Roy Moore, Sex, the Seventies, and the South

Posted: December 5, 2017 at 11:00 am   /   Elections, Features, National, Politics, Top Stories

I had to wince at Roy Moore’s answers to Sean Hannity a couple of weeks back. Specifically, there was far too much talk about how the mothers of a seventeen- and an eighteen-year-old girl “liked” Roy and were pleased to have him courting their daughters–how he never asked a girl out without first consulting the […]

The Real Name of the Progressive God

Posted: August 10, 2017 at 9:00 am   /   Features, National, Top Stories

John Harris If the contemporary progressive is a religious cultist, then who is the god he adores?  We can immediately identify who that god is not by enumerating certain possible attributes of the divine that would be anathema to the Left. 1) This deity does not have a reality independent of the human agencies who […]

Why the Left Hates Sex and Loves Islam

What We’re Missing About Progressivism: Not the Politics, But the Religion For some time now, I’ve been growing exasperated with commentators who recite long, long lists of hypocritical Leftist acts at the drop of a hat. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Lois Lerner’s punitive IRS, “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor”, the […]

Why I Hate the Game I Love

Posted: June 17, 2017 at 10:30 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

I admire people who make the most of what they have—and, by the same logic, I admit to a disdain of people who lean heavily on artificial supports rather than develop their own powers and abilities. An intelligent being (such as a human) must have freedom of choice before he or she may be said […]

The “Great Russian Hack-In” Is Pure Disinformation—American-Style

Posted: January 13, 2017 at 1:30 pm   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

Fake news, Russian hacking, a stolen election… oh, my God!  It’s really Doomsday this time!  It’s Armageddon!  It’s the end of civilization, culture, free speech, abortion, health care, omnisexuality, and bathrooms of choice!  The Moon is splitting!  The killer asteroid is nearing!  A Netflix miniseries looms!  Trumpmageddon! I’ve been waiting for all of this to […]

Child Rape and Girl Slavery in the Old West: A New Myth for a Sick Time

Posted: December 29, 2016 at 11:30 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

I wrote a post a little more than a week ago about the proliferation of half-truths and hare-brained notions in our fast-decaying society. At the time, I was unaware that “fake news” was poised to explode into the headlines; for this subject has lain heavily upon my mind for years, at least since the demise […]

Embracing Paranoia: Mistrust the News Media—But Beware of Their Accusers

Posted: December 12, 2016 at 6:00 am   /   Features, Politics, Top Stories

As 2017 looms closely, we all know that our news media cannot be trusted… sort of.  On the other hand, you cannot NOT trust someone somewhere.  The information on the basis of which you know Katie Couric and Brian Williams for liars has itself originated in a human, earthbound source.  How do you know that […]

The PC Generation: Whiney Children Who Won’t Let You Wash Their Cut

Posted: November 29, 2016 at 1:22 pm   /   Politics

The German news site over which I glance to begin most mornings tells me today a) that deciding whether Castro was more villain than hero is impossible, and b) that the Wisconsin election returns may yet be reversed and leave Hillary the victor. Besides making me want to lose my breakfast, this air-headed sort of […]

My Name Is Nobody: The Death of a Political Constituency

Posted: November 27, 2016 at 2:00 pm   /   Elections, Features, Politics, Top Stories

I am “none of the above”. Now that the dust of the 2016 election has settled, we have endured a couple of weeks of being told by talking heads just who we are, what we want, and how we were misunderstood or ill served.  Only I do not recognize myself in any post mortem.  Perhaps […]
