This is Missouri, Folks

….And not some 3rd world country. Though you would be justified in believing that.

It all happened yesterday, after Darren Wilson was acquitted of charges for shooting an 18-year old black youth after he had just robbed a convenience store. The media was quick to jump to the scene, and black solidarity was proclaimed against the Ferguson Police. Now, however, a jury simply stated that there is no evidence to indict Officer Wilson on any of the five charges laid against him.

As expected, the Ferguson mob wouldn’t let a good opportunity go to waste. Ben Kesling of the Wall Street Journal noted that

“Peaceful protests…quickly gave way to looting and arson.”

One CBS news anchor even seemed to fear for his life while covering the mob, er, “protestors for justice.”

Chief of Police Jon Belmar gave a grim picture: “I’ll be honest with you: Unless we bring 10,000 policemen in here, I don’t think we can prevent folks who really are intent on destroying a community.” To some degree, it reminds one of the 1963 Birmingham Riot.

In his masterful book, Orthodoxy, G.K. Chesterton answers those who empathize with the Looters of Ferguson. In the chapter Romance of Orthodoxy he states simply that “evil is a matter of active choice.” These people aren’t poor souls needing comfort. They’re a mob bent on evil and destruction.

The entire city is at stake.

This section of Missouri has become a cesspool looked down on by not only the rest of the South, but the world as well. The sad thing is that it’s due to outsiders and the lowest level of persons living there interfering in what was a cut-and-dried case. Thank the Lord for our system, eh?

Federal Judge Rules Against Alabama… Again

Federal Judges have once again struck down Alabamian law. This time it was against the “Alabama Women’s Health and Safety Act,” which required abortionists to have admitting privileges (like all other doctors) to local hospitals in order to perform abortions. Federal District Judge Myron Thompson not only halted the law by a lift of his finger, but insulted protestors opposed to his decision, crying that they “threaten economic destruction” and “violence” (amazing how a man promoting the disgusting practice of abortion harps against Christian sidewalk counselors like they are terrorists).

Federal Judge Myron Thompson cares nothing for Alabama.

Judge Thompson is a liberal poster child with a history of aggressiveness against Alabama and her people. Thompson was the second African judge to be appointed to his district, gaining that position in 1980 by way of Federal President Jimmy Carter. He has been lauded by liberals for his “rulings” which “dramatically changed how Alabama treats its employees and most vulnerable citizens.” Yellowhammer News calls Thompson “a long-time AEA ally who’s widely considered one of the most liberal judges in the state.” Thompson is best known for his ruling against Chief Justice Roy Moore in the 2002 case Glassroth v. Moore, which resulted in the removal of a Ten Commandments display from the Alabama Judicial Building.

In his typically weak-kneed counter, Governor Bentley said he was “extremely disappointed by today’s ruling.” While invoking the Sanctity of life, Gov. Bentley actually compromised on the issue, maintaining that abortions should only be done as a last possible effort to save the life of the mother.” In effect, rather than telling off the forces of evil and invoking both God and country (Alabama), the Governor has allowed the abortionists to “keep one foot in the door.” With abortion, there is no middle ground. It is never the answer.

Only leaders unafraid to answer their foes with clear, concise, and unflinching resolve will carry the day. Nullification, not subjugation, is the answer.

The South and the Hapsburgs

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the assassination of that Loyal Son of the Church, Archduke Franz Ferdinand. The House of Hapsburg (technically Hapsburg-Lorraine), as a ruling entity, would fail under the reign of Bl. Karl I four years later. While not obvious at first, the South does have connections to the Hapsburgs. It came during 1863, when Ferdinand Maximilian, younger brother to Kaiser Franz Joseph, accepted the crown offered him by Mexican nobles and the French Emperor Napoleon III. He ascended to the throne as Maximilian I, Emperor of Mexico.

MaximilianofMexico

Abraham Lincoln was well aware of the bulwark-that-could-be that was Mexico. Writing General Grant 3 months before Maximilian’s acceptance of the Mexican crown, Lincoln stated:

I see by a despatch of yours that you incline quite strongly towards an expedition against Mobile. This would appear tempting to me also, were it not that in view of recent events in Mexico, I am greatly impressed with the importance of re-establishing the national (Yankee) authority in Western Texas as soon as possible.

Maximilian, as one observer noted, had his sympathies (much like Bl. Pope Pius IX) with the South:

Maximilian expressed the warmest possible interest in the Confederate cause. He said he considered it identical with that of the new Mexican Empire … that he was particularly desirous that his sentiments upon this subject should be known to the Confederate President.

And Mexico would be a source trouble for the North-  not as great as it might have been, especially if the war had been prolonged, but still one that caused irritation for the Federals and limited refuge for the South. One liberal writer of the time stated that

… the Arch-duke Maximilian… firmly believes it is his divine mission to destroy the dragon of democracy and re-establish the true church, the Right Divine, and all sorts of games. Poor young man!

The nearness of an Imperial power, feuding with the Jacobin revolutionaries of the same cloth as Lincoln, could not be tolerated by the North. But the ongoing war of subjugation against the South and it’s Indian allies caused little action to be taken against Maximilian.

At our war’s end, Emperor Maximilian invited defeated Southerners to settle in Mexico. This group in the Confederate Diaspora included such individuals as the world-renown Commodore Matthew Maury and Generals Sterling Price and John B. Magruder.  These and others set up Southern enclaves in Mexico and readily served the Emperor, with General Magruder notably becoming a Major General in Maximilian’s army. Commodore Maury became a commissioner in the Imperial Service and was instrumental in creating the Carlotta Colony (near Veracruz) for Dixians.

HapsburgConfederates

 

But with the fall of one enemy, the Yankees, “a traditionless and a homeless race,” began to look towards new conquests. Their icy stare met the Empire of Mexico, which flew in the face of the egalitarian and Jacobin principles.  As the official U.S. Department of State almost proudly notes,

As the Confederacy collapsed, U.S. leaders were able to shift resources to resisting French intervention in Mexico and to deploy troops along the Texas-Mexico border. …

U.S. Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Philip Henry Sheridan…. began covert support of Juárez along the Texas-Mexico border. By then, the intervention in Mexico had grown unpopular with the French public, and was an increasing drain on the French treasury. On January 31, 1866, Napoleon III ordered the withdrawal of French troops, to be conducted in three stages from November 1866 to November 1867. Seward, who had earlier been more cautious, warned the Austrian Government against replacing French troops with its own forces, and the threat of war convinced the Austrian government to refrain from sending Maximilian reinforcements. Without European support, Maximilian was unable to retain power. His capture by Mexican forces, court-martial, and sentence to be executed, marked the end of direct European intervention in Mexico. Seward hoped that U.S. support for Juárez would improve relations with Mexico, but as part of Seward’s broader strategy of U.S. expansion, he hoped that the improved relations would eventually convince Mexico to join the United States.

Laurens-Maximilian-Mexico

That Juarez and Lincoln were similar there is no doubt. Some have even hailed Juarez as the “Mexican Lincoln,” the defender of democracy, liberty, and consolidation. Throughout the struggle the Yankee government continued to recognise the liberal Republicans as being legitimate and covertly supplied them with arms. As Texas was conquered, Federal troops were brought to the border as a show of might to frighten the French into retreat. With a looming American-Franco War, Napoleon III did just that and withdrew his forces from Mexico.

 

Those Southerners which did not flee following the French withdrawal met sad fates, as was the case of the Tuxpan Colony. A settlement of a few hundred, it was summarily destroyed by the U.S.-backed Republican forces following the murder of the Emperor Maximilian:

       The colony was destroyed almost overnight. The air thick with dust and smoke, the flames from their huts leaping skyward, the gunfire deafening them, Tuxpan’s terrified immigrants attempted escape by sea. With few weapons, supplies, and practically no earthworks, the Tuxpan colonist grimly dug hasty defenses along the beaches. Their only hope was to put up a delaying action while they prepared an escape in their pest-ridden, leaky old scows. The situation became progressively more desperate. Some of the boats on which the Confederates hoped to escape were captured by hostile natives who put the colonists to the torch and threw their corpses into the ocean.

 

John Foster, in his “Maximilian and his Mexican Empire,” illustrates Yankee-thought on the Hapsburg Mexican Empire. It can be quickly summed up as, “democracy is good, kings are bad, and the United States is the ‘City on a Hill.'” Interestingly, he does provide insight into what possibly could have been, and what indeed did occur:

There was only one possible contingency which could have made the Maximilian Empire a success, and that was the triumph of the Southern Confederacy and an alliance offensive and defensive between these two new governments, supported by their active sympathy of the European monarchies. But fortunately the Southern rebellion and the European intervention were disastrous failures, and the two sister republics, emerging from the terrible conflict of fire and blood, have each placed in the foundation principles of their governmental edifice a corner-stone omitted by the patriots who gained their independence and which brought untold evils upon their descendents, freedom to the slave and religious enfranchisement to the citizen.

Should the South ever embrace monarchy as a form of government, it need look no further than that loyal and noble line that is the House of Hapsburg.

 

Is the Fed Really That Incompetent?

CrazyYankeesSign

Possible Jihadist converts are praised, secession is scorned, and now convicted terrorists are being freed. It’s all part of the norm for the United States of Yankee America:

One al Qaeda suspect captured in Afghanistan is considered reformed because he took up yoga and read a biography of the Dalai Lama. Another is eligible for release because of his “positive attitude.”

And one longtime detainee, a former bodyguard for Osama bin Laden, is now harmless because he’s going to start a “milk and honey farm.”

The Periodic Review Board already helped clear 78 of the remaining 149 prisoners (of Gitmo) for release, documents show, and has scheduled more hearings for this summer.

No matter. The Fed can just exchange a few more top-notch terrorists for someone who is most likely a Jihadist convert. Bowe Bergdhal’s father has made many interesting remarks which seem to confirm just that. Pat Buchanan raises another question- if these persons were convicted terrorists (and not what the SPLC defines them as, but actual bomb-blowing and baby-killing murderers), why have they not been executed? Is the Fed too busy killing newly-wed Yemenis with drones to actually carry out justice on captured terrorists?

The wonderful Federal immigration system is also adding to the danger. Besides killing the culture that’s already here, it may serve as a weapon in the ambitions of the Jihadists:

The Texas Department of Public Safety informed the San Antonio Division Joint Terrorism Task Force that individuals of Middle Eastern descent are obtaining new Texas driver’s licenses with Hispanic surnames.

The irony is that most of these terrorists would have little opportunity to enter the States except for ludicrous immigration policies. The armament of Jihadists overseas to topple leaders like Assad and Mubarak have also shown the Yankee stupidity. These same Jihadists not only establish oppressive Islamic states, but spill over into new regions, destabilising that area even further.

So the cycle, spurred on by chaotic Federal ambition and bumbling, continues.

 

Detractors say that an independent Alabama would be a joke, ineffective and impotent. But any Southerner knows that we can do much, much better.

Islamists to Build School, Mosque in West Mobile

The Prophet is coming to Mobile. A proposed Mosque/school will soon be placed in West Mobile, near the campus of the University of South Alabama. The move has rightly alarmed some residents of the area, but the local council has decided to allow the building to proceed.

It is doubtful that Southerners will attend an Islamic school, so the Mosque/school will surly rely on transplants from elsewhere to sustain themselves. This means an even bigger wedge in Southerners’ attempts to restrict immigration, especially that from third word countries, where the bulk of Moslems reside.

More importantly, the Mohammedians bring with them a religion and mind-set that is completely hostile to Christendom. Alabama was firstly a Catholic state, where French missionaries carved out Christian holdings from Dauphin Island to Wetumpka. Mobile served as the hub for Catholicism in the Deep South well into the establishment of New Orleans. Many martyrs, especially the Jesuits, were made in the conversions of the native tribes.  Are their sacrifices to have been made in vain? Will the foundation of Alabama be undermined by Islam and all it’s false teachings? Is this the first step to dhimmitude? Will Alabamians become the new Copts and Assyrians, destined to live under the oppressive heel of Muhammadanism in our own homeland?

We must stand up and oppose this.

Morning in Montgomery

Following the removal of the ‘SECEDE’ sign, St. Andrew’s News took the opportunity to visit Montgomery, our Capitol. Despite all the misfortune that has befallen it, it still remains a very handsome city, specifically in the downtown government and river districts. The Museum of Alabama, also known as the Archives, has many wonderful collections on display in a very grande building.

More articles displayed from the early Spanish and French would have been appreciated, but limited space probably forbids.

A real treat- William Lowndes Yancey’s pistol, gloves, wallet, and sash displayed to the public. The museum did a fair job of having the fire-eater’s concerns represented.

The two sashes read: “The Union with the Constitution – not without,” and “We honor and love Hon. W. L. Yancey, the Defender of the South.”

Montgomery ‘SECEDE’ Sign Showdown

SECEDEsignshowdown

The League ‘Secede’ billboard in our Capitol has been the centre of a controversy. The sign, erected after the Alabama League of the South’s protest against the SPLC’s war on marriage, was removed after only two days due to “complaints” by individuals. Southern Nationalist Network, the prime Southron media outlet, has been steadily reporting on the events surrounding the ‘SECEDE’ sign. Harold Crews, a Carolinian attorney and head of the NC League of the South, says the move shows that Southerners are now being treated as “second class citizens” in our own homelands.

Lamar Advertising, a Baton Rouge, LA company, is responsible for removing the billboard. They put an identical billboard up for the Florida LoS’s demonstration with no difficulty.

Lamar recently posted an update on Facebook, stating that:

We have received your comments about the recent billboard copy that was taken down in Montgomery. We are investigating the situation and will be in touch when we know more.

Complaints by Southern Nationalists and a petition to restore the billboard seem to be gaining ground, especially as media coverage increases.
