From The “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” Files

     Democrat politicians would like you to believe that they’re women’s best advocates and protectors. (Mind you, you mustn’t ask them Matt Walsh’s question “What is a woman?” That would upset them terribly.) They constantly prattle about “women’s rights,” as if one’s rights are in some way dependent on one’s sex. But then, we know …

Shamelessness As A Political Weapon (UPDATED)

     The key political asset of our time is the ability to tell any lie, however outrageous or absurd, with a perfectly straight face: eyes straight and flat, no lifting of either corner of the mouth, and no tightening of either nostril. Moreover, the liar must be able to maintain that solemn-as-a-judge expression through a …

It’s amazing what happens when you enforce the law

Texas shows how it’s done .It shouldn’t be a shock that when you enforce the laws and shut down the border, illegal criminals stop coming through. And we all know this, even the National Socialist Democrat Worker’s Party, who is now being stymied in their goal of flooding the country through mass illegal entry. Of …

Another Non-Surprise

     That perennial loser “Beto” O’Rourke wants the invasion of Texas to continue unbounded: Abbott is using the Texas Guard to defy a Supreme Court ruling. When Gov. Faubus did this in 1957, Eisenhower federalized the Arkansas Guard to ensure compliance with the law. Biden must follow this example of bold, decisive leadership to end …

Mask Droppings

     I’ve written this before: When the two parties are agreed on the problems but differ on the methods, the American system of government can function as intended, though not without the occasional bump in the road. However, when the parties don’t agree on the problems, or assign them radically different priorities, trouble ensues. Sometimes …

Embarrassing For The GOP

     It’s not that long ago that a revolt against then Speaker-Of-The-House Kevin McCarthy, led by Matt Gaetz, barely succeeded in ousting McCarthy from that post. The vote to expel garnered the support of the Democrat caucus, plus a paltry five Republicans’ votes. What I didn’t know at the time was that some highly prominent …

Awake

I had to get up early today for a number of reasons, and since I’m somewhat daft I decided that as long as my schedule included an early awakening, I might as well make the best of it. Last Sunday I was given a batch of sourdough starter. I made English muffins with it yesterday, …

Assuming the title of “Good Communist”

Diane Feinstein assumes ambient temperature. Do you find that to be harsh? Calling her a “Good Communist”, as in one who is no longer stealing precious oxygen from the productive members of society? Can anyone point to one thing that Feinstein did that helped improve this country? Or did she sit in the Senate voting …

He Who Says “A” And Gets Away With It

     …will inspire others to say “B,” in search of the same privileges.      Senator Robert Menendez (D, NJ) has been in ethical hot water for most of his time in public life. Perhaps, after so many close shaves, he thought himself invulnerable, but that might not prove to be the case this time around. …

Another politician learns his lesson too late

“I made a mistake; it was a big mistake, and you have to acknowledge your mistake,” Canepa confessed. “By doing this, what we’ve done is we’re letting people take thousands and thousands of dollars. And why should people be subjugated?” Canepa acknowledged that the only way to combat the problem is to hold criminals responsible …

No Courage In Politics

     Just in case you’ve spent the last five years in a coma, the federal government of these United States, currently under occupation by the Ukraine-China-Democrat combine, is doing its damnedest to persuade Us the People that to question its legitimacy is against the law. Every now and then one of its boughten allies in …

Disingenuous Or Merely Sarcastic?

     John Hinderaker, one of Web commentary’s brightest lights, penned this:      For reasons I can’t explain, the Left, including the Democratic Party, has made sex change operations on minors its signature issue. It has become a litmus test: in order to be considered progressive, one must now advocate the mutilation of children’s genitals. If …

The Shell Game Of Contemporary Politics…

     …still has a few desperate players:      It happened again on Monday. Mr. Biden appeared alongside Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to brief reporters on new efforts to force airlines to compensate passengers when a flight is canceled. As soon as his remarks ended, Mr. Biden turned and walked off, ignoring questions from reporters. This …

The Coverups Have Failed

     …and the attempts to silence those who know the truth have become supremely frenzied.      Good morning, Gentle Reader. I have a slew of things to deal with today, and must soon turn back to them, but the following three stories strike me as imperative to publicize, despite Liberty’s Torch’s modest readership: The wholesale …

From Cynicism To Sarcasm: Progress Or Regress?

     The Diogenes of history — i.e., “the one with the lamp” – was known as The Cynic, for good and sufficient reasons:      Diogenes of Sinope was a controversial figure. His father minted coins for a living, and when Diogenes took to debasement of currency, he was banished from Sinope. After being exiled, he …

Ugly Portents

     I’ve recently encountered a few harbingers of unpleasantness that have reminded me of one of life’s less pleasant rules: Preferences Cannot Be Absolutes      What do I mean by that? Only this: if you’d prefer some condition of existence, and circumstances change to render that condition unavailable, you have no alternative: you must cope. …

Following Up On “…but outrage is mandatory.”

This began as a comment to Surprise Is Optional…, about the revelations of the zero mark given baltimore students. But I feel I owe Fran a more thorough effort, to make clearer whatever worth what follows may have. I cannot imagine that anyone who is a regular at Liberty’s Torch has not read 1984 at …

Surprise Is Optional…

     …but “outrage” is mandatory:      Days after Gov. Wes Moore, D-Md., declared education a top priority for his tenure, Baltimore reported that zero students in 23 different public schools are proficient in math. Also, 93% of third through eighth graders tested below grade level in the same subject.      Baltimore residents responded by blasting …

Cognitive Dissonance Chronicles

     The use of deliberate contradiction and confusion to paralyze the populace is a classic tactic of totalitarian regimes. It’s also used by aspiring tyrants:      The recent controversy over gas stoves is a classic example of how the left works.      They put the idea out there that they wanted to get rid of …

When A Man Shows You Who He Is

     …believe him:      Hakeem Jeffries is the Minority Leader for the Democrat Party caucus in the House of Representatives. I have no doubt that his statement expresses the sentiments of his caucus. Do we really need a more in-your-face statement of the Democrats’ intentions for this nation?
