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...

Charlie Gard’s Parents Give Up — And You’re Next

Charlie Gard’s parents, stonewalled by their government and the Euro-socialist high command for five months, their child effectively kidnapped by the State, have finally been forced to accept that it is now too late to hope that their baby might be saved. They have therefore withdrawn their application to take him to an American hospital for experimental treatment. He will...

Is Trump Leaking (more than just IQ points)?

Soopermexican at Right Scoop has gathered together some of the Twitter responses to the suspicious timing of the latest New York Times “bombshell” about Jeff Sessions’ meetings with the Russian ambassador, as many wonder aloud whether Donald Trump’s White House itself is the leaker in this case. This, the theory goes, would help Trump get rid of Sessions and replace...

Trump Dives to Bottom of Swamp

If you had to defend yourself against accusations of wrongdoing, I presume you would know better than to say, “But most politicians would do the same.” You would understand that saying most politicians would act as you did is virtually self-incriminating — particularly if you were a politician whose campaign was built on promising to “drain the swamp” of corrupt...

Addendum to “The True Meaning of Socialized Medicine”

“The True Meaning of Socialized Medicine” has received a lot of attention, and garnered some very thoughtful and interesting comments from readers. One aspect of the article that has perhaps received less notice than I had hoped, however — the gist of the piece, for me — is the relationship between government-run health care and a fundamental principle of classical...

Patriots Against the Gender Thought Police

On June 17th, I wrote about the passage of Bill C-16 through Canada’s Senate, legislation that literally makes a hate crime of merely objecting to the progressive vanguard on “gender identity” and “gender expression.” A law that in theory makes a thought criminal of anyone who disputes a new-fangled moral or scientific premise is inherently tyrannical. A patriot, contrary to the progressive dilution of the...

Canada Criminalizes Non-Progressive Thought

Do you think imposing so-called transgenderism on children as a sexual norm might be harmful to their moral development? Do you question the legitimacy of using made-up, so-called gender-neutral pronouns as replacements for the standard English words “he” and “she”? If you answered yes, or even maybe, to either of those questions, then, as of today, you are in violation...

Canada Goes Full Maoist

“Health Canada considers sweeping ban on junk food ads aimed at children and teens.” So reads the headline at CBC News. And with that matter-of-fact announcement — just a normal day’s political news in the true north weak and socialist — a nation quietly declares itself lost to freedom forever. D-Day memories of the brave Canadians at Juno Beach washed...

MLB Hopes to Shrink Balls

Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar has been suspended for two games for shouting an “anti-gay slur” at Atlanta Braves pitcher Jason Motte during an angry outburst. In other words, he used a word — which apparently is now officially and for all progressive time “the f-word,” equivalent to “the n-word” — to attack the masculinity of another player, on...

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...
