Winning with the Colonel

Here is one of those articles that is nearly impossible to shorten. Kurt Schlichter hits another home run. The Left is getting massively out-Alinskyed, and the hilarious thing is that this band of withered hippies, unemployable millennial safe-space cases, and unlovable + unshaven libfeminists don’t even know it. Oh, their masters sure know it. Soros […]

Garryowen, Sir

So yesterday came word that LTG Hal Moore, who commanded as LTC the 1st BN of the 7th Cavalry, at Ia Drang in 65 has died. From the Stars and Stripes. Retired Lt. Gen. Harold G. “Hal” Moore, the American hero known for saving most of his men in the first major battle between the […]

CEO of America, Inc?

Don Surber hit on something, maybe something important the other day. Let’s take a look. His inauguration speech was not that of a politician trying to be a statesman — there was no talk of any torches being passed on to a new generation. He simply laid down the law. He used the occasion to […]

Happy (Belated ) Birthday, Uncle Billy

Day late and a dollar short, as usual for me. Yesterday was Uncle Billy Sherman’s birthday. While I missed it, I suspect he would have approved of my post. Arguably, Uncle Billy is the man who won the Civil War, although he needed cover from Grant in the Army. But the people that admired his […]

Guns of August, Redux

Some may well call this a fantasy, but is it? Or is it what happens when America takes the gloves off, and decides some more winning is in order. “On July 29th 20 Iran successfully launches a Shahab rocket and orbiting satellite, proving it has a formidable functioning delivery vehicle, then announces it has produced sufficient […]

Duty

We’re going to stay on the topic of duty today. Yesterday, in speaking of the Queen’s accession to the throne, we spoke of her in the context of doing her duty, always. Today we will speak of two young US Marines, who did as well. The story comes to us from Mike McDaniels, who explains: After […]

Paraplegic British Cop Walks

What a remarkable story! But in a way, it’s not. It’s what happens in societies that are free to develop new ideas and revolutionary concepts. Remember, there was a day when the steam engine was just as remarkable. From Jewish News via Weaponsman Nicki Donnelly was confined to a wheelchair after being seriously injured in […]

The Hysterical Left, and Neil Gorsuch

I seem to have developed some form of flu. It’s rather distracting, so a short one today. In any case, I think Melanie is on to quite a lot here. It was an instructive year, as I watched (and participated in) as Britain discovered the words of the American founders to urge on the Brexit […]

The Jacksonian Revolt

We’ve said here often that most Europeans simply misunderstand Americans. That is true, and it is also true that Britons do better than most at understanding us, which is reasonable, given that we sprang as a nation from Brittania’s brow. Walter Russel Mead undertook in Foreign Affairs to explain how Trump arose. I think he gets […]

How we Got Trump

Mollie Hemingway wrote yesterday in The Federalist about Saying People Can’t Say ‘This Is Why Trump Won’ Is Why Trump Won. See, one of the reasons tens of millions of Americans voted for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton was that they were sick of this type of media bullying. But you’re not supposed to point out […]

Video Thursday

How about some videos today? Prime Minister May is coming over this week. What could be the best outcome for her, and for us? I think Dan Hannan has it right. Let’s do this, cousins.   This is how we all capitalize on Brexit, and the deal making Trump. A bit more, from BBC 4, […]

An Inaugural Reflection

The American inauguration is one of the great traditions of the American Republic, and of freedom itself. But why? First because since 1800, no matter what, the office of the President, which has come to be the most powerful job in the world, transfers completely peacefully from one incumbent to the next. Yes, there are often […]

The Most Recent Man to Walk on the Moon

The most recent man to walk on the moon, Eugene Cernan, Capt, USN, ret, BSEE ’56, Purdue, died Monday.

Cultural Blasphemy ? More Like Americanism

Ace quoted this piece the other day and called it very good. I agree. Yes, in Newsweek, and also yes, its liberal bias is pretty obvious. But you know we all filter things through our experiences and thus are biased. No less me than Michael Wolf. But things do work better when we talk to […]

Seriously but not Literally

I again quoted whoever it was that said we take Donald Trump seriously but not literally again last evening. It is true, we do, we voted for him because he looks to us like a real outsider, who is his own man, not an owned man of the progs. It was exactly the same impulse that […]

Irrelevant Trump Wingeing, and Some on the Free Market.

Yesterday, Jan Hansenn in comments proposed that we are not logical in our hopes for Trump, that others fear him, not because he may succeed but that he may damage the country, and finally that his business career is not all that successful. He also referenced sites that I consider mostly fake news, the New York Times, […]

For Democrats, 2017 Will Be The Year of Living Stupidly

Over at Townhall, Kurt Schlichter has caught fire again, and it’s a joy to read. Some excerpts: [Speaking of Liberals] Fear is going to make them go nuts – not the fear that Trump will be a failure, but the gut-wrenching, mind-numbing fear that Donald Trump will be a success. And it looks like Trump may […]

About this new Cabinet

A bit more about Trump’s cabinet, and why I too, think it very exceptional. From Stephen Hayward I tweeted out a few days ago that so far, President-elect Donald Trump’s senior level and cabinet picks are to the right of Ronald Reagan in 1981, and would find the approval of Calvin Coolidge. Naturally I wasn’t […]

Ordinary Joes

I’m going to talk about the upcoming Presidency some this week, and I think Jessica, in this post, speaks to part of the reason Trump won, and I thought it more reasonable to simply repost her article, than to extensively quote from it. We will be looking at some of the reasons but it surely […]

Godspeed, John Glenn. Ad Astra

Then there was the technology. Rockets exploded during testing, sometimes with the astronauts watching. In 2012, on the 50th anniversary of his Mercury flight, Glenn reflected on the danger. “It was important because of the Cold War,” Glenn said at a Smithsonian forum. “It was a new step forward, and we were proud to be […]
