The Real Story is much more interesting and has gone untold in fear that feelings would be hurt. It’s a story of war, the most brutal and bloody war, military might and power pushed upon civilians, women, children and elderly. Never seen as a war crime, this was the policy of the greatest nation on earth trying to maintain that status at all costs. An unhealed wound remains in the hearts of some people of the southern states even today; on the other hand, the policy of slavery has been an open wound that has also been slow to heal but is okay to talk about.
The story of THE BLACK EYED PEA being considered good luck relates directly back to Sherman’s Bloody March to the Sea in late 1864. It was called The Savannah Campaign and was lead by Major General William T. Sherman. The Civil War campaign began on 11/15/64 when Sherman ‘s troops marched from the captured city of Atlanta, Georgia, and ended at the port of Savannah on 12/22/1864.
When the smoke cleared, the southerners who had survived the onslaught came out of hiding. They found that the blue belly aggressors that had looted and stolen everything of value and everything you could eat including all livestock, death and destruction were everywhere. While in hiding, few had enough to eat, and starvation was now upon the survivors.
There was no international aid, no Red Cross meal trucks. The Northern army had taken everything they could carry and eaten everything they could eat. But they couldn’t take it all. The devastated people of the south found for some unknown reason that Sherman ’s bloodthirsty troops had left silos full of black eyed peas.
At the time in the north, the lowly black eyed pea was only used to feed stock. The northern troops saw it as the thing of least value. Taking grain for their horses and livestock and other crops to feed themselves, they just couldn’t take everything. So they left the black eyed peas in great quantities assuming it would be of no use to the survivors, since all the livestock it could feed had either been taken or eaten.
Southerners awoke to face a new year in this devastation and were facing massive starvation if not for the good luck of having the black eyed peas to eat. From New Years Day 1866 forward, the tradition grew to eat black eyed peas on New Year’s Day for good luck.”

We Christians, patriots, gun owners, etc. are already considered to be terrorists and therefore the enemy of the present federal government. Many of us are on what is known as the “Red List” (extension more or less of the TSA no fly list). This has been proven by several different ways such as the various notifications to local law enforcement personnel from the federal agencies fed by ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and various other leftist/socialist/communist fronts including Socialist Democrats (i.e.Bernie Sanders). Many of the present Democrats in congress are actually SD’s. Therefore, it is only reasonable to assume that WE will suffer nearly the same consequences as the people of Atlanta-Savannah when the present US Federal government declares martial law. Think about it. We are all skating on very thin ice. There are many undeclared wars going on right now. Among them, weather warfare, economic wars, geopolitical (ISIL) and several others. If you wonder why ISIL is mentioned, it is the term used by the occupant of the White House instead of the widely used ‘IS’ or ‘ISIS’ terms. Please see: http://www.ibtimes.com/isil-isis-islamic-state-daesh-whats-difference-2187131a
With those definitions in mind, it should be evident that the WH occupant and his czars are in league with the ‘Levant’ version which intends to destroy Israel, the entire Middle East, Europe, and in due time the USA, putting all under Sharia Law. Make no mistake about the Invasion of Europe (and USA) by the muslim/islam hordes. They are NOT refugees. They are being pushed into countries that the Powers To Be want to destroy so that the NWO can be put into place.
Will we have ‘martial law’ before/during/after ‘financial collapse’, ‘WWIII to cover for the banksters’, ‘civil (really uncivil) war’, or some other disaster? Your guess is as good as mine, but there is one thing that is almost a certainty. One or more of the above is going to happen and the present government will be as brutal or more so than that of the civil war Union troops. WE may be happy to just get “BLACK EYED PEAS”.
May GOD Bless you and yours in the days ahead.
