James McClellan was a founding father of the Abbeville Institute. He had a law degree and a doctorate in political science. He was a fountain of knowledge on constitutional law and was an authority on the states rights tradition. He was an advisor to Senator Jesse Helms of North Carolina.
I am writing because his daughter in law Annie, who is married to Jim's son Angus, has an aggressive form of Triple Negative breast cancer. They have health insurance through his small graduate fellowship at Princeton University. And their families are trying to cover the excess billings and other increased living expenses they now face. But they have had to hire a nanny to watch their three-year-old and a 11-month-old for the next year.
They are facing a $1,000 a week bill for most of the coming year.
If you would like to help them, Annie's sister, Grace, has set up a GoFundMe site.:
Jim passed away before his time. He was a great blessing to the Institute, and your gift, however small, will be a tribute to him.

GOP Rep. Tom Rice Regrets Jan. 6 Objection Vote, Says Trump ‘Responsible’ for Incident (Being Primaried, by 10 Republicans)
Insurance agent and Christian speaker Arthur, 57, has run very clearly on her opposition to communism as a Cuban-native whose family fled the island in the late 1960s.
“The Biden administration wants to create an America that looks very much like Castro’s Communist Cuba. I will not submit,” she said. “I will be a powerful advocate for the legal citizens of District 7, South Carolina, and America.”
If elected, Barbara said she’d protect constitutional values and oppose what she calls Marxist/socialists in Congress but did not provide specific policy points.
Arthur said she also was inspired to run for Rice’s seat after his vote to impeach Trump, saying he joined the “communist-loving Democrats” and that was the last straw for her.
A West Virginia coal miner reacted to left-wing Hollywood star Bette Midler insulting the people of his state, pointing out that West Virginians contribute far more to the United States than the actress.
“I think my first reaction was, ‘Bette Who?’ I don’t really recall anything that she’s done too significant here in the last little bit,” coal miner Bo Copley told Fox & Friends First on Wednesday.
Copley added that West Virginians aren’t losing any sleep over Midler’s insult, especially given that her career has been at a standstill for a while. “I don’t think a lot of West Virginians are losing sleep over it,” he said. “The only thing to lose sleep over is getting up early and heading out and going to work.”

The propaganda drumbeat about the dangers of the right wing stealing the 2024 election is building up to an early crescendo. If you've been following the news, you'll have noticed more and more articles appearing, all predicting or forecasting or worrying about right-wingers forcibly "taking power" or overthrowing a "democratic" election result. A few examples (out of many that qualify):

McCaulley's embrace of Critical Race Theory over Christianity shines most clearly in his article entitled "Why Christians Must Fight Systemic Racism." It's a very defensive article in which he insists he's not a communist and that he doesn't consider all White people racist. However, to the extent that he insists that America, the least racist country in the world, which has made racism illegal in both the public and private spheres, is systemically racist, he's advancing a purely Marxist doctrine.
The Salvation Army, having faced a massive backlash because of November's "Let's Talk About Racism" guide, doesn't seem to have learned its lesson. It's now announced that, in January, it will be offering a two-day racial justice forum in Illinois. This turn to the left does not bode well for an organization that has already seen a significant drop in charitable donations since it decided to embrace leftist politics.

Hong Kong university REMOVES Tiananmen Square memorial called the 'Pillar of Shame' in the dead of night after pro-Beijing 'patriots' dominate elections
Had this picture on the wall in the kitchen when I lived in Can Tho.
The 26-foot tall Pillar of Shame depicts 50 bodies piled on top of each other
It was made by a Danish sculpture to symbolise those killed in the square in 1989
To this day, the true number of deaths in the bloody military crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Beijing's Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989 is unknown
The dismantling of the sculpture came days after pro-Beijing candidates scored a landslide victory in the Hong Kong legislative elections
