Confederate Sons of the Beast in Mexico

John Fremont and the Radical Republicans (who were forty-eighters) wanted the Confederate Traitors to take the Iron Clad Oath because they were still conspiring with with royal rulers who hate democracy.

Here is a video that bid present day parasites of The Beast to whine and wail over their loss to the Radical Aboltionist Republican Party co-founded by my kindred, John Fremont. I suspect Lincoln and Blair supressed Fremont’s zeal to drive out the Beast, send it back to Europe, lest America be forever at war with the royal houses. Sending our troops to die in WW1 was a big mistake because it was a war between royal kindred wearing many crowns – they all close kin to the Emperor and Empress of Mexico. We should have drafted the grandsons of Confederate Traitors – only – and sent them to fight for their beloved royalty.

In April 1866 John Bigelow, the U.S. Minister to France, after continuous pressure and polite threats, reaches an understanding with Napoleon: the troops in Mexico will be brought home in three stages, the last being set on November 1, 1867. On July 30 Napoleon proposes a new agreement to Maximilian: in exchange for half the revenues of the customs of Tampico and Vera Cruz, he is prepared to withdraw his troops not immediately but, yes: in three stages, the last on November 1, 1867.

In a speech at Bordeaux in 1852, Napoleon III famously proclaimed that “The Empire means peace” (“L’Empire, c’est la paix”), reassuring foreign governments that the new Emperor Napoleon would not attack other European powers in order to extend the French Empire. He was, however, thoroughly determined to follow a strong foreign policy to extend France’s power and glory, and warned that he would not stand by and allow another European power to threaten its neighbour. He was also a partisan of a “policy of nationalities” (principe des nationalités) re-casting the map of Europe, sweeping away small principalities to create unified nation-states, even when this seemed to have little relevance to France’s material interests. In this he remained influenced by the themes of his uncle’s policy, as related in the Mémorial de Sainte-Hélène, such as Italian unification and a united Europe. These two factors led Napoleon to a certain adventurism in foreign policy, in the opinion of some contemporaries, although this was tempered by pragmatism.[22]

Eight world rulers (heads of the beast) are listed in Revelation 17,11: 1. Nebuchadnezzar (Dan. 2,38), 2. Cyrus (Isa. 44,28), 3. Alexander the Great (Dan. 8,21), 4. Augustus (Luk. 2,1), 5. Charlemagne, 6. Napoleon I, 7. Napoleon II (the second Napoleon to rule, known to history as Napoleon III), 8. Napoleon III (the third of this name to rule, who according to Revelation 17,8 is to come up out of the abyss through the effects of Satanic power).

New Virginia Colony

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search
The New Virginia Colony was a colonization plan in central Mexico, to resettle ex-Confederates and any other immigrants from any nation.[1] and other Americans after the American Civil War. The largest settlement was Carlota, approximately midway between Mexico City and Veracruz, although other settlements were planned near Tampico, Monterrey, Cuernavaca, and Chihuahua.[2]
The venture was conceived by Commodore Matthew Fontaine Maury. Because of his work for the Confederate Secret Service, Maury was unable to return home to Virginia.[3] Maury, as an internationally famous oceanographer, and navy man was a long-time friend of Maximilian and had been awarded a Medal by Maximilian before the civil war. Maximilian had also been head of the Austrian navy and awarded Maury the medal for his work in oceanography. Maximilian liked Maury and his idea of inviting Confederates and anyone else to resettle in Mexico, and offered land grants to any who would come and stay. Slavery had not been allowed in Mexico before Maximilian arrived and still was not allowed so no settler could bring in any slaves into Mexico. The new Emperor was also eagerly seeking settlers from Germany, Austria, and France, as part of his strategy to rebuild and Europeanize Mexico.[4]
Maury explained a network of planned settlements to Maximilian who liked what was suggested. These were to be primarily in the agricultural regions surrounding Mexico City, but also in the northern areas around Monterrey and Chihuahua. American “colonization agents” were appointed to districts, and Maury began to prepare surveys for the proposed colonies. One of Maury’s colleagues was explorer and archeologist William Marshall Anderson, whose brother, U.S. Brevet Major General Robert Anderson, commanded the Union soldiers at Fort Sumter. Two others had worked under Maury when he was the superintendent of the U.S. Naval Observatory. His eldest son, Col. Richard Launcelot Maury, had also emigrated to Mexico. Maury had plans for his entire family to eventually move there to a colony. Virginia was war-torn, “go back? –to what!” declared Maury.[5]
Confederate Generals such as Fighting Joe Shelby, John B. Magruder, Sterling Price, and Alexander W. Terrell made their way down to Mexico after the war.[6]
Throughout this period, Maximilian’s regime was under attack by the Indian and mestizo leaders Benito Juárez and Porfirio Díaz. From 1865 onward, Juárez and Díaz were covertly supplied from a US Army depot in El Paso, Texas. In 1866 Napoleon III withdrew the French troops that had been supporting Maximilian, and many of the New Virginia colonists soon followed or were killed by bandits or anti-Maximilian partisans.[7]
Maximilian was shot in 1867, and the New Virginia Colony settlements mostly vanished. The peak population of these settlements is not known, but seems to have been no more than a few thousand.

Humpty Dumpty
Mexico: the French Intervention and the 2nd Empire, 1862-1867.
The threat that the U.S. poses has always been hanging as a sword of Damocles over the intervention. Only the Civil War had made it possible, and, from its start, Napoleon has sought to support the Confederacy against the Unionists. According to John Slidell, the South’s commissioner to France, the Emperor was “convinced of the propriety of the general recognition of the Confederate States by European Powers, but that the commerce of France and the success of the Mexican Expedition would be jeopardized by a rupture with the United States, that, in case of trouble with that country, no other Power than England possessed a sufficient navy to give him efficient aid in a war on the ocean which, however, he did not anticipate, if England would join with him in recognition.” The English were not prepared to do so, and Napoleon never dared to openly support the South, though warships were built in Bordeaux for the Confederate navy.

For reasons we’ve seen before, the Union was fiercely opposed to the establishment of an empire in Mexico. On April 4, 1864, the Senate and the House of Representatives had passed a resolution in opposition to the recognition of it, and, although no action could be undertaken at the moment, Napoleon was repeatedly informed of the position of the United States by its Secretary of State, William Seward. Maximilian’s envoy, Señor Arroyo, sent to Washington with a view to obtain this recognition, wasn’t even received.

And now, things take a turn for the worse. On April 9, 1865, General Lee surrenders to the Union Army, and the Civil War comes to an end. Suddenly the scene of military interest shifts to the Rio Grande. 60,000 Union soldiers are massed upon the frontier. And although the support is as yet official nor open, the ranks of the Liberals are reinforced by volunteers from the U.S.

To raise the spirits, the sovereigns decide to make a big thing of Independence day, 15 September. A promenade in the capital on a carpet of flowers, followed by a Te Deum in the cathedral, a grand ceremony on the Plaza Mayor, and a ball, the most brilliant since their arrival in Mexico. It is a complete failure. On their “Champs Elysees” from Chapultepec to the city only a handful of people could be bothered to come and watch the imperial coach pass by. When they arrive at the vast and almost empty Plaza Mayor, small separate groups, under the windows of the palace and in the shadow of the cathedral, start crying “Death to the Emperor! Death to Carlotta! Death to the French!”.

That evening, in a magnificent robe set with precious stones, the Empress presides over the ball. Without a smile. She probably didn’t hear it, but she must certainly have guessed what was whispered: “What an insolence, what a clumsiness, above all. I bet that tomorrow, the courier leaving for Europe will be laden with acrid remarks on the inconsiderate sovereigns that parade about while people die at the foot of their palace”.
And the day holds yet another surprise for the sorely tried Empress. With his taste for the symbolic, and regardless of his wife’s feelings about the matter, Maximilian has chosen independence day to sign the adoption papers of two grandsons of the liberator and first emperor of Mexico: the 2-year old Augustín and the 15-year old Salvador de Iturbide. The first one to be raised in Chapultepec to be the heir to his throne, the second one assumedly to be kept in reserve.

If the Emperor expects to regain the enthusiasm of his people by linking his name to that of the freedom fighter and establish a “Mexican” dynasty, he is wrong again. But the American newspapers are happy to inform their readers of yet another crime of the Austrian usurper: kidnapping. Poor Maximilian simply can do no good.
“We are here, I can assure you, my good father and dear mother, in a miserable country, completely different from what one imagines in France (…) Not at all wanting to be pessimistic, one is forced to recognise that it goes wrong. Between them, the emperor and the empress make mistakes as if vying with each other and one hears words that may be translated and summarised in one only: ‘leave!’ Every day, they lose in consideration. I was going to say prestige, but it is a long time since they had any left and that surprises me not at all (…). They have no wish and no understanding except for childish things, for regulating the style of the breeches and the dress one wears at court. The only functionary that is very occupied, and really very seriously, is the master of ceremonies. Everything that touches on etiquette is of an unequalled importance and regulated, most of the time, by the emperor and the empress themselves. On top of that, he makes a fuss about little trifles that vexes and irritates the feelings by throwing a certain ridicule on those who commit them. Certainly, everything is not lost, but there is a lot to do if one wants to regain the ground lost.” The Comte de Béarn is not the only one to speak such harsh words.

But there is also another side, which might offer a chance to stem the tide. On June 28 U.S. General Sheridan reports to General Grant: “Kirby Smith, Magruder, Shelby, Slaughter, Walker and others of military rank have gone to Mexico. Everything on wheels -artillery, horses, mules etc.- have been run over into Mexico. Large and small bands of rebel soldiers and some citizens, amounting to about 2,000, have crossed the Rio Grande into Mexico (…) The rebels who have gone to Mexico have sympathies with the Imperialists, and this feeling is undoubtedly reciprocated.”

The Imperial government, as well as individual landowners, encourages refugees from the north to come and develop the agricultural resources of the country. A plan is devised for a colony of Confederates in the province of Sonora which, obviously, would form a formidable bulwark against a threat from the north. Napoleon is all for it, and promises every facility and assistance. All that is missing is the signature of Maximilian. But the Emperor who, for no intelligible reason at all, is still hoping on a recognition of his empire by the U.S., is against it, and so another chance of salvation is thrown away.

“God helps that our sovereign opens his eyes, because by holding them closed, everything goes wrong”, sighs the Grand Marshal Almonte. But as his empire is going downhill, the sovereign closes them even firmer.
Not only the Americans are nagging Napoleon to put an end to his Mexican escapade; on 7 March 1865 the Duc de Morny, the man who so completely dominated the Corps Législatif, inconveniently dies. In him, Napoleon loses a valuable safety valve on the boiling kettle of French politics. In the beginning of 1866, Napoleon has to send the Baron Saillard to Mexico with the notification that the Corps Législatif can no longer free funds for the maintenance of the troops in Mexico, and that he therefore is forced to withdraw them as soon a possible.
For any sensible man, this would have been a gift from heaven. Here is a golden opportunity to get out of the mess and return home without loss of face. Now Maximilian can, and righteously so, publicly accuse Napoleon of breaching the agreement that is the fundament of the empire. But his answer is as stupid as it is dignified: “Monsieur mon frère, Your Majesty considers himself (…) not able to observe the solemn treaties that he has signed with me hardly two years ago, and he has disclosed this with an honesty that cannot do him but honour. I am too much your friend to want to be (…) the cause of a danger for Your Majesty or his dynasty. I propose therefore, with a cordiality equal to yours, that you withdraw immediately your troops from the American continent. On my part, guided by honour, I will seek to come to terms with my compatriots in a loyal way and worthy of a Habsburg (…)

When he comes to his senses after a good night’s sleep, he hastily sends his secretary, Félix Eloin, to Europe. He is glacially received in Paris, where the Emperor “didn’t even once shake hands” with him. The audience in Brussels with Charlotte’s brother, Leopold II (her father has died last December) was less unfriendly, but equally fruitless.

More delegations and representatives are sent on missions to Rome and Vienna, all of them to no avail. Almonte, returned to grace, -Max pays him the ambiguous compliment “the best that Mexico has produced”- has another go in Paris, but has to report back to the same effect as the message conveyed through Saillard.

In April 1866 John Bigelow, the U.S. Minister to France, after continuous pressure and polite threats, reaches an understanding with Napoleon: the troops in Mexico will be brought home in three stages, the last being set on November 1, 1867. On July 30 Napoleon proposes a new agreement to Maximilian: in exchange for half the revenues of the customs of Tampico and Vera Cruz, he is prepared to withdraw his troops not immediately but, yes: in three stages, the last on November 1, 1867.

And Napoleon means business: he instructs Bazaine formally to advance Maximilian’s government no more funds, and to pay only the auxiliary force. The Mexican army may dissolve.

To everyone it is as clear as day that the French are shutting up shop, and that the empire is finished. To everyone, except to Their Imperial Majesties, who have by now completely lost their way in cloud-cuckoo-land.
