The First War of Imperial
Aggression against the South was initially intended to be, at least on the part
of some of its leaders, a war of annihilation.
General W. T. Sherman wrote of the purpose of the war in a letter
to his wife on July 31, 1862: "Extermination,
not of soldiers alone, that is the least part of the trouble, but the
[Southern] people." His charming and nurturing wife Ellen wrote back that
her fondest wish was for a war "of extermination and that all
[Southerners] would be driven like the Swine into the sea."
Because of the great costs involved in
pursuing their war, the yankees were stopped short of their ultimate goal, and for
a time shifted their wars of extermination to the Native American populations. They
now seem ready to once again undertake the complete destruction of the Southern
people, though I expect the costs for them will still be extremely high.
War is now being made against, not only the
living, but the dead, as these ghouls seek to remove all remembrance of the
past and in some cases even dig up the remains of Confederate leaders and their
families (see the recent actions of the City Council of Memphis).
No remembrance can remain of those men who
had the courage to stand up to the repressive and tyrannical central government
that emanated from Babylon on the Potomac. After all, such remembrances just might
give those currently under Washington’s thumb some inconvenient ideas.

obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
elaborated upon that premise in his book, 1984.
His main character, Winston Smith, attempted to explain the actions of the
regime to his love interest: "Every record has been destroyed or
falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue
and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the
process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped.
Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always

doubt but that Leviathan seeks the utter and total destruction of the Southern
people. It may soon extend to the physical realm as well. As Sherman noted, they

the state is banking on the notion that the people cannot prevail in an armed confrontation with
the state. They certainly seem hell-bent on bringing about such a confrontation

not what the outcome of all this may be, but seek to maintain the same
perspective as did General Robert E. Lee: "At present, I am not concerned
with results. God’s will ought to be our aim, and I am quite contented that His
designs should be accomplished and not mine."
I have for a long time now kept a sidearm strapped to my hip, pretty much 24/7. Yes, even
when I am in the pulpit. Recently I started to keep an AR very close at hand,
generally slung over my shoulder, just to set myself in the right frame of
mind, if nothing else.
The words of Captain John Parker
to his militia on Lexington Green come to mind: "Stand your ground. Don't fire unless
fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here." These are
words that we would do well to take to heart.
Until these self-made
deities of the state have achieved their goal of open warfare, I think our best
course of action is to continue to secede in mind and heart and to encourage
the establishment and maintenance of a shadow culture where we may support and
encourage one another. We must abjure the corrupt realm and seek to establish
our own. How long the tyrants will allow us to do so peacefully remains to be
