Intellectual Morons: Professor Evil Calls for the End of Humanity

 

New research on Mensa members claims demonstrably higher rates of mental illness among people with high IQs. One finds anecdotal support for the statistical evidence in a new article by a South African philosopher calling for the elimination of mankind. Philosopher David Benatar argues in an article at Aeon called “Kids? Just Say No” that […]

I’m Harvey Weinstein, and I’m Here to Help You

 

“Hey, baby, wanna make a movie?” As pickup lines go, it’s as clichéd as it is creepy — less blunt than Al Czervik’s “Wanna make $14 the hard way?” but not quite as nuanced as Ron Burgundy’s “I don’t know how to put this, but I’m kind of a big deal” — let alone S. […]

Why?

 

A sixtysomething millionaire murdered 58 people at a concert across the street from the Mandalay Bay this week. When Stephen Paddock partook in his sole act of mercy by killing his 59th person, the search for the perpetrator became a search for answers. When we look for the reason in unreason we often look unreasonable. […]

Spies Like Us

 

Whittaker Chambers stuffed purloined papers in a pumpkin. Reality Winner shoved them in her pantyhose. Spies lack the style they once exuded. The National Security Agency (NSA) contractor initially insisted that she had set fire to a copy of an intelligence report on Russian hacking of U.S. voter databases after printing the document. When pressed […]

Obama’s Watergate

 

Vladimir Putin did not hack the election. Barack Obama did. Donald Trump said earlier this year that the Obama Administration wiretapped his campaign. “Like I’d want to hear more from that fool?” President Obama scoffed. But CNN reported on Monday, “US investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort under secret court orders before and […]

Sore Loser Hillary Broke Campaign Promise Without Winning

 

Hillary Clinton described last fall’s presidential election as a “theft” in an interview with Anderson Cooper. “I think it needs to be eliminated,” Clinton said of the Electoral College on CNN. “I’d like to see us move beyond it, yes.” Like Miss Havisham wearing that wedding dress or Uncle Rico talking about throwing a football […]

9/11 Terrorists Overthrew Naive Notions of Proletarian Revolutionaries

 

The terrorists that killed 2,997 people 16 years ago Monday presented the 21st century with a radically different revolutionary than the ones that stormed our imaginations in the 19th and 20th centuries. They didn’t overthrow the world order. They did overthrow our conception of where on the economic strata revolutionaries come from. The 9/11 terrorists […]

After the Hurricane, the Political Storm

 

On his fourth and final voyage to the New World, an effectively stranded Christopher Columbus informed unhelpful natives that unless they provided aid his God, angry with their inhospitality, planned to make the moon “inflamed with wrath” and disappear it from the heavens. When the lunar eclipse occurred just as the navigator’s charts predicted, the […]

NYC Honors Stalin Prize Winner and Soviet Spy But Wants Columbus Gone?

 

Who’s buried in Grant’s tomb? Bill de Blasio doesn’t know the correct answer to Groucho Marx’s question, but whoever it is he’s surely a no-good racist worthy of disinterment and exile to Hart Island’s potter’s field. Such is the fanatical mentality underlying the push to imitate the Taliban, the Vandals, and other historical villains who […]

Gray Lives Matter

 

For looting gold-plated shingles off the Temple of Jupiter Optimus Maximus during their sack of Rome in 455, the Vandals helplessly watched history expropriate their name into a label for mindless despoilers of property. When does history turn “Democrat” into some euphemism for chutzpah for destroying monuments to Democrats all the while blaming Republicans for […]
