The Father of Representative Government in America


It is not the purpose of this article to set forth any new discovery, nor to present any reflections which are especially startling or original.

The purpose is, to emphasize a neglected fact of American history; a fact attested by ancient records, narrated in historical works, and familiar to historians; yet a fact the full significance of which is not generally recognized.

On the 30th day of July, 1619, the first Legislative Assembly in America convened at Jamestown, Virginia.

This Assembly marked the first victory of popular rights in the Western Hemisphere, and was in some respects, the most remarkable Assembly that ever convened. It was, not only the beacon light of freedom in America, but it, also, exercised an important reflex influence on the constitution of England, and is entitled to be included among the decisive events of history.

The South Delivered Up to the Care of the North

When the Articles of Confederation were put to the States for ratification in November, 1776, the preparatory debates revealed very strong warnings of sectionalism. These clear and distinct divisions eventually produced threats of New England secession in 1814, economic fissures by the 1820s, talk of Southern secession by 1850, and eventually an all-out shooting-war in 1861 which ended the experiment in free government.

Loudoun County Defends Alleged Rape Cover-up, Attacks Victim’s Father


You must understand how fucking vile and evil these people are.

Other than furthering the cause, they have no morality. A 15-year-old girl repeatedly sodomized? That is just fine with them if, in the end, they get what they want.

The organized left will sacrifice all your daughters to create their sick and twisted version of utopia.

Keep voting Democrats, you Blue State, and City morons.

They are coming for your children, and if you refuse to see that, you are as guilty as they are.

Do you really hate Republicans more than you love your own children?

Loudoun County Public Schools (LCPS) released a statement Wednesday defending the cover-up of an alleged rape while attacking the alleged victim’s father.

Here’s a quick rundown of what happened in Loudoun County, Virginia…

On May 28, the 15-year-old daughter of the father in question, Scott Smith, says she was brutally raped and sodomized in a Stone Bridge High School girls’ bathroom by a boy who gained entry by wearing a skirt and identifying as “gender fluid.”

According to the Daily Wire, who first reported the story, this boy was criminally charged with “two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio.”

Consumer Sentiment Crashes as Confidence in Biden Economic Policies Collapses

 Two peas in a pod.

U.S. consumer sentiment took a surprise downturn in October to the second-lowest level since 2011.

The University of Michigan’s preliminary October read of consumer sentiment fell to 71.4 from 72.8 in September, data released Friday showed. Economists had forecast an improvement to 74.

Richard Curtin, the survey’s chief economists explained the downturn:

Consumer sentiment has remained for the past three months at the lows first recorded in response to last year’s shutdown of the economy. The Delta variant, supply chain shortages, and reduced labor force participation rates will continue to dim the pace of consumer spending into 2022. There is another, less tangible factor that has contributed to the slump in optimism: confidence in government economic policies has significantly declined during the past six months.

Just 19 percent of consumers have a favorable view of President Joe Biden’s economic policies, down from a high-water mark of 31 percent in April. Unfavorable evaluations now stand at 48 percent, up from 32 percent in April, Curtin said.

The public’s loss of confidence is widespread. According to Curtin, the decline was recorded across all age, income, and education subgroups as well as among Democrats, Independents, and Republicans.

“The adage ‘never let a crisis go to waste’ mirrors the range and scale of Biden’s progressive proposals, but consumers see it as too risky a strategy,” Curtin said.

The measures of both current conditions and expectations for the future declined in the first two weeks of October, the survey showed.

Deputy Treasury Sec’y Adeyemo: ‘Only Way’ Past ‘Transition’ That’s Causing High Prices Is to Get ‘Everyone’ in U.S. and World Vaccinated


During an interview with ABC News on Thursday, Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo stated that the economy is in transition, “and as part of that transition, we are seeing high prices for some of the things that people have to buy.” And “the only way we’re going to get to a place where we work through this transition is if everyone in America and everyone around the world gets vaccinated.”

Adeyemo said, “Today, we face an economy that’s in transition, and as part of that transition, we are seeing high prices for some of the things that people have to buy. That’s exactly why the president was focused in the American Rescue Plan in ensuring that we got stimulus into the hands of the American people so they’d be able to buy the products that they need. But the reality is that the only way we’re going to get to a place where we work through this transition is if everyone in America and everyone around the world gets vaccinated. That’s why the president continues to be focused on the idea that we get everyone who can vaccinated in this country. And then, while we’re doing that, we continue to provide the kind of resources the American people need to make it to the other side.”

ATF Seize Huge Larry Vickers Gun Collection


A U.S. Army veteran and experienced Delta Force member, Vickers later turned teacher and historian, training shooters of all experience levels and documenting famous and infamous arms alike. Vickers fought in Operation Desert Storm, participating in Operation Acid Gambit, earning a Bronze Star with V for Valor.

According to recently published documents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, or ATF, the agency recently confiscated literally truckloads of firearms from the collection of gun industry legend and cornerstone Larry Vickers (.pdf).

Many of the guns are irreplaceable historical firearms that Vickers personally documented for his collector’s guides. While many of the guns appear to be NFA-regulated, the list includes many that may not be which raises questions about what’s going on.

Multiple sources are saying that this is the result of Vickers letting his Special Occupational Tax payment lapse, which would explain why the ATF confiscated the NFA-regulated guns.

However, among the many, many machineguns, there are a few rifles and receivers, which may or may not be NFA-regulated, which raises additional questions. So far, Vickers has not given a statement about the seizures.

Loudoun Schools Did Not Record Multiple Alleged Sexual Assaults Over A Period Of Years & Parents of Girl Allegedly Assaulted In School Bathroom Pursue Legal Action Against Loudoun County District

 People hold up signs during a rally against "critical race theory" (CRT) being taught in schools at the Loudoun County Government center in Leesburg, Virginia on June 12, 2021. - "Are you ready to take back our schools?" Republican activist Patti Menders shouted at a rally opposing anti-racism teaching that critics like her say trains white children to see themselves as "oppressors." "Yes!", answered in unison the hundreds of demonstrators gathered this weekend near Washington to fight against "critical race theory," the latest battleground of America's ongoing culture wars. The term "critical race theory" defines a strand of thought that appeared in American law schools in the late 1970s and which looks at racism as a system, enabled by laws and institutions, rather than at the level of individual prejudices. But critics use it as a catch-all phrase that attacks teachers' efforts to confront dark episodes in American history, including slavery and segregation, as well as to tackle racist stereotypes.

Law also requires sex assaults to be reported to superintendent; superintendent claimed he did not know of any sexual assaults on school property.

 Loudoun County Public Schools did not record multiple known incidents of alleged sexual assault in schools dating back several years, despite a law that requires statistics about school safety incidents to be reported to the public and which includes provisions holding school superintendents personally liable for violations, a Daily Wire review of public records found.

Democrats Didn’t Steal (sic) the 2020 Election, But Zuckerberg Paid to Win It for Them

There is little, if any, substantial evidence proving the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

That doesn’t mean it wasn’t bought, however.

Recent reporting indicates that Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg — rather than funding Democratic campaigns directly — helped finance a systemic restructuring of election policies, practices and personnel, all to the benefit of Joe Biden and the Democratic Party.
