Goodies From Ol' Remus


Wim Aalast explains Leighton's "God Speed" at The Epoch Times, 2012:
"In the scene, a knight clad in armor and ready to depart to war is leaving his beloved. She ties a red sash around his arm, which he is meant to return. This medieval custom—a superstition if you will—assured both parties that they would be reunited, alive and well. A griffin, symbol of strength and military courage, adorns the banister of the stairs that separate the couple".
Leighton was 47 when he painted God Speed, perhaps the best known of his medieval themed works. He lived until 1922. 


Francis Porretto offers this, in his essay, From The “You Will Be Made To Care” Files, at Liberty's Torch:
Leyden and Teixeira might eventually regret having stated their core position... It’s time we took them at their word. We in the Right must resolve to fight as they do: a outrance. There are no longer any rules. There certainly isn’t a threshold of incivility or cruelty that anyone need respect.
Vox Popoli takes a wider view in his essay, Physiognomy is more than real, at his blog:
So many people fail to understand that when I say the Alt-Right is inevitable, I am not merely engaging in rhetoric. I mean that quite literally and I am speaking in unvarnished dialectic. Just as communism is unviable because it denies economics and feminism is unviable because it denies biology, conservatism is unviable because it denies inequality. All of these unviable political identities have set themselves against science, history, and observable reality. Remember, the red pill is reality.

 Greenfield, Front Page - Political operatives have now seized privileged communications between the President of the United States and his lawyer. Despite fairy tales about a clean process, these communications will be harvested by the counterparts of Peter Strzok, who unlike him are still on the case at the FBI, some of it will appear in the Washington Post and the New York Times, and some will be passed along to other political allies. The DOJ is the bluntest weapon in the D.C. arsenal and for the first time it’s been completely unleashed to undo the results of a presidential election. When control of the DOJ and FBI matters more than elections, then voters will be irrelevant and the Praetorian of D.C. will rule.


  1. Hi Brock,
    Anyone who thinks,"This is a Country of Laws Not of Men" is still right!! Those who have overstepped those bounds are not "MEN!!!" Men don't do things like that... Traitors do... "Classically" back when I was a kid, 'Ol Wald did a program on the life of Davey Crockett and culminated in his demise at "The Alamo!!!" When given the ultimatum "Surrender or die" by Santa Ana, Col. Travis with his boot heel "Made a line in the sand" , ...'told those present, "You're with me, step over the line!!" "Everyone knowing that their hours were numbered crossed over!!" The rest is "History,"... "Don't Mess with TEXAS!!!!,
    Anyway, that was a few years ago ... a lot of water under the bridge ,... and today.. well,... LOOK AROUND!!,
    Back on 17APR2017 I have a note I kept, a "Reply to "Zak Da' Hak" on a (fb) post by "Claudia"

    1. About the same when I was growing up. Wish I could do it again.:)

  2. Thank you for posting that fine painting, with its title and artist.

    When seeking the highest resolution for my collection, I also found six other similar paintings by the same artist, which I've also downloaded and saved.
