Progressives’ crude political commentary about North Korea [NSFW]

Given a vexing, dangerous, and complicated problem like North Korea, Progressives reduce the issue to school-boy sniggering about sexual prowess. One of the things that distinguishes Progressives from Conservatives is that the former are certain that they’re very smart. For example, they point out that wealthy Blue enclaves have a [Read More]

An American In Babylon – Trump’s UN Speech

President Trump’s UN speech attracted a fair amount of controversy among the chattering classes. It shouldn’t have. The United Nations has become a byword for useless, dysfunctional bureaucracy a mere 72 years after its founding. Like Belshazzar’s feast, it spends lavishly and conducts itself with opulence, but is rotted through [Read More]

Nicholas Kristoff wrong about risky president
Donald Trump

Dear Nicholas Kristoff: Trump isn’t the scary guy. Obama gambled with America.

Nicholas Kristoff calls Trump scary and reckless. Somehow he missed eight years of Obama’s incredibly scary and reckless behavior. The only time I ever take Nicholas Kristoff seriously is when he writes about the horrors of obstretric fistula. It’s a dreadful affliction and there are charities that are trying to [Read More]

Facebook provides a useful, and disturbing, insight into the Leftist world view

Thanks to my Facebook feed, I have a front row seat for the Leftist world view, which is occasionally amusing and invariably somewhat frightening. One of the useful things about my Facebook feed is the plethora of posts educating me about the Leftist world view. My feed means that, unlike [Read More]
