Why Jefferson Davis Was Not Tried for Treason

Image result for jefferson davis jailed

After the War of Northern Aggression was over, Jefferson Davis was captured and jailed for two years. He was released without a trial. In fact no Confederate government officials faced any charges after the war. There was a very good reason why the Federal government did not have any trials. Once again, history told by the victors has covered up abuses of the Constitution and the actions of the Federal government.

You have to wonder how bad it actually was when even a major abolitionist like Horace Greeley came to Jefferson Davis’s defense.

The post-war Jefferson Davis: The famous trial that never was

On May 10, 1865, about a mile from the town of Irwinville, Georgia, Federal troops captured Davis. With his arrest on that spring morning, his government ceased to exist. His wife, Varina, and their children were sent to Savannah, where she was kept under virtual house arrest and forbidden to leave the city. Because the soldiers, carpetbaggers and Union supporters treated the Davis children so badly, Varina arranged for them to go to Canada along with her mother.

Davis had been taken back to Virginia and imprisoned in Fort Monroe, where he would stay for the next two years. At first, he was bound in leg irons. Guards watched him around the clock but were not permitted to speak to him. He was allowed no visitors; a light burned in his cell day and night; and his only reading material was a Bible. His treatment was a clear violation of the Bill of Rights.

Modern Day Carpetbaggers

I read the following comment on Facebook concerning Sherman’s march to the sea.

Sherman’s innovative strategy was to seize the food stores, and destroy whatever crops and livestock they couldn’t take — instead of seeking out enemy armies, and killing thousands of soldiers. There were less than 1000 casualties, both killed and wounded, on both sides, combined, in Sherman’s March to the Sea. Compare that to Gettysburg, where there were 51,000 casualties in one battle. It amazes me that some people think Sherman’s March was worse than massed armies fighting pitched battles with tens of thousands of casualties.

The man who wrote this comment lives in Cary, NC but went to school in Michigan. The comment was made on Rep. Blust’s post praising Lincoln and a veiled attack on Rep. Pittman’s comment stating the truth concerning the tyrant Lincoln. As shown in that post, people are woefully ignorant concerning the facts of the War of Northern Aggression. For anyone who is not familiar with the “innovative strategy” mentioned above, here is one excerpt:

Targeting Civilians

Americans are still fascinated by the war because many of us recognize it as the defining event in American history. Lincoln’s war established myriad precedents that have shaped the course of American government and society ever since: the centralization of governmental power, central banking, income taxation, protectionism, military conscription, the suspension of constitutional liberties, the “rewriting” of the Constitution by federal judges, “total war,” the quest for a worldwide empire, and the notion that government is one big “problem solver.”

Perhaps the most hideous precedent established by Lincoln’s war, however, was the intentional targeting of defenseless civilians. Human beings did not always engage in such barbaric acts as we have all watched in horror in recent days. Targeting civilians has been a common practice ever since World War II, but its roots lie in Lincoln’s war.

The fact is, the Lincoln government intentionally targeted civilians from the very beginning of the war. The administration’s battle plan was known as the “Anaconda Plan” because it sought to blockade all Southern ports and inland waterways and starving the Southern civilian economy. Even drugs and medicines were on the government’s list of items that were to be kept out of the hands of Southerners, as far as possible.

I am not classifying all Northern transplants as carpetbaggers. I am classifying those transplants who are ignorant of history and spread their ignorance as carpetbaggers. Imagine the outcry today if the federal government came in and killed 76 civilians for a BATFE fundraiser. Imagine the outcry if a president who won the Nobel Peace prize had killed innocent civilians around the world with drone strikes.

I could give more examples but the root cause of this is simple: people like power at all levels. And they are willing to justify its abuse. But there are judgment days on both earth and Heaven.

The Debt Crisis Of 2017: Once Their Vacation Ends, Congress Will Have 4 Days To Avoid A Government Shutdown On April 29

Want to know the reason behind the government’s distractions in Syria, China and North Korea? That dog is wagging as outlined below.

David DeGerolamo


April 2017 could turn out to be one of the most important months in U.S. history that we have seen in a very long time.  On April 6th, Donald Trump attacked Syria on the 100th anniversary of the day that the U.S. officially entered World War I, and now at the end of this month we could be facing an unprecedented political crisis in Washington.  On Friday, members of Congress left town for their two week “Easter vacation”, and they won’t resume work until April 25th.  What this means is that Congress will have precisely four days when they get back to pass a bill to fund government operations or there will be a government shutdown starting on April 29th.

Up to this point, there has been very little urgency by either party to move a spending bill forward.  It is almost as if everyone is already resigned to the fact that a government shutdown will happen.  The Democrats will greatly benefit from a government shutdown because they can just blame the entire mess on the Republicans.  But for the GOP, this is essentially the equivalent of political malpractice.

To me, there is simply no way that Congress is going to be able to agree on a bill that funds the entire government in just four days.  And it turns out that this upcoming deadline comes exactly on the 100th day of Trump’s presidency

Michael Savage Turns on Trump, Says Syrian Gas Attack Was False Flag Operation

Conservative talk show host, Michael Savage, who fervently supported Trump during the Presidential campaign, soured on him today. Savage, referencing his background in science, having a PhD in epidemiology, said the alleged gas attack in the ISIS controlled city of Idlib was most likely phosgene and not sarin.

Backing up his claim that the attack did not contain sarin, Savage made reference to photos showing first responders attending to bodies without gloves or protective gear. Had sarin been used in the attack, all of those men in white helmets would be dead.

Putin Responds: Syria Strikes “Cripple US-Russia Relations”

Responding to Trump’s unexpected military attack on Syria in which 59 cruise missiles were launched (of which only 23 allegedly hit their target), Russian President Vladimir Putin “regards the strikes as aggression against a sovereign nation,” his spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, noting that the president believes the strikes were carried out “in violation of international law, and also under an invented pretext.”

The Kremlin spokesman insisted that “the Syrian army doesn’t have chemical weapons,” saying this had been “observed and confirmed by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, a special UN unit.”

With Trump As President Prepping Is More Important Than Ever

by Brandon Smith

I don’t believe it is as pervasive as certain people may think, but there is a notion among some in the liberty movement that with Donald Trump in the White House the need for crisis preparedness has subsided. Because preppers and survivalists tend to lean towards the conservative side of things, the urgency for prepping almost always explodes when the Democratic party is “in power.” As they say, for example, Barack Obama was perhaps the greatest gun salesman in history with the gun industry growing over 158% during his two terms.

Now with Republican dominance in Congress, Senate and White House, there is a possible temptation for conservatives to become complacent and comfortable once again. In 2017 so far, ATF background checks have dropped by at least half a million since this time last year, and gun company stocks are turning negative. There are also rumors floating around that survival food companies are suffering from a severe crunch in sales. Though I have not yet found this to be substantiated, I can verify that many preppers I deal with on a daily basis seem to have relaxed their guard.

Dirty Rice

stilton’s place, stilton, political, humor, conservative, cartoons, jokes, hope n’ change, susan rice, spying, trump, obama, surveillance, benghazi, youtube, video

Rice has adamantly declared that she did nothing wrong, adding “I leaked nothing to nobody.” Which, by the inflexible rules pertaining to the use of double negatives, means that she leaked everything to everybody.  No doubt with considerable help from Barack Obama, who spontaneously (why does that word keep coming up in association with Susan Rice?) changed the rules pertaining to inter-agency sharing of raw intelligence just before leaving office in order to ensure as much damage to the incoming Trump administration as possible.

And speaking of Barry, just where is he while all this damning information is coming out…?

March Child Rapes by Illegal Aliens in NC


Unfortunately, another month has come and gone and the unabated raping of children in NC, by illegal aliens, continues.

Last month, March 2017, we were able to document and confirm18 different illegal aliens, who were charged with 74 separated counts of child rape/child sexual assault and kidnapping to commit those acts.

This brings the total for the past 11 months to:
170 separate illegal aliens 
592 separate counts of child rape/child sexual assault

Believe it or not, YOU can put a stop to this! All you have to do is call your Representative’s assistant in Raleigh and demand they co-sponsor the 6 House bills we have listed on our website. If enough of you do that, then they will listen. It’s really that simple to make a difference.

Unless you contact your N.C. House of Representative member in Raleigh, this disgusting act against our children will never end.

March 2017 Child Rape Report:

Thanks for your support!

The Phoenix Template, Part Two, by Robert Gore

Click for Part One

Intelligence agency is a misnomer, whether one defines intelligence as an ability to gather and analyze information, or as an ability to determine the salient and what it portends. Foreign CIA outposts are often stocked with so-called experts who don’t know the native language. They read translated documents and media reports, but the outposts are insular and agents miss on-the-ground intelligence and sentiment they would pick up talking with natives at a neighborhood bar. The locals they do talk to are often English-speaking collaborators with CIA-approved agendas, funded by US government and US-backed nongovernmental organizations. They tell the agency what it wants to hear. The CIA sees itself as a master manipulator, but it is often more manipulated than manipulating.

Intelligence whiffs are legendary. Individual members of the intelligence community and military undoubtedly realized that most Vietnamese saw the US as the latest in a long string of hated imperial powers, but that truism was never officially embraced. If it had been, history might have been dramatically different. In 1956, US puppet Ngo Dinh Diem reneged on a promise to conduct elections that would have reunified Vietnam. He almost certainly would have lost to national hero Ho Chi Minh. From that point on, the US was seen as just another subjugating power. That single fact doomed the US effort from the beginning, but it was rarely, if ever, mentioned in the voluminous intelligence and military reports, even ones that talked about winning “hearts and minds.” (A bizarre tenet of US government groupthink: foreigners have no memories. Thus, what was done in 1956 was supposedly forgotten by 1957. See also the history of Iran since 1953. The intelligence community never saw the 1979 revolution coming.)

Connecticut Set To Become First State To Allow Deadly Police Drones

Connecticut could become the first US state to allow police to use drones equipped with deadly weapons if a bill opposed by civil libertarians becomes law. The bill, which was approved overwhelmingly by the state legislature’s judiciary committee on Wednesday, would ban so-called weaponized drones in the state but exempts police and other agencies involved in law enforcement, the AP reported.

Currently five states – Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, Vermont and Wisconsin – prohibit anyone from using a weaponized drone, while Maine and Virginia ban police from using armed drones, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Several other states have restricted drone use in general. So far, 36 states have enacted laws restricting drones and an additional four states have adopted drone limits, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
