no limit to political correctness

You can't purge what happened in the past. We are who we are America.

Sound familiar? Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it…what about those who intentionally erase it?

there’s a difference

We owe a debt of gratitude to the journalists and reporters whose work is to make sure the truth is exposed and the public knows the facts. Too many have too much to hide. It’s the dedication and commitment to the truth that is the bedrock of our freedom.

lies of a wannabe king

Even George Orwell couldn’t have imagined this amount of doublespeak and overt lying. #BLOTUS is the undisputed “Lord of the Lies.” Bruce Riedel lets us know  once again that our Liar-in-Chief cannot be trusted.

And now  the Cheetos-colored, wannabe king is verbally attacking one of our biggest allies in the Middle East. Is he truly this stupid?

on the road to hell

After just recently rereading 1984, I am struck by the timeliness of this statement by Orwell. All of us have heard the old saw that we have the government we deserve. Orwell states it even more directly.

In a democracy we have the ability to choose. We don’t have, however, the guarantee that we will necessarily choose wisely. None so blind as those that refuse to see. And most of our nation has become so afraid that they refuse to open their eyes. And a people that willingly swallows lies can never be set free by the truth.

We are not only on the road to hell, we are helping pave it as we go.
