Third of Washington’s Electors REFUSED to Vote For Hillary Clinton

For weeks the story has been that so-called “faithless electors” would jump ship against President-elect Donald Trump, but that’s hardly what we’ve seen today as Trump secured his historic victory. In fact, one third of Washington’s electors went against Hillary Clinton.

Betsy DeVos Prefers Education Choice Over Crappy Government Schools? I’m In.

There's a lot to worry about in the coming presidency of Donald Trump, but a few bright spots appear for those of us who want to run our own lives with minimal government interference. In particular, the naming of Betsy DeVos as the president-elect's pick for Secretary of Education holds a lot of promise for parents who want to move past decades of crappy politician-directed schooling to gain more say in how their children learn.

Ukrainian MP calls Russian ambassador’s killer ‘a hero,’ FB reacts with outrage


Ukraine’s official reaction to the assassination of Russia’s ambassador in Ankara has been cool to say the least – no condolences have come from President Poroshenko. However, it is the reaction of an Ukrainian MP on Facebook that has caused real outrage online.

Who profits from Turkey’s 'Sarajevo moment'?

Let’s cut to the chase: Ankara 2016 is not Sarajevo 1914. This is not a prelude to WWIII. Whoever plotted the assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrey Karlov – a cool, calm, collected old-school diplomat - risks a mighty blowback.

RELEASES STATEMENT ON RECENT RADICAL ISLAMIC TERROR ATTACKS

December 20, 2016

  |  

202-228-7561

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today released the following statement in the wake of radical Islamic terror attacks across the globe:
“Heidi’s and my prayers are with the victims and families impacted by the recent, vicious rash of attacks in Jordan, Turkey, and Germany. They are a grim reminder that ISIS, al Qaeda, and other radical Islamic terrorist groups are not confined to the so-called caliphate in Syria and Iraq. Both by infiltrating the streams of refugees pouring into Europe and through an aggressive campaign of online radicalization, terrorists have been seeded throughout the west, waiting for the signal to strike. These are not lone wolves with mysterious personal motivations for their attacks--they are a coordinated pack attempting to undermine our civilization, which is by its nature anathema to their jihad.  We must redouble our resolve to partner closely with our allies to prevent a broader outbreak of violence that might very well hit us here at home.”

Bill Clinton says his wife would have been elected president if it weren't for FBI Director James Comey and those democracy-destroying Russian hackers. "I watched her battle through that bogus email deal," the former president said yesterday as he cast his New York electoral vote for the Democratic nominee. "She fought through everything, and she prevailed against it all....Then at the end we had the Russians and the FBI deal....She couldn't prevail against that."

Threatening electors violates federal law. So why isn’t Loretta Lynch doing anything about it?

Before Donald Trump’s stunning victory on November 8, liberals called for acceptance of election results. But since the election didn’t go as they’d planned, some have taken to harassing and intimidating electors in an attempt to change the election results. Some of these threats may violate federal law, yet the Justice Department acts strangely uninterested in investigating.

While many of Hillary Clinton’s top advisers have focused their post-presidential election fury on blaming alleged Russian interference and FBI Director James Comey for Clinton’s loss, some in the so-called “Hillaryland” orbit are looking inward, including pointing fingers at Clinton’s most-trusted aide: Huma Abedin.

Thomas Jefferson and the Jefferson Memorial

From The Founders, Religion and Government:




Today we end our tour of Washington D.C. at the Jefferson Memorial. It is newer than the other memorials we have seen. Construction began in 1939. The building was completed in 1943 with the bronze statue added in 1947. It sits on the Tidal Basin off of the mall in a line with the White House and the Washington Monument.

The building is neoclassical in design with Ionic columns, a portico, egg and dart molding, and a dome. The last is certainly fitting as Thomas Jefferson himself used domes in the buildings he designed. The walls and circular steps are of white marble from Vermont. Like the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson is open air. Over the main entrance is a portico featuring bas relief sculptures of the members of the Committee of Five which wrote the Declaration of Independence.

The most stunning feature of the interior is the statue of Jefferson himself. It is a freestanding bronze towering 19 feet tall and weighing five tons. As Jefferson stares off into the distance some say he is keeping an eye on the White House. This would be a fitting thing for the man who was concerned with limiting the power of government. However, he is actually facing the Treasury Building and looking at the statue of Alexander Hamilton his greatest political rival. Somehow this also seems fitting.

Like the Lincoln Memorial, the walls of the Jefferson are covered with quotes. Beneath the dome encircling the walls is a quote from a letter Jefferson wrote to Dr. Benjamin Rush:

"...I have sworn upon the altar of god eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man."

Panel one is a quotation from the Declaration of Independence of which Jefferson was the primary author:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men. We...solemnly publish and declare, that these colonies are and of right ought to be free and independent states...And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."

Panel two is quote from Jefferson's "A Bill for Establishing Religious Freedom.” As it appears on the wall:

"Almighty God hath created the mind free. All attempts to influence it by temporal punishments or burthens...are a departure from the plan of the Holy Author of our religion...No man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship or ministry or shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief, but all men shall be free to profess and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion. I know but one code of morality for men whether acting singly or collectively."

Panel three is a combination of quotes from his “A Summary View of the Rights of British America,” Notes on the State of Virginia, Query XVIII, his autobiography, a letter to George Wythe, and a letter to George Washington:

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever. Commerce between master and slave is despotism. Nothing is more certainly written in the book of fate than that these people are to be free. Establish a law for educating the common people. This it is the business of the state and on a general plan."

Panel four is on the Constitution and was taken from a letter to Samuel Kercheval:

"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

There was some controversy at the time of construction as critics pointed out that quotes were included which seemed to support the policies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, president at the time of planning and construction. In fact, Jefferson would not have supported the New Deal or any expansion of the federal government. It would seem controversy is nothing new. Eighty years ago it was using the words of a Founder to support going beyond the Constitution. Today Jefferson's words in support of religious freedom are twisted to support limiting the liberties of the religious.

"I am for freedom of religion, & against all maneuvres to bring about a legal ascendancy of one sect over another."
~ Letter to Elbridge Gerry (1799)

On This Day In History > Dec 18, 1777: States Give Thanks

From The Founding of the United States:




On This Day In History > Dec 18, 1777: 
States Give Thanks

"The new United States celebrates its first national day of thanksgiving on Thursday, December 18, 1777, commemorating the American victory at the Battle of Saratoga after the surrender of General John Burgoyne and 5,000 British troops in October 1777. 

In proclaiming the first national day of thanksgiving, Congress wrote, "It is therefore recommended to the Legislative or executive Powers of these UNITED STATES, to set apart THURSDAY, the eighteenth Day of December next, for solemn THANKSGIVING and PRAISE; That at one Time and with one Voice the good People may express the grateful Feelings of their Hearts, and consecrate themselves to the Service of their Divine Benefactor"

Neither when the Congress proclaimed the day of Thanksgiving on November 1, nor when the population celebrated in December, were they aware that on December 17, the French would finally formalize a military and trade alliance with the rebelling states. These were not disconnected events. The victory at Saratoga convinced the French king that the Americans might be worthy allies and the ensuing alliance made an American victory possible.

Merely having a national day of thanksgiving was a tremendous step forward in creating an American identity. Previously, the colonies had celebrated individually or as part of the British Empire. Now they had experienced an event that had affected them all and formalized a celebration that involved them all. With the French alliance, they had an ally who supported them all. Americans had just taken a major step on the tortured trail from colonies to states and from states to nation."

Boston Tea Party

From The Founders, Religion and Government:




Boston Tea Party
December 16, 1773

Today marks the anniversary of one of the most critical events on the road to the American Revolution, the Boston Tea Party. It was not done to protest taxes but as a statement against tyranny. Let us never forget the words of Abigail Adams and "Remember all Men would be tyrants if they could." We are the defense against tyrants. It is for this reason, to stop tyranny, that we have the Second Amendment.

Today, in honor of the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, we give you a first hand account of the event from one of the participants, George Hewes:

"It was now evening, and I immediately dressed myself in the costume of an Indian, equipped with a small hatchet, which I and my associates denominated the tomahawk, with which, and a club, after having painted my face and hands with coal dust in the shop of a blacksmith, I repaired to Griffin's wharf, where the ships lay that contained the tea. When I first appeared in the street after being thus disguised, I fell in with many who were dressed, equipped and painted as I was, and who fell in with me and marched in order to the place of our destination.

"When we arrived at the wharf, there were three of our number who assumed an authority to direct our operations, to which we readily submitted. They divided us into three parties, for the purpose of boarding the three ships which contained the tea at the same time. The name of him who commanded the division to which I was assigned was Leonard Pitt. The names of the other commanders I never knew. We were immediately ordered by the respective commanders to board all the ships at the same time, which we promptly obeyed. The commander of the division to which I belonged, as soon as we were on board the ship, appointed me boatswain, and ordered me to go to the captain and demand of him the keys to the hatches and a dozen candles. I made the demand accordingly, and the captain promptly replied, and delivered the articles; but requested me at the same time to do no damage to the ship or rigging. We then were ordered by our commander to open the hatches and take out all the chests of tea and throw them overboard, and we immediately proceeded to execute his orders, first cutting and splitting the chests with our tomahawks, so as thoroughly to expose them to the effects of the water.

"In about three hours from the time we went on board, we had thus broken and thrown overboard every tea chest to be found in the ship, while those in the other ships were disposing of the tea in the same way, at the same time. We were surrounded by British armed ships, but no attempt was made to resist us.

"...The next morning, after we had cleared the ships of the tea, it was discovered that very considerable quantities of it were floating upon the surface of the water; and to prevent the possibility of any of its being saved for use, a number of small boats were manned by sailors and citizens, who rowed them into those parts of the harbor wherever the tea was visible, and by beating it with oars and paddles so thoroughly drenched it as to render its entire destruction inevitable."

Kansas City Weekend Weather

From US National Weather Service Kansas City Missouri:




Well, if you like snow, this forecast just got a little more exciting for you (and if you don't like the snow then don't shoot the messenger because I'm on your team)! However, first things first, as the snow is the second of our triple threat weekend. Threat #1 continues to be the potential for freezing drizzle today and tonight. South of a St Joseph to Kirksville line, light ice accumulations will be possible late this morning into the afternoon hours. However, along and north of the St Joseph to Kirksville line up to a tenth of an inch of ice accumulations will be possible as freezing drizzle is expected to begin late this morning and continue through tonight. Threat #2 will begin late Saturday morning as freezing drizzle will transition to snow. Snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches now looks possible over a large swath of the area including the KC Metro. The bulk of the snow will fall during the afternoon and evening hours before moving out of the area by midnight. Behind this storm system is Threat #3 in the form of very dangerous temperatures and wind chills on Sunday morning. Low temperatures by Sunday morning will range from zero to 10 below zero with wind chill values between 15 and 25 below zero and even approaching 30 below zero near the Missouri/Iowa border. Highs on Sunday will only reach the upper single digits to mid-teens. Everyone, please be safe out there this weekend!
