Part Three. The Nihilist Logic of Death Column Victor Davis Hanson Once the sick dogs of war are unleashed, legalized murder has a Satanic logic of its own. In the US case, the agenda from December 8 onward was how to end the war as quickly as possible that it did not start and had […]

Laudator Temporis Acti

COLUMN By Victor Davis Hanson History is not the melodrama of faceless collectives, but a tragedy of complexities.  We should not go quietly into the night and allow a current affluent, leisured and pampered generation to hijack the past, and damn it to perdition.

Biden’s Disbanding of 1776 Commission Shows Left’s War on US History

  Mike Gonzalez / @Gundisalvus  All Americans should wish President Joe Biden well. To do otherwise would be churlish and self-defeating.

We are being promised Slavery

We are being promised Slavery

    By Don Jans We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are CREATED equal are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable rights, among them the right to LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.” We have a political movement in the United States that profoundly differs with the above statement.
