Since We ‘Good Men’ Have Done Nothing

By Dave Merrick

Lots of good reads begin with an old saying. Here then is one very relevant and applicable old saying:

“20 years experience cannot be supplanted by one year’s experience - 20 times.”

Angry Mobs Erasing American History

By Judi McLeod

It wasn’t God, like the song said,  who made Honky Tonk Angels.  Nor is it God Almighty who is whipping up faux fury over statues that supposedly represent racism.  Barack Hussein Obama, through Black Lives Matter, did that.

The Technology of Yesteryear

By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh

The world around us is changing vertiginously. It’s not that I am getting older and my perspective has slowed down; technology and the way we live are being fundamentally transformed under our own eyes, but we are too busy to notice.

From eclipse to the apocalyptic

By A. Dru Kristenev

The following may be a shock to urban centrists who think everything revolves around large population centers.

For some reason beyond my ken, I seem to end up in the epicenter of cultural change and, in some instances, chaos.

America, Where Are You?

By Judi McLeod

While media arguments over which side was to blame for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia one week ago today, a total of six police officers were shot in Florida and Pennsylvania overnight. 

“Three people were in custody Friday night, including a “strong suspect,” after one police officer was fatally shot and another suffered grave injuries in Kissimmee, Fla., south of Orlando. (Fox News, Aug. 19, 2017)

Looking for a new Career?

By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser

With the current “War on Monuments” just getting underway, new and lucrative jobs will be coming up soon, for example, for good stone masons and foundry workers.

After all, what is going to replace all the well-crafted monuments in the public squares of nearly every town in the country that may soon get torn down? Surely, these century-old town squares can’t be left empty, devoid of any visible memorials to the new age of revisionist thinking!

TRUMP’S ENEMIES ARE A CONFEDERACY OF COWARDS

By Jeff Crouere

A funny thing happened on the way to the Trump impeachment, the Russia story has vanished. Despite months of hyperventilating about the President being involved in nefarious “Russian collusion,” no evidence was actually produced. Despite a biased media, a biased special counsel and a legal team selected from the donor roll of the Democratic Party, Donald Trump is still President and still claiming that the whole campaign is a “witch hunt.”

It’s jelly-knees Mitt Romney, not President Trump who should apologize to the American people

By Judi McLeod

It took former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney almost a full week after tragic events in Charlottesville to sink his shiv in President Donald Trump’s back.

Romney did not comment on President Trump’s condemnation of violence on “many sides” on any one of the six days that have passed since the Charlottesville rally gone riot cost one woman her life and left 38 or more others injured, some critically.

Co-writing a Book 101:  Never Trust a Co-writer Who’s a Journalist

By Judi McLeod

By today’s goosey-loosey publishing standards, anybody—with even the slightest claim to fame— can write a book with all but a guarantee that it will be gobbled up by their bored lessers whose moment in the sun never seems to come.

Political books draw the same kind of audience as television viewers who contend “I saw it on t.v. so it MUST be true.”

Mainstream Media’s Insane New Trump Narrative

By Judi McLeod

The Russia collusion conspiracy against President Donald Trump wasn’t working.  So the progressive left/mainstream media cabal began writing the president they live to hate into into another narrative, one that would be so stunning, it would make us forget that they dropped the Russian ruse.

Unite the Right Protesters Hoodwinked by their Own Leader

By Judi McLeod

By now even the most gullible of the attendees who flooded Charlottesville for the ‘Unite the Right’  Rally must know that they’ve been had.  And not just by the condemning mainstream media and the ANTIFA enemy.

This should go down as:’Don’t Sign Up for Every Protest Movement 101’.

More Stuff We Can’t Blame On Trump

By Dave Merrick

Despite what lamestream media might be trying to hammer into our heads right now, the latest installment of America’s ongoing racial nightmare is simply more of number 44’s malignant ‘legacy’ rearing its ugly head. As I have documented in several past articles, he and his wife went out of their way to keep the racial pot stirred. And the froth of boiling hatred we are now experiencing, as common sense should be screaming to us all, has little to do with a paltry seven months of Donald Trump.

Magazine accuses Trump of needing “Flattering News”

By Judi McLeod

NYLON Magazine, the bible of ‘pop culture news for today’s young women’, is all in a flap because President Donald Trump “gets briefed with flattering news about himself twice a day”.

How stupefying to the sensibilities of NYLON editors that there is enough “flattering news” about Trump with which to brief him not once—but twice—a day, or that some news sites would happily sign up for the privilege of being included in the briefing folder.

The Charlottesville Rally

August 11th and 12th, Charlottesville, Virginia—The “Unite the Right” rally, a/k/a the “Charlottesville rally”.  Just another rally, maybe?  Presumably, the First Amendment of the Constitution explicitly provides for the ‘right of the people to peaceably assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances’.  Oh, but wait, one very crucial point in all this verbiage, is the key word “peaceably” - inclined or disposed to avoid strife or dissension; not argumentative or hostile.

Pelosi calls on Paul Ryan to remove all Confederate statues from Capitol - but they weren’t a proble

At one time, Nancy Pelosi was a very powerful Speaker of the House.  Her tenure ended as her party decided to embrace its worst instincts - a move that eventually reduced it to a small, marginalized, bi-coastal collection of far-left crackpots.  They have little or no traction in most of the country, and they’re at their lowest level of overall power since before the Great Depression.

Does VW’s Atlas hold the company’s future on its shoulders?

Volkswagen’s first all new SUV since the Tiguan is here, and it’s bigger, more angular - and more modern in VW’s inventory, than the Tiguan and the Touareg.  Will it be enough to help turn around any negative public impressions there may be coming out of the diesel kerfuffle of the past couple of years?

Spider peptides battle superbugs and cancer

As antibiotic resistance rises and fears over superbugs grow, scientists are looking for new treatment options. One area of focus is antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), which could someday be an alternative to currently prescribed antibiotics, many of which are becoming increasingly useless against some bacteria. Now, a team reports in ACS Chemical Biology that they have improved the antimicrobial — and anticancer — properties of an AMP from a spider.
