Genocide is the systematic and deliberate attempt to extinguish a race, ethnic group, social group or religion. After the most well documented and systematic act of genocide in recorded History, the so-called Final Solution to the Jewish Problem perpetrated by the death cult known as the Third Reich, the surviving Jewish people adopted the motto, “Never Again.” They had been the target of countless pogroms | Read More »
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 »

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.

Or that they have failed | Read More »
