On Stating the Obvious (Part One)

Michael Levitt is a Nobel Prize-winning professor at Stanford University. Ann Coulter is a cerebral hemorrhage masquerading as a political commentator. Both spoke the truth over the weekend — or rather, both stated the obvious, while conveniently avoiding or overlooking the deepest implications of their respective truths. First, today, the rational side of the equation. (Coulter can wait until I find a more...

Marginalizing the Will to Freedom

On Monday, a circuit judge in Oregon, responding to a lawsuit by several churches, declared the state’s lockdown order unconstitutional, effectively striking down the regulations. To no sentient being’s surprise, the Oregon supreme court has quickly reinstated totalitarianism in answer to an “emergency motion” by the governor, pending a “review” by the supreme court — i.e., until the state’s judicial lackeys can figure...

The Emperor’s New Euphemism: “Coronavirus-Related”

Yesterday, I saw a big red breaking news headline announcing millions of new “COVID-19 related unemployment claims” in the US. Such phrasing has become part of the vernacular during this fabricated global crisis. You have seen it often, so ubiquitously that you may have become slightly numb to it, as I have, and as we are all meant by our masters to do....

Trump calls Fauci’s remarks “not acceptable”

So reads the first headline greeting me on the front page of this morning’s edition of The People’s Daily Panic.  Of course they are not acceptable. They are not acceptable to Trump because they undermine his optics of being in command of this “crisis” like the great wartime president he is (in his dreams). They are not acceptable to people who give two...

On Deliberately Misreading the Facts

We now learn that members of the White House staff and the secret service, and even one of Donald Trump’s personal valets, have tested positive for the coronavirus. This is announced by the breathless propaganda wing of American totalitarian progressivism — that is, the mass media — as shocking news, terrifying news, hysteria-inducing news. The New York Times, America’s leading purveyor of reality...

The Rule of Law vs. The Law of Rules

Speaking of Florida, it was the weirdest trip Jane and I have ever been on. The panic and chaos were unbelievable right up until the time when the place we were at became a ghost town. Jane and I were actually confronted by (2) deputies, in body armor, and ordered off the beach we were walking upon. I received that e-mail from my dear...

Musings in Descent

Today, nothing upsets the earnest and panic-stricken more than comparing the coronavirus to the flu. “How dare you?” they object, as though you had just called their wives trollops. They need this virus to be something of an entirely different order, something so utterly incomparable and unprecedented. Why? To justify their fears, which they are loving more than life itself at the moment....
