Introduction and Index

Wreck of the Sea Venture 1609 Samuel Jordan was evidently the first Jordan to settle in English America. Some reports say that Samuel was born in Lyme Regis, Dorsetshire, England, and his birth year is given as 1575 or 1578.  Samuel is believed to have been on the ship Sea Venture that shipwrecked off Bermuda […]

A Bad Deal

There is an old maxim that says that a man who represents himself in court has a fool for a client.  Sometimes it’s even worse when you get a lawyer, The attorney who represented Jake Angeli, the QAnon Shaman, negotiated a plea-bargain on his behalf.   It was a terrible deal.  Angeli received a sentence of […]

What is Truth?

As Easter approaches, many of us will be reminded of Jesus’ trial before Pontius Pilate described in John 18. When asked by Pilate if he is the “King of the Jews”, Jesus confirms by saying, “My kingdom is not of this world….For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the […]

Tucker Carlson Kicks the Hornets’ Nest

I watched the Monday evening Tucker Carlson show with great interest. Tucker and his team of technicians had been given access to the January 6 tapes of the so-called insurrection.  Out of these hours of video footage, Tucker chose a few snippets in order to make the following points: On the day following Carlson’s program […]

All About Abortions

In my most recent post I made a few remarks about the Supreme Courts Roe v Wade reversal and its probable effect on the 2022 midterm elections.  My opinion stirred up several responses, both positive and negative.  Because of that, I decided to examine the controversial issue in much greater detail. Abortions, legal or otherwise, […]

Back Again

As you know, there have been very few new blog entries in the last month. The reason is that I have been curled up in my cage licking my wounds. The results of the recent Congressional election were a terrible disappointment to me. Why couldn’t the electorate see the truth? Encouraged by the outcome, the […]
