Owner, Kirk Lacewell, said that he thought the pooch was carrying a rock or piece of wood.

Scout was carrying the item around the following day when Mr Lacewell noticed that it looked ‘odd’.

How the Tide was Turned in Vietnam

Sometimes we conservatives get sucked into the strangest dialogues. A few days ago was no different.Milwaukee Ald. Vel R. Phillips (second from left with

Speaking to a customer on the phone who was a Vietnam vet, our five minute conversation turned into 30 minutes or more. He told me of his time in country, and he, to this day, can’t understand how we lost.

Well, the memories rushed back to a conversation I had with my son several years ago concerning the same. And although I covered the same material, it was a very different feeling speaking to a boots-on-the-ground veteran than it was setting my son straight.

Here’s why most Americans believe our military was defeated in Vietnam.

When the left speaks of the war in Vietnam, what do they always point to? The big loss – the Tet Offensive – the surprise attack on January 31, 1968 that turned the tide of the war in favor of North Vietnam, who eventually won. At least that’s how the history books, written by academic leftists, recount it.

The ‘68 Tet Offensive is named for the Vietnamese new year of Tet. It is the date of the first new moon of the year. read more

When Was The Real First Thanksgiving? That Depends

On October 3, 1789, America’s first President under the 1787 Constitution, George Washington, issued a historic Thanksgiving George Washington's Thanksgiving ProclamationProclamation.  Congress had instructed him 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.”  This he did.  Many consider this the nation’s first Thanksgiving Proclamation.  But was it?  Well, that depends.

There had been many previous days of a general giving of thanks in America’s history, some bearing little relation to our present holiday.  Many took place long before America was a country, under the reign of the monarchs of England.   read more

Now For the Real Story – of Thanksgiving

The Real Story of Thanksgiving

Every year around this time, most schoolchildren hear the same ol’ Thanksgiving story in their classrooms across the nation. That so-called official story is a heartwarming tale of how the Pilgrims and Native Americans shared a bountiful feast together. But it does not tell the full truth about what really happened on the Plymouth Plantation.

We’re told that the Pilgrims struggled for their survival when they landed in present-day Massachusetts in the 1620’s. Half of the Pilgrims starved to death or went back to England during the first year alone because of harsh winter weather and their lack of proper farming skills. Their chronic food shortages were ultimately resolved when the Native Americans taught the Pilgrims how to plant corn the following spring and together they celebrated their blessings with a huge feast. read more

Break the Welfare system – break the asylum/immigration system – break the election system.

Many of us who follow politics are either familiar with or have at least heard of Cloward and Piven – Richard Cloward and Francis Fox Piven. They were `60s era radicals dressed up as Columbia University professors. Of course we can probably describe most college professors in the same manner.

The famous, or infamous article describing their plan was originally crafted in the 60’s, and re-released in 2015 on The Nation.com
website as part of “The Nation’s 150th Anniversary Special Issue.”

The article is entitled, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.

The essence of their scheme was/is, “A mass strategy to recruit the poor onto welfare rolls would create a political crisis that could result in legislation that brings an end to poverty.” read more

Nationalism is Good or Bad Depending on Who is In Charge

from the American Spectator:

The true nationalists and patriots were progressives — and environmentalists.” So declared an August 2015 article at the website of Think Progress, founded by the Center for American Progress, citadel of the progressive-liberal left.

Back then, nationalism was good to progressives. Now, with Donald Trump having bothered to weigh in, nationalism is bad to progressives. In fact, it’s downright detestable. It’s Hitlerian. It’s Trumpian-Hitlerian. By golly, it’s yet another Trump “dog whistle,” a not-so-veiled clarion call to fellow xenophobes in his neo-Gestapo movement to start constructing concentration camps for the caravan along the southern border.

The latest example of the left losing it are the histrionics and hysterics denouncing Trump’s newest malevolent ism. The list is ongoing: nationalism, patriotism, populism, sexism, chauvinism, lookism, ageism, white-maleism, vegetarianism. The Donald steadily stirs up a toxic witch’s brew — a dab of fascism, a sprinkle of Nazism, a smattering of racism. Whatever the left can sniff out for its agitprop du jour. read more

Trump is Constitutionally Correct in Ending Birthright Citizenship

The subject of birthright citizenship is once again in the news. President Trump says he intends to sign an Executive order ending the practice. Leftists and faux-constitutional scholars are up in arms. What a shock.

CNN writes that, “Such a step would be regarded as an affront to the US Constitution, which was amended 150 years ago to include the words: ‘All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States.’”

In 2015, then candidate Trump exclaimed his desire to deport all illegal aliens. In rebuttal, Robert Tracinski at The Federalist  argued that deporting birthright citizens would be a direct assault on the Constitution and “the thousand year history of English common law.”

Tracinski explained that at the time of the founding, America embraced birthright citizenship – that “for the Founders, rejecting jus soli or birthright citizenship would have meant either greatly restricting the growth and expansion of the new nation or, more likely, creating a system in which there was a large and growing subpopulation of people who were disenfranchised in the land of their own birth. An idea totally incompatible with a government based on the consent of the governed.” read more
