A Refutation of Jesse James: Last Rebel of the Civil War by T.J. Stiles

Jesse James: Last Rebel of the Civil War

 

Being a writer, historian and defender of Southern History, more specifically “Reconstruction Era” Southern/Confederate History that is rife with political bias and inaccuracies by writers looking to demonize not only the Confederate cause but also the good, God fearing Southern people (many of them my relatives) caught under the yoke of Federal tyranny during so-called “Reconstruction”, this brief refutation of T.J. Stiles book on Jesse James was a breath of fresh air to be sure.

 

“Stiles offers the most recent interpretation of Jesse as a political terrorist. Stiles continually laments the end of Reconstruction and is on the side of the oppressed blacks.

These days, however, after George Floyd, Black Lives Matter, and a never-ending cycle of black crime and welfare abuse that is harder to defend than it was 30 years ago, Jesse’s stance might have new admirers.

In his ‘History of the American People’, Paul Johnson notes that the Civil War ended the slavery problem and began the Negro problem, which is still with us.

An authoritarian federal government such as the one that arose under Abraham Lincoln and persisted until the end of Reconstruction dismantled it has arisen again, and in the age of Biden it is readily acknowledged to be an immoral, tyrannical threat to the American people. Perhaps not by all of them, but certainly the smell of disenfranchisement is in the air as much as it was in Jesse’s world of 1861 Missouri.

Yet now, a great percentage of the American populace is seen as “Deplorables,” and it is being made clear by the Yankees’ descendants that this is a class which mustn’t be allowed to exist. In the 2020 election, Chris Wallace grilled both candidates about white supremacy. Now, merely being white is crime enough, according to the ruling class. I wonder if more and more people are thinking that if I’m gonna do the time, I might as well do the crime. Jesse appears less as Robin Hood today than as someone fighting to stay alive against a repressive government. As the bumper sticker says, when freedom is outlawed, only outlaws will be free.

Perhaps the final word on Jesse James and his bushwhacker past might be from Ang Lee’s magnificent film Ride With the Devil, which was adapted from Daniel Woodrell’s novel Woe to Live On. Alex Linder’s review of the film questioned whether liberty is consistent with civilized order. Linder felt that the film showed that feral men are the only free men.”

The reality is the ruling elite fear the citizenry still and because the citizenry is armed, they cannot just massacre ideological dissidents at will. Instead, they have to get crafty and do it through things like an experimental vaccine and call it something scary like COVID. Those with real power and in the national government do not represent us. They hate us and seek to return humanity to serfdom under their rule and undo centuries of progress made by the average citizen to have a better life. This is all by design, it is not an accident.

Keep your powder dry, because it is the only thing that keeps them partially in check.

God bless you and God bless Dixie.

When Men Were Men: Capt. Ronald Speirs, US Army

Captain Ron Speirs, US Army

 

In the morally bankrupt/no testsosterone/limp dick times we live in it is important to remind ourselves that once upon a time there were REAL Men that populated the ranks of our Military.

Captain Ronald Spiers is one of my personal favorites of the Band of Brothers Series.

The Foy Battle scene (Episode 7: The Breaking Point) is EPIC!

General Von Steuben: The Man who Trained Washington’s Army

Know Your History.

Von Steuben Training & Consulting

Today, September 17, is Baron Von Steuben’s birthday. Von Steuben played a key role in the American Revolution, and has been revered ever since for his contributions to our victory against the British. In honor of his service, I would like to write a brief summary of the life and accomplishments of this man who is the namesake of my training business.

Early Life and Military Career

Von Steuben was born in Prussia (modern day Germany) in 1730. He enlisted in the Prussian army when he was 16 and saw service during the Seven Years War fighting against the Russian and Austrian armies. During his 17 years of service he rose to the rank of Captain and served as aide-de-camp to Frederick the Great.

A quick side note here. Frederick the Great was the King of Prussia, and one of the most brilliant strategic and tactical minds of the century…
