“Give Me A Ho! Give Me A Hum!”

     It’s time to exercise our arithmetic skills:      A group of two dozen Senate Republicans have signed a letter vowing to oppose any increase in the nation’s debt limit unless Congress agrees to spending cuts to help pay down the national debt.      “We, the undersigned members of the Senate Republican Conference, write to …

Yeah, Right

     Are we really expected to believe this?      A former Las Vegas Judge committed suicide a year after she resigned from her position after facing an ethics investigation.      Per the Clark County coroner’s office, Judge Melanie Andress-Tobiasson died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.      Here’s what happened, in chronological sequence: Andress-Tobiasson’s sixteen-year-old daughter …

Can They Possibly Be That Blatant?

     It seems incredible…but their shamelessness might just be our best weapon against them:      The World Economic Forum—an annual meeting of international business leaders, political figures, and other elites—is well underway in Davos, Switzerland. One of the topics of discussion on Monday was “The Clear and Present Danger of Disinformation,” presented by former CNN …

Crisis!

     Help, Gentle Reader! I’m in a crisis. Yes, a new one. It’s not categorically new — I’ve been here before — but it’s unprecedentedly intense.      You see, I don’t know what to fear. The choices are too many. The fear-peddlers have overwhelmed my ability to apportion my fear energy. I’m starting to “thrash” …

Los Peones Y Las Haciendas

     In his book The Bell Curve, co-authored with the late Richard Herrnstein, Charles Murray reminded his readers that there’s more than one kind of “conservatism.” The American version, which emphasizes individual liberty and responsibility, contrasts sharply with the Latin American version, in which a heavily privileged, propertied class holds itself above and aloof from …

The Ongoing Firestorm

     Emily Oster’s saccharine-saturated column in The Atlantic, in which she argues – unpersuasively – for a “pandemic amnesty” has ignited a blaze that, so far, has refused to go out. Indeed, it seems to be mounting as the days count down to the midterm elections…and that’s a good thing.      I’ve already said my …

Establishment Politicians Want You Not To Read This

     Courtesy of the esteemed Mike Hendrix, we have this highly significant story from Big Country Expat:      Now here in the Untied Staatz, we still pretend that elections matter. In truth, the only elections that actually -do- matter are the local ones…school board (need to fire ALL of them fuckers nationwide IMO, Jes’ Sayin’) …

Is it Safe? Part 1

The wannabe despot is a coward. Before he acts he needs to feel the environment has been well prepared before he makes the next move. The title of this series comes from the line endlessly repeated by the Lawrence Olivier character as he tortured the one portrayed by Dustin Hoffman in Marathon Man. Well, in …

The Church Under Attack

     Political matters can go hang for the moment. Just now, my focus is on more permanent things…some of them eternal. ***      Surely this piece is not so far in the past that my Gentle Readers will have forgotten it. It may have drawn more giggles than sober ponderings, but the true import of …

Agents Of The Status Quo

     Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket. – a misquote of Eric Hoffer      Up to now, America has not been a good milieu for the rise of a mass movement. What starts out here as a mass movement ends up as a racket, a …

The Pacification

     My thoughts are more scattered than usual this morning, for a bevy of reasons my Gentle Readers would probably find uninteresting, excessively personal, or both. But when I sense that the floor of our national handbasket is being ripped away by flesh-eating zombies, such that the lake of bubbling lava below is plainly visible, …

Fight Fiercely, Like Harvard…But Lose!

     Concerning the never to be adequately damned betrayal of conservatism by the pseudo-conservative NeverTrumpers, a.k.a. “Conservatism, Inc,” Ace captures the core of their mindset:      They live in very leftwing Blue Cities in which ultraleft governance is the norm, in which ultraleft social norms are the norm, in which ultraleft political imperatives are the …

A Little Confirmation

     Now and then, we get a “Kinsley gaffe” – i.e., when a politician accidentally tells the truth – that tells us more than we ever knew. (Sometimes it’s more than we wanted to know, but that’s a subject for another tirade.) We have one before us today:      For decades, the Democratic Party had …

What Alternatives?

     That’s the question on millions of Americans’ minds after the utter, protracted betrayal of Republican officials – federal and state – to represent the preferences of the voters that elected them. Their most recent defection is on the subject of greatest importance to social stability: the right to keep and bear arms. Fourteen GOP …

“Why Vote Republican?”

     Jack Kerwick asks us, directly and plainly. Here’s the Sunday Punch:      How exactly is voting Republican a matter of “fighting the Left,” or “fighting for the heart and soul of America?” Notice that GOP politicians and conservative media personalities are always glaringly vague on this point. They just treat as axiomatic that a …

Methods Of Control

     Mike Miles at 90 Miles From Tyranny consistently comes up with good stuff of many kinds. Today he brings us this:      It got me thinking, of course. If I were bent on world domination but, for whatever reason, desired ardently to stay out of the spotlight, I would want to put men in …

Yes, Virginia, There IS a Great Replacement In Progress

     And you are not permitted to obstruct it:      I admire Paul Joseph Watson immensely. God alone knows how many people in the British Establishment would love to see him dead. The video above is the briefest taste of his oeuvre. All of it is worth watching.      While he usually writes (and videographs) …

The Great Othering

     I’m sure my Gentle Readers are familiar with the neologism othering. It’s been used in connection with common allegations that some minority group has been targeted for elimination. Supposedly, the targeted group is slathered with propaganda designed to convince the majority that “they are not like us – they are others.” This is used …

Political Sleight Of Hand

     The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. – H. L. Mencken      “The bull wears himself out on the cape and never sees the sword.” – Robert A. …

Fear Alone Provides Insufficient Test Subjects

What Felix Rex implies is that the forced vax campaigns provided billionaires’ scientists billions of non-consenting human guinea pigs upon which to test potential life-extending technology. They must’ve anticipated that fear alone wouldn’t turn all of humanity into Howard Hughes type germaphobes, hence the gradual forced campaigns were already planned for when fear no longer …
