News You Can’t Use

In a headline item yesterday I linked to a B.T. story about the Project Veritas videos released earlier in the week that had revealed a CNN technical director bragging about the many ways in which the network actively, deliberately, and aggressively misled their viewers to damage Donald Trump, support Joe Biden, and steer the national…

Not So Sweet Emotion

Berlingske.dk put out another piece of American leftwing agitprop today. It gets off to a rough start with a confusing headline: Blacks raging over charge against officer: “He was brutally murdered.” The brutally murdered “he” was of course Daunte Wright; the charged officer was Kim Potter, the officer who shot and killed him. The headline…

Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never Ends

“Imagine a mask strapped to a human face. Forever.” Berlingske reports today that Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was asked at a party leader debate on Tuesday if she really couldn’t guarantee that all restrictions would be lifted once all Danes had been vaccinated: No one can. Because we don’t know what kind of world we’re…

Sauron’s Lazy Eye

Two big stories out of America got a lot of coverage in Danish media today: the “police-involved shooting” of Daunte Wright in a Minneapolis suburb (and its inevitable aftermath), and news that 46% of Americans would support Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a presidential candidate. Both are American tragedies. Wright’s death is in itself a…

A Whole New World

Like many other bloggers, I don’t always have something useful, funny, or interesting to say. Unlike many other bloggers, however, when I find myself with nothing useful, funny, or interesting to say, I remain silent. It’s a healthy practice, and one that I wish more bloggers observed, but it’s not very helpful for a little…

China Syndrome

There appears to be unanimity among the western nations that China is doing dastardly things to its Uighur population, even if there’s no agreement at all on how to spell Uighur. For example, in early March a panel of 50 “experts” (sorry, experts, but you’ve earned those scare quotes) determined that the Chinese government “bears…

The Biggest Cartel in History

Joe Biden’s so-called “Infrastructure” plan, with a price tag equivalent to about 5% of all the money that exists in the world right now, includes a provision to increase the corporate tax rate up from 21% to 28%. If math isn’t your strong point, that’s an an increase of 33%. One of the many problems…

Women and Children, Justice and Mercy

One of the burning issues in Denmark right now is the fate of seven particular women and their nineteen children. The issue is hot because it’s one of those rare questions that isn’t easily dispensed with a political slogan or hashtag: the debate crosses party lines. It crosses theological lines. It crosses philosophical lines. It…

Insurrectionist

I sincerely hope the story will soon be updated and retitled, but as of 11:00 this morning of Saturday, April 3, DR.dk is running with this: Betjent død efter angreb foran Kongressen i USA: Gerningsmand skudt af politiet, Oliver Batchelor, DR.dk, April 2 I normally translate Danish headlines into English directly, but wanted to keep…

Murder by Numbers

This is not an ordinary blog post. It’s a reference post: one that I will post once, reference frequently, and update periodically. The stats are presented without commentary of any kind; my own observations can be found at the bottom.
