Petri-Dish Leftists

As most of my Generation X cohorts were too young at the time to process fully the abysmal political reasons why the 1970s sucked, network television did its part to ensure we kids realized some of the pop-cultural reasons. I enter into evidence Exhibit 3,471,983: ABC’s 1976 “made-for-television” movie, “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble.” “Based

Dems’ Impeachment Inquiry Announces New Hire

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has vowed to investigate the impeachment of the patently guilty of something President Donald J. Trump “in a way that brings people together, that is healing rather than dividing. True to her word, the Speaker and House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chair, U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.),

Clear-Eyed Engagement: America’s New China Policy  

In the inaugural Frederic V. Malek Memorial Lecture at the Wilson Center, Vice President Mike Pence boiled down President Trump’s necessary revolution in U.S.-China relations to three words: “clear-eyed engagement.” In this welcome address, Pence outlined a holistic policy based upon a realistic assessment of the nature and deeds of the Chinese regime. He declared

Twitching and Grunting in the Great White North

As a youngster in the 1970s, on Labor Day weekends my family would vacation in Ipperwash, Ontario, on the shore of Lake Huron. For much of that time, American and Canadian relations were often strained, especially over foreign policy, and these governmental tensions could filter down to the respective citizenries. Once, on the way to

Beto O’Rourke: A Clockwork Leftist

In an 1819 landmark Supreme Court ruling, McCulloch v. Maryland, Chief Justice John Marshall famously opined: “The power to tax involves the power to destroy." What the esteemed Chief Justice couldn’t have foreseen was how the regressives would seek to use the power to tax to destroy revealed religions and subordinate them to the Left’s

Moral Equivalence in the ‘Unilateral’ Impeachment Inquiry

The Left’s same lame game is afoot—anile, redundant, and destined for failure. In his incisive legal analysis, Andrew McCarthy notes how the absence of a formal vote to commence the impeachment inquiry and the failure (at present) to issue subpoenas would invoke due process safeguards for the president, his administration, and other potential witnesses and/or

The Climate Cult’s ‘New Theology’ Is a Poisonous Proposition

Gertrude Stein mused, “a rose is a rose is a rose . . . ” Unless, of course, it is your Grand Inquisitor. In the latest evidence the Left is regressing into a permanent vegetative state, the Union Theological Seminary (UTS) in New York City hosted “a beautiful ritual” to help combat climate change: “Today in

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
