Notre Dame: Symbol of a Failing Culture

Like many I was horrified on so many levels by the news of the fire which engulfed the iconic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. The thing that makes me truly sad is that my first reaction to the news wasn't basic human safety concerns. My first reaction was to jump to the political ramifications and … Continue reading Notre Dame: Symbol of a Failing Culture

Liberalism’s Last Stand — Brexit

When the Soviet Union fell in 1991 Marxism was dealt a near fatal blow. The crown jewel of communism was no more and descended into the worst kind of lawlessness. Francis Fukiyama famously declared the End of History and the U.S. went on a 'to the victors go the spoils' looting of 1990's Russia that … Continue reading Liberalism’s Last Stand — Brexit

When Bubbles Burst – Tesla, The Everything Cycle and the End of Global Warming

As the center of the U.S. freezes this weekend, Elon Musk is trying to figure out how to save Tesla from going the way of Enron. Religions die hard. It takes an orgy of evidence to change a person's mind on a subject that is integral to their moral and ethical structure. In the case … Continue reading When Bubbles Burst – Tesla, The Everything Cycle and the End of Global Warming

Soros Confirms He is Losing in Europe

Last month at Davos, George Soros turned around completely on China, echoing the Trump administration (of all things) in warning the world against the rise of China versus his previous stance. The main reason for this shift in Soros' attitude on China stems from his fear that the European Union will not achieve its goals … Continue reading Soros Confirms He is Losing in Europe

Democrats Begin Eating Themselves Prepping for 2020

Ideological possession always ends in pogroms. When the leadership of the most powerful organization in the world is at stake nothing is off limits, especially for power-hungry Democrats. This is why we're now seeing a concerted effort to smear Bernie Sanders just after he announced his Presidential campaign for 2020. The Democrats blame him for … Continue reading Democrats Begin Eating Themselves Prepping for 2020

Jumping the Global Warming Shark

There's a moment near the end of Ayn Rand's mostly brilliant Atlas Shrugged where she details the unveiling of various government-funded boondoggles whose development we track as the story unfolds. All of them end in tragedy and mass death.  From trains asphyxiating their passengers to sonic weapons killing spectators, the hubris and ineptitude of the rentier class which … Continue reading Jumping the Global Warming Shark

The Boomer Bomber, Naked Emperors and the End of Civility

Recently Hillary Clinton picked herself up off the couch to declare that it was time to end being civil to her political opponents.  Honestly, I thought this statement rich from someone who has so many dead bodies her scattered behind her. Being an Enemy of Hilly has a very short lifespan. But, her statement itself … Continue reading The Boomer Bomber, Naked Emperors and the End of Civility

Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Kanye, The Culture War and the Reassertion of Natural Rights

When I said yesterday that "The Culture War is Over. The cultural Marxists lost." I didn't mean that there was no more work to be done.  On the contrary, the real work is just beginning. Kanye West just single-handedly fought the Battle of the Bulge in the Culture War.  Good on him.  But, like that … Continue reading Gold Goats ‘n Guns Live – Kanye, The Culture War and the Reassertion of Natural Rights
