I am shocked that seven whole years have passed since September 11th, since of course, the memories of the day are so vivid that one would be forgiven for thinking that one only just lived through it. The vividness keeps the memories fresh. It keeps the outrage fresh as well and one should be outraged anew when remembering 9/11. Outraged for the innocents who were | Read More »
On the aniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King’s historic speech
Once again the King Obama wants to share in other leaders glory. With his taking words from other’s speeches and comparing himself to other historic leaders it seems Mr. Obama has trouble defining himself. His comments about ordinary Americans is only a snippet into his character. Over and over again he and his wife repeat the words **Ordinary Americans. What do they mean by those | Read More »
5 Million Jobs?
I must of been sleeping when we decided to elect a CEO of a very large corporation that is going to create 5 million jobs. Now, lets elect a president that will keep our country safe, a real American that has no problem displaying the American flag on his lapel, an American that if asked to go to war will not hasetate to flex his | Read More »
*Bad Candidate? The Media is Soaking You in One!!
*I will probably do more than one blog this month….90 days to election and the needle is swinging right. Here’s some nuggets to chew on…. From Obama’s book “Dreams from my Father” Obama harbors negative racial stereotypes as Reverend Wright, his mentor for 20 years, as Obama states in pages 98-104 “Black nationalism, a steady attack on white race would be justified if it could | Read More »
Bracing Piece by Simon Montefiore on the Ukrainian “Holodomor” (The Holocaust by Hunger)
There have been a couple of anniversaries of note in Ukraine lately. On the more pleasant side, this past weekend there were ceremonies in Kyiv to mark the 1020th anniversary of the acceptance of Christianity by Volodymyr, prince of the Kyivan Rus. In 988, Volodymyr accepted Christianity from Byzantine missionaries, and also issued an “executive order” to his subjects in Kyiv to do likewise. The | Read More »
The Myth Of American Declinism
Taken on anew by John Bolton. A very good read. It’s reassuring to see that there is pushback against the notion that the decline of American power is just around the corner. As I have argued in the past, we have seen a version of this argument pop up over and over in our recent history . . . and each time, it turns out | Read More »
David Frum’s Self Denial
My new book White Protestant Nation: The Rise of the American Conservative Movement places conservatism within the big picture of modern American history. The book traces the origins of modern conservatism to the 1920s. It explains why conservatism triumphed in the late twentieth century and why it is has fallen into disarray under the leadership of President George W. Bush. The review of my book | Read More »

It’s Unbelievable That This Is Actually Necessary . . .
But Megan McArdle continues to patiently explain facts about the life of Milton Friedman to a bunch of people (see her comments) who refuse to get the point and who draw the ridiculous conclusion that because Milton Friedman met with Augusto Pinochet for less than an hour and advised him to institute liberalized economic policies, Friedman is somehow responsible for the fact that Pinochet’s regime | Read More »
