The Other McCain

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

The Shame of Adam Kinzinger

Last week, Tucker Carlson bid a mocking farewell to Illinois Rep. Adam Kinzinger who, like Liz Cheney and many others, wrecked his career by succumbing to Trump Derangement Syndrome. As much as I enjoyed Carlson’s mockery — and as much as Kinzinger deserved to be mocked as a “male menopause” sufferer — it does not […]

Ted Cruz Schools ‘The View’

Your reminder that Ted Cruz was a national debating champ, and got degrees from Princeton University and Harvard Law School: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) called out The View on Monday for alleged hypocrisy, claiming the hosts don’t pressure Democratic election deniers to explain themselves while routinely doing so to Republicans. He cited 2016 Democratic presidential […]

What Radicalized Ace of Spades? (And Notes on the History of ‘Browderism’)

We were in the car today and my brother Kirby was ranting about Putin and the war in Ukraine, but my mind was a million miles away, as I scrolled through an item at Ace of Spades HQ. Kirby kept ranting, and after a while, I interjected my thoughts, which involved the earliest dawn of […]

Who Hates Republican Voters Worse, Allahpundit or Liz Cheney?

Tuesday, I said that Liz Cheney might lose by a 30-point margin, which was wrong — it was 38 points! She lost more than 2-to-1 and didn’t even get 30% of the vote in Wyoming’s Republican primary. Her contempt for the electorate — her fathomless hatred for Republican voters — was expressed quite clearly in […]

John McCain Was … Right?

Everybody who knows me knows I was not a fan of the distant relative I called “Crazy Cousin John.” The whole point of naming this blog “The Other McCain” was to ensure nobody confused me with the Arizona senator, whose advocacy of amnesty for illegal aliens I abhorred. So it was interesting to see my […]

The Media’s Squirrel Patrol

For the past two days, the liberal media have been acting as if Ted Cruz’s vacation to Cancun was the biggest news story of the week. As Scott McKay points out, this is a “squirrel” distraction, intended to draw the public’s attention away from the COVID-19 scandal around Andrew Cuomo and other news they don’t […]

Get Up And Fight

— compiled by Wombat-socho Silicon Valley delenda est. I’m not quite to Ace levels of rage yet, but I’m becoming increasingly pissed off at the defeatist moaners who think the Democrats have pulled off their October Revolution and it’s all over. “The Uniparty has won,” they whine. “There’s nothing we can do.” Yes, we should […]

The Lincoln Project Implodes

Once the “useful idiots” of #NeverTrump were no longer useful to their Establishment benefactors — once Trump was vanquished, and the rationale of #NeverTrump was over — suddenly the “open secret” of John Weaver’s predatory homosexual behavior became newsworthy. Coincidence? I don’t think so. Jan. 10: Far Be It From Me to Repeat Salacious Gossip […]
