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 […]

Another Pointless Russia Hearing

 

On a steamy Tuesday, the Senate’s probe of Jeff Sessions served no purpose save a soporific one. The media, with its idiotic pre-hearing countdown clock, suggested that viewers could look forward to riveting testimony. The hearing was anything but. It was boring and pointless as hell. Senate drips such as Mark Warner droned on, rehashing […]

Comey Served at the Pleasure of Himself

 

Of the show trials in the Soviet Union, it was said, “Everything was true, except the facts.” One could say the same about the show trial Donald Trump is suffering at the hands of a hysterically partisan ruling class. Its frenzy over James Comey’s Senate testimony bears no relationship to reality; it is simply a […]

Straining at the Tweet and Swallowing the Terrorism

 

Judging by press coverage, one would think the most pressing problem facing Western civilization is not terrorism but tweeting. At yesterday’s press conference, John Roberts of Fox News was given the first question and used it to lecture Trump on the counterproductivity of tweets. Other journalists circled back to this issue anxiously, treating it as […]

Pope Francis Aide Trashes Trump

 

One of Pope Francis’s close friends, Argentine Bishop Marcelo Sorondo, can always be counted on to blurt out what is whispered within the halls of the Vatican. He didn’t disappoint yesterday, allowing himself a series of demagogic remarks at Trump’s expense in anticipation of a U.S. pull-out from the Paris climate accord. “I don’t know […]

Obamagate’s Origin in John Brennan

 

In recent days, articles identifying John Brennan as the father of Obamagate have appeared. Their headlines include: “Obama loyalist Brennan drove FBI to begin investigating Trump associates last summer” and “Brennan Info Drove FBI To Launch Probe of Trump Associates.” These articles, while welcome, should come as no surprise to readers of TAS. In March, […]

Trump Should Ignore Pope’s Prattle About Paris Deal

 

The Vatican under the frenetic political activism of Pope Francis has become a nest of extreme environmentalists. Operating almost like an annex of Greenpeace and the Sierra Club, Francis’s Vatican has held a series of conferences and events that promote the rawest and most aggressive theories of “climate change.” As the ultra-left Nation has pointed out, even […]

How Pope Francis Is Undercutting Donald Trump

 

Just days before last year’s presidential election, Pope Francis denounced politicians who speak about erecting “walls,” prompting Slate and other publications to run such headlines as, “It Sure Sounds Like Pope Francis Doesn’t Think Americans Should Vote For Trump.” One couldn’t blame the headline writers. After all, Pope Francis had made no similarly voluble criticism […]

The Pope’s Marxist Head of the Jesuits

 

Understanding the adage that personnel is policy, Pope Francis has been planting Marxists throughout the Church, including at the top of the troubled religious order to which he belongs. In 2016, the Jesuits, with the blessing of Pope Francis, installed as its general superior a Venezuelan, Fr. Arturo Sosa Abascal, whose communist convictions have long […]
