How to Drive a Liberal Completely Insane

Featured image I distinctly recall, during the George W. Bush years, reading and overhearing liberals express a strange new respect for previous Republican presidents like George H.W. Bush and Reagan, who they now said towered head and shoulders above the cretinous, antedulivian, swaggering Texan that the GOP had forced upon the nation. But now that Donald Trump is president, guess what? Yup—strange new respect from liberals for George W. Bush, as reported »

At the women’s protest march

Featured image I turned down opportunities to attend the Trump inauguration. I’m glad Trump won, but not ready to celebrate the guy. Plus, I’ve always found these events dull. Protest marches, on the other hand, can be interesting. I decided to attend today’s women’s protest in Washington, D.C. The first order of business was to find a place to check my privilege, presumably in exchange for a ticket with a number so »

How Low Can Liberals Go?

Featured image I doubt that they have hit bottom yet, but liberals can’t get much lower than smearing Donald Trump’s ten-year-old son, Barron. Katie Rich apparently is a writer for Saturday Night Live. I haven’t seen that show since the 1970s, but people say it’s no longer funny. If Ms. Rich is any indication, I can believe that is true. This is what she had to say on Twitter about ten-year-old Barron: »

California Democrats Advocate Criminal Resistance to Trump

Featured image The New York Times reports on bold talk among California Democrats about resisting the Trump administration, via criminal activity if necessary: The state lieutenant governor, Gavin Newsom, who is running for governor, said California could use its stringent environmental protection law to block Mr. Trump from building a wall along the Mexican border. Apparently the Lieutenant Governor is unfamiliar with the Supremacy Clause. In Sacramento, Gov. Jerry Brown and lawmakers »

Democratic Party Bullies Try to Scuttle Trump’s Inauguration

Featured image This morning on Meet the Press, Democratic Party hack John Lewis said that he will not attend Donald Trump’s inauguration because Trump is “not a legitimate president.” Shocking though it may be, this anti-democratic rhetoric is common in the Democratic Party, and many have taken it to an even lower level. Never before in our history has one party been so petty as to try to interfere with the traditional »

Trump Bestrides the Liberals’ World Like a Colossus

Featured image As we and others have documented countless times, the liberal world has gone bonkers over Donald Trump. It is an odd thing: Trump isn’t even a conservative, or wasn’t until recently. Yet liberals have gone nuts over his ascendancy in a way that is unprecedented. They make fools of themselves hour by hour, and, weirdly, don’t seem to notice. The current issue of Vanity Fair, a celebrity-oriented Democratic Party magazine, »

Time For Heads to Roll at the CIA

Featured image Between the time I went to bed last night and when I got home from work today, the fake news story about the purported Russian dossier on Donald Trump was born, flowered and died. At this juncture, I think only one point is worth making. The anonymously-sourced memos that are the basis for the report have been kicking around for months. Because they lacked any credibility, no respectable news source–not »

Why Are Liberals Such Racists?

Featured image As a conservative, I essentially never encounter racism. I don’t have any racist friends or acquaintances. The issue never comes up. Liberals, on the other hand, tell us that they are swimming in a sea of racism. I don’t know, they might be right. Maybe in their liberal world, racism is still an issue. A case in point: a “reporter” for MTV named Ira Madison III was looking for a »

To the FBI, CIA and NSA: Where Were You When We Needed You? [Updated]

Featured image While failing utterly to provide evidence (let alone persuasive evidence) that Russia intruded into the DNC’s email system, today’s intelligence report is not without interest. The most notable sections of the report are those that tie Russia’s government to a series of left-wing propaganda campaigns in the U.S. No member of the Occupy movement, for instance, can read the report without squirming. If true, it vindicates what we conservatives have »

Vicious Hate Crime In Chicago Whitewashed By Press [Updated]

Featured image This is the Associated Press’s innocuous report on a crime that occurred in Chicago on Tuesday, in its entirety: Chicago police say they are investigating a video circulating on social media that shows several people beating a man at a residence. Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said at a news conference Wednesday that four suspects are in custody. Formal charges have not been filed. Johnson says the victim, who has “mental »

Liberals Shocked to Discover Virtues of Limited Government

Featured image It’s always cute when liberals re-discover the virtue of constitutionally limited government. Strange, though, that it only seems to happen when there’s a Republican president. The correlation here comes in at the statistically significant .95 level, though anyone versed in situational ethics needn’t consult a statistician to recognize the phenomenon or understand its cause. The latest case in point is an article in the current issue of the lefty journal »

Conservatives Outnumber Liberals, But Gap Narrows

Featured image Gallup has released its annual poll on conservative/liberal/moderate self-identification. It finds that U.S. adults are now 36% conservative, 34% moderate, and 25% liberal. This is consistent with a broad body of polling that shows conservatives have outnumbered liberals by as much as two to one in recent decades. But liberals are gaining. This Gallup graph covers the period from 1992 to the present: Conservative identification has remained essentially steady, but »

Why the Left Secretly Loves Trump

Featured image Forget all the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the left. That’s just for show. Remember that the left was never very enthusiastic about Hillary Clinton, and are not sorry to have seen her lose. Trump’s victory, however, provides the left with something much more important that patronage in Washington DC: it provides them with the supposed evidence to bolster their essential hatred and contempt for America, and endless opportunities »

‘Tis the Season To Be Crazy

Featured image Are all liberals crazy? Probably not, but it seems that way these days. Pretty much every post I write is about liberals behaving not just badly, but bizarrely. Perhaps that is good, if, like me, you want leftism to be discredited forever. But the process is painful. There is a garden store in Minnesota called Gertens. Its hallmark is that it is really, really big. This time of year, the »

Urban Insanity In Minneapolis

Featured image The City of Minneapolis’s far-left city council is thinking about starting a bank. Seriously. Is there a shortage of banks in the Twin Cities? No. Does anyone in city government know anything about running a bank? No. Lee Schafer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune explains: The city of Minneapolis is looking into the “possibility” of launching a city-owned bank. But, of course, it’s possible. So is opening a pet shop. »

Fake News About Sarah Palin

Featured image The Associated Press fact checker exposes some fake news about Sarah Palin that was propagated on Facebook: A story claiming former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called for boycotting the Mall of America in Minnesota over its black Santa Claus is false. The story, posted by Newslo [Ed.: Never heard of it.] and some affiliated websites, claims Palin told the Star Tribune of Minneapolis, “Santa was always white in the Bible.” »

Liberals to Poor Third World Children: Drop Dead

Featured image Nature magazine has a terrific feature in its current issue about the great Swedish demographer Hans Rosling, who we have discussed here on Power Line in the past. Late in the long piece appears this astounding sentence: Melinda Gates says that after a drink or two, people often tell her that they think the Gates Foundation may be contributing to overpopulation and environmental collapse by saving children’s lives with interventions »
