    Next Step

    Writes a friend:


    Assuming Trump has anyone around him willing and capable of gathering the facts behind events in Charlottesville (dating back to even the time of the application for permit by the protestors), his only smart move at this point is to go public with a speech and specific evidence – to include DOJ / FBI officials (again, assuming any can be trusted).  He should then call out, by name, everyone who ripped him for his earlier statements – including the cowardly business-council milquetoasts.

    Going on offense 140 characters at a time won’t cut it.

    I write this not knowing the facts (who does); yet I am certain of one thing: the true story is not as one-sided as is being portrayed.

    Rothbardian NFL Player

    Writes Michael Mellott:

    Hi Mr. Rockwell,

    I wanted to forward along this profile of my buddy in the NFL, in which Rothbard literally makes an appearance.

    He’s currently fighting for one of the final roster spots.

    Next on the Left-Destructo List

    The Confederate bas-relief at Stone Mountain. And while the secular iconoclasts are at it, how about everything left from every ancient civilization, since all of them had slavery: Romans, Aztecs, Incas, Greeks, Assyrians, Africans, Muslims, Chinese, Babylonians, Israelis, Egyptians, etc. Start with the Parthenon.

    Britain’s 1st Gender Fluid Family

    Writes a friend:

    It is still shocking to me how normalized this movement has become.  I was in a grocery store yesterday and saw a grade school boy, clutching his Barbie Doll – my involuntary reaction of dismay was overt.

    Last week, part of my son’s first literature assignment was to read an excerpt from the book “A Landscape of Dragons’ by Catholic author Michael O’Brien,  I was not familiar with this book, but perhaps you are?  The excerpt was the first part of the the Chapter 4 – The Mortal Foe of my Children – The New Illiteracy.  Worth a read, see the first 4 1/2 pages here.

    The excerpt also reminded me of two other articles you recently sent me (smart phones related to teen depression & Harry Potter pseudo-religion).  While I am thrilled that our little school is sound in it’s teachings and subject matter, sadly the author of this book is all too correct in his assessment.  Each generation is declining further and faster than ever before, as the masses seem to only be in pursuit of pleasure, because they lack the foundation, mindset & discipline to seek the truth.

    Who’s Behind Antifa?

    Writes Wes Baker:


    Doesn’t this question answer itself?  Didn’t Pat Buchanan, during his Presidential run, when it was insinuated he held Klan-like beliefs, once quip, ‘the Klan would be finished were it not for all of the FBI infiltrators’ dues’.  Heck, the Cointelpro wiki page is a day’s read…

    Wonder who’s behind antifa….?  Two guesses.

    Gov. Terry McAullife

    Writes a friend:


    A few comments about the Charlotteville incident:

    Number one: It is clear the Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe is running for President.

    Number two: The Mayor of Charlottesville and Governor Terry McAuliffe colluded with each other to instruct the Police to stand down as both groups beat the crap out of each other while Police officers stood around and did nothing.

    Number three: This was a major media event promised by both the Mayor of Charlottesville and Governor Terry McAuliffe to ensure national coverage of the event and to assign blame for the incident on Donald Trump.

    As a crass, but cynical political operation, it was beautifully staged and accomplished its intended purpose.

    Terry McAullife heavily supported by Bill and Hillary Clinton will be running for President of the United States.

    You heard it here first.

    Thank You…

    Writes Carol:

    There are those of us slightly older folks whose budget is very limited.  I just wanted to say thank you for keeping LewRockwell.com free and available so I can read real, more conservative news.  I like the articles and appreciate being able to get good information.  (Not to mention I agree with most of it anyway being a very conservative person!!)  I am a Vietnam ERA female veteran who is even embarrassed to have supported this government.  I am not as naïve as I was when I was younger and feel that our government is now totally out of control.  I believe we live in a police state now.  How sad and scary. Anyway, Just thank you for doing this.  I appreciate you!!
