• Daniel Andrews is now world famous

    I know others have been there before me but this is such a clown show it really needs repeating. Daniel Andrews not only makes it to Tucker Carlson but is featured in The Daily Mail as well.  The world is laughing at us thanks to Dan & Brett's science. pic.twitter.com/p4WDISij5a — Rukshan Fernando (@therealrukshan) August 17,…

  • Mater’s Musings #3: “I see dead people!”…or do I?

  • Whither the Right? or Wither the Right.

    This is the first of what I hope will be a series of posts on the future of the Right following the collapse of the old Right positions that have held sway, really, since the 1970s. Today, Arky has the floor. What is the Right? It is a widely assorted collection of people who can…

  • Open Thread – Sunday Evening 15 Aug 2021

    N.B. If you’re commenting here for the first time it goes into automoderation. Once I approve it it should appear immediately and without delay from then on. Also, can people let me know if they like or dislike the nested comment format. I think it saves having to quote replies to existing comments as you…
