Hate crimes have been rampant under President Trump, amounting to a horrendous rate of 0.005 percent of the incidents tracked by the FBI. That’s right. Despite the narrative that this administration has ushered in a climate of hate, the number of crimes is almost statistically insignificant. Although every hate crime is abhorrent, I think it’s … Continue reading The truth about hate crimes
You'll note that I didn't do anything to commemorate 9/11 this year at all, not even the great victory on Lake Champlain in 1814 that I've occasionally mentioned. I think constantly morning the dead in big ceremonies is a bad idea while we are still fighting any of these guys, all it does it give … Continue reading My n9/11 Silence, Election? What Election? Pizza? Please, Antonio Brown Suit, Playing it out Under the Fedora.
I was planning a piece on the difference between the critics and the people in the reaction to the Dave Chappelle special, but the good folks at Nerdrotic.com beat me to it I can't put it better than that but let me remind you that these are the same type of people who keep telling … Continue reading The Critics vs Reality Chappelle/Nerdrotic edition
Former Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco died August 18; she had been suffering from ocular melanoma. Whether or not one agrees with her politics, pretty much everyone will concede that Governor Blanco was a class act. She was always gracious and kind, and her love for the state of Louisiana was never questioned. She caught a … Continue reading Report from Louisiana: Medical Marijuana Eases Blanco’s Last Days
Next week the NFL begins their season and there is as there always seems to be talk about the possibility of signing a woman as a kicker. My thought on this is simple. As long as she doesn't complain about being flattened by a 300lb man trying to block a kick, doesn't hesitate to try … Continue reading Woman Kickers, James White, Sacrificial Bidens MSM Standards and Inept Parents Under the Fedora
While I like very much the idea of buying Greenland particularly in the context of keeping China and Russia out I really think there is no percentage in the President canceling the meeting with the Danish Prime minister over her reaction to the suggestion. A lot of these country might not have a lot of … Continue reading A Rare Misstep , Tabib and Jon Sable, Puig’s visits their targets, Everybody (but one) Loses, No Wondermark Environmental Cup For you Meat Eaters Among the Poor!

My post on Canon Turner's 1st Mass got a lot of attention considering it wasn't instalanched and I wanted to make a point that might have been unclear. I have been to the Latin mass before just not a high mass of the type that was on display. Personally I think it would be healthy … Continue reading Under the Fedora Latin and English, Biden & History, NYT vs Alex Stephens, LGBTQ vs Legal Documents, Dick’s Vs Guns
A few days ago I attended the 1st Mass of Canon Edward Turner of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest who was ordained in Rome on July 4th as a Catholic priest. The Mass was a solemn high mass of the 1962 rite held at St John the Guardian of our lady Parish at … Continue reading Trump, Election 2020 and The Optimism of a Latin Mass.
As a general rule it's not a good idea to blame others for the actions of an individual. For example when Maurice Hill decided to shoot a bunch of police coming to arrest him, it was likely not a political statement on police, had nothing to do with folks like Senators Kamala Harris or Elizabeth … Continue reading The Democrats Own the Philly Cop Shootings
I'm completely confused. When leftists were harassing people like Sarah Huckabee Sanders instead of universal condemnation there were huge debates on TV justifying these actions. People well known to the public, people in media, in entertainment and who hold office were out there suggesting that she had it coming and that such people were to … Continue reading Chris Cuomo and the Left Suddenly Don’t like the New Rules (and what’s with the #fredo stuff?)
The AG has ordered an investigation of the death of Jeffrey Epstein. Thanks to James Comey and the Obama administration almost nobody trusts the government to conduct an honest one. ---------------- In a thread on Twitter Popehat made a pretty good point about incompetence in organization in order to counter those like me who assume … Continue reading Two line thoughts Under the Fedora: Comey Fallout, Popehat’s Point, Release Hunt, Animals being Animals and Good kids with Guns
Today is the feast of the Transfiguration http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/15019a.htm and as such it is an excellent time to answer a question I've been hearing concerning the Dayton and El Paso shootings, particularly from the non-religious: "Were was God when this was going on?" The short answer is: " Where you expect him to be?" For nearly … Continue reading How Dare God leave us when we asked him to
I’m not a big fan of publishing manifesto of killers. The last thing a society that pushes fame and notoriety above all needs to do is give people desperate to feel important a platform. Alas in an instant information age where the value of clicks overwhelm all else, there is zero chance that such sober … Continue reading Some Mass Shooting Thoughts Under the Fedora
There are a lot of great things about the latest offering from Mayim Bialik at her youtube channel titled: I'm A Stay-At-Home Mom...Again! It's full of great insights, the details of basic life, the tasks of a mother of young sons, the repetitiveness and ordinariness of mother's average day, but it's the realization of what … Continue reading Mayim Bialik unintentionally explains the price women have paid for Feminism.
