Consider that such “conservatives” as US Senators James Lankford (R-Oklahoma) and Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) now propose replacing Columbus Day as a national holiday with Juneteenth to celebrate the manumission of the last slaves in 1865. Tell me, please, what is the difference between these pusillanimous fake conservatives and those “woke” social justice warriors out in the streets who actually pull down monuments to Christopher Columbus? At least the rioters are honest about their designs. Lankford and Johnson think they can “compromise” their way around what is going on. Their lack of conviction, their cowardice, is revealed for all to see. And in the end the mob will not spare them, either.
Often as I work at my computer I keep on the Sirius FM Classical Music Service, “Symphony Hall,” with an occasional switch-over to a Bluegrass channel. Both, I believe, reflect at their finest superior elements of our Western cultural tradition with deep popular roots in our civilization, in the songs and compositions of people—our ancestors—which are inspired by their faith, their heroes, their tragedies and triumphs, events in their cumulative history.
Sometimes at night I try to catch a classic film on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) or on my preferred Encore Westerns Channel. Not so much on Encore Westerns, at least not yet, but TCM has begun bracketing certain politically-incorrect classics with “woke” commentary, usually by black and/or gay film critics. Some films, once shown on network television, will probably never see the light of day again. They are far too reactionary, mired in a time long ago, unable to be salvaged even by the most superficially talented social justice progressive movie maven.

A gun show in the region that was to have been held soon looks to have been postponed, thanks to increased COVID-19 lockdown measures. A number of folks whom I’ve recently helped to upgrade their AR-15 personal defense rifles, and who needed to sell others to pay for the upgrades, now can’t use that outlet to do so. This is where my readers may benefit, if you’re interested. I know AR-15’s are as scarce as hen’s teeth in many parts of the country right now.
After discussions with all involved, I’ve agreed to act as facilitator (NOT as a dealer!!!) in selling these weapons, because I have a lot of readers who may be interested. All transactions will be shipped from a dealer here and go through your local FFL, and all applicable laws, rules and regulations will be observed. That way no-one’s going to get into any difficulty with the authorities.
The AR-15’s are in very good to excellent condition (I wouldn’t hesitate to use any of them to defend myself). A couple are actually new and unfired; lower-end rifles that were bought, but not used, and replaced in the owner’s primary battery with upgraded versions. There are about half a dozen of them, ranging from 10½”-barreled compact pistols to 16″ carbines in 5.56x45mm, and one AR pistol in 7.62x39mm and another in .300 AAC Blackout. If ammunition is hard to find in your neck of the woods, some ammo can be supplied with each weapon at additional cost (requiring separate ORM-D shipping, of course). One gun has a laser sight on it, a couple more have folding iron sights, there are a couple of electronic dot sights, and at least two are available with Aimpoint PRO (Patrol Rifle Optic) sights, a top-notch “battle sight” (albeit expensive, but you pay for what you get – and, being used, these are about a hundred bucks cheaper than new ones). The PRO’s may be available separately, depending on demand.
I’m waiting until all the rifles have been assembled before listing them. However, if any reader is interested, drop me a line (my e-mail address is in my blog profile in the sidebar, under “About Me & Contact Info”). I’ll send you details of what’s available as soon as I have them, probably within a couple of weeks. It’ll be a case of “first come, first served”. If you want one, get your name in early so you’re high on the list! Prices will be reasonable by today’s standards, in the $800-$1,000 range, including shipping costs. Your local FFL dealer’s transfer fee will be for your account, of course; and ammunition, if needed, will also be extra (it’ll have to be shipped separately).
Now do go to his blog for his email and so forth:
It appears there may be a good reason Dan Snyder suddenly reversed course on changing the name of the Washington Redskins:
Not long after the Washington owner announced that his team would no longer be known as the Redskins, a series of cryptic tweets from local reporters emerged, warning of an imminent bombshell set to shake the franchise to its core.
“The warped and toxic culture of the Washington Football Team is about to be exposed in a sickening fashion . . . Again,” wrote CBS’ Jason La Canfora, a former team beat reporter.
Julie Donaldson of NBC Sports Washington also wrote, “What’s coming is disappointing and sad.”
Though it remains unclear what will surface, several other reporters have also been tipped off to news that could be devastating to the team.
“There is much more going on . . . than a name change,” Scott Abraham of ABC 7 wrote. “. . . And it’s not good. I did not get specifics, but get ready people.”
It is becoming ever more apparent that blackmail, rather than corporate profits, that is the engine of the US economy.
