Who Drew First Blood + Five Friday Reads 11/15/19

They will never accept culpability. Whenever I wrote on Weimerica and started noticing that the elite media was noticing Weimar similarities, I would find media members stunned and shocked that a reaction or any push-back was happening. Why? How come? Where did this come from? It grew tiresome. It applies to everything. White flight. Why…

In California, The Future Is Now

Observers note that California resembles America’s future with no demographic slice being a majority. Looking at the age pyramid, we know this is a lie as California moves to a Hispanic plurality on its way to a Hispanic majority. America in mid-century will be a quarter or so Hispanic but this of course depends all…

A Quad Cities Newcomer Perspective

Note: This was intended for publishing in one of the local papers for Davenport, IA. The Quad City Times, and the Catholic Messenger both refused to publish it. Greetings to my fellow residents of the Quad cities.  I am new here, having just relocated here from the Baltimore area.  After about a week in town…

American Domestic Politics Built Our Competitors

President Trump has not been the flamethrower to the establishment that some hoped for but this is an issue of expectations. Remember when you thought Jeff Sessions was a competent good guy? A lot of mistakes were made with the transition team, staffing and Jarvanka, but there are two bright spots that stand out considering…

Immigrants Are Assimilating

The last week has seen the return of the liberal outrage over out of context, sharp and effective Trump team messaging. President Trump’s team took an old quote from Rep. Ilhan Omar about 9/11 and turned it into a viral advertisement correctly portraying her and by association the entire open borders left as against America….

The Pete Wilson Presidency

There is definitely a disappointment in the turn taken by the Donald Trump presidency. There are folks calling it the Jeb Bush presidency. The only downside is the inflammatory tweets and statements puff Trump up into an Orange Man Bad caricature. This is also the presidency that Ross Perot would have had, except he would…

BAP, Classical Man, and the Christian Bugman

There is a great anecdote about Karl Marx, relayed to us by Engels, which claims that upon hearing of the abuses to which his work had been employed by his followers, the Old Master responded, “je ne suis pas Marxiste.” Looking about the Catholic world today, I wonder sometimes if St. Thomas of Aquino wouldn’t…

The Jewish Tribal Crack Up

On the edge of the punditry, some observers noticed the hypocrisy of some of the largest advocates for open borders and the soft spot they have for a certain ethnostate with strict immigration controls. The cracks were present even then, but only after Trump’s arrival did they erupt. New York Times has steadily noticed it….

Cloak In Woke – Woke Capital As A Strategy

The gay cries that they are the underdog while all of us scroll past a month’s worth of PRIDE tweets from every corporation on the globe. This is woke capital. The nexus of progressive state religion and big business is out in the open and increasingly obnoxious. Corporations are not the only ones though as…

Hijacked Exploration Instincts

Avoiding the news is a good strategy. The random noise that is recorded and reported often distracts the consumer. The noise generates emotion. One emotion that seems to grow if one were to note the trends in news is confusion or disgust at the degradation of individuals or death of individuals through their need to…
