Fred, it is hard to know how long Trump will "have his back". But it is clear certain powerful forces want to get rid of Miller, just as they want to get rid of Trump himself. It is interesting how the articles that try to target him conveniently fail to point out that he is Jewish; and that Breitbart is Jewish owned and controlled. They represent a small minority within American Judaism, but that is another matter.
For the last 4.5 years, we have witnessed news stories and media drumbeats intended to muster up outrage about President Trump and opposition. New story lines toward these purposes seem to arise every 2-3 days. This past week, it was about Stephen Miller, the young White House aide who essentially... Continue reading

The mainstream media has not paid much attention yet to the incident that was first reported earlier today. At NC State, the son of Congressman Dan Bishop was involved with a national conservative group engaging in free speech activities. He was physically assaulted by the vicious, violent left because of... Continue reading

I agree, Fred. And it appears Wray might have been right about a couple of things.
This is getting really fascinating. Only several weeks ago, James Hinson resigned his deputy chief position in the wake of revelations about a group home he co-owned with another gentleman who also had been a Greensboro Police Department officer. Today, we learned that Stacey Morton, another GPD officer, is on... Continue reading

Conservatives and constitutionists have grown acutely aware that the contemporary left wants to revoke the First and Second Amendments of the U.S. Constitution. The decades-long battle against the right to bear arms is well known. The intentional maneuvering to take away the religious liberty of orthodox Christians had been percolating... Continue reading

Most of those who have studied political systems understand that fascism is an ideology that sits on the left side of the political spectrum because it is a form of socialism. Sam Hieb at the Locker Room reports that the city of Greensboro is encouraging citizens to pressure restaurants and... Continue reading

Fred, the media would often be quite attuned to the protests of an aggrieved parent who had lost his or her child. But not in this case. Mr. Pollack will be roundly ignored except for the tiny slice of the media that is more conservative.
Fred, we apparently still have Common Core in North Carolina despite Republicans controlling the state legislature for a decade, controlling the governorship for four years, controlling the lieutenant governor's office for nearly a decade, controlling the state Superintendent of Education office, and having major influence at the state Board of Education.
Last week, we had posted here about an effort to water down the disciplinary policy within the Guilford County Schools system. Opposition was beginning to develop. The leaders of the system since then have posted an explanatory document that seeks to make the changes seem harmless. While the situation appears... Continue reading

Yes, Fred. And an earnestly expressed desire that she, during the final years of her life, became a Christian.
The news of the death of Kay Hagan this afternoon was a bit surprising. But it requires that we recount her most consequential stands as a public figure. She notably cast the deciding vote that allowed the passage of Obamacare. This directly led to perhaps millions of Americans losing health... Continue reading

I am hearing through the grapevine about an effort that seems to be afoot within the Guilford County Schools system. If we are to believe the text of this petition, our esteemed school board and superintendent are trying to tighten dramatically the circumstances under which a student can be suspended...

Taft Wireback, News and Record: Both congressmen said they hope that approving the United States-Mexico-Canada trade agreement is among things Congress can accomplish in the last half of this term, thereby creating a new trading relationship with those two bordering countries. The New American published last week an article that... Continue reading

Wow, Fred! You got autographs from some big names! I had never heard of the Crackers. Thanks for posting.
The success of the Atlanta Braves during the regular season was compelling to watch for the team's fan base (of which I count myself). When they entered the postseason, however, things changed. Both management and ballplayers failed to execute. A monkey wrench was also thrown in the machine. Jay Busbee... Continue reading

This past Saturday, I had the privilege of participating in a fairly extraordinary ministry. The sole abortion clinic in Greensboro is located on Randleman Rd. It has been existence for over two decades. It is a horrible place where human lives are deliberately taken nearly every work day. More than... Continue reading

It was very interesting yesterday to see that WND was casting a huge spotlight on the major HMO, Kaiser Permanente, pronouncing in a prominent advertisement its support of drag queen story hours for children. Of course, we were supposed to have had our own drag queen story hour for children... Continue reading

Fred, it appears that foolishness is endemic. Yet another argument to keep one's kids out of public schools.
I received last week a communication from the North Carolina Medical Society. It had hosted a Maternal and Infant Health Summit recently. Among the speakers? None other than Deena Hayes-Greene, the chairwoman of the Guilford County Board of Education. Ms. Hayes-Greene was wearing a different hat at the meeting, however:... Continue reading
