There is an old guy living at my house. His once dark hair has faded into a flea-bitten gray with age, and he has only a few teeth left. Except for his enthusiastic rumbling at breakfast and dinner, he is a man of few words. His days are spent eating, standing under the porch, following around the other two old men in residence (he is notably codependent), and swooshing away flies. He also enjoys taking long naps outside in the sun.
The old guy who lives at my house is friendly, highly sociable, and extremely nosey… always right in the middle of whatever I am trying to get done. Each time I attempt to pick weeds, he eats them! What’s even worse, he has been known to confuse my blonde hair with alfalfa hay!
In case you hadn’t already guessed, the old guy living at my house is a twenty-eight-year-old American Quarter Horse named Sydney.
At present, there is a debate raging over the USC mascot, a white Arabian named Traveler, who has suddenly under fire for having the same name as Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s horse, Traveller (spelled differently, with 2 L’s). According to an article at the Independent Journal Review, claims both for and against a possible link between USC’s Traveler and Lee’s Traveller are unsubstantiated. Still, I wondered, could it be possible that the USC’s Traveler is, in fact, a racist? I set out to find the answer.

At EQUINESPOT.COM, “Traveler” is listed among the top 45 horse names beginning with the letter “T.” Another name found on the list of “T” names is “Tiny Tim,” though the website does not specify whether or not this name is of any relation to the character from Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol,” nor does the website indicate whether “Tiny Tim” is only to be used for crippled horses. All I can say for certain is that horses around the country sport the name Traveler.
So, I thought I would ask an expert: Sydney.
He’s always been a good listener.
Beside the barn we stood as he patiently allowed me to explain the current kerfuffle, listening intently to my questions. “Could Traveler be a racist?” I inquired. After I had finished, he stood there peering into my eyes… not saying a word. The suspense was intense; the pause, agonizing…….. Agonizing!
Finally, after a few minutes of deep consideration, Sydney shook his large head vigorously from side to side, then turned and walked away. While I can’t be certain that Sydney wasn’t just shewing a horsefly away from his nose, I’ll take his gesture as an emphatic, “NO!”
So, no need to fret USC fans… Traveler is not a racist. And you heard it straight from the horse’s mouth!
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
