Biden’s celebration of inflation was woefully premature and dramatically out of touch

While the White House was celebrating passage of the Inflation Reduction Act complete with a musical guest, inflation itself continued to ravage the economy and the Dow plunged 1,200 points.  Out of touch barely begins to describe the handling of the looming stagflationary spiral.  The experts missed it 40 years ago and they are missing… Continue reading Biden’s celebration of inflation was woefully premature and dramatically out of touch

Defund the Department of Justice?

Another round of illegal leaks concerning yet another investigation into former President Donald Trump.  Another round of speculation in the media that the walls are closing in, and all the while Attorney General Merrick Garland and his boss, President Joe Biden, continue hiding behind the idea that they can’t comment on ongoing investigations, only leak… Continue reading Defund the Department of Justice?

The Rings of Power: The good, the bad, and the Spielberg

Beyond the accusations of woke casting or challenges modernizing Christian morality, the problem has always been that no one alive can write on the level required to realize Tolkien’s vision.  Tolkien was a master of his craft and a singular genius, one of the greatest writers who ever lived and widely considered the greatest of… Continue reading The Rings of Power: The good, the bad, and the Spielberg

Queen Elizabeth II was irreplaceable and the monarchy might not make it long without her

Elizabeth II was a bridge between the past and the future.  She wasn’t Churchill’s Queen, or Margaret Thatcher’s Queen, or Tony Blair’s Queen, though she presided over them all.  She was a Queen for all her people and all Great Britain, working hand in hand with political legends without being a political activist.  Her heir,… Continue reading Queen Elizabeth II was irreplaceable and the monarchy might not make it long without her

FBI raid:  Special masters are made for special circumstances

The Department of Justice created this mess by seizing close to a hundred times more material than they needed including personal items and privileged information they had no right to even look at, much less take.  What are we supposed to do from here, let the same people who have breached every democratic norm imaginable… Continue reading FBI raid:  Special masters are made for special circumstances

Transgender theory and transubstantiation

Trans-activists would have us believe that one thing can change into another simply by force of will, but what else in the world works that way save for the Catholic belief that the wine and wafer become the body and blood of Christ except for the accidents of taste, color, and form? Humor me with… Continue reading Transgender theory and transubstantiation

Hamlet, The Northman, and Shakespeare’s genius through the looking glass

Robert Egger’s The Northman is based on the same source material as Shakespeare’s Hamlet, a Viking legend circa 1,000 AD, but takes a completely different path, crafting an almost anti-Hamlet.  This “Shakespherean” mode of adaptation presents unique opportunity to return to Shakespeare’s original roots and illuminate both works. Despite attempts to cancel the world’s greatest… Continue reading Hamlet, The Northman, and Shakespeare’s genius through the looking glass

Biden fancies himself John Quincy Adams, thinks he can save America

The President delivered a primetime speech about the “continued battle for the soul of the nation,” but who is he to declare close to half the country his enemies?  What moral quality and compass does this man have to define democracy itself, proclaim himself everyone else’s better, and demand we conform to his view of… Continue reading Biden fancies himself John Quincy Adams, thinks he can save America

Early humans walked the earth millions of years earlier than we believed and your teeth might be the scales of a fish

A new analysis continues to confirm Charles Darwin’s hypothesis that the first step towards humanity was walking upright, and his thoughts on the matter in Descent of Man still ring true over 150 years later, an incredible feat.  Meanwhile, other scientists are finally beginning to solve the riddle of where teeth came from.  It’s Darwin’s… Continue reading Early humans walked the earth millions of years earlier than we believed and your teeth might be the scales of a fish
