The rioting at the Capitol building on 6 January has cost the conservative movement dearly. It has provided the Left with the narrative they wanted, a story of violent, dangerous thugs who present a threat to the American values that those on the Left suddenly hold dear. It has given them an excuse to target… Continue reading Fool Me Twice, Shame on Me —
When I boil water in my tea kettle, the steam builds up until the whistle blows. If the steam had no outlet, the steam would keep boiling up until the kettle exploded. The American kettle has been heating up since the overdose death of George Floyd on 25 May 2020. It had a full head… Continue reading The Kettle Will Boil Over Shortly
It’s time to think about holiday presents, and there is no better gift for a fellow deplorable than a conservative book, and no more enjoyable choice than a novel about a left-wing dystopia. Paula T. Weiss’s The Antifan Girlfriend fits the bill. (Full disclosure: I admit to some bias as the author is a friend.) … Continue reading The Antifan Girlfriend- The Dystopian Novel All Conservatives Need to Read
There are a variety of arguments against Donald Trump, but one that has gained currency, promoted in particular by conservative pundit David French, is that it is immoral to vote for our incumbent president.

The most important thing is that he is a good and decent… Continue reading Biden is an Honorable Man
Current Democrat political actions are shattering our “social contract.” This concept, developed by enlightenment philosophers, strongly influenced America’s founders when establishing our republican government. One of those philosophers, John Locke, an author popular with Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton, among others, theorized that in a state of nature each man lives in perfect… Continue reading Smashing the Social Contract
Democrats have been coy about their relationship to the violent groups rioting in our cities. CNN, a faithful echo chamber for the Democrat Party, downplays the violence by describing it as “fiery but mostly peaceful.” Kamala Harris, who will apparently be president in a Biden Administration, has willfully ignored the violence. In an interview with… Continue reading Richmond Democrats Embrace Crime, no Punishment.
Young people are very much in the news today, marching, petitioning, and yes, sometimes rioting. They want a better, fairer world, and there’s nothing wrong with that. In the past, it has often been the young, unjaded by experience, who brought about beneficial change. Alexander Hamilton was 22 when he became George Washington’s aide; Thomas… Continue reading What is a Hero? Look to 9/11 for models.
The confrontations taking place in urban America's streets nightly are still new. But there have been battles taking place in our civic institutions for some time, and we are clearly losing that war. Right now, there’s a critical skirmish taking place in northern Virginia, among the Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustees -- of… Continue reading Shh! The Battle of the Fairfax Public Libraries is raging!
