We Need More Federal Government!

Did you hear that? That was the sound of my jaw dropping and hitting the floor all the way across the country from where you live. I just read this piece at National Review Online and in addition to my sore jaw, I fell out of my chair and damaged my entire psyche. I am, ... Read More

Where Sheep May Safely Graze…in Northern Virginia

On the occasion of the Democratic Party sweep of Virginia, I want to once again remind readers of one very salient fact: Bureaucracy Kills And at the heart of the changing demographics in Virginia has been the expanding growth of the federal bureaucracy the past 35 years, spilling over the river from the District of Columbia ...

Roy Moore: Here’s a radical idea – let the AL voters decide

While many like to wallow in accusations of scandal and to debate all the details, I am disturbed by how this L'Affaire de Roy Moore represents the latest example of the increasingly compulsive need to nationalize the conducting of state and local elections and to shout to the world how you think those voters should ...

From My CP: I HEART guns and remove MLK from the Public Square

Spring came late here and it was wet, harvest has been wet and now there's snow covering everything.  There's still a lot of corn in the fields.  The garden is done, we finished harvesting my brothers corn Sunday but there's lots of folks here who are still struggling to get their corn out.  Monday it ...

Where Should the Next Shoe Drop in this Sexual Harassment Narrative?

Just about two weeks ago I floated the idea that perhaps there is a subtext to the manner in which the Harvey Weinstein story has been breaking, namely that women can charge and convict men publicly of sex crimes on their word alone. So far only powerful white men stand accused, and this will likely continue, as evidenced by ... Read More

From My CP: Vacation Road Trip, Harvest and the End of “Winter’s Comin'”

I saw snow a few weeks ago, just a few flakes that couldn't stick but it was snow.  That was the point when our two seasons changed from "Winter's Coming" to "Winter's Here."  I put on my long johns as soon as I got home.  We had a little bit of "indian summer" but there's ... Read More

Trump Supporters At The Barricades: How They (YOU!) Can Create A Real Populist Revolution Where They (YOU!) Live

October 30, 2017, by Daniel J. Schultz Radio talk show entrepreneur Laura Ingraham has written another book, "Billionaire at the Barricades: The Populist Revolution from Reagan to Trump."  It is a nice summary of the evolution of our conservative movement from President Ronald Reagan up through the present. But, upon reading the index, critical words ... Read More

Will Virginia MAGA Conservatives Rescue Easy Ed Gillespie?

(Photo: RedState.com) "If you will stop telling lies about us, we will stop telling the truth about you" (This remark wasn't appropriated from a Republican, but a Democrat, Adlai Stevenson, their 1952 presidential candidate. And it fell flat for the same reason Rep (Cowboy Hat) Frederica Wilson's accusations against a four-star retired Marine general fell flat ... Read More

When Student-Athletes Played Football

For William F Buckley, Jr, RIP WFB was a Yale man. Frederic Remington, the famous Cowboy & Indian artist also was a Yale man. He was also a football player there, before 1880. His football art is offered here to remind people of how the game was once played by young men, when the men ... Read More


It was a teensy bit satisfying to see former National Public Radio CEO Ken Stern on Tucker Carlson's show last week talking about taking a year off and traveling about the interior of America and discovering how a lot of the East Coast elitists' conceptions of the denizens out there are often misconceptions. I say ... Read More

Trump’s EPA to crack down on grants to its own advisers

It's about time and I had hoped this day would be coming. For years we have had the EPA using the junk science from its own advisers and advisory board to steer its policy. The biggest area of its policy has been anthropogenic global warming. The biggest reason for this is that many of the ... Read More

My Seventeen-Year Romance with George W Bush

In 2000, I genuinely liked George W Bush. He was more than just "not Al Gore" or even "Not the continuation of the Clinton Machine." He was Christian, a conservative (No, really) and a quiet, congenial man. He ran on a string of conservative legislative themes, which never really panned out because he was interrupted by ...

Once Again, GOP Establishment Faces Off Against Anti-Establishment Voters

Some reflections drawn from this article, via Weasel Zippers, one of the few "conservative" sites who managed not to melt down during the 2016 campaign because of Donald Trump, and accepted the idea that a Donald Trump presidency was/is a good thing. "Republicans Prepare to Battle with Bannon and Breitbart" Essentially, this sounds like a ... Read More

Update 10-20-17 3:30pm.  Below is a tweet from a reporter in Puerto Rico of a video from the Secretary of State in a dumpster full of MREs and bottled water from the U.S. According to survival guides, MREs in 90+ degree weather should last 4-5 years. Disgusting and more to investigate.  https://twitter.com/davidbegnaud/status/920128545812226048 Most of you ... Read More

Is the Sisterhood Choreographing the Harvey Weinstein Reflex?

I heard this said at least 10 years ago, so it is not a recent Weinstein-reflex. "The greatest threat to mankind are women without men and men without balls." Twice now, in a quarter century, feminists have attempted to parlay their own political hypocrisy into attempting to force men into a kind of psychological subjugation, complete with dog collars. Guilty ... Read More
