The Will of God

Well, I did it again. After days of warning myself not to do it, I finally caved in and typed “American Thinker” into my internet browser on the eve of the U.S. election, like one who just cannot resist the urge to peek at the drunken girl across the street to see whether she is actually vomiting. I felt a little dirty visiting...

Things That Cannot End Soon Enough

It is possible that Donald Trump will lose the presidency on November 3rd — praise be to God. It is equally possible that Joe Biden will win the presidency that day — blame be to man. If your goal during a virus pandemic is to prevent anyone from getting the virus, you have already failed by default. If your goal is to slow...

On Gossip

A broken clock is right twice a day, as they say. It is with this adage in mind that I note, so as not to be remiss, that Pope Francis (aka Francis the Talking Marxist) finally met God’s hour hand for a passing moment. Specifically, during his weekly address in St. Peter’s Square in early September, Francis strayed from his usual themes of...

Coronae, Divine and Human

There is good news in everything, for all suffering will be redeemed. Among the good news in our collective death dance into tyranny, for instance, is the happy truth, revealed by stark contrast (like the sun’s corona, which appears only during a total eclipse), that our greatest follies, and the great fools who lead them, are mere ephemeral events in the cosmic cycle.

When the Ugly Truth Just Isn’t Funny Anymore

Throughout these months of trumped-up mass hysteria over the Pandemic that Ate a Planet, the progressive paternalists and their slavish multitudes have masked the dishonorable motives behind their drive to lock down entire nations and shut down entire economies — power lust in the case of the paternalists, mortal fear for their own physical existence in that of the slaves — with one...

Iran for Progressive Dummies

The world’s progressive political establishment and its media torch-bearers have spent so many years lying and obfuscating on behalf of tyranny, in the name of defending anything that might be seen as useful in their definitive and never-ending war against individual liberty, that they have apparently obscured the truth even from themselves. Thus, they are now, fittingly, subject to what Socrates, in the...

Limbo’s Traditional Christmas Greeting

Many years ago, I wrote a Christmas essay for American Thinker. Because I am I, and my preoccupations are as they are, the piece was neither nostalgic nor sentimental in character, but rather a reflection on the ultimate civilizational significance of Christmas. That is to say, I was not primarily concerned with the religious or dogmatic meaning of the holiday, but instead with...

Reflections on Two Unspeakables: “Debt” and “Merry Christmas”

Donald Trump has proudly exposed yet more evidence that he is nothing but a Washington establishment puppet, the ultimate booby prize for a “grassroots” very long on “grass” and very short on “roots.”  I will be signing our 738 Billion Dollar Defense Spending Bill today. It will include 12 weeks Paid Parental Leave, gives our troops a raise, importantly creates the SPACE FORCE,...

Francis the Talking Fool, aka That Crazy Pontiff

Pope Francis, apparently envious of all the youth-baiting appeal of international Marxism’s prop du jour, teenage communist mouthpiece Greta Thunberg, is out there riding Greta’s coattails, declaring that the Catholic Church, of which he is ostensibly still a member, is actively considering changing the catechism to include “the sin against ecology,” or “ecological sin,” or — my favorite phrasing — “ecocide” as part...

When is abortion murder?

A good reader, who likes to put me on the spot to justify my moral outlook, has challenged me, on the subject of abortion, to specify at exactly what point the killing of a human fetus or embryo may be classified as a murder. As he points out, many U.S. states, like many jurisdictions around the world, treat the violent termination of an...
