I have a Ph.D. in philosophy from Temple University, a master's degree in philosophy from Baylor University, and a bachelor's degree in philosophy and religious studies from Wingate University. I teach philosophy at several colleges in the New Jersey and Pennsylvania areas.

Last week, I wrote two articles on Jeremy Christian, the “white supremacist” or “terrorist” “Trump supporter” from Portland who was none of these things. In the second of my two essays, I quoted from the affidavit for this case and […]

In a recent article on the “white supremacist,” “Islamophobic” “terrorist” attack in Portland that occurred over the Memorial Day weekend courtesy of a “Trump supporter,” I noted that, as of yet, we knew remarkably little of what actually happened. That […]

Over the Memorial Day weekend, Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, boarded the MAX train in Portland, Oregon and harassed two young women who, reportedly, were in Islamic attire. Three other men, who are now being hailed as heroes, came to their […]

President Trump’s “first 100 days” have certainly had their share of pitfalls and disappointments (at least for many of his supporters).  This being said, they have not been nearly as bad as either the Democrats’ media propagandists or even some […]

In February, the terrorist wing of the Democrat Party, the so-called “anti-fa” (“antifascist”), rioted at University of California at Berkeley in order to prevent Milo Yiannopoulos from delivering a speech.  The anti-American leftist thugs randomly assaulted innocents, threw Molotov cocktails, […]

On April 25, USA Today featured an article on its first page beneath a big, bold headline that read: “Gays face reversal of anti-bias protections.” This is but one more case of Fake News. Fifty-one Republican lawmakers have implored President […]
