Chronicles of the Crazy Time (7)

Featured image I’m actually pretty busy at the moment, even though school is over for the summer, so I’m having trouble keeping up with the tsunami of craziness washing over the land. But I’ll try to continue this chronicle of the most egregious and significant events. • Who would have thought that sense and resolve against statue-toppling repudiation would come from the president of France, Emmanuel Macron. The Daily Wire reports: “We »

What if they held an anti-Trump women’s march and only 10,000 came?

Featured image That’s what might be in store on Saturday when the fourth annual Women’s March takes place in Washington, D.C.. The Washington Post says that only about 4,500 women have indicated on Facebook that they will attend. The organizers say they expect 10,000 participants. It wasn’t always like this. The day after President Trump’s inauguration, hundreds of thousands marched in protest in Washington (an event I covered for Power Line). Taking »

Resistance (At All Costs): Don’t resist it

Visit Portland, Stay for the Riots

Featured image This is wonderful. Only 1:21 long, but you’ll want to watch it five times, and send to all your friends. Especially your Oregonian friends. (Yes, I know, the narrator badly mispronounces “Willamette”—as in the river, but that’s not as bad as the time back when I was a student in DC, and stumbled into a congressman in the Capitol building who seemingly just emerged from a hearing on the effects »

Against XX [Updated]

Featured image If you sense a synthetic quality to the outrage greeting the nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court by President Trump, you aren’t mistaken. The Women’s March had its statement decrying the apocalypse to be wrought by the nominee before he (or she) was named yesterday. Once the announcement was made, the blank name was to be filled in by the Women’s March functionary. In the event, the functionary »

Authorities finally stop resistance shut-down of ICE facility

Featured image I haven’t seen much coverage of this story, perhaps because the mainstream media is once again covering, as best it can within reason, for the anti-Trump resistance. Protesters organized by the Democratic Socialists of America shut down operations at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Portland, Oregon. They did so by taking over part of the grounds of the facility on June 17, in protest of administration policy »
