RedState After the Purge

A few weeks ago, RedState, one of perhaps only two popular American conservative news sites to have maintained a healthy presence of non-cult-friendly opinion on Donald Trump’s presidency, underwent a sudden pro-Trump purge, firing most of its writers associated with Trump criticism, including some of its more popular writers, and all of its best ones. Here is a brief report on the result:...

Ted Cruz Lickspittle Watch, Part III

It seems almost a daily occurrence now: Ted Cruz fawning over the greatness of President Trump and defending the lovely man’s honor before all who will listen. Within hours of my last post on the topic comes this remarkable moment from Cruz’s appearance on “Fox and Friends” — you know, on that pro-Trump network that wouldn’t give Cruz a platform during the primaries...

“Toady Ted! Toady Ted!”

During the 2016 Republican primaries, Donald Trump and his surrogates smeared Ted Cruz as a fake Christian, a pathological liar, and a globalist tool whose marriage was a sham to cover for his serial romps with aides, whose wife was a climbing, hysterical schemer with “Stepford wife” overtones, and whose father was involved in the JFK assassination. I’m beginning to wonder…. Today, Right...

“Conservative Media’s” Populist Purge Continues

I used to write regularly, and quite successfully, for a popular conservative website, entering my self-imposed exile here in Limbo only after my old friends decided that Donald Trump was George Washington, “MAGA” was the Declaration of Independence, “The Wall” was the Constitution, and progressive populist idolatry was conservatism, i.e., when they actively joined the so-called conservative media’s purge of all Trump criticism....

Ted Cruz Kisses the Ring

Time Magazine’s 2018 list of the one hundred most influential people has been revealed — I know, finally! I thought I’d lose my mind with anticipation! — and not surprisingly, Donald Trump made the list. What may be surprising, however, is that the accompanying celebrity write-up about Trump was penned by none other than Lyin’ Ted, aka Senator Cruz. Many of his supporters...

Trump’s Desperate Courting of Neocons

Well, well, how are the anti-Deep-State, drain-the-swamp Trump cultists going to deal with this? (The same way they deal with everything, of course: “Chess!”) Within the past few hours, Donald Trump has pardoned neoconservative martyr Lewis Libby and ordered strikes on Syria in defense of no known U.S. interests. Talk about a cry for help! I’m awaiting Bill Kristol’s endorsement, undoubtedly coming soon....

John Boehner Goes Literal

John Boehner, along with his partner in crime Mitch McConnell, perpetrated the greatest fraud in modern political history, quietly facilitating the Marxist transformation of America while loudly pretending to be leading the resistance. That is, he made his fortune selling a palliative for America’s suffering while actively exacerbating the causes of that suffering. Like a drug dealer. Well, now he really is one....

Here’s the Man Trump Helped McConnell Defeat

In 2014, Tea Party candidate Matt Bevin challenged Mitch McConnell’s senate seat in the Kentucky Republican primary. In answer to this challenge, McConnell vowed to “crush” the Tea Party in general. A falsely-named PAC, Kentuckians for Strong Leadership, consisting primarily of donors to Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, sprang up to support McConnell’s Tea Party-crushing efforts. Among the group’s major donations was Donald Trump’s...

Trump Exposes How the “Swamp” Works

Remember how Trump justified signing the omnibus spending bill last week by claiming that the seven hundred billion dollars allocated for the military was desperately needed? For conservatives or others of a “right-leaning” nature, claiming military need is just the easiest catch-all excuse for confiscatory taxation, used the same way the Democrats cite “desperately-needed” social programs. Happily, Trump is so dumb that he...

No, Trump Didn’t Get “Rolled”: An Open Letter to Old Friends

My old haunt American Thinker, along with PJ Media, American Spectator, and almost all the other big “conservative” websites, jumped headfirst onto the Trump bandwagon almost two years ago. From that time, the official editorial line has been that everything Trump does must be justified and defended, and that all criticism of the man or his cult must be muted or outright barred. ...
