North Korea Delivers Shocking Response

I’m stunned, stunned I tell you! After six weeks of surrendering all their nuclear weapons and infrastructure in meek submission to the massive hands and best words of Mr. Alpha Nobel, North Korea has apparently forgotten who is Daddy around here and started issuing ultimatums again, threatening to cancel their big TV “summit” with the pretend leader of the so-called free world. It...

Countdown to Civil War

Supporters and opponents of Donald Trump alike are fond of repeating the mantra that if Trump were impeached, there would be a new civil war in America. I wonder. Wouldn’t such a new civil war have to be initiated by people so engaged and passionate that they would be prepared to die fighting for what they espouse? And yet although Trump’s true believers...

John Boehner Goes Literal

John Boehner, along with his partner in crime Mitch McConnell, perpetrated the greatest fraud in modern political history, quietly facilitating the Marxist transformation of America while loudly pretending to be leading the resistance. That is, he made his fortune selling a palliative for America’s suffering while actively exacerbating the causes of that suffering. Like a drug dealer. Well, now he really is one....

When in Rome: Rehabilitating Mussolini

Tuesday, American Thinker revisited its glory days as a repository for thoughtful conservative commentary, posting an article on the Second Amendment by my friend Steve McCann. Apparently sensing the need to counterbalance an actual conservative voice in their midst with an extra helping of the grassroots’ new post-conservative mood — populist nationalism — they also ran an apology for Benito Mussolini. No, that’s...

Here’s the Man Trump Helped McConnell Defeat

In 2014, Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin challenged Mitch McConnell’s senate seat in the Kentucky Republican primary. In answer to this challenge, McConnell vowed to “crush” the Tea Party in general. A falsely-named PAC, Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, consisting primarily of donors to Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, sprang up to support McConnell’s Tea Party-crushing efforts. Among the group’s major donations was Donald Trump’s...

No, Trump Didn’t Get “Rolled”: An Open Letter to Old Friends

My old haunt American Thinker, along with PJ Media, American Spectator, and almost all the other big “conservative” websites, jumped headfirst onto the Trump bandwagon almost two years ago. From that time, the official editorial line has been that everything Trump does must be justified and defended, and that all criticism of the man or his cult must be muted or outright barred. ...

Can We Just Put America Out of Her Misery, Already!

The lawyer for pornographic actress “Stormy Daniels” has communicated with President Donald Trump via the latter’s preferred diplomatic channel, Twitter, by posting a photograph of a DVD along with a not-so-subtle warning that the President should take the disc’s contents very seriously. Does anyone really want to see how this plays out? I mean anyone who prefers America to reality television? Let’s get...

Bolton and Trump: Together at Last

I have nothing left to say about John Bolton that will do my blood pressure any good. He is Trump with a brain and an image-conscious “crusty ol’ veteran” moustache. He is an armchair quarterback in a game played with other people’s sons and husbands. He is — sorry to be so blunt and cruel — a Fox News expert commentator.  Last September,...

Could America Just Fire Everyone and Start from Scratch?

Donald Trump, who has a great brain, only hires the best people, and believes in surrounding himself with high quality humans, is in the process of decimating his entire administration in the name of correcting all the horrible personnel mistakes he never made. But, as the still semi-rational cult members keep telling us, at least he still has John Kelly. Here’s why… Reporters...

Trump “Almost Has the Cabinet He Wants”

Wonderful news. Sixteen months after being elected President and officially beginning the process of vetting and choosing his cabinet, Donald Trump assures America that he is starting to get this whole White House thingy figured out. “I’m really at a point where we’re getting close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want,” he said, after firing Secretary of State Rex...
