The Trophy (An Essay on Ritual and Understanding)

T

By Wayne Allensworth The trophy hangs in my office nowadays. When I was a boy at home, for a time it faced my bed. The black centered eyes gazed at me at night, the head looking wise somehow. The thick neck. The “points” of its wide antlers. The ears seemingly on alert. It had hung in our kitchen when I was very young, just over the kitchen table. The kitchen was small, as was the...

Texas Memories on Independence Day

T

by Wayne Allensworth March and April are special months for true Texans. March 2 is Texas Independence Day. March 6 is Alamo Day. And April 21 marks Sam Houston’s victory over Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto. Being a Texan has always been the bedrock of my identity. I’m an American because I’m a Texan. And my boyhood memories are full of Texas Independence Day commemorations...

Ordinary People (Past and Present) 

O

By Wayne Allensworth I was looking through my late father’s personal effects recently and ran across a letter. It wasn’t just any letter, but one he had kept from among his late brother Harold’s belongings. A gunner on a B-24, he died on D-Day in World War II. It was from a young lady named Virginia in his hometown of Houston, Texas. Harold went through training in San Antonio and was...

Harvard Crimson: Search Committee Did Not Vet Gay’s Scholarship Before Hiring

H

By R. Cort Kirkwood (The New American) On the heels of the latest revelation that another diversity officer at Harvard University plagiarized her doctoral thesis, the school now faces the unpleasant task of explaining why the search committee that hired former president Claudine Gay — forced to resign after her plagiarism was revealed — did not check her scholarship. The latest blow to the...

Today’s Generation Gap Is Not The Fault Of The Young

T

By Wayne Allensworth You baby boomers out there will remember the “generation gap” of the 1960’s-70’s, that invisible psychological barrier between many, but far from all, parents and grandparents and what was called “the younger generation.” We had what was known at the time as “a failure to communicate.” Whether it was race, religion, Vietnam, the role of the state, religion, or, most of all...

Heritage Oversight Project: Biden, Leftists Rigging 2024 Election

H

By R. Cort Kirkwood (The New American) On March 7, 2021, President Joe Biden signed the innocuously titled “Executive Order on Promoting Access to Voting.” But it wasn’t so innocuous after all. For the last three years, the Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reports, federal bureaucrats have worked with radical leftists to rig the 2024 election, most likely with a massive ballot-harvesting...

Russia and Ukraine are Mirror Images of One Another (Navalny’s death—and Gonzo Lira’s)

R

By Wayne Allensworth Russian opposition figure Aleksey Navalny has reportedly died in a Russian penal colony. Undoubtedly, Western MSM will jump at the chance to again call Vladimir Putin a murderous dictator. Whether that’s true or not has nothing to do with us. What happens in Russia and Ukraine has nothing to do with us, as I observed earlier. Our interests are elsewhere. What’s more...

What Happens in Ukraine Is None of Our Business. Some Questions and Answers on a War Few Know Anything About

W

By Wayne Allensworth After observing with some amusement—and a great deal of frustration—the Internet blathering about Tucker Carlson’s interview with Vladimir Putin, I decided to do a brief question/answer piece on the Russia-Ukraine imbroglio and what it means for us, the American Remnant. I couldn’t come close to covering every point, but I have posted a number of articles on this website on...

Along with Youth (A Retrospective)

A

By Wayne Allensworth Piles of old magazines, Drawers of boy’s letters And the line of love They must have ended somewhere. Yesterday’s Tribune is gone Along with youth — Ernest Hemingway Bliss it was in that dawn to be alive, wrote Wordsworth. But to be young was very heaven. Part of what the poet penned as an “autobiographical poem,” those lines would linger in his heart and mind...

It’s Now or Never, Governor (Again on the Border Crisis)

I

By Wayne Allensworth Texas Governor Greg Abbott may be forced to make a decision very soon on how he wants to be remembered, as I wrote in my previous piece. He can either make a stand and assert our right of self-defense, or he can fold and deserve the ignominy that will be his legacy. The question concerns Abbott’s reaction should Joe Biden order the border patrol to attempt to get through...
