Trapped by the Ghosts of Corrupt Administrations Past

It’s little wonder sane people have taken the Left’s messaging strategy regarding impeachment and the Justice Department inspector general’s new report as mere political inanity and mendacity. Government officials, past and present, who fear potential indictment for abuse of power for personal and partisan gain, their legal “experts” at Lawfare, their collusion media cohorts, and

The Climate Cult’s ‘Grave New World’

As a proud debunker of the apocalyptic climate scam, it’s only natural that the climate cult has a plethora of biodegradable slings and arrows to hurl at my person. Among their most common claims is that I use “straw man” arguments to describe the climate cult’s destructive agenda. Yet, no sooner is this straw man

How Our Administrative State Aids Communist China

Racked with “Orange Man Bad” onanism, the Left and its collusion media remain enthralled with their on-Beltway show trial, “The Spy Who Leaked Me”—produced by Deep State-False Light Pictures; directed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.); scripted by Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and his committee staff in collaboration with a hearsay spouting “whistleblower.” As a

Petri-Dish Leftists

As most of my Generation X cohorts were too young at the time to process fully the abysmal political reasons why the 1970s sucked, network television did its part to ensure we kids realized some of the pop-cultural reasons. I enter into evidence Exhibit 3,471,983: ABC’s 1976 “made-for-television” movie, “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble.” “Based

Trump “in a way that brings people together, that is healing rather than dividing.

Twitching and Grunting in the Great White North

As a youngster in the 1970s, on Labor Day weekends my family would vacation in Ipperwash, Ontario, on the shore of Lake Huron. For much of that time, American and Canadian relations were often strained, especially over foreign policy, and these governmental tensions could filter down to the respective citizenries. Once, on the way to

Beto O’Rourke: A Clockwork Leftist

In an 1819 landmark Supreme Court ruling, McCulloch v. Maryland, Chief Justice John Marshall famously opined: “The power to tax involves the power to destroy."
