From Champ to Chump in a Progressive Minute

Roger Federer has won more Grand Slam tennis titles than any other man in history. He has spent more weeks as the number one ranked player in the world than anyone else, including 237 consecutive weeks at one stage (that’s four-and-a-half years, for the arithmetically challenged). By any standard, he merits the unqualified epithet “Champion.” Or rather, he did. Today, he is just...

Random Thoughts on Things People Tell Themselves

Most Americans who voted for Trump, or are excited about doing so in 2020, think the Democrats’ impeachment process is a joke. Most Americans who did not vote for Trump, or are vehement about not doing so in 2020, think Trumpster objections to the methods and motives of the Democrats’ impeachment process are a joke.

Teenage climate communist prop Greta Thunberg just gave a speech at the UN in which she threw a proxy temper tantrum at her parents (whom she thinly disguised as the adults of the world), spewing out her promise to hate, hate, hate them forever, and never, never, never forgive them for “stealing her childhood,” “betraying her,” and “failing her” — by making her...

“Do what I want,” belligerent child demands

A sixteen-year-old Swedish girl, Greta Thunberg, sits sternly, arms folded, facing members of the United States Congress, the elected representatives of the American people. Having previously submitted a decrepit, thoroughly discredited UN document (the IPCC’s climate Armageddon fantasy report), the earliest iterations of which the congressmen have been familiar with since before this girl was born, she now declares, peremptorily, “I don’t want...
