Delta variant: The experts declare coronavirus is back thanks to a new strain and even vaccinated people should mask up

“We’re gonna be in this state forever,” a Johns Hopkins’ professor launches a broadside at the tactics of other public health professionals and experts as the media is ablaze with concern over a new variant, slowing vaccination rates, and even more variants to come.  It wouldn’t be a pandemic without false claims of deadlier diseases… Continue reading Delta variant: The experts declare coronavirus is back thanks to a new strain and even vaccinated people should mask up

The bipartisan infrastructure push, part two: This is definitely not the way things are supposed to work

Call it a no-compromise compromise:  Democrats use the Republicans to provide their stamp of approval on a portion of their wishlist, then violate the longstanding democratic norms they claim to care so much about by going it alone on the rest.  Even more incredibly, President Biden made this announcement on the very same day he… Continue reading The bipartisan infrastructure push, part two: This is definitely not the way things are supposed to work

Britney Spears: Wow, just wow, is this really America?

The pop star appears in court to dispute the 13 year old conservatorship that has denied her basic freedoms, rights, and autonomy over her own person, even having another child.  For more than a decade, Ms. Spears’ life has not been her own.  One wonders how this is even possible in the land of the… Continue reading Britney Spears: Wow, just wow, is this really America?

NCAA: The Supreme Court deals a blow to their slave labor policy, but how was it allowed to exist in the first place?

For an organization that claims to be woke and not-for-profit, the NCAA has a lot of explaining to do.  Coaches and executives make millions, players make nothing and can’t even control the usage of their own image.  We’re told it’s for their own good, but slaveholders in the antebellum south said much the same thing… Continue reading NCAA: The Supreme Court deals a blow to their slave labor policy, but how was it allowed to exist in the first place?

Racism is real: What can we do about it?

For argument’s sake, let’s assume that everything the Critical Race Theorists and their anti-racist allies claim about institutional racism in America is true.  The question is whether or not their goal of establishing a new racial hierarchy with white people on the bottom would truly solve the problem.  Hint:  It won’t. For argument’s sake, let’s… Continue reading Racism is real: What can we do about it?

The crime wave spells big trouble ahead for Biden, even CNN says so…

President Biden plans a big speech later today to address some startling statistics: The murder rate is up almost 25%, even more in big cities and shows no sign of slowing down.  Of course, the increase in crime has absolutely nothing to do with the defund the police movement.  There’s nothing to see here, please… Continue reading The crime wave spells big trouble ahead for Biden, even CNN says so…

The bipartisan infrastructure push: This is the way things are supposed to work

From the Compromise of 1790 onward, the American system is built around establishing broad consensus for major issues, passing bipartisan legislation where both parties get something they want.  The result is increased ownership of government programs and less acrimony.  Isn’t that what everyone claims to want for America? Earlier this month, a bipartisan group of… Continue reading The bipartisan infrastructure push: This is the way things are supposed to work

What’s behind the coronavirus lab-leak theory and how can we prove it once and for all?

As new information emerges from USA Today and other sources, we can consider the evidence on both sides and how actual scientific debate can lead us to the truth.  Contrary to even current progressive opinion, there was never any real evidence that coronavirus came from a bat.  Instead, conjecture and opinion masqueraded as facts, perhaps… Continue reading What’s behind the coronavirus lab-leak theory and how can we prove it once and for all?

The woke can’t even stand the woke, but that’s not even the worst part of what’s coming

Lin-Manuel Miranda prostrating himself before the woke crowd for not being woke enough is this week’s entertaining aside, but the real fight is over the nature of truth and traditional liberal values like equality before the law, free speech, and the free exchange of ideas.  The battle lines are being drawn and the mainstream media… Continue reading The woke can’t even stand the woke, but that’s not even the worst part of what’s coming

Biden’s big overseas trip, but where’s the beef?

President Joe Biden attended two summits with other world leaders and met with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time.  There’s no question the style and tone marked a radical departure from former President Trump.  The real question is whether or not he accomplished anything except talk. President Joe Biden has had a busy… Continue reading Biden’s big overseas trip, but where’s the beef?
