Marching for Life, Trump, and May

What’s this, I hear, more videos? Well, yeah, they do something that my words about something can’t. And right now, things are moving so fast, I can’t keep up anyway. And that’s a very good thing! 🙂 We talked a bit about Mrs. May’s speech yesterday, here it is.   Here’s President Trump at the […]

Mrs. May Goes to Washington

And so, Mrs. May is here. Came over yesterday, and will meet the President today. That’s as it should be, she’s first, the leader of our oldest friends, and strongest ally, and our cousins, so kind of a family reunion. Last night she spoke at the Republican Congressional winter retreat, the first world leader to […]

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, […]

Times and Seasons

Yesterday, I read some people complaining that Trump hasn’t stopped DACA yet. This is Wednesday, he was inaugurated last Friday, so give me a break. He’s accomplished more in the part of the last week than most presidents do in their first term. Take a deep breath and relax, he’s not going to do everything […]

A Noisy Beginning

Well, it was quite a weekend, wasn’t it? Never, in my lifetime and that includes 1968, have I seen so much stupidity on the streets. We, of course, knew the childish left was going to throw a tantrum, but looking in occasionally on Saturday, I just couldn’t get over how obsessed by sex these women are. […]

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 […]

Interegnum

Not in the classical sense, of course. Not for a second is the US Presidency vacant. That is why the Vice President is sworn in first. If something had happened to Obama and Trump yesterday, Pence would have simply taken over. As nearly always, the founders provided for all possibilities. Here is, what President Trump […]

45 Finally

And so for the forty-fifth time, we in America will pass the presidency to a new man. That man is Donald Trump, it hasn’t mattered since 8 November whether you (or I) think that is the greatest thing ever or the worst. As I say so often, reality is real. He joins an uninterrupted line that […]

A Bit of American Leadership

Sometimes that’s all it takes to change the world. Recently, Paul Bonecelli, wrote in The Federalist: President-elect Trump’s nomination of Rex Tillerson is clear evidence that Trump wants to change U.S. foreign policy and its posture in the world. For him, arguably no other choice would do but of an outsider with a record of setting […]

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.

Gove on Trump

So Donald Trump gave an interview the other day, to Michael Gove and Kai Diekmann of Bild. Gove’s impressions were written up in the £ Times, it’s pretty interesting. So let’s look at some of it. During the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump had an insult for every rival. Marco Rubio was “little Marco” […]

Letter from a Birmingham Jail

So today is Martin Luther King Day, one of the American holidays that are only for some of us, who get the day off – mostly government types. Well, kind of figures doesn’t it, and yet it doesn’t really bother many of us. In any case, Dr. King had some very important things to teach […]

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 […]

Video Saturday

So, it’s Saturday. How about a video round up, of some others views. Let’s start with Pat Condell   A bit harshly stated, perhaps, but I can’t say that I disagree with him. The Right Angle guys have something to say, as well.   And a bit on fake news, and where it comes from. […]

National Sovereignty Rising

Well, we all made it through 2016 for better or worse. It was quite a year, with many political things roiling the waters. A lot of them were merely personal, and of no account to the rest of us. Especially for us Americans, who have dealt with a president for 8 years who is a […]

Obama’s Legacy Of Deceit

It’s been quite a while since we featured Victor Davis Hanson, no good reason for it, it simply hasn’t happened. But he wrote one of the best articles on why Obama’s legacy is so tainted with most of us. Here’s some In its remaining days in power, the Obama administration suddenly punished Vladimir Putin’s Russia […]

Less than a Fortnight

We haven’t said much here about Russia. There’s a reason for that. The Adaptive Curmudgeon (wonderful name, BTW) spells out that reason for us and for you. Nobody regrets this advice: “If you’re doing a dumb, dangerous thing for a bad reason, or aren’t really clear on the reason… stop it.” Reasonable people can (and […]

Dear Hollywood,…signed America

Well, happy Monday, other than some commenting, here and elsewhere, I try to take Sundays off, so often my article on Monday is a bit rushed (lame too, sometimes). In any case, this video, from Townhall and The Federalist, has ben kicking around for a bit. But I wanted to run it the first time […]

Once More Into the Breach, Dear Friends?

We have spent most of last week trying to explain to Europe why we are quite happy with the election of Donald Trump. As I reflect on what we have said, and read, it struck me that one cannot understand this intellectually. At one point I was asked if I identify as Anglo-Saxon. Well in […]

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 […]
