Among Our Threats

by Mike Pyatt

Expanding on my earlier Facebook post last week “Indulge Me Please” there’s more to say. The main thrust of that post was that within the last month in the U.S., we’ve graduated more than three million students from high schools and colleges, including those who’ve endured the rigors of professional studies in dentistry, engineering, law and medicine, according to the National Center for Education, 2018 statistics. How can one estimate, not their productivity or contribution, but their support of our Republic’s founding documents, and first principles, that make our country the envy of the world? For the sake of making a case, let’s assume half of those graduates, that’s wildly generous, understand and support this remarkable experiment, and have a whit of understanding of the value and myriad benefits of our roots in Western Civilization; and believe socialism’s inimical to all that make America exceptional in this world; and agree that the Eternal God of the Old and New Testament had His hand on us since our beginnings. It begs the question, “What about the other half?” read more

Dodging Imminent Corruption

by Mike Pyatt

The American population has been pushed into thinking about the 2020 election prematurely by the crowded Left leaning anfractuous Democrat field. The 2016 post election narrative that Trump stole the election persists to this day in congressional halls and by the 24/7 mainstream media peddlers. Hillary’s still the victim. President Trump has drastically changed the economic and political landscape for overall good. The extent and the rapidity of unfolding events has been the great surprise to even the “never trump” stalwarts. That over-hyped forecast of an American nightmare, only in the cranial recesses of the Democrats, never materialized. read more

Senator Braveheart

By Dan Brophy

Wyoming: the least populated state, where cattle and pronghorn outnumber people. Where two bigoted cowboys murdered Matthew Shepard in 1998 because they hated homosexuals. Except that Shepard, involved in the meth trade, was murdered by his bisexual lover and another man (hardly cowboys) who were part of the local drug culture. The media proliferated its lie so effectively that Shepard is still portrayed as a martyr. His remains are now interred in the National Cathedral in Washington. The lie persists. read more

Such A Time As This

While the growing field of 2020 Democrats line up to attempt to unseat President Trump, GOP conservatives salivate at the prospects of watching Democrat fisticuffs until the convention in Milwaukee. Navigating this political minefield, trying to maintain political equilibrium, one must grasp the gravity of this unveiling political theatre. Recall the 2004 dust-up between Democratic hopefuls Senator John Kerry, and Senator Richard Gephardt, that eventually gave Kerry an early nod in the New Hampshire primary? Gephardt faded like a vapor. Kerry’s choice of youthful John Edwards, to take the South, ultimately backfired-Bush prevailed.This field’s like no other. read more

Scared Stiff?

Some may recall the failed “Scared Straight” initiative, a 1978, 52 minute documentary narrated by Peter Falk, with a group of juvenile delinquents in a three hour session with hardened convicts, at New Jersey’s Rahway State Prison. It was an attempt, albeit unfruitful, to terrify young offenders, to “scare them straight” so those teenagers will avoid prison life. It was punctuated with raw language to add a sense of prison language to further shock the kids. Longitudinal studies concluded that such programs where not efficacious at deterring crime. It was about as effective as graphic photos of lungs blackened from nicotine in jars to deter smoking. Many studies indicate, whether it’s smoking or crime, “parents are the single strongest influence on their teen’s choice to smoke, drink, use other drugs, or refrain from dilatory behavior.” Who’s scared? read more
