Moocher Fails to Get Free Luxe Dinner, Pens Think Piece Years Later

Peter Thiel laughs at your demands for free food, moochers (AP)

A few years back, a writer for the New York Times who is now a special correspondent for Vanity Fair went to a “salon” at billionaire (and American hero) Peter Thiel’s house. The writer starved himself all day because he figured the wealthy investor would be offering tons of awesome food to the intellectuals and billionaires and CEOs and, um, journalists he had invited to chit chat. “Thiel, I assumed, would be presiding over some sort of gluttonous feast,” Nick Bilton writes. “I presumed that chefs had been at work for days glazing carrots with a thyme-honey citrus sauce, preparing succulent Thomas Keller–esque chicken.”

Who Said It: The Journal of American Greatness, or Paleocon Diary?

His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, and Harry Jaffa.

Paleocon Diary is a hilarious parody blog in which are recorded the works and days of one “John M. Harris.” He is a convert to Russian Orthodoxy and American Conservative subscriber who hates neoconservatives, Likudniks, money-changers, and the bourgeoisie, struggles with leading his family amidst the moral waste-heap of contemporary liberalism, and exhibits an unsettling preoccupation …

Adam Carolla

This looks like a good and important documentary: The simple answer to the titular question is “no.” We live in an age when many people think comedy serves only one purpose, to promote the various causes of liberalism and leftwing thinking. This is why there are constant exhortations to “not punch down” and “punching down” …

Donald Trump Versus American Exceptionalism

i can think of one way that donald trump is exceptional

Sometimes I get the sense that Donald Trump is not a real person but an algorithm designed to make every Republican who supports him look like a giant hypocrite. For instance, I’m old enough to remember when the right was annoyed with President Obama for not believing strongly enough in the idea of American exceptionalism. Sure, …

Here are nine reasons why. 1) Youth Roger Clinton is turning 60 this year, which means he is much closer to the mean age of presidents at their inauguration—55—than either Hillary or Donald Trump.

Evil Companies the Free Beacon Will Accept Ad Revenue From

ocp logo

Big news today, as BuzzFeed announced it won’t accept money from the Republican National Committee because Donald Trump is terrible. Lots of outrage on the right, but I appreciate the bold stance: more media companies should admit their biases and be done with it. At least BuzzFeed is putting its money where its mouth is and foregoing the revenue altogether.

How ‘The Longest Day’ Got D-Day Wrong

Omaha Beach, sometime in June, 1944, after D-Day / AP

A recommendation for your D-Day commemorative reading: S.L.A. Marshall’s brilliant 1960 account of the assault on Omaha Beach, based on notes he took as an official Army historian during the landings in Normandy.

To say that Marshall’s account is wrenching radically understates the case. He published it in the Atlantic Monthly as a corrective to what he saw as a sanitized history of D-Day promoted by Army historians and Hollywood producers who, quite reasonably, saw the day as an American victory. It was only natural that they would focus on success stories, as Marshall explains:

#JusticeForRancor

databank_rancor_01_169_251b682f-2

I write today to mourn the passing of a beautiful creature unjustly put down in the prime years of its life for having the misfortune of being near a human being. I speak, of course, of the poor Rancor brutally slaughtered by intergalactic space terrorist Luke Skywalker.

We’ve all seen the footage of the Jedi entering the poor creature’s habitat and the carnage that follows. But have we really seen it? I mean, I don’t know about you, but it looked to me like the Rancor was simply trying to protect the fragile human who had slipped into his cave. Look at this tender image:
