Not So Long Ago

My grandfather Jordan was born in 1841.  There were no telephones, televisions, radios, airplanes or automobiles.  The chief mode of transport was a horse drawn conveyance.  Steam locomotives and the first rail lines had been introduced only a few years earlier.  Great sailing ships still crossed the oceans. At the age of 19, in the […]

Wading Into the Swamp

There may be some of you who doubt the existence of the swamp.  Perhaps the following facts will change your mind. Michael Sussmann, former lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign, is on trial for lying to the FBI in late 2016 as he attempted to sabotage the campaign of Donald Trump.  The person he lied […]

Trump Agonistes

I title this post “Trump Agonistes”, but it is really me that is having the struggle, and Trump is the reason for it. As things stand at this moment, it appears very likely that Trump will be the standard bearer for the Republican party in 2024.  The party has a number of successful governors and […]

Mule Kicking

As was to be expected, critics have hammered D’Souza’s 2,000 Mules and his charge that there was election chicanery on a large scale.  Thus far I have seen nothing in their arguments to dissuade me from a belief that the documentary is accurate and D’Souza’s charge valid.  Check it out for yourself, and if you […]

Eighty Years Ago

Eighty years ago, May 22, 1942, in the south Pacific, the badly damaged USS Yorktown, American aircraft carrier, was steaming back to Pearl Harbor.  Two weeks earlier the Yorktown and anther large American fleet carrier, the USS Lexington, had fought it out with Japanese carriers in the Battle of the Coral Sea.  The Lexington was […]

What About Roe?

The American public recently became aware that the United States Supreme Court is likely to reverse their long-standing Roe v Wade decision. My thoughts are as follows: The Constitution says nothing about abortion.  The decision to reverse is proper. According to the 10th amendment, the matter will revert to the states. The reversal of Roe […]

Insanity

I fear that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have fallen off the plateau of rationality and are sliding into the pit of insanity.  In their reaction to news that the Supreme Court might overturn Roe v Wade, they introduced legislation in the House and Senate to codify Roe.  Actually, they proposed to go far beyond […]

Balderdash!

Balderdash is a term applied to senseless, stupid, or exaggerated talk or writing.  Another word for it is “nonsense.” I recently read a post by a liberal blogger that contained the following assertions. “The Republican record is catastrophically bad. First came the Trump presidency with its endless disasters crowned by Trump’s 30,573 lies during his […]

America Divided

A few years ago, Professor Joseph Olson of the Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, analyzed some results from the 2012 Presidential election and came up with the following interesting facts. Number of States won by Obama: 19   Romney: 29 Square miles of land in counties won by Obama: .58 mil   Romney: […]

Back to the Harp

Last week I spoke to two conservative friends about my enthusiastic reaction to the documentary 2,000 Mules.  They did not appear very interested.  One of them spoke strongly against any ongoing attempt to re-litigate the 2020 election.  He believes we must concentrate on winning the next election and stop harping on our loss.  He also […]
