      The generation of US Army officers who fought together in Mexico, then led opposing armies in the Civil War, make up one of the most important set of actors in the biggest conflict ever fought within our country, redefining military history and tactics for every generation of officers since.

      After the war, the reuniting of the military around our one flag has been essential, and we remember excellence and flaws in military leadership, regardless of sides and politics. Fort names honor that excellence, and draw the descendants of those who fought that war to defend the one flag in our one military.

      The NYT with its bogus 1619 fake history, is simply selling more of the same by elevating white racism and privilege as the primary explanation for everything that happened in Western Civilization and the rise of the English speaking peoples. Bogus history in service to Cultural Marxism, the relentless, systematic undermining of every cultural institution that has made up our nation in the past, in order to “completely transform” our government along their “progressive Socialist and globalist,” i.e. Marxist lines, where everyone with any authority must preoccupy themselves with the demands and dictates of their superiors, and owe no accountability at all to those over whom they themselves hold authority, so are blind and deaf to their needs and concerns.

      Vote for me or “you ain’t black.” Accept my new made up history or you’re a racist. March to our beat or you ain’t one of the elite. Give up your guns or our children will be slaughtered. Help us complete the takeover of one world government or your babies will suffer Kawasaki Syndrome, millions will die now, or later when global warming makes it impossible to feed our children.

    FTA: A watchdog group is asking the U.S. Education Department to investigate the University of Pennsylvania and its Biden Center, a diplomacy and global engagement initiative named after the Democratic presidential candidate, for accepting millions of dollars in anonymous funds from Chinese donors.

    The complaint, filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, says that over the past three years, the university has accepted around $22 million in anonymous funding from Chinese sources. That’s out of a total of more than $70 million from Chinese donors during that time, the NLPC said.

      On January 23, 2018, CFR hosted former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden AND MICHAEL CARPENTER, senior director of the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. Among other topics, the two discussed U.S.-Russia relations, cybersecurity, and their Foreign Affairs article, “How to Stand Up to the Kremlin: Defending Democracy Against Its Enemies.” CFR President Richard N. Haass presided.

      In a video of the event, Biden reflects on the Obama administration’s response to Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Biden also explains how he went to the Ukrainian President Porosheko & demanded that Ukraine Attorney Viktor Shokin. In the video Biden brags he will withhold $1 Billion in Foreign aid if that doesn’t happen.

      Michael Carpenter is the senior director of the Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement at the University of Pennsylvania. He is a former deputy assistant secretary of defense in the Pentagon for Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia and has served as foreign policy advisor to the Vice President of the United States and as Director for Russia for the National Security Council. Carpenter has also served abroad in the U.S. Embassies in Poland, Slovenia, and Barbados. He holds a master’s and a PhD in political science from the University of California at Berkeley and a bachelor’s degree in international relations from Stanford University. He has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, ABC News, Bloomberg, BBC, and other outlets, and his work has been published in Foreign Policy, Foreign Affairs, The Hill, Defense One, and other media outlets. Carpenter is a nonresident SENIOR FELLOW with the Atlantic Council’s Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center.

      Info from the Atlantic Council website: The Atlantic Council’s Dinu Patriciu Eurasia Center combines in-depth understanding of Eurasia’s history with expertise on politics, economics, and energy, to provide distinctive research and advice to governments and businesses worldwide. It seeks to promote an agenda of regional cooperation and integration based on shared values and common interest in a free, prosperous, and peaceful future.

      Dinu Patriciu happens to have been the richest man in Romania.

      The Penn Biden Center officially opened our doors on February 8, 2018, with an event featuring the President of the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Amy Gutmann, and a discussion on global affairs between former Vice President Joe Biden and distinguished journalist and Penn alumna, Andrea Mitchell. The center welcomed guests from Penn and across the worlds of government and foreign policy, including former Secretary of State John Kerry, former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, and current and former members of the U.S. Congress.

    It’s not much of a stretch to see how the Flynn phone calls of 12/29/16 got from the GCHQ database to the NSA Database. And, why the director of the GCHQ Database retired on 1/23/2017

    High likely hood that Comey got the Flynn phone calls from the NSA Database based on Obama’s updated executive order 12333.

    It seems pretty clear now, Obama under his own order, executive order 12333, says to Clapper (DNI) – go get Flynn’s phone calls of 12/29/16. Clapper (DNI) in turn tells Comey (FBI) to get them.

    Is the Intelligence Community Trying to Subvert Our National Security?
    By Harry G. Hutchison

    Extract from full article
    The changes initiated by the Obama Administration in its waning days empowered far more agents and officials to search through raw intelligence data. As a direct consequence of the change in policy, it appears that the prospect of intel leaks grew exponentially. Attorney General Loretta Lynch signed the new rules permitting the NSA to disseminate raw signals intelligence information on January 3, 2017 after Director of National Intelligence James Clapper signed them on December 15, 2016.

    Prior to these changes, the NSA filtered information before sharing intercepted communications with another agency such as the CIA or the intelligence branches of the FBI. The NSA only passed on information deemed pertinent before the new order screening out the identities of innocent people and irrelevant personal information. Now intelligence agencies can search directly through raw repositories of communications intercepted by the NSA and then apply such rules as required for minimizing privacy intrusions.

    Under the new rules, agencies and individuals can ask the NSA for access to specific surveillance feeds premised on the claim that they contain relevant information that is useful to a particular mission. Then the NSA has the discretion to grant such requests if it deems the request reasonable. Properly understood, the contents of the conversations engaged in by members of the Trump Administration and by President Trump himself are now under an increasing risk that they will be exposed to the public for purposes of embarrassing the Trump Administration and in order to impede the effectiveness of his policies.

      That’s a nice thought Ausonius, but I doubt a GOP convention would “force” any governor to open their state. I’d say reward the state that’s been the best at freedom. For example, South Dakota has never closed down, Texas has stood up for the citizens, and there are other good ones, too. Reward a good one and tell people that Republicans will give their business to the states that want to succeed.

    • I live in NC and I could never understand why the GOP selected Charlotte for their convention. This is not a red state and the City Council in Charlotte is extreme left and did not want it there. The governor is keeping us in lockdown for this reason; pure politics. Who ever heard of a 4 week phase two? He is purposely doing this to block the Republican convention. I think they should move it to South Carolina or Florida, probably Florida is the best equipped.

      As soon as GOP moves convention, then I am sure NC will be wide open. I do feel that POTUS has to take some responsibililty for this. His administration gives out mixed messages….he wants to open but that woman Birx was on tv again this weekend fear mongering and his CDC is just as bad. The NC governor even retorted with well he is just following POTUS’ CDC guidelines.

      It’s just one thing after another here. I finally was able to get a haircut, although I had to hold a bandana over my nose and mouth, ridiculous, but salon has no choice…they were all so happy to be back to work and making money. So, now the Dem controlled County Commissioners had passed a rule or whatever saying we must wear masks indoors all commercial facilities.

      My town has withdrawn consent, but unfortunately, most of the shopping is in Asheville (two grocery stores I use) and the entire mall area is in Asheville. So I have been checking out nearby counties and found Henderson county has a couple of the stores I shop in and it is only about 30 minutes away. Also Greenville SC which is 60 minutes away has more.

      I feel my only choices are to boycott Asheville or claim a health issue. I am thinking of claiming a health issue (don’t have to tell them what it is) because imo the masks are a danger to my health (lol). But I really would like to not spend any money in Asheville…sort of a huge inconvenience, but I am not wearing a mask.

    First of all, I am against mail-in ballots, except applied-for absentee. I favor one-day voting with Voter ID and a paper copy. Just like we have it here in SC. Double the number of voting locations and have one GOP and one DEM judge at each.

    That said, we might as well surrender to this Vote by Mail thing, because it is coming. It would be better for the GOP to take the lead on it and devise the most fool-proof method possible. In the end, we could possibly come up with something better than what exists in most states today. Surrender and Shape.

                It does not have to be nationwide. Wherever it is, it should have to meet certain spec for the votes to count in a federal election. For instance, localities should be required to keep their voter rolls cleaned. Any precinct casting more votes than registered in that precinct will have their votes tossed out. Anyone who is solicited to put their ballot in the possession of someone else, must report and will receive cash reward upon testimony and conviction of solicitor.

                This is some quick thinking on the matter. I know there are many great ideas to ensure fair voting by mail. Honestly, when SC judge says absentee ballots do not have to be witnessed (as happened this week), you better quit fighting about IF Mail-In, and started defining HOW mail-in.

                And if Trump cannot present enough evidence of voter fraud to persuade voters to support restrictive safeguards, then that is on him. The 2020 election has been coming for coming for three.5 years. Even without pandemic, fraud was going to happen.

                I have been seriously worried about Dem cheating in elections for ten years or more. Elections and government transparency should have been high and visible priorities for this administration for years.

                The re-election of Donald Trump is so crucial, it makes me sick to think voting security has not been addressed.

    This.. is what it has been all about.. like the United States were in the 20th Century.. China was picked to be the world leader in the 21st Century.. the manufacturers even moved all their stuff over there..

    The problem with their pick is that it is artificial.. it is not organic.. it is.. Fake.. like their News.. just a plastic manufactured century..

    you know.. like that tool or toy.. that appliance.. that democrat.. that worked only a few times..

    so the manufacturers tried to frame an American President.. and that didn’t work either..

    then they decided to just slaughter the people..

    leftists.. same as it ever was..

    they want to stop President Trump.. from Making America Great Again..

    that’s what this pandemic is all about..

    there is to be no reconciliation..

    American politicians were the first to pick sides.. then voters picked sides..

    and now U.S. Nation States have picked sides..

    we are almost there..

    Fourth Turning..

    The math doesn’t add up…
    AP article states that there are almost 345,000 total covid deaths worldwide. Almost 100,000 US deaths. Over 169,000 European deaths. That leaves only 76,000 deaths for the entire rest of the world.

    How is it that Ground Zero China had far less deaths than anyone else?
    How is it that the rest of the world outside of US and Europe had far, far less deaths?
    Why is it that anywhere from 50% to 85% of US deaths were in nursing homes?

    But wait, the MSM says deaths are under reported … so, um, why is it that when US States get caught lying, it’s always been over reporting by about 25%? Every single one that got caught. Never under reported, always over reported. And it’s the extreme cases that get them caught. Guy gets shot 25 times (I’m exaggerating the number), dies, and State says it’s a covid death. Guy drinks until his BAC is 0.55 (not exaggerating) where 0.3 is lethal and State says it’s a covid death. No one is looking at the numbers until the extremes pop up.

    I am discouraged to see PDJT so panic stricken over the pattern of results in mostly fraudulent polls being run strictly as campaign fodder for the Demcommies. He is believing the numbers and has actually become afraid that the Country will turn to a smooth talking Communist over him. This, in my opinion, has reduced PDJT to several recent unforced errors in his daily Tweeting forays.

    PDJT needs to think about his Tweets before he pushes them out and he needs to do more fact finding on candidates from his Party before making endorsements. He has never been a clever politician and that is what I have always liked about him. Clever politicians tend to always avoid decision making while acting like they are concerned about the issues that require them. I hate clever politicians. One way to help PDJT is to just go back to work, now. If the economy is back on its feet by October, Trump will win in a landslide.

      The Mass Mail in ballots are just reams of ballots sent out to everyone who has ever voted in that district and then some, including people who have long since moved, died, and even a lot of duplicate ballots are being seen.

      You don’t see a lot of room for fraud with ballots in every post? Maybe some of them don’t get to their intended recipient. In CA people are seeing Dems get more than one ballot each. Obviously the illegal aliens are being sent ballots. People who don’t exist are being sent ballots.

    Well, as I said in my confirmation hearing, one of the reasons I came back is because I was concerned that people were feeling there were two standards of justice in this country. And that the political and that the justice, or the law enforcement process was being used to play political games. And I wanted to make sure that we restore confidence in the system. There’s only one standard of justice.

    Well, I think they are bigger because I hope that it sends the message that there is one standard of justice in this country. And that’s the way it will be.

    As a general rule, when the New York Times, the Washington Post, National Public Radio, Public Broadcasting Service, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN begin to parrot a narrative, the truth often is found in simply believing just the opposite.

    Put another way, the media’s “truth” is a good guide to what is abjectly false. Perhaps we can call the lesson of this valuable service, the media’s inadvertent ability to convey truth by disguising it with transparent bias and falsehood, the “Doctrine of Media Untruth.”

    Take the strange case of the respective records of liberal New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Florida counterpart Ron DeSantis. Both states have roughly equal populations, with Florida slightly larger by about 2 million. Both have populations that travel daily back and forth between their respective major cities. Both are major international tourist and travel hubs. Both have widely diverse populations.

      First question……If true isn’t that government property?

      2nd Question……If Question 1 is true then what can PT or Barr do to recover this property?

      Then again, I guess all that Barr needs to do is ask his FBI where the 47 Hammer Hard Drives that Montgomery gave them as EVIDENCE back in 2015 are.

      Surely Montgomery has a backup set right??

      This IMO would may be the single best assignment/mission for Grenell,

      1) Expose all correspondence on the Hammer Program from 2009 forward.
      2) Recover these Hammer Hard Drives of evidence from FIB Evidence room
      3) Expose who signed off on flipping it from a Foreign Intelligence tool to a Domestic Surveillance Tool?
      4) Expose who ran the Hammer Program when it began in Feb 2009?
      5) Depose Dennis Montgomery and expose his deposition to all Americans?
      6) Find and expose which Americans were targeted by the Hammer Program?
      7) Expose if any Judges and Congressional Leaders were surveilled and if data was captured?

      IMO, if PT asked Grenell to do just this, it could very well topple the DS once and for all as Americans, if all this was indeed true, would be shocked and horrified and demand justice.

      Remember Barr is on record as there is one system for all, so imagine if Grenell presents him with all this evidence?

      IMO there would be NO wiggle room.

    Michigan as you know is strict lockdown where Sweden stayed open.

    Sweden has 40% less total cases and 24% less deaths even though the population has been mingling out and about everyday

    The bigger point might just be, which one now has a higher % of their population with CV antibodies?

    My bet is Sweden.

        Which large city with convention/hotel capacity would have him??? San Antonio turned it down (chance to make something like 250 million). Dallas, Austin, & Houston would probably turn down also. Not sure Ft. Worth has the capacity. I don’t know….maybe those Dem mayors are in debt and would rethink the money infusion…..However, I imagine the NC governor/Charlotte mayor will “come to their senses”.

          The arena in Ft Worth is large enough. The Texas GOP convention is larger than the RNC’s national convention. Any venue that the Republican Party of Texas has used should do. Fort Worth is the least blue of any of our big Texas cities.

          The mayor strikes me as a possible closet Dimm, but she purports to be a Republican. If the RNC were to consider moving the convention to Fort Worth, Greg Abbott’s office or Dan Patrick’s would be in contact with her in a heartbeat to help bring the convention to fruition and without a big problem.

    Ideal weather conditions may have helped coronavirus thrive initially, study suggests
    By Mark Puleo, AccuWeather staff writer
    Published May. 19, 2020 3:48 PM

    “…The Chengdu researchers said the applications of the findings they came away with are incomplete, but the results suggest that numerous suitable weather factors may have laid an ideal foundation for the virus to take root and eventually spread throughout the world.

    Using data from the European Center for Long-Term Weather Forecast (ECMWF), they compared the weather conditions with the number of confirmed cases from each province in China in January and February. According to the findings, there are three critical meteorological conditions in which SARS-CoV-2 can most effectively spread.

    The first is temperature. The researchers said the analysis “showed that COVID-19 cases were concentrated in the provinces with temperatures in [the] range of 0–10 degrees Celsius,” or 32 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Increased humidity and UV light from the sun are the other two critical factors the researchers cited.

    The researchers reported that the strength of solar radiation also may have an effect on how the virus spreads. Places where solar radiation remained below a certain level saw more effective spread, according to their findings. Meanwhile, higher-elevation locations, which see stronger amounts of UV rays due to their altitude, along with places that have drier climates, and therefore fewer clouds in the sky to diminish solar radiation, saw less transmission.

    “The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau has a high altitude (approximately 4,000 m) and is subjected to strong solar radiation, resulting in a higher amount of UV-B radiation reaching the surface,” the researchers wrote about a vast area covering 965,000 square miles of southwest China. The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is about three miles above sea level and is nicknamed the “Roof of the World.”

    In the left (January) and right (February) columns, researchers tracked data for temperature (a and b), UV radiation (c and d) and humidity (e and f).

    It’s not just altitude that affects solar radiation. The number and thickness of clouds in the sky can also determine how much of the downward shortwave ultraviolet radiation — energy emitted by the sun — reaches the Earth’s surface.

    “The weather in the arid region of the Northwest is clear with fewer clouds, and the radiation received on the surface is higher than in other parts of China,” the researchers wrote in the study. “As a result, it may be difficult for COVID-19 to spread in the plateau or the arid area in the northwest due to high UV-B radiation.”

    The study’s results show a connection between areas that had lower numbers of cases that sit at higher altitudes and, therefore, received higher levels of UV-B radiation.

    In an email to AccuWeather, Xiaohang Wen, the lead author of the study, said their findings don’t only apply to China, but to the rest of the world as well…”

      Here is the deal, UV-B translates to D3 levels. More UV-B gives you more D3. Allot of seniors have low D3 levels. Get the picture.

      In listening to her podcast which includes unedited portions, her asides as to the process, etc. and posting it in the podcast format with behind the scenes information while having the interview aired on TV as well as made available online via youtube, I believe Ms. Attkisson is setting the pattern for how future real journalists will be working to make honest news available, warts and all. Part 2 is about 20 minutes in length.

      I think the DNC party & the FBI initiated the Russian Collusion Hoax immediately after Hillary signed her August 27, 2015 Contract to take over the DNC….

      Per Congressional transcripts:
      SEPTEMBER 2015 – FBI Agent Adrian Hawkins telephones the DNC, is routed through the help desk and connects with the Director of Internet Technology for the DNC, Mr. Yared Tamene Wolde Yohannes. Mr. Tamene is a CONTRACTOR. Mr. Tamene works for MIS Management Rajeev Chopra founded MIS Management in order to assist the two campaigns of President Obama. MIS Management is under contract to the DNC to provide IT services.

      Congress: Were you aware of any other interactions, even if you weren’t
      personally involved in them, between the FBI and the DNC relative to
      cybersecurity during your time there PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER 2015?

      Mr. Tamene NO, I was not aware of any.
      –August 30, 2017 Congressional transcripts

      It is an FBI agent who calls the DNC in September, October, November, December of 2015, it is that FBI agent who tells the DNC IT department in NOVEMBER 2015, that it’s Russians that might be hacking the computers….

      For months the FBI calls & each month asks the IT Director to investigate various claims that Russians might be in their system. The IT staff investigates every single request by the FBI and find Nothing…..IMO the DNC IT Department were being groomed by the FBI to accept the Russian narrative…

      Congress: Right. And, indeed, up to that point, you had not corroborated any
      of the activity that the FBI had …engaged with you?
      Mr. Tamene – That’s true. I want to also say that THE ACTORS THAT WE NOTICED, it turns out, on the 28th of April WERE DIFFERENT ACTORS THAN THE FBI HAD BEEN LOOKING AT. These Dukes and APT-29, THEY WERE DIFFERENT THAN THOSE.

      So the FBI was looking for “Those Russians” in the DNC computers for at least six months, before the ‘unusual activity’ on April 28, 2016. These perpetrators weren’t “those Russians”, it was “different actors”. But because the “different actors” created the unusual activity, it triggered the IT Dept to raise an alarm. Perkins Coie brings in their security contractor Crowdstrike. Crowdstrike is given a list from the FBI and using that list, Crowdstrike determines that those ain’t these and these ain’t those…and informs us that Russians hacked the DNC computer.

    I had no idea he informed counsel / FBI he was going to remove a Facebook account, and get a new phone number, etc., and this was part of his takedown?

    Two items I would like to highlight.

    #1. Slimeball DOJ Attorney Brandon Van Grack was part of the GP takedown! Same sleaze who helped frame Gen. Flynn!

    #2. End of July, 2019, George Papadalolous has publicly stated he’s going back to Greece to get the $10,000 in setup money – and he’s going to bring it back to the US. (He also believes it is marked.) THIS HAS GONE SILENT. Did Barr or Durham stop him, or ask him to remain silent?
