Santa: Superspreader!

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. — I suspect we will not be hearing that middle name too often in the mainstream media — is out there today courageously urging his fellow Americans to overcome their fears, to come together with strength as the American people always have during a crisis…and to hide from each other by avoiding their loved ones at Christmas, by not...

Making Monumentally Historic History, and Other Historic Observations

News headlines inform me today that Joe Biden is making history with his historic cabinet appointments. For one thing, he is historically recycling crotchety progressive establishmentarians from the Obama years at historic rates. Furthermore, he has appointed Democratic history’s biggest liar this side of Hillary Clinton, namely John Kerry, as some sort of historic ambassador to Greta Thunberg. In addition, there are at...

Opinions in Transition

Michelle Obama, I read in a headline today, says of the transition of presidential administrations, “This is not a game.”  This is important news, partly because many people apparently thought this was a game, but mainly because Michelle Obama is a deeply knowledgeable and experienced statesman who understands and profoundly respects the nature and traditions of republican government. Joe Biden, the U.S. President-Elect-by-Media-Pronouncement,...

Random Thoughts: The Aftermath

Joe Biden began his presumptive presidency by promising to “unite” and “heal” America — and also to “reverse” Trump’s policies. In other words, he apparently thinks that a good way to begin the healing process for a fractured nation is to tell seventy million of your fellow citizens that you are going to summarily undo everything they voted to uphold. In four years,...

Trump Declares Victory in His Imaginary Election

Here in Korea, the middle of the afternoon is the wee hours of the morning back in North American time zones, which means I had the dubious pleasure of watching a bunch of Democratic spokesmen on the U.S. news networks interviewing other Democratic spokesmen, as they all pretended to be objective observers of an election in which they have been actively campaigning against...

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...

Musings on the Least Consequential Election in U.S. History

Imagine if all the teams in the National Football League folded today, all colleges cancelled their football programs effective immediately (a good idea by the way), and all teenagers were homeschooled so that there were no high school teams of any kind (my fantasy world). Now imagine that as a replacement for the sudden lack of all qualified football squads, the owners of...

On November 3rd…

Half of the people who vote for Donald Trump will be voting for him because although they despise and distrust the Republican Party establishment behind him, they believe Trump himself is a strong enough man to resist that establishment’s duplicitous machinations. The other half of Trump’s voters will be people who gain comfort and reassurance from the thought that the party establishment is...

Random Electoral Observations

Donald Trump and Joe Biden both seem to have proportionally small hands, although Trump’s are obviously the smaller, as one can see from any photo of him together with his wife, whose hands appear considerably longer than his. Nevertheless, both men are famous for being incapable of keeping their little hands to themselves.  That’s shorthand, if you will, for the basic problem of...

Disasters All Around

According to a headline from The Hill, “Biden slams Trump for calling Fauci a ‘disaster.’” On its face, Biden’s “slam” seems fair. After all, who is the bigger disaster, the government apparatchik who has spent the past eight months on a personal glory tour, deliberately stoking mass panic and actively promoting tangible tyranny for the sake of aggrandizing his own little ego, or...
