On March 15, five Judges of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal delivered what Professor Jonathon Turley termed a “vociferous dissent” which has received, as he noted, “a surprising lack of media attention…”. Upon discovering Prof. Turley’s article, and a couple of others in the same vein, I conducted my own search and while not claiming […]

True Story: A Neighbor Saw My New “Make America Great Again” Flag–And Cried

 

This little story definitely falls under the heading of “you can’t make this stuff up!”

I am very proud of my flagpole in my front yard and have proudly flown “Old Glory” for many years. I try hard to keep it replaced when our frequent South Louisiana storms “have their way with” them and I try hard to observe all the rules with regard to the proper care of the American flag.

The perpetually angry Congressperson Maxine Waters has pronounced the entire Cabinet of the United States of America “a bunch of scumbags” and has aimed her rancid, despicable, (dare I say it?) deplorable — in the truest sense of the word– grotesqueness in particular at Secretary of State Rex Tillerson because he’s a part of the […]

This is the conclusion of an excellent editorial just published by National Review Online, entitled “The Ninth Circuit’s Power Grab”, which should be read by anyone who wants a fuller understanding of why this ruling is so unmoored from all basic principles thought to give the President plenary authority to control alien entry into the […]

  My legal training and education, and many decades of practicing trial law, finally led me to approach the hysterical chorus of claims that the President’s recent Executive Order was a “Muslim ban” in what really does appear lately to be “the old-fashioned way”—to read and study Judge Robarts’s opinion, to read and study the […]

I want to record my feelings and observations on this day after the inauguration of our new President, Donald J. Trump, in view of the truly historic nature of this event and the resurgence of good, old fashioned American patriotism it is given rise to! I really feel this is the dawning of a new […]

Heather Mac Donald has just published ,under the above title, an excellent analysis, in which statement I am repeating myself as all of her works are excellent, especially her recent book, The War on Cops, about the horrific societal changes which produced the four individuals who tortured a disabled white man for hours last week […]

A letter to the editor appeared in our paper, The Baton Rouge Advocate, this morning which contained the above words describing all of us “deplorables” down here in South Flyover Country (and from sea to shining sea!)and it just called so loudly for an answer I simply could not resist answering, as it were, “the call […]

So said one of our dearest friends recently in discussing this election season, based on the fact that she and My Lady are “of a certain age” and I am a good decade past them on that dark scale. Because of the level I have acquired on that dreaded counter, I may well have only […]

One of my favorite columnists, John Kass of the Chicago Tribune, has an excellent analysis out this morning entitled, appropriately enough, What Plagues Clinton in the final days: The Chicago Way, in which he sets out a nice, succinct statement of all the ways the Clintons’ thirty years of sleaze is catching up with them […]

Hillary Clinton has finally been called, by one of those rarest of creatures, a Congressman with a very sturdy backbone, what many of us have believed she is and has been for a very, very long time– a traitor to her country, clearly guilty of treason. Here is the brief story on his remarks, which […]

A Fish Called Obama, or The Fish Rots From The Head

 

As one who very publicly proclaimed his belief that James Comey was one of the most honest, incorruptible public servants in Washington, before he permanently stained himself and his agency with the corruption so endemic to that swamp of mendacity in these times, I feel uniquely qualified to comment on the serious damage his decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton has done to our Nation. And, as one who really believed in his integrity and probity, I can certainly agree with his own words in describing himself in a Senate Committee hearing — “a deeply flawed and fallible human being.” That deficiency, obviously not peculiar to Mr. Comey, is one which addresses itself to Mr. Comey and those he has dragged with him into such disrepute. However, as with so much of the lawlessness which will forever be the real legacy of this most corrupt administration in our history, the damage to the Rule of Law — the very foundation of our Republic, as designed by the Founding Fathers — carries the potential of being dangerous and far-reaching. Should, God forbid, Hillary Clinton be elected President, it could well become permanent.

In a post recently @ observed the following, in a piece appropriately entitled “James Comey Is A Disgrace”:

This is the day we celebrate the greatest Constitution ever written by some of the most brilliant men who ever lived to govern what has become the Greatest Nation in the history of the world. It is especially important after so many years of governance by some of the most corrupt and dishonestly dangerous people […]

How sad is it that on a day when we are supposed to be honoring the memory of those slaughtered by Islamic terrorists, we have spent the entire day talking about whether Hillary Clinton had this malady or that malady? What has happened to us? Does anyone not see the horrible imbalance in all of […]

We now have, in addition to the multitude of violations of public trust outlined by the Director of the FBI right before he permanently soiled himself and his reputation for integrity and that of his agency by letting this criminal skate for Federal offenses from which no one not named Clinton would have escaped prosecution, […]

Like  all of our Baton Rouge friends, we are deeply stricken with grief and anger and hurt at this despicable and insane slaughter of officers of the Baton Rouge Police Department and, while I have been the first to express strong disagreement with those who leap to conclusions without having even a scintilla of evidence […]

In the terrible shock and dismay in the wake of the FBI Director’s statement of this morning that there will be no recommendation of an indictment of Hillary Rodham Clinton, after listing every single element necessary for a conviction under 18 USCA 793(f), I decided to really show my age and actually check with the […]

I am naïve. I actually believe there are men and women of honor in public service and that one or more of them will come forward to name –in public-Hillary Rodham Clinton what she really is, a person whose dishonesty, venality and corruption has now reached the level of illegality at which an indictment for […]

Various dictionaries set forth similar definitions of this word and they generally follow these lines: “having the qualities of surrealism; bizarre.”a surreal mix of fact and fantasy” Synonyms: unreal, bizarre, unusual, weird, strange, freakish, unearthly, uncanny, dreamlike, phantasmagorical”a backdrop of surreal images”.
