  • Thomas Jefferson's Letter to John Adams. June 1, 1822

    The Adams-Jefferson Letters ^ | Monticello Jun 1, 1822 | Thomas Jefferson
    ...To turn to the news of the day, it seems that the Cannibals of Europe are going to eating one another again. A war between Russia and Turkey is like the battle of the kite and snake. Whichever destroys the other leaves a destroyer the less for the world. This pugnacious humor of mankind seems to be the law of his nature, one of the obstacles to too great multiplication provided in the mechanism of the Universe. The cocks of the henyard kill one another up. Boars, bulls, rams do the same. And the horse, in his wild state, kills...
  • 'Ancient Principles' Birthed the Greatest Nation the World Has Ever Known

    On the same day that the Declaration of Independence became official, a telling event further reveals that our founders understood well the “ancient principles” upon which our republic must be built. On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress appointed a committee -- consisting of Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams -- to design an official seal for the United States. Adams proposed an image of Hercules contemplating the persuasions of Virtue and Sloth. Franklin proposed a biblical theme: Moses standing on the Shore, and extending his Hand over the Sea, thereby causing the same to overwhelm Pharaoh who...

    “Why the hell would Jeb Bush post this today?”     Governor Jeb Bush provoked a backlash after he sent a strange tweet about presidents who died on July 4, with many taking it as a veiled dig at President Trump.“Three Presidents Die on July 4th: Just a Coincidence?” tweeted Bush along with a link to a story which explained how, “Three Founding Father Presidents—John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and James Monroe—died on July 4.”

    While tearing down everything thats great about our country, the left has always permitted us to celebrate patriotic holidays. But this year, on the week that we commemorate the unveiling of the Declaration of Independence, Nike yanked a Betsy Ross tribute sneaker off the market because the American flag didnt sit well with Colin Kaepernick. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is telling wild, provable lies about Americas border agents. This Fourth of July, lets look at the tactics used by the left to blacken the reputations of American heroes. To wit, the lie that the principal author of the declaration, Thomas...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 7/2/19 | Jon Dougherty
    A year ago, according to James S. Robbins, a Pentagon official during George W. Bushs administration and author of the book Erasing America, quoted POTUS Donald Trump opining that the American Left would never be satisfied with simply pulling down Confederate monuments. No, the president said in 2017, Leftists would eventually adopt overt efforts to actually memory hole our founders, our traditions and our culture. Is it George Washington next week he said, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You know, you really do have to ask yourself, where does it stop? Noted Robbins: Liberal historians tut-tutted at...

    Last week, Charlottesville, Virginia Mayor Nikuyah Walker proposed ending recognition of Thomas Jefferson’s birthday as an official city holiday. Instead, she wants the city to celebrate the emancipation of local slaves a month earlier, as “Liberation and Freedom Day.” The proposal will be brought before the city council at either its June 17 or July 1 meeting, reports The Daily Progress, a local newspaper.Charlottesville is the home to the University of Virginia, one of the United States’s premiere research and educational institutions, which Jefferson personally designed, founded, and led after serving as the U.S. president.

    Democrat hopeful Pete Buttigieg removing Thomas Jefferson's memory from the public square and ending the practice of naming public events in his honor.  The legacy of Jefferson, he said, is "problematic."  "There's a lot to admire in his thinking and his philosophy," he said, "but then again if you plunge into his writings, especially his notes on the state of Virginia, you know that he knew slavery was wrong." It's a stunning display of his ignorance, certainly.  But interestingly, Buttigieg has unknowingly pinpointed precisely why Thomas Jefferson should be eternally revered by our society, which believes that enslaving other human beings is...

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg called for everything honoring Thomas Jefferson to be renamed. Yeah, were doing that in Indiana. I think its the right thing to do, Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, said in a Friday radio interview with conservative host Hugh Hewitt.

    Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said Friday that things named after President Thomas Jefferson should be renamed because thats the right thing to do. Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Ind., who became the rising star of the 2020 Democratic primary, echoed the far-left calls to rename buildings or events that carry the names of prominent U.S. figures on the grounds that they were owners of slaves. The mayor was asked during "The Hugh Hewitt Show" on radio whether the name of the annual Indiana Democratic dinner, named the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, should be renamed as both presidents were holders of...

    I do not believe that he bought a copy of the Quran in order to glean "knowledge and wisdom," but rather to better understand America's enemies Obama is on record as stating that "Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding." Is that true? Well yes, sort of. If by "woven into the fabric of our country" you mean "following the Revolutionary War, Muslims were America's first international enemies," then yes, it's true. Muslim pirates helped to kick start the US Navy into existence. Anchors aweigh Islam!

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib appears to have allowed the media to think that the radical Muslim would be sworn in to office on a copy of "Thomas Jefferson's Koran". The media had previously found Thomas Jefferson's Koran to be a very useful propaganda stunt for making it appear that Islam is as America as... Thomas Jefferson. But then Rep. Rashida Tlaib announced that she hadn't actually used Jefferson's Koran, but an actual Koran. Despite her announcement, many media outlets didn't bother correcting their fake news. But that's typical of the media, which acts as the communications arm for the most radical...

    Archaeologists have discovered an area in Thomas Jefferson's plantation home that was once the living quarters of Sally Hemings - a slave with whom he is believed to have had six children. Her room, which was built in 1809 and was 14 feet, 8 inches wide and 13 feet long, was next to Thomas Jefferson's room. However, the bedroom went unnoticed for decades and the area was even made into a men's bathroom in 1941.

    Have Americans forgotten that freedom makes getting along easier? We do not all have to like each other. We do not even all have to be nice to each other. We just dont have license to hit or hornswoggle our fellows. Hate speech may be bad, but it is hate assaults not talk that should be punished by law. This distinction, between talk and act, is important. One way to look at it is to accept it as a hierarchy. And when it comes to hierarchy, you cannot get more deep into it than in thinking theologically. Which...

    The New York Times has published an extensive look at Californias far north, the group of conservative counties in the high Sierra country whose residents often feel alienated from state government, and where a movement to form a new State of Jefferson remains strong. The Times notes: The residents of this region argue that their political voice is drowned out in a system that has only one state senator for every million residents. Many liberals in California describe themselves as the resistance to Mr. Trump. Residents of the north say they are the resistance to the resistance, politically invisible to...

    A statue to Thomas Jefferson on the lawn of the University of Virginia was defaced with the words 'racist' and 'rapist' early on Friday morning, just before the start of celebrations marking the 275th anniversary of his birth. A UVA spokesman said: 'The university is disappointed that individuals vandalized the statue of Thomas Jefferson on the Lawn on the day that we honor his contributions to our University and to our democracy. 'UVA welcomes open and civil discourse on such important issues. However, acts of vandalism do not contribute to meaningful discussion. 'Crews from Facilities Management are removing the vandalism,...
