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...

Diagnosing Dr. Ford

Brett Kavanaugh’s “accuser,” Christine Blasey Ford, has responded to the continually-shifting deadline Republican senators have set for her to decide whether she wishes to testify about how a teenage boy made her feel nervous and uncomfortable thirty-some years ago, somewhere, in some unspecified situation, in a vacuum of isolated memory devoid of identifiable context that might help anyone verify or disprove her claims....

The Kavanaugh “Scandal” and Female Marxism

Brett Kavanaugh, U.S. Supreme Court nominee, within days of his confirmation vote, has suddenly been hit with an accusation of sexual misconduct…or molestation…or maybe it was attempted rapeā€¦from thirty-five years ago. The allegation was known by Senator Feinstein for months, but held for launching until the last moment, so that scrutiny of the accusation and accuser would take a back seat to the...
