    Ep. 745: Virginia First

    Did the Puritans and Pilgrims make America? Our popular imagination seems to think so, but what about Virginia? G.K. Chesterton wrote this interesting piece in 1920 about the Virginia origins of the United States.

    Ep. 744: The Lincoln Myth as "Fact"?

    Ep. 744: The Lincoln Myth as "Fact"?

    Could the Lincoln Myth save America? No, but that doesn't stop some conservatives and libertarians from pushing such rubbish. If you follow the Lincoln Myth to its logical conclusion, you end up with the 1619 Project. Or the left's war on culture. Or Ty Seidule. In other words, you get destructive progressivism.

    Ep. 743: The Left's War On Culture

    Ep. 743: The Left's War On Culture

    Attacks on Confederate monuments, like the beautiful reconciliation monument in Arlington National Cemetery, are an assault on culture. They would argue against this position, but it shows you the true barbarism of these people. They have no culture and despise tradition and therefore must eliminate anything they disagree with. This is American Leninism.

    Ep. 742: Were the Anti-Federalists Right about the Supreme Court?

    Ep. 742: Were the Anti-Federalists Right about the Supreme Court?

    In a shocking essay, progressive Jamelle Bouie argues that the Anti-Federalists were right about the Supreme Court. This is an amazing admission for a progressive because their entire agenda would not have been possible without an over-powerful federal court system. Bouie event quotes Brutus, but one has to wonder if he would have argued this position if the Court was 7-2 in favor of the Left. Probably not.

    Ep. 741: DeSantis for President?

    Ep. 741: DeSantis for President?

    When National Review thinks a candidate would be a good president, conservatives should pause. Ron DeSantis appears to be one of the front runners for the Republican nomination in 2024, but would he be a better governor than president?

    The Yankee Origins of Thanksgiving

    The Yankee Origins of Thanksgiving

    Our modern Thanksgiving holiday was born in New England. This may not be news, but the way it became a "national" holiday might surprise you, particularly when you know that the South resisted Thanksgiving precisely because it was a New England holiday created to oppose Christmas.
