REST IN PEACE, Calvin Crane

The Washington Post featured an editorial this week in which they accused all supporters of Confederate monuments of being “idol worshipers.”


Supporters and opponents of Confederate monuments gathered in downtown Pittsboro, North Carolina on Saturday afternoon to hold opposing rallies.

Police closely monitored both rallies.

As we reported last month, the Chatham County Board of Commissioners voted 4-1 to move the Confederate monument in front of the courthouse, which has been in place since 1907. This gives until October 1st for the local chapter of the UDC to come up with a plan for the statue.

The reality is the United Daughters of the Confederacy gifted the statue — which would make it public property and as a public monument the 2015 law which limits removal and alteration of monuments on public grounds would apply. That is why the City, over a hundred years later has “repudiated” the gift. If the courts allow this repudiation, which we suspect they will, it will set a dangerous precedent erasing the monument protection laws in most states.


A student is climing to have found the remains of the Silent Sam monument. While the Charlotte Observer has reported the discovery they have not confirmed it. So far, The University of North Carolina will not comment on the matter.


A Judge has finally ruled that both of Charlotsville, Virginia’s monuments will remain. Now we wait to see if the City files an apeal.


The Clinton School District has confiscated the Confederate Battle Flag of a student who waved it at a recent pep-rally. The district is not even talking to the student’s parents except to say that the matter has been “handled.” WAPT16 News has interviewed the parents but has been unable to obtain any comment from the school. So far the student has not been disciplined apart from the confiscation of their Flag.


More sexual assault allegations have been leveled against Supreme Court Justice Brent Kavanaugh.


Just last week, about 1000 representatives of The World Religions of Peace met in Germany, pushing UN Agenda 2030 as the basis for one world religion (Ag21 on steroids).

This is a particularly frightening vision of socialism and communism, under the guise of saving Mother Earth and fighting the increasingly discredited non scientific “Climate Change.”

Pastors have a ready audience. Well, the UN just figured this out. And their evil plan is to subvert God’s plan for his people and substitute an anti-Christian message for a humanist point of view using faith leaders.

Of course, gun control is central to their plan, what’s to worry? The murdering Red Chinese are deeply involved in designing Agenda 2030 and disarmament has always worked for them.

Mass migration is promoted as humanitarian while opponents are hateful and bigoted.

Beware Patriots! This is filtering into Christian churches slowly but surely even here at home. Pope Francis ( no surprise ) is right out front and I found other Christian denominations involved. Leaders from Episcopal, Lutheran, Methodist and even Baptists have bought in.

ANOTHER ship with climate-change warriors gets stuck in ice

What is it with climate-change alarmists who try to panic everyone into thinking we’re all going to die from melting ice?


This country is America with ALL of its history,,just like any other country with a history. If these idiots don’t like it here….show them the door. They will find there is little support in other countries for their actions. They are being totally destructive to the country and are just as bad as the illegal invaders who are determined to use us for their greed and turn the U.S. into another third world. Any elected official who agrees with these actions should be in prison for denying their oath of office and treated as a criminal. Jail is too good for all of them.


NASCAR has rejected multiple ads for firearms, gun store and manufacturer Dark Storm Industries and online retailer K-Var Corp.

Both companies said that NASCAR rejected ads for guns that they submitted after being contacted by the racing organization to advertise in their publications.

“NASCAR decided to turn their back on their customer base, joining the likes of Yeti, Dick’s and Under Armour,” Dark Storm wrote in a post on Instagram. “We were approached by a NASCAR publication eager to earn our business, but after submitting our ad it was immediately rejected, stating that we cannot depict ‘assault weapons.'”

National Event Publications and NASCAR did not respond to requests for comment.


Treaties that the Cherokees signed with the “forked tounge” white men back in 1785 and 1835 give the Tribe the right to appoint a delegate to Congress. Back in August the Tribe’s principal, Chief Chuck Hoskin, appointed Kimberley Teehee to the U.S. House of Representatives.

The House has not yet offficially sat Teehee saying that new legislation must be passed to enable the House to seat her. That said, the House leadership has aknowledged the appointment and is working on passing the neccessary legislation.

Teehee had worked in the White House for both the Clinton and Obama administrations. So House Democrats are eager to get her officially seated.

The Bolshevik Revolutionaries and Their American Millionaire Buddies
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.

One false premise that has been put forth in our day is that all communists and capitalists are bitter adversaries. You would think given what their supposed differences with one another are supposed to be, that’s how it should be. Sorry to burst that fairy tale bubble, but it jus ain’t so. So start to disabuse yourselves of that fallacy right now.

Antony Sutton, in his informative book Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution published way back in 1974, blew this foolishness right out of the water. On page 17, Sutton told us: “Consequently, one barrier to mature understanding of recent history is the notion that all capitalists are the bitter and unswerving enemies of all Marxists and socialists. This erroneous idea originated with Karl Marx and was undoubtedly useful to his purposes. In fact, the idea is nonsense. There has been a continuing, albeit concealed, alliance between international political capitalists and international revolutionary socialists-to their mutual benefit. This alliance has gone unobserved largely because historians-with a few notable exceptions-have an unconscious Marxian bias and are thus locked into the impossibility of any such alliance existing. The open-minded reader should bear two clues in mind: monopoly capitalists are the bitter enemies of laissez-faire entrepreneurs, and, given the weakness of socialist central planning, the totalitarian socialist state is a perfect captive market for monopoly capitalists, if an alliance can be made with the socialist powerbrokers.” Do you begin to see how this might work out for those at the top in both groups?

One way the results of this unholy alliance gets peddled to gullible Americans is via the college campuses in this country, both now and in the past.

Way back in February, 1919, a man named E.H. Doheny noted this, according to Antony Sutton, when he told someone else that: “Bolshevism is the true fruit of socialism and if you will read the interesting testimony before the Senate Committee that showed up all these pacifists and peace-makers as German sympathizers, Socialists and Bolsheviks, you will see that a majority of college professors in the United States are teaching socialism, and Bolshevism and that fifty-two college professors were on so-called peace committees in 1914. The worst Bolshevists in the United States are not only college professors, of whom President Wilson is one, but capitalists and the wives of capitalists and neither seem to know what they are talking about.” Did any of you all pick up what he said about college professors back in 1919? If you did, do you now know why you have problems with college professors in our day? This is not a new problem, folks. It has been a problem since well before any of us was even born! It’s bad enough that many of our capitalists turned out to be Marxist sycophants, but when many of your college professors end up in the same leftist camp-this affects your children and their children if you remain ignorant of what is transpiring.

Anyway, in this vein, I noted in the last article that Leon Trotsky was arrested in Canada. The Canadians reasoned within themselves that if Trotsky took Russia out of World War One, that would turn more Germans loose to kill Canadians on the Western Front. It would have, but there was more involved than that. Art Thompson noted in In the Shadows of the Deep State that “The apartment just above that of Col. House in New York was occupied by the head of the British Secret Service in the United States, Sir William Wiseman, and they knew each other. After the arrest of Trotsky, House informed Sir Wiseman that President Wilson wanted Trotsky released. This was done, and Trotsky and his entourage proceeded to Russia, where they were instrumental in the Bolshevik takeover of Russia.” For those who might not know, Col. Edward Mandell House was “Woodrow Wilson’s alter-ego.” He was what Henry Kissinger was to Richard Nixon and what Dick Cheney was to Bush 2. In other words, he really pulled the presidential strings and the puppet president danced to his tune.

So Trotsky ended up in Russia, with $10,000 in cash, over and above the 20 mil he had been handed to finance the Bolsheviks. No one knows where this dinero came from. Some think it was the German government, but no one really knows. It was known, however, that the German government helped Lenin to get from Switzerland back into Russia.

Interestingly enough, the Bolsheviks did not overthrow the Czar. They overthrew a provisional government that was led by socialists. Art Thompson observed that “…the banker Jacob Schiff of Kuhn-Loeb gave $20,000,000 toward the Bolshevik Revolution. He may have been the individual who helped Trotsky live in America, but there are hints of others as well…There have always been the ‘George Soros’ types of millionaires promoting communism. (Soros, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, today finances many communist and radical groups not only in America but also around the world.)

Does anyone ever begin to wonder why these rich financiers are so hot to fund and support communist and socialist groups that are supposed to be the sworn enemies of the rich and powerful? That’s a question more people need to begin to ask.

Reading books like The Rockefeller File, which you can find on line, will start to give you some of the answers, and they may arm you with more questions you need to start asking. So start reading and learning, because what these people do in our day will affect your descendants.

“In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood. And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter. Yea, truth faileth, and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment,”
–Isaiah 59:13-15.

What a system! Take a public tragedy and turn it on the law-abiding citizens and punish them for it. A mentally unstable person kills a number of people and what is the answer of the revolutionary? Take the protection away from the law-abiding citizen and destroy his heritage, desecrate the graves of his loved ones, and remove monuments of his forefathers. Isaiah was right, there he was speaking of “oppression and revolt” and Jehovah is displeased that there is no justice.

The Constitution has been eroding from the time of Lincoln to this day. From the time the War of Northern Aggression began in the name of preserving the Constitution and the using of it to destroy the constitutional rights of all the citizens of another part of the country. Oh, you say it was to destroy slavery! Did it destroy slavery or did it turn the entire country into a system that punishes you if you do not subscribe to the new mores and finance spiritual evils by the government taking the money of law-abiding citizens to support evils that they reject? You may be ready to blow your stack just now. Before you pop your cork consider that 90% of the Southern people did not own slaves at the time of the war. So is it your view of justice to punish 90% of a population for what you believe is wrong with 10% who legally own slaves as did Federal General U. S. Grant through his wife? You must consider that owning slaves was legal in the United States at that time. Why not try legislation? No the way of revolution was instituted and over 600,000 people died as a result and hundreds of thousands were maimed! No, the leaders decided that a revolutionary unconstitutional approach must be taken insuring the destruction of 100% of rights of Southern people. A dangerous precedent was set when revolution was practiced to achieve some social norm. It is revolution to force people to do your bidding using the Constitution even while you are treating them unconstitutionally by destroying their rights, by trying to subdue them by armed force, by burning their homes, by raping their wives and daughters and servants, by destroying their businesses, by desecrating their places of worshipping the God of the Bible, and all in the name of some revolutionary righteousness which is passed off as loving the Constitution while violating it.

Look at what is about to happen to the Second Amendment to the Constitution. These revolutionaries are about to try to use the tragedy of gun violence to remove the protection of the law-abiding citizens and further erode their constitutional rights. Question? Has making gun ownership illegal ever worked? Look at Chicago the waste land of law and order. Who is unarmed there? Only the law-abiding citizen is unarmed and cannot protect himself or herself or their families from robbers, muggers, and murderers. This makes it safer for the corrupt political machine there and its army of lawless killers. Now the mayor of Chicago wants to blame people in other states with its being a killing zone. What a picture of a revolutionary condition!

On May 10, 1871 Dr. John L. Girardeau, who had been a Confederate Chaplain of the 23rd South Carolina Infantry, spoke at the Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston, SC welcoming the re-interment of South Carolina soldiers who had died at the Battle of Gettysburg. Dr. Girardeau had been a pastor before and after the war. Then he became a professor at Columbia Presbyterian Seminary. His address was called “A Heritage of Resisting Tyranny.” He puts what I have been saying in a historical context so I feel compelled to turn him loose. He being dead yet speaketh:

There are three great elements in the social constitution of man, involving corresponding necessities-the Domestic, the Political and the Religious. Answering to these fundamental features of our nature there are three Divinely ordained institutes, independent of, but related to, each other -the Family, the State, and the Church. Taken together they constitute the trinity of human relations. Each of them is indispensable to the wellbeing, if not the very preservation, of the race. They are the pillars on which rests the stability of society, as well as the prime motors in its [general] Progress-its organic nisus [effort] towards the great end for which it was originally ordained. To injure either of them is to strike a blow at the root of human happiness; and so intimate is the bond between them, so nice and delicate their action and re-action upon each other, that to impair one of them is to imperil the integrity of them all. Adverse to each and all of these beneficent ordinations, and consequently antagonistic to the vital interests which they suppose, there is a spirit abroad in the earth, almost universal in its operation, the measures of which are characterized by a subtlety and unity betokening the shaping influence of one master intelligence-that of the Arch-foe of God and man. Need it be said that this is Radicalism? Conceived in revolt from the sublime and harmonious order in which the different elements operate, it purposes to upturn the very ground-forms of society. Nothing that is sustained by the experience of the past, nothing that is venerable with age and consecrated by immemorial associations, nothing that descending through the ages has retained, in the midst of change and revolution, the fragrance of our primeval estate, or even of patriarchal dignity and simplicity, nothing just, true and pure, will be allowed to escape the sweep of this deluge. Montalbert [1] has said, in effect, that there is a force in Europe, set in motion, by radical agitators, and penetrating and impelling the sea-like masses; which, if unchecked, is destined erelong to obliterate every existing secular and ecclesiastical organization.

This ruthless, leveling Spirit wages war against the Family, the State and the Church. Hearth-stones, grave, altars, temples,-all are borne down under its tempestuous irruption [violent invasion]. Nothing is safe from it. There is no sanctuary which it will not invade, no just, holy, time-honored sanction which it will not violate. Contemning the ordinances of man, it swaggers, in its Titanic audacity, against the empire of the Eternal. A leader of Parisian Socialism is reported recently to have exclaimed, that if he could reach the Almighty he would poniard [stab] Him upon His throne! Breach after breach has it already opened through the barriers which limit and restrain it, and in its onward rush, should laws, constitutions and public sentiment fail to impede its course, can only be arrested, aside from immediate Divine intervention, by the iron power of imperial Absolutism. Plunged into the vortex of anarchy by this Genius of Lawlessness, swimming for life in the vast gulf of the miseries induced by it, men will in very despair turn for refuge to Autocratic Despotism. It has been said by a great writer on Government, that there are two cardinal wants of society-protection and liberty; and that of these the first in order is protection. Existence must be pre-supposed by happiness. In accordance with this principle it is but natural to judge that, when men have tried the desolating misrule of radical anarchy, they will recoil for protection under the sceptre of Despotism. But a selfish desire for safety will not have eradicated the prescriptive habits of democratic license, and the probable resultant of these conflicting forces will be a mechanical union between the imperial and popular element-between Consolidated Despotism and Democratic Absolutism. To this the indications in Europe and on this Continent seem to point. Extremes will meet on a principle shared by both-uncompromising hostility to regulated government and constitutional liberty. Apparently as far apart as the poles, they will be united by a common axis, on which the insane attempt will be made to drive the revolutions of the political world. And if an opinion might be ventured, suggested by a probable view of Inspired Prophecy, the day may not be far distant when this consummation will be reached. The body of iron will attached to feet of clay-significant symbol of a great Imperial Despotism resting on the uncertain masses of a fierce Democracy.

When this climax of crime and folly shall have been attained, there will be one of two alternatives before a sickened and despairing world,-on the one hand the experience of a condition of things in which a social, political and religious Chaos will reign, in which star after star of hope will be quenched, the constellations of the great lights be blotted from the firmament, and the earth saturated with blood shall go down into a seething abyss of destruction; or, on the other hand, a supernatural interposition of God to rectify the otherwise remediless disorders of the world, and the re-establishment of a theocratic government no longer confining its sway to one favoured people, but assuming the diadem of universal dominion, healing the schisms of the race, collecting the struggling nations into one peaceful flock, and distributing with impartial hand the blessings of equal rule, regulated liberty and wide-spread domestic peace.

This somewhat extended portraiture of the spirit of Radicalism will not be deemed out of place, when it is remembered that it powerfully contributed to produce the evils under which we are now suffering. It was against its aggressions, in the particular forms in which they were directed upon the South, that these men whose memories we honour today and their compatriots contended unto death. It was this fell spirit which, aiming at the destruction of an institution peculiar to the South, overrode every moral and constitutional obstacle which opposed its progress, drenched a once peaceful land in fraternal blood, and has occasioned that disturbed condition of affairs which is now likely to be confined to no section, but threatens to agitate the whole country. It began by assuming the existence of a “higher law,” growing out of what were denominated the instincts of human nature, which it held to be superior, in the sphere of morals, to Divine Revelation, and, in that of politics, to the provisions of the Federal Constitution. Which such a theory from which to derive its inspirations, it is not to be wondered at that it regarded neither the laws of God nor of man which were conceived to lie in the path to the attainment of its ends. Pushing out this baleful dogma to its legitimate results, it boldly invaded the political order, and the fundamental principles of that federative government, which we had inherited from our fathers. Resting not until it had destroyed the attitude of strict neutrality imparted to the Constitution by the wisdom of its framers, it perverted that instrument into an organ, and the government into an agent of a section, trampled under foot the rights of sovereign States, and utterly refused to the people of the South all claim to think and act for themselves. It was a case demanding resistance from freemen. It was in view of such subversions of their constitutional rights and liberties that the Southern States in their organic capacity, and by the solemn acts of conventions, determined to withdraw from a confederation in which it was plain as day that their hopes of justice and equal consideration were destroyed. This act of sovereignty they were refused the liberty of performing; and no choice was left but unconditionally to submit or meet force with force. They adopted the alternative of freemen. In the struggle which ensued the Sons of the South, feeble in numbers and in the apparatus of war, excluded from the fellowship of nations, cut off by a cordon of fire from access to the ports of the world, and overwhelmed by vast hordes representing almost every European nationality, failed to secure the Independence they sought. They lost the power to exercise certain rights and principles. But did they lose these rights and principles themselves? How could they? Except in the case of any which, acting in their organic capacity since the close of the war, they may have deliberately relinquished. Lost them? Yes, as a weak man, overpowered by the superior physical strength of another, may be said to lose the right for which he has contended. He loses the exercise of it, until he has the power to recover it. Are the religious principles of the martyr destroyed because he is burnt for them? Does the freeman lose his natural or political rights because tyranny represses their exercise? The very struggle to maintain them, the blood that was shed for them, the lives that were sacrificed in their defense render their rights and principles all the dearer to men out of whom all love of liberty is not completely crushed. Our principles were defeated, not necessarily lost. It behooves us to cling to them as drowning men to the fragments of a wreck. They furnish the only hope for our political future-the only means of escape from anarchy on the one hand, or from despotism on the other, which are left to a once free and happy country. If the death of our brethren shall have the effect of enhancing these principles in our regard it will not have been in vain.

Dr. Girardeau put things in perspective then and now. Yes, we have revolution induced by tragedy which adds insult to injury. Where is the sanity? Who will guard the original intentions of the Constitution? God help us.

Isaiah spoke about lying against Jehovah by departing from our God via fomenting oppression and revolt along with hearts that speak falsely against authority. The result is that the principles of morality have been removed from the culture. He said that justice seemed to be estranged because truth had fallen in the street and uprightness was not allowed. When truth fails then those who flee from evil become prey to the revolutionary. Jehovah sees that there is no justice. Only the intervention of the Lord can help us, but we must stand for His truth and with His truth in His Son the Lord Jesus Christ!

Forget the Russians: It’s the Federal Reserve Seeking to Meddle in Our Elections
by Dr. Ron Paul

Ron Paul is a physician, 10-term Republican congressman, two-time Republican presidential candidate, and the nominee of the Libertarian Party in the 1988 U.S. Presidential Election.

The US Constitution never granted the federal government authority to create a central bank. The Founders, having lived through hyperinflation themselves, understood that government should never have a printing press at its disposal. But from the very beginning of America’s f ounding, the desire for a crony central bank was strong.

In fact, two attempts were made at creating a permanent central bank in America prior to the creation of the Fed. Fortunately, the charter for The First Bank was allowed to expire in 1811, and President Andrew Jackson closed down the Second Bank in 1833.

But, unfortunately, a third attempt was successful and the Federal Reserve was unconstitutionally created by Congress in 1913. Americans have been living under a corrupt and immoral monetary system ever since. The Federal Reserve is the printing press that has financed the creation of the largest government to ever exist. Endless welfare and endless military spending are both made possible by the Federal Reserve. The Fed can just print the money for whatever the US establishment wants, so those of us who long for a Constitutional and limited government have few tools at our disposal.

Despite all the propaganda claiming “independence,” the Fed has always been a deeply political institution. Because the Fed is a government-created monopoly with key government-appointed employees, its so-called “independence” is a mere fiction. However, the US Congress created the Fed with legislation; it can also abolish the Fed with legislation.

Last week, the facade of F ederal Reserve “independence” was dealt a severe blow. Ironically, the person who broadcast to the world that the Fed is anything but “independent” was ex -New York Fed President Bill Dudley. Dudley wrote that, “Trump’s re -election arguably presents a threa t to the United States’ and global economy,
and if the goal of monetary policy is to achieve the best long- term economic outcome, the Fed’s officials should consider how their decisions would affect the political outcome of 2020.”

The timing of Dudley’s threats to use Fed monetary policy to affect the outcome of a US election couldn’t come at a more striking time.

After all, for more than two solid years Americans have been bombarded with fabricated stories about Russians rigging our elections. And yet here is a Federal Reserve official threatening to do the same exact thing – but this time for real!

Whether it’s the mainstream media, the CIA, the FBI, or now the Federal Reserve, more and more Americans are waking up to the fact that there is a Deep State in America and its interests have nothing to do with American liberty. In fact, our liberty is what the Deep State wants to abolish.

When it comes to the Federal Reserve, I stand firmly by my conviction that it needs to be audited and then ended as soon as possible.

America’s Founders were not perfect. They were human beings just as capable of error as we are. But they had a remarkable understanding of the ideas of liberty. They understood that liberty cannot exist with a government that has access to a printing press. Sound money and liberty go hand-in-hand. If we want to enjoy the blessings of Liberty, we must audit and then end the Federal Reserve!

Pictured is Calvin Crane, behind him is a picture of his father James Crane who was a Confederate veteran.

Calvin passed on Sunday at 102 years of age. We believe him to have been the last living “real son,” or the last direct descendent (son, not grandson, great grandson, but actual first generation son) of a Confederate veteran.

We are grateful for Calvin’s efforts to keep alive the memory and honor of his father. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Andrew Sullivan, editor and administrator of multiple Southern Heritage and politial activism pages wrote to tell us that his Fans of Robert E Lee Facebook page has been pulled by fACEBOOK because of a “factual posting” he had made on another page.

I think all concerned about Southern History should be concerned.

And being a concerned Southerner, as you are reading this, I am making what may be my last trip of the year to our nation’s capitol. Pray that this trip will be fruitful. When I get home I will post an update as to what was accomplished on this trip as well as an update on my recent trips to the Capitols of Indiana, Illinois, Georgia, and Tennessee.

Know that the gracious gifts of a few are what is making it possible for me to make these trips to advocate on behalf of our ancestors and for our shared Confederate heritage.

Until Next Week,
