Georgia SCV Approves Aggressive Heritage Measures

Below is a Georgia SCV press release:

(Atlanta – June 30, 2014) This month the Georgia Division of the Sons of Confederate Veterans held their 117th Annual Reunion in Columbus and approved the most aggressive heritage platform since the Georgia flag fight more than a decade ago. Coming off several months of increases in membership and finances following the announcement of the Division’s new specialty license plate in Georgia which was featured on every major news outlet in the nation in February, the Sons had the largest attendance in recent history at this year’s reunion. With a membership in Georgia of more than 3,000 men, the Georgia Division is the largest state organisation in the Sons of Confederate Veterans, the oldest national heritage organisation in America.

One of the measures adopted at this year’s annual meeting was a new slate of monuments to be erected across the state during the final year of the Sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, of the War. For the last several years, the Sons of Confederate Veterans have been actively restoring the original monuments erected in memory of the Confederate soldier around the turn of the twentieth century from one end of the state to another. Now, as restoration of those original monuments continues, new monument projects have been planned as well. Newly elected Georgia Division Commander, Ray McBerry, said, “The new monuments are intended as a reminder to the world that the Southern people have still not forgotten their heroes who withstood a formidable invader even though 150 years have passed and as a promise that they will still be remembered by our people after another 150 years have passed.”

The officers, both elected and appointed, to serve on the Division’s Executive Council met briefly following the Reunion to outline plans to actively engage both supporters and opponents of Southern heritage in Georgia. Topping the list was a plan to bring the idea of a youth summer camp to Georgia, citing the success of the national camp hosted by the Sons of Confederate Veterans in one or more states each year. The new proposal will create an annual Southern heritage youth camp to be permanently hosted by the Georgia Division in addition to those hosted by the national headquarters. Other projects that are sure to be popular among Southern heritage enthusiasts include a continuation of the “Flags Across Georgia” project which has produced a number of large Confederate flags along some of Georgia’s most traveled highways and an online grave registry which will catalogue the grave of every Confederate veteran no matter where they are buried.

Finally, the boldest decision announced by the Executive Council is the decision to change the name and scope of the Heritage Defense Committee to the Heritage Action Committee. Bolstered by victories in the last twelve months against both individuals and corporations who have attempted to remove Confederate flags or desecrate graves and monuments, the Georgia Sons of Confederate Veterans are now publicly announcing their intention to take the heritage fight to schools, corporations, and government officials which discriminate against Georgians for their display or celebration of Southern heritage, citing both freedom of speech and state and federal laws which not only protect Confederate monuments but also require that the flags and memorials to Confederate soldiers be afforded the same protection under the law as those to any other American veterans.

League of the South Responds to Phil Robertson Suspension

LEAGUE OF THE SOUTH NEWS SERVICE

19 December 2013

Re: Phil Robertson and A&E

For Immediate Release

The League of the South, the premier Southern Nationalist organization, supports Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty in his Biblical condemnation of sodomy. Moreover, we encourage our members and supporters to boycott the A&E Channel and their advertisers until they issue a sincere apology to Mr. Robertson and end his suspension from the program.

League President Michael Hill said the following: “The executives at the A&E Channel have shown their contempt for Mr. Robertson’s right to speak the truth from God’s own word about the sordid nature of sodomy. This is merely one more incident that proves that the purveyors of American popular culture are committed to an anti-Christian and anti-Southern agenda of hatred and lies. We urge Southerners and others of good will to support Mr. Robertson and to let the A&E Channel know that they will not be watching Duck Dynasty or buying the products of their advertisers until this matter is rightly settled.”

League of the South Statement on Gun Control

LEAGUE OF THE SOUTH NEWS SERVICE

9 January 2013

For immediate release:

The Obama administration is threatening to use Executive Orders to further dismantle the Second Amendment. Democratic Senator Diane Feinstein (CA) is set to introduce a draconian bill to ban “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines, among other things, later this month. Between the two, they are intent on turning otherwise law-abiding gun owners in the South and elsewhere into outlaws with the stroke of a pen.

But won’t these law-abiding gun owners comply with the new “laws?” Won’t they dutifully register their “assault weapons” with the authorities and submit to other restrictions on buying, owning, and transferring firearms? Some will but many will not. They will instead become outlaws.

In the last month, millions of Americans have bought millions of weapons and over a billion rounds of ammunition. They are not buying these expensive things in order to register them or turn them in to the gun grabbers at some point in the future. They are buying them to defend themselves, their families, and their property from whomever might threaten them. And at present, the biggest threat is the U.S. government itself.

The League of the South, the premier Southern nationalist organization, will not comply with any diminution of our God-given right to keep and bear the sort of arms a free people need to remain free. This means “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines. Moreover, we will view any attempt to deprive the Southern people of these tools as a criminal act by a criminal regime.

What is the Southern National Congress?

The following is an e-mail from the Southern National Congress:

The Southern National Congress is a deliberative body designed to provide Southerners with a forum to voice their authentic concerns regarding the South’s continued cultural life, prosperity, and distinctive existence. The Southern National Congress provides a means of expressing Southern goals, grievances, and solutions, in an open manner not presently existing anywhere else in the public sphere. This is being accomplished within a framework conducive to the complete independence for our southern States.

The Southern National Congress is an organization of volunteer Southern citizens whose objective is to effect the freedom and independence of the several Southern States and their People so that they may restore their historic traditions of self-government and ordered Christian liberty.

Why the SNC?

Today’s public institutions–political, financial, and cultural — have become increasingly alienated from the Southerner in his identity as a Southerner. The Southerner and the Southland are becoming mere commodities, useful one day, to be discarded the next.

This is because the political, economic, and intellectual systems that exist in these united States today are destructive of those who will not stand for themselves. The old institutional protections that in the past provided some protection for the people, their identity, heritage, and welfare, have been allowed to decay into nothing. The South must stand independently as a distinct nation, people and culture – or cease to exist.

Publicity Opportunity for the League of the South

Below is an e-mail from the League of the South:

The League of the South has a message all freedom-loving Southerners ought to hear. It is the message of Southern independence from a sinking, corrupt, and destructive government in Washington, DC. When our people hear this message, they usually react positively to it. After all, no one in his right mind wants to go down on an obviously sinking ship.

But how many of them never hear our message because the liberal media either ignores us or presents a very distorted view? As much as we hate to admit it, our organization is still unknown to most Southerners. Why? One reason is the clutter of mass information—we get buried beneath the crush of topics that dominate both the conventional news cycle and the internet. Another is the nature of our message. It is unpopular with the “powers-that-be,” including the news media; therefore, it is ridiculed, marginalized, or simply ignored. But perhaps the main reason we remain under the radar is the lack of funds to advertise our message.

The League of the South Board of Directors has approved a major publicity campaign. It will take money to do a test run of this project. Though we are not yet at liberty to divulge all the details of this project (mainly because we think our enemies would try to prevent it), we are to the point where we are ready to raise the money to fund it.

As President of the League, I am asking for at least 50 members or supporters to pledge $30 quarterly, $60 semi-annually, or $120 annually to this test project. Our ultimate goal is to raise $6000 ($1500 per quarter) over the next 12 months to put this publicity campaign to a real live test run.

You can make a quarterly or semi-annual pledge (for which we will send you a “coupon book” as a reminder of your pledge) or you can simply make a one-time annual donation for the amount you wish to pledge. Anything we raise over and above the necessary amount will be placed in a special fund to help with the continuation of this project.

Though initially we are running a test (which we will be able to closely monitor), we believe the project has merit and thus will prove successful in getting us out from below the radar and into the eye of the Southern public. I am asking you to make a pledge today. Once we have the necessary funds committed and all the plans in place, we will announce the launching of this important project, first to League members and supporters and then to the general public.

If we fund and plan it well, the project will draw a great deal of attention to our message.

Please make your contribution to the League office today by sending your donation by mail to: LS, PO Box 760, Killen, Alabama 35645 or by visiting our website athttp://dixienet.org/members/Outreach_Project.php.

The League of the South News Service
Florida To Hold Independence Conference

(Jacksonville, Florida) The Florida League of the South is pleased to announce its Annual State Convention to be held on Saturday, 26 May 2012.

The voluntary Union of sovereign States given us by the Founders is now a dead thing of the past. An alien class and ideology that are completely hostile to our historic way of life now rule the South that you call home. However, don’t expect an appeal to the Constitution or to common decency to stop the criminal class from further terrorizing the land.

The theme of this year’s conference is “The Only Alternative”; a three part educational strategy and will be held at the Jacksonville Public Library, West Regional Branch Conference Center, 1425 Chaffee Rd., S. in Jacksonville, Florida

With the tremendous growth and national press coverage of the League of the South as the largest “States’ Rights” organisation in existence, the League has become a recognised leader in the effort to restore liberty here at home. If you’re ready to take a stand, we urge you to join us for this refreshing meeting of liberty-minded Floridians.

Attendees will enjoy the slate of speakers for this year’s event including Dr. J. Michael Hill, President of the League of the South; Pruffula Singh, educator and speaker from Ocala, Florida; and Michael Crane, Clerk of the Southern National Congress from our sister state of Georgia. Be on hand to hear these dynamic messages, breathe a bit of un-reconstructed and politically incorrect fresh air and learn how you can personally make a difference!

Admission to the conference is free of charge. The general public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Gathering and registration begins at 10:30 AM. Seating is limited. RSVP’s to the email address above are requested.

Every man must choose for himself the path he will tread. It is human nature to seek out the easy way. That is what our enemies count on us to do. Join ranks with The Florida League of the South in Jacksonville this May 26th in our efforts to return sovereignty to Florida and our beloved Southland.

The Florida League of the South is an affiliate of the League of the South, based in Killen, Alabama, with chapters throughout the Southern States.

Press Release: Former Congressman Virgil Goode Receives 2012 Constitution Party Presidential Nomination

Of course this isn’t news to CHT readers, but here is the official release of the Constitution Party:

Former Virginia Congressman, Virgil Goode secured the Constitution Party’s nomination for president at the party’s National Convention Saturday, April 21st in Nashville, Tennessee. Goode was one of six candidates vying for the spot. He won on the first ballot.

Goode served 24 years in the Virginia Senate. He was elected to Congress in 1996, succeeding L.F. Payne. Goode left the Democratic Party to become an independent before the 2000 election and then joined the Republican Party ahead of the 2002 election. Goode was unseated in 2008 by Democrat Tom Perriello. Though he undoubtedly could have regained his seat in 2010, Goode opted instead to join the Constitution Party to help provide a real alternative for the average American voter.

Goode said he plans to attract voters such as Democrats who are dissatisfied with President Barack Obama and Republicans who don’t align with presumptive nominee Mitt Romney’s policy positions. “Romney’s and Obama’s positions are not all that different. There’s not much distinction,” Goode said. “My position would be significantly different from either of them.”

Howard Phillips Retires From the Conservative Caucus

Press Release:

Phillips Retires After 37 Years of Leading The Conservative Caucus

Howard Phillips, founder of The Conservative Caucus (TCC) and its Chairman since 1974, has resigned, saying that recent health problems required that he “direct my energies on my health, my family life, my spiritual priorities, and my writings.” He affirmed his gratitude “for the opportunities God has given me to work with such fine people and I remain wholeheartedly supportive of the important work and mission of this organization.”

Phillips, now 70, led TCC through successful battles to block ratification of the SALT II Treaty, begin the SDI missile defense program, repeal the Catastrophic Coverage Act, prevent passage of Hillary Clinton’s socialized medicine scheme, and persuade the House of Representatives to impeach President Bill Clinton.

He visited all 50 states in campaigns against the Panama Canal treaties, SALT II, and the nuclear freeze. He also held organizational meetings in all 435 congressional districts during the early years of TCC.

His leadership in TCC’s Victory Over Communism project included support for anti-Communist freedom fighters in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, repeal of the Clark Amendment, Congressional approval of the MX missile, a 600-ship navy, and even a visit to Eastern Europe and the Baltic states as the Soviet empire began to show signs of collapse.

Phillips is a graduate of the Boston Latin School and Harvard, having served as President of the Harvard Student Council. He was one of the founders of Young Americans for Freedom.

Prior to founding The Conservative Caucus, he was Republican Chairman of Boston and campaign manager for Richard Schweiker’s successful 1968 Senate campaign in Pennsylvania.

During the Nixon administration, Phillips headed the President’s Council on Youth Opportunity and the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO), and won nationwide conservative acclaim when he attempted to eliminate the OEO programs.

The Constitution Party (originally named the U.S. Taxpayers Party) nominated Phillips as its candidate for President in 1992, 1996, and 2000.

TCC’s Board of Directors expects to choose a new Chairman early in 2012, with Darrell Castle serving as interim Chairman. Castle was the 2008 Vice-presidential nominee of the Constitution Party.

League of the South Post Convention Statement

In the wake of the League’s 17th annual national conference, we believe it is time to restate the obvious for those who still don’t “get it” yet: the US government in DC is an organized criminal enterprise. Despite being founded on the “principle” of limited government, it has its tentacles in virtually every aspect of our lives all over our beloved Southland. It has become Godless and is rapidly approaching bankruptcy. Something must be done quickly to free us from this monster.

Don’t tell us to wait until the November elections—the GOP is not our savior. Rather, it is only the other side of a counterfeit coin. After all, who started this corrupt bailout business in September 2008 in the first place? Obama was merely a candidate at the time, though he has certainly continued to advance the Bush policies of allowing the banksters to continue their crime spree unabated.

New Websites Say Both Obama and McCain Stink!

Editor’s Note: Both Obama and McCain Stink. I couldn’t agree more.

A Rasmussen Poll said that almost half of all voters were not happy
with their Presidential candidate choices, just before Hillary Clinton
dropped out of the race and now a new website offers yard signs, buttons,
bumper stickers, and clothing that states “Both Obama and McCain stink/suck!”

“I do not like either of the top Presidential candidates and I know
that a large number of Americans agree with me on this,” said William
Gheen the founder of the new sites and host of the Last Americans Standing
radio show. “I’m sick of the lesser of two evils game and regret that
we have to pick between two poor candidates who are both DC insiders
during this time of national crisis.”

The new websites found at www.ObamaAndMcCainstink.com and
www.ObamaAndMcCainSuck.com gives American voters a way to express their dismay over the 2008 Presidential elections.

A President Who Listens to Americans on Immigration

*Below is a Press Release from the Constitution Party.*

Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin (www.Baldwin08.com) is the only candidate who has vowed to secure the borders, enforce immigration laws and free Border Patrol agents Compean and Ramos.

McCain and Obama are identical in their pursuit of ever-more liberal amnesty for illegals.

Americans have seen their cities and towns overwhelmed by the illegal burden on their schools, jails, hospitals and environment.

What can we expect if either of the major party candidates is elected president? More of the same- violent crime, depleted social service budgets and cultural annihilation.

It’s time to elect a president who listens to Americans on the immigration issue.

It’s time for Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin.

Richard Viguerie Wants Ron Paul Included in the Debates

Richard Viguerie needs to put his money where his mouth is and endorse Ron Paul. He could help Ron Paul, and he could also separate himself from GOP sycophants like Weyrich and Keene, who both endorsed RINO Flip Romney. The Vigs e-mail is below.

 

From:             Richard A. Viguerie

 

Subject:           Who said this about liberal media bias? (Ouch)

                        And what you can do about it right now!

 

Dear Fellow Conservative:

Guess who made this poignant observation in 2003 about the liberal bias of the mainstream media:

“Bias has to do with the elimination of points of view, not presenting a point of view.”

Answer: The quotation comes from none other than Roger Ailes, the brilliant political operative and businessman who is president of the Fox News Channel. 

Well said, Roger. However, that’s exactly what Fox News is doing now, by barring Ron Paul from your January 6 New Hampshire presidential debate.

Ron Paul’s Exclusion From Fox Debate Confirmed

Here is the link to the official Ron Paul campaign press release.

December 28, 2007 10:39 pm EST

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – According to the New Hampshire State Republican Party and an Associated Press report, Republican presidential candidate and Texas Congressman Ron Paul will be excluded from an upcoming forum of Republican candidates to be broadcast by Fox News on January 6, 2008.

“Given Ron Paul’s support in New Hampshire and his recent historic fundraising success, it is outrageous that Dr. Paul would be excluded,” said Ron Paul 2008 campaign chairman Kent Snyder. “Dr. Paul has consistently polled higher in New Hampshire than some of the other candidates who have been invited.”

Snyder continued, “Paul supporters should know that we are continuing to make inquiries with Fox News as to why they have apparently excluded Dr. Paul from this event.”

Chris Brunner of Lew Rockwell says don’t contact the NH GOP. It may not be their decision. It appears that it is Fox News’ decision.

Ron Paul Raises More Than 6 Million in One Day!

Paul broke two records, his own from earlier this year, and John Kerry’s one day record from 2004. He has now surpassed his 12 million 4th quarter goal. Here is the official press release.

December 17, 2007 703-248-9115

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – Congressman Ron Paul’s presidential campaign had a record fundraising day yesterday.

In a 24-hour period on December 16, the campaign raised $6.026 million dollars, surpassing the one-day record of $5.7 million held by John Kerry.
