So, it’s Saturday. How about a video round up, of some others views. Let’s start with Pat Condell A bit harshly stated, perhaps, but I can’t say that I disagree with him. The Right Angle guys have something to say, as well. And a bit on fake news, and where it comes from. […]

Well, we all made it through 2016 for better or worse. It was quite a year, with many political things roiling the waters. A lot of them were merely personal, and of no account to the rest of us. Especially for us Americans, who have dealt with a president for 8 years who is a […]

It’s been quite a while since we featured Victor Davis Hanson, no good reason for it, it simply hasn’t happened. But he wrote one of the best articles on why Obama’s legacy is so tainted with most of us. Here’s some In its remaining days in power, the Obama administration suddenly punished Vladimir Putin’s Russia […]

Well, happy Monday, other than some commenting, here and elsewhere, I try to take Sundays off, so often my article on Monday is a bit rushed (lame too, sometimes). In any case, this video, from Townhall and The Federalist, has ben kicking around for a bit. But I wanted to run it the first time […]

Something a bit different today, but it still follows our long running themes. Both you never had it so good as well as reality is real. The world we live in was built by men who understood reality and found ways to harness it for our benefit. That harnessing has led to the world we live in, […]

I again quoted whoever it was that said we take Donald Trump seriously but not literally again last evening. It is true, we do, we voted for him because he looks to us like a real outsider, who is his own man, not an owned man of the progs. It was exactly the same impulse that […]

Yesterday, Jan Hansenn in comments proposed that we are not logical in our hopes for Trump, that others fear him, not because he may succeed but that he may damage the country, and finally that his business career is not all that successful. He also referenced sites that I consider mostly fake news, the New York Times, […]

From Gatestone: European anti-Americanism — which was on the wane during the presidency of Barack Obama, who steered the United States on a course of globalism rather than nationalism — is back with a vengeance. Europe’s media establishment has greeted Donald Trump’s election victory with a vitriol not seen since the George W. Bush presidency, […]

So what shall we talk about to start the year? Could be almost anything, couldn’t it? Got all the same problems we did last year, but hey, I (and I suspect you) screwed off, last night, and the dog ate my homework. So we’ll start off with some stuff from other people. Like this year-end […]

A bit more about Trump’s cabinet, and why I too, think it very exceptional. From Stephen Hayward I tweeted out a few days ago that so far, President-elect Donald Trump’s senior level and cabinet picks are to the right of Ronald Reagan in 1981, and would find the approval of Calvin Coolidge. Naturally I wasn’t […]

In yesterday’s post, Jessica was addressing the malaise that so many of us felt under Obama. That feeling that the world was going to hell in a handcart. I shared it, of course, and for some reason, Trump’s election has lightened it. That is not to say that Trump is really a conservative, nothing much in his […]

One of the more interesting things here in the last year is that our Dutch readership has increased to the point that it often is higher than the UK, and occasionally approaches that of our US readership. It’s interesting, and I have no real handle on why, although you are certainly welcome here. This is, of […]

I’m going to talk about the upcoming Presidency some this week, and I think Jessica, in this post, speaks to part of the reason Trump won, and I thought it more reasonable to simply repost her article, than to extensively quote from it. We will be looking at some of the reasons but it surely […]

Cleaning out some tabs, interesting stuff that we’ve been hoarding. Well, yeah, he makes some sense to me, at that, From Melanie Phillips: The hand-wringing by western politicians and commentators over the appalling humanitarian catastrophe in Aleppo reveals something far worse even than the nauseating virtue-signalling of pointlessly blaming themselves for having decided not […]

Is there anybody in the real world who doesn’t know this? President-elect Donald Trump could save U.S. taxpayers and business billions of dollars in hidden compliance costs by simplifying the nation’s bloated and incomprehensible tax code. That’s according to information presented in a recent report from the Tax Revolution Institute. From the report: 74,608 pages, 2.4 […]

Melanie Phillips had some things to say about feminized Britain and neutered men. Here it is. I don’t necessarily agree with every point she makes here, but I do most of them. And you know, I wonder if it is connected with this from Andrew Klavan. I think it might well be. Many times we accuse […]
