The Smithsonian Institution required staffers at the National Air and Space Museum to undergo training after a group of Catholic school students were told to remove their anti-abortion hats in order to enter the museum last month. The incident reportedly happened on Jan. 20, after the annual March for Life, an anti-abortion protest that draws hundreds of thousands of demonstrators every year

James Smithson who founded this place was an illegitimate child. He would have probably been killed before birth today.

I never really thought it would be like this. People so against babies and life. Also liberals never let the other side speak, be heard or given any respect.

The Smithsonian is a propaganda operation that needs to be sold to a private company, or closed down. As a government operation it operates contrary to American values.

I cancelled my subscription to the Smithsonian publications years ago when they refused to display an accurate representation of the Japanese aggression with the attack on Pearl Harbor just like the event merely "happened." Then with ignoring Chief Justice Clarence Thomas and other black conservatives in the African American Museum ? This youth group was not protesting and even if they thought they were HOW PEACEFUL CAN YOU GET? Wake up wokesters as you are way over the top and I'm still wondering why cancelling Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben and the Land O Lakes Indian maiden have benefited anyone?

We live in a world where the words "Rosary" and "Pro-Life" cannot be worn on a hat in a public building, but all kinds of occult words and drawings are perfectly fine - another example of the collapse of our western civilization.

I have been saying for at least three years now. No normal, American loving school should waste the kids' money and time on field trips to DC. DC and the libs that infest the city are racist towards conservative whites and Christians and look their noses down on these young hicks from the hinterlands visiting the monuments. Save your money.

About the Smithsonian Magazine; the National Geographic is also woke to the max. My daughter bought me a year’s subscription once, for my birthday. I appreciated her kind gesture, but the rag is unreadable. I peeked into at least three issues. The others I left unopened. I didn’t throw any away because she comes and visit me sometimes, and I respect her feelings for giving me something. She is a rare liberal child who still loves her Daddy, in spite of his “extreme right-wing views.”

I started visiting Air and Space in the middle 1960s when it was nothing but literally a Quonset hut on the mall with a couple of aircraft inside, some artifacts inside and a few missiles outside of the building. Most memorable to this teen was the Wright brothers' wind tunnel with an excellent explanatory display. It has been a lifelong favorite and several artifacts or awards were won or created by personal friends or family members. This leftist garbage is just WRONG. Let's hope it never happens again. It is irritating enough that I can't keep my pocket knife in my pocket when visiting...."weapons" ya know. Eye roll.

The public is gradually learning how, despite repeated denials and non-answers, top government officials were well aware of the potential for violence on January 6, 2021. A chief investigator on the January 6 select committee told NBC News last week that law enforcement was privy to a trove of intelligence indicating problems could arise during the election certification process but, for some unexplained reason, chose to ignore the warning signs. “The Intel in advance was pretty specific, and it was enough in our view for law enforcement to have done a better job operationalizing a secure perimeter.”

Poor little Johnny. He would have become a lifelong reader, scaling the heights of Shakespeare and Dostoyevsky. But no. His local school library didn’t have any more graphic novels or manga for him to read. So he lost interest in the printed word. Now he bags groceries for a living. Such a story might sound patently ridiculous, but that’s exactly what the leftist corporate media want you to think about recent changes in our nation’s libraries. “Schools are struggling to keep their shelves stocked as oversight by parents and school boards intensifies,” says a recent front-page article in The Washington Post.

There is a certain demographic that appears to be on an organized mission to show the rest of us just how immoral and backward its philosophies really are. Most notably, these ideologues salivate over unfettered abortion, even to the point when the act becomes definable as "infanticide," and they continue to push the envelope regarding "transgender" sex-change mutilations of children, even prepubescent ones. Think they can't possibly commoditize human life more? Think again — the metaphorical "hold my beer" seems appropriate.

There are two groups of Trump haters.

They’re the, “Trump said boo to the _____ (insert target group here), and I’m not going vote for him ever again” brainiacs. The second group of NeverTrumpers are the Deep Swamp critters who benefit off the U.S. Feral Gruberment’s largesse. The Corrupocrats like Nancy Pelosi, who start wars and crises and then profit off them via their military-industrial complex stock portfolios. “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

I am responding to "Ukraine and the Unlearned Lesson of History," by Jacob Fraden. published in AT 1/31/23. I’ll start with the author’s contention that Russia’s war against Napoleonic France was one of its wars “of aggression.” On June 24, 1812, Napoleon invaded Russia with an army of 650,000, approximately the 12th European county to receive the French tyrant’s military attention. Who was the aggressor here? Tsar Alexander I was a hero at the Congress of Vienna, for crushing that invasion and breaking the French chronic aggressor’s back once and for all.

On January 1, the world celebrated New Year’s Day—a holiday of self-reflection, self-renewal, and hope. In Ukraine, the focus was different. There, January 1 marks the birthday of Stepan Bandera, Ukraine’s Nazi national hero. Bandera is the founding father of Ukrainian Nazism and his birthday is a national holiday. In Ukraine, paying homage to their most famous antisemite and leading Nazi collaborator of World War II, is a very big deal. Calling All Nazis Under President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, the level of Nazi influence and control in Ukraine has been unprecedented.

Transportation Secretary and Chasten’s wife — er, husband, Pete Buttigieg, went on NBC’s Meet the Press on Feb. 5 to preview Joe Biden’s State of the Union address. During that appearance, Buttigieg claimed that Joe Biden is just so wildly successful as president that his accomplishments cannot be easily distilled — hence Biden’s low approval ratings. Yes, Mayor Pete actually said Biden is extremely unpopular because he’s too good at his job. Buttigieg rambled out a justification of the Biden administration allowing an apparent Chinese spy balloon to cross the U.S. before shooting it down over the ocean (where, quite conveniently, no one can pick up tell-tale debris as enlightening evidence).

The military did not detect previous flights of Chinese spy balloons over the U.S. that took place during the Trump administration, a top general said Monday, due to a "gap" in the Defense Department's ability to track certain airborne objects. Gen. Glen VanHerck, head of North American Aerospace Defense Command, cited the issue as the reason that at least three spy balloon flights were not briefed to senior Trump officials at the time. "So those balloons, so every day as a NORAD commander it's my responsibility to detect threats to North America," he told reporters at the Pentagon. "I will tell you that we did not detect those threats.

From his lofty height, he engaged with every thorny problem with an equanimity that drew a placid sagacity from an ocean of experience, and confidence. After all, Rush was “documented almost always right 99.7% of the time.” He was a compass that always pointed the precise bearing to truth. He was the constitutionalists’ loadstar.

Georges Bergès, who has been overseeing the sale of Biden's paintings, said the 53-year-old would 'become one of the most consequential artists in this century.' His comments came as the New York Post pressed him on whether he would comply with requests from the House Oversight Committee, which asked to see the names of individuals who purchased Biden's artwork and the price they paid for it.
