A Tale Of Good And Evil


A number of years ago, I wrote a post titled, “Forthwith: A Tale of Fire and the Flammables.” The post, essentially a parable, substituted fire—and particularly those that supported it-- for “evil.” The events on and after October 7th have illustrated the point of that piece all too tragically well. Evil exists. Has always existed. Always will exist, the better to define evil—and the character of men. This is a Biblical observation. (We are talking about Israel here.) The real tragedy is how many support it. Openly and zealously support it. (Those who celebrate the atrocities being committed against Jews should remember that they aren’t immune. Evil, like fire, does not discriminate.)

In truth, something evil abhors, evil may appear generic, amorphous. This is deceptive. At its core, evil is specific, identifiable—if, in a certain sense, all-encompassing. Good people know it when they see it. Much like the truth.

And, like the truth, it is never supposed to be mentioned or acknowledged, according to our progressive elites. (Unless as regards-- or in conjunction with-- Republicans and white males from the hinterlands.)

The pre-civilizational butchers of 10/7 slaughtered the innocent, killed children in front of their parents-- and parents in front of their children. They trafficked in torture and engaged in rape and necrophilia. And they were followed into Israel by a great many Gaza civilians, who were keen to join the raping, looting, and pillaging. And yet a large portion of the global community has sided with the bloodthirsty aggressors seeking to push the Jews into the sea.

Yes, as with 9/11, what the monsters did was unspeakably evil, yet we must speak of it…and speak of it as the heinous evil that it was. There is no other honest way to do so, no way to parse it otherwise. If we fail to do this, we, too, become like the supporters of the all-encompassing and destructive fire in my parable. And like those who have taken to the streets across the world to celebrate the rape, death, and beheadings of innocent Israelis—men, women, and children. And babies.

In effect, we become death, the destroyer of worlds.

(And we may well be re-introduced to fire in the next one.)

What It Means (Or Used To) To Be An American


Most of the ills we see around us today are the result of something very simple, very basic, but of critical importance. Much as Romans, after many years of relative ease and success, forgot what it meant to be Roman, many of us, in and out of office, have forgotten what it means to be American. And it does mean something. Something specific, unique to history, wonderful. Something—or some things—that perfectly explain America’s unprecedented rise, its unparalleled entrepreneurs, inventions, economy, military, standard of living—and generosity to those less fortunate.

In my opinion, the two best sources for this explanation are the book, “The 5,000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed The World“ and a proclamation by Dean Alfange called “My Creed.” Here is the latter:

“I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon – if I can. I seek opportunity – not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, ‘THIS I HAVE DONE’. All this is what it means to be an American.”

Unfortunately, there are no Founders around today, and our own government has steadfastly attempted to turn as many of us as possible into dependents who rely on the government for…almost everything. Many have traded freedom for illusionary security, free will for promise of more “free” stuff to come.

It is time for a rebirth, time for us to let our own “public servants” (I dare you not to laugh as you read those words), whether elected or in the vast Deep State, know that we will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is time to think and act (and speak and write) for ourselves, consequences and “cancellations” be damned.

For that is what it means to be an American.

Truth Or Consequences


What is truth?

Let’s start with what it isn’t. The truth isn’t “diverse.” (Sorry progressives.) It is not necessarily equitable…or even inclusive. The truth is not “trans.” Nor is it fungible. It isn’t a living document that changes over time.

It is sometimes difficult to find the truth, usually because humans have obscured it with detritus, dressed it up in drag, or attempted to hide it amidst falsities. Yet, at other times it is-- or should be—perfectly obvious.

But truth is real. Truth is absolute, divine, objective, singular, authoritative, and immutable.

Here are some truths about truth, as stated by two remarkable men:

Teddy Roosevelt: “To anger a conservative, lie to him. To anger a liberal, tell him the truth.”

George Orwell: “The more a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.”

Orwell: “The very concept of objective truth is fading out of the world. Lies will pass into history.”  

We are constantly being told lies. By the elites that make—and enforce-- the rules. By the “experts.” By “scientists” like Dr. Fauci. And, most disturbing of all, by those in our intelligence agencies and at the highest levels of government. We are being force-fed misinformation, disinformation, and outright “fake news” by our mainstream and social media outlets. Most of us sense this, feel this, know this.

“Truth, justice, and the American Way” was not only a comic book phrase in days of yore, it was a blueprint for our society. But now it seems that the American way has gone by the wayside, and justice has been perverted. It has often been said that “the truth will set you free.” But now the truth can get you “cancelled,” perhaps even imprisoned.

And yet, we have been tasked by our Creator to seek the truth. So what are we to do?

Seek the truth. Tell the truth. No matter the consequences.

For, as Martin Luther King said, “The day we see the truth and cease to speak is the day we begin to die.”

The truth has never been more needed than now.

Bethlehem Cancels Christmas


Bethlehem, the town where Jesus was born more than 2000 years ago, recently announced it is "canceling" Christmas this year……in honor of Palestinians who have died in Hamas’ brutal war with Israel. Bethlehem normally generates a majority of its revenue from tourism, especially around Christmas, when Christians flock to the Church of the Nativity, thought to be on or near the site where Jesus was born in a manger. But city officials said that virtually all decorations, including a tree, lights, and a nativity scene would be dismantled prior to December 25 in honor of Palestinian “martyrs.”

This means that there will be no Christmas tree or decorative lights in Manger Square, which marks the spot where Jesus Christ was said to have been born, for the first time since modern celebrations began.

Though local authorities may try, Christmas cannot be “cancelled.” Some men once tried to cancel Jesus himself, but that didn’t work, either, as Easter makes clear. Instead, Jesus became the greatest martyr of all.

Just seventy years ago, Christians made up 80 percent of Bethlehem’s population, but now comprise only about 10 percent. Bethlehem is now majority Muslim-- and will remain dark this December.

Symbolic enough for you?

Consider putting a light in your window-- or on your doorstep-- this Christmas, in solidarity with Christians around the world. And all those who truly value peace on earth and good will towards men.


O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in the dark street shineth
The everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God, the King
And peace to men on Earth

U.N. Adopts Eight Resolutions Condemning Israel, None Condemning Hamas...Or Anyone Else


The U.N. recently adopted eight resolutions condemning Israel for various alleged human rights violations, yet made no condemnation of other nations or groups, including Hamas. This after Hamas slaughtered nearly 1,500 innocent Israelis during a surprise attack on October 7th.  And at a time of inexplicably rising anti-Semitism. This tells you all you need to know about the “world body.” It is nothing more than a wretched hive of scum and villainy.

Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, said via press release: "The U.N.’s assault on Israel with a torrent of one-sided resolutions, just one month after the largest massacre of Jews since the Holocaust, and on the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht, is surreal.” And morally repugnant.

Neuer added, “The only purpose of these eight lopsided condemnations is to demonize the Jewish state. The world should not be deceived that these annual resolutions advance the cause of peace or human rights in any way.”

The U.N.’s Second Committee, which focuses on Economic and Financial issues, announced the passage of three such resolutions, including one demanding that Israel cease the “exploitation, damage, cause of loss or depletion and endangerment” in the Golan Heights region of Syria. Huh?

Unsurprisingly, Bashar al-Assad’s Syria drafted and co-sponsored the resolution, which passed with a vote of 151 in favor to six against. Only Israel, Canada, the Federated States of Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and the United States opposed the measure. Eleven members abstained from voting. 

Neuer called the Syrian-backed resolution "obscene," and stated that it is "astonishing" that the U.N. would support a call for "more people to be handed over" to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, which has killed "half a million of its own people." 

Neuer noted that Assad’s forces have killed "more than 3,000 Palestinians" in their conflicts, prompting him to add of the resolution, "The text is morally galling and logically absurd.”

“Morally galling and logically absurd.”

That would be the perfect motto for the U.N.

Americans Now Unwilling To Fight For Their Country?


A disheartening new poll conducted by the Echelon Insights research institute purports to show that 72% of American voters would not be willing to volunteer to fight for their country if the United States faced a major conflict. The poll of 1,029 likely voters, obtained by Newsweek, was conducted Oct. 23-26, in the days following the heinous Hamas terror attacks against Israel on October 7th.

That the overwhelming majority of U.S. adults apparently would not be willing to serve in the United States military if the country faced another major war is concerning to say the least, especially given extreme tensions in the Middle East and surrounding Iran, Russia, China, and North Korea, the modern day Axis of Evil.


By contrast, a Daily Mail poll conducted by J.L. Partners and released early last month found that 64% of 1,000 likely voters were willing to die defending the United States-- in the event of an invasion. However, the same poll showed that fully 30% of Americans ages 18-29 would rather surrender than die fighting for their country. Moreover, the poll found that less than half-- 46% to be exact-- of Democrats would be willing to die fighting for the U.S. Sadly, the latter figure is anything but a shock. Why would you lay down your life for a nation you despise, one peopled with oppressors and—Trump supporters?!

The U.S. military is increasingly represented by those from the South and rural areas…and from families who have a history of service. This, too, is unsurprising. These areas-- and families-- tend to be more conservative and Republican. And patriotic. Rather than entitled and bitter.

No sane person likes war or looks forward to dying in battle, but, as someone once noted: If you have nothing to die for, you have nothing to live for. Sometimes there has to be something greater than one’s self. So let’s take a look at why we won’t fight. Here are 21 reasons, some admittedly tied together.

1) Nearly all of us have become soft and spoiled by our relative wealth and ease.

2) As such, we tend to be extremely entitled.

3) Our kids have been indoctrinated, taught to disdain the country by their schools.

4) Leftist identity politics is tearing us apart. Rather than a “we are all Americans” mentality bringing us together with shared values, ownership, and pride (E pluribus unum) we have been deliberately splintered into countless groups, tribes, and classes (E unum pluribus?).

5) To that end, the media incessantly focuses on our differences and highlights any act of bigotry. Or makes one up.

6) White people/colonizers/founders have been branded as bad, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, transphobic, etc., courtesy of The 1619 Project, CRT, the #MeToo movement, et. al., ad nauseum.

7) There has been a pronounced and continuing loss of religious belief and church attendance, along with a consequent loss of Judeo-Christian values.

8) There has been a significant loss of belief in free markets and the capitalist economic system, especially among the young…also due to “institutions of higher learning.”

9) There has been a loss of belief in the benefits of freedom of speech/assembly/religion, the right to bear arms, and other rights the founders felt were paramount—and inviolate.

10) There has been a stunning decline in Americans’ knowledge of American history. Schools no longer emphasize the teaching of history, unless it is fake history such as The 1619 Project. Many colleges no longer even offer courses on actual American History, Western Civ, or the classics.

11) There is certainly little knowledge of the history of the rest of the world as regards slavery, bigotry, racism, misogyny, the devastating results of communism, etc. And no dissemination of any of these topics.

12) There is an extreme dearth of knowledge of past societies, their forms of government, and how those governments may have aided—or more often decimated—the hopes, dreams, and well-being of the citizens over which they ruled.

13) There is a near total lack of familiarity of-- and appreciation for-- the concepts of Natural Law and Natural Rights…the defining difference between the United States and every other nation in the history of the world.

14) A growing ”better dead than red” mentality, coupled with a belief that physical violence is always wrong. (Unless it is directed at unborn babies or Jews, of course.)

15) A pseudo form of hyper-tolerance; tolerance considered a value above all others. (Except when dealing with unborn babies or Jews.)

16) A lack of familiarity and experience with firearms, vehicles, machinery, etc., and a desire to largely stay apart from them. (Completely opposite of American youth’s attitude from the Revolutionary War through Vietnam.)

17) Helicopter parenting, which prevents kids from experimenting, “inventing,” and developing a spirit of adventure.

18) The attacks on “toxic masculinity” and the simultaneous feminization and infantilization of society.

19) Some too distracted by watching sports, streaming television shows, gambling, and porn to dedicate the time and energy to much of anything else.

20) Too many consumed with “self-medication” via pot, alcohol, fentanyl, opioids, etc.

21) Too many overweight and out of shape. (See 19 and 20 above.)

Is it any wonder that an ill-educated, largely ignorant, out of shape people who have been told that the U.S. is evil-- and who have lost belief in anything but themselves and their specific peer group—are reluctant to fight for their country? That they are not particularly patriotic? The question is how could it be other than thus?

National Trust 2024 Calendar Omits Christian Holidays


The National Trust of England, a charity and membership organization for heritage conservation, recently released its 2024 “inclusivity and wellbeing” calendar, according to a report in the Telegraph. The almanac is distributed annually to volunteers. Particularly attentive members noticed that, of all holidays for consideration in the erstwhile Christian nation, Christmas and Easter go unmentioned. A volunteer raised the issue at the heritage group’s annual meeting, already contentious due to accusations that the Trust rigged an election in the manner of American Democrats, to get preferred candidates voted in.

Some members were understandably upset that Christian holidays were deliberately excluded from the calendar, the more so because holidays such as Diwali, Eid and Ramadan were not.

Moreover, the calendar recognized Black History Month, LGBT+ History Month, and Transgender Awareness Week, among other “holidays” and observances.

Saint Patrick’s Day? Yes. Notting Hill Carnival? You bet. Christmas? Easter? Nah.

Priorities, right?

School's VP Of Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion Makes Several Times The Salary Of Her Co-Workers


Administrative bureaucracy is killing higher education in America…and dramatically driving up its cost. By way of example, administrators at West Virginia University currently outnumber teaching and instructional staff by an incredible 2 to 1 margin. Talk about ass backwards. Or worse.

Moreover, Meshea Poore, the school’s Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, makes $234,537 per year-- plus benefits-- a salary that dwarfs that of her fellow employees and makes a mockery of WVU’s $45 million deficit. According to, Poore’s salary is “298.0 percent higher than the average pay for her co-workers.” Her salary is nearly two-and-a-half times greater than that of the average full-time professor at West Virginia University, and five-and-a-half times more than the average salary of the school’s other office and administrative support staff.


Poor(e)? Hardly.        


Ms. Meshea, you are the VP for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, for crying out loud. Equity? Unless you are just another progressive fraud, you should put your money where your mouth is. Share your salary.

Salon Writer Equates Hamas With Republicans, Christians, Trump Supporters


Salon, which is to news and opinion as Porta Potties are to lavatories, proved unable to wait even one full week after Hamas terrorists massacred thousands of Israelis (and at least 33 Americans) before reminding the twisted souls who read the rag that Christian Republicans are the real threat to the planet’s roughly 8 billion people. On Oct. 12th, the far-left repository of radical refuse published an unhinged polemic by former White House correspondent Brian Karem asserting that the Republican Party and Hamas are "both terrorist groups,” and any difference is “just a matter of degree."

As if that preposterous-- and libelous—statement wasn’t enough, Karem recently doubled down via a similar piece, suggesting that "MAGA and Christian nationalism" together constitute a greater threat to America than "Hamas could ever be." B.K. needs to be reminded that the country was founded by Christian nationalists, which is in large part why it became the most successful nation in the history of the world. Neither Christians nor nationalists tend to behead babies or kill children in front of their parents. Trump supporters don’t typically take the elderly hostage. Patriots rarely prey on innocents. And I have never heard of a horde of screaming Republicans crossing another nation’s border and butchering thousands.

I’m guessing, if he were to be honest, Mr. Karem would be less confident of his safety were he with Hamas in Gaza than he would be in, say, a Catholic church or at a Republican caucus. But Mr. Karem is not honest. He is either a hate-filled pathetic liar…or insane.

As for Salon? If it were a printed publication, it would be quite suitable for use in a Porta Potty.

Holocaust 2.0


1938: Kristallnacht.

1939: The German government prohibits Jews from working as nurses, veterinarians, holistic practitioners, and dentists. Germany invades Poland. Thousands of Jews are transferred via freight car from Germany to Poland. German authorities require Jews residing in certain areas to wear white armbands adorned with a Star of David. England declares war on Germany.

1940: The Battle of Britain rages over the English Channel. An ever-fewer number of British pilots fight valiantly against the powerful Luftwaffe in the skies above the English Channel, eventually repelling the Luftwaffe and leading England’s Prime Minister Winston Churchill to proclaim of the remaining RAF lads, “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” 

In other rightfully famous speeches, Churchill vowed that the English would ““Defend our island, whatever the cost may be,” and would “never surrender.” Speaking of Hitler, Churchill said, “If we can stand up to him, all Europe may be free and the life of the world may move forward into broad, sunlit uplands. But if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the British Empire and its Commonwealth last for a thousand years, men will still say, ‘This was their finest hour.’”

They so braced themselves-- and stood up to Hitler. And, with America’s help, they prevailed.


2023: It appears England is lost. Truly massive throngs of pro-Hamas, anti-Jew protesters overtook London recently, usurping roadways and overwhelming bridges and thoroughfares. The more than 300,000 protesters sung “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” meaning the Jews will be expelled from Israel and/or exterminated. One young female protester held up a sign showing a stick-figure human dropping a Star of David into a garbage can. Translation: Keep the world clean…of Jews.

This after Hamas terrorists surprised and slaughtered 1,300 innocent Israeli men, women, and children on October 7th. Hostages were taken, women were raped, babies were beheaded, bodies were desecrated. Hamas used children as young as 10-years-old to go into homes and loot. Some of the youngsters reportedly laughed as terrorists raped and killed Jews.

What was the response to all of the hate, the vitriol, the calls for a renewed Holocaust? U.K. police arrested a man for criticizing the flying of Palestinian flags in his London neighborhood. And posed for a picture with a toddler dressed as a Hamas terrorist.

Things aren’t much better—or saner-- across the Atlantic in the New World. North Andover, Massachusetts, officials approved the flying of a Palestinian flag on a pole in the Town Commons. Until December 7th. (A date that still lives in infamy.) Solidarity. Students at various “elite” American universities have been observed chanting, “There is only one solution—intifada revolution.” The Final Solution? No? Think again. “Holocaust 2.0” was written in chalk on a walkway at the University of Maryland. More than one hundred Harvard faculty members have demanded the academic freedom to openly call for Jewish genocide. Meanwhile, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, protesters blocked Jewish students from attending classes. This took place on the 85th anniversary of Kristallnacht, the pogrom that marked the beginning of the Holocaust.

And, according to Ralf Schuler, former chief political correspondent for the German newspaper Bild, Muslim migrants are on their way to appropriating Germany for their own will—and will soon be in the majority, with all that entails for Jews…and other infidels. Ironic. (A copy of ‘Mein Kampf’ was recently found in a Hamas hideout.)

All of this is really aimed at dismantling the West and any remaining Judeo-Christian values and ethics it may contain. The Jews—as always—are just first in line to be disposed of. One would think that nations besides Israel would be determined to push back and save themselves, as they did in yesteryear. But one would be wrong. Quite the contrary, in fact. Western nations appear determined to see to their own destruction. To wit: the Biden administration is considering giving Hamas’ master and benefactor access to another $10 billion. This after leaving countless billions of dollars in top-of-the-line military equipment in Afghanistan for the Taliban to utilize. (Some of which ended up in the hands of Hamas.)

A bizarrely unique and hypocritical mix of “progressive” ignorance, intolerance, envy, hatred, and herd mentality has led us to this point. In England and America, The New Nazis seem more prevalent today, especially among the young, than they were in the lead-up to World War II. The so-called “institutions of higher learning” have spawned a new breed of Hitler Youth (“Jugend”).

83 years after The Battle of Britain began, it appears to have sadly, ultimately, been lost. Somewhere, Churchill, FDR, Montgomery, Patton, et. al., must be coming to realize that their sacrifice—and that of millions of others—was, in the long run, all for nought.

Never in human history have so many done so little to honor their ancestors…or save their societies.

How will we be judged by our descendants? Perhaps at some point in the future they will look back, point to us today, and say, “This was their most craven hour.”

Xi And Joe Make A Pact To Reduce Fossil Fuel Production...And There Was Much Rejoicing...In China


President Biden has made a pact with China to more rapidly move towards shutting down fossil fuel production in favor of green energy. The State Department recently announced it had struck a deal with its Chinese counterparts pledging to "accelerate the substitution for coal, oil and gas generation" with green energy sources like wind and solar power.

The nations, who together reportedly account for almost half of global greenhouse gas emissions, also agreed to "deepen policy exchanges" on reducing carbon emissions across various sectors of their economies-- such as power, industry, buildings and transportation.

What could go wrong?

Apart from the collapse of the U.S. economy, and subsequently the living standards of its approximately 340 million people, that is. Indeed, American energy experts are warning of the potentially dire economic and national security implications. But no matter. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

It should also be noted that China, like other Communist nations and dictatorships, has rarely—if ever—faithfully followed through on international accords and agreements, especially involving energy and military matters.

And, even if it did in this case, it stands to benefit from this agreement as it controls much of the world's green energy materials and supply chain.

Think energy prices and transportation costs are high now? Just wait!

This is breathtaking naivete. This is like striking a deal with Russia to drastically reduce vodka production……if Russia also largely controlled the production of gin, bourbon, whisky, rum, tequila, and brandy. Heads, they win! Tails, we lose! China will be Lucy holding the football-- and we will be Charlie Brown again. Let’s hope we don’t fall on our ass trying to kick…fossil fuels.

Leftist Moron, "Tear Down This Wall?"


According to Young America’s Foundation, a leftist student at Michigan Technological University recently vandalized and attacked a mock-up of the Berlin Wall. The campus YAF group had set the display up at the public university in Houghton to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989. But one moronic student managed to find the display offensive and began spray painting it before eventually tearing it down. (Well, the real wall was full of graffiti, too, by the time it was taken down, though it was mostly anti-Communist and pro-freedom graffiti.)

From the YAF website:

In celebration of President Ronald Reagan’s monumental call to “tear down this wall,” the students had planned to tear it down at the end of the day, demonstrating the importance of Reagan’s legacy on a campus where naive leftists still fervently advocate for the very policies that threaten the freedoms he stood up for.

Ironically, an upset leftist student ended up being the one to tear down the wall.

The socialist sympathizer, armed with a bottle of red spray paint, approached the display and began spraying the YAF students’ personal belongings and faces.

According to YAFers who were on scene at the time of the incident, the student began criticizing the project, told them to kill themselves, and then tore down the wall.

YAF also reported: “Campus police questioned the student, but let him go, at which point he returned to the display to continue protesting.”

Because, apparently, vandalizing others’ property and telling conservatives to kill themselves is neither a crime nor “hate speech.” At least not on college campuses.

Fortunately-- and humorously-- this student-asshat is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. Bringing idiocy to a new level, he accidentally proved YAF’s point by tearing down the wall, something YAF was planning to do a little later in the day to commemorate the fall of the wall which divided East and West Berlin for decades.

Reagan exclaimed: “Secretary General Gorbachev, if you seek peace—if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe—if you seek liberalization: come here, to this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.”

In this case, the deluded student answered Reagan’s call…albeit unknowingly.

Democrats' Extremism, Incivility, Gaslighting Precludes Civil Response


Many people wonder why today, as opposed to even the recent past, the political parties can no longer be civil to-- or even tolerate one another. Well, the reason for that is that the Democratic Party has become so extreme and moved so far left that it is no longer possible for a sane person to agree with them. Today’s Democrats bear little resemblance to those of the Truman or even Kennedy eras. They are not just economic Marxists believing in equality of outcome, but cultural Marxists that wish to deny and/or destroy all that came before them, including the very concept of men and women.

Not content with even this, they boldly attempt to impose their ideas—and will-- on everyone else. They want equity of beliefs and values, as long as those beliefs and values are their own.

It is one thing to believe in somewhat bigger government and higher taxes, quite another to believe that baby killing should be enshrined as the law of the land and that men can become women just by saying so. And that others should not have the right to believe what they see, think what they want, say what they will, or even defend themselves. This kind of tyranny, especially in the guise of “democracy,” simply cannot be tolerated if we are to have a free and representative republic…and a viable society. It must be dealt with the way our founders dealt with British tyranny. The Biden administration has issued a veritable plethora of edicts and mandates that should rightly constitute a modern version of the “Intolerable Acts,” so many in fact that there is not space enough for them to be catalogued here.

As Thomas Jefferson so unambiguously stated, “I have sworn-- on the altar of God—eternal hostility to all forms of tyranny over the minds of man.”

Unfortunately, there are few, if any, Thomas Jeffersons, Patrick Henrys, Paul Reveres, Samuel Adamses, or George Washingtons in today’s Republican Party—or anywhere else.

So, it may well be up to us to reclaim our birthright and take back our freedoms.

Time grows short.

Professor Says Bestiality "Morally Permissible"


Pete Singer, notorious Princeton professor of bioethics, recently shared an article in defense of bestiality. Not kidding. Not satisfied, he then offered his own statement making a case for the formerly taboo practice.

The article Singer selflessly shared is titled “Zoophilia Is Morally Permissible,” and appeared in the aptly named “Journal of Controversial Ideas”—a publication of which he is a founding co-editor. Singer took to ‘X’ to say of the article, “This piece challenges one of society’s strongest taboos and argues for the moral permissibility of some forms of sexual contact between humans and animals. This article offers a controversial perspective that calls for a serious and open discussion on animal ethics and sex ethics.”

The article itself states that zoophilia is “one of the few sexual orientations (along with e.g. necrophilia or pedophilia) that remain off-­limits and have been left aside from the sexual liberation movement in the past fifty years.” After which Singer writes: “I would like to argue that this is a mistake. There is in fact nothing wrong with having sex with animals: it is not an inherently problematic sexual practice.”

Egads! Bestiality is not even “inherently problematic?!”

In an earlier article by Singer himself, titled “Heavy petting,” the nutty professor put forth opinions such as “girls are more likely to be attracted to horses than boys,” and suggested that men raping and beheading chickens is “no worse than what egg producers do to their hens all the time.” (Has anyone surveyed the chickens to see if they agree?) He followed that statement up by saying that bestiality is morally preferable to factory farming. I doubt even livestock would agree.

I told you so. This is further proof of the “slippery slope” of declining standards and sexual mores. What’s next? Could there be anything next after bestiality, necrophilia, and pedophilia? On second thought, I don’t want to know.

In any case, it looks like we’re soon gonna need to add some more letters to our favorite living acronym!


We may not need the ‘plus sign’ much longer.

The Toronto Star Says It's A Privilege To Know Your Child's Gender


A recent opinion piece in the Toronto Star argued that it's a parent's privilege, not a right, to know their own child's gender identity.

The actual headline read: “It’s a privilege, not a right, to know your kid’s gender identity.” Really?

So, progressives believe we have no right to bear arms-- or know our child’s gender-- but we do have the right to facilitate the mutilation of their genitalia or the lopping off of their breasts—or to kill them in the womb for our convenience?! Amazing.

Is it a privilege, not a right, to know our dog’s sex or gender? Breed?

It is almost impossible not to know these things, whether we truly wanted to or not.

But let’s look at it the other way: do kids have a right to know their parents’ genders? I mean, infants just presumptuously reach for their mother’s breasts, but how do they know what gender “they” are? Are they not risking non-verbally misgendering that parent? Should there be punishment for that indiscretion?

Kindergartners In Diapers A Growing Trend...And Illustrative


Apparently, there are an increasing number of kids, with no physical or cognitive disabilities whatsoever, who are entering kindergarten without being potty-trained. This is hard to fathom. In the past, the vast majority of children were fully potty trained around three years old, give or take a couple of months.

However, today Kindergarten teachers often report to We Are Teachers that 15-20% of their classroom is not potty-trained, and that even a few first-graders are still in Pull-Ups. (Again, this does not include kids with medical issues, or physical or cognitive disabilities.) Sadly, there is a growing trend of children reaching the age of five without being potty trained.

Many teachers have taken to online sites such as Reddit to opine and vent their frustration with yet another unpleasant issue with which they must deal. Some blame the lack of training on the new phenomenon called “gentle parenting,” wherein parents hope to foster a healthy relationship with their children by validating their emotions instead of coaxing and punishing. These parents purport to respect their children’s individuality and feelings—and often believe that it is harmful to force a child to learn how to use a toilet before they express that they are ready. 

One Reddit user noted: “Some parents believe that they are supposed to protect their child from every kind of discomfort, so the minute their child protests they take it as a sign their kid isn’t ready.”

“@maren.theteacher,” an educator on TikTok, took to the platform to reveal that she had noticed a “skill discrepancy” among her students, and not just when it comes to potty training. Maren, who teaches third grade, claimed that during the previous school year she had many students without disabilities or developmental delays who still did not know how to tie their shoes or zip their coats. 

Let’s cut the crap. “Gentle parenting” is bullsh*t. Those who wish to “protect their child from every kind of discomfort” are setting them up to be miserable failures, emphasis on miserable. The pain kids raised like this will experience later in life will be all too real…and there will likely be no one there to hold their hands, wipe their noses, make them hot chocolate, and tell them that everything will be okay. Children need to be taught that life can be tough, but that it can be marvelously rewarding, much the more so with hard work, faith, and a good attitude.

If parents abdicate their responsibilities and wait for their kids to tell them what gender they are, when they are ready to use the toilet, and when they wish to learn to read, write, go to bed, eat well, exercise, etc., etc., their kids will almost certainly be spoiled rotten and utterly incapable of dealing with the real world. Or of having deep and meaningful relationships…and a deep and meaningful life.

This trend, too, is part of the continuing infantilization of America. Fewer and fewer people ever truly grow up to be well-adjusted, generally content, high-functioning adults who do more for society than they expect society government to do for them.

And it’s not just kids who need diapers. It often seems adults-- like President Biden and Jerry Nadler (D-NY) for instance-- could use some, as well. And they, too, are literally and/or figuratively crapping on America.

Gen Z Unable To Comprehend Cursive


Sadly, it appears Generation Z (those born between 1997 and 2012) never learned to read—or write-- in cursive.

From Deseret News:

With the development and prominence of technology, cursive has become increasingly obsolete, but what impact will this have for the future?

According to The Atlantic, this means, “In the future, cursive will have to be taught to scholars the way Elizabethan secretary hand or paleography is today.” This directly impacts archival work. Many written documents from the 19th century and other early time periods are written in cursive. While it was once taken for granted that American students would know how to read cursive, now that cannot be the case.

Archival work largely depends on a reader’s ability to read hard-to-read texts in shorthand and/or cursive. Will this mean that universities will start having to offer college courses in history programs on how to read cursive? Only time will tell.


Some educators say the advent of Common Core is largely to blame for Gen Z being unable to fathom cursive, but there is more to it than that. Cursive writing, like Calligraphy (though obviously to a lesser extent), requires much practice and patience, a focused and steady mind and hand…and a writing implement (instead of a keyboard or screen). These are all things in short supply today.


Deseret News again:

Drew Gilpin Faust, who wrote in The Atlantic about the loss of cursive, told NPR that the loss of cursive means that “the past is presented to us indirectly.”

Using the example of a contract, Faust said to NPR, “I mean, just imagine if you had some kind of contract that you had signed and you couldn’t read it and someone told you, well, this is what’s in the contract. That’s what’s in the contract. And then later you might find that it was something else. So there are limits in your power, in your sense of how the world works and your sense of how the world used to work when you can’t have access to a means of communication.”


In an article for the NEA, Cindy Long noted that “many studies have shown that learning cursive not only improves retention and comprehension, it engages the brain on a deep level as students learn to join letters in a continuous flow.” She added, “It also enhances fine motor dexterity and gives children a better idea of how words work in combination.”


Newspapers and periodicals are going the way of the dodo. Most kids now listen to books-- or read from a Kindle or E-book. Many can’t tell time from an analog clock.


Reading the words of our founders-- or of any who came before us-- beautifully written in longhand, brings us closer to them. The flowing words on a letter or manuscript, or from a diary, seem to reveal more of their character—and the truth—than is possible to glean from printout, screen, or audio book.

This is one more skill lost, one more link to our past cast coldly aside.

Do we really know what time it is? Some say the writing is on the wall…but some of us may no longer be able to read it.
