Ben Shapiro: Do Not Blame the Freest Most Civil Society in the History of Planet Earth…

by Steve MacDonald September 17, 2017

Ben Shapiro spoke at Berkeley without incident probably because of the massive police presence with engagement orders to pepper spray and arrest anyone who got out of hand.

If American conservatism means anything…

by Steve MacDonald September 14, 2017

If American conservatism means anything, then, it means the things found at the beginning of America, when it became a nation. The classics teach us that forming political bonds is natural to people, written in their nature, stemming from the divine gift they have of speech and reason. This means in turn that the Declaration of Independence, […]

Get a Better Grip on the Convoluted War In Syria

by Steve MacDonald April 8, 2017

This video is from Ezra Klein and Vox, but it is worth watching. They do an excellent job of explaining the timeline and who is involved with whom for what apparent reasons. It also adds some interesting fuel to the Obama/Deep state Russian influence narrative: the US and Russia have been fighting on opposite sides of […]

Guest Post by Peter Lemiska: How did America become so naïve?

by Skip March 22, 2017

How did America become so naïve? Considering America’s 240-year history, 16 years is not a long time.  But for some, it’s long enough to forget the outrage and fear all Americans felt after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Nineteen hate-filled Muslim extremists exploited our flawed immigration controls and came to our country for […]

by Steve MacDonald January 17, 2017

By Joy Pullmann – The Federalist This new, anti-American approach is supplanting traditional civics—teaching kids about the structure and ideals of American government, basics about her history, and citizenship duties such as military service, voting, and jury duty. Poor civics instruction has increased over the past half-century, likely contributing to the broad decline of American […]

In 1988 both NASA and the United Nations were certain that ‘ruinous drought in the American Midwest’ was “the first scientifically documented change brought about by the Greenhouse Effect.” This scientifically documented effect would cause the interior of the American content to be drier.

Racism: Not American nor Black and White

by Scott Morales June 3, 2016

Racism is real. I know it is. I’ve witnessed it from a few different groups against a few others. Personally, I think it’s brought about by embracing ignorance and illiteracy, but that’s my opinion based on nothing but my own observation.  Racism is not a one way street. And it is not only white against […]

“America” – the trailer; America’s haters in their own words

by Skip April 29, 2014

The film, D’Souza says, seeks to “answer the central moral challenge of America’s critics, which is that America’s greatness is based on theft, plunder and oppression.” Which, I believe, includes Obama – why else does he go around the world apologizing to them for the actions of the US?  Why else would he have said, […]
