Living as a Patriot Under Senile Joe

1,444 words

If you’re anything like me, you watched with frustration as Joe Biden stumbled through his inaugural speech and then proceeded to do away with many of Donald Trump’s great executive orders. In the meantime, QAnon’s prophecies did not manifest. Jesus didn’t return to save the Chosen People of America from this cognitively declining anti-Christ.

It looks like we’re on our own. Read more …

Top Five (or so) Books I’ve Read in the Year of COVID-19

Johann Wilhelm Preyer, Still Life with Champagne, 1885.

960 words

Well, 2020 is one heck of a year. It’s certainly been the most unusual one I’ve lived through. I’ve thrived this year. It boils down to better use of time. I am fortunate that my day job has gone to teleworking status. As a result, the morning commute is from the bedroom to my makeshift household office. I don’t need to spend a penny on gas or a second on the road. Additionally, now that I’m home, instead of the endless office drama and trivia, I focus more on work. Read more …

A Counter-Currents Writer Attends a Black Lives Matter Demonstration

Protest sign at a Black Lives Matter demonstration1,518 words

Oh, cruel irony of fate! I attended a Black Lives Matter demonstration just as the nation started to move into the holiday slumber. How did I get to such a point, you ask? I was visiting with family and one of the young ladies in my extended brood — driver’s permit age — had planned a demonstration near the town’s main thoroughfare.

The young lady’s mom and other relations deftly stepped away from any involvement in the affair, Read more …

Northern Ireland is unique. The Wars of Religion that made seventeenth-century Europe a blood-soaked hellscape never ended there.

The Challenger Disaster:
Lessons for the Right

2,289 words

Anyone who remembers the 1980s can recall exactly what they were doing when the space shuttle Challenger exploded just 73 seconds after lifting off on January 28, 1986. People at the Florida launch site openly wept, pounded their fists on the hoods of their cars, and held each other. Schoolchildren looked at the televised images of the disaster with horror. The news media went into a frenzy, and President Reagan delivered a televised eulogy that evening that was probably his best speech ever. Read more …
