On this date, October 31, 1517 German Augustinian monk Martin Luther, 31, nailed to the door of the castle church in Wittenberg (Germany) a list of 95 theological points he wished to debate ... and touched off the Protestant Reformation!

Martin Luther (November 10, 1483 – February 18, 1546) was a German monk, theologian, and church reformer. He is also considered to be the founder of Protestantism.

Luther's theology challenged the authority of the papacy by emphasizing the Bible as the sole source of religious authority. According to Luther, salvation was attainable only by faith in Jesus as the Messiah, a faith unmediated by the church. These ideas helped to inspire the Protestant Reformation and changed the course of Western civilization.

From 1510 to 1520, Luther lectured on the Psalms, the books of Hebrews, Romans and Galatians. As he studied these portions of the Bible, he came to view the use of terms such as penance and righteousness by the Roman Catholic Church in new ways. He became convinced that the church had lost sight of what he saw as several of the central truths of Christianity, the most important of which, for Luther, was the doctrine of justification — God's act of declaring a sinner righteous — by faith alone. He began to teach that salvation or redemption is a gift of God's grace, attainable only through faith in Jesus as the messiah.

Luther is also known for his writings about the Jews, the nature and consequences of which are the subject of scholarly debate. His statements that Jews' homes should be destroyed, their synagogues burned, money confiscated, and liberty curtailed, were revived and given widespread publicity by the Nazis in Germany in 1933–45.
The most famous of his writings on the Jews are contained in his book, The Jews and Their Lies. I have a copy of this book in my library.
I normally post on this blog on Tuesday through Saturday, however I was unable to do so yesterday as I was knee deep in research for an article for the current issue of The Torch which I have titled Blood Linage dealing with the transfer of the Davidic Throne in Israel to Ireland in 583 B.C. This occurred under the guidance of Jeremiah the prophet who was known in Irish tradition as Ollam Folla. The daughter of King Zedekiah, (Tea Tephi) inherited the right to rule at the death of her brothers who were all killed by Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon in the plains of Jericho. In Ireland she married, Eochaid, a prince of the Tuatha de Danaan.

Anyway I have more more written on this in the current issue of The Torch, If you would like a sample copy write to: Thomas Robb Ministries / P.O. Box 354 / Bergman, AR 72615. A dollar or two to help on printing and postage is appreciated but not necessary.

I finished this article late last Monday nights and then took it to the printer on Tuesday and it is being assembled with the cover etc. and hopefully will be in the mail by the first part of next week. It will still be about 2-3 weeks for those of you who are subscribers to get it in your mail box.

Don’t forget the Christmas Fellowship Conference on December 1 and 2. This is our smaller event of the year, but one that everyone really enjoys. We have speeches, games, music and wonderful fellowship. Come if you can!

It was on this day in 1787 that The Federalist Papers first began to be made available to the citizens of New York. The Federalist Papers consisted of 85 essays written by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and James Madison. The Federalist Papers were written to bring support for the ratification of the Constitution. They also warned against the evils of a democracy favoring a Constitutional Republic.
I worked in my office all of yesterday preparing another issue of The Torch. Those of you who are not subscribers can write to P. O. Box 354, Bergman, AR 72615 and ask for a sample copy. I have the main article in this issue titled, Blood Linage. It deals with the removal of David’s throne in Judah and how Jeremiah the prophet was instrumental in bringing the daughters of the disposed King Zedekiah and thus the throne of Israel to Ireland in 583 BC.
If this is new to you and you have never heard of this before I especially urge you to write for a sample copy. A dollar or two to help cover printing and postage would be appreciated.

Erie Canal Opens

The Erie Canal was opened on this day in 1825. The Erie Canal is a canal in New York State, that runs from the Hudson River to Lake Erie, connecting the Great Lakes with the Atlantic Ocean. Although the canal was first proposed in 1699, it was not until 1798 that the Niagara Canal Company was incorporated and commenced preparations for building. The first section of canal was completed in 1819, and the entire canal was opened on October 26, 1825. It was 363 miles long, 40 feet wide, and 4 feet deep.

The Erie Canal was the first transportation route faster than carts pulled by draft animals between the Eastern Seaboard of the United States and the western interior, and cut transport costs into what was then wilderness by about 95%. The Canal resulted in a massive population surge in western New York, and opened regions further west to increased settlement.

We had a busy day yesterday. David Long was over about 9:30 in the morning and we spent into the early afternoon working in the Christian Revival Center. After we returned from Pulaski the U-Haul trailers were quickly unloaded with all our our equipment put in the Revival Center. It was a real mess. Of course it was late in the evening and we were all tired so we just unloaded. Richard Hensley pulled one U-Haul and Scott Pendergraft pulled the other U-Haul and they had to drive into town to drop them off and avoid paying another day rent.

Everything was scattered all over the place. We were too tired to put anything away so we left it. David was unable to go to Pulaski, but he was there to help put things away. The storage room needed to be cleaned out so we did that first. After the storage room was finished we began repacking things back in the storage room. It sure looks good to see everything in an orderly place.

The White Christian Heritage Festival was a real treat and once again a wonderful success. Throughout the day people walked through the area, visiting and picking up literature. And those attending always enjoy taking part in the Walk for White Pride. I do hope you will make plans to attend next year.

Don’t forget the Christmas Fellowship Conference on December 1 and 2. This is our smaller event of the year, but one that everyone really enjoys. We have speeches, games, music and wonderful fellowship. Come if you can!

God bless!

Pictures of Pulaski

I am sorry that I have not been consistent with the Blog over the last few days but things have been crazy. We came back from our trip to North Carolina and only had a few days until our trip to Pulaski. We did manage get The Crusader in the mail last Thursday (18th) and so those of you who are subscribers should be getting it soon. On Tuesday, Rachel Pendergraft did an hour live radio interview on XM169 in Washington D. C. We have already had several responses to the interview.

I am including some pictures of our event in Pulaski. The picture above shows bags of literature promoting the festival in Pulaski. We
were able to get a 1,000 fliers rolled up Friday evening after we arrived in Pulaski and then some good supporters from North Carolina distributed them throughout the night.

Christian Heritage Festival

The White Christian Heritage Festival in Pulaski went extremely well. On Thursday, the 18th we loaded up all of our equipment into two rented Uhaul trailers. Most of us didn’t get to bed until about 1 am and then we were up at 4 to begin the 10 hour trip to Pulaski.

At around 8:30 Saturday morning to our assembly area and began setting things up around 9 AM. Throughout the day we had music, fellowship, booths, lots of food to eat and a concert by Heritage Connection at noon. At 1 PM everyone gathered for our annual Walk for White Pride. Marchers stretched back as far as the eye could see. It was a beautiful site. I am going to put on at least one picture now and will add a lot more tomorrow.

The picture is of Rachel Pendergraft and myself as we begin the Walk for White Pride. Immediately above Rachel you can see the portion of the American Flag being held by my wife, Muriel.

God bless!


We have just returned from our annual White Christian Heritage Festival in Pulaski, Tennessee. It was a great event and a lot of people coming through the exhibits. I have a funeral to attend to this morning but I will be putting pictures up on this blog tonight and perhaps tomorrow also. God bless and thank you for loving America!

Since returning from our trip to North Carolina we have been extremely busy catching up on mail, working on The Torch and also the Crusader.

We have gotten the Crusader back from the printer and I along with others have been preparing it for mailing. It is going out a few days later than I thought it would but it will be in the mail on Thursday. Those of you who get the Crusader should have it in your mail in about 10 to 14 days.
Richard Hensley, will be driving our equipment to Pulaski this year. Cole W. who usually drives the truck and trailer is having some medical tests and will be unable to haul our equipment this year.

Getting everything to Pulaski and set up for the White Christian Heritage Festival is quite an ordeal but it is necessary if we want everything to go good and look good.

We will be recording this weeks edition of This is the Klan for our internet TV news program Wednesday afternoon as well as recording the new edition of The Global Minority Report.

The White Christian Heritage Festival is only a few days away. We will be leaving about 4 am on Friday morning and we at our motel that evening. On Saturday morning we will be downtown Pulaski and begin set up.

The Walk for White Pride is scheduled for 1pm. I hope to see many of our old friends there and to meet some new ones.

God bless and drive careful!

Knights Bring Home Victory!

I have been unable to write on this blog for several days. The computer in the business center at the motel we stayed at in Greensboro had a horrible keyboard. It was difficult to type on and after sending the last blog last Thursday night I gave up trying to write anymore until I got back to my office.

The schedule was to meet with a mediator on Friday and then meet for a deposition with opposing counsel on Monday.

For those of you who may not be informed on this issue I want to brief you on what the legal controversy was about.

Literature had been distributed in Greensboro, North Carolina over the last several years. This, of course, is no different than other areas where friends and supporters distribute literature. Often times people will take old discarded newspapers and separate them so that Knights Party literature can be rolled up on the outside of the section, which is used as weight, and then deliver them as a paperboy (papergirl) might deliver newspapers.

This is perfectly legal, as a newspaper does not retain ownership of a newspaper after it has been sold or discarded.

This was the situation in Greensboro, NC. A local newspaper, The Rhino Times, decided to file a law suit against The Knights. While their position was very weak, it is still one we had to respond to. If we did not we would have lost by default.

In writing the story for their own publication they stated that we have a long history of violence and intimidation. This article was posted on the internet. Our local attorney quickly filed a $50,000 lawsuit here in Boone County, Arkansas for slander. Which, of course, they never saw coming. There is no doubt in my mind that they never expected us to put up a fight.

When the lawsuit first came upon us we were concerned about finding an attorney and it wasn’t until the time period for us to do so was almost expired that we did get our attorney which came through a contact I made 30 years ago.

The Rhino Times suit against us was without merit. As they saw us mounting our defense they began making offers to settle out of court. I was confident they did not want to go to court because they had made claims of financial loss. If they had a financial loss then we were going to ask them to establish this loss and the only way they could do this was to open up their books and let us look at them.

Throughout the past year they actually made four offers to settle out of court. Each time I turned them down and said the only thing they can do to make this go away is for them to dismiss the action against us.

On Friday, with our attorneys, Jason Robb and David Sherrill, I meet John Hammer, the editor of The Rhino Times and a court appointed mediator. Again they offered to settle and again I refused.

I told the mediator that I did not want to go to court, but was confident that if we did go to court I could win. But that even if we lost, I was sure I could get the issue into federal court and win on grounds of constitutionally protected rights.

After about three hours with the attorneys and the mediator, Rhino Times went limp like a wet dishrag. They withdrew their lawsuit on the contingency that we would dismiss our lawsuit in Arkansas and that we would not take further action against them for this malicious unmerited lawsuit they filed against us.

I want to say that I believe God had a hand in this. I found it interesting that we won this major victory for The Knights and white people everywhere, at the same location that is considered the cradle of the civil rights movement. I don’t know if this was coincidence or providence.

The office where we met the mediator was across the street from the Woolworth store where on February 1, 1960 four black street agitators sat at a lunch counter in the white section and refused to move. This created national publicity and the Woolworth store remains an icon in the civil rights movement.

Also I am of the firm opinion that without the financial backing of so many of you, this victory could not have happened. At each step and at each decision I knew two things:

1) Each of you was counting on me to make the right decision. I could not let you down and I could not take the easy path.

2) I knew that there was money to fight back. Without your help I could not have mounted the legal defense we did. Without your help I would have had an empty financial war chest and there would have been no money to fight. But because I knew that you were there and the money was there I was prepared to go all the way without a flinch. I was confident - with arrogant faith - in our final victory.

I appreciate all of you that helped. We still have several thousand dollars to pay on the final legal bill so I am still counting on you to help in this matter.

I am going to post some pictures. I may arrange them in order, but if it is too time consuming then I won’t.

Also I am going to leave this post on for a couple of days so people can look at it. Without having to scroll down and possibly miss it. So after I post this I will not write on this blog until Tuesday morning (16th). I don’t usually post on Sunday or Monday anyway. This way the announcement of this victory will be at the top for people to view.

Again, I am hoping to see a lot of you in Pulaski on October 20th. We are going to have a great time and wonderful fellowship. Heritage Connection will be there and if you are within 500 miles this is something you will want to bring the family to.

Don’t forget the Winter Fellowship Conference on December 1 and 2.

God bless!

This is a picture of me calling back home announcing our victory against The Rhino Times.

This is my Rhino tie which I wore for the meeting with the mediator and intended to wear for the deposition. I thought it was appropriate and possibly irritate the Rhino Times editor, "just a little."

Our Arkansas attorney, Jason Robb, ready to "do battle" with The Rhino Times. He entered the North Carolina court as pro hoc vice. He was also the one that filed the $50,000 lawsuit against The Rhino Times in Arkansas for slander.
Jason refused to accept any legal fees, other than actual court costs.

Jason Robb and myself returning from our victory after The Rhino Times dismissed the lawsuit against The Knights.

As we were leaving the motel on Friday morning to meet with John Hammer, Editor of The Rhino Times and the court appointed mediator we noticed this copy of The Rhino Times in the trash. Was God telling us something? Rhino Times was going to be trashed in just a couple of hours.

We were suppose to get an economy car at the airport, but they were all out so they gave us this Pontiac SUV. It was nice! I hated to get back home to my 1998 Chevy van.

While in Greensboro we had the pleasure to meet up with our old friend A. J. Barker. It was good to see him again.

With the dismissal of the lawsuit we ended up with some spare time on our hands. Our return trip wasn't until Tuesday. Monday morning we went to see the battle grounds of Guilford Courthouse which was fought on March 15th, 1781. This battle was considered a win for the British commander, Cornwallis, but the fact it that it was a expensive victory. Cornwallis lost about a quarter of his troops and was forced to retreat to Yorktown, Virginia where in October he surrendered to Washington. The monument is to Nathaniel Greene, the commander of the American military.

This is a headstone of an American militiaman. He was born in 1752 and died in 1833

The foot prints of the four black agitators cast in bronze. They sat at a lunch counter refusing to move. Children are taught about how brave they were, but the fact is they were surrounded by reporters, camera and police to insure their safety.

Jason Robb and I in the professional building where the attorneys for the Rhino Times maintain their office. You can see the bottom of their windows directly above my head.

This is Jason and I in front of The Rhino Times office.

Here I am at the front door of their office.

Jason and I at the law office of David Sherrill in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Again, I want to thank all of you who stand faithfully behind The Knights and our efforts to proclaim White Christian Revival to America.
Without your help we could not continue. God bless you all!
Hail Victory!

Washington Informs Congress of Espionage

On this day in 1775, General George Washington writes to the president of the Continental Congress, John Jay, to inform him that a letter from Dr. Benjamin Church, surgeon general of the Continental Army, to Lieutenant General Sir Thomas Gage, British commander in chief for North America, had been intercepted. Washington wrote, "I have now a painful tho' a Necessary Duty to perform respecting Doctor Church, Director General of the Hospital."
Washington described how a coded letter to a British officer, Major Crane, came into Washington’s possession by a convoluted route from "a Woman who was kept by Doctor Church." Washington "immediately secured the Woman, but for a long time she was proof against every threat and persuasion to discover the Author, however at length she was brought to a confession and named Doctor Church. I then immediately secured him and all his papers."
The woman Washington interrogated was the mistress of Dr. Benjamin Church, a renowned Boston physician, who was active in the Massachusetts Committee of Safety and served as a member of the Provincial Congress. In July 1775, Washington had named Church the first surgeon general of the Continental Army, only to find out three months later that he had been spying for the British since 1772. Church faced an army court martial on October 4, 1775.
Despite Church’s plea of innocence, and the inconsequential nature of the information he provided to Crane, the contents of the letter included Church’s statement of allegiance to the British crown. He was charged with treason, convicted and sentenced to life in prison. After becoming ill while incarcerated, Dr. Church was exiled to the West Indies. The ship in which he traveled is believed to have been lost at sea.
On November 7, 1775, shortly after the conviction of Dr. Church, the Continental Congress added a mandate for the death penalty as punishment for acts of espionage to the "articles of war."

Jasn Robb, my Arkansas attorney and I are in Greensboro, North Carolina, although this morning we had our doubts whether or not we would make it. We left for the airport about 3:45 for the 2 1/2 hour trip. According to our ticket we were to fly from the Fayetteville airport at 7:25. So leaving at 3:45 should have gotten us to the airport by 6:30. I had been to the airport in Fayetteville several times before, but it has been 10 or 12 years since I was last there. The problem occured when we got to the airport we found out it had moved. The ticket said we would fly out of Fayetteville but it turned out that the Fayetteville airport was no longer in Fayetteville. It was now about 4o miles north of Fayetteville. In fact, it was even north of Springdale. We set our sights to get to the new airport (which was not in Fayetteville) and as you guess, we did not make it in time. The tickets we had were non-refundable and they were nor trasferrable, you know the kind you get off of priceline etc. to savemoney. The ticket clerk informed us of the nature of the ticket, but then said, "You are being really nice for someone who just missed their plane, I'll be right back." About 5 minutes later she returned and said she has spoken to her supervisor and they have agreed to allow us fly another flight. So we got on another plane and actually arrived in North Carolina about an hour earlier then our original flight would have gotten us here.
We are checked into our motel and have spoken to our NC attorney. We are to be at his office about 12:30 and then meet with the mediator at 2pm.
I ask everyone to pray for a successful trip.
I am not sure how much I will be able to write on my blog while here, but I will not my best to keep you update. Unfortuately I won't be able to show any pictures until I return. The key board on this computer in the business center of the motel is bad and it is difficult to type on it.
God bless you all.

Work on Mt. Rushmore Began on this Day!

On this day in 1927, sculpting begins on the face of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills National Forest of South Dakota. It would take another 12 years for the impressive granite images of four of America’s most revered and beloved presidents — George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt--to be completed.

The monument was the brainchild of a South Dakota historian named Doane Robinson, who was looking for a way to attract more tourists to his state. He hired a sculptor named Gutzon Borglum to carve the faces into the mountain. According to the National Park Service, the first face to be chiseled was George Washington’s; Borglum first sculpted the head as an egg shape, his features added later. Thomas Jefferson’s image was originally fashioned in the space to the right of Washington, but, within two years, the face was badly cracked. Workers had to blast the sculpture off the mountain using dynamite. Borglum then started over with Jefferson situated on the left side of Washington.

Washington’s face was the first to be completed in 1934. Jefferson’s was dedicated in 1936--with then-president Franklin Roosevelt in attendance--and Lincoln’s was completed a year later. In 1939, Teddy Roosevelt’s face was completed. The project, which cost $1 million, was funded primarily by the federal government.

Borglum continued to touch up his work at Mount Rushmore until he died suddenly in 1941. Borglum had originally hoped to also carve a series of inscriptions into the mountain, outlining the history of the United States.

Borglum also worked on the sculpture at Stone Mountain, Georgia, however because of disputes he retired from the project. Later others worked on the creating a sculpture in honor of the Confederacy and finally was completed in 1972 with the images of Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis.

Borglum, who went on to create the sculpture at Mt Rushmore was a member of the Ku Klux Klan.
Whew, it’s early. We have to leave at 3:30 for the airport.
Had a water leak at the Christian Revival Center and so I was over there yesterday morning doing plumbing work. It didn’t take long.

Yesterday we also recorded another edition of This is the Klan for our internet TV show and also recorded an edition for the Global Minority Report radio show.

Then got packed and went to bed, not as early as I wanted. We have to be at the airport about 6:30 am and it is 2 ½ hours from here so we have to get on the road.
We meet with the court ordered mediator tomorrow and then meet for a deposition with opposing counsel at 1 pm on Monday.
I am not sure if I will be able to send anything up to my blog until Wednesday, October 20th. So if you don’t see anymore until then you will know why. Otherwise there will be more reports.

Again, I am hoping to see a lot of you in Pulaski on October 20th.

Don’t forget the Winter Fellowship Conference on December 1 and 2.

God bless!

Myles Standish Dies on this day in 1656

Captain Myles Standish Kt. (c. 1584 – October 3, 1656), was an English-born professional soldier hired by the Pilgrims as military advisor for Plymouth colony. Arriving on the Mayflower, he worked on colonial defense. On February 17, 1621, he was appointed the first commander of Plymouth colony. Later, he served as Plymouth's representative in England, and served as assistant governor and as the colony's treasurer. He was also one of the founders of the town of Duxbury, Massachusetts.

After the Pilgrims hired Standish as Military Captain for the voyage to America, he was soon to be one of the members to sign the Mayflower Compact at Cape Cod November 11, 1620. After the voyage, Standish was elected Military Captain of the colony by the leadership of the Pilgrims.

Soon after arriving at Plymouth, the first illness struck the Pilgrims and this sickness took his wife Rose’s life, on January 29, 1621; In 1623, a woman named Barbara came to Plymouth on the ship Anne, and Myles married her that same year. Myles and Barbara had seven children together. They were Charles (died young), Alexander (who married Sarah Alden, daughter of John Alden and Priscilla Mullins), John, Myles, Loara, Josiah, and Charles
Through all the continued sickness, Standish was one of the seven that did not get sick; William Bradford quoted:

"But that was most sad and lamentable was, that in two or three months’ time half of their company died, especially in January and February.... So as their died some times two or three of a day in the foresaid time, that 100 and odd persons, scarce fifty remained. And of these, in the time of most distress, there was but six or seven sound persons who to their great commendation, be it spoken, spared no pains night or day, but with abundance of toil and hazard of their own health, fetched them wood, made them fires, dressed their meat, made their beds, washed their clothes clothed and unclothed them… Two of these seven were Mr. William Brewster, their reverend Elder, and Myles Standish, their captain and military commander, unto whom myself and many others were much beholden in our low and sick condition. "

Standish died in Duxbury Massachusetts on October 3, 1656. Nathaniel Morton wrote of his death:

"This year [1656] Captain Myles Standish expired his mortal life. . . .In his younger time he went over into the low countries, and was a soldier there, and came acquainted with the church at Leynden, and came over into New England, with such of them as at the first set out the plantation of New Plymouth, and bare a deep share of their first difficulties, and was always very faithful to their interest. He growing ancient, became sick of the stone, or stranguary, whereof, after his suffering of much dolorous pain, he fell asleep in the Lord, and was Honorably buried at Duxbury."
I spoke with our North Carolina attorney yesterday regarding our appearance with the mediator and also with the attorney for the Rhino Times. The Monday deposition was suppose to be in the morning but it is going to be rescheduled until Monday afternoon.

The phone was quiet yesterday morning but in the afternoon it picked up.

I have a letter that I prepared detailing the legal expenses on this issue with The Rhino Times. This will be emailed Wednesday evening so watch for it. We are also going to mail it by "snail mail" but I am not sure when it will get sent off. Most likely it will be printed while I am in North Carolina and prepared for mailing and then mailed next Tuesday or Wednesday.

We have an issue of The Crusader at the printer. I spoke with him today and he will have it printed and sent back to us probably on Friday. This will be prepared and delivery into your mail box around the 25th of October. Some people may get it a little sooner and some a little later.

Rachel Pendergraft if going to be out of town a few days before the 20th to meet with our printer who will be publishing our tabloid paper. As I have said before we have had some challenges in making this transition. It has to do with technocal stuff such transfering the date electronicly so it will be suitable for their presses. Even though it has been a little frustrating, I am confident it will be resolved. However, don’t fear she will still be in Pulaski for the White Christian Heritage Festival. Heritage Connection singers will also be there.

I will be writing on my blog early Thursday morning (We have to leave here around 3:30 am to catch our plane in Fayetteville), but I am not sure what if anything will be written while I am out of town. But check anyway, as I am will try to put something up on it while I am gone.

Please make every effort to be in Pulaski for this annual White Christian Heritage Festival. This is always a lot of fun and if you are within 500 miles than there is little excuse not being there. Remember it is time for White people to stick together. If you are not willing to do your part than you have no right to complain.

God bless you all!

On this day in 1835, the growing tensions between Mexico and Texas erupt into violence when Mexican soldiers attempt to disarm the people of Gonzales, sparking the Texan war for independence.
Texas--or Tejas as the Mexicans called it--had technically been a part of the Spanish empire since the 17th century. However, even as late as the 1820s, there were only about 3,000 Spanish-Mexican settlers in Texas, and Mexico City's hold on the territory was tenuous at best. After winning its own independence from Spain in 1821, Mexico welcomed large numbers of Anglo-American immigrants into Texas in the hopes they would become loyal Mexican citizens and keep the territory from falling into the hands of the United States. During the next decade men like Stephen Austin brought more than 25,000 people to Texas, most of them Americans. But while these emigrants legally became Mexican citizens, they continued to speak English, formed their own schools, and had closer trading ties to the United States than to Mexico.
In 1835, the president of Mexico, Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, overthrew the constitution and appointed himself dictator. Recognizing that the "American" Texans were likely to use his rise to power as an excuse to secede, Santa Anna ordered the Mexican military to begin disarming the Texans whenever possible. This proved more difficult than expected, and on October 2, 1835, Mexican soldiers attempting to take a small cannon from the village of Gonzales encountered stiff resistance from a hastily assembled militia of Texans. After a brief fight, the Mexicans retreated and the Texans kept their cannon.
The determined Texans would continue to battle Santa Ana and his army for another year and a half before winning their independence and establishing the Republic of Texas.
I was extremely busy on Friday and tried to get time to write on the blog but it never happened. On Monday the power went off at the office and I immediately thought, "Did I pay the electric bill?" Upon checking I knew I did and began checking for the problem and was able to get it fixed. It was rather simple but it startled one of the girls at the office. But now, all is well!
I worked on an email with the update on our dealings with the Rhino Times yesterday and it will be emailed to everyone on our email list tonight (that’s the plan anyway). I will also be mailing it out by postal delivery. Most likely, it won’t be mailed before I leave to North Carolina, but it may get mailed while I am gone.
I was also hoping to get an issue of The Torch in the mail before I left. But that’s not gonna happen. I sincerely ask for all your prayers on Friday (5th) and Monday (8th). That is when I will be meeting with the court ordered mediator and opposing counsel for a deposition.
Both of these meetings are rather foolish because I still don’t know who distributed the Knights Party Literature by placing them inside copies of The Rhino Times. As I have stated before, I am of the opinion that it was the people at the Rhino Times themselves. Of course the reason they would have done it would be to create a controversy with the hopes of increasing circulation.
Anyway, my local attorney and I will be flying to North Carolina on Thursday for a Friday morning appointment and then we have to stay until Tuesday after a late Monday appointment. If it was up to me I would have had them on Thursday and Friday or Monday and Tuesday instead of wasting a couple of days on the week-end. But it wasn’t up to me and we have to go with the flow.
Well, that’s all for now.
Hope to see you in Pulaski on the 20th. God bless!
