the numbers of positive cases have grown recently, but there is dispute as to what those numbers really mean.

The Problem With Lincoln


“The problem with Lincoln is the problem with America,” said my friend Clyde Wilson when I asked him for a blurb for my new book, The Problem with Lincoln (Regnery, 2020).  That in fact is the theme of the book, written seventeen years after my first book on the subject, The Real Lincoln (TRL), as I shall explain.  A secondary theme comes from something that an academic reviewer of The Real Lincoln wrote at the end of his review seventeen years ago:  “Lincoln was even worse” than I portrayed him as being.

How was Lincoln “worse”; let us count the ways.  Lincoln was in fact an even more extreme racist and white supremacist (a typical man of the North, in other words) than I argued in TRL.  This speaks volumes not just of Lincoln but of the Lincoln cult in academe that has covered up these truths for generations.  In The Problem with Lincoln I document page after page of his own statements and declarations demonstrating this point, something that should inspire the current crop of left-wing “protesters,” arsonists, and vandals to begin dismantling all the Lincoln statues that scar the land.

Washington & Lee Professors Call for Removal of Robert E. Lee’s Name from University

Camp Douglas Memorial #516

I told my sister fairly recently that the Lee family should demand the removal of Lee's name and move all the Lee family members from their resting places including Traveller to have the SCV take honorable care of them.
100 Professors at Washington & Lee University are calling for the removal of General Robert E. Lee’s from the university’s name. In 1870 the university’s name was changed from Washington University after Lee assumed the role of university president.

According to a report by Campus Reform, faculty members at Washington & Lee University are calling for a change to the university’s name. The report claims that more than 100 professors at the university have called on administrators to erase the university’s relationship with Robert E. Lee. The most significant change would involve changing the university’s name.

Treason and treachery are rampant and our rule of law and those law enforcement professionals who uphold our laws are under the gun more than at any time in our nation’s history.

And as we stand at the ready, as comrades-in-arms, awaiting another “shot heard round the world”, each of us must ask himself the one question that defines courage and resolve on the brink of historical decision. What are you willing to sacrifice for freedom? Resist Tyranny
While July Fourth has special meaning for Americans, our Independence Day celebrates the concept of the sovereign individual, a world view and an ideal that extends far beyond our borders.

For centuries, man was ruled by autocrats and despots who owned everything and everyone, controlled all property, and had the authority to dictate the course of events in their realm.  Common man eked out his sparse existence with the constant anxiety of an uncertain future.  No part of his day to day life was secure or safe from the whims of the monarch who controlled his fate.

The Sunrise Movement Preplanned The Minneapolis Riots, They Just Were Awaiting For A Trigger, To Initiate A Riot With Precision

Via Carl

By Capt Joseph R. John, June 18, 2020: Op Ed # 494

By watching the above video, you will understand what The Sunrise Movement is, and why so many young white students are being recruited by them.

The Sunrise Movement teaches students that White Supremacy is the reason for Systemic Racism in the US and that Climate Change is a white problem.

For two years, the left of center liberal media establishment covered up the facts about The Sunrise Movement’s recruiting and training program.

The video outlines the two year, behind the scenes, training program of white students, on how to participate in a race riots, when an event triggers a race riot.

The Attorney General of Minnesota, Keith Ellison, is the true force behind The Sunrise Movement, ANTIFA, and CAIR in Minnesota.

When Keith Ellison was Deputy Chair of the Democrat Party, he moved the Democrat Party toward Socialism, knowing that Socialism is Marxist inspired.

Keith Ellison is an Islam convert; he called for a separate country for blacks in the US, and wrote racist articles under, his real name, Keith Hakim Mohammad.

The Muslim Brotherhood International Terrorist organization paid for Keith Hakim Mohammad’s pilgrimage to Mecca in 2008.

Ellison strongly supports Louis Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam; he disrespects for the US Constitution; he said “Its wording was inspired by the Bible.”

Ellison has been close to the Communist Party, USA, and held a fundraising event in the home of Minnesota’s Communist Party Chair, Erwin Marquit.

Keith Ellison is a very close associate of Luis Enrique Marquez, who flies the Communist flag, and is the leader of ANTIFA in Portland’s Rose City.

ANTIFA rioters are the violent Communist Domestic Terrorist “Foot Soldiers”; the logo on the ANTIFA flag was created by the German Communist Party. 

Ellison’s photo is pictured on the Internet, holding the manual of the ANTIFA Domestic Terrorists; their manual calls for uprising and riots in the US.

Atty Gen Keith Ellison is the defacto leader of ANTIFA & CAIR in Minnesota; Ilhan Omar, one of his creations, has the same campaign manager as him.

When George Floyd was killed by a rogue Police Officer, employing improper restraint procedures, ANTIFA had the trigger it was waiting for to initiate race riots.

Members of CAIR were present to "film" George Floyd's death outside of Cup Foods in Minneapolis, then CAIR distributed the video worldwide.

Within 24 hours of Floyd's death, thousands of The Sunrise Movement trained rioters looted and torched Minneapolis; Police Officers stood down, and let it burn.

CAIR organized the looters, ANTIFA organized the arsonists, Black Lives Matter led the rioters. (Real News Network: Peggy Traeger Tierney: Jun 16, 2020)

The chant from rioters was that “Police Officers had been killing black youth”, to “defund, eliminate, and replace the Police Forces”.

Socialists, Progressives, Marxists, Communists, and the Socialist Democrat Party mobilized rioters in 184 cities; Nazi Sympathizer George Soros funded the riots.

Keith Ellison's son, Jeremiah, who runs the Minneapolis City Council, pledged allegiance to ANTIFA, and led the effort that eliminated the city’s police department.

By creating Racial Strife Ellison’s allies hoped to defeat President Trump, then change the US Constitutional Republic to a Socialist State.

Riots initiated in Minneapolis by ANTIFA that spread to 184 cities, have the fingerprints of Marxists, Socialists, Communists, and George Soros.

ANTIFA’s “Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement” (RAM) has been leading the national effort to deface and destroying over 350 US historical monuments.

Communists want Americans to believe they are divided by race. THEY ARE NOT! The only divide is COMMUNISTS vs FREE AMERICANS.

America’s true systemic flaw, arising at the time of those miserable progressives of yesteryear and continuing up through the miserable progressives of this rotten year, is what we now call “liberalism.”

Oh, it’s not classical liberalism, with its concern for expanding economic and personal rights – you know, individual liberty. The current inverted mutation of liberalism is all about constricting economic and personal rights and forcing individuals into collective boxes where their individuality is subsumed into an easily exploited and manipulated conformist whole.

America’s Civil War: Pre-Dawn Assault on Fort Stedman

Near Petersburg, Virginia, in the frosty pre-dawn hours of March 25, 1865, a Union sentry in front of Fort Stedman could hear the faint rustle of dry cornstalks quite clearly. ‘I say, Johnny,’ he shouted as he brought his weapon to full cock, ‘what are you doing in that corn?’ Sharpshooters might rule the daylight hours, but at night the opposing pickets, separated by less than 500 feet, often became quite chummy.

‘All right, Yank, I am just gathering me a little corn to parch,’ came the answer.

‘All right Johnny, I won’t shoot.’

A bit later the Federal asked, ‘I say, Johnny, isn’t it almost daylight? I think it is time they were relieving us.’

‘Keep cool, Yank; you’ll be relieved in a few minutes.’

The Simcoe Compromise bill of July 1793 did not free any slaves in then-Upper Canada, but did forbid the importation of slaves into that Province. Ironically, once Michigan was incorporated as a US territory in 1805, slaves escaping from Upper Canada were fleeing across the border – by 1806 there were sufficient free blacks in Detroit for form their own militia unit, as would be the case in New Orleans and its Louisiana Native Guards. In 1861, the latter was the first black unit to serve in the American Civil War, and for the South.

With the leader of the rabid Trump-hating neocon warmongers (who are always wrong on everythingBill Kristol optimistically saying about President Trump yesterday: “You look at the polls and think he can’t win”, this report concludes, being kept by the leftist mainstream from the masses of the American people is that new voter registrations for the socialist Democrat Party “have fallen off a cliff” because of what they claim is the coronavirus—but whose truest reason for was recently stunningly revealed by a little noticed ABC News brief that warned: “strong enthusiasm for Biden among his supporters – at just 24% – is the lowest on record for a Democratic presidential candidate in 20 years of ABC/Post polls”—a massive lack of enthusiasm for Biden not shared by President Trump, whom 68% of his voters enthusiastically support—which explains why on the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for 25 June, it shows Trump being at 47%, as opposed to Obama being at 45% on this same date just prior to his 2012 reelection victory—an important poll to note because Rasmussen was one of the most accurate polls in the 2016 election—but whose most accurate to the point prediction about the 2016 election was a collaboration poll between Investor’s Business Daily and TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence —an IBD/TIPP poll conducted and paid for by the world’s top financial analysts, none of whom will accept even the slightest whiff of propaganda in the polls they pay millions-of-dollars for—is why the IBD/TIPP Poll was America’s most accurate national poll in the 200420082012 and 2016 presidential elections, making it the most accurate in each of the last four election cycles—and who this past week posted on their public news page an article titled “TRUMP WILL WIN BIG BECAUSE CIVILIZATION IS AT STAKE”.

So cheer up, I know a lot of people are feeling and even saying that Trump’s chances aren’t looking so good lately. Even the Wifely Unit was saying it yesterday.

The time swiftly is coming in America when everyone will be forced to "pick a side" in what has become "an all-out socialist attack on our Republic," says country rock superstar Charlie Daniels.

I Stand With The South


As someone who came to the Southern Conservative tradition late this moment feels very strange. I have inculcated affection for the South my whole life without living there very often, or even knowing it was the South that I was pledging allegiance to. But it keeps turning out that everything I value, everything I believe, is deeply Southern. Yet my affection comes at a distance. I call myself a Southern Conservative because I don’t think Conservativism can be dislocated, there is no general form of Conservatism. It always needs description. And yet for someone who describes himself as Southern I have not been located very often within the South.

As the monuments come down I see the obvious folly but do not feel much in the way of sadness or anger. It is easy to be angry at cowards like Rich Lowry who have made a career out of compromise with the American left and consistently betrayed Conservatism. It only takes reading a little bit of the incomparable Paul Gottfried to understand just how distorted “movement Conservatism” has always been. The NeoCons and “Capitalists” really took over in the mid twentieth century and National Review rarely looked back. Russel Kirk was spilling ink over their Straussian heads the whole time.

“It would be a task of many pages if I attempted to give a full account of the origin and causes of slavery in Africa. As a national institution, it seems to have existed always. Africans have been bondsmen everywhere: and the oldest monuments bear their images linked with menial toils and absolute servitude.

England to-day, with all her philanthropy, sends, under the Cross of St. George, to convenient magazines of lawful commerce on the [African] coast, Birmingham muskets, Manchester cottons, and Liverpool lead, all of which are righteously swapped at Sierra Leone, Acra, and on the Gold Coast, for Spanish or Brazilian bills on London.

Yet what British merchant does not know the traffic on which those bills are founded, and for whose support his wares are purchased?  France . . . dispatches her Rouen cottons, Marseille brandies, flimsy taffetas, and indescribable variety of tinsel geegaws. Germany demands a slice for her looking-glasses and beads; while multitudes of our own worthy [Boston] traders, who would hang a slaver as a pirate when caught, do not hesitate to supply him indirectly with tobacco, powder, cotton, Yankee rum, and New England notions, in order to bait the trap in which he may be caught. It is the temptation of these things, I repeat, which feeds the slave-making wars of Africa, and forms the human basis of those admirable bills of exchange.

Such may be said to be the predominating influence that supports the African slave trade; yet, if commerce of all kinds were forbidden with that continent, the customs and laws of the natives would still encourage slavery as a domestic affair, though of course in a very modified degree.

A slave is a note of hand that may be discounted or pawned; he is still a bill of exchange that carries him to his destination and pays the debt bodily . . . Thus, slavery is not likely to be surrendered by the Negroes themselves as a national institution.”

Comment on Weakness and Betrayal

In 2001, Mississippi voted against replacing the state flag, which sports the Confederate emblem. But sentiment is changing.

The Rev. Bryan Dabney


 It appears that the Mississippi Legislature is faced with a “full court press” involving an assortment of sports magnates, big business types, celebrities, well as a "who's who " list of past and current Republican officeholders all in a quest to change our state flag.

And all of this is being done under the rubrics of “tolerance, inclusion and peace.” It’s a “fool’s errand” for the simple reason that any design they come up with will likely not pass muster with the Leftist malcontents.  They may have something in mind, or they may not because BLM is a Marxist organization bent on revolution. The Alinsky rules are quite clear— no compromises with opponents only complete submission.

The sad thing is that those who would compromise away of our history are only interested in placating the monster before us. Their excuses for such behavior are various. They likely want to avoid any potentially barbarous actions— such as looting and vandalism. They would like to have football this fall without the loss of players or coaches. Oh, and business deals, let's not forget them either— the ol' quid pro quo of “get rid of the flag and we'll bring commerce your way.” There is nothing sacred and no principle which will not be sacrificed to these beasts among us and all for profit or preference.

Needless to say this will end badly if the Legislature gives in— and I don't mean regarding just the issue of changing the flag. There will be endless harangues by Leftists who will press the “powers that be” to give up even more, which they will. And on that account, we will all learn again the hard lesson of September, 1939: that appeasement does not work as it only encourages the appeased to push for more concessions.

God help us.


"This fall, the air will be redolent of gunsmoke, I think, along with the burning leaves."

I cannot but believe that many of the destroyed, disfigured and disgraced statues and monuments were GOVERNMENT property; those that were in public places but technically 'private' property had 'privileged' position, and had a right to government protection.

They had long since been awarded government recognition for their historical and cultural significance.  Am I to understand that the Missions in San Antonio, would be allowed to fall to the ravages of the bolshevik mobs?  "For Floyd"?  Will they be allowed to burn USS Constitution at Boston 'just 'cause'? 

The revolutionary horde burnt private AND PUBLIC property, looted private AND PUBLIC property, killed private citizens AND PUBLIC EMPLOYEES.  Yes, Trump could have, and should have acted under several authorities - Commander in Chief; to call out the Militia to preserve public order and protect public property. Chief Executive Officer, SWORN TO UPHOLD THE LAW, to deputize local law enforcement and break the riots at first blood.

To say I'm disappointed is to put it mildly.  I see a very tired man, whose age is catching up with him, and whose burdens grow heavier by the day.  I also see a weary executive who is ill served by his advisors and staff.  That the Bushes hate him and their cohort blocks Trump at every turn, that Romney Rinos hate him and block his every effort, and that the Dungrats are in active rebellion would wear down Gibraltar.  I've had a sneaking suspicion he would withdraw before the election and leave it to Pence, if he's not assassinated first.


Masks: NC Sheriff's Association

Regarding your mask thread. I got this notification from the NC Sheriff's Association yesterday.

Senate Bill 704 Temporarily Authorizes Masks in Public for Health & Safety Due to COVID-19.

With the enactment in May, 2020 of Section 4 of Senate Bill 704, a person is now temporarily authorized to wear a mask in public and on private premises (such as in a shopping mall) for the “purpose of ensuring the physical health or safety of the wearer or others.” The person wearing a mask for health or safety reasons must remove the mask upon the request of a law enforcement officer during a traffic stop (including at a checkpoint or roadblock) or criminal investigation.

This temporary authorization only applies to the misdemeanors described above but DOES NOT apply to the felonies described above. 

This temporary authorization expires on August 1, 2020. If the General Assembly does not extend this temporary provision of law, it will again be a Class 1 misdemeanor for any person to wear a mask in public (including those with a concealed handgun permit whether or not they are carrying a concealed handgun) unless one of the other exceptions described above applies.

Weakness and Betrayal

 CSM203-01 - Pro-Confederate Civil War Sheet Music, 1853-1876 -

First off, thank you for the many informative posts that have helped in my education of our shared history.

I write in a moment of sadness as the last truly Southern state flag will in all likelihood be history tomorrow.

Our worthless legislatures in the once great state of Mississippi will hold a vote on removing our long honored state flag.  This beautiful flag reminded us of our past so it must not be allowed to stand.  I am not so wed to our state symbol that a change would be unconscionable, but as usual feckless men will not allow a statewide referendum.  This is what troubles me more than which flag will fly atop our capitol.

Back in 2001 we had a referendum in which the good citizens of our state voted to keep our historical flag unchanged.  This time, however, weak men fear the same outcome so they will deny the citizens a voice as all vassal rulers do when pleasing their overlords is not assured. 

It is a sad state of affairs in this once proud state.  Municipal governments removing Confederate monuments to the simple soldier who answered the call of the state never to return and are called all sorts of disgusting and grotesque things as if these simpletons understood one iota of what these brave men thought or went through.  The once proud University of Mississippi will remove it's Confederate monument in an attempt to erase the men who founded the college.  They were once called the Ole Miss Rebels with Colonel Reb as the mascot playing "Dixie" and waiving the St. Andrews cross.  No more.  All have been whittled away over time.  One symbol at a time over thirty years.  The original founding class composed entirely of war veterans means nothing to these Marxists.

An old friend from the north is distraught over the destruction of Grant, Washington, Columbus and so forth.  I simply responded "If you wouldn't defend Lee, why are you  surprised ."   After all, of all the notable southern personalities, Lee should be the easiest to defend simply due to his unquestionable honor and the respect his adversaries on the battlefield held for him before, during and after that horrible conflict.  

Our destructive media constantly accepts the the destruction of Southern monuments as permissible even when condemning the destruction of their own.  They use phrases such as "It's not even a Confederate statue" or "He fought for the union."   Each failing to realize that condoning one actually leads to the next.  One commentator said he found every Confederate monument "despicable, disgusting and reprehensible." and then said mobs shouldn't tear them down but they should come down after due process.  In other words, they must come down. 

The hatred and vitriol toward the Southern man is the worst I've seen in my fifty some odd years.  Patrick Buchanan recently wrote in an article titled "Cancel the White Man - and What's Left?"  that we are in a "second reconstruction."  I rarely disagree with him, but I believe  we are in a Maoist Cultural Revolution.

What can we do?  Well, stay firm in the truth, pray to almighty God daily, teach your children well and always be prepared for battle should it be necessary because I do believe in divine providence.  A nation that walks away from God is a nation no more.

Anyway, I'm sorry for the rant if you made it this far.

May God bless you and your family

The Washington Post: Fake News AND Fake History

 "Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity."--Robert E. Lee - Confederate History Books and DVDs - The South - Black Confederates - Southern History - Slavery Not Cause of Civil War - Right of Secession - War Between the States - World History - World War I - World War II - The World Wars - Bonnie Blue Publishing - Gene Kizer, Jr. - Charleston Athenaeum Press Logo

The Washington Post article, "Destroying Confederate monuments isn't 'erasing' history. It's learning from it."1 by African American associate professor Keisha N. Blain of the University of Pittsburgh, proves that not only does the Washington Post peddle in fake news, it peddles fake history.

Professor Blain's contention in the short article is that "Confederate monuments, as well as Confederate-named Army bases, are modern inventions meant to distort history and celebrate a racist past" because:
These symbols serve one primary purpose - to honor figures of the past who upheld an undemocratic vision of America. They were created by white supremacists. And they function as a balm for white supremacists who long to return to a period when Americans regarded black people as property.
This is a silly, self-important view of history by a person obsessed with race.

Trump Signs Executive Order Protecting Monuments. Barr Creates Task Force To Tackle Extremists, Includes Antifa.

 WASHINGTON, DC - JULY 11: U.S. President Donald Trump makes a statement on the census with Attorney General William Barr in the Rose Garden of the White House on July 11, 2019 in Washington, DC. President Trump, who had previously pushed to add a citizenship question to the 2020 census, announced that he would direct the Commerce Department to collect that data in other ways.

President Donald Trump and Attorney General William Barr both took new steps on Friday to combat the extremists who have been wreaking havoc across the country in recent weeks and to protect America’s monuments.

Trump tweeted late on Friday, “I just had the privilege of signing a very strong Executive Order protecting American Monuments, Memorials, and Statues – and combatting recent Criminal Violence. Long prison terms for these lawless acts against our Great Country!”

Great News! Dixie Chicks Change Their Name to The Chicks

Wrights stickers S series
Good riddance to bad rubbish and Antebellum too. Now if Emily would just change her name, as she disgraces my Mother's. 

Conf. Mem. Day-05, 10, 1911

Country band The Dixie Chicks changed its name to The Chicks. The new name now appears on the trio’s newly-released song and their social media accounts.

The move comes as The Chicks — comprised of Emily Strayer, Natalie Maines, Martie Maguire — dropped their new single “March March” off their fifth studio album Gaslighter on Thursday about the ongoing protests sparked by the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody in Minneapolis. The trio has changed its website URL as well as its official Twitter and Instagram account handle to reflect their new name.

AG Barr: 500 Investigations Underway Into Riots. Antifa Involved, They Want To ‘Tear Down’ The U.S.

Attorney General William Barr told “Verdict with Ted Cruz” this week that the Department of Justice has hundreds of investigations underway into the violent riots that have occurred across the country in recent weeks, including investigations into the far-left extremist organization Antifa.

“The federal government is best positioned to address this kind of violence and lawlessness after it occurs because we don’t have FBI agents walking the beat,” Barr said. “And in fact, when the real violence started around May 25, 26, and so forth, we started using our joint terrorist task forces around the country. And there are 35 of them around the country. It involves all state and local in those jurisdictions and all the federal agencies. And it’s the system we designed to follow terrorists.
And now they are starting to go full bore, cranking out investigations, indictments against the people
 who are involved in this violence.”

NC: “Let the Rioters do their Worst; I won’t Stand in Their way!”

And he did so in spite of—in open violation of—the Heritage Protection Act [Monuments Protection Act] of 2015 [G.S. § 100-2.1] which specifically enjoined and forbade the removal of North Carolina’s historic monuments by any level of government authority.  

Governor Roy Cooper of North Carolina comes across as a nice man, well-mannered, calm, the kind of man you would want as a neighbor and, yes, as a friend. He seems unthreatening in how he speaks, always with a very slight but perceptible eastern North Carolina accent.  In short, he radiates a down home “you can trust me” charm.

Except for one thing: it’s all a façade, false, a mask hiding a far darker side of his character. His likable demeanor disguises an individual—North Carolina’s chief executive officer—who has been largely responsible for giving the green light to looting, mob violence, and the blatant destruction of symbols and artifacts of our history.

A Country Not Salvageable Nor, Many Say Quietly, Worth Saving


What fun, what entertainment. And rare: One seldom sees the collapse of a landmark society in a rush of wondrous idiocy. Would I could sell tickets. Don’t look at it as a loss, but as a show, an unwanted but grand amusement.

The coup de grace in our ripening decadence is the current uprising purportedly, though implausibly, over racism. But never mind. The causes don’t matter. The deal is done.

Still, it is interesting to recognize that the protesters are, perhaps deliberately, confusing the incapacity of blacks with systemic racism. In truth, America has made the greatest effort ever essayed by one race to uplift another. Reflect: In 1954 an entirely white Supreme Court unanimously ended segregation. Later it found the use of IQ tests by employers illegal because blacks scored poorly, then found “affirmative action,” racial discrimination against whites, legal (hardly oppression of blacks, this). An overwhelmingly white Congress passed the Civil Rights Act in 1964, the Voting Rights Act the next year. A white President sent troops to Little Rock to enforce desegregation. There has been an enormous flow of charity to blacks: Section Eight Housing, AFDC, Head Start, hiring quotas, set-asides, sharply lowered standards in police and fire departments. We now have free breakfasts for black children, then free lunches, in addition to outright welfare. In aggregate they resemble a distributed guaranteed basic income. Which is interesting.

Pew Research: Only 1-in-6 Protesters Are Black, 46 Percent Are White


Only about one-in-six protesters over the last month are black Americans, while the plurality are white, according to Pew Research Center analysis.

Though recent protests and riots have been centered around racial tensions with law enforcement, only 17 percent of protesters have been black, while 46 percent are white, 22 percent are Hispanic, and eight percent are Asian, the analysis shows.
