Uncle Sam protecting his property against the encroachments of his cousin John

Uncle Sam protecting his property against the encroachments of his cousin John
Complete Explanation: Northern fears of European intervention in the Civil War on behalf of the South are manifest here. Uncle Sam, in the form of a bearded Union soldier (closely resembling Abraham Lincoln), unceremoniously routs John Bull from a fenced garden where the latter has been poaching. Grabbing him by the scruff of the neck, Sam warns, "John, You lost your Non-interfering Principle. I'll lay it on your back again." The American wields a large stick "Principle of Non Enterference." John Bull has a handful of cotton plants, more of which appear at right, and wears "Armstrong's Patent" cannon on his legs. (The term refers to a type of English-made gun used by the Confederates.) The artist has hidden several Negro faces in his drawings of cotton plants here. A cock with the head of French leader Napoleon III watches from his perch on the fence at left. At right stands a large scarecrow from whose arms hang the lifeless bodies of Confederate general P. G. T. Beauregard and Confederate president Jefferson Davis. A plaque on the scarecrow reads, "All Persons Tresspassing These Premisses, will be punished according to Law." (click image for source)

Populist preacher William Jennings Bryan was thrice the Democratic nominee for President from 1896 -1908. The central theme of his anti-imperialist campaign was that America was falling into a trap of “financial servitude to British capital”.

This blog is inspired by my grandfather's books from the 19th century. Within these books, are glimpses of a "fire in the spirit" that is all but lost in America today. The mettle/determination of a different era blazes throughout. The grotesque misinformation and disinformation that deluge our sources of knowledge today (the propaganda runs dark & deep), drove me to these 19th century texts. I was searching, desperately, for some unadulterated truths. I do think I found a few precious gems. Below, a few poems and excerpts from poems. The tragedies and injustices we witness today occurred in the past. The only difference is, today, few see. In the early days of the Republic, a disciplined and educated populace actively resisted despotism. This defiance to old world tyranny is readily identifiable in these poems. Dig the title, "crowned bloodsuckers". Do we see anything, even remotely, resembling such a ferocity of spirit today?
To John G. Palfrey ( LINK ) There are who triumph in a losing cause, Who can put on defeat, as 't were a wreath Unwithering in the adverse popular breath, Safe from the blasting demagogue's applause; 'Tis they who stand for freedom and God's laws. And so stands Palfrey now, as Marvell Stood, Loyal to Truth dethroned, nor could be wooed To trust the playful tiger's velvet paws: And if the second Charles brought in Decay Of ancient virtue, if it well might wring Souls that had broadened 'neath a noble day, To see a losel, marketable king Fearfully watering with his realm's best blood Cromwell's quenched bolts, that erst had cracked and flamed, Scaring, through all their depths of courtier mud, EUROPE"S CROWNED BLOODSUCKERS,___ how more ashamed Ought we to be, who see Corruptions flood Still rise o'er last years mark, to mine away Our brazen idol's feet of treacherous clay!
SUGGESTED BY THE GRAVES OF TWO ENGLISH SOLDIERS ON CONCORD BATTLE-GROUND. These men were brave enough, and true To the hired soldier's bull-dog creed; What brought them here they never knew, They fought as suits the English breed: They came three thousand miles, and died, To keep the PAST upon it's throne; Unheard, beyond the ocean tide, Their English mother made her moan.
Stanzas on Freedom MEN! whose boast it is that ye Come of fathers brave and free, if there breath on earth a slave,Are ye truly free and brave?If ye do not feel the chain,When it works a brother's pain,Are ye not base slaves indeed,Slaves unworthy to be freed?They are slaves who fear to speak For the fallen and the weak;They are slaves who will not choose Hatred,scoffing, and abuse,Rather than in silence shrink From the truth they needs must think;They are slaves who dare not be In the right with two or three.

The link ABOVE contains one of the Reverend Martin Luther King's most profound but most overlooked speeches. This speech, in all probability, got him assassinated. In it he deviated from civil rights to anti-war. This anti-war stanch upset the Military Industrial Complex.

(Of particular interest to me and relevance to this blog, is the inclusion of an excerpt from a James Russell Lowell poem that MLK so generously and warmly ended his powerful discourse with)

The Angry Arab News Service/وكالة أنباء العربي الغاضب: Tel Aviv: or over the ruins of the prosperous city...:

Tel Aviv: or over the ruins of the prosperous city of Jaffa

Rotbard chips away at the façade of his birthplace. He describes how
Tel Aviv supplanted Jaffa’s Arab-owned orange groves, and goes on to
explain how, in the violent birth of Israel in 1947-48, Jewish
paramilitary fighters overpowered and subsequently largely levelled the
city from which it had sprung. His tale of Tel Aviv’s growth from a
Jaffa suburb founded in 1909 to a metropolis whose population grew
20-fold in the 1920s is gripping.

inhabitants, he writes, were for the most part adolescent Jewish men
who were no less ideological than today’s settlers. Even their methods
were often the same. Their fortified outposts interrupted Arab
contiguity. Their first bypass, Allenby Street, today a spine through
the city, ran around Jaffa’s perimeter. It gave Tel Aviv access to the
sea, but also reduced Jaffa to an enclave that was in effect cut off
from its Palestinian hinterland.
November 1947 the UN published its plan for dividing Palestine into an
Arab and a Jewish state. Jaffa was made a Palestinian island within
Jewish boundaries. In the fighting that followed, paramilitaries
commanded by Menachem Begin, a Tel Avivan who later became Israel’s
prime minister, rolled barrel bombs down the alleyways into Jaffa’s
cafés and fired mortars into residential districts. By the time Israel
declared independence on May 14th 1948, prompting Arab armies to move
in, Jews had chased Jaffa’s Arabs out of the city, leaving less than a
20th of the population behind. Many were forced to escape by sea. For
the first time in 5,000 years, Mr Rotbard goes on, Jaffa “ceased to
exist as an urban and cultural entity”. Much of the Arab medina was
bulldozed and grassed over. Some monuments, including mosques and
Crusader-era buildings, were preserved, but walking through Jaffa today
you would never know that it had once been Palestine’s Arab economic and
cultural centre.
officials treated Jaffa as a repository for institutions like the
police headquarters, jails and rubbish dumps, as well as unpopular
people such as migrant workers. Later, whole districts were paved and
turned into car parks. “Cities like Hiroshima, Dresden and Berlin all
suffered exorbitant damage during World War II but each emerged from the
dust-clouds of conflict intact, even vibrant urban entities,” the
author writes, whereas Jaffa, he claims, was eradicated like Troy."
