Note To Self: Heed Surber

by Smitty I admit to some mild anxiety over Trump going wobbly regarding guns. Then I read Surber: President Trump is playing Democrats again. They want to make gun control an issue.

Apparent Epstein Arkanicide

A subversive, Borat-style parody of mindless lifestyle liberalism. If that’s the case, Chelsea Clinton is utterly brilliant.” Tucker is spot-on. I can also plug USNA, though. If you’re […]

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot the Tea Party?

by Smitty Conspicuously absent in Daniel McCarthy’s analysis is any Tea Party mention: Trump also realized, as Perot should have recognized a quarter-century earlier, that third-party politics was a waste of time, when the same resources could be used to take over the GOP from within. Republican voters, if not Republican elites, still wanted the […]
