“Consistency” (1947) by Kenneth Roberts (my Favorite Tory)

Note the publish date, 1947, and historically, about the Adams Administration era, 1797-1801, then compare with the same underlying problems we confront in American politics today. I'll be doing a series on Themes in the American Apologetics series in upcoming weeks. How we think about the Enemy today, and how little we can do to change ... Read More

No More Ms Nice Guy, “The Power” Next Time

What follows is more than mere speculation. My opinions here are based on many years of face-to-face experiences with Marxist totalitarianism, but as seen by its victims. This short analysis is also based on almost 50 years of gauging Marxist systems as applied to a variety of national landscapes, going back to the events preceding the October Revolution in ...

The Insidious Underbelly Of Black Racism

The most stunning part of this article lies buried in the use of a phrase long considered to be at the very core of the problem between whites and blacks in this country... Nearly 250 years ago. Back then there was a universal belief by whites that blacks were inferior, somehow, and not considered worthy ... Read More

American Apologetics; Reverse Engineering History

God's fingerprints are all over America as it was founded. And other than the nastier DNA he'd injected into individual men thousands of years earlier, Satan was noticeable by his absence at America's founding. All the people who came to America arrived with their standard share of wrath, envy, pride, and a sea-chest full of "don't give a ... Read More

Can Donald Trump take Big Money out of Politics?

#NeverTrumpers come in all sizes and shapes, but at the top of that pyramid isn't George Will because his reserved seat around the Washington Post's Members-Only swimming pool isn't as glamorous as it once was. The kings of Trump-haters have been the Karl Rove political consultancy class and their networks. Since the Reagan years they'd pumped billions into political campaigns (with ... Read More

Where Pots & Kettles Collide

Joe Biden should be the poster child for everything that is wrong with race relations in this country. Despite being every bit as much the same bumbling idiot today as he was when Obama picked him as his running mate, he has, single-handedly, come to epitomize the fundamental problem in the Liberal Progressive anti-racism movement ...

American Apologetics

An Introduction “Apologetics” is generally defined as religious arguments originally used by early church fathers to defend what would eventually become Christian doctrine, to both non-believers who had no particular religious beliefs, an act of persuasion, and to others who had interpreted the tale of Christ and its meaning differently, an act of defense against false doctrine ...

Faces Of The Modern Democrat Party?

This entry was initially intended to be a quick remark about Michael Moore once again inserting himself into the national conversation... Presuming that any of us gives a rip any more about his opinion than anyone else's... And mocking him for being a fanboy of those babes in the so-called "Squad". But as I skimmed ... Read More

Satan and Mark Twain, CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien

Late in life Mark Twain had to go on the road to raise money to pay his creditors because he'd invested poorly. In the process he probably invented stand-up comedy, which Vaudeville probably stole. Over the years I've collected several of his one-liners. At one of his sessions he mentioned that he wanted to shake hands with the Devil. "He must be a ... Read More

America First

If you are a liberal this is code for racism and white supremacy... Or something. If you're everyone else, America first simply means that our needs - as a nation - should come before all others. It's not a complicated idea and has worked, more or less successfully, for two and a half centuries. The ... Read More

The More Things Change….

I ran into an interesting book of illustrations from 1942 by an artist named Constantin Ajalov, entitled Conversation Pieces. I did an art piece centered around The New Yorker's cartoons from World War II, all about the socialite women, who, in the 40s were almost exclusively Rockefeller Republicans, who were very funny, indeed.  Ajalov was ...

Famous Americans We Haven’t Met Yet

Do you know me? No one in Bulgaria does, either. His name was Raiko Daskalov, and he was a small-time labor organizer who died in 1923, while the communists were still an illegal underground movement. But 1986 was the 100th anniversary of his birth, soooo… This is how it works, beginning soon at a post office ... Read More

Just Remember, “Patriot” Means other things to Other People

Just a reminder. This song was written in the 1950s by an Irishman named Behan, who had friends in the IRA. It was a much requested song by IRA members, and recorded by the Clancy Brothers, Joan Baez, and others, as well as the Kingston Trio in the early 60s ... Read More
