A Black Female SCOTUS Judge Won’t Do a Darn Thing to Help Blacks

When Joe Biden’s earpiece expresses, through his mouth, its firm intention to nominate a black female Supreme Court candidate, critics will say that race and sex shouldn’t matter in such things. Well, don’t worry — they won’t. Whoever Justice X ends up being, she’ll almost assuredly vote in lockstep with white Elena Kagan and Hispanic […]

Here’s PROOF That Reducing ‘Transwomen’s’ Testosterone Levels Does Not Eliminate Their Edge Over Real Women in Sports

As most know, there’s a contentious debate over whether it’s fair to let men who claim they’re female compete in women’s sports. It’s a debate driven more by emotion than reason, as so many things are. If a fellow claiming female status trounces woman athletes in a fairly high profile competition — as University of […]

If Limiting the Unvaxxed is Wise, What About Limiting Fat People?

For the record, I’ve nothing against our friendly-fronted friends. Why, my favorite philosopher, G.K. Chesterton, reportedly weighed in at close to 400 pounds. Yet the reality is that the horizontally challenged have something in common with the “unvaccinated.” The latter are now today’s lepers, attaining this status via refusal to accept experimental mRNA therapy agents […]

SCOTUS Justices’ COVID Ignorance Illustrates Why They Should Stay in Their Lane

Aside from labeling herself “an affirmative action baby,” Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor once called herself a “wise Latina.” Given this, apropos here is a line from ancient Chinese sage Confucius: “Wisdom is, when you know something, knowing that you know it; and when you do not know something, knowing that you do not know […]

God and Ego: Trump vs. Obama

A “great man knows he is not God,” observed the great and greater G. K. Chesterton — “and the greater he is the better he knows it.” This came to mind when hearing something President Trump said recently — and brought to mind something Barack Obama said many years ago, something a bit odd. “Our […]

Missing the Point: No, Satanic Christmastime Displays Are NOT Constitutionally Required

What does it say about a civilization when it feels compelled to place a satanic display next to baby Jesus at Christmastime? As a general question, you can answer that for yourself. But among other things, in our case it means too many Americans — including judges — wouldn’t know the Constitution from the Communist […]

Hey, UPenn “Trans” Swimmer “Lia” Thomas, I’m on YOUR Side!

“Lia” Thomas, the “transgender” University of Pennsylvania swimmer who has become famous, and infamous, for making women in the pool seem like manatees racing a barracuda, recently said that he just tries to tune out the negativity directed his way. After all, not only do many people say it’s unfair he’s competing with females, but […]

NATO? If Russia Conquered Europe, it Would an Improvement

As we ponder how our day’s Dr. Strangeloves want Ukraine to join NATO so that we’ll be obligated to war against Russia if it attacks its western, kleptocratic neighbor, we should consider a certain point. It isn’t just, as some have pointed out, that Cold War relic NATO has outlived its usefulness. It’s not just […]

Tucker Carlson is Wrong on Chris Cuomo and Brotherhood

“Blood is not thicker than morality,” radio host and author Laura Schlessinger once noted. This comes to mind when pondering how Fox News’ normally astute Tucker Carlson, who generally exhibits more philosophical depth than is the television news norm, stumbled a bit last Tuesday evening. At issue was a Tucker Carlson Tonight segment about ex-TV […]

VIDEO: The COVID Con is the ’76 Swine Flu Fiasco on Steroids

In a social media feed Monday, I came across a 1979 60 Minutes segment on the propaganda surrounding the 1976 swine flu panic. Many of us had already heard about how the event was reminiscent of today’s COVID-1984 con, but actually watching the segment drives home how striking the parallels between the two disease scares […]
