Consider please what’s been going on in France the last couple of weeks. Less than a month ago, French President Emmanuel Macron staked his claim as the flag-bearer for globalism.

It was 77 years ago yesterday… the attack on Pearl Harbor. Been thinking about it since yesterday morning. The amount of time that has passed since those events has cost us, I think, an understanding of them. Certainly, we’ve lost a lot of the survivors of that attack. Only about 20 of them, all in […]

Seventeen days before Christmas and Congress Critter-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez(AOC) just delivered a sleigh full of gifts. I hardly know where to start, from Kemberlee Kaye, Legal Insurrection: The First Amendment. How does it work?

It started with Dwight D. Eisenhower and it ended with George H.W. Bush.  From 20 January 1953 to 20 January 1993, our country was lead by a member of the Greatest Generation and a veteran of World War Two.  We may never see the likes such patriot presidents again. Eight presidents and forty years of […]

Do so immediately. 1. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus: subjecting minors to softcore porn 2. The Christmas Song: Open […]

George Herbert Walker Bush, the forty-first President, has been reunited with Barbara: HOUSTON (AP) — He was the man who sought a “kinder, and gentler nation,” and the one who sternly invited Americans to read his lips — he would not raise taxes.

From Daily Caller: In the event that Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith wins the Mississippi runoff election on Nov. 27, the makeup of the Senate Judiciary Committee will shift in favor of the GOP, with a seat currently held by a Democrat flipping red.
