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:...

North Korea Delivers Shocking Response

I’m stunned, stunned I tell you! After six weeks of surrendering all their nuclear weapons and infrastructure in meek submission to the massive hands and best words of Mr. Alpha Nobel, North Korea has apparently forgotten who is Daddy around here and started issuing ultimatums again, threatening to cancel their big TV “summit” with the pretend leader of the so-called free world. It...

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...

Was Plato a Trump Supporter?

I have died and gone to Tartarus. There is no other explanation for an article I just read at (gulp, blushing) American Thinker, “Was Plato a Trump-Supporter?” Author Jeffrey Folks manages, in a fairly brisk essay, to prove that (a) he has never read Plato, (b) he has never even watched a coherent YouTube video about Plato, and (c) civilization has ended. Folks...

“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...

Countdown to Civil War

Supporters and opponents of Donald Trump alike are fond of repeating the mantra that if Trump were impeached, there would be a new civil war in America. I wonder. Wouldn’t such a new civil war have to be initiated by people so engaged and passionate that they would be prepared to die fighting for what they espouse? And yet although Trump’s true believers...

Legitimizing North Korea

The world is breathless. Donald Trump’s fan club is preparing its Nobel Peace Prize party. Moon Jae-in is smiling like a man who just secured his place in Korean history. And Kim Jong-un, the enigma at the center of this show, is shaking hands with everyone, promising to end the Korean War. It’s all a dream come true — but for whom? To...

Trump Won the Battle; Is Clinton Winning the War?

As reported at the Daily Beast, a new book written by journalist Amy Chozick, who traveled with Hillary Clinton’s campaign, revisits an important, conveniently-forgotten theme of the 2016 U.S. presidential election: during the primaries, the Clintons and their media allies were all in for Trump. From early on, the Clinton camp saw Trump as an enemy to encourage, Chozick writes. During the campaign…...

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....
