Government By Lawyers

Reading Senator Ted Cruz’s latest mealy-mouthed lies on behalf of his owners, Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump, this time regarding the supposed “historical precedent” of McConnell’s hypocrisy in rushing to confirm Trump’s supreme court nominee weeks before an election, I found myself returning to the question we have all asked ourselves at one time or another: Why are so many politicians in the...

Ted Cruz is Full of Beans

Last year, Ted Cruz publicly vowed to boycott Nike products, after the company announced it would stop selling shoes with the Betsy Ross flag on the recommendation of its progressive athlete poster child, Colin Kaepernick. The senate’s great champion of the U.S. Constitution (and of anti-constitutional demagogue Donald Trump) trumpeted his Nike boycott as a proud assertion of the right to free speech....

Never saw that coming! (snicker)

So Donald the Baby-Brained Demagogue has commuted the sentence of Roger Stone, one of the leading cretins responsible for foisting his moronic dung heap of a presidency upon a once-great nation that will have finished its last writhing moments of life by the time he is carted out of the White House and back to the trash-TV moral dumpster where he belongs. Gee,...

“Selective” Principles are Not Principles

An object lesson in hypocrisy, if you please. Here is Ted Cruz, aka Lyin’ Ted, aka the most shameless political climber and sycophant this side of his hero Donald Trump, calling out — oh, imagine the courage! — a moronic professional athlete, Lebron James, whom everyone in America is excoriating today.  From Alt-Right Poop: Cruz says that Lebron is a “hell of a...

Carly Fiorina Proves a Point

I have a question for all the old Ted Cruz supporters from the 2016 primaries who have since chosen to support Donald Trump. I mean the real Cruz supporters, not just the many who now claim he was their first choice, in order to convince us that their “Trump is God” boxer shorts were the result of an honest, objective reassessment of all...

Exposed! Americans Are Sheep!

Ted Cruz chaired a deeply important hearing in the U.S. Senate on a theme sure to win him favor with the Trump cult, which of course is the chief motivation for everything he has done for the past two and a half years. Continuing his paternalistic, optics-mongering vendetta against the big internet companies, Cruz “proved” what everyone already knew, namely that Google rigs...

Random Thoughts: Ted Cruz, Death Cults, Selfless Billionaires

Today, I see the following headline on Right Scoop: “WATCH: Ted Cruz GRILLS Google rep on allegations of anti-Trump bias exposed by Project Veritas.”  I can understand why Lyin’ Ted thinks no one should be allowed to show “bias” against his beloved daddy. But shouldn’t he have the emotional maturity to at least keep this fawning hero-worship to the privacy of his own...

Political Correctness, Conservative-Style

One of the dangers of the mass forgetfulness endemic to late modernity is that it fosters simplistic, one-sided thinking — tribal thinking, as people like to say these days — in which the members of either faction in any of our ubiquitous “binary choices” refuse, as a matter of principle, to assess or reassess their own premises, preferring instead to regard their sheer...

Random Thoughts on Principle or the Lack Thereof

Socrates and Plato made their criticism of the Greek sophists a central part of their respective philosophic missions. The core of their criticism: The sophists were paid teachers, who as such had a vested material interest in pleasing their listeners, rather than educating them. Thus, fathers brought their sons to the sophists for lessons in how to succeed in practical, political life. The...

Reading the Tea Leaves on Trump

For several days, Donald Trump threatened to close the U.S./Mexico border (whatever that means) due to the immigration crisis. While many Trump fans cheered on his latest tough stance (Trump is, in the end, nothing but “stances,” in case you haven’t noticed), and the mainstream media ran with the “Trump is a scary ruffian” angle, I knew he wouldn’t do it.  How did...
