To listen to almost all the reporters on Fox News—and most of the Establishment Media experts—after the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, you would have thought that President Donald Trump needed to do exactly what the Reverend Jimmy Swaggart did back a few years ago: get on TV and cry and bawl, and...

There is a question that increasingly arises, uncomfortably, in our conversations…from brief exchanges at work at the water cooler, at home with family, after church on Sunday, with our email messages to friends and associates. To watch any amount of television news these days, to switch back and forth between, say, CNN and Fox, and... Read More

The news broke (in England) back on May 26 that David Garrow, the Pulitzer Prize winning biographer of the late Martin Luther King Jr., had unearthed a cache of new documents, many supposedly under strict lock-and-key at least until 2027, detailing some horrific cases of sexual activity by King, as many as forty such incidents,...

Back this past November 2018 Patrick J. Buchanan celebrated his 80th birthday. For those of us who have known him over the years and counted him as a friend it appears as if time has stood still—it seems only yesterday that Pat was holding forth on CNN’s “Crossfire,” and that he was running for president,...

I’ve never been much of a fan of Roseanne Barr. I never watched her earlier sitcom, Roseanne (1988-1997), but, then, I normally don’t watch much network television either. Unlike some conservatives I wasn’t that excited by the renewal of the show by ABC in mid-season in 2017, and I am not that surprised that the... Read More

For the past thirty-five years (officially since 1986) the third Monday in January has been celebrated as a federal holiday, Martin Luther King Day. Federal and state offices and many businesses either close or go on limited schedules. We are awash with public observances, parades, prayer breakfasts, stepped-up school projects for our unwary and intellectually-abused... Read More

The headline news that Keith Ellison, the Deputy Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), has come out via his Twitter account with what appears to be an off-hand endorsement of the domestic terrorist group, Antifa, has made some waves and raised a few eyebrows. Here is what The New York Post [January 3] reported:... Read More

The Classic American Western As Emblem of Historic American Culture
Since the beginning of the twentieth century one of the newer art forms and expressions of our culture has been cinema—“motion pictures.” It was the novelty of live theater and acting captured as moving images in film and presented on a screen. In many respects, like other art forms, film represents what is happening in... Read More
The words race and racism have become “devil terms” in American politics and culture—ideologically weaponized concepts to advance a cultural Marxist agenda and basically repel and silence any opposition to that agenda. In a widely-reported op-ed published recently in The New York Times (November 11, 2017), black law professor Ekow N. Yankah wrote that when... Read More

Usually every Thursday I join a group of men I used to work with for lunch. Included in that group are a retired Army colonel, a couple of museum specialists, three PhDs, and a former high-level political figure—all of us retired. This past Thursday, after lunch, we went together to an early screening of the... Read More
I'll be the first to admit that I haven't watched a full televised Academy Awards event since John Wayne won for Best Actor for his role in "True Grit," and that was way back in 1970. Last night was no exception. Indeed, over the past several decades as Hollywood has become so suffocatingly and sneeringly... Read More
The Perversion of Education and the Need for Radical Reform
Dr. Bruce Frohnen has written a strikingly topical article in The Imaginative Conservative. It is titled, "History, Hate & Hysteria: The Unhinging of the Academic Left," and it should be read by all educators, especially those in history and the social sciences. In it Professor Frohnen examines the current state of academia and of higher... Read More

The Battle Flag and the Attack on Western Culture
Too much misinformation has been generated recently about Confederate flags and monuments. A great amount of it floating about on the Internet is as palatable and useful as what my neighbor cleans up out of his horse paddock each week---although what my neighbor cleans out actually has a better and less pungent odor about it...
