Flying



Is This Progress?


The Dallas Independent School District continued its socialist march towards equality by adding schools named after three of America’s Founding Fathers to the list of schools those on the Left want re-named.

They already recommended renaming four schools named after Confederate generals, including Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. The district is conducting additional research on whether to rename at least 20 other schools named after historical figures. The list of schools, posted by DISD board member Dustin Marshall on Facebook Saturday night, includes schools named after Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison.

DISD Board Member Dustin Marshall
“I will not support a name change for Franklin since Benjamin Franklin clearly had many accomplishments that form the basis for why the school was named after him. I don’t believe this school was named after Franklin to send a signal of oppression and control,” Marshall wrote. (Benjamin Franklin Middle School is the only school on the list that falls within Marshall’s district.) Mr. Marshall's phone number is (214) 435-9031.

The district is exploring whether to rename the schools on the list because of their namesake’s ties to slavery or the Confederacy, the Dallas Morning News reported.

The Dallas City Council recently voted to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee located in Dallas Lee Park (Name change for the park as well?). The statue came down on Thursday at a cost of approximately $450,000.

President Trump questioned last month whether the removing of statues of Lee and other Confederate figures would lead to the removal of tributes to slave-owning Founding Fathers like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

“So will George Washington now lose his status?” Trump asked. “Are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson?”

The Thought Police are really out of control. Nothing good will come out of this.

Iconography


Your team is pretty important to you, right? Like, you gave up Sunday church because you were missing the first quarter of the early game. That sort of devotion deserves a plaque or something. And here it is. At nearly two feet tall, these faux stained-glass NFL wall boxes are backlit and guaranteed to brighten any room. It'll also display your love for your favorite team. See that frame holding the glass? That's made from real compressed wood chips and shavings. Think about what it would look like on your wall on game day with friends and family gathered round a bowl of queso and chips. For four easy installment payments of $44.99 each, it can be yours. Well, it could have been if I had not lost the link. The question is, is it art or something else altogether?

OU Bias Response


Think we have free speech in America? Think again. The University of Oklahoma has become the latest institution to create a bias response team, a move that comes roughly seven months after the school launched a bias complaint hotline.

The new team is expected to evaluate perceived incidents of bias reported to the public university’s hotline, a “24/7/365 multilingual” complaint repository that offers a “safe place” for students to voice concerns over issues such as microaggressions or bullying. The hotline costs $15,000 a year to maintain.

The University of Oklahoma’s new bias response team was first reported by the OU Daily earlier this month and its existence was confirmed by campus spokesman Matt Epting in an email to The College Fix.

The team “will deal with incidents such as classroom insensitivity, harmful vandalism on campus, hostile treatment, slurs, verbal and physical harassment and more,” the OU Daily reports.

Epting told The Fix that the team will consist of faculty and staff and “offenders” will not be contacted.

“The Bias Response Team reviews instances of bias that immediately affect the university environment at large and, therefore, does not contact those identified as offenders,” he stated, adding the team has no punitive powers.

Nevertheless, certain complaints may be directed to other divisions for further action.

“In the case that an individual is identified as being in violation of institutional equal opportunity policies, the University Equal Opportunity Officer is responsible for reaching out to that individual,” Epting said.

In March 2016, when the hotline was first announced, University of Oklahoma Vice President for University Community Jabar Shumate said in a prepared statement that it would play “a critical role in our strategy to effectively respond to incidents of bias.”

The hotline, run by the education technology company Greenwood Hall, is described in its contract with the university as a “safe place” for students, employees and other members of a campus community to report bias incidents and other problems — such as bullying, hazing, violence, discrimination and assault — and obtain referrals to resources.

Some students had clamored for the university to create the bias response team, using in the fall of 2016 the hashtag campaign #yOUrbad to share alleged experiences of discrimination and harassment.

But bias response teams, which are found at campuses nationwide, have raised many concerns among those who consider them a threat to free speech.

George Leef, director of research for the Martin Center for Academic Renewal, recently argued that bias response teams usually police speech that is protected under the First Amendment, and that chills free speech on campus and miseducates students about their Constitutional rights.

“Colleges have always had procedures for students to report acts of violence or intimidation, as they should,” Leef stated. “Schools have a responsibility to shield their students against physical abuse and harassment, but bias response teams seldom do that; more often, they are turned into swords used against students or faculty members who have said something that happens to offend a student.”

“… Not all bias complaints lead to action, but enough of them do to create a chilling effect on free speech. When students and faculty members know that they could face an investigation if they offend someone, the result is apt to be cautious speech or none at all. People may censor themselves once they know that an anonymous report against them will bring trouble.”

Give the OU Bias Response Hotline a call to let them know how you feel. The 24-hour Reporting Hotline can be accessed by calling 844-428-6531 or going online to www.ou.ethicspoint.com. Bobby J. Mason is the Oklahoma University Equal Opportunity Officer. His office is located on the Norman Campus at 660 Parrington Oval, Room 102, Norman, OK 73019. His office number is (405) 325-3546 and email is bjm@ou.edu.

Calomel


The cure-all medicine for the Civil War was calomel, a mercury mixture of chalk, honey and sometimes licorice. It was used to treat everything from syphilis to headaches. When one Union army doctor, William Hammond, noted that mercury was poisonous, he was dismissed as a quack and removed from his post.

Return To Xylanthia


They said they would never go back, not in a million years, but they did anyway. And oh boy, they paid dearly for that decision. Return to Xylanthia.

Hurricane Harvey


Hurricane Harvey was a monster, eh? The population of the greater Houston area is a little over two million. Of course, that doesn't count all the outlying areas, but with those numbers included, they say it's over 6.6 million. By the way, an estimated 400,000 of those are illegal immigrants. Let that sink in. 400,000.

Anyway, the Texas coast is underwater from Rockport to Beaumont and the results are that millions of people have been displaced, many to the roofs of their own homes where they awaited helicopters or flat-bottom boats to rescue them. After their rescue, they were taken to converted gymnasiums, arenas, coliseums, and participating Walmarts where their names are taken and they are given fresh water, a cot, and a squat until either the waters recede or a job and an apartment open up in Tulsa or Kansas City.

It's going to take awhile for the floodwaters to recede. Meanwhile, the natural coastal humidity is going to make things additionally uncomfortable. The heat will serve to dry things out but it will also induce mold to grow in all those soaked walls. If I were an investor, it would be a good time to look at purchasing property in and around Houston (on the cheap). That is, if you can afford the repairs.

I know people in Houston who remained and faced the storm. It was not their first hurricane and they were prepared. However, for every person who was prepared, I'll bet there were four or five others who were not.

Reports say 30,000 people are being sheltered at FEMA locations. I can't help but wonder about all the rest. I mean, they say a total of 6.8 million people were affected and the government is sheltering only a small percentage of that (.4%)?

The way government works, along with future budgeting, and all the propaganda surrounding numbers of people, I would guess all the associated costs will be inflated before this thing is completely over. In the end, the authorities will have much more power over people along the Texas coast than they had before. Like when Boston used a fake bombing to quell its population and further fund the fight against domestic terrorism, Texas will use an actual hurricane to inflate its already enormous state emergency budget.

Whether I'm right or wrong about my prognostications, there are still a lot of folks suffering because of the flooding. The highly trained staff at the North Texas Drifter hope and pray each and every one finds relief.

Putz


Don't believe the mainstream media. If you do, you're being fooled and you'll end up not knowing or believing anything except what they want you to know and believe. While you may think you are oh-so-smart and well-informed, you actually live in a fantasy world and any knowledgeable friends you have are laughing at you behind your back even though you call them all conspiracy theorists. You are a putz for being so easily deceived.

The Fight


Mayweather vs. MacGregor
Tonight marks the date of an interesting match-up between a boxer (Floyd Mayweather, Jr.) and an MMA fighter (Conor McGregor). Mayweather has a perfect record and even at forty years of age is touted as the best boxer in the world. McGregor is the well-known UFC Lightweight Champion from Ireland. Few are giving McGregor much of a chance.

It's a boxing match, so Conor is prohibited from using his martial arts arsenal. Mayweather is well-known for avoiding punishment in the ring with his ability to dodge, duck,  parry, and counter-punch. It just makes sense to pick Mayweather as the winner -- after all, it's a boxing match, not a full-on no-holds-barred fight.

So, the media has set up the bout as martial arts vs. boxing, which it is not, and yet they say it could mark the end of popular boxing if Mayweather loses and mark the epic rise of MMA as the new king of contact sports. Maybe. Yet no one is talking about the racial aspect, at least, not aloud.

If you haven't noticed, Conor is a white guy and Floyd is a black guy. There is that. It's a race mix and lots of snowflakes will pick their favorite based on the color of skin. Why? Because people identify with their own race. It's a natural tendency. Is that racism? Why yes, I believe it is but what do you suggest we do about it? You see, people congregate where they are comfortable and with those whom they are comfortable. How and why would that fact ever change?

Anyway, I doubt if we'll see many American gangstas pulling for McGregor. Unless they are Irish

One thing is for certain, though, it will be a racial spectacle even if no one will admit it. Who is the better fighter? Who is stronger, more skilled, and who wants the win more? If Mayweather loses, will BLM hold a protest? If McGregor loses, will white nationalists storm the arena and burn it down? Doubtful.

Well, the North Texas Drifter wishes good luck to both contestants and hopes to see either Conor or Floyd celebrating their victory at the Whataburger in Decatur, Texas, afterwards. Maybe we'll see you there too.

Statue Removal


The Left is re-writing history by forcing the removal of statuary related to Confederate Civil War heroes. I'm sure the absence of these statues will calm race relations in St. Louis and finally allow peace to settle over the urban killing ground we call Chicago. Perhaps even the members of Black Lives Matter and Antifa will back off their assertions that whitey needs to die.

Being a southerner with Confederate ancestors aplenty, the statues never bothered me. They hearkened to a time in the antebellum South when the intellectual might of the country resided below the Mason-Dixon line. The anti-southern folks have got it all wrong. Again. Remember, slavery was everywhere, not just in the South. Unjust federal taxation was imposed on the South prior to the Civil War -- did you know that? The economy of the South was based on slave labor, it's true; however, a re-tooling of the cultivation and collection process for cotton could have transformed and changed that system. The cotton gin had been invented and steam-driven engines had entered the picture as well. Instead of re-tooling, the North chose war.

Well, all that was a long time ago, right? and unless you read a book now and again, you wouldn't know the story is not as simple as modern-day Leftists would have you believe. You see, their problem is really about white people and capitalism and free competition, not the symbols of a southern culture long gone.

So, instead of just taking down statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, Jefferson Davis, and the like, I propose we consider bringing down some other statues. You know, while we're at it.

Check out the picture to the above right. If a cop saw a mom doing this in public with her child, she'd be arrested. What kind of a message does such a statue impart? Swing your kids around until their little arms are pulled from their bony little shoulders. OMG, the humanity. The statue needs to come down. And oh, whoever put up such a monstrosity in the first place?

Here's another that shows a businessman melding with a granite wall. He is so dedicated, he's actually begun to transfuse himself into the building where he works. That's what the statue says to me. It's depressing. It needs to come down too.

The fork statue stands outside the North Korean Culinary Institute. They used to have a statue of Kim Jong-Il sitting at a picnic table eating commie pie but had to remove it because of all the tourists taking selfies with him. The North Korean authorities felt it was undignified. The fork isn't much better. For heaven's sakes, they use chopsticks in Korea, not forks. In the interest of international relations, the giant fork needs to come down asap or else we're going to have to send the San Francisco chapter of BLM to Pyongyang.

Our next contestant is a bronze likeness of Benny Hill, British comedian and television star in the sixties. Benny is no longer relevant. Nobody under sixty knows who he is anymore. I mean, in his day, he was pretty funny, but so funny he deserves a statue? Jerry Lewis recently died and you don't see artists flocking to capture his likeness for eternity. Also, that sixties' humor was sooo racist! The statue of Benny Hill has got to go. Uh, he was a white guy too. Need I say more?

Clearly, this bust of Hillary Clinton needs to come down. It also needs to be shattered into a thousand pieces in an effort to get the image out of my brain. You think the sculptor gave old Hillary a bit of a "lift," if you know what I mean? The thing is, she lost the election. She doesn't really deserve to have a statue of herself residing in a public place. It's like celebrating losing with fake news.

Now, this next one is going to upset some people because it's everyone's favorite dancing Afro-American. That's right, it's Michael Jackson posing with his monkey. Michael really loved that monkey but I'm not sure what kind of a message it sends out to America. Based on my confusion, I say the statue needs to come down until we can ascertain exactly what message it sends.

If Michael Jackson can pose with a monkey, I suppose Walt Disney can pose with a mouse although, like the MJ statue, it doesn't seem a very hygienic proposition. We all know mice carry bubonic plague and why would we ever want to celebrate that? Walt Disney was a strange man. Wrong message. It must come down.

There are thousands of more statues in the US of Confederates and white guys and undeserving wild animals and satanic totems along state highways where travelers stop and snap photos of themselves. If we are going to transform America, shouldn't we make it a clean sweep and just get rid of anything that might become offensive in the future? Give it some thought and if you think of a statue that needs to come down, leave me a message in the comments section. Thanks.

Do They Have WiFi In The Re-Education Camps?


Good morning, everybody. I think we can all agree America is no longer the land of the free. America is presently ruled by political correctness and mob rule posing as the arbiters of social justice. Equality? Not in this lifetime.

The ignorance of the Left never fails to amaze. Here is a video of Hitler losing control over what liberal Rep Hank Johnson said about Guam.

A large part of the reason for all these spun-out social warrior types is that our educational systems have imploded because of the oversight of -- yep, you guessed it -- liberal administrators. Go and take a look at professors and instructors nationwide. You'll find an assortment of incompetent nincompoops with meaningless degrees they mostly got through attending online classes at the University of Phoenix.

Diversity does not work to unify. As diversity increases, politics becomes more tribalistic.

I read a prediction from some Leftist political pundit that said Trump will resign next year (2018). Others have predicted full on civil war if Trump is forced out. Whether he goes or stays, I predict the collapse of the country into martial law and communism. Actually, that's not much of a prediction because in many corners of the country, we're already there.

So-called conservatives refuse to fight. The neocons support expanding government oversight and power, not citizens' rights, and certainly not freedom. Speaking of freedom, we never hear from people talking about a loss of freedom anymore. Nope. Now it's all about enforcing equality of outcome and protecting the rights of fringe groups. It's the old tyranny of the minority idea.

As an indictment against those who call themselves conservatives, I am as yet unconvinced any of you have the cahones to stand up for your convictions. The Antifa folks and the BLM communists are paid to get out and stir things up and it won't stop until POTUS calls out the National Guard and puts a hit on George Soros. Afterwards, we can hold a constitutional convention and outlaw all organizations who would destroy the country. Oh, and hang the libs and the RINOs in the public square. Which reminds me, where's Barry Soetero these days? Vacationing on Pedophile Island?

Do you call yourself a Christian but find yourself agreeing with Leftist philosophy? Like, maybe you think abortion is a good idea? Or, somebody in your family turned out to be gay (maybe it was you) and what's wrong with that as long as nobody gets hurt, right? And why don't we open up the borders so that poor people from Central America and Mexico can live and work in the US? No right-thinking white American wants any of those jobs anyway.

If you are having those sort of thoughts, you've wandered off the Christian reservation and have unwittingly joined the Left. I would urge you to re-consider the depth of your faith.

It is too late to save the US, but you can always renew your own spirit; that is, if you refrain from drinking the progressive kool-aid. Mm, tastes like chicken in a blender. More taste, less filling.

Mass Hysteria

America: Land Of The Rave, Home Of The Federal Fees


America may soon be gone with the wind. The violence at Charlottesville, the dragging down of a Confederate memorial by a mob in Durham, the removal of four monuments from Baltimore (which has one of America’s highest homicide rates) under the cloak of night, and calls for getting rid of yet more monuments are simultaneously the death throes of the old America built on one national concept and the birth pangs of a new, borderless, multiethnic, multilingual, multireligious, multisexual, ahistorical, fake America being born in violence and lawlessness.

When one accepts demonization of part of our history and placing those who defend it beyond the pale of legitimate discourse, one should hardly be surprised when the arrogant fury of the victors is unleashed. That takes two forms: the nihilist street thugs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, and the authorities (both governmental and media, a/k/a the Swamp) who confer on them immunity for violent, criminal behavior.

They’ve been at it for months, well before Charlottesville, across the country, with nary a peep from the party that supposedly has uniform control over the federal government. Our First Amendment rights as Americans end where a black-clad masked thug chooses to put his or her or indeterminate gender fist or club. To paraphrase U.S. Chief Justice Roger Taney in Dred Scott, loyalists of the old America have no rights which the partisans of the new one are bound to respect. Where’s the Justice Department probe of civil rights violations by this organized, directed brutality? What about a probe into George Soros’s connection?

To be sure, the spectacle of genuine racists on display in Charlottesville provided the perfect pretext for these people, but they’re not the cause. Far from forestalling the violent, revolutionary abolition of the historic America by inciting some kind of white backlash – perhaps in the form of a race war as some of them despicably hope – the Unite the Right organizers at Charlottesville have accelerated the revolution. It’s a revolution that dovetails with the anti-constitutional RussiaGate coup in progress against President Trump, who is the last hope for preserving the historic American nation. If he is removed and the nice respectable anti-Trump Republican party is restored, they’ll gladly join hands with their Democratic and media Swamp buddies in dragging what remains of America down.

If anyone is tempted to think that the new America will be more peaceful in world affairs, think again. It’s no coincidence that the same forces that want to bring Trump down and also redefine our country’s identity coincide almost entirely with those who want America aggressively to impose our values – meaning their values – on the globe. This new fake America is the vanguard of Rainbow Fascism, at home and abroad.

No doubt the same terrible sense of foreboding, even worse, must have occurred to Russians in 1920, when they saw their country bloodily sacrificed on the altar of a crazed, internationalist ideology. Somehow, after paying an unimaginable price in war and repression, they emerged three quarters of a century later still remembering how (as the late General Aleksandr Lebed put it) "to feel like Russians again".

If we fail to avoid the impending long night, will we Americans be so lucky?

Pawn of the New World Order


by Sigmund Fraud

The mother lode of all conspiracies is the New World Order. In essence, it is a high-level, multi-generational plan to render all sovereign national governments subservient to an unelected, supranational, authoritarian world government. In this scheme, the people of planet earth will be micromanaged with strict social, technological and financial controls. It is the total consolidation of global power into the hands of a ruthless, minority elite who aim to rule the planet and enslave the human race.

They can’t do it alone, though, they need your help. They need witting and unwitting minions to set the brush fires of revolutionary change in our towns and cities. They need pawns to agitate and disrupt the relative peace, and to upend the status quo with turmoil. They need senseless, animal-like violence, caught on camera and replayed ad infinitum on cable news and social media. They need terror, of both the foreign and domestic variety. They need fear in the streets, and fear in the minds of the proles.

Most of all, though, they need you to create chaos, so that they can bring order.

The powers that be, those demons of the deep state, those orchestrators of fear, famine, debt and war, cannot achieve their plan without leading the masses into confusion and disarray, for only then will the masses demand an end to their own freedoms and privacy. And sadly, it appears their army of minions is growing in strength and audacity.

In the aftermath of Charlottesville it is more clear than ever that there is no shortage of pawns for the New World Order. The armies of ignorance are gathering, and here are three signs you might be among them.

1. You’re Playing the Divide and Conquer Game

Left vs. Right. Black vs. White. Republican vs. Democrat. Citizen vs. Immigrant. Communist vs. Fascist. Have vs. Have Not. My Team vs. Your Team. Me vs. You.

There are a thousand and one ways for a society to faction and split apart, but without community and unity we are lost, doomed and done. If you’re entrenched in one side of any dualistic paradigm, seeking to convert or to crush the other side, then you’re playing right into the hands of the NWO.

The tactic of top-down divide and conquer is the oldest play in the book of how to overthrow sovereign people. The rulers foment conflict amongst the people, then step out of the way and let them fight it out, so that they can step in later as the benevolent savior… big brother.

If you’re playing this game, then you’re doing their work for them.

2.) You’re a Vocal Supporter of the War Du Jour

Today the drums are beating for a nuclear assault against North Korea… and military intervention in Venezuela. Just recently we’ve been told we need to prepare for conflict with Russia, and that an invasion of Syria is in our best interests. Prior to that we destroyed Libya and Iraq, we occupied Afghanistan, and we’ve been using the war on drugs and the war on terror as casus belli for interference in dozens of countries around the world.

The imperial mindset is several generations deep in America, and the citizenry has all but fully abandoned the anti-war stance in favor of gung-ho, jingoistic cheerleading of any and all military escapades.

The New World Order is brute force, but in our hyper-connected world they need to create the appearance of public support in order to advance the military industrial colonization of the world. It cannot do this without the public support and advocacy of at least some segment of the proletariat.

If you’re always on board for the expansion of international conflict, taking cues from mainstream media in this regard, and demanding action against all of our perceived enemies, you are aiding and abetting the New World Order.



3.) You Direct Your Anger and Frustration Towards Anyone but Those at the Very Top of the Pyramid

Zero doubt there are a million problems plaguing our complex world today, and it can be comforting to blame someone whom you can look in the eye, someone who is unprotected by the wealth and security afforded by the oligarchy. Emotional reactions to the stresses in our modern world are to be expected, but without knowledge of the contemporary power structures pulling the big strings, those reactions can be sorely misdirected onto lesser players and other pawns.

The truth is out there. At the root, a geo-political financial elite is conquering the world through manipulation of currencies, the imposition of astronomically insurmountable levels of public and private debt, and full-spectrum military dominance of uncooperative nations. This program is far above and beyond the capacity of your fellow citizen.

If you’re convinced that taking your outrage to the streets in war against your fellow countrymen is going to solve the problems of the world, you’re helping to fulfill the goals of the New World Order.

Kill Whitey -- the Left's new battle cry.
Social unrest and civil war are the final stepping-stones to a brave new authoritarian future. In order to get there, the American people must exhibit a self-motivated and determined resolve for violence against each other.

The New World Order needs blue pill takers, those people who deliberately choose ignorance in exchange for spurious peace of mind. They need useful idiots to help distract the rest of the population from the crimes of the oligarchy. They need armies of volunteer foot soldiers and pawns who will create the conditions necessary for martial law and even broader restrictions of rights and freedoms.

For the New World Order to succeed, we must ultimately demand our own slavery.
