History, Maturity and Secession

The Craziness Continues

 By Harry M. Covert

Three items are on today’s agenda. As has been mentioned so many times in these parts, memorials of Confederate personages continue to be written out of history, as if the antebellum and reconstruction periods never occurred.

Number two involves what some grownups and adults refer to as the immature kiddies who call themselves students at Frederick’s Hood College. Internet code is LMAO.

Number three, from the Left Coast, a federal judge has temporarily ruled Mr. Trump’s government can’t deny money to those states and cities in the Pacific area who hide lawbreakers of the highest order behind the miasma of sanctuaries.… Read More

CHAOS BECOMING THE LANDSCAPE

The Road to Bigger and More Catastrophic Things

By Harry M. Covert

Let’s talk about chaos. No, not the James Bond movie but the mobocracy, or bedlam, or pandemonium, or unruliness underway throughout the land. Add to these ill-manners, no etiquette and plain and simple indiscriminate crime.

The above is a mouthful. Who can deny chaos and meanness have become confused? It’s on purpose, too.

The tragedies resulting from indiscriminate talk, street violence, the widespread murders and shootings are now at extreme proportions. It’s the landscape.

Admittedly, humanoids have a tendency to talk and talk. When applause and attention grow, orations are louder and louder. The point here is that troubles arise when promises become loud and louder but become wearying.

Could this be more evident than the national harangue over the rewritten immigration rules flailing around from the most powerful office in the world?

President Trump initiated a ban on refugees shortly after his enthroning (amid pomp and circumstance). Immediately, opponents seized on objections. It remains a lightning rod. Federal judges rebuked the rookie president.… Read More

WHEN MUCKRAKERS WERE IN …

Time Marches On, The Joy of Legendary Columnists

By Harry M. Covert

Like political aficionados all around these days, naïveté among the masses is rather overwhelming. To begin with, frequent world travelers know all this alleged hysteria about Russian interference doesn’t amount to a hill of beans.

Most certainly old time newspaper muckrakers like Drew Pearson, Jack Anderson, Walter Winchell, and a few others, kept readers on the edges of their seats. My gosh, it was thrilling to get the real political inside news in black and white.

I’m not including other columnists and writers akin to James Reston, Eric Severeid, Arthur Krock, Jack Germond,

La La Land is no Longer a Movie

Mr. O’s Left-Over Chutzpah Legacy, Media War

‘There is only one reason to believe something and that’s because it is true.’
— C.S. Lewis

By Ladson F. Mills III

A nation that no longer requires accountability from its leaders is in grave peril. With all the attention directed toward President Donald Trump it is easy to overlook the disaster of his predecessor Barrack Obama.

The world is a more dangerous place than before Mr. Obama took office. America is neither feared by enemies nor
