Pairsing The Truth

Pairsing The Truth

One of my favorite sayings about Truth is: “Truth is simple, and delights in simple statements. It expects to make its way by its own intrinsic force, and is willing to pass for what it is worth.  Error is noisy and declamatory, and hopes to succeed by substituting...
Pray and Work for Those Whom We Love

Pray and Work for Those Whom We Love

Many aspects of this post will not be easy to read—they’re not easy to write. I’m working on a fourth novel, set in D.C., with angels and demons which are visible to the reader, though not to the characters in the story, similar to my first novel, On The Edge. This...

A Bridge to No Trump

My usual schedule is to post an essay near the end of each month, but the events of the past few days have intervened for this first month of 2021. First, let me stipulate several important points: I am a conservative, a veteran, husband, father, grandfather and...

A Warning

A Warning

This post is a warning which we should take seriously. George Floyd died on May 25th in Minneapolis. In the ensuing three months we have witnessed demonstrations, peaceful protests, violent riots, the destruction of urban centers, the rise of Black Lives Matter,...

Term Limit Trumps The Mob

As readers of this space know, I agonized over the 2016 election as a gamble between a largely unknown but troubling personality vs. policies which I believed would harm our country. I took the gamble on Trump’s personality, largely persuaded by my beliefs on abortion...
ABLM

ABLM

I truly believe that Black lives matter. The question I’m about to ask is not snarky or a rhetorical gimmick. It is a genuine question which I hope one or more Progressives will answer. To some–even many–people Black lives matter, unless they are about to...
