The Muller Investigation did it's job

The Muller investigation was a huge success, even thought it didn't find any collusion by Trump.  For almost 2 years it gave special prosecutes the power to put anyone that did business with Trump, supported him politically or was close friend of his, under microscopes and expose any activities they were involved with that weren't 100% legit.  As a result of this investigation many of his supporters, business partners and friends are in big trouble for activities that would have ordinarily gone UN-noticed, many just for lying about what they knew.    The word is out, if you support Trump, or do business with him you might find yourself under a microscope.  I'm sure many potential supporters will be scared away by that possibility.   Of course Democrats couldn't be more pleased since I think most didn't really…

What feeds the furor over inequality

While the Marxist theory of value is flawed in all contexts, one could at least understand the nature of the error in the context of pre-industrial society ... because the contribution of intellectual capital to human productivity was much lower than that in a capitalist, industrial society. To hold…

Saving Capitalism

Capitalism in the United States has developed a major problem with two possible consequences, both dangerous. The problem is concentration of wealth. The last numbers I’ve seen, which are a few years old and which are likely to have gotten worse since then, are expressed as wealth by quintile,…

The face of the Democratic Party is changing

If someone told you 5 years ago that Nancy Pelosi, in just a few years, would be the moderate Democrat voice in the house would you have believed it? I know I would have laughed out loud. It’s incredible how quickly the left has radicalized.   I’m middle to right on most issues, mor…

The Hysteria of Our Times

Recently in the UK a super market chain was forced to take all of their chocolate Easter bunnies off the store shelves.  What happened?  One of the bunnies in the 3 pack of bunnies was dark chocolate with raspberry filling and called "the ugly duckling."  A woman, a white one no less,…

Only the most ignorant would 'deny' climate change

The World Health Organisation tells us that between ~2015 and 2050 (35 years) 120,000,000 (yes, one hundred and twenty million) people in the developing world will die from respiratory conditions associated with inhaling smoke from burning wood and animal faeces over open fires in order to cook and …

Evolution of Religion

(Preface: This article was written from a Christian perspective in defense of that religion.  I am not qualified to speak on behalf of other religions and do not pretend to speak for them.)   A gentleman (Peter Dee) wrote a brief article here on WB in which he purports to “dispr…

The New Utopia (By Jerome K. Jerome)

I confess that the story below isn’t by me. All this came about through Opher Goodwin’s recent thread on George Orwell. In the comments there, several references were made to Aldous Huxley and his Brave New World. While googling for something else, I came across the text of a (not so) sh…

Socialism is not just a religion, it's a business

Socialists are entirely happy with letting religions serve them. After brutally suppressing the Orthodox Christian religion and looting their churches, Stalin actually reinstated them as the main religion of the Bolshevik Empire, back in 1943 - so long as the Bolsheviks got to pick who the bishops w…

WHO IS INTERESTED TO BE PART OF A WB BAND ?     Ok. I try it again, I was really pissed of yesterday because - before - articles were saved as drafts, but now they're gone instantly when 48 hours are not respected......I also can't see my profile anymore on WB, but well, here we go again (Whitesnake) :-)…

    I mean I don't like "traitors". But I also don't like Camp 1391 or Guantanamo. And I don't like people who start wars. Probably some of you like that (for reasons I can't follow anyway), but I don't. And if some guy and his gang show up and make public what is wrong and he gets labele…

A Theoretical Deconstruction of Liberalism

  The foundation of liberalism needs to be meticulously dissected and a complete autopsy performed on this social disease. We ought to begin the rather tedious dissection of liberalism by examining one of their most celebrated (and intellectually dishonest), tenets: egalitarianism. …

The Sun controls Earth's climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide levels have very little to do with "global warming" or "climate change". The hysteria generated by Al Gore and other misinformed non-scientists is ridiculous as their projected fantasies have already shown to be not happening. The polit…

Trump supporters come from all races, all parties and all walks of life. We are the base of the tax dollars in this country. We are the ones who know the difference between the Messiah and a leader.   It is the Demonicrat/Socialist/Communist and Alinsky party that raised the Millennial snowflak…

The Beat Goes on XXXIII

Now that we’ve made the switch to Disqus, I’m sure most of you are really pissed at me right now.  Let me reiterate the reason for doing it, Writer Beat was not growing organically.  By organically I mean, people were not finding their way here and establishing accounts to comm…

The Death of CNN and MSNBC

The death of CNN and MSNBC, or at least turning them into an inconsequential network few watch is coming closer.  Their viewers mostly skew over age 60.  To be fair so does Fox but Fox gets far more old geezers watching.   Anderson Cooper is said to get about 200,000 viewers a night.&…

Ubi Jus Ibi Remedium

There is a maxim of law, dating back to the Romans, "Ubi Ius, Ibi Remedium" ("Where there is a right, there is a remedy.")  Modern lawyers often state it as "Where there is a right there is a remedy, but not (necessarily) where there is a wrong."    Reading two recent articles, …

Jussie is his Mother's Son

Jussie Smollett said after all the charges were dropped against him, “No one will ever know how much that has meant to me and I will forever be grateful. I want you to know that not for a moment was it in vein. I’ve been truthful and consistent on every level since day one. I would not b…

Addiction to Prediction

Emergency On The Border

The liberals who call themselves “progressives” pretend not to notice the relentless stream of humanity trying to force their way across America’s southern border.   With one voice, the Democrats led by Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have for months called the mass migration o…

Mueller’s Maddening Misadventure

Setting the Parameters Those who initiated the investigation chose the man they wanted; a man with integrity beyond reproach, who would find out the truth. The suspicion of corruption in the highest office in the land, and, oh, yeah, I nearly forgot, a lot of disgruntled defeated Democrats absolutel…

I Did not want to write this article because well, women in music is still to this day a tough subject.   Im a female and over the years I have told these stories about things I did and been challenged a time or two on them.  Im not a guy so there are three pre-existing notions, a) girls d…

Atheism and Morality Co-Existing

I came across a youtube vid of Jordan Peterson vs. Matt Dillahunty recently. I had never heard of the latter.   Apparently he's a prominent atheist. He's from Austin and has hosted a cable access show called the Atheist Experience for over a decade. He won the award "Atheist of the Year" one ye…
