A Kinsley Gaffe From The Vegetable-in-Chief

     Whoever is writing Biden’s speeches is letting the truth show through the propaganda, and no mistake:      Well, folks, you know — and I mean this sincerely; you’re going to think this is a little out of whack what I’m going to talk about — but, you know, democracy is at stake. Literally, there’s …

The Breaking Storm

     “Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson afterwards.” – Vernon Law      Winston Churchill’s treatment of World War II included a volume on the antecedents to the war titled The Gathering Storm. It was an appropriate title for an account of those years, as the follies of the …

Against The Anti Brigades

     The following video is a snippet from a 1977 BBC interview of Sylvester Stallone about why he wrote Rocky. It’s both surprising and, to those who doubted his intellect, revealing:      Stallone’s diagnosis of the cultural trends is dead on – and even more important for our time. Americans wanted entertainment that would resonate …

Starting Small

     The BLM rioters demonstrated that the “forces of order” were unwilling to enforce the law against them to maintain public order. Riots such as the ones that drove sociologist Charles Murray and other prominent conservative figures out of the halls where they were supposed to appear have reinforced that impression and emboldened the Leftists …

The Run-Up Part 2: The Progenitor

     If you know of Herbert Marcuse, the following Leftist definition of “liberating tolerance,” from his 1965 essay “Repressive Tolerance,” might be familiar to you. If not, read on!      Liberating tolerance, then, would mean intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left. As to the scope of this tolerance …

The Run-Up

     Scene-setting, stage-dressing, “battlespace preparation,” call it what you will.      It didn’t begin with Biden’s fatuous and inflammatory “soul of the nation” speech. It’s been going on for years. It can be traced back at least as far as the November 2000 election of George W. Bush as president. My fear is that it’s …

This Is How Much They Fear You

     And it’s no small amount: BREAKING: NY AG Orders Steve Bannon Perp-Walked in Front of Prostrate Media America is now a Purge Country pic.twitter.com/OF48Ep89jf — Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) September 8, 2022      Steve Bannon is no threat to anyone…except as a purveyor of facts and theses. But the vicious, utterly low-minded Letitia James, …

To Law-Abiding New Yorkers

     … who, like me, would like to be equipped to defend yourselves in public: this is your “governor:” Everyone needs to do their part to combat gun violence. @AmericanExpress, @Mastercard & @Visa should categorize firearm purchases & flag suspicious activity – just like they do for millions of other transactions. Together we can help …

“That Can’t Be True!”

     The title phrase is a reaction, elicited from some, to the most “extreme” news. It’s the verbal equivalent of putting hands over eyes and screaming “Make it go away!” And sane Americans are having it ever more frequently.      However, it’s dangerous. What makes it dangerous is the word can’t, which is always a …

The Speech

     No, I didn’t watch or listen to it. I have a very low tolerance for political blather from anyone…well, other than myself, of course. But from the snippets I’ve been reading, it was at least as bad as We the Normals® expected it to be:      America, ladies and gentlemen, is under attack and …

Still Not Convinced We’re At War?

     If you don’t believe me, believe him:      Joe Biden made a bizarre and passive aggressive comment targeting “brave right-wing Americans” Tuesday, during an political rally in Pennsylvania touting his latest gun grab….      Rather than attack Republicans in Congress who might oppose the initiative, Biden mocked all conservative Americans who support the Second …

Third-Party Forgiveness

     Joseph Sobran once composed an instructive parable that went something like this: Davis is listening to Jones speak of some injustice done to him by Smith. Davis waits until Jones runs down, and then says, “Oh, that’s all right. I forgive Smith for what he did to you.”      How do you suppose Jones …

That “Clunk!” Feeling

     You know it. If you’re a functioning adult you’ve almost certainly felt it: that sublime sensation when an insight strikes, and something formerly incomprehensible coalesces into perfect sense. I had it many a time when I was laboring in the STEM fields. It was always glorious.      Allow me to ease into my subject …

The Cancelers’ First-Priority Target (UPDATED)

     It’s none other than Libs of TikTok: These are the people teaching your kids pic.twitter.com/2xGO1UYM8R — Libs of TikTok (@libsoftiktok) August 9, 2022      This is but an item from the fringe of the transgender-evangelists’ madness. Madness, when both tolerated and celebrated, engenders further madness. The unwillingness to confront madness and label it as …

We Have A Winner In The Ultimate Obscenity Contest

     And it’s Walt Disney Corporation:      Walt Disney has been cancelled by Walt Disney.      Here’s the back story:      When Disneyland first opened in 1955, Walt Disney delivered a speech welcoming people to the happiest place on Earth.      To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here …

It’s Fun To Swim At The…

     YMCA? Perhaps not for Julie Jaman:      Julie Jaman, an 80-year-old woman from Port Townsend, Washington, expressed her discomfort and fear when she encountered a male in the women’s shower area at the local YMCA.      The YMCA’s reaction? Jaman was permanently banned from the facility, according to the Port Townsend Free Press.      …

When Wrong Is Right

     A conversation that occurred between great jazz pianist Thelonious Monk and an aspiring musician provides three-fourths of today’s title. The young man played a sequence of notes to Monk, and asked him “What would be the right continuation?” Monk replied, “Wrong is right.” Another jazz icon, guitarist John Abercrombie, provides a similar anecdote about …

The Terror Is Approaching

     And it is intentional:      Darren Brady, 51, has slammed Hampshire Police for ‘impeding his right to free speech’ after he was placed into handcuffs on Friday at his home in Aldershot for sharing a meme.      Footage of the arrest was widely shared on social media and showed an officer who told Mr …

The War On Compassion

     There have been quite a few “war on” initiatives popularized by the statists of our formerly free nation. I’m sure you can name a few names without straining: “War on Drugs,” “War on Poverty,” and “War on Terror” practically leap to mind. Note that in each of those cases, “war” is being declared against …

The Essence Of Totalitarianism

     From Power Line’s John Hinderaker:      Currently the Left is “demonstrating” against the Supreme Court justices who concurred in the Dobbs decision. A few nights ago, as Scott has noted, left-wingers harassed Justice Brett Kavanaugh and other diners at the Morton’s steak house in D.C. Liberals viewed this effort as a triumph–Kavanaugh reportedly had …
