I’m not going to link the original articles that I’m disagreeing with, so you’ll have a little catching up to do. Not to worry; those that make it here are bright enough to do a bit of mental exercise. I have faith in you. (more…)
On the evening of December 9, French protestors set up a Guillotine to protest Macron’s globalist policies. But what if I told you… (more…)
We all know by now that there’s a difference between the news we see on TV and the actual truth of the matter.
And yet, when we discover that the truth isn’t quite what we thought it was, we’re always surprised, often to the point where we’ll resist the new information.
Each of the startling statements in the following list contains some truth; some are even (more…)
The Syrian Civil War has been characterized by the United Nations as the “great humanitarian crisis of our age”. A nation of twenty million, Syria has lost twenty percent of its population, most of whom have fled as international refugees. On the other hand, over a hundred thousand foreign militants have gone there to fight, and the armed forces of a dozen nations have deployed in what has become one of the biggest proxy wars in all of history.
And it’s nearly over. (more…)

It pains me greatly to have to explain this, but you leave me no choice: We are NOT giving Saudi Arabia guns. We’re SELLING them guns. For a LOT of money.
Sometimes, you people scare me. I mean, forget about fake news. The real problem is, the viewers are so frigging stupid.
No, not you. See, the difference is, you read. I can tell (more…)
Look, it’s not complicated. The headlines are there to catch your eye; the articles are the part that you read to figure out what’s being said. And that’s not just with me; it’s with everyone — every news source, every pundit, everything.
The ironies here are deeply layered and beautiful.
But that’s an understatement; it’s worthy of so much more. It’s like looking into the Grand Canyon of ironies at sunset. There’s warning signs so irony tourists don’t go wandering around without a map (more…)
OK, huddle up, and take a knee.
I want to talk about team rivalries, and brace yourselves, team: This will not be pretty.
Many people have been taught to hate the Other Team at all costs. They’ve been shown – wrongly – that making excuses for themselves, and denying the good plays made by the opposite team, that this is a good thing. I’m here to tell you, it is not; it is divisive and self-destructive, and it harms our people more than any really bad call ever could. (more…)
Editor’s Note: This is another in our new series of guest columns on current events. Once again, here’s the infamous Rudyard “Duke” Milhaus, of the Sports Desk .
Huddle up, gather round, people!
There’s a new playbook being used. It’s not the prettiest set of plays ever to hit the field, but the Opposition started it and now everyone’s picking up on it, so we’re gonna have to learn it too. It’s called the “Fake News Play”.
“The Fake News doesn’t tell the truth.”
-President Donald Trump, CPAC speech, 24 Feb 2017
Once again, President Trump spoke out against the Fake News, this time at the CPAC conference at National Harbor. To be fair, it sounded a lot more powerful when he was talking. It sounded impressive, deeply meaningful, profound even. And then I read the words.
Trump sounds great in person. When you’re watching him with an open mind, he’s an incredibly powerful speaker — but he doesn’t say much. He’s a skilled orator who uses a third-grade vocabulary to convey simple ideas and make them seem powerful.
