Assault on America

A Retrospective

The nearest I can guess to how it all began is that I wrote something to The Universal Spectator himself about how difficult it is to try to be civil in today’s climate and it was posted on the blog. That was in November of 2019. Consider: A democrat president nominates a person for the […]

What is the Democrat party?

It’s this: Dave Moore: The Democrat Party is… …and has always been, the party of slavery. It’s just that now, they don’t care what color their slaves are. They want all of us to be the slaves of a few. Mike Austin: The Democrat Party is… …the party of slavery, Civil War, secession, the KKK, […]

‘The Joke’ is a mirror of our times…

Every thinking American should find time to read Milan Kundera’s The Joke as soon as possible. Anyone who wants fully to understand what is being carefully orchestrated in our country should read this book. Those who are bewitched by CRT, equity as opposed to guarantees of equal opportunity, those who have fears of climate change, […]

November 9, 1938

Today marks the 83rd anniversary of what would become the genocide of European Jewry by the Nazis. Although the Nuremberg laws had already begun the process, this event catalyzed the Germans into open aggression against the Jews. The result was the extermination of 6,000,000 Jews in Europe, starting in Poland after September 1, 1939, and […]

Rage

This is the angriest I have ever been about politics in my life. Why now? They hated my beloved Reagan and called him all kinds of names. True, but they were unable to stop him from being elected twice. The left seemed to support McCain and Romney, those polite go along to get along guys; […]

September 11, 2001 – The last word…

Finally, to end this solemn 20th anniversary of 9/11 I’m linking to a great essay by Gerard Van der Leun: “What I Saw: Notes Made on September 11, 2001 from Brooklyn Heights”: […] All day the images have repeated themselves on television while the smell of the smoke persisted in my rooms. Off and on, […]

September 11, 2001 – “109 Minutes”

[Editor’s note: I first read this magnificent essay in a link that was provided, I think, by Glenn Reynolds on Instapundit.com. I’ve found it republished at several other sites but I have not found an original source for it. In any event, it’s one of the best things I’ve ever read about 9/11. I hope […]

Essential workers?

On a personal note to the world. I saw one of those weather-worn signs thanking “essential workers” today. Where is the sign thanking the people that stayed home and lost their jobs, lost their businesses, got sick anyway, didn’t learn anything at school because it was closed, and were told that they were “non-essential”? Those […]

A contrarian view of the current reigning orthodoxy

Let’s first get out of the way what we all agree on here. This withdrawal of Afghanistan could not have gone worse and the mess and violence was all avoidable. Instead of loading American planes as fast as we had to with tons of Afghanis hoping they were our allies who needed to be brought […]

Wake up and stay awake, America

The excellent Carlos Eire began his book, Waiting for Snow in Havana, with “The world changed while I slept…” Last night I didn’t get to sleep until late, so I set my alarm for 10:15. Early this morning in Cuba, citizens in the tens of thousands, rose up to protest against the regime, in several […]
