Division of Forces

The Yankee Empire makes the critical mistake!
.

The Roman Empire was the super power of its day, so much so that no nation could stand against its mighty legions.  But the Roman Empire corrupted itself from within, divided and finally collapsed.  Many among our numbers have wondered from time to time; could the Yankee Empire be traveling down the same highway, as did the Romans before them?  The Roman Empire made mistakes in four critical areas; its monetary system became worthless, its family structure weakened, it imported more then it exported and finally they lost the ability to produce the necessities of life within their own borders.  But after all their mistakes, they sealed their doom by continuing to conquer and police the entire known world thereby over stretching themselves.  Does that scenario sound familiar?  It should, the Yankee Empire has committed precisely the same blunders!

The Montgomery Conference

On a bright Monday morning a decision was handed down by the Supreme Court by a six to three vote, which had the effect of stated the equal protection clause of the constitution applies to Homosexual marriages.  The extreme liberals were elated and homosexual boasting was all over the networks, which meant the laws and traditions of the States and of society itself had been overturned.  The news media was filled with the story, while politicians, religious leaders and civil rights organizations were seen on the mass media in a seemingly endless parade.  The governors of the Southern States knew all to well the citizenry expected them to do something to stem the tide.  Therefore on Wednesday 18 March a Southern Governors Conference was called, but unlike previous conferences the legislative leadership was also urged to attend.

All the members in attendance were also aware the federal would send their armies, just as they had done during the early days of the Civil Rights Movement and these State officials realized they had only two options, resist or comply.  The conference attendees quickly rallied around newly elected Alabama Governor Pete Peterson who had never held elective office before and spent a lifetime career as a U.S. Army Officer.  A power of this emerging Southern Leaders became obvious when the Alabama Governor was seen surrounded by the Governors of Georgia and Mississippi.  Then they in turn were seen in close accompaniment with the governors of South Carolina, North Carolina, Arkansas and Louisiana.  The press had dubbed them the magnificent seven after the famous movie by that same name.
.
The States of Texas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, Florida and Missouri attended the meeting; howbeit with some measure of reluctance, but gave indication they'd support the other Southern States if push came to shove.  Texas held back only inasmuch as; they demanded that the endless flow of illegal immigrants would on the table.  Mississippi and Georgia being within the inter-circle had no difficulty in also placing the issue of the extreme liberal hold on our Southern cities on the table as well.  All of them agreed that if possible the Southern Governors must regain command and control of their own State Military Forces.  However dominating above every other issue was the issue of a dictatorial Supreme Court which overturns State laws, regulation and customs at will, even to the extent of having the effect of rewriting State Constitutions.

Governor Peterson was well aware they'd be dealing with issues, which must be forbidden to all but invited guests, and this included the federals.  Nothing extra-ordinary was being planned before hand, but it was urgent that those in attendance be allowed to speak freely, without any fear of retribution by federal authorities.  A confidential committee was appointed to throw the federals off course by holding the meeting on two different levels; one would be used to mask the other.  Therefore the main conference would be open to invited guest only, however outside of a minimal screening; no particular effort would be made to forbid the federals entry.  Those attending the closed door conference would have their backgrounds investigated thoroughly, howbeit in a discreet manner and their entrance into the conference hall would require a series of pass numbers which worked much like opening a bank volt.  Additionally the closed-door conference hall was screened for bugging devices, which might have been planted by federals, news media or individuals unfriendly to the mission and purpose.
 
The Flash Point is Reached
.
The remainder of Saturday and Sunday National Guard Troops were on the move and made ready to defend the Statehouse in Montgomery as Governor Pete Peterson and his aides, in the company of several congressional leaders, exited and took their place on the top steps of the capital building.  The federals were quite aware of these events and knew the center of this 'rebellion' was the Governor of Alabama, so immediate attention was given the other Southern States.  It was anticipated that when the Alabama Governor was brought under subjection to federal authority or arrested, the other States would fall in line.  The governor had done is homework and while the federals believed they would ultimately gain control of the situation, the Governor of Alabama was equally as certain he would prevail should a confrontation occur.  The federals could not know, this time one Southern State would not stand alone, and they had the force to support their convictions.
.
Governor Peterson was also aware that federal troops were already within a couple miles of the capital and would oppose any attempt at resistance on the part of Alabama Officials.  It was 9:00 a.m. when the governors approached the microphone and began to speak; we are here for the purpose supporting our unalienable rights as citizens to restore government to its proper roll under the constitution.  We therefore find it not only a matter of honor but of duty and responsibility that we must insist upon a complete return of State sovereignty.  The issue of the institution of marriage is of divine origin and cannot be altered by the whims of an imperial federal court system.  We therefore do not stand in opposition to federal authority, merely for the sake of States Rights alone, but for the sake of human civilization.
.
The federal marshals then stepped out from the crowd, walked up the steps and handed the governor a Presidential Orders to transfer the State National Guard, which stood in formation nearby, to federal authority.  The governor replied; these orders are unlawful, unconstitutional and a violation of our unalienable rights as citizens of this State of the sovereign State of Alabama.  The governor having refused the federal marshal's Presidential Order then turned to the Commanding General of the State National Guard and read to him the order.  Will you obey the Presidential Order and submit to federal authority?  The General then replied; our Commander in Chief is, was and remains, the Governor of the State of Alabama, I am compelled by my oath as well as my sense of honor to defend constitutional government, as is every officer present here.
.
This being said the federal marshals walked down the ranks of the troops and repeated the orders saying, those who disobey these orders are subject to Courts-Marshal and possible imprisonment for disobeying a presidential order.   Every soldier to a man continued to look straight ahead making no response whatsoever.  The marshals then approached the governor and his staff and stated; each of you are hereby under arrest; no sooner had the federal marshal spoke the words when the troops could be heard coming the ready.  The governor then stated; we shall see which of us shall be placed under arrest; general place these men under arrest for violating the constitution as well as the sovereignty of the State of Alabama, as well as for having violated his own oath to preserve, protect and defend the constitution.  One of the marshals quickly clicked his cell phone, which was interpreted as a signal to federal forces not far away to converge on the scene.
.
In Defense of Freedom
.
Just about that moment federal troops approached and quickly surrounded the Alabama State Troops; its commander, a U.S. Army Colonel ordered his men to disarm the Alabama Troops, if they refuse to comply the order to open fire will be given.  The federal Colonel finished speaking and approaches the steps where the Governor of Alabama had changed his position and was now standing upon the star at the top step.   This star marked the very spot where Jefferson Davis was inaugurated President Confederate States of America.  The governor had previous refrained from standing on the star believing he was unworthy!   Now he now did so paused then began descend down the steps toward the Colonel where they met about half way.  Colonel I do believe you should be more certain as to your position before giving your troops orders to engage in hostile action.  Look across the street!


The federal Colonel looked about and saw a division of Georgia State Troops and in the other direction a division from Mississippi Troops, which were rapidly closing in to surround the federal forces, their individual State Flags flapping in the wind.  Georgia displaying what has come to be known as the 'Real Georgia Flag; the governor then walked down the steps and mingled among the troops.  He began to address them concerning the purpose and principles behind the refusal of the Southern States to obey the Supreme Court as well as the marshals Presidential Order.  Gentlemen, the governor said; pause for a moment and consider carefully what your decision will be in this matter.  You are being ordered to fire upon these people gathered here, thereby costing the lives of many among your own numbers.  If you open fire, our State Forces will be compelled to defend themselves and there shall be a blood bath.


How will you defend your actions before the throne of Almighty God, and in the face of future generations yet unborn?  What would you say to them, we were defending freedom?   The usurped powers being exercised by the Federal Government have never been enumerated in the constitution, and are therefore left to the States or the people.  Shall they alter thousands of years of human civilization, let alone the word of the Living God, by redefining what constitutes marriage, while doing so by force of arms?  I invite every one of you to peacefully cross the space, which separates our State Forces from your own, and join with them in a brotherhood of defense against a rapidly encroaching federal tyranny.  This issue has moved beyond a single case, whereby it is a certainty any wrong decision on your part will not only cause a bloodletting, but also the lost of our liberties.
.
The governor then approached the federal Colonel and asks him a question!  "Your oath Colonel requires that you support and defend the constitution; when will you carryout your sworn oath?   Perhaps when the constitution has been interpreted into extinction by an un-elected court system, which is no longer restrained by the constitution or the oath to which they have foresworn?  You are required to defend it against all enemies both foreign and domestic.  Are these people who stand here in support of our collective right to govern over all domestic affairs within the borders of the State Alabama now your domestic enemies?  If this were the case, then you and your troops have made yourselves the enemies of liberty!  If you believe you are foresworn to obey ALL Presidential Orders, how does that make you different then the Nazi's who obey Hitler with unquestioned loyalty?
  .
Are you not obligated to defend the constitution, even from a tyrannical president who has now taken actions outside of his delegated powers?  Our State Forces are not here to take away the liberties of others, but to guarantee them.  Why then have you come to our State?  Is it not to kill and destroy not only our liberties, but also our lives, homes, as well as our sovereign State?"  While the governor spoke, three companies of militias approached and began to fill in the space between the Georgia and Alabama Troops.  As the governor pass their way the militia commander saluted and stated; we are here to defend our liberties and as such we are reporting to the Governor of Alabama.  The federal troops, which had remained obedient and silent, now began to look at each other in bewilderment, and then began to fall out and move forward to join the State Troops nearest to them.

The Dominos Fall
  .
The mass media covered the growing resistance as it began to unfold in the other capitals of the 13 Southern States, and the federal government being true to its thirst to retain absolute power called out more troops.  The fracture was quickly widening and now involved far more then the original decision handed down by the Supreme Court little more then a month earlier.  Large crowds poured into the streets of Richmond Virginia and surrounded the Statehouse in support of their own Governor's position.  In Nashville Tennessee a confrontation took place where tens of thousands of unarmed civilians face off against armed federal troops.  The crowds carried anti-federal posters some of which bore various statements such as "How many will you kill" and another sign read, "Bring down the federals."
.
The U.S. President surrounded by his cabinet and congressional leaders held a press conference from the oval office appealing for calm and urging the States to adhere to the law of the land, and comply with the Supreme Court decision.  The president speech only added fuel to what was by now a growing firestorm, which convinced an overwhelming number to feel like the federal government was not only arrogant but out of touch.  As state after state faced a confrontation with federal marshals and armed troops sent by Washington, the people became ever bolder in their resistance.  South Carolina responded by recalling their entire congressional delegation and placing any federal agent in jail that attempted to exercise power.  As the rift grew wider the Southern States further defied their federal masters by raising the Blood Stained Banner of the Confederacy over their Statehouses, and lowered the Stars and Strips.
.
In Charleston Harbor a fleet of small motor boats filled with protesters moored at Fort Sumter Island, seized it and raised the Confederate States National Flag, and then held the federals prisoner in the very fort they had ruled over for so long a time.  The number of States resisting the Supreme Court grew beyond the original 13 when Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona quickly passed new laws and raised the Confederate Flag over their Statehouse as a sign of the support for the Southern position.  The State General Staffs of these same states began to organize their National Guard units and growing numbers of federal troops, which had come to their aide into State Confederate Armies.  The Governor of Alabama seeing they had become successful far beyond anything they could have hoped for called for a conference of delegates from all the supporting States.
.
Things were progressing on schedule and with minimal violence, none-the-less Governor Pete Peterson and his newly formed Confederate Council of senior representatives from each of the supporting States knew, if they did not cease control of the military bases within the Southland while keeping their operations well organized, conditions would quickly deteriorate.  The local Airman at McClellan Air Force Base who had transferred their loyalty to the Confederate forces would make a quick take over possible, while resuming military operations in short order, howbeit as Confederates.   Information had come their way indicating that beyond Montgomery the numbers were in favor of the Confederates as well, but these new loyalists had not thus far taken the initiative in most cases.  It was decided a military base of operations would be needed; so key personnel among the Airman at McClellan Air Force Base in Montgomery Alabama were secretly contacted.  Confederate troops would be put on alert and made ready to support the mission and a quick coordinated strike both from within and outside the base was decided upon.
.
Battle of Taylor Air Force Base

Skirmishes broke out most of which occurred along the main entry and exit where federal loyalists had disguised their true loyalty in order to mingle among the Confederates.  In addition there were several pockets of resistance among federal airman who had held up on concealed locations around the base.  However all resistance collapsed as dawn broke on Saturday 2 May 2009, then shortly afterward a sizeable caravan of automobiles carrying Confederate dignitaries approached the main gate.  The Governors automobile halted the caravan at the location where several Confederate Airman were now on duty, one of which was a Master Sergeant who had taken up a position expecting them to arrive.  The Sergeant was overheard ordering the others to render a salute saying, your new Commander in Chief, salute, salute.  Governor Peterson gave his first order at the Air Base saying, Master Sergeant, have your people change the name on that sign to "Taylor Air Force Base"
.
The name Taylor was chosen as the new name of the base in honor of Confederate General Richard Taylor, son of Zachary Taylor and brother of Jefferson Davis' first wife who had passed away earlier in Davis' life.  Taylor was the last General to surrender east of the Mississippi and played an important roll in gaining leniency for Jefferson Davis after his capture and imprisonment.  Governor Peterson also added to his orders, and do make sure the Confederate Battle Flag appropriate to the size of the sign is included.  Taylor Air Force Base quickly became a kind of Confederate Headquarters and center of operations, as well as a temporary capital for beginning the process of rebuilding the Confederacy’s national infrastructure.  The Confederate States General Staff quickly set up operations, communicating and coordinating operations throughout the supporting States.

The Confederacy's Commanding General and Governor Peterson while entering the base headquarters building, was approached by a Technical Sergeant with several of his crew who gave saluted the two men.  The airman then stated; Governor, General a flight of fighter aircraft landed on the base from the northwest, the pilots all support our cause.  We'd like to change the U.S. markings and emblems on these aircraft to those of the Confederacy; would that be permissible?  The two men looked at each other and smiled, the general nodded to the Governor in agreement, the Governor answered the airman in the positive.  By all means airman!  The General Staff then proceeded toward their mission of consolidating all forces who supported the cause and forging them into an effective Confederate fighting machine.
.
Meanwhile on Monday 4 May Governor gave the order to seize all regional I.R.S. Offices and halt all federal tax payments.  Additionally their agents were to cease operations in behalf of the federals and register with the Confederate Council at Taylor Air Force Base.  Several convenient locations were established throughout the States for this purpose!  On Thursday Governor Peterson ordered the Stars and Strips removed from all military installations as well as public building, and that they should be removed with dignity, in honor of those Southerners who had given their lives under its furls.  Further the Governor insisted that all captured or surrendered federals should be treated with dignity and in a humane manner that they be allowed to remove their own flags themselves if they so choose, according to their own custom.  In a conversation with the Commander of his General Staff the Governor stated; “if we have had minimal violence, it is only by the grace and divine providence of Almighty God.  The contributing factor can be attributed to their being so enormously outnumbered in every category.  However this process is still ongoing!”

Atlanta Celebrates Davis' Birth
  .
The birthday of Jefferson Davis, Thursday 3 June was drawing near and the enormous success of the Confederates thus far in the struggle has energized an ever-increasing crowd of supporters into our cause.  Not since the premiere of Gone with the Wind in 1939 has there been such a crowd in Atlanta, but this time there was a measure of fearful anticipation on the part of the locals.  The population of Atlanta was now majority black and they were totally opposed to any signs of Confederate flags, symbols or celebrations, in particular the person of President Jefferson Davis.  However as the day grew nearer it became obvious that massive crowds of Confederates would fill the city streets with a massive spectacle of Confederate States nationalism and patriotism.
  .
On Tuesday 1 June the city was already beginning to see large crowds gathering for the coming celebrations and among the organizations most responsible for making the arrangements is the Confederate Alliance, which has now grown into a powerful political confederation in its own right.  The President of the Confederate Alliance held a news conference on the steps of the Atlanta City Hall were arrangements were confirmed for the parade permits as well as working out last minute details.  The Alliance President was ask many questions by the press to which he responded; "It is the collective right of our people to celebrate their own history, heritage, culture and yes nationhood.  It is our intention to do so in a lawful and peaceful manner.
.
Those who would use this occasion to spawn violence and anarchy may find force met with force.  It has become obvious to everyone the Confederate Cause has experienced an enormous growth which has brought on the victories to which we have all born witness.  It has become equally as obvious the Confederate States of America will gain its liberation from occupation and stand as an equal among the sovereign nations upon the earth.  Our adversaries have suggested that somehow we will reinstate slavery or that the black race will be reduced to slavery’s equivalent. These stories come from political correctness and historical revisionism and do not reflect the true nature of our cause.
.
None-the-less we do hold that under the Confederacy there will be no favored class or special privileges granted to any race.  If all men are truly created equal then this factor means we all bear equal responsibility and shall therefore be expected to compete on an equal footing, both in society and in the market place.  In like manner all men are equally expected to support their local communities, state and nation, standing along side other men regardless of their race.  Therefore in an independent Confederacy there shall be no Asian Americans, African Americans or European Americans for we shall all be Confederate Citizens and become as one people.  Those who somehow stand on principles alien to these, will not find themselves welcome in an independent Confederate States of America.”
.
The Battle of Atlanta
.
The crowds continued to pour into Atlanta and tensions grew until rioting broke out as the sun set over the metropolis.  The Confederates however were ready and move quickly to surround the area of the rioting, allowing no one to enter or exit and the Georgia National Guard; now being called the State Army of Georgia arrived to reinforce those Confederates already on scene.  The order was then given to close the noose a block at a time, using automatic weapons if necessary to halt the rioting and burning.  The rioting continued until dawn when the combined forces came together having totally squashed the outbreak of rioting.  The remainder of the city having witnessed the reality, that under the Confederacy peaceful protest was welcome but rioting would not be tolerated, by this example such people were convinced them to stay home.
.
The next morning Wednesday 2 June the Commanding General of the Army of Georgia held his own press conference in the same spot as the President of the Confederate Alliance had done the previous day.  The general stated; "The loss of life as well as the accompanying destruction of property was neither necessary nor gainful, save that peaceful measures were not adhered to by the protesters.  We grieve along with the loved ones and friends of those who have died in the process of restoring order.  However let us now work together toward the day when all of our citizens might be at peace and safety in their homes, and about the business of life.  I have already been asked about rebuilding the devastated area where the rioting took place and to that I will say, we will engage in urban removal in this case, rather then urban renewal and a new Confederate Atlanta shall arise from the ashes.


Those who chose violent means to express their frustrations destroyed homes and business.  Let me give fare warning, in an independent Confederacy no man shall be denied his individual rights, save the right to inflict injury, death and harm upon another or deny his fellow man of his property.  Thank you very much for your cooperation in this matter!"  The general then descended the steps of City Hall got into his staff car, leaving behind a regiment of troops to ensure the peace in that sector of town.  The next morning on schedule at 10:00 a.m. the largest parade ever witnessed in Atlanta began to move through the center of the city.  Armed Georgia Troops were seen all along the way, as well as being positioned throughout the general area of the parade route.  Those who would have otherwise turned to violence maintained a peaceful profile, as crowds of Confederates swelled the population to double its normal size.


The mass media already present in town were quietly warned before hand, cover the events as you wish, but do not use your right to a free press to provoke the people.  Least you find your means of carrying out your free press removed from your hands, and given to those who comprehend the responsibility of the press.  The damage and destruction to Atlanta amounted to nearly a third of its total geographic size, if placed together into a single area.  The death toll may never be known, but the example set forth in Atlanta sent out an unmistakable warning to the lawless and violent members of society.  The many civil terrorist groups such as the N.A.A.C.P., A.C.L.U., S.P.L.C. and the N.O.W. also got the message and were never made an appearance, thereby allowing the issue past into history.  In future years not only would a new Atlanta arise from the ashes, but a restored Confederacy, including all of her cities.
.
Memphis in Flames
.
The gains made by the Confederates did not come without some measure of violence, howbeit small in comparison with an all out war.  The weekend beginning on 4 September was emphasized by a heated debate over the State of Tennessee having removed the politically correct curriculum from the public schools and instituted an already existing text, which taught our history, heritage and culture from the perspective of the Confederacy and the South.  While whites by and large accepted it as the normal turn of events given so many Confederate victories in the political and military arena, the black population however was divided.  A large percentage of black not only accepted these new realities but also was in complete support, wanting an end to political correctness, preferring history taught as it really happened.
.
The Confederates had moved fast to consolidate their gains in both the political and military arena and now commanded an armed force, which would be the envy of any nation.  The debate over the change in curriculum remained peaceful in beginning, a curriculum that included bible reading and prayer in the public schools.  The vast majority of the parents and pupils complained very little when schools once more began to open with a bible reading and prayer.  A few non-Christians such as Muslims and Atheists who had refused to participate were in effect told to either shape up or ship out, howbeit not in those words.  Contrary to the political correct opinion of previous years the schools were not turned into theological seminaries, but merely began to respect the Almighty God, the Holy Scripture and Prayer.
.
However tempers began to flare when radical blacks refused to participate and staged a walk out when the new text came into actual use in real terms, whereby it was no longer a proposal but a reality throughout Tennessee, with the other supporting States rapidly following Tennessee's example.  When violent clash broke out between police and radical blacks the Mayor reluctantly requested assistance from Governor William Conley who immediately sent in 20,000 troops to squash the violence and restore order.  The Navy Base at Millington to the north and the small village at Collierville to the east was used as a staging ground were the Tennessee State Army, unchained from federal intervention moved in quickly, bringing a swift end to what was now being now termed, radical black civil terrorism.
.
This terminology was purposefully used to separate these radical blacks from others who went about their lives lawfully and peacefully.  It was Wednesday 23 September before the emergency was declared at an end, but nearly a forty percent of the city had been destroyed.  The Governor using Georgia's example proclaimed there would be no urban renew, rather urban removal and a new Confederate Memphis would arise from the ashes.  There were several other cities, which saw some measure of violence, such as Birmingham Alabama and Richmond Virginia but not to the same degree, and these were settled by firm police action.  These events however did serve to drive a permanent wedge between a minority of black and liberal whites who vehemently opposed the Confederates, and a vast majority who were in total support of a liberated Confederacy.
.
Confederates Achieve Victory
.
While the Confederates had thus far gotten off relatively easy, there were situations in which strategy had to overcome force; among these was the battle of the Pentagon where the facility was seized at a moment when the fewest people were on the premises.  Inasmuch as the staff and employees live in the surrounding community, it was believed more lives would be spared by rounding them up in their separate location rather then an all out assault on such a huge complex.  However this was not accomplished without a fair size battle, which took place as Confederates moved in for the take over.  It was estimated that approximately 1,500 total casualties were suffered during the course of a two-day stand off, due in large part due to the federals having unexpectedly moved approximately a division of troops into place.  The benefits of victory were never the less incredible, not only in terms of properly ceased but also in having cut off one of the heads of a multi-headed military colossus.
.
Another crisis came when Nevada raised the Confederate Blood Stained Banner over its Statehouse and lowered the Stars and Strips.  It is estimated that more then a third of the geographic area of the State is tied up in a high security military base.  The death toll of seizing this facility would be staggering, so Governor Pete Peterson after discussions with the Nevada Governor William Bentley decided on another tactic.  All entrances and exits to and from the base would be sealed form the outside.  Additionally the base wanted security, this would be used as a weapon against them, and so the base would become their prison.  All flights in and out of the base were terminated and enforced by recently acquired ground and air based laser technology.  There would be no food, medical supplies, replacement parts or goods of any kind; in effect the base was sealed.  Governor Peterson instructed his General Staff, continue to tighten the noose around them, but under no circumstances will cross onto the base and face death at the hands of their security measures.
.
The governor gave the order; we will simply wait them out, and one day they will emerge to face a world different from that which existed before. The days, weeks and months passed as the Confederates gain control of their own communities and States one piece at a time, until finally the people's attention began to shift toward the subject of reinstating the Confederate States government.  While the process was slow in coming due to the urgency of gaining sufficient control over the geographic area of the Confederacy, a process was put in place toward that day.  The victory did finally come, and the cost in human life was relatively small, when compared to the period of 1861 to 1865.  It must be remembered the lower statistics were still equally as horrifying to the family and friends of those killed in action.

But in finality the low causality rate was due in large part to the masses of the people who were prepared to prevent an open war by showing up in overwhelming numbers.  Their numbers force the federals to face a choice, a wholesale slaughter of unarmed civilians, or submit to the demands of 'WE THE PEOPLE.'   A little over a year had passed since it all began when on 30 April 2010 the last of the federals remaining within the borders of the Confederacy surrendered.  The Confederate States of America now consisted of 13 States and seven territories seeking Statehood for a total of 20 States.  There was no surrender in the normal sense of the word, however representatives of the United States and the Confederate States met at Appomattox Courthouse Virginia on Saturday 10 May and signed the Articles of Peace, which included their recognition of the Confederacy.
.
Confederate States Constitution Reactivated
.
Confederate States national elections were ultimately held, Governor Pete Peterson who had provided such dynamic leadership was elected the Second President, Confederate States of America.  There were many of those who had served on the Confederate Council, and from this list he appointed to his Presidential Cabinet, which helped rebuild the Confederacy.  The date of 10 May became Confederate States Independence Day, and would be celebrated with parades, picnics and much fanfare.  The United States Armed Forces was reduced to approximately a third of its previous size, while the Confederacy was now twice their strength and in military terms had gained great advantages in technology.  The United States was force to withdraw its troops from Europe, as well as nearly every other nation around the world.
.
Confederate Embassies began opening across the globe and the world learned that Confederate States foreign policy would be far different then had been known under U.S. rule.  A number of United Nations and the World Trade Organizations member nations withdrew from those organizations when the Confederacy proposed a voluntary alliance of sovereign nations, which respected the rights and sovereign action of those who joined the new alliance.  The oil fields under the Confederacy when added to the several refineries already on its soil, allowed the Confederacy to be an oil independent nation.  The Arab nation did not fail to take notice of having lost a valued customer!  The States of Alaska and Hawaii seceded from the United States and entered into a Commonwealth status with the Confederate States of America.
.
In liberating the Confederate States of America and reactivating the Confederate States Constitution assurance were given that no none slave could be made a slave, nor could slaves be imported into the Confederacy.  Therefore the institution of slavery had died with passing history, but many of those who lent support wanted more.  Added to these were those who wanted assurances against intrusion and control by international organizations such as the United Nations and the World Trade Organization.  The victory having been won, it was now time to fulfill promises made.  Therefore among the emergency issues President Pete Peterson dealt with during his first months in office were bills to commission the Confederate States Armed Forces as well as the Confederate Monetary System.  He also met with congressional leaders seeking and gaining support for the following to constitutional amendments:
.
a. The First Amendment: The institution of slavery, having passed into history, shall not be reinstated within the Confederate States of America.  The provisions of this amendment shall not be so interpreted; so as to transfer additional powers to the general government of the Confederate States of America, other then the prohibition of slavery.
.
b. The Second Amendment: There shall be no international or global treaty, agreement, regulation, resolution or adjudication permitted to override, supplant, alter or terminate the sovereignty of the individual member States of this Confederacy, or the territories thereof.  This amendment shall apply equally to all individual State laws, regulations and their constitutions; including the heritage, culture and customs thereof.
.
Summation
.
The reemergence of a free and independent Hawaii allowed the State to reestablish its historic heritage and culture, while at the same time establishing the democratic Polynesian Kingdom of Hawaii.  The State of Alaska entered into an agreement with several Confederate Corporations whereby the Confederate States would receive first priority for the purchase of oil over and above all other client nations.  The member States of the Confederacy completely regained their sovereign rights and helped make the Confederacy the world’s strongest and wealthiest economic power.  The Confederacy would be maintaining an internal emergency structure for dealing with natural disasters, but this resulted in the Federal Emergency Management Administration 'F.E.M.A.' being replaced by an interstate cooperative between the States.  The cooperative proved far more efficient and effective in dealing with disasters!
.
As an addendum it should be noted, the N.A.A.C.P., A.C.L.U., S.P.L.C., N.O.W. and the other civil terrorist organizations were never heard from again, after their leadership was given the option of leaving the country or face the possibility of many years in a Confederate prison.  Confederate States independence was won the politically correct names of buildings; streets and parks began to disappear and were replaced by those of Confederate or historic Southern origin.  The political parties of the United State were abandoned by the mutual agreement of all the Confederate candidates, to be replaced by those more attuned to our history, heritage and culture.  The summer and fall of 2010 saw a new debate, which was not possible under occupation, the dismantling or reduction of the public school system in favor of private schools or home schooling.
.
While race did not become a major factor in and of itself during the modern struggle for independence, the hatred preached by black organizations caused a large percentage of them to fear ever living under the Confederacy.  This resulted in a mass exodus of blacks once it became obvious the Confederates would prove victorious.  A major shift in demographics took place whereby nearly all of the cities of the Confederacy had become predominantly white, with a much smaller black population.  Additionally all domestic issues became the sole purview of the individual States or local communities, which included race, abortion and Christianity in the schools.  While world opinion was divided on the subject of the division of the United States and what was being termed the 'Rebirth of the Confederacy' none dared to take advantage of the situation, since the Confederacy was now a nuclear armed nation.

Governor and later President Pete Peterson had made it clear from the beginning, that the Confederacy desired to live in peace with all people, and would not be a threat to any nation.  While at the same time we would defend ourselves, and this warning was particular aimed as a warning against potential terrorists that the Confederacy would return their violence a thousand fold in fire and blood.   Our various neighbors in the Caribbean and across our South borders were also warned that should their citizen desire to enter the Confederacy, they will do so legally through the front door, rather then steal across our borders like a burger breaking into someone's house.  Thus the liberation of the Confederate States of America took place without an international incident, and without the enemies of our previous occupational forces.


God save the Confederacy
