The Root Cause of Gun Control

Less than one week after an empty shell of a man shot dozens of innocent people in Christchurch, New Zealand, that country’s prime minister has announced a ban on “military-style semi-automatic and assault rifles in tough new gun laws.”  “Tough new gun laws” is the sort of phraseology the progressive media uses to suggest a brave leader’s no-nonsense approach to justice, thereby masking...

Trump Surrenders (Again)

In my initial remarks on Donald Trump’s failed second summit with Kim Jong-un, I quipped that no deal could be reached because the two sides couldn’t find anything else for Trump to concede to Kim after last year’s summit. Of course, I was only joking — there is naturally plenty for Trump to concede, and in spite of reaching no deal this week,...

Squealers and Dealers (Updated: Trump Redefines Slime for the Ages)

Michael Cohen, longtime friend and legal fixer for the world’s most famous slime ball, has testified before the House of Representatives that his former boss was — shockingly — a slime ball.  The Trump cult’s defense of their slime ball against Cohen’s testimony — and I include a lot of elected Republicans among the cultists at this point — is that Cohen is...

Trump’s Foreign Policy, Summarized

After two-plus years of watching Donald Trump in action as President of the United States of America — I use that full title in the hopes of jabbing his somnambulant idolaters into some awareness of what they have created with their childish fanaticism — his governing style and priorities have become quite clear. And in no arena are his implicit principles of governance...

Nobel Prize, Here We Come!

Steve Wood at Newsblender asks, with regard to the upcoming Trump-Kim Clown Show II, why anyone should put any stock in these “negotiations,” or trust that North Korea’s intentions this time around are any different than in previous moments of false hope, such as during the Clinton administration. Here, yet again, and for what it’s worth, are three main differences between this time...

Fat Cat Foreign Policy Hypocrisy

Can someone please explain to me why the Trump administration is taking a hardline, seemingly principled stand against Maduro’s crumbling socialist regime in Venezuela, while petting and praising Kim Jong-un’s far more deadly, far longer-lasting communist catastrophe in North Korea? Venezuela is of relatively little strategic interest to the United States, while North Korea is situated at the heart of a major point...

Pre-Summit Hype, Communist Thug Style

There is some reporting this week that Kim Jong-un is trying to shore up his hold on power in an emaciated and dying “nation” by culling his population of anyone who still has money or food.  According to Andrew Jeong at The Wall Street Journal, Kim has exiled, imprisoned or executed suspected opponents of his diplomatic outreach to the U.S. and South Korea,...

American Weakness

I read a little post at the anti-Trump news site Newsblender, regarding Russia’s recent hardline position with Japan over some disputed islands, and Putin’s implied warning to Japan to sever its strategic alliance with the U.S. One reader’s comment on that post observed, “Russia sees a weak American leader. They will take each and every opportunity to flex their muscles.” You could literally...

Red New Deal, Green New Deal

Donald Trump stood in front of his nation and the world during his State of the Union Address and, for the umpteenth time, boasted of his excellent relationship with the talented and wonderful communist punk Kim Jung Un. Meanwhile, the new vanguard of the Democratic Party, in defiance of their party’s establishment enforcer, Nancy Pelosi, has boldly released Mao’s Cultural Revolution manifesto as...

Trump-Kim Summit II: Farce Becomes Tragedy

What a great idea! Donald Trump and his team of trained monkeys are insisting that the newly-announced setting for their second “We’d Legitimize Venezuela Too If They Had Nukes” extravaganza, namely Vietnam, makes an important symbolic statement about reconciliation and overcoming conflict.  Yes it does. It makes the statement that the U.S., once dead-set on resisting and curtailing communism, is now prepared to...
