Trump in a Nutshell

Sorry for turning this into Donald Trump Week here in Limbo. Limbo, properly speaking, is the realm of those who failed to accept Christ as God, which would make Trump, who believes he is God, a visitor from a much lower circle who has long overstayed his welcome. Nevertheless, if you’ll bear with me, I’ll keep this one short and sweet. Former Secretary...

Trump vs. Obama: A Study in Narcissistic Contrasts

In response to my post about President Trump’s “Tariff Man” boast about China, a great friend notes that Trump’s public statements (primarily tweets) almost invariably emphasize the first person singular, a mannerism he shares with his predecessor, and one very much in keeping with both men’s entrenched narcissism. I would only qualify that reasonable comparison with the observation that if there is one...

Chinese Puppy Owner Tugs Leash, Little “Tariff Man” Yips

Just yesterday, an idiot of world-historical proportions boasted about his “strong and personal relationship” with a bloodless tyrant, and how they were in the midst of working out a mutually advantageous trade deal. Today, however, the idiot is out there tweeting warnings about how he might have to impose new tariffs if the tyrant doesn’t play fair. Donald Trump, labelling himself “a Tariff...

Ugh!

President Trump met with all-powerful communist-tyrant-for-life whose portrait is replacing Jesus at churches and whose heartless regime has developed algorithms to monitor Chinese citizens’ internet behavior and punish people judged immoral (read “harmful to the Communist Party”) with summary disappearance or destitution by financial strangulation Xi Jinping in Argentina yesterday, to discuss trade and apparently other things. Here are the highlights of Trump’s...

One and All Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest

From Right Scoop: A six-year-old boy has been raised as a girl since he was two, and his mother is intending to force him to undergo chemical castration at age eight. Mom has engaged a psychologist to diagnose the boy as a transgender girl, in support of her preference for raising the daughter she didn’t have. Meanwhile, the boy’s father insists his son...

Trump Goes Lower, If That’s Possible; and A Word from Rand Paul

A day after announcing that his administration would not take any action to “punish” Saudi Arabia for the revolting murder of a private (non-American) citizen — overall, probably the right decision for U.S. Constitutional reasons — Donald Trump, as usual, has shown himself to be the dumbest and most immoral man ever to pleasure himself as American president. Today, from the smelliest pits...

Should the U.S. “Punish” Saudi Arabia?

In the wake of the CIA’s assessment that Muslim Brotherhood-friendly “journalist” Jamal Khashoggi was indeed murdered on the orders of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, many were anticipating the reaction of Donald Trump (i.e., his handlers), who had promised “severe” punishment for the Saudis should the Turkish government’s allegations turn out to be true. Trump’s latest official response, however, is to prioritize...

Modern Demagoguery, or Why Trump Is Not To Blame

History always and understandably focuses its judgment, criticism, and disdain on the famous leaders who “caused all the damage”: the demagogues, cult figures, or scheming rhetoricians who exploited human weakness and/or difficult times for their own benefit. Rarely do we consider the fuel that powered the destructive excesses of these historic leaders, namely the populations that fell for the demagoguery, joined the cult,...

Why Did Ted Cruz Almost Lose?

Though the most recent polls showed Ted Cruz trouncing Beto O’Rourke in Texas, the actual result was quite close — no surprise there, since polls are fraudulent from the get-go, and will only be as accurate as the laws of probability allow. But what has shaken a lot of Republicans is the fact that Texas, a surefire Republican stronghold, has shown so strongly...

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!...
