The better half in the Trinity Waters household proclaimed this tonight. Perfect. Please analyze and comment.
This author makes interesting points, correctly identifies the defining characteristic of Teddy R., but may be too pessimistic. I see glimmers of hope that our populace may be beginning to see the underlying character issues that set many on a treacherous path. Maybe I’m too optimistic, but erring in the opposite direction is stultifying. Here’s a link to the article from the American Greatness site, which is a growing purveyor of interesting conservative thought.
Trump is going to address the nation from the Oval tonite. I’ll bet some Iranians are going to meet the 12th Imam ahead of schedule. Stop reading, those who shrink from direct language. These ghouls are going to get their just desserts. If you don’t hate evil and try to crush it, you are immoral. Trump is not immoral. We’ll see how this goes, but it’s a dim outlook for the seventh century barbarians. Obumbler will hate this, because I suppose our reaction will insult Allah, and Valerie Jarrett may suffer family losses.
Patton was a serious man, and thankfully he left behind two missives that defined his leadership within the realm of Christmas during the legendary Battle of the Bulge. First is the prayer he commissioned from Third Army Chaplain Msgr. Francis O’Neill for better fighting weather and then his personal Christmas greeting to his troops. As the Commander of the Third Army, as a Lieutenant General (three stars, like Flynn), and as a God fearing man, he spoke from his heart with a two-part Christmas message to his Army.
“Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies, and establish Thy justice among men and nations. Amen.” Then his greeting: “To each officer and soldier in the Third United States Army, I wish a Merry Christmas. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We march in our might to complete victory. May God’s blessings rest upon each of you on this Christmas Day. -G.S. Patton, Jr. Lieutenant General, Commanding, Third United States Army.”... [Read More]
Almost didn’t click on this, even though the headline interested me, because this is via CNN, a herald of our arch enemies. But, like Gomer said, surprise, surprise, surprise!
Not necessarily in order of importance:
The new Bongino Report site is well laid out, easy to navigate and filled with very current items. This guy has turned into a media rockstar.... [Read More]
Rome is the center of the universe, I will argue vehemently, forever. With the Intercontinental Hotel at the Spanish Steps in Rome as our base of operations, my bride and I wandered mostly on foot throughout the city. The sheer amount of legendary sightseeing overwhelms. The Vatican museum in itself is worth the effort to get to Rome. I took 1,100 pictures with my new digital Sony CD500 Mavica camera in May of 2002 as we flew to Venice, and then went by train went to Pisa for a day, Florence, and Rome, with a day trip to Pompeii. We spent a week each in Venice, Florence and Rome. The fastest three weeks of our lives. Here’s some of the pix in installment 1 of Italy Revisited.
The first thought after seeing this was to make sure my fellow Ratters see it, too. The is a 19 minute glimpse into some recent history that is epic in nature; it’s horrifying, interesting, thought provoking and metaphysical all at once. This video’s impact is on par with Bill Whittle’s examination of the nuclear strikes on Japan.
American Thinker is indispensable to me:
Polls are deservedly not trusted or believed in most cases, but I quote these two just because they are mind boggling if the numbers are even in the same sector of the truth galaxy. A headline from Gateway Pundit:
“HUGE! Black Support for President Donald Trump HITS 34% in BOTH Emerson and Rasmussen Polls!”
