Fidei defensor

Where have I seen that hairdo before?
As a young man traveling abroad I once found myself living in the home of an elderly Catholic woman of modest means in the suburbs of London. Her grandson was a curious young lad and loved to hear stories about life in the United States and one day, almost as an aside to the topic at hand, he asked my religion. I told him I was Episcopalian - "It's sort of like being an Anglican," I explained. Looking at me sternly he questioned, "Don't you have a fear of going to Hell?" Family members shushed the boy but he persisted because, liking me as he did, he really was quite concerned for my soul and I appreciated his heartfelt charity. I explained to him that living in the USA is quite different than living in England and while we acknowledge and sometimes make fun of each others religious differences there was very little history of State sanctioned persecution of a religious sect or denomination. We all get along, Catholic, Protestant, Jew, Muslim, Socialist - all the major religions are treated equally under the law and the real misfit religions are given elevated status to protect them from persecution. That's just the way we role in the USA - or at least it was, but perhaps the game board is getting a new set of rules.

Today the brilliant Robert P George penned an open letter addressed to his fellow true believers and asked for their sectarian support (and the support of other men of "good will") to band together and defend the Republican party. Why? Because the Republican party defends protection for unborn children, religious freedom, traditional marriage and limited government. Never mind that it does a lousy job of defending those things - it's the thought that counts. Even though it has consistently lost ground on these "Catholic" issues over the past 30 years now is the time to band together for one urgent reason.

There is a heretic loose in the land who's chief concern is wage stagnation, grossly incompetent governance, profligate governmental spending, the breakdown of immigration law, inept foreign policy, stifling “political correctness” and he must be stopped. Call them Protestant issues that insult the divine will of the New Rome and its chroniclers. But as the voting results were tallied from Americas erect penis last night it became obvious that the defenders of the faith need a more impactful message to keep their flock in atonement with God, country and party.

And as bad as it is for a Protestant heretic to win it could actually be even worse if you're a Catholic Democrat.

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

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

@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
