Maintaining the Dream

John Stuart Mill said … the very principle of constitutional government requires it to be assumed, that political power will be abused to promote the particular purposes of the holder; not because it always is so, but because such is the natural tendency of things… And that’s the thing, isn’t it? One of the reasons […]

Why Conservatives Should Start Breaking The Laws That Oppress Us

This carries on something that I have been speaking on at the Watchtower, you can find those articles here, and here, and do read the comments as well, many points are clarified there. This is from The Federalist. Take a look at this sentence from a Daily Mail article reporting on Donald Trump’s “Contract with […]

The Beautiful Lie

Have you seen this, yet? It has about 600,000 views on YouTube. Steven Heyward over at PowerLine comments, “Here you will take in a typically politicized student, at South Africa’s University of Cape Town, arguing that “Science as a whole is a product of western modernity, and the whole thing should be scratched off.” The audience […]

4 Reasons Globalism Won’t Retreat Anytime Soon

Rachel Lu brings a whole load of common sense for us to ponder… Globalism is in full-on retreat, or so I’ve been given to understand. Cosmopolitans, your name is mud. This is the year when conservatives start thumbing their noses at soft borders, interventionist foreign policy, and even free trade. We’re sick of liberals and […]

“You need both a public and a private position”

Well, I probably don’t need to tell you who said that. But yes, it was Hillary Clinton, in one of her high priced confidential speeches, you know, on Wall Street and such. What she said a bit more fully, is this.  She says, “you need both a public and a private position.”  One for public consumption […]

A Basket of Deplorable Videos

Ever wonder what’s stalled the economy and killed the American dream? Clinton’s lie ratchet, yes, yes it is just like this And it’s the same here, only the subject is different. And poor little Hillary just isn’t a match for a man, not even Trump. Hillary Pole dancing, now that’s deplorable!

Transgender Activists and Brophobia

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.” “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.” “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.” Lewis Carroll Indeed.

Trying to Form a More Perfect Union

This morning at the Watchtower, Chalcedon started his post with this: Democracy is boring. It involves discussing things in representative assemblies – aka ‘talking shops’; it means compromises – aka ‘fudging things’; it involves not always getting what you want  – aka ‘selling out’. Do go and read it, I’ll wait for you, and this […]

BLM and The End of PC: Bill Whittle Saturday

We haven’t had much Bill Whittle recently, so let’s have a couple for Saturday. First, how Black Lives Matters kills people. And it’s going to get nothing but worse as the craven administrations of our cities force more and more police departments to ‘Go Fetal’. Anybody who thinks these people give a damn about blacks, or […]

Who are these Elites?

  Mark A. Signorelli had an article in The Federalist the other day, that I think is important for us to think about. As the accumulating crises confronting the Western world stuff our newsfeeds more and more each day, a certain broad narrative about what is happening seems to have gained near-universal acceptance. It says […]

Of Trump and Men

Last Tuesday, Donald Trump delivered a speech in West Bend, Wisconsin. It was described as a speech on Law and Order, which it was, but it was more. It was directed primarily at the black community that the Democrats so take for granted. I’ll include the video, but here are some excerpts. The violence, riots […]

Thoughts On Z-Blog’s “On Being Revolting In The Modern Age”

This has been on my mind, as well. From the Adaptive Curmudgeon. Still here? OK then I’ll start. The Z-Blog posted wise thoughts in On Being Revolting in the Modern Age: “Certainly voting for Trump sends a message, but messages need a sender and a receiver. If the people on the other end refuse to acknowledge the message being […]

A complacent elite is to blame for politics being turned upside down: Now what?

This has been kicking around in my files for a month now, seems like the best-laid plans… In any case, as it grew less timely, I wonder if it hasn’t become important. I rather think it has. Seems to me that what he speaks of here is becoming more true in the US, at least, every […]

Why We Hate You: Guest Post by ISIL

Seems to be a lot of discussion about this. How about we simply do them the courtesy to read what they say. They’re not, after all, hiding it. Shortly following the blessed attack on a sodomite, Crusader nightclub by the mujahid Omar Mateen, American politicians were quick to jump into the spotlight and denounce the […]

In Praise of the Go-Between

I doubt there are any who read here who don’t know that I’m a history buff, although I’m no historian, except maybe an amateur, not overly disciplined one. But part of that is that so many academic historians forget that history isn’t a spreadsheet, it’s a story. It’s a story that has fascinated us from […]

Our attitude towards wealth played a crucial role in Brexit. We need a rethink | Stephen Hawking

Unusually, this is a pretty good piece from The Guardian. Of course, Stephen Hawking is a very brilliant man, and it shows. Money was a key factor in the outcome of the EU referendum. We will now have to learn to collaborate and to share Does money matter? Does wealth make us rich any more? […]

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 […]

Gays, the Left, Terrorism, and a bit on Oil

We’ve been talking most of the week about gays and conservatives, in a political context. You can find those articles here, here, and here. And yes, I am always very grateful when Jessica chimes in on these matters, I’m an old fuddy-duddy sometimes and a younger (and female, not to mention British) perspective helps quite […]

The ‘Gay’ vote

The Democrats, like most leftist political groups, like to think collectively, and in an age of identity of politics we have ‘the black vote’, the ‘hispanic’ vote, the ‘latino’ vote, the ‘women’s vote’ and the ‘gay vote’. You’ll note we don’t have the ‘men’s vote’ – not even the Left is silly enough to imagine […]
