Conventional Wisdom: ‘Go Pound Sanders!’


“Twerkers of the world, unite!” This classic slogan was ready to back up the candidacy of Comrade Bernie Sanders for the Presidency until it was derailed by debit, debility, and debasement… Debbie for short.

Repent in Prison, Leslie Van Houten


“If the word ‘Manson’ was not attached to Leslie, she would have been out 20 years ago,” attorney Richard Pfeiffer told me about his client, convicted Manson “family” killer Leslie Van Houten, who is serving a life sentence for her role in two 1969 murders.

Rep. Hank Johnson’s Jewish Pests


When you compare Jews to termites, the implication is that what is wanting is a call to the exterminator. So, when Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson (D) compared the Jews of Judea and Samaria to termites, you would naturally think that the Anti-Defamation League would criticize his remark as somewhat more horrendous than “unhelpful.” It was […]

You poor saps. You went to bed with Bernie, and woke up with Hillary. You wanted a relationship, and all he wanted was a one-night stand. He promised you a revolution, but never used his weapons.

There Is a Term for This Behavior


Washington I have coined another neologism to go along with those I have coined over the years. For instance, Kultursmog for a political culture utterly polluted by the left’s politics, Black Cat News Story for a news story that the mainstream media hope will sink a conservative candidate, Boy Clinton for you know who, Bruno […]

Legitimizing Despots


Reforming United Nations institutions is often a fool’s errand. Yet, the Obama Administration chooses to draw no lessons from its attempt to improve the UN Human Rights Council, which just concluded its 10th anniversary session this month. Ten years ago, the Human Rights Council was formed to replace its corrupt and discredited predecessor, the Human […]

Hillary Tells It Like It Ain’t


According to the latest polling, almost seven out of ten Americans view Hillary Clinton as a liar. Twenty years ago, New York Times columnist William Safire wrote that “Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization” that Hillary “is a congenital liar.” Not much has changed. Her 60 Minutes interview last weekend […]
