Strange Days

We live in a strange time when a possible official UFO disclosure by the government doesn’t seem strange at all. What’s odd is one of the two major American political parties proudly talking up socialism. What’s weird is the increasing financial instability of the country’s top two social programs, Medicare

The Atrocity Exhibition

News commentary can seem like a race, commentators reacting as if to the crack of the starting-gun, scrambling to make sure they do not come in last. Yet, in stories like this weekend’s round of mass shootings, being last to comment might be something to aspire towards.  As I have

Into and Out of the Muck

Yesterday I referenced “pigs flying” . . . and Icarus’s waxed-wing fail.  Today, it’s just about the muck. Now, I am on the road and definitely not catching every word of the Democratic debates. But amidst much nonsense and embarrassment — and there was a lot of it, from what

The Trump of the Will

It’s over — our long national nightmare is over. Or is it?  Congress’s “movie” version of Robert Mueller’s book-length report on Trump-Russia collusion flopped. That is, Wednesday’s hearings were an “optics . . . disaster.”  The Democrats and their media cheerleaders had put so much stock in the event, hoping

Inslee, AOC, and the Watermelon

Washington State Governor Jay Inslee is running to lead the Democratic Party in the next presidential election to take back the imperial capital, Washington, D.C. His chief issue? Fighting “man-made climate change.” But he also dares to say goofy things, apparently on the theory that It Works For Trump. Seeking

Playing Cards with Democrats

“[T]he thing that really set me off this week,” former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) said on NBC’s Meet the Press, “was them going after Sharice Davids.” The “them” are four freshman congresswomen — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.)

Ngo Go Zone

Last week, photojournalist Andy Ngo was attacked on the streets of Portland, Oregon, while video-recording a Patriot Prayer march and its Antifa opposition. As they attacked, one malefactor can be heard screaming, “F**k you, Andy!” Another cried, “F**king owned bitch.” It was personal. They knew Mr. Ngo, who had been

America, the Debatable?

“A divided America gathers for Fourth,” The Washington Post headlined its lead story about the Independence Day celebration on the National Mall.*  Give me two minutes to unite us. On the night of July 3rd, stuck in horrendous holiday traffic, I stumbled upon a National Public Radio broadcast discussing the

Dependence or Independence?

“America does not want to witness a food fight,” Senator Kamala Harris said at last week’s debate, reprimanding her squabbling fellow Democratic Party presidential contenders. “They want to know how we’re going to put food on their table.” The no doubt well-rehearsed line drew raucous applause. She’s right; we’re not

They Aren’t Lying Now?

“You lie!” When U.S. Representative Joe Wilson (R-SC) shouted this at President Barack Obama during 2009’s State of the Union — scandal! How dare he? At issue was whether federal tax dollars would aid illegal immigrants under Obamacare. Democrats denied that any such thing would happen. Indeed, the very idea

Not Your Mother’s How-To Manual

“Want to Dismantle Capitalism?” asks The Nation headline for a recent interview with feminist Sophie Lewis, immediately answering: “Abolish the Family.” In a world of YouTube videos on how to do almost everything, apparently the progressive publication noticed something missing: There is no reliable guide for going full commie.

Cuban Slave Doctors

Did Cuba and Brazil just prove Sen. Rand Paul right . . . about socialism? Eight years ago, the ophthalmologist-turned-politician raised progressive ire in a subcommittee hearing. “With regard to the idea of whether you have a right to health care, you have to realize what that implies,” the junior
