Those Persians Sure Must Want War!

Look how they put their gulf all around our ships! From another great Pat Buchanan column today, The Rise of the Generals: Monday, the USS Mahan fired a flare to warn off an Iranian patrol boat, 1,000 meters away. Supposedly, this was a provocation. But Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif had a point when he tweeted: “Breaking: Our Navy operates in — yes, correct — the Persia...

ESPN + SJW = Layoffs

What’s profitable in the state universities falls a bit flat even in the state-protected cartel of cable television. [W]hen asked if the increasingly political nature of ESPN itself played a role in the layoffs…“That is definitely a percentage of it,” [ESPN anchor Linda] Cohn said Thursday (h/t NY Post). “I don’t know ...

Making Junk Mail Great Again

Some neighbors of mine told me they got some junk mail from the Republican National Committee at the behest of President Trump. It was begging for donations. They’re die-hard Democrats so I thought, oh, I don’t know, really? But then they showed it to me! And, sure enough! It was the real deal! A “Trump Agenda Survey” which was just a Trojan Horse for political panhandling! They were begging for money for Trump! And I can’t recall a sitting president ever asking ...

Let the Kickbacks and Political Paybacks Begin, Chicago Style

Obama pocketed two $400,000 speaking fees this week for one-hour speeches.  One was from the Wall Street too-big-to-fail-bailout-recipient bankster firm of Cantor Fitzgerald, and the other was a media company.  The former is comprised of the “fat cat Wall Street bankers” who Obama pretended to condemn when he was emperor.   The post Let...

The Very Model of a Modern Major Campus Speaker

The violent communists who now control many American universities will set buildings and cars on fire to prevent even one dissenting voice, whether it is Ann Coulter, or just about anyone else.  Conservatives and libertarians were long ago blackballed from polite company in “higher” education, with few exceptions.  In contrast, as I once told one of my classes, the speakers that are brought to campus and paid huge honoraria are such that “each one is a bigger communist tha...
