A Falling Star, a Bird’s Nest

A

By Wayne Allensworth A light in the night sky on a prairie horizon. A falling star passing through a deep blue firmament that phases ever so subtly to lighter shades of blue bordered by a wisp of cottony clouds. The red orange hues of the setting sun. Stark tree limbs seem to reach for the star on a smoky autumn evening. Let your eyes stay riveted on the star as long as you can see its proud...

American Meltdown II: The “Strange Devices” of the New America

A

By Wayne Allensworth On Veteran’s Day, Tom Piatak reminded us of some veterans who will never be thanked for their service, men who, after heroically performing their duty on the U.S.S. Liberty, have been all but forgotten. None of the hawkish GOP presidential candidates, much less any Democrats, will ever ask for a moment of silence for the men lost, and none have or ever will demand that their...

Remember The USS Liberty

R

By Tom Piatak On this Veterans Day, in a special way, I honor the men who served on the USS Liberty. Here is the very impressive list of medals they received,  including one Medal of Honor, two posthumous Navy Crosses, over a dozen Silver Stars, nearly two dozen Bronze Stars, and 208 Purple Hearts. In other words, the Liberty’s crew was one of the most decorated in U.S. Navy history...

Weak Coherence II: American Meltdown

W

By Wayne Allensworth I was walking down a path that skirted a fence line not far from our home. In the neighboring pasture the great longhorns, one of them a majestic bull, grazed quietly, looking up casually to watch me pass. The great bull shook his head and snorted, then went back to grazing. Overhead, a hawk hovered over the trail, then a second one appeared above the other raptor, twin...

Weak Coherence: Madness and Modernity

W

By Wayne Allensworth (Edvard Munch, The Scream) Turning and turning in the widening gyre The falcon cannot hear the falconer; Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold… William Butler Yeats, The Second Coming This is the third of my articles on Iain McGilchrist’s hemisphere theory, and its implications. An overview of his ideas is found in A Hole in the World and Between Two Worlds: Iain...

Globalist Blowback and the End of America

G

By Wayne Allensworth As it appears the Israelis are gearing up for a ground campaign in Gaza, threatening a general war in the Middle East that could draw American fighting men into the festivities, it’s time to assess just what America has at stake at home relative to its already overextended foreign commitments. It’s now becoming clear that “MAGA” was always an illusion. “America First” was the...

The Butterfly’s Shadow (September Song)

T

By Wayne Allensworth I was taking a walk on a cool morning. Fall had finally arrived after a blistering summer. Live oak limbs made a canopy over the path, and their long shadows trailed across me, with little breaks between the limbs where the smoky autumn sun shined through. And then out of the corner of my eye, I saw a butterfly’s shadow tracing its way through the limbs, and I looked up and...

America’s Passionate Attachments and Mass Hysteria

A

By Wayne Allensworth Judging by some of the rants I’ve seen on social media condemning arguments against further American involvement in the Middle East quagmire, one would have thought that the United States was an Axis power in WWII and can never atone for what happened to Europe’s Jews at the hands of the Nazis. So, off to war we must go, this time against Iran, perhaps. For the record...

The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: What Would Jesus Do?

T

By Wayne Allensworth This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me Mark 7:6 After 9/11, there was much ballyhoo in certain quarters about “religion” and war—hadn’t people who had their Holy Book and their vengeful God been responsible for most of the bloodletting in human history? Weren’t Christian Right Bible thumpers and Al Qaeda type fanatics basically cut from the...

Our War is Not in the Middle East

O

By Wayne Allensworth Our latest mass media distraction is the deluge of news about the fighting between the Israelis and Hamas. Hamas terrorists have taken hostages, and there has been much wailing and gnashing of teeth in Washington about “Israel’s right to exist.” The American public has been conditioned to react to whatever crisis the Blob considers to be of great import — or at least useful...
