It was a sweltering hot July day in 1863 at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The Unions Army of the Potomac and heretofore never defeated Confederate Army of Northern Virginia had been locked for the previous two days in what is still the bloodiest battle in America’s history. On the first day, the Army of Northern Virginia had missed a golden opportunity to take the battlefield stronghold on Cemetery Ridge from the soundly beaten and demoralized Army of the Potomac when the normally aggressive General Richard Ewell inexplicably chose not to attack.
Now the Union army was firmly entrenched all along the ridgeline. General Robert E. Lee, arguably the greatest military strategist since Napoleon himself, decided the enemy position was vulnerable at a low point in the ridge. His Union opponent General George Meade had anticipated this and made it known to his subordinates in a war council the night before.
At two o’clock that afternoon, Lee gave the order to his right-hand man General James Longstreet to attack. Longstreet had been opposed to the attack from the beginning and been urging Lee to execute a flanking maneuver that would force the Army of the Potomac to withdraw from its position on the ridge in order to protect Washington DC.
With a nod, because he could not bring himself to speak the terrible command, Longstreet gave the order to General George Pickett. Twelve thousand five hundred men advanced over three-quarters of a mile on undulating open terrain in a line that began over a mile long into a hailstorm of metal.
Although the Confederates had pounded the Union position for over an hour with almost a hundred and seventy heavy cannons, their fire had been ineffective, and Longstreet knew it. The line of advancing men would shrink to a half-mile as they closed ranks around their fallen comrades. Only half the men would make it, some even taking the position, only in their weakened strength to be driven off it by a Union counterattack. Their furthest point of advance would come to be known as the High Water Mark of the Confederacy.
The Confederates would never recover. Until what has become known as Pickett’s Charge, they had been winning the Civil War handily. The Battle of Gettysburg was their coup de grace; an invasion of the North. If they had emerged from it victorious, as all logic says they should have, there was nothing to stop them from sacking Philadelphia and forcing the Union to sue for peace.
Lee, who had previously been labeled by other generals as ‘The King of Spades’ because of his penchant for digging fortified entrenchments to preserve the lives of his men, had recklessly squandered the cream of Southern manhood by launching a suicidal assault on an opponent of equal strength in a heavily fortified position. Military historians still struggle attempting to explain the great general’s violation of the first rule of tactics, which long ago had been established by Prussian military theorist Carl von Clausewitz that such a position may only be assaulted when the attacker has at least a two to one numerical superiority.
Instead of the Union begging the Confederacy for peace President Abraham Lincoln, who had done everything he could to instigate the war short of fighting in it himself, like a vulture made a crowing political speech over the rotting corpses of the men who died there. The speech would come to be known as the Gettysburg Address. It made the war about something it never was; freeing the slaves. Almost none of the valiant men who died there even owned slaves and Ewell had been lobbying Jefferson Davis, the president of the South, to free them anyway because he needed more men to fight in the Souths badly outnumbered army.
No one with a fully functional brain who hasn’t been indoctrinated on the divisive rhetoric of their own hidden masters believes the South would not have freed their slaves within ten years. They certainly would not have promised them forty acres and a mule then reneged in order to force them into rapidly industrializing cities to work in an alien environment in the sweatshops of oligarchs for a quarter of the pay the White man would get. The Black ghettos of New York, Detroit, Philadelphia and all the rest of the Northern cities bear mute but irrefutable testimony that this is exactly what the North did with the slaves it “freed,” despite the endless prattling of useful idiot academics…
The men from the Army of Northern Virginia who perished that hot July day knowingly marching right into the maw of death were by the very definition of the word heroes. But history is written only by the victor, and in this case, the victor was an avaricious empire that had begun centuries before on the filthy streets of London. The Spanish American War, whereby the empire would absorb the Spanish Empire, World War one and two, whereby the empire would attempt to break the back of the German people and bankrupt the French would all follow in succession.
Driven mad by its own insatiable appetite for wealth and its unquenchable thirst for power, the empire would turn to the East and the Korean and Vietnam Wars would follow in succession. Aided by its partner in the Vatican, Lie upon Lie has been told in the process, about Western man, who he is, where he came from and where he is going. But the biggest lie of all has been about America’s Civil War and why it was fought.
Common Sense should tell us men do not willingly sacrifice their lives so that the already privileged among them can prosper even more. No one from the Army of Northern Virginia cared whether their oligarchs kept their slaves or not. In the words of Jefferson Davis: “The impartial enlightened verdict of mankind will vindicate the rectitude of our conduct, and he who knows the hearts of men will judge the sincerity with which we have labored to preserve the government of our fathers in its spirit.”
America’s founding fathers, the most important of which all seem to have hailed from Virginia, created an America that was a loosely allied band of autonomous states that would band together only when necessary. There was never supposed to be any Federal Law, only a Constitution and a Bill of Rights to protect the citizens of those states. The men who died from the Army of Northern Virginia sacrificed their lives to keep it that way.
Common Sense should also tell us that laws need to be tailored to the environment in which they are enacted and not the myopic whims of legislators from a completely different environment. But it is the curse of this transhuman plague emanating from Silicon Valley that there are those among us who seek to create a world without free will, to legislate every facet of human existence until the man no longer exists and in his place stands a machine incapable of deviating from its program.
Apparently Ralph Northam, Governor of Virginia since 2018, is just such a creature. Having ridden the globalist invasion of Virginia into office, an invasion that has now turned Virginia into a state where a full third of its residents were not even born in America, Northam now seeks to disarm its native residents. In Virginia’s 2019 November election Northam’s party attained a majority “in both houses of the state legislature.” (1) Amid accusations of voter fraud and gerrymandering he has now made it clear that he is “deadly serious in targeting not only gun owners and retailers but even self-defense experts.” (2)
In response, ninety percent of Virginia’s counties have now declared themselves second amendment sanctuaries.
In many cases, the county sheriffs have vowed not to enforce Northam and his posse of twenty-first-century carpetbaggers’ laws because they fly in the face of the constitution. Some have even vowed to arrest anyone seeking to enforce the laws. Northam is quoted as saying “there are going to be consequences.” (3)
State Rep. Donald McEachin, who achieved his fourth district congressional seat which encompasses all of Richmond when a Federal court realigned (gerrymandered) the districts to favor a Black candidate, has openly suggested calling out the National Guard to enforce the gun grab.
The other day, I had lunch in a place called Sal’s Pizzeria in Stanardsville, Virginia. Greene County Sheriff Steve Smith, a big man along with a deputy just as big, was having lunch with a couple of friends at a table across from me. I was introduced to him by one of the leading citizens of Stanardsville. When I told him I was a writer and would be writing about the second amendment sanctuary issue in Virginia, he told me flat out with no prompting at all, “nobody will be confiscating any guns in my county…”
I arrived in Greene County, at the foot of the legendary Blue Ridge Mountains, on a Friday night about two weeks ago. A week and a half or so before about four hundred people had turned out “at the county administration building on Tuesday night.”(4)
The board of supervisors was taking a vote on whether to declare Greene County a second amendment sanctuary and the crowd, almost to the last man and woman, had shown up to make sure they did. In the style of globalist propaganda pawned off as journalism that has turned America into a latter-day Tower of Babel, NBC sought out the lone dissenter; one Jerry Schiller, a scrawny man obviously starved for attention and aired his nonsensical reasoning: “It just sends the wrong thing about Greene County. Nobody wants to bother anyone’s personal rights but this is just not who we are…” (5)
Despite Schiller’s erudite soliloquy (yes I’m being sarcastic) the board voted four to one in favor of the resolution. But NBC was not through yet. They sought out Supervisor Michelle Flynn who had voted against it. Flynn leaves office within the week, will not run for reelection and oddly enough has the same party affiliation as Northam and McEachin. According to Flynn, despite a recent survey showing 82% of her constituents being passionately in favor of it, the “resolution was pointless.”(6) Flynn also claimed that “a Greene County resident threatened her over the phone if she didn’t vote in favor.” (7)
As I already intimated, I am in Greene County under the auspices of one of its leading citizens. I spoke at length on the phone with the man who supposedly threatened her. He asked me, understandably, not to use his name because he has already been slandered enough by a major “news” network and a county supervisor.
He told me that he and Flynn had had a rational discussion on the phone about why she was voting against the people who had put her in office and that he had never threatened her, nor at any time during the course of the conversation said anything that could even be remotely construed as a threat. Flynn’s own brother had called him the next day to explain that she was crazy. The sheriff investigated the allegations, which I confirmed with the sheriff, and found them to be unsubstantiated…
The man, who has ties to the local militias, told me that up to twenty-thousand men will be in Richmond on the thirteenth and the twentieth of this month when Northam and company will attempt to undermine the constitution. Antifa, a globalist obstructionist movement with a penchant for violent confrontation, will also be there.
The men from the militias who legally can have been instructed to carry concealed weapons and not bring long guns. He continually emphasized to me that they are strict “law and order” and in most cases are working in conjunction with their local sheriffs’ departments. They want to avoid violence at almost all costs, but they will not be cowered by a handful of paid radicals…
History does have a way of repeating itself. To paraphrase the Free Masons; all eyes are on Virginia.
