19. "There was no surrender at Appomattox, and no withdrawal from the field which committed our people and their children to a heritage of shame and dishonor. No cowardice on any battlefield could be as base and shameful as the silent acquiescence in the scheme which was teaching the children in their homes and schools that the commercial value of slavery was the cause of the war, that prisoners of war held in the South were starved and treated with a barbarous inhumanity, that Jefferson Davis and Robert E Lee were traitors to their country and false to their oaths, that the young men who left everything to resist invasion, and climbed the slopes of Gettysburg and died willingly on a hundred fields were rebels against a righteous government."
The Rev. James Power Smith, last surviving member of Jackson's staff, 1907
“He [Lee] was a superb specimen of manly grace and elegance…There was about him a stately dignity, calm poise, absolute self-possession, entire absence of self-consciousness, and gracious consideration for all about him that made a combination of character not to be surpassed…His devotion to his invalid wife, who for many years was a martyr to rheumatic gout, was pathetic to see…His tenderness to his children, especially his daughters, was mingled with a delicate courtesy which belonged to an older day than ours – a courtesy which recalls the preux chevalier of knightlier times.” – Margaret J. Preston.

They control what we see, how we see it, and what we are supposed to think about it.
For 50 years, the left and far left have been slowly consolidating power within the main levers of influence in our society. Everything from movies and TV, academia, the mainstream media, culture, and more recently Big Tech have become increasingly unabashed mouthpieces for the Democratic Party and far-left activists. Meanwhile, conservatives have mostly resisted engaging or fighting back in any kind of unified or effective manner. We are now reaping the hellish consequences of that inaction.
The warning signs have been there for decades. University professors have been at the forefront of teaching leftist ideology since the late 1960s. I challenge you to think back to your grade school, high school, and college days and try to remember how many overtly conservative teachers you had. Now, think about how many obviously liberal ones you had. I’m fairly certain, for the vast majority of the public, most people’s foundational schooling came from overtly liberal individuals, with liberal biased assignments and reading. Yet, most of us conservatives when faced with this realization just shrugged and went on with our lives. We knew what we believed, and why we believed it and, thus, we were never threatened by or felt like we needed to “upset” the system by making sure our side was represented.

These parents in Arizona have had enough!
Reports have broken out that a group of parents in Arizona took over Vail School District’s board meeting in a protest after the board mandated that all students must wear masks.
The board was meeting up to discuss their previous mask mandate but ended up leaving the meeting abruptly after a large group of parents entered the room.
The board members just got up and left.

Lyndon scoffed at the Democrat and “mainstream media” accusation that the GOP is the party of “rednecks.” Especially in the era of Trump, Republicans are “regular working people,” and not the “redneck, toting, moronic race haters” that liberals claim,” Lydon said.
Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten tore into the Democratic Party and said the “collapse” of America is happening because of Joe Biden’s “nonsense.”
“You have a Democrat party that doesn’t respect anything but the latest woke fashion trend and that’s to the destruction of America,” Rotten told the UK Times in a recent interview. Born Johnny Lydon in Britain, Rotten, became American citizen in 2013.
Speaking bluntly of Joe Biden, the “Anarchy in the UK” singer said “I’m watching America now collapse because of the Biden nonsense.”

them to be the best, and give them the equipment they need to make their
jobs safer and more effective.

Any reasonable investigation into how we got so far from the Constitution so fast has to come back to one incredibly simple answer: the media.
Sure, politicians seek to undermine the Constitution, because it’s the only thing that limits or attempts to limit their power. They have always sought to undermine its authority. That’s why Chief Justice Marshall devised a role for the Supreme Court to rule on Constitutionality. Or, he was just a power-hungry megalomaniac, maybe both. By 1801, the politicians had already sought to worm their way around the limitations of the Constitution and Marshall leapt on Marbury v Madison to insert the Supreme Court as an arbiter of Constitutionality. I maintain, and always have, that Marshall lacked jurisdiction and he admitted in his memoirs that he took the case with the purpose of devising a role for the Supreme Court.

On Monday night, a New York radio host streamed herself on Facebook asserting “F*** the police,” then only hours later allegedly drove her Volkswagen, although she had a suspended license, into a NYPD highway officer who was redirecting traffic, killing him, before she reportedly sped away and was later apprehended. Police say her blood alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit.

Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) slammed President Joe Biden on Wednesday night as he delivered the Republican Party’s rebuttal speech to the speech that Biden gave just moments prior that was panned by critics as divisive and extreme.
“We just heard President Biden’s first address to Congress. Our president seems like a good man,” Scott began. “His speech was full of good words. But President Biden promised you a specific kind of leadership. He promised to unite a nation. To lower the temperature. To govern for all Americans, no matter how we voted. That was the pitch. You just heard it again. But our nation is starving for more than empty platitudes. We need policies and progress that bring us closer together.”
