Lies, Damned Lies, and Trumpspeak

To continue a theme of recent days, it turns out that Donald Trump never really “pulled out” of the Paris Climate Accord, as he boasted, but was merely looking for a “better deal” for Americans as a condition for “rejoining” the agreement (as if you can rejoin what has never been put asunder). In other words, Trump lied. Let’s have...

New Yorker Sends America to the Black Lodge

Among the weirder conceits of the once charming, now aggressively meaningless TV drama Twin Peaks, is the deus ex machina of the Black Lodge, a place of mock native legend, where people confront their own darkest fears, or meet doppelgängers who will live out alternative versions of their lives. The New Yorker has just sent America to the Black Lodge....

Trump Creates New Thing to Break

Donald Trump has just sealed the deal — a big, beautiful deal I’m sure — on the future of health care in America. Specifically, he has made a solemn promise to veto the single payer health care bill Bernie Sanders is proposing. That’s Trumpspeak for “Some form of quasi-single payer health care will be signed into law during my presidency.”...

Red Line Recedes In Rear View Mirror

As I noted at the time, Donald Trump’s Obama-esque “red line” on North Korea has painted the U.S. into an absurd strategic corner. By carelessly threatening fire and fury if North Korea should so much as “utter a threat” against America and her allies — which he simultaneously acknowledged they have been doing for years — Trump set himself up...

America To Surge Left During Trump Years

Donald Trump’s caving to Democrats over the debt ceiling will be the first in a string of ingenious “deals” the New York values President will strike with his long-time leftist friends. By the end of his great swamp-draining presidency, he will have ended any hope of saving the United States from bankruptcy, full-blown socialized medicine, and amnesty for illegals. I...

Neil deGrasse Tyson “Destroys” Climate Denial!

A fabulous example of the circular reasoning of climate change “consensus” appears via leftist propaganda machine Yahoo News. The headline smugly declares that popular scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson “destroys climate change deniers’ favorite argument in 1 tweet.” Quite a claim, on multiple fronts! “Destroys.” “Favorite argument.” “1 tweet.” Imagine that: scientific debates resolved by sound bites. The condescension is mesmerizing!...

Irma Proves Global Warmists Are Real

If you needed more evidence that progressivism is engendering a new dark age, you need look no further than the renewed preponderance and popular influence of cults. Indoctrinated nihilists, having rejected all purpose and truth in the universe, are filling the void of meaning in their lives by grasping with equal irrationality at tyrannical Utopias, demigod idols, and doomsday theories....

Mark Levin Discovers the Obvious

Mark Levin, who has twisted himself into a sadder pretzel than any other conservative media celebrity in trying to maintain his integrity while defending the anti-American fraud that is Donald Trump, apparently noticed it was the Friday after a full moon, and therefore his scheduled time to discover yet again that Trump has “sold us out.” According to Levin, who...

Believe Half of What I Say

The key to being the ideal sucker for a two-bit carnival barker is to want to believe him so badly that you are prepared to block your own ears to the second half of everything he says, so as to avoid facing the contradictions, the ugly revelations, and the not-so-hidden meanings behind the half you wanted to hear. Thus, for...

What Won’t a Cultist Swallow?

I recently noted the psychological projection demonstrated by “New Trumper” cultists like Roger Kimball and Dennis Prager, who wonder aloud how much greater Donald Trump has to make America before the “NeverTrumpers” finally come around and acknowledge him as the Second Coming, or perhaps something even more unique than that. Let’s turn the question back on them, where it belongs:...
