China “Disappears” Interpol President, World Yawns

Last week, I wrote about the peculiar story of Interpol president Meng Hongwei, a high ranking member of the Chinese Communist Party, who had suddenly disappeared after sending not-so-cryptic messages to his wife indicating he was in danger. As suspected, he is being detained in China, and the communists have indicated only that he is “under the monitoring and investigation” of China’s new...

Elizabeth Warren Solves America’s Race Problem Forever

  Elizabeth Warren lied about her ethnic heritage throughout her academic career, repeatedly and obviously seeking personal and professional (and later political) advantage by claiming to be Native American — or as Harvard Law School boasted of her, its “first woman of color.” Now, in perhaps the greatest fit of accidental genius in the history of idiocy, Warren has tried to verify her...

The Tribunal Digs In

Recently, I have had frequent occasion to discuss the Marxist-Leninist-Maoist tribunal mentality that American progressives are invoking on a regular basis in their latest attempt to push the United States one fateful step closer to the one-party communist rule they clearly long for — though they will always laugh at you (a little too loud, methinks) for noting this longing. I call it...

Political Correctness: The Moron Files

Ages ago, Howard Cosell used the common old-timer’s phrase “little monkey” to describe an NFL wide receiver who was quick and agile. Unfortunately, that receiver also happened to be of a certain race that fake-sensitive white progressives are just sure needs to be protected from old-fashioned compliments that might seem, to complete morons like themselves, to imply a racial stereotype. Ask those fake-sensitive...

Kavanaugh Fallout: The Good, The Bad, and the Foolish

Senator Susan Collins — basically a Democrat who occasionally votes with the Republicans, but for some reason maintains her GOP affiliation for electoral purposes — has announced her intention to vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court, which essentially ensures his confirmation. The issue of whether he committed a sexual misdemeanor at a drunken party as a minor — which,...

Female Marxism: Goofball Edition

Orrin Hatch was getting on an elevator — which, in today’s Washington, is apparently the preferred ambush site for female Marxist assailants. So naturally he was assailed by “protesters” who “wished to speak with him” about Brett Kavanaugh. Here is a video of the ensuing “discussion”: BASED ORRIN HATCH Hatch waves off protesters screaming at him. Protester “Don’t you wave your hand at...

A Note on “The #MeToo Movement”

Ben Sasse has adopted the politically correct — which, from an alleged conservative, means weak-kneed and lily-livered — position that “MeToo,” the recent female Marxist crusade to exploit some real cases of sexual abuse (mostly in leftist milieus such as Hollywood) as an opportunity to go in for the kill on progressivism’s anti-masculinity, anti-differentiation-of-the-sexes agenda, is a “very important movement.” That is to...

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,...

President Obama’s Brain Speaks Out on Kavanaugh

Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, a wavering Republican, announced that he would vote for Judge Kavanaugh after hearing his and Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony. Then he stepped out of the room, was confronted by two women with “passion,” and changed his mind, as only a Flake can do. One amusing take on this comes from Valerie Jarrett, former director of the long-running off-off-Broadway...

Here’s the MeToo Standard of Justice

In the wake of Christine Blasey Ford’s allegation of a thirty-five-year-old moment of mistreatment at an underage drinking party — “wake” as in the allegation is dead, since there is not a shred of evidence, not a single supporting witness, and the claim sounds like the paranoid exaggeration of an addled adolescent anyway — the MeToo army has kicked into full gear. A...
