Pearl Harbor: Dec. 7, 1941, A Day That Will ‘Will Live in Infamy’

On Dec. 9th, 1941, the Japanese launched a sneak attack on our forces at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. As a result, America formally joined the war against the Axis powers.

2,402 American servicemen were killed and 1,282 were wounded.

This is in memory of them.


Tax Victory: Chicago/Cook County Soda Tax Canceled Starting Today

Tax Victory: Chicago/Cook County Soda Tax Canceled Starting Today

-By Warner Todd Huston

Over the last few days a western Cook County Walmart store hoisted a banner celebrating the end of the Cook County soda tax. The Walmart sign proves what a terrible idea this tax really was.

Months ago the county board for Cook, the county that boasts Chicago as its hub, levied a one cent per ounce tax on soda pop and sugared drinks. The tax was never popular. Even when it was passing the people were in the process of rising up against it and eventually the pressure got so bad that the board capitulated and announced that December 1 would mark the end of the tax.

The tax was set at a penny per ounce, so that was a hike of 20 cents per bottles of pop in a store cooler, 50 cents on a Double Gulp at 7-Eleven, and $2.88 on a case of pop at any Cook County store.

The tax was supposed to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for the county budget over the next few years, but it was revealed that the county expected $18 million in new tax revenue in the first month of the tax. But all officials really got was $300,000 because people either bought their pop in another county or stopped buying pop altogether. So, when ever you hear a government entity proclaim how much they will make in taxes with a new tax, know this is always a lie.

Think I am just blowing steam? We go back to the Walmart mentioned above. This Walmart in Streamwood, a far western city in Cook County, had posted this sign in the week leading up to the end of the tax:

Folks, let’s realize what this sign really means. It means that Walmart felt it was worth the expenditure of a few hundred dollars to create this banner to alert customers that they can buy soda again without the odious tax.

Charles Barkley Calls Steve Bannon a ‘White Separatist’

-By Warner Todd Huston

In comments attacking Alabama Republican Senate Candidate Roy Moore, former basketball great Charles Barkley called former presidential advisor Steven Bannon a “white separatist.”

The former Philadelphia 76ers power forward waded into the Alabama Senate race insisting that the Republican candidate should never have gotten as far as he has, not because of the unproven accusations of sexual misconduct, but because he associated himself with the “white separatist” Bannon.

Barkley made his comments to the press before the November 25 Alabama-Auburn football game, according to USA Today.

“Roy Moore is running with Steve Bannon as his right-hand man, who is a white separatist,” Barkley said on Saturday.

“I’m not even going to get into the women stuff,” Barkley continued. “But the guy — how can you be a white separatist and represent all the constituents in your state? I mean, everybody is going crazy over this sexual allegations, but Roy Moore, to me, when he brought in Steve Bannon, should have been disqualified.”

I’m floating on air (lyrics by Freddie Cosmo)

-By Gary Krasner

Oh, what a beautiful mornin’,
Oh, what a beautiful day.
I got a beautiful feelin’
Ev’rything’s goin’ my way.

I’m sorry about that. I’ve been breaking out in song and dance all day.

If people saw me on the street today, they would wonder why that faggot was singing and dancing.

Let me tell you why: ALL THE DOMINOS ARE FALLING!!!!!

All the liberals I hate are dropping through a trap door on a daily basis. Poetically, a trap door that THEY carefully constructed for Trump, Fox News, and Roy Moore.

There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow
There’s a bright golden haze on the meadow
The corn is as high as an elephant’s eye,
An’ it looks like it’s climbin’ clear up to the sky.

Sorry again. I can’t contain myself. Is this what it’s like to be gay?! I was never that crazy about Broadway show tunes until now!

The liberal media ICONS are toppling. NBC fired Matt Lauer today. He was the biggest apologist for Dems, and one of the most shamelessly biased one.

George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

By the President of the United States of America, a Proclamation, October 3, 1789

Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor — and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be — That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks — for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation — for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war — for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed — for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted — for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation

November 23, 2017 | Filed Under Thanksgiving, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off on


Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation

During the Civil War, both presidents, Lincoln and Jeff Davis, issued Thanksgiving Day proclamations and celebration of the holiday as we know it grew as a result.

We all know about the famed Pilgrims who feasted with the local Indians in 1621, but after that the holiday was only observed once in a while. When he was the general commanding the American forces during the Revolution, George Washington issued a Thanksgiving proclamation in December of 1777. After the war, in 1789, he did so once again. Then, as President, John Adams also issued proclamations for two of his four years in the highest office of the land. But after that it was more or less a forgotten idea.

It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of a great war, that President Lincoln revived the tradition. The northern president wasn’t the only one to do this during the war, though. President Jefferson Davis had issued his Thanksgiving Day proclamation a year earlier, in 1862. Jefferson’s idea of Thanksgiving was a bit different than the one we think of today. The southern President had declared that the south’s observance would be a day of fasting and reflection, not feasting and revelry.

Of course, the holiday we are familiar with is connected to Lincoln’s proclamation. But, apparently the proclamation was not all Lincoln’s idea. It wasn’t just the war that spurred Lincoln to issue his proclamation, but a letter from a woman named Sarah Hale that convinced him to do so. Hale, the writer of the poem now called “Mary Had A Little Lamb,” had been trying to convince presidents to issue a Thanksgiving proclamation since 1846 and when Lincoln saw her letter he decided to follow her suggestion.

From there our formal national holiday was born.

President Abraham Lincoln’s 1863 Thanksgiving Proclamation:

The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.

President John Adams Thanksgiving: A Proclamation Recommending a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer

Delivered March 6, 1799 by President John Adams

As no truth is more clearly taught in the Volume of Inspiration, nor any more fully demonstrated by the experience of all ages, than that a deep sense and a due acknowledgment of the governing providence of a Supreme Being and of the accountableness of men to Him as the searcher of hearts and righteous distributer of rewards and punishments are conducive equally to the happiness and rectitude of individuals and to the well-being of communities; as it is also most reasonable in itself that men who are made capable of social acts and relations, who owe their improvements to the social state, and who derive their enjoyments from it, should, as a society, make their acknowledgments of dependence and obligation to Him who hath endowed them with these capacities and elevated them in the scale of existence by these distinctions; as it is likewise a plain dictate of duty and a strong sentiment of nature that in circumstances of great urgency and seasons of imminent danger earnest and particular supplications should be made to Him who is able to defend or to destroy; as, moreover, the most precious interests of the people of the United States are still held in jeopardy by the hostile designs and insidious acts of a foreign nation, as well as by the dissemination among them of those principles, subversive of the foundations of all religious, moral, and social obligations, that have produced incalculable mischief and misery in other countries; and as, in fine, the observance of special seasons for public religious solemnities is happily calculated to avert the evils which we ought to deprecate and to excite to the performance of the duties which we ought to discharge by calling and fixing the attention of the people at large to the momentous truths already recited, by affording opportunity to teach and inculcate them by animating devotion and giving to it the character of a national act:

Our New, Post Weinstein World Order

Our New, Post Weinstein World Order

-By Gary Krasner

After reading slimy stories about Weinstein, Franken, Rose, et. al., I believe the take-away is that a man must respect a woman’s dignity!

And that means that men must, ASK BEFORE YOU GRAB! “ABYG” must be taught is grade school, along with “Just say no to drugs.”

I don’t want to get into the weeds of this policy. But since no one else has, I guess it’s up to me. And language is important. For example:

Wrong: “Hey Miss Jones, can I grab your ass?”
Right: “Pardon me, Ms. Jones, may I have the great pleasure of fondling your buttocks?”

See that you’re careful to avoid vulgar terms. Stick to the safe ones, like penis, breasts, and buttocks. You want to avoid creating a hostile work environment or make a woman feel like a slut — unless it’s a time when she wants to be treated like a slut. Always ask first!

And one must never ASSUME that a woman would want to see your penis. You just don’t know unless you ask. But politely!

Wrong: “Hey Miss Jones, what do you think of THIS. Ehh?! (Canadian version)”
Right: “Excuse me Ms. Jones, I was just wondering whether or not you might wish to view my penis?

And add, “and would you prefer it flaccid or erect?” And also, “Do you want fries with that?” In other words, provide her with options. Because when it comes to women’s empowerment, you want to be part of the solution; not part of the problem!

Remember, it’s about RESPECT!

(You found this distasteful? I’ll quote Franken, “it was just a joke!”)

Gun-Grabbin Gabby Giffords Wants to Take Away Your… Muskets?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords just gave us more proof that the left’s real goal with “gun control” is nothing short of a total elimination of the Second Amendment and a ban on all guns.

One of the first things that liberals insist when discussing “common sense gun control” is that they only want to make America safe, not put an end to the Second Amendment. They piously proclaim themselves to be stewards of the Constitution and insist that they don’t want to take your guns away from you.

Then there is their other claim, which the Second Amendment was written in an era where there are only muzzleloading muskets, so perhaps only muzzleloading guns are covered by the law of the land.

But they are liars. And Giffords just proved it.

Veterans Day, 2017: This is Why Americans Love OUR Veterans

-By Warner Todd Huston

America is a singularly different nation where it concerns our military veterans. We love them. We even have a national holiday to honor them. This is not so in most of the rest of the world. Elsewhere military veterans are not so loved as they are here.

Is that because the United States is the Sparta of the world, loving war more than anything else? Hardly. In fact its because our soldiers bring peace wherever they go, not perpetual war.

In other countries, soldiers are usually the dregs of society, living off the people while at the same time lording over them with machine guns and violence.

In other countries the military is feared by both the people and the government because all too often the army is used to take power and steal away the government for its own aggrandizement. There is no accident that the word “coup” is one rarely spoken in the USA unless when viewing foreign news.

So, not in America. In the USA we respect our soldiers because they respect us as much as they respect the law.

When an American sees a soldier an American will feel pride, not fear. When an American hears that a fellow is a veteran, an American thanks that fellow for his service.

In other countries when people see soldiers they fear them, they loathe them. In other countries they don’t want to sit near soldiers on public transportation, they avoid eye contact. Here we shake their hand and ask if they need anything.

So, from us to you, our dear military veterans, we thank you. We thank you for putting your lives on hold while serving us, while making sure we are safe and able to go about our business unafraid of danger, and for putting your own safety at risk.

Happy Veterans Day to you all.

Same Old, Same Old, Terrorism

-By Gary Krasner

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said it was terrorism (Duh. thank you for clearing that up!) and “a particularly cowardly act.”

We don’t need his commentary on the act! We need him to resume surveillance of mosques when leads on possible terror lead to those mosques.

But cowardly?! Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov is a devout Muslim who obeyed the mandates of the Koran and sharia law–which is integrated into Islam as its political commandments.

Attention David: 8 killed without a gun. Most since 911 for NYC. Maybe we should outlaw truck rentals!!!?

Uzbekistan immigrant. Diversity visa lottery program. IRRELEVANT. He was committed to sharia. Bar islamists from the US (and nazis and commies. No difference) regardless of nation of origin.

PBS is pushing again the apologists’ anthem that defend Islam:

Self radicalized – as if that means it’s not a serious threat. When you can recruit an army of murderers by merely presenting an ideology, that’s a serious threat.

Lone wolf – as if that means lone crazy killer. Wrong. He works alone to remain undetected. You don’t need “material support” to kill people! He’s united by the ideology! That’s all soldiers of Islam need.

Muslims have “Muslim Insurance.” That’s the insurance protection that Muslims receive when liberals label Saipov a “radical Muslim extremist.”

Dear Conservatives, Supergirl Thinks You’re Stupid and She Doesn’t Want You Watching Her Show

Dear Conservatives, Supergirl Thinks You’re Stupid and She Doesn’t Want You Watching Her Show

-By Warner Todd Huston

Last week the premiere episode of season three for the CW network’s Supergirl debuted, and it had a very clear message for conservative viewers: you are stupid, and you should go away.

As season three kicked off were treated to an evil, sexist, capitalist, Trump-like real estate developer who hates poor people and told that only “morons” don’t believe in global warming, all in a show that treats all white males like villains. Well, all but the one who is a geeky, tech guy who is afraid of his shadow, bad with girls, and uncomfortable in his own skin (Last season featured a white guy, of sorts, as Supergirl’s needy boyfriend, but he was an alien, not a white human).

It is a long way from the easy-going, inoffensive, and fun show that debuted for a single season on CBS before moving to the CW.

The fingers in the eyes of conservative viewers began in the first minutes of the debut episode, “The Girl of Steel.”

The episode opens in the midst of a battle between Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and a bad guy. She defeats the bad man, of course, and saves her lesbian stepsister and her fiancée in the process.

Next, we are introduced to season three’s big baddie who shows up in a meeting as evil capitalist real estate developer Morgan Edge (Adrian Pasdar). He is, of course, a capitalist “exploiter,” we are told. During a meeting of city officials, Edge is accused of setting up a “development that would level the whole area and force people from their homes just to build high-rises for the wealthy.” Of course. They later call him a “stubborn sexist” who has “all the charisma of a Michael Douglas movie from the 90s.”

If you didn’t catch that latter reference, it was yet another dig at white men. It referenced actor Michael Douglas’ 1993 hit movie Falling Down, a film that cast him as a middle-aged, unemployed, white man who snapped and went on a psychotic shooting spree through downtown Los Angeles.

Nate Boyer, NFL Player and Army Veteran Who Helped Colin Kaepernick Take a Knee During Anthem, Pens ‘Open Letter’

-By Warner Todd Huston

The former Army Special Forces veteran and NFL player who helped Colin Kaepernick devise his take-a-knee-styled national anthem protest penned an open letter pleading for Americans to “like each other” again.

Boyer, a former Green Berret who was signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in May of 2015, drew ire from many of his Army compatriots by helping former San Francisco 49ers quarterback formulate his idea of kneeling during the anthem last year.

Last September, Kaepernick noted that he, “had a long conversation with Nate Boyer, who is a military vet.” He added, “And we were talking to him about, ‘How can we get the message back ‘on track? And not take away from the military. … But keep the focus on what the issues really are.

“As we talked about it, we came up with taking a knee,” Kaepernick concluded last year, “because there are issues that still need to be addressed. And it was also a way to try to show more respect to the men and women that fight for this country.”

But the anthem protest inventor who turned free agent last year but was left unsigned for the 2017 season, also noted that he could never stand in honor of the flag and country.

FBI Warns of Growing Domestic Terror Threat Posed by Black Extremist Groups

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is warning that the country faces an increasing level of threats from acts of domestic terror at the hands of a growing number of “black identity extremist” (BIE) groups.

The bombshell new report released by the FBI’s counterterrorism division states that these groups are targeting police.

“[I]t is very likely BIEs proactively target police and openly identify and justify their actions with social-political agendas commensurate with their perceived injustices against African Americans,” the report says, according to Fox News.

The report goes on to say that these BIE’s began forming after the 2014 shooting of African American teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

The report mentions that the Bureau began monitoring for threats after the Ferguson riots and in the intervening years have complied a long list of incidents to prove the threat is real. It also noted that these incidents of violence are “likely” to continue.

“It is very likely that BIEs’ perceptions of unjust treatment of African-Americans and the perceived unchallenged illegitimate actions of law enforcement will inspire premeditated attacks against law enforcement over the next year,” the paper said. “It is very likely additional controversial police shootings of African-Americans and the associated legal proceedings will continue to serve as drivers for violence against law enforcement.”

Naturally, minority groups are insisting that the relatively new term “black identity extremists” is “racial profiling” and an example of racism at the FBI.

Video: PBS News Hour Victim of Violent, Senseless Attack

-By Gary Krasner

Last evening, during the Oct 10th broadcast of the PBS News Hour, a devastating attack occurred on the mindset and sensibilities of the correspondents and production staff at the network.

According to reports, a balding, gray-haired man in a business suit wandered past security and into the studio during the segment on Trump’s announcement to roll back Obama’s EPA plan to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

The viewers first saw PBS correspondent John Yang interview Gina McCarthy, Obama’s EPS Commissioner, who was critical of Trump’s plan. This was normal PBS procedure.

But then the crisis became apparent when Yang introduced someone with the opposing view. On occasion, the program will air counterpoint, just enough to show that they’re unbiased.

But when they do, the supposed opposing view is some moderate Republican who often ends up agreeing with his opponent on some of the issues, and then ends up being critical of the Republican president. Some of the more squishy such Republicans appear as regulars. Nothing is left to chance.

Except last night, apparently. Because John Yang next introduced Bob Murray, of the Murray Energy Corporation, for the counterpoint, unaware that Murray is a real conservative.

Murray discussed the merits of coal and fossil fuels generally, including it’s much lower cost for budget strapped consumers.

But it wasn’t until Murray posited scientific challenges to global warming did the staff become alarmed, as it was information that’s been carefully excluded from the program previous to Murray’s slot on the show.

According to reports, regular viewers of the program called to complain. Some of the staff at the News Hour were provided with psychological counseling to deal with the trauma.

My Home and Car Vandalized Because I’m a Conservative Writer

My Home and Car Vandalized Because I’m a Conservative Writer

-By Warner Todd Huston

UPDATE: My son helped set up a GoFundMe campaign to help get another used car to replace the one destroyed.

Over the course of this year someone in my neighborhood has targeted me. At first I thought it was just random vandals as the attacks were penny-ante nonsense, but now I am pretty sure it is being done by someone who knows I am a conservative writer who has a body of work stretching back to 2001 and they are trying to intimidate me.

It started early this year when a flag was pulled off my flag staff and left ripped and in pieces on my lawn.

I replaced the flag imagining it was just local punks acting tough. Weeks later that new flag disappeared.

That’s twice.

Then my garage door was egged.

That is three times.

Still, it was all small-ball stuff and I thought it could just be punks who don’t have any underlying reason to attack me on a personal level.

But then something more specific occurred. On the night of July 1, the U.S. Army flag that I fly in honor of my son who is in the service was scorched and on it was written in marker “die dogs.”

This was a bit more threatening and more specific than just mindless destruction. It seemed directly aimed at the U.S. military and me personally.

That incident added up to four times vandals struck my home. I made a police report after the flag burning just to be on the safe side.

Next, on September 24 another incident was perpetrated against my property, and this one had a specific message, too. Over night someone egged my garage door again but this time they also wrote “racist” on one of the metal panels.

Naturally, as a conservative writer, I write on subjects such as Islam and immigration. they are topics that would goad most liberals to call me such a name. I also have frequently had political yard signs in my yard for the more conservative candidates in my area. So, my home is well known (or at least easily known) as a place where a conservative Republican lives.

As to my writing, I’ve never tried to hide where I live nor written under kitschy Internet names. I have always written under my full, real name. It probably isn’t too hard for someone to find me if they are serious enough about doing so.

At this point, with those two bits of graffiti I began to wonder, is someone was targeting me because of what I do for a living? So, I made a second police report after the garage door incident.

Thus far none of these incidents were really too major but they did show signs of coming faster and picking up in severity.

As an aside, I have no troubles with my immediate neighbors. In fact, our neighbors across the street had been on an extended visit to Mexico for the last several months and the neighbors right behind us just moved in and weren’t even here for much of this vandalism. The other neighbors are two elderly neighbors and a recently arrived middle eastern family I haven’t even really met. I have had no cross words with any of them.

But last night it went into high gear.

At about 1 AM or so on Saturday morning, I was awakened by a noise outside my home. I can’t really say what the noise was as it woke me from a deep sleep. It was just a shout that awoke me. I looked at my window and saw what struck me as a strange light outside. So, I went to the front door…

And saw my car interior on fire…

The surface of my passenger seat was set aflame and the entire interior of the car destroyed. Fortunately it isn’t a new car (it’s a 1999 Oldsmobile 88). But unfortunately, because it is so old I never put it on comprehensive coverage leaving it only at liability coverage. So, insurance won’t cover this destruction and I am now without a car.

Naturally the police became involved, but they say they won’t classify it as arson because they don’t have any evidence to show for it. A plastic pop bottle and cap was left inside by who ever did this. It smelled of gas to me.

Police wondered if I smoked in the car. I don’t smoke cigarettes and only occasionally smoke a cigar but NEVER in a car. If you’ve ever smoked a cigar you know that doing so in a car is a messy, ashy endeavor. I don’t do it. So, there is nothing that should have set my car on fire  7 hours after I last drove it. Also, it was the surface of the seats that went up in flames. Nothing electrical any where near the burn zone.

I firmly believe that this is an attack on me because of my writing.

This is the tolerant left in action. They are trying to intimidate me.

I will not be silenced.

UPDATE Oct. 19

Here is the first try at putting up a surveillance camera. This one looks over the area of most past activity. I plan to put more up soon. But I just wanted all you folks to see that I am making an attempt to begin trying to do what I can to put a stop to this. And as of October 19, no further attacks have occurred.

UPDATE Nov. 19

Over a month out and no repeat trouble since my car was burned. Maybe my camera and warning signs made them think twice, or maybe the car burning was their “brave” big finish. Either way, fingers crossed, no more trouble… which is a good thing.

Let me thank all those on the Internet who posted about this incident. Thanks in no order to Da Tech Guy, RightWingNews, Jeff Dunetz, CanadaFreePress, TruthRevolt, Onan Cocoa at Constitution.com, PJMedia, GraniteGrok, Illinois Review and a host of others.

But, I’d also like to say that this vandalism also shows how the media is sold out to the left. If I were a liberal blogger who had my car lit afire, my story would have been all over the media. I’d have been on every network TV show and I bet tens of thousands of dollars would have been raised to help me recover from the attack. But I am a conservative, so that means I got no coverage from the media.

Here are the Vast Differences Between a Conservative and a Liberal

-By Warner Todd Huston

People often wonder what are the differences between a conservative and a liberal. The simple fact of the matter is that the major difference is that conservatives wonder first what it is they are responsible for and can do to better their own lives, while liberals wonder first what everyone else should be doing for the liberal.

Here are some brief rules of thumb:

  • If a conservative sees a U.S. flag, his heart swells with pride.
  • If a liberal sees a U.S. flag, he feels shame.
     
  • If a conservative doesn’t like guns, they don’t buy them.
  • If a liberal doesn’t like guns, then no one else should have one either.
     
  • If a conservative is a vegetarian, he won’t eat meat.
  • If a liberal is, they want to ban all meat products for everyone.

No, NFL, You DON’T Have an Unassailable ‘Right’ to Protest the National Anthem

-By Warner Todd Huston

There has been a lot of pious talk from these anti-American leftists who now seem to infest the National Football League who say that they “have a right” to protest the national anthem at the start of each NFL game. But the fact is they really don’t.

Thanks to the sham that is America’s liberal besotted system of miseducation, there is a lot of confusion about what our “rights” as Americans are. So, let’s get this straight right now. You have no “right” to behave however you want at work. And if you DO behave however you want, you had better be prepared for consequences including being fired if your boss sees fit.

But, what of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, you ask? Doesn’t that “free speech” thingie give you a right to say whatever you want, whenever you want?

No, not really. At least, not in the way you might assume.

First we need to define what a “right” is. A right is something given to you by your creator, something no one can take away. It is, as the founders said, “inalienable,” or it can’t be alienated from or taken away from you.

However, a right also cannot impinge on someone else. This means that your rights must not require someone else to do something to “give” you your rights. This, for instance, is why healthcare cannot be a right. After all, if healthcare were a right, then a doctor or nurse would be required to treat you no matter what they want to do as individuals. So, if healthcare were a right, then you are necessarily taking away the freedom of choice from a healthcare provider because they would not be allowed to turn away from you or decide to treat you in a different way. Their rights as individuals would be eliminated in favor of your “right” to healthcare.

Since your right cannot force others to act, healthcare cannot be a right. Get it?

Now, let’s get to the national anthem protests sweeping across the NFL.

Pandering? Megyn Kelly Suddenly Says She Left Fox News Because of Trump

-By Warner Todd Huston

Megyn Kelly left Fox News this year with visions of NBC stardom in her eyes. But now, all of a sudden, she is saying she left Fox because of Donald Trump. Is this just pandering, of do you believe her?

Kelly appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show this week to pump her new NBC efforts, but she also made this “admission,” The Daily Beast reported.

Kelly told DeGeneres what made her decide to leave her prominent gig at Fox News after 12 years and join NBC. She said that it wasn’t until she got her own primetime show that she was asked to do “all political” coverage. “I was never a political person,” Kelly said, adding that, “It became clear to me that it wasn’t what I wanted to do.”

She added…

Famed ‘Raging Bull’ Boxer Jake LaMotta Dies at 95

Famed ‘Raging Bull’ Boxer Jake LaMotta Dies at 95

-By Warner Todd Huston

Jake La Motta, the middleweight boxer profiled in the 1980 Robert Di Niro movie, “Raging Bull,” died at 95 Wednesday.

The boxer became a household name in the 1940s over his battles in the ring with Sugar Ray Robinson, fighting Robinson six times but winning only once, according to The San Diego Tribune.

In their final bout, La Motta lost in the 13th round by a decision, but never went down to Robinson’s flurry of punches, a fact of which La Motta was proud.

“Ya didn’t put me down, Ray; ya didn’t put me down!” La Motta crowed after the 1951 match.

The scrappy fighter almost beat Robinson in that last bout, but Robinson turned the tables and outlasted his opponent. “I just ran out of gas,” La Motta later told the media. “It was my last barrage, I couldn’t raise my arms.”

La Motta later joked that he fought Sugar Ray Robinson so many times that he was surprised the experience didn’t turn him diabetic.

As La Motta’s boxing career began to wane he made a deal with organized crime figures to throw a fight to opponent Billy Fox in 1947.But the fight was badly staged and boxing authorities knew the fix was in. La Motta was suspended and fined for throwing the fight.

La Motta later admitted that the whole event was a fiasco.

Why We Must NEVER Forget the Outrage of 9/11!

Why We Must NEVER Forget the Outrage of 9/11!

-By Warner Todd Huston

It has been 13 years since that horrible day in 2001 when terrorism hit America with a vengeance. But many want to forget and pretend it never happened and we already have a generation of kinds just about to, or soon to enter into their teen years who can’t remember what happened on September 11, 2001. It is up to us to keep the memory of that day alive lest we allow it to be repeated.

But how do we approach that remembrance? But looking at an empty word document sitting ready to be filled with my 9/11 remembrance finds words coming slowly and I find it so hard to start this piece.

But I realized why it is so hard for me to start this piece. I am still furious, feelings are still too raw, I still well up when I see video of the towers falling, my heart still stops when I see that heart-wrenching image of bodies falling from windows hundreds of feet in the air. I still get that dark feeling in the pit of my stomach, the same one I felt that morning in 2001.

It’s all still too emotional to write a mere memorial. Words fail me.

White Nurse Arrested for Acting ‘Black’!

White Nurse Arrested for Acting ‘Black’!

-By Gary Krasner

As you’ll see shortly, that is MY headline. And this is the seminal issue of our time. First, watch this video.

It is the story about the nurse in Utah who was arrested after refusing to give police officers a vial of a suspect’s blood because they didn’t present her with a warrant.

It was all over the MSM and internet. Everyone thinks the nurse was right to refuse the detective’s order. I say she was wrong.

Let’s be clear first what happened. You don’t see this on video, but the hospital patient was just previously evading police, and was unconscious.

The detective was ordered by his lieutenant to get a blood sample of the suspect. The nurse in charge would not do it and would not allow it.

When you refuse a lawful order from a cop, you can be arrested. When you refuse an unlawful order from a cop, you can also be arrested.

My advice is to follow any order, unless it will result in bodily injury or death. The nurse was obstructing what seemed like an unlawful order. And she was resisting arrest.

In all likelihood, she will not be charged for the obstruction and resisting arrest, because it seems the police order was unlawful.

Had the nurse followed orders, a judge would have thrown out the evidence as illegally obtained. So the nurse didn’t have to resist, and which could possibly have caused injury for someone, or herself. Ask yourself, WHY DID SHE DO IT?!

I’ve said that too many black motorists have adopted this underclass, anti authoritarianism attitude that you should resist front-line civil authority. It seems this white nurse had that attitude.

Buffalo Soldiers: Will Liberals Attack The Statues to Famous Black Soldiers Who Killed Indians?

Buffalo Soldiers: Will Liberals Attack The Statues to Famous Black Soldiers Who Killed Indians?

-By Warner Todd Huston

In their lust to destroy America’s history, anti-American, Antifa fascists have been attacking Civil War statues, statues to our founders, and even statues to Revolutionary War heroes. In their ignorance, they imagine all these statues are black and white instances of evil. But to prove that history isn’t just a black and white issue, there is the history of the black soldiers of the western armies who became famous killing American Indians. What will these idiots do with statues to the famed Buffalo Soldiers?

It all amounts to a very inconvenient history for these leftist, Antifa thugs.

These leftists think that all American history is evil, certainly. But they pretend that they are sticking up for minorities with their attacks on the tens of thousands of statues and memorials to various historical figures across the nation.

But there are many statues that might pose a particular problem to these disgusting “social justice warriors.” One wonders what these slimeballs who think they are standing up for minorities are going to do with the tricky history of the Buffalo Soldiers?

There are many statues to the famous black soldiers who joined the U.S. Army to fight Indians in the great wild west. Comprising the 9th and 10th Cavalry and the 24th and 25th U.S. Infantry, regiments raised after the Civil War to keep the peace on the frontier.

Hate-Filled, Liberal Sports Writer Stephen Douglas Can’t Even Wish a Trump Supporter a Wonderful Marriage

Hate-Filled, Liberal Sports Writer Stephen Douglas Can’t Even Wish a Trump Supporter a Wonderful Marriage

-By Warner Todd Huston

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Sean Gilmartin is engaged to marry newly appointed Trump TV spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany and apparently Stephen Douglas doesn’t like it.

McEnany announced the engagement by showing her ring in a July 13 Twitter post.

Of course, showing again that liberalism destroys everything it touches, TheBigLead.com’s Stephen Douglas had no interest in the announcement made weeks ago until this month when McEnany turned up as a new spokesman for the president on Trump’s news videos on Facebook.

The hate Douglas has in his black little heart just shines through in his “story” on the matter.

In any case, here is the tweet McEnany first posted way back in July to celebrate the proposal.

That belatedly sent Douglas off into a frenzy of snark to attack both the player and the Trump spokesperson — and by extension all conservatives — in an August 10 post where Douglas suddenly noticed the connection between the player and his intended.

ESPN Pulls Asian University of Virginia Announcer Because His Name is Robert Lee

ESPN Pulls Asian University of Virginia Announcer Because His Name is Robert Lee

-By Warner Todd Huston

If this isn’t the dumbest thing in the news today… According to reports, ESPN pulled an Asian American announcer off the William and Mary at University of Virginia college football game afraid he would enflame racial tensions because, like the famed Confederate General, his name is Robert Lee.

The story was first reported by Clay Travis of the popular sports website OutKickTheCoverage.com.

“To avoid offending left wing idiots,” Travis wrote on August 22, “Robert Lee, the Asian college football announcer, not the Confederate General who died in 1870 and shares a name with him, was switched,” with another announcer.

Travis cited “multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN,” as his source for the story of announcer Lee’s reassignment.

“Is there anything more pathetic than ESPN believing people would be offended by an Asian guy named Robert Lee sharing a name with Robert E. Lee and calling a football game?” Travis wrote.

Atlantic Writer Claims Solar Eclipse is ‘Racist’

Atlantic Writer Claims Solar Eclipse is ‘Racist’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Just ahead of this week’s solar eclipse, a writer for The Atlantic implied that the solar system was “racist” because the path of the eclipse fell across areas of the country filled mostly with white people.

The August 18 piece entitled, “American Blackout,” seems to have been presented without satiric intent and is tagged “science” — not humor — on the left-wing news magazine’s website.

The piece, written by Brooklyn Law School professor Alive Ristroph, began saying that the path of the eclipse falls on white areas of the country, a fact that “presumably” doesn’t prove that the solar system is racist.

On August 21, 2017, a total solar eclipse will arrive mid-morning on the coast of Oregon. It has been dubbed the Great American Eclipse, and along most of its path, there live almost no black people… Presumably, this is not explained by the implicit bias of the solar system.

Presumably? Is there doubt that “the solar system” does not have any sort of racial animus?

Still, proving that literally everything is “racism” to liberals, the author then brusquely brushes aside the obvious truth that the solar system is indifferent to human racial bias and claimed, “Still, an eclipse chaser is always tempted to believe that the skies are relaying a message.”

Are they?

City of Baltimore Removes Four Confederate Statues Under Cover of Night

City of Baltimore Removes Four Confederate Statues Under Cover of Night

-By Warner Todd Huston

In a stealth purging of history, the city of Baltimore removed four Confederate statues from city property under cover of night early on Tuesday morning.

City crews began the destruction of the monuments just before midnight and finished by 5:30 AM, The Hill reported.

The city council quietly approved the removal late on Monday in a unanimous vote.

“It’s done,” Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh told the Baltimore Sun. “They needed to come down. My concern is for the safety and security of our people. We moved as quickly as we could.”

“I did not want to endanger people in my own city,” the African American mayor said. “I had begun discussions with contractors and so forth about how long it would take to remove them. I am a responsible person, so we moved as quickly as we could. ”

The statues removed included a memorial to Supreme Court Justice Roger B. Taney, as well as Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

Sorry, Liberals, You Don’t Get to Have Moral Outrage Over Charlottesville Murder

Sorry, Liberals, You Don’t Get to Have Moral Outrage Over Charlottesville Murder

-By Warner Todd Huston

A monster went to Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend and used his car to kill a pedestrian standing on the street. This criminal deserves the worst the law can do to him not to mention that his name should become a black mark in history. But, liberals don’t deserve to use this creep as their focus for moral outrage or to use him as a weapon to attack “the right” because liberals wasted their moral authority by ignoring the many deaths and other outrages perpetrated by members of the Black Lives Matter and Occupy Wall Street movements.

After literally years, now, of liberals claiming people from “the right” are “dangerous,” “bloodthirsty,” “murderous,” “violent,” and any other label they care to use, the left finally got their monster. But on the way to this ONE guy “from the right” who committed murder, they’ve time and again ignored murderers when they came from within their own ranks.

Before we get to the left’s wasted moral authority, though, we need to clear up so definitions.

There is factually no difference between Nazi-styled racists and the Black Lives Matter movement. Both are racist groups bent on separating their favored races from society and creating a segregated section for themselves. Both constantly spout hate against every race but their own. Both have been responsible for riots, property destruction, and deaths. In fact, BLM is guiltier of such things than any Nazi, Alt-Right, or white supremacist group. But they should be loathed equally, and both denounced as domestic terrorist groups.

Yet, the left will use this James Alex Fields, Jr., as a rallying point to claim that “the right” is dangerous and deserves to have their free speech curtailed.

First, we need to clear up this “the right,” nonsense.
