Things Going By

If this (first?) summer of Covid-19 has revealed anything about the current version of civilization, it’s the profound exhaustion of a culture reduced to going through the motions of its once-vital activities. A lot of things that we hope will come back are probably gone forever in the form we knew them, though they will eventually return in another configuration, reduced in scale, but perhaps finer in quality. I miss...

Fr. George Zabelka

Why have I, a cradle Catholic, learned more about the Prince of Peace, the evils of war, and the lies of the government from the LRC website than from my own Church? In 2007, LRC published “A Military Chaplain Repents,” an interview that Fr. Emmanuel McCarthy did with Fr. George Zabelka in the late 1970s. Fr. Zabelka served as the Catholic chaplain for the group that dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. No...

A Covid Lockdown Will Result in a Million More Deaths

The narrow focus of the WHO and CDC to halt the spread of COVID-19 coronavirus while ignoring other infectious diseases will predictably result in excess deaths from a more prevalent and deadly lung disease – tuberculosis.  The COVID-19 lockdowns are predicted to result in a million more deaths from tuberculosis than what would normally occur.  The COVID-19 lockdowns need to be halted immediately if this data is to be heeded...

Autopsy of America

For the last several months, the populace of the United States of America has been beaten and bamboozled. Bewildered, if not outright crushed, people are berating each other for failing to wear a face mask in public. Riots have taken over several big cities in the country, and crime is exploding in New York City, Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and others. The country is walking on eggshells. Every new minute threatens to...

Israel Destroys East Beirut With a New Weapon

The weapon, which is not well known, caused considerable damage in the city, killing more than 100 people, injuring 5,000 and destroying many buildings. This time it will be difficult for Benjamin Netanyahu to deny it. The first Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, authorized a strike against a...

The DNC Convention Is the Election

For nearly a year it has been my primary thesis that the DNC nominating convention would determine the fate of the presidential election here in the states. These four days may, in fact, be more dramatic than any Democratic convention since 1860 when incumbent James Buchanan was tossed aside to ensure a lawyer with railroad ties from Illinois, Stephen Douglas, squared off against Republican Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was also...

Bad Medicine: Fauci’s HCQ Waterloo

Dr. Anthony Fauci has been hailed in the press as the nation’s top infectious disease expert.  He’s been feted with presidential honors and high praise for his medical acumen.  His policy disagreements with President Trump, supposedly as the voice of “science,” have made him a hero on the left.  Such laurels and the implied power conveyed have led to some weird side-effects — such as his image featured on ladies’ underwear...

Germany’s Populist Revolt Against the Lockdown

Tens of thousands gathered in Berlin last weekend to proclaim ‘Freedom Day and the end of the pandemic’. The event couldn’t have been more controversial. One side (the vast majority of commentators and politicians) referred to the demo as a ‘dangerous development’. The protesters were labelled as reckless government-haters who posed a risk to other people’s health. The word Covidiots came up again and again (including in a...

People Don’t Understand the Significance of $2,000 Gold

Gold reached a new milestone Tuesday, breaking above $2,000 for the first time ever. The yellow metal closed just above $2,017 an ounce. Peter talked about gold’s new record high and what it’s telling us in his latest podcast. He says most people still don’t really understand the significance of $2,000 gold. Peter noted that when gold first peaked its head above $2,000, it immediately sold off. He said that kind of...
