The Non-Debate, Debate

Not that we watched it all that much, we mainly went through clips post-mortem, but it pretty much turned out to be exactly what we’d expected it to be. A prolonged shooting gallery with the “moderators” as the shooters. Only two things (OK, so three, it was fun watching ¡Yeb’s! new-found confidence, safe in the

Whose Side Are They On, Anyway?

No matter, according to Occam’s Razor, they’re probably just stupid. We talked about yesterday how FOX walked straight into Trump’s trap, and events since then have done nothing to dissuade us of that. As we said yesterday, all they had to do in response to Trump’s initial suggestion that Kelly not be on the panel

And Now, for Something Completely Different…

Football? Listen, we don’t think we need to restate just exactly how we feel about ¡Ruuuuubio!, but funny’s funny, and this shit is funny, right there (h/t Protein Wisdom): Will it make us vote for the lying, amnesty-loving hack? Hardly. But it DID make us laugh, and laughter’s a good thing, so thank you for

FOX Walks Into a Trap (UPDATED)

When Trump stated that Megyn Kelly shouldn’t be a moderator at the debate because of her bias (real or alleged), our Imperial Brain immediately started wondering what he was up to now. Sadly, a lot of other people, some of them very intelligent, focused instead on saying that he was just being a whiny little

Oh, But It Really Is Quite Simple, Quisling Party

We’re beginning to see quite a few articles popping up all over the ‘Nets written by terribly, terribly concerned “conservatives” arguing that this whole “civil war” on the right is really so unseemly and can’t we all just get along? Not to mention that almost every single one of those articles make a big whoop

Dog Bites Man…

Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett painted a dark picture of Jewish life in Europe on Sunday, telling the cabinet anti-Semitism on the Continent has reached an “unprecedented” level. The minister briefs the government on such trends every year immediately prior to International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which falls on Wednesday, January 27. Jewish emigration from Western

If There’s Anything We DON’T Need More Of…

We just mentioned that there has to be better material than silly quotes out of context. Case in point: “I think the establishment actually is against me but really coming on line because they see me as opposed to Cruz, who is a nasty guy who can’t get along with anybody,” Trump said in an

And Now, A Publick Service Announcement

…about how not to make yourself look silly, and how it’s never a good idea, even if you believe it’s in a good cause. We’re sure everybody is aware of Trump’s “shooting somebody on 5th avenue” comment by now, and how it’s being reported. Here’s the FULL quote. Not the doctored one:” You know what

They Really Don’t Teach ANYTHING in College Anymore, Do They?

What do campus activists SJW Prozis want? One accused student told Buzzfeed what many others have felt: That activists and administrators want them to die. “At first I thought they didn’t want me to participate in campus activities. Then I thought they didn’t want me to graduate,” the student said. “Now they don’t want me

Ain’t Gonna Take it Anymore

Ace says it perfectly: But my priority is reforming the GOP into an institution which actually serves voters and not just the Chamber of Commerce and a dozen deep-pocketed, socially-liberal mega-donors, but a party that, when working class people tell them Disney is abusing the H-1B program to hire foreign workers and fire American ones,

So, At This Point, What Difference Do They Make?

Much apropos our last post, the inimitable Mark Steyn utters the following: In contrast to the ebb and flow of eternally shifting multiparty systems, America has a rigid, inflexible two-party choice: One party is supposed to be the party of big government, the other the party of small government. When the Big Government Party is

Charge of the Light Brigade

By now everybody’s heard of the National Review’s “Against Trump” issue, in which they, as one, step up to distance themselves from that horrid “vulgarian”, Donald Trump, citing his lack of core, orthodox conservative principles (questioning if he has any at all) and loudly proclaim, suddenly rediscovering one of their founder’s most famous sayings, that

You Keep that Up, Frau Merkel, You’re Going to be First Up Against the Wall

Heartbreaking video made by a 16-year-old German girl (it’s in German, obviously, but comes with a transcript). This child, this innocent child victim of Frau Merkel’s insane multi-culti national suicide by decree, was moved to make this video because she, quite rightfully so, had come to realize that she was no longer safe in her

And Now, From the Other Side of the Hill

Can we please dispense with the outrage, OUTRAGE at the un-Americanism of the following Trumpisms?: Banning mooselimb immigration until we can figure out what the fuck is going on and how to filter the good ones from the bad ones? For examples of what happens when you don’t do that, see “Europe, all of it.”

Surprise! Big Companies Contribute Money According to Self-Interest!

Film at eleven. The Wall Street mega-bank Goldman Sachs is a top donor to the 2016 presidential campaigns of establishment candidates Hillary Clinton, Sen. Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush. Knock us over with a feather! Giant corporation donates money to candidates likely to return the favor if they win. Why, oh why don’t they donate
