Wyatt Earp: Brave, Courageous, And Bold
Any 1950’s kid who ever donned a cowboy hat and strapped on a six-shooter cap pistol remembers the theme song to The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. It was a TV show that ran (in glorious black and white) from 1955 to 1961. Starring the cool and handsome Hugh O’Brian, the series traced Earp’s career as a deputy town marshal in Ellsworth, Kansas, all the way to his time in Tombstone, Arizona, and the infamous gunfight at the O.K. Corral.
While not lasting as many years as either of them, Wyatt Earp premiered before both Gunsmoke and Cheyenne, providing three shoot-em-up TV westerns to “enrich” the minds of all those impressionable adolescents during the 1950s.

Barr on Radical Ideology in Schools: “The Greatest Threat that Religious Liberty Faces Today”
Trying to redeem himself, I guess.
“it may no longer be fair, practical or even constitutional to provide publicly funded education solely through the vehicle of state-funded schools.”
Former Attorney General Bill Barr criticized what he described as the public schools’ changes in ideology and questioned the constitutionality of funding such public institutions during a speech earlier this month.
The story: Barr made the comments at the Council for National Policy’s annual gathering, where he received an award from the Alliance Defending Freedom.

Joe Biden Ignores Rolling to Remember Motorcycle Rally
President Joe Biden will ignore the annual Rolling to Remember motorcycle rally in Washington, DC, on Memorial Day despite past presidents taking part in the day’s events.
Organizers for the rally told Breitbart News they had not been contacted by the White House about recognizing or participating in the annual event.
The White House did not respond to multiple requests for comment from Breitbart News.
The Rolling to Remember rally, previously known as Rolling Thunder, is now organized by AMVETS.

Crenshaw, Cotton Create Whistleblower Doc to Combat ‘Woke’ Efforts in U.S. Military: ‘We Are Going to Expose You’
Enough is enough. We won’t let our military fall to woke ideology. We have just launched a whistleblower webpage where you can submit your story. Your complaint will be legally protected, and go to my office and @SenTomCotton.https://t.co/4FstasB7Tm— Rep. Dan Crenshaw (@RepDanCrenshaw) May 28, 2021
Rep. Mike Rogers, the ranking GOP member on the House Armed Services Committee, has echoed, “My Republican colleagues and I hear regularly from active-duty and retired service members that even holding conservative values is now enough to endanger a service member’s military career.”
On Saturday, Arkansas GOP Sen. Tom Cotton and Texas GOP Rep. Dan Crenshaw, both military veterans, teamed up to release a whistleblower form for military members to fill out if they spot any “woke” training efforts.
Crenshaw tweeted, “Enough is enough. We won’t let our military fall to woke ideology. We have just launched a whistleblower webpage where you can submit your story. Your complaint will be legally protected, and go to my office and @SenTomCotton.”

I received another letter, so even though I answered it originally, I thought I should post again to make sure no one will be missed.
I’m emailing you because you responded to the retired Generals and
Admirals (Flag officers) open letter in support of our Constitution.
Unfortunately, we could not add your name to the letter due to our
extremely small volunteer staff size; we had to limit it to retired
Generals and Admirals.
So many wonderful patriots responded that we looked for a way outside of the small retired Flag letter team to accommodate your desire to sign a letter similar to the one the retired Flags signed.
Former Congressman and retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Allen West has taken up the mantle and is organizing a letter to encompass ALL retired military. He is on the Policy Board of the American Constitutional Rights Union, a non-profit that is helping to coordinate the letter. From my understanding, LTC West is looking forward to receiving a large groundswell of support from concerned patriotic citizens like you.
I’ve attached a copy of LTC (ret) West’s letter. Please let me know if you would like your name added and his team will get back to you.
Thanks and may God Bless America.

Open Letter from Retired U.S. Military: Support and Defend
As former members of the U.S. military who have proudly served our nation, we write to express our support for Constitutional freedom and liberty and our concern for our country as many powerful forces seek to bring Socialism and Marxism to our land.
When we agreed to serve our country, we pledged to support and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. During our active duty service, we did just that.Today, although no longer active duty warriors, we are still bound to this pledge and believe we are ethically obligated to protect our country. As such, we put our nation’s leadership on notice. We believe the hard left turn toward Socialism and Marxism endangers our citizens and the future of this great nation. Although a difficult step to take, we believe this step is necessary for us to continue to demonstrate the integrity and moral courage our oath requires.
The survival of our Nation and its historic values, liberty and freedom are at state.
• We are disgusted by the dismantling of the rule of law in our great country. We never thought we would see the return to Vietnam-style disdain for public service. Unfortunately, this disregard and disrespect is corrosive and will lead to dangerous situations for citizens and law enforcement. A revolving door for criminals and a two- tiered justice system that offers up different penalties based on the viewpoints of the accused must end.
• It disturbs us to see the erosion of fair and honest elections. Civilians doubt that our electoral system accurately reflects the will of the people. Current service men and women struggle to find clear instructions on how they can execute their own constitutional right to vote and doubt their ballots will be counted. We reject efforts by those who seek to avoid fair and honest elections by deeming commonsense voting measures “racist.” The gold standard in voting, recognized throughout the world, is in- person, with identification, yet politicians are seeking to end this in the U.S.
• We oppose the politicization and ideological purging of our military. The focus of our military should be on training, readiness, and defense of our Nation, not leftist cultural “wokeness”.
• We decry the assault on our constitutional rights through censorship of written and verbal expression and we point out the complicit arrangement between private corporations and those in power to present only one point of view. Never did we think we would see the day when our media resembled Pravda.
• Bureaucratic abuses that have led to business and school closures and excessive lockdowns should not be tolerated by the American people. We do not get our rightsfrom the CDC, the FDA or from private corporations. And, as such, we will not toleratSoviet-style internal passports or anything resembling the Chinese social credit system where citizens are monitored and controlled, whether that system be carried out by the government or by their cooperative partners in the private sector.
• We stand with Israel and call upon all Americans to continue with the Mideast peace initiatives, the “Abraham Accords” and oppose re-engaging in the Iran Nuclear Deal. Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons is not in the interest of freedom-loving individuals.We believe it is in the self interest of all Americans to oppose this deal.
• We must continue our efforts for energy independence. We believe it is in our nation’s best interest to reopen the Keystone Pipeline and focus on regaining U.S. jobs and protecting the national security interests provided by energy independence.
• The perforation of our southern border is a lifeline for terrorists, drug cartels and human traffickers. The current administration’s position on open borders and illegal immigrants places our nation at risk from a health, economic and safety perspective. As a sovereign nation we have a right and a duty to protect our borders.
• We oppose the establishment of cooperative relations with China as we believe the Chinese Communist Party is focused on global militaristic and technological domination. It is currently amassing weapons to stage a takeover of Taiwan. America is bound by the Sino-American Mutual Defense Treaty which protects Taiwan from invasion by the People’s Republic of China. Our cooperation with China is at odds with our signed alliances and is not in American self-interest. We must focus on preventing Chinese
expansionism and protect our nation from attacks on our infrastructure by securing our gas pipelines and electric grids from penetration. We call upon the American people to join us in opposing the advancement of socialism by holding public officials accountable in the public square and the voting booth. We must elect local, state, and federal candidates who will always act to defend our Constitutional Republic.
Memorializing our Confederate Dead - A Southern, Christian Tradition
Rev. John L. Girardeau, D. D.
Excerpt from the re-interment ceremony
Magnolia Cemetery in
Charleston, South Carolina
Confederate Memorial Day 10 May 1871
We have seen that in the complex constitution of our nature the religious element forms an integral part, and that provision is made for its exercise in the Divinely appointed institute of the Church. In contending against those influences which threaten to sap the foundations of every venerable institution, our slain brethren fought for their altars, as well as for their fire-sides and their political franchises. This is not an extravagant statement.
The spirit of the Christian Religion pervaded the armies of the Confederacy. The vast majority of our soldiers were its nominal adherents, and thousands of them were professors of the faith. Its influence was felt in almost every regiment. In the quiet of camp, during the march and on the eve of battle its sacred services imparted fortitude under hardship and heroic courage for the day of conflict. From the Commander-in-chief to the humblest private in the ranks a reverent respect was paid to its ministers and its ordinances.
We have seen Robert E. Lee, unattended by even a sergeant, go afoot through the mire to the soldiers’ gathering for worship, and sitting in the midst of them devoutly listen with them to the preaching of God’s Word, and mingle his prayers and praises with theirs. (Thomas J. “Stonewall”) Jackson was proverbially a man of prayer. He led his fiery and resistless columns into the tempest of battle with hand uplifted to heaven in token of dependence on God, and supplication for His blessing. It deserves to be mentioned that that great soldier before the breaking out of hostilities taught a humble Sabbath-School at Lexington, the pupils of which when his remains were taken there for burial followed them with every mark of affection to their last, quiet resting-place. I desire to record it, amidst the affecting solemnities of this funereal occasion, that during an extended experience as chaplain I never encountered a sick, wounded or dying Southern soldier who rejected the Christian faith, or treated its proffered consolations with contempt.
Let us then accept from them as in some sort martyrs for religion as well as for liberty the solemn obligation to maintain the Christianity which sustained them amid the privations of a soldier’s life and the anguish of a soldier’s death. Deo Vinidice
Special thanks to Dr. Ron Romburg for sharing this with us on this Memorial Day weekend.
Professor Admits Critical Race Theory Is To Build The ‘Church Of Marxism’ (VIDEO)
BREAKING: Villanova professor encourages adoption of Critical Race Theory due to its roots in Marxism pic.twitter.com/eNaTws6hAb— AntifaBook.com (@JackPosobiec) May 29, 2021
The left is not even trying to hide their Marxist agenda for Critical Race Theory anymore or their true target for their many decades of transformation of America; Christians. The Marxist left wants to destroy the options for the spiritual pursuit of Christians and those who agree with Christians about human free will.
“The Marxist foundation of Critical Race Theory is at base a spiritual concern. If you read Marx you know he was concerned with alienation. Specifically alienation of the species being. That element of humanity that provide creativity that is unique to the individual and defines us from animals,” Glenn Bracey told a zoom audience of educators on why he was appealing to them to adopt a controversial set of ideas called Critical Race theory.

We have heard time and time again from Democrats that these audits will have no legal consequences, but according to Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers, that may not be the case.

Explosive study claims to prove Chinese scientists created COVID
A bombshell new study claims to have proof that Chinese scientists created COVID-19 in a lab and then tried to reverse-engineer versions of the virus to make it look like it evolved naturally from bats.
British Professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen wrote they’ve had primary evidence “of retro-engineering in China” since last year, but were ignored by academics and major medical journals, The Daily Mail reported Saturday, citing the soon-to-be-published study.
The study concludes: “the likelihood of it being the result of natural processes is very small.” The virus is still killing 12,000 people a day around the world.

Lincoln’s Triumph over the States
Contrary to the following passage, there was no “constitutional riddle of the American federal system” to be discovered as it was crystal clear in the document, but certainly the Founders’ constitution was powerless against designing men and a lack of virtuous citizens. The Founders’ created no nation – but a federated system of sovereign States which had delegated specific powers for a federal agent to exercise, and strictly forbidding any others. The years 1789 through 1860 were filled with steady encroachments and usurpations by the federal agent of the States.
Observing and experiencing the faults of that constitution, the Southern Founders’ altered the former document to better serve those it was intended to govern and protect, with more chains and locks affixed to the agent.
As President Jefferson Davis departed Richmond in 1865 with federal armies at the gates, he mused: “The principle for which we contended is bound to reassert itself, though it may be at another time and in another form.” (Lost Cause, Pollard, pg. 749)

Truth, Bromides and Sales Talk
“It has hardly been grasped that the media have assumed a strange and dominant role in American politics. They have constituted for more than half a century an impermeable barrier between the voters and the candidates. Nothing has been presented without their prior censorship. Whatever this may be, it is not democracy.
Who are these people who proliferate in print, airwaves, and the internet, and who pass down imperious moral pronouncements without any known credentials to do so? Who voted for them? Who gave them such great and irresponsible power?
Merely by speaking the truth, by refusing to bow to their pretensions, [Donald] Trump has weakened their power. That is all it took. Simply speak the truth, and the “commentators” and “reporters” are revealed as the malicious ignoramuses that they are.
The Republicans have never had the courage to do that. They follow consultants, who warn them not to look unattractively mean-spirited. Don’t speak to the people, and for Heaven’s sake, don’t listen to them. Give them bromides. Anything else will upset the smooth pursuit of office, the only goal that has ever been sought by Republican “leaders” other than protecting and enhancing wealth.
A baker’s dozen of presidential wannabes all spouted identical sales talk. “Conservative” means nothing to them except as a popular advertising slogan.”

"The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the Revolution."
The Left is rampaging across our nation. Portland, Oregon, is burning, and many other cities face continuous looting, rioting and destruction. Literal miles of Minneapolis, Minnesota, have been destroyed. Democrat-run cities are hemorrhaging people – fleeing for the relative sanity of red states. And while the Antifa/Black Lives Matter mob is wreaking havoc, destroying businesses and neighborhoods, leaders in those communities have taken an inexplicable hands-off attitude, even to the point of restraining a police response. Following the accidental police shooting of Daunte White in a Minneapolis neighborhood and generalized unrest over the Derek Chauvin trial, Minneapolis police and National Guard troops were targeted in a drive-by shooting.

Comment on Pandemic exposes need for choice, brings surge in homeschooling
Home schooling is fine, however I DO NOT want school choice! The school where I grew up - a formerly decent, quiet place with good state ratings and a great atmosphere - is now overrun with feral outsiders. Reason being is that every morning there is a line of cars stretching from the entrance to the building, around a half mile down the street. These are people who do not live in the district, but have relatives who do and they use that address to get their "children" into the school. These people come from such wonderful places as the South Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Yonkers. The school board won't say anything because they're afraid of being labeled racists.
A friend of mine who's daughter currently attends our old HS tells me that out of the 60, or so kids that are allowed into the school, two, maybe three are serious students, the rest are no different than the element they left. They come into the school and instead of seeing a place for a fresh start, they bring the element they left behind and start drug rings, gangs and fights, especially the females.
No, separation is the only answer. The feral garbage MUST be made to remain where they are if we're to keep our remaining good schools in their current state. I am sick to death of these "educators" with the no child left behind crap. It's time to face facts that some species in our society will forever be nothing but a drag on the rest and that it's time to wall them off. Better yet, make sure no more of them get in in the first place.

Does the Bill of Rights Protect You Outside Your Home?
Stephen P. Halbrook is a Senior Fellow at the Independent Institute and author of the Independent books Gun Control in Nazi-Occupied France, Gun Control in the Third Reich, and The Founders’ Second Amendment.
In late April, the Supreme Court announced it would hear New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Corlett during its next term, which begins in October. With a ruling due by June 2022, it will be the court’s first major Second Amendment decision since 2010 and perhaps its most consequential.
In 1791, the Bill of Rights was created for the people against the government. The Bill of Rights—including the Second Amendment—has stood firm in the minds of the citizenry as a bulwark of American freedom.
The central issue in the latest case is whether the Second Amendment right to “bear arms” extends outside of the home. Sure, you can take your gun from your bedroom to the kitchen, but can you take your gun outside? If the answer is no, then we must ask: Do other constitutional freedoms—from the free exercise of religion to freedom of speech to rights against unreasonable searches and seizures to due process of law—also end as you exit your home?

The 19th Century Roots of Black Liberation Theology and Critical Race Theory
While Critical Race Theory and Black Liberation Theology are 20th century creations, the cultural and theological roots of these ideas find a clear path back to the mid 1800’s. Black Liberation Theology is credited principally to James H. Cone, who was a leftist African-American teacher and theologian at Union theological Seminary in New York, but in many ways, it just built on what had come before it. This school of thought sees the Christian mission as bringing justice to oppressed people through political activism and recasts Jesus as the political liberator of oppressed Black masses (Let Us Reason Ministries 2009). Black Liberation theology portrays Jesus as a poor black man who lived under the oppression of “rich white people”. The notion of “Blackness” is not merely a reference to skin color, but rather is a symbol of oppression that can be applied to all persons of color who have a history of oppression (Bradley 2010, 17-35). Cone further explains the core beliefs of Black Liberation Theology by saying,
“Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill Gods who do not belong to the black community. Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.” (West 2003)

A Day as a King
The frustration I heard in the voice of a four-tour force recon vet discharged after a mortar ended his service was undeniable. It was also evident that the insults hurled from a woke mayor in a Texas city had him in a state of calm, but determined resistance. He spoke of the BLM march through the city given a route that went past the “biker bar” section of town as evidence of the taunting taking place across the country by mayors and governors who are determined to get a violent reaction. “We’re not that stupid,” he said.
From someone who has seen his share of death and destruction in the chaotic villages of a war-torn nation, he knows what is being fomented against him and those like him. They want the conflict, just like they wanted to hang the “insurrection” tag on a peaceful protest in Washington D.C. on January 6th. Unlike the woke peaceful protests all summer that were embellished with flame, wrecked buildings and murder, the January 6th peaceful protest saw only instigators (probably infiltrators) breaking a window or two. There is no comparison between the occupation of federal court buildings, looting and burning by those released from jail the day before for the same mischief and a crowd being let into the capitol on the sixth only to further the insurrection narrative.

Saigon Police Lieutenant Colonel Nguyen Van Long marched to the *Marine Monument [seen partially above] in downtown Saigon, saluted, stated "It is finished," then committed suicide, a single shot to the head with a .45.
A trip to Saigon in 1970 by photographer Jerry Bosworth yielded a small cache of black-and-white images that vividly depict a city in flux.
Even though little is known about their author, the street photos are considerably high-quality for the era.

A Portrait of Loss, Growth and Adaptation in New Orleans' Vietnamese Community
When it comes to the Vietnamese diaspora in the United States, everyone knows about California’s huge community.
Some may be familiar with other communities in Houston or the Washington D.C. area, but you rarely hear about Vietnamese in New Orleans. This group, which numbers around 15,000 people, is the focal point of Things We Lost to the Water, the debut novel from Eric Nguyen, the editor-in-chief of online literary portal diaCRITICS.
It tells the multi-generational story of a Vietnamese family who flees southern Vietnam at the end of the war and arrives in New Orleans under sponsorship by the Catholic church, tracking their lives all the way through the catastrophic impact of Hurricane Katrina on the city.

White Brandeis Dean Kate Slater posts epic critical race theory rant: ‘I hate whiteness’
Via Προστάτης Καντονεζικός
A white Brandeis University administrator defended critical race theory in a social media post that included how she hated “whiteness.”
“Yes, all white people are racist in that all white people have been conditioned in a society where one’s racial identity determines life experiences/outcomes and whiteness is the norm and default,” Kate Slater, assistant dean of Graduate Student Affairs, posted on Instagram.
“That includes me!” added Slater, who describes herself on her personal website as a white anti-racist scholar and educator.

Luzerne county Pennsylvania has become the latest electorate to be plagued by errors from its Dominion voting machines.
This happens way too often, right?
This time the story comes out of a county in Pennsylvania, and the ‘error’ reported seems to conform to a pattern we know all too well.
According to local sources, Republican ballots were labeled as Democrat ballots.
Errors happen all the time, and this would be fine if the errors didn’t overwhelmingly favor one party.
We never hear about Dominion ‘errors’ affecting Democrats now do we?

Tom Cotton Mocks David Chipman’s Inability to Define ‘Assault Weapon’
During the May 26, 2021, Senate Judiciary Confirmation hearing, Sen. Tom Cotton (R) mocked ATF nominee David Chipman’s inability to define the term “assault weapon.”
Cotton asked Chipman, “You have called for an ‘assault weapons’ ban. I have a simple question for you, what is an ‘assault weapon?'”
Chipman responded, “An ‘assault weapon’ would be, in the context of the question you ask, whatever Congress defines it as.”
Cotton responded, “You’re asking us to ban ‘assault weapons’ and we have to write legislation. Can you tell me, what is an ‘assault weapon?’ How would you define it?”

Keep Asheville Wearied, Keep the Rebel Remnant Weird
“Keep Asheville weird” has been the unofficial motto for this Western North Carolina city for as long as I can recall. But the once-quaint Blue Ridge town has become wearied. It’s tired and worn out in its progressive predictability.
This is really nothing new to Dixians who have been paying attention.
“Asheville is a tumour on the face of North Carolina.”
“I call it Trasheville.”
“A town full of fudge packers, smelly hippies, and dip shits.”
“Asheville is the western version of the People’s Republic of Chapel Hill.”

Minneapolis: People Flee the “Defund the Police” Movement as Blacks Go Ape
"Saint George Floyd memorialized by a racist White House today"
"Saint George, the dead felon....what a role model for Joe Biden to memorialize......and why the connection between Floyd's death and white supremacy. 2 of the 4 charged in Floyd's death were NOT white and in Derek Chauvin's trial. there was not a single allegation that race played any part in Floyd's arrest or what transpired after Floyd resisted arrest and swallowed fatal quantities of two different drugs h e had planned to sell prior to being pinched."
Between 1997 and 2005, Floyd served eight jail terms on various charges, including drug possession, theft, and trespass. In 2007, Floyd faced charges for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon; according to investigators, he had entered an apartment by impersonating a water department worker and barging in with five other men, then held a pistol to a woman's stomach and searched for items to steal. Floyd was arrested three months later during a traffic stop and a 7-year-old victim of the robbery identified him from a photo array. In 2009, he was sentenced to five years in prison as part of a plea deal and was paroled in January 2013.

“Aggressive Abroad and Despotic at Home”
Seventy-six years ago, on May 8, 1945, at 2301 hours, Central European Time, World War II in Europe officially ended. Although the war would continue in the Pacific Theatre for several more months, May 8 marked the dramatic end of what was certainly the most horrific and disastrous land war in history. European culture was changed irrevocably. A civilization which had survived the devastation and depopulation of the Thirty Years War, the horrors of the French Revolution and Napoleon, and then the calamity of the Great War of 1914-1918, now witnessed a kind of final collapse, a coup de grace by which its politics, its history, its traditions, its very mode of viewing the world were undone.

The Real Jim Crow: How Northern Jim Crow Laws Moved South
“Jim Crow” was the stage name of New York actor Thomas D. Rice (1808-1860), who made a career of minstrel performances in blackface and thus popularized that form of entertainment. The name “Jim Crow” came from a popular 1832 song, “Jump Jim Crow,” written and sung by Rice and became a common term referring to African-Americans. Later it became a nick name for legislation restricting the rights of African-Americans. Blackface is not necessarily demeaning. Rice may have based his character on slave folk tales about a clever trickster. Al Jolson (1886-1950), a Russian Jewish immigrant, and the most popular and beloved American entertainer beginning with the movie The Jazz Singer in 1927 and lasting for many decades, was said to be the “king of blackface.” Jolson’s personal feelings and many of his songs were certainly sympathetic to African-Americans. What most people do not know is that Jim Crow laws first originated in Northern States. Northern Jim Crow Laws were the model for Southern States following the ruin, corruption, and oppression of Reconstruction. As author C. Vann Woodward has stated, “Jim Crow has had a strange career.”
In Aexis de Toqueville’s 1835 book, Democracy in America, he wrote that "the prejudice of race appears to be stronger in the States that have abolished slavery than in those where it still exists; and nowhere is it so intolerant as in those States where servitude has never been known."
