  • Why does nobody mention that Hillary Clinton is perfectly nice

    Hello. I am Hillary Rodham Clinton, and this is the Graham Norton Show.” The almost-holder of what was once the loftiest imaginable office was surprisingly game for a bit of British kitsch: warm, indulgent and dressed in yellow, like a president on a kindergarten walkabout. She is still too grand for some of Graham Norton’s antics. She wasn’t sold on the idea of sharing a sofa with another celebrity. You cannot blame her. The chat-trading of Norton’s ersatz dinner party environment is inherently high-risk. You could be in the middle of the most profoundly revealing story – one you could...

    As regular readers know, my day job is now running Center of the American Experiment, Minnesota’s conservative think and action tank. These days, we are fighting the far-left public school establishment, particularly in Edina, Minnesota. Edina was once one of the country’s top school districts, but that was before the Left took over and prioritized politics–especially racial politics–over education. The Center’s Kathy Kersten authored a sensational exposé of Edina’s bullying left-wing culture in our magazine, Thinking Minnesota. With a current circulation of 80,000, Thinking Minnesota is the state’s second-largest magazine by circulation. With the assistance of a donor, we delivered...

    “Moreover, the history of those who carried on the Marxist tradition on women’s oppression during the mid-twentieth century has frequently been rendered invisible—yet these activists and theorists provided an indispensible thread that continued between the victory of women’s suffrage in the 1920s (often referred to as US feminism’s “first wave” and the rise of the 1960s movements for women’s liberation (known as its “second wave”.

    So, there's a lot of odious stuff in the New York Times‘ hard-hitting piece on film executive Harvey Weinstein's decades of scummy behavior. You should really read the whole article. I don't feel the need to highlight any individual part of it. It's all amazing, especially his fixer Lisa Bloom's remarkable hypocrisy. I do want to note just one thing, however. Here's the conclusion of a statement he provided to the Times: This is grotesquely brazen. Because it's so transparently obvious what Harvey Weinstein is saying here: "Guys, I'm a liberal, I'm going to go after the NRA, I'm going...

    Commentary: Welcome to the dysfunction of Illinois government Diana Sroka Rickert I walked into the Thompson Center on my first day, not knowing what to expect. In many ways, my new workplace was like any other large organization: big building, thousands of people and plenty of broken computers. Except this building is dilapidated, many of the employees are political hires and the computers will never be repaired, ever. And it’s all paid for by you, Illinois taxpayers. “Welcome to state government,” said a new colleague, as we boarded the elevator for the 16th floor. This summer I got to see...

     During 1966, paranoia gripped Mao Zedong; he felt he was losing his power and influence in the Communist Party of China. To reassert his political presence, he announced a new Cultural Revolution and unleashed a paramilitary force of teenagers on the country, known as the Red Guard. It was their mission to destroy all bourgeoisie and Western influences in China and to restore the purity of the party that he led during the revolution and World War II. Wearing red armbands, red neckerchiefs, and continuously reading and reciting from a little Red Book of Mao quotes, the groups were...

    IT IS INSUFFICIENT TO STATE the obvious of Donald Trump: that he is a white man who would not be president were it not for this fact. With one immediate exception, Trump’s predecessors made their way to high office through the passive power of whiteness—that bloody heirloom which cannot ensure mastery of all events but can conjure a tailwind for most of them. Land theft and human plunder cleared the grounds for Trump’s forefathers and barred others from it. Once upon the field, these men became soldiers, statesmen, and scholars; held court in Paris; presided at Princeton; advanced into the...

    I saw a little girl who spent all her tears, in a shelter squeezing her mother’s fingers. The other hand held tight on her shirt, assuring herself she wouldn’t be swept away again. Her face was dirty, wet hair strewn across her cheek like a scar from battle. The eyes were wide in a stance of frightened anticipation on what’s next. No one could comprehend the horror of the monster that day. They don’t teach that in Kindergarten. Then someone asked her if she would like some ice cream. Her mouth blossomed, a smile hatched as her eyes turned down...

    The nation's eyes are fixated on dramatic flooding in Houston after Hurricane Harvey, where the death toll (so far) is thankfully small compared to flooding in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The government response on all levels seems to be fairly effective, and unlike with Katrina, the press coverage hasn't been dominated by accusations of racism or inhumanity in the rescue effort. There's one obvious exception: cartoonists for the left. Politico tweeted an image by radical artist Matt Wuerker in which he mocks Christian wackos wearing Confederate flag shirts. A man being rescued from his rooftop declares: "Angels!...

The frowning, blond-haired, uniform-clad figure wears an "I'm with Alt-Right" T-shirt and a swastika armband and salutes Hitler beside a menu in the style of...

    You may have heard about Harvey the Hawk who freaked out in the hurricane, took shelter in a guy’s cab and wouldn’t leave. So the guy decided to take him home till he could find a shelter to rehab him. Everyone thought this a sweet story of a bird bonding with his rescuer -- until politics intruded, as they always do with the left. Apparently the good Samaritan had some, um, non-politically incorrect decorating tastes. Harvey the Hawk visits his benefactor’s well stocked bar – no wonder he has to go to rehabJazz Shaw has the rest of the story:...

    Tourette Syndrome is a neurological disorder with which many are familiar: Tourette syndrome (TS or simply Tourette's) is a common neuropsychiatric disorder with onset in childhood,[4]characterized by multiple motor tics and at least one vocal (phonic) tic. It has several subsets. The one that affects liberals - Tourette Liberalis- includes something known as coprolalia, which is defined as "the utterance of obscene words or socially inappropriate and derogatory remarks." Although this subset is generally regarded as small, it affects many, if not most, liberals. There are certain trigger words that cause liberals to blurt out those inappropriate and derogatory remarks. The word that most commonly elicits completely irrational responses...
  • Sheriff Arpaio Gets A Get of Jail Freebe from POTUS

    WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump on Friday pardoned a notorious former Arizona sheriff who willfully violated a federal judge’s order by unlawfully detaining individuals his officers claimed might be in the country illegally. Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had previously proclaimed himself “America’s toughest sheriff,” was convicted of criminal contempt last month for violating a 2011 order that barred Arpaio and his office from detaining individuals solely based on suspicions about their legal status. Arpaio, 85, was scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 5. “Throughout his time as Sheriff, Arpaio continued his life’s work of protecting the public...

    Since the violence in Charlottesville, when white supremacists left one young woman dead and 19 others injured, the Southern Poverty Law Center has hit the jackpot. They [are] set to receive millions of dollars in donations from some of the nation’s deepest of pockets. Apple pledged $1 million. JP Morgan Chase & Co.: half a million. George and Amal Clooney even got in on the action, promising to donate another $1 million. But is donating money to the S.P.L.C. the best way to combat this[racist] poison? I think not. If Tim Cook and Jamie Dimon had done their due diligence,...

Police say 29-year-old Joshua Cobin has been arrested on three counts of aggravated assault on police and one count of unlawful assembly.

In a tweet on Wednesday, the ACLU posted a photo of a child wearing a “free speech” onesie with the text, “This is the future that ACLU members want”: Instead of noticing the shirt the baby was wearing, some people immediately took offense to the tweet including a white baby: Anthropologist Michael Oman-Reagan suggested he would rather have a future featuring black characters from science fiction films: In response to the uproar, the ACLU thanked its Twitter follows for...
