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...

China Today, The Rest of Us Tomorrow

I offer a brief, simple glimpse into your future, our future, the advanced world’s future — the near future. The Chinese president of Interpol — yes, the president of the famed international police agency is a member of the Chinese Communist Party — has officially “resigned, with immediate effect,” weeks after sending his wife an image of a knife on an Interpol phone,...

How Trump Was Used in Korea

Moon Jae-in is a lifelong, hardcore progressive, which is to say he is a neo-Marxist at heart, though he cloaks it in bland business suits and talk of “peace” and “democracy.” Many of his domestic policies since winning the election to replace impeached Park Geun-hye are standard-issue progressive “reform” assaults, such as imposing sweeping new regulations on private businesses. But nothing he has...

Trump: God’s Gift to the World’s Puny Men

One of the strange but predictable results of Donald Trump’s presidency is that in his ignorance he has found remarkably inventive ways to elevate and aggrandize some of the world’s most absurd and/or dangerous leaders. Leaving aside Vladimir Putin, Trump’s favorite bully, but a thug who was doing just fine without Trump’s help, the list of lousy men whose stock has risen under...

What did I miss?

This is the week I meet my new fall semester classes, which is why I have been a somewhat absent (yes, I know, that’s akin to “a little bit pregnant”) from Limbo for a while. My apologies. My apologies, as well, for having nothing much to say about the Catholic Church having been entirely taken over by Marxists who explicitly, knowingly, and brazenly...

North Korea Dismantling Nukes!!! (in a language in which “dismantling nukes” translates as “Trump cultists are morons”)

Two days ago, there were reports that North Korea has begun dismantling a rocket testing site they had pledged to destroy during Kim Jong-un’s International Respectability Coming Out Party Guest Starring Donald “Big Button” Trump. Rational observers, who do not live for evidence that Trump is the Second Coming — or rather that Jesus Christ was the placeholder for Trump — know that...

Poor, Misunderstood Vladimir: Just a Religious Crusader Who Can’t Catch a Break

And the fascinating e-mails just keep on coming. Jamie Glazov, a relentless alternative media propagandist for Donald Trump, passes along a link to a wonderful article at American Greatness. (Hmm, that name reminds me of something…a campaign slogan, perhaps….) The article is by Michael Finch, who happens to have the very legitimate-sounding title, “president of the David Horowitz Freedom Center in Los Angeles.”...

Toronto Mayor Gets His Gun Violence Problem Backwards

A mass handgun shooting in the city that, in an early example of its typical self-congratulatory and delusional smugness, has long called itself¬† “Toronto the Good,” has just raised this year’s gun murder tally in the city to 27, with another 82 injured. As HuffPost Canada reports: Just after 10 p.m. ET, gunfire was reported in the Danforth and Logan area, which is...

Back in Limbo: How Low Can America Go?

I apologize to regular visitors for my uncharacteristically long absence from Limbo. I have just returned from a visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Canada — but more on that later. For now, I will merely offer a few observations about the week’s big TV event, namely the latest and greatest episode of Trump’s Sellout Summit Series with Global Killers, Season One....

North Korea Actually Expects Trump to Do What He Promised — Imagine That!

The U.S. is boasting that Secretary of State Pompeo’s recent meeting with Kim Jong-un’s tyranny was a great success, with much happy-go-lucky progress being made toward denuclearization. The Kim regime, meanwhile, is singing a very different tune, expressing dismay and frustration that the U.S. seems to be trying to push the Norks into “unilateral denuclearization,” which is not what they signed on for.¬†...
