The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Good-Bye, #NeverTrump!

  Honestly, I’ve found it easy to ignore the #NeverTrump Republican crybabies most days, but reading their epitaph was enjoyable: The Never Trump intellectual crowd has no momentum and no popular following these days. Consider the trajectory of their would-be leader [Bill] Kristol, who appears to be indulging in a personal fantasy by putting himself forward as a candidate, […]

The Rhetoric of ‘Social Justice’

Feminist students at the University of Southern California. When did “oppression” become a synonym for failure or unhappiness? How did “privilege” become a synonym for success? And why do so many people now conflate criticism or disagreement with “hate”? During the past five years — since President Obama was re-elected in 2012, basically — the […]

#TheMemo: Worse Than Watergate?

Chris Buskirk writes at American Greatness: The FISA Abuse Memo is out and now we know why the Democrats were desperate to keep its contents hidden from the public: it confirms the worst fears not just of President Trump’s supporters but of everyone concerned about the abuse of police power, government corruption, and the sanctity of our […]

Where Did Hillary Go Wrong?

“But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” — Daniel 12:4 (KJV) One of the basic proofs of the Bible’s truth is the accuracy of prophecy. As every Christian knows, Jesus was the […]

BANNON OUT AT WHITE HOUSE

  “Dance with the one that brung ya,” is always good advice in politics. Elected officials must represent the people who elected them, and the guy whose mission it was to speak for those people inside the Trump White House was Steve Bannon. It was Bannon’s self-chosen task to fight what he called “the Deep […]

Look for the ‘Hate’ Label (or, Why Everybody’s a ‘Far-Right’ Extremist Now)

  Who is Kevin Panetta? He is the writer behind a comic book called Zodiac Starforce, which looks a lot like a ripoff of Sailor Moon, but that’s irrelevant to his role as a volunteer with the Thought Police. Panetta got more than 45,000 retweets and more than 80,000 likes for his assertion that disagreeing […]

Language Alert: “Conservative Opposition To #Obamacare Repeal”

by Smitty Emphasis mine: Privately, senior Republican lawmakers and staff are more blunt. They say they have no problem steamrolling conservatives by daring them to vote against an Obamacare repeal that their constituents have demanded for years. Sen. Rand Paul walks to a room on Capitol Hill in Washington on March 2, where he charges […]
