Super Bowl Revisited

Featured image Scott and Paul have already written about last night’s classic, and Steve has added a picture gallery. I just want to comment on a couple of aspects of the evening. First, the ads. I didn’t pay attention to most of them. Half the time, I can’t figure out what is being advertised, at least not until the end. And there are quite a few ads that I can tell feature »

What Part Of “You Lost” Don’t Liberals Understand?

Featured image The behavior of many liberals since Donald Trump’s election has been appalling–not to mention, in some cases, criminal. It is also, in some respects, puzzling. A case in point was a town meeting conducted last night by Congressman Tom McClintock in Roseville, California. Liberal activists attended the meeting and behaved so boorishly and so threateningly that the Congressman had to be escorted from the hall by armed policemen. Another disgusting »

Anti-Free Speech Riot at NYU: Crazier Than Berkeley?

Featured image On Thursday evening, Gavin McInnes, a comic, commentator and co-founder of Vice Media, attempted to give a speech at New York University, at the invitation of the NYU Republican group. A crowd of anti-free speech rioters battled police officers and ultimately succeeded in shutting down McInnes’s speech. Steve Sailer comments: Unlike the Berkeley Police Department with Milo, the New York Police Department made sure Gavin McInness could actually deliver at »

A Victim of the Berkeley Violence Speaks

Featured image One of the people assaulted by leftists at Berkeley yesterday emailed this account to a friend, who forwarded it to me. My friend describes his correspondent as a moderate Republican who voted for Hillary Clinton: I can’t say I agree with everything Milo says and,​ as most of you know, I ​am ​NOT​ a Trump supporter at all​, but I totally agree with Milo’s right to speak on campuses. I’m »

Do American Jews believe in God?

Featured image The answer, it appears, is: sort of. According to newsletter put out by our congregation, survey data shows that 34 percent of American Jews are certain that God exists. Another 38 percent think He does, but are less than certain. 23 percent don’t believe in God, and 5 percent don’t know. Conservative Jews (in the religious, not the political, sense) have more faith. 41 percent are certain God exists; 46 »

Liberals Embrace Violence

Featured image Many have long suspected that if you scratch an American liberal, you will find a budding fascist. I mean that in the literal sense, not as a general epithet. More and more, liberals are openly embracing violence as a path to power. Not just the nuts, either: their recently-defeated vice-presidential nominee, Tim Kaine, has called on his fellow liberals to become street fighting men. Our friends at Grabien have assembled »

Progressives Say: Boycott the World!

Featured image #GrabYourWallet has gotten quite a bit of publicity as the leading organizer of progressive boycotts against companies that are somehow associated with Donald Trump. The boycott effort is doomed to fail, for a couple of reasons: first, social justice warriors are a small percentage of the population; second, social justice warriors who are willing to change their shopping habits are an infinitesimal percentage of the population. So this is mostly »

It’s Tough When Your Base Is Crazy

Featured image Sometimes you wonder why Democratic politicians are so crazed. But then you see stories like this that make it clear: Protesters shouted down Rhode Island Democratic U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse during a community event as they protested his vote in favor of President Donald Trump’s nominee for CIA director and pushed him to vote against other nominees. A video of Sunday’s event posted by the group Resist Hate RI shows »

Civil War on the Left, Part 36

Featured image How good is President Trump? He not only makes Chuck Schumer cry, but he also has the left spitting mad at Schumer: Chuck Schumer under fire from left-wing activists Left-wing activists have found a collateral target in their efforts to resist President Trump — powerful Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer. Enraged that the Senate Minority Leader has voted in favor of several cabinet nominees, a coalition of political, environmental and anti-poverty organizations »

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 »
