The Left Knows How To Create and Sustain Outrage…Where Is Conservative Outrage?
It is happening again: the Left takes an incident that can match their distorted views of AmeriKKKa and push it on a daily basis to foment outrage and sympathy for their distorted views. The Left has taken the Trayvon Martin case in Florida and pumped it into a myth symbolizing – in their opinion – “everything that is wrong with America.” Protest rallies thousands of | Read More »
The Bedside Manner of Obama, and Whether America Lives or Dies
“In a dying civilization, political prestige is the reward not of the shrewdest diagnostician, but of the man with the best bedside manner. It is the decoration conferred on mediocrity by ignorance.” from A Coffin For Dimitrios by Eric Ambler in 1939. Over 70 years have passed since British novelist, engineer, and Lieutenant Colonel Eric Ambler wrote those words. Ambler knew the pessimistic work of | Read More »
Peter Pan Presidencies and The Leftist Lost Boys: Understanding Leftist Rage Against America By Examining Kulcheral Clues
A chill froze my marrow many moons ago in the 1980’s, when Toys ‘R’ Us produced a commercial with an adult male singing what could be construed as a funeral dirge for America’s future: I don’t want to grow up. I’m a Toy’s R US kid.There’s a million things at Toy’s R US that I can play with.From trains to planes and video games,it’s the | Read More »
Our American Soldiers: Forgotten and Treated With Contempt
This morning I happened to see one of our soldiers dressed in desert camouflage at a restaurant. Waves of thoughts suddenly coalesced, and they began with the quote from the New Testament: “There is no greater love than that one lays down his life for his friends.” How much greater is that love, when a soldier lays down his life for strangers in a foreign | Read More »
MAObama’s Coördinated Media Blitz for Hell-th Care: Coming Soon!
You know this is coming: leftist pundits and politicians have signaled that between now and the State of the Union Address there will be another media blitz, like the failed one last summer, to convince everyone that the Hell-th Care Bill is a really, really, really good idea for America. Like the one last summer, there will be a coördinated media extravaganza pushing some specific | Read More »
Murder In Chicago vs. Henry Gates: The Silence and The Fury from the White House
You might recall the NObama moment when he decided to interfere in the arrest of Henry Gates, his professor friend who was arrested for bad-mouthing a policeman, when a neighbor thought that somebody was breaking into Gates’ house. It turned out that Gates himself had broken into his house because he had lost his keys. Gates over-reacted when the police arrived, and went into racial | Read More »
Hillary Clinton for President: 2012 and The Gravity Of Discontent.
I have been wondering for a few weeks about Hillary Clinton and what she – and Billy Jeff – might be thinking when they see NObama’s numbers attracted by the increasing gravity of discontent. An article about her campaign fund still having several million dollars in it also hit my suspicious antennae! (The article naively wondered what was going on: what could be the purpose?) | Read More »
The Byzantine Nature of the Diplomatic Disaster with North Korea: The Kims, The Clintons, and Obama
To begin: keep in mind that the North Korean government does nothing “nice” unless they have been offered a bribe. So what did they receive, or at least hope to gain, from releasing the 2 journalists? News reports have detailed that the North Koreans specifically requested (demanded?) Bill Clinton as a negotiator: this alone gives them the appearance of equivalence with a superpower. For Clinton, | Read More »
The Children Are Watching, Mr. Obama!
My students are 6th through 8th Graders at a Catholic school: most are of average intelligence, some are brilliant, some are dull. What unites them is their ability to spot an unqualified phony: most were appalled by the presidential election result in November, but they tried to be optimistic. As the months have gone by, they began asking me more and more questions about why | Read More »
