The Weather Underground, Aboveground At Last

Today I read the news that Judith Clark, a member of Bill Ayers’ communist terrorist group The Weather Underground, has been granted parole and released from prison. Clark was the getaway driver in the 1981 Brinks truck heist carried out by members of the WU and the Black Liberation Army, in which two police officers and a security guard were killed. She was...

Weekend Reflections: Democrats are Fun!

Remember when Hillary Clinton faked a Southern Baptist preacher intonation and accent when she was speaking to southern black audiences? Remember, for that matter, when Barack Obama, a Hawaiian-born and -raised mulatto with a Kenyan father, educated in the privileged upper echelons of “white America,” put on that same intonation when he spoke to black audiences? (I know, of course, that these days...

Nope, no slippery slope to see here — move along!

Another day on Earth here at the penultimate moment of Everything, so one hardly has so much as an eyebrow left innocent enough to rise at this story: Uma Louise was born at 6:06am on Monday in the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, weighing 2.6kg, to proud dads Matthew Eledge and husband Elliot Dougherty. She was conceived via in vitro fertilisation, using Matthew’s sperm and eggs...

A Contrast of Styles

I offer you this brief comparison of two great presidents: the one who made America great, and the one who is making her great again. Arbitrary power is most easily established on the ruins of liberty abused to licentiousness. — George Washington, June 8th, 1783 George Conway, often referred to as Mr. Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of...

Random Stupidity

A few passing thoughts of a Tuesday afternoon (Limbo Standard Time), all of them — sadly but typically in these times — thoughts of stupidity: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the fastest-fading cutie in the history of passing novelties, is doing what the very stupid always do when faced with the daily refutation of all their bright ideas: making even louder declarations of even more ludicrous...

Weekend Reflections: Eric Hoffer and America’s Collapse

Both the revolutionary and the creative individual are perpetual juveniles. The revolutionary does not grow up because he cannot grow, while the creative individual cannot grow up because he keeps growing. — Eric Hoffer, Reflections on the Human Condition, p. 62 Elizabeth Warren, an old Marxist windbag, is trying to distinguish herself from Bernie Sanders, an old Marxist windbag, by claiming that she...

The Psychology of the Bootlicker, Part Two (Bolton for the win!)

I will not bother reiterating all the reasons I have previously offered in support of my minority opinion that John Bolton is none of the things his “conservative” admirers claim he is, and is in fact almost the exact opposite of all those things. Nor will I bother reminding you that I called him out as a cowardly sycophantic lifelong bureaucrat who would...

Trump Surrenders (Again)

In my initial remarks on Donald Trump’s failed second summit with Kim Jong-un, I quipped that no deal could be reached because the two sides couldn’t find anything else for Trump to concede to Kim after last year’s summit. Of course, I was only joking — there is naturally plenty for Trump to concede, and in spite of reaching no deal this week,...

Slime Doubles Down

Yesterday, in the context of discussing Donald Trump’s latest publicity stunt with his admired young friend Kim Jong-un, I noted, as did many others, Trump’s answer about dead American student Otto Warmbier, who was tortured so badly in a North Korean prison (for stealing a poster) that he died shortly after being released to U.S. authorities. Trump directly exonerated Kim of any wrongdoing...

Poor Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum — how many remember that he was Ted Cruz’s predecessor as the GOP’s second-place finisher and last surviving grassroots candidate, destroyed by a united GOP establishment in the final stages of the previous Republican presidential primary process (2012)? — occasionally makes the news these days as a guest commentator on television. On most of these occasions, he is saying something reasonable...
