The following is a response from Craig Maus, The Confederate Society's President, to a person who asked the question of how and what means is separation possible.
Your question as to HOW requires a detailed explanation because it is MOST IMPORTANT.
First, I want to personally Thank You for asking it because it indicates a willingness and readiness whose time is long over-do resulting from the continued Multiple Crisis’s created from Washington’s zealous madness.
I have taken the liberty to include the Members of the Board of Directors of The Confederate Society and WELCOME their input as to- “How Separation?”
Let me first begin, as I Respectfully do Not know how familiar you are with the Republic’s History, in attempting explanation of your question.
Let me enumerate:
- The Question of Secession has NEVER been addressed to this day.
It has been ‘talked around’ with many Laws having been passed since 1865 by the National Government making conditions henceforth all the more ‘cloudy’ and confused but, NEVER having addressed the Un-answered question of Secession under the 10th Amendment.
Thus the Washington Government has made, thru elimination, revision and non-speak, a ‘CONDITION’ that suggests secession has been duly addressed that supports their
- Understand also that the Confederate Government did NOT SURRENDER ITSELF when the War ended.
Our Military did but NOT the Government which means it can be Re-stored through Re-Seatment.
- You must also be made aware of what Salmon Chase, the Supreme Court Justice at that time said to Edward Stanton, Lincoln’s Sec’y of War after the War ended:
“If YOU bring ANY of those men (Gov’t Officials or Military of The Confederacy before me, then that which you won on the Battlefield will be LOST in a Court of Law!”
This is MOST SIGNIFICANT AND HAS BEEN QUIETLY HIDDEN ‘AWAY’ BECAUSE, IN MY OPINION, it ‘UN-OFFICIALLY’ SPOKE TO THE ISSUE OF SECESSION AND THE LEGALITY OF IT UNDER THE 10TH AMENDMENT.
- You must remember that Lincoln had Portrayed the Confederacy and her People, from the Start, as Rebels associated with an Act of Treason.
Then, if so, WHY WASN’T A SINGLE CONFEDERATE, Afterwards, EVER CHARGED WITH REBELLIOUS TREASON?
Because as noted in # 3- they COULDN’T because we were Never Rebels & had NEVER committed ANY Act of Treason!
- Jimmy Ward, a Member of our Board of Director’s whose Father- Bill Ward- has written an extensive piece about this and I am going to ask Jimmy to send it to you.
Bill Ward speaks in great Detail how Salmon Chase & Stanton GOT AROUND what was being called ‘The Trial of the Century’ at the time as President Davis WANTED, IN THE WORSE WAY, to bring before the Supreme Court of the United States, the CASE for OUR POSITION & RIGHT OF EXISTENCE!
But they found (Chase & Company) a loophole within the 14th Amendment that THEY PASSED in 1868 ( 3-years AFTER the War ), when Our States were being ‘represented’ by
Carpet-Baggers and Federal Judges, that allowed them to AVOID that TRIAL from Ever Happening.
Thus their LIE BEGAN along with the Usurpation of this Republic.
It has been in play ever since and over the last 150 years but NOT before their Supreme Court ruled, AFTERWARDS, & AGAIN ‘once more’…
- In 1867 (Texas vs. White) that Secession- MOVING FORWARD- WAS Illegal…..BUT THEY NEVER ADDRESSED WHAT OCCURRED PRIOR WHEN IT WAS LEGAL!
- Thus an Entire Nation hence has been Moved to Think that Secession was ‘ALWAYS’ Illegal… when in FACT it Was LEGAL- prior to 1867, but made Illegal afterwards!
The ABSURDITY of that claim & ‘teaching’ speaks to the level of stupidity and dumbing down that has contributed, et al, to WHY America finds itself in the many
PREDICAMENTS today in every CAPACITY!
- So ONE MUST BE CAREFUL AS TO WHO they are ‘listening to’ when anyone talks about Secession and Must be sure to clarify what they KNOW or are saying that may be designed to deliberately miss-lead YOU.
Are they talking about Secession when it was Legal, or Secession when it was made Illegal, that resulted in the ILLEGAL ACTIONS OF LINCOLNS INVASION OF ANOTHER COUNTRY that claimed the LIVES OF 650,000 MEN ON BOTH SIDES….subsequently changing this Republic in THEIR IMAGE!
- Now to your question and the Position taken by our Confederate Society:
- We need to go ‘Back to the Future’ and ADDRESS THAT WHICH REMAINS UN-ADDRESSED.
- To attempt anything ‘In-Between’ would be IMPOSSIBLE & a Fools Errand because Washington’s Law’s hence SUPPORT THEIR HEGEMONY of Deceit that has made the States, who created the Original but NO longer Federal Government, their bastard ‘children’…. relegating them to a status of Servitude along with the People.
- Remember this above all else:
- Prior to the conclusion of the War in 1865, we had a very Unique Constitution that I refer to as The ORIGINAL.
TODAY, we have TWO (2) Constitutions - the ONE that existed PRIOR TO THE WAR whose ‘Language’ is entirely different than the ONE WRITTEN AFTER THE WAR!
- And within Each, there are TWO SETS of LAWS with entirely TWO ‘Messages’ contained within them.
- And which ONE I would ask is Always under ATTACK TODAY- the One written PRIOR….or the ’One’ written after?
Thus, this would bring into QUESTION every element of their creation, that was NEVER TO HAVE BEEN under the Original Republic that REVEALS, in my opinion, the very Nakedness of their current National/Central Government which they have become.
- Post war amendments which stripped away additional sovereignty under the guise of fairness, not fair to participants of the Confederacy, or as they would refer to them as members in Rebellion, against their cause of centralization.
- Contained in Their 14th Amendment was many Usurious ‘conditions’ that created the Basis for their New National Government that they would build upon over the years following. Among them:
- The Acts of Reconstruction.
Originally ‘scripted’ and sold as the ‘form of punishment’ the former States of the Confederacy deserved (Remember, President Davis NEVER got his trial) when these ACTS had a Far More Intended Purpose!
Rather, it would serve as the BASIS from which the entire Country ( NORTHERN STATES AS WELL) would be ‘ReConstructed’ allowing for the disposition of
State Sovereignty under the Original Republic to be Transferred (ALL POWER) to the Central/National Government that the States had originally created.
(The serpent cares less about who it ultimately bites as long as it can FEED)
NOTE this had been a ‘smoldering’ question (Sovereignty and Central Government) long before 1860 and was eloquently questioned by John C. Calhoun in 1831. A copy of his exclaim can be seen on our website- www.deovindice.org where he raises these very questions.
- Those ‘Acts’ were Designed to achieve exactly what they were called- RECONSTRUCT… BUT the People had NO idea of their Real Significance & Intentions.
They in FACT , RECONSTUCTED THIS COUNTRY IN THE POLITICAL IMAGE OF THEIR DESIGN OVER THE YEARS SINCE!
- Included in the 14th Amendment was the requirement that ALL STATES REVISE THEIR Former STATE CONSTITUTIONS TO CONFORM WITH THE NEW POLICY’S OF THE NEW NATIONAL GOVERNMENT whose many ‘edicts’, in the form of New Laws, would be forthcoming. Y’all are seeing those today in MANY FORMS.
And yet, to this very day, Those People in Washington have the temerity call themselves a Federal Government which they LONG AGO STOPPED BEING.
All this is Part of the Dumbing down process through which their Illusion prospers.
- Also included was the provision that forced every American to become what they now called a ‘Federal Citizen’.
NO longer would you be a citizen of your former SOVEREIGN COUNTRY- THE STATE YOU LIVED IN (that is why General Lee always referred to Virginia as His Country), but a Citizen of the National Government.
- Consider the ramifications of this from a Legal perspective and the position it allowed the new National Government in ALL things following INCLUDING how they would be now able to appropriate your MONEY from you?
The New National Government now had an Open ‘Check-Book’ and the former State Citizens whose prior Sovereignty protected them from all this, would be NO more thanks to the NEW & Various titles they created called ‘Federal Law’.
DO YOU SEE HOW THIS WAS SHAPING UP?
Can YOU understand why NONE of this has BEEN REMOTELY TAUGHT IN THEIR GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS…..gee, I wonder Why?
I refer to the above as the 1st Leg of their 3-Legged Stool of Reconstruction- The Political Leg. The Economic and Cultural Legs would follow afterwards.
- Now ‘weigh’ the importance of their 17th Amendment, passed in 1913 THAT HAD two PRIMARY PURPOSES TO IT:
- IT took from the State Legislatures their RIGHT to appoint ‘FEDERAL’ Senators to the U.S. Senate and made it an ‘Election Process’.
They closed that Last Door they had forgotten about WITHIN THEIR Political Reconstruction- and now You’re Senatorial choice would NO longer be yours but a ‘choice’ given you from one of the two complicit parties, ‘Influenced’ by every out of town Special Interest Group and Political Action Committee (PAC’s) whose MONEY buys them much the same as the ‘National Election’ process is handled and YOU think you are in control of them- WHAT AN ILLSUION.
Does the term Slam-Dunk sound familiar- are y’all ‘Connecting the Dots’ YET?
- Also included in their 17th Amendment was the Creation of Their Federal Reserve System. Do I even need to comment about what that group IS ABOUT & has done?
(They were the 2nd leg of Reconstruction- the Economic Leg)
- Now to your question Sir Knowing the Facts as they have been given you- How do we Separate?
- This requires an ASSEMBLY of Legal Minds that would NOT be afraid to undertake this task but would require an enormous amount of money.
- That money would have to come from the People and before that could happen, a Coordinated Undertaking via Networking across EVERY STATE would have to be realized.
- This is what our Confederate Society has been proposing for over 20 years but there are SOME on this side of the Mason-Dixon who have PREVENTED that.
You draw your conclusions as to who they are but they are rather ‘Notable’. WHY should be the question and that is why I suggest to ANYONE claiming to uphold to the values of the Original Republic this, of anyone:
- Are you a Confederate and,
- Do YOU believe in the Restoration of that Confederate Governments that was NEVER SURRENDERED?
- YES or NO….no ughs, maybes, ifs and or buts, etc.- YES or NO!
- Within this process I would presume would be the requirement that those Americans seeking Separation and a return to State Sovereignty would have to become Confederate Citizens.
This is NOT a Difficult undertaking nor would it CONFLICT with your present U.S. Citizenry.
- Many have asked how this might impact their Gov’t. Pensions (Military or Otherwise) today and their Social-Security etc.?
It WOULDN’T CHANGE ANYTHING BECAUSE:
They/You would hold Dual-Citizenship just as some today hold Dual Citizenship being a Citizen of the ‘U.S.’ and let us say, a citizen of Italy as well.
The U.S. National Government would be Compelled via their LAWS to honor their stated commitment.
Isn't Role Reversal GREAT when it works for the PEOPLE?
- In this manner, it would ELIMINATE CONFRONTATION and Force the Legal Questions of more than 150 years that have laid dormant to be finally addressed.
- Thus, and frankly, those Laws that have been passed since, that serve the Empire as does Quicksand to a Swamp, would be circumvented allowing us to address those in
Existence prior to 1865 that have since become circumvented.
- Then the Cardinal Question as to OUR Right of Secession, as it were, would be addressed and we could get the hell outa Dodge WITH Our People and ANY requesting Confederate Citizenship….and Confederate Statehood.
In turn, Individuality and Prosperity would RETURN as the Sovereign States would again be in Control of what works best for them with a very LIMITED, LIMTED ‘Federal Gov’t’, for the lack of a better description, as noted within the Confederate Constitution.
A Lincoln Type or Obama type would NEVER AGAIN SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY IN OUR LAND OR ANY OF THE TYPES ASSOCIATED WITH THEM!
Thus we would be free from the Behemoths Boot Straps that have stolen our Identity and Individual Standings.
- I would call ANYONE’s attention to the Confederate Constitution in this process and would suggest you read it.
- It ACTUALLY IMPROVES UPON THE U.S. CONSTITUTION as it has addressed and eliminated those Many ‘Loopholes’ that Lincoln seized upon to circumvent & subsequently subvert the reasons for his Invasion of OUR Country-The Confederate States of America, resulting in their National Government of today that has become the Socialized Epitome of what Those People always envisioned for themselves to begin with.
I have tried my best to explain to you what Must be done and what has happened Sir.
President, The Confederate Society of America
