The Second Coming of God Demands that Americans be Loyal to….

For years, Republicans have recited the mantra that American Jews who vote for the Democratic Party are delusional and self-loathing, essentially the flipside of the argument Democrats always use against blacks who vote Republican — though of course, “In our case it’s true!” This desperate urge of both sides in America’s phony “binary choice” war to corral all people into blocs and collectives,...

Trump’s Deliberative Processes

As a child, I often lay awake at dawn conceiving of fanciful notions like this: I blow into the air in my room, and some dust on my night table is swept up in the breeze and sent sailing about the room, and then an alternate breeze from the window carries that dust out of the room, followed by subsequent little gusts throughout...

The Voice of Tyranny

Here is what progressive totalitarianism looks like. Read carefully, for the following statement has so much wrong with it that I am sure I will not come close to exhausting all of its outrages in this one short post: Serious discussions are taking place between House and Senate leadership on meaningful Background Checks. I have also been speaking to…

No Collusion! (Just Good Old-Fashioned Surrender)

Last year, when Trump’s supporters, Trump’s skeptics, and many of Trump’s alleged Democratic opponents were chanting or at least conceding that a Nobel Peace Prize might be in the offing in light of his “new approach” to the North Korean threat, I was almost a lone voice calling the whole thing a typical Trump flim-flam show, and highlighting the essential surrender to communists...

Yes, he is that weak

Lest anyone imagine that Trump’s boasting this week about his ability to bankrupt a nation even faster than he can bankrupt a business is limited to matters of mere economic survival, the Orange God himself has taken pains to remind Americans that he is just as brave and unprecedented in promoting moral bankruptcy.   As Dana over at Patterico’s site observes: It speaks...

Understanding Trump’s Strategy on the Debt

Mitch McConnell’s Senate has joined Nancy Pelosi’s House in passing what Twitter Cheerleader Extraordinaire and Chairman of the Superfluous Capitalization Club of America Donald Trump quaintly calls a “Budget Deal,” as though the U.S. Federal Government’s formal continuation of its longstanding principle of perpetual limitless debt increases has any business being described with the word “budget.” Does the operative principle here bear any...

Ceiling Unlimited for America!

Donald Trump is praising and endorsing the brilliant deal just worked out between his owner, Mitch McConnell, and the woman who calls him a racist, Nancy Pelosi, which will raise the debt ceiling all the way to Heaven, thus ensuring that the U.S. can continue to bankrupt itself into oblivion right there in front of God and everybody, and to hell with future...

Quick Takes: Discrimination and Caring

Senator Tim Kaine (Communist-Va.) claims that President Trump’s moronic tweets urging four lightweight socialist activist congresswomen to go back where they came from “violated federal anti-discrimination law.”  Maybe he’s right. If so, then the United States is already a full-out tyranny, and you can stop the electoral dog-and-pony show right now, and proceed straight to the secret police and gulags. There should not...

Is Trump a Racist?

I have answered this essay’s title question before — I said Trump is not a racist — but the latest brouhaha he has caused with his “go back to where you came from” tweets seems to warrant a revisiting of the issue. Today, I received an e-mail from a long-time reader, asking a question I have seen a lot over the past twenty-four...

My take on Trump’s thought-provoking “Go back where you came from” reflections

Donald Trump is an idiot. We all know that, when we are not lying to ourselves. He is also a vain, megalomaniacal blowhard. We all know that, too. Furthermore, he will do or say absolutely anything that he perceives as being to his advantage at this millisecond — where “his advantage,” given that he is an idiot and a vain, megalomaniacal blowhard, typically...
