Jeffrey Epstein and the war on sex crime in Trump’s America

My sense is that Jeffrey Epstein will not hurt Trump, even if Epstein names names, because Trump is all about stopping pedophiles, not being one. I first learned about Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest for sex trafficking when I saw this tweet from News-weak: I found News-weak’s framing to be interesting, to [Read More]

Elizabeth Warren as imagined by Monty Python

Watching Elizabeth Warren boast about her “plan” for Mitch McConnell shows she has a doppelgänger in the Monty Python universe — John Cleese’s Anne Elk. Do you remember how, during last week’s debate, Elizabeth Warren stated that she had a plan for dealing with Mitch McConnell and then promptly followed [Read More]

Benjamin Wittes and witless logic about Trump

The Benjamin Wittes “I believe” tweetstorm about Trump, intended to expose conservative “Doublethink,” instead exposed Leftist irrationality and ignorance. The anti-Trump blogosphere, both Leftists and #NeverTrumpers, is excited about an endless series of tweets from Benjamin Wittes all intended, in a sarcastic way, to challenge Trump and his supporters. Before [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]

Fisking the Left’s escalating demands for Trump’s impeachment

Even though Mueller has totally vindicated Trump, you can expect cries for impeachment to intensify. Learn here how stupid those impeachment demands will be. One of the Progressives on my real-me Facebook feed contends that she never wanted Trump to be impeached because, as Nancy Pelosi said, “he’s just not [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 12/6/18 — the super quick edition

This Bookworm Beat quickly looks at silly queers, the fake #MeToo movement, the party of non-science, bad Islam, dead England, the Iran Deal, and more. Honestly, I don’t know where the day went. Here it is, after 8 in the evening, and although I’ve been busy all day, I can’t [Read More]

Rape Accusations, Leftists, Blurred Lines, and poor Brett Kavanaugh

Once Orwellian Leftists got their hands on it, “rape” as traditionally understood became a malleable concept to be used to destroy political enemies. Item: Former Vice President Joe “Creepy Touch” Biden, when announcing that the Obama White House was creating a task force to address campus rape, stated “One in [Read More]

Bookworm Beat 9/1/2018: the “things we see on Saturdays” edition

This is a hodge-podge about debased funerals, corrupt investigations, stupid Leftists, Hollywood hate, and other stuff to amuse and dismay the reader. Regarding the obsequies for McCain, it’s clear that the Wellstone funeral was a warm-up. I’d like to think that ordinary Americans, rather than being moved politically by demagoguery [Read More]

DIGGSTOWN, A CULT CLASSIC BY JAMES WOODS.

Vassar Bushmills I first saw “Diggstown” in a theater, which means I saw it in 1992 after returning from the recently-collapsed USSR. In Cincinnati. I immediately tagged it as classic, passed it onto my sons, more avid movie-goers who concurred. But I didn’t go to see James Wood. I had [Read More]

The Russia collusion — emerging facts finally jive with obvious motives *UPDATED*

The real Russia collusion — Obama and Clinton team with Russia against Trump — makes sense if you look at the motives driving the various actors. Da Vinci once said that “Every action needs to be prompted by a motive.” Motive is certainly a helpful tool when it comes to bringing [Read More]

Common Cause

Vassar Bushmills Q: Has America had any enemy or antagonist since World War II which the Democratic Party has NOT made common cause with? To make “Common cause” generally means “to unite one’s interest with another’s” and since the 1970s the term has been associated with a liberal leaning political group [Read More]

Economics

“It’s The Economy, Stup — . . . oh.” (By Wolf Howling)

The proggies are trying hard to hide the fact that Obama’s economy was pathetic and that Trumps’ economy is already setting records that win elections. Always nice to see Ron, isn’t it?  That clip is from 1980, when Ronald Reagan ran on a promise to cure President Carter’s “economic malaise.”  I [Read More]

Peter Thiel’s excellent point about political correctness and indulgences

When Peter Thiel compared Political Correctness and the Catholic Church in 1517, he revealed how truly corrupt Political Correctness really is. I had the pleasure last night of attending an event at which Peter Thiel was the main speaker. Before he started speaking I knew that he was one of [Read More]

The Hollywood sex scandals reveal a widening pool of damage

A post in which I opine about Hollywood sex scandals, pedophilia, dirty old men, and the many choices people make that enable truly bad behaviors. Looking at the bloodletting that’s spreading from Hollywood, to the mainstream media, to Leftist hi-tech corporations (e.g., Amazon) led someone, and I can’t remember who [Read More]

Dueling headlines: Uranium One and Frederica Wilson

Perhaps the most shocking thing of all about the Uranium One corruption scandal is the drive-by media’s deliberate effort to hide the story from the public. The following headlines are only a slight exaggeration. I’ve used “The Hill,” which broke the Uranium One story, as a representative of those few [Read More]
