Deconstructing a Culture

By Tom McCaffrey

The tearing down of Confederate monuments was sure to be a divisive issue. Why raise it now, when the people of the United States are as divided as they have been at any time since—the Civil War? The question answers itself. It was raised now precisely because it would be divisive. But to say this is to call into question the motives of those who have raised the issue. Indeed.

Bannon the Bombthrower

By Megan Barth

If you think they are going to give your country back without a fight, you’re sadly mistaken. —Steve Bannon

The GOP establishment hasn’t learned much since November,  but looking towards next November, its important to note that moderates do not win elections unless they campaign as conservatives.  If the GOP was built by moderates, the “Party of Reagan” wouldn’t exist.  On Friday morning, prior to Bannon’s departure, Moderate Mitt Romney spouted off yet again, giving more soundbytes to his fellow Democrats. Lest we forget that his father sabotaged Barry Goldwater?

Trump must question Abbas-PLO commitment to peace with Israel

By David Singer

The planned visit to the Middle East at the end of August by President Trump’s Senior Advisor Jared Kushner, Special Envoy for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy Dina Powell – presents a wonderful opportunity for them to test the commitment of the PLO and its leader Mahmoud Abbas to concluding a peace treaty with Israel.

The Charter’s Notwithstanding Clause and Canada’s border crisis

By Arthur Weinreb

So many illegals have been walking into Canada lately, even Justin Trudeau is starting to worry. Yesterday Trudeau said if he could talk to “asylum seekers,” he would tell them, there is no advantage to just walking into Canada. He added those seeking refugee status will be subjected to a “rigorous screening process” and “our rules, our principles and our laws apply to everyone.” Cue the laughter. (CBC, Aug. 20, 2017)

Morning Joe notices the DNC can’t raise any money - ‘what does that say about the Democratic Party?’

By Robert Laurie

You would think, if President Trump is as despised as Democrats claim, they’d be enjoying a resurgence. The faithful should be extremely energized, and the money should be pouring in as they build up a war chest designed to support their party’s efforts in 2018 and 2020.  That’s not happening.  The DNC is running on fumes and they’re having a hard time convincing anyone to donate.

You don’t have to be fascist to oppose immigration

By Colin Alexander

There are plenty of good reasons to oppose immigration into Canada. Presumably a man of the Left, Environmentalist David Suzuki opposes immigration: “Canada is full! Although it’s the second largest country in the world,” he says, “our useful area has been reduced. Our immigration policy is disgusting: We plunder southern countries by depriving them of future leaders, and we want to increase our population to support economic growth. It’s crazy!”

NYPost: Looks like Wasserman Schultz’s jailed IT staffers were selling sensitive and classified stol

By Robert Laurie

You’re probably aware that, on Thursday, a federal Grand Jury indicted former Wasserman Schultz IT aide Imran Awan on four felony counts.  Most agree that the charges - which include bank fraud, making false statements, and conspiracy - are just a placeholder.  The investigation into a much larger set of crimes is ongoing and it’s virtually impossible to find anyone who thinks these few meager charges will be the end of the story.

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.

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)

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.

Way Past Time to Let Congress Enjoy Obamacare

Every presidential administration reaches a pivot point. Many observers thought Trump’s came when Anthony Scaramucci walked in the White House door. Others thought it came 10 days later when Scaramucci walked out the door.

Historically black newspaper from Ben Carson’s hometown: He’s just a ‘House Negro’

Liberals show you who they really are when they think the environment will permit it. The Michigan Chronicle is a historically black Detroit-based newspaper that has not always been down-the-line pro-Democrat. But I guess there are certain things you have to believe if you’re going to qualify as authentically black these days, and one the most accomplished black men ever to grow up in the city of Detroit appears to no longer qualify:

Quo Vadis the Arab Tsunami (a.k.a. “the Arab Spring”)?

By Yoram Ettinger -- World

Where is the Arab Middle East heading following the 2010-2017 disintegration of Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen and Sudan; the toppling of several Arab regimes; the estimated toll of 400,000 fatalities and six million refugees, resulting from intra-Arab conflicts; the proliferation of Islamic Sunni terrorism; the unprecedented power-projection surge by Iran’s Shiite Ayatollahs; the approaching Sunni and Shiite terrorist machetes to the throat of the House of Saud and all other pro-US Arab regimes; and the intensified squashing of human rights in every Arab country, all ruled by minority-regimes?

Europe’s Challenges Open the Market for Israel’s Arms Industry

By INSS -- Elai Rettig, Yotam Rosner -- World

In the past few years, the European demand for arms has increased due to the significant security challenges that have developed throughout the continent. This trend has also resulted in a marked increase in Israeli defense exports to European countries, which is expected to continue in the years to come, especially to Eastern Europe. This development requires that Israel act cautiously—among other reasons—in order to avoid a direct diplomatic clash with Russia, which is the primary reason for the current European armament.

Stop Smearing Sebastian Gorka

White House counterterrorism advisor Sebastian Gorka has been the subject of severe criticism in recent months. With the departure of Steve Bannon from the administration, many are calling for Gorka to be fired next. A recent piece in Rolling Stone questioned the validity of his Ph.D. and labeled him something of a neophyte and an extremist. The Forward tied Gorka to a right-wing Hungarian secret society called Vitezi Rend.

Looking for a new Career?

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!

Is It Nuclear War, Viral Epidemic or Azoospermia?

It’s been said that “Those who do not remember history are destined to relive it”. Today, the problem is that none of us seem to remember history, so we’re destined to relive it one way or another. So will our civilization end with a nuclear holocaust? A world-wide viral pandemic? Or, will it be due to azoospermia? Then, whatever happens, we can give our planet back to animals who deserve it more than humans. After all, they only kill to eat!
