In 1492, Apparently Nothing Happened

There has existed a movement for some time to remove all references to Christopher Columbus, including his statues and the designation of today as Columbus Day, a holiday for federal employees and financial institutions. The snowflakes want to change the name to “Indigenous Peoples Day,” just as they want to refer to Christmas as “winter holiday.”

President Trump Issues “Columbus Day Proclamation” without Obama’s Hand-wringing Apologies
How refeshing is it to have a President who actually works to preserve and honor our History as Americans? Barack Obama worked his entire eight years to denigrate and undermine our common culture and History as Americans. Not Trump. Every Conservative – every American – should support Donald Trump in his desire to preserve our History. Our history and tradition of observing Columbus Day is a good example

The History Behind the Movement to Replace Columbus Day With Indigenous Peoples’ Day
While the Federal Government will close on Oct. 9 for the 80th commemoration of Columbus Day, which was made official by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1937, some U. S. cities will mark the day in a different way, choosing rather to focus on the original inhabitants of the land to which Christopher Columbus sailed.

Italian-Americans fight against movement to abolish Columbus Day
But the gesture to recognize indigenous people rather than the man who opened the Americas to European domination also has prompted howls of outrage from some Italian-Americans, who say eliminating their festival of ethnic pride is culturally insensitive, too.

Columbus, the West, and the Myth of the Noble Savage
For starters, those who were long recognized as American Indians constituted anything but a monolith but, rather, many tribes or nations.
Secondly, American Indians comprised numerous tribes or nations that were continuously at war with one another.
Thirdly, these wars were distinctively bloody and savage.
The Myth of the Noble Savage, a uniquely European fiction that Columbus himself initially endorsed, has long exposed as just that by anthropological and archaeological research.

Gunman with Automatic Weapon Opens Fire on Concert Goers at Vegas Route 91 Harvest Music Festival – At Least 20 Dead and 100 Injured
The sold out event with many of the biggest names in country music was in progress when shots were fired. Videos of the event show the concert in progress and then suddenly multiple gun shots from an automatic weapon being fired.

The suspect shooter is dead but his companion Marilou Danley is still at large, according to Joseph Lombardo, the sheriff of the Las Vegas Metropolitan police department.

First Monday in October: New Supreme Court term begins
The Supreme Court is starting its new year, with Justice Neil Gorsuch on board for his first full term.
The nine justices are taking up several high-profile, difficult cases. This follows a term in which they were mostly shorthanded after Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, and the justices avoided controversial issues.

The Left Hates You. Act Accordingly
 Leftists don’t merely disagree with you. They don’t merely feel you are misguided. They don’t think you are merely wrong. They hate you. They want you enslaved and obedient, if not dead. Once you get that, everything that is happening now will make sense. And you will understand what you need to be ready to do.

How the Democrats Set Up Puerto Rico for Disaster
What New Orleans, Houston and Puerto Rico have in common.
We’ve seen this show before.
When there’s a national disaster, neighborhoods have been reduced to rubble, shelters are filled with crying families, and a Republican is in the White House, the Democrats jump into action.
Not to help, but to make political capital from a disaster that they helped cause.
After Hurricane Katrina, the media shrieked that survivors inside the New Orleans Superdome were murdering each other. But there actually wasn’t a single murder in the Superdome. And no, NBC’s Brian Williams never saw any corpses floating past the Ritz-Carlton. The media exaggerated and lied.

Carr: Left cries 1st Amendment only when convenient
Specifically, George Soros et al. care about those useful idiots in shoulder pads whom they want to use in their unending attempts to overturn the results of the 2016 presidential election.
What about the Christian bakers in Oregon who were sued out of business for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding? Or the clerk in Kentucky (a Democrat by the way) who refused to issue a marriage license to a gay couple? Don’t they have the same First Amendment rights as the Beautiful People?

Menendez is facing charges that he sold his US Senate office to a Palm Beach, Fla., eye doctor, his co-defendant Salomon Melgen, for bribes in the form of private jets stocked with Menendez’s favorite beverages, a private villa at one of the lushest resorts in the Caribbean, and a Paris hotel suite for which Melgen spent 650,000 American Express points.

Kasich hints at leaving GOP if it’s not ‘fixed’
“If the party can’t be fixed, Jake, then I’m not going to be able to support the party. Period. That’s the end of it.” Kasich said in an interview with anchor Jake Tapper.
Asked what that meant for his future in the GOP, Kasich said he was committed to the party and intended to win it over from the surging nationalist wing.
“I want this party to be straightened out,” Kasich said.

Local high school football players kicked off team after protest during anthem
Two Victory & Praise Christian Academy football players were kicked off the team for protesting during the national anthem at a game Friday night.
Cedric Ingram-Lewis raised his fist while cousin Larry McCullough knelt during the anthem ahead of the team’s game against Providence Classical.
After the anthem ended, head coach Ronnie Mitchem instructed them to take off their uniforms and kicked them off the team. Mitchem is a former Marine and pastor who started the church-based football program in Crosby six years ago.

Thursday Tidbits

Just got into a battle of wits with a guy on a Chicago Bears fanblog, of all things. It wasn’t a fair fight. He went off on a rant about teams “whiteballing” that racist punk Colin Kaepernick just because he wouldn’t stand for that “raggedy-ass flag.” That hit a sore spot with your intrepid reporter. I told him better men than him have died for his right to spread his racist horseshit, usually using all caps for emphasis. It’s been bad enough being a Bears fan the past few years, but some people just can’t help but inject their grievances into any conversation.

[CtH: I am so grateful that all three of my daughters married camo!]

North Korean Defector Describes In Detail Kim Jong Un’s Extremely Brutal Executions

THIS IS WHAT WE’RE DEALING WITH. STILL THINK NEGOTIATING WILL WORK?
“The musicians were brought out, tied up, hooded and apparently gagged, so they could not make a noise, not beg for mercy or even scream,” Hee Yeon explained. “They were lashed to the end of anti-aircraft guns.”

“A gun was fired, the noise was deafening, absolutely terrifying and the guns were fired one after the other,” she said. “The musicians just disappeared each time the guns were fired into them. Their bodies were blown to bits, totally destroyed, blood and bits flying everywhere.”

Hee Yeon revealed that Kim’s henchman plucked North Korean schoolgirls from their homes to work as sex slaves.

“Officials came to our schools and picked out teenage girls to work at one of his ‘hundreds’ of homes around Pyongyang,” Hee Yeon said. “They take the prettiest and ensure they have straight, good legs.”

“They have to sleep with him and they cannot make a mistake or object because they could very easily simply disappear,” she explained to reporters, citing reports from one of her friends.

Democrats caught inciting anti-police riots in St. Louis

The St. Louis Young Democrats are working hand-in-hand with Black Lives Matter to organize protests in the city, now entering their sixth night, and the mayor says she is “listening.”

The Young Democrats tweeted Wednesday at about 12:20 p.m. that the next “protest” in response to the not-guilty verdict in the Jason Stockley trial was planned for Wednesday evening, instructing rioters where to show up and at what time, hashtagging #Black Lives Matter on the tweet.http://www.wnd.com/2017/09/democrats-caught-inciting-anti-police-riots-in-st-louis/#j5vyvPc6fRkctc1j.99Trump Assures GOP Repeal Covers What Dems Want

Leftists Get Kids Cancer Fundraiser Cancelled Because It was At Trump Golf Course

The “Tri at the Trump” triathlon to raise money for kids with cancer was cancelled this week.

Leftists complained about the name.  Even after the organizers changed the name to “Tri for Good” the bitter leftists were still upset so the organizers cancelled the event.
KIDS WITH CANCER CAN’T STOP THE HATERS FROM HATING

But this year, the Tri at the Trump organizers say potential participants were triggered by the Trump name, and, over the summer, the group received several aggressive complaints about both the event, and the Trump National Golf Course.

SEVERAL COMPLAINTS?? THAT’S ALL IT TAKES TO DENY RAISING MONEY FOR KIDS WITH CANCER?

Score Another for Social Justice

When I was a kid in school, my nickname was ‘Pete’, short for my last name. After a few years of collecting toy cap pistols I decided to become a vintage toy dealer and Pistol Pete seemed a catchy name that hundreds of people came to know me by. It’s what people here know me as, and when I registered on Facebook I used Pistolpete as my first name since there are a lot of people with the same real name as mine.

When I tried to access my FB page yesterday they made me sign in. When I did, they wanted to change my name to just ‘Pete.’ When I declined, they demanded I send a driver’s license or document stating what my everyday name was. My guess is that some SJW clown, sitting in his mom’s basement, trolls the internet just looking for something to be offended by. My suspicion is they didn’t like the fact that ‘pistol’ was part of my name. Almost every toy show I ever had a table at, some PC mom would cuss me out for selling such awful toys. When we grew up every boy had lots of guns, because there were westerns on TV every night.

I joined a wonderful page on Facebook last week that concentrated on the vintage toys baby boomers grew up loving. It was great fun. Then, as is the norm, some slimeballs who get paid to troll social networks spam unrelated to toys started popping up. The moderator who started those pages decided every post of old toys and games had to be approved by a ‘moderator,’ however many there were. Now most of my posts go into moderation are never posted. I posted a question about getting an explanation of why they were unacceptable and apparently somebody was offended by my asking.

The trouble is I’m old, never had much filter on my mouth anyway, and being in poor health I figure I don’t have much longer on this earth, so why suffer such fools lightly? I refuse to change just to please people who will never be satisfied, so if that means I have to make some sacrifices, so be it.

I’m not in a very good mood, so the language may get a little salty. I beg your forbearance in advance.

Latest Lunatic Claim: Pumpkin Spice Lattes Fund Trump White Supremacy

That’s right folks. Did you know that every time you buy a delicious, 1000+ calorie pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks, you become an unwitting pawn in the white patriarchy? Well, a random feminist group says so, so it must be true. The Examiner reports:

“Pumpkin spice just doesn’t taste as good when you add a shot of racism,” a feminist leader explained as the fall flavor began to pop up in coffee shops around the country. This is a shockingly weird claim, but it shouldn’t be surprising.

Angry SJWs Take Over Western Civ Class Because Course is ‘Eurocentric’

Antifa Professor Tells Tucker Carlson Antifa Has a Right to Beat Opponents

Antifa activist Mike Isaacson a college professor went on with Tucker Carlson on Thursday. Isaacson argued that Antifa terrorists have a right to beat people they disagree with. Mike Isaacson is a professor at John Jay College of criminal justice.

Professor placed on administrative leave for tweeting he’s proud to teach ‘future dead cops’

The tweet caught the attention of police union officials after the 29-year-old anti-fascist leader appeared on Fox News Thursday night. Three union bosses and Police Commissioner James O’Neill slammed Isaacson’s tweet. After he was placed on leave, Isaacson was more contrite. Then he tried to cover himself in the First Amendment.
“So much for free speech, I guess.”

[CtH: Oh gosh. I guess we COULD say that about the people he says should be BEATEN for exercising THEIR First Amendment rights.]
Isaacson has gained increasing prominence as a leader of the Antifa movement, which advocates for the use of violence to prevent white supremacists from assembling in public.

PROTESTERS Shut Down Major Intersection – Move to Block Interstate After St. Louis Police Officer Found Not Guilty in Shooting Black Suspect

I guess when it comes home it takes on a whole new meaning. I’m too old to apologize for who and what I am. I’ve never changed and don’t plan on it anytime soon. It is what it is.

Offbeat News

First I’d like to offer my sincerest prayers for the safety of the founder of this blog (I think), Mafia Rose. She lives in Florida, which is in the cross hairs of not one but two devastating storms, Irma and Jose. Western Mexico suffered an 8.1 earthquake overnight. Fires still rage in the Pacific Northwest. Auntie Lib lives in Montana and I’m including her in my prayers. Lefties scream about climate change. I think it’s more like a warning from Almighty God. It’s a warning that He alone is in control.

Tens of thousands of witches around the world join forces every month to cast a ‘binding’ spell on Donald Trump and ‘protect’ us from his actions.  Hollywood witch Vicky Adams says she has been inundated with people wanting to learn the spell and buy ingredients.  Vicky, who runs a renowned occult store in tinseltown, says the spell aims to stop the US President from reaping “harm and destruction” across the globe.

[CtH: As Christians, we have authority over demons. If you do not already pray often for binding of evil spirits, I encourage you to begin doing so.  Also, add President Trump to your daily prayers. Jesus defeated Satan, but we must be willing to use the weapons He provides us (like prayer and fasting) and not be like the troops Obama ordered to stand down when Benghazi was under attack.]

Nolte: Civil Rights Lawsuit Claims Gifted Black Girl Bullied by Black Students for ‘Acting White’

The motivation all appears to be racial. On top of the physical bullying, the lawsuit says the “verbal bullying and harassment began almost immediately.” Taunts included “Oreo,” “white girl,” “wannabe white girl,” and “black white bitch.” The lawsuit adds that she was “generally maligned” for “acting white.”

The suit is specifically directed at Richland School District 1 over the school’s apparent failure to do anything to the protect the girl, despite repeated complaints from her parents. The lawsuit also claims to have witnesses and/or video from surveillance cameras of a number of the incidents.

Judge to wiseguy: You should’ve thought before joining the mob
A ​no-nonsense ​Manhattan federal court judge blasted an aged wiseguy Thursday before sentencing him to seven years in prison — saying he should have thought beforehand about joining the mob if he didn’t want to die behind bars.

“There’s a long history of capos who have died in prison,” Judge Richard Sullivan coldly told 73-year-old Pasquale “Patsy” Parrello before handing down the sentence — which brought audible gasps of disbelief from the packed courtroom.

Must-Miss Television

It is doubtful that anyone who visits here would be a fan of CNN. It takes an absence of intelligence, a willingness to be knowingly lied to, and the gag reflex of a billy goat to engage in such self-inflicted torture. Nonetheless, the professional haters never rest.

Of Course: CNN to Air New Reagan-Bashing Film on Labor Day

On Labor Day, CNN will air The Reagan Show, a new film bashing the 40th president. In case you thought it would be anything other than hostile, the ads make the goal clear. A clip of Reagan saying, “Together we will make America great again,” is paired with a blurb from the website Screen Daily: “An elaborately constructed parable for the Trump era.”
National Review exposed just how nasty the documentary is:
The continuing popularity of President Reagan is a source of profound irritation and unease to liberals. To assuage their pain, they have gone back to their initial rationalization for how Reagan became so beloved: He cheated. Though a lousy actor, he nonetheless fooled the common man with his mesmeric performing skills. It’s the old false-consciousness story: If we liked the man, trickery must have been involved.

MTP Panelist Claims DACA Opposition by Trump Base Driven by Race
DIDN’T SEE THAT ONE COMING, RIGHT?
According to the professor, Trump was only playing to his base who only cared about DACA because they were white. “We can think about the policy issues but there is this kind of cultural undertow,” he asserted.
“This is really red meat to his base that it’s really speaking to a kind of deep seated cultural anxiety about the changing nature of the country,” he claimed. “That this immigration issue is not about securing the border and it’s not about jobs, it’s not about fixing a bad immigration policy.”

The #FakeNews liberal media is sure gonna miss John McCain.
As hard as others try, there’s really just no one to take his place trashing Republicans with such venom. Although, Ben Sasse, Jeff Flake, and Lindsey Graham are working to change that.

Just a couple things that go to extremes.

RIDICULOUS:

The Orpheum Theater in Memphis cancelled the annual showing of “Gone With the Wind” after alt-left complaints of racism.
The historic Memphis theater has shown the movie for decades.

YOU THOUGHT THEY’D STOP AT STATUES?

THE SUBLIME:
Renowned Artist Releases Powerful Painting of Trump and the People Who Elected Him: ‘You Are Not Forgotten’
Famed American artist Jon McNaughton has released a stirring new painting of President Donald Trump, standing in front of the White House, along with the “forgotten men and women,” he says, who elected the nation’s 45th president.

“When I decided to paint this picture, I wondered if this was taking it too far. But sometimes you have to speak forcefully like the brush strokes of my painting.”

Of the snake at Trump’s feet, McNaughton explains:

“I want a president that will crush the enemies of liberty, justice, and American prosperity. They may have the power to bruise his heel, but he will have the power to crush their head.”

McNaughton said those who voted for Trump knew exactly what they were getting, which is why they voted for him in the first place:
