Let’s Take Our Country Back by Lauren Hayden

The Greater Boston Friends of Camp Constitution recently hosted Lauren Hayden, a conservative Suffolk Law School Student at the Lane House in Lexington, MA Lauren grew up in liberal Laguna Beach, in conservative Orange County, in liberal California. She grew up arguing with liberal classmates and still finding friendships among her peers. She graduated from high school with a reputation for being loud and went straight to the Air Force Academy. All though she ended up graduating from UC Davis with a math degree, her two years at the Academy were enlightening and extremely educational. Today she is at Suffolk Law School hoping to graduate in Spring of 2022.

Boston Public Library Openly Endorses Racist, Anti-Christian, Anti-Semitic Organization


I made this short video after seeing this “Black Lives Matter” sign in my local public library in the West Roxbury section of Boston.   I spoke to the librarian and asked who made the decision to post a sign promoting a racist, anti-Semitic terrorist group.  She said that it was sent by “Copley” which is the main library in Boston.  It seems that all of Boston’s libraries are posting this sign.  I explained the true nature of Black Lives Matter to the librarian and she told me that she wasn’t aware of Black Lives Matter’s positions.  I told her that BLM isn’t hiding its positions.

May I suggest that readers view and share this short video, and then call the library at 617-325-3147 and ask them why they support a violent, anti-Semitic, anti-Christian organization.


The Weekly Sam: Riots, Reading and Revolution

While Sam Blumenfeld conducted this brief interview in 1992, he could have made it today.  Sam looks at the failure of the government schools in the inner-city and determines that these schools helped create an angry underclass that form gangs and engage in violence.


Camp Constitution Salutes Our Veterans–The History of Veterans Day

History of Veterans Day

World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.

However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

The United States Congress officially recognized the end of World War I when it passed a concurrent resolution on June 4, 1926, with these words:

Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation of the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations, which we hope may never again be severed, and

Whereas it is fitting that the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations; and

Whereas the legislatures of twenty-seven of our States have already declared November 11 to be a legal holiday: Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), that the President of the United States is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples. (The above is from the Veterans Administration.)
