  • 5 Ways You Can Fight Back In The Cultural Civil War; Practical Ideas on how to oppose the radical agenda of the woke left

    The Federalist ^ | 07/02/2020 | John Daniel Davidson
    Last week I wrote about how we’re in a cultural civil war and it’s time for conservatives—and really, anyone who’s not on board with the radical anti-American agenda of Black Lives Matter and the rest of the woke left—to fight back.But how? I was light on specifics, and subsequently heard from a number of readers who wanted to know what they could do, personally, to push back against the leftward lurch of the culture. Many said they feel powerless and overwhelmed, and with good reason.Silicon Valley, Hollywood, academia, the mainstream media, corporate America, and the entire Democratic Party (along...
  • Editorials: Archbishop Hughes and the Pope; The Palaver Over the Park (7/2/1860)

    The Catholic Archbishop of New-York, having recently distinguished himself by an offer to die on the scaffold rather than register the names of the couples he married, has now come forward to explain to his faithful people how divine a thing is the right of Popes to govern wrong and to beg the money of American citizens for the support of a Government which has filled its prisons with political captives, makes the sale of the Scriptures a felony, and hires foreign mercenaries to compel with the bayonet the love, and fidelity of the subjects committed to its care, as...
  • FAKE HISTORY: USA Today Pretends Democrats Didn’t Found the KKK, Start Civil War (They Did)

    Newsbusters ^ | 07/01/2020 | Scott Whitlock
    Apparently, if you don’t like certain facts, you can just declare them false. That seems to be the thinking behind a USA Today “fact check” pretending that Democrats didn’t start the Civil War and found the KKK. But, they did. In a June 30 assertion USA Today rated “false,” the paper began, “Claim: The Democratic Party started the Civil War to preserve slavery and later the KKK.” The entire article essentially conceded that the Confederacy was run by Democrats, made up by Democrats, as was the KKK. But don’t blame the Democratic Party for that! USA Today writer Devon Link...

    The next election is now about four months away, and some commentators are saying things are going to get nasty. Words that come to mind as I read this are devilish, ugly, anarchy, orchestrated chaos, insurrection, planned wickedness, incitement of trouble, weaponized Antifa terrorists, Black Lives Matter, and others. Liberal Democrats (Pelosi, Schumer), Planned Parenthood, gays, etc., are desperate to retake the White House and prevent the loss of another seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. Powerful globalists (Soros, Kissinger, Clinton, etc.) are passionate about world government, and they want to continue the surrender of America to meet the UN...

    On Wednesday evening last the Republicans of Portland, Me., welcomed home their Congressional delegation. Mr. MARK H. DUNNELL spoke on behalf of the citizens of Portland, and Hon. HANNIBAL HAMLIN responded for the delegation. He said: SIR: In behalf of the Maine Delegation you will receive our sincere and grateful acknowledgment for the kind and generous terms in which you have spoken of their official acts. And through you we would also tender to our friends present, who have given to us so cordial a welcome, our heartfelt thanks. It was always pleasant to get away from the cares and...
  • Can Anyone Tell Me Why FoxNews is Broadcasting an Anti-American Message of Hate on July 4th by Nation of Islam Cult Leader Louis Farrakhan?

    nteb ^ | 6/29/2020 | Geoffrey Grider
    So let me see if I have this right. At this very moment, when America is being torn apart in a vicious race war planned and carried out by the radical Left, the supposed conservative news station, Fox, is going to feature race-baiting hate preacher Louis Farrakhan in a ‘sermon’ vilifying the United States. On July 4th. Are you kidding me? If you recall, we warned you way back in 2017, the year I stopped watching Fox, that they had gone Liberal to an extreme. Fox News is just as fake as all the rest. This absurd message of hate...

    One of the largest political meetings ever held in Kings Country was held by the Republicans last evening, in City Hall Park, to ratify the nominations made by the Republican National Convention at Chicago. A few rockets, a calcium light and a band of music, aside from the speaking, were all the attractions offered to induce a large attendance. At the stand in the Park the meeting was organized by electing GEORGE FIELD, Esq., of the Thirteenth Ward, Chairman, and the usual number of Vice-Presidents and Secretaries. During the meeting the "Wide Awake" Battalion of the Rocky Mountain Club arrived,...

    Special Dispatch to the New-York Times. The Presidential canvass has at last fairly opened. The several political parties have taken their ground, all the candidates are in the field, and it is not difficult to foresee the result. The Republican ticket is morally certain to be elected. Strong in the public sentiment of the Free States, the Republican Party derives an immense advantage from the disruption and utter demoralization of its opponents.

    Special Dispatch to the New-York Times. BALTIMORE, Sunday June, 24. We have assurances from persons who ought to know that both BRECKINRIDGE and LANE will accept their nominations by the Convention of seceders. It is the game of the Southern wing to defeat an election by the people and carry it into Congress, where they think they are reasonably certain of electing BRECKINRIDGE. The Douglas men here speak openly of preferring LINCOLN's election to such a result. YANCEY and other extremists are delighted at the prospect. They say that they can either elect BRECKINRIDGE in the House and thus perpetuate...

"I said," Newsome told the host, "if this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking ... figuratively.

    Special Dispatch to the New-York Times. BALTIMORE, Friday Evening. A good part of this, the fifth day of the Convention, has been spent in parliamentary manoeuverings, intended to gain time. When they finally got to work, the minority report was rejected, first as a whole, and then piecemeal, the Georgia case alone forming an exception. The majority report was then adopted, and the decks were cleared for action. All interest was concentrated upon the active members of the New-York delegation, who retired four times for consultation, each resulting in a diminution of Douglas strength. A mysterious announcement on the part...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Tennessee Department of Transportation has “respectfully denied” the Metro Council’s request to block the Nathan Bedford Forrest statue on Interstate 65. The council approved a resolution to ask TDOT to plant trees blocking its view to the public on July 8. The statue, which is surrounded by Confederate flags, sits on private property near the Harding Place exit. Monday, the department sent the following statement to News 2: TDOT does not plant foliage on its right-of-way with the sole intention of blocking items on private property based on what might be offensive to some and...

    Just south of Nashville, Tennessee, along Interstate 65, there sits a statue of Nathan Bedford Forrest riding on horseback, surrounded by Confederate battle flags. For those with little more than a passing interest in American history, Forrest may be only known to you as the person after whom Forrest Gump was named in the movie. Others will know that he was a Confederate general and the first Grand Wizard of the KKK. It’s been sitting there on private land since 1998, but given recent events you can imagine that it’s become the target of renewed political interest. The Metro...

    A bid by Tennessee’s governor to remove a bust of Confederate cavalry general, slave trader and early Ku Klux Klan leader Nathan Bedford Forrest from the state Capitol building was rejected Friday. The State Capitol Commission voted 7-5 against issuing a petition to moving the bust from the Capitol to the new state museum being built nearby. It would have been the first step in a lengthy process laid out by Tennessee’s “Heritage Protection Act” that limits the removal or changing of historical memorials on public property. Republican Gov. Bill Haslam called for the removal after last month’s deadly white...

    (CNN) The remains of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and his wife will be removed from a Memphis park where a monument of him once stood. The decision to move their remains came after the Sons of Confederate Veterans, a non-profit organization of male descendants of Confederate veterans, agreed to drop a pending lawsuit against park owners
