Jesse James

The Millennial your professor warned you about.

Incontrovertibly opposed to neoliberalism and post-modernism, including their roots, on a theological, philosophical, economic and political basis. His curriculum vitae spans chemistry, biology, law, and western jurisprudence, culminating in a Juris Doctorate. Recovering libertarian and former ivory tower resident. A reluctant monarchist because he read too much history, and watched CSPAN one too many times. Christian in the vein of Augustine and the Five Solas, advocate for patriarchy, western and Christian tradition, and the nuclear family. Avid hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman. Lover of old bourbon and old books. Happily married to his favorite redhead. Jesse lives in Virginia but will always be a Texan.

I doubt most can articulate anything past the usual tripe of ‘consent of the governed’ and ‘we the people.’

Democracy Thrives In Darkness

Among the nearly innumerable disservices the media has done to the American public, one has been to render whole portions of the dictionary meaningless, and pollute the English language like a literary Exxon Valdez. However, even in this postmodern intellectual...

This is not an opportunity to talk about difficult matters privately or in a closed environment. This is a circus. It's a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for...

The Nature of Now

The Romans had a concept, hostis humani generis, the literal translation being enemy of the human race, or common enemy of all. Cicero spoke of pirates being such in De Officiis, Book III, Ch. XXIX. It’s tied in closely with homo sacer, the legal status of being a...

Genius or Folly?

Freedom. It rolls of the tongue like an incantation we whisper, or shout, to ward off the evil spirits of Marx. Not that any of us know what Marx wrote, or understand the relationship between the kissing cousins of communism, capitalism and democracy. No, we need not...

Rebels, Insurrectionists and Revolutionaries

It has become fashionable on the right to either accept the label of rebels, or some derivation of the word and concept. While the concept may accurately describe those in the libertarian or anarchist camp, the right is not and will never be such a thing. Rebellion is...
