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

‘That Wretched Woman’

This was certainly not the only ghoulish hate expressed by the Left after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, but is perhaps the most interesting. What “genocide” was Uju Anya blaming on Her Majesty? This was the Nigerian Civil War of 1967-70, when the southwestern part of the country sought to secede as “Biafra.” The […]

R.I.P., Queen Elizabeth II

When she was just a 14-year-old girl, and England stood alone against Hitler’s terrifying Nazi war machine, Elizabeth inspired her nation by going on the BBC to broadcast a message full of hope and courage: “We are trying to do all we can to help our gallant sailors, soldiers, and airmen, and we are trying, […]

Academic Stasi Protecting Students From White Supremacist Menace of (Checks Notes) 18th-Century Scottish Philosopher

“Don’t worry,” they told us, “it’s just a few Confederate statues.” Next thing you know, the woke mob has come for . . . David Hume? The University of Edinburgh has seen its donations slump by almost £2 million after it “cancelled” the philosopher David Hume over his slavery links. The institution said that 24 […]

The Duke and Duchess of Trash

Sometimes the algorithm turns up a headline that, while utterly silly, nevertheless gets your mind completely off-track: One of Meghan Markle’s most iconic looks will be displayed in a British fashion museum. The Fashion Museum announced Tuesday that the black silk Giorgio Armani dress that the Duchess of Sussex wore for her bombshell interview with […]

They recovered a […]

Aspiring Rapper Update

Readers may have forgotten Timothy Nathaniel Leeks, but last November, the 22-year-old was arrested in the fatal shooting of rapper Dayvon Bennett, a/k/a “King Von,” outside an Atlanta hookah bar. It’s been two months since our last Aspiring Rapper Update, and I know that many of our readership may have been disappointed in the dearth […]

England Soccer: ‘Get Woke, Go Broke’?

This is a subject that I am loath to raise because (a) I don’t know a lot about contemporary England, (b) I don’t understand soccer strategy, and (c) this involves accusations of RAAAAACISM! England lost the European championship final to Italy in an overtime “shootout,” a sort of sudden-death situation where the teams, having finished […]

What the Princess Said

“We are trying to do all we can to help our gallant sailors, soldiers, and airmen, and we are trying, too, to bear our own share of the danger and sadness of war. We know, every one of us, that in the end all will be well. For God will care for us, and bring […]
