The 1776 Report AKA Hillsdale College Manifesto.

Curiously on Martin Luther King Junior day Trumps 1776 committee chose to release their report. This was a project manned by some of the greatest 17th century minds. A blatant attempt to counter the 1619 project which is in fact a more accurate assessment of Americas history.

The head architect of this screed was the President of Hillsdale College. No small college in America has a more lucrative scam going than Hillsdale does. They tell people no one is more important than the individual. They have used their libertarian stance to raise millions from wealthy institutions and individuals. They celebrate capitalism, war criminals, employ drunk dialing wives of degenerate Supreme Court Justices.

They corrupt local law enforcement and politics to serve their own ends. I have observed Hillsdale College since a boy delivering papers on the hill. I formed my opinion of their hypocrisy at around the age of eleven. Nothing I have ever seen since has indicated my first presumptions were wrong. I could cite many examples. From the George Roche scandals and even before that. Recent examples are many including getting the local airport to construct a parking ramp for Pat Sajaks' private jet at a cost of over 1 million dollars. He is a board member.

Recently they defied Governors orders regarding Coronavirus. There is no doubt they contributed to making our small rural county the worst in the state for Coronavirus by encouraging people on campus and off to defy restrictions on Coronavirus, Going so far as to furnish a lawyer for a restaurant that remained open to the point health department pulled their license mid December. To this day they are open and serving the maskless.

These are just a few ways Hillsdale College has helped make my county a conservative hell hole. I have many more examples. I am sure this will be another huge money maker for them. After all that is what is important. I remember well what two long time professors told me shortly after current college president was named. They said this guy scares me, George just wanted to be famous and raise money. The new guy is a real Nazi type.

Just got a pleasant surprise in the mail. An election bet I had written off

was paid today. A very old friend who now lives in Floriduh had said he wanted to bet Trump would be reelected. This was in response to my FB page where I challenged Trump supporters to wager. Lots of talk but when I narrowed it down to actually paying if they lost no one was willing to have a third party hold the money. Anyhow I was sure this guy would pay. About three weeks before election he went radio silent. Never heard a peep. Before the election his son who lives a few miles from me said his dad was up here before election and he said to him just go pay him now.

Not one word about it on FB or otherwise. Today a check dated 1 6 21 arrives in the mail. I was right twice, he would pay and Biden won. I of course would have sent him a check on 11 4 20 if it went the other way. I had written it off and even said I'd send the money I was prepared to pay, to my local food bank which I did. Pleasant surprise!

I would really love it if Beschloss or other noted historian

whipped up a book on history 20 and 40 years in the future. A look at how historians will look at the last 2 months. Perhaps if people saw how they will be portrayed in 2041 and 2061, What their grandkids will read about them. What their legacy will be. Some might choose to do the right thing. Not a traditional book thing just throw something together in a few days. A glimpse of the future.

Abbott has killed over 460 Texans today.

Will anyone notice? Today in US is just brutal. Let it not be lost in all the other noise.

Today reminded me how gently capitol police

handled disabled protesters who just wanted to talk to Mitch. This was perfect commercial for defund the police.
