Personal Musings from the Drain’s Edge

I am almost out of words to express all that I think and feel about the cumulative damage of the Trump era. Today, I can only tiptoe around the periphery of things. The moment I try to step inside the circle and address the heart of the matter, my mind and stomach are paralyzed with revulsion. Even the periphery must be negotiated somewhat...

Observations from Far Above the Stench

I have said all that I have to say about the Trump era, its effects on civil society, its roots in the Republican Party establishment, and its poisoning of the lost, desperate soul of Middle America. In fact, I said most of what really needed to be said about this era five years ago, and tied up the loose ends four years ago....

Would They Do It For Free?

To all of you still half-inclined to put any stock in any “conservative media” entities, from the radio hosts to the podcast and social media hipsters to the publishers of the “major” commentary websites, I have this one question for you — or rather, one question I wish you would put to those “conservative media” entities: Would they do it for free? I...

Open Letter to the Enablers

If you knowingly serve drinks to an alcoholic, are you not guilty of enabling his deterioration? If you give heroine to a junkie, are you not an accomplice in his destruction? If you hide a schizophrenic’s medication, are you not abetting his lapse into unreason?  Today, the world is watching a megalomaniacal narcissist, an infantile sociopath, spiraling toward a crash landing of world-historical...

“But Hillary!”

Today, the incarnate god of tens of millions of Americans who are allowed to vote spoke to his people from the throne room by way of retweeting this, from one of his most prominent legal advocates: President Trump @realDonaldTrump is a genuinely good man. He does not really like to fire people. I bet he dislikes putting people in jail, especially “Republicans.” He...

“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...

If… (Ockham’s Razor Edition)

If a man claiming to be a religious leader has made twenty million dollars of personal profit from his church or other church-affiliated enterprises, then he is not a spiritual leader — he is a businessman. His product is the illusion that immortality can only be reached through his material gain. If a president is not intellectually capable of giving a coherent answer...

On Stating the Obvious (Part Two)

In Part One, I addressed Professor Michael Levitt’s reasonable objections to government lockdowns as a response to the coronavirus pandemic, noting that although he states the obvious lying along the periphery (though nothing I haven’t been saying here in Limbo since February), he completely avoids the heart of the issue, namely tyranny. Today, we turn to the lunatic fringe of obviousness, Ann Coulter....

Update on America’s mental health

Earlier today, I mentioned that Patterico’s Pontifications is just about the only American political website I visit regularly these days. Here’s a representative sample of why that is the case: We will be featuring exclusively conservative and libertarian content. In other words, real news. Don’t miss the Bongino Report, coming very soon. 👇🏻👇🏻https://t.co/j6JXXMznQM — Dan Bongino (@dbongino) November 27, 2019 Yeah! EXCLUSIVELY conservative...

Mercenaries of the Revolution

Over the past couple of days, I have written about the Terrifying Anti-Conservative (Media) Purge being carried out as we speak by that diabolical totalitarian regime, YouTube. To listen to the conservative media millionaires who are pushing the story, you would think this was Kristallnacht in our time. These conservatives-for-profit have successfully wound their consumers, the comfy-chair revolutionaries, into a frenzy of misdirected...
