As a Nation ~ We are DONE, unless…

On Thursday, June 4th, 2020, Danny Pruitt was on his way to dinner, when “peaceful protester” blocked the road and one of them fired a round through his window, hitting him in the back of the head.

Shot in the head, Danny tried to drive away but only made it about a mile from the scene. Officers of the Alamosa Police Department found him unconscious slumped over the wheel. He was taken by ambulance to San Luis Valley Health Center and was later flown to another hospital in critical condition with a bullet lodged in his brain. Danny is now on life support, fighting for his life. Continue reading

“What’s all this ‘bro” shit?

Realign all
The stars
Above my head
Warning signs
Travel far
I drink instead
On my own
Oh, how I’ve known
The battle scars

In my opinion, the BEST film that Clint Eastwood ever did. WARNING: Harsh and Vulgar language – but says what should be said today! ~ Ed

America: Gone With the Radical Wind

“Detest all those white men if you will, but they were the ones who created the nation we inherited.” ~ Pat Buchanan, June 15th 2020

America witnessed a fairly intense campaign to remove or destroy statues memorializing revered and honored men of the Confederate States of America in 2017, and in the wake of George Floyd’s murder by a policeman in Minneapolis, once again, America is seeing a broader range of destruction aimed at any and all statues, monuments, and memorials honoring all those men of impeccable character, who had some part in making America exceptional. Rioting, looting and burning American cities are no longer enough, and in their ignorance of historical fact, they peddle their revisionist history without factual foundation, and they also seek to destroy every last vestige, right down to the tiniest bit, of American history, even the movie ‘Gone With the Wind‘, while police and public officials stand down, and even encourage them.

Trained Marxists: Communists Preserve Their Own Power–and to hell with everyone else!

Recently someone on the East Coast sent me a copy of The Epoch Times newspaper for June 11th. In the opinion section of the paper there was an informative article by a Diana Zhang. As she has family in China this is a pen name, used to protect them.

Ms. Zhang had an informative article on the Chinese Communist Party, which is probably typical of most Communist Parties. Zhang noted that: “China has a unique model: ‘Enrich the party and exploit the people…When the CCP first took over China it killed landowners and took their land, killed business owners and took their businesses. Private property became state-owned–actually, CCP owned. Everything in China is owned by the CCP. When China’s economy was close to falling off a cliff, Western countries bailed out the CCP. With the opening of trade and the U.S. market to China, China privatized a lot of the land, but CCP officials and their relatives got the lion’s share of opportunities. The CCP used the ideals of socialism to rob people of their property, then privatized it into their own hands.” Continue reading

Dwyer: Against Reconciliation

Sack of Rome by the Visigoths 24 August 410 by JN Sylvestre 1890

The statues and monuments honoring Confederate soldiers and their commanders were a tribute to American national reconciliation after the Civil War has ended in 1865. Now, an anti-American, anti-white cabal is calling for their desecration and removal because they allegedly are symbols of racism and slavery that bring painful memories of the past.

That is an unproven nonsense, or B.S. ~ using colloquial language.

The Civil War was not about slavery, although many tried to falsely portray it as such. After all, Lincoln, in his First Inaugural Address, declared that he had no intention to impose the abolition of slavery on the South, leaving it to individual states to decide. The Civil War was mainly about excessive taxation of the productive South by the revenue-hungry North. The Confederate soldiers who gave their young lives in the War were not fighting in the defense of slavery, although some of them might think they were. They were told that they were defending their Confederate States from armed invasion from the Union. They were fighting against imposition of grossly uneven federal tariffs and duties that benefited the North at the expense of the South. There is no shred of credible evidence that they were all or predominantly racist or advocates of slavery. But now, every single Confederate soldier that died in that War has been posthumously declared a “racist” and a “slavery defender” as if their young lives lost in the War were waste that did not matter.

Black Lives Matter is a Modern Totalitarian Revolution

If we allow the Black Lives Matter movement to become America’s Bolshevik Revolution, we will lose our liberty, and many of us will likely lose our lives, as well, for daring to question them. This was never about racism. It has been about power…

Classic totalitarian regimes share a number of common characteristics. The rise of these regimes began with a cultural revolution, aimed at angering the citizens against the current system. During that period domestic enemies are designated, and the people in the radical movement aiming at overthrowing the old system rally together against those common enemies, calling it a common struggle, as they adopt a new official ideology that stands significantly apart from the old one. They seek to control every aspect of the lives of their people, enlisting everyone they can to participate in the struggle. Even persons who may belong to enemy classes or groups join up, hoping to receive mercy when the new regime gains control. In Stalin’s Russia and Mao’s China the enemies were anyone who reminded them of the old system, and anyone who could challenge them if left with enough power. The state enemies were the capitalists, landlords, richer peasants and foreign agents of all kinds. Nazi Germany included those outside the national community, which included socialists (even though Nazism was a form of socialism) and communists, Jews, Christians, and any ethnic minorities that did not fit into the German model of a loyal elite specimen.

The American Press Is Destroying Itself

A flurry of newsroom revolts has transformed the American press

Sometimes it seems life can’t get any worse in this country. Already in terror of a pandemic, Americans have lately been bombarded with images of grotesque state-sponsored violence, from the murder of George Floyd to countless scenes of police clubbing and brutalizing protesters. Continue reading

A different story? Draw your own conclusion.

It’s time to get rid of your $20 bills…

…to judge everyone from the past based on the values of today – there truly is no end to how much of history would need to be erased.

On May 12, 1703, the Russian army under Peter the Great captured an important Swedish fort on the Baltic Sea called Nyenskans.

It was a major victory for Peter in his war against the Swedish Empire. Russia was a rising power in the early 1700s, but Peter was in critical need of a Baltic seaport to be able to trade with the rest of Europe…

The capture of Nyenskans was so important that Peter decided to move his capital there. And he renamed it Saint Petersburg.

Technically he called it “Sankt-Pieter-Burch,” which is a Dutch/German spelling of the name; Peter made tremendous efforts throughout his reign to westernize Russia, and naming his capital city in a European style was part of that effort. Continue reading

I Grew Up in a Communist System…

Here’s What Americans Don’t Understand About Freedom

Only in a free-market system can we truly achieve individual liberty and human flourishing.

 

Individual freedom can only exist in the context of free-market capitalism. Personal freedom thrives in capitalism, declines in government-regulated economies, and vanishes in communism. Aside from better economic and legislative policies, what America needs is a more intense appreciation for individual freedom and capitalism. Continue reading
