By Charlie Johnston I spent a good chunk of last Sunday meandering in the mountains, with an hour in contemplation and prayer at the foot of Mt. Meeker. I actually wrote a lot last week – but I’ll deal with that another time. People frequently call to ask me if this is it. Well, it […]Read More The Time for Choosing is at Hand
By Charlie Johnston If you have been driving long enough, you have probably had a rock hit your windshield and make a small crack – a crack that, over time, starts creeping across the window. Every week or so, you notice it has gone a little farther. When it grows into a bona fide fracture, […]Read More Thoughts as the City of Man Topples
By Charlie Johnston Over a decade ago I was running two Congressional campaigns at opposite ends of the state. I would bounce back and forth. On a Monday morning when I was opening a weekly meeting at the western one, I was furious at some things that had been bobbled over the weekend – several […]Read More Just a Couple of Things…
By Charlie Johnston I have been struggling to get a handle on this business, writing a long, fairly complex piece.

Ronald Reagan insisted that we would attain “peace through strength.” When he did so, the left and the media all accused him of being a warmonger – and shrieked that we were “all going to die.” Any […]Read More Opening Skirmishes
By Charlie Johnston Contemplating this article, there were several marvelous titles that came to mind. It could have been the Seinfeld Impeachment. As you remember, Seinfeld was famously called a show about nothing – sort of like this impeachment, where the only actual fact witness the Democrats could come up with said that Trump said […]Read More The Pyrrhic Impeachment
By Charlie Johnston Things are speeding up yet again. The runaway train our culture, politics and formal religion has become shows no sign of applying the brakes in time to avoid a crash. If it is now unlikely that anyone driving this dysfunctional train can get things back under stable control, panic can cause those […]Read More Leaving the Shire
By Charlie Johnston The title to this piece is a shout-out to our French readers. It means the same thing as the English idiom, “The die is cast,” though I think the literal translation of the French provides a more vivid and clear picture than the English idiom. Literally, the French idiom says “The bets […]Read More Les Jeux Sont Faits
By Charlie Johnston The establishment media has carefully avoided giving any coverage to the preliminary hearing in the criminal case the California Atty. Gen.’s office brought against David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt in their undercover journalism project to reveal Planned Parenthood (PP) and other abortion outlets sale of the organs of aborted babies for profit.
