The Week in Pictures: Impeachment Edition

Featured image Impeachment is finally here! Fan service for The Resistance, which is nearly as big a fantasy as a certain movie coming out shortly that features a thinly-disguised equivalent. Except that Obi Wan Trump is the person who actually wields The Force. And his padawan, Boris Johnson. Not even St. Greta of Thunberg, playing the Daisy Ridley role on the nightly network news version, can stand up to Trump. Anyone recall »

The Week in Pictures: Narwhal Tusk Edition

Featured image As we learned last week, the ever resourceful British deployed a narwhal whale tusk to dispatch a terrorist, and now I want one too! But I suspect before long, Michael Bloomberg and other Democrats will be calling for “common sense” narwhal tusk control, and you can’t really blame them, can you? Just imagine what Joe Biden would have done if he’d had one handy in Iowa this week. No doubt »

The Week in Pictures: Tryptophan Hangover Edition

Featured image If you’re still suffering a post-Thanksgiving food coma, take heart. Tryptophan is going to be banned by the FDA—an indirect way of outlawing turkeys, and Thanksgiving itself, since naturally Thanksgiving is a hatefest according to the left. On the other hand, these extreme measures won’t be able to disguise the massive turkeys running the Democratic Party at the moment. Talk about flightless birds!     Headlines of the week: And »

Thanksgiving Day in Pictures: Special Edition

Featured image The turkey and leftovers will be cold or eaten by Saturday, so why not a special edition? And the Cowboys better win today or Jerry Jones will declare his head coach to be a turkey and won’t bother with a pardon. And finally. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Natural Gas Edition

Featured image When you hear the phrase, “investigation into ties with a natural gas producer,” are we talking about Hunter Biden and Burisma, or are we talking about Rep. Eric Swalwell on MSNBC? It is hard to tell them apart. Democrats and their media toadies really ought to be more careful about throwing around the term “bombshell” in connection with their Ahab-like “investigation.”   Headlines of the week: And finally. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Hearsay Edition

Featured image Hey, have you heard that Jeffery Epstein didn’t kill himself? I hear that too. That ought to be good enough to convict someone. Hillary maybe. If hearsay and memes are good enough to impeach the president, why not just go with it and solve the Epstein killing.   Headlines of the week: And finally. . . »

A Tale of Two Photos

Featured image It is tempting to do a Mid-Week in Pictures special offering today because I have a lot of great material accumulating in my Week in Pictures folder for this Saturday—way more than I will be able to use already. But I don’t want to overdo it. Instead, herewith a post on just two pictures, because each has a good story. First up: As it happens, I once got the opportunity, »

The Week in Pictures: Epstein Meme Edition

Featured image I hear the Centers for Disease Control is opening a case file on the sudden onset of Jeffery Epstein “suicide” memes, which appear to be spreading faster than the clap in a 19th century seaside whore house (which whorehouses should not be confused with either Congress, the Clinton Foundation, or Jeffrey Epstein’s private island, though this confusion is quite understandable). I don’t think this is going away any time soon. »

The Week in Pictures: Media Blowout Edition

Featured image It is hard to think of a week more embarrassing to the legacy news media that this week. Never mind the Washington Post‘s self-satirizing headline about the death of “religious scholar” Al-Baghdadi; it seems the New York Times still hasn’t laid off enough of its newsroom, since it took two Times reporters to break the scoop that President Trump indeed appeared in a photoshopped pic with . . . a »

Mid-Week in Pictures: Hero Dog Edition

Featured image As the Babylon Bee puts it, who knew that Trump could get Democrats to interrupt baseball, condemn dogs, and side with terrorists—all within the space of 24 hours? In any case, who knew that a frequent theme of the Week in Pictures—hero dogs—would become a front page headline? It calls for this special, short mid-week edition: From the incomparable Babylon Bee again: View post on imgur.com And finally. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Pierre Delecto Edition

Featured image Pierre Delecto? Pierre Delecto!?!? As the kids would say, AYFKM? That’s the pseudonym Mittens chose for himself? Takes me back to the first GOP presidential debate in 1988, when a big field was gunning for Vice President George H.W. Bush. One of them was Delaware Gov. Pete du Pont. When he challenged Bush on something (I forget what), Bush turned on him with splendid timing, and shivved du Pont so »

The Week in Pictures: LeBron 2020 Edition

Featured image So LeBron James is now a foreign policy and educational expert. Please don’t ask him about North Korea (though he probably cedes North Korean diplomacy to Dennis Rodman), whose crazy dictator this week apparently had a tantrum because he’s slipped down the power rankings of tyrants the U.S. is giving the love to below Assad, Erdogan, and China’s Xi, and responded by riding a white horse in the mountains. He »

The Week in Pictures: Calizuela Edition

Featured image There’s a meme that I think I used once here a long while ago, showing a bunch of candles, with the legend: “What did socialists use before candles? Electricity.” This came back to me flying into San Francisco last night from the north, and looking out the window at parts of the state that used to be civilized (i.e., lit with electricity). Welcome to Bolifornia—or is it Calivia? The fun »

The Week in Pictures: Epicycle Edition

Featured image By the time you are reading this installment of our mandatory Saturday feature, I’ll have long sailed out of Barcelona on the Claremont Institute/Pacific Research Institute 40th anniversary cruise, so I had to post of this week’s gallery several days ago. Which means I’ve missed the news and fresh memes for the last several days. And in the Age of Trump, that means you can miss A LOT. But some »

The Week in Pictures: Whistleblower Edition

Featured image So when did “whistleblower” become the DC/mainstream media equivalent of leaf-blower—a loud, annoying device that mostly just rearranges the existing debris because we’re all too lazy to think? And what message discipline! Early in the week we were all supposed to bow down to our child savior, St. Greta of Thunberg, but by Thursday, it was “Greta who?” Nice going, left. Keep going, leftists: the Trump 2020 campaign thanks you. »

The Week in Pictures: Buffoonpalooza Edition

Featured image Just when you’re certain that Beto O’Rourke had easily sewn up the Buffoon of the Week Award (despite strong bids from Joe Biden with his rollout of his running mate Corn Pop, and the New York Times Kavanaugh story), behold on Friday the late winning entry from (drum roll please) Justin Trudeau! Now it took some doing, but we underestimated the depth and range of Trudeau’s abilities. He should be »

The Week in Pictures: Dem Debate Edition

Featured image Another week, another Democratic presidential debate that seems to last a week. I think I’ve figured it out. While it may seem like they are pandering to the progressive base with progressively more extravagant promises of free stuff, they are really planning to wear us down, Chinese water-torture style, until we say no mas!, and hand the keys to the White House to one of them to make it stop. »
