The Lash Indirect

     I’ve written on several occasions about the Left’s power-tropism, and how it targets organizations to garner more of it. Every “formally organized” organization – i.e., one with by-laws or a charter, a hierarchy, and a procedure for becoming and remaining a member – offers a kind of power to those who can rise within …

Conquest’s Second Law In The Saddle

     You remember Robert Conquest’s Second Law of Politics, don’t you? Any organization not explicitly right-wing Will sooner or later become left-wing.      This is the consequence of a powerful dynamic: the dynamic of power-seeking. It’s a fairly simple progression, yet there are persons who fail – or refuse – to understand it: Any organization …

Running Scared Edition

     …or “running hard trying to scare you, Mr. and Mrs. America.”      These days, the principal ammunition of the Left is fear. They fire barrages of it at virtually everything in sight. We’re repeatedly and stridently told to fear: Racists; Pro-lifers; Fossil fuels; Sincere Christians; Large white families; White identity defenders; Guns (especially if …

A Walking Corpse

     This piece will be rather brutal, I fear. I have some ugly ground to cover, and it’s not easily compressed into a thousand exquisitely appropriate and entirely non-vulgar words.      Someone once posited that the way to structure an exposition is to lead off by telling your audience what you will tell them. You …

When Systematic Analysis Is No Longer Necessary

     (I chose the title because I’ve grown weary of titles that include “masks dropping.”)      When the enemy shows you his motivations in broad daylight, you no longer need to analyze about them. This is especially the case when his deeds are a perfect match to his words.      The media, in covering the …

Masks Are Dropping Everywhere

     Yes, Gentle Reader, the time has come for full disclosures. (No, not by me; I have nothing interesting to disclose, except that I was once a crazed Albanian dwarf with a harelip and a hump, but was rescued from a life of squalor by master surgeons in the employ of a Communist conspiracy that …

The Politicization Of Justice Is Now Complete

     Unless you’re more sensible than I am you’ve ceased to pay attention to the news, you’re already aware of the “Hunter Biden laptop” controversy and the way the Usurper Regime, and its Big Tech and media allies have striven to prevent any public discussion of it. The evidence on that laptop, combined with other …

The Eternal Exculpation Effort

     I am frequently bemused by the extent to which the bien-pensants will go in their determination to avert their eyes – and ours – from verifiable facts. Some of them seem sincerely to believe that their wishes can remake reality. Others, of course, are simply practicing the tactics of obfuscation and deflection that have …

The Storm Is Upon Us

     Yesterday’s piece, which I was reluctant to post, seems to have gotten a stir going. Perhaps that’s to the good. But if you liked it, you’ll purely love the following video: a speech from the most admirable man in entertainment, Jim Caviezel:      I believe we see things the same way, which comes as …

Carts And Horses, 2021 Edition

     Good morning, Gentle Reader. I’ve given much of the past day or so to thinking about this Victor Davis Hanson essay. It’s a good piece – what else would we expect from Hanson – but I think it’s missing one component to give it a full picture of our enemies: both the visible figures …

When Good Figures Trump Bad Facts

     I’m beginning to think there’s room in the media universe for a publication, notionally titled The Daily Outrage, which merely catalogues the many horrifying stories that festoon the Web. There have certainly been enough of them lately. The brutal treatment accorded the January 6 Capitol protestors, capped by the murder under color of law …

Systemic Claptrap

     [NOTE: This will be a linkless piece. Either you’ve been keeping up with the news, in particular the developments in left-wing agitprop, or you haven’t. The former group will know what I’m talking about and therefore will need no links. The latter might as well play Solitaire. — FWP]      Among the highest contributions …

“A Decent Place To Live”

     Fairly recently, a dear friend became troubled about the way his neighborhood was changing. He was reluctant to speak of it at first, because it involved the anthropological and sociological third rail of American public discourse: race. Several homes near him had recently been purchased by Negro families. After that, several more homes in …

A Little More On The “Public” “Education” System

     This development almost got past me:      The leftist National School Boards Association is begging President Joe Biden to use domestic terrorism laws to target parents who oppose anti-science mask mandates for children and the infiltration of racist curriculum in schools.      In a letter sent on Wednesday, NSBA asked the Biden administration and …

You Thought It Was Just A Gaffe, Didn’t You?

     Not only wasn’t it a gaffe, it goes all the way to the top:      So I saw this clip circulating the Twitter interwebs (I don’t think that’s a word but it’s funny to say when referencing the Internet – makes me feel like I’m 90) of Miguel Cardona, President Joe Biden’s Education Secretary, …

No Man Is So Blind As Is He Who Refuses To See

     I’m in a kind of “comedown” mood this morning. No, I didn’t get wasted yesterday; it’s a purely psychological phenomenon. You see, yesterday was “Talk Like A Pirate Day,” one of my favorite days of the year. Drives the C.S.O. nuts, but she knows it’s only one day a year. Happily, the many telemarketers …

Is That A Clarion Call I Hear?

     Well, maybe:      People are waking up to the monumental con that’s been played on us:      Those are basic facts – from the government horse’s mouth, at that. But don’t you dare try to dispute the importance of the “vaccine,” because the Left’s media minions will shortly know all about you:      The …

The Mind-Bogglings Continue

     I have learned an important lesson: Never imagine that it can’t get worse.      As a corollary, never imagine that it can’t get more absurd. There’s no limit apparent to the clownishness of American politicians. They’re beginning to make their colleagues in Italy and France look like sober-minded statesmen. Consider this bit of nonsense, …

From The “No, Really?” Dept.

     There are days I marvel at the obdurate ignorance of self-nominated “scientists.” As I was one, once, I think I can say this with authority: if it isn’t in his wheelhouse, the typical scientist will dismiss it as irrelevant at best, absurd at worst.      Mankind has developed a great variety of approaches to …

Self-Unmaskings

     Now and then, your enemy will blatantly reveal himself to you, as if daring you to do anything about it:      Noted True Conservative Rick Wilson of the Noted True Conservative North American Man-Boy Lincoln Association comes out breathing fire against Texas’ terrible terrible abortion law, trying to organize a boycott against any corporation …
