Turks Blow Minds (and Narratives)

Deceit is often the first casualty when a narrative collapses into its own footprint. With that in mind, consider Turkey’s threat to open the migrant-gates as the Immigration Narrative’s World Trade Center 7. For what seems like ages, or since jews commandeered the media, both sides of the Atlantic have been continually advised of immigration’s…

The Court Finds What It Creates

It’s tempting to seek solace in the sorrow that no one could have had a worse day than Dutch children. Like most liberal offspring, these white-privileged wretches can only watch glumly as their favored siblings–preening and xenophilia–attract all of their parents’ attention. One could argue that spending a child’s ancient inheritance on your own fashionable…

Turkish Delight

Perhaps the most fundamental fissure in Western politics is the question of what specific alchemy occurs when one of the 90% of the world we call “minorities” enters a country of the 10% of the world we call the “majority.” As the answer to this matter is crucial in muscling for moral rank, the skirmish…

The Least Threatening Threat

Politics become much clearer when viewed in context of the personal. Because that’s largely what politics are: interrelationships writ large. So it’s remarkable how effective a more intimate perspective can be in revealing the absurdity of a scene. For example, no one expects you to replace your family with strangers; but everyone expects you to…

Logic Lined up the Street

I won’t be around to learn the results, though I do hope Chinese anthropologists will one day unravel certain mysteries that don’t intrigue contemporary media in the least. One of those mysteries being why the best people come from the worst places. For instance, everyone knows Americans couldn’t produce cobb salads without brown sun-baked cherubs…

A Maelstrom in Middlebury

Let me ax you a question. When someone screams drop your weapon and get on the ground, do you imagine they are expressing a principled opposition to bearing arms and standing erect? No, they invariably haven’t any moral qualms about those things at all. Instead they want their opposition defenseless and prostrate. Weapons aren’t the…

Flight of the Cadgers

I’m frequently disappointed in the quality of reason and rhetoric deployed by the destroyers of the West. It’s hardly unreasonable to say that a people who gave the world planes, cars, computers, modern medicine, and the Internet to complain about it all deserve exceptional sophistry in explaining why they should be replaced by sullen brown…

Out of Many, Many

Trump’s address to Congress last night was something close to a rhetorical masterstroke. In terms of how it skillfully wove his themes and objectives into a soaring and sincere narrative it was probably the best made by a president in my lifetime. And that’s not all that was wrong with it. The speech was also…

Without Alt-Right Bloggers Democracy Dies

Earlier tonight I was reading an article on CNN.com sententiously entitled: Without a free press Democracy dies when I realized there was something familiar about its banality and political correctness. I glanced at the byline and remembered immediately: dizzy Obama State Department drone, Jen Psaki. She (Psaki) has an anti-fan club of (Russian) haters who…

Panic! at the Well

Whether they walk on two legs or four, cattle tend to fear chaos more than the abattoir. But that’s the conclusion, let me start with the preface. Can you help Farmer Joe and his son get a cow out of a well? Come again? That was the initial exchange between Mrs. Porter and me to…
