Europe Votes

Europe Votes

Update: Kraut and Tea explains how Austria got here, and offers another possible explanation for Hofer’s loss.  Renzi resigns.  Landslide rejection. You can view the live results here.  Exit polls, for what they’re worth, suggest the Italian constitutional referendum is headed towards defeat.  In a depressing sign for the future, women voted for the...

Europe’s Rightward March

Europe’s Rightward March

Update: A thoughtful leftist analyzes the 1st round of France’s election.  The first round of primary voting for Les Républicains is complete and it looks like Nicolas Sarkozy’s bid to return to the Élysée Palace is over. For those of you who are Marine Le Pen fans, this might appear to be bad news, although the coronation of...

Speaking Truth To Power

Speaking Truth To Power

To the surprise of no one, the reporters, editors and publishers whose revolting fealty to Hillary Clinton, exposed in excruciating detail through Wikileaks, resulted in an historic loss for the Democratic Party have learned nothing from Tuesday’s Trumpslide. Instead of reflecting upon how media institutions rigging the primary process against Bernie Sanders, then conducting an...

Savage Truths

Update: Brilliant. Simply brilliant.  For me, Nigel Farage, as well as tens of millions of people throughout the world, EU tears are a thing of beauty. Something to be relished. The European Project has failed and there’s absolutely nothing the army of myopic Eurocrats in Brussels can do to nullify that reality, although they...

Attack On Abidjan

  The latest assault by practitioners of the Religion of Peace against the civilized world occurred yesterday on a beach resort in the Ivory Coast, approximately 25 miles from the capital Abidjan.

The Fix Is In (French Regional Elections)

The Fix Is In (French Regional Elections)

It would appear that the collusion between the left and the pseudo-right, i.e. left, has been successful, as the party of Marine Le Pen was shut out of regional elections this weekend in France. The tactical alliance between ostensible conservatives and socialists-unironically described as a democratic safety valve by Time Magazine-effectively guaranteed that the...

Islam’s Day Of Rage

Islam’s Day Of Rage

It seems like the world’s most peaceful religion just can’t keep itself out of the headlines these days. On the heels of repeated attempts to assassinate artists and writers, the foot soldiers of Allah meticulously murdered over 60 infidels yesterday in a spate of terror that stretched from Kuwait to France. Although the attack...

La Bestia

La Bestia

One of the overlooked aspects of this country’s problem dealing with illegal aliens is the subset of this population which comes from Central America, often at great risk to life and limb. The treacherous route these migrants take  north relies upon a network of freight trains known as La Bestia, (The Beast), or El...
