Mitt Romney lost and now he's losing it.


It is disqualifying for a modern-day presidential nominee to refuse to release tax returns to the voters, especially one who has not been subject to public scrutiny in either military or public service. Tax returns provide the public with its sole confirmation of the veracity of a candidate's representations regarding charities, priorities, wealth, tax conformance, and conflicts of interest. Further, while not a likely circumstance, the potential for hidden inappropriate associations with foreign entities, criminal organizations, or other unsavory groups is simply too great a risk to ignore for someone who is seeking to become commander-in-chief.

Odessa realtor Michelle Blackwell’s latest ad reaches out to potential clients who plan to make good on their promise to leave the country if Donald Trump is elected president.

It’s a common threat every presidential election cycle, it seems, but it has really gained traction the past year since Trump made his presidential aspirations known.

Blackwell, who is with the Heritage Real Estate Group, features prominently in the web ad.

“Leaving the country if TRUMP is elected PRESIDENT? Give me a call and LET’S GET YOUR HOME SOLD!!” the ad states.

Bernie Sanders is a Communist and an Ignoramus

 Via Billy

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been getting away for years with describing himself as a socialist, when in reality he is an outright America-hating communist.

This belief in communism is reflected in the Sanders platform. Even a brief glance reveals his plan to be hopelessly utopian and insane. It will extinguish freedom and shutter businesses and cause widespread suffering especially among the poor people he claims to want to help. It is a program for exporting the best and the brightest to places that appreciate them.

But identifying Sanders as a communist can be a risky proposition in modern-day America. The Left so dominates American culture that the word communist itself has become jarring, not because communism is bad but instead because leftists believe communism is good.

Is “White Supremacy” an Exclusively “Southern” Ideology?

 Gettysburg Address
“We abhor the doctrine of the “Types of Mankind;” first, because it is at war with scripture, which teaches us that the whole human race is descended from a common parentage; and, secondly, because it encourages and incites brutal masters to treat negroes, not as weak, ignorant and dependent brethren, but as wicked beasts, without the pale of humanity. The Southerner is the negro’s friend, his only friend.”
--George Fitzhugh, 1854
On April 23 (judging by the pictures) five idiots—probably all FBI informants—showed up at Stone Mountain, GA to hold a “white supremacist” event.  All waved what appeared to be newly purchased Confederate Battle Flags.  These knuckleheads were met by a mob of violent “protestor” knuckleheads—probably all on a Marxist organization’s payroll—who started throwing rocks at police and igniting fires.  Eventually, the riot squad was called in, arrests were made, and order was restored, but not before pictures of the “white supremacist” kooks waving Confederate Battle Flags were plastered all over the Internet.

The message was clear: the Confederate Battle Flag is a symbol of hate and white power.

Socialism's False Promise

Via Billy


Given its track record, one wonders why socialism is gaining in popularity in the U.S. and what appeal it has to a generation that, apparently, knows little about it.

A recent survey from Harvard University has found that 51 percent of young people between the ages of 18 and 29 do not support capitalism. Just 42 percent support the economic system that has allowed even the poorest American to live better and to have more opportunity for advancement than most of the rest of the world. Thirty-three percent of those surveyed support socialism.

Why does socialism receive such strong support among the young? I think it’s partly due to what is being taught in too many public schools and universities and it is partly due to ignorance and human nature, which would rather get a check than earn one.

Three quotes about socialism sum up both its false promise and its danger.

On Resistance

History shows that all successful revolutions established an alternate 'shadow' government
during the uprising.  Many of those unsuccessful also did, but weaker, less competent, or
just as corrupt as that which they opposed.  It was and is, a hallmark of the Communists.

The noise of the internet shows no such activity among the 'Patriot' or 'Freedom Forces'.
Lots of gabble about local resistance, and resisting Mil/LEO oppression, all of which sounds
great over a beer and a bag of wings, but not so pretty good the deeper we get into this

The Confederacy established, from the get go, a legitimate central government, with legal
authority to act in defence of the Southern States.  Unfortunately, as a confederation of
sovereign states, it lacked the power to make its laws stick.  Lesson there for would be
secessionists.  Common cause is insufficient to ensure common effort.  Various States
went their own way, leaving Richmond to scrounge, scrabble, and root hog or die.
North Carolina and Georgia were two that withheld critical supplies from troops of other
states, in dire need. 

Appomattox saw thousands of starving, ragged, barefoot rebels stack arms, while tons of
supplies were held back, including 80,000 pairs of shoes, thousands of uniform jackets,
and rations were left to be taken up by Yankee soldiers or freed slaves.  Lee had to beg
rations of Grant while warehouses in certain states were full.

In the American Revolution, New England, once the English were removed from Boston,
pretty much forgot about the war, busy selling foods and produce to the enemy; and handed
it off to Southern States to fight.  Royal Navy ships had no difficulty receiving water, meat,
vegetables or grain from the Yankee 'rebels'.  At Valley Forge, the Army starved while good
Pennsylvania farmers supplied the British with beef, poultry, and all the sustenance needed.  
The occupying forces of Philadelphia and New York never went hungry.

So, from our own history, we have key lessons in the conduct of a War for Independence.

Not everybody on your side is on your side.  Beware the convenient "Patriot".  Beware of the
personal jealousies, selfishness, and downright ignorance of your 'fellow patriots'.  Know that
better than two thirds of Americans did not participate in the Revolution.  Know that more than
a few 'Southern Gentlemen'  avoided service with the Armies.  Know that many just up and left
for Europe or Mexico, to save their precious skins.  Know also that the war against Dixie was 
largely fought by Irish and German immigrants, recruited for the purpose by Lincoln's agents.

The idea of the Noble American, brave and true, is mostly a *fiction created after the fact. Yankee
states recruited ex- slaves in occupied territories and counted them against their quotas for draftees
Yankees bought 'substitutes' in Europe rather than get down and dirty in Southern mud and blood.
Draft dodging didn't start with Bill Clinton.*I disagree.The War Didn’t End At Appomattox

So, all this leads to this . . . my fear is that somebody somewhere will start a fire he can't put out.
Unprepared, unplanned, unorganized, unsupported, unwanted, the rising will be crushed locally,
and the result will pogroms against anyone suspected of harboring dissident ideas.  And America
will cheer the slaughter.  We don't need another Shay's Rebellion, nor another Whiskey war, nor
another Appomattox. 

The Bundy Ranch incident was heartening, after a fashion, but know that DotGov is rounding up anyone they can identify for punishment.  The Refuge seige is getting the same treatment.  Neither were Lexington or Concord, nor Manassas.  DotGov demonstrated at Waco that they will kill anyone, anytime with no reason at all.  Ruby Ridge demonstrated that they will manufacture a reason if necessary, and get away with it.

I think that we'd be better off establishing a shadow government to assume control once the whole bankster  bomb explodes.  When the federal government expires of its own weight and criminality, somebody will pick up the pieces.  Somebody better have a revenue plan ready to implement, a plan to pay the emergency services, and the troops they take under command.  A plan to secure territory and resources.  Someone will be doing that, the question is, "Who do you WANT doing that?" 

Maybe Trump can pull this rabbit out of the hat, but I doubt it.  I wish him all the best and pray for my country. But all the will in the world didn't keep 'Titanic' afloat; all the will and prayers didn't save the Confederacy. We too long ago let that wildcat out of the bag and nobody's gonna get him stuffed back in.


The Pretended Offenses of Chief Justice Roy Moore

Via Billy

In June of 2015, the U.S. Supreme court asserted the opinion that gay couples had the right to marry under the US constitution. On the heels of this opinion, last year, a federal judge ruled that same-sex marriage was legal in the state of Alabama.

Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore postulated that the US Supreme Court, and the federal judge’s ruling, was at odds with a unanimous decision by the Alabama Supreme Court which stated that marriage is between one man and one woman. Moore then issued an administrative order to state probate judges, stating they should not issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

This sparked a whirlwind for the good Chief Justice, who was suspended from his job last week and faces possible ouster after the anti-American Southern Poverty Law Centre (SPLC) filed a complaint with the Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC), which then forwarded the case to the Court of the Judiciary. What was the crime?

In the Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers used the term “pretended legislation” to describe legislation that does not square with what the Declaration refers to as the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” As a result, this legislation had no lawful authority. And though our founders were guilty of breaking many pretended laws, they referred to these offenses as “pretended offenses.”
Chief Justice Moore’s legal council recently released a statement that read:
"He did nothing wrong. The politically motivated complaints filed with the JIC have no basis in the Canons of Judicial Ethics.

Washington Will Be a Fortified City

Lemuel Burkitt (1750-1807) was a Baptist preacher and member of the 1788 Hillsborough Convention which considered the new union proposed by Alexander Hamilton. A devout anti-Federalist, he demanded a maximum of State rights and the preservation of individual liberties, and thus was highly suspicious of Hamilton’s centralization of power schemes.
Bernhard Thuersam,   The Great American Political Divide

Washington Will Be a Fortified City

“At the sessions of the courts, at county militia musters, in the taverns, wherever men gathered, the main topics of conversation [in 1787] were the Constitution and its framers. In the heat of argument no man’s character was above attack and no past political or military service could overcome party animosity. Thomas Person, a general of the Revolution and patriot of undoubted sincerity, denounced Washington as “a damned rascal and traitor to his country for putting his hand to such an infamous paper as the new Constitution.”

Willie Jones, leader of the [North Carolina] anti-federalists, found it necessary to deny in the public press that he had “called the Members of the Grand Convention, generally, and General Washington and Col. Davie, in particular, scoundrels” . . . William Lenoir of Wilkes county said later in the debates in the convention that his constituents had instructed him to oppose the adoption of the Constitution. William Lancaster of Franklin [county] said that his own feelings and his duty to his constituents induced him to oppose the adoption of the Constitution, since he believed every delegate was bound by his instructions.

Lemuel Burkitt, a Baptist preacher strongly opposed to ratification, was a [convention] candidate in Hertford county. In explaining the selection of an area ten square miles [to be] the seat of the [federal] government, Burkitt said: “This my friends, will be walled in or fortified. Here an army of fifty thousand, or perhaps, a hundred thousand men, will be finally embodied, and will sally forth, and enslave the [American] people, who will be gradually disarmed.”

[Hugh] Williamson . . . did not consider paper currency as honest tender because of its rapid depreciation. However convenient depreciated paper appeared to those who used it to discharge their debts, he contended that the credit and finances of the State had been injured by it. No part of the North Carolina debt of North Carolina had been discharged by the operations of paper money, “the whole advantage of depreciation being a mere juggle,” by which one citizen was injured for the convenience of another.”

So great were the evils of paper money that the dignity of government was wounded by declaring it legal tender, industry languished, the orphan was defrauded, and the most atrocious frauds were practiced under the sanction of the law.”

NC: Newton blasts feds’ HB2 challenge

Via Cousin John

Buck Newton

The Republican nominee for North Carolina attorney general on Monday cast the U.S. Department of Justice’s discrimination lawsuit against the state as federal overreach and social engineering in the twilight of President Barack Obama’s administration.

State Sen. Buck Newton, R-Wilson, said he stands with leaders in the Republican-controlled General Assembly committed to defending House Bill 2. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch sued the state, arguing that HB2’s restroom rules discriminate against transgender people on the basis of sex.

“This is no longer just a North Carolina issue,” Newton said. “The administration in its waning days has decided to go all-out and try to remake America.”

London’s New Mayor Warns Trump: Let In Muslims Or They Will Attack America

Via Charlie
  Kiss my ruddy, red rectum & keep your nose out of our business.

The new Muslim mayor of London has issued a warning to Donald Trump: Moderate your stance on Muslims, or they will launch more attacks against America.

Trump recently praised Sadiq Khan for winning London’s mayoral race, and said he would be willing to create an exception in his policy restricting Muslim entry into the United States in order to allow Khan to visit. But in a statement Tuesday, Khan dismissed Trump’s invitation, and also denounced his views on Islam as “ignorant,” suggesting Trump’s policies would increase the terrorist threat in both the U.S. and U.K.

Confederate Memorial Day marked with less fanfare in South Carolina

Via Billy

Confederate flags fly near a monument at Magnolia Cemetery in Charleston.

The Confederate flag no longer flies on South Carolina's Statehouse grounds, but that didn't dampen the spirits of those gathered Tuesday to commemorate the state's first Confederate Memorial Day since its removal.

Clad in the gray wool uniform of the Confederacy, with a black ribbon on his chest, Rusty Rentz of the Sons of Confederate Veterans stood guard at a monument to Confederate war dead at the front of the Statehouse complex in Columbia — the very spot where the Confederate flag was flying a year ago.

"The fact that the governor brought the flag down doesn't change the fact that some 25,000 Confederate soldiers lost their life in defense of their state, so we will continue to be here," he said.

Stuart portrait, previously removed, to be unveiled

Via Susan
Shortly after Patrick County Judge Martin Clark committed the disgraceful  act of having a portrait of Patrick County native and Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart removed from the Patrick County Courthouse, and following a swift and very vocal outcry of disgust with Judge Clark's action by her citizens,  the Patrick County Board of Supervisors voted  to display the portrait on the "Wall of Honor" on the second floor of the Patrick Veterans Memorial Building. The portrait has been restored and encased in special glass, and a new bronze plaque has been installed.

 A well-traveled portrait of Confederate Maj. Gen. J.E.B. Stuart will be unveiled and rededicated at a new home during a program Thursday in Stuart, on the 152nd anniversary of his death.

The portrait of the Civil War hero and Ararat native, for whom the Patrick County seat is named, is to be publicly displayed at the Patrick Veterans Memorial Building at 106 Rucker St. in Stuart – on a “wall of honor” in the second-floor hallway.

Thursday’s unveiling/rededication program will begin there at 10 a.m. and is to include Patrick County and town of Stuart officials along with members of the J.E.B. Stuart Birthplace Preservation Trust, based in Ararat.

Among out-of-town guests invited are Stuart family members and Wayne Jones, a Stuart impersonator and Civil War re-enactor.

Roger Hayden, the Dan River District member of the Patrick County Board of Supervisors who represents Ararat, is expected to offer special remarks, according to Tom Bishop, a spokesman for the trust group.

Others expected to speak include County Administrator Tom Rose and possibly some Stuart town officials, Bishop added Tuesday.

Jones, who will be in uniform Thursday, is a highly regarded Stuart impersonator, even including the red beard that was a trademark of the Confederate cavalry officer.

“And he’s a great speaker, too,” Bishop said.
