A Simple Idea: ‘Four or More’

Yesterday, Ace of Spades jabbed Jonathan V. Last as one of “True Conservatives Conserving Conservatism at The Bulwark” — a jab richly deserved, but it filled me with a sense of sadness, because Last used to be so good, before he fell victim to Trump Derangement Syndrome. What To Expect When No One’s Expecting was, […]

NY State Police Mystified by Motive of Muslim Who Stabbed Salman Rushdie

The victim has been under an Iranian fatwa since 1989, but state police in New York don’t want to rush to conclusions: Salman Rushdie, whose novel “The Satanic Verses” drew death threats from Iran’s leader in the 1980s, was stabbed in the neck and abdomen Friday by a man who rushed the stage as the […]

Biden Was Wrong, Kirby Was Right: Albuquerque Muslim Murders Were Not — NOT — Motivated by ‘Hate’

My brother Kirby has a keen sense of probability. We were sitting outside our local convenience store having coffee on Sunday, when he started ranting about a story out of New Mexico to which I hadn’t paid attention. Four Muslim men had been murdered in the span of a few days, and President Biden (or, […]

The Mysterious Motive

A huge clue that Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) are just using the phrase “white supremacy” to exploit fear for political gain: On Sunday, Joe Biden acknowledged the Texas synagogue hostage situation, dubbing the incident an “act of terror,” but refused to “speculate” on Akram’s motives when asked about it by reporters.

LSHS Class of 1977

Of Course, Evolution Is Racist

Our friends at Breitbart are having a point-and-laugh carnival about the fact that England’s Sheffield University has made Charles Darwin the latest historical figure to be “cancelled” because, it is alleged, his theory of evolution was used to “justify white male supremacy.” While we may enjoy the fun — “Hahaha! Crazy academic radicals!” — I […]

‘Allahu Akbar’: Muslim Immigrant Decapitates French Teacher

The Religion of Peace™ strikes again: A history teacher who had shown caricatures of Islam’s Prophet Muhammed in class was on Friday decapitated and his assailant shot dead by French police as they tried to arrest him, police and prosecutors said. The attacker shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he was confronted by police, a police source […]

Trump Getting 50% of the Catholic Vote

The abortion issue is hurting Biden: Catholic voters have an opportunity in November to help elect only the second Catholic president in U.S. history in former Vice President Joseph R. Biden, but already the more devout followers are lining up behind President Trump. Gone are the days when nearly 80% of Catholic voters united to […]
