The Rotting Big Apple

 

As New York City’s descent into pre-Giuliani disorder and squalor continues, Mayor Bill de Blasio busies himself with left-wing causes beyond satire. This week he unveiled a “cultural plan,” which consists largely of threatening museums with budgetary cuts unless they bump up their “diversity” hires. The Big Apple’s museums are too “elitist,” said de Blasio. […]

Run, Kamala, Run

 

Finding a pol as (or more) obnoxious than Barbara Boxer is no easy feat, but Golden State voters managed to perform it by selecting Kamala Harris as her replacement. Harris is a left-wing dingbat of singular rudeness. A deluded Boxer thought of herself as kittenish and charming; Harris conceives of herself as more of a […]

The Media’s Endless Anti-Trump Show Trial

 

It is a measure of the anti-Trump media’s stupidity and malpractice that the phrase “breaking news” now elicits eye rolls. The media’s “breaking news” about Trump is rarely breaking or news. It is usually recycled and old — some stale piece of information, relating to a practice both parties long ago adopted, that is sensationalized and […]

The Roots of the Pope’s Anti-Americanism

 

The other day I ran into a high-ranking churchman in New York City and we chatted about the state of the Church. Though appointed by Pope Francis, he shared some of my distaste for this pontificate. He found the pope’s “vindictive” side disappointing and dislikes the pope’s lack of spiritual seriousness. The latter is evident […]

Trump’s Defense of Universal Truths in Poland

 

Had Donald Trump given the Gettysburg Address, liberals would have called it insultingly brief. No matter how eloquently and sensibly he speaks, they stand ready to snipe at him. No sooner had he finished his stellar remarks in Poland than they grabbed for their wet blankets. Yes, he criticized Russia; yes, he defended NATO. But […]

The Liberal Jesuit Captivity of the Papacy

 

Jorge Bergoglio is the first Jesuit to become pope and may end up the last Jesuit to be pope, in light of the havoc that he is wreaking upon the Church. But who knows? After all, he is stacking the college of cardinals with liberal appointees in the hope that they will elect a modernist […]

Trump and Morning Joke

 

Perhaps there is no better window on the awfulness of the self-appointed New York-to-DC ruling class than MSNBC’s Morning Joe. The show revolves around a collection of chattering-class bores who devote the start of their day to seconding each other’s shallow and smug criticisms of Trump. The women make faces; the men roll their eyes. Co-host […]

The Communist Cardinals of Pope Francis

 

In 1953, Manning Johnson, a former propaganda director for the Communist Party in America, testified to the U.S. Congress that Marxists had infiltrated Catholic seminaries. “In the earliest stages it was determined that with only small forces available it would be necessary to concentrate Communist agents in the seminaries and divinity schools,” he said. “The […]

Somebody, Anybody, Run Against Bill de Blasio

 

Bill de Blasio is a left-wing buffoon of dizzying idiocy. The dimbulb mayor of New York City is so bad that he makes David Dinkins look Churchillian. And yet it appears that de Blasio is sailing towards re-election in November. The question — “Is that jackass really going to win re-election?” — is asked often […]

The Left’s Flirtation With Trumpicide

 

Liberalism, philosophically speaking, is proudly unprincipled, insofar as it recognizes no divine law prior to man’s will. The arrogant humanism underpinning liberalism, combined with fallen human nature, makes the temptation to violence irresistible, especially in times of political exile. When safely ensconced in positions of power, liberals demand “civility” and the like (remember the ludicrous […]
