Submission

I was walking Dog down by the lake yesterday when I crossed paths with a couple of teenaged boys. They’d been walking towards me but had stopped at a sign that had been up so long I’d stopped seeing it. They were looking it over and talking about it as Dog and I strolled by…

More Than Just an Old Sweet Song

“Imagine,” Louise Brodthagen Jensen asks, “standing in line for many hours to vote. You’d obviously put a pretty high premium on volunteers coming with food and drink so that you can last until you get your fingers on a ballot.” Imagine! “But in the U.S. state of Georgia, handing out free food and drinks to…

Biden’s Magnificent Moment

Last night Joe Biden finally had an opportunity to showcase his vision to America and the world. It was the longest an incoming president had gone without a press conference in a hundred years. Anticipation was high. Expectations were low. Danish media haven’t made a very big deal out of it. Lashed out at China…

She Blinded Me with Science, Part Deux

Exactly two months ago today, I wrote about Yale forensic psychiatrist Bandy X. Lee (“She Blinded Me with Science“), a neurotic obsessive whose neurotic obsession was given a stamp of scientific approval by a fairly fawning article in Scientific American. She had diagnosed Donald Trump as psychotic, and everyone who voted for him as suffering…

A Sad Case

While the U.S. correspondents for most of the establishment European media have been covering the crisis on America’s southern border, to the extent that many of them run the risk of committing actual journalism, DR’s own ace correspondent Steffen Kretz has bigger fish to fry: BigTech headed for a reckoning: A couple of “likes” drew…

Boomerang Principle II

Back in January I wrote about the Boomerang Principle: “What you do to your adversaries today, they will do to you tomorrow.” (I even offered an alternative phrasing: “The most important teacher of your adversary is you.”) A newly released Campus Reform video helps to illustrate just how damaging the consequences of the Boomerang Principle can…

Filibusters and Filly Bustiers

Astronomical spring began today in the northern hemisphere. I’m glad for that, because Danish “traditional” spring began on the first of March and did absolutely nothing. Winter refused to vacate the premises. As I noted in a post last fall, “It’s not the indifference to astronomical science [by the ‘traditional’ Danish seasons] that bothers me,…

The Biden Treatment

There’s a fascinating article in today’s Berlingske: Analysis: If Biden really wants to insult Putin, he should call him “toothless,” Emil Rottbøll, Berlingske.dk, March 19 Rottbøll is Berlingske’s Russian correspondent, and the article examines the stupid kerfuffle of words between the Russian and American leaders that culminated in Putin’s having just yesterday challenged Biden to…

If You Unbuild It, They Will Come

In accordance with his campaign promises and the will of the American public, Donald Trump attempted during his time in office to shore up the nation’s southern border to reduce and discourage illegal immigration. I mention the support of the American people because you’d never know it from the media, but there is (and always…

Waitin’ for Some Splainin’

Denmark’s Health Minister Magnus Heunicke has some splainin’ to do… but I’m not holding my breath for his ‘splanation. As I mentioned in a post last week, the Minister pushed the Folketing’s Epidemic Committee to approve his call for mandatory virus testing of the residents of Vollsmose, an immigrant-majority community beleaguered by a spike in…
