ITS A NEW YEAR CHARLIE BROWN
It would seem that the collapse of the Statues of General Forrest and President Davis have only served to give BLM and their “white-guilt” allies a taste for blood.
Not satisfied with the removal of the City’s Confederate statuary, they are now seeking the removal of the statue of E.H. Crump.
So who was E. H. Crump? According to Wikipedia:
Edward Hull “Boss” Crump (October 2, 1874 – October 16, 1954) was an American politician from Memphis, Tennessee. Representing the Democratic Party, he was the dominant force in the city’s politics for most of the first half of the 20th century, during which the city had a commission form of government. He also dominated Tennessee state politics for most of the time from the 1920s to the 1940s. He was elected and served as mayor of Memphis from 1910 through 1915, and again briefly in 1940. However, he effectively appointed every mayor elected from 1915 to 1954.
The patina-stained bronze statue was erected in 1957, at the main Poplar entrance to Overton Park, just three years after his death.
Crump was long viewed by his supporters as a sort of benign oligarch. But according to those who make their living propagating the race-war, he held hard-line “racist” views. History tells us that it was Crump who gave people of color the ability to exercise their right to vote in Memphis. His new critics claim that was only the case, “as long as they voted his way.”
Whether or not the crump statue will come down is yet to be seen. Crump was white. So his chances of being bull-dozed are pretty good!
And then the Memphis mob will grow even hungrier. The bloodlust is never satisfied. Will this white Southern Christian gentleman’s statue be next?
Not if a group calling itself ‘Confederate 901’ has any say. The group is promoting a demonstration on Jan. 6 that seems to be gaining some traction on social media.
The Memphis Police have told WREG that they’ll be ready. [insert ooohhhh here]
As a taller fence goes up around the spot where the former statue Nathan Bedford Forrest once stood, ‘Confederate 901’ has received more than 2,700 ‘likes’ in their calling for people from across the nation to meet in Confederate support.
The about section of the page says, “Confederate 901′ is a group of patriots who stand up for the constitution and freedom. If those are breached we will come to you, by the millions.”
It’s unclear who made the page.
Lee Millar, spokesperson with the Sons of Confederate Veterans, has been outspoken against the removal of statues and sale of the parks in the medical district and downtown to private group Memphis Greenspace. He says he’s received plenty of questions about the event but told me his group has nothing to do with it and doesn’t plan to attend if it happens. “I don’t know if the rally will accomplish any more than letting the city and the city council know they were wrong. It will certainly draw support and let them see that it’s widespread opposition to their illegal actions, but the Sons of Confederate Veterans won’t participate,” Millar said.
On the other hand, the City and the City Council still insist that everything in the sale was done legally.
As of Wednesday night, a statement sent from the page’s messenger account said:
“Confederate 901 along with The Highwaymen, The Freedom Crew, The Carolina Defenders, Numerous Militias and lll% Groups with Patriots from across the nation are showing up in Memphis TN to show the world our History and Heritage is being destroyed in underhanded backroom deals. We come in peace! We are not a racist organization! We are not affiliated with any racist group! No longer will we remain silent while history is destroyed! We called to find information about a permit and were told “No Point you will be refused you are just being a nuisance” so we are coming to show we are not to be dismissed while our monuments, our Flags, and worst of all our American Soldiers & Their families Graves are being desecrated! Awareness must raised as to what’s going on in this Country! We have an office that is located in Shelby county that’s running 24 hours a day 7 days a week with a staff of 8 to monitor every angle of this and the founder of our group is Jason Davidson we have close to 10,334 riders coming in from Cali to New York even a few Canada patriots as well as 2 from Australia.”
We asked the city of Memphis about the claim regarding the permits office.
Ursula Madden, with the City of Memphis told us, “I can’t imagine that would be the response that would be given to any person calling our permits office. We would certainly tell them what our ordinance says, and request that they comply with our laws.”
CNN – AP – LAMESTREAM MEDIA ATTACK BLACKS
Black Confederates that is.
At a time when in most places, politicians are battling to take down Confederate statues and memorials, a pair of State Legislators in South Carolina want to put one up. And it wouldn’t be just another Civil War monument. It would be a monument to honor the sacrifices of black Confederate troops from South Carolina.
The problem is that the “historians” hired by the State are claiming that there weren’t any black Confederate soldiers in South Carolina. Yes, they know better!
All this week, CNN, the Associated Press, and as a result, most of the LameStream media are running with this repeating it ad-naseum. Probably because it is a low news cycle this week, New Year’s week usually is. So the media has attached to this and have been attacking South Carolina state Reps. Bill Chumley and Mike Burns, literally, all week long.
We reported in the fall how Reps Chumley and Burns filed a pair of bills late last year for the 2018 legislative session that would form a commission to create a monument to South Carolina’s black Confederate troops.
“This monument can help educate current and future generations of a little-known — but important — part of South Carolina history,” Burns said back in October. “These African-Americans, like many of their Caucasian contemporaries, stepped up to defend their home state during a tumultuous time in our country’s history. Their service has largely been overlooked or forgotten,” he went on to say.
But Walter Edgar, the left’s “premier historian” on all things South Carolina is claiming that he has no evidence there were ever any black soldiers that fought in the Confederate Army. “In all my years of research, I can say I have seen no documentation of black South Carolina soldiers fighting for the Confederacy,” Edgar told The State newspaper in Columbia, South Carolina. “In fact, when secession came, the state turned down free (blacks) who wanted to volunteer.”
When confronted with hard evidence that there were indeed blacks in the Confederate Army, Edgar and CNN doubled-down, reporting that they were either slaves or free blacks forced to work without pay as cooks or servants.
TWO BILLS IN MISSOURI HOPPER
Two measures introduced for the new State legislative session approach the Confederate monuments debate from different sides.
As such monuments have been toppled across the country recently, one bill would force their relocation to, essentially, a museum. Another would make it harder to remove them from their public perches.
“Our country is polarized due to systemic racism,” said Sen. Jamilah Nasheed, D-St. Louis, whose Senate Bill 584 would require the moving of Missouri’s Confederate statues and plaques to a state park in Higginsville. “It’s time for those Confederate flags and monuments to go where they belong – in a museum.”
The bill also would ban the sale or display of Confederate flags on state property. In the Capitol’s gift shop Wednesday, a post card bearing the flag of Pindall’s 9th Battalion Missouri Sharpshooters, a Confederate unit, could be purchased for 50 cents.
By contrast, Rep. Warren Love, R-Osceola, has filed House Bill 1427, which would create a review process to remove or rename any war statue. The Missouri Advisory Council on Historic Preservation, which votes on historical places, would hold a public hearing on any potential changes.
The bill applies to all conflicts America has been in, from the WBTS to the war in Iraq. Love said he introduced the Bill because he was concerned about people taking down other people’s “objects of remembrance.”
“I would not be in favor of going around the state and rounding up monuments placed by people who were honored because of serving their state,” he said. “I’m not trying to carve anything that can’t be done. I’m just trying to give a process.”
Missouri has 20 confederate monuments, including names of courthouses and an elementary school in Columbia. All of them were targeted for removal efforts according to a 2016 report from the Southern Poverty Law Center. The Love Bill was proposed in response to the summer-time removal of the Confederate monument in Forest Park.
Also this past summer, someone vandalized the monument in Springfield. In a Facebook comment, Love said the vandals should be “hung from a tall tree with a long rope.” We reported last week that he was scheduled to face an ethics committee hearing yesterday to defend the comment.
So Rep. Love has also included wording in the Bill, that, if passed as is, defacing a monument about an American conflict would be a class E felony, which has a punishment of not more than four years in prison.
On the wall of his office, Love has a picture of his great-great-grandfather, who fought for the Confederacy, and his great-great-uncle, who fought for the Union. “My great-great-grandfather did not serve to keep slaves,” he said. “Nor did my great-great grandfather who served in the Union serve in that war to free the slaves. He served because his state called him. … They both did what they thought was right.”
Asked whether the monuments should be destroyed, Nasheed said she would like to go farther than moving Confederate monuments to a museum.
“They should be destroyed,” she said. “We won, you know?” “But that would be difficult legislation to pass,” she said.
“You have other individuals, meaning other elected officials, that feel it’s a part of their history,” she said, declining to specify. “Let’s put that history behind us,” she said. “The North won, so why are we highlighting Confederacy when you know and I know it was built on death and destruction of a race of people? It was built on prejudice. It was built on racism and bigotry.”
While Democrats have limited political capital, with Republicans controlling the governorship, the House and the Senate, Nasheed said she is confident that her bill will pass.
Senate leaders said they’d probably focus more on other subjects. “I haven’t read it,” Sen. Ron Richard, R-Joplin, the president pro tem of the Senate, said of Nasheed’s bill. “I haven’t even thought about that. I’m more concentrated right now on some unfinished business from last year.”
1st DAUGHTER ATTACKED FOR CONFEDERATE FLAG
Ivanka Trump got blasted on social media after Huffington Post writer Ashley Feinberg spotted a Confederate Flag in one of her Florida vacation photos.
Ivanka tweeted a photo of her husband, Jared Kushner, holding their son Theodore on a boat. A Confederate Flag can be seen in the background on the boat of a random vacationer, along with an American Flag.
Huffington Post writer Feinberg pointed the flag out on Twitter. Surely this is Pulitzer prize-worthy journalism.
Social media then erupted with charges that Ivanka is a racist because a random Floridian flew a Confederate Flag on their boat.
SO WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE “EMBARRASSED”?
Sociologist James W. Loewen is the author of many books including, Lies My Teacher Told Me. He was interviewed by the History News Network’s Rick Shenkman on January 4, 2018 at the annual meeting of the American Historical Association.
Sid from Maryland submits the following original article:
The New Nullification
On July 1st, 2015, 32 year old Kathryn Steinle was shot and killed walking on Pier 14 in the Embarcadero district of San Francisco. Her killer was a convicted criminal and a five-time deported illegal alien from Mexico, Jose Zarate. Zarate first claimed that he had fired at a sea lion but later changed his story and said that the gun had gone off when he picked it up after finding it wrapped in a cloth beneath a bench on which he was sitting at the time. The shot ricocheted off a piece of concrete and struck Steinle in the back; she died two hours later of her injuries.
The case was a sensation containing as it did all the necessary factors: a criminal and many times deported “illegal alien,” a young and innocent victim and, of great interest in these days of demands for gun control, a mysterious hand gun. Further, this “gun crime” was committed in a state and city with very strict-some say unconstitutionally so-gun laws. Zarate was tried for second degree murder, considered an “overreach” by the San Francisco prosecutor given the ricochet nature of the wound! He was found not guilty. Since the trial, the Federal Government has sought custody of Zarate to prosecute him on any number of secondary crimes, but as a “sanctuary State and city,” both California and San Francisco are decidedly unwilling to cooperate with the Department of Justice. It is said, however, that prosecution for violations of the City’s and State’s gun laws is in the works. But whether or not Zarate ever pays for his crimes, and they are many, nothing will restore life to Kathryn Steinle.
As a final “icing” on this wretched cake, California and the City by the Bay have proven more hostile to President Donald Trump’s condemnation of the crime and the criminal than they ever were against Zarate especially given his numerous convictions and insistence on returning to the United States to commit further mayhem. Even Steinle’s father, with whom she was walking on the fatal day, spoke out against those who wanted justice for the death of his daughter. When the chips are down, for liberals ideology is more important than sanity.
What the eventual outcome of the matter will be is unknown. As long as large cities and even a very large state are determined that the laws of the rest of the country do not apply to them, we may consider Kate Steinle the first of many casualties resulting from the insanity that grips this country. While in Chicago, legal citizens-doubtless with illegal guns-kill more people a year than are killed in many small wars, our broken immigration system simply opens the floodgates for more killings while “law enforcement” and local and state governments protect and serve not their citizens, but the criminals involved for the simple reason that they represent first, liberal ideology and second, the next wave of liberal Democrat voters.
Still, it is interesting to note the gun laws in California in general and San Francisco in particular. After all, we know any time a gun is used in a crime, liberals en masse begin their siren call for “gun control.” All intelligent and rational arguments regarding the facts that such laws only affect lawful citizens and that criminals are seldom daunted by the law mean nothing to our liberal friends. However, in the case of Zarate, it would seem that not only did the law mean nothing to this repeat offender, but it meant nothing to California or San Francisco! How else can anyone explain why this “gun crime,” officially so terrible in the eyes of the minions of California government seemed of little concern. According to reports, the gun laws of California are among the most restrictive in the nation and include a five year Firearm Safety Certificate requiring a $25 fee and the applicant having to pass a written test proctored by a Certified Instructor from the Department of Justice. And the list of regulations only gets worse. The City of San Francisco only adds to California’s cumbersome gun regulations. Consider all of this legal falderal in light of the unattended, unlicensed and fully loaded gun that Zarate claims he found under a bench! Not only does he take possession of that gun-illegally!-but proceeds to discharge it in public whether it be to shoot a sea lion or a woman. You would think that the prosecution would have added these very serious gun charges when he was tried for the murder of Steinle, but apparently not since they are supposedly being considered at some later date-if at all.
There can be only one reason why the exceptionally grievous nature of Zarate’s crimes from his drug convictions and his numerous illegal entries coupled with the death-however unintentional-of Kathryn Steinle are viewed seemingly very differently than would have been the case had they been committed by an American citizen; that is, that Zarate is not a citizen of the United States, but a protected, cossetted and welcomed illegal (non-white) alien. Instead of his crimes making the killing of Kate Steinle of greater consequence, his status has virtually nullified her death at least in California. Jefferson once wrote, “The care of human life and happiness and not their destruction is the first and only legitimate object of good government.” Jefferson was, of course, speaking of the citizens of that government. It would seem that the State of California and the City of San Francisco have turned that truism on its head, bestowing care and happiness not on one of their citizens, but on a man who has proven unworthy of that protection. Sadly, there seems no end in sight of this particular governmental perversion.
Happy New Year – from Google
by Al Benson, Jr.
Al Benson, Jr., is the editor and publisher of the Copperhead Chronicle, a quarterly newspaper that presents history from a pro-Southern and Christian perspective.
I just received, on 12/27, a New Year’s gift from Google. They decided not to update my InfoWars connection. All the other pages or email lists that I have listed seem to be getting updated daily except the InfoWars one.
My first thought was “how petty!” But then I remembered that Google is one of those sources that had decided that the American public is better off if they only get one side of the story-the Deep State side. They don’t need to be aware of any of the rest of it-all that involves way too much thinking and decision making and our public school “educated” kids are just not up for that anymore, and unfortunately, neither are most of their parents (or grandparents).
I had read somewhere just recently that Google, Facebook, and one other Establishment outfit whose name escapes me at the moment, had all decided that they were going to start censoring what their readers got. Oh they don’t call it “censoring.” They have some fancy title for it that their executives were taught in school when the teacher had nothing better to do. But no matter what fancy handle you hang on it, it all amounts to trying to keep as much information from their readership as possible in areas that make them queasy.
I don’t think this new omission is particularly aimed at me but it probably a policy aimed at anyone that has InfoWars listed as part of their daily reading. This forces me to go to another server to read the daily InfoWars updates, a minor inconvenience, but one I am willing to undertake, as InfoWars gives me information I seldom get from other sources and usually gives it to me ahead of what other sources do end up with it. So I will switch to the other server and keep up with the daily InfoWars commentary, and while I am there I will also check out updates for all the other pages I check daily, and there are a fair number of them.
Having two blog spots and publishing two newsletters puts me in the position of needing to keep up with current events as well as the historical material I write about. Just checking my email is good for about three hours a day, especially since the major uptick in anti-Confederate hysteria emerged a couple years ago.
So, if Google has decided that I (and many others) don’t need to be kept aware of what InfoWars publishes on a daily basis then all they do is force us onto other venues that are still willing to provide what we need.
The public today is not like the public in Nixon’s day, when all you had to get info on Watergate were the usual suspects-the three main media outlets-all controlled by the same people with the same statist worldview. Today you have alt.right media and there is enough of that so the Establishment will never be able to shove Pandora back into the box again like they used to.
Today, the information is out there (just like “the truth is out there”) for those willing to look for it and there are sites like InfoWars, The Drudge Report, World Net Daily and a whole host of others putting out documentation that makes the Deep State absolutely cringe-and it’s about time!
So Google and Facebook and other Deep State outfits can withhold all they want, but eventually it’s going to get out there no matter what they do and they might as well get used to that.
ROY MOORE – THE AFTERMATH
by Dr. Chuck Baldwin
Dr. Chuck Baldwin is a radio broadcaster, syndicated columnist, and pastor dedicated to preserving the historic principles upon which America was founded.
What happened to Judge Roy Moore in Alabama is the worst of all precursors. It was a mega failure. It was a failure of the national Republican Party; it was a failure of Christian leadership; it was a failure of Christian thinking; it was a failure of honest journalism; it was a failure of election integrity; and it was a failure of American principle.
Make no mistake about it: the Democrats did not defeat Judge Roy Moore; the Republicans in Washington, D.C. (including President Trump and Vice President Pence) defeated Judge Roy Moore.
After Moore’s defeat, Donald Trump said that he knew Judge Moore would lose the general election, which is why he endorsed establishment toady Luther Strange in the Republican primary. OF COURSE Trump knew that Roy Moore would lose: he knew it because he knew that he (Trump) would do virtually nothing to help him win and that the National Republican Party would not only not help him win but would actively work to ensure his defeat-which is exactly what he did and what it did.
Beyond that, Christian leaders nationwide and in Alabama refused to come to Judge Moore’s defense after the unsubstantiated and scurrilous accusations were made against him. Tens of thousands of evangelical Christians in Alabama (encouraged by their pastors) stayed home from the polls and didn’t vote. Even after 40 years of Roy Moore’s sterling character and unmatched leadership, a host of pastors and Christians abandoned him-abandoned him on baseless accusation. Shame on those pastors! Shame on those Christians!
After Judge Moore’s election defeat, one well-meaning Christian writer said that Judge Moore’s defeat was a victory for “Christian values.” What? If that’s the case, we can only deduce that when the patriarch Joseph was thrown into prison after being lied about by Potiphar’s wife, it was a victory for “Christian values.” Egad! What has happened to Christian thinking?
This was not a victory for Christian values; it was a victory for the powers of darkness. The dark forces within government and the media learned that they can destroy ANYONE by repeated false accusation. If Roy Moore can be defeated by slander and an evil report in Alabama, NO ONE is safe from these tactics.
The only hope for the restoration of liberty in America lies in the following:
1. Realization of the liberty principles contained in our Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, the U.S. Constitution, and Natural Law.
2. Return to preaching as once exhibited in the pulpits of Colonial America. Instead of trying to entertain and put diapers on Christian crybabies-as seems to be the focus in most churches today-pastors should focus on putting armor on Christian soldiers.
3. Repudiation of Scofield dispensationalism. Believe it or not, Christian support for a gross misinterpretation of the Biblical teaching of Israel are the underlying causes of the massive deterioration of America’s Christian culture as well as the catalysts for globalism, the Warfare State, and the rise of political neoconism.
If God is pleased to let me live and work for another year, you can be assured that I will be addressing these solutions at length.
Eating Goober Peas for Good Luck
by Ed Neilson
Ed Neilson is an American politician and member of the Democratic Party. The former political director for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Worker, he now represents the 174th District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
The story of how black-eyed peas came to be a symbol of good luck in the South has not been told, for the most part, except in Confederate Southern homes. Sometimes when it is told people call it a myth, or an isolated story blown out of proportion. But it’s the truth, and it’s time for everyone to know it.
The following are facts that Confederate, multi-generational Southern-Americans know because they heard it in grandmother’s kitchens, who heard it in their grandmother’s kitchens, who heard it from their grandmothers. It is written in family Bibles, and diaries, letters and newspaper articles from the past. It’s a story of a scorched-earth policy of hell called “war” perpetrated on civilians left at home while their fighting men were defending against illegal invasion. War heaped on defenseless women, innocent children and unarmed old men. This has never been admitted to in 152 years, much less seen as a war crime, but it’s the truth.
The truth is, while our men were fighting away from home women, children and old men were left, and that means red, yellow, black, white and brown alike. An empire that never was supposed to be, led by men who hated the Constitution and self-governance, were grinding into powder whatever, and whomever got in its way and that meant civilians. The lust for control is a corrupting thing, and the heart of mankind is easily corrupted. The truth is hidden among the dusty pages of time in newspaper articles, books, diaries and letters. It is hidden amidst smoke and mirrors called “slavery.” An unhealed wound remains in southern states today because of a simple lack of acknowledgement on deeds that would quickly be judged as “WAR CRIMES AGAINST SOUTHERN CIVILIANS” to quote Mr. Brian Cisco in his much-acclaimed work published in 2013.
The story of black eyed peas being considered good luck relates directly back to Sherman’s unleashing hell known as the “march to the sea” in 1864. It was called The Savannah Campaign and was lead by a demon-possessed man that made General in the US army. The campaign began on 11/15/64 when Sherman’s troops marched from the captured city of Atlanta, Georgia and ended at the port of Savannah on 12/22/1864. But the same thing was going on all across the South. They happened to have practiced beforehand in Mississippi.
When the smoke cleared, the southerners who had survived the onslaught came out of hiding. They found that the invading aggressors in an army, that called itself the US Army, was filled with foreigners forced into fighting and told to “plunder the South.” These mostly foreigners had looted and stolen everything of value, destroyed what they could not carry away, and everything edible, including livestock and crops in stores and in the field, stolen or destroyed. They even killed animals and shoved their bloated, rotting bodies into wells to poison them. While in hiding few had enough to eat, but now starvation, destruction, disease, lack and want were upon women, children and old men who were home alone.
There was no government aid, no food stamps, no Red Cross, no Samaritan’s Purse and the churches and members were all in the same shape. The animals that might have been hunted, of course, had abandoned their homes when the shelling began. It was, quite literally, genocide. Our people were starving.
But God….there was one thing left. One small thing left.
You see, the foreigners in the Union army and American Northerners at the time were taking grain for their horses, livestock and other crops to feed themselves and they just couldn’t take everything. So they left the black eyed peas in great quantities thinking it only livestock fodder, and assuming it would be of no use to the survivors because all the stock that it could feed had either been taken, eaten, or left to rot on the lawns of civilians. And civilians were starving. That’s the God’s honest truth.
Southern people praised God for the ignorance of the invaders and had something to feed their starving children and themselves. In the face of massive, wide-spread starvation and ruin, God gave them the black-eyed pea to live on. And they were grateful. That is a foreign concept in our society, but very well known in theirs.
Beginning on New Year’s Day in 1866, the Confederate Southern-American custom of eating black eyed peas flamed across the devastated Southland. We eat black eyed peas, even if we don’t like them we’ll eat one. We do so to thank God for not allowing Sherman and the illegal invaders to wipe us out, and we do so to remember our starving families. We will NEVER forget. Never.
Now, go eat your black-eyed peas with a skillet of cornbread and greens, or cabbage for prosperity in the new year. And remember to teach your children.
Happy New Year!
