Alt-Right Liars Duped By Their Own Fraud

In an remarkable spectacle of group meltdown, the duplicitous dimwits who willingly participated in the greatest fraud in U.S. presidential history are now acting as if they’re the ones who have been duped. Yes, that’s right: in the wake of Donald Trump’s air assault on Syria, the Trump pom-pom girls, the beta males kissing his ring, and the kook fringe conspiracy crowd...

Is Trump Going Neo-Con Now?

Throughout Donald Trump’s scene-stealing star turn through the Republican primaries, his fans showed a remarkable ability to filter out the fifty percent of everything he or his surrogates said that did not comport with the “Make American Great Again” populist nationalism that they happened to like. In fact, it was this self-censoring talent, developed to pitch-perfect levels, that led some...

Dr. McConnell and Mr. Trump Part III: The Reaping

Donald Trump, with Paul Ryan’s help, failed in his predictable attempt to hoodwink American conservatives with a “Repeal and Replace” healthcare solution that would neither repeal nor replace anything essential to the premise of government-run healthcare. (“Predictable”? you scoff. Yes, I predicted it repeatedly in print for a year.) Since the implosion of this none-too-clever fraud, Trump and his surrogates have been hard at work...

Cold Splash for Those Feeling Buyer’s Remorse on Trump

A good article by my great friend Steve McCann at American Thinker today spelling out the reality of Trump’s long-standing views — well, feelings, intuitions, biases, since Trump has no views, strictly speaking — on health care, and specifically the desirability of single payer health care, which is obviously the direction America is headed. McCann, one of the very few...

Shocker! Trump Blames Freedom Caucus for His Massive Incompetence

Well, if you’re a regular reader here, you already know that the above headline was written with tongue firmly in cheek. If there is anything in the world less shocking than the sun rising in the east today, it is that every time Donald Trump’s incompetence and lack of seriousness are exposed (i.e., about twice a day), he will do and say — okay, just...

Dumb Blondes for Trump, Abortion, Whatever

It has come to my attention that Tomi Lahren, whom I may have heard once on a Steven Crowder podcast, and who was apparently a hot commodity at Glenn Beck’s media enterprise, The Blaze, is now a not-quite-so-hot commodity without a media home, after a recent appearance on the Harpy Housewife Hour (aka “The View”) during which she declared herself suddenly pro-abortion. Like another...

Redshift: How Obama’s Marxist Transformation of America Succeeded

Redshift is the astronomical phenomenon in which light-emitting objects moving away from us at speed appear red, because their receding motion lengthens the light waves reaching our eyes, which constitutes a “shift” toward the low frequency end of the color spectrum — the red end of the rainbow, if you will. For eight years, American conservatives struggled to understand why their warnings...

America Votes to End Modern Civilization

(Originally published in November 2012) Did you happen to catch the end of civilization on TV last week? The 2012 U.S. election will likely be judged by men thousands of years hence as a world historical event, on a par with the Peloponnesian War, the assassination of Julius Caesar, the Copernican Revolution or the Battle of Waterloo. If this seems hyperbolic...

When Freedom is a Bowl of Rice

There are Chinese towns near the border with North Korea that send rice across the Yalu River in exchange for girls to marry. It makes sense. North Korea needs rice, because communist farming is a failure. China needs girls, after thirty years of sex-selective abortion and female infanticide. And this neat little arrangement in an obscure corner of the East...

The Great Surrender

Those who have been forcibly divested of their natural liberty by tyrants must be pitied. They have been coerced into accepting lies of security and state beneficence as paltry compensation for the loss of their birthright of a life worthy of human beings. And yet such wretchedness of external conditions, though destroying a man’s practical life, does not destroy the...
