A City on a Hill

In eight years, America will celebrate a major milestone—the 400th anniversary of Boston. I passed through Boston’s airport in 2021 and noticed that they seem to be gearing up for this milestone with lots of signs and images celebrating major events in Boston’s history. Alas, they grossly underplayed the role of the Puritans in this […]

So Much for the Rule of Law

These days it seems that Saul Alinsky has taken over the Democrat Party. This is no longer the party of JFK—not even close. JFK said in his Inaugural Address, “the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God.”  There is no God, says Saul Alinsky (1909-1972), […]

Will the Music Go Silent in Kiev?

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that “the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the [20th] century” was the collapse of the Soviet Union. Today Putin is moving hard to “reclaim,” as he would it see it, an important part of Russia — neighboring Ukraine. Thus, the fallout from the Communist atheists’ disastrous takeover of Russia in 1917 continues […]

Abortion on Trial

Last week the Supreme Court heard an abortion case out of Mississippi, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. It would appear to be the most serious challenge to Roe v. Wade in three decades. An interesting aspect of this story is this: How do the American people feel about this case?  Conflicting reports have provided […]

The Pilgrims Learned of Socialism’s Worthlessness: Why Can’t We?

Socialism, one of history’s worst ideas, has been disproved repeatedly and without exception. Yet it keeps rearing its ugly head — constantly being rebranded as a good idea.  Socialism only benefits the ruling class who implement this form of government theft.  Amazingly, early America had an experiment in socialism. The Pilgrim settlers tried socialism for […]

America’s Work Crisis

With another Labor Day come and gone, it’s fascinating to note that America’s work ethic is in trouble today. And the coronavirus has made it worse. We now have a labor shortage crisis. Columnist Victor Davis Hanson (8/11/21) describes some of the symptoms of our current labor shortages: “Airliners cannot take off due to fuel […]

Biden’s Excessive Executive Orders

Within his first two weeks in office, President Biden has signed an unprecedented number of executive orders—47. Writing for Quartz (1/31/21), Amanda Shendruk notes, “Joe Biden has been US president for less than two weeks and has already issued nearly as many executive action as Trump and Obama did in the same period, combined.” [Emphasis […]

Law and Disorder

Americans were shocked by the assault on the U. S. Capitol that took place on January 6th, ostensibly by Trump supporters.  The US Capitol Police Chief, who has since resigned, stated: “The violent attack on the U.S. Capitol was unlike any I have ever experienced in my 30 years in law enforcement here in Washington, […]

Election Integrity

This is not a banana republic. This is the United States of America. Here we are on the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower Compact (November 11, 1620) — the document that initiated American democracy that culminated in the Constitution and our freedoms.  And yet election integrity is at risk. How this is resolved may well […]

The Antidote to Cancel Culture

Each week brings more bad news on “cancel culture”—primarily individuals losing their jobs for one alleged offensive statement. Cancel culture is about shutting people down based on passing, momentary ideological fads.  The communications director of Boeing was forced to abruptly resign because someone complained about an article he wrote in 1988 arguing against women serving […]

The Attack on Christ in Modern America

With violence in the streets of many of our most prominent cities, there is an underlying subtheme that is also troubling. Christophobia, which attacks anything Christian, is surely on the march. Perhaps the latest example is the burning of Bibles in recent Portland protests.  On 8/2/20, Washington Examiner noted, “Portland protesters were filmed burning Bibles […]

Alternative Anthem and Jesus

America is undergoing its cultural revolution right now, obliterating as much of the past as possible. We saw over the weekend, “social justice warriors” in Rochester, NY, tearing down a statue of Frederick Douglas—even though he was an ardent abolitionist.  And some in the cancel culture even want to tear down statues of Jesus. noted last month […]
