North Korea Actually Expects Trump to Do What He Promised — Imagine That!

The U.S. is boasting that Secretary of State Pompeo’s recent meeting with Kim Jong-un’s tyranny was a great success, with much happy-go-lucky progress being made toward denuclearization. The Kim regime, meanwhile, is singing a very different tune, expressing dismay and frustration that the U.S. seems to be trying to push the Norks into “unilateral denuclearization,” which is not what they signed on for. ...

Mission Accomplished: The Trump Cult Exposed

Every few days, out of a curiosity more of the morbid than the intellectual variety, I take a deep breath and spend a minute or two perusing the latest collection of repetitive, illogical, myopic cult-bait being chummed at American Thinker. One of the standard bloody morsels offered up for the Trumpiranhas is the daily serving of vitriol against the evil “NeverTrumpers.” The metaphor...

Fox News Winning!

Fox News is…Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell (whose wife Elaine Chao was on the board of directors), Larry Kudlow, John Bolton, a dozen bimbos who vote R, and Sean Hannity. Not merely a media ally of the Republican Party establishment, Fox is the establishment’s official press office. Throughout the 2016 primaries, Fox was effectively Donald Trump’s campaign headquarters and damage control center. Now, of...

The Most Fun President Ever

Over at my old haunt American Thinker, which a dear friend has aptly redubbed “The People’s Observer,” Sundays used to be reserved for items of a more theoretical nature, items by newer writers the editors were not sure would find a wide readership, and a regular “Week in Review”-style lead article by establishment-friendly columnist Clarice Feldman. This week Feldman, a breathless Trumpette —...

Peace In Our Time: North Korea Edition

Here’s a new headline from the Washington Post: “North Korea working to conceal key aspects of its nuclear program, U.S. officials say.” Can you believe it? Frankly, I can’t. I mean, Super-Genius promised Americans that the North Korean threat was over, and that they could sleep well, secure in the knowledge that Kim Jong-un was a great guy after all.  But seriously, the...

Honorable, Smart, Funny Kim Jong-un; and a Tweet from George Washington

Kim Jong-un, whom Donald Trump recently praised more effusively and unqualifiedly than he has ever praised any American president, has, apparently as part of his enthusiastic surrender to Trump’s giant hands and amazing chess mastery, spent the past couple of weeks upgrading his nuclear weapons program and executing an army officer who ordered extra food for his starving troops. Had Barack Obama chosen...

Should Harley Get a Restraining Order Against Donnie?

From Right Scoop, we learn that Donald Trump’s tyrannical tirades and threats against private companies who don’t play his game his way are getting downright personal, and in the most embarrassing way possible: Harley-Davidson should stay 100% in America, with the people that got you your success. I’ve done so much for you, and then this. Other companies are coming back where they...

Weekend Reflection: Where There’s a Will…

  George Will, elder statesman of American conservative punditry, is urging readers to vote for Democrats in the 2018 midterms, in effect endorsing Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House. Naturally, the erudite Will has an elegant rationalization for supporting panderers to leftist activists — so elegant it almost sounds like dispassionate reasoning, until one remembers that hypocrisy masquerading as dispassionate reasoning is...

White House Inadvertantly Reveals the Meaning of Public Education

“Trump Reveals RADICAL PLAN to CUT DOWN the GOVERNMENT” shouts the headline on the usually Trump-skeptical Right Scoop. Wow, another RADICAL PLAN! Like the radical, Nobel Prize-baiting plan to beg North Korea to trade their nuclear weapons in for guarantees of perpetual security for the Kim regime, exactly the intention of the Kim family’s nuclear program. Or like promising to build a wall...

On Being Outside

I officially swore off wasting any more mental energy on Donald Trump’s reality TV presidency this week, and determined, as I do when I feel overly mired in the transient insanities of our moment of civilizational disintegration, to turn to the eternal. I shall, however, cheat a little on my promise — but only to the degree necessary to demonstrate a philosophical point!...
