Lord Acton’s famous saying has been quoted endlessly but can still never be repeated too often: Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power tends to corrupt absolutely. The concept is actually an observation of the nature of the human heart, not yours or mine specifically but the human heart in general.
The death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, who murdered his people and turned Cuba into an isolated island with a sub-Haiti standard of living, was remarked upon in the strangest way by many of our leading media and political leaders. Among progressives and leftists there was sadness and even some eulogies to the great things Castro supposedly accomplished. Others, such as President Obama, made obscure statements devoid of moral clarity about what kind of leader Castro actually was.
This election will determine the fate of our nation. With Donald Trump we have a chance, and it is only that. Over the past few years we have learned to our shock and dismay just how corrupt and out of touch our elected officials really are. They have an agenda and it does not include the American people, except in extracting as much of our resources as possible. They are a powerful force. I don’t know if Donald Trump can overcome it, but I do know that no one else can.
After making most of his presidency a textbook case of a nation’s Chief Executive meddling constantly in local affairs on the basis of “innuendo” and “incomplete information”, Obama falsely accused FBI Director James Comey yesterday of doing the same thing with regard to reopening the criminal probe into Hillary Clinton. To anyone following developments of the investigations the last several months, it’s painfully obvious there’s more than enough evidence to support at least the empanelling of a grand jury in the Clinton probe, so that there’s simply no need for innuendo or incomplete information – that would be underkill.
Plus everyone knows that if the investigation were against Republicans, even it was only based on innuendo and incomplete information, Obama would be elbowing others out of his way to the closest microphone to fret over the “seriousness of these charges” and declaim that “that’s not who we are”.

Political correctness about human sexuality is fostering horror stories for some of the nation’s most vulnerable children and their families. A new report attempts to clear that away to present the science.
While economies are suffering and international order is falling apart, here at home we’re solving the problems of humankind by inventing words nobody wants and that mean nothing. “Ve”, “ver”, and “vis” are the shiny new words you have to use at West Virginia University, or the Thought Police will want to have a word with you.
