Think your Southern culture, history, and heritage are not under attack, constant attack? If you don’t, then you really better wake up and smell the coffee.
Just take a look at what is going on in New Orleans right now in regard to Confederate and historical monuments. You are about to see a major exercise in cultural genocide. Hopefully you have been keeping an eye on what has been happening in New Orleans in the last year regarding Confederate monuments and other historical statues. Continue reading →
… and That Means There NEVER Will Be A Border Wall
Well, that didn’t take long. Yesterday I reported that the Democrats were threatening to force a government shutdown if money for a border wall was included in the bill to fund the government, and one day later Donald Trump has unconditionally surrendered. Despite all of Trump’s promises, a border wall isn’t going to happen at this time, but of course he is pledging to “try again” in September. But will anything change for the Democrats between now and September? Of course not. The Democrats will continue to use these same tactics whenever funding for a border wall comes up, and because Republicans always end up backing down on the most controversial issues that means that there never will be a border wall.
Do you know why the Democrats always get virtually everything that they want? Continue reading →
We’ve finally arrived to the very bottom of that desolate hell hole where saturation propaganda rules the chattering classes; nowhere to go but down in that fearful place where just to be safe from physical harm, everyone MUST demonstrate an all-consuming hatred for President Donald J. Trump.
We’ve arrived in the surrealistic reality where Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner was the guaranteed draw to boost ratings for a new liberalized Fox News without unproven sexual harasser Bill O’Reilly.
Ms. Jenner, who rode to transgender political fame as an airtight Republican, confessed to Tucker Carlson, disappointment with Donald Trump as president on Monday night. Continue reading →
“A wise man seeks out the truth; a foolish one rejects it, or allows it to be silenced.” ~ Book of Ross; 4:45
There is an evil, a pestilence, which is spreading across America which goes by the name of Political Correctness. According to Merriam Webster’s Dictionary, political correctness is defined as: conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated. You can call it whatever you want, cloak it under whatever disguise you want, but when all is said and done, it is nothing other than censorship.
Who and what defines what is, and what isn’t politically correct? Is it politically incorrect to say something, or display an image, simply because someone or some group takes offense to it? If being offended is the only guideline that establishes what is politically incorrect then we may as well just pass a law forbidding speech, or the displaying of any images; as there will always be someone who takes offense to something. Continue reading →
To our complete ‘shock,’ a federal judge in San Francisco has just blocked Trump’s Executive Order intended to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities.
U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling moments ago after San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. Continue reading →
The latest victim in University of California, Berkeley’s war against free speech: Ann Coulter. Yes, we all know that the Left views her as a succubus. Yes, we all know that she can be offensive to some people. And yes, she has the right to voice those opinions under the First Amendment, something that the Left seems to have forgotten. The irony is that UC Berkeley used to be a bastion of free speech. Now, it’s a stronghold for shutting down such constitutionally protected activities, specifically for those who happen to have a contrary opinion to the unhinged ethos of progressivism today. It’s a fortress of ill-liberalism. Bill Maher may not be a fan of Coulter politically, but he certainly is not one who supports this nonsense. On his show Real Time, he described the school as devolving from being a cradle for free speech into a “cradle for f**king babies.”Continue reading →
Imagine for a moment that you have awoken in a strange room. You look around and do not recognize any of your surroundings. You get up and go into the bathroom to splash some water on your face and you do not recognize the image staring back at you in the mirror. You begin to panic because you have come to the realization that you don’t know your own name, where you work, where you were born; your memory is a complete blank.
Although not common, this condition has a medical term assigned to it; amnesia. Amnesia is defined as the partial or complete loss of memory; usually due to brain injury, shock, fatigue, repression, or illness. But what is amnesia if it is not the loss of a part of your history?
Each of us have our own distinct history; from the moment we are born until the moment we die our history is being written by the things we do, the things we learn and the events we witness. What if in one clean sweep all those memories were wiped away; leaving you with nothing to define who and what you are? Continue reading →
Many, many, years ago our founders warned us of the dangers of maintaining a “standing army” and how that would hinder our pursuit of Liberty.
“In time of actual war, great discretionary powers are constantly given to the Executive Magistrate. Constant apprehension of War has the same tendency to render the head too large for the body. A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans, it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.” Continue reading →
“If illegal aliens can break our laws and get rewarded for it, if illegal aliens have more rights than the taxpayers that pay the billions of dollars to support illegal immigration, then there is no law and we become a de facto lawless nation without borders and without sovereignty.”~ Ron Ewart
For over eleven years we have been writing a weekly column pointing out the injustices inflicted upon Americans and the American taxpayer by government and special interests. But no injustice is more egregious than allowing foreign nationals to invade our country by the millions where they get to profit from the invasion, rather than being put in jail or deported as they would be in any other country. No other sovereign nation on earth allows illegal immigration to exist on such an enormous scale, as does the United States of America. What is even more unfathomable is why this injustice doesn’t fester in the hearts and minds of the American people to the point where they put an immediate halt to it, or fire those in government who are responsible. What does it take for the American people to rise up against this injustice in full force and fury, as they should? Continue reading →
I’ve done what I could in this space to avoid the subject of Hillary Clinton. I don’t want to be the perennial turd in the punchbowl. I’d hoped we’d finally seen the last of that name in public life — it’s been a long quarter of a century — and that we could all move on. Alas, no. Her daughter (angels and ministers of grace defend us) seems to be positioning herself for a political career. And Clinton herself duly emerged last week for a fawning, rapturous reception at the Women in the World conference in New York City. It simply amazes me the hold this family still has on the Democratic Party — and on liberals in general. The most popular question that came from interviewer Nick Kristof’s social-media outreach, for example, was: “Are you doing okay?” Here’s Michelle Goldberg: “I find myself wondering at odd times of the day and night: How is Hillary? Is she going to be all right?” Seriously, can you imagine anyone wondering the same after Walter Mondale or Michael Dukakis or John Kerry blew elections? Continue reading →
Female genital mutilation is still a very serious issue. It was made illegal in the United States in 1996 and later condemned by bodies within the United Nations. Yet since 2012 over 513,000 women have suffered from female genital mutilation in one form or another.
The practice of female genital mutilation spiked in Europe and the United Kingdom as of late. It is a practice used often within the Muslim faith. Yet nobody wants to discuss it because it’s too embarrassing to admit that politically correct culture has gone too far.
This serious crime includes removing external female genitalia parts by use of a blade, knife, razor, scissors, sharpened rocks, or even glass. Most often it is done between the time of birth and puberty. What makes it worse is that no anesthesia is used. It can very easily lead to diseases such as HIV, tetanus, hepatitis, infection, morbid bleeding and even the chances of increased infertility and stillbirths. Continue reading →
I was instrumental in establishing the “Israeli National Skin Bank”, which is the largest in the world. The National Skin Bank stores skin for every day needs as well as for war time or mass casualty situations.
This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery.
This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza , who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Continue reading →
America is made less safe through Leftist immigration policy, as evidenced over the last eight years. Illegal aliens rob, rape and murder millions of Americans each year, because Leftist activist judges have said these illegals have “a right” to simply appear in our country, and Leftist mayors of U.S. cities refuse to enforce sound and logical U.S. immigration law already in existence, creating “sanctuary cities”. Their combined anti-American actions are directly responsible for so much misery, loss and heartache for American citizens they have sworn an oath to protect, and they have placed our U.S. national sovereignty in jeopardy.
Too many Americans blindly accept the fallacies and outright lies from the Left, that illegal aliens have “a right” to self-immigrate and a “birthright” to U.S. citizenship for any of their children born in America. Continue reading →
It appears that Obamacare is here to stay. Those doctors who grew up with the conditioning notion of utopian “social justice” love it. Those doctors who hate the government intrusion and regulation into their medical practice hate it. The American public is split as well along those lines.
Nobody really believed that Obamacare, deplorably named the Affordable Care Act, would be amended to benefit the wishes of the American people, much less repeal it. Once a bureaucracy has been ensconced and billions and billions of dollars have been spent and trillions earmarked to be spent in the future, it cannot be walked back. The welfare dependency mentality of half of the country will prevent that. Continue reading →
This weekend we were subjected to the too lazy to work crowds who prefer to march in protests about things they have no clue about beyond their rehearsed chanting. I am talking about the BLM’s and the SHOW US YOUR TAX RETURN loud mouths.
I find it so telling of their hypocrisy – How they are demanding Pres. Trump release his tax returns but are totally SILENT about the SEALED RECORDS of Obama. Now we have Lois Lerner who KNOWS her testimony will expose the corruption in the IRS – especially during the Obama reign.
Why is it the LEFT can hide and SEAL their corruption and deception but they demand that the Conservative side release everything including their used toilet paper… Continue reading →
In a blow to victims of human trafficking worldwide, a massive child sex ring was exposed in Haiti — involving international ‘peacekeepers’ with the United Nations as well as other high-level officials from around the world — and no one is going to jail.
For years, UN peacekeepers, their high-level commanders, and other ‘personnel’ from around the globe came to Haiti for sex with boys and girls as young as 12. “I did not even have breasts,” said a girl, known as V01 — Victim No. 1, according to a report out of the Associated Press.

Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson argued that MS-13, an organization he described as a “mostly immigrant street gang” a bigger threat to public safety than ISIS.
Carlson offered examples of MS-13 violence and pointed out that while there are likely a “few hundred” active ISIS members in the United States, there were 6,000 members of MS-13 domestically and 30,000 abroad.
“The synthetic solution to these conflicts can’t be introduced unless those being manipulated take a side which will advance the predetermined agenda.” ~ Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel
Just tell them what they want to hear and they’ll buy anything!
Last Thursday evening as I watched and listened to a public forum in which five elected representatives of the people offered their views on the recently adjourned session of the legislature in the state of Arkansas, it dawned on me, especially in one particular instance, what I was indeed witnessing was a perfect example of the Hegelian Dialectic in full blossom when the subject of the meeting rolled around to Tort Reform.

Cool facts you may not have known including why the process of decorating eggs is so elaborate
On Sunday, April 16, Christians celebrate Easter, the day on which the resurrection of Jesus is said to have taken place. The date of celebration changes from year to year.
The reason for this variation is that Easter always falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox. So, in 2018, Easter will be celebrated on April 1, and on April 21 in 2019.
I am a religious studies scholar specializing in early Christianity, and my research shows that this dating of Easter goes back to the complicated origins of this holiday and how it has evolved over the centuries. Continue reading →
February was black history month and if you are like me, you heard about it until it was coming out your ears. The “fake news” media never ceased to deliver unto us some little tidbit that had to do with some aspect of black history. And it didn’t all cease on the 28th of the month either.
April is Confederate History Month and I’d be willing to bet you haven’t heard the first word about it from the “fake news” media. This is one of those things that they, in their unending wisdom, have deemed you don’t need to know anything about and so the MSM will do as much as possible to make sure you remain totally unaware of this. It’s called “selective reporting 101.” Continue reading →
Author’s NOTE: This article has nothing immediately to do with our contemporary problems as a nation and as a people. And then again, it may have EVERYTHING to do with our current problems as a people and as a nation because it deals with the principles of individual freedom and sovereignty and who HAS the real power, but only if they have the courage to exercise that power. We write these kinds of articles from time to time to bring a much-needed focus to the issues. ~ R. E.
The U. S. Constitution and the Constitution of the several states do not start out with “We the Government”, or “We the Group”, or “We the Collective“, or “We the King.” They all start out with “We The People” and for good reason. The whole concept of “We the People” was and still is based on the fundamental law that each person is endowed with personal sovereignty over their lives and their property. America’s total foundation was built upon sovereignty resting in the people, not the government. Government was limited to seventeen (17) enumerated powers. All other rights were reserved unto the states and the people. Each individual person is equal to all other persons, as joint tenants in a government created by them, with the right to throw off that government or “….. to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” Continue reading →
Who outnumbers who? The deranged, with differing degrees of severity, dominate most important institutions—education; media; politics/government all levels; also the military/industrial/surveillance/banking complex.
The variably deranged dominate the indoctrinated young; the power-hungry, warmongering elites & neoconservatives; the Democrat party; the propagandized “victims”, e.g. gays, lesbians, LGBTQ’s, blacks, Hispanics, OTM’s (other than Mexicans), “refugees”, illegal aliens….illiterates, semi-illiterates, pyschos, neurotics, misfits & other “challenged” individuals.

One of the most visible effects of Mr. Donald Trump’s presidency is that it has triggered an open resistance from the stealth forces that for last several decades now have been driving the theft of America. On one hand, the said resistance makes it more urgent to deal with the threat that the said forces pose to this nation, which adds to the already heavy burden of reversing decades of devastating damage inflicted by the Liberal demagogues, most notably, by the Obama administration, (formerly) embedded in the political branches of the U.S. government. On the other hand, it allows for a fairly accurate assessment of how deeply entrenched in the structures of political power, both at federal and state levels, they have been. I am not particularly easy to impress, but my jaw dropped when I saw the scope of the wide-spread plot of the hostile takeover of America as it recently unveiled itself in its entirety in front of eyes of mostly unsuspecting Americans.
To see the above plot from a better perspective, let’s start from some basic facts… Continue reading →
