When he was 17 years old, Poldark creator Winston Graham moved to Perranporth, Cornwall, where he lived for 34 years. He had wanted to be a writer from an early age and, following the death of his father, he was supported by his mother while he wrote novels at home in longhand and attempted to get them published.

Friday is the inauguration, a moment which heralds the cornerstone of American democracy. This should thus be a time for unity and celebration. It’s been turned into a bile-laden battleground.

Andrea Bocelli backs out of singing at Trump’s inauguration after receiving death threats | Daily Mail Online


McCarthyism has nothing on the tactics of today’s American progressive-Left. The Presidential Inauguration is symbolic of the peaceful transition of power under our Constitutional Republic. To sully the process with threats against the livelihood or even murder of an entertainer who agrees to participate is beneath and beyond loathsome.

It is also disturbing that there are some conservatives calling for the boycott of entertainers who decline to perform. Be aware that there may be threats and other pressures against these people to which you are not privy. The Right need not stoop to the despicable tactics of the Left. Arm yourself with the arguments, and when possible, choose compassion.

As much as we don’t like being lectured about politics and political correctness by Meryl Streep and her ilk, keep in mind that in this highly charged politicized environment, every action or passive gesture is interpreted as taking a stand by someone on one side of the aisle or the other. ~ Art/Right

Gad Elbaz: An Israeli in Paris

Kudos to Gad Elbaz, the Israeli singer, for lighting up the streets of Paris in song, dance and joy. Mr. Elbaz released his video, Hava Nagila, on March 15, 2015, just over two months after the inglorious attacks against life, free speech and free religion at the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo, the French satirical magazine, and at Hyper Cacher, the kosher supermarket. This is also the same day that Hyper Cacher reopened for business since the attacks.

LA Street Posters Inspired by Sabo

On Wednesday, July 23, 2014, when President Barack Obama was in Southern California on yet another fund-raising junket to benefit his fellow Democrat politicians, he may have seen bus stops decorated with posters adorned with his face. These were not the Obama Hope posters designed by Shepard Fairey that became icons of the 2008 presidential campaign. These new posters appearing in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood of Hancock Park were inspired by street artist Sabo, a retired Marine- turned guerilla artist. Instead of the optimistic fantasy of the Hope posters, these images were starkly urban and reflective of today’s actual scandals and multitude of unresolved issues plaguing America under the Obama Administration’s myopic leadership.
