America: More Fool You

I have often said, of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, that the extent to which the Washington establishment now owns the souls of the American people may be measured by the fact that the supposed “two-party system” presented a choice between arguably the two worst human beings in the entire country, and almost every voter — a hundred and twenty-eight million adults —...

Understatement of the Year

Here is a current headline from the standard in Western journalism, The New York Times: “Doubts Linger as Democrats Vote: ‘I Don’t Think We Have a Perfect Candidate.’” If by “perfect,” the NYT and its doubters mean “someone who is not a blithering idiot,” then they do indeed have reason for doubt. If by “perfect,” they mean someone slightly less Marxist than the...

Biden Surge! Last-Chance Liz!

To the shock of absolutely no one who has ever watched a United States primary season unfold, there is a new poll, released in the last moments before Super Tuesday, showing that Joe Biden, who seems to have no idea where he is or to whom he is speaking at any given moment, and has no clear positions on anything, other than that...

Donnie vs. Bernie 2020: Two Visions of America

As a follow-up to my recent couple of posts related to Bernie Sanders’ surge, or momentum, or momentous surge, or whatever we are supposed to call it — I call it yet more evidence of the truth of everything I argued in The Case Against Public Education — I think it may be valuable to take a look at the real clash of...

The Dilemma Facing a Principled American

Patterico has a very good post at his blog today, examining both sides of the “Trump vs. the socialist” dynamic that is causing principled conservatives and constitutionalists in America to lose sleep as they look ahead to November 2020. For some time, he has been toying with the idea of voting for a Democrat (hopefully a “moderate” one) as a small stand against...

Bernie Sanders vs. The Democratic Establishment

The Democratic Party’s half of the Washington establishment is in knots over the strong primary season start by Bernie Sanders. They would apparently prefer to be represented in the 2020 presidential election by a senile compulsive-lying dimwit, a Harvard compulsive-lying leftist-of-convenience, a billionaire weenie who thinks the government ought to have the authority to restrict your sugar intake, or someone named Amy Klobuchar....

A New Yorker Knows

Now that Michael Bloomberg is being foisted upon Democratic primary voters as the establishment’s last stab at stopping the (more overtly) communist juggernaut, people are hearkening back to a supposedly tough comment he made a few years ago about his potential 2020 presidential rival Donald Trump: “I’m a New Yorker and I know a con when I see one.” As a commenter at...

Victory Lap for Tyranny

In the wake of his party’s official proclamation of his untouchability, Demagogue Extraordinaire Donald Trump decided it would make great optics to take the presidential armored car on a pre-race lap at the Daytona 500, after a “dramatic” flyover in Air Force One. In other words, he co-opted an annual sporting event, one popular with Republican voters, as an election campaign rally, which...

America: Another Week’s Demolition Complete

Democrats must be flummoxed by Trump’s “foreign policy.” He has stolen all the moves they used to do behind closed doors or (accidently) into hot mics, and he has turned those secret anti-American subversions into boastful, brazen betrayals of American interests and America’s allies — and his supporters shout “MAGA!” and “Nobel Prize!” for each and every betrayal. Imagine if Obama had known...

The State of the Union

On Tuesday, February 4th, President Donald Trump will enter the United States Congress to deliver the completely superfluous tribal posturing ritual known as a “state of the union address.” Upon his entry, he will slowly wend his way down the aisle toward the altar, like a bride about to marry his own ego, during which parade — or perp walk, depending on your...
