The Left Lets the Rat Out of the Bag

One of the more pathetic failings of the Left is to deny not only the consequences of its policies and tactics, but to deny their policies and tactics altogether. Then one of their ranks lets the rat out of the bag. Two recent incidents belie the Left’s disingenuous agenda: First, former U.S. Representative Beto O'Rourke

Why You Can’t Say ‘Eat Me!’ to a Leftist Anymore

Some consider strenuous objections to the climate cult and its aims to be half-baked. Though peppered with invective, we critics who know the Left and who are embroiled in this issue have warned that the climate cult will ban plastic straws today and you tomorrow. Bluntly, these postmodern Malthusians insanely hold that the greatest threat

‘Prog-Whistles’ and Safe Spaces

The Left controls the three major platforms for messaging the American people—the arts; academia; and the old, new and social media. Yet, America remains a generally center-right country—and certainly has not become the "fundamentally transformed" backwater socialist collective President Obama once promised. Oh, sure, he and his leftist minions never explicitly called for

Pop Gun 2: ‘Resistance’ Hollywood Kowtows to China

Hollywood, the cultural epicenter of the “resistance” to the faux totalitarianism attributed to President Trump, has a vastly different approach to the real totalitarianism of Communist China: capitulation and self-censorship. As noted by Mark MacKinnon, the senior international correspondent for The Globe and Mail, the sequel to 1986’s “Top Gun”—which, after 33 years
