    She was back. Back where she was held captive. Back where she feared she would never see her family again. Back in Imperial County, California. But this time she had shifted from defense to offense. In 2002, Elizabeth Smart made headlines when she was kidnapped from her bedroom in Salt Lake. Smart, only 14 at the time, spent nine months held captive in the mountains near her familys home and later in Imperial County, California, which is where she returned 12 years later for a special mission with Operation Underground Railroad.

    There are some knee-jerk reactions to the seemingly "political correctness run amok" move to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, replacing President Andrew Jackson. But the replacing of the slave-owning founder of the Democratic Party with a gun-toting black Republican may spark a political debate worth having and unearth historical truths worth learning. As PJ Media described the announcement: The first woman on United States bank notes will be the famous abolitionist and Republican Harriet Tubman, Politico reported Wednesday. She will give the boot to the nation's sixth president and a major figure in the Democratic Party, Andrew Jackson,...
  • Falsehoods and Feel-Good Myths About the Underground Railroad and Harriet Tubman

    04/20/2016 10:18:38 AM PDT · by golux · 33 replies
    By making explicit or implicit connections between the Underground Railroad and Tubman's trips, and by depicting Tubman as an Underground Railroad superstar, the textbooks imply that the paramount purpose of the Underground Railroad was to launch slave-stealing expeditions. That is false. The Underground Railroad was not in the business of staging raids, and Tubman's excursions were idiosyncrasies at best. (...) The salient points that occur again and again in the textbooks' accounts of Tubman -- such as the claim that she made nineteen trips to liberate slaves, and the claim that slave-owners put a huge price on her head --...

    Taxes may be as certain as death, but they've changed a lot. Over the centuries, governments have levied taxes on everything from facial hair to the right to cover up—and officials accepted payments of beers, beds, and even broomsticks. Here, from history, are a few taxes we’re glad to not have to pay anymore: Rome's Toilet Tax Ancient Romans valued urine for its ammonia content. They found the natural enemy of dirt and grease valuable for laundering clothes and even whitening teeth. And like all valuable products, there was a scheme to tax it. Emperor Vespasian (r. A.D. 69-79) earned...

    During Sen. Bernie Sanders' campaign visit to Liberty University, he told the students that our nation was created on racist principles. Students at a Christian-based university, such as Liberty, do not often hear the founders-as-racists argument. But it is featured at many other universities, as well as primary and secondary schools. Most often, the hate-America teachings are centered on the fact that slavery is a part of our history. What is left untaught is: Slavery was a routine part of human history. Blacks were the last people to be enslaved. Plus, our Founding Fathers struggled mightily over the issue of...

The reason for his incoherence is that he fails to understand that the issue boils down to two questions: Is the unborn human? and What gives humans value? Had he properly framed the issue he would not have written such an incoherent defense of abortion rights in a recent nationally syndicated column titled Can You Be Pro Choice and Anti Abortion? Pitts uses a tactic employed by many in the pro-choice movement. He denounces the pro-life tactic of displaying pictures of dismembered fetuses...

The 1B Indian population was "offended" and lashed out in various outbursts. We pride ourselves in being free and open. On another note, we seem to be completely blind to some glaring inside issues in the India IT services industry and how it grinds the brightest of brains into slave-level drudgery. The biggest manifestation of this modern-day slavery is the H1B Visa game played by the large multi-billion dollar firms.On April 1, 2015, the USCIS received...

[] The shield was approved in 1937 and depicts three bundles of wheat. Its modeled after the family crest of slaveholder Isaac Royall Jr., who donated his estate to create the first law professorship at Harvard. Royall inherited his estate and many slaves from his father, a slaveholder who was known for his cruelty.

    On March 6, 1857, the Supreme Court handed down its decision in the Dred Scott case, which had a direct impact on the coming of the Civil War and Abraham Lincolns presidency four years later. The case of Dred Scott v. Sandford was one of the most controversial decisions in the courts history. At the time, the Supreme Courts majority came from pro-slavery states or had connections to pro-slavery presidents. The case had been in the court system for more than a decade. Scott had been born into slavery in 1795. In subsequent years, he lived in two parts of...

Last Monday, on what would have been George Washington's 284th birthday, Milloy visited our first president's home, Mount Vernon.  And unlike the rest of us, who embrace the everyday tolerances of the 21st century such as generations of accepted interracial marriage – and newly established gay nuptials – only Mr. Milloy is surprised that the slaves' contributions are honored with a special...

    President Barack Obama signed a bill Wednesday that includes a provision banning U.S. imports of fish caught by slaves in Southeast Asia, gold mined by children in Africa and garments sewn by abused women in Bangladesh, closing a loophole in an 85-year-old tariff law that has failed to keep products of forced and child labor out of America. An expose by The Associated Press last year found Thai companies ship seafood to the U.S. that was caught and processed by trapped and enslaved workers. As a result of the reports, more than 2,000 trapped fishermen have been rescued, more than...

    We can ascend into freedom. But we must engage in local politics. Get involved and hold on--fiercely In the 1600s David Hitchborn migrated to America and spent his life in servitude. Within four generations, the family became free property holders, business owners and respected burghers. By 1734, David’s great-great grandson, patriot Paul Revere was born into the influential Boston family. This is the classic American saga of the rise from serfdom to freedom. Yet today, American freedom is in reverse. The choices bred from our forebears’ sacrifices are swirling down a cultural cesspit of renewed servitude. From Wilson’s progressivism and...

    In May, the History Channel will air its remake of Alex Haley's Roots: The Saga of An American Family. Unsurprisingly, the advertising for the broadcast fails to mention that Roots is a fake, and a fake of the first order. First of all, the book upon which the successful mini-series was based was actually authored by Murray Fisher, Alex Haley's editor from Playboy magazine. Secondly, Roots wasn't just ghost-written: it was plagiarized: In 1978, Judge Robert Ward concluded that Haley had stolen the idea for Roots from Harry Courlander, the white man who authored The African. Courlander charged Haley with...

    Abraham Lincoln told an 1864 audience that "the world has never had a good definition of the word 'liberty.'" Different people can define liberty in different, even contradictory ways, so that both sides in a conflict can claim to the mantle of liberty. That was exactly the situation in the Civil War: Slaveholders defined liberty in such a way as to make themselves the guardians of liberty... The South's liberty was the liberty to hold other people as chattel slaves. What the slaveholders called liberty, the North quite rightly called tyranny; namely, the systematic deprivation of the natural rights of...

    A proposal allowing Utah to execute someone convicted of human trafficking even if the criminal didn't actually kill the person would be unjust, costly and likely unconstitutional, opponents of the death penalty argued Tuesday. The bill from Rep. Paul Ray, R-Clearfield, would make human trafficking a capital crime in Utah if the victim dies. Under current state law, someone convicted of trafficking that results in a victim's death faces five years to life in prison. Ray said trafficking is a terrible crime, and the state has to do something to try and deter it. [...] The American Civil Liberties Union...

She's specifically staking out a position against concubinage and slavery within Muslim society. The exception is when Muslims attack non-Muslims and take female prisoners. The fact that this is a moderate position says all you need to know about Islam. The video was translated by Memri.

    At a commercial break in the Demonrat debate, You Tube showed a little speech by Hillary where she began talking about opioid addiction and the drug problem. She called for federal money for programs and said police need to always have an antidote for opioid overdose with them at all times m She ended this short NBC produced spiel by saying drug use needs to cease being a criminal issue and be put where it belongs, as a health issue.

    "As strip malls go, the one you seek is nondescript, all brick exterior and maroon awnings, but there's safety in this disguise, a sense of legitimacy that comes with this out-in-the-open location. ***snip*** According to a 2014 study by the liberal-leaning think tank Urban Institute on the underground commercial sex industry in eight U.S. cities, the total industry--inclusive of Asian massage parlors, brothels, street-level prostitution and other sources--fetched between $39.9 and $290 million in 2007, depending on the city. This demand led to the opening of nearly 600 new illicit massage parlors in the U.S. from 2011 to 2013, pushing...
  • Taliban Like Attitudes in American South

    The world cringed when the Taliban destroyed ancient Buddhist Statues in Afghanistan. The Taliban destroyed the historic artifacts because Buddhist statues represented something the Taliban considered immoral. They didn’t want people to be reminded that people in the region had at one time been involved in something that was no longer considered morally acceptable. Buddhist statues were not “politically correct” under the Taliban’s view of the Muslim religion. Allowing the statues to stay advertised that Afghans had once behaved in what the Taliban regarded as an immoral fashion. Recent reports claim that ISIS may be doing the same thing to...

    Ever since the miniseries "Roots" was shown on ABC in 1977, Americans have demonstrated a keen interest in finding out more about where they came from and the names and circumstances of their ancestors. Harvard University Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. is fulfilling that longing in the latest installment of the PBS series "Finding Your Roots." Next to "Downton Abbey," which is again drawing large audiences in its sixth and final season, Gates' program (premiering Jan 5) is the best and most compelling television you will ever see. The greatest contribution of this show is that it helps viewers see...

Simmons spoke Thursday at an event organized by horse carriage opponents. The Wall Street Journal reports that he likened horse carriages to slavery, ethnic cleansing and "people who put people in ovens."
  • 'Star Wars' and Slavery: A Quandary Awakens

    If you're opposed to slavery, is it OK to still like "Star Wars"? It's a question I've been wrestling with ever since Jonathan Last, a friend and writer at the Weekly Standard, pointed out to me that the "droids" in the "Star Wars" movies are slaves. Unlike a lot of the ridiculous "Star Wars" revisionism in recent years -- much of it ushered in by Last himself when he argued that Darth Vader & Co. are in fact the good guys -- Last's case that droids are slaves strikes me as nearly incontrovertible. I'd hoped to be persuaded otherwise when...

    On Monday, the Associated Press reported that "Sweet Cakes by Melissa" owners Melissa and Aaron Klein paid their state-ordered damages to a lesbian couple with check totaling $136,927.07 - but that isn't the whole story. According to Fox News writer Todd Starnes, who spoke with Melissa Klein a few weeks before Christmas, Oregon's Bureau of Labor and Industries confiscated all of the money in her checking and savings accounts, including one that had money set aside for her church tithe. They totaled nearly $7,000.

    Islamic State theologians have issued an extremely detailed ruling on when "owners" of women enslaved by the extremist group can have sex with them, in an apparent bid to curb what they called violations in the treatment of captured females. [Snip] Among the religious rulings are bans on a father and son having sex with the same female slave; and the owner of a mother and daughter having sex with both. Joint owners of a female captive are similarly enjoined from intercourse because she is viewed as "part of a joint ownership." The United Nations and human rights groups have...

    American lawmakers push bill to counter Putin message Russia has reorganized and intensified its international propaganda machine so effectively over the past decade that some Western lawmakers and diplomats say Washington now is badly losing a global messaging war to the increasingly modernized blitz of anti-U.S. content from Moscow-backed news operations. Leaders in the House and Senate have not put their full weight behind the Royce-Engel legislation, although it moved swiftly through the committee in May.
  • ISIS Selling Yazidi Women and Children in Turkey

    This month, the German television station, ARD (Consortium of Public Broadcasters in Germany), produced footage documenting the slave trade being conducted by the Islamic State (ISIS) through a liaison office in the province of Gaziantep (also known as Antep) in Turkey, near the border with Syria. In August 2014, Islamic State jihadists attacked Sinjar, home to over 400,000 Yazidis. The United Nations confirmed that 5,000 men were executed, and as many as 7,000 women and girls made sex slaves.
