    Prince Harry received a standing ovation after he offered a heartfelt thank you to front-line workers and urged Americans to 'look beyond ourselves with empathy and compassion' during the star-studded Vax Live charity concert in Los Angeles. Harry was among many high profile stars - including Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez and Ben Affleck - to take the stage at Sunday night's concert taping hosted by Global Citizen at the So-Fi Stadium in Inglewood, where the crowd featured only fully-vaccinated guests. The concert promoting equitable distribution of coronavirus vaccines worldwide marked Harry's first public appearance in the US since his late...

    (This photo made available by the U.S. National Archives showed a portion of the first page of the United States Constitution.)The newly formed President’s Advisory 1776 Commission just released its report. The group was chaired by Churchill historian and Hillsdale College President, Dr. Larry P. Arnn. The vice chair was Dr. Carol M. Swain, a retired professor of political science. (Full disclosure: I was a member of the commission.)The unanimously approved conclusions focused on the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, the historical challenges to these founding documents and the need for civic renewal. The 16-member commission was diverse in...

    The 1776 Commission was removed from the White House website about an hour after President Joe Biden was sworn into office on Wednesday afternoon. Biden had already prepared to reverse key policies of the Trump administration through executive orders on his first day in the White House. One of those policies to be reversed was the 1776 Commission, according to a report by CNN. The 1776 Commission had released its final report on Monday, fulfilling Trump’s request to reaffirm the importance of America’s founding principles in the daily life and education of its citizens. Now, a search for “1776 report”...
  • Biden revokes Trump report promoting ‘patriotic education’

    The Associated Press ^ | January 21, 2021 | By COLLIN BINKLEY
    President Joe Biden revoked a recent Trump administration report that aimed to promote “patriotic education” in schools but that historians mocked and rejected as political propaganda. In an executive order signed on Wednesday in his first day in office, Biden disbanded Donald Trump’s presidential 1776 Commission and withdrew a report it released Monday. Trump established the group in September to rally support from white voters and as a response to The New York Times’ “1619 Project,” which highlights the lasting consequences of slavery in America. In its report, which Trump hoped would be used in classrooms across the nation, the...

    The American Mind ^ | 01/18/21 | President Trump's Advisory 1776 Commission
    President Trump’s Advisory 1776 Commission released its 1776 Report on Monday. The Commission is chaired by Larry Arnn, president of Hillsdale College and Claremont Institute vice chairman. We re-publish here the sections on the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. CNN’s headline about this report was predictably malicious: “Trump administration issues racist school curriculum report on MLK day.” Readers of these sections are likely to draw the opposite conclusion: the only path to American justice is through the principles of equal natural rights and liberty expressed in the Declaration and safeguarded in the Constitution. This is the first of two...

    New Years Eve I created a recurring monthly donating to FR in the amount of $17.76...not bragging, just setting the stage for a quick vanity. In 2016 I donated $100 to the Trump campaign, my gut told me good things would come, he would beat Hillary, and PDJT has exceeded all expectations. In late 2019, I started a monthly contribution to PDJT of $45 for #45. For all the bad of 2020 and this election specifically, what we are seeing now, is separating the America lovers from the haters, subverters, seditionists and traitors. The weak from the Strong.

    We are two Americas: Biden’s America and Trump’s America. These two Americas have nothing of importance in common with each other, and no common ground to stand on. There is not a single moral or political principle upon which these two Americas agree. Sure, everybody wants “freedom,” “justice,” “equality,” “democracy,” and a host of other glittering ideals. So have most dictators, Communists, and war criminals in modern history. Lenin, Stalin, and Mao gave stirring speeches in favor of all of them. The reality is that in the United States, we have long since ceased to do anything more than pay...

    "I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country." Have you heard this famous declaration before? American patriot Nathan Hale said it on September 22, 1776, his last words before he was hanged for spying on British troops. How did this come to pass? Hale, born in Coventry, Connecticut, on June 6, 1755, and a teacher by trade, joined his five brothers in the fight for independence against the British.

    President Trump announced Thursday a new Executive Order creating the ‘1776 Commission’, an organization that will promote “patriotic education” in America’s public schools. “Today I’m also pleased to announce that I will soon sign an Executive Order establishing a national commission to promote patriotic education. It will be called the 1776 Commission,” said the President. https://twitter.com/bennyjohnson/status/1306674380437676033?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1306674380437676033%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fhannity.com%2Fmedia-room%2F1776-commission-trump-signs-order-establishing-commission-to-promote-patriotism-in-schools%2F “It will encourage our educators to teach our children about the miracle of American history and make plans to honor the 250th anniversary of our founding,” he added.

    President Donald Trump announced on Thursday he would sign a new executive order establishing the “1776 Commission” to promote patriotic education. The commission will counter the revisionist history peddled by leftist efforts like the New York Times’ 1619 Project, which imposes false narratives on America’s students. “The narratives about America being pushed by the far left and being chanted in the streets bear a striking resemblance to the anti-American propaganda of our adversaries,” Trump said in remarks during the White House Conference on American History at the National Archives. He further described the 1619 Project—a collection of essays that cast...

    Saturday’s news conference with Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was a little different from usual. For starters, there was no practice to discuss. Carroll had given the team the day off. Second, there were no questions. Just 15 minutes of Carroll addressing the camera, discussing a topic that continues to dominate the sports world: racial inequality. [cut] "(White people) need to be coached up and they need to be educated about what the heck is going on in the world," Carroll said. "Black people can't scream anymore, they can't march any more, they can't bear their souls anymore to...

    Among the list of statues torn down during the current rage against American history was the Rochester, New York homage to Frederick Douglass. Born a slave in 1818, Douglass escaped and became one of the most eloquent opponents of slavery in America. Why was his statue torn down? It seems that Douglass' sin was arguing that the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution laid the groundwork for the abolition of slavery. He called for the nation to live up to the principles of equality and liberty expressed in these documents by emancipating the slaves. Yusra Khogali, a co-founder of the...

    A man accused of stabbing a supermarket worker with a pair of scissors told police he was a pirate from 1776. Police say they arrested Joseph Pradel after he stabbed Jacque Vino, an employee at Weis Market in Plains Township, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday. And according to police, who say Pradel was under the influence of a controlled substance at the time, the suspect told them that he was a pirate who had come to America on the Santa Maria in 1776. When asked if he regretted his alleged actions by a WNEP reported, Pradel replied: ‘Nah.’ Court papers say Mr...

    REASON #5: NATURAL LAW What did the first Continental Congress mean when it appealed to “the immutable laws of nature,” or Thomas Jefferson when he referred to the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God and the unalienable rights of man”? Natural law. The principle of natural law is embedded in Western civilization, the Declaration of Independence, and our whole history as a nation. The concept of natural law was first articulated by Aristotle in Rhetoric, where Aristotle notes that, aside from the “particular” laws that each people has set up for itself, there is a “common” law that is...

    “I think the important point to make about slavery is that it had existed for thousands of years without substantial criticism,” said the historian Gordon Wood in an interview last year. “But it’s the American Revolution that makes it a problem for the world. And the first real anti-slave movement takes place in North America. So this is what’s missed by these essays in the 1619 Project.” Mr. Wood is one of the country’s leading experts on the colonial era, and he was referring to a collection of New York Times articles published last summer that examine the role of...

    The British approach to its American colony in 1775 offers valuable lessons for historians and military professionals in the synthesis between the levels of wartime leadership and their effect on direct action at the tactical level. As such, it is worthwhile to reflect on the British experience in 1775, and how guidance from strategic and operational leaders had a dramatic impact on the opening stages of the conflict. A misalignment of desired objectives, a desire to exercise control down to the lowest echelon, and poorly executed direct leadership defined the British approach concerning the events surrounding Lexington and Concord on...
