It was appalling to learn that on June 4th, Governor Ralph Northam of the state of Virginia ordered the removal of the statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from it’s long standing perch on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia. A beautiful piece of United States history.
Only weak humans are afraid of our history. And the way they deal with it is to destroy it and remove it from sight…which is nothing less than an veiled attempt to control the citizens…and nothing less than the barbarism displayed in Afghanistan in 2013 by “Islam” and “Sharia” believers! FORTUNATELY it does NOT remove it from history only from the memories of the current fools and those who are afraid of the knowledge of history, right and wrong!
We should also be reminded that Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam is himself a former officer in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. The U.S. Army must have not been teaching much about bravery when he was enlisted as a military soldier. Retired or not, Northham should have the courage and conviction for all the citizens and face the opposing history of our republic with honor and distinction.
General Robert E. Lee failed and was defeated in his efforts for the Confederacy, but he was not defeated or did he fail in his devotion, honor and respect of the Republic of the United States of America.
Governor Northam is unfortunately much less of an honorable man, soldier and elected leader with his order to remove a long gone fellow soldier from the sight of all citizens. And that’s not to mention removing an important piece of United States and world history. Northam is no better than those of the Taliban outlaws who destroyed centuries old Buddhists statues in Afghanistan.

Just in case you have never read them or maybe forgot what the U.S. Bill of Rights GUARANTEE’s, please read the First Five Articles. While you do please note NO-Where does it give or imply the authority that the President, Congress, Governor, Two-Bit State AG or any health official can “SUSPEND” them for any reason, including a pandemic! Arrest me when attempting to violate my usage of ANY of these, and make me richer then Bezos or Gates, please!
When I first heard our President’s warning to Iran about shooting their boats out of the water if a threat was perceived…THESE images immediately came to mind! I recall being terribly upset over this because OUR front line soldiers were thoroughly embarrassed (in the fourth image, please note that the captured woman Marine forced to wear an Islamic keffiyeh). In turn, each and every US patriot and veteran was equally embarrassed!!! Personally, I have never gotten over this…as well as my anger at Barry Obama and Hildabeast Clinton for doing relatively NOTHING about it and allowing these images to be published around world!
With this occurrence, I have a totally different feeling and am grateful for the immediate strong stand by our Commander and Chief. I pray this will NEVER happen again!
…Yep, even for CA. Speaker of the CA. House of Representatives explains why he urges a NO vote on Prop. 13…
I cannot say who created this graphic, but it is right on the money. Talk about over reaction. Sit back down American, relax and enjoy the race with ALL THE DRIVERS!
…once again “news” papers are shooting themselves in the foot. Today’s issue (of the Fairfield CA., Daily Republic) on the front page, I submit evidence that the complete story is NOT being told to faithful readers. The article appears: “Stay-at-home orders extended as state deaths near 600” written by someone at the Tribune Content Agency (whatever that is). Suggestion to the Editor, that this “boiler plate” be edited a little closer so that the complete truth is told. BTW, lying by “omission” is failure to correct pre-existing misconceptions.
In the 2nd paragraph the writer states “…California has recorded 598 deaths (caused by Coronavirus).” Looking at this number squarely in the face, it represents .0000151% of the CA. population. Sad to be sure, but worth a front page location with a screaming headline that blares “…state deaths near 600”? NO! Just more “SCARE YA NEWS”!
The “media” needs to make every attempt to tell the complete story rather than EXAGERATING insignificant numbers. And more importantly, editors at the DR need to do a better job of bringing the COMPLETE story to readers.
