Our Belittled Founding Father
Post Date: 2022-11-29 09:05:43 by Ada
Thomas Paine (1737-1809) is a figure from our revolutionary past who emerged from obscurity to upset the world with his popular writings. “He wrote the three top-selling literary works of the eighteenth century, which inspired the American Revolution, issued a historic battle cry for individual rights, and challenged the corrupt power of government churches,”researcher Jim Powell tells us. After enduring a long illness Paine, 72, died in Greenwich Village, New York City on June 8, 1809. Though he was known throughout the world his friends, such as they were, were in short supply. Wikipedia says only “six mourners came to his funeral, two of whom were black, most likely ...

American Pravda: Lost Histories of the Great War
Post Date: 2022-11-28 07:43:24 by Ada
Veterans Day came earlier this month, a public holiday that under the name of Armistice Day had originally celebrated the end of the First World War, itself then known as the Great War to those living during that era, over a century ago. Friends of the Palo Alto Library runs a local monthly book sale, now reopened after nearly two years of Covid closures, and I usually attend, often buying for a pittance items that have caught my eye. A few weeks ago I picked up for a quarter a copy of Adam Hochschild’s widely praised 2011 volume To End All Wars, his account of the British anti-war movement during World War I, which I’d seen very favorably reviewed in the Times and elsewhere ...

How Much Longer Will Thanksgiving Be a National Holiday?
Post Date: 2022-11-24 14:12:15 by Ada
This is a legitimate question. According to the New York Times’ 1619 Project, according to what is taught in US universities and public schools, and according to what the American left and those influenced by them believe, to celebrate Thanksgiving is to celebrate the racism of white supremacy. As this belief is growing and not shrinking, how much longer before Thanksgiving becomes a day of atonement for racist sins? Erasing national holidays is a way of erasing a culture. As Thanksgiving grows increasingly offensive to people of color, as Easter, once a Christian celebration of the Resurrection, disappears into baskets of candy for children, and as the celebration of Christmas is ...

Statesmen vs. Vandals
Post Date: 2022-11-03 21:07:47 by X-15
In the 20th century, there was no doubt that that section of the country most patriotic, most “American” and most “Christian” in its moral values was the South. Also called “The Bible Belt,” the states of the South had more flags, more patriotic displays and more pride in America and its institutions than any other region in the nation. Percentage-wise, more Southerners served in the armed forces than did the sons and daughters of any other section. In short, when it came to support and promotion of the “good ole’ USA,” the South was, hands down, America’s greatest resource. Of course, this was rather odd given the history of the nation, ...

Ancient DNA analysis sheds light on the early peopling of South America by Florida Atlantic University
Post Date: 2022-11-02 16:45:06 by Ada
The figure depicts the deep ancestries of the ancient individuals of the Americas and archaic ancestry in ancient South America and Panama. The pie chart radius reflects the proportion of shared archaic ancestry in the individual. Credit: Florida Atlantic University The Americas were the last continent to be inhabited by humans. An increasing body of archaeological and genomic evidence has hinted to a complex settlement process. This is especially true for South America, where unexpected ancestral signals have raised perplexing scenarios for the early migrations into different regions of the continent. Many unanswered questions still persist, such as whether the first humans migrated ...

American Pravda: World War III and World War II?
Post Date: 2022-10-24 11:16:52 by Ada
Every now and then, I rediscover the vastness of the Internet. All this year I’d been quite interested in our conflict with Russia over Ukraine and I’d also begun separately following the public statements of Prof. Jeffrey Sachs of Columbia University, but until last week I hadn’t noticed his late August interview on exactly that subject. Although his appearance on Amy Goodman’s Democracy Now! show had accumulated more than two million views, I’d never come across it. I’d highly recommend listening to his remarks, as well as his similar presentations from earlier this month at the Grayzone and on Tulsi Gabbard’s new show. Video Link Sachs has ...

Today in Aviation History: First Flight of The North American Aviation XP-86
Post Date: 2022-10-03 14:27:05 by X-15
On October 1, 1947, after three years of development in which 801,386 engineering hours and 340,594 drafting hours had been expended, the first prototype North American Aviation XP-86 (company designation NA- 140), serial number 45-59597, was ready for its first flight at Muroc Dry Lake in the high desert, north of Los Angeles, California. Completed at North American’s Inglewood plant on 8 August 1947, it was trucked to Muroc in mid-September. It was reassembled, everything was checked out, and after a few taxi tests, company test pilot George S. Welch took off for an initial familiarization flight. Chief Test Pilot Bob Chilton flew chase in an XP-82 Twin Mustang with a company ...

Archaeologists Unearth First Century Roman Refrigerator in Bulgaria
Post Date: 2022-09-30 18:48:01 by X-15
Over the last few decades, archaeologists from Bulgaria and Poland have been performing excavations at the site where the Roman legionary fortress of Novae once stood. The ruins of the fortress can be found in northern Bulgaria along the Danube River, where Roman occupiers established and defended a territorial border 2,000 years ago. The ongoing excavations there have produced a number of remarkable and enlightening finds, and the list of these unearthed marvels now includes an ancient example of a durable and popular technology - the refrigerator. As reported by the Polish Press Agency (PAP), a team of archaeologists under the leadership of Professor Piotr Dyczek from the Antiquity of ...

Destroying the Past to Change the Present
Post Date: 2022-09-28 22:13:01 by X-15
On June 17th, 2015, a deranged white man, Dylan Roof, attacked an all- black prayer meeting in a South Carolina church killing nine of the participants. Of course, most rational, intelligent (that is, ordinary) Americans saw the mass shooting as another opportunity for the “gun violence” crowd to demand an end to the rights of law-abiding Americans to own guns; and indeed, for a few hours or maybe a day, the matter pursued that course. However, to the surprise of most, the matter suddenly launched into a very different crusade, rising to a frenzied pitch in mere days! Suddenly there appeared on the internet photos of the malefactor holding the Confederate Battle flag! As a result, ...

Golden Age Air Museum The Fokker Scourge
Post Date: 2022-09-23 16:46:13 by X-15
The Golden Age Air Museum held their annual, vintage style air show during the Labor Day Weekend. The museum’s home, a small grass strip complete with old-time hangars and outbuildings in picturesque countryside near Bethel, Pennsylvania, is a throw back to a different era, and a major part of the experience. This year’s air show theme was dubbed The Fokker Scourge! and featured four replica Fokker Dr.I Triplanes, fighter planes which were feared by all who faced them in battle during WWI. The Four Fokker Triplane replicas in attendance included John Elliott’s example, sporting the red livery made famous by Baron Manfred Richthofen (aka The Red Baron), the Golden Age Air ...

Lessons from a Massacre Committed 450 Years Ago
Post Date: 2022-08-29 10:22:16 by Ada
The infamous St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre was responsible for the death of thousands, but the horrible aftermath was also the beginning of religious toleration in the West On this day in 1572, French Catholics slaughtered thirty thousand Protestants (known as Huguenots) in the streets of Paris. The French king and the pope helped organize the the biggest religious massacre in Europe in the 1500s. Roughly half the Bovards living in Paris were killed in the bloodbath. Three surviving Bovards fled past drunken guards at Paris’s city gates, raced to the coast, hijacked a rowboat, and made it across the English Channel and took refuge in London. Or at least that’s the Bovard ...

Post Date: 2022-08-28 15:39:50 by BTP Holdings
The Battle of the Little Bighorn took place on June 25–26, 1876. Commonly referred to as Custer's Last Stand, the battle was between the combined forces of the Lakota Sioux, Northern Cheyenne, and Arapaho tribes fighting 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army.

How Western Civilization Was Erased
Post Date: 2022-08-15 07:13:15 by Ada
When I was a student, school principles and university administrations were very supportive of teachers. It was understood that once teachers could be accused by students, learning discipline would break down, and control would be lost over grading, standards, and course content. This is what has happened. A teacher’s life has changed from imparting information and challenging ideas to students into dodging accusations from leftists, feminists, blacks, homosexuals, and transgendered. Today even use of a gender pronoun can be cause for termination. The slippery slope began with the sexual revolution. Female students began seducing professors for better grades. Feminists turned this ...

Republicans attack Matt Walsh for telling the truth about slavery
Post Date: 2022-08-02 08:04:49 by Ada
One of the most pernicious things that has happened recently in America is the 1619 Project, an error-riddled “history” of the United States that presents our nation as one predicated solely on the evils of African slavery, beginning when Europeans first set foot on North American soil. This original sin, says The 1619 Project, tainted everything that followed. Therefore, only racists can love America. Obviously, Democrats embraced this history but, when commentator Matt Walsh discussed the larger history of world slavery, he learned that some Republicans don’t want the truth to be put out there either. In 2019, Nikole Hannah-Jones, who knows nothing about history but a ...
