  • Slavery

    07/19/2017 8:54:28 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 37 replies ^ | July 19, 2017 | Walter E. Williams
    Too many people believe that slavery is a "peculiar institution." That's what Kenneth Stampp called slavery in his book, "Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South." But slavery is by no means peculiar, odd or unusual. It was common among ancient peoples such as the Egyptians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Hittites, Greeks, Persians, Armenians and many others. Large numbers of Christians were enslaved during the Ottoman wars in Europe. White slaves were common in Europe from the Dark Ages to the Middle Ages. It was only after A.D. 1600 that Europeans joined with Arabs and Africans and started the Atlantic slave trade....

    The Third Amendment reads, “No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war except in a manner prescribed by law.” This Amendment, introduced by James Madison, was important to the Framers because of the callous way in which British troops would take over and loot personal residences during the Revolutionary war through Britain’s Quartering Acts. In The Making of America, W. Cleon Skousen writes how quartering of troops was among the “long train of abuses and usurpations” of King George listed in the Declaration of Independence....

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore holds the lead in the race for the United States Senate, polls show. According to Politico, Moore currently has 31 percent of the vote in a field of almost a dozen Republican primary candidates. Next in line is sitting Sen. Luther Strange, who formerly served as Alabama attorney general, at 23 percent of the vote. U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks holds 21 percent of the vote, while all other candidates generated less than 5 percent public support. “With roughly six weeks to go until Election Day, we must work even harder than...

    The colonies had been in conflict with England for over a year in June of 1776. A Continental Congress convened in Philadelphia on June 7 of that year. Richard Henry Lee from Virginia offered up a resolution with these now famous words: “Resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.”

    By the workings of some subconscious mechanisms we’ll never fully understand, we can’t read Christiane Amanpour’s impassioned call last November for the long-dormant media to awaken from its slumber and save the country from “mortal peril” without thinking of the Anne Rice vampire fantasy “Queen of the Damned” … ’cause we’ll be damned if it didn’t work. The thing is, it’s tough finding your footing back on the job after an eight-year break, so you stumble about a bit trying to look busy and productive. Take, for example, the New York Times, which is following up its comprehensive lists of every...

    The Preamble of The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of the Child recognizes, among other things, that an unborn child is alive. "Bearing in mind that, as indicated in the Declaration of the Rights of the Child, “the child, by reason of his physical and mental immaturity, needs special safeguards and care, including appropriate legal protection, before as well as after birth" Article 6 of the Declaration adds the following, Article 61. States Parties recognize that every child has the inherent right to life." Yet, many delegations and governments refuse to recognize the unborn child's right to legal...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Latest on Nevada becoming the fifth state in the U.S. with stores selling marijuana for recreational purposes (all times local): Minnesota resident Edgar Rosas Lorenzo on Saturday flew with his family to Sin City for a wedding. But even before he checked in to his hotel, he stopped at a pot dispensary on the Las Vegas Strip. The 21-year-old says he learned of the legalization of recreational marijuana in Nevada while he was at the airport waiting for his flight to depart. He waited in line about 40 minutes before he could buy one-eighth of...

    A true test for liberty minded politicians is facing them this Congress.  The idea of federalism as it applies to medical marijuana laws in the states.  The self-proclaimed champions of federalism will have their commitment to the idea tested when they are called on to vote on a measure protecting federalism as part of the appropriations process this fall.There is bipartisan support for the idea of federalism. On May 18, 2017, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) put out a press release that committed the chamber to the idea of federalism:Federalism is not...

    Making America Great Again continues to run up against the reality of DC UniParty roadblocks. Both Democrats and Republicans are procrastinating while hoping for any excuse not to participate in America-First policy advancement. The election result in Georgia’s sixth district is yet another example of Trump supporters removing excuses the DC UniParty puts forth; yet the DC apparatus is so entrenched in their opposition to President Trump’s policy agenda, they sit idle spinning various congressional hearings-to-nowhere in an increasingly transparent effort to avoid action.

    Subtitle: End the Poofter War. What follows isn’t intended to promote the establishment of a temporary, unconstitutional dictator over the United States. Since we are 240 years or so too late to seriously consider an office which well-served Republican Rome for some 450 years, this squib is simply a thought experiment in free government. The American Constitution and traditions don’t allow for the collapse of enormous, unconstitutional power into the hands of one, or a few people. Or does it? The objectives of Poofter Wars are ill-defined or non-existent; without objectives, there is no practical end to Poofter War. The...

    Often people can only take so much pressure before they seek to release it in rash and sudden ways, throwing caution and a careful consideration of consequences to the wind. There were good signs when President Trump was elected that many Americans were entering into that kind of moment. And now, with millions realizing just how widespread and deeply rooted are the problems cool-and-collected President Obama had helped us emotionally paper over, the urge to find release in rash words and deeds is kicking into overdrive. There’s talk of a “cold civil war,” a bitter longing for “national divorce,” and...

People who where not prohibited from owning firearms would be able to carry weapons concealed without special government permission. From LANSING, MI -- Michiganders would no longer need a concealed pistol license to carry a concealed pistol under legislation approved by the Michigan House of Representatives on Wednesday. House bills 4416 through 4419 strike the requirement that a Michigander have a license to carry a concealed weapons. People banned from possessing firearms would...

    In these two squibs, I’ll justify something that can never occur, the constitutional appointment of an American dictator to defeat our blood enemy, Islam. I’ve always disliked the term, “War on Terror.” It doesn’t convey what it should, a war on Islamic terror. In this ongoing, never-ending, politically correct poofter war, we send men and women around the world for apparently little purpose aside from bringing them home in caskets and filling our VA wards with a steady stream of amputees. While they diligently observe ridiculous ROE, the violation of which has landed good men in Leavenworth, judges open our...

Sanders said the current model and strategy of the Democratic Party is "an absolute failure." "The Democratic Party needs fundamental change," he said. He called on his supporters to move the party toward "open[ing] its doors to working people and young people... who are prepared to fight for social and economic justice."

    The New York Times and other mainstream outlets have been filled with alarming stories recently about the possibility, voiced by Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), that our voting process in the November election could be subjected to cyber-attacks. Johnson told reporters in Washington (and state officials in a phone call on Monday) that he was considering designating our election system as “critical infrastructure, like the financial sector, like the power grid” because there is “a vital national interest in our electoral process.” There is only one problem with this — there is no credible...

    The government of Qatar has hired John Ashcroft, the U.S. attorney general during the Sept. 11 attacks, as it seeks to rebut accusations from U.S. President Donald Trump and its Arab neighbors that it supports terrorism. Qatar will pay the Ashcroft Law Firm $2.5 million for a 90-day period as the country seeks to confirm its efforts to fight global terrorism and comply with financial regulations including U.S. Treasury rules, according to a Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA, filing on Friday with the Justice Department. "The firm's work will include crisis response and management, program and system analysis, media...
