Robert Jacques, The Republican Gun, Sniping lies with magnum honesty

The Republican Gun

Its Aims, Range and Targets

The Republican Gun is a straight-shooting informal philosophical commentary on contemporary politics, economics, society, religion and art.  It sights in on the world-transforming American republic by addressing fundamental issues with discussion and analysis, and by providing answers with laughter and happiness.  Ample references to the meaning of life and humanity are included, as is the universe whenever that place happens to be useful.

The Republican Gun then targets public fraud — long faces — socialist losers — uncivil violence — and ideological BS.

The Republican Gun scopes out ideological camouflage of all kinds, and puts its crosshairs on even the cleverest of conceptual deceptions.

The Republic Gun is proud to be sponsored by the following classical brands of hard-hitting ammunition:

Aletheia

Veritas

Wahrheit

Truth

The Republican Gun is your sniper of lies — with magnum honesty!  And we take no prisoners.

Join up with The Republican Gun and see the world!  The universe is our border.

Ready on the right?  Ready on the left?  Ready in the center?  Then let’s lock and load and —

 Talk!

Within The Republican Gun you will find discussions on varied philosophical, political and social subjects present in the world, historical events that shaped current affairs and potential future ramifications caused by the lot.

Originally inspired by email communications between Dr. Jacques and a student & protégé, the Gun has evolved into living growing entity involving new students, new followers and lovers of truth. Follow, even participate if you like, as Reality unfolds.

All the Presidents’ Representations

All the Presidents’ Representations

It seems to me that I might have once read a book possibly entitled The Dark Side of Camelot maybe by Seymour M. Hersh plausibly published under the imprint of Back Bay Books tentatively by Little, Brown and Company putatively in the year 1997. That book reminds me of...

All the President’s Enemies

On August 16, 1971, John Dean sent a memorandum to Lawrence Higby.  Both Dean and Higby were players within the Nixon Administration at the time, as Dean was the White House Counsel and Higby was an assistant to the White House Chief of Staff, H. R. Haldeman.  Printed...

How to Think with Words

The power of words to form and formulate the ideas by which we humans see the world with the taxonomy of our concepts can be disregarded in the same way bad eyesight can be left uncorrected.  But the absurdity of the latter in a techno-affluent culture is so patent,...

Trump Talks English!

Due to the more conversational and spontaneous aspects of The Republican Gun, the readers are often treated to a bit of, as I like to call it, “inside baseball”; a look behind the scenes at the writing process and our ordinary lives.  So, yes, as you mentioned in your...

Democracy is Socialism

While you’re in the midst of moving, I thought I’d catch up on a few back items which my current reading has brought to mind. At the beginning of a recent post, you referred to a poet named Ruth Stone who, appropriately enough, with a metaphor said if you see a fast...

Beliefs and Biases

A question that was posed in your previous entry forced me to look inward, and take an introspective exploration of my own beliefs and biases.  In relation to the removal of illegal immigrants from the United States, I started thinking about the similarities between...

The Wall is a Dike

If you’re bothered by the royal family of Britain now, you should have been alive — I mean an adult:  a being of passion reason — when Shy Di was regular news in the major media, and permanent news in the grocery tabloids.  I should know.  I’m very fond of food.  And...

Trump Builds Obama’s Wall

In an effort to stay solely focused on the topic of free speech in my last bit of writing, I neglected another point I wished to address.  So, I’d like to gather up that free-floating thought before it’s swept away, never to be remembered.  The American poet Ruth...

What is Conservative?  Not Republican!

What is Conservative? Not Republican!

First, let me address a few of the topics left over from last time, then I’ll consider your fearsome fears concerning Attila the Trump.  But first I will admire your phrase, “in contempt of conversation.”  It’s a great description of the loud silence that most...

Conservatives, Cultural Fossils?

Conservatives, Cultural Fossils?

I’d first like to speak to my previous thoughts on the likes of groups such as white nationalists and ultraconservative Muslims. While I do still hold to my conclusion that the main thrusts of these two ideological groups are in opposition to what I see as the core...

Republican Fun with Aristocrats and Socialists

Republican Fun with Aristocrats and Socialists

This just in. I’ve been lately reading around in a large volume of the late Christopher Hitchens’ essays entitled Arguably, which is arguably not a title.  But since Chris isn’t here anymore, I won’t argue with him.  The dead deserve the dignity of a decent repose. ...

Likable, Consistent Uncle Bernie

Even in the most well-planned and thought out conversations – especially of the political variety – the constant passion-fueled flow of ideas, rebuttals, and agreements take the discussion into places that weren’t initially accounted for.  If you add in the fact that...

America the Real

America the Real

Conversation is like gliding.  In both activities, you look for thermals — or hot air! — upon which to get a lift.  When you succeed, you get taken by the rise.  And then you soon lose sight of any intention except, that is, to return eventually the place you began...

Who Is America For

Who Is America For

The question of “who is America for?” has long been a debate between the various groups that assert themselves as the true sentinels of the American heart and soul. White nationalists claim the United States belongs to white Euro-Americans, for the “purest country”...

State of the Nation’s Nationalism

I like the manner of your realization and the fortitude of your acknowledgement:  that you’d rationally acted no differently than your contemporaries in buying a political product on the basis of branding consciousness.  Like, ‘Oh, yeah, I like her ideas!  Her ads are...
