North Korea negotiations reveal media’s ignorance

The pause in North Korea negotiations reveals that the media is locked in a dangerous imaginary world where negotiations play out like bad old-time movies.

Reparations: The Holy Grail Of Identity Politics (Part II)

Reparations that economically penalize modern Americans for ancient acts to benefit other modern Americans are not justified by any fair reading of history. 2020 Democrat presidential candidates immersed in race-obsessed identity politics (as a substitute for the class-based politics of pure Marxism) are pushing the for the Holy Grail of [Read More]

The border fence between El Paso and Juarez has an elaborate gate structure to allow floodwaters to pass under. The grates prevent people being able to cross under, and can be raised for floodwaters carrying debris.

MEXICO LINDO, A BRIEF HISTORY

Vassar Bushmills Three men, standing at the Mexican border, looking south: Man #1: Mexico Lindo. Man #2: I don’t see nothin’ so ‘lindo’ about it. Man #3: Just looks like more of Texas to me.

The border wall: A reminder about cement’s utility

Evidence, if you need it, that Trump’s cement or steel border wall is a country’s best friend when it comes to arrogant, illegal fence runners.

Reparations: The Holy Grail Of Identity Politics (Part I) (by Wolf Howling)

The Constitution prohibits reparations that would economically penalize modern Americans for centuries’ old sins for the benefit of other modern Americans. 2020 Democrat presidential candidates immersed in race-obsessed identity politics (as a substitute for the class-based politics of pure Marxism) are pushing the for the Holy Grail of victimhood: Reparations [Read More]

The historical ignorance and pettiness of today’s Stupid Leftists

In the hard past Americans thought themselves blessed; in the present, Stupid Leftists claim victimhood and attack the modernity that makes life safe and easy. I love visiting old graveyards. This is not because I’m a morbid, ghoulish type. It is, instead, because graveyards tell stories about times past and [Read More]

The Census Citizenship Question Is Silly… Unless This Happens

The  2020 Census citizenship question is one of the  battles taking place in congress right now that isn’t being publicized.

The LGBT crowd, driven mad by Trump, supports Iran’s anti-gay laws

When a gay magazine praises Iran’s treatment of gays and calls Trump a racist for challenging such laws, you’ve reached peak Trump Derangement Syndrome. In 2005, Iran hanged Mahmoud Asgari, 16, and Ayaz Marhoni, 18, for engaging in homosexual sex (although the Iranian authorities tried to cover by claiming the [Read More]
