Bozell: Media Hatred of Trump ‘Will Cost Them Everything’

Brock's Mill House and Pond Trenton, NC

Picturesque mill house located on a 132 acres of pond which winds back into areas with abundant wildlife and indigenous plants. The mill was built in the 1700s and was used to generate electricity for the town of Trenton and was later used to grind corn. The grounds are open at all times to those who want to stop by and take a walk or get a picture of the cypress trees hanging full of moss and the geese swimming on the pond. Did you know that the Brock Mill dates back to the 1700’s when the first dam was constructed by hand? The millpond itself is fed by underground springs and by Crooked Run Creek with its headwaters in the Hofmann Forest. Only a small portion of the 133 acres is actually seen from Highway 58. The total area of the pond is 122 acres of water and 11 acres of land including small islands. The outlet for the pond drains the water into the Trent River southeast of the town of Trenton. The depth of the pond is 30 feet in several spots but the average depth is 12 feet.

According to research conducted by Stella Virginia Heritage, there was a Revolutionary War deed to a pond in this area around 1738 or 1739. In 1779 records show a sale of the property by Richard Sharp and Elizabeth Reynolds of Craven County to Lewis Bryan. In 1796 the property was sold again to Anthony Hatch and became known as Hatch’s Mill. During the next several years, ownership changed several times, however the name of Hatch’s Mill remained constant. In 1834, James McDaniel purchased the property and changed the name to McDaniel’s Mill . This name also remained through several other owners. In 1899 J.P. Brogden sold it to W. H. Hammond and Furnifold Brock. One year later, Mr. Brock bought out his partner’s share and deeded the property to his wife, Myrtle Foscue Brock. When Mr. Brock purchased the property, the gristmill was on site.

This dated back to 1861. Goods being produced at the mill included corn meal, grits and cracked corn for livestock or chicken feed. The sawmill operated on the site until the early 1940’s. In 1917, Mr. Brock installed a turbine generator to provide electricity for the town of Trenton. Late in the afternoon, the turbine was turned on making power for Trenton’s residents. At 10 pm the lights blinked twice signifying that the power would be cut off in fifteen minutes. This service continued until Tidewater Power Company purchased the franchise. As you can see the mill property has a rich history and it is a major focal point for Jones County. Because of this the county is looking to determine what to do with the property. As you ride by the mill think about what you would like to see on the property, a nature trail, canoe/kayak trail, a visitor’s center, fishing, a photo destiny, a working mill, etc. We need your help on this!

Virginians Against New England’s Accursed Practice

New England’s nefarious trade in West Indies molasses and slaves brought on the Navigation Acts from the British Crown, as well as the Revolution itself. After Rhode Island had become the center of the transatlantic trade in Africans by 1750, the traffic should be known simply as “New England’s Slave Trade.”

To demonstrate the anti-slavery resolve of Virginia’s representatives at the first Continental Congress meeting, they stated:

“The abolition of slavery is the great object of desire in those colonies, where it was unhappily introduced, in their infant state. But, previous to the enfranchisement of the slaves we have, it is necessary to exclude all future importations of slaves.”  The Great American Political Divide

Virginians Against New England’s Accursed Practice

“Though Brazil, by statute, prohibited the African slave trade in 1831, yet the traffic continued and in this trade citizens of the United States as ship owners, or crew, were engaged despite Federal statutes against such a practice. Henry A. Wise of Virginia, Consul at Rio [de] Janeiro, made frequent and earnest reports to the State Department calling the attention of the authorities to these violations. Under the date of February 18, 1845, he writes to the Secretary of State at Washington:

“I beseech, I implore the President of the United States to take a decided stand on this subject. You have no conception of the bold effrontery and the flagrant outrages of the African slave trade, and of the shameless manner in which its worst crimes are licensed here, and every patriot in our land would blush for our country did he know and see, as I do, how our citizens sail and sell our flag to the uses and abuses of that accursed practice.”

In his message to Congress, under date of December 4th, 1849, President [Zachary] Taylor writes:

“Your attention is earnestly invited to an amendment of our existing laws relating to the African slave trade with a view to the eventual suppression of that barbarous traffic. It is not to be denied that this trade is still in part carried on by means of vessels built in the United States and owned or navigated by some of our citizens.”

The foregoing recitals will serve to illustrate the uncompromising attitude of hostility on the part of leading Virginians toward the African slave trade. They sought by Federal statutes and concerted action with foreign nations to drive t pernicious traffic from the seas. They denounced the trade as inhuman, because it stimulated men to reduce free men to slavery and then entailed upon slaves the horrors and dangers of the “middle passage.”

They resolutely opposed any addition to the slave population of America because [they were] profoundly convinced that every such importation was fraught with menace to the social, economic and moral well-being of the nation and rendered more difficult the emancipation of those who had already been brought to her shores.”

The left is following Communism's playbook for revolution

Via Richard

 We Americans are currently in a civilizational state historians William Strauss and Neil Howe would call the "Third Turning": an unraveling. The so-called Left is making it happen, too, with conservatives enabling it by conserving yesterday's liberalism and being those nice guys who finish last.

In Marxist circles, this stage would be called "destabilization" – the second of a four-part process to subvert a society and seize control. The first, third and fourth stages are, respectively, "demoralization," "crisis" and "normalization."

Miss World America Strips Trump Supporter Kathy Zhu Of Title For Refusing To Wear Hijab, ‘Insensitive’ Posts

Zhu is a Chinese immigrant who moved to the United States at age five; she became popular in conservative circles for both her support for Donald Trump during the 2016 election and for fighting off students attempting to get her expelled from the University of Central Florida for refusing to try on a hijab — an event that allegedly helped get the conservative stripped of her beauty pageant accomplishments.
Twenty-year-old conservative activist and prominent Trump supporter Kathy Zhu was reportedly stripped of her Miss Michigan crown from the Miss World America Organization over past “insensitive” social media posts and her refusal to try on a hijab at a college event in 2018.
