The free market turns out to be not so free as the financial elite swoop in to save their own skins, literally stealing from the common folk and sacrificing our interests for their bottom line while blathering about protecting us from ourselves or something. Sound familiar? Not unlike what we saw on January 6 on… Continue reading GameStop: A populist revolt on Wall Street is quickly crushed by our financial masters, promptly compared to the attack on the Capitol by former officials

Whatever happened to democratic norms? Free speech, the filibuster, nine Supreme Court Justices, and fifty states, suddenly aren’t norms?
Freedom of speech, a norm since 1791. Filibusters since 1837. Nine Justices on the Supreme Court since 1869. 50 states since 1959. All are currently on the chopping block. It’s almost enough to make you think the raging against Donald Trump breaking political norms was just hard-nosed politics and ginned up outrage. Less than two… Continue reading Whatever happened to democratic norms? Free speech, the filibuster, nine Supreme Court Justices, and fifty states, suddenly aren’t norms?
Executive orders are the real looming Constitutional Crisis
Joe Biden breaks Donald Trump's first week record with 22 executive orders, one of which has already been halted by the courts. The increasing scope of executive orders is almost certain to provoke an honest-to-goodness crisis in the not too distant future, and yet next to no one is talking about the damage waiting to… Continue reading Executive orders are the real looming Constitutional Crisis

Cobra Kai: The woke warriors take a swing at Netflix’s hit show over representation, urge writers to “learn” and undo the “damage”
In an ironic twist, the woke community demands that a show about karate include more Asians doing karate. Isn’t that a massive stereotype and aren’t stereotypes bad? Or are they only bad in some cases? Consider it an axiom of woke culture: If something becomes popular, however fun, charming, or diverse, it will come under… Continue reading Cobra Kai: The woke warriors take a swing at Netflix’s hit show over representation, urge writers to “learn” and undo the “damage”
Biden: Nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic, now he tells us?
In a stunning reversal, President Joe Biden surrenders to the spread over the next few months and promises only to do what’s already been done. Of course, the media barely noticed, they’d rather print the new administration’s obvious hackery, without evidence as they say. Come on, give me a break, man! On Friday, President Joe… Continue reading Biden: Nothing we can do to change the trajectory of the pandemic, now he tells us?
The War on Terror, Redux: Now with more domestic spying and improved censorship
US citizens are now al-Qaida or Lost Causers after the Civil War. A former President is bin Laden or perhaps Confederate President, Jefferson Davis, maybe the founder of the KKK. His supporters are all suspects, where they gather and communicate needs to be infiltrated, and this is just the beginning. They say all that’s old… Continue reading The War on Terror, Redux: Now with more domestic spying and improved censorship
1776 cannot be cancelled: The founding of America is a singular moment in the history of the world
Joe Biden cancels the 1776 Commission in favor of the outrageously flawed 1619 Project, but the genius of the American founding and system of government is universal and will not be denied. Freedom today remains as important as it ever was. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that… Continue reading 1776 cannot be cancelled: The founding of America is a singular moment in the history of the world
Love it or hate it, it’s a whole new Washington DC and America at large with the Democrats in charge
Biden is officially sworn in as President with a big speech, bigger executive actions, an adoring mainstream media, an incoming migrant caravan, a pause on deportations, and a small crowd with most of the Capitol on lockdown while the shadow of Trump still looms. Plus, what’s this new equity word? “The contrast on display tonight… Continue reading Love it or hate it, it’s a whole new Washington DC and America at large with the Democrats in charge
Biden inspires less passion and is more boring than either of his predecessors, Obama or Trump
No one is likely to call Biden a cult leader anytime soon, the Era of Presidential Idolatry appears to be over, but is that essentially good or bad or just a thing? “I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear… Continue reading Biden inspires less passion and is more boring than either of his predecessors, Obama or Trump
