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.

Girls Softball Team Disqualified from Tournament for Social Media ‘Middle Finger’ Photo

-By Warner Todd Huston

A girl’s softball team in Mechanicsville, Virginia, lost its spot in the Junior League World Series in Kirkland, Washington, this year after a team member posted a photo of some of the girls giving the finger to an opposing team.

The team banned from the tournament was Mechanicsville’s Atlee junior softball team made up of girls between 12 and 14 years of age. Atlee lost its spot in the tournament despite apologizing for the untoward social media photo, the Washington Post reported.

The punishment was handed down after last Friday’s game when six members of the Atlee team were seen giving an opposing team the finger in a photo posted to snapchat earlier that Friday afternoon.

After forcing the team to forfeit, Little League spokesman Kevin Fountain called the photo a violation of the league’s rules of good sportsmanship and said the taunting was enough to cancel the girls’ participation in the tournament.

Naturally, Atlee team manager Scott Currie lamented the league’s decision and said officials went overboard.

Bees are Back: Liberal Environmental Doomsaying Proven Wrong… Again

-By Warner Todd Huston

For years leftist doomsayers in the envirowacko movement have been wringing hands that bees were dying off saying their demise would be the end of the world. But now the bee population is recovering and suddenly envirowackos are just shrugging.

Bees are a very important part of the world’s ecology serving as a chief element in the pollination of plants. But for the better part of a decade bees have been suffering from a syndrome labeled Colony Collapse Disorder, a catastrophic malady that has been killing bees all across the continent.

Scientists still don’t really know exactly what has been causing the bee mass die off, but one thing is sure, it would be a bad thing if the nation’s bee population were to disappear.

Naturally, leftist envirowackos have said the bee problem is the end of days and have made a lot of noise abut how it is all because of corporate America and global warming. But, now it looks like the bee population is starting to recover. So, will the left apologize for their alarmism? Not a chance.

Senate Democrats Delay Witness In Russia Probe Who Would Have Implicated Liberal Operatives

-By Warner Todd Huston

After over a year of Democrats screaming from the rooftops that they want to get down to the truth about Russia, yesterday Senate Dems used a tricky Senate rule to delay the testimony of a key witness because his testimony would have likely implicated a bunch of Democrat operatives.

It looks like a political hatchet job is their real motive, not any search for the truth.

Breitbart News has the story:

Senate Democrats cut short a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, delaying the widely-anticipated testimony of a witness who would have cast aspersion on the company responsible for creating the Trump dossier.

Using a parliamentary maneuver, Senate Democrats invoked a two-hour limit on the hearing before Bill Browder, CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital, could testify on how he was targeted by Fusion GPS and its co-founder Glenn Simpson, on behalf of Russian interests.

So, just what did this Fusion GPS do in this complicated story?

Left-Wing ‘Esquire’ Hit Piece on Curt Schilling Amazing for its Myopia

Left-Wing ‘Esquire’ Hit Piece on Curt Schilling Amazing for its Myopia

-By Warner Todd Huston

A hit piece on the conservative former Red Sox star Curt Schilling in Esquire magazine last month is amazing for its myopic liberalism. The piece conflates the opinion of left-wing sports writers to how “everyone” feels about Schilling, is incredible for its tone deafness, and exhibits a complete lack of introspection by the liberal writer about his own and the sports media’s liberalism.

Written by former Al Jazeera America producer Timothy Bella, the long screed against Schilling is made up of paragraph after paragraph demeaning the star pitcher and sports commentator and seems utterly oblivious to the fact that what it says about its subject’s demeanor can be said, only with reverse political ideology, about every foaming at the mouth liberal sports commentator working today. Introspection seems to be missing from Bella’s repertoire.

There is certainly no mistaking how liberal, Al Jazeera employee Bella feels abut Schilling. He is “racist,” “transphobic,” “unrealistic,” “right-wing,” “offensive,” “bitter,” and maybe even a “Nazi.” And that is just in the first few paragraphs.

Bella also writes the entire article as if his brand of extreme leftism is a middle of the road ideology.

A Likely Outcome for the New Female ‘Doctor Who’ (And it Probably Won’t Be Good)

A Likely Outcome for the New Female ‘Doctor Who’ (And it Probably Won’t Be Good)

-By Warner Todd Huston

The BBC has announced that the next person hired to become “The Doctor” in one of England’s longest running sci-fi TV shows will be Jodie Whittaker (“Broadchurch”). Yes, Jodie as in a woman. After over 50 years, the next Doctor will be a woman. In this day and age, this choice will present particular pitfalls and here is what I think will most likely happen. Hint: it ain’t gonna be good.

First, I should say that I am not against the idea of a woman taking the role. In fact, they had a precursor of the concept over the last few seasons with the Missy/Master character where they had “The Master”regenerate into a woman (The Master is a rival — and quite mad — Time Lord to The Doctor). As far as I am concerned, the woman who filled the role of Missy (Michelle Gomez) did a fantastic turn as the last iteration of The Master. She was wacky, evil, and utterly delicious in the part.

So, I am not necessarily against a female Doctor. Let’s just get that clear before the idiot liberals start calling me a sexist and all the other foolish name-calling they wallow in as a replacement for actual conversation.

But, my guess is, turning The Doctor into a woman won’t be as successful as Missy/Master and it may not even be Jodie Whittaker’s fault.

In fact, my guess is that the show will lose followers and will bottom out in the ratings, and may end up getting canceled if not at the end of Whittaker’s run, maybe one more Doctor later. But, I am guessing that Whittaker will be called “the woman who killed ‘Doctor Who'” for the rest of her life, no matter what else happens.

Let’s put it this way: the potential for disaster is extremely high and it’ll be the fault of social justice warriors, leftists, and brainless PC fans everywhere.

THIS is How UN-American CNN Is: Anchor Mistakes Amer. Nat’l Anthem for French Nat’l Anthem

-By Warner Todd Huston

Showing how un-American CNN truly is, as President Trump wrapped up his visit to Europe on Thursday, he stood with French President Emmanuel Macron to hear each country’s national anthems. But as the American anthem rang out, CNN’s Poppy Harlow thought she heard the strains of the French anthem instead of the “Star Spangled Banner.”

That’s right CNN’s anchor didn’t even recognize our nation anthem.

As she blathered about other things she has no real knowledge about, the band struck up the American anthem and Harlow said, “Let’s just listen in to the French national anthem for just a moment.”

Trump put his hand over his heart — a visual cue to Harlow, at least, if she doesn’t know what our national anthem sounds like.

Someone in the newsroom likely told her in her ear piece that it was the “Star Spangled Banner” playing, not the French “La Marseillaise.”

Then she blurted out, that it was our anthem, not France’s.

But the fact that CNN’s anchor had no idea what the national anthem of her own country sounded like is telling.

Bankrupt Illinois Slams Citizens With 32% Income Tax Hike, More to Come

Bankrupt Illinois Slams Citizens With 32% Income Tax Hike, More to Come

-By Warner Todd Huston

As the state of Illinois edges near becoming the first U.S. state to ever be rated junk bond status, the Democrat-controlled legislature of the bankrupt state of Illinois has just voted to slam its citizens with a hefty 32 percent hike in state income taxes.

After a series of delays as a legislature obviously embarrassed by its own actions dithered, the State House finally approved of the Senate’s override of the governor’s veto with a 71-42 vote burdening the state with a massive tax hike. It was a vote that saw ten of the state’s Republican contingent abandon Republican values and join the Democrats in approval.

Thursday’s vote permanently increases the state’s personal income tax rate from 3.75 percent to 4.95 percent. It also raises the burden on businesses raising the rate from 5.9 percent to seven. It all amounts to a 32 percent hike for the average Illinoisan and a $5 billion tax hike overall.

The new tax hike all the more galling because Illinois already has the highest property taxes in the nation, a fact that often forces retirees out of their homes and fleeing to other states. This is also a situation not lost on the state’s African American population, either. Illinois is witnessing a growing number of its African American citizens moving out of the state with Chicago and Cook County residents leaving at the fastest rate.

John Adams’ Reminiscences of the First Independence Day

-By Warner Todd Huston

John Adams was one of the truly indispensable men among our founding fathers. He was the man that wrote one of the first fully written out Constitutions in human history when he wrote the Constitution of Massachusetts. He wrote a seminal book on government that helped inform the founders of our nation, he was an ambassador to France and other European nations, he was our first vice president, our second president, and more.

In fact, Adams was at the center of one of the incidents that set the tone for our national character. When the Redcoats responsible for the Boston Massacre were put under arrest, John Adams stepped forward to represent the Redcoats in court. Many of his fellow patriots were amazed at this offer, some even incensed at Adams for doing so. But Adams said that the rule of law was far more important than merely making points with the home crowd and the Redcoats deserved to have competent representation.

This Independence Day holiday is an excellent time to revisit one of Red Skelton’s most endearing works: his recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance and what that pledge means.

Through the 40s, 50s, and 60s, Red Skelton was one of America’s most revered funny men. He was everywhere in movies and all across the early TV. Skelton may be little known by today’s newer generations, but he is someone we should never forget for his patriotism and clean humor.

He made quite a splash in 1969 with his personalized pledge of Allegiance.

You don’t get patriotic entertainment like this anymore…

241 Independence Days and Counting, But What Does it all Mean?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Today America enjoys the celebration of 241 years as a nation by noting the day we declared our independence from England. Sadly, that celebration has, for too many, become the “Fourth of July” holiday, a day of picnics, rote parades, “white sales,” and for some a day off work. Of course, we should not and don’t celebrate any “July Fourth” holiday. We celebrate Independence Day, the day we formally separated from our parent nation and took those first unsteady steps into the world as a nation of our own.

So, what is this Independence Day all about? Well, for one thing we celebrate the gifts that our Creator has given us. That’s right, our Founding Fathers started this nation celebrating the gifts of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and those natural rights given to us by God, rights that no man or government can take away from us, rights no man can legitimately prevent us from observing.

Contrary to the God-averse America we have devolved into, the Declaration mentions God, the Creator, or the divine multiple times and the Founders rested their entire claim of liberty and freedom on the claim that no government can legitimately take away the natural rights that mankind should and must enjoy.

History Shows That Most American Political Violence is Perpetrated by Leftists

-By Warner Todd Huston

After a Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer attempted to assassinate Republican members of Congress in Virginia, many on the left began insisting that “both sides” need to moderate their violent political rhetoric. But history proves that leftists are guilty of most of the politically-motivated violence in the U.S

Democrat volunteer James T. Hodgkinson opened fire as Republicans practiced for a charity baseball game, seriously wounding Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), on June 14, 2017. Immediately thereafter, the New York Times blamed Republican “violent rhetoric” for the Democrat shooter’s actions. And as the nation took stock of Hodgkinson’s actions, many voices also called for “both sides” to stop with the harsh political rhetoric. The conceit is that “both sides” are responsible for Hodgkinson’s crime.

No, Fake News Media, Thomas Jefferson is NOT the ‘First President to Have a Muslim Iftar Dinner’

No, Fake News Media, Thomas Jefferson is NOT the ‘First President to Have a Muslim Iftar Dinner’

-By Warner Todd Huston

The media is upset this weekend that President Donald Trump canceled the “White House Muslim Iftar Dinner tradition started by Thomas Jefferson.” But the media is wrong in every respect. Thomas Jefferson never held any Iftar dinner and only three out of 45 presidents ever hosted one, so there is no such “tradition” to cancel.

Amy B. Wang of the Washington Post led the pack with this nonsense that Thomas Jefferson held the “first Iftar dinner” with a June 24 piece entitled, “Trump just ended a long tradition of celebrating Ramadan at the White House.” (If you can’t see the article at the Washington Post, it can be seen at the Greensboro News & Record.)

Once again the claim that Thomas Jefferson held the first Iftar dinner at the White House was trotted out by the Post’s Wang. She recounted the time when the diplomatic envoy from the Bey of Tunis, Sidi Soliman Melli Melli, visited Washington during Ramadan in 1805.

Jefferson invited the envoy to the White House for dinner at 3:30 PM — the time most Washingtonians had dinner in those days. But after he sent the invitation he was told that Melli Melli could not partake of a meal until after sunset because of Ramadan. Thomas Jefferson was faced with two choices: cancel the dinner entirely or simply have the meal later in the evening at a time when his guest could attend. Being a good host and a decent person, Jefferson chose the latter.

But in fact, all Jefferson did was change the time of his meal. He had no intention of honoring Islam. Jefferson simply was not honoring the religion of “the Musselmen” — as he termed Muslims at the time — when he changed the time of the meal. Also, there is no evidence that Jefferson asked Melli Melli what sort of food a “Musselman” would eat, so no special food was prepared to suit a Muslim’s religious needs. Jefferson neither inquired about religious accommodations nor was any made. All he did was move the time of the meal as a courtesy.

Further, Jefferson sent no letters containing proclamations about the meal being an Iftar dinner nor mentioning Islam, he never mentioned such honors in his private papers, and there is no record that he spoke to anyone about his intentions to honor the Muslim practice of an Iftar dinner.

But to the Post’s Wang, that Jefferson had a dinner at all was somehow proof positive that he invented a “tradition” of some sort. And what was the “proof” she presented that it was in Iftar dinner? She quoted the words of liberal historian John Ragosta who gave the scintillating argument, “Yeah, it sounds to me like an Iftar dinner.”

Wang went on to insist there has been a “modern tradition” of having an Iftar dinner at the White House. But in truth, only three presidents in all of American history ever held an Iftar dinner.

Bill Clinton held the first one. His dinner was politically motivated because at the time the growing Muslim-American community was leaning toward becoming a Republican constituency and Clinton was looking to peel Muslim voters away from the GOP.

George W. Bush followed Clinton’s practice of holding Iftar dinners because he wanted to prove that the U.S. wasn’t looking to go to war with all of Islam in the wake of the attacks on 9/11/2001 and the subsequent implementation of the war on terror. His celebration of Iftar was a diplomatic effort.

And, naturally, Barack Obama held them because he had a personal connection to Islam through his childhood growing up in Indonesia and being raised during that time as a Muslim.

But three presidents out of 45 does not make a “tradition.”

Illinois Democrat Sponsors Bill to Kill all White Puppies in State Because They Have White Privilege

Illinois Democrat Sponsors Bill to Kill all White Puppies in State Because They Have White Privilege

-By Warner Todd Huston

Illinois Rep. Julie Stratin of Chicago’s 11th District has introduced a bill to have all state shelters immediately euthanize dogs with predominantly white coats. Stratin says that white dogs represent too much white privilege and she wants to level the playing field for dark colored dogs, the Chicago Tribune Times reports.

Stratin’s bill would ban white dogs from being sold in the state, though on objection from House Republicans, Stratin did add a clause to the bill stating that all white dogs currently living in the Land of Lincoln among private owners could live out their normal life spans and escape being euthanized.

The bill also sets up a pet owner’s registry so that the state can track dog owners to make sure no new white dogs are brought into the state. And a waiting period of three days is set so that state inspectors can affirm that any new dog sold in the state has fur that is 50 percent or less white.

The bill sets up a new office of DoggyID and with inspector’s jobs offering a starting salary of $75,000 a year with full union benefits.

“It’s time that the brown and blacks puppies get much needed relief from this state,” Stratin said on the floor of the House on Thursday. “White dogs in shelters continue to be adopted at higher rates than the minority dogs and as a compassionate society we should move to even the playing field. It’s time to stop this gross white privilege!”

The bill will also fine pet owners $500 for a first time offense of buying a white dog and pet shops will be find $10,000 if they are found non-compliant with the new law.

Illinois Republican House Minority leader Jimmy Dunker praised the bill after successfully cutting its proposed budget from $10 million annually to only $4 million by raising fees for dog owner licenses.

“Illinois is a proud dog state and if we are to govern successfully we must reach not only into the Illinois House but the dog house,” Dunker proudly said.

The bill is headed to the Illinois Senate and will likely be approved by next Thursday. From there it will head to Governor Bruce Runner’s desk.

However, the bill has a murky future once it makes it to the governor. The state’s chief executive said that he will only sign the bill if the economic impact on licensing for pet shops is cut in half, something that isn’t likely in the Democrat-led government in Springfield. Read more

A Reply to ESPN’s Jim Brady on the Network’s Liberal Bias Problem

-By Warner Todd Huston

Recently ESPN’s Jim Brady was unhappy with some o the things I have been writing at Breitbart Sports. He Tweeted a few questions at me demanding that I answer to his accusations. So, this is my reply to his pointed requests…

Over the past year, Breitbart Spots has been hitting cable sports network ESPN pretty hard over the question of its liberal bias. Or, as ESPN ombudsman Jim Brady recently said in a tweet aimed at this reporter, “beating that same dead horse.”

Having had enough of that beating, on Wednesday Brady sent a pair of tweets needling Breitbart for our opinion on the matter. In his tweets, Brady insisted that he was misquoted over his comments in a December 1, 2016, article exploring the perceived liberal bias of the network entitled, “Inside and out, ESPN dealing with changing political dynamics.”

Here are Brady’s qualms about our coverage of the article:

First, I do want to say this: Perhaps I was too glib to state outright that Mr. Brady “reached the conclusion” that there was no liberal bias at ESPN. He most certainly did add some language accepting of the charge of bias. I can admit that I let my feelings about the totality of his piece overshadow his careful lip service to the bias problem. I must allow that he did cover his bases well in his piece last year.

Next, as I promised in my Twitter replies, I will recount his exact quotes, without being diluted by my commentary, to show where he did begrudgingly state that there is some issue with liberal bias at his network.

Hell Hath No Fury Like A Democrat Party Scorned

-By Gary Krasner

Every Democrat allegation since their horribly shocking night of Nov 8 was designed to undermine the Donald J. Trump administration and slow his conservative agenda.

The Saul Alinsky method of constant personal (as opposed to policy) attacks is clearly evident. Assigning defamatory labels (again, instead of arguing policy), for example.

During the campaign, Trump supposedly engendered Hillary’s list of horribles: misogyny, islamophobia, xenophobia, homophobia, racism, and an evil greedy capitalist one percenter.

Also during the campaign, Obama was busy using the national security apparatus and FISA courts to spy on Trump campaign, associates, and supporters.

Trump seemed uncritical of Putin, and his associates had (legal!) business ventures in Russia or with Russians, so that was to be the pretext to make it look proper and justified.

After the election, the illegal surveillance would have been exposed by a President Trump, so the pretext of national security had to be rushed on stage.

TV reality show star Kim Kardashian, the woman who is famous because someone released her sex tape, is now trying to wade into political debates, this time saying that she wants heavier restrictions on America’s Second Amendment rights… but not for her armed bodyguards, of course.

In an attempt to prove that her large posterior isn’t her only asset, Kardashian attempted to show that she understands the anti-gun debate with an all-caps message posted to her website.

As the Daily Caller’s David Hookstead noted, “the message is crystal clear: rich and famous people should have the right to use guns to defend themselves, but it should be insanely hard for everybody else to get their hands on firearms.”

After blathering for several all-caps paragraphs on gun violence, Kardashian got to the nub of her argument with the following: Read more

D-Day Anniversary: For Remembering D-Day With Ike and Reagan

For me, Memorial Day happens twice within a week. The first, the official holiday at the end of May, is quickly reinforced a week later, every June 6: D-Day.

Of all the wartime anniversaries, none strike me quite like D-Day–the invasion of Normandy, the liberation of France, the final push to defeat Nazi Germany. It was June 6, 1944, a date that sticks like December 7, like July 4, like September 11. The mix of extreme sorrow and triumph has been unforgettably replicated on film by Steven Spielberg in the stunning opening of Saving Private Ryan.

What must it have been like to be among those first waves at the beaches? Indescribable, simply indescribable.

Video Shows CNN’s Becky Anderson Appearing to Stage a Muslim ‘Protest’ Against London Terror Attacks

Video Shows CNN’s Becky Anderson Appearing to Stage a Muslim ‘Protest’ Against London Terror Attacks

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new video seems to show a CNN camera crew preparing to film a standup with reporter Becky Anderson and carefully staging a group of Muslims holding signs protesting the London terror attacks to make it look as if London’s Muslims were standing against terrorism.

The video shows CNN crew members carefully placing Muslim-looking people holding pre-printed signs with slogans such as #ForLondon, #TurnToLove, and #ISIS=EnemiesToHumanity. The bearded and scarf-wearing group are urged into a tight grouping after being placed one-by-one on the street to the rear of CNN’s Becky Anderson who is clearly waiting for staffers to finish placing the “protesters,”

As the video begins, it even appears that Anderson herself is motioning to crew members on where the ersatz peace protesters should stand. She then patiently stands by and watches as the placement is carried out.

The resulting staged photos and video then appeared on the BBC and the Associated Press.

A reporter for the Associated Press, Raphael Satter, went even farther saying in a Tweet that, “A group of London Muslims have come bearing flowers and posters saying ‘ISIS will lose’ and ‘Love will win’ across a photo of Tower Bridge.” Nowhere did Satter tell his readers that the “flower bearers” were staged by CNN’s camera crews.

The video was first posted by Mark Antro in London. Antro also noticed that CNN moved the white police officers out of the camera shot and replaced them with Asian officers.

The video of the CNN crew carefully placing the “protesters for peace” smacks of fake news and raises questions about the veracity of everything CNN reports about terrorism, Islam, and the role of peaceful Muslims in today’s overheated climate. Read more

Michigan City Bans Farmer from Farmers Market Because He Opposes Same Sex Marriage

-By Warner Todd Huston

A farmer who lives 20 miles outside the City of East Lansing, Michigan, was just banned from the city’s farmers market because he posted a Facebook post in support of traditional one man/one woman marriage.

Last year, Steve Tennes, who owns a 120-acre farm far outside the city East Lansing city limits, posted a Facebook message opposing gay marriage. He also said he would not host gay wedding ceremonies at his farm. The owners of the farm host birthday parties, weddings and other events on the grounds and they have decided that their religious beliefs preclude them from hosting gay weddings.

But the farmer’s social media post got the city council of East Lansing quite upset, The Daily Signal reports.

So, as a result of the Facebook post, East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows banned Tennes’ Country Mill Orchard from being allowed to participate in the farmers market that it has attended as a seller for the last six years.

East Lansing contacted Tennes last year saying that if he showed up to the last farmers market in August protesters would come to oppose his stance on traditional marriage. But when he arrived to sell his organic apples, peaches, cherries, and pumpkins, not a single protester appeared.

There was no disruption and no problems.

Political Bias or Sloppiness?

Political Bias or Sloppiness?

-By Gary Krasner

On CNN’s State of the Union, with Dana Bash, on May 28, 2017, the topic of Sanctuary Cities was discussed with Sanctuary City Mayor Rahm Emanuel of Chicago.

The definition of a “sanctuary city” is one which allows illegal aliens to reside within its jurisdiction, flouting state and federal immigration laws. And the operative word is “illegal.”

But, the word “immigration” was spoken 8 times, without the prefix “illegal”. “Immigrant” was used spoken 4 times, with the prefix “illegal” zero times, but “undocumented” used only once.

For example, Dana introduced the mayor this way:

“Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is bucking the president’s new orders and he has launched a new ad campaign promising the Windy City will continue to welcome immigrants.”

See? Sanctuary cities are defined as welcoming ILLEGAL immigrants. Welcoming immigrants is what every city does!

Later, Mayor Emanuel said:

Memorial Day Special: What American Troops Are Made Of…

-By Warner Todd Huston

To honor our troops for this year, I am going to share this story about their mettle. What follows are excerpts from remarks by Marine Lt. Gen. John F. Kelly made to the Semper Fi Society of St. Louis on November 13, 2010. While leading his platoon on a combat patrol, Kelly’s son, Marine 1st Lt. Robert Michael Kelly, had been killed in action four days earlier in Sangin, in southern Afghanistan. Lt. Kelly was only 29-years-old.

Giving Thanks for Our Warriors

“Those with less of a sense of service to the nation never understand it when men and women of character step forward to look danger and adversity straight in the eye, refusing to blink, or give ground, even to their own deaths… No, they are not victims but are warriors, your warriors, and warriors are never victims regardless of how and where they fall. Death, or fear of death, has no power over them. Their paths are paved by sacrifice, sacrifices they gladly make… for you….

“Two years ago when I was the commander of all U.S. and Iraqi forces, in fact, the 22nd of April 2008, two Marine infantry battalions, 1/9 ‘The Walking Dead,’ and 2/8 were switching out in Ramadi… Two Marines, Corporal Jonathan Yale and Lance Corporal Jordan Haerter, 22 and 20 years old respectively, one from each battalion, were assuming the watch together at the entrance gate of an outpost that contained a makeshift barracks housing 50 Marines… Yale was a dirt poor mixed-race kid from Virginia with a wife and daughter, and a mother and sister who lived with him and he supported as well. He did this on a yearly salary of less than $23,000. Haerter, on the other hand, was a middle-class white kid from Long Island. They were from two completely different worlds… But they were Marines, combat Marines, forged in the same crucible of Marine training, and because of this bond they were brothers as close, or closer, than if they were born of the same woman.

Never Forget the Many Americans Buried in U.S. Military Cemeteries Across the World

Never Forget the Many Americans Buried in U.S. Military Cemeteries Across the World

-By Warner Todd Huston

“From these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion.”–Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburg Address

As we prepare to celebrate Memorial Day to pause in thanks for the sacrifices made by millions of Americans who died while fighting to preserve freedom, a documentary called “These Hallowed Grounds” reminds us that our war dead are not just interred here at home, but are spread across the world on battlefields almost lost to the memory of far too many of us.

When we think of our military cemeteries, those final resting places of so many American heroes, we usually think of Arlington National Cemetery, certainly. But do we think of the hundreds of American military cemeteries in such places as France, the Philippines, and other nations across the world? Sadly, not many of us do.

If you are like many of us, you may not be very well informed about all the many American cemeteries erected to memorialize our legions of war dead. To correct that deficit the PBS documentary “These Hallowed Grounds” is an excellent way to learn about these bucolic and solemn memorials.

Most Americans know of the World War Two cemetery at Omaha Beach, Normandy, site of one of the 1944 D-Day landings. But there are some twenty-one other cemeteries in eight other countries memorializing our dead from World Wars One and Two and the documentary tells the powerful tale of many of them.

Our many war cemeteries are maintained by the U.S. government’s American Battle Monuments Commission and contain monuments to some 125,000 American war dead. The names of another 94,000 missing soldiers are inscribed into the Walls Of The Missing at these locations and this film takes viewers on an important journey across the world to see and learn about them.

The Civil War General From Illinois Who Helped Create Memorial Day

The Civil War General From Illinois Who Helped Create Memorial Day

-By Warner Todd Huston

A few years after the Civil War as the nation started upon its long road toward reconciliation, rebuilding, and healing the wife of one of the war’s union generals noticed the touching devotion of Confederate widows, wives and their children as each year they came together to place flowers and little flags at the graves of their fallen. Mary Simmerson Cunningham Logan was so moved by the devotion she witnessed that she urged her husband, Illinois General John A. “Blackjack” Logan, to look into creating what was to become Memorial Day.

General Logan was a Senator from Illinois and eventually became a candidate for Vice President on the 1884 Republican ticket, losing to Grover Cleveland and another Illinoisan, Vice President Adlai Stevenson. But before all that Logan was instrumental in creating Decoration Day, the celebration of the nation’s war dead that eventually became Memorial Day.

The following is the general order that Logan issued in 1868.

HEADQUARTERS GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC
General Orders No.11, WASHINGTON, D.C., May 5, 1868

The 30th day of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion, and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village, and hamlet church-yard in the land. In this observance no form of ceremony is prescribed, but posts and comrades will in their own way arrange such fitting services and testimonials of respect as circumstances may permit.

Montana, Hell, Let’s Talk of the Democrat’s LONG History of Political Violence

-By Warner Todd Huston

The fake news media went mad last week when a Republican candidate from Montana got in a tussle with a pajama-boy-like journalist on the eve of Election Day. Across the fake news establishment the media whined about the “violence” inherent in the Republican Party in the era of Trump. But this narrative totally ignores the history of political violence perpetrated by Democrats that goes back well before the Civil War.

The latest incident that got the fake news establishment feeling their oats was when Montana’s Republican candidate for Congress, Greg Gianforte, pushed around a reporter for the UK paper The Guardian on the day before Election Day.

The Guardian’s pajama boy apparently pushed his way into a room with the candidate which sent the latter over the edge. As audio seems to prove, the Republican then initiated a physical altercation that, as pajama boy is wont to tell over and over again, broke the reporter’s glasses.

Gianforte apologized profusely the next day. But despite the cacophony of media condemnation for his actions meant to drive Democrats to the polls to defeat him, Gianforte won his election to Congress with a comfortable margin.

After his election, nearly every single report on the event started something like this report by tax dollar whore NPR (my bold). Read more
