Strange Inheritance: Quarter-million ancient
arrowheads coveted by John Wayne

Fox Business, by Krysia Lenzo

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/18/2018 9:42:56 PM

It’s a collection unlikely to be duplicated: nearly 250,000 ancient Native American arrowheads, some as old as 12,000 years. North Carolina couple Moon and Irene Mullins amassed the relics over a half-century, and Moon willed it to his friend and caregiver Jerry Williams. The collection is featured on the FOX Business Network series, “Strange Inheritance with Jamie Colby Opens a New Window. .” The episode premieres Monday, Jan. 22, at 9 p.m. ET. “The Mullins Collection surpasses anything I’ve seen in private hands,” says Joe Candillo, Native American historian and a member of the Pascua Yaqui tribe. “It’s breathtaking.

I worked with a man in Roswell, New Mexico who had an arrowhead collection of tens of thousands of specimens. He asked me to help him mount them and organize them. I would have been glad to if I had had ten years spare time to do it. He had some spear points, pure white, that were more than 14" long. Some of his tiny points were less than an inch and absolutely perfect in every detail. It was fascinating. I would love to go to this museum someday.

PS: I used to fly my small plane over that desert and all along the Pecos river and tribs, just looking at the ground for old ranches. I loved exploring them. And all over the landscape you can see these little circles of stone if you are low enough, and these, I was told by my friend, are the antelope hides the native Americans made to hunt antelope. And if you find one of these sites (which on the ground are practically invisible), you will find hundreds of arrowheads all around them. they were used by tribe hunters for thousands of years. the antelope are still there and incredibly beautiful. I´ve had them walk right up to the window of my truck- just sit still, they will come right up to you. They are notoriously curious animals, which made them easy prey for the bow and arrow hunters.

Neat collection, I have a few I have found over the years but now you can´t even pick up an arrowhead on any public land which is pretty much ALL of the country west of KS.

*Putting on my Pedantic Archaeologist’s Hat now*

The PROPER and CORRECT term is POINT. They come in various sizes but the most common, prolific and well known are DART points. Typically they are attached by sinew and glue to a lng shaft and thrown either by hand or an atl-atl. Yes there are points tiny enough to be attached to a thin stick and shot from a bow. Theyre a bit more rare than darts.

Just a side note that I wanted to share because its interesting. As a former archaeologist, collecting stone tools is contoversial outside the scientific method of excavation. Stone points are often diagnostic to a site and removing them from a location reduces their “value”. often times someone will say to me “hey so and so has arry heads you should go talk to them” and I have to reply “why should I do that now? The site is destroyed and a box of stone points tells me nothing about the place where they were found.”

Yes I know that annoys the hell outta people but I respect scientific study. I was told often by my profs that the only thing separating the archaeologist from a money grubbing pot hunter was the Scoentific Method. Thats what archaeologu IS.

Democrat Chuck Schumer Now Completely
Agrees With President Trump--America First!
Daily Wire, by Joseph Curl    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 5/14/2018 11:01:30     Post Reply
Sen. Chuck Schumer is a true Never Trumper. He opposes every single thing President Trump tries to do, and he´ll do anything he has to do to thwart Trump´s agenda -- anything. In January, Schumer gave his word to provide $25 billion to Trump to fund new border security measures -- as long as Trump agreed to permanent legal protections for illegal aliens. Then, he broke his word and withdrew the offer. Schumer has bashed Trump for his overtures to denuclearize the Korean peninsula -- even though the president is on the brink of ending the Korean War -- and

Editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard Bill Kristol said he was glad White House officials are leaking sensitive information to the press because it gives people a better idea of who is working for the president. Kristol was debating American Conservative Union Chair Matt Schlapp, who condemned the leaks as being harmful to the country and President Donald Trump’s agenda. “Can you imagine … if you went into a staff meeting and you were trying to determine what you were going to talk about that day,” Schlapp told CNN’s “New Day” co-host Chris Cuomo. “And everybody has ideas and they bounce

Green Beret livestreams himself being

Washington Examiner, by Katelyn Caralle    Original Article

Green Beret and former UFC fighter Tim Kennedy livestreamed a video of himself Saturday voluntarily being waterboarded by his friends to illustrate that the practice could not be compared to real torture tactics. The more than 40-minute-long video, Kennedy said, was meant to show support for President Trump’s nomination of Gina Haspel for CIA director. (Video) Many Democrats and some Republicans in the Senate oppose Haspel because she oversaw in 2002 a CIA black site that tortured terror suspects. However, Haspel´s confirmation seems likely as at least two Democrats who are vulnerable in the 2018

The Democrats are having a major case of the sadz, and it’s hilarious. Their generic lead in the midterms ballot has evaporated. After the Iran and North Korea triumphs, Obama’s legacy is just a smoking ruin of broken dreams and corrected failures. And Stormy Daniels’s cheesy reign on CNMSNBC has morphed into a rain of singles from leering weirdos at creepy places with names like “The Treasure Chest” and “Reliable Sources.” So what do the liberals do when they are losing the all the big fights? They try to score points by taking some conservative scalps, which should thrill Elizabeth

California Bill Seeks to Replace Washington

A Democrat California assemblyman introduced a bill seeking to make “May Day,” or International Workers Day, a state holiday that would replace President George Washington’s or President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Assemblyman Miguel Santiago’s (D-Los Angeles) legislation calls for consolidating the two presidents’ birthdays to be observed on the third Monday in February as a single “President’s Day” holiday, but it also calls for the state to observe May 1 as “International Workers Day.” International Workers Day, also known as “May Day,” had been observed in countries under Communism for decades and was

President Trump is currently on a roll, fulfilling one campaign promise after another, turning the economy around and making significant advances on the international stage regarding North Korea, Israel and Iran. But you would never know it if you only followed the mainstream media.While Trump was busy bringing down the unemployment rate to record lows, CNN was focusing on the credibility of a prostitute who allegedly accepted hush money so she wouldn´t speak to the media. As Trump prepared to enter a meeting with North Korea after the successful release of three hostages, CNN was busy covering Mueller´s

Saturday Night Live has taken a rare break from mocking President Donald Trump, with one segment even admitting it´s been a good week for the administration. Unusually, both guest host Amy Schumer´s monologue and the episode´s cold open avoided politics - a rarity in the Trump era, in which Alec Baldwin typically appears to impersonate the president. The Weekend Update segment devoted only three minutes to politics, and the episode´s only other jab at Trump was a throwaway line during a parody of The Handmaid´s Tale. The episode opened with several of the cast members´ mothers joining them on the

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” former Bush senior advisor Karl Rove said it was “reprehensible” to say Gina Haspel is morally unfit to be the CIA director because of her involvement in enhanced interrogation after 9/11. Rove said, “I think it’s reprehensible if people say she’s morally unfit because she was following a program that was carefully crafted by the lawyers and approved as being within our international obligations and the statutes of the United States. It has now been ruled by an act of Congress to no longer be applicable, no longer be a tool to

Sunday on MSNBC’s “Live With Alex Witt,” Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) called President Donald Trump a “600-pound, orange elephant.” When asked about using impeachment as issue in the 2018 midterm elections, Cohen said, “Nancy Pelosi is a very outstanding politician and official. I have great respect for her. I agree with her it’s not going to happen with the Republican majority. Republicans have turned blindly against what is obviously violations of the Emoluments Clause, what could be proven and put out by Mueller as obstruction of justice and other violations that could lead to impeachment.

The top Democrat on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence acknowledged in a recent interview that contacts between Trump campaign associates and Russians could be “a set of coincidences” rather than collusion. “I’m reserving my final judgement until we’ve seen all the witnesses we need to see, and we’ve gotten all the facts. So I’m going to hold off,” Virginia Sen.

White House leakers used a raft of excuses Sunday to justify sharing sensitive Trump administration information with reporters, reasons ranging from a way to settle personal scores to dealing with a confrontational work environment within the West Wing. "The most common substantive leaks are the result of someone losing an internal policy debate," a senior administration official told Axios. "By leaking the decision, the loser gets one last chance to kill it with blowback from the public, Congress, or even the President." The aide then likened working in the White House to "kind of like being in a never-ending ´Mexican

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Shortly after President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal last Tuesday, an adviser to a top Iranian official retaliated by dropping a bombshell threat. The threat concerned the president’s plan to reimpose sanctions on Iran: An adviser to H.J.Ansari Zarif, the deputy for parliamentary and Iranian affairs within Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, specifically threatened to expose every corrupt official who accepted bribes to make the Iran deal happen three years ago. “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they

Sen. Lindsey Graham blasted the ´terrible joke´ a White House aide told about cancer-stricken John McCain and said if his own aide made such an error he would apologize. Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark. Asked if he was satisfied with the White House response, Graham, a South Carolina Republican, responded: ´No, not really.´ He called Kelly Sadler´s reported joke about McCain´s opposition to Trump CIA

Washington - Senate candidate Mitt Romney of Utah said Sunday a prominent Baptist minister shouldn’t be giving the prayer that opens the US Embassy in Jerusalem because he’s a “religious bigot.” In a tweet, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee criticized Dallas minister Robert Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam. The Jerusalem Open House on Monday also lambasted Jeffress’s participation, saying he had in the past called gay rights promoters “pedophilia activists” and said homosexuality was a “perversion.” Jeffress, a Southern Baptist who vigorously

Ret. Admiral Michael Mullen appeared on Fox News Sunday, and was asked by host Chris Wallace whether Gina Haspel‘s involvement in enhanced interrogation disqualifies her from the job of CIA Director.

A profane tirade during a parent-teacher conference this week at a Dallas elementary school led to a teacher being injured and a woman facing assault charges. The alleged attack happened Tuesday at John Neely Bryan Elementary School in east Oak Cliff. A teacher reported that a woman accused her of "pinching her nephew" and assaulted her during an 11 a.m. parent-teacher conference, according to the arrest warrant. Lakietha Lashell Lawrence, 27, was arrested by Dallas school district police officers on charges of assaulting a public servant. She was taken to the Dallas County Jail.

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

After months of swaggering hesitation, President Trump finally announced the United States’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal with Iran, to which Britain, France, Russia, China, Germany and the European Union are also parties. This action tramples on European leaders, who urged Mr. Trump to exercise restraint in the interest of international security and multilateralism. Federica Mogherini, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, reacted to Mr. Trump’s announcement with a sharp statement. The European Union and the rest of the international community, she said, would “preserve this nuclear deal.” The question is how. Notwithstanding an abundance of

Building casinos in Atlantic City, N.J., brought Trump into similarly genteel circles. Trump’s hero was Roy Cohn, who unfortunately was born too late to serve the emperor Caligula.

From its start, the Trump administration has been plagued by charges of “chaos.” From the revolving door of senior staffers — including two secretaries of state, three national security advisers and two chiefs of staff — to the president’s brash and sometimes boorish personal style, to his politically incorrect taunt-tweeting, Donald Trump has refused to conform to his political opponents’ conventional notions of what constitutes an effective White House operation.

Donald Trump is easily the most psychoanalyzed president of modern times. His decision-making style and behavior have been hotly debated by journalists, voters, politicians, world leaders and pundits who have bestowed upon him any number of fanciful, grave-sounding mental conditions, calling him, among other things, a narcissist, a sociopath, a psychopath and a paranoiac. Trump has said he distrusts mental health professionals, so we don’t have access to a formal assessment of his psychology. But colloquially speaking, perhaps the best explanation for the president’s behavior (snip) They are quick to respond to threats and to
