Time Flies When You’re Torching Synagogues

Prefatory Warnings: If you think “Jew” means “Israel,” you are confusing humanity with geopolitics. If you think everything Israel does is pure and good, you are no longer thinking rationally. If you think everything Israel does is purely evil, you are projecting. If you think global Islamism is a false flag threat (created by The Joos, you see), you are...

Feminists on the Injustice of Pregnancy

Korea’s recently-elected progressive government has announced plans to begin “research” on the country’s restrictive abortion laws, which, of course, is another way of saying they are going to get the ball rolling on legalizing abortion. This initiative is merely an effort to bring the letter of the law into sync with the spirit of national decay, since many thousands of...

Defecting from Communist Canada

Big news in South Korea this week, captivating the nation, concerns a North Korean soldier who risked almost certain death to escape from his communist hell under gunfire. Meanwhile, a minor news item in Canada, quickly swept under the rug of political correctness, concerns the free world’s cowardly escape from civilization into the nightmare of quasi-communist tribunalism. To punctuate this...

How Moral Equivalency Normalizes North Korea

[The following article originally appeared at American Thinker under a different title.] Donald Trump began a visit to South Korea Tuesday (Korean Time). All focus, of course, is on whether Trump and recently-elected Korean president Moon Jae-in will present a unified position against North Korean aggression. Or let me restate that in words that make sense within the current zeitgeist:...

George Washington, Un-American

When George Washington’s memory has been deemed “unacceptable” to Americans, will America still exist? In the fundamental transformation of any nation, there will be a moment that stands as the symbolic termination of that nation as anything recognizable, and the beginning of a completely new nation unrelated to the old except in name. For example, you will know England is...

Why Do I Keep Calling Them “Progressives”?

As expected, my recent American Thinker article, “The Progressive Psychology of Exploiting a Crisis,” garnered many harrumphs from readers insisting that I stop using that danged lyin’ word, “progressive,” when the people I’m referring to are actually “regressives,” communists, or socialists who don’t promote progress at all! Sorry, but I’m sticking to my guns here — and here’s why. “Progressive”...

America To Surge Left During Trump Years

Donald Trump’s caving to Democrats over the debt ceiling will be the first in a string of ingenious “deals” the New York values President will strike with his long-time leftist friends. By the end of his great swamp-draining presidency, he will have ended any hope of saving the United States from bankruptcy, full-blown socialized medicine, and amnesty for illegals. I...

Hysterical American Thinker Writers Caused Charlie Gard to Suffer

A beneficial side effect of the horrible Charlie Gard case is that it is the kind of story that forces anyone who wishes to talk about it to define himself, whether openly or implicitly, on certain fundamental issues: self-ownership vs. socialism, the private family vs. state, and the principled defense of individual liberty vs. progressive pragmatism. One of the more...

A Planned and Orderly Death for Charlie Gard

Why were Charlie Gard’s parents not allowed to take him home to die? The answer provided by the Great Ormond Street Hospital is a priceless revelation of the socialist mind, and a perfect realization of the principles of medicine predicted in Brave New World. After claiming that they had “tried absolutely everything” to satisfy the parents’ wishes — “absolutely everything”...

What the Charlie Gard Case Was NEVER About

In civilization’s ongoing battle against the advance of progressive authoritarianism, the story of Charlie Gard — may he rest in peace — is an object lesson in the danger of unclear principles, and the value of clear ones. The defenders of the despotism of socialized medicine have a vested interest in trying to persuade you that the Charlie Gard case...
