    Although completely ignored by the major news networks, President Donald Trump signed into law on Thursday legislation to establish the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission, which will make plans to honor the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), a slave who escaped to freedom and became a leading orator, abolitionist, writer, publisher, and statesman. Douglass was a Republican who often criticized the slavery-supporting Democratic Party. "It is not true that the Republican Party has not endeavored to protect the negro in his right to vote," said Douglass in an 1888 speech. "The whole moral power of the party...

    In these willfully ignorant, fiercely partisan times, let’s recall that we fought our bloodiest war to end human bondage. Almost three-quarters of a million Americans died in a complex struggle that began to right an inexcusable injustice. Now we’re re-fighting our Civil War with neo-Stalinist, fact-purging propaganda that makes cartoon villains of the dead. We rush to tear down statues of men we refuse to understand. We rob one group of citizens of their heritage to please another. And the president’s chief of staff cannot state facts about our history without triggering mob-rule outrage from those who could not even...

    A Georgia woman and her fellow Delta passengers were prevented from singing the National Anthem as crews unloaded the casket of a fallen soldier at Atlanta’s airport last weekend. Pamela Dee Gaudry was on a flight toward Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport when she learned the body of a fallen soldier – 29-year-old Army Staff Sgt. Dusting Wright – was on her plane. Gaudry, the wife of a deceased Army captain, wanted to honor the Special Forces soldier who was among four U.S. troops killed in an attack in Niger on Oct. 4, by singing the National Anthem. She went around the...

    On Sunday, a shooter opened fire from the 32nd floor of a hotel in Las Vegas on a country music festival below, killing at least 59 and injuring hundreds. Of those shot and hospitalized was Thomas Gunderson. Then, on Wednesday, President Donald Trump and Melania flew to Las Vegas to meet with victims and came across Gunderson in the hospital. The next moment that was captured and posted on Facebook is something he will likely always remember. As the president and first lady entered his room, Gunderson stood up, despite being shot in the leg to greet the two with...

    This coming Sunday at every house of religious worship and Sports Event and Sports Cafe/Bars across the entire USA, the American people should join together and sing out "God Bless America" in prayer, honor, respect, love, and remembrance of those innocent Americans, killed, slaughtered, wounded and injured, by an insane, nutcase, whose heart and soul where filled with hate of the American people and the American nation. At Sporting events, after the national anthem, the "Star Spangled Banner" is played, it (God Bless America) should be immediately sung by all, following the anthem. Forget the NFL, it is dead-on-arrival, no...

    The Los Altos Town Crier ^ | 9/27/17 | Bruce Barton
    The small plaza was festooned with miniature American flags. Mariam Kubursi, 11, delivered a stirring rendition of the National Anthem. Most of the approximately 75 people in attendance placed right hands across their hearts as American Legion members stood motionless in military salute. It was a fitting start to the Sept. 19 dedication ceremony for the renaming of the plaza at Main and State streets in downtown Los Altos. The Los Altos City Council in July 2016 approved a request from veterans and their supporters to change the name of Community Plaza to Veterans Community Plaza. “Today, Los Altos joins...

    Police say an Ontario man wanted on a Canada-wide second-degree murder warrant in the killing of his girlfriend has fled to the U.S. and they are investigating a Reddit post purporting to show the murder suspect confessing to the crime. Waterloo Regional Police responded to a 911 call at 38 Country Hill Drive around 3 a.m. April 28 in Kitchener, Ont., where they found the body of 22-year-old Melinda Vasilije suffering from multiple stab wounds after a “targeted” attack. Investigators focused their attention on Vasilije’s boyfriend, 24-year-old Ager Hasan of Hamilton, as the lead suspect in her death and said...

    The United States could be on the verge of posthumously awarding its highest military honor to a soldier who was killed in action in Afghanistan – and the news is stirring controversy. Sgt. John Chapman, an air force technician who was serving as a radioman for the elite SEAL Team 6 during mission in Afghanistan, died in fierce combat against Al Qaeda gunmen on an Afghan mountaintop on March 4, 2002. The Americans led a coalition of nations in the military effort to destroy Al Qaeda and the Taliban following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

    Folks, I am sick of being told by people on our side to walk-on-eggshells when pushing back against Leftist activist's superaggressive attacks on our traditions, values, and heroes. Consequently, we continue to allow Leftists to demonize good guys and urinate on everything Americans have held dear for decades. Whenever we say no to Leftist's attacks on our culture, the mainstream media runs to attack us with the Left's red-hot branding iron. They burn an “H” in the middle of your forehead, marking you a hater. Case in point: The horrific epidemic of assassinations of police caused by Black Lives Matter...

    Lt. Col. Charles S. Kettles, an Army helicopter pilot during the Vietnam War, will be awarded the Medal of Honor in a ceremony later this month for an act of heroism almost 50 years ago. At the time he was given the Distinguished Service Cross, but a dedicated amateur historian finally talked the Department of Defense into reviewing the matter. Following an act of Congress and a Presidential signature (required for Medal of Honor awards), Kettles will receive his new medal in a July 18 ceremony at the White House.
