James Howard Meredith, born June 25, 1933 in Kosciusko, Mississippi, makes a lot of people uncomfortable. So much so that in the 90's he said he had to move out of California "to make ends meet" after no one wanted to pay him to appear at speaking engagements anymore. Educated at the University of Mississippi and Columbia Law School, Meredith was known for becoming the first black student at the University of Mississippi.
Meredith supported David Duke for governor of Louisiana and even appeared in a TV ad for him in 1991.
He supported Duke's efforts to reform the welfare system because "it has caused dependency rather than self reliance," adding "the liberals will be surprised how much of the black vote he receives."
Here is a video interview with James Meredith uploaded in 2007:
Description: James Howard Meredith (born June 25, 1933) is an American civil rights movement figure. He was born in Kosciusko, Mississippi of Native American (Choctaw) and African American heritage. Meredith enlisted in the United States Air Force and served from 1951 to 1960. On October 1, 1962, he became the first black student at the University of Mississippi after being barred from entering on September 20. His enrollment, opposed by Governor Ross Barnett, sparked riots on the Oxford campus, which required federal troops and U.S. Marshals, which were sent by President John F. Kennedy. The riots led to a violent clash which left two people dead, including a French journalist Paul Guihard, 48 soldiers injured and 30 U.S. Marshals with gun wounds. His actions are regarded as a pivotal moment in the history of civil rights. He graduated on August 18, 1963 with a degree in history. Meredith on on June 6, 1966 led a civil rights march, the March Against Fear from Memphis, Tennessee to Jackson, Mississippi. During the march James Howard Meredith was wounded by sniper Aubrey James Norvell. The photograph of Meredith after being shot won the Pulitzer Prize for Photography in 1967.
"Mississippi's segregationist governor in 1962, Ross Barnett declared that no school would be integrated on his watch. He denounced the federal government as "evil and illegal forces of tyranny" for ordering Ole Miss to enroll Meredith, a 29-year-old Air Force veteran who had already taken classes at historically black Jackson State College.But even as Barnett whipped the white populace into a segregationist frenzy, he privately negotiated with President John F. Kennedy and his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy, to try to save face as it became clear that federal authorities would escort Meredith onto campus and make sure he enrolled.
In the face of Mississippi's defiance, federal authorities deployed more than 3,000 soldiers and more than 500 law enforcement officers to Oxford. An angry mob of students and outsiders yelled and hurled bricks. Tear gas canisters exploded amid the oaks and magnolias. Two white men were killed. More than 200 people were injured, including 160 U.S. marshals. In his new book, "A Mission from God: A Memoir and Challenge for America," Meredith and co-author William Doyle recall the court battle and mob violence. "I chose as my target the University of Mississippi, which in 1960 was the holiest temple of white supremacy in America, next to the U.S. Capitol and the White House, both of which were under the control of segregationists and their collaborators," Meredith writes.
An active Republican, Meredith served from 1989 to 1991 as a domestic adviser on the staff of United States Senator Jesse Helms. Faced with criticism from the civil rights community for working for the former avowed segregationist, Meredith said that he had applied to every member of the Senate and House offering his services, and only Helms' office responded. He also wanted a chance to do research at the Library of Congress.
In 2002, officials at the University of Mississippi celebrated the 40th anniversary of Meredith's historic admission and integration of the institution with a year-long series of events. Of the celebration, Meredith said,
"It was an embarrassment for me to be there, and for somebody to celebrate it, oh my God. I want to go down in history, and have a bunch of things named after me, but believe me that ain't it."
He said he had achieved his main goal at the time by getting the federal government to enforce his rights as a citizen. He saw his actions as "an assault on white supremacy."
A highly independent man, Meredith has identified as an individual American citizen who demanded and received the constitutional rights held by any American, not as a participant in the U.S. civil rights movement. There have been tensions between him and leaders of major organizations of the movement. When interviewed in 2002, the 40th anniversary of his enrollment at University of Mississippi, Meredith said, "Nothing could be more insulting to me than the concept of civil rights. It means perpetual second-class citizenship for me and my kind."
In a 2002 interview with CNN, Meredith said, "I was engaged in a war. I considered myself engaged in a war from Day One. And my objective was to force the federal government�the Kennedy administration at that time�into a position where they would have to use the United States military force to enforce my rights as a citizen."
"Glenn Montecino, Duke's legislative assistant and spokesman, said from his office in Baton Rouge, La., that Meredith and Duke have "no formal relationship at the moment" but hope to have in the future. He described their association as an "intimate friendship." If Duke wins the governor's race, Montecino said, Meredith may end up a staff member, working in the Health and Welfare Department. Duke is founder of the National Assn. for the Advancement of White People, which Meredith supports. "Duke believes, and I do, too, that there are millions of whites in this country who have been denied their opportunity at the American dream," Meredith said.
...The candidate said he is still relentlessly "pro-black." He simply disagrees with the "liberal agenda of the elite ruling class," which "pigeonholes" blacks, Latinos, women and gays into the same category and weakens--rather then emboldens--each group politically.... "The whole aim of the so-called civil rights movement is to establish a dual citizenship in America," Meredith said. "Blacks that go along with it get special privileges for doing so . . . just as the Jews who supported the Germans got special privileges for doing so."
..."But even then, I knew who my true enemy was. It was the liberal elite, without a doubt. The white supremacists had a narrower goal. The liberal thing was more permanent--to make the black a second-class citizen forever, and to me, that was sinister." "It wasn't David Duke who beat Rodney King, it was the liberal black mayor Tom Bradley's police who beat Rodney King," he said. "But liberals all over America have created a perception that the Klan did that."

Introducing RandPaulZionist.com: Because We Really Need To Do Better In 2016 12/23/14
This site will be a clearing house for Rand Paul Zionist information- keeping a close watch on Randy as he ramps up to his attempted 2016 presidential bid. As someone who heartily supported Ron Paul for president, it's offensive to me that Rand would use his father's support & money base to get elected to the U.S. Senate and then betray his constituents to the degree that he has. Starting with endorsing Romney, slathering at the 'wailing wall,' etc. etc. You may not know that Rand has actually admitted in official Senate speeches that he "meets with Israeli groups daily," a story I broke last year. There are many similar stories in our archives.
I realize that Rand Paul's rhetoric on domestic issues and supposed 'limited government' are better than all the other legislators in Congress. But I believe there is a very serious reason that we as Americans need to reject people like Rand outright, and we should admonish and shame them publicly. The bottom line is that you can promise to 'cut government' all you want, but if you support the maniacal neocon-Zionist foreign policy of giving trillions to Israel and defending Israel at all costs, you're not a friend to Americans or an advocate of peace. Not to mention my good friend Greg from Houston, who made international news in 2010 when he confronted George H.W. Bush in a pizza place and called him a piece of ^%$# Zionist murderer, is helping me with the site. Stay tuned! ;-)
Rand Paul to Ferguson: "Come on guys, you got to wait to have your kids." (Government Meddling in Procreation: Is Rand Paul a Crypto-Eugencist?) 12/1/14
"Birth control is not our business. I cannot imagine anything more emphatically a subject that is not a proper political or governmental activity ... or responsibility," President Eisenhower said in December 1959. Oh how things have changed, with even supposed 'limited government' politicians promoting 'family planning.'
Don't let that cop search your car! (The Supreme Court held that the Fourth Amendment prohibits a police officer from further searching a vehicle which was stopped for a minor traffic offense once the officer has written a citation for the offense.)
"The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes. There is no true freedom except in the service of what is good and just. the choice to disobey and do evil is an abuse of freedom and leads to "the slavery of sin." [CCC 1733]
"Freedom is exercised in relationships between human beings. Every human person, created in the image of God, has the natural right to be recognized as a free and responsible being. All owe to each other this duty of respect. the right to the exercise of freedom, especially in moral and religious matters, is an inalienable requirement of the dignity of the human person. This right must be recognized and protected by civil authority within the limits of the common good and public order." [Catechism of the Catholic Church 1738.].
A 'Mission' lecture series on The Four Last Things: Death, Judgement, Heaven, and Hell: - By Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea
This is an absolute must-hear from my favorite website, AudioSancto.org. I highly recommend this five part series of free audio lectures by this traditional Catholic priest on the most important things which we all will face. (Of course we will experience only three of the four last things, since a person can not go to both Heaven and hell.)
Did you know that the United States government willingly helped slaughter tens of thousands of Catholics in North America only 80 years ago? It was called the Cristero War, a Masonic led slaughter of Catholic freedom fighters. Below is our work documenting the matter. I also highly recommend the excellent film For Greater Glory which was released in July 2012.
Part 1: When the U.S. government supplied ammo & military planes to kill thousands of Catholics 9/18/13
This is an expose on the U.S. government's role in the slaughter of tens of thousands of Roman Catholics in Mexico fighting for their freedom to simply practice their faith. For naive well-intentioned Catholics who believe that we should always trust the government, these documented facts should be a real wake up call. As Archbishop of Baltimore Michael Joseph Curley stated at the time, "Our government has armed Calles's killers!"
Part 2: Admitted Fact: U.S. Govt supplied 10 Million rounds of ammo, 10,000 Rifles, planes & tanks to slaughter thousands of Catholics 10/17/13
LibertyFight.com has further documented many original sources which confirm for the record that the U.S. Government supplied directly from United States arsenals ten million rounds of ammunition, ten thousand Enfield rifles, machine guns, & military aircraft to slaughter innocent Catholics. We found Testimony taken at the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations heard in 1920 and the original New York Times newspaper articles reporting the military supplies ordered by president Herbert Hoover.
U.S. Senate Testimony On the Cristero War April 29, 1920 On Thursday, April 29, 1920, The United States Senate Subcommittee on Foreign Relations heard Testimony taken at Washington D.C. Among the many people who testified were Fr. Francis P. Joyce, a Captain and Chaplain in the United States Army, Monsignor Francis C. Kelley, President of the Catholic Church Extension Society of the United States of America, and Catholic nun Mother Elias De Sta Sacto, of the Discalced Carmelite Order. Note that this testimony was taken on April 29, 1920, which proves that the countless abuses, murders and sacrileges enacted upon Catholics by the Mexican and United States Governments began much earlier than 1926 and extended much later than 1929, as is the period commonly referred to when discussing the 'Cristero War.'
"...My friends, have we not learned that modern wars settle no disputes? By this time are we not dissillusioned? Do we not realize that wars are the enemy of democracy? Do we not appreciate that poor men- the laborers and farmers- pay for all wars- pay with their lives or their liberties?"
Fr. Charles E. Coughlin of Royal Oak, Michigan had one of the most popular radio shows in the U.S. during the late 1930's. At his height of popularity, upwards of thirty million listeners tuned in to his radio show each week and he received 10,000 letters per week with a clerical staff of over 100 people. He advocated a sound money system, abolition of the Federal Reserve, a non-interventionist foreign policy, and was a stringent opponent of both Nazism and Communism, which he pointed out was funded by corrupt Jewish interests and international bankers. Fr. Coughlin exposed war-mongers and government propagandists, which made him a real threat to the establishment. He was a devout and influencial priest who stressed the Gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ. The government banned his programs and threatened to arrest and imprison him. I consider Fr. Coughlin one of the wisest and greatest American heros ever. His material is an absolute treaure, a must-see.
His work, in retrospect, was prophetic and still holds true today.
There is a well circulated clip of Fr. Coughlin on stage at an Illinois rally shouting about the treasonous politicians in Congress who refused to oppose the Federal Reserve Bank's control of American money, noting "They're not even Americans, these so-called Democrats and Republicans!" [Father Coughlin speaks against the Federal Reserve.]
An influential critic of president Roosevelt and America's empirical foreign policy, Coughlin became the target of FDR himself, who was temporarily successful in getting Coughlin kicked off the air.
LibertyFight.com has put together seven articles documenting specific aspects of the brilliant and heroic work of Father Charles E. Coughlin. I have compiled hundreds of newsletters, pamphlets, books and recordings written and spoken by this priest who to this day is shamefully and dishonestly smeared as un-American and an 'anti-semite'. In reality the exact opposite is true. A close examination of Fr. Coughlin's work is important for a revealing documented historical perspective. Also, it relates to the situation today because the same war-mongers, bankers and internationalists about to start World War III by getting the U.S. entangled in a completely fraudulent, unwinnable, an unnecessary war in Syria. As the saying goes, there is nothing new under the sun.
I encourage everyone to download Fr. Coughlin's absolutely invaluable books and listen to his recordings. More posts of interest will come in the following weeks and months as time permits. The story of how I came across this great historical figure is here. Resources are at the bottom of this page.
