  • Hillary Fired for Lies, Unethical Behavior from Congressional Job: Former Boss

    Dan Calabrese’s new column on Hillary Clinton’s past may bring the curtain down on her political future. Calabrese interviewed Jerry Zeifman, the man who served as chief counsel to the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate hearings, has tried to tell the story of his former staffer’s behavior during those proceedings for years. Zeifman claims he fired Hillary for unethical behavior and that she conspired to deny Richard Nixon counsel during the hearings: As Hillary Clinton came under increasing scrutiny for her story about facing sniper fire in Bosnia, one question that arose was whether she has engaged in a...

    Hey everyone! A follow up to my announcement earlier this week. My book is available today on Amazon. If you like quirky, satirical, historical fiction with a bit of a western flavor, it'll make great beach reading this weekend and for the summer. I think you'll find it timely, too, as it's an allegorical tale about fake news and the gullibility of some folks to drink it up. If you want to take a look, check the link out.

    On Sept. 1, 1864, Union forces under Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman, victorious at Jonesborough, burned Atlanta and began the March to the Sea where Sherman's troops looted and pillaged farms and towns all along the 300-mile road to Savannah. Captured in the Confederate defeat at Jonesborough was William Martin Buchanan of Okolona, Mississippi, who was transferred by rail to the Union POW stockade at Camp Douglas, Illinois. By the standards of modernity, my great-grandfather, fighting to prevent the torching of Georgia's capital, was engaged in a criminal and immoral cause. And "Uncle Billy" Sherman was a liberator. Under President Grant,...

    It is the Decision of the Holy Spirit and Us – A Reflection on the Catholicity of the Early Church Msgr. Charles Pope • May 17, 2017 • The first readings at daily Mass this week recount the Council of Jerusalem, which scholars generally date to around 50 A.D. It was a pivotal moment in the history of the Church, because it would set forth an identity for Her that was independent of the culture of Judaism per se and would open wide the door of inculturation to the Gentiles. This surely had a significant effect on evangelization in...

    I'm not sure if this is allowed, but I'll try and the mods can take it down if it's not. I have a new book coming out on Amazon this Memorial Day weekend, just in time for summer reading. If you like quirky, funny, historical fiction, take a look. I think you'll find the book timely as it is an allegorical tale on fake news and media bias -- and its impact on a gullible public. I'll post a link for the book, which will be initially available on Kindle, later this week when it goes live. Meantime, here...

    There have always been wars and rumors of wars. There have always been earthquakes. There have always been famines and pestilences. There have even been "signs in the heavens" in times past, like the Star of Bethlehem. Yet it is not any one of these signs that tells us that Christ's return is near, it is the convergence of these quickly, all at once. The reestablishment of Israel. The conquest of Jerusalem. Globalization simultaneous with more simultaneous armed conflicts (56 at last count) than at any other time in history. Large earthquakes in short-succession. Genuine up-trend in earthquakes of >...

    Friday, May 12th, is the first of several major milestones this year.  This day marks exactly 70 prophetic years since the rebirth of Israel on May 14th, 1948.  In the Bible, prophetic "days" or "times" appear to consist of 360 days each (e.g. Daniel 7:25, 9:24-27, 12:7, Revelation 11:2-3, 12:6, 12:14, 13:5).  In addition, this Sunday Israel celebrates its 69th anniversary, which means that Monday begins the 70th regular solar year since Israel became a nation.  Psalm 90:10 tells us that a generation is 70 or 80 years long. From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its...

    Maybe we should be celebrating Cinco De May more like this: Whereas Batalla de Puebla (Cinco De Mayo, 1862) was inconsequential to its eventual fall to the French and to the ultimate fall of Mexico. And whereas "the Congress of the United States are unwilling, by silence, to leave the nations of the world under the impression that they are indifferent spectators of the deplorable events now transpiring in the Republic of Mexico; and they therefore think fit to declare that it does not accord with the policy of the United States to acknowledge a monarchical government, erected on the...

    As I've studied Revelation 12 and whether or not the astronomical alignment on September 23rd, 2017 fulfills the heavenly sign that the Apostle John saw, I've tried to poke as many holes in it as I can.  An argument is only strong if it can withstand continual scrutiny.  I've heard dozens of supposed rebuttals and arguments against it and I've even prayed that if this isn't the sign for God to show me where we went wrong in identifying it as such.  Yet after dozens of objections falling flat I find my confidence in this theory only growing.  More...

    Donald Trump is far from the first president to enlist his children and in-laws in the work of the White House. Look back through history, and it turns out that plenty of presidencies have been a family affair. Eighteen sons served in their fathers' White Houses, most of them with the title of "secretary to the president," according to Doug Wead, who served in the George H.W. Bush White House and has written books on presidential children and the 2016 campaign. Fourteen daughters or daughters-in-law have taken on responsibilities in the White House, mostly ceremonial but sometimes more substantive, says...

    Gold had been discovered in Georgia in 1828, resulting in a Democrat-controlled Congress rushing through the Indian Removal Act, which passed by a single vote in 1830. It was signed by Democrat President Andrew Jackson and carried out by Democrat President Martin Van Buren. Though unauthorized by the Tribe, prominent Cherokees John Ridge and Elias Boudinot felt Indian removal was inevitable and negotiated with Washington politicians to sign the Treaty of New Echota of 1835. Elias Boudinot, publisher of the Cherokee Phoenix - the first newspaper published by an American Indian tribe - wrote in editorials that the removal was...

    Here's a fun fact: Not surprisingly, after being trashed and trampled by the Left for several generations, there has been a downward spiral in the study of history on American campuses from 18 percent in 1971 to 9 percent today, according to historian Daniel Pipes. And, according to the American Historical Association, the reason appears to coincide with the percentage of historians who specialize in women and gender, which has risen from 1% to nearly 10%.during the past 40 years. Not surprisingly, the study of gender is the most important subfield in the academy, followed by cultural history and environmental...

    There is a vast span of human existence of which little is known. Archeological ruins from the beginnings of civilization have been unearthed, and there have been occasional discoveries of a more prehistoric nature, but not much else. The impermanency of our physical existence is responsible for this void; our flesh and body fluids rapidly decompose after death. Unless preserved by extraordinary means, even skeletal remains eventually crumble and disappear. Early peoples did not practice ceremonial burial. Left to the elements, bodies soon completely decomposed: "Dust to dust" was not a mere poetic metaphor. It was a recorded observation of...
