Order of the Confederate Rose




confedr10This morning I discovered ‘The Order of the Confederate Rose’ the woman’s branch of the Sons of Confederate Veterans that was run by my kindred, Anthony Hodges, until Denne Sweeney and his neo-Confederate radicals took over. Governor Rick Perry met with Sweeney, and gave his blessing, as he did the idea of Texas seceding from the Union – once again.

The OCR honors Rose O’Neal, a Confederate Spy. In my blogs we have followed a real Rose Line to my Rosy ancestors who owned plantations in South Carolina and fought the British under Francis Marion. When the famous artist ‘Rosamond’ married a Benton, I became kin to Jessie Benton whose Scouts spied on the Confederacy and belligerent foreigners. The story of these two spies needs to be told and shown on our Nation’s silver screens. I will now try to find a producer for this movie that will show how my brother and I are divided along Civil War lines, he no doubt sympathetic to the Confederate Rose, while I find Jessie Benton-Fremont an unsung heroine the U.S.A.

The British settled a lawsuit brought against her by the U.S.A. for the damage the Alambama did during our Civil War.

This morning our President and Vice President took the oath of office for the second time. Congradulations! May the Aboltionist God – bless America!

Order of the Confederate Rose

Some SCV divisions have auxiliaries or support groups known as the Order of the Confederate Rose. The OCRs are primarily the ladies auxiliary to the SCV.[45][46] The organization was inspired by a conversation in January 1993, at a dinner in Birmingham, Alabama to commemorate Robert E. Lee’s birthday. The speaker Charles Lunsford told Jane Latture that a women’s group called the Order of Robert E. Lee had been organized in Georgia. Latture felt that many women in Alabama were concerned about “attacks on their confederate heritage”, and suggested to several friends that they create their own order. On May 1, 1993, 11 wives and daughters of members of the SCV met during the state convention and organized the Order of the Confederate Rose. Latture suggested the name based on the TV movie The Rose and the Jackal, about Rose O’Neal Greenhow, a Confederate spy. The organization was formally chartered with 65 members on October 16, 1993.[47]

The OCR does not have a national organization but a loose confederation of independent state societies. To form a state society, the minimum number of chapters is two. The following states have OCR societies: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Chapters or contacts exist in Maryland, New York, Indiana and Oregon.[48]
Membership requirements vary among the states. Most do not have lineage or ancestor requirements, and welcome males as well as females. Usually the only membership requirement is recommendation by a current OCR or SCV member.[49][50][51] Some societies state that they do not compete with the UDC.[49][52] The South Carolina society is unique in allowing its chapters to determine membership requirements, other than stating that no members may be “known felons” and that all members should conduct themselves as “ladies”.[53]

Some societies have specialized auxiliaries called the Order of the Black Rose or Society of the Black Rose. Yvonne Brown suggested these at the 1998 North Carolina OCR convention. Members of this subset take on the persona of Civil War mourners or widows; they dress in all-black period attire at SCV functions, memorials and grave dedications.[54] Each such society is led by a “Keeper of the Rite” who is the contact person; she keeps a list of “widows” available for particular functions. Black Rose societies have been formed in Texas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and Louisiana.[55][56][57]


In the 1990s, disagreements over the purpose of the organization emerged within the SCV. At issue was an alleged shift in the SCV’s mission from “maintaining gravestones, erecting monuments and studying Civil War history” to more issue-centric concerns. The SCV’s new concerns included “fight[ing] for the right to display Confederate symbols everywhere from schools to statehouses”.[34]

The more “activist” members of the SCV gained electoral support and were increasingly elected to its leadership positions.[35] Members of the more traditionalist camp alleged that the League of the South had influenced their organization’s new direction. One ally of the activist wing claimed that thousands of SCV members are also League of the South members.[35] News reports state that the activists advocate “picketing, aggressive lobbying, issue campaigning and lawsuits” in favor of what they term “heritage defense” to prevent “heritage violations”. The SCV defines those as “any attack upon our Confederate Heritage, or the flags, monuments, and symbols which represent it”.[35][36]
In 2002, SCV dissidents formed a new organization, Save the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SSCV), composed of members and former members of SCV.[37] According to SSCV co-founder Walter Charles Hilderman, “about a hundred or so individuals and groups identified themselves on the [SSCV] Web site as supporting Save the SCV” not long after the group was founded, though the current membership numbers for the SSCV are not available.[38] Boyd Cathey reported in the Southern Mercury that most of the dissension had ended by 2003, and the majority of the members of the SCV agreed with the heritage preservation activities espoused by the new SCV leadership.[39]

In early 2005, the SCV council sued to expel SCV president Dennis Sweeney from office. The court initially granted the council temporary control of the organization, but its final decision returned power to Sweeney. Thirteen of the 25 council members were expelled from the council shortly after Sweeney regained control. Nine of the council members expelled were former “Commanders-in-Chief” of the SCV, a status that heretofore had come with a life membership on the council.[40]

In February 2005, Cathey wrote in the Southern Mercury that most of the SCV’s members had united against the “War on Southern Culture”.[39] By the SCV’s summer 2005 convention, activists firmly controlled the council. They severed much of the SCV’s long-standing relationship with the more traditionalist Military Order of the Stars and Bars (MOSB).

MOSB, founded in 1938, had been closely involved with the SCV, sharing its headquarters since 1992 and co-publishing Southern Mercury. The MOSB’s Commander General, Daniel W. Jones, citing “the continuing political turmoil within the SCV”, moved the MOSB out of the shared quarters, ended the joint magazine publishing enterprise, and separated the two organizations’ finances. In 2006, for the first time, the two organizations held separate conventions.[35][41]
[edit] Criticism
In 2002, some reporters and a group of SCV dissenters criticized the SCV for its views of Civil War history and the organization’s alleged association with neo-confederate individuals and organizations. Joe Conason, writing in Salon, and Jason Zengerle, writing in The New Republic, argued that the SCV had morphed from an apolitical organization dedicated to Civil War history to a politicized organization dedicated to preserving the “Lost Cause” version of the war and its era.[42] The SCV says that “the preservation of liberty and freedom was the motivating factor in the South’s decision to fight the Second American Revolution”.[3]
The Civil War historian James M. McPherson has associated the SCV with the neo-confederate movement and in 2007 described board members of the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Virginia as “undoubtedly neo-Confederate”. He said that the SCV and the United Daughters of the Confederacy (UDC) have “white supremacy” as their “thinly veiled agendas”.[43] McPherson became considered a controversial figure among Confederate history groups; the UDC called for a boycott of his books and a letter-writing campaign against him. In response, McPherson said he did not mean to imply that all SCV or UDC chapters or everyone who belongs to them promotes a white supremacist agenda. He said that some of the people have a hidden agenda.[44]


The Rose and the Jackal was a 1990 TV movie produced by TNT starring Christopher Reeve and Madolyn Smith Osborne. The plot revolves around Union agent Allan Pinkerton, played by Reeves, falling in love with female spy Rose O’Neal Greenhow.[1]
The films title served as the inspiration for the name of the Order of the Confederate Rose, a women’s auxiliary to the Sons of Confederate Veterans.[2]

Rose O’Neal Greenhow (1813 or 1814 – October 1, 1864) was a renowned Confederate spy. As a leader in Washington, D.C. society during the period to prior the American Civil War, she traveled in important political circles and cultivated friendships with presidents, generals, senators, and high-ranking military officers, using her connections to pass along key military information to the Confederacy at the start of the war.

On May 31, 1862, Greenhow and her daughter were released from prison. Deported to Richmond, Virginia, Greenhow was hailed as a heroine by Southerners. Jefferson Davis welcomed her home and enlisted her as a courier to Europe. From 1863 to 1864, Greenhow traveled through France and Britain on a diplomatic mission for the Confederacy.
There was much sympathy for the South among European aristocrats. While in France, Greenhow was received in the court of Napoleon III at the Tuileries. In Britain, she had an audience with Queen Victoria and became engaged to Granville Leveson-Gower, 2nd Earl Granville. The details of her mission to Europe are recorded in her personal diaries, dated August 5, 1863, to August 10, 1864. Two months after arriving in London, Greenhow wrote her memoirs, titled My Imprisonment and the First Year of Abolition Rule at Washington, which sold well in Britain.[1]
[edit] Death
In September 1864, Greenhow left Europe to return to the Confederate States, carrying dispatches. She traveled on the Condor, a British blockade runner. On October 1, 1864, the Condor ran aground at the mouth of the Cape Fear River near Wilmington, North Carolina, while begin pursued by a Union gunboat, USS Niphon. Fearing capture and reimprisonment, Greenhow fled the grounded ship by rowboat. A wave capsized the rowboat, and Greenhow, weighed down with $2,000 worth of gold in a bag around her neck from her memoir royalties intended for the Confederate treasury, drowned.
When Greenhow’s body was recovered from the water near Wilmington, North Carolina, searchers found a copy of her book “Imprisonment” hidden on her person. Inside the book was a note meant for her daughter, Little Rose, which read:
London, Nov 1st 1863 You have shared the hardships and indignity of my prison life, my darling; And suffered all that evil which a vulgar despotism could inflict. Let the memory of that period never pass from your mind; Else you may be inclined to forget how merciful Providence has been in seizing us from such a people. Rose O’Neal Greenhow.

During the American Civil War, Granville was non-interventionist along with the majority of Palmerston’s cabinet. His memorandum against intervention in September 1862 drew Prime Minister Palmerston’s attention. The document proved to be a strong reason why Palmerston refused to intervene, and why Britain’s relations with the North remained basically stable throughout the rest of the conflict despite tensions.
From 1866 to 1868 he was in opposition, but in December 1868 he became Colonial Secretary in Gladstone’s first ministry. His tact was invaluable to the government in carrying the Irish Church and Land Bills through the House of Lords. On June 27, 1870, on Lord Clarendon’s death, he became foreign secretary. With war clouds gathering in Europe, Granville worked to authorize preliminary talks to settle American disputes and in appointing the British High Commission to sail to the United States and negotiate the most comprehensive treaty of the nineteenth century in Anglo-American relations with an American commission in Washington.
Lord Granville’s name is mainly associated with his career as foreign secretary (1870–1874 and 1880–1885). His Gladstonian foreign policy based on patience, peace, and no alliances kept Britain free from European wars. It brought better relations with the United States, and it was innovative in supporting Gladstone’s wish to settlement British-American fisheries and Civil War disputes over the Confederate cruisers built in Britain, like the Alabama, through international arbitration in 1872. For example, the long-standing San Juan Island Water Boundary Dispute in Puget Sound, which had been left ambiguous in the Oregon Treaty of 1846 to salve relations and get a treaty sorting out the primary differences, was arbitrated by the German Emperor also in 1872. In putting British-American relations up to the world as a model for how to resolve disputes peacefully, Granville helped create a breakthrough in international relations.[3]


The Southern Cross of Honor is also used as a symbol on the graves of Confederate veterans who served honorably. It can take two different forms which can sometimes both be seen on the same soldier’s grave.
One form is an outline of the Southern Cross engraved on the actual gravestone of the veteran.[3] This symbol is still available to be placed as an optional symbol of belief on a U.S. Veterans Administration issued gravestone.[4] This symbol will only be issued by the V.A. to be placed on the grave of a Confederate Veteran.[5] The symbol is also available to be placed on existing gravestones by some private monument companies and stone carvers.
The second form of the Southern Cross of Honor seen on Confederate graves is a two-sided, cast iron replica of the medal.[6] This cross stands atop a metal rod placed into the ground at the veteran’s grave. It is sometimes referred to as the “Iron Cross of Honor” or “SCV Iron Cross”. The cross is typically placed on Confederate graves by local chapters of the Sons of Confederate Veterans or by family members or interested parties related to the Confederate Veteran. The iron cross version of the SCH is available for purchase through several SCV chapters as well as several private foundries throughout the United States.[7] The grave of any Confederate Veteran who served honorably is eligible for placement of this symbol.

The Southern Cross of Honor is the name of two separate and distinct military honors presented to Confederate military personnel and veterans. The original wartime medal, aka Confederate Medal of Honor, was a military decoration meant to honor officers, noncommissioned officers, and privates for their valor in the armed forces of the Confederate States of America during the American Civil War. It was formally approved by the Congress of the Confederate States on October 13, 1862,[1] and was originally intended to be on par with the Union Army’s Medal of Honor.
During the war, however, there were shortages of metals, and many medals were not minted or awarded. The names of these soldiers were, however, recorded in an Honor Roll and preserved in the Adjutant Inspector General’s records.
The postwar version of the medal, which is a separate award than the original wartime medal, came into being following a reunion in 1898. The idea of bestowing the Southern Cross of Honor to Confederate veterans of the American Civil War was conceived in Atlanta in July 1898 by Mrs. Alexander S. (Mary Ann Lamar Cobb) Erwin of Athens, GA, at a reunion of Confederate veterans. Mrs. Erwin and Mrs. Sarah E. Gabbett of Atlanta are credited with the design of the medal. The medal was at this point authorized by the UDC to be awarded to any Confederate Veteran who had provided “loyal, honorable service to the South and given in recognition of this devotion.”[2]
The design for the face of the medal consists of a Maltese cross with a Confederate battle flag surrounded with a laurel wreath, with the inscription “The Southern Cross of Honor.” On the back of the medal is the motto of the Confederate States of America, “Deo Vindice” ([With] God [As Our] Vindicator), and the dates 1861 1865. Post-War versions (starting in 1898) added the inscription, “From the UDC to the UCV.” (UDC stands for the United Daughters of the Confederacy; UCV stands for the United Confederate Veterans.) The Southern Cross of Honor could only be bestowed through the United Daughters of the Confederacy. It could not be purchased; it was given in recognition of loyal, honorable service to the South and only a Confederate veteran could wear it. The first Cross ever bestowed was upon Mrs. Erwin’s husband, Captain Alexander S. Erwin, by the Athens (Ga.) Chapter on April 26, 1900.

During her two-year career as a commerce raider, Alabama caused disorder and devastation across the globe for Union merchant shipping. The Confederate cruiser claimed 65 prizes valued at nearly $6,000,000 (approximately $123,000,000 in today’s dollars[citation needed]). In an important development in international law, the U. S. Government pursued the “Alabama Claims” against the British Government for the devastation caused, and following a court of arbitration, won heavy damages.
Ironically, a decade before the beginning of the Civil War, Captain Semmes had observed:
“(Commerce raiders) are little better than licensed pirates; and it behooves all civilized nations […] to suppress the practice altogether.” –Raphael Semmes, 1851[16]

The Alabama Claims were a series of claims for damages by the U.S. government against the government of the United Kingdom for the assistance given to the Confederate cause during the American Civil War. After international arbitration endorsed the American position in 1872, Britain settled the matter by paying the United States $15.5 million for damages done by several warships built in Britain and sold to the Confederacy, thus ending the dispute and ensuring friendly relations.

British political involvement
Main article: Britain and the American Civil War
The British Prime Minister Lord Palmerston and Foreign Secretary Lord John Russell had allowed the Alabama to put to sea from the shipyards of John Laird Sons and Company in Birkenhead, despite the explicit objections of the American Legation in London and charges from the American Minister to Britain Charles Francis Adams that the ship was bound for the Confederacy. Though both the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary were thought to favor the Confederacy at the time of Alabama’s construction, this position was against British public opinion and MPs such as Richard Cobden campaigned against it. The subsequent release of the Alabama proved to be publicly embarrassing, and Palmerston and Russell were later forced to admit that the ship should not have been allowed to depart, despite the opinion of the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales that her release did not violate neutrality.
Even so, the next year two ironclad warships under construction in Birkenhead and destined for the Confederacy were detained after their completion but before their launch. As a direct consequence of the flap over the Alabama, rather than turn the ships over to Monsieur Bravay of Paris (who had ordered their construction as intermediary for Confederate principals), Palmerston instructed the British Admiralty to tender an offer for the purchase of the ships.
[edit] The claims
The United States claimed direct and collateral damage against Britain, the so-called Alabama Claims.
In the particular case of the Alabama the United States claimed that Britain had violated neutrality by allowing the Alabama to be constructed, knowing that it would enter into service with the Confederacy.
There were other particulars as well. In the summer of 1862, the British-built warship Oreto, later renamed the CSS Florida, was delivered to Nassau in the Bahamas with the intention of its being transferred to the Confederate Navy. British Admiral George Willes Watson (1827-1897) aided the transfer, and Watson’s actions were considered by the tribunal.[1]
[edit] Payment
Senator Charles Sumner, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, originally wanted to ask for $2 billion, or alternatively the ceding of Canada to the United States. When American Secretary of State William H. Seward negotiated the Alaska Purchase in 1867, he intended it as the first step in a comprehensive plan to gain control of the entire northwest Pacific Coast. Seward was a firm believer in Manifest Destiny, primarily for its commercial advantages to the United States. Seward expected British Columbia to seek annexation to the United States and thought Britain might accept this in exchange for the Alabama claims. Soon other elements endorsed annexation, Their goal was to annex British Columbia, Red River Colony (Manitoba), and Nova Scotia, in exchange for the dropping the damage claims. The idea reached a peak in the spring and summer of 1870, with American expansionists, Canadian separatists, and British anti-imperialists seemingly combining forces. The plan was dropped for multiple reasons. London continued to stall, American commercial and financial groups pressed Washington for a quick settlement of the dispute on a cash basis, growing Canadian nationalist sentiment in British Columbia called for staying inside the British Empire, Congress became preoccupied with Reconstruction, and most Americans showed little interest in territorial expansion.[2][3]
[edit] Treaty of Washington
Further information: Treaty of Washington (1871), Hamilton Fish, and Presidency of Ulysses S. Grant
In 1871, President Grant’s appointed Secretary of State Hamilton Fish, worked out an agreement with British representative Sir John Rose in Washington to create a commission consisting of six members from the British Empire and six members from the United States to resolve the Alabama claims, refinancing, and other international disputes between Canada and the United States by treaty.[4]On March 8, 1871 the Treaty of Washington was signed at the State Department and the U.S. Senate ratified the treaty on May 24, 1871.[5]According to the treaty, an international arbitration tribunal met in Geneva. The treaty included the settlement process for the Alabama Claims, settled disputed Atlantic fisheries and the San Juan Boundary (concerning the Oregon boundary line). Britain and the United States became perpetual allies after the treaty, with Britain having expressed regret over the Alabama damages. [6]

The purpose of the Order of Confederate Rose (OCR) is to assist the Sons of Confederate Veterans (SCV) in its historical, educational, benevolent, and social functions. The OCR educates the public about Confederate History by honoring and preserving its symbols. This ring has been created for individuals who have sites which promote pride in their Confederate Heritage. It is open but NOT limited to, membership by members of OCR State Societies and Chapters; Sons of Confederate Veterans and Mechanized Cavalry websites.

          The Black Rose is part of the Texas Society Order of Confederate Rose. The purpose of the Black Rose is to participate in Memorial, Marker Dedications and Graveside Services. In the 1860’s widows would dress in all black attire, also known as “Widow Weeds” during a period of mourning. The ladies who supported the widow (her friends) at the funeral would also be dressed in black.  The ladies wore black because they did not want to attract attention to themselves.
            As members of the Black Rose we portray the widow and her friends.  We dress in “Widow Weeds” and assist the Sons of Confederate Veterans and the United Daughters of the Confederacy with their Memorial, Marker Dedications and Graveside Services. We pay our respect with a small service which includes laying flowers, sprinkling rose petals or placing a wreath on the gravesite. 
            The requirements to be a member of the Black Rose are:
1.     Be a member of the TSOCR in good standing.
2.     Have the proper 1860’s style clothing.  Consisting of the following:
a.  Black dress or black skirt and blouse.
b.  Black hat with mourning veil.
c.  Black gloves.
d.  Black cape, shawl or jacket if worn
e.  No jewelry except jet black earrings, a brooch, or a wedding ring.
3.     There are no membership fees for the Black Rose.
The picture of the lady at the top of this page is a lady in “Widow Weeds”.  The picture was taken from the book, “Who wore what?” by Juanita Leisch

Despite a White House rejection, supporters of a petition signed by more than 100,000 people continue to forge ahead with a petition allowing Texas to secede from the U.S.

Supporters of the petition, the Texas Nationalist Movement, met with Republican leaders last week, The New York Times reports. The group wants Texas to sever its federal ties and become an independent nation, the newspaper reports.

In April 2009, Rick Perry, the Governor of Texas, appeared to endorse a resolution supporting Texan sovereignty at a Tea Party in Austin, Texas, following a question from a reporter.
There’s a lot of different scenarios. Texas is a unique place. When we came into the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that…. My hope is that America, and Washington in particular, will pay attention. We’ve got a great union. There’s absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, who knows what may come of that? But Texas is a very unique place, and a pretty independent lot to boot.

When 23-year-old college student Micah Hurd posted an online petition last month asking the White House to allow the Lone Star State to secede, nearly 120,000 people rallied behind him — making it the most popular petition in the 16 months that the Obama administration has been soliciting them.
But one group was not so supportive: Hurd’s superiors in the 4th Regiment of the Texas State Guard, a force of unarmed volunteers who help in cases of natural disaster or other emergencies in the state.
“Any mention of secession had better happen on a civilian venue, as private citizens registering an opinion,” chided regiment commander Howard Palmer in an e-mail to colleagues on Nov. 14, five days after Hurd posted his petition. “It’s only talk, and rather ignorant talk at that. If you’ve already done something to call attention to yourself or our regiment in this matter, make it go away.”
Hurd, who had been featured in several news articles, was instructed to stop speaking with reporters, his father, Patrick Hurd, said in an interview. The younger Hurd, who declined to comment for this article, was questioned about his motives and asked to sign an affidavit swearing that the State Guard was not involved, his father said.
“He was told the guard is conducting the investigation to ensure that the guard has not in any way been implicated in the petition or talk of seceding,” said Patrick Hurd, a pastor in Weatherford, Tex., who added that his son believes his actions are protected under the First Amendment.
The friction between Micah Hurd and his superiors comes as the secession movement has gained national headlines in the wake of President Obama’s reelection last month. The White House’s “We the People” petition Web site has been flooded with secession petitions from all 50 states, attracting more than 1 million total signatories.

Eight petitions have reached the 25,000-signature threshold that guarantees a response from the White House. Administration officials said that while they do not support secession, they will formally respond to the petitioners in the next few weeks.
The movement has quickly become a form of political protest for those who did not support Obama. The issue is particularly sensitive in Texas, where Gov. Rick Perry (R) was once an aspiring challenger to Obama. During a tea party rally in 2009, Perry appeared to suggest that secession was an option.
Asked last month about Hurd’s petition, Perry press secretary Catherine Frazier told the Dallas Morning News that the governor “believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it.” She added, however, that Perry “also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government.”
Legal experts said members of the U.S. military have limited free-speech rights under certain circumstances. This spring, the Marine Corps discharged Sgt. Gary Stein after he criticized Obama on Facebook and other Web sites.
But Hurd falls under different rules because his unit is not on federal duty, said Gary Solis, a military law expert and adjunct professor at Georgetown University.



My Mortal Enemy – Denne Sweeney
Denne Sweeny took over the leadership of the Sons of Confederate Veterans from
my kinfolk, Anthoney Hodges. Above we see Sweeney ‘The Neo-Confederate Swine’
parading around with grown men in Confederate uniforms carrying Confederate
flags. He is the big guy in gueenish-grey coat. Here are some of the captions
that go with these photos. It sounds like Sweeney is commanding a imaginary army
standing up for “their ancestors” who have risen from the dead, risen from their
graves! Is this Judgment Day, or, Lord of the Rings?
“Our Texas Division leaders were there standing up for their ancestors. (l-r)
Steve von Roeder, 2nd Lt. Commander; Denne Sweeney, Division Commander; Steve
Lucas, 1st Lt. Commander.
Commander Manning (and George Ballentine) get an audience with Representative
Suzanna Gratia Hupp representing District 54.
Texas Division Commander, Denne Sweeney, gives us our marching orders.”
One could say that when Joe Wilson called our President a liar, and when the
Speaker of the House and President Obama shot Wilson a hard stare, the
make-believe world of Denne Sweeney came alive because that shout is going to
play a big role in American History. Once again, the Confederate Traitors are –
up to bat! But, are they for real? How can they own real credibility if they are
coming out of the Republican Party founded by Radical Republicans who hated
everthing Sweeney stands for, and indeed, wanted to put his kind behind bars and
give their land to their Black Slaves!
No doubt Sweeney and his Swine are Republicans and Evangelicals who have
compromised their alleged Family Moral Traditions by being members of the
Republican party founded by Freethinkers, Ahteists, and Socialists. This has
tainted their make-believe religion founded by John Darby. This membership cast
doubt on their hegemony, their claim God gave them America and the Constitution.
THEY ARE COMPROMISED AND CORRUPTED! They are with sin! They should leave the
Republican Party – post haste – or lose their immortal soul and place in the
Second Coming of their “Killer Jesus” in the End Time Tribulation! Is this
tribulation for real? Will the Cohens rebuild Zion and the Temple?
A year ago I posted this. An hour ago I discovered what I have been searching
for for three years. The De Costa family helped establish Scottish Rite
Freemasonry in America. This family descends for King David, and thus are kin to
Isaac De Costa, one of the deputies commissioned to establish Morin’s Rite of
the Royal Secret in other countries, formed constituent bodies of the Rite in
South Carolina in 1783, which eventually became, in 1801, The Supreme Council of
the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, Southern Jurisdiction. All regular
Scottish Rite bodies today derive their heritage from this body.Subsequently,
other Supreme Councils were formed in Saint-Domingue in 1802, in France in 1804,
in Italy in 1805, and in Spain in 1811.[19]
The Rosamond and Hodges family came to own the “Jew’s land” that was owned by
the Da Costa family. Over a year ago I suggested the Neo-Confederate
Secessionists migrate to South Carolina in a New Exosdus, and build the new
Temple of Zion there. However, the Sephardic Jews led by Da Costa Cohens, were
heavily involved in the Slave Trade, and thus – ARE COMPROMISED AND CORRUPTED IN
This is the real Di Vinci Code, the real Rose Line, for this is all revealed in
the search of my Rosy Ancestors. This is the Greatest Story ever told! I have
already gathered most of my Angelic Army from the ranks of my Ancestors. The War
of Words for hearts and minds of the American People is becoming a firestorm!
Who shall lead my Nazarite Army of God? Will it be the Black Madonna my Rosemond
kinfolk worshipped in Holland that we see being carried in the Streets?
John The Nazarite Prophet
The Hodge family purchased land in South Carolina that once belonged to Francis
Salvador, a famous Jew who was killed in the Revolutionary War. This land was in
the 96th district where James Rosamond bought large tracts of land. This land is
titled the “Jews land” in the Hodge family genealogy. The Jews who owned this
land are kin to Jesus.
Rebecca Mendes da Costa also owned much property in the 96th. district. She was
of a famous Sephardic family, too, she kin to Doctor Mendes who tutored the
famous artist, Vincent Van Gough. The Salvador family lived in the Hague.
Francis Salvador, a wealthy Jewish merchant of London, applied to the Earl
Marshall in 1744 for a confirmation of the coat of arms that his father had
borne in Portugal, and on June 18 of that year, he received a grant of these
arms. His grandson, also named Francis, settled on a plantation of nearly seven
thousand acres in Ninety Six District. The lion might represent the tribe of
Judah, and thus the Exilarchs of Portugal.
Today, Congress should take the final step to bring God’s Spiritual Liberation
back into the world. Not since tens of thousand of devout Jews and Saints hurled
darts and stones down upon the Roman legions in defense of God’s House in 70
A.D. has humankind been so free. I have shown that this battle was a Jubilee
Rebellion where Go’el the Redeemer had declared all Jews free of their debts.As
many as two thirds of the white folk who came to America in the early years were
indentured slaves. Today, the descendants of those slaves, along with the black
slaves, forgave those they were, and are in debt to, and with their own money
rescued them from ruin. Many banks backed the slave trade. The Mended de Costa
family founded many powerful banks with profits they made from their involvement
in the slave trade. That these descendants of King David and Jesus could have
become wealthy slave masters, speaks volumes on how cleverly Jesus’ TRUE MESSAGE
and MISSION was oppressed and altered. Today, in the Spirit of Lord’s Prayer and
Divine Forgiveness THE KINGDOM OF GOD find a home in America. This is a Historic
and Biblical event without equal.
Today, every American should know who they are! When our Founding Fathers wrote
the Constitution they did not give black folk their freedom or a right to vote.
They did not give women the right to vote. How then is our Government God-given?
We are Liberated and Redeemed by our Gracious Hearts, our ability to forgive
those who put us in bonds. This is a Great Nation of Free People – free alas –
for We are all Redeemers!

One Response to Order of the Confederate Rose

    Sarah Palin and her supporters have used the Gladston flag of South Carolina to further the cause of the Tea Party. She just called for the Confederate flag to be flown at the White House to show that evangelical values have returned. ““I think that’s an idiotic idea, to tell you the truth,” the former Alaska Gov. said. “That flag represents a lot of things from the past. True, some were very bad, and there’s no escaping that. But, there were also good things that flag stands for, and I for one won’t let it be cast aside as a tool used by those looking to exploit the tragedy in Charleston. It’s part of our past and those who do not remember their past often don’t have a future.”
    Palin also mentioned part of her hopes for the upcoming 2016 presidential election: “And you know something else? I was born in Idaho, so I’m not a Southern girl by birth, but I support and believe in traditional southern values with all of my heart. In fact, I hope we finally get to put the Confederate flag on the White House next year. Not only would that be a radical and positive turn in American politics, but it would also say “in your face” to those who are looking to make true Americans forget who they are.”
