    Master Debaters 3.0

    in Politics Conservative

    Round 3 of the RNC roadshow built to manage your mind and support vote splitters so the RNC and its controlling globalist oligarchs can run  ¿Jeb? up the middle with less than 20%.  This is business as usual in American celebutard political dramaturgy.  The problem is El ¿Jeb? Boosh sucks so bad that he can’t close the deal even when it is set up for him.  An even bigger problem is an anomaly the oligarchs never expected: Trump, the Kraken!

    Meanwhile, in advance of the Murdoch Empire ‘debate’ the RNC cancels NBC and Trump prepares to underwrite his own debate.  Moves and countermoves, this is the art of the deal.  The phony pre-emptive surrender Congress, now led by mini-Mitt, piles on more insurmountable debt, and cuts Social Security. The White House officially deploys troops in Syria (illegally) as the first American fatality is used for propaganda in a war which we have ‘no ground troops.’ Why?  Because in less than 30 days Russia has killed most of our ‘moderate’ jihadis whom we’ve been bombing for over a year without killing any.  Grab your ankles and bow to the New World Order or fight and Make America Great Again!

    Break the rigged system, smash it to pieces. To defeat the lawless hordes of Cultural Marxists, corporatists, oligarchs, kleptocrats, useful idiots and their fellow travelers you MUST CRUSH the globalist progressive-corporatist oligarchs and their canned-idiot meat-puppets on the ‘left’, ‘right’ and everywhere. . .for liberty!

    Brian P., of Newport, Rhode Island, came to the ANTIQUE ROADSHOW with records of his great-grandfather, Charles Edward Minor. The collection, was valued by appraiser Gary Piattoni at between $2,500 and $3,500,  he was a decorated African American seaman a mere 20 years after the abolition of slavery.


    After retiring from the Navy at 52, Minor had the wherewithal to buy a four-bedroom home in Newport and to invest in the stock market. Again, Minor was ahead of his time. Says Brian, "Some of the stocks didn't pan out, but he was buying stocks a hundred at a time during the Great Depression. Black man or white man, that's something." True, yet it is all the more remarkable for a black man in a society that would be segregated by law for another 30 years.

  • Mapping the Freedmen's Bureau with Angela Walton-Raji and Toni Carrier

    in History

    Did you know that the majority of Freedmen's Bureau records are now digitized and available online for free, as well as the records of other institutions that served newly-freed African Americans during Reconstruction? Angela Walton-Raji and Toni Carrier have built a new website called "Mapping the Freedmen's Bureau - An Interactive Research Guide" (www.mappingthefreedmensbureau.com) to assist researchers in locating and accessing records of the Freedmen's Bureau, Freedmen's hospitals, contraband camps and Freedman's Bank branches. Researchers can use the website's interactive map to learn which of these services were located near their area of research interest. If the records are online, the map provides a link to the records that tell the stories of newly-freed former slaves in the American south. The goal of this mapping project is to provide researchers, from the professional to the novice, a useful tool to more effectively tell the family story, the local history and the greater story of the nation during Reconstruction.

    Angela Walton-Raji is an author, genealogist, guest lecturer and producer of the weekly African Roots Podcast and Toni Carrier is the Founder of LowcountryAfricana, a free website dedicated to African American genealogy and history in SC, GA and FL.
