Deep Space Mission

It is Wednesday 22 February 2017; the Confederate States of America has been liberated from occupation and subjugation for three years, the Confederates States Government having since been seated. The Second President is now half way through his constitutional six-year term! The holidays and heroes celebrated by the people are finally those of the Confederacy, and among the official holidays is 22 February, the date in which our First President Jefferson Davis was sworn into office in 1862, thus activating our constitution.
.
However, while the citizenry celebrated the anniversary of when we switched from an interim to a permanent Confederate States Constitution, a group of men, representing a wide spectrum of industrialist, were meeting at Houston Texas. There purpose, build the most astounding flying machine ever created upon this earth, a machine which will one day send man on a mission into deep space. Join with us, as plans are being laid, to launch the Blood Stained Banner of the Confederacy, on a Deep Space Mission!

“While flying in his private airplane near Mount Rainier en route from Chehalis, Washington, to his home in Boise, Idaho, Kenneth Arnold was startled by a bright light shortly before 3 p.m., on June 24, 1947. He looked north and saw nine gleaming objects racing southward along the crest of the Cascades. They were roughly circular in form — except for one crescent-shaped object — measured about 50 feet across, and appeared metallic. He watched them for approximately two minutes until they disappeared over Oregon.”
.

.
The liberation of the Confederacy had come about for a number of reasons; certainly one could not ignore the rise of a single strong and determined
Confederate National Leader
, who had rallied the masses in favor of the Confederate Cause.  The man who had also sparked the greatest Christian Revivals since the death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ!  The old Yankee Empire had in effect, become the world’s policemen, and at home a nanny and an entitlement nation, so much so it finally bankrupted itself, morally, financially as well as economically, politically, financially and spiritually.  However to those observant few who could read the self-evident signs, the process was already in play long before any of us were born.  Those who were involved in the Confederate Cause, knew the end was near, when the liberal rich began transferring their fortunes overseas.
.

Finally the day came when the rats themselves began abandoning ship, when those who had long perpetuated the Yankee national suicide, themselves had scattered like feathers in a hurricane.  The empire became only a shell of its former self, until the bureaucracy left it helpless against the growing numbers, as well as the political, economic and financial might of the Confederate Cause.  Once the first State had broke away, the others followed quickly suit, the dominos began falling and nothing could revive the suicidal giant.  The 13 member States of the Confederacy, as well as the territories, now States of Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma, quickly reorganized themselves.
.
When all were counted, 27 States had left the Union, many of which would side with the Confederacy, more of the States followed for their own security then for supporting the Confederate Cause.  Thus the Confederate States of America was reborn!  The numerous Black Projects and Secret bases quickly collapsed, since they no longer was able to feed from the federal trough, like pigs, suckling from the momma sow.  These bases now reverted back to State jurisdiction, some put them to use in behalf of the expanding the Confederate States as well as State Armed Forces.  However behind the scenes, a group consisting of the finest minds in science, business and finance were assembled at Houston Texas.

.
The meeting took place at the old NASA Control Center, in a side conference room, NASA having since shut down, along with the collapse of the empire.  There were 5 men and 3 women present, all of them top professionals in their own field; these were the very best leaders of industry and science, many of them frustrated by the roadblocks having been place in their way, by the old Yankee Federal Bureaucracy.  Among those present that day was Dr. Jacob Goldstein, the founder of the organization known as ‘Space Research Foundation’ {SRF}.  Among their members was Dr. Albert Houser who was unknown outside of the now dissolved Yankee Black Projects, and finally Vice President of the Confederacy Joseph Walden
.
.
On the financial side was the not so publicly known
Miss Teresa Tallmadge
who, as the empire’s collapse grew imminent, managed to organize a behind the scenes consortium of business and financial interests.  As a result when the economic collapse of the empire came, numerous banks, businesses as well as individuals were spared bankruptcy.  This made it possible for the Confederacy to quickly build a sound and stable economy!  It was Dr. Goldstein more then anyone else who pushed for experiments in extra-ordinary technology.  The good Doctor, now standing at one end, looked about at those gathered around this ornate oval shaped table.

.
’Ladies and gentlemen, colleagues, we have all lived through the fall of an empire and the rebirth of a nation, we therefore aught to learn from the mistakes made by those who once occupied and subjugated our homeland.  The Confederacy must stand upon solid financial ground, which means a gold and silver based monetary system.  We must forbid the formation of an overbearing bureaucracy, which would smother incentive, restrain our unalienable rights and destroy the very foundations of the Confederacy.  Additionally we must correct the inadequacies faced by our forefathers of the War of Northern Aggression, inasmuch as they were overwhelmed by superior numbers and firepower.
.
Doctor Goldstein paused, which allowed Miss Tallmadge to inject her own thoughts, ‘Doctor, it is obvious that you have something in mind, dare I use the term radical plan; what exactly is your strategy?’  Vice President Walden looked about then stood to his feet, ‘I hope you aren’t going to suggest Confederate Government involvement; we’ve had enough government involvement in business?  The Vice President paced a bit then returned to his seat!  Dr. Albert Houser had remained silent until now, ‘ladies, gentlemen, allow me, if I might, to explain what my dear friend Doctor Jacob Goldstein as well as myself have in mind.
.

If the Confederacy is to survive in a world growing ever more hostile by the day, we must hold the superior technological advantage, we cannot defend our people with present day weaponry alone, we must leap ahead.  Our plan is to begin with a demonstration, a mission if you will, that of building a space craft, which can lift off the runway vertically, travel into deep space, then return and land in like manner.  And our space craft must do so without rockets or jet engines, but rather a new type of propulsion.’  Miss Teresa Tallmadge was of an age that she grew up during a time when science fiction dominated the entertainment industry, at what had been said, her face suddenly lit up like a light bulb.

.
Everyone around the table paused, including Doctor Houser himself, perhaps so as to absorb what had just been said, and to prepare for what was yet to come!  Miss Tallmadge glanced down at a scratch pad before her, whereupon she had attempted to put into a picture form, what Doctor Houser was saying, but all she could come up with was, well, no, it can’ be, she though to herself.  ‘Doctors Goldstein and Houser, you gentlemen and your colleagues hold the advantage, as related to knowledge of science and technology, but what I am hearing sounds to me like a factious flying saucer story.  Are you two proposing to transfer flying saucers from science fiction into the real world in which we live?’
.
Doctor Goldstein now had a most serious look on his face, and began to address the Space Research Foundation!  ‘Let me put this in practical terms!  It is our full intention to assure that henceforth, should Abraham Lincoln’s Union Forces, or any other entity, attempt to wreak havoc and destruction upon our homeland, as did
General William Tecumseh Sherman
and his war criminals, they shall return home to ashes.  In order to achieve these ends, we must in fact make the commonly known factional ‘Flying Saucer’ a reality.  As such our mission will include moving beyond the technology of rockets and jet engines!  This will mean an enormous leap forward, and this is the process in which we must engage!’

.
Doctor Jacob Goldstein stood to his feet; he was followed by Dr. Albert Houser, afterward the Vice President of the Confederacy Joseph Walden, then finally the other five members of the ‘Foundation’ until all were standing in their place at the table.  The second lady, an industrial genius and mem
bers the Foundation Board, a
Miss Irene Zimmerman, the C.E.O. of Alloyed Fabrics, held up a glass of tea.  ‘My fellow Board Members, ladies and gentlemen, she said, are we then in full agreement, shall we not build a true scientific wonder, and take on the Deep Space Mission?’  With that the other seven members of the Foundation Board lifted their glasses with a shout, here, here!
.          

.

The old NASA site formerly known as Cape Kennedy had since reverted back to the State of Florida, who quickly restored the former name of ‘Cape Canaveral’, and had since leased the facility to Doctor Jacob Goldstein and the Space Research Foundation.  The Lockheed Skunk Works, which had been responsible for so many of the Black Projects for the Yankee Empire, had long since broken its ties.   And it managed to change its name to the less ominous name, Lockheed Space Works!  The was this team which gathered one months later at Cape Canaveral for an update on progress made by Doctor Goldstein and his team.

.
It was Saturday 25 March 2017 as Doctor Albert Houser lead the team into the main hanger, a hanger sizeable enough to hold the largest of air and space vehicles.  Advances in Holographic Technology allowed the Space Team to project a precise image of the Flying Saucer that was to be their project.  As the team entered the hanger, many of those who were not on the Board, but were critical to the success, stood in awe.  Before them was their Deep Space Vehicle, it was circular, and its diameter was so huge it filled all the available space in the hanger.  The wingspan of a B-52
Bomber was 185 feet, but this vehicle obviously dwarfed the Stratofortress
!
.
The third lady on the Space Research Foundation, a Miss Erica Stanford and a gentleman by the name of Adrian Hensley stepped forward, ever closer and began to walk about the craft, ‘This is the most fantastic thing I’ve ever seen, explained Miss Stanford.’  Adrian Hensley who was walking close to Miss Stanford turned about to face Doctor Houser, ‘Doctor, can we truly build such a craft?  Is it possible?’  Doctor Houser paused and smiled, ‘In science my friend, what is possible are those things for which we are prepared to do the research and labor, and make happen.  The craft before them gleamed like nothing they’d ever seen, if it is built, it might very well surpass even our wildest dreams!
.

Doctor Jacob Goldstein stopped just ahead of the group, as they all assembled around him!  ‘We can and we must build this craft, but believe me when I say, there is much work to be done before it lifts off the ground, headed for deep space.  We must create what has never been heretofore possible, an anti-gravity device, and the metal use to build the craft must be such that it will withstand pressure, the likes of which no man made machine has been subject.’  By what name shall this Space Craft be known, asked Miss Irene Zimmerman?  Doctors Goldstein and Houser looked at each other, then Doctor Goldstein Responded, ‘it shall be known as the C.S.S. Stonewall, after General Jackson.’
.

Finally the work began, but as the project progressed rumors spread throughout the Confederacy, no doubt fostered by the lockdown at the Cape Canaveral Space Center.  So the various parts of the craft would be researched and manufactured at various locations, and shipped to the site, most of which could be camouflaged during the journey.  However the outer shell, both top and bottom had to be molded in two separate but whole peaces, fortunately even these could be shielded from public view.  These parts would be constructed in Texas, and carried by choppers to Galveston, where they’d be loaded aboard ship and transported around the tip of Florida to Cape Canaveral.
.
Shortly UFO’s sightings were reported over the skies of Cape Canaveral, Miami down to ‘Homestead’ and across to Tampa, Saint Petersburg in Florida, which was explained away as active imaginations, natural phenomena or mistaken identity.  In one sighting there were three Saucers, in another seven flew in a ‘V’ formation.  In every case the Saucers made maneuvers impossible for any man made craft, plus the brightness of these objects made it obvious they were not stealth, or at the very least, being spotted was not their concern.  A crowd of approximately 150 people outside ‘Homestead’ claimed they were oval in shape, were spinning and displayed bright occultation lights on their outer edge.
.
In west central Florida a so-called ‘Ufologist’ named Steven Ulrich followed the track where sightings were reported, and found him-self at a farm owned by Mr. Leon Richardson.  He spoke to Leon as to what he had seen and took recorded his statement, ‘three of them descended to treetop level, stopping in place.  The objects were bright but not like the sun shinning off of a metallic surface, but more like they were being lit up by some form of power, and were pulsating, intensely brilliant to the eye.  The object appeared to be spinning at a high rate of speed, and they had a flat surface on their outer edge, with lights that seemed to pulsate around the disc, and doing so in a rhythmic pattern.’
.

The ‘S.R.F. realized under our Constitution, the Confederate States Government could not finance or involve itself with business, so this was a purely private project, still, they did help by attempting, where possible, to divert the people’s attention.  However the day finally came for the unveiling, it was Sunday 22 February 2026, 9 years after the project began, as a conference in Houston Texas.  It had been 164 years since Jefferson Davis took the Oath of Office, thereby activating the Confederate States Constitution.  It was a national holiday and the streets were filled with parades, the parks filled, picnics and barbeques abounded across the land!
.
If President Calvin Cal Curry knew of the project he certainly did not show his hand, and Vice President Joseph Walden had been completely silent on the issue.  However the Secretary of War Omar Ulrich had to be notified that a strange craft would soon show itself over the skies of the Confederacy, but not to fret, it was our own.  The Virginia Military Institute {V.M.I.} had been closed at the time of the liberation, and later reopened as an institution, which trains and educates an entirely new generation of Officers for our Confederate Armed Forces.  The decision was made by the Space Research Foundation to make the premier showing of the C.S.S. Stonewall at the Virginia Military Institute.
.
Whatever the reasons, Secretary of War Omar Ulrich had convinced President Cal Curry, it was urgent that he attend a presentation, scheduled to take place at the V.M.I., for a demonstration related directly to our national defense.  A military chopper was dispatched for the two men, so as to make the trip to the Military Institute.  It was a Sunday, and a holiday, a special day serving to commemorate not only the inauguration of our First president, but also the activation of the Confederate States Constitution.  It was thought best not to restrict civilians from attending the scheduled celebrations at the V.M.I., besides what better witnesses to the military prowess of the Confederate States Armed Forces.
.
The scheduled time of the event had arrived, it was 9:00 A.M. and on the parade field of the Institute, the cadets were in formation and ready!  For the sake of security, the President, Vice President, Secretary of War and Secretary of State, all arrived in three separate and unmarked limousines, via unannounced routes.  The limousines were provided compliments of a local limousine service, inasmuch as the Confederate Government lacks the opulence of the old Yankee Imperial Bureaucracy.  As the limousines converged and rounded the corner of the building, they pulled up in front of the ranks of cadets and dignitaries, who gave the proper response as their Commander and Chief exited the vehicle.
.
The President and other officials greeted the Superintendent, Colonel John Leland and the Chief of Staff, General Jacob Winston, then shook hands with a number of people, after which he took his place at a center space set aside for him, awaiting for what was to him, an uncertain event.  The President quietly questioned as to why he was called here on such short notice, what was so important?  He obviously did not know what Vice President Joseph Walden, Secretary of War Omar Ulrich, and the officers and Board of the Space Research Foundation knew.  Unknown to the cadets and civilians present, they were about to discover that on this day, fiction and reality was about to collide head on.
.
In the press, even with the fall of the empire, those who seriously claimed to have seen a ‘U.F.O.’ was thought to be subject to delusions, or perhaps even a wee bit off, mentally.  Such a person was more often then not scorned, and kept at a safe distance from decision making!  The crowd began to look skyward, wondering what they were expected to see.  Suddenly, and seemingly out of no-where, three shinny circular objects in a triangular formation dropped down from a high altitude!  These craft made a series of 90-degree turns that would not only have kill a human beings, where they onboard, but crush an aircraft in flight.  Yet, there they were, just as U.F.O. spotters had so often claimed!
.
Suddenly the forward U.F.O. broke away from the others and dropped directly downward, halting nearly instantly at about 300 feet above the parade ground.  The President turned to his Secretary of War, who was standing to his right, ‘Omar, what do you make of this, are we seeing what I think we are seeing?’  Omar Ulrich smiled, ‘Mr. President, I believe all of your questions are about to be answered, I suggest we watch and see!’  The object positioned directly above looked to be spinning at a high velocity; it was obviously made of some type of exceedingly bright metallic substance, and appeared flat around its outer edge, and it pulsated with brilliant lighting.
.
General Winston, stood to the Presidents left gazing upward at the object, ‘Mr. President he shouted, its going to land, whatever this thing is, it is about to land, I’ve never seen the likes of it before.’  The disc shaped object slowly dropped from 300 feet to about 100, then 50 feet off the ground, finally a series of about a five large round pillar shaped objects, was lowered from the bottom of the craft, which was like unto hydraulic legs.  Then just as quickly the craft landed and stood on the ground, the craft now stand upon the three legs, which had been lowered from the bottom, for a moment it stood in position, kept spinning and glowing with its brilliant edge lights.
.
Everyone in attendance stood gazing at the disc shaped craft, wondering what would happen next!  The mass media became quite active, among them the Dixie News Network {DNN}, which rushed about in an attempt to find itself in the best location, so as to take advantage of whatever was about to happen.  Even as they all stood gazing at the object in amazement, the story was being broadcast across the width and breadth of the Confederacy, and even bounced off of satellites to the entire world, ‘U.F.O. - Flying Saucer’ spotted over the skies of Virginia’.  After what seemed like hours, but was actually only a short few minutes, a ramp was lowered from under the craft!
.

.

The silence about the parade grounds was almost deafening, as everyone stared at the ramp extending from the bottom of the Flying Saucer!  Finally somebody began exiting the Saucer, at first four men, two each stood at attention at the left and right side of the ramp.  They all wore well-tailored Confederate Navy Uniforms, then down the ramp came two officers, a Navy Captain and a Commander!  Both men slowly approached President Calvin Cal Curry and saluted, ‘Mr. President, Captain David Baumann at your service, sir.  I hereby present to you the latest addition to our nations defenses!  The President returned the Captain and Commander’s salute, as he asked of the Captain!
.

Captain, is this craft everything it appears to be or is this a very well staged performance?  I assure you Mr. President, responded Captain Baumann, this craft is everything it appears to be and more.  Your Security Guards are armed; have them fire on the craft!  The President look about, then back at the Captain, ‘all right Captain, as you wish, we shall soon know as to what type of craft has landed here at the V.M.I.  The President directed that everyone stand back.  Shortly after the order was given, his guards prepared to open fire!  A Security Team numbering approximately 30 men, opened up with automatic rifle fire, but to no avail, the shells would not penetrate the crafts invisible shield.
.

Captain, tell the President how many of these craft are in your fleet, directed Chief of Staff, General Jacob Winston!  Mr. President, replied the Captain, there is seven such craft in what we refer to as the Confederate Joint Fleet.  Mr. President, General Winston, these craft are more then capable of defending the Confederacy, and they are also designed for travel in deep space.  The scientists of the Space Research Foundation have worked on their systems, which went into creating these craft, beginning long before the fall of the empire.  But quite frankly sir, progress was held back due to the reluctance their black projects to take a chance!

.
Vice President Joseph Walden who had remained silent until now spoke up, ‘Captain Baumann, perhaps the President as well as General Winston would like to tour the Confederacy’s new flagship.  Commander Walter McCabe, the Executive Officer, who had also been silent wanted to join in extending an invitation to their Commander in Chief.  Mr. President, please do join us onboard!  President Curry nodded his head in the affirmative, as the President, and Chief of Staff followed the Captain and crew of the C.S.S. Stonewall, as they boarded the most unusually vehicle ever constructed.  The Vice President remained behind, so both he and the President would not be onboard together!
.
As they approached so as to climb the ramp leading into the craft, the four guards saluted, and then fell in line as the last of the President’s entourage passed them by.  Once the President climbed the stairs, he entered into a totally different world, a world where the impossible had somehow become possible.  A highly advanced world where the lines between science fiction and reality had been, if not erased, then most certainly diminished.  Those present that day watched, as the C.S.S. Stonewall slowly arose from the ground to a distance of approximately 200 feet, then suddenly it sped off at a sharp 90-degree right angle.
.
While the actual existence of Flying Saucers was no longer a secret, the story having been covered by the news media, still, a majority of the world’s population chose to believe they were Aliens from another world.  The Confederacy’s seven new ships of the Combined Fleet flew over Paris and Berlin, afterward Moscow and China, then onward to Tokyo.  In a few places the world’s top guns fired upon the fleet, but none of them were any more effective then it would be had they used rubber bullets.  However, knowing the firepower these Flying Saucers placed in the hands of Confederates, President Cal Curry had no desire to prove their military prowess to a skeptical world.
.

A Journalist named Walt Winslow of the Dixie New Network was present several days later when the C.S.S. Stonewall returned to V.M.I., this time only a sparse few people were on hand when the President and his Chief of Staff exited the craft.  As the men moved away to a safe distance, the craft slowly arose again from the ground, to a height of about 1000 feet, then quite literally speed away so fast it disappeared.  Winston approached the President, ‘Mr. President we’ve all born witness to an amazing leap in technology.  This craft is obviously capable of travel into deep space, what are your plans for these new weapons?
.
President Curry looked directly at Winslow, ‘What did you see Mr. Winslow, all across the world, reports are coming in of people seeing UFOs, Flying Saucers if you will, so just what did you see?’  Winslow glanced at the President, ‘did we not all bear witness to a Flying Saucer landing on this very field, both military members as well as civilians have seen these things.  ‘Did they Mr. Winslow, the civilians were all hand picked, the military is sworn to silence on the issue, and the general population believes these sightings are nothing more then just another UFO story.  You yourself were chosen, believing you would be discrete in reporting the story, I have every confidence you will do so now!
.

Mr. Winslow felt like the President was holding back, and he wanted to know more, ‘Mr. President, surely you are not planning to use these craft strictly as a defensive weapon, what is their true purpose?’  The President had turned to walk away, then paused, looked back at the Journalist, ‘alright Mr. Winslow, you were ask to be discrete and play this story low key, and so you have.  You deserve to know more, ‘we are at this very moment planning a ‘Deep Space Mission’ to Mars and eventually to the stars if possible.  However we cannot effectively carry out an exploration of space, if it requires years or generations to get from here to there.
.
Therefore, we must first gain a clearer understanding of such things as wormholes, bent space and the effects of warp speed!’  Winslow stood silent, he was stunned at what he had just heard; somehow all this was beginning to sound like ‘Star Track’ the television series.  The President turned once again to walk away, ‘if all this is beginning to sound a little far fetched to you Mr. Winslow, you are in good company.  You are quite correct in your assumption; these craft were not created merely for national defense, though this is their primary function.  The Combined Fleet is the fist generation of true Space Craft, and the colors, which will be planted across the universe, will be our Blood Stained Banners.’

God save the Confederacy

“I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes and take so little pains to prevent them…we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government; that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by means of the Bible; for this Divine Book, above all others, constitutes the soul of republicanism.” “By withholding the knowledge of [the Scriptures] from children, we deprive ourselves of the best means of awakening moral sensibility in their minds.” ... Benjamin Rush.
.
The Confederates States of America will in due course of time be liberated and restored, once that take place, the Confederacy, unlike the Union, will hold fast to belief and faith in the Almighty God, in Christ Jesus, the Holy Scripture and Prayer.  This is the foundation and strength of a free nation, for “It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible.” ... George Washington.
