German POWs and Civil Rights

 

I have written here before about my beloved hometown of Tuskegee, Alabama.  Forgive me if you’ve read this before, but Tuskegee was unique among small rural Southern towns because of its large, well-educated, and fairly empowered Black population.  I wish I could find the reference source for this data, but years ago I read that the Black-to-White ratio in Tuskegee in 1960 was 11-to-1.  The principles established by the great American educator and philosopher Booker T. Washington at Tuskegee Institute were embedded in the Black population of Tuskegee, and although they obviously struggled with statewide Jim Crow laws, they were an established economic force in Tuskegee.  A devastating Black boycott of White-owned businesses in Tuskegee in the 1950’s concerning a gerrymandering issue (Gomillion v Lightfoot) guaranteed that Whites recognized the survival necessity of treating the Black population with dignity and cooperation.  To say that Whites thrived in Tuskegee by keeping Blacks suppressed and subdued is to be ridiculously naïve of the reality of the situation.  Anyone who approached business that way in Tuskegee would have starved.  It was truly an amazing symbiotic relationship between both communities for the time – well, for any time, really.  That’s why I get a little upset when I see blanket historical anecdotes related to the Civil Rights struggle that are just outright lies intended to rewrite history to fit a forced, false narrative.  For example, take the German POW situation in the South during World War II.

Real Memories of the Civil War (Sic)

 Family of Jack and Cindy Ross Bradsher, 1895, Marmaduke, Arkansas.

“At a time when liberty is under attack, decency under assault, the family is under siege, and life itself is threatened, the good will arise in truth; they will arise in truth with the very essence and substance of their lives; they will arise in truth though they face opposition by fierce subverters; they will arise in truth never shying from the Standard of Truth, never shirking from the Author of Truth.”

My mother, Wanda Bradsher Scruggs,  passed away in 2007 at the age of 91, but a few years before that she shared with me some memories of the Civil War and Reconstruction related to her by her grandparents, Jack and Cindy Ross Bradsher.   My mother was the daughter of the youngest of their seven sons, W. C. Bradsher. Jack and Cindy Bradsher also had four daughters.  Both the Bradsher and the Ross families were farmers whose parents had come to northeastern Arkansas in covered wagons in the late 1850’s.  The Bradsher family had come from North Carolina, and the Ross family had come from Kentucky.  Jack Bradsher, being a hard worker, very astute, and affable became a very successful farmer whose sons became successful community leaders in medicine, pharmacy, farming, business, education, and the ministry. Jack Brandisher’s farm was near Marmaduke, Arkansas, about 9 miles from Missouri and named for  Confederate General, John S. Marmaduke, who later became Governor of Missouri. Both my mother and father grew up in Paragould, Arkansas, a larger town about 12 miles south of Marmaduke.

Lockdown Madness

Via Cousin John

Dr. Sunetra Gupta opposed lockdown COVID-19

We’ve already seen enough collateral damage from statist interventions. And, we’ll be seeing serious lingering social, health, and economic impacts from these interventions for months, if not years, into the future. As it was true before, it remains true today: To end the pandemic and prevent unnecessary harm, the tyranny preferred by our burgeoning population of despots must be ended. Freedom is still the cure

Lockdowns have caused not only massive economic upheaval, but needless deaths.

Progressives promised frightened citizens that lockdowns were for their own good. This pernicious lie has caused not only massive economic upheaval, but needless deaths.

Probably few Americans have heard of Sunetra Gupta. As a brief summary, Dr. Gupta is one of the world’s leading epidemiologists and also an acclaimed novelist. She graduated from Princeton University in 1987 and earned her Ph.D. from Imperial College London in 1992. Today she is professor of theoretical epidemiology at Oxford University’s Department of Zoology. 

Again, for emphasis: She is one of the world’s leading epidemiologists. In 2009, she was awarded the Royal Society Rosalind Franklin Award in recognition of her scientific achievements. For those who do not recall Rosalind Franklin, she was a chemist and x-ray crystallographer whose work was instrumental to the effort to understand the structure of DNA.

Biden Signs Executive Order ‘To Make It Easier’ To Vote, Calls GOP Election Reform Efforts ‘An All-Out Assault’ On Voting Rights

 WASHINGTON, DC - MARCH 06: President Joe Biden speaks from the State Dining Room following the passage of the American Rescue Plan in the U.S. Senate at the White House on March 6, 2021 in Washington, DC. (Photo by Samuel Corum/Getty Images)

“Throughout its nearly 800 pages of complex and convoluted text, H.R. 1 imposes unworkable and invasive regulations on the ability of individual Americans and groups of citizens to discuss vital policy issues with elected officials or the public and to exercise constitutionally protected freedoms,” ADF said. “The bill intrudes upon the private financial decisions made by everyday citizens, subjecting them to harassment and intimidation simply for giving to causes they care about.”

President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Sunday in a move the White House said would expand voting access for Americans.

Biden announced the order on the anniversary of Bloody Sunday, commemorating the 1965 civil rights march from Selma, Alabama, to the state capital of Montgomery. During the march, the protesters were violently attacked.

A Look Into Our Future

 

Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!” has come down to us as the lofty rallying-cry of the French Revolution, but in Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities it is rendered as “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity or Death!” and we all know of the guillotine and its work. Are we seeing the same threat behind today’s Progressives, their Marxism, their Antifa, their Progressive Identity Politics, their Critical Race Theory, and their Black Lives Matter?

Consider the work of God: for who can make that straight, which He hath made crooked? Ecclesiastes 7: 13

Scott Howard, in his book The Trans-gender Industrial Complex, says on pages 164-5:

The so-called Enlightenment made man the center of the universe, a premise no less ridiculous than the not-long-discarded geocentric theory. When man is the center of the universe, he is God – his own God – and his possibilities are limitless, or at least man perceives them that way. If Man is God, He is created in His own image – or any image He wants to create. We see this near-boundless arrogance embodied in the utopianism of Progress, an increasingly queer (double entendre intended) entropic Progress that is revealing itself as in actuality an accelerator of dissolution and decay. In the ultimate paradox, this hyper-individualistic/narcissistic utopia renders everyone a widget, a number, part of a data set in the architects’ network. Indeed, the word utopia is derived from the Greek ou-topos, meaning ‘no place’ or ‘nowhere.’ Is that not the essence of this globalized project – everywhere becomes nothing?

Ballots In Arizona’s Maricopa County Found Shredded and In Dumpster – Days Before Senate Audit To Begin

 

Piles of shredded ballots were located today in a dumpster in Maricopa County Arizona.  This find occurs only days before the Senate’s audit of the county’s 2020 election results is due to start.

For months the Board of Supervisors in Maricopa County have blocked and delayed any independent audit performed by the Arizona Senate of the County’s results in the 2020 Presidential election.  As we’ve reported previously, after being subpoenaed by the Arizona Senate and then suing the Senate to prevent a Senate audit of their 2020 election results, the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors (MCBOS) agreed to have an audit if they could pick the auditors. The two firms they picked they claimed were the only two who were certified by the governmental body the US Election Assistance Commission (EAC). However, we found that these firms were not certified at the time they were selected by the MCBOS:

Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced the deployment of the state’s National Guard and State Troopers to respond to the growing border crisis.

Governor Abbott announced Operation Lone Star “to combat the smuggling of people and drugs into Texas” on Saturday. The operation will integrate the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) with the National Guard, Abbott said. He is ordering the deployment of air, ground, marine, and tactical border security assets to high threat areas.

“The crisis at our southern border continues to escalate because of Biden Administration policies that refuse to secure the border and invite illegal immigration,” the governor said in a written statement Saturday evening. “Texas supports legal immigration but will not be an accomplice to the open border policies that cause, rather than prevent, a humanitarian crisis in our state and endanger the lives of Texans.

Bill Bryson is hands-down my favorite author. If you need a break from the daily cycle of....scratch that...the relentless onslaught of emotional outrage designed to prevent you from thinking, I can't think of anyone better to read. 

“Made In America” was published in 1995 and the main theme is how American English got the way it is – he interleaves history, personal commentary, and, unless you are a complete drip, he offers more than a few full-throated laughs. So how great was America, and what is it that we were trying to restore in terms of getting back to a productive, versus consumptive economy?

He offers these two examples:

Page 84:

“Between 1850 and 1900, America coal production rose from 14 million tons to over 100 million, steel output went from barely a million tons to over 25 million; paper production increased ninefold, pig iron production sevenfold, cottonseed oil by a factor of fourteen, copper wire by a factor of almost twenty. In 1850, America's 23 million people had a cumulative wealth of $7.1 billion. Fifty years later, the population had tripled to 76 million, but the wealth had increased thirteenfold to $94.3 billion. In 1894, the United States displaced Britain as the world's leading manufacturer. By 1914, it was the world's leading producer of coal, natural gas, oil, copper, iron ore, and silver, and its factories were producing more goods than those of Britain, Germany, and France together. Within thirty years of Garfield's death, one-fourth of all the world's wealth was in American hands. For the average American, progress was not, in the words of Henry Steel Commager, “a philosophical idea but a commonplace of experience...Nothing in all history had ever succeeded like America, and every American knew it.”

Arizona Border Sheriff On Border Crisis: Biden ‘Owns This,’ ‘We Had It Under Control’ Under Trump

Comment on Glen Campbell: Wiliam Tell Overture

  The Lone Ranger, played by Clayton Moore, right, and his Native American partner, Tonto, played by Jay Silverheels, pose with their trusty steeds.

Glen Campbell: Wiliam Tell Overture

I was a child of the Baby Boom. The 1950s were dominated by Westerns, whether they were Saturday morning Westerns intended for kids, or were "adult westerns" carried by the major networks at night. If memory serves me, at one point there were 30 different Western TV shows broadcast by the major networks over the course of the week. America was Western crazy.

As a young lad who was born in a little crossroads Southern town, nothing captured the imagination of my brothers and me than the Lone Ranger. Clayton Moore was a god-like figure to us. On Saturday morning, the sound of the first few notes of the "William Tell Overture" was sufficient to cause me and my brothers to run headlong to the living room and to slide to a halt in front of the TV as if we were sliding into home plate at Yankee Stadium. What followed on the screen enthralled us as we travelled back to "those thrilling days of yesteryear." (I understand that the “Lone Ranger” was an ABC program. This confuses me, because we couldn’t even pick up an ABC affiliate TV station.)

In 1956, my dad obtained a new job, and our family moved to "the big city." It was around 1958 when a major new suburban shopping center opened. As if it were a gift from heaven, Clayton Moore was to appear there to do the ribbon cutting. To a kid like me, this was bigger than the Second Coming.

My dad took me and my oldest brother (and possibly a younger brother) to the event. I remember nothing about it except for the fact that I was suddenly standing within two feet of Clayton Moore, himself. I was in the presence of greatness. It simply didn’t get any better than this.

There in front of me at eye-level was the heavy black holster and gun belt and, of course (gasp!), his silver bullets. I gazed up in absolute adoration of the masked man.

Suddenly, an idea flashed through my brain. I could actually touch the Lone Ranger. I could reach out and, with my index finger, touch his thigh. I could then tell everyone that I, little old me, had actually touched the Lone Ranger! I could forever bask in the reflected glory of the Lone Ranger and be admired and envied by all of my friends.

But then, reality set in. Someone might see me do this, most likely my dad, but, horrors, possibly the Lone Ranger, himself. A rebuke might follow.

So, I lost my nerve and did nothing.

Who knows how my life might have changed if I had chosen a different fork in the road? If only I had summoned the courage to touch the Lone Ranger, might I have entered the pantheon of heroes who, in some small way shared his glory? Would I have captured the evil Butch Cavendish? Commanded a division in Desert Storm? Found a cure for cancer? Discovered time travel?

It will be one of the great mysteries of life, and I will never know. 😊

In any event, here’s to you, Clayton Moore, and those fond boyhood memories. “Hi-Yo, Silver! Away!”

The War Through Women’s Eyes, Part II

Cornelia Peake Mcdonald (Author of A Woman's Civil War)

 "The next day Mrs. McDonald went into Winchester to aid in caring for the wounded. She wrote: "I wanted to be useful, and tried my best, but at the sight of one face that the surgeon uncovered, telling me that it must be washed, I thought I should faint. It was that of a Captain Jones of a Tennessee regiment. A ball had struck him on the side of the face, taking both eyes and the bridge of his nose. It was a frightful spectacle. I stood as the surgeon explained how, and why he might be saved, and the poor fellow not aware of the awful sight his eyeless face was, with the fearful wound still fresh and bleeding, joined in the talk, and, raising his hand put his finger on his left temple and said, 'Ah! if they had only struck me there, I should have troubled no one.' The surgeon asked me if I would wash his wound. . . ."

 Half of Republicans Believe President Trump Won Election, Poll Finds |  Politics | US News

 How can the federal government pass legislation that tells the states how to run their elections as Democrats proposed in H.R. 1? The Constitution is clear that states run their elections, just as it is clear that those changes to 2020 election processes without permission by state legislatures was unconstitutional. Or are Democrats betting that the Supreme Court will figure out how to punt about this also just as it refused to look at 2020 election violations or how Chief Justice Roberts justified Obamacare?

Why did Democrats cheat in the 2020 elections? For control. Saul Alinsky: the end justifies the means. This was their only chance to stop the America First movement of Trump, to take control of the Senate, to "cancel" those who oppose them, to rewrite history – just as all totalitarian governments do. So Democrats cheated.

The 2020 election was their only chance to stack the deck against average working Americans. Statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico to gain four more Democrat senators; pack the Supreme Court by expanding its size; pass election laws that guarantee more and more Democrats get elected; use stimulus money to bail out cities mismanaged by Democrats for the last 40 years; citizenship for illegal immigrants; more immigrants pouring over the border; increase government workers and families who then join SEIU and NEA and are dependent on government paychecks (now one-quarter of all American workers).

This is the U-85, the first U-boat sunk by the U.S. in WWII. It was sunk of Nags Head, NC on April 14, 1942 in action with the USS Roper with the loss of all hands.

It’s a sizzling July day at Kure Beach. Kids in bathing suits walk barefoot along Fort Fisher Boulevard; moms and dads lug lawn chairs to the sand...

But just down Atlantic Avenue, a narrow four-block-long road from Kure (pronounced “Cure-ee”) Beach Fishing Pier, an old seaside cottage bears witness to a time when things weren’t all sunshine and Cheerwine along the Carolina coast. It was here on a July night in 1943 that a German U-Boat supposedly surfaced and fired shots at a factory complex located a half-mile off shore. If the incident actually occurred—and many believe it didn’t—it would have been the only time the East Coast of the United States was attacked during the Second World War.

Dominion gets caught shorting GOP candidates

"It's just like every single one of the Republicans, when they did the hand count of the paper ballots, every one of them wound up with 300 more votes," the conservative reports. Gee, what a coincidence....:)🙄

A tea party leader says he is pleased that New Hampshire officials want to thoroughly investigate voting irregularities regarding Dominion-owned voting machines.

The hand recount recently conducted for a New Hampshire state representative race in which Democrat Kristi St. Laurent came within 24 votes of winning revealed that the four Dominion-owned voting machines in the town of Windham had shorted her Republican challenger by 99 votes. Three other Republicans there were also shorted 6% by the machines that were used in 85% of towns throughout the state.

"New Hampshire was like one of the biggest successes for Republicans in the whole 2020 election," recalls Tom Zawistowski, president of the tea party-affiliated We the People Convention. "They flipped the House and the Senate in New Hampshire and really had big gains, and yet Trump still lost in a very close race."

Power School Wisdom

 

During last week’s ice storm misery, I thought a lot about my southern upbringing and the good things I’ve received from my small, poor state with a jagged past and uncertain future. I received many of these gifts from loving parents, my scamp of a grandfather, and friends, but also from enthusiastic Sunday School folks, teachers, and pearls of Power School wisdom.

The true measure of wealth is not money; so, what have I received? Simple childhood lessons that can’t be duplicated or replaced, of courtesy and caring, of giving, and helping a neighbor in need, of one on one friendships with mismatched people, even if it’s just sharing a joke with a stranger. I learned these lessons sitting in a wobbly desk on the back row of  Mrs. Whoever’s classroom. The same people who taught me to read and write also taught me to be kind, honest, and not to give up because “practice makes perfect.” They explained the golden rule, common sense, the tradition of fair play, and quoted George Washington’s cherry tree remark.  Some say “I cannot tell a lie” is a myth, but the underlying importance of telling the truth still holds. They also told the story of Honest Abe Lincoln, even though I’d seen his childhood cabin in two difference locations. There was also the terror of “it rains on the just and the unjust” a mantra repeated by one of my teachers when a single student coughed out a wad of bubble gum and we all suffered. Not quite sure what she accomplished, but I’ve never forgotten the inequity.'

Top rated Arizona news anchor resigns: "I no longer want to do this job"

We have long been in a post-constitutional democracy, one that recognizes no individual rights, but simply who has the most votes, or, more accurately, the most ballots. It is as destructive to the United States as it was to France, minus the guillotines, for now.

Driving home the fact of the stolen election is pointless. Everyone knows it was stolen, especially those who benefitted from the steal. They also understand the value of keeping up the illusion of legitimacy. Equal to that value is the importance of never conceding that point. To put a cap on it, two states that were NOT swing states in the 2020 election have had some very interesting findings, Mississippi and New Hampshire.

Dispatches from the New Cold War (China)

 

Today’s characteristically luminous insights will be disordered and structurally horrifying, the sort of essay that would have sent my high-school English teacher into anaphylactic shock. In exculpation I plead laziness.

Recently I wrote a column on China’s digital yuan, now in late-stage testing. Bare-bones explanation: You download a digital-wallet app with which you can then send payments to anybody in the world who also has the app, no forms, bureaucracy, or bank account needed. OK, that’s cute, you say. Then, with my phenomenally perceptive, pincer-like grasp of the inescapable, I thought, it sounds scalable. If you can do it with thirty bucks (in yuan) for a hat from some store, why not with fifty million dollars (in yuan) for a shipment of oil from Iran? Sure, with more security and so on, but same mechanism.

Interestingly, such payments would be completely independent of, and opaque to, Washington. And independent of…SWIFT, eeeeeeek! Do you suppose China has thought of this?

Republicans fight Democrat push to compromise voting rules

 Republicans fight Democrat push to compromise voting rules

"I said this bill's title is a misnomer because I do not believe this bill has anything to do with the American people. It is a bill by the majority, for the majority, and is intended to entrench the majority in power for years to come.

"At each turn this bill is designed to rewrite the current rules of our elections in a way that benefits Democrats. It changes voting laws, election laws and campaign finance laws. It imposes from Washington, DC, a one-size-fits-all regulatory scheme on each state. And what's worse, it does this even though states have traditionally been allowed to generally run elections however they see fit."

Despite unanimous Republican opposition, House Democrats have passed a bill which would make radical changes in state voting laws.

Joe Biden Pentagon Nominee Colin Kahl: ‘Republicans the Party of Ethnic Cleansing’

WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 21: Former U.S. Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary for the Middle East Colin Kahl participates in a panel discussion about Iran's nuclear program sponsored by The National Iranian American Council in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill February 21, 2012 in Washington, DC. Kahl said …

Colin Kahl, nominated for Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, described Republicans as “the party of ethnic cleansing” on Twitter. His Senate confirmation hearing is set for Thursday.

“The GOP used to pride itself as a party that put values front and center in US foreign policy,” wrote Kahl in one October 2019 tweet. “Now—as they debase themselves at the alter of Trump—they are the party of ethnic cleansing.”
