Uvalde: Why is anyone surprised?

There are brave police officers who would willingly risk their lives, but the leadership at a local, state, and federal level has long moved past such an old fashioned, pedestrian mission.  Why should local officials be any different than the big boys and girls in Washington, DC?  There is no doubt that the Uvalde Police… Continue reading Uvalde: Why is anyone surprised?

Poor, Poor Pitiful Biden, Part 2: This time, he’s getting angry!

NBC News reports that the President is “furious” with how people perceive him as not being in charge, “bristling” at being stifled by his staff, and “rattled” that his poll numbers have sunk lower than Donald Trump.  All that’s missing is an actual plan that would help the American people. The President is unhappy, beleaguered,… Continue reading Poor, Poor Pitiful Biden, Part 2: This time, he’s getting angry!

Ukraine: Don’t let Eurocentrism or even outright racism dictate our response

The world has no shortage of horrors, once you expand your lens beyond Western Europe.  Horrors and humanitarian crises caused by repressive, authoritarian regimes are the norm in fact, not the exception.  We should do what we can, but we can’t save everyone. Europe is supposed to be different.  These things don’t happen in the… Continue reading Ukraine: Don’t let Eurocentrism or even outright racism dictate our response

Did President Biden just have the worst first year in modern history?

The President’s approval rating is at the bottom of the spectrum for the modern era.  More people identify as Republicans than at any time since 1995, and the country is beset by challenges and crises from all sides.  For a man that promised a return to normalcy, we’ve seen nothing like it.  Of course, it’s… Continue reading Did President Biden just have the worst first year in modern history?

The Biden Administration doesn’t care what you think, and they don’t even try to hide it anymore

From inflation to the border with the pandemic and the fate of Americans held overseas in between, President Biden’s words and actions make clear he doesn’t really care what you think or the challenges you are facing.  The radical progressive agenda is paramount no matter what, but fortunately Americans are starting to notice. Earlier this… Continue reading The Biden Administration doesn’t care what you think, and they don’t even try to hide it anymore

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

Afghanistan: The military left without any concern for diplomats, allies, and equipment, how is this possible?

New reporting and testimony reveals a failure of strategic planning and coordination on a massive scale.  Obsessed with speed, the military left the country long before the deadline, leaving our diplomatic staff, allies, and equipment in the care of the Afghan Army. This fatally flawed plan was rehearsed and agreed to by all, then recklessly… Continue reading Afghanistan: The military left without any concern for diplomats, allies, and equipment, how is this possible?

Joe Biden is merely a victim of events and circumstance according to the mainstream media

Back in the real world, the flap with France, the tragic drone strike that killed 10 Afghan civilians, and the botched, politicized vaccine booster roll out are all the obvious outcomes of his own policies and governance.  Of course, the real goal is to provide cover to pass a massive, progressive spending spree that’s currently… Continue reading Joe Biden is merely a victim of events and circumstance according to the mainstream media

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

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?
