The Red River meteorite

In 1810, a group of enterprising Anglo-Americans moved a 1-ton meteorite from North Texas to New York City

The Saga of Texas Iron

The Red River Meteorite

by Clay Coppedge

A long time ago in a land not very far away a large rock fell out of the sky and landed just a little shy of present-day Albany, Texas. The rock stayed there for untold centuries, an object of reverence for generations of Native Americans. The Comanche name for it translates into Medicine Rock.

Anglos called it Texas Iron.

Indian trader Anthony Glass and his band of like-minded comrades were the first white men to lay eyes on Texas Iron. Indian agent John Sibley, at the invitation of Taovaya chief Awahakei, sent a trade expedition to the Taovaya-Wichita villages along the Red River in 1809.

Glass and his men were motivated by tales of wild horse prairies and vast quantities of silver ore deposits on the Southern Plains. Glass paid attention when he was told by a native Spaniard named Tatesuck, who had been captured by the Wichita as a small boy and was now a distinguished warrior, of a large rock that was like iron, yet it did not rust. Glass immediately thought the rock might be platinum, its value priceless.

In late October, Glass and his men, after a two week journey, first laid eyes on Texas Iron. “We approached the place where the metal was; the Indians observing considerable ceremony as they approached,” Glass wrote in his journal. “We found it resting on its heaviest end and leaning towards one side and under it were some Pipes and Trinkets which had been placed there by some Indians who had been healed by visiting it. The mass was very little embedded in the place where we found it. There is no reason to think it had ever been moved by man.”

That was about to change. All the starry-eyed traders had to do was move the rock from where it was to a place where it could be sold to the highest bidder. A year after the initial foray into the Red River country, two factions of Glass’s original expedition set out independently to retrieve the rock.

The group that got there first also got there with the least; they had no way of transporting a ton of rock to the Red River, much less floating it on the river to Natchitoches. They managed to roll it under a “flat stone” and cover it with some grass before setting out to get some horeses and tools.

A second group, led by George Schamp, Ezra McCall and some other traders, convinced the Taovaya and Comanche to sell them the big iron that would not rust. Schamp’s group eventually found the rock where the first group had hidden it and made a truck wagon to which they harnessed six horses. In such a manner, they began the laborious process of hauling it to the Red River for transport downstream.

As if moving an almost immovable object (it later weighed out at just over a ton) wasn’t hard enough the men found themselves afoot after all their horses were stolen en route to the Red River. They secured more horses, possibly from the same Indians who stole theirs to begin with, and made their way to the Spanish Fort crossing on the Red River.

The traders constructed a sturdy raft from a large walnut tree and floated Texas Iron down the Red River to Natchitoches. There it stayed for the better part of a year, a marvel and a mystery. Sibley sent it to New Orleans for an appraisal but no one there could say for sure what it was or wasn’t. Sibley then sent it to New York for a proper assessment by experts.

Texas Iron’s arrival in New York corresponded with a notion that these rocks people were finding but no one could identify were not of this world, that they came from outer space: meteorites. Benjamin Silliman confirmed that this was one of those rocks, mostly iron and nickel, and practically worthless.

The disappointed traders never truly believed it, even as they sold it for a pittance to mineralogist George C. Gibbs, who loaned it to the New York Historical Society. The collection was given to the Lyceum of Natural History in New York, where Gibbs was also a member, in 1829.

Gibbs died in 1833. His meteorite came close to being put in the ground at the same time. His widow happened to be passing through Central Park one day when she saw some Irish laborers digging a huge hole. She asked what they were doing and was shocked and dismayed to find that the Lyceum, vacating its headquarters on the edge of the park, was preparing to bury her husband’s meteorite; they didn’t know what else to do with it. She rescued it and presented it to Yale University in memory of her husband. It’s still there today, where it’s known as the Red River Meteorite.

Back in Texas, it’s still called Texas Iron.,by%20Clay%20Coppedge,for%20generations%20of%20Native%20Americans.

 (I am surprised the Indians have not asked for return of the rock.)

Are women soldiers that out of shape?

Biden gives American money to overseas mines while pledging to close those in the US

From Reuters 

“U.S. President Joe Biden will rely on ally countries to supply the bulk of the metals needed to build electric vehicles and focus on processing them domestically into battery parts, part of a strategy designed to placate environmentalists, two administration officials with direct knowledge told Reuters.

Biden’s plan includes TechMet of Hot Springs, Ark., as an integral piece.

“The U.S. International Development Finance Corporation, part of the U.S. government that invests in overseas development projects, is TechMet’s largest investor."

“The firm (TechMet), which is an investor in battery recycler Li-Cycle Corp, has now raised nearly $133 million between its two rounds of funding. TechMet plans to use the funds to continue investments in mines and other projects that produce metals used to make electric vehicles.

So, TechMet is still in the money-raising part of its plan, despite its largest investor being the U.S. Government?

TechMet hopes to raise $250 million with which to buy earths or metals from mines overseas and then ship those products to U.S. plants to produce electric vehicles.

And the U.S. International Development Finance Corp. is “investing” American money, why? If the plan is such a good deal, why are American investment firms not putting their own money into this operation?

You can't be a victim, I claimed it first

Back in the late 1970s, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram hired an older reporter. I do not remember his name, nor the newspapers he had worked for before the Star-Telegram. 

The reporter pitched an idea to editors for a series on Mexican families who indentured themselves to be smuggled across the border and then work a specified amount of time for the farmer or rancher who brought them north.

I was a state and local news editor at the time and sat in on some meetings. I knew in outline form the series the older reporter was preparing, but none of the details. I did not disbelieve his stories; certainly indentured servitude was a possibility for illegals at the time, and why wouldn’t a family exchange work for entrance into the United States? The family worked, got paid, and the kids went to school, just like other kids.

At the meeting in which editors discussed the reporter’s stories, one of the upper-level editors asked the reporter, “Are you making this up?”

Her disbelief was evident. That was the 1970s, and involuntary servitude no longer existed.

Hers was a liberal, upper middle class belief. More than a belief, her opinion was a certainty. What she believed was the way the world was, and her more important beliefs were of the way the world should be.

Once in a while you will find unicorn and rainbow Texans, and when you do, their existence is more surprising than finding the same beliefs in non-Texans. We birth Texans are supposed to be grounded in the reality of nature and of people.

It has taken a long time for people to sort-of believe, but slavery exists today in the United States. In each state. Maybe even in every county.

Maybe in your town.

Slavery isn’t called slavery today, though. For some reason, slavery has been cleaned up and is now called human trafficking. Maybe that fits the ears better. Maybe people don’t want to admit the existence of slavery. Maybe, even, the more liberal and Progressive parts of society have laid a claim on slavery and determined the word applies only to black people, African-Americans, some of whose ancestors were owned by white Americans. That makes more sense. A self-proclaimed victim cannot share victimhood with another group. Politics demands a different term for other enslaved people.

Your secret power

“I was just rewatching Marvel’s Avengers End Game. It's amazing the way people watch supernatural heroes in movies and get a thrill at the story resolution on screen, but don't recognize that we are in an actual spiritual battle for our nation and our souls. And that THEY can be the hero. That They can access the secret power to restore normalcy and decency. They can pray, they can vote, they can lead others. They can phone, write and rally.

“’If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.’ (2 Chron. 7-14)

“And if there isn’t a change on the path we are headed to, it’s gonna get ugly.

“There is a pretender in the White House.

"’Today, no nation can find lasting security without addressing the climate crisis,’ he said. ‘We face all kinds of threats in our line of work, but few of them truly deserve to be called existential. The climate crisis does.’" .

Leftists understand force, but this is what gets good results

‘UW-Madison alumni threatened to pull support if campus moved embattled Lincoln statue, emails show’ 

From Legal Insurrection

As mobs tore down statues all over America last summer to protest the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd at the hands of police, University of Wisconsin-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank’s inbox filled up with messages from angry alumni demanding she keep a statue of Abraham Lincoln on campus.

Between June and November, Blank’s office received 192 emails, 80 percent of which supported keeping the UW’s landmark Lincoln statue on Bascom Hill, according to a review of the emails obtained by The College Fix through a public records act request.

“I will cease immediately all donations to the university and its student organizations” if the statue were to be removed, wrote one alumnus, adding, “I will also cancel my season tickets to the UW football and men’s basketball teams. And finally, I will engage in a very public and messy campaign to encourage my fellow alumni to do the same.”

“Should you give in, that will end my support of the UW, much as that action would break my heart,” wrote another emailer. “My donations are done,” wrote another. “Only shutting off the money flow causes University leadership to listen.”

“My wife and I will immediately discontinue our support of the Wisconsin football program and indeed will have spent the last dollar we will ever spend in the city of Madison,” emailer Greg Sinner wrote. “Moreover, we will become vocal advocates for taking the same actions among our friends and associates, many of whom are Wisconsin season ticket holders.”

One opinion, two opinions

 Something I read today pinged my “Hang on a minute” meter. A respondent on a gun blog said he chose not to get the COVID vaccine. That’s fine. His choice. But then he said, “I simply do not trust a rushed vaccine that is not properly FDA approved and in some cases do (sic) not work.” I have met many of the blog readers and respondents. Twenty-something of us in two shooting sessions put a lot of lead down range at a nearby gun range. These are “stay out of my life” people. And, people who have in the past objected to FDA rules, regulations and testing, and the time it takes to get a new drug in circulation, on the market. So to now object to “a rushed vaccine…not properly FDA approved” seems counter-intuitive. His opinion, my opinion, equal weight.

Don't ask another question


My Little Armalite

Sure, and these lyrics could be considered calling for the overthrow of somebody's government, but my family left there a couple hundred and fifty years ago.

And it's down along the bog road, that's where I long to be
Lyin' in the dark with a Provo company
A comrade on me left and another one on me right
A clip of ammunition for me little Armalite

I was stopped by a soldier, he said, "You are a swine"
He hit me with his rifle and he kicked me in the groin
I begged and I pleaded, oh my manners were polite
But all the time I'm thinkin' of me little Armalite

And it's down in the bogside, that's where I long to be
Lyin' in the dark with a Provo company
A comrade on me left and another one on me right
And a clip of ammunition for me little Armalite

Well this brave R.U.C. man came marchin' up our street
600 British soldiers he had lined up at his feet
"Come out ye cowardly Fenians, come on out and fight"
He cried "I'm only jokin'!", when he heard the Armalite

And it's down in Mullahy, that's where I long to be
Lyin' in the dark with a Provo company
A comrade on me left and another one on me right
A clip of ammunition for me little Armalite

Well, the army came to visit me, 'twas in the early hours
With Saracens, and Saladins, and Ferret armoured cars
They thought they had me cornered, but I gave them all a fright
With the armour-piercin' bullets of me little Armalite

And it's down in the New Lodge, that's where I long to be
Lyin' in the dark with a Provo company
A comrade on me left and another one on me right
A clip of ammunition for me little Armalite

Well, when Prior came to Belfast, to see the battles won
The generals they had told him, "We've got them on the run"
But corporals and privates, while on patrol at night
Say, "Remember Narrow Water and the bloody Armalite"

And it's down in Crossmaglen, that's where I long to be
Lyin' in the dark with a Provo company
A comrade on me left and another one on me right
And a clip of ammunition for me little Armalite

$15 an hour for trainees?

From Valor Guardians 

On April 27, 2021, President Biden boldly signed an executive order raising the minimum wage for federal contract employees to $15 per hour. According to the accompanying White House fact sheet, this “ensures that hundreds of thousands of workers no longer have to work full time and still live in poverty.” In pursuing this laudable goal, the president has effectively made the federal minimum wage for unskilled contractor workers $31,000 a year.

My question is why is the contractor slinging hash in the mess hall making nearly 60 percent more than the private who is willing to risk everything for his country standing in the chow line? Currently, a new enlistee in the armed forces makes $1,650.30 per month, or roughly $19,803 annualized — an $11,400 difference. This works out to about $9.52 per hour — only if you make the fantastical assumption that new soldiers work only 40 hours a week. It takes a service member serving in the pay grade E-4 with three years of service to make the kind of scratch the dishwasher makes. To fix this, not only does pay for new enlistees need to increase by more than 57 percent, but the raise needs to be applied across the board. You cannot have privates making more than sergeants. Or sergeants more than lieutenants.



Woman punches car thief trying to steal her old, beat up Honda Civic

The feel-good story of the year, 

By KCAL/KCBS Staff | May 13, 2021 at 12:28 AM EDT - Updated May 13 at 12:28 AM

CORONA, Calif. (KCAL/KCBS) - A California mother was so angry at a man she found trying to steal her car that she punched him in the face then chased him down the sidewalk in an incident that was caught on camera.

Samantha Raahauge’s 2007 Honda Civic has a crumpled hood, a power window that won’t roll up and a DIY body paint job. She’s been working on getting a better car for herself and her daughter, but for now, the Honda works.

So, the single mother says it infuriated her to walk out of work and find a stranger in the front seat of her car, jamming a shaved key into the ignition and trying to steal it.

“Look at my car. It’s s-----! And I work hard! And this [expletive] is out there stealing s----- cars, knowing that the person who owns that car probably doesn’t make a lot of money. It just hit me wrong,” Raahauge said.

Raahauge was so angry she punched the would-be thief in the face, right through her broken car window.

“I don’t know if it was God’s fist or Thor’s hammer, but it was a good one,” she said.

The thief was so scared he climbed out of the passenger’s side door, but Raahauge chased him around the car and all the way down the sidewalk.

“I basically just went into full beast mode and said, ‘You ain’t gonna run away from me now,’” Raahauge said.

Police say by the time they arrived on scene, the suspect was long gone.

Raahauge says she cares less about the $500 car than her daughter’s prized possession that was inside of it. Her daughter takes jiujitsu classes, and her first customized Gi, a training uniform, could have been stolen.

“I had her first Gi that she’s ever had that was custom in the car. I think that’s the only thing I would have been really upset about,” Raahauge said.

The mother says she doesn’t even really care if the thief is caught after she stood up for herself and punched him.

“Like I said, I’m good. I did what I did. No regrets,” she said.

Police are still searching for the suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call the Corona Police Department.

Head of Chechnya going all Achmed

From Caucasian Knot

One of Instagram commentators has called Ramzan Kadyrov a "shaitan". In response, the head of Chechnya promised to find the user who needed to write a will and threatened to liquidate him.

On May 17, the head of Chechnya was live on the Instagram. He drew attention to the comment of one of the users and read it out. "You aren't a man – you are just a shaitan," he quoted one of the commentators and started laughing.

"If you write this to me, I'll find you and we'll see who of us is a shaitan ... Send me your data directly. Let's see who of us is a shaitan. I've liquidated a lot of shaitans, and will liquidate you too," the head of Chechnya promised.

Tumso Abdurakhmanov, a blogger, has commented on Kadyrov's statement in his Telegram channel. "The head of a Russian region threatens to liquidate an Instagram commentator," Tumso has written.

Earlier, Kadyrov had already threatened the authors of negative materials about Chechnya, as well as social network users who comment on these materials; in particular, in November 2019, he did it at a sitting of the republic's government.

Pentagon to hire private firm to spy on service members

"AS PART OF the Biden administration’s crackdown on domestic extremism, the Pentagon plans to launch a pilot program for screening social media content for extremist material, according to internal Defense Department documents reviewed by The Intercept, as well as a source with direct knowledge of the program.

"An extremism steering committee led by Bishop Garrison, a senior adviser to the secretary of defense, is currently designing the social media screening pilot program, which will “continuously” monitor military personnel for “concerning behaviors,” according to a Pentagon briefing in late March. Although in the past the military has balked at surveilling service members for extremist political views due to First Amendment protections, the pilot program will rely on a private surveillance firm in order to circumvent First Amendment restrictions on government monitoring, according to a senior Pentagon official."

Well, now, isn’t that just wonderful. Used to be, what a soldier said after a few beers off duty was his business. Of course, way back when, presidential administrations did not suspect their uniformed hirelings of harboring ill intent, and I doubt, seriously doubt, that military personnel today have any intent to overthrow the government. Soldiers take seriously their oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Soldiers today don’t have time for that "extremism" sort of thing, and each has a God-given right to think as he/she wants about the present government in power.

You have to wonder, too, since the Pentagon is so busy looking for “domestic extremism,” did the eavesdroppers miss three Fort Campbell soldiers who sold hundreds of guns to Chicago street-level gun dealers?

American Airlines investigating pilot for...well, some Leftists complained

From The Dallas Morning News, via Legal Insurrection

American Airlines is investigating one of its pilots after social media users urged the company to review his posts and podcasts criticizing Carroll ISD’s proposed diversity and inclusion initiative and its supporters.

Guy Midkiff, 62, is a Southlake resident who has been a pilot at American for 32 years, according to his LinkedIn profile.

“We are troubled by the allegations made and have launched an investigation into the matter,” an American Airlines representative said Wednesday in an email.

Through his Twitter and Facebook accounts as well as a podcast called Wise Guy Talks, Midkiff has documented his opposition to the district’s Cultural Competence Action Plan, as well as various groups and community members who support it.
