Asa Earl Carter (September 4, 1925 – June 7, 1979) was a Ku Klux Klan leader, segregationist speech writer, and later famed western novelist. He was most notable for publishing novels and a best-selling, award-winning memoir under the name Forrest Carter, an identity as a Native American Cherokee. In 1976, following the publication success of his western The Rebel Outlaw: Josey Wales, The New York Times revealed Forrest Carter to be Southerner Asa Earl Carter.
Prior to his literary career as "Forrest", Carter was politically active for years in Alabama as an opponent of the civil rights movement: he worked as a speechwriter for segregationist Governor George Wallace of Alabama; founded the North Alabama Citizens Council (NACC), an independent offshoot of the White Citizens' Council movement, and an independent Ku Klux Klan group, and started a pro-segregation monthly entitled The Southerner.
" Milteer was apparently associated with the National States Rights Party and the White Citizens Council and actively opposed to integration and social justice."
His real name was Asa (Ace) Earl Carter. We share a common Southern heritage and he may be a distant relation of mine. Between 1946 and 1973, the Alabama native carved out a violent career in Southern politics as a Ku Klux Klan terrorist, right-wing radio announcer, home-grown American fascist and anti-Semite, rabble-rousing demagogue and secret author of the famous 1963 speech by Gov. George Wallace of Alabama: "Segregation now . . . Segregation tomorrow . . . Segregation forever."
He even organized a paramilitary unit of about 100 men that he called the Original Ku Klux Klan of the Confederacy. Among its acts, these white-sheeted sociopaths assaulted Nat (King) Cole during a concert in Birmingham in 1956. In 1957, the group, without Mr. Carter present, castrated a black man they chose at random in a Birmingham suburb as a warning to "uppity" Alabama blacks.
But anyone who transformed himself into a new-age wise man for the greening of America while taking the name of "Forrest" Carter couldn't have been entirely humorless. Mr. Carter, after all, took his new name from Nathan Bedford Forrest, the tobacco-chewing ex-mule skinner, slave trader and Civil War general who founded the original Ku Klux Klan in Tennessee in 1866.
"Here we see the Ku Klux Klan's Masonic Origins. It was founded in Pulaski, Tennessee, in 1866 by 6 Confederate officers. One of them, and the first Imperial Wizard of the KKK, was a former Confederate general and Freemason, Nathan Bedford Forrest. Albert Pike held the office of Chief Justice of the KKK while he was simultaneously Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite of Masonry, in the Southern Jurisdiction. Everywhere we turn nowadays, we are seeing the occult connection between New World Order organizations, especially in false religious denominations. "
Carter made the national news again on September 1 and 2 of the same year, after he gave an inflammatory anti-integration speech in Clinton, Tennessee. He addressed Clinton's high school enrolling twelve black students. After Carter's speech, an aroused mob of 200 white men stopped black drivers passing through, "ripping out hood ornaments and smashing windows". They were heading for the house of the mayor before being turned back by the local Sheriff. Carter appeared in Clinton alongside segregationist John Kasper, who was charged later that same month with sedition and inciting a riot for his activities that day.
That Labor Day weekend, white pro-segregationists, led by Asa Carter, arrived in Clinton and began to rally many white citizens to join them in protests against the black students and the prospect of integration. Full scale rioting broke out. Cars were overturned, windows smashed, and African American travelers, some of them serviceman who happened to be coming through, were frightened. Youngsters and juvenile-minded adults had taken over the town, threatening to dynamite the mayor's house, the newspaper plant, and even the courthouse. The black residential community was also threatened by segretationists driving through. The small Clinton police force was overwhelmed, and city officials asked Tennessee Governor Frank G. Clement for help. Other city residents formed a "Home Guard" to protect property and lives from the white mob until state assistance could arrive. The Home Guard courageously confronted the mob on the courthouse square, but no violence resulted. With the arrival of approximately 600 guardsmen, and their occupation of the town, the worse of the violence abated.11 The use of the National Guard was another first in the Civil Rights Movement. The National Guard stayed in Clinton for the rest of September to keep order.
As the intimidation escalated, shots were fired at the home of two black students attending Clinton High School, and dynamite blasts punctuated the peace of the county. Kasper returned to Clinton in November and organized a Junior White Citizens Council composed mostly of high school students.12
1958 On Sunday, October 5, the school was blown apart by three massive explosions.
1958-60 CHS students were transported to Oak Ridge to continue classes while the school was rebuilt.
1963 Plans were presented to consolidate several elementary schools, create 2 junior high schools, and construct a new Clinton Senior High School for grades 10-12.
NASA and the Masons is interesting from the standpoint of Reily Coffee workers that knew Lee Harvey Oswald got nice high paying jobs working for NASA in New Orleans. Most don't notice, but NASA's astronauts are almost all Masons. The plot to frame LHO came from these Old Southern Confederates in Alabama and the home of the German rocket scientists at RedStone Arsenal at Huntsville, Ala. Masons highly controlled NASA because of the issues of Hitler being pro-Catholic and going against the Masons order in NAZI Germany. imho
We also know the Lyndon Johnson was the father of NASA, and he was a Mason connected with Mason Hoover. Those that knew LHO had to get a payoff to keep quiet, and the Masons have great job connections to bribe people into silence.
Never forget that NASA was basically started by Masons: Dulles, Truman, and LBJ, and its ranks are filled with Masons.
As an example, These are Mason Astronauts of NASA:
Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr., Clear Lake Lodge No. 1417, Seabrook, TX
Leroy Gordon Cooper, Carbondale Lodge No. 82, Carbondale, CO
Donn F. Eisele, Luthor B. Turner Lodge No. 732, Columbus, OH
John Glenn, Concord Lodge No. 688, Concord, OH
Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom, Mitchell Lodge No. 228, Mitchell, IN
James Irwin, Tejon Lodge No. 104, Colorado Springs, CO
Edgar Mitchell, Artesia Lodge No. 28, Artesia, NM
Walter M. Schirra, Jr., Canaveral Lodge No. 339, Cocoa Beach, FL
Thomas Stafford, Western Star Lodge No. 138, Weatherford, OK

MONTEAGLE, Tenn. -- Rosa Parks trained here a few months before she refused to give up her seat on an Alabama bus. We Shall Overcome became a civil rights anthem here. Student activists from Nashville held retreats in the lakeside buildings, and Eleanor Roosevelt and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. came to visit.
More than 50 years after the state of Tennessee seized Highlander Folk School's property, not much remains of a place that gave so much inspiration to people who fought for social justice while posing such a visceral threat to the status quo that its founder was accused of being a Communist agitator.
Born in Savannah, Tenn., in 1905, Horton longed to start a school that would help poor Southerners confront the forces that oppressed them. After studying folk schools in Denmark, he returned to the U.S. in 1932 and, with collaborator Don West, found a key supporter in Lilian Johnson, who owned 200 acres in Monteagle.
Once Johnson agreed to lease her land to Horton and West, the organization they had described to prospective donors as "The Southern Mountains School" was on its way. West or his wife, Connie, later came up with the name "Highlander Folk School," Horton wrote in his autobiography, The Long Haul.
"Highlander was really the place that kept We Shall Overcome alive," she said.
King had first heard We Shall Overcome when Seeger played it at Highlander in 1957, Garrow writes. The civil rights leader later told associates, "There's something about that song that haunts you."
"This place has the potential," he said, "to tell a story that hasn't been told."
JFK Assassination: One Month After JFK’s Murder, Former President Harry Truman Called For Abolishing The CIA
In an op-ed column published in the Washington Post on Dec. 22, 1963, Truman never linked the CIA to President Kennedy’s murder, but the timing of the explicit and strongly worded column and complaint implied a connection.
“For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment,” Truman wrote. “It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the Government. This has led to trouble and may have compounded our difficulties in several explosive areas.”
In a letter by General Albert Pike to his brother in 1875 he said, "I am not inclined to mettle in the matter. I took my obligations to white men, not to Negroes. When I have to accept Negroes as brothers or leave Masonry, I shall leave it." Masonic and Grand Lodges generally excluded African Americans. Since the votes were anonymous, it was impossible to identify the member who had voted against accepting a black member. The effect was the black men who had legitimately been made Masons in integrated jurisdictions could be rejected.
