    April 18, 2016 | William Flax
    Forgive my vanity in suggesting the best way for Donald Trump to counter the negatives that the Leftist media & globalist business interests appear bent on exploiting, to defeat his candidacy in November. But there is a relatively simple way for him to accomplish several goals with one relatively simple stroke; several goals simply by the effective use of program length television & radio. Consider the false narrative being promoted by various business groups, insistent on an imagined need for their version of both "free trade" & "liberal immigration" policy; a false narrative being given great currency in the media....
  • Trump: Metaphor For American Conservatism

    With a few bold stokes of historic significance, Trump has single-handedly broken the hold that "politically correct" bullies have long exerted over the vast bulk of those euphemistically described as "public servants." Thanks to Trump, it may never again be quite so easy to intimidate dissent in America. With a few unpleasant, yet effective, strokes on the platform in Presidential debates, Trump has easily derailed the plans of political bullies & the incredibly wealthy users of those political bullies, who were trying to force the nomination of another globalist, Neocon influenced, candidate on the Republican Party; clearly demonstrating the tactical...

    There is no real litmus test for Conservatism; as should be obvious to anyone on brief reflection. Conservatism is--and always has been, as the term connotes--about preserving what one considers important, in a social, cultural, historic & genetic heritage. One person may be more focused on one aspect, another on another. There is no natural law that demands that all have the same focus--indeed, the notion flies in the face of the concept that man is Blessed with Free Will; with freedom to decide priorities--and, of course, bear the consequences. Conservatism is about preserving social--both cultural & material, as well...
  • A "Gift" That Keeps On Taking

    Almost everyone has heard the phrase, "a gift that keeps on giving"; a reference to a charitable undertaking that encourages beneficiaries in the direction of self-reliance & personal responsibility. Such a gift is likely to involve recognition of important aspects of human nature--a concept or concepts that encourage individuals to identify & employ actual talents--that inspire beneficiaries to solve real problems, rather than look to others to solve those problems for them.
  • Compassion Or Compulsion--Egalitarian Argument Analyzed

    Truth Based Logic ^ | July 1, 2013 | William Flax
    Egalitarian rhetoric, once largely confined to revolutionary movements, such as French Jacobins & Marxist Communists, now appears accepted by many in the political & social mainstream. Thus, there is scarcely a ripple among affluent viewers when major "Liberal" broadcast media air programs discussing the "need" & methods to "narrow a gap between the rich & poor," despite the unspoken, yet obvious, implications. Thus a former American President, who claimed to be a "Compassionate Conservative," voiced a similar objective, with scarce notice in a generally hostile media, which had no problem in mislabeling him & the like-minded, as "right wing." The...

    Truth Based Logic ^ | April, 2013 | William Flax
    We would suggest that it is impossible to read the United States' Constitution through, fully in context, and not see that any major implications beyond the clear specifics set down, clearly favor a limitation on, rather than an extension of, the specific functions ("powers") granted to the Federal Government. While this may be counter to what many of you have been taught by theorists in contemporary American education--or promoted by a partisan & unobjective media--we will demonstrate our point with specific reference to Article I, Sections 8, where most of the actual functions entrusted to Congress, are set forth; Section...

    Most readers are aware of the concepts of compounding interest & compounding growth rates; concepts fundamental to analysis of portfolio formation, economic growth & capital building. . . . But that is only an illustration of a dynamic concept--the long term effect of a compounding trend, feeding upon itself--which is our subject. This is not about thrift, frugality, providence & positive investment. It is about the absolute antithesis of provident behavior; the consistent, even accelerating, trends that are dismantling the social infra-structure, which once enabled thrift, frugality, providence & constructive behavior, to build an ever better & more satisfying life...

    While the present Administration ignores both Washington's wise counsel & his clear understanding of male psychology, President Obama's Secretary of Defense, denies both the role of Congress, the Chivalric Code & all human experience in a bizarre January order for all branches of the Armed Forces to place women in combat units by 2016.

    Can The Republican Party Yet Serve Conservative Purpose? The answer depends on whether we can resolve questions of purpose, priority & tactics, with far more clarity than we have in the last twenty-one years. Politics have always been about winning & the art of the possible; but to the true Conservative (which in the American context has always involved a major libertarian component), "winning" means preservation of a Constitutional heritage, never merely electing people with a particular label, nor those primarily identified with a single cause or the demands of any special interest. Winning is about preserving the multi-generational...

    From a Conservative perspective, the election, November 6th, was a disaster. This American, as literally tens of millions of others, spent several days in near despondency, not only over the result, but over a successful methodology employed to distract, undermine, smear & intimidate, to provide victory to a man whose whole adult life has been an exercise in disrespect for our principles, customs, heritage & peoples. Yet the fog cleared, and with it any doubt about the road ahead.

    From Virtual Endorsement To Active Support Our "virtual" endorsement was primarily premised upon two concepts: 1. The critical need to arrest the loss of Liberty, heritage & the remaining fruits of eight generations' labor. 2. The reality of Gov. Romney's demonstrated ability as a "problem solver"--the implied ability to look at all aspects of a situation. The suggestion was that we could move Romney to the right by working on his strengths; by polite, patient & persistent appeal for him to use that perceptual ability, employed to succeed in business & in saving the Winter Olympics, a decade ago,...

    History is replete with examples: Politicians tend to follow popular trends, rather than lead. To the extent that segments of the public can be pushed in our direction, we increase constructive pressure on all candidates, who are not compulsion driven ideologues, to be more conservative. The Reagan era is a case in point; the reverse was true in the leftward shift of many formerly conservative Democrats in the early "New Deal." This does not imply lack of personal involvement. Our obvious interest has led to careful consideration of the merits, deficiencies & reasonable possibilities related to each candidate. While Governor...

    To any American, dedicated to the promise of the Founders to secure the "Blessings of Liberty" to their posterity, a surrender of what those brave men achieved on the battlefield can never be acceptable. But that is not the only fundamental flaw in the Cousins "argument." There is an implied premise, in the claim that we must have World Government to prevent the Nations of the world from savaging one another, that there is no effective alternative, or alternatively that a World Government would be more likely to prevent the horrors of modern war than would, for example, the traditional...

    In recent weeks, there has been some discussion over how to handle the soaring public debt of the United States; how that debt--its extent & the method by which it is managed--affects the credit worthiness of the United States & the likelihood of default on that debt; finally, the effect of such phenomena on the future economic well being of the people of the United States.

    The Founding Fathers established a gold standard, . . They specifically forbad the States (Constitution, Article I, Sec. 10) from making anything but gold or silver an acceptable medium for the discharge of debt. Comparing the present fiat "dollar's" performance against gold, then, is both fair & particularly American. In a separate Addendum, "Capital Gains Tax," to our February, 2009 Feature on "The Function of Money," we calculated that at an $860 an ounce price, the fiat dollar had depreciated at a compound rate of 4.18% per year against gold over the then 75 years since Roosevelt had confiscated America's...

    America, as synonymous with the people who created the Federal Union known as the United States of America, was born to a gold standard; was intended, always, to remain on a gold standard! No reading of Article I, Section 10, of the Constitution, coupled with key provisions of Article I, Section 8, can lend itself to any other interpretation. The first paragraph of Section 10 reads in relevant part: No State shall . . . make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.Note, there is no exception provided.

    By any rational or civilized standard, John Maynard Keynes was a totally amoral scoundrel. Keynes At Harvard, a well documented study by Zygmund Dobbs, first published by Archibald Roosevelt's Veritas Foundation (Conservative Harvard Alumni) in 1962, thoroughly exposed Keynes as a Fabian Socialist sociopath, deliberately seeking to undermine free market Capitalism. Dobbs also showed Keynes to be a notorious homosexual pedophile, who predated NAMBLA, advising other wealthy & depraved British Leftists where, in the third world, they might expect the best price for "bed & boy."

Now with the new President, Democratic Congressional leadership, and the Left leaning media establishment all screaming for more and more expensive extravagance and waste, in the name of economic stimulus, it is a great benefit that the classic expose' of Lord Keynes, the Fabian Socialist guru behind the fatuous economics of Governmental waste as a solution to economic problems, has been republished as an e-book.

    The Obama response to any discussion of his involvement with a former Weatherman leader, engaged in radical revolutionary tactics in the 1960s, has been that he (Obama) was only eight years old at the time of the Ayers involvement in acts of overt sedition, and that he has since denounced those actions. This, of course, is irrelevant to the issue of whether or not Obama and Ayers share a common Marxist ideology--a common vision of a new monolithic totalitarian Socialist America. Ayers may have changed his tactics, that does not mean that he has changed his goals. When Lenin and...

    The saddest thing about the present political campaign is the demonstration of abysmal ignorance of the Constitution, the dynamics of social & economic interaction, and the realities of human nature, by most candidates for Federal Office. Let me illustrate by looking at Senator Obama's stated views: Take the subject of Federal involvement with civilian education. Consider what he has said and what he has not said. You have not heard Obama even try to explain what in the Constitution, he was sworn to uphold, authorizes any Federal Role in Education. Yet he discusses a Federal Role as though there was...

    With renewed controversy over the nature & extent of any proper Governmental role in the regulation of economic decisions that influence or control commercial activity, some comments are in order. Unfortunately, a background in which America may be on the cusp of economic chaos, is not a time when sober & reflective analysis is the "order of the day." The recent panic in Washington has set a tone both here and abroad; and while the focus there, notwithstanding the imposition of new "regulations" in financial markets, has been primarily on creating more liquidity by "appropriating" new funds out of fiat...

    Much has been made of Senator Obama's post-collegiate experience as a "Community Organizer" in Black (Negro) areas of the vast Chicago Southside.

The idea of an Ivy League College boy coming, full of the Leftwing theories & notions so popular in certain Colleges and Universities in post McKinley America, to tell those living in a large ethnic community how to organize that community is, admittedly, inherently funny.

It is called The Big Truth, and basically suggests that Conservatives trying to defend their respective traditions in the various nations under attack from the Left--including America--should answer their foes by a simple iteration of basic truths. Comments are invited. Suggested revisions will be carefully considered. William Flax

    I have now posted Chapter Eighteen of The Conservative Debate Handbook, although it is only linked to about 10 other urls at the web site, thus far. The subject is An American Foreign Policy, and it compares some of the outrages committed by such Leftists running the American Foreign Service as Dean Rusk (the Kennedy/Johnson Secretary of State), and President Clinton, with the sound, patriotic, pragmatic, ethical and effective policy established by Washington and Jefferson in the early days of this Republic. It is intended to show how far we have sometimes drifted, and what we should have done. But ...

    We posted Chapter 16 of the Conservative Debate Handbook, today. It deals with some of those who were most successful in promoting facets of the Fabian Socialist assault on our heritage on American College and University campuses, during the Century just past. It is offered as an aid in fighting back against a continuing onslaught that threatens almost every thing that is important to American Conservatives. You may go directly to the essay at Myths & Myth Makers In American "Higher" Education. As always, comments are invited. William Flax

    I have now posted the Chapter of the Conservative Debate Handbook, that deals specifically with Immigration. It may be accessed at Immigration & The American Future.. While I have in the past invited direct Email comments, my email has been under viral and worm attacks, so I have had to abandon email communications, until such time as I can be certain that new protective measures are working as they are supposed to. You can, email me, but there will not be an answer for now. The other side of this is that if any one reading this has recently had ...

    I have just published the first complete draft of an article suggesting the correct focus for the War on Terrorism, at my Conservative web site. Comments are invited, before I revise the draft into final form. The basic suggestion is that we focus more attention on the Internationalist aspect of the enemy than on his own pretenses of theological roots. But there is more to it than that.
  • How To Recognize The Bigot In The Argument!

    I have now posted Chapter Thirteen of the Conservative Debate Handbook at my web site. It is entitled How To Recognize The Bigot In The Argument, and directly confronts the false pretensions of such organizations as the NAACP, ADL, People For The American Way and Southern Poverty Law Center, to be supporters of tolerance and understanding. The Chapter is still undergoing revision, and hence has an "under construction" tag. But it is near enough to a final version that I am posting this link here to invite friendly criticism, before putting the last touches on it.

    I have just published the comments that I promised in a couple of threads, last week, on the Cincinnati riots, at my web site. Since the article contains some information that has not been generally reported in the news, I am offering it under the Government section, rather than as purely personal opinion. (Of course, it does contain my very definite opinions on the subject matter.) In case the link in the Source listing does not work, here is the article: The Flip-Side Of Insult.

    269 years ago, today, a man was born in Virginia who grew into the most famous American of all; a man whose character--his strength, integrity, fairness, objectivity, reverence and wisdom--came to be more clearly and widely accepted as exemplifying the very best in the American character, than any other American, before or since. That man was our First President, First Soldier, First Statesman, George Washington. While it is to our shame that this day is no longer one of our principal American Holidays, it will be noted by many of us nonetheless. As a personal commemoration, I urge as many ...

    We have finally gotten around to posting a commentary on the recent election, with recommendations for how we should address the political future. It is not quite what we wished for; but it is more important to encourage a discussion of the various issues than to achieve rhetorical niceties. It may be found at Politics 2001--Lesson 2000, and the critical comments--favorable or unfavorable--of all are invited. It will be revised further--although not softened--after we evaluate the reaction.

    While the polls remain open, it is folly to sit glued to sites that are reporting exit poll data. There is still time to influence the actual poll data. Now is the time to be posting on the gut issues at forums frequented by the enemy. Now is the time to be trying to make people leaning to Gore--who have not yet voted--think twice. Each of us will have his own slant on the campaign. Mine has been pushed for a month here. (Campaign 2000--The Tactics Of Victory.) During the interval since I visited here this morning, I have posted ...
