Infrastructure: Key provisions and mandates that could yield poisonous fruit in the future

There’s a pilot program to track every mile and tax you for the privilege, a mandate to detect drunk driving and presumably stop your car, perhaps lock you up, a billion for “racist” infrastructure and other equity carve outs.  This is infrastructure according to Congress and the President.  There’s no vision, no plan, just dollars… Continue reading Infrastructure: Key provisions and mandates that could yield poisonous fruit in the future

The FBI raids a journalist’s home before dawn and no one seems to care

Who approved the warrant for 10 FBI agents and a battering ram in search of information regarding a supposedly pilfered diary that the journalists themselves brought to the attention of law enforcement a year ago?  Do you think the FBI would be conducting pre-dawn raids if your diary was stolen? Before dawn on Saturday morning,… Continue reading The FBI raids a journalist’s home before dawn and no one seems to care

Inflation is good, or at least nothing to worry about, so claim the experts

Who knew spiking prices and shortages of everything were a positive development?  We’ve gone from inflation wasn’t going to happen, period, to it’s happening but it’ll be short-lived, to it’s actually a good thing to begin with in less than 10 months.  The spin is strong as the experts try to explain away what’s eating… Continue reading Inflation is good, or at least nothing to worry about, so claim the experts

Dune and the inescapable insanity of woke art criticism

Dune is a good film and an even better book, but that’s not enough in the year 2021.  It isn’t a “white savior” narrative either, though someone, somewhere said it might be.  Therefore, the woke have no choice but to act as if it is, even as most of them know it’s not.  And don’t… Continue reading Dune and the inescapable insanity of woke art criticism

Biden gets a big win on infrastructure, but is missing a massive opportunity on manufacturing

The $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure plan finally passes the House of Representatives, giving President Biden a much needed political win, but instead of focusing on supply chains and manufacturing moving forward to permanently address wide-spread shortages and spiking prices, progressives continue to push massive social spending and a tax break for the rich of all… Continue reading Biden gets a big win on infrastructure, but is missing a massive opportunity on manufacturing

The ever-changing language of the left and the never ending pursuit of power

The explosion of new words and phrases, from BIPOC to Latinx to systemic racism, is no accident or organic development.  The goal is to change the terms of the debate and advance progressive policies, controlling the language to reorganize the world around intersectionality, Critical Race Theory, and other leftist goals straight out of George Orwell’s… Continue reading The ever-changing language of the left and the never ending pursuit of power

VA and NJ: The Democrat brand is completely toxic barely 10 months after President Biden took office

Once upon a time, Biden was a moderate who would bring the country together and return us to normalcy after the tumult of the Trump years.  This was a powerful message, but the reality of his presidency has been radically different and other Democrat politicians are now paying the price.

Afghanistan: We’re paying the Taliban for the privilege of blood on our hands

Hundreds of Americans remained trapped in the war-torn country, the Taliban itself has beheaded female athletes and posted grisly pictures on social media while they target female judges for execution.  Incredibly, we’re still sending them hundreds of millions of dollars in “humanitarian aid” and insist human rights is the cornerstone of our international diplomacy. Although… Continue reading Afghanistan: We’re paying the Taliban for the privilege of blood on our hands

Climate change: Young people can’t cope with the weather and experts are happy to exploit those fears for their own ends

A new study finds a large majority of people aged 16-25 suffer from “climate anxiety” and close to half report their feelings about the environment negatively affect their daily lives, but rather than recognize these fears as irrational, the experts use them to advance their progressive agenda.  It’s all green, all the time, except when… Continue reading Climate change: Young people can’t cope with the weather and experts are happy to exploit those fears for their own ends
