The Tattoo: A Sign of the Times

Read MoreTattoos are not new. What is new is their ubiquity and extent of body coverage. They meet the eye with livid starkness everywhere one looks, turning the atmosphere and the culture positively fluorescent. What was once a niche market has expanded exponentially. Practically everyone of a certain age group, say, late teens to early […]

Wokesplaining’ Exposes the ‘Social Justice’ Tendency to Totalitarianism

Read MoreFacts that are inconvenient to the “woke” social justice narrative have to be explained away. The narrative is that we live in a class society in which whites, males, heterosexuals, Christians and Jews, and the rich all oppress people of color, females, LGBTQ++, Muslims, and the poor. The facts are, well, more diverse.

The Twitter Effect: Identity Politics Fails Again

Read MoreThe 2020 Democratic presidential primary was to be a new moment in American history: a field jam-packed with candidates representing the many oppressed minorities. There were multiple women, multiple black candidates, and an openly gay man. One candidate, Kamala Harris, won the “intersectional” lottery: a mixed-race woman, both black and Indian-American!

The Morning Briefing: Hung by the Chimney With Care Edition

Oozing Festive I’m going for something a little more lighthearted today and tomorrow (yes, there will be a Christmas Day briefing). Just because I have to read the news all day doesn’t mean everyone has to be miserable. Where in the Hell Are the Singing Cats? I have never seen the musical Cats, nor do […]

The Morning Briefing: Eddie Murphy Makes SNL Funny for the First Time In Years

THANK YOU For a few minutes on Saturday night, all was right with the program that was once must-see-TV for comedy aficionados.

The Morning Briefing: Democratic Wine Cave Whiteout Edition

The Political Equivalent of a Trip to the Dentist The Democrats were spared the embarrassment of having an all lily-white debate stage when Andrew Yang became a late qualifier. Still, that would be a difficult group to locate if you were outside in a blizzard. Greg Gutfeld made an observation that I think even Democrats […]

What If They Held an Impeachment and Nobody Came?

I’ve been on record a couple of times saying that the Democrats couldn’t possibly be stupid enough to actually go through with impeachment, considering the certainty he’d be acquitted, and the risks involved in an actual trial — like seeing Eric Ciaramella, Adam Schiff, Adam Schiff’s staff, James Comey, James Baker (the FBI lawyer), John […]

The Morning Briefing: Merry Impeachmentmas!

One Day This Will All Be Over Just not today. Schiff’s Folly finally gets its vote, and all that remains to be seen is if Grandma Nan was able to talk vulnerable red state Democrats into tossing their careers away the way she did with the Obamacare vote back in the day. The lefties have […]
