Latest musings, analyses, and general madness

Boys Will Be Boys in the White House

CNN is reporting breathlessly that an argument — yes, believe it or not, a real shouting match — broke out in the West Wing of the White House Thursday.  A heated argument in the West Wing between chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton over a recent surge in border crossings turned into a shouting match Thursday, two sources...

China “Disappears” Interpol President, World Yawns

Last week, I wrote about the peculiar story of Interpol president Meng Hongwei, a high ranking member of the Chinese Communist Party, who had suddenly disappeared after sending not-so-cryptic messages to his wife indicating he was in danger. As suspected, he is being detained in China, and the communists have indicated only that he is “under the monitoring and investigation” of China’s new...

Elizabeth Warren Solves America’s Race Problem Forever

  Elizabeth Warren lied about her ethnic heritage throughout her academic career, repeatedly and obviously seeking personal and professional (and later political) advantage by claiming to be Native American — or as Harvard Law School boasted of her, its “first woman of color.” Now, in perhaps the greatest fit of accidental genius in the history of idiocy, Warren has tried to verify her...

Economics vs. Astrology

Recently, in reply to my post about the mainstream media’s coverage of hurricanes and other severe weather events, a great friend commented that the climate experts, with their diatribes about “unprecedented” and “historic” weather, are analogous to economists, who build their reputations on pretending to be able to explain the “unexpected” ebbs and flows of the market — as opposed to real experts...

Weekend Reflections: Death, the Soul, the Stars

The following pictures were taken during a recent daytrip to Tongyeong, Korea, sometimes referred to as “the Naples of Korea.” As the town is highly photogenic, these pictures do not really require any comment or explanation. Instead, therefore, I have chosen to let the images comment on or explain me, as it were. The one exception is the final picture, for which I...

Unprecedented Severe Weather

A Category 4 hurricane has hit Florida. This, like all weather of any kind, is being reported in the mass media, and filtered through the minds of ordinary people everywhere, as an unprecedented, unthinkable, ominous event, and surely all the evidence you need, if you’re not just a pig-headed capitalist big-oil-owned monster, that anthropogenic climate change is REAL! As ABC News reports (to...

The Tribunal Digs In

Recently, I have had frequent occasion to discuss the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist tribunal mentality that American progressives are invoking on a regular basis in their latest attempt to push the United States one fateful step closer to the one-party communist rule they clearly long for — though they will always laugh at you (a little too loud, methinks) for noting this longing. I call it...

Prairie Fire

Hillary Clinton, like all progressives, is projecting her own hatred and radicalism onto her opponents, claiming that communists (whom she still quaintly insists on calling “Democrats”) would certainly be civil if they could, but that civility simply is not possible as long as Republicans remain in power. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for,...

Political Correctness: The Moron Files

Ages ago, Howard Cosell used the common old-timer’s phrase “little monkey” to describe an NFL wide receiver who was quick and agile. Unfortunately, that receiver also happened to be of a certain race that fake-sensitive white progressives are just sure needs to be protected from old-fashioned compliments that might seem, to complete morons like themselves, to imply a racial stereotype. Ask those fake-sensitive...

China Today, The Rest of Us Tomorrow

I offer a brief, simple glimpse into your future, our future, the advanced world’s future — the near future. The Chinese president of Interpol — yes, the president of the famed international police agency is a member of the Chinese Communist Party — has officially “resigned, with immediate effect,” weeks after sending his wife an image of a knife on an Interpol phone,...
