Newsflash: Trump Utters Outrageous Falsehood

So President Trump, defending himself against the non-fake news that he had not contacted any of the families of the American servicemen killed in Niger, answered by adding yet more flotsam to the endless stream of falsehood that magically emanates from his teeny weeny brain, claiming to be pretty much the only President who has ever called military families. In...

Trump vs. Obamacare

Donald Trump certainly wants to repeal Obamacare. He would have to hate it, if for no other reason than that, not realizing “Obamacare” is only a nickname, he would be ticked that the nation’s health care law has another president’s name attached to it. And that pretty much defines his “plan”: repeal the name, and rechristen the law “Trumpcare.” His...

School Coach Branded Racist For Calling Thugs “Thugs”

Imagine if behind every little thug, there were larger, stronger thugs ready to defend those little thugs against criticism or correction. In this situation, thuggery would always grow, and all defense against it would be futile, until at last most people would  just give up and either join the thugs or hide quietly in their corners all their lives. This...

God vs. Private Property?

My article, “Hysterical Christian-Haters for Property Rights” got a fair amount of attention from people craving some kind of rational conversation about that lynchpin issue of modern liberty — property rights, that is, not Christian-hating. Every time I write about property, however, there are always a few holier-than-thou progressives lurking in the weeds to say, “But Christianity is against private...

Hysterical Christian-Haters for Property Rights

A homosexual coffee shop owner with an angry mind, a foul mouth, and at least a few screws loose, has done Christian conservatives the favor of a lifetime, making the case for a businessman’s private property rights against the progressive oppression of anti-discrimination laws more eloquently — well, at least more bluntly — than any Christian business owner could make...

Pooh’s Honey Pot

I awoke today with many things on my mind, things I wanted to write about: why I like homosexual café owners kicking out Christians; how yellow people see themselves in a world where “yellow people” is a description, not a hate crime; and why Milan Kundera was right about Eden, “where doing nothing was not boring — it was peace.”...

Trump Telegraphs North Korea Strike

In a pair of tweets comprising a thought more coherent and rhythmical than usual, and containing only a couple of grammatical and structural errors — indicating that it was likely approved or worked over by his circus handlers — President Trump has just announced an imminent military strike on North Korea. More coherent and grammatical than usual, but no wiser....

Why Do I Keep Calling Them “Progressives”?

As expected, my recent American Thinker article, “The Progressive Psychology of Exploiting a Crisis,” garnered many harrumphs from readers insisting that I stop using that danged lyin’ word, “progressive,” when the people I’m referring to are actually “regressives,” communists, or socialists who don’t promote progress at all! Sorry, but I’m sticking to my guns here — and here’s why. “Progressive”...

Missing the Point About Psych Meds and Killing

Many online have responded to reports that Las Vegas shooter What’s-his-name had been using prescription anti-anxiety medication by shouting “Don’t make excuses for evil!” As if asking about the possible role of these medications in his moral decision-making were an attempt to absolve him of culpability. Or as if it were tantamount to saying “The medicine committed the crime.” False....

Las Vegas Shooter on Anxiety Medication

No surprise here, but Right Scoop is reporting that Stephen Paddock, the outwardly normal, reasonably successful man who decided to carry out the worst mass shooting in American history, was on prescription medication for anxiety. Not only no surprise, but in fact I would have been surprised to learn that he hadn’t been on some such emotion-modifying prescription drug.  Due...
