Video Thursday

How about some videos today? Prime Minister May is coming over this week. What could be the best outcome for her, and for us? I think Dan Hannan has it right. Let’s do this, cousins.   This is how we all capitalize on Brexit, and the deal making Trump. A bit more, from BBC 4, […]

Video Saturday

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. […]

Kellyanne Conway becomes First Woman to Win Presidency!

Eventually, I’ll have something more to say about the election but, I simply didn’t believe Trump had much chance, and so I didn’t have my thoughts ordered. In fact, 2012 rather demoralized me, more than I knew, and nothing since has lifted that gloom. Your mileage may differ, but I bet I’m not alone. Meantime, […]

The Real Drivers in this Election

Bookworm posted yesterday about how polarized this election has become. It’s something we’ve all noticed, although most of us haven’t thought about it, or how we got here. Here’s some of it. A Progressive friend is relentlessly pushing “Trump is awful” stories on me. I, a conservative, invariably counter by pointing out that Hillary’s list of […]

Party of the Rich (and Privileged)

An interesting article and the author may well have several points here. Some of what he says, I agree, and as usual, some of it I disagree with. But it’s undoubtedly true that the Democrats have become the party of the rich, especially the newly rich, who got that way on the back of the taxpayers. There […]

The reasons why the globalists are destined to lose

This is quite interesting. I’m not sure if I completely follow his reasoning (I think I do in the main). His supposition comes down to the old one that there is something innate in human beings to seek after liberty, which is I think, beyond rational debate. So, read carefully, it is a bit dense […]

Ripples amongst the Bricks

I’ve been watching this story partly because I’m a proud Boiler (except during football season, Yikes!), and partly because I’m so tired of this swill and the cretins who try it on. And I rather still like Mitch Daniels, Purdue’s President and the former governor of Indiana. What swill, you might ask. A legitimate question […]

Revolutionary Times?

The wins for The Donald and the Bern in NH seems to have confirmed sections of the media in its view that something is happening in our politics, and over my side of the Pond I have seen parallels drawn with Jeremy Corbyn, Syriza and the Front Nationale – it is, it is being said, […]

Virtuous Reality Specs

Heh! This is from England, but I’m very sure you’ll recognize the symptoms and easily be able to substitute the appropriate Americans. Zika, who cares (yet anyway), this is really dangerous! If you think today’s violent porno online culture is corrupting our kids, wait until you see what’s coming next. Games involving extreme violence, murder, […]

Think We Can Say Goodbye To Obama In 2017? Think Again

Well, one year from today, we’ll have a new president, for good or ill. That’s up to us, between now and then. If we do the right thing, perhaps we’ll travel to those “sunlit uplands of peace” that Churchill talked about, if we don’t we’ll likely descend into the chaos, in one way or another. […]

Is Donald Trump is destroying the Republican party?

Embed from Getty Images David Frum published an article in the Spectator this morning. It’s pretty good. […]The day after the State of the Union, I’ll take the train to New York to debate opposite David Miliband at the IQ Squared Series. The motion: ‘The United States should accept 100,000 Syrian refugees.’ When the debate […]

Rewriting History

At some point, where I’ve forgotten, Jess told us that her brother-in-law, a distinguished British historian, had a friend who had been approached after the end of the Soviet Union to help them figure out their history because it had been rewritten so much, that they no longer had a clue. That’s what the left is attempting […]

The Constitution Is Not Incidental

Last Monday Ben Domenech, the publisher and founder of The Federalist published an article of his own that you need to read. It dealt with why there is such a disparity between what are ‘elites’ think, say, and do and what the rest of us know in our bones. In many ways, it sums up […]

Syria, Just War, Unlikely Allies, and a Bit More.

View image | gettyimages.com So tonight Parliament will vote on joining us, the Russians, the French and some others in air attacks in Syria (they already are in Iraq). It’s a contentious issue, as you might imagine. Obama’s throwing away the belated victory that GEN Petraeus gave us left a foul taste in their mouth, […]

What Muslims think: and why do we care

This is definitely worth reading, and thinking about. So much of opinion is driven by polling (or is it, really, maybe polling is driven by something else as well). In any case, this highlights how easy it is to draw false conclusions from polling, especially when viewing filtered results. Do you have sympathy with young […]

Trifecta: Paris

There is simply nothing to add to this. Except perhaps this. And yes, I do see many parallels between Corbyn’s Labor party and a large portion of our own Democratic Party, including its leadership. Corbyn and his Marxist cronies see a terrorist victory as their path to power The Labour party now has as its […]

Whittle, Cruz, and Polls

Bill Whittle on Ted Cruz and media bias. You know that may explain something. Have you noticed, as I have, that in the age of Obama, we conservatives/Republicans (whatever, whichever, and don’t forget right libertarians either) can’t seem to win a national election, but we have something like 75% of the state legislatures, most of […]

Red Storm Rising II ?

There is a lot of stuff going on isn’t there. Is it coordinated? I don’t know, but I don’t think it can be ruled out. Other than raising oil prices, it is kind of hard for me to see the commonality between Russia and Iran. But that I don’t see it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t […]
