Trump’s OJ-Style Confession

Addressing the plea deal declaration by his longtime legal fixer, Michael Cohen, that the hush money payments he arranged for Trump’s random sex partners were made at Trump’s personal direction, Donald Trump has sent out his personal legal representative du jour, Rudy “I’ll-do-anything-to-stay-relevant” Giuliani, to call Cohen a liar, and claim, absurdly, that Cohen’s earlier statements covering for Trump, while he was Trump’s...

Conservative Creepy

Creepy lawyer Michael Cohen signs a plea deal in which he pronounces himself guilty of federal crimes, and implicates Donald Trump in those crimes by declaring that he committed some of them at “the candidate’s” direction, for the express purpose of influencing an election campaign. Mark Levin, a lawyer, along with a radio guest who is also a lawyer, buck each other and...

Survey of the Major News of the Day

Ben Affleck, an actor of no consequence (assuming that isn’t a redundancy), has split up with his girlfriend of one year, citing irreconcilable distances. According to one “source,” “They tried to make it work.” Man, I’m bummed. I thought this one was forever. Anyone remember Good Will Hunting, the most childishly pretentious movie about emotional repression since Ordinary People? It was co-written, I...

Social Media as Public Utility

Donald Trump, playing to his hordes as usual — the demagogue’s trap — is out on social media attacking social media for “censoring” “Republican/Conservative voices.” (Clever slash there, since the Republicans as a party are in no way connected to anything remotely like conservatism, but they always use these conjunctive forms to hide that fact, thereby sucking naïve conservatives into the establishment vortex.)...

Trump’s Dog Days

Donald Trump hired a worthless reality TV exhibitionist named Omarosa for a real job in the real White House. He praised her, as he does all his hires, as he continually tells the world he only hires the best people. Well, today that worthless reality TV exhibitionist is a “dog” — according to the man who only hires the best people. When you...

Peter Strzok is Deeply Saddened

I have generally steered clear of the details of Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election. In particular, I have avoided the peripheral soap operas regarding whether or not everyone involved in the investigation is a deep state operative working for Hillary to undermine the Dear Orange Leader. But the FBI’s firing of Peter Strzok warrants a short...

Weekend Reflection: Weenies

Donald Trump is back to attacking his own attorney general again: The big story that the Fake News Media refuses to report is lowlife Christopher Steele’s many meetings with Deputy A.G. Bruce Ohr and his beautiful wife, Nelly. It was Fusion GPS that hired Steele to write the phony & discredited Dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary & the DNC…. — Donald J....

A Nation of Libertarians and Leftists

I have received some interesting feedback about last week’s article, “The Dangerous Idealization of Material Success,” and its follow-up, “Concluding Unscientific Postscript,” in which I challenge the current orthodoxy among so-called conservatives regarding the place and value of material acquisitiveness in the hierarchy of natural concerns. One very thought-provoking comment came from my old friend Tim Birdnow (visit his blog here), who e-mailed...

Eternal Darkness of the Spotlessly Progressive Mind

Yesterday, I threw in my two cents regarding Sarah Jeong, the “Korean-American” race-obsessed harpy who has just been hired onto The New York Times editorial team — and hired not in spite of her race-obsessed harpydom, but because of it. (The Times has admitted to having examined her Twitter history before hiring her, which means they liked the naked hatred they saw there,...

Okay, I Guess This is What Racism Looks Like

I am one of those anti-political correctness types who eschew the easy road of accusing people of “racism” every time they say something harsh or hyperbolic about anyone who happens not to share the same skin color, or even about a racial group as such. For one thing, I despise the way such -isms always end up being used as smears to destroy...
