Disney Not Gay Enough Yet? New Plan: Get (More) Woke, Go (More) Broke

When it was announced that Disney CEO Bob Chapek had been ousted in favor of a return to former CEO Bob Iger, a lot of conservatives started high-fiving on Twitter, erroneously assuming that this must signal some kind of admission by Disney that their left-wing cultural war agenda had failed as a business model.

Will the Media Ever Admit That Christine Blasey Ford Slandered Brett Kavanaugh?

Orange Man (Still) Bad: Anti-Trump Witch Hunt Must Continue, Says Garland

“Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime,” said Stalin’s notorious secret police chief Lavrentiy Beria, summarizing the method by which totalitarianism destroys its chosen enemies. Specious accusations of “Trotskyism” were enough to justify arrest and prosecution and, as Beria said, the NKVD could always discover (or rather, invent) “crimes” used to justify […]
