Our Solemn Task as Southerners
For every Southern boy fourteen years old, not once but whenever he wants it, there is the instant when it’s still not yet two o’clock on that July afternoon in 1863, the brigades are in position behind the rail fence, the guns are laid and ready in the woods and the furled flags are already loosened to break out and Pickett himself with his long oiled ringlets and his hat in one hand probably and his sword in the other looking up the hill waiting for Longstreet to give the word and it’s all in the balance, it hasn’t happened yet, it hasn’t even begun yet, it not only hasn’t begun yet but there is still time for it not to begin against that position and those circumstances which made more men than Garnett and Kemper and Armistead and Wilcox look grave – yet it’s going to begin, we all know that, we have come too far with too much at stake and that moment doesn’t need even a fourteen-year-old boy to think This time. Maybe this time with all this much to lose than all this much to gain: Pennsylvania, Maryland, the world, the golden dome of Washington itself to crown with desperate and unbelievable victory the desperate gamble….[from Intruder in the Dust, 1948]
[Back in late 2018 Scuppernong Press published a volume of my essays on the South and Southern history titled The Land We Love: The South and Its Heritage (available via Amazon and most other booksellers). I have been gratified by the reception given to this volume and by the many positive reviews. Below I share my Introduction to the book which I believe can stand on its own as a statement of my principles and of my commitment to my history, my region, and, as the poet Robert Lee Frost once said, “To the truths we keep coming back to.”]
Over the past several years I have been writing essays for several publications and media outlets regarding Southern and Confederate history and heritage, and, in particular, about the growing assault on the symbols of that history and heritage. None of what I wrote—nothing I put into print—should have seemed that unusual or radical. My thoughts and observations could have been put down on paper fifty years ago—even thirty years ago—and I don’t think they would have caused much of a stir or raised an eyebrow for most readers. Of course, much has changed in fifty years, and what was admired, revered, and considered normal then, is, in large part, considered controversial, even hateful, or subject to censorship and banning, now.

Radical Biden nominee keeping thesis on Karl Marx concealed Sen. Toomey: 'Shocking' that pick for Comptroller of the Currency not 'accountable'
Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), is refusing to hand over to the Senate Banking Committee her university thesis on Marxism written during her time in the Soviet Union.
Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, ranking member of the committee, had sent a letter to Omarova on Oct. 6 asking the Cornell Law School professor to hand over her Moscow State University thesis, titled “Karl Marx’s Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution in The Capital,” by Oct. 13, citing the committee’s need to “fully assess the fitness of individuals to serve in Senate-confirmed executive and independent agency positions.”

Senator Manchin Demands an Income Cap For Biden’s Child Tax Credit Program
Manchin also wants the program only to be made available to families with an income of $60,000 or less, a huge reduction on the current earnings cap. Currently, families earning up to $150,000 are eligible for up to $3,600 for each of their children.
Moderate Democrat Senator Joe Manchin will only support Joe Biden’s flagship child tax credits policy if the existing program is made markedly less generous, sources say.
The West Virginia senator says that if the program is to continue into 2022, it must have a firm work requirement to try and deter recipients from using it as their sole means of income.

Obama’s Defense Secretary: Biden Has ‘Gotten A Lot Wrong,’ ‘Trump Got It Right’ On China
Video via Hal
13 minute interview. As non-partisan as one could hope for from NBC.
Gates has had a multi-faceted career and vast experience which includes Secretary of Defense under Presidents of both parties. I believe that his commentary on Afghanistan is spot-on. He doesn't pull any punches and explains and justifies both his praise and criticism. I feel that he supports my opinion that, while it is so very important that the Republicans regain control of both houses and the White House, it should be without Trump's re-election despite his many positive accomplishments. Even though our divided country is not something of his making, I don't believe that he is capable of mending it primarily because anti-Trumpers will never allow it.
Robert Gates, former President Barack Obama’s secretary of defense, slammed President Joe Biden during an interview that aired on Sunday, and praised former President Donald Trump when it came to foreign policy.
Gates made the remarks during an interview on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” with co-host Anderson Cooper, saying Biden has “gotten a lot wrong.”

‘Let’s Go Brandon’ Song Soars To No. 1 Spot On iTunes Hip Hop Chart
A song based on the anti-Biden chant “Let’s Go Brandon!” has soared up the charts and now sits at No. 1 on the iTunes hip-hop chart.
Rapper Loza Alexander sings the tune, aptly titled “Let’s Go Brandon.” “In the song’s choruses, a voice repeatedly chants the iconic anti-Biden mantra and is immediately followed by a sample of a crowd chanting the original line, the more rough-and-ready ‘F*ck Joe Biden,'” writes The Post-Millennial.
