Get Your Hands off our Jihadists

Here is my latest offering for the Conservative Woman website, this time on the subject of Syria. The United States and its allies suffered what is known as an Emperor’s New Clothes moment last week. After two decades of tearing up the notion of national sovereignty in their efforts to impose their will upon the world, it took a simple question from the Russian President at the United Nations General Assembly to reveal the nakedness of their utopian ideology: “Do […]

The Inconsistent Morality of Ashley Madison

This is my latest piece for Samaritan Ministries International Ashley Madison, the adultery-promoting internet dating site, recently received a taste of its own relativistic medicine and apparently found it didn’t go down too well. For those who aren’t aware, Ashley Madison is a dating site with a difference, operating not on the principle of bringing singles together, as is usual for such sites, but rather with the intent of bringing married people together to commit adultery. And they are not in […]

US Foreign Policy: “Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting”

Imagine a kid at school. An intimidating kid he is, packing a lot of muscle, used to getting his own way, and with no scruples about bullying other kids that stand in his way. His goal is to get everyone to acknowledge his authority and leadership over them, and he’s not afraid to use any number of tactics to make this happen. Sometimes he humiliates them. Sometimes he arm-twists them. Sometimes he threatens to take their money. Sometimes he gets other […]

The Biggest Ever Mass Convergence of Candidates for the Role of Antichrist — But no Vacant Position Available

The next few days in the city of New York will see no less than six people considered by many as possible candidates for the position of antichrist attending the 70th session of the United Nations. With Ban ki-Moon, Pope Francis, Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin, Hassan Rouhani and Benjamin Netanyahu all set to attend and give addresses, by my reckoning this is easily the biggest convergence of contenders ever seen in one place. Not only this, but with the assembly set […]

Freedom to Think and Shut up

My latest post for Conservative Woman. I have some thoughts in my head, but I’m reluctant to share them with you. I don’t want to land myself in trouble, you see. Some of these thoughts may or not be about marriage, and I may or may not have opinions about whether a marriage really ought to have just one man and just one woman in it. But I’ll leave you to guess. Must keep it all in the head. Letting […]

Certifiably Crazy Carly: Mrs Fiorina & the Sad Decline of a Once Great Nation

If someone who was seriously vying to become leader of the world’s richest and most powerful country pledged not to even speak to the leader of the world’s biggest country if they became president, wouldn’t that immediately disqualify them for the role? You might think so, yet in the strange world of US politics it apparently qualifies as a plus point. In last week’s dog and pony show between Republocrat tough-guys, Carly Fiorina attempted to establish her tough-girl credentials by saying […]

Press Freedoms and Making Europe Safer by Banning Steve Rosenberg for 24 Hours

Wednesday 16th September was a bad day for those who have managed to fool themselves into believing that the Ukrainian Government is somehow characterised by “democratic values”, noble intentions and a steadfast commitment to liberty. Although there was really no excuse for not knowing the real nature of this unpleasant regime before, it still seems to have come as a shock to the western media when certain journalists were, by Presidential decree, barred from entering the country for a year on account of their being a “threat […]
