General Robert E. Lee

Truth-seeking versus Intolerant Virtue-signaling

Robert E. Lee was born on January 19, 1807. His birthday passed almost unnoticed this year, although it is still an official holiday in many Southern states and was once observed more widely in the South. Yet Lee is still one of the most revered military leaders in American history.  In fact, Robert E. Lee remains one of the most studied and respected military commanders in world history, although he was ultimately on the losing side. However, it was Lee’s character over and above his military fame that made him so revered among his soldiers and among the Southern people for many generations. It is a sad commentary on our present culture to see such manly courage, godly wisdom, and devotion to duty lost to this and future generations.

“Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime” --Lavrentiy Beria, Soviet Chief of Secret Police under Stalin

The Bolsheviks were the “majority” faction of the Russian Social Democratic Party, which was renamed the Communist Party after Vladimir Lenin seized power during the October Revolution of 1917. Their ruthless totalitarian style of government was perfected under Joseph Stalin from 1924 to 1953. Lavrentiy Beria was Stalin’s Chief of Secret Police from 1941 to 1953. Stalin died on March 5, 1953, and a power struggle for Soviet leadership quickly ensued. Nikita Khrushchev, a critic of Stalin’s purges, staged a coup d’etat in September and emerged as the unchallenged leader of the Communist Party and Council of Ministers.

Misinformed Virtue Signaling Gone Too Far

On Sunday, January 11, on the popular Sunday TV show “Face the Nation,” House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy took the opportunity to condemn the remarks made by Republican Representative Steve King in a New York Times interview on January 10, in which King questioned the appropriateness of condemning the use of the terms “white supremacy” and “white nationalist.”

The New York Times article entitled '"Before Trump, Steve King set the agenda for the wall and anti-immigrant politics” contained this quote from King:

Congress Gets Most of the Blame

According to North Carolinians for Immigration Enforcement (NCFIRE), in 2018, there were 743 child rapes or sexual assaults on children in North Carolina by 215 illegal immigrants. Don’t tell me the immigration crisis is a manufactured crisis. The Democrat Party and their lock-step mainstream news media need to re-start their brains and moral sensibilities and get their heads out of the sand.

The Morrill Tariff, which was introduced by Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives in 1858, was one of the three highest tariffs in U.S. History.  It passed the House on May 10, 1860, receiving only one Southern vote. Lincoln campaigned for it and was elected President on November 6, 1860.  It passed the Senate with no Southern votes on March 2, 1861, two days before Lincoln’s inauguration. This would more than double the tariff rates under the “Free-Trade” Tariff passed in 1857. Lincoln promised to collect the tariffs due at Southern ports, which were about 83 percent of the total U.S. tariff income. Its average tax on dutiable goods reached 47 percent, and the total overall average rate including duty-free items was 29 percent.
