Ann Wilson Smith is a Southern gal with a family history of Southern History. Her Dad, Clyde Smith studied and wrote about Southern, specifically South Carolina, heritage. Ann Wilson Smith has her Southern heritage website* called Reckonin' (no "g") and has also written a book on the Anarcho-Tyranny that took place during and after the "Unite the Right" rally 6 years ago in what was to be a peaceful defense of the heritage, hence, a famous statue, of Robert E. Lee.

She, with 3 articles, and Jason Kessler, with a dozen, have kept VDare readers up on the aftermath of Charlottesville. No, it's not over for the ctrl-left. They will not stop coming after the Americans with lawfare and even criminal prosecution.

Last week Miss Wilson wrote Communist Coup In Charlottesville: Invictus Arrested For Tiki Torch Parade. This Augustus Invictus shown on the right in the VDare image is a flamboyant lawyer with a political bent - Conservative/Libertarian - and somewhat of a "colorful"** past. He's on the side of the Historic American Nation, as VDare calls it, and is on our side.

Mr. Augustus was there in Charlottesville that day, the 11th of August of '17, and he got arrested just a week or so ago, 6 years later on some charges or other. Unfortunately, for the life of me, I can't find out WHAT charges (this article doesn't say), but some of them have been about the bearing of tiki-torches. Yeah, you can come up with anything. 5 others have been arrested THIS YEAR on various charges related to the events that day in '17.

There are Statutes of Limitations for crimes. However, a Totalitarian official like the ones involved here can just go for the crime with the appropriately-long Statute of Limitations that works for him. "You pick the man, I'll pick the crime with the right Statute of Limitations", is the new take by the new Lavrentiy Beria's. The Founders never saw THAT coming.

An important point made by Mr. Invictus is that (he figures) the Charlottesville Anarcho-Tyranny was a warm-up, "prototype" he puts it, for the narrative and aftermath of the January 6th, '21 protest. After J6, the crimes that these over 1,000 protesters stuck in Washington, FS dungeons supposedly committed are things a member of the ctrl-left would not even have been detained for. We have a full record of this from the summer of '20. It's not like there weren't any cameras or microphones around! It's the same story for the alt-right arrestees and prisoners*** after Charlottesville.

Mr. Invictus, as per Miss Smith's article:
It's supposed to be a great divide between a legal prosecution and a political prosecution... Conservatives are really coming to understand Charlottesville was the prototype for J6. You create this alternate reality of what actually happened at the event, and you dragnet prosecute everybody you can get your hands on... Charlottesville was the watershed moment, and J6 was just where everybody finally woke up.
Well I wouldn't agree that everybody has finally woken up. Those on our side who know some details should have. The contradiction between what we saw happen in person, heard about from people there, saw on youtube, or read about and the Potomac Regime narrative is huge. The lies are blatant, which works pretty well, I'll admit, on the majority of Americans who still watch TV news and read yahoo headlines.

PS: Who's that Jim Hingeley, you may be asking? He is a Soros-supported "Commonwealth Attorney, I guess a D/A, who was installed errr, elected, in '19 with one campaign issue being the bringing of charges (any charges would do) against the Charlottesville Unite-the-Right protesters. The previous holder of that office, one Robert Tracci, did not see fit to issue charges. More prosecution shopping. The Founders never saw A LOT of this shit coming.

PPS: "Communists", as used by Miss Smith and often by Peak Stupidity, or just run-of-the-mill Totalitarians? They're not preaching economic Communism (yet), but what's the difference between these people and those who'd done the same in the old USSR, East Bloc, Red China, etc, etc, etc...?

* I've checked it out. There's pretty good writing on there, not much of it very political at first glance. I'll keep up with this one.

** I would go with "checkered" instead of colorful, but without information from someone I trust, I have no idea how politically motivated his past convictions for spousal abuse and such are. It's easy to set men up, especially if you're a woman. UPDATE: See Mr. Hail's comment below. He knows a lot more about this "gentleman". He would go with "narcissistic cult leader".

*** We should not forget James Fields. He received a ridiculous 400 years + life (how's that work?) sentence, for what was manslaughter at worst case. An average American charged with that would have gotten a handful of years max. That is, if it WERE manslaughter, rather than what I think in this case, a panicked man escaping attack whose muscle car collided with a roley-poley.

PS: Mr. Kief, VDare doesn't have anything directly to do with this Augustus Invictus (yeah, there's a bit of LOL in even typing that, because one particular Monty Python skit comes to mind). He's just mentioned in this article from writer/blogger Ann Smith, as the latest example (with those 5 others in the article) being persecuted long after the act, the act being pretty indeterminate until charges get filed.

I meant to write a paragraph about the following in the post:

VDare is an anti-immigration-invasion site, and the've done a hell of a job for almost 2 1/2 decades publishing writers who cover the topic from all directions. However, the death of the "Historic American Nation" is part of this - they don't hide their point of immigration control to keep the original White populations, rather than just talk about the problem of the numbers alone. This Cultural Revolution with its Communist-style historic revisionism is within this area of there's. So, they wrote a lot about the Charlottesville event at the time, and they keep us up on it, mostly via Jason Kessler.

But no, VDare would not be on record particularly supporting the more general work of Augustus Invictus. The writing at VDare always stays highly on the sane and civil side.

Thanks Mr. Hail. - I wonder what VDARE wants to have to do with this august personae's man? And the Smith family?

Still: The Charlottesville-indictment might be off the rails too.

PS: Thanks for all that information about the cult-leader lawyer who named himself Augustus Invictus, Mr. Hail. I only did a cursory search on him.

Firstly, I agree with you completely about the problems of polygamy for society. (I didn't know all that detail about the Mormons either, I take it back before they left Missouri and got themselves into their own space out in Utah.)

I read the Eric Striker post and your complete comment there. (I'd rather read your transcription than watch bat-shit-crazy lady's youtube, errr, presentation anyway.) The crazy women cultists do crazy women things. For a group trying to present itself to the country as part of a good cause, no, you don't want that stuff associated with you.

From what you wrote, one could definitely call Mr. Invictus a cult leader, not the big time like a Koresh or Jones, but still, it does give whomever he speaks up for a bad reputation or a way for the Establishment to belittle the entire political group. OTOH, guys like this are used to dealing with the law and jail. They can sometimes have the courage, which is probably just that narcissism coming out, to get notice and raise hell where and when others would elect to stay home.

I don't know if this man believed in the cause at C-ville. If he didn't, one might suspect he's somewhat of an agent provocateur. I don't think that was the case there and that day. I'm going from some details in Miss Smith's VDare post.

About lawyers now. I imagine the 9-5, maybe 9-9!, corporate lawyers doing the tax stuff or mergers, or what-have-you, are stable individuals. I have not experienced this with ambulance chaser/ divorce types. Of 2 lawyers I've known fairly well, one a neighbor and one a friend (till I'd had enough), each had their weirdness. I would not want to be around them for long.

I know one criminal defense (at least that's one of his thing) lawyer who also stands up for libertarian/constitutionalist principles. He got himself involved in a few of those events that have been in the news over the last 30 years. He seems like a good guy. About the only weirdness was his having his rag taildragger plane decked out with a Nazi symbol on the back. His position was that this was a Nazi warbird (observation or whatever), but yet, it was made in America. Colorful, but not psycho or even narcissistic...

-- Criticism of Augustus S. Invictus: On cults, Western Mankind's standards of decency, and the Devil's temptation --

I am wary of the character who goes by the name Augustus Invictus, more than you are willing to be here. You let him off with the phrase "colorful past." Some years ago, he lost any sympathy from me he may have once had. I will try to explain "why," in the words to follow. This may seem harsh and over-critical to some, but it lays out why many have a problem with this man, and others like him (including the likes of the mixed-race Black pimp and social-media influencer known as Andrew Tate, under arrest on charge of sexual crimes in Romania).

Augustus Invictus sought to set himself up as a polygamist. This involved entranced Manson-girls who called each other "sister-wives."

In other words, he was a cult leader. And that's really in the classic sense of the word "cult." That is, "cult" used non-metaphorically. Not like the way people may speak of a Trump cult or even speaking of an "Alt-Right cult" of the mid-late 2010s, but actually a classic "David Koresh" kind of cult. The religiosity and pomposity of legally changing his name to be that of a Roman god kind of gives the game away from the start.

The sexual-cult 'thing' going on attracted instability, in part unstable persons (r borderlines who are aggravated over the edge), scandal, jealousies, crimes or rumors of crimes (including a kidnapping charge), negative attention, and demoralization when such things went public. Variants of this story recur in several other parts of the one-time Alt-Right.

That Augustus S. Invictus also sought to make himself a public-face of a political movement, a kind of spokesman for the Alt-Right of the late 2010s, WHILE leading such a disreputable life, is itself a scandal. It is suggestive that he found the milieu convenient but did not really believe in it. This may be true for lots of political figures near the head of movements through the years, but that it happens is not an excuse for it. Of course, in whatever latest trouble he is in, he will appeal for sympathy using the political line, and others innocent of any involvement in anything scandalous will find it convenient to wave the banner on his behalf.

I believe Augustus Invictus was a "practicing pagan," with overtones of satanism involving ritual blood-sacrifice of animals and drinking of those animals' blood, which fits the overall bill with the cult-leader persona he created in the 2010s. A certain type of young woman was attracted to such a thing at the time, the peak era of the "cool Vampire" archetype from a series of movies and tv shows.

From the traditional Western view, this whole set-up he had going was extremely anti-social. They were things to be deplored, rebuked, shunned, attacked. That is why early Mormons were generally considered enemies of civilization, for although many of the individuals were no-doubt good people, the whole Mormon whole set-up in the mid-1800s ran against that central tenet of Western Mankind's traditional greatness: the White middle-class civilization in which every man had a stake, productive, dignified, and of some degree of common cause (the early Mormons set up a polygamist police-state and used a vast network of internal spying against 'Gentiles,' which means all of the rest of us; they also tried and sometimes succeeded in peeling off any woman passing through to join the religion and become an additional wife to a Mormon; stories of open propositioning of White women along emigrant trails by unkempt Mormon males, shocked and disgusted most emigrant women but a small number will sometimes go for it).

The polygamy thing is what Africans or Muslims do. Our civilization has standards, standards that served us well down through the centuries. It seems like the turning away from those standards correlates quite closely with Western Decline. Figures like Augustus Invictus are, for me, figures of Decline, who seek to profit off of what is perceived to be a diseased body-politic. One need not single him out, for there are so many like him around in our time; but one ought not forgive him for it, especially as he purported to be a leader and did attain some followers who thought he was something he wasn't.

If any reading this have followed the sordid saga of Andrew Tate, the part-Black manosphere figure (social-media personality) who is said to have kept sex slaves in Romania and trafficked girls, but also staked out a position in a kind of dissident politics and gained followers for it, I think the cases are similar. These are not good men to hitch one's wagon to.

The man who calls himself Augustus Invictus, besides being anti-Christian, may have been mentally unstable but was able to channel that instability into specific directions. As he matured, he found the mental-instability receding, maybe, but the power that such energy, properly channeled, too tempting to give up. He refined his act into that of a highly skilled charismatic con-man.

With such people, political views are often just a veneer. It was even the same with Charles Manson, who himself preach a weird form of politics to his little group in California. And a long list of others.

David Koresh became an icon because he and his dozens of followers went down in flames at Waco, but, appraised objectively, he was nothing to admire. Wasn't it said that of the unusually large number of babies recovered at Waco belonging to multiple women members of the compound (an unusually large number of babies given the number of women), Koresh had fathered almost all the babies?


I don't doubt that there is some kind of political motivation to target the character known as Augustus Invictus.

But, with characters like this, a great deal of the problems that seem to swirl around them are brought on by their own pride, and by the Devil's temptation to exploit others to aggrandize the self.


Here is some primary material of one the scandals around this character, as of early 2020 and one of his latest criminal trials. One of the women in his cult had renamed herself Psyche Invictus and posted some messages at the time:

(I refer specifically to my comment, dated Jan. 17th, 2020; consisting in part of a transcript of a monologue by girlfriend or sister-wife Psyche Invictus.)
