    An Arizona public school district says one of its teachers broke school policy when she reportedly had her class recite an altered version of the Declaration of Independence. A 4th-grade teacher at Salk Elementary School in Mesa altered a poster of the historical document by crossing out two instances of the word “men” in the second and third sentences and substituting it with “humans,” a local ABC affiliate reported. She then had students recite the altered version in class, the station said.

    The Turkish Anadolu news agency reports that Racep Erdogan is considering levying sanctions on the Kurdish population over their upcoming referendum for independence. "As the national security council, we will advise the government on our decision. With it, the cabinet will meet and discuss this. It will both evaluate this and put forth their own stance on what kind of sanctions we can impose, or if we will, but these will not be ordinary," ...

    The Kurdish Regional Government is only weeks away from holding a referendum on whether to declare sovereignty for the Kurdish people in northern Iraq. Here’s why supporting the potential referendum on Sept. 25 should be a no-brainer for the Trump administration — and everyone else who supports the advancement of American interests abroad. 1. They are our partners in the war against global jihad snip... What’s stopping them? The referendum for independence is scheduled for Sept. 25, but it’s still unclear whether the Kurdistan Regional Government will indeed go forward with the vote, after years of setbacks and delays.

  • Calexit III? New ballot measure plots another route to California independence (YES!)

    On Thursday, people unhappy with California’s place in the United States filed yet another proposed ballot measure that could lead to the Golden State striking out on its own. This time, the goal is convening a U.S. constitutional convention to overhaul what proponents call a moldy national blueprint out of step with life in California. The measure says a reworked Constitution should include a provision creating a “clear and reasonable path for states to achieve complete independence from the United States should any state so choose.” No state has become independent under the existing U.S. Constitution. “The world has changed...

    Wife unit and I just completed painting our childrens rooms. Theme should be between K-3 , boy and girl. What posters/themes centered on education and religion would you put in their room? Below is a small list I have brainstormed, and I am interested in things that just ARENT taught as much anymore or not emphasized enough. When I was growing up my room was filled with posters to keep my mind going......most were hand made by mom. I'm sure there are nice ones that homeschoolers and teachers use that maybe I'm not thinking of. Thanks! FReegards!

    The white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville seemed to think that their movement is committed to taking America back. They are mistaken. They cannot take America back because it was never theirs in the first place. It's true that the legacies of slavery and centuries of legalized racism have long tarnished our nation's history. That reality has always stood in conflict with our nation's founding ideals of freedom, equality, and self-governance. For too many years, white Americans simply ignored the contradiction that they didn't want to see. That failure to confront evil allowed racists and white supremacists to continue their...

    President Trump’s new FBI nominee has been announced. Christoper Wray, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on July 12, 2017. He confirmed he would do his job without partisan political influence in response to the first question of the hearing. Frankly, what I seek from the new FBI Director is the desire to go after Hillary Clinton and James Comey – to get them – and get them good! I would not trust anyone like James Comey. But many of Wray’s colleagues say he is unlike Comey. President Trump has called Comey a “showboat,” and I think he is right...

    EDM DJ and singer Kaya Jones is passionate about more than just her career as a recording artist. She is also an outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump and the “Making America Great Again” movement. The recording artist and entrepreneur, who also happens to be a former Pussycat Doll, recently attended the Fourth of July celebrations at the White House in Washington, D.C. For the occasion, Jones found a dress that was quite fitting. Jones attended the event in a patriotic $18 piece from H&M. In the caption of her Instagram post showing off the look, she wrote, “I’m truly a simple girl at...
  • "The Root" magazine engages in gross historical malpractice

    07/05/2017 7:08:34 PM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 9 replies
    It's such a shame to see a magazine that claims to be "The Root", be so willing to ignore "the roots" of what you would think would be their own history. Recently, The Root engaged in gross historical malpractice by giving voice to people who would benefit greatly from learning their own true history. They created a short video titled "No Country for Me." This is (among many reasons) one of the reasons why I recorded William Cooper Nell's 1855 book The Colored Patriots of the American Revolution as an audiobook. There are many outlets out there, even outlets such...

    If Western nations would take a few minutes to listen and comprehend the words of the United States Declaration of Independence - whilst considering current events in their own nations as well as ours, they might envision the wisdom and utility in seeking independence for their/our cultural survival. Below begins my own attempt to do so with highlighted and hyperlinked information tying this Declaration's understanding as related to current events here in the United States. Feel free to add links, comments enhancing the urgency of addressing the threats posed against our nation by shariah, Islam, and the great Hijrah (migration...

    July 4th, also known as Independence Day, is a much more lighthearted and festive American holiday -- with cookouts, parades, beach and boating parties and fireworks -- than other patriotic holidays such Memorial Day or Veterans Day. Most people forget that when the 56 members of the Continental Congress signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776, they were in fact signing their death warrants. At the time, Great Britain was the most powerful nation on earth, while the thirteen American colonies were poor and disunited. The British Crown deemed the issuance of a declaration of independence an act of treason,...

    181 years ago, March 6, 1836, the Alamo garrison fell, and the fortress that had been a mission became a shrine. Francisco Antonio Ruiz was the Acalde (mayor) of San Antonio. He was an eyewitness to the events of that day. Twenty-four years later, in 1860, Don Poncho (as Ruiz was known), recounted what he had seen for the Texas Almanac. Below is his account in full.

    President is the TARGET of the most dangerous group of EXTREMISTS on earth: our liberal press, television/entertainment The left’s HATRED of Donald Trump has gone beyond ‘art form’ and has progressed into a sick competition to win approval from fellow Trump haters and the liberal news-media/entertainment industry that have invented the new sport of Trump HATE. It’s quite obvious that the object of that HATE is to chastise the Donald and anyone who dared to act like a FREE AMERICAN. Just as I had diagrammed it in my last article, Trump HATE is gaining momentum with each morning’s freshly disparaging...

    “We, the People . . .” are the three most powerful words in the history of world governments. It was the promise of a new way of self-governance; a profoundly unique experiment born of America’s 13 colonies and defended with the blood of Patriots. But today, battles rage among a divided people over an array of issues. At the center of the conflict is an oversized American government no longer bound by constitutional limits and retaining only a vague recollection of the finite powers delegated to it at the time of its creation. As Americans we should honor and celebrate...

    Has America spent the last few hundred years misunderstanding the Declaration of Independence? That's what Danielle Allen, a professor at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, NJ, believes. According to Allen, the paragraph beginning 'We hold these truths to be self-evident' has been misinterpreted thanks to a rogue period that was not in the original document. And that could completely transform our understanding of how the Founding Fathers viewed the role of government, The New York Times reported.

    Many historians call the Founding Fathers "Deists," and many of them were not true Christians -- after all, Thomas Jefferson tore all the miracles out of the Gospels! But judging by the Declaration of Independence, our Founders were more religious than many think: our founding document mentions God no less than four times.This is not to say America was founded as an explicitly Christian nation -- the federal government has never had an established religion. But the Jewish and Christian understandings of God deeply influenced the founding generation, and that influence radiates from the Declaration of Independence.Here are the four...

    During the Bretton Woods Conference, in 1944, Lord Halifax is said to have “whispered to Lord Keynes: ‘It’s true: they have the money bags but we have all the brains.’” By “they,” Halifax meant the Americans. His frustration with the American mind—often prosaic and anti-intellectual—during the critical Bretton-Woods negotiations seems as valid today. As odious as Britain’s elites are; boy, are they cleverer than ours. Take the impromptu interview, on June 28, which Richard Quest, CNN’s imported British broadcast journalist, conducted with Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party. Farage had emerged exhilarated from the coven that is the...

    DAD, WHAT's UNABHÄNGIGKEITSTAG? "Is that when the thirteen colonies broke away from England?" My ten year inquired out of nowhere at 6 AM German time this morning. "Yeah, why do you want to know, eat your breakfast," I mumbled, too sleepy to be very curious. "Because I am afraid my teacher will ask me, since I am wearing this T-shirt and I'm the only American in the class." With an effort, I adjusted my gaze upward to his white T-shirt. It was brand new. Prominent on his breast was an image of the flag and below that: OLD NAVY FREEDOM...
