Now is the time of year when a liberal church somewhere in America makes national headlines by displaying a nativity scene where baby Jesus, Mary, and Joseph are separated in cages designed to resemble ICE detention facilities. Mainstream media reliably tout the symbolic significance of the scene. The Los Angeles Times recently published a letter to the editor which argues that “yes, we would put Jesus the refugee in a cage.”

A leading manufacturer has just announced the release of a brand new cutting-edge costume that is sure to get people talking this Halloween season. The costume was designed to make the wearer resemble Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The package contents include:

- a wig of Trudeau's iconic hair

- a pair of stick-on eyebrows (be careful with these, the glue is not high quality)

- a solid tie

- a dress shirt with t...

Tasking public institutions with multiple objectives causes confusion. Take the Federal Reserve, for instance. Politicians treat it as having a dual mandate: to curb both inflation and unemployment. The following passage is from the Federal Reserve website:

As the website admits, the goals of low unemployment and manageable inflation often work at cross purposes. This makes fed policy, at times, if not utterly incoher...

The following is satire.

Pro-Life conservatives have finally decided how to respond to the uncomfortable remarks of disgraced governor Ralph Northam and the off-putting policies of pro-abortion Democrats in Virginia and New York. The answer was obvious: enact opposing policies that are equally off-putting and force conservative governors into positions where they will be forced to make uncomfortable remarks. Checkmate, libtards...

The Democratic Primary season is not yet under way and the field of Democratic candidates is already enormous. Figuring out who will rise to the top can seem like an impossible task, at this point. However, if you pay close enough attention, you can read the tea leaves and see which way the political winds are blowing.

The first thing to realize is that Pete Buttigieg has never really been running for President. He is a ma...

I will be unable to see Avengers: Endgame this opening weekend, but I’m not too upset about it. The Marvel movie franchise has been hit or miss, lately. Some films, like Avengers: Civil War, have been top-notch comedic action flicks. Others, especially those intended to fill particular demographic niches, have been second-rate. However, Endgame has potential to be one of the better Marvel films because of the excellent set up...

Earlier this week, at a CNN Town Hall event, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders opined that criminals serving prison sentences should have the right to vote from prison. Chris Cuomo who moderated the discussion, pointed out to Sanders that he was stepping on a political land-mine. But Sanders was undeterred. He responded by re-asserting his complete commitment to the idea that every American citizen’s right to vote should n...

With the economy booming and unemployment low, the Democratic Party has decided to make "Climate Change" a central feature of its 2020 campaign. Environmental fear-mongering is reaching levels not seen in the United States since the late '90s and 2000s. During that time, failed presidential candidate Al Gore tried his hand at being a movie director. His ironically-named film, An Inconvenient...

On Monday, the Notre Dame De Paris caught fire, sparking worldwide discussion about the importance of the cathedral to both France and the entire Western world. Reactions on social media were mostly outpourings of love and support. However, there were some who were less than supportive. Leftist magazine Rolling Stone, for instance, called the fire a "liberation" from the building's oppressive "meaning." Other reactions we...

A few days ago, Representative Dan Crenshaw attacked Representative Ilhan Omar on Twitter, linking to footage where she referred to the 9/11 attacks as "some people did something." Ilhan Omar responded by calling his Tweet an "incitement to violence" against her. Representative Rashida Tlaib immediately and predictably called the attack "racist," saying "They do this all the time to us, especially women of color." Representati...

Earlier this week, I published a piece encouraging President Donald Trump to endorse a policy of reparations for slavery. I expected that this idea would ruffle feathers on both sides of the political aisle, and it certainly did. Reagan Republicans predictably recoiled from what they considered the policy’s “collectivism,” and Democrats instinctively hated the idea that Trump could be a moral leader on any issue. However, some...

During the 1980’s, while Ronald Reagan was convincing Americans that capitalism was synonymous with freedom, a young politician from Vermont had very different ideas. While the Republican establishment believed that the communist USSR was an “evil empire,” mayor Bernie Sanders openly praised their socialist economic system, and even “honeymooned” in the Soviet Union with his wife.

Decades later, millennials have...

If you just read news headlines, you might think there was a recent spate of homophobic, Islamophobic, and antisemitic hate crimes in America which Democrat leaders responded to with appropriate condemnation. You might also wonder how in the world, in 2019, 23 Republican Congressmen got away with openly refusing to condemn hatred. Of course, all of that would be “fake news.” What really happened is that one Democratic Congress...

Are Liberals more tolerant than Conservatives? Or is it the other way around? Are rural Trump-supporters more tolerant than Democratic urban elites? Or does tolerance positively correlate with metropolitanism? A recent article in the Atlantic purports to give a scientific breakdown of political partisanship across America. At least one mainstream conservative pundit has latched onto the results of the study in order to assert...

For Americans, concern about "climate change" is inversely related to the immediacy of other other, more serious concerns. When the economy collapses, politicians wisely avoid talking about policies that could increase the cost of gasoline. When tragic events like terrorist attacks or school shootings occur, few politicians are willing to wax lyrical about the "threat" posed by the climate. One odd result of this inverse relat...
