Why the UK Repeatedly Stumbles Heading for the Brexit

MAGA–hat owners would feel right at home on the streets of London. Moseying along wary of a sneak attack by leftist thugs, they’d be secure in the knowledge that in the UK, just as in the US, government institutions are run by individuals adamantly opposed to them and any public policy they support. Specifically, those individuals are leftists who are ...

Cleavage Wars or How Deep Is the Valley?

Here we have another age–old conflict with no end in sight. Combatants are dug in and take no prisoners. The justifications behind the conflict have been heard repeatedly. The grievances and provocations are ancient. The danger of collateral damage is very real. And there’s already evidence of crossing a red–line border. And I’m not even talking about Syria — unless ...

Subsidized Diners Demand We Pay Mandatory Tips

I may have discovered the real reason people living in blue states don’t contribute as much to charity as those living in red states. It’s not that they are hypocrites whose ‘compassion’ doesn’t extend to their own wallets. It’s because all their discretionary giving is going to restaurant tips. Getting woke is getting expensive. A recent headline in the WoePost ...

Maryland Church Washed Away by Watered–Down Theology

Twinbrook Baptist Church in Rockville, MD recently had a going–out–of–business–sale. The church had been spiritually bankrupt for decades, but the members finally had enough and decided to sell the physical plant, too. The Twinbrook Baptist started out on solid Christian footing. Founded in 1956, the church was notable for following the Apostle Paul’s doctrine in Galatians 3:27 – 29 “For ...

Democrats Hoist on Their Own Transcript

“Heard it from a friend who Heard it from a friend who Heard it from another you been messin’ around”                REO Speedwagon Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call for formal impeachment proceedings is not the first time this has happened in Congress. It’s not even the first time President Trump has been threatened with impeachment. It is, however, the first time ...

On the Trail of Tears With Federal Bureaucrats

Breitbart News reports 80 percent of the female migrants to the USA’s heartland are sexually assaulted during the trip. Yet the heartless Trump administration remains relentless and will continue with its plan to force the USDA’s Economic Research Service to move to Missouri. Wait. I’ve mistakenly conflated two stories. The sexual assault victims are willing illegals heading for our interior, ...

Conservative Culture Options: Fight Back or Hope for Endangered Species Listing

Readers may be totally unfamiliar with the term ‘David French–ism.’ That doesn’t mean you can ignore it. David French–ism and its proponents are one of the reasons conservatives and Christianity have been almost routed from the pubic square. David French–ism is the failure of corporate and think–tank conservatism that resulted in a revolt of the rank–and–file and the election of ...

‘The Hunt’ Is Canceled, But the Left Still Pursues Conservatives

It was disappointing when Hollywood temporarily canceled the premier of ‘The Hunt,’ a movie where leftists killed Deplorables for sport. Don’t mistake this cancellation for a ceasefire. Conservatives may not be shot on the big screen, but leftist commissars are still gunning for us. The Washington Post’s Viewpoint section is proof. On any Sunday, the WoePost’s opinion pages read like ...

Gun–Grabbers Shoot Themselves in the Foot

Some Opposition Media journos are taking a novel approach to covering guns. They’re actually going hands-on. Hayley Peterson, of Business Insider, decided to buy a gun. She avoided going to a local gun store — presumably because employees are experts on the process — and decided to try Walmart, which is not known for employee expertise or visibility. “I went ...

Medical Migrants Head to Mexico

There’s hope for price competition in healthcare, but so far only with companies that self–insure by paying for all employee’s medical costs. I do my part by advocating price transparency for hospitals to create competition and put downward pressure on insurance rates. Simply require hospitals that accept federal money to post binding prices for the 25 most common inpatient surgeries; ...

A Wake–up Call for Snooze Alarm Conservatives

‘The Hunt’ has hit a shunt and count me among the deeply disappointed. The Hollywood Reporter informs us, “Universal has decided to scrap the release of ‘The Hunt’ — an R-rated satire in which elites hunt “deplorables” for sport — following a series of mass shootings across the country.” Many conservative commentators hail this as a victory. Take that, Hollywood ...

Federal Employees Want Taxpayers to Keep Their Distance

The Washington Post (WoePost to regular readers) recently had a very ominous quote. Sandra Salstrom, a lobbyist for the American Federation of Government Employees, told an eager stenographer, “It seems like if they are successful here, this could just be the tip of the iceberg. We don’t know who’s next.” What inhumane, outrageous and bigoted Trump administration policy has attracted ...

Evidently Ahab Mueller Wasn’t the Captain of the Pequod

There are some questions that just aren’t asked at a hearing because the questions are superfluous. The answers are part of everyone’s data base. At least everyone who counts. When Special Prosecutor Robert ‘Ahab’ Mueller testified before the House I would’ve asked about FISA warrant applications. Why Sen. Barbara Boxer was warned about a Chinese spy in her office but ...

Trump Endorsed by a Turk

(The Census marks yet another cut–and–run by Trump, but I hate to waste a column.) The Associated Press Gotcha Patrol has discovered President Trump’s Facebook man–in–the–street campaign videos are using actors instead of supporters. Even worse many of the streets are in Turkey or Paris. Take the bearded “Thomas from Washington,” who is more likely Mohammed from Izmir. Thats a ...
