About Me

In writing the "About Me" portion of this blog I thought about the purpose of the blog - namely, preventing the growth of Socialism & stopping the Death Of Democracy in the American Republic & returning her to the "liberty to abundance" stage of our history. One word descriptions of people's philosophies or purposes are quite often inadequate. I feel that I am "liberal" meaning that I am broad minded, independent, generous, hospitable, & magnanimous. Under these terms "liberal" is a perfectly good word that has been corrupted over the years to mean the person is a left-winger or as Mark Levin more accurately wrote in his book "Liberty & Tyranny" a "statist" - someone looking for government or state control of society. I am certainly not that & have dedicated the blog to fighting this. I believe that I find what I am when I consider whether or not I am a "conservative" & specifically when I ask what is it that I am trying to conserve? It is the libertarian principles that America was founded upon & originally followed. That is the Return To Excellence that this blog is named for & is all about.

An Analysis: Charlottesville Demonstration Helps Us Learn The Story Of America

"You can't change history, but you can learn from it." – part of a series of tweets on August 17 from President Trump regarding the movement to take down statues of Confederate leaders & our Founding Fathers who owned slaves. 
Democrats & centrist Republicans are having a field day with the statue issue because it is centered in political correctness & further hides the history lesson that the Democrat Party was the party of slavery, Black Codes, the Ku Klux Klan, segregation, & the Jim Crow laws that were in effect when many of the Confederate honoring statues were put in place.

Note – The research I did on the subject agreed with the vote totals shown on the above graphic for the 13th Amendment & showed the 14th Amendment passed with 100% Republican support & the 15th Amendment passed with 96% Republican support.  It also confirmed that no Democrat supported the 14th or 15th Amendments.

The disorder, chaos, & deadly violence in Charlottesville, Virginia last weekend was ostensibly about a permitted demonstration by battle-equipped White Supremacists (0.003% of the U.S. population) to protest the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue (see photo above) from Emancipation Park & counter protesters consisting of UVA students, local residents, & a group known as Antifa who showed up with baseball bats, tear gas, pepper spray, mace, & helmets.  In short both sides were in Charlottesville for a fight.  See photos below.

Don't waste time wondering whether or not the police stood down or whether you should side with the White Supremacists' First Amendment Right to protest, Antifa - the leftist militant group with roots traceable to the 1930s & more recently leading riots @ UC – Berkeley, the alt-Right, the alt-Left, George Soros, or the ACLU supporting the White Supremacists' constitutional rights.  There is something much larger than the Charlottesville skirmish going on – namely all of the aforementioned principals have come together, wittingly or unwittingly, to make it easy for the many insidious enemies of America – statists such as BO, MO, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, the Castro Brothers of Texas, Al Sharpton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor, the Clintons, & the hostile anti-American media - to undermine the nation's foundation by erasing our history & ultimately substituting a reinvented phony one – a dangerous idea.  Just look @ the hidden history lesson provided @ the top of this post regarding Democrats' involvement in slavery – not generally known & being exploited today by Democrats convincing Blacks & centrists that Republicans are & always have been the problem. 
The statist enemies are working double time to get rid of Trump & constantly asking him if he disavows the White Supremacists is the latest tactic.  Thanks to Mark Dice for documenting Trump's disavowals going back 17 years – please note Bernie Sanders' non-disavowal response on the video to the same question asked during the primaries which of course did not raise an eyebrow of the hostile anti-American media.  In fact it is hard to believe it was even brought up to Bernie other than the media was for Hillary @ the time.
Touching the emotions of many Americans who watch or hear about two hateful groups confronting each other concerning whether or not Confederate statues should remain in public parks will naturally lead to similar confrontations regarding tearing down all references, images, statues, namesakes, memorials, monuments, & homes of the Founding Fathers who owned slaves. 
Specific projects already being mentioned include renaming the Washington Monument, removing a statue of George Washington in a Chicago park, defunding & removing the Jefferson Memorial, blowing up Mount Rushmore, replacing sculptures in Statuary Hall, tearing down a statue of TR in NYC, & removing Andrew Jackson's name & picture on the $20 bill. 
Not mentioned so far is the removal of any tributes to Democrat President Woodrow Wilson who was an open racist & as president resegregated the federal bureaucracy (source – Mark Levin, Rediscovering Americanism, page 55) or WV Democrat Senator Robert Byrd who had been a paid officer in the Ku Klux Klan with responsibility for recruiting new members.
Indeed Emancipation Park, the location of the demonstration described in this post, was renamed two months ago after being known as Lee Park for 100 years.
As older Americans die off, & since the ideas & principles of the founding of America are no longer taught in government schools, the removal of the aforementioned remembrances or closing down of Founder's homes & memorials will finish the job of erasing from memory what happened in 1776.  Our history can then be modernized by presenting in books & teaching in government schools what happened in 1937 - the year that statist Democrats believe the country was founded. 
The notoriety of the racially charged Charlottesville demonstration, & probably many more like it to come before it's over, provides the perfect excuse for a politically correct society to destroy its history while simultaneously jeopardizing its future by being led by those who are only interested in making everyone dependent on government.
Don't start on the slippery slope of Confederate statue removal because the statist Democrats will not be satisfied until they remove every trace of the libertarians who shaped our history & gave all of us the freedom we have today.
The purpose of this post is captured by former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice & former NBA star Charles Barkley – two people who could not be more unalike except they both clearly see the story of America as described in the referenced post, why we don't want to wipe out our history to make us feel better, & what great things we should do to make our futures better.


  1. Did not see this in your article, all this history removing is a prelude to removing the Constitution. Look who signed it as the monuments come down. The Democrat leaders are perpetuating removals.

    They better start putting some of these people in jail or it will not stop. Have you read the Jews were told by a Rabbi to move out of a country the Rabbi deemed it lost?

    1. Excellent point about the Constitution, but we have to remember that the states ratified it so it would take quite some undoing.

      The Rabbi in Barcelona told Jews to move out of Spain because he feels Europe is lost. He says move to Israel.

    The elite statist Dems end game is a new Marxist America. They do not outright say this though. Instead they work behind scenes to divide us to max extent possible. This will then increase probability of their silent coup. Meanwhile they use Maoist tactics to silence free speech, lie repeatedly to manipulate public opinion (ex Trump Russian Collusion), and pin all Republican and Trump voters as racists.

    On August 20 on Fox News, well respected UVA political science professor Larry Sabato, outright stated he feared a pending Civil War. He cited that the current political environment is closest to what America witnessed in 1860. He specifically cited fact that we have 2 much different sides that essentially do not consider or listen to the other sides points of views, as a main reason for his fear.

    What to do?
    The courage to cite Larry's concerns, a call to champion our First Amendment guarantee of free speech, tout colleges and media roles to debate opposing different points of views, and lay out, with exhaustive details of the end games of both sides leaders - a fundamentally transformed Marxist America with its collective and full Government controls and mandates, versus a society represented by free markets, individual choices and freedoms.

    President Trump - please make this case Now!

  3. I believe Charlottesville was staged.

    The organizer, Jason Kessler, was an Obama supporter and an Occupy protester according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. He may have had an epiphany and became a white supremacist leader in a few months. I find that hard to believe. Or he may have been a professional protester. A mercenary.
    I saw posts recruiting protestors. They said bring your guns as Virginia is an open carry state.
    The left was recruiting and paying protestors at $25 /hour. I saw one post that said there were multiple busses parked near the protest. People were getting posters, flags and signs next to the busses including Antifa, Confederate, BLM and Nazi items. No one seemed to care who picked up what. There was definitely no animosity between anyone.
    The police stood down saying it was a dangerous situation and a race war. The governor and mayor make false statements that there were stashes of weapons scattered throughout the town.
    When that failed to materialize, a car was driven into the crowd.

    What do we know about that? The driver, James Alex Fields Jr, was a 20 year old Ohio man. Not many 20 year olds I know can afford a newer Dodge Charger. The only information we have about him is a Kentucky man claims he was a history teacher a few years ago and claimed Fields made supremacist remarks as a freshman, which would have been 6+ years ago. The white shirt he was wearing “were freely given out to anyone in attendance.” There are reports any social media accounts of his have been deleted or were non-existent. Could he have been another mercenary?

    Things don’t make any sense.

    1. Excellent points.

      I have similar feelings but did not connect all the dots you did.

      Please reread the post starting with “Don’t waste time wondering whether or not the police stood down . . .” & you have my idea of why it happened. Whether they came together “wittingly or unwittingly” the goal was & is to destroy Trump & transforming the U.S. by “undermine(ing) the nation’s foundation by erasing our history & ultimately substituting a reinvented phony one.”

      We are facing a lot of evil.

      Great job in connecting the dots. Please forward this info to the Trump admin. The Left's Saul Alinsky tactics must be exposed, else Charlottesville maybe become Trump's Katrina.

    3. Thanks for the feedback. I was afraid I, maybe, had gone out on a limb.
