The fauxtrage over President Trump’s continued criticism of the black-robed, white-wigged set works as Exhibit A illustrating how judges don't like their judges. The Ninth Circuit Court, and earlier Judge James Robart, slapped down a Trump executive order. The president slapped back on social media. Read my column@ the American Spectator on how judges behaving like politicians get treated by the public, and even presidents, like politicians.
Sports fans hate Tom Brady because he wins and their team doesn’t, because they imagine he acquired his Super Bowl rings through James Bond tactics, because he married a supermodel, because he makes more money in a weekend than they do in a year, because his politeness masks a predator, and, primarily, just because. Sports journalists hate him because he voted for Donald Trump. Read my article @ Breitbart on how behind every word scribbler lurks a world saver.
The recent history of conservatives and the Supreme Court looks a lot like Charlie Brown kicking at the football, the Washington Generals hypnotized by Meadowlark Lemon spinning a basketball, or George McFly wearing a kick-me sign on his back in the halls of Hill Valley High School. Read my column @ the American Spectator on how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell changed all this.
You could almost hear the distant din of the funeral-home Wurlitzer. “There’s no other word to describe it—this is a surprise,” Chris Matthews informed MSNBC viewers at 10:35 p.m. Three minutes later Eugene Robinson noted, “The polling seemed to indicate something different than tonight.” Read my article @ Breitbart on how the people who mocked Donald Trump ultimately fell into a state of shock by Donald Trump.
The monsters clowns are due on Maple Street. Mobs pursued clowns after midnight and a man shot an AR-15 in the air after imagining that he saw a clown this past week. We used to laugh at clowns. Now clowns laugh at us. Read my article @ the American Spectator on how clowns act as a mirror to our ridiculous faces.
Guys who no longer stand out on the field sit down on the bench. That’s what Colin Kaepernick did on Friday night in riding the pine during the national anthem. For two minutes every Sunday, he wants us to think why he sits. And he does this because he wants us to forget why he sits for the other three hours. Read my article @ Breitbart Sports.
A Hillary Clinton campaign video featuring Confederate flags and goobers in white sheets ominously informs, “If Trump wins, they could be running the country.” Read my column @ the American Spectator on how the Democrats, from FDR nominating a Klansman to the Supreme Court to Robert Byrd serving as the party's leader in the Senate, deserve the label of the party of white sheets and burning crosses.
Gabby Douglas made America proud by again winning a gold medal at the Olympics. Then some Americans criticized her for standing at attentioon rather than placing hand over heart during the national anthem. When did this become a thing? Read my column @ the American Spectator on the only people creepier than those who desecrate the flag being those who deify it.
The opening ceremonies at the Summer Olympics worked as a terrific distraction. Brazil suffers through its worst economy since the 1930s. Its president faces impeachment. And the murder rate bests (worsts?) every nation on the planet. But the most populous country in the Southern Hemisphere can really put on a show. Read my article @ Breitbart on Brazil showcasing a 12-year-old rapping about racism, overbearing environmentalist sermonizing, and a pseudohistorical hero befitting of the whole multiculturalist narrative at the opening ceremonies.
Americans like their politicians to engage in idiocy after periods of long reflection rather than upon impulse. This helps explain the media pig-pile on Donald Trump for talking before thinking but praise of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for acting foolishly after much consultation, contemplation, and deliberation. Read my column @ the American Spectator on how Trump's foolish talk relegates Obama and Clinton's stupid actions to below the fold.
