MOB VIOLENCE NOW IN VOGUE

The American society is undergoing a stark change in ideas.

I reiterate comments in a previous column, personal hating and animus toward others of any sort is obscene and w-r-o-n-g. That’s not hard to say or think. Honestly I don’t know of any school classroom that teaches or instructs hatred. Maybe there are but not in all of my days have I found such academic foolishness.

The Charlottesville rioting has been all the rage as it should be. Tragic and for no reason with the exception of ignorance and hostility. No genius is required to know what happened in Thomas Jefferson’s town.

THE GUISE of PEACEABLE ASSEMBLY


The Unbelievable Car Killing, Injuries

It was unbelievable to see the fighting explode with fisticuffs, tear gas, then become more horrible when a 20 year old Ohio man drove his car into the downtown crowd killing an innocent local paralegal and injuring 39 others.

By Harry M. Covert

There are plenty of words in the English language to express and condemn the odious events of the past weekend in Charlottesville. All are appropriate for the unpeaceable assembly where haters had their day.

The ghastly would-be protestors placed scars that will be difficult to erase for years to come. People of good will have their work cut out for them.… Read More

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.

Ladson F. Mills III, essayist and author.
