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.

Vandal destroys Trump’s Hollywood sidewalk star

The hate is real: A man Vandal using a sledgehammer and a pick-ax destroyed Donald Trump’s Hollywood Walk of Fame sidewalk star.

Understand this above all else: Should Donald Trump win the election the left will not accept his victory, and will make an organized effort to undermine anything he tries to do. And this effort will include a vast majority of government workers, whose campaign contributions favor Hillary Clinton by 18-1.

This is why I found the media uproar last week about Trump’s suggestion that he would not accept the election results to be laughable. Should Clinton lose, the left is going to exhibit far more denial of the election results than anything you can imagine that might come from the right. Their response will be violent, it will be sustained, and it will repeatedly defiant of the law.

Update: I had hardly finishing writing the above when I came upon this story: ‘Angry protesters’ to storm D.C. Trump hotel grand opening. And this will only be a taste.

    Ah the left, so tolerant, so understanding, so willing to wait for all of the facts.

    ***WARNING*** Massive sarcasm alert.

    Now is this “Jamie Otis” going to be arrested and charged? Or will he get another free pass from the left and be allowed to destroy anything he wants like those other, poor, misguided, downtrodden individuals in Baltimore?

    Which is why Trump’s answer to “How will you deal with racial strife?” in one of the debates with “Law and Order” repeatadly was correct, and resonates with so many people.

  • Cotour

    This is an indication of a potential Trump win.

    The left and their associates have become exceptionally embolden these past few years. I am starting to believe they truly plan to make their play for the golden ring in the near future.

  • wodun

    The media keeps saying “protesters” when they should be saying DNC and Hillary campaign operatives.

    A must listen to speech, by Micheal Moore?

    Moore makes one of the most pertinent speeches related to our modern American politics and our civilization.

    Listen and learn from an unsuspected political commenter why Trump must / will become the next president.

    Cotour–
    …no, it’s not really “must listen.”
    :)

    It’s Michael Moore for god sake. If he said “the sky is blue,” I’d wonder what scam he was pulling.
    (and I never miss an opportunity to say, “he never lived in Flint, he’s from Davison, MI., an upscale bedroom suburb north of Flint, and his “vacation cabin” is a 750K house on Torch Lake, near Traverse City, Michigan.)
