Deciphering Brexit: Representative self-government, anyone?

“I’d rather be governed by the first 2000 people in the Boston telephone directory than by the 2000 faculty members of Harvard University.” William F. Buckley Some sort of welcome sea change is at hand, Brexit in Britain and Donald Trump here being the two most obvious signs. As Buckley opined, some of us individuals and nations retain...

Liberals: Blame/defame your friends, exalt your enemies

UPDATE 10/5/17: Post-Vegas, same old, same old Never-Let-A-Crisis-Go-To-Waste drivel: Hillary & Co. still determined to do away with all those annoying Constitutional rights that stand in her way of controlling everyone and everything. Only at that unlikely moment when various Libs huddling together on the Leftist Plantation might wake up and realize who their real friends are (and who...

Classless, Genderless, Raceless, Faithless: ObamaWorld’s erasure of all defining lines.

UPDATE 4/27/18: In case there has ever been any doubt about the Left’s “concern” for so-called “victims’ in society, note the full-scale campaign to isolate and destroy one famous Black entertainer (Kanye West) who has refused to stay on their Hate Trump plantation. Class, gender, race, religion. What’s the next target on Obama World’s  “fundamental transformation” of our...

Hillary & Donald. What to do? Back to basics: read the Bible, study the Constitution,listen to Ella Fitzgerald.

Hillary or Donald. The choice is particularly dismal because the arguments are so persuasively negative on both sides. Both are who they have always been: she, the classic, ruthless power/money-mad politico on the make and take within the halls of political power; he the classic, ruthless power/money-mad businessman on the make and take in the marketplace. Neither is immune to the temptations of...

Obama is a classic fascist, not a socialist.

There is no clearer analysis of what Obama is than this 2012 piece by Thomas Sowell. Obama is not a socialist. He is a leftwing fascist in the long grand tradition of Liberal Fascism as brilliantly described in detail by Jonah Goldberg. One of the great misconceptions of modern politics is that fascism is exclusively...

Hobson’s Choice: Take it or leave it.

Hobson’s Choice: a choice of taking what is available or nothing at all. Nothing at all means Hillary Clinton. And what’s available on the horizon appears to be Donald Trump. Some choice. There is the hard, permanently deluded Left, young and old, who still think socialism is about kindness, compassion, fairness, free this and free that. That...

Principle, not personality

Americans are only human and just too damn adaptable. That’s what happens when personality takes precedence over principle.  Is this election cycle shaping up into a battle between two top-tier dissemblers? Donald? Hillary? Oh, what has happened, America? One feels the terrifying vertigo of shifting, crumbling earth beneath the feet. The only terra firma is that which has seen...

Big Gov Climate Change Fascists on the march

In case there’s any doubt, “Climate Change” is about power and money in high places, not about “saving the planet.” There are literally billions to be extorted from large corporations like Exxon when the ignorant public is convinced a fictitious crime against humanity has been committed. To avoid the inevitable “show trials” and crippling...
