Richard III is the king who is portrayed in the Shakespeare play as ordering the murder of the two princes in the Tower, children and heirs to Edward IV.

He was killed at the Battle of Bosworth Field ("A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse.")

His body was discovered under a car park in Leicester and the body was proven to be his through DNA and analysis of his skeletal remains, which had an abnormal curvature to the spine.

Here is a video showing bothe a bit of the history of the Battle of Bosworth and the re-internement ceremony.

clarice,

There is some doubt that Richard III was the villain portrayed by Shakespeare. There is even a Richard III society in the UK, where those whotook Richard's side in the War of the Roses apparently have passed ontheir support.

Shakespeare was writing for the Tudor crowd and a bit of a propagandist. Richard was the last of the Plantagenet kings. History is written by the winners, and that is why I so much hoped to see the true villains of these last decades revealed.

Look at how many British showed up to honor him at the re-burial ceremony. Quite a tribute.

Rick Ballard

The Michigan state legislature took away Whitmer's hammer and sickle. It's true her poll numbers are sinking like Biden's but it certainly wasn't her polling numbers which forced her inner bitch hand.

Henry,

Old Lurker

Henry, I mentioned before that the Israelis have a fancy unmanned AI motion activated machine gun that can be mounted on posts...

matt - deplore me if you must

Rick, that is a great idea!

It shows how willfully dishonest the left are when it is clearly pointed out to them in both photographic evidence and basic horsemanship that split reins are the 150+ year old standard method of guiding your horse. Between heel cues and reins Horses are tremendously adept in their abilities. Watch Gene Autry, Roy Rogers or Tom Mix and their horses or go to a frickin rodeo. Cutting out is a perfect example.

We have cutting out competitions in the canyon from May-November. Speaking of which the Salinas Rodeo is this weekend if anyone's interested.

Maybe Jen Pissaki can call Bruce Springsteen's daughter, who is probably clueless about Western riding anyway.

Defensive Gun Uses Happen Far More Often Than Homicides. By Tom Knighton | Sep 23, 2021 4:30 PM ET

"One thing we don’t hear the media talk much about is defensive gun use. Armed citizens use a firearm to protect themselves or others quite a bit–the actual numbers are unknown, but estimates vary from hundreds of thousands to millions per year–so you’d think this is something we’d hear a lot about in the media..."

We May Have Left Afghanistan, Mr. President, But We Are Still at War, by Pete Hoekstra, IPT News
September 23, 2021.

"...No, President Biden can say what he wants but that does not mean it is so. The other side has a say in this. And as we saw as we were leaving Kabul, the jihadists spoke clearly, they are still at war with us. If the crack team of foreign advisers that the president is relying on, Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley, and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, advised him that the United States is no longer at war, the world is in serious trouble.

The jihadists have not surrendered; they have not gone away. As a matter of fact, the world is a much more dangerous place than what it was just a few short months ago. The jihadists will be back. When they strike us again, let us hope that our leaders provide the necessary clarity this time around to identify the enemy and defeat them once and for all."

Davod. DJT wound down the fire fights of Afghanistan. He never asked for this war, and he never wanted it. 18 months without a combat or U.S. military death. Nearly the same time frame of the CHINEEEE VIRUS killing millions. After stopping combat and deciding on a withdrawal date of May 1. Donald Trump had the election rigged against him. Biden became in charge in January. He did NOTHING to extricate U.S./us. NOTHING.
He did however run his bloviating cake hole. And then he set the bug out date of 9/11. WHAT A FUCKING CLOWN. GRANDSTANDING. How did that work out??? With a couple of small surprises, this is EXACLTY what I expected of a DEMENTIA BOY BIDEN Presidency. ZERO SKILLS, ALL MOUTH, and sold his blackened soul to the COMMIES who are running the show. We've had our first rapes and wife beatings by BIDENS AFGHANI FRIENDS at FORT McCOY HERE IN WISCONSIN. It will get worse.

Davod

Gus. I still maintain that the nomination of someone that should have been unelectable was the icing on the cake for the people who engineered the election. They were intent on rubbing our noses in the fraud.

Davod

Gus. If we left so many Afghan allies in Afghanistan, just who are the tens of thousands who were evacuated?

Davod

PDS. The woman (can I say that) in the RTBA picture may well be a policewoman.

GUS

Davod, you must have seen the picture of the first jet that had the people chasing it, and wheel well passengers. Hundreds upon hundreds of INSURRECTIONISTS that were not even vetted as they over ran the JET. Then we have the BIDEN kommie kabal, telling us that they had "EVACUATED" BILLIONS AND BILLIONS, in the biggest air lift since BERLIN. They have ZERO IDEA who got on those jets. But they DO KNOW, that there were NO MANIFESTS.

GUS

Davod, the sELECTION of Dipshit dementia boy BIDEN, was a last ditch effort. The FIX was already in in Georgia, North Carolina (CERTAINLY) Pennsylvania, Michigan, Nevada and Arizona. FUCKERTURD paid operatives to infiltrate lib counties, and cities WITH CASH, and then they were 30 allowed to participate or even be in ways IN CHARGE of the ELECTION and the COUNT. This SHIT STEW, is NOT BIDEN, he is MILLI VANILLI, he gets to be PRESIDUNCE and DOCTOR CAMILLA PARKER BIDEN, gets to buy ugly slutty clothes. In the deal with the DEVIL......RACE BOY JIM CLYBURN POM PONNED for CAKE HOLE BIDEN, and the rest is HISTORY or HYSTERIA if you please.
Biden was neither ELECTED, nor is he in any way in charge. Somewhere 30 years from now, as my beloved SON turns 50, and controls his own wonderful world...SOMEWHERE.....this HORSE SHIT WILL BE REVISITED. Probably in a country that didn't suck CHINA'S dick. It is not easy for most to see what is happening in real time.
