Say It Ain't So, Big O

Oscar Gamble does not belong in the Baseball Hall of Fame. But his hair does. Read my article @ the American Spectator celebrating the life of the Big O and his afro. 

Big Bird Is Watching You

"If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever,” George Orwell offered in the first half of the 20th century. He did not foresee a bird wearing that boot in the new millennium. Read my column @ the American Spectator on Twitter's "shadow banning" of conservatives. 

Social Justice Satanists

Nobody likes a hypocrite. Sunday school teachers who rip off hookers on Saturday night make us really, really mad. Do-gooder Satanists out to save the world — pursuing “radical politics, feminist aesthetics and community unity” in the name of their religion — irritate terribly, too.​ Read my article @ the American Spectator on how a new wave of caring Satanists just wants to make the world a better place. 

2017, the Worst Year Until 2018

Twenty seventeen passes as a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad year for caring mentors passionate about administering shoulder rubs to interns, the Russian-American Goodwill Association, and statuary who sin against the present by standing as monuments to its ignorance of the pas​t. Read my recap of the year that gets better and better as your life gets worse @ the American Spectator

Word of the Year

Leading dictionaries selected "feminism," "youthquake," and "complicit" as their words of the year, offering heavily-politicized reasons to explain their choices. In selecting these as the year’s supposed buzzwords, the ventriloquists at Oxford, Merriam-Webster, and put words in our mouths. Read my article @ City Journal, appearing in abridged form in the Wall Street Journal, on how the words define them, not us.

Grassy Knolls, in Dallas, Bowling Green, & Our Imaginations

A Communist killed the president 54 years ago this month and a left-winger assaulted the senator last week. It flatters some to believe otherwise, so some believe otherwise. And if 54 years, and the release in the past month of thousands of documents, cannot unravel conspiracy theories surrounding Dallas, then the likelihood of journalists and others ideologically committed to an alternative telling of a much more minor event in Bowling Green accepting the truth appear slim — and Slim’s in Texas (presumably on the grassy knoll near the Texas School Book Depository in Dealey Plaza).​ Read my article @ the American Spectator on how more than a grassy knoll links the attacks on politicians riding in a convertable and on a lawnmower tractor. 

Assassination Documents Show Communication Between Oswald & CPUSA

The trove of Kennedy assassination documents released by the federal government on Thursday includes a memorandum indicating communication between Lee Harvey Oswald and prominent members of the Communist Party of the United States of America. Read my reporting @ Breitbart on the government's efforts to keep secret the correspondence between John F. Kennedy's assassin and one of the founders of the American Civil Liberties Union and leaders of the Communist Party.

The Politics of ... Pizza?

Boston's Dudley Dough billed itself as “pizza with purpose.” It turns out that those in the business of purpose cannot long stay in the business of pizza. The purpose of business is, unfortunately for Dudley Dough, business, not purpose​. The pizza parlor featuring Social Justice Mondays and promising "just pay, dignity, and a voice in their workplace” for their workers soon lays off all of its workers. Read my article @ the American Spectator on how social justice makes for a bad business model.

50 Years Ago Today, Che Guevara, Executioner, Executed

Che Guevara played revolutionary until the people treated him as one. Fifty years ago today, Bolivians executed the Argentine as though some rich interloper. Read my article @ Breitbart on how they understood him better than he understood himself.

The Grinch Who Stole Dr. Seuss

Do you delight in 10 Dr. Seuss books for free?

No way, this kid-lit Mein Kampf does not fit for me,

Or children at Cambridge public school’s library.

I will not let them read, refuse to let them see. 


The Lorax—those mustachioed ku klux kreatures,

And them yellow white supremacists the Sneetches,

Make checkout desk place for pulpit-pounding preachers

Trigger warning picture book that young minds bleaches.


How can hardback-lending, brain-bending First Mom argue

For infamous, kite-flying hatemonger Thing 2,

Aryan Nations poster girl Cindy Lou Who,

Or donut-dreaming pale-face David Donald Doo?


Card holders, Dewey dec’mal devotees—trust us;

Libraries not for reading but social justice.

Of people of color Brown Bar Ba Loots don’t fuss;

They suffer from a bad case of false consciousness.


Fear not bibliophiles to make St. Lawrence blush,

To the bonfire with your shelf of Dr. Seuss rush.

Brains become oatmeal, minds transformed to sloppy mush;

To all but ourselves, we librarians say “Shush!”
