“Selective” Principles are Not Principles

An object lesson in hypocrisy, if you please. Here is Ted Cruz, aka Lyin’ Ted, aka the most shameless political climber and sycophant this side of his hero Donald Trump, calling out — oh, imagine the courage! — a moronic professional athlete, Lebron James, whom everyone in America is excoriating today.  From Alt-Right Poop: Cruz says that Lebron is a “hell of a...

Sell-out’s Remorse?

I see on Right Scoop that Mark Levin, after a predictable delay to figure out how to say this without losing Donnie’s affection, has weighed in on his leash-holder’s decision to abandon America’s Kurdish allies to a massacre and then brag about it on Twitter while complaining about how the Kurds didn’t help the U.S. at Normandy (yes, he really said that). And,...

Scanning the Kavanaugh Sex Crime Times in Search of 2,000 Dead Babies

Just for laughs, I scrolled down MSN’s home page this morning, scanning the headlines they have posted over the past few days. I quickly counted six headlines related to the “latest” rehash of Justice Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misbehavior thirty years ago as a college freshmen, each of the six headlines directly based on one allegation regarding a teenage drinking party, a party at...

Hypocritical Rhetoric on the “Right”

Walmart in the U.S. has decided to play the virtue signal game by vowing to stop selling certain guns and ammunition, and even asking that customers in states with laws permitting the open carrying of firearms cease carrying their guns openly at Walmart stores. In other words, they are choosing to treat everyone who owns a gun as guilty until proven innocent, although...

Limbo’s Greatest Hits: # 5

Looking back over the past year’s Top Ten List of the most frequently read articles on this website, I am most intrigued by the sheer unpredictability of the entries. Some of the most popular reads are longer, more complex theoretical discussions, which is very gratifying, as it heartens me to think I have found the twenty or thirty humans out there who still...

The Second Coming of God Demands that Americans be Loyal to….

For years, Republicans have recited the mantra that American Jews who vote for the Democratic Party are delusional and self-loathing, essentially the flipside of the argument Democrats always use against blacks who vote Republican — though of course, “In our case it’s true!” This desperate urge of both sides in America’s phony “binary choice” war to corral all people into blocs and collectives,...

The Voice of Tyranny

Here is what progressive totalitarianism looks like. Read carefully, for the following statement has so much wrong with it that I am sure I will not come close to exhausting all of its outrages in this one short post: Serious discussions are taking place between House and Senate leadership on meaningful Background Checks. I have also been speaking to…

Might this be your limit, Trumpsters? (Rhetorical Question)

Over the weekend in America, two insignificant nobodies imagined they could make their lives meaningful by shooting dozens of strangers and claiming, to aggrandize their emptiness, that their aimless spiritual suicide was some sort of quasi-political statement. In carrying out their self-damnation, the two insignificant nobodies used guns, much like the ones owned by millions of law-abiding citizens who, in accordance with the...

Yes, he is that weak

Lest anyone imagine that Trump’s boasting this week about his ability to bankrupt a nation even faster than he can bankrupt a business is limited to matters of mere economic survival, the Orange God himself has taken pains to remind Americans that he is just as brave and unprecedented in promoting moral bankruptcy.   As Dana over at Patterico’s site observes: It speaks...
