One and All Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

From Right Scoop: A six-year-old boy has been raised as a girl since he was two, and his mother is intending to force him to undergo chemical castration at age eight. Mom has engaged a psychologist to diagnose the boy as a transgender girl, in support of her preference for raising the daughter she didn’t have. Meanwhile, the boy’s father insists his son...

Last Man Standing? Another “Conservative Media” Outlet Bites the Dust

During the 2016 Republican primaries, most of the “conservative media,” print and radio (television is not even worth talking about), revealed itself once and for all as nothing but so many mouthpieces for the GOP establishment; in it for the money, the squishy “insider” feelings of pseudo-power, or both. For those of us observing this from the outside, it was almost dizzying to...

Trump Goes Lower, If That’s Possible; and A Word from Rand Paul

A day after announcing that his administration would not take any action to “punish” Saudi Arabia for the revolting murder of a private (non-American) citizen — overall, probably the right decision for U.S. Constitutional reasons — Donald Trump, as usual, has shown himself to be the dumbest and most immoral man ever to pleasure himself as American president. Today, from the smelliest pits...

Weekend Reflections: Comic Book Culture; Modern Conservatives; “True” Conservatism

Marvel Comics superhero Stan Lee died recently. In response to this news, Bill Maher, an iconoclastic moron comedian who pretends to be a social commentator, took his usual contrarian stance: In a blog post to his website Saturday, the late night host wrote, “America is in mourning. Deep, deep mourning for a man who inspired millions to, I don’t know, watch a movie,...

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...
