Memo to Trump: Stop Disavowing!

Featured image Today Donald Trump held an on-the-record meeting with the New York Times. Despite the meeting being of record, no transcript has been released. Instead, we know about what transpired through tweets by various Times reporters–which, shockingly, are spun in an anti-Trump direction. The Associated Press headlines: “Trump again disavows alt-right, white supremacists.” No doubt much else was discussed, but this is what millions of newspaper readers will see: an association »

Desperate Democrats Turn to Death Threats

Featured image Democrats are having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that they lost the presidential election. Now they are threatening to kill Republican electors unless they switch allegiance and vote for Hillary Clinton when the electoral college meets on December 19. The Detroit News reports: Trump’s opponents have deluged [Michael] Banerian and other GOP electors with pleas and nasty emails to reverse course and cast their ballots for »


Featured image This report comes to us via Rockslide. We cannot vouch for its accuracy: The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week. The Republican presidential campaign is prompting an exodus among left-leaning Americans who fear they’ll soon be required to hunt, pray, pay taxes, and live according to the Constitution. Canadian border residents say it’s not uncommon to see dozens of »

Liberals Having Second Thoughts?

Featured image Yes, I know, for liberals to have any second thoughts requires that they had some first thoughts. (Rim shot!) There are a few liberal thought leaders, like Mark Lilla and Damon Linker, who are honestly confronting the destructive dead-end of the identity politics that is now the core desideratum of the Democratic Party. But there is a déjà vu all over again quality to some of these ruminations. Take, for »

Are All Liberals Rude and Arrogant?

Featured image Perhaps not, but it often seems that way. Vice President-Elect Mike Pence is in New York, working with Donald Trump on staffing their new administration. He took last night off to see the popular Broadway musical “Hamilton.” When he and his family took their seats, some in the crowd booed–although, to be fair, it sounds to me as though more applauded: The real outrage came at the end. As Pence »

Promises, Promises

Featured image When a Republican wins the presidency, it is always fun to ridicule the celebrities who vowed to leave the country should such a horror take place. To my recollection, not one has ever followed through on such a threat (or promise, depending on how you look at it). This year is no exception. Michael Ramirez captures my sentiments exactly. Click to enlarge: Celebrities may have played a larger than usual »

Love Trumps Hate!

Featured image Liberals see Donald Trump supporters as dark, hateful, potentially dangerous. Yet somehow, the violence–real and symbolic–is all on the other side. This story comes from San Antonio: “2 students, teacher reprimanded for Trump assassination skit.” Two 10th-grade students at a San Antonio high school and their teacher have been reprimanded for the performance of a skit portraying the assassination of President-elect Donald Trump. The San Antonio Express-News reports the skit, »

Drunk Driver Blames…Donald Trump

Featured image The response to Donald Trump’s election by disappointed Democrats has included riots, assaults, play-doh sessions and cry-ins, among other irrational outpourings. Here in Minnesota, one voter responded in a manner that–while we certainly can’t recommend it–made a little more sense: Lino Lakes police: Driver at .33 BAC blames crash on anger over Trump’s victory. A day after Americans voted for president, an extremely drunken motorist rammed into two vehicles stopped »

Democrats: Vicious, Violent, Anti-Democratic

Featured image Across the country, Democrats disappointed at losing the presidential election are rioting, burning American flags, throwing Molotov cocktails at police officers, hurling bricks through windows, setting fires in urban streets, and attacking random passers-by. We wrote about the riots and posted photos here. Much more could be added in the three days that have gone by since that post. The photos could be multiplied endlessly. This rioter had a particularly »

Freakout In Minneapolis

Featured image The Mayor of Minneapolis is far-left Betsy Hodges. Yesterday she posted this on the Facebook page that she uses for public communications, which is largely a cheering section for Hillary Clinton: To those who awoke afraid and more vulnerable to a President who has pledged to attack you: I stand with you, your city stands with you, and we will find a way through. To my Muslim, Mexican, immigrant, indigenous, »

Celebrity Departure Freakout

Featured image Numerous celebrities have vowed to leave the U.S. if Trump were elected. Sadly, they all will most likely disappoint us once again. But the street artist Sabo is making it easy for them with these real estate ad benches, scattered around southern California. Click to enlarge. Cher: Lena Dunham. Note the URL: More here. »

The Great Liberal Freakout

Featured image The Great Liberal Freakout is under way, as we’ve noted below. Here’s my haul. The head of the Joint Center for Political Studies, which the Washington Post describes as a “respected liberal think tank,” reacted to Trump’s landslide thus: “When you consider that in the climate we’re in—rising violence, the Ku Klux Klan—it is exceedingly frightening.” Castro, still with us, said right before the election: “We sometimes have the feeling that »

More Fun at Krugman’s Expense

Featured image It’s tough to be the Krugster when things aren’t going your way. Shortly after midnight last night, Krugman wrote this: It really does now look like President Donald J. Trump, and markets are plunging. When might we expect them to recover? Frankly, I find it hard to care much, even though this is my specialty. The disaster for America and the world has so many aspects that the economic ramifications »

Krugman Freaks Out, Vows to Keep Fighting

Featured image There is much to savor this morning, including the hysteria that is sweeping across the Left. We see it in ways large and small. At one of our local colleges, a class was canceled because the professor was crying too hard to teach. “I don’t feel safe here,” she said. The storm troopers were due any minute, apparently. On a slightly larger (if rapidly fading) stage, Paul Krugman comforts the »

Rolling Stone Loses

Featured image A jury in Virginia has found Rolling Stone magazine and its reporter Sabrina Erdely liable for defamation in connection with Erdely’s now-refuted story of a gang rape at the University of Virginia. The plaintiff in the case is university dean Nicole Eramo, who was portrayed as callous in Erdely’s article. The verdict would have been more satisfying if it had been on behalf of the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity and »

Top Dem donor compares black Republicans to Nazi collaborators

Featured image The Democrats are worried, and justifiably so, that African-American voters aren’t supporting Hillary Clinton and other Dems to same extent that they backed Barack Obama. Actually, the Democrats are frantic about this. Thus, Benjamin Barber, a top Democratic donor has been caught on camera attacking non-compliant African-Americans during a fundraiser. The video comes via Project Veritas Action. Barber had this to say: Have you heard of the Sonderkommandos? Jewish guards »

Who’s Deplorable?

Featured image One of the things that emerges clearly from the Wikileaks dump of John Podesta’s email chain, as noted here previously, is the utter contempt liberals have for “everyday Americans,” and their cherished institutions like the Catholic Church. The left has no problem discussing how they want to force the Catholic Church to change so as to conform to the current leftist party line. But this Podesta email, posted right after »
