From Thomas Jefferson's own family,

Original Article

A direct descendant of Thomas Jefferson has called for the memorial to the third president to be removed from Washington, D.C. Writing in the New York Times Monday morning, Lucian K. Truscott IV says his ancestor’s former estate at Monticello is enough of a tribute and that the Jefferson Memorial, located next to the Tidal Basin in the nation’s capital, should be replaced with a statue honoring the abolitionist hero Harriet Tubman. “The memorial is a shrine to a man who during his lifetime owned more than 600 slaves and had at least six children with one of them, Sally


Lucian K. Truscott the IV can kiss my grits. He doesn't own the legacy of his distant ancestor.

Son of famous WWII general who became an extreme leftist and Marxist apologist. No surprise here. And of course from Yahoo a misleading headline, suggesting that the "family" of Jefferson descendants are against him.

By that same logic, Mount Vernon and Hyde Park are sufficient memorials to the Presidents who resided there, so let's knock down the Washington and FDR Monuments in DC and replace them with the left's politically correct heroes of the moment. There really is no limit to the left's lunacy.

Lucien Truscott was one of our greatest generals in World War II. His grandson is a wimp, traitor, coward, and isn't fit to kiss the bottom of his grandfather's combat boot. His grandfather would be disgusted with his grandson.

The poor idiot decendant of Jefferson doesn’t even realize that Jefferson owned slaves because it was the law because of the amount of land he owned in Virginia. It was through the writings of the Declaration of Independence and followed up in the Constitution that would allow the mechanism to eventually abolish slavery. This guy needs to go study up on his inheritance before sounding off.

Truscott IV is actually the grandson of the famous WWII general who commanded the 3d Infantry Division and then Fifth Army. Truscott IV is a real piece of work. Look up his bio. Among other things he filed a court case to do away with mandatory chapel at the academy while he was there. He later resigned his commission.

Didn't one of the Truscotts write a novel about the Long Gray Line? Maybe it was this one, got mixed up with the Stephen King crowd, and now he's a Commie. Great.

I call BS on this dimwit, He is the Grandson of the WWll general and the son of my CO at MInot AFB North Dakota. His Dad was a Outstanding Officer and one of the best pilots I ever flew with. This individual disgraces two outstanding officers and himself. For the record, Thomas Jefferson was never know to have sex with the slaves, same cannot be said for his nephew who spent much time there.

I am a descendant of the Tutors on both sides of my family. When I visited London, I was not invited to handle the crown jewels, and no one in England cares what I think of Prince Charles. If tried to pull a statue of Henry VIII down I'd be forcibly removed.

I remember when they traced the DNA of these "descendants" of Thomas Jefferson and concluded that they were, slightly, more likely descended from Thomas Jefferson's brother or nephew. The conclusion was that Sally Hemings' children were probably not Thomas Jefferson's children.

Who ended better off? Those left in Africa, or those brought to America? The country ended slavery 89 years after founding. Most of the plantation owners were absentee owners residing in Britain or Europe. Half the country never allowed slavery. Oddly, the parts of the country that never allowed slavery have more racial issues that anywhere else. The country is now 244 years old. Jefferson made the Louisiana Purchase, and sent Lewis & Clark to the Pacific creating our great country.

From what I understand, it is scientifically impossible, even at this time, to determine whether or not descendants of Hemings are directly descended from Thomas (even if his genetic material still exists it is too old and decayed to contain much information) but can demonstrate through current Jefferson family descendant DNA that they are descended from Jefferson or a close relative of his. From that information our children are being taught that Jefferson, who lived in the same area as his brother and who had no male children who lived beyond childhood, was a rapist. Lucien Truscutt IV is separated from Jefferson by six generations which gives him 1.56 per cent relation to Jefferson. Whatever children Truscutt has are even more attenuated; so distant as to not be considered genetically related at all by geneticists.

When I think of Jefferson, this is what comes to mind... John F. Kennedy's Remarks at a Dinner Honoring Nobel Prize Winners of the Western Hemisphere April 29, 1962 - “I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.” If you’ve ever been to Monticello, you know that Jefferson was more than an intellect. He was an amazing designer, architect and botanist, among other things. He is one of my hero’s.

If they tear down the statue today, then one day they're going to want to tear down Monticello. You can't stop with one and not the other. It's a slow creep to erase all of history. I wonder what they did with the text books we grew up with in the 1960s? They have to be burned so that future generations can't read "real" history.

Today we mourn, but with confidence that future generations will remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg as we knew her — a tireless and resolute champion of justice.” The development will give President Trump the opportunity to name her replacement, and Senate Republicans have promised to try to fill the vacancy even in the waning days of his first term.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the demure firebrand who in her 80s became a legal, cultural, and feminist icon has died. The Supreme Court announced her death, saying the cause was complications from cancer. Architect of the legal fight for women's rights in the 1970s, Ginsburg subsequently served 27 years on the nation's highest court, becoming its most prominent member. Her death will inevitably set in motion what promises to be a nasty and tumultuous political battle over who will succeed her, and it thrusts the Supreme Court vacancy into the spotlight of the presidential campaign.
