Ukraine:  Our response to the Russian invasion is incoherent and confused, but the bravery of the Ukrainian people themselves could be the deciding factor

Europe hasn’t seen a war like this in over 80 years, but so far the response from the United States and the rest of the world has lacked any coherent strategy as we impose sanctions for the sake of sanctions and search for a “free lunch” approach that both maximizes and minimizes economic pain.  In… Continue reading Ukraine:  Our response to the Russian invasion is incoherent and confused, but the bravery of the Ukrainian people themselves could be the deciding factor

A Work of Art (Indy Horror Short)

Check out our recent independent horror short available on YouTube.  A Work of Art is a surreal, experimental ghost story about haunted men and their hard-partying alter egos that qualified as a Finalist in the 2021 version of the 100 Hour Film Race contest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIWO9ktQdak A Work of Art is a surreal, experimental ghost story… Continue reading A Work of Art (Indy Horror Short)

From “hide the decline” to hide the coronavirus data

The scientific establishment positions itself as an objective authority that demands our trust, but their actions over the course of the past two decades certainly don’t suggest they are worthy of it.  From an old scandal in climate science to a new one concerning the pandemic, they hide the data that doesn’t support their conclusions… Continue reading From “hide the decline” to hide the coronavirus data

Ukraine reveals the sad impotency of the international establishment

The establishment is obsessed with meaningless words and “constructive dialogue,” but all Vladimir Putin cares about is power.  We’ve wasted decades talking about containing Russian aggression while increasing Russian power by granting them access to European energy markets.  Words will not change this dynamic, only the application of power in the form of US energy… Continue reading Ukraine reveals the sad impotency of the international establishment

Shakespeare’s Henry V and the timeless politics of power

King Henry V is a nationalist hero to the English, a villain to the French, and likely something in between to modern audiences.  Part heroic warrior, part self-serving, calculating politician, Henry’s rise prompts timeless questions about the nature of power in general. Shakespeare’s Henry V is a subtly yet at times disturbingly contradictory character, a… Continue reading Shakespeare’s Henry V and the timeless politics of power

Parents across the country are on the march, fighting pandemic restrictions and CRT even in liberal enclaves like San Francisco

Three School Board Members were ousted by huge margins in a never before seen recall for keeping schools closed while pursuing woke policies.  We can expect more of the same across the country if progressives continue to insist radical ideology belongs in the classroom, but parents do not, pushing the narrative that America is irredeemably… Continue reading Parents across the country are on the march, fighting pandemic restrictions and CRT even in liberal enclaves like San Francisco

BOOK EXCERPT: Yet another few pages from my forthcoming fantasy novel, “The Law of the Primes: The Boy King,” part one of a planned world-spanning trilogy

“The sergeant, Taz, didn’t have many meaningful thoughts throughout his prolonged captivity, nothing of consequence in his entire mind until he found himself at the very uncomfortable center of attention in an underground city straight out of some half-forgotten myth.  Before then, he’d been taken from the site of the attack on the skiffs, forcibly… Continue reading BOOK EXCERPT: Yet another few pages from my forthcoming fantasy novel, “The Law of the Primes: The Boy King,” part one of a planned world-spanning trilogy

Russian Collusion: The Durham investigation continues apace and the media continues to deny the reality of Hillary Clinton’s role

Last week, the Special Counsel released another round of indictments which the media dutifully ignored and then promptly pretended didn’t mean anything, but one thing is clear:  The Clinton campaign was behind the hoax the entire time, funneling false reports to an incredibly naïve and corrupt FBI and the media including the original Steele Dossier,… Continue reading Russian Collusion: The Durham investigation continues apace and the media continues to deny the reality of Hillary Clinton’s role

Ukraine: Why are we hyping up an invasion we can do nothing about?

President Teddy Roosevelt once said, “speak softly and carry a big stick.”  This is the exact opposite:  We have no stick at all, and yet we’re carrying on as if we had a baseball bat.  So long as Europe is dependent on Russian energy, Russia will do what it wants in Eastern Europe. We should… Continue reading Ukraine: Why are we hyping up an invasion we can do nothing about?

Canadian Truckers: This is the people’s lockdown and the elites can’t stand it

Some of the same government officials in the United States and Canada who shut down businesses and closed borders for years by executive edict, putting tens of thousands out of work, are decrying the negative impact of a peoples’ blockade of the Ambassador Bridge and even threatening their children.   Last week, the Freedom Convoy 2022… Continue reading Canadian Truckers: This is the people’s lockdown and the elites can’t stand it
