Jeffrey Epstein and ‘Fake Noose’

The mysterious strangulation was a staple plot device in the good old days of pulp fiction. Many a swashbuckling swordsman, two-fisted detective, or occult investigator in the “Weird Tales” era encountered, narrowly avoided, or avenged such incidents. Victims in such stories were frequently found with eyes bulging and a “frozen expression of horror,” though one

Halloween Costume Blues

That magical time of year is here, when the Left goes out of its way to be the enemy of fun. Hmmm…we’d better narrow that down. That isn’t really a seasonal thing. We refer specifically to the night of Hallowe’en, the evening before the Feast of All Souls. This masquerade event, which has grown to

Of NeverChumps and Magaphobes

Two suggested additions to our political taxonomy. We’re familiar with the “NeverTrumper.” He’s a public person on the Right whose principles are ever-so-refined. Somehow, though, in the refining process, those principles finally coalesced around blind resentment of a single individual. The NeverTrumper is a curiosity of the current moment in time. One day he’ll end

Monsters Among Us

“My name is Julie Shackleford. My family have been Monster Hunters for over a hundred years. My job is to keep the sweet little idiots who don’t believe in monsters safe.” “And I’m okay with that.” So begins the newest entry in the best-selling “Monster Hunter International” book series, another lead-slinging, bureaucrat-foiling, monster-slaying romp. Culturally,

‘Enlightenment’

What’s Your Democratic Candidate Identity?

National politics is always an adventure. And as every role-playing game hobbyist knows, to keep an adventure going, you’re going to need hordes of “NPCs.”  If you’re not familiar with the world’s nerdiest hobby, a “non-player character” is anybody the gamemaster invented to further the plot, or for the entertainment of the players.

Are We Overdoing Father’s Day?

Like most American households, mine carries on all of the old-time Father’s Day traditions. Last weekend, we put up the Father’s Day tree. We’ve bought the fireworks, inflated the outdoor decorations; and we’ve laid out the decorative “Father’s Day Village” with the electric racetrack which runs between the sporting goods and the hardware

Way of the Sixgun: An American Martial Art

With culture around us apparently in decline, it’s worth celebrating uniquely American traditions, especially growing ones. And few activities could be more American than the marksmanship sport of Old West-style shooting. The increasingly popular shooting matches of the National Congress of Old West Shooters and the Single Action Shooting Society are perhaps more

Only a Razor

The marketing geniuses at Gillette have discovered a way to pander even more to the woke Left. Gillette launched its first salvo against “toxic masculinity” earlier this year during the Superbowl with its now infamous ad encouraging a kinder, gentler (emasculated) sort of manliness. Now corporate leftism is in full throttle as the

Courageous Homesickness

Many social conservatives excel at diagnosis of our social ills, but often fail or stop short of prescription. They can tell us where we’ve gone wrong, but haven’t a practical plan for going right once more. Instead, in the words of Anthony Esolen, they “brandish popguns against the family-dissolving forces,” or seek distractions
