The Afghanistan War Has Been a Tissue of Lies

“In our country the lie has become not just a moral category but a pillar of the State.”.Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn This week, the venerable Washington Post newspaper revealed a bombshell, 2,000 page, secret Pentagon report detailing the astounding failure of US war strategy in Afghanistan, America’s longest war. Americans have been fed a steady stream of lies about the Afghan War, concluded the Post.  So asserted this writer in...

Putting the Christ Back in Christmas

President Donald Trump added a radical twist to the annual National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony last Friday by invoking the divinity of Jesus Christ. You would think revering the season’s central figure would be expected, but you’d be wrong. Although his predecessor, Barack Obama, mentioned the Nativity in general terms as “the story of a child born far from home … who’d ultimately spread a message that has endured for...

Missing the Big Picture

The spiritual revolution of the Axial Age had occurred against a backcloth of turmoil, migration and conquest. …Karl Jaspers suggested, “The Axial Age can be called an interregnum between two ages of great empire, a pause for liberty, a deep breath bringing the most lucid consciousness.” The Great Transformation: The Beginning of Our Religious Traditions, by Karen Armstrong Armstrong closes her book with a look at the way...

Two for One Holiday Special

After the most recent election, the state’s House and Senate are both Democrat majorities and they haven’t wasted a moment in attempting to gut the gun laws in what has historically been a permissive state. What are these new gun laws? The so-called “assault weapon ban” is SB16 and has that perilously vague wording we all know to be incredibly dangerous. In some...

Netanyahu-Pompeo Meeting Solidifies War Plan Against Iran

Ratcheting economic sanctions, military force encirclement, inciting seditious violence and relentless war rhetoric. This all by the US and its allies over the past year towards Iran, yet it is Iran which is portrayed as posing “potential threats” to American interests.

The Impeachment Deal

Two weeks ago we analyzed the consequences of an impeachment process of President Donald Trump. We found that the Democrats would lose by impeaching him and would therefore likely censure him instead. We were wrong. A week later Pelosi announced that she would  proceed with impeachment. It was only today that I understood where I was wrong and what had since happened. Let me walk you through it. The earlier conclusion was...
