TUESDAY through FRIDAY, December 28 through 31, 2021ON THIS, THE LAST DAY OF A DISAPPOINTING AND WORRISOME AMERICAN 2021,
urge my readers to find and study two excellent monologues presented by
Ben Domenech on his 7 PM Fox News show...on December 28 and December
The first is an analysis of the deep Rot developing in this nation domestically.
second is an analysis of the existential Threat now posed by China and
by the domestic business fellow-travelers who will support even
treachery on behalf of our prime Enemy for profit.
None of this is hyperbole. WAKE UP...NOW AND IN THE ELECTIONS OF 2022 AND 2024.

IN THE PAST DECADES OF RAMPANT AND DEADLY SOUTHERN STATE RACISM,
I created a diagnosis to describe it: FOCAL IDIOPATHIC IDIOCY.
Focal because it was targeted toward all Blacks and only Blacks.
Idiopathic because there appeared to be no known cause.
Idiocy...a well-known condition that appears to becoming pandemic in our younger generations.
Unfortunately, here is a young person, ordinarily of great talent, who has contracted the disease.
See the attached interview.
WHILE THE DESPERATE DEMOCRATS AND THEIR LEFTIST OVERSEERS
try to expunge from the memories of 70 million voters the corruption and probable criminality of the 2020 election,
including the use of the "January 6 investigations", the relevant investigations move forward.
See two articles offered in the October 2021 Edition of IMPRIMIS (Hillsdale.edu).
• "Is Ensuring Election Integrity Anti-Democratic?", by John R. Lott, Jr.; and
• "'Zuckerbucks' And The 2020 Election," by Mollie Hemingway.

I AM NOT AN EXPERT ON VLADIMIR PUTIN...
but with my many decades of study and immersion in Human Nature, I can offer this opinion.
President Putin is not bluffing or posturing at this time regarding Ukraine - or what's left of it.
He doesn't have to. What he is doing is to draw a Line for himself and for the Russian People;
Thus far and no farther for the West in its encirclement of Russia - all 9 Time Zones of it.
See: "Putin To The West: It Is Not US Who Threaten Anyone", by V. Isachenkov, AP (in The Day December 23, 2021).
Besides always wanting to be Relevant in affairs of the World, Mr. Putin is a True Russian...an integrated and proud species.
JUSTICE, OR APPEASING THE PUBLIC?
have never been inclined to question the verdict of a jury in a
criminal trial (except when witnessing the misfeasance of Judge Ito in
the O.J.Simpson trial).
But given the Public tenor of the times, that may have to change.

JUST SO YOU KNOW.
And who are getting hurt the most? YUP, YOU BET!
THE 1960'S WERE AS BAD FOR THIS COUNTRY AS WERE THE 1860'S.
The 1860's gave us the Civil War followed by 100 years of segregation and division.
The 1960's have given us 50 years of stupidity and division in large segments of our citizenry...
50 years of schism among Roman Catholics after the premature death of
Pope John XXIII, the accession of the misguided and reactionary Pope
Paul VI, and the continuing attacks on the necessary reforms of Vatican
See: "Pope Doubles Down On Quashing Old Latin Mass With New Limits" (in The Day December 19, 2021).
Pope Francis may be grasping the importance of revitalizing the
deliberations and actions of Vatican II if he wants to avoid a
permanent fracture of the Church. And it will take cracking some
heads in the Curia.
"WHY MENTAL HEALTH SHOULD BE TAUGHT IN CONNECTICUT SCHOOLS", by Jordana Castelli,
(in ctmirror.org, December 17, 2021).
This is a well-founded and well-articulated call for help. But it is not easily addressed or implemented.
And in the process, we must always remember the foundational tenet of medical care:
"PRIMUM NON NOCERE; FIRST DO NO HARM".
First, the requirement to establish a DIAGNOSIS! If all you offer
is " I have a pain", all you will get is: "Take two aspirin and call
your doctor in the morning".
• In addressing
particularly a Mental Pain, beware of opening Pandora's Box and being
unable to deal with its contents.
• Young people
of the last two or three generations have experienced a lot of mental
pain. Young people of prior generations did not. Why?
Committed, supportive parents;
A moral / ethical and nurturing society;
A school system that Taught rather than postured - and that held that Actions Have Consequences;
Media" that consisted of radio and movies that were actually monitored
for content...and "socializing" that actually involved physically
meeting and conversing with others.
The only "illicit drugs" even vaguely considered were cigarettes and beer.
A sense of Self and of Responsibility to family that at least balanced the childhood pressure to "go along to get along".
Do You Want To Open That Pandora's Box?

THIS ISSUE IS THE HEIGHT AND DEPTH OF POLITICS DISTORTING A VITAL PUBLIC HEALTH MATTER.
bleating of some Republican spokesmen on this subject may trend the
conversion of an electoral silk purse into a sow's ear. Republicans are
good at that.
FREQUENT FLIERS IN THIS RR SECTION WILL KNOW THAT I REGULARLY RELY ON THE WALL STREET JOURNAL AS A SOURCE OF WELL-RESEARCHED AND ARTICULATED FACTS AND OPINIONS.
This, notwithstanding the fact that I have through the decades agreed with its editorial content less than 50% of the time.
Now comes another reason for our sometime disconnect...if anybody cares: its "Never Trump" posture.
it be that through decades the WSJ has had to deal in business with a
man who is much less the hypocrite than their usual business-types?
Nevertheless, here are two recent articles that highlight the State of the Union and the State of International Affairs.
See: "Jussie Smollett's Enablers Weren't His Friends", by Holman w. Jenkins, Jr. (WSJ December 18-19, 2021, Opinion, p19). Of course, just like a tic, Mr. Jenkins has to write "Mr. Trump's flagrant lying, including about the 2020 election..."
That's not the way 70 million voters see it - and are waiting for the
other shoe to fall. But he accurately diagnoses a vast number of
public and political and media people as LIARS. Add that to the rampant
STUPIDITY, and that is quite a "State of the Union".
Meanwhile, in the rest of the world, Putin is successfully playing our fearless leaders with their spineless postures.
See: "Vladimir Putin Names His Price" (WSJ Editorial, ibid, pA18).
Don't "Stop The World...." I'm on 'til the last stop.
FRIDAY, December 17, 2021"IN A DEMOCRACY, THE PEOPLE ALWAYS GET WHAT THEY DESERVE".
This truism has been around for a long time. It continues to be true.
See: "Blame Voters for The Crime Wave", by Daniel Henninger (in WSJ December 16, 2021, Opinion, pA19).
a more global and historical scale, review an excellent summary of the
20th and 21st centuries from the eyes and experiences of Henry
Kissinger: "The Inevitability of Tragedy: Henry Kissinger And His World",
by Barry Gewen. (W.W. Norton and Co., 2020). An elegy to the
limitations of Human Nature, its sub-title could be "We Never Learn".
One of many lessons to be stressed from this work, very applicable to what is going on in America now, is that
can produce tyranny. The most recent and terrible example was Hitler's
Nazi Germany, conceived, born and suckled out of Weimar Republic

dastardly national scheme to rob us of our freedoms with COVID-19
restrictions...as the numbers of cases and deaths continue to
mount...reliable scientific findings continue to support logical
See: "Pfizer Booster Eases Risk From Omicron, Israeli Study Says", by Dov Lieber (WSJ December 13, 2021, U.S. News, pA6). "A
booster shot...provides good protection against severe illness from the
Omicron variant, while those without a third shot are highly
vulnerable, according to a new Israeli study."

economic and unthinking bureaucratic pressures.
And so far the hurting Public can only mount a weak "Wha Hoppen?"

being imposed on the Average American as a result of reckless national

The alternative is anarchy and self-help.

prison staff, parole boards and parole officers Must do their jobs
Not only that. One of the most destructive
actions that society was talked into by Senator Ted Kennedy in the
1960's was to close mental hospitals and then to provide no
alternatives, either medical or social. What cynicism.

REPUBLICANS AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY: WHITHER OR WITHER?
See my Rapid Response offering for December 1-3, 2021, RR#2 and the referenced article.
about a dozen Republican star legislators in the Senate and the House,
I can't distinguish most of the others from the entire current crop of
politicians whom I find entirely self-serving - much more than in past
Now see the Interview with Norman Podhoretz, by Barton Swaim, published in the WSJ December 11-12, 2021, Opinion, pA15. He also has trouble defining the American Right.
with regard to the Economy, which has always been Republicans' strong
suit, a friend well-versed in economic theory and fact offers this:
of church and state and separation of money and state. Monetary policy
should NOT be set by the government. It should be set by the market and
based on gold...or by any other thing that cannot be created or
destroyed by homo sapiens. Bitcoin comes close until the electricity is
turned off. Liberty is freedom of individual responsibility. It is NOT
freedom from individual responsibility. As it is now, politicians use
monetary policy to increase government and its (their) power at the
expense of the people. There's a name for that: corruption."
More recently this has been including some "Republican" as well as Democratic politicians.
THE REPUBLICAN PART MUST OFFER A CLEAR ALTERNATIVE TO THE CORRUPTION AND ANTI-AMERICANISM ALL AROUND US.
Meanwhile, personally I hold tightly to the advice of the worldly Saint Augustine:
"Pray as if it all depends on God.
Work as if it all depends on You."
AS I WAS SAYING...
WEDNESDAY through FRIDAY, December 8 through 10, 2021DO YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE GETTING POORER? YOU ARE.
I have no personal education or training in the field of Economics. But at my age, I do have experience:
the Great Depression, the later 1970's, 1987, 2008.
for at least the last year I have been expressing concern in this
section about the actions of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell -
specifically about very low interest rates and the likelihood of that
producing inflation - and then perhaps a Recession / Depression.
here we are. And it turns out that the inflation rate we are now
experiencing is nowhere near the CPI rate of 6.7% touted by this
administration. It is much higher, as we are all experiencing.
See the Tucker Carlson show aired on Fox News on Friday evening, Dec. 10. Illuminating and infuriating.
So - Are you fed up yet with the incompetence and infidelity that this administration is delivering to the People?

TO PARAPHRASE THE POET: "HOW DO I DESPISE THEE: LET ME COUNT THE WAYS".
I despise the Teachers' Unions and also the classroom teachers who have given up their professionalism to "go along".
See: "Why I'm Backing Charter Schools", by Michael R. Bloomberg (in WSJ December 2, 2021, Opinion, p A19).
I come to this position over decades of following public school "education". See my web site section entitled:
"Public School Politics'.
despise our current Federal Government, as distinguished from prior
effective and responsive governments under the more recent presidencies
of T. Roosevelt, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, Reagan, G. Bush and D.Trump.
See: "Omicron Reinfects Government", by Daniel Henninger (in WSJ December 2, 2021, Opinion, A 17).
I despise the "Leftists" and the fellow-travelling Democrats and their genetically Mindless rank-and-file.
See the Statement by Dr. Oz, recently announced candidate for U.S. Senate from Pennsylvania.
In offering this piece, I first looked up the difference between "despise" and "hate".
Hate includes malice. I hate no one. But the above speaks for itself.
CHANUKAH (HANUKKAH), THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS, IS BEING CELEBRATED NOW.
Although not Jewish, I a Christian have always considered the Jewish People my older siblings.
How can it be otherwise, by History and by Morality?
We all await the Coming of the Messiah - sooner rather than later, given the state of the world.
And whether it is the first Coming or the second Coming, we pray for that Coming.
we live within the confines and potential of our humanity. We are
reminded of those limitations by a poignant article: "The Roots Of Resilience",

anti-Semitic attack in U.S. history occurred in 2018, many years after

taking over Congress in 2022 and the White House in 2024.

of the Party, despite the fact that they all believe the same basic
moral and political principles. This was only worsened by the antics of
the "Never Trumpers" while President Trump spent his entire four yours

Republicans Must get their message Right this time in time for the 2022
and 2024 elections. Nothing less than the viability of this Nation for

WHAT HAPPENED TO "THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH?"
It still can be found coming from common citizens juries in Courts of Law.
But the Mainstream has bastardized it. This is a common first step in the march to tyranny. Check out Nazi Germany.
Leftwing media are merchants of lies, half-truths, and deception… Their
true objective is NOT to report the news but push their radical agenda.
My name is Brent Bozell,

is the only conservative organization dedicated to exposing the radical
Left-wing agenda in the media.

that will bankrupt our nation, chip away at the Second Amendment, and

Staging a fake racist stunt against a GOP gubernatorial candidate:
Members of the “Lincoln Project” staged a photo op in front of Glenn
Youngkin’s campaign bus, holding tiki torches and pretending to be
racist supporters of the GOP candidate. The story was PROVEN fake and
CNN continued to support the stunt in any way.

Attempting to put Kyle Rittenhouse behind bars: It’s no secret the

Rittenhouse and destroy this young man’s life. The judge even barred
MSNBC from the courtroom when they followed the jury’s bus back to

Covering up a rape in order to protect Woke educators: A father
attended a school board meeting in Loudoun county Virginia, demanding
answers and accountability for his daughter being raped by a
“non-binary” boy wearing a skirt. Instead of answers, this man was
arrested and now the FBI is monitoring parents who are involved in
their child’s education.
The media decided to side with the Loudoun county school officials and helped cover up the rape story.
is a disgusting new low for the Fake News media. Help the Media
Research Center spread the TRUTH about stories like this by donating
$10, $50, $100, $250, or more here >>>
Defending Anthony Fauci’s lies to Congress: Fauci lied to Congress and
MSNBC, CNN, NBC, the New York Times, and more all continued to defend
him. This man needs to be fired for his lies to the American people.
the Media Research Center hold LIARS like Anthony Fauci by sharing the
truth! Donate $10, $50, $100, $250 or more here >>>
Protecting Joe Biden’s failing Presidency: Biased news anchors and
reporters are doing everything possible to keep Biden in power. They
are covering up his failures in Afghanistan, inflation, huge deficits,
Why am I sharing these with you? Because they are only the tip of the iceberg.
Fake News media is one of the greatest threats to our Republic, to our
constitution, to our culture, and to the principles of liberty.

aggressive and distribute lies through new mediums such as social
I am asking you to invest in the Media Research Center and help us combat Fake News media.
Here is how MRC is FIGHTING BACK!
MRC records all Fake News media outlets to identify lies, half-truths,
and lies of omission. In fact, we have over 800,000 hours of recorded
video and audio from TV, radio, and podcasts.
We use this content to expose the truth and show everyday Americans how
the Fake News media is using their influence to enact socialism,
advocate for Critical Race Theory, and sabotage conservatives.
MRC is combatting online censorship by building MASSIVE social media
pages to distribute the truth. I am proud to report MRC’s social media
team has several MILLION followers and we reach millions of Americans
each week with our message.
Thank you for everything, Friend.
