Abortion: Two reasons the controversial issue might not be the gamechanger progressives expect

The conventional wisdom holds that abortion will be a decisive issue in the midterm elections and beyond, providing a much needed edge for Democrats, enough to defy historical trends, but there are two reasons why that might not be the case and some cracks in the wisdom are already showing. Ever since the Supreme Court’s… Continue reading Abortion: Two reasons the controversial issue might not be the gamechanger progressives expect

Biden is the worst Presidential communicator in recent memory

A recent interview with 60 Minutes’ Scott Pelley serves as a masterclass in how not to communicate.  Many of the questions were overwhelmingly obvious, but still the President was unclear, unfocused, and rambling, insulting the American people by denying what is happening before their very eyes.  Even when he speaks with clarity and conviction, his… Continue reading Biden is the worst Presidential communicator in recent memory

The border is completely bonkers and recent controversies even more so

Sometimes, it takes a political stunt to properly frame an issue, and few recent stunts have been more effective pointing out the insanity of our immigration policy and the hypocrisy of progressives than Republican governors delivering migrants to liberal enclaves.  If the freak out over a mere fifty arriving in Martha’s Vineyard is any indication,… Continue reading The border is completely bonkers and recent controversies even more so

Defund the Department of Justice?

Another round of illegal leaks concerning yet another investigation into former President Donald Trump.  Another round of speculation in the media that the walls are closing in, and all the while Attorney General Merrick Garland and his boss, President Joe Biden, continue hiding behind the idea that they can’t comment on ongoing investigations, only leak… Continue reading Defund the Department of Justice?

FBI raid:  Special masters are made for special circumstances

The Department of Justice created this mess by seizing close to a hundred times more material than they needed including personal items and privileged information they had no right to even look at, much less take.  What are we supposed to do from here, let the same people who have breached every democratic norm imaginable… Continue reading FBI raid:  Special masters are made for special circumstances

Biden fancies himself John Quincy Adams, thinks he can save America

The President delivered a primetime speech about the “continued battle for the soul of the nation,” but who is he to declare close to half the country his enemies?  What moral quality and compass does this man have to define democracy itself, proclaim himself everyone else’s better, and demand we conform to his view of… Continue reading Biden fancies himself John Quincy Adams, thinks he can save America

Biden engineered the Trump raid by manipulating legal precedent and trashing democratic norms

New memos show the White House was closely involved in the investigation before the FBI, explicitly stating that Biden would take the almost unprecedented step of waiving legitimate Executive Privilege claims to transfer information to the Department of Justice.  This means the investigation was engineered by the Biden Administration on highly suspect legal grounds, though… Continue reading Biden engineered the Trump raid by manipulating legal precedent and trashing democratic norms

Enough: Indict Trump already or give it a rest

The alternative to a trial of the former President is a continuation of the endless stream of leaks from prosecutors and misguided interpretations of the law from the real card carrying experts in the media.  If you truly believe the former President is guilty of something, let him have his day in open court. Tell… Continue reading Enough: Indict Trump already or give it a rest

Nuclear secrets and cocktail napkins, the Attorney General thinks you’re stupid and should otherwise go screw

The FBI is investigating a former President and future candidate for espionage, but neither the Attorney General nor the President feel any explanation at all is required on their part.  Instead, they plan to treat this unprecedented occurrence like a jay-walking ticket, pretending there aren’t massive conflicts of interest and political ramifications that come with… Continue reading Nuclear secrets and cocktail napkins, the Attorney General thinks you’re stupid and should otherwise go screw

Joe Biden is President George Costanza, every instinct he has is wrong

President Biden and the Democrats are poised to pass the poorly named Inflation Reduction Act to much fanfare in the mainstream media, but once upon a time even President Barack Obama knew the last thing you wanted to do was increase taxes in the middle of a recession.  This is Biden’s fourth round of stimulus… Continue reading Joe Biden is President George Costanza, every instinct he has is wrong
