Decades from now experts will surely debate today’s Summer of Monumental Hysteria. After all, by all objective criteria—assuming, of course, that anything can be objective if it involves race—it should not have happened. How many Americans really can correctly identify Robert E. Lee, let alone Roger B. Taney? (According to one recent survey, half the American public did not know when the Civil War happened.) Do racially sensitive African Americans even notice the names on these statues or plaques when they encountered them? Why now since most of these offense-giving inanimate objects have existed for decades? Continue reading
“It’s a known fact that there are over 4 million unemployed Americans in the same age group as those that are DACA recipients.“ ~ Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders
There is no evidence that unemployed Africa-American and Hispanic-Americans youths can do the jobs done by “DACA” illegal immigrants, the liberal Washington Post told its readers September 6.
Reporter Tracy Jan headlined her article “The Truth” as she argued that lower-skilled Americans cannot do the jobs filled by DACA illegals. Continue reading
“I was lucky I wasn’t at the WTC that morning due to my being allergic to death” ~ Larry Silverstein
There a lots of “useful idiots” out there on the Left that couldn’t pour water into a teapot if they were handed a set of gilt-edged instructions along with the water. Our government education system has largely aided in their brainwashing and programming so that they think good is evil, freedom is slavery, and white is evil, even though many of them are white. They claim that fascism is a “right-wing” phenomena when any sane person recognizes that there is precious little difference between a Nazi (national socialist) and a Communist (international socialist). They are both socialists!
I just read an article this morning from Frontpage Magazine, by Matthew Vadum, dealing with Antifa, which is supposed to be an “anti-fascist” group but, in reality, acts as though they were Hitler’s brown shirts. Vadum stated in his article: “Video has surfaced showing masked Antifa thugs in Berkeley, California, last weekend calling for the destruction of the United States…It is becoming increasingly clear that the Antifa, short for anti-fascists, are the de facto militant arm of today’s Democratic Party…” According to Tucker Carlson of Fox News “This is a political militia that is doing the bidding, in effect, of Nancy Pelosi and Governor Jerry Brown and the mayor of Berkeley and all these supposedly mainstream Democratic politicians, and this is a militia hurting American citizens for saying what they think.” Continue reading
A while ago, I was dumbstruck by a comment a Republican party insurgent in Utah made about her former governor, Jon Huntsman, Jr., a Republican politician who received strong kudos from the libertarian Cato Institute. “‘On a good day, a socialist,’ said Darcy Van Orden, a co-founder of Utah Rising . . . . ‘On a bad day, he’s a communist’.” And, of course, people like Ms. Van Orden consider it obvious that Barack Obama is a socialist, if not worse. David Koch, one of the brother team of conservative financial angels, commented, for example, that Obama’s “father was a hard core economic socialist in Kenya . . . [and Obama] was apparently from what I read a great admirer of his father’s points of view.”
Abraham Lincoln It is striking how the term “socialist” has been redefined so that almost any policy and anyone can get that label. Indeed, many a past president would qualify by these standards surely FDR, Truman, and Democrats through Clinton but so would Republican presidents. By the standards of people such as Ms. Van Orden and David Koch, Abraham Lincoln was surely an out-and-out “socialist-communist.”
Let’s consider the Lincoln record. During just one term (plus 45 days), Lincoln managed to do the following “socialist-communist” acts: (Continue Reading on Metropolis Café)
“These Juramentado attacks were materially reduced in number by a practice that the Mohamedans held in abhorrence. The bodies were publicly buried in the same grave with a dead pig. It was not pleasant to have to take such measures, but the prospect of going to hell instead of heaven sometimes deterred the would-be assassins.”
These were the words of General Pershing in his autobiography. According to the New York Times (despite having reported on it at the time) it’s a myth. The Washington Post agrees. They both cite fact checks by Politifact and Snopes. The problem with all the fact checks is… the facts. Continue reading
“True patriotism sometimes requires of men to act exactly contrary, at one period, to that which it does at another, and the motive which impels them the desire to do right is precisely the same.” ~ Robert E. Lee
I consider myself a student of history. I’ve always been fascinated by the personalities who drove events throughout history. I probably would have been a history major in college if I didn’t feel the need to make enough money to support myself and my family. I chose a business major and decided studying history would be my hobby. Over the years I’ve taken a particular interest in the Civil War. You could even call me a Civil War buff. Continue reading
This Changes Everything
The 2016 presidential campaign got some people talking that Trump is a racist.
Former employees and other people denied this, but part of his past opened an interesting discussion.
In 1997, Trump bought the Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida and it soon became a private club, as Western Journalism reports.
Most clubs in Palm Beach “had long barred Jews and African Americans — which is to say they practiced a quiet but steely racism,” said Jeffrey Lord for the The American Spectator, regarding the era before Trump came in the area. Continue reading
A local realtor shared his experience he encountered while showing homes to a low income, working family in Pontiac, MI.
As a Realtor for the past 28 years I thought I’d seen or heard it all…until now. I was showing homes in Pontiac, MI. one afternoon recently and showed up at a home at the 4:00 pm time my appointment was scheduled for. After I woke up the homeowner, she let us in and then proceeded to tell my buyers and I that she has already entered into a contract to sell the home on a short-sale. (A short-sale is a sale where the bank accepts less money than is owed on the home). After some chit-chat, she proceeded to tell us that she and her sister (who also lived in the area) were buying each other’s homes via the short-sale process. I mentioned to her that I thought relatives could not be involved in those transactions. She smiled and said “We have two different last names so no one knows the difference”. She went on to tell us that each of them owed over 100K on their homes and were in the process of buying each other’s homes for about 10-15K cash. To top it off, they were each receiving $3,000.00 in government provided relocation assistance at the closing. Continue reading
Once the shared memories of these values are lost, the Empire ceases to exist; there is nothing left to reform or renew.
Is renewal/recovery from systemic decline possible? The history of the Roman Empire is a potentially insightful place to start looking for answers. As long-time readers know, I’ve been studying both the Western and Eastern (Byzantine) Roman Empires over the past few years.
Both Western and Eastern Roman Empires faced existential crises that very nearly dissolved the empires hundreds of years before their terminal declines. The Western Roman Empire, beset by the overlapping crises of invasion, civil war, plague and economic upheaval, nearly collapsed in the third century C.E. (Christian Era, what was previously A.D.) — 235 to 284 C.E., fully two hundred years before its final dissolution in the fifth century (circa 476 C.E.). Continue reading
Bring back 1968…
At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. Stephanie Lulay wrote:
A raucous and “very dangerous” gang party that brought 1,000 people to a Near West Side park late Sunday was so out of control, Chicago police struggled to shut it down, one alderman said. Continue reading
Has CNN found their new Sandra Fluke poster child for “free” birth control?
On Monday, CNN posted a real “tear jerker” tale about a married couple fearing they would not longer be able to get prescriptions for birth control if the GOP’s health care bill passed in the Senate because it would shut down their local Planned Parenthood clinic.
Ariana and Kevin Gonzalez told CNN that they would have to resort to going to Mexico to get the contraceptives they need, since the new bill would likely shut down their local clinic because of slashed government funding. Instead of taking an objective look at health care access, CNN’s sob story reads more like an ad for Planned Parenthood. Continue reading
The “Art of the Deal” relies on reaching a compromise with people over common ground. Where is there any common ground with Democrats?
Where is the common ground between Democrats and Republicans by which President Trump can use his superb skills to make a deal for the benefit of America? Rush Limbaugh makes these observations; Continue reading
A discussion with David Abroms
From David’s iTunes Podcast, ”We are The American Remnant. We believe in limited government, free-markets and upholding the constitution. But as the right has moved towards nationalism and populism and the left has moved towards statism and socialism, we will stand on our principles even if we are on the sidelines of the current political climate. Albert Jay Nock, an author in the 1930’s coined the phrase “The Remnant” for those that did not fit in the current political discussion. We are now The American Remnant.”
Today, this author had the distinct privilege in speaking with David at length about what he sees in America, what it will take to bring America back to being for all Americans, and his opinion on some of the most current events. Sit back, and spend a few moments at getting the insight on David Abroms, and America today.
A man of distinction, hardworking business owner, connoisseur of the American dream, and a candidate in the latest political running for Georgia’s 6th District. David and Sam his (Dog) gave me an in-depth, no holds barred Q and A about his run, America, and the future in Politics. First and foremost is a little background on David, and what his stances were during the political run. Continue reading
The original Battle of Gettysburg was fought back on July 1-3, 1863 both in and around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and was, for a number of reasons I won’t go into here (lest I end up writing a book) a Yankee/Marxist victory. After the battle Lee took his Army of Northern Virginia, battered and bruised, but not totally defeated by any means, back into Virginia, where they fought on for almost another two years. Meade, the Yankee general in command at the time, chose to not hastily pursue Lee. In fact it was awhile before he got his army going again. He seemed to be almost in shock over having won the battle, a position not shared by too many Yankee generals at the time.
The battlefield is today, and has been for decades, a major draw for tourists, historians, and many others with more than a passing interest. My family and I have been there three different times that I can recall and on some of those trips we also visited other battlefields that were not too distant. We have also visited Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, which is in the process of being turned into a shrine to honor abolitionist/terrorist John Brown. Continue reading
This Memorial Day, Monday, May 29, 2017, is the 100th birthday of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States.
JFK was assassinated on November 22, 1963, as he approached the end of his third year in office. Researchers who spent years studying the evidence have concluded that President Kennedy was assassinated by a conspiracy between the CIA, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Secret Service.
Kennedy entered office as a cold warrior, but he learned from his interaction with the CIA and Joint Chiefs that the military/security complex had an agenda that was self-interested and a danger to humanity. He began working to defuse tensions with the Soviet Union. Continue reading
Many accounts will praise the sacrifices and deeds of those who fought in the American wars. Some versions will emotionally express their thanks and respect, while others will list their heroic actions. There is another viewpoint that seldom gets the attention that it deserves. Simply put, what is the true reason that all this blood was shed and the meaning of continued torment that follows, when the guns are silenced? Some will say, we just need to revere those who served. Others may dare to ask, why and what for?
The most positive decision coming out of the last thirty years has significance that affects all of us. It honors those who served and those who supported each conflict. Not all may agree with this conclusion, but how many have ever thought it through? The draft is now abolished. Involuntary servitude is gone and forced indentured service has now become voluntary. That is a victory that we ALL should celebrate. Continue reading
I have warned for 27 years since being aware: There is a war between good and evil.
Violent liberal riots recently shut down Milo Yiannopoulos’s speech in Berkeley. Trump supporters showed up some weeks ago to rally for free speech. Fights broke out as liberals attacked, and police stood down. Mere threats of violence canceled Ann Coulter’s speech last week. The failing New York Times blamed the victims: conservative speakers. But a growing number of conservatives aren’t taking it anymore.
This war is not about “racism,” although whites are truly hated due to liberal scapegoating. It’s not about “sexism,” although males are manipulated to think and feel like women, and are punished when they don’t. Continue reading
The truth of how corrupt Obamacare is. Our Dictator Obama knew exactly what he was doing to hurt Americans please read. Most people have no idea because it’s not reported. ~ H.C.
If what I’ve seen on social media the last day or two is any indication, most people really think ObamaCare is nothing more than “we give you health insurance.” People have no concept for what might be wrong with the law, or what might be negative about it, or what kinds of problems it might be causing. They really think it’s nothing more than the benevolent government telling mean old health insurance companies they can’t turn you down and they can’t charge you too much. Continue reading

I have complained about the total LACK of the public schools to teach CIVICS to high schoolers. Learned tonight that it stopped in the 1970’s. I took Civics when I was in the 9th grade and that helped to add to the classes I had in the 8th grade -studying the Constitution – another long forgotten class in today’s schools. It is no wonder we have snowflakes that only understand how to PROTEST and DESTROY Property of others.
They expect everyone to provide for them as being self supporting via a productive job is something they have never been taught…. or know how to do. ~ Jackie Juntti (Read complete column on Metropolis Café…)
Think your Southern culture, history, and heritage are not under attack, constant attack? If you don’t, then you really better wake up and smell the coffee.
Just take a look at what is going on in New Orleans right now in regard to Confederate and historical monuments. You are about to see a major exercise in cultural genocide. Hopefully you have been keeping an eye on what has been happening in New Orleans in the last year regarding Confederate monuments and other historical statues. Continue reading
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg attacked sanctuary cities on MSNBC Tuesday morning, denouncing the idea of cities effectively nullifying federal law.
“What would you do about this issue of sanctuary cities, about the cities who are saying we’re not going to enforce federal law?” economic analyst Steven Rattner asked Bloomberg on “Morning Joe.”
“You cannot, Steve, have everybody be deciding which laws they obey,” the former mayor bluntly declared. “The law is the law.”
This weekend we were subjected to the too lazy to work crowds who prefer to march in protests about things they have no clue about beyond their rehearsed chanting. I am talking about the BLM’s and the SHOW US YOUR TAX RETURN loud mouths.
I find it so telling of their hypocrisy – How they are demanding Pres. Trump release his tax returns but are totally SILENT about the SEALED RECORDS of Obama. Now we have Lois Lerner who KNOWS her testimony will expose the corruption in the IRS – especially during the Obama reign.
Why is it the LEFT can hide and SEAL their corruption and deception but they demand that the Conservative side release everything including their used toilet paper… Continue reading
… the gutless will never proclaim it!
February was black history month and if you are like me, you heard about it until it was coming out your ears. The “fake news” media never ceased to deliver unto us some little tidbit that had to do with some aspect of black history. And it didn’t all cease on the 28th of the month either.
April is Confederate History Month and I’d be willing to bet you haven’t heard the first word about it from the “fake news” media. This is one of those things that they, in their unending wisdom, have deemed you don’t need to know anything about and so the MSM will do as much as possible to make sure you remain totally unaware of this. It’s called “selective reporting 101.” Continue reading
The political contest for judicial control of the nation’s future is a four-dimensional chess match.
“[T]here is not a syllable in the plan under consideration which directly empowers the national courts to construe the laws according to the spirit of the Constitution.” ~ Alexander Hamilton in Federalist Paper No. 81 (1787)
In February 2016, the death of Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court’s most articulate and faithful Rule of Law advocate, threatened to upend the High Court’s tenuous 5-4 conservative majority. It also threatened to punctuate Barack Obama’s legacy by giving him a third Supreme Court appointment — and thereby the means to undermine our Constitution for a generation.
Justice Scalia, appointed by Ronald Reagan in 1986, was the constitutional firewall between Rule of Law and rule of men; between those who believe that words have meaning, and those who seek to, as the venerable former Senator Sam Ervin (D-SC) put it, “interpret the Constitution to mean what it would have said if [they], instead of the Founding Fathers, had written it.” Justice Scalia understood, as Thomas Jefferson warned, that such interpretation would render our Constitution “a mere thing of wax … which [judges] may twist and shape into any form they please.”
On such judicial malpractice, Justice Scalia, in accordance with his oath “to Support and Defend” our Constitution, wrote, “As long as judges tinker with the Constitution to ‘do what the people want,’ instead of what the document actually commands, politicians who pick and confirm new federal judges will naturally want only those who agree with them politically.” For his entire tenure, he manned the wall against those who subscribe to the errant notion of a so-called “living constitution,” one that can be shaped and twisted to comport with their political ideology. Continue reading
Are you starting to feel that you have been here previously and have gone through this same drill before? Wagging the kosher tail in front of the controlled media is a rerun that the gullible public never gets tired of. Those who question the orthodox narrative are condemned as disloyal or agents of a foreign power. However, for those who are “stuck on stupid”, that alien country is never allowed to identify the Zionist cabal as the real force behind the imposition of the war party’s continuous conflict in avoidable bloodshed. The Pavlovian trained domestic wieners that contest any suggestion of a false flag formula, refuse to face facts. The drum beat for Armageddon always works to divert from the true defiler that operates as a fifth column against the genuine national interests of America. Continue reading
President Ronald Reagan said: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Actor and former president of the National Rifle Association Charlton Heston, who called himself a “Kennedy Democrat,” switched to the Republican Party after the 1960s.
On racial preferences, JFK, in 1963, said he opposed them: “I don’t think that is the generally held view, at least as I understand it, of the Negro community, that there is some compensation due for the lost years, particularly in the field of education. What I think they would like is to see their children well-educated so that they could hold jobs and have their children accepted and have themselves accepted as equal members of the community. So I don’t think we can undo the past. In fact, the past is going to be with us for a good many years in uneducated men and women who lost their chance for a decent education. We have to do the best we can now. That is what we are trying to do. I don’t think quotas are a good idea. I think it is a mistake to begin to assign quotas on the basis of religion or race or color, or nationality.
The burning question facing every European country in 2017: can their countries and cultures survive endless refugee immigration from the ever-burgeoning Third World?
The salient question being ignored vs. not being asked in America, Canada or Australia: how will these homelands survive the projected 100,000,000 (million) refugees flooding into America within 30 years; 10,000,000 projected for Canada and another 10 million projected for Australia?

Ordinary black people cannot afford to go along with the liberal agenda that calls for undermining police authority. That agenda makes for more black crime victims. Let’s look at what works and what doesn’t work.
In 1990, New York City adopted the practice in which its police officers might stop and question a pedestrian. If there was suspicion, they would frisk the person for weapons and other contraband. This practice, well within the law, is known as a Terry stop. After two decades of this proactive police program, New York City’s homicides fell from over 2,200 per year to about 300. Blacks were the major beneficiaries of proactive policing. According to Manhattan Institute scholar Heather Mac Donald — author of “The War on Cops” — seeing as black males are the majority of New York City’s homicide victims, more than 10,000 blacks are alive today who would not be had it not been for proactive policing. Continue reading
