God

A Spiritual Failing of The Left

OLD ON TO YOUR HAT HARRY. I don't think I can let you off the hook that easily—I think we can agree that the problem with the most liberal of the liberals—those who want to engage in political talk at the dinner table, and then woe to you if you disagree, is at heart spiritual. They remind me of those people referred to in the old Hebrew testament who built that tower in Babel so they could be like God. Wasn't there also a reference to them by Dostoyevsky, the fussy Russian writer? The liberal mind set seems to be:...

You Gotta Serve Somebody

UR DULY ESTEEMED ESSAYIST Clarice Feldman writing a piece n today's cluster of new American Thinker articles, describes the Left as people delighted... "...in the absolute certainty of the righteousness and soundness of their views, and their right to have them automatically accepted as the approved model for all right thinking people." Progressives hold about a dozen core beliefs plus variations. Half of their beliefs contradict the other half. With a little study, skewering them can be reduced to just a few chess moves. The corrective screeching that results is music. We also welcome the contributions of American Thinker Robert...


Divine Guidance? President Of The Missing Links

THOUGH MANY AMERICANS believe this nation to have divine sanction, how many nations do not? Perhaps only communistic [regimes], though they appeal to a higher power, the divinity of the collective. All other nations believe that God blesses them. American exceptionalism is a contention that suffers from the [sad but forgivable] facts that we eradicated civilizations, labeling it euphemistically as a manifest destiny; built our wealth on enslavement; grew our territory through conquest; and now have the dubious honor of being among the leaders in the world of sanctioning the murder of our unborn. Though it is true there are...


The American Sisyphus

It's uncanny that both US political parties use the very same descriptions (right up to the same exact words) to incite fear among their own constituents in an attempt to soil their political opposition. Both fear the same outcomes, and accuse the other of being fearmongers. Both claim the same desires, and accuse the other of systematically thwarting the honest fulfillment and judicious harvest of their own spirit-filled policies. This money-charged he said, she said plants "hope in change" among the hapless voter classes every year or two, but the Sisyphian task of governing a critical mass remains critical as...


Marking Up The Union Sundown With Bob Dylan

JUST TO MAKE SURE YOU'VE UNDERSTOOD what I'm saying, here's another shot at conflating reality with a Bob Dylan lyric one redliner at a time. Yes, here again was the voice that always managed to spin the magic far beyond the usual malapropism of contemporary songwriter genius. No matter how we choose to slice the banana, it seems that Dylan with Infidels had grabbed a direct pipeline from GOD in shaking down the Barack Obama bug some twenty-six years before the facts themselves show up to kick us in the pants. Sure, he was observing the germane times in which...
