Now They’re Tearing Down Statues of Black Men

from Sara Carter:

Statue of Frederick Douglass — Former Slave and Abolitionist — Torn Down and Damaged in New York

First the confederate flag was taken down across the nation, then statues of confederate soldiers, then statues of anyone with an association to slavery, now…statues of slaves who fought for freedom?

That’s right. The statue of Frederick Douglass, a former slave who fought for abolition and education, was ripped down in Rochester, New York on Sunday. It was removed from its pedestal by unknown vandals and found by authorities nearly 50 feet from its base leaning against a fence next to the Genesee River. The despicable act was carried out on the 168th anniversary of Douglass’s famous “What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?” speech given in the same town in 1852. read more

1,000 Heavily Men and Women march through Park – and it’s OK

I thought the militia was like a four letter word, synonymous with gun-totin red-necks. And I thought they were inherently worrisome and generally up to no good. Is that not how our media and leftist democrats depict them?

Why yes it is – until now. This latest militia isn’t scary, I guess because the 1,000 strong, heavily armed, are “100 percent black.” Don’t kill the messenger – that’s their words – not mine.

And they’re looking for a fight – as in armed conflict. Now how well do you thing something like that would go over if this gang was “100 percent white?”

Not well, I’d imagine.

And need I remind everyone. Race has nothing to do with this. Ignorance, stupidity (not the same thing) and an obvious double standard is what this is all about.

WND Exclusive – Independence Day deaths marked by Divine Providence

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

There were five Founding Fathers who became president. Some would say that, no, in fact there were six. What about John Quincy Adams? Was he not a founder?

No he wasn’t. He was the son of second President John Adams, but was only a child of the Revolution.

The five, in order, were of course George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and James Monroe.

It was Divine Providence that brought all these great men together at this exact place and this exact time in history. It was through acts of Divine Providence that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were crafted and signed. It was Divine Providence that assisted in the founding of our nation. read more

Video Podcast – Did Trump Dump Kushner – Showtime Movie Shows Leftist Bent

by: Brent Smith

Jared Kushner gets the boot?

Well praise the Lord, if true. Both him and his wife have to go. Obviously they’re part of the family… but no more advisory positions for either of them.

Ivanka is a liberal – always has been. So is Kushner. And both have given just pitiful advice to the President – undermining his stated agenda with every piece bad advice.

The movie, Eye in the Sky, was mildly entertaining, but of course these days, had a liberal message. And that message was inadvertently shown that the West has neither the stomach nor will to win a war, if even a single innocent is killed through collateral damage. read more

Be Proud of the Ragged Old Flag

It’s Independence Day. A time for reflection and celebration – of why this is greatest country on God’s green Earth.

A day to fly the flag just a little higher and salute it a little longer.

And worry not if your flag is not in the greatest shape. Fly it proudly – unashamedly! read more

Exercise is Good for the Eyes Too!

A new study offers the first experimental evidence to show exercise can slow macular degeneration
A new study offers the first experimental evidence to show exercise can slow macular degeneration

We know exercise is a good thing. It improves everything from cardiovascular disease to one’s cognitive health. Observational studies have also seen physical activity lessen age-related vision loss, but until now it hasn’t been clear how causal that relationship has been. New research from the University of Virginia (UVA) is offering the first experimental evidence to show how exercise can directly slow, or even prevent, macular degeneration. read more

The OODA Loop may Save Your Life

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

The following is a departure from my normal politically oriented articles, but I think with all the violence popping up everywhere in America, it’s more important than ever to understand and develop situational awareness. It can, quite literally, save your life and the lives of loved ones.

In the video below, Navy SEAL Commander Mark Divine of SEALFIT explains the OODA Loop – Observation – Orientation – Decision – Action, and incorporates it into the Cooper Color System.

The OODA loop is a practiced mindset of constant situational awareness, and the ability to take swift and decisive action from the information collected from that awareness.

This is different from mere paranoia. Situational awareness is more like tactical observation. It’s more than just noticing that there are a bunch of people gathered across the street waiting to cross, or a blue van driving by. It’s more like “Where’s Waldo,” or “one of these things is not like the others.”

Practicing situational awareness can keep you or your loved ones from simply walking out into traffic or prevent you from entering a potentially dangerous or deadly situation or encounter, by merely avoiding it all together.

With practice, one will be able to pick out Waldo fairly quickly – like the guy wearing a trench coat in the middle of summer. And with practice, you’ll find there is almost never a Waldo to find – that everything is the way it’s supposed to be. read more

An Honest Environmentalist Speaks Out

from the Daily Wire:

SHELLENBERGER: On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) (L) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) hold a news conference to introduce legislation to transform public housing as part of their Green New Deal proposal outside the U.S. Capitol November 14, 2019 in Washington, DC. The liberal legislators invited affordable housing advocates and climate change activists to join them for the announcement. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)

On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.

I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.

But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public. read more

There’s No Reasoning with Some Radicals

Give them an inch and they’ll take 500 miles! These fools will never be satisfied. There’s no longer any point in trying to rationally discuss the topic of race, when Lincoln isn’t even good enough.

Univ. of Wisconsin students want Lincoln statue removed: Sure, he was ‘anti-slavery,’ but he wasn’t ‘pro-Black’

No statue is safe

A student group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is calling for the school to remove its popular Abraham Lincoln statue, saying the president who is known as the “Great Emancipator” is a symbol of racism. read more
