Will Americans still be celebrating Thanksgiving 100 years from now?
This year marks the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival in America. The moment, which deserved wider recognition, was celebrated in an excellent speech by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark.
“A great American anniversary is upon us,” Cottonsaidon Nov. 18. “Regrettably, we haven’t heard much about this anniversary of the Mayflower; I suppose the Pilgrims have fallen out of favor in fashionable circles these days. I’d therefore like to take a few minutes to reflect on the Pilgrim story and its living legacy for our nation.”
Cotton delivered a fitting tribute to the Pilgrims and their story of faith and perseverance, which is so intertwined with the Thanksgiving holiday and the values we cherish most.
Perhaps predictably, the speech was attacked by media outlets and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who hurled an ad hominem attack at Cotton on Twitter...

How much do you know about the meaning and history of civil rights in America?
If you’re like most Americans—especially our youngest citizens—you probably only learned about a few important stories spread across the long history of our great nation.
That’s why we’re launching our latest free online course, “Civil Rights in American History,” next month.
This new course covers our Founders’ understanding of equality, natural rights, and civil rights; the quest for justice up to and through the Civil War, during Reconstruction, and in the 20th century; and the danger posed to civil rights today by identity politics.
So Mr. or MS. _______, how much do you know about this critical subject?
You can test your knowledge today by taking a brief quiz we’ve put together from the course lectures. You can use the link below to take this short (and fun) quiz.
A group of scholars meets this week to discuss the impact of the Mayflower Compact—signed 400 years ago last week, on Nov. 11, 1620—on the American concept of the rule of law.
The Heritage Foundation and the Religious Freedom Institute are co-hosting the second event in a webinar series exploring the major themes in one of America’s neglected founding documents.
“The Mayflower Compactreaffirmed one of the fundamental ideas of the Magna Carta; namely, that no political society could flourish without respect for the rule of law,” said Kim Holmes, executive vice president of The Heritage Foundation…
This is the new Democratic Party Norm, Google how Downtown Manhattan, D.C. and other places were boarding up store fronts in anticipation of violence (not front conservatives) if a Trump victory was assured. ALL TRUE PATRIOTS should be Warned and Worried. – Mike

If someone asked you where Christians could be fined $300,000 for worshipping Jesus, most of you would probably say communist China. Try San Jose, California. That’s where liberal local officials have decided to make an example of any congregation willing to stand up to the governor’s ridiculous orders. They’re willing to bankrupt churches and even send Calvary Chapel Senior Pastor Mike McClure to jail for daring to safely gather God’s people.
“I don’t want to break the law,”he said to the congregation on Sunday, “but I’m called to preach gospel.” McClure also made it clear that by showing up, anyone could be in trouble with the law. “…[T]hey could arrest you, give you a fine, or a citation,” he warned. That didn’t seem to deter the 600 or so people in attendance. They cheered McClure’s bold stand, which attorneys defended this morning in a Santa Clara County court…
