As our friends at American Thinker recently noted here, the legal winds are shifting against websites that advocate conservative values, seeking, among other things, to make the site operators responsible for what commenters write. The commenting function at ACWT has not been especially active, though many of the comments are clearly heartfelt. Our preference would be to allow the comment function to blossom into a forum or community for the exchange of views. But until America more firmly renews its commitment to the rule of law, we will disable the comment function until further notice.

From COVID-19 – A New Birth of Freedom

Americans may not generally be aware that Abraham Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address was delivered less than five months after the horrendous battle at that site, and well before the outcome of the Civil War was certain. Yet he posited the profound hope that out of the carnage would come a

“In God We Trust” – Up for Renewal

Thanks to American Thinker for posting March 24, 2020 It’s America’s motto, and it’s time to dust it off and put it back to use. Let’s start with Albert Einstein: “Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.” Computer models projecting COVID-19 doomsday scenarios are accurate science in

Are America, and Trump, Being Played?

Thanks to American Thinker for posting March 21, 2020 Our concern about Donald Trump in the campaign of 2016 was not about his personal morals. The ultimate choice to vote for him was made easier by the manifest political criminality of Hillary Clinton. And his emergence as an America First,

Let’s Go with “CCP Virus”

Arguing that the correct identification of the geographic origin of the virus is racist is mostly entertaining silliness; it’s group identity politics gone so far off the rails that it’s hard to get angry about it. It’s really a choice between laughing or crying at the absurdity. But there is

Is the Panic Another Deep State Hoax/Plot?

The coronavirus is a real thing. No argument about that. And nobody wants to catch it, anymore than anyone ever wants to catch a virus or any flu or even a cold. And everyone is annoyed by sloppy hygiene among people who are not feeling well—if you can’t muffle your

Coronavirus…Climate Change Hysteria on Steroids? UPDATED

UPDATE:  We noted below “as ‘authorities’ everywhere declare emergency after emergency, and cancel school and concerts and sporting events and everything else, there may soon be an American spirit of rebellion and questioning arising.”  The Mayor of Nashville, Tennessee just encountered this American spirit…we wouldn’t be surprised if Governors DeWine

“Unrestricted Warfare” – and America’s Response

The coronavirus pandemic is a fount of conspiracy theories as to its origin and purpose. But an application of Occam’s Razor may point to the uncomfortable reality that an orchestrated release of a bioweapon called ‘coronavirus’ is quite possibly a Chinese counterattack to the imposition of US tariffs that were

Will Trump Unleash Coronavirus Bailouts?

Thanks to American Thinker for posting March 8, 2020 The calls for federal government bailouts of industries hit hardest by the coronavirus—airlines and the shipping industry are the easiest to grasp—are going to grow louder, and within nine months of the 2020 election, President Trump—never a staunch limited government guy—is

There Will Be a Coronavirus-induced Downturn – And a Recovery

Thanks to American Thinker for posting March 6, 2020 When airlines are cutting back on flights, when cruise lines are canceling cruises, when shipyard traffic drops significantly, when factories in China are ‘down’ for a month or more, all in response to or in anticipation of coronavirus ripple effects—there is
