The March For Plumbing

April 23, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Well, the March For Science (and Earth Day) took place over the weekend, here and there, mostly in leftist enclaves. Odd that. That’s rather like having a march for plumbing, or carpentry. The difference being plumbing and carpentry pay their own way–actually make a profit–and have [Read More]

Religious Police: Coming To A Town Near You?

April 22, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    When Islam infiltrates any nation, its moves are predictable, not only because they are mandated by its faith, but because history clearly records them. Minnesota is a bastion of leftism, and because of that, has been particularly welcoming to Islam. However, Minnesotans are beginning to awaken [Read More]

On The (Solar) Road Again…

April 21, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Let us pretend, gentle readers, that we are card-carrying greenies. Let us further pretend we are absolutely dedicated to employing “renewable,” “sustainable” energy sources to the exclusion of evil carbon-based energy sources. Let us also pretend we are highly advanced–morally, intellectually and scientifically–beings, not stuck inside [Read More]

If It Walks Like A Duck…

April 19, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    An enormous amount has already been written about the Obama Administration’s coopting of American intelligence agencies for the domestic surveillance of members of the Trump campaign and eventual transition team. Virtually none of that has been written by the mainstream media, who have actually categorized it [Read More]

Arkansas: The Death Of The Death Penalty

April 18, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    As regular readers know, I have, of late, taken to posting articles on Tuesdays relating to the Second Amendment and the issues revolving around it. Today I depart—somewhat—from that tradition with a few observations about the death penalty, occasioned by the controversy over the attempt by [Read More]

Easter: And Everything Changed

April 16, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    The day that changed everything: Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, To read the rest, go here…

Climate “Science”: Tipping Over

April 15, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    Among the most common features of global warming/climate change “research” is scientific fraud all but mandated by the money and political influence underlying it. “Lost” data sets, refusal to provide data sets and methodology to other scientists for replication, computer models that are dictionary definitions of [Read More]

Mike Pence: Judge Not

By: Mike McDaniel    Matthew 7:1-3 King James Version 7 Judge not, that ye be not judged.  For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s [Read More]

Nicholas Kristoff: The Olympian Heights Of Progressivism

April 13, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    On March 4, 2017 I wrote A Voice Of Otherizing Reason discussing a New York Times editorial by Nicholas Kristof. Kristoff’s article was an apparently sincere attempt by a progressive journalist to provoke a modicum of empathy for the poor deplorables that dared to vote for [Read More]

Caitlin Miller: Terror Horror in Hoke County, 2

April 12, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    On 04-10-17, I posted Terror Horror In Hoke County, a satirical headline. Satirical, because the article spoke of the out of school suspension of one Caitlin Miller, a five year-old girl, a kindergartener. Her offense? Caitlin was brandishing a stick, a vaguely gun shaped stick, in [Read More]

By: Mike McDaniel    As a supporter of the constitution, which includes every amendment, including the Second, I am supportive of the individual right to keep and bear arms. I generally consider gun ownership to be a good thing because the Founders, in their wisdom, understood it is the ultimate [Read More]

An American President Again?

April 9, 2017 mcdanielm 0

By: Mike McDaniel    As everyone not living in a cave in the South Pacific knows by now, President Trump authorized the release of 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles from two American destroyers.

By: Mike McDaniel    Mrs. Manor and I were chatting over supper–our favorite Chinese buffet–this evening about the insanity of the left. Actually, we’re merely seeing, without any attempt at concealment, what they actually are. These are not tolerant, rational, and kindly people, but raving totalitarians.

By: Mike McDaniel    I have, since October of 2014, been writing about the bizarre and seemingly never ending succession of monumental screw ups by the Secret Service. From patronizing foreign prostitutes, to letting potential killers into the White House, to publically repudiating every agent’s oath, we have now come [Read More]

Shootout In Oklahoma

Second Amendment: Sometimes It’s About Surprisingly Little Money

By: Mike McDaniel    I’ve often written about the continuing threat to liberty represented by progressives determined to disarm the law-abiding, while doing nothing to disarm criminals. This is a never-ending threat because progressives know they can never achieve their ultimate, utopian aims as long as citizens are allowed to be [Read More]

By: Mike McDaniel    Let us, gentle readers, engage in a brief thought experiment. A criminal, through the good graces of a foolish progressive judge, is given a low bail for a charge of rape, obtains a bail bond, and is quickly back out on the street. Being a serial rapist, [Read More]
