The Left’s Paradigm Shift

The left loves to talk about the path of progress as a never-ceasing arc of history. There is a linear progression to everything. One is either on the right side of history or an evil obstacle to inevitable progress. This is a hustle as Gaetano Mosca noted that most of the rationale of democracy promoters…

Secular Decline In University Enrollment

The university system was hit hard by covid. They had the lowest risk population for customers but commitment to removing Trump forced them to take the most extreme measures. This varied state by state and even university by university, but many closed early, went to online or hybrid schooling and now are demanding vaccination for…

Oh No Ukraine

It did not take long. Worrying about where the Deep State would start something, we missed Ukraine. It had been quiet for so long. Just a couple months into the Biden administration, suddenly, tensions are rising and cease fires are over. The Deep State wants a return to 2015 with everything picking up where it…

Gambling on Old Joe

Elections are fake, but we can still bet on them. The political betting markets are nothing new. They have been around for several election cycles now. If one were to apply some analysis outside the mainstream, one could have cleaned up since 2016. Simply following the predictions of Audacious Epigone or Ricky Vaughn in ’16,…

Creating the Problems You Fantasize About

Yesterday

“Can you do a quick recap like your Charlottesville essay?” That is an impossible request. That essay was looking back on a small event a year later. It was about a small Internet crowd that saw their era of fun end. The January 6th events in DC were what? A giant rally that ended with…

The 2020 Filter

In this, the year of our Lord 2020, we have see fissures erupt, lines harden or relationships firm. The effects of lockdowns, media psy-ops and pressure reveals who is clear headed and who is an overgrown child. This is not hyperbole. We live in a society that uses superlatives too often, and we can see…

Who Do We Wreck Next Deep State?

The deep state is flexing its fully integrated muscles right now. For the discerning news consumer, the hits keep on rolling. America quickly had a vaccine created to combat what is a bad flu, but it was slow rolled by the regulatory system. The pharmaceutical firms slowed down their procedures to delay announcing that a…

Defections and Offense

As the Biden team has taken the media announcement of his president-elect status as their green light, the team itself takes shape. It looks exactly like one would expect a DNC imposed administration would resemble. There are pieces of the war party (some in heels and skirts), long time lobbyists and private-public weasels and then…
