Progressives collude to prevent investigation of attempted coup

By resisting an investigation of the apparent attempted coup against Trump, Progressives reject a core Anglo-American doctrine that no one is above the law. By Wolf Howling The “collusion investigation” — 2+ years, $30+ million, and using all the investigative resources of government — is over.  Given the specificity and [Read More]

A few thoughts about the trade war with China

China has been slowly sucking America dry through unfair trade. Trump is right to demand that it treat us fairly and I think he’ll win this trade war. When I graduated from high school, a family friend, recently widowed, sold me her deceased husband’s eight-year-old car for a price I [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 5/7/19 — the Vanishing Conservatives on Social Media edition

There are reasons for you to be very afraid of the social media crackdown on conservatives (even fringe ones), plus other scary stuff in today’s world. Democrats prepare for 2020 by silencing conservatives.  If I had to identify the scariest news today, it would be Twitter’s purge of conservatives, which [Read More]

Trump is no better or worse than other recent presidents

Hand-wringing about Trump’s personality and private life — when compared to most other recent Presidents — is akin to complaining that a leopard has spots. One of the things I hear from those who hate Trump personally is that he is worse than any other president who’s ever occupied the [Read More]

President Trump, NeverTrumpers, and keeping kosher

Regarding NeverTrumpers, are there two different kinds — the sleazy grifters and the genuinely principled people who cannot swallow the idea of Trump? The Torah (that is, the five books of Moses) imposes multiple life rules on Jews and how many of these rules a given Jew follows depends on [Read More]

Avenatti, Hillary, and Trump: thoughts about character and sociopaths

Avenatti and Clinton are self-serving criminals, while Trump is just a boaster and brawler — and he uses those traits constitutionally to serve America. I don’t know about you, but I’m finding completely fascinating the lengthening laundry list of malfeasance associated with Michael Avenatti. It turns out he’s not just [Read More]

President Trump is the “dayenu” president

No matter how imperfect Trump is, looking at his record of accomplishments, as to each one I say the Passover word “dayenu” — it would have been enough. During the Passover dinner, one of the songs Jewish families sing is Dayenu. It is in the nature of a “count your [Read More]

The “no news is good news” open thread

Thanks to President Trump, it’s mostly good news out there, which is great for America (yay!), but limiting for a blogger. What do you think? Scott Adams made an excellent point the other day, which is that, now that the media can no longer waffle on about Russian collusion (at [Read More]

Random thoughts on the unfolding Russia Collusion hoax

With Barr promising to investigate the Russia Collusion Hoax, it’s a good time to think about the motivations driving those who masterminded the hoax. Yesterday was another day spent pulling out ivy, a process I found so exhausting, I couldn’t write last night. Not writing, though, doesn’t mean not thinking. [Read More]

Low Black Unemployment Dem Slavery

That time when Democrats were responsible for low Black unemployment

Trump boasted in his Grand Rapids speech that his policies were responsible for historically low Black unemployment. Dems shouldn’t take that lying down. Never forget which American political party was the slavery party. And don’t forget either that it was the Democrats who, ignoring the great Frederick Douglass’s insistence that [Read More]
