WARNINGS FROM THE FOUNDING FATHERS
“If Congress can employ money indefinitely into the general welfare, and are the sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their own hands the education, establishing in like manner schools throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may undertake the regulation of all roads other than post roads, everything, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress. Were the power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would subvert the very foundations and transmute the very nature of the limited Government established by the people of America.”
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
“Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics and limited monarchies derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates.”
“Experience has shewn that under the best of forms of government, those entrusted with power, in time and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”
One of Sheila’s favorite quotes:
“Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program.”
The Aurora Tree

Explanation: Yes, but can your tree do this? Pictured is a visual coincidence between the dark branches of a nearby tree and bright glow of a distant aurora. The beauty of the aurora — combined with how it seemed to mimic a tree right nearby — mesmerized the photographer to such a degree that he momentarily forgot to take pictures. When viewed at the right angle, it seemed that this tree had aurora for leaves. Fortunately, before the aurora morphed into a different overall shape, he came to his senses and capture the awe-inspiring momentary coincidence. Typically triggered by solar explosions, aurora are caused by high energy electrons impacting the Earth’s atmosphere around 150 kilometers up. The unusual Earth-sky collaboration was witnessed in March of 2017 in Iceland.

It’s here, our White readers can now get some peace.
Gaga’s dogs are returned. She is trying to renege on the reward. Give the reward.

The Current Events Editor: What is your first item, LL ?
Beach Cat: The German Women’s Beach Volleyball team protested until they were approved to wear the traditional bikini uniforms. The Qatarians relented and permitted the tiny bikinis.
One thing the forceful women did agree to was to have one of my old travel outfits ( when I was covering the war back in 2005 ) stowed in their luggage. You can’t be too careful with Joe in office.
Does anyone believe the Ark of the Covenant is here.
TCEE: Have people or other animals been in the Americas longer, BC ?
Wolves and dogs were here first or not.
No one can question the bonds formed between dogs and humans. Biden’s dog broke ole Joe’s foot, what a shame. He should be careful on Air Force One’s steps.
We sure hope this incident doesn’t foretell of crimes against the rich, famous, and politicians. With Trump out of office it frees up 100 agents ( from making-up evidence ) to investigate state crimes.
We know Joe supports men participating in women’s sports and shower facilities. Does he sniff the hair of men ? Does the White House have 9 different restrooms for the different genders ?

I ran across this observation while I was surfing the web this morning. It is worth thinking about.
Vivek Ramaswamy (I don’t know anything about this guy, but he certainly makes a brilliant observation) challenged the readers to:
“Name one time in human history when the group fighting to ban books and censor free speech were the good guys.”
He indicated that he would wait for replies. Undoubtedly he is still waiting because it’s never happened.
Indeed, stifling speech and demonizing those who disagree with you is not the way societies are supposed to work. I seem to recall that people who are elected to political positions are required take an oath to swear to uphold and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, but now the domestic enemies of the Constitution, and the country, have taken over the government.
The left is at war with the rest of the country. We need to do everything possible to oppose their outrageous agenda. Push back with vigor. We want our country back. What happened in Venezuela is starting to happen here. Our freedoms are in grave peril.
The price of liberty is eternal vigilance.
