Joe Biden’s Assault on Democracy

Let’s play the game by the same set of rules being used by Joe Biden. Any tactic he’s allowed to use, we’re allowed to use. Whatever heights of hyperbole he soars to, we’ll fly right alongside him. Whatever depths of mud and slime he’s willing plumb, we’ll wallow in it. You’ve been warned. Joe Biden…

Spooks

Back in May of 2021, I wrote a post (“Spies without Masters“) about the revelation that Danish intelligence services had been cooperating with America’s National Security Administration (NSA) by allowing it to tap into internet trunk lines on Danish soil. Europe was shocked, shocked to learn of this. The peoples of Europe were so shocked,…

Make Government Irrelevant Again

My core political beliefs can’t be stated any more succinctly than they’re stated in the Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That…

Lie, Smear, Rinse, Repeat

In an article that’s supposed to be about Joe Biden’s address to the nation on January 6, DR proves once again that there’s no Democratic Party talking point they’re unwilling to pass on to the Danish public as a matter of established fact. Correspondent: Biden’s speech was the first direct accusation from “the top” against…

On Knowing What We Know We Don’t Know

Writing about temptation, C.S. Lewis observed that “you find out the strength of the German army by fighting against it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down.” Lewis was debunking the stupid but popular notion that good people don’t know…

Bullet the Blue Sky

I got a rifle last fall. Nothing fancy: a used Parker Hale 30-06, off the Lauritz auction website. At this point it’s just a conversation piece because I haven’t yet had a chance to take it out to a range and fire it. That’s partly because I haven’t had a lot of free time, but…

Another Day, Another Datum

Statens Serum Institut (SSI) works under the authority of the Danish Ministry of Health. Their primary function is, in their own words, “to ensure preparedness against infectious diseases and biological threats as well as control of congenital disorders.” Their importance and visibility have obviously been elevated in Denmark since the start of 2020. As I…

Resolute

It’s the last day of the year. In a matter of mere hours, the annus horribilis 2021 will get packed away into the sealed box that is the past, and we’ll all advance, time zone by time zone, into the unwritten world of 2022. (Those of us who live according to Gregorian calendar, anyway. A…

Misleadership

According to DR, Statens Serum Institut (SSI) has promised “more precise numbers” for corona admissions after the New Year. The added precision will come in the form of a distinction between inpatient admissions of patients due to corona and admissions of patients with corona. “More precise,” in this case, appears to mean “correct.” SSI is…
