SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco will spend up to $600,000 to paint over historical artwork at a public school depicting the life of George Washington, a mural once seen as educational and innovative but now criticized as racist and degrading for its depiction of black and Native American people.

The “Life of Washington” was painted by Victor Arnautoff, one of the foremost muralists in the San Francisco area during the Depression. The San Francisco School Board’s decision to paint over the 83-year-old mural is prompting some to worry that other artwork from the so-called New Deal era could face a similar fate because of changing sensitivities.

In addition to depicting Washington as a soldier, surveyor and statesman, the 13-panel, 1,600-sqaure foot mural at George Washington High School contains images of white pioneers standing over the body of a Native American and slaves working at Washington’s Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.

After spending decades in a private collection, a resurfaced letter written by America’s first president praises God for the ratification of the United States Constitution.

It is over 230 years old, dating back to 1788.

The price tag?

A cool $140,000.

From Fox News:

The letter to Richard Peters, speaker of the Pennsylvania House, is signed Sept. 7, 1788, and praises God for the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.

Written a week after Washington told Alexander Hamilton that he would likely accept calls to assume the presidency, the letter came at a time when the Constitution was under attack. Some states wanted to hold a second Convention that may have undermined the Constitution.

Zoom in to read:

New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) is the mayor of gaffe city.

Noting that the age to run for president is 35 and Alexandria is only 29, a photographer said: “You can’t even run for president for another six years.

Ocasio-Cortez: “No, not for a long time. Thank God. Although we’ve been joking that because the Equal Rights Amendment hasn’t been passed yet, the Constitution technically says he cannot run unless he’s 35. … So what we’ll do is we’ll force the Republican Party to pass the Equal Rights Amendment by threatening to run for president.

Uh, Alexandria? The constitution does not say “he.”

As Playbook notes, the Constitution does not say “he” cannot run — it says “any person.”

According to Article II Section I of the Constitution:

No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty five years, and been fourteen Years a resident within the United States.

The mayor of gaffe city, the governor D’oh!-ville strikes again – with a vengeance!

Capitol Rioter Facing House Arrest After Mountain Lion Hunt

The excursion ran afoul of a “no guns” stipulation set by a judge.

Published

While we may be thankfully several months removed from the tumultuous events of the January 6th attempted insurrection at the US Capitol, there is still a great deal of adjudication left to be done on the subject, as these cases are expected to drag out for several more months, or perhaps even years. One of the alleged participants of that event is now in hot water after the court discovered that he had gone on a mountain lion hunt despite being ordered to avoid firearms completely as a condition of his bail. A Colorado hunting guide charged with participating in the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol will likely be placed on 24/7 house arrest — instead of remaining free while his case is pending — because he violated the conditions of his release by hunting and killing a mountain lion. Patrick Montgomery, a Littleton hunting guide, shot a mountain lion during a hunt in Douglas County on March 31, even though he was ordered not to possess any guns while the federal charges against him are pending, according to motions filed by prosecutors last week. Montgomery, 48, is accused of kicking a Metropolitan police officer in the chest and wrestling with the officer to try to take the officer’s baton during the Jan. 6 riot in Washington, D.C., according to court records. He was indicted on 10 charges in April, including assaulting a police officer, engaging in physical violence and illegally entering the Capitol building. Prosecutors pulled no punches in their assessment of Montgomery’s actions. “Montgomery has no respect for the Court’s orders, just like he had no respect for law enforcement at the Capitol on January 6,” reads a motion filed by prosecutors. “…Montgomery has flagrantly violated the law and has shown by his actions that he…

Boy Scouts Now Forcing Kids to Earn ‘Diversity’ Badge Featuring Anti-White Training

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that scouts will now have to earn a “diversity and inclusion” badge.

Published

The Boy Scouts of America has announced that scouts will now have to earn a “diversity and inclusion” badge pushing the radical gay/transgender agenda with training that will include anti-white courses to be able to earn Eagle Scout status. The Boy Scouts long ago went full woke, but this new “diversity” badge amps that up to full speed. The BSA added that it will include information about George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor in its indoctrination of boys and girls. In its announcement, the organization insisted that it “has not been as brave as we should have been” to address evil white supremacy. Oh, but to put up at ease, the BSA insisted this isn’t about left-wing politics… even though it is. “The Boy Scouts of America stands with Black families and the Black community because we believe that Black Lives Matter,” the organization said in a letter on the BSA’s blog, Scoutingwire. “This is not a political issue; it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address.” For some inexplicable reason, the BSA also reiterated that it stands against Civil War history, too, in order to “ensure that symbols of oppression are not in use today or in the future.” “We will also continue to listen more, learn more and do more to promote a culture in which every person feels that they belong, are respected and are valued in Scouting, in their community and across America,” the scouting organization added. Then there is the Scouts’ gay problem. As CNN noted, “Court testimony released last year shows that over 7,800 former scout leaders are accused of sexually abusing 12,000 scouts over 72 years.” Seriously, America, if you haven’t removed your children from the Boy Scouts already, now is the time. It is…
