In Memoriam, September 11, 2001

I will never forget. It’s been 19 years and I still find myself deeply saddened every September 11. It’s a feeling that never goes away although, although time has lessened the raw emotion. I’ve written reams of words about 9/11 and actually find myself with nothing to say this year. [Read More]

Donald Trump

CNN is busy rewriting history to blame Trump for the riots

The polls show that the public hates the “mostly peaceful” riots, so CNN published a deeply dishonest “article” blaming Trump for the riots. On May 25, George Floyd, an overweight, violent ex-felon with serious heart disease, who took over three times the lethal dose of fentanyl, along with some other [Read More]

The Wuhan virus has accelerated existing trends

The Wuhan virus has sped up existing processes, such as hastening inevitable deaths, changing the business world, and exposing the left. You’ve probably read that 94% of Wuhan virus deaths happened to people who already had compromised health, whether from extreme age or diseases that were already putting stress on [Read More]

Agatha Christie — the Nostradamus of the year 2020

To rest from politics and riots, I’m reading Agatha Christie’s 1970 Passenger to Frankfurt. It’s a meh novel but is a superb 2020 prophecy. Agatha Christie was born in 1890, Torquay, England, meaning that she came of age in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Nevertheless, thanks to almost five decades [Read More]

Donald Trump

A Trump campaign advertisement I’d love to see

I think I’ve come up with a brilliant Trump/Pence advertisement for people who remember the 1980s. If you’re old enough to remember the 1980s, you’re also old enough to remember this famous anti-drug advertising campaign: I woke up with that commercial imprinted in my brain (Lord knows what I was [Read More]

Visions of America: videos from both left and right

There are several fascinating videos out there, so I thought I’d dedicate this post to them, along with a little moralizing of my own. First, Trump handles with incredible grace a question that only a hack pretending to be a reporter would ever ask: These Trump press conferences produce material [Read More]

Elections

Thoughts about the Wuhan virus, the government’s role in it all, and the Biden-Harris ticket (including debates and conservative panderers). Paging Dr. Kevorkian. When it comes to the Wuhan virus, liberty, and economic well-being, blue state and blue city voters elected the political equivalent of an army of Dr. Kevorkians. [Read More]

VIDEO: Happy wife, happy life

You don’t need to speak German to figure out what this fun music video is saying, and it’s really about emotional generosity. I like this concept: Happy wife, happy life. Social science (for whatever that’s worth) supports it: When a woman is happily married, her husband’s overall life satisfaction gets [Read More]

Antifa violence
Media Bias

The WaPo romanticizes violent Antifa anarchists

Looking at the WaPo’s gauzy view of Portland’s Antifa anarchists helps clarify that the American media are truly America’s enemies. Andy Ngo posted this tweet: As Portland experiences more than 70 days of violent protests, riots, arson attacks, soaring homicides & shootings, @washingtonpost actually published a glowing photo essay on [Read More]

Wuhan virus — there are silver linings to this cloud

There are silver linings to Wuhan virus madness. The past seven months have brought a great deal of useful clarity that we should celebrate. The other day, I wrote about the fact that Trump’s candidacy promises a return to normalcy. Under the slogan Make America Normal Again, we could have [Read More]
