Woke Poet Triggered by ‘Blackface’ Photo of Dusty Coal Miners Drinking Beer

                                               Hi, I'm a blithering idiot.
However, very few people seemed to agree with Thomas’ self-regarding view of the greater good. His op-ed was almost universally mocked on Twitter, where conservative commentators called it “incredibly stupid,” “dumb,” and “insane.”
Some readers were offended on behalf of coal miners, while others wondered if the article was a parody.

A racially conscious young writer has spoken out against a photograph of soot-covered miners that he recently saw in an Arizona restaurant, saying it reminded him of blackface.

In an op-ed about the harrowing experience published in The Arizona Republic, Rashaad Thomas said the black-and-white photo ― apparently from World War I-era United Kingdom ― made him feel threatened as an African-American.

VA unveils proposal to expand private health care for veterans

The proposal released by the Department of Veterans Affair could potentially make more than a million more veterans eligible for private health care than under current rules.

“Most Americans can already choose the health care providers that they trust, and President Trump promised that veterans would be able to do the same,” VA Secretary Robert Wilkie said in a statement Wednesday. “With VA’s new access standards, the future of the VA health care system will lie in the hands of veterans — exactly where it should be.”

The proposal released Wednesday seeks to implement the VA Mission Act, which Congress passed in June and which Trump has touted as a signature legislative achievement.

The final rules are expected to be published this coming June.

This was a huge victory, but we must remain vigilant. Those who hate us and our heritage will not quit and we can not let up for one minute. This vote, like every other, was almost directly down party lines.

Two democrats broke ranks to protect our war memorials. There is a real and present danger that we could lose the Republican majority in the House of Delegates this November, which would mean that this bill would sail through next session. WE MUST BECOME POLITICALLY ACTIVE to prevent this.

Stay tuned for ways you can join the fight to save the Commonwealth, and in turn, our monuments and memorials.

Victory in battle is ours today, but the war rages. All glory to God. All honor to our Confederate ancestors

The Planned Erosion of Civil Liberties–then and now

Image result for Frank Key Howard fort mchenry

The firing on Fort Sumter gave Lincoln what he and other Yankee/Marxist radicals in the North wanted–and up-front reason to call for volunteers to mobilize and prepare to invade the South.

Many current “historians” seek to whitewash Lincoln for his usurpation of civil liberties and for the statist bent his administration took on. What they don’t realize is that the Lincoln administration started the push against civil liberties that we see going on even under Trump today. It was never reversed after Lincoln, but rather grew into the federal Leviathan we see in our own day.

Why Was Stone Arrested Instead of Being Asked to Surrender?

"You don't really care about Mr. Manafort's bank fraud -- what you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment."

If there was no legitimate reason for the arrest and handcuffing of this presumed innocent defendant, what was the illegitimate reason? The illegitimate purpose of the arrest was to intimidate the potential witness -- namely Stone -- into not invoking his constitutional right to remain silent, rather than to testify as a government witness.

As Judge T.S. Ellis, III, who presided over the Manafort trial observed: "You don't really care about Mr. Manafort's bank fraud – what you really care about is what information Mr. Manafort could give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump or lead to his prosecution or impeachment."

The ACLU has been absolutely silent in regard to the questionable tactics employed by Mueller. They, too, would have been up in arms had these tactics been employed against their favorite candidate and mine, Hillary Clinton. Their silence speaks volumes about their partisanship and lack of neutral standards of civil liberties.

Congress must act to prevent these abuses from recurring.

I can't believe it! :) Bloomberg Blasts Cortez, Warren and Harris: Warns Against Socialism

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg unleashed on socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and those embracing socialism instead of capitalism.

"You can’t ask people affected by the transition to a green economy to pay more unless you deliver economic benefits in the form of good jobs, and better infrastructure, that they will feel in their lives and in their communities," Bloomberg said. "You have to help all workers affected by the shift from fossil fuels to clean energy and it just can’t be an afterthought, it has to be a concrete plan. It has to be a central part of any environmental plan or it will fail."

Two bits of news came out yesterday that confirm what I suspected about the Democrat Party.

Failure is a resume-enhancer.

First up, losing Socialist Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum.

Not only did Gillum lose to Ron DeSantis, he is also under an ethics investigation for accepting gifts while serving as Mayor of Tallahassee.

Judge Orders Planned Parenthood to Answer Questions About Fetal Tissue Business (Warning: Hands and feet of a 9-week-old child)

Four California Planned Parenthood affiliates have been ordered by a Federal Magistrate Judge to answer written questions related to hard costs associated with their fetal tissue trade.

Federal Magistrate Donna M. Ryu ordered the Planned Parenthood affiliates on January 24, 2019, to give an explanation of their denial that the amount of money they received on a per-specimen basis did not exceed their hard costs.  Planned Parenthood was further ordered to produce the written response within seven days.

Federal law prohibits the sale of aborted baby body parts “for valuable consideration,” but allows for reimbursement of hard costs incurred by the abortion businesses.

Planned Parenthood affiliates involved in the trade of aborted baby tissues and organs were:


Bracken: Covington Gives a Glimpse of Civil War Two

During the attempted electronic lynching of the Covington Catholic high school boys on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, the mask hiding the Left’s genocidal rage slipped and was momentarily visible. The reality of the confrontation was inverted 180 degrees by the duplicitous mainstream media so that a smiling white teenager was made to face the wrath of an Orwellian two-minute hate that stretched on for days, even after the factual record was corrected. Accelerated by social media, the virtual lynch mob called for, among other horrors, MAGA-hat-wearing teenage boys to be fed headfirst into wood chippers, or for them to be locked en-masse into their school and the school to be burned to the ground.

This hurricane of socially sanctioned racial fury did not arise spontaneously, but was the result of deliberate cultivation over the past few decades by the political Left, academia, the mainstream media, and the Hollywood entertainment elite. Entire books could be written laying out the many already familiar examples of the Left encouraging racial animosity against whites, but that is not my goal in writing this piece.

The Devil Hates Mockery

 A review of Snowflake Buddies: ABC Leftism for Kids (Shotwell, 2018) by Lewis Liberman It is said that the one thing Satan cannot stand is mockery. The primal sin is pride, and a swollen ego can handle intellectual assaults; what evil cannot handle is someone making fun of it. Contemporary Leftism is an evil system, for it prides itself in transcending natural human limitations by force of will. Human nature is denied, and human nature is considered by Leftists to be infinitely malleable. Over time, this ideology pushes Leftism into more and more absurd positions, to the point that the only proper response is mockery.
