The Bookworm Thinker for 22 Oct. 2021

Welcome, all, on this date of 22 Oct.  On this day:

741 A.D. — One of the pivotal figures in Western history, Charles “the hammer” Martel died on this day.  Martel had built an army to consolidate Frankish rule in Gaul (modern France).  His most famous engagement came at the Battle of Tours in 732 A.D. when Martel decisively defeated an invading Muslim army under Abd al-Rahman, saving Western Europe from Muslim conquest, at least until Euro neo-Marxists invited a second Muslim invasion in the 19th and 20th century to aid the neo-Marxist attack on Christianity and the foundations of Western civilization.

To give a sense of Baldwin’s hostility to gun rights, in 2018, the smug and constitutionally illiterate Baldwin had some harsh words for Dana Loesch, an NRA spokeswoman . . .

Biden exposes himself on national TV

Last night, CNN held an invitation-only “town hall” for Biden in Baltimore. The audience was beyond friendly, the questions were obviously vetted, and Anderson Cooper was there to hold Biden’s hand. And still, as the RNC’s Twitter feed reveals, Biden repeatedly showcased his weirdness, incipient dementia, inability to lead, and sheer heartlessness. No wonder only 27% of likely voters are confident that Brandon…er, Biden is up to the job. . . .
