Classic/Prophetic TRP Phone Call from April 2014 on "Jeffersonian Republicanism..."


The Immortal Thomas Jefferson
Founder of the Republican Party!
Hero of the "Productive Class!"

TRP remains "the fountainhead of the Right" with amazing political and societal prophecy that continues to pour forth on the "digital air waves" every Friday Night at 8:00 PM Eastern! "Thinking Man's Talk Radio" here on TRP!....While mainstream "political gossip radio" drones on with their forgettable "daily hot-topic muck" to fill air time, TRP refuses to conform and continues to lead the way! In-depth history is examined and disseminated, using reason to explore cutting edge ideas and rediscover our once great Republic!

Was Captain James T. Kirk a member of the "Cult of the Constitution?"....The Constitution of 1787 has failed in it's aims, where is the promised "Liberty for the posterity"??....Patrick Henry and all the great "Anti-Federalists(those forgotten heroes that supported our original and true Constitution, The Articles of Confederation!) predicted all the evils of consolidation that would result from the flawed and vague Constitution of 1787!....The "mysterious" reason we have a "two party system" is explained....

The 150 year cover up of our "Jeffersonian Free Enterprise" roots is exposed!...Thomas Jefferson is the originator of the "Grand Ole Party!!" Both he and Ronald Reagan are polar opposites of that counterfeit Republican, "Dishonest Abe Lincoln!"....Reagan never got proper credit for curbing inflation! That along with his tax cuts created the "ReaganBoom!"....Ronald Reagan's "devolution revolution," his blue print to reestablish "Federalism" and restore the Republic is brought to light with the recounting of his amazing executive order 12612 on October 26th, 1987! Unfortunately, 11 years later, all the good that was done was revoked by Clinton's executive orders 13083 and 13095! ....The "War of Federal Aggression" and their "school of consolidation" ruthlessly continues! ....Rediscover Jeffersonianism and save the Republic before it is too late!!

Only with banking reform and sound "hard" commodity based money can the "productive middle class" truly conduct Free Enterprise!...LBJ demonetized our coinage, it used to be 90% silver and provided an "easily accessible mini store house of value" for the productive class!....Hard money at the State level & 100% reserve banking!....Not the "Invisible hand," but the "loving hand" of Free Enterprise!!....Taking the "fangs out of majoritarianism" and the need for a separation of economics and state!...J.J Hill, the "Industrial Free Enterprise Hero," creates his "Great Northern" railroad without a dime of Federal money, unlike the corrupt, inefficient, and poorly built boondoggle that was the "Transcontinental" railroad and the CrΓ©dit Mobilier scandal! ...Before the 14th amendment (1868), everyone was a citizen "only" of their State (they considered it their ancestral country), after the 14th Amendment everyone was made a dual citizen, not just of their State, but, of some rogue entity called "The United States," in which everyone was forced to pledge allegiance to a newly centralized National Government!...Is Atlas Shrugging?? Is it time for us to meet at Ayn Rand's Galt's Gulch??....


Federalist #39 The Union was intended to be both FEDERAL "and" NATIONAL! Not one dominating over the other! (Cornerstone of Jeffersonian/Madisonian Constitution principle.)

Federalist #42 Included, Madison speaks out against slavery.

Federalist #45 The States sovereign in their sphere, the Federal government only in it's sphere! The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce...

Federalist #46 Both Federal and State gov's only "agents of the people," each with separate powers. The Federal only 18 enumerated powers listed under Article 1 Section 8. (Madison would later see some of his thoughts here in defending the possibility of Federal encroachment were wrong.) Also, he talks about the advantage of American's "being armed."

Federalist# 49 "A reverence for the laws would be sufficiently inculcated by the voice of an enlightened reason." "Reason needed over passion and it alone ought to control and regulate the government."

Federalist # 51 America meant to be a "compound Republic" with both State and Federal gov's acting as a check on the other.  The society (was supposed to be) broken into so many parts, interests, and classes of citizens, that the rights of individuals, or of the minority, will be in little danger from interested combinations of the majority.  A proper "Federal" system is needed and it is only when the Federal principle breaks down society will end in tyranny (where we are today.)

Some facts about slavery minus the modern political correctness: The Old South is constantly depicted as the bastion of slavery for the world pre-1865, but less than 6% of the 10.7 million total African slaves that survived being taken off that continent made it to the North America!...(Between 1525 and 1866, in the entire history of the slave trade to the New World, according to the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database, 12.5 million Africans were shipped to the New World. 10.7 million survived the dreaded Middle Passage, disembarking in North America, the Caribbean and South America. And how many of these 10.7 million Africans were shipped directly to North America? Only about 388,000. That's right: a tiny percentage!)....From the years 1500 to 1700 over 1 million Whites were enslaved by Arab Merchants!....The southern slaves were worth 3 billion dollars on the eve of the "The War of Northern Aggression" (a sum greater than the value of all manufacturing and railroads in the United States at the time.) Were the top 5% that owned the vast majority of southern slaves expected to give that up without compensated emancipation?? The average white free hold farmer, mechanic, and artisan of the time hated competing against "free slave labor" that undercut their efforts, but, they didn't want them all turned loose overnight either, to rule over them, like the Boervolk today!! ....Django Unchained, despicably uses the "N-Word" 114 times in a sick, vicious, and laughable modern caricature of the Old South! ....Spain had slavery until 1886, Brazil until 1888, why were those countries not invaded and their slaves freed?!?!

The January 6 Insurrection Hoax

 

The January 6 Insurrection Hoax

Roger Kimball
Editor and Publisher, The New Criterion





Roger Kimball is editor and publisher of The New Criterion and publisher of Encounter Books. He earned his B.A. from Bennington College and his M.A. and M.Phil. in philosophy from Yale University. He has written for numerous publications, including The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times Book Review, and is a columnist for The Spectator World, American Greatness, and The Epoch Times. He is editor or author of several books, including The Long March: How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed America, The Rape of the Masters: How Political Correctness Sabotages Art, Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education, and Vox Populi: The Perils and Promises of Populism.  

The following is adapted from a lecture delivered at Hillsdale College on September 20, 2021, during a Center for Constructive Alternatives conference on “Critical American Elections.”  

Notwithstanding all the hysterical rhetoric surrounding the events of January 6, 2021, two critical things stand out. The first is that what happened was much more hoax than insurrection. In fact, in my judgment, it wasn’t an insurrection at all.  

An “insurrection,” as the dictionary will tell you, is a violent uprising against a government or other established authority. Unlike the violent riots that swept the country in the summer of 2020—riots that caused some $2 billion in property damage and claimed more than 20 lives—the January 6 protest at the Capitol building in Washington, D.C. lasted a few hours, caused minimal damage, and the only person directly killed was an unarmed female Trump supporter who was shot by a Capitol Police officer. It was, as Tucker Carlson said shortly after the event, a political protest that “got out of hand.”

At the rally preceding the events in question, Donald Trump had suggested that people march to the Capitol “peacefully and patriotically”—these were his exact words—in order to make their voices heard. He did not incite a riot; he stirred up a crowd. Was that, given the circumstances, imprudent? Probably. Was it an effort to overthrow the government? Hardly.  

I know this is not the narrative that we have all been instructed to parrot. Indeed, to listen to the establishment media and our political masters, the January 6 protest was a dire threat to the very fabric of our nation: the worst assault on “our democracy” since 9/11, since Pearl Harbor, and even—according to Joe Biden last April—since the Civil War!   

Note that phrase “our democracy”: Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and various talking heads have repeated it ad nauseam. But you do not need an advanced degree in hermeneutics to understand that what they mean by “our democracy” is their oligarchy. Similarly, when Pelosi talks about “the people’s house,” she doesn’t mean a house that welcomes riff-raff like you and me.  

I just alluded to Ashli Babbitt, the unarmed supporter of Donald Trump who was shot and killed on January 6. Her fate brings me to the second critical thing to understand about the January 6 insurrection hoax. Namely, that it was not a stand-alone event.   

On the contrary, what happened that afternoon, and what happened afterwards, is only intelligible when seen as a chapter in the long-running effort to discredit and, ultimately, to dispose of Donald Trump—as well as what Hillary Clinton might call the “deplorable” populist sentiment that brought Trump to power.   

In other words, to understand the January 6 insurrection hoax, you also have to understand that other long-running hoax, the Russia collusion hoax. The story of that hoax begins back in 2015, when the resources of the federal government were first mobilized to spy on the Trump campaign, to frame various people close to Trump, and eventually to launch a full-throated criminal investigation of the Trump administration.   

From before Trump took office, the Russia collusion hoax was used as a pretext to create a parallel administration shadowing the elected administration. Remember the Steele dossier, the fantastical document confected by the “well-regarded” former British spy Christopher Steele? We know now that it was the only relevant predicate for ordering FISA warrants to spy on Carter Page and other American citizens.   

But in truth, the Steele dossier was just opposition dirt covertly paid for by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. From beginning to end, it was a tissue of lies and fabrications. Everyone involved knew all along it was garbage—rumors and fantasies fed to a gullible Steele by shady Russian sources. But it was nonetheless used to deploy, illegally, the awesome coercive power of the state against a presidential candidate of whom the ruling bureaucracy and its favored candidate disapproved.   

The public learned that the Democratic National Committee paid for the manufactured evidence only because of a court order. James Comey, the disgraced former director of the FBI, publicly denied knowing who paid for it, but emails from a year earlier prove that he knew all along. And what was the penalty for lying in Comey’s case? He got a huge book deal and toured the country denouncing Trump to the gleeful satisfaction of his anti-Trump audiences.   

What was true of Comey was also true of the entire intelligence apparat, from former CIA Director John Brennan to Congressman Adam Schiff and other Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee to senior members of the FBI. All these people said publicly that they had seen clear evidence of collusion with Russia. But they admitted under oath behind closed doors that they hadn’t.

General Michael Flynn, Trump’s original National Security Advisor, had his career ruined and was bankrupted as part of this political vendetta. Meanwhile James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, John Brennan, Peter Strzok, and all the rest of the crew at the FBI, the CIA, and other intelligence agencies suffered nothing. When it came to light that an FBI lawyer altered an email in order to help get a FISA warrant—in other words, that he doctored evidence to spy on a political opponent, which is a felony—he got probation.  

The recent news that Special Counsel John Durham is indicting Michael Sussman, a lawyer who covertly worked for the Clinton campaign and lied to the FBI, is welcome news. But it seems like small beer given the rampant higher-level corruption that saturated the Russia collusion hoax.  

At least 74 million citizens voted for Donald Trump in 2020, which is at least 11 million more than voted for him in 2016. Many of those voters are profoundly disillusioned and increasingly angry about this entire story—the years-long Robert Mueller “investigation,” the two impeachments of President Trump, the cloud of unknowing that surrounds the 2020 election, and the many questions that have emerged not only from the January 6 protest at the Capitol, but even more from the government’s response to that protest.  

Which brings me back to Ashli Babbitt, the long-serving Air Force veteran who was shot and killed by a nervous Capitol Police officer. Babbitt was a useful prop when the media was in overdrive describing the January 6 events as an “armed insurrection” in which wild Trump supporters, supposedly at Trump’s instigation, attacked the Capitol with the intention of overturning the 2020 election.  

According to that narrative, five people, including Babbitt, died in the skirmish. Moreover, it was said, Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was bludgeoned to death by a raging Trump supporter wielding a fire extinguisher. That gem of a story about the fire extinguisher, reported in our former paper of record, The New York Times, was instantly picked up by other media outlets and spread like a Chinese virus.

Of course, it is absolutely critical to the Democratic Party narrative that the January 6 incident be made to seem as violent and crazed as possible. Hence the comparisons to 9/11, Pearl Harbor, and the Civil War. Only thus can pro-Trump Americans be excluded from “our democracy” by being branded as “domestic extremists” if not, indeed, “domestic terrorists.”  

The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution accords American citizens the right to a speedy trial. But most of the political prisoners of January 6—many of whom have been kept in solitary confinement—are still waiting to be brought to trial. And although the media was full of predictions that they would be found guilty of criminal sedition, none has.   

Indeed, the prosecution’s cases seem to be falling apart. Most of the hundreds who have been arrested are being charged with trespassing. Another charge being leveled against them is “disrupting an official proceeding.” This is a felony charge designed not for ceremonial procedures like the January 6 certification of the vote, but rather for disrupting Congressional inquiries—for example, by shredding documents relevant to a Congressional investigation. It originated during the George W. Bush administration to deal with the Enron case.  

The indisputable fact about January 6 is that although five people died at or near the Capitol on that day or soon thereafter, none of these deaths was brought about by the protesters. The shot fired by Capitol Police Officer Michael Byrd that hit Ashli Babbitt in the neck and killed her was the only shot fired at the Capitol that day. No guns were recovered from the Capitol on January 6. Zero.  

The liberal commentator Glenn Greenwald further diminished the “armed insurrection” narrative in an important column last February titled “The False and Exaggerated Claims Still Being Spread About the Capitol Riot.” The title says it all. Kevin Greeson, Greenwald notes, was killed not by the protesters but died of a heart attack outside the Capitol. Benjamin Philips, the founder of a pro-Trump website called Trumparoo, died of a stroke that day. Rosanne Boyland, another Trump supporter, was reported by The New York Times to have been inadvertently “killed in a crush of fellow rioters during their attempt to fight through a police line.” But later video shows that, far from that, the police pushed protesters on top of Boyland and would not allow other protesters to pull her out.  

Four of the five who died, then, were pro-Trump protesters. And the fifth? Well, that was Officer Sicknick—also a Trump supporter, as it turned out—who, contrary to the false report gone viral of The New York Times, went home, told his family he felt fine, but died a day later from, as The Washington Post eventually and grudgingly reported, “natural causes.” No fire extinguishers were involved in his demise.  

***  

The January 6 insurrection hoax prompts lots of questions.  

Why, for example, did the government mobilize 26,000 federal troops from all across the country to surround “the people’s house” following January 6? Why were those troops subjected to FBI vetting, with some of them sent packing?   

Why is there some 14,000 hours of video footage of the event on January 6 that the government refuses to release? What are they afraid of letting the public see? More scenes of security guards actually opening doors and politely ushering in protesters? More pictures of FBI informants covertly salted among the crowd?  

My own view is that turning Washington into an armed camp was mostly theater. There was no threat that the Washington police could not have handled. But it was also a show of force and an act of intimidation. The message was: “We’re in charge now, rubes, and don’t you forget it.”  

In truth, there is little threat of domestic terror in this country. But there is plenty of domestic conservatism. And that conservatism is the real focus of the establishment’s ire.  

It is important to note that while the government provides the muscle for this war on dissent, the elite culture at large is a willing accomplice. Consider, for example, the open letter, signed by more than 500 “publishing professionals” (authors, editors, designers, and so on), calling on the industry to reject books written by anyone who had anything to do with the Trump administration.   

These paragons pledged to do whatever they could to stop “enriching the monsters among us.” But here’s their problem: over 74 million people voted for Trump. That’s a lot of monsters.   

Many people have been quoting Benjamin Franklin’s famous response when asked what sort of government they had come up with at the Constitutional Convention of 1787. “A republic,” Franklin said, “if you can keep it.” Right now, it looks like we can’t. It looks as if the American constitutional republic has given way, as least temporarily, to an American oligarchy.   

As the years go by, historians, if the censors allow them access to the documents and give them leave to publish their findings, may well count the 2016 presidential election as the last fair and open democratic election in U.S. history. I know we are not supposed to say that. I know that the heads of Twitter and Facebook and other woke guardians of the status quo call this view “The Big Lie” and do all they can to suppress it. But every honest person knows that the 2020 election was tainted.  

The forces responsible for the taint had tried before. Hitherto, their efforts had met with only limited success. But a perfect storm of forces conspired to make 2020 the first oligarchic installation of a president. It would not have happened, I think, absent the panic over the Chinese virus. But that panic, folded in a lover’s embrace by the Democratic establishment, was not only a splendid pretext to clamp down on civil liberties; it also provided an inarguable excuse to alter the rules for elections in several key states.  

“Inarguable” is not quite the right word. There could have been plenty of arguments, and many lawsuits, against the way the executive branches in these states usurped the constitutionally guaranteed prerogative of state legislatures to set the election rules when they intervened to allow massive mail-in voting. But the Trump administration, though foreseeing and complaining about the executive interventions, did too little too late to make a difference.   

Among the many sobering realities that the 2020 election brought home is that in our current and particular form of oligarchy, the people do have a voice, but it is a voice that is everywhere pressured, cajoled, shaped, and bullied. The people also have a choice, but only among a roster of candidates approved by the elite consensus.   

The central fact to appreciate about Donald Trump is that he was elected president without the permission, and over the incredulous objections, of the bipartisan oligarchy that governs us. That was his unforgivable offense. Trump was the greatest threat in history to the credentialed class and the globalist administrative state upon which they feed. Representatives of that oligarchy tried for four years to destroy Trump. Remember that the first mention of impeachment came 19 minutes after his inauguration, an event that was met not only by a widespread Democratic boycott and hysterical claims by Nancy Pelosi and others that the election had been hijacked, but also by riots in Washington, D.C. that saw at least six policemen injured, numerous cars torched, and other property destroyed.   

You will search in vain for media or other ruling class denunciations of that violence, or for bulletins from corporate America advising their customers of their solidarity with the newly-installed Trump administration. As the commentator Howie Carr noted, some riots are more equal than others. Some get you the approval of people like Nancy Pelosi and at least the grudging acceptance of oligarchs of the other party. Others get the FBI sweeping the country for “domestic terrorists” and the lords of Big Tech canceling people who defend the protesters’ cause.  

Someday—maybe someday soon—this witches’ sabbath, this festival of scapegoating, and what George Orwell called the “hideous ecstasy” of hate will be at an end. Perhaps someday people will be aghast, and some will be ashamed, of what they did to the President of the United States and people who supported him: the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, for instance, proposing to put Senator Ted Cruz on a “no fly” list, and Simon & Schuster canceling Senator Josh Hawley’s book contract.   

Donald Trump is the Emmanuel Goldstein (the designated principal enemy of the totalitarian state Oceania in Orwell’s 1984) of the movement. But minor public enemies are legion. Anyone harboring “Trumpist” inclinations is suspect, hence the widespread calls for “deprogramming” Trump’s supporters, who are routinely said to be “marching toward sedition.”  

Michael Barone, one of our most perceptive political commentators, got it right when he wrote of the rapid movement “from impeaching incitement to canceling conservatism.” That is the path our oligarchs are inviting us to travel now, criminalizing political dissent and transforming policy differences into a species of heresy. You don’t debate heretics, after all. You seek to destroy them. 

Donald Trump’s accomplishments as president were nothing less than stunning. Trump was, and is, a rude force of nature. He accomplished an immense amount. But he lacked one thing. Some say it was self-discipline or finesse. I agree with a friend of mine who suggested that Trump’s critical flaw was a deficit in guile. That sounds odd, no doubt, since Trump is supposed to be the tough guy who mastered “the art of the deal.” But I think my friend is probably right. Trump seems never to have discerned what a viper’s nest our politics has become for anyone who is not a paid-up member of The Club.   

Maybe Trump understands this now. I have no insight into that question. I am pretty confident, though, that the 74 plus million people who voted for him understand it deeply. It’s another reason that The Club should be wary of celebrating its victory too expansively.   

Friedrich Hayek took one of the two epigraphs for his book, The Road to Serfdom, from the philosopher David Hume. “It is seldom,” Hume wrote, “that liberty of any kind is lost all at once.” Much as I admire Hume, I wonder whether he got this quite right. Sometimes, I would argue, liberty is erased almost instantaneously.  

I’d be willing to wager that Joseph Hackett, confronted with Hume’s observation, would express similar doubts. I would be happy to ask Mr. Hackett myself, but he is inaccessible. If the ironically titled “Department of Justice” has its way, he will be inaccessible for a long, long time—perhaps as long as 20 years.   Joseph Hackett, you see, is a 51-year-old Trump supporter and member of an organization called the Oath Keepers, a group whose members have pledged to “defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.” The FBI does not like the Oath Keepers—agents arrested its leader in January and have picked up many other members in the months since. Hackett traveled to Washington from his home in Florida to join the January 6 rally. According to court documents, he entered the Capitol at 2:45 that afternoon and left some nine minutes later, at 2:54. The next day, he went home. On May 28, he was apprehended by the FBI and indicted on a long list of charges, including conspiracy, obstruction of an official proceeding, destruction of government property, and illegally entering a restricted building.   

As far as I have been able to determine, no evidence of Hackett destroying property has come to light. According to his wife, it is not even clear that he entered the Capitol. But he certainly was in the environs. He was a member of the Oath Keepers. He was a supporter of Donald Trump. Therefore, he must be neutralized.  

Joseph Hackett is only one of hundreds of citizens who have been branded as “domestic terrorists” trying to “overthrow the government” and who are now languishing, in appalling conditions, jailed as political prisoners of an angry state apparat.  

Hayek’s overriding concern in The Road to Serfdom was to combat the forces that were pushing people further along that road to servitude. His chief concern was unchecked state power. In a new preface to the book’s 1956 edition, Hayek noted that one of its “main points” was to document how “extensive government control produces a psychological change, an alteration in the character of the people.”   

“This means,” Hayek wrote, “that even a strong tradition of political liberty is no safeguard if the danger is precisely that new institutions and policies will gradually undermine and destroy that spirit.”   

This dismal situation, Hayek continues, can be averted, but only if the spirit of liberty “reasserts itself in time and the people not only throw out the party which has been leading them further and further in the dangerous direction but also recognize the nature of the danger and resolutely change their course.”  

Note the power of that little word “if.” It was not so long ago that an American could contemplate totalitarian regimes and say, “Thank God we’ve escaped that.” It’s not at all clear that we can entertain that happy conviction any longer.   

That’s one melancholy lesson of the January 6 insurrection hoax: that America is fast mutating from a republic, in which individual liberty is paramount, into an oligarchy, in which conformity is increasingly demanded and enforced.  

Another lesson was perfectly expressed by Donald Trump when he reflected on the unremitting tsunami of hostility that he faced as President. “They’re after you,” he more than once told his supporters. “I’m just in the way.”  

Bingo.

Communist Dog Blumenthal Should Resign Immediately for Supporting Mass Murderers!


Communist Dog Blumenthal Should Resign Immediately for Supporting Mass Murderers!

At the event, not long before Blumenthal spoke, one of the two event hosts explained that “this year, the awards are held on the occasion of the 102nd anniversary of the Communist Party USA,” then went on for some time praising the party’s work since 1919 and “invit[ing]” listeners to join the Communist Party (by name) and create “a new socialist system.”

In introducing Blumenthal, the other host specifically said she was “honoring how important the Communist Party is … not just in Connecticut, but across the whole world.” Precisely one minute after she said those words, Blumenthal took the podium, saying he was “really excited and honored to be with you.”

Dr. Mark Andrew Holowchak Interview!
The "Woke Washing" & Attempted Cancellation of Thomas Jefferson by the Left (12/3/21)


We would like to welcome back to the program, Jeffersonian Hero, Dr. Mark Andrew Holowchak—philosopher, historian, and Commonwealthman!

Dr. Holowchak continues to face Leftist censorship from the mainstream as he dares to apply reason and objective thinking to the historiography of Thomas Jefferson! 

The preeminent Jeffersonian scholar of our time returns to TRP to address the disgusting removal of the statue of Thomas Jefferson from New York City Hall!  


Have we abandoned the consideration of truth??

1) Since last you were on the show for our big 2-part Declaration of Independence Spectacular what have you been doing?

2) Our producer, John from Connecticut, invited you back to the show because of a certain event: the removal of Jefferson’s statue from NYC Hall. Can you tell us about that event—at least, what you know of it? We’d also like you to speak on behalf of being a cancelled scholar. You have a new book on that, don’t you?
 
3) Not that it’s all that hard to guess, but what were the reasons for removal of the statue?
 
4) Let us be Satan’s advocate... Removalists want to rid us of TJ’s statue because he articulated ideals that he didn’t practice—that is, his supposed inauthenticity, (saying one thing and doing another...) ...You’re saying that we ought to celebrate the man who wrote the document. You maintain that we ought—and your choice of “ought” you say is a moral imperative—to celebrate the man, and not merely the document. Let’s investigate that.

5) Did the Black, Latino, and Asian Caucus & the Leftist City Council represent the opinions of the majority of the citizens of NYC when they voted 8-0 for removal? Was this a tyranny of the minority?
 
6) In your book, Rethinking Thomas Jefferson’s Views on Slavery and Race, you note that TJ considered Blacks inferior to Whites. Isn’t that racism?
 
7)  Thomas Jefferson historians seem to be of one voice that TJ did little or nothing to rid of the institution. In Rethinking Thomas Jefferson’s Views on Slavery and Race you maintain that he did much. Can you explain?

8) Some like famous Marxian historian Peter Onuf always say Thomas Jefferson could have done more to end slavery... especially later in his life... could he actually have done even more?

9) The same Leftist scholars castigate TJ for not freeing his slaves after his death, or during his life. Why didn't he do that? Isn't that hypocrisy?

10) Can't everything we appreciate as individuals & lovers of liberty (including religious liberty & freedom of conscience) be traced back to Jefferson?

11) Didn't TJ fight for the freedom of slaves as an attorney seventeen years before the Constitution of 1787 took effect?

12) With the Land Ordinance of 1784, five years before the United States government sat for the first time, didn't TJ attempt to eliminate the possibility of slavery in any new states or new territories? 

13) Marxian historians like to paint Jefferson as economically incompetent when he was in fact an economic genius... ...Why did Jefferson promote Free Enterprise/Free Market economics if he was a slave holder?

14) Was the Civil War fought for slavery or economic reasons?

15) What were some of things TJ accomplished as President of the American Philosophical Society from 1797 to 1814? ...He actually championed science while he was President?

16) How was Ronald Reagan a "Jeffersonian" Republican?

17) Why is Thomas Jefferson being targeted now by the woke mob and why is he being made the scapegoat by the Left? 

18) How do we cultivate and protect individualism over collectivism & save the Republic?

19) Thomas Jefferson called his party the "Republican" party first. ...Why is the fact that he actually founded the Republican Party (GOP) being glossed over and lied about to this day?

20) Would there be a United States, Bill of Rights, or Free Speech without Thomas Jefferson and would we even be having this great discussion today if not for him and his followers?
