August 10,2018 | This weekend, a group called “Unite the Right” is planning an alt-right, “white civil rights” rally at Lafayette Square in Washington DC. The organizer, Jason Kessler, had hoped to hold the rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, but due to the violence that broke out last year, his request for a permit was denied. Last week he received final approval from the Park Service to host his rally in Washington, D.C. on Sunday, August 12.

Question: What is the difference between a white Civil Rights rally (which a majority of Americans condemn) and a national holiday honoring a Declaration of Independence that glorifies ‘discovery’ and dehumanizes native people as ‘merciless Indian savages’ (which virtually all Americans celebrate)?
I would argue there is very little difference.

August 7, 2018 | The church I used to serve in Phoenix shared space with a preschool. It was also a polling site in every election.
I used to set up a card table in our courtyard area, outside of where people were going in to vote, and I’d have cookies or donuts or something, and

also church brochures and swag, for anybody who wanted to stop and chat about the church. It was always a bit of happy chaos in the mornings, when all the preschool kids were getting dropped off AND neighbors were coming through to vote.

She's a Kentucky native, a long-time desert dweller, and she writes about the sacred thread that runs through pretty much everything.

Sep 5, 2018 | May I just say, for the record, to hell with this person, whoever it is.

Over the past two days, I've become increasingly annoyed by the careerist bleatings of anonymous sources who would like you to know that, by enabling El Caudillo Del Mar-a-Lago and his long, slow slide into howling madness, they are really keeping him from doing some real damage to the country, and shouldn't we all be grateful for their noble, selfless work.

Part 1: The Real John McCain, by Jack Kerwick

Jack Kerwick, Straight Line Logic <>

August 26, 2018 | As soon as John McCain had been diagnosed with brain cancer, Democrats and Republicans in Washington and the press spared no opportunity to lavish praise upon this lifelong government employee.

The truth, though, is that in exchange for the billions and billions of dollars that McCain has confiscated from them for well over three decades, taxpayers have received an ever-burgeoning administrative state, relentless illegal immigration from the Third World, and, of course, war—and all while McCain has pretended to be a “conservative.”

Jack Kerwick: His area of specialization is ethics and political philosophy. He is a professor of philosophy at several colleges and universities in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Jack blogs at At the Intersection of Faith & Culture.

Part 2: What the McCain Eulogies Tell Us About the Media and the Regime

Tom Woods, Tom Woods Show 27, 2018 | People tell me I should not criticize him right now.

I do think some people are behaving in bad taste. But I do not think I am prohibited from making sober remarks at a moment when so many Americans, and the opinion molders who tell them what to think, are getting ludicrously carried away.

The phenomenon we are witnessing is so Orwellian that I can’t resist exploring it. I am less concerned with criticizing McCain — there will be ample time for that — than I am with trying to understand the regime under whichwelive, and the media lackeys that glorify it.

"Not by Might, Nor by Power": The Zionist Betrayal of Judaism ~ Moshe Menuhin

  • With a new introduction by Adi Ophir: An early and fierce critique of Zionism from a Jewish child of Palestine who argued against nationalism and injustice.
  • Described in Barnes and Noble

Born in 1893, Moshe Menuhin was part of the inaugural class to attend the first Zionist high school in Palestine, the Herzliya gymnasium in Tel Aviv. He had grown up in aHasidichome, but eventually rejected orthodoxy while remaining dedicated to Judaism.
As a witness to the evolution of Israel, Menuhin grew disaffected with what he saw as a betrayal of the Jews’ spiritual principles. This memoir, written in 1965, is considered the first revisionist history of Zionism. A groundbreaking document, it discusses the treatment of the Palestinians, the effects of the Holocaust, the exploitation of the Mizrahi Jewish immigrants, and the use of propaganda to win over public opinion in America and among American Jews. In a postscript added after the Six-Day War, Menuhin also addresses the question of occupation. This new edition is updated with an introduction by Israeli philosopher Adi Ophir, putting Menuhin’s work into a contemporary historical context.

Moshe Menuhin, one of the early anti-Zionists, once wrote … , “Jews should be Jews—not Nazis.” He was speaking of the Israeli oppression of Palestinians.
