Let Us Now Praise Reptilians

I never heard of Durek Verrett until I stumbled over this article today: He’s the boyfriend of the Norwegian princess and a self-described shaman. Now he’s outed himself as a reptileLiv Almer, Berlingske.dk, Oct 6 Before we dive into the crazy mixed-up world of Durek (né Derek) Verrett, here’s a quick Wikipedia summary of his royal girlfriend:…

The Phantom Menace

G.K. Chesteron opens up The Superstition of Divorce with a passage I think I’ve already quoted somewhere on this blog: It is still in some strange way considered unpractical to open up inquiries about anything by asking what it is. I happen to have, however, a fairly complete contempt for that sort of practicality; for…

The Restoration Will Be Unsourced

More and more damning information is coming about Dr. Fauci, the Wuhan lab leak theory, and the mechanics of statecraft applied to the suppression of scientific inquiry, even from some piously leftwing outlets. The border crisis continues unabated. Mere weeks after Eastern European hackers shut down a major gas pipeline and caused gas shortages across…

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…

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…

If It Prosper, None Dare Call It Treason

I’m hearing a lot of crazy talk these days. I’m hearing that the 2020 presidential election was rigged by a massive, heavily-monied, and carefully coordinated national organization of businesses, unions, activists, special interest groups, social media oligarchs, and political operators determined to prevent Trump from being re-elected. I thought we’d be over all that by…

Politiken Goes Coup Coup

The Politiken editorial board wants the U.S. Ambassador called in because “there’s a coup attempt in progress.” I got a breaking news alert saying so on my phone the night of January 4th. They also put out a Tweet: The text of the Tweet: “Denmark and others must speak up.” The text of the headline:…

Vinter kommer

Another amped-up exposé on the dread QAnon conspiracy came out today, this time from TV2. I dealt with QAnon a while back, when Berlingske ran a feature on the weird conspiracy, and I don’t want to spend more time in that particular rabbit hole. The world of today is, like the worlds of yesterday and…

Formørkende forklaringer

Another day ending in -y, another Danish media “explainer” piece to help ensure the perpetual befuddlement of Denmark on all things American. This time it’s my old employer, the ostensibly “borgerlig” Berlingske. “FBI, coronavirus og kongresmedlemmer: Sådan vokser konspirationsteorierne i USA.”  It caught my eye because I thought someone at Berlingske was on the ball. …
