The Rifle

 Americans have been to war before. They have gone to war with the weapons they had, to paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld.

And the weapons of war they took were often state of the art. The Brown Bess, Kentucky Long Rifles, the Model 1873 trapdoor Springfield, the M1892 Krag-Jorgensen, the Lee Enfield and Springfield Model 1903 in World War 1, and then the M1 Garand that won World War Two. The Garand was for a short time upgraded into the M14 until the M16 replaced it, followed by its little brother the M4.

But the M1-Garand is iconic of World War Two.

Our guest today wrote a book called The Rifle, inspired in part by his ownership of the M1 Garand, and he has come out with the sequel. The Rifle: Back to the Battlefield.
Given that the anniversaries of both the start and end of World War Two were at the start of this month, each one day apart, I thought it would be good to talk to the author about this part of Your American Heritage.

These are stories of WW2 veterans who have held the M1 Garand.

Hero of the Realm

 I hosted Moment of Clarity.
Show notes:

Joining me is my friend Bruce Fleury, co-host of The Abolitionist Round Table heard here at 9am Saturdays.
Bruce also wrote The Negro Project: Margaret Sanger's Diabolical, Duplicitous, Dangerous, Disastrous and Deadly Plan for Black America.

Some very interesting stuff happened in Lansing this week.
Here to talk about it with us is Katherine Bussard, the Chief Operating Officer of Salt and Light Global.

Salt and Light was founded by my friends Will Wagner and Dave Kallman, also of Great Lakes Justice Center.

And also joining us to talk about it is Karen Whitsett the Democrat Representative of District 4 in Detroit.
The Detroit Democrat currently blocking abortion rights bills supported by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has been willing to break rank with her party before — and this time, she claims, she’s not the only one who has concerns. 

Rep. Karen Whitsett, a community organizer and activist first elected to the Michigan House in 2018, courted controversy among Democrats by meeting with then-President Donald Trump, voting with Republicans on several key policy matters and supporting a Republican lawmaker over a Democratic challenger during the 2020 election cycle.

Now, she’s in the spotlight again for being the lone Democrat in the House Health Policy Committee this week to vote against the Reproductive Health Act, an 11-bill package of abortion access bills that had been expected to pass through a Legislature with a razor-thin Democratic majority. 

I am so impressed with Representative Whitsett. She was last on Moment of Clarity a while back when she had recovered from Covid due to the intervention of President Donald Trump and Hydroxychloroquine. She took a lot of heat, but she is a warrior princess. Keep her in your prayers.

She is a modern Esther, in the right place for “such a time as this”. In fact, since Esther was the one who stopped the genocide of the Jews in Persia, perhaps the actions of Karen Whitsett will stem the genocide of black people in Detroit.

"I will not vote and fund Medicaid abortions, that's not gonna happen," Whitsett said. She added on the state's 24-hour waiting period: "I do not think it is too much to ask when someone's terminating a life, a 24-hour pause to be able to say for sure this is the decision you want to make. 24 hours is not too much."

Whitsett said she believes in safe and healthy access to abortion, but believes the rules currently in place still provide that access. The lawmaker said she has been pressured by her caucus to change her vote.

"I didn’t get here to do an easy job," Whitsett said. "I have a district to represent and it’s diverse. People who I have talked to in the community, this is what they want.”

 Like a dog chasing a car, that didn't know what to do with it once he caught it, when we got Roe struck down, we didn't know what to do with it. But the other side was waiting, and even leaked the decision so that they would be prepared at the next election. 

Why hasn’t that leaker been found and fired, fined and jailed?

Trump was roundly hammered by many like Jim Daly of Focus on the Family for criticizing Desantis’
 5 week abortion ban.

 “In order to win in 2024, Republicans must learn how to talk about Abortion. This issue cost us unnecessarily, but dearly, in the Midterms,” Trump wrote on his social media platform on Tuesday.

Songwriters: Brian Johnson / Joel Taylor / Jenn Johnson / Gabriel Wilson / Christa Black Gifford / Kari Brooke Jobe

The moon and stars they wept
The morning sun was dead
The Savior of the world was fallen
His body on the cross
His blood poured out for us
The weight of every curse upon Him
One final breath He gave
As Heaven looked away
The Son of God was laid in darkness
A battle in the grave
The war on death was waged

It's a shame how beautiful this song is while being so wrong.

The Savior of the world was fallen. 🚫
To be fallen is to have lost.
His Victory was on the cross.

As Heaven looked away. 🚫
Prove it.
Jesus was fulfilling a plan in place from before Creation. Heaven was probably cheering Him on. Or watching "breathlessly".
But no one was turning away.

A battle in the grave. 🚫
The victory was on the cross.
What battle ensued after that?
This is part of a popular heresy that Jesus suffered in hell for us.

It's sad that we sing this in church and play on the radio, promoting false doctrine.

I can imagine Jesus looking down when this is sung thinking, "That's not how it went down! Don't you know what I did?"

Your American Heritage 9 9 2023 

Joining me today is Mark Tapson, the Shillman Fellow on Popular Culture for the David Horowitz Freedom Center. He writes for Front Page Magazine. He is also the host of an original podcast on Frontpage, “The Right Take With Mark Tapson

Mark has recently written a pamphlet called The Top Ten Woke Lies, available at Front Page Magazine online. It's better than it sounds, as in, I enjoyed reading it.

Mark recently wrote two articles online there that you can read for free, that resonated with me in a big way and I wanted to have him on the show to talk about them, One on Masculinity, and the other on The Equalizer.

I trust you will enjoy this:

On Robert E Lee

  I interviewed  H. W. Crocker concerning his book Robert E. Lee onLeadership: Lessons in Character, Courage, and Vision.

It's a very readable, enjoyable review of the Civil War, with a view towards the elements that made him a successful leader of men.

One quote from the book was interesting for me:

"Lee was a firm believer in the basic Christian tenets, in particular the Christian doctrine of Original Sin. It was a—even the—salient point of his character. If he was resolute and confident, if he was never crushed by setbacks or interested in assigning blame for failure, it was because of this. He expected men to fail, because, by nature, men usually did. He knew the challenge of leadership was to understand the fallen nature of man and succeed in spite of it. So far did he believe this—and so far did he feel it was important to understand this reality—that he discouraged his children from reading fiction. In a letter to his wife, he wrote: “Let him [his son Rooney] never touch a novel. They print beauty more charming than nature, and describe happiness that never exists. They will teach him to sigh after that which has no reality, to despise the little good that is granted us in this world and to expect more than is given.”

"Do not dream. It is too ideal, too imaginary. Dreaming by day, I mean. Live in the world you inhabit. Look upon things as they are. Take them as you find them. Make the best of them. Turn them to your advantage.”"

I enjoyed the interview, and I hope you will too.

Lawfare Report

 Your American Heritage 8 19 2023

I spoke with attorney David Kallman (of Kallman Legal Group, Salt and Light Global and the Great Lakes Justice Center) about the charges against Trump and against the Michigan Alternate Electors, one of which he is representing in court.

 I had a bit of insight today at church.

Air is all around us.
It is only breath when it is in your lungs.
Dead people do not have breath in their lungs.
Thus, they gasped their last breath.

God breathed life into man.
And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. Gen 2:7

If your body is the temple of the Living God, then your breath is sanctified and holy. Think about that.
We should use it appropriately.
I'm going to pay closer attention to mine.
