Thanksgiving: A Story of Perseverance

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF


Today is Thanksgiving Day. Here's a part of the Thanksgiving story you may not have heard about.

While the first Thanksgiving was celebrated in October 1621, it was not until 1777 that all 13 colonies celebrated Thanksgiving for the first time.

At one point our first President, George Washington, proclaimed a National Day of Thanksgiving, but conflict, difficulties, and misunderstandings among the colonies ended the collective observance.

Here's how the day came to be recognized as the day we now observe. And how it finally became law in 1941.

When George Floyd Becomes Jesus

A painting depicting George Floyd as Jesus Christ hangs in two locations at the Catholic University of America.

To be sure, the artist insists that his painting depicts "both" Jesus and Floyd--no discrimination.

The Catholic University appears to be shrugging it off as no big deal.

It is a big deal---bigger than any Catholic, Protestant, or whatever university.

It's a clear picture of what's wrong in our culture.

President Biden: "Angry and Concerned" About Rittenhouse

In a statement issued from the White House on Friday, President Biden declared the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case left him "feeling angry and concerned" while acknowledging that "the jury has spoken."

As you know, Kyle Rittenhouse was found "not guilty" on all five counts against him.

Why would the president be "angry and concerned?"

And why are leftists now claiming that the massacre at the Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wis., Sunday evening is "karma" for the Rittenhouse case?

Mr. President, we should all be concerned.  

But how should our concern be directed?

The world rocked---and several cities rioted Friday evening as the verdict came in for Kyle Rittenhouse---accused of killing two men and injuring another.

"Not guilty on all counts" was not what the left wanted to hear. Including the president.

While saying he believed in our "trial by jury" system, President Biden said he did not agree with the verdict.

Deaquan Nichols, a rising leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, expressed on Instagram his sadness and anger: "Rittenhouse," he said, "was charged with murdering and taking away two beautiful Black lives."

There are several things to be learned from the Kyle Rittenhouse case.

GOP Aligning With LGBTQ?

Back in June, Republican Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel faced a wave of backlash after a tweet celebrating Pride Month. 

"Happy Pride month," she tweeted, "GOP is proud to have doubled our LGBTQ support over the last 4 years, and we will continue to grow our big tent..."

The reaction from the LGBTQ and the evangelicals was quick and to the point. Neither appreciated her comments.

However, she apparently was tone-deaf to all voices, because now she has announced that a new alliance has been forged between the LGBTQ and the Republican Party.
