I am now running my annual July fund-raising campaign to celebrate the twelfth anniversary of the establishment of Behind the Black. For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. These companies practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.


Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Conscious Choice cover

From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

    They may have gotten their gun camera video if drones existed during Waco. Now that was an example of things getting out of control where innocent children were IMO murdered by government entities. I wonder where Janet Reno is spending her time these days, I suspect she has a heat rash problem.

    It’s an ill wind that blows no good…they way things are going, soon , very soon, one of these standoffs with the feds will result in blood. think waco or ruby ridge…

  • mpthompson

    Talked with a number of liberal acquaintances regarding the standoff. To them, there is no question that EVERYBODY should stand down to government authority. If not, they deserve what they get.

    I agree with Orion314, this will indeed result in bloodshed. Probably much quicker than any of us would have imagined just a few weeks ago.

    BTW, a thought occurred to me a few days ago. There can be little doubt that in today’s surveillance culture that the federal government knows the identify of every person that showed up to defend the Bundy ranch and cattle. What will happen to these people over the next few months and years? Will they become IRS targets? Will they experience mysterious health care or other federal benefit snafus? Or perhaps worse? That being said, the identity of everyone who has even made a blog posting or comment in support of the resistance is probably tracked and likely identified to a real person (or at least to a real person’s home or work). Are we all being identified, as Harry Reid would call us, as potential or actual “Domestic Terrorists”. Do we doubt there is a digital dossier on each one of us in the vast NSA domestic intelligence databases? I know this sounds paranoid, but one has to wonder…

    We better ultimately win this battle in the political sphere? If not, the alternative will be VERY ugly for anyone not in support of government authority and action.

    Liberals. For people who declare that they are peaceful, they certainly spend a lot of time, ink, and internet space preaching violence. Maybe they aren’t as peace loving as they proclaim.

    I suppose that would explain why the liberal French Revolution guillotined so many people.

  • Deplorable indeed, but the linked article doesn’t have the best sources,

    This one at least links directly to the tweets in question.

    Even better, read the replies to the original tweets.

    It’s enlightening to note that original posters are not the only ones behaving poorly. Commenters on both the right and the left made similar threats with one conservative stating his wish that the original poster ‘drop dead’.

    Jeez-let’s not give these psychopaths any more ideas, I can just see the TSA with guillotines in the airport check-in lines….
