Tucker Battles Writer Who Considers ´Star-
Spangled Banner´ a ´Neo-Confederate Symbol´

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/14/2017 6:06:59 AM

Tucker Carlson debated a writer from Alternet DC who said the "Star-Spangled Banner´s" designation as our national anthem has its roots in neo-Confederate circles. One day before the 203rd anniversary of Francis Scott Key penning the song while onboard a ship during the Battle of Baltimore, Key´s monument in the Charm City was defaced with the term "racist anthem." Jefferson Morley told Carlson that for nearly a decade in the 1920s, neo-Confederate groups petitioned - ultimately successfully - to have Key´s tune made our official anthem. That goal finally came to pass in 1931. Carlson said the anthem itself is

Let´s hope they openly start going after their real target - not Confederate statues, not monuments named for "slaveholders", not songs - their real target is The Constitution of the United States of America. That´s what they want destroyed, and they won´t stop until they get their way, or until they themselves are stopped.

Went to Yale. Does Morley even realize that his vaunted elitist university, of which I´m sure he´s very proud, was founded by and named for a slave trader? He should be demanding that his alma mater be torn down and turned into low income housing.

I like Carlson but I cannot watch his show because he keeps hosting these leftwing liars and giving them a forum to spout their vicious, hateful lies, bigotry and racism. It doesn´t do the cause of Freedom any good to give them air time, it accomplishes nothing, you cannot reason with, debate, or do business with liberals in any way. I got sick of O´Reilly for the same and other reasons. I want liberal-free programming!

#1, after all the Constitution did permit slavery.
#7, we may only do so if our brave leaders so have the guts and the intelligence to, if not lead, at least designate and permit.
#9, I agree. Where is our propaganda arm putting forth the truth and targeting these hypocrites?
#11, these are the people that need to be painted. Not only did he go and thus feed the racist university but there is no doubt that he continues to do so. just as my lessors colleges and universities solicit me for donations, Yale expects it.
Tucker´s airing of these low lives is important. Nothing is a better source of waking the American people to the domestic threat facing our country than hearing them spew their hate. Tucker may be the only source for this information for many Americans.
Great posts all.

The pro-immigration lawyers are apoplectic, which is always a sign for celebration. As in other Trump achievements during his first year, the President is accomplishing a cutback on foreign tech workers displacing Americans entirely on his own. The Republican Congress remains stubbornly opposed to the immigration restrictions Republican voters want.The main tool at President Trump’s disposal is the appointment of a new agency head, in this case Francis Cissna as director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), who came on board in October, followed in swift order by the novel idea of actually following the law and scrutinizing

Trump wants to end welfare

Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article

WASHINGTON— Overhauling welfare was one of the defining goals of Bill Clinton’s presidency, starting with a campaign promise to “end welfare as we know it,” continuing with a bitter policy fight and producing change that remains hotly debated 20 years later.Now, President Donald Trump wants to put his stamp on the welfare system, apparently in favor of a more restrictive policy. He says “people are taking advantage of the system.”Trump, who has been signaling interest in the issue for some time, said this past week that he wants to tackle the issue after the tax overhaul he is seeking by

President Donald Trump took time to video chat with some troops on Thanksgiving, but an MSNBC panel wasn’t satisfied with the president’s gesture of goodwill. WATCH:The panel admitted up front that it was very kind of the president to call the troops during a holiday, but they spent the rest of the time bashing everything about the call.“One, it’s nice for the president to do that,” Robert Traynham, an MSNBC analyst, said with a sigh. “Maybe I’m reading too far into this, but it didn’t seem very authentic.

Former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon believes that a big part of his vision for economic nationalism is extending opportunities to black and Hispanic workers. “The whole purpose of this economic nationalism and populism is to give voice to the voiceless. The deplorables are also the black and Hispanic working class,” he said in a video conversation with author Keith Koffler about his new biography of Bannon.

Norman Rockwell’s “Thanksgiving Picture” is one of the most iconic images ever created of American life.First published in the March 6, 1943 weekly edition of The Saturday Evening Post, Rockwell worried that the presentation of such a large turkey at the center of the bountiful and happy feast back home might cause unhappiness among the American troops fighting in Europe, North Africa, and the Pacific at a time when the tide of the war had not yet turned. It was still more than a year before the successful D-Day invasion on the beaches of Normandy June 6, 1944.Among the troops,

In October 2016, a Texas woman sent packages laden with explosives to Governor Greg Abbott, President Barack Obama and Commissioner of the Social Security Administration Carolyn Colvin. The only reason Abbott was not either severely burned or killed was that he did not open the package as designed.According to court documents, Julia Poff, 46, was reportedly angry at Abbott because she had not received support from her ex-husband. The package to Obama was detected in screening and rendered safe. The package to Colvin was reportedly motivated by the fact that Poff had applied for Social Security benefits and been denied.Poff

The anti-Trump "Resistance" may still be active in some communities, but it´s definitely not cutting any checks to the Democratic Party.According to fundraising numbers released on Tuesday, the Democratic Party — and it´s leader, Tom Perez — managed to raise only $3.9 million in October, one-third of the $9.2 million raised by the Republican National Committee. That´s the worst October the DNC has had in more than 15 years. October took the Republican Party out of debt; it´s now raised $113.2 million for the year, with around $40 million ready in the bank for the 2018 mid-term elections. Democrats, meanwhile, have

A Washington Post columnist said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders humiliates the media on a daily basis. In a column published Tuesday, opinion writer Kathleen Parker referenced Sanders asking reporters earlier this week to say what they were thankful for before asking a question. "Yet again, she controlled the crowd, though this time by candy-coating her usual condescension with faux fellowship," Parker wrote. "I´m thankful I wasn´t in the room." She wrote that her first impulse when someone asks her to share is to "not-share."

He had previously been seen wearing it on his right foot after he suffered a minor tear in his right Achilles tendon. McCain took notice of the fallout, and on Thursday took to Twitter to clarify.

He wrote that he “feels terribly that I’ve made some women feel badly.” He called himself “a warm person” who likes to hug people when they’re being photographed with him, but clearly, his embrace “crossed a line for some women.” Although his statement did not directly address the question of whether he might resign, he vowed

Ex-Gadsden cop Faye Gray told MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell that rumors of Moore’s liking young girls were heard on a daily basis and she was informed that he had been banned from Gadsden Mall because he allegedly targeted young female employees. “We were also told to watch him at the ballgames and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders,” Faye said.

Alabama has its back up, or at least its Republicans and conservatives do, and it’s understandable.

The ever-widening use of artificial lights is making the nighttime Earth glow increasingly brighter, with the amount of global light growing about 2 percent each year. That worries advocates for the protection of dark skies, who say that artificial night glow can affect wildlife like migrating birds and keeps people from connecting to the stars. What´s more, they say, all that wasted light sent out into space is effectively wasted money.

True to the theme that he’s been nationally talking about – or rather, taking a knee for – since last summer, former 49er Colin Kaepernick attended an “Unthanksgiving Day” celebration on Alcatraz Island. The Indigenous Peoples Sunrise Ceremony, held annually on Thanksgiving since 1975, commemorates the survival of Native American peoples following the settlement of Europeans in the Western Hemisphere. Kaepernick began making headlines in August when a photographer spotting him sitting during the national anthem. He told reporters that he sat, or took a knee, because he was fighting to combat the oppression of people of color and ongoing issues
