  • And the Coronation Goes To... (Reflections on this point in the presidential nomination race)

    We can save the bother of waiting a year, and spending a lot of money and time on a primary season, by just giving the nomination to Jeb Bush now. His grandfather was a senator, his father was president, his brother was president. It’s in his genes. But on top of all that, he has genuine accomplishments of his own; Jeb Bush is a successful two-term governor of a critically important state, the electoral college powerhouse and sometime swing state of Florida. Add to all this the fact that his marriage to a Hispanic wife gives him some undefinable cred...

    ...Today, looking at the chart, there are many more “promises kept” than there are “promises broken.” Yet anyone who has been paying attention over the last few years would surely see that Mr. Obama had broken a tremendous amount of promises. So why does PolitiFact still have Mr. Obama’s promises kept at nearly twice those broken? I decided to take a look. The first thing I did was see what promises were considered broken. It’s a fairly hefty list, but some of the very largest are completely missing. The biggest, and most famous, broken promise is that “if you like...

    Here in Charlotte, UNCC has adopted a new policy about going to the bathroom. As NBC Charlotte reports: ... the University of North Carolina-Charlotte campus now allows transgender students, faculty and staff to use the restroom of their choice. This is a distinct policy change that was quietly slipped in under the radar. Previously, persons who are transgender had the option of using one of several gender neutral bathrooms on campus, or the bathroom designated for their physical birth gender. (Otherwise known as "their gender.") "It's like kind of weird to see a dude go in a girl's bathroom...

That was the day those who actually believed in diversity, pluralism and multi culturalism chose to support the fast food chain against those who disagreed with the founder who opposed gay marriage.

    This invisible government which polices the very habits and thoughts that created the culture of consumption is now managing a sustained culture of political correctness. As many modern American capitalists will tell you, money does not discriminate. The almighty and powerful dollar does not care what colour our skin may be or what god we may kneel to. It is man that discriminates on such lines. It is man who utters words and ideas that may alienate or segregate potential consumers. If corporations were to sell their products selectively to Anglo-Saxon, white Americans, they would be consciously minimizing their own...

    The assault on doctrine continues as Rome disintegrates. Vatican Radio: "It is not 'cold doctrine' that brings joy, but faith, and the hope of meeting Jesus. He who cannot rejoice is an unhappy believer: that’s what Pope Francis said in his homily at Thursday morning’s Mass in Santa Marta in the Vatican: Abraham’s joy upon hearing that as God promised, he may become a father inspired Pope Francis’ reflection Thursday. Commenting on the day’s readings, Pope Francis remarked that Abraham is old, as well as his wife Sara, but he believes and opens 'his heart to hope' and is 'full...

    In a post which may be found here, Father Robert McTeigue, SJ writes: "Very often, I hear folks speak of mercy as if it were a cancellation of justice. On this view, “justice” means, “you have to pay off your debt—or else.” “Mercy”, then, says, “About that debt—never mind!” And who wouldn’t breathe a sigh of relief when told that one’s debt has been dismissed, made irrelevant? That’s an appealing, even tempting image of justice and mercy, especially if you’ve ever been deeply in debt. Unfortunately, such a view tragically distorts justice and mercy. If left uncorrected, such a view...

    The 1860s were an interesting and exciting time in firearms development. Countries were transitioning from muzzleloaders to cartridge rifles. The American Civil War highlighted everything from muzzleloaders to Gatling guns. Many European countries utilized various conversions, including Great Britain, which used the Snider conversion designed by an American, Jacob Snider. The military quickly saw the advantages of breech loader (a firearm loaded via a chamber from the rear) versus front loader models. Besides being faster to load, the ability to do so while in the prone position meant the shooter presented a much smaller target for enemy marksmen. The British...

    North American Arms (NAA) was created from the ashes of Rock Mountain Arms, the former manufacturer of firearms designed by Dick Casull. Casull was known for reducing and expanding the single action revolver and a few of his treaured models would include a 3.5-inch revolver, chambered in .22 short and a hand cannon chambered in .450 Magnum-express. NAA is located in Provo, Utah and currently produces some of America’s finest tiny guns. They even manufacture the world’s smallest production model with their revolver chambered in .22 short (leaving respectful room for the few, even smaller custom models). Some may wonder...

Hewitt and Knope said they made eye contact with an unidentified woman who appeared to be setting up for the event. She approached Hewitt and Knope and asked if they had ever...

    In one area of waterfowl hunting however, we are completely off the charts and that is with snow geese. Known as “light geese” in the waterfowl identification world, this group includes the greater and lesser snow goose, Ross’s goose and some variations including hybrids of these. Snow geese, especially the greater snow goose, can cause great damage to the habitat they feed in. Geese are grazers and pull different grasses and plants out of the ground while feeding; they will also dig into the soil with their powerful beaks to extract more of the roots. This may not sound like...

    BOMBSHELL: Muslim Brotherhood Operative Used Hillary’s Email Server Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is burning out of control like an unchecked forest fire and it doesn’t appear that relief is on the way anytime soon. According to Stephen Hayes, a senior writer at the Weekly Standard, two of Clinton’s top aides had access to and used her personal email account while they were all employed at the State Department. He specifically mentioned Clinton’s trusted aide for twenty years, Huma Abedin, a woman with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. As most of our readers know, one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s core...

    Today we saw the triumph of resolute religious believers over the homosexual lobby. All this week the Massachusetts Knights of Columbus (K of C), a prominent Catholic mens' organization, repeatedly vowed that they would “absolutely, definitely” march in the newly “gay-inclusive” Boston St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday. But the group finally bowed to the intense pressure from traditional Catholics. At 3:32 pm on Friday afternoon they sent out an email announcing they were dropping out of the parade. After reading the reports by MassResistance and the Boston-based Catholic Action League of Massachusetts, faithful Catholics and others reacted swiftly. From...

    Do I even have to explain it, and why it’s necessary? An anecdote will help paint the picture (and by the way, I’m past the point of really caring whether my employer finds out about me writing stuff like this…maybe if they do, it could wind up being where AWSME formally makes its first stand). Very recently, in one of my day jobs, I was asked to supervise some security guards assigned at a contract site. The previous supervisor, a white male, had just suddenly quit, having gotten fed up with a lack of overall support. All of the guards...
