Political discourse.

I noted at some cafe or other a pin pricked notice for a lecture from a bunch of… Maoists apparently…  against “Post-Modernism” and Identity politics at the university. And they’re on against the Frankfurt School… (Take that Herbert Marcuse!)… cultural marxism, getting into the w

I mostly quit reading the Portland Mercury once “One Day at a Time” passed on.  And though there’s nothing much different in the replacement, the latest edition has a political point worth commenting on.

Joseph Biden — rusty old weather vane Mayor Bernie Sanders expresses his angst in memos. Call me crazy, I don’t want a “Spiritual-guru” as President. Kamala Harris “re-sets” her campaign.  Well, you do it now, don’t you, otherwise if you did it 2 weeks before Iowa it’d reek o

Ron Paul weighs in, and is throwing his support for the Democratic Primary to… Tulsi Gabbord.  I think Paul may have once egged on Dennis Kucinich, so we’re around the same basic location with Gabbord. Foreign policy — the non intervention — trumps economics.  I suppose age trumps some things, as G

I.  So.  Ramsey Clark chimed in with a comment, condolences.  I guess that makes him the highest profile for this — but again, we can place Clarke roughly analogous on his position visa vie Larouche at the end of the 1980s with where Roger Stone had stood 2017-2018.  Roger Stone hasn’t said anything. “I fe

In its array of “readings” this month, Harpers Magazine includes a list of “shocking” things abounding various Political candidates of 2018’s political season.  One of which was a nazi swastika. To clarify, the swastika was in the background, in a public school display of various historical ph

Can Andrew Yang slice into the “alt right” support? … and what does this smear even mean? I will point out the “totality of politics” thing isn’t a necessary feature of the current moment.  It’s you, not me.  Except you have to dodge it yourself. A “check your privilegeR

It’s a little weird that the National Review seems to have just now discovered the existence of “TERF”s, “trans-exclusionary radical feminists”.  Or maybe the weird thing is that in this article on current politics of trans-genderedness, when they swerve about and place the comments of some &#

“So horrible to watch the massive fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.  Perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it out.

1.  Polls show Joseph Biden strengthened in position despite — or, maybe in a way because of, the streaming of his tendency to touch down on women over the years.  (Notable in that some of those photographed brush away the controversy and are irked that they become part of the issue — “it’s just Jo

A few weeks ago, I tripped over a stray comment in a theater review in the Willamette Week, telling of… something pernicous in our liberal / left.  That puritanism which sits there.

Why is Pete Buttigieg enjoying a “moment”?  Well, he’s 0ut of Washington.  Theoretically, as mayor of a middle sized city, is “doing” some “things” “productive”-wise. It’s a bit of what Howard Dean enjoyed against a bunch of Senators going into 2004, except ther
