A Few Honest Men

I got a chuckle reading this article today. I found it amusing since I had just had a conversation with an attorney over that precise topic a couple of days earlier. The subject being plea deals for prosecution-friendly testimony such as Rick Gates sold for use against Paul Manafort. Since this is the overt and…

The Rusty Toggle

The human toggle between war and peace is rarely well lubricated. Most people suffer enormous dissonance and discontent in the transition. It’s just not easy to relinquish old comforts—or conflicts. By virtue of their more stolid dispositions, conservatives tend to be the most stationary of all. That tendency to remain firm while in flux certainly…

Aid from Tennessee

I’m not against violent racial theft; I’m against illegal violent racial theft! I trust that principled qualifier will confer the respectability required to secure a position at the Heritage Foundation. Therein this writer may opine dryly on the economic impact and deleterious trade disruptions resulting from a mass slaughter of dispossessed white South Africans. Why…

Where Predictability Becomes Intent

The vein of unique insight about the Mollie Tibbetts murder is a thin one. As learned just today, this young mildly attractive white farm girl was extinguished by an illegal alien. As I’ve mentioned frequently, no one ever said they were coming to make a better life for you. And so another American becomes legacy…

The Possom Brain

What is the core function of a healthy adaptive brain? This researcher says its function is not merely to sort the input of our senses, but to create predictive models based on the cumulative weight of that input. This hypothesis strikes me as rather obvious and thus not entirely insightful. Though that’s plainly not an…

Falling Down

Despite the honest and extravagant antipathy on both sides, I don’t place high odds on a civil war second act. Mostly because the right doesn’t have the funding, leadership, and uniformity of opinion to fight it, and the left doesn’t have the need. If the only skirmishes fought in the future are between antifa and…

My Astounding and Beautiful Nimrod

Modern Neo-Bolsheviks tend to give the game away with the first question. What Happens to #MeToo When a Feminist is the Accused? Well if MeToo was propelled by any neutral morality, then nothing different would happen whatsoever. The accused would be guilty, their career would be over, and prosecutors would be preparing their closing statements.…

Veritas Doesn’t Wear Crimson

The delta between a heroin-addicted antifa and a Harvard professor is the breadth of their vocabulary. All other intellectual and emotional contours remain congruent. I believe that characterization is more true than not, which is an appreciably higher standard of fidelity than most on the Harvard faculty would attempt to achieve. Let me give you…

Justice for Sarah Jeong

I’m quite late to the carnival of commentary surrounding Sarah Jeong, the New York Times’ new Koala-faced Korean. Though her race-hatred—and the left’s customary hypocrisy in defending it—were both so dazzling I vaguely wondered if even regular rubes were forced to shield their eyes. Perhaps more than anything her hiring left me wishing the Pusan…

Sherman is Ready

The weight of pretense wears heavy. So heavy, by appearances, that Progtech no longer wishes to bear it. I understand. Free speech, free markets, open exchange of ideas, and every other feel-good food pellet hardly seems necessary to lie about at this point. The left controls the monopolies, and monopolies aren’t in the business of…
