Kanye’s Conversion

Featured image You likely have heard about Kanye West’s new album, “Jesus Is King.” West apparently has converted to a quite traditional style of Christianity. This is not surprising in itself, as most African-American churches are conservative, but some, like Andrew Walker at National Review, think it may be important: “Kanye West’s Conversion Could Be a Cultural Wrecking Ball.” One of the songs on Jesus Is King is “Closed on Sunday.” It »

The Week in Pictures: Triumph of the Kanye West Edition

Featured image I was all set to declare this week’s gallery to be the “Nikki Haley’s Comet Edition,” but that was before Kanye West’s Traveling Medicine Show appeared at the White House on Thursday. That was some weird stuff, to be sure—the kind of thing Vice President Joe Biden might call a “big f—— deal” before an open microphone in the Oval Office, but that’s different because reasons. It is hard to »

What Kanye can’t do

Featured image Bill Whittle asserts that there is no middle ground on Kanye West: you either love him or loathe him. I think the middle ground may by “don’t know who he is.” In any event, I listened and learned to Bill Whittle explicating the deep meaning of the Kanye kerfuffle in “Kanye West: Racist” (video below). At right around 3:06 Bill reveals a bombshell that would have prompted me to do »

The Week in Pictures: Yes, We Kanye Edition

Featured image Liberals really have become as twitchy as an over-caffeinated teenage meth head. First, Rosanne Barr revives her old sitcom with a mildly pro-Trump flavor, getting unheard of ratings for a classic format sitcom, and the cultural left goes nuts. Then this week Kanye West rapped the arthritic synapses of the left further with some Trump bromance tweets. Kanye 2024! Yes we Kanye! Maybe someone needs to do a reality TV »

Who Is Actually Tolerant?

Featured image Power Line’s favorite male comic, David Deeble (who one of these days we’re going to pair with Ammo Grrrl in a live event), has a very succinct explanation of the culture war and the issue of “tolerance” (just 28 seconds): Like all good comedy and satire, it depends on some connection with reality.* Liberals talk endlessly about “tolerance” and “inclusiveness,” but it is increasingly clear that leftists are the most »

A$AP Rocky found guilty but isn’t sentenced to jail time (which he wouldn’t have served)

Featured image I wrote here about the assault case against rapper A$AP Rocky, who, while in Stockholm, beat up an immigrant to Sweden for the sin of following him around and disobeying instructions by the rapper’s body guard not to do so. Swedish authorities arrested Rocky and two members of his crew and held them in custody pending trial, pursuant to Swedish law. At the urging of Kanye West and his Kardashian »

Trump’s A$AP Rocky pander

Featured image President Trump stuck a blow against criminal justice when he backed, and thereby caused to be enacted, a “criminal justice reform” bill mandating the early release of many thousands of federal felons (including violent felons), plus shorter sentences for future federal felons. Given sky-high recidivism rates, the measure is certain to generate significantly more crime than would otherwise have been committed. Trump’s decision to back legislation that makes Americans less »

Lethal Weapon 5

Featured image Republicans celebrated the passage of the jailbreak legislation known as First Step with an event at a trendy restaurant in Washington. Naturally. What’s the use of passing feel-good, virtue-signaling bipartisan legislation unless you have a great party afterwards? Politico reports that Van Jones introduced Jared Kushner, the man of the hour. Jones, you may remember, was too leftist even for the Obama administration. But he’s not too leftist for Kushner. »

Blexit

Featured image I have returned from Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit, the first part of which I wrote about here, including our visit to the White House. A highlight of the second half of the event was the announcement of “Blexit,” a new project spearheaded by Candace Owens. What is Blexit? BLEXIT is a frequency for those who have released themselves from the political orthodoxy. It is a rebellion led »

Crazy Days [Updated]

Featured image As the election approaches, it seems that everything is spinning out of control. Here is a partial selection from the last day or two. It came out that pink tutu-clad leftist Kyrsten Sinema, the Democrats’ nominee for the Senate from Arizona, once urged Texans to “stop your state from becoming Arizona” because Arizonans are “crazy.” BREAKING: LEAKED VIDEO: in a 2011 speech in TX, Democratic Senate candidate @kyrstensinema mocks Arizonans »

Thoughts from the ammo line

Featured image Ammo Grrrll has a few FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONS: She writes: My dear friend Angela is one of the best and most sensitive conversationalists I have ever known. She is a top-notch saleswoman who has mastered the art of talking to customers. Most of us aren’t very good at even faking interest in what the other person is saying. As witty, cynical essayist, Fran Liebowitz, once said: There’s no such thing as »

Is Trump a Shoo-In In 2020? [with comment by Paul]

Featured image I know, it’s way too early to speculate about the next presidential cycle, especially given our president’s age. We don’t even know, at this point, whether he will seek re-election. But at Townhall, Kevin McCullough is undeterred. He offers five reasons why Trump will sweep to re-election in 2020, carrying 40 states. McCullough’s reasons are cogent: foreign policy dominance, stronger armed forces yielding a safer world, the strongest hold on »

Thoughts from the ammo line

Featured image Ammo Grrrll reconsiders A LUNATIC IN THE LIFT. She writes: By now, as frequently happens with a weekly column, this is pretty old news. But it’s in my wheelhouse, so I thought I would weigh in. Besides, I’m still mad. Regular readers may think they have seen me mad before, but that was just warm-up. The Safe Space Dwellers want to talk about “triggers”? Consider me triggered. As my hero »

The Rebellion Spreads

Featured image This righteous Twitter rant was retweeted by Candace Owens. I have no idea who this guy is, but he endorses Kanye West’s call for blacks to think for themselves. He is wearing a “MAGA” hat and he understands where the real genocide is taking place. And while he has problems, he is sane enough to realize that being a slave is not one of them. Warning: Really, really bad language. »

Candace Owens unexpurgated

Featured image Candace Owens came to town on Tuesday to speak before a packed audience in the ballroom of the Marriott City Center in downtown Minneapolis. The event was sponsored by the Center of the American Experiment, the conservative Minnesota think tank of which John is the president. The center writes: “We loved the way she thinks way before Kanye West, and we certainly love her more after Candace Owens inspired a »

A Day With Candace Owens

Featured image In the last two weeks, Candace Owens has exploded onto the political scene. Beginning with Kanye West’s famous tweet, her life has been a whirlwind of television and radio appearances and speeches. The Left is attacking her viciously, while some on the right view her as a potential savior. Candace spent yesterday in Minnesota. As Scott described here, she spoke at a lunch forum for Center of the American Experiment, »

The Week in Pictures: Cultural Appropriation Edition

Featured image I was going to wish everyone a happy Cinco de Mayo today, but I am told that is not allowed because it is a “cultural appropriation.” So I guess I can’t have a breakfast burrito this morning? How about if I order in Esperanto? Also, prom dresses from China are prohibited. But what about Hillary’s pantsuits, clearly appropriated from North Korea? And what about May Day? How can we celebrate »
