The Smartest Horse in the World: Beautiful Jim Key

I stumbled across this very unique video today narrated by David Hoffman. The title of the video is “The Smartest Horse in the World” and it has to be one of the most unique stories I’ve ever heard.

The story begins with a young slave named William “Bill” King who had a way with horses. His master was described as a kind man who treated Bill as one of his sons. During the war Bill joined his brothers on the side of the South both protecting them, while at the same time helping thousands of slaves escape to the North.

He was captured and held as a spy, but had a personality that was enjoyed by his captors this led to a card game in which Bill won a substantial amount of money, and continued to do so through the remainder of the war.

After the war, Bill returned to Tennessee to find his former master had lost his plantation at which time Bill bought it back for him and soon began to train horses. He recognized that one horse was unique and developed a close bond with him.

The horse could count, make change and spell. The story was so unbelievable that a group of Harvard students decided to investigate the story for themselves and determined that the horse could count and spell at a 6th grade level.

Jim and Bill traveled throughout the country performing, they even met President McKinley. The rest of the story is best told through Hoffman’s narration and it is well worth taking the time to watch.

Out of the Past: Scopus Was Once the Headquarters for Large Counterfeiting Operation

The June 26, 1891 edition of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat carried an extensive article about U.S. Marshals busting a rather large counterfeiting ring near the town of Scopus. Today Scopus is nothing more than a crossroads but until the closing of the old store there several years ago, used to be a gathering place for locals in the area. I have often wondered if it was ever a sizable town but according to the article, in 1891, it consisted mainly of a post-office.

This episode is well-worth taking the time to listen to and helps the listener make sense of just what happened that day. Special thanks to grizzom.blogspot.com for providing the link!

From the Editor: My Thoughts On the Events of January 6,2021

I recorded this video shortly after the events of January 6, 2021. My thoughts and emotions were still raw but I stand by them. It was sickening to watch Senators and Representatives suddenly back out of their commitment to object to the certification of electors from states in which massive voter fraud had been proven. It is equally sickening to watch the press and Congress condemn these elected officials for trying to insure the integrity of our electoral process. Equally sickening was watching Congress praise the same Capitol police that shot an unarmed woman. As I stated I made this video shortly after the events transpired and I mistakenly referred to Ashli Babbit as Ashli Abbot, for that I apologize.- Editor

Liz Cheney Shouldn’t Lecture Donald Trump About Violent Behavior

From NPR:

“The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to impeach President Trump for “high crimes and misdemeanors” — specifically, for inciting an insurrection against the federal government at the U.S. Capitol.

Just one week before he will leave office, Trump has now become the first U.S. president to be impeached twice.

Wednesday’s vote came a week after Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in a chaotic scene that left five people dead.

Ten Republicans broke party ranks to vote in favor of impeachment, including Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, who chairs the House Republican Conference.

“None of this would have happened without the President,” Cheney said.”

Oh yeah Liz Cheney? Well this would not have happened without your father “Dick” Cheney!

Harry Whittington, shot in the face by Vice President Dick Cheney on February 11, 2006.

Look at this maniac. Cheney couldn’t wait to shoot someone in the face. So he shot his lawyer…who later apologized…for getting shot in the face.

CONGRESSMAN MO BROOKS REBUTS VICIOUS & SCURRILOUS FAKE NEWS MEDIA AND SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT ATTACKS

January 12, 2021 Press Release

Washington, DC— Tuesday, Congressman Mo Brooks (AL-05) issued the below statement in response to scurrilous Fake News Media and Socialist Democrat attacks related to his January 6th “Save America” rally speech:

As one of America’s most effective conservative leaders, I defend my honor and reputation against scurrilous, George Orwellian, 1984, Socialist Democrats Politics of Personal Destruction, the same attack strategy used in 2012 against then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney, and nonstop against President Trump with false Russian Collusion charges and the 2019 sham impeachment effort.

Let’s be clear, this entire smear campaign is about intimidating, censoring and suppressing the ability of American citizens to fight at the ballot box the efforts of Socialist Democrats to seize control of the United States of America.

So that I am unambiguously clear, American citizens’ recourse is at the ballot box (maybe this comment will deter Socialist Democrats and Fake News Media from again shrilly shouting false claims of violence advocacy).
