William Bradford’s Rejection of Communist-Like Living


, , ,



Independent Sentinel by S. Noble

“The LORD is the help of my life” ~ William Bradford This is the real story of the first Thanksgiving and the man who documented the arrival and life of the Pilgrims in Plymouth colony.

Squanto was taught brought back to England and taught English by the British as a young boy so he could act as a guide. He was enslaved twice and bought by Franciscans who converted him to Catholicism. He ended up back in his village in America to find they had all died from disease. It was the exact spot where William Bradford landed.

Squanto, not Indians per se, taught the Pilgrims how to fish and hunt.

Bradford’s colony was originally a commune of sorts and like all communist communes, it didn’t work. People became lazy, began to steal and some starved. Only 51 survived the first winter.

Bradford decided to change the living arrangements. He gave families their own land[…]

Obama’s intel scandal

Hot Air by Stephen Hayes

Analysts on the CENTCOM/DIA team were told they could not include information from the bin Laden documents in finished intelligence products. As word of the contents of the documents began to circulate informally in intelligence circles, one official on the team was summoned to Washington and ordered to quit analyzing the documents. To date, only a fraction of the document collection has been fully exploited, and fewer than 150 of the documents have been declassified and released.

This is a scandal. And those involved believe that it reaches into the White House.
“We were certainly blocked from seeing all the documents, and we were given limited time and resources to exploit the ones we had…

The Obama administration from Barack down are all pathological liars. Seven going on eight years of lies is more than enough.

Thanksgiving: Giving Thanks to God

thanksgiving blessing


The New American by

The impiety of many of our country’s present leaders makes it easy to forget that the United States was once governed by devout men who acknowledged the one true God and their debt to Him in everything. These statesmen were courageously unafraid to give public thanks to God. It is refreshingly edifying to review the role our founders played in establishing Thanksgiving Day.

The holiday we celebrate now has its roots in Massachusetts Governor William Bradford’s proclamation of the first Thanksgiving Day on November 29, 1623. He ordered a public ceremony to “render thanksgiving to ye Almighty God for all His blessings.” However, that was not the first thanksgiving on our nation’s soil. Long before, on September 8, 1565, Spanish explorers celebrated Mass in gratitude for their safe arrival at what is now St. Augustine, Florida….

Pequot Indian War - Revisionist Thanksgiving


Providence Foundation by Stephen McDowell

One great factor in the secularization and decline of America is the teaching of revisionist history in our schools. As an example of this, a friend recently wrote me that two American Indian history teachers at Minnesota State University told him that Thanksgiving was the celebration of the massacred 600 Pequot Indians in colonial New England.

Wanting to learn more of why they thought this, my friend found an article that seemed to detail their beliefs, in which is stated:

Ironically, the first official “Day of Thanksgiving” was proclaimed in 1637 by Massachusetts Governor John Winthrop. He did so to celebrate the safe return of English colony men from Mystic, Connecticut. They massacred 600 Pequots that had laid down their weapons and accepted Christianity. They were rewarded with a vicious and cowardly slaughter by their new “brothers in Christ.”[1]

Unfortunately, too many Americans today would readily believe this almost totally false statement. Having read much about these early settlers, and knowing the lies and half-truths that are presented ashistory today, I was able to point out why this statement is wrong […]

Missouri Education Watchdog by Anne Gassel

2015 was not a good year for student data privacy. Massive exposure on three levels has shown that no one is truly capable of protecting the data they gather on American students.

Federal Student Data At Serious Risk

At a House hearing on Oversight and Government Reform held on 11-17-15, Inspector General Kathleen Tighe testified that the US Department of Education’s “data security” system is riddled with vulnerabilities. The problems encompass both lax controls over the people allowed access to sensitive data, as well as outdated technology and inadequate security to prevent unauthorized access….

To The Next Level – Everyone Is A Terrorist App

The possibility for abuse staggers the mind!

Last night at the grocery store the man waiting to pay (behind me) was way over the line suspicious with his inquiries of my Thanksgiving plans! Why – just the amount he was revealing of his own upcoming turkey day was more than any stranger needed to know – and the woman behind him holding a ten pound bag of sugar – he offered her a cup from his own stash! Pervert? Stalker? Potential kidnapper? Terrorist for sure as there are plenty in who he would instill fear!
Or – hey – how about blog post comments? A gold mine!

Gotta tell you – there is a real conflict invading my psyche on this day meant to give thanks so I shall just do the “happy” part?

Happy Thanksgiving Curtis[…]


Obama has been working on this every since the Go Fishy or Get Fishy White House site failed. In the meantime, the sheeple continue to slumber. It’s just a matter of time before their slumber becomes a nightmare.

ISIS-like nut job Pilgrims

Independent Sentinel by S. Noble

The leftists at the so-called mainstream news want you to know that Thanksgiving is a time for religious nutters, Bible Thumpers, and Pilgrims who were whack jobs just like ISIS. Thank WaPo for that comparison.


You might say, if you wanted to be critical, they’re religious nutters who won’t settle for anything except the most literal reading of the Bible, they want to transform a nation-state into something that resembles what they take to be a godly kingdom,” British historian Pauline Croft tells us. Religious scholar Susan Hardman Moore puts it in rather moderate, less judgmental terms: “They were transient citizens of the world, and ultimately citizens of heaven. And they were on a journey towards purity, that’s what they sought.”

Despite their theological extremism, oddball reputations and the logistical obstacles to success, the Pilgrims managed to plant themselves in America. It may not be comforting to see even the broad parallels between the Pilgrims and the extremists of the Islamic State (both groups shared a sense that the apocalypse was — in the form of the Thirty Years’ War — or is nigh), but it’s true that some small, determined religious movements do actually change the world […]

Democrats rise in opposition to Obama’s climate change agenda

Washington Examiner by John Siciliano

Hundreds of Democrats from 32 states are aligning against the centerpiece of President Obama’s climate change agenda, the Clean Power Plan, which they say will cause unnecessary economic harm from increased reliance on renewable energy.

“As Democrats committed to a prosperous America and a healthy environment, we believe the United States has a unique opportunity to lead the world in addressing the global climate challenge, and yet do so, as we must, without unduly burdening the American economy or the American people,” the Democratic coalition called CoalBlue said in a letter sent Tuesday to Obama….

Truth Revolt by Sarah Fisher

Indiana Governor Mike Pence is the target of a lawsuit that challenges his authority to block Syrian refugees from being resettled in Indiana.

The suit was filed Monday night and claims that Pence violated the Equal Protection Clause by accepting refugees from other countries but not Syrian refugees. The litigation follows Pence and other governors suspending the resettlement in wake of the terror attacks in Paris.

The complaint was filed Monday night in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana by the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana on behalf of Exodus Refugee Immigration, an Indianapolis nonprofit…

Obama Has Just Begun



BE FUNKY Obama has just begun image compressed


With 421 more days to go before Barack Obama spends his last night in the White House, Americans are wondering how much more damage will the malignant narcissist do before he departments 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

National Review by Victor David Hanson

How much damage can he do in his last year in office?

…Obama certainly has doubled down going into his last year, most recently insisting on letting in more refugees from the Middle East, at a time when the children of Middle Eastern immigrants and contemporary migrants are terrorizing Europe. What remaining unpopular executive acts might anger his opponents the most? Close down Guantanamo, let thousands more refugees into the United States, free thousands more felons, snub another ally, flatter another enemy, weigh in on another interracial melodrama, extend amnesty to another million illegal aliens, make global warming laws by fiat, expand Obamacare, unilaterally impose gun control? In lieu of achievement, is the Obama theory to become relevant or noteworthy by offending the public and goading political enemies?
An Obama press conference is now a summation of all his old damn-you clichés — the fantasy strawman arguments…

Obama’s Upcoming Trillion Dollar Insurance Company Bailout Is Circling the Drain

BEFUNKY Barack Obama bailing out insurance companies


Independent Sentinel by S. Noble

Barack Obama couldn’t even set up a website, much less a healthcare plan that works. Obamacare is dependent on taxpayer dollars being constantly funneled into it and Medicaid, the “free” healthcare is responsible for almost the entire increase in healthcare enrollment. Most of the Obamacare enrollees are receiving subsidies. One of the fatal flaws in the program that has been overlooked is that of the “risk corridor” but it’s moving front-and-center now as Obama tries to use it to bail out insurance companies.

Insurance companies can’t give out all the services he demanded they give and stay solvent without raising the premiums astronomically, so Obama’s plan was to use the risk corridor provision in the bill to bail out insurance companies when they inevitably decide to pull out of Obamacare.

Marco Rubio has temporarily stopped it and accelerated the inevitable collapse of Obamacare, but I wouldn’t get too excited yet […]
