“Racist Parts of America’s History”

On July 5th, a group of “protesters” toppled a large public statue of Christopher Columbus in Baltimore’s Little Italy. The statue broke into chunks as it hit the ground. The “protesters” threw the pieces into the harbor. And if Americans of Italian descent find this overtly violent expression of hatred for their heritage upsetting or threatening…well, Columbus was racist. Recently, a group of...

July 4th, Just Another Day Again

Donald Trump will use this July 4th weekend to double-dare American voters to dump his destructive butt on the sidewalk come November, because he could not care less whether anything even remotely resembling America as founded survives his first term. (It will not.) Marxist activists will use the opportunity to remind everyone that this weekend is a celebration of racism, since the “independence”...

Notes from Underground

Just the other day, in the context of discussing the wave of monument destruction currently devouring the American heritage, I parenthetically asked whether, now that even George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, not to mention such lesser lights as Teddy Roosevelt, are being officially banned from the public square, or the public school, as inappropriate viewing, it can be long before Mount Rushmore gets...

Bolton on Trump, Trump on Bolton

Talk about not having a rooting interest! John Bolton is currently trying to sell his “memoir” by representing it as a steaming pile of Trump gossip, “revealing” that the president is an incompetent boob. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is anxiously fighting to have the book’s publication blocked as a national security threat, while simultaneously insisting that it is a pack of lies. I suspect...

American Coast Falls Away

A news article (aka propaganda screed) from Associated Press reports (i.e., carefully frames so as to avoid the real heart of the story) that California’s public school superintendent, Tony Thurmond, has praised and endorsed a decision by the Berkeley Unified School District to rename schools named for “Confederate leaders or other racially charged figures” whose names on the schools “exacerbate feelings of racial...

“But Hillary!”

A quick recap of recent progress in swamp-draining. Over the past two months, Donald Trump, the President of the United States, who actually had the personal authority to make the decisions at issue, has: signed the most superfluous and bankrupting spending bills in U.S. history, in response to an economic “crisis” directly and deliberately precipitated by his own and his party’s destructive “emergency”...

A Few Questions on Self-Enslavement

If you are a reasonably intelligent, somewhat politically ambitious man, and you see that the political class in your society is exploiting a crisis as a means of establishing extremely illiberal powers far beyond the legitimate necessities of the current crisis — powers of the sort that no state ever relinquishes once the precedent has been set and publicly accepted — then if...

Democracy in Vignettes

On September 29th, 2001, less than three weeks after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center, one of America’s tentative popular steps back to some semblance of normalcy was the return of Saturday Night Live (filmed, of course, in New York). In an attempt to earn the right to make silly jokes again, the show began, in typically modern maudlin fashion, with...

Classic Trump

If you were the biggest coward, fraud, and two-bit nothing in the entire history of your nation, and had somehow managed to flim-flam your way to the presidency (thereby revealing the demise of your nation), you would have to be gifted with some kind of genius at denying direct responsibility for…well, for your existence. Donald Trump is just such a “man,” and his...

Everything I will EVER have to say about the George Floyd thing

Let’s get this over with, shall we? I frankly have four million better things to do with my time and energy than spend them on a story that is filled to overflowing with so many of my least favorite things in modern political reality: social justice warriors, Donald Trump, race politics, international progressive activism, white guilt…you get the picture. But a dying nation’s...
