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]

A few highlights from the draft 2020 Democrat Party Platform

The Democrats released a draft version of their 2020 platform. These are just a few highlights (or lowlights) from this 80-page racist, Marxist disaster. The draft platform is an 80-page-long, singe-spaced document. It’s very repetitive, repeating the same facts to make different points. It is as hard left as a [Read More]

Project Veritas’s latest Facebook exposé and Scott Adams’s Slaughtermeter

Project Veritas’s new exposé by political bias at Facebook reminded me that Scott Adams said a year ago that Big Tech would make a Trump loss a 100% certainty. Last year, Scott Adams created something called the “Slaughtermeter,” which was his mental tally of how badly Trump would be slaughtered [Read More]

The Fawlty Towers kerfuffle should be a Biden disaster

BBC’s attempt to cancel Fawlty Towers’ funniest episode may have been the worst “cancel culture” decision ever because it could (and should) hurt Joe Biden. The big non-Wuhan Virus, non-protest kerfuffle over the past few days was the decision that UKTV, a BBC-owned television network, make to delete the funniest Fawlty  [Read More]

The thrills and fun of attending a Trump rally (this one in Charleston)

The Trump rally in Charleston, South Carolina, was a joyous celebration of American virtues and of the uniquely American leader we are blessed to have. I avoid crowds, especially during the flu season, but when I had the chance to attend Trump’s rally in Charleston, South Carolina, just a short [Read More]

Bernie Sanders Rape Fantasy Essay

Bernie’s so-called “rape fantasy” essay will not damage him

If you read Bernie’s 1972 “rape fantasy” essay, you realize he was protesting both violent porn and emotional gender inequality, not promoting rape. At PJ Media, the always-excellent Matt Margolis writes that it’s time to ask “hard questions” about Bernie Sanders’ infamous rape fantasy essay. I’d like to suggest that [Read More]

This year’s race for president is an eerie repeat of the early days of the 1920 election season

A corrupt politician, a communist, a “government by expert” guy, and a pro-American iconoclast are running for president. This is 1920 all over again. The presidential election in 1920 was a very interesting one. At the end of the day, the race boiled down to a contest between the Republican [Read More]

What the double endorsement at the New York Times tells us

Faced with a field of highly defective Democrat candidates, the New York Times hides behind identity politics to endorse two seriously flawed women. Yesterday, the New York Times came in for a good deal of both criticism and laughter when it endorsed not one but two candidates: Elizabeth Warren and [Read More]

Things people need to know now that Bernie is rising

With Bernie Sanders once again a serious contender, it’s time to revisit my posts from 2016, which take a serious look at his dangerous proposed policies. Back in 2016, I found very disturbing the fact that my children’s friends were wildly enthused about Bernie Sanders. I certainly understood their innate [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 10/16/19: debates, impeachment theater, and European attitudes

In this Bookworm Beat, I admit I skipped the Democrat candidate debate, and instead focus on anti-democratic impeachment and snotty European attitudes. (This is a companion post to the No. 25 Bookworm Podcast which I uploaded yesterday. The content is mostly the same, although not identical. It won’t matter much, [Read More]

Explaining Israel’s Elections

It’s a bit complex, but I’ll take a shot at  explaining Israel’s elections. Unlike America, Israel has a parliamentary system, an unfortunate inheritance from previous British rule.Among other things, that means multiple political parties rather than just two. Israel, being a small country likewise lacks states and therefore, an electoral [Read More]

No. 3 Bookworm Room Podcast — Michelle Obama, Tulsi Gabbard, and cat ladies
