In our last episode yours truly suggested that Republican Party “leadership” might be set to betray the electorate and cave in to pressure from the left and the media, which would lead to essentially zero pushback against the present administration, despite candidate promises to the contrary. With the House of Representative’s approval of the so-called […]
When I was growing up, there were two different political types of people. Those that thought Reagan was a genius and Democrats. If you are under the age of 30, there is a myth that surrounds Ronald Reagan. This myth is partly derived from a term you […]
All those that mistakenly entertain the notion that they have not been raped by Bill Cosby, please step forward.
Obama’s dictat to grant amnesty to illegals has its pros and cons. Going beyond these, a question arises: What will happen when the next […]
I am a man more sinned against than sinning. ~ King Lear
But screw your courage to the sticking-place, And we’ll not fail. ~ Lady Macbeth
This is part II of my essay on William Shakespeare (1564 –1616) the great English playwright, poet, and actor, […]
The record of the last century has been assembled with mosaic pieces of horror. This explains inquiries directed at those who, as conscious contemporaries, have witnessed these wrongs. The past’s adults are faced with a question: “What were you doing? How could you allow such […]
A ‘Final Theory’ of God demonstrates that philosophy, science and religion are all saying the same thing, only in different ‘tongues’. But it also shows that they are all seeking the same thing – a supreme law, and a supreme lawmaker.
Science finds a supreme law in […]
By the time I had published my second book in 2007, I had already become weary of the relentless attacks on the notion of God from certain scientists, and an ‘intellectual’ clique of atheists and humanists like Richard Dawkins, AC Grayling, and the late Christopher Hitchens.
Reza Aslan effectively provides us with a perfect Marxist (or at least materialist) analysis of Islam (if not of other religions). Or at least Aslan does so when he’s rationalising or explaining the systematic and large-scale violence done by Muslims almost every single day in at least […]
It is not wisdom but authority that makes law.
During the time men live without a common power to keep them all in awe, they are in that conditions called war; and such a war, as if of every man, against every man.
There once was a land, a magical land, with a chicken in every pot. And in this land, which was called Progressitopia, there were two peoples. There were those who saw the world as it was, and there were those who saw the world as they oh-so-very-much […]
A dubious editorial pastime these days involves political progressives offering their suggestions about rescuing the Republican Party from extinction. Of course, one might be suspicious about a political opponent offering constructive advice in the first place, but even if it is sincere, it would just be suggestions […]
Sly totalitarian challengers exploit our liberties that they abhor.
It is a natural inclination to endeavor to assess threats, whether immediate or only discernible to those with a vision. Such calculations are made in terms of the foe’s inclinations, and physical means. These estimates like to […]
It is bewildering that so many on the right, particularly normally fiscally prudent libertarians, continue to advocate for toll roads. In fact, some are even criticizing conservatives who oppose them. Terri Hall, founder of the group TURF (Texans United for Reform and Freedom), found herself under […]
As mankind continues to relentlessly explore those uncharted regions of his Labyrinth of Horrors, have we any inkling of what we have bartered for his final tumultuous Main Event? We, who have grown anesthetized to the anthropomorphic-spawned tremors of the world, would marvel at the vertigo […]
It is better to be feared than to be loved.
I’m not interested in preserving the status quo; I want to overthrow it.
Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli (1469-1527) was an Italian Renaissance writer, humanist, diplomat, philosopher, historian, and politician, centered in Florence. […]
Scotland votes on independence from the United Kingdom tomorrow. I’ll be rooting very hard for a yes vote.
The primary reason I strongly support Scottish independence is because it will serve as a beautiful illustration of how civilized unions respond when a geographic territory votes to secede. During all the debate leading up to the […]
General Patton was famously quoted back during World War II that it wasn’t the job of the soldier to die for his country; his job was to make the other SOB die for his. Patton was correct, as is Rush Limbaugh when he says that the job of the military is to kill people and […]
Natural law is nothing else but a participation of the eternal law in a rational creature.
. . . [T]he Law of Nature and of Nature’s God.

“Progressives are not in politics to tinker with the existing system although they understand that tinkering and fixing problems along with way will gain them votes. They are in politics to transform the way Americans live…The very grandeur of their ambition turns progressives into zealots.” […]
The Association Game: Is this Ukrainian more like Putin or Poroshenko?
Republican water-carriers can smear the Pauls as isolationists all they want: the notion of the US as “world cop” is still neither constitutional nor moral nor practical.
HERE’S TWO READING ‘GOLDEN OLDIES” WORTH PURCHASING FOR YOURSELF, LEFTIST FRIENDS, AND (PARTICULARLY) FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS:
