Left cares about winning, not kids

Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D.

On a daily basis, America’s so-called “family courts” separate hundreds to thousands of children from their fathers without so much as a peep from the Democratic left — in fact, they created the separation laws.

In contrast, the separation of illegal-immigrant children from their fathers (and mothers) is met with howls and screeches heard across the land (“Democrats in no rush to help Trump, GOP clean up family separation mess,” Web, June 19). Continue reading

You Aren’t That Big a Deal’: A Message the Self-Esteem Generation Desperately Needs to Hear

When we took away chores and age appropriate tasks, we ensured that children would not have self confidence in their abilities to overcome the trials of life. We took away their failures to protect them. In return, they did not receive the opportunity to learn and to grow. That could be why this generation is known as the snowflake generation that melts when the heat of daily life is turned upon them. It is time to return to traditional parenting and to raise self-confident children again. After all, the synonym for self-esteem is narcissism. ~ Rosemary Stein, MD

There is a meme that speaks directly to the hearts and minds of the overly self-conscious. Perhaps you’ve seen it; it goes something like this: ‘Brain: “I see you are trying to sleep. May I offer you a selection of your most embarrassing memories from the past 10 years?”’ Continue reading

Ross: Unquestioning Allegiance Makes Not A Free Man

Recently the National Football League, or NFL, passed some new rules regarding the actions of the players during the playing of the National Anthem. Apparently, and I may be wrong because I don’t pay that much attention to football, every player on the field MUST stand during the playing of the National Anthem, but players do have the option of remaining off field while it is being played/sang. Continue reading

Frye: On the Beach

Time is quickly running out as billions of lives may soon be extinguished. Will you at least THINK ABOUT THAT? Can you stifle you’re disbelief long enough to consider the truth of what a nuclear exchange will lead to? We may be at the threshold of the next great mass extinction on this planet brought about by inhuman beings.

Donald Trump is clearly a demented individual having so many emotional issues an entire book could be written elaborating upon them but he is also an empty suit being visibly managed by everyone around him from his extraterrestrial looking daughter and Jew son-in-law to a gang of Jew neocon toadies and their Deep State Complex surrounding him, making it difficult to tell who the real Donald Trump actually is beyond his orange skin, faded eyes, blubbery waistline and blustering unwarranted ego.

Opponents of free market capitalism are largely ignorant of what it is

Several recent polls, plus the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders, demonstrate that young people prefer socialism to free market capitalism. That, I believe, is a result of their ignorance and indoctrination during their school years, from kindergarten through college. For the most part, neither they nor many of their teachers and professors know what free market capitalism is. Continue reading

Shocking Of What Is Being Taught To Our Children

It’s Not Natural

I continue to be amazed at what we are teaching our children. Those (whoever they are) that are in charge of what is being taught to our children in America’s public schools have lost their stinkin minds.

They’re “public” schools, you know. Meaning that what is taught is what is commonly seen as “normal” in the public sector. Continue reading

Frye: The Walking Dead ~ REDUX

* For purpose of clarification: Communist is an alternative for the term Jew used with historical and literary expediency in this writing as they are factually one and the same. ~ S. F.

Let’s cut right to it, there’s going to be blood on the floor here…… If the following strikes you as the ravings of a lunatic, let me assure you that this commentary has been severely edited for prudence.

Jews are far more dangerous to the Constitution and the free world than any army or enemy America has ever faced. They are barbarians inside our gates, consuming from within by exploiting every weakness endemic to an open society, thus making them not only incompatible but more importantly, aggressively hostile to the survival of the United States of America and the stability of the World at large.

Dickens: Moral Compass?

What’s happened to our moral compass? When did we lose our sense of direction? The assertion that this country as not based on Judeo-Christian values is simply not true.

Consider the phrase “In God We Trust.” It clearly indicates that this country trusts and bases our very existence on a Higher Power: that was the intent, anyway. Try as we might to deny it, we cannot survive without something, a code, to guide us. It seems apparent that the founders of this country knew that without a solid foundation we would be like a rudderless ship in the ocean at the mercy of the prevailing winds. Something tells me that these foresighted people envisioned our modern age and somehow knew what we would face. They didn’t necessarily know the date or time, but they knew that we would face this crisis of direction and division and that our only hope would be a strong moral compass: that being our trust in that Higher Power. I believe that the founders were well schooled in world history. They understood it. They learned from it. They applied it as they created this country. It’s truly amazing how immutable the truth really is. Continue reading

Pendry: Our Orwellian Hole

In the internet era, the amount of information we offer up about ourselves is staggering. No one has to dig around for what we freely give. We do it without much thought and seem concerned only when there is a breach revealing our credit card numbers and even then there is a thriving industry to cure that ailment. Practically every app we download to our phones asks us for access to virtually every piece of information we carry around or receive. Then, we appear shocked when our information is used for purposes we did not intend – like unwittingly helping out political campaigns. Continue reading

The terror and horror of school gun violence

A phenomenon born of three seismic forces of change…

Thousands of years of agriculture married 95% of the population to the soil. In less than a century the miracle of Industrial Revolution reduced agriculture to 5% in the U.S leaving 95% dependent on the industrial world. The new economy witnessed the first decline of the economic and social units that were the mother centered extended form families – the backbone of culture for centuries. Continue reading

Hall: China’s Trade War Against America

The Upcoming Trade War Between The U.S. And China Will Be The Biggest In The History Of The Planet

The Chinese regime is the creation of the globalists. Going back to the Nixon era, Henry Kissinger set into motion a staged and preferential trading system that would inevitably build the Red Communists into the very model for global dominance. Approving China into the World Trade Organization guaranteed a distorted playing field by favoring PRC and allowing their draconian conditions to engage in business by Oriental Marxists.

Even The Guardian reports that World trade rules too weak to stop China distorting market, “It is now clear that the WTO rules are not sufficient to constrain China’s market-distorting behavior.” Continue reading

Driessen: Politicians must consider unintended consequences

Mileage standards and tariffs help some – while penalizing countless others, often severely

It’s become a recurring, frustrating pattern, as legislators and regulators ignore the immutable laws of unintended consequences, to drive political agendas or aid favored constituencies, while harming others.

A good example is corporate average fuel economy (CAFÉ) standards on vehicles. Originally enacted in 1975 to offset the impacts of the OPEC oil embargo and US oil price controls, and slow the rapid depletion of oil reserves, the mileage standards grew increasingly stringent. During the Obama years, the earlier justifications were replaced with claims that a vastly tougher 54.5 mpg standard would somehow help prevent “dangerous manmade climate change.” Continue reading

Oceania, ‘Tis For Thee: The World of ‘1984’ ~ Forming Now!

“Oceania” was a nation described in George Orwell’s “1984” as being comprised of Britain (called “Airstrip One,”) and the United States. There were two other superpowers, namely Eurasia and Eastasia. Other lands rich in resources were contested over, such as Africa and assumingly South America…lands never kept by any of three Super-states for any significant period. The “flux” in conquests was exactly what the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) of our time would have termed “necessary” to justify large expenditures: War as the focal purpose, rather than the exceptional event. Continue reading

America Is In Utter Jeopardy

President Trump recently signed the largest six month spending bill in United States history. Illegal border crossers are having a field day crossing our southern border like they did during the Obama presidency. Border officials are back to catching and releasing those who shuffle into our republic illegally. Leftist democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer are still celebrating the massive funding of sanctuary cities. Obviously neither Chuckie or Nancy have any regard for American born sovereigns and legal immigrants who are often raped, robbed, or beaten to death by illegal border crossers who moonlight as dastardly MS 13 gang members. Continue reading

The Danger of the Progressive Agenda

Recently Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie, a policy advisor for the Catholic Association, wrote about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2019 budget “Realizing the Promise of Progressive Government”. Dr. Christie is troubled and takes great exception to the Governors radical policy initiatives on abortion as stated in the budget.

Dr. Christie begins his critique with this statement, “The promise of this style of government seems to be to fulfill every liberal dream about abortion in one fell swoop, or at least the dreams that haven’t already come true in a state that has the highest rate of abortion in the United States”.

The Death Of Democracy

Yes, we live in deeply troubling times. I’m afraid the US is following history’s course to a tee, as a declining super power (or one certainly challenged by others) by ratcheting up all

Death of Democracy by gibraltarium

sorts of schemes to sabotage the other great powers, just to hold on to its “unipolar moment” since the end of the Cold War. The US will not succeed, but the results will be terrible for the American nation and catastrophic on a global scale. ~ A. Carlson

Anyone who thinks democracy doesn’t matter may be in for a rude shock later this year, when we know the result of America’s mid-term elections. The Deep State is on course to take control of Congress. If this happens, it will be the next step in a global trend of side-lining democracy in the West, driven in large part by American foreign policy. It has led to governments everywhere increasing control over their people, in an inversion of democratic principles. Continue reading

California Democrats Ready to War Again to Keep Their Slaves

Liberal fascist Democrats are trying to portray Republicans as white supremacist Nazi bigots intent on destroying the race of “brown people” whom California Democrats are now championing against the American people. The Golden State is becoming a satellite of foreign powers by importing millions of illegals. Democrats, by giving them the right to vote, essentially make California sovereign over the federal government with the power to inflict its corrupt laws on the nation. The fools think they are America’s “economic engine” when they have become America’s toilet. Continue reading

What kind of a World do we want our Grandkids to Live in?

Everything that means anything is local.

Many people think national news is what makes all of our futures. This is wrong. Where we live defines how we live. What our neighbors believe and what our children are being taught defines what we are and what we will become. In other words, what kind of a world do we want our children and grandchildren to live in.? Continue reading

Free speech can’t be ‘zoned

The letter below was published in The Washington Times on Wednesday, March 7, 2018.
Gordon E. Finley, Ph.D.

As a retired State University System of Florida faculty member, I applaud the Florida legislature for banning those ridiculous “free speech zones” and returning state public-university campuses to their longstanding and traditional role of providing the opportunity for students to explore the life of the mind (“Florida lawmakers ban ‘free speech zones’ on college campuses,” Web, March 6).

This is what a university education traditionally has been all about — but it is denied to contemporary students by political correctness and enforced by the social justice warriors. Continue reading
