The Thing’s Lament

While one could cite many worthy candidates, there is probably no living entity more malevolent than George Soros. At an age when most men are staring at squirrels, he continues to toil 666 minutes a day toward the eradication of Europe and her people. If there is any individual consciousness striving toward this end with…

Out to Pasture

Columnist Thomas Sowell recently announced his retirement at 86. I haven’t heard anyone reference his remarks in a long time, though at one point he was considered a movement luminary. This acclaim largely a function of his being a black man capable of articulating conservative principles without a zero copula or invariant be. In this…

Merry Christmas

Anticipation was as heavy as the snowflakes. Each on its own incorrigibly lethargic path to earth. Waiting outside in the gentle dusk I lay supine smiling into the silent deluge. Finally, the rest of a tardy family tumbled out of the house wrapped in hats, gloves, and gifts. A minute later the car was crunching…

The Audacity of Dopes

There’s a sense of propriety in the European soul. Obviously not in all Europeans, but a governor of decorum exists in majorities so vast that the contours of their societies are always bound by it. People generally take only what they pay for, and ask only for what they are due. Which means whites largely…

Better Safe Than Sowwy

We’ve long asserted that if Western Civilization’s maladaptive liberal arc is maintained, that only Chinese museums will be left to archive the story of its decay. If pieces like this are actually true, and not hilarious Internet satire, I am increasingly confident the records of our folly will find a secure repository in the Far…

A Red Christmas

It was a hectic day of Christmas shopping in Berlin. As of this writing, 12 people have been killed by a Vehicle of Peace, one Polish truck driver was murdered in his seat, 50+ other pedestrians are gravely wounded, and the architect of this holiday cheer primly plots her reelection. Of course there was a…

Rogue Zero

It’s fascinating how malleable the human mind can be. If you embed hooks deep enough in their psyche, people can be led around like bulls with a nose ring. I’ve consumed a modest allocation of WordPress’ free hosting in describing the ‘isms that can cause otherwise contemplative observers to sing like showgirls at their invocation.…

The National Gerrymander

A few years ago while having dinner in Paris, my wife and I struck up a conversation with another couple at an adjacent table. That’s not something we tend to do at home, though the proximity of Parisian dinning creates its own social dynamics. It took a couple of meals to come to terms with…

You’ll Know What I Don’t Mean the Moment I Say It

The word statement is a reliable antonym of agenda. What people say is often completely different than what they mean. As statements ascend the bullshit strata from personal to official, that tendency becomes axiom. Political actors and media organs issue statements strictly to advance an agenda, not explain or reveal a truth. Most people would…

Fake Russians and Real News

Every PR combatant wages war with his own arsenal of memes. That the right’s tend to be amusing while the left’s are lugubrious is mostly a function of the personalities each movement attracts. Two of those memes now churning up the liberal silt are Russian Hacking and Fake News. As to the former, dullard Republicans…
