This week's syndicated column

One thing an old Ivy League revolutionary can’t stand is people noticing that he represents the Establishment, that he embodies the System to a point where he can make it stop and make it go. He will go to great lengths to convince himself, if not others, this is not so.

Take Eric H. Holder Jr., Columbia College Class of 1973, Columbia Law School Class of 1976, now into his sixth year as U.S. attorney general of the Obama Imperium. The man really wants us to think he is not also “the man.”

Yes, he is “the attorney general of the United States,” as Holder told a group of St. Louis Community College students in Ferguson, Missouri, this week. “But I am also a black man.”

Holder took himself to Ferguson to spur the federal civil rights probe by more than 40 FBI agents into the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, who was black, by 28-year-old police officer...

Freddie, 7 mos., views a genuine wetland in the North Country

Re-entry to email after a restful hiatus from all things electronic became much easier on coming across this extremely generous letter of August 5.



Dear Diana West:

As you so convincingly demonstrate, Marxism, metastasizing throughout the world as communism, is purely destructive in nature. It is like Mephistopheles, who says of himself in Goethe’s Faust, “I am the spirit that always negates! And rightly so, for, all that exists deserves to perish. Therefore it were better that nothing came into existence. So then all that you call sin, destruction—in short, evil—is my actual element.”

Our affinity with Marxism’s materialistic spirit, which first arose in the West and was exported into Russia through Lenin, makes us particularly vulnerable to the powerful stealth attack of communism, which continues today to destroy our best...

Some people like crossword puzzles. Other read mysteries. If puzzles about American Betrayal are your bag, here are two new and quite interesting entries in the genre, both of which came out on August 6, one year minus one day before the 1st anniversary of the disinformation campaign that began with the tastefully titled "McCarthy on Steroids."

"Content vs. Process" by Baron Bodissey at Gates of Vienna is here.

Ronald and Di: A Linguistic Perspective" by Marten Gantelius at JRNyquist.com is here.

In case you missed, here is my latest contribution.

Enjoy.

Announcing Tattoo Zoo, a new novel by Paul Avallone, whose clarifying essays and remarkable photos have previously appeared at this website. Paul Avallone has "done" Afghanistan -- as a Green Beret there for three-plus years, as a photojournalist embedded with US Army infantry units, and now a novelist.

From Amazon:

This is the story of the courage, camaraderie and sacrifice of the men of the fictional platoon of the title, as these GIs fight a fierce Taliban in a nowhere piece of picturesque real estate called Wajma Valley, while battling a politically correct four-star command determined to prosecute the Zoosters for war crimes or simply leave them in the valley to die.

Sounds like the real deal. Congrats, Paul!

This week's syndicated column

There is something deeply shameful about the official American response to this week’s unprecedented gunning down of a U.S. Army two-star general by an Afghan army soldier.

The president of the United States says nothing for two whole days. His spokesmen lie. The media disseminate the nothingness and lies, the mass of it couched to construct the alternate universe the deceivers in power have mastered.

This deception is all-encompassing, utilizing little lies as well as big ones. For example, the attack took place inside a Kabul military training academy we are told is “Afghanistan’s West Point.” If the Afghan National Military Academy equals West Point (already absurd), then it follows that the murder of U.S. Army...
