The Rule of Law or Rule of Man? (Redux 2.0)

The more things change, the more they stay the same. President Trump, that supposed protector of the Constitution, bulwark against Leftist encroachments, Clinton-slayer, and Drainer of Swamps, recently rejected the notion of Fifth Amendment Due Process protections while simultaneously appearing to embrace a Second Amendment-infringing position, in declaring “I like taking guns away early.  Take […]

The President Releases “The Highly-Anticipated 2017 Fake News Awards”

Here.  And well-deserved, if we are being honest. Say what you will about Donald Trump the man and/or Donald Trump the President, he certainly makes for some interesting (and savage) jousting with the mainstream media.

Apparently World War III is Inevitable

One of the numerous reasons I refused to vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential elections was her open and wanton desire to start World War III with Russia (on top of her general warmongering nature).  Though I also did not vote for Donald Trump (for various reasons), I at least thought that he […]

The Election is Official

You are Still Crying Wolf (Repost)

Scott Alexander at Slate Star Codex compiled a well-reasoned indictment of the heretofore repeatedly discussed “crying wolf” phenomenon on the Left’s part, using solid facts and logic.  No ad hominem.  No straw men.  No appeals to probability. If you are a Democrat, pro-Clinton, anti-Trump (or whomever), I have always invited substantive discussions and criticisms of […]
