Bad Poetry

Bill Gates, who has devoted much of his adult life to increasingly manipulative efforts to insinuate himself into the private life of every human being on the planet, has suddenly had the tables turned, and found his private life the subject of everyone else’s insinuations. This is poetic justice, to be sure, but not the kind of poetry a decent society would relish....

Too Big to Succeed (British Edition)

These days, the standard of newsworthiness in “protest movements,” at least in North America, seems to be “The smaller the bigger.” The news media has taken to shamelessly reporting with the utmost seriousness events that may be represented with headlines such as, “Dozens gather across the country to protest Anti-Asian hate.” The importance of a “protest” or “movement” is now determined, in other...

When Punks Rule the Earth

If you want freedom, you must fight for it. Let us examine the meaning of “fighting.” Vladimir Putin ordered his most prominent and popular Russian critic, Alexei Navalny, murdered by poison, as has been his standard operating procedure in dealing with all political opponents throughout his thinly-veiled dictatorship. The dying Navalny was transported to Germany so that doctors there could save his life....

Criminal Law Today

In 2021, if you live anywhere in the Western democratic world, you are guilty of systemic oppression, domestic terrorism, and/or hate crimes, if you express any opinion, or are even found through indirect means to have recently (aka at any time over the past thirty years) entertained any thought or rumination, which is now judged by the court of progressive preemptive condemnation to...

Random Notes: Bibi, Berlin, Biden

Benjamin Netanyahu, a hero of the North American “conservative media” (because he is almost as big a fraud as they are), has put Israel in the lead in universal (fake) vaccination for a wildly exaggerated non-cataclysmic pandemic — by selling his entire nation’s medical records (i.e., personal privacy) to Pfizer, the pharmaceutical behemoth providing the under-tested pseudo-vaccine. Yes, he really did that. In...

If Trump Were A Russian Agent…

If Vladimir Putin had carefully groomed and trained a man to become President of the United States for the purpose of destroying the nation’s soul, turning the country into warring factions that hate and distrust one another at the most fundamental level, and planting a fulltime apologist for Putin himself right in the White House — one willing to stand in open and...

Trump’s Closest Non-McConnell Ally Strikes Again

It appears that Vladimir Putin, whose best interests and long-term designs were key priorities of Donald Trump’s foreign policy throughout his one-term presidency, has once again tried to assassinate his influential public critic, Alexei Navalny. This time, Navalny was poisoned with a Soviet-era nerve agent associated with many previous deaths of Putin critics, while he was being transferred from Siberia to Germany for...

Random Reflections on Tyranny and Thugocracy

If I were an old man, and I were told that for the sake of my health, the government was going to universally restrict normal life throughout my community indefinitely, causing widespread unemployment, poverty, small business failures, suicides, untreated cancers, mass hysteria, and a general breakdown of civility and goodwill among my fellow citizens, would I thank the government for protecting me at...

“Fools, Nomads, Countrymen”

With the rarest, almost non-existent exceptions, every so-called “conservative” radio host, television pundit, website publisher, or political writer in America — in short, the entire faction of the public political discussion that used to tout itself as the “alternative” or “conservative” media — has sacrificed all claims to conservative principle, or at least rational consistency, over the past four years. These people have...

Coronavirus Context: A Personal View

Here are some numbers that might interest you — or might not. In fact, I really don’t care if they do or don’t. I report them for the record, for posterity, for my soul, or merely for the satisfaction of typing what I would rather not scream. Ten: The approximate number of humans on this planet — beyond my friendly band of Limbo...
