Pro-Communist Protesters don’t Really Care about Slavery

There is nothing good about slavery. Owning another human being is lower than low. I would hope we can all agree.

We on the reasonable right knew that this push to expunge slave owners from American history would not end with Civil War statues, monuments and the like. We knew these radicals wouldn’t be satisfied with just Civil War era slave holders. We knew it would rapidly jump to the Founding Fathers (as it has),– the same Founders that the progressive left has been trying to erase since the days of Woodrow Wilson.

We also know that it won’t end with the slave-owning Founders. We know that this is a means to an end. If our political leadership – locally, and at the State and Federal level, continue to capitulate to, or worse, join these ill-guided rabble-rousers, the next demand will be to insist that our founding documents are, by default, illegitimate.

If Washington, Jefferson, Madison, et al, are erased, how could the documents they created live on?

The supposed protesters don’t really care about slavery. If they did, they would be forced to take a good long look at the ideology they are promoting. Communism has enslaved many millions more people than all American slave holders/traders combined. read more

After years of digging and research, paleontologists have identified a new species of dinosaur – and it seems to be the largest land animal to ever walk the Earth. Over 150 bones from at least six individual animals were found in a dig site in Argentina, and from those scientists were able to estimate their body mass, age, and the environment the beasts came from. read more

Boston Red Sox May Fold to Racial Pressure

Although not a native New Englander, I’ve lived up here for a lot of years. I walked Yawkey Way. I’ve listened to plenty of Boston Talk Radio including when Jay Severin was local and Howie Carr. They often discussed local Boston and Massachusetts politics. Not once in my time in New England have I heard what they are describing as a major racial issue. This is new and it’s ridiculous identity politics.

from the Blaze:

The Boston Red Sox may want to change the name of Yawkey Way. You already know why.

The Boston Herald on Thursday reported that Boston Red Sox principal owner John Henry will make an effort to change the name of Fenway Park’s Yawkey Way in a play to avoid being “haunted” by the racist legacy of Tom Yawkey. read more

The Alt-Right is Not Right – It’s Left

What exactly is the Alt-Right? We hear the term batted about a lot recently.

In November, 2016, USA Today, or McPaper (h/t: Jay Severin) attempted to explain the alt-right movement. “The alt-right — short for “alternative right” — is a movement that bucks mainstream conservatism,” writes USA Today. I guess it does!

They add that, “The Southern Poverty Law Center, an anti-hate organization, says the group’s main focus is ‘white identity’ and to preserve ‘western civilization,’ but how they go about calling for that is broad.”

Allow me to more accurately phrase that last sentence. The Southern Poverty Law Center, a black separatist group with a butt-load of cash (an operating budget of $45 million and an endowment in excess of $300 million), who labels every group who doesn’t tow their radical line as a hate group, defines the alt-right as focusing on white identity, or white nationalism.”

If this is the case, and it appears to be, the Southern Poverty Law Center, has by its own definition, proven that the alt-right isn’t right at all. It also disproves the claim that the group could even be remotely tied to “conservatism.” One of the pillars of conservatism is “The Golden Rule,” which automatically precludes white nationalism or racial supremacy of any kind.

According to McPaper, the white nationalist/supremacist Richard Spencer coined the term in 2008. If he uses the term alt-right to identify himself and his fellow believers – this begs a question? read more

WND Exclusive – Give us your tired … tired of feudalism, socialism

By now virtually everyone with any political interest – aka us – have seen the heated exchange between Senior White House Adviser Stephen Miller and CNN’s Jim Acosta regarding immigration and the Statue of Liberty.

As has been the case recently, CNN “reporters” are sent to the White House briefings to be antagonists – not to report. Acosta clearly had no interest in acquiring any information disseminated by Miller. He was there to preach and filibuster, while always on alert for a “gotcha” moment. This is the present-day job of the liberal Washington press corps. read more

Bird-Like Dinosaur Found

A colorful bird-like dinosaur that was almost as big as a man has been identified by scientists.

The blue and beige feathered creature stalked the Canadian ‘badlands’ of Alberta 71 million years ago.

Its remains had been dug up over the years in what is now Red Deer River Valley, a famous dinosaur graveyard, but it’s only now that a true picture of it has emerged.

The study suggests that more detailed studies of fragmentary fossils may reveal more, currently unrecognized, species.

A Living Constitution Provides No Stability

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I’ve written a lot regarding the Constitution over the years – although not usually two days in row. Most times the topic boils down to a choice between the stability of originalism or the chaos of the co-called “living document.” This has been a great debate since the dawn of the progressive era.

In 2006 Elliott Mincberg, the vice president of the ultra lefty group “People for the American Way” said: “It was the framers intent that the Constitution would adapt to changing circumstances.” In other words, a living Constitution.

Most would be surprised that, in my opinion, the founders would agree with Mr. Mincberg – although I guarantee they would not agree with his method of change.

That same year Todd Gaziono of the Heritage Foundation said: “Original intent is the only legitimate means of interpretation under our written Constitution and all other philosophies are illegitimate.” Mr. Gaziono is also correct.

Okay, both can’t be correct. Obviously the “living Constitution” crowd is wrong because, as we all know, the left has no desire to amend the Constitution. They instead see fit to usurp the Constitution by means of laws, court precedents and presidential decrees.  read more

Treat the Constitution Like the NFL Rulebook

by: the Common Constitutionalist

What does it mean when we right-wingers describe ourselves as conservatives? What is it that we are trying so hard to save, preserve or prevent the loss of – which is what conserve means. Those on the left would say we wish to conserve the days of slavery and Jim Crow – or maybe the white-old days of the 1950s before the Civil Rights movement.

Despite the fact that all those bad times were born of the left in this country, we conservatives wish to reestablish and conserve America’s original set of governing rules.

Our nation was founded on a set of ideals – the Declaration of Independence, and rules – the Constitution. Yet Americans today seem only to care about some rules, but not others. We demand absolute adherence to some rule books, while all but ignoring others.

As most of my readers know, I’m a huge fan of the NFL – particularly the New England Patriots, but also just a lover of everything pro-football. (Don’t hate me just because your team isn’t as good).

On many occasions, I’ve witnessed that we, at least we football fans, will have a nationwide collective meltdown, if say a player commits a penalty and gets away with it late in the fourth quarter of a close game. Fans take to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to vent their spleens over a flagrant violation that goes unpunished and may cost their team the game. read more

Surviving After All Else Dies

In about 5 billion years’ time, our Sun will use up its reserves of hydrogen and begin to cool down and expand, cooking the Earth in a miasma of heat and radiation. Given our current trajectory, humans will probably be long gone by then anyway, but at least one lifeform will likely still be plodding along: the utterly unkillable tardigrade. According to a new study from Harvard and Oxford, it’ll take nothing short of the death of the Sun to finally do the species in – which bodes well for the resilience of life as a whole. read more
