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 […]

An American Epidemic: Toxic Imbecility

I’m a doctor. Fine, I’m a doctor of laws not of medicine. But I can scroll Web, M.D. as well as anyone, so believe you me—forget all the other scourges ravaging our free republic, even if (nay, especially if) they are afflicting you. Those scourges are mere distractions from the root cause of our impending […]

The Left’s Collusion Delusion: Life Imitates Snark

As we bemusedly observe U.S. Representative Adam “Pathfinder” Schiff (D-Calif.), chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, continue to twist in his idiot wind—he now claims Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s general-warrant counterintelligence investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians in the 2016 campaign may not prove adequate—we should recall  that […]

Progressing America Into the Abyss

Leftists self-identify as “progressives.” Yet anyone with a scrap of sanity and a rudimentary understanding of their philosophical antecedents, as well as their injurious policy prescriptions, objectively identifies the Left not as “progressive” but as “regressive.” Their incessant, implacable lust to destroy the American Revolution’s novel birth of individual freedom and replace it with an […]

The Wall: A Stumble Not a Surrender

Zealous political supporters of all stripes and in every walk of life spend an ungodly amount of time vainly trying to convince the rest of us that their preferred politician is perfect. This delusion makes it easier for these supporters to vote for their preferred candidates and sing the praises of their favorite elected officials. […]

Beto O’Rourke Is Our Postmodern Nostradamus

It was a light snow, a slick snow, out by the road our driveway, needing shoveling, got me thinking Beto… Far too many on the Right have taken a less than guilty pleasure in mocking former Texas U.S. Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s existential angst and skewering his “on the road” blog posts. To wit: Have […]

Suffer the Children: The Regressives’ Totalitarian Imperative

If ever there was a textbook example of the Left’s totalitarian imperative, Noah Berlatsky provides it in his January 2 screed, “White kids, racism and the way privileged parenting props up an unjust system: White children are everywhere, but their whiteness is too often invisible and unspoken.” Yes, there is Berlatsky’s stale theme that everyone […]

Up the Populist!

I listened the other day to Tucker Carlson’s populist dirge on what’s ailing America. Then I perused some rejections, critiques, and commendations of it. Then I shrugged. To be charitable, it certainly wasn’t their fault. It’s the fruit of our communication revolution, wherein the head rush from new media’s immediacy renders antiquated the sober digestion […]

Humboldt County’s ‘Too White’ Women’s March

The regressive Left in Humboldt County, California, may or may not have been dreaming of a “White Christmas,” but they damn sure don’t want a “too white” Women’s March. According to the Washington Times, the organizers of that county’s third annual Women’s March, slated for January 19, canceled it for being—get this—“too white.” Per the […]

Merry Christmas—We’re All Gonna Die (Again)!

One of the less salubrious effects of the anti-social network is how everything and anything is deemed the end of the world and, logically, the end of humanity. True, to the Regressives, the end of humanity does not mean the end of the world but, rather, a reprieve from us for Goddess Gaia. But why […]

Free the Kidnapped Canadians in Communist China

Last week, we discussed the national security threat to the United States and her siblings in the family of free nations that is posed by Communist China’s Huawei technology company—specifically, in the words of Eli Lake, “that China’s largest telecom company will allow the Chinese state to monitor the electronic communications of anyone using Huawei […]

Communist China’s Huawei: ‘Déjà Vu All Over Again’

Back in the fall of 2007, I went on the U.S. House floor and locked horns with Communist China’s Huawei technology company and its American supporters in the private and public sectors. My conviction then was that the company constituted a threat to the security of the United States. I argued that the Committee on […]

The Left’s Civil Religion, Part Two: Heretics

As discussed when last we chatted, per Jean Jacques Rousseau, the regressive Left has been dragging humanity back to an allegedly pristine state of nature to escape corrupting civilization. Integral to the Left’s aims is foisting upon us soon-to-be noble savages a civil religion, the tenets of which must be believed over and above any […]

A Little Bit of Sole: Holy Relics of the Left’s Civil Religion

Writing not to espouse the Enlightenment but to attack it, French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau became the poisonous font of the intellectual cesspool that is modern “progressivism.” That Rousseau’s belief humanity must regress to its supposed uncorrupted “state of nature” forms the basis of “progressivism” is an irony lost upon the Left, largely because they […]

Speaking Democrat: A Primer

I was minding my own business while pontificating about the present political clime and prognosticating about future congressional shenanigans on America’s Voice News when, without warning, I found myself stumbling through the past, darkly: specifically, I was subjected to a video clip of one of my own speeches, circa 2008. Inexplicably, the co-hosts, Amanda Head […]

‘Fixin’ a Hole in the Ocean’: What a Divided Congress Means

As a result of the recent midterm election, next year’s Congress will be divided between a Democratic majority controlling the House and a Republican majority controlling the Senate. Naturally, the question arises whether the two chambers and President Trump can agree upon and accomplish anything. Though some observers remain optimistic about the prospects, I am […]

Adam Schiff Twists in an Idiot Wind

One of the carnival barkers of the Russiagate lie and media darling, U.S. Representative Adam “Pathfinder” Schiff (D-Calif.) is the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. In a saner age, the press would have pilloried the Pathfinder and his own party would have removed him long ago for pimping the myth […]

Halloween and the Perils of Cultural Appropriation

Cultural appropriation, the Cambridge Dictionary helpfully informs us, is “the act of taking or using things from a culture that is not your own, especially without showing that you understand or respect this culture.” This, of course, should not be a problem in America, a constitutional republic imbued with the concept of pluralism—that is, the […]

Republicans Pray for a Green Wave

Every U.S. House and Senate race is unique, as we are a constitutional republic and our legislative seats are not dependent upon a national vote. Nonetheless, in every election, one or more major issues cuts through a swath of the American electorate. With exceptions, such as the post-September 11 national security election, in the vast […]
