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 […]


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 […]

Pooh! Pooh!

The liberal new media tends to pooh-pooh any proposition or statement of fact that is contrary to its own view of things.  I well remember their reaction to early reports of Hunter Biden’s involvement with Burisma, the Ukrainian Oil Company.  Liberal news pundits, with no attempt to  investigate, vigorously proclaimed that there was absolutely no […]

Losing a Friend

I am one of many Americans who depend on Fox News for a different perspective. Over the past four years I have seen most major news networks completely abandon any objectivity in their relentless pounding of Donald J. Trump and his supporters.  Fox, on the other hand, continued to be relatively balanced and fair in […]

In Memoriam

At the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 the guns fell silent.  The world licked its wounds and buried its dead, and a cry for peace came from every mouth. Less than twenty-one years later men took up their arms again.  Oh, what fools we mortals be!  Let us […]

A Voice of Reason

We traditionalists have been terrified about the possibility of the Democrat Party controlling the Presidency, the Senate, and the House.  We visualize radicals running roughshod over all of us in an attempt to change the very nature of our union.  Monday evening, November 9,  we heard some comforting words from Senator Joe Manchin, Democrat, West […]

Beyond the Clouds

As everyone who reads this blog knows, I am very distressed by the apparent election of Joseph Biden as President of the United States.  I understand that the election is still being contested, but I believe the chances of reversal are slim. I  can appreciate why so many people voted against Trump.   He sometimes displayed […]

A Gift for the King

This a repeat of one of my favorite stories.  When I am  troubled in spirit,  I find it to be of comfort and assurance. Many years ago, in ancient China there lived a pottery maker of great renown.  He resided in a village in the northern part of the kingdom, but his fame had spread […]
