Like two mean girls scorned…

Donald Trump, the twelve-year-old mean girl, routinely mocks his opponents’ appearance, insults their spouses, shouts “Nyah-nyah, nobody likes you!” at them, and takes great pains to declare — the moment all of his top appointees decide they have no more soul left to sell and run away from him with the scraps of their dignity — that those “best people” he keeps hiring...

Tribalism Redux

This morning, I made my usual bi-monthly visit to my old online home, American Thinker, just to see how dank the place has gotten since my time there. Interestingly, I find that on Monday, their top article was a review of Clint Eastwood’s latest movie, Richard Jewell, by none other than George Zimmerman, he of the infamous Trayvon Martin shooting case. Zimmerman used...

An Object Lesson on Tribalism

The democratic world has reached the “screaming in your sleep” point in the nightmare scenario George Washington warned of in his “Farewell Address,” namely the devolution of political debate into unthinking partisanship. For a perfectly clear object lesson on the danger Washington feared, we need look no further than the case of John Bolton’s relationship with Donald Trump’s Republican Party establishment. When Bolton...

Musings on Impeachment

If Donald Trump is voted out of office by the U.S. Senate, then we’ll finally get to test my theory that all the Trump cult blather about how, if the “deep state” succeeded in their “coup,” this would start a civil war, is a load of bunk, because the cultists are, almost by definition, a bunch of weak sisters who are hiding behind...

More Winning…

Beginning today, Donald Trump will take every opportunity, at his rallies and in his throne room declarations, to take full boastful credit for replacing the “worst deal ever,” NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement), with the best deal ever, USMCA (Union of Socialist Mock-Capitalism Advocates). The bill passed the U.S. Senate 90-10, which, if you are playing along at home, means the majority...

Trump finally gets one right (in that Trumpy way)

Donald Trump tweeted out the following message to the Iranian people protesting (yet again) against their murderous Islamic regime: To the brave, long-suffering people of Iran: I’ve stood with you since the beginning of my Presidency, and my Administration will continue to stand with you. We are following your protests closely, and are inspired by your courage. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January...

More Marvels of Moral Equivalency; plus One Honest Man

Wonders never cease, if by wonders we mean spectacles of moral and intellectual vapidity presented by Canadian men named Trudeau. The Iranian Islamic despotism shot down a passenger jet full of innocent people, dozens of them Canadians of Iranian descent. The Islamic despots are denying that they shot down the jet, although the rest of the world (excepting the usual global apologists for...

Evangelicals for Trump: The New Beatitudes

The ever-shrinking band of Americans who perceive themselves as both sincere Christians and principled conservatives have spent much of the past four years staring at the silent heavens, praying for an answer to their urgent inquiry: How can all these supposed evangelical Christians, including even the alleged leaders of the movement, sell their souls so easily to the cult of Donald Trump? There...

Clash of the Doomsday Cults

For those of us still clinging to some semblance of rational humanity, few things could be more disturbing — or, at least from my perspective in Limbo, more predictable — than the prospect of the world being caught up in a domino chain of competing doomsday cults.  That is where we appear to be headed as I write, with the cult of Donald...

You can’t keep a good demagogue down!

Just twelve hours ago, I was saying “Let’s see Trump top this!” regarding Kim Jong Un’s fantabulous propaganda coup of riding a white horse around a snowy mountain landscape. Trump wouldn’t even have the guts to try to compete with such a beautiful bit of agitprop from his dear friend Jong Un. “He likes me,” Trump even mewed pathetically when reporters asked him...
