Amazon.com: Customer reviews: Who We Are

I am sure that the overwhelming majority of the relatively few people who will take up and read this book will be those already in agreement with its premises and conclusions. Thus, its overall effect as a work of persuasion will be, unfortunately, minimal.

It is a very good introductory primer on race issues and race history from a ‘racial nationalist’ perspective. Each chapter could of course be expanded into a small library of works of its own, and could be so consulted if this work had both source notes and a bibliography, but it has neither. I see this as a major flaw as the reader really has nowhere to go after reading this, and I include those already broadly acquainted with its issues and conclusions and who wish to further their own education here. And really a work of this importance should have had a more worthy, quality edition in the form of a sturdy and nicely-produced jacketed hardcover instead of this flimsy paperback.

In this book, Dr. Pierce sums up well the problems facing our people and how they came about, although the text does have a number of factual and historical errors, however none of any major importance. He is short on solutions, as while his prognosis is right, his corrective advice is broad and vague, this in itself very typical of ‘racial nationalist’ tracts, of the ‘we must awake and do something’ variety but without much in the way of specifics.

William Pierce was a great man of achievement and his published works such as this will represent the immortal basis of his ‘fame of deeds’. His political organization has already collapsed since his passing. His earlier work ‘Turner Diaries’ is already famous and fairly widely-read, although his later ‘Hunter’ – a better novel than ‘Turner’ – is not as well known.

I recommend this book to everyone, including the already-converted, as both that important primer but also as a serious reminder to all as to what is at stake.

William Luther Pierce – Religion | Technology Trends

Religion

Although raised a Presbyterian, Pierce became an Atheist as a teenager In the 1970s however, Pierce created the religion Cosmotheism, in what may have been a last-ditch effort to avoid paying taxes, as he had earlier unsuccessfully tried to acquire tax-exempt status for the National Alliance by claiming that the organization was educational. The Southern Poverty Law Center refers to it as a “bogus religion”.

In effect, Cosmotheism it is a form of panentheism, asserting that “all is within God and God is within all.” It considers the nature of reality and of existence to be mutable and destined to co-evolve towards a complete “universal consciousness,” or godhood. Cosmos means an orderly and harmonious universe and thus the divine is tantamount to reality and consciousness, an inseparable part of an orderly, harmonious, and whole universal system.

In his speech “Our Cause”, Pierce said:

All we require is that you share with us a commitment to the simple, but great, truth which I have explained to you here, that you understand that you are a part of the whole, which is the creator, that you understand that your purpose, the purpose of mankind and the purpose of every other part of creation, is the creator’s purpose, that this purpose is the never-ending ascent of the path of creation, the path of life symbolized by our life rune, that you understand that this path leads ever upward toward the creator’s self-realization, and that the destiny of those who follow this path is godhood.

Pierce described his form of panentheism as being based on “he idea of an evolutionary universe … with an evolution toward ever higher and higher states of self-consciousness,” and his political ideas were centered on racial purity and eugenics as the means of advancing the white race first towards a super race and then towards personal godhood. In his view, the white race represented the pinnacle of human evolution thus far and therefore it should be kept genetically separate from all other races.

Pierce believed in a hierarchical society governed by what he saw as the essential principles of nature, the survival of the fittest. In his view, White people should remain separated from other races and establish a ruled by the most qualified. He thought that extensive programs of “racial cleansing” (mass expulsion) and of eugenics, both in Europe and in North America, would be necessary to achieve this socio-political program.

A reasonably objective biography of Dr. Pierce The Legacy …

From Metapedia: http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/William_Luther_Pierce

Dr William Luther Pierce III (September 11, 1933 July 23, 2002) was the leader of the White survival organization the National Alliance and a principal ideologue of the white nationalist movement. First educated as a physicist, he later worked with George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party. Pierce became well known as the author of a novel, The Turner Diaries (1978), written under the pseudonym Andrew Macdonald. He founded the religion of Cosmotheism, an admixture of panentheism, and promoted White nationalism, and White survival world-views.

William Pierce was born on September 11, 1933 in Atlanta, Georgia. His father William L. Pierce II was born in Christiansburg, Virginia in 1892. His mother Marguerite Farrell was born in Richland, Georgia in 1910. Her family were part of the aristocracy of the Old South, descendants of Thomas Hill Watts, the Governor of Alabama and Attorney General of the Confederate States of America. Pierces father once served as a government representative on ocean-going cargo ships and sent reports back to Washington, D.C. Later his father owned an insurance agency and died in a car accident in 1942. After his fathers death the family, which included a younger brother, moved to Montgomery, Alabama and then to Dallas, Texas. He did well in school, skipping one grade. His last two years in high school were spent in a military academy. As a teenager his hobbies and interests were model rockets, chemistry, radios, electronics and reading science fiction. He had hopes of one day becoming an astronaut. After finishing military school in 1951, Pierce worked briefly in an oil field as a roustabout. He injured himself when a four inch pipe fell on his hand and spent the rest of that summer working as a shoe salesman. Pierce earned a scholarship to attend Rice University in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Rice University in 1955 with a bachelors degree in physics. He worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory before attending graduate school, first at Caltech and then the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he earned his Ph.D. in 1962. He taught physics as an assistant professor at Oregon State University from 1962 to 1965. Pierce married five times. The first was with Patricia Jones whom he met while at California Institute of Technology. They were married in 1957 and had twins sons, Kelvin and Erik, born in 1962. The marriage ended in divorce in 1982. Pierce remarried that same year to Elizabeth Prostel, whom he met in the National Alliance office in Arlington, Virginia. The marriage ended in 1985 when Pierce moved his headquarters to West Virginia. Pierce married Hungarian Olga Skerlecz in 1986, a marriage which lasted until 1990. Olga left Pierce and West Virginia for greener pastures in California. Pierce then wed a woman named Zsuzsanna, who is also Hungarian, in early 1991. They met through an ad that Pierce placed in an Hungarian womens magazine. Zsuzsanna left him for Florida in mid-1996. His last marriage, which lasted until his death, was with another Eastern European woman whom he married in 1997.

It was during this time at Oregon State when Pierce began to notice two social movements on campus that disturbed him: the civil rights and the Vietnam anti-war movements. Pierce saw the Jewish-fueled civil rights movement as a threat to the white race. Also, he believed the anti-war movement to be communist-inspired and led primarily by Jews. He had a brief membership in the John Birch Society in 1962 but eventually resigned because they werent critical of Jews. In 1966 he became an associate of George Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party. During this time he was the editor of the partys ideological journal, National Socialist World. When Rockwell was assassinated in 1967, Pierce continued to work with the group (this time officially becoming a member) which by then was renamed the National Socialist White Peoples Party (NSWPP). In 1968 Pierce received national attention by becoming a Virginia arms dealer creating NS Arms. The venture sold Negro control equipment consisting of riot guns, handguns, semi-automatic rifles and chemical mace. Pierce advertised and used NSWPP literature with the warning Beat the Ban. Stock you home NOWwith weapons for the coming race war![1] Pierce left the NSWPP in July 1970[2] and took control of the National Youth Alliance in December 1970 which later became the National Alliance, incorporated in Virginia on February 26, 1974.[3]

In 1973 Pierce testified against Secretary of State nominee Henry Kissinger before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee stating Kissinger as a Jew would favor the interests of Israel over America.[4] The National Alliance adopted the Life Rune as its symbol and this organization was to be a political vanguard designed ultimately to bring about a white racial redemption. His Cosmotheist Community Church, which was to be the next step of this plan, was set up in the mid-1970s, alongside Pierces political projects; the National Alliance, National Vanguard Books, and the weekly broadcast American Dissident Voices. In 1978 Pierce applied for and was denied tax exemption claiming it from the Internal Revenue Service; he appealed and an appellate court upheld the I.R.S. decision. In 1985, Pierce moved his operations from Arlington, Virginia, to a rural area near Mill Point, West Virginia. When Pierce bought the West Virginia land he incorporated it as the Cosmotheist Community Church and applied for Federal, state and local tax exemptions. However in 1986, the Church lost its state tax exemption for all but 60 (out of nearly 400 acres) acres and which had to exclusively used for religious purposes. The other 340 acres (1.6 km) were for both the National Alliance headquarters and the National Vanguard Books business and warehouse, and were not ruled tax exempt.

Pierce came to international public attention following the Oklahoma City bombing. The perpetrator, Timothy McVeigh, was alleged to have been influenced by The Turner Diaries (1978), the novel written by Pierce under the pseudonym Andrew Macdonald. The book is a graphically violent depiction of a future race war in the United States, including a detailed description of the mass hangings of many race traitors and of any white women who ever had had sex with any non-Whites and in the public streets of Los Angeles, followed by the systematic ethnic cleansing of the entire city. The book, told through the perspective of Earl Turner an active member of the white revolutionary underground The Organization-culminates with Turners nuclear suicide mission, of which destroyed the military command at The Pentagon, and thus preventing any invasion of the Organization-controlled California. The part most relevant to the McVeigh case is in an earlier chapter, when the books main character is put in charge of bombing the FBI headquarters in Washington DC. Some have drawn parallels from the book to the actual bombing strikingly similar to the Oklahoma City bombing that destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and killed 168 people in 1995. Although The Turner Diaries was originally only available by mail order and at events such as gun shows, it is still believed to have sold well over three quarters of a million copies. The Turner Diaries also inspired a group of white revolutionary nationalists in the early 1980s calling themselves the Silent Brotherhood or sometimes simply The Order. The Order was connected to numerous crimes, including counterfeiting and bank robbery, and supposedly gave money to the National Alliance. The Orders leader, Robert Jay Mathews, died in a stand off with police and federal agents on Whidbey Island in Washington when the FBI finally firebombed his hideout.

Pierce spent his final years living in West Virginia, where he hosted a weekly radio show, American Dissident Voices and oversaw his publishing, National Vanguard magazine, Free Speech and Resistance as well as books published by his book publishing firm National Vanguard Books, Inc and his record company, Resistance Records. Before Pierce died he allowed professor Robert S. Griffin to live with him for a month with the result being Pierces biography: The Fame of a Dead Mans Deeds (2001) [1]. William Pierce died of cancer on July 23, 2002 at his home in West Virginia.

In September 1983, in closing remarks at the National Alliance national convention, Dr. Pierce speaks on his mortality and the ultimate victory. On April 28, 2002 he gave his last public remarks before a National Alliance Unit meeting in Ohio.

King County Council names county after Rev. Dr. Martin …

On February 24, 1986, the King County Council passes Motion 6461 renaming King County to commemorate the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968), the civil rights leader, rather than William Rufus de Vane King (1786-1853), the vice-president-elect for whom the county was named in 1852. King County was originally named by the Oregon Territory Legislature in 1852. Washington Territory was created in 1853.

King County’s First Eponym

William Rufus de Vane King was a plantation owner in Alabama who was elected to the U.S. Senate and served there for 34 years. In 1844 he became ambassador to France, and his diplomacy enabled the United States to annex Texas. He was a key advocate of the Compromise of 1850, a series of laws that forged a compromise between slave states and free states concerning the extension of slavery into new states and territories. The compromise kept the Union together for a few more years before the Civil War, but included the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, a harsh law requiring the return of alleged fugitive slaves from the North back into bondage in the South.

In 1852, King was elected vice president of the United States on the Democratic ticket with Franklin Pierce. He took the oath of office in Cuba, where he had gonebecause of ill health,on March 24, 1853 — 20 days after Inauguration Day. Congress granted him the privilege of taking the oath on foreign soil because of his long service to the government. He returned to his plantation, near Selma, shortly after that. He died there, of tuberculosis, on April 18, 1853, without ever actually carrying out the duties of vice president.

King County’s Present Eponym

The 1986 motion to rename King County after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. reads:

INTRODUCED BY: RON SIMS, BRUCE LAINGPROPOSED NO.: 86-66 MOTION NO. 6461

A MOTION setting forth the historical basis for “renaming” King County after the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., instead of William Rufus DeVane King for whom King County is currently named.

WHEREAS, William Rufus DeVane King earned income and maintained his lifestyle by oppressing and exploiting other human beings, and

WHEREAS, the citizens of King County cherish and uphold the constitutional tenent of the “unmitigated pursuit” of life, liberty, and happiness for which many citizens of this county have given their lives as a supreme sacrifice to defend these foundations of freedom, and

WHEREAS, the citizens of King County through their various faiths uphold the principle that all mankind was created equal, and

WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed that liberty, justice and freedom were the “inalienable rights” of all men, women and children, and

WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a spiritual man who believed all people were created equal in the sight of God, and

WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed in the dignity and self-worth of every individual, and subsequently, gave his life defending his beliefs, and

WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a recipient of the Nobel Prize became a national hero whose birthday has been declared a national holiday by his nation’s government to be a day of peace, love and understanding, and

WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through his persistent and unfailing efforts prompted passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, both of which have benefited all citizens of this nation, and

WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired people and nations world-wide to strive in a non-violent manner for the human rights, civil liberties, and economic guarantees rightfully due people of all races;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT MOVED by the Council of King County: The King County Council, hereby, sets forth the historical basis for the “renaming” of King County in honor of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man whose contributions are well-documented and celebrated by millions throughout this nation and the world, and embody the attributes for which the citizens of King County can be proud, and claim as their own.

BE IT FURTHER MOVED,

King County shall be named after the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

PASSED this 24th day of February, 1986.

KING COUNTY COUNCILKING COUNTY, WASHINGTON (signed by) Audrey GrugerChair ATTEST: (signed by) Dorothy M. OwensClerk of the Council

A bronze memorial plaque commemorating the name change was placed on the first floor elevator lobby of the King County Courthouse at 3rd Avenue and James Street in Seattle.

Because the state charters counties, the name change could not become official until signed into state law. For eight consecutive years, State Senator Adam Kline sponsored legislation to authorize the name change. State Representative Eric Pettigrew sponsored the bill in the State House of Representatives. On April 19, 2005, Governor Christine Gregoire (b. 1947) signed into law Senate Bill 5332 and King County was officially renamed in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

Franklin Pierce | Biography & Facts | Britannica.com

Franklin Pierce, byname Young Hickory, (born November 23, 1804, Hillsboro, New Hampshire, U.S.died October 8, 1869, Concord, New Hampshire), 14th president of the United States (185357). He failed to deal effectively with the corroding sectional controversy over slavery in the decade preceding the American Civil War (186165). (For a discussion of the history and nature of the presidency, see presidency of the United States of America.)

The son of a governor of New Hampshire, Benjamin Pierce, and the former Anna Kendrick, Franklin Pierce attended Bowdoin College in Maine, studied law in Northampton, Massachusetts, and was admitted to the bar in 1827. He married Jane Means Appleton, whose father was president of Bowdoin, in 1834.

Pierce entered political life in New Hampshire as a Democrat, serving in the state legislature (182933), the U.S. House of Representatives (183337), and the Senate (183742). Handsome, affable, charming, and possessed of a certain superficial brilliance, Pierce made many friends in Congress, but his career there was otherwise undistinguished. He was a devoted supporter of Pres. Andrew Jackson but was continually overshadowed by older and more prominent men on the national scene. Resigning from the Senate for personal reasons, he returned to Concord, where he resumed his law practice and also served as federal district attorney.

Except for a brief stint as an officer in the Mexican-American War (184648), Pierce remained out of the public eye until the nominating convention of the Democratic Party in 1852. After a deadlock developed among supporters of the leading presidential contendersLewis Cass, Stephen A. Douglas, and James Buchanana coalition of New England and Southern delegates proposed Young Hickory (a reference to Andrew Jackson, who had been known as Old Hickory), and Pierce was nominated on the 49th ballot. The ensuing presidential campaign was dominated by the controversy over slavery and the finality of the Compromise of 1850. Although both the Democrats and the Whigs declared themselves in favour of the compromise, the Democrats were more thoroughly united in their support. As a result, Pierce, who was almost unknown nationally, unexpectedly won the November election, defeating the Whig candidate Winfield Scott by 254 votes to 42 in the electoral college. Pierces triumph was quickly marred by tragedy, however, when, a few weeks before his inauguration, he and his wife witnessed the death of their only surviving child, 11-year-old Bennie, in a railroad accident. Jane Pierce, who had always opposed her husbands candidacy, never fully recovered from the shock.

At the time of his election, Pierce, age 47, was the youngest man to have been elected to the presidency. Representing the Eastern element of the Democratic Party, which was inclined for the sake of harmony and business prosperity to oppose antislavery agitation and generally to placate Southern opinion, Pierce tried to promote sectional unity by filling his cabinet with extremists from both sides of the slavery debate. He also attempted to sidestep the fierce sectional antagonisms of the domestic scene by ambitiously and aggressively promoting the extension of U.S. territorial and commercial interests abroad. In an effort to buy the island of Cuba from Spain, he ordered the U.S. minister to Spain, Pierre Soul, to try to secure the influence of European financiers on the Spanish government. The resulting diplomatic statement, the Ostend Manifesto (October 1854), was interpreted by the American public as a call to wrest Cuba from Spain by force if necessary. The ensuing controversy forced the administration to disclaim responsibility for the document and to recall Soul. In 1855 an American adventurer, William Walker, conducted a notorious expedition into Central America with the hope of establishing a proslavery government under the control of the United States. In Nicaragua he established himself as military dictactor and then as president, and his dubious regime was recognized by the Pierce administration. A more lasting diplomatic achievement came from the expedition that Pres. Millard Fillmore had sent to Japan in 1853 under Commodore Matthew C. Perry. In 1854 Pierce received Perrys report that his expedition had been successful and that U.S. ships would have limited access to Japanese ports. The Pierce administration also reorganized the diplomatic and consular service and created the United States Court of Claims.

Among Pierces domestic policies were preparations for a transcontinental railroad and the opening of the Northwest for settlement. In 1853, in order to create a southerly route to California, the U.S. minister to Mexico, James Gadsden, negotiated the purchase of almost 30,000 square miles of Mexican territory (the Gadsden Purchase), for $10 million. Mainly to stimulate migration to the Northwest and to facilitate the construction of a central route to the Pacific, Pierce signed the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854. This measure, which opened two new territories for settlement, included repeal of the Missouri Compromise of 1820 (by which slavery in the territories was prohibited north of latitude 36 30) and provided that the status of the territories as free or slave would be decided by popular sovereignty. The indignation aroused by the act and the resulting period of violent conflict in the Kansas Territory were the main causes of the rise of the Republican Party in the mid-1850s. Owing to his ineptness in handling the situation in Kansas, Pierce was denied renomination by the Democrats, and he remains the only president to be so repudiated by his party. After an extended tour of Europe he retired to Concord. Always a heavy drinker, Pierce descended further into apparent alcoholism, and he died in obscurity.

The table provides a list of cabinet members in the administration of President Franklin Pierce.

And really a work of this importance should have had a more worthy, quality edition in the form of a sturdy and nicely-produced jacketed hardcover instead of this flimsy paperback. In this book, Dr. Pierce sums up well the problems facing our people and how they came about, although the text does have a number of factual and historical errors, however none of any major importance. He is short on solutions, as while his prognosis is right, his corrective advice is broad and vague, this in itself very typical of ‘racial nationalist’ tracts, of the ‘we must awake and do something’ variety but without much in the way of specifics. William Pierce was a great man of achievement and his published works such as this will represent the immortal basis of his ‘fame of deeds’. His political organization has already collapsed since his passing. His earlier work ‘Turner Diaries’ is already famous and fairly widely-read, although his later ‘Hunter’ – a better novel than ‘Turner’ – is not as well known. I recommend this book to everyone, including the already-converted, as both that important primer but also as a serious reminder to all as to what is at stake.

William Luther Pierce – Religion | Technology Trends

Religion Although raised a Presbyterian, Pierce became an Atheist as a teenager In the 1970s however, Pierce created the religion Cosmotheism, in what may have been a last-ditch effort to avoid paying taxes, as he had earlier unsuccessfully tried to acquire tax-exempt status for the National Alliance by claiming that the organization was educational. The Southern Poverty Law Center refers to it as a “bogus religion”. In effect, Cosmotheism it is a form of panentheism, asserting that “all is within God and God is within all.” It considers the nature of reality and of existence to be mutable and destined to co-evolve towards a complete “universal consciousness,” or godhood. Cosmos means an orderly and harmonious universe and thus the divine is tantamount to reality and consciousness, an inseparable part of an orderly, harmonious, and whole universal system. In his speech “Our Cause”, Pierce said: All we require is that you share with us a commitment to the simple, but great, truth which I have explained to you here, that you understand that you are a part of the whole, which is the creator, that you understand that your purpose, the purpose of mankind and the purpose of every other part of creation, is the creator’s purpose, that this purpose is the never-ending ascent of the path of creation, the path of life symbolized by our life rune, that you understand that this path leads ever upward toward the creator’s self-realization, and that the destiny of those who follow this path is godhood. Pierce described his form of panentheism as being based on “he idea of an evolutionary universe … with an evolution toward ever higher and higher states of self-consciousness,” and his political ideas were centered on racial purity and eugenics as the means of advancing the white race first towards a super race and then towards personal godhood. In his view, the white race represented the pinnacle of human evolution thus far and therefore it should be kept genetically separate from all other races. Pierce believed in a hierarchical society governed by what he saw as the essential principles of nature, the survival of the fittest. In his view, White people should remain separated from other races and establish a ruled by the most qualified. He thought that extensive programs of “racial cleansing” (mass expulsion) and of eugenics, both in Europe and in North America, would be necessary to achieve this socio-political program.

A reasonably objective biography of Dr. Pierce The Legacy …

From Metapedia: http://en.metapedia.org/wiki/William_Luther_Pierce Dr William Luther Pierce III (September 11, 1933 July 23, 2002) was the leader of the White survival organization the National Alliance and a principal ideologue of the white nationalist movement. First educated as a physicist, he later worked with George Lincoln Rockwell, the founder of the American Nazi Party. Pierce became well known as the author of a novel, The Turner Diaries (1978), written under the pseudonym Andrew Macdonald. He founded the religion of Cosmotheism, an admixture of panentheism, and promoted White nationalism, and White survival world-views. William Pierce was born on September 11, 1933 in Atlanta, Georgia. His father William L. Pierce II was born in Christiansburg, Virginia in 1892. His mother Marguerite Farrell was born in Richland, Georgia in 1910. Her family were part of the aristocracy of the Old South, descendants of Thomas Hill Watts, the Governor of Alabama and Attorney General of the Confederate States of America. Pierces father once served as a government representative on ocean-going cargo ships and sent reports back to Washington, D.C. Later his father owned an insurance agency and died in a car accident in 1942. After his fathers death the family, which included a younger brother, moved to Montgomery, Alabama and then to Dallas, Texas. He did well in school, skipping one grade. His last two years in high school were spent in a military academy. As a teenager his hobbies and interests were model rockets, chemistry, radios, electronics and reading science fiction. He had hopes of one day becoming an astronaut. After finishing military school in 1951, Pierce worked briefly in an oil field as a roustabout. He injured himself when a four inch pipe fell on his hand and spent the rest of that summer working as a shoe salesman. Pierce earned a scholarship to attend Rice University in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Rice University in 1955 with a bachelors degree in physics. He worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory before attending graduate school, first at Caltech and then the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he earned his Ph.D. in 1962. He taught physics as an assistant professor at Oregon State University from 1962 to 1965. Pierce married five times. The first was with Patricia Jones whom he met while at California Institute of Technology. They were married in 1957 and had twins sons, Kelvin and Erik, born in 1962. The marriage ended in divorce in 1982. Pierce remarried that same year to Elizabeth Prostel, whom he met in the National Alliance office in Arlington, Virginia. The marriage ended in 1985 when Pierce moved his headquarters to West Virginia. Pierce married Hungarian Olga Skerlecz in 1986, a marriage which lasted until 1990. Olga left Pierce and West Virginia for greener pastures in California. Pierce then wed a woman named Zsuzsanna, who is also Hungarian, in early 1991. They met through an ad that Pierce placed in an Hungarian womens magazine. Zsuzsanna left him for Florida in mid-1996. His last marriage, which lasted until his death, was with another Eastern European woman whom he married in 1997. It was during this time at Oregon State when Pierce began to notice two social movements on campus that disturbed him: the civil rights and the Vietnam anti-war movements. Pierce saw the Jewish-fueled civil rights movement as a threat to the white race. Also, he believed the anti-war movement to be communist-inspired and led primarily by Jews. He had a brief membership in the John Birch Society in 1962 but eventually resigned because they werent critical of Jews. In 1966 he became an associate of George Lincoln Rockwell, leader of the American Nazi Party. During this time he was the editor of the partys ideological journal, National Socialist World. When Rockwell was assassinated in 1967, Pierce continued to work with the group (this time officially becoming a member) which by then was renamed the National Socialist White Peoples Party (NSWPP). In 1968 Pierce received national attention by becoming a Virginia arms dealer creating NS Arms. The venture sold Negro control equipment consisting of riot guns, handguns, semi-automatic rifles and chemical mace. Pierce advertised and used NSWPP literature with the warning Beat the Ban. Stock you home NOWwith weapons for the coming race war![1] Pierce left the NSWPP in July 1970[2] and took control of the National Youth Alliance in December 1970 which later became the National Alliance, incorporated in Virginia on February 26, 1974.[3] In 1973 Pierce testified against Secretary of State nominee Henry Kissinger before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee stating Kissinger as a Jew would favor the interests of Israel over America.[4] The National Alliance adopted the Life Rune as its symbol and this organization was to be a political vanguard designed ultimately to bring about a white racial redemption. His Cosmotheist Community Church, which was to be the next step of this plan, was set up in the mid-1970s, alongside Pierces political projects; the National Alliance, National Vanguard Books, and the weekly broadcast American Dissident Voices. In 1978 Pierce applied for and was denied tax exemption claiming it from the Internal Revenue Service; he appealed and an appellate court upheld the I.R.S. decision. In 1985, Pierce moved his operations from Arlington, Virginia, to a rural area near Mill Point, West Virginia. When Pierce bought the West Virginia land he incorporated it as the Cosmotheist Community Church and applied for Federal, state and local tax exemptions. However in 1986, the Church lost its state tax exemption for all but 60 (out of nearly 400 acres) acres and which had to exclusively used for religious purposes. The other 340 acres (1.6 km) were for both the National Alliance headquarters and the National Vanguard Books business and warehouse, and were not ruled tax exempt. Pierce came to international public attention following the Oklahoma City bombing. The perpetrator, Timothy McVeigh, was alleged to have been influenced by The Turner Diaries (1978), the novel written by Pierce under the pseudonym Andrew Macdonald. The book is a graphically violent depiction of a future race war in the United States, including a detailed description of the mass hangings of many race traitors and of any white women who ever had had sex with any non-Whites and in the public streets of Los Angeles, followed by the systematic ethnic cleansing of the entire city. The book, told through the perspective of Earl Turner an active member of the white revolutionary underground The Organization-culminates with Turners nuclear suicide mission, of which destroyed the military command at The Pentagon, and thus preventing any invasion of the Organization-controlled California. The part most relevant to the McVeigh case is in an earlier chapter, when the books main character is put in charge of bombing the FBI headquarters in Washington DC. Some have drawn parallels from the book to the actual bombing strikingly similar to the Oklahoma City bombing that destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building and killed 168 people in 1995. Although The Turner Diaries was originally only available by mail order and at events such as gun shows, it is still believed to have sold well over three quarters of a million copies. The Turner Diaries also inspired a group of white revolutionary nationalists in the early 1980s calling themselves the Silent Brotherhood or sometimes simply The Order. The Order was connected to numerous crimes, including counterfeiting and bank robbery, and supposedly gave money to the National Alliance. The Orders leader, Robert Jay Mathews, died in a stand off with police and federal agents on Whidbey Island in Washington when the FBI finally firebombed his hideout. Pierce spent his final years living in West Virginia, where he hosted a weekly radio show, American Dissident Voices and oversaw his publishing, National Vanguard magazine, Free Speech and Resistance as well as books published by his book publishing firm National Vanguard Books, Inc and his record company, Resistance Records. Before Pierce died he allowed professor Robert S. Griffin to live with him for a month with the result being Pierces biography: The Fame of a Dead Mans Deeds (2001) [1]. William Pierce died of cancer on July 23, 2002 at his home in West Virginia. In September 1983, in closing remarks at the National Alliance national convention, Dr. Pierce speaks on his mortality and the ultimate victory. On April 28, 2002 he gave his last public remarks before a National Alliance Unit meeting in Ohio.

King County Council names county after Rev. Dr. Martin …

On February 24, 1986, the King County Council passes Motion 6461 renaming King County to commemorate the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968), the civil rights leader, rather than William Rufus de Vane King (1786-1853), the vice-president-elect for whom the county was named in 1852. King County was originally named by the Oregon Territory Legislature in 1852. Washington Territory was created in 1853. King County’s First Eponym William Rufus de Vane King was a plantation owner in Alabama who was elected to the U.S. Senate and served there for 34 years. In 1844 he became ambassador to France, and his diplomacy enabled the United States to annex Texas. He was a key advocate of the Compromise of 1850, a series of laws that forged a compromise between slave states and free states concerning the extension of slavery into new states and territories. The compromise kept the Union together for a few more years before the Civil War, but included the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, a harsh law requiring the return of alleged fugitive slaves from the North back into bondage in the South. In 1852, King was elected vice president of the United States on the Democratic ticket with Franklin Pierce. He took the oath of office in Cuba, where he had gonebecause of ill health,on March 24, 1853 — 20 days after Inauguration Day. Congress granted him the privilege of taking the oath on foreign soil because of his long service to the government. He returned to his plantation, near Selma, shortly after that. He died there, of tuberculosis, on April 18, 1853, without ever actually carrying out the duties of vice president. King County’s Present Eponym The 1986 motion to rename King County after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. reads: INTRODUCED BY: RON SIMS, BRUCE LAINGPROPOSED NO.: 86-66 MOTION NO. 6461 A MOTION setting forth the historical basis for “renaming” King County after the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., instead of William Rufus DeVane King for whom King County is currently named. WHEREAS, the County of King in the State of Washington was named after William Rufus Devane King by the Oregon Territorial legislature in 1852, and WHEREAS, William Rufus DeVane King was a slaveowner and a “gentle slave monger” according to John Quincy Adams, and WHEREAS, the citizens of King County believe that the ownership of another human being is an injustice against humanity, and WHEREAS, William Rufus DeVane King earned income and maintained his lifestyle by oppressing and exploiting other human beings, and WHEREAS, the citizens of King County cherish and uphold the constitutional tenent of the “unmitigated pursuit” of life, liberty, and happiness for which many citizens of this county have given their lives as a supreme sacrifice to defend these foundations of freedom, and WHEREAS, the citizens of King County through their various faiths uphold the principle that all mankind was created equal, and WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed that liberty, justice and freedom were the “inalienable rights” of all men, women and children, and WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a spiritual man who believed all people were created equal in the sight of God, and WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. believed in the dignity and self-worth of every individual, and subsequently, gave his life defending his beliefs, and WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. a recipient of the Nobel Prize became a national hero whose birthday has been declared a national holiday by his nation’s government to be a day of peace, love and understanding, and WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through his persistent and unfailing efforts prompted passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, both of which have benefited all citizens of this nation, and WHEREAS, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. inspired people and nations world-wide to strive in a non-violent manner for the human rights, civil liberties, and economic guarantees rightfully due people of all races; NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT MOVED by the Council of King County: The King County Council, hereby, sets forth the historical basis for the “renaming” of King County in honor of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a man whose contributions are well-documented and celebrated by millions throughout this nation and the world, and embody the attributes for which the citizens of King County can be proud, and claim as their own. BE IT FURTHER MOVED, King County shall be named after the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. PASSED this 24th day of February, 1986. KING COUNTY COUNCILKING COUNTY, WASHINGTON (signed by) Audrey GrugerChair ATTEST: (signed by) Dorothy M. OwensClerk of the Council A bronze memorial plaque commemorating the name change was placed on the first floor elevator lobby of the King County Courthouse at 3rd Avenue and James Street in Seattle. Because the state charters counties, the name change could not become official until signed into state law. For eight consecutive years, State Senator Adam Kline sponsored legislation to authorize the name change. State Representative Eric Pettigrew sponsored the bill in the State House of Representatives. On April 19, 2005, Governor Christine Gregoire (b. 1947) signed into law Senate Bill 5332 and King County was officially renamed in honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

Franklin Pierce | Biography & Facts | Britannica.com

Franklin Pierce, byname Young Hickory, (born November 23, 1804, Hillsboro, New Hampshire, U.S.died October 8, 1869, Concord, New Hampshire), 14th president of the United States (185357). He failed to deal effectively with the corroding sectional controversy over slavery in the decade preceding the American Civil War (186165). (For a discussion of the history and nature of the presidency, see presidency of the United States of America.) The son of a governor of New Hampshire, Benjamin Pierce, and the former Anna Kendrick, Franklin Pierce attended Bowdoin College in Maine, studied law in Northampton, Massachusetts, and was admitted to the bar in 1827. He married Jane Means Appleton, whose father was president of Bowdoin, in 1834. Pierce entered political life in New Hampshire as a Democrat, serving in the state legislature (182933), the U.S. House of Representatives (183337), and the Senate (183742). Handsome, affable, charming, and possessed of a certain superficial brilliance, Pierce made many friends in Congress, but his career there was otherwise undistinguished. He was a devoted supporter of Pres. Andrew Jackson but was continually overshadowed by older and more prominent men on the national scene. Resigning from the Senate for personal reasons, he returned to Concord, where he resumed his law practice and also served as federal district attorney. Except for a brief stint as an officer in the Mexican-American War (184648), Pierce remained out of the public eye until the nominating convention of the Democratic Party in 1852. After a deadlock developed among supporters of the leading presidential contendersLewis Cass, Stephen A. Douglas, and James Buchanana coalition of New England and Southern delegates proposed Young Hickory (a reference to Andrew Jackson, who had been known as Old Hickory), and Pierce was nominated on the 49th ballot. The ensuing presidential campaign was dominated by the controversy over slavery and the finality of the Compromise of 1850. Although both the Democrats and the Whigs declared themselves in favour of the compromise, the Democrats were more thoroughly united in their support. As a result, Pierce, who was almost unknown nationally, unexpectedly won the November election, defeating the Whig candidate Winfield Scott by 254 votes to 42 in the electoral college. Pierces triumph was quickly marred by tragedy, however, when, a few weeks before his inauguration, he and his wife witnessed the death of their only surviving child, 11-year-old Bennie, in a railroad accident. Jane Pierce, who had always opposed her husbands candidacy, never fully recovered from the shock. At the time of his election, Pierce, age 47, was the youngest man to have been elected to the presidency. Representing the Eastern element of the Democratic Party, which was inclined for the sake of harmony and business prosperity to oppose antislavery agitation and generally to placate Southern opinion, Pierce tried to promote sectional unity by filling his cabinet with extremists from both sides of the slavery debate. He also attempted to sidestep the fierce sectional antagonisms of the domestic scene by ambitiously and aggressively promoting the extension of U.S. territorial and commercial interests abroad. In an effort to buy the island of Cuba from Spain, he ordered the U.S. minister to Spain, Pierre Soul, to try to secure the influence of European financiers on the Spanish government. The resulting diplomatic statement, the Ostend Manifesto (October 1854), was interpreted by the American public as a call to wrest Cuba from Spain by force if necessary. The ensuing controversy forced the administration to disclaim responsibility for the document and to recall Soul. In 1855 an American adventurer, William Walker, conducted a notorious expedition into Central America with the hope of establishing a proslavery government under the control of the United States. In Nicaragua he established himself as military dictactor and then as president, and his dubious regime was recognized by the Pierce administration. A more lasting diplomatic achievement came from the expedition that Pres. Millard Fillmore had sent to Japan in 1853 under Commodore Matthew C. Perry. In 1854 Pierce received Perrys report that his expedition had been successful and that U.S. ships would have limited access to Japanese ports. The Pierce administration also reorganized the diplomatic and consular service and created the United States Court of Claims. Among Pierces domestic policies were preparations for a transcontinental railroad and the opening of the Northwest for settlement. In 1853, in order to create a southerly route to California, the U.S. minister to Mexico, James Gadsden, negotiated the purchase of almost 30,000 square miles of Mexican territory (the Gadsden Purchase), for $10 million. Mainly to stimulate migration to the Northwest and to facilitate the construction of a central route to the Pacific, Pierce signed the Kansas-Nebraska Act in 1854. This measure, which opened two new territories for settlement, included repeal of the Missouri Compromise of 1820 (by which slavery in the territories was prohibited north of latitude 36 30) and provided that the status of the territories as free or slave would be decided by popular sovereignty. The indignation aroused by the act and the resulting period of violent conflict in the Kansas Territory were the main causes of the rise of the Republican Party in the mid-1850s. Owing to his ineptness in handling the situation in Kansas, Pierce was denied renomination by the Democrats, and he remains the only president to be so repudiated by his party. After an extended tour of Europe he retired to Concord. Always a heavy drinker, Pierce descended further into apparent alcoholism, and he died in obscurity. The table provides a list of cabinet members in the administration of President Franklin Pierce.
