WILL YOU SIGN MY BIBLE?
Clemson students are calling on the university’s leaders to take “immediate action” to rename Calhoun Honors College and Tillman Hall, claiming that each bear identity associated with historical figures who espoused “white supremacist” views.
The Undergraduate Student Government passed two resolutions introduced by its Inclusion and Equity Committee this week.
One calls for the university’s executive leadership team, made up of the president and vice presidents, to formally respond to a student petition calling for the renaming of Calhoun Honors College to Clemson Honors College.
The second resolution expressed the student senate’s “support for the immediate action of the University’s administrative leadership and Board of Trustees in taking all possible and necessary steps to rename Tillman Hall.”
Past efforts to rename Tillman Hall have failed, university leaders have said, because of the state’s Heritage Act, which requires a two-thirds vote of the General Assembly to alter, remove or rename historical monuments. So the student resolution calls on trustees and university administrators to petition the General Assembly to amend the law.
Clemson’s general counsel office is looking at whether or not renaming the honors college, which does not have a physical building bearing the Calhoun name, would violate the act, according to associate vice president of strategic communications Joe Galbraith.
More than 100 faculty members have signed a letter, published in The Tiger student newspaper, voicing support for the student petition and calling on the university to “stop commemorating Calhoun’s legacy of white supremacy in the name of this important undergraduate institution.” There are more than 1,500 total faculty members at Clemson.
NEW HAMPSHIRE POLICE ASK FOR HELP
…in their search for the person who put a burned Confederate Flag in a mailbox in Goffstown back in early December. Officers haven’t been able to generate any leads so they published the incident in a statement Thursday requesting public assistance. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Scott Rousseau at 603-497-4858.
HAS ANOTHER LAWSUIT CONCLUDED?
The decision to remove the Confederate monument that stands in front of the Caddo Parish Courthouse is now in the hands of the Caddo Commission following a ruling by the United States 5th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday when the 5th Circuit Court dismissed all claims of the United Daughters of Confederacy with prejudice. The ruling was issued Wednesday afternoon by a three judge panel of the US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
“The parish is pleased that we have confirmation that we have the right to decide whether the Confederate monument can remain on the Courthouse grounds,” said Donna Frazier, parish attorney.
Our readers in the Shreveport area are encouraged to call their Parish leaders and encourage them to maintain and not remove the Confederate monument.
MARXIST “BLACK”-MAILING GEORGIA COMMISSIONERS
Last week Tuesday, anti-statue activist Gene Wills told commissioners at a meeting in Covington, Georgia with an election looming in less than two years, there are three commission district seats as well as the chairman’s post up in 2020.
He threatened that his group, East Metro for Social Justice, plans to start phone and letter writing campaigns calling out commissioners for supporting the Confederate monuments.
“The lines have been drawn in the sand,” he said. “Those who vote ‘No’ on the statue will be forever tied to it – to slavery, Jim Crow, neo-Nazi, the Klan.
“We’re going to be very active in writing to the editor, sending letters to the editor from locally, to the city and we’re going to put names with the statue, with hate,” he said. “And we’re going to launch a phone call campaign. Ones who supposedly have friends who’re voting no, we’re going to call your district and let them know how you really feel.”
TENNESSEE STATUE VANDALIZED
The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office continues its investigation into the vandalism of the Confederate monument in Murfreesboro.
Surveillance video from the County Courthouse showed the suspect driving onto the square around 10:30 pm Tuesday. The vandal appears to spray paint the monument for about two minutes, and then left the scene.
City workers spent Wednesday morning powerwashing the paint.
The statue, dedicated in 1901, commemorates the Confederate soldiers who fell in the Battle of Murfreesboro in 1862.
If you have any information, you’re urged to call 615-904-3055.
ANOTHER NORTH CAROLINA STATUE COMES DOWN
On Tuesday construction crews in Winston-Salem spent more than an hour attaching a harness and a cage-like metal frame to protect the statue of an anonymous soldier, then hoisted it from atop its pedestal with a large crane. Winston-Salem Mayor Allen Joines said the statue will be put in storage.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, whose representative was on hand at the removal, told reporters that 115 Confederate statues have been taken down across the U.S. and that they can now scratch one more off their list.
VIRGINIA STUDENT OPPOSES SUPERINTENDENT
As we reported, when the Albemarle County School Board would not ban the Confederate Flag, the superintendent declared that he would override them and declare a ban of his own. That ban went into effect Tuesday and immediately a student was sent home as liberal teachers started their day eagerly looking to enforce it.
A spokesperson for the school says that an unidentified high school student was asked to remove his hat with the Confederate Flag. He refused and school leaders called his parents. The student’s father said he would not tell his son to take the hat off, and signed his son out for the day.
Albemarle County Superintendent Matt Haas said. “When he comes back without the hat on, or any other attire that represents white supremacy, Nazi-ism or the Confederacy, then he can come back to school.”
The Rutherford Institute will be representing the student. “It’s a subjective decision made by government official, and at that point it can be dangerous because, again, the First Amendment allows us the right to do peaceful assemble, peaceful expression, and live our lives under a democratic society,” said John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute. “They should be individualized cases. If someone is disrupting the education environment of the school, yes that can be dealt with, but just banning all images… what we have here is we don’t have an objective standard.”
MORRIS SLEEZE WAS FIRED
The Southern Poverty Law Center fired Morris Dees, the nonprofit civil rights organization’s co-founder and former chief litigator.
SPLC President Richard Cohen said in a statement Dees’ dismissal over his misconduct was effective on Wednesday, March 13. When pressed for details on what led to the termination, the organization declined to elaborate.
Dees, 82, who co-founded the Montgomery-based organization in 1971 said “It was not my decision, what they did,” in a phone interview on Thursday. “I wish the center the absolute best. Whatever reasons they had of theirs, I don’t know.”
Dees also claims that he hadn’t tried a case in at least a decade and hadn’t recently been involved in the day-to-day operations of the SPLC.
NON-HERITAGE NEWS AFFECTING THE SOUTHLAND:
According to a February poll conducted by the Marist Institute and Knights of Columbus, there has been a 17% increase in those who identify as pro-life, regardless of age or party affiliation, among 1,008 Americans surveyed. De- mocrats who identify as pro-life increased by 14% while those identifying as pro-choice dropped from 75% to 61%. A 19-point jump was seen in those under the age of 45 who identify as pro-life, up from 28% to 47%. Eighty percent responded that abortion should be limited to the first trimester, and polls showed over- whelming opposition to late term abortions.
IT IS AN INVASION
Unusually high illegal immigration in January and February at the U.S.-Mexico border has put fiscal year 2019 on pace to experience the highest levels of unauthorized migration in a decade.
Roughly 58,000 migrants were detained at the U.S. southern border in January. Preliminary figures show the rate is only climbing, with over 70,000 recorded migrant apprehensions in February. In fact, one day in February made history as being the largest number of “family unit apprehensions” ever recorded on a single day. The Department of Homeland Security is expecting even larger numbers for March and April, putting 2019 in position to witness record levels of illegal immigration.
“The numbers are staggering, and we’re incredibly worried that we will see another huge increase in March,” a Homeland Security Official said to The Washington Post. …”

THE ILLUMINATI AND EDUCATION
by Al Benson, Jr.
Al Benson, Jr., is the Editor of the Copperhead Chronicle. In addition to writing for Southern Patriot and other publications, he is a member of the Confederate Society of America and the League of the South.
Many who read this will be aware of the Illuminati and of who they were (and are) and what their designs for a One World Government were (and are). They don’t call them the Illuminati anymore. Nowadays they would probably be called something like “The New World Order” or possibly “The Deep State” or some kind of shadow government. But no matter what you call them the objectives of those who embrace their worldview have not changed.
There has been quite a bit written about them over the years (unfortunately not enough) and not on a consistent basis. They don’t exactly seek open publicity.
A University of Edinburgh professor, John Robison, wrote a book about them back in 1798 called Proofs of a Conspiracy. I believe it may still be available today from the John Birch Society as a reprint. See if you can locate it.’
Dennis L. Cuddy, Ph.D. wrote an excellent series of articles about them on www.newswithviews.com back in 2010. You may be able to find those on the internet. I did.
The purpose of the Illuminati, founded on May 1, 1776, (now you know why the communists celebrate May Day every year) was to “…root out all religion and ordinary morality, abolish national distinctions, demean patriotism, and ‘rule the world’.” Ask yourself, in light of what you see going on around you today-does any of this look familiar to you? If not, you haven’t been paying attention.
The founder of the Illuminati, Adam Weishaupt, felt he had a plan that could not fail. Obviously he didn’t take God into account since he was busy trying to eliminate any belief in Him. Mr. Cuddy, in his series of articles, noted: “A key component of his plan included directing academic and religious education. If the Illuminati ‘was to govern the world,’ as they believed, they had to ‘acquire the direction of education-of church management-of the professorial chair, and the pulpit’ (Robison, page 109). From Illuminati ‘secret correspondence’ Robison found their ‘Instruction B for the whole degree of Regent’ that included winning ‘the common people in every corner. This will be done chiefly by means of the schools,…”
And Cuddy also noted that: “Concerning religious education, Terry Melanson of the online Illuminati Conspiracy Archive said ‘Weishaupt and his control turned Jesus into a socialist revolutionary: representing Him as a secret society adept, who came to preach egalitarian virtue.” Does that sound familiar? I can recall, back in the 1970s there was a program of sorts out there that posited Jesus as a socialist revolutionary with an AK47 in one hand. Where do you suppose they got the idea for that from? Three guesses-first two don’t count!
Cuddy observed further that “Baron Adolph von Knigge…was Weishaupt’s second-in-command from 1780-1784. And according to Robison ‘his favorite scheme’ was to create ‘Citizens of the World.’ You might reflect at this point whether you have heard any leading political figures recently refer to themselves as ‘Citizens of the World.’ Some of this thinking was reflected in comments made by radical abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison back in the 1830s. That give you any ideas as to where the radical Northern abolitionists (as opposed to sensible Southern ones) got some of their ideas?
In part 3 of his Illuminati series Cuddy observed that: “In addition to historically prominent people such as Hegel being mentored by the Illuminati, there were several historically prominent people who were members of The Order. For example, according to Hermann Schuttler…the father of modern educational theory and practice, Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi founded a branch of the Illuminati in Zurich, Switzerland in 1783…And according to Schuttler, perhaps the most famous of the Illuminati was the novelist and playwright Johann Goethe…”
So, the “father of modern educational theory” was involved with the Illuminati. You have to wonder how that has affected education, especially public education, in this country in our day and before.
WHAT REALY HAPPENED IN HANOI?
by Dr. Ron Paul
Ron Paul is a physician, author, 10-term Congressman, two-time Republican presidential candidate, and the presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party in the 1988 U.S. Presidential Election.
President Trump’s second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un last week was criticized by both parties in Washington long before Air Force One even touched down in Hanoi. Washington’s political class seemed terrified that the nearly 70 year state of “war” with North Korea might actually end. In the end the only positive thing they could say about the meeting was that Trump apparently walked away with nothing to show for it.
The location of the meeting – Hanoi, Vietnam – serves as a great example of what can be won in peace versus what is lost in war. After losing nearly 60,000 US service members in an unnecessary war that took a million Vietnamese lives, the US loss of the Vietnam war resulted not in a communist takeover of southeast Asia but something very different: the domino theory failed because communism was destined to fail. Now we are close trading partners with an increasingly pro-market Vietnam. The result of trade and exchange versus war is a better life for all.
Unfortunately for Washington, the real lesson of Vietnam has not been learned. That is why the Republicans, Democrats, and the entire mainstream media spoke as oneagainst President Trump’s decision to take a bold step andactually meet again, one-on-one, with one of our”enemies” to see if we can avoid nuclear conflict.
One leading Democrat, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), attacked Trump for meeting with Kim because speaking to the North Korean”gives him legitimacy.” Does it make any sense that weshould not even speak with our nuclear-armed adversariesbecause it gives them “legitimacy”? He’d rather have anuclear war as long as Kim remains “illegitimate”? This issadly the kind of thinking that prevails in Washington.
The media reported that Trump walked away from the meeting before the scheduled signing ceremony and closing press event. The talks broke down, it was reported, because Kim demanded an end to all sanctions before any reduction in NorthKorea’s nuclear arsenal. Washington sighed with relief and said all together, “better no deal than a bad deal.”
Meanwhile the North Koreans held a rare press conference clarifying that they only asked for partial sanctions relief in exchange for dismantling one of their main nuclear facilities. Further, press reports began to surface that National Security Advisor John Bolton threw additional demands on the table which led Kim to draw the meeting to an early close.
Who’s telling the truth? We likely won’t know. But given Bolton’s strong opposition to any kind of peace agreement with North Korea it’s hard to doubt that he had somethingto do with the blow-up of the summit. As the New YorkTimes reported over the weekend, while Trump’s advisorswere shocked when he decided to meet Kim face-to-facethe first time for negotiations, John Bolton wasn’t worried at all. As the Times writes, “Mr. Bolton told colleaguesnot to worry. The negotiations, he said, would collapse ontheir own.” And so they did.
Will Trump continue to allow his diplomatic efforts to beundermined by his own staff? Let’s hope the presidentwill ignore Washington, ignore the neocons, and continue to work for peace with North Korea.
Jews & Black Basket Players at Ole Miss
by H. K. Edgerton
H. K. Edgerton is an activist for Southern heritage and a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans. A former president of the NAACP, he is on the board of the Southern Legal Resource Center.
As I stood this morning on the overpass of Interstate 240, don in the uniform of the Southern soldier, with the Southern Cross in hand, I would find myself surrounded by several young people and their parents who had in hand a copy of the attached articlefrom The Daily Mississippian newspaper.
“Mr. Edgerton, we read in this article that the Jewish community of Oxford, Mississippi supported the black basketball players of the Ole Miss team, taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem in protest of your presence alongside the Neo Confederates who visited their campus to protest the removal of the Confederate monuments there. What say you to that ?”
I would tell them that each year on my birthday, which just happened to fall on Presidents Day (February 18), and is the same day that President Jefferson Davis gave his first Inaugural speech on the then Capitol of the Confederacy in Montgomery, Alabama.
I would have lunch with Ms. Judi Price who is a direct descendant of the Honorable Confederate General Stephen Dill Lee, her husband Homer, and their adopted daughter Cheryl . General Lee would write the “Charge” of the United Confederate Veterans to the their Sons.
I would leave that luncheon with the impression that the “Charge” should apply not only to the Sons of Confederate Veterans, but also to all the people of the Southern soil who have a direct responsibility to protect the good name of the Confederate Veterans.
The Confederate Veteran is an American Veteran due all the amenities of any other American Veteran, and his Colors are a Venerated symbol by a Congressional mandate. To take a knee at any time during the National Anthem is an abhorrence with no justification.
And to take a knee against those who came to defend the memorialization of the men and arguably women of the Honorable General Robert E. Lee, a Christ-like figure in the South is blasphemous. To support any man who would take a knee in protest of those carrying the Colors of the Honorable General Thomas Johnathan Jackson,, because they came to defend the memorialization of his men is blasphemy. And, in particular case, if you are a Southern black man, because it is a direct betrayal of his legacy to the African man of the South as the General wouldn’t turn his back on them.
To take a knee on those who came to defend the memorialization of the men of the Honorable General Wade Hampton of whom the blacks of South Carolina would say that the General wasn’t even born; God just set him out of Heaven. How could any black man of the Southern soil take a knee on the memorialization of the men of Honorable General Nathan Bedford Forest ? The General would say of the forty plus black men who rode with him… there are no better Confederates than they, and they stayed with me to the end . And that includes the saving of Memphis from the burning , rape, murder and plunder that 42 cities of the great State of Mississippi suffered under the hands of Ulysses S. Grant.
And for these 8 Jews who proclaim to speak for the Jews of Oxford (Ariel Baron, Ben Cooper, Richard Gershon, Nina Rifkind, Stuart Schafer, Jason Solinger, and J.T. Thomas), how could any Jew of the Southern soil support the taking of a knee of this basketball team in protest of those who came in support of the memorialization of the men of the Honorable Zebulon Baird Vance who wrote the Scattered Nations, and traveled the world speaking its contents in support of the Jewish people. To do so is no different than the betrayal of Judas of Iscariot to Jesus Christ.
I understand Mark Levin touting the actions of the black men of the Ole Miss basketball team …after all, he is a Yankee.
FROM THE EDITOR
Dr. Ed is a pastor, author, public speaker, radio personality, lobbyist, re-enactor, and the Director of Dixie Heritage.
When President Trump signed Bibles in Alabama as he visited the area devastated by tornadoes, he was crucified by the Yankee media and by Southern Baptist leadership for doing so.
Of course the President did not exclusively sign Bibles. He only signed a few of them, among other items, including hats, notebooks, shirts, etc. presented to him, while visiting the tornado-devastated region on March 8.
But specifically to the point of his signing Bibles, not only was the President giving comfort to survivors by doing so, he was, perhaps even unknowingly, participating in a time-honored Southern tradition.
In the South, signatures in a person’s Bible “bring back great memories of relationships and friendships and moments in our life,” said Rusty Sowell, pastor of Providence Baptist Church in Opelika, Alabama – a tornado survivor whose Bible President Trump signed.
The President and First Lady were visiting in the aftermath of an EF-4 tornado that had just killed 23 people. Providence Baptist Church has been used as a staging area for disaster response. While gathering at Providence with survivors, first responders and volunteers, President Trump and his wife signed Bibles and anything else handed to them for those who asked.
When reporters over the weekend voiced strong opposition to Trump’s signing Bibles Pastor Sowell said he “didn’t think anything about it” when Trump began signing Bibles. The pastor noted signatures in his own Bible of friends and other significant people dating back to the mid-1970s. Individuals whose Bibles Trump signed – most of whom were young teens or children – “are going to remember the leader of the free world came down to our little corner of the world and said, ‘I care,'” Sowell said.
For as long as anyone can remember Christians in the South have sought signatures in their Bibles, especially from traveling preachers and evangelists who visited their churches. I’ve lost count of the number of people who have asked me to sign their Bibles as I’ve preached throughout all of the Southrern states.
Besides, as the media reported, presidents past such as Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan all signed Bibles when travelling through the South. Why the issue when President Trump did so?
I can only imagine that President Trump would have hurt people’s feelings had he refused to sign their Bible. Then, no doubt, the media would have criticized him for that.
