Iran for Progressive Dummies

The world’s progressive political establishment and its media torch-bearers have spent so many years lying and obfuscating on behalf of tyranny, in the name of defending anything that might be seen as useful in their definitive and never-ending war against individual liberty, that they have apparently obscured the truth even from themselves. Thus, they are now, fittingly, subject to what Socrates, in the...

Limbo’s Traditional Christmas Greeting

Many years ago, I wrote a Christmas essay for American Thinker. Because I am I, and my preoccupations are as they are, the piece was neither nostalgic nor sentimental in character, but rather a reflection on the ultimate civilizational significance of Christmas. That is to say, I was not primarily concerned with the religious or dogmatic meaning of the holiday, but instead with...

Reflections on Two Unspeakables: “Debt” and “Merry Christmas”

Donald Trump has proudly exposed yet more evidence that he is nothing but a Washington establishment puppet, the ultimate booby prize for a “grassroots” very long on “grass” and very short on “roots.”  I will be signing our 738 Billion Dollar Defense Spending Bill today. It will include 12 weeks Paid Parental Leave, gives our troops a raise, importantly creates the SPACE FORCE,...

Francis the Talking Fool, aka That Crazy Pontiff

Pope Francis, apparently envious of all the youth-baiting appeal of international Marxism’s prop du jour, teenage communist mouthpiece Greta Thunberg, is out there riding Greta’s coattails, declaring that the Catholic Church, of which he is ostensibly still a member, is actively considering changing the catechism to include “the sin against ecology,” or “ecological sin,” or — my favorite phrasing — “ecocide” as part...

When is abortion murder?

A good reader, who likes to put me on the spot to justify my moral outlook, has challenged me, on the subject of abortion, to specify at exactly what point the killing of a human fetus or embryo may be classified as a murder. As he points out, many U.S. states, like many jurisdictions around the world, treat the violent termination of an...

As for the “Christian homosexual” candidate…

Yesterday, I mocked fraudulent evangelical hypocrite Franklin Graham over his holier-than-thou critique of Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s claims of being a “Christian homosexual.” Specifically, I questioned how any alleged religious leader who has praised Donald Trump as God’s chosen one, while ignoring or obfuscating about Trump’s well-known and proudly-declared life of sin, can claim any moral authority in objecting to Buttigieg’s attempts...

Making Amends

Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, from the U.S. state of Little Somalia (the former People’s Republic of Minnesota), has officially apologized to American Jewish groups for her many statements which might have given the (correct) impression that she harbors anti-Jewish paranoia and blames Israel for every world problem and essentially wants all Jews removed from politics and decent society. Always nice to see peace...

Progressive Catholicity

Have you ever, at any time in your life, displayed anger in a public place? Have you ever had too much to drink and spoken or behaved in a childish and irresponsible manner? Have you ever used a bad word in front of other people? Have you ever said something disrespectful to another human being during a disagreement or dispute? Have you ever,...

Catholic Magazine Unendorses Kavanaugh

From the news headlines at msn.com (MSN = Marxist-Soft Network), I find this wonderful tidbit: The leading Catholic magazine America, which has been published since 1909, revoked its endorsement of Kavanaugh after yesterday’s hearing. The editorial board said the sexual assault allegations brought against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford and others should be investigated further, and urged the president to put forward another judge...

Poor, Misunderstood Vladimir: Just a Religious Crusader Who Can’t Catch a Break

And the fascinating e-mails just keep on coming. Jamie Glazov, a relentless alternative media propagandist for Donald Trump, passes along a link to a wonderful article at American Greatness. (Hmm, that name reminds me of something…a campaign slogan, perhaps….) The article is by Michael Finch, who happens to have the very legitimate-sounding title, “president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles.”...
