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 […]

The Gates of Hell

As we witness responses to the Supreme Court’s recent overturn of   Roe v Wade, we are looking directly into the face of evil.  “Damn the Supreme Court” they say.  Damn Gorsuch and Kavanaugh and Barrett.”  These crazed demonstrators are ready to destroy Democracy itself.  They hate Christianity and will do anything to satisfy the appetite […]

Why Didn’t He?

With reference to the January 6th inquiry, one of my sons recently wrote me the following: “My question has always been and remains, why didn’t Trump message the Capitol intruders to stop what they were doing and go home hours before he finally did and as almost his entire staff, family, and even some conservative news media icons […]


This day marks the 708th anniversary of Bannockburn. England and Scotland coexisted peacefully during the early Middle Ages.  That all changed in the 1290s.  Young Margaret, heiress to the Scottish throne, died on her way to the country in 1290, leaving the question of succession in dispute.  Margaret had previously been affianced to Edward, Prince […]


For many years members of my family have been faithful customers of Parkers Barbecue Restaurant in Wilson, North Carolina.  They make a delicious east Carolina variety of pork BBQ, and you can purchase an all-you-can-eat dinner for a very reasonable price.  Whenever our north-south travels take us within a reasonable distance of Wilson, we try […]


I realize that I may be out of step with most of my fellow citizens on the question of who actually won the 2020 Presidential election.  Perhaps I am looking at the wrong information sources, but I believe that there is strong evidence that Trump should have received most of the electoral votes.  However, by […]

Death Throes of the Democrat Party

I was a registered Democrat from my first registration in the 1950s until 1993.  As a young boy in the American South during the late 30s and early 40s, I followed politics with some interest but did not participate.  Citizens in the South were overwhelming Democrat in their sympathies.  The political legacy of the Civil […]

Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts

The Federal government supplies only a small percentage of the funds required to operate our public schools.  Nevertheless, Federal bureaucrats use this money as a means of control. The Biden administration’s Department of Agriculture is now demanding that any school or other establishment that accepts federal food funding, including food stamps, must allow males who […]

The Short and the Tall

a Over the past decade or so I noticed that people are getting taller.  I once thought of myself as being slightly above average in height, but now I am looking up to almost everyone.  Three of my granddaughters are taller than me, and I began wondering about my great grandchildren.  Are we becoming a […]

Clinton’s Guilt

Not unexpectedly, the trial of Michael Sussman ended with a “not guilty” vote by the jury.  With an Obama appointed judge and a tainted jury pool, Durham was fighting against the odds in this case.  Nevertheless, the trial exposed some ugly truths about Hillary Clinton and her political operatives.  The following is a quote from […]
