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

  Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have adopted an anti-American position by insisting that nothing be done to secure the southern border against the flood of illegal aliens. Because they represent constituencies that hate Americans and love foreigners, the Democrat leaders believe that they can “win” the confrontation with President Trump over the […]

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 […]

Which is exactly the right place to stop, I hasten to add. It’s that scene in Falling Down where Michael Douglas encounters […]

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 […]
