Dixie Rising - Rules for Rebels - Since the publication of their bestseller classic THE SOUTH WAS RIGHT! in 1994, the brothers James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy have been recognized spokesmen for the South. By the South they do not mean a political position or a collection of quaint attitudes. Southerners are a people—and as a people have a right to be governed by their free consent. But “at no time since Appomattox have the freedom, the heritage, and the culture of the South been under greater attack.” The Southern people are in a struggle for their existence as a people. If things continue as they have been, we will lose. In DIXIE RISING: RULES FOR REBELS the Kennedys propose nothing less than a radical change of approach to the struggle—an approach that discards the losing game of conventional politics. This book is a field manual for what they call “irregular political warfare.” DIXIE RISING provides the tools by which activists can change the current situation and move towards restoring the original Constitutional federal union of self-governing States that our forefathers established. If such a program succeeds, it will be a boon not only to Southerners but to all freedom-loving Americans.

PUNISHED WITH POVERTY: THE SUFFERING SOUTH - PROSPERITY TO POVERTY & THE CONTINUING STRUGLE - From the authors of The South was Right! comes what one historian calls one of the most important and original histories of the Southern people. Punished with Poverty tells the unvarnished story of the intentional policy of economic devastation and exploitation of the South which has affected all Southerners, both black and white, long after the close of the “Civil War” and “Reconstruction.” In fact, the sad legacy of these punitive policies continues to this very day. The over-arching theme of Southern history is not Race, as is conventionally stated, but Poverty—poverty not due to the South’s shortcomings, but imposed on them by the system under which they live. Punished with Poverty is a timely and much needed contribution to the understanding of both the South and the nature of the “Federal Empire” under which all Americans now live. From Punished with Poverty “The South’s subjugation and impoverishment have fallen hard on both black and white citizens of the South.

UNCLE SETH FOUGHT THE YANKEES - In his first foray into historical fiction, James Ronald Kennedy crafts a compelling collection of tales of Southern independence and the Federalist assault on states’ rights during the War of Northern Aggression. Kennedy uses the “everyman” character of Uncle Seth to represent the courageous and rugged individualists who combined the best of the Scotch-Irish, German, and other fiercely independent peoples who found refuge in the South because of racial or religious persecution. Uncle Seth’s stories focus on the Southern determination to be left alone by the federal government and their strong commitment to community, God, and family. The atrocities he chronicles as part of his tales to the youngsters around him provide an insight into the horrors of subjugation and anti-Christian behaviors of Northern invaders while giving a hint at what the future might hold if individuals do not fight for their rights and freedoms.

A VIEW OF THE CONSTITUTION: SECESSION AS TAUGHT AT WEST POINT (by William Rawle, edited by the Kennedy Twins) - This treatise is one of the earliest works on the subject of the United States Constitution, and one of the most important. Rawle presents the view that states have a legal right to secede from the union. Cohen observes that the popularity of this text, which was used at West Point and other schools throughout the country, "is generally considered to have influenced the leaders and supporters of the Confederacy, although in fact Rawle opposed secession."

WAS JEFFERSON DAVIS RIGHT? - Jefferson Davis, captured, imprisoned, and charged with 1) conspiracy and culpability in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln; 2) conspiracy to cause the deaths of Northern P.O.W.'s at Andersonville, Georgia, a detention camp; 3) participating in and attempting to assist in the growth of the system of slavery; and 4) treason against the United States of America, was never afforded his constitutional right to a trial.
     Now Jefferson Davis will have his day in court as the authors present the evidence to the jury-their readers. After hearing the case, readers will be able to cast their ballots on the authors' Web site to determine Davis' guilt or innocence . . . to answer the question: Was Jefferson Davis Right?

WHY NOT FREEDOM? - The authors, fervent advocates of individual freedom, point out that many current laws are oppressive. In spite of the separation of powers established by the Constitution, many of our current laws are written by bureaucrats, administered by them, and finally judged by them-yet they are in opposition to those freedoms set forth by the Constitution.
     The book details the historical development of the federal government. It describes how the American middle class has been abandoned by those who control the federal government. Career insiders, since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt, have used their influence and power to promote their love of big, tax-and-spend, centralized government and a radical social ideology, while providing high paying taxpayer-funded jobs for themselves. Further chapters outline the loss of inalienable rights in so many areas of life.
     Twenty-four examples of constitutional usurpation are thoroughly explored. Finally, techniques are suggested whereby citizens can organize to restore the freedoms originally guaranteed by the Constitution.

MYTHS OF AMERICAN SLAVERY - Armed with an open mind and a wealth of historical sources, Kennedy tackles the most common misconceptions and misrepresentations about slavery in America. Indeed, one of the first issues Kennedy addresses is the extent to which slavery flourished and persisted throughout North America, not just in the Southern states. He also reveals how New Englanders, despite their contemporary reputation as uniform abolitionists, really treated slaves, before and after emancipation. Other topics include indentured servitude; Biblical, Christian, and moral arguments regarding slavery; and how slavery related to modern race discriminating.

RECLAIMING LIBERTY - We can no longer afford to depend upon incumbent politicians, party hacks, and business-as-usual conservative leaders to defend our personal freedoms. The past one hundred years have been disastrous for constitutional rights in America. Direct and indirect taxation now consume more than 60 percent of our income--we are no longer the land of the free but have become a land of tax serfs. Government interference in our social life has grown from almost nothing in 1900 to almost overwhelming today. Over the past century America’s politicians transformed the U.S.A. from the land of individual liberty and personal accountability to a land of socialist feudalism.
     Recognizing that special interests--both liberal and conservative--participating in the spoils of our current government have failed to defend Americans’ personal freedoms, James Ronald Kennedy has issued this call to action. By following these steps, modern Americans can establish a “Liberty-Based Society” and recapture a Jacksonian democracy in which everyone enjoys the rights and prosperity envisioned by our forefathers. Mr. Kennedy presents workable solutions, supported by our original Constitution, to combat runaway taxation, federal interference, welfare abuse, and other current societal ills. He offers historical evidence to support his conviction that all Americans will benefit, grow, and prosper in an audacious new society that encourages personal accountability, self-determinism, and individual ambition.
     Any American interested in change can use this grass-roots political method to peacefully and legally overthrow the current liberal/socialist system and replace it with a liberty-based society.

LINCOLN'S MARXISTS - Was Abraham Lincoln influenced by communism when the Union condemned the rights of Southern states to express their independence? It's shocking to think so.
     But that's precisely what Walter D. Kennedy and Al Benson Jr. assert in Red Republicans and Lincoln's Marxists. The pair completely reassess this tumultuous time in American history, exposing the "politically correct" view of the War for Southern Independence as nothing less than the same observation announced by Marx himself. During the War for Southern Independence, Marx wrote about his support of the Union Army, the Republican Party, and Lincoln himself. In fact, he named the president as "the single-minded son of the working class." In addition to shedding light on this little-known part of our history, Kennedy and Benson also ask pertinent questions about the validity of today's federal government and why its role seems so much larger than the liberty found in the states it represents.
     Red Republicans and Lincoln's Marxists is a bold undertaking, but it's one that needs our immediate and absolute attention.

NULLIFYING TYRANNY - Nullifying Tyranny is a call to action that cogently asserts James Ronald Kennedy and Walter Donald Kennedy’s conservative beliefs and takes aim at the ever-expanding U.S. government, holding it accountable for the corruption of American society, which they believe is under the control of an anti-Christian secular humanist element.
     Nullification is the ability of a state to withdraw consent to be ruled by the federal government, in relation to a specific conflict, without destroying the government. This action preserves both the liberty and the legitimate union established by the Constitution. The authors immediately identify this term in the introductory chapters, opening the doors for a compelling argument that encourages citizens to defend their constitutional rights and break the bondage of secular society.
     Twenty challenging chapters scrutinize such relevant topics as self-ownership, defined as the highest form of property rights, citing the insightful philosophies of John C. Calhoun. Debate-inspiring discussions accuse the enormous government of overstepping boundaries by taking away private property from productive citizens through taxation. The authors compare this violation of property rights to a gradual form of enslavement, which will eventually lead to an impoverished society.
     Addenda include articles previously published by the authors, such as “Consent of the Governed—Key to Liberty,” which calls for moral communities to withdraw from a government that has clearly abused its entrusted power. Footnotes offer additional explanation to the arguments while graphs provide support in the form of a visual and comprehensible context.

REKILLING LINCOLN - His face is on the penny. His god-like statue reigns over Washington, DC. He saved the Union, freed the slaves, and immortalized the Battle of Gettysburg with the famous words “Four score and seven years ago.” There can be no doubt in American minds that Abraham Lincoln stands among the most honorable and heroic of our presidents—or does he?
     In a thorough and well-researched argument, Walter Donald Kennedy, the controversial co-author of the bestselling The South Was Right!, again sets the record straight about the legendary figure known as “Honest Abe.” Using historical documents, personal testimonies, and even quotes from Lincoln himself, Kennedy delivers truth after shocking truth about the little-known dark side of America’s sixteenth president. Far from the human rights champion that people suppose him to be, Abraham Lincoln actually attacked free speech, imprisoned innocent men, and murdered Native Americans. He never advocated for African American citizenship, and, in fact, the Emancipation Proclamation never freed a single slave.
      While these accusations may seem too incredible to be true, Rekilling Lincoln lays out the evidence clearly and convincingly. It leaves readers wondering if everything they thought they knew about the Civil War was just, as the saying goes, the winners writing the history books. After all, there are two sides to every story, and the story of Abraham Lincoln just got a whole lot more interesting.
