Final blog-post @ bestthinking.com As we begin we want to thank Bob Butler for allowing me the privilege of writing at Bestthinking.com, the experience is incredibly cathartic, and am quite grateful for the opportunity! Thank you again, Mr. Butler! I wish the best for you, and for all ladies and gentlemen @bestthinking.com. Sincerely, Thomas J. Donegan Donegan will be writing @...  Read More

We stole the above title from an MSN headline - we didn't read the article, but the article included a picture of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. This writer has a number of times posed this question: "What can one really know, or how much can one actually understand an individual, or an Administration, apart from what the Pres reports? The question has been asked before, but...  Read More

On Fox News Sunday 17 December 2017, Juan Williams (Fox News analyst/contributor and columnist) and Donna Edwards (Democrat Congresswoman from Maryland), joined Rich Lowry (Editor of the National Review) and Brian Kilmeade (Fox News morning host) on the panel discussing – among other topics – the Republican Tax-Reform Bill. Naturally, Juan Williams and the Congresswoman were concerned about how...  Read More

Suppose that a very large group of people had been poisoned by a particular food which they had eaten and that the toxin - although quite deadly in all cases - may actually take years to extinguish the poisoned individual; further suppose that an antidote was readily available, and being offered at the local Catholic Church... The question is then proposed, "How many people would show up at the...  Read More

Former Federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy III (McCarthy is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York; he led the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman - the bind sheik...) has been following and writing of the Russian-collusion probe since its inception. McCarthy has indicated that the probe is a predicate for impeachment, since there isn't...  Read More

An individual today - in this writer's hearing - mentioned Dan Rather in passing, and upon hearing Rather name a number of memories regarding Rather were recalled. In 1987, or thereabouts, this writer regularly would go to the College Union a couple days a week (the writer had a couple of hours to kill between classes). At the Union - one particular semester - five or six students (to include...  Read More

10. “The right-wing, fascistic refusal to recognize the damage being done to Gaia the earth by the burning of fossil fuels, over-harvesting of the oceans, and systematic, illegal suppression of alternative sources of energy condemns the next generations of human beings across the entire planet to an existence of misery and slavery, which is the ultimate goal of the autocracy now destroying...  Read More

In Contemplation of the Ideologue, and consideration of terminology... We wrote this note sometime during the last year, in addressing some concern of, and in response to, Professor Allen Shoaf (we do not recall when, or to which of his blog-posts this was written...); we post it now, for it addresses the apparent intellectual incongruity which is presented by the terms: "right-wing," and...  Read More

7. “The self-evident ascendancy of greed producing multi-billionaires and, soon enough, trillionaires has generated a culture of inequality and inequity that can only lead to destruction of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Effectively establishing a sick, febrile royalty identical to the sick, febrile royalty from which the founders of America fled in the 16th and following centuries,...  Read More

6. "The Republican Party turning a deaf ear and blind eye to pedophiles, violators of women's bodies, and hypocritical patriarchs who crucify the teachings of Yeshua by beating their wives and children mercilessly to bolster their own fragile egos’ gross insecurity, effectively isolates and identifies the Republican Party as the avowed enemy of the spirit of liberty that inspired the founding of...  Read More

We are sorry that this is late! As the season of Advent began Sunday, December 3rd (2017), some may like a good read to prepare for the birth of the Lord, Redeemer, sign-post for Salvation (Jesus Redeemed fallen Man, and delineates the path for Salvation; more than professing Him "Lord and Savior" is involved in Salvation; see Matthew 25: 41-46, for a description of the damned...) and the "way,...  Read More

Our responses to Professor Allen Shoaf are indicated below. 4. Every vicious exploitation of media, what I castigate as DIGITALIA , from fake news to idiot-o-logical claims of “objective truth” (which only serve savage materialism's totally subjective greed), can be instantiated in all contemporary political machinations but most especially in those of the Republican Party and its subversion of...  Read More

Addressing Shoaf's Theses Two and Three Here we continue our response to Professor Allen Shoaf's blog-post: " Eleven Theses Against the Right-Wing, Fascistic Destruction of America" Professor Shoa's theses are italics. 2. "Murder resides at the heart of the fascistic tyranny, who are prepared to murder tens of millions of Americans, especially Americans of color, in order to strike their...  Read More

Carly Fiorina was interviewed on Fox News Sunday by Chris Wallace on 11/26/2018. Wallace asked Carly about what it would take to change the culture prevalent in the boardroom, the schools and in Government, particularly Washington, DC. Ms. Fiorina answered: ‘It will take decent/good men to disassociate themselves with those men which abuse and harass women.’ This writer was a supporter of Carly...  Read More

In drafting the Bill of Rights the Founding Father's were split as to whether to include a clearly delineated description of what Rights were beyond the purview of the Federal Government; some argued (the Anti-Federalists) that the Constitution of the United States was not sufficient to protect the Rights of the citizenry from a Government which would eventually arrogate and aggregate unto the...  Read More

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin was interviewed by Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday on 19Nov2017; Mnuchin attempted to explain the Republican Tax plan(http://video.foxnews.com/v/5651797383001/?playlist_id=930909788001#sp=show-clips). Wallace begins by playing a clip of Nancy Pelosi - Democrat & House Minority Leader - asserting the Republican tax plan "gives a scrap tax-cut to the middle-class,...  Read More

Sometimes the use of a word, or the repeated use of a word, will draw one's attention to the individual employing the word. Cant - or the false show of concern - for a particular thing (a person/s, place/s, activity/activities...) is thrown at Scrooge, by the ghost-of-Christmas-Present when Scrooge - in a softening of his cold-heart inquires of the ghost the possible future of Tiny Tim. The ghost...  Read More

Saturday last (11Dec2017) we walked in a minute or two late for the local Catholic Men's Group; our ears were greeted with a couple of members discussing the empty Church's. After several minutes of listening, this writer asked a number of questions e.g., "Why the Church's are losing attendance/members?" and then a number of questions which followed their answers... This was not the first time...  Read More

One of the oft-heard/read assertions made regarding things moral - in the public-square - in at least the 2 nd half of the 20 th century (the claim may antedate those days - by many years - but this writer was not around to witness/hear/read such claims...) is: "We cannot legislate morality!" Although this writer isn't advocating the "legislating of morality" we are noting that law – by...  Read More

The Trump Health and Human Services Agency has proclaimed that human-life begins at conception on October 10, 2017. That seems to be a first… It is likely considered scandalous among the malefic that advocate for a woman’s right to choose to murder her baby, and what a difference an election makes; had Hillary won the Presidential election she would have continued Obama’s sanguineous...  Read More

If Special Counsel Robert Mueller is looking to find collusion between the Trump Campaign and the Russians – in the 2016 Presidential – it is may be that he is investigating the wrong candidate and the wrong campaign? About the time that Donald Trump was wrapping up the Republican nomination the Republican hedge-fund manager billionaire Paul Singer’s Washington Free Beacon stopped funding...  Read More

So Robert Mueller has brought charges against Paul Manafort, and Rick Gates, but the charges have nothing to do with the 2016 Presidential Campaign. Then there is a volunteer George Papadopoulos – he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about the time period in which he met with a Russian “Professor,” and subsequently tried to get people in the Trump campaign interested in the ostensible dirt the...  Read More

Wow, it looks like all the false narratives with which so many have been tagging POTUS Donald Trump are imploding. In their place will be the sound-of-crickets from the social-political Leftists that claimed such concern for the survival of the Republic because Donald Trump stole an election from Hillary Clinton. It turns out the collusion existed (dating back to 2009; Paul Manafort was a liaison...  Read More

This post was written back in June 2017, but was never posted @ bestthinking.com; we post it today because Andrew McCarthy's most recent articles at National Review online which very likely precipitated today's regarding investigations announced today (We will have a few comments about those articles and the investigations into Uranium One and the Obama, Clinton, Holder, Comey, Mueller and...  Read More

The kneeling protest demonstrations which NFL players feel compelled to perform seem to be harming the product which the NFL markets. At some point - if the protests continue, and more and more NFL fans become former fans – the NFL, as a business, will have to put-its-foot-down and make honoring the American flag and National Anthem a condition of employment. One would think – if the cause for...  Read More

Once upon a time, this writer was opposed to mandated military service for high-school graduates (note: an idea a bit popular in the Reagan era and beyond), but has begun to think such may be a good idea, given how so many social institutions e.g., family, Church, schools, boy-scouts, girl-scouts, etc. are doing such a poor job of producing a plethora of adults of moral character i.e.,...  Read More

There is precedent for the Government of the United States to investigate those things e.g., organizations, police-departments (investigating systematic racism via Obama’s unjust Department of Justice and his unjust AG Eric Holder), Universities (ostensible tolerance for campus sexual-assaults), US Military et al, which seem to either explicitly – or implicitly – promote or tolerate violations of...  Read More

Hillary Clinton - in a short interview (http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/hillary-clinton-compares-weinstein-to-trump/) - rejected comparisons between Bill Clinton and Harvey Weinstein but favored a comparison with Weinstein and POTUS Donald Trump. Hillary claims that Bill Clinton's affairs/actions were full-litigated in the 1990's, and thus the comparison should not be made, because - we...  Read More
