Chris Corley was the one  lone  member of the South Carolina legislature who was unashamedly vocal in his defense of the Confederate Battle Flag. He went above and beyond in his efforts to restore the Flag to the Statehouse and in his calling out of fellow republican legislatures and of the State's scalawag Governor. 

He even sent out Confederate Flag Christmas cards! 

And if that didn't piss off his fellow Republicans - and Oh' did it - he was also an active campaigner in his State for Donald Trump. 

Tow the line in politics, and like Bill and Hillary Clinton, you can commit dozens of murders, embezzle billions, and even commit treason, and get away with all of it! Or if you are Chris Corley, swimming against the political tide, defending Southern Heritage, and exposing the scalawags - well - you will be eliminated at any cost. 

When Rush Limbaugh had gone "too far out of line" on his radio show he was prosecuted for "Dr. Shopping." It seems there is a law against changing doctors too many times in Florida. 

To ensure that Trent Lott would secure a vote against Bill Clinton's impeachment mysterious college classmates came out of nowhere to falsely accuse him of being homosexual. 

In Chris Corley's case, he is being accused of having had an affair. When that didn't do it, a trumped up (pardon the pun) domestic battery charge was added to the mix. Now to pile on since Chris remains "unrepentant," trumped-up gun charges and child-endangerment charges. 

My guess is that depending on whether or not Chris shows an "remorse" will be the difference between say 15 years in prison or 50. 

Parading a member of the State Assembly into a courtroom full of reporters and cameras in leg irons? Come on! Were those really necessary? 

But to those members of the State government who dared cross Empress Haley on her purge of all things Southern - or for those who might have been encouraged by the strong rhetoric of their colleague - the message is clear. Tow the line! - or bed top just like Chris Corley. 

My guess is its all going to be proven "true" when Chris' wife testifies against her husband at his "trial." No doubt prosecutors have already told her exactly what her testimony is going to be. They have made it clear to her that if she fails to testify exactly as instructed that Child Protective Gestapo will trump up charges against her and she will never see her children again. 

Yes, thats how the game is played. The liberals play hardball and they don't screw around. My question is why are they targeting a member of a State Legislature who couldn't even get anyone to join him in his painfully failed crusade? Why not go after a member of the US House or Senate? Or maybe the Governor of Mississippi? Because by picking the lower target they face less opposition, the stories and accusations are less likely to be scrutinized, and the message is painfully clear to those higher up. 

Trent Lott got the message, did what he was supposed to do, and the left had made an ally out of a former enemy. The Governor of Mississippi could be a potentially bigger ally than Chris Corley ever could be. So can other southern Governors, Mayors, and Judges currently standing in the way of the purge. So Chris is their invitation - or their warning - both. 

The purge will intensify in 2017 - and there will be fewer champions for our cause!

Pray for Chris Corley!


Three Southern Heritage groups - ACTBAC from Alamance County, the Virginia Flaggers, and League of the South - are coordinating to organize an annual Confederate memorial service in Lexington, Virginia on January 14, 2017.

ACTBAC held a rally for Trump on November 8, has lobbied to prevent the construction of a planned mosque, and has held Confederate memorial rallies at UNC-Chapel Hill. They have also successfully lobbied to prevent Muslim "refugees" from being relocated to North Carolina.

The Virginia Flaggers have raised numerous flags across their State and have successfully lobbied against the removal of Confederate memorials in their State.

The League of the South is effectively raising money.

So several leftist groups uniting under the 1930's communist-sounding moniker Workers Assemble is mobilizing "Social Justice Warriors" using #fightback to mount a violent counter-protest on January 14th. The liberals plan to make the streets of Lexington flow red with the blood of decent Southern folks planning to assemble in Lexington to honor their ancestors. The obliging media and police will then blame the bloodshed on we peaceful Southrons.

If this strategy is allowed to succeed it will no doubt become the model for shutting down future heritage events. 

St. Louis plans to BURY its Confederate Heritage

On Christmas Eve last year, St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay used what is traditionally a quiet period for news to announce that he wanted a 102-year-old monument to Confederate war dead removed from Forest Park.

A year later, the statue remains in place. But city officials say they are committed to fulfilling the mayor's promise.

Slay put together a committee to study the statute's removal from Forest Park in June 2015. Since none of the local institutions that responded to the committee were willing to display the monument, the city has looked at other options, including the Wilson's Creek National Battlefield, in Republic, Missouri, just south of Springfield.

A National Park Service official wrote back that commemorative works can only be approved by an act of Congress. A City Representative said President Barack Obama could accept the monument by a proclamation, and hopes the president will act before he leaves office.

But even if the president doesn't, the statue will be out of Forest Park by the time Slay leaves office in April. The City Manager said he's found a way to cut the estimated $130,000 price tag in half - literally temporarily bury history.

"City staff, with some outside assistance, could excavate a hole near where the monument is currently situated, put timbers down in the hole, and essentially cover it up with soil," he said. "The granite would be no less worse for wear." In other words, they would just bury the monument at its present location. If the City of St. Louis succeeds at this will it fast track the "burying" of numerous other monuments by saving the need to "remove" them?


In Oak Creek, Wisconsin a person who went to the South Shore Cinema on December 20th saw something that scared them so much that they called the police.

According to the report, a 911 caller reported that a white person entered the theatre wearing a Confederate Flag hoodie. The caller wanted to report the "illegal activity" to local police.

When the dispatcher informed the caller that wearing a hoodie was not a crime the caller reported being concerned for their safety of being in the theater with someone who was wearing that flag. Then the 911 caller reportedly disconnected and the 911 operator was unable to re-establish contact with the caller. This resulted in Oak Creek Police being dispatched to the theatre.

At the theatre, Police did not locate anything suspicious. An officer ended up making contact with the caller and advised the caller that the hoodie-wearing patron was well within his rights and had freedom of speech.


Frustrated by its sudden and surprised inability to propel Hillary Clinton to the White House, the mainstream media (MSM) introduced a new term into the public lexicon: "fake news." Basically, "fake news" is anything that contradicted the sacrosanct spillages from the news and opinion desks of the MSM. But Russia and Vladimir Putin were specifically targeted by the MSM and the White House as the source of all of this "fake news." Thankfully, the vast majority of the American people no more believed that accusation than they did the MSM's hysterical predictions that the earth would tilt off its axis if Donald Trump was elected.

No matter. In the name of "national security," big-government toadies in Washington, D.C., have quietly created what in essence is "The U.S. Ministry of Propaganda." While most people are reveling in the election of the man they think will be their political and economic savior, and as they were rightly focused on the celebration of Christ's birth, President Barack Obama signed S. 2943, the "National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017" (NDAA) into law on Friday, December 23.

These defense authorization bills are the cubby holes of choice for big-government politicians to hide mammoth Police State-type projects and still convince the people back home that they believe in "limited" government. After all, it's a defense funding bill. Who can be opposed to that? Democrats and Republicans alike approve these bills with little or no opposition. But these bills almost always contain draconian legislation that EXPLODES the size and scope of government. And I mean oppressive government. This latest NDAA is no exception.

Back in March of this year, the bill that became part of the NDAA just signed by Obama was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Congressmen Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) and Ted Lieu (D-CA). The bill was called "Countering Foreign Propaganda and Disinformation Act of 2016 (H.R. 5181)." The Senate version was sponsored by Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Chris Murphy (D-CT) and called "Countering Information Warfare Act of 2016 (S. 2692)."

Of course, one must have a bogeyman to justify the passage of such a bill, and the usual red herrings were pulled out of the sack for this bill as well: Iraq, China, and especially Russia. Gee! Why does that surprise me? Again, it was Russia that the MSM blamed for all of the "fake news" during this past election.

Quoting, "Long before the 'fake news' meme became a daily topic of extensive conversation on such discredited mainstream portals as CNN and WaPo, H.R. 5181 would task the Secretary of State with coordinating the Secretary of Defense, the Director of National Intelligence, and the Broadcasting Board of Governors to 'establish a Center for Information Analysis and Response,' which will pinpoint sources of disinformation, analyze data, and--in true dystopic manner--"develop and disseminate" 'fact-based narratives' to counter effrontery propaganda.

"In short, long before 'fake news' became a major media topic, the US government was already planning its legally-backed crackdown on anything it would eventually label 'fake news.'

"Fast forward to December 8, when the 'Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act' passed in the Senate, quietly inserted inside the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Conference Report.

"And now, following Friday's Obama signing of the NDAA on Friday evening, the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act is now law."

"And so, with the likes of WaPo having already primed the general public to equate 'Russian Propaganda' with 'fake news' (despite admitting after the fact their own report was essentially 'fake'), while the US media has indoctrinated the public to assume that any information which is not in compliance with the official government narrative, or dares to criticize the establishment, is also 'fake news' and thus falls under the 'Russian propaganda' umbrella, the scene is now set for the US government to legally crack down on every media outlet that the government deems to be 'foreign propaganda.'

"Just like that, the US Ministry of Truth is officially born."

See the report here:

Folks, you and I both know that the MSM in America is the biggest disseminator of "fake news" on the planet. For all intents and purposes, the MSM is the Propaganda Ministry for the always lying government in Washington, D.C. But now with the MSM being totally discredited during this past election, the big-government sycophants in DC have created an OFFICIAL ministry of propaganda - or "truth" as some are calling it.

Can you imagine those crooks, thieves, and liars on Capitol Hill setting themselves up as the guardians and protectors of truth? Pardon me while I puke!

As of December 23, ladies and gentleman, the federal government has authority from Congress to shut down any news service, any website, or any information clearinghouse in the country that proffers what the government considers to be "propaganda." And remember, this was passed by both Republicans and Democrats.

So, kiss the First Amendment goodbye, folks, because it's G-O-N-E.

And since Russia is involved in this discussion, what happened to that Russian military plane that crashed into the Black Sea two minutes after taking off in good weather from Sochi? Yes, accidents happen, but this crash raises all kinds of red flags (no pun intended) in my mind - especially when occurring so close together with the assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey.

As I posted on my Facebook page shortly after it happened, the assassination of the Russian ambassador in Ankara has the smell of the CIA all over it.

The plane was carrying members of the Alexandrov Ensemble, widely known as the Red Army Choir. This musical group was world renowned and considered a national treasure in Russia. It was undoubtedly Russia's most prestigious musical group. Everyone on board the plane was killed. These were many of the finest musicians, singers, and dancers in Russia. They were on their way to Syria for a performance. The crash has left the group decimated and the entire country in mourning.

Is it a total coincidence that these two tragic events happened simultaneously with the verbal attacks against Vladimir Putin and the country of Russia by America's MSM, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the U.S. Congress and intelligence agencies?

Franklin Delano Roosevelt is quoted as saying, "In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."

As an example of the global peace appeal of the Alexandrov Ensemble, listen to this rendition of "God Bless America" following the attacks on 9/11:

In addition, watch these brief remarks recently delivered by President Vladimir Putin and compare them to anything you have heard come out of the mouth of any U.S. President in your lifetime.

Are the globalist neocons who control U.S. foreign policy and who are the indefatigable purveyors of American hegemony around the world trying to incite Russia into global war?

Through the years, many are said to have repeated it, but it seems the first record of it being said was by the Greek tragic dramatist Aeschylus (525 BC-456 BC): "In war, truth is the first casualty."

It would appear that the warmongers in Washington, D.C., have already laid the legal cornerstone for the next war's first casualty. And it also seems likely that Russia could be the next bogeyman they use to strike the match.

I realize the neocon and neolib warmongers in DC don't have much use for God, but the Almighty has protected the United States from ITSELF since the end of World War II. This country has fought unjust and illegal wars of aggression one after the other, and, as much as God HATES this national sin, He has not YET allowed America to succumb to the full weight of its consequences.

But I remind everyone of the sage counsel of Thomas Jefferson: "Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever."

God will NOT allow this country to continue unabated in its bloodthirsty warmongering, nation-building, regime-changing, and international-bullying ways forever. The innocent blood of millions cries out from the ground for divine justice.

I have no clue as to whether President-elect Donald Trump truly gets it. Does he remotely understand the moral imperative of just war? I have no idea. Does he have any idea of just how wicked and evil the foreign policy of the United States has been over the past three decades? Does he have any concept of the relationship between a nation and God Almighty, especially as it pertains to unjust war? I haven't a clue.

Judging by many of the people Trump has chosen to surround himself with in this new administration, I seriously doubt it. Judging by his seeming intention to want to reignite a nuclear arms race with Russia (we already have over 7,000 nuclear weapons--more than enough to blow up the entire planet; how many more do we need?), I seriously doubt it.

Donald Trump is going to have but a short window of time to prove to the world (and to Heaven) that his presidency is going to reverse the calamitous course America has been on for far too long. We will see. We will see. We will see.

But 2016 ends and 2017 begins with the government in Washington, D.C., officially creating a brand new "Ministry of Truth" (or "Ministry of Propaganda," as I call it) in which any and all speech considered "propaganda" by the government can, and most assuredly will, be shut down. Strike the match of war, ladies and gentlemen, and watch First Amendment dissent go up in smoke. As of December 23, it is the law of the land.

Is all of this a precursor to war? It probably won't take long to find out.

UDC Honors Veterans

The Gen. Edmond Winchester Rucker Chapter 2534, United Daughters of the Confederacy ("UDC") recently met for its regular December meeting and joint Christmas party with the Sons of Confederate Veterans Coffee County Rangers Camp 911.

The meeting began with the presentation of four Crosses of Military Service. The awards were presented by Donna Clark, Chapter President 2014-2016, and Laura Womack-Rowell, Chapter Recorder of Military Service Awards. UDC Crosses of Military Service are presented to descendants whose Confederate ancestor fought honorably during the War Between the States.

A World War I Cross of Military Service was presented posthumously to Private First Class Clarence Lee Culver who served in Company H, 167th Infantry Regiment, 42nd Division, United States Army. He entered the service 15 August 1917 and was killed in action 15 July 1918. He is buried in Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery, Romagne, France. The award was presented to his grandniece, Hilda Culver Allen, and grandnephew, Ronnie Culver.

A World War II Cross of Military Service was presented posthumously to Hillary Herbert Culver Sr. for his service as Seaman Painter First Class in the United States Navy. He entered service 23 October 1942 and was honorably discharged 21 March 1945; he served with the Carrier Aircraft Service Unit in the Pacific Theater. Hilda Culver Allen and Ronnie Culver received the award honoring their grandfather. Hillary Herbert Culver Jr. served as corporal in the United States Army at the 34th General Hospital. He entered service 1 February 1946 and was honorably discharged 11 October 1947. He received the Army of Occupation Metal Japan, the World War II Victory Medal and Lapel Button. The award was presented posthumously to his daughter, Hilda Culver Allen, and son, Ronnie Culver.

A World War II Cross of Military Service was presented posthumously to Albert Woodrow Culver for his service in the United States Navy. He entered service 19 November 1943 and was honorably discharged 1 August 1944 as a Seaman 1st Class. He served on the USS Chesterfield County (LST551). Citations he received were: the American Theater Campaign Medal, the European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Ribbon w/1 Star, and the Victory Ribbon. The award was presented to his niece, Hilda Culver Allen, and nephew, Ronnie Allen.

These men were descendants of their common Confederate ancestor Charles Isaac Sanders who served as a private in Company G, 63rd Regiment, (2nd Alabama reserves.) He enlisted in the Confederate service at Troy, Alabama on 16 May 1864 at the age of 16, and served until 13 May 1865. He was captured 9 April 1865 at Blakely, Alabama and taken as a prisoner of war to Ship Island, Mississippi then to Vicksburg and finally paroled 13 May 1865.

Following the Awards presentations, attendees celebrated Alabama Day. A soup and chili supper was enjoyed followed by a fun game of "Dirty Santa," as gifts were opened and passed from person to person. The night ended with a spirited rendition of "Dixie's Land" and many cheerful wishes for a "Merry Christmas."
