Rose Nylund Struck Down -- St. Olaf, Minnesota In Shock


Friends, many of you will echo my condolences to the family of legendary actress Betty White, who died today.  As a fan of the Golden Girls, I enjoyed White's acting talents immensely.  "They don't make 'em like her anymore" is the stock phrase one would expect to hear on occasions like these.  In this case, the axiom fits.  White was entertaining, personally pleasant, and never hectored the American people once.  She will be missed!


In other news, here's more evidence that the lefties have gone bonkers.  The cause?  Trump Derangement Syndrome, aggravated by acute January 6th anxiety attacks.  This guy argues (with a straight face) that the events of January 6th, and the related threat to "American democracy", are, in combination, the biggest news story of the post-World War II era.  No hyperbole there! 

We've chronicled the many ways in which the political, cultural, and economic establishment interfered in the 2020 election to ensure that Joe Biden would "win" it, but here's a new wrinkle: the FBI may well have concocted a plot against Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, and sprung these revelations on the American people weeks before the election, as a sort of donation-in-kind to the Biden-Harris campaign.  Shocked?  You shouldn't be.  Trump haters thrive at the highest levels of federal law enforcement.


I see more and more stories like this one, which claim that Hispanics are tilting decisively towards the GOP.  Would I like to believe them?  You bet!  It's not easy, though.  Non-whites have shown a stubborn allegiance to the Democratic Party and to the Left.  My guess is that Republican gains with Hispanics in 2022 and 2024 will be more marginal than massive...but that could still contribute to solid GOP victories, and that's where the rubber meets the road.


AOC is claiming that we conservatives only criticize her because of our "deranged sexual frustrations".  Interesting!  Is my conservatism rooted in deep-seated sexual perversion?  Sure.  But I like to think I'm unique among conservatives.  Maybe I've been kidding myself all these years?  Yikes!


January 6th is going to be one fascinating day!  The Dems will mark it with vigils aplenty, reflecting on how close we came to fascism, mass murder, universal armageddon, etc.  Trump will mark it with a press conference in which he doubles down on all his (dubious?) claims about the 2020 election and gives the Washington press corps the middle finger.  Sounds like I should hit "record" on my VCR!


How should scarce anti-COVID treatments be parceled out?  According to race and ethnicity, of course, since "systemic racism" is a major risk factor for...well, every disease you can think of.  The growing racialization of American health care ought to scare the hell out of us! 

And finally, in news affecting the young, did you know that abortion is, globally, the leading cause of death?  I sure didn't!  I mean, I knew that abortion was widespread, but its demographic impact and its moral gravity are greater than I ever would have guessed.  And, in a related story, 400,000 "anchor babies" are born to non-U.S. mothers, giving birth in the U.S., every year.  That's a high number, especially when one considers that people authorized to live in the U.S. -- citizens, for instance -- have so few babies to begin with.  And, as we now know, that's partly because they'd much rather have abortions!  What a world.  What a country. 


  1. Dr.Waddy from Jack: Betty White was a graceful lady. How I hate to see those of her Greatest Generation go. What a privilege it has been to know so many of them and to enjoy the unprecedentedly prosperous era they assured us, through so much terror, storm and sacrifice including my boomer generation's not nearly inclusive but yet far too widespread scorn!

  2. Dr. Waddy from Jack: You know, I think the left thinks it has the Catholic church well in hand. "Why of course, it is the very manifestation of all we resist!" Ehh, think again, as have so many over the last 2000 years HAD to do. Consider its effect on the atheistic Marxist fronting leaders of Poland when Saint John Paul landed to the ACCLAIM of millions in his land. They were recorded visibly trembling! Well might they!

  3. Dr.Waddy from Jack : OK , AOC spews! How far does her influence reach? She could well be the rallying point of the resolutely, uncompromising American left. In this role we can count on her, in her juvenile lack of restraint in expressing far leftist dreams and visions, to express ultimate far leftist perceptions and objectives. Let us endorse these as true assertions of their intent! And let us take heed and action!

  4. Yes, Jack -- there can be little doubt that the rising generations leave much to be desired, and the passing generations take with them a good chunk of the common sense and moral fiber that sustained America. None of this bodes well.

    Sometimes, we on the right have to thank Providence for supplying us with such dim-witted and self-destructive ideological adversaries. AOC is a case in point. The higher she rises in the Democratic Party, the better it will be for conservatives. The problem is that the party of Joe Biden may be too savvy to indulge AOC's ambitions much more than it already has. Time will tell.

  5. Dr.Waddy from Jack: Oh ,so now Jan.6 was an unprecedented serious coup attempt?! Well, bless me for a fool! But gee, where was the planning, where was the coordinated seizure of communication, transportation, why even miltary advantages one would expect in a self respecting modern COUP de ETAT? Take over the gargantuan American government? A tall order yes indeedy! That there is a continuing very serious, multifaceted campaign to do the same is certain though it consists in the relentless campaign of the American left to effect "fundamental transformation" of American public and " private" life according to the dictates of their totalitarian elite. It is not surprising that the American left wishes to divert attention from this reality and in doing so stop the increasing determination of an aroused and motivated democratic and free real America to defeat them.

  6. Dr.Waddy from Jack: The reversal of ever more presumptuous efforts to advance completely unfettered, casual killng of unborn babies in this country may be at hand this year. If so, it may mark the beginning of the end for a disgracefully bizarre interlude in our national progress and the rightful discreditation of its sociopathic champions!

  7. True, Jack -- there are lots of "slow-motion insurrections" to go around... The Left's uprising against Western Civilization comes to mind.

    Abortion may face new restrictions in the U.S., yes. If anything, though, it's even more prevalent and even less constrained overseas, so I'd say the proponents of "life" have their work cut out for them!

  8. Dr. Waddy from Jack: We cannot legis!ate or adjunicate the world. But if we stand as an example of rejection and condemnation of this inhuman casual practice, we will have done all we can do! God help the unborn!
