Trump: The Hangover Begins

Posted on November 12, 2016

By Fred Reed All right, we have him. My reaction to Trump’s victory is barely of interest to me, and so it may be that the world is not waiting in quiet desperation for an account. I have no information on this matter from Ulan Bator or Sulawesi. Insofar as my reaction was that of […]

My Dream for the Election’s Outcome

Written by Gary North on November 5, 2016

I get to dream. Here is my dream. 1. Trump wins the popular vote, but Clinton wins in the electoral college by a few votes. 2. The vote is so close that in several states, there are recounts. 3. This stretches on for at least two weeks. 4. Clinton is declared the victor. 5. Huma […]

Donald or Hillary: What’s Your Fallback Plan?

Written by Gary North on November 5, 2016

If Trump wins, Bryan Cranston thinks America is broken bad. He says he will move to Canada. George Stephanopoulos’ wife says they will start looking at real estate in Australia. He has neither confirmed nor denied. Good for them. They are verbally serious. Maybe they won’t actually move. They would be walking away from tens […]

Two Podesta Emails the Media Do Not Mention

Posted on November 5, 2016

By Cassandra Fairbanks In perhaps the most disturbing Wikileaks release to date, Tony Podesta (John Podesta’s brother) is invited to a “Spirit Cooking” dinner with performance artist Marina Abramovic. Dinner with a famous artist might sound deeply mundane, but there is far more to this story. Abramovic, 69, is a fairly famous Serbian performance artist, […]

Politically Impotent Professors

Written by Gary North on November 5, 2016

I read a recent article on university professors. Its findings will cheer you up. MANY of the world’s most talented thinkers may be university professors, but sadly most of them are not shaping today’s public debates or influencing policies. There is nothing sad about this. American campuses have been run by political liberals ever since […]

A Great Two-Fer Ad: Trump and InfoWars

Written by Gary North on October 29, 2016

It’s an ad for Trump. It’s an ad for InfoWars. The guys at InfoWars produced it. It gets the ideas across: vote for Trump and follow InfoWars. I am a long-term connoisseur of ads. This is a good ad. Problem: if it comes true, this will hurt everyone’s renewals. Turnabout is fair play. Remember this? […]

The 2016 Political Cartoon That Gets It Right

Written by Gary North on October 29, 2016

Political cartoonists are among the most creative artists in the world. How do they do it, day after day? How does anyone come up with that many creative ideas? There have been hundreds of thousands of them over the years. They stretch back two centuries. The cartoons that Thomas Nast drew of New York City’s […]

Millennial Voters and Public Schools

Written by Gary North on October 29, 2016

You may have seen this video. It’s a variation of Jay Leno’s “Jaywalking” segments, except that this is on a college campus. It gets worse. This is from George Mason University, just outside the nation’s Capitol. The tip-off that something is seriously wrong is their failure to identify a stock photo of Ronald Reagan. Some […]

When Your Leader Is Stark, Raving Mad

Written by Gary North on October 29, 2016

Adolf Hitler was stark, raving mad. How do I define “mad”? This way: someone who is disconnected from reality. The trouble is, anyone can misinterpret reality. But when he gets re-elected, a leader reflects a disconnected electorate. Hitler did not get re-elected. He did not even get elected. Germans never voted the National Socialist Party […]
