Do Trump’s Judicial Nominees Fix Everything?

That faction within the Republican Party base that would like to think of itself as conservative while simultaneously giving its enthusiastic support to the least conservative Republican president ever, is in heaven today and feeling perfectly vindicated. Donald Trump has appointed a couple of conservative judges to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. That’s great — and underwhelming. The 5th...

Trump Loses Like Clockwork

Earlier today (Korean Time), I noted that in the wake of Luther Strange’s loss to Roy Moore in Alabama’s U.S. Senate primary runoff, Donald Trump would immediately begin dissociating himself from the fellow Mitch McConnell lackey he campaigned for. I even suggested one might start a pool to guess what time he would start his Twitter revisionism. Well, it’s begun....

Trump’s Ego Pummeled in Alabama…tee-hee

For a long time, I’ve been calling Trump The Orange McConnell — my answer to the baloney about Trump as an anti-establishment figure, when in fact he has been McConnell’s biggest booster, and one of his biggest donors, for years. A conservative friend once described Trump to me as “pure id.” Well, if he’s the id, McConnell is the ego. ...

GOP’s ObamaCare Makeover Fails

Gee, that’s too bad! So America will not get the wonderful new health care system designed by Lindsey Graham, an establishment RINO, and Bill Cassidy, who was a Louisiana Democrat until fifteen years ago. I mean I’m sure this Graham-Cassidy version of ObamaCare would have been a great “replacement” for the old version. If it had passed, then henceforth and...

Rules Explained: Taking a Knee

Taking a knee is a common play in football. It is usually performed near the end of a game or near halftime. The team possessing the ball (aka the “offensive team”), to protect a lead, may wish to run down the game clock without taking any risks that might jeopardize that lead, i.e., to kill or waste time — thereby...

North Korea Promises to Attack U.S.

Speaking from the same UN podium where Donald Trump recently allowed a public viewing of his third-grade literacy test (C+), another lunatic — in honor of his spiritual kin, the lovely and talented Baghdad Bob, let’s call this fellow Pyongyang Pete — has now officially submitted his Dear Leader’s most earnest request to be obliterated by B-1 bombers as soon...

Oops! Climate Cultist Destroys Own Position

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has been doing the leftist media interview circuit recently, pressing his peculiar thesis that professional (i.e., paid) scientists are a superior class of humans whose conclusions are intrinsically beyond reproach and must therefore be accepted blindly by unscientific lunks like you. In each of these interviews, a non-climate-scientist asks a series of pre-determined questions designed to...

Random Thoughts From the Front

An article at RedState by Streiff, who knows his military stuff, but is perhaps just a little too “into” a potential U.S. war with North Korea for my taste, suggests that the U.S. and other countries are making plans to evacuate their nationals in South Korea in the event of war. That may be a bit alarmist, as every country...

Trump Back to Admiring Tyrants

Loving and defending Vladimir Putin became awkward for Donald Trump when the allegations of Russian election interference picked up steam. Praising the leadership of Kim Jong-un became ridiculous when Kim started openly mocking the U.S. and promising to nuke Guam. Frankly, Trump, always a gushing admirer of political strong men and thugs, was running out of killers to praise. Thankfully,...

Why I Enjoyed Trump’s UN Speech

Okay, I did it. I finally took a deep breath, dimmed the lights on my brain, and clicked the “Play” button on Donald Trump’s UN speech. I can’t pretend that I listened with equal care to all forty-two minutes — I only have so many years left on this Earth — but I have to confess that I ended up...
