Biden: Cynical, dumb, hopeless, or all three at the same time?
The President has chosen to mount a self-interested defense of democracy as his closing message for the midterm elections rather than defend his own record. It’s one of the most cynical strategies in modern memory for furthering dividing Americans in the obvious pursuit of power.

Conservatives… Continue reading No, crime is not a “construct” created to keep the black man down

The media industrial complex backed by so-called experts and politicians pushes out panic for clicks, and the only way to avert catastrophe is to back some new government program or expansion of government power. The result is an increasing disconnect between the reality of the threats we face and the public’s perception, rendering us incapable… Continue reading Spreading fear and growing government, now as inevitable as death and taxes
The crime wave spells big trouble ahead for Biden, even CNN says so…
