Americans, Once Defenders of Freedom, Have Turned Into Sniveling Cowards

“The most effective leaders are actually better at guarding against danger when they acknowledge it that it exists. Cowards, in contrast, cling to the hope that failure will never happen and may be sloppy in the face of danger – not because they don’t acknowledge that it exists, but because they are just too afraid of it to look it in the eye.” ~ Simon Sinek, contemporary author and speaker

The forces of evil have stripped your land of civility and reason. Domestic terrorists, with only violence on their minds, have invaded your peaceful tranquility. They care nothing about you, your property, or your right to live and work in peace. They laugh at you while you scurry for cover, or complain to a government that doesn’t hear you. Continue reading

Smith: Fight for the Soul of America

I have mulled the problem of this communist movement in our country over and over again, and I only know for sure, that for me, there’s no compromise to be had, regarding the demands that are first and foremost in their agenda, as they use Antifa, BLM, the Queer Community and the Global Warming Alarmists as their shock-troops, their modern day Brown Shirts. They are using the immoral dregs of society to destroy the very infrastructure necessary to ever make America better through truly proactive and benevolent pursuits that come through the mutual cooperation of all Americans rather than intimidation and violence.

These communists who love to sound so altruistic are the same monsters who murder old men, attack lone elderly women in wheel chairs or simply trying to bring home a tiny sack of groceries. These are the same monsters who chant “Stop the Hate” and “Love Trumps Hate”, while in the next breath they curse and scream at their fellow Americans — they kick, spit on, beat and set fire to their fellow Americans.

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly… and today – most of it is UGLY!

Antifa and Muslim Groups Plan to ‘Police Minneapolis Under Muslim Rule’
It would have sounded farfetched just weeks ago. It doesn’t anymore.

“What you’re looking at, in my humble opinion, is communism moving into Minneapolis and St. Paul.” And not just Communism, but the Leftist/Islamic alliance. Green asserted that Antifa and Muslim organizations plan to “police Minneapolis under Muslim rule.” Those who scoff at such a notion simply aren’t paying attention to recent developments… (Continue to full article)

‘Systemic Racism’ at Planned Parenthood
“We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” — Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in a 1939 letter… (Continue to full article)

Cancelling America
It seems to me that the real racism is removing pictures of black people from packaging. Does this mean we can only have images of white people on packaging? Wouldn’t that be racist? How can we reconcile the woke idea that images of blacks are racist with the long-time push to have more black models and more black actors on TV? Would it be racist to have an image of an Asian on a package? How did Eskimo, an indigenous people inhabiting cold regions and a language, become racist?… (Continue to full article)

United Nations sides with Antifa terrorists, setting stage for UN invasion of America when Antifa backlash begins
In the UN’s view, Antifa is just like any other protest group that gathers peacefully to air grievances. And President Trump is getting in the way of this peaceful expression of Antifa’s First Amendment rights by classifying violent and destructive behavior as terrorism.

“International human rights law protects the right to freedom of expression, association and peaceful assembly,” says Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms while countering terrorism… (Continue to full article)

A Black Man’s Letter to Black Lives Matter
I am tired of our Nation cowering, appeasing, acquiescing, and surrendering to this absurd organization calling itself Black Lives Matter (BLM)

That equality of opportunity has enabled me to attain immense success for myself and set the conditions for the success of my two daughters. My wife Angela, an accomplished former marketing professor and financial adviser, and I now teach our daughters about the perils of equality of outcomes, and those who cleverly disguise that intent within the cries of social justice.

With this being stated, I am tired of our Nation cowering, appeasing, acquiescing, and surrendering to this absurd organization calling itself Black Lives Matter (BLM). There is nothing true or sincere about this ideologically aligned progressive socialist, cultural Marxist organization…. (Continue to full article)

SILENCED: We Live in a Time When Our “Opinions Qualify as Crimes”
Currently, we’re living in an upside-down and backward world where the minority of people hold all the microphones, successfully shouting over a potential majority of people who don’t like the way things are going.

I truly believe that most Americans don’t hate their neighbors, don’t indulge in cruelty for the sake of cruelty, don’t indulge in cruel behavior toward those of other races than their own, and just want to live their lives with what happiness they can find. This is not to say that racism does not exist – it does and I’ve seen it in action. It also isn’t to say that there aren’t extremists who wallow in hatred – there are and on all fringes of the political spectrum.

The trouble happens when one of those fringes tries to silence everybody else. And it’s working … (Continue to full article)

Dwyer: Protesting the Past

Today’s protesters protest by-gone times when slavery was legal and was considered, by many otherwise normal people, socially desirable and morally acceptable. They also protest the times of racism and racial discrimination that came after the slavery was abolished in the US. Those times are gone.

America, in order to make-up for the past suffering of the slaves, has bestowed on blacks many privileges and entitlements that are not available to all other Americans, affirmative action and protection from the so-called disparate impact being examples of. We, the American whites, have become – as a racial group – the most racial people on Earth. In predominantly white America, both implicit and explicit discrimination against blacks in admissions, hiring, retention, and promotion has been made illegal. Even vague expressions of perceived anti-black racism, like displaying a rope that some may consider a noose, are being vigorously investigated by the law enforcement and – if the evidence warrants it – punished. A privately-made statement, like “All Lives Matter“, that could be interpreted by some as racially disparaging or critical of blacks can easily end the professional career of the speaker, particularly if the speaker is white.

Defund America-Hating Universities

“They are the root of the virulent anti-Americanism” that is causing mayhem nationwide.

Amidst the current climate of violence, looting, arson, and the destruction of historical artifacts, cries of “defund the police!” have reached fever pitch. Columnist Peter Wood has a far better idea. “Now is the moment to defund the colleges,” he writes. “We should defund them because they are the root of the virulent anti-Americanism that feeds the riots, the looting and the learned helplessness that afflict the country.” Continue reading

Violent Mob Movement is Run by ‘Trained Marxists

Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi

Patrisse Cullors is credited as the co-founder of Black Lives Matter (BLM), confirmed during a recent appearance with The Real News that the movement was conceived by “trained Marxists” pushing an agenda of Communist Revolution. “We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and BLM co-founder, Alicia Garza, in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists,” Cullors said. “We are super versed on all sorts of ideological theories, and I think that what we really try to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” she added.

The Demise continues… with tears of sorrow

I never in my lifetime thought I would see this day come. The day our beautiful Lady Fame was removed from her pedestal in Salisbury, NC. And shuffled off to a unkept cemetery on the rough side of town. She stood proud in one place for for 106 years.

As a small child and even as an adult I was and still am mesmerized by this beautiful angel holding a fallen soldier, and I personally know that many true fellow locals of Salisbury feel the same way.

I do not see it with the hatred so many other do. Continue reading

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.

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.

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.

Atlanta Police have released bodycam and dashcam footage showing the moments leading to the fatal shooting of Rayshard Brooks in a Wendy’s parking lot.

The shooting happened late Friday night at the fast food restaurant on University Avenue.

This is the first 42-minutes of the 1 hour, 23 minute video from the body cam of Officer Devin Brosnan. The name of a person not involved in this incident has been removed from the audio track. The rest is unedited.

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

We’re Not All In This Together

We’re All In This Together,” the sappy title of one of several bad songs, has become the Ministry of Information slogan of the pandemic. You hear it while shopping for groceries at the supermarket, see it on billboards that tell you to social distance your way off the street, and in every single ad on TV.

And then, after months of being locked indoors and that we were out to kill grandma if we left the house, the same media lauded massive numbers of rioters crowding together to curse the cops.

The political fiction of the pandemic died once its administrators found a shiny new fascist object… Continue reading

Police Reform or Blacks’ Reform?

Many blacks often exhibit asocial behavior that is immensely incompatible with the ethical and legal standards on which our Republic has been built. We have seen many examples of such behavior since proliferation of digital technology made taking and distributing of live videos readily available to average people. They include: rioting, looting, vandalism, destruction, and attacks on law enforcement, just to name a few.

Not that all or a majority of blacks engage in this kind of asocial behavior, or that blacks are the only ones who do it, but many seem to possess a natural propensity to resort to it when faced with reality of which they disapprove. Some will resist a temptation of turning asocial and some, fortunately, will not, but the fact is that they as a group show much less self-restraint in this respect than average Americans do. This creates a serious problem for our national unity and stability of our Republic. It would be irrational, and even dangerous, to ignore it. Continue reading

Rolling Stone Editor Unloads On Media, Says ‘The American Left Has Lost Its Mind

Rolling Stone magazine is a liberal rag, and editor Matt Taibbi is unquestionably a liberal. And yet, by some miracle, Taibbi has seen the light and isn’t afraid to point out what is so clearly obvious to conservatives. “It feels liberating to say after years of tiptoeing around the fact, but the American left has lost its mind,” Taibbi wrote. “It’s become a cowardly mob of upper-class social media addicts, Twitter Robespierres who move from discipline to discipline torching reputations and jobs with breathtaking casualness.” Continue reading

Darkness Falls…

The collapse of the rule of law across the country, intensified by Antifa radicals, is terrifying.

Out of the Fog… Into the Darkness

Savagery is spreading with lightning speed across the United States, with murderous assaults on police officers and civilians and the ecstatic annihilation of businesses and symbols of the state. Welcome to a real civilization-destroying pandemic, one that makes the recent saccharine exhortations to “stay safe” and the deployment of police officers to enforce outdoor mask-wearing seem like decadent bagatelles.

This particular form of viral chaos was inevitable, given the failure of Minneapolis’s leaders to quell the city’s growing mayhem. The violence began on Tuesday, May 26, the day after the horrifying arrest and subsequent death of George Floyd. On the night of Thursday, May 28, Minneapolis mayor Jacob Frey ordered the city’s Third Police Precinct evacuated as the forces of hatred, distinct from legitimate forms of protest, descended upon it for a third day in a row. The building was promptly torched, sending a powerful sign that society would not defend its most fundamental institutions of law and order. Continue reading

The Morality of Insurrection

This is a struggle between good and evil, and that there no longer exists a middle ground on which the two sides can meet. We are long past that…

Among the more disturbing images to come out of the recent street violence following the killing of George Floyd are those of police officers and white civilians kneeling “in solidarity” with the protesters.

If any of those Americans, black or white, who are protesting the killing of George Floyd are acting in good faith and not in the furtherance of a Leftist agenda, then they are either uninformed or they are being manipulated. Continue reading
