Black Professor Refutes Claims that Confederates Were Traitors

I learned some history by reading this piece by Dr. Walter Williams, who works as an economics professor at conservative George Mason University.

Lew Rockwell

My “Rewriting American History” column of a fortnight ago, about the dismantling of Confederate monuments, generated considerable mail. Some argued there should not be statues honoring traitors such as Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson and Jefferson Davis, who fought against the Union. Victors of wars get to write the history, and the history they write often does not reflect the facts. Let’s look at some of the facts and ask: Did the South have a right to secede from the Union? If it did, we can’t label Confederate generals as traitors.

Article 1 of the Treaty of Paris (1783), which ended the war between the Colonies and Great Britain, held “New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, to be free sovereign and Independent States.” Representatives of these states came together in Philadelphia in 1787 to write a constitution and form a union.

During the ratification debates, Virginia’s delegates said, “The powers granted under the Constitution being derived from the people of the United States may be resumed by them whensoever the same shall be perverted to their injury or oppression.” The ratification documents of New York and Rhode Island expressed similar sentiments.

At the Constitutional Convention, a proposal was made to allow the federal government to suppress a seceding state. James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution,” rejected it. The minutes from the debate paraphrased his opinion: “A union of the states containing such an ingredient (would) provide for its own destruction. The use of force against a state would look more like a declaration of war than an infliction of punishment and would probably be considered by the party attacked as a dissolution of all previous compacts by which it might be bound.”

America’s first secessionist movement started in New England after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Many were infuriated by what they saw as an unconstitutional act by President Thomas Jefferson. The movement was led by Timothy Pickering of Massachusetts, George Washington’s secretary of war and secretary of state. He later became a congressman and senator. “The principles of our Revolution point to the remedy — a separation,” Pickering wrote to George Cabot in 1803, for “the people of the East cannot reconcile their habits, views, and interests with those of the South and West.” His Senate colleague James Hillhouse of Connecticut agreed, saying, “The Eastern states must and will dissolve the union and form a separate government.” This call for secession was shared by other prominent Americans, such as John Quincy Adams, Elbridge Gerry, Fisher Ames, Josiah Quincy III and Joseph Story. The call failed to garner support at the 1814-15 Hartford Convention.

The U.S. Constitution would have never been ratified — and a union never created — if the people of those 13 “free sovereign and Independent States” did not believe that they had the right to secede. Even on the eve of the War of 1861, unionist politicians saw secession as a right that states had. Rep. Jacob M. Kunkel of Maryland said, “Any attempt to preserve the union between the states of this Confederacy by force would be impractical and destructive of republican liberty.” The Northern Democratic and Republican parties favored allowing the South to secede in peace.

Northern newspapers editorialized in favor of the South’s right to secede. New-York Tribune (Feb. 5, 1860): “If tyranny and despotism justified the Revolution of 1776, then we do not see why it would not justify the secession of Five Millions of Southrons from the Federal Union in 1861.” The Detroit Free Press (Feb. 19, 1861): “An attempt to subjugate the seceded States, even if successful, could produce nothing but evil — evil unmitigated in character and appalling in extent.” The New-York Times (March 21, 1861): “There is a growing sentiment throughout the North in favor of letting the Gulf States go.”

Confederate generals were fighting for independence from the Union just as George Washington and other generals fought for independence from Great Britain. Those who’d label Gen. Robert E. Lee as a traitor might also label George Washington as a traitor. I’m sure Great Britain’s King George III would have agreed.

Ex-Government Employee Charged with Selling Top Secret Documents to China

That’s some house that alleged traitor Kevin Mallory owns. I wonder how much of it was paid for by his treason.

NBC Washington

A former government contractor sold top secret and secret documents to China, according to an indictment unsealed Thursday.

Kevin Mallory, 60, of Leesburg, Virginia, sold the documents to Chinese intelligence officials for $25,000, according to the indictment. He used a special device to communicate and transmit documents to Chinese operatives. “Your object is to gain information, and my object is to be paid for,” he wrote in one message.

Investigators found a handwritten index of eight documents on the device, four of which also were stored on the device, according to the Department of Justice. Three of those four contained classified information.

Mallory, who speaks fluent Mandarin, had top secret clearance when he worked for various government agencies and defense contractors. When he left in October 2012, he allegedly took documents with secret and top secret classifications on an electronic device, according to the indictment.

He traveled to Shanghai in March and April, according to the indictment. Upon his return in April, he failed to report he was carrying more than $10,000, and customs officials found $16,000 in his carry-on bags.

Federal agents swarmed Mallory’s neighborhood Thursday morning with K-9 teams and the regional bomb squad command center. Agents’ cars lined Mallory’s street.

He lived there with his wife and three children, neighbors told News4.

Mallory faces charges that could send him to prison for and possibly carry the death penalty if certain allegations are proven.

Mallory is in jail Thursday night. A detention hearing is scheduled for Friday.

Traitor Reality Winner Sought to Join Taliban, Planned to Play “pretty, cute white girl card:” “I want to burn the White House down.”

REALITY WINNER. DELUSIONAL.

I wonder who lied to the treacherous monster Reality Leigh Winner and told her she was cute. I guess she could have been self-deluded. Delusional people are not that hard to find on the left.

Winner’s burning hatred of President Trump extended to the rest of us deplorables. She allegedly wanted to go to Nepal or Kurdistan and join the Taliban. I assume that’s because she wanted to kill American soldiers.

Closer to home, she also allegedly wanted to kill President Trump.

WJLA

Reality Winner, the woman accused of leaking classified government documents to a news website, pleaded not guilty Thursday, according to the Huffington Post.

“Authorities allege Winner, a 25-year-old employee with Pluribus International Corp., accessed a classified document on her work computer in Augusta and mailed it to a news outlet,” HuffPo reports.

“In court Thursday, prosecutor Jennifer Solari said Winner wrote in a notebook that she wanted to “burn the White House down” and move to Nepal or Kurdistan. Solari also said that Winner knowingly leaked information.”

Winner was arrested Saturday. Authorities believe Winner made copies of top secret government documents that outline details of Russian attempts to hack voting software, according to The Intercept – the online publication that received the documents.

It will be difficult for Winner to get a fair trial if her case becomes “this big thing where we’re not going to tolerate leakers,” Winner’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis, told The Associated Press in an interview.

“I think they’re going to try to make an example out of her because of the political climate right now,” Winner-Davis said.

Yes, we should make an example out of your daughter, Madam. The only good thing about her is that had a dog and a cat, which I hope you’re taking care of for her.

Daily Mail

Reality Winner portrayed little emotion in court Thursday as she was denied bond in her federal espionage case after the government alleged that she may have stolen other top secret information and poses an ongoing risk to national security.

The Air Force veteran, 25, is accused of mailing a classified report on a Russian military intelligence cyber-attack in 2016 to a news website.

She entered a plea of not guilty before Judge Brian K. Epps at U.S. District Court in downtown Augusta, Georgia on Thursday afternoon after she was charged with a single count of ‘willful retention and transmission of national defense information’.

Winner was brought into court, in an orange jumpsuit with her hair braided in a top knot, by two federal marshalls. Her hands were cuffed behind her back and she appeared to stand to attention when addressed by the judge.

She spoke only to respond: ‘Yes, your honor’ in a soft voice.
The prosecution made their case for Winner to be detained based on evidence that one prosecutor called ‘downright frightening’.

The prosecution alleged that Winner is ‘extremely intelligent’ and may have removed information from a ‘Top Secret computer on a USB drive’ while she was on active duty and stated that the thumb drive has not been located.

The government is also concerned about what other intelligence Winner possesses as she told her mother in a recorded phone conversation from prison that she ‘screwed up’ over those ‘documents’.

The prosecution stated that Winner had a fascination with the Middle East and Islamic terrorism. The government claimed that they had found handwritten notes during a search at Winner’s home which appeared to sympathize with Osama bin Laden and other terrorists.

Authorities claim another handwritten statement found during a search of Winner’s home allegedly read: ‘I want to burn the White House down and go live in Kurdistan.’

Prosecutors said in recorded jailhouse calls that Winner told her mother how to play her side of the story in the media.

They also said in a phone call she made to her sister that she was confident in how to ‘play the court’ during her bond hearing.

‘I’m pretty, white and cute,’ she allegedly told her sister.

Prosecutors said Winner told her sister she would braid her hair and cry in court.

In a recorded prison call, Winner also reportedly asked her mother to transfer $30,000 out of her bank account and instructed her what to say to the press.

Winner’s mother, Billie Winner-Davis, and stepfather, Gary Davis, sat directly behind her in court along with their friend, Anne Demasi.

What has been revealed about Winner-Loser is probably typical of deranged leftists in America. From her ugly tats to her body builder’s muscularity to her attitude, everything screams loser about her. She was destined to be a lonely cat lady or a tranny or a dykish lesbian even before breaking the law.

America is safer with her off the streets.

LOOKS SWEET AND INNOCENT HERE.

Nasty Lesbian Rosie O’Donnell Donates to Reality Winner’s GoFundMe

REALITY LEIGH WINNER. ADMITS TO STEALING TOP SECRET MATERIAL.

ROSIE O’DONNELL. TRUMP HATING WHINER.

Rosie O’Donnell must enjoy being so widely hated. The walking billboard (We are you???!!!) is urging everyone to donate to traitor Reality Leigh Winner’s GoFundMe.

Western Journalism

Calling her a “brave young patriot,” actress Rosie O’Donnell contributed $1,000 to a GoFundMe account set up to assist the woman who was arrested for allegedly leaking classified information from the National Security Administration.

Reality Leigh Winner, 25, was charged Monday with removing classified material from a government facility and mailing it to a news outlet. The document, which she sent to The Intercept, claimed Russian government hackers attempted to hack more than 100 local election officials before the November election.

O’Donnell told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Wednesday that she made the donation and hopes to help Winner.

“I would love to help her and her family,” O’Donnell said. “I would love to talk to the mother and offer any help.”

The GoFundMe page was set up by Shirley Fink, of Fairfax, Va. She said her goal is to “assist with loss of wages, counseling from this traumatic experience and to be able to recover from this as Reality and her family rebuilds their lives.”

Rosie is surely salivating with delight at the prospect of the widely reviled Winner-Loser turning lesbian in prison, if she wasn’t already a lesbian.

Rosie would undoubted enjoy bumping tacos with the fresh, young Winner-Loser.

Wikileaks Declares War on The Intercept for Turning in Top Secret Leaker Reality Winner to FBI, Offers $10,000 Bounty

ARRESTED LEAKER REALITY WINNER AND HER CAT.

Setting aside for future posts whether the entire (((Reality Winner))) affair is a psyop, Julian Assange and Wikileaks have taken over center stage from the hipster Trump-hating, tatted weirdo with a Top Secret security clearance arrested for mishandling classified material.

Specifically, Assange is on the warpath against the reporter who contacted the FBI when he or she received a Top Secret document in the mail.

Sputnik News

WikiLeaks issued on Tuesday a $10,000 reward for information about a person, who had disclosed identity of reported National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Reality Leigh Winner, accused by the US authorities of leaking classified information to a media outlet.

Winner, arrested on June 3, is accused of leaking information regarding alleged Russian hacking activities during 2016 US presidential campaign.

Earlier on Tuesday, the US Department of Justice said in a statement that Winner was a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation that held a Top Secret security clearance and was employed at the US government agency facility since February. According to the statement, Winner pilfered the classified intelligence reporting, which contained classified national defense information from an intelligence community agency and mailed it to a unnamed media outlet.

According to WikiLeaks, the leaked document was mailed to The Intercept media outlet, which published on Monday the NSA paper detailing “months-long Russian intelligence cyber effort against elements of the US election and voting infrastructure.”

Assange explained his decision to offer a reward to The Daily Beast

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange told The Daily Beast he holds reporters—not just the Trump administration—responsible for the arrest of a U.S. intelligence contractor charged with leaking classified information.

On Monday, the Justice Department said Reality Winner, a 25-year-old National Security Agency contractor, sent top secret information to a news outlet. The announcement came shortly after The Intercept published a series of NSA documents claiming that Russian hackers targeted a voting-software supplier and local election officials just prior to Election Day.

According to the affidavit, reporters for the unnamed news organization provided a copy of the printed NSA report to the agency in order to seek comment. The NSA claimed six people had printed out the report including Winner, who the agency said had been in contact with an unnamed news outlet.

“If the FBI affidavit is accurate the reporter concerned must be named, shamed and fired by whomever they work for to maintain industry standards,” Assange said via Twitter direct message through the WikiLeaks account on Tuesday.

“Source burning reporters are a menace,” he said. “They chill trust in all journalists which impedes public understanding.”

WikiLeaks offered a $10,000 reward for information “leading to the public exposure & termination” of the reporter.

“It seems likely that the FBI affidavit refers to The Intercept, but not certain, hence we say ‘suspected Intercept reporter,’ said Assange. “But whomever this reporter was they are a menace not only to sources but to all journalists by decreasing the trust between sources and journalist and ultimately the public. Democracy dies in darkness.”

Assange’s defense of leaking NSA documents that accuse Russia of interfering in the U.S. election is in contrast to his agreement last year that he was “1,000 percent” confident Russia did not give WikiLeaks hacked Democratic National Committee emails. While Assange did not comment on the content of the leaks, he defended the alleged leaker Monday night.

Assange is not a god. He is a sometime ally. The DNC emails published by Wikileaks (also known as the Podesta emails) did not involve national security. The Snowden material published by Wikileaks showed a government, a (((Deep State))) that was committing treason against its own citizens.

It’s entirely possible to say that you supported Wikileaks before, but not this time, and be a rational human being.

The MSM, which condemned Wikileaks before is now supporting Assange because they want constant leaks to be able to destroy the Trump presidency.

By the way, if you investigate the leaked material, it’s nothing but unsupported speculation by the intel community that Russia did successfully hack the U.S. election.

FBI Arrests Jew Trump Hater Reality Leigh Winner for Leaking Classified Document

MORE COMING OUT: UPDATES AT BOTTOM OF POST.

A 25 year old (((white))) female military veteran is under arrest tonight, charged with leaking a Top Secret classified document to the press.

All Trump haters should have their security clearances revoked. They would gladly put the public in grave danger so long as there was the slightest chance of delegitimizing President Trump.

The far left Mother Jones is reporting that the document is another of those reports (which are surely fake intel) that links Donald Trump to the Russians.

The name Winner is an anglicized version of the Ashkanizi name Weiner.

Excerpt from Heavy

A 25-year-old federal contract worker in Augusta, Georgia has been charged by the Department of Justice for taking Top Secret materials from her workplace and mailing them to a news outlet.

Reality Leigh Winner was arrested by the F.B.I. on June 3 and appeared in federal court in Augusta on June 5. She was charged with gathering, transmitting or losing defense information that could have been damaging to the U.S. It’s alleged that she took a Top Secret document, copied it and mailed it to a news organization believed to be The Intercept, NBC News reported, though the organization was not named in the federal court documents.

The Intercept had published an intelligence document on June 5 —
the same day Winner appeared in court — that’s in line with what’s said in a criminal complaint. The NSA document was dated May 5. The Intercept’s report described details about Russian efforts to hack voting systems in the U.S. about one week before the 2016 presidential election. The document said that it “raises the possibility that Russian hacking may have breached at least some elements of the voting system, with disconcertingly uncertain results.”

Winner was an employee at Pluribus International Corporation based out of Alexandria, Virginia. She was then assigned to a government agency in Georgia. She was employed at the facility since February 13, and held a Top Secret security clearance.

Pluribus is an analytical and engineering service that provides its services to federal, defense, security and the intelligence community. The company has 22 locations across the world, including three in the Republic of Korea. The one located in Georgia is in Fort Gordon.

Notably, Winner didn’t shy away from giving her take on politics. Just one day before the 2016 presidential election, she made a post to Facebook saying “on a positive note, This Tuesday when we become the United States of the Russian Federation, Olympic lifting will be the national sport.”

It also appeared as if Winner created a Twitter account under the handle “Sara Winners” to comment on a slew of political things, such as the North Dakota Pipeline and politics.

Her mother told The Daily Beast that Reality is “very passionate about her views.” But she said that she’s “never to my knowledge been active in politics or any of that.”

Prior to working for Pluribus, Winner was an active duty member of the U.S. Air Force. She was in the Air Force as a linguist, and speaks Pashto, Farsi and Dari, her mother Billie Winner-Davis told The Guardian’s Jon Swaine.

According to a search warrant obtained by Heavy, a special agent with the F.B.I. received information that Winner possessed and willfully sent classified information that was believed to result in damage to national security. The agency received the tip from the news outlet that received the document on May 30 saying that it may have received and classified information. The court document said that the reporting was dated by the NSA as May 5.

After launching an investigation, they found that Winner was one of six people who had access to the document in question on her computer. When investigating those six people, authorities found out that Winner had email contact with the news outlet on March 30 and then again March 31 from her personal GMail account.

In that email, Winner had asked for transcripts of a specific podcast, and a second email confirmed that she had subscribed to the podcast. She allegedly “printed, improperly removed and transmitted classified information from a defense agency of the U.S. government.”

After she printed the information, she mailed the document to the outlet, and the letter was postmarked with Augusta, Georgia, the criminal complaint said.

Authorities arrested her June 3 at her home, and she was subsequently interviewed by investigators. Winner admitted to removing the classified intelligence reporting from her office in Georgia, copying it and mailing it to the news outlet. She allegedly told agents that she knew that she wasn’t allowed to share the intelligence reporting that she obtained, and she was aware that using the information for a news report could cause damage to the U.S. by a foreign nation.

Winner was then taken into federal custody, where she remains as she awaits trial.

Although I appreciate Julian Assange, he’s Tweeted his support for Winner, a position with which I disagree.

Winner’s motive is not patriotism, but anti-Trumpism.

Throw the book at her.

Styx weighs in. He makes some good points you won’t hear anywhere else. Five minutes.

UPDATED WITH MORE PICTURES AND LINKS.

INFOWARS DOSSIER ON HER. Her Tweets are filled with hate for Trump and for America. From that link:

The most remarkable part of this story is how our nation’s standards have collapsed to the point where 25-year-old female social justice warriors are given access to classified information.

Infowars also reports that she was radicalized by Stephen Colbert and a host of other Hollywood filth. However, it’s also reporting that she’s white, refusing to call a Jew a Jew.

Oliver Stone’s Interviews with Vladimir Putin Set to Air Next Week on Showtime

We know with certainty now that the American CIA can leave Russian fingerprints on anything the CIA hacks. The whole Russian narrative is fake news. In the video below, watch Putin laugh at the 24 second mark when asked about Russian hacking of the American election.

In the above video watch as Putin drives himself!

Oliver Stone shows Megyn Kelly how it’s done.

I hope these interviews show up on youtube in the future, with larger type on the English translations. Putin is probably the smartest politician and the most honest one in the world right now.

Published on Jun 1, 2017
In one of multiple interviews over the course of two years, Oliver Stone interviews Russian President Vladimir Putin while he is driving, where Putin discusses his point of view on Edward Snowden. Don’t miss The Putin Interviews, a four-night event beginning June 12th at 9PM ET/PT, only on SHOWTIME.

Lew Rockwell

“As an ex-KGB agent, you must have hated what Snowden did with every fiber of your being,” Stone asks in the clip.

“Snowden is not a traitor,” Putin replies. “He did not betray the interests of his country. Nor did he transfer any information to any other country which would have been pernicious to his own country or to his own people. The only thing Snowden does, he does publicly.”

Even though Putin condemned the NSA’s spy operation, he told Stone that Snowden shouldn’t have leaked the documents they way he did.

“If he didn’t like anything at his work he should have simply resigned, but he went further,” Putin said in a clip of the interview released Saturday.

Stone, whose 2016 film Snowden detailed the rise and fall of the whistleblower, goes on to ask Putin about his own intelligence activities, and though the clip features no overt references to rumors of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, Stone can be seen asking Putin about hacking in the special’s official 30-second trailer.

“I think they’re working quite well,” Putin says of Russian intelligence. “Our intelligence services always conform to the law. That’s the first thing. And secondly, trying to spy on our allies if you really consider them allies and not vassals is just indecent. Because it undermines trust. And it means that in the end, it deals damage to your own national security.”

Stone recently took to Facebook to express his views on Trump and Putin. This film comes against a frightening background wherein the US is sleepwalking into a situation where it becomes more and more likely that Russia will react. Which is precisely what so many angry American neocons and Hillary-wing Democrats seem to want! Why? Is it really worth it to push the world closer to the nuclear precipice for this anger? Is it Trump they hate or is it truly the Russians? And why have they conflated these 2 issues?
