The origins of FLAG DAY

flag dayELLY GRIMM • Leader & Times


The U.S. flag has a very storied history and Monday, people throughout the U.S. can commemorate that history with Flag Day. 

The idea for the annual holiday was begun in the late 1800s, according to 

“Bernard Cigrand, a small-town Wisconsin teacher, originated the idea for an annual flag day, to be celebrated across the country every June 14, in 1885,” noted. “That year, he led his school in the first formal observance of the holiday. Cigrand, who later changed careers and practiced dentistry in Illinois, continued to promote his concept and advocate respect for the flag throughout his life.”

The greatest threat to mainstream media

GUEST COLUMN, Spencer Brown,


The mainstream media is under attack.

Not from Donald Trump. Not from conservatives or Republicans. The truth is what threatens today’s mainstream media—and what little credibility to which it may cling—more than just about anything else. 

In the last few weeks, numerous revelations have broken through the suffocating pressure of “consensus” narratives repeated ad nauseam by the mainstream media, showing that the truth cannot be kept down forever.

From the origins of the Wuhan coronavirus to the events surrounding last summer’s violence in American streets, the truth keeps overcoming the misinformation or outright lies of those who act as though they know better than the rest of us. 

When a trove of emails sent by Dr. Anthony Fauci was made public last week, it wasn’t just his credibility—whether he admits it or not—that took a hit. The media muppets who faithfully repeated and amplified all of his attempts to sideline questions about COVID’s origins were also proven to be little more than propagandists.

As we reported, Fauci knew the drug store masks we were forced to wear didn’t stop virus from passing through. He heard about possibilities that COVID came from a lab and circulated articles to his colleagues about gain of function research that might allow person-to-person transmission of a virus originally constrained to animal species. But that didn’t stop him from making the rounds in the media for months, telling us our masks would save us and COVID was a natural phenomenon.
