City of Hate: Charlottesville church hosts anti-jewish, anti-white Malik Z. Shabazz

On the heels of Charlottesville’s violent, August 12 White Nationalist rally, a local church is hosting a notorious purveyor of anti-semitic, anti-white rhetoric. Mt. Zion First African Baptist Church is slated to host a “support rally town hall” for those “who were victimized on 8/12/2017.” The September 27 event will be led by attorney Malik […]

The Perriello Paradigm: The Compromise of Faith for the Advancement of Political Power

  “How great was once Rome, when the Patricians in her Senate ruled with nobility, seeking strength from the gods, for the betterment of her people. How sad is Rome now, for not only have the gods been forsaken, but the interests of her people as well. For this reason, we cease to be.” -Gnaeus […]

Pro-death: “Catholic” Jane Dittmar endorsed by pro-abortion groups

Following a high profile endorsement, Jane Dittmar, the Democrat candidate for Virginia’s Fifth District congressional seat can no longer hide beneath a veil of obfuscation when it comes to abortion. A nominal “Catholic,” Dittmar has been strangely silent on the topic throughout many months of campaigning—and a complicit media has not asked the questions that […]

America’s Warning Signs (The Tragic Result of Flying Blind)

I was reading about the circumstances regarding the crash of Aeroperu Airlines Flight 603 (2 October 1996). It was truly an accident that need not have happened, and it was due solely to human error. The maintenance crew had taped over the static ports before washing the plane, and neglected to remove the tape afterwards. […]

Holding out for a hero: the failure of feminism

The other evening while at dinner, thanks to boisterous voices, I could not help but overhear the adjacent table full of twenty-something women, bemoaning how difficult it is today to find good men. As they shared their terrible experiences, I could not help but to remember the Bonnie Tyler song from the mid-eighties, lamenting the […]

War on women: Pat Fitzgerald attacks Greene County women, clerk Kim Davis

Through an editorial call for civility in local politics—and in conjunction with a recent social media post—the editor of the Greene County record, Pat Fitzgerald, clearly exposes the provenance of his animus. Fitzgerald’s grammatically challenged editorial subtly defending embattled County Administrator, John Barkley, and inept Board of Supervisors’ Chair, David Cox, perpetuates a dishonest narrative […]

Parts is parts: “Baby-friendly” UVa compels medical donation of abortees

In a sadly ironic twist, the University of Virginia Hospital has been designated as “Baby-Friendly” by Baby-Friendly USA, an offshoot of the pro-abortion World Health Organization and United Nations Children’s Fund. The University press release lauds itself for meeting the following criteria: Regularly communicating a written breastfeeding policy to all healthcare staff Training staff on how to […]
