Explaining the Relationship Between Trump and the Political Right — Simply


We view things and people on a continuum that stretches from REALLY bad (-10) to REALLY good (+10), and all points in-between. And THAT is the secret to the relationship between Donald Trump and us on the political Right. In the election of November, 2016, we had the choice between a minus SEVEN and a minus FOUR, and a lot of us — including me — voted for the less awful. It was the right thing to do, but almost none of us liked it. Not one bit. Continue reading Explaining the Relationship Between Trump and the Political Right — Simply

What WAS Putin’s Ideal Outcome in 2016?

What WAS Putin’s Ideal Outcome in 2016?


Look… it’s obvious: Putin did NOT want Trump to win the 2016 Presidential election. Hillary had all but vowed to be “Barack Obama II,” and Obama had already rolled over, like a long obedient lapdog, for all of Putin’s territory grabs, including in Georgia, in the Crimea, as well as everything that Russia was doing in Ukraine. A President Trump would threaten, literally, every single long-term plan of Putin’s, forcing him to re-start from ground zero and re-calculate entirely. Putin did NOT, in any way, shape or form, want to see a President Trump. Continue reading What WAS Putin’s Ideal Outcome in 2016?

Dumb As A Stick


Hillary’s really good at understanding policy. Everyone said so. The problem is: The policies she understands really well are really stupid. And she demonstrates her vast understanding of her really stupid thought, ideas and policy prescriptions really well. In other words: Dumb as a stick. Continue reading Dumb As A Stick

Roy Moore — Facts, Questions, A Modest Proposal, and a Final Very Important Point


It would have been a shock if there had NOT been a parade of unprovable, and unDISprovable, accusations leveled against him, and amplified by the press, as soon as he won the primary for the Alabama Senate seat. Skepticism about the charges against Roy Moore is not only rational and intelligent, it’s the RIGHT state-of mind. I remember thinking, at the news of Moore’s triumph in the Alabama Senate primary: “I wonder what dirty tricks the Democrats will do to get this Senate seat.” Continue reading Roy Moore — Facts, Questions, A Modest Proposal, and a Final Very Important Point

Yet Another Masterful Column from Jonah Goldberg — and Some Discussion


I’m not sure that the Trump Presidency is worse than what, with another Republican, likely would have been just an interregnum between the Obama Presidency and the next horror-show Democrat President. Furthermore, don’t forget: lovable, corrupt, witless old Bernie Sanders made it okay to call oneself a Socialist again. That means that the Democrat Party field for President in upcoming primaries will no longer, for the foreseeable future, be lacking an avowedly Socialist candidate for the Presidency. Great. –>    Continue reading Yet Another Masterful Column from Jonah Goldberg — and Some Discussion

President Trump’s Munich Moment


You read it here first: This is the 21st Century’s, and President Trump’s, Munich Moment. Bill Clinton gave North Korea their nuclear program; George W. Bush backed down when the Norks showed they were developing nuclear weapons, and Barack Obama overtly gave them the blessing to obtain their bomb. Great jobs the appeasers do, eh? Now, Trump has a Munich Moment. What will he do with it? Continue reading President Trump’s Munich Moment
