“Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand.”—T.D. Melrose

The Enemy Inside The Gates
(The Feature Article)

Chicken or Egg?
Chicken or Egg?

We are not the ones who declared
war on Western Civilization.


Letters to the Editor
from Mike Blessing

The Enemy Inside The Gates
by L. Neil Smith
Just take a good look at their faces, Senator Chuck Schumer, Speaker-of-the-House Nancy Pelosi, and Slinker-in-the-Wallboards Venezuela Ocasio-Cortez, to name only three, somehow smarmy and grim at the same time. Listen to their voices, both threatening and calming. Learn to recognize these vermin for what they are: the enemies of Western Civilization.

The Despicable Savage And Other Tales
by Sarah A. Hoyt
Humans are funny creatures. Particularly now. I think the biggest difference between us and our ancestors is not that we’re living way longer, that very few humans are actually starving to death, that we can talk to people around the globe in the blink of an eye, or that we don’t need to feel the changing seasons, if we have even moderate wealth. Sure, those are MASSIVE differences, but the difference I’m talking about is bigger than that because it gets in the head and into what makes us humans.

Peace Seminars 4 Fixing Things
by Christy Bella Joiner and Jim Davidson
In the last few weeks I've had a number of email exchanges and conversations with a very wise and good former model, actress, producer, and musician named Christy Bella Joiner. We first encountered one another on a Twitter direct message discussion group called "Voices for Peace" organised by our mutual friend Marchella. As a result of these discussions, we came up with the idea of creating a series of Peace Seminars. The first of these seminars will be later this year, feature two speakers and at least one musician, and include a catered after party. Subsequent seminars this year and next are intended to focus attention on wars and on violence in our homes and communities, including especially violence toward those least able to defend themselves, and slavery. By holding these seminars during 2020 and bringing attention to their topics, we may expect to encourage candidates in the presidential election to feel obligated to speak on the issue. Moreover, we expect to bring together people who identify as White Roses, seek peace, and do good.

Living in a House of Cards
by Manuel Miles, aka Kaptain Kanada
It's sad and it's not what I wish for the Americans and the British and the Europeans and us Canadians, but the cold hard reality is that historical facts don't care about our wishes, desires or feelings. No culture in history ever survived for long after this kind of decay had set in, no matter how much they tried to con themselves into believing in their alleged "exceptionalism".

Comments on the “Rocket Docket” of Victim Disarmament Legislation
by Mike Blessing
First, I am writing to say that some of the legislation under consideration by the committee is not properly labelled as “gun control”. Gun control constitutes the safe, proficient, and proper use of a firearm — the four safety rules, stance, grip, sight alignment and picture, breathing, trigger operation, target selection, etc.

Guess What Bill? You’re Not that Smart
by Sean Gangol
In my last article “Stan Lee: A Tribute”, I made a brief mention of how Bill Maher decided to belittle those who mourned the passing of Stan Lee. He also blamed both Lee and millions of comic book readers for the election of Donald Trump. If you are wondering how comic books and the election of Donald Trump are even connected, then you are not alone. It would seem ridiculous to suggest that Stan Lee or anyone else at Marvel would try to influence its readers to vote for Donald Trump, since Lee was always a staunch liberal and Marvel is hardly what you would call a Right-Wing company (understatement of the century). I think what Maher was really trying to say was that millions of voters were dumbed down by both comic books and the movies based on them. I suppose that was what he was trying to say, since he then gave comic book fans a lecture about putting away childish things. Of course, when you take a swing at a man who had just died, along with millions of his fans, you are definitely going to face backlash. While Maher tried in vein to backtrack on what he said about Lee, he basically double-downed on what he said about comic book fans. He said that their anger over his comments, pretty much proved his point.

Norseman’s Diaries Supplemental: Prelude to the Year of Reinvention
by Jeff Fullerton
This is going to be the Year of Reinvention as I have recently dubbed the theme of the next installment of the series and ambitious plans for the season briefly outlined in the previous installment. However things seem to have gone south along with the deep penetration of the Polar Vortex plaguing even Texas and the Southland yet again.

I Apologize
by L. Neil Smith
I apologize to the entire Earth, to everybody living on it, to all creatures great and small, and to the blue heavens high above.
