Todd Gregory and Erik Gregory, The Thousand-Year Progressive Reich

By Todd Gregory and Erik Gregory In the movie Jaws, the Roy Scheider character (Chief Brody) famously declares “we’re gonna need a bigger boat.”  With today’s Democrat party, they’re going to need a much bigger clown car. Democrat “thought leaders,” influencers, politicos, and voters all speak the same progressive patois — sustainability, equity, intersectionality, cultural appropriation, white fragility, and of course racism.  United in kneejerk conformity, they have all mastered the vernacular of victimhood and meaningless platitudes. Bumper sticker slogans abound, and yard signs — science is real; love is love —…

Bougiecrats are headed for a fall-of-communism-style collapse

Toby Rogers Sensing defeat they are lashing out in all sorts of weird ways Background and context As far back as 2001, Democratic stalwarts John Judis and Ruy Teixeira began making the case, to anyone who would listen, that demographic trends in the U.S. (e.g. immigration and higher birthrates in the Latino population) would lead to a semi-permanent Democratic majority in government. Their book, The Emerging Democratic Majority created a cottage industry of pollsters and political scientists who showed, with fancy charts and graphs, how Democrats, particularly Progressive Democrats, were about to be in…

David Sirota, The Democrats are Trying to Lose

David Sirota How party leaders learned to stop worrying and love losing to GOP fascists. [Editor’s note: What I find fascinating about this article is that the author, David Sirota, is a true-believer that the Democrats are the “good guys” and the Republicans the “bad”, when the cases he adduces that the DEMs are trying to throw the election represent what the party has become.] Cognitive dissonance is one of the defining traits of American politics, but with this weekend’s blow against the Build Back Better bill, we’ve now reached an inflection…

Paul Craig Roberts, Why Countries Collapse

Paul Craig Roberts Dmitry Orlov and Vladimir Putin believe the US is failing, because the US government, in Putin’s words, is “making sure-footed strides directly along the path of the Soviet Union.” These strides are, in Orlov’s words: “exorbitant debt, problems in the energy sector and unreformable political systems mired in corruption, their elites delusional in their feelings of omnipotence. And now comes a truly eerie analogy: the powder keg that detonated under the USSR was ethnic nationalism and separatism; and the powder keg that is currently detonating under the…

Mike Palecek, Reflecting on the Revolution from My Garage

Mike Palecek So, yeah, I’m sittin’ here at the kitchen table worryin’ about if there’s still enough time to get my boat out on the lake for ice fishing. And other stuff, getting the dishes done, at least started, get them soaking. Being a perfectionist, I usually like to let them soak for two or three days. See, I am in my first week of retirement and well … And of course, I’m writing a new best-selling book what else would I do. And I’m supposed to complete or at…
