Daniel Hannan: Fascism and Communism: Sister Ideologies (Video)

Saturday, June 20th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

Of course. But as Hannan wrote last year in the London Telegraph, “The greatest cultural victory of the Left has been to disregard the Nazi-Soviet Pact:” Why do we downplay that memory? Largely because it doesn’t fit with what happened later. When Hitler attacked the USSR – to the utter astonishment of Stalin, who initially […]

Friday, June 19th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

In 1977′s Annie Hall, Woody Allen memorably satirized the differences between the cultures of Los Angeles and New York, tropes that exist to this day. And while New Yorkers look down upon L.A. culture with a certain amount of justified bemusement, high tech residents of Silicon Valley observe the patched-together technological infrastructure of New York […]

Friday, June 19th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

Back in April, during one of their GLoP podcasts on Ricochet.com, Jonah Goldberg, Rob Long and John Podhoretz explored the fables of the Rolling Stone rape article, Columbia’s Mattress Girl, and the general tendency of college campuses to be hotbeds of false accusations of rape, racism, and other fever swamp delusions: PODHORETZ: But it doesn’t […]

Thursday, June 18th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

California? No, in this case, it’s North Korea, Walter Russell Mead writes at the American Interest. After linking to a BBC report on the Hermit State’s H20 woes, as equally avoidable as California’s, Mead responds: The North Korean state will likely do what it normally does: pass blame while glorifying itself and continuing to subjugate […]

“It’s official: Brian Williams is moving to MSNBC and Lester Holt will formally replace him as ‘NBC Nightly News’ anchor, NBC News and MSNBC chairman Andrew Lack announced today,” showbiz bible Variety reports; an appropriate source considering both the Orwellian nature of the Big Three’s TV news operations, and Williams’ desire to transform himself from […]

Quotes of the Day

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

Every month another story emerges from California that makes out-of-staters think, “Now will those Democrat voters get it?” Then the state sends another batch of leftists to Sacramento to pass more job-killing, life-denying restrictions on their everyday activities. But the current crisis isn’t merely bad economic theory or social justice activism; a state filled with […]

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

“I don’t know that I’ve ever read a book quite as eye-opening as Michael Oren’s Ally, the bestselling historian’s stunning new memoir of his four years as Israel’s ambassador to the United States,” John Podhoretz writes at Commentary. “For what Oren has written is an account of serving as a diplomat during a Cold War […]

The Progressive Death of Comedy

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

“Everything comes down to power: who has it, who defines it, who wants it,” Anthony Sacramone writes in a potent essay at Intercollegiate Review: In the ’60s, “political” comics shared a wink and a nod with fans as to who was due a beat-down, a comeuppance, a reversal of fortune. The power was Johnson or Nixon, […]

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

The Left’s cycle of victimhood appears to be in freefall and accelerating towards the abyss rapidly these days, doesn’t it? Let’s review: The Rolling Stone campus rape case that wasn’t. Oppressed Mattress Girl who doubles down by releasing a sex tape. Rachel Dolezal reliving James Whitmore’s Black Like Me B-movie. Finally, it’s come to this: […]

Trading Places

Monday, June 15th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

“Good question! Laura Ingraham wonders what Rachel Dolezal has in store for her Today Show interview,” Twitchy notes. I really don’t care what sort of train wreck pyschobabble emerges from Dolezal’s mouth at this late date tomorrow. What I’ll be curious to study, after NewsBusters, Mediaite or another Website that monitors the MSM has the transcript […]

Rachel Dolezal and the Left’s World of Make Believe

Monday, June 15th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

In “Rachel Dolezal, Ethnic Politics and the World of Make Believe,” Peter Wehner of Commentary writes: “Rachel has wanted to be somebody she’s not.

A President in Free-Fall Sleeps Through a Cyber Pearl Harbor

Monday, June 15th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

Not surprisingly, PJM alumnus Jennifer Rubin is much more aware of how Mr. Obama’s personal existential crisis has worldwide ramifications than Maureen Dowd, whose column we deconstructed in the previous post, and to her credit, Jennifer manages to chart “A presidency in free-fall” without resorting to pretentious T.S. Eliot references: And so the remainder of […]

MoDo Misses It By That Much

Monday, June 15th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

“Obama’s Flickering Greatness” is the latest rumination by Maureen Dowd: ON Saturday mornings, I love to watch reruns of the TV Western “The Rifleman.” Each show is a little moral fable, with Chuck Connors’s widowed rancher and crack shot, Lucas McCain, teaching his son, Mark, about actions and consequences. If you neglect to do this […]

Saturday, June 13th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

With Fox News, Rupert Murdoch created a product that filled a niche — half the country, as the old line invariably attributed to Charles Krauthammer goes. At NewsBusters, Jeffrey Lord writes that Murdoch is “The Man Who Broke the Iron Grip of Liberal Media in America:” My favorite Rupert Murdoch story? It goes like this. Murdoch […]

‘Reductio ad Absurdum Land Speed Record’

Saturday, June 13th, 2015 - by Ed Driscoll

For the starboard half of the Blogosphere, Rachel Dolezal is the gift that keeps on giving, including this brilliant juxtaposition by James Taranto in his latest “Best of the Web Today” column at the Wall Street Journal: ● “Imagine the reaction if a young white man suddenly declared that he was trapped in the wrong […]
