Trump’s New Campaign Slogan Unveiled

The Taliban, a terrorist organization that wishes to rule Afghanistan as the nightmare version of the He-Man Woman-Haters Club, that supported the Al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. in 2001, and that has been at war with U.S. and Afghan forces since those attacks, has just killed several people, including Americans, with a car bomb, because that’s what they do when they are...

Trump Strikes Deal to End Immigration Crisis!

Or this: Donald Trump, a 1930s-style progressive protectionist who believes that U.S. consumers having more money to spend on foreign products than the consumers of other nations have to spend on American products is a bad thing for America, spent several days threatening to impose a big new tax on Americans — he called it a tariff on imported Mexican goods — unless...

Christmas Turkey; The Teacher

Merry Christmas to Everyone Here in Limbo! It’s my honor and pleasure to have you here in my home away from home — which is to say my home in a world that no longer has a place for the likes of me. Two items for this Christmas, one new and typically dreadful, one very old and eternally joyful. The contrast will, I...

Last Man Standing? Another “Conservative Media” Outlet Bites the Dust

During the 2016 Republican primaries, most of the “conservative media,” print and radio (television is not even worth talking about), revealed itself once and for all as nothing but so many mouthpieces for the GOP establishment; in it for the money, the squishy “insider” feelings of pseudo-power, or both. For those of us observing this from the outside, it was almost dizzying to...

Thoughts on the Wing: More U.S. Midterm Musings (With Even More — and More — Updates!)

Predictably, the day after the midterms, Republican voters are divided on the meaning of the results. Hardcore Trump cultists are following their lord and master in calling this loss of the House of Representatives a great victory, since at least the GOP held the Senate. The all-night social media “conservative movement” types are in the depths of despair, as they were just sure...

Demagogue Moron Tells The Truth, Sub-Moron Cultists Cheer

A few hours back, I mentioned having made the mistake of watching live coverage of yet another of America’s dime-a-dozen Nuremberg rallies, and quickly clicking away in tedium as the Dimwit-in-Chief told his flock how much he loves tariffs. I therefore missed the part where he openly admitted that Fox News is not merely in the tank for him, but is the tank....

Trump Rallies the Dupes

While reading a news item on the CBS website about how China and Russia are flagrantly violating the sanctions against North Korea, while Kim Jong-un continues to develop his nuclear weapons program and Mike Pompeo retreats on his over-confident rhetoric of two weeks ago, I happened to notice that the site was plugging live coverage of a Trump rally in Ohio. Being in...

North Korea Dismantling Nukes!!! (in a language in which “dismantling nukes” translates as “Trump cultists are morons”)

Two days ago, there were reports that North Korea has begun dismantling a rocket testing site they had pledged to destroy during Kim Jong-un’s International Respectability Coming Out Party Guest Starring Donald “Big Button” Trump. Rational observers, who do not live for evidence that Trump is the Second Coming — or rather that Jesus Christ was the placeholder for Trump — know that...

Trump Declares, “Soy libertad!” (And Trumpservatives Eat It Up)

When Trump lovers compare him to Andrew Jackson (as Bannon does) and Teddy Roosevelt (as Pence does), the accuracy of their comparisons lies not in the fame and glory accorded Trump’s historic predecessors, but in the defining trait that Trump shares with Jackson and Roosevelt: an unblinking faith, not in liberty, but in the expanded authority of a paternalistic presidency to manage society...

Random Rants

Trump is at it again, congratulating Turkish Islamist thug, opposition persecutor, and press censor Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan on his recent election victory as de facto ruler for life, just as he congratulated Russian KGB thug, opposition persecutor, and press censor Vladimir Putin on his recent election victory as de facto ruler for life, and just as he congratulated Chinese Communist Party thug, opposition...
