In the town of Paradise, almost completely destroyed by one of the deadliest fires in California's history, a fire fighter was able to save an American flag. He made sure to keep the flag from touching the ground until he found a place to display it, on a mailbox in front of a decimated house.

(A brief comment for this week.)


For years, kids have been taught in school to hate America. Now, it seems white kids are being taught to hate themselves. What do you suppose will the the consequences of such teaching? I think I know. Cultural Marxism.

Back to the top


Education and Propaganda

. Dot "Texas School Reinstates Teacher Placed on Leave after Posting LGBTQ, Black Lives Matter Posters." Less and less education. More and more propaganda.
. Dot "President Trump Calls for 'Patriotic Education' in Schools: 'Left's War on Police, Faith, History, and American Values Is Tearing Our Country Apart'." Indeed.
. Dot "White George Washington University Professor Admits to Falsely Claiming Black Identities: 'I Am a Culture Leech'." Will there be any consequences? Were she Republican, there certainly would be.
. Dot "Pennsylvania College Hates Law Enforcement, Removes Thin Blue Line Face Masks from Bookstore."
. Dot "Christian College Rescinds Mike Pence Invitation Amid Student Backlash."
. Dot "New York Assistant Principal Goes on Profanity-Laced Tirade at Rochester BLM Protest: 'F*** the Police!'" How many of those we trust to teach our children are instead indoctrinating them with hatred of America? Thousands? Tens of thousands? Hundreds of thousands?
. Dot "12-Year-Old Suspended for Briefly Showing Toy Gun in Online Class." Teaching kids their freedoms are restricted. This is an outrage.
. Dot "Dept. Of Education Looking into States Teaching with 1619 Project." There are those (leftists) who wish to instill hatred of America in our kids (and everyone else). These people (leftists) wish to overthrow America and create a socialist government.
. Dot "Harvard Hires PLO Executive to Mentor Students."
. Dot "Horowitz: Thousands of Cases but ZERO Hospitalizations in Colleges: This Is GOOD News. But States and Colleges Force Draconian Lockdowns."
. Dot "Antisemitic Content Voted into California Public School Curriculum." Outrageous.
. Dot "EXCLUSIVE: Texas A&M Prof Who Called Trump 'Fat Klansman' Disparages Conservatives & Christians in Class, Multiple Students Say." Teaching hate.
. Dot "Here's Where Rioters Learn Their Hate: Watch 'Trainer' Say 'All' White People Are 'Racists,' 'Not Human'." So destructive!
. Dot "The Great American Failure: US Universities Teach How to Overthrow the Government."
. Dot "Professor Defends Murder of Portland Trump Supporter: 'I See Nothing Wrong with It from a Moral Perspective'." What are professors teaching your kids?
. Dot "Demand Free Speech for Tulane University Students!" Don't hold your breath.
. Dot "Theology Professor Compares Nun Who Spoke at RNC to Nazi."

Global-Warming Nonsense and the Leftist Environmental Movement

. Dot "WA Gov. Jay Inslee: It's Time for Us to Call Wildfires what They Actually Are." Why not call the arson fires -- arson fires? Because that doesn't benefit Democrats.

Government Run Amuck

. Dot "Bill Requiring Public Corporations to Appoint Minority or LGBTQ Leaders to Their Boards Headed to Newsom for Signature." So much for free enterprise.
. Dot "California Legislature Passes Bill to Soften Criminal Penalty for LGBT Adults Who Have Sex with Underage Teens." The bill sponson's name is Wiener?
. Dot "Well, It Looks Like Flynn Judge's Game Plan Was Guessed Correctly…in May." Justice denied. This is absolutely inexcusable.
. Dot "Owner of Destroyed Kenosha Car Dealership Blasts Local Officials over Rioting, Claiming 'They Let It Happen'." Indeed they did. The main purpose of government is to protect the people. The government failed completely. Utterly and totally.
. Dot "Tennessee Woman Who Died Six Months Ago Receives Letter Last Week Saying She's COVID-19 Positive." I'm sure her ballot will be arriving soon.
. Dot "Detroit Judge Bans Police from Using Tear Gas, Batons on BLM Protesters Even if Demonstrations Escalate." We certainly can't have law and order in the streets, can we. Does the judge think the police can do its job with "pretty please" requests?
. Dot "Obama-era Pentagon Training Manual Attacks White Men." Our government teaches hate and racism.
. Dot "JUST IN: Mueller Announcement Shocks Nation -- Rumors Are True."
. Dot "Mueller's Team Was as Corrupt as They Could Be." Absolutely! But where is the accountability? Where is the justice? Will the team get away with its corruption? (Looks like it probably will.)


. Dot "Travel Tech: Airline Successfully Tests First 'Flying-Wing' in Game Changing Design."
. Dot "Radio Flyer Car Original Story by Mike Nederbrock for KTUU-TV." (Video.)
. Dot "OK Go -- this too Shall Pass -- Rube Goldberg Machine -- Official Video." Amazing! Hard to believe.
. Dot "Second Oldest Trick in Sleight of Hand." How'd he do that?

The Media, Including Social Media

. Dot "Joe Biden's 'You Ain't Black' Part 2? Media Mock Black Speakers at RNC." Sounds racist to me.
. Dot "Only an NYT Columnist Could Tweet Something So out of Touch about the Rioting." Let's hear it for "fake news."
. Dot "Washington Post Promises There Will Be Catastrophic Violence if Biden Does Not Win." If that sounds like extortion, that's because it is.
. Dot "WATCH: Cuomo, Lemon Mock White People, Trump Supporters, Single out Christians." What sort of America do you wish to live in?
. Dot "They're Now Admitting They Lie to You but It's for Your Own Good."
. Dot "Twitter Expands Censorship." How many think this will be done fairly? Censorship means freedom of speech has been dispatched.

Must-Read (or Must-View or Must-Listen)

. Dot "CDC: 6% of Coronavirus Deaths Were Solely from COVID-19." Isn't that interesting.
. Dot "Oops: It Looks Like the Vast Majority of Positive COVID Results Should Have Been Negative." Isn't that interesting.
. Dot "Democratic Operative Goes into Detail about How He Rigged Elections." Note it was a Democrat.
. Dot "Without Voter Fraud Operations, You Would Have Never Heard of Kamala Harris." That would be Democrat voter fraud.
. Dot "BLM Activist: 'I'm Ready to Put These Police in the F***ing Ground,' 'Burn the White House Down'." Yes, we're dealing with a revolution. We are seeing those who advocate the violent overthrow of the government. That used to be called treason. Now, it's called "mostly peaceful protests."
. Dot "Biden: If Trump Is Reelected, Violence Won't Stop." Because Democrats want revolution.
. Dot "More than 36 Street Gangs in Chicago Reportedly Vow to Shoot on Sight Any Cop Who Has a Weapon Drawn in Public." Left-wing gangs are bound and determined to intensify the mayhem they have been causing.
. Dot "Who's Cheering for Violence? It Isn't Republicans." It's Democrats who want a revolution. They're the ones condoning and encouraging violence and anarchy.
. Dot "The Face of the Democratic Party Isn't Joe Biden, It's the Raging Mob." The whole of the Democrat party is the raging mob.
. Dot "Kenosha Police Reveal Most Riot Arrests Were from outside the City." Planned anarchy.
. Dot "The Joe Biden Riots." Calling a spade a spade.
. Dot "The Lockdown Has Gone from a Mistake to a Crime."
. Dot "Meet the Rioting Criminals Kamala Harris Helped Bail out of Jail." And we should make her VP? Heaven help us!
. Dot "You Cannot Make this up: DC Wants to Remove . . . the Washington Monument." Yes, leftists wish the overthrow of capitalism and what has made America great. They hate our Founders and everyone who believes in American greatness.
. Dot "Confessions of a Voter Fraud: I Was a Master at Fixing Mail-in Ballots." With enough Democrat voter fraud, Donald Trump doesn't have a chance.
. Dot "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Nonsense." The political correctness police are outraged. Such truths must not be uttered.
. Dot "University Lesson: 'If a Few of the Worst Republican Politicians Were Assassinated, It Wouldn't Be the End of the World'." It seems so much of higher education nowadays is about promoting a revolution. And to overthrow America as we knew it.
. Dot "In Defense of Common Values." Who is destroying our common values? It is the Left.
. Dot "Words Matter."
. Dot "California Schools Kowtow to Black Lives Matter's Marxist Agenda." Who will teach about the goodness of freedom? Who?
. Dot "OCTOBER SURPRISE: Facebook Announces New Big Brother Censorship Policy to Go into Effect before Election." Squelching freedom of speech.
. Dot "The Creep Factor."
. Dot "CDC Admits Only 6% of COVID-19 Patients Died from Virus Alone." Wow! Why do you suppose this hasn't been reported by the mainstream media?
. Dot "The Big COVID Con Exposed." But not exposed enough.
. Dot "How the Far Left Fails Basic Math." The bigger problem: the far left fails basic truth. Constantly.
. Dot "Democrats Have Created 'Two Americas'."
. Dot "A Message for LeBron James." A very important message. Will he listen? Of course not.
. Dot "My Experience Leaving President Trump's RNC Acceptance Speech." America is no longer the America we knew and loved.
. Dot "Michael Goodwin: The New York Times Is Plunging Head First into New Depths of Partisanship and Deceit." It would be hard to go much lower. It is not only tragic, it harms the republic.
. Dot "Today and Yesterday." And the world of difference between them.
. Dot "Stealing an Election in Slow-Motion." And amazingly, Republicans never win another election. And America crashes and burns. Thanks, Democrats.
. Dot "Dennis Prager: I Finally Realized Why the Left Really Hates America so Much." Very interesting.
. Dot "Democrats Playing the Long Con." Democrats have designed, implemented, and refined their long con. If they want, no Republican will ever again be elected to office. Certainly no Republican running for president. Right now, it seems their con will work just as it was designed.
. Dot "Democrats' Plot to Abolish Election Night." And steal the election.
. Dot "China Expert's Ominous Warning on China Has US Officials Concerned."
. Dot "The Left's Dangerous Delegitimization of the Election." We are at a very dangerous point in our history. And we are there because of Democrats.
. Dot "Horowitz: E-MASK-ulation: How We Have Been Lied to so Dramatically about Masks."
. Dot "Civil War: How Do Civil Wars Happen?" We are watching in real time how they happen.
. Dot "This Obama-Biden Administration Failure Killed More Americans than COVID-19." Bet you didn't know that. (I didn't.)
. Dot "The Left Is Setting the Stage for a Coup if Trump Wins." Democrats are plotting treason. Big time. If they can't get their way, look out! This puts our republic in real danger! Democrats are doing this.
. Dot "Two Los Angeles Sheriff Deputies Shot Multiple Times in a 'Straight Ambush' Attack." This doesn't sound like violence. This sounds like war.
. Dot "So. Much. Stupid." Over and over and over again.
. Dot "Warning: What's Happening in Las Vegas Will Destroy America." And very quickly.
. Dot "Surprise, Surprise: Data Reveals Where the Majority of Biden's Donations Came from -- and It's Bad News for Dems." Democrats wouldn't lie, would they? Of course they would lie. They've been doing it for a long, long time.


. Dot "Crowd Cheers News of Man Shot Dead in Portland: 'I Am Not Sad that a F***ing Fascist Died Tonight!'." It seems the revolution is fully underway.
. Dot "Women Always Have to Pick up the Check for Democrats."
. Dot "Are Democrats Trying to Spark a Violent Revolution -- or Just Accidentally Doing It?" Oh, to be sure, they're not doing it by accident.
. Dot "Shock Study: Hand Sanitizers Making Corona Stronger, More Able to Survive and Transmit." What? It's hard to know whom to believe.
. Dot "Police Go Where the Crime Is." (A PragerU video.)
. Dot "Stabbing Suspect Said He 'Felt the Need to Find a White Male to Kill' after Watching Cop Videos: Report." And too many Democrats refuse to condemn such actions.
. Dot "VIDEO: Man Bashed in Back of Head with Bricks, Falls Face-First to Sidewalk. Observers Recording Sneak Attack Laugh and Howl." I bet if the attacker were white and the victim were black, we'd hear a whole lot more about this. There would be riots all over the place.
. Dot "Antifa 'Commander' Cried in 'Fetal Position' after Being Caught with Flamethrower, Smoke Grenades on Way to Protest." We need more rioters crying in a fetal position.
. Dot "'Horrible Things Are Happening Right before Our Eyes': The Left Is NORMALIZING Pedophilia, Child Sex Trafficking." That would be the "caring" and "compassionate" Left.
. Dot "Trump Orders Fed to Stop Funding Sanctuary Cities, NY, San Fran to Lose Billions." It's about time the lawlessness of these cities is subject to some consequences. The rest of the country shouldn't have to fund their anarchy.
. Dot "Man Fired over Trump 2020 Hat Claims Double Standard." Will there come a time when it is illegal to say anything conservative? We seem to be near that point right now.
. Dot "NYC: Teens Rob, Punch 74-Year-Old Woman in Broad Daylight." What is happening to America? And why?
. Dot "Organized Hit-Job: AntiFa Execution of MAGA Fan Was Planned, Victim Was Stalked." I ask again: What is happening to America? Why are Democrats killing people?
. Dot "WATCH: 'Peaceful Protester' Throws Molotov Cocktail Police, Catches Fire Instead." Poetic justice?
. Dot "Hair Salon Had to Remove Job Ad for 'Happy' Stylist Because It Is 'Discriminatory' against Unhappy People." Unhappy people of the world -- unite!
. Dot "What Happened on 9/11?" (PragerU video.)
. Dot "Watch: Illegal BLM Roadblock Gets Busted as State Troopers Arrive to Make Arrests." What a concept: Arrest those who are engaged in illegal activity. Do you think there's a chance it will catch on?
. Dot "Watch: Protesters in Pittsburgh Descend on Elderly Diners, Drink Their Beer, Scream Obscenities: 'F*** the White People'." This isn't protesting. This is plain and simple theft. And more.
. Dot "Liberal Privilege on Full Display." But liberals ignore such hypocrisy. Always.

. Dot "BREAKING: Game over -- Rambling Joe Biden Caught in Camera . . ."

. Dot "Read: Anonymous Neighbors Write Nasty Note to Family with Trump Sign in Their Yard." Many on the left who consider themselves "tolerant" aren't tolerant at all. Quite to the contrary.
. Dot "Viral Video Shows Leading Democrats Promoting 'Uprisings,' 'Unrest,’ Harassment." Who was encouraging riots and arson and anarchy in cities all across America? Democrats! That was when they thought the destruction and murders would help them beat Donald Trump.

. Dot "Kenosha Crowd Cheers for Trump while Dem Politicians Tell Him to Stay Away."

. Dot "One Lone Biden Supporter Shows up to Kenosha for Old Joe's Visit (Video)." Well, that's a start.
. Dot "SHOCK VIDEO: Trump Supporter Kicked in the Head, Chased down Street by BLM Mob." Democrats seem to be getting more and more aggressive.

Things Have Changed

I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never wished to live anywhere else. This is my home and I was privileged to be born here. But today I woke up and as I had my morning coffee, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, something evil has invaded our nation, and our lives are never going to be the same.

I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life -- so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.

You can't justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind!
Dot If a dude pretends to be a woman, you are required to pretend with him.

Dot Somehow it's un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America.

Dot Russians influencing our elections are bad, but illegals voting in our elections are good.

Dot It was cool for Joe Biden to "blackmail" the President of Ukraine, but it's an impeachable offense if Donald Trump inquires about it.

Dot Twenty is too young to drink a beer, but eighteen is old enough to vote.

Dot People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves.

Dot People who have never been to college should pay the debts of college students who took out huge loans for their degrees.

Dot Immigrants with tuberculosis and polio are welcome, but you'd better be able to prove your dog is vaccinated.

Dot Irish doctors and German engineers who want to immigrate to the US must go through a rigorous vetting process, but any illiterate gang-bangers who jump the southern fence are welcome.

Dot $5 billion for border security is too expensive, but $1.5 trillion for "free" health care is not.

Dot If you cheat to get into college you go to prison, but if you cheat to get into the country you go to college for free.

Dot People who say there is no such thing as gender were demanding a female President.

Dot We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us.

Dot Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

Dot Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a violation of THEIR rights.

Dot And pointing out all this hypocrisy somehow makes us "racists!"
Nothing makes sense anymore, no values, no morals, no civility and people are dying of a Chinese virus, but it racist to refer to it as Chinese even though it began in China. We are clearly living in an upside down world where right is wrong and wrong is right, where moral is immoral and immoral is moral, where good is evil and evil is good.

Adopt a Terrorist

A Canadian female liberal wrote a lot of letters to the Canadian government, complaining about the treatment of captive insurgents (terrorists) being held in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities. She demanded a response to her letter.

She received back the following reply:
From: National Defence Headquarters
M Gen George R. Pearkes Bldg., 15 NT
101 Colonel By Drive
Ottawa , ON K1A 0K2

Dear Concerned Citizen,

Thank you for your recent letter expressing your profound concern of treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists captured by Canadian Forces, who were subsequently transferred to the Afghanistan Government and are currently being held by Afghan officials in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities.

Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinions were heard loud and clear here in Ottawa. You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of National Defence, to be called "Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers" program, or L.A.R.K. for short.

In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided, on a trial basis, to divert several terrorists and place them in homes of concerned citizens such as yourself, around the country, under those citizens personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Toronto next Monday.

Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud is your detainee, and is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint. You will be pleased to know that we will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with your recommendations.

Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his 'attitudinal problem' will help him overcome those character flaws. Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counselling and home schooling, however, we strongly recommend that you hire some assistant caretakers.

Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbours or relatives about your house guest, as he might get agitated or even violent, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless in your opinion, this might offend him. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills either in your home or wherever you choose to take him while helping him adjust to life in our country.

Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters except sexually,since he views females as a form of property, thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him.

You also should know that he has shown violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the dress code that he will recommend as more appropriate attire. I'm sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of respecting his culture and religious beliefs' as described in your letter.

You take good care of Ahmed and remember that we will try to have a counsellor available to help you over any difficulties you encounter while Ahmed is adjusting to Canadian culture.

Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. Good luck and God bless you.

Gordon O'Connor
