Drag Queen Revolution

Penna Dexter There are better ways to encourage literacy among children than exposing them to male transvestites at Drag Queen Story Hours. Drag Queen Story Hours feature flamboyant drag queens reading stories to children mostly in libraries, schools, bookstores, and sometimes bars. One parent says these performances expose kids to “beautiful people.” Gender queer academic Harris Kornstein said, “Drag queens can teach kids how to live queerly.” He said Drag Queen Story Hours foster “a queer rationality between adult and…

swatting - swat-team Raid by Police

Kerby Anderson Swatting has become a major problem in America. In case, you are not familiar with the term it is a form of harassment that occurs by calling in a fake report to law enforcement that often requires a SWAT unit to go to the victim’s home. It may involve a false report that shots have been fired or that a family member has been taken hostage. Swatting only got the attention of corporate media when Maine’s Secretary of…

HOR subpoena of bank officers

Kerby Anderson When I first mentioned that banks were urged to flag purchases of Bibles and religious material, I think most of my friends and listeners thought I was making this up. I wish I were. For anyone still skeptical, you merely need to read a few articles or tweets to see what is now being investigated. Representative Jim Jordan is the chairman of the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. Two weeks ago, he sent a…

The Virtue of Color-Blindness

Kerby Anderson Most Americans believe we should have a color-blind society. That was the direction the country was moving until a few anti-color-blind advocates promoted antiracism and critical race theory. Professor Andre Archie has written about The Virtue of Color-Blindness. He reminds us that the Declaration and the Constitution rest upon the idea that all are created equal. That includes all Americans, regardless of race. In the 1850s, the Frederick Douglass wing of the abolition movement made their case for…

WEF founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab

Kerby Anderson Yesterday while talking about the World Economic Forum and the gathering of global elites at Davos, Switzerland, I mentioned the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The term has been used to describe the remarkable changes in our world that have already taken place and will take place in the future. Here is how one article (Everything You Need to Know About the Fourth Industrial Revolution) describes the history. The First Industrial Revolution started in Britain around 1760 and was powered…

World_Economic_Forum_logo.svg

Kerby Anderson Earlier this month, leaders from all over the world descended on Davos, Switzerland for the World Economic Forum. Before the first speech was given, the perennial debate about its importance began. Noah Rothman has noticed that people who tend to be paranoid believe this “international gathering of elites is a threat.” But he is convinced that “these masters of the universe make profound embarrassments of themselves.” He illustrates his lack of concern about these meetings by reminding us…

Javier Milei of Argentina at WEF

Penna Dexter Argentina’s new president, Javier Milei delivered a warning to business and political leaders gathered last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Through a translator, he told an audience of global elites: “the Western world is in danger,” and he didn’t mean from climate change. He explained that those whose responsibility it is “to defend the values of the West are co-opted by a vision of the world that inexorably leads to socialism, and thereby to…

Woe to those - Is 5-20

Kerby Anderson Thirty years ago, Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote a landmark essay “Defining Deviancy Down.” In case you are not familiar with him, Moynihan was an educator, counselor to the president, ambassador, diplomat, and four-term US senator from New York. He was a well-respected leader in the Democratic party but was also willing to challenge programs and policies he thought were detrimental. When he wrote his essay, the rise in crime, the breakdown of the family, and even the rise…

Biden - angry pointing finger

Kerby Anderson You may have noticed when someone criticizes you, often they are criticizing you for their own behavior. Sigmund Freud described this as “projection.” Another person “projects” their own motives or behaviors on you as a way of coping with their own problems. We also see this in the political world, which is why on radio I often attribute many of the political comments these days to projection. Politicians are often guilty of condemning their opponent’s behavior when they…

Presidential Election 1824

Kerby Anderson I have suggested that this year might be the year of the “third party.” To understand the impact of third-party candidates, let’s review their history and talk about how they have affected presidential elections. When John Quincy Adams ran against Andrew Jackson in 1824, America was still a multi-party system. The Reform candidate William Crawford and Southern Democrat Henry Clay cost Jackson electoral votes in key states. Once in American history, a third party won the White House….

Pro-Hamas protesters block road and bridge

Kerby Anderson Anti-Israel demonstrators have blocked traffic and bridges in many major cities across the country. Climate activists in other countries have also blocked traffic and vandalized priceless paintings and public monuments. These actions have created a societal problem we can no longer ignore. Tal Fortgang argues that “Blocking the Road is Civil Terrorism.” Whether or not you accept his characterization of these tactics, you will have to admit the problem is getting worse, and poses a threat to decent,…
