Let’s take a moment to cool off from insane news. As I suspect do most other Americans, I feel frozen in place, shell shocked, anxious–experiencing dread, even terror, contemplating our nation’s future. I can’t write about any of it mindfully, coherently.
Before I can “pick a target,” a new one appears, overwhelming all motivation. This is, of course, by the design of the mendacious foes of the USA. Let’s take a moment to cool off, regroup, and pray hard for our Republic.
God bless you all and God bless the United States of America.
Celebrating Father’s Day:
In 1924, U.S. President Calvin Coolidge officially urged Americans to celebrate a national Father’s Day. By 1966, President Lyndon B.

As mobs gather across our country to “honor” George Floyd, let’s take more than a moment to remember the brave, proud, patriotic, glorious young men who stormed the beaches of Normandy 76 years ago today, so that we all might remain free.

This weekend, we remember those who gave their last measure of devotion so that we might remain free and continue to enjoy the blessings of the greatest Republic the world has ever known:

She, thinking it was the gardener, saith to him: Sir, if thou hast taken him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
