Update on America’s mental health

Earlier today, I mentioned that Patterico’s Pontifications is just about the only American political website I visit regularly these days. Here’s a representative sample of why that is the case: We will be featuring exclusively conservative and libertarian content. In other words, real news. Don’t miss the Bongino Report, coming very soon. πŸ‘‡πŸ»πŸ‘‡πŸ»https://t.co/j6JXXMznQM β€” Dan Bongino (@dbongino) November 27, 2019 Yeah! EXCLUSIVELY conservative...

And (hiding) in this corner…

pic.twitter.com/11nzKwOCtU β€” Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 27, 2019 A good look for Trump — it cleverly conceals his tiny hands. The real Rocky, of course, was a fictional boxer famous for fighting bravely against bigger, stronger, faster opponents (Apollo, Clubber, Drago) and finally defeating them all with his sheer will and courage β€” and then meekly carrying on with his simple life...

I lose (and I’m fine with that)

I, Daren Jonescu, hereby concede defeat in the Trump Wars. I sincerely believe that not one human being who was ever inclined to support Trump has had his head turned, or his rational faculty activated in the least, by anything I have ever written about Trump, or by all that I have written on the subject taken collectively. And none ever will. Tribalism...

In Mid-Fall

Fall colors are the Earth’s last desperate attempt to slow our descent into the white. The trees whisper, “If this is not enough to keep you here, then you may pass along; but know that you must never return this way again.” The leaves teach us, if we care to know, of the meaning of color and light. The prism of the body...

This is what evil sounds like, folks

Go ahead and tell me, as I’m sure many readers will want to do, that I’m too “obsessed” with my “irrational hatred” for President Trump. Go ahead and tell me I should stop focusing on his bluster, and look instead at the “booming economy.” In fact, I am not obsessed, and I do not hate Trump. But I know what evil sounds like....

A Plea to Friends Defending Trump

Here is Donald Trump’s latest wisdom addressing the current crackdown on those Hong Kong protesters lunging for one more gasp of air as the Chinese Communist Party slowly suffocates their last hopes of independence from the totalitarian behemoth. Trump: “We have to stand with Hong Kong, but I’m also standing with President Xi.” β€” Daniel Dale (@ddale8) November 22, 2019 A grand act...

Impeachment becomes psychological case study

The Chinese Whisper Game, which also goes by various other names, such as “Telephone,” goes like this: One person whispers some information to another. The hearer then whispers the information to a third person, the third to a fourth, and so on through an entire line of participants. At the end of the line, the final hearer announces the information, and everyone laughs...

South Korean defense in the hands of North Korean sympathizers

Yesterday came the news that Donald Trump and Moon Jae-in had cancelled joint military drills yet again, in an attempt to revive “peace talks” with Kim Jong Un. In other words, they were continuing the overt appeasement policy that has proven an abject failure every time it has ever been tried in dealing with any brutal tyranny, anywhere, ever. Moon plays this game...

Trump, Pompeo: The news behind the headlines

Apparently Donald Trump is turning his death stare (i.e., his tiny, twittering fingers) on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The official reporting is that this is a response to Pompeo’s lack of firmness in fighting the IMPEACHMENT HOAX.Β  This is a cover story, or a diversion from the real issue here. The sycophantic Pompeo has been everything Donald the Wonder Traitor ever wanted,...

Francis the Talking Fool, aka That Crazy Pontiff

Pope Francis, apparently envious of all the youth-baiting appeal of international Marxism’s prop du jour, teenage communist mouthpiece Greta Thunberg, is out there riding Greta’s coattails, declaring that the Catholic Church, of which he is ostensibly still a member, is actively considering changing the catechism to include “the sin against ecology,” or “ecological sin,” or — my favorite phrasing — “ecocide” as part...
