Biden: 1,000,000 dead, send lawyers, guns, and money, the shit has hit the fan

This week the United States is expected to pass the tragic milestone of 1,000,000 deaths attributed to the coronavirus, but both the President’s reaction and the media’s coverage are radically different than when Trump was in office.  Back then, the President had “blood on his hands” for 400,000 deaths and Biden was our savior.  Now,… Continue reading Biden: 1,000,000 dead, send lawyers, guns, and money, the shit has hit the fan

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

Trump has broken the Democrat party, driving them towards the wrong side of every issue

Last week, President Biden announced he would be going to court to prolong the pandemic over masks, while Democrats in Florida screamed and cried when a multinational conglomerate was stripped of special perks almost no other company has.  What could possibly explain this reflexive desire to take the wrong side over and over again except… Continue reading Trump has broken the Democrat party, driving them towards the wrong side of every issue

It’s long past time to discuss President Biden’s obvious mental decline

The media doesn’t seem to care, indeed is doing its best to hide it, but we cannot have a President doddering around a stage, shaking hands with the empty air without serious repercussions.  Talk of the 25th Amendment was all the rage when President Trump was in office.  We need some of that now, fast,… Continue reading It’s long past time to discuss President Biden’s obvious mental decline

Elon Musk: Are much needed changes coming to Twitter?

The world’s richest man and self-proclaimed “free speech absolutist” is now the largest shareholder of the social media platform after haranguing it as a threat to democracy for limiting speech.  This isn’t a purely academic point after the platform blatantly interfered in the 2020 election.  In a more rational and fair world, Twitter would be… Continue reading Elon Musk: Are much needed changes coming to Twitter?

Biden and the free word on the brink

The President’s trip to Europe was marred by unforced errors, a lack of any coherent strategy, no new and creative plans, and a general sense that trying hard is good enough.  Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg Biden certainly is not.  Instead, it seems he’s angling for the first Presidential Participation Trophy. Last week, President Biden traveled… Continue reading Biden and the free word on the brink

Ukraine: Just give them nuclear weapons and all our problems will be solved

If we’re willing to provide Ukraine with fighter jets and advanced weapons systems, why not just go all the way and make them a nuclear power?  Some members of Congress and the media seem confused about the meaning of the word “escalatory,” perhaps a bit of hyperbole might help them sort it out. As the… Continue reading Ukraine: Just give them nuclear weapons and all our problems will be solved

Shakespeare’s Henry V and the timeless politics of power

King Henry V is a nationalist hero to the English, a villain to the French, and likely something in between to modern audiences.  Part heroic warrior, part self-serving, calculating politician, Henry’s rise prompts timeless questions about the nature of power in general. Shakespeare’s Henry V is a subtly yet at times disturbingly contradictory character, a… Continue reading Shakespeare’s Henry V and the timeless politics of power

Russian Collusion: The Durham investigation continues apace and the media continues to deny the reality of Hillary Clinton’s role

Last week, the Special Counsel released another round of indictments which the media dutifully ignored and then promptly pretended didn’t mean anything, but one thing is clear:  The Clinton campaign was behind the hoax the entire time, funneling false reports to an incredibly naïve and corrupt FBI and the media including the original Steele Dossier,… Continue reading Russian Collusion: The Durham investigation continues apace and the media continues to deny the reality of Hillary Clinton’s role

President Biden is unhinged, or at least that’s what the media would be saying were he President Trump

Last year, I proposed the Trump Test, that is imagine your reaction if Trump was the President instead of Biden, and Trump was the one insulting reporters, tacitly granting permission for Russia to invade Ukraine, and claiming he was “outperforming” expectations in the midst of constant crises.  The media had a term for this.  They… Continue reading President Biden is unhinged, or at least that’s what the media would be saying were he President Trump
