How Trump Was Used in Korea

Moon Jae-in is a lifelong, hardcore progressive, which is to say he is a neo-Marxist at heart, though he cloaks it in bland business suits and talk of “peace” and “democracy.” Many of his domestic policies since winning the election to replace impeached Park Geun-hye are standard-issue progressive “reform” assaults, such as imposing sweeping new regulations on private businesses. But nothing he has...

Moral Reasoning 101

Colin Kaepernick, a second-rate professional football player (I defer to others’ judgment, as I haven’t watched an NFL game in years), has made himself a hero among young people who mistake “coolness” for heroism by kneeling during the national anthem. Now Nike, which aims its products at young customers who mistake “coolness” for heroism, is exploiting Kaepernick’s popularity to enhance its profits. In...

Trump: God’s Gift to the World’s Puny Men

One of the strange but predictable results of Donald Trump’s presidency is that in his ignorance he has found remarkably inventive ways to elevate and aggrandize some of the world’s most absurd and/or dangerous leaders. Leaving aside Vladimir Putin, Trump’s favorite bully, but a thug who was doing just fine without Trump’s help, the list of lousy men whose stock has risen under...

What did I miss?

This is the week I meet my new fall semester classes, which is why I have been a somewhat absent (yes, I know, that’s akin to “a little bit pregnant”) from Limbo for a while. My apologies. My apologies, as well, for having nothing much to say about the Catholic Church having been entirely taken over by Marxists who explicitly, knowingly, and brazenly...

Weekend Reflection: John McCain vs. Donald Trump

As word came that John McCain had discontinued treatment for his brain cancer, one knew it was only a matter of milliseconds before America’s national brain cancer, Trumpism, metastasized into a mass of agonizingly idiotic cultist attacks against the senator. What better opportunity for tearing down a man’s life and legacy, the malignancy reasoned, than the moment of his final trial? And so...

Trump’s OJ-Style Confession

Addressing the plea deal declaration by his longtime legal fixer, Michael Cohen, that the hush money payments he arranged for Trump’s random sex partners were made at Trump’s personal direction, Donald Trump has sent out his personal legal representative du jour, Rudy “I’ll-do-anything-to-stay-relevant” Giuliani, to call Cohen a liar, and claim, absurdly, that Cohen’s earlier statements covering for Trump, while he was Trump’s...

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity

Donald Trump has gotten himself into a pickle by issuing hush money payments during his presidential campaign to (at least) two bimbos he bedded years ago. Thinking this over again and again, I keep coming back to the question I wish to raise here: Why? Why, that is, should Trump, or his political handlers, have thought such payments advisable in the first place?...

Conservative Creepy

Creepy lawyer Michael Cohen signs a plea deal in which he pronounces himself guilty of federal crimes, and implicates Donald Trump in those crimes by declaring that he committed some of them at “the candidate’s” direction, for the express purpose of influencing an election campaign. Mark Levin, a lawyer, along with a radio guest who is also a lawyer, buck each other and...

Social Media as Public Utility

Donald Trump, playing to his hordes as usual — the demagogue’s trap — is out on social media attacking social media for “censoring” “Republican/Conservative voices.” (Clever slash there, since the Republicans as a party are in no way connected to anything remotely like conservatism, but they always use these conjunctive forms to hide that fact, thereby sucking na├»ve conservatives into the establishment vortex.)...

The Greatest Scandal in American History

In a Twitter tirade the other day, Agent Orange (I guess I’m thinking of his “personal Vietnam”) spent the evening on his throne watching his favorite propaganda outlet, and then immediately tweeting favorable quotes about himself from all his talking baboons. I do not watch Fox News, and have no respect for anyone who would be hired there, let alone anyone who would...
