  • Thoughts At The Crossroads: The World Is Crumbling, A New World Is Being Born

    It seems as if events are continuing to play right into Trumps hands. These events are only the tips of icebergs, the historical roots of which have been growing for some time. The forces that are shaping this election are almost biblical in nature. Everyday I am amazed how the world is boiling over and how our election is, in a sense, the vehicle through which the world soul is working. I can't remember any period like the one we are in now. Everything seems to be coming to a head at the same time with Hillary playing the villain...

    Reflections on the cross-section of crime, war, and public policy... Loudly, clearly, proudly, the Obama administration has declared its solidarity with the immigrant wave from the middle east. Throughout Barack Obama’s two terms – while the United States were at war, trying to stabilize Iraq and Afghanistan, even while he himself started a war against Libya and approved military actions in other countries in the region – the Obama administration has continuously facilitated the immigration of “refugees” from that dangerous, alien territory. We have watched the waves lap up onto our shores, depositing middle easterners in ever greater numbers –...
  • Why a bill about catfish will show whether Ryan's serious about regulatory reform

    The Hill ^ | July 22, 2016 | Neil Siefring
    House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) convened a needed Task Force on Reducing Regulatory Burdens as part of his legislative agenda, "A Better Way." The Speaker and his colleagues who worked on the task force have rightly identified the massive regulatory burden imposed by federal bureaucrats as an obstacle to economic growth and a distortion of our constitutional form of government. That is why it is baffling that Ryan has failed to bring regulatory reform legislation that recently passed the Senate to the floor of the House for a vote. The tale is one of catfish and courage. The catfish you...

    This year, February 27, Pokémon (pocket monster) turned 20. It was created by Japanese game designer Satoshi Tajiri for Nintendo as a video game for the old Gameboy handheld video game platform. My sons still own theirs. It was introduced to the United States in 1998. Nintendo was quick to capitalize on its popularity. The video game soon spawned a celebrated trading card game, books, movies and a television series. The tag line of Pokémon is: “Gotta Catch Em All.” Since then, at least a few of the Pokémon characters have gained international recognition. One of the most recognized characters,...

    Marxists of the 21st century (not an oxymoron; they exist) have identified a new threat to the glorious proletariat revolution: PokemonGo. Of course, this is par for the course. The Soviet Union banned The Lord of the Rings. Leftist hero (and murderous thug) Che Guevara worked to suppress Jazz music in communist Cuba. The People's Republic of China censored Back to the Future because the regime thought that time travel undermined law and order. And on and on. Now Marxist sympathizers at the socialist magazine Jacobin think the new Pokemon-themed iPhone app—which is currently being enjoyed by millions of people...

    This radio personality gets more than he bargained for when he decided to punch a set bear trap. We don’t really know who pitched this idea, but these radio personalities at Rover’s Morning Glory in Cleveland decide that Dieter should put his arm in a bear trap. Bear traps are mostly in disuse now, and the bear trap itself was made as a huge hulking trap to hold a half-ton-bear or more. A 200-pound man is definitely no match against the raw power of the double long springs that power this beast of a bear trap from the past. See...

    In Fiddler on the Roof, Tevye and Golde are portrayed as having five daughters. This is from the perspective of a 1960s family, which might commonly allow four children to be born in a family. But Jewish families would have commonly had more, possibly many more children than four or five, during the period portrayed by Fiddler, just after the turn of the twentieth century. In America, Jews were one of the target populations of "human weeds" of concern for Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control League, along with other southern and eastern European groups.

    Assuming there is enough support for the delegates to free themselves from the suicide pact that is a Trump nomination, they need a back up ticket. The chief concern I get from delegates is that if they free themselves, what do they do. I think the most obvious choice would be a Scott Walker – Ted Cruz ticket. Let me explain why. First, it goes without saying that many of the major players in the party already know that Donald Trump is heading the party to electoral defeat and a certain loss of the Senate. But these same people would...

In the case at bar, it involved a man who was under threat of removal from the United States for having committed an "aggravated felony." But it also shines a light on a rather peculiar question. Just when is embezzlement theft? Is all property from fraudulently-obtained consent a form of theft? Mena v.

    The consistent theme from my travels so far in Europe– the UK, Scandinavia, Lithuania– has been noticeably higher prices. Shockingly so, in some instances. London, where I spent a rather pleasant and rare sunny weekend with friends and colleagues, has gone from being ‘stupid’ pricey, to just plain absurd. Tube prices, taxi fares, food prices, restaurant bills, train fares… it all keeps going up. And to cap it all off, the British government’s VAT increases have ensured that absolutely everyone is paying a little bit more. Here in Lithuania, the buzz around town is the spiraling gasoline prices, which have...

    In view of the increasing failures of national, state, local government from San Jose, CA to Sweden to protect their citizens from thugs, both secular and religious, where do innocent people turn when the institutions designed to serve the community fail to do so, or worse, actually turn against the people? From my last post, John Locke explained in Chapter XIX of his Second Treatise, the legislative power, or, simply the legislative, granted by society to government is the essence of republicanism. When any force, from outside or within, alters the legislative, government is dissolved. Locke writes: "When the legislative...

    In my last post, Professor Randy Barnett described the Left’s conception of We The People as a collective, a single mass that expresses its sovereign will through congress. Here, first comes government, then come rights. Rights are what We The People collective say they are. The Republican Constitution. On the other hand, We The People of a Republican Constitution are composed of sovereign individuals. The people we send to government are fellow citizens and servants who exercise limited, enumerated, and “just” powers. Their purpose isn’t to reflect majoritarian will, but rather to secure the unalienable rights we all possess. A...

    This squib began as a review of Professor Randy Barnett’s latest work, Our Republican Constitution. However, once I got into his explication of the two contradictory visions of the Constitution and what it means for Western Civilization, I decided to linger on the high points. If the Leftist avalanche of executive branch lawmaking, group rights, collegiate snowflakes, moral relativism, and horrid supreme court decisions under a Constitution designed to secure unalienable rights leaves you puzzled, then Professor Barnett’s latest book will help clarify the insanity that is modern progressivism. For those familiar with his previous works going back to The...

    Want some inspiration? Read Lincoln's 1858 speech on the meaning of Independence Day: "Let us stick to it then. Let us stand firmly by it then." More excellent speeches from Coolidge (1926) and Reagan (1986). When in the course of human events... here's the full text of the Declaration of Independence. The 7 most bad-ass founding fathers, 5 forgotten founding fathers, and 4 more.

    Greetings All; Here is another thought provoking discussion on what we can do when the world we know & love falls apart. Last week I had posted some thoughts on using an air rifle to remove garden raiders/pests. So after talking to a friend of mine [Jim Chapman], he recommended this article from the mag. Outdoor Life. [www.outdoorlife.com] He goes through a very long list of air rifles & their different uses. Air guns have come a very long way since the days of the Daisy Red Ryder's. There are some rifles that can hit a target out to over...

    Why I Can’t Stand Author Piper Kerman of Orange is the New Black Piper Kerman’s Orange is the New Black was a best seller several years ago, which spawned a popular Netflix T.V. series of the same name. Less than 50 pages into the book I couldn’t stand her. Her behavior and attitude later in the book confirmed that feeling. The actual charge she does time for doesn’t bother me nearly as much as what kind of person Piper is – and isn’t. Among other things, Piper Kerman is a self-centered elitist snob, and I straight up do not like...
