This Man Lived Alone For Nearly 30 Years In The Mountains of Alaska In a Log Cabin Which He Built With His Own Hands
I recently resigned from my position as full tenured professor at the University of Toronto. I am now professor emeritus, and before I turned sixty. Emeritus is generally a designation reserved for superannuated faculty, albeit those who had served their term with some distinction. I had envisioned teaching and researching at the U of T, full time, until they had to haul my skeleton out of my office. I loved my job. And my students, undergraduates and graduates alike, were positively predisposed toward me. But that career path was not meant to be. There were many reasons, including the fact that I can now teach many more people and with less interference online. But here’s a few more:

When Robert E. Lee died in 1870, a memorial association was formed in the City of New Orleans. After six years had passed, the association raised an amazing $36,400 – during the throes of Reconstruction – to construct a monument. The world-famous New York-based sculptor Alexander Doyle (who studied in Bergamo, Rome, and Florence) was commissioned, and it was installed at Tivoli Circle – renamed Lee Circle – in 1884. The statue was placed atop a granite pedestal consisting of a 60 foot column. The statue itself is 16.5 feet high and made of bronze. Attendees at the dedication included Jefferson Davis, two daughters of General Lee, and former Confederate general P.G.T. Beauregard.
Monuments such as these also memorialized the many common soldiers whose bodies were never recovered for burial, or who lie strewn across battlefields in unknown, unmarked, or even mass graves. The postwar monuments provided solace for survivors and healing between the regions as monuments to the dead of both sides in the war were erected as the veterans were dying off. The Lee statue was a rare early monument erected during the post-war federal occupation of Louisiana.

This is a real inflection point in my mind, more significant than even the American Revolution. All of the enemies of the republic have been integrated into the system and all external enemies have been invited in by them.
As the illegitimate government is pursuing an aggressive war to defend the nation from which the recognized president took bribes as the Vice President and was able to use a billion dollars of US aid as leverage to unseat the prosecuting attorney then close to indicting Hunter Biden, the conduit by which those bribes flowed to Joe Biden himself, the media can see no connection.

Liz Cheney, much like most democrats this year, is on borrowed time.
Her decision to sell out to Nancy Pelosi and company has not paid dividends according to a new straw poll from the Wyoming Republican State Central Committee.
The poll shows her losing big in the GOP primary to her opponent, Harriet Hageman, who has been endorsed by President Donald Trump.
Hageman received ten times as many votes from the county activists, winning 59 to 6.

Gingrich: January 6th Committe“basically a lynch mob” and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland has “joined the lynch mob and is totally misusing the FBI.
Ron Paul: Jan. 6th Show Trials: A Political Charge and a Political Verdict by a Political Court
Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney (R) took issue with recent comments made by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R) in which he suggested that members of the Jan. 6 committee could be put behind bars should Republicans take control of Congress following the 2022 midterm elections.
Gingrich predicted on Sunday during an appearance on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that Republicans will take back the House and the Senate after the elections, and that the new Congress would potentially jail the committee for its investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot.

Join Professor Jesse Merriam for a discussion on the 14th Amendment.
No Amendment has done more to distort the original Constitution than the 14th Amendment. Eric Foner considers it to be the basis of a new founding of the United States. But is that because of its original intent or because the federal court system has used it in a way its authors never intended. Also, what can be done to counteract this ongoing affront to the original Constitution?
Jesse Merriam is an associate professor at Patrick Henry College in Purcellville, Virginia, and a Washington Fellow at the Claremont Institute's Center for the American Way of Life. He holds a J.D. from the George Washington University School of Law and a Ph.D in political science from Johns Hopkins University.
