Has the Coup Already Happened?

Democrats in Congress, Democratic operatives in the deep state, and co-conspirators in the corporate leftist propaganda conglomerate are attempting to drive Trump from office. This hyperpartisan process rightly has been called an attempted coup. It is also a brazen fraud. In the immortal words of Woody Allen’s Fielding Melish, “it is a travesty . .

‘Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Western Civ Has Got to Go’

On January 15, 1987, Jesse Jackson and around 500 protesters marched down Palm Drive, Stanford University’s grand main entrance, chanting "Hey hey, ho ho, Western Civ has got to go." They were protesting Stanford University’s introductory humanities program known as “Western Culture.” For Jackson and the protesters, the problem was its lack of

See ‘Hotel Mumbai’

A new film, “Hotel Mumbai,” tells the story of the 2008 terrorist attacks in the Indian city of Mumbai. It is, I assure you, a film you want to see. It is more exciting than that action film playing next door in your town, better made than the films promoted by the Academy Awards, and
