This is the official web page of the Confederate States of America. Official statutes and journals of Congress of 1861-1865 are contained herein and are, for the most part, still binding upon the Confederate States of America as is the ratified C.S.A. Constitution of 1861.
The national Government of the Confederate States of America does not, at this time, have any salaried personnel, but does pay some reimbursement of expenses of contractors for work contracted for by the government. It is important to note that the national Government is not structured to legally have control of the State C.S.A. Governments, but rather for them to function with the national Government and each other in accordance with the national C.S.A. Constitution and their own State Confederate Constitutions according to the dictates of the Citizens therein.
The Government of the Confederate States of America is not a political party nor a club but a government and thus does not endorse any political party or candidate nor club or other organization. Nevertheless, the Government does appreciate positive support by such other organizations and/or political parties and the C.S.A. Registered Citizens will elect candidates to hold the various offices of the various Confederate Governments.
The Government of the Confederate States of America never officially surrendered to the Federal Union and thus still exists as an occupied government under the control of the Federal Union (UNITED STATES, INC.) in the Southern States of America including: Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, No. Carolina, So. Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia and within the Territory of Arizona and the provisional Territories including Colorado, Oklahoma, Kansas, Maryland, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming.
C.S.A. Registered Citizens live in these various states and are eligible to vote in Confederate elections. Non-voting C.S.A. Registered Citizens also live in a number of Northern and Western states which are not considered part of the territory claimed by the Confederacy and thus may not vote in Confederate elections unless they move to a Confederate State or Territory.
Most C.S.A. Registered Citizens are also U. S. Citizens by virtue of the 14th Amendment of the U. S. Constitution, which is not necessarily recognized by the Confederate States of America, but yet applies due to the occupation and thus such C.S.A. Registered Citizens may individually vote in U. S. and U. S. Satellite State elections.
So long as a peace treaty between the Confederate States of America and the Federal Union (United States of America) recognized by the UNITED STATES, INC. has not been signed and thus occupation and reconstruction still apply, the governments of the Confederate States and the Citizens thereof are obliged to obey the laws of the occupying nation.
No new treaty between the Confederate States of America and any foreign government other than the occupying nation (Federal Union or the United States of America) may legally be concluded, but the subjects of the occupation living in the South, whether or not they are C.S.A. Registered Citizens, may avail themselves legally to the laws and supposed rights and protections of the U. S. Constitution.
Meanwhile and prior to a negotiated peace treaty and termination of occupation, the C.S.A. Registered Citizens are admonished to avoid any form of military hostility against the Federal Union or the satellite states thereof. We pray that the Lord will bless His people if we are worthy and that He will shield the innocent from harm as in the Lord’s prayer.
In the Service of Almighty God,
The Confederate Council

@J, I'd start with the statement that the government of the CSA never officially surrendered. The government might not have but the military did, which is really how hostilities end, and subsequent peace treaties establish the victor and terms of peace.

Well, the USA was also once an Empire, ruled by the Imperial Majesty Norton I ;-)
To claim that the Confederate States of America still exist today is of a similiar quality.

Sore losers, aren't you?
6/26/2011 4:02:15 AM
So,can we officially prosecute you for treason?
Go ahead, make my day.

We should encourage this, it might be the begining of the United States of Canada and Jesusland.
Hint, it's not the Lord that blesses your bankrupt southern states but the taxes paid by the liberals up north. No, the Lord just sends you hurricanes and tornados.

Batshit insane yes, but is it fundie?

United States of Canada!? Wash your mouth out with soap!

What's the significance of the Chinese guy?

If I'm not mistaken, that's a character from Deliverance. A story about a family of ultra-inbred assrapers living in the mountains.

He's the banjo playing kid in Deliverance.

I like the list of states that they claim. Kentucky and Maryland didn't secede, and Kansas actually joined the Union during the Civil War.
6/26/2011 5:21:56 AM
@Anon2, comparing the modern CSA to Emperor Norton I does a disservice to the memory of the latter.

Dear Confederate Council.
Your goals, words and means are utterly futile shit. The only way you can redeem yourself is by taking a good look at your puny self and doing something that will make everyone's lives better.
For fun and profit, the Illuminati.

For starters, take Maryland off your list of traitor states, you filthy liar.
My home state was NEVER part of the Confederacy. Maryland has grown into a true blue state of which any liberal can be proud, and I take offense to any false claim of it having such a sordid past.

Has to be a poe.

Why do I have the feeling this is not run by graying white males in even whiter suits, but instead by a morbidly obese nacho-swilling guy wearing ill-fitting sweat-stained grey shirts from the basement of his parent's house?

Well in that case, George III never officially admitted defeat in the War of Independence, that was done by his cowardly and traitorous parliament and doesn't count.
America is therefore still a British colony. Someone will be with your shortly to discuss your back taxes.

"The Government of the Confederate States of America is not a political party nor a club but a government and thus does not endorse any political party or candidate nor club or other organization."
Except for organized religion. Which is totally not an organization. Pinky swear.

Why do these idiots not understand that because the Confederacy was not an internationally recognized nation, but rather States in rebellion, that gave Robert E. Lee full authority to sign an official surrender? As the military commander of that rebellion he had as much, if not more authority than Jefferson Davis ever did.
6/26/2011 6:17:53 AM
DAMN YOU, SOUTHERN STATES!
I knew that something like this was going to happen once people from the Deep South discovered the Internet; I knew it. Not only do the Rebs fail law forever, but support of the Confederacy equals support of slavery, so go die in a fire, Johnny Reb.
6/26/2011 6:18:42 AM
You lost. Get the fuck over it!

In lieu of the fact that "The Government of the Confederate States of America never officially surrendered to the Federal Union ..." we have this weasel-worded statement of the most abject and thoroughly demeaning cowardly surrender to an occupying force, ever. For example, ".... the governments of the Confederate States and the Citizens thereof are obliged to obey the laws of the occupying nation." and, "....prior to a negotiated peace treaty and termination of occupation, the C.S.A. Registered Citizens are admonished to avoid any form of military hostility against the Federal Union or the satellite states thereof."
Former slavers reduced to the most side-splitingly servile cowering ever. Where is your pride? Where is your courage? Where is your nobleness? Where is your will to die for your freedom and the freedom of your children? Your masters look down on you from their vantage places in New York, Chicago and San Francisco etc, pointing their fingers and laughing at your slavish complicity. They say, "There goes The Confederate Council. They were born, they enjoyed a life of rabid fantasy, and then they died. And what did they accomplish? Nothing?" That's right, nothing! The Confederate Council are big zeroes.
To all intents and purposes, after reading the so-called Confederate Council's farcical statement, The Confederate Council might just as well not exist. It's just another fundamentalist fantasy scenario for degenerate adults.
