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 of intermittent […]

The Left’s Industrial Counter-Revolutionaries

George Santayana famously said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” He should have added that the ahistorical are also immune to irony, as in the case of the Left calling itself “progressive.” In the continuing quest to note that the Left is not progressive but, in fact, regressive, let us […]

The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team: “Should I Stay or Should I Go?”

On this year’s Fourth of July vacation—a holiday my family still celebrates (call us old fashioned)—my wife and I were walking along a Grand Haven, Michigan street when we overheard how, in the World Cup semifinals, Britain had just tied the U.S. women’s soccer team at 2-2. Unable to watch the remainder of the game, […]

Eugenics Returns

The horrific recrudescence of European eugenicists marches on like a storm trooper’s hob-nailed boot to crush the inherent beauty and dignity of human life upon the drab gray, pagan altar of their globalist ideology. Defined as the “the practice or advocacy of controlled selective breeding of human populations (as by sterilization) [or by abortion] to […]

Kentucky Fried Bureaucrats: ‘Take Them to Kansas City!’

Once more, life imitates art. And when politics is involved, the genre is usually comedy. This week’s aped art was legendary producer Samuel L. Bronkowitz’s cinematic masterpiece, “Kentucky Fried Movie.” In one unsettling scene of human cruelty, two henchmen drag a captured CIA agent in front of the villain, Dr. Klahn. Defiant, the CIA agent […]

Culture War: The Show Must Go On

ne of the late Andrew Breitbart’s most enduring observations is that “politics is downstream from culture.” In a rare display of ideological agreement, both Right and Left concur with Breitbart. The difference is how the culture war’s two enemy combatants act upon his insight: The Left does and the Right doesn’t. In cahoots with the […]

Rats! We Had Better Luck Against the Brits…

The scene is an iconic image of America’s founding: On October 19, 1781, at Yorktown, Virginia, as the French fleet blockading the harbor looked on, the British army under Lieutenant General Charles Cornwallis, who cravenly refused to attend, surrendered to the combined continental and French troops led by the Comte de Rochambeau with the aid […]

Trump Shuts China’s ‘Backdoor’ to Cyber Spying

President Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order in a prescient move to defend America’s national security against Chinese cyber espionage. Invoking his powers under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, the president gave the Commerce Department 150 days to devise methods of implementing new rules for American companies that wish to trade with “foreign […]

Does President Trump Want to Be Impeached?

The aphorism is as logical and demonstrable, as can be demonstrated by current events: “The more illogical the proposition, the more political the proposition.” Fortuitously, too, current events have conspired to reveal this aphorism intersecting with the political truism that “the Left accuses its victims of that which the Left is doing.” Per CNN, U.S. […]

The Climate Cult’s Missal

The sanctimonious Climate Cult never ceases to amaze and amuse in its incessant, condescending appeals to enlighten—by any means necessary—we recalcitrant heretics who refuse to cede our liberty to the state upon the pretext of their politicized science. Now, they’re going to nuke us with a missal. To wit, this May 1 tract by Hannah […]

Early Days for the Spygate Scandal

In 1961, the British Parliament’s Tory majority of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan was wracked and wrecked by the Profumo Affair, eponymously named for Sir John Profumo, the Secretary for War. In her book, City of Sin: London and Its Vices, Catharine Arnold provides a pithy recap of the salacious scandal, which involved “call girls” Christine […]

End Times for the Collusion Cult?

Long have we dwelt upon how many of those who eschew revealed religion, instead have turned and clung to the left-wing’s regressive “civil religion.” Among these secular believers, one of the fastest growing sects was the Russian Collusion Cult. As with the overarching intellectual fraud, Collusion Cult members derived their benighted world view and unwarranted […]

Democrats’ Crisis: They’ve Run out of Cool Free Sh*t!

This week the high tide of leftist idiocy outdid itself, transforming into a tsunami of toxic imbecility, inundating the public square with the stinking flotsam of their lunacy, mendacity, and bigotry. Rudderless, the party of redistribution now finds itself adrift in a crisis of their own making, one that could lead an electoral deluge in […]

Michael Cohen’s Lying Circus: A Dispassionate Review

Tragically, notwithstanding recent efforts at raising public awareness of the scourge of toxic imbecility, the spread of this debilitating disease has intensified, especially in the minds of those whose symptoms are manifested in Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS). Nowhere is this acceleration of the outbreak on clearer display than in the Left’s rave reviews for the […]
