Somebody posted this. It looks like its from some message board, maybe one of the chans. I don;t know enough to critique it, but ti an amateur like me it seems pretty solid. Click to enlarge.
Via Brittius National Post Voting begins Sunday on a referendum on whether Venice and its surrounding region should secede from the rest of Italy, in an attempt to restore its 1,000-year history as a sovereign republic. La Serenissima — or the Most Serene Republic of Venice — was an independent trading power for a millennium […]
Well, the fight over the Battle Flag has been lost, even the League of the South has “removed” the flag from it’s public demonstrations, “Do not bring flags or signs – we will provide these.” The flag they are providing is their new “Southern activist flag” Kanye West is now the only one to fly […]
Occidental Dissent Since the 18th century Enlightenment, the West has made an idol of liberal democracy. It has in effect become the political default position of most Westerners, including most Americans. We accept it as “right” without critical examination. In fact, I don’t think it incorrect to say that liberal democracy has become our civic […]
From Blood and Soil Libertarianism has been riding high the last couple of decades with popularity of political candidates like Ron Paul and websites like lewrockwell.com. Many of the articles you will read from this side of the political spectrum will be heavily laden with conspiracy theories and the idea that man is basically good […]
Dr. Michael Hill’s speech at the 2013 League of the South conference via Occidental Dissent.
The dispute over interpretation of the Constitution is based on political philosophy, but political philosophy is itself based on something else. Look at this map, Look at who doesn’t claim hyphenated American ancestry, the South. The reason for this is (drum roll) immigration. Most immigration from independence until the 20th century went to the north […]
I’m reading about Scottish immigration to the Antebellum South and I came across this page with this quote that I though worth sharing: ” Highlanders were suspicious of the road construction – seeing it as a government intrusion on their lives.” To put it into perspective, the period he’s referring to was one of major social change and urbanisation. Highland dress was outlawed, estates were forfeited and the government, generally, was […]
VIA Western Rifles An idea for a television series. I don’t want to give away the punchline, so you’ll have to go read it.
This on top of the Zimmerman/Martin trial. NBC Bracing for an impending Supreme Court decision that could limit the reach of the Voting Rights Act, liberal legal experts and advocates are assessing what to do if the court strikes down a central part of the law. Addressing the annual convention of the liberal lawyers’ […]
Some US migration numbers have come to my attention, they’re from ’07. 71.4% of North carolina’s population was born here, only Texas is “stickier” than we are. This is of course means that we are breeding our own liberals rather than them coming from outside. Of course, Pew also says 39.9% have moved in, so […]
For a short while between the Articles of Confederation and the ratification of the Constitution, the States of NC and RI were fully independent. Arator Journal The ratification of New Hampshire had set in motion the machinery that would activate the Constitution in March 1789.

I was reading through Clyde N Wilson’s archives at Chronicles Magazine and came across this short essay. “I hold it that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and is as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical”, is a common quote which Wilson says has been misinterpreted, or […]
Lee Siegel at the Daily Beast has written a “well reasoned”, “historically accurate” hit piece on red States, espacially the Southern ones. Reference these three posts, if you’re interested. Just think what America would look like without its mostly Southern states. (We could retain “America”: they could call themselves “Smith & Wesson” or “Coca-Cola” or […]
Via Free NC News and Record RALEIGH, N.C. — A Confederate battle flag hung inside the old North Carolina State Capitol last week to mark the sesquicentennial of the Civil War is being taken down after civil rights leaders raised concerns.

Via Orthosphere where the discussion is.

NC Renegade Texas lawmakers are drawing attention by considering a law that would have Texas review how it would respond should the U.S. government no longer be there to send federal tax revenue back to the state.
