·        I hope you all enjoyed a great Father’s Day yesterday, or as some call it, Toxic Masculinity Awareness Day.

·        I’m wondering if voters in the Mile High City are suffering a mass outbreak of altitude sickness resulting in cerebral edema. How else do you put any kind of logical spin on the results of their recent election?   

·        PowerLine had comments on the Oberlin situation. Will Oberlin Learn Its Lesson? Not with faculty like this. Can you imagine paying tuition for your child to take such intellectually challenging courses as those taught by Dean Raimondo. Dean? If forced to pay the entire judgement, Oberlin’s survival might be in question. That could be a good thing and an object lesson for others.

·        I read Sydney Powell’s book, Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption In The Department Of Justice, over the weekend. I can’t begin to tell you the sense of outrage I felt on finishing the book. Most of the vipers mentioned in the book are still in positions of power and influence instead of having been disbarred. I highly recommend it to anyone who isn’t aware of how out of control federal prosecutors have become. Be prepared to be totally outraged by the behavior chronicled in the book.

·        I’ve had about enough of political correctness in the Military. This is outrageous! CAIR seems to have successfully gotten the U.S. Army War College to cancel an address by a native Arabic speaker of Egyptian/Middle Eastern descent, who wrote Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War between Islam and the West.

·        This is an excellent article about the politics involved surrounding the conflict between Gen. Douglas McArthur and President Truman. I highly recommend it.
