Sindey Lanier

 sidney lanier

BECAUSE I believe that Sidney Lanier was much more than a clever artisan in rhyme and metre; because he will, I think, take his final rank with the first princes of American song, I am glad to provide this slight memorial. There is sufficient material in his letters for an extremely interesting biography, which could be properly prepared only by his wife. These pages can give but a sketch of his life and work.

Sidney Lanier was born at Macon, Ga., on the third of February, 1842. His earliest known ancestor of the name was Jerome Lanier, a Huguenot refugee, who was attached to the court of Queen Elizabeth, very likely as a musical composer; and whose son, Nicholas, was in high favor with James I. and Charles I., as director of music, painter, and political envoy; and whose grandson, Nicholas, held a similar position in the court of Charles II. A portrait of the elder Nicholas Lanier, by his friend Van Dyck, was sold, with other pictures belonging to Charles I., after his execution. The younger Nicholas was the first Marshal, or presiding officer, of the Society of Musicians, incorporated at the Restoration, “for the improvement of the science and the interest of its professors;” and it is remarkable that four others of the name of Lanier were among the few incorporators, one of them, John Lanier, very likely father of the Sir John Lanier who fought as Major-General at the Battle of the Boyne, and fell gloriously at Steinkirk along with the brave Douglas.

Some folks who have read Donnie Kennedy’s and my book Lincoln’s Marxists have intimated that we were blowing a lot of hot air when it came to the Forty-Eighters we wrote about–those socialist/communist revolutionaries from Europe that came over here after their revolts failed in Europe in 1848-49. After all, it was something they’d never read about in their “history” books, and it went against their grain to read what we said about their secular deity the Great Socialist er, sorry, I meant the Great Emancipator.

1968 Dodge Hemi Dart by Mr. 4 Speed Herb McCandless

 My dream barn find.:)  No window regulators to save weight.

They called him ‘Mr. Four Speed,’ and for good reason. Memphis drag racer Herb McCandless was known for his ability to jam gears and win races. This special 426 Hemi-powered Dart, built by Hurst under contract to Dodge in the spring of ’68, is actually the first Dodge he would ever campaign. McCandless achieved great success in the South and Midwest in 1968 and 1969, running primarily in AHRA’s heads-up Super Stock circuit, and won 15 of 18 events.

At the end of that effort in early 1970, McCandless sold the Dodge and moved his family to Burlington, North Carolina; he had just become a driver on the legendary Sox & Martin team and would win the first-ever Pro Stock crown at the Indy Nationals that summer. These Darts, of course, were very special. Assembled around partially completed 383 GTS models at a special Hurst production facility in Detroit, the cars were modified solely for racing—426 cross-ram Hemi engine, heavy-duty driveline parts, lightweight body panels, and a disclaimer from Chrysler that they were not street legal.

Pope Recommends Europe Should Embrace Islamic Invasion

Via Frank

 During a papal visit to Istanbul in 2014, the Grand Mufti displayed a Koran to the pope. Francis has said that true Islam is not violent and the  Koran and the Bible are the same.

The Pope has always been a little lefty on the migrant invasion topic, Communist, but he reached new levels of illogic during recent remarks.

How can I top a Daily Mail headline? From March 4:
The Pope says ‘it is a social fact’ that Europe is seeing an ‘Arab invasion’ — and it’s a GOOD thing
Pope Francis described the influx of migrants into Europe as an ‘Arab invasion’ before explaining that the new arrivals will enhance Europe for the better.
The pontiff was giving a speech to an audience of French Christians when he reflected on Europe’s history of migration and the positive impact it has had on its culture today.
He described the migrant crisis as ‘a social fact’ before explaining the change will help Europe in the future by making it more multi-cultural, according to Bloomberg.

Why is Chelsea Clinton Wearing an Inverted Christian Cross?

More proof, if any were needed, that one of America’s foremost ruling families are not the avowed “Christians” they profess to be.
Bill Clinton’s displays of the so-called el-Diablo hand sign, or satanic salute, raised questions about his spiritual orientation some time ago. These more recent photos of his daughter, Chelsea, raise even more.
An inverted Christian cross is seen as a symbolic representation of the antithesis of the faith. So why is former U.S. president Bill Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, wearing an inverted Christian cross?
Chelsea Clinton has been pictured more than once with an inverted Christian cross around her neck so this is not an accident. She’s obviously flaunting the symbol for all those with eyes to see.

3 CEO’s & A Dozen Congress Whores Walk Into A Bar

Via Michael


So, let’s do a simple thought exercise, shall we?

If I wanted to insure that a certain candidate had increased support among the people who are already fed up frustrated with my leadership, wouldn’t actively conspiring against that individual, with tech CEO’s, Senators, Representatives, & political/media hacks gurus be a great way to do just that?
Just imagine what happens to Trump’s support level when he goes on tv and tells his minions that Mitch McConnell (D-KY), Tim Cook (Apple), Elon Musk (Tesla/Space X), Paul Ryan (D-WI), Larry Page (Google Founder), Karl Rove (D-ICK), and Bill Kristol are all at a secret conclave with a dozen leaders from the house and senate, on a private resort(Sea Island, GA) conspiring on how to stop him.
“Bought-and-paid-for politicians are conspiring with their corporate overlords as we speak. This includes a man who refuses to unlock a phone in a terrorism case!” I can hear the soundbites already.

The RINO’s are so hopelessly, irrevocably out-of-touch that it’s hard to imagine how they got in the positions they’re in to begin with.

THE Queen has been hailed as a backer of Brexit tonight after details emerged of an extraordinary alleged bust-up between her and Nick Clegg over Europe.

Her Majesty let rip at the then Deputy PM during a lunch at Windsor Castle, The Sun has been told.

The 89-year-old monarch firmly told passionate pro-European Mr Clegg that she believed the EU was heading in the wrong direction.

Her stinging reprimand went on for “quite a while”, leaving other guests around the table stunned.

Trump Crushing GOP Field – Beating Hillary Clinton in New Florida Poll

Via Billy

Republican presidential primary Florida MyNews13

Leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has a commanding lead over his GOP rivals in a new Florida Decides poll by Central Florida cable outlets News 13 and News 9. Both channels are owned by Brighthouse.

Trump has 42% support of who those are likely to or have already voted early in person or by absentee ballot for the Sunshine state’s March 15 presidential primary.

Florida native Marco Rubio trails with 22% followed by Ted Cruz with 17%, John Kascih with 10%, and ‘other’ at 3%.

A further indicator of trouble for Rubio in the poll is the ‘undecided’ vote is only 5%.

Trump is also the only candidate of the top three Republicans to beat leading Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, 45% to 44%. However, all three head-to-head results were within the poll’s 2.3% margin of error.

Bernie and Hillary Support Late Term Abortion of Babies Up to 9 Months

Via Billy


In July 2015 Hillary Clinton defended late-term abortion.

** Late-term abortion is part of the official Democratic Party platform.

In late term abortions the fetus is rotated until it is facing feet downwards. The surgeon reaches into the uterus and pulls the fetus’ body, with the exception of its head, out of the woman’s body. Surgical scissors are inserted into the base of the fetal skull, and withdrawn. A suction tube is inserted and the fetus’ brains are removed through aspiration.

Back in June 2015 Club for Growth requested a $1 million donation.

Donald Trump refused the request.

The Club for Growth Action announced Monday it is spending about $2 million on ads in Illinois against GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

The ads, which will air on statewide broadcast and cable TV in Illinois and had previously aired in Iowa, attack Trump for having a liberal record and for his position on eminent domain.

Via comment by Quartermain on "'Money trail' from Terror-Sponsoring Countries lea...":

From the time I was able to vote, I voted Republican. Mom and Dad were Republicans and I was raised that way.

I'm 72, have mutual respect and influence with other seniors who in turn network with many others around the country.

I received your questionnaire and request for money and strongly agree with every question as I have since Obama became President. Unfortunately the one MISSING question "What have Republicans done for the American people?" We gave you a majority in the House and Senate and you FAILED TO LISTEN. Now you want MORE money.

You should be more concerned about our votes -- not our money. You're the ESTABLISHMENT which means you want is to save your jobs and line your pockets... Well guess what?  IT'S NOT GONNA HAPPEN THIS TIME! Shake in your boots because I'M FOR TRUMP and he hasn't asked for a dime...

You might think TRUMP SUPPORTERS are fools because Trump is on self destruction course but look beyond Washington and listen to the masses. No one has matched his achievements, especially New York. If you really want to know how the majority of people feel? And this applies to both Democrats and Republicans, consider this RACCOON STORY.

Shooting of Oregon occupier LaVoy Finicum justified - prosecutor

Via sauced07

 Shooting a person in the back is murder unless you're a cop. Does anyone have knowledge of the despicable cowards who shot him?

The Oregon State Trooper who shot and killed Robert 'LaVoy' Fincium, one of the leaders of the armed occupation of the Malheur Wildlife National Refuge, were cleared of any wrongdoing. 
Finicum was killed January 26 when a convoy headed from the refuge to a community meeting was met by FBI and state troopers.

Two troopers shot Finicum in the back a total of three times, one of which pierced his heart, the Oregonian reported. A prosecutor ruled the shooting was legally justified, noting that Oregon state law allows the use of deadly force when officers believe that a person is likely to seriously injure or kill someone else.
