Mullah Mueller and the Taliban Lawfare Clan

The Joy Reid situation illustrates why the right should never…and I mean never…apologize to the progressive left.   That the left hasn’t grabbed their pitchforks, ignited their torches and marching, en masse, to the MSNBC studios chanting for her head on a platter proves that as long as you profess progressive views, you will be…

The Ringelmann Effect

Life is not designed to be easy or efficient. If it was, it wouldn’t be worth living. Throughout history, philosophers have sought to design the “optimum” society. Since many of the early philosophers were scientists, logicians and mathematicians, many from the age of Plato – and even into the 17th century – tried to conceptualize…

Trumplaw

In general, the poo-slinging at the President done by the progressive left is strong proof they are willing to destroy anything and everything to advance their agenda. While this process is exhausting to witness from a distance – and I’m sure much more so to experience up close – 80 percent of it is just…

POINTS TO PONDER: Can the Rest of the World Stay Free and Prosperous if America Looses the 2nd Amendment?

Originally posted on THE ROAD TO CONCORD:
How many of us remember this man and this speech? https://youtu.be/xxHyxP6qbBk That ‘intellectual elite’ about which Reagan spoke is in charge of the majority of our government and social institutions.  With the exception of our elected representatives, this ‘elite’ is self-appointed.  They have risen to power though nepotism…

A Tale of Two Americas

Look at the UK today – I have always said that whatever happens in the UK eventually washes up on the shores of America. In the UK, the police are now protecting the state from the citizens, not the citizens from criminals. There is a very stark, very bright line dividing the interests of the…

The Silent Genocide

On April 24th, the world passed a grim milestone, one that unfortunately in these politically correct, diversity obsessed, “no culture is better than another” times will largely go unnoticed. It is the anniversary of an event that I would wager is not even spoken of in world history classes in America. I consider myself a…

Death Sentences, Progressive Democrats and Marx

Charlie Gard. Alfie Evans. Progressive Democrats. Candace Owens. Kanye West. Karl Marx. You might ask what two children from the UK have in common with a black conservative woman, a rapper, progressive Democrats and Karl Marx. Charlie Gard was the child of Chris and Connie Gard who was diagnosed as having a genetic disease so…

Slavery in America

To use a classical reference, “”Fox Butterfield, Is That You?” (courtesy of the estimable James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal)   The Democrats are talking “reparations” as a party platform plank for the coming elections. I went to the notorious right wing propaganda rag, the Washington Post, to learn me some knowledge (my comments…

The Democrat’s Deadly Diaspora

I hopped in the truck to make a late carbon donation in memory of yesterday’s Earth Day and my radio happened to default to NPR (I was listening to an audio book the last time I was in the truck and when my Bluetooth switches back, it defaults to the FM band), and there was…

Digital Autocracy

Autocratic collectivism in the form of socialism, Marxism or communism won’t come to America in the form of a violent revolution – at least not in the sense of physical violence. It doesn’t have to – because we have given it all the tools it needs to be implements through voluntarily surrendering what is the…

The Moral Dilemma of Baby Bunnies

*****UPDATE***** Sad to report that this morning, I found our little guy having a hard time breathing. I put him on my chest so he could feel my heartbeat and my body could warm him but at 7:01 AM Mountain Time, his breathing stopped. Our best efforts could only give him two more days of…

Chamberlain’s Disease

Baltimore police chief apologizes for 200 years of policing. Starbucks apologizes to blacks and closes for a day of “unconscious bias” training. California cities apologize to illegal aliens for our laws. Universities apologize to student mobs for allowing conservative thought on campus. America is suffering from Chamberlain’s Disease. No, we aren’t kowtowing to Nazi Germany…

The UK Gives In and Gives Up

More forced perspective. It is a matter of perspective. If you have been taught all your life that America is the worst country on earth by those who have believed the same their entire lives, you are going to define anyone who shows any pride in America as evil and a fascist. The UK is…

50% of Millennials Identify as Socialists

Or so says the New York Times. Do American progressives truly believe in America? If you ask them, they are offended. “How dare you insinuate that I’m not an American, that I’m not patriotic”, comes the response, “Of course I love this country!” Call one a socialist, and you will no doubt get a lengthy…

Of Mencken and Men…

“Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them…

Layer Cake

A friend’s daughter asked me for some input on a paper she is writing for her history class (she is a freshman in college). We got into a discussion about why America didn’t devolve into chaos since it puts so much emphasis on individual freedom. We talked about how much that has changed over the…

#FakeHistory

Perhaps the greatest challenge to Western Civilization comes when enough people order their decisions based on perception rather than reality and our politics and culture begin to rely on a foundation built on sand. #FakeHistory, so to speak. Not a day goes by when we aren’t told that things we accepted as fact were not…

Starbucks: Not Woolworths

What is interesting to me about Starbucks getting dragged over a bed of hot coals is not the cries of racism – but how the incidents expose the penchant of progressives to walk around with a lighted match just looking for some spilled gasoline. The progressive left always moans for “civility” when in fact true…
