General Mark Milley: Perhaps the world’s first act of treason committed purely to virtue signal to fellow elites

The idea that he needed to subvert the chain of command and spill secrets to foreign leaders to prevent a rogue nuclear attack is absurd on its face.  The system simply doesn’t work that way.  General Milley knows it and so does everyone else, making his extraordinary insubordination and potential treason a work of pure… Continue reading General Mark Milley: Perhaps the world’s first act of treason committed purely to virtue signal to fellow elites

Twenty years after 9-11, former President George W. Bush inadvertently lays bare the establishment’s battle lines against the American people

Once upon a time, George W. Bush was considered the worst president in history, a loser and a war criminal.  Then, he took on Donald Trump and his supporters, connecting the 9-11 attacks directly to both the Capitol riots and Trump supporters in general.  Now, he’s a revered elder statesman.  This is the establishment in… Continue reading Twenty years after 9-11, former President George W. Bush inadvertently lays bare the establishment’s battle lines against the American people

The enduring importance of our Constitutional order becomes more apparent by the day

American democracy can be messy and confusing, but that’s only because it’s working as intended:  Ensuring every decision of the government is subject to scrutiny, helping to keep each branch of government within the bounds of their authority, and that no single person ever is vested with unlimited authority or power.  What other alternative is… Continue reading The enduring importance of our Constitutional order becomes more apparent by the day

Coronavirus: Is it time to admit the vaccines aren’t nearly as effective as advertised and we’re going to be stuck living with the virus for an indefinite period?

Biden is doubling down on vaccines with new mandates affecting a huge percentage of Americans, even as recent evidence indicates the efficacy of the vaccine wanes over time and the vaccine itself isn’t as effective against new strains like Delta.  Why is this evidence being ignored and where do we go from here? Last week,… Continue reading Coronavirus: Is it time to admit the vaccines aren’t nearly as effective as advertised and we’re going to be stuck living with the virus for an indefinite period?

Backstreets: Is this somewhat forgotten classic actually Bruce Springsteen’s best song?

Rich lyrics with interpretations ranging from a heterosexual high school couple sneaking away from their parents to drink beer, to heroin addicts trapped on the outskirts of town, to gay lovers hiding their affair, combine with a melodic, rocking composition to create an unforgettable song.  It’s part Shakespearean Sonnet, all rock and roll, a true… Continue reading Backstreets: Is this somewhat forgotten classic actually Bruce Springsteen’s best song?

Coronavirus: Yes, the government was funding exactly the kind of research that could lead to the pandemic and Dr. Fauci lied about it

New documents unearthed by The Intercept reveal that the government was funding gain-of-function research to create mutant viruses that would more aggressively infect human beings and storing tens of thousands of viruses in unsafe labs.  Dr. Fauci lied to Congress about what we were doing, and our intelligence community seems to have no clue either. … Continue reading Coronavirus: Yes, the government was funding exactly the kind of research that could lead to the pandemic and Dr. Fauci lied about it

Biden’s in a box, the walls are closing in, and the box itself is sinking in the middle of the ocean under the weight of events

It’s not just Afghanistan and the specter of a hostage crisis with the Taliban.  Inflation is vastly outpacing job creation and driving down wages.  The border remains in crisis and the courts have ordered the reinstatement of some Trump era policies.  Violent crime is on the rise and the pandemic continues.  The best Biden can… Continue reading Biden’s in a box, the walls are closing in, and the box itself is sinking in the middle of the ocean under the weight of events

Why is abortion the only right the left doesn’t want to restrict?

From free speech to gun control, the progressive left regularly advocates for restrictions and limitations on your rights, but don’t dare try to limit abortions in any way, shape, or form.  The Texas bill is not what I would’ve passed myself, but the reaction is illustrative of how one right is elevated above all others… Continue reading Why is abortion the only right the left doesn’t want to restrict?

Impeach President Biden?

The disaster in Afghanistan has prompted multiple calls to impeach the President.  What are the grounds and what does history say in similar situations?  Before the Trump Era, no President had been impeached without being accused of a crime.  In 1868, Congress actually passed a law to entrap Johnson. Should the old rules still apply? … Continue reading Impeach President Biden?

Afghanistan: Why would we believe a word the President or the entire government says at this point?

Biden is far from the first to lie, obfuscate, and mislead on Afghanistan.  He’s part of a long line of well-documented falsehoods stretching back almost 20 years.  Everyone knew the Afghan Army was a disaster and the government was corrupt, but they moved ahead anyway, wasting billions of dollars and costing thousands of lives, ending… Continue reading Afghanistan: Why would we believe a word the President or the entire government says at this point?
