Thanksgiving

Yesterday, a great many Americans sat down to give thanks for the love and the life that they enjoyed during 2018.

For some, it may have been a new career.  For others, perhaps they’ve met that special someone – whether it be a future husband or wife, or maybe a new addition to the family has made their appearance.

A vast multitude of Americans were likely thankful just to be inside where it’s nice and warm.

Thanksgiving Day 2018 will bring the coldest conditions of the autumn so far; it will flat out be blustery and frigid. Expect northwest winds to average 15-20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph throughout New England and along the coastal mid-Atlantic. The windiest part of the day in the central Appalachians and the mid-Atlantic will be during the morning hours. Much of the day will be windy in New England.

Over the past 150 years or so, the bulk of the frigid Thanksgivings occurred during the mid-1800s to near the turn of the 20th Century.

For example, in New York City, there have been less than a handful of Thanksgiving days with a forecast morning low in the teens F and a high in the 20s, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Jesse Ferrell.

That puts 2018’s Turkey day in rare air.

“Nov. 30, 1871, holds the record for the coldest Thanksgiving Day on record in New York City with a low of 15 and a high of 22,” Ferrell said.

AccuWeather is projecting a morning low of 19 and an afternoon high of 27 in New York City this Thanksgiving Day.

Now, with reports of the sun heading into a quieter cycle in the coming decades, could a blustery and uncomfortable Thanksgiving be the new norm?

An announcer for an Iowa racetrack thrilled the home crowd with a rant against national anthem protesters, but his bosses were less accepting. Video of announcer Lon Oelke’s rant was broadcast live on FloRacing, but once it was posted to social media it went viral. Some were upset over the announcer’s reference to “darker toned skin people.” After complaints filed in, the The Kossuth County Speedway in Algona, Iowa, announced that it had fired the announcer who was a fill-in announcer and not full-time. “It was not OK, and it will not be happening again,” the company said in a statement. “Kossuth County Speedway looks forward to proving to our fans, drivers and crews that we can and will do better.” During his announcement, Oelke told fans that he had a public service announcement. “I’ve got four words for you: Find a different country if you won’t do it,” he said. “Get the hell out of dodge!” He went on to slam the NFL. “Now they’re gonna have another national anthem, for those folks, I guess the darker toned skin color, I’ll just say, Blacks,” Oelke added. “They want a different national anthem and the NFL is thinking about doing it,” he said. “So, I just say shut the TVs off and let them play in front of nobody.” https://youtu.be/5GeJkeXW6pI Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

A new conservative children’s book is looking to keep the woke out of story time with a new anti-transgender theme. Brae Books has published its new book for the kiddos entitled, Elephants are Not Birds, that tells kids that you are what you are biologically. According to the website, Brave Books offers parents “a conservative alternative to the current cultural activism that our children are being taught in schools, in the entertainment they watch and the books they read.” Company CEO Trent Talbot said he was driven to create the new book line when he noticed that “that there is a real war going on for the hearts and minds of our kids. And everywhere I looked was propaganda,” the New York Post reported. Per the paper: An ophthalmologist by trade, Talbot pointed to Ibram X. Kendi’s picture book, “Antiracist Baby,” which urges parents and kids to “make equity a reality,” as content that needs a counterpoint. “Once my eyes were open I was seeing it everywhere and I couldn’t unsee it,” Talbot said. “I thought there was a need for books that could help parents teach the values they hold dear.” Brave Books’ first offering is called “Elephants are Not Birds,” the story of an elephant named Kevin who likes to sing, and then is convinced by a vulture — named Culture — that he warbles so well, he must actually be a bird. Brave Books also made the decision to to refuse to do business with Amazon.com and will sell their wares only on their website. The Post added: Other planned books include, “The Island of Free Ice Cream” by former OAN anchor Jack Posobiec, which will tackle Communism. The company is also courting Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), to write “Fame, Blame, and the Raft of Shame” about…
