Theodore Roosevelt’s “Strenuous Life” Speech Today

By Simon Maass Reading Theodore Roosevelt’s famous “strenuous life” speech nowadays elicits, mainly, two reactions. Firstly, one is struck by the strength of the late statesman’s character – Roosevelt’s biography leaves no doubt as to his sincerity in expounding “the doctrine of the strenuous life, the life of toil and effort, of labor and strife.”Continue reading “Theodore Roosevelt’s “Strenuous Life” Speech Today”

Bolshevism and Anarchy: Is “The Street” H. P. Lovecraft’s Most Relevant Story?

By Simon Maass In 1919, legendary horror writer Howard Phillips Lovecraft penned “The Street,” a short story perhaps more pertinent to the current political moment – from a conservative perspective, of course – than any of his other writings. Just over a century later, this is also one of his lesser-known creations, and connoisseurs whoContinue reading “Bolshevism and Anarchy: Is “The Street” H. P. Lovecraft’s Most Relevant Story?”

Happy July 4th, 2022 — A Day for Conservative Celebration!

Nowadays, it’s rare to feel optimistic about the future. The March of the progressive cathedral has seemed to move unabated and every meager conservative victory has been met in force with a larger progressive reaction and retribution. The meager gains of Trumpism were wiped out in a year, and replaced with an administration of bumblingContinue reading “Happy July 4th, 2022 — A Day for Conservative Celebration!”

On Battlefields and Common Prayers: Meditations on the Civil War, Devotion and Eternity

It has been a great honor in the past two years that I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel across the United States in ways that I previously wasn’t. Some of it was for work or family, but other opportunities came just as a chance to finally stretch my legs after 26 years ofContinue reading “On Battlefields and Common Prayers: Meditations on the Civil War, Devotion and Eternity”

Phillip K. Dick’s FORGOTTEN Pro-Life Short Story… “The Pre-Persons”

By @GingerManEditorial Many, many years ago, I stumbled across a mention of a little known story – The Pre-Persons by Philip K. Dick. I was immediately intrigued for two reasons. The first being that Dick is one of the legends of sci-fi. Even if you haven’t heard of him, you’re familiar with his work. DickContinue reading “Phillip K.

Trigger Warning: The Episcopal “Church” isn’t a Church

By Tripp Parker Any institution that denies doctrines historically affirmed by Christians for the past two thousand years isn’t a Church, even if it used to be. Worse, such an institution, by rejecting those doctrines, will soon cease to be an institution at all. Which institution am I referring to? Any number of mainline ProtestantContinue reading “Trigger Warning: The Episcopal “Church” isn’t a Church”

HUMMEL Review: What is a Woman?

I should speak candidly before I got into this review. I’m probably not approaching this from the same direction as most conservatives. Despite being a relatively traditionalist Christian and a Republican, my social views tend to slightly skew libertarian, in the sense that I tend to be quite sympathetic to people who suffer with genderContinue reading “HUMMEL Review: What is a Woman?”

Blaming the Gun: On Gun Control, Gun Statistics, and the Aftermath of School Shootings

I’ve been berated by promoted tweets all week by leftists and Democratic politicians demanding that the US abolish gun rights in the aftermath of the horrible shooting in Uvalde and I’ve become sufficiently annoyed that I need to talk about this. I recognize that shouldn’t be the primary emotion one feels after a school shooting, butContinue reading “Blaming the Gun: On Gun Control, Gun Statistics, and the Aftermath of School Shootings”

The Spiritualism of The Northman: The Anti-Medievalism, Pagan Vitality, and Post-Christian Anxiety of Robert Eggers

Robert Eggers’ newest film The Northman is a wonderful addition to the filmography of one of modern cinema’s best directors of horror and mythology.
