    Sunday night, another horde of young people descended on yet another victim. This time, the target was a Philadelphia falafel shop owned by Israeli Jews. Per the usual modus operandi, a mob arrived at the establishment named "Goldie" and began shouting, “Goldie, Goldie, you can’t hide. We charge you with genocide.” Nothing demonstrates a desire for peace like hundreds of rabid animals surrounding a falafel shop. A mob targeting businesses because they are owned by Jews? It seems to me we've seen this before. According to the New York Post, Pennsylvania Gov. Josh Shapiro posted in response, “Tonight in Philly,...

    Something eerie, something creepy, is happening in the world—and now in America as well. The dark mood is brought on by elite universities, the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion industry, and massive immigration from illiberal nations and anti-Enlightenment societies. At Hillcrest High School in Queens, New York, hundreds of students rioted on news that a single teacher in her private social media account had expressed support for Israel. Waving Palestinian flags, and screaming violent threats, the student mob rioted, destroyed school property, sought the teacher out and tried to crash into her classroom—before she was saved from violence by other teachers...

    Shock. Horror. And then acceptance. “Today, millions of Americans mourned and prayed, and tomorrow we go back to work,” President George W. Bush began his address days after 9/11. “Tomorrow the good people of America go back to their shops, their fields, American factories, and go back to work.” “We cannot let the terrorists achieve the objective of frightening our nation to the point where we don’t — where we don’t conduct business, where people don’t shop,” he urged in a later press conference. Defeating the terrorists meant going on with business as usual. And we did. Life changed. Flying...

    Life has always had challenges, tragedies, crimes, all sorts of horrors. There have been brawlers, thieves and murderers since the dawn of time, so the individual crimes of modern times are perhaps not without precedent. But there are differences. There are changes in the modern era – in how such crimes are received – that are without precedent in the past. In the 1920s, Soviet Communists murdered millions of their fellow Russians. Americans and other westerners didn’t know this, largely because the press intentionally suppressed such news. Many liberal Americans, even non-communists, supported friendly relations with the Soviet Union, but...

    The Elites believed their experiment of transforming America into a “multiracial democracy” had come to fruition with Obama’s installation. It was a lock. Just keep boiling the frog. Trump’s rise scared the elites to their core. MAGA elicited an unacceptable rebirth of White America. That could not stand.

    When he embarked on his journey to discover a path to India Christopher Columbus’ lead ship was the Santa Maria. Built in 1460 it measured 62 ft with a crew of just 40, the Santa Maria would take Columbus to the New World and would change the course of human history. Half a century earlier there was another man who sailed ships who didn’t change the course of human history. His name was Zheng He and he commanded the Chinese navy during the early 15th century. His Treasure Ships were not only larger than the Santa Maria, they were more...

    In 1944 the truly remarkable movie Gaslight, starring Charles Boyer and Ingrid Bergman, was released to theaters to great success and acclaim. Its plot centers around a woman who is being manipulated by her husband to believe that she is becoming insane, even to the point where he uses her observation of the gas lights dimming in their home as proof of her hallucinations or false memories.So impactful was this movie that it gave birth to the term gaslighting, which is ”a form of psychological abuse where a person causes someone to question their sanity, memories, or perception of reality....

    The danger we all feel is coming, the apocalypse: it’s not something God is sending, it’s not something the average sinner or believer is causing, it’s what Satan’s miserable, misleadable devotees are doing to the rest of us. The devil can’t make anything happen in this world unless people help him. There would be no reason for God to send judgement otherwise. The rulers of this world divide us (otherwise indivisible) pushing tribalism through ethnicity, religion, politics: black vs white, commie vs capitalist, Islamic terrorists vs everybody, vaxed vs unvaxed, Ukraine vs Russia, Palestine vs Israel, gay vs straight, sinner...

    Neil Oliver: For decades something deliberately disruptive has been forced on the people of the West. There’s no denying it… while wars rage and people are made to hate, too many are blind to the real enemy.From around the end of WWI, New World Order builders have been undermining the foundations of the West and America, demoralizing and sexually perverting citizens, dumbing them down, dividing them against each other, and deliberately stirring them up to hate each other.

    Did you hear the roar on the streets when Milei won Argentina? It built and built, and then everyone was out on the streets shouting, from windows, inside shops, houses. It is the future, all over the world. The Netherlands on Friday. Same same. Universal rejoicing. Absurdistan does a solid line in doom, but our firmly held first principle is that every single one of us should be two or three times as rich, with massively increased scope and ability to do the things we want to do.

    America and the Fourth Political TheoryThere is no progression from the founding of the United States. Every step away from the founding principles of individual rights and freedom is not a progression, it is a degradation. The mistake that so many people have made is to believe that there has to be some form of updating the founding principles in order to move forward, but all of it goes backward. In one sense there is the recognition that the nation has modernized, but what it has done is drift backwards, towards the fiefdoms of Britain, the Lords and Commoners. America,...

    Thanksgiving is one of our most direct, maybe least commercialized holidays, that focuses on reflection and family and good food. Who we share it with, where, and the day’s menu has changed over the years, but maybe the more that it changes, the more it’s the same.

    The American population is looking more like Asians, with voluntary face masking as people go about their daily routines. Rates of COVID-19 are manageable, normal life has resumed and mandates are gone, with few exceptions at discrete businesses or schools. Yet masks have gained a foothold in American society, a remarkable change after face coverings sparked public spats and questions about cultural acceptance. “Masks are at least acceptable, even though they are not widely employed,” said William Schaffner, an infectious diseases specialist at Vanderbilt University. “At the moment, there’s a segment of the population that is very interested in health,...

    Tucker Carlson, the far-right former Fox news host known for his incendiary takes, might have actually made himself the darling of liberal Gen Zers. During a recent appearance on comedian Theo Von’s “This Past Weekend” podcast, Carlson, 54, took an unexpected angle: Supporting young workers who are exasperated by thankless work. “I just so hate that culture that treats people like they're not people,” Carlson said. “And for what?" -snip- Carlson went on to reference a video posted by a recent college graduate that went viral on TikTok. The poster, struggling with time management and work-life balance, told viewers she...

    HOUSTON (KTRK) - A Texas man with prior run-ins with the law is being hailed as a hero after he found himself in the middle of a freeway shootout and risked his life to help pull an injured officer to safety. John Lally was driving on Houston’s Southwest Freeway around 10 a.m. Saturday when he found himself in the middle of a shootout between a carjacking suspect and multiple police officers. He saw one of the officers, identified as 29-year-old Officer J. Gibson, get shot and didn’t think twice before rushing to the rescue. “I just kind of ran over...

    The latest in a series of crises, the Israel-Hamas war is turning a perfect storm for colleges and universities into a tsunami. In polls taken before October, only 36 percent of Americans said they have confidence in higher education, down from 57 percent in 2015. A majority think higher education isn’t worth the time and money; two years ago, almost 60 percent thought it was. Student debt totals $1.75 trillion, up 75 percent in the last 10 years. Most Americans think higher education is unaffordable and is going in the wrong direction.
