Palmyra BC/AD

Palmyra Syria (old) and Virginia (new)
Palmyra in Syria is suffering the ravages of barbarous force but Palmyra, VA is just getting started (in a global historical way) so shed no tears for the desecration of the Temple of Baalshamin because it's just the early days of a multi-decade regional war which will see countless ancient artifacts demolished and turned to dust. The new Palmyra is the future and though it might be hideous to the eye it is far removed from ISIS and their twisted theosophy. Sure the old Palmyra is of "Outstanding Universal Value" but its destruction is a legacy of the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy initiative and, too bad, you get what you vote for. Palmyra, VA has (as you can see in the photo above) churches that make an extraordinary architectural statement , institutional schools, international shopping plazas, vending machines that deliver sugar water and filmed entertainment, lots of parking and copious storage facilities for overflow items that might clutter ones home. With a population of just over 100 people the town is primed for growth and the future is brighter than that of their distant cousins in the middle east. Good luck old Palmyra and cheerio from the Old Dominion - we watch the desecration of your monuments and artifacts with a heavy heart and wish there were still fully manned US Army bases in Iraq to help you out, but there are not and no rescue cavalry for another year and a half (at the very least) so hang in there if you can - God willing someone will step in to set things right late January 2017.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
