Trump Is Slaughtering the Beltway’s Sacred Cows

 

Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear: Trump in the White House is meant to cast a negative light on Donald Trump’s presidency. Yet from the bits of information that have been released in the press thus far, there is much that shows Trump less as an über-villain, and more as a responsible steward of the national interest. […]

Does Mike Pence Have It Out for Trump?

 

According to Vox (please note that I begrudgingly cite it as a reliable source), the bookies in Las Vegas have made a list of their top five bets on who just might be behind the ridiculous New York Times op-ed piece by an “anonymous senior Trump Administration official.” At the top of their list is none other than Vice […]

What Do Serial Killers and the Left Have in Common?

 

Watching the incessant virtue signaling by the Democrats about protecting the Constitution during the opening of the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearing reminded me of the time Hannibal Lecter teamed up with the FBI agent who arrested him to stop another serial killer. In other words, it wasn’t sincere. You see, the same Democratic […]

Doing America’s Work: Labor Day Thoughts on Corporate Nationalism

 

“Who is John Galt?” is a question that resonates throughout the ideological echo chamber of the Right. It’s a sort of mantra that dominates the underlying economic assumptions of everyone from Libertarian activists, like the Koch Brothers, to the corporate conservatives, like Mitt Romney. It’s as pervasive a motto on the Right as Senator Elizabeth […]

Ron DeSantis, Ditzes, and Dogwhistles

 

The other day I told my two toddlers to “quit monkeying around!” According to MSNBC, that makes me a racist because that’s precisely what they said about Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate, Ron DeSantis, when he told Fox News that Florida voters shouldn’t “monkey up” the state by electing a democratic socialist, the first African-American gubernatorial […]

Marxism Runs Amuck in South Africa

 

Plaas Moorde, that is Afrikaans (the language of South Africa) for “farm murders.” The hills of Polokwane, in South Africa’s Limpopo Province, are dotted with over 2,000 makeshift white crosses. A cross is added for every South African farmer who is murdered. This has occurred since the memorial’s founding in 1994. Thus far, 75 crosses have […]

The Suicide of the Democratic Party

 

Leftist radical David Hogg generated some controversy when he complained to the press that “Older Democrats just won’t move the f—k off the plate and let [the young people] take control [of the DNC].” With that outburst, Hogg completed the cultural revolution begun in the 1960s — and best summed up by the domestic terrorist, Bill […]

Retirees Shouldn’t Get Security Clearances

 

Between the Mexican-American War and the start of the Civil War, men like Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman — two of the greatest military leaders in American history — found themselves living rather dull civilian lives. As tensions heated up between the Union and the Confederacy, both Grant and Sherman were initially on […]

Let’s Hope Trump Didn’t Record Anyone

 

Democrats have a pernicious pattern for handling effective Republican presidents. First, they claim that the president is unfit for office either because he’s too stupid or insane (they did this with Dwight Eisenhower, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, and George W. Bush). Then, they argue that the Republican in the White House is evil and corrupt […]

Space Warfare Is Here

 

The White House has announced its intention to create a space force. Until now, a series of treaties have prevented the weaponization of space. Yet, even with things like the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 and other fantastical agreements, space has been militarized almost from the start. The only reason no space war occurred during […]
