U.S. could free Israeli spy in deal to save peace talks

One thing's for sure: The U.S. most definitely has a "special relationship" with Israel. It's similar to the kind of relationship you see in the beaten wife syndrome, as this nauseating news nugget makes clear:

An Israeli spy serving a life sentence in the United States and groups of Palestinian prisoners could be freed under an emerging deal to salvage Middle East peace talks, sources close to the negotiations said on Monday.

The sources, who spoke as U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry prepared to meet Israeli and Palestinian leaders, said under the proposed arrangement that Jonathan Pollard, a former U.S. Navy analyst caught spying for Israel in the 1980s, could be released by mid-April.

In addition, Israel would go ahead with a promised release of a fourth group of Palestinians, among the 104 it pledged to free in a deal that led to the renewal of peace talks last July. Another group of jailed Palestinians would also go free - and the peace talks would be extended beyond an April 29 deadline, the sources said.
What a deal - Israel gets its hero, the Palestinians get their people, and we get the greatest prize of them all: We get to maintain our "special relationship" with Israel. Win-win-win!

In case you've forgotten, here's what Jonathan Pollard - an American citizen, at least on paper, if not in terms of loyalty - did to his country:

Pollard did more damage to the United States than any spy in history. And it was genuine damage, not just a mass of documents that had been routinely classified. Pollard’s Israeli handler, aided by someone in the White House who has up until now evaded arrest, was able to ask for specific classified documents by name and number. The Soviets obtained US war plans, passed to them by the Israelis in exchange for money and free emigration of Russian Jews without any regard for the damage it was doing to the United States. The KGB was able to use the mass of information to reconstruct US intelligence operations directed against it and a number of Americans and US agents paid with their lives. Pollard also revealed to the Israelis and Soviets the technical and human source capabilities that US intelligence did and did not have, which is the most critical information of all as it underlies all information collection efforts. Compounding the problem, the United States has never actually been able to accurately ascertain all of the damage done by Pollard because the Israeli government has refused to cooperate in the investigation and has not returned the documents that were stolen.
But what do you want to bet that the Israel-Firsters will meekly accept this outrage while screaming for Edward Snowden's head?

Outlawing "Dangerous Speech"

Oh, look, here's another campaign to make the world a better place by defining what people cannot say in public:

Hateful and even violent speech are familiar online; what’s unusual are data-driven efforts to diminish them. Experiments so far have produced intriguing results including: some ‘trolls’ recant or apologize in response to counterspeech, and small changes in platform architecture can improve online discourse norms. Benesch will describe these findings and propose further experiments, especially in climates where online speech may be tied to offline violence.
I wonder if they're targeting groups that have actually inspired nut cases to turn violent, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center?

How much you want to bet?

Secessionism on the March!

Literally:

Several thousand European separatists, overwhelmingly Flemish but also Catalans, Scots and South Tyroleans, demonstrated in Brussels on Sunday for the right to self-determination.

Under a forest of yellow flags emblazoned with black lions, Flemish separatists dominated the procession through the European Union's capital, which marched from Parc du Cinquantenair near the European Commission's headquarters towards the European Parliament.

The crowd, which marched under a banner proclaiming "Europe, we'll vote for self-determination", numbered almost 3,000 people, according to a senior police officer.

The ruling elite considers self-determination as "fringe" and "extremist," meaning that it doesn't fatten their bottom line. Anything that doesn't serve the Establishment is branded as extremist, and the corporate media does its part to paint all independence movements as inspired by wackos.

But whether the globalists like it or not, independence movements are proliferating and growing.

France's Front National claims biggest victory in its history

Has Europe recovered its will to live? Stories like this inspire hope:

The Front National scored a major victory by claiming the mayorship of the 7th sector of Marseille, putting it in charge of 150,000 people.

“We have moved onto a new level,” Marine Le Pen, FN leader, claimed. “There is now a third major political force in our country.”

Vive Marine!

Check out the terrible paper that earned a player an A- at North Carolina

Believe it or not, this was written by someone who not only finished high school, but was admitted to college. Wow.

But because the paper parrots the holy Rosa Parks narrative, it received an A-. I bet the "student" thought the minus was just another microaggression against him.

This is a perfect illustration of the price we pay for sports entertainment in this country, which, right up there with political correctness, is part of the national religion. What a travesty.

Quote of the day

"Multiculturalism isn't merely a failure, it is, like the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty, a leftist program that is delivering precisely the opposite of what it purported to deliver. Instead of racial peace, it has created racial hate. Instead of an end to nationalism, it is delivering intranational ethnic strife." Vox Day

Spam comment of the day

From yet another spammer who's apparently just finished ESL 101:

"great publish, very informative. I wonder why the opposite experts of this sector don't understand this. You must proceed your writing. I'm sure, you have a huge readers' base already!

Here is my homepage"

New York Schools Most Segregated in the Nation

So says this study by The Civil Rights Project:

“In the 30 years I have been researching schools, New York State has consistently been one of the most segregated states in the nation--no Southern state comes close to New York,” commented CRP Co-Director Gary Orfield. “Decades of reforms ignoring this issue produced strategies that have not succeeded in making segregated schools equal.  It is time to adopt creative school choice strategies to give more New York children an opportunity to prepare to live and work effectively in a highly multiracial state.”

My point in posting this report is not that Yankees are hypocrites (though they are). My point is that people are going to self-segregate. If liberal New York - and not just the rural upstate, but New York City - cannot force people to be absorbed into a globalist utopia, then it cannot be done.

Like communism, multiculturalism can be imposed for a time by force, but cannot sustain itself. Both are too anti-human to work.

Hard times for Neocons

The most vivid illustration of how unnatural and unstable the DC regime has become was the orgy of mutual recrimination that followed the collapse of the Iraq and Afghanistan adventures. As the flimsy lies that united the bizarre coalition of war supporters became too glaring to deny, public support evaporated. Those who had convinced their constituencies to overlook their differences and rally 'round the flag quickly resorted to demonizing their former bedfellows. It got nasty at times.

You can deny reality for only so long. Really now: How long could we pretend the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan could hide behind such fantasies as Andrew Sullivan's War of Global Gay Liberation, Charles Johnson's Crusade against Tradition, and Free Republic's Great Patriotic War?

Little wonder that the War Party is descending these days into increasingly shrill and unhinged attempts to revive public support for perpetual war. The silliest in recent memory is Michael Gerson's warning that Americans have  "overlearned" the lessons of Iraq and Afghanistan. In other words, to paraphrase Gerson, "Americans made a huge mistake in 2003: They trusted us Neocons. But that doesn't mean you should never trust us again when we want to attack another country that has not threatened or attacked us."

Even worse, says Gerson, by not invading Libya, Georgia, and Syria, just to name a few countries begging for another US-led "liberation," Americans are increasingly showing "tolerance of crimes against humanity." Yes, that's what he said.

If we really cared about the people in other countries, we'd bomb them. Keeping out of other people's wars demonstrates a lack of compassion.

Of course, Gerson somehow forgets the ACTUAL results of past US interventions. Just to list a few:

- Vietnam, 1960-75 -- Two million Vietnamese killed in longest US war.
 - Indonesia, 1965 -- CIA-backed overthrow of Sukarno in 1965 resulted in estimated death of one million people.
 - Cambodia, 1969-75 -- US carpet bombing killed two million people.
 - El Salvador, 1981-92 -- troops and air power assisted death squads, 75,000 people killed.
 - Serbia -- Clinton's 'Wag the Dog' Air War in 1999 killed 6,000 Serbian troops and 2,000 civilians.
 - Iraq -- US-led sanctions result in the estimated deaths of over one million civilians, from 1990 to 2003. And the Iraqi invasion and occupation has killed over 700 US troops, 5,000 Iraqi troops, and 8,000 civilians.

But Neocons, like the leftists from which they mutated, are at war with reality. We're supposed to focus on the nobility of their theories, not the real-world consequences of their policies.

Conservative-Hating Southern Poverty Law Center Removed From FBI’s ‘Hate Crimes’ Resources

It's true - good news comes in waves. Rising self-determination movements around the world, Pat "No-Tel" Cannon in handcuffs, and now this slap in the face to the SPLC:

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has a long history of unfairly labeling right-of-center groups as “hate organizations,” has reportedly been removed from the FBI’s “resources” section on the agency’s Hate Crime Web page.

The FBI didn’t comment on the removal, which also included the scrubbing of a link to the Anti-Defamation League. But the timing suggests that a letter recently sent to Attorney General Eric Holder and FBI Director James Comey by a coalition of family groups had something to do with the removal.

The family rights groups, which included the Family Research Council (FRC) and American Family Association (AFA), contended in the letter that SPLC was responsible for inspiring a domestic terror attack on FRC’s Washington, D.C., headquarters.
True, this won't affect the SPLC's status as oracle to the handpuppet press, nor will it touch the millions Mo Dees has squirrelled away in his offshore accounts. But it's a start.

Patrick Cannon resigns after arrest on corruption charges

Oh, my. The Charlotte Observer is driven to tears:

Charlotte Mayor Patrick Cannon was arrested Wednesday on public corruption charges, with the FBI alleging he took tens of thousands of dollars in bribes – including $20,000 in cash delivered in a briefcase last month to the mayor’s office where he also solicited $1 million more.

Cannon resigned Wednesday evening. He was arrested that morning at a SouthPark apartment used by undercover FBI agents after the mayor turned up expecting another payment, sources say.
This is no surprise. And while the liberals at the Observer will weep over this, Cannon has made many enemies who see this as a deserved comeuppance. As I wrote last December:

It was Cannon, a member of the powerful Mecklenburg Black Political Caucus and the NAACP, who intimidated the Sheraton Charlotte Airport Hotel into denying Jared Taylor meeting facilities for his American Renaissance conference. In an email to a constituent, Cannon bragged: “I have all hotels, motels, and gotels [sic] on notice and they seem to be cooperating well still.” There's a good reason Cannon has so much clout with Charlotte's "hotels, motels, and gotels." As a councilman, Cannon voted to give the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority $7.5 million for marketing in 2011, despite the obvious conflict of interest. As the Charlotte Observer reports:

Cannon’s company, E-Z Parking, has a no-bid contract with the CRVA to manage a 330-space parking lot on Caldwell Street, across from the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Last year, a CRVA report shows the tourism authority paid E-Z Parking $72,144 in fees and incentives, in addition to documented expenses.

The Observer article noted that Cannon had received "significant" campaign contributions from Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority board members, as well as many hotel owners. Conflict of interest? Mayor Cannon shows no signs of conflict.
So the pattern of corruption was well established. No wonder the FBI went fishing and snagged a big one. And it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Congress Not Informed that the Constitution Was More Or Less Suspended

Who says the DC regime is an illegitimate autocracy based on force and fraud? Other than us extremist haters, that is?

Well, here's Jay Rockefeller, who was the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence committee in 2007 when a reporter asked him about Congress' degree of control over CIA's secret overseas operations:

Don’t you understand the way Intelligence works? Do you think that because I’m Chairman of the Intelligence Committee that I just say I want it, and they give it to me? They control it. All of it. ALL of it. ALL THE TIME. I only get - and my committee only gets - what they WANT to give me.
Various federal "security agencies" - which obviously concern themselves only with the security of the ruling elite - have spied on members of Congress, as well as private citizens. It's all unconstitutional, of course, but hey, who's gonna stop them? The real power in DC is NOT "the people" and certainly not the people's pretend representatives, but the permanent bureaucracy that has an iron grip on the machinery of power. That was illustrated all too vividly when Congress was bypassed in the creation of a "shadow" central government:

Key congressional leaders say they didn’t know President Bush had established a “shadow government,” moving dozens of senior civilian managers to secret underground locations outside Washington to ensure that the federal government could survive a devastating terrorist attack on the nation’s capital, The Washington Post says in its Saturday editions.

Senate Majority Leader Thomas A. Daschle (D-S.D.) told the Post he had not been informed by the White House about the role, location or even the existence of the shadow government that the administration began to deploy the morning of the Sept. 11 hijackings.
The bottom line is that rogue, self-serving spy and military agencies run things in DC. They use the most noble-sounding holy words to pretty up their actions, but that doesn't change what they are.

U.S. To Send Scientists To Discuss Homosexuality With Ugandan President

The president of Uganda has approved a popular law passed by the Ugandan legislature that criminalizes homosexual behavior. According to BuzzFeed, President Museveni signed the law, which imposes a lifetime prison sentence for homosexuality, because he believes that no one is “born gay.”

In response, John Kerry is dispatching scientists to Uganda to convince Museveni otherwise.

This puzzles me. Deeply.

First of all, what business is it of John Kerry's, or of the U.S. taxpayers who're footing the bill for this expedition, what the people of Uganda think about homosexuals?

It gets stickier. Liberals like John Kerry are quick to insist that both race and gender are not based on genetics, but are instead social constructs.

But we're supposed to accept that homosexuality is determined at birth by our genes.

My head hurts.

Poll: Most say U.S. doesn’t have a responsibility in Ukraine

Despite the lunatic ravings of Charles Krauthammer, Susan Rice, Li'l Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and John Bolton, a healthy majority of Americans rejects the idea of DC's intervention into Ukraine. Thank God.

Do you think that after being lied to a dozen times too many makes people distrust their government? Could be. And a government that is no longer trusted has lost its legitimacy.

Who says many illegal immigrants are on welfare?

A recent news item on problems faced by the El Paso, Texas, schools said this about students: "Almost all of their families meet the official definition for low income. For example, 100% of our kids get free lunch. Almost all are immigrants." ... "Most students are here illegally."

Shocking! Call the SPLC! This blatant hate speech from National Public Radio must be condemned.

Wait ... National Public Radio? Uh-oh ...

Young Southerners: Just say "No!" to the Evil Empire.

French right triumphs in local polls that hammer ruling Socialists

Have Europeans found their backbones? This news from France is VERY encouraging:

France's far-right National Front party dealt a major blow to the ruling Socialists Sunday after several of its candidates took prime position in the first round of local elections.

The main centre-right opposition UMP party also hailed a "big victory" as initial estimates showed it came out trumps in the elections, as President Francois Hollande suffers record unpopularity against a backdrop of near-zero growth and high unemployment. ...

Applauding what she said was "an exceptional vintage for the FN", Marine Le Pen -- head of the anti-immigration, anti-EU party -- said the polls marked the "end of the bipolarisation of the political scene".

Although the FN had been expected to do well, the first round results were far better than expected.
Europeans who support socialism and multiculturalism have a death-wish. This is just the latest indication that people are waking up to the threat of unlimited immigration and big government.

Is Sardinia Next?

It's getting hard to keep up with all the secessionist news. The latest is from the island of Sardinia, which was an independent nation much longer than it has been part of the artificial entity of "Italy."

Let a thousand flowers bloom, I say.

Idaho governor signs emergency legislation nullifying all federal gun laws

Now this is big. The new Idaho law not only nullifies federal control over the gun rights of the citizens of that State, but asserts that any FUTURE legislation from DC that exceeds Constitutional authority is also null and void:

On Thursday, Idaho Governor Butch Otter (R) signed a bill, which would effectively nullify future federal gun laws, by prohibiting state enforcement of any future federal act relating to personal firearms, a firearm accessories or ammunition.

S1332 passed the house by a vote of 68-0 and the senate by a vote of 34-0. Alaska and Kansas have also passed similar laws.

Erich Pratt, Director of Communications for Gun Owners of America, cheered the governor’s action. “By signing this nullification bill into law, Idaho has joined an elite class of states that are telling the feds to ‘get lost’ — especially when it comes to unconstitutional gun control infringements.”
Did you catch the numbers by which this passed in the Idaho legislature? That's what it takes, folks - unity and resolve. But the first step is understanding both the problem, and that's an overgrown, malignant federal bureaucracy, as well as comprehending the historical and legal facts behind nullification.

We're living in some MIGHTY interesting times, aren't we?

Thanks to loyal reader Kearney for the heads up!

Venice votes to cut ties with Italy

Don't look now, but we're in a brave new age of devolution. The latest example comes from Venice, home of the former Republic of Venice. Folks there have overwhelmingly voted to break away from Rome:

Italians in Venice and its surrounding region have voted in an online poll in favour of breaking away from the rest of the country and forming their own state.

Over two million residents of the Veneto region took part in the week-long survey, with 89 percent voting in favour of independence from Italy.
It's a real hoot to see leftist and Neocon champions of "democracy" (as THEY define it!) denounce this and other popular movements toward self-determination. I enjoy watching hypocrites squirm, and this newest wave of popular secession referenda has big-government apologists wriggling like worms on an August sidewalk. Ya gotta love it.

A Conservative Defense Budget Should be A Conservative Cause

Why do self-styled "conservatives" line up with liberal Democrats such as Carl Levin and Neocon girly-men like Lindsey Graham? Because in fact, they're all little more than servants of the War Party, that's why. An eye-opening expose in the latest Unz Review.

Quote of the day

"There is a term of art in economics that I like: 'revealed preference.' The root idea is: Never mind what people say they prefer, or what some pure-reason formula proves they should prefer, but what their behavior shows they actually prefer. The revealed preference of hatewatchers is to live among white people. The aforementioned Tim Wise allegedly lives in census tract 134 west of Nashville, Tennessee: 97% white, 0% black." John Derbyshire, a bad, bad man who notices things he shouldn't.

The right to secede

As the Tom Toles cartoon above illustrates, secession in Crimea, like secession in Scotland or Catalonia, is not an academic issue. Nor is it a trend that only affects people "over there." In fact, all the overgrown political units bound together by brute force in the 19th and 20th centuries are now confronting populations demanding more autonomy, if not outright secession, from their former conquerors.

Writing in The New York Daily News, Dr. Robert Barro of Harvard notes this rising tide as a natural and benevolent development. The ruling elites of the world make a great deal of noise about their commitment to all sorts of human rights, but somehow overlook the one basic right from which all others flow, and that is the right of self-determination:

The potential switch of Crimea and parts of Eastern Ukraine to Russia raises the more general issue of the right of secession. Many individual freedoms — for example, of speech, the press and religion — are viewed as central elements of liberal constitutions, but the right to secede is seldom viewed this way. ...

If I were able to design a constitution from scratch, I’m sure I would include provisions for peaceful secession. The procedure would have to define the underlying sub-regions, such as U.S. states, designate a voting mechanism for residents of a potentially departing region, and might require a super-majority, such as 75%, of the voters. This structure would provide a useful check on central authority, make country borders align better with underlying population characteristics and minimize conflict.

Barro makes clear that secession is not motivated by some irrational hatred of "others," as nervous apologists for the old order, such as the online snitches at the Southern Poverty Law Center, would have you believe. Secession is instead "the process of generating the optimal sizes and compositions of countries." Behind that process, says Barro, is "the desire to have a reasonably homogeneous population within its borders." Without cultural unity, conflict is inevitable. As conflict between sparring ethnic groups rises, social cohesion and liberties can only degrade, as both history and objective scholarship have proven. The old model of a multicultural population kept in check by an authoritarian government is no longer sustainable.

The dustbin of history has a space reserved for that imperial model.

DC takes in record-setting revenues

Even after adjusting for inflation, DC has amassed the largest amount of tribute ever from its subjects.

No wonder DC is now the nation's richest city. I'm glad someone's doing well in these tough times. Aren't you?

The New Venetian Republic?

It could happen. And for many good reasons, both historic and economic. From Russia Today:

Veneto is one of the biggest and wealthiest provinces in Italy with a population of more than 5 million people. One of the main reasons for the vote is that the region is tired of the backbreaking burden of taxes imposed by Rome.

“We would like to continue the economic ties with Italy,” Lodovico Pizzati, the spokesman for the independence movement, told RT. “But from a fiscal standpoint there’s a huge gap between what we pay in taxes and what we receive as public service. We are talking about a difference of 20 billion euro.”

The latest polls, suggesting that about 65 percent of the population is in favor of becoming independent, have encouraged the independence movement leaders finally to have the region’s fate decided.
Constant brainwashing from the ruling elite and its toadies in the media and academia has convinced many that secession is invoked only by those who enjoy beating their slaves. In fact, secession is a practical solution to the problems caused by overgrown government. And it's coming here.

Bill Kristol Calls For Americans to be ‘Awakened and Rallied’ to War

The Neocons are clamoring for war - again:

Bill Kristol is not shy about his fetish for war. His latest piece at the neoconservative Weekly Standard borders on self-parody in the way that it openly longs for a return to a time when Americans were eager to send the U.S. military off on unnecessary, imperialistic adventures.

Kristol is frustrated by the “war-weariness” of the nation. He laments the reluctance on the part of the Republican Party to “challenge” “the idol of war-weariness.”

“A war-weary public can be awakened and rallied,” Kristol cheers. “Indeed, events are right now doing the awakening. All that’s needed is the rallying. And the turnaround can be fast.”

People like Kristol are so blinded by ideology that they breach the etiquette which calls on elite commentators to camouflage their enthusiasm for war with superficial appeals to peace. He loves death and destruction and wars of choice and he doesn’t care who knows it!
True to their Trotskyite core beliefs, Neocons seek to globalize the world under their rule. They know they cannot do this without the brute force of big government. And nothing grows big government like continuous war.

Evident in Kristol's rant against Americans' "war-weariness" is his realization that loyalty to the crusading DC Empire is fading fast. Few are cheering on "our" troops to deploy in the name of the "global democratic revolution." For many decades, our handlers in DC have been pulling our strings to reconstruct us into willing subjects of a polyglot empire. But human beings aren't wired to strive and sacrifice for airy ideals. Our allegiance is to our own people and traditions, not to all peoples in all nations.

All loyalty is local. The resurgence of historical loyalties all around the world confirms that. No wonder Bill Kristol's worried.

Thanks, Barack!

This starts as just another rant from a young person disillusioned with BHO, but at 2:45, it gets REAL interesting. President Obama's continuation and expansion of the same Bush policies that candidate Obama campaigned against opened her eyes to the fact that the real problem is the federal government. It doesn't matter which party is in power; globalist corporations and an oppressive, parasitical bureaucracy always win.

Until now. So let's join the young lady in this video: "Thanks, Barack!"

FLASHBACK: February Poll Showed Just 41% of Crimeans Wanted to Join Russia

97% of voters now support secession from Ukraine. The world is a-changin', ain't it?

League of the South press release on Crimean secession

For immediate release

The League of the South, the premier Southern Nationalist organization, supports the people of Crimea in their legitimate vote in favor of secession from Ukraine.

“The principle of self-determination of nations,” said League President Michael Hill, “is the basis for the survival, well being, and independence of distinct peoples around the world. Secession from Ukraine and subsequent alliance with the Russian Federation is what the people of Crimea wanted, and it was expressed by an overwhelming vote at the polls.”

The League encourages the USA regime to keep out of affairs that are none of its business. Hill continued: “Washington, DC, is inserting itself into a matter that should be of concern only to the peoples of Russian, Crimea, and Ukraine. By doing so, it makes itself once again the enemy of the self-determination of nations and the friend of consolidation and tyranny. We Southerners were the first to feel the boot heel of American centralization in 1865, and we understand why the rest of the world sees Uncle Sam as a self-interested meddler.”

The League seeks the survival, well being, and independence of the Southern people and in turn wishes to see that blessing granted to all distinct, historic peoples of the world. In turn, The League opposes the global elites that seek to destroy traditional nations and cultures in the name of global democracy and liberal principles.

Elephants Can Tell Sex, Ethnicity in Human Voices

Elephants somehow seem to have overcome their political correctness indoctrination:

African elephants can differentiate between human languages and move away from those considered a threat, a skill they have honed to survive in the wild, researchers said.

The study suggests elephants, already known to be intelligent creatures, are even more sophisticated than previously believed when it comes to understanding human dangers.
There's a good reason elephants have learned to distinguish between different ethnic groups and sexes:

Some of the voices were from local Maasai men, a group that herds cattle and sometimes comes into conflict with elephants over access to water and grazing space. Occasionally, elephants are killed in clashes with Maasai men, and vice-versa.

Other recorded voices were from Kamba men, who tend to be farmers or employees of the national park, and who rarely represent a danger to elephants.

Still other voices tested on the elephants included female Maasai speakers and young boys. ...

When elephants heard the adult male Maasai voices, they tended to gather together, start investigative smelling with their trunks, and move cautiously away.

But when elephants heard females, boys, or adult male Kamba speakers, they did not show concern.
I wonder how long until the EEOC brings elephants to trial for their blatant discrimination and racial profiling? Stay tuned.

Paleo literature.

Tadeusz Korzeniewski was born in Poland. In 1977-80 he took part in the movement fighting the Communist/Russian suppression of Poland. He wrote a book W Polsce (In Poland), which was published in 1981 by the underground, and in 1983 in an émigré publishing house in England. In 1984 it was awarded the Koscielski Prize. In 2010 it was republished in post-Communist Poland. In 1981 he moved from Poland to France and then on to New York then Montana and then Seattle. In 1990 he wrote a novella in English, for which he received a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1991 the Ucross Foundation invited him to Wyoming. While on a ranch there, he conceived a story of a culture-drifter riding outlaw trail in the contemporary American Northwest.

In 1991-1998 he traveled across the northern America. In 2013 he published a book in Poland, Do Wyoming, addressed to ethnic Poles. The English version of the book, To Wyoming, is made for ethnic Europeans.

To Wyoming is available at Amazon at a special price for readers of Rebellion.

Jubilation in Crimea After Secession Vote

Yes, "jubilation" is the term ABC News uses to describe the mood in Crimea, which overwhelmingly voted to leave Ukraine. Wouldn't it be nice to live in a country where you get to choose who governs you? We'd be "jubilant," too, if we had the right to hold a referendum on secession. Ah, well...

On the positive side, we see that the news from Crimea has sparked other independence movements.

A free Venice? It's possible we could see the resurgence of the Venetian Republic. Meanwhile, in Scotland and Quebec, excitement and anticipation about growing support for independence encourages proponents ... and who know where else this rising tide of self-determination will be felt?

From www.ncwbts150.com

This is a unique memorial of 125,000 Red Spruce trees -- one for each North Carolina soldier who served in the Confederate armies 1861-1865 – were provided by the North Carolina Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1940, and planted over 125 acres in Haywood County in Pisgah National Forest by the Forest Service from 1941 to 1943. The memorial runs along the Blue Ridge Parkway for a half-mile near mile marker 422.

The inscription reads: “The United Daughters of the Confederacy in cooperation with the United States Forestry Service planted this 125 acre forest as a living memorial to the 125,000 soldiers North Carolina provided the Confederacy. The 125,000 Red Spruce tree forest was planted over a three –year period, 1941-1943.”

The Memorial Forest was dedicated August 11, 1956; Re-dedicated by the United Daughters of the Confederacy and Sons of Confederate Veterans, August 11, 2001.

Raleigh publisher and former Navy Secretary Josephus Daniels spoke at the Vanderbilt Hotel memorial dedication ceremony in Asheville in July 1942, comparing the cruel postwar Reconstruction the American South endured to the plight of Nazi-occupied European countries during World War II. Daniels stated that “The Southern people, aided by noble patriots in the North, overcame military rule and regained control of their affairs. They have no doubt the suffering European nations will throw off [Nazi] rule by force and once again order their own way of life.”

Today the Red Spruce trees are well-over 50 feet tall and stand proudly as a testament and living memorial to the 125,000 North Carolinians who defended their families, homes, farms, State and country from enemy invasion – 40,000 of whom paid with their lives the ultimate sacrifice of the patriot.

Study: SPLC Ignores Leftist Hate and Extremism

Heck, we could've told you the Southern Poverty Law Center is biased. But it sounds better coming from an academic type:

Professor George Yancey of the University of North Texas says he is not arguing one way or the other about FRC’s inclusion on the list but merely demonstrating SPLC’s outrage is subjective, selective, and never reckons progressive groups guilty of the same things of which it accuses conservative ones.
Another once-sacred cow is getting gored. Love it!

The power of state and tank has paled

You know you're really winning when your opponent says so.

David Brooks is your typical big-government, national-greatness "conservative." He boosted the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan as bold experiments in exporting Western-style democracy. He has since come to regret those "experiments."

These days, Brooks notes, Americans no longer believe in interventionism. And it's not just a reaction to the failed Neocon Wars he cheered on (from a safe distance), but a deeper reaction against the interventionist megastate. He doesn't like it, but he can't deny this new attitude is sweeping America and the rest of the world:

The Cold War was a competition between clearly defined nation-states.

Commanding American leaders created a liberal international order. They preserved that order with fleets that roamed the seas, armies stationed around the world and diplomatic skill.

Over the ensuing decades, that faith in big units has eroded — in all spheres of life. Management hierarchies have been flattened. Today people are more likely to believe that history is driven by people gathering in the squares and not from the top down. The liberal order is not a single system organized and defended by American military strength; it’s a spontaneous network of direct people-to-people contacts, flowing along the arteries of the Internet.

The real power in the world is not military or political. It is the power of individuals to withdraw their consent. In an age of global markets and global media, the power of the state and the tank, it is thought, can pale before the power of the swarms of individuals.
Small is not only now seen as beautiful, but as more efficient, prosperous, and peaceful than the oversized, over-centralized welfare-warfare state of the 19th and 20th centuries. All over the world, large nations are collapsing, and reconfiguring themselves into smaller, culture-based political units.

Know hope, my friends.

Hate crime alert!

Call the SPLC! An elected official in Chester, South Carolina, threatened the city's black police chief and called him a racial epithet - presumably, the dreaded "n" word. Eek!

And since that kind of behavior would get any other elected official denounced and fired, we think the same should happen in this case, too. Just because the elected official is also black, we have to uphold "zero tolerance" for racial epithets.

Quote of the day

“I’m very optimistic about the power of minorities to change the dialogue in this country.” Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor

This day in history

In 1861, the Confederate States of America adopted its constitution.

In 1990, Lithuania declared its independence from the Soviet Union.

As well as sharing the same date, both of these events were condemned by Marxist historian Eric Foner. Wonder what Comrade Foner thinks about the current rise of secessionism? Heh.

Southern Poverty Law Center's Criteria for Naming 'Hate Groups' Subpoenaed

Members of the corporate media may swallow everything the SPLC dishes out, but some folks actually question authority. Eugene Delgaudio is a supervisor in Loudoun County, Virginia. There's an effort to have him removed from office because he's a member of Public Advocate, a conservative Christian organization that defends traditional marriage. The SPLC (surprise!) has issued a fatwa against that group. But instead of buckling under and begging forgiveness, which is what the SPLC's victims are supposed to do, Degaudio's fighting back, and how:

A local official in Virginia has subpoenaed the Montgomery, Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the SPLC Task Force on Hate in the Public Sphere for the criteria it uses to designate other organizations as “hate groups.”

The subpoenas were filed February 28th in Loudoun County Circuit Court. They request “all written criteria, guidelines, bylaws or rules used by Southern Poverty Law Center to designate organizations or groups as ‘hate groups’ from the inception of the Southern Poverty Law Center to the present date.”
It does a body good to see a man fight bullies. And as the article demonstrates, the SPLC is a very powerful, politically connected bully:

CNSNews.com previously reported that the Department of Defense will continue to use SPLC as a training resource even after the Family Research Council (FRC) and other conservative organizations complained that it targeted them as “hate groups” because they defended traditional values on marriage and other moral issues.
Go get 'em, Mr. Degaudio!

Parents intend to sue school board

It drives me nuts to talk to housebroken "conservatives" who think government-run schools are a right up there with the right to free speech and to bear arms. I remind them that these schools are nothing more than socialized education AT BEST, and AT WORST, indoctrination centers for creating loyal subjects.

Frustrated that their alleged "representatives" on the school board approved a disruptive school reassignment plan, parents in Union County, North Carolina, are now resorting to a costly, drawn-out lawsuit. I wish them the best of luck, because their motivations are good, but the only real answer is to privatize education. In the meantime, they should secede and home school their children. Who knows? The kids might not only learn more, but might even grow closer to their families. (Which is why the government loathes home schools.)

Russian flags flood Crimean capital as thousands back takeover

Hmm...I wonder how that Crimean secession referendum will go on March 16? I wonder...

Obama gets advice on how to out-macho Putin

SNL skewers Obama on Crimean secession, Iraq, and his flaming metrosexuality. The hypocrisy of the DC regime is now the butt of jokes.

Quote of the day

"My whole life I've heard Republicans hate black people. I've never seen any evidence of it until I read Marco Rubio's amnesty bill. Who gets hurt the most by amnesty, by continuing these immigration policies? It is low-wage workers, it is hispanics, it is blacks." Ann Coulter

The international hypocrite

Vox Day cites that notoriously "neo-Confederate" propaganda mill known as the New York Times on the explosive issue of secession in Crimea. The editorial writers at the Times are having a little difficulty making sense of Obama's opposition to a popular referendum on Crimea seceding from Ukraine:

Consider the different American views of recent bids for independence.

Chechnya? No.

East Timor? Yes.

Abkhazia? No.

South Sudan? Yes.

Palestine? It’s complicated.

It is an acutely delicate subject in the West, where Britain wants to keep Scotland and Spain wants to keep Catalonia.
To which Vox Day adds:

And the USA murdered hundreds of thousands in order to forcibly "keep the Union together" and deny the sovereign Southern States their right to self-determination. This has not escaped the attention of the world's second-rate powers, some of whom have indicated support for the Russian position.
What the ruling elite can't grasp is that the peoples of the world do not share their globalist vision. Crimea has a majority Russian population that does not want to be part of Ukraine. This is just one more problem caused by the anti-human policies of the old Soviet Union. And it wasn't just the Reds who violated natural borders; the West is largely to blame for the unnatural and unsustainable political lines drawn in Africa during colonial times. As the folks in Sudan recently made clear, those borders are being redefined by history and culture.

The lessons of this worldwide trend apply here, too. As our rulers in DC import a more docile population from the Third World, the actual result is not a flowering of diversity but a loss of identification and loyalty to the old American nation. Already, secession is gaining steam in America, and ethnic and racial divisions are openly recognized as the reason. No people anywhere in the world wants to be governed by others - self-determination is just another term for secession. So as DC continues to reconstruct the old America, look for REAL secession movements to arise here at home.

Quote of the day

"It's an incredible act of aggression. It is really a stunning, willful choice by President Putin to invade another country. You just don't in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped-up pretext." John Kerry

Because only The Indispensable Nation® can invade another country on a trumped-up pretext.

Ethnic diversity’s ‘inconvenient truths’

The Vancouver Sun scrutinizes the claims of the diversity cultists and concludes diversity does irreparable harm to society:

Are you engaged with your community? Or are you “hunkering down?”

Are you connecting with friends, volunteering or involved in politics? Or are you drawing into yourself, “like a turtle?”

Harvard sociologist Robert Putnam has completed an important study of more than 30,000 North Americans and concluded that – especially if you live in ethnically diverse cities such as Toronto, Vancouver or Los Angeles – it’s likely you are “hunkering down.”

That’s the colloquial phrase that Putnam, who has been an adviser to everyone from Bill Clinton and Tony Blair to the U.S. State Department and the World Bank, uses to describe the lack of trust he discovered among most North Americans in diverse urban settings.
As far as big business, big government, and Cultural Marxists are concerned, this isn't a defect of diversity, but a selling point. They want an atomized society where the individual has no bonds, no history, and no nurturing community. That makes the population easier to control and exploit.

Quote of the day

"His tax-gatherers crushed rich and poor alike; the wealth of a looted kingdom poured into Tarantia, which became less like the capital of a realm than the garrison of conquerors in a conquered land. Its merchants waxed rich, but it was a precarious prosperity; for none knew when he might be accused of treason on a trumped-up charge, and his property confiscated, himself cast into prison or brought to the bloody block." Robert E. Howard, from The Hour of the Dragon (Kindle Locations 2800-2802).

Howard's description of life under the tyrant Valerius sounds like the DC Empire.

Obama: Crimea’s Secession Referendum a Violation of International Law

DC's hypocrisy is on full display over the Crimean secession vote:

President Obama continues to express outrage at the idea of the Crimea seceding from the Ukraine, and today insisted that an impending referendum on whether Crimeans want to secede itself “violates international law.”
Remember how DC supported independence for the Muslim Kosavars in 2008, despite Serbia's forceful objections? But that was okay because the Kosavars were pro-DC. Ukraine is also part of the DC harem, so now secession suddenly violates something Obama calls "international law." Right.

Once again, DC's Temporary Dictator thinks he's King of the World and has the right to stick his nose anywhere he wants. Thing is, more and more Americans reject that view. Naturally, the parasites who live off big government don't like this trend. Michael Gerson, one of the most repulsive of the Empire's stable of cheerleaders, has this to say about Americans' plummeting support for US intervention:

In the 20th century, the United States was both unique and irreplaceable because it exercised great power without the blood-and-soil nationalism of Russia, Germany or Japan. It stood for universal, liberal, democratic ideals. We should not expect those humane ideals to thrive in the vacuum left by a retreating America.
But DC's actions show it's motivated by its own self-interest rather than the airy "universal ideals" it uses to justify its wars. And people are starting to notice.

Tick-tock...

How brainless must one be to get into CPAC?

From the look of things, I'd say "totally." Read this report from National Review (where else?) and judge for yourself:

Two participants in a panel on immigration at CPAC today expressed confidence in their closing statements that Hispanic immigrants will be a source of future votes for the Republican party. “Latino voters are the Regan Democrats of today,” said Alfonso Aguilar, the executive director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles. “I believe that the majority of them can actually be members of CPAC in the future,” concurred the Reverend Luis Cortés Jr.​
This feeds on the narcissistic notion that inside every foreigner is an American trying to get out. W the Conqueror tapped into that mythology when he unleashed his armed forces to liberate Iraq and Afghanistan. He assured Americans that the people of those two Muslim countries would magically transform into grateful allies and would soon be holding democratic elections. Yeah.

Iraq and Afghanistan were monumental failures, but will be relatively inconsequential compared to the importation of millions of Latino immigrants. Here's what I've said before about this dumb idea:

Both of the "mainstream" political parties in Mexico are members of the Socialist International. Only a Republican would be dumb enough to imagine Mexicans will magically transform into a conservative constituency.
And check out this graphic many Republicans are bandying about the Internet:

In other words, Republicans can be even more obnoxiously "anti-racist" than Democrats, and they're proud of it! So when they scream "anti-Semite!" at anyone who questions DC's unthinking support of every Israeli whim, they're implying that anyone who disagrees is the real "racist."

The bottom line, however, is that you cannot defeat an enemy when you adopt his values. The "anti-racist" cosmopolitanism Republicans are pushing is the opposite of preserving tradition. Whether it's supporting amnesty for illegal aliens or cheering on the national security apparatus, these "conservative" Republicans are digging their own graves. Problem is, they're digging them wide enough to make room for a lot of us, too.

Obama: Crimea referendum violates law

Obama is right: If people are permitted to choose their own government - and the very THOUGHT just sends shivers down the spines of all right-thinking people - where will that lead us? Why, it would be - messy, that's what! Order must be maintained - at any price!

In case you haven't noticed, things are getting REAL interesting ...

Americans Overwhelmingly Oppose US Intervention in Ukraine

More good news:

According to a YouGov poll conducted this week, only 14 percent of Americans said the U.S. has “any responsibility” to get involved in Ukraine, and only 18 percent think the U.S. “has any responsibility to protect Ukraine if Russia were to invade”

“Americans are more likely than not to say that the United States has no responsibility to get involved in Ukraine even under extreme circumstances, the new survey shows,” the Huffington Post reports. “Pluralities of Democrats, Republicans and independents agreed that the U.S. does not have a responsibility to protect Ukraine.”
Don't you know the ruling class hates stories like this? Heh.

Crimea’s Parliament Decides to Secede to Russia

As we were saying just yesterday, the world political map is in flux. Always has been. Always will be. Crimea, which was made a part of Ukraine during the Soviet years, seems headed for union with its Russian compatriots:

The parliament of Crimea, a majority ethnic Russian region within Ukraine, decided Thursday to secede from the country and become part of Russia, according to a statement on its website.

A popular vote to approve the decision or restore the 1992 Crimean Constitution, whereby the peninsula would remain an autonomous republic within Ukraine, is scheduled for March 16, the statement said.
March 16? These folks aren't wasting any time.

Texas Independence Day Highlights State’s Ongoing Secession Efforts

Here's a vivid example of the power of celebrating history. Looks like Texan secession is picking up steam, according to this report from CBS News:

As Texas celebrated its annual “Texas Independence Day,” many in the state’s government leadership and ongoing secession movement say Texas is finally preparing to become an “independent nation.” ...

But recent rhetoric from anti-tax Tea Partiers, libertarians and state officials alike suggests that the secession movement may be moving a step beyond parties and re-enactments.

Texas Attorney General candidate Barry Smitherman has openly expressed the possibility of Texas secession.

“Generally speaking, we have made great progress in becoming an independent nation, an ‘island nation’ if you will, and I think we want to continue down that path so that if the rest of the country falls apart, Texas can operate as a stand-alone entity with energy, food, water and roads as if we were a closed-loop system,” Smitherman said.

Candidate for Texas governor, Larry Kilgore, recently wrote that he believes a “U.S. economic collapse cannot be avoided,” and the best solution would be for “Texas needs to secede now or we will sink too.”
Leftists and empire worshipers will tell you it can't happen. But if they'd spend five minutes with any world history book, they'd realize the sun finally set on the "eternal" British, Spanish, and Soviet empires. Talk of an “indissoluble” or "indestructible" union is just that, talk. Political forms come and go, and no one can deny that we're in an age of secession. In 1900 there were only 57 independent nations. Today there are 196.

Looks like a trend to me. And it's so big, even CBS News can't ignore it. Know hope.

Anti-gun insanity in Jew Jersey

The New Jersey legislature is actually considering a bill that would make owners of many .22 rifles criminals:

New Jersey has become ground zero this year for legislative battles over gun control.

The Brady Campaign ranked the state third in the nation for most restrictive firearms laws, yet anti-gun Democrats who control the legislature are determined to go all the way to gun bans and confiscation.

The New Jersey Assembly’s Law and Public Safety Committee was scheduled to hold a public hearing on Monday (postponed for snow) about a bill that reduces the maximum magazine capacity from 15 to 10.

Since the legislation covers both detachable and fixed magazines, it has the effect of to banning popular, low-caliber rifles.
Of course, the rational way to deal with gun crime is to vigorously prosecute those who commit crime. Instead, New Jersey is going after law-abiding gun owners. Now that's Jersey Dumb.

A Solution to Gay Wedding Cakes

It's simple, says Jonathon Moseley - just turn the tables:

All across the nation, we need conservative activists with a little funds to launch the following campaign:

(1) Search for left-leaning or homosexual-wedding-friendly bakeries, florists, photographers, etc.

(2) Approach those bakers to bake cakes with conservative or Christian messages or photographers to photograph right-wing political conferences, conventions, or events.

For example, order a sheet cake for church or an event (maybe a party) with Christian messages or scriptures such as “Children need a mother and a father” or “Marriage is one man and one woman.” Or: John 3:3 “You must be born again” or “Jesus is Lord.”
Ha!

Secession Movement Gains Steam

The winds of change are a-blowin'. While it may be true folks are only debating secession from a State, just raising the issue will unleash ideas the powers that be cannot stop:

If you mention the word "secession" most people think of the South during the Civil War. But today, a new movement is gaining steam because of frustration over a growing, out-of-control federal government.

A number of conservative, rural Americans are taking about seceding and creating their own states ...
As the article explains, the growing divide is between both left vs. right and urban vs. rural. But I see even greater rifts building as DC continues to self-destruct from imperial overstretch. At some point, REAL secession movements will spring up as people freely self-organize around shared cultures.

Tick-tock ...

Quote of the day

"We are not really having an argument about same-sex marriage anymore, and on the evidence of Arizona, we’re not having a negotiation. Instead, all that’s left is the timing of the final victory — and for the defeated to find out what settlement the victors will impose." Ross Douthat

Kentucky will appeal federal judge's same-sex "marriage" order

A minion of DC usurps State authority over the regulation of marriage and overrules the express will of the people - 75% of Kentucky voters approved the amendment to their constitution protecting traditional marriage. What to do? Why, ask the Great and Powerful Oz for help, of course. Yes, that's the answer. Governor Beshear will beg DC to respect Kentucky's right to self-government:

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear said Tuesday that he will appeal a federal judge's order requiring Kentucky to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

The definition of marriage in Kentucky and other states "will be and should be ultimately decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in order to bring finality and certainty to this matter," Beshear said in a statement. "The people of this country need to know what the rules will be going forward. Kentucky should be a part of this process."
Words fail me here. If you concede that an arm of the central government has the final say, you've already surrendered. So why pretend to fight?

Tea Party rejects Ukraine intervention

We've watched the Tea Party groping in the dark for a way forward to advance liberty, and frankly, we haven't been too impressed. They have stumbled in the past, and have sometimes even fed the monster they're supposed to oppose. Still, we have been hopeful.

Once again, there are positive signs from the Tea Partiers. In this article, two of their leaders come out firmly against sticking our noses into the Ukrainian brouhaha, all too aware that the powers that be are itching for another war:

Do you understand these events well enough to decide who is in the right? Neither do we. Nor do the same talking heads who promised, a decade ago, that bringing democracy to Iraq would be a “cakewalk,” which would “fund itself” through the oil revenues of a new, pro-American government presiding peacefully from Baghdad.

Eleven years, thousands of American lives and trillions of dollars later, Iraq is still a shattered and bloody “failed state” – and “experts” such as William Kristol and John McCain, who helped to promote that war, are somehow still taken seriously.
We must refuse to support this war not merely to spite the traitors and globalists in DC, but because war is the lifeblood of the Empire. The bigger and stronger we allow the monster to grow, the more it will oppress us. DC has mutated into a ravenous monster that is aggressive abroad and despotic at home. Do not feed!

Bay Area Ukrainians Urge U.S. to Intervene With Russia

Here's one consequence of DC's open borders policy many probably haven't considered: No matter where trouble brews on the planet, there will be a group from the troubled area demanding U.S. military intervention. So it's no surprise we have Ukrainians protesting in favor of intervening in Crimea.

Meanwhile, in Mordor on the Potomac, both Democrats and Republicans have chimed in on the one thing they both agree on, and that's perpetual war.

Reality in the news, ctd.

WW III may be percolating at this very moment. Putin's occupation of Crimea, where the Russian Navy maintains its Black Sea bases, could trigger retaliation from NATO. Senator John "Yosemite Sam" McCain, who thinks war is the answer to everything, is giddy with anticipation of US forces invading yet another country most Americans really don't give a hoot about.

This crisis is just the latest mess the world must deal with as a result of that "great experiment" known as the Soviet Union. Not only did the communists in power outlaw private property, they also dismissed nationalism as another relic of the past that would be swept away by the modernizing tide of scientific socialism. Crimea was part of Russia since 1783, and Russians are the majority there. But in 1954, as a gesture of good will, Nikita Khrushchev redrew the map and made Crimea part of the Ukraine. After all, socialism, being the inevitable force that it was, would eventually erase all borders, uniting the world proletariat by their economic interests. Borders no longer mattered.

But human nature is a stubborn thing. Private property is not only a basic right, but a biological drive. So is loyalty to one's own people. "Scientific socialism" collapsed despite decades of propaganda and attempts to impose it by brute force. So the crisis in the Crimea is the direct result of pretending borders don't matter. They do, and how.

Meanwhile, here in the DC Empire, our smug rulers are imposing multiculturalism and open borders on an unwilling population. Seeds are being sown that will bear a bitter harvest. When the inevitable crashes down on our heads, it will be the fault of those who made disastrous decisions in their own "great experiment." The aftermath of the old Soviet empire holds some hard lessons for us, so we better start paying attention. Call it a free preview of things to come.

Reality in the news

Ever since the DC ruling elite adopted equality as their official ideology, Americans have been forced to pretend they believe in it. Any perceived differences based on biology, whether sexual or racial, are dismissed as the products of "social constructs." In other words, we're supposed to believe that all apparent inequality comes from entrenched cultural attitudes that need only be eliminated by re-education.

Problem is, reality has a nasty way of getting back at those who ignore it. Here's just one example: In 1972, DC issued an edict proclaiming females are just as interested in and capable of participating in sports as males. In response to this edict, American schools were forced to open up competitive sports to girls, and girls were encouraged to do anything and everything boys did.

Problem is, girls playing soccer and other sports are unwittingly inflicting damage on pelvises not designed for intense, strenuous activity. Doctors are seeing unusual numbers of teenage girls complaining of hip pain. Oops!

Could be that's why tradition, which is based on countless generations of experience, protected the fair sex from things such as rough sports and combat. Just maybe.

Texas Independence Day!

Texas Independence Day is the celebration of the adoption of the Texas Declaration of Independence on March 2, 1836. With this document signed by 59 people, settlers in Mexican Texas officially broke from Mexico creating the Republic of Texas. Texas Independence Day is an official holiday in the state of Texas.

With a rogue central government that's burying us in debt, sparking new wars, and denying our right of self-government, it's time to quit viewing Texas Independence Day as a celebration of past heroes, and instead see it as a call for new heroes.

For more on Texas Independence Day, check out the Celebrate Texas! web site.
