UPDATE 12/26/23: Not just American spirit, but that spirit that unites ALL good people. There are no words.
UPDATE 12/27/23: The story of Albert & Mary Lasker and their ongoing medical foundation is a great American story and a stark contrast to the evil, politicized turn establishment medicine & science has taken in recent decades, most shamefully demonstrated by the lionization of self-serving, bloodless frauds like Fauci and his equally hollow counterparts in the Green hoax industry.
UPDATE 12/24/23: Continuity is a blessing lost for many…until a single recovered lost item reconnects some forgotten threads of a family’s history.
UPDATE 12/29/23: It’s cheering to read about what we can expect (and wish for fervently) from a second Trump term.
I’ll have more of the same and then some, thank you.
UPDATE 12/27/23: Ben Carson is being touted as a possible running mate for Trump. Unlike the run-of-the-mill tokens being dropped without merit into high positions, this man is a competent, world-class professional who has fully earned the status he has based on his innate talent and character. His is an inspiring American success story, and there’s an unmistakable decency about him. Whether or not he becomes the candidate and (hopefully) Veep, we can predict he will be a prime target for destruction just as is Clarence Thomas or any renegade from the proscribed, Leftist political script.
The link between Trump & Carson made a lasting impression at the New Hampshire Presidential debate in 2016 when (according to TDS sufferers) the bombastic, egomaniacal, arrogant, selfish, crude, bad-mannered monster Trump showed the simple courtesy of not letting Carson go last onto the debate stage after the clueless hosts forgot to announce him.
UPDATE 12/23/23: Oh, my. How very impolite of him. So mean. But then, we wouldn’t need such a plainspoken leader if extreme circumstances didn’t demand it. Equal, opposite reactions and all that. As we’ve been applauding since 2016, it’s about time.
UPDATE 12/27/23: There is no other way to describe the poison animating mindless chants of anti-Israel slogans among Americans than pure evil. The eye-witness testimony by Mike Huckabee from Israel of the horrors visited upon Israelis on 10/7 brings that home.
UPDATE 12/26/23: The antidote to mass psychosis: keep it real, keep it true, KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid.
MEMORIAL DAY AND D-DAY
UPDATE 12/28/23: The story of Ilion NY is a tale of one small American town’s devastation at the hands of the anti-gun lobby and gouging unions. From another angle, it’s a case of massive corporations buying little companies and gutting them with no thought of the common folk they’re hurting. Whither Norman Rockwell’s and Frank Capra’s America?
UPDATE 12/26/23; The Covid nightmare enveloping us for those grim, barren years remains an awful memory now somewhat dispelled by the healthy light of facts and revealed consequences, not the darkness of fear forced upon us at the time.
MEDICAL HELP FROM
UPDATE 12/28/23: In Trump’s absence and the moral vacuum temporarily replacing him, evil is having a heyday and making big plans. History verifies that the power of deterrence plays no part in soft-headed Democrat administrations which consistently, by no coincidence, have always turned the whole world into a war zone.
UPDATE 12/26/23: If this doesn’t sound scary, what does? “China and Russia are more than just working together. They are forming the core of a new axis. Around this core are proxies and proxies of proxies, such as Iran, North Korea, Algeria, and a host of terrorist groups.” They hate us. They really hate us.
Such pleasant, benign-looking fellows. How bad can they be?
UPDATE 12/26/23: Isn’t it understandable to be a bit wary of machines promising to do all the work involved in thinking and creating for us? Creative destruction, new labor saving devices replacing outmoded ways in service to genuine human progress has always been a good thing but not to the point where the machine totally replaces the human and, like Frankenstein’s monster, destroys its creator.
UPDATE 1/29/23: We have become a banana republic when those in political power can nullify the Constitution and our basic rights and determine whom we vote for. Whether we are to remain permanently reduced to this serfdom is dependent upon the results of Election, 2024.
UPDATE 12/28/23: The great Greenie romance with the EV should now be termed “love on the rocks” as the dangerous, ridiculously expensive, useless pieces of Green propaganda are piling up like so much unwanted junk in car lots across the fruited plain.
Green monster, environmental tyranny in full practice.
UPDATE 12/30/23: The essence of Obama’s legacy is the permanent wedge of race/gender/class/climate hysteria driven between all people, guaranteeing all-out social chaos on multiple fronts remedied by rigid, centralized control. A central tenet of the so-called “anti-racist” part of this civil war is that successful (ie, capitalist) Whites are the ultimate bad guys, and that has expanded to include those historically reliable scapegoats, the Jews, Israel specifically, the oppressor of those “colored” people called “Palestinians.” By this mad, demonic logic, a climate fanatic like Greta Thunberg finds herself marching in solidarity with economic Marxists against the White capitalist patriarchy (including Israel and all those rich Jews) who oppress the colored, the poor and the sexually deviant. Pick your spot! EVERYONE a victim or an oppressor!
UPDATE 12/26/23: Judging by the unfolding case of one token Black hire named Claudine Gay, it would seem that skin color and political affiliation are less than ideal qualifications by which one picks the best person for a job. Not that it matters to people like her nearby fellow “Elected Of Color” Boston Mayor Wu who are proudly making racial segregation and strife cool again.
Back to the good old days. Note date.
UPDATE 12/28/23: It’s a head scratching moment when a prominent BLM figure comes out four-square for Trump as the candidate who speaks best for Blacks and refers accurately to the half century of Inner City Democrat control as a “plantation” from which to escape. Happily, such second thoughts are not restricted to Blacks but to a whole host of newly born ex-Democrats coming to their senses about who their friends are…and aren’t.
UPDATE 12/30/23: Iran: the savage terrorist regime and death cult to which the Democrats are paying billions for fossil fuel energy and palettes of cash in extortion bribes. Oooo, that was good, master! Do it again!
UPDATE 12/24/23: In an imagined time lapse video sequence, one can visualize thousands of those “Hate Has No Home Here” signs slowly, then ever more rapidly being snatched off lawns and out of windows in all those big-hearted, affluent neighborhoods when the illegals start begging door to door as they now are in NYC.
UPDATE 12/30/23: Real Man Of The Year: the IDF fighter putting it all on the line for Israel and the entire free, civilized world.
UPDATE 12/28/23: For the benefit of those of us still inexplicably outraged by 10/7, the New York Times attempts to jog our cold consciences for all those dead Gazans and waxes compassionate on behalf of Hamas by running an Op-Ed by…oh… a Hamas official. As journalist Robert Spencer darkly notes, “Hitler wasn’t available.”
UPDATE 12/26/23: Bibi’s modest “to-do” list in pursuit of real peace: wipe out Hamas, demilitarize Gaza and deprogram the millions of Arab fanatics brainwashed from childhood to lust for Israeli blood.
UPDATE 12/28/23: The Big Question: will the BIG LIE, the Leftist agenda/narrative made up of now-countless Big Lies, prevail or will truth and goodness win out?
UPDATE 12/29/23: Hunter’s laptop may ultimately provide permanent relief from the Bidens, but it doesn’t relieve us of the people in power who foisted them upon us. Alas.
UPDATE 12/30/23: Not viewed as “The Thing That Wouldn’t Leave” for nothing, Hillary has generously made herself available in full view these days to “help” a faltering Joe. In reality, she lies hungrily in wait nearby for the top spot when he is forced to vacate center stage.
Keep your enemies close.
UPDATE 12/30/23: Barack Obama, Man Of The Year. After all, there are ways in which he is unrivalled in the mark he has made on our society. Honest, accurate history will certainly verify that, and God will make the final judgment.
