TRAIL LIFE USA – BOYS NEED HEROES

Friday, June 11th, 2021

 

TRAIL LIFE USA
Below you will find information on a Christian organization for young boys that 2 of my grandsons are participating in.   I recently attended an awards ceremony where the boys were presented the awards badges that they earned throughout the year.  It was a lovely ceremony with a prayer and a pledge of allegiance to the flag.  Patriotic songs that we were all taught  in school years ago were sung.   The boys had participated in camping trips to the North Carolina mountains and taught camping and survival skills.  The boys were also taken down to Wilmington to tour the Battleship North Carolina and learned of our nation’s history.  The 12 and older boys were trained in marksmanship very similar to what many of us had to do to qualify in our NRA  classes to obtain a concealed carry permit.  I am quite proud to say that my 13 year old grandson won a marksmanship award.  I now call him “dead eye” !!!   
Please take a moment to read about this  organization that instills excellent life skills and love and respect for our nation and our history.  Nancy      



David, Until recently, boys grew up emulating real-life heroes who seemed larger than life. Today, culture is dismissing the heroism of our fathers and forefathers.

 

 

Boys Need Heroes

 

During the past month, Trail Life has had a unique opportunity to celebrate real-life heroes across America.

 

Until recently, boys grew up emulating real-life heroes who seemed larger than life. Coonskin caps and six-shooters were the uniforms of boyhood. Boys were enthralled with tales about Teddy Roosevelt, John Glenn, and Davy Crockett. Flannelgraph images taught us about the courage of Noah, the faith of Moses, and the collapse of a giant at the hands of a young shepherd boy.

 

But today, rather than celebrating men for their contributions, culture is dismissing the heroism of our fathers and forefathers and emphasizing their shortcomings.  Marvel characters replace real-life role-models, and virtual video games become substitutes for real-life challenges.

 

In a world devoid of strong courageous heroes and sterilized of risk, boys are disappearing into fantasy.

 

The reality is that boys need the examples and leadership of heroic men. Scripture, history, and personal experiences defy the untethered aims of culture and make clear the significant benefits of godly men who act as traditional masculine role-models for boys.

OUR INCREASINGLY UNRECOGNIZABLE CIVILIZATION BY MARK STEYN

Saturday, May 29th, 2021

 

We have to stand firm and stop this assault on our country. Call it what it is – Cultural Marxism which is designed to weaken and undermine America.  .  Nancy

Our Increasingly Unrecognizable Civilization

April/May 2021   by Mark Steyn
Mark Steyn, host of The Mark Steyn Show, writes regularly at steynonline.com and has contributed to numerous publications, including the Daily TelegraphThe Irish TimesThe Wall Street Journal, and The Jerusalem Post. He is the author of several books, including Lights Out: Islam, Free Speech, and The Twilight of the WestAmerica Alone: The End of the World As We Know It, and The [Un]documented Mark Steyn. A frequent guest host of Tucker Carlson Tonight, he was for 15 years a guest host of The Rush Limbaugh Show. His albums include Making Spirits Bright, with Jessica Martin, and Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin’ Cats. From 2008 to 2013, he was a Eugene C. Pulliam Distinguished Visiting Fellow in Journalism at Hillsdale College.

The following is adapted from a speech delivered on April 26, 2021, at a Hillsdale College National Leadership Seminar in Franklin, Tennessee.

I live about 20 minutes south of the Canadian border, which used to be called the longest undefended frontier in the world. People moved freely back and forth across it all day every day. But now it’s been closed for over a year. At one point my daughter asked me to drive her up there, because there was a 30-minute opportunity for people on one side to talk to their friends on the other. “Sad!” as President Trump would say. It was like Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin during the Cold War, except that both sides are now like East Berlin. 

I don’t know how this happened, but it is just one indication that America, and the West in general, have become almost unrecognizable from what they were not that long ago.

Look at just three things we have lost. 

One is equality before the law, something absolutely essential to a free society. In its place, we now have politicized law. If a policeman fatally shoots someone, whether his name is released to the public depends on whether the shooting is consistent with the preferred narrative of the ruling class. A policeman recently took down a young woman who was threatening the life of another young woman with a knife, and that policeman was immediately identified—indeed, his photo was posted and he was threatened by NBA superstar LeBron James on Twitter. On the other hand, we know nothing of the policeman who shot dead an unarmed woman in the U.S. Capitol on January 6. His name will apparently never be released to the public.

Second, border control. Functioning societies, at least since the Peace of Westphalia three centuries ago, have borders. America has no southern border and no plans to get one. The official position of our government seems to be that any of the seven billion persons on this planet has a right to come and stay in the U.S. for three years, until his or her assigned court date comes up. As the number of people with pending cases continues to grow, that three years will extend out to five or seven or 15 years. If we get all seven billion people to come here, the court system will break down entirely and maybe we can go back to having a functioning border.

And third, dare I bring up the fact that it is a real question whether we can go back to agreeing to have open and honest elections? And if we don’t have open and honest elections, control of our borders, and equality before the law, then we don’t have the conditions for politics or free government.

STUDENT INDOCTRINATION – UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL

Thursday, May 27th, 2021

 

One of our readers has shared this information from a school that their child attends.  This is pure indoctrination and to think this all began  with prayers that were not allowed in schools back in the 1960’s.  The Far Left Marxists have been wildly successful in influencing  how our children are being taught. Is it any wonder that all this indoctrination has been happening while the math and science core scores of our children have been falling. 
I have taken the liberty to delete information about which school this is and where it is located.   Nancy    

Dear 7th and 8th Grade Families,

This year, our 7th and 8th grade students have worked hard, online and in person, to explore their own racial identities, learn more about how systemic racism is embedded into America’s past, and interrogate how racism shows up in our communities in the present day. Now, it is time to turn our eyes toward the future.

Next week, via Zoom, students will have the chance to convene in order to discuss how we can make change in the community. Students will discuss action-oriented questions in breakout spaces with the goal of increasing students’ collective activism and cultivating hope for the future.

Connections to our classes:

Throughout 7th and 8th grade students have been studying various texts that dive into the themes of systemic racism, activism, and social justice. Even more so than in a traditional school year, students have had the opportunity to learn separately, which has brought many of our students, as the school’s leaders, to the question: what’s next? Many have asked, “how can we use our power as students to actually make change happen?” Ideas and transformative change often arise in community – which is the purpose of “The Convening”. This will be a space where students can meet to reflect, discuss, and move forward social justice and change within our community.

ISRAEL (YOU GOTTA READ THIS !!!)

Sunday, May 16th, 2021

 

Thanks to one of our readers, Jordan Jacob, a Jewish conservative, for sharing his thoughts regarding the Jewish-American Biden Voters.  Nancy     

DEAR JEWISH-AMERICAN BIDEN VOTERS (and other Democrats),

We, the grassroots, extremist, rightwing, Trump-loving Jews, would like to extend our warmest gratitude to you in electing one Joe Biden. Especially at this time. You were so right all along, our Nazi President Trump––not your President, of course––kept much too much peace in the world. You were so right to seek Twitter peace above all other; peace in Israel is for the birds.

Today, after 1,000 rockets bombarded the tiny Jewish State, we are comforted by the thought that you no longer feel distraught by Trump’s daily tweets and unsavory TV appearances. Likewise, we are comforted in knowing that your brand of Tikkun Olam works so well for you, Israel be damned.

Our racist, homophobic, and misogynist Russian Spy President did irreparable harm. You called it from the start. Let’s reminisce, shall we?

We recall your heated warnings about an outright bloody war with the Muslim world when President Trump reaffirmed Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel and moved his embassy there.  How right you were.

We recall your dire warnings when The Golan was reaffirmed as sovereign to Israel by our 45th. Once more, you warned us about the oncoming onslaught. How right you were, yet again.

Your trembling knees almost buckled when President Trump supported Bibi’s exposé of Iran’s nuclear program and everything else Bibi said over the last four years.

Your notable courage in support of Israel and her people showed its predictable face when our President firmly supported legitimizing settlements in Judea and Shamron. Without delay, you warned us of the inevitable and unavoidable World War III that would ensure by a complete Islamic coalition against Israel. Instead, Abraham Accords were signed and ISIS entirely obliterated. How right you were.

CRITICAL RACE THEORY: WHAT IT IS AND HOW TO FIGHT IT

Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It

March 2021
By   Christopher F. Rufo
Founder and Director, Battlefront
Christopher F. Rufo is founder and director of Battlefront, a public policy research center. He is a graduate of Georgetown University and a former Lincoln Fellow at the Claremont Institute for the Study of Statesmanship and Political Philosophy. As executive director at the Documentary Foundation, he has directed four films for PBS, including most recently America Lost, which explores life in Youngstown, Ohio, Memphis, Tennessee, and Stockton, California. He is also a contributing editor of City Journal, where he covers topics including critical race theory, homelessness, addiction, and crime.

The following is adapted from a lecture delivered at Hillsdale College on March 30, 2021.

Critical race theory is fast becoming America’s new institutional orthodoxy. Yet most Americans have never heard of it—and of those who have, many don’t understand it. It’s time for this to change. We need to know what it is so we can know how to fight it.

In explaining critical race theory, it helps to begin with a brief history of Marxism. Originally, the Marxist Left built its political program on the theory of class conflict. Marx believed that the primary characteristic of industrial societies was the imbalance of power between capitalists and workers. The solution to that imbalance, according to Marx, was revolution: the workers would eventually gain consciousness of their plight, seize the means of production, overthrow the capitalist class, and usher in a new socialist society.

During the 20th century, a number of regimes underwent Marxist-style revolutions, and each ended in disaster. Socialist governments in the Soviet Union, China, Cambodia, Cuba, and elsewhere racked up a body count of nearly 100 million of their own people. They are remembered for their gulags, show trials, executions, and mass starvations. In practice, Marx’s ideas unleashed man’s darkest brutalities.

By the mid-1960s, Marxist intellectuals in the West had begun to acknowledge these failures. They recoiled at revelations of Soviet atrocities and came to realize that workers’ revolutions would never occur in Western Europe or the United States, where there were large middle classes and rapidly improving standards of living. Americans in particular had never developed a sense of class consciousness or class division. Most Americans believed in the American dream—the idea that they could transcend their origins through education, hard work, and good citizenship.

But rather than abandon their Leftist political project, Marxist scholars in the West simply adapted their revolutionary theory to the social and racial unrest of the 1960s. Abandoning Marx’s economic dialectic of capitalists and workers, they substituted race for class and sought to create a revolutionary coalition of the dispossessed based on racial and ethnic categories.

BREAKING UP BIG TECH – PROS AND CON

Wednesday, April 28th, 2021

 

I was supportive of Senator Josh Hawley’s bill to break up the big tech companies because they have become too powerful at restricting the free speech of conservatives.  But, after reading Stephen Moore’s article below, he does make some very valid points  But as Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio noted, “Antitrust laws aren’t the right remedy for political attacks on free speech.”  Read the article and see what you think.   Nancy

GOP trust-busters are embracing a left-wing agenda

It’s not too often that Republicans embrace the agenda of leftist Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. But it’s happening.

Josh Hawley, the young Republican senator from Missouri, has introduced a bill called the Trust-Busting for the Twenty-First Century Act. It may be the most dangerous bill to our economy from a Republican in ages. It would reduce competitiveness, cost millions of jobs, penalize companies for growing and being profitable, kill funding for small-business startups, and empower unprecedented new regulatory powers to the deep state lawyers and bureaucrats in Washington.

Hawley is no fan of the politics of Big Tech (who is?), so he wants to put new teeth into antitrust laws that were birthed during America’s first “Progressive Era.” His bill would:

  1. Ban mergers and acquisitions by firms with a market cap of over $100 billion.
  2. Change the standard of “monopolistic” behavior from causing “consumer harm” to one that emphasizes “the protection of competition.”
  3. Significantly expand the power of federal regulatory agencies to rein in domestic firms in the high-tech sector.

Hawley, whose background is as a lawyer (of course), defends his bill by saying: “This country and this government shouldn’t be run by a few megacorporations.” The Republican Party “has got to become the party of trust-busting once again.”

Yikes. That’s like saying we should bring back smallpox.

Trust-busting is based on the century-old leftist fairy tale that says rapacious “robber barons had taken over America.” Economist Burt Folsom exploded these liberal lies in his classic book The Myth of The Robber Barons, which shows definitively that J.P. Morgan, Henry Ford, Andrew Mellon, Andrew Carnegie, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and John D. Rockefeller were anything but villains who raped consumers with their monopolistic behavior and “stockpiles of wealth.”
