JEFFERSON DAVIS TAKES OFFICE
By President Jefferson Davis. In this “forgotten speech” rescued from the dustbin of politically correct historiography, the greatest president the Confederate States of America ever had preaches to the choir, and to posterity, on the causes that impelled the Southern states to separate from their Northern brethren and mentions that the Northern states were welcome to join the Confederacy and thereby protect their states’ rights.
FIRST LIGHTED CHRISTMAS TREE
By Frank Schmidt. You may have heard the legend that Hessian mercenaries had a candlelit evergreen tree in 1776 in Trenton, New Jersey. however, that appears to be only an “urban legend.” Rather, the first documented use of a Christmas tree in North America dates from 1781, in Canada.
FDR: JOE STALIN’S BEST FRIEND
By Michael Collins Piper. If Franklin D. Roosevelt was not a Communist, he was the best “fellow traveler” any Red could have asked for.

FOUNDING FATHER OF ISRAEL?
By Prof. Guido Raimond. The unknown founding father of the state of Israel is none other than Adolf Hitler. Under a pact called the Haavara Agreement (haavara meaning “moving one’s household”), the top Nazis collaborated with the Zionists in a plan to resettle Jewish people from the German lands to Palestine, where they would ultimately form the nucleus of modern Israel. So in fact, the “Final Solution” was not a plan to exterminate the Jews in Germany, but to resettle them peacefully in a new locale…
MEN IN BLACK
By John Tiffany. According to one author, those black-robed assassins on the Supreme Court are murdering America with every decision they make. Have they no respect for the Constitution? When did this dangerous trend of judicial activism begin?

A TBR book review…
