Read The Case Against Public Education Now!

German thought had been edging toward a systematic rejection of the traditional understanding of human nature for some years before anyone had manifested the combination of profound intellect and profound megalomania needed to conceive of an effective way of bringing these radical ideas down from the ivory tower, and into the practical life of a nation. The man who finally...

Trump Reveals Jewish Conspiracy!

Finally, thanks to the “tear-it-down” forthrightness of Donald Trump, we have confirmation that global events of this age are all being manipulated and stage-managed from behind the curtain by a massive Jewish conspiracy. This is why the establishment feared him: they knew he would storm into the nerve center of the global Jewish cabal and tell the truth about what he found....

Poor, Unfulfilled Donald

Donald Trump is apparently convinced that “no politician in history…has been treated worse or more unfairly.” His followers, likewise, are convinced he is being illegitimately blocked, thwarted, stymied in his efforts to “make America great again.” The reason he can’t get things done, they insist, is that he is being restrained and resisted as no president has ever been restrained...

MLB Hopes to Shrink Balls

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar has been suspended for two games for shouting an “anti-gay slur” at Atlanta Braves pitcher Jason Motte during an angry outburst. In other words, he used a word — which apparently is now officially and for all progressive time “the f-word,” equivalent to “the n-word” — to attack the masculinity of another player, on...

Reports on Mothers and Their Influence

Offering my personal Mother’s Day wishes to my own mom here on my website would make me feel a little like those men who ask someone to marry them by means of a skywriter during the seventh inning stretch at a baseball stadium — that is, one so desperate to impress himself that he forsakes personal feeling for public performance, sincere expression for...

South Korea Lurching Blindly Left

On Tuesday, May 9, the Republic of Korea will elect a new president. All signs indicate that the next president will be a socialist, after a decade of governance by the country’s relatively conservative party — a party which, in a desperate attempt to save itself from being tarred with President Park Geun-hye’s recent impeachment, has tellingly rebranded itself as...

Trump’s Disdain for American Health Care

In response to my recent post, “Trump and Krauthammer: Brothers in Progressive Fraud,” in which I mention President Trump’s recent tweet declaring that “everybody” has better health care than America, a dear friend, Dr. William Meisler, sent me the following: When I first read about Trump’s tweet concerning American health care, I immediately said to myself, “What an absolute fool...

Trump and Krauthammer: Brothers in Progressive Fraud

The House of Representatives’ Obamacare reform bill accomplishes exactly one significant thing: It makes the pathway to single-payer healthcare in America an official Republican talking point, rather than the exclusively Democratic issue it has hitherto been, at least beyond closed doors. Yes, the cat is out of the bag. The GOP is now, openly, America’s moderate voice for socialism. An over-the-top charge, you say? Well,...

TrumpCare Symbolic of History’s Progressive Ratchet

Once again, the American political center has been shifted leftward, as a Republican President and Congress have demonstrated their principled opposition to a progressive program by promising to keep half of it forever. The House has passed, and President Trump signed, what Right Scoop accurately calls an “Obamacare reform package.” Not the promised repeal, and not even a dubious “replacement,” but...

North Korea and the Problem of Twitter Foreign Policy

North Korea has tested another ballistic missile, once again failing (but undoubtedly learning from the failure). In response, Donald Trump, the Global Crusader of Convenience, has mounted his trusty steed — well, mouse — and tweeted out another of his toothless sound bites, continuing his one-man mission to prove that while the pen may be mightier than the sword, any butter...
