Random thoughts on the passing scene.

Iran has officially begun restricting U.N. nuclear inspections in said country. No doubt this means President Biden, whose foreign policy is weaker than a newborn kitten, is considering sending a large pallet of cash to the Persian nation in the dead of night.

President Biden set a land speed record in cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline that would have benefitted America and Canada. In a disturbing act of useful idiocy, however, Biden seems less inclined to make an effort to halt the pro-Russia Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Democrats’ efforts to get television carriers to cancel conservative news outlets is part of a plan to do just that and then claim — no matter how cynically — it’s not censorship because the state isn’t directly suppressing free speech in violation of the First Amendment.

Recent unsavory revelations about the Biden family make the Trump family look like “The Waltons.”

Are we still supposed to “believe all women” in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo?

On COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci has more positions than the “Kama Sutra.” 

One wonders if kids playing instruments in small enclosures (see the photo below) means we’ve hit peak stupid when it comes to COVID-19.

A recent article in Scientific American bemoaning the use of the term “quantum supremacy” because of its alleged racist overtones is the kind of nonsense that, if allowed to continue, will doom Western civilization.

Billionaire Bill Gates — who wants everyone to eat synthetic meat and has plans to spray the atmosphere with dust to block out the sun — is slowly morphing into a James Bond villain right before our eyes.

Madonna’s ridiculous claim she is being oppressed by the patriarchy must have Helen Reddy spinning in her grave.

Now that anthropomorphic tuber Mr. Potato Head has been rendered gender fluid — just Potato Head now, maybe — how long before Mr. Microphone and Mr. Coffee get the same treatment?

It’s only a matter of time before “Kindergarten Cop” is cancelled because of this scene.

Things have gotten so bad in Seattle that you can now get a good deal on a kilo of cocaine at a thrift shop.

The following observation by Frank Chodorov is inspiring: “The American State…[was] midwifed by a coterie of men unusually wise in the history of political institutions and committed to the safeguarding of the infant from the mistakes of its predecessors.”

This observation, also from Mr. Chodorov, regarding the inevitable growth of the leviathan that is government is more depressing in nature: “The metamorphosis of the American State from an apparently harmless establishment to an interventionary machine as powerful as that of Rome at its height took place within a century and a half.”

Yes, the author is fully aware he is over-relying on these “Random Thoughts” columns, which are easier (and more fun) to write than a single-subject effort.
