    This impressive young man was one of the speakers at President Trump’s rally in Florida. I didn’t catch his name at the time and am glad to have run across him on FOX a few minutes ago. No doubt he has a very bright future.

    Mornin’ Lucille, Wee, and whoever else shows up. I had trouble going to sleep last night and didn’t let Loki get me up early this morning. It is misty raining this morning. The storm is supposed to turn across land north of Tampa. If that is where the eye is, then we will get hit with some of it. I am not sure had badly. I think we will be on the bottom edge of it. I am waiting for the weather report to come on. Well, I asked for rain. :\

    Good article; a slap in the face to CRT true believers.

    The Graph That Shatters CRT: July 4, 1776 Set Slavery on the Path to Worldwide Extinction

    As America celebrates the 245th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence this July 4, the legacy of the Declaration is under attack like perhaps never before. Much of the American left has adopted the view—one even espoused by Joe Biden’s Ambassador to the United Nations—that the Declaration is a “white supremacist” document. This is among the central notions of what has become known as Critical Race Theory. Yet this idea, so crucial to the thinking of the modern left, is not only not true, but the clear historical record shows that the exact opposite is true. The Declaration of Independence did not forever enshrine slavery and racism into the soul of America—it set slavery on the path to inevitable global extinction. . .

    The abolition of slavery in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia followed rather than preceded the Declaration of Independence and it did so for a simple reason. The British, far from being a force for emancipation, were a force against it. In fact, they opposed any move toward emancipation for the same reason the American Revolution was necessary in the first place. London sought control of all trade and economic activities in the colonies for revenue raising purposes. The British Exchequer profited from the buying and selling of slaves in American ports, and British banks invested heavily in loans to slave trading firms. Any attack on the slave trade would have been as much an act of rebellion against Britain as the attack on the tea trade was. . .

    And the evidence is that far from being empty words, many of those who signed their names to the Declaration in 1776 meant what they said about all men being created equal. In 1776, slavery was legal in every single colony. In the years to come it was outlawed in Pennsylvania in 1780, New Hampshire and Massachusetts in 1783, and Connecticut and Rhode Island in 1784. After the Constitution was ratified, it was abolished in New York (1799) and New Jersey (1804).

    Indeed, the period around 1776 marked a pivot point that set off a wave of abolitions around the globe. In his 2011 book Better Angels of our Nature, scholar Stephen Pinker illustrates this trend perfectly with a graph charting the progress of abolitionism worldwide:

    What explains this remarkable chart, and the rapid succession of American states that abolished slavery shortly after independence?

    My email box was full of terrific articles today. This one from the remarkable Michael Yon, investigative reporter and war correspondent extraordinaire…

    Morocco Now: old lady just walked up…
    …and asked if I am American. I smiled and said yes. She smiled big, gave thumbs up, said “good”, and limped away.

    The storm is still a long way off but a squall just came through. It was pretty short but intense, with a lot of rain while it lasted. That is the first one. It has been pretty calm and misty up until now. I am just east of Tampa.
