Gove on Trump

So Donald Trump gave an interview the other day, to Michael Gove and Kai Diekmann of Bild. Gove’s impressions were written up in the £ Times, it’s pretty interesting. So let’s look at some of it. During the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump had an insult for every rival. Marco Rubio was “little Marco” […]

Cultural Blasphemy ? More Like Americanism

Ace quoted this piece the other day and called it very good. I agree. Yes, in Newsweek, and also yes, its liberal bias is pretty obvious. But you know we all filter things through our experiences and thus are biased. No less me than Michael Wolf. But things do work better when we talk to […]

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. […]

Obama’s Legacy Of Deceit

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 […]

Dear Hollywood,…signed America

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 […]

Reality is Real

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, […]

Irrelevant Trump Wingeing, and Some on the Free Market.

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, […]

Some Thoughts on the Return of European Anti-Americanism

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, […]

Happy New Years Day!

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 new Trump Tower?

I’m still buried under a mountain of stuff, but shoveling as fast as I can to clean up a field in Louisiana (if you understand that joke, we share a taste in movies). But this is rather important. It was a feckless and reckless move on the part of Obama, by now that should surprise no […]

Such a Conservative Cabinet?

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 […]

Time for Liberation

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 […]

Ordinary Joes

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 […]

Friday Roundup

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 […]

The hidden costs of our bloated tax code

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 […]

Why Are Leftists Such Pansies? |

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 […]

Castro, and the Reaction

Mom really did say that if you don’t have anything good to say about someone, especially a dead someone, then say nothing. It’s a good rule, helping avoid social friction and silly irritations. But I’m not sure that it really holds for public discourse on the death of public enemies. I can’t really imagine Winston Churchill, […]

Merkel Backs Crackdown on Free Speech On Social Media Sites

One of the things I have noticed in the last few months, as a percentage, people other than Americans and British (especially Niederlanders) have increased rather dramatically. That pleases me, and I hope they are finding what they want. Since, as far as I know, none of them have commented, I just assume that they […]
