Why We Prayed at the Statue of St. Louis IX, King of France
June 27, 2020
Our purpose in holding this Rosary event at the statue of St. Louis was to satisfy the two greatest commandments: to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves. To that end, we prayed equally for everyone present at the event: For those who attacked us and called us names For those who falsely accused us of being in the KKK For those on both sides of the issues who came to provoke the other side For those police officers who donned riot gear on a hot, humid day to keep us all safe For those who came out to pray For all of them, we prayed to God that He softens our hearts and fills our souls with gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Let Us Pray at the Statue of St. Louis in Forest Park Saturday
June 26, 2020
By the grace of God, Jim Hoft, the Gateway Pundit, has called all Catholic Christian men to pray the Rosary at the statue of St. Louis IX, King of France, on Art Hill in Forest Park at Noon on Saturday, June 28, 2020. Please join us. If you cannot join us, please pray for us. Pray that our intentions align with the will of God, that we do nothing out of vainglory or pride.

Mark Reardon for Mayor: Make St. Louis Fun Again
July 13, 2016
Nobody likes traffic, but St. Louis was built to hold a million people. And it once did, back in the days when Democrats and Republicans took turns being mayor. [Free Offer for Business Owners at Bottom] (read the small print) Now, in this foul year of our Lord twenty-sixteen, just over 300,000 people call the city home. A 70 percent decline! And I’m not one of them. For several reasons that no reasonable person could argue with.
St. Louis Uber Nada
July 5, 2015
About this time, a variety of railroads began trying to build their own networks to the West, but the St. Louis city government refused to grant the permits required for constructing railroad bridges across the river at their location, even though St. Louis was the logical choice and would have been a perfect place for a rail hub. Apparently, the politicians in St. Louis felt their duty was to protect the riverboat industry, at that time their life and blood, from any and all competition.
Take a Walk on the Hedonic Treadmill
June 17, 2015
Here’s what happens when you raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, according to scientists: Nothing. Well, not nothing. All kinds of bad things happen to the economy. But nothing happens for two groups of people central to the whole debate: workers who get a bump to $15 and employers who have to bump to $15 an hour. Most cities and states that have raised their minimum wage laws to $15 will phase in the increase over five years.
How Crony Capitalism Spreads Bureaucracy
June 23, 2014
St. Louisan Eric Greitens did more before graduating from college than most people do in a lifetime. And, as if to insult us all, after college, Eric became a Navy SEAL. In his remarkable book, The Heart and the Fist: The education of a humanitarian, the making of a Navy SEAL , Greitens tells the story of a man who seems too good to be true. Seriously. And the book left me with two big impressions–probably the wrong ones, but that’s how I am.

Life As You’ve Known It Is About To Change
November 3, 2012
You have a choice. You can drive that change, or you can be swallowed by it. In a free society, people have liberty to do anything except a few prohibited things. In a totalitarian society, people have liberty to do nothing except a few permitted things. In a free society, the people have a black list of things they must not do, and government has a white of a few things it may do.
St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners Proves Government Can’t Get Anything Right
October 5, 2012
Conservatives love cracking on government and its unintended consequences. How often does a government initiative give us backassward results? Exhibit A: Obama hands Solyndra millions in tax dollars to promote green energy. Solyndra (and numerous other green energy grant recipients) goes bankrupt. Another example is the St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners. In 1861, Missouri’s legislature created a board of commissioners to oversee the St. Louis Police Department. Why? Because Missouri was a slave state, but St.
St. Louis Police Department Is Crumbling, But You Can Vote to Save It
October 2, 2012
You get the feeling that Rex Sinquefield holds a grudge against his home state, and he’s using some of his fortune to punish us. Rex gave a quarter million dollars to Obama’s Lawyer, Chris Koster. But that wasn’t his first assault on us. Rex’s war against the St. Louis Police Department is older and far more bitter. Rex wants to force the state to surrender the Board of Police Commissioners for St.
SOTUday Night Fever on KSDK 5
January 25, 2011
I’ll participate on KSDK Channel 5’s post-SOTU discussion panel Tuesday following the State of the Union speech. (I being Bill Hennessy, in case you’re reading this from a news feed.) I don’t know who my fellow panelists will be, but I think it’s pretty cool that a local network invited a tea partier to help break down the President’s State of the Union speech. The speech starts at 8:00 p.m. CT Tuesday, January 25 on KSDK 5.
Why You Should Come to St. Louis If You Can’t Drive to the Beach
September 5, 2010
Yes, there are three major Tea Party events on 9-12: Washington, Sacramento, and St. Louis. But if you can’t see the Atlantic or the Pacific from your window, why don’t you make the trip to the middle of the country, to the “Gateway to November” Tea Party under the Arch? I’m hearing from groups in Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Iowa, and many from Illinois and Kansas who CANNOT WAIT for the 9-12 “Gateway to November” Tea Party in St.
How We've Made a Difference
July 10, 2010
When you give over most of your private time to a cause, you need some feedback. We got some from former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan on Friday: The Summer of the Angry Mob [caption id=”” align="aligncenter” width="521” caption="Dana’s Famous ‘Meet the Mob’ Blog”][/caption] Ms. Noonan reflected on the Townhall Revolt which began in St. Louis one year ago. Writes Noonan: When Rep. Russ Carnahan held a town hall meeting at a community college in Missouri on July 20, he tried patiently to explain that ObamaCare not only would be deficit-neutral, it would save money.

A Long, Hot Day in St. Louis
August 17, 2007
This morning, I heard the news of the murder of a young police officer. Officer Norvelle Brown, only 22 years old and a rookie cop, made St. Louis headlines for the second time in his short career–his short, honorable life. In April, Officer Brown responded to a hostage situation during a barber shop robber, defusing the situation and apprehending the armed robbers. He and another officer received citations for that action.
