“Can’t Kill Enough to Win?”

Well, can we at least TRY? Those given the awful task of combat must be able to act with the necessary savagery and purposefulness to destroy those acting as, or in direct support of, Islamic terrorists worldwide. In 2008, then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Navy Admiral Michael Mullen said, “We can’t kill our […]

Trump at war

As are we all. Steve Bannon: This is a war. This is a war for our country. This country, we’ve been in this war for a while. It’s going to take another 15, 20, 25 years and we’re going to be one thing or the other on the other side of this. We’re either going to be the country that was bequeathed […]

Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown redux

I excerpted this piece back in 2011 when it ran on NRO, but it’s been reposted on Lifezette and updated a bit, and is worth another look. While Charles Schulz’s “Peanuts” characters were well-known from the newspaper comic strip, there were fears among the creative team that the characters would not translate well to television. […]

Pow wow chow!

Steyn is having WAY too much fun batting Fauxcahantas around like a cheap cat toy. Why, back in 1984 she submitted some of her favorite dishes to the Pow Wow Chow cookbook, a “compilation of recipes passed down through the Five Tribes families.” The recipes sent in by “Elizabeth Warren—Cherokee” include a crab dish with tomato mayonnaise.

Playing rough

This. This right here, dammit. My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.” Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been […]

“Drain the swamp” won’t even BEGIN to cover it

Codevilla weighs in on GrabAssGate. During my eight years on the Senate staff, sex was a currency for renting rungs on ladders to power. Uninvolved and with a hygroscopic shoulder, I listened to accounts of the trade, in which some one-third of senators, male senior staff, and corresponding numbers of females seemed to be involved.

UNEXPECTED!

A good summary of Trump’s accomplishments to date. This Thanksgiving, Americans in general — and free-market conservatives in particular — have plenty for which to be grateful. And much of it would be absent had the White House’s current occupant not become president on November 8, 2016. The day after Donald J. Trump defeated Hillary […]

Delenda. Est

Or, put more, ummm, directly: Bug. Fucking. Nuts. The 2014 death of Eric Garner spurred Black Lives Matter protests. In fact, Garner’s final words — “I can’t breathe” — became a rallying cry for the movement designed to combat overly aggressive police behavior. Garner was approached by police for allegedly selling “loosies” — individual cigarettes sold without […]

Point, counterpoint

Our like-minded criminal co-conspirator SteveF, from our Partners In Hate over at DP, lays out a fine strategy countering all those “How to harangue your hoggish, drunken, fat, conservative relatives at Thanksgiving—because they’re stupidstupidstupid, and you’re so SMART!” articles targeted at neurotic, callow, obnoxious, ignorant, and inexplicably arrogant college kids we have to endure every […]

Nougat? NOUGAT?!?

I don’t write about these things much anymore, and haven’t in a while. I used to really enjoy tweaking Steven Den Beste about my beloved Macs versus his crappy ol’ PeeCees back in the old days; him, me, and Brian Tiemann had many an enjoyable and informative three-way e-mail exchange about that stuff, with my […]

One-way freakery

Well, THIS could sure explain a lot. During last Tuesday’s minor off-year elections, a glorious total of “eight openly transgender candidates” swept to victory, squashing the hopes and stomping on the necks of transphobic bigots nationwide, who really need to either repent or curl up and die already. While this is all undoubtedly cause for […]

“Before I can teach you how to reason, I must first teach you how to rid yourself of unreason”

Ground rules. Reasoning requires you to understand truth claims, even truth claims that you think are false or bad or just icky. Most of you have been taught to label things with various “isms” which prevent you from understanding claims you find uncomfortable or difficult. Reasoning requires correct judgment. Judgment involves making distinctions, discriminating. Most […]

IT’S A CELEBRATION, BITCHES!!

The feel-good ONT of all time. Alternate title for this post: Suck a fat one, losers. Which I just might turn into a new category here, too. The closing picture in the AOSHQ post is the best of the bunch, I think.

Fool Kill me once…

Aesop has a suggestion, and it’s a good ‘un. Islam is incompatible with Western democracy. You can believe the Diversity Bandwagon, or just believe your lying eyes from every spot they foul around the world. 99.something percent of rapes in Scandinavia – Norway, Sweden, Denmark – are perpetrated by Muslim invaders there. They’ve burned London […]

This is not the Republican civil war you are looking for

Limbaugh quotes Hanson: RUSH: Victor Davis Hanson. He’s got a piece at National Review today called, “The ‘Never Trump’ Construct.” Now, this is a long piece, and I would actually would love to read it to you word-for-word, but I’m not going to because it’s too long. But it’s interesting with the point that I made […]

Der Bingle

Another spellbinding Steyn music post. Where did it all go? Within a decade of his death, you could wander into a record store and find the biggest-selling record artist had dwindled down to a couple of compilation CDs on weird European labels you’d never heard of. To most Americans under a certain age, the name […]

Immoral puritans

Schilchter has been so damned good of late, I kind of regret the coming of the weekend, since it means two whole days of eagerly waiting to see who he unloads on next. You can tell a lot about a people by who they hate and who they idolize. They hate Donald Trump, and it’s […]

Good reads

You CF lifers will know Francis Poretto as a long-time friend of this site, a highly-skilled fellow blogger in his own right, and a damned excellent sci-fi novelist as well. He’s been serving of late as a sort of part-time spiritual mentor for me as well, for which indulgence I am very grateful to him. […]

The feel-good story of a lifetime

Seriously, seriously wonderful. A post shared by Jackie Alexander (@jackiealex) on Oct 2, 2017 at 5:02pm PDT If you aren’t reaching for the hankies after clicking on the vid for the backstory here, you must truly have a heart of stone. I’ve watched it about five times already, and haven’t gotten tired of it yet. […]

Where’s your Pussyhats NOW, Leftards?

Yes. Yes. A thousand times yes. Today is the one-year anniversary of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape. (I know. It feels more like 10 years ago.) For days, Americans were subjected to an ongoing audio loop of a private conversation in 2005 between Donald Trump and the show’s co-host, Billy Bush. I don’t need to remind […]

A different view

John Ringo shares it with us. I may be the only person in the ‘pundit’ world who can put what we know about the Las Vegas shooter in perspective because I’ve dealt with something similar before. My personal take, at this point, is ‘homicidal psychotic break, rationale currently unknown, possible pharmacological.’ To debunk a few […]

Live by the liberalism…

Die by it. Football players who call for equality are throwing rocks from a glass stadium. The NFL’s high-paying jobs are only given to men with specific physical skills, while the rest of the people are pushed aside. It’s time for the league to start leading by example. The time is right for the NFL […]

The ultimate National Conversation

Careful what you wish for, “liberals.” I don’t agree with liberals often, because I’m not an idiot and because I love America, but when they once again say, “We must have a conversation about guns!” I still couldn’t agree more. And, since all we’ve heard is you leftists shrieking at us all week, I’ll start it off. […]

Just the facts

No wonder libtards hate ’em. But good on this one; hers is a remarkable story of true open-mindedness, of willingness to adjust one’s own beliefs when a careful examination of hard facts fails to unearth any evidence to support them. Before I started researching gun deaths, gun-control policy used to frustrate me. I wished the […]

The milkman’s kid

Annnnnd it’s Muslims liberals both. I don’t usually post on events like the Vegas atrocity in the early days for the simple reason that almost everything the newsies are talking about in the early going always turns out to be wrong. In this case, now that the media dust is starting to settle a bit, […]
