Trump Back to Admiring Tyrants

Loving and defending Vladimir Putin became awkward for Donald Trump when the allegations of Russian election interference picked up steam. Praising the leadership of Kim Jong-un became ridiculous when Kim started openly mocking the U.S. and promising to nuke Guam. Frankly, Trump, always a gushing admirer of political strong men and thugs, was running out of killers to praise. Thankfully,...

Lies, Damned Lies, and Trumpspeak

To continue a theme of recent days, it turns out that Donald Trump never really “pulled out” of the Paris Climate Accord, as he boasted, but was merely looking for a “better deal” for Americans as a condition for “rejoining” the agreement (as if you can rejoin what has never been put asunder). In other words, Trump lied. Let’s have...

New Yorker Sends America to the Black Lodge

Among the weirder conceits of the once charming, now aggressively meaningless TV drama Twin Peaks, is the deus ex machina of the Black Lodge, a place of mock native legend, where people confront their own darkest fears, or meet doppelgängers who will live out alternative versions of their lives. The New Yorker has just sent America to the Black Lodge....

Trump Creates New Thing to Break

Donald Trump has just sealed the deal — a big, beautiful deal I’m sure — on the future of health care in America. Specifically, he has made a solemn promise to veto the single payer health care bill Bernie Sanders is proposing. That’s Trumpspeak for “Some form of quasi-single payer health care will be signed into law during my presidency.”...

America To Surge Left During Trump Years

Donald Trump’s caving to Democrats over the debt ceiling will be the first in a string of ingenious “deals” the New York values President will strike with his long-time leftist friends. By the end of his great swamp-draining presidency, he will have ended any hope of saving the United States from bankruptcy, full-blown socialized medicine, and amnesty for illegals. I...

What Won’t a Cultist Swallow?

I recently noted the psychological projection demonstrated by “New Trumper” cultists like Roger Kimball and Dennis Prager, who wonder aloud how much greater Donald Trump has to make America before the “NeverTrumpers” finally come around and acknowledge him as the Second Coming, or perhaps something even more unique than that. Let’s turn the question back on them, where it belongs:...

What the Confederate Statue Attackers Are Really After

My friend Timothy Birdnow recently wrote an extremely valuable article at American Thinker about the Left’s campaign of violence and moral intimidation aimed at destroying statues and monuments commemorating the Confederacy. His main thesis: This campaign’s real goal is not to assuage racial sensitivities, but rather to erase the United States and its history from American minds. After first laying...

Death Cultist Calls for Trump’s Impeachment

Former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich is calling for Donald Trump’s impeachment “as soon as possible.” His argument, in a nutshell: Trump is almost as deranged and mentally unstable as…Robert Reich. Here is his initial argument in his own words (from an August 18 blog post): Let’s be clear. There is already enough evidence to impeach Trump on grounds of abuse...

Bannon Admits Trump is an Impotent Know-Nothing

Steve Bannon, for several months Donald Trump’s court eunuch (Who knew a jester could have his own eunuch?) has now elevated himself to an even more exalted position: Chief Propagandist of Whining Excuses for the King’s Impotence. I haven’t had the heart to click over to Breitbart (aka “Trumpbart,” “Breitbarf,” etc.) in quite some time, but my friend and fellow...

Is Trump a White Supremacist?

Much of the frenzy over Donald Trump’s ever-changing, peculiarly nuanced response(s) to the violence in Charlottesville has been focused on the question of whether Trump secretly sympathizes with white supremacists, or whether perhaps — as in the apparent view of certain members of Dumb Blonds For Trump — he ought to sympathize with them. (And where is Ann Coulter these...
