Abundant Acreage Available: A Woman Can't Lose What She Never Possessed

Like many traditional-minded people of this era, I have become disenchanted with products of the modern movie industry which are mostly either filth, silliness, or formulaic pablum. To my fortunate surprise, I recently stumbled upon a gem of a movie from 2017 called Abundant Acreage Available. Written and directed by NC native Angus MacLachlan, the entire film takes place in the field and home of a small North Carolina tobacco farm. The uncluttered, serene setting is ideal for highlighting the film’s dialogue, thus putting intense focus on a simultaneously mundane and momentous episode impacting the lives of two families.

NC: House Committee Passes Purchase Permit Repeal

Thanks to Reps. Jay Adams, Hugh Blackwell, Keith Kidwell, and George Cleveland, today the NC House Judiciary 4 Committee passed H398, a full repeal of North Carolina’s Jim Crow-era pistol purchase permit (PPP) law – a law which not only allows some urban sheriffs to obstruct people from buying handguns for self-protection,

Not only are Republicans on board with repealing the racist law, but now the NC Sheriffs’ Association has joined them in supporting repeal. And who does that leave still supporting racist gun control? Democrats.

Paging Alexandre Solzhenitsyn


I have only touched on his seminal tome, The Gulag Archipelago, though it is on my list of to be read books, the stack of which is growing faster than my available time to read.  But his observation, above, echoes another fantastic quote:

Both have a similar theme: People who are convinced they are doing good will rationalize their evil deeds. So now our host has an essay, There Is No Time, in which he revisits his old blog:

DeSantis Blasts Woke Corporations: ‘Grow a Spine and Actually Stand Up’

                                  FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA - OCTOBER 07: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis announces that he wants to raise the minimum starting salary for teachers during a press conference held at Bayview Elementary School on October 07, 2019 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The Governor’s proposed 2020 budget recommendation will include a pay raise …

“But it’s really hypocrisy rooted in cowardice. These are executives who are scared to death of the left and the corporate media and so they always want to take the path of least resistance, and they think the path of least resistance is just to cave and to kind of give them what they want,” he continued.

 Leaders of “woke” corporations must “grow a spine” and “stop being sucked into genuflecting to the left,” Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview Monday.

DeSantis spoke to Breitbart News following his signing of Florida’s anti-riot bill, which enhances criminal penalties for rioters and takes a stand against defunding the police in the Sunshine State. On the emergence of “woke” corporations caving to the radical left, particularly in relation to state efforts to implement basic election integrity measures such as voter ID — like in Georgia — DeSantis said it is the height of hypocrisy given the fact that many of these entities continue to do business with bad actors, like the Chinese Communist Party.

Jonathan Pentland Arrest: Incident Reports Say Black Suspect Sexually Harassed Woman, Tried to Snatch Baby

 Via Reborn

The Black Lives Matter saint seen getting pushed by Army Sergeant Jonathan Pentland on Monday in a viral out-of-context video reportedly sexually harassed a woman and attempted to snatch a baby in separate incidents in Pentland’s neighborhood just days before the confrontation took place.

Right before the confrontation took place, the alleged “victim” — identified only as “Deandre” — allegedly approached “several neighbors in a threatening manner” at which point neighbors ran to Pentland’s house and begged him to help protect them.

The incident occurred in a suburb in Columbia, South Carolina and is being reported by the media as a white man harassing a black man for “walking while black.”

Chauvin has been remanded to the custody of Hennepin County. He was led out of the courtroom in handcuffs.


1,500 Orthodox rabbis say ADL needs ‘course correction’ in wake of Tucker Carlson feud

After the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) called for Fox News host Tucker Carlson to be fired, the Coalition for Jewish Values (CJV) stepped in to rebuke the ADL for “grossly misplaced charges of antisemitism.” Coverage of the rabbis’ letter quickly superseded that of the ADL’s allegations, changing the trajectory of a national story on anti-Semitism.

Appearing on Fox News Primetime on April 8, Carlson opined that progressive policies are enabling undocumented immigrants to illegally participate in elections and, in turn, “replace” the votes of U.S. citizens.

Shocking Video of Pregnant Illegal Aliens Moved Around at Night on Southern Border – Then Being Prepped for Travel Across the Country

 Via John

What is going on at the Southern Border? If Americans knew they’d be marching in the streets. Instead, illegal immigrants are being marched between facilities involved in their early days in the US.

Obama/Biden are back to Obama’s old ways of destroying this great nation.  They are trying to change the country to something like Venezuela and they will do ANYTHING to do it.  They’ll steal elections and break any number of laws.  It’s about absolute power.

 The College of the Ozarks campus is seen on March 17, 2003, in Point Lookout, Mo.

College of the Ozarks is suing President Joe Biden over his anti-discrimination executive order that would force the school to abandon its religious principles in favor of left-wing gender politics. 

Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a religious liberty legal group, filed a lawsuit in the Western District of Missouri on behalf of the College of the Ozarks, claiming that Biden’s anti-discrimination act “requires private religious colleges to place biological males into female dormitories and assign them as females’ roommates.”

Parler Bends The Knee To Big Tech


The same Mercer family behind the atrocious privacy nightmare of Cambridge Analytica. The same people who threw Milo under the bus. The same people who threw Steve Bannon under the bus. The same people who threw Parler Founder and Former CEO John Matze under the bus. The same people who threw President Trump under the bus.

Today Apple announced that they would be allowing Establishment Oligarch-owned Parler back on the Apple App Store. This comes after Parler ousted their pro-free speech CEO and Founder John Matze, who claims that his 40% stake in the company was stolen from him. After removing Matze Parler implemented a “troll filter” to censor “trolling content,” whatever that means.

Bloomberg reported that Parler is working with third-party artificial intelligence software company Hive to automatically censor and remove content that Apple doesn’t like. Hive works with other Big Tech companies like Reddit to leverage artificial intelligence to censor content at scale.
