“AN EXTREMITY OF NOMINAL DEMOCRACY”

The Five Senses: Smell by Adriaen Brouwer [Circa 1631] Source: Wikipedia Barbara Tuchman was one of my two favorite historians, (the other is still alive). She published The First Salute in 1988, then died of a stroke early the next year, so this book was to have been her last salute. I ...

WE CAN’T TAKES IT NO LONGER

GOP Establishment’s Meltdown over Marion Le Pen Invitation to CPAC

In spite of the meltdown by GOP elites over Marine LePen’s invitation to speak Thursday morning at CPAC, I am looking forward to hearing this amazing woman.  Of course, those who disapprove of LePen speaking at this week’s Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) are NeverTrumpers still smarting over the ...

Trump and Sessions Must End the California Nullification Crisis Sooner Than Later (UPDATED)
