The Gettysburg Gospel, Thanksgiving and the Rebirth of Freedom in America

"But above all else, let's not mess up
this second chance to get America right"

Thanksgiving should be celebrated more as a memorial covenant to the “born again” America that Lincoln talked about at Gettysburg than solely being remembered for Squanto’s kindness towards the Puritans. 

We have this trinity of “holy” civic documents underlying our collective life together in America: the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution and the Gettysburg Address.

The majority party of Lincoln/Grant Republicans and RFK Democrats

"I wonder if Democrats will always hate
communism, crime and destroying capitalism?"
I was talking with a prominent older African-American Democrat the other day and told him I thought I might be a “Lincoln/Grant Republican and a RFK Democrat” based on what they believed back in the day.

He thought for a moment and said, “You know, I just might be one of them too!”

Gary from China

'You can make it if you try...
and you want to work hard and study
and you have got a great, great mother!'
​Progressives want America to buy into their cartoonish vision about rich people.

They want voters to believe that only white people can get rich in America; rich white people have always been rich, and rich white people had ancestors who made their fortunes by owning slaves. They think America is a caste system like India where no one can ever move up or down the socio-economic scale.

They need to meet Gary from China.

Will Dave Chappelle and Enes Kanter Be On The Second Mount Rushmore?



Future historians may look back 200 years from now and target October 2021 as the time when comedian Dave Chappelle and pro basketball player Enes Kanter saved American free speech, freedom of thought and freedom of expression from extinction.

After years of political correctness, cancel culture and downright suppression of conservative free speech, Chappelle, a well-known comedian with a history of controversy; and Kanter, a Turkish-born Boston Celtics basketball player who has taken on the presidents of Turkey and China and now Nike, slammed massive flaming spears in the ground for free speech when almost every academic, business and political leader couldn’t, wouldn’t, hasn’t or didn’t.

The Four Worst Four-Letter Words

There were a lot of four-letter words used in our household growing up. Dad used them regularly to get a person’s undivided attention in the shortest amount of time — and it worked.

However, there were four four-letter words that were not allowed in the Hill household: “Don’t,” “Won’t” and “Can’t” were three of them.

The absolute worst of all was “Quit.” That four-letter word was never tolerated so, therefore, was never used.

The Role of The Boogeyman in American Politics

"Who's scary now...me or Joe Biden?"
Anyone who has watched the “Halloween” movie series knows exactly what a boogeyman is. He is a scary character with a mask who scares the heck out of everyone via death and destruction until he is shot to death — only to resurrect back to life soon after to wreak more murder and mayhem in the neighborhood.

American politics specializes in making “boogeymen” of high-profile elected politicians. It is part of our historical DNA. Mostly because it works.

Joe Manchin is no budget hero but Krysten Sinema might be

"Joe: You might not want to 
save the Republic....But I might!"
West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin pretty much stuck a fork in the Radical Left-Wing Progressive Socialists’ (RLWPS, for short) aggressive and dangerous spending agenda when he announced that he would not support their so-called “human infrastructure” bill pegged at $3.5 trillion, which is really $5 trillion or a whole lot more if all the budget gimmicks are taken out of it. 

Manchin boldly went on to say: “Spending trillions more on new and expanded government programs, when we can’t even pay for the essential social programs, like Social Security and Medicare, is the definition of fiscal insanity.”

How To Think: A Survival Guide To A World At Odds

“Science” for liberals and “fiscal sanity” for conservatives quickly get sacrificed on the altar of rationalized political expediency when convenient to whatever point of view a person wants to take, apparently.

The Two Most Important Patriots You Have Never Heard Of

"Mr. Morris: Don't you hope future financiers
will love America as much as we do?"
"Sure do Mr. Morris. I sure do"


Robert and Gouverneur Morris. No relation. Ever heard of them? 

People think George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were the “indispensable” founders of the United States of America. 

Without financiers and fellow Founding Fathers Robert Morris and Gouverneur Morris, their lives most likely would have ended at the bottom of a noose around 1780. The Declaration of Independence would have been proven a bust and the Constitution would never have been written, which would have been a darn shame for liberty for billions of people worldwide since 1789.

The False Promise of Democrats To Pay For Infrastructure Bills

President Joe Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Majority Leader Chuck Schumer “promise” to pay for the $1.2 trillion “hard” — or real — infrastructure bill by socking it to the rich and corporations. They say the same thing about their $3.5 trillion “soft” human infrastructure bill. 

Washington hasn’t “paid for” any new legislation by cutting spending or raising taxes since PAYGO died an ignominious death in 2002. We haven’t had a truly deficit-neutral bill passed in close to 24 years. How can anyone claim without laughing out loud that any new bill since 2000 “has been paid for” when our debt has exploded since 2000?

9/11 then and now

Pentagon on 9/11
I was walking out of the door to go to a meeting in downtown D.C. on Tuesday morning, Sept. 11, 2001, when my wife told me a plane had just crashed into one of the Twin Towers in New York. “It probably was a guy who had a heart attack flying a Cessna. I wouldn’t worry about it,” I said somewhat casually before I said goodbye.

As I was driving down Route 50 in Northern Virginia with the top down on that glorious late summer morning, I noticed a puff of black smoke around 9:40 a.m. in the sky to my right.

Defeat Not Victory

President Biden is right. No matter when we left Afghanistan, it was going to be a mess. A big one.

But in the last two weeks, we’ve witnessed a failure by the United States that extends far beyond the normal chaos and calamity that defines Afghanistan and one that could have been avoided by a more precise execution of long-laid plans. 

The White House narrative blaming Afghans, the collapse of Afghan National Forces, and the traitorous, cowardly flight of President Ghani is diversionary, not too unlike the chaff being shot from our departing C-17s as a countermeasure to potential ground fire.

Santa Is Not Coming This Year

Children: you need to realize something. Santa Claus is not coming this year with a whole lot of toys and treats. 

COVID business shutdowns have taken their toll everywhere, but nowhere has it hit harder than with dear old Saint Nick’s operations at the North Pole. After all, what other business goes to every single home in the world in one night?

President Gerald R. Ford Saved 130,000 South Vietnamese Lives in 1975

"If only young Senator Joe
Biden had paid attention"
The past two weeks in Afghanistan have been an unnecessary and unmitigated humanitarian and geopolitical disaster.

It didn’t have to be this way. President Biden and his national security team appeared to be totally flummoxed when they tried to explain how the withdrawal of troops, America citizens and Afghani sympathizers became so chaotic under their watch.

Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin somewhat unbelievably said American military forces did not have the capability to go outside of the Kabul airport to get all of the estimated 11,000 Americans safely out of Kabul. There was hardly any talk about how this administration and national security leaders were going to evacuate the estimated 250,000 Afghani U.S. sympathizers who were translators, spies, drivers, informants and subcontractors who are now in danger of being executed by the Taliban.
