Repost 2010: The Three Degrees - When Will I See You Again

Goodness, do I remember this song from Angeles City, PI '74-'75 during a few months receiving cobalt treatment at the Makati Medical Center in Manila and wonder where Nanette of 275 Laguna Street, Angeles City is now? The most beautiful girl ever.

A Sacrifice for His People: The Imprisonment of Jefferson Davis

 jefferson davis colorized
When Jefferson Davis walked out of that courtroom in Richmond at last a free man after two years of torment, thousands of people, black and white, lined the streets with heads uncovered, in respectful silence. And so he remains in the heart of all true Southerners as the symbol of a righteous cause.

In 1866 Margaret Junkin Preston of Lexington, Virginia, a sister-in-law of Stonewall Jackson, wrote a poem she called “Regulus.” Regulus was a Roman hero who was tortured by the Carthaginians but never yielded his honour or his patriotism.

Her verse, which did not mention Jefferson Davis by name, was a reflection on the imprisonment of President Davis—a tribute to Davis’s nobility and patriotism under suffering and an indictment of the viciousness of his captors. Indeed, our President’s lowest point in fortune was also his finest hour. In the horrors of defeat and conquest after a sacrifice that has few equals in history, the internal conflicts of the Confederacy slipped into the background for most Southerners. Jeff Davis, brave and unyielding under torment, become a revered symbol for his people, and would remain so ever after.

Of course, it will surprise all the brilliant scholars conducting that other tax-supported meeting here in town, that Southerners like Mrs. Preston were well-versed in the classics. Among the tortures inflicted on Regulus by Rome’s worst enemies, the Carthaginians, was removal of the eyelids. She compares this to the Yankees shining a light in Jeff Davis’s eyes 24 hours a day.

President Trump Proposes ZERO Tariffs, ZERO Barriers, and ZERO Subsidies at G7 Summit

This ought to push the globalists back on their heels.

President Trump on Saturday challenged G7 leaders to make the G7 a tariff free and subsidy free zone.


“We’re the piggy bank that everybody is robbing,” Trump said. “And that ends.”

President Trump announced the proposal during his press conference Saturday morning before leaving early for his meeting next week in Singapore.

Plan to diversify elite NYC schools draws fire from Asians

Via Billy

A plan to diversify New York City's most elite public high schools is drawing fire from Asian-Americans, the minority group that dominates the schools.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced last weekend that he wants to scrap the test that governs admission to eight so-called specialized high schools including Stuyvesant High School and the Bronx High School of Science.

He called the test "a roadblock to justice, progress and academic excellence."

Fewer than 10 percent of students who score well enough to gain admission to the schools are black or Latino. Sixty-two percent are Asian.

The head of the Coalition of Asian-Americans for Civil Rights says scrapping the test would cause "chaos in the Asian-American community."

"A Hero In The Family"

I recently received this newspaper clipping from Macon County Tennessee from 1944. It concerns my 1st cousin, Pfc. Jasper T. Smith.

Jay as he was known was the eldest son of my mother's oldest Sister. As my mother was the youngest of ten children, her oldest sister was married and having children of her own by the time she was born.

Although Jay was technically her nephew they were so close in age that they we're in the same classes in school and grew up as virtual brother and sister.

I grew up hearing stories about him from my mother and members of her family but never knew the full circumstances of his death.

Geert Wilders Demands the Release of Tommy Robinson at Massive London Rally

As TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks previously reported, UK activist Tommy Robinson was arrested on May 25th for suspicion of breaching the peace while livestreaming to report on the trial of a child grooming gang and will now have to serve a prior 13 month suspended sentence.
Friends and supporters of Robinson, 35, are asserting that his notoriety and stance on Islam places his life in great danger in prison.

Articles about the arrest and subsequent imprisonment of Tommy Robinson were rapidly scrubbed from the internet after the British government put restrictions in place banning any reporting on the matter.

Steve Hilton: Trump’s criticism of G-7 is ‘unprecedented’ scream the elite -- That’s the whole point of Trump!

You know you’re getting somewhere when your opponents are all attacking you in the same way.

So President Trump should feel a strong sense of satisfaction with a job well done after leaving the slightly pointless Group of Seven (G-7) summit in Canada on Saturday for another likely far more consequential summit in Singapore with North Korea dictator Kim Jong Un.

The U.S. president’s critics are all using identical language in their denunciations of his policy positions.

"Robert Mueller has done more damage during his 12 years as FBI Director than... probably all the directors put together."

Rep Louie Gohmert (R-TX) appeared on Fox & Friends Saturday to discuss the new amendment that just passed the House calling for an audit of Mueller’s multi-million dollar witch hunt.


Rep. Gohmert said not only is Mueller wasting millions of taxpayer dollars, he’s covering up his own involvement in the Uranium One scandal while trying to have a coup against the President.
Gohmert is one of the few members of Congress speaking the truth about Mueller’s attempted coup and cover up of past crimes.

The Odyssey of Echo Company: The 1968 Tet Offensive and the Epic Battle to Survive the Vietnam War

Via Jonathan

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Tet Offensive, in which the North Vietnamese orchestrated a massive coordinated attack throughout South Vietnam.  A book out in paperback on May 8, entitled The Odyssey of Echo Company: The 1968 Tet Offensive and the Epic Battle to Survive the Vietnam War, takes readers on the journey of Stan Parker.  Americans need to be reminded of soldiers like Parker who fought patriotically for this country.

While in Afghanistan, researching another book, Horse Soldiers, Doug Stanton met Sergeant Major Stan Parker, one of the U.S. Army's longest serving soldiers.  Parker convinced him to write a book about the stories of the men he served with in Vietnam.  Like many in Echo Company, a Recon Company in the 101st Airborne Division, Parker enlisted to fight for his country against the evils of communism.  They arrived in mid-December 1967 in Vietnam just prior to Tet.  Parker speaks to Stanton about the unending list of horrors, losses, and miseries, not just overseas, but also on the home front, that he and his peers endured.

A Weapon Far More Important Than The AR-15

Via John

Technology continues to advance at an unprecedented rate, and the technology of weaponry is no different. The science fiction of ten or twenty years ago is now becoming a reality. Killer robots are on the rise. And no, I’m not joking (as you will see below). There has been a loud debate in recent months over citizens’ rights to own AR-15s. Gun rights advocates are strongly in favor of citizens having the right to own AR-15s and so am I. The government-backed anti-gun groups are against this right for obvious reasons. However, to compensate for rapidly evolving technology, citizens will need to adopt a new weapon soon.

A smoking gun by any other name

Via David

A new term, with attendant implications, may soon enter the political vocabulary: Document 34.  It's the evidence that shows what James Comey originally wrote about Hillary Clinton's handling of classified documents and how it was changed by staffers (presumably Peter Strzok).

Hence, a Document 34 emerges as a smoking gun proving conspiracy and cover-up of a serious federal crime.  This term may in fact replace "smoking gun," which dates back at least to Watergate, as the designation for a decisive piece of evidence.

Document 34 in this case makes a difference of up to ten years in prison compared to what Hillary could have faced without the wording change from "gross negligence" to "extremely careless" handling of classified documents.

Dems Put Finishing Touches on One-Party 'Surveillance Superstate'

Via John


Should divide the party even more.

The Democratic Party has made a strategic decision to bypass candidates from its progressive wing and recruit former members of the military and intelligence agencies to compete with Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. The shift away from liberal politicians to center-right government agents and military personnel is part of a broader plan to rebuild the party so it better serves the interests of its core constituents, Wall Street, big business, and the foreign policy establishment. 

Democrat leaders want to eliminate left-leaning candidates who think the party should promote issues that are important to working people and replace them with career bureaucrats who will be more responsive to the needs of business. The ultimate objective of this organization-remake is to create a center-right superparty comprised almost entirely of trusted allies from the national security state who can be depended on to implement the regressive policies required by their wealthy contributors. Here’s more background from Patrick Martin at the World Socialist Web Site:

President Trump reportedly asked world leaders at the Group of Seven Summit on Friday to consider "no tariffs" at all amid growing tensions over the administration's trade moves.

Politico, citing officials who listened and took notes of the discussions, reported that Trump told assembled world leaders that “we should at least consider no tariffs, no barriers — scrapping all of it."

The newspaper reported that the idea was challenged Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is hosting the summit in Quebec.

American Pravda: When Stalin Almost Conquered Europe

Via Weaver


For many years I maintained far too many magazine subscriptions, more periodicals than I could possibly read or even skim, so most weeks they went straight into storage, with scarcely more than a glance at the cover. But every now and then, I might casually browse one of them, curious about what I had usually been missing.

Thus, in the summer of 2010, I happened to leaf through an issue of Chronicles, the small-circulation flagship organ of the marginalized paleoconservative movement, and soon began reading a blandly-titled book review. But the piece so astonished me that it immediately justified all the many years of subscription payments I had sent to that magazine.
