Promises, Promises and the Knowing Voter

 

The only thing likely to match this election’s negativity will be voters’ cynicism. This is already clear from both candidates’ highly negative public approval ratings and voters’ belief that neither will keep promises. The upshot of voters’ detachment from the candidates is that they may well find it is mutual, once the next president takes […]

T’s Complaint Bureau

 

Our so-called independent, so-called press is reporting that T had a bad week. If they only knew the half of it. We have no money, our polls are slipping in 39 states, and we’re locked in serial pissing matches with rinky-dink GOP officials from the last century. Sad. I drew the short straw and had […]

‘Minister, Forgive Them, For They Know Not What They Do’

 

In a shocking repudiation of their own political establishment and the European elites, 51.9 per cent of the British voting electorate decided on June 23 to sever relations with the European Union. Immigration angst, unemployment, partial surrender of sovereignty to Brussels, and overwrought rules and regulations from the Continent have been cited among the causes […]

Florida’s New Lineup Card

 

Word has doubtless reached most of you that Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio has decided to run for re-election to his Senate seat.

The importance of last week’s “Brexit” vote cannot be diminished, even by those on our side of the Atlantic who insist on seeing only its possible effects on our November presidential election. In defining the importance of Brexit, the reactions within the EU are a good place to start. Brit PM David Cameron, having staked […]

Dems’ Selective Outrage About Lenient Sentences

 

Los Angeles Assistant District Attorney Michele Hanisee was gobsmacked when California lawmakers raged against the light sentence meted out to a former Stanford student convicted of sexually assaulting a woman while she was passed out behind a campus trash bin. Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky sentenced Brock Turner, 20, to six months in jail — […]

Brexit Democracy

 

And now for a few more words about the Brexit. First, the media are roaring about Britain leaving the EU as if it were a coup by a group of thieves who broke into Westminster at 2 in the morning and stole the UK. They’re talking about it as if it were a crime of […]

The Floor-Sitters

 

Let’s not let the events of the last two weeks go by without putting them in proper context. A second-generation immigrant from Afghanistan whose father was an open sympathizer with the Taliban, a practicing Muslim from a sharia-preaching mosque that had already produced one jihadist suicide bomber, a man who had been on the nation’s […]

Falsifying the Public Record Because It Offends Islam

 

Next to the propagation of the big lie, one of the most elementary and common devices in manufacturing propaganda is the notion that the truth is something you are not being told. From conspiracy theorists to those selling patent medicine on the Internet, everyone who whispers the words “secret” and “mystery” is using this device. […]

Ignoring the Real Scandal at the University of Texas

 

The Supreme Court upheld affirmative action at the University of Texas in a 4-3 decision Thursday by openly ignoring the facts of the case. In his opinion for the majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy dismissed a bombshell report on admissions corruption at UT as mere “extrarecord materials” which “the Court properly declines to consider.” The excuse […]
