From Russia With Love

My grandfather, George Moriarty, first played for Chicago.

No, he didn’t field for the Chicago White Sox, a team that eventually became known as the infamous Chicago Black Sox.

He played for the Chicago Cubs. That baseball team hired my grandfather right off the sandlots of The Toddlin’ Town’s very, very tough and very, very Irish South Side.

“Big George”, as we used to call him, then went on to play with the New York Highlanders – which later became the New York Yankees – and then he settled down for most of his playing career with the Detroit Tigers.

There he became that team’s best third baseman … until George Kell, that is.

My Grandfather

My grandfather really couldn’t hit all that well. Never broke a seasonal .300.
But what a base stealer!!

Stole home more times in one season than anyone in baseball history … including Ty Cobb.

Well, at least that’s what my father said he did.


was written about him.

The film, Gangs of New York, wasn’t all that different from gangs of Chicago.


You had to know how to fight or you weren’t going to last long.

You certainly couldn’t survive in the American Big League Anything if you batted under .300.

Unless you knew how to protect the better hitters.

I played a hockey “Goon” in television’s Deadliest Season. I was there on the ice to do nothing more than “intimidate.”

Things get a little out of hand and my character kills another player on the ice.

Bang The Drum Slowly was almost exactly the opposite message from my grandfather’s life and the lessons of The Deadliest Season: Protect the wounded and the infirm and you’ll build team spirit.

Another baseball film, Field of Dreams, preaches a much more profoundly Liberal sermon than Bang The Drum Slowly.

Field of Dreams is not only more palatably radical than any other American baseball film but more heart-warmingly revolutionary than any other American film in recent history.

It basically echoes a breathtaking philosophic position that the writer Gary Wills offered us regarding the New Testament’s Judas:

Gary Wills, another version of a Christian contradiction-in-terms, a Catholic Progressive – along with Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi – has been trying to canonize Judas for quite some time, exalt him as the most Christ-like of characters, this side of Christ Himself.

Judas performed the job he had to perform and, therefore, he was doing God’s Will.

“He was only doing his job!”

Judas deserves to be honored for that.

“A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do!”

Kind of.

Field of Dreams is a beautifully made film of forgiveness and reconciliation … for everyone.

It is ultimately everyone’s field of dreams in everyone’s most childlike reveries.

According to this film, we all, good-bad-or-indiffently-evil, end up in heaven, even every member of the undeniably but poignantly corrupt Chicago Black Sox.

Kind of.

There is still, however, the last, big time I noticed a dividing line between the good and the evil.

Between, say Joseph Stalin and Winston Churchill.

Then why did President Barack Hussein Obama send a gift from the Queen of England – a bust of Winston Churchill – why did he send that bust back to London?!

And why did he promise Vladimir Putin of neo-Soviet Russia that he would be more “flexible” when he’s re-elected?

Barack Obama must be a fan of something other than the World War II Free World.

He’s not only a fan and booster but a major creator of what we now know of as “The Progressive New World Order.”

Imagine a film wherein the victims of Stalinist oppression, relatives of the executed and worked to death, played soccer with Nikita Khrushchev?

“All is forgiven!”

Of course, a few cheating baseball players in Field of Dreams are hardly the Red Army.

Dreams are the heart of an inevitably worldwide conflict; and since conflict is the heart of drama, let’s examine The Fields of Everyone’s Dreams.

President Barack Hussein Obama dreams of a “fundamental transformation of the United States of America”.

It’s all there in great detail within his tribute to his family, Dreams For My Father.


He, however, is not the only one working on this.

Guess what?

The Progressive “New World Order” was most noticeably announced by George Bush Sr.

A kinder gentler America” was,
I believe,
how Bush expressed
his own “field of dreams.”

Eventually this New World Order just had to necessitate “the fundamental transformation of the United States of America.”

What better way to begin it than by having George Bush Jr. put America into its biggest debt until, of course, Barack Hussein Obama showed up and tripled that same, record-breaking bankruptcy.


A Field of Dreams called the New World Order cannot be achieved without a “fundamental transformation of the United States.”

What easier and simpler way to do that than by putting America into a debt that she cannot possibly extricate herself from?

A field of dreams called The New World Order will take “strong medicine” in order to transform life on earth into the very heaven we experience in the film Field of Dreams.

American debt is that “strong medicine”.

Aside from suicidal, American debt, what is the main ingredient for creating The New World Order?


Apparently our feelings about the Soviet Union and Red China are the main obstacles to The New World Order’s Field of Dreams.

We are in for the Obama Nation’s prolonged “teachable moment.”

If we wholeheartedly forgive the Chicago Black Sox, put ourselves in heaven with them, then we can move on to forgiving the tyranny of Communism.

After the revelations of America’s self-loathing, plus the opening punches to American self-respect in the patronizing brilliance of what I call “naïve genius,” the New World Order will keep America soft, warm and gooey with Field of Dreams and Dreams For My Father until America welcomes her own death as a favor.

I’m in Canada watching all this while rooting for the Tea Party and leadership such as Allen West. All of which are an embarrassingly painful minority.

There is, however, the possibility of miracles.

If such miracles don’t happen and the Obama Nation is reinstated by reelection, all of Canada had better start praying for her own miracles. My new homeland is much easier “pickings” than the former greatest nation of the Free World, the United States of America.

Such death of individual freedom and responsibility is called “Progress”.

With the virulently expanding death by legalized abortion and euthanasia, I call it The New World Order’s Fourth Reich.

What does that mean?

The Progressively Digestible Survival of The Progressively Fittest.

Until then, with the expanding control of Big Government over everything, we’ll be fed the palatable pap, the heart-warming, end-of-the-film suicide of James Earl Jones.

His winningly and gently humorous dance into that heavenly field of corn?

Perhaps never to return alive?

But only as a ghost of his former self?

Death as merely an easily addictive field of dreams?

The Western World’s Judeo-Christian culture, largely inspired by the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations?

All to be melted away by a Progressively Marxist New World Order?

Forgiveness for everyone?

Including Judas, Mao and Joseph Stalin?

When will that happen?

When Hell freezes over and Heaven is a skating rink.
