    If It Isn’t America First What Is It?

    The very words “America First” have gained a social stigma accorded few things in American History; things such as “McCarthyism,” or “America for Americans,” or “Reverse Discrimination.”  These words that have been made politically incorrect by the media wing of the Progressive Republocrat Party. The original America First Committee was painted with the broad brush of anti-Americanism for opposing America’s entrance into WW II.  The | Read More »

    Is the Culture War Over ?

    Knowing that there is no fool like an old fool, the seasoned citizen trying to prove he hasn’t lost his grip on America’s rapidly changing culture quips says to his grandchild, “I’m not exactly your father’s Oldsmobile.”  His grandchild looks at him like he is a dithering old codger and says, “What’s an Oldsmobile?” If the latest tech wonders seem more like science fiction to | Read More »

    The Politics of Easter

    I love my country.  I consider myself a patriot.  I believe that the United States has provided more people with more freedom and more opportunity than any other nation that has ever existed.  I think the United States has been blessed by God. Having said all that I must admit that I am only a citizen of this country in a transitory and momentary way | Read More »

    Jettison the Empire to Save the Republic 2015

    In 1951 President Harry Truman ignored the advice of General Douglas MacArthur who rightly perceived that it was China that was the real threat. Truman fired MacArthur and doomed American troops to a limited war which dragged on for two more years.  Then when General Ridgeway and his meat grinder defense had bled the Chinese white, President Eisenhower refused to mount an offense and claim | Read More »

    Light One Candle

    Over the years I have used these articles to chronicle America’s slide from a nation based on limited government, personal liberty and economic opportunity to one based on an all-powerful central government, an apathetic public bought off with entitlements, and a regulated economy in free-fall to stagnation if not contraction. The professional politicians, their casino capitalist cronies and the media/academic alliance that justifies and promotes | Read More »

    Does the Sun Set in the West

    I have taught the history of Western Civilization for many years.  I praise God that I have taught at institutions that allowed me to teach this history without the disdain that is often heaped upon what some call Eurocentric culture.  Personally I believe that Western Civilization which may have peaked before the beginning of our current Long War, brought humanity to the highest point so | Read More »

    Chicago on the Potomac

    Back in the Dream Time, elders were honored because of their accumulated knowledge, if Pops knew a better way to saddle horses that knowledge helped Junior since he saddled horses.  Today if Pops knows how to tune-up cars what good is that when cars don’t need to be tuned-up anymore?  Now the old are relegated to extolling their own relevance while exclaiming, “I’ve never seen | Read More »

    A Rose By Any Other Name

    The main lesson we learn from History is that we don’t learn from History.  The lack of historical perspective is, I believe, one of the major contributing factors in America’s current state. People don’t realize that all of these novel fixes our collectivist leaders are shoving down our throats with regard to health care have been tried multiple times before.  Or that they have failed | Read More »

    We Need More of Moore

    The Ninth Amendment to the Constitution states that, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” This past Sunday Chris Wallace interviewed Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.  Chief Justice Moore is once again in the news for standing up for the rule of law, limited government, and the viability of the Constitution | Read More »

    Huge Hoax Holds Humanity Hostage

    Wow! The Man-made Global Warming Hoax is a Hoax.  Who saw this coming except anyone investing five minutes examining the scientific evidence from both sides?  Or anyone remembering this is the same crowd of alarmists    who warned of a new ice age in the 1970s.  Let’s see, they wouldn’t buy the Brooklyn Bridge but they’re willing to mortgage the farm for the Golden Gate.   Now | Read More »
