By Charlie Johnston Thursday was the Feast Day of the Visitation. It was on this occasion that Mary spoke the Magnificat (Luke 1:46-55) to her cousin, Elizabeth. It is my favorite prayer. It resonates in the depths of my heart. In most translations, it begins, “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord…” In a […]Read More To Magnify the Lord
By Charlie Johnston It is ironic that the most smugly self-righteous generation in our nation’s history will likely be looked at with revulsion by future generations for having knowingly perpetrated one of the great atrocities of history. Despite science proving that a child is fully human from the moment of conception, this generation insists on […]Read More Short Takes: The Battle for Life, an Early Feminist and…Go Chiefs!
By Charlie Johnston Thursday’s Congressional hearing with disgraced FBI Agent Peter Strzok was both frightening and revealing. The script for it could have been written by William Peter Blatty. Strzok was defiant and unapologetically evil, mockingly calling it patriotism. Equally chilling were the legion of Democrats who cheered him on and wished they could give […]Read More The Dragon Prances
By Charlie Johnston Last Thursday I wrote that Rudy Giuliani’s lengthy interview with Sean Hannity on Wednesday night was the kickoff of the serious counter-attack by the Trump administration against the serial assaults of the Deep State’s coup attempt – that now the conspirators were going to be shocked to find themselves held to account […]Read More Wheels Coming off the Mueller Train

This is the beginning of President Trump’s serious assault on the Deep State. This, I think, may well be the month when […]Read More Giuliani Launches Real Trump Counter-Attack
By Charlie Johnston No matter what Robert Mueller dredges up, I will stand with Donald Trump and the legitimately elected government. It wasn’t always that way. Two years ago, I opposed Trump; a year and a half ago, I regarded him with disdain; now I stand foursquare behind him, warts and all. That is because […]Read More On the Bank of the Rubicon – Short Takes
By Charlie Johnston Donald Trump was not my first choice for president. Neither was he my second choice, nor even my third. The only reason I took him seriously at all was because he was the enthusiastic first choice of a man in the Midwest whose judgment I much respect and whom I deeply admire.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment Friday of 13 Russian nationals was silly, dangerous, and a transparent effort to gain some leverage for a safe exit strategy from the sham that has been the Russian collusion investigation. To explain why, I decided to write this in the form of an analytical memo like those I used […]Read More An Indictment About Nothing – Except Leverage
