Border Skirmishes

By Charlie Johnston A Terrible Resolve After watching large segments of Donald Trump’s massive rallies in Minneapolis and Lake Charles the last two nights, I am now persuaded that Democrats have made a HUGE mistake in their attempt to impeach him.

10,000 Islands of Faith

By Charlie Johnston I am saddened by the trajectory of the world. Throughout my life, I have struggled to find ways of mitigating the consequences of the ever-growing disorder and malice that engulfs us.
