Can we justify comparing a young socialist today to a young Hitler 100 years ago?

Politics – Down and DirtySocial Spasm

My column today at Real Clear Politics compares Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to Stalin, and her Green New Deal to his five-year plans that left millions dead. Stalin isn’t off-limits to those looking for historical comparisons, but for some reason Adolf Hitler generally is. Of course no one is saying that Ocasio-Cortez is either Stalin or Hitler.


Green New Deal is a 10-year countdown to death and despair — unless we kill it first!

Here’s my column today at Real Clear Politics on the danger of the Green New Deal and the woman assigned to sell it to us — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I usually omit the ending in order to steer my readers over to RCP, but in this case I’m running the full column in order not to

Trump defends Pirro; will Fox do the right thing and reinstate her?

Politics – Down and Dirty

I had somehow missed the story last week of how Judge Jeanine Pirro was being disowned by Fox News for her comments about sharia law and Rep. Ilhan Omar. Turns out that while I was praising Fox for defending Tucker Carlson from the Outrage Mob, the channel was backstabbing Pirro. Fox News actually pulled Pirro’s

Cultural revolutions and human devastation: Is America safe?

Politics – Down and Dirty

Two columns featured at Real Clear Politics this morning highlight the scary trend in American politics toward shaming and retribution. Victor Davis Hanson, as usual, provides a historical perspective on our human foibles, showing how cultures try to bury their past instead of learn from it. In “Waging War Against the Dead,” Hanson writes that:

Morris Dees fired by SPLC: A good first step, but don’t expect miracles

Politics – Down and Dirty

The law firm called the Southern Poverty Law Center has been running a racket for decades to harass conservative groups in order to milk millions of dollars from liberals who want to destroy dissent. The mastermind behind this racket is Morris Dees, who enriched himself many times over by promoting fear and hatred against conservatives.

Tucker Carlson teaches Republicans how to have a backbone — will they listen?

Politics – Down and Dirty

Great news that Tucker Carlson’s show was the highest rated show on cable Tuesday night as he continued to fight back against the Outrage Mob trying to destroy his career. Carlson is probably the smartest guy on cable news — he is certainly the most astute and aware. He loves to have liberals on his

GOP Senate betrays DJT — and the country— again

Politics – Down and Dirty

The Republican Party has once again proven itself to be an inadequate ally for President Trump as he does battle with the progressive agenda to destroy the United States of America. Inadequate? Let’s be blunt. The party leadership in Congress is treasonous. How exactly can the Republican controlled Senate vote to overturn the president’s emergency

Further thoughts on the persecution of Tucker Carlson

Politics – Down and Dirty

Media Matters is continuing its assault on Fox News host Tucker Carlson, but Carlson is vigorously fighting back, perhaps having learned a lesson from Donald J Trump that you never surrender to vermin or they will eat you alive. As Carlson correctly says, “The left will tolerate no criticism at all” and will try to

Tucker Carlson fights back against the Outrage Mob — as we all should!

Politics – Down and Dirty

The latest attack by Media Matters on Tucker Carlson happily gives me occasion to celebrate a February essay by Jack Cashill on “the death of irreverence.” Cashill’s topic was Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, who at that time looked like he might lose his job over a picture in his 1984 medical school yearbook that depicted
