First Continental Congress Convenes

It was on September 5, 1774 that the first Continental Congress convened at Carpenter's Hall (photo below) in Philadelphia. Fifty-six delegates from all the colonies except Georgia drafted a declaration of rights and grievances and elected Virginian Peyton Randolph as the first president of Congress. Patrick Henry, George Washington, John Adams, and John Jay were among the delegates.
The British Parliament, growing intolerant to colonial resistance passed the Coercive Acts, also known as the Intolerable Acts, in 1774. The Coercive Acts closed Boston to merchant shipping, established formal British military rule in Massachusetts, made British officials immune to criminal prosecution in America, and required colonists to quarter British troops. The colonists subsequently called the first Continental Congress to consider a united American resistance to the British.

This year's congress was absolutely fabulous! Guests and speakers came from throughout the country and we were also happy to include Bonnie and Steve from Tulsa. They are Gospel singers and always lifts people’s spirit.
I don’t think I am going to write very much on this blog this morning. I am meeting some others at the Christian Revival Center to take down flags, banners, clean-up etc. We always rent a few chairs and I took them back yesterday. We have about 40-50 of our own chairs but it is never enough. After I took the chairs back we drove down to Little Rock so Derek Black could catch his flight back home. Our broadcast over Stormfront was a real success and we really appreciate Derek Black at the controls of Stormfront. He can also play the guitar really well.
Heritage Connection’s new CD was a hit. People especially liked the song Aryan Warrior.
We continually receive calls from the media whenever they want to do a story about the White Nationalist movement. Both national and international media have learned that The Knights is the face of White Resistance.
Yesterday we spoke with reporters from Alabama, Washington D. C. And North Carolina. While the internet provides valuable information for people wanting to learn more about The Knights and White Nationalism, it is none-the-less important that we continually speak with members of the media in an effort to create an accurate image of White Nationalism instead of the bogus image that is portrayed by Morris Dees, the ADL and others with an anti-progessive agenda.
Those we spoke to yesterday were Doug Parish of the Metro Network News in Washington D.C., Kristin Collins of the News Observer in Raliegh, North Carolina and Greg Privetta of WHNT in Huntsville, Alabama.
I want to remind you that the annual White Christian Heritage Festival will be held on October 20 in Pulaski, Tenn.
This is a day long event held downtown Pulaski, Tennessee - only 70 miles south of Nashville. We have booths, live music and a walk for White Pride. If you weren’t able to come to congress this is something you ought to consider. I would like to meet many of my old friends there and also meet some new ones who will someday be added to those I can call my old friends.
Your prayers and continued support keeps us on the front line of this battle for our race, faith and homeland.
Thank you!
