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.

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…

Revealed: SPLC Co-Founder Accused of Trying to Molest Step-Daughter

Chances are that if you're reading this you have heard of The Southern Poverty Law Center. The non for profit legal organization that has provided information to law enforcement and is a "go to" source of information by almost every reporter that encounters a "controversial" story.
Widely known for its defense of Civil Rights the SPLC has filled its coffers defending the oppressed and exposing hate-groups, at least that is how the organization wants to be perceived. The reality is that the SPLC has made their millions by twisting the facts. They would have the public believe there is a Klansman hiding behind every tree and a Nazi at every podium. 
I once found myself in their crosshairs by proposing to hoist a Missouri Battle Flag at the grave of Missouri Confederate Colonel William Jeffers in Jackson, Missouri. The ironic thing about their opposition to this "hate-crime"is the fact that after the war, Jeffers formed a militia to combat the Klan.

Only You Can Prevent Forrestal Fires

John McCain has died this weekend at the age of 81. He was a naval aviator, a p.o.w. and a senator.

Dubbed a "Maverick" for his independent political views many considered him a hero.

Many but not everyone.

A post I found on the Facebook Group "The Eagle Eye" pointedly takes a different path in the description of the Senator, a far different eulogy than the lovefest the media is publishing. From the Eagle Eye:

" This is my opinion page, so I can say what I want here. If you loved John McCain, then I advise you not to read any further! I will say that the death if John McCain has been a difficult loss for his family, although maybe they feel relief knowing he isn't suffering anymore. But, from my standpoint, I'll be blunt. McCain was a kiss ass middle of the roader doing what was politically correct, NOT what was right for our country. Obama won his first Presidential term because of McCain. McCain was a loser (and was rejected just like Mitt Romney). …
