The Other McCain

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

Our Alleged President Has Spoken!

Squinting at the teleprompter: Today is a — it’s not hyperbole to suggest a very solemn moment. Today, the Supreme Court of the United States expressly took away a constitutional right from the American people that it had already recognized. (Can you tell me where to find the word “abortion” in the Constitution, Joe? Because […]

PREDICTION: MAXIMUM CRAZINESS!

Pro-abortion fanatics have been threatening violence if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. That has now happened, so we’ll see. UPDATE: As predicted, they’re completely unhinged: Today, the Republican-controlled Supreme Court has achieved the GOP’s dark and extreme goal of ripping away women’s right to make their own reproductive health decisions. — Nancy Pelosi […]

In Shocking Decision, Supreme Court Agrees With Laws of 43 States

Various liberals (e.g., Keith Olbermann) are melting down over today’s Supreme Court ruling in the Bruen case. Summarized briefly: The state law at the heart of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen required anyone who wants to carry a concealed handgun outside the home to show “proper cause” for the license. New York courts […]

Who Is Charlie Warzel and Why Do I Feel This Urge to Give Him a Brutal Fisking?

Honestly, this was a rabbit hole I never intended to go down. Like, why should I spend more than an hour scrolling through Google search results to try to assemble a biographical sketch of an obscure journalist? But today I glanced at Memeorandum and spotted this headline: Why Are the Right Such Sore Winners? Even […]

Worst Twitter ‘Hot Take’ Ever?

In the 24 hours since Politico leaked the draft of the Supreme Court majority decision which, evidently, will overturn Roe v. Wade, liberals have outdone themselves in piling up stupid “hot takes” on Twitter. None of them, however, exceeded the stupidity of Amanda Duarte’s take: The English language lacks a word for this colossal level […]

‘Alexa, What Is an Ideologue?’

This week’s Judiciary Committee hearings for Ketanji Brown Jackson were eye-opening in a lot of ways. Sen. Marsha Blackburn — whom I’ve considered a 2024 presidential contender for a long time — managed to embarrass Jackson with a very simple question: Blackburn: “Can you provide a definition for the word ‘woman’?” Jackson: “Can I provide […]

‘The Dismantling of Race-Conscious Admissions Would Deal Another Blow to Equity in Science’

Professor Reynolds linked this with the flippant dismissal, “White guy says there are too many Asians.” And perhaps that’s sufficient rebuttal, considering the actual stakes involved in the current situation (see, “Supreme Court can end racial preferences with Harvard and UNC admissions cases,” Mike Gonzalez, Fox News, Jan. 31). It is in fact the case […]

Why Do Democrats (and Rick Wilson) Want to Kill Texas Babies So Much?

In case you missed it this week, the Supreme Court refused to grant an injunction against a new so-called “heartbeat” law in Texas. The law prohibits abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detectable, basically six weeks into gestation — which is only about a month after a pregnant woman would have missed her period. Most […]
