New study proves Washington, DC, is the psychopath capital of the world. We really didn’t need a study to prove that when we have Maxine Waters.
Think that’s catty? From the article: the psychological definition of a psychopath is “a person with a particular collection of antisocial traits, including a powerful sense of spite and an inability to consider the welfare of others.”
TRENDING: Happy Independence Day America
Excellent piece by Roger L. Simon on why the left is having a nervous breakdown in public. Hint: the fault lies not in Donald Trump, but in themselves.
Simon’s observation that they are going insane at the realization of their dwindling influence is born out in several recent news stories. We’ve read of Hispanics and African-Americans who are waking up to the fact that despite the left’s constant howls of “RACIST,” Trump’s tenure has resulted in the lowest unemployment numbers both groups have enjoyed…ever.
Meanwhile, Asian-Americans are also starting to rebel against discrimination in liberal institutions such as Ivy League colleges. At the link, UC-Berkeley law Prof. John Yoo calls on fellow Asian-Americans to reassess their allegiance to the Democratic Party, pointing out that they own many of the small businesses being helped by Trump’s tax cut, while liberal Harvard is using the same tactics against Asian-Americans that were once used to keep Jews out.
Even the New York Times recently admitted that it had no words to describe how great the economy is doing. More recently, the Times lamented that the increasingly strident attacks on President Trump not only aren’t repelling his supporters, they’re making them distrust the media and support him all the more. (I’d rather link to Don Surber’s entertaining article on that story, but you can find the link to the Times piece in it, if you really want to torture yourself.)

As I watch the remaining leftists rant and scream, and attempt to foment hatred and violence against people who are just trying to dine quietly at restaurants, and yelling the F-word at the Tony Awards and somehow being stunned that this is making them less and less popular with most Americans, I keep thinking of a scene in the movie, “Mars Attacks.” A belligerent general is struck with a Martian shrink ray, and the tinier he gets, the louder and angrier his threats become, until he’s finally squashed like a bug. If the rapidly-shrinking left in America doesn’t want to end up with the same fate, they’d better start growing up fast.
At this link, a terrific piece by Ed Driscoll, explaining why it’s embarrassing, insulting and self-aggrandizing for the consequence-free anti-Trump loudmouths to name themselves after the French Resistance and compare Trump to Hitler. He reminds us of what the genuine Resistance risked and the price they paid for standing up to real Nazis.
