AOC: The progressive victim that roared

It might be easy to dismiss Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s constant complaining and claims of victimhood were she not illustrative of the progressive movement in general, where even the highest of the high, including the President himself feigns powerlessness and pretends he’s merely a victim of events. Life is very difficult for progressive firebrand Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  We… Continue reading AOC: The progressive victim that roared

The abortion debate deserves a lot more respect and accuracy than the blatant misinformation we’ve seen so far

Consensus was never going easy, but it’s not going to be possible at all if prominent progressives continue to lie with the express purpose of terrifying some portion of the public into thinking women of all ages will be denied life saving care throughout the country. Abortion is a serious issue, morally and medically.  A… Continue reading The abortion debate deserves a lot more respect and accuracy than the blatant misinformation we’ve seen so far

This Fourth of July, progressives have no idea what democracy is except as a means to get what they want

The progressive movement is in turmoil after a string of Supreme Court decisions put power back in the hands of the legislature and protected rights enshrined in the Constitution.  The sort of things we used to call democracy with a Big-D, but those old rules no longer apply and now democracy means whatever they claim… Continue reading This Fourth of July, progressives have no idea what democracy is except as a means to get what they want

What is the proper remedy for an “illegitimate” Supreme Court?

Progressives take increasingly aggressive aim at the Supreme Court, branding it “illegitimate,” and recommending everything from expanding the number of Justices to ignoring their rulings entirely, but are any of their proposed schemes workable in the real world and what is the best way to proceed when the Court goes astray from your perspective? In… Continue reading What is the proper remedy for an “illegitimate” Supreme Court?

Border agents under fire from within while the border itself is completely broken

Democrats frequently claim they support secure borders and comprehensive immigration reform, but their actions both large and small reveal their true goal of open borders and an endless stream of migrants that we can do nothing to slow or stop. Perhaps nothing encapsulates the progressive position on the border than the Biden Administration’s ongoing efforts… Continue reading Border agents under fire from within while the border itself is completely broken

AOC is deeply confused about capitalism, socialism, and just about everything else

The progressive firebrand defines capitalism in a way no one actually believes in the 21st century, if ever.  Next, she confuses government power with corporate power, and finally she calls for “alternative ways of doing businesses” which have already been a part of capitalism for generations before demanding even more government control. “I believe that… Continue reading AOC is deeply confused about capitalism, socialism, and just about everything else

Build Back Better bites the dust, for now at least

President Biden’s signature progressive legislation fails to attract the 50 votes required for passage in the Senate after months of negotiations.  Progressives are furious, but they should’ve seen this coming all along when the bill was built on gimmicks and cheap accounting tricks with no central message or purpose.  Incredibly, it seems they are only… Continue reading Build Back Better bites the dust, for now at least

Jussie Smollett: Reactions reveal a warped vision of social justice writ large

Mr. Smollett lied to the police and fanned the simmering flames of racial resentment, but many progressives think he’s not to blame.  Instead, it’s the justice system itself or perhaps local politics in Cook County, anything but the man who perpetrated the crime. Last week, Jussie Smollet was convicted by a jury of his peers… Continue reading Jussie Smollett: Reactions reveal a warped vision of social justice writ large

Progressives remain in deep denial about the current crime wave

A brand new kind of smash and grab robberies sweeps California and elsewhere while violent crime is on the rise across almost the entire country, resulting in thousands of more deaths than less than two years ago, but some progressives deny it’s even happening, pushing ahead with a plan to empty federal prisons, and others… Continue reading Progressives remain in deep denial about the current crime wave

Rittenhouse reactions and the left’s new found right to retreat

An acquittal in a local case involving exclusively white males is cited as proof of the country’s inherent white supremacy and the need to completely abolish our current system of government.  The left also discovers a new right of retreat:  If you are attacked, you must first try to escape to their satisfaction prior to… Continue reading Rittenhouse reactions and the left’s new found right to retreat
