Life in Abundance

By Charlie Johnston On September 20, 2000, Special Counsel Robert Ray wrapped up the Whitewater investigation into the Clintons by concluding that there was insufficient evidence to prove to a jury beyond a reasonable doubt that the Clintons had knowingly violated the law. The media, of course, touted it as an exoneration of the Clintons. […]

Our First Third World Election

By Charlie Johnston When Donald Trump was leading in the big “toss-up” states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia and North Carolina last night, all run by Democrats, suddenly, at almost the same time, the states quit counting votes.

Covid, Priests and Squirrels

By Charlie Johnston The Covid Virus is like a very weak predator which is murderously aggressive, preying ruthlessly on the weak, slow-moving immune systems of the old and vulnerable while barely bothering with the faster-moving systems of the young and healthy. For people 18 and under, the common flu is almost 30 times (30 times!) […]
