Where does Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez really fit in best with her media savvy, influencer sized social media following, and powerful perch in Congress, as a working class woman of color or a rich celebrity? The crowd she hangs out with are so powerful they will avoid any negative repercussions, and so connected they’ll likely write any… Continue reading The woke and the rich, the socialists and AOC, birds of a feather, flocking together
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
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
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
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
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?
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?
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?
As the US completes its retreat from Afghanistan, the alliances President Biden promised to rebuild are perhaps more strained than ever. The optimism of his inauguration and first international address have been replaced by blame and bickering with key allies like Britain and France openly berating the President and planning their own course in Afghanistan… Continue reading Biden’s “America is Back” is consumed by a conflagration of contradictions, betrayal, and actual flames
Where are the resignations? The leaks? The anonymous sources and Gold Star families? The profile pictures on Facebook and Twitter in solidarity with our abandoned Afghani allies? Compare and contrast the reaction to Trump pulling out of Syria without incident and Biden’s catastrophe in Afghanistan, and you tell me why the difference in coverage. It… Continue reading Afghanistan goes boom: Imagine if Trump were in office
