Can Republicans Stop Losing Long Enough for the Left to Destroy Itself?

Have I ever mentioned how much I hate infighting among conservatives? This problem didn’t start with the #NeverTrump crowd. It’s been a problem since the 1950s, at least, and what makes it so frustrating to me is my certainty that, if conservatives could just cease quarreling, unite and maintain control of Washington for a few […]

The Long Shadow of Bushism

  Well, of course: Former 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said he thinks a Republican should challenge President Donald Trump in next year’s election, arguing the party “ought to be a given a choice.” “I think someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given a choice,” said Bush, who also served as […]

Democrats and the ‘Sailer Strategy’

  We cannot predict the future, and the 2020 election is still 18 months away. President Trump’s approval numbers appear stable — not necessarily good, but stable — however, if we believed the polls, there was never a chance Trump could have been elected to begin with. Let’s put it this way: If Rahm Emmanuel […]

Schumer and Pelosi Own the Shutdown Even as They Try to Blame Trump

Re-Learning Crap

This morning Smitty called to wish me a Happy New Year, and our conversation continued until I went off on one of my veins-bulging on my neck rants about Jonah Goldberg. See, my friend Professor Paul Gottfried cited me today: Recently American Spectator-columnist Robert Stacy McCain issued a blistering response to Jonah Goldberg’s latest efforts at refurbishing […]

The TrigglyPuff Party: How Democrats Created Insane ‘Social Justice’ Mobs

  Commenting on the irrational female rage unleashed by the Kavanaugh confirmation circus, Stephen Green remarks: “The Democrats have worked hard to lock down the Trigglypuff vote, but at what cost of even slightly more moderate voters?” But do such voters really exist? We are more than 25 years into a cycle of increasing polarization […]

Notice @AceOfSpadesHQ Has Gone Full Populist? (And More Trump-Era News)

Few things have pleased me more than watching my old buddy Ace of Spades go all-in on Trump, stopping just shy of a Pat Buchanan-type deal where it’s a nod-and-a-wink to the Jew-haters. Which is exactly the right place to stop, I hasten to add. It’s that scene in Falling Down where Michael Douglas encounters […]
