It’s NOT a ‘Police Problem’

on June 30, 2020, 7:05 AM / in Opinion

Democrats are disgracefully blame-shifting their epic urban failures by claiming it’s all a “police problem.” After the unjustified death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, leftists and their mainstream media outlets did what they do best — used one death as political fodder to support their agenda, which launched a murder, assault, burning, and looting campaign nationwide. They also launched a national movement vilifying ALL […]

What the contrasting lives and actions of two men tell us about the revisionist desecration of our legacy of Liberty. “The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capacity, must always exalt the just pride of Patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations.” —George Washington (1796) “Juneteenth” (19 June) is an observation of the date in […]

Talking With a Democrat About ‘Systemic Racism’

on June 15, 2020, 8:53 AM / in Opinion

The cognitive versus emotive interpretation of events often creates the disconnect regarding race-relations between Right and Left. “If the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of mankind apply than to the sense of this difference?” John Adams (1775) Two […]

Antifa Is the White Radical Organizer of Black Urban Violence

on June 4, 2020, 7:57 AM / in Opinion

Antifa’s bond is radical ideology — the same model that binds Islamist terrorist networks. “The mobs of the great cities add just so much to the support of pure government as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people, which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is […]

After tens of millions of Americans have lost their jobs, what if there are not significant increases of infections as states reopen? “Are we disposed to be of the number of those, who having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it might cost, I […]

“The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave.” Patrick Henry (1775) For the last two months, I have been, initially at least, amused by the now-ubiquitous adjectives and nouns invoked to describe a large swath of Americans — the “heroic heroes” across our nation. Who knew we had so many? […]
