Alabama vs. Oklahoma Tonight

  Did you know that tonight’s national championship semifinal between Alabama and Oklahoma will match the two best quarterbacks in the country? Seldom do a Heisman winner and his runner-up meet after the winner is crowned. Even given that rarity, this may be the best postseason clash of college quarterbacks we’ve ever seen. Both are […]

The Devil’s in Alabama

  Yes, I know Charlie Daniels said the devil went down to Georgia, but that was years ago, and he’s been headed west since then: An Alabama police department has been criticized for blaming recent violence on the community ‘rejecting god and embracing Satan’. The post from the Opp Police Department comes as two gunshot […]

‘The Bible and the Belt’

  The University of Alabama won the SEC football title Saturday night. If you listen to this week’s episode of The Other Podcast, you’ll find me interrupting the political commentary to give updates. It was a huge gut-check for the Crimson Tide. The undefeated national champions trailed 28-14 before Tua Tagovailoa threw a 51-yard touchdown […]

Alabama Wins National Title 26-23

  Tonight I told my 19-year-old son Jeff, “You’ll tell your grandchildren about this game. You’ll tell them you watched this game with your Dad.” It was insane.

The Incorruptible Roy Moore Wins

  No man in American political life has suffered more than Roy Moore for his devotion to firm principle. He was harassed by the ACLU, purged from his office as chief justice of the state Supreme Court, and suspended again after he successfully campaigned for re-election. All of this he suffered because of his belief […]

#RollTide: ’Bama Wins Everything!

Yesterday, Donald Douglas tweeted me a USA Today story about Alabama being ranked No. 2 in their preseason football poll. It so happens that my son Jeff will be attending Tuscaloosa in the fall. Inspired to write a column, my research turned up a few interesting facts: Spoiled brats at elite private colleges sure do […]

Harvard Law Is Decadent and Depraved

  Have you ever heard of Isaac Royall Jr.? Me, neither, until I started reading about “Reclaim Harvard Law,” an anti-white protest group at Harvard University Law School. Earlier this year, Harvard’s administration surrendered to an unruly mob of student grievance-mongers who had demanded that the official seal of the Law School be changed to […]
