No Greater Love; Denying the Devil His Due

( A Memorial Day theme, cross-posted at, this is also one of the major themes of that entire site. Come show us some love.) In the mid 90s, before I began traveling to the Soviet Bloc regularly, and finding out what their outhouses looked like, I taught a few semesters at a small business college in ... Read More

@TheDemocrats Want MS-13 in Your Neighborhoods

You know they do, they've been fighting for illegals and the scum of society for a long time. They think all Hispanics fall under one umbrella, they want you to think that too. Who MS-13 kill are mostly Hispanics - but they certainly aren't shy about Killing All Races Thirteen members of the notorious Salvadoran ... Read More

John McCain’s Death Song

Almost all the Western tribes had death songs; one for when they were about to die in battle, to taunt their enemy, another to tell their fathers they would soon be crossing over,  and a third, if their heart was bad, to disguise their fear of the uncertainty of crossing over. My father's mother, an insufferable and arrogant woman, ... Read More

Defeating the Left is not the Same as Saving America

(Just a friendly reminder. This is an enduring theme at, one of the pillars of why we opened that site. Veterans play a key role in saving America because they all have wagered so much more skin in the game than other Americans. Veterans as a group, for as far back as the Korean War, were never made ... Read More

Needed: A Reclamation Project for Victims of the Left and Deep State

When I was in law school I worked for the Kentucky Bureau of Reclamation, whose original mission was to reclaim all the land in the state that had been devastated by unregulated strip mining. There were parts of the state that looked like the mountains of the moon, stripped and barren, littered with red acid water catch ... Read More

You Get Knocked Down, You Get Up Again #MAGA #KAG

Salena Zito has done a wonderful treatment of who voted for Donald Trump in 2016, and why they will be back in 2020. Amazing to me, of course, is that the Democrats were able to hold onto these people for so long. Democrats have been spitting in the faces of these people for decades. They ... Read More

#NeverTrump Didn’t Kill #RedState

It was just the last spade of dirt. (Actually, RedState, the brand, isn't dead, but I'll discuss that last. There are other lessons to learn first.) Before #NeverTrump there was #NoRonPaulNoTime, #NeverPalin and #NeverHermanCain. In the end, the likely cause of RedState's demise was hubris and bad manners sandwiched between two slices of stale elitist and class ... Read More

Infanticide by the Socialist State; the Sun Sets on the British Empire

Words escape me. Great Britain demanding the death of ill children. Infanticide. Little Alvie Evans died last night. A toddler child confined to a National Health Service Hospital; their dictates, their decrees, and finally, the throwing of the switch. Alfie isn't the first notorious case the world is aware of coming out of England. Remember ... Read More

Famous Common People I have Known: Earl Hodge and Federal Aid to Education

In my freshman year in high school, 1960, I participated in the Kentucky high school regionals of what was called The State Speech Festival. Organized like Spelling Bee competitions, the best of the best at the regionals would be selected and sent onto state finals a couple of weeks later. I can't recall all the ... Read More

How Many Dead Rose Bushes Will it Require to Prevent a Shooting War?

This is a serious question. I don't want to spend 2000 words restating SitReps I've been making since for several years. So, for your benefit I've provided links to reports I've posted since 2013 at the end.. (There's an element of redundancy there, but each covers a different piece of Leftist operational territory that needs to be ... Read More

Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson is a Throwback to Donald Trump in a World of Bureaucrat Managers

 There are people who can walk into the Veteran's Administration and fix it with a wrench and pair of pliers. Ronny Jackson is one, but just one, there are many others. They are called medical doctors. And as doctors, just like Donald trump was in business, they see their world totally in terms of "mission" - to ... Read More

Enviro activists celebrate First Energy filing bankruptcy

. FES’s decision to spend on coal destroyed its business and is a cautionary tale for companies and regulators considering delaying the inevitable transition from coal. So now we turn to the future to see how this plays out. If the lights go out here and you don't hear from me any more, you'll know ... Read More

I Don’t Know Candace Owens…

The most powerful tweet I've ever read on Twitter. "Far right? Allow me to clarify: I believe the black community can do it without hand-outs. I believe the Democrats have strapped us to our past to prevent us from our futures. And I won’t stop fighting until all black Americans see that. I’m not far ... Read More

Another April Augury, April 20, 2018, Wart Hogg-day.

Yesterday, 20 April, 2018 thousands of high school students walked out of class to commemorate the mass school shooting at Columbine High School in Colorado in 1999. What students yesterday didn't know is that April 20 is also Adolf Hitler's birthday or that Harris and Klebold were celebrating it. It's all part of an April augury, April 19 ... Read More

Kimba Wood; There is no Joyrider’s Exemption on the American Civics Test

I'm tooling up I-81 in New York, going from Binghamton to Schenectady. Moderate traffic, speed limit 70, but as the old saying goes, I keep pace with traffic....which is closer to 80. My rule has always been to hang in the right lane, change only to get by trucks and old granddads in their Ford ... Read More
