Hope for the Dead
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

Shop all books by Judge Napolitano That God, which ever lives and loves, One God, one law, one element, And one far-off divine event, To which the whole creation moves. —Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) When America was in its infancy and struggling to find a culture and frustrated at governance from Great Britain, the word most frequently uttered in pamphlets and editorials and sermons was not “safety” or “taxes” or “peace”; it was “freedom.” And two intolerable acts of Parliament assaulting freedom broke the bonds with the mother country irreparably, precipitating the Revolution. The first was the Stamp Act of … Continue reading

D.C.’s Own Khashoggi Moment
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

We have President Trump tweeting and getting jiggy with the Saudi’s in his promise-breaking veto of Congress’s hard-won vote to end the US support, munitions, supplies and military leadership in the Saudi decimation of Yemen. I mean after 4 years, haven’t the profits already been made?  Congress thought so, and in a rare move, actually did their job. Trump’s advisors, Pompous and Butthead, apparently think otherwise. The US-Saudi hand-in-hand, hand-in-glove, and head-up-ass relationship is embarrassing, shameful and evil.  It stinks of old colonialism and greed, with a whiff of wobbly wicked petrodollar.  It is about murder, and the cover-up of … Continue reading

Can Modern Man Re-Create
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

The Notre Dame cathedral in Paris isn’t the first historically significant church to go up in smoke. The Basilica of Saint Paul’s Outside-the-Walls — after standing for more than 1,400 years — was almost totally destroyed by fire in 1823. It housed the tomb of the Apostle Paul, and was a major basilica, second only to St Peter’s as a pilgrimage site. Thanks to a construction worker, the church was accidently set on fire. Its destruction was a great disaster at the time, and an international appeal went out for assistance in its reconstruction. The world responded and the church was rebuilt … Continue reading

Washington’s Biggest Fairy Tale
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

The arrest of Julian Assange has produced rapturous cheering from the American political elite. Hillary Clinton declared that Assange “must answer for what he has done.” Unfortunately, Assange’s arrest will do nothing to prevent the vast majority of conniving politicians and bureaucrats from paying no price for deceiving the American public. “Truth will out” is a phrase that is routinely recited to keep Americans paying and obeying. Politicians and editorial writers toss this phrase out to simmer down any fears that the government might be conspiring against the people. Actually, “truth will out” is the biggest fairy tale in Washington. The … Continue reading

Leaked Wikileaks Doc Reveals US Military Use
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

As most of you reading this will know, Julian Assange was recently dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy. Assange has long been subjected to ridicule and character assassination by the Deep State owned mainstream media, and for one reason, it’s the same reason they’ve been wanting to snatch him up for so long. It’s because for years he has been sharing information that the global elite around the world did not want him to share. He’s been publishing information that threatens various elitist, corporate, and political interests around the globe as well as information showing just how much the public is … Continue reading

Is China Being Framed?
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state. Noam Chomsky. I was researching Chinese censorship when–irony of ironies–I fell afoul of American censorship, providing an opportunity to update you on the state of the art under both regimes, starting at home, with the recent attempt to frame the President for crimes he did not commit. Like many attempts to frame people, events and nations–Vietnam, Iraq, 9/11, JFK, Bin Laden–it was a State hoax, a falsehood deliberately fabricated to masquerade as truth . An atrocity story sustained by artful censorship and loud, proud, bold and brassy propaganda. An … Continue reading

Notre Dame
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

What malice kindled all-consuming fire Vanquishing gift of faith and hope and love? Did indifference provoke holy ire For now flakes of ash like a dying dove Descend swiftly to consecrated earth As a bitter remembrance of things past. Yet even if death does come so does birth Of the true cathedral that has been cast Not lovingly made from wood, glass and stone Nor a blessed relic of a crown of thorn But in God’s creations of flesh and bone Holy light reflects in sacred tears born …..Falling now drop by drop upon the heart …..Comes wisdom through grace … Continue reading

Mayor Pete and the Crackup of Christianity
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

Shop all books by Pat Buchanan “(T)here is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so,” said Hamlet, who thereby raised some crucial questions: Is moral truth subjective? Does it change with changing times and changing attitudes? Or is there a higher law, a permanent law, God’s law, immutable and eternal, to which man’s law should conform? Are, for example, the Ten Commandments of the Old Testament, Christian teaching and natural law unchangeable and applicable to all men at all times? Or can some of the 10 be consigned to the dumpster of antiquated moral prohibitions? This question … Continue reading

The Fleeting Feeling of Freedom
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

Every now and then, I do something “risky” and illegal, to remind myself what it was like when we were still relatively free. I roll one of my old bikes out of the garage and take it for a ride around the backroads near my place without a helmet on. This used to be legal, once upon a time — on the sound premise that it was your head to break and so your business to risk it. Then it became the business of busybodies and control freaks — aka, “the government,” which passes laws that assert the contrary. It is important … Continue reading

Populism Hits an Establishment Roadblock
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

Far be it from me to put down the French populist Right, given my respect for many of its representatives and for the Rassemblement National (formerly the National Front) in particular. But even given the shrinking favorability ratings of French President Emmanuel Macron and his République en Marche party, populists are not exactly surging in France or in most of Western Europe. One might have to exclude from this generalization Mediterranean countries with unstable economies and frequently rotating governments—for example, Italy and Spain, where the populist, anti-immigration parties Lega Nord and Vox have made dramatic headway. But in Belgium, Holland, … Continue reading

Gun Controllers Demand Banks Refuse Service
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

Anti-gun activists and politicians are doing everything they can to effectively disarm the public. Already this year, extreme and unconstitutional gun control measures have been proposed at the state and federal levels. There has been a lot of pushback, thankfully: a growing number of counties (and even some states) have declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries and are refusing to enforce gun-control laws that infringe on the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Sheriffs in Washington, Colorado, and New Mexico have publicly stated they will refuse to enforce new gun control legislation – and some are even willing to be jailed for their defiance. Two extreme gun control bills have already … Continue reading

Kim Foxx DID Interfere in Jussie’s Case
Thu, 18 Apr 2019 04:01:00 +0000

State’s Attorney Kim Foxx continued to meddle in the Jussie Smollett case after ‘recusing’ herself, calling him a ‘washed up celeb who lied to cops’ and telling the prosecutor she had handed the case over to that he was being overcharged  just two weeks before the case was dropped, new documents have revealed. In messages sent weeks after she recused herself from the case Foxx wrote to Joe Magats, the prosecutor who she had handed the case over to, and appeared to compare Smollett’s charges to those leveled at another celebrity defendant, R. Kelly. She said: ‘Pedophile with 4 victims … Continue reading
