Hollywood, a Town of Jesters Who Act like Kings

 

Early in his career Jimmy Kimmel used to mock celebrities for their self-importance and presumption. Now he has become one of them. So much for his experiences on The Man Show. He has become just another entitled, weepy, egotistical entertainer lecturing middle America on animal rights, feminism, and socialized medicine. “Kimmel Chokes Up On Air Over […]

All of Obama’s Wiretappers

 

Hillary Clinton’s campaign memoir rests on an astonishingly audacious lie: that the very FBI director who made her campaign possible by improperly sparing her from an indictment doomed it. A normal pol who had mishandled classified information as egregiously as Hillary would have felt eternal gratitude to Comey. Only an entitled ingrate like Hillary would […]

Secularist Dogmas That Live Loudly Within Lefties

 

For years, the Washington establishment held up Sally Quinn, the wife of the late Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, as the society doyenne par excellence and a “serious” reporter. The Great and Good would gather at her mansion to bat around the issues of the day. Much talk of a sinister religiosity afoot in the land […]

The Alternate Nostril Breathing of Lady Macbeth

 

Hillary’s campaign memoir, What Happened, is as awful as expected, serving as yet another cracked window on her phoniness. She remains the baby-boomer feminist fraud, still pouting over alleged sexism even as she hurls herself upon various fainting couches. She writes about her defeat with the emotional intensity of a parent who lost a child […]

Dianne Feinstein and the Anti-Catholic Bigots

 

It came out, thanks to the WikiLeaks disclosures during the 2016 campaign, that Hillary Clinton’s aides were trading nasty notes about Catholics, calling them “severely backwards.” The Dems had long been the party of anti-Catholic bigotry and the exposed emails only confirmed that reputation. American bishops appointed by Pope Francis didn’t make a peep about […]

The Pope’s Pickle in Burma

 

In late August, the New York Times reported on a controversy only a pope like Francis would bother to court. Like many of his fellow Jesuits, Pope Francis exudes enthusiasm for every religion except his own. Out of this hyper-ecumenism has come a torrent of flaky tributes to what his predecessors would have called “false religions” and […]

The Sierra Club Sets Up Shop at the Vatican

 

The pope’s statements on climate change read like press releases from the Sierra Club. Even the pantheism of modern environmentalism creeps into his comments. “Listen to the cry of the Earth,” he lectured leaders this week. The pope is still miffed that Donald Trump blew off his counsel on the Paris climate accord. Trump had […]

The Media: Any Stick Will Do Against Trump

 

Turn on the TV at almost any moment and you will hear anti-Trump rantings indistinguishable from the lamest claims made during the primaries. The conversation, if one can call it that (it is more like the prosecution’s monologue at a show trial), hasn’t even moved beyond the sputtering that “Trump didn’t enter the race to […]

Elites to Trump: Stand Still While We Punch You

 

One of the media’s favorite shams is to trot out some grave-looking, slow-talking Washington mandarin like Jim Clapper to question the moral and mental “fitness” of Donald Trump to lead the country. It is impossible to watch these oh-so-pained interviews without laughing. Clapper, after all, is a confirmed perjurer whose deliberate lie to Congress about […]

The Clownish Commissars of the Culture

 

Among the self-appointed commissars of the culture, the hatred for Trump assumes the dimensions of a psychiatric disorder. But like the Soviet commissars of old, they don’t treat their own delusions. They instead rant and rant about the mental health of “dissenters,” those deplorables who refuse to conform to the dogmas of the commissars. As […]
