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.

VIDEO – CARING FOR THE FALLEN

Monday, June 7th, 2021
Today, June 6, D Day, is remembered as the turning point of the Second World War.  Many lives were lost that day and this video shows the very caring way the American Battle Monument Commission has painstakingly  cared for the fallen of all our wars that were fought overseas.   Nancy

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

This is an excellent speech given at Hillsdale College explaining how destructive the Critical Race Theory is to our country.  Please share with your contacts.  Nancy

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.

NORTH CAROLINA SCHOOL DISTRICT – ‘DISRUPT WHITE CULTURE’

Friday, March 19th, 2021

 

Another very alarming account of how liberal ideology (lessons on “whiteness,” “toxic masculinity,” “microaggressions,” “trauma-informed yoga,” and “applied critical race theory.”)  has taken over our schools.  The author points out that North Carolina is a red state.  We can only imagine how bad it must be in blue states.    Please click on the link to see the various text and twitter feeds.  Nancy

North Carolina School District Launches Campaign to ‘Disrupt White Culture,’ Urges Teachers to Subvert White Parents and Families

By Cassandra Fairbanks   March 18, 2021

North Carolina’s largest school district has launched a campaign against “whiteness in educational spaces” and is encouraging teachers to subvert parents to push “antiracism” directly onto students without their consent.

The anti-white racism is taking place in the Wake County Public School System, which serves the greater Raleigh area.

In a shocking Twitter thread by journalist Christopher Rufo, he explained that last year the district held a teachers’ conference with lessons on “whiteness,” “toxic masculinity,” “microaggressions,” “trauma-informed yoga,” and “applied critical race theory.”

“The conference began with a ‘land acknowledgement,’ a ritual recognition suggesting that white North Carolinians are colonizers on stolen Native American land. The conference leaders encouraged educators to form ‘equity teams’ in schools and push the new party line: ‘antiracism,’” Rufo tweeted along with slides from the conference.

Rufo explained that school administrators claimed that “(white) cultural values” include “denial,” “fear,” “blame,” “control,” “punishment,” “scarcity,” and “one-dimensional thinking.” They told white teachers they must “challenge the dominant ideology” of “whiteness” and “disrupt” white culture.

The conference also discussed parents as being a problem for pushing their brainwashing onto the youth.

A STORM OVER THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC

Monday, March 8th, 2021

 

So much hangs in the balance for the future of our republic .  This article describes how and why it is happening and how it can be traced back to Cultural Marxism.   Nancy  

A Storm Over the American Republic

By Guy Milliere  Dr. Guy Millière, a professor at the University of Paris, is the author of 27 books on France and Europe.   December 7, 2021
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: 

  • Part of America has “declared war” and “is intent on destroying the most tolerant, inclusive, egalitarian society ever created,” wrote the American author David Horowitz recently. “The good news,” he added, “is that a patriotic movement has risen, rededicated to the propositions that all men are created equal and endowed with God-given rights to life and liberty, and is prepared to defend them”.

    A storm is currently hanging over the United States. The coming months will reveal if this patriotic movement will dispel it…….

  • A new trend took shape in the 1960s. Its strategy seems to have been defined by a German activist, Rudi Dutschke — a follower of the Italian Marxist Antonio Gramsci — as “the long march through the institutions”. As the author Roger Kimball describes, it gradually took hold of the humanities sector in universities, then spread throughout the education system, the cultural sector, the mainstream media, and finally the political sphere.
  • The atmosphere in the United States remains poisonous. Critics claim that stoking in the public is being done on purpose — to create a false narrative that not only is Trump supposedly a “threat to democracy,” but that his more than 74 million supporters are, too. Others, however, claim that the real threat to democracy is actually these serial liars, violators of the Constitution and falsifiers of information.
  • The right to challenge and criticize, which is an integral part of the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment, appears seriously threatened. The right to defend oneself against charges also appears threatened, and the legal profession dangerous to practice.
  • Expressing doubts about the November 3 election is now a liability. Substantiated reports show that it was far from perfect. The American economist Peter Navarro, in his private capacity, drew up three meticulous analyses: “The Immaculate Deception,” “The Art of the Steal” and “The Navarro Report”. They have been zealously disparaged — many think unjustly.
  • Some authors describe what is happening as a slide towards authoritarianism. They note that many Americans and corporations, while behaving in an increasingly authoritarian manner, accuse their opponents of being authoritarian — in other words, blaming their opponents for what they themselves are doing.

IN MEMORY OF RUSH LIMBAUGH

Wednesday, February 17th, 2021

 

Many of you have probably also received this email from Larry P Arnn of Hillsdale College (see below) .  Rush spoke often of Hillsdale College and  it occurred to me that a donation to Hillsdale College in memory of Rush Limbaugh would be a meaningful way to honor the life of this incredible man.     
If you would also like to donate to Hillsdale College in memory of Rush, I am including their website donation link    community.hillsdale.edu/page.aspx?pid=427
I join you in saying a prayer for Rush and his family.  We will forever be indebted to him for his wisdom, courage, guidance and commitment to preserving and protecting America.    Nancy

Subject: My friend Rush Limbaugh

Dear Ms. Clark,

My friend Rush Limbaugh, who died today, was a force of nature. More than any other individual, he was responsible for breaking the Left’s media monopoly. His voice on the radio, where he has promoted Hillsdale College for more than 10 years, will never be equaled. He loved our country always, and came to a deep love of God. His massive audience will miss him, I will miss him, and the country will miss him. Our prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace.

Larry P. Arnn

President, Hillsdale College
