Multiculti America, Trump Style

Trump created his cult mainly by blustering that he was all for Americans citizens and would protect them from the onslaught of illegal immigrants. Now he gets the same cult cheering by promising to make more of those illegal immigrants into U.S. citizens than even the Democrats wanted, insisting these Mexicans are necessary to fill all the amazing jobs he’s creating. You have...

Loving Trump, warts and…well, warts

For two years, one alleged conservative after another has disappeared from American society and been replaced with a pod replica prepared to make or accept endless excuses for a laughably wee man who comes with more baggage than a Samsonite warehouse. How often have we heard this one: “I’m so worried about America’s future that I have no choice but to support Trump.”...

Just a Normal Week in Trumpistan

Over the past week, Donald Trump has: recommended ignoring the due process rights of American citizens deemed (by someone) to be “a potential danger to themselves or others,” in favor of confiscating the person’s firearms and “any weapons”; boasted of being able to ban a certain kind of gun accessory (bump stocks) on his own, without having to go through Congress; accused Republican...

Billionaire Mocks “Trivial” Effect of Steel Tariffs

U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who looks old enough to have personally lived through the fall-out from the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act, insists that Donald Trump’s big, beautiful steel tariff will have only a “trivial” effect on prices — equivalent, he claims, to 0.6 cents on a can of Campbell’s soup. Are Trump’s surrogates as dumb as being Trump’s surrogates makes them appear?...

No One Left to Lie To

I borrow the title of this post from Christopher Hitchens’ book about Bill Clinton, which seems fitting, since, as I have argued more than once, Donald Trump — this era’s universal liar — has borrowed the governing style of the best president of his lifetime (according to him): Say whatever suits today’s audience, and play Confuse-a-Cat by stealing popular issues from your opponents....

Why Literacy Matters in a Leader

Donald Trump is inviting his drunken cultists to join him in partying like it’s 1934. FDR, the Uniparty progressives’ favorite president — Newt Gingrich thinks him the greatest of the twentieth century — was a nation-changing catastrophe of economic destruction, judicial corruption, and Constitution abandonment the likes of which America had never seen. FDR wrote the book on democratic tyranny. Unfortunately, Donnie can’t...

Why Principles Matter in a Leader (Gun Confiscation Edition)

Okay, this may sound like baby talk for most of you, but in the current political climate the most obvious musings are often considered radical, subversive, even cuckservative. So at the risk of insulting the intelligence of this website’s typical readers — while simultaneously challenging the intelligence of the typical readers at your more popular “conservative websites” — let me observe, simplistically, that...

America Getting Bankrupter and Bankrupter

Beyond TV’s Republican porn stars — the scantily-dressed blond girls squealing “oooh, Trumpy!” and the tubby middle-aged men who sidle up to them on camera as wish-fulfillment surrogates for the “conservative” audience — is there anyone left who still believes Donald Trump ever intended to drain any swamps? In truth, all that he and his GOP puppeteers want to drain is America’s lifeblood....

Oh Boy! Another Memo!

Wonderful news, everyone! We have another memo! And this one isn’t some loaded pack of half-truths from the House GOP’s Trump Defense Fund. Oh no, this time we have the ungainsayable wisdom of the Senate GOP’s Trump Defense Fund, led by those stalwart grassroots constitutional conservative freedom fighters, Charles Grassley and Lindsey Graham. On its face, the Grassley/Graham memo (read it in its...

Okay, Okay, the Stupid Memo Again

Devin Nunes and fellow Trump cronies in Congress drummed up a fake furor over their alleged desperate fight to release their own bloody memo, the big blockbuster claim of which was that the “Steele dossier” was used to secure a FISA warrant without anyone telling the court that the dossier was paid for by the Clinton campaign. It appears that was a half-truth....
