In these last days before the general election – one which some fear may be the last election we have as a free and united republic – I’d like to examine the political lay of the land, as it were, as well as continuing my ongoing assessment of the character of …

Over the last couple of months, I’ve focused on some of the philosophical fundamentals particular to leftism, and how these have played into the dramatic social upheaval and civil unrest we’ve seen in recent months. On Sept. 2, I began with a discussion around how liberalism has always been the soft …

Taking into account the criminal deportment of congressional Democrats over the last four years (one could reasonably argue for more) and the disgraceful confirmation process attendant to President Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in 2018, it was a foregone conclusion that these Democrats would vigorously …

Once upon a time, I wrote a regular column for the local Gannett fishwrap of record, having been recommended to the editor by the man who’d recently become our city’s mayor and abandoned his writing slot to avoid any conflicts of interest. Several years ago, I got kicked off of …

For those who saw the advances in national policy, prevailing attitudes and the level of hope among Americans that came out of the Civil Rights Movement despite the collective pain it took to arrive there, it is profoundly sad to witness the ginned-up civil unrest we are currently experiencing, as …
