Someone in a conversation today said she had learned that there was some kind of other cause, and I couldn’t pursue it as the subject wandered off but it sounded like a testing of a weapon. She said a cluster of houses had been “targeted” and were not at the edge of any ongoing fire […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America pray for the best in Venezuela as opposition leader Juan Guaido urges the military to rise up against the corrupt, socialist Maduro regime.  They also roll their eyes as Stacey Abrams still plays the victim card of voter suppression while announcing she will not be running for U.S. Senate in 2020.  And they condemn the attempt to cook up a fake sex scandal targeting Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg.

Is it Just Me?

 

When it comes to the still extant Russian collusion narrative, the left and the Legacy Media (I know, I know) claim as their most solid evidence the meeting between Don Jr. and Natalia Veselnitskaya (hereafter known as the lawyer, because I’m not spelling that again). I say that not only is the meeting not evidence of collusion, but that it is actually far more effective as evidence against collusion.

Stay with me here, because I’m pretty sure this makes sense…

Last week I watched the Tom Cruise movie American Made, which is an admittedly fabriciated account of the life of smuggler/pilot Barry Seal, who allegedly graduated from TWA to arms running for the CIA to drug smuggling for the Colombians, but when you check the wikipedia page, nearly all of it seems to have been […]

An Open Letter from Ex Tex-Mex, Vigilant Consumer

 

Dear Belluminati,

You might be masquerading as a hilariously gimmicky marketing campaign for cheap fake Mexican food, but I’m onto you. Taco Bell might like us to believe that the Belluminati are the world’s least secret “secret society”, one that anyone with a buck and a hankering for el-cheapo meato frito can join. But I know what you’re really about. You’re the same old Illuminati, mocking us by “hiding in plain sight”!!!

Richard Epstein reacts to the indictments brought against Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, as well as to a guilty plea from former Trump aide George Papadopoulos.

On Bellwethers and Blinders

This past November 10th, my wife and I were in a small, country diner having breakfast with our friend, a Cold War Intelligence hero. He had served under President Reagan, so we were keenly interested in knowing his thoughts on the presidential election of two days before. However, as our friend was regaling us with his analysis, something happened, a bellwether; an exceedingly unsettling one.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America react to North Korea’s release of an American hostage, express concern over troubling reports of his health condition, and marvel at how former NBA star Dennis Rodman seems to provide intelligence on North Korea that our own spies can’t uncover. They also discuss the rumors NewsMax CEO Chris Ruddy stirred up during a PBS interview about President Trump possibly firing special prosecutor Robert Mueller. And they question Megyn Kelly’s decision to host conspiracy theorist Alex Jones of Infowars on her new Sunday night show on NBC.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are once again relieved that Hillary Clinton is not president after she once again blames everyone and everything but herself for losing to Donald Trump. They are also puzzled as a flurry of lobbying in favor of the climate deal takes place after Trump supposedly decided to withdraw from it. And they react to former Vice President Joe Biden starting a new Super PAC and fueling speculation that he may run for president in 2020 in a primary that could feature many elderly Democrats.
