It’s a wonderful time of the year.

Preserve this precious heritage

 

 

One Hundred Percent American

By Ralph Linton in The American Mercury (volume 40, 1937, pages 427-29)

 

There can be no question about the average American’s Americanism or his desire to preserve this precious heritage at all costs. Nevertheless, some insidious foreign ideas have already wormed their way into his civilization without his realizing what was going on. Thus dawn finds the unsuspecting patriot garbed in pajamas, a garment of East Indian origin; and lying in a bed … [more]

He was too stuck up

 

Dear editor:

When someone is lying and doing a bunch of crooked stuff and you know they’re lying and doing a bunch of crooked stuff and you’re OK with them lying and doing a bunch of crooked stuff, well, don’t expect a great outcome.

Hillary — maybe that’s “what happened.” Why didn’t the NFL players go to the White House while the first black POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama, was there for eight years? Could it be they knew he … [more]

Because a few inky wretches say so

 

Dear editor,

Back in the late 1960s, Simon and Garfunkel sang the question, “What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson?” In 2017, that simple question is answered week after week, as the same ilky rabble of letter writers, merry contrarians all, stain these pages with their regressive nonsense.

Murderer. Killer. Socialist. Muslim. Mexican. Terrorist. There’s not much else in their tiny little lexicons, so they fill the gaps with endless quotes from the Christian Bible, or by quoting professional bible-thumpers … [more]

Never been more proud

 

Kudos for Trump’s speech

 

Dear editor:

After President Donald Trump gave his remarkably great speech to the United Nations, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “In over 30 years in my experience with the U.N., I never heard a bolder or more courageous speech.”

Many well-respected conservative leaders praised that speech as being the most impressive speech of his presidency! Of course, his enemies on the far left side hated everything about it as they always do (actually … [more]

Very disappointed

 

Disappointing performance

 

Dear editor:

I know our Arkansas congressional representative, Bruce Westerman, and his colleague, Sen. Tom Cotton, don’t pay much attention to their average constituents, and I don’t fault them for that. They have more important things to do.

However, I am not an average constituent. My family owns numerous successful businesses and we supported both of these two in previous elections, both by strongly encouraging our employees to vote for them, and more importantly, by making … [more]

Why We Are on Hunger Strike in Israel’s Prisons

By Marwan_Barghouti, April 16, 2017

 

HADARIM PRISON, Israel — Having spent the last 15 years in an Israeli prison, I have been both a witness to and a victim of Israel’s illegal system of mass arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners. After exhausting all other options, I decided there was no choice but to resist these abuses by going on a hunger strike.

Some 1,000 Palestinian prisoners have … [more]
