Restoring The Original Purpose Of Schools

The government school system is the number one enemy of our republic. Years ago, when I first made that declaration, people disagreed with much vigor. Some said that I was looney for saying that, considering enemies like China, Islamic terrorists, Russia, hordes of illegal border crossers, etc. Of course, those are all major enemies. But in my opinion, none of them compare with the great enemy from within, the government school system. Continue reading

John Quincy Adams signs the Tariff of Abominations

On March 19, 1828, John Quincy Adams signed legislation that would come to be known as the Tariff of Abominations. The law was one of the early dominoes that fell and eventually pushed our nation toward Civil War.

The legislation came at the end of Adams’s single term in office. He’d been elected in somewhat unusual circumstances. The Electoral College vote did not produce a majority winner; thus, the election was pushed into a secondary procedure known as the House contingent election. Adams was selected by congressmen! His opponent, Andrew Jackson, was livid. Continue reading

Teach Your Children

“I wrote ‘Teach Your Children’ because we have much to teach them. Conversely, I believe we as parents have much to learn from them as well. I think that Jeff Scher did a wonderful job of animating my lyrics and positioning the song in a contemporary setting.” ~ Graham Nash (2018)

I am sitting here watching this over and over and crying. I am 75 years old – this is my life. One good thing I did with my life was follow the advice in this song. Thank you for this. ~ Jim Edwards

Tutorial: Teach Your Children to Read Phonetically

As long as so many children are at home due to the Plan-demic of the Century – let us make it fun and easier for them… and who knows – you may just find that your child will have a  great time learning how to read, write and speak properly – ALL of which will make them better kids and adults as they grow up.

YUP – keep ’em out of these awful Indoctrination Centers. You will happy that you did – and someday – even they will understand – especially when they must interact with the children of Fred G. Sanford (DUMMIES!)  ~ Ed.

The Report of the Committee on Foreign Affairs of the President’s Message

Relates to the Affairs Between the The Confederate and United States

Wait, but doesn’t the righteous cause myth say the war was somehow “about slavery!” Doesn’t the righteous cause myth say the tariff had nothing to do with secession and war??? Doesn’t the righteous cause myth state that all this talk about tariff concerns were just a post war embellishment to cover up slavery as the cause of secession???

The Confederate Committee on Foreign Affairs regarding the cause of secession: “The tariff alone, would have been ample cause for a separation of the Southern from the Northern.” This speech was presented at Montgomery, Alabama on May 1, 1861. ~ Rod B. O’Barr

History Lesson on Slavery: Why There Can’t Be Slavery Reparations

When we think about racial inequality, do we blame everyone in the country, or do we research the truth?

The Democratic Party enjoys votes from the black community, the very people it tried to keep enslaved for most all of its entire history. Opposition to school choice by Democrats has kept blacks in failing schools.

Over the past few years Americans have been hearing about possibly having to pay for slavery reparations to the descendants of slaves that have long since passed. Recently to the tune of 6.2 quadrillion dollars. This article will show why said reparations will be widely voted against. Continue reading

Homeschooling for Beginners ~ and the time has come for YOU…

A superb and easy to understand program. We strongly urge you to open this video directly on You Tube and study all of the comments and the tremendous support toward this much needed program for our children… for YOUR children. ~ Ed.

Due to the current circumstances, we’ve received more questions about homeschooling than ever before. Some schools are pushing back start dates and parents that are now working remotely are starting to consider alternatives to traditional school. Maybe not forever, but perhaps long enough to take a few long RV trips and expose their kids to new places that will also enhance their overall education.

Historical Ignorance and Confederate Generals

The Confederacy has been the excuse for some of today’s rioting, property destruction and grossly uninformed statements. Among the latter is the testimony before the House Armed Services Committee by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley in favor of renaming Confederate-named military bases. He said: “The Confederacy, the American Civil War, was fought, and it was an act of rebellion. It was an act of treason, at the time, against the Union, against the Stars and Stripes, against the U.S. Constitution.”

There are a few facts about our founding that should be acknowledged. Let’s start at the beginning, namely the American War of Independence (1775-1783), a war between Great Britain and its 13 colonies, which declared independence in July 1776. The peace agreement that ended the war is known as the Treaty of Paris signed by Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, John Jay and Henry Laurens and by British Commissioner Richard Oswald, on Sept. 3, 1783. Article I of the Treaty held that “New Hampshire, Massachusetts Bay, Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, to be free sovereign and Independent States.” Continue reading

Here’s how much school closures will cost parents in lost wages, reduce GDP — and negatively impact the nation’s education system

The American public-school system is already largely segregated by race, class and outcomes, and expert say that trend is likely to get worse.

For America’s schoolchildren, their parents and their teachers, this fall will be unlike any other.

Over the past few weeks, prominent public-school systems all over the country have announced that they’ll be starting school remotely. Others have pressed forward with plans for in-person instruction amid pressure from the federal government to reopen.

It’s a weighty decision for officials with implications for students’ mental health, parents’ careers and public health and safety — particularly for teachers and others who work in schools. Continue reading

Disadvantage and high land prices almost always precedes collapse

If this economic climate feels familiar to you, that’s because we have been here before…

The examination the historical red flags that preceded crises dating back to the Roman Empire.

You’ve got to stand back and not bury your head in inconsequential detail if you want to understand history. Land and poverty are always key.

Pax Romana
The Roman Empire was destroyed by having spread its powerful and expensive military too thinly to support counter-productive property bubbles at home. Debt was partly serviced by military plunder of the resources from conquered nations. Although the empire battled on–so to speak–for another three centuries following the death of Pliny the Elder at the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, he had understood the damage land speculation was doing to the nation. It had destroyed it: “Latifundia perdidere Italiam“. The building of great estates came at an enormous cost to an impoverished middle class and to the agricultural poor, the latter who flooded into Rome for succour. In rent-seeking economies, it seems farmers will always do it hard whilst the city flourishes. Continue reading

Veterinary Care on Custer’s Campaigns

Look back on our struggle for freedom,
Trace our present day’s strength to its source;
And you’ll find that our pathway to glory
Is strewn with the bones of a horse.
~ AUTHOR UNKNOWN

NOTE: THIS POST MAY BE DIFFICULT TO READ FOR SOME

The Union Cavalry numbers during the first two years of the Civil War did not exceed 60,000 men. But yet 284,000 horses perished in the service of the Cavalry, few of them in battle. In the winter of 1863-1864 alone in the Union forces in Tennessee, 30,000 horses were lost. Why? Inadequate veterinary care. It wasn’t just “inadequate.” It was breathtakingly, completely absent.

When the war started, there was not one single veterinarian in service anywhere in the Army. The quartermaster had the responsibilities of procurement, distribution, and supplying feed and care. And, each company usually had a farrier, but his responsibility ended after a horse was shod. Continue reading

If Schools Don’t Reopen, Funding Should Go to Parents

President Trump suggested that if public schools do not reopen, that money could go to parents so they could send their kids to a private school.

“If schools do not reopen the funding should go to parents,” the president said.

As I wrote in “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,” the only way to save the nation is for parents to take back their local school system and root out the leftist educators. Continue reading

Why College Is Never Coming Back

CAMBRIDGE ~ July 14, 2020 – Photo taken on July 14, 2020 shows a view of the campus of Harvard … [+] XINHUA NEWS AGENCY/GETTY IMAGES

Here’s some great news: one of America’s most broken industries is finally being exposed as a sham. And make no mistake, the end of college as we know it is a great thing.

It’s great for families, who’ll save money and take on less debt putting kids through school. It’s great for kids, who’ll no longer be lured into the socialist indoctrination centers that many American campuses have become. And as I’ll show you, it’s great for investors, who stand to make a killing on the companies that’ll disrupt college for good. Continue reading

The Left’s BIG Lie About Getting Back to School

NOTE: In our personal opinion, we will return to normal if we keep the children OUT of the Public School System and begin to guide them down the proper paths once more. During 2020, we have seen more than ever before just EXACTLY what our school system had done to misguide our kids for at least two generations. ~ Ed.

They say they’re worried about our children’s safety. Don’t believe them.

That societal marker, perhaps more than any other, will tell us when we’ve finally gained the upper hand on COVID-19. It’s understandable, then, that the reopening of our schools has become a hot-button issue. And President Donald Trump is on the side of concerned parents across the political spectrum.
