I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Quote of the Day

Quote Of The Day - Amazing Grasp Of The Obvious Edition
Daniel Larison:
The belief that voting the Republican ticket into office has anything to do with saving “the republic” (as Spengler puts it) is delusional. That’s not because there are no dangers to constitutional republican government from executive overreach now, but because these candidates aren’t the least bit concerned about executive power grabs or illegal warfare. If you think there is a danger to the republic from the executive abusing its power, voting for Romney isn’t a remedy. It’s an invitation for more of the same from the other party. Reining in the executive will require pressure from the public and a rediscovery by Congress of its responsibilities to check the executive. As a general rule, no one elected to the Presidency is going to curtail the powers of the executive branch voluntarily.
It's called the slippery slope.

  1. Spengler is a zionist neocon shill who masquerades as a moderate. He soft-soaps the pro-Israel agenda.
