CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST EXAMINES ‘UNHINGED’

‘Malfeasance of the Left and the Swamp’

By Bruce Atkinson, Phd.

Did anyone realize the onslaught that a Democratic loss would bring? Did anyone predict just how juvenile and inane the Democratic base would be? Did anyone understand the petulance and nastiness Democratic officials would display? Did anyone predict how hyperbolic and crazy the leftist media would become?

It is disconcerting how many have become so unhinged over the past years. Even so, it’s not possible to have guessed just how extreme and hyperbolic the left would become. Championing “resistance” as if they were in a revolutionary cadre in a South American country was not expected.… Read More

THE KILLING OF DONALD TRUMP

America’s elite class will never understand . . .

‘If you want to tell people the truth make them laugh, otherwise they’ll kill you.’

George Bernard Shaw

By Ladson F. Mills III

There is no need to offer advice. As the saying goes the wise don’t need it and the unwise won’t heed it. But if anyone from the White House happens to be reading here’s a thought. Perhaps a more playful attitude toward your antagonist is timely. You are confronted by the humorless and the humorless are deadly.

There was a time when there was admiration for those who took their jobs but not themselves seriously.… Read More

Stephen Colbert’s Self-Delusional Reality

Shattered Dreams of Back Row Americans

‘Fame is vapor, popularity an accident, riches take wing, and only character endures.’
— Horace Greeley

By Ladson F. Mills III

Donald Trump has succeeded where many others before him have failed. His election exposed what does not lie beneath the surface of the majority of America’s celebrity class. Their continued adolescent tantrums might be considered humorous if it were no so tiresome.

It has been observed that the current political unrest is not dissimilar to those of the sixties. This may be true, but the music back then was ever so much better.… Read More

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.

The tragic Easter weekend murders around the nation have added to the growing chaos.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,

Walter Winchell (right) and J.

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

AMERICA UNDER SIEGE

America Under Siege: The conspiracy to remove President Trump

‘We’re not going to live under that man for four years’  -- Maxine Waters (Democrat California Congresswoman)

By Ladson F. Mills III

The American Republic is under siege. Bloomberg columnist Eli Lake commenting on Michael Flynn’s departure stated ‘Flynn is only the appetizer. Trump is the entrée.’ It may be much worse than Lake describes.

In asking the question, ‘what did the president know and when did he know it?’, it appears the President in question should be Barrack Obama rather than Donald Trump.

HIERARCHY of PUBLICITY

When Did Child Abuse Become Tolerated?

By LADSON F. MILLS III

‘In the world of celebrity the hierarchy of publicity has replaced the hierarchy of descent and even great wealth.’ (C. Wright Mills, Columbia University Sociologist)

If a rose by any other name would smell as sweet’, child abuse whether sexual, physical or verbal stinks. But being on the accepted side of politics apparently means never having to say you’re sorry. Even when it involves child abuse.

While women marched in protest of Donald Trump and asserted that their anatomy will grab back, NBC’s Saturday Night Live writer Katie Rich achieved a new low.… Read More

POSTER CHILD OUT OF TOUCH

Deplorable versus Delusional


‘Denouncing voters who were tired of politics-as-usual and declaring them to be a basket of deplorables is hardly the way to win them over’. — BREDA O’BRIEN


By Ladson F. Mills III
The great American cultural divide is no longer between race, gender or socio-economics. It is now a divide between deplorables and delusionals.

Actress Meryl Streep’s speech at the recent Golden Globe Awards ensures her status as Poster Child for the delusionals.  Criticizing President-Elect Donald Trump for his immoderate comments against a special needs reporter during his recent campaign, Ms. Streep spoke movingly of how his remarks brought her to tears.… Read More
