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 was on the ship Sea Venture that shipwrecked off Bermuda in July 1609. The […]

Thoughts on the Election

Results from the recent Presidential election are still being fought out in state legislatures and in the courts.  The role of the legislatures is very important because, as the United States Constitution directs, “each state shall appoint, in such manner as the legislature thereof may direct” the electors that determine who will be President. As […]

A Beautiful Interlude

As I look back at my life, I have so many things for which to be thankful.  Among those things are stored images and memories of times past. In September 1954 I returned from Korea.  I had been overseas or in transit a full 19 months, and my feelings of joy upon returning home are […]

The Kraken

This is the week in which Sidney Powell says she will release the Kraken.  Perhaps it will be today?  She says Friday at the latest. I thought it well to give you some idea of what we might expect. Looks rather fearsome, doesn’t it. Of course, Powell’s enemies and most political pundits say that her […]

Cruising

Ocean cruising is a very popular activity.  Many people love to get on a luxurious cruise ship and set sail for beautiful Caribbean, the Mediterranean, or some other fascinating area. On the ship they are treated to an unending feast of  delicious food, theatrical performances, and a great variety of shipboard activities.   They arrive home […]

The Clock is Ticking

The next week or so should determine if charges of massive nation-wide election fraud can be substantiated. The liberal media dismisses these charges out-of-hand.  Their dismissal means absolutely nothing.  They also dismissed the Hunter Biden laptop as a fraud, even when there was plenteous corroborating evidence of Hunter’s probably criminal activity.  Investigative reporting appears to […]

Calumny

I must confess that I once compared Donald Trump to Benito Mussolini.  It was in 2016 during the Republican primaries.  As a pre-teen, I became politically aware during the late 1930s, and I well remember the Italian dictator’s frequent appearance in newsreels.  Mussolini would strut up to the podium, tilt his head back and thrust […]

True or False?

On November 19, 2020, members of President Trump’s legal team appeared before reporters to present their arguments that massive election fraud had occurred and stated their intention to mount legal challenges in state and federal courts. There were two main lines of attack.  Rudy Giuliani said that there had been many procedural violations in the […]

A Wall of Lies

Today I was talking to a friend.  We usually avoid political discussions.  I know she is a out-and-out liberal, supports Democrat Party candidates, and thinks Trump should be in jail.  Any attempt to change her mind about this would be an exercise in futility. Today she somehow let loose with her opinion that President Trump […]

Conspiracy

I tend to doubt conspiracy theories.  For a major conspiracy to occur it requires involvement on the part of a number of individuals, and that means the likelihood of exposure is very high.  Something as complicated as fixing the outcome of a Presidential election over many states would appear to almost impossible.  Yet, that very […]
