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...

The Reason Presidential Character Matters

During the Republican primaries, many people objected to my repeated proofs of Donald Trump’s extreme deficiencies in intelligence, competence, decency, or political principles by saying, “But that’s exactly what America needs now: someone who will just storm in and blow things up, letting the chips fall where they may.” A simple two-word reply to those apologists: North Korea. The Trump...

Trump’s GOP Starts Own Ministry of Propaganda

For a year and a half, I’ve explained to anyone who would listen that all this “Trump vs. The Swamp” nonsense was propaganda to hoodwink a lot of naïve people into giving the GOP’s half of the Uniparty establishment exactly what it wanted — carte orange to roll Washington’s progressive agenda right over that minority of Americans who liked their...

Enough Already With the Trump-As-Victim Stuff

Patterico at RedState has recently become one of my favorite analysts of the nuts-and-bolts nuttiness of the Trump era, and the doltishness of the man himself. He doesn’t rely on hyperbole to make his points, but neither does he pull punches in assessing the “mind” and behavior of the Dufus-in-Chief and his rotating bootlickers (almost said “rotisserie of bootlickers”). His...

Scaramucci Mystery Remains Unsolved

A couple of days ago, I wrote a post here playfully asking, “What is a Scaramucci?”  It turns out that no one else knew either, including the man who, for no particular reason, hired the Scaramucci as communications director, and then, ten days later, and for no better reason, fired the Scaramucci as communications director.  It’s okay, he’s apparently rich,...

What is a Scaramucci?

In a desperate, albeit superfluous, attempt to secure his legacy as the dumbest U.S. President of all time, Donald Trump has appointed as his communications director something called “Scaramucci,” a (sort-of) man with the communication skills of Joe Pesci (from Goodfellas, not My Cousin Vinny), the ethics of Rahm Emanuel, and the personal charm of a sewer rat. Combining all...

Ten Possible Reasons Why Mitch McConnell Can’t Repeal and Replace Obamacare

  He never wanted to. You don’t “repeal and replace” a massive and society-altering piece of legislation without even trying to make the case for doing so to the nation’s population, which McConnell has very deliberately never done. Mitch McConnell is a closet progressive, much more interested in cutting deals for himself and his establishment cronies than in advancing the...
