Elitism vs. Snobbery

This past week, the NATO summit — am I alone in having to stifle a chortle every time we hear of today’s global “ruling class” labeling any of their champagne-and-empty-talking-points soirées a summit? — was turned upside down in a manner most typical of our social-media-infested age. Several VIPs (aka halfwits) were caught on video mocking Donald Trump in his absence. The comical...

The Impeachment Drama

The suspense is mounting, folks. What could possibly happen?  This: The Democrats in the House of Representatives are about to go through the process of formally voting to impeach President Trump — as they were hellbent on finding a way to do since at least a year before this Ukrainian military aid issue even existed — because some billionaire who paid his way...

Hitler, Trump, and Other Unrelated Things

Today, during the latest episode of The Impeachables, a Stanford University professor of some sort — honestly don’t know and honestly don’t care — replied to a straight line from one of the Democratic “questioners,” who pretended to ask (for what possible purpose? — I don’t know and I don’t care) how a U.S. president is different from a king, with this zinger: I’ll...

Trump’s Heroes

There is a fun story at Patterico’s site today, outlining some of the behavior of Navy Seal Edward Gallagher, whom Donald Trump recently pardoned in connection with some extracurricular activities he engaged in during his time in Iraq. If you have not been following the story, as I have not, then I will not ruin your amusement with spoilers, but let’s just say...

Trump’s Endless Kowtowing Tour Continues Uninterrupted

As you know, Highly Disputed Heavyweight Champion Donald “Pantywaist” Trumpkov has responded to a direct question about the Hong Kong protesters by crawling all the way across the Pacific Ocean in a championship-caliber grovel to Xi Jinping, begging Xi on live television to forgive him for having no choice but to publicly express a marginal, insincere bit of backhanded damning-with-faint-praise sympathy with those...

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. 👇🏻👇🏻https://t.co/j6JXXMznQM — Dan Bongino (@dbongino) November 27, 2019 Yeah! EXCLUSIVELY conservative...

And (hiding) in this corner…

pic.twitter.com/11nzKwOCtU — 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 — and then meekly carrying on with his simple life...

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....

Weekend Reflections: Roger Stone, Bobby Orr, IMPEACHMENT HOAX!!

Roger Stone, the longtime Washington establishment operative and perennial liar-for-political-profit who by chance just happened to be one of those “best people” Mr. Swamp-Drainer, Donald Trump, engaged as his lead advisor at the outset of his presidential campaign, and who continued to serve in that role unofficially after cleverly distancing himself from the official campaign to cleanse Trump of his, Stone’s, dirtiness, has...

The Sadistic Fetishism of the U.S. Media

We have been down this road several times before. Yet again someone has committed a “mass shooting,” this time in gun law haven California, and yet again the “mass media” is taking full advantage of the aftermath — to provoke and instigate the next shooting. They crave the violence. They crave the bloodshed. They crave the progressive talking points. If you think the...
