The Bookworm Beat 9/21/2016 — the “hurry up” edition and open thread

Trump has an ideology and it’s a good one. Trump has an actual plan that explains his appeal. How do I know this?  Because, for unclear reasons, Politico.com decided to engage in actual journalism. Rather than viewing Trump as Satan in the Church of Leftism, Joshua Mitchell, a Georgetown professor looked

The Bookworm Beat 9/13/16 — the “I feel deplorably faint” edition and open thread

I’m going to divide this post into “Hillary stuff” and everything else. Let’s go to town and have fun. Hillary stuff: Ah, Hillary’s “basket of deplorables.” It’s the gift that will keep giving and giving and giving. Scott Adams believes that the same people who feel guilty knocking her off

After the Orlando shooting, Leftists again fail to read the handwriting on the wall

Belshazzar was a great king who sneered at the Bible, partied decadently, and failed to read the handwriting on the wall when he might still have saved himself and his people.*  His story is the story of the American Left. For the entirely of the Obama presidency, the Left focuses

The Bookworm Beat 5/26/16 — the “day after hump day” edition

The migraine is fading, helped by a surprise three-hour nap, and my energy is returning. Yay!!! Now I can blog: Was losing good for Ted Cruz? I was really in it to win it for Ted Cruz. I continue to think he is the most principled conservative in American politics.

The Bookworm Beat 5/24/16 — the “world keeps turning” edition and open thread

I’ve switched migraine medicines and have been a little limp and dazed, but the migraines are passing and my energy is returning — so what better thing to do than write a round-up? No, more Muslims will not save us from the ones we already have.  Daniel Greenfield takes up

The Bookworm Beat 5/13/16 — the “to Trump or not to Trump” edition and open thread

I’ll be away all day tomorrow, first doing an activity with the kids, and then listening to this year’s best a cappella groups (although this wonderful group from Israel won’t be there). I therefore hope that this post gives you lots of interesting stuff to read on Saturday. Pro-Trump?  Anti-Trump?

The Bookworm Beat 4/21/16 — a round-up and open thread

My take on the decision to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 in place of Andrew Jackson?  I find all this change and revisionism both silly and expensive but, having said that, here’s my position:  They’re replacing the racist, slave-supporting, Indian-killing founder of the Democrat party with a gun-toting, Republican black

The Bookworm Beat 4/18/16 — the “tax day” edition and open thread

Yes, it’s tax day, and what better day could there be to talk about all the distressing, expensive, and scary foolishness in the world? Ripping off taxpayers with climate change craziness.  Today has been a “suffer the climate change” day for me, so it’s appropriate to open with a riff

[VIDEO] Dennis Prager speaks about the evil ascendant in the world today

Dennis Prager spoke recently at a Christians United For Israel event.  (CUFI is a wonderful organization, bless its existence.) This five-minute excerpt starts with Prager discussing the fact that, unlike previous evil regimes, ISIS boasts about its horrors, because doing so isn’t embarrassing, it’s good advertising. From that starting point,

The Bookworm Beat 2/19/16 — the “it’s the end of the world as we know it” edition and open thread

There is no sense of normalcy in the world for me when a committed old communist and a reality TV star are the leading contenders in America’s upcoming presidential election. My round-up addresses some of the craziness, as well as lots of other stuff. Debunking Ted Cruz myths.  Like me,

The Bookworm Beat 2/9/16 — the “nothing about New Hampshire here” edition and open thread

All of the posts I’ll link to pre-date today’s New Hampshire primary. This is a NH primary-free zone. You might find it refreshing. And now, to the good stuff: Trump could destroy conservativism in America for decades.  I think Charles Krauthammer hits the ball out of the park on this
