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 America as an irredeemably racist empire built solely to oppress minorities—as “ideological poison.”
Earlier this year, China successfully weaponized American wokeness to drive divisions deeper in the U.S., seeking to evade responsibility for the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak by complaining that any term linking the virus to its Chinese origins was racist. Woke reporters soon complied with Beijing’s orders and began badgering the president repeatedly on his use of terms consistent with the naming of new diseases.
“Critical race theory, the 1619 Project, and the crusade against American history is toxic propaganda,” Trump said, “that if not removed, will dissolve the civic bonds that tie us together. It will destroy our country.” Continue reading “”
I wondered why a burglar was in a flower garden, then I realized it was the name of the town in Texas. My Bad.
A home invasion suspect is in critical condition after being shot by a Flower Mound homeowner on Sunday afternoon.
Flower Mound police responded to a shooting call at approximately 2:22 p.m. Sunday in the 5400 block of Briar Lane.
During the 911 call, the homeowner stated he had shot at an unknown male and female, who had allegedly broken into his house through the back door. After the gunshot, both individuals fled the location in a vehicle.
Upon arrival, police were able to locate the vehicle a short distance away, where it was determined the male suspect had been shot one time in the chest.
The 29-year-old male suspect was transported to Medical Center Denton where he was immediately taken into surgery. He has since been moved into ICU and is in critical condition.
The 30-year-old female suspect was taken to the Police Department for questioning, and was later placed in custody for an unrelated parole violation warrant.
At the scene, Flower Mound detectives were able to determine the male had forced entry and confronted the homeowner. The homeowner told the suspect to leave several times and warned him, without success. Police said the homeowner felt threatened as the suspect kept moving toward him, which is when he fired one shot at the suspect.
Police are questioning the female suspect, but as of Sunday night have not determined a motive.
No charges are expected to be filed on the homeowner as a result of the incident, police said.

As the Democrat presidential campaign degenerates into “Weekend at Gropey’s,” a question arises: Assuming the Dems and their media minions somehow drag that rickety, basement-dwelling weirdo across the finish line, how do they get rid of him post-inauguration? Clearly, he would be a figurehead as Dr. Demento – sorry, Dr. Jill – and Kamala Harris joust for control before a backdrop of scheming pinko puppetmasters. But sooner or later, probably sooner, the Dem elite is going to try to put him out to pasture. How could they pull it off? And can they? Let’s see…
A few caveats: I think Donald Trump is going to win, so this is all hypothetical. The only bright spot for the Dems is the garbage polls his lying mainstream media allies keep pushing, and the liars are even having to concede that those are tightening, especially in states that matter. We’re days away from them pulling Grandpa Badfinger out of the debate. My money is still on the “I won’t normalize Trump’s racist cisgender sexism by appearing on stage with him” excuse, but “I fear the flu” is a close second. His recent catastrophic appearances outside his dungeon lair demonstrate that this guy couldn’t hack a debate if he was snorting rails of Namenda like Hunter hoovering blow on New Year’s Eve in Medellin. Trump holds an indisputable edge in other important areas, too, like enthusiasm, ground game, and continence. Continue reading “”
Putting the virtue signaling morons right where they deserve to be, between the proverbial ‘rock and a hard place’. Ahhh HAHAHAHAHAH!
The Department of Education has informed Princeton University that it is under investigation following the school president’s declaration that racism was “embedded” in the institution.
President Christopher Eisgruber published an open letter earlier this month claiming that “racism and the damage it does to people of color persist at Princeton” and that “racist assumptions” are “embedded in structures of the University itself.”
According to a letter the Department of Education sent to Princeton that was obtained by the Washington Examiner, such an admission from Eisgruber raises concerns that Princeton has been receiving tens of millions of dollars of federal funds in violation of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which declares that “no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Eisgruber’s letter branding the 274-year-old university racist came after a summer of unrest rife with race riots and an open letter from hundreds of Princeton faculty members who wrote, “Anti-Black racism has a visible bearing upon Princeton’s campus makeup.” The admission was followed by dozens of “anti-racist” policy change demands. Among them were calls for select faculty race quotas and to “reconsider” the use of standardized testing for admissions. Continue reading “”

Everyone is puzzled by this. I am not puzzled by this. It is simplicity itself:
After a stray bullet nearly hit a 4-year-old girl in Monroe, Snohomish County Councilmember Sam Low has introduced an emergency ordinance that would expand the no-shooting zone around the city. Now, the council wants to hear from the public. Low joined the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH to discuss.
“This is a growing area of Monroe up on the hill. There’s been about 800 homes added in the last several years in this area that used to be just kind of rolling hills and nothing else there. All of a sudden, we have all this development there, and over the last few years we’ve had several shooting incidents. The last two over the last year and a half have been bullets that have come from unincorporated county into the city and hitting residences in the city,” he said.
It seems that the shootings haven’t been nefarious in nature but are accidental, often occurring around the holidays from stray bullets. Continue reading “”
TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (News Service of Florida) — In a legal fight that started after the 2018 mass shooting at a Parkland high school, attorneys for the state and the National Rifle Association this month detailed dueling arguments about the constitutionality of a Florida law that prevents people under age 21 from buying guns.
The two sides filed motions for summary judgment as they try to sway Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker, with gun-control groups also submitting briefs last week in support of the law.
After 17 people were killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland in 2018, the Legislature and then-Gov. Rick Scott approved a wide-ranging measure that includes the ban on gun purchases by people under 21. The NRA quickly challenged the ban and contended in its motion this month that the law violates Second Amendment and equal-protection rights.
“While Florida has an interest in promoting public safety, particularly in schools, it cannot show that the ban is the least restrictive means to advance that interest. Nor could any ban be,” NRA lawyers wrote in their Sept. 3 motion. “The ban infringes the right of all 18-to-20-year-olds to purchase firearms for the exercise of their Second Amendment rights, even for self-defense in the home. The ban does not just limit the right, it obliterates it. The ban could not possibly be the least restrictive alternative. Nor is there evidence in the record that the Legislature considered the availability of less restrictive alternatives.” Continue reading “”
Arabella Advisors houses some of the most prominent liberal groups on the left, including Demand Justice, which fights Trump’s judicial nominations, and numerous prominent state-based groups. Funds at Arabella are also used to push grants to outside groups not contained within their network, including David Brock’s American Bridge, John Podesta’s Center for American Progress, the Center for Popular Democracy, and America Votes
The point person for the Fight Back Table, a coalition of liberal organizations planning for a “post-Election Day political apocalypse scenario,” leads a progressive coalition that is part of a massive liberal dark money network.
Deirdre Schifeling, who leads the Fight Back Table’s efforts to prepare for “mass public unrest” following the Nov. 3 election, founded and is campaign director for Democracy for All 2021 Action, a project of Arabella Advisors’ Sixteen Thirty Fund. The Sixteen Thirty Fund is a dark money network that provides wealthy donors anonymity as they push large sums into the left’s organizational efforts. Schifeling’s group is one of dozens that use Arabella Advisors to add an extra layer of secrecy to their funding.
The connections suggest that post-election mobilization isn’t just the project of a liberal fringe, but that powerful Democratic Party interest groups are also involved. Continue reading “”
A St. Louis Park Minneapolis man, who abandoned his family while vacationing in Morocco, has been charged by federal authorities five years later with joining an ISIS battalion trained to carry out suicide attacks in Europe.
Abdelhamid Al-Madioum, 23, was indicted in U.S. District Court with providing material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Al-Madioum, who lost much of one arm from an apparent air assault in Iraq, was in court in Minneapolis on Wednesday after his overseas capture by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the major fighting force against ISIS, who then handed him over to the FBI. Continue reading “”

and NOW you’re complaining? H.L. Mencken was right when he opined that: “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
And even now, Miss Moron Bender is whining about why the Police aren’t doing their jobs. It’s like she’s a baby duck who wakes up to a new world every morning.
The meeting was slated as a Minneapolis City Council study session on police reform.
But for much of the two-hour meeting, council members told police Chief Medaria Arradondo that their constituents are seeing and hearing street racing which sometimes results in crashes, brazen daylight carjackings, robberies, assaults and shootings. And they asked Arradondo what the department is doing about it.
“Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’?” said Jamal Osman, newly elected council member of Ward 6. He said he’s already been inundated with complaints from residents that calls for police aren’t being answered.
“That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen,” Osman said. Continue reading “”

Slugged with his own gun. Yeah, that’ll play well in jail.
An 18-year-old is accused of trying to rob a taxi driver and getting shot with his own gun during a struggle, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were called out at about 12:20 a.m. Tuesday morning on reports of a robbery near the intersection of SW 188th Court and SW Farmington Road. The cab driver told deputies that he picked up 18-year-old Josiah Johnson in Gresham. When Johnson asked to go to the Aloha area, the driver asked for partial payment up front or collateral because of the long drive.
Deputies said Johnson gave the driver his cell phone, and then they drove to a home near the intersection of SW 188th Court and SW Farmington Road. When they arrived, the driver said Johnson tried to pay with a fake $100 bill, which he immediately recognized was fraudulent. That’s when deputies said Johnson pulled a gun out and pointed it at the back of the cab driver’s head and started yelling.
According to deputies, the driver saw an opportunity to grab the gun from Johnson, so he did. A struggle over the gun ensued, and it went off – hitting Johnson. Both Johnson and the cab driver got out of the car, where the fight continued. Deputies said the cab driver was able to get the gun away from Johnson, throw it away from both of them, and yell for help.
Neighbors heard the commotion, helped the cab driver hold Johnson down, and called 911. Deputies arrived shortly after. Johnson was arrested at the scene and taken to a local hospital where he was treated and released for his injuries, according to deputies.
Johnson was later booked into the Washington County jail on:
