“Only A Pawn in Their Game”

By |2020-10-30T18:01:08-04:00October 30th, 2020|Categories: Blog, Featured, Politics|

The following is from Peter Churins, editor of The Charles City Conservative (Newsletter) The banner above is apparently a political advertisement in favor of Joseph Biden in his bid to become president in the November 3rd election. It implies that “Joe” is the compassionate one and President Trump is not. I find it to be grossly disingenuous in both real time and from a historical perspective. Ain’t No Compassion Here The Democrat Party was the party of slavery predominantly [...]

Vote YES on Amendment #1

By |2020-10-13T17:05:47-04:00October 13th, 2020|Categories: Blog, Elections, Featured, Government, Politics|

Blue Virginia has a bright banner on their web site declaring “Defeat Gerrymandering. Vote NO on Amendment #1. This statement is unbelievable, because Amendment #1 is crafted to ELIMINATE Gerrymandering! Why are Democrats now against it? Because they are in power and THEY get to draw the districts! Make no mistake, the push to defeat Amendment #1 is an attempt to allow Democrats to redraw lines based on the 2020 Census to ensure their party’s advantage for decades to come. [...]

Observations on the Protests and Protestors

By |2020-09-15T20:33:21-04:00September 15th, 2020|Categories: Blog, Featured, Politics|

I have watched with concern the activities in numerous cities across the nation as non-violent protests have turned violent and parts of cities look like war zones. Here are some of my observations. When you peel back the thin veneer of civilized behavior, what you find underneath is a simmering anger and hatred without obvious cause. The problem is that these folks have been raised without a clear understanding of human nature. They are taught to be polite, be nice, [...]

Antifa and Kristallnacht

By |2020-12-23T09:22:13-05:00June 27th, 2020|Categories: Blog, Featured, Government, Politics|Tags: , , |

Dear Reader;   The Tea Party was initially a rowdy bunch, loud, sometimes disruptive, and focused on a few goals: smaller government, lower taxes, maximum freedom. The active protesters we are seeing now have a different dynamic. Peaceful but forceful messages are hijacked by the agitators who strike the match of mob action. Nihilistic, unlawful, destructive, godless, anarchists are enforcing their messages to the world through a willing press. This cannot continue; the goal is to annihilate our entire system [...]

Like Prohibition, Gun Control Won’t Work Either

From Randy Hall   Philosopher George Santayana once wrote, 'Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.' In 1920 the United States attempted to remove the societal evils of alcohol by enacting Prohibition. Proving to be an abysmal failure it was repealed in 1933. While failing to control alcohol it did manage to create several other problems in its wake. Many Americans went from law abiding citizens to criminals with its enforcement and organized crime created a lucrative [...]

Why We Might Lose the Virginia House and Senate

By |2020-12-23T09:28:05-05:00August 20th, 2019|Categories: Blog, Congress, Elections, Government, Politics|

By Susan Lascolette There’s no doubt that the Virginia House and Senate are operating under razor-thin political margins – a 2-seat difference in the Senate and a 1-seat difference in the House.  The elections on November 5th may be a tipping point. In the Senate: Eleven of the Democratic Senator candidates are running unopposed and another five have only an independent challenger.  In contrast, only one Republican Senator candidate is running unopposed and another four have just an independent [...]
