E Pluribus Unum

E Pluribus Unum

Election News, History, Media
Much talk has occurred over the last few months here about racial tension in America. I'm sure you're already rolling your eyes and thinking, why is Thornton bringing this up again? Simple. Because it matters. The fact is gang, we've all been played and not just by the DNC but everyone in our government looking to to protect the globalist agenda - this includes the Media. We see E Pluribus Unum everywhere in America's symbology. It's even on the United States Seal. What does it mean? Forensically and literal translation from Latin, it means, 'one out of many.' However, what does it really mean to Americans? You all may remember a few years back, there was a man name Andrew Breitbart, who died mysteriously one evening while walking after dinner in Beverly Hills, California. On M...

History 101: 1942 – It Wasn’t Just About WWII

History, Issues
1942 is a pivotal year in our Constitution's history... as it was  the year when the Supreme Court of the United States overstepped the Constitution to begin the dismantling our individual rights and Federalize Americans' lives. The case was Wickard v. Filburn. Not many people hear too much about it as it lacks the sensationalism as Roe v. Wade or Brown v. the Board of Education. However, it's impact on our country and us is too staggering to ignore. As explained in Mark Levin's, Liberty & Tyranny, the basic premise in this case was the SCOTUS ruled that a farmer growing wheat on his own land and for his own use was still subject to federal production limits, even though none of his wheat was sold to any other people or crossed state lines. The reasoning was "withholding h

PM Margaret Thatcher Had It Right…

With all this talk about Socialism now days, it seems that many don't truly understand the premise of the idea. Often, it's mistaken as Marxism or Communism; however, it's the bedrock of the two while the latter becomes more bent on Fascism and easier to exploit by the community leaders. In her argument with Parliament, she lays out very clearly what the main objectives are within the Socialism Ideology succinctly. Thus, she shines a bright light on a often misunderstood subject. These brief exchanges took place during Margaret Thatcher's last speech in the House of Commons on 22 November 1990.
Reagan Showed Grace Under Fire

Reagan Showed Grace Under Fire

History, Inspiring Moments, Presidential
Back in 1976, Ronald Reagan had gone through a very heated primary with President Gerald Ford. Instead of doing what Ted Cruz (R-TX) did last night by failing to put his country before his personal slights, then candidate Reagan supported his party without a glimmer of doubt. As you will see in his speech at the 1976 RNC Convention, Reagan showed the country and the world, he was a better person than all the scuffle. He demonstrated to us why he was worthy of his landslide just a mere four years later after one term of Democrat President, Jimmy Carter. It's a shame when politicians let their emotions get the better of them. Grudges have no place in our arenas when so much is at stake! It's also sad to see Cruz supporters still beating their tired drums, when it's over. Some have cla...
Independence?

Independence?

By Thornton Crowe As published on Salisbury News On Independence Day weekend, I thought about what this holiday's remembrance is really all about and why it's meaning now is more pertinent than ever before in most our lives. For those who embrace this election's importance, this is a somber holiday - not just an excuse for a three-day weekend. Our founding fathers had great ideas. They were educated men consisting of landowners, lawyers, inventors, philosophers and business owners, who carefully thought out the way to govern the new nation. They had a combined focus and goal to eradicated themselves from the Crown and launch a most extraordinary experiment. The United States of America. The two main ideas became apparent in their planning. A) To guarantee inalienable rights ...
Clinton: Really the First Female to Run for President?

Clinton: Really the First Female to Run for President?

Election News, History
By Thornton Crowe Maybe in an alter-universe, but... One name not found anywhere in the Common Core agenda is Victoria Woodhull. Hence, why Ms. Clinton was able to pontificate about being the first female to be a presidential nominee? Once again, Ms. Clinton lied. It's a too bad she didn't take US History while she was studying to perform the perfect subterfuge to con Americans. A speech recognizing Ms. Woodhull and how she plans on carrying her predecessor's great history into the 21st century would have much more stirring than screaming about how she owned the new ceiling when she didn't. In 1872, Ms. Woodhull ran in the presidential election on the Equal Rights ticket. She didn't get any electoral votes; however, her popular vote has been long disputed. Funny, that many don'...

Jim Crow – Alive & Well in the RNC & DNC!

Election News, History, Issues, Trump News
By Thornton Crowe A few weeks back, I published a commentary discussing Jim Crow and Hillary Clinton's misuse of the term when speaking to her rallies about states wanting to implement Voter ID during elections. While obviously, she was using a sore spot in America's history to her own end by duplicitous means, her misuse can hardly take away the real Jim Crow being exercised by the Republican National Committee's state chapters such as Colorado, Indiana and Wyoming.  This is designed to enforce the will of the establishment rather than the will of the people. Last Saturday, 1.1 Million voters were completely cut out of the primary process through a rule created in August 2015 after Trump's popularity overcame the typical punchline and into a realm of reality. The RNC, headed by Rei
Hillary Clinton’s Misunderstanding of Jim Crow

Hillary Clinton’s Misunderstanding of Jim Crow

Election News, History, Issues
By Thornton Crowe Many have heard the term, Jim Crow, especially from the South. It was an era in American History that is probably darker than the slavery as it was a completely demoralizing period for many Black Americans who suffered from its discrimination and violence. Politicians like Hillary Clinton love to continually remind voters about this deep dark past, yet it seems she lacks the true history about it. Instead, she uses it to propagate a hatred towards whites and Republicans, threatening minorities that the White Establishment will gyp them out of their right to vote. During the post-Civil War Reconstruction Era (1865-1877), many Southerners were none too happy with Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and they demonstrated their adverse reactions through a variety of ...

Rest In Peace, First Lady, Nancy Reagan

History, Presidential
By Thornton Crowe When I was in my mid-teens, the Reagans came to DC with all the pomp and circumstance. Ronald Reagan won triumphantly over one-term president Jimmy Carter, and the sights were set for him to restore the Republican party's reputation to Americans after Nixon's Watergate debauchery. As a youngster, I didn't think too much about politics in those days. I was more concerned with MTV (a new cool video network), getting a Walkman for Christmas and having the latest Flock of Seagulls cassette. I didn't see what the 'adults' saw, but he seemed like a cool guy to me. As I grew older, I found it was a comfort having President Reagan around; like the horrible afternoon when the Challenger blew up and everyone was stunned as we watched what was left of those people fall from...

GOP Candidate Most Likely Picked By Founding Fathers

Election News, History, Trump News
In the GOP primary election cycle, we have had a variety of candidates whom all have their positives and negatives. Their stances on issues vary as wildly as their personalities. However, when you study Colonial and Presidential history, you learn so much about the founding fathers of this country. Interestingly enough, Donald J. Trump is very much like those dead white guys as Common Core creators like to call them. First, he is a regular guy (albeit a Billionaire) whom has a desire to make this country great (again) and is dedicated to making the changes to push that aim forward. He didn't have to run for president and take the enormous public razzing. He's rich beyond any of our imaginations, which means, if he didn't love America, he could move anywhere in the world and live a wonde...

Many historians have conclude, based on documentation, the Civil Rights Law was another ‘forced into glory’ situation (like Lincoln) because we could not demonize other countries for lack of equality when we did not act in accordance with our own rhetoric during the Cold War. Meaning, the signing of the Civil Rights Law was a political propagandic maneuver, not a moralistic need to bring equality. Even with Civil Rights becoming law, it was not until Nixon (a Republican) who enforced it through the Supreme Court. The result was busing and school integration as well as the end of overt Jim Crow in the South. Johnson never made any gestures after the signing to actually implement the legislation; it was merely a gratuitous action. Digging deeper into historic documentation, Democrats have
