One April Morning
(Stand your ground) “The shot heard round the world” is a phrase that refers to the opening shot of the battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, which began the American Revolutionary War and led to the creation of the United States of America.
“Lay down your arms and there will be no trouble.” — yeah, right
The British had an easy go of it as they marched though Lexington to Concord. Not such an easy time on the way back, though.
In Congress, July 4, 1776
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security…
I was thinking about Congressman Eric Swalwell
He’s worked as a Chinese access agent, a spy.
The last time a hanging, drawing and quartering punishment took place in the UK was in Portsmouth on 24 August 1782. This punishment was meted out to Scottish spy David Tyrie, who, while working as a clerk for the Navy office in Portsmouth, passed important Admiralty documents and activities to the French.
The Hampshire Chronicle then reported on 31 August on the event as follows :
After hanging exactly twenty-two minutes, he was lowered upon the sledge, and the sentence literally put in execution. His head was severed from his body, his heart taken out and burnt, his privities cut off, and his body quartered. He was then put into a coffin, and buried among the pebbles by the sea-side. […] – A more dreadful, affecting execution was perhaps never seen. It was computed by many intelligent persons on the spot, that there was not less than a hundred thousand spectators present on the occasion.
Immediately after the burial sailors dug up the coffin and cut the remains into small pieces as souvenirs and lucky charms.
Swalwell…it would send a message to the nation, to Congress and to the House Intelligence Committee.
Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds recently told the Biden Administration that Iowa cannot accept children who crossed into the U.S. illegally without “resources or a clear and comprehensive plan for federal support.” That’s according to Associated Press (AP).
“This is due to limited resources and administrative concerns. We have an obligation to take care of our children first and absent the resources or a clear and comprehensive plan for federal support, we were unable to accommodate the request. We acknowledge this is an incredibly saddening and difficult situation.”
Some say Reynolds’ stance is in contrast to her willingness to accept refugees in 2019 when Donald Trump was president.
However, the refugees Reynolds agreed to accept in 2019 reportedly underwent rigorous screening and vetting processes.
Nearly 19,000 children traveling alone crossed the Mexican border into the U.S. last month, some as young as 3 years of age, according to Customs and Border Protection.
Many of the children are being held in overcrowded facilities for longer than the three days they are supposed to be held, according to AP.
The media’s dishonest reporting during the Trump Administration passed all bounds as their democrat (and many Republican) masters, up to their neck in the swamp, called the situation, “kids in cages”.
The Radicalization of Black America
This is an interesting article (h/t Claudio) that is worth a read. It’s not going to tell you anything that you don’t already know. Part of the article singles out the African American Parent Coalition for Education Equity (AAPCEE), a group dedicated to sowing the seeds of disharmony, funded by the James Irvine Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
And the ultimate goal, the article poses the question? Fanatics are useful. Imams and emirs love nothing more than to create armies of the faithful who can be manipulated through their blind zealotry. We see that here, right now. Black sacredness is at present the single most powerful force in U.S. politics. From city halls to statehouses to Washington, D.C., to Hollywood and corporate boardrooms, it’s all about “Will this offend blacks? How do blacks feel about this?”
Because if you disrespect the new Mohammeds, you might find yourself figuratively killed off (canceled) on social media or in the workplace, or literally killed off by rioters.
Of course, as Arab leaders have discovered to their dismay over the years, you can’t always control the fanatics. You create an army of purity police looking to stamp out blasphemy, and there’s a decent chance that soon enough you’ll be the one who’s accused of offending the faith. It’s a risky strategy.
Very quietly, and with no legacy media coverage whatsoever, the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information), a branch of the federal government’s NIH (National Institute for Health), has published a peer reviewed study out of Stanford University that concludes that face masks are not only useless as a protective measure against Covid, but also, in many cases, detrimental to the people wearing them. Cloth face masks, in particular, can be a significant source of contamination and can exacerbate breathing and heart issues, due to the restriction of oxygen flow, and the rebreathing of trapped carbon dioxide. In addition, there are studies included in this study that strongly suggest asymptomatic people do not spread Covid.
