If I Were an American Progressive…

If I were an American progressive, I would be angry as hell at the Democratic Party’s decision to do to my movement — the party’s true grassroots — what the Republicans have done for decades to constitutional conservatives, namely tell us to cool our heels at the back of the bus and not make too much noise during an election campaign. If I...

Biden’s VP Pick

In this year of revolutionary activism, the DNC’s predictable decision to prop up Joe Biden as the party’s presidential nominee placed Biden’s handlers (a term more apt and all-encompassing in Biden’s case than is typical among presidential candidates) in the emasculating position of having to effectively promise a vice-presidential pick who would satisfy the morally infantile tonalities of this American progressive moment, specifically...

America: More Fool You

I have often said, of the 2016 U.S. presidential election, that the extent to which the Washington establishment now owns the souls of the American people may be measured by the fact that the supposed “two-party system” presented a choice between arguably the two worst human beings in the entire country, and almost every voter — a hundred and twenty-eight million adults —...

Bernie Sanders vs. The Democratic Establishment

The Democratic Party’s half of the Washington establishment is in knots over the strong primary season start by Bernie Sanders. They would apparently prefer to be represented in the 2020 presidential election by a senile compulsive-lying dimwit, a Harvard compulsive-lying leftist-of-convenience, a billionaire weenie who thinks the government ought to have the authority to restrict your sugar intake, or someone named Amy Klobuchar....

A New Yorker Knows

Now that Michael Bloomberg is being foisted upon Democratic primary voters as the establishment’s last stab at stopping the (more overtly) communist juggernaut, people are hearkening back to a supposedly tough comment he made a few years ago about his potential 2020 presidential rival Donald Trump: “I’m a New Yorker and I know a con when I see one.” As a commenter at...

America: Another Week’s Demolition Complete

Democrats must be flummoxed by Trump’s “foreign policy.” He has stolen all the moves they used to do behind closed doors or (accidently) into hot mics, and he has turned those secret anti-American subversions into boastful, brazen betrayals of American interests and America’s allies — and his supporters shout “MAGA!” and “Nobel Prize!” for each and every betrayal. Imagine if Obama had known...

Passing Thoughts

The Democratic Party’s eager pursuit of impeachment, grabbing all the headlines and dictating the news cycle during these early days of presidential primary season, is a sure signal that they know their current crop of candidates would be unlikely to beat Donald Trump in 2020. They need to cripple Trump terribly, if not outright remove him from office, in order to give that...

Democratic debate: 7 things to watch for

The title of this article repeats a headline I just read at MSN’s homepage. Since I think we already know what sort of things a mainstream American news source (i.e., progressive authoritarian propaganda voice) is likely to recommend that you “watch for” during a Democratic debate, I have decided to offer an alternative, non-progressive list of my own. 7 things to watch for...

Democratic Debate: Bobbing for Communists

As usual, I will preface the following comments about the latest Democratic presidential debate by saying, “Please! Do you seriously think I would watch two minutes of a Democratic presidential debate?” Two minutes, no. But one minute and twenty-three seconds, on the promise of seeing a young punk mock an old man’s memory loss on national television merely to score cheap political points?...

Helping Elizabeth Warren Understand

During the second Democratic Party presidential debate (depending on how you count them), someone named John Delaney apparently had the audacity to suggest that many candidates were throwing around promises like candy, rather than accepting the limitations of government action and economic realities. Against Delaney’s daring introduction of common sense into a de facto rally of the Communist Party USA — as if...
