You are in a small space - a narrow steel tube that drips with the condensation of seawater surrounding you.

A hard wooden seat offers no comfort, and the bodies of two fellow passengers hunch close on either side of you in the darkness.

Your mind cannot dwell on these discomforts, for you are feverishly gripping a bar that turns a hand crank and working your entire body to propel yourself and seven others through the dark waters of Charleston harbor - a few feet below the surface. You are in one of the world's first submarines, and tonight you are about to make history - even if this is a mission of no return.

This claustrophobic nightmare of a journey took place aboard the H.L. Hunley, a 40-foot craft built for the Confederate Navy. It was crude and human-powered, but 153 years ago today the Hunley became the first combat submarine to sink a warship in battle.

The Hunley was innovative and dangerous, and at least two crews perished during tests - including the designer and namesake Horace L. Hunley. The necessities of war, the desperation of a lost cause and the desire to break a strangling naval blockade led to the voyage of this strange craft.

On the night of February 17, 1864, the Hunley slipped out of Charleston harbor and glided unseen below the surface toward the unsuspecting USS Housatonic, a Union warship blockading the harbor's entrance. The Hunley deployed an explosive charge that sank the Housatonic, but the submarine's first success was also its last. It never returned.

For over 100 years, the Hunley lay at the bottom of the sea until its discovery in 1995 and its raising in 1999. Amid a crowd of hundreds of onlookers, the craft was brought back to land, where it is now undergoing preservation at the Warren Lasch Conservation Center and Friends of the Hunley in Charleston.

You can see the H.L. Hunley in Charleston. An interactive museum is open to the public, and the history of the Hunley and its times are displayed and detailed archaeological efforts revealed.

You will be amazed at the detail and scientific approach that goes into recovering artifacts from beneath the sea and enjoy a historical sketch of the history surrounding this unique craft and the events it sparked.

Interactive displays bring history to life and provide a human aspect to historic events. You will enjoy, most of all, the viewing of the Hunley. A tour guide will take you to a viewing room where the submarine rests in a custom-built tank. Here, it remains submerged as part of a years-long process to remove rust and preserve the body of the craft. Visitors of all ages will enjoy the unique history of this strange craft and the efforts to preserve it.
Atlanta Rolls Up, Moves An Old Oil Painting - All 374 Feet and 12 Tons of It
In the Grant Park neighborhood in southeast Atlanta stands an auditorium that, for more than a century, has housed the massive oil painting Battle of Atlanta. Of late, the venue has become a construction site.

Piles of rubble mount and scaffolding extends high into the air - surrounding the large, cylindrical oil painting also known as the Atlanta Cyclorama. The panorama, which is longer than a football field, depicts scenes of Confederate and Union soldiers from the 1864 fall of Atlanta.

Now, following months of preparation, art and engineering meet head-on as the painting starts its trip to a new home. The move is being partially overseen by Gordon Jones of the Atlanta History Center.

"It's really not a part of the normal art conservation that you see, because this has primarily been an engineering challenge up to this point," Jones says.

The project has meant rolling up the towering, 130-year-old painting onto two 45-foot-tall scrolls, each weighing about six tons. It won't be easy.

"Both scrolls will be lifted by crane through two holes in the roof, then once outside of the building, they will be laid down flat onto flatbed trucks, and then we do the same thing to put them back into the new building," Jones explains.

That new building is at the Atlanta History Center. The nonprofit struck a deal with the city, which owns the painting, to restore and display it for the next 75 years.

Jones says it's a good move: Atlanta sheds the costs of upkeep, and the center can add historical context to a painting that long has been a symbol of Confederate heritage.

Sara Velas, president of the International Panorama Council, says panoramas once were popular entertainment - think 19th century IMAX movies. Battle of Atlanta is one of just three panoramas created in that period - along with The Battle of Gettysburg in Gettysburg, Pa., and The Panorama of Jerusalem in Ste-Anne-de-Beaupré, Quebec - that are still on display in North America.

"They did sort of fall out of favor once film was invented - so that's a huge reason why people don't really know about them so much anymore," Velas says.

She hopes efforts to restore of the Battle of Atlanta might start to change that. The history center plans to have the painting back on display next year.  


Republican gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart campaigned this week in Charlottesville, Virginia where he defended its statue of Robert E. Lee in a downtown park, only to be swarmed by dozens of protesters who shouted him down everywhere he went.

It was the harshest reception yet for the Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, who is campaigning for the GOP nomination for Governor.
campaign in Charlottesville on Saturday morning, protesters shouting "White supremacy has got to go!" drowned out his interviews and conversations.

Protesters shouted over Stewart as he gave an interview about his opposition to removing a Robert E. Lee statue from a Charlottesville Park.
Stewart took it in stride, frequently grinning and trying to chat up his detractors. In an interview, Stewart welcomed the protests and the attention they would bring, believing they would buttress his pitch as a conservative standing up to an intolerant left and "political correctness."

"I am calling them out for who they are," Stewart said. "It's really a symptom of the problem of the left and their unwillingness to listen to alternative points of view."

He recorded a Facebook Live video with Thaddeus Dionne Alexander, an African American veteran who became a conservative star online after his Facebook video railing against liberal protesters went viral.  

"They have no respect for our heritage," Stewart said over shouts in the video. "They have no respect not only to Robert E. Lee, a great American, but they have no respect for Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, George Washington or any of the other great American and Virginia heroes."
The demonstrators continued to follow Stewart, hoisting signs saying "Ban Bigots" and "No tolerance for white supremacy" over his head as they yelled at him to go back to Prince William.

Fellow Republican candidate Ed Gillespie, a political strategist whom Stewart derides as "Establishment Ed," said in a statement that he doesn't support moving statues but that such decisions are local issues. Gillespie is leading the Republican field in polling and campaign cash for the June primary.

Republican distillery owner Denver Riggleman, who, like Stewart, is running a populist campaign, also denounced the statue move and instead recommended using money that would go toward demolition to add a statue of a prominent African American.

The fourth Republican candidate for governor, State Sen. Frank Wagner (Virginia Beach), says he opposes removing the statue, calling it "political correctness run amok."

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Tom Perriello, who represented Charlottesville in Congress from 2009 to 2011, supports the statue's removal as part of creating a more inclusive environment.

Lt. Gov Ralph Northam, the Democratic front-runner in the gubernatorial contest, has said local communities should make decisions about Confederate symbols, but held up Charlottesville as a model for creating a "welcoming community."

As Stewart hopped into his Toyota Tundra to go to his next rally in Winchester, he flashed a thumbs-up sign to the handful of supporters who escorted him to the park. "This was fun," he said. 


Nearly four years after the Virginia Flaggers raised the first Memorial Battle Flag over Interstate 95 in Chester, the group that honors Confederate history has raised a new flag.

"The original pole was damaged and needed to be replaced," Flaggers spokesman Barry Isenhour said about why the flag was temporarily taken down. "While it was down, we made improvements to the site which has improved the visibility."

Over the weekend, the flag was once again raised along I-95 in Chester.

"The new, higher elevation of the site means greatly improved visibility for the 20 x 30 flag," he said. "As we worked last weekend, we were pleased that a number of folks pulled over to thank us for getting the flag back up. Thumbs up and honks of approval were heard repeatedly."

The Chester flag is one of three over Interstate 95 in Virginia.

In 2014, one was raised one in Stafford County. The next year, one was raised in Prince George.


In North Carolina, the Northern Orange County NAACP has again asked the Orange County Schools Board of Education to ban the Confederate Flag.

In a letter to the school board and Superintendent Todd Wirt, NAACP President Patricia Clayton asks to ban the Flag on school grounds, citing unnamed other districts that prohibit it on school property, clothing and other materials.

Clayton also cites the Orange County Schools' strategic plan, which she said partially states that the district believes "in learning from our history and each other."

"To the NAACP, that includes the historical context of the Confederate flag to slavery, the Confederacy, the Civil War and Jim Crow," Clayton said in her letter. "For many, the flag is a racially inflammatory symbol, which is undeniably rooted in slavery and racism. Given OCS' commitment to serve all students, the district should not allow the Confederate flag on its campuses."

Eight people spoke to the school board about the Confederate Flag on Monday night.

The board had no immediate comment as is its policy, district spokesman Seth Stephens said. The superintendent, who was out of town Tuesday, has met with people about the issue before and will likely talk with the School Board about how to respond to the latest requests, Stephens said.

Efforts to reach school board Chairman Steve Halkiotis were unsuccessful Tuesday.

The Northern Orange NAACP previously sought a ban on the Confederate Flag on student clothing. The request in 2015 came a few days after a weekend rally in Hillsborough drew 600 people in support of the Confederate flag.


After an emotional Orange County School Board meeting Tuesday night, school leaders voted to change the name of Robert E. Lee Middle School that was named in 1956.

The idea for the name change was first proposed at a meeting on Oct. 15, 2015. Since then, school officials have distributed surveys and researched potential alternative names.

On Tuesday night, School Board members went through the motions of listening to 13 people weigh in on the matter before plowing forward with the predetermined decision.

"This is my heritage. This is my history. This is what I grew up with," said a long-time Orlando resident. "Robert E. Lee was a sterling individual. his family was, and I feel like it's taking away the history of what I grew up with and it's very upsetting to me."

After listening to about an hour of public comments, the board took a vote. All but one member was in favor of changing Robert E. Lee Middle School to College Park Middle School.

"Today, I'm going to represent my constituents," said District 7 School Board member Christine Moore. "They want to stay with Lee. They felt that it was rewriting history."

Robert E. Lee Middle School's mascot is a Rebel. We asked if the mascot would change, too. School officials said it's too soon to tell.

It's also too soon to say when the name change will happen.

Gentlemen, I really didn't bother to watch the Superbowl. I know, but when you don't care about either of the teams, what's the point?

I came home from church and turned the game on seconds before half-time but immediately went to work. So I wasn't watching. I was in a different room, with the door open, the half-time show being background noise.

My wife pulled me out of my home office about 10 minutes into the 4th quarter and so I did actually have eyeballs on the last few moments of the 4th quarter and during the Sudden Death period. But I did not actually watch any of the Super Bowl Commercials until AFTER the Super Bowl. Having heard about how horrible the commercials were, I eventually watched them on you-tube.

Here's a breakdown of the 5 most blatantly un-American Superbowl commercials of 2017:

1. Coca Cola

Featured in Coca Cola's super bowl commercial of 2017, is the song "America the Beautiful," being sung in multiple languages. Again, this is just so overtly un-American and pro-globalist I'm struggling with what to say.

After all, what can be said? The entire song pictures the "beauty," of all FOREIGN cultures as children are seen playing games, young adults are dancing, it seems like a great time. Of course, they forgot to leave out the fact that most of those middle-eastern citizens vehemently hate Americans, and want us dead.

They forgot the fact that we've been at war with the Middle East for the past 16 years, but oh, no, don't worry about that! Just listen to the pretty music and watch the cool scenery of peaceful individuals loving one another!

Coca Cola is directly undermining the security of our nation by pushing this multi-cultural agenda. I'm wondering if it isn't time to stop drinking their products for good.

2. Audi

Oh, so it's 2017 and we're still pushing the wage gap myth? Despite the fact that Time Magazine and Forbes Magazine literally debunked this YEARS ago, greedy corporate whores and bitter feminazis continue to spit out this lie.

This commercial starts off with a young cute little girl in a race, up against all boys, of course her father gives a heart-wrenching speech about how women are being oppressed, again, to further this absurd oppressed vs. oppressor cultural Marxist narrative. Here's a full transcript of the video:

"What do I tell my daughter? Do I tell her that her grandpa's worth more than her grandma? That her dad's worth more than her mom? Do I tell her that, despite her education, her drive, her skills, her intelligence, she will automatically be valued as less than every man she ever meets? Or maybe, I'll be able to tell her something different."

Again, this is blatant anti-male, fourth wave college campus feminist propaganda. Makes me glad I drive a Chevy!

3. 84 Lumber

Perhaps the most blatantly anti-Trump propaganda piece of all time, this commercial features a long and arduous journey made by a single mother with her young little girl. They journey far and wide, from some South American country, for miles and miles... only to be met by the wall.

There they stand, staring at said wall, in all hopelessness they each shed their tears, and hug one another in a very emotional scene. Of course, this is nothing more than emotional propaganda meant to sway your political opinions. At the end of the commercial, the mother and her daughter push through the wall's doorway, and the scene ends with the following:

"The will to succeed is always welcome here."

Okay, so let me get this straight, two ILLEGAL immigrants come up from South America, and they're condoning this?

Again, the bleeding heart liberals will cry and complain and moan and whine about "feelings!" but the truth remains that we cannot accept illegal immigrants.

We have a system to help them come here, if they abide by said system. I'm sorry, but it's just not financially possible to continue taking on so many illegal immigrants, with zero education. They're a massive burden to the tax payers, and it needs to end. We need the wall.

And for the life of me, why would a Lumber Company, that is already on the brink of financial collapse, spend millions of dollars to produce and air a commercial that does not even sell their product?

I truly hope 84 Lumber goes bankrupt! Morally, they already are!

4. AirBnB

As beautiful piano music plays in the background, a collage of different skin colors and ethnicities are overlayed upon one another. Sentences appear, one by one, as the music plays, leaving us with a bunch of "good feels," and "muh emotions." Here is what is said in the commercial:

"We believe no matter who you are, where you're from, who you love, or who you worship, we all belong. The world is more beautiful the more you accept."

Okay, so basically they're saying that being a violent extremist who wants to throw acid on a woman's face for showing her ankles, is the same as someone who goes to Church every Sunday and donates 10% of his income to charity? Nice try, Soros.

Again, this is riddled with Leftist propaganda-obviously it would be nice if the whole world could get along, but this is CLEARLY not possible, and in fact, trying to do so is often quite dangerous. I don't know about you guys, but I'm never going to use AirBnB.

5. Mr. Clean

This commercial may not have been un-American (directly, per-se) but it definitely was intended to effect cultural subversion. 
The video shows a sexy Mr. Clean dancing and flirting with some woman, who is in complete awe over him, as Justin Timberlake's suggestive music plays in the background. Then, near the end of the commercial, "Sarah," this girl, snaps out of it. She is greeted by her beta-cuckold husband who is completely lacking in any and all masculinity.

Despite his unkempt appearance, and chubby belly, she jumps on top of him, ready to make love. The message is, be a good little boy and clean for your wife! It doesn't matter that the majority of American women don't cook or clean anymore, because you could get sex if you clean!

The commercial ends by saying: "You gotta love a man who cleans," urging feminized husbands to take up a traditionally female role. Poor guy.  

On 8 February 2017, the Kentucky State Democratic Party posted a picture on Twitter that appeared to show Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell receiving an award from the SCV while posing in front of a large Confederate flag backdrop:

The tweet followed a contentious session on the floor of the U.S. Senate on the eve of the swearing-in as U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whose nomination by President Donald Trump had been controversial from the start. 

The photograph seen here, reportedly taken in the early 1990s at a Sons of Confederate Veterans ( SCV) event, was then proffered by the Democrats as an example of Senator McConnell's seeming endorsement of the Confederate Flag. But don't get all excited and start thinking that Mitch is one of us. He's a Scalawag! 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) was among the first Senators to call for the Confederate Battle Flag to come down in public spaces. He subsequently suggested that it may be time to remove a statue of Jefferson Davis from the Kentucky state capitol, and put it in a museum.


Over sixty percent of California voters went for Hillary Clinton -- a margin of more than 4 million votes over Donald Trump.

Since Clinton's defeat, the State seems to have become unhinged over Trump's unexpected election.

"Calexit" supporters brag that they will have enough signatures to qualify for a ballot measure calling for California's secession from the United States.

Some California officials have talked of the state not remitting its legally obligated tax dollars to the federal government. They talk of expanding its sanctuary cities into an entire sanctuary state that would nullify federal immigration law.

Californians also now talk about the value of the old Confederate idea of "states' rights." They whine that their state gives far too much revenue to Washington and gets too little back.

Residents boast about how their cool culture has little in common with the rest of the country. Some Californians claim the State could easily go it alone, divorced from the United States.

Sound a bit familiar?

In December 1860, South Carolina seceded from the Union in furor over the election of Abraham Lincoln.

Lincoln received an even lower percentage of the popular vote than did Donald Trump. He espoused values the state insisted did not reflect its own.

In eerie irony, liberal California is now mirror-imaging the arguments of South Carolina and other Southern states that vowed to go it alone in 1860 and 1861.

Like California, South Carolina insisted it could nullify federal laws within its state borders.

Like California, South Carolina promised to withhold federal revenues.

Like California, South Carolina and other Confederate states bragged that their unique economies did not need the Union.

The South boasted that "King Cotton" had created the wealthiest class in the United States. Silicon Valley now often assumes that Google, Facebook, Apple and others are near-trillion-dollar companies that are a world unto their own.

Also, the Southern elite demanded unfettered free trade. It offered bitter resistance to Northern protectionism.

South Carolina elites were opposed to federal infrastructure projects such as the building of roads, canals, bridges and reservoirs, and other such unwelcome "progress."

Southern aristocrats believed that they were culturally superior -- they were. I only mention it because we all know that Californians, especially in Hollywood, believe themselves to be culturally superior and don't mind telling us 24/7.

Of course, this is 2017, not 1860, and California is super-liberal, not an antebellum Christian society.

Nonetheless, what is driving California's current efforts to nullify federal law and the state's vows to secede from the U.S. are too similar to those of the antebellum South not to point it out.

And like Georgia of old, California hosts the largest numbers of impoverished and the greatest number of rich people of any state in the country. Unlike Georgia of old, California has welcomed in nearly a quarter of the nation's undocumented immigrants.

California has more residents living in poverty than any other state. It is home to one third of all the nation's welfare recipients.

The income of California's wealthy seems to make them immune from reality. The poor look to welfare. While, over the last 30 years, California's middle classes have increasingly fled the State.

The California elite, being as they are rabid environmentalists, opposes internal improvements and sues to stop pipelines, aqueducts, reservoirs, freeways and affordable housing for the coastal poor.

California's public schools remain among the nation's poorest. Private academies are booming for the privileged.

California, for all its braggadocio, will likely find out, just as the antebellum South did, they cannot not leave the U.S. But as far as I'm concerned, California is NOT worth fighting another "Civil War" over. Its not even worth a 2-minute "Civil Skirmish." I hoe they do leave and I hope the Federal government lets them go. We can then extend the border wall a another thousand miles to keep them out for good and forever. Make the new Californian nation the 8th country of the travel ban. Put them at the top of the list.

California's updated versions of the Old Confederacy's secession and nullification is still quite an irony given California's self-righteous liberal preening.

Many of the arguments being used by secessionists in California are coming straight out of a book written by George Bassett in 1861 titled: A Northern Plea for the Right of Secession

Last week's publication of The Fable of the Ducks and Geese generated a LOT of response. One of our readers submitted this animated version of the tale:


Best Trump description:

Trump at heart is a creative, aggressive salesman who sees little value in restraining the message he delivers. Sometimes he plays the role of carnival barker, sometimes attack dog. Either way, he'd rather be forceful than accurate. Yet one of his pet boasts is also a true assessment of his unlikely political rise: Donald Trump will be a president like you've never seen before.

Trump comes to the White House with no previous experience in government, military or national security affairs. He ran on the Republican ticket but values his own business judgment above party particulars. He is bombastic, intemperate, vain, mercurial and hyperbolic. He is also savvy, confident and instinctual. For millions of Americans, he embodies liberation from a suffocating era of insider governance. To these optimistic voters, his presidency brims with possibility.

Trump was all of this on the campaign trail, plus boorish and foul-mouthed. He was also entertaining, enervating, combative and, to some, inspiring. Do not expect him to change once he is president. 

One of our readers in Maryland reports:

Back in July you reported that an 11,000-pound statue of a Confederate Soldier was vandalized in Rockville, Maryland. "Black Lives Matter" and other phrases were graffitied onto the statue, which prompted city officials to keep the statue boxed up in front of the court house as it remains today.

Now the City of Rockville has announced  that the statue will soon be relocated from the front of the Red Brick Courthouse to an undisclosed location in Montgomery County. General Services Director David Dise said a request for proposals to move the monument will be advertised in the next two weeks.

Our friend and regular contributor, Al Benson, submits the following MUST-READ piece on 
Gyorgy Schwartz and why you should be concerned  about him:

Let's look at some real history. The character herein to be described is not an actor, in the Hollywood sense, (except that he fits in with Hollywood's phony-baloney dudes). He's got more money than most of them have, but, like them, he seems to envision himself as the "conscience of the world." Here is a man who openly admits he has no belief in God, is not religious in any sense, yet he seems to feel he has the right to tell the rest of the world how they should live (preferably in ways that will make him and his friends lots of money). He doesn't even travel under his original name anymore.

The sterling individual we are referring to is Gyorgy Schwartz and he was born in Hungary in 1930.

According to an article on http://www.nowtheendbegins.com written by Geoffrey Grider on November 15, 2016, Gyorgy was Hungarian born and "His father, Tivador, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity. The Schwartz's were non-practicing Jews, changed their family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the Gentile population as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s." Gyorgy (now George) has an interesting background, some of which he sometimes neglects to mention.

According to an article by William Jasper on http://www.thenewamerican.com for January 4, 2017: "...Soros neglects to mention some very important facts in his biological reflection, such as that he helped Hitler and the Nazis confiscate the wealth and belongings of his fellow Jews. What's more, he feels no guilt, regret, or remorse about being a Holocaust helper, because, as he put it, if he hadn't done it 'someone else would be taking it away anyhow.' However, he undoubtedly regrets being so candid about all of this during an interview with the CBS 60 Minutes program back in 1998. He must have realized afterward how ghoulishly cold-blooded and inhuman his words and demeanor appeared, and how violently that clashed with the philanthropic humanitarian image he was crafting for himself. For some reason the CBS video of the program disappeared, and that disappearance has been the subject of much speculation concerning possible legal threats and/or financial inducements by Soros to keep the damning footage buried."

However, somehow, the old video has been popping up on You Tube videos recently. We watched one just today before we started working on this article. CBS has supposedly been trying to take all of these down, due to copyright challenges, but as fast as they get it down one place it turns up somewhere else. Inquiring minds really do want to know. This all gives George a rather bad name and the mainstream media has really been trying to tamp it down. Seems they have not been totally successful.

If you don't see what's happening "World Wide" and being aided by America's "Prostitute Press" (out and out liars to us from many aspects, then you have been "suckered, schmoozed, and simply taken in by our Presstitute Pimps, who learned their journalism in elite "Ivy-League" institutions of High-Jacked learning. And many of the professors who taught them (and who are supposed to be educators) turn out instead to be indoctrinators of Marxism (meaning anything subversive to a republican form of government. History seems to be no barrier to their (especially Soros') intention, which is the creation of some sort of New World Order that destroys any and everything upon which this country is founded and grounded upon - especially if it is Biblically based. If we continue to allow these influences to persist without exposing them, then, at best, we have bought into their warped belief system.

The current wave of internal terror now being demonstrated and expressed in the United States is fully intended to destroy our faith, way of life, culture, and our civilization.

If you are naive enough to think Black Lives Matter (Black Live Marxists) or any of these other groups have civilized intentions in what they are doing, then you have not been paying attention. They have not convinced we truly "civil" Americans that these groups have displayed anything more than UN-civilized behavior. Polite and courteous is NOT their intent. Helping bring down the government and our way of life is. These people are RUDE, CRUDE, AND SOCIALLY UNACCEPTABLE both in word and deed and many of them are actually being paid to work at cultural destruction. One might well ask the questions:

How many of these groups does George Soros fund?

How many has he funded?

How much has he spent doing this?

They are being paid, (by Soros and others) to destroy, disrupt, and devastate. And who even knows how to contact them in order to employ their "talents" better than those who are part of the Community Organizer community? We had one of that type as president recently. Remember him???

Do you think these paid thugs are picked randomly? If so, then you have your head in the sand.


One of our readers in South Carolina sent me some Federal Laws and asked why we did not use them in our heritage battles. Her original eMail is not as pertinent as our subsequent dialog. Below is my initial reply to her first contact:

On Friday, February 10, 2017 9:10 AM, Dixie Heritage <director@dixieheritage.net> wrote:

I know the law that you are talking about and lawyers who are more adept at this then I would be have used it in court attempting to prevent of the removal of monuments. The problem is, and what you have to keep in mind, is that these judges themselves are liberal and they are  lawless.

The judges, the courts the city administrators, the mayors, the city council's etc. etc. simply do not care about the law. Just like the 9th Circus out in San Francisco and this black-robed dictator out in Washington State who would presume to strike down an executive order of the president compromising the national security of the entire country despite the fact that the law is clearly on the side of the President in this matter.

Same problem just a different illustration. The law is a relevant to the people we are dealing with because they simply do not care about the law. They are lawless. They are a law to themselves

Thank you for writing.

John Merlin Submits the following on the President's Executive Order:
The wording of the Constitution and the Federal Law (US Code) is crystal clear.  
President Trump's immigration action is not even reviewable by a federal court, let alone subject to the judiciary or whatever opinion it may hold. This is an unwarranted and illegal intrusion and a presumption of one branch of government into the affairs of another. 
(f) Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by President
Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate. 
Whenever the Attorney General finds that a commercial airline has failed to comply with regulations of the Attorney General relating to requirements of airlines for the detection of fraudulent documents used by passengers traveling to the United States (including the training of personnel in such detection), the Attorney General may suspend the entry of some or all aliens transported to the United States by such airline.
Now how hard is that to understand?
Even a poor high school student would unambiguously understand this; but not simple and clear enough for liberal judges and in view of that, they have now made a mockery of their own privileged position in our society.
This is now a full blown constitutional crisis upon which may hinge whether this nation continues as a nation of laws or we devolve into a lawless nation of whims.  
My advice to my liberal friends, be very very careful of what you wish for. 

As the lamestream media focuses entirely upon President Donald Trump's rapid pace of action and stupid things like the fact that Kelly Ann Conway likes to shop online for Ivanka Trump's fashion clothing, real news is going unreported in Europe and in India. These are important because these are the precursor to the SAME occurring in these united States. The US is seldom more than 10 years behind Europe legislatively, morally, etc.

And the press in Europe is likewise distracting our neighbors across the pond so that they too seem unaware that the European Commission has quietly launched the next offensive in the EU/US war on cash. Unelected bureaucrats have boldly asserted their intention to crack down on paper transactions across the E.U. and solidify a trend that has been gaining momentum fin recent years.

The election of Donald Trump and Brexit has incentivized governments throughout Europe to seize further control over their citizens wealth and banking.

France and Spain had already criminalized high denomination cash transactions. Now the Commission has unilaterally established new regulations that will affect the entire Union.

The European Action Plan doesn't yet mention a specific dollar amount for restrictions (They are waiting the public outcry - this is a testing of the waters so to speak), but as expected, their stated "reasoning" for the move is to thwart money laundering and the financing of terrorism.

Border checks between countries have already been bolstered to help implement these new standards on hard assets. Although these end goals are plausible, there are other clear motivations for governments to target paper money that aren't as noble.

With less physical currency circulating, the people's wealth is under centralized control. This will allow the government to play a game where funds can be shifted at their will to conceal any underlying problems in the economy. But the longer this shell game is allowed to persist, the more painful it will be when reality overrides the manipulation.

Since former Chief Economist at the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Kenneth Rogoff, published a paper last year advocating for the U.S. $100 bill to be removed, governments around the world have pushed forward their agendas towards a cashless society.

While the $100 bill has not yet been outlawed in our country, the 500 euro note has been discontinued as have all large denomination bills in India.

The incremental steps currently being taken may look trivial in isolation, but the ultimate end is to lay the foundation for an entire network for economic repression.

The German people have placed themselves in strong opposition to the action and previously pushed back hard against domestic legislation that would have elimited cash. Nearly 80% of all transactions in Germany are made with paper currency, putting Europe's economic engine in direct conflict with the vision coming out of Brussels.

The spillover effect has affected new forms of investment, like Bitcoin, which witnessed an astronomical rise over the last few months and has been brought back into the discussion as a viable alternative to fiat currencies. Of course, the E.U. Commission is also attempting to impose similar limitations on crypto-currencies to make sure no transactions fall outside of their domain. The ECB and BOJ are working towards a trojan horse blockchain network that will serve only to entrap those naive enough to trust it.

Since the public's attention has been drawn to emotional manipulations and political stunts, the threat the war on cash represents has gone unrecognized. Instead of feeding energy into systems meant to divide and conquer, individuals must educate themselves to secure their own financial futures. By submitting to the hive mind and following the media down whichever rabbit hole they choose, the most important issues of today will go unnoticed. The value of advocating for decentralized and physical alternatives to the banking system may not be easily grasped by the activists of today, but few other things have the potential to erode freedom on such a massive scale.
