My Irish-American blood recoils whenever I hear the word “Fredericksburg.” So many young Irishmen were sent to a needless early death because of the slaughter that occurred in that Virginia city 53 miles south of Washington, D. C., during the American Civil War in December 1862. The forces of Robert E. Lee grabbed the high ground at Fredericksburg and waited. By the time the Union forces got there, the best […]

[Photo by Jerry Newcombe of Churchill (U.S. Capitol), who is quoted in this piece] The recent Kavanaugh kerfuffle underscores an important lesson for all of us: Your integrity is your most important asset. Period. What else does anyone have, ultimately? Meanwhile, there are trolls amongst us who don’t care about truth and other people’s reputations. Writing for thecollegefix.com (10/5/18), Daniel Payne notes, “A website allegedly run by University of Washington […]

September 27, 2018 was a low point in our country. In the morning Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified that, when she was in high school in the early 1980s, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh attempted to rape her, and that he and his drunk friend were joking about it. All of this Judge Kavanaugh vehemently denies, and there has been no corroboration for her story. Now an FBI investigation has […]

Diane Feinstein sat on the letter accusing Kavanaugh through the summer and only recently revealed its contents at the last minute. When Kavanaugh heard of the charge, that he allegedly tried to rape a girl, he stated: “I categorically and unequivocally deny this […]

[Photo by Jerry Newcombe of the Museum of the Bible in D.C. of Bibles-burned] At the Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC, they have a display of many burned Bibles. This is the book that, down through the centuries, has been burned more than any other. Ironically, that even happened sometimes at the hand of church officials. Now there are reports out of China of Bibles being burned. Writing […]

Many in our society seem to do everything they can to squelch Christianity, as the following examples illustrate: A retired Lutheran minister might get expelled from his retirement home. Why? For having Bible studies there. A chaplain was facing punishment for not facilitating a lesbian couple’s “marriage” retreat, because it violates his conscience. A Christian baker fought all the way up to the Supreme Court to defend against being forced […]

[Photo by Jerry Newcombe of an ironic ad by Facebook against “fake news.” This was spotted in DC.] The New York Times’ slogan is famously, “All the news that’s fit to print.” I guess Facebook’s slogan should be, “All the liberal news that’s fit to print.” And not just Facebook, but Google, YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo, and Apple. Look at this variety of recent examples where social media giants are allegedly censoring […]

When you see Bernie Sanders, remember Venezuela. When you see Elizabeth Warren, think Caracas. When you see Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, think of the plight of those poor people fleeing Venezuela by the hundreds of thousands—just so they can eat. That may seem a little harsh. But the fact is that Venezuela went from one of the most prosperous countries south of the border, to being a complete basket-case because of socialistic […]
