Ghosts of History
Thursday 9 April 2015
"Obstacles may retard, but they cannot long prevent the progress of a movement
sanctified
by its justice, and sustained by a virtuous people." – Jefferson Davis
 

Today is Thursday 9 April 2015, the 150th anniversary of the Surrender of our Confederate Armies, an event which at the time, marked the last opportunity for continuing the Grand Ole Republic, as founded by our Colonial Forefathers.  Abraham Lincoln himself admitted this, self evident truth, which the Progressives (socialists) of our time, have refused to acknowledge in their literal worship of the man.” In saving the Union, I have destroyed the Republic.  Before me I have the Confederacy, which I loathe!  But behind me I have the bankers, which I fear."  Jefferson Davis on the other hand in making an observation, regarding what is today, termed ‘the lost cause’ once stated, "Obstacles may retard, but they cannot long prevent the progress of a movement sanctified by its justice, and sustained by a virtuous people."

Since the death of President Jefferson Davis on 6 December 1889, he has rightfully become one of our Confederate Icons, and for many reasons, among them is his continued life long devotion to the Cause.  There are those who claim he changed his opinion, and began to encourge support and loyalty to the ‘Union’ after 1880, bit this is not true; he then realized hiw own self evident truth, the Confederate Cause would not be resurrected in his lifetime.  Thus he advised his fellow countrymen not  to be bitter!  Davis long held, as he stated before the Mississippi Legislature 16 years after the surrender, that, "The contest is not over, the strife is not ended. It has only entered upon a new and enlarged arena."

The coming of the year 2016 has left many otherwise devout Confederates at a loss, some have even began to question, that perhaps Davis was mistaken.  Just maybe his statement, which was as much as anything else a prophesy, would ever come to pass?  After all it is now 150 years, and the Confederate Cause, which was re-launched in 1990, finally began to blossom.  Still, at the same time the various organizations competed for membership, whose membership lacking any staying power, simply faded back into the woodwork.  It now seems quite natural to consider a real truth that lay directly in front of our face!

The Yankee Empire could and has mustered an Armed Force large enough to face down any power on earth, so how could Confederates then stand against them.  We Confederates could hardly come up with more then a few scattered, undisciplined militia, who by and large would lack any real meaningful devotion to the cause, and of which could hardly be counted upon for more then a good-ole-boy hoe-down.  However this is not what President Davis envisioned, the Cause would arise again, sure enough, but not through a clash of arms, but rather, as he said, it would come as a result of “…a new and enlarged arena.”

So many, over the 134 years since his statement, have interpreted his words to mean, the ‘Confederate Cause’ would become no more then a quaint little social mindset.  Now we know, he had envisioned at the time, while considering the future, those generation beyond his own lifetime, that the victor and vanquished of that terrible war, would in due course, change places.  It is likely that those of his own generation could never imagine a time when that same Union, having defeated the Confederate Armies, and forced to yield to Yankee Rule, would collapse by their own hand.  But we of our generation have born witness first to their corruption, the decay of a people and culture, which has taken place before our vary eyes!

The disasters, which have unfolded in recent years, actually had their root beginnings with the surrender itself, but conditions in our time, have brought them to a climax during the Administration, which I have termed the Pharaoh President.  But in looking back over the last eight years, it must be said, every right-minded Yankee, if there is such a creature, had long tucked the truth away in the dark corners of their hearts.  The evil, which was committed against those they, referred to simply as, Southerners.  In the Yankee mind Abraham Lincoln and to a large degree the Pharaoh President himself, are the secular humanists at heart.  The atheist’s versions of saints, and indeed, and if the truth be told, Abraham Lincoln looked upon as a gods.

The founding fathers created a nation whereby the States were sovereign, the Federal Government could exercise only those limited powers, which are enumerated in the constitution.  The 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution describes this mandate; “The powers not delegated to the United States by the constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, or to the people.”  It should be noted that the issue of State Secession is not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution; therefore the power to decide whether or not a State may secede is reserved to the States, or to the people.

Therefore, constitutionally, as well as in regard to our unalienable rights, those States, which had earlier seceded from the United States, and formed the Confederate States of America, were exercising their sovereignty.  The use of force to require these States to return to ‘Abraham Lincoln’s Union’ was not only unconstitutional, but constituted an aggressive war, involving crimes against humanity and war crimes, by Yankee Forces.  Therefore since the member States of the Confederacy were returned to the ‘Union’ by force, those Constitutional Amendments, which later were ratified, must themselves be considered unconstitutional.

In our time, the United States should be looked upon from two perspectives, the Republic of Sovereign States it was created to be, and the Yankee Empire it became.  It is inevitable that in due course of time the Ghosts of Yankee History, and of their atrocities, will return to haunt them.  There is a better then even chance, this will take place within the not to distant future!  The manner and the details in which the collapse will take place, is yet future!  Nonetheless one cannot help but wander, how could a people with even a measure of intelligence, so ignore the lessons of history.  It is almost as if they have blindly followed a course, which they had to known, would lead to their own national demise.

God save the Confederacy
