The Big White Elephant is on life support but not for much longer. Airbus Industries, its parent EADS and the governments who continue to subsidize its production can no longer justify its continuity at the expense of the European tax payer. A rapidly shrinking customer base and less than a hand full of customers who […]

On December 7, 1941, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. As one ship sat burning in the harbor, its anti-aircraft guns blazing at the incoming waves of planes, a chaplain reportedly began assisting the gunners, and was heard to shout, “Praise the Lord, and pass the ammunition!” This phrase was turned into a popular patriotic song […]

What would you do if a topless bar-adult theater complex opened across the street from your church or Christian school? If your community were hit with a wave of pornographic materials, which institution should take the lead in campaigning against it?

Two decades ago, I came across a remarkable mimeographed manuscript, “The Fabian Transmission Belt.” The author was a member of a tightly disciplined religious order and the daughter of a prominent U.S. Senator.

It’s yours if you can locate a buyer for two acres of land in Southaven, Mississippi — 4.7 miles south of Graceland. Elvis country! If you know someone in Memphis who is looking for a low-cost property, let him know. If I sell it to this person, I’ll pay you $5,000. Maybe you have a […]

My Favorite Ali Recollection

Written by Gary North on June 4, 2016

Muhammed Ali has died at age 74. I am 74. He loomed large when I came to adulthood. He was the most famous athlete on earth after he beat Sonny Liston in 1964. He was the greatest fighter of my generation, as he never tired of reminding us. He was also the greatest self-promoter in […]

It is not easy for me to get inside the mind of a Democrat, but I will try. First, I would be ready to stick it hard to the big New York banks for what they did leading up to 2008-10. Everyone is ready to do this. Why should Democrats not be on this bandwagon? […]
