In the War of 1812, Francis Scott Keys wrote The Star-Spangled Banner, a tribute to our flag kept aloft by patriots who sacrificed their lives every time it was knocked down one perilous night by withering cannon fire from 100 + British Men of War anchored off Fort McHenry. The Fort was not a full-fledged military establishment and contained many families with abundant women and children but that was immaterial to the invaders.
On Jan. 6, X-President Trump’s shock troops turned our flag upside down and used their poles to stab, maim, and kill police, hunt legislators they could murder, and desecrated the U.S. Capitol a stone’s throw from the White House the British burned during the same War of 1812. Men and women in the hundreds of thousands have died under our flag to preserve freedom and our way of life. It’s a time of choosing whether we are Americans, or worshipers of pagan god.
Now that Donald J. Trump is no longer residing in the White House, Republicans and conservatives, throughout the country, are reflecting upon the role the one-term president should play in determining the party’s future. Due to the attack upon the Capitol of January 6, the issue has become front and center for many party members. Some are surprised that Trump still wields enormous power. Others are not only not surprised but are pleased that he is still doing so.
On Friday, I discussed current political events with Quin Hillyer, who is the Senior Commentary and Editor for the Washington Examiner.
Republicans just a few weeks ago were scouring major cities across the country to find a new location for their national convention, scheduled for mid-August. The GOP had originally planned to congregate in Charlotte North Carolina, but the governor set extremely strict standards for any type of large gathering. President Trump seems dead set on going to a more friendly environment. New Orleans was initially in the running.
There is a huge financial stake involved, with some 40,000 conventioneers projected to be attendance at wherever the location may be. The economic impact is estimated to be well over $200 million. Such conventions prove to be a huge financial generator for hotels, restaurants, cab drivers, bars and a whole host of local of entertainment options the fuel the local economy of any convention city.
Everyone with common sense, by now, has realized that their resolutions for the New Year are headed for another heap of aspirational disappointment. The pundits, as is their want, saw a future no more reliable than what the Oracle of Delphi’s spake.
The problem with seers, Nostradamus and client scientists excepted, is that they divine for the short
From and leave the breadth of human history to the halls of academia, and Oliver Stone. We’ve decided to help and offer a view of humanity in these United States for the decade of the 20’s. They will be roaring, but not with happiness.

Resistance: The refusal to accept or comply with something; the attempt to prevent something by action or argument.
America has now reached the point where it needs a third party because what we have is not working. President Washington’s warnings about the evils of partisanship have come to roost. Democrats are incapable to accepting defeat in Presidential election, so they resist. Republicans lack the ability to lead.
Former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has penned an oped published in the Wall Street Journal yesterday that took a not-to-subtle swipe at Republican President Donald Trump, the Republican Party and of course, the Democrats and President Barack Obama. The column was somewhat reminiscent to Jindal's "stupid party" statement he made post-Mitt Romney presidential loss.
