On June 23, Ralph Stanley died. He was 89. He was the last of the founders of bluegrass music. This is an American invention, named after the group that backed up Bill Monroe, the Bluegrass Boys. Monroe’s music was “old timey” until the arrival of Earl Scruggs, who revolutionized banjo picking. Scruggs joined the Bluegrass […]

Connect the Dots: Omar Mateen’s Taliban Father

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016

omar-mateen

The whole story of the Orlando shooting seems a little . . . how should I say it? . . . strange. The shooter worked for nine years for a security firm that is under contract with the Department of Homeland Security. Background checks? “No problem!” His father is well-connected. Way up high connected. U.S. […]

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016

Let us go back forty years. Here is one of the greatest scenes in the history of the movies. Howard Beale is the presumptive Republican candidate for President of the United States.

Well over half a century ago, I became a Bobby Fisher fan. He was asked at age 15 what he loved about chess. He answered: “I love to see them squirm.” Today, I love to see the mainstream media squirm about Trump. In response to the Orlando massacres by a Muslim terrorist, President Obama went […]

The Case for Patience

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016

patience

One of the truly discouraging things for every businessman or minister to deal with is the slowness of all progress within his organization. A man who is pioneering a particular idea or technology believes that his product is so unique, so beneficial, and so marketable that buyers or contributors will line up to buy it. […]

Should We Legislate Immorality?

Written by Gary North on June 18, 2016

legislation

“You can’t legislate morality!” How many times have you heard that one? Too many, I’ll bet. Have you ever sat down and thought through the implications of this humanist slogan? Does anyone really know what it means? We all know how it’s used: to try to reduce support for a proposed law that the complainer […]

What If the FBI Delays Its Announcement to January 21?

Written by Gary North on June 11, 2016

comey

James Comey holds all the cards. He can make the decision regarding the correct time to recommend the indictment or non-indictment of Mrs. Clinton. This puts him 100% in charge. Not 50%. Not 75%. Obama has now gone kissy-face with Clinton. This is seen by a lot of commentators as a guarantee that the Justice […]
