Biden’s celebration of inflation was woefully premature and dramatically out of touch

While the White House was celebrating passage of the Inflation Reduction Act complete with a musical guest, inflation itself continued to ravage the economy and the Dow plunged 1,200 points.  Out of touch barely begins to describe the handling of the looming stagflationary spiral.  The experts missed it 40 years ago and they are missing… Continue reading Biden’s celebration of inflation was woefully premature and dramatically out of touch

Trump is not to blame for people’s righteous anger at the FBI

The goal of this government sponsored misdirection is the same as it’s always been:  Keep the focus on President Trump, suggesting it no longer takes two to tango as the old saying goes, rather than demanding much needed answers from the very people that plunged us into this situation to begin with. Once upon a… Continue reading Trump is not to blame for people’s righteous anger at the FBI

Love him or hate him, Trump delivered the two most conservative Supreme Court decisions in a generation on back to back days

Whatever your opinion on the former President, it’s almost impossible to imagine rulings this momentous before he announced his candidacy seven years ago this month.  There was a time before Trump.  There is a time after Trump.  The ramifications, both good and bad, still remain to be fully seen. Last week, the Supreme Court rocked… Continue reading Love him or hate him, Trump delivered the two most conservative Supreme Court decisions in a generation on back to back days

January 6: The insurrection investigation has been televised

The House Select Committee on January 6th debuted in prime time last week to much media fanfare and a large viewership, but the things they aren’t concerned about like why President Trump wanted 20,000 National Guard troops at the Capitol if he planned to mount a coup that day might tell you more about their… Continue reading January 6: The insurrection investigation has been televised

Supreme Court:  A bombshell leak overturns almost 50 years of abortion rights with a fall out that’s impossible to predict

The United States is poised to enter a brave new world after a first in history leak of a potential ruling that would overturn Roe v. Wade and return the question of abortion to the states.  We’ve never experienced anything like it, and despite the punditry, no one really knows where we go from here.… Continue reading Supreme Court:  A bombshell leak overturns almost 50 years of abortion rights with a fall out that’s impossible to predict

One year after January 6, the protection of democracy is all the rage, but what sort of democracy do Democrats have in mind?

Democrats and the mainstream media repeatedly warn that democracy itself is in peril, under attacks not seen since the Civil War, while simultaneously pushing to demolish key pillars of our system of government included but not limited to the filibuster, the Electoral College, and the composition of the Supreme Court.  It’s almost like democracy means… Continue reading One year after January 6, the protection of democracy is all the rage, but what sort of democracy do Democrats have in mind?

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

Budget Reconciliation: No longer for budgets, and the more bills the merrier, whether or not they have anything to do with one another

The Senate Parliamentarian ruled this week that the Democrats can pass as many bills as they want, contravening 50 years of precedent and further eroding the basics of the English language.  Welcome to a world where infrastructure is no longer infrastructure, budgets are no longer budgets, and one bill per year could be an infinity… Continue reading Budget Reconciliation: No longer for budgets, and the more bills the merrier, whether or not they have anything to do with one another

The filibuster is racist now too

Can someone please ask Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden why they were supporting racism for decades by liberally using the practice?  They were all for it before they were against it, but now the filibuster is a very bad tool of white supremacy, amazing how that works. Former President Barack Obama set the… Continue reading The filibuster is racist now too

Nancy Pelosi’s back as Speaker to preside over even more insanity in 2021

The Speaker continues her reign by gendering non-gendered terms, banning the words father and mother from the House rules, and inviting coronavirus positive House Members back to work, what could possibly go wrong with her in charge? “Amen and a woman,” so ended the opening prayer to start the 117th Congress. https://twitter.com/GReschenthaler/status/1345866081815187459 Foreshadowing the insanity… Continue reading Nancy Pelosi’s back as Speaker to preside over even more insanity in 2021
