DEALING WITH THE SEPARATE REALITY OF THE LEFT

Vassar Bushmills Over Easter weekend my wife and I watched a half-dozen Easter and Passover-themed films. Among them was the 1968 film “Shoes of the Fisherman” which actually laid out the then-current state of liberalism in Hollywood. The Catholic Church, played by Anthony Quinn, as it’s new pope, agreed to give away the Church’s entire wealth; [Read More]

Congressman Lee Zeldin Rips Anti-Semite, Ilhan Omar, on House Floor (video)

The three stooges (Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar) in the House of Congress are the gift to cowering Republicans that keeps on giving.  Kudos to Congressman Lee Zeldin for daring to go where Kevin McCarthy among others are too spineless to go.

MUSIC TO MARCH ON CONGRESS WITH

Vassar Bushmills In 2010 I began thinking about what a million-citizen March on Congress might look like, if citizens without gawky hats might actually want to scare the bejeezus out of those people found there. No trash, no foul language, no shooting moons, or pornographic placards… … just a mean look [Read More]

THE CIRCLE SHALL NOT BE BROKEN

Vassar Bushmills By God! I sat up with a start this morning, around 2:04. It hit me, “Why are we all pretending this is politics…when it’s revolution?” Their media, our media, their talk-show people, our talk show people, all have to pretend to be matter-of-fact about a situation that is [Read More]

I Go Into The Desert Wilderness And Meet More Millennials (They LIVE).

It was such a nice day here in the wilds of New Mexico—48* and partly cloudy— that I took an excursion out to the high desert volcanoes on the West Mesa. Essentially this is a kinda set-aside, wilderness area with seven DORMANT volcanoes. Zillions of years ago, these same volcanoes [Read More]
