Passing Thoughts

The Democratic Party’s eager pursuit of impeachment, grabbing all the headlines and dictating the news cycle during these early days of presidential primary season, is a sure signal that they know their current crop of candidates would be unlikely to beat Donald Trump in 2020. They need to cripple Trump terribly, if not outright remove him from office, in order to give that...

Trump Helpfully Defines “Never Trumper”

Donald Trump submitted the following thoughtful remarks for the world’s perusal today, in which he examines the congressional testimony of a high-ranking military officer regarding Trump’s phone conversation with the Ukrainian president: Why are people that I never even heard of testifying about the call. Just READ THE CALL TRANSCRIPT AND THE IMPEACHMENT HOAX IS OVER! Ukrain said NO PRESSURE. https://t.co/VYmW8bYcgS — Donald...

Weekend (wry) smile: America today

I just read that a University of Montana man, Jonathan Eastwood, who now identifies as a University of Montana woman, June Eastwood, has been named the university’s “female athlete of the week.” Because feminism and identity politics are essential to advancing the causes of equality and fairness for women. I saw a CBS News Online headline a couple of days ago announcing, in...

In Defense of Human Scum

Here is the latest fireside chat from the President of the United States: The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 23, 2019 Allow me to interpret that statement, for...

Trump loses again, as predicted (Updated)

So far, Donald Trump’s ingenious Syrian strategy of serving up the U.S.-allied Kurds to a massacre, handing Kurdish land in northern Syria to Turkish invaders, and then allowing Vladimir Putin to sweep in, along with his friend Bashar al-Assad, to take control of the entire region, is working out brilliantly.  Oh, sorry, that wasn’t Trump’s plan? That was just what I said would...

Let’s Play “Manufacturing Trump’s Brain”

Trump supporters are out in force, as usual, tripping over themselves trying to invent a rationale — several, in fact — for the latest utterly irrational and conscienceless behavior of their favorite establishment-puppet/rogue-progressive president. In the process, they reveal just how fraught with moral traps is this game of “Manufacturing Trump’s Brain” in which they are perpetually engaged. For more than three years,...

Trump redefines national disgrace as “winning”

Donald Trump is now out on Twitter boasting about his incredible new “deal” with Turkey, in which Turkey gets to occupy the part of Syria she just invaded thanks to Trump’s superfluous green light, the Kurds permanently lose their territory, the Russians will end up making all the real decisions, the ISIS prisoners set free by fleeing Kurds will stay free, and the...

Okay, I am officially ashamed

Last evening, as I do systematically, like clockwork, about once every fifty to a hundred days, I swallowed my pride and surfed over to my political commentary alma mater, American Thinker, to see — as if I couldn’t already have guessed — how the most outrageously sold out of all the conservative media sell-outs were handling the latest slew of Trump failures.  Within...

Democratic debate: 7 things to watch for

The title of this article repeats a headline I just read at MSN’s homepage. Since I think we already know what sort of things a mainstream American news source (i.e., progressive authoritarian propaganda voice) is likely to recommend that you “watch for” during a Democratic debate, I have decided to offer an alternative, non-progressive list of my own. 7 things to watch for...

American Killing Machines (and the Cowards who Lead Them)

I don’t use Twitter, for the same reason Donald Trump does use it, namely that it’s a forum perfectly suited to encourage mindless attention-seeking and tribal lynch mob bravado from people too cowardly and lazy even to march at the rear end of any real mob. Occasionally, however, I come across a Trump tweet while reading a news item or reader’s comment. Most...
