A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to a Quorum

On Friday, the talking heads and Twitterati excoriating Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kent.) were so scandalized that they couldn’t quite get to telling us what terrible thing he had done. “GOP’s Massie outrages House,” screamed The Washington Post headline. The paper informed that “the Republican from northern Kentucky has frequently voted

Bring the Bozos Home

“Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced Sunday he has covid-19,” The Washington Post reports, “and four other GOP senators are quarantined. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) disclosed Monday that her husband, too, is infected with the virus.” Social media was not uniformly brimming with support for the Kentucky senator, of course, and

Rage Against the Machine

The Democratic Insider Machine’s pushing of sorta senile Biden against socialist Sanders is quite breathtaking. But that isn’t even the entirety of the Machine’s anti-democratic agenda. “The establishment narrative warfare against [Representative Tulsi] Gabbard’s campaign dwarfs anything we’ve seen against Sanders,” writes Caitlin Johnstone on her popular blog, “and the

In, Over and About

Sometimes losing track of a story pays off. Last week, Facebook and Twitter and that minor player, the “major” news media, erupted with Democrats glorying in and gloating over and harrumphing about a story from Reliable Liar & Leaker Adam Schiff — I think that may be his semi-official position

The Superdelegate Zombie Apocalypse

Back in 2016, this commentary was perhaps the first howl in the political wilderness against the unfairness of the Democratic Party’s use of “superdelegates” — office holders and party officials who by party rules automatically serve as unelected but voting delegates at the national convention . . . which chooses

The Mandela Effect

People have been known to plagiarize college term papers. Even a few political speeches have been surreptitiously copied and brazenly re-orated without proper attribution. But you can’t plagiarize getting arrested, can you? Not really. What you can do is lie about being arrested — just make it up out of

Michael Bloomberg, Donald Trump, stop and frisk,

Frisky Friends

“WOW, BLOOMBERG IS A TOTAL RACIST!” tweeted President Donald J. Trump. He was reacting to a recording, recently unearthed, of Democratic presidential aspirant Michael Bloomberg speaking to the Aspen Institute in 2015 about his controversial “stop-and-frisk” police policy while mayor of New York City. “Ninety-five percent of your murders, murderers

Dem Noodles

Though skipping Iowa and New Hampshire, Michael Bloomberg’s advertisements are ubiquitous on television and YouTube seemingly everywhere in America. “New Hampshire voters to Steyer: Make it stop!” reads a Politico headline sparked by that taller, poorer billionaire’s unbearable barrage of spots. At Reason, Eric Boehm notes that Bloomberg and Tom

Draft Winds Blowing

A month ago, the U.S. drone strike against an Iranian commander in Baghdad sparked enough public concern over military conscription to overwhelm the Selective Service System’s website.  “With the ongoing military conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan unlikely to end any time soon,” former Congressman Ron Paul writes, people are “right

Impeachments Are Forever?

The impeachment of President Donald J. Trump, just concluded in the Senate with an acquittal, was — so far as the Senate trial portion of the exercise is concerned — the least partisan presidential impeachment in U.S. history. That’s because Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) was the first senator ever to

The Blue Plate Special

The biggest stories don’t always come in threes, but they sure did this week. The Iowa Democratic Caucus debacle, President Trump’s State of the Union Address, and the Senate’s acquittal of the president after the House’s impeachment — big stories of big losses for Democrats. As I write this, we

Tulsi Gabbard,

Defamed by the Devil

Challenged to a push-up contest at a town hall campaign meeting in New Hampshire, Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) hit the floor and won. The presidential candidate (polling at 5.4 percent in the Granite State) probably will not win the nomination, alas. Or her lawsuit against Hillary Clinton. Lawsuit? Yes, a
