As people of good will celebrate or merely breathe a sigh of relief in response to the conviction of Minneapolis former police officer Derek Chauvin for the videotaped murder of George Floyd, it is worth noting that this victory likely would never have occurred had it not been for a spectacular act of property destruction.
Yes, there was that ...Read more
We've been in Afghanistan 20 years, Joe Biden's generals told him. All we need is a little more time. The president overruled them, ordering a complete withdrawal of American troops by Sept. 11.
Madiha Afzal and Michael O'Hanlon of the Brookings Institution articulate the opposition to Biden's decision to call it quits. Remove the U.S. ...Read more
Beginning in March 2016, I repeatedly and almost famously warned overconfident Democrats -- who ridiculed me for saying so -- that Donald Trump would probably win the 2016 election. Days after Trump's "softly sensuous" inauguration, I accurately predicted the next four years: "Three scenarios show us what everyday life in Trumpian America will ...Read more
The president has dementia.
I'm a cartoonist and a writer, and I am most assuredly not a gerontologist. I did not go to medical school. If I am not an expert in aging and cognitive decline, how do I know President Biden has dementia? The same way you and I and everyone else know things to be true despite our lack of credentials: experience and ...Read more
The debate over cancel culture centers around how the Democratic Party, "woke" activists and politically correct "social justice warriors" expel people from social acceptability or force them into joblessness because something they said or did provoked an online mob.
But Republicans have been canceling people for much longer.
I am living proof...Read more
American leftists find themselves at a tactical crossroad. Will the 39% of Americans (and more than half of those under 30) who steadily oppose capitalism stand up for themselves? Will socialists, progressives, communists, leftist anarchists and leftist libertarians boldly fight to build a movement, thus inspiring other allies of the working ...Read more
There is joy in the air. That joy is misplaced.
For that joy might kill us.
I set down these words on the 9th of March in Manhattan. Historically, the average temperature on this day of the year is 40 degrees Fahrenheit. If the weather forecast for today, March 9, 2021, is correct -- and at this writing, it looks like it will be -- the ...Read more
"Give Joe Biden time."
"He just got there."
"Trump left him a hell of a mess. It's unreasonable to expect him to turn things around in a month or two."
"Now is not the time to criticize him or the Democrats. When would be a good time? I don't know, but certainly not now. Later."
These are talking points used by President Joe Biden and his ...Read more
My death will make some people giddy with joy. That's cool. I like to make people happy.
In the unlikely event that I'm somehow able to witness the gleeful grins and chortles of those who savor the sweet news of my demise, I hope that whatever is left of me on the astral whatever will remain sufficiently objective to recognize the fundamental ...Read more
"Radical solutions require radical solutions," I wrote in my 2010 book, "The Anti-American Manifesto," a polemic that calls upon us to save ourselves from imminent social, economic and political collapse by overthrowing the system and rebuilding society from the ground up. We currently face several radical problems. But we're not likely to rise ...Read more
In the intraparty Democratic war between progressive leftists and corporate centrists, each side speaks a different language. The two factions' takes on Joe Biden's first weeks as president starkly demonstrate that inability to communicate.
Biden's base is his centrist supporters, those who backed him against Sen. Bernie Sanders during the ...Read more
