My book The Left is Seldom Right (New English Review Press, 2011) provoked numerous letters to me from former Leftists who praised it and did not avoid confronting the reality that Nazi Germany and the USSR were close allies for […]
Much to their detriment, Americans like to ignore the rest of the world. Accordingly, they do not appreciate reminders that, like it or not, the rest of the world is out there. Worse, some of its “leading leaders” have rabies and “bite.” Aware of the provocation, […]
Orv Burns is pictured left next to a patchwork quilt his late dear wife Joyce made for him composed of of military emblems. Orv and George Strong, right, were regular attendees of Charleston Baptist Church in Bremerton, Washington, until they passed away. Orv […]

American Gothic (1922), by Grant Wood.
The American Dream, once an endless stream of possibilities, is today guaranteed only to those born of primogeniture and entail. For the industrious, this will never kill the moral resolve due diligence employs as […]
“The writers against religion, whilst they oppose every system, are wisely careful never to set up any of their own.” — Edmund Burke (1729-97), A Vindication of Natural Society: or, a View of the Miseries and Evils arising to Mankind from every Species of […]
The evening of May 1, 2015 was the occasion of the Houston Area Pastors Council annual benefit dinner. It was an interesting night focusing heavily on the court battle over a so called ‘equal rights ordinance” rammed through the Houston City Council in 2014.

It is risky to take the rickety boat from Africa to Europe. Nevertheless, masses embark on a journey to a dream that dissipates once reached. Unshaken by the perils, the goal remains to enter an assumed paradise. The participants put themselves in harm’s way and antagonize […]
I consider myself an across-the-board conservative but of the paleo sort, therefore I tend to disagree with mainstream conservatives on a few issues, most notably foreign policy. I say this to indicate that I am not a single issue voter. I have several issues that I prioritize in importance when evaluating a candidate. A discussion […]

We just hobbled through another tax season. The excruciating excursion into the ridiculous thicket that is the roughly 75,000 page tax code.
All for the privilege of giving federal, state and local governments record amounts of our money.
A 2011 study said we then wasted […]
We have all heard complaints about the “do nothing congress” for the past several presidential administrations. Indeed, we frequently see that congressional approval numbers flirt with historically low positive rates. This has occurred whether the majority of congress has belonged to democrats or republicans.
The American […]
Net Neutralityremains an omni-directional terrible idea.
Here in the United States, Net Neutrality exponentially increases the government’s ability to tax the Internet. Starting with the 17.4% Universal Service Fund (USF) tax. Which goes up automatically every calendar quarter. And goes up each and every time three unelected Federal […]
The author feels more comfortable shooting at the Kitsap Rifle and Revolver Club than anywhere else, due to its level of safety and expertise.
One sneaky new way gun-control activists are taking away gun rights is by forcing gun ranges to shut down. By using vague […]
Michelle Malkin said about what happened to Rachel Alexander:
“Make no mistake: This is just another nasty battle in the Left’s long war to marginalize, demonize, and criminalize conservative dissent. The selective protection of free speech is unconscionable. The freedom to blog is under assault on so […]
When I agree with someone on a political issue and I see him getting a bit carried away with his rhetoric, it’s easy to overlook, but when I disagree with someone on an issue, especially when we have essentially opposite opinions on a heated emotional issue, excesses of rhetoric really rub me the wrong way.

Republicans! To the barricades, mes enfants!
As The National Journal noted late last year, in an article entitled It’s Hard Out There For A Bay Area Conservative, “‘Conservatives in Northern California ‘have been beaten into submission,’ says Chris Pareja, host of a weekly political television show […]
