Friend or Foe?


Compadres, the recent publication of a report detailing contacts between some of the 9/11 hijackers and various Saudi nationals was, we assume, meant to cast the Saudi regime in a bad light, and presumably was meant also to justify the Biden Administration's pivot towards Iran and away from "The Kingdom".  Well, I'm not buying it.  For all the talk of Saudi complicity in the 9/11 attacks, no one has ever demonstrated that the Saudi government had foreknowledge of the terrorists' plans or approved of them or abetted them in any sense.  I view Saudi Arabia as one of our strongest and most reliable allies in the region -- and, as the Iranians flex their muscles, aggravating the Saudis makes less and less sense all the time.  I said as much in a recent interview with Sputnik News.  Check it out:


The insane COVID restrictions that have been inflicted on America's children since March 2020 truly boggle the mind, and their long-term effects on child development are scary to contemplate.  As this article suggests, it's time to SAVE THE CHILDREN -- from the adults trying to muzzle and imprison them! 

Governor Ron DeSantis in Florida is trying to pare back his state's testing requirements for children.  In other words, he's not a fan of standardized tests.  I respectfully disagree.  Results on standardized tests correlate very well with academic performance and intelligence more generally.  The movement to abolish testing is tantamount to an attempt to abolish merit, objective standards, and competition.  Ultimately, we need to know who's succeeding, and who's failing.  I can't think of a better way to find out than...with a test!


Finally, did you know that you can be fired from your job just for asking questions about the wisdom of recognizing transgender "women" as women?  Your company might even ask your opinion...and then you could be terminated for having the temerity to express it!  Alaska Airlines sounds like a business that no conservative, and no Christian, should ever patrionize. 


  1. Dr. Waddy from Jack: The fever of leftist politically correct dismissiveness( both popularly expressed and in political discourse) rages apace and has fell effect upon those in private management who MUST consider, as is their professional duty, factors other than those philosophically argumentative.

  2. Dr. Waddy from Jack: We all know, as do the politically correct automatons, that the smart kids do best on those tests. And unless the left takes over, the desire of elite universities to have smart students will continue, abated only by leftist insistence upon automatic admission of definitively "disadvantaged" candidates who often have little experience of demanding academia due to doctrinally forced advancement through politically compromised school systems.

  3. Jack, there is a way to square the circle you speak of -- academia's insistence on including students who are manifestly incapable of "doing the work" -- and that's by lowering standards, and when that doesn't do the trick, you lower them again. Intellectual/academic standards are by no means the only front on which these battles are being waged, either. Expect corporate America to abandon objective standards of work performance too, for all the same reasons. It's already happening. The problem will compound unless we tranform our national discourse and rediscover the values we've lost. Civilization is on the brink!
