Review of “Hillary’s America”

Yesterday I went to see Dinesh D’Souza’s new film, Hillary’s America. I saw his previous two—2016: Obama’s America and America: Imagine the World Without Her—and all three, from my perspective, are superbly written, visually effective, professionally produced, and timely for an age living in deception. My personal favorite is the second, America: Imagine the World Without Her, but the new Hillary film is very significant as well. Hillary’s America has two goals: trace the “hidden” history of the Democrat party;… Read more »

Interpreting American History

My time off from blogging during June was most welcome. It’s not that I don’t enjoy doing this; I certainly do. A break, though, can be helpful at times. As I contemplated how to proceed with this blog, I realized that even though, as a historian, I have delved time and again into American history on this site, I haven’t done so systematically. Here’s what I propose to do. I want to go through American history from the beginning and… Read more »

I’ve commented regularly about Obama’s belief that he… Read more »

A Sober Analysis

I try very hard not to be a conspiracy theorist. I make every attempt not to be shrill in my commentaries. I seek to bring faith and reason together and deliver a sober analysis of events. The cartoons I use so often are the comic relief to illustrate my main points. It’s my genuine hope that fair-minded individuals will read these daily ponderings and acknowledge their honesty, at least. So I want to make sure I’m not simply partisan when… Read more »

2016: Obama’s America Review

Whenever I consider seeing a movie that either has a Christian theme or a political stance with which I agree, I admit to having anxiety over whether it will be worthwhile. Will the production values be top-notch or will they try to get away with inferior work? Will the message be heavy-handed or finessed, with solid background and/or documentation? I even wonder if I’ll find myself in the midst of a protest against the film that could lead to violence…. Read more »

Obama: Will He Change?

While President Obama was giving a speech last week, the presidential seal on his podium fell off and crashed to the floor. Commentators had a field day with the symbolism of that event—was it emblematic of a presidency that has crashed as well? Frankly, it’s not necessary for the presidential seal to fall to come to the conclusion that Barack Obama’s presidency is at a critical juncture. The Democrat Party is poised to lose control of the House [virtually a… Read more »
