  • Grover Cleveland Knew How Thanksgiving Could Lift Up A Hurting Nation

    While many presidential Thanksgiving proclamations are worth revisiting in 2020, President Grover Cleveland’s 1888 proclamation is especially resonant.American presidents have declared Thanksgiving proclamations more than 165 times since President George Washington delivered the first in 1789. Although none were given between 1816 and 1862, presidential Thanksgiving proclamations became a tradition on October 3, 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln established Thanksgiving as a national holiday. Since then, various presidents have used such executive statements as reminders to offer thanks to God and rest from toil, to offer solace, and to help reorient the focus of the nation to the good, the...

    Anthony Fauci says it’s because people are not following his guidance that they ought to be punished by being alone and away from family on the holidays. Go punish yourself, but not us.I reached out via the family group chat on Facebook messenger. I said I wanted to come home to New England for Thanksgiving, I missed my extended family, and asked if anyone would see us. I wrote: “Hey fam, We’d would really like to come to New England for Thanksgiving and see all of your beautiful faces. Would I be welcomed or are we too scared of covid?...

    Life is too short to live it in fear of dying.More than eight months after “15 days to flatten the curve,” our so-called medical experts, politicos, and pundits are bidding us to avoid our family at all costs over the holidays, lest we die. This Thanksgiving week, family separation is the name of the game, with governors and local authorities implementing onerous restrictions to discourage people from leaving their homes.“If you are planning to spend Thanksgiving with people outside your household, we urge you to reconsider,” wrote a group of governors in the pages of the Washington Post. These authors...
  • Forcing The Sick And Elderly To Die Alone Is Crueler Than COVID-19

    Keeping people from their suffering loved ones does not safeguard them. It merely subjects them to a different kind of suffering — one for which there might be no recovery.One year ago today, my father died following a 10-year battle with cancer. Our family’s final weeks with him likely mirrored those of many other families. With a new wave of COVID-19 lockdowns beginning, however, I feel compelled to share our story because that journey convinces me that we, as a nation, are subjecting the dying to physical and psychological torture in the name of fighting a pandemic.Caring for FamilyI’m not...

    Democrat New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was confronted by several angry people as he ate outside a restaurant with his family, a video posted Sunday shows. ... The video showed Murphy taking a bite of food as a woman said, “Oh my God, it is,” apparently discovering that the person sitting at the table was indeed the governor of New Jersey. “Oh my God, Murphy, you are such a dick,” the woman said, as another woman can be heard saying repeatedly, “How you doing? How you doing? You having fun with your family in the meantime? You’re having all kind...

    I will not be lectured by people who say that eating in a restaurant with health protocols is riskier than shutting down the largest economy in the world.My parents and in-laws haven’t seen their grandkids in nearly a year. Because we live states apart, the most time we spend together is during the holidays and a week in the summer. Due to the lockdown this year, the grandparents have only been able to see our kids during video calls. It could be worse; some dear friends of ours buried a parent during the lockdown with no guests or funeral, and...
  • Hate doesn’t take a holiday: ‘Hateful, threatening messages’ led to ‘hard decision’ for Pritzker family Thanksgiving

    An emotional Gov. J.B. Pritzker clarified his family’s Thanksgiving plans on Tuesday, saying his wife and teenage daughter plan to remain in Florida “indefinitely” after a false social media post sparked “hateful, threatening messages” directed at the high school student. Pausing briefly to clear his throat before discussing the matter at his daily coronavirus briefing, the Democratic governor said the posts falsely portrayed his daughter as flouting COVID-19 restrictions at an outdoor restaurant with friends, igniting a firestorm directed at the girl even after the governor’s office had made it clear she was not in the photograph. “That was a...

    A humble observation about the “thanks for your service” greeting. This Veterans Day I’ve found myself responding to the many “thanks for your service” statements. After responding countless times, I decided to crunch the gist of my many replies into a single statement wherein I attempt to describe what drives vets to become vets and who truly should be thanked.

    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden kicked off Election Day by heading to morning mass at his family’s church in Delaware. Biden, his wife Jill and their granddaughters Finnegan and Natalie were spotted by reporters entering St. Joseph on the Brandywine in Wilmington just after 7 a.m. Afterward, the former vice president will travel to Pennsylvania in a last-ditch effort to sway undecided voters in Scranton and Philadelphia in the crucial swing state.

    I didnÂ’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016, but this year, only an act of God could stop me from doing so. In 2016, Trump had no track record. But now he does, and itÂ’s amazing. I didnÂ’t vote for Donald Trump in 2016, but this year, only an act of God could stop me from doing so.I make no excuses for TrumpÂ’s loose Twitter finger, and I still wince over the laundry list of cringe-worthy statements and undisciplined behavior weÂ’ve all witnessed for the past four years. However, what the Trump administration has accomplished is stunning.That has included landmark...
  • FNCs, Tucker Carlson reveals the Joe Biden "corrupt" family venture, while six million Americans are tuned in on TV!!!

    Last night, Tucker Carlson of Fox News Channel revealed the corruption known as the Democrat, Joe Biden Family Corruption Organization. Over six million Americans eagerly watched this episode, the highest Cable TV show ever recorded. The silence and cover up of this massive corruption by the Democrat Party and the Media Fake News is overwhelming. IMHO, if these Tucker Carlson, corrupt allegations are true & Joe Biden is elected POTUS, Both China & Russia will own Joe Biden from head to toe!!! Wake up Americans, you are about to lose both your freedom & country!!!

    Here’s a fascinating article from New York magazine on the massive gender gap between Trump and Biden supporters. It contains this eye-popping claim, buried deep down: Neither the societal shift away from traditional gender roles nor the downstream cultural consequences of that shift are anywhere near complete. As Rebecca Traister has incisively argued, the growing prevalence of singledom among America’s rising generation of women is one of the most potent forces in contemporary politics. In 2009, for the first time in history, there were more unmarried women in the United States than married ones. And today, young women in the...

    Former second lady Jill Biden said Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that “the American people don’t want to hear these smears against my family” when asked about the story of emails allegedly from Hunter Biden linking his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, to his Ukraine business dealings. Co-host Sunny Hostin asked, “Dr. Biden, your husband showed remarkable restraint that night when Trump repeatedly attacked your son and disrespected your family. I’ve spent a little bit of time with you, and I know how important your family is to you, and I know how protective you are over them. He...

    Gov. Gavin Newsom just gave Californians more regulations for an early Christmas present — and anyone hoping to celebrate the holidays with family better hope there’s a gift receipt. Just in time for the Thanksgiving and Christmas festivities, when most families gather with loved ones, California’s Democrat governor has issued a new set of regulations that bans gatherings of more than three households. Additionally, no indoor gatherings are permitted, so don’t plan on eating around the dining room table unless you lug it out into your backyard.

    No country should allow the sale of children or the intentional creation of orphans, which, make no mistake, is exactly what is happening with surrogacy. A British man living in the United States who has recently begun a romantic relationship with his daughter’s ex-boyfriend bought a baby and is being praised by media for it. Barrie Drewitt-Barlow paid about $100,000 for his new daughter, Valentina Willow. He is most proud of the baby girl’s looks.“Every parent thinks their baby is the best-looking baby in the world, but the truth is Valentina Willow is the best-looking baby in the world,” Drewitt-Barlow...

    As San Francisco District Attorney, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) refused to seek the death penalty in one of the city’s most high-profile murder cases, where an illegal alien MS-13 gang member killed a father and two of his sons. On June 22, 2008, 48-year-old Anthony Bologna and his three sons — 20-year-old Michael, 18-year-old Andrew, and 16-year-old Matthew — were driving home from a family barbeque in San Francisco, California, when illegal alien MS-13 gang member Edwin Ramos, driving alongside them, randomly opened fire. Ramos killed Anthony, Michael, and Matthew in the shooting. Prosecutors said Ramos shot the Bolognas because...

    The CDC wants Americans to have 'virtual' Thanksgivings, staycation holidays, and gatherings with only your household to avoid spreading COVID-19. But loneliness is a scourge, too. Make this the most joyous holiday season yet. In a nation fatigued by social distancing and dying to escape loneliness, the inimitable Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has issued recommendations for how to have a “safe” holiday season. Spoiler: A CDC-compliant season will not be “the most wonderful time of the year.”Our national public health experts have steered us confidently through some murky waters. After all, how else would we know that public...
