The Conservative Monitor has been on the web since 1997. We have had many permutations, not all of them pretty (see one of my first commentaries on the Kyoto Treaty). You are looking at the latest, stripped-down version.
Our mission is to educate and explain. We try not to be too shrill, but sometimes when the crowded theater is burning someone has to shout, “FIRE – Run for your lives!”
I am the founder and current publisher, W.J. Rayment. My original idea was to create a clearing house for news and views. The website is also the house organ for the Conservative Bookstore. The site has performed this function admirably.
There has been considerable effort not to merely rehash the same old information that is delivered wholesale and retail over the airwaves and in other areas of the web. My aim has been, and continues to be, to focus on the cultural angle. We do book reviews, social commentaries, and handle the occasional death threat. Of course, I do feel compelled to discuss current issues as they become pressing.
Thanks for your interest.
