BLOOD IN THE OZARKS

CLICK HERE TO ORDER
Deep in the eastern Ozarks of Missouri, a battle still rages about a Union massacre of Southern civilians that happened on Christmas Day, 1863. While some call it a simple rescue mission to liberate captured Union soldiers, others claim that it was mass murder, which included women and children. The Civil War was a bitter and brutal conflict, but perhaps never more so than in the state of Missouri, where the wounds of the Kansas border war still festered. The inhumanity of the conflict was punctuated with Union war crimes, especially in the eastern Ozarks. There, civilians were targeted in an effort to subjugate the fierce fighting men battling Union forces in the region. As a result of this policy, 27,000 Missouri citizens were killed during the war. Starvation, theft, looting, torching homes and murder were not uncommon tactics used by a bevy of Federal miscreants whose criminal tactics culminated at a Christmas Day dinner at Tom Pulliam's farm in Ripley County. It was there that the Confederates and their families were set upon by a group of Union cavalry under the command of Major James Wilson. According to eyewitnesses and numerous other sources, about 100 of the attendees were killed-including women, children and the elderly-and dozens more wounded by the Union Missouri State Militia. Author Clint Lacy also discusses the other censored atrocities committed by Union forces in Missouri in his attempt to bring history into accord with the facts and shine the light of truth on one of the darkest periods of American history.

Monuments Off Mountains

The Atlanta Journal- Constitution newspaper is reporting:

"Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams called for the removal of the giant carving that depicts three Confederate war leaders on the face of state-owned Stone Mountain, saying it "remains a blight on our state and should be removed."

Abrams campaign website states:
"Stacey knows our beginnings do not have to dictate who we will become. She has a boundless belief in Georgians’ capacity to prosper; and she has the courage, commitment to service, and experience to make this vision a reality"

It's a feel-good all inclusive moderate message designed to appeal to a broad spectrum of Georgia voters but it is not a difficult endeavor determining what vision she has in mind.
A recently published news story reveals the reality of Abrams' vision and confirms that she has the experience working in the field.
The New York Times is reporting:

"At a protest on the steps of the Georgia Capitol …

Disgraced General Tosses Portrait of Robert E. Lee (Because his wife told him to )

On November 21, 2018 the Washington Post published an article written by Retired U.S. General Stanley McChrystal entitled 'Good Riddance: Americans need to set aside icons like Robert E. Lee to live up to our potential'.

The article contains a picture of a (digitally) vandalized portrait of General Robert E. Lee, which one can only assume, given the history of the Washington Post, is not only an approval of past attacks on Confederate monuments but also a wink and a nod to future attacks as well.
In the article McChrystal admits that a portrait of General Robert E. Lee hung on his wall, wherever he went , for over 34 years and that the portrait was given to him as a gift from his wife, who coincidentally is the one who told him to take it down.
The reason? McChrystal states:
"In the summer of 2017, my wife, Annie, urged me to take down the picture. Disgusted by the images of hate and white supremacy that had descended on Charlottesville in the form of angry, torch-bearin…

Oklahoma Veteran Arrested for Defending Himself Against Alleged Meth- Maker

On the evening of April 14, 2014 Edwin Turlington, a U.S. Army Veteran and Private Investigator who lives in Delaware County, Oklahoma noticed two men starting a fire on adjacent property owned by his brother. Ed tells me, "When I purchased the property it was land locked so my brother purchased the property next to it so I would not have to get an easement."

The incident has placed Mr. Turlington in a four year legal battle and facing a 10 year sentence if convicted.
Mr. Turlington states he:

"Found three strangers, including convicted drug dealer Darrell Philpott cooking Meth on land his brother recently contracted for and already acquired the right to possess. Relying on his law enforcement training and experience, Ed realized the men had taken the license plates off their truck, which is a significant indicator they were going out into the community with bad intentions. Ed executed a citizen's arrest in accordance with Oklahoma statutes. Rather than submit to t…
