The Professor and the Proposition

As the “Exceptional Nation” totters and pratfalls further toward perdition, some on what is commonly, if not entirely accurately, known as the “Right” are calling for the various factions to unite beneath a single banner – a band of brothers, as it were – to battle shoulder-to-shoulder against the Bolshevik plague-beast.

Several such tocsins have resounded from the San Bernardino Mountains west of Los Angeles, where stand the halls of the Claremont Institute, a think tank with whose precepts you  are excruciatingly familiar, even if not so the name.

Marxist Persecution of Christianity: Russian History that Americans Must Learn

 Mound covering one of the mass graves at Butovo. 

 Mound covering one of the mass graves at Butovo.

Marxism is anti-Christian at its very core.  Following the failure of Marxism to sweep Europe after World War I and the Russian Revolution, Marxist leadership concluded that Marxism could never dominate and flourish where Christian churches were strong.  Hence they have doubled down on undermining, uprooting, and destroying Christianity. The trend toward social Marxism versus the older more purely economic Marxism was thus born. In its strategic path to power, social Marxism undermines every aspect of a target culture, usually leading with control of the media and education establishments, and then government, but ultimately targeting all free speech and even free thought. The ultimate Marxist enemy is truth and especially the spiritual truth of Christianity and divine universal reality.

Supreme Court rules warrantless home gun confiscation is unconstitutional  in 9-0 vote - Flipboard

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that warrantless gun confiscation from Americans’ homes is unconstitutional, voting unanimously on the side of a Rhode Island man whose firearms were taken by law enforcement without a warrant after his wife expressed concerns that he might hurt himself.

According to Caniglia v Strom, a lower court had previously determined that police confiscating the guns without a warrant fell under the Fourth Amendment’s “community caretaking” exception, but a 9-0 vote from the nation’s top court struck down that ruling.

Thomas Jefferson wrote to Benjamin Rush in 1800: "I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health and the liberties of man."

 To Dr. Benjamin Rush.
Monticello, September 23, 1800.

Dear Sir

I have to acknowledge the receipt of your favor of August the 22d, and to congratulate you on the healthiness of your city.  Still Baltimore, Norfolk and Providence admonish us that we are not clear of our new scourge.  When great evils happen, I am in the habit of looking out for what good may arise from them as consolations to us, and Providence has in fact so established the order of things, as that most evils are the means of producing some good.  The yellow fever will discourage the growth of great cities in our nation, and I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health and the liberties of man.  True, they nourish some of the elegant arts, but the useful ones can thrive elsewhere, and less perfection in the others, with more health, virtue and freedom, would be my choice.

I agree with you entirely, in condemning the mania of giving names to objects of any kind after persons still living.  Death alone can seal the title of any man to this honor, by putting it out of his power to forfeit it.  There is one other mode of recording merit, which I have often thought might be introduced, so as to gratify the living by praising the dead.  In giving, for instance, a commission of Chief Justice to Bushrod Washington, it should be in consideration of his integrity, and science in the laws, and of the services rendered to our country by his illustrious relation, &c.  A commission to a descendant of Dr. Franklin, besides being in consideration of the proper qualifications of the person, should add that of the great services rendered by his illustrious ancestor, Benjamin Franklin, by the advancement of science, by inventions useful to man, &c.  I am not sure that we ought to change all our names.  And during the regal government, sometimes, indeed, they were given through adulation;  but often also as the reward of the merit of the times, sometimes for services rendered the colony.  Perhaps, too, a name when given, should be deemed a sacred property.

I promised you a letter on Christianity, which I have not forgotten.  On the contrary, it is because I have reflected on it, that I find much more time necessary for it than I can at present dispose of.  I have a view of the subject which ought to displease neither the rational Christian nor Deists, and would reconcile many to a character they have too hastily rejected.  I do not know that it would reconcile the genus irritabile vatum who are all in arms against me.  Their hostility is on too interesting ground to be softened.  The delusion into which the X.Y.Z. plot showed it possible to push the people;  the successful experiment made under the prevalence of that delusion on the clause of the Constitution, which, while it secured the freedom of the press, covered also the freedom of religion, had given to the clergy a very favorite hope of obtaining an establishment of a particular form of Christianity through the United States;  and as every sect believes its own form the true one, every one perhaps hoped for his own, but especially the Episcopalians and Congregationalists.  The returning good sense of our country threatens abortion to their hopes, and they believe that any portion of power confided to me, will be exerted in opposition to their schemes.  And they believe rightly:  for I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.  But this is all they have to fear from me:  and enough too in their opinion.  And this is the cause of their printing lying pamphlets against me, forging conversations for me with Mazzei, Bishop Madison, &c., which are absolute falsehoods without a circumstance of truth to rest on;  falsehoods, too, of which I acquit Mazzei and Bishop Madison, for they are men of truth.

But enough of this :  it is more than I have before committed to paper on the subject of all the lies that has been preached and printed against me.  I have not seen the work of Sonnoni which you mention, but I have seen another work on Africa, (Parke’s,) which I fear will throw cold water on the hopes of the friends of freedom.  You will hear an account of an attempt at insurrection in this State.  I am looking with anxiety to see what will be its effect on our State.  We are truly to be pitied.  I fear we have little chance to see you at the federal city or in Virginia, and as little at Philadelphia.  It would be a great treat to receive you here.  But nothing but sickness could effect that;  so I do not wish it.  For I wish you health and happiness, and think of you with affection.  Adieu.

Silence is Consent

The Four Boxes of Liberty : Libertarian

Back in those horrible days when the State of Florida's Education establishment was attempting to
educate me . I was sent to a lovely lady to teach me French. They said it would make me a more
rounded person. In this class after teaching me to sit still, and listen they wrote upon the Chalk board
the following words:

le silence est un consentement.

I dutifully wrote these words into my notebook with careful attention, and dread. We then spent days
learning to say them with correct inference, and lip position. Then that lovely lady looked me in the
eye, and smiling over her fantastic cleavage , and asked me what it meant in English. I shrugged and

She exploded in a torrent of non-English words that I took to mean I was not all there.
That evening I wrote 100 times that “le silence est un consentement” means silence is consent. The
next day when I was called upon again to speak correctly the term, and then translate I responded with


In twenty minutes I was on my way to the office with a card bearing the words

"Next try elsewhere!

However it seems that this exact phrase in one of our most important lessons to learn if this nation is to
continue as a bastion of freedom.

Back a few years a lady with a Latin derived name visited us at the NC PATCON at Dixieland. In her
desertion she explained to us that what we were overcoming was of our own avoidance.

She showed how in 1871 the others, I will label globalist, had switched punctuation in our
Constitution, and given power where they could abuse it. Because we had never really read our
Constitution we just murmured, and went about our personal affairs. Today patriots are gleefully
handing out small cards with the modified Constitution because we silently gave our consent.
In the early days of our Nation the people of western Pennsylvania failed to pay their assigned taxes.

Mainly because in those farther out provinces they bartered every thing with the Whiskey they
manufactured. Our past President, and Father of our Republic, General George Washington took an
army unit there, killed, and wounded many, and burned, and returned to Washington DC with his stolen
goods. We murmured, spoke among ourselves and Silently consented to his violation of our rights and
murder of our fellow citizens.

In early 1900s those elite Congressional representatives made hard drink illegal, in violation of our
Constitution, and we silently sneaked down to a speakeasy to drink illegal liquor.

Now in 2020 our unelected bureaucrats decided we must all wear masks, stand 6 feet apart, not attend
our churches, while opening tattoo parlors and Bars, and now must receive what is correctly labeled
trial vaccines. While we the people silently grumble, a few refuse, and some speak up, but most
consent to the vacating of our rights to life liberty and a pursuit of happiness given to us by our creator.

To quote the great hunchbacked Ring Master of Thunder-dome.

"Ladies and Gentilemen, boys and girls"


We have come to that place in our nations existence where we are not only about to watch our planet do
strange things, but our friends and neighbors are about to look at us,
those crazy conspiracy theorists and racists,

and see not us but the enemies to their wealth, their possessions, and their way of life.
It is time for us to stop giving our silent consent.

In Fayetteville NC, like many cities, our Mayor does ZOOM presentations on You-tube from a seat in
the $51 billion dollar stadium we the taxpayers built, but are forbidden to go to while his city
employees do walks, and runs behind him. Our Police and other city employees park in the $7 Million dollar parking garage while we park on the street blocks away.

We the people stand silent in our consent.

It is time to stop consenting!

It is time to begin to begin to submit recall petitions like confetti in a wind storm.

Probably not though since they will stand behind “Robert’s Rules” and tell us we are out of order
before having an officer lead us from their presence.

Prince Harry Calls First Amendment ‘Bonkers,’ Slams Royal Family For ‘Genetic Pain And Suffering’

 Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex joins a Botswana Defence Force anti-poaching patrol on the Chobe river on day four of the royal tour of Africa on September 26, 2019 in Kasane, Botswana.

“Hey, go home! We fought a war to get rid of Royals on our soil. No need to understand anything we do. Bye!!,” said one commenter on the podcast site, per the Spectator US. “You can always leave if you don’t like our constitution and please find a country where you don’t have to deal with those bonker[s] rights.”

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw (TX) struck a final blow, telling Prince Harry he’d just “doubled the size of my Independence Day party” in response to the Prince’s complaints.

Prince Harry, who, along with his wife, Meghan Markle, separated from the British royal family a year ago, blasted his relatives in a podcast interview with actor Dax Shepard, calling the royal family a repository of “genetic pain and suffering” — an apparent criticism of his father, Prince Charles — and excoriated his new homeland, the United States, for preserving the freedom of speech in its Constitution.

Speaking to the Armchair Expert podcast, Prince Harry, fresh off another tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey, which featured his wife accusing an unnamed member of the royal family of abject racism and suggesting that the British royals had no interest in assisting a pregnant woman suffering from depression, said he moved to the U.S. to break a cycle of “genetic pain and suffering” in his own family.

                       University of California Ends ACT, SAT Testing For Admissions And Scholarships

The University of California announced a legal decision Friday that said its system will stop considering SAT and ACT scores in decisions for admissions and scholarships.

As reported by The New York Times, the decision brings a long dispute to a conclusion. In 2019, a group of students, advocacy groups and the Compton Unified School District brought a lawsuit against the University of California system seeking to end its use of the tests to determine admissions.
