The irony of reading Andrew Sullivan denouncing the racism of the black Hebrews and attacks of the media on the Covington kids on the receiving end of it reminds one that the fellow who coined the phrase "Christionist" and spent years going after Sarah Palin is not lost on me. But I can't help but … Continue reading Non Tweets 1/30 Andrew Sullivan’s Covington Irony, SOTU, Guns #1, Guns #2 & SABLE Washington opens with a win
As I mentioned in an earlier post last weekend I starting watching the classic 1952 TV series Victory at Sea for the first time. That might be a bit of a surprise to some of you, both my grey beard and the fact that my father served in the Pacific in World War 2 would … Continue reading Victory at Sea History before the Culture Wars
By: Pat Austin SHREVEPORT — Piggy-backing on Pete’s post in reference to Stacy McCain’s post, I feel obliged to chime in on that conversation for a moment. Both Pete and Stacy referenced Tucker Carlson and his discussion of the deteriorating social fabric and I’m all in agreement on that. No discord here on what either … Continue reading On Muses and Journalism
Yesterday I was coming into the house after bringing my youngest to work. He was scheduled for 5 pm to close but was called in early. He had been offered five extra hours but decided on taking only three.

The most powerful people in the United States are those that declare themselves to be offended; if they are of the liberal political persuasion, that is. In most cases, they will be granted immediate attention by the liberal media, and whatever offends them will be immediately banned. This is the end result of over two … Continue reading The perpetually offended have inherited the earth
During the past two weeks I saw two Conservative friends post rather derogatory items about Libertarians on Facebook, and Libertarians do the same about Conservatives. That is just a small sampling of what I‘ve seen since I’ve been on social media. At times it appears there is an all out war between the two sides … Continue reading Why do Conservatives and Libertarians squabble so much?
This article is most likely hypothetical because it appears that the Republican Party’s chances of maintaining control of the House of Representatives have increased since the Justice Kavanaugh debacle, and the Senate was never really in play. I could be mistaken because most of the polls are unreliable and the media coverage is deeply biased. … Continue reading Democrats retaking the House would be a Pyrrhic Victory
I consider Gary Oldman to be one of the finest character actors. Because of that I was looking forward to watching his portrayal of Winston Churchill, a role in which earned Oldman an Oscar. I am aware of Hollywood’s far left bias and well earned reputation for completely disregarding actual history when making a movie … Continue reading Movie Review – Darkest Hour
Based on the mass protests, the despicable conduct during the confirmation hearings, and the shameful smear campaign waged against Judge Kavanaugh, it is safe to say progressives are outraged that President Trump has so far placed two Justices on the Supreme Court. The framers of the Constitution and those who ratified it would be completely … Continue reading If We Still Followed the Constitution Few Would Care Who is on the Supreme Court
I don’t believe there is a more apt label for our current political climate than calling it a circus. There is no better example of this circus than the entire confirmation process for Judge Kavanaugh. This circus began with the protests that erupted even before President Trump announced the name of his nominee, continued with … Continue reading Blame Saul Alinsky For Our Current Political Circus
Yesterday I spent my day off at the WQPH 89.3 FM Booth at Leominster's annual Johnny Appleseed festival held each year in honor of the most famous person ever born there. I spent the day promoting my book Hail Mary the Perfect Protestant (and Catholic) Prayer (available here) , my radio show Your Prayer Intentions … Continue reading Chick-Fil-A Conquers the Johnny Appleseed Festival in Leominster MA
Yesterday I saw the news story about the Sesame Street writer who claimed that he wrote Bert and Ernie as Gay, Sesame Street's response (which I was only half joking as being "no their not, please don't stop buying our stuff" #rephrased Please please parents don't stop buying our stuff https://t.co/zgIZ6fxMw6 — Peter Ingemi (@DaTechGuyblog) … Continue reading Sesame Street outs the Left’s Identify Crisis and the Human Cost of a Post Christian Society.
Saturday morning I spent an hour watching the Google video that Breitbart put out. If you haven't watched it yet it's here There are several things that struck me about this video: The least important observation is that the appearance of the crowd completely confirms the stereotype that people have to tech types which by … Continue reading My Takeaways from the Breitbart Google Video
Fr. Michael Harvey: I was trying to make it easier for you. Maggie Harvey: I didn’t want it made easier, I wanted you to say ‘No’. Cracker My Brother’s Keeper 1995 Yesterday Stacy McCain wrote something that really struck me: There is a reason why slut-shaming exists. If sluts are not shamed — if promiscuity … Continue reading The Modern Courage, Truth and Friend Deficit
I’ve noticed lately that fewer and fewer people know how behave in a respectful manner while in public. I know I must not be the first person to make this observation and I’m willing to bet that a great many others have made the same observation in recent times. There was an incident this past … Continue reading The Rude are Inheriting the Earth
