On Monday in this space, I posited a theory which is difficult to dispute; namely, that when you allow a leftist takeover of a cultural institution you will soon be struck by the proliferation of manifestly unfit, incompetent people who do violence to the credibility of that institution. Among the obvious examples of this phenomenon […]

They Stink

 

Here’s something you probably already know but may not have noticed: in any institution which has been taken over by the more egalitarian/iconoclastic/redistributionist elements of our society, which at this point generally includes nearly every one of the industries which control American culture, a very wide space is made for the inclusion of people who […]

Post-Labor Day Items Hither and Yon

 

What he said was factual, but — as in the case of much of what is factual — it created a firestorm, or a hurricane, if you prefer, of grief. On Tuesday, as the forecast tracks of Hurricane Irma predicted a bludgeoning by the storm of southern Florida by the end of the weekend, Rush […]

Porkers’ Revenge

 

Hurricane Harvey, which is finally clearing out of the half-drowned Gulf Coast, didn’t just dump some 20 trillion gallons of rain on the Houston area during its reign of terror over the past week — it’s also unleashed a torrent of inexcusable behavior from some of the typical suspects. There was the troglodyte Lynn Yaeger […]

Trump’s Irrelevant Approval Rating, and Other Various and Sundry Items

 

Earlier this week, I spoke to a local Republican women’s group, and one topic of conversation which came up is something often discussed in this space; namely, the Left’s tone-deaf insistence on cultural aggression as a form of power politics.

The Terrorists of the Left

 

At Whitehouse.org, there’s a petition with over 110,000 names demanding that the federal government declare Antifa to be a terrorist organization. That’s not a terrible idea, of course; if you’ve followed the antics of Antifa and the rioting and violence they’ve involved themselves in, you might well think of the current definition of domestic terrorism […]

After all, at her advanced age and with the definitive stink of having lost a […]

Various & Sundry Things This Side of John Podesta and Other Crawfish

 

I offer the following bloviations and utterances in lieu of a coherent column, seeing as though very little of our national affairs is transpiring in any coherent fashion… There is a concerted effort on the part of the cultural Marxist crowd to insure everybody’s morale is degraded to the point where we’re all at each […]

Where The Scandals Really Are

 

From a press release that hit on Thursday… House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Judiciary Committee Republicans today sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein calling for the appointment of a second special counsel to investigate unaddressed matters, some connected to the 2016 election and others, […]

What’s Wrong With These People?

 

Here’s a question: How long have Republicans been running for federal office on repealing Obamacare, in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s terminology, “Root and branch”? Answer: since 2010. Outside of the 2012 election, which was a clear outlier influenced by a number of factors which had nothing to do with healthcare policy, the 2010-2016 period […]
