Dickie Durbin Does DACA

 

The last column in this space addressed the fact that, in the event that Amazon Post story, citing anonymous second-hand sources to allege that President Trump referred to a few Third World nations from which a sizable proportion of our illegal immigrants come as “s***hole countries” in a closed-door meeting with several members of Congress, […]

Importing The S***hole

 

Thursday saw a media firestorm erupt over a Washington Post report that amid a White House meeting with several members of Congress working on a compromise having to do with the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, President Trump asked why America should have to take in so many immigrants from “s***hole […]

The Anti-American Keith Ellison, and Other Items Hither and Yon

 

Today’s Democrats are a party dedicated to… what, exactly? It’s a difficult question to answer, because they don’t seem to be all that good at letting the American people know what they’re for. Certainly we know what they’re against — Donald Trump and the private sector; that’s obvious. If there was any doubt about this […]

The Transient Luck of John Bel Edwards

 

A week ago, Louisiana pollster Bernie Pinsonat released a survey that all but ruined Christmas for Louisiana’s Republicans, and particularly those considering a run at the state’s highest political office when it next comes up for election in 2019. Namely, that the state’s current governor John Bel Edwards, a Democrat in a deeply red state, […]

128 Lumps of Coal

 

Nikki Haley, in case you weren’t aware, is a superstar. She proved it this week while most of the rest of the diplomats at the United Nations proved themselves to be, well, something else. Haley, our UN Ambassador, was tasked with handling a touchy issue — namely, President Trump’s decision to fulfill a campaign promise […]

The Democrats Stink of Weakness and Defeat, and Other Pre-Christmas News

 

Armageddon, she called it. That was Nancy Pelosi, the insane woman who is somehow in charge of the Democrats’ House caucus, speaking about the just-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The bill would later pass in the House, largely on the same party lines it’s passed throughout the legislative process, due to procedural necessities, Wednesday. […]

Toxic Femininity, Redux

 

Monday, your author was perusing his Facebook feed and happened upon a link being bounced around (with more than 46,000 social media shares as of Tuesday afternoon) amid guffaws and headshaking from a site called Everyday Feminism, and pursuant to this column’s occasional examination of the blatant stupidity of the anti-social Left I thought it […]

Thanks a Lot, Chauncey Gardner

 

If you’re looking for an understanding of the bone-grinding groupthink stupidity of a political elite, one effective means of doing so is to watch Being There, a 1979 movie starring Peter Sellers as a mentally retarded gardener on the estate of a wealthy Washington, DC businessman who is thrust, through a series of misunderstandings and […]

Enough: FBI and Justice Department Corruption Needs to End

 

Last week nobody knew who Peter Strzok was. He’s certainly not anonymous anymore. Very quietly this summer, Strzok was reassigned from Trump-Russia collusion probe special counsel Robert Mueller’s team after it was discovered that he’d sent anti-Trump text messages to a woman with whom he was having extramarital sexual congress (who also was a member […]

#SchiaNO

 

With some exceptions they’ve never really had much of a football team at Rutgers, even though it was at that school, the state university in New Jersey, where the first college football game was played in 1869 (for the record, Rutgers beat Princeton by a 6-4 score). In fact, in the modern history of the […]
