“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...

Impeachable You

The Democrats in the House of Representatives are initiating an inquiry into impeaching President Trump. In practice, this means they are promising to plan to look into whether or not it would be worthwhile to move forward with the process of preparing actual articles of impeachment against Trump upon which they might eventually vote. This is Nancy Pelosi’s too-clever-by-half way of smoothing over...

Carly Fiorina Proves a Point

I have a question for all the old Ted Cruz supporters from the 2016 primaries who have since chosen to support Donald Trump. I mean the real Cruz supporters, not just the many who now claim he was their first choice, in order to convince us that their “Trump is God” boxer shorts were the result of an honest, objective reassessment of all...

The Man Who Knew Too Much

Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy, well-connected financier who provided underage girls for the entertainment of many rich and powerful men in Washington and beyond, has died in prison of an alleged suicide. Everything about this story is so absurdly over the top in its exposure of the ugliest elements of the power elite that it seems fitting he should die this way, apparently taking...

Understanding Trump’s Strategy on the Debt

Mitch McConnell’s Senate has joined Nancy Pelosi’s House in passing what Twitter Cheerleader Extraordinaire and Chairman of the Superfluous Capitalization Club of America Donald Trump quaintly calls a “Budget Deal,” as though the U.S. Federal Government’s formal continuation of its longstanding principle of perpetual limitless debt increases has any business being described with the word “budget.” Does the operative principle here bear any...

Ceiling Unlimited for America!

Donald Trump is praising and endorsing the brilliant deal just worked out between his owner, Mitch McConnell, and the woman who calls him a racist, Nancy Pelosi, which will raise the debt ceiling all the way to Heaven, thus ensuring that the U.S. can continue to bankrupt itself into oblivion right there in front of God and everybody, and to hell with future...

My take on Trump’s thought-provoking “Go back where you came from” reflections

Donald Trump is an idiot. We all know that, when we are not lying to ourselves. He is also a vain, megalomaniacal blowhard. We all know that, too. Furthermore, he will do or say absolutely anything that he perceives as being to his advantage at this millisecond — where “his advantage,” given that he is an idiot and a vain, megalomaniacal blowhard, typically...

How “The News” Works

“Fake news.” The problem with Trump’s popular expression, apart from the dishonestly selective manner in which he uses it, is that the phrase is redundant. What we call “news” today is fake by definition. Hence, calling any media outlet “fake news” is like calling someone a “dishonest liar.” News is just opinion-mongering, propagandizing, commercial advertising, and political insinuation by another name. I will...

The Ladies’ Club (Marxist Revolutionary Chapter)

This week’s inadvertent comedy routine from the Democratic Party’s unforced implosion features Nancy Pelosi calling out her party’s newest Marxist Moronettes — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib — identifying them as extreme leftists, and therefore legislatively ineffective and self-marginalizing. In response, the most shameless attention-seeker among the Marxist Moronettes, Ocasio-Cortez, has damned Pelosi and the rest of the older...

Musings on Soccer and Progressive Elitism

The U.S. national women’s soccer team has qualified for the World Cup final match, as expected. It is interesting that women’s soccer is dominated by a team from a country that doesn’t really care much about soccer. Perhaps this teaches us something about the politicized nature of women and “women’s sports” in North America. I’m not sure what it teaches, to be honest,...
