Weekend Reflections: Literally and Figuratively

Modern civilization is going to hell in a handbasket. (Hence Limbo.) The political realm, worldwide, is a bottomless pit of pig slop to which there is at present no alternative but abstention. (Hence Limbo.) The philosophical world is a postmodern “Battle of the Books” in which one side does not believe in books, while the other side only believes in books. (Hence Limbo.)...

Tribunal News: Megyn Kelly is This Week’s Brett Kavanaugh

I have absolutely no interest in Megyn Kelly as a broadcaster. I never watch Fox News, and I watch NBC even less than that. Kelly, as far as I can tell from a few clips and a debate or two, was just another of Fox’s bevy of long-legged blonds that Roger Ailes thought looked good in a tiny cocktail dress while sitting on...

October Surprise Packages (Updated!)

The wheels appear to have come off the Democrat jalopy in the final days of the U.S. midterm campaign. One desperate lunge at “momentum” after another has failed miserably, and perhaps even damaged the Democrats’ chances. Standing on the wrong side, the overtly Marxist wrong side, of every single issue, has, lo and behold, hurt their mainstream appeal. Time for an October surprise!...

Trump Threatens to Annihilate Transgenders

Well, actually no. What is apparently happening is that the New York Times has “obtained a memo” allegedly revealing that there is a faction within the administration that would like to establish a legal definition of gender that basically entrenches in the letter of the law the sort of thing that everyone took as a matter of common sense until a few years...

It’s A Man’s World (in Women’s Cycling)

Rachel McKinnon, a man — or what the progressive materialists who define postmodern “reality” would call, redundantly, a “biological man” — has won the UCI Masters World Track Cycling Championship for women. Yes, a man is the women’s cycling champion. Or should I say he won it as a woman, although he is a man? Of course, what I mean by this is...

Canadian Dope

As of October 17th, 2018, Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government, fulfilling the Canadian-style vote bribe to beat all vote bribes, has “legalized” the sale and consumption of cannabis. In a country in the midst of a slow-boiling communist takeover, of course, “legalized” must be written and understood in scare quotes, because what it really means is that the government has decided to allow Canadians...

Boys Will Be Boys in the White House

CNN is reporting breathlessly that an argument — yes, believe it or not, a real shouting match — broke out in the West Wing of the White House Thursday.  A heated argument in the West Wing between chief of staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton over a recent surge in border crossings turned into a shouting match Thursday, two sources...

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...

Elizabeth Warren Solves America’s Race Problem Forever

  Elizabeth Warren lied about her ethnic heritage throughout her academic career, repeatedly and obviously seeking personal and professional (and later political) advantage by claiming to be Native American — or as Harvard Law School boasted of her, its “first woman of color.” Now, in perhaps the greatest fit of accidental genius in the history of idiocy, Warren has tried to verify her...

Economics vs. Astrology

Recently, in reply to my post about the mainstream media’s coverage of hurricanes and other severe weather events, a great friend commented that the climate experts, with their diatribes about “unprecedented” and “historic” weather, are analogous to economists, who build their reputations on pretending to be able to explain the “unexpected” ebbs and flows of the market — as opposed to real experts...
