The Lies of Black Lives Matter

They Can’t Handle You Knowing the Truth. Black Lives Matter is the biggest, dumbest, most vicious conspiracy theory since the Tsarist secret police faked up the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Its entire narrative is, as Jim Goad writes, “moored in lies and rampaging innumeracy”. It’s paramount, of course, to distinguish at the outset …

The Trump Doctrine and the Opportunity of the 21st Century

2020 Will Potentially Set the Template for the 21st Century. Subjecting myself to the ordeal of listening to Australia’s taxpayer-funded leftist propaganda network ABC radio, some time ago, I listened with mixed bemusement and exasperation as their “foreign policy expert” whined that Trump was upsetting the established world order. “That’s the whole point, you idiot!” …

Time to Stop Laughing at Sleepy Joe

In the three weeks since this article was first published, the Democrats have made their choice. Sanders' presidential hopes are over. The Dems obviously weren't prepared to be crazy-brave. Remember when the left-media were wall-to-wall mocking of candidate Donald Trump in 2016? Worst, of course, were the late-night “comedians” (so-called). Whether it was John Oliver …

Well, a week is a long time in politics, and since this was first public, Buttigieg has quit the presidential race (no doubt to the disgruntlement of all those journalists who struggled so hard to learn how to pronounce his name). …

Bad Orange Man Cheats the Left Again – and Rewrites the Rulebook

The NPCs are Angry Because the Bad Orange Man is NOT a Warmonger. A Devil's Curmudgeon. Imagine if the left demanded a war and Trump didn’t come? It’s not quite what happened last month, but it’s near enough. While the Trump-deranged left stopped short of actually demanding a war with Iran, it was plain that …

Is America Really on the Verge of Civil War?

The American left have never been able to reconcile themselves to losing the 2016 presidential election. Having quickly moved past denial, they’ve become permanently lost in the second stage of grief: anger. Such violent and unrelenting anger, in fact, that many, on both sides of politics, have been moved to wonder if America stands on …

Making Rods For Their Own Backs

My latest for Whale Oil blog Purveyors of narrow-minded identity politics fail to grasp the strength of truly liberal democracies, which is that their laws and institutions are crafted for the benefit and protection of everybody. Groups who, when in power, shape political weapons to bully and harass their opponents into submission are invariably dismayed …
