The statue of a former Confederate General James Webb Throckmorton will remain in place — for now.

On Tuesday, the City Council took no action following presentations from an advisory board whose members were nearly split on whether the statue should remain in place or be removed.

The discussion will remain open with the council potentially passing a resolution at a future meeting.


The City Council in Missouri’s capital city voted 8-2 on Monday approving the removal of a monument to Confederate General Sterling Price that was placed in the City by the UDC back in 1933.


The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors voted on Tuesday to donate a the Confederate monument on the grounds of the old Fairfax County Courthouse to the Stuart-Mosby Historical Society in Centreville.

The monument is dedicated to the memory of Captain John Quincy Marr, the first Confederate officer to be killed in The War.

A state historical marker commemorating the June 1, 1861 battle where Marr died will be given to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.


During their regular voting meeting, Hamilton County commissioners voted 6-3 against removing the bust of Confederate General A.P. Stewart from the county courthouse lawn on Georgia Avenue in downtown Chattanooga.


The NC Heritage PAC, a pro-Southern political fundraising organization run by members of the North Carolina division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans , is under investigation by the North Carolina Board of Elections.

According to news reports, the PAC hasn’t made any campaign contributions in 2020, but the N.C. SCV is being scrutinized for $5,000 paid in “attorney fees” on February 18 to Brian LiVecchi, a litigation attorney with Cumalander Adcock LLP.

The N.C. State Board of Elections wouldn’t comment on the investigation, or if any charges are pending against those involved with N.C. SCV or Heritage PAC.


The Confederate statue was removed overnight in Lexington, police confirmed Friday. The public was unable to view the removal of the monument, as roads surrounding the statue were blocked.

Supporters keeping vigil at the monument relocated to the lawn of the Mayor’s home on Saturday and Sunday.

“It is a little disconcerting,” said Lexington Mayor Newell Clark. “When folks come to city hall or a council meeting it is one thing; to come to my private home is another. I understand that I am the face of our community, but they need to respect my family’s privacy. It is unfortunate that these individuals choose to voice their opinion in that way.”

Perhaps, had the Mayor been more accessible to his citizens and more sympathetic toward their views, rather than hellbent to tear down their monuments over their objections, maybe, just maybe, the good people of Lexington would not have to have had need to go to the Mayor’s home just to be heard?


Hennepin County District Judge Peter A. Cahill on Thursday dismissed the third-degree murder charge against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who killed George Floyd.

Chauvin still faces the more serious charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter. Cahill also ruled against dismissing the aiding and abetting charges against J. Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane and Tou Thao – the other officers involved with Floyd’s death.


The Supreme Court deadlocked 4-to-4 over a Republican request in Pennsylvania not to count many mail ballots that arrive after Election Day. The tie means that a lower-court ruling stands and the ballots will be counted. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the three liberal justices.


Judge Amy Coney Barrett secured Senate Judiciary Committee approval on Oct. 22. Democratic senators boycotted the proceedings.

Her confirmation vote before the whole Senate is scheduled for Oct. 26th.

According to anonymous sources, local liberal man Penn Millikers proposed to his girlfriend but has refused to reveal his position on adultery until after the wedding is over.

The staunch Democrat said he wants the woman to marry him but won’t reveal his position on adultery until the marriage is finalized.

“Listen, I love you, babe, but you don’t deserve to know what I think about adultery until you say ‘I do,'” he told her during a romantic dinner just after he proposed.

“No matter how many times his girlfriend asked, Millikers refused to give a straight answer,” said the anonymous source. “He said something like: ‘Lookie here, Jill! If I tell you right now whether or not I plan to remain faithful to you, that would become the story! This is just a distraction! I think it’s better to just get married first with no prenup. Then I’ll tell you what I plan to do.'”

Other things he refuses to reveal his position on include taking showers, putting socks in the hamper, going out drinking with the boys every night, and watching sports all day while he ignores his family.

“You’ll find out my positions on these issues once we are married.”

Sid Secular was a weather reporter and radio personality in Baltimore, Maryland for many years before becoming an editor at the Citizen’s Informer.

Now retired, Sid regularly submits to a number of publications and also organizes and speaks at patriotic rallies.

The teacher said, “Let’s begin by reviewing some American history. Who said: ‘Give me Liberty, or give me Death’?”

She saw a sea of blank faces, except for Little Akio, a bright foreign exchange student from Japan, who had his hand up: “Patrick Henry, 1775,” he said.

“Very good!

Who said: ‘Government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the Earth’?”

Again, no response except from Little Akio: “Abraham Lincoln, 1863.”

“Excellent!” said the teacher continuing.

“Let’s try one a bit more difficult. Who said, ‘Ask not what your Country can do for you, but what you can do for your country?”

Once again, Akio’s was the only hand in the air and he said: “John F. Kennedy, 1961.”

The teacher snapped at the class, “Class, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Little Akio isn’t from this country and he knows more about our history than you do.”

She heard a loud whisper: “FxxxK the Japs.”

“Who said that? I want to know right now!” …she angrily demanded.

Little Akio put his hand up, “General MacArthur, 1945.”

At that point, a student in the back said, “I’m gonna puke.”

The teacher glares around and asks, “All right! Now who said that?”

Again, Little Akio says, “George Bush to the Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.

Now furious, another student yells, “Oh yeah? Suck this!”

Little Akio jumps out of his chair waving his hand and shouts to the teacher, “Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky, 1997!”

Now with almost mob hysteria someone said, “You little s#@t! If you say anything else, I’ll kill you!”

Little Akio frantically yells at the top of his voice, “Michael Jackson to the children testifying against him, 2004.”

The teacher fainted.

As the class gathered around the teacher on the floor, someone said,

“We’re all screwed!”

Little Akio said quietly, “The American public if Joe Biden gets elected.”


Dr. Chuck Baldwin is a radio broadcaster, syndicated columnist, and pastor dedicated to preserving the historic principles upon which America was founded.

Chuck was the Vice-President nominee for the Constitution Party in 2004 and the Party’s nominee for President in 2008 and 2012.

The World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers For Disease Control (CDC)—who together orchestrated the biggest global fraud in world history and who put the entire planet on military and police lockdown resulting in millions of lost jobs, millions of people thrust into poverty, millions of people becoming prisoners in nursing homes and even their own homes, untold broken families, ruined careers and suicides—recently published two reports that shatter the accepted corona narrative fostered by both organizations.

Typically, almost no one in the mainstream media will cover these reports, so you probably have heard nothing about them.

First Report: The World Health Organization has finally confirmed what we (and many experts and studies) have been saying for months – the coronavirus is no more deadly or dangerous than seasonal flu.

The WHO’s top brass made this announcement during a special session of the WHO’s 34-member executive board on Monday October 5th, it’s just nobody seemed to really understand it.

In fact, they didn’t seem to completely understand it themselves.

At the session, Dr Michael Ryan, the WHO’s Head of Emergencies revealed that they believe roughly 10% of the world has been infected with Sars-Cov-2. This is their “best estimate”, and a huge increase over the number of officially recognised cases (around 35 million).

Dr. Margaret Harris, a WHO spokeswoman, later confirmed the figure, stating it was based on the average results of all the broad seroprevalence studies done around the world.

As much as the WHO were attempting to spin this as a bad thing – Dr Ryan even said it means “the vast majority of the world remains at risk” – it’s actually good news. And confirms, once more, that the virus is nothing like as deadly as everyone predicted.

The global population is roughly 7.8 billion people, if 10% have been infected that is 780 million cases. The global death toll currently attributed to Sars-Cov-2 infections is 1,061,539.

That’s an infection fatality rate of roughly 0.14%. Right in line with seasonal flu and the predictions of many experts from all around the world.

0.14% is over 24 times LOWER than the WHO’s “provisional figure” of 3.4% back in March. This figure was used in the models which were used to justify lockdowns and other draconian policies.

In fact, given the over-reporting of alleged Covid deaths, the IFR is likely even lower than 0.14%, and could show Covid to be much less dangerous than flu.

Think about it: The American people have allowed themselves to be put in a giant open air prison, prohibiting them from going to work, from going to church, from going anywhere without a stupid face diaper, from going to movies, from going to concerts, from going to sporting events, from going to bars or restaurants, from going to hair salons or barber shops, forcing them to close their businesses, forcing them to close their stores, forcing them to close their shops, forcing them to close their churches—basically, forcing them to abandon virtually all of their God-given, constitutionally protected liberties.

FOR WHAT? For a virus that is less harmful than the seasonal flu. And WHO admits it.

Second Report: The CDC document is titled, CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel. It is dated July 13, 2020.

Buried deep in the document, on page 39, in a section titled, “Performance Characteristics,” we have this: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available, assays [diagnostic tests] designed for detection of the 2019-nCoV RNA were tested with characterized stocks of in vitro transcribed full length RNA…”

The key phrase there is: “Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available…”

Every object that exists can be quantified, which is to say, measured. The use of the term “quantified” in that phrase means: the CDC has no measurable amount of the virus, because it is unavailable. THE CDC HAS NO VIRUS.

A further tip-off is the use of the word “isolates.” This means NO ISOLATED VIRUS IS AVAILABLE.




As if this were not enough of a revelation to shock the world, the CDC goes on to say they are presenting a diagnostic PCR test to detect the virus-that-hasn’t-been-isolated …and the test is looking for RNA which is PRESUMED to come from the virus that hasn’t been proved to exist.

So, now the CDC is saying they cannot prove the coronavirus even exists.

I say again, this entire coronavirus narrative is the biggest global fraud in world history. In fact, this fraud is so large it cannot be explained in natural terms. The sheer magnitude of such global devastation, disruption and decimation of Liberty and natural living can only be explained in terms of the supernatural.

Yes, I’m saying it straight out: The corona fraud is a work of evil spirits. It is a lie pitched from the pits of Hell.

This means that the medical professionals, local and county health boards, State governors, mayors, city councils, county commissions, school boards, government bureaucrats, media professionals, Big Tech executives and PASTORS who are blindly going along with the corona narrative are being manipulated by evil spirits.
There can be no other explanation.

And the real lesson of the corona fraud is the almost universal lack of spiritual discernment and courage within the Church. If I am right that the corona fraud is a creation of the dark regions of the netherworld, the ONLY answer to it is the heavenly light of spiritual truth. That means THE CHURCH must respond.

Except it’s not!

Pastors are silent. TV preachers are silent. Evangelists are silent. Christian educators are silent. Christian authors are silent. Christian radio broadcasters are silent. Christian doctors are silent. Christian attorneys are silent. Christian businessmen are silent. Christians in the pews are silent. Save for a precious few, the entire Church is utterly, shamefully SILENT.

The only thing Christians can focus on is Donald Trump’s reelection. They are absolutely insensible to the fact that all of this happened ON TRUMP’S WATCH—and with his assistance. Donald Trump is as much a stooge of evil spirits as anyone else in Washington, D.C.

In fact, I just discovered that here in Montana, the governor’s Emergency and Disaster orders expired months ago. The only Emergency Order (EO) that is in effect, the EO that maintains the phony corona narrative, the EO that keeps businesses closed, keeps churches closed, keeps theaters closed, keeps concert halls and sporting events closed and that forces people into agonizing isolation and forces them to wear those stupid face diapers is Donald Trump’s Emergency Order.

Look hard at your State laws, folks, because I suspect that many states are likewise suffering primarily under Trump’s Emergency Order—the same Emergency Order that is funneling trillions of taxpayer dollars into the perpetuation of the phony corona narrative and the giant corporations that are profiting from it.

If Donald Trump truly wanted to end the lockdowns, shutdowns, closures, etc., if he truly wanted Americans to go back to work, if he truly wanted the American people to have their lives and their liberties restored, he would rescind his Emergency Order NOW.

So, why hasn’t he done it?

Christians foolishly assume that this nightmare will go away after Trump is reelected. It won’t, because this is NOT a political or natural attack; this is a supernatural or spiritual attack that can only be defeated by a supernatural and spiritual counterattack—a counterattack that hasn’t come. After this much time with no meaningful response from America’s spiritual leaders, the powers of darkness know that the Church is ignorant, impotent and indolent. As a result, nothing stands in their way.

The power elite have already started the next phase of our open air imprisonment. If you don’t believe that, read this:

Google recently teamed up with the Pentagon as part of the new, AI-driven “Predictive Health” program. Though only focused on “predictive cancer diagnoses” for now, Google and the military have apparent plans to expand the AI model for automating and predicting Covid-19 diagnoses.

Here is the rest of the chilling report.

They are planning the creation of a real-life Minority Report society, except MUCH WORSE.

Trump’s decision to use the U.S. military to deliver corona vaccines and/or other Big Pharma solutions to the faux corona pandemic is no small matter. It has nothing to do with speeding a wonder drug to America’s heartland for our medical healing. It has everything to do with merging America’s healthcare and pharmaceutical industries with the U.S. military for our near-future enslavement.

Of course Joe Biden is no better.

Again, this is not a political problem; it is a spiritual problem. And as long as Christians keep shirking their responsibility to apply spiritual solutions to spiritual problems and keep telling themselves that their national salvation depends on perfidious, unprincipled politicians, the more they aid and abet their own enslavement.

As already stated, the phony corona narrative is a lie pitched from the pits of Hell. It’s past time for Christians to stand up and say so. Christ told us that the gates of Hell would not prevail against the Church. So, why is the Church not storming the gates? Scripture tells us that when we resist the evil one, he will flee from us. So, when will the Church start resisting?

America’s future is not in the hands of the politicians; it is in the hands of the men in the pulpits. And so far, all most of them have done is wash their hands.


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 .

This thought came to me as I sat at the computer this morning. How many of those that rail about Confederates having been traitors have any concern for those that are, in our day, working to undermine the country? The answer is probably “NONE.”

We have a “news” media in our day that specializes in majoring in the minors, or better yet, distracting the public from important issue to those that are irrelevant. It’s what they do for a living. The media today, as a whole, would put that old Communist newspaper, Pravda, to shame. As least with the old Communist newspaper you knew where they were coming from. Our media today tries to hide the fact that most of them are really dedicated leftists now. Witness how they downplay certain stories while giving headlines to stuff that really belongs in the wastebasket.

We heard all about the Russian collusion theory for over three years, with the Mueller investigation and all that gobbledygook and now we are finding out that it was all a croc .With new documents being declassified we are finding out that the Clinton campaign in 2016 really pushed, and paid for, all this tripe about Trump colluding with Putin as part of their campaign to keep Trump out of the White House. And what will our intrepid “news” media do with all these revelations? Well, they will ignore them as long as they can. And when they become prevalent enough that they can no longer ignore them then they will try to spin them in such a way as to make Trump look like the villain rather than Hillary and the Democratic establishment. The New York Times claims that they publish “All the news that’s fit to print.” What they really mean is that they publish “all the news that fits” (their agenda).

And now that Trump wants a whole batch of new material to be declassified so the public can find out what has really gone on for the past four years, a whole batch of people in government don’t want this stuff to ever see the light of day. They claim it will reveal “security information” detrimental to the country. What they are really afraid of is that it will reveal how they have been complicit in trying to have Trump removed from office and if enough people find out about that and it is exposed enough, they might have to do some jail time. Worse, could some of them be indicted for treason? In our present political climate that’s not likely to happen, but it’s an interesting thought. Maybe it should happen!

If you look at the platform of the Kamala Harris/Joe Biden ticket and see where they are really coming from you have to admit they are running on a platform that would make Karl Marx gasp with anticipation. They would emasculate the Second Amendment and raise taxes through the roof and folks would have to wear these foolish face masks for perpetuity. I can’t see how anyone in their right mind can vote for such–how shall I say it–damnfoolishness!

With some of what is going on nowadays you have to wonder who the real traitors in this country are. Maybe the real traitors in our day would like us to focus on the supposed treason on those in the old Confederate States so that we will spend less time focusing on their present efforts at treason. Sort of a bait and switch tactic.

Regardless of what you hear, the old Confederates were not traitors. There might be some question about some of those today who are trying to label them as traitors. If secession had truly been treason, believe me, they would have prosecuted Jeff Davis for it in court. The fact that they didn’t do that speaks volumes.

Update–From Judicial Watch–Investigative reporter John Solomon said that CIA Director Gina Haspel is blocking the release of classified documents to protect the agencies reputation like Christopher Wray is doing for the FBI. “It’s a continuation of the slow walk that she and FBI Director Wray and other deep state bureaucrats in the State Department have done over the past two years. They have tried to stop this Russia case from unraveling, the Ukraine case from unraveling ,the carefully-crafted false story they gave the American people.”

You have to ask, what are they afraid of? They are afraid we will find out the truth and that they have been lying to us and some of us will start asking why. And to that question they dare not give us an honest answer. Trump would be better served if both Haspel and Wray were given their walking papers.

Three people have been hospitalized who happen to attend the Brooks Pentecostal Church in Waldo County. The Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention’s Director Dr. Nirav Shah calls a news conference Thursday and calls it an “outbreak.” The national media was there and they have since been all over it.

The World Series is tied 1-1 and they are playing in Texas. So why were the national media even in rural Maine? And why the hubabaloo over three pidly virus cases?

Are we being set up? Are we about to see a new wave of persecution against churches and faith-based gatherings?
