Make the World More Beautiful

        This afternoon was beautiful. The fall colors are so brilliant now, and I’m sorry that the pictures above (click to enlarge) don’t do justice to the intensity of the yellow-orange of the hickory trees and the nearly fluorescent red and yellow of the maples. On Facebook, I suggested: People wondering what […]

Good-Bye, Ms. Abrams: Georgia Democrat Calls for Banning AR-15 Rifles

  Well, if this doesn’t guarantee her defeat, I don’t know what will: In an interview on “The View” Tuesday morning, Stacey Abrams, the Democratic candidate for Georgia governor, called for AR-15 rifles to be banned. When asked if she supports banning AR-15-style rifles, Abrams said civilians should be banned from using them. “I do […]

‘Hate Speech,’ CNN and George Soros

Republican campaign ad in Minnesota. Yesterday, I switched my office TV to CNN, a psychological hazard I try to undertake at least once a week. Yes, it’s a mental-health risk to immerse myself into that bizarre alternative universe — a land where Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon are considered objective journalists — but if I […]

Why Do We Know Almost Nothing About Pittsburgh Gunman Robert Bowers?

  There has been a remarkable failure of journalism in the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting. The gunman, 46-year-old Robert Bowers, remains a cipher. Except for the fact that he posted anti-Semitic rants on the Internet, worked as a truck driver and lived alone in an apartment, we know nothing about Bowers. Who are his parents? Does […]

Michael Moore Releases Sayoc Video, Ruins It With Idiotic Anti-Trump Sermon

Now that Sayoc has been arrested for mailing more than a dozen pipe bombs to Trump’s enemies, this video is very interesting. However, Moore […]

Brazil: ‘Far-Right’ Bolsonaro Wins

  One of the things I despise most about the media’s liberal bias is the dishonest way they make it seem as if there is no such thing as the Left in politics, so that an extremist like Barack Obama — a companion of radical terrorist Bill Ayers, and a congregant at Jeremiah Wright’s anti-white, […]

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: Wombat Hospitalized, Could Use Your Help

  CLICK HERE TO CONTRIBUTE! The first time I met Wombat — in 2010, as I recall — I was struck by the enormous size of the man. It’s like meeting an NFL lineman in real life. You see them on TV and know they are unusually large human beings, but actually being in their […]

Crazy People Are Dangerous: Cornell Student Takes LSD, Does Bad Things

  Saano Murembya of Okemos, Michigan, was a freshman at elite Cornell University (annual cost of attendance, $70,004 including room and board) when he reportedly took a dose of LSD last Sunday, Oct. 21. The effects of LSD are unpredictable, particularly when you’re talking about street drugs, where the contents and dosage levels are uncertain: […]
