The Monastery of the Mind and ‘The New Patriotism’

Conservative scholar Victor Davis Hanson introduced the metaphor of 'the monastery of the mind' in his column for National Review — a self-imposed exile by the average American from the brutality of postmodern politics 'into mental mountaintops'. Here is where 'dreams of the past and fantasies of the future' can alone be conceived and imagined, unscathed … Continue reading The Monastery of the Mind and ‘The New Patriotism’


The Civil Rights Movement is Now An Abject Failure. Will Slavery Reparations or #Blaxit Come Next?

On January 20, 2017, Donald Trump’s patented orange skin, comb over and small hands replaced Hitler’s mustache. And if you believe in CNN, then of course it must be true. But what is true is the current president’s utter dismemberment of the Obama legacy of governance without legislative oversight. Once, some three years ago, Obama’s second press secretary Josh Earnest alluded to the fact Obama considered unilaterally increasing taxation through unconstitutional executive fiat. Combine these rumors with his degree to construct Housing and Urban Development projects in high-end and middle class neighborhoods, and the writing is not only on the wall, but some day when the Democrats control the White House and Congress, the final brick will have been laid for Apartheid. The lone questions, then, are how our government reconciles slavery reparations with growing demands for a black exodus to their ancestral lands in Africa (perhaps it shall be called #Blaxit), given the other demographics, most prominently the Asian community, are finding action, not good intentions, is the only option now. What a Catch-22. Jim Crow is now the star of a minstrel show as the devil in a blue dress.

#MeToo Leftists Have Voted for Generations to Complete America’s Transformation Into a #ShitHole

People naturally love liars and passionately hate the insensitive rubes who tell the truth because the truth would set them free (John 8:31-34), and living the pleasurable lie is worth eternal enslavement to experience the euphoria of instant gratification. The liar, like the alchemists of old, is an evil genius dishing out 'fool's gold' to compensate for his clientele's inequities in exchange for participating in 'the big lie'. And politicians who immediately pledge to 'never lie' (Jimmy Carter, anyone?) are the most beloved of all liars because, like any artful salesman, their lone goal is to sell lemons to prospective customers by mortgaging their reputation — the consequences be damned. Whether they are crooked used car salesmen or politicians, or lifelong businessmen like Donald Trump with his pyramid scheme operation through Trump University, they all learned to play the consumer culture like hearts from Hell, to mimic the Devil's impeccable mastery of intrigues. The most egregious politicians promise a free lunch, yet never disclose just where that mystery meat was purchased nor who actually paid for it. Therefore, it is only natural that most people love liars to the point of idolatry—  purchasing their posters, watching their films, reading 'self-help' books or accepting Oprah's truth as the new Gospel — because people unerringly elect the wolf in sheep's clothing while spurning the hated but reliable Shepherd tending his flock. Gullibility, marinated in the stew of greed, jealousy and dissolution, drive these blithe little sheep blinded by indignation to consume what the wolf in sheep's clothing rationed until one day the wolf, himself facing starvation as the supply in storage dwindled, devours the last of the flock after revealing he not only had never been part of the flock, but had fed them the mutton of a neighbor whose fleece, white as snow, he now wears.

The Axis of Evil Wears the Emperor’s New Clothes

Late conservative foreign policy scholar Samuel P. Huntington accurately forecasted the post-Cold War world to be the most perilous in human history for the very reasons Margaret Thatcher observed regarding the West's general obsession with a 'peace dividend' in the name of political correctness, which rejects the idea that "the only real peace dividend is peace."  Thatcher's … Continue reading The Axis of Evil Wears the Emperor’s New Clothes

From Washington and Brussels to the Three Seas, A New Iron Curtain Divides the West Over the Migrant Crisis and Jerusalem

After his first year in the White House, President Trump has ruffled more feathers in the international community than all other presidents combined during the postwar period. His audacity to demand that member states in NATO all pitch in their two percent of GDP recommended for proper upkeep has enraged most notably Angela Merkel, who … Continue reading From Washington and Brussels to the Three Seas, A New Iron Curtain Divides the West Over the Migrant Crisis and Jerusalem

Sphere Sovereignty in the Postmodern World

Postmodernism is difficult to define because, according to its adherents' worldview, to define it is to assume no definitive terms, boundaries nor absolute truths, exist. For instance, some question whether nationalism, politics, religion and warfare are byproducts of the primordial human mentality; if truth in itself is only an illusion; whether Christianity can claim primacy or … Continue reading Sphere Sovereignty in the Postmodern World

For the Conservative Movement and America’s Survival, the Trump Card Must Pave the New Path to Ted Cruz

In August 2015, I published an article that, in hindsight, has proven all the more relevant only 48 hours after George W. Bush — a staunch globalist political firebrand — declared his tacit political divorce from his own party's electoral base by vaguely attacking "bigoted" Donald Trump and the "nativist" conservative movement he alienated after announcing … Continue reading For the Conservative Movement and America’s Survival, the Trump Card Must Pave the New Path to Ted Cruz
