The Washington Post‘s relatively new mantra reminds readers that “Democracy Dies in Darkness”. In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre perpetrated by a maniacal individual, who owned unfathomable numbers of weapons and was not on law enforcement radar, we are reminded anew that “Propaganda Thrives in Darkness”. The Post, in Oct. 3 editions and online, underscored this truth by publishing a stunning admission by a former “gun control” advocate, who sheds light on a reality that the newspaper’s editors and readers likely will find unsettling, if not heretical.

Do young Americans know, were they ever taught, that the Star Spangled Banner, today our National Anthem, was written to chronicle an actual wartime attack by British naval ships on American soil? Do they know that on a September morning at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry, the star spangled banner still waved because American soldiers, expecting they would die, stood under direct cannon assault to keep the flag’s pole standing? Do they know that the anthem’s writer, lawyer Francis Scott Key, warned British officers of their futility even as they shelled the fort to symbolically take down the American flag? Do they know Scott proclaimed the assault would fail because the American soldier “would rather die on his feet before he’ll live on his knees”?
Of course they know none of this, these ignorant, arrogant athletes who fancy themselves warriors on a battlefield while playing a game. If they knew, how could any one of them fall to a knee? This 12-minute video (provided by Paul Shaffer, a member of the Moore County Republican Men’s Club) should be required viewing in NFL locker rooms and in schools:

Before the analysis of President Trump’s September 19 address to the United Nations is compartmentalized by liberal and conservative writers, I would like to put forth my unvarnished opinion.
I liked the tone and American themed text that was not politically driven drivel pushed by the unrealistic cadre of Democrat politicians. Many listeners didn’t care for his philosophy. The stony silence when our president brought up the long term track record of failed socialism and central control of an economy by strong men dictators indicates Mr. Trump was testing his audience.

Newly minted data confirms what many area citizens are experiencing anecdotally. Demographics are shifting across Pinehurst, Southern Pines and surrounding communities. This is evidenced by just released voter registration statistics.
The Raleigh-based Civitas Institute, a self-described nonprofit policy organization, examined State Board of Elections voter registration data, beginning in early February (just after the Trump inauguration) through September 9, and finds surging numbers of “unaffiliated” voters. The trend actually began in 2009, at the outset of the Obama presidency, and coincides with a stark decline in voters registered as Democrats statewide. Continue reading “Unaffiliated voter surge”
The current frenzy of hyper-political correctness targeting statues, monuments and other images honoring major Confederate figures, including Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, is fueled in part by an agenda-driven, left-leaning media that craves any opportunity to associate Republicans, especially Southerners, past and present with slavery, bigotry and racism.
This attempted connection is flimsy at best because it is historically inaccurate. It arose simply because Republican President Donald Trump condemned a white supremacist rally (organized in support of preserving a Lee statue) in Charlottesville, VA, in strong terms, while simultaneously condemning violent “antifa” protestors who arrived to disrupt the rally. In no time, statue preservation was re-defined by the media as slavery glorification. Continue reading “Milestone year for NC GOP”
