“Who’s your people?”

 Hadn't thought of this in years but do remember.

Ultimately, I would argue that this sense of belonging can only be found in God and the Kingdom of Heaven, because it is for that eternal, transcendent destiny that our hearts crave. Nevertheless, in an imperfect, if very real manner, that longing can also be satisfied by truly investing ourselves in a particular place, taking pride in its unique history and culture, and binding ourselves to it so tenaciously that our children will in turn desire to preserve it. There remain pockets of such ancestral communitarian across Dixie, though globalist economic forces, secular materialism, and sexual libertinism are doing much to unravel them. We, like the Southern Agrarians, must take our own stand against this, lest our children discover that they themselves have no people.

“Who’s your people?” Though now somewhat rare, one still hears that question in Dixie, usually uttered from the lips of older or rural Southerners. Much is implied by the question.

There is the implicit belief that one’s extended family — or clan, given much of the region’s Scotch-Irish roots — serves as an inextricable part of one’s identity. Also implied is that one’s clan says something about you, whether for good or for ill. But perhaps most saliently, it communicates the fact that Southern culture is in important respects intrinsically communitarian, and rejects the sort of radical individualism that has often defined the broader American ethos.

 Southern historians Eugene and Elizabeth Fox Genovese in their 2005 book The Mind of the Master Class: History and Faith in the Southern Slaveholders’ Worldview, devote an entire chapter to this quality of Southern identity. Titled “Between Individualism and Corporatism: From the Reformation to the War for Southern Independence,” the chapter explores the way Southerners sought to make sense of themselves both as members of a particular American subculture and participants in a broader socio-political project. Like much of the Genovese’s scholarship, their expert research exposes the inadequacies of popular caricatures of the South, while also serving as a catechesis and warning for those seeking to defend their way of life.

Josh Hawley: Strip Schools of Federal Funds if They Teach Founding Documents Are Racist

London McCoy, 10, right, and Jaclyn Williams, 10, do homework during their study hall session at View Park Prep Charter School Tuesday, Oct. 11, 2005, in South Los Angeles. Specialty schools that shun many of the methods of traditional public schools are no longer just the purview of privileged suburban …

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) on Monday introduced the “Love America Act,” designed to combat Critical Race Theory in classrooms, in part by prohibiting federal funding to schools where founding texts of the United States are taught as products of white supremacy and racism.

According to Hawley’s office, the bill is designed to “promote patriotism in education and fight back against the spread of anti-American, critical race theory classes in K-12 education.”

UNITED STATES Homeschooling surges across US: More Than Double in Six Months: 90% Won't Go Back


The surge has been confirmed by the U.S. Census Bureau, which reported in March that the rate of households homeschooling their children rose to 11% by September 2020, more than doubling from 5.4% just six months earlier.

Although the pandemic disrupted family life across the U.S. since taking hold in spring 2020, some parents are grateful for one consequence: They're now opting to homeschool their children, even as schools plan to resume in-person classes.

The specific reasons vary widely. Some families who spoke with The Associated Press have children with special educational needs; others seek a faith-based curriculum or say their local schools are flawed. The common denominator: They tried homeschooling on what they thought was a temporary basis and found it beneficial to their children.

Socialism in America It’s here, but we need it to go, not grow.

“Marxists often refer to socialism as the first, necessary phase on the way from capitalism to communism.” — (November 2020)

“The goal of socialism is communism.” —Vladimir Lenin

Americans need to stand shoulder to shoulder in unity against socialism, now the economic platform of the political Left. The very ideology that has destroyed nations and millions of lives is at the core of the Democrats’ policy playbook and growing more and more popular among younger ideologues who are indoctrinated to believe Big Government cares for them.

Younger adults stupidly embrace socialism because they have not learned their history. Most Americans have some idea that more than six million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust by Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist German Workers’ Party (the Nazis), though they’re under the grossly mistaken assumption that Nazis were “right-wing.” Yet few know that more than 100 million were put to death at the hands of communists — the Soviet Union’s Joseph Stalin, China’s Mao Zedong, Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh, North Korea’s Kim Il Sung, Cambodia’s Pol Pot, Ethiopia’s Mengistu Haile Mariam, and Cuba’s Fidel Castro.

DHS withheld July intelligence bulletin calling out Russian attack on Biden's  mental health - ABC News

This month, the Biden administration withdrew a Trump administration Department of Homeland Security regulation that was designed to protect Americans from violent Islamic terrorists or Chinese spies who use their student visas to stay in the United States.

On July 6, the Biden administration withdrew Proposed Rule 2020-20845, which spoke of the threat from Chinese spies and Islamic terrorists as it attempted to monitor the status of student visa holders in the United States. The rule, proposed by the Trump administration DHS in September 2020, would have required student visa holders to “renew them every two or four years and to check that they are still in good standing at universities.”

CRT Transformation of the American Military: Neo-Marxist Subversion and its Washington Allies



Mark Milley, Chief of Naval Operations Michael Gilday, Air Force Chief of Staff Charles Q. Brown, Jr, the leading candidate to replace Milley as CJCOS, and Bishop Garrison, of the National Security Institute, and Senior Advisor to the Secretary of Defense on Human Capital, Diversity, “Equity,” and Inclusion, who according to Horowitz in leading the charge to purge conservatives and Trump supporters from the military.

The greatest threat to American security is not China, Russia, or Iran. It is the Critical Race Theory (CRT) transformation of our military. CRT is also our greatest threat to freedom.

According to U.S. Space Force Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, during the first month he was assigned as commander of the 11th Space Warning Squadron at a Colorado Air Force and Space base in July 2020, he was asked by base leadership to watch two videos in preparation for training and discussion on race and inclusion. This was in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd and rioting, looting, and burning in Minneapolis. Trained facilitators would mediate discussion sessions for base personnel.

Historic Photographs Of "White" Slaves

In 1863 and 1864, eight former slaves toured the northern states to raise money for impoverished African-American schools in New Orleans; four children with mixed-race ancestry and pale complexions were deliberately included to evoke sympathy from white northerners. Photographs of Charles Taylor, Rebecca Huger, Rosina Downs, and Augusta Broujey were mass-produced and sold as part of the campaign.
