  • MLK Jr Day Should Require Classroom Attendance

    Schools should be in full session on MLK Jr Day without exception. Isn’t the encouragement of open dialogue and continuing education the primary reasons for MLK Jr Day? And if so, why aren’t students in full attendance on the very day that honors this man? There is simply no better way to honor the national holiday than dedicating his story, lessons, and experiences to the students for an entire day.
  • 2022: More Stupidity, More Arrogance, More Evil, More Rebellion

    Chaos will reign as the future upends the past. Chaos doesn’t lend itself to prediction.Stupidity, arrogance, and evil ultimately destroy themselves, but their rampage was unabated in 2021. A group of stupid, arrogant, and evil people are using a virus and its variants to shepherd the world into a scheme of totalitarian global governance. This was conspiracy theory when the virus first surfaced; now it’s nakedly obvious reality. The one redeeming feature of the year was that more people saw the light. The self-impressed and self-anointed rule not by claim of divine right, but by claim of superior intelligence and...
  • The Left is trying to erase the meaning of citizenship

    Sometime this month, the Border Patrol will make its 2 millionth arrest of those illegally entering the southern border since Joe Biden became president. Close to half of those arrested after their illegal entry have been released into the United States by Biden. They will never be deported. Now, California wants to give all those illegal immigrants free healthcare. New York City wants to give noncitizens the right to vote. If Democrats have their way, citizenship will soon be as meaningless as they are making the southern border to be.

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 16 January 2022 | John Semmens
    While many on the right are calling the Supreme Court's ruling that President Biden's attempt to compel businesses to force employees to get vaccinated is unconstitutional a victory for personal freedom, the White House doesn't agree. Presidential Press Secretary Jen Psaki explained that "the President is going to channel his inner Andrew Jackson and ignore the Supreme Court's ruling. As he sees it, the Supreme Court has its opinion and he has his own. He has no obligation to support its ruling, especially where the nation's health is at stake. He has ordered businesses to proceed with the implementation of...
  • Stacey Abrams: Media invention

    It’s good to be Stacey Abrams. She’s the toast of the entertainment and news industries, and all she had to do was lose an election to a Republican. Rarely has so much praise and honor been awarded to a person so undeserving. Abrams is a “political visionary,” according to the press. She’s a voting rights champion and pioneer. She’s a savior whose tireless altruism is this country's best hope for a brighter, more equitable future. If one relied on her adoring press, one would think Abrams is a centrist Democrat who has revolutionized national politics. One would think she is...

    The West is destroying itself. The best player in the world in full health looksxset to be deported from a nation that could once pride itself on good sportsmanship to protect public health and order. This is what A sense of shame could have prevented. Instead mass psychosis rules. Will the federal court be strong enough to overturn it?

    On this episode of The Resistance Library, Sam and David discuss the Battle of the Bulge. When we think about American GIs in the European theater of World War II, much of our image comes from the Battle of the Bulge. Named so because of the distinctive "bulge" shape of the front lines, this is where so many American men laid down their lives on fields of frozen mud in France.

    In honor of the January 6 incursion into the Capitol, Former President Barack Obama released a statement asserting that "one year ago a violent attack on our Capitol made it clear just how fragile the American experiment in democracy really is. In the November 2020 election more than 81 million votes were cast for Joe Biden. Rather than accepting this ringing endorsement for the person voters wanted to rule them for the next four years, Republicans are still working to torpedo his agenda." "As the last year has demonstrated, the average American has supported the President by obeying his request...

    Illinois Review ^ | January 7, AD 2022 | John F Di Leo
    What is an insurrection? Merriam-Webster says it’s “an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government.” That’s pretty good, but it requires knowing what “revolting” is (other than the major television networks’ current primetime lineups). Merriam-Webster is helpful here: a revolt is “a determined, armed uprising.” What does this mean in today’s context? For the past year, the Left has been united in a continuous drumbeat that conservative supporters of President Trump staged an "insurrection" at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021. Did they? Now, we should remember that President Trump was indeed holding...

    Call this one last lump of coal in Joe Biden’s stocking for 2021, and a harbinger of what might be coming next month for fourth-quarter GDP. Even with expectations set at a relatively modest 422,000 for job growth in December, the US economy couldn’t make it even halfway to the mark. Instead, we only added 199,000 jobs last month, the lowest growth in three months: Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 199,000 in December, and the unemployment rate declined to 3.9 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment continued to trend up in leisure and hospitality, in...

    Zac Kriegman had the ideal résumé for the professional-managerial class: a bachelors in economics from Michigan and a J.D. from Harvard and years of experience with high-tech startups, a white-shoe law firm, and an econometrics research consultancy. He then spent six years at Thomson Reuters Corporation, the international media conglomerate, spearheading the company’s efforts on artificial intelligence, machine learning, and advanced software engineering. By the beginning of 2020, Kriegman had assumed the title of Director of Data Science and was leading a team tasked with implementing deep learning throughout the organization. But within a few months, this would all collapse....

    One Year Later, More Lingering Questions About January 6 If Republicans take over Congress next year, they must demand a full investigation under a new select committee. By Julie Kelly January 3, 2022 A bombshell report just published in Newsweek details an in-depth, secret operation conducted by the Justice Department before and during January 6. Contrary to the lamentations of FBI Director Christopher Wray that he wished his agency had had better resources to prevent the Capitol breach, hundreds of elite forces under Wray’s authority were on stand-by days just before the protest, and even on the ground as it...

    While the snowy weather may have other plans, Democrats are still tentatively gearing up for a day of “commemoration” on January 6th. Part of that will be CNN hosting a live event from the Capitol — in what is sure to be a grotesque, gaudy spectacle — in which they trump up the world’s first “insurrection” that didn’t involve the use of deadly weapons or anyone actually attempting to take over the government. Contrary to the hysteria, someone stealing Nancy Pelosi’s beer may be a crime, but it’s not an organized coup.Yet, Democrats were also banking on another happening to...

    All human cultures have traditions around death. In the western world, we have wakes and funerals, obituaries and tombstones, private or public burials. Famous people get retrospectives on the evening news; prominent politicians may lie in state at a capitol rotunda. It’s the printed word, however, that’s most interesting to me. There’s a rule that governs all these retrospectives and obituaries: Never speak ill of the dead. It’s a reasonable standard, clearly written with some eye – conscious or no – to the Golden Rule. We hope nobody will speak ill of us when we die, so we don’t speak...
