  • "Equality" an essay by CS Lewis (1943)

    I'm a democrat because I believe in the Fall of Man. I think most people are democrats for the opposite reason. A great deal of democratic enthusiasm descends from the ideas of people like Rousseau, who believed in democracy because they thought mankind so wise and good that everyone deserved a share in the government. The danger of defending democracy on those grounds is that they're not true. And whenever their weakness is exposed, the people who prefer tyranny make capital out of the exposure. I don't deserve a share in governing a hen-roost, much less a nation. Ivor do...

    Republican Rep. Jason Lewis has repeatedly demeaned recipients of welfare and government assistance, calling them "parasites" and "scoundrels," and said the black community had "traded one plantation for another." Lewis made the comments on a conservative radio show he hosted, "The Jason Lewis Show," from 2009 to 2012. CNN's KFile previously reported that Lewis made racist comments about African-Americans and lamented not being able to call women "sluts" on his program.

    Schumer owns this. The IRS for one will still be working. And, they will be working on authorized overtime now to make up time for getting taxes in. Schumer, Lewis and Cummings specifically are behind all of this. The liberals (both sides) want all of these immigrants here to pay taxes AND to vote to keep the liberals in power while they take advantage of them.

    President Donald Trump will participate in a separate private event at the new Civil Rights Museum in Jackson, Mississippi, on Saturday morning, rather than in the public ceremony. The decision came after the presidents plan to attend the opening erupted into controversy. The Mississippi Department of Archives and History and the White House agreed to have a separate event after a series of noteworthy civil rights leaders and speakers decided to boycott the event and local groups planned to protest. Trump will tour the museum and speak at a private program in the morning, and the public ceremony will begin...
  • Vanity - NFL, Ex-Raven, Ray Lewis rants & raves...aimlessly. Sad!!!

    Watched ex-Raven, Ray Lewis last evening, act out the role of the uninformed, blithering, idiot he is. I could go on but, as incoherent and lost at sea as this fellow is, he needs professional help, because he not coherently speak the English language in proper fashion. His "I am praying rant and raves are 100% meaningless", for he does not know what praying is, and what it is for. Shame on the NFL for letting this guy shoot off his mouth, trying to protect the America Haters, he loves so much in the NFL, the NBA and MLB!!!

    He's never held elective office and is in a tight special House election fight, but Georgia Democrat Jon Ossoff has won a stunning comparison to former President John F.

(VIDEO-AT-LINK) "I've met every president since President Kennedy. And I tell you, President Kennedy young, smart and gifted. John Ossoff is young, smart and gifted," he said to cheers......

    Lew Lukens, the highest-ranking U.S. official in London, is a piece of work.  The Chargé d'Affaires, or acting U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, undercut President Trump's criticism of London's Mayor Sadiq Khan in the wake of the recent terror attack by brazenly tweeting high praise to the leftist leader, whose hostility to Trump is well known. Lukens's tweet, spotted as a retweet on former Obama deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes's Twitter feed, reads: I commend the strong leadership of the @MayorofLondon as he leads the city forward after this heinous attack. – LLukens 3/3 https://t.co/p4dDZuCpyO — U.S. Embassy London (@USAinUK) June 4,...

    A Maia or an Eldil would be the Tolkien or Lewis equivalent of a Power or Authority, a non-corporeal personal intelligence, known in from the Greek "messenger" as an Angel, near the middle of the nine choirs in Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite's De Coelesti Hierarchia, On the Celestial Hierarchy.Eru as God is properly called Eru Iluvatar in Tolkien's Silmarillioin.In Tolkien's Silmarillion and Lewis' Out of the Silent Planet, these intelligences worked to heal the deliberate destruction of the populated worlds by the very powerful, corrupted intellect, which Tolkien names Melkor/Morgoth, and Lewis seems not to name. That latter, evil being is...

    GOP-Hating Rep. John Lewis Didnt Pay His Real Estate Taxes Instead of finding fault with the new president, maybe Rep. John Lewis should worry about paying his real estate taxes. The well-paid congressman didnt pay taxes on his nearly $1 million posh D.C. townhouse on Capital Hill. Rep. Lewis said Donald Trump isnt a legitimate president, same thing he said about George Bush, but hes not a legitimate taxpayer. Public records show he avoided paying property taxes on his DC townhouse at 219 3rd Street SE on Capitol Hill, Got News reported. Click the link for Got News to see...

    "BREAKING: Trump-Hating Democratic @RepJohnLewis DIDNT PAY TAXES On His Nearly $1 Million Fancy DC Townhouse" Trump-hating Democratic Georgia congressman John Lewis didnt pay property taxes on his nearly $1 million fancy Washington, D.C. townhouse on Capitol Hill, despite being in Congress for decades, where the salary for a Representative starts at $174,000 per year. Lewis was in the news recently for saying he doesnt see President-elect Donald J. Trump as a legitimate president because of the #RussianHackers Democratic conspiracy theory. Public records show he avoided paying property taxes on his DC townhouse at 219 3rd Street SE on Capitol Hill:

    John Lewiss Record in Congress Is Less Than Heroic The Democrat deserves an honored place in history. But Trump has a point about what hes done lately. Jason L. Riley If Donald Trump had been referring to Rep. John Lewiss civil-rights record when he wrote on Twitter Saturday that the congressman was all talk and no action, the president-elect might need a refresher course in U.S. history. One of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s closest allies, Mr. Lewis was on the front lines of the successful fight to end Jim Crow. But for anyone who bothers to check out the...

    Al Sharpton backed up his fellow civil rights leader, Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., who last week questioned the legitimacy of President-elect Donald Trump. 'I think there is no question that the process that elected him was not legitimate,' Sharpton said yesterday on MSNBC, the network where he also hosts a show. Since Lewis said that he didn't view Trump as a 'legitimate president,' he's been whacked around by the president-elect, who continued to tweet about the civil rights leader and Democratic congressman today. During the interview and citing intelligence reports that pointed to Russian interference, Sharpton said the electoral process...

    On January 20, 2001, John Lewis did not attend George W. Bushs inauguration. He didnt make a big deal about it, but Bush losing the popular vote coupled with the contentious Florida recount left Lewis feeling less than magnanimous. According to contemporaneous press accounts, the Georgia congressman and civil rights icon spent Inauguration Day in his Atlanta district. Lewis was hardly the only prominent Democrat who had trouble accepting the new president after the 2000 election was finally decided. Appearing on NBCs Meet the Press, Jesse Jackson trashed the U.S. Supreme Court and questioned Bushs legitimacy. Recognizing the starkness of...

    President-elect Donald Trump is paying too much heed to the ranting of civil-rights veteran John Lewis: The Georgia congressmans been playing the same tune about every top Republican for years now. Yes, Lewis accusation was baseless and blatantly partisan: He said Trump isnt a legitimate president because of Russian hacking, and hed skip the inauguration, the first one Ive missed since Ive been in Congress. Oops: He didnt attend George W. Bushs inauguration in 2001, either charging that Dubya wasnt truly elected. Last year, Lewis said Trump reminds me so much of the things that George Wallace said and...

    On Friday, Georgia Congressman John Lewis, whose 5th District includes the City of Atlanta, said of Donald Trump that I dont see the president-elect as a legitimate president. Trump characteristically fired back with a two-part tweet suggesting that Lewis spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. As would be expected, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution rushed to Lewiss defense. In its apparent haste to do so, a pair of journalists at the paper committed a colossal math blunder...
