Thoughts on the Wing: More U.S. Midterm Musings (With Even More — and More — Updates!)

Predictably, the day after the midterms, Republican voters are divided on the meaning of the results. Hardcore Trump cultists are following their lord and master in calling this loss of the House of Representatives a great victory, since at least the GOP held the Senate. The all-night social media “conservative movement” types are in the depths of despair, as they were just sure...

On Elections and The Fall

Today, Americans voted in a midterm election that has been cast by both teams…er, I mean parties, as a referendum on Donald Trump. Hence the results will establish exactly what the 2016 presidential election established, namely whether American voters prefer a mindless drift into communism or a mindless drift into mindlessness; servitude or stupidity; destitution and mob amorality or greed and vulgar populism....

U.S. Midterms: Round and Round

My American friends will be voting in their midterm elections on Tuesday, November 6th. And when I say “My American friends,” I mean that sincerely, on more than one level. Thus it is with equal sincerity that I say “I’m so sorry,” to all principled Americans today. For your political system has been completely and intractably undermined by competing factions of unprincipled careerists,...

A Musing on Blackface and Political Correctness

Might some black people be offended by the traditional vaudeville-style of performance now called “blackface”? Yes, obviously many are. Does it follow from this that anyone who refers to blackface, or even uses the word incorrectly to refer to something very different from a vaudeville-style parody of a black performer, as Megyn Kelly did last week, deserves public shaming, banishment from good society,...

October Surprise Packages (Updated!)

The wheels appear to have come off the Democrat jalopy in the final days of the U.S. midterm campaign. One desperate lunge at “momentum” after another has failed miserably, and perhaps even damaged the Democrats’ chances. Standing on the wrong side, the overtly Marxist wrong side, of every single issue, has, lo and behold, hurt their mainstream appeal. Time for an October surprise!...

Trump Threatens to Annihilate Transgenders

Well, actually no. What is apparently happening is that the New York Times has “obtained a memo” allegedly revealing that there is a faction within the administration that would like to establish a legal definition of gender that basically entrenches in the letter of the law the sort of thing that everyone took as a matter of common sense until a few years...

Boys Will Be Boys in the White House

CNN is reporting breathlessly that an argument — yes, believe it or not, a real shouting match — broke out in the West Wing of the White House Thursday.  A heated argument in the West Wing between chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton over a recent surge in border crossings turned into a shouting match Thursday, two sources...

Prairie Fire

Hillary Clinton, like all progressives, is projecting her own hatred and radicalism onto her opponents, claiming that communists (whom she still quaintly insists on calling “Democrats”) would certainly be civil if they could, but that civility simply is not possible as long as Republicans remain in power. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for,...

Thinking Out Loud (Quietly) About Christine Blasey Ford

As the female Marxist dog and pony show called the Democratic Party’s “case” against Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court has finally, thankfully, failed, it is time at last to put this absurd episode of radical activism to bed, and to say a relieved “Good night, folks,” to all its memorably tiresome players. Above all, of course, this means adios to...

Kavanaugh Fallout: The Good, The Bad, and the Foolish

Senator Susan Collins — basically a Democrat who occasionally votes with the Republicans, but for some reason maintains her GOP affiliation for electoral purposes — has announced her intention to vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, which essentially ensures his confirmation. The issue of whether he committed a sexual misdemeanor at a drunken party as a minor — which,...
