A Letter From the “Socialist” Democratic Republic of France

A Letter From the “Socialist” Democratic Republic of France

    By Sigrid Weidenweber I try to be assiduously correct in assigning credit to the sources I use. However, I cannot do this in this publication. Both my sources live in areas where they could be subjects to abuse if their political leanings were known. I am speaking of Oregon, USA and Paris, France. […]

Letters From the Land of “Ruthless Capitalism”—Sweden and the Nordic Countries

Letters From the Land of “Ruthless Capitalism”—Sweden and the Nordic Countries

    By Sigrid Weidenweber Sometimes interesting things arrive at my desk in a round-about way. Since I peruse the Wall Street Journal consistently and believe that I miss very little of interest, I was taken aback to receive the following report from my Swedish friend, Helle, residing in Portland, Oregon. It was an interview […]

Erdogan is a Bigger Evil to the Kurds Than Syria’s Al-Assad

Erdogan is a Bigger Evil to the Kurds Than Syria’s Al-Assad

    By Sigrid Weidenweber We all remember Bashar al-Assad’s poison gas attacks on the Kurdish population during President Obama’s governance.  They were the poison killings, driving Obama to draw the famous red line, which al-Assad promptly crossed and poisoned some more. The world was aghast that such dastardly implements of war, forbidden by the […]

Oh, Ouch! The 2019 Pig Book Just Came Out

Oh, Ouch! The 2019 Pig Book Just Came Out

    By Sigrid Weidenweber Yes, Ouch—for the outlook is grim. However, I am pleased that there is someone out there keeping an eye on Washington’s Piggery. Last year, too, I wrote about the waste of taxpayer money. I believe we need to know the results presented by the committee that keeps an eye on […]

A Case for the Death Penalty

A Case for the Death Penalty

    By Sigrid Weidenweber An old lawyer friend once told me during a conversation—we were discussing the merits of the death penalty—that he had hardened his stance on the matter. Over his life time, he had seen too many defendants in death-penalty cases that were changed to life imprisonment, walk free eventually. So, here […]

Remembering a Dissident Friend

Remembering a Dissident Friend

    By Sigrid Weidenweber Few might have noticed on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 the small article on the last page of the Wall Street Journal. It is entitled “A Dissident Outlives Soviet Communism” by Juliana Geran Pilon. The title is misleading. Vladimir Bukovsky is dead but Soviet-style Communism is alive and well with Vladimir […]

California, the Picture and Prime Example of Socialist-Capitalism

California, the Picture and Prime Example of Socialist-Capitalism

    By Sigrid Weidenweber The entire country has watched, as large areas of California lost electricity. Once again, the Santa Anas blew, necessitating the black-out. What does the one thing have to do with other you might ask—the connecting factor is Socialist-Stakeholder-Capitalism. Pay attention America, for this is what the left of the Democratic […]

Ethics, Morals, Truth and the Constitution (Part II)

Ethics, Morals, Truth and the Constitution (Part II)

    By Sigrid Weidenweber My last article addressed our split-society from the view- point of lawyer, seeing that laws, once serving well, are now circumvented or not enforced. Since then, I have looked at the facts with the eye of a religious conservative. Most intriguing was an article in the Wall Street Journal’s Notable […]

Ethics, Morals, Truth and the Constitution (Part I)

Ethics, Morals, Truth and the Constitution (Part I)

    By Sigrid Weidenweber It piques my interest, when on the same day two essays show up on my desk with almost identical topics but different reasons for the demise of a society that lost the majority of moral, responsible thinkers and is cleaved into two, diametrically opposed, factions. One way of reasoning deals […]

The Art in Politics

The Art in Politics

    By Sigrid Weidenweber In the new Democrat Theater of the absurd—a nameless whistleblower with lawyer-scripted complaint—I came, while reading my morning pensum of Wall Street Journal news, upon a truly intriguing and even funny article, astounding in its dramatic perception. It’s title “Would Shakespeare Impeach Trump,” instantly caught my attention. My fertile mind […]
